Speeches were given by both students and faculty members during the week at activity period. One of the most interesting was a poem composed by a Guestonian, Virginia Midkiff. -c A visitor in town one day, Stopped at the high school for a stay. He was amaze-d at this, of all places, To see so many eager faces. "What is going on around here?" He asked an Athenian passing near. "Oh, haven't you heard?" the student replied, And then he looked at the guest and sighed. "The Cardinal Campaign is on again, And I'm afraid the Guestonians are going to win. We Athenians really have been trying, But the Guestonians are simply flying." s The Athenians are sponsored by Mr. Blacker, . And he says he doesn't have a slacker. But he'll have to show us what they can do, Before this great campaign is through. The Guestonians are led by Mr. Phelps, And their sales he really helps. He says they'1l win by cooperation, And victory is their destination. To have a yearbook is our aim, And all the alumni want the same. From our duty we must not shirk, And both societies will have to work. So come on, Guestonians, Get out and fight! We'll put the Athenians In a sorry plight. The Guestonians were out to win this year, and the Athenians were working to continue their winning way. The score was very close all during the Campaign. On the last day of the campaign everyone was listening with eager ears to learn who had won. And then the defeated voice of the editor, an Athenian, came over the loud-speaker. The final score was 147 to 137-The Guestonians were victorious at last! We congratulate you, Guestonians, and Mr. Phelps.

The apparent success was proven by the great enthusiasm and support enjoyed by the team throughout the year. In the first game of the season the Cardinals won a thrilling contest over Equality by a score of 40-39. This was not the only sensational game of the year, there were many other close and exciting games. The Cardinals pulled a surprising upset on Dec. 10, when they defeated the McLeansboro Foxes. It was the first time in many years the Cardinals had defeated them. The Cardinals were fortunate this year to have four returning lettermen: Bernard Hughes, Wallace Campbell, Paul Campbell and James Coffman. The team was further strengthened by the addi- tion of three players from Omaha. They were Bill Huffstuttler, Lowell Lamb and Carl Dixon. Pacing the Cardinals' scoring was Bernard Hughes who clipped the net for 243 points. This was the highest individual scoring in many years. Bill I-Iuffstuttler ranked second in the scoring colunfn with 145 points, In the last game of the regular season the Cardinals played Grayville. The Cardinals were determined to defeat them and finish the season in a winning fashion. This they did in walloping Grayville by a score of 60-33. This conclusion made the season a further success, especially for the Seniors who were making their final appearance for the cardinal and white.

A The Cross Country team of the 1948-49 season performed very well considering the fact that Norris City had not been a competing team since 1945. This year's squad consisted of the following members: Wilbur Lack, Paul Carroll, Bernard Hughes, James Aldredge and Bruce Johnson. The Cross Country team participated in five meets this year. In the first meet at Ridgway, Norris City found itself on the short end of a very close score. However, in the second meet with Ridgway on the local track the Cardinals were victorious. In the next two meets with Christopher, the Cardinals were defeated twice. However, the District meet also held at Christopher, found Norris City finishing third in a Classic with six teams repre- sented. This climax led observers to view the season with favor. The Cardinals should be even greater competitors next year, since all of the members of this year's squad will return. SOFTBALL '00 Our 1948 Softball activities proved the least successful of the sporting activities for the year. However, many hard-fought con- tests were evident throughout the season. In the first game of the season the Cardinals emerged victorious over Dahlgren on the local diamond. Behind the pitching of Paul Campbell, the Cardinals won by a score of 4-3. The second game of the season was played at Crossville where the Cardinals won by a score of 17-3. The Tigers were completely handcuffed by the brilliant pitching of Bruce Johnson. During the remainder of the season the local nine were touched hard in luck by losing four out of the remaining five games. A tied 3-3 game was played at Dahlgren during the latter part of the season.

At that time there were thirty energetic members, who practiced diligently until a good band was developed. The first uniform of the band was a red cape and red "bell boy" cap. Our first real uniforms were purchased in 1936, when the present style was adopted. This style has been replaced from time to time as the material demands. The 1948-49 band has played at the Mt. Vernon Labor Day celebration, Enfield Mule Day, Carmi Corn Day, Norris City Dairy Day and Shawneetown Corn Day. They have played concerts at New Haven, Norris City and Omaha. The group journeyed to Flora for the district band contest and to Charleston for the State Finals. Other band activities included playing between halves at basket- ball games and presentation of the annual Spring Concert. Numbers on the concert program were used in the State Contest and soloists were Philip Veatch, trombonist, and Charles Wallace, playing the sousaphone. The glockenspiel was added to the band instruments this year and has been very capably played by Dortohy Moore. An annual affair is the Band Banquet, held in the gymnasium. The public is invited to the pot luck supper and entertainment is provided by band numbers and vocal selections.
