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.

Mrs. A. R. Campbell or ganized the first group of Maroon Jackets in 1931, thereby giving Centenary the dictinc- tion of being the first college to have an organization of this kind. There now are many similar organiza- tions in nearly every college and high school in neighboring cities. The Maroon Jackets are selected on the basis of scholarship, character, and leadership. There are three rep- resentatives from each sorority and non-sorority group on the campus. The duties of the Maroon Jackets are many, assist at registration, usher in Chapel, march with the Band, and act as official hostesses at all college functions. MAROON JACKETS
