THE HAH CLUB
The 'A' Club was first organized
n 1915 for the purpose of establish-
ng a better cooperative spirit between
he boys and the school.
In order to be eligible for mem-
ership in the HA' Club, a boy must
ke part in a fourth of the games
layed during his school year.
The length of time for initiation l
s decided by the club members, but it
nnot exceed e week. At the end ot
his time the coach administers the
A' Club oath, and then the boy 1e.a
The club was reorganized this
ear. The officers selected by the
Buddy Young -------- Secretary
The Aurora High School golf team
le composed of Howard Bagby, Henry
Williams, Jack Sprague, and Clyde
The Aurora team participated in
the Oarkamo meet at Springfield,
which was won by Springfield Senior
High. We defeated Bolivar, Mt.
Vernon, Webb City, and Carthage, we
were defeated by Springfield Senior
High and Greenwood.
Then came the big event of the
year, the big eight golf meet held
at the Aurora golf course, which was
won by the Aurora team. This team
consisted of two Juniors and two soph
omores, the team in the new season has
the same four lettermen back and has
an excellent chance of winning the

There were two rallies early in the season on the nights
preceding the Mt. Vernon and Carthage games. These were held
with energetic yell leaders and many 'inspired' students and
teachers. There were short pep assemblies before all the other
games, either in the school or on the front steps.
The biggest and most enthusiastic rally of the year was
held November 22, the night before the Thanksgiving Day game
at Monett. A majority of the students met at the armory and
with a small band leading the way, a snake dance was formed
and proceeded up and down the main street. On the corner of
Madison and Olive, the crowd halted and listened to students
teachers, and townsmen as they urged the team to victory.
Then a Monett player in edlgy-was carried in as the band
played its own conception of a funeral march. Without the
usual sadness, he was placed in the middle of the street,
the last rites were delivered, and he was burned amid the
sounds of singing and cheering by the students.

THE KENNEL STAFF
The 1940 KENNEL was capably organized under the direction of the editor-in-
chief, Dorothy Snyder, and her assistants, Jacqueline Bierer, and Jim Gates.
It has been the desire of this year's staff to produce a book without a
definite theme, but one that would convey a true picture of the actual school
life of A. H. S. J
The financing of the annual seemed an impossible task, but our business
staff, headed by Kenneth-Reid and Gene Reid, has done an excellent piece of
work. It can be said, that this book would have been impossible, without the
assistance that they so ably obtained from the ever willing merchants and pro-
fessional men of our town.
Miss Eagleturger and Mr. Tripp, our sponsors, have been an invaluable aid
in guiding our work, and the entire staff has cooperated to efficiently perform
their tasks. Their work is praiseworthy, as it has been done outside the allot-
ted school day.
The Kennel Staff of 1940 takes greet pleasure in presenting to you this
book, which preserves in story and picture many pleasant memories, that other-
wise night grow dim and fade away with the years.

The senior class chose for its play
WKicked Out of Colleheu. lhe success
of the play was largely due to the work
and untiring efforts of their coaches,
Miss Eagleburger and Mr. Tripp. It was
given Friday, March 29.
Bootles Benbow, the most popular boy
in college, was so busy with inventing
a natent air brake, that he was 'kicked
out of college'. Dootles' father ar-
rived, and in order to win his father's
favor, Bootles introduced his disguised
classmate as his wife. His father gave
them some money and they moved to
Honeymoon Flats, where Bootles finished
the air brake drawings.
His mother arrived and Bootles' first
wife hed deserted him, so there was
nothing to do but find and present
another wife. At last the truth comes
out and Mr. Benbow again threatens to
disinherit his son. The agent of the
motor car company accepts Bootles' air
brake, and he is allowed to re-enter
college, and under these circumstances,
his father relents. Booties promises
them that soon he will introduce Miss
Jonquil Gray as his third wife.

The play 'Dotty and Daffyn was
given March 8 by the junior class.
The story is concerned with find-
ing a rich husband for Mrs. Phyllis
Travers- To convince Paxton Belmont
tHdL she ls only Z9 years of age, her
CBUEULSFS, Dotty and Daffy, were forc-
ed to dress as little girls. Their
boy friends, twin brothers, also im-
personate children and cause trouble
for all. Aunt Hester Harley, a man-
nater, arrives at th8 time when the
house is filled with men. She prom-
ised to make Phyllis and her daughters
heirs to ner will if they promise
never to marry. At the final curtain,
we find Phyllis planning to marry Hugh
Rand, a childhood sweetheart, and the
girls engaged to the twins. This
leaves Paxton to marry Aunt Hester,
whom he had deserted at the church
years before, when they had planned to

Friday, May 12. That was the day
we had all been looking forward to.
It wasn't bright and sunny as most
tales begin, but it was pouring
rain. This was no handicap to the
juniors of '39, however. They went
right ahead with their plansg and when
the seniors arrived that night, they
found the gymnasium cleverly decorated
to resemble a barn yard. Among the
other novelties, were found the typical
big red barn with.hay in the door, a
split rail fence with a quaint old
stile, a wishing well, and two very
alive baby goats.
lt was indeed a very fine recep-
tion and will be remembered always
by all who participated in making it
such a huge success.
ALL SCHOOL PARTIES
A new activity in our school, and
one that has been enthusiastically re-
ceived by the student body, is the all
school informal party.
The first one, held December 1, was
a victory party for the football boys
as Big Eight champions. Buss Williams
and Henry Williams. co-captains of
Aurora's champion Houn's, crowned Dcro
thy Snyder the football queen.
On February 9 the student council
sponsored a Valentine's party for the
entire student body. The committee
in charge conducted many entertaining
and novelty features, including a
grand march, matching half hearts with
the names of popular songs written on
them, pairing off as movie stars, and
using big paper hearts instead of
chairs in a novelty version of NGoirg
On April 5 the last party of the
year was held. Numerous games, includ-
ing chlnker checks, pinochle, bridge,
and several group games were enjoyed
by the students.
Music for all three occasions was
provided by playing records over the
public address system.
Mother and Daughter Tea
The annual mother and daughter
tea was held in the beautifully decor-
ated gymnasium October l2, 1939. The
decorations were typical of an autumn
scene. The tea table was the center
of festivity, with a bowl of polished
fruit and vegetables as the center
The Program was presented by girls
of the hlgh school with Dorcas New-
The home economics department was
in charge of the social hour. Soft
muslc was played throughout the tea.
