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.

PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL Officers President Carolyn Clay Vice-President Doris Finley Secretary-Treasurer Mary Smith New Betty Blaxton Myrtle Canon Carolyn Clay Eloise DeMoss Members Doris Finley Joan Gibbons Betty Ann Green Mary Smith New Carolyn Rigby Mary Earle Texada Katherine Turner Martha Yancey The Pan-Hellenic Council is the central governing organization among the sorority women at Centenary College. Its primary purpose is to regulate rushing and maintain a cooperative spirit in both the work and play of the three national sororities located on the campus. For the year 1944-45, Pan-Hellenic accomplished its goal in a greater degree than ever before. To begin the year, Pan-Hellenic allowed the Greeks to have open summer rushing featuring open houses at the chapter lodges as well as personal rush dates. The formal rush season was begun by the traditional Pan-Hellenic Tea, where rushees and members were able to get acquainted with each other and with the rules governing rushing activii- ties. The annual style show highlighted the affair at which time fall fashions for campus and evening wear were modeled by members from each Greek group. The Council found that at the close of the season their diligent work was rewarded by one of the largest and most successful pledgings in many years. Pledging day was a great event climaxing the well laid plans drawn up by the council, including nine informal parties at the sorority houses and one formal party for each group. Mid-term rushing, although on a much smaller scale, was also exciting. Each sorority entertained at one night party and ten girls were pledged which also was a record group for a mid-term season. The Pan-Hellenic Council enjoyed a most profitable year, and each member trusts that by such cooperation and friendship, another step has been taken toward greater friendliness and understanding among the Greek groups on the campus.
