s you review the images that this mirror of
, 1949-S0 brings before you, you will again
recall the thrill of those balmy fall days when you sat
in the football stadium and whtched the Bronchos run
down the field time after time for a touchdown. The
band marched smartly down the field between halves
then took their places on the sidelines to cheer the
team on. You will remember excitement of watching the
Central cage team dash down the court for a basket.
The track team, the baseball team, the boxing team and
the tennis team are all a picture of 1950's sports review.

Newana Winaims, Jo Arner,
lubs and club activities took up a great part of most of our time during this
' year at Central. Meetings, dances, parties, rush week, election of officers are
all reflected here. Committees with which we worked helping to make some big event?
of the club the biggest affair on the campus are all here in our 1950 mirror. These will
be a reminderto us as we look back in future years that more can be accomplished if
we all pull together.

We look to Central's future together, faculty,
students, and alumni. Our Board of Regents has
placed at our disposal an institution rich in the
educational heritage of the state. Here lies many
golden opportunities for fruitful and satisfying
Our college experience is usually our first newly
found independence. After high school graduation
our individual efforts to further our education
may be found in the opportunities at college level
for initiative, self-expression and larger intellecual
attainments. College trained people have great
responsibilities to society. They have accepted
four years of educational opportunity. How well
these same people meet the challenges, and face
the problems in a society highly complex socially,
religiously, economically and politically by lead-
ing and sharing in their solutions, is proof of a
sound investment by the state in its youth.
Someone has very appropriately defined higher
education as "that education which is expected

the pages of the beautiful Bronze Book. Those

scene, of this year, should serve as a basis for
many pleasant memories of the happy associations
one finds on the campus of Central State College.

liable Board ol' Reg nl.: for Higher ducation
All state owned institutions of higher learning in Ok-
lahoma, as well as all independently owned institutions
which apply for approval and are elected, are members
of the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education.
The System was created by constitutional amendment in
1941 under Article XIII-A of the Oklahoma Constitu-
tion. This amendment, together with the vitalizing
legislation enacted also in 1941, provided thc necessary
machinery for a coordinated system of higher education.
The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education
are by law vested with the powers of coordination for
the State System. Each institution has its own govern-
ing board for control and administration of its affairs.
Degrees recommended by each member institution are
granted through the State Regents. Educational prob-
lems of mutual concern to all the constituent institu-
tions are administered through the State Regents.
Included in the Oklahoma State System of Higher
Education are certain non-teaching agencies which are
in reality service agencies for the general public.
Among these are the University Hospitals, Oklahoma
Geological Survey, the Agricultural Extension Division,
and the Agricutural Experiment Station. Their services
are for citizens, business and industry in general.
Two main functions of the State Regents are the
allocation of funds and the adjustment of curriculum
problems in keeping with the function of each institu-
tion. The Governor, the Legislature and the people are
informed from time to time concerning the needs of
the colleges and the problems which arise in their ad-
The Regents are concerned with academic standards,
admission and graduation of students, budget alloca-
tions to, and functions of, each institution. It is a
policy of the Regents that each member institution
should maintain academic standards in compliance with
requirements of the regional accrediting agencies.

The State Board of Regents of Oklahoma Colleges
has the supervision, management and control of Central
State College, East Central State College, Northeastern
State College, Northwestern State College, Southeastern
State College and Southwestern Institute of Technol-
ogy. These institutions own more than 450 acres of
land at a book value of S469,240 with buildings and
equipment valued at more than S7,000,000. They have
a current annual income of approximately 553,500,000
of Gklahoma Coll ge
with an annual enrollment of 17,300 including the reg-
ular year, summer term, correspondence and extension
and employ a personnel staff of 575 people.
While these institutions are primarily liberal arts
colleges the principal purpose for their existence is for
the training of teachers for the public schools of Okla-
homa, and as such, trained a total of 871 people who
qualified for elementary certificates in 1948 and a
total of 719 for high school certificates. With the cur-
rent shortage of teachers, especially in the elementary
field, the outlook is exceedingly bright for these insti-
tutions to render an even greater service in the future
than they have in the past.

TO MY FRIENDS AT CENTRAL STATE COLLEGE
It is both an honor and a pleasure for me to have this
opportunity to extend greetings to the students, alumni,
and members of the faculty of Central State College.
I wish also to extend heartiest congratulations to the
members of the graduating class and to the staff of this
yearbook. Second to none, the effectiveness of our sys-
tem of public education is a condition, which will de-
termine and measure the future progress of Oklahoma.
Central State College is deserving of the highest com-
mendation for the contribution it has made, and is
making, to the cause of education. To students, who
are planning to enter the teaching profession, I have
this special word: Oklahoma is advancing steadily in
the recognition given its teachers. Your degrees are
investments in your own futures and in the future of
Oklahoma. As you enhance these degrees with teaching
experience, you will find that your communities and
your state are appreciative of your preparation and of

TO THE STUDENTS AND FACULTY OF CENTRAL STATE COLLEGE:
It is my wish to extend heartiest congratulations to
you for the work that has been clone in the year draw-
ing to a close. To the staff that has been responsible
for compiling this book, I wish to extend special con-
gratulations because I know you have spent many hours
in completing the task. It is a job well done.
I always obtain a great deal of pleasure in being as-
sociated with our institutions of higher learning be-
cause it is here that our future citizens are getting il
major portion of their training to better equip them-
selves to carry on our form of government. It is becom-
ing increasingly evident that you must have a college
education and be trained to take your place in life if
you hope to be successful in the competitive world.
It is my hope that many of the senior class of this
year will become teachers in our Oklahoma schools. It
is a noble calling and one in which much satisfaction
is gained. I have faith that the teaching profession will
soon achieve the recognition, both as to salary and pres-
tige, to which the teachers are entitled.

We wish to take this opportunity to express our grati-
tude to the members of Central State College's adminis-
tration and faculty for their endless devotion and in-
terest to the students and their cooperation in all so--
cial, intellectual and cultural phases of student life.
They have tirelessly guided us during this year through
the paths of industrial, civic and professional study,
and their wonderful cooperation in student activities
has won our heartiest appreciation. We shall never for-
get those who have had a part in guiding each of us on
toward our own individual goals.

The administrative secretaries are the people behind
the scenes who do a tremendous amount of Work with
very little recognition.
In the registry office are kept the complete academic
records of every student who has ever enrolled. This
office also handles the enrollment, change of schedule,
degree and certificate applications. In the vault of this
office are filed the records of more than 75,000 former
students and graduates who have attended Central
State college at some time since its founding in 1891.
Among the things that the veterans office handles
are G. E. D. tests for veterans who have not completed
highschool, veteran housing problems, and all of the
Work in connection with the eligibility and entitle-
ment of veterans and all records of veterans' accounts
with the book store and the Veterans Administration.

cords and grades, discipline problems, student housing
and student employment. A great deal of time is re--
quired to keep these records complete as they must be

Secretary to the president of Central is no small job.
It is a position where the duties are many and varied.
Because of her position, this person has a great public
relations responsibility, for often she is the only con-
tact many people may have with Central State college.
These secretaries in the finance office are responsible
for all of the money that comes into the college and
also all that goes out. This office must account for
every cent that is spent by Central State college. From
this office, too, comes all requisitions and claims. Every-
thing needed for any part of the institution comes
through this office. And, of course, this is where fees,
room and board, and incidentals are paid.
These people have many other duties in addition to
handling the state's money. They distribute mail to
the faculty and students, handle the mailing for the
entire college, and operate a lost and found department.
They also make change for anything from postage
stamps to cokes, cash checlts and just plain make change.

Agriculture is now the source of the largest annual
money income received from any one business in Ok-

'teachers should be qualified and prepared to teach
agriculture in those schools that wish to include that

that is possible in order Lo meet the growing demands

The demonstration school of Central State college
plays an important part in the institution's program.
One of the main functions of the school is to fit the
student for teaching in the public schools of this
state. Another function of equal importance is to
teach the pupil enrolled to become mentally, physi-
cally, and socially competent for meeting life's prob-
lems at whatever age level he finds himself. The
demonstration school in its organization and methods
conforms to the best present-day practices in the
public schools. Every effort is made to maintain
high standards of scholarship. The highschool is
fullv accredited in the North Central Association.
The administrative staff consists of two members,
the director and the principal. The director is the co-
ordinator between the college and the demonstration
school. He advises with the student teacher and di-
rects his training not only in observation of good
teaching but also in the actual teaching experience
under the competent supervisors of the school. He
confers with the administration of the college on any
problems concerning the school. He supervises the
classroom instruction, determines the policies to be
pursued, and with the aid of the principal makes
routine rules of administration.
The principal or the administrative head of the
demonstration school must meet the requirements
of the North Central Association of schools, that is,
has had at least two years of teaching experience and
possesses as a minimum a master,s degree from an in-
stitution of higher education qualified to offer grad-
uate work. His preparation in school administration
and supervision includes an appropriate distribution
of graduate Work covering those phases of the school

Real teaching situations analogous to public school
conditions are maintained for the training of teach-
ers. Lesson plans are carefully worked out by each
teacher and the lesson taught according to plan.
Teachers who complete this work are sent out equip-
ped with plans and methods which will be of in-
valuable assistance in their teaching experience.
In the demonstration school many worthwhile ac-
tivities outside the classroom serve to enrich the ex-
periences of the children. These activities must lend
themselves easily to the essential learning needs of
the child. They are used to stimulate the important
factors of interest and attention of the child when
engaged in the learning process. As a result of the
many group projects undertaken by the children,
their social cooperation is improved, the spirit of
give and take is encouraged, and leadership is de-
The students of the demonstration school have
access to the physical education facilities of the col-
lege and a year-round program of swimming and
general sports is followed for all grades. A juvenile
library is provided for the students of the demon-
stration school and the several thousand volumes
therein add greatly to the value and enjoyment of
the studies by the students.

administrators work which are professional in char-
acter, such secondary school administration, curricu-
lum making, the supervision of instruction, methods
of teaching, philosophy of education, history of edu-
cation, pupil activities, guidance, health and safety,
vocational education, personnel records and reports,
and school finance. Anyone who holds the title of
principal meets the forgoing requirements.
The director and the principal seek to stimulate
and to inspire the best of their co-workers, both
students and supervisors.
The demonstration school is a laboratory for re-
search and practice teaching, in a setting which ap-
proximates a regular public school situation. It con-
sists of an elementary school, junior high school and
a senior high school.
The teaching staff of the demonstration school is
carefully selected so that the students may have
the opportunity of observing the best methods of
teaching, The supervisors are chosen not only for
training and experience, but also for their ability
to correlate theories of procedure and psychology
with classroom management. Instructors in most of
the departments teach classes in the demonstration
school where student teachers have an opportunity to
observe and do practice teaching under the college

A knowledge of the past is essential to an understand-
ing of the present and to any intelligent planning for
the future. With this in mind Central offers classes
in history designed to acquaint the student with basic
facts in the development of civilization.
The basic course in government is designed to acquaint
the student with the history of the development of our
government. the character of its machinerv, and its
application in practice. Advance courses are Qiven to
develop further the more important oh-ises such as the
constitution and political parties. The coal constantly
kept in mind is to prepare the student for and to ursze
him to discharge his responsibilities as a citizen by ex-
ercising his franchise.

ciples. A thorough understanding of economic theory
and principles serves as a basis for the understanding of

Mathematics has held a large and almost unquestioned
place in the college curricula for many centuries. Math-
ematics is an exact science, and being such, it is the
simplest and clearest of all studies which deal with
thinking and reasoning. Generally mathematics deals
with two things, computation in the abstract, and the
application of these abstract laws of fundamental op-
erations to the solution of problems which includes the
reasoning process. i
Arithmetic, adding, subtracting, multiplying and di-
viding numbers, is sometimes referred to as the language
of numbers. But when these numbers become letters
and unknowns, it becomes algebra. In measuring dis-
tances, and boundries the theorems and axioms of
geometry are used.
Mathematics is an interesting challenging subject to
any student and there is not a walk of life that is not
vitally concerned with some phase of mathematics.
The commerce department serves the needs of several
groups of students. The majority of all students fall
into two main groups, those interested in preparation for
a teaching career in commerce, and those who are pre-
paring for business in general.
However, several other groups find their way into
the department. Students who are preparing for regular
office or clerical work or for administrative positions
find the office practice classes beneficial. Here they
learn to operate various types of office machines and
learn systems of filing.
Some students enter the classes in commerce because

Physics is the science which tells us the
"how" and the "why" of the world of non-
living objects. It tells us how a radio Works
or why a ball bounces, how a camera works
or what makes a steam engine run. It is the
science which helps us to understand and
control the forces of nature such as the
waterfall or electricity.
Its study reveals new and hidden forces
which we may put to practical everyday
uses which may bring us pleasure, health,
or security. It seeks its subject matter not
only in the common world of everyday
things but also in the invisible world of
atoms and electrons and even as far as the
distant stars, billions of light years away.

Biology is the science which studies liv-
ing things and everything about them. Bi-
ology is one of the oldest sciences. It is us-
ually divided into two main parts, zoology,
the study of animal, and botany, the study
While biology is usually considered as sep-
arate from the other sciences which study
nonliving matter, there are methods com-
mon to other sciences that are sometimes
applied to biology. For example, biochem-
istry and biophysics are fields in which the
methods of chemistry and physics are used
to study the activities of living beings.

Out of the test tube of the chem-
ist has come a wealth of beautiful,
useful, merciful, products that
would have not been possible ex-
cept for the science of chemistry.
Scientific medicines help fight di-
seases, modern fertilizers turn use--
less land into unlimited productiv-
ity, fast automobiles in bright col-
ors flash along smooth well-built
roads, giant buildings with metal
ribs reach dizzily into the sky, air-
ships braced with metal stronger
than steel and lighter than wood
glide through the air. Everywhere
there is a richness to the world
made possible largely by chemistry.
A library derives its objectives from the
institution of which it is a part. Since
changes in educational theory affect the
form, content, and method of college edu-
cation there must be a changing college ii-
A very important emphasis in the new
educational theory is the concept of Whole-
ness or integration of the individual as a
personality. For the library this means ren-
dering highly individualized service such
as reading guidance in the broadest senseg
stimulating interest in books and reading,
helping establish good reading habits, aiding
in the use of library tools and rnaterialsg
and in some institutions even in helping
students overcome reading difficulties.

out too much stress being placed on
any one thing.

year more essential to the elevation
and invigoration of persons striving

class affects the students' attitudes
toward life and gives them an indes-

PHY 'ICAL EDUFATIO
The department of physical education for women
concentrates its attention on self-expression in the Var-
ious aspects of physical education. The program is de-
signed for the individual's maximum development, wel-
fare, proficiency, and pleasure. It makes the 1I1OSt of
recreation and leisure time skills. As a major subject
leading to a career, the courses offered here give train-
ing that will enable the prospective teacher to organize
and direct a worthwhile program. The intramural and
team sports engaged in here achieve maximum benefits
for the participants. The recreational activities fix a
foundation for a lifetime of physical fitness and make
recreation an art in the use of leisure time.
The department of physical education for men special-
izcs in training athletic coaches and physical education
instructors. In addition to this important function the
department operates for the purpose of health develop-
ment and to provide recreation.
It is possible for both athletes and non athletes to
major in physical education. The men's department now
has a large number of majors, many of them ex-service-
men who became interested in the work while in the
Central State college offers a well-rounded athletic
program. Varsity teams are trained in football, basket-
ball, track, baseball, tennis and boxing. Central letter-
men wearing the bronze "Cu are to be found through-
out Oklahoma and the nation coaching highschool and
college athletic teams.
Outstanding features of the physical education plant
at Central are Wantland hall and its basketball courts
and swimming pool, Central stadium with the football
field and cinder track, and the tennis courts by Thatch-

Central State college's English department main-
tains a two-fold purpose: First, the department strives
to aid students in their efforts to attain accuracy and
efficiency in their oral and written communications.
NVith this end in mind, all regularly enrolled students
are required to pass a year of English composition, and
classes in the history of the English language and in
English grammar are offered for the purpose of sup-
plementing the composition courses.
The second general aim of this department is to help
students in acquiring a knowledge and appreciation of
the literary masterpieces of the world. Emphasis is
placed upon the literature of the United States and
England. Courses varying in content from the general
literary survey course to the specialized study of an in-
dividual poet or prose writer are offered to help stu-
dents acquire a desirable literary background. Further
aids to appreciation are afforded in such classes as
mythology, literary criticism and world drama.
Courses in creative writin are offered b the En lish
g Y 8
department for the benefit of those students who are
interested in entering any phase of the literary world.
Short story, novel and essay courses comprise an im-
portant part of the department's curriculum.
It will be noted that the dual aim of this department
is closely related to the dual purpose of education: vo-
cational attainment and cultural background. To im-
plement these courses in the English department, the
college maintains a staff of well-trained instructors.

Since Central State college is primarily a
teachers' college, the education department
automatically becomes one of the most im-
portant departments in the curriculum. The
basic aim of the department is to guide the
development of prospective teachers for the
schools of Oklahoma and improve the tech-
nique of those who have had some experience
in the schools.
A good teacher is more than a good teach-
er, he isa good citizen possessing a sound
philosophy, tolerant attitude, and the high-
est standards of conduct. He not only seeks
knowledge but also has a zeal to transmit
it to others. He either has or acquires the
skill to stimulate life through learning. He
loves the United States, her principles of
freedom and equality and the respect she
holds for the rights of the individual against
the totalitarian state. The department com-
mits itself to teaching and guiding growth
along the general principles herein stated.
Central State college maintains a complex
system of teacher training. Each prospective
teacher gets a chance to practice teach in the
training school which the college maintains
on the campus. The training school consists
of all grades from kindergarten through the
senior year in highschool, and each student
teacher has the opportunity to teach a class
in his major subject.
Besides the actual training in teaching,
Central maintains a curriculum of theory
courses and observation classes for the bene-
fit of the future teacher. A large group of
competent instructors are maintained by
the college for the benefit of ,those who
are preparing themselves to be the leaders of
The college also maintains a placement
bureau to help its graduates obtain jobs in
their respective fields. An ever-increasing
enrollment in education courses indicates
renewed faith in the improved attitude of
the public toward those who serve in the

Our mirror of the school year of 1949-50
reflects vividly the memorable days of the
year. These are the images that will linger
with us when those things that we learn in
classes become vague shadows in the back-
grounds of our minds. The day of enrollment
with its long linesg the day the Central eleven
won the game that sewed up the conference
'titleg the inauguration of our fifteenth presi-
dent, homecoming-the day when past and
present meetg the day of final reckoning when
we discovered that our grades were not quite
so bad as we had expected, then came the
most memorable day of all for some of us,
when we marched proudly, but with lumps in
our throats, down the aisle in Mitchell hall
to receive the diploma that indicated that our
days at Central had at last come to an end.

September--that glorious month of the year when stu-
dents come pouring back to the campus, moving vans
in hand, to begin a new year of studies, fun and cam-
Greeting the old student are familiar faces, familiar
greetings, for the new student-welcomes, informal
rush parties leading into a week of formal rushing, those
first days of orientation. For all there are long lines
of registration and enrolment followed by the all-school
mixer held annually in honor of the freshmen.
The Triumvirate social club opened official rush
with a dinner at the Murdaugh private dining room
which was followed by a party in Royce's Mural room.
Members of the Shakespeare social club entertained
prospective pledges with a luncheon at the home of Mrs.
Nash, sponsored by the Alumni organization. That ev-
ening club members entertained with a shirt and jeans
party at the Risener Cabin at Lake Hiawassee.
Tau Theta Kappa social club members entertained
pledges with a round of parties.
Concluding rush week, Criterion social club mem-
bers "rushed" pledges at an informal dessert Sunday
evening at the home of'Mary Irwin Baker. Alumni
members of the club honored pledges Sunday morning
with a breakfast at Royce's cafe.
On Monday following rush ' week, pledges selected
clubs to which they had been given bids at "Bid' House",
ending another September's rush activities.
Next event on the social calendar on the campus
was the president's annual formal reception for stu-
dents, this time honoring Central's new fifteenth presi-
dent, Dr. W. Max Chambers.
Class and departmental organizations started the sec-
ond week with organizational meetings and elections of
officers, get-acquainted sessions and parties.
Men's social clubs on the campus announced pledges
to their clubs and dates for "pledge week", week of
hazing for prospective members.
Thursday evenings dances in the Murdaugh hall din-
ing room were again instituted by Student council
members. The weekly dances are an annual function of
the council. Eleven cheerleaders, were chosen with the
council members as judges. '
Third week of school-a flourish of formals, candles,
flowers and pledge pins. This is the week of formal
pledgeship services, held by the social clubs. Pledges
beam as they attend classes through the week with their
newly acquired gleaming gold pins, which replace the
ribboned club colors, worn previous to pledgeship.
The chapel, which contains 14 stained glass windows
made by Central students, had been dedicated in July.
Daily noon-day services through out the week were
scheduled and held by the various religious leaders of
Edmond and Oklahoma City. These services continued
throughout every day of the school year.
Murdaugh and Thatcher halls selected their officer
slate for the first semester. Murdaugh girls also held
their get-cquainted session for all girls and orientation
of Murdaugh rules for freshmen-followed, of course,
Another new feature-the Bronze Book opens the
queen section to all girls on the campus. Girls entered
by submitting a "glamour" picture of themselves. The
homecoming queen was to be selected by popular vote.
Womens Recreational council started yearly activities
off in appropriate style-a hike fwiener roast reward at
destinationj. Members of the Central chorus also en-
tertained with a Wiener roast at the home of their spon-
The second month of the school arrived quite sud-
denly. October-the month of brisk autumn days,
football weather and thoughts of winter. Plans for
homecoming, October 22, had been made and com-
mittees were busy at work, clubs making plans for
their annual festivities and alumni teas.
Press club members planned their annual confab at
Oklahoma A SL M-the Oklahoma Senior College Press
Almost equalling plans and preparation for Home-
coming events, were those for an all-school carnival
'to be initiated for the first time in several years. The
carnival, October 18, featured everything from penny
pitching, bingo, fortune telling, fashion shows, mins-
trels to can-can dancers, bathing beauties, and selection
of the 1949 Homecoming queen, Miss Roberta Thrash-
er, freshman, of Sapulpa.
Members of the Orchesis group, modern dance club
at Central, were busy at work "creating" for their
Christmas recital. Slogan of the group-"Oh, my aching
Representatives of the YM-YWCA organizations at-
tended a sectional council meeting at Oklahoma City.
Historical society members attended a International
Relations Forum at Oklahoma City university.
Industrious signs and bruised knees were common
'characteristics of "the Murdaugh girl" during October.
Girls were at Work refinishing furniture for an open
house, first one held since pre-War days. Interiors of
the rooms were also being re-painted for the event.
Happy day fOctober 145-a holiday for students
because of the Oklahoma Educational association con-
vention at Oklahoma City.
The history department and Historical society pre-
sented an assembly program commemorating United
Nations clay. Music students started preparation for
the third annual Intercollegiate band meet at Central.
Honor students at Central, those with a B plus av-
erage were given recognition by the campus's honorary
scholastic fraternity, Alpha Phi Sigma, by invitations
for membership in the organization. Freshmen students
who were valedictorians or salutatorizns in highschool
were also offered membership.
The odd little hats, jingling bells, pajama clad males
and numerous "out of the ordinary" incidents were
merely activities of Freshman week, sponsored, naturally,
by upperclassmen. Other features of the week included
paying homage to upper class students, wearing designat-
ed costumes each day, and forming a snakeline and sit-
ting together as a cheering section, preceeding and
during the Broncho football game, concluding the week.
Homecoming activities were at a feverish height.
Float preparation, social club receptions for alumni,
homecoming open houses and exhibits, selection of the
Homecoming queen-and the most unique-a wager
of the blond head of hair of the president of the Arena
club against a head of hair of one of Southwestern
State college's social club presidents. fGeorge Palmer,
Arena prexy "clipped" Southwestern's Social club prexy
as generously as the Broncs clipped the Bulldogs, 37-132.
A crowd of 4500 homccomers saw the Broncs defeat
Southwestern and the halftime Coronation of Miss
Thrasher as 1949 Homecoming royalty. Her attendants
were runners-up Mary Alice Crews, Chandler, Mary Lee
Jinks, Rush Springs, Mildred Farabough, Narding and
Jo Arner, Duncan. Parade Winning floats-Arena, Sen-
ate and Criterion-circled the field at the half.

At last-commencement month. The month of May
is characteristic of graduation fervor. All upperclass-
men find themselves caught up in the interest and ac-
tivities of graduation. Receptions, Baccalaureate and
Commencement and all the connotations connected with
these words are almost entirely the whole of May. Of
course, final examinations inevitably are connected with
the last month of any semester.
Henry L. Scott, noted pianist, presented a concert
at the Mitchell hall auditorium, May 2. This concert
was the last in the series of lyceum programs sponsored
at Central during the school year.
On May 2, the Edmond Chapter of the American
Association of University YVomen, honored senior girls
at a reception in the Murdaugh hall living room. This
affair is an annual function of the AAUW.
Events on the May social calendar followed in "rapid
fire" order. One of the main functions during the month
was the annual Mother's Day held on the campus. Moth-
ers of Central's dormitory residents were entertained
at affairs throughout the day. Some of the events in-
clude the annual breakfast, Mother's reception at the
respective dormitories, attending church, the annual
Mother's day luncheon and a program at Mitchell hall
concluding formal events of the day. Informal visitation
of rooms in the dorms by Mothers was one of the many
informal functions of the day. A
The annual awards assembly came at last. The as-
sembly-the best attended of any during the year-
featured awards of all the school honors, AAUW hon-
ors, lettermen and letterwomen and the various social,
departmental honorary clubs and scholarships.
One of the surest signs that graduation is upon the
students, is the annual junior-senior reception, honor-
ing members of the senior class. Juniors, naturally, are
the hosts for the occasion.
May 21-a beautiful Sunday afternoon, but more
than that-Baccalaureate. Administration, faculty and
students, resplendent in robes, mortar boards, formed
the colorful procession. Seniors completed the first of
two marches on the final road to completion of their
Spring convocation, the day representing achieve-
ment of the student's goal, was held Thursday, May 25.
The graduate remembers in fleeting glimpses his first
days in college, when he looked at the far-off goll of a
bachelor's degree. Then the senior sees a multitude of
freshman faces, very similar to his own four years pre-
vious, and he sees the symbolic progression of education.

The Central Bronchos enjoyed their most successful
football season since the war, winning the Oklahoma
Collegiate Conference championship. The record for
the season was 7 Won and 2 lost. Pre-season predictions
figured the Bronchs no higher than 3rd place. No games
were lost in the conference.
Four Broncho players were selected by a vote of the
coaches for the All-Conference team. George Burger,
full back, W. C. Carmichael, end, Tommy Steigleder,
Quarter backg and Mel Rosenblum, guard and Captain
of the all-conference group were all outstanding plav-
ers. LeRoy Henderson, freshman half back from Oilton
was also outstanding. Henderson climaxed his great sea-
son as a ball carrier by running back a kick off 100
yards in the last game of the season against Panhandle
A 8l M College.
Contributing to the success of the football team was
a large squad of men with a real desire to play football.
More than S0 practiced regularly throughout the sea-
son. There were 33 lettermen. Rex Martin was elected
by the members of the squad as "Honorary Captain of

superior ball. The fighting Broncs soon cooled them down, and Louisiana was un-
able to generate another attack.

40-yard play for the Dem.on's one and only touchdown of the game, with Davis
making the conversion which so unhappily beat the Broncs.

over the third touch-down from the 2-yard line. A few minutes later, Walls, who
played his best game of the season, intercepted a Northeastern

Truman Wester, were the boys carrying the tennis
colors for Central State.
The Bronchos lost their first and second games
respectively to O.U. 6-O, and A Sc M 6-0. The
third game was a heart-breakcrg after defeating
Northwestern to the tune of 6-0, Central had to

player. The Bronchos Went on to tame the East
Central Tigers 4-2, Southeastern S-1, O.B.U. 5-1,
but lost the next two to the Oklahoma Aggies

ment Chuck Avera took the collegiate singles, and

The Central State Bronchos finished third in
the Oklahoma Collegiate Conference after reign-
ing baseball kings for two consecutive years. The
Bronchos finished behind Southwestern and East
Central. The reason for the Bronchos' decline was
due to the team being hit-hard by graduation.
Tom Vandemeer, star second baseman, led the
team in hitting by boasting an average of .335.
The highlight of the season came with probably
one of the best pitching duels in the state between
Bob Henry of Southwestern, who is now affiliated
with the Pittsburg Pirates, and Art Righetti of
Central State. Bob Henry pitched' a no-hit, no-
run ball game, while Art Righetti limited the
Southwestern Bulldogs to two hits. Southwestern
finally came through to win 1-0 on an unearned

CENTRAL'S ATHLETIC TRADITIONS
Cliff R. Otto, Faculty Athletic Representative
There are numerous students, faculty mem-
bers, and former students of Central State College
who have never taken the time to familiarize
themselves with the purposes and traditions of the
Broncho athletic program.
Of the one hundred championships in all sports
that have been awarded by the Oklahoma Collegi-
ate Conference during its present organization,
Central has tied for five of them and has won
forty-one of them. Being in the championship
class forty-six times is no mean accomplishment,
considering that there are eight schools represent-
ed in the conference. The Broncs have won almost
four times their proportionate share of the cham-
The conference was dormant during the war
years from 1942 to 1945.
In football Central tied for the championship
in the years 1935 and 1948. The Broncs won the
championships during the years 1929, 1931, 1934,
1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1941, and 1949.
The tennis trophy has come to Central in the
yCaI'S1930,1931, 1935, 1936, 1937,1938, 1939,
1940, 1941, 1946, and 1948. Central tied for
first in 1949.
The wrestling championship was won by Cen-
tral during the years of 1929, 1931, 1932, 1935,
The Broncs have succeeded in winning only
two basketball championships and tieing for one.
The wins were in the years 1937 and 1939. The
tie came in 1938. However, it is almost entirely
unknown for Central to field a team in any sport
that does not finish in the first division.
Central won track and field championships
during the years of1930,1931,1932,1933,1934,
1935, 1936, 1937, 1938, and has not been able
to do better than second place since that time.
The Broncs have brought home the baseball
trophy during the years 1936, 1937, 1939, 1947,
and 1948. They played for a tie in 1929.
Of the four team golf championships awarded,
Central has not been able to win the first place.
This will give the 1950 team something to ac-
Central is the only member of the conference
that year after year fields teams in all sports in
which the conference recognizes championships.
Our strength has been greatly due to the fact
'that we are operating an athletic program.
Central's football teams down through the
years have defeated teams representing Baylor
University, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma
A 86 M College, University of Tulsa, and Iowa
State College. The fact that the Broncs have de-
feated teams representing institutions of the class
of those mentioned above makes it difficult for
Central to schedule games outside the Oklahoma
Central introduced wrestling into the Oklaho-
ma Collegiate Conference and continued the sport
until almost all of the other schools had discon-
tinued it and schedule-making became almost im-
Two Central wrestlers, Orion Stuteville and
Ray Clemons, went to Europe with United States
Olympic teams. The Broncs have produced nu-
merous National Intercollegiate and National
Amateur Athletic Union winners. Bryan Watkins
placed second in the National Intercollegiate.
Emil Schellsted won a second place in the Na-
tional. Morey Villa Real won a second place in the
National. Ray Clemons won a first in the National
and a second in the National A.A.U. Glen King
placed second in the National A.A.U. Tommy
Tomlinson won a first in the National A.A.U. and
a second in the National Intercollegiate.
In 1936 Central sent five men to the finals of
the Olympic tryouts. They were Ted Anderson,
Eugene Smith, Gerald Barnett, Doak Stowe, and
Of the fifteen records for the Oklahoma Inter-
collegiate Track and Field meet, Central holds
six of them. These are Horace Peden in the mile,
Elmer McLane in the two mile, Warren Car-
michael in the high hurdles, Jess Plumee in the
low hurdles, George Taylor in the pole vault, and
Denver Watts in the shot put. This means that
Central holds more than twice her share of these
At one time one of Central's track athletes,
Frank Shaw, was the fifth ranking track and
field athlete in the United States. I-Ie won this
distinction by placing fifth in the decathlon
events in the Nationa Intercollegiate Track and
Field Meet. Another track athlete, Glen Dawson,
was nosed out in the Olympic finals in the
10,000 meter run.
Such accomplishments as have been mentioned
have come about in spite of the fact that Central
College does not high pressure it's athletic pro-
gram. The athletic department has always operat-
ed on a modest budget and has never been in debt.
This institution demonstrates the fact that a small
college does not need to bankrupt itself in order
to maintain a high class athletic program.
Central has a fine athletic plant that is free
of debt. In fact, no indebtedness has ever been
incurred for the athletic plant, except the light-
ing. That account was soon cleared up.
Central sends the largest number of coaches
into Oklahoma high schools of any institution in
the state. That has been going on for many years.
The man who is going out to coach needs to
know more than one sport. Therfeore, the reason
for the complete sports program.
Down through the years Central has had the
finest sports attitude of any small college in this
section of the country. We do not become overly
excited when we win. We do not become overly
depressed when we lose. The teams and the stu-
dent body take wins and losses in their stride. All
anyone asks of the athletes is that they lay down
a good try. When they have done that, they are
not subject to any person's criticism. We need
to lose once in a while to keep us humble. If we
won all of the time, we probably would become
Naturally, there have been times when we have
taken some serious reversals. All athletic teams do
that sooner or later. However, Central College
does not discharge coaches for failing to win
games. Our coaching staff has enjoyed a high
degree of stability.

The physical education department for women has one major
aim: The betterment of the pupil. The department is interested
not only in the physical welfare, but also in the educational,
recreational, and aesthic student needs. With these balanced
objectives in mind, the curriculum is selected to provide satis-
factory experiences. The department is also vitally interested
in professional training for those women interested in teaching
physical education and recreation.
The demonstration school provides its students with well train-
ed instructors and competent supervision, and also offers an op-
portunity for students majoring in physical education to observe
continually and to be trained in the art of teaching.
The department possesses more than adequate facilities, play-
ing fields, tennis courts, duplex gymnasium, swimming pool, lec-
ture rooms, recreational club-rooms, and so on. The year's cur-
riculum includes swimming, archery, badminton, tennis, volley
ball, soft ball, basketball, field hockey, tenniquoits, modern,

The Orchesis group is a dance club composed
of students interested in modern dance. The dance
gives way to creative participation by students.
The dancer gains poise, expression and outlet for
emotions, and satisfaction from his creative work.
The group holds numerous events during the
school year. Members of the group are organized
as a regular club. They have sponsored wiener
roasts, hamburger frys and informal coffees.
Orchesis dancers participated in the all-school
carnival this year with a can-can dance group.
Members sponsored a Masquerade ball at which
they presented several modern dance numbers
during the floor show.
"Praise the Lord in Song and Dance" was the
theme of the group's Christmas program which
they presented in collaboration with the Central
Acappella choir. Oklahoma university's Orchesis
group were guest participants on the program.
The Central group also participated in Dance
Day program at Oklahoma A and M college. The
dancers took part in the master class, and pre-
sented an individual part of the program. Miss
Martha Graham, noted modern dance artist, and
her troup, presented a dance concert that evening.
The Spring Recital was held April 13 at Mit-
chell Hall. The program included jitterbugging,
exhibition ball room dancing, tap dancing, and
square dancing done by the demonstration school
students and the members of the square dance
club, as well as modern dance.
Featured on the program was "Joy To The
World" a solo by Mary Lou Carpenter, and "Chop'
Sticks", both repeat preformances from earlier
concerts. A color suite was built around red, yel-
low, green, blue, and purple showing the qualities
of each color. The second suite was based on
"Theme With Variations", an original composi-
tion by Donald Murphy. In this were dances of
Russian, Oriental, Spanish, and American themes.

One of the scrappiest games in the department
is tenniquoits. This is played with a doughnut
shaped rubber ring which is thrown back and
forth over the net. The idea of the game is to
toss the ring where the members of the other team
can not reach it. The ring must be caught and
returned in the same movement.
To play the game skillfully, one must have skill-

Cool, crisp, fall days mean field hockey to the
sports class-every day the teams could be seen
shooting roll-ins and bullying, carrying the goals
on and off the field, running laps around the
track, and with Saturday morning practice and
extra practice whenever a group of girls got to-
gether, the field hockey varsity won the consola-
tion championship at the field hockey sports day,
held at Oklahoma College for Women, at Chicka-
sha, November 19.
The team, made up of fifteen girls chosen by
popular vote, devoted much of their leisure time
to learning the game, rule book and all.
The sports class engaged in many fierce class
period battles with the freshmen and juniors pit-
ted against the sophomores and seniors-with the
latter emerging as the victors after three exciting
and fast games.
To play field hockey well requires much speed,
stamnia, knowledge of the game, and good sports-
manship. Our girls had this and much more, as
the varsity aptly proved by doing so well at the
There is every reason to believe that hockey
is of Greek origin, although the only evidences of
that fact today are the figures of "hockey play-
ers" in old Greek friezes. Some writers prefer to
consider "hurley", an old Irish game, the first
reference of which is found in the will of the
Irish king Cathair Mor in 148 A.D. In 1885
Women took up the sport with the formation of
teams in the women's colleges of Oxford and
Cambridge. From that moment on hockey has
grown increasingly popular with Women of all
the countries. In 1900, field hockey was intro-
duced to the women of the United States by Miss

Hockey has taken great strides forward since
the days when the rules stated that "no player
shall wear hat-pins or sailor or other hard-brimmed
hat". And players need no longer be concerned
about that "one unforgivable sin of a skirt which
dips at the back". Hockey has kept abreast of the
times both as to rules and as to costume, and its
ever increasing popularity proves that it is winning
the place in the hearts of American women that
English women have long accorded it.

A game which has held thousands enthralled
for some twenty years has captured the sports
class, for in playing volley ball the girls have im-
proved their skills in other sports, and have be-
come experts in this game.
A wintertime sport, volley ball provides exer-
cise and excitement with the hard serves, sharp
spikes, and set-ups. Shots are made under-hand,
over-hand-and sometimes from the floor, for
every thing is forgotten but winning the game.
Intra-mural tournaments are held and the var-
sity of fifteen girls is chosen from the outstanding
players on the various class teams.

and many fast and furious games have been play-
ed providing the spectators with laughs and see-
ing excellent ball playing. The fast playing, quick
thinking, and agility needed for this game have
made it most popular on the Tuesday Play night
sessions with every team out to win.
From the fourth grade to the college seniors-
they all play volley ball-and enjoy it!
Volley ball was originated by Mr. William G.
Morgan at the Holyoke, Massachusetts Young
Men's Christian Association in 1895. In his search
to find a sport requiring sufficient activity to be
interesting, yet not as strenuous as basketball,
Mr. Morgan devised the game of volley ball.
The original rules seem to have permitted a
player to carry the ball by bouncing it, provided
that it was not caught. Within a few years this
rule was eliminated, and few changes have been
With the impetus given the game through
Y.M.C.A. promotion the growth in popularity was
rapid. It was used extensively in recreation pro-
grams throughout World Wars I and II, and
hundreds of leagues were organized.
In 1924-25, separate rules for women were pub-
lished in the Cfficial Volley Ball Rules Book. It
has been demonstrated by wide usage that volley
ball is a good game for women as well as men.
Volley ball is now played extensively by girls
and women from elementary through college years,
and in adult leagues. It has been recognized as
an ideal game for intramural competition in high
school and college.

Basketball is really Central's game-for our
varsity teams have won the honorary state cham-
pionships since 1946. And 1950 brought in a new
bunch of potential stars to strengthen our al-
ready powerful team.
Basketball Sports day was held at Oklahoma
Baptist University, at Shawnee, February 18. The
team fought their way to the finals by beating
the teams of Oklahoma University and Southeast-
ern State. Oklahoma A SL M Won the tournament
by stopping the varsity 33-32, in a well played

Girls, and Independents, is held each spring. This
allows each girl in school to participate in this
active game and help her team win the title of
"Champion of the Campusn. For the last two
years, the Independent team has walked away
with the lionors.
Basketball is the result of an experiment by Dr.
Naismith to develop an indoor game to fill in
the seasons between football and baseball. When
originated by Dr. Naismith in 1892, the game
was played with nine to fifty players on a side,
peach baskets served as goals, and a football was
used for the ball.
The value of the game for girls was soon recog-
nized and in 1899 the women's rules were formu-
lated. The first Basketball Guide, edited by Miss
Senda Berenson, was published in 1901. The rules
have been revised, from year to year, and modifi-
cations introduced to protect the health and safety
of the players.
The first rules committee of women adopted
'the three-division court, eliminated snatching
and batting of the ball as too roughg restricted
the dribble to three bounces, ruled a foul for
holding the ball more than three secondsg entered
a plea for the elimination of star playing, and
urged the development of team play.
After being penned in for the winter, the girls
really go for softball and when the warm days roll
around, it is sheer delight to step up to home
plate and sock the ball right down the third
base line. The game is very popular for many of
our girls play on league teams and need the
practice of organized and supervised ball play-
The varsity is composed of many highly skilled
ball players who enjoy all phases of competitive
play. All the girls in class play with the same spirit
of intensity, and of course, with the hope of hit-
ting that old home run to win the game of the

out, but then another day brings another game,
and the old familiar cry of "batter up" will ring
out over the campus.
Ball throwing as a sport has been practiced since
the time of the Greeks. Softball, like many of
the highly technical sports which we enjoy today,
developed from games of early origin.
Baseball, the parent of softball, has been of-
ficially declared to be the invention of Colonel
Abner Doubleday, who devised the diagram of
bases and positions in 1839. The game of soft-
ball has no official inventor. It has grown from

a group of games, variously known as kitten
ball, playground ball, diamond ball, indoor base-
ball and others. A committee of men meeting at
the National Recreation Congress in 1923, pub-
lished Playground rules which helped to stand-
ardize the game. But it was not until 1932, that
the name "softball" was officially adopted.
Women played baseball for years, using the
playground, indoor, and professional rules. In
1926, Miss Gladys Palmer compiled outdoor rules
for women. The official game for Women at the
present time is softball with rules standardized
by a joint committee of men and women.

The most mild or the most strenuous game of
the department is badminton. It is a fast game
which requires wrist manipulation and a whip
on each shot to place the birdie. To play skill-
fully means that one must cover the entire court
quickly and gracefully, and employ the com-
bination of skills of all sports.
Our varsity members entered the state meet
with Ladell Shofner and Lucille Mills placing
second in the consolation finals. Individual Sports
day at Central brought competitive play with
other college women from the state colleges.

This is another mixed-sport which holds at-

win the game.
Badminton, which is derived from Battledore
and Shuttlecock and the game, poona, came to us
from England as did many of our favorite sports.
However, the popularity of badminton in the
United States has been latent until recent years
when the interest in "carry-overv sports develop-
ed great impetus due to increased leisure time
and the desire for co-recreational activities.
There are more specific reasons for this too:
The game may be played either indoors or outg
the equipment is comparatively inexpensiveg and
only two to four players are needed. Even be-
ginners gain satisfaction and fun from the start.
It is easier to make progress in badminton than
in any sport of the ball and bat type. This is
largely due to the light weight of the equipment,
the size of the court, and the fact that less time
and energy are expended in "chasing the ball".

Centralls single tennis championship. Ladell Shof-
ner teamed with Wesine to win the doubles in a
close match against Marilyn Pugh, a newcomer to
Central, and Pat Cornwell.
February 16, the class saw Pancho Gonzales
and Jack Kramer play an exhibition match which
pitted practice and training against excellent
skill. Frank Parker and Pancho Segura teamed to
battle against the stars to provide a thrilling end
for a perfect day.
Miss Alice Marble graced our courts March 7,
to hold a master clinic to show the varsity mem-
bers the techniques which helped her win the
title of the world's best tennis player.
The origin of the name tennis is quite obscure,
but it seems to come from the French "Tenez",
meaning "take it", "play" and "ready". Good
authorities find an ancient derivation of the game
in Egypt, Persia, and among the Arabs before
Charlemagne. In 1300 A.D. it was known as
LaBande. It was played in a crude form in the
moats of castles. Before a racquet was used the
player used gloves for protection and then for
greater protection, cords were wrapped around the
gloves. Finally, in order to obtain a longer reach,
a racquet was made with a short handled paddle
strung diagonally. The first balls were leather and
stuffed with hair.
Tennis was brought to the U. S. in the 1870's

Cement, asphalt or clay.
The essentials which each girl must have are
a sense of movement which includes rhythm
and balance, strength of stroke and the ability
to put the ball where it should go at the right
time, which requires fast work. All this takes
practice and unlimited patience. The player who
is satisfied just to push the ball back over the
net will never make a good tennis player.

third in the various events. Team members enter the

The Annual Aquatic Clinic drew many of the
swimmers to Oklahoma City to see the newest strokes
and water safety methods employed by the state's
outstanding swimmers and Red Cross workers.
The tadpole beginner, from the demonstration
school as well as the college, learned the fundamentals
under the tutelage of varsity members.
A new addition to the swimming classes is for-
mation swimming and diving. This type is not new,
but in the last few 'years special emphasis has been
placed upon it. This includes all sorts of stunt swim-
ming and diving, formation en masse, and games-
all of which are done just for fun. The stunts are
first learned and played by the individual for the
pure joy of the activity and to see how many dif-
ferent water tricks she can learn. The addition of
formation swimming has already done a great deal to
cause the advanced swimmers to want to learn how
to handle the body in unusual positions in the water
-and gain added control and grace, which can not
be obtained through just swimming strokes alone.

One of the most important groups for the leading
of activities of the student body is the cheerleaders.
Each fall they are chosen on a competitive basis by
Mrs. Margaret LaFaver, cheerleader sponsor, mem-
bers of the student council, and former cheerlead-
ers. The most important factors determining their
selection are the desire to cooperate with the group
and student body, leadership ability, and consistency.
Once a cheerleader is chosen, he may remain in
that position as long as he is enrolled at Central
State and fulfills the qualifications. Or, if he so de-
sires, he may resign from the squad. Cheerleaders
are given white sweaters and a letter at the end of
the school year for their work and accomplishments
if they participate during both the football and

Various other social clubs on the campus helped to
make this year one of the most successful years for
good school spirit. As in years gone by, school spirit
helped spur the Bronchos on to win the conference
title in football. This was when school spirit was
at its peak. Big celebrations were planned for win-
ning the conference championship. Last year the
Bronchos were the conference co-champions but
otherwise it has been quite some time since ole Cent-
ral has won the conference title.
Students were set for a big celebration commemor-
ating the occasion and the cheerleaders participated
in all the planned events. School spirit was also in-
creased by the bonfires, which preceded every home
game. The bonfires were followed by huge, weaving
snake dances which coursed through the town of
Edmond and finally back to the campus. Freshmen
cheerleaders held pep rallies at the freshmen Weekly
meetings and other regular pep assemblies were pre-
One of the main events of the year in which the
cheerleaders took part was the gala homecoming
week-end. Cheerleaders had an active part in the
homecoming parade and the festivities held after-
wards, particularly the football game and the coron-
ation of the homecoming queen, who reigns through-
out the homecoming festivities.
Good school spirit continued through the basket-
ball season and as it came to a close, the Bronchos
had finished a successful season. Echos of victorious
yells can still be heard coming from Wantland hall.
We hope this same school spirit may be carried on
to greater heights in the coming years and that
Central students will continue to show appreciation
of the accomplishments their alma mater is making.

The Bronze Book is the official yearbook of Central
State college. It is published by a student staff
chosen by the faculty sponsors and the editors.
One of the biggest tasks was already taken care
of when we arrived in September. The plans for the
1950 Bronze Book were laid. The theme had been
chosen and layouts were being prepared. The staff
members had only to roll up their sleeves and begin
the task of making this year's annual as good as the
1949 Bronze Book which won excellent ratings in
two national contests.
Our first big job of the year was seeing that each
student enrolled in Central had his individual picture
made for the class and club sections of the book. The
staff cooperated wonderfully during the week that
Hal Owens, the professional photographer, was on
the campus-and the evening that we all worked
until the wee hours getting the pictures readv for the
The next few weeks we spent in taking feature
pictures for the book. This proved to be one of our
biggest headaches-notifying persons between classes
to be at a designated place at a designated time, find-
ing that someone couldn't be there, cancelling the
picture or finding someone to substitute. Then there
was always a case of fidgets before each picture as
we wondered if everyone would show up, and if not,
how the picture could be changed to fit the people
who were there.
We offer our sincere thanks to Mr. Woodward
and Mr. Rutledge without whose help this book
would have been very much different. Their patience
and hard work along with their suggestions has made
the Bronze Book much better than it would have
been otherwise. Also our thanks go to Myrtle Alice
Tool and Jack Traynor who worked long hours in
the lab developing our pictures so that we could
meet our deadlines.
During all these weeks, our business staff headed
by Royce Goforth and sponsored by Mr. Bast were
canvassing Edmond and surrounding towns for ad-
vertisements for our book to help defray the print-
ing expenses. In the meantime, the sales staff was
busy selling books to the students.
Our sponsors, Mrs. Meagher and Mr. 'Evans, have
been wonderful in helping us work out our problems
and meet our deadlines. They were always handy
just when we needed help and never too busy to
take time out to assist us. Miss Holcomb and Mr.
Rutledge were always available for help and sug-
Pat Cornwell and Ray Laughlin deserve special
mention for their swell job in writing up the women's
and men's athletic sections of the book. Also Bev-
erly Peel did a grand job with the society, and Don-
old Murphy did a good job taking care of the music
for us. Don Brooksher deserves a great big thanks
for his secretarial work and for filling in any time
we needed him.
Jeannine Archer, Jo Ann Berryhill, Royce Goforth
We had many others on our staff who really de-
serve special mention for the cooperation and hard
work, but they are too numerous to mention here, so
if our readers will read the opposite page they will
see the list of those who had a hand in making the
Bronze Book. We thank everyone of them for being
so agreeable and so helpful.
The class representatives all entered eagerly into
the task of assembling the material which went into
each class section, and the officers and sponsors of
all the classes and clubs were very helpful in assimilat-
ing the information which appears in the book.
The job of being editor of a yearbook has its ups
and downs, and during the process of getting the
annual out, it seems that there are more downs
than ups. But after it is all over and we look back
on it, it was an enjoyable task after all. We learned
some invaluable lessons in working with people and
getting along with them as well as the mechanics
of putting out an annual.
We were plagued with copy, pictures and work
shortages, but here is your 1950 Bronze Book, and
we hope that it won't be necessary for the staff
to exit en-masse the day it is distributed.

The Criterion Club on Central's campus was
founded in 1912 to forward the study of modern
dramatic art and to sustain all ideals of womanhood
and good fellowship. Its original purpose was recently
expanded to aid in the promotion of better social
activities at Central State college.
' Rich in tradition, the club's colors are pink and
silver and its flower is the pink rose. The official
club pin is a gold triangle, set in pearls, with "CC"

The Criterion Alumnae Club was organized in
1944 and has been a constant aid and inspiration to
the active campus club.
Each spring at the close of thc semester, a ban-
quet is held by the Alumnae club in honor of all
the active members and pledges of the Criterion
club. The outstanding Criterion girl of the year, who
is chosen' on basis of character, scholarship, and fel-
lowship merit, is presented a pink rose, in the center
of which is a jeweled Criterion pin.
In the spring of 1949, Joanne Johnson received the
award at the Alumnae Tea held in the Mirror Room
of the Biltmore Hotel.
Criterions remained active during the summer and
to climax their various activities a slumber party
was held at Rodkey's summer lodge.

The Senate Club was organized in 1912 by Hughes
B. Davis and George XVilliams. F. C. Oakes, profes-
sor of English, was the first sponsor of the Senate
club and Davis was the first president.
The Senate wias reorganized after the war. The
constitution was changed and revised at the begin-
ning of 1948, changing the club from a debating
to a social organization, although the members are
still interested in current events and world prob-
Starting the Senate activities last fall was a smok-
er that was held in Thatcher hall for all prospective
rushees and pledges. A planned program was given
with Gene Huser, -president at that time, including
a brief history of the club and its traditions. Piano
numbers, both bar-room type and swing, were pre-
sented by Donald Murphy. Each pledge introduced
himself and stated his reason for Wanting to join
the Senate club.
During pledge Week, the pledges were required to
fulfill any request of che club members. The final
night of Pledge week was climaxed with a dance in
honor of che pledges.
The following men became pledges at that time:

Gilmore, Pat Kirkland, Robert Pate, Gene Russell,
Adolph Shotts, Richard Davidson, Doyle J. Moor-
head, Jack Davis, Charles Farr, John Humphries,
Wfilliam Listen, William Purcell, jack Russell, Ro-
bert Williams, and Robert Hutton.
At the all-school carnival, which was held in che
gymnasium to raise money for the Bronze Book, the
Senate club operated a ring tossing game. This pro-
ject netted the club some profit.
The Senators walked off wich second place honors
for their homecoming float this year. The float con-
sisted of a platform of blue with the Senate's emblem.

Once a Shakespeare, always a Shakespeare" is a
very appropriate motto for one of Central's out-
standing social clubs. Shakespeare was organized in
1908 and has the prestige of being the oldest social
club for women on the campus.
Its purpose, as in any other club of this type, is to
create and stimulate social interest for members,
to aid in developing intelligent social minded women.
In years past the basic purpose of the club was solely
to study the works and life of William Shakespeare.
The official club pin is a gold English "S" and
it is set with pearls. A smaller English "S" of plain
gold is the pledge pin. The flower is La France Rose.
Pink and green are the club's colors.

Each year the beginning of the fall semester is
crowded with rush parties. Some of the parties this
year were coke parties and outdoor activities such as
wiener roasts. The alumnae of Shakespeare gave a
tea-luncheon and presented a very entertaining pro-
gram for the rushees.
After the close of rush week on the campus the
selected rushees were sent bids. On the night of bid
house, the rushees unofficially became pledges to the
club. A formal candle-light pledgeship service was
held later in the west living room of Murdaugh hall.
This year the schedule for club meetings was plan-
ned with the social aspect in mind. Guest speakers
were often highlights in the meetings.

Organized first as a girls debating society in the
spring of 1914, the First Triumvirate Club has since
grown into a social and literary club.

this year, Dr. Frances Lauderdale, who has faith-
fully guided the organization in all its activities.
Rush activities for the first semester included the
presentation of a stunt at the freshman mixer and
a formal dinner party in the private dining hall at
Murdaugh hall followed by a coke party at Royce's
cafe. Following "Bid House", the pledges were guests
at an informal party at the Grill. Nineteen pledges
were received into the club at that time.
At the Bronze Book Carnival, the club sponsored
the cake walk booth which proved quite successful.
The club was represented in the Homecoming
parade with a float representing a gondola. Trium-
virate Alumnae were entertained with a homecoming
day luncheon at the home of Mrs. Eugene Simpson
at which time old friendships were renewed.
Club programs for the year centered around the

vice was held directly in front of a large lace trim-
med red heart in the center of the dance floor.

The Tau Theta Kappa Club was organized in the
fall of 1917 by Professor W. T. Ford, at the sug-
gestion of President Graves. The primary object
of the club at that time Wias to stimulate interest
in debating among the girls at Central. Since then
it has changed from a debating club into a social
club for girls. It was inactive for a time, but was
reorganized in the spring of 1948. Since then it has
gradually grown to its present size, and shows prom-
ise of attaining much greater importance in the years
The club motto, "Know Thyself", expresses more

was given a w'l1ite rose and welcomed into the club.
The white rose is the club flower, and suggests green
and white as the combination for the club colors.
The college carnival in October proved to be fun
for everyone. The Tau Theta Kappa sponsored the
bingo stand. Prizes were donated by club members
and made a beautiful display in the center of the
stand. The center of attraction seemed to be the
stuffed animals made by club members.
The club float in the Homecoming Parade was a
car and trailer decorated to resemble a miniature
garden surrounded by a picket fence. The gate to
the garden was a trellis of flowers. Patricia Bell,
blond-haired, blue-eyed daughter of Dr. and Mrs.
J. T. Bell, was riding in it. She was dressed in a long,

flowers which she threw to the people along the

Alpha Psi Omega, founded in West Virginia in
1925, is the largest national college organization in
any departmental field with 270 chapter and 15,000
members. Its publication is "The Playbill" which
gives excellent intercollegiate contacts.
Its local chapter affords many social and pleasur-
able activities in addition to play work. An annual
stage party is held each fall. Invitations are issued
to the presidents of all campus organizations and their
guests. This is always one of the highlights on the
campus social calendar. Guests come costumed as
titles of famous plays.
Our theater enthusiasts consistently attend plays
in Oklahoma City. During the past year, theater
parties were formed for "The Barretts of Wimpole
Street," "Streetcar Named Desire", "Brigade-on",
"Man and Superman", and "The Hasty Heart".
The club exchanged courtesies with Oklahoma
City University. We saw their productions of "The

This year the club has attended each weekly at-
traction of the popular Winter stock company, the
Piper Players, which is holding forth in the Vogue
theater in Oklahoma City. Social contacts with them
have been l1'lOSt stimulating.
The second semester, honorary membership in Al-
pha Psi Omega was extended to Miss Katherine
Davies, exchange professor from Swansea, Wales,
who took a lead role in "Night Must Fall", and to
Paul Piper, of the Piper Players
A project that Alpha Psi Omega leaders are spon-
soring is the installation of a national professional
fine arts fraternity into which outstanding mem-
bers from the music, dance, art and drama organiza-
tions of Central State college might be amalgamated.
The purposes of such an allied fine arts fraternity
would be to foster unity among the arts, to discover
and assist potential artists, and to center community
and state attention on the fine arts. The aim of such
an organization might well be to maintain a Central
Loan Fund which may be loaned to Worthy art
students, and to maintain a system of awards.
We pause to review our year's accomplishments,
to take stock of the present and to build for an even

the various phases of commerce. Its membership in-
cludes those who plan to enter the teaching profes-
sion as well as those who will enter the business
world. Membership in the organization is open to
anyone interested in any division of commerce.
The club seeks to develop an understanding of
business environment, business services, businesf
functions, and business procedures. An effort is
made to bring several of the outstanding business
and professional men of the state before the club
each year so that members may have contacts with
those connected with the business World.
Members of the organization receive instruction
in the operation of various office machines such as
the dictaphone, calculators, and bookkeeping ma-

humorous reading at one meeting.
The second semester the sponsor gave a report to
the club concerning his trip to the National Business

The Phi Kappa Delta is a relatvely new organiza-
tion on the campus of Central State college. It is an
honorary fraternity which was organized on the
campus last spring. Its main function and purpose
is to stimulate and promote the art of debate and
There are certain rules and regulations which
govern participation in this organization. Before any-
one may become a member, he must have partici-
pated in at least four intercollegiate debates. The
college purchases a Phi Kappa Delta pin for each
member in the fraternity, and it is presented to him
in the awards assembly at the close of the spring term.
Each year there is an annual national Phi Kappa
Delta debate tournament which is held at a dif-
ferent location each time. Before a team is eligible
for participation, both must be members of the
fraternity. Bob Brown and John Rogers represented
Central State college at the national tournament.
They won five out of eight debates, a very out-
This year the Phi Kappa Delta organization is a
working and growing concern. At the present time,
there are many prospective members. Many new
debaters were added to the group at the beginning
of the second semester.
Joe C. Jackson, debate coach, is allowed to send
only a limited number of teams to the annual tourna-
ment at Texas Christian University. This tournament
is one of the most efficiently conducted contests in
which debaters participate. This is the nearest substi-
tute to a true national tournament except the West
Point tournament which is by invitation only.

an informal initiation party held in the lounge of
the dean of Women. We joined with the commerce
department for our annual Christmas party which

ment at Homecoming.
A national convention is held every other year
during the Christmas holidays in one of the major
industrial cities of the nation. At this convention
are discussed the problems of business education, and
representatives are introduced to new methods and
machines. A representative from the Alpha Mu
chapter is sent to each convention.

been honored in that one of our members, Linda
Lou Spencer, of Mountain View was chosen vice-

The Mathematics Council was organized in Oc-
tober, 1949 for the purpose of giving opportunity for
Mathematics majors and minors and others keenly
interested in the subject to meet together to discuss
current problems and to consider topics of interest
If you were asked the question, "NVhat is Mathe-
matics", what would you answer? There would likely
be as many answers as there are people and perhaps
all the answers would be correct as far as they went.
The members of the Mathematics Council are inter-
rvti li. al, ,sn ri. n, rl --U ir,
ested in all these answers. They believe that mathe-
matics is not a hard or complicated subject, but that
is an exact science, and as such is one of the simplest
of all to understand.
The members are discovering that there is mathe-
matics in music, in literature, in social science, in
art, in drama, in life, as well as in the sciences and
other related fields. An interest in this phase resulted
in the presentation of a radio program that was heard
on the weekly college radio program.
The members acted as hosts to the teachers of
mathematics in attendance at the annual district
teachers meeting. They contributed much to the
program by providing many Visual aids used in the
teaching of the various subjects, especially in the
fields of plane and solid geometry, and trigonometry.
They also secured the names of films which were
available for class room use. The members previewed
some of the films before they were used in this way.

The school year 1949-S0 has been one of constant
activity for the industrial arts club at Central which
is a chapter of the Oklahoma Industrial arts associa-
tion. We are proud of our increase in membership
from 32 last year to 5 9 members this year, thus
making us strong contenders for the title of the
most rapidly growing departmental club on the
campus. The club is publishing a semi-monthly bul-
letin pertaining to club member and industrial arts
activities on the campus.
Some of the highlights of the year were the visits
'to near-by highschools' shops in which Central grad-
uates teachg a clever floating balloon booth at the
school carnival, a power boat float for the home-
coming parade that rivaled Professor Smith's boat
designs, a visit to the furniture factory at jones, a

The Central State College Historical Society was
organized in 1915 for the purpose of collecting and
utilizing the source records of our state, national
and international history. The Historical Collection
is housed in the balcony of Evans hall. The Society
is listed in "Handbook of Historical Societies in the
United States and Canada".
In December 1915, the society placed a native
granite marker at 19 North Broadway, where the
first class in the Territorial Normal School was or-
In 1931, the organization became affiliated with
the Carnegie Endowment for Education through
which it has received annually two allotments of
books, authentic studies of vital contemporary prob-
A complete file of the Edmond Sun and the Vista
is kept by the Historical Societyg and a complete file
of the Chronicles of Oklahoma was placed in Cen-
tral's Library of Original Evidence.
In July 1948 the society purchased a United Na-
tions Flag, which, in November, was replaced by a
larger flag secured by the society.
The program for the first semester of the year
was devoted to the history of Oklahoma. Programs
for the second semester were devoted wholly to "The
Necessity of Efficient Administration of the Law".
This series was initiated February with a study of
the significance of 'kThe Judge Mansfield Decision"

The Alumni Association of Central State College
is an organization of graduates and former students,
maintained for the advancement of the college and
the alumni. Its chief aim is to provide a medium
through which the college and the alumni may keep
in touch for the purpose of mutual helpfulness.
The members of the board of directors represent
many professions and walks of life. The teaching
profession is well represented with several teachers,
school superintendents, one county superintendent
and the associate secretary of the Oklahoma Educa-
tional Association. There are two practicing attorneys
and a county attorney, three insurance men, a post-
master, a newspaper publisher, and bank vice-presi-
dent on our board. To illustrate further the represen-
tative group composing our board of directors, we
have a construction engineer, a real estate man, a
service station owner, a regional manager, a licensed
pilot, a city clerk, two company salesmen, a retired
business man, and two housewives on the board. All
are Central graduates and represent classes from
each decade of this century-the earliest class repre-
sented being 1904-the latest, 1948.
The year 1949 was a busy year for the Alumni
Association. Its members joined with the members
of the other Alumni Associations of the state
schools in support of the 36 million bond issue, for
the repair of old buildings, and for much needed new
buildings at state institutions. They issued the foot-
ball programs for the four home games, they co-
sponsored the formal inauguration of our new presi-
dent, Dr. W. Max Chambers. They helped with the
homecoming activities and had a reception for the
senior class. February 10, the Alumni Association
presented a radio program on the Central Campus
Revues. All during the year the members have been
busy on a program of organization of Central clubs.

Alpha Phi Sigma is a national honorary scholastic
fraternity. The Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma
was organized at Central State College in 1934.
The fraternity tries to instill within each member
a desire and love of learning by associating with
others who have a high scholastic ability and Who
strive continuously to maintain their scholastic hon-
ors. Scholarship among pupils in the secondary
schools is encouraged by providing recognition of
high scholastic attainment when the student gradu-
ates from the secondary school. This in turn in-
cludes college students, who are members of this
organization, to return to their home schools and en-
courage their friends in the secondary school to at-
tain high scholarship.
Alpha Phi Sigma counteracts influences which are
detrimental to scholastic attainment in college. It
produces public sentiment for exceptional scholar-
ship among ambitious students in the college. It al-
so strives to produce stronger, better equipped and
better spirited graduates, with better understanding
to serve the communities into which they go.
The purpose of Alpha Phi Sigma is motivating as
a student must maintain their scholastic average for
two semesters before gaining entrance into the or-
ganization. Entrance to the organization is on the
basis of scholastic standing as determined by the

ing a grade average of 3.25 for two consecutive se-
mesters at Central State College.
Associate memberships have been set up for all
highschool valedictorians and salutatorians. Full
membership is attained by these associate members
when they have maintained the 3.25 grade average
for two semesters.
The scholastic requirements of Alpha Phi Sigma
have been raised in che last two years by changing
the grade average from 3.2 for one semester to 3.25
for two consecutive semesters. Nothing prevents a
local chapter from raising the qualifications for
membership in their local chapter.
The official key, or pin, which is the insignia of
the organization, has a background of gold. Horizon-
tally across the key appear the raised Greek letters,
"Alpha Phi Sigma," symbolizing college life. Above
the raised letters is the symbol of knowledge, indicat-
ing the sfudent's worthiness to membership in the
organization. Below the raised letters are three green
emeralds, symbolic of the growth of the student in
all scholastic and extra-curricular activities.
Lambda Chapter awards a medal each year to the
member who has excelled in personality, service,
vision and scholarship. Each member of the Lambda
Claude Young, Peggy Whitmore
Chapter is desirous of being the one chosen to receive
this coveted medal.
Formal initiation of Lambda Chapter was held
October 24, 1949. Twenty-six students were initiat-
ed into full membership at that time. On October
25, 1949, a formal reception was given by the of-
ficers of the chapter for the freshmen who were
valedictorians and salutatorians of their graduating
class. This was the first reception of its kind for the
associate members to be given by the chapter. Its
purpose was to acquaint the associate members with
the ideals and purposes of Alpha Phi Sigma. It en-
couraged them to set their grade standards high so
that they might be initiated as regular members of
the fraternity later.
The national officers of this fraternity consist of
the national president and vice-president. The na-
tional president carries on all the business of the or-
ganization. There exists a national advisory council
composed of elected officers, the past presidents of
the national office and one student representative
appointed by the national president from two dif-
ferent chapters. A national convention is held each
year, with one representative from each chapter per-
mitted to attend.

Gamma Omega chapter of Kappa Delta Pi was
installed April 25, 1935, by T. C. McCracken, na-
tional president at that time. Kappa Delta Pi, an
honor society in education, was incorporated in 1911.
Throughout the thirty-nine years of its history,
Kappa Delta Pi has remained loyal to the purpose
for which it was created-the promotion of the
scholarly profession of education. Its founders were
zealous in helping to deepen and broaden the foun-
dations of the profession of teaching. Staffs and
students of education dreamed of, and began to plan
for, new careers rich with opportunities for such
social and economic contentment as might attract
men and women of large educational talents and
vision. For this reason the constitution of the society
has specifically included such statements as the fol-
lowing: "Consecrated to social service", "High moral
character among those who are making educational
work their professions", "Shall foster professional
growth". Loyalty to such ideals has implied fidelity
to the cause of free inquiry, to well attested truth,
to the significance of scientific evidence, and to such
imperatives as certainty, accuracy, and definiteness.
It has implied faith in human nature, in its edu-
icability, in its potentiality, in its inexhaustable
capacity. Duty toward the profession of education
means altruism and service-the will to serve, the
serene satisfaction awarded those who have been in-
tellectually honest and socially just.
Knowledge of professional content is not the
only driving force of the purpose of Kappa Delta
Pi. No less significant is loyalty to the profession
itself. Knowledge is not an end in itself. It is a social
instrument. Understanding of great meanings, of
ideas as plans of progressive action, offers the privi-
lege and imposes the duty to make them known.
Herein lies man's supreme responsibility-to guide
the young by means of the evidence accumulated by

The Society has interpreted the profession of edu-
cation as an ethical calling. As a profession, it stands
or falls with the attitude of its members toward
those values which the wisdom of the ages has ex-
alted as the compulsions of human welfare. It has
welcomed to membership those who can contribute
to a growing profession because of their qualifica-

Kappa Delta Pi has never sought educational con-
trol or to influence educational thought by sponsor-
ing any particular theory of education. Intellectual
freedom prevails throughout Kappa Delta Pi. It has
interpreted power not so much as organized forceg
as individual capacity and resolution to serve young
and old by means of education. A profession of edu-
cation has power only to the degree that its mem-
bers are as individually strong wherever they live
and work. Each individual must possess capacity and

abilityg the organization provides ways of uniting
individual capacities and abilities in behalf of a
comrnon cause, but this must be the vital motivating
force of each member.
Thus Kappa Delta Pils main purpose as an honor
society in education has entailed a threefold objective
-scholarship, an educational profession, and the
development of power to serve. The purpose of Kap-
pa Delta Pi, never having been defined in terms of
a preferred philosophy of education, has been suf-
ficiently elastic to admit varying interpretations of
knowledge or scholarship and professional standards.
Kappa Delta Pi lives and moves and has its being
within a spirit of critical liberalism.
No less liberal has been the society's attitude to-
ward social theory. Without sponsoring any one type
of professional organization, it looks with approval
upon any agency that will gain adequate social and
economic recognition for teachers on all educational
levels and thereby greater power for realizing the ideal
of equal educational opportunities for all of the

unit buildings in the village, and they are occupied
by about forty-five families whose combined number
of children total about seventy.
The Centralville wives undertook as their first
project the acquiring of equipment for a playground
in the village. Since that time the club has con-
tinued to function, taking up in its meetings such
things as child study. It organizes such functions
as parties, dances and covered dish dinners.

October 26, 1938, by the Alumni Secretary, Miss
Edna Jones. As the name implies, members are sons
and daughters of former students-Centralites who
caught the true Central spirit and are passing it on
to their children.
In response to numerous requests, the club was
opened to all second generation Centralites-alumni
and former students as well as resident students.
There were 85 charter members and they chose for

The YWCA was organized at Central in 1906.
The 1949-50 season opened with a "Visit to Judy".
Fifty girls went to the zoo for a picnic and devo-
tional. This was followed by discussions, speakers,
book reviews and parties. Daily mid-day meditation
and song services in the chapel were maintained.
Miss Margaret Fisher, Southwest Regional secretary,
addressed the Thanksgiving Fireside. Representatives
attended each conference.
The group compiled the "Student Directory", and
had a part in both the Homecoming parade and the
carnival. The Time Capsule was sealed in a crypt
to be opened in 1990.
Contributions were made to the World Student
Service fund, and the University of Phillipines.
Bibles were sent to Russia. Supplies were prepared
for a nursery.
It was a proud moment when more than eight
year's work culminated in the presentation of the

The preamble to the constitution of the student
council states that "We, the students and faculty
of Central State college, in order to govern our-
selves more wisely, to develop the professional spirit
in education, to foster high ideals of conduct, to
establish worthy traditions for those who come after
us, and to further unity and cooperation among the
students, faculty and administration of our college,
do hereby establish and ordain this constitution."
At the first of the present school year, the council
sponsored the election of an all-school queen by pop-
ular ballot. The queens were nominated by petitions
signed by twenty names. Voting was held at an all-
school carnival sponsored by the Bronze Book, and
the queen, Roberta Thrasher, was crowned between
halves of the homecoming football game. The stu-
dent council sponsored a marriage bureau at the car-
Freshman Week, five days of initiation for new
students, wias revived this year by the Student Coun-
cil. The week was taken up with freshman antics
such as snake dances through town, personal favors
to upper classmen, clothes worn backwards, fresh-
men boys carrying upper classgirls' books and
freshmen girls carrying upper class boys' books.
Freshmen could be easily identified by the skull caps
with bells which they were encouraged to wear dur-
ing the week. Any freshman found disobeying the
rules got free haircuts and free lipstick.
The student council also sponsored the selection of
a traditional class ring by the student body. Two
companies presented their rings, and at a popular
election the student body selected the ring which

In order to help pay for the die cast on the tra-
ditional rings, and thus lessen the cost per individual
ring, the student council sponsored a donkey basket-
ball game in the college gymnasium. Ralph Godfrey
of Crescent was on hand for the occasion with his
donkeys, and two hilarious games of donkey basket-
ball entertained Spectators. The Arena men's club
challenged the Senate men's club to a match, and
the Edmond highschool's lettermen played the Cen-
tral college lettermen. The game was preceded by
the "Hobby Donkey Derby", and Mr. Godfrey pre-
sented his own trained donkey act between quarters
of the games.
Between semesters, the student council opened a
student book exchange for the benefit of the student
body. Students brought their books to the exchange
and left them to be sold. Each student put his own
price on his book. When the book was sold, the
council took out ten percent of the price received
for the book for handling it, and the remainder Went
to the original owner of the book. The council hopes
to make the exchange a regular thing at Central.
The highlight of the year for the student council
was the establishment of a student center on the
campus. The war surplus building north of the foot-
ball stadium was taken over by the club and rejuven-
ated. The council painted the walls inside and re-
modeled the building. The west room was made into
a book exchange and room in which to play cards.
The twfo east rooms were put together, and gum,
candy and soft drink machines were installed. Tables
were put up and a part of the floor was left for
dancing. A juke box was installed.
Members of the student council, with the help
of representatives from some of the clubs on the
campus, did all the work on the remodeling of the
building. Painting was all done by volunteer help
and the girls in the council made curtains for the
windows. The center was established purely as a place
for the students to gather. It is a non-profit or-
On December 12, approximately fifty student
council members representing seven Oklahoma col-
leges and universities met in formal conference at
Central State College. Fay O'Dell, Central State stu-
dent council president, presided at the meeting.
Two separate conferences were held during the
afternoon session. Lloyd Noel, Central State college
led the discussion in the publicity panel, and C. H.
Spearman, also of Central, led the co-operation panel.
Oil base paint was voted out in future campus
painting. The group agreed that nothing more per-
manent than whitewash should be used, and this is
to be applied only to sidewalks-not to buildings.
Whitewasliing, should it be done, must take place
during the week preceding the contest.
Each school's student council is to meet previous
to contests to decide whether a walkout is in order
in case of a win. The decision of the council is to be
published before the game so that the student body
may know whether they may ask for a holiday.
Students will be admitted to all out-of-town
games in which their team participates, for fifty
cents plus their activity ticket. Pep club, bands and
cheerleaders will be admitted free if accompanied
by an official sponsor.
Besides attending numerous conferences at other
colleges during the spring term, the members of the
student council participated in a panel discussion
over Central's weekly radio program, Central Cam-
pus Revues. During this period, the members dis-
cussed activities of the council throughout the first
semester and plans for the second semester.

Tom Harmon, Don Murphy, Vier XVinans, Bob Wliite
This small group was organized by Don Murphy
in September. Since then it has been responsible for
playing at many school and non-school dances.
Vier Wlinans has an outstanding background to
support his trumpet playing. He has been an expert
bandsman in both military and dance bands since
his highschool days.
Bob White spent his past musical days in Los
Angeles adding rhythm to his own band. Mickey,
it may be interesting to note, was also an outstanding
member of the famed Roller Derby for two years.
Tom Harmon, the group's vocalist, added another
spark to the small unit, although he was ci late ad-
dition. His vocals were the soft background type,
compatable with the music of the trio. Tom's exper-
ience as a drama student enhanced his personality,
which helped the band click so readily.
The group has done well, considering its late or-
ganization, and has been an addition to the school.

Art is designed to meet living situations of all
students. The Art Department provides opportunities
to see, evaluate, originate, design and create art in
college life. All beginning courses are flexible for
students who wish art for creative, social, recreational
and professional experiences.
A four year program prepares students who will
teach art in elementary schools and high schools. Op-
portunities to observe, participate, and teach art in
the demonstration school of the college strengthens
the student's confidence and success in the teaching
field. With studios of the Art department open daily,
desired art skills may be developed quickly.

At the beginning of each new fall term, the
debate class is confronted with a new question
for argumentation. This year the topic is stated
as follows: Resolved that the United States should
nationalize the basic non-agricultural industries.
For several weeks, intensive study was made
by every member of the class concerning this
question. It is a topic which has unlimited material.
The class participates in several tournaments
each year. At the first of the school year, there
were eleven people who journeyed to Winfield,
Kansas, for a tournament. Bob Rudkin and Royce
Hanson went to semi-finals before being eliminat-
ed. Lloyd Noel and C. H. Spearman were elimin-
ated in the quarter-finals by Oklahoma A 86 M.
Our efforts were then concentrated on the
tournament at Ada, Oklahoma. This is one of the
largest tournaments in the southwest. C. H.
Spearman and Lloyd Noel won all six of their
debates and defeated Southern Methodist Uni-
versity in the finals, to win the tournament. Our
group also did exceptionally well in the individual
After the victory at Ada, we went to Baylor
in Waco, Texas for our next tournament. Not
to be outdone by the other teams, Lanora Owens
and Jack Russell went to the semi-finals before
being eliminated by Southwestern of Springfield,
Missouri. Lanora Owens received second place in
women's poetry interpretation and women's ex-
.temporaneous speaking. Jack Russell received
second place in men's poetry interpretation.
Our class each year sponsors one of the largest
high school debate tournaments in the state of
Oklahoma on the campus at Central. This year
the tournament was March 10-11.
Representatives of Central's debaters appeared

By far the most outstanding week in this school
year was the annual Arena Week. This week in-
cluded most of the major activities of the Arena
Club, and during this period, from March 25
through April 1, the Arenamen ruled the campus,
Highlighting Arena Week and che entire social
year at Central was the Arena Nert Fest, which
was two hours of gala entertainment with laughs
and gags galore plus a number of small acts and
skits which kept the audience "rolling in the
aisles". Leading the parade of stars, was that ver-
satile emcee, James Joseph Petree, better known
to his friends as "Hot Breath Hoolohann. He was
a natural for this lead since mother nature had
aided him in every possible way, and he gave a
stellar performance. Following the spectacular
entrance of "Hot Breath", creating such hilarious
uproar that the audience Was lifted out of their
seats time and time again.
Starting the show off with a bang, the Arena
Club presented a chorus line of dainty, and highly
accomplished artists. They danced the can-can as
gracefully as Princess Margaret Rose, and amazed
the audience with their intriguing costumes. Sam
86 Rastus, repeaters from the 1949 performance,
funnier and more popular than ever before, gave
an unequaled performance as they kept the aud-
ience in a continuous uproar, because they didn't
know what to expect next. Among other acts to
be remembered were: the Arenamen's Quartet,
- ----0----- -----oo:::::::Q:::::::o:
Donald Murphy and his Dixie Land Band, that
strip tease artist Greg Holford, that traveling man
Joe Grey, and Peirre ,Ioblot with his new astonish-
ing French styles and his models from gay Paree.
These and many other skits and hilarious acts,
comprised the most talked about "Nert Fest" of
Saturday, April 1, of Arena Week, was given
to the schedule of events which honored the re-
turning Arenarnen who were once more seen
about the campus reliving the days of their past
activities in the Arena Club. First on the list of
the events was a Smoker which was held in
Thatcher Hall from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. Following
the Smoker, a banquet was held at Royce Cafe
from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., honoring old Arenamen.
At 9:00 p.m. the 27th annual Arena Barn Dance
got under way, and students packed the Mur-
daugh Hall living room attired in blue jeans and
boots and big hats to lend the proper atmosphere.
Providing the music for the Barn Dance was
Floyd "Red" Rice who featured as his vocalist
Miss Oklahoma City of 1949. They left no doubt
in the minds of those who attended that they are
one of the finest bands in the southwest, and they
gave Arena Week the climax which it so rightly
The Arena Week is the only week of its kind
on the calendar. The club provides entertainment
not only for members and alumni, but for the
entire student body.

ATTENTION ALL MARINES
MARINE AUXILIARY MEMBERS ! !!
FROM THE OFFICE OF THE CHAPLAIN:
As you are fully aware, our great leader, Com-
mander-In-Chief Ollie Faye O'Dell, through hon-
esty, integrity, and the ability to get the right
tests at the right time, is being sprung this year
of our Lord nineteen hundred fifty.
As he leaves the shelter and security of the
hallowed halls of C.S.C., let us review his life sc
far, so that all underclassmen, peons, and non-
marines can see how an almost ordinary young
man rose to the great heights of Commander-Im
Some twenty-five years ago, the stork visited
the O'Dell family in Springdale, Ark. and brought
Ollie Faye, but pa and ma O'Dell were so dis-
appointed for they were expecting a baby. De-
spite disappointments, they kept Ollie Faye. His
parents soon discovered that Ollie was an ex-
ceptional child-he learned to walk at the age of
53:6 years, and finally could talk English at 7.
fl-Ie never was very good for he learned the
Marine language at the age of three months and
still hasn't given it up.j As he was a shy, unpre-
tentious child, his formal schooling didn't begin
until he was 10, but once started he made rapid
progress by organizing the lower level of the
nursery school students in to the Jr. Marines-
Naturally Ollie Faye led these brave, pardon the
expression, soldiers through many grave and
serious encounters with the common enemy of
the public schools-teachers. And it was here that
he started liking girls-the minute he found out
they weren't boys.
Some fourteen years later our hero graduated
from Springdale High School, not only with a
diploma in his hand, but with the right and priv-
ilege of joining the United States Marine Corps.
Quickly assuming responsibility, Ollie Faye was
promoted to P.F.C., and chief cleaner of the
grease pits, truly the greatest honor the Marines
can bestow upon a human being.
Ollie Faye and the rest of his men won the war
practically -single handed-remind him to tell
you about his capturing 15,000 Taps, alone, and
unassisted-by surrounding them. For this feat
he received the Lavender Gizzard, and 73 other
honors and rewards-most notable was a round
trip pogo-stick ticket to Springdale, Ark.
Then by the grace of God, Ollie Faye descended
on the campus of C.S.C. Again he showed his
superior leadership and soon had the finest bunch
of troops to be found in the world. Under his
command they have quelled many riots and Walk-
outs. They have gained distinction and honors for
the corps, not only scholastically fAHEMj but
in every activity, they are outstanding.
Ollie Faye realized his life time ambition at this
institution when he led the student body in sing-
ing the Marine Corps Hymn. And when the
leopard escaped-did he shirk his duty? He did
not ! ! ! He was right behind Potter when they
saw him .... Let us all read this life history with
honor and respect for Ollie Faye goes out into the
world, not alone, but with the entire corps sin-
cerely behind him-It is our duty to him to save
this campus and recruit all able bodied men, wo-
men, and teachers into the Central State College

SIGHTSEEING WITH SIMMONS
As you come to the end of the pictures of bath-
ing beauties, honor rolls, red-brick buildings, and
queens of the campus, you now approach the best
part of the Bronze book-the advertising section.
Now, don? close the book just yet. You know,
it would never be possible to publish this wonder-
ful book if it weren't for the grand, loyal support
of the progressive business people in this area.
I know that each and- every one was glad to
do this, and that he is standing behind his trans-
parent front door, Carnation in his lapel with an
outstretched hand and an open cash register. So,
go buy something.
Seriously, these merchandisers think maybe. as
you depart from these "hallowed halls", fthose of
you who get away this yearj you may have oc-
casion to buy sometliing once in awhile . . whether
it's clothes, an automobile, a steak dinner, or a
new house. As a matter of fact there are sponsors
enough here you can depend on from the time
you receive your diploma to the time you reach
your last resting place Cdon't send flowers, no
So these Bronze Book folks asked me to check

Well, I started out at nine o'clock with a good,
home-cooked breakfast over at the Grill. R. A.
Walters, the real estate man, was in there trying
to win on the basketball slot machine, but he had
to quit and go sell a house.
I drove my Pontiac down to Jack Birdwell's
Modern Motors Pontiac Sales and Service to have
it checked. Jack began telling me that it has been
proved, contrary to the old belief, that women
drivers are safer th-rx men drivers. It has been
found that when a woman is driving and meets
another woman driver, her instinctively quick
reflexes enable her to miss the other woman driv-
er. Yet, when .1 man meets a woman driver, his
reflexes are so much slower that before he can
avert colliding with the woman, CRASH! Well,
I guess Jack gets to sell a new Pontiac . . . and
maybe Fred Kirkland at Kirklar1d's Drug can
sell some liniment.

two farmers talking about how many eggs their
chickens laid because because they ate feed from

I passed the Broncho theatre which was dis-

of folks like to see movies every week and see
them over and over again at the Broncho. I am
reminded of the elderly lady who attended a stage
play here at Central. It was her first time to see
stage drama. She seemed thrilled with the actors
in the first act. But during the intermission she
got up and put on her hat and coat to leave. Now,
the usher guessed that perhaps she was not too
familiar with stage plays and asked her if she
didn't like the piay. "Ch, very much," she re-
plied. He asked her if she wouldnit stay to see
the remaining two acts. "No, thanks," said the

Yes, there can be many a slip from the "strike"
to the frying pan. How simple it would be if the
fish would simply jump into the net-clean itself
-go to market and then miraculously appear in
your frying pan ready to be cooked! But nature's
gifts are never free. Before they become of real
value they must be caught, processed and trans-
ported to you.

After lunch at the Wide-a-Wake I went over
to the Edmond Drug and loafed awhile. I viewed
a lovely young thing sipping a soda and I thought
that in another year she would be going to college
and would be browsing over this 1950 yearbook.

Wfell, behold who's here. It's two of my friends
who are graduating-Charlie and Mercedes. You
say you're married! Congratulations and best
wishes. Charlie says they have decided after going
to school for four years at Edmond, they'll just
settle down and build their little love nest right
here. Mercedes is attractively decked out in a
spring suit from I-Iarry Katz in Oklahoma City.
You were just married yesterday? You stayed

live here in Edmond.
To cell you my story right, I will start out on
this new Gray Magic Royal Typewriter.
Well, first they rode the Nichols Hills bus up
here from the city. The first place I took Mer-
cedes and Charlie was over to the Citizens Nation-
al Bank to fix up a home loan. We then saw the
Skaggs Construction people about building the
home. Then I took them to see my friend Herb
Oakes over at Oakes Materials.

Old Herb likes to welcome newcomers to Ed-
mond and brag about our town. And of course
he's eager to pour some ready-mixed concrete to
help build permanent homes. Just give him your
OK and before you can raise an eyebrow a batch of
the stuff is being mixed in a big truck while its
driving out to wherever you want the concrete.
Well, after working out our "concrete prob-
lems," we drove down to the Graham Motor Co.
I wanted Rex Graham to put Charlie behind
the wheel of a new Ford and let him test drive it.
Married folks need an automobile. Well, I rushed
Mercedes and Charlie over to Longbell and had an
estimate made on how much lumber it would take
to build their new home. Oh, just about forgot.
We haverft even got a location yet. Well, John
Thomas, realtor, can fix us up. Time to stop

Mercedes and Charlie were really two people very
much in love. I-le's the kind who would brag about
his wife's cooking, and she would want to help
him become a tremendous business success. And
I hope that's the way it always is for them. I
know that there are many couples that get to be

"What do you mean, 'a new member of the fam-

"I-Iey! Look what you typed!" George interrupt-

Well, at last I had Mercedes and Charlie about
ready to move into their little nest in Edmond
except for one important item which We pur-
chased on our last stop. At Reed and Snyder gro-
cery and market we got some food. On the way
to their new home ffast construction jobj we
passed the Central Cleaners and I asked them if
there Was anything We could get there. "No,
thanks," said Charlie, i'After shopping today I've
already been taken to the cleaners a dozen times."
All unloaded now . . . almost forgot this last
package . . . another item from Harry Katz.
What a day. Well, I stopped into the BroWn's
Snooker Parlor to relax for a while. Then I walked
down the sidewalk and looked into the pretty dis-
play of ties, suits and dresses of the Dixie Store. I
recall the time a man went in to buy a dress and
night gown for his wife. "Do you have the
measurements, Sirf' he was asked.
"Yes, I do."
'lWhat size then does your wife want."
"A 36 in the dress and 21 46 in the night gown."
"Impossible, sir. Not a 36 and 46. Do you want
a 36 OR 46 in dress and gown?"

"I want a 36 in the dress and the 46 in the
night gown. My wife doesn't sleep in her girdle."
On my way back to the college I stopped in at
Thompson's Bookstore to get typewriter ribbons
and paper for this task. Next door at the Sol
Devereaux Store, Mrs. Devereaux showed me the
new Russell Wriglit and Frankoma pottery. They
also have drygoods and costume jewelry.
Then, at my last stop, I was in the College
Shop for a six o'clock snack. That's where stu-
dents can be found all day between, and some-
times during classes. I remember the time a fresh-
man, after being at Central about three months,
had never yet attended an assembly. One day he
was in the College Shop, where he was employed,
when a suave, hulking individual walked in and
asked to see the manager. The freshman called,
"Hey, there's a man here to see you. Some fellow
. . doesn't know what he wants?
Curious as to the muffled snickers the fresh-
man later found the strange man was the presi-
dent of Central. The embarrased freshman was
remembered that Christmas with an engraved
card from the president. Actually, this happened
in 1933. It would not occur to a 1950 student.
Speaking of engraved cards, these ads must
now go to Southwestern Engraving so the Bronze
Book may go to the Carpenter Press and be all
ready for you this spring.
