Y 7 4. — w S b z Veation In our treasure chest of memories, there is always one that is worth more than all the jewels in the world. The same applies to the friends and persons whom we have met in our College life. We especially remember . . . One who has devoted fifteen years of his life to the betterment of the " good ship NORTHWESTERN " . . . One whose ready wit and lively humor has endeared him in the hearts of every boy and girl on the campus . . . One who has made hundreds of friends among the students and I acuity because he is never too busy to lend a helping hand . . . One who is faithful and honest in his dealings with the people with whom he comes in contact . . . One who is known and respected by men in schools throughout the state . . . We proudly dedicate the 1954 Potpourri to " DOC " PAUL C. MARX 1 X Administration THE PRESIDENT MY VALEDICTORY As I endeavor to write this, mv valedictory message to the past and present students of Northwestern State Col- lege for the Potpourri of 1954. I am torn by many deep and varied emotions. I am once more made most poignant- ly aware of the emptiness of mere words and their utter inability to sound the depths of human emotions. As we look back ever the past forty years, we are im- pressed by the fact that they have been for us very good years indeed. It we have succeeded to some extent in point- in " out the lasting benefits of healthful living, if we have impressed upon the minds of a few students our rich politi- cal heritage and the duties and responsibilities of citizen- ship under our form of government, if we have given proper emphasis to the importance of high ideals and of moral and spiritual values, if we have displayed even in the heat of conflict that degree of true sportsmanship which we have ever urged our teams to display, if we have been able to win without boasting and lose without griping, if we have helped to fan into flame the dying spark of am- bition in the breast of some young man or woman. If we have helped to make it possible for deserving young men and women to secure an education who could not have done so without such help, if we have for the most part been kind, courteous and considerate, if when we have had to say " no. " we have done so with a smile, and if we have consistently in passing judgment, tempered justice with mercy, then the forty years have not been spent in vain. Au revoir. but not good bye. Sincere!) . 2J THE DEANS The Dean of Women and I lie Dean of Mm contribute a greal service to Northwestern State College.

Working closely with the Student Body, the Senate, and the Faculty, this year ' s Student Council fostered not only good will and cooperation between the various campus groups and organizations, but played an integral role in promoting and achieving the overwhelming rise in school spirit. Planned by the Council were pep rallies, assemblies, elections, and numerous other programs, which supplied opportunities for the students to express them- selves and to acquaint themselves with the college itself. The Council played host to Louisiana Tech at the Shreveport State Fair, worked jointly with Louisiana College to stage the Cen-La Fair festivities, and played an important part in producing an effective Student Federation of Louisiana Colleges and Universities. In Conjunction with the Senate, the Council built a float for the Christmas pa- rade and worked to revise the Cut Sytem.

Though its primary function is legislative, the senate per- formed many other services to the NSC Student body. The senate continued its sponsorship of the student film program, which brings educational and entertaining films to the campus. The editing of the student handbook was again done by the senate as another service outside its legislative duties. The handbook is published by the col- lege as a quarterly and is issued to the incoming student. In an attempt to show the student body that the legis- lative branch of student government can play an important role in campus life, the senate undertook an aggressive policy in performing services to the students, in making studies of campus situations, and in taking stands upon issues. The senate was fortunate to have Mr. Leroi Eversull of the social studies department both as sponsor of the senate and of the film program. His assistance and advice proved indispensable to the proper functioning of the senate. The senate was also fortunate in having members who were willing to work unselfishly in the interest of the stu- dent body and Northwestern State College.

CHARLES HOI, LOW V Chief Justice Composed of seven justices nominated by the Dormitory Councils, selected by the Honor Court, and approved by the Advisory Board, the Student Honor Court serves as the disciplinary body of stu- dent government. The Honor Court has the delegated power to act in the event of violation or infraction of the rules which govern the conduct of men stu- dents on the campus. With the purposes of building higher standards of conduct and citizenship on the campus among the men students and to equitably administer justice through a student sponsored tri- bunal of men, the court, in itself, serves as a definite step forward in the trend to a more responsible stu- dent government. 34 i in i.w.s. i i.( i rivE 01 mil ,eft to right : iirit-r, Dean Glliard, Johnson, King, ElUott, TJ pson, George, and Evans, EDD1 GENE ELLIOTT President Top: THE JUDICIAL UO.MU) Left l " right : Wilkinson, Powell, George, Rnmsej and King:.

Through the years it has worked to promote, in cooperation with the Dean o| Women, the in- tellectual, social and spiritual welfare ol women students, to develop self-responsibility, and a pirit of cooperation and friendship; and to uphold high social and academii standards among women students. The Association i- guided by the Executive Council and the Judicial Board acts in the event of violation of rules governing women stu- dents. Membership is automatic upon enrollment in the college.

Roy in 1927. is the oldest honor club to be organized on the campus. The group has been guided these many years by the capable hands of Miss Catherine Winters. It has as its purpose to serve the college and student body as their official representatives. The members act as assistant hostesses on college occasions. They assist, upon request, in carrying out any program of the faculty or administra- tive staff. They work together to further development of character and leadership. The Purple Jacket Club honors women students who have demonstrated good scholarship, good character and a desire to cooperate with all units of the college in unselfish service. Highlighting this year ' s Purple Jacket activities were the Purple Jacket Homecom- ing, annual Purple Jacket Review, and the Spring Trip.

Sport liter- ? ? ? 1 he Current Sauce, under the editorship of Don Finley, strove to fulfill its obligations to the students through both its news columns and it editorial page, and to presenl each week an attractive and interesting paper. By giving a complete coverage of campus news and l taking definite stands upon controversial issues, the Current Sauce published a weekly newspaper which the stu- dents looked forward to reading. Their interest was manifested in the main letters-to- the-editor that were received throughout the vear. The Current Sauce boasted of a competent and hard-working staff. Special mention should be made of Business Manager John Spataro and Sports Editor Billy Baker, who. along with the editor, formed the backbone of the Sauce. Thanks go also to Faculty Ad- visor John Merrill, whose assistance and advice was invaluable. The staff feels that it finished the year with a job well done in presenting the student body with a Current Sauce of which Northwestern could be proud. How did M ron manage this?

Can I say something THE 1954 POTPOURRI This the 1954 Potpourri, is a tribute to the guiding hand of whatever fates protect the weak and the inconsistent. For without them, the people who are responsible for this concoction of pictures, lay-outs. copy, blood, sweat and tears would have never suc- ceeded. The year began way back last June when the " Big Three " ' treked Nashville-ward to put on the layout paper of the Benson Printing Company their plans for the 54 Pot- pourri. Little did we realize then what faced us in the months to come. Classes cut, sleep and friends lost forever, the innumerable decisions to make, the grades in a spin, the beauties to be judged on television, the Potpourri BALL to be given — these were the forces we faced. But on our side was the hope that this Potpourri of 1954 would please every one in one way or another. If it doesn ' t, blame it on Anne Hungerbeeler, who held the reins and cracked the whip: Wanna Beth Sanders, who tried to make ends meet; Gerald Tilleux. the Assistant Editor: and Billv Baker, who called himself the Student Advisor. Our thanks go to Mr. John C. Merrill. Faculty Advisor, for his wonderful cooperation. ' Her Highness. Tell me when you ' re ready. Everything ' s " rosy " with us.

One of the most remarkable accomplishments of this group is their continued superiority when the personnel changes each year. They always achieve a group unity, a personal pride in performance and an infectious enthus- iasm which completely captivates their listeners. They have become, for all practical purposes, an adopted child of the Elks. Last summer they sang at the National Convention of Elks in St. Louis where they gave fifteen performances in five days. We congratulate " the Singers " and their zealous director. " Mr. G. " for the splendid rep- resentation they have given our school throughout the nation. The traditional performance of Handel ' s " The Messiah " was again a welcome expression of the true spirit of Christ- mas in a land of firecrackers. The chorus of 160 was made up of the College chorus, and the College Singers, aug- mented by singers from the local community and neigh- boring towns.

DEBATE Late last spring, three members of the Northwestern Debate Squad traveled to Kala- mazoo. Michigan for the National Convention of Pi Kappa Delta, which is the honorary forensic society. Pat Hankins and Anne Torrans copped a Superior rating in debate, Anne Torrans received an excellent in extemporaneous speaking, and Vera Graham was rated excellent in discussion and good in oratory. The girls received a team rating of Superior, and won Sweepstakes, in competition with 130 colleges from all over the country. The entire squad attended the tournaments, this year, at Ruston. Louisiana, Ada and Durant. Oklahoma, and Fayetteville, Arkansas. At the first tournament of the year, in Ruston, Anne Torrans received a first place in extemp. Vera Graham a first in Poetry Reading and a first in Radio. Torrans and Graham were rated Superior in debate, and Doyle Carter and Phil Wilcox, freshmen debators received a Good in Debate. At Ada first and second places were won by Dave Lawson, Phil Wilcox. Merrill Smith and Vera Graham. In debate, Graham and Torrans received a Superior rating. The var- sity girls were awarded Senior Women ' s Sweepstakes, aided by Mazie Dranguet, who reached the finals in several events. The debators, in addition to attending tournaments, have taken part in sponsoring the two annual meets held on our own campus, and the debate clinic, held early in the fall.

The Northwestern Artist Series committee in conjunction with the Natchitoches Concert Association has succeeded in bringing to the campus a varied and entertaining program of well known artists. In selecting the program for the year, the committee seeks to arrange a balanced and varied pro- gram which will have wide appeal and interest among the students, faculty, and townspeople. Through the Artist Se- ries program students are given the opportunity to see and hear well known artists, thus supplementing their college experience culturally.

" The mystery of the supernatural and the gunslinging days of old all had their place on the N.S.C. stage. Dr. Edna West, since taking over as director of the N.S.C. theater, has produced such established stars as Jack Sharp, Chick Graham, Pat Hankins. Gerald Tilleux and many others. Outstanding newcomers to the college theater were Hester Brown. Don Lyons. Faye Book, and many others. The guest star of the year was Miss Eve Mouton. whose sterling performance as Madam Arcoti in " Blithe Spirit ' won her the acclaim of Northwestern theater goers.

' COACH OF THE YEAR 1 9 As a climax to the brilliant show put on by the Demons during the 1953 football season, Harry " Rags " Turpin was selected " Coach of the Year " in the Gulf States Conference. The honor was fitting and more than proper for the NSC mentor. To most of the Northwestern student body, local supporters and opponents, the announcement of " Rags " to the honorary po- sition came as no surprise. Coach Turpin took over his Demon squad with just 16 of his players lettermen, a host of freshman talent undeveloped, and a few transfer students. From this maze of material he molded the 1953 Demons. The selection of Turpin came on December 8 at a -meeting of GSC coaches. Coach Turpin accepted the highest honorary posi- tion a GSC coach could have with modesty, giving credit to his assistants, Coaches Walter Ledet and H. Alvin Brown. Coach Turpin had high praise for his 1953 team, calling it one of the " best teams — menially, physically, and morally " in the history of Northwestern State College. And he should know, he helped make them so. Playing two platoon football will) .1 team alternating each quarter, the NSC Demons were defeated 7-0 l Centra] Slate College l Oklahoma, orth c tei 11 could do nothing right. Constanl fumbling and hap-hazard tack- ling made the contesl a slow, long-drawn oul affair. Vfter the Demons bobbled the ball on the first pla from crimma°;e. Central recoxeicd and marched for a touchdown. Quarterback Bill Dutton accounted for the score, and hall- hack Gerald ( ' heck kicked the extra point. %CI ioiss •-• , ...•■■.-- -■ _ WC8 " ' oft L - " ' it, f-0 »I»rf " " ' Wah ° " " " ' « rf c Below: Hey!

Rabid rooters, who showed up for the game even though expecting the worst, found a new spark in the Demon furnace. A shifty-speedy half- back paved the way for the Demons. Running from the split-T formation, un- known until this time to the Purple and White, Jack Bice cradled a pitch-out and skirted around left end for 45 yards and pay dirt. Again in the early part of the third canto, Bice intercepted a Tech pass and streaked 55 yards to score. Everyone was surprised at the results, ex- cept the players who dug in for the victory.

" " Ride ' em Cowboys ' In surpassing the MeNeese State College Cowboys, 20-6. the Demons showed a strong improvement in hustle and team play. Led by James McNevv and Don Millen, NSC romped freely. Northwestern scored the second time they got their hands on the ball. A pass from James McNew to John Abies accounted for the tally. Don Millen. a brier in the Cowboys ' saddle all night, added the second T-D in the third quar- ter. McNew scored the last tally. George Per- kins booted three extra points. Fans outside the NSC metropolis now seemed to be catching on to the fire and spirit that these boys were generating. 14? pa " " " - ' 14 ,fc n Sc co» a «, ■ O " 10 ' " A - With a never-say-die, come-from-behind atti- tude that was the Northwestern trademark dining the 1953 season, the Demons defeated the Louisiana College Wildcats 9-7 in the an- nual Cen-la Fair football game. George Per- kins came off the bench in the last 30 seconds to kick a field goal that supplied the Demons with their slim margin of victory. Clyde Chesson scored early in the first period from ten yards out, but the Catmen of La. College drove back and held a 7-6 halftime lead. Late in the final quarter, Jack Bice re- turned a punt 50 yards and put the Demons into scoring position, and thus set up the game- winning boot. Northwestern was now definitely in the race for the G.S.C. crown. Tin- posse arrives . . . loo late. Choke! v8 J ■■■■t Top: " I want you. " Lbuv : HroilitM-h love.

Tech, fielding its four equally bril- liant teams, found out very quickly that it only needs one team to win a hall game. NSC showed tlif arch-rivals that fact by downing them 15-7 in the State Fair contest. Clyde Chesson was the hero as he did vir- tually every feat required of a good hack. He scored the first T-D lor NSC and was a work- horse the entire game. James McNew scored the second touchdown in the third period, and Earl Haynes kicked a fourth quarter field goal to insure the victory. The score was not indicative of the hall game. The Demons completely out-played the Techsters in every department. And they still called it an " upset " ???? 145 .. .„■■ Every eye in the GSC was centered on the Demon turf when the NSC team met South- eastern. The outcome of the conference could have heen settled in that dilema. However, the Demons lost 27-19. The Lions were greedy for victory and scored three touchdowns in the first nine min- utes dI play before Northwestern buckled down. From then on, it was a hard-fighting Demon machine trying desperately to come from behind. NSC surged with Searle Walton scoring late in the first quarter on a 41 yard jaunt. James McNew added another tally in the second period on a 75 yard punt return. Each scored a glory marker in the last half. Below: " . . . And then I lunged ;it him. " Bottom: " You old meanv vou!

IT WAS THE BEST Football history of Northwestern State College added a chapter to its annals which, in all probability, will set a precedent for the future. Unlike the previous season, the Demons wore the wraps of a new ball club. When last season defeat came in the final quarters, this year, victory was strengthened in that period. When once an injury riddled grid team hobbled onto the turf, a strong, stout, well-conditioned crew bore the Purple and White colors marvelously. Thus Northwestern earned its share of the Gulf States Conference crown, and every day quarterbacks retold the marvelous feats of their favorite player. He was a hero pos- sibly unsung by the sports casters, or maybe he was the sub who knocked heads with the first string charges in everyday scrimmage. None the less he was a part of the es ' prit de corps that wore the Purple and White jerseys. Conversation spouted among the admirers of the gridiron sport. The look was toward the future, and the Demon warriors of next season. An offer to play in the Shrimp Bowl in Galveston, Texas excelerated the morale, hopes and wishes of the NSC metropolis. However, the offer was declined. It was enough to know that the offer was made. Besides having Coach Turpin selected as GSC ' " Coach of the Year. " Northwestern placed three players on the All-GSC first team, a fourth of the number selected. Don Millen. John Abies, and Bob Tatum garnered the honors, and were only a few of the many who made NSC prominent. A share of the GSC crown ... a well groomed team ... an offer to the Shrimp Bowl . . . three berths on the mythical GSC team . . . honorary " Coach of the Year " award . . . were the pleasant tales told of Demon football and the 1953 season. 148 f £ i! £ 1 ' FIRST l«( . left l rigrht: Walker, . .lull, Loften, Smith, Bice, Pickering:, Ford, Milieu, HcNew, Dnpree, Little.

TITLE Northwestern State College had one of its greatest seasons in the history of Demon basketball, compiling a sensational 23-9 record. I nlikc previous seasons, the Purple and White did ex- ceedingly well in Gulf States Conference competition, copping a share of the GSC crown with an 1 1-1 mark. Against independent opponents and in the NAIA state playoff, NSC boasts an 11-8 CO. M ( . I . I HUM showing. Perhaps the greatest feat of the season, other than the tie in the Gulf States, was capturing the Midwest Invitational Tournament in Terre Haute. Ind. dining the Christmas holidays. In that tour- ney, the Demons heat the best of the small college basketball teams. Wheaton, Central Missouri State, and Findlay College were the " Giants " downed by the Thomas crew . Opening the season on a road trip into Texas, NSC fell to the North Texas State Eagles, 7 ( )-73. The Eagles had to put down a vicious last quarter scoring assault b) the Demons to end the game. In Dallas, Texas the next night, the Mustangs shelled 31 points through the nets in the final ten minutes to stomp the De- mons. 90-71. 1953-54 SCHEDULE NSC. NSC. NSC. NSC. NSC. NSC. NSC. NSC. NSC.
