TO THE BOYS. . .
another year is over, and again the students
of Bhfooking igh School have made us proud
our sc ol. Last fall you fellows began the
'year ' t by winning all but three football
gami . Two of you played so well you were
t dn the all conference team. During bas-
ketball season with your help, we advanced to

third' place in the conference. Those of you
who have not been in athletics have been busy
doing other things. Your FFA chapter again
was one of the most active in the state. You
have helped to make our music department
and our speech department outstanding.
You've also been ready and willing escorts for
the young ladies in our high school. Because
you,htve done all these things, and many
myre, we dedicate our l94O Bobcat to you.

TO THE GIRLS. . .
you have also come in for your share of
fame and honors during the school year. Your
Homemaking department took many honors
at the district meeting. Besides working hard
all year on CAA intramural games, you put on
an, excellent tumbling program for the as-
sembly. lf it were not for you the band, the
orchestra, and the chorus would be without
many of their fine musicians. You have been
responsible for much of the success of the
speech department. Our school paper has as
its editor a girl, and many of you are on either
the Bobcat or Broboca staff. You have been
resonsible for a greater part of the Brookings
High School social life. Because you, too,
have helped make us proud of our school, we
dedicate our l94O Bobcat to you.

Mr. Martin, the superintendent of Brook-
ings Schools, attended Kansas State College and
the University of Colorado. Our superintendent
is an ever present counselor and adviser, and is
to be found at all school functions. An active
Rotarian, Mr. Martin was elected District Cov-
ernor of that organization a year ago. Tennis and
golf are 'l. E's.' favorite outdoor sports.
M. A. Lynott, Brookings High School's own

and the University of Michigan. Aside from his
current diversion, the popular question and an-
swer program, "Mike," who is principal in our
high school, is a member of one of the downtown
bowling leagues and an ardent ping pong player.
During the summer we can find Mr. Lynott
playing a better than average game of tennis

BOARD Ol: EDUCATION
Our Board of Education is responsible
for the progressive methods and high
standards of our school. Each member
knows and is interested in schools and in
us. Each has at least one member of his

they are really just human beings as in-
dividuals. We introduce them.

if anyone asks, "Why does Mr. Cheever
prefer being photographed wearing a

There is an old saying, "advice is cheapf
but we seniors feel that the help our advisers
have given us this past year is priceless. With the
assistance of Mr. l-lerold and Miss Guy our
Class Night was one of the best ever held in
B. l-l- S. Miss Paulsen and Mr. Daniel helped plan
an interesting skip day and Senior breakfast.
Miss C-uy and Mr, l-lorrigan assisted us in select-
ing our announcements, flower, color and motto.
Confuscious say, "lt all depend, on how of-
ficers their duties attend." The senior class, re-
alizing the truth of the saying, entrusted the
duties of guiding senior class activities to the
following officers: pres., Hugh Barnettg v-pres.,
Betty Peterson: sec.-treas., Cecilia Moriartyl
social chairman, Virginia Whitehead. These
officers worked throughout the year with our
advisers trying to make senior life more interest-
ing for each member of the class.

BOBCAT FEATU RES P I CTU RES
Early last fall the Senior class chose
the two people who were to be editor
and business manager of our annual.
Dick Lott was selected as editor and
Olin C-ile, business manager. These two
people, with the help of the Bobcat's
advisers, Mr. Zick and Mr. Horrigan,
chose the rest of the staff.
This year the School Board bought a
camera for school use. Because of this,
most of this year's Bobcat pictures were
taken by the staff members.
The Bobcat, published by last year's
Senior class, won third place in the class
A division of South Dakota High School
Press Association contest.

by MELODlEg FROM THE STARS
Our L'Allegro Clnlib is an honorary mu-
sic society for girls. The membership is
selected by Miss Brewer, the vocal di-
rector. This year's twenty-nine members
were chosen from the entire vocal de-
partment. The purpose of our L'Allegro
is for special program singing.
Practice is scheduled for Mondays and
Wednesdays of every week from four to
five o'clock. Miss Mauch accompanies
our group at the piano.
We participated in the outstanding
musical events of the year. ln the annual
Christmas Candle Lighting Service, held
December 21, we featured a number ot
secular songs introducing the Christmas
Spirit. We also gave a Christmas program
for the assembly. Our greatest efforts
were spent on the Spring Music Festival
and Concert. These activities were the
high spots of our successful season. Be-
cause the Spring Festival date, April 19,
was also the date scheduled for the dis-
trict contest, our club did not enter in
the high school music contest this year.

HERE COME THE lVlAjORETTES
The baton-twirlers of Brookings High
School have put in a very successful
year. Our drum-major, Ronald Peterson,
has shown his classmates and the citi-
zens of Brookings some very fancy strut-
ting and baton-twirling between the
halves of football games and in parades.
Six majorettes helped Ronald put on the
spectacular performances, The major-
ettes are: Elaine Kleinsasser and Coral
Kukuk, sophomoresg Priscilla Hill and
Donna Dyste, juniors, and Marian Hall
and Dorothy Morrison, seniors. Ardis
jackson, our baby majorette was a pop-
ular attraction which added to the suc-
cess of the group. The majorettes were
instructed by Paul Tulga, former drum
major of B. H. S. Our major and major-
ettes appeared before us on the screen
in a newsreel, taken by Paramount Stu-
dios during Hobo Day. Priscilla and
Elaine led the Brookings County 4-H
club band at the State Fair in Huron.
A lot of credit is due our band. They
have worked very hard in school and
out, to help make our activities more
interesting. The formations made by the
band during the football season were
worked out by Mr. Franklin and Ronald.
Two of the formations made on Bobcat
day were the "B. H. S." and the figure
"arrow" for Pipestone.

THE ACTORS HAVE A CLUB
We, as members of the Dramatic
Club, have set our goal to further inter-
est and develop dramatic talent in our
high school. To become a member of this
club a student must have earned lOO
points either through taking part in a
play or by assisting on the production
The Dramatic Club has always been
an outstanding club in that it offers such
interesting programs. This year we were
especially fortunate in having several
authorities speak to us on the subject of
current events. We subscribe to "The
Thespianf' a national high school drama-
tics publication. At each meeting some
member gives a review of several of the
more interesting articles in the maga-
zine. ln the january issue a picture of
last year's All-School play was printed.
Before our Christmas vacation we
sponsored the annual Masquerade Ball.
Balloons, confetti, costumes, masks
made this a gay affair. Prizes were
awarded for the best costumes. Cecilia
Moriarty and Walters McCarty received
the prizes for the most original cos-
tumes, and Arnold Hoerber was award-
ed the prize for the funniest.
Miss Frances C-uy, the new dramatic
instructor, was our adviser this year.

MORES POPULI ROMANI STUDEMUS
Our Latin Club of 54 members meets
for the purpose of gaining a more
thorough knowledge of Roman life.
Each student must have Completed one
semester of Latin before he may become
a member of the club.
Following the customs of the Roman
State, the membership of our club is di-
vided into two groups. First-year stu-
dents are in the Plebeian classg advanced
students are in the Patrician class.
Although our meetings are held in
English, we mimic the Roman Republic
in our form of government and our
study. Our officers bear the titles of the
Roman officials. Our formal meetings
are Roman in nature.
This has been our biggest season both
in meetings and membership. Our club
year began with a gay roller skating
party. According to our constitution we
elected new officers at our second meet-
ing. Initiation was held at our March
meeting at which time twenty-five new
members entered the organization.
Each year our highest ranking fresh-
man student is awarded a pin- This
pin bearing the words "Pro lvleritou
signifies skill in translation and a thor-
ough knowledge of many Roman cus-
toms, This year the award was present-
ed to Elma Tulga.

NGUS ETUDIONS VIE DE FRANCE
Our French Club, of 25 members
under the sponsorship of Miss Eva Buck-
nam, has its meetings on the third
Tuesday of every month throughout the
school year. The purpose of the club is
to create and stimulate an interest in
French life and customs.
Programs for the club consisted of
travel-talks by different local persons
Mr. E. R. Bartling gave an interesting
talk on his trip east, and Prof. Carl
Christensen talked to the group on his
trip to Europe. Musical solos, reports by
members of the club on different phases
of French life, and active entertainment
such as games and folk dancing were
enjoyed by the members.
Our biggest undertaking this year was
the French Club Sweater Dance, which
we sponsored last fall. The dance, given
as a get-acquainted-party for the stu-
dents, proved most successful.
The club subscribes to "Le Petit journ-
al" a French newspaper consisting of a
variety of material clipped from the daily
Some of the members have correspond-
ed with French high school students of
their own age: however, the war situa-
tion has greatly interfered with corre-
spondence this year.

A NEW CLUB COMES TO LIFE
The Publications Club, a new organ-
ization this year, is composed of mem-
bers of the Broboca and Bobcat stafts
and any other students interested in
any phase of journalism.
We organized this group with this
idea in mind: to aid Students in solving
their journalistic problems. During the
year we were very fortunate in having
several speakers who are noted in the
field of journalism. These journalists
aided us by answering our many ques-
tions regarding this subject.
Several members from this organiza-
tion attended the South Dakota High
School Press Association convention at
the college and took an active part in the
round-table discussions ot editing papers
At the February meeting we initiated
six new members into the Quill and
Scroll, an lnternatioal Honor Society for
High School journalists, These students
were Dean Doner, Donna Dyste, De-
Vern Fromke, Shirley Graham and Dick
Some of our club activities during this
school year were helping to sponsor the
Red and Black pep feature for Bobcat
Day, and our journalism picnic.
