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 school. PAGE 3 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 not visible in this picture, but he is probably quite near. The three people in the back seem to have lost their heads over something. VVe hope it isn't really serious.

AC AT PLAY ' 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 collar too. PAGE 5 Z PAGE 6 Faculty ARCHIE E.

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.

HELEN BELDEN-General Messiah, Orchestra, Triple G Club PAGE U 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 meet. 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 Blair. 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 dancing. PAGE 10 ,Iiif-""'i1 i7EI'.'l' Colleixc Prep.

"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 Club. 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 their lunch. 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 representative. 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." PAGE 12 ALlSl'.7R'I' CANNON Imlustrial Coin-sc. ICUNICIEI CHANl'JLI?lt C0l'l1l'YlCl'C:fll Course.

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. 'MGE 14 LENA DAVIS College Prep.

PAGE 15 ,Gb Doctorll ls Large 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." llaskill Gill as Dr. Drinkwater, owner of the Drinkwater Sani- tarium, and Alice Newman as Glory, his granddaughter, player' their parts cleverly and were received by the audience with much enjoyment. The stad' of doctors, Dr. Cuttem, Dr. Slaughter, and Dr. Coffin, played by Douglas More. Wayne Thomas, and Norman Troxell were idiotic but entertaining. Norman Troxthelth lithp wath tho amuthing! KNOW he's got me doing it.J Three clever comedy roles as patients in the Drinkwater Sanitarium were played by Hope Day, Emily Jane Yount, and Captola Shelhamer. hope, as the plump C?J Mrs. Crossly, was a trifle ded, Emily portrayed Mrs. Weakly, a thin, homely old woman, Captola as Cynthia, Bob's cousin, was a sweet young thing just bubbling over with her love for Dr. Coffin. A high point in the operetta was the comical dance done by these three patients and the three doctors. Guy Brewer 'bout stole the show as Rainbow, the slow, stupid negro servant. Bessie, the pretty coquettish maid, was the main heartthrob of Jim, one of Phillip's men. Marjorie Hadley and Jay Ruckel played these parts as if they enjoyed them as much as the audience. And remember the Old Timel as played by Raymond Ausmus? He made a grand character role of it. Manuel, the big, bad robber, played by Harold Keller. almost rated hisses and booes when he kidnaped Bessie and Rainbow. Richard Hall as Pancho, Manuel's brother, nearly fooled us with his broken English, but he made a convincing Mexican. 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 ' 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.

PAGE 17 , 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 Sommers. 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.

PAGE 19 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 line. 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 runs. 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.

Betty Brenz won the peanut rolling contest at the Speeders party in January for the initiation of new members. The goal of every typing student, Speeders Club, was under the direction of Miss Daisy Matney, typing instructor. Require- ments for the club are that Hrst year typing students must write 40 words a minute the first semester, and 45 words a minute the second semester. Second year typing students must write 50 words a minute, and all are required to have 85 per cent accur- acy. The club meets the first, thi1'd, and fifth week of every six weeks on Tuesday evening. Officers a1'e chosen every six weeks by means of a speed test. The one making the highest score in speed plus accuracy is the president, next highest vice-president. and third highest secretary and treasurer. First six weeks officers were Merna Wright, president, Alice Lewis, vice-president, Jessie Wright, secretary and treas- urer. Second semester officers were Alice Lewis, president, Mer- na Wright, vice-president, Genevieve Wright, secretary and treasurer, Virginia Day, Ark Light reporter. '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 managers and Helen Dor1'ance and Will Etta Long were property managers. PAGE 22 li ETTY M ATT!-I EWS General- ,l'c-p Club.

Our printing department prints the college and high school annuals, the Ark Light, tickets and programs, calendars, and all record cards and office forms. 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 the work. 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.

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 defeats. 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- ive strength. 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. PAGE 26 IGDNA ltEI'lCNHAGl'lN Commercial -Triple G Club, Speeiler Cashiers Club.

PAGE 27 is 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- geson's conference. 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.

PAGE 20 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- ian. The boys glee club is headed by John Tufts, president, David Mitchell, secretary, and Truel Shaffer, librarian. John Tufts is assistant director. 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 motto.

PAGE 31 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 never refused. 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 trips". 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 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". as we all know him, for the band's success. "San" is always ready and willing to do his part in making the band something for us to be proud of. PAGE SENIORS-Now that you're almost safely graduated, it's time to look back, to smile, and wish you had another year in high school. The senior play, the "Double Door", is a drama that the class of '36 will not forget soon. Shall we ever again see Nadine Holmes, Emily Jane Yount, or Lois Ronsick in one of those stately old gowns. This year the fates smiled, our basketball team worker and, we won some exciting games-even from our arch-enemy, Winfield. We elected two queens and a king in 1935-36. Lucille Sharpe reigned over the Thanksgiving football game. Vivian Logan and Victor Bryant were crowned at the G. R.-Hi-Y Carnival. The Student Council launched the Junior Patrol on its work. Be- cause of the building of the new auditorium, traffic has been un- usually heavy about the school. Class ol '36 FORREST CRAIG-Gcl1eral Course.

These Ark Light editors don't seem to be particular about the car they use, although the sun is bothering all of them. Virginia Day and Sara Stanley, co-editors just had to sit inside. Dick Howard, buisness manager, and Emily Jane Yount, copy-editor find the running board more comfortable. Virgil Smith, advertising manager, and Duane Crill, sports editor, prefer to stand. PAGE 33 Ark Light Spreads News Cl Students And School A busy hum issues from room 114 every fifth and sixth hours. Investigation reveals that it isn't a beehive at all, but the busy journalism students laboring' to publish an Ark Light every two weeks. The instistant voice which is raised every few minutes is sure to belong to either Sara Stanley or Virginia Day, co-editors, who in their often vain attempts to get copy in on time, resort to drastic means. Buzz-z-z. The sound grows more persistant, then all is quiet. If you step into the room, probably you will find P. M. Johnson, instructor has returned. Just across the hall is a little room which contains the "morgue" and the two much-used much-in-demand typewriters Here you are sure to find the reporters lined up three deep none too patiently waiting their turn. Their "pet peeve" is the reporter who "thinks on the typewriter" and consequently is a hog. It is also in this room all advertising material and other business necessities are kept. Each reporter has his beat and must cover it thoroughly so that no important news will slip by without proper recognition. These beats include Girl Reserves, Hi-Y, Speeders, Pep Club, music, art, agriculture, and commercial departments, and various other school activities including P. T. A., the office, and the construction of the new auditorium. Members of this department entered the National Quill and Scroll Contest early in the spring: In this contest Bobby Clark, advertising solicitor, won first place in the South Central States in advertising. Richard Scott, staff reporter, received honorable mention in the current news divisiong Emily Jane Yount, copy editor, was given honorable mention for headline writing, and Duane Crill, sports editor, also got honorable mention in the sports writing contest. Nine staff members and Mr. Johnson attended the Kansas' Interscholastie Press Asociation convention in Lawrence, Novem- ber 22-23. This conference is sponsored annually by the Univers- ity of Kansas Department of Journalism. Mr. Johnson, president of the Kansas Council of Journalism Teachers for the past two years, presided over the council at this convention. Luraline Morris and Emily Jane Yount attended the National Scholastic Press convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, December 5-7. The purpose of the Quill and Scoll Society is to give recog- nition to high school journalists for outstandiylg' work. This year eleven stall' members were admitted to the Quill and Scroll. They are Virginia Day and Sara Stanley, co-editorisg Dick A. Howard, business managerg Duane Crill, sports edior: Emily Jane Yount, copy editorg Vivian Logan, art editorgVirgil Srnith, advertising managerg Virginia Holman, editor of the 1936 Mirror and Captola Shelhamer, Dorothy Heathman, and Raymond Aus- mus, reporters. Claire Edwards, Mary Holman, Norman Troxell, George Pitts, Robert Wilson, and Jack Maze were the juniors admitted as cubs at the beginning of the second semester. These students will fornrr the nucleus of the staff next year.

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 double door. 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- structor. 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."

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 Orchestra. 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. Doctor." 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.

"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 Council Representative, Alice Newman, student chairmang Rob Faulconer, publicity chairman, and Roy Worthington, finance chairman. A member of the organization is required to wear his bulldog on his sweater, be present and sit with the club at all games. drill at the half on the field, be present at the meetings, or hand in a written excuse to the secretary before the meeting if he is unable to go, and cooperate with the stunt chai1'man for pep chapels. 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.

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- ative. 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.

D. Davis, public speaking instructor, entered debates with both Kansas and Oklahoma teams this year. Victor Bryant and Everett Garner, seniors, and Howard Engle- man, a junior, had debated beforeg but this year was the first for Douglas More and Glenn Montague, two juniors completing the team. 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." LEFT TO RIGLT.

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 plan. 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 of them. More subscriptions to the Mirror were sold than ever before because the price was so much lower. The circulation of the Ark Light was almost dou- bled, and more advertising was obtained more did Ci Art Light For i935-36 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. SODl'lOlTlOl'6S '. , .' I .'.Tl.l..

V PAGE 47. Assembly programs present Qooortunities OF Expression What is high school '? What do those five hours spent in the classroom have to do with the one activity hour? We write pages and pages about Glee Clubs, rhythm classes, orchestras, and all the other clubs that meet fifth hour and hardly ment- ion English class, in which we "sit" for an hour every day. The chapel program committee in planning the 1935-36 chapels seemed to realize this situation, for they shoved their responsibilty onto the vari- ous scholarly departments in high school. Don't think that the committee was inactive, however, for Mr. San Romani and Hope Day will testify that portioning out programs and seeing that they are ready is no easy job. Early in the fall the English department spon- sored a program in connection with book week. Remember the playlet about "Books in the Woods"'? In November the Girl Reserves and Hi-y gave a Thanksgiving play and Honor Society had an in- duction service for eight new members. Bob Faulconer and Bob McClanahan, as two street cleaners, advertised the public speaking play, too, in a special assembly. Along in January, the school heard from the band, who played "The Death of Custer," causing no little excitement when they imitated a band on horseback by bouncing in the chairs as they play- ed. Prin. E. A. Funk told of the work of the State Board of Control. The history department "took things over" Kansas day with the aid of the band twirlers who were the principals in a flag ceremony. There were talks and reading by students and visitors. The junior college contributed its bit to the to All l-ligh School Groups assembly program when Harrv Skornia, French and German instructor, talked of his travels in Europe. The juco chorus class was aiso responsi- ble for a chapel. George Reynolds played a piano solo, Nina Maurine Davis sang a solo, and Lillian Clough took a solo part in one of the chorus num- bers. Remember? In February, Oscar Renn, well known lawyer of Arkansas City, helped us celebrate Lincoln's birthday . It was sometime in the spring when the science department, with the aid of J. Kelsey Day, presented a chemistry demonstration, Jay Ruckel , Ruth Ruckel, and Albert Lambert dem- onstrated something new in trios with their flute, clarinet and oboe number. Remember "Safety Week"? It was that Thurs- day that the handsome highway patrol commis- sioner talked on safety. Who can forget R. A. Melville. sponsored by the Burford theater, who was firmly convinced that the structure ot' our whole civilization rested on glass. After the National Educational Association met in St. Louis, Snpt. C. E. St. John related some of his experiences there to the student body. There were picture shows in chapel, too-or should I say visual education? "The Hero", a pic- ture made last summer under the direction of J. D. Davis, was shown in a pay chapel. The bene- fits went into a fund to make motion pictures of school events. Mr. Barnard cooperated with the Spanish department in showing pictures he took while in Mexico. Now-what's left out? These chapcls that we "slept through" or 'ichattered through" or merely "sat through"-how vividly they cling in our memories.

PAGE 49 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 quite reach. 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 the halls.

PAGE 51 Pier A C AT WCDIQK The newly chosen members of Quill and Scroll seem only too happy to pose for 21 snapshot. It's a wonder the cub that snap- ped this didn't die of shock. Imagne finding the editors all smiling sweetly at him! Ho must have been steadied by the dignified countenance of P. M. Johnson. Take a long look for such a smiling group of reporters is rare. It must have taken courage to corner these debaters. However Doug More is the only one that looks dangerous. Engleman couldn't even stop talking long enough to have his picture taken. Bryant and Mon- tague seem to enjoy being in the public eye, but J. D. Davis has the winning smile. fToothpaste manufacturers take note.J Dcesn't Garner look demure? This unique snapshot shows one stage of the progress in building the new auditorium- gymnasium. The construction of the project has been closely watched by the students and in a few months they will witness its completion. These piles of lumber and brick will soon be transformcd into a magnificent structure. Aren't they fat little rascals? Oh, not the Future Farmers, silly! The pigs. The one with the white legs is the cutest. Of course, they all have white legs, but this one has a screw tail. By the way, that background was furnished by the accommodating boys of the F. F. A. as they stood hack and proudly surveyed their wards. That must be T. C. Faris with the white shirt. PAGE 52 1 7 . 1 1 1 1 ,- " " 4 . 'f ' ,. i -Y-N.. I-A: . .

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. ,41- 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. PAGE 53 The Peo Club and Athletic Teams Combine To Create Good Sport and Fair Competition At the top of the opposite page is a picture of the Arkansas City high school pep club. This year's club was unusually attractive as compared to other years, as you can see for yourselves. The personnel areg back row, left to right, David Benjamin, Kenneth Messner, Walter Ellis, Charles Warren, Edith Davis-sponsor, Ross Conrad, Ruth Curfman-sponsor, Eugene Kreider, Charles Al- lard, Albert Lambert, Jack Horton, Hal Light- stone, and Wayne Thomas. Fifth row, Jack Hurst, Jack Williams, Jayne Krammes, Minerva Quinn, Dorothy Heathnian, Ruby Counts, Sara Stanley, Betty Mathews, Marg- aret Dixon, Jack Campbell, Martin Myers, and Raymond Billings. Fourth rowg Kelsey Day-sponsor, Duane Grill, Hope Day, Margaret Jean Ogren, Jerry Christy, Margaret Pickett, Helen lleard, David Mitchell, Dick Howard, Gail Harden, Earl Ruff, and Glen Montague. Third row: Betty Allen, Milton Getter, Marjorie Crill, Sarah Marie Hellyer, Arlinc Case, and Joyce Hamm. Second row, Maxine Douglams, Virgfnia Brown, Kathryn Gibson, Elizabeth Lewis, Esther Shoup, Bette Hamilton, Mary Pickett, Mary Henderson, Dorothy Markland, Roy Worthington, Robert Wilson, and Bruce Reid. Front row, Isabell Cannon, Mary Tinsley, Pauline Turner, Dorothy lvlc-Nair, Helen Dorrance, Betty Brenz, Voncile Mitchell, Virginia Day, Alice Newman, Robert Clark, Robert Faulconer, Stanley Sitaufter. Pictured at the center on the opposite page are the Ark Valley basketball champions for the 1935-36 season- the Arkansas City high school Bulldogs. 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 recognition. 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- point margin. 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 fall. 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 gone. The boys are shown in this picture on Thanks- giving day just before their encounter with Well- ington, which they lost G-0. PAGE 5-I Standing, left to right are Edwin Maier, end. James Tully, fullback, George Pitts, halfback, Robert Wilson, quarterback, Marvin Shackleford, guard, George Shunatcna, fullback, Alfred How- ard, halfback, Kenneth Steele, halfhack, and Louis Abernathy, quarterback. Second row, left to right, Paul Quinn, end, George Griffith, tackle, Thomas Ashburn, guard, Dale Hines, center, Aldo Orin, guard, Cole Daily, tackle, Joe Stafford, end, and Coach Everett Nich- olson. Front row, left to right, Louis Johns, tackle, Verne Stacy, end, Albert Baber, guard, and Dallas Wilhelm, end. 1 A Q 4 -I - ,9Tff"f' PAGE ss C O I! f If F If V. 5 yjrlf!fLJ'-jf, Wlijg ifL,.iT,l d..,.7!
