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. -•

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.

The College Chapel, situated in the center of the campus and surrounded by majestic pine trees, is the focal point from which student religious activities emanate. Religion On the Campus: Centenary is one of the outstanding colleges affiliated with the Meth- odist Church. Its teachings are non-sectarian, and many creeds are represented in both the faculty and student body. Earnest effort is made to strengthen the impulse toward Christian life and serv- ice. Church loyalty is fostered by chapel services at which ministers from the various Shreveport churches appear as guest speakers. Bible courses under the direction of Dean Emeritus R. E. Smith, (picture at lower left) are open to all students and advanced courses are offered those preparing for the ministry. At right: Dr. R. E. Pope (center) guest speaker for the annual observance of Religious Emphasis Week, and A. C. Voran, student advisor (extreme right) are shown with a group of student religious leaders.
