THE 1941 YONCOPIN is BOUND IN A KINGSCRAFT COVER MANUFACTURED BY THE KINGSCRAFT PRESS, Inc. KINGSCRAFT, TENNESSEE LOUISIANA ' S OLDEST BANK Extends Best Wishes to 117-year-old CENTENARY COLLEGE (Oldest College West of the Mississippi River) FIRST NATIONAL BANK SHREVEPORT ' Big Shots " HOMECOMING QUEEN One of the most interesting elections at Centenary is always the one for Homecoming Queen. In this, the first " big " election of the year, the drawing power of the various sororities is accu- rately measured for future months. Sometimes, in past years, the results have been a complete surprise to the general public. This year, the wise guys on the campus were asking each other, " Who will the Zetas run? " For so many consecutive years that they have lost track of the actual number, the Zetas ' pride and joy has been their unbroken line of Homecoming Queens. In 1940, the man-on-the-campus felt sorry for the ZETA ' s, because he saw no candidate outstanding. Bui the surprise outcome of the year named Prexy Dorothy Robinson of that organization as the 1940 Homecoming Queen over three close rivals who threatened to go on top at any minute. No dreamer, Queen Dottie at once realized that her success was due as much to the loyalty her organization commands among the ambitious swains in the land as to her personal magnetism. Quiet, demure, of necessity studious, she won the hearts of those who had never known her before with her regal bearing and appearance on that black Homcoming Day, and capped with a glorious crown her meteoric rise to prominence in campus affairs, -which began almost a year before, when she was elected president of Zeta.

CLASS ELECTIONS Class elections at Centenary are usually boring. All the available members of the class manage to meet and elect the persons nomi- nated by the cligue -which controls the majority of votes at that time. 1940 elections proved to be no exception to this rule. When all the dust had cleared away, the three upper classes had elected three K.A. ' s, one Kappa Sig, one non-fraternity man, two Chi Omegas, and five Zetas. Notably griped were the power-loving, but seldom powerful Alpha Xi ' s, and, totally lacking in representa- tion, the slowly dying Lambdas. Just before Christmas, the freshman class elections were ordered to be held by secret ballot instead of class meeting. The results some- what atoned for the prominence of Zetas in the other three classes, when three Chi O ' s and a lone K.A. were elected to fill the post. Notably griped were the Kappa Sigmas, who had put on a rooting- tooting campaign, with sound-trucks, posters, high-pressure men, and other professional apparatus. In mid-February, all was just about forgiven, and people were again asking each other just who were the class officers. Drink eca TRADE M40,, MG.u.s.p«r.o f ,T In Bottles
