Under the sponsorship of W. L. Burns, the lraris promote friendship and good feeling among their members. The fall officers of Irari did much to gain prestige for the club throughout school. Johnny Miller was club president, Arthur Mon- crief, vice-president, Jimmy Burns, secretary, Billy Hardin, treasurer, Fred Staacke, ser- geant-at-armsg Martin Scheid, social chair- man, John McConnell, junior membership chairman, Charles Tapley, publicity chair- man, and Hammy Hill, sports chairman. Soon after the opening of school the club elected the members of the annual Irari Court. Carolyn Coy was elected queen, Barbara Lee Brown, princess from Chumsj Shari Collins, princess from Niwauna, Rosemary Hamner, princess from Hainonis, George May, princess from Ladaka, Jane Putney, princess from Palomar, and Jo Ann Woodham, princess from Tawasi. These girls were honored with an open house held at the home of Fred Staacke. Probably the biggest event of the year for the lraris was their fall pay dance. Remember the "S.S.S." - this announcement began to arouse the curiosity of the student body at least a month before the dance.

Ramals will not forget the week preceding this occa- sion which was spent gathering and silvering a trailer-full of magnolia leaves, writing pro- grams, and filling two hundred green and white balloons with helium. At the formal, Gayle Garth was presented a bouquet of roses and a silver bracelet. The following officers for the spring term were announced: Bill Munnerlyn, president, Tommy Jax, vice- president, Benny Hood, secretary, Lewis Cut- rer, treasurer, Bill Thornton, social chairman, Khleber Attwell, sports chairman, Fagan Cox, junior membership chairman, Claude Hooton, sergeant-at-arms, and Don Olsen, chaplain. In the spring the members elected Anne Watts club sweetheart. They looked forward to their annual track meet and the presenta- tion of the Ramal Cup. This cup is presented each year to the most outstanding junior girl. Last year Julia Picton received the cup. The following new members were drawn: Richard Webb, Bill Wilde, Fred Duckett, George Wil- son, Kenneth Horton, Tommy Hill, Yeager Markins, George More, Jim Wildman, Newton Rayzor, Tom Biggs, Bill Bullen, Murphy Scurry, Maurice Keathely, Charlton Hadden, Carl Lee, Bill Word, Jack McComb, Larry Hensarling, Mack Milner, Joe Shaffer, and Jim Dickson.
