BETA IOTA CHAPTER As the United States enters its third year at war, the girls of the blue and grey at Centenary continue doing their bit for their country. Regular afternoons are spent at bandage rolling for the Red Cross, and some of the girls are engaged in Nurses ' Aide work cr in serving the O.C.D. or U.S.O. in various ways. Not so much time has been spent on social functions as in former years. There have been several open houses given for the Army Air Corps Cadets stationed on both campuses, and a formal dance at Ihe Christmas season helped to boost morale. Along with these war activities, the Zetas continued to fill their place in campus activities. At the be- ginning of the year thirteen new pledges graced the roster, and at mid-semester five more were added. The neophytes soon had a share in campus honors when Helen Gillespie was elected vice-president cf the French Club and Intramural Representative. The chapter claimed two class officers in Virginia Graham, vice-president of the senior class, and Lu- cille Webb, secretary of the junior class. Prexy Camille Hendrick ably held the position of secretary cf the Student Body and Senate. Camille was quite a campus notable, being selected for " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities, " and as a member of Maroon Jackets and CenCoe. Other presidential offices held by the Zetas were Chi Sigma Nu, Norma Stewart, who was also secretary of the Maroon Jackets; CenCoe, Gene Hearn; and Dormitory Council, Eleanor Jenkins. Beta Iota is proud of Jean Elder, star dancer of Kollege Kapers, who was selected as " Miss Kollege Kapers. " Scholastically, the girls of the " white house on the hill " were well represented in honorary organiza- tion. Harriet Fowler, Helen Gillespie, June Hetherwick, and Katherine Turner were in Alpha Sigma Pi, and Martha Peyton served as co-ed vice-president of that organization. Secretary of Alpha Chi was Gene Hearn. In Chi Sigma Nu were Eleanor Jenkins and Dorothy Viosca. Pi Mu Sigma and Alpha Sigma Chi claimed a member in Loyce Crawford. Thus maintaining her place in war activities and in campus life, Zeta Tau Alpha is hoping for the peace that will return the well-rounded college life of former days. And a goodly crowd was there. Is that " Smitty " cr " Miriam of Irium " fame? I

IOTA GAMMA CHAPTER The largest national sorority on the Centenary College campus, Chi Omega, was founded on April 5, 1895, at the University of Arkansas. Today Chi Omega boasts more chapters, 96, than any other college sorority, more chapter-owned houses than any other group, and a national membership of 35,000. Iota Gamma chapter of Chi Omega began its sixteenth year on the Centenary campus by pledging twenty-one neophytes, topping the number pledged by the other groups. Talented Mary Hughes, a Tulsa belle, was president of the pledge group. Kollege Kapers tryouts were held and Crystal Walker, Jeannette , Reynolds, Mary Hughes, Puddin ' Hughes, Gloria Dierlam, Norman Robertson, Eva Nell Hampton, and Mary Ellen Petree were chosen to appear. I When class elections were held the girls of the X and the Horseshoe took both offices offered to women in the sophomore class, both offices in the freshman class, and one each in the junior and senior classes. Betty Blaxton, who will serve the sorority as president next year, held the most coveted office on the campus, co-ed vice-presidency of the student body. For the third consecutive year the Chi Omegas led the campus scholastically, having a chapter average of B. Chi Omegas were outstanding in publications work this year. Madeleine Pilgreen and Carolyn Clay, who write collegiate columns and news for the two daily newspapers, led the staff of the Conglomerate as editor and business manager. Madeleine also served as a member of the Mademoiselle magazine College Board. A large number of class offices were held by Chi Omegas this year. " Tiddle " Bettis was president of the Spanish Club with Marilyn Miller as vice-president. Norman Robertson held the presidency of the Art Club and was vice-president of Pan-Hellenic; Jeanne Maynard, vice-president of Chi Sigma Nu and secretary of CenCoe; Emile Ann Connell, secretary of the Art Club and treasurer of the Maroon Jackets; and Elizabeth Ann Hudson, president of Alpha Sigma Pi. Two Chi O ' s, Betty Blaxton and Carolyn Clay, both juniors, represented the college in the 1944 edition of ' Who ' s Who Among Students in Amer- ican Colleges and Universities. " Betty B. and Norman Robertson served as vice-president and secre- tary of the Intramural Council. War activities were not neglected. Motor corps, Nurses ' Aide, and Red Cross uniforms were noticed at meetings and the chapter ' s collection of war bonds grew during the year. Some o the gang at the Chi O. house.
