We jumbled all these things together for some thirty-six weeks, and out came the 1949-1950 school year. We worked, played, loafed, and romanced ... all to the tune of " Yea, Demons!

G. w. mcGimv A MESSAGE FROm THE PRCSIDEHT This annual was prepared by you and your fellow students and was designed to record the year ' s happenings at North- western State College. It is my opinion that the Editor and her able assistants have done an excellent job of recording college life as it existed en the " Hill " during this mid-century year. It is a fine thing to have a pictorial and word-record of your student days. In the years ahead you will turn the pages of this book with much pleasure and satisfaction as you recall familiar scenes and faces. Pleasant memories of happy days gone by will be a source of endless satisfaction. A friend is among our most valuable possessions. You have made many friends during the year and some of these friend- ships will become stronger with the passing years. In other cases, time will fade or weaken these friendship ties, but your POTPOURRI will tend to revive and enliven them as often as you turn its pages. The book will be a source of pleasure to you; and may I say — yes, express the hope — that your children and grandchildren perhaps, turning the pages of this book, will be influenced to cast their lot with North- western State College. To be associated with Northwestern State College is to learn to love the " Hill. " In fact, there is something fascinating about the columns and old Caldwell Hall that grips the imagination. Perhaps this intangible something has been a potent factor in making Northwestern State College. Graduates and ex-students know that we have a great college and we are proud of it. Those who have passed through its halls of learning have done their bit. Its future rests on your shoulders, in a large measure. We fondly hope that you will not only hold fast the high standards and splendid record already achieved, but that you will aspire to make Northwestern State College even greater. In closing may I say that my year as Acting President has been filled with strenuous work and grave responsibilities; nevertheless, iv has been a pleasant year. The friendly young men and young women students; the cooperative faculty; have helped to make my burden lighter. May we pool our efforts and work as a united band of scholars, to carry forth the torch of learning from the " Hill. " May we dare to dream bigger dreams; may we dare to venture forth into unchart- ered areas; may we carry on the glorious motto that NORTHWESTERN IS THE MOTHER OF LEARNING IN LOUISIANA. G. W.

The court serves as an impartial body working to equitably administer justice. Selected on the basis of character, scholar- ship, leadership, and interest in student wel- fare, the students serving as justices are chosen by the court from an eligibile list of appointees presented by the mens ' dormitory councils. This year James Poole served as Chief Jus- tice. He was selected by his fellow justices to take the helm. THE HOnOR COURT Seated.

The big event of the year is the spring convoca- tion, where awards are given to the outstand- ing women students on the campus, to the sorority having the highest scholastic average, and to the dormitory having the highest scho- lastic average. The Purple Jackets also present an award to the outstanding sophomore girl at this time.

In their ca- pacity as official hostesses of the college the girls are called on to usher at all Artist Series programs, to show new students and visitors the interesting spots on our campus, to help on registration days, and to do just about anything which may be of service. Needless to say the girls do so willingly and tirelessly. New members are called into the club, which holds the distinction of being the oldest honor organization on the campus, at a very impressive assembly during the spring semester. The girls are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and loyalty to the Alma Mater. Without a doubt they have become an integral factor in the making of a bigger and better Northwestern. At It Again MISS CATHERINE WINTERS Sponsor 33 Top: How did this gang get here? Above: Did you say sports? Top: So that ' s how it ' s done! Above: The wheels talk it over Into the 1949-50 volume of the CURRENT SAUCE are combined the efforts of varied editors, staffs, and busi- ness managers, with Singletary holding the reins the first semester and Murphy the second. " Change " was cer- tainly the motto of the year, as almost nothing the paper began with finished the year — from faculty advisors to the lowest staff member. However, the new eight-page " rag " was still read eagerly on Saturday morning, innumerable special edi- tions from Homecoming(s) to April Fool ' s Day — made the reader wonder just what was coming next. The usual troubles ran rampant — not enough ads, insufficient copy, no reporters, etc. — but, in spite of the troubles, the year ' s publication was gratifying. Archie Singletary signed his name as Editor until ap- proximately mid-semester, when he resigned and Bob Murphy was chosen to fill the vacancy. Murphy, in turn, relinquished his position as business manager to Don Morgan. The staff members were too numerous and varied to be named; included, however, in the line-up were J. C. " Chuck " Tillman, Mai Levee, Louis Farmer, Jerry West, Louise Harris, Clayton " Bo " Taylor, Dot Taylor, Pat Leone, Jan -an LeBlanc, Essie Gabbert, Jean Weeks, Wesley Jackson, and Joe Sterkx. Highlighting the year were pertinent editorials and the Letter-to-the-Editor column, which dealt with diversi- fied subjects from St. Patrick ' s Day to administrative problems. Thus, for the most part, the SAUCE has merely com- pleted one more extremely successful year in the life of a college weekly.

STAFF JAN-AN LeBLANC Editor LOUISE HARRIS Associate Editor FIRAL LEE RYDER Business Manager PAT LEONE Organizations Editor LAURA MAHAN Class Editor BOB MURPHY Sports Editor Sixteen people suddenly found themselves confronted with the publication of a yearbook in October. Most of the planning had already been completed; the dummy was there, class pictures had been snapped, and a tentative schedule had been drawn up — all by the original staff. But changes by the dozens were necessary — a new theme, new artwork, a new beauty section — and all had to be completed by spring. And the staff had to iearn what it was all about before much could be done. Somehow or other, however, the dummy was finished, the Pot- pourri Ball was staged, the beauties were selected, and work began. Then the crash came — no photographer, a new office, numerous drop-outs on the staff, debate trips on the Editor ' s part; conflicts for the few remaining staff members. Deadlines came and went. Anxiety was characteristic of all who entered the office. Finally, all photographic copy was in — and then, the glorious day when the manuscript copy was finished! Thus, the 1950 POTPOURRI was completed. Jan-an LeBlanc, otherwise known as " Chief, " managed to create and coordinate the confusion simultaneously. Eugene Pender and Firal Lee Ryder bal- anced the books; Louise Harris was " jack-of-all-trades " — the assist- ant editor; Pat Leone did everything from taking care of the organi- zations to dub as editor when necessary. Carol Clark was the artist. Bob Murphy handled athletics; Joe Choate the features. Wyatt Westbrook, Edgar Stevens, Ed Adrian, — and last, but not least, " Curtis " produced the pix. Others who contributed were Laura Mahan, Raymond Flores, Don Jones, Dave Lawson, and Eunice Eden. And now — all that can be said is — The book is here! 37 SPEECH Top: " The Black Cat " comes to life Above: Practice makes perfect More to a play than meets the eye The 1949-50 school year saw the speech department extend its program farther into the fields of drama and radio, led by Mr. Donald A. Carr, new member of the department. Two major productions were the brightest spots of the year. LIFE WITH FATHER was presented in the fall, while a musical comedy, COLLEGE WIDOW, was given in the spring. The latter was staged in cooperation with the music department. A variety of student-directed one-acts were also a part of the year ' s activities. This year for the first time a series of radio dramas were broadcast from the college workshop.

All ' s well that ends well Northwestern ' s Days And they didn ' t believe a word of it! Under the direction of Miss Julienne Martin, new forensic coach, the NSC varsity squad continued on its trail of glory during the 1949-50 year, copping three debate champion- ships and numerous places in individual events. Jan-an LeBlanc and Julia McBroom, Senior Women ' s division, added two trophies to the squad collection. The team won first at the Louisiana College meet, the Abilene Christian tourney, and the annual Northwestern tournament held here in March. McBroom opened the year by taking a superior rating at the University of Alabama discussion tournament. Climaxing the year ' s events was the trip to Washington, D. C, for the second annual Georgetown University Invita- tional Tournament. Northwestern ' s delegation, composed of LeBlanc and McBroom and Jimmy Johnson and Luke Petro- vich, competed with universities and colleges from through- out the United States, and made an excellent showing. During the year, the team members also worked with Miss Martin in staging three forensic meets, both high school and college. The season was very successful, both from the standpoint of debate and individual events. Other members of the squad were: Laddie Alexander, Ray Erwin, Basil Kolb, Nettie Jo Baker, Jo Pennington, Cecil Nielson, Marion La Shirah, Billy McCornick, Betty Gibson, and Mariorie White.

W Mi e 3 KrW 40 GENE FLORES Director DEmOllfllRES Under the direction of drum-beater Gene Flores, the Demonaires continued to furnish the rhythm for all-college dances, private parties, and other ac- tivities. Sporting new matching uniforms, the group, en- larged to a record size, advanced and progressed throughout the year. Something new was added when the department-sponsored dances furnished money for new music to provide varied tunes for college hops. Sonny Fisher did the vocals, aided by others at special times.

Their performance in parades and halftime ceremonies of football games in conjunction with the Demonettes proved complimentary to the college and Music Department. On the campus the band has provided musical assemblies, presented concerts and definitely proved that N.S.C. has a well rounded musical program. 43 CHOIR DONALD GLATTLY Director Only under the capable direction of Donald G. Glattly could over one hundred voices blend so perfectly. This group of vocalists is considered one of the best trained and noted musical groups in Louisiana. Much of Mr. Glattly ' s success is due to his wonderful personality which enables him to achieve the best work from his singers. Highlighting the Christmas season was the pres- entation of Handel ' s beautiful " Messiah. " This an- nual program has become a must to students, townspeople, and out of town visitors. A smaller group of more experienced choristers make up what is known as the College Singers. These more select few travel through the State pre- senting a delightful musical program. Because of their excellence they have become well known throughout the state. These two groups should be highly commended for giving so tirelessly and unselfishly of their time for the enjoyment of music lovers. 44 t J College singers give out with strains of Silent Night The Messiah once more highlights the Christmas Season -j :s a_, ' . fin ■ iT 45 Practice, practice, and more practice T H E svmPHonv In its second year under the excellent direc- tion of Val Hill, the Northwestern State Sym- phony Orchestra has made strides in becoming a veteran and polished group of musicians, whose performances continue to win more praise and acclaim. Highlighting the activities of the fall was the presentation of Handel ' s " Messiah " by both the Chorus and the Symphony. During the year the group also distinguished itself by its numerous concerts and programs before the student body and the general public. With a total of forty members the orchestra consists of students in the music department as well as a number of non-music majors and Natchi- toches musicians. The organization itself is bare- ly three years old, but its progress under Mr. Hill marks it as a highly creditable group. Mr. Hill, an accomplished violinist, is a grad- uate of the American Conservatory and Nebras- ka University. Along with his wife, he has pre- sented many programs in Natchitoches and other cities throughout the state. 46 VAL HILL Conductor Birdseye view of concert! « i ll l ' " 0t A 39fl K mm A, ?

Starting off the season with a " limited " backfield, the Demons rode the Oklahoma Broncos to a close 7-6 finish. A pass, Lancaster to Coyle, in the first quarter constituted the only NSC tally.

Taking on the first conference team, the Demon cagers trimmed the Springhill quintet 64-46. The Badgers put up a game fight against the quick- breaking Demon squad only to be outfought all the way. Putting on a spectacular display of shooting ability, the Demon cagers took their seventh straight win from Arkansas Tech. Boasting one of tallest quintets in the nation, Arkansas Tech was highly favored be- fore game time and adding to the odds were the absence of Demon stalwarts Stoutamire, Ranew and Yergler.

The Demon cagers let it be known that they would be the team to beat in the Gulf States conference when they trounced Southwestern Louisiana ' s quintet 57-32. At the beginning minutes of the game, South- western pulled out strong but the sharp eyes of Johnny McConathy and Linwood Outz faded the hopes of the Buiidogs. Outz led the scoring with 19 points with McConathy just behind with 16. This boosted the Demon ' s record to 10 wins in I I starts. Northwestern ' s eleventh win was undoubtedly the hardest fought tussle ever witnessed against Louisi- ana College. Jumping to an early lead, the Wild- cats held on until the last ten minutes of the contest which was somewhat marred by rough play on the part of both teams. Johnny McConathy led high scoring honors by bucketting 15 points and followed up by Stoutamire with 14. This win gave the Demons three conference wins in a row, and surely headed for the top spot in the conference. The Demon ' s fourth and fifth straight conference wins were easily won over the Loyola Wolfpack 65-61 and 61-41. Stoutamire paced high scoring with 23 and 20 points, with Outz in second position with 15 in the first and Hershel McConathy with 19 in the second Having one victory on the road, the Demon quintet took its second by defeating the Southeastern squad. The Lions made a game out of it in the first ten minutes of play, as the two teams battled on even terms, but the sharp-shooting of Hershel McConathy and Outz gave the Demons a 31-21 halftime edge. In the second half, Stoutamire and Outz teamed up to drop in 26 points between them, as the North- westerners ran away with the game. Stoutamire was high point man with 22, followed by Outz with 18. In a fast breaking game, the Demons tripped the Spring Hill College squad for the second time by a score of 71-64. High scoring honors went to Stoutamire who hooked 18 points with Johnny McConathy right behind with 15. A ' Jodie " fakes ' er Northwesterns first conference defeat came when the Missis- sippi Southern Southerners tipped the ever fighting Demon squad after a hard fought battle that finally ended up with a score of 47-40. Tripping Louisiana Tech 43-40, the Demon squad boosted their conference lead to eight victories while only losing one. Little All-America " Jodie " Stoutamire took high scoring honors by copping 16 points. The big slump of the season was now underway when the Outz for two more It ' s in! Outz for another two! Demons dropped their second tilt to Mississippi Southern. Early in the game " Big " Jim Willis left the court when he received a deep cut over the eye. Stoutamire took scoring honors with 21 points and Mississippi Southern ' s Gallagher in the runner-up position. Our second straight loss was to Centenary College after a hard fought battle with a score of 62-54. Centenary ' s Gentlemen played inspired ball in the second half breaking the Demon ' s 32-30 lead at half- time. Although heavily guarded, Stoutamire managed to score 20 points taking high scoring honors. Soing for three road games, the Demons took their third, fourth and fifth loss, losing to South- western, 61-57, Southeastern, 49-44, and Louisiana Tech, 60-55. In the last three contests, the cagers of NSC beat La. College, 74-58, lost to Southeastern, 53-58, and won over the Centenary Gents, 60-55. Northwestern State College ' s 1949-50 basketball squad amassed a total of 1588 points in 26 games compared to 1452 for all opponents. The tie for second place in the conference was through a 10-6 record. Heading the list of Demon scorers was Claude " Jodie " Stoutamire with 428 points on 173 field goals and 82 free throws. Stoutamire ends a brilliant cage career at Northwestern and his replacement will be the chief worry of the Purple and White mentor next season. He played in only 23 of the 26 games.
