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.

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.

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
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
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
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
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-
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

A t'on has always been the byword of the senior class of 1936-'3'7. When they

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.

Their high school career has been much the same as a three act play. In the first
they had Supporting roles which they played well and which won them advancement in
the second act. As juniors they were subleads, Pllttihg all theh' Vhh ahd Vig'-W iht0 be-
coming ever improving members of the high school cast. In the last and third act they
were the leads, the high light of the play. All through the drama they were doing their
part, as they thought proper, being always ready when called upon and eager to play
their roles well.
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.

eMusic and dramatic activities of the senior high school, described more fully
elsewhere in this book, have given much pleasure and added much culture to a icom-
munity which is always appreciative of the good things of life. Though .the thrill of
winning is not the sole Purpose of athletic jousting as practiced at Arkansas City, the

Scholastic brilliance has been visited upon a fair portion of the Class of 1937.
Douglas More was the first of th
the finals of the Summerfield scholarship examinations, and the group recognizes that
in this accomplishment by one of its members it leaves a
e Arkansas City seniors to be invited to take part in
mark toward which coming
generations of Bulldogs may well strain.
Representatives of the group have filled high places in the alignment of foren-
sics, scholastic journalism, and community activities. Mary Holman, editor of the Ark
Light who piloted that publicaton to its eighth consecutive All-American honor ra-
ting- was also the president of the Kansas Interscholastic Press Association, and in that
capacity reflected glory on her class and her school. Glen Montague, leader at home
and abroad topped Ark Valley extemporaneous speakers as well as doing his bit for
assembly exercises. The senior Aggies, led by Lloyd Cochrane, distinguished them-
selves as judges of fine stock, upholding another A. C. tradition.
So hail and farewell to the
les to come, contentment when their tasks are finished.
Class of '37l May they find success in later ventures,

The club membership is made up of
the head cashier, assistant cashier and
the conference cashiers and their assis-

The business procedure of the Pep Club

Every year a number of students from
the Ark Light staff are admitted to the
International Honorary Society for High
School Journalists, the Quill and Scroll.
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
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.
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

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.

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
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
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-
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. '

Arkansas City went metropolitan in
a big way March 24, for it was on that
day that the music departments of high
school and junior college presented their
annual operetta. The responsibility for
the production of this immense project
was assumed by Charles L. Hinchee, who
is vocal instructor of high school and
"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
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
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.

The 1936 football team, composed of
light, young and inexperienced players,
completed the season with a total of two
wins, a tie and six losses. Coach Nichol-

The Arkansas City high school basket-
ball team completed the season by tak-
ing a pair of third places, one in the Ark
Valley and the other in the state tourna-
ment at Topeka.
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
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

quarter rally to beat out the strong Win-
field team, 29-27. I
