iota gamma Pledges perch on the famous Chi O Bridge. :jft » : " ». i. Chi O Cuties enjoy the sun. cm omega As Centenary goes all out for the war effo rt, the Chi Omegas are doing every bit they can to further it. The achievement of which the girls of the X and the Horseshoe are proudest is the purchase of a station wagon for the Red Cross. They have rolled bandages, entertained the boys of Uncle Sam ' s Army at the U.S.O., and served the O.C.D. as air-raid wardens, fire-watchers, and messeng- ers. Last fall fourteen pledges brightened the roster, and with the arrival of mid- term rushing, three more girls went the Chi O way. These pledges wasted no time in setting the pace for the other neophytes of the college, for Henri Horton was elected Kappa Sigma sweetheart, Elizabeth Ann Hudson became vice- president of the Freshman Class, and in January, Jane Pratt was elected Band Sweetheart. Again this year the honor of top campus beauty went to Chi Omega with Presi- dent Ann Thibodeaux adding " Miss Centenary of 1943 " to her many and im- posing titles. Out of nine girls selected for Who ' s Who, Ann Thibodeaux, Gladys Tippetl:, Jimmye Brown, Betty Gordon Smith, and Charlotte Newsome were the X and Horseshoe, making an enviable record. Scholastically the girls maintained their high average, having Jimmye Brown, Susie Mulkey, Charlotte Newsome, and Betty Gordon Smith in Alpha Chi, and Eleanor Brown, Elizabeth Hudson, and Carolyn Rigby in Alpha Sigma Pi. Chi Omega contributed many honorary and departmental group presidents, such as Betty Gordon Smith, Maroon Jackets; Jeanne Maynard, Chi Sigma Nu; Jimmye Brown, Span- ish Club; Adelaide Dickson, Cenhomec; Gladys Tippett, Intramural Council; and others. Five Chi O ' s were members of the Student Senate, two of this group being executive officers. The office of vice-president of all four classes was held by Chi Omegas, and the girls literally walked away with the Popularity Contest, with Ann Thibo- deaux, Centen ary Lady, Jimmye Brown, Most Versatile Girl, also holding office as Secretary of the Senior Class and Student Body, Susie Mulkey, Most Popu- lar Girl, as well as Chi O Pledge Mother and " Miss Kollege Kapers, " and Gladys Tippett, Chi Omega Vice-President, Most Athletic Girl. These are but a few of the achievements of the girls of Iota Gamma, but right now they are more concerned with winning the war, so for the duration they will forget the social side and do their part for America.

iota chapter The Zetas began the year as the oldest sorority on the campus with the pledg- ing of nineteen girls. Later, two more were added to this group as a result of mid-term rushing. Taking active part in Centenary ' s Intramural Sports program were class man- agers Mary F. Peyton, Mary S. New, and Lucille Webb. Lucille also served as secretary of the Sophomore Class while Camille Hendrick was elected secre- tary of the Junior Class. Other honors went to Dorothy Viosca and Martha Stevens, who were selected as beauties, and to Tilly Broussard, who became " Miss Scrapheap " as a result of Centenary ' s scrap collection drive. Other outstanding Zetas this year were Azalie Webb and Mary Foster Peyton. Beside serving as treasurer for the sorority, Azalie was a member of Who ' s Who, CenCoe, Maroon Jackets, Pan-Hellenic Council, Conglomerate Circula- tion Manager, and Intramural Council. Secretary Mary Foster is treasurer of Maroon Jackets, secretary-treasurer of CenCoe, member of Student Senate, Pan- Hellenic, and Chi Sigma Nu. Beta Iota ' s prexy for the year, Gerry Baird was a member of Who ' s Who, Pan-Hellenic Vice-President, Maroon Jacket member, a CenCoe, and a member of the Student Senate. The Zetas were well represented in honorary organizations and clubs on the campus, having members in both honorary scholastic organizations and in most clubs open to the girls. Beside campus organizations, the Zetas were active in work with the Red Cross, Little Theater, U.S.O., and other organizations of the city. Many roll bandages for the Red Cross and serve that organization as junior hostesses at the U.S.O. Continuing to fill their place on the campus, the Zeta Tau Alpha girls are doing their bit for their country. zeta tau alpha
