Chosen by the C.A.A. as one of the nation ' s colleges to offer a course in aeronautics, Cente- nary has successfully passed its second year in this category. With the United States Gov- ernment asking for more and more aviators each day, a greatly increased interest in the course has kept the instructors busy every minute since school opened last fall. For those who desire to be the future pilots of the nation, rigid physical examinations must be passed before they can continue upon their anticipated careers. The Instructor shows Robert Lary how to do pylon eights. Steger, Dowling, and Mergers pose with one of the planes . . . Part of the group enrolled in the C.A.A. course After the physical requirements have been taken care of, difficult tests in ground work must be passed before any actual flying is at- tempted. Since this is the second year that Aviation has been offered at Centenary, a more advanced course has been offered for those who have completed the initial stage of the procedure, and, under the supervision of Instructor Claude Hammel, promises to produce some fair pilots. Glenn Wilson gets ready to take off.

Great strides were made this year in debate work at Centenary. The teams, composed of John Woods and Robert Webster, Fred Hughens and Joe Step- hens emerged victorious in many debates with col- leges from all over the South. Centenary also won its share of oratorical honors. Joe Stephens won first place in the Louisiana Peace Association Oratorical Contest with Helen Shaw winning second place in the women ' s division. John Woods placed third in a field of 27 contestants from ten states at the Louisiana speech tournament held at Louisiana State Normal College. Under the sponsorship of Professor Bryant Davidson, a Debate Club was formed with John Woods as its first president. The aim of this club is to focus at- tention of the student body on public speaking, bet- ter speaking and debating. The faculty committee composed of Professors David- son and Overdyke, Dr. Steger, Mrs. A. R. Campbell, and Dr. Morehead contributed greatly to the success of the teams, and the club.

The 1941 Baseball Squad. Qestti n Muz blamo-nd PROSPECTUS As we go to press Centenary ' s prospects for a very successful baseball season look very good. The 1940 season was the most successful one that Centenary has ever had and with a majority of the players return- ing this year, everything seems to be bright and rosy. Last year Centenary took baseball seriously for the first time and put it in the category of a major sport and then went on to win the Louisiana Inter-Collegiate baseball championship. Another major development in the diamond sport at Centenary is the new baseball field which has just been completed. It is situated next to the football grounds and promises to be an inducement for better attend- ance than the former practice of playing all home games at the Texas League Park.
