RUSH WEEK Preparations for Rush Week include redecorating old houses and building new ones to impress prospective pledges. The Sigma Phi lodge is one of the most attractive of the new cam- pus homes. After bids are extended and accepted, the Chi Os and their brand new pledges make merry on the porch of their recently renovated house. As a climax to a formal rush party, the Zetas and their rushees take a trip to the stars via an airplane ride, an unusual aspect of the high pressure campaigns that are carried on prior to pledging. On pledge night, the new K.A. fresh- men parade over the campus in lock step formation. At each lodge they pause in their grand tour to serenade other new pledges, and are rewarded with punch and cake for their efforts. Here the Alpha Xis listen to their rendi- tion of " The Kappa Alpha Rose. "

SCHOOL OPENS Freshmen get all in a dither while up- perclassmen take things easy during registration. The library is the center of attention for there the all-important grade book is secured and schedules handed out so that the student ' s future career may be mapped out. The bookstore does a booming business as school opens. Text books, papers, and notebooks are much in demand and Brother Riggs has a hard time waiting on customers. Another event is the first game of the season when, pajama clad Freshmen boys and gingham dressed Freshmen girls are put through the ropes by their upper classmates. Still another sign of the opening of school is picture week, when all good students come to the aid of the Yonco- pin and have their pictures made.

HOMECOMING DAY Homecoming Day at Centenary is the occasion for much celebration, marking the return and reunion of ex-students and the high point of the football season. In addition to all the pomp and ceremony accompanying the coronation of the newly elected Homecom- ing Queen, there is an especially planned program for the alumni. Registration begins Friday morning and on that day there is a chapel program devoted to the old grads. Evening brings the annual open house at the gym, where the members of each gradu- ating class are introduced, followed by the traditional bonfire and pep meeting. The morning of the big game itself finds the entire student body lining up for the parade, led by the band and the fire truck, draped with the former and present Maroon Jackets. After the parade and broadcast down town the crowd adjourns to the football stadium for the game of the year. At the half, the band again demonstrates its skill at march- ing, former lettermen and Maroon Jackets are introduced, and — the event of the day — the Queen of Homecoming is officially crowned. This year Mary Agnes Railsback, popular senior, ruled over the Homecoming festivi- ties, attended by the Queens of former years as her Maids of Honor. Despite the one point defeat at the hands of Arizona, students and ex-students alike enjoyed the cel- ebration, and, after visiting the various fraternity and sorority houses after the game, they returned to their respective walks in life and the curtain was rung down on another suc- cessful Homecoming.
