They Worked hard, they fought hard, lt's this quality that makes real men and Women. FOOTB LL Ten lettermen were on hand to answer the call of coach Iames Chadwick as the l947 team began to take shape. Headed by lohn Schrock, official captain for the squad, veterans Harold Crist, Keith Phillips, Olin Riggs, and Paul Fleming-all seniors -whipped into line and began work with the many inexperienced boys out for football this year. Measured in touchdowns and victories, this sea- son was not a success for the knights, but consid- ered from another standpoint, that of experience and training, it was a definite step forward. Merrill Lacy, a junior, looked promising as quar- terback, Ronnie Fults, a freshman, did a swell job both at fullback and halfback. "Tuffy" Dicks and Olin Riggs were responsible for most of the aerial Warfare. "Cue-ball" McKnelly, "Dizzy" Dean, "Deke" Traxler, "Red" Lowe, "Shorty" Schrock, Wayne Fleming, and others on the squad stayed in there and fought when the going was tough. These boys will be the backbone of next year's team.

The boys not only looked good, but they played like veterans.

Band has really gone places and done things this year. The band participated in the homecoming festivities at E.l. and Sullivan, sent twenty members to the Moultrie County Band Festival, and entered the District and State Spring Band Contests equipped with snappy new uniforms. Besides these out-of-town engagements, the band has put zip and sparkle into nearly all football games this year with its marching parades and spirited music. The baton twirlers and varsity stunts were added features during the basketball season. On the aesthetic side, there was the Sunday afternoon vespers concert in the Winter, a Solo and Ensemble Recital, and the spring concert. 443655 Smitty gwes the downbeat at fifth hour band rehearsal. Look at that formation! Arthurs march- ing band has been acclaimed both at home and out-of-town as one ot THE best, Our 'lprima donnasu not only added that certain spark to those "at the half" performances, but exhibited their skill and dexterity with the baton.

Although we lost our football game with Villa Grove, the weather was perfect, the parade magnificient, the orchestra smooth, the decorations beautiful, the coronation regal, and the crowd stupendous. The schedule of events was as follows: Parade 4:00 PM. Pep Session 5.00 PM. Football Game 7:30 PM. Dance 9:00 PM.

Each of the students in the senior class voted on three girls, who they believed were best qualified as good citizens on the basis of the four points listed below. From the three girls receiving the highest number of votes, the faculty elected one girl to represent the school as its Good Citizen. The following qualities were considered in making the selection: Dependability-Truthfulness, Honesty, Punctuality Servicehfflooperation, Helpfulness, Responsibility Leadership-Personality, Self Control, Initiative Patriotism-Unselfish Loyalty to American Ideals 4422 Hall ol Fame Rose Stock Most Likely to Succeed Lerae Gcrlbreath Most Popular Girl Don Dean Most Popular Boy Iohn Schrock Outstanding Athlete Ianece Blaase Outstanding Girl Athlete Bob McKne1ly Wittiest Student Keith Phillips Sndppiest Dresser Lavon Eads Feminine Fdsliionpldte Row 1: Dick Robinson, Nancy Pugsley, Iohn Krummel Row 2: Margaret Pyle, Edna Mast, Rose Stock, Phyllis Wise LATI CLUB On the last Friday of each month the Latin Club regularly held its meet- ings, lt was surprising to find how many phases of modern life were related to that of the ancient Romans. Many of the students corresponded with students in foreign countries. For this reason the relationship between languages, particularly the romance languages, was discussed. Besides correlating art, architecture, mythology, ancient history, philos- ophy, and languages, the club had several social functions. Chief among these Was the Christmas caroling party at which the students sang the ancient hymns in both Latin and English.

We realize that this book is slightly revolution- ary, but We meant it to be. lt wasn't just that we had the urge to be different, the cause lies deeper than that. We formulated definite policies and tried to carry them out. How Well We have done this is for you alone to judge. Our policies Were: l. 2. 3. 4. To include larger pictures, and more of them. fThis meant cutting the amount of unnecessary copy.D To give more recognition to such active organizations as the band. To present the "better half" in their ath- letic department. To show how the community, school board, faculty, and student body Working together is helping our country to have better equipped and more useful citizens for tomorrows world.
