COLLEGE CHOIR Singing in a mountain scene at the International Lions Convention in Atlantic City. The Lions Clubs conventions added a great deal to the Choir ' s traveling list, having sung for the fifth consecutive year, this time in Atlantic City. Conven- tion Hall, the world ' s largest auditorium was the site of proceedings and it was there that the choir had quite an experience singing in that vast building. Mr. Herb C. Petry, past president of Lions Interna- tional, gave the presidential award for the services of the choir. With the fading notes of this year ' s concerts the sing- ers are looking ahead to a new year, next year in the dispensing of good will as good music. The sum- mer ' s rest will be a welcomed one after the tours and keeping up grades to a B average. It is not every school that has an organization like the Centenary College Choir, and Centenary is proud to have such an organization in the " Shreveport Singing Ambas- sadors. " It is always chow time for the hard working truck crew. A familial scene to the singers: a Choir camp rehearsal. mm

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. Waiting ior the echo to return after " Behold the Star " number using an echo chorus. r

CENTENARY PLAYHOUSE With a lavish setting designed by Pat Brown, the excellent direction of Joseph Gifford and a talented cast, Maxwell Anderson ' s " Elizabeth The Queen " enjoyed a run at the Centenary Playhouse that was indeed royal. Slated for a limited three night run, performances were ex- tended to six nights due to the demands of Shreveport theatre-goers. More than eighteen hundred ticket-seekers were turned away, set- ting an all-time record for Shreveport theatri- cals. Continuing the policy of presenting only clas- sics, " Elizabeth " marks the high spot in the growth of the Playhouse which has become one of the top theatres in this area under the direc- tion of Joseph Gifford. Centenary Drama major, Mary Bozeman, es- sayed the title role of the sixty-four year old queen. Appearing as a guest of the Playhouse was Mr. George Blackwood, of the Broadway stage, as Lord Essex. Other principal characters were Ralph Lynch as Cecil, Robert Edmond as Raleigh, Pat Brewer as Penelope, and Jerry Bloomer as the Fool. Eighty-two
