CHI SIGMA NU This year marks the seventh anniversary of the founding of Chi Sigma Nu on the Centenary campus. The organization was started in 1937 by five future teachers who wished to further their educational aims. The pur- pose of this fraternity is to promote high standards of scholarship among students of education who con- template teaching as a profession and to foster an inter est in contemporary educational problems. To qualify for membership, one must be above sophomore standing, be interested in teaching and maintain a " B " average in college. The candidate for membership must also pass the unanimous vote of the chapter before a bid can be extended. As the number of members is limited, those wearing the gold key of Chi Sigma Nu are justly proud. , Monthly meetings are held in the homes of members, and speakers are outstanding educators of the city and state who usually discuss the classroom problems of the prospective teachers as well as the latest trends in education. The fraternity is ably supervised by Dr. A. J. Middlebrooks, assisted by the staff of the Cen- tenary Demonstration School.

First row: Crawford, Gray, Loveladdy, Ot- talini. Second row: Prindle, Wedgeworth, West. Pi Mu Sigma, founded in September, 1925, is one of the oldest honorary organizations on Centenary ' s campus. 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

E. White to elect new officers for the year. After electing Tiddle Bettis, president, June Franks, vice-president, and Marilyn Miller, secretary -treasurer, the members decided to hold meetings the second Wednesday of each month. At these gatherings, conducted in Spanish, there is also a program pertaining to Spain or Spanish-speaking countries. Before Christmas the members and sponsor of this romance language group had a fiesta supper which featured Mexican food. At midterm the surprise of the year came to the campus in the form of Isabel Guzman, a charming senorita from Mexico City. Miss Guzman is the first student to attend Centenary under arrangement with the Ameri- can Foundation School of Mexico, whereby a scholarship is given to an outstanding student of this school by Centenary each year. The scholarship is given in order to establish closer contact with Mexico and to bring the Centenary students first-hand information about Mexico. H. L. Cain, superintendent of the School, is a grad- uate of Centenary and it was through his cooperation that Miss Guzman was selected to represent Mexico. Each Friday afternoon the Spanish conversationalists gather to improve their accents with the aid of Miss Guzman. The Mexican senorita also has taught dances and songs of her native country to some of the students. These girls performed for the Pan-American assembly program which was given April 12, 1944, and climaxed another successful year for this group. SPANISH CLUB
