PI M U SIGMA Officers President Ray Goens Vice-President Jarvis Waller Secretary -Treasurer Leonard Hattaway Organized seventeen years ago, on the Centenary Campus, Pi Mu Sigma, honorary pre-medical fraternity, de- votes its efforts and time solely to science. The meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month and are made up of forums for the discussion of current problems in the medical world. At these meetings, doctors or Centenary graduates address the group and answer questions of scientific interest. Mem- bership is limited to those pre-med students who have a " B " average in Zoological courses — the unanimous vote of the organization being another prerequisite. Each new initiate is required to present a 1,500-word thesis on some phase of medicine cf current interest to the group. The new member also undergoes a solemn ritual as part of his acceptance into the fraternity. With Miss Klett and Dr. Thayer as co-sponsors and Ray W. Goens as president, the group continues to devote its entire effort to the acquisition of medical knowledge, the removal of false ideas and beliefs, and the further- ance of the ideals upon which the fraternity was founded.

SIGMA PI SIGMA Officers President David Barton Vice-President , Quitman Williams Secretary J. Knox Smith Treasurer Leroy Scott Sigma Pi Sigma, the only national Physics society having chapters in colleges and universities of recognized standing, was founded as a local honor organization at Davidson College in 1921 by nine physics students and faculty members. They sensed a need for an organization which would bring those particularly interest- ed in this science into closer association for their mutual benefit. The local society was so successful that a movement for a nationalization was launched in 1925. The society now numbers thirty-six chapters. Delta chapter at Centenary was the fourth chapter founded when the movement gained momentum nation- ally. It continued successfully for awhile and then dropped from the picture. In 1941, under the guidance of Dr. F. E. Lowance, Head of the Department of Physics and an alumnus of the fraternity, the local chapter was reorganized. The group is made up of physics students, Dr. Lowance and one honorary member, Dean John A. Hardin. It meets twice every month and many of its meetings are open to the public. Here a well-spent evening may be had listening to the various prominent speakers. Every year the organization gives an award to the most prominent freshman in physics. Also, this year, the chapter had as a project the construction of a model radio-controlled airplane but government priorities soon shattered their efforts. Forgetting for a day how many wave-lengths a low B flat on the trombone makes, the entire organization takes off in the spring of the year for their annual picnic and enjoy the frivolities of the layman.

Alpha Sigma Chi, honorary Chemistry fraternity, under the able guidance of Dr. Entrikin and Dr. Thayer, has stimulated much student interest in chemistry this year. Because of the great role that chemistry is playing in the present defense program several very enlightening talks on subjects related to chemistry in war were given by workers in various fields of national defense. Open meetings, a new feature of the organization this year, have attracted a surprising number of interested underclassmen who will endeavor to join th ranks of Alpha Sigma Chi next year. Of course, in addition to the scholastic requirements, it is distinctly to a freshman ' s advantage to cultivate a taste for strong coffee, odiferous pipes, and a willingness to participate in long bull-sessions. Members of Alpha Sigma Chi who are eligible to affiliate with the American Chemical Society usually attend the semi-annual meeting of this national organization in order to gain more knowledge of the chemical pro- fession.
