The largest student body assem- bly in Centenary ' s history tilled the chapel to over-flowing on registration day. EVENTS O F The college year of ' 39- ' 40 was crowded with events of lasting importance for students at Centenary; some of which are noteworthy of special mention here. Those things which are Big News today may have passed into the limbo of forgotten things before another year has rolled ' round, or they may con- tinue to have a lasting influence and significance. Time will tell. At any rate, these are the events which made Centenary history of this year. Football, or the lack of it, received its share of attention this year as always . . . The Sub, hang-out for freshman and senior alike, was the best thing that has hap- pened to the college in many a decade, and promises to continue in popularity for many more.

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.

The Headline Forum conducted by Pioiessor Davidson (center) over a local radio station aroused much interest in current events. THE EAR An annual affair, the Pre-Med Reunion attracted many former students back to the college for a day of scientific discussion and debate. Prominent speakers addressed the group at the banquet given in the Student Union that night and the whole meeting was a pronounced success . . . One of the year ' s most pleasant surprises was the presentation of a streamlined, maroon and white water wagon to the team by the members of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, who conducted a secret campaign for funds and gave it to the Gents for a Homecoming present . . . The Centenary Symphony Orchestra was a source of interest and enjoyment for music lovers throughout the spring concert season . . . On the re- signation of Coach Curtis Parker, former Centenary star Jake Hanna took over the reins of the athletic department, which was another outstanding event in a crowded year.
