FOX HIGH SCHOOL
- - ARNOLD, MISSOURI
PUBLISHED BY THE HA-KO STAFF OF FOX HIGH
The drama of a high
ln the pages to follow, the drama of a high-school year unfolds in all its
humor and pathos. Here you will see the people as they are, as they live. You
will see the joy on their faces as the Thunderbirds cheer the team on to victory
and the tears in their eyes when the Warriors lose. You will feel the twist beats
at the Christmas Dance. The classrooms, the organizations, the back of the bus
on the way to basketball games--all these play a part.
This year, in particular, is a memorable one for Fox High students because
there is the constant thrill of seeing our future building grow to completion be-
fore our very eyes. The lack of a football field has caused some interesting
complications--notably a Homecoming game played away from home--but this
year the Music Department started a tradition with the highly successful Pop
,school year unfolds . .
Fox High students have never been at a loss for an activity. Coupled with
new organizations, like the Chess Club, are the older, time -tested activities--
FTA, PNA, Thunderbirds, Spanish Club, and the competitive teams. The
typical student has the chance to run himself ragged if he chooses to do so. Fox
High is an action school.
This book is people. The games and organizations played a major part, but
it was the people who made this year the success that it was. Look through these
pages, and the people stand out as Fox High School.
The name HA-KO refers to the Indian word for "Inter-tribal good will." The
1963-64 HA-KO will try to depict this spirit as the dominating force in our

Well organized library is result
of careful planning.
Ever look and look for a particular book and never
seem to be able to pick it out? Fox High students
are seldom faced with this problem because of the
excellent library staff. They know the location of
almost any book you need and add a pleasant smile
to their services. The girls take their mornings,
study halls, and evenings to work at tasks found
in the library.

views with Fox High teachers .
By teaching in grade school classes during
their study halls, junior and senior members
obtained first-hand experience at teaching.

Take a school like Fox, in a community like

dedicated boys Working hard for the improve-

the spirit is embodied in the Key Club, an
organization sponsored by Kiwanis. They meet
every Monday night to discuss plans for future
projects. The main event of the year was the

"Kings fight for their lives on battlefields"
Heads peer over shouldersg tension mounts to breath-taking heights . One move,
then another. "Check! " Factions rally to the support of their favorite. An endangered
king sneaks out a back way, and half the spectators sigh in relief. The actual
participants have nothing to say . Both are engrossed in the planning of attack, the
strategy, the narrow escapes. "Checkl " Again the game moves toward a climax. One
player looks worried, then resigned .
"Mate! " And it's all over. The watchers
dissolves into the background, to finish
the games they left. So go Monday
nights for Chess Club members. The
expectation at the beginning of a game,
the satisfaction or well-you -can't-win-
them-all at the end. But win or lose,
the players gained skill and enthusiasm
with every game .
Sponsored by Mr. Thomas and Mr .
Smith, the group looked forward to
matches with the clubs of near-by
schools, in addition to intramural
games. A new organization, the Chess
Club promises more and even better
- goings -on in future years .

Planned Progress analyzes educational needs.
For the first time since 1959, Fox High School's Planned Progress group won first
place in the county meet, held at Northwest High School in December.
A novel approach was lent to the presentation this year. Instead of the usual straight
speeches, Fox's group decided to express itself by means of a parody on Thornton
Wilder's "Our Town." Using slides and dialogue, the needs of the educational system
of the C-6 district were given at a dinner in competition with four other area schools:
Northwest, Crystal City, Festus, and DeSoto.
The award for the group's outstanding presentation was a prize of S100 and a chance
to compete in the district Planned Progress tournament later in the year.

Debate members develop logical thinking.
The timekeeper holds up the card marked y
"8, " and the first speaker nervously shuffles
his notes. He begins to talk. As the hour
preceeds and the four people take their turns
at the lecturn, tension builds . Then the final
rebuttal has been made, and it's suddenly over.
Now comes the agonized Waiting for the results.
The Winners are announced, and the drama is
finished. Finished, that is, until the next
tournament. Between times, the Fox High
debate tea m is kept busy with new evidence,
new arguments, and old-fashioned hard work.
There's no doubt about it--the tiredest, hardest-
working people in the whole school during the
months of january through April are the
debaters. At night their noses are buried in
the latest magazines and newspapers. Their
mornings are spent in the library copying
evidence, and afternoons are filled with
practice debates or tournaments. There you
have the Fox High debater . Working himself to
death--and loving every minute of it.

Grease paint and glory cover thespians
The play is over. Lights are dim. The
scenery stands lonesomely in its place yearn-
ing for a production . In the corner lie
wrinkled scripts covered with long-forgotten
notations and directions, their owners having
gone on to new roles .
Such is the atmosphere after a drama club
production. Morose actors sadly remember
past productions but jump anxiously into new
comedies, tragedies or farces .
This year found the drama club working
excitedly on two plays, a mystery entitled
"Drums in the Night" and an Irish skit called
"Mrs . Maloney's Affliction." For the first
time, student directors were given the
chance to try their wings at casting, blocking
and costuming a play.
"Affliction, " as it came to be called,
concerned the confusion created when one
woman, somewhat hard of hearing, spread
rumors about one of the town's most respected

"A" Band provides musical entertainment.
In his second successful year, Mr. C. K. Correll
has employed many new and interesting methods.
These include the Pop Concert, new musical selec-
tions, half-time shows at the football games, and of
cour se the Spring Concert. The bands under his
direction have grown and blossomed to full flower.
For instance, the exacting performance of the
Concert Band at the Pop Concert was excelled by the
Spring Concert. All the band members agree that
without Mr. Correll, the band could never have be-
come so successful.

Concert Choir creates melodious sounds.
The Concert Choir is composed of students in
terested in music in general and singing in par-
ticular. Its members chosen by audition, the
group is one of the most popular in school and
performs at many activities. It has participated
in assemblies, some of which are specifically
about music, at commencement, in the Spring
Concert, and the Pops Concert.

Glee Club and Mixed Chorus blend voices.
"One, six, four, five, one!" Each day the Mixed Chorus and the Glee Club members
warm up their creaky vocal cords, then launch into their varied numbers. These
groups, composed of freshman students and upperclassmen girls, respectively, blend
their voices in songs ranging from Christmas carols to light popular music. They
were in constant preparation for the Spring Concert and other performances. At the
First Annual Pop Concert, the Girls' Glee Club sang with the newly-formed Stage
Band, and performed well. The Glee Club earned admirable ratings at the Music Fes-
tival at Cape Girardeau, and also provided entertainment for the student body at the
Christmas Program. Under the direction of Mr. David Butler, these groups made
excellent impressions on all who heard them, and gave some stiff competition for the

From the first swinging open of doors on and early September day, Fox High has
vibrated with the vigorous living and working of its students .
After the first confusion, just as the world stopped spinning again, the athletes
charged to the front of pupil consciousness. Their hardy appearances and tough play-
ing kept all eyes upon them as they fought through the season. From the stands,
throughout the year, audiences gave their "all. " Girls screamed wildly and catapulted
into the air at each tactic. Grunts alone shot from male throats whether they "knew
Fox could do it!" or the sentiments were less pleasant. Twirling gaily and shouting
above the din, cheerleaders made patterns of color and life. Every team played felt
the full sting of Warrior action. None of the games, even those with a losing score for
Fox, left Warrior watchers disappointed. Football players fought with a hard, rough
spirit, the basketball teams played with whirling, twirling, dribbling, skill.
"B" team football players excelled this year--For them the turnout was as full of
anticipation and excitement as for any professional team . Their undefeated season is
cause for the pride Fox High feels.

The gaiety of Carnival Time, of lights, of
color, of youth . . .
Homecoming, as always, opened with a vibrant yell for victory. Committees formed
dissolved, formed again, and somehow, through all the fun, floats were built, curtsies
practiced, and the weekend melted away.
PTA Carnival time was bright and profitable. Two one-act plays, a talent show, and
numerous games netted new athletic equipment.
Throughout the year, the candidacies for various coronations resulted in the usual
flurries of breathless "Can-I-have-a -note-to -get -out -of-class-to -make-posters-
thanks." Each season tingled with expectancy as the dance settings drew emotions to
new heights. Lace clouds of dresses billowed over the floor and the evenings were
punctuated with soft, good laughter. Coronations were dimly -lighted ceremonies as
lovely queens bowed and smiled amid applauding crowds. The informal Ha-Ko party
theme of "Sock Stomp" required all attending to wear socks, preferably decorated,
and to dance without shoes .
Renewed flat scenery, decreased supplies of grease paint, and stage -frightened
actors were only some results of the three plays presented in the course of a year.
And so it went.
All these are but a few of the 1963-64 high points. Oh, there were many more--as
many, perhaps, as there were individuals to make them, but these are some of the

From the many junior and senior girls who had hoped to become cheerleaders,

represent them on the var sity cheerleading squad.

and can still manage to straighten his back

support their team. Look at these

them lose by a small margin of

The fine coaching done by Coach
O'Connor resulted in a hard-fighting
varsity football squad for the 1963 sea-
son. Coach O'Connor is a major factor
in the outstanding sportsmanship displayed
at every game. He hasn't spared any
effort to improve the team, and his work
has been rewarded by an increase in team
strength every year.
The hard direction by Coach Iman
really paid off as he coached the 1963
"B" football squad to a successful season
with no losses. This record-breaking
year was the result of Coach lman's
skills and techniques and the strong en-
thusiasm shown by all the players.

coach, Mr . Iman . Driving from one
victory to the next with fervor and
enthusiasm, the team members constructed

Now's the time to relax
Homecoming is a wild weekendg it is, of course, a time of joy and heavenly
exhileration, but it is more, too. Homecoming is a time of tension, and a time of
feeling that beating Wellston on this one brilliant afternoon is more important than
crisis, or flood, or drought. Homecoming is an axis on which the fall swings and the
outcome of two hours often sets the remainder of autumn's mood. Homecoming is a
period of relifeg it is the joy of first quarter's end and the sadness of football's end and
the feeling that nothing should ever end. Homecoming is all the happiness and let down
and fun and disappointment in all the lives of all the people anywhere. Homecoming is
a release, an emotion. It's knowing that somewhere in the vastness of life are people
in exact precision with all your being, an overwhelming number of people, and that in
this one moment you stand warmly in the midst of all of them. And Homecoming starts
Friday night. On the chat by the new school was a mound of wood. Flitting in the
dark, silhouettes, danced around it for hours. They darted and dipped. A scream of
pure delight ripped from the throats of many as the leaping, running forms played
crack-the -whip dangerously near the warm orange
ribbons. A sizzle and odor of hot dogs and marsh-
mallows rose as these roasted in the flames till the
very last tired freshman turned to leave.
Float judgings early the next morning gave
triumphant glows to senior faces--At last, and in
the most important year, the class of '64 created a
winning float. Juniors who had boasted the surety of
their win turned away, still muttering, "OURS was
better. Ours WAS better. Gurs was BETTER!"
And the tearing thrill of the game, the crunching
teeth of mounting tension, movement in spurts, and
then stillness on the field. The color of the crowd,
the dust of the field choking throats, the roars and
lulls in excitement. A close loss, heartbreaking, the

Thunderbirds are shouting feverishly. The girls play
for everything they're worth, and with Fox High girls,
that's quite a lot. People watch the game, little
realizing the efforts that are behind this show of
skill. For into every game goes the most grueling
practice imaginable. Night, after night, day after
day, the girls work hard at serving, volleyball,
spiking--anything to make them better team-mates.

that they are on the way to a championship -quality

of each player. But do you give up? just ask them.
They'll look at you as if you were crazy. No, one of
the main qualities of the Fox High volleyball player is
her pride in her sport. So, when, the morning of a
game dawns, she may be too shaken up to eat her
breakfast, but she loves it. These are some of the
things the spectator knows little or nothing about as
he watches the Fox High volleyball team go through
its paces. He sees only the grace, the expert ball-
handling of the players as they lead the Fox High name
to another victory. He sees only the end product of
many hours of hard labor. But this end product is

A volleyball game? It's many things to
many people. It's excitement for some,
exhilaration for others, and perhaps hard
work for still others. For the spectator it's
pride and anxiety and enjoyment. For the
participant, it's fear and work and tension,
yet an even deeper satisfaction than that of the
spectator. Locker rooms, afternoon warm-
ups, hardwood floors, high nets--this is a
volleyball game. It's hard inflated balls,
flying high over the outstretched hands of
teammates. It's crowds cheering, points
piling up, enthusiasm sky-rocketing, girls
hoping against all hope that the next play will
bring added points to their team. It's cokes
and candy bars, heartaches and handsprings,
bands and buses. But most important, a volley-
ball game is people. People are, and always
will be, the keynote in any activity that Fox
High students take part in. A volleyball game
is people .

Like their varsity sisters, the "B" volley-
ball team worked hard to attain the year's
success. They, too, spent their afternoons
practicing the basic elements of the game,
and they, too, possess the great potential of
the "A" team. Being more or less junior
members of the more expert team, the "B"
team provides the varsity with many of its new
players. They play against the "B" teams of
the conference schools that the "A" team
plays. Although their record is perhaps less
successful than that of the varsity team, the
girls brought honor to their school. Their
record of sportsmanship is a credit to the Fox

Then he tries again. All the money
went toward the purchase of new
athletic equipment--outdoor basket-
ball goals, volleyball nets and track
equipment. Money from the games,
the cake-walk, the one-act plays, and
talent show also helped buy the foot-
ball and volleyball teams new uni-
forms. The 1963 Fox High Carnival
was all in fun, however. People
spent money, won little stuffed
animals, and had a ball. In the
talent show, teachers sang, seventh
graders played the piano, and a girl
had her first date. The one -act
plays drew crowds, keeping them in
suspense or in laughter. After every
one had had his fill of soda and pop-
corn, he settled down to see Miss
Liz Morgan crowned queen. From
an atmosphere of mad gaiety, the
scene abruptly switched to one of
formal pageantry. Girls floated
down the white runner in long
formals, escourted by young men in
black suits and ties. After the
crowning, those attending danced

The I964 basketball season.
Look back on the season and try to decide. Was
the season really a success? Was it worth all the
work and worry that went into it? If you think back
carefully and consider everything, you will cer-
tainly decide that it WAS worth every ounce of
strength expended. If you want solid, concrete
proof, look at the record. The "A" team War-
riors ranked near the top in the conference, with
a five and two record, Only once did the number
of defeats exceed the number of victories. As a
general rule, we were defeated by narrow mar -
gins, and we won by many points. This definitely
indicates the high quality of the Warriors . In
tournaments, too, a formidable record was racked
up. Opponents in the Hillsboro, Potosi, and Flat
River tournaments feared to come up against the
hard-driving Warrior five. For those desiring
even further proof, look at the untarnished rec-
ord of sportsmanship, Even in the rare defeats,
the Warriors showed good character and self-
control, The conclusion is inevitable: the War-

One big difference between Fox High
and other schools is the fact that Fox
High expects its "B" basketball team to
attain the same outstanding record as
their "A" team. This year, as in pre-
vious seasons, the "B" team has come
very near equalling the varsity stand-
ards. Their conference tally was four
and three, narrowly missing the score
of their varsity team mates. The sea-
son was one of brilliant victories and
piercing defeats . It was a series of ex-
tremes, with very few "moderate"
games . The "B" team either elated the
spectators with twenty-point victories,
or thrilled Thunderbirds with close-
scored overtimes. Overall, the season
was proudly successful.

He looked out over the court. Around him were his friends, the Fox High basket-
ball team. He felt a warm surge of pride because he was one of them. Falling into
reminescence, he began to ponder the events that had led to what was now an efficient
fighting machine. Alt has all started a long time ago, last fall. He remembered the
first day he had tried out for the team. His muscles had ached for days! Next came
the squad cuts . Every day he had watched anxiously in fear that he might be dropped .
Then came the morning when he learned that he had been accepted as a varsity team
member. Of course, his joy gave way to hours and hours of hard work. Getting to
know the new coach and what he expected, evaluating his own weaknesses and correct-
ing his faultsf-these factors made a sum equaling a championship -quality team.
After the initial practice came the games. "Blood, sweat, and tears?" You bet! Rac
ing with all his strength down the court, stealing the ball from the hands of a perspir

images of tied scores in an overtime, tension during a decisive free shot--all in-

Winning Homecoming Float
Four years of active participation by the 1964
graduating class have greatly enriched the culture
of Fox High. This class has been outstanding in all
fields, scholastic and extracurricular. From the
opening moments of their freshman year, these stu-
dents have joined projects With a notable enthusiasm.
Seniors have been leaders in scholarship, speech,
drama, sports, music, and the arts. Meriting
attention is the leadership ability of this class.
Top percentages on the rolls of honor and in all
areas of endeavor characterize the graduating class
Dances of beauty and grace, and meetings of effi-
ciency due to the introduction of the secret ballot by
this class are only a small portion of the contribu-

Wake up, and you're a Juniorg wake up, and you find yourself in the middle of one of
the best years of your life . The junior class was the same as the other classes, in that
it studied, laughed, lived, cried, yet different in that it had a changing feeling about it .
Last year they were just part of the crowdg next year they'll be the honored Seniors.
The routines of high school life took on new excitement, in preparation for the big
year ahead. Although they had the same term papers, the same semester tests, the
same science projects of the preceeding two years, there was the feeling that this year
was better than the last . An atmosphere surrounded the Juniors--a spirit of enjoyment
of the present, with anticipation of the future. This spirit took on many faces . The
ordering of rings, the first Prom, applying at some of the colleges and trade schools--
these were some of the forms this mood assumed . The year was fun, the year was
work, the year was good. The juniors rose to the problems that appeared, and turned
them into advantages . They made the whole school proud to have them a part of it.
Their Prom was a fitting farewell to the graduating Seniors . The year of 1963-64 was a
great year for the Juniors, and they made it that way .

Sophomore boys play a spirited game of ping pong
during their lunch hour.
The second year slowly turns,
from autumn to May, and the Fox
High sophomores find their high
school years melting away before
their very eyes . The freshman days
are long past and almost forgotten,
and the business of passing the new
and harder courses has consumed
their energies for the time being.
Ahead lie the junior and senior
activities and studies, the joys and
sorrows of a so-far-away-yet-jush
out-of-reach graduation day that
looms in the future two years hence .
But, for the most part, the future is
left to its own designs . For the
sophomores, it is the PRESENT that
rests heavy on their shoulders, or
laughs gaily across the gym. The
Fox High sophomores are the
mainstay of the school--the ones
who will be representing us for the
next two years in the many available

Weathering all the seemingly im-
possible homework, the teasing of upper-
classmen, and their amazement at really
crowded halls, this class has advanced.

ready to lead . They are eager to con-

Freshmen seemed so much smaller than
the rest of the students . They had a
youthful glow, an expectancy. Perhaps
bewildered somewhat at first by newer
problems, now the Freshmen belong.
They--all of them--become a part of all

taken on stature. Look! The Freshman
Class is almost grown-up.
