CENTENARY ' S BAND During the school year 1939-1940 the Band division of the Centenary School of Music, under the di- rection of O. Lincoln Igou, and the student management of Russell Stewart, rendered increasing service to the community and campus. A larger number of musicians and better instrumentation were only two of the great improvements over the preceding years. Probably the most spectacular innovation was the method of using flashlights to make formations at the night games. This novel method of illumination intrigued spectators and band members alike, for it necessitated a great deal of running around on a darkened field, with the result that neither audience nor band knew what might happen next. The band practices a new number to entertain Saturday ' s football crowds. The colorful maroon and white uniforms of the band and Maroon Jackets are being recognized as representative of the progress of present and future years of music appreciation. The band, led by the Maroon Jackets, performed at all the home games and made two trips, one to Rice Institute in Houston on October 7, and the other to Louisiana Tech at Ruston on November 30. A large number of students and faculty members attended both of these games, also. During the fall, the Maroon Jackets and band participated in three downtown parades, where Drum Major Charles Strickland made a lasting impression with his flaming baton. Lorraine ORoark, pop- ular and prominent Zeta, and a member of the Sophomore class, was chosen by the band as its of- ficial Sweetheart early in the year and accompanied the band on all the trips thereafter.

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.
