KAPERS Not only that, but Kapers is old enough now to have a tradition. Built up since its 1933 in- ception, some of that tradition consists in fre- quent guest appearances of former Kaperites, a fairly definite season of faithful bookings, a several days tour through North and Central Louisiana, and a grand finale at the home per- formance which closes the season. There are, however, a lot of things about Kol- lege Kapers which make it unique and set it apart from other college and amateur variety shows. In the first place, it is a purely self- financing organization with its own properties, stage sets, and lighting-system; secondly, no student performer receives any remuneration or college credit other than the satisfaction of a job well-done; thirdly, it has maintained a con- sistently high standard of entertainment. In its six-year history it has given nearly two hun- dred performances in over fifty different towns, remained essentially the same as originally planned, stilled reformers ' voices who protested at it, proven itself truly representative of Cen- tenary College life, had no unsuccessful sea- son. And so Kollege Kapers peacefully slumbers until sometime next season. Helen Dwire and the orchestra . . . What ' s the secret, Parry? . . . Billy Katherine in her " ballet " number . . .

KOLLEGE Early each spring Kollege Kapers noticeably stirs, ripens, and buds with new life. However, months before this first public sign of life stage- struck students have been dancing, singing, emoting, joking the current show into shape. Under the watchful eye of Dr. S. D. " Doc " More- head, dozens of young hopefuls annually come out and make their bid for a place in the show. For about four weeks the college chapel is a hellacious place filled with the groaning, sway- ing, chattering, tooting, banging, shouting throes of try-outs. Then, at length, by dint of hours of painful list- ening, correcting, questioning, and coaching a cast is selected. This year thirty-five exhibi- tionistic collegiates comprised it. For something over ninety minutes the final version showed them exuding youthful vigor and collegiate pep in a variety of ways — mainly singing, dancing, skitting, dramacting, and " swinging " to the tunes of the Kollege Kapers orchestra. Over five thousand rustic nightlifers, small town civic groups, high school students, collegi- ates and co-eds, to say nothing of numerous school teachers and even several ministers, viewed " Kapers on Tour " in their sixth season. Nearly all were unanimous in saying that the 1939 show was better than any previous one. And it probably was, for this year ' s show was the best equipped, largest cast, most experi- enced, and fullest booked ever. The annual four finds the cast assembled and look- ing very cheerful at the prospect of a fine trip.

Coach Beinie Howard and his team horn Stephen F. Austin congratulate t h e ' winning Centenary debat- ers — Robert Webster and John Dixon. Shown here are Coach Bernie Howard and the girls ' team from Stephen F. Austin, and Centenary ' s Lois Millwee and Dorothy Jane Dixon, who won the debate under the direction oi Coach Bryant Davidson. In the bracket labeled " Debating " this year were filed three boys and two girls who went through the season making pungent remarks about " pump-priming " and holding forth staggering statistics in defense of their respective stands. Handicapped by the lack of a full time debate coach and a heavy schedule of classes, Lois Millwee, Dorothy Jane Dixon, Robert Webster, John Dixon, and Bernard Schram went through tw o tournaments and several odd debates with such opponents as Louisiana Tech, Hendrix, Stephen F. Austin, Southwestern Institute, Baylor, T. C. U., Texas A. M., and Rice. Of these members all are eligible for membership in the national debating fraternity, Pi Kappa Delta, but only Bernard Schram and John Dixon possess the key of the order by virtue of their upper class ranking. The former likewise has been awarded the degree of honor in the fraternity. In the oratorical division, Shelton Boyce and Virginia Carlton represented Centenary at the state contest held here. All these young hope- fuls work under the sponsorship and supervision of Professor C. Bryant Davidson, Professor Darrell Overdyke, and Doctor S. A. Steger. In addition to tournaments in Natchitoches and Pineville, the team made an extended five-day trip through Texas, and entertained various college teams on their home campus. DEBATE CLUB
