1 I THE 1 3 PUBLISHED B¥ ¥HE §¥UDEnT BOD¥ Of $¥ l¥E 10Ril %E COEEEGE9 l l¥CHI¥OCHE§9 EO¥l$l ll l EO¥l§l ll l ■ N CEC€eNm€N I HE students of Louisiana State Normal College dedicate this, the Twenty-Eighth Volunne of THE POTPOURRI, to " Our Dean, " who, through his experiences as a rural school teacher, a country school principal, a member of the State Depart- ment of Education, and his affiliations with numer- ous educational projects in the state, understands the problems of the college youth and lends dignity and prestige to his position as the leader in cultural endeavors at his Alma Mater. I sk S we watch our happy and eventful years at Louisiana State Nornnal College pass rapidly by, we can reconcile ourselves to the thought of separation only with the assur- ance that we are storing up mennories and associations never to be forgotten. It is the purpose of this book to give to these treasures of the nnind, tangible expressions — to give a sympathetic interpretation of Normal ' s back- ground and its growing traditions, and embodiment of the ideals and aspirations of its students through many genera- tions, and a graphic chronicle of the work and play and glorious comradeship that give these fleeting years their lasting significance. CCNTENTS ALMA MATER ACTIVITIES ATHLETICS THE FEATURES THE GREEKS ORGANIZATIONS I SCIENCE BUILDING THE N€CMAL CAMPUS [ 11 ] [ 14] ADMINISTRATION BUILDING ADHINISTI ATICN [ 15 ] ACCOMPLISHMENTS With the graduation of the class of 1939, Albert A. Fredericks will com- plete his fifth year as President of the Louisiana State Normal College . . . It seems fitting that we review the outstanding events of his term of office . . , First of all, the enrollment in residence, correspondence, and extension class students has increased 45 per cent under the administration of Presi- dent Fredericks . . . The varied activities of President Fredericks in the educational and social world and his appointment to state-wide committees have popularized the name of NORMAL among influential circles . . . New extra-curricular activities have taken root in the past five years, making the students ' leisure hours interesting ... A vast intramural league in all sports and entertainment has been inaugurated to stimulate competition between the various groups . . . Alumni clubs have been established in numerous cities. The Alumni Columns reaches the homes of graduates all over the South . . . Among the improvements on the State Normal College campus during the past five years are the Richard W. Leche library, a new power and light plant, including a parkway lighting system, three N. Y. A. dormitories, that accommodate over 200 students, reno- vations of all the old buildings on the campus, a new football ' ' bowl, " embracing a football field and a quarter-mile cinder track and an extensive roadway and landscaping project . . . Under con- struction as this edition of The Potpourri goes to press are a fine arts building and auditorium, two dormitories for women, a social room, a men ' s dormitory, a stadium, a student center and natatorium, and additions to the infirmary and to the power plant . . . All of these accomplishments have been brought about largely through the keen foresight and untiring energy of our president, a man who has endeared himself to the hearts of students, faculty and administrative staff members, and graduates of the college. THE Murphy P. Rogers Dean of tlie College The youngest of the deans in age and in point of service, Dr. Murphy P. Rogers has an outstanding record. He seems to be plan- ning great things for the College. H. Lee Prather Dran of Students Concerned with keeping the students appeased, Dean Prather finds it necessary to draw on all his reserves of friendliness and fellow- ship, (jualities that have made him the popular man that he is. [ 18] DEANS Miss Dean E. Varxado Dean of If omen The Dean of Women, Miss Dean E. Var- nado, acts in the capacity of a general ad- viser to the women students of Normal. A closer relationship is insured to each woman which gives increased incentive for higher scholarship. Mrs. Ethel L. Hereford Dean of Off-Campus Women and Social Director Mrs. Ethel L. Hereford, Dean of Off-Campus Women and Social Director serves the town girls in the same way that Miss V ' arnado serves the club girls. As Social Director, she exercises supervision of all social events. [ 19] The Women of the Faculty R. L. Ropp, Publicity, Debate and Professor of English.

Sitting in Picture Jack Burgess • President of ihe College Clarice Timmermann . • Dean of Women Standing Edmond Saucier Dean of Students Julius Bradley Dean of the College [85 ] JACK BURGESS EMMETT COPE CLARICE TIMMERMANN STUDENT The Student Body Association of the Louisiana State Normal College was or- ganized in 1927 with the election of a presi- dent, a vice-president, a secretary-treasurer and ten members of the Student Council. To make the Council a representative part of the student body, members were selected from the outstanding organizations of the campus. The student body officers became the officers of the Student Council; the Vice- President of the Student Body acting as President of the Council, the Student Body President as Vice-President of the Council, and the Secretary-Treasurer of the Student Body as secretary of the Council. Other members were elected as representatives of the Newman Club, Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., the two publications, Senior Class, Junior Class, Sophomore Class, and three were elected from the student body at large. [86] THE STUDENT COUNCIL BODY ASSOCIATION Officers Emmett Cope President Jack Burgess Vice-President Clarice Tim.mermann Secretary The Student Council is the executive body of the Louisiana State Normal College and is composed entirely of students. Its duty is to supervise the activities of the different organizations and to bring these organizations into closer co- operation with one another. The membership of the Student Council is made up of the following: the three student body officers, Jack Burgess, President; Emmett Cope, Vice-President, and Clarice Timmermann, secretary; the president of the Sophomore, Junior, and Senior classes, Roland Migues, John Renwick, and Julius Bradley, respectively; the editors of the Potpourri and Current Sauce, Steve Harmon and Norman Dowty, respectively; the president of the three religious organizations, Walter Ledet, Newman Club; Hugh Carter, Y. M. C. A., and Helen Byers, representative from the Y. W. C. A., and three representatives from the student body at large, Melvin Bradley, John D. Bell, and John Elkins.

Society Editor Yvonne Jones Class Editor STEVE H. HARMON Editor A Word From the 1939 Staff Every college annual proposes to review and crystalize the school year that its memory may be perpetuated. The Potpourri is no exception, but we believe this volume goes farther in trying to present Normal at its finest; to show her high-ranking position among institutions in the South. If we accomplish our purpose of bringing Normal College more clearly into the public eye, we shall feel that our work is a success. [88] O U R R I BUSINESS STAFF Gordon A. Wiggins .

Such innovations as were instituted were concerned with technique and poUcy. From the technical viewpoint the paper was changed in makeup so as to conform with the latest concepts of functional journalism. The Current Sauce was departmentalized to make for more effective coverage and presentation. Chief of the politic changes was the enlargement of the college paper ' s scope so as to present a representative picture of not only college activities but also college thought here and elsewhere. [90} Current Sauce Staff i DISCIPLINE COMMITTEE Burgess COLVIN Cope Crowder Fox Prather TiMMERMANN The Discipline Committee acts as a judiciary in all cases concerning infractions of major rules in which the punish- ment of suspension or expulsion may be involved. These cases may be either appealed from the Women ' s or Men ' s Councils or presented by the Dean of Students. The com- mittee is composd of six faculty members and six student members. [92] Black.

The Women ' s Council is composed of the president and vice- president from each dormitory and from the olf-campus students. The Men ' s Council is made up by the president and vice- president from each dormitory and from the off-campus students. The councils are both executive and judiciary in function, their purposes being to encourage the conformance to rules and to act upon cases of violation.

Playing for the Little-Four Cham- pionship in their final appearance of the season, the Purple and White clad players had a pass to back-fire and lost to the Southwestern Bulldogs 7-0. Opening against the powerful Centenary Gentlemen of Shreveport, the Demons yielded two touchdowns and a safety and lost 14-0, Even with Weenie Bynum, sec- ond-string All-S. I. A. A. in perfect stride, Sophomore Parker Wiggins, pointing to his future brilliant play, was the stand-out on the field. The East Texas Teachers were next on the schedule, and led by Tully, Little All- American back, chalked up a 19-6 victory. Steve Harmon ' s 68-yard touchdown jaunt, the longest of the season both for and against the Demons, was the highlight of the game. A third consecutive loss was handed the Ncrmalites by the Sam Houston Bear Kats.

Guard ROY GENTRY Tackle HAMPDEN " SHUG " MURRELL Halfback Still without a tally in the win column, the Demons met the Southeastern Lions here on the new athletic field and com- pletely outplayed the visitors to register a 6-0 victory. Murrell ' s pass to Black that was good for 55 yards in the last minute of play gave the local team its margin of supremacy. Fired over their lone win, in spite of the five regulars that were injured, the local squad, the following week, invaded the lair of the Louisiana College Wildcats and, in a thrill-packed game, emerged on the little end of a 17-14 score. A pass from Barber to Ulmer gave the Central Louisi- ana team first blood but it was quickly tied by a pass from Murrell to Perkins. The Demons then forged into the lead with a pass from Murrell to Pernici. This lead was dissipated in the third quarter as an- other connection was made by the Wildcat passing combination of Barber and Ulmer. In the last few minutes of the fourth quarter, the Wildcats took the ball on the Demons ' thirty-yard line, from where Bar- ber, on third down, kicked a perfect field goal. Undaunted still, the Purple and White team met the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at ermisslon with Tobe. FRANK EASON Guard STEVE HARMON Halfback the stadium on the State Fair Grounds in Shreveport. Trailing six points for fifty- five minutes, the local team, with Murrell passing, worked the ball down to the nine- yard line, from where three passes were thrown into the end zone before Migues caught the fourth for a touchdown. Ledet then kicked the extra point that gave the local squad its second victory. Once more on their home field, the Nor- malites turned on a crushing attack that swamped the Mississippi Delta Statesmen 42-0. Loomis, Wiggins, Scurria, Pernici, Tyler and Jackson all scored touchdowns; and Saucier converted three times, Ledet twice and Renwick once to complete the total points. For the third consecutive time the De- mons remained on top, as they defeated the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks in Nacogdoches the following week, 6-0. Al- though penalized 125 yards, a pass from Wiggins to Perkins again paid dividends and the local squad had four wins to show.

Then, with the Little-Four Champion- ship at stake, the Demons invaded LaFay- ette Thanksgiving Day and completely outplayed the Southwestern Bulldogs, only to lose 7-0.

FRESHMAN FO Coach Guy Nesom ' s 1938 Freshman Football Team ended the season with a perfect record, insofar as games won and lost is concerned, re- maining undefeated in the four contests. Only a tie with the Louisiana Tech Bullpups mars, slightly, the schedule. In the first game of the season the Imps met the strong Mansfield High School squad and with Boucher doing all the scoring, emerged the winner by a 13-0 margin. Against the DeRidder High Dragons, the De- mon underlings, scoring at will, won 39-0. Gus Boucher again set the pace, accounting for 20 of the points. Then doped the underdogs against the Tech Bullpups, who were rated the best first-year squad TBALL RESUME in the history of that school, a fact substantiated by a 12-6 win over the Centenary freshmen, Coach Nesom ' s charges completely outplayed their opponents but had to be content with a 7-7 tie. Boucher circled end for twelve yards and a touch- down and Ted Wright of Guin, Alabama, con- verted for the extra point. Still in the role of the underdogs, the Imps, in a game played on the new Athletic Field, Ar- mistice Day, met and defeated the Southwestern Bullpups by a 20-7 score. The South Louisianians, by dent of a 20-6 victory over the Loyola Uni- versity Frosh were rated one of the finest freshman elevens in the South. Boucher tallied three times for the Imps. The fine defensive play of Minter, Blalock, Harrison, Captain Bramlett and Priest completely throttled the Pup ' offense.

Opening in the strong Southwestern Relays, the NormaHtes in competition with Rice, L. S. U., Stephen F. Austin, Tulane, and Southwestern, gained third place. Parker ' s 196 foot, 5 inch heave of the javelin was the highlight of the meet and the only first place earned by any Demon. In a triangular meet with L. S. U. and Southwestern, the Purple and White clad squad placed second to the " Ole War Skule, " Parker again winning the javelin throw. The Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks, the fiirst opponents met on the home track, were defeated 65 to 52 by the Demon spikemen, who piled up eight first and seven second places. Ledet was high point man with firsts in the shot put and the discus. Still before a local audience, Coach Turpin ' s charges next defeated the South- western Bulldogs 66 to 51, compiling nine first and seven second places.

SIGMA TAU GAMMA Nu Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma was established at the Louisiana State Normal College January 29, 1929. Twenty-six men were made charter members of the chapter at that time. Sigma Tau Gamma is composed of chapters in teacher ' s colleges and normal schools of standard collegiate rank and is distinguished by being the oldest fraternity of its kind in the United States. Nu Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma is the only national educational fraternity on the campus. Its purpose is to establish a more intimate relationship and brotherhood among its members and to serve in every possible way as an uplifting factor in their lives. Like Sigma Delta Tau, the local organization from which it emerged, Nu Chapter ' s standards demand only the best of its members. Men must be in the upper levels morally and must be average or above mentally before they are accepted for membership.

The protection of Him is ever with the club because of the Christian work of its faith- ful patron, Cardinal Newman. The members of the club emu- late the work of Newman in practicing acts of charity and kindness to unfortunates and in joining the world crusade against atheistic doctrines pervading the inner life of colleges and uni- versities. Ever active, ever generous, ever alert, ever vigilant as its com- panion group in religious activ- ity, the Newman Club plays no mall part in the affairs of the Louisiana State Normal College.
