NURSE EDUCATION Added to the Fort Hays State curriculum in the fall of 1952, a three year program of nurse education is under the direction of Miss Leora Stroup. Fifteen girls and one lone, but extremely popular, male constituted the pioneer class. And, just for fun, here is what happened to a perfectly good public relations man when he volunteered to help Miss Stroup get Judy (who is life-weight, as well as life-size) into bed for a publicity picture, Troy Crowder is the victim; Jack Hunsley the alert photographer. Cheerleaders Dorothy Tokushige, Evelyn Gardi- ner, Joy Mi shier, Billie Bertram, Charlotte Hardin. every man A TIGER A lot of planning goes into school spirit which ends up seeming completely spontaneous. A special tribute is due Ronald Hopkins, who promoted, organized, and executed the booster trip to Topeka for the Washburn game.

Students of 1952-53 will not soon forget the big two-day celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of Fort Hays State. The pageant, " The Fort Hays State Story " was a memorable event— a good show in anybody ' s book. The basketball ballet that brought down the house. The Bloomer Girls were dexterous as well as beautiful. THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION Bea Ward os the Queen of Opportunity in a beautiful ballet iat constituted the epilogue. Representing the aviation cadets of World War II in a class on the campus. Nearly half of the student body had some job to do in connection with the cele- bration, but everyone wearily agreed that it was well worth the effort. A Custer Hall scene of 1926. Buffalo Bill, General Forsyth, Calamity lane, and Wild Bill Hickok stepped right out )f the pages of history. With the haunting accompaniment of the and, the orchestra, and the a cappella ioir, the story of the development of the allege was told to a capacity crowd of iends and alumni of the college. Ronald Gridley as William A. Lewis at a dinner celebrating the college ' s independence from Emporia. Present day students turned back the hands of time to repre- sent a scene at Camp Lewis dur- ing the depression. „ ■ In each scene of the pagent, the spotlight paused for a moment on a tableau of a boy and girl in period costume, engaged in some activity typical of the period the scene was portraying. At the assembly convocation, Miss Anne Laughlin, far left, one of the college ' s most distinguished alums, returned from Washing- ton, D. C. to give an inspiring address. Music was by Mrs. Mildred Albertson New- port, now of Davenport, Iowa, who was a popular entertainer during her college days. Portraits of the four former presidents of the college were unveiled in an impressive ceremony, with students from each man s era returning to do the unveiling. In the afternoon, the two new buildings were officially opened. Below, left, Dean Emeritus Agnew and Mrs. McKenna sit in the luxurious new parlor and discuss the days when they shared many problems when Mrs. McKenna was housemother of Custer and Miss Agnew dean of women. Also shown is some of the tea pouring at the new Applied Arts building. Just below, Joel Moss proudly hands out bulletins to visitors in the new domain. SKifc , , m] Toastmaster Raymond Custer Lois Rarick Cooke Naomi Griffith Mosier Mrs. W. A. Lewis, whose husband was the second president of Fort Hays State. President Emeritus Wooster ' s three daughters were on hand, Martha, Cynthia, and Mary. A male quartet of the late ' 30s provided gayety. President Cunningham and some of the honor guests at the dinner. The three Rarick children and one in-law, Margaret, Lawrence, Lois, and Edmund Cooke. f And on top of all that— HOMECOMING The Queen was Elizabeth Belden, a senior from Beloit. The campaign was a hot one, and the cleverest campaign stunt (see below) did not necessarily insure a winner. The attendants, shown below in the parade, were Mary Anne Willour, Jennie Mayhew, Joy Mishler, and Marianne Rouse. f f 1 Everywhere there were crowds of people— lining the streets to watch the Fort Hays State band leading the parade— filling the stadium for the football game— and packing the Coliseum arena for ths dance, with Tex Beneke ' s orchestra furnishing the music Everywhere you turned, somebody hod put out some sort of o Fiftieth Anniversary banner or symbol. The freshman class thought this one up for in front of the Coliseum. Sigma Alpha lota stuck to a musical theme in their decoration of Miss Felten s house. This was the figment of the imaginations of 50 Wesley Hall girls. The men who live at Wickizers had some energy left over and they used it on this. WICKED The Collegiate 4-H entered this float in the Homecoming parade, which set records in both size and spectators. Hours of labor for a few minutes ' show, but it ' s all a part of Homecoming. Wesley Hall entered an extra- ordinarily beautiful birthday cake. The Engineers ' Club members showed their mechanical bent by pro- ducing this giant steam roller. MORE MEMORIES OF THE HOMECOMING PARADE OF 1952. The Custer Hall float, with Florine Brundage in the featured role. The Newman Club contrasted 1902 and 1952 dress, both on and off the gridiron. This scarcely needs a caption.

Par- ticipation in band concerts both here in Hays and on tour also adds to their year ' s activities. t r 4 PHILIP MARTIN President ORCHESTRA The Hays Symphony Orchestra is made up of outstanding musicians from this part of the state including students and faculty here on the Fort Hays State campus, faculty and students from Hays High School, and also musicians from the surrounding communities.

GAMMA TAD Gamma Tau was established on the Fort Hays Kansas State College campus as a club in the spring semester of 1951. It began functioning as a recognized social fraternity during the following fall semester. Gamma Tau colors are nile green and white, and the fraternity flower is the white carnation.

This year the Tigers were the youngest team in the history of the school. The squad, which averaged eighteen years old, consisted of fifty-five fresh- men, twelve sophomores, seven juniors and three seniors. Coach " Red " Huffman was able to field a fighting team They were in- experienced but made up for it with their determination. The Tigers ' season record was very misleading and did not give a fair picture of the kind of team they had. Although they won only one game and tied two, they gave every team, even the best, a good game. Donald " Rocky " Rorabaugh, one of Huffman ' s sixty-minute men, was named on the All-C.hC, first team " Rocky " is an eighteen-year-old junior from Smith Cen- ter, and has lettered three years here at F.H.5. He has been a sixty-minute man for the last two years and was a starting defensive guard when he came to Fort Hays State in ' 50, Three seniors have ended their college football careers. They are Johnny Roth, Merle Garey, and Earl Minks. Johnny was a three-year letterman from Hays, and spent his three years playing halfback for the Tigers. Merle is a three-year Tiger letterman from Downs He played his first year at Washburn. Merle was a main sparkplug in the Tigers ' defense this year. Earl, from Greensburg, was a sparkling halfback and a good defensive man. With all but the three seniors returning, " Red " has a very promisin g squad for next year. smother an Ichabod 1952 FOOTBALL SUMMARY Fort Hays State 6 7 7 2 7 Pittsburgh State St. Benedict ' s 7 7 13 14 6 Fort Hays State Fort Hays State Fort Hays State Fort Hays State 6 14 0 20 Washburn University Kansas Wesleyan 28 20 49 34 The end of the road!

BASKETBALL 1952-53 Right in the thick contention throughout the season, the Fort Hays State Tigers offered no small surprise to the basketball fans around the C.I.C. After leading the league for several weeks, the Tigers fell short on a disastrous two-game road trip at the close of the season. They managed, however, to turn up with an undisputed second place in the tough conference race. Working with the youngest squad in the conference, Coach Cade Suran depended largely on a foursome of sophomores — Melvin Christensen, Marvin Andrews, Bud Moeckel, and Glen Cooper. The fifth spot in the starting line-up was alternated between Jack Denison, only senio r on the varsity, and Eugene Anderson, junior. In scoring 333 points during the season, Melvin Christensen shattered the school ' s single-sea- son scoring record, set only last season by all-C.I.C. -forward Bob Ziegler. For the first time, a Central Conference tournament was held during the Christmas holidays in Hutchinson. The tournament had no bearing on the final conference standings, but did enable the teams to get some idea of what they would be up against later. At the affair, Fort Hays State was far off its usual standard of play and ended up in third place. Cade Suran had his picture taken with the 1951 trophy when his Tigers won his 100th Cooper and Moeckel head for that all-important bit of leather. victory. FINAL C. I. C.
