tL • THE W. A. A. AT PLAY The local chapter of the W.A.A., national organization of women athletes, was in- augurated at Centenary in the year 1924- 25. Under the sponsorship of Mrs. David- son, the chapter has advanced until it has become one of the most active of the school organizations. " Never an idle mo- ment " is the motto of this group of girls. The sports year was ushered in by mixed tournaments in ping pong and badminton. Here the fairer sex showed the Gentlemen that they were not the only ones who could come to the front in athletics. In- structed by " stars " of Centenary varsity, they learned many of the technical point- ers of basketball, to the improvement of their playing ability.

The college would not be the same without the co-eds, who — in addition to their decorative qual- ities — play such an important part in campus af- fairs that to them — the " better half " of Centenary — we dedicate this section. CO-ED ACTIVITIES

Volley ball, a favorite of many erstwhile athletes became prominent just as the campus succumbed to the well-known " spring fever " . Pleasant afternoons, otherwise spent lazing or day dreaming, provided the W.A.A. with amusement and exercise. The girls ' tennis team really came into its own this year, staging workouts each afternoon and playing many practice games. Heretofore the boys have monopo- lized the tennis field, but at last the girls are coming to the fore and developing some stars of their own. Matches with various other schools were scheduled and prospects for a successful season are bright. As for parties, this group had its share. Resolving never to have the same kind of entertainment twice, the organization gave many original parties through-out the year. A picnic, a horseback riding party, a hayride, a bicycling party, and an overnight trip to Camp Margaret Hutchinson did their part to make the program varied. The meetings, presided over by President Joyce Reed, were very informal in nature. After the business was discussed, plans for parties were made, and as a suitable climax, re- freshments were served. Another project sponsored by the W.A.A. is Stunt Night, which is held every April first. Every organization on the campus presents a skit of some type in an effort to win the " loving cup " offered for the most amusing feature of the program. This year the first prize — a candy filled meas- uring cup — went to the Kappa Alpha ' s for their amusing bit of " insanity. " Terminating the year ' s campus activities is the annual banquet, which is the occasion for awarding the letters and — most coveted honor of all — the blanket. Last year Edna Earle Richardson was the re- cipient of this honor, having been the most outstanding member of the organization.
