The bed must be tidy. Radio is important to ilyers. Class hours were long. Doubtless, few realize that Centenry College and Badgett Flying School started in the fall of 1939 to play a major roll in the training of pilots for the Army Air Forces. At this time under the Civilian Pilot Training Program flight training was being offered to anyone interested. Centenary acted as Ground Contractor and Badgett Flying School as Flight Contractor, with Claude Hamel as coordinator. Since that time approxi- mately 400 trainees have graduated from the four courses offered, Primary, Secondary, Cross Country, and Instructor. These boys have enlisted in the Army and Navy Air Forces and are now serving as Flight In- structors, Ferry Pilots, and Combat Pilots, and all are playing major roils on the several war fronts of the world. These trainees are housed and fed at Centenary College where they are also given their ground training. Actual flight instruction is received at the Badgett School. Their ground courses consist of mathematics, physics, Civil Air Regulations, Navigation, Radio Code, Military and Physical Training, Aircraft Identification, Military Science and Discipline, Meteorology and General Servicing of Aircraft, and a flight course of 35 to 40 hours. These young men are all anxious to do their part in helping to make the United Air Forces the finest in the world. Instructor explains a turn to trainee.

Dr. Enthken, Dr. Thayer and Chemistry Department graduates. English Department seniors and their instructors, Dr. Steger and Dean Campbell. The Commencement Exercises for the Centenary Class of 1942 were held on May 27 in the Open Air Theater. After the Processional and National An- them, Dr. F. M. Freeman spoke the invocation. Speaker for this event was Major General Campbell B. Hodges (R), President of Louisiana State Univer- sity, whose timely advice was especially appropri- ate since ninety-five per cent of the men from this class went into the Armed Forces soon after gradu- ation. Following the address, President Cline, assist- ed by Deans Campbell and Hardin, conferred the degrees and honors. William K. Graham, president of the class, led the Senior Pledge ceremony, and the audience rose as the Centenary Choir led in singing the Alma Mater. Senior Alumni luncheon attracts large crowd. William Graham receives diploma from Dr. Cline. These live Commerce Department grads are now in the service.
