I. W. RAMSEY
As president of the lunior College, Mr. Ramsey has made thestudents and
faculty proud ot him because of his administrative and educational Capabilities.
Mr. Ramsey is an outstanding educator and Well-known citizen of Fort Smith
and the surrounding territory that the Junior College serves. The establishment
of a Iunior College of recognized scholastic rating is. due to the efforts of Mr.
Ramsey's knowledge of educational trends and his philosophy of education.
Now that the dream of a new IC has become a realization he will be Very
influential in helping the school attain even higher goals than ever-
Top row: Andrews, Beckman, Foltz. Bottom row: Orr, Shaw, Tressler.
A new incorporated school board was the result of action taken last fall
in preparing the college to move to the new location. 4
The school was fortunate to have such a fine group of upstandiifg citi-
zens serving on the board. These six men are all leaders in their respective
fields in, civics affairs.
The class of 1951 would like to thank the school board members for their
work on the new school.
Mr. Cook, serving his -second year as
Dean of the College, publicized the Iunior
College and the IC Building Fund with the
revival of the IC Lecture Series. He spoke
many times at places in his effort to get
public opinion behind the New Iunior Col-
lege movement. Definitely his Work did
not go unheeded, because by the end of
the year the college staff was preparing
to move to the new quarters. On behalf' of
the students, the Numa staff would like to
say, "Thanks for everything!"

Sometimes when things weren't going so Well, this situation arose. Not
many times did Bill have to use his "billy-club" on his staff, but you can see
that the staff didn't take him too seriously.
"Cheat minds run on thea same track" seems to be the case here. Notice
the smirks on the faces of the journalism students. Maybe they're all thinking
of the same joke.

The 1950-51 sophomore class was voted
the outstanding sophomore class of junior
colleges all over the U. S. at a closed meet-
ing of the sophomores, February 31, 1951.
One of the things that caused the class
to be so outstanding was its officers. First
semester officers Were: Barbara Cooper,
president: lames Burgess, vice president,
and Barbara Flinn, secretary. I
Barbara Cooper, besides being another
Patrick Henry, was, or maybe she is, a very
outstanding poetress. In payment for be-
tween forty-five and fifty poems submitted
to magazines, she received forty-five or fifty
rejection slips, a very good record indeed.

ing job of doing everything a vice president

years, Iames plans to succeed Clark Gable

Minute reader, Barbara Flinn, showed
that her greatest asset was being quiet, at
times. Barbara recently expressed her desire
to join the Air Force, and be a proverbial sec-
retary, that is if she can sit on Dell's knee.
The first semester officers led their bro-
ther inmates to a deafening Cquiet, fresh-
menj victory over the freshmen in the lec-
ture series ticket-selling Contest.
Second semester-got off to a roaring start
in the sophomore 'class as they again voted
their class the most outstanding sophomore
The sophomores played a very important
part in supplying Uncle Sam with suitable
specimens for his ever-increasing Air Force.
However, the man shortage wasn't acute
enough for the remaining male sophs to
benefit too much, in the way of getting a
gal. Beggars couldn't be choosers, though,
and later the "finicky females" broke down
and admitted that there was a man shortage.
Olivie Patton, up-and-cornng novelist, led
the sophomores for the second semester.
Rumors had it that Olivie had her ticket be-
fore finalsever started. Where is she going?
To Floridaj of course, that land of sand fleas
and sunshine-beg pardon--that land of
sand and sunshine. Olivie plans to fall in
love and write a nice long book while in
lames Worst accepted the position of
"veep" for second semester. but he was un-
able to fulfill any of his campaign promises,
because of the simple fact that he was one
of those anxious ones who prematurely join-
ed the Air Force.
After reading the minutes and having
them approved, secretary Wanda Raney
gave us a long account. of her life, but due
to lack of space and all that .... Wanda
plans to settle down before too long in a
little house on a hill with a special room
for all the kids with red hair. Being a six-
point student, almost, Wanda has all her
report cards framed just so she can show
