Mi a u Qeti One of the most picturesque traditions at Centenary is the ceremony devoted to the crowning of the Queen of the May Fete on the first day of the month which ushers in the dreamy days of early sum- mer. Each year a faculty committee selects four girls — one from each social organization and one from the non-fraternity group — and from this number the students select their Queen. The coronation is held amid great ceremony and an elaborate pageant is presented for the entertainment of the Queen and her court. This May, Grace Ingersoll will reign and Lucy Bettis will serve as Maid of Honor to a court composed of junior and senior girls. The theme of the historical sequel to be given this May is based on the development of democracy in England and America, entitled, " Heritage of Democracy. " Presented annually by the W.A.A. as a climax to their athletic activity, the May Fete attempts to por- tray or interpret some major aspect of life in America through sports. Last year Beatrice Carlton reigned as Queen and her Maid of Honor was Grace Julian. The festival had as its theme, " Louisiana Under Five Flags. " The history of the state was depicted in colorful dances and tableaux, narrated by Helen Shaw. The crowning ot Centenary ' s 1940 May Queen, Miss Beatrice Carlton . . . The colorful May Pole Dance with picturesque Colonial Hall as a background . . . Some cl the characters oi the 1940 festival pose in their authentic costumes.

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
