Candle Lighting Ceremony One of Centenary ' s most beautiful traditions is the annual Candle Lighting Ceremony, when, clad in white vest- ments, the Seniors light the candles of the Juniors and thus pass on to them the ideals and love which have been instilled in them during their four years within the college walls. Sponsored by the Centenary Women ' s Club, under the direction of Mrs. R. E. Smith, the ceremony was held this year at the last chapel assembly before the holidays. Two lines of Freshmen and Sophomores filed in bearing great chains of wreaths of evergreens which they placed along the chapel walls. Following them, the white robed Seniors and Juniors entered on opposite sides and slowly marched to the front of the building where the candles of the Juniors were lit from those of the Seniors, thus sym- bolizing the handing down of Centenary ' s traditions and ideals to the group who will carry them on in the coming year.
