Kusinvss Manager 4) Darid Taijior Faculty Advisor hi presenting Through the pages of this year ' s In- dian, we have endeavored to transmit our way of life at Arkansas State Col- lege by capturing through pictures and words the intangible ASC spirit which emphasizes the betterment of the in- dividual, the unlimited opportunities for those with initiative, cooperation, and magnitude. These constitute the essence of our school. To students it will be the re-living of days past, of laughter, endless lectures, a period that brought a deeper understanding of life, new standards and attitudes, the desire for a democratic future.

Mom and Dad, just how we feel about your part in our college life. Even when we come home for holidays, we are likely to be running around with old friends, visiting, partying, and many other things that take our time, and then we forget to say those little things that we had meant to say. However, there are so many times when thoughts do run through our minds and we reflect on what you have done to enable us to attend college to broaden our minds and become better citizens. Yes, maybe it is late at night when everything is quiet, after a serious chapel program, or during a lecture that we think about your sacrifices. Some of the things you have given us can be measured. It is easy to compute how much money you have spent on tuition, books, room, and travel. It is possible to determine how much of your time, precious time, that has been spent doing things for us that make it feasible for us to be here. Much more difficxdt to calcidate are the intangible things you have contributed: the inspiration that you gave us which made us desire an education; the encouragement that you have given, in person and in your letters, when we found the going rough; the faith that you have evidenced at all times; your constant interest in every small thing that we have done; these and many others are the things that actually mean so much. Because of your sacrifices for ns, we proudly dedicate the 1953 INDIAN to you OUR PARENTS. Your sons and daughters review our friendly campus Our immediate goals vary greatly, yet we are a closely integrated group. This is an outgrowth of the sincere at- titude that prevails here. We do not talk friendliness; we have achieved it. I i wills students molding careers to equip a consecrate era The world before us does not listen for excuses, it wants " doers. " At State our experi- ences, as we work and play together, are equipping us for the jobs ahead. We realize that as mature citizens we will be expected to shoulder re- sponsibility. 11 [laijsiiig for play— for worship for this 14 • • • the departments • Since the signing of Act 100 of the Acts of 1909 establis hing four schools of agriculture in the state of Arkansas, each successive year lias brought changes for the betterment of our institution. Dur- ing the first year. 1910. one hundred eighty-nine students enrolled, and while the Administration advised ht§ . . . Building was being completed, the students attend- ed classes on the second floor of one of the business establishments in uptown Jonesboro with students living in private homes until the first dormitories, Barnhart and Lewis, were erected. After the build- ings were finished, a federal highway, the first in the state, was built to the college. In 1925 State became Arkansas State Agricul- tural and Mechanical College. First District. 1929 brought a new building program, first of which was the College Club. The Administration Build- ing burned in 1931 and was reconstructed at a cost of $350,000; however library material, books, records, and other valuable furnishings can never be restored. In 1930 two years of college work was added and the North Central Association rec- ognized State as a standard arts college receiving its membership as a senior college under the name of Arkansas State College, with the authority to grant degrees. This same year brought construction of the Women ' s Residence Hall and Danner Hall with Commons, the Engineering, Education, Sci- ence. Agriculture and other buildings being added later. With the steadily increasing enrollment has come new and adequate curriculum of studies. This year revision placed the schools under ten departments, which form the basis of our modern- ized, r.dvancing institution. The harmony between these departments received commendation by vis- iting evaluating teams of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. The Board of Trustees: James Heath, Marion; Vice-Chairman Roland Hughes, Jonesboro; Secretary Russel Owen, Marked Tree; William Wyatt, Blytheville; and Chairman R. S. Rainwater, Walnut Ridge. 6 thv president The numerous improvements made throughout the Col- lege this year have stemmed largely from the efforts of our industrious president, Dr. Carl R. Reng. In the two years he has been here he has won the admiration of both stu- dents and faculty with his ability to coordinate all the op- erations of the College efficaciously. The departmental revision, modernization of campus and buildings, and num- berless promotions for the institution are indicative of the advancement he has made. Before coming to Arkansas State Col- lege, Dr. Reng attended Buena Vista College, Drake University and the Uni- versity of Missouri where he received his B. A., M. S. E., and Ph. D. degrees. Buena Vista College later bestowed upon him the honorary degree of L. L. D. Dur- ing World War II President Reng served as Lt. Commander of the U. S. Navy, and upon his return in 1946 became Pro- fessor of the Educational Administration at the University of Arkansas. He re- mained at the university until he ac- cepted the offer to become President of Arkansas State College. President Reng is a member of the Masonic Lodge, Phi Delta Kappa, Kappa Delta Pi, the Rotary Club and the Meth- odist Church. The congeniality which Dr. Reng administers in student as- sociations is an example of the admirable relationship between students and the administration. Under his capable leader- ship Arkansas State is expanding each year, rapidly becoming a favorite educa- tional center. the administrators Baird V. Keister, B. S., M. A. L. W. " Tex " Plunkett, A. B., M. J. Registrar of the College Director of News Bureau IS James Robert Moore, A. B., M. A. Dean of Men Margaret M. Trainor, B. A., M. P. S Dean of Women and the deans These well-known people are responsible for the great undercurrents of activity which keep the col- lege operating steadily day after day. We are awed by their endless appointments, committee meetings, and their ability to accomplish so much. A " trip to the Dean ' s " or one of the Administration quickly solves any problems we students may have. Through the years ' associations as they take an active inter- est in our studies, extra-curricular and personal life, we realize the value thejr advice and assistance has been. We will always remember their traits of dignity, character, and service, and the good influ- ences they have been during our years at State. Jam u ean C f, " M - 33462 business administration A Enrolled in the second largest department in school, Majors in Business Administration keep the fourth floor of the Administration Building buzzing as they meet classes and laboratory schedules. Stenographic, cal- culating, statistical, secretarial, economic, and general business courses are offered with a curriculum designed to prepare students for participation in the various busi- nesses and occupations of their choice. During the year the department has entertained rep- resentatives from the Federal Reserve Bank in St. Louis, accounting organizations including the local C. P. A. representatives, sales and advertising specialists, region- al business leaders from Firestone, American Marketing Association, Southwestern Publishing Company and others. Student field trips have included trips to Plough, Inc., Bruce Lumber Company, Wonder Baking Company, Ford and International Harvester in Memphis as well as many of the local concerns. Lewis Neal Amis Jasper B. Brown Robert L. Ferralasco David G. Taylor Lucille Taylor 20 A common sight in the Business Department is the laboratory work done in typewriting, calcula- ting machines and other subjects. The business equipment is relatively new and is being enlarged each year. Calculators, electric typewriters, a dictation and recording machine and dictaphones are a- mong the newest devices. The library collection has ad- ded approximately one hundred volumes dealing with business, economics and commercial teaching. Graduates of the Business Administration field have been highly in demand. At the end of 1952 a number of the graduates moved into finance or other responsible positions in the armed forces. All accounting majors were placed with business or accounting firms needing such trained employees. All teachers were placed in well-paying commercial positions. Economics or B. A. majors are employed in their own businesses, teaching or with some responsible firm. A number of these have received promotions, and the department has a degree of satisfaction in placing each graduating student. 21 literature and language Lebelva Connelly Jack Farris Eleanor Lane This department offers courses including speech, journalism, literature, languages and grammar. English is required of everyone, so throughout the freshman year themes, term reports, the famous works of literature, poetry and the Purdue Tests rack the brain to finally become useful knowledge. Speech courses de- velop confidence and self-expression. The Herald, edited by the journalism classes, and the Arrow, composed of student literature and poetry are the two publications of the depart- ment. The language division is headed by Dr. Daniel Pasmore who sponsors Le Cercle Fran- cais and Der Deutsche Verein. Each year these clubs gi ve a Christmas party which has become a tradition on the campus. Th? debate team schedules debates with colleges throughout the South under the direction of Dr. Frank Plunkett. Through these sources a valuable education can be gained for professional ca- reers in law, journalism, teaching, govern- ment and other fields. 22 Dr. Fred Pasmore Dr. F. W. Plunkett The speech class was held spellbound by Duke Mann ' s oratory. 23 . . social science Geography, history, political science, sociology and home economics are the major fields under the Social Science Department. Classroom work is broadened by field trips taken by students in the various courses. Political Science classes visited the local court ses- sions, and trips to Memphis and Little Rock were made by groups on frequent occasions. Each year a summer tour is conducted offering hours in Geography. The class toured the Southeastern United States and Cuba last summer, and a cruise to Europe and the British Isles is planned for this year. Host to the Conference of the Southwest Region of College International Relations Clubs last year, the department entertained students and faculty advisors from several colleges and universities in the South- western states. Dr. C. T. Miao. Chinese member of the United Nations, addressed the group. Preparation for such vocations as social work, the ministry, various governmental work, teaching and home economic fields is complete with courses de- signed to prepare the student for citizenship in the modern world. During the national election, the Pre- Law Club held a Mock Election where strong divi- sion of opinions was in evidence. Governmental pro- cedures and developments are taught in an interest- ing, comprehensive manner to enab le the student to better understand his country and to develop respon- sibility as an individual.

McClintock 24 25 Exam time, term reports, course assignments for research, and browsing make the library rooms a popular place. general A silent retreat for research and study, the library is a vital element in acquiring an education in any field. Last year, for better accommodation of the student body, the reading room was painted and air-conditioned, ana partitions separated the book stacks, magazine and pe- riodical division, and the study section. Research mate- rial for all the subject fields are found in the book stacks, and many students are employed to assist those who are unfamiliar with the library system. The Ford Foundation added the Great Book Series to the refer- ence collection, and new equipment and books were pur- chased, making the library a pleasant and resourceful place in which to study. the library Dorothy M. Fenton, A. B., M. S. Professor of Library Science Mabel Krick Camilla Sharp 26 Arts Building Harold C. Manor, B. P. S. M., M. A., Ed. D. Professor oj Fine Arts The close coordination of the Art, Music and Theater departments brought them under the same department this year under the direction of Dr. Harold Manor. Through this change, the students will be provided with additional opportunities for broader experiences whic h will enable them to gain a deep and lasting appreciation of the arts. Through plays, numerous exhibits, concerts, and other contributions, this department adds to the cultural life on the campus and in the area. The student talent is outstanding for a college this size. In the music field the band, orchestra, choir, ASC Singers, Arkettes and soloists present programs for Chapel and other events. Various classes in art teach de- sign, advertising, house planning, landscaping and paint- ing. One can always find many interesting exhibits in the Art Hall. Through plays and play production many students learn the basic principles of good dramatics. In plays given each year, the performances evince the enormous amount of work put into their production. The tours of the Arkettes and the Choir as Ambas- sadors of Arkansas State should also be mentioned. Both groups appeared on television in Memphis and they have presented programs throughout Arkansas and Missouri. The rapidity with which these three fields have ad- vanced is remarkable, and they will continue to enrich student experiences and provide the necessary stimulus for the cultural growth of the school. 27 23 29 30 Arkansas State College has one of the most mod- ern printing plants in the South, and its Printing Department is becoming well known in the print- ing and publishing field for the fine students that it is training. As a. result, the Department has been approved for Vocational work by the State of Ark- ansas and the Federal Government. Graduates of its four-year course have excellent opportunities for careers in the printing industry in presswork, linotype, make up or bindery work, or they may go into the journalistic field since the curriculum also includes a journalism minor. For those desiring to be teachers, a curriculum has been set up to include education courses necessary to meet teaching requirements. On the vocational level, a two-year course has been approved for thos? not desiring an academic course, and several Korean veterans have enrolled. Students enjoy setting type, making-up, printing, and folding the HERALD, ALUMNI CHIEF, and the catalog, plus designing their own stationery. They have re-organized the Graphic Arts Club, and among the outstanding events planned for the year are the annual Christmas Dinner Party and the Spring picnic. teaching Giving future teachers all the newest ideas for stimulating interest in their fields, the Education Department has continued to grow under the capable leadership of Dr. Paul E. Couch. Through his efforts the department has become well-known throughout the Mid- South as a teacher-training center. Soon to assume the responsibility of mold- ing tomorrow ' s citizens, these students have been taught to assume their responsibilities in a democratic and effective manner, and to develop a practical common sense philosophy of education that is sound, workable, and ex- pandable. In addition to the regular term students, this department offers five-week terms and Saturday classes for the benefit of teachers in the area. New this year were the Graduate classes for those desiring a Master ' s in Edu- cation. Through the Demonstration School which consists of six grades, students are given a Paul E. Couch, A. B., M. A., Ed. D. Professor of Education and Psychology Education Building chance to demonstrate their abilities using modern equipment and the latest methods in teaching. Through a grand program, the child- ren are taken on field trips, present programs, and do outstanding work in art, music and other fields. Students also teach in the vari- ous areas surrounding State which cooperate in giving the students classroom experience in all twelve grades. A placement bureau is maintained by this department for the purpose of securing posi- tions upon graduation. Numerous are the graduates now teaching nearby, and their reputations are living examples of the good job this school is doing in preparing its stu- dents for their work in various fields. Typi- cal is the statement of one superintendent, " Arkansas State College gives me the best. " We feel a deep pride in knowing that State is progressing each year, and that we are a part of that growth. With each improvement we should strive to improve ourselves to be true representatives of this, our community. ■ m %fmmsm Richard Kilgallkn Dr. Robb L. Shanks I )r. Asa Ruyi.k W. L. Smith 33 science Science Building W. W. Nedrow, A. B., M. A., Ph. D. Professor oj Science The Department of Science includes the subdivisions of chem ' stry, mathematics, engineering, physics and bi- ology. The elementary courses of these subjects have a broad educational aim from the standpoint of develop- ing correct habits, attitudes, appreciations and ideals. Upon the knowledge represented in these sciences all the modern developments from atomic energy to lifesav- ing antibiotic drugs have depended. Knowledge of the basic principles of these subjects will give understand- ing and interest to everyday living. Life becomes more meaningful and worthwhile as one comes to understand the forces that add to one ' s comfort, convenience and pleasures. Within the past few years many new teaching aids have been added in the department such as: geiger counter, opaque projector, microprojector, voltimeter, optical bench, colorimeters, optical disc, charts and many useful items of equipment and materials. The department is well equipped and is superior to many schools of larger size in its well-furnished lecture rooms and laboratories. The advanced courses are de- signed for those who will find a need for them in their chosen vocations, ranging from teaching and research to medicine and engineering. Students should strongly con- sider the possibilities of the training obtainable in the field of science, and their value in the service of man- kind. 35 i 37 physical education J. A. Tomlinson, B. S., A. M. Projessor of Physical Education Apart from the outstanding work that has been done in the major sports, the Department of Athletics and Physicial Education has many important phases concerning the entire student body. Students in all departments enjoy the advantages offered in various subjects, and spend a great deal of time participating in the intramural program which offers the opportu- nity to meet practically everyone and adds the good feelings between students and faculty that partici- pate. Basketball, badminton, volleyball, speedball, touch football, tennis, archery and other games are included in the program. A new golf course was laid out northeast of the campus, and golfing was included in the physical ed- ucation curriculum. The swimming pool was painted and remodeled and was open to the students five times each week. Senior life-saving was offered, and in the spring a swimming meet was held. " Play night " is one of the most enjoyable phases of gym life. Each Tuesday night the gymnasium was filled with all types of sports lovers, faculty and stu- dents, who played together forming solid friendships while demonstrating expert ability. Physical Education Building 39 agriculture Ag Students enjoy a varied program touching all areas of farm life. Clarence C. Cravens William W. Etzel William George Laysel Hochstetler Paul Saalwaechter H. E. White 40 The only college in the state, with the exception of the university, where a degree in Agriculture may be obtained. Arkansas State is located in one of the finest agriculture areas of the nation and lends itself admirably to a teaching program of agriculture and its related industry. The College farm is well equipped with buildings, livestock, and machinery for use in the instructional program, having just this year pur- chased a $45,000 dairy herd. As far as is practical the laboratory method of instruction is used, employing the facilities of the community as well as those of the College farm. This department gives thorough preparation in the sciences basic to agriculture, provides instruction in the applications of these sciences to agricultural practice, and offers a liberal, as well as a practical general education. Preparation for professional and vocational services in various fields of agriculture is outlined, and general preparation is given for farm- ing and rural life. Agri majors are a jovial group who add much to the life of the school with their continuous bug col- lecting, early-morning excursions, field labs and gen- eral activities. Webb Jones. B. S.. M. A..

Farrell Enrollment in the ROTC Program for the third successive year has broken all post war records. Four hundred and twenty-five cadets enrolled in all classes. The Advanced Course Enrollment of 90 almost tripled that of September 1951. The Department of the Army selected Arkansas State Col- lege as one of twenty-five units in the nation to test a Gen- eral Military Science Curriculum for school year 1952-1953. Under this program,- members of the advanced class will be selected by the Department of the Army for commission in various arms and services based on the recommendations of a board composed of academic and military faculty members. The cadet begins his branch specialization at the ROTC sum- mer camp of the arm or service to which he is detailed. The new curriculum stresses classroom work in the broad fields of Military History, Organization, Operations, Admin- Drill Hall The Seniors The Color Guard. istration and Logistics, and includes a thorough grounding in Infantry weapons and tactics, knowledge deemed essen- tial for all commissioned officers regardless of branch. The ROTC band of 35 pieces, and the " Red Hats " crack drill battery, are two of the best organizations of their type in the south. Both played major roles in campus and civic activities, and made many public appearances throughout the year. The Rifle Team is making every effort to repeat the Governor ' s Cup victory of May 1952. The Cadet Officers Club, and Non-Commissioned Officers Club were very active, and again sponsored the colorful Mil- itary Ball which took place in March. Nineteen members of the Second Advanced Class are eli- gible for commissions as Second Lieutenants, Artillery, Uni- ted States Army Reserve upon completing the requirements for graduation.

After instructing candidates and hold- ing the freshman election, Wednesday night and after-game dances in the Wigwam were arranged. Attention was then turned to the Homecoming plans for which SGA assumed complete responsibility. For the first time in Homecoming history the dance was free of charge. Numberless committees were ap- pointed to take charge of coronation for the Queen, the parade, pre-game ceremonies, clubs to inform on floats and election re- quirements, the chapel program and home- coming smorgasbord held for alumni. The night before the dance a special meeting was called to complete the dance decora- tions and events progressed smoothly from a success- ful dance to a winning game Saturday night. After every SGA meeting a paper was published cov- ering the business discussed to distribute to the stu- dent body. A television set purchased by the student government was moved to WRH for better conven- ience of students. In cooperation with the Jonesboro Jaycees, the Cru- sade for Freedom was sponsored by SGA on cam- pus, and the campaign to put Scotchlite on car bump- ers was promoted. Decals were sold of the Indian motif for cars and suitcases. An instigator for the State Student Government Or- ganization, our SGA was host to the college student governments of the state in the April convention here. Through this organization the student governments arranged to exchange two chapel programs through- out the year. In closing, we present the preamble of the Constitu- tion: We, the students of Arkansas State College, desiring to assume certain responsibilities and privileges of self-government, to strive toward higher academic standards, to promote democratic principles, to fos- ter close cooperation between students and faculty, to encourage worthwhile projects in the interest of the entire student body, and to serve the general wel- fare of the college, do ordain and establish this con- stitution within the limits defined by the President and the Board of Trustees of this institution. Filling out Crusade for Freedom cards are Miss Lane, Advisor, Gene Foreman, Ruth Rogers, Sopho- more Representative, and Charles Frierson, Senior Representative. " Homecoming was a great success, " stated Colonel Haberer, faculty advisor, as Mr. Kilgallen, also faculty advisor, Pat Simpkins, Junior Class Presi- dent, Houston Garner, Sophomore Class President and Jo Daugherty, 2nd Vice-President, agreed. Ill arkastaters The Arkastaters, through the combined talents of Gene Boucher and Joyce Pasmore, constructed an appropriate float for the Homecoming Queen dur- ing the first semester.

The Redskins left no doubt as to their scoring ability. State kicked to the Middies to start the game. They held for four downs, and then scored their first touchdown in three plays. It was impossible to single out an individual star as the Indian juggernaut picked up yardage. Richie Woit, most valuable player in the Re- frigerator Bowl last year, tallied three touch- downs; Buzzy Gebert hit pay dirt twice, and Rudy Wagner added one.
