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.

The Footba Season Opens Football lettermen discuss the prospects of the season at a pre-game broadcast. Referees and players talk things over before the game as the season gets under way. Programs are sold by the Freshmen football- ers to the fans who flock in for a home game. Maroon Jackets lead the singing while the crowd stands for the Alma Mater at the first game — played at night against Louisiana Normal. Another sidelight on the Normal game — Freshmen scramble for slippers in the center of the field at the half.
