in honest work.
In the last week of sweltering
August, 864 teen-agers reluct-
antly left the carefree days of
ll:OO breakfasts and lazy after-
noons beside the pool to return
once more to the halls of N. H.
S. They were caught up in the
quick tempo of dresses and dates
for the "Anti-Van". . . election
of "big wheels" . . . cramming
frantically for the notorious
history exam . . . juggling points
for the honor roll . . . cheering
with fierce pride as our Tigers
defeated Carthage in the Home-
coming game . . . endless hours
of rehearsals for plays . . .
scurrying to meet deadlines . . .
all the work and the fun that
make an American education a part
of life that will never be for-
School moved along with well-
oiled precision. All things
pointed to another year of typical
Nevada school life--jammed with
the 3 R's and all the extras that
make the difference.
On the night of November 29,
the play cast for "Dino" was
having dress rehearsalg members
of the NEVAMO staff were putting
the final touches on their first
quota of Sl pages for their
December 1 deadlineg the F.H.A.
members trouped off to Butler for
a gay skating party . . .
AND THEN . . .
OUR NIGHT T0 REMEMBER . . .
Shortly before 11:00 on that memorable
night, Mrs. Leon Allen, who lives in the
first house south of the high school, was
awakened by the cracking of windows . See-
ing flames shooting from the building, she
called her husband who ran to the home of
Roy Wert to summon the fire department.
Spreading rapidly from the lowest floor,
the fire of undetermined origin gained head-
way through the air ducts, and enveloped
the central section. After the flames shot
up through the ducts, there was no hope of
extinguishing the fire which spread relent-
lessly to both the senior high wing on the
east and the Gyrmiasium-auditorium section
on the west.
Fire departments from Ft. Scott and
Butler soon arrived in Nevada. The fire
department from the State Hospital and a
unit of men from the National Guard also
assisted local firemen.
As news of the fire was relayed, many
Nevadans hurried to the scene. They stood
helplessly and almost silently by as they
watched the roaring flames completely
consume a building filled with thousands
of memories .
As people watched the tragic occur-
rence, they were grateful for the fact
that the disaster did not happen while
school was in session. Had the fire be-
gun ten hours later, 864 students would
have been attending a scheduled assem-
bly in the auditorium. Citizens found
some comfort in the fact that things
could have been much worse, and view-
ing the shell of the structure the next
morning, they realized that dismal
scenes like these were commonplace in
countries ravaged by wars and struggles
Even as fire flickered in various parts
of the building, the long process of reor-
ganization was begun by the school board
members as they met in the first of a long
series of board meetings. Even as the
charred-walls of N .H. S. were being battered
to the ground, plans were being made for
the future. Slowly a semblance of order
Fortunately, important records were
protected by the fireproof vaults . Once
more the countless files and schedules were
filled out, grades recorded, books, desks,
and other essential supplies were ordered
Successful negotiations were carried out for securing the
new Pine Street Church Annex to house the Senior High School
studentsg Longstreth's Market resounded with noises quite un-
usual to a normal store as eager Freshmen returned to their
booksg the Nevada Motor Company building and the former Safe-
way Store building took on their new roles as Junior High Schools
without complaint. Ringing the old-fashioned bell became quite
an honor for seventh and eighth graders as the Strange became
ordinary, and the unusual became common. Bleak partitioned
walls soon were covered with Santa and the reindeer. Windows
were plastered with miniature blizzards, and the Wise Men
traveled to Bethlehem in many rooms. According to tradition,
the Senior Christmas tree was decorated and erected. Although
it was probably the smallest one in the long line of Senior trees,
and Bryan auditorium seemed different from the time-honored
spot "under the clock" on the second floor of N .H.S. , Seniors
felt that traditions must be kept as usual.

MEN WITH A PLAN--Members of the School Board register approval as they study the preliminary plans
of the proposed new Junior-Senior High School building. Seated are School Board members George Lo-
gan, Hubert Fowler, Secretaryg O. M. Flory, Presidentg and Dr. Roy Pearse, Vice-President. Standing
are Dwight Brown, Dean Lintecum, architectsg C. H. Jones, Ir. , Superintendent of Schoolsg and Dr.
Standlee Love, member of the School Board.
The task of operating the schools of the
R-5 District is a big one, but the problems
of 1956-57 have been multiplied enormously
The Nevada Junior-Senior High School was
destroyed by fire the night of November 29.
By noon of November 30 a School Board com-
mittee was negotiating for emergency quar-
ters. Various board committees were at
work daily on some phase of the emergency,
and within the next five weeks, the School
Board met fourteen times .
The first students to return to school, the
eighth graders, were at their desks within
seven days . By january 2 all Junior-Senior
high school students were attending their

in generous comrudeship.
N.H.S. means books, assignments
tests, and grade cards. But it also
means dates, dances, parties, elec-
tions, queens, corsages, and never-
to-be forgotten friendships. In addi-
tion to learning about the Constitution,
teen-agers learn the art of getting
along with others, a skill they will
always need long after they have for-
gotten the verbs in grammar and the
formulas in math.
We are proud to go to a school
which has turned the Halloween Seas-
on into a gala period with a traditional
Anti-Van Party. It was fun to decor-
ate the gym, to meet with committee
members to plan the Spook Room, and
to choose the pictures for the annual
all-school party. There is excitement
guessing about who is going to be the
Homecoming Queen selected by the
football players .
Spring brings weeks of planning
and wondering about the Prom. The
girls dream about frothy formals, and
the fellows debate the question--"to
buy an orchid, or not to buy an or-
Then at the end of the year, there
used to be the gym jammed with people
on "Sign Night." Now, the place has
changed, but the name is the same.
We will still write, "It's been swell
knowing you, " for the comradeship of
high school is a great thing in an N.H.
S. student's life.

in the inspirotion that comes
from contact with all that is
truest ond best, in books,
in people, in life.
What loyal son or daughter of N. H.
S. still does not thrill to see the band
marching proudly to the strains of the
Tiger fight song . . . recall the nerve-
wracking tension of the Silver Tiger or
homecoming game . . . remember the
mornings of hoarse throats after a bas-
ketball game . . . the elation felt when
a basketball swishes through the net . .
jumping a little as the starter's gun
sounds . . . the heartbreak of losing in
the final seconds . . . cheering madly
when the football soars between the
crossbars . . . singing fight songs on
the long bus trips to out of town games
. . . feeling a wave of humbleness as
the national anthem 'is played in the
darkness before the game . . . ?
The practice of good sportsmanship
is but one of the traditions upheld with
pride by every student of N .I-I.S.

NEVADA WRAPS UP SEASON IN SECOND PLACE
Fighting desperately against uneven
odds, the Nevada Tigers came out of
Conference play with a 6-2 record, losing
to Lamar and Aurora only.
The Tigers opened their season by
tasting defeat at the hands of Aurora, 13 to
6, but they bounced back to hand the Mount
Vernon Mountaineers a 35 to 19 whipping.
Undaunted by the prospect of facing the
favored Monett eleven, the Nevada squad
made believers out of everyone by running
over Monett 20 to 6. The fate of Monett
was shared by Cassville, as they were
smeared by the big score of 46 to 13. La-
mar was the only team to capitalize on
Nevada's injury list, because they took the
Tigers to the cleaners by defeating them 27
to 26. Nevada eked out a win from the
Neosho boys by edging them out 13 to 12.
Webb City did not make a good showing
against the Tigers, and the only thing they
could do was to hold them to 26 points as
compared to their 7.
The crowning point in the team's
illustrious career centered around their
last game. They took the Tigers from
Carthage down the trail of the defeated.
Our Tigers had had the privilege of beating
the unbeaten. This victory contributed
immensely to the success of the Homecom-
ing and the dance after it. It also gave us
undisputed second place in the Big Nine.

in loyalty to our high school,
the fostering mother of these
When the N.H.S. student enrolls
each new school year, he has the feeling
that this particular day marks a mile-
stone in his life.
The biggest bridge to cross is the
one from the grade school to the Junior-
Senior High School. It is hard to keep
from feeling that grade school was really
just "Kid stuff, " and now life is just be-
ginning. To a seventh grade boy hurry-
ing to reach study hall on time it is quite
a shock to have a towering Senior boy
practically step over him as the Senior
strolls casually to class.
Every fall things seem easier. The
locker combinations are now conqueredg
the forms seem less trouble to fill, the
Seniors seem less important, and the
Junior High students seem to get smaller
each year to the once green seventh
Loyalty means working hard to sup-
port your class's candidates and prac-
ticing long hours to make your class play
the best. It all used to be climaxed by
the annual class day. At that time,
classes moved from their sections to the
sections of the auditorium which they
would occupy the next year. There was
such a special significance in sitting in
the center of the large auditorium and
being one of the few privileged to demon-
strate your class loyalty with the time-
honored "S-E-N-I3 S-E-N-Ig S-E-N-I-O-
R-Sl SENIORS, SENIORS, YES, YES,
The building is now gone--but the
loyalty to our school is still there.

and nobler school.
The firms represented in this book
have made it possible to produce an an-
nual at a cost which makes a book avail-
able to almost every student. The coop-
eration and confidence of these forward-
looking businessmen have helped to fin-
ance the publication of this book.
The NEVAMO staff especially appre-
ciates the assistance given by them when
it became necessary to reconstruct the
business records of the advertising sales.
The staff extends its special vote of
thanks to Joe Bradham and Pierre Welt-
mer of the Graphic Arts Studio who spent
many long hours in reprinting pictures
lost in the fire. All students should be
appreciative of our publishing company,
Semco Color Press, and to its representa-
tives, Mr. and Mrs. Roy H. Noel. In
time of our great emergency, their gen-
erous aid and speedy handling of late copy
did much to make the 1957 NEVAMO a

PROPOSED NEW SCHOOL--Preliminary plans call for gymnasium, auditorium, laboratories. special classrooms,
offices, shops, and a cafeteria. Construction is scheduled to begin in early summer.

ancial gifts to the school. Among the grow-
ing list of donors are the following groups

Webb City Public Schools 25.00

fLibrary gift in memory of
Everyone is deeply appreciative of the spirit
of helpfulness which prompted these gifts.
With this same spirit, many organiza-
tions joined enthusiastically into the cam-
paign to "Get Out the Vote." The School
Board engaged the services of Marshall and
Brown, Kansas City architects and engin-
eers . Dr. George Englehart, director of
school building service for Missouri, con-
ferred with the local board in regard to the
construction and the site for the new build-
ing. School Board members presented the
critical problem facing the community to
many different organizations.
Plans were completed for an election
which called for the approval of 5650, 000 in
bonds to be combined with insurance re-
ceipts of 5815, 000. When February 19, the
day for the election, arrived, interest
throughout the district was high. The Junior
Senior High School students joined with civic
organizations a.nd formed a parade around
the square. In front of the Stone Memorial
students held the first assembly following
the destruction of the school.
Patrons of the Nevada R-5 District went
to the polls in record numbers. THE BOND
ISSUE PROPOSAL CARRIED BY A MARGIN
OF 7 TO l WITH 2, 904 AFFIRMATIVE
VOTES AND 580 NEGATIVE VOTES.
Mr. Flory, President of the School
Board, expressed appreciation for the ex-
cellent response in these words:
"Voting yes for our school issues, we
not only said we want to give our children
and the future generations the finest i.n edu-
cation in preparing them for their life's
work, we also expressed our faith in the
future of Nevada--the finest community in
The year of 1956-57 has been an event-
ful one for the students and the faculty
members of Nevada junior-Senior High
School. Everyone is looking forward to
the fall of 1958 when students will begin
their school year in the new Nevada Junior-
Senior High School.
