STUDENT BODY OFFICERS Elected by their fellow students to officiate as Student Body and Student Senate leaders for the year were- — ■ President " Rocks ' Rawlinson, Vice-President Cyrus Kil- gore, Co-ed Vice-President Catherine Loyd, Secretary Edna Earle Richardson, and Treasurer Virginia Carlton, ■who made a very thorough job of it. President Rawlinson recognizes a speaker in Student Senate meeting, where every two weeks a group o students interested in the progress and development of their college gather to discuss plans which will contri- bute to a greater Centenary. Chief goal of the year was the abolishing of campus politics, an ambitious project which met with a surprising amount of success.

THE 1939 YONCOPIN For years, Centenary College has been represented to its students and to the collegiate world in general through the medium of the Yoncopin, and for an equal number of years, a harrassed staff has struggled, agonised and despaired over its publication. For working on a year book in any capacity is the most dif- ficult, most thankless and most discouraging task ever to be assigned an ordinary mortal. To represent faith- fully and completely the events of a school year without arousing the ire of faculty or students, to satisfy each of a thousand individuals on each of a thousand different points, to construct a book that is mechani- cally up to standard, and still keep within a limited budget is the sort of problem that confronts the would-be editor. Add to this the innumerable little details that arise every day — the misplaced copy, the people who won ' t have their pictures made, the ones that do and then blame the result on the yearbook, the cuts that get lost, the pictures that mysteriously disappear, the clubs that send in incomplete information and then object if one item is omitted — and you have the makings of a nervous breakdown or a good case of jitters at the least. As if this wasn ' t enough already; this year the Yoncopin staged a series of contests to determine the qualities, and the people who best represented them, of the Centenary Gentleman and his Lady. Elec- tions being what they are, the results met with such a storm of protests from the losing candidates that the staff was forced to conceal itself behind locked doors and wait until the general wrath had subsided. As spring came on the rest of the students shed their fur coats and proceeded to enjoy the long, sunny aft- ernoons by loafing around the campus. Not so the staff. These poor unfortunates could be discovered at any hour of the day or night pounding out copy in a frenzied rush to meet the printer ' s deadline. To add to the general confusion, the Sponsor Contest got under way about this time and even the office — the last retreat of the harrassed staff was snowed under by tickets, contracts, and contestants. This year the Yonco- pin, in a philanthropic mood, offered a trip to the World ' s Fair to the lucky winner, which created much addi- tional interest. When a semblance of law and order finally comes to the thoroughly weary group of amateur journalists and they have time to stop a moment and think over the trials and tribulations of the past year, they sincerely and earnestly vow never to pick up a pencil again on behalf of the Yoncopin, but next year finds them all back at their desk, full of optimism and enthusiasm, and ready to start back at the old grind again.
