(Top) Marguerite Myers, soprano soloist with the choir. (Middle) ]. H. Woodall, baritone soloist with the choir. (Circle) A. C. Voran, better known to the students as " Cheezy, " took over the job of directing choral work last tall. When the finished product was publicly presented, it was generally agreed that this was the best choral group ever produced at Centenary. Breaking away from the stiffness usually associated with group singing, this or- ganization presented something different in their work. (Right) The mixed guartet of the choir: Carley Fox, baritone; Cleo Christiansen, alto; Marjorie Steph- enson, soprano; and George Brown, tenor.

The Centenary College Choir, newly-organized this year, made a name for itself not only in Shreveport but in surrounding Louisiana and Texas. Under the capable direction of Alvin O, " Cheezy, " Voran, the Choir gave concerts at Minden, Louisiana, Longview, Texas, and at the Women ' s Department Club in Shreveport, as well as appearing as a feature of Kollege Kapers at various towns in North Louisiana. Numerous appearances were made before local groups during the year. The formal opening concert given at the Women ' s Depart- ment Club was distinctive for its culture and artistry, attaining new heights in excellence and quality for Centenary ' s College Choir. The choir is a working group of friendly persons, and musicianship alone is not sufficient to complete satis- factory requirements for entrance into the organization. There must be a community of spirit and group unity. The admirable achievement which the Choir made along these lines is commendable. Instead of the con- ventional choir robe, the singers wore modern uniforms — the girls in black skirts and white blouses and the boys in tuxedos. The Choir took special pride in singing " Thy Song, ' Choir ' s director, " Cheezy " Voran. a number written by Nobel Cain and dedicated to the Plans for 1942-43 include a week of vacation-practice before school starts, perhaps at a private camp or at Caney Lake. The officers of the organization are Sam Papa., president; Harriett Crawford, treasurer; June Franks, secretary; and Henrietta Greene, librarian. THE COLLEGE CHOIR
