BERRY Superintendent of Schools I wish to take this means of expressing my deep appreciation to all parents, teachers, and pupils who have co-operated so whole-heartedly and worked so tirelessly to make this school year so very pleasant: and as we pass into the next school year and the long years to follow, I sincerely trust that you will find that true and lasting happiness which comes only through service and a knowledge of work Well done. Sincerely, G. G. Berry Page Nine Page Ten Aligh sczmz sw Although Yale has always favored The Violet's dark hue: And the gentle sons of Harvard To the crimson rose are trueg We will own the white Carnation And honor it aright: While the high school stands defender Of the navy blue and white. Through the four long years of high school Midst the scenes we love so well And the mystic charms of knowledge We vainly seek to spell: Or we win athletic victories On the football field with might, Still we stand for dear Galena, And the navy blue and white. When the cares of life o'ertake us, Mingling fast our locks with gray, Should our dearest hopes betray us, False fortunes fall our way- Still we banish care and sadness As we turn our memories' sight, And recall those days of gladness 'Neath the navy blue and white.

Page Eleven l?l SENIORS On September 14, 1936, there entered eighty-six boys and girls wanting to gain the knowledge that only high school could give them. We were fortunate enough to gain the sponsorship of Miss Dorotha Senter and Mr. Dan Abbey. Although we were just green "freshies," we had the privilege of seeing one of our classmates, Betty Benton, crowned Carnival Queen. During our sophomore year there were not many important events. We elected the following officers: President, Gerald Martin: Vice-President, Betty Shaefferg Secretary, Juanita Overstreet: Treasurer, Margie Alleng Reporter, Marie Breden. We chose blue and gold as our class colors, and the violet as our class flower. Our junior year was Hlled with many memorable events. Our class Won the reputation of being very active, and we had the privilege of seeing Helen Oyler elected Queen of the "Blue and White." On November l7, 1938, our class play, "Cheerio, My Deariof' was given with great success. On the fifth of May We entertained the Seniors at the Junior-Senior Banquet. During this year we elected the following officers: President, Gerald Martin: Vice-President, Olin Shetleyg Secretary, Helen Oyler: Treasurer, Paul Gaskin: Reporter, Helen Rohrbough. Now we have reached the first step in gaining our goal, our commencement. To direct us through this last year we elected these officers: President, Olin Shetleyg Vice-President, Gerald Martin: Secretary, Margaret Qualls: Treasurer, Paul Gasking Reporter, Marie Breden: Cheer leaders, Margaret Fowler, Bob Summers. This year we have presented aivery successful play, "Nuts and Bolts," given Ap-ril 18, 1940. To the juniors go our thanks for a very lovely banquet.

They could not have done so without the guidance of their captains, commonly known as teachers. The class did not enter enthusiastically into the contests until their junior year. They made an excellent showing in the annual contest, with Louise Moyer as the attractive queen candidate from the junior class. The class play, "The Blundering Herd," was presented on December 8 and was well received by the audience. The most attractive event of the year was the Junior-Senior Banquet. The seniors will remember this banquet, because of the nice way they were enter- tained by the juniors. Many of the boys took an important part in the athletic games, while the girls took their usual stand in the other departments. The class officers of the junior year are: President, Charles Hamilton: Vice- President, Prank Tryon: Treasurer, Joe Cagle: Secretary, Marjorie Bennett: Reporter, Wayne Largent: Cheer leaders, Kenneth Murphy and Helen Messer.

H. S. By winning the ticket selling contest for the "Streamlined Dixie Rev- elers," they succeeded in gaining the respect of the other classes. The members of the freshman class have been active in the music organizations and in sports. They sold annuals diligently for their Queen, Marjorie Davis.

Witla the enthusiasm of honors at the 1939 Fiesta, the conndence of a summer of hard training, and hopes for top rating, the drum corps began its fall work. Through heat, dust, hurry, and excitement this unit took first prize at West Mineral. They received special compliments for the buglers. Despite minor catastrophies, such as loss of hats, arguments, and car trouble, the girls added a second place to their list at Jasper. , Mr. Scoville combined the band and drum corps for an eight-y-five' piece unit to escort our queen candidate to the Coal Festival at Pittsburg. Many were the tired backs and sore feet, but still greater in number were the compliments and admiring glances from the bystanders on the streets and at the stadium. Their crowning glory followed. At 2 o'clock one Monday morning, forty- five girls were packed into the school bus and started on their journey to the American Royal at Kansas City. For once they arrived on time, even after losing their way several times. After parading in the contest, they were transported by street car to the American Royal building where they were asked to give a special drill. After being proclaimed first in the state of Kansas, they played for the entire group of bands and drum .corps to march out of the arena. Sight seeing, souvenir shopping, and a performance at the President Hotel ended the day. Tired, but happy and proud, the girls got into the bus for the ride home, ' Their reward was the beautiful plaque now on display in the trophy case in thehigh school auditorium. This year"s Fiesta will be the next goal for which to strive. They hope to make this their crowning performance of the year. Page Thirty Gif Buch row-E. Hill. Edmonds, M. Murray, Armstronir. Oyler.

ORCHESTRA The Galena High School Orchestra has made steady improvement in size and ability in the last year, and it is at the present time playing many of the larger orchestrations. The activities of this group have been numerous. They are always ready to give a number at any chapel program or other entertainment.

The high standard of excellence which it has attained is partly due to the aid of the Band Mothers' Club which has helped in buying instruments and music. In their hrst contest at Chelsea, Oklahoma. the band won second honors. The band was also a part of the unit that accompanied our candidate for Coal Queen to Pittsburg. At the Miami Band Festival. made up of bands from the Tri-State district. the band received superior rating. Several members received medals for playing in the Tri-State Band. In the Music Festival at Altamont, the band received an excellent rating.

Olin Shetley served as president throughout the school year. The purpose of this committee was to prepare all assembly programs and take full responsibility in preparing them. This was accomplished only through the cooperation of the student body and the faculty. The committee had very good success in securing the help of the students and wishes to take this opportunity to thank the members of the student body for their cooperation which made possible the preparation of all the assembly programs.

The team won six games. tied one. and lost only three. During the season they piled up a total of 106 points, while opponents crossed the double chalks only three times. The team led off with a loss. Although Galena played quite as hard and gained as much ground as did Quapaw. they came out on the small end of a 7-0 score. All the Bulldogs saw action in the rain. which lasted the entire game. However, seven days later. Galena made a comeback as they romped all over Carl Junction to make a score of 32-0. The backfield took turns making touchdowns. Next week. the Bulldogs received a thorough test of their stamina as Arcadia invaded the home field. The only score of the game came when a long pass to Gaskin in the first quarter won the game for Galena. After that the battle surged back and forth in the middle of the field. This was the only defeat suffered by Arcadia during the entire season. The team took the first conference game easily. Galena rolled up a score of 20-0 as they played in Edna's territory the entire game.

After the kickoff three passes made the first counter for Galena: the second came just before the half. making the score 13-0 against Chetopa. In the fourth quarter. Shaw ran 63 yards for a touchdown. and when Galena was declared "offsides," you should have seen his face. Extending their winning streak. the Bulldogs trounced McCune. 19-2. The invaders were the first team to strike back with a score in live games. Galena invaded the Grizzlies' den thirteen days later. but came home with a scoreless tie after Altamont had spiked three juggernaut drives. Rain, mud. and a fortunate pass enabled Oswego to hand Galena their first conference defeat of the season. Late in the first quarter a long pass gave Oswego the game. In the third quarter the Bulldogs pushed the Indians back on their heels to score a safety. Still staggering from the blow received the week before, Cvalena was caught off-balance by thc Baxter Tornadoes. who slipped one across in the second period. The Bulldogs made two sustained drives down the field but couldn't make the final push to break the 6-0 score. The Bulldogs finished the season at Mineral with a victory. With mostly seniors playing. Galena rolled up fourteen points on a slick. muddy field. The Bullpups, under Coach Stonecipher, marked up an un-defeated, un-tied. un-scored-on record in the three games they played. They defeated Carl Junction. both here and there, and also Picher on their home field. Page Forty l Twin Valley Conference Track Champions Since the annual was sent to press before the track season was completed, we give a summary of the 1939 track season in this issue of the Blue and White. The Galena track and field team of 1939 climaxed its most successful season in several years. The Bulldogs showed their ability by walking away with the first place trophy at the annual Twin Valley Conference meet held ar Galena. Galena finished first with 6015 points. Oswego finished second with 52W points, and our neighbors at Baxter Springs were third with 17 points. There were thirteen conference records broken and seven stadium records were established. The Galena tracksters finished with a strong second place at the second annual County High School meet at Columbus. Columbus came out with 77 points and the Bulldogs finished with 6lVg points, while Baxter. in third place, gathered 17 points. Galena was well represented at the Pittsburg Class A. Invitational meet. The Bulldogs also placed well at the Coffeyville In- tation meet. They placed fifth in stiff class A competition, coming out ahead of Columbus, the winner of the county meet. The Bulldogs went to the State Regional meet at Pittsburg. and there qualified in several events for the State meet. Those who qualified were Russel in the half mile. Johnson in the 220 yard dash. Fieandt in the javelin throw. the 880 relay team. and the medley relay team. The Galena tracksters did not compete in the State meet, The Bulldogs started their season with a victory over Carl Junction in a dual,meet there. Galena piled up 78 173 points. while Carl Junction scored 26 273 points. As the season advanced, Galena scored a victory over Seneca and Mineral in a triangular meet. and Weir in a dual meet. The Bulldogs are planning to compete in both the Kansas Relays and the State meet this year.

The Bulldogs won seven of eighteen games, losing four by less than three points. Engng the tournament the cagers lost two games, one by one point, the other y ve. 'The Bulldogs kept all their opponents on their toes and chewing their finger- nails during the entire season, they never gave up. The squad had several obstacles to conquer this year. They lost three weeks of practice when Old Man Winter took possession of the gym. When the gym be- came habitable again, an epidemic of flu cut into the ranks. Shaw, our flashy forward, was out of competition for four weeks and nearly three-fourths of the squad got a taste of the disease. Warren Fieandt, stalky, red-headed center for the Bulldogs, was chosen for center position on the All-Twin Valley Conference team. Fieandt was respons- ible for nearly one-third of the points made by the Galena team. During the season, he rang up the total of 143 points for an average of 8.4 points per game for 17 games. I The "B" team made about the same record as their elders with eight wins and nine losses. The Pups, also, had the fans on their feet most of the time by win- ning or losing several games by one or two points. Coach Abbey has a bright outlook for the coming year, with three of his high-point men, Fieandt, Webb, and Enyart, back from this year's "A" team. Also, fourteen experienced reserves will be clamouring for a berth on the squad. His most serious losses will be Shaw, Martin and Hamilton, three of his top- llight players.

Complications multiply as Rebecca searches for her deceased brother's money, which he has left hidden about the house, providing in a freak will that a portion of it is to go to the person who happens to find it.
