Playful students peppered each other with snow halls, preferring to suiter the penal- ty of frozen fingers than miss any of the fun. Fieak weather was only one of the things that made life at Centenary exciting during the past year. First came the snow, and happy stu- dents cut classes right and left to enjoy it. Hard and glistening, the snow blanketed the campus in quiet, except on the parking lot and the walks leading to the Sub, where playful footballers made life miserable for those con- scientious students who were trying to make classes on time. Fur coats, mittens, boots, and ear muffs made their appearance but proved pitifully inadequate against snow ball bar- rages, and frozen toes and fingers were the order of the day. For a week, the campus remained a shining fairyland, decorated with countless snow men and glittering icicles then the sun appeared and grumbling collegians spent the next week wading through mud and slush and wishing they ' d never heard of the Big Snow. Falling snow flakes dotted the air and drove the inmates ol Rotary Dorm indoors . . . The Chapel looked like a pretty Christmas card, when glimpsed through the pines . . . The Sub, belore the many snow lights made it unsale lor wandering students. SNOW

Helen Webb and the Zetas retained possession of the coveted Sponsor Cup for the second successive year, outdistancing all competitors in the race held annually by the Yoncopin to determine its Spon- sor. In this contest the winner is decided by the amount of money turned in by each girl and whoever presents the most cash for yearbook ads, signatures, annuals, and padded covers sold receives the award. Thus it is an honor not easily won and possession of it indicates hard work and lots of it. For the first time in the history of the contest, the trophy and award was received by the girl who had won it the previous year; and she not only keeps the cup on the Zeta mantel for another year, but is again entitled to a trip to the New York World ' s Fair — which was offered as first prize. Second to Helen Webb at the final count was Nancy Mills of Chi Omega, while Shirley Safford of Alpha Xi Delta was third. If the Zeta candidate should receive the award next year, the lodge will receive permanent pos- session of the cup, since three successive years in first place would entitle the sorority to this priv- ilege. A safe prediction for the future would be that next year ' s contest will be an exciting one, since the other groups will endeavor to prevent this. And there are critics who wonder what the Zetas will do when money-making Helen Webb graduates. Contestants Helen Webb, Nancy Mills and Shirley Saflord check up on returns . . . Others in the run- ning look over receipt books . . . Helen Webb, Olga Thibodeaux, Ethel Shropshire, and Roberta Wil- liamson read the announcement ot the contest . . .

STORM Quite in contrast to the smooth serenity of the snow was the havoc wrought by cyclonic winds which swept through the campus and left destruction in their wake. Damage to build- ings was slight, but one fraternity house was utterly demolished, another pushed off its foundation, and roofs were ripped off, windows broken, and trees blown down all over the forty acres. Two Centenary students were seriously injured, but were able to return to classes after a week or so in the hospital, and the college was fortunate in escaping so lightly. On the evening of March twelfth a lowering sky and a severe hail storm were the only warnings of the terrific winds that were to fol- low, destroying in a few minutes much that has yet to be repaired. Dormitory residents volunteered for rescue work and campus crews pitched in to help restore some order out of chaos, and the dawn found things going on much as usual, in spite of the Big Wind. An uprooted giant graphically illustrates the force oi the wind . . . The Music Hall was al- most washed away by heavy rains . . . The Kappa Sig ' s view the remains. The storm converted many a tall tree into splinters.
