These pages are the living memories of the past year so that in years to come, you have only to look back and find yourself once again in 1948-49. For some it is only the beginning-for others it is the end. Those who have just started may feel that it isn't so much their book. If so, just remember that the last is usually the best. Those who are leaving are probably already of that opinion. But new or old. remember: this is your book. You have made it possible. In fact it is YOU. l6l BOOK I CLASSES . . . though the Seniors of '49 leave with some reluctance, they look toward the future with anticipation. With am- bition and energy their fellow unclerclassmen can attain similar goals.. ur' a-.-aus:-...i..smmw--ewwvmuw VQ--wfwwmn-M B111 Fellows Presldent IanetOif1cer V1cePres1dent Nancy Frsher Secretary Mary Doughty Treasurer.

SCENES FROM "THE BLACK VALISE" One-Act Play Night February ll was the date for the three one-act plays presented under the direction of Kenneth Waterman. Contrast in type heightened the dramatic force of the threerone-act plays to make an extremely pleasant evening of entertainment. "When Shake- speare's Ladies Meet" was a Well-presented comedy in which these heroines met to advise Iuliet on her romance with Romeo. "The Black Valise" was a suspense-filled thriller in which the insane Dr. Nikolov tried to improve life by exterminating most of it. Well executed for audience laughs and enthusiasm was the farce comedy "The Trysting Place." SCENES FROM "THE TRYSTING PLACE" Mona and Clyde. Carl and Patty. Marie and Willie. l74l 75 W. ic-.

Season's Review continuedl Then the Red and Black met their first defeat on the East Waterloo gridiron. Returning home, the Dodgers trampled a strong East Des Moines team. Then they met their second defeat on the field of the Little Cyclones of Ames. The next week the Red and Black were engaged in a championship battle with Mason City-the outcome of that game crowned us undisputed Big Six Champions. In the Charity Game, the Dodgers plowed under Des Moines Tech to end a highly successful season. For the first time in Fort Dodge football history, the Dodgers were unscored upon on their home field.

Football Coach "Connie" Goodman's call for football players was answered by only four returning letterrnen, so the remainder of the 1948 junior college foot- ball team was made up of transfers from other colleges and "greenies." Everyone thought that the junior college was in for a repeat performance of last year's scores when the team dropped the first two games. After the second game, the squad was plagued with injuries, sprains and bruises. The fans' general attitude was that the team had "nothing on the ball." However, for some unknown factor the team became inspired and won the next four games. Mason City snatched the last game. "Making Extra Yards."

Only former high school players and pre- vious squad men turned out for the practice sessions. However, with experience and good coaching, the team became a powerful threat to their opponents. Denny Collins was high scoring man for the year. Bob Etzel was second in scoring. Other men scoring 90 points or more for the season were: Don Blink, Bill Fox, and lack Stewart.

W,..,.....,........-.---- 150 U51 What A Grand Year lt's Been Remember last fall when everyone was bemoaning the fact that almost all of us had eight o'clock classes? Oh, those lucky people who got to sleep late. The girls were welcomed to junior college by a delightful tea given at the home of Miss Bernatz. It seemed as if it rained at every football game, but with the undying spirit of our cheerleaders we rooted for our boys. The junior college council was busy this year and enjoyed two state meetings, one here and the other at Ellsworth junior college. Wasn't it cold the night of the chorus hayride? Some kept warm! And speaking of the choir, the tours were a huge success and a lot of fun, too. "Does anyone know the difference between an icebox and an elephant?" The Fine Arts Festival at Boone gave the Fort Dodge Iunior College a chance to show its talent. We crowned our Iunior College queen at the winter dance at the Wahkonsa Hotel. The spring formal was a gala affair with everyone in a gay mood. Who can ever forget the variety show? It took a lot of work and loads of cooperation, but the result was well worth the effort. The year has been full of activities and happy times, but the Panther will help us remember them always. Again a high school annual is completed, this time the l949 Dodger. Planned and pre- pared by Seniors, this book contains many printed pages back of which is much fun, dis- appointment and Worry. ln my opinion, this year's staff has done an excellent job of co- operating and working toward the same goale a good yearbook. The staffs real thanks is see- ing their Work in print so I'll just say, it's been wonderful, kids: thanks so much. Sincerely, NANCY. I 4 Both the staff of the Dodger and the Panther would like to thank Mr. Culver, our advisor, for all his helpfulness and Willingness in guiding the production of another yearbook. Also We would like to thank Mr. F. G. Weston of the Waterloo Engraving and Service Company: Mr. Walter Merryman of the Messenger Printing Company: and to all the senior photographers for their cooperation in producing our yearbook. NANCY FISHER Editor of the Dodger Bl1.L PETERSON Editor of the Panther Another year and the Panther is here. Pro- ducing the l949 yearbook has taken a lot ot time and a great deal ot Work.

Sincerely, BILL U52
