CHI OMEGA • •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• As Chi Omega celebrates its fiftieth anniversary in its 97 chapters throughout the country, Iota Gamma chapter proudly acclaims its record of achievement for the past year at Centenary. First concern next to studies of the girls was doing their part in the war effort. The girls spent many hours in Shreveport ' s hospitals as Nurses ' Aides, Red Cross Motor Corps, bandage rolling, entertainment at the U.S.O., and visiting wounded soldiers at Barksdale Field. The chapter started off by pledging sixteen girls who ' ve made a record of which to be proud. Betty Faye St. Clair and Wanda White were elected Vice-President and Secretary of the Freshman class, while Betty Lou Porter was chosen as Kappa Sigma Sweetheart. Five Chi Omegas, Betty Blaxton, Carolyn Clay, Carolyn Rigby, Eleanor Brown, and Elizabeth Ann Hudson were among those selected to appear in Who ' s Who. Among Student Senate members were six Chi O ' s, while chapter president, Betty Blaxton, was elected Co-ed Vice-President of the student body. In the sophomore class, Mary Katherine Johnson was elected Vice-President, Jane Riggs as Secretary. Of prominence in the journalistic field, Carolyn Clay, Editor of the Conglomerate, along with Marilyn Miller, one of Centenary ' s representatives on Mademoiselle ' s College Board, Assistant Editor of the Conglomerate, write collegiate columns for Shreveport ' s daily papers. Claire Tinnin served as Business Manager of the Yoncopin. Iota Gam gals proved versatile in all campus activities — Mildred Tippett was President of the Dramatics Club, Claire Tinnin, President of the Psychology Club; President of CenCoe, Mary Earle Texada; Carolyn Clay, Presi- dent of Pan-Hellenic; and Iris Connell headed the Dormitory Council. Iota Gamma is justly proud of the fact that they have maintained the highest scholastic average of any of the Greek organizations on the campus this year, a record which they have held for the past three years.

ALPHA XI DELTA i ' ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Leading the campus in pledging nineteen girls at the close of fall rushing, Beta Gamma Chapter of Al pha Xi Delta began the school term in true style. These girls began to follow in the footsteps of other Alpha Xi ' s and devote a great deal of time to the war effort. Afternoons and evenings found them rolling bandages, serving as Nurse ' s Aids, or entertaining the boys at the U. S. O., climaxing all their services by a bond-selling drive at Barksdale Field. The national organization of this sorority has purchased five Mobile Units for the Red Cross. These include a Blood Donor Ambulance, a Clubmobile for the African Campaign, a Utility Unit to transport men and messages in Hawaii, a Mobile Canteen for Ski Troops, and a Truck Ambulance to assist in disasters and in the Blood Donor Center at St. Paul. Aside from the war activities, the girls of Beta Gamma still continued to fill their place in campus activities. The chapter claimed two officers in the Junior class as Helen Weaver was elected president, while Kappa Sigma sweetheart, Eliose DeMoss served as treasurer. Helen was also a member of the Intramural Council, Student Sen- ate, Maroon Jackets, CenCoe, and vice-president of the sorority. The petite president of the girls of the golden quill was Doris Finley. This outstanding junior was a member of the Student Senate, president of the Maroon Jackets, vice-president of Pan-Hellenic, vice-president of Cenhomec, and a member of CenCoe. Treasurer Martha Yancey, a member of Who ' s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities, is outstanding in the field of music. These are only a few achievements of the girls from the " Little Brown House, " for this does not reflect the true friendship and sisterhood that can be seen at all times among the girls of Beta Gamma.
