Baker Coldwell Cameron Crisp Cunningham Creager Dillehay Edwards Forbes Freund Gast Goss Holliday Zadalea 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. VICE-PRESIDENT-BETTY GRAY

No 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 VICE-PRESIDENT-MELVIN KURTH
