Heading the administrative organization of the school is the Nampa
School Board, giving its best effort throughout the entire year for the
betterment of education.
Chairman W. H. Keim is finishing his eighth year on the Board and
second year as chairman.
Vice-chairman H. E. Meyers, a member of the Board for the past
five years, is manager of the Boise Valley Grain Growers' Association.
W. S. Anderson, manager of the Mountain States Telephone Company
in Nampa, has been a Board member four years.
B. G. Davies began his work with the Board in 1934. He is owner
of the Davies Hardware Company.
The newest member on the School Board is Edson Deal, appointed
to fill the vacancy left by E. W. Rising.
Elmer I. Eastman has been on the Board since 193 6. He is a salesman
for the Idaho Power Company.
Through the efficient leadership of the School Board the Nampa
school system has enjoyed a most successful year.
I. E. WALSH, Superintendent
U0 tffe Cfasi of 7938
Your class is about to complete its public school career, Have you enjoyed it? Did you
get your money's worth? Will it be of any particular value in the future? These, of course,
are very important questions in your mind: but the Nampa School District, Canyon County,
and State of Idaho might well ask will they get any good out of your public school career.
In plain language, how much are you worth to your community, county, and state? Your
education cost about S55 per year for the first eight years spent in school, or a total of 5440.
During the past four years, the average cost per year for your high school training has been
approximately 580, or a total of 5320. The grand total for the entire twelve years of public
schooling would amount on the above basis of calculation to approximately S760 for each
person in the Senior Class, Since there are 209 in the graduating class, the class then would
cost the taxpayers 209 times 515760 or S158,840. This is a sizable sum of money in any com-
munity. Will the class of 1938 return to society the 5158840 investment with interest, or
will this be a loss, and will it be just an additional burden to this community? Have the
taxpayers invested wisely?
We school teachers naturally feel that the investment has been very valuable and will
pay large returns to society as a whole. We expect each one of you to assume the re-
sponsibility for this investment, and, as a citizen of the United States, discharge this obligation
by making yourself competent, efficient, and successful in some line of work, Little can be
done, after all, for the individual who cannot and will not help himself. A youth without a
high school diploma must watch many opportunities pass him by. Many will seek additional
training in vocational schools, as apprentices on the job, and in colleges. Those of us who have
helped to direct your activities during the past twelve years hope that the future will bring
success and happiness to each member of the Class of 1938. We hope that whatever con-
tribution you may make to society in return for what society has done for you will reflect
to some extent the spirit and influence of the Nampa Public Schools.

fail go fo kgs grocery :Store
In response to the question. HWhy do you attend high school?" one invariably receives
the reply, "I Want to get an education." What does this reply mean? There is certainly a
difference in meaning when we compare the energetic student with the one who hates to go
May we liken this "getting an education" to going to a grocery store for groceries?
When we enter the store, we must assume an active interest in selecting or acquiring
groceries if We are to make any progress toward our goal of getting groceries. We must
further be willing to pay the price. In education we must make the selection of subjects,
having a Willingness to buy with the necessary effort and also assuming an attitude of Will-
ingness to carry home our purchases.
In selecting the groceries for any given home, we should take into consideration the
occupation of the individual who consumes the groceries. Heavier work will require a more
substantial diet. Courses in chemical or electrical engineering feven though the names may
sound prettyj require a solid training in mathematics and science.
This last thought should not cause us to feel that only one kind of food is essential,
We should ever remember that a balanced diet is always essential for one to have the
Further consideration along this line makes us realize that while pleasant to the taste,
neither candy nor cake should constitute our complete menu. Educationally, the properly
balanced individual needs a balanced diet of subject matter with some attention to the type
of work to be undertaken.
Lets go to the grocery store.

To govern and supervise all Nampa High
School activities is the purpose of the Student
Council. Membership in the organization is com-
posed of Student Body Oiticers, representatives
from each home room, and the class presidents.
Varied activities were carried on by this group.
The Council elected yell leaders and appointed a
committee to provide entertainment at the basket-
ball games. A committee to censor all assemblies
presented was selected from the Council.
Each month a Student Rotarian was elected. Sen-
ior boys who received this honor included Earl
Robinson, Dick Bermensolo, Bill Smith. Tom Bar-
rett, Bob Baldwin, Roy Howard, Warren Kincaid,
and Paul Mangum,
This group approved the formation of a Girls'
Athletic Association and accepted its constitution.
Orchestra members who earned the required num-
ber of points were granted small letters or pins.
The Council voted to have Home EC. and Spiz
members sell refreshments at the football games:
the Radio Club had this privilege at basketball en-
counters. Next year twenty per cent of the net
profits made from the sale of confections must be
turned over to the Student Council.
A controversy concerning the Nampa-Boise foot-
ball game was held, and the Council voted in
favor of playing Boise on Thanksgiving Day and
Caldwell on Armistice Day,
The Student Council has at all times tried to
maintain the high standards of Nampa High

Soft light and music combined
with a quaint colonial theme to
form a perfect setting for the 1938
Junior-Senior Prom held May 6.
Committees from the Junior Class
spared no thought nor effort in
planning a dance that would truly
honor their Senior guests.
Presidents of each class with
their partners led the grand march
after which dance programs clever-
ly decorated to carry out the col-
onial theme were given out.
Members of the Junior Class used
the vaudeville idea and produced an
extremely clever performance for
their class assembly.
Real "hill-billy" music and danc-
ing featured one of the numbers.
A square dance was so greatly ap-
preciated that it was repeated later
at an all-school entertainment held
at the junior High School Audi-
torium. A beauty contest with
some of the Junior boys as attrac-
tive models, served as a hilarious
finale to the program.
The Junior Class has taken its
place with the others in student ac-
tivity. The athletic field claimed
a large number of boys for baseball
and football, Track and tennis
proved to be favorite sports for
Other Juniors manifested an in-
terest in debate, public speaking,
and various clubs and organizations.
At the close of next year, Jun-
iors will be graduating Seniors and
better able to answer the question
expressed in their motto, "Today
we launchg where will we anchor?"

Flaunting tradition to the winds,
the Sophomores failed to give the
usual class dance this year. Since a
majority of the members expressed
a preference for an informal party,
this type of social was planned.
Students came dressed to carry out
the theme of a "hard time" gath-
ering. Decorations and programs
were also in keeping with this idea.
Sophomores were the first to pre-
sent a class assembly. Although it
was only February the audience
was treated to a breath of spring.
The Daphne Chorus, a group of
Sophomore boys dressed in fluffy
pastel ballet dresses, gracefully trip-
ped the light fantastic. Other num-
bers on the program included songs
by the high school quartet, a play,
and a reading.
It was not long before the Soph-
omores became adjusted to life in
Nampa High School and met their
responsibility in student activity.
Glee clubs, deelamation, athletics,
and organizations were favored
with a good representation from
Crimson and gold were the colors
chosen, and the Carnation was se-
lected for the class flower.
If the Sophomores live up to
their motto, i'Forward Alwaysf'
their progress and success in Nam-
pa High School is assured.

To be admitted to the National Honor So-
ciety, Sigma Chi Lambda, is one of the highest
honors to which Seniors of Nampa High
School can aspire.
Only those members of the Senior Class
having a three-year grade average of 4.3 per
cent are admitted. This means that they must
have a very high B average.
Scholarship, however, is not the only factor
considered. A student must excel in Charac-
ter, Leadership, and Service, also. These other
qualities are necessary in order that the knowl-
edge which a student has gained can be used
to the best advantage.
One must have courage to face life squarely
and honestly, and he should have the desire to
use his ability to lead to serve others rather
than himself. The purpose of the National
Honor Society is to foster and encourage these
At the close of the last school year eight
Juniors having the required qualifications were
admitted to the Society at a banquet held at
the Cheesbrough Cafe where they received their
Honor Society pins in a candle-lighting cere-
Eight more eligible Seniors were admitted
to the Society at the close of the first quarter
of this year at a party. As there was only one
other Senior who fulfilled the requirements,
she was initiated with the Juniors during the

The Quill and Scroll Club is an interna-
tional honorary society for high school jour-
At the beginning of the year there were only
three membersg at the close of a successful
year there were thirteen students in the Na-
tional society. Quill and Scroll pins were pre-
sented to the members during an assembly.
The second semester a local chapter was
formed to interest Juniors and Seniors of Nam-
pa High School in advancing the quality of the
high school yearbook and newspaper.
To gain admission into the local club, the
students had to be a member of either the
Growl or the Sage Staff, be recommended by
one of the publication advisers, and prepare a
paper-either a poem, play, news story, or
feature article to be read at a meeting of the
Any member of the local chapter could
make application for National membership by
submitting samples of his work to the National
Programs of the various meetings featured
outside speakers, talks by the students on dif-
ferent phases of journalism, and the papers
prepared by the applicants for membership.
Meetings were held the last Monday of each
month during the lunch hour. Members
brought sandwiches, and dessert was furnished
by a committee appointed for that purpose.
The aim of this organization is to create
more enthusiasm for Journalism and its various
branches. After its first year of actual activ-
ity, the club is satisfied that it has realized

Q'You are listening to the Silver Quarter
Hour sponsored by the Silver N Club of the
Nampa High School,', were the familiar words
heard each Monday evening over Radio Station
KFXD during the past school year.
The Silver N Club is a chapter of the Na-
tional Forensic League, an honorary society
comprised of over five hundred schools
throughout the country.
Each local chapter must have at least five
members in the League to retain membership.
Members from Nampa this year were Nona
Fern Coffman, Bonnie Mae Hill, Mary Alice
Carlow, Wileen Decker, Ralph McColm, Edith
Hancock, Miriam Eastly, Betty Lou Dowdle,
Virginia Stanley, Maxine Walker, and Kath-
The purpose of the club is to stimulate in-
terest in all forensic activities.
Weekly broadcasts over the local radio sta-
tion gave the members practical experience in
public speaking. The club not only gave its
own program twice a month but provided op-
portunities for other school clubs to broadcast.
Two socials with Caldwell were enjoyed dur-
ing the year. One was at Caldwell the first
semester, the other was given by the Nampa
group the last semester. These exchange enter-
tainments are annual affairs.
Silver N members feel that they have defi-
nitely accomplished their purpose, and the in-
creased interest exhibited by the school in for-
ensic activities makes it apparent.

Loyalty, graciousness, and friendliness are
some of the qualities embodied in the Code,
Slogan, and Purpose of the Girl Reserves.
Beginning the year's activities with the Fall
Conference at Wilder, the group had a full
year of social affairs, enjoyable meetings, and
various kinds of service work.
New members were initiated at the Chees-
brough Cafe after the annual caroling service
at Christmas time. Each pledge presented a
number on the program which was in the form
of a Major Bowes' Hour.
"Whistle While You Workf, from "Snow
White and the Seven Dwarfsf' was the novel
theme carried out for the Father-Daughter
Banquet. This affair proved to be one of the
most successful as well as one of the cleverest
events of the year.
The Recognition Service was held in con-
junction with the Mother-Daughter Tea in
Offering girls the opportunity to meet co-
workers from all over the state, have their com-

The Nampa High School Explorer Club was
founded in November 1937. The aim of the
club is to boost outdoor activities such as
camping, hiking, nature study, sailing, and
A long anticipated event of the club will
take place this summer when the group under-
takes a hike of about a week's duration.
Exploration projects completed during the
winter and early spring included trips to Owy-
hee County, Kuna Cave, and Old Fort Boise.
The official map-maker, Robert Hanson, and
photographers, Joe Oberst and Don Robertson,
have prepared a permanent record of all the
places visited. The club has erected road signs
showing the way to Kuna Cave.
A "shake downn trip to Squaw Creek was
the first on the club's itinerary. It was on this
trip that most of the member's idiosyncrasies
were shaken out.
The next trip was to Kuna Cave where all
were duly initiated into the club, and as a spe-
cial treat, were taken through "fat man's mis-

The first sailing trip aboard Lyle Stanfordys
palatial yacht was no howling success as tor-
rents of rain poured into the breakers. The sec-
ond attempt Was far more successful in spite
of a few duckings.
The next excursion was a trip to the College
of Idaho scientific laboratories. To put a fitting
climax to the school season the group jour-
neyed to Old Fort Boise where a most "roman-
tic" atmosphere prevailed, and furnished the
basis for an "Indian and Pioneers" game.
Roger Ray, James Johnson, Lyle Stanford,
John Walsh, and Cleon Cowin have all been ac-
tive in organizing and encouraging the club.

'QI will tell you of Pluvius Hammerstein's
atomic theory of the 7th dimension," speechi-
fied Valedictorian Elizabeth Sloat when she
was initiated into the Science Club. The object
of the initiation was to make a monkey out of
the initiate, but she chose a question to which
she could make up all the answers. As a result,
the ahi- learned scientists climbed a few
However, keeping in mind its purpose, the
club had many more formal discussions to pro-
mote interest and increase knowledge pertain-
ing to science.
Of the many subjects presented at the meet-
ings, the following are the most memorable:
the actual developing and printing of films in
the laboratory, an eerie demonstration of cold
light radiating from a beaker of clear liquid,
and a talk on the fundamentals and practical
usage of the spectroscope during which the
characteristic spectra of five substances were

The main project for the year was the con-
struction of an eight-inch reflecting telescope.
Two committees were appointed to take care of
this-an optical committee and Zl mounting
committee, however, most of the members
helped at one time or another.
A radio program presented in March fea-
tured humorous readings, an explanatory talk
on the history of the telescope under construc-
tion, and a short skit.
As a climax to the year's activities, a picnic
was held at Boise. The scientists enjoyed a day
of boating, swimming, and golfing which re-
lieved the strain of their overtime brain-cell

The activities of this club have been appar-
ent throughout the year. Besides the regular
meetings held twice a month, there was always
a group of inquisitive boys in the radio room
during the noon hour and after school.
Among other things, the club sold candy
and popcorn at the basketball games, broad-
casted a sound eifects play over station KFXD,
operated the amateur radio station, and took n
trip to Boise to visit KIDO,s new transmitter.
This year's amateur radio station consisted
of a transmitter built by the club and a re-
ceiver which was bought by the group.
There were six licensed amateur operators
this year including LaVerne Martin, instructor,

Excitement was added to the study of radio
by communications with other amateurs, which
radio vernacular terms "Hams,'. UYL fyoung
ladyj Hams" caused rather a stampede when
some of the boys would pick up such operators.
The Radio Club of 1937-38 did not leave a
full log book of "DX," the amateurs' name for
long distance radio communications, but it did
leave a fine new transmitter of modern design
to enable next year's radio class to break the
The most unusual event occurred when the
boys heard an SOS over the air. The location
of the sender could not be determined, how-

Girls interested in subjects relating to the
home received much benefit from their mem-
bership in the Home Economics Club of Nam-
pa High School.
Initiation of pledges-who numbered sixty-
one-was great sport for the nineteen old
members of the club. Among the unique initia-
tion devices were the tub of green snakes, a
roll in an old vinegar barrel, and a trip through
Two meetings were held each ,month-one

The club's purpose was to interestf girls in
subjects relating to Home Economics and to
give them a broader social development.
Every conceivable method for raising money
was tried by the members. Selling popcorn
balls and candy in the halls and having hot-
dog sales at the football games were some of
the schemes attempted.
Some of the memorable activities of the club
were the Christmas Party, the Mother-Daugh-
tcr Picnic held in May, and the annual Coed

The girls in the physical education classes
have long felt the need for some organization
which would bind them together and give them
the recognition they deserve for their work in
athletics. With this in view the two girls' phy-
sical education classes were called together and
the Girls' Athletic Association was organized.
The purpose of this association is to offer
girls a chance to earn a letter and to stimulate
a greater interest in athletics.
In the fall a system for earning points in
basketball, baseball, volleyball, speed ball, table
tennis, archery, and tennis was worked out by
the adviser and the officers.
Requirements for an "N" were to receive a
perfect grade on rule tests given over all of the
sports above, to play on at least four major
sports' teams in class or inter-class competition,
and to participate in a table tennis, archery, or
tennis tournament. A girl had to earn 800
points before she could Win a letter.
At the initiation party held in the spring the
losing teams in the inter-class volleyball and
basketball games furnished entertainment and
refreshments for the winning teams.
The sending of six representatives to the
Pow Wow Day in Boise was one of the out-
standing events. The girls who attended from
Nampa were Hilva Detton, Evelyn Musselman,
Margaret Van Houten, Connie Bicandi, Joseph-
ine Schuler, and Marylee Tucker.

Many and varied were the activities of La
Societe Francaise during the past year. Monthly
meetings were planned with the two-fold pur-
pose of being both instructive and entertaining.
Noel was ushered in with the traditional
Christmas Party at which members of the first
year French Classes were guests of the club.
A hilarious evening featuring a program and
games was brought to a close with the dis-
tribution of gifts by Pere Noel.
The main spring social event was the French
Banquet held April 2 at the High School. A
color scheme of yellow and green carried out
the motive, Au Printemps fspringtimej. The
club adopted a pin this year and this new em-
blem decorated the combination program and
place card. French toasts, songs, and dances
The French Club contributed a program to
the weekly Silver N broadcast. A portion of
the play "Le Voyage de M. Perrichonv was pre-
sented first in French and then repeated in
English. A group of French songs concluded
At the yearly assembly sponsored by the for-
eign language department, the French Club pre-

As Germany occupys an important place in
the world of today, current events provide a
large field for discussion and study. Conditions
which would seem otherwise remote are now of
major interest to students.
Club meetings were held every other Friday,
and programs were presented by members of
the club. Articles about Germany in current
magazines were read, and interesting talks were
Among the articles of special interest which
were read at the meetings was one concerning

At one of the most interesting meetings of
the year, Theron Labrum spoke of his recent

Another outstanding talk was given at one
of the meetings by the Reverend Kahle.

S. P. R. or "Senatus Populusque Roman-

Peoplei' is the name of the Nampa High School
All S. P. R. meetings were conducted in
a Roman atmosphere with the Pontifex Maxi-
mus, john Sewell, presiding. Programs were
prepared for each meeting by two Consuls. The
Summi kept track of the points the different
members earned during the year. Censor and
Quaestor acted as secretary and treasurer, re-
At the beginning of the year all first-year
students entered the club as slaves and were
auctioned off to second-year students by the
Aedile. When troubles arose between master
and slave, the Praetor fjudgej decided the case.
The purpose of the club was to afford its
members a chance to become better acquainted
with the Latin people and customs.
Throughout the year points were given for
reading books, appearing on the program, fur-
nishing refreshments, projects turned in by the
second-year students in the spring, and serving
as an officer.
Oneiof the outstanding features of the year's
program was the Senators' Banquet carried out
in truly Roman style in the spring. Only the
Senators, officers, and members earning 100
points were invited to this gathering.
Another springtime event long to be remem-
bered by those attending, was the Patricians'
Picnic held at Lakeview Park. This included
officers and members who had earned S0 points
during the year.
Campaigning was begun early this year for
the sale of the year book. Many novel devices
were used to break the ever present "sales re-
sistance of the prospective buyer."
While many students bought their Sages at
the first of the year when they purchased their
student body tickets, the campaign took care
of many more who had failed to take advantage
of the first opportunity.
Sage collectors were appointed for each home
room, and their peppy, enthusiastic talks
brought in many subscriptions.
Jane Woosley, a Senior and assistant business
manager of the Sage, sold an outstanding num-
ber of annuals-far surpassing all other collec-
Several novel advertising schemes were car-
ried out in promoting Sage sales. One of these,

a huge clock which was located near the east
entrance, attracted much attention in remind-
ing late comers that there were only a few days
left in which to purchase a Sage.
An overgrown thermometer, with mercury
rising as sales increased and degrees showing
the number of annuals sold, was hung in the
hall. Such novel devices added fervor and zest
to the sales campaign.
The Sage Staff presented John Church, last
year's Sage faculty business manager, with a
subscription to the 1938 Sage for a Christmas
A great deal of credit is due the Sage Collec-
tors for their efficient services in securing Sage
subscriptions, which after all, are the basis and
foundation for a successful year book.

Turning their talents to a different form of
speech, members of the Declamation Class ven-
tured forth at the beginning of the year to
participate in a puppetry demonstration, an art
requiring wooden actors, but human voices.
During Fire Prevention Week these students
combined their talents with the Junior High
School puppeteers in presenting a play written
by Juanita Dunn and Vieda LeBaron on the in-
struction of fire hazards. The play was pre-
sented at the Majestic Theater for the Nampa

Nampa High School won two excellents and
a superior in the District Declamation Festival,
two excellents and two superiors at the Na-
tional Forensic Meet, and one excellent at the
State Declamation Contest. Eleanor Carver,
twice a national entry, and Willard Aston, a
one-year winner, were both eligible to represent
Idaho at Wooster, Ohio, this spring in the hu-
morous and oratorical divisions respectively.
Other entries in the Twin Falls State Festi-
val, Emmett District Meet, and the Northwest-
ern N.F.L. District Tournament were Ralph
McColm, oratoryg Jack Dorman and Bill Gun-
ning, original oratoryg Juanita Dunn and Adel-
pha Snowberger, dramatic, Earl Andersen and
Willard Aston, extemporaneous, and Evona
Ord, humorous declaimer from the Junior High
School Declamation Class.
This class feels that it has completed a very
successful year, and hopes to accomplish as
much next year.
Debate season began this year with a turnout
of thirty-five students. Tryouts were held in
the school gymnasium, and the following school
squad was chosen: Willard Aston and Charles
Grimes, negative teamg Frank Estabrook and
Nona Fern Coffman, ahtirmativeg Jack Dor-
man, alternate, and Bonnie Mae Hill, manager.
The national question for high school debates
was the Unicameral System of Legislation.
More than twenty-five debates were held with
other schools. Fourteen different teams from
the debate class and the school squad took part
in these contests.
The District Tournament season opened
March 8 against Emmett. Debates against
Boise, the Nazarene Academy, Parma, Cald-
well, and Twin Falls followed. Nampa placed
second in the District Contest.
On April 7 and 8 the debate squad entered
the Northwestern District N.F.L. Tournament
at Caldwell against teams from Buhl, Burley,
Moscow, Caldwell, Butte, Mont., and Beverton,
Ore. In this tournament, Nampa tied for sec-
Another enterprise carried on by the debate
class was obtaining personal information from
authorities. More than sixty letters and ques-
tionnaires were sent out by the class to each of
the forty-eight state governors, to National and
State Oiiicials, and to research organizations.
The school squad and debate manager were
presented pins for their excellent work at the
close of the season. Plans for next year include
two barnstorming trips and competition in the
Northwest N.F.L. Tournament.

The 1938 Spiz Club closed another year
with its banner of pep held higher than before,
and a spirit of enthusiasm for constructive fun
unexcelled. The club activities of fostering pep
and good sportsmanship, and of cooperating to
promote all worthy school aims began by
pledging twenty-one new members.
Members sold candy at every football game,
gave the football men a memorable banquet,
presented a mock wedding at the good-will ex-
change assembly between Nampa and Boise,
and heightened enthusiasm in all worthy school
When the Senior Class eyed its deficit after
the Senior Dance, it was the Spiz girls who
stepped in to help them out of the red by sell-
ing colorful pompoms, which were much in
evidence at the Nampa-Caldwell game.
The Spiz Dance, with the novel theme of
Mother Goose Land, and the annual candle-
light banquet, planned for the Senior members
by the Sophomore and Junior Spizzers, were
outstanding events in the calendar of 1938.
The Spiz girls, in their regular uniforms of
red sweaters with red and blue emblems and
blue skirts, have lived up to their motto,
"Snappy Pep Insures Zestf, They are promi-

With the successful presentation of the stu-
dent body play, several one-act productions,
and the winning of the District Festival in Em-
mett March 25 and 26, the Dramatics Class of
Nampa High School has completed its most
successful season in several years.
Early in the fall a group of three one-act
plays-"The Family," a dramag "The Unicorn
and the Fish," a comedy, and "The Knave of
Hearts," a fantasy,-were presented at the
Junior High School Auditorium.
"The Night of January l6," a three-act
murder trial, was produced by the class for the
student body. This production was a great
success under the able direction of Miss Grace
Gorton and with the fine characterizations of
the players. Lois Patterson, john Rawlings,
Ralph McColm, Frances McFarland, John Sew-
all, and Willard Aston were the principals in
A portrayal of the complications on the av-
erage farm was shown in the serious drama
"Bread," This play, with Lois Patterson, Ralph
McColm, Frances McFarland, Virginia Stanley,
and Rosemary Smith taking part, won the dis-
trict contest and made a good showing at the
State Festival in Twin Falls, April IS and 16.
Late in the spring another group of plays
was presented at the High School Studio. The
plays given at this time included "Gratitude,"
a mystery play, "If Men Play Cards as Women
Do," a comedy, and "Heaven Will Protect the
Working Girl," a comedy.

The Orchestra, one of the branches of the
music department of Nampa High School, was
directed this year by Albert J. Tomkins, for-
merly of Boise.
Mr. Tomkins was the composer of our state
song, "Here We Have Idahof, a favorite with
all native Idahoans.
The thirty-piece orchestra composed of
Nampa High School's talented students pre-
sented several entertainments this year.
A series of music appreciation concerts was
given during the year.
One of the performances was the annual or-
chestra concert presented April 5. This was
the crowning effort of the orchestra. The pub-
lic especially enjoyed this yearly presentation.
This group of musicians cooperated with the
Band and Girls' Glee Club to present the Pep
Band Jubilee given the early part of the year.
The numbers given at this concert were of a
classical nature and gave the program of band
selections the needed variety.
The last major item on the Orchestra,s cal-
endar for 1937-38 was the District Music
Festival held April 22 and 23. Nampa was host
to visiting musicians from high schools through-
out southern Idaho.
For the first time in the history of Nampa
High School orchestra pins were awarded stu-
dents earning one hundred points or more. Pins
were earned by private practice, perfect attend-
ance, private lessons, attendance at concerts,
and by personal appearances before the public
as soloist or in a small ensemble. More than
twenty members were presented with these pins.

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
To learn correction diction, efficient note reading.
and harmonious blending has been the aim of the
Girls' Glee Club this year.
The first performance of the year was in October
when the girls took part in a Music Appreciation
Series conducted for the grade-school children at the
Iunior High School Gymnasium.
Collaborating with the Band and Orchestra, their
second performance, December 3, was one of the
most exceptional on the year's program.
Early in April the group journeyed to Caldwell to
sing for the College of Idaho student body.
In the spring the Girls' Glee Club took an active
part in the District Music Festival. to which Nampa
was host this year.
Frances Conley and Betty Parker were accompa-
nists for this group.
Opportunity for girls wishing additional voice
training was provided this year when a special
Girls' Chorus was instituted.
During the early part of the year the Chorus sang
in the grade school Music Appreciation Series. The
group also cooperated with other music organiza-
tions of the school to present two concerts-one
February 3, and the other April 4.
In March these girls represented the Nampa High
School Music Department in a concert at the College
During the annual District Music Festival the
Girls' Chorus offered several selections.
Since many of the girls in the Chorus are Iuniors
and Sophomores, high hopes are held by K, Boyd
Remley for next year's organization.

and the wish to sing for pleasure forty boys formed
the Boys' Glee Club.
The entire year has been spent working out new
songs and singing old ones for enjoyment.
Although the boys prepared a concert to be given
in collaboration with the Girls' Glee Club, they
were unable to present it because of conflicting
At the beginning of the second semester a few
of the members transferred into the mixed chorus
to aid with the operetta, iisouth in Sonora," which
was not presented, however.
The Boys' Glee Club was accompanied this year
by Virginia Wilson.
Providing appropriate music for all occasions
was the goal of the Mixed Chorus. Sacred, secular,
and popular numbers were learned by the forty-
"South in Sonora," a Mexican operetta, was
planned to be the highlight of the chorus' musical
activity, However, the performance was not given
as there was not sufficient time for practice.
On April 22 and 23 Nampa was host to the Dis-
trict Musical Festival where the Mixed Chorus
made a fine showing.
Seniors of the Mixed Chorus offered various
selections at the Commencement Exercises.
All of these groups have been trained by K.
Boyd Remley, and it is through his effort that the
vocal music department has been most outstanding

Bulldog tenacity once again triumphed as the
Nampa squad plowed through a successful sea-
son into the Big-Ten Championship Game.
From the Bulldog squad, which contained
few veterans and was a very light bunch, Coach
White, Nampa's new mentor from Salida, Colo-
rado, developed a cracker-jack team.
Opening the season with Vale, the boys
romped out with an easy victory of 34 to 0.
Going up against stiffer resistance the fol-
lowing week, the Nampans defeated St. Jo-
seph's Academy 12 to 0.
The Bulldogs emerged from an entanglement
with a heavier Pocatello team on the short end
of a 12 to 6 score. The red and blue defenders
made the first touchdown of the game in the
third quarter but lost to the towering Indians
who slapped over two completed passes for 12
points in the last quarter.
From the first defeat the team came back
stronger and more prepared to flatten Rupert
and Filer 32 to 0 and 33 to 6, respectively.
The Bulldogs, first out-of-town game was at
Lewiston, where the two teams clashed the

When the team returned, preparations were
begun for the Cougar clash, Armistice Day. It
was the fourth Conference tilt and Caldwell
had taken it for three years, but a powerful re-
venge that afternoon brought to the Bulldogs
a victory of 18 to 6.
Spurred on by many fans, the Nampa Bull-
dogs reached the Championship Game with
their last and worst enemy of the season--the
Braves. For the second time in six years the
Braves managed to sink tomahawks deep into
Bulldog scalps in a heart-breaking defeat of

Initiative, force, determination, and tenacity
-these qualities constitute the FOOTBALL
SPIRIT of Nampa High School. The Bullpups
under the successful drilling of Coach Otto
Wagner and Pat Brown, swung into the 1937
tide to finish with three victories, several ties,
and onlyitwo defeats.
For an inexperienced team this year,s Pups
displayed a very classy brand of football! all
They played their first battle of the season
a bit out of class when they invaded the Mid-
dleton Varsity Squad to finish on the low end
of a 39 to 0 score.
The following week the Frosh-Soph clashed
with the Emmett second team and were again
held scoreless while the opponents ran across
two touchdowns, making the final score 13 to 0.
In their next three games played on the home
field at the Rodeo Park, the tables turned net-
ting victories for the Pups in a Winning streak
that totaled S1 points to their opponents 0. The
scores were Star 20 to 0, Caldwell 6 to 0, and
Homedale 25 to 0.
The last two battles were with Caldwell and
the Baby Braves of Boise in which they fought
to a scoreless tie. The Pups were in scoring ter-
ritory many times, but unfortunately lacked
the Winning punch.
Much promising material made up this squad
and will be used next year. Five Freshmen
played on the first team, some of whom may re-
turn to the Sophomore team next year, and some
of whom may attempt the Varsity Squad.
The Nampa Bullpups came through the
1937-38 season successfully by winning more
games than they lost. Although they were out-
scored by their opponents by a very few points,
they chalked up nine victories against seven
close, heart-breaking defeats.
They started out with six consecutive vic-
tories in a desperate attempt to sweep the sea-
son undefeated, but were somewhat shattered
by the loss of three regulars-XVally Howard,
Bob Simmons, and Eugene Sullivan-who were
advanced to the Varsity Quint. Nevertheless,
Coach Odie Pederson shaped up a team which
did credit to Nampa High School.
The team met its first defeat in the seventh
game, losing to the Kittens on the Caldwell
floor 13 toll.
Those doing outstanding work during the
season were Leonard Williams, Fielding Abbott,
Warren Wyatt, Allen Perry, and Bill Mangum.
These and many others, in upholding the Bull-
dog Spirit of Nampa High School, fought like
the big boys to the very last minute.
The squad was handicapped this year by the
lack of a few Freshmen which, from year to
year, usually compose part of the Sophomore
The Freshmen this year had a separate team
from the Sophomores and were coached by Pat
Brown of the Junior High School. They won
many games and some of them will try out for
the Varsity next year although most of them
will be out for the Sophomore team. Among
the promising Freshmen were john Christenson,
junior LaLande, Howard Clark, Albert Gard-
ner, and Reed Kilmer.

Nampa's Varsity Basketball Squad entered
into stiff competition this year and, no doubt,
hurled the pill through the toughest series ever
scheduled in the history of Nampa's Bulldog
The boys were slow in getting started, but
they broke the jinx in the first game of their
five-day barnstorming tour, and nosed out the
Rupert Pirates 27 to 24 to take their first vic-
tory after six straight defeats.
The second and third nights of the tour the
team dropped games to the lanky Pocatello five
and the Idaho Falls 1937 State Champions.
However, on the final night the squad cap-
tured the Twin Falls Bruins after leading the
entire game and came home even-up.
Eight straight victories were then swept into
the bag before the boys were downed by the

Track season began early this year when Vic
Wfetzel, track coach, started shaping the track
boys the latter part of February.
The squad opened the season on the local
field with a dual meet with Meridian. Captur-
ing first place in all events except the half mile,
the Bulldogs downed the Meridian men 102
The team next met Caldwell in a two day
dual in the Caldwell Stadium. The first
half of the meet, which ended the first day,
found Nampa leading by a close margin. On
the second day the Bulldogs coasted on to vic-
tory and took all firsts except the shot-put.
The meet ended with Nampa leading 259-206.
Bob Baldwin, Roscoe Brady, Curtis Kelley,
and Roy Howard were the lettermen back, and
they did oustanding work all season. From the
new-comers who turned out this year, many
made their letters and were among the high
scorers. The more outstanding were August
Storkman, Jack Rodwell, Earl Robinson, and
Edward Sanderson. Others who earned letters
and made points were Ben Barham, Bob Heith-
ecker, Bill Higgins, Glen Detton, Jim Jausoro,
and Allen Perry.
The squad competed in the triangle meet at
Boise April 23, with Boise, Nampa, and Cald-
well participating. They then took part in the
Sub-District Track and Field Meet April 30,
and the District Meet, May 7.
Many Nampans qualified for the Inter-Dis-
trict competition May 14. Since state meets
were abolished this year, three Inter-District
Meets were held throughout the state. When a
previous record was broken in any of the three
meets, the new one was considered a State record.
Members of the boxing and wrestling squads
walked off with top honors for the 1937-38
season. Four wrestling matches and a like num-
ber of boxing bouts were scheduled, resulting in
Nampa was slated against Payette for the
first match which was held in Nampa. The
victors in this fray were Dehlin, Riedel, and
The second home match featured a squad
from Harper, Oregon. Dehlin, Scott, and Hahn
won a draw while Riedel won his bout.
A return match followed with Nampa mats-
men iourneying to Harper. The results of this
contest were draws for Scott and Hahn, and
another win for Riedel while Dehlin lost his
match. In an exhibition match which followed,
a draw was accorded Bill Stevens.
BGXI NG AND WRESTLING
The wind-up wrestling match of the season
was held in Payette. Dehlin and Hahn won de-
cisions and Allen Brown drew in a boxing
match. Injuries prevented either Riedel or
Scott from taking part.
In the boxing bout with Boise the rivals
drew. Riedel decisioned Ellis of Boise. In a very
close bout Blickfeldt of the Bulldog squad was
decisioned by Jacobsen of Boise. Brown and
Hahn were unable to take part as they could
not be matched in weight.
Prospects loom brightly ahead for Coach
George Miller, Next yearls team will include
such successful contenders as Riedel, Stevens,
Brown, Hahn, Smith, and Blickfeldt. Two de-
parting seniors whose good Work will be greatly
missed next year are Dehlin and Scott.

The girls, with the traditional Bulldog spirit,
practiced faithfully many hours. Tuesdays and
Thursdays were designated as "girls' days" on
the High School Courts.
The squad met many opposing teams in pre-
paration for the State Meet in May. Five
matches in the fall gave the team some experi-
ence. Additional matches were played in the
There were few veterans back, but there was
much promising material developed in readiness
for next year.
To Miss Evelyn Hagelin, coach, should go
much of the credit for the team's standing.
The Boys' Tennis Team, after an enormous
turnout, hit the 1938 season with a bang.
Strenuous work-outs on the new courts, under
the coaching of George Miller, developed a
squad hard to beat.
The most outstanding netters of the squad
were Paul Mangum and Horner Powell, both
playing their second year as veterans and mak-
ing up the strong boys' doubles team.
Bob Matthews, playing his third year with
another to go, Wally Howard, and Warren
Kincaid displayed outstanding ability in all the

Golf for everyone-High School girls, boys,
and teachers was arranged for this year.
Not only did the boys, with a large turnout
of ten golfers, play their ordinary share, but so
also did a newly organized girls' team. Even
the teachers of Nampa school scheduled Sun-
day afternoon matches with teachers of other
The girls, however, even though they prac-
ticed faithfully, entered no contests this year.
This group, composed chiefly of Juniors and
Sophomores, will undoubtedly see action later.
Of outstanding importance to golfers of
Nampa and southwestern Idaho was the Dis-
trict Tournament held at the local Broadmoor
Course, May 14. On that day, four-man teams
from all nearby schools played thirty-six holes

of medal golf to a championship. Nampa's four
veteran golfers made a really fine showing.
Increasing interest in this comparatively new
addition to the sports curriculum led to the ap-
pointment of a golf committee at a meeting of
the Southwestern Idaho Athletic Association.
C. C. Cowin acted as chairman of the group.
The District Tournament was largely the re-
sult of Mr. Cowin's efforts toward that end.
The contest, held in Nampa this year, is be-
lieved to be the first official High School Golf
Tournament ever held in the state of Idaho, and
is certainly the first contest in which a trophy
has been awarded the winning team.
It was a happy year for Nampa High School
golfers, and promise of another successful sea-
son is well grounded as three two-year letter-
men will return next year.
