w w E-h On K O S After the pomp and ceremony of their installa- tion as one of Centenary ' s newest, and still oldest, fraternity chapters had died away, the Kappa Sigmas settled down to hard work and lots of it to maintain their rightful place on the campus. It is a difficult task for any chapter to begin life again after a lapse of thirty-five years, particularly one which must uphold the traditions and standards of such a time honor- ed organization as Kappa Sigma. The fratern- ity traces its history back to the founding at the University of Virginia in 1869, but the spirit embodied in the ritual dates back to European traditions of the University of Bologna in the year 1400, where a society of students was founded and spread throughout the continent to make connections with one of the early members of Kappa Sigma who was visiting in Europe. The local chapter, though occupied with in- stallation and transition from a local to a na- tional body, has found time to pledge thirty- nine picked men, the largest group pledged by any fraternity on the campus, and numbering men in all phases of student activities includ- ing Student Senate, Maroon Shirts, the School Band, Conglomerate, Yoncopin and inter-mural sports. Many have received honors by election to honorary positions, including student ap- pointments, honorary fraternities, and Who ' s Who in American Colleges. o hJ m ' M i £ : Numbered among the prominent local alumni of the fraternity are the two federal district judges, Gaston L. Porterie and Ben Dawkins; one judge on the state appellate court, Harmon Drew; City Attorney Joe Jackson, and many others such as James E. Smitherman, Joe Barks- dale, Wilbur V. Lunn, and Melvin Johnson, at- torneys; Dr. C. P. Rutledge, Tom Tanner, Dick Hale, Marlin Drake, Douglas Chew, and Elmo Lee. CO a. w National officers and the local ' s vice-president pose . . .

H E-i o o Oh i-: l The KA ' s, not to be outdone by their newly af- filiated national competitors, walked away with a tidy collection of honors to prove that this year, as in previous years, the boys who keep an eye on heaven and the ladies can do mighty well for themselves. Early in the year they elected various and sundry members to three class officerships, four presidential posi- tions in honorary clubs and won the additional honor of having five of their members appoint- ed student assistants. When the thoughts of the college turned to foot- ball so did those of the " boys across the street " with beneficial results. They won the cup awarded to the best fraternity float in the Home- coming parade, won the football inter-mural championship for the third consecutive year, and were ably represented in the sport itself by center " Snookie " Padgett. Cheering the Gentlemen for his second year was the per- sonality boy of the campus, Mai Mcllwain, who also did an excellent job in the Student Senate and as master of ceremonies for Kapers, where as usual, the KA ' s dominated the entertain- ment world. Among the outstanding members of the chap- ter is President Lamar Bain, who guided the group through such a successful year. Equally prominent are Bill Steger, newly elected K.A. president, twice winner of the title of Most Ver- satile Boy, vice-president of the Student Body and possessor of innumerable organization titles; Mai Mcllwain and " Snookie " Padgett, whose accomplishments have been mentioned heretofore; Henry Shuey, who also holds num- erous student body and honorary offices, and Burchall Lyles, elected Centenary ' s Most Hand- some Boy. Newcomer to the " mansion " this year was Mrs. Mollie Mcllwain, who served the group as housemother and helped Prexy Bain keep the boys in line, for with the accumulated honors of the year — the KA ' s are hard to hold. President Lamar Bain and Billy Minis AUums examine the charter . . . KA ' s study and gossip at " the Mansion " be- tween classes . . . This goes on all the time; Knight, Steger, Bain, and Shuey have a friendly game . . . Word and the K. A. house glimpsed through the trees. K A P
