ERATE . . . 1941 Expressing the students ' opinions on campus affairs, the Conglomerate newshounds put pencil and pen to work in order to produce such outstanding papers as the blue-fronted Homecoming, the Merry Christ- mas Edition, and the April Fool Special. Reporters Bettis, Shaw, Boddie, and Harris turned in copy that were to become some of the biggest hits of the paper. Gossip columns appeared under the name of " Conglomeration " and " It Appears From Here, " their source a mystery, their composers ghost-writers. Favorite colmuns were " Forecast, " " Gentleman of the Week, " and " Conglomeration, " while the " Stu- dent Directory, " " Fashion, " " Hep Kat Sez, " and " News Briefs " became new Features. M. M. Waldroup, Gloria Brown, Sudie Baker, Henry Shuey, Florence Kendrick, Emilie Anne Connell, Azalie Webb, Ellen Eastham, Ann Thibodeaux, and Robert Webster were reporters on the Staff, assist- ing the Editor and his Associate Editors in production of the official student newspaper of our Cente- nary College, known to its readers as the Conglomerate. Reporters sneak a look on an advance proof. Here ' s a good one for the column

THE CENTENARY GE The Centenary band might be truthfully said to have been two separate organizations this year. One a military and marching band, led by Professor O. Lincoln Igou, during the fall; the other an excellent modern concert group organized and directed by Gideon Waldrop, during the spring. Although there were only three home foot- ball games, the band played for five during the season, traveling to Houston and Natchi- toches for the other two. The marching stunts were generally good, but not nearly as spec tacular as those of previous years. Charles Strickland for his second year as drum major led the band and Maroon Jackets in formations. Director Igou and many members of the band left for military service at mid-term, leaving Texan Waldrop to take over. Com- ing from a state where college bands are rated according their ability to " swing it, " Waldrop introduced modern music on the band programs, but not on the " Milenburg " plan of former years. Sophisticated Ellington and Gould arrangements were featured, as well as many other similar compositions. In addition to a chapel program in March, the concert band gave a series of Sunday afternoon concerts in the late spring, and ended the year with a new lease on life. The Drum Major and some band members escort the Homecoming Queen and her court . . . Ready to go out on the Held, the Band files out oi the stands . . . Then they wait on the gun to start their stunt.
