Pow- Wow new gold watch. The new sponsor of Pow Wow is Mr. Arthur Herring. When one thinks of spring at Lamar, he always remembers the May Fete. Each year after the May Fete, Pow Wow gives their big- gest dance of the year. Everyone goes to the dance hoping for a closer glimpse of, or even a dance with, some of Lamar's royalty. The officers for this year were Ben Kostial, president, Melvin Kurth, fall vice-president, Bill Lee, spring vice-president, Pat Whitworth, secretary, Teddy Wiegard, treasurer, E. B. Roberts, sergeant-at-arms, and Richard Black and Buck Wheat, directors. At the club's formal at the River Oaks Country Club, Ben Kostial presented a bouquet of roses to the Pow Wow Pin-Up, Jem Bentz. The following new members were drawn: Walter Allen, Bob Arrington, Paul Bowers, Tommy Davies, Dick Fullerton, Harry Gayden, Gaylord Gillispie, Ronald Hall, John Henry Herbert, Fort Howard, George Johnson, Jack Lewi, Claude Matthews, Armando Porras, Jack Tait, Buddy Williams, George Woodward.

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

A small gold English "R," Lamar Stationery, Spring Track Meet, Ramal Cup . . . all of these are characteristics of Lamar's largest boys' social club. Under the guidance of Mr. Lee S. Keding this club plays a leading role in many social and charitable activities. This year was one of the most eventful in the club's history. An energetic group of offi- cers were elected last spring. Robert Clemons was the fall president, Bill Thornton, vice- president, Earle Alexander, secretary, Khle- ber Attwell, treasurer, Al Hildreth, social chairman, Don Olsen, sports chairman, George Dorrance, junior membership chairman, Har- vey Smith, sergeant-at-arms, and Philip Blatt, chaplain. Before the school doors opened in Septem- ber this group was making plans for the com- ing year. The first thing the club did when school opened was to elect their fall sweet- heart. The honor of being Ramal Sweetheart entitled Gayle Garth to participate in all the club activities and to attend its meetings. Ramal introduced something new to students this year with their colorful Lamar stationery. Gayle and the Ramals will remember the aft- ernoon they all got together and packed three hundred boxes. The club's fall pay dance, the "Redskin Wardance," was held the night be- fore Lamar played Thomas Jefferson. ln the floor show, which would be hard to forget, Ramals gave a take-off of the Jeffer- FALL PRESIDENT-ROBERT CLEMONS
