alpha OFFICERS President Joe Stephens Vice-President Burl Sullivan Secretary Leroy Scott Treasurer Lawrence May Gather around boys; we ' ll sing a song of cheer. Kappa Alphas head lor the fraternity " house across the street. " Although somewhat handicapped by the loss of members to the armed forces, the Alpha Iota Chapter of Kappa Alpha came through its fifty-second year with banners flying. Under the efficient leadership of President Joe Stephens the chapter was able to maintain the high degree of achievement set by the Kappa Alphas at Centenary for a period of over half a century. " The boys across the street " had toward the end of the school year, contributed fourteen boys to the Service. To the Army went Burl Sullivan, John Haygood, and Albert Johnson; helping to keep the sea lanes open are Lawrence May, Wilton Guice, and Elmer Maddy; the chapter has two representatives in the " Leatherneck " corps — Robert Ent and Robert Walker; zooming " into the wild blue yonder " are James " Cotton " Robins " Centenary ' s Most Athletic Boy, " Norman Dillcrrd, and Joe Walters. Two of Alpha Iota ' s favorite sons, versatile Leroy Scott and capable David Barton journeyed last January to the University of North Carolina to become physics instructors. Last May Prexy Stephens, the " Centenary Gentleman, " and President-elect Roland Achee, " Most Versatile Boy, " were chosen president and treasurer of the Student Body. Thus began the impressive list of indi- vidual triumphs by Kappa Alphas. In the fall of 1942 Achee was named president of the Junior Class, while James Lee West was chosen to lead the frosh. The four class treasurers were Carroll Goyne, E. W. Harris, James Robins, and Zack Bennett. Stephens led Alpha Chi and served as Editor of the Conglomerate; Bob Eatman was vice-president of Alpha Sigma Pi; Roland Achee served as Master of Ceremonies for Kollege Kapers; Leroy Scott headed Alpha Sigma Chi, was vice-president of Sigma Pi Sigma, and treasurer of Alpha Chi. Leading the band was Drum Major Bob Pugh, who also served as Business Manager of the Conglomerate. In November of ' 42 the KA ' s once again successfully defended the inter-fraternity football championship held by Alpha Iota for nine suc- cessive years. The record of 1943 is one of which all Kappa Alphas are proud. Neither the drastic changes wrought by the Second World War nor the ever-increasing competition among social fraternities was able to dim the glory of the " boys across the street " at Centenary.

alpha President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Lee Owens . John Hardin Carroll Osbone Frank McAneny Members and pledges adorn the Lambda Chi doorstep. Pledgemaster McAneny takes advantage ot a brother. Lambda Chi Alpha was founded November 2, 1909, at Boston University. The fraternity now has a member- ship of 19,000, and a total of 1 10 active chapters. Another year of success has been added to the record of Lambda Chi Alpha at Centenary. Although the war has caused much loss in active membership, this has been a year in which Theta Rho Zeta has forged ahead. Under the capable leadership of President Lee Owens, the chapter has gained a good footing. Lee, who is a member of the Student Senate, Chairman of the Inter-fraternity Council, and a member of Who ' s Who, has had fine cooperation and assistance from the other members and officers. With our country at war many loyal Lambda Chis have joined some branch of the Service. Theta Rho Zeta misses Raymond Jolley of the Naval Air Corps, Russell Coleman, also of the Navy, Bill Swyers, Jimmy Bullock, Lt. Gaines Norton, Johnny Brocato, and Lt. Roy Montgomery of the Army. Many prominent Lambda Chis, who are now officers in the Army, have visited the chapter house this past year. All the members are justly proud of Brother Major General James Doolittle, chief of all air operations in the North African thea- ter of war, and commander of the first bombing of Tokyo. At the present, Carroll Osbone is a member of the Navy Reserve, and Lee Owens, Rupert Collins, Dick Norton, Raymon Owens, and Jimmy Cline are in the Army Reserve. In World War I, ninety percent of all Lambda Chi Alphas were in the service of their country. Special appreciation is given to Dr. William Phelps for his help and understanding as Alumnus Advisor. Theta Rho Zeta had a very successful rush week which greatly increased its membership. The social events of the year included a unique Valentine Dance, also various other outings to Cross Lake for boating and fish frys. Among their outstanding pledges is young Richard Norton, Jr., who at the age of four weeks is, they believe, the youngest pledge to wear a pin. He expects to be initiated about 1960.
