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 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
The graduating class of 1950 pledges itself to follow the board membersh example
in improving educational facilities in the community.

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.
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.

During the 1949-50 session of the Fort Smith Junior College, the student body
inaugurated an expansion program for the College which may well be remembered as an
historical' event in the history of the institution. 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.

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
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.
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.
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
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, 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.
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
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
Don is also one of those puppyville enthnsiasts.
He was a uhustler" the Lions hope will return next
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, 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
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 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

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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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!
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-

Your beloved upper-classmen,
The Sophs of 1950
The ship had docked. The time had come to go aboard! 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.
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
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
