AUF AIT Beginning their sixth successful year on the campus with increased interest and renewed zeal, Aufait, the popular social group for non-sorority girls, has contributed greatly to campus activities. Under the able leadership of President Gloria Haygood, who is also treasurer of the Maroon Jackets, the members took an active part in college life. Doreen Eachus was a member of the Spanish Club, Dormitory Council, Fea- ture Editor of the Conglomerate, Secretary-Treasurer of the Ministerial Club, and a member of Alpha Sigma Pi; while Bobbie Roberts, treasurer of the group, served on the Dormitory Council, and reigned in the court of the Intra-fraternity Queen. Following the tradition of alternating their weekly meetings with business and social gatherings, great benefit has been gained by each girl. Hightlighting their pleasant social functions was a lovely luncheon and an impressive tea honoring the student nurses on the campus. Through work and fun, the girls have found this another year of success. Officers President Gloria Haygood Vice-Presideni Ruby Mae Richey Secretary Susan Dickey Treasurer ' . . .

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.

Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Sigma, oldest chapter on the campus — established in 1885 — started the year with three members in school and 100 in the armed services, out of a total of 106 initiated since November, 1939. A new- campus lodge, dubbed " Duration House " was opened early in September. This new lodge was the scene of an impressive ceremony at the close of the Fall " rush " period, when President David Freeman, members of the chap- ter and alumni, home on leave from the armed services, conducted pledge services for thirty-one men. This group, the largest number pledged by any fraternity on the campus, included such outstanding students as " Clack " Erickson and " Buddy " Kincade, president and treasurer, respectively, of the Freshman Class; Dan Monroe and Billy Martin, honor students; Teddy Broyles, outstanding debater; Dan Carroll and Robert Smith, football players; Carl Brown, Dick Carleton, and Bill Johnson, members of the College basketball team. Inter-Fraternity football claimed more attention than ever this year. The championship game, between Kappa Sigma and Kappa Alpha resulted in a to tie. The stone wall defense of the Kappa Sigs led by Dan Carroll, fullback and coach, was a feature of the game. A series of enjoyable social affairs, including a barbecue, Founders ' Day banquet, and the Sweethearts ' Dance brought the first semester activities to a close. Basketball, dances, and picnics featured the second semester. The basketball team composed of Albert Huffman, Stewart Burris, Dick Carleton, Don Brown, Carl Brown, Joe Smith, and Bill Johnson, won the Inter-Frat championship by defeating the Kappa Alpha ' s in three straight games. David Freeman, student manager of Kollege Kapers, and the Kappa Sig chorus contributed much to the success of the show this year. As the year draws to a close the chapter can point with pride to many outstanding accomplishments: In the field of athletics — won or tied for the two major championships. In number of pledges — a record number of outstanding men. In service to the college and future generations of students — the establishment of a student loan fund of several hundred dollars. In service to the chapter and the college — the substantial increase in the house fund, now invested in War Bonds. This fund is to be used to build a permanent chapter house when the war is won. Epsilon has truly upheld the 76 year record of Kappa Sigma and its 110 chapters in service to education and its members. • •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • KAPPA SIGMA
