Sherman, Ethel Kramer, Elizabeth Davis, Arthur Crawford, Sudie Baker Long before bells tolled the opening day of school, Conglomerate heads were busy planning the 1939- 1940 year at Centenary from the newshound ' s standpoint. It was decided to make the weekly publication become more and more an expression of student opinion rather than that of the staff. With this view in mind students were interviewed and these interviews published, showing the male ver- sion of, or aversion to, female dress, and vice versa; with the result that several spirited controversies on this and other topics under discussion were raised. A double edition of the Conglomerate was on hand to greet the returning alumni on Homecoming Day, and a special Christmas edition was given to the students. One of the biggest hits in the paper this year was the mysterious appearance of a series of murder mysteries, in which campus personalities

YONCOPIN STAFF This year was an inspiring one for the Yoncopin staif. Growth and development are always exciting to record, particularly when of the type that occurred at Centenary since the last publication date of the an- nual. Members of the staff, headed for the second year by Grace Julian, found much to spur their pens when the time came to record the story of the year. A new building — the ever popular Sub — had opened. A change in the athletic department was made. Two new fraternities made their appearance on the cam- pus, along with the many new faces which each registration date brings. Along with these marks of devel- opment, the Yoncopin also had the job of reporting the many varied phases of student activity and of recording the results of the c ontests it sponsors. True to the trend of the times, the Yearbook adopted a more informal style of presenting these events; and more pictures, more individuality, and more humor were the results. To this end, the staff spent most of its evenings scribbling away in the newly renovated office which has for years been the retreat of the journalistically inclined. Incidentally, this year ' s staff will vie for beauty honors with any other similar organization in the country for, with the exception of artist Bill Graham and humorist Frank Word, the members were as fair a set as could be assembled at one time. Tending to financial affairs this year was Business Manager George Fair, and the whole set-up was again under the supervision of Professor Robert See. Some of the staff check lists . . . The Assistant Editor, Business Manager, and Editor comment on proofs . . . Files, names, names, tiles — This could go on forever . . . Humor Editor Frank Word and Artist Bill Graham seem to enjoy their work . . .

GLOMERATE were annihilated in clever literary form, to the deliqht of the reading public. As usual, " Conglomeration " ranked high in the favor of readers, who prefer their dirt dished out straight. Editor Beatrice Carlton, assisted by Ursula Crawford and Russell Stewart, associate editors, pulled the curtains on several scoops during the school year, while Business Manager Rollo Florsheim kept up with the financial end, thus assuring a prosperous and happy year to the " Of- ficial Publication of the Oldest College West of the Mississippi. " Editor Beatrice Carlton, Business Manager S. E. Florsheim and Associate Editor Ursula Crawford look through the morgue lor a cut. Another Associate Editor, Russell Stewart, comments on the finished copy while Reporter Frank Word smiles over the Editor ' s shoulder. Bea goes to work while the hired help stands around with varying expressions of amusement or concern on their faces.
