Highlights of the activities of the year include the reorganization of the drum corps of the Maroon Jackets to march with the college band. Early in the morning the girls could be seen marching with the band and in April they participated in a city-wide parade spon- sored by the Chamber of Commerce. Yet all is not work, for there have been several social functions during the year. A supper was given in the fall honoring Mrs. Camp- bell, Maroon Jacket Sponsor, and Mr. Ray Williams, honorary member. By their spirit of co-operation and fidelity, the Maroon Jackets have gained the respect and appre- ciation of all who are a part of Centenary College. Time for relaxation — the Maroon Jacket chorus line.

Centenary ' s Official Hostesses — The Maroon Jackets. MAROON Again this year the Maroon Jackets have been a busy and efficient organization. These twelve girls are recognized as the official hostesses of the school and have completed their sixteenth year of service to the college and community. Since its founding in 1931 membership in this organization has been a goal toward which every Centenary girl strives. Three girls from each sorority and the non-Greek group — Aufait — are se- lected for their qualities of leadership, scholarship, and character. The Greater Centenary College Pro- gram has offered many opportunities for service. One could always glimpse the familiar white uniform topped with the neat maroon and white jacket at the college building at the state fair, at the luncheons, banquets, and meetings that were a part of the impressive inauguration of the president, at chapel hour each week and at registration in the fall and spring. Theirs is a record of service to be commended and praised by students and faculty. Together they stand in a " C " for Centenary.

THE CHOIR " De dication, " the theme song of the Centenary College Choir, has become well known in Shreveport and a large surrounding area. With A. C. " Cheesy " Voran as director, the choir has played a leading role in the college curriculum. Centenary is justly proud of this group of students who by their music have taken those standards of the college to cities throughout the state. Even before school began in the fall, the choir of 1946-47 began its career. For a week the members of the choir were found at Lake Bistineau basking in the September sun and sending forth melodies on the September breeze. Choir camp has become an annual affair, for it affords the singers ' the opportunity to learn the year ' s music and to relax before school begins. All have agreed that the week spent eating, sleeping and singing was both beneficial and profitable. In October the choir traveled for a week throughout the state singing at the Methodist Rallies. For seven days, the choir would crowd into a bus, perform, and travel until late at night, returning home many a morning after a sleepless night just in time to eat and attend classes. Professors were tolerant at these times and understandably so. An enviable honor was bestowed on the group when they were asked to participate in the inauguration of President Mickle. This and numerous performances in the college chapel and on Centenary ' s own radio program were rendered with excellence and skill. Under the direction of A. C. Voran the choir has become a successful and congenial group of students. The college owes the Centenary Choir a vote of appreciation and thanks.
