Founder ' s Day, May 2nd, is in- deed a day of celebration at Centenary College. Empty classrooms, forgotten textbooks, the deserted campus and the forlorn Student Center bear witness to this fact each year. Early in the morning, the entire student body, and as many pro- fessors as are able to stand the long hike, start out " en masse " for Betty Virginia park. There, everybody lets the proverbial hair down and turns loose all of their heretofore well-saved energy. Dr. Cline, surrounded by the taker sex, seems to enjoy himselt. OWl AmSUKiI fy04M UX A Alter lunch has been taken care ol, the big crowd gathers under the shade ol the trees lor a song lestival, led by Alvin C. " Cheezy " Voran, Student Counselor . . . But, to many, the big picnic lunch is the main event ol the entire cele- bration . . . One of the more im- portant stints ol the day is in the morning when such craity politici- ans as Helen Shaw, Bill Steger, and Joe Elston get on the stump to ballyhoo and bull the prospec- tive voters into submission . . . Part ol the group that braved an early morning march to Betty Vir- ginia Park.

In the annual Sponsor Contest the winner is decided by the amount of money turned in by each girl, and whoever presents the most cash for yearbook ads, signatures, annuals, and padded covers sold, re- ceives the award. Thus it is an honor not easily won and possession of it indicates plenty of hard work. This year, the winner received either an all-expense spring cruise to Havana, aboard one of the liners of the White fleet, or a trip to New York City. The runner-up was awarded an all-expense trip to New Orleans. The winner this year was Miss Azalie Webb. This 1941 race has been especially interesting to the or- ganizations because of the fact that the Zetas were out to win the trophy for the third time in a row, thus obtaining permanent possession of it, and ihey did. The runners-up were the Chi Omegas who were represented by Ann Thibodeaux. yoMC niH, Part of the group that arrived very early in the morning to meet the " Southern Belle " ...

One of the outstanding events of the day, aside from eating, is the political speeches and rallies for various prospective student body officers. Indeed, the professional politician might well learn some tricks of the trade from these amateur " stumpers. " Nothing is overlooked in their diligent search for an- ticipated votes. The other outstanding feature of the day is the faculty-senior baseball game. For comedy, drama, and thrills, even the best movie house could not outdo this contingent occurrence of things. To see your favorite " prof., " whom you had always figured as athletically dead as the mackerel, dashing around " a la Babe Ruth " is good enough for anybody ' s money. As we go to press, plans for a bigger and better Founder ' s Day Celebration are being completed by the Student Senate. To climax this day of all days, several events have been added this year which promise to be the highlights of that day. It so happens that a home baseball game between Cente- nary and Louisiana Tech has been scheduled for the afternoon of May 2nd. This will help greatly to climax the annual event but the new innovation that will really make a perfect ending is the Founder ' s Day Dance which has been planned by the Student Senate to take place that night. So, all in all, the 116th birthday party of Centenary College promises to be the best one on record. jbay Cete batiaH
