Pagell Q TWNEVAMC FACULTY COMEDY CUES Mr. Iilka: Do you know why I ilunked you, lunior? Iunior Short: I haven't the least idea. Mr. Iilka: Correct! "Dear Mr. McKeehan," wrote Mrs. Denman, "you must not whack my Iohnny. He is a delicate child and isn't used to it. At home we never hit him except in self-defense." Miss Burns: "David, can you tell me how matches are made?" D. Inwood: "No, but I don't blame you tor asking." Miss B.: "What do you mean?" D. E.: "Well, mother says you have been trying to make cr match for thirty years." Mr. Limbaugh: "Now students, here you see the skull ot a chimpanzee, a very rare specimen. There are only two in the country-one in the national museum and I have the other." Mr. Howell: "If there are forty-eight states in the Union, and super-heated steam equals the distance from Bombay to Paris, what is my age?" , Richard Potter: "F'orty7four, sir." Mr. Howell: "Correct, and how did you prove that?" Richard: "Well, I have a brother who is twenty-two and he is only half nuts." Mr. Angus Springer was busy in his study. "Have you seen this?" said his wife, entering. "There's a report in the paper of your death." "Is that so," returned Angus without looking up. "We must remember to send a wreath." Miss Bray: Cto Chinese man-servant? "After this, when you enter my bedroom, please knockel might be dressing." Chinaman: "Me no need knock. Me allawys look in keyhole first." Miss Dorman: tBride ot the yearl "I want a loin to cook." Butcher: "Okay, goilie, l'll see if I can find youse a cook book." Pagel2' The NEVAMO TWNEVAMQ SENIQBS THEIHSTQRY Potential glory was presented to the Purple and Gold colors as they were assigned to a promising organization of Sophomores who were to be known to posterity as "the class of 38." Upon entering Senior High, these happy-go-lucky students showed everyone that they were ready, willing and able to perform Sophomore duties in an efficient manner by electing David Inwood as class president, Charles Sterett as vice-president, Doris Mae Smith as treasurer, and Marion Scott as secretary. Mr. Roy Wert was selected to advise this administration on the perp'exities of class organization, and lane Brown's leadership of the class yell, "Booma-lacka, Chicka-lacka," resulted in lingering echoes when 127 sturdy voices were raised in lusty support of the "Purple and Gold." ' After the excitement of class elections had subsided, plans were made for an entry in the local P. E. Q. "Stunt Contest." The dramatic genius of Sponsor Wert was proven when he wrote the playlet "Doom" which tied for first place in its division, thereby enriching the class treasury to the extent of 55.00. This triumph was especially important because defeat was placed squarely upon the shoulders of the Senior class by energetic actors who were responsible for the first successful venture of the Sophomore year. Mirth and glee in all proportions were bestowed upon N. I-I. S. after the Christmas holidays by that event of events, the School Carnival. Bette Io Iudy and Ned Clemensen were the Sophomore candidates for Queen and King, respectively, and a wave of dauntless enthusiasm trippling from their classmatesl carried them to second place in the regal oontest, enough tickets being sold to keep the Iuniiors in the third bracket. Bent for success and determined to be outstanding was the mental status characteristic of the members of the Iunior class in September, l936, for the toll of the school bell had brought the grades of '38 together for another year of cooperative effort. Great was the satisfaction of the llth graders when the results of the class officer election was inscribed upon the annals of N. H. S. politics in the following form:- Faculty Sponsor .... .... Miss Nell Dorman President ....... .... H arry Hammer Vice-President . . . .... Charles Sterett Secretary ..... ...... B etty Bush Treasurer .... Inez lean Tow Yell Leader ................................ ...... ............ Q u enton Lesher Twenty-two of the class dramatists were soon in shirt sleeves as hard work was begun on the Iunior class play, written by Charles Quimby Burdette and titled "Shirt Sleeves." A large audience of students and townspeople were royally and pleasantly entertained on the night of November 6, as those playing the principal parts, Bill White, Bette Io Iudy, Helen Warren, Charles Sterett, Doris Mae Smith, Ralph Wardin, Inez lean Tow, Iunior Shellenberger, Phyllis Runyan, and Harry Hammer, gave a very good demonstration on "how to put one over." It was in this Iunior class that the notoriously powerful and much discussed club known as the "Brush" was organized by a few prominent and adventuresome students. Although the club is now known only to antiquity, it started such a wave of cliques in Nevada high that some note should be made of it if this chronicle is to be accurate and complete. More experience was gained by the class officers in speechmaking and by the class in ticket selling when Parker Wilson and Helen Dale were supported in the race for the Carnival King and Queen. The crowning glory of the Purple and Gold lay in Publicity because the halls of N. S. H. were filled with readable, if not artistic, posters bearing class and clever slogans and boosting the Iunior candidates. Pagel4 l938 By far the most important event of any Iunior year is the Iunior-Senior Banquet, that grand party at which the Seniors are bade farewell by their successors, the Iuniors. This Iunior class not only offered the Seniors a lingering goodbye, but the theme of the banquet, "Happy Landings," went even farther and displayed lunior hope for Senior success in 1ife's great adventure that begins where high school ends. 1 nv a 1 a As the faded colors of summer changed to the brilliant colors of autumn in the year 1937, the Purple and Gold assumed the leadership of the school for the first time in three years. Charles Sterett was elected to lead the five score and seventeen returning Seniors as class president. To assist him in his duties were vice-president Clarence Belknap, to keep the class minutes was Bette Io ludy, and Treasurer He'en Dale was given contnol of Senior finances. The choice of the class for faculty sponsor was P. R. M. Armstrong and to lead the class in "SENl," lane Brown was chosen yell leader for the second time in her high school career. The first accomplishment of the Senior year was the attainment of a goal of 100 per cent in the Activity Ticket sale. After much persuasion every Senior was induced to purchase an Activity Ticket and for these perserverant efforts, a large banner was the appropriate award. Senior activities in November were enlivened by an Overall and Apron party on the seventeenth night of that month. Seventy students enjoyed the doughnuts and cider and everyone made merry for a few gleeful hours. With acting ability in their grasp, and oonfidence in their hearts, Bill White and Bette Io Iudy led a handful of Seniors to victory in the P. E. O. Little Theater Contest. The prize which they won was that of ten dollars, and the prestige gained by the Senior Class was not to be ignored. After class rings were purchased from the Herff-lones Company at an average oost to each student buyer of 37.50, plans were made for the publication of the 1938 "Nevamo," for which this history was compiled. Much enthusiasm was necessary on the part of the Seniors to instill enough school spirit in the underclassmen to make them purchase a book. This being accomplished, however, work was started and in your possession is the result of laborious efforts. A "Nevamo" activity in which both the body and soul of the Seniors were placed was the thrilling King and Queen Contest. Handsome Robert Hayes was the Senior candidate for King and his Lady Fair was Bette lo Iudy. By earnestly and energetically living up to the motto, "lT SHALL BE DONE," each senior reached the goal of selling five tickets to boost this contest. Not only did the Senior candidates win but the Senior Class sold more tickets than both the Iunior and Sophomore Classes together. As an appropriate supplement to yearbook activities, the class of '38, with the cooperation of the Board of Education, erected a large bulletin board in the study hall, their daily meeting place. lt was constructed for use at that time, and was willed by a majority vote to all future Senior classes. When this account was written, the Senior Class Play, named "The Royal Family," had just been cast. This was an hilarious comedy, the result of a collaboration by Edna Ferber and George Kaufman. Its plot consisted of a parody on the famous Barrymore family and it showed the humorous results of their mad theatrical schemes. Selected by Mr. Angus Springer to portray this hysterical family and its associates were Helen Margaret Warren, Bill White, Bette Io ludy, Inez lean Tow, David Inwood, Iunior Shellenberger, Charles Sterett, Ned Clemensen, Parker Wilson, Phyllis Runyan, Doris Mae Smith, Robert Autenrieth, Harry Hammer, George Dalton and Roberta McCawley. By this time, the Seniors began to realize that their last year in Nevada High School was rapidly drawing near its conclusion, and were anticipating with regret the oommencement acivities. ln view of this cruel fact, their activities were characterized by vim, vigor, and vitality as an effort was generated to make the last few months shine with records of glorious deeds.

To the Sophomores, we leave all the woodwork and blackboards upon which to carve their hearts and names. We hereby will and bequeath the following articles to wit: The charming and lovable personality of Betty Bush, to Bette Sue Crawford. Helen Margaret Warren's entertaining prattle and gift of gossip to Mary Clare Stevens. Vernon Hudson's ability of concentration to Edwin Stewart. The foolish notions of Preston Randolph Mellic Armstrong to Margaret May Beard. The attractive laugh of Marion Scott to Marilyn Kuhn, so that she may be noticed more. The mischievous way of Robert Autenreith to Billy Skinner. That "come hither" look of lo Cooper to Geraldine Buck, with the hope that it will bring results. ' The bashfulness of Loretta Leveling and lrene Lock to Lovine Greer and Marye Ruth Tow. loe Wachtel's ability to grow a mustache to Wally Clemensen. Inez lean Tow's ability to vamp Clarence Belknap to Gayle Evans. To Nell Dorman in her record, the tardy marks of Charles Sterett. The curly hair of Quinton Torbett to Don Brazier.

To guide the class, Lynd Cohick was elected President: lohn Denman, Vice-President, Betty Sue Crawford, Secretary: and Edwin Stewart, Treasurer. Qne of the major activities undertaken by this class was the Kid Party which took place on the night of December 18, 1936. Prizes were won by Lovine Greer, Betty lane Everett, and Iunior Hawkins. To their surprise, but to their delight, the Sophomore Class, in the contest for a Carnival King and Queen, won second place in the race. The candidates were Betty Sue Crawford and Keith Caywood. With renewed determination, the former Sophomore Class, now Iuniors, started a new year out right by electing Iohn Denman as President. The other officers were Edwin Stewart, Vice-Presidentp Marye Ruth Tow, Secretary: and Lovine Greer, Treasurer. Miss Margaret Beard was elected sponsor. When the annual Activity Ticket sale came along, the Iunior Class, along with the other two upper classes reached 100 per cent, an attainment of which they are all justly proud. The biggest "thrill" of the year was the lunior Class Play. ln the history of the Nevada Senior High School, no lunior Class Play has ever been such a financial success. The title of the play was "Growing Pains." The proceeds were used in attaining one of the most beautiful of all events-the lunior-Senior Banquet. Soon the yearbook King and Queen contest was held. The lunior Class selected Betty Sue Crawford for their Queen, and Harold Young was their King. With the achievements of these two years as a background, the Class of '39 looks forward to an outstanding Senior year. Page26- V.. ,. ..,.,.. -.

Page 28 l938 IUNIOB AND SOPI-ICMCBE COMEDY CUES "Does anyone here know anything about music?" asked Mr. George, coming into the study hall. Iames Williams, Bob Swick, and George Parker volunteered. "Then come along and shift the piano in the auditorium," said Mr. George. Cletis Ramsey was telling her friend about the date she had the night be- fore. "l had a date last night with a mind reader," she boasted. "Did you have lots of fun?" asked Geraldine Vineyard. "Not a bit! " replied Cletis, "Why, all he did was sit around and blush." Earl Mayefield was strolling through the cemetery reading the inscriptions on the tombstones. He came to one which read: "Not dead, just sleeping." Scratching his head, Earl remarked: "He sure ain't foolin' anybody but himself." Phillip Zimmerman glanced at A. D. Ellis and said: "I know a person who looks so much like you that one could hardly tell you apart." A. D. was quite excited and hurriedly replied, "You haven't paid him that two bits I loaned you three months ago, have you?" Karl Keller and Dick Coffman were engaged in quite a heated argument. Karl: "You're the dumbest person I ever saw." Mr. Armstrong: "Boys, you forget that I am in the room." Thereupon the students were subdued without a ripple. Wally Clemensen: "While we're sitting in the moonlight, l'd like to ask you- Evelyn Iackson: "Yes, darling?" Wally: "If we couldn't move over, l'm sitting on a nail." Betty Sue Crawford was afraid she had gotten the English lesson mixed up, so she leaned forward and poked Edwin Stewart. "ls that the lesson for tomorrow?" she asked. "No," said Edwin, irritably, "that's my ribs." Coach Neel: "Say, where in blazes are you two going? Why don't you get busy? Burl D. Crawford: "We're working, all right, we're carrying this plank down to the first floor." Coach: "What plank?" Otis Barnett: "Well, by golly, if we ain't gone and forgot the plank! " Suspected of being mentally deficient, George Offenberger was asked by a psychologist: "How many ears has a cat?" "Two,"answered George. "How many eyes has a cat?" "'I'wo." "And how many legs has a cat?" "Say," asked George, "didn't you ever see a cat?" After terrific struggle, Ioe Moriarty finally finished his Latin examination paper, and then at the end wrote: "Dear Miss Beard," if you sell any of my answers to the funny papers I expect you to split 50-50 with me." Dorothy Iean Iudy: fat almond counterl "Who attends to the nuts?" Wise Guy: "Be patient, I'll wait on you in a minute."

Ours was the first class to enter Senior High with such a distinction. The coronation of our candidates for Prince and Princess of both Carnivals was the means of our winning prominence in Iunior High. To guide such a promising class we chose Dick Coffman as our president, Richard Potter, vice-president, Mary Martha Sterett, secretaryy Virgie Lee lohn- son, treasurerp Marilyn Kuhn, Crimson and Gray reporter: and Iune Lois Hopkins to lead us in cheering our victories. Mr. Limbaugh was elected as our sponsor, and he has led us through our trials and tribulations with wisdom and grace. Our first important achievement in 1937 was reaching the one-hundred per cent goal in the Activity Ticket sale. Because of the fear of defeat instilled in the hearts of the other classes by the Sophomores, all Senior High reached the high goal of one-hundred per cent for the first time in the history of Nevada High School. The next contest was between our class and the Seniors for the lunior Class Play ticket sale. Though we worked long and hard, the Seniors did a little better and were awarded a banner for first prize. Since we had sold over one-hundred fifty per cent, the Iunior and Senior classes very graciously gave us a pennant for our efforts. The spirit of our class has been characterized by a feeling of unity and cooperation among all the members.. We work, not as individuals, but all to- gether with the feeling, "one for all, and all for one." We have many ideas and ideals which We hope to attain in later years of our high school life. Our aim is to have a gold band, the sign of outstanding achievement, placed on our staff of leadership in our Senior year. Our mark is high, but it will be reached in the years to come. Behold Us Sophomores Oh School! Behold us Sophomores! We're doing the best we can- To raise the standards of N. H. S. And to meet the teachers' plan. We don't mind the Seniors' laugh, And the Juniors who make fun, Or anything that they may do- For our pleasures have just begun. Soon they'll leave the task to us. And out in the world they'll go, And We'll do the work that they did- As well as they, we know! All Hail, to dear old N. H. S. May her name forever stand! We'll do our best to spread her fame Throughout the entire land. -LuCreta Miller. "- Page 30 l938 'Qi --zz 'Eg fer :'-A EQ? -il.

The 1937-38 Student Council of the Nevada Senior High School entered its sixth year of service with David Inwood as the President and Miss Margaret Beard and Mr. P. R. M. Armstrong as sponsors. The other officers are as follows: Vice-President, Iohn Denman: Secretary, Inez lean Tow: and Treasurer, Bette Io Iudy. The bi-monthly sessions of this organization are held for the purpose and aim to abide by and to co-operate with the desires of the student body in all matters in which school activities are concerned. This in turn creates a better understanding between the faculty and the students. This year the revised Constitution went into effect providing many changes. Instead of club representation, as was done in former years, two members were elected at large from each classe the Sophomore, Iunior, and Senior Classes respectively. In this way a new opportunity was established, whereby the best talent of the Class might be selected. One of the biggest and most important projects ever undertaken by any council was the publishing of a handbook. Only through the tireless efforts of the council members and sponsors was such a project made a success. The entire management was under the supervision of students together with a sponsor. The handbook contains all the useful material the students need to know while in school, and is used extensively throughout the entire student body. To create a better feeling between the Student Council and the student body and also as an aid to the Principal's Office, the Student Council has established a new kind of service known as the "lnformation Table."

Miss Ethyl Winders was elected sponsor and has continued to hold that position. The purpose of the organization has been to develop loyal citizenship among the pupils: create an enthusiasm for superior scholarship, stimulate a desire to serve faithfully one's school, community, and country, promote trust- worthy leadership: and instil exemplary qualities of character for the pupils of the lunior High School. All through the years these ideals have been its aim and goal. New members have always been initiated into the society in an assembly with an impressive and appropriate ceremony. Each new member is given a pin, the emblem of the society, which is a flaming torch. It is considered a high honor to be a member of this society, because membership is based on school citizenship, scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Members must stand in the upper ten per cent of their class. They must also have been in attendance in the Nevada High School one year, and be a member of the eighth or ninth grade. During the current year, there has been thirty members in the society. The officers are: Edna Keena, president, Robert West, vice-president: and Cara Williams, secretary and treasurer. At the meetings which are usually held each quarter, topics consistent with the purpose of the organization are chosen for consideration. -Editor, Margaret Welborn, -Assistant Editor, Edna Keena.

At this time the chapter consisted of five charter members. Each year since then the society has increased till at the present the total membership through the fourteen years of its existence in Nevada High School is one hundred eighty-six. In the latter part of the nineteen hundred thirty-seven school year seven students were elected from the Iunior Class to become members of the Honor Society. Those elected were Maxine Maple, Doris Mae Smith, Bette Io Iudy, Helen Margaret Warren, David Inwood, Clarence Belknap and Charles Sterett. Early in the fall of this the nineteen hundred thirty-eight school year, the Honor Society met with their sponsor, Miss Anna Clack, for the purpose of electing officers. Officers elected were, Helen Margaret Warren, president: Clarence Belknap, vice-president, Doris Mae Smith, secretaryg and Roberta McCawley, treasurer. Roberta automatically became a member of the chapter as she was a member in Columbia, Missouri, the year before. At the beginning of the second semester of this year, five additional Seniors were chosen. These newly elected members were Margaret Welborn, Marian Scott, Inez lean Tow, Iunior Hardy and Eugene Ashbaugh. These members were initiated in assembly where they took the pledge and were presented their pins, a symbol of their membership in the National Honor Society. Admission into the National Honor Society reflects quite an honor, as the cardinal objectives upon which membership is based includes excellence of achievement in Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Character. To exalt these objectives and hold them ever before the school as goals toward which all should strive is the ultimate purpose of the National Honor Society. The emblem of the National Honor Society is the keystone and the flaming torch. The colors, royal blue and gold, are symbolic of the motto, "Light is the Symbol of Truth," Blue is the symbol of truth and gold is the light with which truth radiates through the world. The colors are ever before us, the blue from the sky above and the gold radiant in the sunlight, always serving as a reminder of the duties and responsibilities as members of the National Honor Society. -Editor, Margaret Welborn, -Assistant Editor, Helen M.

The junior High Student Council was organized in i936 for the purpose of cooperating with students and teachers in developing a better junior High School by the promotion of good citizenship and by encouraging student participation in school activities. The sponsors were Miss Elizabeth Shaw, and Miss Gladys Radford. The officers for the first year were: president, Richard Potter: vice-president, Mary Claire Stevens: secretary, Ronald Dixson: treasurer, Wilda jean Morey: and Crimson and Gray reporter, Dorothy lean ludy. To the untiring activity of this corp of officers during the first difficult years, the Council owes its successful establishment. Some of the activities which the Council undertook last year were the buying of the flag with the cooperation of the Senior High Student Council: the chartering of new lunior High clubs: spon- soring, jointly with Senior High, the carnival: assuming also, the responsibility for the junior High Stunt, thus relieving the home room teachers: sponsoring two assembly programs: cooperating in making the Handbook: and revising the service point record. Each member was given a Certificate of Honor from the school for the help which he gave during that year. The officers for i937-1938 are: president, Winston Baucom: vice-president, Robert West: secretary, Edna V. Keena: treasurer, lean Eddlemon: Crimson and Gray reporter, Billy Io Braswell. Our first project of this year was to provide guides for the new students of our school on the opening day. The junior High Student Council oversees the contests between the different home rooms in Attendance, Scholarship, and Courtesy. These awards are given by the Student Council president in the lunior High assemblies. The activity ticket sale contest for junior High was managed by the Council. The Council also sent their president to the state convention at St. loseph, Missouri. Some of the other projects were the chartering of new clubs and the rechartering of old clubs, the helping on the all-school float for the Armistice Day Parade, and the helping with the information Desk in the main hall. The latest and most promising project is the selling of seals to restore wild life to our country. This is a nation-wide project. Thus, you see how' rapidly the lunior High Student Council has grown, And, if it grows as rapidly and efficiently in the future as in the past, what a worthwhile organization it will be. -Editor, Margaret Welborn, gfkssistant Editors: Edna Keena, Mary lean Windler. e Page 44 1938 ORCHESTRA Top Row: Charles Foster: Doris Peckman: Edward Cunningham: Karl Keller: lune Smith: Frank Swagger: Harold Scrutchfield: Edgar Davidson: Gordon Hadley: lim Ed Rinehart: Tack Graves: Edna Lee Barnett: Toe Wachtel: Helen Beth Windler: Margaret Butner.

The Nevada High School orchestra consists of approximately sixty-five members under the direction of Mr. Harold E. George. Mr. George has assumed the position vacated by William C. Rice at the close of the last term, and has been doing remarkably well considering the short time he has been here. The orchestra is an all-school organization built on a competitive basis. Musicians from all grades in the high schoo' compete each year for positions in the orchestra: those being judged the best are ranked first-chair and on down to the last player. More work has been done in ensembles this year than ever before. They consist of pupils who are interested enough in music to devote extra time to the cultivation of their talents and who enjoy the special group work. These ensembles are required to practice once a week for one hour, and may or may not be coached by Mr. George. The students greatest satisfaction in this type of work is being asked to appear on programs for various clubs and civic organizations in the town. The ensembles which have been active this year are the string trio, the brass quartet, and the clarinet quartet. The string trio is composed of violin, played by Margaret Welborn: cel'o, played by Mary Lou Peters, with Marilyn Kuhn at the piano. This ensemble has been in popular demand for the various church services throughout the city. The brass quartet has appeared several times in assembly programs, and is composed of first trumpet, Edgar Davidson: second trumpet, Harold Scrutchfield: trombone, Edward Cunningham, and baritone, Tom Scott. The clarinet quartet has also appeared on the school assembly programs, and is made up of first c'arinet, Harry Hammer: second clarinet, Iunior Hawkins: alto clarinet, Roy Moberg: and bass clarinet, Patti Lea Braswell. The work of the orchestra, in addition to its tri-weekly practices, is to give concerts for money and to appear in guest performances. The most important public appearances are those played in order to balance a rather shaky budget. These concerts, under the title of "Instrumental Night," are given in col aboration with other organizations of the music department, and a small admission fee is charged. The money thus far raised has been used to increase the musical library and enlarge the instrumentation. Perhaps the busiest time of the year for the orchestra is the Spring Festival season, when members work as individuals and as a group to improve their organization for the annual contests. --Editor, Margaret Welborn, -Assistant Editor, Harold Lawless.

The seventy-five members of the band are selected for their proficiency in playing a reed, brass, or percussion instrument, and membership is competi- tive. Under the leadership of Mr. Harold E. George, the band has increased by fifteen members this year. Perhaps no organization in the school does as much free advertising for the school as does the band. Besides appearing in school programs, assemblies, and athletic events, the band plays at public concerts and parades. First place honors were won in the Armistice Day contest. Nevada was also represented by the band at the American Royal held in Kansas City, Missouri, in October. The band has made, all in all, about thirty public appearances this year, other than the regular school assemblies. Particular attention has been given to the organization of ensemblies for the reed and brass instruments. The clarinet quartet was composed of Harry Hammer, Iunior Hawkins, Freda Marie Mitchell, and Patti Braswell. Those who played in the brass quartet were Harold Scrutchfield and Edgar Davidson, cor- nets: Tom Scott, baritone: and Edward Cunningham, trombone. Five ambitious members organized a German Band, "The Hungry Five." Those students were Harry Hammer and Iunior Hawkins, clarinets: Edgar Davidson, trumpet: Ed- ward Cunningham, trombone: and Frank Swagger, tuba. The members of the band wish to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Harold George for his patient leadership, and their drum major, Margaret Butner. -Editor, Margaret Welborn, -Assistant Editor, Iunior Hawkins.

The most pretentious dramatic offering of the year was "The Royal Family," by Kaufman and Ferber. The production was sponsored by the Senior Class and directed by Angus Springer. This hilarious satire on the private lives of the Barryrnore's was presented on May 9 and lO, l938, by a cast whose efforts brought glory both to itself and to its director and sponsors. Their work convinced critics that "difficult" plays with large casts are not beyond the range of talent to be found in the student body of the High School. -Editor, Margaret Welborn, -Assistant Editor, Phyllis Runyan.

The profits to be used for the Iunior-Senior banquet were the greatest in local Iunior Class Play history. The play depicts the dilemma of the Mclntyres as they see their children cast into the cataracts of adolescence. Advise as they may, their efforts are fruitless as the bumps and knocks of experience carve their impressions on their character. George, Terry and their friends have many experiences but the end- ing is bright and promising for all.

With Ioe Moriarty as vice-president, Ioy Koeger as secre- tary-treasurer, and Patti Lea Braswell as "Crimson and Gray" reporter, the club "got off to a good start." The members, being enthusiastic cross-word puzzle fans, report each Wed- nesday aiternoon to room 202, one hundred per cent strong with but few excep- tions. There they search their brains and the dictionary until every missing Word has been found. On some occasions, ambition rules and they make their own puzzles. One such project had for its theme the Nevada High School and its students. This Was submitted to the school paper. Among other projects ot interest is the keeping ot a scrapbook. lt consists of puzzles Worked by the members, articles clipped from the "Crimson and Gray," pictures ot the club, and puzzles which the members have made. LuCreta Miller and Donna Bail has charge of the scrapbook. During the short lite of the club the members have shown what even a small group can do when there is cooperation. For the purpose ot raising funds there have been home-made candy sales. On these occasions there has been such excellent cooperation that better results were obtained with ten members than are generally obtained with similar groups of twenty-tive and thirty members. -Editor, Margaret Welborn, -Assistant Editors: 'LuCreta Miller, Ruby McClellan. -- ---Page 52 l938 HCRIMSQN AND GRAY" t Standing: Helen Margaret W'arreng Roberta McCawleyg Dorothy Swickg Miss Burns, sponsor: Margaret Welbornp Bette lo Iudyp Lorene Mowryp Iewel Fae Smith.

GEORGE PARKER, Guard George, a Sophomore, was on his all season. GLENN GAFF, Center Glenn was going to be promoted from B Team to A Team but was taken -out of the running by a lung infection. IUNIOR BROWN, Center lunior filled the shoes of Glenn Gaff and did a very good job of it. He is a lunior. good toes RUSSELL ALLEN, Forward Russell, a Sophomore, counted for many points this year. JAMES CLEMMONS, Forward limmy, a Freshman, was one of our battling men who fought all the time the game was in progress. RICHARD POTTER, Guard Richard, a Sophomore brother of Ted Potter, carved himself a name in basketball history this year. WINFRED BROWN, Guard Winfred, a Sophomore, although not a regular, played a good many quarters. l938 - BASKETBALL The 1938 Tigers may not have been champions, but they were very definitzly, championship material. They weredefeated several times during the season, but Neosho was the only team who "stopped" them twice. Our quir1tet's biggest scoring spree was against our anclent rival, Fcrt Scolt. The Kansans were sent home on the short end of a fifty-one to fourteen score. In the Big 8 Conference Tournament, held at Lamar, the Tigers held their winning s'ride into the finals, whore Neosho eked out a four point victory to take the cup. Gerald Reed was high point man for the tourney and he and Captain Akers w-:ro placed on the all-star team. The team journeyed to Marshall, Mo., to compete in the tournament held by M"ssouri Valley College. Although the team was eliminated rather early they made quite an impression on the fans. An excerpt from a letter received by Coach Neel from a Missouri Va ley student reads, "The cheers and acclaim when Reed's name was read for the all-star team shows that you fellows were not forgotten." The State Regional Tournament, held at loplin was also one in which the Nevada boys showed up to good advantage. They defeated Washburn in the first round, and Carthage in the second. lasper, holders of a 24 straight victory record, was the next victim, Burl Crawford, sophomore forward, dropping through twelve of our total twenty-seven points. The Tigers lost to Neosho, who pnoved a stumbling-block throughout the season, in the semi-finals, and to Granby in the playoffs. Cap'ain Akers, a victim of motor trouble, arrived only in time to play the final seven minutes of the latter game. During this tourney, the boys traveled six hundred and fifty miles, played five games in as many days, and every man attended school each of the days. Seven men, Reed, Crawford, Barnett, Wilson, Current, and Clemensen, bore the brunt of the Tiger attack. Counting in the four days preceding the tournament, the team rolled up a total of nine hundred and forty miles traveled and seven games pfayed in the nine days. "Gay" Reed, our well-known "southpaw" forward, was undoubtedly the outstanding player of the season. "Gay" is a great shot and a fine floor player. The watchword of our opponents was "stop Reed," but the few times they succeeded Burl Crawford managed to toss in his share, N. H. S. can expect a lot from Burl in the next two years. Otis Barnett, guard, was a power on the defense and a smart offensive player. He made few scores, but he "set up" a lot for the other players. Robert Current, forward, contributed his bit toward the team's success. He fit well into the Tiger lineup. "Sparky" Clemensen, guard, was definitely a fine floor player and also came in for his share of the scores. "Sparky" saw a great deal of action. Parker Wilson, guard, was a dependable smooth sailing relief man. He "tried" every minute he was on the oourt, and was at his best on defense. Clarence Belknap, guard, and Floyd Grooms, forward, saw their share of time on the court as the season progressed. They were cxceptionally good relief men. Cap't. I. B. "Milo" Akers "bulled" his way through the hardest scrimmages and charged along to his quota of points. He was high point man in several games. Perhaps "Pop" Akers had some- thing to do with that. During the early part of the Tiger schedule, Lynn Keeny played regularly at the center position. Lynn was exceptionally good on rebound shots. He was very well liked by teammates and there was great regret when Lynn was removed from the lineup by an attack of appendicitis. We thought for cr While that we would lose him altogether, but he has since recovered. Also a casualty to illness was Glenn Gaff, lanky "B" team star. We hated to see Glenn go, but he may recover to play college ball. We hope so. The season schedule follows, by looking it over you will see what was meant when in "the editorial" we said, "They were very definitely championship material." We'll also doff our hats to Coach Neel, not only as a good coach, but as a fine fellow to know. -Bill White. THE SEASON Nevada Opp. Nevada Opp. Eldorado Springs .... .... 2 8 25 Mt.

Under the sponsorship of Miss Evelyn Dail, the Girls physical education director, the Girls Athletic Associations has experienced a Very successful year. Officers of the organization included the following: Peggy Lindquist, President: Iune Lois Hopkins, Vice-President, Ianie Beth Tones, Secretaryg Margaret Lindquist, Treasurer. This year the G. A. A. had approximately sixty members. On Fridays the club had business meetings. On Tuesday night of each week the Senior G. A. A. held play night, and since the athletic ability was so different between the Senior and Iunior members the lunior girls played in the recreation room each Monday after school. Entertainment at these play nights were basketball, baseball, volyball, aerial darts, deck tennis, etc. Several basketball games were played with visiting teams. The teams were composed of any Senior G. A. A. girl who wished to play. For attending these play nights each girl was awarded five points. When a total of 50 points had been earned an "N" was awarded to that person. Several new things were done this year, such as: if a girl earned one hundred extra points an emblem was awarded. Also a list of legitimate excuses were established. The G. A. A. had two successful candy sales. One to pay for pictures, and one to increase funds. The dues for the year were 25cg this went to pay for the letters and emblems, and for the big G. A. A. picnic. This year the G. A. A. put on stunts between the halves of football and basketball games. Between the half of a football game the captain was presented with a Victory Banner. This was met with much spirit. At the basketball games, aerial darts and deck tennis were played by the Senior girls and stunts were done by the Iunior G. A. A. girls and gym classes. ePeggy Lindquist.

SENIOR CLUB The Senior "M" club of 1937-38 underwent a very successful year under the leadership of Miss Evelyn Dail, Athletic instructor. At the first meeting of the year, approximately 25 students enrolled for membership. The following officers were elected: President, Margaret Lindquist: Secretary, Patty lean Stump: Treasurer, lnda Mae Beasley: Hike Master, Viola Morey, and Assistant Hike Master, Theda Downey. Work was started immediately on earning state letters, which in order to have a girl must earn 1,000 points in posture, scholastic ability, health, good sportsmanship, as well as athletics, service and sports. ln October, the Senior "M" members went on a hay ride and Weiner roast which proved to be a big success. Still in the same month a ticket sale contest was waged between Iunior "M" and Senior "M" selling tickets to the motion picture, "Stella Dallas." Although the contest resulted in defeat for Senior "M" they showed their good sportsmanship by entertaining the Iunior "M" with a valentine party in February, held in the gymnasium. The theme of the party was "The Good Ship Valentine," and the girls wore such clothes as would be worn on the deck of a ship. Games and stunts were carried on throughout the evening. Refreshments were served of heart sandwiches, ice cream, cookies, candy hearts, and red punch. ln March another ticket sale was held in which the members of the club sold tickets to "Tom Sawyer." This was carried on in order to obtain another page for snapshots in the Nevamo. Many girls earned letters this year which helped to show that the club had a successful and co-operative year. -Editor, Margaret Welborn. -Assistant Editor, Margaret Lindquist. IUNIOR CLUB The lunior "M" is an entirely separate organization but the work is carried on in much the same way as in the Senior Any girl in Iunior High is eligible for membership in the club. The purpose of the Iunior 'M" is to enable girls to earn their State letters. The officers elected for the year l937A38 were: President, lean Eddlemon: Secretary, Marjorie Scott: Treasurer, Mae Brown: Crimson and Gray Reporter, Perline Ramsey: Hike Master, I-oan Lindquist. The junior first activity included a series of hikes. These were usually taken on a school day though one sunrise hike on a Saturday morning was enjoyed by all the club members. The Iunior share of the proceeds from the sale of picture show tickets was spent for State letters principally. Other purchases included a pedometer for measuring hiking distances and a first aid kit to use on hikes. The Iunior "M" also purchased a cot, mattress, linen, and blankets to be used in Miss Dail's checkroom. This was a much needed addition to the physical education equipment. The junior letter is comparable to the senior letter and a girl must excel in the same require- ments, which are posture, scholastic ability, health, good sportsmanship, athletics, service and sports. -Editor, Margaret Welborn. -Assistant Editor, Margaret Lindquist. -- Page 63 -'- - '- The NEVAMO Q M5 It ilk fig Vx M,- Y , ,, ,max 53,4 ,., it I iii it Q Y I fit?
