Q 9 ' 7 Centenary College was ready when World War I engulfed the United States, for full military training was in effect at Centenary even in 1916 when the Mexican bandit leader, Pancho Villa, threatened our Southwestern border. When this nation turned its strength against the imperialism, aggression and selfish destruction of the Kaiser twenty-five years ago, just as it now again has joined the world battle to pre- serve civilization itself, students and alumni of Centenary quickly responded to the national demand for manpower. Into training camps and directly into organized military forces went the college manpower. In the lines at home, in the trenches overseas, behind the first tanks of modern warfare on the Western Front, men of Centenary served their nation and preserved the traditions of heroic sacrifice, daring gallantry and unflinching cour- age which always have characterized those leaving its halls to face the battles of either life or death. As in the wars before, World War I found the Maroon of Centenary again marching beside the Stars and Stripes — ever onward to victory.

THE 1942 YONCOPIN SPONSOR The Chi Omega ' s check over their prospects To be named Sponsor of the Yoncopin is an honor not easily won and the possession of it indicates plenty of hard work. Each year since 1932 the Yoncopin staff has put on this contest to decide who shall be its official spon- sor. The winner is decided by the amount of money turned in by each girl, and whoever presents the most cash for yearbook ads, signatures, annuals, and padded covers sold, receives the award. Besides the honor of being the sponsor of the annual, the girl is also made happy financially. This year, in keeping with the times, the winner was awarded a seventy-five dollar Victory Bond. The second-placer received fifteen dollars in Victory Stamps. When all of the votes had been counted on April 15th, Patricia Harper of the Alpha Xi Delta sorority was an- nounced as the winner. Azalie Webb of Zeta Tau Alpha, and last year ' s winner, claimed second place. The Alpha Xi Delta ' s received a beautiful plaque for they were the sorority that the sponsor represented. If the sorority re- peats their performance for three successive years, then the plaque is permanently their own property. Azalie Webb, last year ' s sponsor and second-place winner this year ... Ann Thibodeaux and Carolyn Clay read over the rules of the contest.
