To the student who is intelligent, industrious, and interested belongs the distinction of membership in one of the various honorary or departmental or- ganizations of the campus, which recognize and reward ability and furnish added incentive to study. HONORARY and DEPARTMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS

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

After its members have suc- ceeded in passing the rigid entrance requirements of this last retreat of learning and wisdom, they certainly are entitled to a long rest upon their laurels. This year Alpha Chis grew so scarce on the campus that the race appeared threatened with extinction, only four members surviving last year ' s graduation, which seriously depleted their ranks. However, after several potential candidates had suc- ceeded in struggling through their mid-semester exams, the fraternity ' s prospects became brighter and fourteen new names were added to the roster. The addition of this new blood was a source of pride both to the organization and to the lucky new members who now have proof of the fact that they possess the best grades on the campus. Alpha Chi meets only occasionally and always for some specific purpose. Their chief activities are electing new members, awarding a leather, gold-engraved notebook to the most deserving freshman, and sponsoring a chapel program dedicated to their patron goddess of Wisdom. Since the founding of the fraternity in 1925, only the most intelligent and most active students have been eligible for mem- bership, and the society can truthfully boast that it comprises the cream of the crop, scholastically speaking. The signal honor of receiving the Alpha Chi notebook goes this year to Charles Knight on the basis of his excellent scholastic record and participation in extra-curricular activities. The Alpha Chis spend the remainder of their time upholding their reputation as the smart set of the cam- pus, and serving as a model for all the little Alpha Sigma Pi ' s, whose dearest wish is to be an Alpha Chi when they grow up.
