PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL The Pan-Hellenic Council has met with amazing success upon carrying out the Rushing Rules drafted in March, 1941. Due to the necessity of group and individual purchases of war bonds and the scarcity of adequate transportation, the council deemed it necessary to cancel Summer Rushing for the duration. Though this proved to be a definite hardship, the Council was justly proud of the fact that none of the rules were broken. Serving in its usual capacity of promoting good-will among the Greek-letter social groups, the Council met frequently during the summer and early fall in preparation for the Annual Pan-Hellenic Tea, held in September, at which the Rushees are introduced to sorority members. Featured this year was a style show, presenting fall fashions for campus and evening wear. Plans for next fall are already under way, and the Pan-Hellenic Council hopes to have as much success in succeeding years as it has enjoyed in 1943-44. Back row: Blaxton, Wosca, Hart, Dobson, Skinner, Stewart, Gibson, Clay. Front row: Ellwood, Hendrick, Texada, Robertson.

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?

Autrey, Lieber, Hagood, Padgett, Franks, Carlisle, Mayiield, Butler, Stephens. The fifth successful year of Aufait began with 1944. This club, composed of Centenary girls who are not affiliated with a Greek letter organization on the campus, meets once a week in the Student Union Building. Although its number of members is small, the girls of Aufait took pride in doing their part in collecting money for the March of Dimes in the local theaters this year. The non-sorority girls were well represented in the field of intramurals this year, at the moment adding a number of victories to their score. Aufait can hold its own when it comes to campus activities. President June Franks, a Spanish major, was president of the Maroon Jackets, vice-president of the Spanish Club, secretary of Chi Sigma Nu, a member of the Student Senate and a member of the college choir. Vice-president Betty Jane Autrey, majoring in commerce, was secretary-treasurer of the Commerce Club and a member of the Spanish Club. Secretary Harr iet Lieber, a major in French, is editor of the Yoncopin, member of the Student Senate, French Club, Spanish Club, Maroon Jackets, and was selected to represent Centenary in " Who ' s Who Among Stu- dents in American Colleges and Universities. " Elizabeth Houston held the responsible post of treasurer for Aufait and even though working on a history thesis and also in a local hospital found time to be a member of the Student Senate and the Maroon Jackets. This year new pins were ordered, after much debating since last year, but will not be delivered until in the fall. Sponsors for Aufait are Mrs. A. R. Campbell and Mrs. Bryant Davidson.
