A. C. Voran, beloved director oi the choii, comes down horn tht dressing room on opening night oi " Rhapsody in View. " One of the school ' s greatest advertising cards is the Centenary College choir, now in its tenth year of service to the school, community and state. Each of these ten years usually starts with the traditional choir camp on Lake Bistineau, at the lake estate of the Luther Beenes. Here for a full week both old and new members alike gather for the last relaxation per- iod before school starts and for some forty rehearsal hours. The camping time ' is largely responsible for the early presentation of " Rhapsody In View, " the first big show for local audiences. This usually is presented in early November, three or four months before any other choir, without something like choir camp, would attempt such a production. Featured on the 1951 edition of " Rhapsody " were Mrs. Celia Pate Ward, Mr. John Shenaut, and Mr. Ralph Squires who combined their talents on the closing number " Seraphic Song. " Tuning up, the choir displays one oi its sets ot dresses and suits.

CENTENARY Mrs. Ward and Mr. Squires are shown here with the choir. Here are the " Apple Eaters " in action One of the highlights in the Choir ' s singing experi- ences was in October when an invitation came to sing in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas for a giant Religious rally, the closing night of the Texas State Fair. This rally has been hearalded as one of the largest ever to take place in the South with some 45,000 people in attendance. Another engagement of similar nature was fulfilled in April when World Methodist Conference was held in San Francisco. This conference meets every four years and receives delegates from all over the world. There the choir was written into a play depicting the average American and his religion. Mr. Glen John- son of Dallas wrote the original music for the produc- tion and two of them have been recorded by the choir.
