BLENDED TOGETHER TO FORM A MELODY ECHOING LIFE AT NORTHWESTERN STATE. WE DISCERN THE MIGHTY STORM OF REGISTRATION MADNESS. THE ORIEN- TATING CONFUSION OF FRESHMAN DAY. THE THRILLING THROB OF THE TECH INVASION. THE EFFERVESCENT EXCITEMENT OF THE STATE FAIR GAME. THE MELLOW FRIENDLINESS OF HOME- COMING DAY. THE TRIUMPHANT TRAGEDY OF RUSHING AND PLEDGING. AND THE DELIGHTFUL DILEMMA OF DANCES AND DATES; WE PRESENT YOU THE SCORE FOR THE ELECTRIFYING SONG IN THE FOLLOWING PAGES OF THE 1947 POTPOURRI.

North- western State College has made notable progress during the past year. A lack of funds has made the construction of permanent buildings impossible; but through the cooperation of the Federal Public Housing Authority and State officials, reasonably satisfactory temporary housing has been provided for the great influx of students which the end of the war brought to our campus. The scholarship of the faculty has been greatly improved and there is con- siderable evidence of an earnestness on the part of students that has not always been evident. The curriculum has been strengthened and expanded; an extra- curricular program planned to care for the needs and desires of all students is under way, and steps have been taken toward the establishment here of a graduate school for teachers. I would remind you that great learning institutions grow only where earnest, serious-minded students have constant contact with able and consecrated teachers. It is the responsibility of the State Board of Education and the administration of the college to provide an able, consecrated faculty. Slowly, perhaps, but surely all that can be done in that direction is being done at Northwestern State College. Further responsibility for the welfare and future of the institution rests with you and your successors, and it is your job and your responsibility to set the pattern. In order that the pattern may be a good one and to the end that there may grow in this soil and institution of learning in which all intelligent and fair-minded Louisianians may take pride, I urge you to devote much of your time and attention to scholarly pursuits; to actively identify yourselves with constructive and worth-while extra-curricular activities; to give considerable time and attention to the building of desirable and lasting friendships; and to display at all times and in all situations a friendly, co- operative spirit with other students and with the faculty and administration. - 1 PROFESSOR A.

I % Curatit MORGAN PEOPLES Advertising WAYNE MARTIN Associate Editor During 1946-47 and for the first time in over four years, the combination of slave and slave-driver whose duty it is to meet the deadline for the campus news sheet was a man. " Elevation " of the Sauce from the sphere of feminine editors to that of a masculine level was evidenced in the general tone of the paper for the year — hardhitting editorials, more sports news, fewer " Copy " adjectives — deletion of " Campus Clothesline " from the " Features of the Week " section. The literary nest, which each week sees the phe- nomenal growth of the colglomerate fledgling of editorial ideas and half-hatched news stories of Monday afternoons to the full-grown flamingo of the campus latest appearing on Saturday mornings, is located in South Wing of Fine Arts Building. In this journalistic den is written all of the news, gossip, features, and advertising which go to make up the inimitable " Sauce " of NSC — constant mirror of life on the Hill and ultimate clearing house for all student opinion, whether constructive, revolutionary, orchid- throwing or just plain " irate.

P. DOBSON Business Manager DON M. STOTHART Editor WILLIAM D. FLORY Associate Editor Some folks say that the months of the 1946-47 school session marched by in an orderly procession of September, October, November, December, etc., right through the lovely spring to the big " this is it " month of May. That ' s what some folks say however, the people who are responsible for this concoction of pictures, lay-outs, copy, blood, sweat and tears, known as the 1947 POTPOURRI, have a different tale to tell of the march of the months. For Editor Don Mike Stothart and Associate Editor Billy Flory, the year began ' way back last summer when they treked Nashville-ward to put on the layout paper of the Benson Printing Company their dream plans for the ' 47 book. A lot of these plans may have seemed slightly foreign to the Southern sunwarmed paper in Nashville, ' cause many of these patterns drifted into being in the snow banks of the Aleutian Islands where Corporal Stothart exercised his own unique system of War Recreation by making imaginary layouts, division pages, and feature shots for his " after the war " POTPOURRI. September saw the marshalling of the troops — Business Manager E. P. Dobson began the task of convincing the businessmen of North Louisiana that the ' 47 paragon of publications was the best spot for their advertising copy; Photographer George Atkinson began listening to shy coed ' s pleas of " make my hair look okay in the picture; I just couldn ' t do a thing with it " ; and Sports Editor Tom Phillips and LaDelle Sandifer (of concurrent Current Sauce fame) began pushing aside the players lor lineside views of Demon athletic activities. November and December got lost in a maze of many confusions — the eternal shortage of flash bulbs, the determination to make this look an exclusive student publication, the drafting of Demonistic art by Bob Weimar, Polly Polk, Peggy Casemore, and Jimmy Bonnette; the mad rush of staging the Fourth Annual Potpourri Ball at which Susan Jones Taylor was crowned a smilingly surprised " Miss Potpourri " ; and the constant scouting of the campus for delightful feature snapshots. At some time or times between January and April — nobody can conscientiously swear exactly when, Tom Davis and Bobbie Anthony racked their brains to find the right words for the copy of the book; Virginia Beazley and Bess Duncan thumbed through hundreds of pictures in an effort to put 1400 students in their proper places in the Class Section; Dena Crawford and Harrison Young became shades of old Athens in putting together the Greeks section; Ociel Goslin saw to the building of the features section; Jo Ray Murray lined up the Organiza- tions Section; and Faculty Adviser Orville Hanchey occasionally fought his way through the office hurricane of copy paper, pictures, proofs and staff peasants to ascertain that Stothart still held the paddle of the boat in a firm grip. Also, at some specified point along the chain of 120 days in these months, Lieutenant Governor Emile Verret and Attorney-General Fred S. LeBlanc took time off from their official duties to visit the campus for the purpose of choosing the 17 lovely ladies for the Beauty Section, and the male Student Body cast judicial vote naming Lallah Cunningham the first Darling of N. S. C. And so it went for many months — all the haggling, wrangling, planning and replanning which ended in mid-April when the 1947 POTPOURRI, for better or worse, was " put to bed " as Editor Stothart watched the automatic click-click of the printing press in Nashville and sang a howlingly joyful lullaby for his child as it rested in the iron cradle supplied by Benson. And so here it is — the finished product, right off the assembly line composed by the Editor, the Staff, Mr. Atkinson, the Shreveport Engraving Company, and the Benson Printing Company. For this line, the final 5 o ' clock whistle has blown — the year ' s work will or will not be paid for as the members of that line observe your appreciation glow or derogatory frown as you view the efforts of their labor. ORVILLE HANCHEY Faculty Adviser 19 4 7 The Star! compiling this conglomeration for the printer THE HONOR COURT The Student Honor Court was created this year for the purpose of building higher standards of citizen- ship on the campus among the men students and to equitably administer justice through a student spon- sored judicial tribunal. The Court has power to act in the event of violations or infractions of the rules which govern the conduct of men students on the campus. The Court ' s personnel for this year included Rich- ard L. Dean, Chief Justice; Tommy L. Bambrick, William A. McLoughlin, Al C. Willis, Senior As- sociate Justices and Wayne O. Martin, Alford G. Clark and Frank M. Lampkin, Junior Associate Jus- tices. The prosecution for the Court was carried on by Kenneth M. Dowty, Attorney General and Bob Weimar, Assistant Attorney General. The records for the Court were compiled by Horace A. Corley, Chief Clerk of Court; Marvin R. Carter, Deputy Clerk of Court and Aubrey T. Gray, Warrant OHicer. The Court is supervised by an Advisory Board with Dr. Joe Farrar as Chairman and including H. Lee Prather, Dean of Men, Dr. Joe N. Gerber, Director of Student Personnel and James W. Shultz, Assistant Dean. Projects for the year included the presentation of the first annual Freshman Awards to a number of students who in the opinion of the Court best exemplified the ideals of citizenship in their campus life during the past year. An Honor Code for the men students of the college was also officially adopted by the Court and representatives were sent to the Southwestern Conference on Student Govern- ment which met in Baton Rouge April 19. S-. THE CHDIR Directed by Don M. Glattly, the All-College Chorus and the College Singers have won acclaim for themselves by presenting choral music that has been beautiful and masterfully blended The chief performance of the groups this year was the presentation of Handel ' s " Messiah " at the Christmas season. The College Chorus is composed of 150 voices and the Singers include a blend of 45 voices. 49 THE BAND Under the direction of Bandmaster Dwight Davis, who returned to the campus this year, the Northwestern State College Band has completely overcome the difficulties of the war days. The band participated at all home football games and at the an nual State Fair game. They added color and real Demon spirit where- ever they went by their maneuvers from the field and their out- bursts of music to spur the cheering during the game. At the end of the football season the marching band converted and became the concert band. Their spring concert in the Fine Arts Auditorium was one of the most successful music events of the year. As summer approached and the days grew longer the band inaugurated a series of weekly open air concerts in the square between the Fine Arts and Field House. DEMDNAIRES The Demonaires organized in the fall of ' 45, continued this year as the official college dance band. The major change this year in the orchestra was the replacement of all girl members by men. K2333.1! The Demonaires, under the direction of John Shenaut, have furnished music for all of the all-college dances and the music for the majority of other private functions on the campus. The members of the Demonaires are: Herman Gauthier, saxophone; Bailey Winderweedle, saxophone; Richard Groome, saxophone; Gordon Kyle, saxo- phone; Paul Simmons, saxophone; John Parks, trombone; Paul Gains, trombone; Edward Palmer, trumpet; Donald Fontenot, trumpet; Wallace Van Sickle, trumpet; Jimmy Ponder, drums; James Smith, string bass; Frank Parker, piano. 51 N. S. C. DEBATE The team gets a few pointers during a practice debate. Still climbing upward from the mire of the war- time forensic lull to the shining level of pre-war days, nineteen Northwestern Statesmen participated in five tournaments during the 1946-47 season, and scored a team batting average of better that .500, winning several honor places. Billy Flory and Robert Weimar took second place honors in the Mid-South tourney at Conway, Ar- kansas and in the Twelfth Annual Louisiana Speech Tournament sponsored here by the Statesmen. In the field of individual events, Richard Dean copped first place in after-dinner speaking in the Baylor University Speech Festival; and in the tournament held on the local campus, Kenneth Dowty claimed second place in poetry reading, Betty Sue Allison scored second place in after-dinner speaking, and Marian Campbell won second place in women ' s radio speaking. In addition to participation in these tournaments, the local Statesmen were also represented at the East Central Tournament at Ada, Oklahoma and at the Southern Speech Tournament in Baton Rouge. 52 MISS CATHERINE WINTERS With " service " as its motto and its unfailing tra- dition, the Purple Jacket Club holds the distinction of being the oldest honor organization on the campus. lis membership is a complement of ten sorority and eleven non-sorority girls who serve the college as its official representatives and in other capacities whenever asked to do so. The girls who receive the high honor of being named to membership in the Club at the annual Spring Calling are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and loyalty to the Alma Mater. The aim of each Purple Jacket is the building of a greater Northwestern State College; to this end the group remains ready to serve.

Davis Players, the campus ' senior drama organi- zation, is composed of students invited to mem- bership on the basis of the quality of work done in the junior dramatic club, Northwestern State Players. The two productions of the ' 46- ' 47 sea- son were " The Late Christopher Bean, " pre- sented in the fall, and " The Servant in the House, " the spring production. The Northwestern St-te Players, the junior organization, is open to membership from the entire Student Body, and is the club from which Davis Players are chosen. Besides the major production cf the year, " Set It In Troy, " this club produced three one-act plays near the end of the year under student direction.

The first game of the season was a real trial for the Demons as they journeyed to Fayetteville to meet the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. The Score? The Demons didn ' t run off with the game — but neither did the Razorbacks. The second game was not a pleasing spectacle for the Demons and their supporters. Playing on a muddy field in a slow drizzle, the Demons bowed to the Lions of East Texas. The third game, however, ended in a victory for the Demons as they stomped the Louisiana College Wildcats at Alexandria. The fourth game, another defeat, came as the Demons journeyed to the Strawberry land to meet the Southeastern Lions at Hammond. Bounding back from the game with Southeastern, the Demons went to Shreveport to be defeated by one touchdown in the thriller of the season at the State Fair. The last five games, four played at home, added spice to the season. The Demons won three. The first home game was with Ouachita in which the Demons, scoring in every period of the game, came out with a margin of 5 touchdowns. In the seventh game of the season the Demons nosed out the Mississippi South- erners by a conversion. The winning streak of the Demons was broken in the eighth game when they journeyed away from home to meet the Mississippi State Maroons. The Demons suffered their only home loss when they played the Southwestern Bulldogs. The Bulldogs went home singing to the tune of a two-touch- down victory after a game that kept the spectators on the edge of their seats. The Demons rounded out the ' 46 season when they downed the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks. The defeat of the Lumberjacks boosted the Demons ' victories to four against six defeats, and brought to a close one of the stiffest schedules in Demon football history. UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS. 21; N.S.C., 14 Playing in the first game of the season, the Demons journeyed to Fayetteville, Arkansas, where they met the University of Arkansas, Southwestern Conference Champions, and upset all pre-game dope by virtually stomping the hard charging Razorbacks and battling them to a close score of 21 to 14. The locals amazed the overconfident Arkansas sup- porters when they held the Razorbacks scoreless throughout the first half. The iron defense of the Purple and White forward wall stopped the continual line plunges and end runs of the highly publicized Scott and Fowler throughout the first period but fell before the powerful onslaught launched by Holland and Hoff- man, whose play resulted in three tallies in the third quarter. Early in the last period of the game the inert Demon offense was unloosed and before the final whistle the locals had scored two touchdowns and were threaten- ing another. The first tally was made by " Dusty " Rhodes who sparked the Purple and White backfield and made several break-away runs against the strong Razorbacks that put the ball in scoring position. The second marker was made when Billy LeMier, reserve blocking back, caught a blocked punt and scampered Demon Coaching Staff, left to right: Alvin W.

C One week after the season ' s opener the Demons took to the road again to engage the East Texas Teachers of Commerce, Texas. The local gridmen entered the fray swelled with overconfidence and covered by bruises acquired in the same game with Arkansas; and even though favored in the contest, they fell before an aerial attack that netted the Texans 32 points. The game, which was played during a light rain on a soggy field, was a nip and tuck affair throughout the first period; but the Lions, paced by a passing, 210- pound back, unleased a passing attack that netted them three tallies before the half. The Demons were unable to recuperate from the Lefty Johnson punts the Demons out of trouble in the opener with Arkansas. Some sit down — some stand — while the Demons score against Stephen F. Austin. 19 to score at the half, and the Texans pushed over two more touchdowns before the final whistle. LOUISIANA COLLEGE, 0; N. S. C. 40 With rivalry and spirit running high after Louisiana College ' s artistic painting of the campus, Coach Turpin ' s gridmen, accompanied by a large portion of the student bcdy, traveled to Pineville to ruin the Louisiana College Homecoming by swamping the Wildcats 40 to in a one-sided conference encounter. This game, which marked the renewal of the tra- ditional meeting of the two teams, turned out to be a track meet for the locals, with touchdowns scored practically at will and in every quarter of the game. Coach Turpin used all of his reserves in the game by playing a total of 50 men. The Demons started the ball rolling early in the game when Bill Noonan capitalized on a blocked kick and covered the ball inside the opponents goal line for a touchdown. Also scoring in the first half were Roy Landry and Bill Quinn. They scored on 20 and 10 yard runs respectively. With the score 19 to at the half the Demons launched another scoring spree which netted them Nattily attired Freshmen give Demons a rousing boost in the first home game. Eobby Johnson " scats " around right end in fateful Tech game three more touchdowns. Bamrick, Powell and Loupe carried the oval for these tallies. SOUTHEASTERN COLLEGE. 13; N. S. C The Demons lost their first conference game one week after the swamping of Louisiana College to the Southeastern Lions at Hammond, in a game that was played in a driving rain and on a sloppy field. Due to the weather the game was defensive on the part of both teams but the Lions proved a bit stronger by pushing over two touchdowns in the last half, to defeat the Demons 13 to 0. The first half of the fray was primarily a punting and fumbling duel with neither team able to launch a threatening offensive. In the final period of the game the fleet Southeastern backs, Davis and Underwood, broke the Demon defense and scampered for touch- downs. A Southwesterner gets spilled in heartbreaking Homecoming classic Another Tech man hit the dust, but scored the winning touchdown on play. Tinsley kicking, Bambrick holding. Arkansas Razorbacks trying vainly to block. The local ' s offense against the team that later won the Louisiana Intercollegiate Conference was sparked by Carlton Johnson, who was the leading ground- gainer for the Demons. His continual line plunges and off-tackle runs were thought by many the most out- standing offensive efforts in the game. LOUISIANA TECH, 14; N. S. C 7 In the renewal of the traditional State Fair game with Louisiana Tech, the Demons lost the heartbreaker of the season, 14 to 7. The game was preceded with all of the gala rivalry of the old days, guarding the campus, capturing Tech invaders, special train to Shreveport, pep meeting, etc. The game began under a hot summer-like sun, with the stands filled practically to capacity. The first score was set up during the first period when Tech recovered the ball on the Demons ' 30-yard line and drove on to pay dirt with several line plays and a final end run. The jpjf extra point was good. The locals fought back when Bill Noonan took the ball on his own 30 and sprinted to the Tech 10, but the Demons failed to go over and the quarter ended. In the second quarter the Demons struck early through the air when Tommy Bambrick passed to " Dusty " Rhodes, who raced to the three before he was thrown out of bounds. Bambrick bucked the line for the necessary three yards that netted the Demons ' only touchdown. Tinsley made the conversion and tied the score. This was the Demons ' first successful attempt of the season to use aerial offense. In the same period Tech received the kickoff and after two plays tossed a long pass that was good for the second Bulldog touch- down. The extra point was good and Tech again took the lead, 14 to 7. All the scoring came during the first half, but only the stubborn Tech line held the many Demon attacks that came in the second half. OUCHITA COLLEGE, 14; N. S. C 47 After a not too successful five-game road stand, the Demons opened their home schedule by swamping the Ouachita Tigers from Arkadelphia, Arkansas, 47 to 14, in a night game that was played before one of the season ' s largest crowds. Coach Turpin ' s gridmen combined a powerful ground offense with an aerial attack to amass a net gain of 615 yards from scrimmage, their highest total gained during the season. Tommy Bambrick started the scoring fest early in the first quarter by bucking the Tiger line and carrying the ball over from the three-yard line. Also scoring in the first half were Noonan and Ouinn, Noonan on a pass from Johnson and Quinn on an end run. The Tigers scored one of their tallies in the first half on a pass play. Demons " just takin ' it easy " before the big battle with the Bulldogs The halftime ceremonies featured the annual fresh- man snake dance with the pajama-clad freshmen adding color to this very successful first home game. With the score 20 to 7 at the beginning of the third period, Bambrick, Noonan, and Quinn carried the pigskin over for four more tallies before the game ended. Quinn, reserve tailback, took the scoring honors by making three of the local ' s seven touchdowns in the fray. Oua- chita practically " saved face " by scoring one more touchdown on a pass play. MISSISSIPPI SOUTHERN. 6; N. S. C 7 Again the Purple and White played on the home field — and again they came out on the winning side. This time the ever charging Demons defeated the Southerners, the team that had been been beaten only by Auburn. Although rated above the Demons, the boys from This stubborn S. L. I. Bulldog stops Demon Drive And just lo think. Mr. Mouser — they all got in free Bill Noonan makes one of his sensational catches in the Tech game. (He made several more). Mississippi were outplayed throughout the entire game. All attempts at aerial offense proved to be unsuccessful; so the game resolved to plenty of grueling ground work. The Demons ' only touchdown came during the first quarter when " Dusty " Rhodes on a reverse from Tommy Bambrick sprinted 70 yards, one of the season ' s longest and most spectacular runs, to dodge six would- be tacklers and go over for a touchdown standing up. Harold Tinsley clinched the victory by converting the extra point. The Southerner ' s touchdown came during the third period. Lewis, one of the visiting ends, blocked a punt off the toe of Carlton Johnson, which was covered on the 20-yard line. The ball was then carried to the one- yard line and on the next play came the Southerner ' s only touchdown. The kick was bad for the conversion which handed the game to the Demons. The remainder of the game turned out to be a punting duel with Carlton Johnson keeping the Mississippians ' backs to the wall with his well educated left toe. MISSISSIPPI STATE. 27; N. S. C. Playing their second highly publicized University team, the Northwestern State football squad journeyed to Starkville, Mississippi, to meet the Mississippi State Maroons. The game, which was scheduled late in the season, was dropped by the Demons, 27 to 0. Unlike the Arkansas encounter, the Demons were unable to score a touchdown against this strong South- eastern Conference foe, and resorted to defensive play Hard charging Roy Landry adds his bit to the upset of Mississippi State. Given good down field blocking. Thompson charges through Tech ' s line. against the Maroons. Harold Tinsley, place-kick artist, turned out the stellar performance in the Purple and White forward wall. The Maroons, whose line-up contained such stars as Harper Davis, " Shorty " McWilliams, and Eagle Mater- lick proved to be too powerful for the Demons. The Mississippians scored their four touchdowns on scat- tered drives and the strong defense thrown up by the locals was comparatively stronger than the one by Auburn, Mississippi University and other university teams. STEPHEN F. AUSTIN. 6; N. S. C 27 The Demons added the finishing touches to the 1946 football season when they defeated the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks, 27 to 6. Neither team scored dur- ing the first quarter, but both came back to score during the second. The Demons made two, while the Lumber- jacks made only one. This was the Texans ' only tally, but the Demons succeeded in scoring also during the third and fourth periods. The first touchdown was carried over from the four-yard line by David White. Austin Wilson in the same period scored from the two- yard line. The third tally was made by John Tarlton when he intercepted a Lumberjack pass and sprinted 55 yards to pay dirt. The last touchdown came after a 20-yard pass from Bobby Johnson to James White, that carried the ball to the four-yard line. David White, after several line plunges, broke through the Lumberjack defense and scored. Not to be forgotten are Harold Tinsley ' s three conversions which added up to give the locals a final score of 27 points. SOUTHWESTERN COLLEGE. 13; N. S. C. Homecoming was a success. But the Homecoming football game was not, with the Demons dropping a hard-fought game 13 to before a packed stadium of alumni, students and visitors. The Demons, who the week before were bunged-up at the hands of the Mississippi State Maroons, lacked the defensive power that they had displayed in preced- ing games. The game was a nip and tuck affair throughout the first half with the locals holding the edge in yards gained from scrimmage, but the visitors unleased a hard Rhodes flying low on one of his long sprints driving ground offensive that netted them two touch- downs before the final whistle blew. Scoring for the Bulldogs were Budd and Fakier, who after a series of off-tackle plays and end runs carried the pigskin over for the decisive tallies of the contest. All in all, the Purple and White squad was not out- played, and the strong forward wall of the locals were rarely penetrated by the driving backs of the visiting eleven. Demon Captains.

Beginning his thirty-fourth continuous season as head basketball coach, H. Lee Prather began the year with practically the same line-up of the Dreced- ing season, and a large number of returned ex- perienced hardwood performers. Topping the list of players were: Ocie Richie, 1942-46 letterman and the only senior on the squad; Bob Dorcheus, also a two- year letterman; Claude Stoutamire, freshman, and a newcomer from the deep south in Florida; Wallace BASKETBALL Prather, son of the coach and a junior letterman from former years; Frank Lampkin, an experienced per- former who returned from the service to take up where he left off in 1943, and Ralph Ward, a former teammate of Prather and Richie at the college in pre- war days. This aggregation of experienced players shared top honors in the L. I. C. with Southwestern and Louisiana Tech, with each team winning eight and losing two conference games. Each of the three top teams split their two-game series with the other and the Demons clinched their portion of the honors by defeating Southwestern in the deciding game of the conference. Coach Prather ' s cagers began their season by dropping the opener to the Stephen F. Austin Lum- berjacks by a two-point margin. This defeat was promptly avenged two weeks later when the Demons reciprocated by edging the Lumberjacks out by two points. The second loss was at the hands of South- western, but the locals also avenged this defeat by This loss marked the second meeting of the two downing the Bulldogs in the decisive game of the strong quintets with the Northwestern State cagers conference. The heart-breaker of the season came downing the traditional rivals the preceding week when the Demons fell before the Tech Bulldogs in at Tech. The chief victim of the season for the the only home loss of the year and lost the chance Demons was the Centenary Gentlemen who were of being the sole possessor of the L. I. C. crown. thrice defeated by the locals. 143 The game at Tech began well — ended well. INTERCOLLEGIATE CONFERENCE At me completion of the regular season of scheduled games Coach Prather ' s cagemen were sporting a record that awarded them the possibility of representing the Louisiana district in two post-season tournaments. The first tournament was the Southern Intercollegiate Ath- letic Association basketball tourney in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and the locals clinched the invitation to this CO-CHAMPIONS cage meet by downing the Centenary Gentlemen 44 to 35 in the final scheduled game of the year. The Demons earned the right to represent their district at Kansas City in the National Intercollegiate Basketball Association tournament by defeating Loyola University of the South, 58 to 45, and Centenary, 38 to 36, in a three game play-off held here. Competing in the Bowling Green tourney, held March 5 through 8, the locals were defeated in the first gaem 82 to 50, by the Western Kentucky Teachers, who later went on to win their seventh consecutive S. I. A. A. basketball championship. Even though defeated in their first game, the locals placed two men on the all- S. I. A. A. tournament team. Claude Stoutamire, who was high-point man for the Demons in their game with the Kentuckians, and Ocie Richie, stellar center who Pralher chalks up two points Stoutamire " jumps " one in against the Lumberjacks Centenary plays like this all the time The Lumberjacks got lost in a " forest " scored 17 points in this game were placed on this mythical team. Immediately after Bowling Green play, the North- westerners traveled to Kansas City to participate in the N. I. B. A. tourney. Here they were also unsuccessful and were eliminated in the first round by Whittier College of Whittier, California, 70 to 56. Leading the Demons scoring in this game against the fast quintet from the west coast were Ocie Richie and Claude Stoutamire, who scored 17 and 13 points respectively. During the 1947 season the Demon basketball squad amassed a total of 1,224 points to their opponents 951, in twenty games. In the sixteen regularly scheduled games an impressive number of 1,022 points to the Dorcheus has to get high to sink one against Loyola opponents 718 points was garnered. In all games the average score per game for the locals was 61 to the opponents 47 and in the sixteen scheduled games the average was 63 to 44. Leading the individual scoring on the Northwestern State cage team was Ocie Richie, who hit the basket to the tune of 353 points in twenty games for an average of 17.5 points per contest. Richie ' s high scoring gained him first place honors in the L. I. C. and by sinking a total of 32 points in the game with Southeastern he set a new scoring record for a single game in the confer- ence. Claude Stoutamire was the second high scorer of the 1947 Purple and White, scoring 289 points during the entire season. Stoutamire and Richie gained individual honors dur- ing the season by gaining positions on the mythical S. I. A. A. conference and L. I. C. conference teams. Frank Lampkin was also placed on the L .1. C. team. Lampkin from center oi court, makes two points to add injury to insult 1947 SEASON N. S. C 55; Stephen F. Austin ... 57 N. S.

BASEBALL Tui the lirst season since 1941 when intercollegiate ill was suspended from the college athletic calen- dar because of the state of national emergency, North- western State fielded a baseball nine in college com- petitive baseball circles. Resuming his position as head coach of the Purple and White squad is Alvin W. " Cracker " Brown, mentor of the 1940 and ' 41 Demon nine. His 1947 aggregation of players include men with various ranges of experi- ence, and none having competed in college varsity ball. The twenty-nine man squad began workouts early in 1947 and opened their season agains t Centenary College March 29th. Playing a full schedule of sixteen conference games, the 1947 squad has on it ' s docket a four-game series with each of the competing L. I. C. teams. This tough schedule includes clashes with Louisiana College, Louisiana Tech, Southwestern, and Southeastern. As the POTPOURRI goes to press only two of the contests have been played with the locals winning both by large margins. In the first tilt they downed the Centenary Gentlemen, 15 to 2, and blasted the Louisiana College nine 16 to 2, in the second. With emphasis placed on batting power, the strong Demon contemporaries unleashed powerful first inning attacks that clinched the victories. Looking forward to continuing their domination of L. I. C. track, the 1947 Demon track squad began the season with a large group of freshman performers and a nucleus of eight men from the Louisiana Intercollegiate Conference Championship team of 1946. The 1947 season marks the twenty-first consecutive season that the local cindermen have been under the direction of Coach Harry " Rags " Turpin. Assisting Head Coach Turpin with the Purple and White squad are Coaches James Shultz and Walter Ledet. This year ' s squad faces a tough schedule which includes the Southwestern Relay Carnival at Lafayette, dual meets with L. S. U., and S. L. I. and the L. I. C. Conference meet in Alexandria. As the POTPOURRI goes to press the lqcals have competed in only one of these events, the Southwestern Relay Carnival, March 22. Competing against teams from L. S. U., Rice, Tulane, and Southwestern, the locals placed third in the meet. TRACK MEN AND WOMEN ' S ATHLETICS With the great number of returned male students to the campus, the men ' s intramural program, under the direction of Walter Ledet end Guy Nesom, wes successfully returned to the pre-war status. Much interest was shown by the men students for participation in the well rounded program. The clendar included ping pong, touch football, swimming, volleyball, handball, basketball, free- throws, horseshoes, badminton, tennis, track, softball and golf. The women ' s program of intramurcl activities was also broad- ened and was under the direction of Elizabeth Cunningham. A rcster of events relative to the men ' s intramural program was conducted throughout the year and provided an opportunity for all college coeds to participate. Both programs were conducted on a group competitive basis. - ll FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES First Row: Allison, Cade, Goslin, Glover, Anthony. Second Row: lines, Wilcox, Baird, Felscher, Hurley.

But as state schools came on the scene in increasing numbers, more and more the church saw its youth enter these schools. Because of vital concern for these potential leaders, the church began to follow its students to these state-owned and independent campuses. The Methodist Church follows its students through the Wesley Foundation. The Wesley Foundation is the Methodist church on the campus. Its program is fourfold — Worship, Community Service, World Friendship, and Recreation. Through state, regional, national, and international conferences Wesley Foundationers have an opportunity to know people of all nationalities and races. Their horizons are broadened through their fellowship with fellow students and with leaders of international renown. The local Wesley Foundation is for all students who wish to attend and all Methodists are members.

SCIENCE CLUB " Once in the dear dead days before the call, " (the draft, that is) the Science Club was organized by a qroup of industrious science students for various reasons — mainly scientific and social. But, then the wheels of war began to tuin and soon gained momentum so mighty that the campus — and the world for that matter — had time to do little else but to see that these wheels turned in the right direction. Consequently the Science Club died. However, the war ended, as most do, and in the fall of ' 46 several students became interested in the club and raised it from its tomb by drafting members, electing officers, and beginning regular meetings with lectures and experiments along the line of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
