were: Charles Eklund, student councilg Judy Toney, G. A.A.g Marilyn Metzer,
The Senior Class of 1956 entered Field Kindley
as lowly Sophomores in 1952. Mike Logan headed
the class with Judy Toney and Mary Louise Scott as
helpers. Forty-five girls belonged to Waitress Club
and nominated Liz Littrell as their president. Steve
Davis was our nominee for King Kay the Fifth. We
had a nice representation in Sigma Pi as well as in
the annual Kavalkade.
As "all important" Juniors we had Charles Ek-
lund as president, with Dee Lloyd Roberts and
Marilyn Metzer holding the other offices. Charles
Eklund reigned as King Kay the Sixth, due to our
hard work. Herman Bynum was the vice-president
of the student council. Jack Metzen was the presi-
dent of the Junior Red Cross Council. The Junior
play l'No More Homework" was the best ever given.
Our Junior-Senior reception and prom furnished the
Seniors with the gay "Mardi Gras". Our boys made
aagood showing in the various sports of the year.
Then as Mighty Seniors in the fall of the year
we elected Herman Bynum, president, John Kloehr,
vice-president, and Dorothy Caresio, secretary-
treasurer. Judy Toney was our only cheerleader and
also reigned as our football queen. Senior presidents

state Junior and Senior year, were in the limelight. Roger Hendrix and Jerry Doop, co-captained the swimming team in its same
winning way with the help of Herman Bynum and Eddie Weber. Our track men were: Mike McCool, Steve Davis, Carl Barker,

The Golden Breeze of Coach Andy McClure ended their
play by defeating the Chanute "B" team, 55-53. The '55-
'56 season was not as successful as some years as the Breeze
won 9 while losing 7, some of which were very close. Short
on height but long on desire and hustle the Breeze won games
in which they were outreached and outmanned. Coach Cur-
rier of the Tornado looks forward to bringing some of these
aspirants up to the Tornado next year.

February 23 and ended t.he season with the state meet
at Wichita East. Mav 18-19.
Results of the meets for this season could not be
obtained for use in the annual because of the dead-
line date. It was hoped that this years' record would be better
than that of last season because of 15 returning lettermen as
compared to last years' six. Aside from the lettermen, Stoner

The Tomado Tillies Pep and Service Club has had many activities during the school year.
The Ttllies attended all the home football and basketball games and several out-of-town ones.
The Regional Tournament at Parsons was also attended by the girls. Season tickets and schedule
were sold by the group. On November 25, the 27 annual reunion was held at the Dale
Hotel, with "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" as the theme. The Tillies sold Christmas
cards and wrapping paper, which they have done for many years. The organization
helped the community by collecting for the March of Dimes drive. Pep assemblies and
the football, basketball and track coronations were planned and carried out by the girls.
The Tillies attended several track meets, including the Coffeyville Relays. Junior and
Senior Tillies ushered at their respective class plays. The group enjoyed the Christmas
party and the Easter party, which climaxed "Bunny Buddy" week. New members were
initiated at the annual "Tillie Initiation", and all survived the ordeal. The lasf event
of the year was the Senior Farewell, which was held at Rock Point Lodge.

The 1955-56 edition of the Coffeyville
Debate Squad had a full schedule this season,
being on the tournament road for eight week-
ends during the first semester. The squad,
composed mainly of underclassmen, compiled
a better than 500 average, having a 64-59
Dick Downey' Bob Gandt won and lost record over the year. The
following invitational tournaments were at-
tended: Russell, Winfield, Topeka, Newton,
Pittsburg, Wichita, and the Shawnee-
Five debaters earned letters this year.
They were senior Montra Huffman, juniors David North and Bob Gandt, and sophomores Patricia Wettack and Dick Downey. The debate
question was: "RESOLVED: That the Federal Government Should Guarantee Higher Education to Qualified High School Graduates
Through Grants to Colleges and Universities."
The high point of the season occured at the Pittsburg toumament, when the team of Pat Wettack and David North were undefeated,
compiling a perfect 6-0 record. The best speaker point average for an individual tournament was posted by Pat Wettack with a 1. 6
speaker rating a 1. 0 is the best obtainable. Coach Tarbell hopes to mold a winning unit for next season around two outstanding sopho-
more debaters, Pat Wettack and Tommy Mummert.
