VVinter leaves such memories as bas- ketball, school elections, club activities and the class plays. In spring we reach a busy climax in all the things We do, hardly Hnding enough time in which to handle each interest. In spring We see the graduation of the seniors. It is our hope that these grad- uates, and those of next year, and those of year after next, Will find this a sat- isfactory record for those cherished memories of high school days. I ADMINISTHATIUN BI.-XRY STEXNART, Secretary R. VV. ANDERSKDN, Superintendent The members of this class go out from Neosho High School faced with more problems than any class in the history of the school.

Undefeated and tied but once, Neosho represents the strongest team of eight potential title-holders. Of the Big-8, six teams were classed as possible champions, and the other two could not be classed as weak. The season was one of upsets and come-backs from start to finish. After winning their two opening non-conference games, the 'wVildcats entered the turmoil of the Big-8 Conference and forged their way through, bowing to no opponent. Highlights always to be remembered are: the battle at Nevada, end- ing with a score of I2-7 for the yCats, the one tie of the year, 6-6 at Aurora, the classic between the two undefeated title-seekers, Blonett and Neosho, in which the 'Cats were victorious with a 6-O score, and the final conference game at llt. Vernon, where the '-l-5 Champs rolled up their highest score, 39-0. Neosho represented the Big-8 Conference in the annual Ozark Howl, where Hlt. Grove handed the VVildcats their only defeat of the season, the final score being 19-0. For ten of the starting eleven, this was the last season of high school football. These veteran seniors filled every post on the regular line-up with the single exception of center. The usual starting line-up: LE, John Anderson, LT, Gordon Cain, LG, George James, C, lllax Prunty, RG, Bob Turk, RT. Donald Barbarick, RIC, James Butler, QB, Jack Hadley, FB, Carol VVilson, LH, J. D. Renick, RH, Robert Christian. Other seniors seeing their last play were Jimmie Harmon, Jimmy Rudd, Jare Barkley Leonard llfloffett, and Tommy Strait. v The team starred as a whole, every man putting forth his best efforts to improve the team's chances. Dependable and essential replacements included: Raymond Green, fleet-footed halfback with pass- receiving ability, Charles VVilson, who saw action at end and guard, Dennis Greiner, a driving lineman valuable as guard or tackle, James Gibson, spunky guard, Charles Dillingham, snappy halfback, Bob lVIclntyre, end, Jimmy VVeber, tackle, Louis Cole, end, Don Branham, back, Bob lylathias, back. Future potentialities are seen in these boys: Buddy Haas, Charles Davis, Herbert Eissman, Dale Hawkins, John Hailey, Stanley Land, Bill lwclienzie, Paul Tennis, Frankie Tipton, Charles Turk, and George Harry VVilliams. 4 ?

The boys think it quite an honor to belong to the club as it involves considerable effort to earn a letter and it takes initiative to make the decision to enter, even if it is their privilege, as the initiation is not an easy thing to face. The club has other activities such as assemblies, parties and dances. The assembly, which the club presents to the student body, is usually a humorous allair. All the members of the club take part and seem to enjoy it even more than the spectators. The lettermen invite girls to their parties and dances, however, the club is for boys only. The standing president ofthe club is Carol "Bull" Xvilson, captain ofthe 1945 football squad. The vice-president is jack "Rock" Hadley, quarterback of our U44-45" football squads. Robert "Steam Rollern Christian, our secretary-treasurer, plays right-half on our '45 football squad. Nlartin "Brow 1fyes" Rohde, our sponsor, who left our school in 1941 to join the U. S. Navy, is now back with us to sponsor our club and coach our team. f x l x N-CLu3 64 ' CAROL WILSON, President 4 X at K. The llome lficonomics Club is made up ol all girls enrolled in llome Economics classes who wish to belong. Home l'lc', as it is popularly known, is the course every girl in our school wants to take. ln this club you are acquainted with every modern asset to homemaking. The most complete and best equipment is made available for their use along with the instruction of an expert. Nliss Bernice Hitzmann is the able sponsor. Giving her aid to the sponsor and the club is Betty .loy Haas, who was elected vice-president but succeeded Betty Faulkner, who left the school at the close of the lirst semester, as president. Preparing and serving the annual football banquet is one of the year's eventful duties. Other banquets are prepared and served by Home lic Club members throughout the year. This year a Sadie Hawkins Day Race marked the oncoming of fall. Vllhile all this has been going on, the members have been making pinafores and learning to cook. Others have been studying personal appearance and, as all girls must, how to improve on what nature didn't give them. llome room secretary is Jeannie Daniels and the treasurer is Nlargaret Newcomb. XVe all wish our Home lic Club many happy meals in the future: we're sure the club will make them better honiemakers. -'WS fs ff 'J BETTY IOY Haas, President U E E E Y 5325 6505 fcodamcs 'Q wh Tl JVTTYH- ft - f tlfnff' .. il Nligfffwgl Rang!!

It is the function of this group to bring a closer co-operation between the students and faculty members and see about the activity and general behavior of the students. Any betterment which can be made on the school system or building is brought before the council, suggested, and acted upon. They tend to improve the school on the whole. By doing this the Council provides a chance for the average student to taste his share of responsibility. During the year a new handbook has been one of the main issues. It is hoped that next year, when the lac- ulty is organized permanently, we can publish new and better handbooks. Presiding over each meeting is .limmie Harmon, Student Body President, who was elected by the students at the first of the school year of '45. Other oflicers of Student Council were selected by the classes and elected by the students with the exception of treasurer and assistant treas- urer, who are chosen by Ada Hancock, Commercial Department, from her classes. Hold- ing' ollice this year are Vice-President, H. F. ljvansg Secretary, Nlona Belle l.and: Treas- urer, Ruth l.owe, and Assistant Treasurer, .loyce Anderson.

The main activity does not begin until early spring when new members are brought into the club. Names are submitted by a committee to be voted on by present club members. The initiation is held during the day. This is followed by a formal initia- tion and candlelight ceremony in the evening. After the formal initiation, Sub-Deb mem- bers are hostesses to a lovely dance, the highpoint of their year's activities. President of this year's club is Dorothy jackson. Sponsor of the Sub-Deb is Nliss Ada Hancock, who took over the duties of Miss Alice Nlatters, when she was married two years ago. The oHice of secretary is very important in Sub-Deb because she has to correspond with other clubs and our National Sub-Deb leaders. Phyllis lvoodard holds down this ollice very capably. The Vice-President serves in the absence of the president. This otlice is held by Ruth Lowe. Last year the Sub-Deb Club in N.I1.S. was not active, but this year activities are being resumed to make it one of the school's most popular organizations. ll. x tx".

The uh-informal initiation is held at the beginning of the term and this is followed later in the year by a formal initiation and installation of otlicers. The Spanish Club was introduced several years ago by lVliss Alice lVlatters, who was succeeded by Nliss Nlary lVIargaret Banks, both of whom have now left the faculty of N.H.S. for a more attractive life of marital bliss. These two never-to-be-forgotten's are now succeeded by Carl Summers, who resumes his teaching after two years' absence fsome said he'd been in the army, but we know he's too smart for that, don't we?j. The Spanish Club has many active members and not the least of these is their president, Ullymie" Payne, and secretary, Jean Hunter. Anyone who takes Spanish may become a member if they desire. For a while, Spanish was the only foreign language offered in N.H.S. During this period many students learned a great deal about manners and customs of Spanish- speaking countries through the advantages of the Spanish Club. This knowledge of Span- ish mannerisms was staged in an assembly given by its members this fall. 0 - JA . SPA ISH EL B fx i sawed SQ?

Al,1v vii?" .Tall Kflfw-'SH This is the first year a Latin Club has been organized in Neosho High School. The fact is, Latin was not taught in N.H.S. for two years because of the wartime shortage of teachers. But now welre right in there pitching and all members of Latin classes are privileged to become charter members of the Latin Club, "Populi Latinae". Consul for this term is Phyllis Anderson, who is very popular in other of the school's activities. The oflices, Vice-Consul and Quaestor, are held by jack Kenney and Bernadine Haworth, re- spectively. The Latin Club gave an assembly last fall, depicting Latin customs and dress, Since we were a little late getting on stage, the rumor is we had trouble making a toga stay on with two pins and ten lingers. The Latin Club went Christmas Caroling, after which they met at Nlrs. Branhan's four tolerant sponsorj home for a party. The motto of "Populi Latinael' is "Ave atque Vale" or "Hail and Farewell" Cin case you Spanish stu- dents didnlt knowj. The Latin Club is making a scrapbook of Latin customs and manners. lt is also planning to build a model Latin home. Xve hope to improve the club in time to make it one of N.H.S.'s best. flu-5 VLN A I-, PHYLLIS ANDERSON, President Lhfnrl C Lu B fl 91 ....-...A lf you had been walking by school some evening during january, 1945, you might have seen the lights burning in room 14. This being the case you could be reasonably sure it was Nlr. Baker and a group of industrious biology students working and planning to organize a biology club. The plans worked out and a great many students joined. They chose a rather serious name for their club, "Logos Biosll, meaning the science of life. Nlany activities are undertaken by the members such as microscopic work and hikes for the purpose of collecting plant and animal specimens for mounting or study. Nlany of the members are sturling animals which are to be donated to the school. The members realize the truth in the old proverb that all work and no play makes jack a dull boy. So they take time oil to have a lot of lun at the "Rec" and line parties. The first semester, lylrs. Geary. biology teacher, was the sponsor and then Nl rs. Reuber, who took over the biology classes, also became the cluh's sponsor. lrene Nloore was elected President, with Roy lilvans Kenney as runner for Vice-President. Inez Brewster keeps the minutes and the club's funds and .limmie Payne keeps the peace as Sergeant-at-Arms. Although "Logos Bios" has passed through many hands, it still remains active, popular, and enthusiastic. lax- Ulf 95' cg 9 I IRENE MOORE, President B I U L U njfzf f X I X fair Bmpaf FF -.V The Neosho F. F. A. Chapter is composed of boys enrolled in Vocational Agriculture. This organization has thirty-eight active members with Ernest Hoover, president: Delmar Cramer, vice-president: Paul Steel, reporter: Vernon Philliber, secretary: and Dale Smith, treasurer. The organization started the school year continuing to gather scrap paper and operating concessions at football games. Three-fourths of the proceeds from scrap paper and concessions go to the buying of purebred registered livestock for boys who have worked long enough on this project. The balance of these earnings are used to further other F. F. A. activities. F. F. A. practices thrift. At the beginning of school, each boy was asked to save at least twenty-five cents a Week. As a result, we now have nearly five hun- dred dollars in a savings account at a local bank. Seventeen active members attended the Nlissouri State F. F. A. training camp held on the Lake of the Ozarks during the last week of August. This camp was sponsored not only for pleasure, but also to train boys for leadership. The F. F. A. annual parent-son banquet was held February 22 in the school cafeteria. Q-iff' Gif 14 4. 7 2 Z ERNEST HoovER, President gf X X 196 M WIN TEH .. K all , ,. Gas!!

VVe certainly looked cute with our freckles and braids. 'I'hat's where this history begills. Coming from Field with their pea shooters and gum were: Jeanne Bennett, James Butler, Gordon Cain, Jahala Crane, Wi ladean Daugherty, Norma Land, Erma Mae Lane, Marie Millender, Leonard Moffett, Etta Belle Pendergraft, Leland Tretbar, Martha Turn- er, and Carol VVilson. From Central came our brawn and brains: John Cline, Barbara de Villers, Jimmie Harmon, Bernadine Haworth, Mary Jane lberg, George James, Imogene Johnson, Virginia Jones, Mona Belle Land, June Lewis, Ruth Lowe, Virginia Parker, Shirley Price, D. Renick, VVanda Stout, Bob Turk, and Phyllis VVoodard. Crashing in from Benton were: John Anderson, Donald Barbarick, Betty and Jack Hadley, Martha Hearrell, Doro.hy Jackson, Verna Lou Randol, Gerald Rieboldt, Rosemary Tomlin, and Fon Glen Hutson. Our gang was reinforced this year by such charac- ters as Betty Wright from Goodman, Connie Rogers from Mulvine, Kansas, Louise Brock from Tulsa, Oklahoma, also Mary Hodman, Jean Handley, Benny Hughes, and Anna -Nelle Stark. There was always room for more in our class. So in the eighth grade we acquired: Mildred Nance from Sullivan, Missouri, Cleo Crumbliss from Meeks Con- solidated School, Lewis Kraft from Hammers School, Virginia Bowman from Monett, Missouri, Alfred Kolk- meyer and Thelma Lorenz from Lake Hill, Jimmy Rudd from VVinheld, Kansas, Eugene Kincade from Spurgeon, Tommy Strait from Mt. Vernon, Missouri. By now we were getting better acquainted with N. H. S. It wasn't as large as we had thought of it in our first days. VVe were growing too. Some of the braids were disappearing and we even began to lose some of our freckles. As freshmen, we elected Connie Rogers as attendant to the Wildcat Queen and Betty Hadley served as at- tendant for Football Queen. Our boys were gaining prominence in the athletic field, with John Anderson, Donald Barbarick, and 'Carol Wilson playing on the starting lineup of the football team. New blood was added to our class in our freshman year when we received our classmates from the coun- try. Marialyce Harmon from Edgewood, Bonnie Staib and Helen Rion from Cave Springs, Janetta Fairchild, Ernest Hoover, Gerald Adams, Bonnie Yetter, Orpha Reding, and VVilbur Jay from Belfast. Delmar Cramer came from VVest Benton, while Roberta Johnson, Elizabeth Kraft and Ethyl Lane arrived from Spurgeon. From Willow Springs came Evelyn Gil- strap, from Jaybird, Bobby Adams and Hazel Smith, Lyle Dean Franks from Hammers, Clyde Green from Shoenborn, Jewell Hoover and Doris June Hoover from Pleasant Valley, and Jane Lois VVilson from Oak Grove. Coming from afar we greeted: Marvin and Junior Swanson from Des Moines, Iowa, Chuck Malow from Anderson, Luella Sharp from Southwest City, Shirley Fitzjohn and Arthur Giles from Racine, Frank Rob- erts from Granby. Robert Christian joined us from Rocky Comfort, Charles St. Clair from VValnut Shade, Missouri, Paul Bowers from Stella, Austin VVilliams from Pierce City, Johnny Goostree from VVheaton, Charline VVilliams from Goodman, Mary VVilliamson from Little Rock, Arkansas. Other additions were Leon Pace, Bob Ball, M. Edge and Dorothy Fergusson. Ah, at last we're Sophomores. Something's gone wrong, where are all of those assemblies? But school life is not so dull, what with the continual faculty changes due to wartime conditions. This year Ruth Lowe served as VVildcat Attendant. As Sophomores, we gained Ruth Kennedy from Sen- eca, Vernon Philliber from Joplin, and Doris Terry from Kosculsko, Mississippi. That year, our ranks suffered the loss of John Cline, Dorothy Fergusson, Fon Glenn Hutson, Anna Nelle Stark, Gerald Rieboldt, and Mary' VVilliamson. Entering our Junior year with a bang, we elected Betty and Jack, the Hadley twins, as VVi'dcat Queen and King. Virginia Jones was Football Queen Attend- ant. The basketball squad selected Johnny Goostree as Basketball Captain, and Martha Hearrell attended the Basketball Queen. As Juniors, we received Leslie Eurit from Fairview, Joann North from Berkeley, California, Billie Louise Rees from Chicago, Ruth Dobson from Westview. Various reasons caused us to lose Bob Ball, J. M. Edge, John Goostree, Jean Handley, -Doris Hoover, Benny Hughes, Eugene Kincade, Ethyl Lane, Leon Pace, Jane Lois VVilson, and Charline VVilliams. Our Senior year was loaded with climaxes. The football boys won the Vndefeated Big-8 Championship, and played Mt. Grove in the Springfield Ozark Bowl. The squad elected Carol VVilson as Football Captain and Mona Belle Land as Football Queen. Cleo Crumb- liss and Virginia Parker were Senior Attendants of the '46 VVildcats. The basketball squad elected Jack Hadley as Captain, and crowned winsome Martha Hearrell, Queen. In this last year we added: Shirley Blankenship from Rocky Mountain, Virginia, Mildred Popejoy from Springfield, Missouri, Dema Crawford from Goodman, Don Kahle from Portland, Oregon, Thomas Brasher from Salina, Oklahoma, June Dalton from Alliance, Nebraska, Ross Watson from San Bernardino, Cali- fornia, Erma Jean Dolence from Goodman, Missouri, and Hugh Hills who returned to school from war work in VVichita, Kansas. Six returned veterans will receive diplomas with this class although they remain members of their own classes: Clinton Crabtree '43, Vonnie F. Porter '43, Joe Addington '43, Charles Sinsicke '43, Joe E. Meyer '-1-3, and Charles McCullough '-I--I-. "The Eyes of Tlaloc" selected by Carl Summers included the following cast: Parker, M. Land, Dalton, North, Blankenship, Kahle, Crumbliss, Barbarick, Had- ley, Rudd, Franks, Harmon and Cain. To further represent the seniors of '46, Jimmy Har- mon was elected President of the Student Body, Jack Hadley was elected editor of THE VVILDCAT, iEtta Belle Pendergraft and Jewell Hoover as drum majorettes and Tony Ness as editor and chief of Thr Ilfildfats flleofw. A class with such outstanding members and these many memorable occasions will not soon be forgotten -so here's to the graduating class of '-lol .lack HADLEY Football 2, 3, 4 Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4 Track 23 4 N Club 3, 4 Basketball Captain 4 Class President 1, 2, 4 1VII,DC.4T Staff 3, 4 Steering Committee 3, 4 VVildcat Club 3, 4 Band 1, 2, 3, 4 Orchestra 4 S1-UREEY HLANKENSHII' Nlixed Chorus 4 Rainbow 4 Class Vice- President 4 Sub Deb 4 Pep Club 4 Class Play 4 -IOHN .ANDERSON Hand 1, 2, 3, 4 Orchestra 2, 3, 4 Football 1, 2, 3, 4 Basketball 2, 3, 4 Track 1. 2, 4 N Club 2, 3, 4 Spanish Club 2, 3, 4 Class Secretary 4 -I.
