All to be Remembered in the Future If UT of many, there is always one who thinks only of helping others and forgets his own comforts and desires. Because of his untiring devotion to both the student body and the administration . . . Because he can be counted on in time of need . . . Because he is understanding in the time of despair . . . Because he has dedicated his whole life to the betterment of North- western . . . Because he has given so much unselfishly, and received so little rec- ognition . . . Because the student body, as a whole, can say, " Truly, he is my friend " . . . We proudly and humbly dedicate the I 955 POTPOURRI to HAL E. TOWNSEND President of N. S. C. We at Northwestern State College are well aware that a campus group constitutes a unique community, and that this community provides singular opportunities for the richest of human experiences. We endeavorto be happily serious academically, to be reasonably carefree in recreation and to live together in a spirit of mutual trust and helpfulness. On our campus, faculty and staff have confidence in the mind and heart of students; students strive to merit the approval of their instructors. Working together, we shall do our utmost to extend the best of the old and to appropriate the good that may come from the spirited use of the new. Our supreme wish is that we may merit the respect and confidence of all who labor for a better college. K% ' aUAs 16 The Deans HAL E.

Although its primary function is legislative, the student senate performs many other services to the student body. In addition to carrying on its legislative program, the senate edits the student hand- book which is issued to incoming students to introduce them to the college. The senate has as its goal the making of student government more representative and valuable to student interests. Mr. Charles Ross, Student Counselor, served as this year ' s sponsor of the senate, giving helpful assistance and advice. The senate is composed of members who are willing to give unselfishly of their time in the interest of the student body of Northwestern.

What a revoltin ' development The Honor Court The Student Honor Court is composed of seven justices nominated by the Dormitory Councils, selected by the Hon- or Court, and approved by the Advisory Board. The Honor Court serves as the disciplinary body of student government and has delegated power to act upon cases of violation or infraction of the rules governing the conduct of men stu- dents on the campus. By building higher standards of con- duct and citizenship on the campus among the men students, and by administering justice through a student group, the court represents another step forward in student govern- ment.

The Associated Women Students Council was organized at Northwestern in 1947. It is a member of the Intercollegiate Association of Women Students. The purpose of this organi- zation is to promote, in cooperation with the Dean of Women, the intellectual, social and spiritual welfare of women students, to devel- op self-responsibility, and a spirit of coopera- tion, and to uphold high social and academic standards among women students. The Execu- tive Council guides the Association and the Judicial Board acts in the event of violation of rules governing women students. Membership is automatic upon enrollment in the college. Through the Big Sister program and the work of Sophomore Counselors, help is given the freshmen women students. Highlighting the year ' s activities are the " A.W.S. Backward Dance, " Christmas at Home, and Spring Con- vocation. The Purple Jackets The Purple Jacket Club which was founded by President V. L. Roy in 1927, is the oldest honor club to be organized on the campus. Formerly directed by Miss Calherine Winters, the group is now under the sponsorship of Miss Ruth Tatum. 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 administrative 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 co- operate 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.

Publishing The Current Sauce is not a seasonal " sport, " but a week-after-week routine, which can be as monotonous or as exciting as the news it covers. Everything happening on this campus is a story. Not all the stories make front page head- lines; some never even get close to the ink. News-wise this is a very cooperative campus. This plus a small but real ink-blooded staff of collegiate journalists give the Sauce the coverage it maintains. Though not always " current " because of occasional technical difficulties, the college newspa- per has all the " sauce " — and usually pretty well seasoned with campus doings. The Current Sauce, " published weekly, except during holidays and test weeks, by the Student Body of Northwestern State College, " has the most freedom of any college press anywhere. Maybe once or twice this past year as in others, this privilege has been abused, but at least the Sauce is not an opinionless wad of newsprint. Sauce has sometimes not only " all the news that ' s fitto print " but then some. AVON McBRIDE Editor JOHN SPATARO Business Manager 34 AVON McBRIDE . HESTER BROWN . JOHN SPATARO JERRY BYRD .

Wait your turn, Jimmye! Now it ' s funny Hiding, Gerald? The 1955 POTPOURRI had its beginning last August, when Janis Meyer and Louise Pons traveled to Benson Print- ing Company in Nashville, Tennessee to lay out the dummy. The year has been filled with the gathering of material, the Potpourri Ball, the selection of the beauties, and the many, many other things that it takes to make a yearbook. We wish to thank all those who have made this book possible, especially to Mr. W. A. Benson, Jr., of Benson Printing Company; Mr. Jimmy Cobb, of Shreveport Engraving Company; and Mr. Robert Humphrey, our faculty advisor, of much patience and understanding in time of need. The 1954-55 staff of the POTPOURRI have tried to bring you a record of the past year in this book — we hope you like it.

The band has been in demand for all-college dances, private dances, and high school dances throughout the state, as well as being called upon to play at air bases. Music by the Demonaires consisted of current popular hits, all-time favorites, Latin- American numbers and the always-in-demand " Jump Tunes.

The debaters started the year off right by taking sweepstakes in three divisions — senior men, senior women, and junior women — at their second tournament in Ada, Oklahoma. Compiling the points for these honors were one first place, one superior rating, three excellent ratings, one third place, seven good ratings, and seven other finalists. At the Savage meet in Durant, Oklahoma, this spring, the squad earned one first place, five second places, five third places, and ten other finalists, including a third place in debate for Naomi Meadows and Edwina Foster. The squad hosted the Louisiana Speech tournament with 25 schools participating. S.M.U. won sweepstakes honors here, but the local de- baters had two first places and a second. The squad also sponsored a high school debate meet and a coaches ' clinic. Three debaters, along with Coach Graham, attended the national Pi Kappa Delta tournament in Redlands, California, where Phil Wilcox and Weldon Walker competed in debate, Richard Smith in oratory and discussion. At other tournaments in Ruston, Clinton and Jackson, Mississippi, Waco and Nacogdoches, Texas, the team received two superior rat- nigs, one excellent rating, had two other finalists, and four debate teams reached the elimination rounds. ARTHUR FIEDLER nd THE BOSTON POPS TOUR ORCHESTRA 48 The Artist Series The Artist Series, in cooperation with the Natchi- toches Concert Association attempts to bring to the campus numbers that will appeal to faculty, towns- people, and students — numbers that are excellent in the field of music, dance, and drama. This season ' s offerings included Nelson and Neal in a two-piano con- cert; the Boston Pops Symphony Orchestra; the Chan- ticleers Male Quartette; and The Caine Mutiny Court- Martial starring William Bendix. Through the hospitality extended to the artists by the committees, many stu- dents and faculty members have had the added oppor- tunity of meeting the artists socially.

Then in the fall of 1954 the United States Army decided to switch the artillery to the present cur- riculum of Branch General. Under the program, a student, upon graduation, is commissioned in the army branch of his choice. Under the guidance of Lt. Col.

A large crowd attended the gathering, one of the most outstanding ever to convene on the 70-year-old campus of Northwestern. Held on April I and 2, the joint ceremonies marked the inauguration of President Kyser and the formal opening of the Graduate School of Education. Eighty-six dignitaries and leaders in education throughout the nation attended. Colleges and universities represented ranged from Harvard, founded in 1636, to Francis T. Nicholls Junior College, founded in 1948. Among the speakers for the occasion were Dr. Doak S. Campbell, president of Florida State University: Dr. Roger P. McCutcheon, former dean of Graduate School at Tulane, and Dr. T. M. Stinnett of the National Education Association. 137 V HARRY MOORE President Firsr Row: BARBARA ANDREWS . . .

Five straight wins, the heartbreaking loss to Tech, two more impressive victories and the final dis- aster at Southeastern highlighted the ' 54 campaign. Two Demon seniors — center Dudley Downing and guard Bob Tatum — were named to the NAIA All-American team. In addition, sophomore tackle Charlie Johnson and senior full- back Searle Walton were first-team selections on the All-Gulf States Conference eleven. A rock-ribbed defense and relentless ground attack were the trademarks of the Purple and White gridders. Only the lack of a consistent passing attack stood between the De- mons and greatness. THE COACHES H. Alvin Brown ( Backfleld ) ; Harry H. Turpin (Head Coach); Walter P. Ledet (Line). Most Valuable Player DUDLEY DOWNING N. S. C. 15; Central Oklahoma 6 Starting off the season in efficient if unspec- tacular form, the scrappy NSC eleven came to life in the third quarter for two quick touchdowns and a I 5 to 6 victory over the Central State College Bronchos of Edmond, Oklahoma. First-half scoring was limited to a field goal by Demon halfback Roland Smith and a 25-yard run by Oklahoma end Bill Moody with a blocked punt. Immediately following the intermission, however, NSC fullback Searle Walton crashed down the middle for 40 yards and followed it up with a six-yard pay dirt drive. Rugged defensive work detached the Okies from the ball on the next series of downs and halfback Clyde Chesson wrapped it up with an I 8-yard beauty. f - f ▲ Top: Forced landing Bottom: Ticklish situation They call it mambo Word from the prexy N. S. C. 22; Lamar Tech 15 Depth paid off in Northwestem ' s second outing as Coach Harry Turpin ' s noggin-knockers used a last-quarter scoring splurge for a 22-13 win over powerful Lamar Tech at Beaumont, Texas. Tackle Charlie Johnson dropped back from the 10-yard line to boot a field goal and give the Demons a 3-0 lead in the first quarter, but Lamar quarterback Jerry Boone put the Cardinals ahead by 6-3 with a 20-yard scamper just before half- time. Halfback Don Millen of Northwestern and half- back Sammy Carpenter of Tech, two All-Confer- ence scatbacks, swapped touchdowns in the last half before the Turpinmen took charge of things with two TD ' s by halfback Roland Smith and full- back Searle Walton. Smith converted once for the final 22- 1 3 margin. 166 " V t. •» ■ ' •L 35 i H i " W ff| Definition of Body Contact A fired-up crew of Northwestern gridders built up an impressive 26-0 halftime margin and staved off a comeback effort by the McNeese Cowboys to chalk up their first Gulf States Conference victory of the season, 32 to 20. The NSC ground attack rolled through the Cowpokes almost at will for the first thirty minutes. Halfback Clyde Chesson scored the first two six-pointers on dives of three and seven yards. Then quarterback " Red " McNew hit pay- dirt on a 66-yard punt runback and quarterback Dan Carr slipped around end for 25 yards and Northwestern ' s fourth first-half touchdown. Casual substituting in the second half almost got the Purple and White gridders into hot water in the second half as McNeese put itself back into the ball game, 26-20, on three quick touchdowns by Max Jones, Ken King and Mack Bryan. But the " big boys " came back and put it on ice by marching the length of the field in the closing min- utes, with fullback Searle Walton crossing the double- stripes from the 3-yard line in the last 30 seconds for the clincher.

College Northwestern overpowered an inspired band of Louisiana College Wildcats in the annual Central Louisiana gridfest at Alexandria to gain an import- ant 6 to conference victory. Substitute fullback Don Purser broke through the line for 26 yards and the game-winning touch- down late in the second guarter to kill the Baptists ' upset hopes. Earlier in the guarter a 60-yard touch- down run by LaCollege halfback Marshall Ryan had been nullified by a backfield-in-motion pen- alty. A Wildcat drive in the last guarter was stopped at the NSC 15-yard line by All-American center Dudley Downing ' s pass interception. The Pause that Refreshes Ugh! GARY HICKMAN End N.S.C. 38 Southeastern Oklahoma The surging Demons rolled to their fifth straight victory of the season and seventh in succession, the longest winning streak at Demonland since pre- Pearl Harbor days, by completely outclassing the highly-touted Southeastern (Oklahoma State Col- lege Savages, 38 to 0. Halfback Don Millen tallied twice, fullback Searle Walton once (on an 86-yard run), quarter- back " Red " McNew once, halfback Roland Smith once and quarterback Dan Carr once in North- western ' s most one-sided victory since the second game of the I 950 season.

Other participants in the Demon Touchdown Parade were Searle Walton, Don Millen, Clyde Chesson and Dan Carr.

RAYMOND BATES Halfback 172 Reinforcements comi.ig Playing in an unfamiliar underdog role for the first time of the season, Coach Turpin ' s back-to- the-wall Demons literally tore the Southwestern Bulldog apart before a Homecoming Crowd, 34 to 7. It was the most lop-sided Demon win over the always-rough Southwestern eleven in Coach Tur- pin ' s 34 years as head coach. Northwestern went all the way the first time it touched the ball and didn ' t let up until the Bulldogs finally scratched on the game ' s last play from scrimmage.

In the last half " Red " McNew returned a punt 82 yards and senior halfback George Perkins cracked through the line for 1 9 yards for the fourth and fifth Northwestern TD ' s. A pass from Frank Gearen to Gene Burleigh accounted for SLI ' s only touchdown on the last play of the game from scrimmage. Watch your step! All in the game N. S.

EDWIN SCHROEDER Guard JACK BICE Halfback An injury-riddled Demon crew fought valiantly in the first half to hold unbeaten, untied Southeastern Louisiana to a 6 to 6 intermission tie, but a hospital list that grew with each play finally gave the Southeasterners a 32-6 decision in the game which decided the GSC champion- ship. The All-Conference passing battery of Ray Porta to Huey Husser gave SLC an early lead, but Northwestern ' s unsung heroes — the " Shock Troopers " — marched 90 yards in the second quarter to knot it up again, with Larry Whitt scoring on an end run from the four. The dam broke in the last half when Northwestern ' s All- Conference tackle, Charlie Johnson, was sidelined with other Demon regulars. SLC scatbacks Don Marino, Louis Carlisle and Mickey Catalanotto broke loose for the four touchdowns that wrapped up the Lions ' perfect season. And so ... a three -way tie with Tech and Southwest- ern for second place in the conference, the best over-all record since World War II, two All-Americans (no other Louisiana college had more than one) and the " fightingest " bunch of noggin-knockers in the Bayou Belt — that sums up the Northwestern Football Story of 1954. MARVIN WAMPOLD End 1954-55 Basketball Squad . . . " She just keeps rolling along ' 1955 Basketball Same song, second verse Coach Charles (Red) Thomas ' 1954-55 basket- ball five continued the winning tradition in the hardwood sport at Northwestern by capturing half of the Gulf States Conference championship and winning the Mid-West Tournament champion- ship — both for the second straight years. The resemblance between the 1954-55 Demons THF MANAGERS Tom George, Fred Broussard, Jerry Byrd, " Smiley " Christmas. Three Straight 20-Game Winners and the I 953-54 crew doesn ' t end there; last year ' s team set GSC scoring records for overall games and also for conference games. This year ' s Demon five broke both records. High-scoring forward George McConathy was named to the first team of the All-GSC squad. Lightning-fast guards Dick Brown and Bill Collins- worth — the Demons ' two " big little men " — were selected to the second team. Brown and Collinsworth were also named to the All-Tourney team at the Mid-West Tournament in Terre Haute, Indiana, which NSC won for the second straight year. Thus the Demons became the second team in the tournament ' s 12-year history to win two straight crowns. No team has won it three straight. Another " first " for Northwestern was the sec- ond straight GSC co-championship, this time with Louisiana Tech. No other team in conference his- tory has figured in two straight championships. The season started on a spectacular scale, as " little " Northwestern played Giant-Killer against the University of Arkansas by a 74-68 count. The Razorbacks, destined to finish second in the Southwest Conference, ran up a 12-point lead in the first half but saw it evaporate quicker than a Louisiana snow. For the last I 5 minutes of the COACH CHARLES F. " RED " THOMAS fj 1 J K I With The Demons game Demons Brown, Ronnie Lebo and Murrell Walker played " hide and seek " with the frantic Porkers. The speedy Brown outsped a tall North Texas five in Denton to score 30 points and lead the Demons to a 76-58 conquest of the Eagle hoop- sters, but two nights later Southwest Conference championship-bound Southern Methodist Univer- sity used accuracy at the free throw line to clip the NSC fast-breakers 99 to 86. In the Demons ' home opener freshman guard Ronnie Lebo dropped in I 5 points to top the pur- ple and White crew in a rough-and-tumble 79 to 65 victory over Southern State of Magnolia, Ar- kansas. Two straight losses brought the Northwestern percentage mark to the .500 mark for the first — and only — time of the season as Stephen F. Austin clobbered the Demons 72 to 54 and powerful Southeastern Oklahoma buried Coach " Red " Thomas ' charges under a I 04 to 79 avalanche. Following the Oklahoma disaster — which was the first time an opponent had ever reached the three-figure mark against a Thomas-coached NSC squad — the scrappy Demons bounced right back to nip the same team, 64 to 60, in the season ' s number one thriller and the turning p oint of the year. Brown tallied 2 1 points, McConathy 1 3 and Upsetting University of Arkansas Lilley vs. Tech Collinsworth I I in the second Oklahoma tilt. Brown and Collinsworth spent the last ten minutes dribbling the ball untouched five feet from the center line. When the Savages decided to play for the ball it was too late. The Southeastern five went from there to place second in the National Intercollegiate tournament. After a shortened Christmas holiday period Northwestern journeyed to Terre Haute to suc- cessfully defend its Mid-West championship. In the tourney the Demons clipped Central Missouri, 89 to 75, and Anderson College, 65 to 59, in win- ning Number Two. En route home the Demon five paused at Bates- ville, Ark., long enough to come out on top of a hectic 61 to 60 scrap with tiny Arkansas College, as George McConathy hung up 20 points for scor- ing honors, including two " money " free throws in the last five seconds.

Col- linsworth and Waple Lilley were the big guns for the Demons with 20 and 1 9 points, respectively. Opening Gulf States Conference action in im- pressive fashion, Northwestern outran high-scor- ing Northeast to finish on top of a hectic 101-94 duel. Northeast guard Melvin Gibson scored 38 points, but a well-balanced Demon scoring punch led by McConathy ' s 24 marker proved to be too much for the c lassy Indians. A pair of free throws by forward Jap Gullat GEORGE McCONATHY Forward DICK BROWN Guard BILL COLLINSWORTH Guard m e n t Again gave Louisiana Tech an 82-81 win over NSC at Ruston and darkened the Demons ' early-season championship hopes. With the loss went a six- game winning streak. Gullat ' s game-winning points came in the last 30 seconds of play. Centenary College was the victim of a rebound- ing Northwestern crew as the Gents fell in a 94-9 I thriller. Brown took offensive laurels in that bitter rivalry with 32 points. Northwestern ' s " flat " basketballers were steam- rollered by Stephen F. Austin for the second time in the season by a 78-73 tally. NSC trailed by 28-5 after eight minutes, but kept plugging away and reduced the margin to five points in the last two minutes. Southwestern was the victim of a terrific sec- ond-half splurge at Natchitoches next as the Bull- dogs, after trailing by only two points at the in- termission, saw the bottom drop out and flopped by 9 I to 55.

Next in line was an 84 to 82 edge over always- powerful Southeastern, as all Demon regulars chipped in to crush the Lions ' home-court win- ning tradition. Returning home, Northwestern drubbed McNeese 87 to 69 with McConathy racking up 3 I . The highest-scoring game of the year saw Coach " Red " Thomas ' warhorses rip into South- eastern on the Natchitoches boards, 106 to 78. Then the Demons rode into the conference lead with an overtime 99 to 94 decision over South- western at Lafayette. Classy Bill Riegle of McNeese poured 32 points through the hoops as the Cowboys finished strong to beat Northwestern 60 to 59 at Lake Charles. Gimme! JAMES ENLOE Forward BUDDY FOSHEE Forward PAUL McGOWAN Forward Cagers Hit 106 Against S. L. In the following game NSC made it four straight over Centenary with a 79-76 overtime win. Lebo hit a long set shot in the last I 5 seconds to throw the game into overtime and s et the stage for the victory. A 98-85 win over scrappy Louisiana College set the stage for Northwestem ' s final two regular- season games. In the first Tech gave a Demons a 93-72 shellacking and in the second NSC cinched half the championship with a solid 92-69 win over Northeast. The Thomasmen still weren ' t through with Tech. In the first game of a three-game playoff to see who represented Louisiana at the National Inter- collegiate tournament in Kansas City Northwest- ern copped the first game at Natchitoches, 93-9 I , but dropped the last two by scores of 83-80 and 95-92. Both were played at Ruston. With five regularly-playing seniors leaving, Northwestern has a terrific replacement problem ahead for next year. But, with three straight 20- game seasons behind him, Demon mentor " Red " Thomas is already planning on a fourth. 1954 GULF STATES CONFERENCE TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONS Top Row, left to riqht: Charles Johnson, Mixon Bankston, Ted Duggan, George McConathy, Ernie Ledet, Ted Simon and manager Eugene (Smiley) Christmas.

Finally, the team buckled down to work with a nucleus of newcom- ers " Casey " Bryant, Willard Rachel, Bill Chamber- lin, Jack Freeman and Alvin DeBlieux. The team defeated Northeast during the regular season to post one more victory than the preceding team. The tennis tournament for GSC schools is also scheduled for Natchitoches this year.
