eXLaurie Bird, who celebrates her twenty-fiffh anni-
vers hing staff of Nampa High School, we dedicate our
Pale, misty, green and silver seems the sage,
Glowing softly in morn's first beams of light,
Bedecked with wild flower foliage
Of yellow, purple, crimson, purest whiteg
And while rose tints the mou'ntain's snowy height
The golden sunlight floods the sagebrush plaing
A deep blue sky replaces colors brightg
Boundless and vast extends the gray domain,
Yet ever pungent scents of fragrant sage remain.
At sunset how the length'ning shadows spread
O'er sagebrush plain! While colors, vivid, rare,
Flame o'er the western sky. Deep tones of red
And orange richer glow in desert air.
Blue blends with purple, green or golden flare
And slowly fades when twilights' dusky veil
Desccnds on gray jack rabbits debonair
And blots out mountains, foothills, winding trail
Intensified, the scents of sage o'er all prevail.

OUR ADVISERS '
Mrs. Edna Wilkening
Mr. Grove Haddock
Mr. Webster Caldwell
Class of 1946:
On behalf of the Board of Education, the patrons, and the office of administration,
I wish to extend congratulations on your achievements during your career in the Nampa
You are being graduated into a world of peace after years of war. The nations have
laid down their guns and they turn to more tranquil ways. A new era lies ahead and the
youth of today has grave responsibilities. One of these responsibilities, to those who have
fought for this peace, is to dedicate our every effort to the preservation of the America
we love . . . an America that remains a land of opportunity . . . an America of ledership.
We cannot all be leaders. It is important to an individual, and to his nation, to be a
good follower. The first prerequisite for a good follower is to choose the right type of
leader. And as you leave school to take your place in the world of affairs, I urge you to
be good followersg be alert, ask questions and seek after the truth. A good follower
demands that his leader be a man of high ideals and principles. The world is eager for those
who follow, not blindly, but wisely. A
Again, congratulations on attaining this milestone in your life.
W. E. GILLAM, Superintendent.
MISS GERTRUDE MILLER
Treasurer and Clerk of School District No. 37
CLASS OF 1946-
Heartiest congratulations upon attaining another milestone in your formal education.
You are the first high school graduates of a New Age. What world-shaking events have
taken place since the last graduating class crossed the platform to receive diplomas, and
how differently the members of this class may view, and plan for, the future!
It is significant that the observance which marks the completion of your high school
career is termed a "commencement" Your education is not completed, for education is a
process which begins with the cradle and ends only with the grave. You are just beginning!
You may all realize the simple truth of that statement. American "savvy" and
"know-how" was not attained on a high school level. It was the product of the laboratories
and classrooms of our universities and the laboratories of our great industrial plants. High
schools furnished only the tools of learning.
In this new age of science, higher education will be more necessary to success than
ever before. It is my hope that each of you may find opportunity to continue your schooling,
to the end that you may reap the greatest possible joy and satisfaction in your future lives.
Best wishes for you all!
H. F. WILLMORTH.

The school board, headed by Lester Hamilton, chairman, added many improvements
to Nampa High School. B. G. Davies, E. G. Chaffer, C. M. Corlett, Elmer Kinney, Edson
Deal and Gertrude Miller, clerk, complete the board.
They planned many improvements for the school, among which was the leveling of
the tract of land north of the Caldwell Boulevard. This land was then turned into a base-
ball diamond for the high school enthusiasts.
They secured equipment for the machine shop, manual training and agriculture
building from the U. S. Government surplus commodities.
Considerable time was spent trying to find a location for a new high school. They
gave their work much publicity among the service clubs to get public opinion.
Although the board came to no definite conclusion, they found several desirable
sites and are planning to build a new up-to-date high school in the next few years.
Merit Board S
The merit board, composed of Barbara Gowen, chairman, Barbara Lessinger, Barbara
McCall, and Myrna Knipe, met once each semester to compile the activity points earned by
students during that semester. This work consisted of checking activities listed on petition
cards turned in by the sponsor of each club. Finally the points on each card were totaled
and the sum recorded.
Each year the five Seniors earning the greatest number of points receive a life pass
which admits them to all events sponsored by Nampa Senior High School.

Two of the most important matters settled by the Student Council this year were incompleted
topics left over from previous years. The first was approving the budget drawn up by Mr. Cald-
well, the high school treasurer. The second was revising, and passing the school Constitution.
Nampa High School's governing body was steered by Glenn Cushman, president, Bill Allen, vice-
presidentg Valeta Hershberger, secretary. The other administrators included homeroom representa-
tives, yell king and queen, publication editors, and class presidents.
Once each month a boy from the senior class was elected by the Student Council as Student Ro-
tarian. These honored boys were Tom Thompson, Pat Little and Mike Hayes.
A piano was purchased by the organization for use in assemblies. The members voted to have
the exchange assembly, which was given in Boise, and charge admission for the purpose of raising
funds for a new refrigerator in the lunchroom. It was also decided to have the Senior Assembly a
pay assembly. The money from this was to help pay for the srevice-men's placque.
Plans for assisting in the District Basketball Tournament, held here in Nampa, were carried out
by the Student Council. Committees were chosen to procure posters, provide for half-time enter-
tainment, to keep the gym floor clean and to attend to various details.

OUR CLASS PRESIDENTS
The long trek is over for the thirty-ninth graduating class of N. H. S. This years seniors
are leaving the portals of Nampa High with a feeling that much has been accomplished since
1942. President Dick Comstock, and his assistants, Tom Thompson, vice-president, and Jonec
Harley, secretary-treasurer, led the class through their final year.
As "greenies" this class never lacked originality. In early fall of "43," the motto, "Not for
school, but life we learn," was chosen, while the carnation and blue and gold were selected as
the class flower and colors, respectively. "Coach Cunningham's Headache Before the Franklin
Game," a skit, presented before the student body, and a matinee dance concluded the class's
activities for their initial year.
Soft music and elaborate decorations portrayed "Magic Is the Moonlight" which was the
theme of the Junior-Senior Prom, given in honor of the preceding class, by the class of "46."
Nineteen forty-five and forty-six brought their high school career to its climax. A dance
was given January 4 with the theme "Blues in the Night." Betty Spencer was general chair-
man, Barbara Waigand, George Sparks, Helen Schuler, subordinating.
The spring of "46" arrived with the last of their activities. Casting their dignity aside,
the jovial seniors presented from the "Gay Nightiesv, "Herbert's Sherbert Shoppe" as their as-
sembly. Pauline Hilty took full charge of the affair. She was assisted by Dorothy Cudd, Jack
Rehm, Barbara White, Robert Patterson, Valeta Hershberger, Barbara Gowen, and Ruthie
Lloyd. The door receipts were turned over for the Servicemens' Placque.
"Garden of Memories," the theme chosen to be used for the senior luncheon, held May 7 .
was carried out in a refreshing manner by Chairman Barbara Gowen and her committees. In-
cumbent class advisers, Miss Bird and Mr. Ludlow, as well as the girls' and boys' advisers, Mrs.
Wilkening and Mr. Haddock, were guests of honor.
Baccalaureate exercises, on May 12, preceded commencement by four days. The time has
come for the class of "46" to bid farewell to N. H. S.

Fulfilling their class motto, "The Elevator to Success Is Not Running, Take the Stairs,"
the class of '47 is steadily pounding the doors of success.
Students were spurred by the shining leadership of Bob XVilkerson, who twice has won the
honor of prexy. The vice-president position was efficiently occupied by Jim McNeil, and
Patty Hankins took the secretarial duties.
XVith favorable decisions in all meetings, Mrs. Edna Wilkening and Grove Haddock, acl-
visers for the class, are to be congratulated for their beneficial support.
As a fitting climax for all the other spring affairs, the Juniors, capably headed by Bar-
bara McCall, entertained the Seniors at the annual Junior-Senior Prom. The preceding days
of April 12 resulted in a charming disguise of the Masonic Temple ballroom carrying out the
theme of "It Might As Well Be Spring."
The Junior class assembly was welcomed with open arms as a highlight during the spring
term. Alert aggressive spirit was shown by its committee, which was composed of Keith
Brown, Bobbie Jo King, Maxine McLellan, and Bob Wilkerson. With the help of its cast, this
affair was very successful.
In the sports world Gale and Dale Faylor took high honors on the maple court team. Spe-
cial praises go to Willie Maravilla and Z. L. Pearson for meritorious work on the football squad.
The final event the juniors presented was a sport dance, which was as well received as
the other main happenings.
,Tis a hard thing to go through the metamorphosis from a green sophomore to a stately
senior-this the Junior class has successfully accomplished.

Whether taking part in the school activities or merely supporting them, the "Sophs of 46"
have contributed much pep and enthusiasm.
The responsibility for the numerous events rested on the shoulders of the energetic offi-
cers, Francis Cushman, presidentg Mike Miller, vice-president, and Mary Jean Price, secretary.
Guided and supported by Miss Evelyn Hagelin and Paul Jones, class advisers, the underclassmen
showed diligence and co-operativeness in carrying on the affairs of their class.
One of the principal events presented by the lowerclass was the Sophomore Assembly,
which took place January 29, with Norman Sower as general chairman. Included on the
assembly were musical and comedy numbers. Basketball heroes were humorously portrayed in a
quiz program. The height of hilarity was reached when Q'Corky" Gallinger and Wando Mau-
pin presented a short skit. The Sophs showed ingenuity by making this assembly as great a suc-
ccss as the other class productions.
Many sophomores were prominent in scholastic affairs such as debate and music, and held
a high place on the honor rolls. Bill Moore scored a hit on the State Basketball second team,
and Dick Bader and Larry Bennett held honorable mention in sports along with other students
of the class. s
Holding aloft their banner of green, the sophomores have contributed much to the year's

included Class B schools, coming out with two wins against two defeats and two ties.
In the first game the Bullpups tackled the Boise team. It was a close game all the
way but the Canines were too much for the Papooses and Nampa won, 7-0.
Caldwell's Kittens next tried to conquer the Bullpups. Neither team could score
more than one touchdown as they battled to a 6-6 tie.
A tough Class B team from Homedale played the Nampa boys next. They, too, found
the Bullpups too tough as they went home on the short end of a 20-7 score.

istered by the tough Marsing boys in a close tussle, that left the Bullpups with a 13-12

Guided by the able hand of Pauline Hilty, first semester, and Darro Ann Barnes, second
semester, the 45-46 Growl was a newsy and an up-to-date source of information.
With Mrs. Margaret Dunbar at the advisery post, the paper was published, with the excep-
tion of a few weeks, every Friday. Starting with the reporters and editors, news was gathered
and submitted to the adviser for proof-reading and elimination of unwanted material. Then it
was organized by the editors and sent to the Gem State Printers for printing. A copy was
printed and the editor and the assistant editor checked it for errors. The paper then rolled off
the press and was distributed to the student body.
Included in their further service to the school was the sponsoring of the crowning of the
Lettuce Bowl Queen. Also the Growl, in collaboration with the Sage Staff, made a lounge for
the visiting basketball teams at the district tournament.

Anticipation and suspense filled the halls of our institution of learning the months before
the "book of memories" came out. As a grand climax to the years functions, scholastic, social,
and athletic, the Sage sums 'up the activities of the year. Shouts of "Hey you, sign my Sage,"
and halls filled with "signers" sitting on the floor and stairs remain prominent in our minds as
typical "last days at school."
Sparked onward through the year by the able guidance of Barbara Gowen, emerged at the
end of the year an outstanding publication of the thirty-fifth annual. Under the super salesman-
ship of Bill Allen, a record amount of year books was sold.

Identified by their white sweaters, members of the Service Club were a familiar sight
at games, concerts and other activities. The duties of these hard-working students included
ticket-selling, ticket-taking and ushering.
The Service Club was organized in 1943 to aid teachers at basketball and football
games. Charter members are Barbara Gowen, Daryl Wittenberger, Myrtle Zarbnisky,
Justus George, Louise Neher and David Hiner. New pledges are chosen each year on the
basis of character and ability to get along with other people. After a nine-weeks probation
period, they are voted on by members of the club.
New members were initiated at a party held in November at the home of Barbara
Gowen. A banquet at the Dewey Palace after the game celebrated Armistice Day. The
final social event of the year was a dinner in the Spanish Room of "The Lodge" in Boise on
March 28. '

The Debate Club spent the recent year industriously debating throughout the state
in contests, tournaments and now and then just debating.
To get into fighting trim the members held practice debates between the various
teams of the club. After getting in if battling mood the debaters took on Caldwell and
then Emmett opponents. Both these encounters were successful. Next on the list was
the N. F. L. debate at Ontario, Oregon. After successfully participating in these inter-
scholastic debates, the group moved on to the state tournament at Boise. Mr. Mathews,
sponsor of the club, is very well satisfied with the work done this year.
Silver "N" pins are awarded after club members participate in the required number
of inter-scholastic debates.

Character, Scholarship, Leadership, Service-these qualities are symbolized by the
coveted pin awarded to each member of the Honor Society upon entering the club. The
primary requirement for membership in this organization is a grade average of 1.6 or better.
The main undertaking of the "Quiz Kids" was to complete the list of former students
of Nampa High who were or are in some branch of the armed forces. These names will be
recorded on a Service Men's Honor Roll which is to be placed in some part of the school
building. The list, which includes about one thousand names, was compiled from the files
of the Chamber of Commerce.
The rites of initiation were conducted the evening of February 4 in the Home Ee
room. Intellectual members of the Junior Class were taken into the Society during May.

To rc-establish the Silver-N as the local chapter of the National Forensic League was
the main objective of the speech organization this year. It is now on an active basis and
may sponsor inter-scholastic tournaments.
Students must acquire fifty points before they can become members of the club.
Merits are gained by participating in the various speech activities, including contests, radio
programs and debates. After they have earned the required fifty points, members may
work for pins and certificates denoting honorary degrees.
Each Thursday night, Silver-N'ers broadcasted intriguing mysteries, poetry, or his-
toric dramas over KFXD.
Several schools were invited to a speech tournament on November 20. Seven towns
were represented in the debate and speaking contests held December 14. Journeying to
Emmett on the 16th of January, aspirants entered in the tourney there and returned to
Nampa with most of the top honors. A District N. F. L. contest was held in the spring,
which included towns from several different states.

The Girls Athletic Association was organized to promote good sportsmanship, leadership and athletic
ability among the girls of N. H. S. Letters are awarded for earning a required number of points.
Two initiations were held during the year for those who wished to join the club. A play day was enjoyed
at Caldwell and later the members sponsored one for girls of nearby athletic organizations. The traditional
Christmas holiday was celebrated by an ice-skating party after which gifts were exchanged. The more ad-
venturesome of the group spent an invigorating day frolicking mid snow banks and pines during a ski trip at
Miss Miriam Eastly, sponsor, and Mrs. Geraldine Cruse, co-sponsor, ably assisted the girls through
another successful year.
