The Club is made up of women being trained professionally. This organization has as its purpose to further the best interest of Home Economics, to develop women with higher ideals of sane living, with a deeper appreciation of the sanctity of the American home, and women with broader social and higher intellectual and cultural attainments. Theme for this year ' s work was " Cues for You " with each program emphasis placed on intellectual, spiritual, ethical, and aesthetic poise. The work was so planned to give experiences that would develop genuine teamwork and promote friendship among its members, provide an opportunity for its members to carry responsibility and thereby help to develop good leadership and intelligent fellowship, to provide social, business, and professional experiences through the various aspects of social life, and to encourage the co- operation with other local clubs and with state and national groups. This year the club was represented at the annual fall meeting of Home Economics Clubs held at Natchi- toches, Louisiana, by four club delegates. On March 15, six members attended the spring club meeting held at Ruston, Louisiana. Margaret Hugon will represent the club at the national convention in Chicago, Illinois, to be held June 21-27.

The May Day Festival is celebrated by all members of Centenary College with representatives from colleges of the Ark-La-Tex area. On this occasion the May Queen is crowned and an elaborate and colorful pageant is presented for the queen and her court. The annual play day, which was started by Centenary in the year 1938-39, is held in the spring with one college inviting other Louisiana colleges to attend. To bring a joyful ending to the year ' s program, the W.A.A holds its annual banquet. At this time letters and awards are presented and plans made for the summer camping trip. To miss a trip to Camp Albert Pike in the Ouachita Mountains is a great loss, for it is the most eagerly awaited and longest remembered of all the many W.A.A. activities. This year the W.A.A. sponsored a Tennis Club which showed great progress during the year. Hessie Gas- ton was elected president with Marie King as vice-president and Beverly Herndon as secretary-treasurer. The tennis tournament was carried on with great enthusiasm. The basketball team makes a fancy pose . . . Ping pong takes the interest of some . . . Those interested in tennis take time out lor a picture ... A little foul- shooting practice.
