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.

On October 30, I948, many Lamarites at-
tended the Pow Wow's Bag O' Bones Ball. 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

What does the name Ramal remind you of?
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,
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-
