OMICRON DELTA KAPPA- Beta Pi circle of Omicron Delta Kappa was founded at Centenary on February 18, 1949, with ten stu- dents and five members of the faculty initiated as charter members. Nine new members were initiated at the same time to bring the total number to twenty-four. Before its installation as a circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, the local organization was known as the Laurel Society. The primary purpose of this group was to act as official hosts of the college. Members were expected to preserve the most worthwhile of campus traditions, to assist in freshman orientation and to promote cooperation among student groups. The primary purpose of this group was identical with the precepts of ODK, as it acted as a service group to the college. The Laurel Society had its be- ginning in January of 1948 when twenty-one outstanding young men were chosen by the faculty as charter members. The ultimate purpose behind this move was affiliation with some national service group that would gain prestige for the college and the men who became members. Membership in this society is the highest honor that a man may receive in college life. It is hoped that membership in ODK as an added incentive for recognition in leadership, scholarship and character will prove its worth as an inspiration to the men of the college. Officers of Omicron Delta Kappa are: Raymond Gibbs, President; Gaius Hardaway, vice-president; Robert Moody, secretary and Julian Hatcher, treasurer.

Barbara White and Quinton Raines, stars in " Our Town ' CENTENARY PLAYHOUSE The Centenary Playhouse culminated a well-reviewed season with the production of " The Valiant. " There were four presen- tations, each complementing the others in technique and appeal, while adding its own inimitable to a theatrical gamut. The productions were received enthusiastical- ly. " Life With Father, " a popular Broad- way play was the initial performance, set- ting a precedent for fast-moving, scintillat- ing dialogue. Then came Thornton Wilder ' s " Our Town " with its usual lack of realistic setting and props and its use of ladders in place of stairways. The next presentation was the bewitching comedy drama, " Claudia, " using an all student cast. The last produc- tion, " The Valiant, " combined the attri- butes of the first three. The performances of the guest stars deserve a special ac- knowledgment. A scene irom the production of " Lite With Father " Rehearsal shot oi " Claudia " Backstage preparations tor appearance are quite necessary
