O THE continued cooperation and fellowship between
Fort Smith Senior High School and Junior College we
dedicate this book, The Pioneer of 1942. In preparing this
book for publication, your staff made every effort to repro
duce the activities of the past school year without preju-
dice. It is intended to represent every student of each
school. It is our sincere hope that members of both student
bodies and the faculties of both schools will accept this
record of school life as a symbol of unity between FSHS
and JC. To these students and faculty members the Pio-
neer staff expresses deep appreciation of their help in pro-
ducing this book. To one and all we say, "Thanks a lot!
We hope you like it!"

zly basketball team. Ben I. Mayo,

' season with a rousing 24-6 vic-
2-1 6 tory over Van Buren, but man-
7 32 aged to win only two other games
0 0 and gain a tie with Fayetteville.
Only five lettermen retu1'ned for
7 25 the season. All were linemen,
14 12 which left the Grizzlies a good
0 13 forward line, but they were handi-
0 13 capped in the backfield by inexper-
0 12 ience. There were nineteen letter-
men this year and prospects for
39 0 next season are considerably
7 13 brighter.

squad, being both a good tackle
and blocker. His tireless energy

Goldbrick was continually the fifth
man in the oponents' backneld. A
fine blocker and a good line-backer,
he will have a chance next year to

One of the smallest men on the
squad, Jack's speed and fighting
spirit gave him the ability to gain
a letter. "Proud" will be back
next year to add that needed pu'nch
in thc backfield.
"Luty" was the spark plug for
the Bruins during the entire sea-
son and was elected to the all-
statc second team. Grizzly fans
who were on hand for the Russell-
ville game will long' remember his
gallant leadership in the Grizzlies'
Jack could always be counted on
to do his best and his best was
enough to make him a good tackle.
He is fast and tough. Opposing
tackles looked for a hard game from
"Whiskers'l-and got it.
EDDY GILHAM GAMMILL ROSS MOSLEY
SLOAN PUGH EADS H XRRISONI HII I
Smart, alert and powerful, 'tlke'
gave added strength to a great
line. He was a hard worker and a
fine pass receiver who always
seemed to be in the clear. Bill never
gave up and was respected for his
ability to give everything he had.
A pleasant surprise to Bruin
mentors was Sloan, who proved a
valuable asset to the backfield. He
is a good plunger and a fine defen-
sive player. He will be back for
more years of play under the Griz-
A leading contributor to both
the Bruin oifense and defense,
"Stink" was in there to break up
many of the opponents' plays
throughout the season. George has
the qualities of a football great,
and it is too bad he won't be back
next year to bolster the Bruin line.
Forecd out because of a bad knee,
Bills ability earned him a letter
even though he didn't finish the
season. Even after being injured
'tNig" carried on by helping Stu-
dent Manager Claud Kell the re-
mainder of the year.
"Hungry" was one who obeyed
all training rules and was respected
by everyone for his ability. He
could be depended upon to block
when it was needed, and as a center
he just didn't make bad passes.
Vauda knew all the tricks and used
Harlan proved a great asset to
the team in filling a dificult po-
sition. He has qualities that help
make a great football player. The
Bruins can use many players like
f'Grennie." He will be an even
greater asset to the team next
year as a senior.
Claud held down the position of
student manager single-handed. A
fast man with the tape and lini-
ment, he eased the pains of many
Grizzly stalwarts and gave them
that added pep to go back into the
game to win.
One of the heaviest men on the
team, Dick was a devastating
tackler who was feared by every
Grizzly opponent. A sixty-minute
man, he had plenty of sportsman-
ship and contributed much to the
Bruin forward wall. He gained the
admiration of both players and
"Chubby" was two hundred
pounds of terror to every Grizzly
opponent. He was a great blocker
and a sure tackler. He will be back
next year to fill any hole there may
be in the Bruin line.
A sophomore, "Star" promises to
add that extra spark for Coach
Thompson next year. He played a
great game in the backfield, with
that desire to win showing in his
every move. Tommy is fast develop-
ing into an outstanding back.
ELMORE KELL DONOHO GREGG BARRETT
ROWLETT BRISCO DuVALL HOLLAND SCOTT DAVIS
Another of the Bruins' fine backs
was Vernon Rowlett. He helped
out on the scoring end of many
plays and was also a good defen-
sive player. "Dode" will be back to
do his part toward the making of
a winning team next year.
A hard worker and a fine pass
receiver, Brisco was a great blocker
and a smart defensive player and
was admired by fans for his sur-
plus of nerve and blocking power.
He will be back next year, and you
can bet his job will he well done.
S. E. DuVall-"Screwball"
S. E. kept the Grizzlies going
throughout the season. He was pos-
sibly the most generally liked
player on the squad, and he was
a bright spot in the line with his
hard blocking and vicious tackling.
t'Prof" was the quarterback who
constantly showed his prowess as
a field general for the Grizzlies.
His passing arm made him a main-
stay in the baekfield, and he was
also a dependable punter. He will
be back next year.
"Rosebud,' was recognized by
everyone as the Bruin's finest line-
man all season. Although Bobby
suffered a broken finger at the start
of the year, he came back to finish
strong, His brilliant work earned
him a berth on the all-state second
For several years now, "Shifty"
has been a familiar figure at foot-
ball games in Grizzly Stadium. A
loyal supporter of the Bruins, he
is always ready With his first-aid
kit to patch up battered athletes.
Co-ordinating' the FSHS and JC intra-mural program was the intra-mural
committee with Coach Frank Jones as director and Doyle Cole, JC sophomore, as
chairman of the committee. Tommy Daniels and Louis Swofford were Senior High mem-
bers of the group, of which Bill Sengel is the other JC member. Having successfully

Coach John R. Thompson
To Coach Thompson goes the credit
for one of the finest records ever made by
a Grizzly quintet. Through his leadership, the
Grizzlies became district champions and reached
the quarter-finals in the state tournament. In
a twenty-four-game schedule, the Bruins lost
only five tilts. A number of lettermen are due
back 'next year and 1943 should be another
brigth spot in Mr. Thompson's coaching ca-
reer. Both the school and the team are proud to
have a person with his likeableness and ability
fcr their coach.
Summary of the I9142 Season
With five lettermen on deck, the
Grizzlies opened their season with
a 25-22 victory over Ozark. Al-
though the strong Alma Airedales
downed the Thompson clan in their
next start, the Bruins came back
strong to take the next eleven
games, displaying real FSHS spir-
it. They trounced Mansfield, Sub-
iaco, Charleston, and Lavaca twice
each and Muskogee, Ozark, and
Fayetteville once each during this
Alma again proved the jinx,
however, and conquered the 'Griz-
zlies for the second time. Slowed
by the Airedales, the Bears also
lost to Muskogee before coming
back to down Siloam Springs, Ben-
tonville, Greenland, and Fayette-
ville to win the District 1 title.
After two exhibitions with the JC
Lions, the Grizzlies went to the
state tournament and ran up the
highest score of the tourney in the
first round by downing the Pine
Bluff Zebras 73 to 40. They were
eliminated in their quarter-final
game by the Oxford High School

The Grizzlies showed this year what fighting spirit really is! As evidence of this
fact, they won several nip-and-tuck court battles in overtime periods-always displaying
that "never-say-die" spirit that it takes to come out on top. No favorites were played
in choosing starters and the boys knew it. They fought to Win their places in the
line-up and fought even harder to keep them. To the FSHS cagers of thee 1941-42 season
goes the appreciation of the school they so successfully represented.

Liberto became a factor in the
Grizzly oifense near the end of the sea-
son and helped out in tourneys.
S. E. DUVALL-Guard
'tScrewball," a good Hoorman, was
used effectively throughout the season
to stop opponents' scoring.
"Pi'nhead" was little but mighty. He
came into his own near the end of the
season and was a great help.
"Red," a 6 foot-3 inch speedy ball-
hawk, personally accounted for a ma-
jority of the Bruins' over-time wins,
Billy took high scoring honors on a
team that was hard to beat. He was the
spearhead of the Bruin oifense.
Jim's ability and persistence won him
recognition as a dependable basketeer
who always fought hard.
Dural had exceptional ability as a
defensive player and was an excellent
passer. His work was outstanding.
Fastest and smallest man on the
squad, Jack was the high-point man for
the Grizzlies at the district meet,
Tommy was a sophomore eager who
got his start in the last half of the
season and proved his worth as an ex-
pert player on both defense and offense.
He has two more years before him and
undoubtedly will make the most of
HLutie" was a great aid to a great
team. He was second only to Neal in
points scored, despite a foot injury
which kept him out of the first several
games of the season. Without t'Lutie,'l
the Grizzly record would have suffered.
Tommy was o'nc of the best floormen
on the Squad and was continually break-
ing up opponents' plays and keeping
their scoring at a minimum. Tommy will
be back next year to furnish first-line
material for a team that looks like it's
John Was a leading contributor to the
Bruin five throughout the season and
will undoubtedly be a high scorer on the
1943 team. John led the Grizzlies in
their 73-40 victory over Pine Bluff in
the state tournament at Jonesboro.
Donoho Mosley Daniels Holland
Coach Frank Jones
VVith tWo years of work in JC behind him, Coach
Frank Jones has won the respect of all who have helped
to build our sports program. His players respond to his
instruction and each one knows him as a "square shooter."
He rightfully demanded a hustling team that played
for JC and not for individual glory. His ability to demon-
strate as well as to theorize was largely responsible for
his team's ccnsistcnt improvement. Through every tight
spot, the Wisdom of his judgment proved his right to the
post he holds.
As exponents of the college's major spert, Coach
Jones and his Lions deserve the appreciation of every
IQ!-L2 Season Record
Oil' to a slow start when they
were beaten by Wilburton, Arkan-
sas Tech, and Connors Aggies at
the outset, the Lions came to life
against the Bacone Indians for
their first victory. They then drop-
ped 'a pair of contests to the strong
Arkansas freshman quintet before
starting to pile up an impressive
record studded with wins over
such outstanding teams as Okmul-
gee JC, Connors Aggies, North-
eastern Teachers, Muskogee, and
Eastern A. a'nd M., of Wilburton.
As a crowning feature of their
season, the Lions waded through
all competition in the district
AAUW tournament to win that
event and become eligible for the
state meet. Their district final was
against the powerful Lavaca In-
dependents, who had beaten them
twice previously. They downed La-
vaca 64-61 and went on to Con
way, where they lost a hard-fought
battle to Henderson State in the
opening round of the state event.
The Lions proved their right to
wear the Blue and White.

From the starting' five down to the last man on the bench, tho Lions played
hard and played to Win. No team Camo off the floor with a victory over JC without
battling' the full forty minutes against a hustlingr and scrapping' team. Going through a

a respectcd foe among college teams in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

"Glass" could always be counted on
to give his best in every game he play-
ed. An able reserve and a hard worker,
Bill was always ready to do his share.
"Treetop," "the people's choice" and
reserve center, could always be expect-
ed to furnish stellar playing and several
laughs with his court antics.
"Junior" was our major scoring
threat. Coming in at mid-term, he gave
the team the spark which it needed. The
former Alma all-stater was noted for
his accurate two-handed jump shot.
"Chuck" will long be remembered for
his superb passing, dribbling, and
shooting. Always a scoring threat, he
was equally as skilled in defensive work.
"Swishmoreland" joined the Lions in
mid-season and poured plenty of points
through the hoops as the team went
into the home-stretch.
"Whitey," Licn captain, was small,
but Umightyl' was the word. He was a
scrapper from start to finish and was
responsible for ma'ny scores during the
"Red," a Lion star last season, turned
in another year of stellar play this
season. His shooting accurately, guard-
ing closely, and breaking swiftly made
Bill one of our most valuable players.
"Coach" was on the sidelines most of
the year because of injuries. He broke
into the line-up in late-season games,
however, and turned in creditable
"Chas" is the kind of a player who
helps build a great team in any sport.
He will be long remembered for his
scrap and fight.
'fHay" was noted for his pepper and
never-say-die spirit. He Worked hard
and conscientiously, and developed into
a good all-around basketball player.
"Ish" was another recruit who came
in at mid-term. He was one of the most
accurate shots on the entire squad and
was essentially a team player.
"Cliff" was not only a newcomer to
the squad but was also in his Hrst year
as a basketball player. Developing fast,
he put forth hard work and determined
effort which helped in many ways.

Second to win honors in a major intra-mural sport were the Catilinians, who
came out on top in basketball competition. Bolstered by boys who developed ingbo Griz-
zly stalwarts later in the season, the Catilinians edged out the Liberto Independents to
win the crown. Members are: Junior Reed, Elmer Barber, Floyd Davis, Dural Hutche'ns,
and 'Captain Tommy Daniels.
Although intra-murals in major sports for girls have not been organized, 'next
year will probably see them enjoying a program equal to that of the boys. Here is shown
a group ready for action on the basketball court. Through their activities in the Girls'
Athletic Association, the "weaker sex" has shown enough interest to warrant their
own intra-mural sports.
In addition to the many team sports that featured the 1941-42 athletic Year in
FSHS and JC, several contests were staged for individuals. At top left in the picture
below is Eddie Freemon, JC freshman, who won the intra-mural ping-pong champion-
ship. As proof of his ability, Eddie also won the men's singles competition in city-wide
play this spring.
Considered as a "darkhorse" when the tennis tourney began, Harold Cromwell
proved his ranking as a netman when he won the first-semester boys' singles title in
intra-mural play and successfully defended his crown in the second-semester tourney.
His victories lifted him to a par with the varsity letterme'n.
Successful intra-murals require a capable director. JC and FSHS had that per-
son in Doyle Cole. It was Doyle who became entirely responsible for the program
-when Coach Frank Jones left school. His interest in all athletics and his willingness to
work for that interest made him a truly outstanding student. Probably his greatest
asset in directing athletics is his ability to demonstrate as well as to explain.
In the mixed doubles ping-pong tourney, Mary Ella Dietrich shared the spot-
light with Eddie Freemon as the pair took the intra-mural championship. Mary Ella
also continued her winning ways in the city tournament, taking first place in the girls'
division and crowning her achievements by winning the women's title. Dietrich and
Freemon, both outstanding individual players, proved that neitherls game was hin-
dered by playing doubles-a feat that is really diflicult in ping-pong.

The Girls' Athletic Association furthers the athletic program among' the "Weak-
er sex." Members engage in basketball, tennis, volley ball, pingpongr, and other sports
and learn the folk dances of various countries. Through competition in these sports the
girls earn points. With 500 points a member is awarded a letter and with 1000 she
receives 2, sweater.
Sponsored by Mrs. Mary George Martin, the organization meets once a Week
to plan participation in sports. Not only does it provide entertainment for its mem-
bers but it also offers the chance for promotion of good health among the girls.
Officers of the GAA include Geneva Robison, president, Mollie Reed, vice-

During the past several athletic seasons, the work of the cheerleaders has
assumed real importance. With increasing emphasis on our athletic program, cheer-
leaders are 3 necessity in directing mass cheering by the student body and in raising

gridiron, the basketball court, or the cinder path. They are leaders in showing school

The Fort Smith Grizzly band has been, since its organization, one of the most
active groups o'n the campus. This year it was opened to junior college musicians as
well as those from high school. A
One of the outstanding projects of the year was the presentation of a series of
concerts which were planned to promote "American Unity Through Music."
The band members are at all times both willing and able to help organizations
of the city as well as the school, and many times during the past year they have partici-
pated in parades and programs. They were always on hand to add color and variety
to the Grizzly football gamcs through their music and formations.
Both the band and individual members won honors in the annual Bi-State Music
Festival held in Fort Smith March 20.
Howard Curtis aided Dirrctor Addiscn Wall as student director and Tom Payne

Sock and Buskin Play ,
Sock and Buskin produced this year a play in which all of the cast came from
within the organization itself. With the combined talents of Senior High and JC drama-
tists available, Sock and Buskin chose the 1937 Pulitzer Prize play "You Can't Take
It With You."
Under the direction of Miss Margaret Montague, these players proved their abil-
ity by turning in a performance that will long be remembered as a highlight in Fort
Smith amateur d1'amatic Work. The production of the play also marked a definite
advance in the promotion of a closer unity between Senior High and JC.

IQ!-L2 Senior Class Play
Dramatists of the senior class of 1942 chose "Death Takes a Holiday," by Alberto
Casella, as their entertainment feature. A single cast, under the direction of Mrs.
Malcolm Lawrence, presented the play May 8 in the senior high school auditorium.
There were thirteen speaking' parts in the production, which was rewritten by Walter
Ferris for the American stage and which first appeared in New York in 1929. It later
enjoyed a long' run on Broadway and was recently made into a motion picture.
The setting' was a Duke's castle in Italy where guests unexpectedly met "Death"
in the form of a mortal, Prince Sirki, when he spends a three-day holiday at the
fln order of appearancej

Grizzly trackmen displayed their talent in only three meets this season but
made creditable showings in all of them. Opening their season in a triangular meet
with Fayetteville and Van Buren, the Bruins won by a wide margin. Two weeks later
they successfully defended their district 1 crown against Cinder-path artists from four
Northwestern Arkansas high schools. They went on to take a second place in the state
meet at Little Rock, finishing behind the Little Rock Tigers.
James Mosley was the leading' scorer for the Grizzlies, piling up 54M points in
the three meets. The 880-yard relay team, composed of Allen Bramlette, Bill Eads,
Sammy Hauert, and Mosley set a new district record in that event and also won first
lionors at the state meet.
Grizzly Golf and Tennis
Steve Creekmore Jr., 1941 let-
terman fshown at right with put-
terb, again won a place on the Griz-
zly golf team, and a newcomer to
varsity play, Rufus Joyce fhold-
ing flagj, earned the No. 2 posi-
tion. They represented FSHS in
the state meet at Arkadelphia early
in May and participated in clual
matches with other high school
These two took the top berths
by placing first and second, respec-
tively, in an eighteen-hole tourn-
ament conducted by Coach Ben I.
Mayo and participated in by some
25 candidates. The tourney this
year was conducted as a part of
the regular intra-mural program.
Competition among- Grizzly tennis team candidates was keen this spring with more than a
dczen boys fighting it out for the four varsity berths. Athletic Director Ben I. Mayo, assisted
by Doyle Cole, coached the 1942 netmen. Principal meets in which the squad participated this spring
were the four-state tourney at Tulsa, the Arkansas high school meet and other dual meets. Squad
members were: front r0w: Jimmy Harmon, Bobby Hawkins, George Jackson, and Billy Espyg back
row: Louis Swofford, James Mosley, Junior Reid, Harold Cromwell, Fred Van Hook, and Bill Cook.
FSI-IS Student Officers
Roy Fox and Betty Lee Lantz served as student body president and vice-presi-
dent, respectively, during the first semester and both made creditable records. Roy
spent many hours planning' school activities and several special observances, "Get
Acquainted Week" being a notable example. Both Roy and Betty Lee did excellent jobs
of presiding at assemblies and of representing FSHS at conventions of the Arkansas
and Southern associations of student government.
Second semester political activity resulted in the election of President Dick
Gregg and Vice-President Richard Martin. Greg'f,r made the morning announcements an
interesting feature, presided at assemblies and Student Council meetings, and enlisted
the help of Martin in his efforts to improve student government. Richard effectively
filled the "prexy's" shoes when necessary and was an active promoter of FSHS

It was this body of students that directed the student activities of the junior
college. They were the ones 'tbehind the scenes" who promoted entertainments and
directed the task of making the year the best possiblefscholastically and sociallyt

C P T One of the biggest contributions Fort Smith Junior College has made
' ' ' to our war effort is its program of Civilian Pilot Training. In co-
operation with the Civil Aeronautics Administration, JC's quota for the fall and spring
sessions was twenty men in each class. This training equips enrollees for becoming
flyers in the armed service or for positions as instructors. Many boys already are
carrying a share of their country's defense program in the aviation field. To the past
and present groups in CPT we say "Keep 'em Flying!"
