A CARDINAL STAFF PRODUCTION
Norris City Loyalty
Here's to the Cardinal and the White
Here's to our honor and our mightg
Here's to our love of honesty,
And may our courage always be.
Here's to our alma mater brave,
And may her colors always wave
To name a victory for Norris City,
And for the Cardinal and the White
The Cardinal Staff has assembled the material con-
tained in these pages with the ide-a of perpetuating the
activities of N. C. T. H. S. during the year 1944-45, so that
time will not erase the memories of our pleasant associa-
tions together during the past four ye-ars. If we thus help
to keep alive the spirit of our alma mater, we shall feel
that our efforts have not been in vain.

To Mrs. Ruby C. Lockwood, for her many years of
unselfish service to this institution, and for her four
years as adviser of the Norris City Township High School
annual, we, the Cardinal Staff, gratefully dedicate this

BOARD OF EDUCATION
The Board of Education has labored long and unceasingly, with-
out regard for their own personal pleasures, sacrificing their time and
efforts in behalf of our high school. Through their endeavors, N. C. T.
H. S. has become a modern, up-to-date institution.
Every student of this high school should feel greatly indebted to
each and every one of' these men, who are so intensely interested in
widening the scope of education. '

ADMINISTRATION ADJUSTS SCHOOL FOR TI-IE FUTURE
To Principal H. J. Phelps has come, again this year, the task of
adjusting Norris City Township High School to the many changes
brought about 'by the war. With changes in the faculty, and with stu-
dents leaving to join the armed forces, the job has not 'been an easy
During these times of economic and social dislocation, instruc-
tional programs must 'be maintained. In' spite of difficulties which
seemed insurmountable, Mr. Phelps has entirely maintained the effi-
ciency of our school. He has been assisted in his efforts by a 'capable
Back of Mr. Phelps stands the Board of Education, which is re-
sponsible for the excellent school system which we now lhave. Mr. I. E.
Turner, a mortician, is president of the Board of Educationg Mr. Elmo
Hill, a clerk, is secretaryg members are Mr. Fred Carroll, a restaurant
owner, Mr. L. H. Bayley, a farmerg and Mr. Dan Morehead, a miller.
These men represent a cross-section of the citizens of the community
around Norris City. They have given freely of their time and efforts
to maintain an efficient school. In war or in peace, we all owe a great
debt to our Board of Education and to our principal.
Great steps have been taken this year toward the perfection of
the guidance program which was installe-d in this school last year. At
the beginning of the school year, each student was individually regis-
tered by his or her class sponsor for -courses which were especially
suited to the student's aptitudes and a'bilities. A complete record of
ea-ch student is kept in the office. This record includes the student's
family history, hobbies and special interests, attendance record, and a
complete record of all grades made by the student. Norris 'City Town-
slhip High School has one of the best guidance programs in southern
N. C. T. H. S. also has an excellent health program, which is the
result of weeks of work by Mr. Phelps and his assistants. Every year,
each student is given a complete physical examination, a record of
which is kept on his or her individual medical 'card in the office. The
record also includes a medical history of the student an-d of the stu-
dent's family. These records are invaluable to our physical education
department in determining the abilities of each student.
Norris City Township High School is accredited 'by the State Super-
intendent of Public Instruction and by the University of Illinois, and
is a member of the North Central Association of Secondary Schools and

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
Expecting lots of "razzing" from the upperclassmen, we, the Class of 1945, en-
tered the corridors of Norris City High School in September, 1941. We certainly
weren't disappointed in our expectation, because we received plenty of teasing. After
a while, however, we began to become accustomed to our new home, and we soon
became a vital part of N. C. T. H. S. We were represented in almost every school
organization, and we took great pride in -our freshman basketball team. Our officers
during our freshman year were: Glen Harris, President: Betty Cu-mmings, Vice-
President: and Lucille Chisum, Secretary-Treasurer. 'Our representatives to the Stu-
dent Council were Robylee Hill, Stanley Johnson, and Donald Aud.
When we came back to begin our sophomore year, we had outgrown -the "timid
freshman" stage, and we began to understand what being a. student of N. C. T. H. S.
really meant. We seemed like veterans to the incoming freshmen. On account of the
war, there were several changes -made in our sponsors during this year. We had five
different sponsors in the course of the school year. We chose as our officers Stanley
Johnson, President: Dalton Aud, Vice-President, and Bernice Healy, 'Seoretary-Treas-
urer. Our class was represented on the Student Council by Donald Aud, Lucille
Chisum, and Ace Parker.
We started on our third year in Norris City High minus several members, who
had been inducted into the armed forces during the summer. We achieved the name
of "jolly juniors" for our gaiety and pep. We demonstrated -our dramatic ability this
year by presenting two one-act plays. The purpose of presenting these plays was
to raise money for -our Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom, which, incidentally, was a
huge success. From our members we selected the following officers: Dalton Aud.
P-resident: Glen Harris, Vice-President, Donald Aud, -Secretary-Treasurer. Carl
Doerner, Bernice Healy, and Imogene Patton were chosen to represent -our class on
the Student Council.
We entered N. C. T. H. S. this year to write the final words in this chapter of
our lives. Early in the school year, we elected our officers-Carl Doerner, Presidentg
Stanley Johnson, Vice-President, Kathleen Keasl-er, Secretary-Treasurer. Our Stu-
dent Council representatives are Imogene Patton, Charles Millspaugh, and Virginia
Holland. When Charles left in February to join the Navy, Dalton Aud was chosen
to take his place. These four years in Norris City High School have been a never-to-
be-forgotten part of our lives. When we say "Good-bye" to our alma mater, we shall
take with us pleasant memories of all the hard work, exams, new friendships, sports,
clubs, parties, and all the wonderful things which make up high school life. There
are 'many things to remember, and perhaps a few things to forget, 'but we shall always
look upon the past four years as the happiest years of -our lives. Wherever We go
and whatever we do, we shall always hold a special place in our hearts for "dear old
N. C. T. H. S."
We, the Senior Class of 1945 of the Norris City Township High School, in the
County of White in the State of Illinois, being of sound m.ind7fL?l do hereby make

Norris City, Illinois,
May 9, 1955.
I was so glad to hear from you. It's been so long since I've heard from any of
our class. I'm so glad you like your work in the Old Folks' Home at Danville, and I
think it's so nice that you and Jack could both get a job tllere. Y-ou surely are for-
tunate in finding someone to stay with your children while you work. Help is so
hard to get now. Howard has been trying for so long to get someone to help us on
the farm, but it just seems impossible. Right now he's milking, and Junior is playing
with the little neighbor boy. It isn't often I have a moment to myself. The life of
a farmer's wife is surely tiresome. You asked me to tell you what all' the people in
our class are doing now. Well, I'll do my best.
Plumadell Bell is now a private detective. 'She recently was hired by Gloria
Glamarr to catch 'a thief who stole her diamond bracelet. Gloria Glamarr, you know,
is none other than Beulah McKenzie. Beulah changed her name when she got into
movies. In her latest picture, she plays opposite Glen Harris. The name of the picture
is "Glen Harris's Bl-onde Trouble." Glen is to the young girls of today what Van
Johnson was back in 1945. One of his pictures is playing a return engagement at the
Gossett Theatre in Gossett. This theatre is owned and managed by Virginia Cox.
She has really made a fortune in the theatre business. She owns a twenty-eight-room
mansion in Gossett. Another member of our class who has become famous is Marie
Edwards. I know you've heard of her success. She is now the world's champion
figure skater. She won the title from Sonja Henie in the Olympics held in Moscow
Speaking of famous people, Floyd Williams and his Bear Creek Bear-Cats are
now playing at the Stork Club in New York. Floyd really "gives out" on those drums.
Wilma Gidcumb is the featured vocalist with Floyd's orchestra. She's really giving
Dinah Shore some stiff competition.
Betty Bruce is now in her sixth year of teaching home economics in the Sacra-
mento High School. Carl Doerner still lives here in Norris City. Yes, he's married
to that gi-rl who was a junior when he was a senior. Heand his wife have assumed

funjor Class Hsfory
When we began our high school career in 1942, our class, Wfith
seventy-three members, was one of the largest in the history of the
school. Naturally, we were subjected to the customary "razzing" which
is all a part of being a freshman. We were good sports, fhowever, and
soon we took our places as the future leaders of N. C. T. H. S. This
year we chose as our officers the following people: Audrey Stephens,
Presidentg Paul Bishop, Vice-Presidentg and Lenora Haynes, Secre-
tary-Treasurer. Pauline Poole, Kenneth Doerner, and Billy Summers
were our representatives on the Student Council.
In September, 1943, when we started our sophomore year in high
school, our membership had decreased to sixty-one. Though we had
lost some of our members, we still retained the honor of being the
largest class in school. We chose to guide us through our "silly sopho-
more" year Evelyth McArthy as President, Kathryn Boyd as Vice-
President, and Betty Gwaltney as Secretary-Treasurer. We chose for
representatives to the Student Council Christine Turpin, Pauline Poole,
and Frank Bayley.
Well, here we are, living up to the name of "jolly juniors." And,
though we don't want you to think we're boasting, we're still the largest
class in school! Our officers this year are Kenneth Doerner, Presidentg
Mary Beth Renshaw, Vice-Presidentg and Kathryn Boyd, Secretary-
Treasurer. We are well represented on the Student Council by Frank
Bayley, Evelyth McArthy, and Charles Greer. We have enjoyed being
a part of N. C. T. H. S., and we are looking forward to taking our places
as "sophisticated seniors."

Sophomore Class History
We were a very small class when we registered at N. C. T. H. S.
just two years ago. We were very timid, as all fresh-men are, but soon
we overcame our fear of the upper-classmen and assumed our place in
the various activities of the school. Our officers for this year were:
John Randall Johnson, Presidentg Ruby Patton, Vice-President, and
Doris Mae Gerdes, Secretary-Treasurer. Our Student Council repre-
sentatives were Ben Boyd, Sybil Ford, and Fred Carroll, Jr.
This year We are indeed a small class with only twenty-one mem-
bers. However, we compensate in quality for our lack of quantity. We
have gotten quite a thrill from playing jokes on this year's freshman
class. Our leaders during our sophomore year are: Ben Boyd, Presi-
dent, Delores Dale, Vice-President, and Jerry Harper, Secretary-
Treasurer. Fred Carroll, Jr., Alice Blazier, and John Randall Johnson
represent our class on the Student Council.

Freshman Class History
We freshmen started our journey through high school on August
28, 1944. It is -ap characteristic of freshmen to 'be "green," and d-on't
think we weren't "green" at first. However, we took all the teasing
of the upperclassmen good-naturedly, and soon we be-came familiar
with our new surroundings. Early in the year, we chose our leaders for
the year. We selected Raymond English as President, Dale Phelps as
Vice-President, and Joan Edwards as Secretary-Treasurer. Pat Mc-
Quay, Billy York, and Tommy Cavender were chosen to represent our
class on the Student Coun-cil. We were assisted in our journey by oufr
sponsors, Mr. Blacker and Miss Crutchfield. We're all looking forward
to next year, when we hope to be able to pass on some of those practical
jokes which were played on us this year.
So it's "So long" till then.

J UNIOR-SENIOR PROM
The senior class, faculty, board menrlbers, and their wives Were
guests of the junior class at the annual J unior-Senior Prom, which was
held in the gymnasium on April 20, 1945, at 8:00 p. m. '
For this event, the gymnasium was attractively decorated to repre-
sent the garden of a Mexican hacienda. A canopy of crepe paper
covered the garden, and the lights were dimmed to give the effect of
moonlight. Mexican trees and flowers line-d the garden on either side.
As each guest entered the garden, he received a dance program book,
which was in the shape of a Mexican senor's som'brero. On the stage,
which represented the balcony of the hacienda, was Rowland Fenton's
orchestra, which furnished music for dancing. Appropriate refresh-
ments consisting of punch and sandwiches were served during the eve-
Everyone present wishes to express 'his gratitude to the juniors for
a delightful evening.

. BASKETBALL 1944-45
CARL DOERNER, '45, was our cen-
ter and was a good defensive man as
well as an excellent offensive man. He
worked Well with the team as a whole.
and we shall miss him next year.
STANLEY JOHNSON, '45, was a boy
who was always in there fighting, and
who oould always be counted upon to
make his share of the points. He was a
good team man, a good faker, and a
good defensive man. VVe shall remem-
ber him for his work during the last
few minutes of the Carmi game.
CHARLES MILLSPAUGH, '45, left
for the Navy after our last scheduled
game. He was greatly missed when we
played in the Regional Tournament. He
was an excellent guard, and had a good
eye for the basket.
DALTON AUD, '45, had the ability
to hold that ball, and was always there
when he was needed. He was both a
good offensive and defensive man. He
was an asset to the team, and will be
missed next year.
JIM ABERCROMBIE, '45, came to
us from Omaha. Jim did not play as
much as some, but when he did, he was
a dependable player.
CHARLES GREER, '46, was small
but mighty. He was always full -of pep
and ready to go. He was an excellent
guard, and a good shot. We hope to
see more of his playing next year.
JOHNNY ANDERSON, '46, has
proved to be very helpful to our squad.
Johnny has furnished the missing link
which all teams must have. He is also
a player -of whom great things are ex-
pected next year.
KENNETH DOFERNER, '46, was an
excellent offensive man. He was a. good
rebounder and ball handler. Kenny had
lots of fight in him, and We hope to see
more of it next season.
JOHN RANDALL JOHNSON, '47,
was a good team man who always had
a cool head when the going was tough.
He, like Fred, did not play in all the
FRED CARROLL, IR., '47, is a sopho-
more this year. He did not play in all
the games, but he has proved his abil-
ity as a basketball player.
COACH INIMAN, a native of Ken-
tucky, joined the N. C. T. H. S. faculty
in November. Coach Inman, who is
liked by all members of the squad, has
brought us through the season with
some very happy victories. He has
great plans for next year, and we are
all confident that he will lead the Car-
dinals to even greater victories than he
did this year.
DALE PHELPS is a freshman who
has given evidence of his loyalty to our
school by working as athletic manager.
Dale has done a good job in a position
of responsibility, and the squad is grate-
ful to him for his efficient work.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SEASON
The first game of the season was played at McLeansboro. Though we were
ahead at the half, we lost the game by a score of 45 to 33.
We did better in the next game with Crossville on the home floor. We won by
three points. '
After the Crossville game we were in the losing column for four straight games
-New Harmony, Grayville, Albion, and Ridgway.
But did we ever come out of our slump! Yes, we defeated our old rival, Carmi,
on the home floor. This was the first time we had defeated Carmi in four years, and
we were quite elated over our victory.
We lost our next game to the Cave-in-Rock "giants," The score was tied at the
half, and it looked for a while as if we might even win, but they overcame our lead
during the second half, and at the end of the game, they had doubled the score on us.
The game with Central High School, in Evansville, Indiana, was a. close game all
the way. They were one point ahead of us both at the half and at the end of the game.
When Equality played here, we were five points behind at the half, but we over-
came their lead, and won with seven points to spare.
During the Christmas vacation, we were defeated by Richland City, Indiana, on
We defeated Crossville on our floor, but we couldn't do it again on their floor.
Score-35 to 28.
The game at Enfield was one of the most exciting of th-e season. When the final
whistle blew, we had defeated them by one point.
We easily defeated Eldorado's team at home. Let's hope it will be that easy when
we play them on their floor.
After winning two games straight, we started on another losing streak. We
again lost four games in a. row to Cave-in-Rock, Equality, McLeansboro, and Albion.

Three very efficilentcheer leaders, Lucille Chisum, Betty Hancock, and Pauline
Poole were chosen by the student body to direct the cheering of the school. Under
the direction of Miss Jones, they made the assembly pep meetings and the cheering
at ball games ring and reverberate with peppy yells and songs. These girls, in their
cardinal and white uniforms, were the liveliest part of the ball games as they helped
to spur the Cardinals on to victory. Norma Faunce, Glennys Greathouse, Robylee
Hill, Virginia Holland, and Bernice Healy became cheer leaders later in the season.
These eigh-t peppy girls worked out several clever routines, and were the center of
attraction wherever our team played. 1

Track training in any high school is a very beneficial as well as an interesting
project. Track training not only gives the young, ambitious fellow a chance to de-
velop physically, but also creates a sense of good sportsmanship, that, if pnoperly
developed, will remain with him throughout life.
N. C. T. H. S. has a good -track team this year. The boys give unceasing loyal
support not only to their school, but also to their coach, Mr. Inman.
These boys enjoy the keen competition under which they must labor to be a.
winner. Here is another fine trait imbedded in the hearts of the boys: "Never give up!"
The boys who place in various meets held during the year are rewarded with
letters and gold track shoes.

In spite of the small membership in the band
this year, it has kept up its reputation -of giving
the best in music to the many people who enjoy its
playing. This year's band is composed mainly of
students who are preparing for work in the band
next year. The band furnished music for all our
home basketball games, and its spirited music was
as much a part of the game as the game itself.
Three mem-bers of the band-Robylee Hill, Mary

members of the Silver Seal this year. The Silver

The Hobby Club is one of the largest organizations in school. In order to become
a member of this club, a student must have a hobby which he is constantly improving.
On account of its size, this group was divided into two organizations soon after
school began. The new group is called the Woodcraft Club. Its officers are: George
McKenzie, Presidentg Joe Patton, Vice-Presidentg Harold Bishop, Secreta.ry+Trea.surer,
The principal activity of the Woodcraft Club was the making of a sewing cabinet.

ORGANIZATION OF HOME ROOMS
One of the most difficult problems which confronts Mr. Phelps at the beginning
of every school year is the effective organization of home rooms and clubs.
This is the sixth year for the home room system in our high school, and better
results have been obtained from this system every year. It has proved very suc-
cessful and coordinates perfectly with the working and -management of the school.
This system has induced individual thinking to a greater extent, and has 'been con-
ducive to student expression.
In order to keep the students from becoming tired and bored on days when there
are no club meetings, programs are presented in each home room every Tuesday morn-
ing during the activity period. Many kinds of programs are developed-short skits,
games, contests, impersonations, etc. Once during each semester, each home room
is permitted to have refreshments for its program. The entire year's programs are
planned by committees at the beginning of the school year, and they must be approved
by the Student Council before they are actually put into action by the home room.
This year the student body was divided into seven home rooms, each of which
was under the sponsorship of a faculty member. Officers were chosen by the mem-
bers of each home room. Home Room 1, sponsored by Mrs. McElhaney and Miss
Grantham, chose as their officers: Lenora Haynes, Presidentg Avis Bryant, Vice-
Presidentg Ann Fantz, Secretary-Treasurer. Home Room 3, under the sponsorship of
Mr. Blacker, elected the following officers: Bud Evans, Presidentg Kenneth Kennedy,
Vice-Presidentg and Billy York, Secretary-Treasurer. Mi-ss Jones sponsored Home
Room 4, and its members chose Jerry 'Harper as Presidentg Betty Bruce as Vice-Presi-
dent, and Roberla Davis as Secretary-Treasurer. Leon Coffman was chosen as
President of Home Room 51 Bob Knowles, Vice-P-resident: and Ruby Patton, Secre-
tary-Treasurer. Miss Crutchfield sponsored -this home room. The officers of Home
Room 6, sponsored by Miss Duck, were: Stanley Johnson, President: Charles Greer,
Vice-Presidentg and Norma Faunce, Secretary-Treasurer. Home Room 7, sponsored
by Miss Forchee, chose the following officers: Glen Harris, President: Beulah Har-
rolle, Vice-Presidentg and Bernice Healy, Secretary-Treasurer. Mr. Inman was the
sponsor of Home Room 9, whose officers were: W. D. Norris, Presidentg Lillian Oliver,
Vice-Presidentg Gloria Pyle, Secretary-Treasurer.
ORGANIZATION OF CLUBS
Early in the school year, mimeographed lists of special interests and hobbies were
distributed among the students. Each student was instructed to check the things in
which he or she was interested. When these lists were collected, Mr. Blacker, who
was in charge of the organization of clubs this year, tabulated the results, and, under
his direction, clubs were organized which were adapted to the individual interests of
practically all the students. Each student was allowed to belong to three clubs.
Each club was required to have its constitution approved by the Student Council
before it could become an active organization. Club meetings are held every other
week during the activity period. Their programs were wel1Fpla.nned, and proved to
be of great educational value to members. These clubs have become an integral part
of N..C, T. H. S., and they would be greatly missed if they were to be discontinued.

IMPROVEMENTS IN OUR
PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENTS
This year saw many improvements in the girls' lphysical educa-
tion department, under the leadership of the instructor, Miss Ida Mae
Jones, who has a major in physical education. The department has
new equipment of many types for tumbling, archery, paddle tennis,
ping-pong, badminton, deck tennis, soccer, basketball, softball, volley-
ball, croquet, horeshoes, shuffleboard, Indian club games, bean bag
games, and several dart board games. Addition-al gymnastic equip-
ment includes four climbing ropes for girls, and a springboard, as well
as the use of all other gymnastic facilities.
For the first time the girls have standardized uniforms, consisting
of scarlet shorts and white blouses. Daily showers and proper mainte-
nance of uniforms have become health habits.
The girls received two hundred forty minutes of physical educa-
tion and health instruction ea-ch week. New features of the physical
education program include instruction in marching tactics and tnack
and field. The intramural basketball program, wlhich lasted two months,
consisted of round robin tournaments. The season ended with the
senior girls in first place.
In addition to their physical education work the girls receive in-
struction in health and first aid.
Norris City is proud of its girls' physical edu-cation and health
program which compares favorably with any in Southern Illinois.
The girls' department was honored this year by Miss Jones' aip-
pointment as White County representative of women's physical educa-
tion to the Southeastern Division of the Illinois Physical Education
The boys' new equipment did not arrive until March. However,
Mr. Inman has given the boys some excellent training during these last
two months. The boys' equipment includes a punching bag, climbing
ropes, traveling rings, and parallel bars. The lboys, like the girls, re-
ceive training in health and first aid as well as in physi-cal education.
The boys also have standardized uniforms of white trunks and white
We are looking forward to even better things from these splendid
departments next year. I

What's all that commotion in the music
room every Thursday after school? Why,
that's where the school newspaper is dis-
Yes, this year N. C. T. H. S. has adver-
tised its oomings, goings, and doings through
a weekly newspaper, The Redbird. The school
has long desired a newspaper published by
the student body. This year, a completely
interschool paper Was organized and pub-
lished by the students, with the aid of the
The Redbi-rd has carried detailed accounts
of all athletic events, school programs, club
activities, and school gossip.
There have been seventeen issues of the
newspaper. The first issue was published
December 7, and since then, with the excep-
tion of a few weeks, there has been an issue
every week. The papers were mimeographed
on the schoo1's machine, and practically all
the work involved was done by students.
The paper has 'been enthusiastically re-
ceived by the stu-dent body, and i-t is hoped
by those who worked to organize the paper
that it will be a permanent institution in
N. C. T. H. S.

SPECIAL ASSEMBLY PROGRAMS
At the beginning of the school year, Mr.
Phelps scheduled three assembly programs
which were enjoyed very much by the student
body. The first program was presented on
October 31 by Donald Scott Morrison. Mr.
Morrison portrayed great musical masters
such as Bach, Chopin, and Debussy. His
make-up and costumes were authentic copies
of those used during the period of history in
which these great masters of music lived.
Mr. 'Morrison had with him a harpsichord,
which was probably the first one most of the
students had seen. He closed his program
with a popular selection.
The second program was "Rip Van Win-
kle," presented on November 16 by Mr. and
Mrs. John Parsons. Mr. and Mrs. Parsons
portrayed all five characters in their pre-
sentation of this famous story.'
On Februa.ry 9, we were entertained by
M-r. Loring Campbell, a. magician. Mr. Camp-
bell did all sorts of card tricks, made things
appear and disappear, and did all the usual
tricks of magicians.
These programs were enjoyed by everyone
who attended them. The grade school, as
well as the high school, was present at these
When the announcement was made that the Cardinal Campaign would begin,
the rivalry between the Guestonians and the Afthenians started. The campaign got
under way on January 22, and all students began to make lists of prospective sub-
At first, subscriptions came in rather slowly, and the Athenians secured the lead:
however, the Guestonians overtook them, and the lead went from side to side as bot'h
societies pushed ahead.
One highlight of the Cardinal Campaign is the daily assembly of all students in
the gym during the activity period to listen bo the pleas, entreaties, stories, past ex-
periences, dreams, and "fibs" of the faculty as well as the student body.
When the contest closed at 4:00 p. m. on January 26, Mary Ruth Coffman, the
business manager, announced that the Guestonians had won by a score of 144 to 141.
This year more Cardinals were sold than ever before.
We can't end this article without saying how well the Athenians are able to "take
it," and how well the Guestonians are able to make them "take it!"
HALLCWE'EN CARNIVAL 1
On Friday night, October 27, the G. A. A. sponsored an all-school Hallowe'en
Carnival in the gymnasium. There were booths for men only, one for women only,
a sleeping beauty, midgets, hula dancers, an archery game, a. trip around the World,
fish pond, a bearded lady, and mafny other interesting attractions. The booths ran
the full length of both sides of the gym. The decorations were very effective, and
the atmosphere of a real carnival filled the gymnasium. Our fortunes were told by
a witch, whose speech bore a strange resemblance to that of our mathematics teacher.
Upstairs in the history room was the House of Horrors. It could be reached only by
walking d-own the dark hallway alone.
Sandwiches and drinks were served in the music room. During the evening,
there were humorous short skits on the stage. This was indeed a night of thrills,
mystery, and fun.
FUTURE HOMEMAKERS, CLUB BAZAAR
The Future I-Iomemakers' Club held a bazaar on Saturday, December 9, at John-
son's Hardware Store. The boys' class made oatmeal cookies, sugar cookies, filled
cookies, and ice box cookies for the sale. The Homemaking II class made twenty-five
dozen cloverleaf, parkerhouse, and cinnamon rolls.
The Homemaking I class of twenty-six members cooperated in making a rose
and wine colored pon-pon rug, on which they sold chances. The Homemaking III
classes sold chances on a rayon and wool blanket. The blanket and rug were given
away at the drawing which was held at three o'clock that afternoon.
Each girl made one item to contribute to the sale. The articles which were sold
included embroidered dresser scarfs, vanity sets, tea towels, hot-pan holders, em-
broidered aprons, cakes, pies, and candies.
The profit which the girls made from this project was S62.92.
Page -Forty five
Again this year the members of the Future Homemakers' Club and all home eco-
nomics students were divided into two groups for the annual magazine subscription
campaign. This campaign is sponsored annually in this school by the Curtis Publish-
ing Company. The campaign lasted for two weeks, Prizes for selling the greatest
number of subscriptions were awarded to Mary Lou Haynes, Marveunene Jones, Delores
Awalt, Betty Bruce, Gloria Pyle, Marion Kennedy, and Lillian Oliver.
The commission received by the club was S19.71. With this amount, the girls
plan to purchase some new equipment for the home economics department.
G. A. A. INITIATION
During the week before Christmas vacation, the G. A. A. held their annual initia-
tion. All new members of the G. A. A. are required to be initiated before they can
become active members. The ini-tiati-on ceremonies lasted for three days. Each day
the pledges were required to do different things. Some requirements were: wear
make-up on one side of the face only, pin hair up on one side only, carry a broom,
carry a sack of potatoes over one shoulder, walk up the steps backwards saying the
alphabet, wear colors that clash, wear one high-heeled shoe and one oxford, carry an
egg in a bucket, and have the egg .signed by all instructors, and wear bright colored
garters just below the knees. The pledges as well as the active members enjoyed the
initiation very much. On the night following the last day of the initiation, a party
was held at which the pledges were officially received into the -organization, but only
after each pushed a peanut down the hall with her nose!
On Friday evening, February 23, the basketball team held a banquet in the home
economics room to celebrate the closing of the basketball season. Everyone had an
excellent time, and enjoyed the food which was prepared and served by the home eco-
nomics classes under the direction of Miss Grantham. Those present were Stanley
Johnson, Carl Doerner, Jim Abercrombie, Dalton Aud, Charles Greer, Frank Bayley,
Johnny Anderson, Johnnie Betson, Silas Alldredge, Ben Boyd, John Randall Johnson,
Kenneth Doerner, Fred Carroll, Jr., Jerry Esch, Raymond English, Dale Phelps, man-
ager, Mr. Inman, coach, and Mr. Phelps, principal. Following is the menu:
Potatoes in Half Shell Buttered Green Beans
Waldorf Salad Relishes Carrot Strips
Cloverleaf Rolls Blackberry Jam
Angel Food Cake Vanilla Sherbet
This year something new has been added in our athletic department. YVe have
had intramural basketball in previous years, but never before have we had such a
well-planned and well-sponsored program. Mr. Inman and Miss J-ones have worked
hard to make both boys' and girls' intramural sports a success this year. These intra-
mural games were played in the gym at noon. The boys played on Monday, Wednes-
day, and Friday, and the' girls played on Tuesday and Thursday. Miss Jones divided
the girls into four teams by classes. These girls held a round robin tournament during
the year. The boys were divided into eight teams. The boys' games Were refereed by
Charles Millspaugh and Carrl Doemer, and the girls' games were refereed by Miss
Jones and various girls whom she chose.
G. A. A. MOTHER-DAUGHTER BANQUET
On April 6, at 7:30 p. m., the members of the Girls' Athletic -As-
sociation entertained their mothers with a lovely banquet in the gym-
nasium. In addition to the mothers, Mrs. Phelps, Mrs. Blacker, and-
the teachers were honored guests. The gymnasium and the tables were
attractively decorated with blue and white crepe paper.
The program was made up of the following num-bers:

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SEASON
fContinued from Page 263
It seems that we always lose four games before defeating Carmi. You're right.
We did it again-and on their own floor, too. The final sc-ore was 42 to 39, and-
well, you all know the rest.
We were defeated the second time this year by the powerful Grayville team. We
held the lead until the last quarter, but the final score was 24 to 22-their favor.
We lost to a good team.
Having defeated Eldorado twice previously, we couldn't repeat our victories on
their floor. This was one of ourpoorest showings of the year.
We ended our season in a blaze of glory by defeating Enfield here 36 to 26. We
proved that we could defeat them, even though we didn't do so in the County Tourna-
In the Holiday Tournament at Eldorado, we played three games. In the first
game, we defeated Eldorado, in the second we were defeated by Wayne City, and we
lost the consolation game to McLeansboro.
In the White County Tournament at Crossville-and we still can't believe it
really happened-Enfield defeated the Cardinals 26 to 22.
We were eliminated ,in the first game of the Regional Tournament at Eldorado.
In this game, three of our first five -men fouled out early in the seoonid half. The
final score was 74 to 36 in Marion's favor.
