At Centenary Some girls prefer their two years of required physical education to be more on the fun side, and accordingly take dancing lessons, while others prefer a fast game of ping-pong. In the men ' s division, the exercise is usually a bit more strenuous, some join- ing the collegiate teams in their activities at the stadium, which is located only a few yards from the front door of the gymnasium. In the gym complete equipment for all phases of physical train- ing work are available. The weights, bars and tumbling mats are always in use. Baseball and softball games with commercial teams from Shreveport afford not only physical development for the player, but also interesting spectacles for observers. The Physical Education staff includes Mrs. Bryant David- son, in charge of the wom- en ' s activities; Elmer Smith, Tom Cobb, and the Head Coach and Director of the men ' s division, Curtis Parker.

Physical Education A complete, comprehensive, and beneficial program of physical education without undue emphasis on competitive sports has given Centenary an enviable place in college ranks. Modern edu- cational needs are foremost in the aims of the executives, and a varied program suitable to the needs and desires of the entire student body is available, offering beneficial instruction to those who major in this department. Archery has been revived as a favorite campus sport for mild days out of doors. Basketball in the cavernous gymnasium is not only a health builder but affords keen competition to the participants. Beautiful bridle paths offer pleasurable activity for many. The $150,000 gymnasium given the college by Mr. Arch Haynes, houses sepa- rate departments for both men and women and is the center of athletic activity at Centenary.

Centenary ' s Library: Centenary has a main li- brary of more than 23,000 volumes, selected through careful study for the needs of the students who find time for constructive study between the classes. In addition to the main library, depart- mental and special collections catalogued, swell this total by several thousand books. A collection of rare, original Audubon prints is available to the art students, and the George S. Sexton library of religious works is of great bene- fit to the ministerial students. In addition to these works the Gamble collection, founded by Mr. and Mrs. S. R. Gamble as a memorial to their son, Leon Gamble, is increased each year. Newspapers and magazines, covering practically every phase of interest, are a part of the library. A systematic expansion program is under the di- rection of the librarian, Mrs. Frank Tindol (top) who has supervision over the large reading room. Shown below is a picture of some of the historic documents which have played such an important part in the life of Centenary. These invaluable records are carefully preserved in the library where students interested in the past may trace the development of their college through the ages. -•
