PRE-LAW CLUB Among the clubs of Centenary this year, a newcomer puts in its appearance. This organization, formed exclusively for the advancement of the pre-law students of Centenary, has twelve members at the present time. Under the capable direction of Dr. W. D. Overdyke, the Pre-Law Club seeks to acquaint law students with the foremost lawyers of Shreveport and with the great cases of the courts throughout the United States. The organization also offers an opportunity for association with students seeking a career in the same field. Founded on November 5, 1943, the club elected Browning Morris as president, Stuart Lunn as vice-president, and Glen Graves as secretary. To become a member of this fraternity a three-fourths vote of the club is re- quired as well as a sincere interest in the study of law on the part of the neophyte. In order to prove its intention of working towards a greater appreciation and understanding of law, the first act of the club was to provide a written constitution. This serves to keep order and train the members in the parliamentary procedure and penalty for carrying out business in places of formal enterprise. Special pro- grams and study sessions will be held for the further aid of the members in becoming better law students and, in the future, better lawyers and citizens of the community. Centenary is proud of this new club, which will doubtless prove itself beneficial to the members and to the college as a whole.

FRENCH CLUB Under the inspirational leadership of Dr. and Mrs. E. L. Ford, Centenary ' s French Club has added one more year of activities to its record. This year, too, it was gratifying to note that there was a large amount of in- terest shown by the freshman members of this modern language organization. The purpose of the French Club is to furnish opportunities for the students to increase their knowledge of French through conversation. This is accomplished in the meetings, held once a month at the homes of the members, which are conducted entirely " en francais " from the business portion through the entertainment until the last " bon soir " is heard. Some of the members enjoyed corresponding with French cadets stationed in the United States. One of the most interesting programs given this year was the movies shown by Dr. Ford of his trips abroad. In December the club enjoyed a dinner party at Cross Lake. Climaxing the year ' s activities was a lovely May picnic. Members of this modern language group are required to maintain a " C " average in French. Initiations are held whenever necessary at the meetings and provide a constant source of amusement for all. This year Charlotte Dupuy served as president, assisted by Helen Gillespie, vice-president, and Mary Emma White, secretary-treasurer.

Its purpose has been to bring to the student of commerce or economics some practical applications of the principles he is studying in the classroom. Leaders of business and industry in the Shreveport area have contributed much to the program of the organi- zation by giving of their time and facilities. Each year the program committee selects some particular phase of business activity in which the members are interested and devotes the several programs to a study of the selected business activities. This year ' s programs have been devoted to the oil industry, brokerage, and finance. Mr. John F. Adams of the Creole Petroleum Co. of Venezuela spoke on " Opportunities Offered by the Oil Industry in Latin Amer- ica. " Mr. Paul Clay of the Advertising Department of the Arkansas Natural Companies presented an in- teresting program on the oil industry which featured a sound film entitled " Oil in War. " Mr. Carney James, Manager of Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Beane, was host to the members of the club at a special meeting held in the company ' s brokerage office, where operations of the organization were demonstrated. During the year four former members of the club have passed three out of the four required sections of the examinations for the Certified Public Accountants Certificate given by the State Board of Examiners of the C.P.A. Society of Louisiana. These men, Robert Webster, ' 41, former president of the Club, Lewis Finnell, ' 41, Austin Robertson, ' 33, and Preston Petty will take the fourth section of the examination, Accounting Practice, in May.
