THEIR SACRIFICES PRESENT A LASTING CHALLENGE FOR US TO GIVE OUR BEST IN PEACE AS THEY GAVE THEIR BEST IN WAR. Administration Classes Organizations Military Beauties Athletics Advertisements Snapshots ADMINISTRATION A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT DR. W. J. EDENS Arkansas State College ' s beginnin g was humble. But, its purpose was sound, and strong, and it has continued that way as it moved forward in serving the youth of our State and neighbor states. The lapse of time since its first days has been a testing period of 37 years, during which it has not faltered in its course. Its accomplishments have been myriad in training young people for useful liv- ing. Today " State College " continues looking to the future with the same cour- age and determination essential to any institution of leadership. It recognizes that a college is not just a campus, a group of buildings, a number of students, or a board of control. Arkansas State College is an ideal; an ideal with its mission of service, of life— more life. It lives because others have lived and are living to push on into the unknown so that the finer things of life may be discovered. " State " wishes for everyone who comes Her way rich and useful experiences so essential in living a life worthwhile. W. J. EDENS, President Arkansas State College BOARD OF TRUSTEES William Stuck President Russell Phillips Vice President Gordon Lamb Secretary WILLIAM STUCK One of the most vital administrative powers of the College is the Board of Trustees. The progress of the college is somewhat controlled by these five people. The members are not chosen by popular vote but by an appointment from the Governor. William Stuck of Jonesboro is president of the legislating body ot the Col- lege. He is a prominent business man of Jonesboro and is very interested in the welfare of our College. He was appointed to the board in 1945 by Governor Laney. Russell Phillips of Blytheville is vice president of the board. He became a member of the board in 1945. Gordon Lamb of Corning is secretary of the board. He is the only Alumnus in the history of the college to serve on the Board of Trustees. He is a success- ful banker and business man of Corning and he got his appointment in !946. Miss Pearle Davis of Forrest City has been serving on the board since 1921. Her twenty six years of service have been meritious ones. Senator }. Orville Cheney of Calico Rock was appointed to the board in March of this year, upon the retirement of W. L. Mack of Jonesboro. Senator Cheney comes to the board with proven ability as administrator, especially in the field of education. He attended State Teachers College at Conway and is doing graduate work from the La Salle Institute of Chicago. Registrar B. V. KEISTER Reg istrar B. V. Keister may be called the man of many trades. Holding one of the most difficult jobs on the campus; his jobs are numer- ous and his position is an important one. His first line of duty is to keep an individu- al permanent scholastic and extra-curricular record for each student who comes to Arkansas State College. Other duties that he perforins are President of Student Life Committee, Chairman of Athletic Committee, and Sponsor of the Senior Class and the Delta Omega Sigma fraternity. When he seeks diversions from these respon- sibilities, he indulges in his favorite hobbies- golf and singing. Dean Of The College DR. D. F. SHOWALTER Dr. D. F. Showalter, has been of immeasur- able value to the college, and has been instru- mental in its progress. Many students who have come in contact with the dean or had any dealings with him have found inspiration and guidance when con- ferring with him. He is acquainted with progressive methods of education followed not only in our state but all over the United States. Dean Showalter is well prepared to offer excellent advice to stu- dents who have vocational or academic prob- lems. Dean Of Women MARY ROGERS BROWN Id a responsible position, Mrs. Mary Rogers Brown has been singularly successful. To this office come girls, who have problems concerning dormitory regulations, rules for various social affairs, conduct, etc. She is also a guide to those girls who live in Jonesboro and off the campus. Mrs. Mary Brown has been with the col- lege for a number of years; her influence is felt in the work of every department. She tries to help students gain command over personal re- sources which in turn brings about discipline of mind and spirit. Besides her duties as dean of women, Mrs. Brown is head of the department of Home Eco- nomics. Dean Of Men J. A. TOMLINSON T. A. " Ike " Tomlinson, has been the Dean of Men for the last four years. In this short time he has shown that he is capable of handling student problems with good judgment and sym- pathy. He helps the new student to adjust himself, and helps the old student tackle his individual problems and straighten them out. Along with his duty as dean of men, Mr. Tomlinson is head of the Physical Education Department and coaches basketball. BORIS ALEXANDER Instructor in Business Administration Ph.B. - M.A. RUSSEL H.

McCall Reporter SENIOR CLASS HISTORY The Senior class ot 1947 is approaching its graduation better oriented, intellectually and socially more mature than it was as a freshman class ot 1943. Under the expert leadership of our presi- dent, ]. L. Westbrooke, Jonesboro, Arkansas, we enjoyed the usual freshman parties and picnics, and experienced the freshman initia- tion which was very helpful in our adjust- ment. We were quite green, but eager to learn. As sophisticated sophomores we elected Charles Parker, Blytheville, Arkansas, as presi- dent. By this time we were well adjusted, in fact quite at home on the campus, having passed from the humble status of iniatee to the exalted one of initiator. We stepped into out places as upper- classmen and elected Freddie Stiles, Jones- boro, Arkansas, as president of the junior class. We sponsored the customary junior and senior prom. This year of work was completed and we were eager to step into our places of seniority. Carl Wilson, Augusta, Arkansas, was elected president of the senior class. Under his stable and expert guidance and with the cooperation of our sponsor we feel that we lit quite well into our places ol leadership and dignity. As we leave we take with us lour vears of treasured memories of social and intellectual activities, academic progress and everlasting friendship. RAY STANARD BARER, B. S. E.

Vice President Imogene Joseph Secretary W. H. Perrin Treasurer Robert Wilmoth Student Life Rep. JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY After completing three years at Arkansas State College, we can look back on them as being very successful years. We are also looking forward eagerly to next September when we step up into the senior ranks. In the fall of 1944 about 100 freshmen were enrolled. After three weeks of wearing green hair ribbons and bow ties and various other costumes that the upperclassmen said must be worn, we felt more at home at State. We had adjusted our lives to that of a college freshman and formed lasting friendships. Under the leadership of our president, Scottie Stidham, and sponsor, Dr. H. C. Huitt, we sponsored a number of dances, parties, picnics and weiner roasts. Glen Fox was elected president of our sophomore class and Dr. W. G. Shover was sponsor. From our class this year came the Home Coming Queen and many officers in the organizations on the campus. Carrying out the tradition of the past the sophomores sponsored Founder ' s day. In this, our junior year, our class is un- der the leadership of Charles Ridgley as president and Dr. W. W. Nedrow as sponsor. We have been active in both the social and intellectual life of the College and have been preparing ourselves for the positions we must fill next year as seniors. JANIE M.

GLASGOW Trumann, Arkansas SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY The Sophomore class began its adventur- ous college career as the greenest of freshmen in the fall of 1945. Reassured that our green- ness was a definite sign of life and offered possibilities for extensive growth, we suffered the remarks and superiority of upperclassmen cheerfully. Dr. Homer C. Huitt was our spon- sor and under his supervision we had two outstanding freshman picnics. Coveted awards were won on Honor ' s Day by several members of our class. This year we attained recognition as so- phisticated sophomores who have taken an active part and often the lead in all school activities. Under our sponsorship the Sadie Hawkins Dance was revived for the first time since the war and was hailed by all as a suc- cessful comeback. We are accredited with ar- ranging plans for the gigantic bonfire to be built the night before Homecoming, and in- cidentally suffered most at the hands of fero- cious, determined Freshmen who guarded the wood all night from attack by fire. Our able President is David Coleman of Jonesboro, whose ability has made the class spirit soar high for two consecutive years. This year our sponsor was Leland W. Plunkett, who has been just another Sophomore among us. Thanks to his personality and fun-loving spir- it we have not been lacking in fun and good will. As we look back over these two years we feel we have gained much knowledge not ound in textbooks but by friendly associations with one another. May our last two years be as uplifting and even greater in attainments. HERBER1 ADKINS Manila, Arkansas CHARL ES E.

Freshmen are usually regarded as an insignificant group of people, but that has also been altered in this post war era. One event that brought strict campus respect and recognition was the tra- ditional battle between the Freshmen and Sophomores. This battle centers around a pile of wood, better known as the material for a bonfire. The Sopho- mores built it and the Freshmen attempted to keep them from burning it. The attempt was carried out with overwhelming success by a sturdy group of ap- proximately eighty freshmen. Political races have been as exciting and hot in this class as in any place in the United States. The campaign for class officers culminated in the election of Ned Penny as president to lead us through our first year. The life of a freshman is not too hard. We heard all sorts of things that would happen to us, but after reviewing all facts and events, we find that we leave our status as freshmen with a bright outlook on the future. 5- j;K. r V DEAN H.

DELTA OMEGA SIGMA OFFICERS Carl Calvin Wilson Wallace Greenhaw Evans A. Jackson Hubert Daughtery Avera Knight Bobby Wilkinson Doyle Herron President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Historian Sergeant-at-Arms Pledge Master Delta Omega Sigma, the pioneer and first social Greek letter Fraternity of Arkansas State College was founded in November, 1933. The Fraternity was built on the deep-rooted friendship that existed between five men stu- dents: W. F. DeLoche, Jr., Van Smith, E. L. Taliaferro, Jr., Charles Okey, and Bob Lind- sey. Each realized that a five man fraternity would be short-lived and potentially worth- less, and at no time was it remotely consid- ered that the membership of the group should be confined to the original five. Rather, each felt that from the original circle, a larger group could be built, thus launching a perma- nent organization which would begin initiat- ing new members as older ones became alumni. Fraternities were not permitted, at this time, on the campus, and for this reason Delta Omega Sigma could not function openly- all of which proved a handicap in selecting new members and having social functions off the campus. Charles Light and Leslie Speck were the next members selected, but by the fall of 1934 the membership had grown to the number of twenty, and plans were being made to petition the Board of Trustees for College recognition. On January 25, 1935 the petition was presented to the Board of Trus- tees, and on February 19, the following month, permission was granted by the Board of Trus- tees for the approval of Social Fraternities and Sororities to become active on the camp- us. Activities of Delta Omega Sigma Frater- nity for the year 1946 to 1947 were: Annual Summer Convention, Annual Fall Smoker, Pledges Dinner, Homecoming Dance, Sunrise Breakfast, Annual Spring Formal, and dinner meetings.
