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.

BETA GAMMA CHAPTER The Beta Gamma chapter of the Alpha Xi Delta sorority was founded at Centenary College, March 28, 1931, and since that time has continued to obtain her share of campus honors. One of the most outstanding events of the year was the election of Jean Gibson as president of the senior class — the first time a girl has ever held this position since the college ' s founding. Jean has proven her abilities in the past as president of the Dormitory Council and Pan-Hellenic Council. She has served two years as a member of the Student Senate, as secretary and vice-president of the Maroon Jackets, and is also a member of CenCoe and Chi Sigma Nu. Wielding a mighty gavel this year over the girls who wore the golden quill was sweet and demure Sydney Skinner. This outstanding senior is a member of Maroon Jackets, Pan-Hellenic, Student Senate, Chi Sigma Nu and is listed in " Who ' s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. " The prominent beauty of the Alpha Xi ' s is Martha Hart, who has appeared in the beauty section of the Yoncopin since her freshman year. Martha has brains as well as beauty and is also listed in the " Who ' s Who Among Students. " Treasurer of this sorority as well as of the senior class is Billye Love- laddy, a pre-medical student who also is vice-president of the Dormitory Council. Aside from their many college activities these girls found time to aid the Red Cross by rolling ban- dages, serving as nurses ' aides and working in the canteens. They also entertained the soldiers at the U. S. O. and served tea and cookies to the wounded af the Barksdale Hospital. Realizing the need of entertainment for the Aviation Students at Centenary, the " little Brown House " was opened nearly every Sunday afternoon for the cadets. Special entertainment was held for the boys at Thanksgiving and Christmas. In this way the girls hope, in some small way, to relieve the homesickness the boys so keenly feel. Climaxing their year ' s activities was the visit of Mrs. Harold Bates, National Vice-President of Alpha Xi Delta, who attended the annual Birthday Banquet at which the officers for the following year were installed. How lovely! — Why, it ' s exquisite!! Won ' t you come into my parlour?
