The Burke High School band, under Mr. Holleman's able supervision,
has made wonderful progress during the last two years, until it is now
one of the best bands in the Rosebud.
Because it is lacking in sufficient numbers to compete with the
higher class bands, it did not enter the music contest this year, but
took part in the music festival at Winner. Uniforms in the school
colors were purchased for the band this year.
Of the beginners' band, twenty members made such progress during
the year that they were added to the membership of the advanced band
for the music festival and local concert. .
James Gilksrson received a rating of Uexcellentn in trombone solo
in the district music contest, while Dean Matson rated ngoodu in cornlt

The glee club, under the direction of Katherine M. Jury, eang at
the dedication of the new higx school building and at the Christmas
program. Elhe club also took part in the Winner spring festival and
entered the district music contest, where they performed very credit-
ably. The girls also appeared at Baccalaureate and Commencement.
The club consists of twenty-eigmt girls, talnen from all the four
classes. This is the largest group after elimination that has ever
represented Burke High School.
In llalven, a manber of the club, entered the soprano solo divi-
eion of the music contest at Geddes.
Briese, Hildebrand, Jury
Under the direction of Mrs. Jury, the trio, consisting of Dor-
tha Briese, soprano, Rosella Hildebrand, second soprano, and Betty

In the sophomore year of this grou , Betty Jury served as pres-

Again during this year several dropped out and some new stu?
dents Joined, so that as juniors this group had 25 members. Hazel
Risewick was elected president, Edmund George vice-president, Luella
Leatherman secretary, and Marie McMullen treasurer. Mr. Holleman
sponsored this class.
During their senior year, the group elected Neta Smith presi-
dent, Dorothy Harman vice-president, and Luella Leatherman secretaf
ry-treasurer. With Mr. Hebert as sponsor, the class of 1938 was ac-
tive in all school functions. They presented NElmern, a one-act
comedy, in the band program, and nMill of the Godeu, a dramatic play
in three acts, as their senior play.
They have been an industrious and loyal group, and their in-
structors and schoolmates see them leave Burke High School with as
much sadness as the seniors themselves feel at leaving behind them
the happiest four years of their lives.

The Burke Bulldogs lived up to their name during the 1937 season.
They were outweighed by every team they played, but were never out-
fought. The line averaged 138 and the backfield 135. The good spirit
and good sportsmanship of the Burke Bulldogs could not be excelled by
that of any of their opponents.
Spring football practice was held this year for the first time in
several years. Much of the success of the football team Was due to
the splendid coaching of Mr. Hebert.

Debate was given in Burke High School as a semester course for
the first time in several years. Journalism and debating were com-
bined, and the BULLDOG HOHLER was put out by these same students.
Getting a late start, the debate class had time for only one
practice debate, with Colome, before the district contest.
The trurnament teams, selected from the ten members of the
class, were composed of James Gilkerson and Jhn Quinn, negative, and
Hazel Risewick and Dorothy Hagel, affirmative. Both teams were de-
feated in the tournament, but the negative team won special commen-
dation from the judge, even though it was not victorious.
Handicapped by lack of experience, the Burke basketball team
nevertheless played through a full season in 1938. The Bulldogs
played their last game with Fairfax in the district tournament.
Boys taking part in the tournament were Edmund George, Alvin Nozis-
ka, Junior Ticknor, Ivan Black, Linley Hinken, John Aaseth, William
Spitzenberger, and Duane Swartz.
Two men will be lost from the team next year, but the outlook
for a successful season in 1939 is bright.

The Journalism class this year took over the responsibility of
editing a successful school paper. At some time during the year,
each member of the class was given the opportunity of holding one of
the high positions on the staff, such as editor or feature writer.
The staff changed positions at the end of each six weeks period, so
that each member of the class had expgrience at writing in eveny de-
partment of the paper. The BULLDOG HOWLER was published weekly in
the local newspaper, the BURKE GAZETTE.
Jim Quinn, a member of the class who had served two terms as ed-
itor of the HOWLER, was elected vice-president of the newly-organized
Rosebud division of the South Iakota High School Press Association at
the meeting in Gregory in March.
Snith, Gilkerson, Lutt, Miss Schade
For the first time in several years, Burke took part in declam-
atory work. Dorothy Lutt and Henrietta Snith gave a humorous and a
dramatic selection, respectively, and James Gilkerson gave an ora-
torical selection. These students competed in the district de-
elamatory contest at Bonesteel, where James received a nsuperiorn
rating and Dorothy and Henrietta ratings of Ugoodu. The fine work
James did at Bonesteel entitled hhn to go to Chamberlain to compete
in the regional contest, where he received a Wgoodu rating.
The three cheerleaders, Margaret Eby, Betty Jury, and Anna Hin-
ken, are in charge of the pep club, which consists of students Who

This year marked the beginning of .Agriculture in the Burke High
School. It was realized several years ago that it was a very important
vocation, but not until the new high school was built was it possible
to organize an agricultural course.
During the year, the Agriculture I class has studied production of
all farm crops, also the varieties of each crop. The boys have studied
ways of controlling soil structure, moisture and erosion, with specific
soil management problems.
The Agriculture II boys studied animal husbandry, the production,
care, and management of all kinds of livestock,.1ivestock diseases, and
the Judging of all kinds of stock.
The agriculture shop is fitted with two large work tables, cabinet
space, and tools for almost any need, making it one of the best shops
in the Rosebud.
