Officers President Louis Smith Vice-President Gordon Wilkinson Secretary Katy Oxford Sigma Pi Sigma, the national physics society, has chapters in many of the colleges and universities of recognized standing. It was founded as a local honor organization at Davidson College in 1921 by nine physics students and faculty members who sensed a need for an organization which would bring those persons particularly interested in this science into closer association for their mutual benefit. That local society proved so successful that a movement for nationalization was launched in 1925. Today the organization of Sigma Pi Sigma numbers 36 chapters and more than 2,000 members. Due to its expansion and achievement Sigma Pi Sigma was recognized by the American Society for Advance- ment of Science as one of its members in the Physics Division. Delta chapter at Centenary was the fourth national chapter founded, and continued successfully for several years, after which it became inactive. In 1941, under the spirited leadership of Dr. F. E. Lowance, then head of the Physics Department and an alumnus of the society, the chapter was re- organized. Sigma Pi Sigma receives into its membership those who attain its high standards of scholarship, pro- fessional merit and academic distinction. During the past year, Dr. C. D. Keen has joined the faculty and heads the Physics Department, having as his assistant Dr. Roscoe St inetorf. Under their capable guidance the prospects for an active and constructive year to come appear to be excellent. SIGMA PI SIGMA

ALPHA SIGMA CHI To be eligible for membership in Alpha Sigma Chi a student must show a genuine interest in chemistry, have a general C-plus average, and a C-plus average in at least one advanced chemistry course. Having complied with these requirements and having received the unanimous vote of the members, the aspirant may lcok forward to an initiation designed to test his physical and mental endurance. Upon successful completion of these tests, the neophyte is admitted into the fellowship of others who seek to delve further into the won- ders of chemistry and to enjoy the companionship of kindred minds. Several very nice meetings were held this year at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Entrikin. At one of the most interesting gatherings, several former members gave informative talks on their present work, which is generally related to the war effort. Only at the end of the war will be realized the enormous strides made in chemistry, the importance of which has greatly increased during the present crisis. This organization is proud to have so many former members working to make valuable contributions to their country ' s needs. After the former president, Bryant Harwell, was called into the service, Ike Muslow was elected to complete the remainder of the year as the executive officer. The Science News Letter, in which the sponsors of Alpha Sigma Chi, Drs. Entrikin and Thayer, are vitally interested, enables the club ' s activities to keep in contact with former members and what they are doing. It keeps the alumni informed of the work the club is still carrying on as it looks forward to bigger and better things for chemistry. Officers President . . . Ike Muslow Vice-Pres.

Its purpose has been the promotion of interest and development of science in the fields of medicine. All pro- grams and projects are planned with this goal in mind. In the spring of last year, Pi Mu Sigma had charge of a campaign on the campus to obtain blood donors for the plasma bank. This is only one example of the many interesting activities of an organization which was founded to help satisfy the desire to be more widely informed about current topics of medicine and to enjoy the fel lowship of others whose " first love " is medicine. The eligibility of a student for membership is determined by his evident and sincere desire to follow a career in the several fields of medicine. Also necessary is a high scholastic average and the unanimous approval of the members. Upon satisfying those requirements and after presentation of a fifteen hundred word paper on some phase of medicine, the candidate becomes a member. Pi Mu Sigma is honored to have on its roll many who are now serving as doctors in the armed forces. At one meeting this year a former mem- ber told of his experiences as a flight surgeon. Medicine has made great strides in this war and one aim of this organization is to keep up with new trends on various battle fronts. In return for their enlightening infor- mation about medicine in use, the club keeps the alumni informed of happenings at Centenary through the Science News Letter, a combined publication of the Science department. During these times when interest and stability are endangered, Pi Mu Sigma has more than ever appreciated the guidance of its loyal and de- voted sponsor, Dr. Mary Warters. It is to her that the members wish to dedicate this page in acknowledgement of their gratitude for her faith- fulness and to express their sincere admiration. Dr. Mary Warters P I M U SIGMA
