THE FRENCH CLUB Officers President Marie Lamarque Vice President Betty Mason Secretary-Treasurer Dorothy Kelly Virginia Adair Carolyn Adkinson Irene Baker G. L. Blaxton Margaret Brown Claudia Dickson Ethel Fulton Members Martha Hamner George Hearne Bette Heath Helen Heath Dorothy Kelly Frances Kizer Marie Lamarque Betty Mason John Marshall Eileen Maynard Jean Miles Mary Minta Moore Jo Beth Nelson Virginia Reily Edv in Whited Under the direciion of Dr. E. L. Ford the French Club, an old and active organization, continues to grow in numbers and activities, lending much prestige to the Foreign Language Department. Eligible for membership in this carefully selected group are twenty-five students who succeed in making and main- taining a " C " average in French, which, according to the would-be-members, is quite a difficult thing to do. Those industrious enough to make the grade meet on the second Tuesday of every month where discussions are carried on, games are played, and even the refreshments are served in French. As vacation time draws near, many fortunate students make their preparations for the European tour sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Ford. Highspot of the trip is the visit in France, under the guidance of one who knows the people and the customs thoroughly and who can thus furnish many interesting side- lights seldom gained in an ordinary tour. This combination of travel and study, plus three hours of col- lege credit, makes this a rare opportunity for any student able to make the trip. Another feather in the " chapeau " of this group is the active part taken by its members in the meetings of the Modern Language Club. Many of the interesting programs presented during the year were under the supervision of the French Club. The French Club holds an informal meeting on the Arts Building steps

PI MU SIGMA Officers President Russ Beeman Vice-President Billy Mims Allums Secretary-Treasurer Carlton Graff Pi Mu Sigma, the honorary pre-medical fraternity organized in 1925, lists among its members those with enough of " the scientific mind " to make the required grades and then pass the vote of the chapter. For the past few years the males could boast complete possession, but this term Beverly Blood suc- ceeded in overcoming the powerful opposition and became the only co-ed in the group. The meetings, presided over by Russ Beeman, are the source of much interest as well as entertain- ment. Such well known speakers as Dr. Knighton and Dr. Abramson have addressed the group on vari- ous subjects and have led discussions on current problems and observation in medicine. But interested as they are in serious questions involving some aspect of their chosen profession, the Pi Mu Sigmas have their lighter side too. This is evidenced in their numerous picnics and their hilarious initiations, which leave their imprint on the faces of the new members for several days afterwards. Chief activity of the year is the annual reunion in April of all the former pre-medical students of Cen- tenary, who return to recount their various experiences to the present crop. The organization is deserved- ly proud of several of its alumni who are doing important work in medical school; among them Arthur Addison, Norman Woody and Herman Goldsby, and, under the capable sponsorship of Miss Mary Warters, hopes to produce many more equally excellent students.

White Margaret Williams W. C. Yancey, Jr. The second Wednesday of each month is devoted to the members of the Spanish Club, who gather at regular intervals to spend an evening in the atmosphere of old Spain before resuming their journey on the rocky road to learning. At these meetings a program is presented and a qualified speaker ad- dresses the group on some phase of Spanish life. One of the most interesting of these talks was that given by Mr. Harry Shepherd, a newspaper correspondent, who related his experiences in the Spanish war where he saw service and was wounded. In addition to these monthly meetings the Spanish Club sponsors the annual chapel program on Pan- American Day. Here songs and dances from the South American nations are interpreted by students, talks on the significance of this day to the United States are given, and a stronger bond between the two countries is thus established. Chief festivity of the year is the traditional Spanish banquet, usually held at a Mexican cafe, where enchilladas, tortillas, hot tamales and other typical dishes are served to the tune of " El Rancho Grande " and " La Cucuracha, " as sung by the members or played on the guitar. For the success of this most novel banquet, as well as for its other ventures, the organization owes much to the sponsorship of Professor White and Mrs. Morwood, who have devoted so much time, both in and out of class, to the furtherance of interest and appreciation of all things Spanish.
