Th 939 The marching band in full regalia with the Maroon Jackets very much in the background Sweetheart Wini Boles and Director Lincoln Igou smile lor their respective publics The Centenary Band shoved " Sugar Blues " up on the shelf this year and turned orthodox in a big way, desert- ing swing for symphony and becoming a bona fide college band (whatever that is) instead of a group of knocked- out musicians. The change was due to the switch in directors, for — as de- creed by the National Association of Schools of Music — the college band must be under the supervision of the Music School and thus Doc and his trombone gave way to Igou and his baton so that Centenary might maintain its standing in this federation. This was not the only innovation the year brought for the Maroon and White Band, however. New, too, was Drum Major Adam West who presented Cen- tenary fans with a superior brand of twirling not often seen in this or any other vicinity. In addition to his bag of

THE CONGLOMERATE The beginning of the school year saw the presses start rolling as the first Conglomerate of the sea- son made its appearance on the campus to greet the students as they returned for registration. Thereafter every Friday morning saw the campus blossom forth with Conglomerates as Cen- tenary ' s weekly newspaper brought the news of ccming and past events, sports accounts, social re- ports, and the inevitable gossip column to the student body. This year the Conglomerate staff remains practically the same, Virginia Carlton again serving as Editor-in-Chief, assisted by several of last year ' s scribes. The work of these old hands might ac- count for the order and regularity of publication which distinguishes the Conglomerate from her sis- ter the Yoncopin, since experience is a great teacher in this particular field. Chief activities of the newspaper year were the publication of double size editions at Homecoming, Graduation, and other important occasions, and the various staging of several contests; — the one which aroused the most comment, being the now famous six-shooter contest, whereby students, under the cloak of anonymity, " bumped off " six of their pet hates verbally. Most of the student body elections were conducted through the medium of the Conglomerate also. Among the improvements which the year brought to the paper were the addition of more pictures, more interesting editiorials, and more graphic news reports — all of which contributed to the increase of the reading public. In its own particular way, the Conglomerate has served the student body well, preserving a complete account of the school year for future readers in the black type of its pages. Never spectacular or sensational, it has presented the news of Centenary and the rest of the collegiate world in a manner worthy of the traditions of this institution. The events, the humor, the fortunes and misfortunes of the entire year are held between its pages to interest, entertain and inspire all of the students through the years to come. Editor Virginia Carl- ton and assistants examine the result of their labors

Centenary Band tricks with the shiny stick, Adam possessed enough ability to marshall the band into a semblance of order and teach them various routines, at the same time demonstrating his most excellent drum tech- nique between marching intervals. Another feature was the purchase of handsome maroon uniforms for the band and some very extra special outfits for the drum major and the two bell lyre players. When the members were completely arrayed the band took up the business of marching very seriously. Led by the Maroon Jackets, they practiced for hours every day perfecting such tricky routines as the " Three Blind Mice " round, the in- tricate Tech-Centenary monogram, and the even more intricate spelling of Loyola and other letter forma- tions. The only disappointment of the year was the unfortunate T.C.U. Special, when the band arrived in Fort Worth just in time to dash on the field at the half and breathlessly go through their paces after a long, delayed train ride. But participation in numerous parades and campus celebrations occupied so much of the band ' s time that this minor calamity was soon forgotten. Homecoming, with its numerous pep meetings, bonfires, and other festivities, claimed so much attention that the band members had little time for other activities, devoting themselves exclusively to the preparation of a good show for the return- ing " old grads. " With this successfully accomplished, the boys suddenly realized that something was lacking, and promptly elected Wini Boles as Band Sweetheart for the remainder of the year. The diminu- tive Wini was presented officially at the last game of the season thus winding up a band year full of innovations, activity, and interest — and a most successful one at that. 1.
