Boasting one hundred fifty tireless pairs ofvocal cords from which rang the cry of the undefeated, and sometimes defeated "Neosho Wildcats", the 1955-56 Pep Club was one of the largest our school has seen. During the year, in order to obtain the neces- sary with which it sponsored the homecomings, the club held candy sales, parties, and of course twenty- five cents dues per semester, The winding of the 'millions' of strips of colored crepe paper is taken on here by Pat Reed, Marilyn Bogle, Sue Green, and Karen Bebee, just a few of the many members. -'x 4 '. or 49" ii 13' ' i fl?

HQ H3555 "The Loqol Sons of Neosho High" Yes, sir Neosho's football fortunes, which rode to two undefeated records in the past two years, sagged this season to yield the Big Nine title to Carthage after a hard 4 win 6 loss season. Neosho entertained Seneca for the first game in the new stadium ending in an early 32-O setback for the Wildcats. Beset by injuries after the disastrous rout by Seneca, Coach Lane, assisted by Coach Stipp, tried to plug up the holes to meet Rogers, but the Mountaineers plowed through with a 28-13 win. Next, the Wildcats started the Big Nine play bowing to Nevada,19-12, and Lamar 37-6. After 4 consecutive defeats Neosho nosed out Monett for a 7-6 win. Neosho emerged for a bitter battle with Carthage, un- defeated yet in the season, and Aurora, avenging the past Neosho victories. Carthage remained atop 27-7, and Aurora won 18-12. The new fighting spirit brought out in the Aurora game showed as the Wild- cats finished their season by trouncing Mt. Vernon 19-12, Webb City 14-12, and Cassville '27-19.

This is a national chartered organization, and our local chapter is sponsored by Miss Effie Neil. Membership is composed of fifteen per cent of the Senior Class and five per cent ofthe Junior Class. To be eligible, they must rank in the up- per third of their class and excell not only in scholarship, but also in service, character, and leadership. The new members are announced each year in a special N.H.S. assembly. They are later honored at an early morning breakfast given by the old members. K Janet Burch . . Donna Jo Garner Sue Hatchett .

This organization is open to any student seventeen or under whois interested in the firing and care of a weapon. Although both boy and girl students are eligible, all the present members are boys. The club received their charter from the National Rifle Association on March 28, 1955. The members fire their rifles weekly at the local National Guard Armory. The club buys all the munition which the members use, but the army supplies them with guns and targets. Their arms consist of twenty-two caliber rifles. The club is sponsored and coached by Mr. Messer with the assistance of Mr. Miller. STANDING: Bobby Fields, Wayne Smith, Dale Richards, J. O. Lewis, Richard Matters, Matt Radekin, John Carver.

The paper attempts to get news, feature , and sports stories to its readers as fast, or faster than word of mouth. Although this is impossible in a school the size of N.H,S. , the paper runs a pretty good race. The staff puts out a two page edition each Friday containing news from as late as Tuesday. As well as news stories about such events as elections, speech and drama, and honor roll lists, the paper has a regular feature section. "Potts and Porter", "Kampus Katie", and other less regular columns keep the reader posted on information that isn't exactly news, yet isn't gossip, The Sports Editor and his crew do a good job of keeping the student body up to date on all the Big Nine and local sports happenings.

Co-Editor Marilyn Rouse . . . . . Co-Editor ANNUAL STAFF The staff of the school yearbook often takes over the job with little or no experience in book publishing. The members are faced with a multitude of problems which must be solved if the venture is to be successful. Marilyn Rouse and Diane CaHai1, co-editors of the 1956 WILDCAT, began by planning the sections of the book, determining the number of pages to be used, and designing the cover and end pages. Next was to select a publisher and photographer. After thoughtful consideration of three companies, the editors and sponsor, Maudmary Wilson, chose the Inter-Collegiate Press of Kansas City and Mr, Murphy returned as the photographer. Immediately classes, football homecoming, and various other activities were photographed, and the staff began the slow job of compiling pages to mail to the printers. The climax of the many hours' work put into this book comes at the annual party after the King and Queen are announced, and the students are issued the finished product--your 1956 WILDCATI STANDING: Stanley Oliver, John Prickett, Beverly Wilson, Rosetta Snow, Diane Branham, Rolene Spencer, Jim Mc Fall, Miss Wilson, Timmy Brasiola, Ronald Sage, Carlos Baron.
