V v-7 - u-quM . .WA :11 um: Sfandinga Unsurpassed Fort Smith Junior college is located in the stadium building of the high school. This building has, until the present time, served the purpose well; but it has failed to grow with the enrollment of JC. A new junior college will make JC a larger and better school. mcum School Boa rd Responsible for the direction of the J unior College is the school board, a group 01' community-minded citizens who meet at ltast once a month to determine administra- tion policies and action. Fort Smith has indeed been fortunate in the membership of its school board, for it is made up of citizhns who are leaders in their respective fields and in civic affairs. The graduating class of 1950 pledges itself to follow the board membersh example in improving educational facilities in the community. MEMBERS: UPPER rothruce H. Shaw, Sam D. Tressler, Dr. Thomas P. Foltz, Mrs. W. D. Powell. LOWER row- J. W. Ramsey, Chris Corbin, Raymond F. 011', president; J. Fred Patton, vice-president. Presidenti aru-mmr m n ?F t :2 .a e e ix J. W. RAMSEY Fort Smith is justly proud of the president of Junior College, for Mr. Ramsey is both an able administrator whose capabilities are well known in national educational circles and an outstanding figure in the community which the J unior College serves. Mr. Ramsey,s knowledge of educational trends and his philosophy of education have guided the establishment of a Junior College of recognized scholastic rating. This year With the initiation of the expansion program he has lent influence and effort to the securing of larger and more adequate Junior College facilities. DEAN Elmer Cook Mr. Cook is serving his first year as dean of Junior College. He is always willing to help the students in any way that he can, and has worked untiringly in his efforts to promote a new Junior College building, He has made every student his frisnd and we hope that he serves many more years as our JC leader.

For sometime it has been clearly evident that the J unior College needs a well-equipped building; but up till the beginning of this school year, nothing: definite was ever done about the matter. It fell to the lot of the student body of the 1949-50 session to take positive action. During the year a building fund was begun, looking forward to the ultimate provision for adequate building facilities for the College. These students may finish college before the work is finally completed; but they will always be remembered as the father of the new building program for the Fort Smith Junior College. 0K6ANlZATlONS- ' 1 R m xxx.xvt- - vshh LION'S ROAR STAFF This year hThe Lionhs Ran enlivened campus life with a Junior College news- paper for the first time since 1937.

Editor, Georgia Neely; Associate Editor, Dorothy Knight. ADVISORS The advisers have worked cooperatively and sincerely together with the staff to complete the yearbook. The staff wishes to say hthanks" to the faculty advisors for their assistance in printing the 1949-50 Numa. Advisors: Eliseo Sanchez, Hazel Presson and Neal Little The Junior College presented Thomas L. Thomas, famous baritone, in a concert, February 7. The students worked enthusiastically to make his presentation a success, ahd the proceeds from his concert were added to the JC building fund. This was the first time in the schoolts history that a well-known artist has been sponsored by Junior College. The above pictures were taken at a reception given at the home of Miss Lucille Speakman immediately following the concert. Va riety Show "Through the Years," the 1950 annual variety show, under the direction of Betty Hinton, was held this year, April 26 and 27. The performance, filled with JG talent, was one which will long: be remembered. . The successful show was another of the many student projects to raise proceeds for the Junior College building fund. gig .E::. GEES... wm". .l-nr "?'nbwt- 3:. BASKETBALL Basketball has been the outstanding sport in FSJC for many years. This year the Lions had a new coach, Jack Bell; and even though the team didnht come through with a string of Wins, they always came through fighting. Each individual play- er displayed a fine school spirit, and we can truth- fully say our team played every game with the greatest respect for real sportsmanship We will be minus som! players next year, but the freshmen can and will carry on for the JC Lions. Coach Jack Bell FIRST row-Bill Bacon, Buster Womack, Squeaky Smith, Coach Bell, Henry Papa, Mike Cowart, and Bob Lane. SECOND rothack Nig'h, Bob Oberdorsten, Dewey Lewis, Burton Elliot, Don Elliot, J im Smith, Shelby Breedlove, Marvin Blaylock, and Don Hampton. BILL BACON Bifl hails from MissouriuNeosho to be exact. Bill saw plenty of action during the past season. Since he is a freshman, JC hopes he will return next year. SHELBY BREEDLOVE This returned letterman is from the wide place in the road across the rivereVan Buren. Shelby hLou" is known not only for his ability, but his sportsmanship and team play twhen he stayed on his 11010. The Lions will miss Shelby next year. MARVIN BLAYLOCK Marvin, a local boy, played both center and for- ward for the Lions. His experience added to the team and the Lions needed more of his playing. BURTON ELLIOTT Burt, the youngest Elliott brother, is a spohomore. The Lions used Burtolfs height as an advantage. He is a capable player whom JC would like to keep ngxt year. DON ELLIOTT As the tallest man on the team, Don proved his worth at the center position. One of the regular five, he was always in the middle of things and proved himself a good ball player, whom we hate to lose. DON HAMPTON Don is also one of those puppyville enthnsiasts. He was a uhustler" the Lions hope will return next season. DEWEY LEWIS Dewey is another one of those Van Buren guys. He didnlt see too much action but was nevertheless a good sport and a spirit booster. As he is a fresh- man, he will probably extract splinters from our bench again next year. BOB LANE Bob, a freshman, has had seine bad breaks lsprains i'eallyi, but when he was not ailing, he was right in there with the Lions. Bob is from Fort Smith. JACKIE NIGH Jack had a remarkable way of playing basketball CD which everyone liked. This is his second year of basketball for JC. Jack is a Ietterman, whom the Lions hate to lose. BOB OBERDORSTEN Bob is one of those Greenwood plowboys who came through fine for the Lions this year. He saw a great deal of action this season, and his long range shots racked up quite a few points. HENRY PAPE LAWRENCE SMITH Another Van Burenite, Henry was one of the Squeak's experience, eye for the basket, and good regular five and his ability proved worth while to humor added to the team. Along; with this, he was the old Blue and White. Sonny is a letterman the one of the high scorers. J 0 could use anqthelg Lions hope. will return next year. Squeaky next year. JIM SMITH J im played a part of the season for the Lions and did a good job, but was kept out of most of the sea- son,s play because of a broken ankle. BUSTER WOMACK Red was always in there for the Lions. He is an- other Soph J C would like to keep next year. SALLY CRAM PTON Does anyone need a smile? SaIIy has them to spare. Her bright disposi- tion has shed some gaiety on every one. As a member of the Student Board, Sally was capable and practical. She lead cheers from the position of head cheerleader, and though she has put forth scads of energy, the supply seems inexhaustible. Sally is still a live-wire in JC. Outstanding v Students TOM CALDARERA Tom was a good Student Body President, and he is a good school citi- zen. He worked for the betterment at the college, and students responded to his genial guidance. Because of that united push, we can say that the first semester 1949-50 was one of the most successful that the Junior Cold Iege has had. Much credit goes to Tom. SUE DUNCAN Sue's untiring work on all the stu- dent board's projects this year would be hard to equal; and whenever any fun was in the making, she was al- ways found behind the scenes manu- facturing the good times. It will be a fortunate day for Junior College when another Sue is found, because she will mean energy, friendship, wit, and brilliance all tied up in one small package. JAMES CURRY James took a very active part in school activities. As president of seve- ral organizations he did a wonderful job. He has the ability and personali- ty to carry through all his plans to their best finish. The freshman showed that they knew this by electing him president of the freshman class. Jim doesn't worry-he gets the job done. . BETTY HINTON The girl with ideas and schemes which really work: As director of the Variety Show she did a good job. As a member of the Student Board she worked on all of the parties and inspir- ed many projects. We have in Betty 0 natural leader and we respect her capabilities. DORIS GRAHAM Doris has worked very hard this year and is to be Commended for her ability to get things done. She has a good personality and the obiltiy to Get along with everyone. She has to- ken part in many activities and has worked especially hard in journalism. In all she does you can be sure to find the best quality work from the best quality gal GEORGIA NEELY What characteristics do you ad- mire in people? Whatever they are Georgia probably fits the picture. As a student her standards are higheher scholastic record proves that. As a journalist you can look at the Numa eshe edited that. As a leader look at the positions she has held and look at the results of her guidance. And as a friend you can see that her kindly, sympathetic attitudes mixed with an air of mischief is a combination that makes people want to stay Georgia's friend. ' BILLIE LEHMAN Billie works in many worthwhile projects. She is one of the nice level- headed persons who is an asset to any organization. She was a capable Stu- dent Body officer and has worked faithfully on the Student Board, al- ways coming through with anything she undertakes. Billie is weIl-liked by the students for her friendly attitudes and kindness. SUE ELLA YOUNG That six point girl. Brain, brain, brain. Nice girl too, also works dili- gently in several organizations, and is secretary of the freshman class. When she uses those things to which the nerves must go for the formulating of witty remarks we all know that's Sue EIIo-a-no other like it! JOE SMITH Did anybody see Joe? He was very busy with being Mr. President of the Student Body, second semester. Did a good job, too. He works from the stu- dents, tor the students, with the stu- dentseremember the concession stand? Joe is a good friend to us all, and we like him because he is a good Joe who led us through the lost dull months of the yeor-but with Joe around moments were never dull.

Yes, the old pirate ship, the U.S.S.S. JC was sailing again. It was boarded by many famous people who wandered around to see the interesting sights. There were many familiar faces; for instance, the captain was none other than Joe E. Smith. He got his experience from operating the U.S.S.S. Concession Stand in Ye Olde Junior College. Chief cooks and hash slingers CD are Sue Duncan and Don McDaniel. Hot dogs are their specialty! The bartenders, John Oliver and Mark Fry, were kept busy mixing drinks. iNuff sed! Seems that the President of the United States, Tom Caldarera, didnlt use his special ship, ttThe Arkansas," but decided to travel on the U.S.S.S. JC. Incidentally, Tom plays ttArkansasli very well on the piano. Another famous celebrity enjoying the trip on this ship was the movie star, John Hallard. He is trying to forget Mary Lou Boas, famous pianist of the philhar- monic orchestra, and he was doing a pretty good job by keeping Cynthia Babcock, welL known model, from being lonely. Miles Shopfner, owner of the Shopfner Candy Company, and his private sec- retary, Bob Mason, kept the Elliott brothers, a couple of his distributors, busy passing out the candy bars to passengers. The two famous baseball players on the ship were Shelby Breedlove and Jimmy Smith, who kept in condition by playing shuffle board with Lola Watson and Billie Lehman, former Junior College students. Now they are exchange teachers. Ruby Quarry was telling Wilma Dolan, who is still shy, all the latest gossip. Clyde Gamble was making the trip to get ideas for his latest comic strip. He watched the antics Qf Rod NauckwKeep reading the funny paperseyou may see Rod. The sheriff on the ship was none other than George Wernette. The well-known big game hunter, Don Bandy, whose specialty is ducks, was giving Garfield McNabbRJohn Bracken, and Roy Wadsworth pointers on hunting. i George Taylor, boxer, was on board With his manager, Bill Rose. This pair is almost as well-known as J oe Palooka and Knobby Walsh! George Hardcastle was heard singing. I wondered who was his audience and I found it to be his press agent, Bett Hinton. Maybe he wants more publicityl Georgia Neely, gag writer for all famous comedians, and her colleague, Mari- lyn Sitz, were on board. It seems that if Marilyn responds to Georgials jokes they are bound to be good. tMarilyn also helps Georgia spellD Squeaky Smith was scheduled to be on the ship but later reports indicated that he was again attending Fort Smith J unior College and is president of the Soph- omore Class! Buster Womack, navigator of the ship, is beginning to get seasick. So "bon voyage" to all the passengers on the "Jolly Roger." Herets to many more and even happier traveling days!
