The local chapter of the Women ' s Athletic Association was inaugurated at Centenary under the sponsorship of Mrs. Bryant Davidson, physical education instructor, in 1924-25. This year opened with a very impressive candle-lighting ceremony and then the new members were treated to a swimming party and supper. Another social event later on in the year that was a huge success was the annual Christmas party, which was ended up by the members taking gifts to the Charity Hospital. Athletically, the W. A. A. started off the year with a badminton tournament which was followed by a ping pong tournament. The rest of the schedule was interrupted by the new intra-mural program that has been introduced. Now the W. A. A. has abandoned its usual program and works very hard to further this program. A sport, here- tofore neglected, was brought to the forefront this year. Bicycling became very popular with the girls, mostly due to tire shortage, and many hikes were sponsored by the organization. The two big events sponsored by the W. A. A. annually are the May Fete on May Day and Stunt Night on April Fool ' s Day. At the close of the year, the annual W. A. A. banquet is held and the presentation of the letters, awards, and blanket is the chief feature of the program.

For a fast game which requires plenty of skill, badminton is rec- ommended. Here a mixed doubles tries it out . . . Part of the celebra- tion that goes with the annual May Fete. This is the W. A. A. ' s main event each year . . . The girls supposed to represent the air corps wait their turn to perform for the big crowd that always turns out for May Day. (Above) Three of the feminine sportsters show the proper form for archery. This is a sport that requires a good eye and good strong arm muscles. (At right) These are two scenes from the annual May Fete spon- sored by the W. A. A. It is an affair that usually fills one whole side of the big athletic stadium with people from all around. The first picture is one of the May Queen of 1941 just after she has been crowned by her Maid of Honor. Girls from many different schools in this area take part in these ceremonies . . . This is a part of the panorama that is presented. It represents Queen Elizabeth and some of her courtiers pushing a foreign invader into the English Channel. And that ' s cold water, too.

1 8 g 8 s Centenary sent its students into the Spanish- American War with almost the speed of the Gatlin rapid-fire gun, appearing then on battle- fields, for the first time, as another revolution- ary step in the never-ending tragedy of conflict between nations. Every class in the college provided volunteers when the call came from their country, more than a score rushing to arms within a few days of the start of the war. Records are vague, but men of Centenary are known to have served in Cuba and in the Philippines, and to have been in the embarkation camps of Florida when the war ended. Many were members of the famous old Louisiana militia. In it they brought honor to their country, their state and their college. Once again the blood of Centenary flowed for this nation and once again a record of loyalty, devotion and service to college and nation was written in red. Feet which had nimbly trod the green campus climbed the somber stairs of hero- ism and death to join the men of 1846 and 1860, their eyes turned expectantly toward the curtain yet to be drawn back from 1917 and 1942.
