The official open- ing of this building was on the night of the Arkalalah when Miss Sara Stanley was crowned Queen Alalah IX. The regional tournaments were held in Ar- kansas City for the first time due to the increased gymnasium room. Many other activities which were not possible before have been held this year due to the enlarged gymnasium space. The gym classes have had opportunities to enlarge their courses due to the modernized equip- ment. All of the girls have had a chance to become acquainted with, basketball, as there atc 'three times as many basketball goals as in the former Hcrackerboxn gym. ' 1 Gp V 1 3?

ADMINISTRATION Supt. C. E. St. John, though not intimately known to the students, as the teachers are, is e ually wen liked. He is a1waYS Cheerful and sgems to enjoy his contacts with students and teachers. Mr. St. John is a graduate of Emporia State Teachers College and has also attended - ll Ottawa University and State Teachers Co ege. Prin. E. A, Funk is liked by all students that he comes in contact with. He is willing and helpful to students in distress. Mr. Funk has an A. B. de- issouri State Teachers College, Kirksville and the Master's degree of Science from University of Kansas. gree from the M E. A. FUNK Dr. L. E. BRENZ DEAN TRUEBLOOD C. G. HOLMSTEIN Dr. L. M. BEATSON Dr. R. L. FERGUSON Dr. R. C. YOUNG Dr. L. E. Brenz presides over the present Board of Education which has a total membership of eight men. Besides Dr. Brenz Other members are C. G. Holmsten, vice presidentg Dean Truebloodg Dr. R. L. Fergusong Dr. R. Claude Young, and Dr. L. M. Beatson. Drs. Brenz and Beatson have announced plans to retire this year. The board of 36-37 supervised the new audi- torium-Gymnasium, biggest school project since the high school building was built in 1918. Miss Eleanor Ambrose, secretary to Prin. E.A. Funk, takes care of all the high school office , routine. Office work for the city schools is under l the care of Miss Lillian Adams, secretary to Supt. C. E. St. John. MRS. L. ADAMS E. AMBROSE Apple Eaters . .. Arkansas City senior high school has a total of twenty-eight teachers and every one of them is exceptional in wil- lingness to help and ability to join in the student activities. One of the first persons we think of in connection with helpfulness is Miss Alice Carrow who has charge of the high school library. Miss Carrow has been librarian in A. C. for some time and she is always remembered by the former graduates. Miss Olive M. Ramage is a graduate of the Ottawa University, and she has an A. B. degree. She teaches World His- tory to sophmores and juniors. Allen E. Maag and Amos Curry teach History and Constitution and Problems. These teach- ers are all very well liked by their pu- pils. Teachers of Biology are Lewis Cooley, and Herschel Clark. They are both new teachers in A. C. H. S. but rapidly are gaining popularity. Kelsey Day is also a teacher of Biology, but he spends part of his day teaching Chemistry to am- bitious minded juniors and seniors. Mr. Day is a favorite among the students and he is sponsor of the Pep Club. We have two Davis' in A. C. H. S. One is Miss Edith Davis and the other is Mr. J. D. Davis. Miss Davis is the Physical Education and Physiology teacher. Mr. Davis teaches Public Speak- ing and English. He also is the director of all plays the senior high produces. This includes the Public Speaking Play and the Senior Play. Miss Henrietta Courtright, a new comer to our high school, is now teach- ing Mathematics. She is very dignified and is liked very much by students who know her. E. H. Piper, also teacher of Mathematics, has been here for many years. He is the sponsor of the Hi-Y and he keeps that organization up in top style and with modern ideas. The study hall is under the reign of Mrs. Daisy Hamit. Mrs. Hamit tries to keep the students in study hall quiet and industrious. She usually succeeds or the unruly person finds himself in the office gazing ruefully at the clock. Miss Esther Denton is the Home Eco- nomics teacher. She teaches home-minded girls to sew and cook. Girls who have the experience of being taught by Miss Dent- on usually can be told by their neatness and efficiency. Mr. T. C. Faris is the instructor in Agriculture. His boy students are consid- ered some of the best F.F.A. members in the state. They come home with many prizes on animal judging and other types of Argicultural activities. F. D. Modlin in the Printing Depart- ment is making a name for himself and his printing students through his e- fficient and thorough work. The Ark Light and lvlirror have few typographical errors compared to other high school pa- pers that come from schools which boast their own high school presses. Beryl Harbaugh, Spanish teacher, is one of the prettiest teachers in the school She is sweet and kind to all her pupils and is one of the favorites with students. She teaches bookkeeping. The students in way, thus helping her students to under- stand a difficult subject. Charles L. Hinchee supervises the vo- cal music of senior and junior high. He directs the Messiah, the biggest musical project given in Ark City every year, and the annual operetta. He teaches Glee Club and Chorus. Mr. Hinchee under- stands the difficulties of students and helps them in their troubles. The Physics teacher is one of the most faithful ttachers of A. C. H. S. She has taught Physics here for many years and we hope she will teach for many more. Of course, you all know we are talking about Miss Gaye Iden, one of the nicest teach- ers we can know about in senior high. Miss Wilma Imes is spending her se- cond year in Arkansas City senior high. She teaches bookkeeping. The students in high school all appreciate her interest PAGE 9 A k sas City High School is indeed fortunate 'in the hi h siaghrdards of its faculty- Each teacher ls prominent m S' . many other subjects besides the one in which he teaches- The teachers, On the average, 319 Ymlthful men and Women' Old enough to have become adept at teaching and Yet YO'-mg enough to be able to understand the problems of the students and sympathize with them.

MAAG History The atmosphere of the school, one of cheerful performance of duties erssignerl, is due to the personality of the faculty body. Each teacher is earnestly doing his best to make his particular subject interesting to his pupils as well useful. The students try to show their appreciation by doinjf work assigned in the best manner possible and this attitude aids the teachers. They know that they are liked and re- spected by all. PAGE I0 PAGE 11 rAc:15 Apple Eaters . . . and helpfulness in teaching her subject. Miss Inez Johnson teaches senior Eng- lish. To be in her class is like being in a friendly group all conversing on a subject they all intensely admire. Miss Johnson never misses speaking to a student whom she meets in the hall. Paul Johnson, journalism instructor and economics and sociology teacher, sup- ervises the publishing of the Ark Light and Mirror. He likes his subjectg there- fore, he teaches it in an interesting way. Mr. Johnson has the thanks of all journa- lism students for help in difficulties. Typing is a pleasure when Miss Daisy Matney is teaching. Miss Matney teaches Commerce and she is another one of our new teachers. She came to Arkansas City to teach last year and made a success in everything she attempted. Miss Matney is sponsor of the publicity committee of the Girl Reserves. We all know Miss Lillie Nemecheck by her brisk manner and surprising en- ergy. She teaches English to sophomores and juniors and used to be an extremely adept Geometry and Algebra teacher. Miss Nemecheck is also a sponsor of one of the various committees of the Girl Reserves. The girls might not know Everett Nicholson personally, but they all like him from listening to his many speeches made in chapel during the football and basketball season. The boys all know him ard regard him as one of their favorite teachers. He puts Ark City's teams over in both football and basketball. This year the A. C. Bulldogs were one of the best teams at the state tournament. Latin is taught by Miss Helen Silver- wood. Miss Silverwood makes Latin a living instead of dead language. She tea- ches all three years of Latin in senior high and helps the students to learn more easily a rather hard subject. She rates as one of the best-liked teachers. W. A. Sneller's name is connected with Industrial Arts. His students, mostly 12 boys, learn quickly how to design a house and build one, besides learning to do many smaller things. To Mr. Sneller an inch can be a mile. Although he is not so well known among the students he is very well liked. History and Commerce are both taught by Merle K. Snyder. Mr. Snyder came to teach in Ark City for the first time this year. Salesmanship is one of Mr. Snyflerls subjects and most of the students he turns out after having spent a semester in his class can sell anything fwell mosh anythingl. We have two teachers of English, one for the sophomores and one for the jun- iors. Miss Virginia Weisgerber is teacher to the sophomores and her sweet manner helps confused and wondering little soph- omores get through a year of hardship and worry. Sophomores finish their first year in senior high feeling grateful to Miss Weisgerber and seniors remember her long after they have graduated. The other teacher of English is Miss Edna L. Wheatley. Miss Wheatley is English teacher to the juniors and what they don't know about synonyms and oth- er English matters isn't worth mention- ing. Every student Who takes from Miss Wheatley is so much wiser at the end of the year than he was at the beginning that he feels entitled to be called a sen- ior. Archie San Romani is in charge of the band and orchestra. The band under his supervision plays at all high school ac- tivities and some junior college activities. The orchestra gave concerts for the first time this spring and through the work of Mr. San Romani they were successes. The seniors in the class of 1987 wish to express their gratitude to a gtoup of the best teachers any high school ever provided. They are cooperative, friendly, and always willing to help a student. Their friendliness gives a welcome and makes every student feel that he is work- ing with his teacher, rather than under him. iff! N lllf 2 j - - X G 'lf li . Il 1 nl, .Qi 1' .425-. Class of '37 PAGE JACK HALL MARY PICKETT President Secretary The senior council, an or- ganization of seniors of marked leadership and schol- astic ability, accomplished a good deal for their class of 1937. The members of the council, Robert Gillock, Rob- eit Balsters, Alan Jacobson, Glenn Montague, Jack Hall, Bette Hamilton, Mary Pick- ett, Kathryn Curfman, and Evelyn Broderson, served as a comrnitte to select the an- nouncements and class jewel- ry. The senior sponsors, A.E. Maag, Beryl Harbaugh, J.D. Davis, Gaye Iden, Helen Sil- verwood, and Inez Johngon, forgot their positions as tea- chers and mentors and enter- ed into the senior meetings with the feeling that they, too, were working for the good of the class as a whole. A.E. Maag served as Mir- ror sponsor and J.D. Davis produced the senior play which was a marked success. Miss Harbaugh took charge of the class jewelry and showed excellent taste in her choice. Helen Silverwood is sponsor of the senior picnic and is Girl Reserve sponsor. PAGE 14 Jack Hall was president of the senior class of 1937. He was a very competent leader as was pi oved when he was reelected after his successful term as president of the class in his junior year. Mary Catherine Pickett is the secretary of this class.

This year as seniors they have set a worthy pace for the underclassmen to follow. They are willing cooperators and worthy leaders. The ultimatum they set and reached was to make the class of '37 known as one of the peppiest, if not the very peppiest, senior classes ever to attend A. C. H. S., and they became the backbone of the school. They have supported the school's activities to their utmost. They determined to make the school proud to have them.

MARJORIE HADLEY GILBERT HADLEY After each year a few gaps were found in their ranks, but always the best ye- turned. Now the seniors leave the school and its duties to the classes which are behind them and go forth in the world to conquer new fields. Some will continue their education at college, others will immediately step into their places in life, but whatever they do, they will be doing the best they can.

The purpose of this organization is to rep- resent the interests of the entire student body and the faculty of the school in order that there will be a closer co- operation between the students and the faculty. The membership consists of a presi- dent, elected by the student body in the fall, the principal of the high school, two faculty members, and one represent- ative from each of the three classes, from each conference group, and from the Girl Reserves, Hi-Y, Honor Society, Cashiers' Cub, Sport Light Club, Pep Club, Ark Light, Mirror, and the Junior Patrol. The duties of the Student Council are to elect the head cheer leader and the first and second assistants, members of the junior patrol, student representative to the Athletic Board, and the assembly program committee. John Shea was elect- ed head cheer leader with Minerva Quinn, first assistant, and Lula Mae Haines, second assistant. Keith Curfman Cashiers' Club PAGE The Cashiers Club is one of the im- portant organizations of the school. Very few people hear about or recognize the results that are produced by this club. The club meets every Monday in the high school library under the direction of Miss Alice Carrow, librarian. The club membership is made up of the head cashier, assistant cashier and the conference cashiers and their assis- tants. The conference cashiers are elected at the first of the year by their confer- ences. They hold their offices for the entire year, unless for some reason it seems advisable to select another. The of the assistant cashier is elected out junior class at the beginning of the second semester by the members of the club. His duty is to head the cashiers the following year. The object of the club is to promote thrift 44 while in school. Then as an indi- was chosen as student repre:entative to the Athletic Board.

The Student Council received an in- vitation from the Student Council of Ok- lahoma to send representatives to attend its meeting in Ponca City. Delegates from high schools in Oklahoma ard the surrounding states met to discuss meth- ods of student goverments to gain new ideas which they could apply on their own councils. Glen Montague, Bette Ham- ilton, and Miss Edna Wheatley attended the meeting. The oHicers of the Student Council are Lawrence Pipkin, president, John Tufts, president pro-tem, and Marjo ie Crill, secretary-treasurer. The president pro-tem and secretary-treasurer are e- lected by the council from its member- ship.

Banking con- tests among the conferences are a popu- lar method used to encourage banking. Rather than improving since the years of depression, the bank'ng percentage has been lowered. Perhaps one factor that brought this about has been the activity ticket, introduced this year. Many students have considered the activity ticket as one form of savings and have put their money ino this rather than in the school savings ac- count. Mrs. Harriet Winkleman, representa- tive of Thrift, Incorporated, following her visit to Arkansas City Schools made this statement: "This is one of the best high schools for banking work in the U. S. A." This is a record that every stud- ent should be proud of and should help maintain.

And writing their own basketball press Men of the Pressv The Pica Club is an honorary organi- zation for high school printers. This so-- ciety holds meetings twice a month in the printing room, located in the junior high building. At these meetings subjects re- lated to some phase of printing are dis- cussed. Eligibility to this club is dependent up- on the studentls ability, as only those making a B or above may become mem- bers. Two of the major activities of this or- ganization are the Pica Printing banquet. The Pica is a four page paper printed and edited by the .printing department.

Last year the Ark Light and Mirror were both sold for one dollar, but this year they cost about nine cents each. The activity ticket provided the money for the annual, but the Mirror staff pro- vided the material. The interesting and amusing snapshots were taken by Jack Stover and Dick Curtis. Charles Darby and Ted Miller have spent the wee hours of the morning pasting pictures in the Mirror and the mirror staff wrote reams and reams. Gladys-.Hopkins tried to keep the fi- nancial end' of the annual correct but she has almost as difficult a time as Claire Edwards, editor, had getting her notices presented no obstacles to Bob Wilson, sports editor, and Howard Engle- man, sports writer. Bob "dribbled" in the copy and Howard nonchalantly tossed it in the basket.

It was a success- ful production, well given and well recei- ved. The plot of the story centers around old Mr. Minick, played by Douglas More. He comes to live with his son and daugh- ter-in-law who have been married about three years. Kathryn Curfman plays the part of Nettie, the daughter-in-law, with Jack Campbell taking the part of Fred, the son. Lil and Jim Corey, portrayed by Kath- leen Pfisterer and Norman Troxell, are the young Minicks' closest friends. With- out their wives knowing it the two young men have entered into partnership in a mail order company. Old man Minick discovers this and tells Nettie and Lil, who are enraged at the idea. The same aftenoon Nettie has her club at her home. Mr. Minick breaks up the meeting by unsuspectingly insulting the club members. Ruby Beebe, Peggi Ogren, Doris Treadway, and Evelyn Broderson play the parts of Mrs. Smallridge, Miss Stack, Miss Crackenwald, and Mrs. Lip- pincott, respectively. This act infuriates Nettie to the boiling "Ta lee My Adviceh "Take My Advice," this year's public speaking play was a rollicking three act comedy. The plot centered around the troubles of the Weaver family. Martin Myers and Kathryn Curfman had the roles of the brother and sister, Bud and Ann Weaver. Bud has quit col- lege to marry Marella Scott, the town vamp, played by Bette Brenz. Ann has been led to believe she has great dram- atic ability by Kerry Van Kind, a ham actor and phoney theatrical agent, pro- trayed by Bruce Edwards. Mr. and Mrs. Weaver, the harrassed parents, were very well done by Roy Worthington and Jayne Krammes. Mr. Weaver has a weakness for fake stock salesmen. He has never been able to get rid of them without first buying their phoney stock. Mrs. Weaver's latest brain storm in unmerology. She is PAGE 48 point. In the evening when Fred comes home there is a quarrel during which Nettie threatens to divorce her husband. Mr. Minick settles the situation by offer- ing to leave and stay in the Old Men's Home where he has two cronies, Mr. Deitenhoffer and Mr. Price, played by Joseph Olinger and Carrol Shupe. The young people then make up and beg him to stay. Everything runs smoothly for va while until Mr. Minick overhears Nettie' tell Lil as long as he is with them, she and Fred will never have children. Mr. Min- ick, who wishes to have a grandchild de- termines to not stand in the way. He packs his clothes and departs for the Old Men's Home . Annie the maid, whose part is taken by Claire Edwards, asks him what message she is to give "the missus" he says t'Tell her to call me Grandpa." Marjorie Hadley and Roy Worthington help furnish the comedy of the play, por- traying the parts of Marge and Al Dia- mond, a couple in the young Minicks' crowd who are continally on the go. The business managers of the play were Glen Montague and Robert Wilson. Marjorie Crill and Sarah Hellyer were the property managers. .. always finding corresponding numbers. Bradley Clement, Bud's English profes- sor at college, comes to the Weaver home to try to straighten out Bud's troubles. Instead, he helps the whole family out of a colossal mess: Professor Clement is played by Joe Foster. He proves to Bud that Marella is only a clever Hirt who has methods to her madness. She has been working with Jim- my Thayer, played by Ted Miller, to take all the men in town to a cleaning with their oil stocks. Mr. Weaver is then cured of his mania for salesmen and Mrs. Wea- ver promises to be through with numer- ology forever. Professor Clement also proves to Ann that her place is in his home and not on a New York stage. w i Mellerdrammers "Min iclgf' Lil Corey .,,r,,.,, Nettie Minick ...,., .-.W Annie , .,,, H ,,Y,, J im Corey ...., Fred Minick ......

The business procedure of the Pep Club was carried on in the meetings held every Thursday after school in the Study Hall. During these meetings the desired ends were usually accomplished and a certain amount of humor also en- tered in, such as John Shea, head cheer- leader, remarking,"I don't like to see vacancies marching down the street when we drill." Mary Fountain, bright little sopho- more, confided to the entire group,"These Pep Club announcements simply slip my mind." VVhen a sympathetic admirer asked,"What mind'?", Mary concluded that it would be simpler to keep quiet. Financial success of the Pep Club was aided by the activites of the refreshment Debate Debate activities for this year started when J. D. Davis, director of forensics, made a call for debators early in the fall. Debate this year was scheduled for the first semester as a regular one-half credit subject. The boys who took de- bate the first semester were Richard Curtis, Bob Lindemood, Kenneth Patter- son, Ernest Grose, Joe Foster, Martin Myers, Bruce Edwards, Ted Miller, Jack Hall, Douglas More, and Glen Montague. The outlook for a successful season seemed exceedingly good with three ex- perienced seniors on the team. On Decem- ber 11 and 12 a debate institute was held in Arkansas City High School. Fifty towns and over 300 debators visited Arkansas City during the meet. The first tournament of the year was held at Colfeyville. At this meet, Joe Foster and Glen Montague ranked second only to Coffeyville. All the sophomores and juniors were taken on this trip and participated in practice rounds. The second tourney was held at Em- poria. Bruce Edwards and Martin Myers PAGE so stand which was in charge of Jack Camp- bell, finance chairman.

Oklahoma City, where the largest debate tourna- ments for high schools in the U. S. are held, then drew the teams attention. Out of 208 teams, Ark City represented by Ted Miller, Douglas More, Jack Hall, and Glen Montague captured s ec ond place. Newton won the final debate on a close decision. The next week-end the same boys dup- licated their performance and won second at the Ark Valley meet at the University of Wichita. At the district tourney at Winfield, the following week the team again carried off runner-up honors. J. D. Davis received from the state forensics committee an invitation to the state tournament at Lawrence on Feb. 26. The team was invited on its outstanding record of many consistent wins. At the state meet, the boys downed Topeka, defending champs, but were eleminated before the semi-finals of the tourney by the strong Hutchinson team. , Winciiammersl TOP PANEL FIRST ROW, left to rightfVernon Overstreet, Bill Blood, Martin Myers, Wayne Thomas, Craig: Howes, Peggi Ogren, Warren Thomas, Joe Norman, Betty Webber, Billy La Sarnre, Clarence Ford.

This was the theme of the Girl Reserves for the school year 1936 -1937. With happy hearts and high ideals they sailed their ship of dreams into the harbors of helpfulness. The officers' role included Evelyn Brod- erson, president, Iris Tyler, vice presi- dentg Kathleen Pfisterer, secretary, Bet- ty Selan, treasurer, and Kathryn Curf- man, student council representative. The club's business was carried on through the committee plan. The heads of the various committees were Social, Peggi Ogreng Membership, Iris Tyler, Finance, Mary Noleng Music, Marjorie Hadley, Publicity, -Dorothy Peterson, Program, Ruby Beebeg Athletic, Clara Nunleyg and Service, Dorotha Burnett.

This was followed I-li-Y The Hi-Y club of Arkansas City High School experienced a very successful year during 1936-37, The first three meetings were open and were held for the purpose of acquainting the boys with the func- tions and purpose of the organization which is "To create, maintain, and ex- tend throughout the school and commun- ity high standards of Christian charac- ter. When the time came for the install- ation of new members more than sixty boys had signed and paid their dues. An installation service led by the head spon- sor, E. Hoyt Piper, was held in the Y. M.C.A. in early November, The club meets every other week on Tuesday noon at the local Y.M.C.A. A banquet was held in connection with the meeting. The price of dinner tickets has been 25 cents for the past three years. This affords a convenient time and place for meetings which seldom con- fiict with other activties. The sponsoring of the lyceum courses and the sponsorship of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter chapels have been by a Recognition Service in the form of a mother and daughter tea. The good ship' docked again to take the Little Sisters on board for their annual Christmas par- ty. A mother and daughter banquet and installation service was held in the spring. The crew was in charge of the Thanks- giving and Chistmas Day chapels and they were handled in a truly shipshape manner. Eight girls were sent to the winter con- ference at Herrington where they had an enjoyable time and returned with many helpful ideas for G.R. work. The good ship sailed into port at the end of the school year with a convic- tion in the hearts of all that they had achieved their ideals and accomplished their purpose as expressed in the theme: "Let every happy harbor That opens to the sea Be a perfect inspiration To G. R. loyalty." a few duties of the club for the past year. In addition to this, the club won fame last summer when they won first place in the State Boys' Softball tournament which was held at Emporia. Officers for the year who were elec- ted last spring are Howard Engleman, president, Wayne Thomas, vice-presi- dentg Robert Clough, secetaryg Russel Leach, treasurer, and John Warren, stu- dent council representative. --Additional members of the cabinet, the legislative body of the organization, are Keith Curf- man, Martin Myers, Jack Williams, Cleve Holland, Robert Clack, Norman Burton, and John Leach. The annual state Hi-Y conference was held at Salina, Kansas this year, nine boys and two sponsors made the trip. Howard Engleman was elected vice-president of the conference to mark the second straight year that an Ark City delegate has received such an honor.

The most outstanding work of the stu- dent in three different fields of journal- istic writing is sent in to the National Quill and Scroll offices for appr0Val, with the recommendation of the journalism advisor, Paul M. Johnson. Members re- ceive a gold pin bearing the insignia of the society, the quill and scroll, and a years subscription to the Quill and Scroll magazine. The Quill and Scroll Society was found- ed at the University of Iowa in 1926 by a group of teachers who wished to rec- ognize and reward the worthy attempts of high school journalists. The local chap- ter was granted a charter in 1929. To be eligible for a charter, the high school must publish a newspaper, an an- nual, or a magazine which is considered to be of sufficient merit by the national ' executive council. "Messiah " Handel's "Messiah,' was presented December 15, for the fifth consecutive year under the direction of Charles'L. Hinchee, vocal director, and A. E. San Romani, instrumental instructor, in the new auditorium. This oratorio is part of the year's work for high school and junior college music departments. The chorus was made up of approxi- mately 400 high school and junior col- lege students who are interested in vo- cal work, one of the largest groups ever to have participated in such an e- vent. All the choral numbers were ex- ceptionally well done. Guest soloists who took part in the performance were Miss Florence Goble, soprano soloist from Lindsborgg Miss Molly Vang, contralto soloist of Linds- borgg and Charles W. Shedden, of Ellis, who sang the bass solos. Charles L. Hinchee, co-director of the "Messiah". sang the tenor arias this year, as has been his practice in past productions of "The Messiah". The orchestra for 'tThe Messiah" was made up of fifty members, one of the largest orchestras to be used on the ac- To be eligible for membership, the student must be in the upper third of the class, must have done distinctive work in some field of newspaper writing must have been recommended by the journalism supervisor, and must be ap- proved by the secretary of the national organization. The society sponsors contests in all the different fields of creative work, and promotes research work and surveys to standardize high school newspaper writ- ing. The society has the support of Amer- ica's outstanding journalists and educat- ors. Representatives of the Arkansas City high school, Mary Holman, Robert Gil- lock, Gilbert Brewer, Robert Wilson, Mary Nolen, Gladys Hopkins, Ione Hughes, Glen Montague, Dorothy Nodler, John Warren, Claire Edwards, and Kath- leen Pfisterer, were admitted to the so- ciety this year for their attempts on our high school publication, The Ark Light. companiments. It furnished a rnelodious background and accompaniment for the arias and chorus numbers. Mrs. A. E. San Romani played the piano accompaniments for the solos and Genevieve Wright accompanied the chor- us numbers. In previous years "The Messiah" has been presented for two nights and ad- mission was by ticket only, but due to the size of the new auditorium the oratorio was presented only one night this year. The public was invited and there were no admission tickets. The oratorio brings the message of Christ's birth, His works, and His death in such a way as to impress both on the minds of the audience and the singers, Christ's sacrifice and His divinity. All participants worked together with co-operation and harmony to produce one of the finest presentations of "The Mes- siah" yet given. "The Messiahu fulfills a two fold pu1'- pose. It is a Christian gift from the music department to the public and it offers an opportunity for the students to become acquainted with the works of the old masters inthe field of music. .ffl .7.,?:- lil' A. C. on the Air -SLS?" , Nye 'TE IAGI 56 PAGE 57 Q25 CDrchestra The Senior Orchestra, under the direc- tion of Archie E. San Romani, has made rapid development in recent years. From a small group of musicians it has grown into a well-trained orchestra of eighty- five pieces, comparable to any high school orchestra in the state. This advancement is largely due to the untiring ambition and zealous efforts of the director. Mr. San Romani works con- tinuously with the betterment of the or- chestra always in mind. When the music department presented "The Messiah" on December 15 as an annual project, the special orchestra did its part to make the oratorio a success. ,A concert was given on February 28 in the auditorium by the entire orchestra. No admission was charged and a large crowd of townspeople came to hear and see the display of local talent. The high school-junior college operetta, "The Gon- doliers," given March 24, also received the cooperation of the special orchestra. Special music was provided for the school plays. Band Pep is what any good high school wants and needs. The band, under the direction of A. E. San Romani, has done much to create pep and enthusiasm at all the football and basketball games. This organization together with the pep club presented stunts at the half-time intermissions to create enthusiasm and keep the enthusiasm of the student body aflame. The band made several good-will tours to surrounding cities. It was a guest band at the Cowley County fair at Win- field, the Chatauqua County fair, and the South Haven fair. It also took part in the annual Arkalalah parade in Ar- kanas City. During the regional basketball tourn- ament the band paraded with banners advertising it. The organization also played at all games during the tourna- ment which helped to make it a success. The band had an extra feature this year. It gave free concerts in the new auditorium every other month alternat- ing with the high school orchestra. Perhaps no organization in high school that performs such indispensible services is as little known as the orchestra. Play- ing for the Messiah, Arkalalah corona- tion, operetta and special concerts are only part of the responsibilities assumed by this organization. The Senior Orchestra, composed en- tirely of students, meets during third hour on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fri- days in the band room at the north end of the new auditorium. Here is "San's" domain and here begins the practice and preparation which finally blossoms forth as the finished product of which the school can well be proud. Members of the special orchestra, which plays for most of the school func- tions where music is desired, are chosen for their personal ability and industry. This method encourages individual efort and ambition on the part of the pupils and introduces the element of compe- tition with the consequent improvement of the organization. The organization has regulation band uniforms with black ties and shoes. The capes and hats are the school colors, the purple and gold. E. A. San Romani has developed the band into one of the best in the state. The bright uniforms and snappy drills present an interesting sight wherever the band performs. "Our San", as the students call him, deserves the credit for making the band what it is, for he has spent much of his time working with it. ' The band has a total of '75 members. The officersiare William Guthrie, presi- dent and assistant directorg Gwendolyn Grow. secretary, and Gilbert Dillon, busi- ness manager. Twirlers are Keith Cum- mins, Ernestine Bigley, Marcalee Ferger- son, Doris Force, and Dorothy Maple. Betty Anne Gericke is head drum major. The band has a regulation staff of color escorts and color bearers. Betty Allen is color sergeant. Glenda Harris carries the school flag with Helen Mingle and Bette Kimsey as escorts.

The responsibility for the production of this immense project was assumed by Charles L. Hinchee, who is vocal instructor of high school and college. "The Gondoliers", also known as "The King of Barataria", was chosen as the project. The story of the operetta was laid in Venice in 1750 on the mythical island of Barataria. The first act opened with a chorus scene of peasant girls and gondoliers. According to the custom a marriage festival was held every year at which time two gondoliers were blind- folded and, at a given signal, rushed out and touched two girls whom they were supposed to marry. In accordance with this custom Gian- etta and Tessa married Marco and Giuseppe. All went well until the Duke of Plaza-Tora announced that his daugh- ter, Casilda, was married at the tender age of two and a half to the young King of Barataria, and in light of the fact that the young king was lost and could not be found, it would be best for her not to carry on her love affair with Luiz, the King's attendant. Don Alhambra de Bolero, the Grand Inquisitor, informed Marco and Guiseppe that one of them was probably the lost king. Enthused by the possibility of be- ing of royal blood, Marco and Guiseppe left their newly acquired wives and sailed for the island of Barataria. The second act found the two resplen- dent in court attire and sitting upon the throne. All of the mystery and entangle- ment was revealed when Inez, Luiz's foster mother, discloses the fact that Luiz was the lost king and was married to Casilda. Marco, Guiseppe, Tessa, and Gianetta were all reunited and events were brought to a happy ending. Bobby Clark was simply a wow as the Spanish gandee and at times seemed to control the entire interests of the audi- ence. The part of his high-toned wife was played competently by Veda Mills. Winifred Barker and Nina Davis, as the romantic pair, Luiz and Casilda, turned out a splendid performance. No one who attended can ever forget John Tufts and Albert Lambert, the merry gondoliers, Marco and Guiseppe. Captola Shelhamer and Margaret Seal, as their strangely acquired wives, also deserve special men- tion. Harold Keller simply bowled them over in his part as the Grand Inquisitor. Others who had leading parts were Rob- ert Ramsey as Annibaleg Henry Bum- gardner, Francescog Joe Sweely, Gior- giag Wayne Thomas, Ottaviog Alice Wil- son, Fiamettag Bonnie Jean Smith, Vit- toriag and Evelynne Caine, Guilia. A chorus of approximately 80 mem- bers was chosen from the various glee clubs and a troupe of 14 dancers was chosen from the girls' gym classes. The special orchestra was also called into service. The success of "The Gondoliers" was the result of the cooperation of practic- ally every department in school. Those who deserve special mention are Miss Vera Koontz of the art department, which provided scenic effects, W. A. Sneller for stage carpentry, A. E. San Romani who trained the orchestrag and Miss Edith Davis, who had charge of the training of the dancers. Keith Curfman, as business manager, George Pitts, as advertising manager, and Kathleen Pfisterer, as publicity director, did their part in making the operetta a financial success. The stage manager, Aldo Orin, and his assistants, Junior Miller and Louis Johns were also extremely capable in the production. Property managers were Martha Beek- man and Roberta Bowen. The costumes used represented Italian garments of the middle eighteenth cen- tury. The brilliant colors and the splen- did lighting effects cooperated with the appropriate scenery in creating a luxur- ious setting which contributed appreci- ably to the beauty of the operetta. si-S Kv-Vg Il 6 d I' H e on O lers The Duke of Plaza-Toro ta Grandee of Spain! ....

In the first encounter of the year the Bulldog gridsters tied a strong Harper team on the latter's field. Straight foot- ball was played throughout the game.

Front row, left to rightfCoach E' tt '1 The ElDorado Wildcats won the next game from the Bulldogs by a 34-0 count. The game was played on a field covered with mud and water. A game with Wichita East proved to be the big thrill of the season, although the team lost to the Blue Aces by a 19-7 score. In the first half the Bulldogs played over their heads and as a result were leading 7-6. This one point was not e- nough as the Blue Aces came back strong and won the game 19-7. The Bulldogs traveled to Augusta for their next game and came out on the long end of the score for a 13-12 victory. The local team played inspired ball dur- ing the whole game played on the Au- gusta field. Newkirk fell before the Bulldog's pass and lateral attack in the last quarter to give the home team a 12-0 victory for the second win of the year. Followed losses to Pratt, 13-0, and to Newton, 33-0.

In the first Ark Valley games the Bulldogs displayed a powerful offense that swamped the Wellington Crusaders and the Wichita East Blue Aces by 43-14 and 40-21 scores, respectively. The Bull- dogs had a four point lead over Newton at the half but faded in the next two stanzas to lose a 28-27 decision. The next loss for the Arks was ad- ministered to them by the strong Win- field Vikings, 27-16. The Bulldogs took the next three games in easy style from ElDorado, North and Wellington. The East high Blue Aces took a surprise vic- tory by walloping the Arks 28-21. Again second time of the year, 27-13. Wichita North fell before them in the last Valley game which was close through-out. The score was 28-20. In the first regional' game Nicho1son's squad trounced the Crusaders for the third time of the season by beating them 34-19. The last two tilts of the regional proved to be thrillers as the Bulldogs came from behind to defeat both Wichita East and Winfield on successive nights. They beat East 35-29 and put on a wild last quarter rally to beat out the strong Win- field team, 29-27. I In the state tourney the following week the Arks trounced Ward and Topeka in the first two games but lost to Chanute in the third. They turned back Eureka in Coach Nicholson's crew was defeated by the state champs by a 36-30 margin. In the next two games the Ark City quintet again hit its winning stride to trounce Hutchinson and ElDorado by large margins. The fracas with Winfield proved to be a disappointment for the the final tilt to take third place in the State Tournament.

Ten juniors, five seniors and two sophomores were chosen to be on the squad. The juniors are Jerry Ames, Joan Sch- ramm, Arlene Bishop, Ruth Ruckel, Doro- thy Bowman, Helen McKeever, Betty Al- len, Helen Elston, Nita Jo Hinton, and Jeanne Day. Peggi Ogren, Elizabeth Lewis, Mar- jorie Hadley, Kathryn Curfman, and Ma- ry Weisbach are the seniors. Lulu Mae Hughes and Mary Louise Fountain are the sophomores. The winners of the high school tourna- ment usually enter the Women's City Tennis Tournaments for the experience and to test their competitive ability even further. The women and girls of Arkan- sas City, according to Miss Davis, have more enthusiasm than usually exists in a town of this size. The Ark Valley tournament has been discontinued since the organization of the state G. A. A. y's Tennis With five lettermen returning and with fine spring weather assured, prospects for another winning tennis team were assured for Arkansas City Louis Cooley was appointed coach to succeed A. L. Curry, who was assigned golf. Returning lettermen include Larry Pipkin, state and Valley singles runner-up of 1936, Howard Engleman, who is playing his fourth year for the Arks, and Billy Howard, Keith Curfman and Jack Floyd. The Arks started off the season in fine form with a 5-1 win over the always powerful Winfield Vikings in a dual meet. Anthony was the next Bulldog victim as the "Cooley men" handed them a 6-0 whitewash. In view of their fine seasonal 1'ecord the Arks will be favorites to win the Valley and State crowns should they GS Last year's track team was one of the outstanding teams in the Ark Valley and this year's squad is trying to follow in its footprints. This season Coach Nicholson has mold- ed a cinder squad with only two letter- men to aid him. Those two veterans were Vernon Moffitt, hurdler, and Walter Mc- Dowell, distance man. The team was weakened considerably by the ineligibility of Alex and Ell Caine. who were two of the strongest men on last year's squad. Track season opened with a dual meet with Winfield followed by the Anthony relays. The Tonkawa meet was next with the Bulldogs placing fifth. The following week the Bulldogs took second at the Coffeyville meet, show- ing generally improved form after a dis- couraging beginning. The Arks then tra- veled to the Ark Valley meet, the region- als, and the last trip was to the state meet. 'Swingin' High" After an absence of two years, golf was again resumed in the high school as an extra-curricular activity. Through arrangements made with the Spring- hill officials, 12 memberships were given to the school for the golf squad. The first match for the Bulldog squad was against a strong Coffeyville team which defeated the locals by a 23-13 score. In the next match of the season the Arks made a good showing at Winfield in a triangular. Mr. Curry, athletic di- rector, takes charge of the golfers. The team attended the Ark Valley meet at Wellington. With only three of the 12 graduating this spring prospects look good for an outstanding golf team next year. Those who were on the team this year are Al Knight, Arthur Johnson, Jr., Robert Wilson, Merle Conroy, Donald Lancaster, Jack Williams, Chester Turner, Loren Kelly, Charles Miller, Ralph Champ, and Clinton Howard. uRacketeers" vs, GIRLS' TENNIS TEAM TOD Row, left to right- Marjorie Hadley: Ruth Ruckel: Elizabeth Lewis: Mary Fountain: l'911:1i OKFCHI Juan Schramm: Nita Jo Hinton: Arline Bishop.
