The German Club gets in line lor some knowledge while assembled in Hen Phelps ' loom Officers President Beatrice Carlton Vice President Ursula Crawford Secretary Randolph Mayer Treasurer Price Eubanks Faculty Members Dr. and Mrs. W. G. Phelps, Darrell Overdyke Cora Burton Beatrice Carlton Ursula Crawford Dorothy Jane Dixon Price Eubanks Members Cleve Farnell ouida guice Elizabeth Ives Randolph Mayer Kathleen McSween Bachman Narors Edgar Percy Frances Perkins Joe Slattery Frank Word The German Club, in its brief life span of two years, has made such significant advances that a secure future as one of the prominent language clubs of the campus seems assured. The remarkable progress of the group is due both to the wise and capable supervision of Professor W. G. Phelps and to the un- usually high standards set by the organization as a whole and by each of the individual members in his pursuit of learning in the field of German culture. To further this interest in the fatherland, at all meet- ings the minutes are written and reported in German, a speaker addresses the group on some particular phase of their common subject, and most enjoyable of all, folk songs are always sung before the group adjourns. One of the featured speakers this year was Mr. Arno C. Halbfass of the Foreign Travel Bureau. As a climax to an active, eventful year the group celebrates with a complete German Banquet; every- thing from the bill of fare to the speeches shows the influence of a year ' s concentration and study. For the future, the organization has a calendar full of ambitious plans, and consequently, much may be expected of this comparatively young, but superlatively industrious group. THE GERMAN CLUB

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.

Founded in 1937 by five future teachers who wished to extend their scholastic endeavor in a definite direction, the fraternity has flourished under the sponsorship of Mr. Ewerz, head of the Department of Education, and now numbers twenty-four active and interested members. These students are picked from the upper percentage group of all the educa- tion classes and must conform to certain standards to be eligible. They must be vitally interested in this particular field; they must maintain at least a " B " average; and they must pass the unanimous vote of the chapter before a bid can be extended. These bids are offered once a term and pledging is limited to ten students, so all who possess the gold key of Chi Sigma Nu can be justly proud of the ownership. The monthly meetings are held in the homes of the members and are marked for their interest and ever present refreshments. Due to the predominance of the fair sex in the teaching field, all the members, until the last initiation, have been girls. On this occasion, however, four boys were elected to the organization, and, though still in the minority, they are rapidly asserting themselves as prominent members of the fraternity. From time to time, outstanding educators in this locality hold an informal round table discus- sion with the group; chief among these have been Mr. E. Weldon Jones, Superintendent of Education in Caddo Parish, and Mr. Van Slate, Principal of the Southfield Progressive School. Chi Sigma Nu is under the able supervision of Professor Ewerz. The members of Chi Sigma Nu interrupt their study of education to smile pleasantly at the Cameraman.
