The MAROON Betty Blaxton Carolyn Clay The Maroon Jackets have just completed their fourteenth year on the Centenary campus, and through the .years have maintained a shining record of service and integrity. Founded in 1931 with the aid of Dean Campbell, the or- ganization limits its membership to twelve. Three girls are chosen from each sorority and the non-Greek group, Aufait, on the basis of scholarship, character, leadership, and appearance. Membership in the organization is a goal toward which every Centenary girl strives. These twelve girls, known as the official hostesses of the school, may be recognized instantly by their white uni- forms topped by the familiar maroon and white jackets. The duties of a Maroon Jacket are many. They serve as guides for bewildered freshmen on Registration Day, and on Fridays they may be seen acting as ushers at student assembly. They form an official body for all visitors to the college, and serve at every college function. Greeting new arrivals on the Campus. Donning the " Jacket. " Front oi the " Sub. "

The . . . CONGLOMERATE Staff Editor Carolyn Clay Associate Editor Marilyn Miller News Editor Mary K. Johnson Feature Editor Doreen Eachus Sports Editor Lonard Wells Society Editor Montez Russ Circulation Managers Dixie Ball and Rita Reynolds Business Manager Vance Mason Columnists — Harriet Schram, John McReynolds, Danny Lincove. Reporters — Katherine Turner, Barbara Purnell, Babs Lyon, Jean Hayes, Bonneau Peters, Fa ye Tinnin, Bill McCleary, Anna Dora Ruff. ■ JB| PJ !9IWn H ' x v9rM r Jk Manager Mason and Editor Clay plan the next edition. Breathlessly (at least that is the belief of the staff) the Centenary student body awaits the news and " gossip " published bi-monthly in the issues of the Conglomerate, the college newspaper. Under the able and consistent editorship of Carolyn Ciay, the copy beat the deadline — and the students are seen sighing around the campus in agony and relief. Staff meetings are called for every Monday, the attendance being extremely varied with a ratio of 40 to 3. Vance Mason, with his efficiency as business manager, kept the Conglomerate " out of the red " and on the press. To create more college spirit the Conglomerate sponsored polls conducted by Bonneau Peters, Jr., which resulted in such streamers as — " Donkey Brays As GOP Elephant Sobs " and " Dirt, Davidson, Der Bingle Win Poll. " Features appearing in the editions of the paper are " Sporting Highlights " written by sportsman Lonard Wells; " Casts and Forecasts, " the opinions of Danny Lincove; Harriet Schram ' s " One View " ; and such columns as " Conglomeration, " " Letters To the Editor, " and " Dorm Dames Dish Dirt " of which, for various and sundry rea- sons, the authors remain anonymous.
