STUDENT SENATE From the end of the picnic last May 2nd after all the candidates and their managers had promised everything from optional classes to ice cream with every registration, until September, things were quietly seething in the realm of student government. For the newly- elected officers had some hot ideas they were anxious to try out, and they made it known that they thought themselves a little dif- ferent from student officers of previous years. They had promised action, and action they proposed to give. So when September came around, the first Conglomerate screamed, " Sweeping Student Senate Changes Proposed, " and the lid was off. Keynote in the new program was a more representative scheme of membership; this they proposed to do by allotting the membership by campus oganizations. By October, the plan had been adopted by the student body, and the senate met, full of vigor and enthusi- asm. But the thing that the new officers had not foreseen was the lack of power that was theirs. Everything they tried to do met with opposition either financially or administratively or internally. So, hampered with an ever-changing membership, and lack of some- thing to do, the Student Senate found itself in the same position that its predecessors had been — in the lurch. But we found that we hadn ' t reckoned with " Wild Bill " Steger, " Rounder " Hearne, " Gertrude " Maynard, and the other big-wigs, when we thought the Senate was licked. Among its accomplish- ments (?) of the year were the Frosh-Soph tug-of-war, discussion of the honor system, and the annual Founder ' s Day picnic. So the Senate asserted itself this year, for the first time, and at least laid the groundwork for some fine future student government in years to come.

Compliments MAGNOLIA PACKING CO. 90 Market Street KOLLEGE KAPERS Doctor S. D. Morehead is a very unusual man. His talents run from the deepest mazes of economic thought to the picking of fe- male singers for Kollege Kapers who make the men sigh. This year was no exception and its crop of full-busted chanteuses out- shone all previous seven years of Kapers history. No financial fool, Dr. Morehead makes the show pay its own -way, too. Aside from the many individual shows at neighboring cities, towns, and hamlets, Kapers splurged this year and had two tours — the regular North Louisiana tour, and an additional East Texas tour. It was just one big blaze of glory, for men, ' women, and chil- dren, alike, giggled at the play, roared at Flournoy and Achee, started their adrenalin running when Peg Fendley and Betty Brewer sang, swayed with dancer Rosemary Neal, babied Biddie Boddie, and sat in profound awe at the swell singing of the Singsomble and the rich notes of Billy Bradford and Cheesy Voran. The 1941 show was a swell show, It packed them in, fed their en- tertainment taste buds well, and turned them away until next year, when another show will be there to show up the 1941 version. Of particular note is singer Betty Brewer, whose luscious larynx poured forth the kind of singing that made gibbering maniacs of strong men, and left women half-admiring, half-jealous. Only a sophomore, Bet ' s future seems to be rosiest of all the ' 41 krew, and proved again that " Doc sure can pick ' em. " Doorway to the Unusual . . .

THE CITY-ON-THE-BAYOU For the second consecutive year, the official student body football trip led Centenary students to Houston, where the Gentlemen, it was rumored, played Rice. Surprisingly enough, the 1940 trip was a very quiet one. The train trip both down and returning looked more like a tired house party than a football trip. Aside from an occasional pair of loaded dice, and a funny smelling coke bottle or two, all actions were above suspicion. It seems, rather, that all the fun was had in the city itself. Those South Main street joints came in for their share of the sucker-money, and the tenth floor of the Texas State Hotel saw some scenes that would make a Kappa Sigma blush. The elevator operators are reported to have held a convention on that floor, with mouths wide open, and eyes popping. As usual, Centenary Gentlemen had trouble •with Aggies down for the week-end, who insisted on taking over the girls they had been led by some strange reason to believe had come down to see them in the first place. But, as is customary, the trip went down in history as a very un- eventful episode in the lives of the three hundred who dared make it.
