Ladaka is Lamar's newest social club. This
club, whose name is derived from the "L" for
Lamar and "Adaku," an Indian word meaning
"to serve," was founded three years ago. Since
that time this club under the guidance of
Miss Hazelle McCarty has maintained their
motto "She is noble who does noble deeds,"
and has become one of Lamar's leading social
clubs. Last year the club began by presenting
a hundred and fifty dollar scholarship to Lou-
ello Kendrick, a Lamar graduate of last spring.
Each year Ladaka plans to leave one of these
scholarships to a worthy girl. Below, Mr. Moyes
receives a check from the club. Another activ-
ity for last fall was the "Twilight Twirl,"
Ladaka's successful pay dance. Ladakas will
remember practicing for their ballet, and also
finding out at the last minute that the cokes
had not yet been ordered. One of the new
projects of Ladaka this year was to form a
welcoming committee for the Sophomores.
Each Ladaka wore o red and blue "L" and
after a "pep" rally in the auditorium the new
students were led through the strange halls.
Because of the success of this project
Ladaka plans to make this a permanent aid
to the school.

one will soon forget the Weird Spook House,
which had been made out of Mr. Uzzell's
physics "lab." lt was ebon black, and the
strains of one of Stan Kenton's more lurid
creations were creeping out of a phonograph.
Sure! Everyone knows now that those were just
brushes on the floor to scratch the legs of
the frightened guests and that it was a little
Pow Wow who kept his hands in ice water all
evening so that his fingers would be cold when
he tried to strangle everyone. Sure, it's plain
now, but that evening it was a different story.
Pow Wow dug deep and came up with a
different type of installation this year. Each
member took a date. Following the installa-
tion the Pow Wows and their dates danced
the rest of the evening.
At mid-term Mr. Orris G. Bailey, the spon-
sor of Pow Wow, left Lamar to become a
supervisor of chemistry.
The club presented him with a beautiful
