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.

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

Under the guidance of the capable John Wray Young, this organiza- tion presents a one-act play at each meeting, a three-act play in chapel during the course of the year, and as the climax to a successful season, the Senior Play. The college at large shows their appreciation by turning out one hundred per cent for the productions. Several members of this association, such as President Mal Mcllwain, and Bill Morris have scored hits in the Little Theatre of Shreveport, while the rest of the group takes great interest in them, at- tending rehearsals, and studying Director Young ' s technique in casting and directing the play. The radio stations also received their share of attention, for many of the Dramatic Club members have been heard via the network, while others have made interesting tests with recordings to note their progress in speech and diction. All in all an enviable record has been set by the members of this group, whose " actor ' s blood " seems to stir them to achievements worthy of the older and more firmly established organizations whose efforts they always equal and frequently surpass, thus proving that this particular theatri- cal star is destined for a big-time career.
