In this book are recorded the 1948-49 school days
-the good and the bad-the serious and the gay.
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.
. . . though the Seniors
of '49 leave with some
reluctance, they look
toward the future with
anticipation. With am-
bition and energy their
can attain similar goals..

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."

The 1948 track squad was captained by Sam Camamo and won many
events during the season. Dick Ewen, one of the most outstanding sprinters
that Fort Dodge has ever had, captured third place in the 220-yard race at the
State Teachers Relays. Dodger runners, Camamo, Seltz, Tracy, and Ewen,
iinished in fourth place in the 440-yard relay at the same meet and won third
place at the Drake Relays.
In the Little Cyclone Meet at Ames, the trackmen established two records:
the 440- and the 880-yard relays. Dodgers also won the mile relay champion-
ship. The Big Seven Meet saw Gerald Chingren of the Dodgers take first place
in the pole vault and Don Hensley capture runner-up position.

The Student Council had an eventful year, under the competent direction
of Forrest Bailey. They played host to the other junior college student councils
in the annual state meeting. The council sponsored the spring and winter
iormals and the election of the junior college queen and her attendants.
Kenneth Butzier was vice-president and Rita Ruebel secretary.
With Clarice Coppinger, president, Helen Feelhaver, vice-president, cmd
Bev Carlson, secretary cmd treasurer, the Sigma Alpha Phi Sorority had a very
eventful year. The first excitement of the year was the tea given by the women
of the faculty. This was followed by the candle-light initiation, a potluck, a
Christmas party, a Valentine dance, and a night in the gym. The final event
of the year was the MotherbDaughter Tea.

"The Importance of Being Earnest"
was a stylized farce and a literary
classic. It Was described as a
trivial comedy for serious people.
As the play Went on, the situation
was getting more complicated, but
in the end everything turned out
for the best.

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.

No returning lettermen answered Coach Townsend's call for the 1948-49
junior college basketball session. 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.

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
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.
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.
Editor of the Dodger
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. This year's staff
although inexperienced, quickly assumed re-
sponsibility, and in the end everything seemed
to turn out fine. l Want to thank the cheerful and
hardworking staff l had and everyone who
helped put this year's Panther in print.
