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.

" V SENIOR PLAY, 1942 THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST " By Oscar Wilde CAST Butler Clint Teacle Algernon Ernest Carter Ernest George Edwards Gwendolyn Mable Boddie Miss Prism Bobbye Wilson Lady Bracknell Gladys Tippett Reverend Chausable Carl Tastum Maid Dorothy Luse Cecile Jessica Harris Produced and Directed by John Wray Young Technical Director Margaret Mary Young The Senior Play of 1942 was presented in the Centenary Open Aair Theatre, starring seniors Clint Teacle, Ernest Carter, Mable Boddie, and Bobbye Wilson. The theme was a play on words due to confusion of names and had an English setting. Jack, later revealed to be Ernest, loved Gwendolyn and proposed to marry her, but her mother, the severe Lady Bracknell, objected. She interrupted the proposal scene, much to the discomfort of Jack and to the amusement of the audience. Jack told Gwendolyn that he has a twin named Ernest, and discovered that she hated the name. His ward, Cecile, had fallen in love with the name, and wished to marry Ernest. When Algernon, Jack ' s friend, came to visit him, Cecile believed him to be the twin brother, and fell in love with him. Romantic humor was added when the Reverend Chausable fell in love with the elderly Miss Prism. Suddenly Miss Prism found it necessary to reveal that when Jack was a baby, she, his nurse, had kidnapped him and brought him up herself. She also revealed that he was the son of a noble family which had named him John Ernest. The family pleased Lady Bracknell and neither Gwendolyn nor Cecile minded the change in names. Thus the play ended happily.
