Those who work quietly behind the
scenes that school work may go on
smoothly are pictured on this page.
Prin. E. A. Funk, shown upper left,
is well known to all students in high
school. In his government of the
school' he learns to know well both
leaders and the tardy and truant.
Supt. C. E. St. John, upper right,
is seen often coming and going from
his office in the high school build-
ing. The eiicency of the school is a
silent tribute to his work.
The school board, caught in various
poses are pictured center. In the first
panel, left to right, are Dr. L. E.
Brenz, president, Dr. R. Claude Young'
and Dr. R. L. Ferguson. In the sec-
ond panel are Dr. L. M. Beatson, Dean
Trueblood, and C. G. Holmsten.
The bottom panel is a picture of the
student council Whose major accom-
plishment for the year was putting
the Junior Patrol to work. These
same students planned the queen
ceremony for the Thanksgiving foot-
ball game. Chosen from Various con-
fei-ence's they compose the most truly
representative organization in high
AC AT WCDIQK
What have we here? It looks like some of
the Honor Society members, but what are
those little girls doing on the back row with
one lone boy? And look at that boy on the
front row with his clothes on backwards!
The five on the middle row look very 'grown
up and proud, don't they? Yes. they are
Honor Society members and this picture
was snapped during the fall induction party
for the new members, who were required to
dress up in some fashion or other.
These boys don't seem as industrious as
they are cracked up to be, but maybe its
only because they knew they were going to
have their picture taken. One fellow is very
shy and looks down at his shoe.
It looks as though the boys were making
some sort of lattice work before they were
rudely interrupted. Prehaps it would be best
to move on and let this manual training
class finish its work, because they probably
don't like to be disturbed.
Well, well, well, what is going on here?
If our guess is correct, this is the high
school journalism class. The sports editor
is busily engaged in conversation with the
editor of the Mirror, while the two girls at
the right are critically reading an issue of
the Ark Light.
The instructor is intently watching the
Work of the co-editors. The aspiring young
journalists were caught on a busy Thursday,
mailing papers to distant subscribers.
We believe that nothing could disturb the
orchestra, not even the cameraman. They
look if they were really getting down to
work and were trying to play thalfpiecr-
the way it should be played. The directolfis

The three people in the back seem to have
lost their heads over something. VVe hope it
isn't really serious.

' The team is off for another football
game-or at least they were starting when
the Mirror camera snapped them. From the
looks of the picture, Dale Hines plans to go
on a long journey.
We don't wonder that Verlin Trueblood
fell out of a car once, just look at him hang
ing out the window. Bob Wilson surely has a
winning look on his face. He doesn't seem
very worried about the coming game. Any-
way, they were a swell team!
Remember this group? They are posing
here for a scene from "The Youngest" tak-
en the night of it's presentation. Willis
Payton certainly looks the part of a dis-
tinguished lawyer, and Lucille Sharp, who
played the part of his Wife, might easily
be taken for the daughter of the best fam-
ily in town."
Doris Tredway, the mother, personifies
the conflict that exists in her family. And
even though you can only see her back,
Kathleen Pfisterer, as the maid, adds a nec-
essary finishing touch to the picture.
No wonder they always had such a good
attendance at those Hi-Y luncheons-just
look at the pleased faces of these eaters.
Howard Engleman evidently isn't camera
shy, at least he doesn't let it interfere with
h's eating. Jack Floyd seems to be bothered
ith the same trouble.
Does Emily Post say it is "the thing to
do' to write at the table, Keith? Well, I'll
bet they had lots of fun anyway.
No, they aren't wax figures, they're more
characters of the public speaking play. Vir-
ginia Day, who played the "leading lady"
part, seems to be taking things easy with
Alice Newman, who as Mui, the younger
daughter, never took things seriously.
Jack Hall, "The Youngest", evidently is
giving John Tufts the 'dickens'. He probably
needs it, too! Douglas More, who couldn't
make up his mind which side of the family
quarrel to take, seems a little hot under the

Busy and Eventiul Veer
The senior class members are all excited over their last
spring in high school with graduation close at hand. With the
school days soon to come to an end, they like to look back
over their last year in high school.
At the first of the year they elected their officers, Mack
Gilsrap, president for the third consecutive yearg Voncile Mit-
chell, vice-president, Helen Heard, secretary-treasurerg Jams
Gibson, student council representative.
The senior council members were Sara Stanley, Helen Heard,
Mack Gilstrap, Grace Newman, Madeline Miller, Voncile Mitchell,
Victor Bryant, James Gibson, and Gail Harden. They selected
the senior jewelry and the announcements..
At a senior meeting in February there was some discussion
about having a senior banquet this year. However, a ballot
vote was taken on the question, and the majority were in :favor
of having the usual picnic instead.
On March 26, the Girl Reserve, Hi-Y Carnival was held in
the junior college club rooms and small gymnasium In an im-
pressive ceremony, Vivian Logan and Victor Bryant were chosen
queen and king of the festival. Eight attendants accompanied the
rulers in the ceremony. The attendants were Mack Gilstrap, Von-
cile Mitchell, Dale Hines, Kathryn Curfman, Bruce Reid, Helen
Heard, Paul Quinn, and Grace Newman.
There were various booths and concessions including fortune
telling, telegrams, faculty throw, milk bottle throw, picture show
dart throw, Wheel of chance, and others. Kathryn Curfman won
the popularity contest conducted after the coronation.
Other candidates in the popularity contest were Voneile
Mitchell, Claire Edwards, Jeanne Day, Mable, the Mugwump.
These features combined with the many refreshments made an
enjoyable and entertaining evening of fun for all who attended.
The senior class play, "Double Door" was presented April 3,
under the direction of J. D. Davis. The seniors voted enthusiastic-
ally to have a senior play, and conduct the ticket sale. The class
was divided into two sides with Mack Gilstrap and Bill Burns as
captians. They then selected ten sub-captians who checked out
tickets to the people under them. The losing side had charge oi'
the senior day program.
At a meeting in March, the senior girls decided to wear
white sport dresses for graduation as has been done in the past,
and party dresses for the Tigerama and Baccauaureate. The boys
decided to wear dark suits.
On May 1, the seniors attended the Tigcraina, which is given
for them each year by the junior college.
Friday before the last week of school was Senior Day. All
the seniors dressed up in the most out-landish 'and original cost-
umes they could possibly think of, and wore them to school.
That afternoon the chapel program was presented by the
seniors, in charge of the students who were on Bill Burns side in
the senior play ticket sale contest, the side that lost.
After the program, school was dismissed and all three
classes adjourned to different places for their picnics to make
the day complete.

Dancing and G. A. fix. Keep
Girls Hopping and Skipping
This year has been a full one for the girls gym classes. In
ea1'ly spring and fall, tennis balls were kept bouncing as the
girls turned out for the annual tournaments while basketball
and volley balls furnished most of the mid-winter sports.
Some of the more ambitious girls try out for G. A. A. or
the Girls Athletic Association. However, the eight weeks of fol-
lowing strict health rules that a G. A. A. prospect must endure
seriously cuts down the number ot applicants. Those who follow
the rules have no easy time. If you see a girl walk slowly past
her favorite soda fountain with a longing look in her eyes, you
may safely bet that she is a G. A. A. If you notice a girl glance
at her wrist watch nervously about a quarter of ten, you should
remember that G. A. A. rules demand that she be in bed by ten.
Don't ever think, however, that these girls aren't proud of
their letters when they earn them. The state Girls Athletic As-
sociation has set standards that girls are proud to be able to
Although Arkansas City high school girls do not participate
in inter-scholastic sports, the intra-mural volley ball teams fight
for victory with much the same enthusiarxm one might expect
at a Winfield-Arkansas City basketball game. The tournament
this years was made possible largely through the efforts of Mar-
garet Lowery, student manager. Dorothy White refereed at most
of the games. Marjorie Stotfel captained the winning team on
which were Marion Stoffel, Mary Alice Ryan, Laverne Frank-
lin, Ruby Beebe, Wanda Christy, Francis Fields, and Zellene
Color, motion and gaity come from dancing! The graceful
abandon of the nymphs, the colorful exuberance of the Spanish
dancers and the ethereal lovllness of the dancing "lVlorning
Glories" were not just a background for the opera. Through
their art the dancers swayed the moods of the audience attend-
ing the operetta "Oh, Doetorn just as did the singing.
The dancers, nearly fifty in all, having been coached only
four or five weeks, did not dance perfectly. Yet in the few mom-
ents that they were on the stage they created lovlinss, which is,
after all, the aim of every artist
Jacqueline Burnett, as Hebe, the goddess of the nymphs of
dew was the only solo dancer. Besides the ballet number which
she danced with the nymphs of dew, there were raindrops, con-
spirators, morning glories, and Spainish dancers, all coached by
Miss Edith J. Davis.
Before the opera much amusement was caused by announce-
ments of dance practices. Such statements as "Raindrops meet
fifth hour today." and Conspirators meet in the auditorium," were
a source of continual wonder to the uninitiated.
During the second semester Miss Davis formed a new and
popular class for those interested in dancing, called the rythmn
class. In this group, girls are learning the fundamentals of danc-
ing technique as well as building the muscles necessary for

Girl Reserves Started
Year With A Big party
"What's your name 'ZH f'You're my little sister."
"Where is my big sister? Have you seen her?"
"Boy, are these lollipops good!"
Thus the Girl Reserves started the new school year with the
Big and Little Sister Party, to acquaint new and old members.
Following the big and little sister party was the recognition
service which inducted all new members into the Girl Reserve
In November was Prayer Week, given by the Girl Reserves
and Hi-Y together. Thanksgiving the service committee made
and delivered small pumpkin pies to shut-ins.
A little children's party was given by the social committee
in December for poor children, and barrels of food, placed in the
halls at school, were given to the Salvation Army. The Dad-
daughter Feed, and Vesper Tea given with junior high and junior
college were in February. The carnival with the Hi-Y and election
of new officers came in March.
Girl Reserves entertained their Mothers with the Mother-
Daughter banquet in April. Also in April was Service Day at
which time all the G. R.'s worked in the stores uptown to make
money for the club.
The year closed with the senior farewell, play day for junior
high girls, camp election, and "Sitting Up" Conference when the
new cabinet made plans for the next school year.
The Girl Reserve cabinet created a new plan this year for
holding its meetings. Formerly they had them Wednesday after
school alternating with committtee meetings. However, this
proved sometimes to be rather inconvient as it made the
girls late getting home. Therefore, they decided to have their
meetings at noon, and to have members of the cabinet bring
This plan worked very well, except for one time when the
president, having been excited about her grade card, forgot
about the meeting. However, it turned out all right, for she re-
membered it in time to rush back and take charge of the last
half of the meeting.
Officers of the club this year were Madeline Miller, presi-
dentg Marjorie Hadley, vice-president, Dorothy Heathman, sec-
retary, Twilah Seefeld, treasurerg Jeanne Belt, Student Council
Chairmen of the various committees were Grace Newman,
programg Kathryn Curfman, socialg Esther Sissom, finance:
.Ruby Beebe, service, Alice Lewis, music, Vivian Logan, publi-
cityg Virginia Amos, athleticg Marjorie Hadley, membership.
Sponsors were Miss Helen Silverwood, head sponsor, Miss
Edna Wheatley, Miss Lillie Nemecheck, Miss Olive Ramagc,
Miss Alice Carrow, Mrs. Daisy Hamit, and Miss Esther Denton.
Two women, Mr. Belt and Mrs. Harry Oldroyrl, were chosen
honorary members of the club by the cabinet this year. Mrs.
Belt wrote the following poem which was repeated by the pres-
ident before each general meeting.
"There are many keys to- the doors of life,
There are many keys both great and small.
But love alone is the master key,
God gives it free to all."

Christian Clubs Give Carnival
Every club that endures has a worthy purpose. So it is with
Hi-Y, the high school boys club whose purpose is to create and
maintain throughout the school and community high standards
of Christian character. In the pursuit of this purpose the club has
educated many boys annually along spiritual and cultural lines.
The governing body of the club is a cabinet which is headed
by Albert Lambert, president. The other officers, who are also on
the cabinet, are Edwin Maier, Vice-president, Keith Curfman,
secretary, Howard Engleman, treasurer: and Willis Payton,
Student Council representative. The rest of the cabinet made
up of chairmen of the various committees.
Every two weeks the club meets in the Y-Scout building
where during the noon hour, they are served a luncheon. The
cabinet arranges for the preachers of the various churches and
leading business men to address the boys on special occasions
they engage speakers from out of town. After lunch is se1'ved the
the boys generally break up into groups and spread out into the
game rooms, where they play ping pong or into the anti room
where they carry on informal discussions of timely events and
topics. Occasionally they have the more talented members
entertain them with a musical number, but most ol' the time is
used in learning to know the other members better and mastering
the principals of good fellowship.
Since the founding of the club they have always sponsored
a prayer week. The Girl Reserves, which is a club for girls built
on about the same principles as the Hi-Y, has always helped
them in promoting their big projects. Madeline Miller, president
of G. R., presided over the meetings which were called for 15
minutes every morning of the week of November 4-8.
An added activity of the Hi-Y club, working with the G. R.,
was a play which they presented in the Thanksgiving Day
assembly program. It was a one act play interpreting the true
Thanksgiving spirit in a modern setting. The cast made up oil'
Hi-Y and G. R. members, included Nina Mae Brill, Betty Ham-
ilton, Claire Edwards, lVIarjorie Hadley, Emily Jane Yount,
Margaret Lowery, Grace Newman, Victor Bryant, Howard Entr-
leman, Edwin Mair, Martin Myers, Russel Leach, and Jay Ruckcl.
One of the high spots of the year came when the District Hi-
Y convention met in Pitttsburg. Twelve delegates from the local
chapter who attended were Albert Lambert, Keith Curfman,
Howard Engleman, Duane Crill, Duane Walker, Russel Leach.
-lay Ruckel, Robert Clough, Jack Maze, John Shea, and Bruce
Edwards. The delegation stayed three days, leaving here Dec-
ember 13 and returning December 15. Mr. Hoyt Piper, head
sponsor of Hi-Y and Homer J. Clark, secretary of the character
building organizations acted as chaperons on the trip.
It has always been the custom of the club to work with the
G. R. in putting on a show once every two years. Until two years
ago the show was a circus featuring the members of the physical
education classes, with elephants, clowns, and all the trimmings.
This year a carnival was held March 27 on the lower floor of the
school building and had as its main attraction, the crowning of
Queen Patricia and King Pat frickl.

Dose of Amusement
Even an apple a day couldn't have kept us away from "Oli
Doctor!" It was one of the most sparkling, modern operettas
we've ever had, thanks to the efforts of the high school and jun-
.or college music departments.
The two leading roles were taken by Lillian Clough as Hon-
or and John Tufts as Phillip. They made a, marvelous romantic
combination, and both gave performances that were "the top."

the main heartthrob of Jim, one of Phillip's men. Marjorie

After seeing Bob, better known af, Mack Gilstrap, it was
easy to understand why Dr. Drinkwater df sired a match between
him and Glory. Oh yes, and Marjorie Crill as Madame Chere,
Honor's mother, not only captivated Dr. Drinkwater, but the
audience as well.
Charles L. Hinchee and A. F 'an Romani deserve lot..
of bouquets for giving us such a. Htertaining evening. Th-'
musical score, plus the dialogue '-.is used effectively by the
characters to turn out a finished pf: formance.
To Miss Edith Davis goes th' credit for the novel and
lovely dances. The most outstanding number was the ballet,
given as an interpretation of the birth of the spring. Nina
Marine Davis took the part of the goddess, and Dick A. Hc-ward
played the part of the pilgrim. Jacqueline Burnett did 11 sol'-
dance, accompanied by a chorus of nymphs.
Others who were responsible for the success of this
presentation were Miss Esther Denton who was in charge of the
costuming, and Miss Vera Koontz who took care of the scenery.
Vic Gillespie was stage manager, W. A. Sneller arranged for
the stage carpentry, Howard Clark was property manager, and
Willis Payton was business manager.

Vocational Ag. Classes l-lave
Extensive Activity program
Filling the current demand for vocational education, the Ark-
anas City High School, furnishes a course in vocational agricul-
ture under the direcion of T. C. Farris.
The course is, first of all, a laboratory course, planned around
three projects, major, minor, and continuation. These projects
consist of raising and breeding farm animals and cultivating
plots of gound. By the time he graduates a boy may have a
plot of ground planted in feed crops, a litter of pigs and a cow
or two. In short, he has a complete farm, which with his training
may be set to work earning him a living as soon as he desires.
In this mechanical age farm shop training is almost a necess-
ity. Here the boys learn to use all kinds of wood and metal
working tools as well as the forge. Thus after two years they
are able to repair almost any kind of farm equipment.
Each year the class conducts a potato variety contest. The
potatoes are tested for yield and market value. The most out-
standing activity of the class deals with cattle judging. During
the year boys are sent out, individually or in teams, to fairs and
stock shows to judge cattle. Then in the spring a group of the
best "judges" are chosen and called the Judging Team. This year
Harold Mueller, Athur Rahn and Delbert Higbee were chosen.
Those on the judging squad were NVilliam Post, Lloyd Cochran,
Wendel Beeks, John Wei1', Gilford Golf, Walter Baird. and Pat
The class sponsors a chapter of Future Farmers of America
which is a nationwide organization and acts as a guide to all
extra-curricular activities of the department. Although the
Future Farmers plan their year's program in detail before start-
ing to- carry it out, they have meetings each month in which
they discuss current developments of argricultural methods. In
the fall the club prepares a booth for the county fair. This spring
they cooperated with the Farm Bureau in distributing 130 bags
of certified, tested potatoes among club members and to farmers
in southern Cowley county. The solution in which the aggs dipped
the potatoes killed scab and fungus diseases, thereby giving the
potato, as a seed, a better chance of growing.
An important project of the F. F. A. is the distributing of a
carload of western breeding ewes among their members. They
raise lambs and ship them cooperatively to the fat lamb market
at Kansas City, Missouri. In this project the aggs learn of the
new movement toward cooperative farming.
The F. F. A. program also provides for recreation such as a
basketball team, a turkey dinner at Thanksgiving, a skating
party and a three days camp at Wentz's in the summer.
In the mill-work class taught by W. A. Sneller, boys may learn
to use tools and gather a knowledge of woods, nails and screws.
Mr. Sneller stresses habits of working harmoniously together
and obeying orders as being equally important as the knowledge
of the subject itself. The class offers very few individual projects
since the work consists of odd construction jobs about the school.
Experience in turning on both wood and metal lathes is offered
by this department.

1935 Bulldog Gricisters
Were Twice Victorious
Two victories, seven defeats, and one tie make up the re-
cord of the Bulldog gridiron warriors for the 1935 season.
Starting out in great form, the Arks posted two victories
over non-conference opponents, only to fluke out in their first
conference tilt, dropping a 34-O game to Hutchinson.
The next four weeks saw the Bulldogs losing to ElDorado,
Capitol Hill, Augusta, and Pratt, respectively.
It was in the next game that the Bulldogs played the best
football of the entire season, pulling out a 13-13 tie with the
Newton Railroaders. The Arks traveled to Newkirk and were
humbled 12-7 by the Oklahomans' passing attack.
In the final game of the season, the Bulldogs surprised dope-
sters by holding a heavier Crusader eleven, which was picked to
win by at least three touchdowns, to a lone touchdown-made in
the first three minutes of play.
There were thirteen boys who recieved letters on this year's
football squad. Seven of these are graduating, leaving six around
which to build next year's team. Those who graduate this year
are Paul Quinn, Cole Daily, George Griffith, Aldo Orin, Dale
Hines, Louis Abernathy, and Alfred Howard.
At right end we had Paul Quinn, a lanky lad who demon-
strated his pass-snagging ability in the Capitol Hill game. On
the other end position was Joe Stafford who was short, but made
up for his lack of height with good, hard playing.
Tackle positions were held down by Cole Daily, a stalwart
heavy player who started out slow and came out in the final
game of the year to play his best game of the season, and
George Griffith, a 225 pounder who made the going plenty tough
for any enemy ball-lugger who happened to try his side of the
At the left guard Aldo Orin filled the bill very well, break-
ing through the line many times to stop opposing ball-luggers
in their tracks. Other guards who lettered this year are Thomas
Ashburn and Marvin Shackleford, a sophomore and a junior who
played outstanding football, plugging up the center of the line
very effectively thus forcing the opposing teams to resort to end
Five players earned letters in the backfield. They are Ken-
neth Steele, Robert Wilson, Louis Abernathy, George Pitts, ani"
Alfred Howard. Kenneth Steele played quarterback for the first
half the season after which he was shifted to halfback. He was
the hardest hitter on the team and played his hardest from the
opening whistle until the final gun.
Robert Wilson, playing halfback, was shifted up to second
team quarterback in place of Abernathy who went to first tcanx
when Steele was shifted to half. Abernathy, diminutive quarter-
back, was a good, steady player and a capable safety man.
The remaining two backfield lettermen are George Pitts, a
junior, who developed into an excellent passer and looks like a
"comer" for next year's eleven, and Alfred Howard, a good,
steady halfback who showed up well on defense, a fact which
he very aptly demonstrated in the Wellington game.

'Twas Friday the 13th, but the play must go on--so the
public speaking class, defying the fates, presented "The Young-
est" by Philip Barrie as their annual speech play.
"The Youngest" is, as the title implies. centered around the
ambitions of the youngest son, Richard, of the wealthy
but dominating Winslow family. He wished to pursue a literary
career but his elder brother, Oliver, who holds the strings to the
family purse, is very opposed to his ambition. He and Mark, the
teasing brother, can not understand why Richard is not willing
to work as they do in the pin factory left to them by their father.
His mother and his married sister, Agusta, agree with his bro-
thers, but his younger sister, Muff, and Allan, his brother-in-law
feel that Richard has a right to choose his own life.
These sentiments are echoed by Nancy Blake, a friend visit-
ing Muff. She makes a bet with Muff that she can arouse Richard
to dominate his family in a week. Muff readily takes her up on it,
and there follows general family revolution. Richard makes his
own terms, to which his family are only too ready to agree, and
wins the fair Nancy.
The leading roles were taken by Virginia Day HS NHUCY,
and Jack Hall as Richard. John Tufts portrayed Oliver, the elder
brother, Douglas More played the part of Mark, the smart aleckg
Alice Newman took the part of Muff, the fun-loving younger
sister, Lucille Sharpe played Augusta, the bored, married sister,
Alan, her husband, was played by Willis Payton, Doris Treaclway
portrayed Mrs. Winslow, mother of this odd brood. Kathleen
Piisterer played Katie, the maid.
The play was directed by J. D. Davis, public speaking in-
structor. Bob lVlcClanahan and Bob Faulconer were business

Recording School Activities
An all-important question asked of high school journalists is
"Does your school have its own printing press ?" Our printing
department prints the college and high school annuals, the Ark
Light, tickets and programs, calendars, and all record cards and
This department is a pre-vocational course in the art of print-
ing, which provides an opportunity for self expression and de-
velops technical skill.
Good printing requires foresight in planning, initiative, stick-
tol-it-iveness, and an understanding of human reactions to the
printed page. It develops the complete personality.
Printing, "The Mother of Progress," and education are insep-
arable. This activity provides the opportunity to apply the
"Learn by Doing" philosophy to our teaching methods.
A system of rotation of positions is employed, in which the
fellow who does the make-up work changes with the cylinder
pressman, the stereotypers alternate with the job pressmen, and
the advertising compositors rotate likewise. The linotype operat-
ors do not rotate as this is a separate course. This plan of varia-
tion ofers a more thorough training in the different phases of
Student printers who make 'B's are eligible for membership
in the Pica Club, the social organization enjoyed by the printers.
The club meets every other Friday in the print shop.
Pica officers for the first semester were Ross Turner, presi-
dentg George Pitts, vice-presidentg Jack Maze, secretary-treasuw
er and Ark Light reporterg and Howad Clark, sergeant at arms.
Ross Turner was re-elected president for the second semester
and Jack Maze continued to be the combined secretary-treasurer
and Ark Light reporter, Alvin Scott succeeded Pitts as vice-
president, and Frank Henderson was elected sergeant-at-arris.
"The Pica", the paper published by the printing students, is
issued at irregular intervals. It shows excellent training and the
boys get experience in editing and supervising a small paper.
Many field trips were taken to commercial shops by the class.
In these shops they viewed and inspected bigger projects and
how they are carried out and supervised. One of the most in-
teresting of these was a trip to the Wichita commercial shops.
Five graduates from the high school print shop are now em-
ployed by the Daily Traveler, which fact in itself shows the
vocational success of the department.
Harold E. Gish, printing instructor, has an excellent way of
getting things done, otherwise the department could never mas-
ter all the projects they are required to do. He has always been
willing to cooperate with the students whose work encompasses
his department, giving the Ark Light and Mirror staffs valuable
aid and information.

tiuiidog tiasicetbali Quintet
Closes Successful Season
Playing a superb brand of ball throughout the entire season
to turn in twenty victories out of twenty-three games,Ark City
high's Bulldog cagesters captured two titles and were runners-up
to another to complete what would be called "a successful
season" in any man's language.
The Arks started out in great form by handing two non-con-
ference opponents a thorough lashing. They were victorious over
Wellington, 41-15 in their first Ark Valley encounter. By the end
of the Hrst round of play, the Arks were conceded little chance
of coming out on top, having lost games to Newton and Winfield.
From then on, however, Coach Nicholson's quintet made win-
ning games a habit, sweeping all opposition aside to win the Ark
Valley title for the current season with twelve victories and two
Continuing with their brilliant offensive campaign, the Bull-
dogs copped the regional elimination tournament at Winiield the
following week, outclassing VVellington, 32-14, and Augusta, 36-
21, nosing out Winfield in the finals, 28-23-.
Heralded as an outstanding contender for the state title, the
Arks swamped their first two opponents in the Topeka event to
enter the semi-iinals against Wyandotte. It was here that the
Bulldogs played their best game of the tournament, turning back
a stronger team than they played in the finals, 30-22.
2 to 1 favorites to win, Ark City's purple and gold quintet
went into the final round against Newton, only to hit an off night
and play their worst game of the season, dropping a 33-24 decis-
ion to the Railroaders and with it the state title.
Featuring in the Bulldogs' attack this year was the well nigh
invincible scoring triumvirate of Reid, Quinn, and Engleman. It
is unusual for a team to have as many as three leading scorers
and it was this quality that gave the Arks their superior offens-
This trio, with Reid as pivot man and Quinn and Engleman
at forwards, marked up total of 695 points for the season. Engle-
man was first in the Ark Valley individual scoring while Reid and
Quinn were second and fourth respectively. Their respective
averages for the season are 10.91, 10.71, and 8.40.
The two guards on the first quintet were Truel Shaffer, a
husky defensive man who played an important part by retrieving
the ball from the opposing team's backboard, and Richard "Red"
Colopy. Robert Wilson who was substituted frequently for these
two, saw just about as much action they did.
The remaining second team guard was David Benjamin, long
shot artist, with Edwin Maier at center, and Kenneth Mcssner
and Keith Curfman at forwards.
This was the most outstanding Bulldog basketball team since
1932 when Rogers and Noble led the Arks to the Ark Valley
championship and to the finals of the state tournament. Next
year will see another winning team with Englenian and the
entire second team returning.

Student Council ls Active
ln Launching Junior Patrol
The Student Council of 1935-36 has been unusually pro-
gressive in its government of the school for this year.
Raymond Ausmus was elected president of the council by a.
vote of the entire student body at the regular fall election.
The members of the organization elected Paul Quinn as their
president pro-tem, and Margaret Dixon was elected secretary.
Each conference of the school elects a representative for the
Student Council whose work is to present there the condensed
opinion of his conference as a whole. Thus the council can feel
out the individual opinions of every group in the school. The
sponsors of the Student Council are Miss Beryl Harbaugh and
Miss Edna Wheatley.
Two major projects were accomplished by the Student
Council in their work for this year. The first was the program
for the Thanksgiving game over which the football queen was
to preside. This queen was selected from the girls of the senior
class and nominated by the student bodyg the five highest nom-
inees were then voted on by the student body. The identity of the
queen, Lucille Sharpe, was not revealed until the half, when she
was crowned by the football captain for the day, Dale Hines.
The other four nominees, Helen Heard, Vivian Logan, Voncile
Mitchell, and Virginia Day, acted as attendants to the queen.
A parade was held before the game in which each conference
contributed a float and elected an attendant for the queen from
its group. The prize for the best float was awarded to Carl Hel-
At the half, the band escorted the five nominees and the con-
ference attendants to the south end of the field. The queen was
then announced over the loudspeaker and escorted to her throne
from which she reigned over the remainder of the game, sur-
rounded by her attendants. A similar Thanksgiving program was
carried out two years ago.
The second and most outstanding accomplishment was the
organization and putting into effect of the Junior Patrol. This
project was started by the Student Council of last year but was
not completed. The foundation of the patrol system had been
previously laid but all details and rules concerning its being put
into effect were carried out this year. The Kiwanis and Lyons
clubs of the city sponsored the project and bought the equipment.
The Junior Patrol has been adopted in all the schools of the city,
including the junior college.
To the Student Council was left the job of making out tfie
rules, deciding the honor points to be received by the patrelmc-n,
and electing the boys to fill these positions. The captains of the
four squads, which worked in shifts before school, at noon and
after school, were Warren Thomas, Frank Henderson, Wayne
Thomas, and Bill Stuart. Ross Kinnamon, a junior college stu-
dent, was named first lieutenant, head of all patrolmen.
Due credit should be given the Student Council for these
two important results of its activities for 1935-36.

Three Large Glee Clubs
Keep the School Singing
Every Hfth hour excepting Thursday, which is chapel day,
C. L. Hinchee, vocal instructor, is beseiged by several hundred
Glee Club members. The boys meet every Monday and Wednes-
day while the girls meet on Tuesdays and Fridays. Just as if this
xveren't enough there is also a sixth hour girls glee club which
alternates with gym classes.
Besides receiving valuable training in group singing and solo
Work, these students under the direction of Mr. Hinchee under-
take two major projects, Handel's "Messiah" and a light opera.
In the presentation of the "Messiah" the combined high
school glee clubs, junor college chorus, and the regular high
school chorus class were used to sing the chorus work. Soloists
engaged from surrounding towns were Miss Mable Markle,
sopranog Miss Gladys Dunkelberger, contraltog Roy L. Schues-
sler, bass. Mr. Hinchee not only directs the chorus, but also sings
the tenor solos. A special 35 piece orchestra accompanied all
musical numbers. A. E. San Romani, insrumental music director,
is in charge of the orchestra.
From these glee clubs the opera cast and chorus were
lected. The musical comedy given was "Oh, Doctor!" by Clark.
Each organization has its president whose duty is to act as
assistant director in the absence of Mr. Hinchee, a secretary who
is responsible for doing and distributing the activity slips, and
the librarian who is in charge of all music. ,
In the fifth hour glee club, Hope Day is president, Alice
Newman, secretary, and Voncile Mitchell and Jerry Ames are
librarians. Jacqueline Burnett is president of the sixth hour glee
club, Helen Dorance, secretary, and Kathryn Curfman, librar-
The boys glee club is headed by John Tufts, president, David
Mitchell, secretary, and Truel Shaffer, librarian. John Tufts is
Mr. Hinchee has picked three high school quartets this year
who sang for various clubs about town. John Tufts, Richard Hall,
Joe Sweeley, and Harold Keller make up the boys quartet. In
the girls quartet are Alice Newman, Evelyn Caine, Betty Brady,
and Hope Day the mixed quartet is composed of Alice Newman,
Betty Brady, John Tufts, and Harold Keller.
A small but mighty part of the music department is the
fourth hour chorus class. This class, organized in 1932, furnish-
es an opportunity to students interested in studying more thor-
oughly singing processes. During last semester, anyone coming
into the music room during the fourth hour might have heard
such tongue-twisters as:
"Dandy Dan dallies down dilly dale,
Dorothy Dante drolls a dull tale."
This song and many others taken from the "Voce Study
Plan" taught the ambitious musicians to sing their consonants.
Whether as a glee club member or as a soloist, there is a
place in the music department for every student in high school.
"Sing, school sing", might well be adopted as the department's

l-iigli School Band lVleets
Busy Veer Successfully
The 1935-36 band is, to our notion, the best and largest one
we've had since A. C. H. S. was organized. The members arc
more loyal, better-behaved, and a harder-working bunch than
ever before. We feel that the band is an invaluable asset to the
school, as well as to the town as a whole. What better adver-
tisement could our school and town have than this group of
boys and girls, wearing the purple and the gold, marching down
the street '?
This year the band headed the march at all civic and school
parades. This group has brought glory and honor to Arkansas
City and to the high school, for it means much to the city and to
a school to be able to depend upon a good band. Whenever we
wanted to add spice and ginger to a parade of any kind, civic
or one for advertisfng, we always called on the band, and we were
And were we proud of them when they represented our
state at the American Royal stock show in Kansas City! Indeed
our band was not one of which We were ashamed. Other trips
taken were to the South Haven fair, September 272 Chautauqua
County fair, October 5, Cowley County fair, October 113 out
the trip to Kansas City on October 21, which was the "trip of
Officers in the band this year are president, William Guth-
rieg manager, Bill Stuart, secretary, Will Etta Long, librarian,
Jack Brannumg properties, Bill Ferguson, major domo, Betty
Ann Gericke, and last, but not least, the official goat, Bob Mc-
Clanahan, who does all the dirty work.
Added attractions which the band featured for this year were
the five twirling majors, who were Will Etta Long, Keith Cum-
mins, Marcalee Ferguson, Velma Thomas, and Ernestine Bigley.
The other new feature was the "Scotch Bass Drummer", which
was enacted by Bill Stuart.
Leading the group for the football games were the color
sergeant, Vivian Brown, two color bearers, Doris Richards,
American flag. and Dorothy Probst, school flag, and the two
color guards, Helen Mingle and Dorothy Mapel. They lent that
"certain something" that made you feel all kinds of thrills of
patriot.sm for the U. S. and the A. C. H. S.
Playing for the football and basketball games was a part
of the band's duties. All new drills and stunts were given at
the halves of the games. Getting here at school almost every
morning at seven-thirty is no laughing matter, but the band has
always been willing to be here to practice with the Pep Club.
After seeing the stunt between halves of the first football
game, we relished the idea of being entertained by the band.
These "between halves" stunts were always very interesting,
and for the basketball games were usually funny.
On the whole, our band has achievedniore this year than
ever before, and maybe you think we're not proud of them! Due
credit should be paid to the director, A. E. San Romani, or "San".

for us to be proud of.

Senior play A Starlc Drama,
Bank Day ls Regular l-labit
The senior play presented April 3rd was a drama, "Double
Door," by Elizabeth McFadden.
Victoria Van Bret, Nadine Holmes, has ruled her house-
hold with an iron hand for so many years that everyone fears
her and obeys her slightest command. Caroline Van Bret, Emily
Jane Yount, was crushed by her sister's dominating will years
ago, and Victoria hates her for her weakness.
Rip Van Bret, Dick Howard, Victoria's half-brother, has
recovered from serious illness and is determined to marry his
nurse, Anne Darrow, Captola Shelhamer. When Rip and Anne
return from their honeymoon, Victoria begins a deliberate cam-
paign to break down their love, and to get rid of Anne.
Anne turns to her old friend Dr. Sully fWillis Payton? for
friendship, but Victoria finds this out and has a detective, Mr.
Lambert, fEverett Garnerj follow them. As Anne and Rip pre-
pare to leave after a stormy session, Victoria entices Anne into
the mysterious vault behind the double door and leaves her
their to die.
Through the efforts of Mr. Neff. the family lawyer, Ray-
mond Ausmus, Rip, and Caroline, Anne is finally rescued. Vic-
toria seeing that she is losing not only her power but her own
sister and nephew, loses her mind and locks herself behind the
Servants in the Van Bret household are Avery, the house-
keeper, Lois Ronsick, Telson, the butler, Bob Mcfllanahan:
William, the footman, Robert Ramsey, and Louise, the maid,
Pauline Turner. The part of the old jeweler, Mr. Chase, was
taken by Albert Lambert.
Bruce Reid was business manager, Alice Newman and
Virginia Day were property managers, and Cole Daily was stage
manager. The play was directed by J. D. Davis, speech in-
Bank Day! These words are familiar to every student in
high school who has attended the Arkansas City Schools since
1925. Every Tuesday morning, the students bank and maintain
savings accounts in the Home National Bank, which charges no
fee for assisting in the system. This banking system tends to
instill thrifty habits and an appreciation of the value of money
in the student's minds.
To carry on the business with the bank, and take care of
the banking in the school, the Cashiers Club was formed. Mem-
bers of the club consist of a cashier and his assistant who are
elected from each conference. Gail Harden is the head cashier,
and Kenneth Messner, assistant. Kenneth will be head cashier
next year. .
The Cashiers Club meets every Monday morning in the
library. Principal E. A. Funk is sponsor of the club, whose
aim is to get every student to bank.
Each year the school is visited by Ralph Winkleman,
representative of Thrift and Company, Inc., of Chicago. Mrs.
Winlcleman always gives an interesting talk with the help of
her pet monkey whose motto this year was, "Tell your dollars
where to go instead of asking where they went."

School Entertainments Arc
Set to Music by Qrchcstra
One of the most often heard yet seldom heard about organi-
zations in high school is the special orchestra. This select group
which accompanies the opera and Messiah and plays for school
plays and entertainments, is an outgrowth of another organiza-
tion. Just as all practical things come from dreams and theories,
so the special orchestra is practical because its members have
been trained and given experience in another group, the Senior
This year there are 85 students in this large organization.
Here, under the direction of Archie E. San Romani, they play
symphony and opera scores at the same time they are learning
the technique of the instrument they are playing,
The orchestra meets fourth hour as a regular class on Tues-
day, Thursday, and Friday of each week. The officers are Bill
Stewart, president, William Guthrie, assistant directorg Mary
Pickett, secretary and treasurer and Jack Branum, Librarian.
perhaps the most trying job in the orchestra is that of librarian.
Imagine keeping track of 85 seperate scores of music for each
piece the orchestra plays. And it would sound nice, wouldn't it,
if the bass viol got the nrst violin part by mistake.
Queer as it may seem the orchestra is not perfect. As a
matter of fact there came a time when so many members of the
orchestra asked silly questions that "San" brought a large tin
star to school with him and presented it each day to the person
who asked the dumbest question. Members of the orchestra
report that "San" himself once appeared in class wearing the
"Silly Question Star".
Since it is such a large organization, the Senior Orchestra
cannot appear often in public. In fact its only public appearance
during the year 1935-36 was on a chapel program, where they
played "Sakuntala" by Ca1'l Goldmark, "Allegro movement from
Symphony in E Minor" by Antoino Dvorak, and "Les Prelude-s"
by Franz Lizst.
The members of the special orchestra are selected from the
large orchestra. As only the best and more experienced stu-
ents are chosen for this group, the students in the music dep-
artment consider it an honor to be chosen, and all work with
this goal in mind.
Often, with only a short time in which to practice, the
organization is expected to accompany this or that entertainment.
Among the formost tasks given to the group this year were play-
ing for the Arkalalah, the Messiah, and the operetta, "Oh.
Through their experiences in playing for the different clubs
and social functions, they gain much practical experience and
become better musicians in every sense of the word.
The organization practices fifth hours and often after school
at six before the opera or Messiah is presented. Since they also
play for the senior class play, the public speaking play, the
junior high play, and the junior college play, the group have
learned a nunber of popular pieces. The library of the organ-
ization contains not only the music of the great masters, but
also semi-classical and popular music.

Have picture Snappeci
One bitterly cold day in October distressing sounds could be
heard coming from the middle of Summit street.
"My hands are freezing. Will this never end?"
"Look, we have to stay here for another fifteen minutes while
they take our picture."
Yes, youve guessed it. It was the Pep Club drilling with the
band up town before the Arkalalah parade. A large majority
of the members had failed to dress warmly enough and could
hardly wait to get near a fire, although they were having fur.
Then, just as everyone was anticipating a word of dismissal, two
reporters from the Wichita Beacon requested that the Pep Club
and band line up to have their picture taken.
That evening it was colder, but the Pep Club was out again to
march, with most of the members looking several pounds heavier.
Who says red iiannels are out?
This scene portrays the spirit of the Pep Club whose aim is
to interest the enti1'e student body in school sports. Jacqueline
Burnett was head cheer leader this year and John Shea was
assistant. Sponsors of the club were J. Kelsey Day, Miss Ruth
Curfman, and Miss Edith Joyce Davis.
Officers were Bruce Reid, president, David Mitchell, vice-
presidentg Pauline Turner, secretary, Margaret Dixon, Student

Special mention should be given to A. E. San Romani for his
work in teaching the Pep Club the drills which they put on be-
tween halves at the football games.
Alice Newman and Betty Hamilton deserve much credit for
the unique and clever pep Chapels which they presented, and the
cheer leaders for their untiring efforts to arouse the pep of the
school with yells.
This year the Pep Club made a new rule, whereby a member.
upon honorable discharge from high school, shall receive a small
bulldog emblem when he turns in his old emblem.
The small bulldog is about two inches smaller than the one
worn on the sweaters, and will probably be more appreciated by
the Pep Club members than money, because it will be something
to remind them of the fun they had in this organization.
In the middle of a very exciting basketball game Jacqueline
Burnett, head cheer leader, became so animated that she got
her commands and yells mixed up and loudly yelled-
"Bulldogs tear everybody up, let's go!"
However as everyone else was just about as excited as Jackie
they jumped up and yelled, and Arkansas City won the game by
a big score.

didn't it send cold chills up and down your spine and make you
resolve to live up to the ideals of the society? These quiet and
beautiful services seem to give the student body respect for all
who have been made members.
It is truly an honor to become a member of his organization.
In fact, it is the highest honor a high school student can receive.
An Honor Society member is one who does things, one who is
more than likely to be just as good a citizen as he is a student.
In order to become a member of this honor group, one must
be in the upper third of his class in scholarship. Students
nominate a first and second choice, from which the faculty elect
the ones they think most iitted for membership.
At the beginning of this year, Virginia Holman, Grace New-
man, Sara Stanley, Jay Ruckel, Raymond Ausmus, and Victor
Bryant who were made members when they were juniors, were the
society's only active members. In the first semester, Emily
Jane Yount, Dorothy Probst, Nina Mae Brill, Mary Jane Ralph.
Dick Howard, Gail Harden, Willis Payton, and Worth Payton
were elected to membership.
Lucille Sharpe and Dorothy Heathman, seniors, were inducted
into Honor Society during the last semester. At this same time,
Marjorie Crill, Evelyn Broderson, Howard Engleman, and
Kenneth Messner were also made members.
Services marked by simplicity, beauty, and impressiveness.
induct new members into the society. Victor Bryant, president
during the first semester, presided over the first induction
ceremony. After Prin. E. A. Funk had officially accepted the
candidates for membership the four cardinal objectives of the
society, scholarship, leadership, service, and character were de-
nned by active members.
In his interpretation of scholarship, Jay Ruckel said that a
person of this standing found no subject too difficult. "Leader-
ship," said Sara Stanley, "is found in the one who dares to go
forward when others hesitate."
"Character is refiected in the personality," pointed out Raym-
ond Ausmus, "and is predominate in the person who works with
a purpose." Grace Newman explained, in her definition of service,
that it was a great virtue and could be carried out by thoughts
oi' others instead of oneself.
Willis Payton served as president during the last semester,
with Gail Harden as vice-preidentg and Nina Mae Brill, secretary-
treasurer. Officers for the first semester were Victor Bryant,
presidentg Virginia Holman, vice-president, Sara Stanley, sec-
retary-treasurer, and Grace Newman, Student Council represent-
Not only are Honor Society members inducted formally into
the chapter, but are also initiated very informally. These initia-
tions have proved to be clever and fun.
Miss Virginia Weisgerber is chairman of the society's commit-
tee and is responsible for the induction services. Others serving
on th committee are Miss Inez Johnson, Miss Helen Silverwnod,
Miss Wilma Imes, Hoyt Piper, and Carl Helgeson.

OF This years Debate
With a group of the fastest talkers in school, J. D. Davis,

man, a junior, had debated beforeg but this year was the first for

The question. "Resolved that the several states should enact
legislation providing for a complete system of medical service
available to all citizens at public expense," demanded much digg-
ing into thick learned-looking books on the part of the clebaters.
In fact, the Goon's conference will testify that Douglas More
spent many first hours with his nose in books of such description.
He's not the only one. It seems that a debater just must be some-
thing of a bookworm.
The big "trip" of the year was made to Oklahoma City where
the team came to the quarter-f'inals. The debaters took first place
in the tournament at Tonkawa and second place at Wellington
and Wichita. They also debated at Winfield and Coffeyville dur-
ing the season.
Everett Garner, the budding orator of the team, won second
place in the Ark Valley Contest with his oration "Mars Masquer-
ade." The problem upon which he based his 0-ration is that pre-
sented by the much discussed artical "-And Sudden Death."

New Plan ol Financial Budget Tried
"The crying need of the hour--" began the ad-
ministration, while we groaned at the mention of
another "crying need," "is democracy."
Then trouble started in earnest. At first It seem-
ed that democracy would kill either the Ark Light
or the Mirror. Then the irate Mirror stalt and the
Ark Light statl' got together and "cooked up" a
In previous years the students had paid a sub-
scription fee of sixty cents forthe paper. The
class dues, especially of the seniors, were quite
high, for they helped pay for the class cuts and
finance the class picnics. If these same students
belonged to any organization which had an indivi-
dual cut in the annual, again they were required
to pay a fee, besides the regular price of the book.
True, in the past, the yearhooks had been very
elaborate with formal pictures of every club, or-
ganization, and activity in school. There were also
many fancy shaped cuts all of which increased the
cost of the book a great deal.
An experiment was worked out which at nrst
appeared doubtful, but happily has proved com-
mercially successful. This year the annual and
school paper were offered together for the sum of
one dollar. To get one the student must buy both

easily since merchants felt that the paper was
reaching' more people.
In spite of the lowered budget none ol' the main
features ol' the annual have been lost. There are
still individual pictures of all juniors and seniors,
also group pictures of the sophniores. To replace
the formal organization pictures, snapshots were
taken ol? activities rather than organizations.
All requirements have been met, and still we
have a bi-monthly school paper and a annual
which would met any standard.
The work of the Mirror statlf is unusual in that
most of the work must be done outside oi' class.
Those in charge of snapshots had more to do this
year than ever before. Since l'ormal pictures of ac-
tivities were cut out to save expense, snapshots
taken by this group were subitituted, Voncile Mit-
chnll was snapshot editor. David Mitchell and Hal
Lightstone were her assistants. Allan E. Maag
also helped with the' snapshots.
James Gibson, art editor, and Martha Jane
McCall, assistant, spent long' hours pasting pic-
tures for the annual. Dorothy Heathman, Emily
Jane Yount, Virginia Day, Sara Stanley, Jerry
Christy, Claire Edwards, Duane Crill, and Ray-
mond Ausmus kept track of school events in order
to record them for the yearbook.
Victor Bryant, business manager, had the task
of seeing that the new financial plan was carried
out, and the books balanced.

Colorlul Bulletin ldoards and Gay posters
Add Brightness and Variety to the l-lalls
The gray walls that line the halls-they were
brightened and changed every week or so if you
only noticed. On the landings of the stairs one
could see announcements concerning Girl Reserve
meetings changing each week and displaying gay
happenings of the organization. Vivian Logan
was responsible for the posters this year. The
Girl Reserves also furnished poems and pictures
seen in the blue triangle bulletin boards at each
end of the upstairs hall.
The art bulletin board in the west hall was
unusually interesting this year, because of the
campaign the art class made against careless
students who spoil public property.
lt all came about because of the lipstick
smeared all over the design displayed about De-
cember. Poster committees were formed, and each
week for two months afterwards saw the art bul-
ketin board filled with unique posters bearing such
mottos as--"Art students enjoy making Displays."
The motto "Just look, don't touch!" was accom-
panied by a picture of a little girl who was stret-
ching her hand toward a picture that she couldn't
Other months one could see paintings of trees,
houses, flowers, pretty girls and almost everything
else, if he took time to notice.
The hall space drawing the most attention for
its size, this year, was that on which health dis-
plays were made. The true spirit of competition
took hold of the conferences in such manner as to
assure very interesting displa.ys. In fact no one we
know envies the judges who must decide which
display was the best.
One would gather from the health bulletin board
that life after all is just a gamble. Display after
display was made in the form of a roulette wheel,
a carnival, a hunt. All agreed on the simple rules
they'd been drilled on since the grade school days,
but presented the old ideas in new ways.
In the big book, "A Tale of Two Cities," was
pictured three phases of two cities-a healthy
and an unhealthy one. The clean and dirty indivi-
dual, the clean and dirty home, and the clean and
dirty city were contrasted in a striking way.
The book stand caused no little comment, when
it published the "True Confession" featuring the
confession of A. Germ and the "Why She Married
Her Boss" magazine.
Remember the advice to the lovelorn, the hunt,
and the Popeye display? The posters placed at the
head of the front steps kept students up on sports
during football and basketball season. Pictures
and posters always "popped out" on grey wall
space when a play or operetta was due.
Who says the halls are dull and grey? School
events in picture form can always he found in

A C AT PLAY
The mixed quartet just had to pick the
shiniest car in front of the school before
they could pose for their picture.
Although smiles seem to be their special-
ity, they can sing too. John Tufts and
Harold Keller will at least sit up for their
"dear public", but Alice Newman and Betty
Brady monchalantly lean upon the radiator.
No one knows whom the car belongs to. Let's
hope he doesn't mind.
This is a scene just before the serving
of the Mother-Daughter Tea given by the
Girl Reserves and Y. W. C. A. this spring.
These girls and mothers are responsible for
the entertainment and refreshments.
Seated at the tables are Madeline Miller,
president of Girl Reserves, Betty Barbara
Tolles, president of Blue Triangle, Freda
Wilson, president of the college Y. W. C. A.
and Mrs. Guy Curfman.
"The pity of the snow that hides all scars"
This beautiful bit of poetry by John Keats
expresses this picture.
The new fallen snow and ice forms a glit-
tering background for our high school. All
time-worn battlemarks are covered, and
everything seems new again, even the cars.
Rarely is scene such as this caught by the
lens of the camera, yet such loveliness as
this is reflected forever in beautiful lives.
Who could look sour while living in
Dr. Drinkwater's sanitarium. Never-the-less
these three doctors, Wayne Thomas, Nor-
man Troxell, and Douglas More, appear to
End their occupation rather distasttul.
However the famous water doesnit seem
to dampen the spirits of the patients, Hope
Day, Captola Shelliamer, and Emily Jane
Yount, for they are enjoying themselves in
spite of their ridiculous costumes.

Pictured at the center on the opposite page are
the Ark Valley basketball champions for the
1935-36 season- the Arkansas City high school
On the front row at the extreme left is Richard
Colopy, red-headed guard whose cool, steady play-
ing stopped many enemy rallys. Next to Colopy
is Paul Quinn, forward and co-captain, who has
been a regular for two years, Quinn was placed
on the second team all-Valley and given all-state
In the center of the front row is Bruce Reid,
center and co-captain, a valuable all-around player
and key man of the Bulldogs' offense. Reid was
named first team center in all-Valley rankings and
received all-state recognition.
Sitting on Reid's left is Truel Shaffer, husky
guard, whose mid-season entrance to the Bulldog
tive aided the Arks defense considerably. At the
extreme right is'lloward Englc-man, Ark City's
blond flash, who lcd the Valley in scoring in his
first year of competition. And was placed on the
all-valley and all-state teams.
The second team is pictured standing. They lost
only two games throughout the entire season-
both of them to the Newton seconds by a onu-
David Benjamin, at left, was probably the best
scorer among the seconds, sinking many long
shots from the center of the gym. Robert lVilson
the other guard, saw about as much action as
Colopy and Shaffer, working the ball for many
scores. He received all-state recognition.
Maier, second team center, played a good,
steady game, while Messner, and Curfman showed
up Well in the forward positions. l-ltanding at the
extreme 'right is Coach Nicholson.
Pictured at the bottom of the opposite page is
the Bulldog football squad for the year 1935.
There was a total of twenty-three boys on this
year's squad and, although they did not win many
games, the boys on the squad gained experience
and show promise of a winning eleven for next
Coach Nicholson will have an abundance of mat-
erial left in the backfield next year, but his line
reserves are few and far between with both first
team tackles, both ends, one guard, and center
The boys are shown in this picture on Thanks-
giving day just before their encounter with Well-
ington, which they lost G-0.
