THE P RPLE
A. C. High has ever gloried in the Purple and
the Goldg '
And her banners ever waver in the sky her
For we win all kinds of victories in football
In basketball no better can be ,found in all
During sii long years of High School we
learn our lessons well,
But on the field of battle we certainly can
And our shouts are e'er united, with Echoes
from of old,
Till the town.resounds with glories of the
Purple and the Gold.
When our high school days are over and we
labor in the world,
Our A. C. H. S. banners in our hearts are
And there's never sigh or sadness when we
turn to memories old
And renew those days of gladness 'neath the
Purple and the Gold.

Knowledge is power, and schools are the
instruments of knowledge. Arkansas City
Senior High School is the power that the stu-
dents and faculty through the years have made
it. It represents the joy, sorrow, and indif-
ference of each class that walks through its
The High School in the 70's and 80's offered
two courses, Classical and English. The High
School course was divided into three classes,
junior, Middle Class, and Senior. In 1880, the
total enrollment was 80 with a faculty of three
On june 5, 1880, the first Commencement for
a graduating class in Arkansas City was held.
The graduating class consisted of five members.
They had studied in their Senior year, physical
geography, algebra, rhetoric, bookkeeping and
history. The first graduating class out of the
present high school building was in 1923, with
an enrollment of one hundred and ten.
Today the enrollment and faculty of Arkansas
City Senior lligh School have increased con-
siderably. The faculty members qow number
thirty-three, and the enrollment has increased
to six hundred and fifty-five. Four distinct
types of courses are offered. Commercial,
General, Agricultural, and College Preparatory.
Many subjects have also been added.
ACHS has won many. honors and suffered
numerous defeats, in past years, but the spirit
of the school has never faltered. It is this
spirit that has triumphed in '53-'54,
The year 1920 saw a dream commence to unfold --
a far-seeing sportsman's vision of what is now
Curry Field, home of 1953"s state champion Bull-
dogs. Conversion of this area from a dumping ground
flanking a murky creek to a field suitable for football
was no light task, but through the combined efforts
of city officials and responsible persons of the
school district, it was shortly accomplished. Soon
after, the seed was sown which spectators now
recognize as beautiful turf. Previously nameless
it was officially christened Curry Field in honor of
Amos Curry, director of athletics for the city school
system since 1928- Perennial improvements included
the erection of the field house, and the replacement
of wood bleachers with steel bleachers of greater
seating capacity. ln the near future, we hope the
field will be further improved by a more substantial
lighting system and improved press facilities. This
year, the successful football season saw the stands
filled to capacity for the first time.
C GE COR ER
Observing its eighteenth birthday this
year, as are many 1954 seniors, is the
Auditorium-Gymnasium. Built at a cost of
180,000 dollars, the spacious brick building
seats 4,000 people. The first municipal
event to take place in the auditorium-gym
was the Coronation of Queen Alalah V.
Since 1936 the building has been used on
many occasions, and is rated as one of the
finest gyms in the stare.
As the scene of all high school and junior
college home basketball games, the gym has
produced many thrilling spectacles. The
gym is also used by the physical education
c asses, and the auditorium has a special
classroom used by the health classes. Civic
clubs sponsor programs given in the audi-
torium at various times during the year.
The building is owned and operated by
the A.C. school s stem and employs the
work of two buiiiding engineers, Harry
Burnett and Bill Davis.
ln the near future, a parking lot will be
cleared directly behind the autidorium-gym
to accomodate .persons attending events
held in that building.
Another school year has come to .in end
and for everyone an important SIC? has been
taken. lt seenis that only yt-str-rri.iy every-
one was beginning his e-tlircatiori in yunior
high, and found it difficult to imagine .ln in-
troduction into the adult world. The fun and
good time such as assemblies, band, orchc-se
tra, and sports, that were experienced are
still a part of junior high.
bounded in l9l", the Arkansas City junior
High School now has an enrollment of 'OU
Students, and employs Z9 faculty members.
The junior high offers a fine athletic pro-
gram which includes, track, football,
basketball, tennis, and golf. Two hands,
an orchestra, chorus classes, and glee club
classes make up the fine music department.
Stutlent Council is the principal organization.
R PA T A D FUTURE
... .,.., -......, -.--
The future of many of the ACHS students
lies in the Arkansas City junior College.
The citizens of Arkansas City have a college
to be proud of. The students are most
fortunate, also, to have such backing by the
town's people as well as their faculty.
The junior College is far from being all
study and no play. The history of the
junior College presents records of the top
teams in basketball, football, tennis, and
track. ltach October some Sophomore coed
is chosen Queen to rule over the annual
Arkalalah celebration. Later in the year,
another Sophomore is chosen to reign as
Athletic Queen. The event which attracts
the eye of most high school students is the
Tigerama. This is a formal dance held
each spring in honor of the graduating high
This year ACHS students are on the out-
side looking in. ln the next few years the
continuing success of this junior College
will rest On the shoulders of many of us.
May we give it everything we have to make
our junior College a better and more pros-
perous place for all.

A thirty year dream come true is the description given the
1953 Bulldog football team. Ark Valley and State Football
Championships were only a wistful vision seen by students
in ACHS. Fifty-nine players, three coaches, and an enthu-
siastic home school converted this vision into an unforget-
table reality in 1955. lt was a rainy night, September 18,
when the Bulldog squad traveled to Coffeyville for the first
game of the season. A 7-0 victory for t.he canines was rhe
outcome of that gridiron battle. On Friday, November 15,
certainly not an unlucky day, the Bulldogs cinched the State
and Ark Valley titles by downing Hutchinson 34-0. The AC
team not only displayed a commendable winning record but
also a winning spirit and sense of sportsmanship. ACHS,
indeed proud pf the Bulldogs, sponsored an all-day celebra-
tion, which featured an assembly and all-school party, follow-
ing the Hutchinson game in honor of the team and their
