JACKETS Centenary ' s official hostesses — Our Maroon Jackets. Being a Maroon Jacket is not all work, for there are always several social functions given in their honor during the year. In the fall, the girls were entertained with a barbecue on Cross Lake by their honorary member, Mr. Ray Williams, and in February, Mrs. Campbell entertained with a luncheon.

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. "

Centenary College is justifiably proud of that group of boys and girls composing the College Choir. Under the capable direction of A. C. Voran, the choir has been most popular this year, filling many engagements in Shrev e- port as well as nearby cities. Alvin Voran, Director Ever in demand, the choir found itself very busy giving performances both locally and out-of-town. Included in its numerous local engagements were several appearances on the Chapel programs at the College. Highlighting these is the beautiful and impressive candle-lighting service which is held each year in commemoration of the Yuletide Season. This program is one of the most impressive of all those traditions which embody those things which typify Centenary at its best. Last year, the members of the Choir gathered at Camp Caney Lake the week preceding the opening of school for seven days of relaxation and work. Most any hour of the day the warb- lings of the Choir could be heard across the lake punctuated by the familiar voice of Director Voran giving instructions. All have agreed that the week spent eating, sleeping and working was so profitable that they plan to make it an annual affair. The members of the Choir would like to take this opportunity to thank " Cheesy " Voran for his loyalty and inspiring leader- ship which has made the group the organization it is today. This year was an eventful one for " Cheesy, " with the arrival of " Cheesy, Jr., " and his happiness and pride is shared by all the members of the Choir. Each and every one of the group is looking forward to greater things in the future under the expert guidance of their director. The CHOIR
