High has ever gloried in the Purple and the Goldg ' And her banners ever waver in the sky her colors bold, For we win all kinds of victories in football and debate, In basketball no better can be ,found in all the state. A Q Y -2 During sii long years of High School we learn our lessons well, But on the field of battle we certainly can yell, 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 ever unfurled, 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. ,54fs ALMA M TER 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 halls. 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 teachers. 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, ..4- 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. GRIDIRO GROUNDS 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. lie zz.-'.::. I E 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 ... .,.., -......, -.-- I .-6. 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 school Seniors. 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. 10 ERNME T GALAXY 3.1 ll. 1.

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 coaches.

CHAPMAN DAVIS SHANKS MEIERS ,IAN CHAPMAN was one of the finest bull handling quarter- backs and passers the State has ever had. ,llli Kl'fNNl'iY, despite H tremendous string of injuries, battled his way to the position ofa top fullback. lll'li'l'lS ADANIS 'lf Ark City can put Admins on the field, they'll have a team", was the comment made by 'think lid- wards, Wichita North lligh roach, about the terrifir running halfback. DICK WATSON, canine center, combined with lfhapman for six complete games without a fumbled hand off. JAY WOODARD, one of the toughest defensive tackles, suffered early injuries that possibly cost him Yalley ratings. Bl'iHKl,ll'l l"l'flillfU, an end, received honorable mention on the Prep School All-American team. lle was noted for his state's leading pnnting average and sterling all round play. BIIAI, ItItlll'1llSON, a senior guard, was extremely valuable for he was also able to play tackle. lll'll Sll0l'lN1AKlCli is a 6'5", 201 pound junior tackle. After the Wichita lfast game Bud was selected 'l.ineman of the Week' bt' '-he KANSAS CITY STAR. CONNY GARDNI-QR, a sophomore, served as team manager. Due to a head injury, he lost a year of play, but much is expected of him in the next two years. GLENN SMITH, 'Hammy', was a great junior quarterback and should prove invaluable to the team next year. ROGER Rl-QARNI-I, shifting from quarterback position, played guard this year. A junior, Roger will have an opportunity to see a lot of play next year. BILL GUCHIS, a junior fullback, displayed his ability well in 'B' games and defensive assignments in 'A' games. JERRY WALTRIP, a senior, proved to be a strong reserve player. Bll,l. N1l'illIliS, a junior quarterback, was an exceptionally calm passer and could he a good spot player next year. PHIL 't1ITCHEI,I, was a key man on both offense and de- fense. This senior guard was especially valuable as he could also play the tackle spot. DON BAKER was a junior halfback with a driving high knee running action. JACK TIPTON, a junior center, although small is a born linebacker with a sense of where to be at the right time. TOMMY DAVIS, W. T. D. of ACHS, was a senior end and the fastest high school boy in the State. He showed three year's action as a first string end. TOM STARK, a sophomore halfback, teamed with lrvin Wahlenmaier as the finest double safety combination. The two players made more yards off the opposing teams than the opponents did. RUSSELL TOWLI-QS, another sophomore halfback, displayed signs of future talent with an 86 yardjpunt return against Winfield. IHVIN WAHLENMAIER, a senior guard and defensive half- back, took his place as one of AC's hardest tacklers. His tackling played a major part in the victory over liast. l.AllllY NlUlllllS, ri Sophomore guard from l'il Dorado, will he ti tough line prospect in fixture Years, MANY l'lllilAS, a fast sophomore guard, makes the most of opponent's errors. This fart was proved in several 'li' ganies, fiilli' llUWl,l-,li, a senior reserve guard, added much tothe squad's balance and power. jl-ililti' ANS'l'lNl'. served his second year as one of the unsung student managers. llis juli plays a major part in a tr-am's success. ,HN1 l-IS'I'lil', the team workhorse, probably played more niinutes than any other member. lle was always best in good hard football. DUN SIIANKS was one of those boys possessing exceptional talents. Don was always in the path of opposing ball carriers, despite a painful shoulder injury. DON CARTER was a junior halfbaek with lots of speed. fle might be next year's kick-off man. ALAN Al'STlN, a junior end with little experience, greatly improved his game later in the season. GORDON LUNGABACH was another senior reserve end who was bucking for one of the strongest positions. KEN N1cNl'TT, a sophomore end, with his size and team Spirit should make a valuable man in future years. HOHIN Kl'NKI.I-I, one of the good retuming junior backs, was a fine squad player. 'NlAllVlN N1ciIOItGAllY, a junior reserve end, was another great team man who displayed signs of future talent. TOM BOSSI was one of the finest small players in the line. He was a seniorlguard who displayed great speed in leading wide plays. TONY Tll"l'UN teamed up with Davis and Perico to give a combination of the three best ends in the Valley. A 175 pound senior, he provided the high point of the Hutchinson game by his defensive play. KENNY GANN was possibly the fourth best end in the Valley. A 180 pound, 6'4', sophomore, he shows signs of being a leading end. JACK HORROR was a senior who substituted in outstanding fashion at guard and tackle position. llis game at Winfield was an example of the depth in team spirit that brought about an undefeated season. l,l,OYD HANNAHAN was a junior end whose practice spirit and late season defensive work will enable him to replace departing linemen. llOBl'iRT VAN SClll,'YVlfl'l,a guard, showed drive and the desire to be a great player in his first year of football. JOHN SANDERS, a junior guard, has proven himself to he a rough defensive lineman in all phases of play. TERRY STEWART, a 180 pound guard who proved hard to move in scrimmages, should be a strong regular in '54, HILL GODI-'Rl-IY, a sophomore student manager, whose hard work was valuable to the squad, can't be over estimated.

Each candidate was seated in a convertible driven by her escort. Gail was escorted by Ron- nie Houdek, Mary Jeanne by Mike Smith, and Diane by Marion Deal. At half-time the band led by Ann Hines and the drill team led by Shirley Flick marched onto the field. The candidates were driven to the 50 yard line and then escorted to the center of the field where the crowning took place. Co- captains for the game, Bill Roberson and Don Shanks were given, by Conny Gardner, the envelope containing the queen's identity. Paula Craig, vice president of the Pep Club, presented Shanks with the crown, and he in tum placed it on Gail's head, giving her the traditional kiss. Gail was presented a gold football by Marilyn Hantla, president of the Pep Club. Roberson then took a bouquet of gold mums from Karleen Mason and presented them to the queen along with a traditional kiss. Following the crowning the band played "Let Me Call You Sweetheart", in honor of the queeng this ended the ceremony. The team is supported by the students, faculty and town.
