The dramatics class of 1947-48, under the direc-
tion of Mr. Robert Walker, staged four delightful
plays for a very enthusiastic student body.
The first play of the year, "Fair and Warmer,"
amusingly revealed the problems of the weather man.
Members of the cast were Buddy Clayton, Betty
Waldman, Shirley Pensel, Ann Newsom, Freddie
Aduddell and Ann Schulte.
"The Proposal," presented both for assembly and
for Open House during American Education Week,
proved to be a tremendous hit with the students and
adults alike. The play, in the form of a lecture,
demonstrated different types of proposals. Travis
jackson, Bill Warren, Ruth Tidwell, Bill Matthews,
Barbara Williams, Howard Weekley, jane Schillig,
Lee Bloomfield, Keith Bess, Mara Lee Cotten, Earl
Boardman, Alice Martin, Don Mize and Ann New-
som made up the cast.
A clever dramatization of the trials of a young
couple in finding an apartment was depicted in "Love
Finds a Way." The characters were Ann Schulte,
Dennis Guess, Ada Mae Snider, Alfred Bach and Mary
"The Hummingbird Hiccupsf' hilariously set in
a doctor's office, was the final presentation by the
class. The cast was composed of Mara Lee Cotten,
Alice Martin, Keith Bess, Earl Boardman, Howard

This was the eleventh year of publication of the
Bulldog Barker, In 1936 when the year book was
discontinued, the Barker was given to the student
body to take its place.
The Bulldog Barker is a two-page inimeographed
paper. The journalism class collects the news, types
it, and makes the dummy sheet. The commercial class
cuts the stencil and mimeographs it. The journalism
class staples the pages together and delivers them to
the various rooms.
The paper was furnished free to high school and
junior high school students. The expense of publica-
tion is met entirely by the school fund. A large mail-
ing list was maintained. All former students in ser-
vice, in college, or out of town were sent the paper
The Barker was published weekly by the jour-
nalism class under the direction of Miss Uriel Haw.
Ruth Tidwell served as editor, assisted by the follow-
ing members of the class: janet Farrell, Lorene Horn-
back, Mary Lee Porter, jane Schillig, Billy Warren,
Howard Weekley and Barbara Williams.
It was the purpose of the Barker throughout the
years to give students news while it was still news:
to give the school a record of activities forming a
history of high school life, and to give the public
insight into the progress and attainments.
