Jack Shackelford, popular sophomore, was elected at the beginning of the school year, to fulfill the duties of this office. Upon the president's shoulders fall the responsibilities of all schoolactivi- ties. He presides over convocations and has charge of the school's social life. His most colorful duty is the final speech presented at commencement exercises. Jack Shackelford has lived up to all of the expectations of a good student president and is one of whom the graduating class is proud.

Muskogee Junior College Since its creation in l92O by the local Board of Education, the Muskogee Junior college grew steadily as a one-year institution until l928, when it was established as a two-year institution, sponsored by the University of Oklahoma. Being a liberal arts school, no terminal courses are offered, but those given are equivalent to the same courses offered in the University. Through the personal attention of Dean Roy L. Gittinger, who visited the Junior College classes, through suggestions from Dr. S. R. Hadsell of the English Department, through aid from Dean S. W. Reaves, the courses of- fered were carefully arranged. The advantages accruing to students by virtue of their attendance at the one-year Junior College led the patrons of the school to make an insistant de- mand that the one-year college be extended to a two- year Junior College. In response to this urgent re- quest, the Board of Education, therefore, early in the spring of l928 invited Mr. George C. Wells, State High School Inspector, Dean Roy L. Gittinger, Uni- versity of Oklahoma, and Dr. Paul B. Sears, Science Department of the University, to visit the Junior College and to make definite recommendations for the establishment of the two-year course. Upon the recommendations of the above three men, the State Board of Education recommended that it be placed on the accredited list of State Colleges. Since then it has been regularly inspected and approved by the accrediting committee consisting of J. Andrew Holly, chairman of the Committee on Higher Institutions of 9 i Learning, Roy L. Gittinger, Dean of Administration, University of Okahoma, N. Conger, Dean of School of Education, Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College. From May l93O to May l938, certificates of completion of two years work have been granted by the Board of Education in Muskogee to 222 students. The school is governed by the students and their stud- ious attitude. The only student office is that of presi- dent of the student body. The school emblem and nickname is "Green Frogs." Approximately two hours of preparation is spent for every one hour of recitation. It is interesting to note that over fifty percent of the boys attending the school this year, are employed part time, their schol- astic standing, however, remains high. This truly pointsgvout the desire for education now and later by the students. The Polliwog He was a little polliwog named Dave, And all he did was swim and play He never took a bath or shaved, He just lived the easy way. As time went on, a change took place, And Davey lost his tail. "Oh Gee," though he, with troubled face "l'lI never be a whale." "Now what will I do when I want to swim?" He soon began to pout. When all ofa sudden with surprise to him, Four tiny legs grew out, Class Will You've heard us laugh, You've heard us fuss, But in case you don't remember us, When others come our place to fill We leave with you -this-our last will. To Marvin Krieger, large and fair, Sid Broaddus leaves his carrot hair. Flora Mae leaves her written possessions, So sophs next year won't hafta get lessons. Juanita leaves her raven hair, To the freshman girl who would be fair. Kathryn Murphy leaves her smile, Just to make the world worthwhile. Jack and Joel as their ways they wend, Leave "Dotty" Lamour to a freshman friend. Carolyn and Nina leave all their knowledge, To help the freshmen get through college. In making this jest, Pete's voice does ring: "A bit of learning is a dangerous thing." Herbert Daily leaves a treat, At IO-2 and 4, a bite to eatl and "Since I'm grown up, and quite the stuff. I think l'Il go to school I I'lI choose the one that's run by Huff And leave this muddy pool." He took deep breaths while on a log And began to stretch and swell, Just so that man who gathered frogs, Would send him to Jamell. "Now l've been caught, and l've been shipped,' He said with wise old eyes- Not every frog is willing to be ripped For science and the wise. Testament Evelen Anne leaves a question mark, As she upon her future embarks. To every freshman, young and dear, We leave a bottle of Lois Beer. Dot leaves her dissections of internal anatomy As she trucks off to West Point Academy. Susie leaves a Contes Dramatiques, Which she won't need as a domestique. A warm handshake, a friendly "hi," ls left BHU by Mase Ed Frye. His romeo nature is left by Sig, To help apple-polish your way thru trig. Baseball-erasers that make lots of noise, C. W. and Howell leave to the boys. A story of Pueblo and the wild, wooly West, Will be left by Conley upon request. A world of wit is left by Tommy, To help the freshmen who try to be funny. Bob and Dee the men of the hour, Leave Wally Weber their brain power. Virgil Matthews needs all he's got, So can't he keep it?-Thanks a lot.
