Members Alvin Gardsbane Powell Joyner Patricia McNicol Katy Oxford Ned Prothro Louis Smith Sarah Jane Stephens Sigma Pi Sigma, the national physics society on Centenary Campus, has chapters in many of the colleges and universities of recognized standing. It was founded as a local honor organization at Davidson College in 1921 by nine physics students and faculty members who felt the e was a definite need for an organization which would bring those persons particularly interested in this science into closer association for mutual benefit. In a short time that local society proved so successful that a movement to establish chapters in the leading colleges was launched in 1925. Today the organization of Sigma Pi Sigma numbers thirty-six chapters and more than 2,000 members. Because of its rapid expansion and outstanding achievements, Sigma Pi Sigma was recognized by the American Society for Advancement of Science as one of its members in the Physics Division. Delta chapter at Centenary was the fourth chapter to be founded when the movement first began to gain momentum nationally. In 1941, under the spirited leadership of Dr. F. E. Lowance, then the head of the Physics Department and an alumnus of the society, the chapter was reorganized after a brief period of inactivity. SIGMA PI SIGMA Officers President . . Katy Oxford Vice-President, Powell Joyner Sec ' y-Treas., Alvin Gardsbane Sigma Pi Sigma receives into its membership those who attain its high stan- dards of scholarship, professional merit, and a manifested interest in physics. The society tends to promote interest in research and the advanced study of physics. One of its chief aims is to popularize interest in physics in the general collegiate public by having many of its meetings open to the public. Sigma Pi Sigma has done much to popularize interest in this most intriguing of all sciences,- and has just completed an active and constructive year.

That those freshmen and sophomore students who main- tain such a commendable record should not go unrewarded, Alpha Sigma Pi was founded in 1932 by its present sponsor, Mrs. A. R. Camp- bell. This year, thirteen freshmen met the requisite of thirty-seven points scholastic average set by Alpha Sigma Pi. Though all social activities were discontinued for the duration of the war, once more the fraternity joined with the other honorary organizations on the campus in the presentation of its members at the Honor Chapel. The object of Alpha Sigma Pi is the stimulation and recognition of scholarship, leadership, and character. Membership in Alpha Sigma Pi is a goal for which every freshman strives and thereby learns to appreciate the merits of scholarship and wisdom.

Alpha Sigma Chi, honorary chemistry frater- nity, under the able guidance of Dr. Entrikin and Dr. Thayer, has stimulated much student interest in chemistry this year. To be eligible for membership in the fraternity, a student must possess a " C " plus average as well as a " C " plus average in at least one of the advanced chemistry courses, and share a genuine interest in chemistry. Upon meeting such requirements and with the unanimous approval of the organi- zation, the future member must prove himself worthy at a somewhat unique initiation de- signed to test his physical and mental en- durance. By the circulation of the Science News Teller, written and published by the science profes- sors, all former members are informed of the activities of the Club. It is the desire of the or- ganization to make a definite contribution to the great roll chemistry is now playing in our everyday life.
