C. PENNEY Co. Compliments of BAYOU STATE OIL CORPORATION Producers, Refiners, Marketers of Premium Lubricating Oils Here is a most unusual motor oil, produced under high vacuum in our own refinery from a crude " designed by nature " " for high quality lubri- cating oils. This oil is 100% DIS- TILLED from a select Mid-Continent ( Napthene-Paraffin) Crude, first into a pure vapor, then condensed into a line clean oil, free from all non-lubricating impurities. Cute — eh? SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS (cont ' d) Meanwhile, smooth-talking, handsome Norton had pledged Kappa Sigma, and had been named president of the pledge group. One day, without so much as a word, Norton and some half-a-dozen followers marched out of Kappa Sigma, much to the amazement of the campus, who had marked him as one of the leaders of tomor row. Quite naturally, McClanahan and Norton joined forces, organized the first local fraternity on the campus in several years, and called it Alpha Sigma Upsilon, for some obscure reason. So quietly and quickly was this done, that napping national frater- nity officers on the campus were unaware of its exist- ence for almost a week. cont ' d

SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS (cont ' d) From that moment on, catastrophe followed catastro- phe. First, Aufait started rushing (and don ' t you think for a minute they didn ' t) the girls who failed to pledge a sorority and walked off with a fair number of girls, who contrary to the previous reputation of the group, had looks, money, and a ready line. By far the most interesting story of the year concerns one Fred McClanahan and his advisor, Richard Nor- ton. No Greek, McClanahan early in the year organ- ized a somewhat diverse group of disgruntled anti- Greeks called " The Gentry. " No anti-Greek, he failed to gain the confidence of the group, which ousted him some two months later. cont ' d MORRIS-DICKSON DRUG STORES SHREVEPORT ' S DRUGGIST Since 1841 Institutions Building a Greater South Centenary College and Commercial National Bank

President J SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS (cont ' d) Instantly on the alert, these Phi Delt-SAE-DEKE-baiting men rushed around madly for two whole days, making it plainly known that the presence of a fourth large national fraternity on the campus was not to be tolerated by them. Before a week had gone by, their fears were allayed. From Dallas came word that the group which had scared the daylights out of K.A. and Kappa Sigma, would in February be initiated en masse into the local chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha, which had been dying a natural death for two years. With the promise of fresh blood, LCA again took its rightful position in campus affairs, and Greek met Greek in the joints, friendly again. January brought still a third fright to the Greeks, this one a major riot. From the office was issued an ominous docu ment, purporting to be the regulations for social functions. Up in arms went the Greeks, but with less success than the ones fight- ing in Greece. Tongue-in-cheek, with a nous verrons attitude, they submitted amendments they desired. Flatly rejected in all save one instance, they came back. Impetuous ones talked darkly of revolution, succeeded in dancing in the SUB one cold Friday morning, despite warnings of expulsion. Back to classes went the Greeks, but January has not been forgotten. A major riot is still in the offing.
