Two new diummers receive private instruction. The drum corps sounds oii. This year the Maroon Jackets took on even more duties in accordance with their position as the official hostesses of Centenary College and proved to be as successful in their new undertaking as they have been in the past. Long recognized as a unit of the marching band, the Maroon Jackets drum corps kept its place at the head of the band and led that group through the many intricate formations required by flashlight drills at all the night games. In addition to their marching, the Jackets assisted the faculty by serving as guides at registration time, by greeting the various teams who opposed the Gents throughout the season, and by ushering at all college banquets, programs and at chapel exercises — a tedious and difficult job. For these duties the twelve girls, three from each campus group, received many privileges. They accom- panied the band on two specials, were featured as Centenary ' s outstanding girls, and received the intangible but coveted honor of wearing the Maroon Jacket of their college. Two special ceremonies marked this year ' s program. One was the presentation of Maroon Jacket keys to the graduating members and to Mrs. A. R. Campbell — their devoted sponsor, who conceived the idea which has been copied by other colleges all over the nation, and the other was their ninth anniversary as the first and most outstanding of similar groups.

THE CENHOMEC CLUB Officers President Secretary-Treasurer Billie Cady Lurline Yeary The Cenhomec Club was organized in 1939 under the sponsorship of Miss Mary Lou Ware, instructor of Home Economics. The club is for those interested in domestic science and the decoration, care, and man- agement of the home. Billie Cady, who served as the first president, was also the president for this year, 1939-1940. To be eligible for membership girls must not only show interest, but they must also have out- standing qualities and satisfactory grades. This year the club took a great step in its forward progress when it affiliated with the National Home Economics Clubs, and took its place among the honorary fraternities of Centenary College. The pro- gram of the year was on travel, and many distinguished persons spoke, and technicolor pictures of Europe were shown. The organization also took part in the state convention and sent a delegate to the annual Con- vention of Home Economics Clubs.
