IGER TALES 



VOLUME I 



ARKANSAS CITY, KANSAS, FEBRUARY, 23, 1945 



NUMBER 1 



China Comes to Ark City 

An audience of midwesterners 
gathered at Arkansas City's Junior 
High auditorium last St. Valentine's 
eve to live vicariously, for a few 
moments, the life of one of the 
world's oldest civilized nations — 
China. And Col. M. Thomas Tchou, 
the man who represented China's 
life, would have been quite at ease 
with St. Valentine had they been 
contemporaries. 

Col. Tchou is thoroughly cosmo- 
politan, brilliant and scholarly; and 
his viewpoints emphasized tolerance, 
friendliness, and practicality. 

He stressed the fact that interna- 
tional relationships must have a 
moral basis, and drew a forceful 
analogy between local and world 
citizenship. He asked his audience 
to assume that a lady, walking down 
Summit Street, was accosted by a 
gangster who demanded her jewels. 

"Suppose," lie said, "that the citi- 
zens of the town stood by and ex- 
pressed their sympathy, but took no 
steps to recover the jewels. What 
would happen? We all know. Soon 
Arkansas City would be a gangster's 
paradise. Law and authority would 
be ignored." 

The World Community, Col. Tchou 
asserted, operates on the same prin- 
ciple which guides a locality. The 
citizens of the world must assume 
the responsibility of policing them- 
selves to prevent such international 
thievery as Italy and Japan commit- 
ted in Ethiopia and Manchuria while 
the rest of the world said, "Too 
bad" . . . and did nothing. 



Junior College Revels 

Last Thursday night the Junior 
College shed some of its scholarly 
daytime dignity, and indulged in a 
spot of garrulous gayety. 

Our War Stamp and Bond contest 
had terminated with the boys con- 
siderably on the short side, and, 
following their agreement to the let- 
ter, they appointed Harold Rice 
chairman of a one-man committee 
to prepare a party for the college's

OUR NEWSPAPER IS BORN 



Current History Test 

Time Magazine's general test on 
current affairs of the last four 
months of 194 4 was given in the 
Junior College Wednesday, Febru- 
ary 21. This test is being sent out 
to universities and colleges all over 
the country. The test is given at 
each school separately, and the stu- 
dent in each school who makes the 
highest grade will have a choice of 
a prize of either a book, not to ex- 
ceed five dollars in value, or a twelve 
inch globe. 



Forensic Contest 

The Thirteenth Annual Forensic 
and Literary contest will be con- 
ducted in Winfield at St. John's Col- 
lege on Mai eh 9. The Junior Col- 
lege expects to participate in this 
event by. sending entrants for sever- 
al of its divisions. 



TALES Staff Meeting 






A meeting of the newspaper staff 
was held February 5, to discuss as- 
signments, ideas, and other problems 
facing the Newspaper. 

The meeting got off to a grand 
start with only one difficulty, the 
Editor wasn't there. The conference 
was scheduled for 7:30 p. m. Every- 
body was in a dither. "Where's Ray- 
mond?" That was the question of 
the hour. Now Raymond Jewett, 
the editor, made a special effort to 
remind everybody to be sure and at- 
tend the meeting. The staff was 
becoming very sore. Matching pen- 
nies had become less interesting. 
Finally a delegation of one, Jess 
Griffin, was sent to the home of the 
illustrious editor. The gentleman 
was found hard at work, studying 
Spanish — of all the dopes! His only 
excuse was that he had forgotten 
everything else. 

Refreshments were served at the 
conclusion of the meeting. 



TIGER TALES Selected 
As New ACJC Newspaper 



Our Newspaper is born. Three 
weeks ago, we were given the chance 
to decide whether or not we would 
contribute our time and ability to 
a newspaper dedicated to our ideas 
and hopes. A large minority of us 
thought it was impossible. That min- 
ority still may be proved right. 

Some of that minority are now 
giving their time to the support of 
this paper in spite of their convic- 
tions. But no matter how sporting 
the minority takes the results of the 
process, it remains for the majority 
to contribute themselves to the pa- 
per and its purposes before it can 
become worthwhile. 

We are determined with gritted 
teyth'tnar'this paper shall not be 
a Ni ce-Nelly kid p aper, and that its 
contents shall be imbued with the 
spirit of the Junior College Student. 

The articles it carries will be lim- 
ited only by the common sens^ and 
decency of the student body and not 
by a sponsor's decree." 

It will be a crusader^ ji^ mirror, 
an initiator and a follower. It will 
be 'whatever the students "will that 
it shall be. • * 

All of our articles and features 
will be turned to your mood. They 
will, in fact, be your production and 
your responsibility. 

JVe will print stories or poem s 
you /ve written , jokes that you've lik- 
ed, opinions you wan t_Jto_ air and 
ji^ws_„thajLj^oiLk-njQW. In short, we 
will print anything that '? interest 1 - 
ing~"a n d gr in table. You divulge it; 
we'll cir culate it. 

We are asking everyone of yor 
to write your thoughts and opin- 
ions. It is the duty of a newspaper 
staff to make itself a mirror for 
those whom it represents. But some- 
one has to provide a face for the 
mirror to reflect.

ERVICE COMMAND 



It has become cliche to say that 
we here at home have a duty to the 
boys and girls who were once with 
us and who now wear Uncle Sam's 
Olive Drab and Navy Blue. 

But the fact, unlike the state- 
ment, is never hackneyed. 

Tiger Tales is going to run a col- 
umn devoted to those kids we knew. 
We're going to keep ourselves in 
touch with them and keep them in 
touch with each other. But most 
of all we'll try to brighten a few 
moments for them. 

We're going to send the paper to 
as many of the boys as we can find. 
If any of you have any addresses 
give them to Harold Rice, who is 
editing this column, or to anyone on 
the staff and it will get to him. 

Here's a short ex'ract that will 
give you a notion <>i what we want. 
From Great Lak< t, i-.oiues a letter 
from the ed's big brother saying: 

"We're just a bunch of excited 
kids today. Just thirty minutes ago 
we won the Regimental Rooster. We 
think we're pretty good now and in- 
tend to let everybody know about it. 
Anyway, we're on the books as the 
best company in the regiment." 



That "Rooster," according to in- 
formation gleaned from James Mc- 
Cormick when he was home on post- 
boot furlough, is a flag given to a 
company for superiority in cleanli- 
ness, efficiency, and attention to or- 
ders. 



Mac, incidentally, was really in the 
pink when he came back. He was 
all muscle and virility in those snug 
blues. That jaunty white cap which 
he wore, rather than the blue "flat 
hat" he was supposed to wear, top- 
ped him off like snow on Pikes Peak. 



A letter from Clarence L. R. Ford 
in England says, "I'm in the hos- 
pital sorta getting over a dose of 
lead poisoning. Some Heinie was 
improving his marksmanship and he 
practised on me. But it isn't so 
bad. At least, I'm going to live." 
That seems so very typical of the 
understatements we hear from these 
boys who cannot tell us anything 
that isn't an understatement. 

Clarence tells us that the man who 
undressed him when the aid men 
brought him in was Lawrence Swaim, 



a boy lie had known here in Arkan- 
sas City. 



Apprentice Seaman Bill Clark is 
expected to arrive Saturday after- 
noon to spend five days visiting with 
his parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. J. 
Clark. He is stationed at Marquette 
University at Milwaukee, Wis., with 
the Navy V-12 unit there. He will 
complete his V-12 training in June. 
Seaman Clark attended the local 
junior college before entering the 
Navy. 



Apprentice Seaman Kurt Galle, son 
of Mr. and Mrs. K. R. Galle, is ex- 
pected to arrive Saturday for a short 
visit at the home of his parents. He 
is stationed at Purdue University at 
LaFayette, Ind., and will return to 
Purdue at (lie end of Mis leave to 
continue his training in the Navy 
V-12 program. 



Apprentice Seaman Virgil Holdredge 
will arrive over the week-end from 
Washburn College in Topeka to 
spend a leave visiting with his par- 
ents, Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Holdredge, 
and friends in the city. He has been 
attending Washburn as part of his 
V-12 training, but is now being 
transferred to Princeton, N. J., where 
he will take midshipman's training 
for the next four months. 



Apprentice Seaman Robert Eus- 
tice will arrive on Sunday to spend 
a leave visiting with his parents, Mr. 
and Mrs. Tom Eustice, and friends 
here. He is attending Minnesota 
University in Minneapolis as part of 
his Navy V-12 training. 

Radio Technician Second Class 
Kermit Sandefur will leave Sunday 
for Mare Island, Cal., after spending 
a leave visiting with his parents, Mr. 
and Mrs. Tom Sandefur. He was 
graduated from the high school with 
the class of '43. 

Ensign Bill Padgett visited in the 
city over the last week-end while on 
his way to the West Coast. He is 
the son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard 
Padgett. Ensign Padgett attended 
junior college here before entering 
the navy. 

Seaman First Class Arthur Jewett 
will arrive in Arkansas City Friday 
to spend a nine day leave. He has 
just completed boot training at 
Great Lakes, and will return to a 
navy technical school in Chicago. 



Donald Glenn popped in on us 
just recently. He was on furlough 
from St. Albans hospital in Long 
Island, N. Y. Don has been wound- 
ed, and had a pretty tough time. But 
he's looking cheerful, and he's cram- 
med with interesting conversation. 

We'd like to have excerpts from 
any letters you've received. We don't 
want to violate your privacy, but 
we'd like to print something that 
will make the boys think of home 
and faces they knew before. So that 
Don Terrill, on an aircraft carrier 
in the Pacific, can read the story of 
Jack Blankenship's flying the hump 
in a V-47; so Paul Wallack can read 
that Harris Brown had a narrow es- 
cape when Nip bombers raided his 
convoy off Formosa; so that Arthur 
Jowett can read that James McCor- 
mick was cited for heroism when he 
risked his life to save a buddy from 
burning to death in an oil fire aboard 
a battleship. 

We want to know all the things 
those boys do from peeling potatoes 
to smashing enemy installations with 
TNT and courage. And we want 
them to know what the other boys 
they knew are doing and what we 
are .doing. Help us, will you?

The Modern Heroine 

I startled her when I walked up 
to her, and when she lifted her head 
I could see damp lashes fringing wet 
eyes. But she tugged her lips into 
a brave smile when she saw me and 
murmured, "Hello, there." 

I asked her if she planned to go 
to school again and she said, "I 
might . . . Joe's gone now." 

The voice that carried those words 
left me hollow. I could feel keen- 
ly the fresh hurt in it, and yet my 
eyes saw that smile. I couldn't know 
the effort it cost to turn up the cor- 
ners of her mouth. I could only 
imagine. 

She faces now the same anxious 
emptiness that so many girls every- 
where endure. American girls, Ger- 
man girls, British girls, Russian 
girls, Chinese girls. All bound in 
their common occupation — waiting. 
Nothing is more soul-racking. 

We are quick to recognize and 
laud the furious, unthinking hero- 
ism of the battlefield; but how 
prone we are to forget the intense 
courage of these girls who wait.

OVER THE BACK FENCE 



By Tonunie Oopeland 
Shirley Gilliland 
Erleen Morhain 

Come on, kids, jump on the bread 
wagon and loaf with the rest of 
the bundles! 

Why we were chosen to write such 
a dangerous column as this is be- 
yond us. But, be that as it may, 
we are quite honored; and hope, 
deep in our black, granite heart, 
that we will remain in favor with 
our readers. 

Nothing shall escape our gimlet 
eyes as we go to work industrious- 
ly with our dustcloth and Hoover. 
Prepare yourselves, children, we're 
mechanized. 

After thought: Please send threat- 
ening letters, pressure notes and pro- 
tests to the Complaint Department. 

Dick Warren, ACJC's combination 
of Hank Luisetti and Lucius Beebe, 
has given us, not without protest, 
a choice bit of news. He is sport- 
ing an elegant photograph of a 
Dodge City girl named Babs. But 
after pumping for three hours we 
extracted only four words: "I did 
all right." 

The population of Joplin, Mo., has 
slumped somewhat and ACJC has an- 
other knowledge seeker. She slings 
poetry with a Krupa rhythm and pro- 
tests she is not fuzzy. -She is blonde, 
petite, energetic and Pat Bethel. 



Pliyllis Perico has been keeping 
the Postoffice Department busy with 
letters to her "Buzzer." We would 
give our favorite night shirt to be 
able to print one of the pictures 
Phyll has! Huba-huba-hubaaa! 



There are more diamonds flash- 
ing around on our Juco Belles' fin- 
gers! Everyone seems to be doing 
it. The latest engagee is Pat Stan- 
ley. All our congratulations to you, 
Pat. 



Eavesdropping in the club room: 
"Yes, girls, if I played my cards 
right, I could have any man 1 want- 
ed" — and as an afterthought, "But 
somehow, men don't interest me." 
Well! 

We've heard considerable comment 
to the effect that we should use our 



c'.ubrooms to better effect. This col- 
umn speaks for the TALES when it 
says, "We're all for it!" How about 
more social activity in the old 
school? 



The boys in the South Pacific re- 
port it's so hot there the trees are 
running after the dogs. 



Little Dick 

He was so quick, 

He tumbled over the timber. 

He bent his bow, 

To shoot a crow, 

And shct the cat in the winder. 



BUT WHEN? 

June Curtis and Jeanne Kincheloe, 
our chemistry sharks are in line for 
the Nobel Prize . . . But When? 

Jess Griffin, who never gives up, 
is in line for the presidency. But 
When? 

It was good to see Yeoman Third 
Class John Bartelson home after fin- 
ishing his boot training. That rat- 
ing isn't bad, Johnny. 

Johnny Richardson and Bill Woos- 
ley were home from training and 
brightened up ACJC halls, although 
Bill saw more of a certain senior 
belle than anyone else. 

The boys aren't the only ones do- 
ing their part for Uncle Sam. Betty 
Creighton looks plenty snappy as a 
cadet nurse. 

Homer Livingston: "I killed a 
snake by putting its tail in its mouth 
so it would swallow itself." 

A little more sandpaper 
And this will be smooth. (?) 



Virgil Work: Busy? Busy as a 
one-armed paper-hanger with the 
hives. 



She was only an electrician's 
daughter, but she had good connec- 
tions. 

No other column can make that 
statement. 

Here comes the man with the 
straight jacket and the butterfly 
net. But we leave you with this 
tli ought: 

We'd rather tell lies on credit 
than to tell the truth for cash. 



Your Paper 

By Jess Griffin 

Here it is. The very first issue 
of the College Newspaper! 

This is the paper which until now 
was just an impractical idea. It has 
been brought into existence by those 
who believed that it could be done. 

This is possibly the first school 
paper in history which actually be- 
longs to each individual student. 
Everybody is not only ASKED but 
URGED to contribute. All fit ma- 
terial will be gladly accepted. The 
paper is small as is the college, but 
with everybody pulling together it 
will grow, and in future years will 
play a major iole in college activ- 
ities. 



MEET THE STAFF 

This in an introduction to your 
newspaper staff. It is the only time 
their names will appear because we 
aren't going to use a "flag" as most 
papers do. Instead, each student 
who writes for us or lends his skill 
will get a byline or a special credit. 

A flag implies that the only peo- 
ple who make the paper are those 
whose names appear on the masthead 
of every issue. Bylines, we hope, 
will give credit where credit is due. 

Other than bylined writers, those 
who have had a finger in the pres- 
ent pie are: 

Dorothy Pinkston, Ferrol Fox, Pat 
Pudden, Pat Bethel, B. A. Tubbs, 
Fred Gillig, Catherine Bossi, Ray- 
mond Jewett, Dick Warren, Marvin 
Marshall, Jeanne Kincheloe, Harold 
Rice, Phyllis Perico, Glenn Wheat, 
Betty Jo Pickens, Virgil Work, Car- 
ol Barnes, Janice Starkey and Mar- 
jorie Clark. 



(Continued from Page 2) 

A letter from Lt. Bernard Ander- 
son, somewhere in France tells us 
the story of "Bastille Day" there. 
He says "The curfew toils the knell 
of parting day here. Yesterday was 
Independence Day in France, known 
as Bastille Day. I was able to hear 
a band playing in the distance. First 
they played "The Star Spangled Ban- 
ner," then "God Save the King," and 
finally the "Marseilles."

feminine complement. The party 
was prepared, grabbed by its Tiger 
Tale and thrown. A howling suc- 
cess it was, too. Harold received 
such effusive approbation that he 
had to make a frantic attempt to 
unload and distribute the credit in 
order to preserve his peaceful exis- 
tence. 

We gave our makeshift juke-box 
a grueling workout while we polish- 
ed the floor with plain and fancy 
terpischorean efforts. Even Iron- 
Man Marshall, who protests that his 
feet are uncontrollable, succumbed 
to the lure. 

Sam Burns, the Autocrat of the 
Ping Pong Table, swatted the cellu- 
loid with any deluded wight who 
dared to lift a paddle against him. 
Well nigh invincible he was. 

A bunch of card sharks grabbed 
a table, a deck, and Mr. Galle; and 
assembled in one corner for a ses- 
sion of Hi, Lo, Jack and Game. 
Coach Ruff assisted at times when 
he wasn't involved in scientific con- 
versation. 

In the opposite corner, half a doz- 
en eager beavers were so engrossed 
in a game of Chinese Checkers that 
toward the end of the evening their 
eyes began to assume an analogous 
slant. As Helen Jane Beatson said, 
"I detest this game, but it fascinates 
me." 

Incidentally we noticed three boys 
who let her stand against the wall 
and talk while they sat and listen- 
ed. But that's understandable. We 
poor boys who remain do so only 
because we can't stand. 

Added to all these specific little 
instances were bits of general fun 
too multitudinous to name. 

Conversation buzzed continually, 
creating, with all the other merry 
murmurings, quite a satisfying hub- 
bub. 

The Tales agrees with Miss Hall 
in saying, "Well done, boys." Why 
don't we do it more often? 



TIGER CLAWS 



A conceited man is a fatalist. He 
thinks that he might as well love 
himself, because if he didn't, some- 
body else would. 



By Robert Bellinger 
and Sam Burns 

Hats off to the crowd at St. John's 
college! Seldom have we seen such 
good sportsmanship at a basketball 
game. For instance, every time 
either team took a free throw it was 
really a FREE throw. No matter 
which team was taking the shot, you 
could have heard a feather drop at 
any spot in the auditorium. You 
don't see anything like that around 
here, do you? We wonder why not. 
Why is it that our spectators have 
to have some other town's rooters 
show them how to act? Do your 
part to bring about a change. 



We don't want to steal any of 
Harold Rice's stuff, but we could 
put a good sized service column on 
this page for those who have left 
the basketball team this year to join 
the armed services. We'll just let 
it suffice to name the boys and 
their respective service branches. 

Harris Brown — Merchant Marine. 

James McCormick — Navy. 

Jack Blankenship — A r m y Air 
Corps. 

Art Jewett — Navy. 

Don Terrill — Navy. 



Jucos Take First Victory 

The Ark City Tigers gained their 
first victory of the season as they 
swamped the Northern Oklahoma J. 
C. Mavericks of Tonkawa, Okla., at 
the Ark City gym on December 14. 
The final score was ACJC — 39, NOJC 
— 21. Blankenship of the locals was 
high with 13 points while Rice, an- 
other Tiger, caged 10 for the run- 
ner-up spot. Work of Ark City scor- 
ed nine, while Harold Thorstenberg 
and Eddington of the Mavericks led 
their team with seven each. Ark 
City's large court evidently wore the 
opposing team down as the Maver- 
icks did not score in the final 12 
minutes of play. Ark City led at 
the half, 16 to 11. 



Sweater girls make excellent 
teachers. They outline things so 
clearly. 



Ruffmen Take St. Johns 

The Tigers from ACJC showed the 
Si. John's College Johnnies that no 
team is invincible as they handed 
the Johnnies their first, and to date 
only, defeat on January 10. The fi- 
nal score was 4 2 to 35. 

The local jucos started off with a 
bang leading 1 2 to 2 with about ten 



minutes of playing time remaining 
in the first half, but the Johnnies 
rallied and Ark City led 14 to 13 
at the half. The Tigers again came 
back strong to start the second half, 
jumping into a 2 6-17 lead which 
they managed to protect throughout 
the remainder of the game. 

Mitschke led the scoring with 13 
points on six baskets and one free 
throw. Work and Blankenship led 
the locals with 11 points apiece while 
Warren of Ark City had 10. 



Tigers Repeat at Tonkawa 

On January 5 the Ark City Juco 
Tigers again defeated the Northern 
Oklahoma J. C. Mavericks, this time 
on the NOJC court at Tonkawa. The 
Tigers started off with a bang and 
built up a big lead, but Harold "Sig" 
Thorstenberg got hot in the last half 
to pull Tonkawa up to a ten-point 
margin and a final score of 38 to 28. 
Due to his last-half efforts Thorsten- 
berg walked off with the scoring 
honors, garnering 19 points on eight 
baskets — seven in the last half — and 
three free tosses. Jack Blankenship, 
speedy Tiger forward, rang up 16 
points for second place. Rice of Ark 
City was third with nine. 

The Tigers piled up an early lead 
with the score standing at 19 to 1 
at one point and at 23 to 5 at the 
half. The Mavericks came back 
strong in the second half and, paced 
by their 6% -foot center, pulled to 
within ten points of the Tigers at 
the final gun. 



Tigers Bow to St. Johns 

The ACJC Tigers dropped the 
opening game of the basketball sea- 
son on Dec. 8, 1944, as St. John's 
College of Winfield rang up 5 points 
on their home court. The final score 
was 27 to 50. Mitschke "of St. John's 
was high with 18 points on nine 
goals while Resner, a teammate, was 
runner-up with 15 points on seven 
buckets and one charity toss. Burns 
was high for the locals with nine 
points on four baskets and one free 
throw. St. John's led at the half by 
a score of 3 to 11. 



The sympathy of the students is 
with Cpl. L. J. Adams whose father 
died last week. L. J. is one of our 
former students, and is now in the 
Army Medical Corps, APO San Fran- 
cisco.

ACJC War Bond Drive 

■ 

The Junior College Student Coun- 
cil is sponsoring a war bond cam- 
paign to finance an AAF Bomb Trail- 
er and a Caterpillar Tracked Weasel. 
But unfortunately our campaign 
needs a stimulus. In order to reach 
our goal we have to buy $632.85 
worth of bonds and stamps. We 
are just that much short of the nec- 
essary total of $5,965. $4,815 for 
the Weasel and $1,15 for the Bomb 
Trailer. 

To give the drive added impetus, 
ACJC students have been divided 
into two teams with Pat Bethel and 
Sam Burns acting as Captains. 

The council is asking every stu- 
I dent to spend his money wanton- 
ly on bonds and stamps, and it also 
suggests that students buy them 
through the school for others. 

Let's try our best to put the drive 
over the top in the time we have 
left. And then when it does go over 
we will have a gala celebration at 
which the losing team will enter- 
tain the winners. 

o 

THESE ARE OUR BOYS 

By Pat Bethel 

We here at home have a job to do. 
Buying bonds and giving to the Red 
Cross is a part of it, but there is 
something else. We need to be edu- 
cated. I'm not writing about edu- 
cation in general. That is needed, 
but we need to be educated to help 
the returning veteran. 

There are men coming back who 
are minus a leg or 'two, or maybe 
an arm, or maybe he has lost his 
- sight. 

How are we going to treat them? 
Are we going to pity them and take 
away what self-confidence they have. 
"We must help them to build self- 
confidence. Help them as much as 
we can, but let them do things for 
themselves. 

We must let them know that they 
are wanted, help them find jobs, 
jobs that will utilize the technical 
training they have had. 

This is the least we can do to re- 
pay them for what they have done 
for us.

THE TIGERAMA WILL BE HELD 



A Letter From a Soldier 

Albert J. Volkland, former Juco 
student, is now stationed "Some- 
where in Germany," according to a 
very interesting letter recently re- 
ceived by Miss Sleeth. Following 
are a few paragraphical excerpts 
from his letter. 

"Our first sight of land was a 
momentous occasion — and all rails 
were jammed as everyone strained 
to see both continents. It was some- 
what of a disappointment to many of 
us that portions were obliterated by 
a heavy fog. 'Lady Luck' was with 
us however, for as we passed 'The 
Rock' the skies parted — and there it 
stood gleaming in the sunshine — 
as one boy said, 'Just like the Pru- 
dential ads at home.' 

"It was our privilege to have the 
opportunity to visit Marseille, but I 
must admit that I was rather disap- 
pointed. It was difficult to make 
allowance for the average of 1- - 
even though they were quite evident 
on all sides, as I looked for the 
splendor of the city that was upper- 
most in my minds eye. 

"For the folks at home it would 
te very difficult to visualize the 
wreckage of buildings — sewers still 
clogged with dead — gaunt children 
begging in the streets. To us, how- 
ever, it has long since become" a daily 
scene to which we have hardened 
ourselves, though, it was intensely 
nauseating at first. 

"There are few people at home 
that can appreciate the feelings of 
a soldier immediately prior to his 
first contact with the unknown — 
the carrying on of normal duties 
daily with the realization that this 
day might be his last — the knowl- 
edge that the unknown can strike 
at any time. Civilians here, though, 
know that feeling — and somewhat 
appreciate our feelings. Thank the 
Lord our families can grow up, liv- 
ing in the sunshine instead of hud- 
dling in dark cellars and holes and 
cringing at the sound of each shot." 



Annual Affair Will Be 
Reinstituted This Year 



By Marjorie Clark 

How about it kids? We voted to 
have a Tigerama again this year. 
Now it's strictly up to us to make 
it a huge success. With a little bit 
of initiative, a lot of hard work, and 
some financial help, it can be. 

Last year the annual Senior-Juco 
Prom was discarded so that a college 
banquet could be held. 

The original purpose of the form- 
al Tigerama was to interest seniors 
of the local and neighboring high 
schools in our college activities. In 
past years the seniors from Cedar 
Vale, Geuda Springs, Newkirk, Ox- 
ford and other nearby towns were 
invited to this welcome dance. It is 
possible of course that only the local 
seniors will be able to attend this 
year. When possible, a band has 
been obtained to play for the dance, 
but other music could be used if 
necessary; and we could use decor- 
ations left from previous Tigeramas. 

With a little help from everyone 
we can have a wonderful time Come 
on, kids! Roll out the red carpet! 
Dust off the "Welcome" sign — and 
let's have a Spring Prom.

Current Affairs Test 

In Time Magazine's current affairs 
test, given in the junior college Feb- 
ruary 21, the Current History class 
made an average score of slightly 
less than 50 out of a possible 105. 
The average score of both four year 
and two year college students who 
took the test last year was 58. The 
two high scores of ACJC this year, 
9 4 and 8 8, were made by Raymonc 
Jewett and B. A. Tubbs.

THE EDUCATOR LEAVES 

By Jess Griffin 

Twenty-eight years ago a young 
man came to our town. To list all 
his accomplishments since he arriv- 
ed would take pages. During these 
many years his friendly smile and 
solid advice have won him a place 
in our hearts. 

This young man, Mr. E. A. Funk, 
has finished his job. He has done 
a good job. Taking an active part 
in local and state educational orga- 
nizations, he has gained the respect 
of all. Guiding the lives of teen- 
age students and molding useful ca- 
reers have been two of his greatest 
services. 

His job done, the educator goes 
home to the orchard he has built. 
After 2 8 years of service he is given 
a,. well earned rest. The best wishes 
of many grateful people go with 
him. 



THE MINORITY SPEAKS 

By Janice Starkey 

I don't know how they did it, but 
they did. Yes, they did. They pub- 
lished Tiger Tales and did a swell 
job of it. I was one of the minor- 
ity who voted against it because I 
thought it would be a failure if they 
tried. 

Orchids to the whole staff and an 
extra petal to the editor for his ef- 
forts. Congratulations, kids, it was 
a dandy paper. 

Now that you've proved your- 
selves, we'll all pitch in and help. 
Never let it be said that the minor- 
ity in ACJC is uncooperative. 
o 

The Tales wants all of you to 
share in its thanks to Catherine 
Bossi, Dorothy Pinkston, and Bob 
Dellinger for their help. The oth- 
ers who contributed have by-lines. 



A compliment is something like 
a kiss through a veil. — Victor Hugo. 
o 

Tommie Copeland, one of our 
masculine personages around the 
halls of ACJC, has enlisted in the 
Navy. . He will report to Kansas 
City for further examinations on 
March 26. We all wish Tommie the 
best in his "new career." 



OVER THE BACK FENCE 



Juco Frosh Carol Barnes was 
rushing to make her eight o'clock 
trig class Friday morning when, 
Bam! Crash! Boom! she ran into 
another car and crumpled a fender. 

OK, kids, put away your ration 
stamps, you know THIS corn is 
1 OINTLESS! 



Kindly let all those who are go- 
ing out first. 



S2/c Raymond Fanning, HS '44, 
recently sent home a roll of film 
of himself and his buddies to be 
developed. Navy life seems to agree 
w'tli him since lie weighs 210 pounds 
now. 



"Are you going to get a new form- 
al for the Tigerama?" 

"Oh, sure!" 

That's how it goes; and are all 
those gals excited! A real formal 
dfnce with all the trimmings. 
Wheee! 



Thanks lots, Shirley Braman. 
Those are really slick records. Slip- 
pery, too. 



A sharp tongue is the only edge 
tool that grows keener with con- 
stant use. — Matthew Arnold. 



Have you ever danced with Ray- 
mond Jewett? He's really smooth. 
Speaking of dancing, aren't Glenn 
and Pinkie a cute couple? 

Why all the tears, Janice? Bill's 
just joining the Navy like every- 
body else. Just because you don't 
like Bell Bottom Trousers. 

B. A., where'd you get that cute 
haircut? 



Attention, all girls with future in 
mind. Attention, all girls. Freddie 
Gillig is an experienced housekeeper 
and cook. Children just adore him, 
too, especially those about eighteen. 



Any person caught smoking in or 
around these premises will be dealt 
with accordingly. 



I shall endeavor to enliven mor- 
ality with wit, and temper wit with 
morality. — Joseph Addison. 



The juco joy-mongers gathered in 
the ACJC clubroom March 2 3 for 
another typically juco party. 

They imbibed generous amounts of 
flavored fizz-water, danced some, 
played rummy and struggled with 
bridge, and kidded themselves with 
a genuine Ouija board. Miss Hall 
turned in a brilliant performance in 
winning her first game of Chinese 
checkers. 

There was a quiet cast to the 
party, however, and, in spite of the 
fact that the kids enjoyed them- 
selves, the night seemed to lack the 
intangible spark that distinguishes 
the superlative from the good. Let's 
try again. Perhaps practice does 
make perfect. 

A Letter to My Darling 

By Phyllis Perico 

Here is something for you shar- 
pies to bend your brains on. We 
can find 27 song titles in this let- 
ter. How many do you see? 

Dearest Candy: 

Night and day I'm making believe 
that I am close to you. I dream of 
you since you went away. I give 
you my word I'll never love again 
because of all the things you are. 

I'll get by as long as I have you. 
but little did we know when and 
where I would be saving myself for 
you. Tilings aren't what they used 
to be since you went away, but my 
heart tells me how sweet you are; 
and I'm satisfied that you're the 
dream, I'm the dreamer. 

When they ask aDout you I tell 
them more and more, but its just 
the same old story — I love you. 

I'll see you again, and when I do 
it will be my shining hour. You 
don't know how much I wish that 
I could hide inside this letter. 

Goodnight, wherever you are, and 
sweet dreams, sweetheart. 

— Sweet Lorraine. 

Someday I'll pass by the Great Gates 
of Gold, 

And see a man pass through un- 
questioned and bold. 

"A Saint?" I'll ask, and old Peter'll 
reply : 

"No, he carries a pass — he's a new , 
paper guy." 

— Benjamin Scoville.

SERVICE COMMAND 



Tiger Tales now goes to thirty- 
one boys and one girl who were once 
in school here and are now in the 
armed services somewhere. Thir- 
teen of these are overseas addresses. 
We are using the nickels that ACJC 
students pay for the Tales to mail 
the papers to those former students. 
We have enough money for a few 
more addresses so if you know of 
some of our boys and girls in the 
U. S. or abroad who are in the serv- 
ices and would like to read the Tales, 
let us have their addresses. 



We were at the railroad station 
last Sunday watching twenty-five of 
our boys take the first step of a long 
journey. They had enlisted in the 
Navy and were going to Kansas City 
for their physical examinations. It 
was the same goodbye scene that you 
boys were once a part of. 

The setting was brighter than 
many of you had though. The day 
was an impeccable spring day, and 
jaunty spring dresses spattered 
dashes of color through the throng 
of humanity milling on the station 
platform. 

There were bare emotions, yes. 
For those boys were entering the 
strange, dangerous world beyond 
our comfortable city. But there was 
resolution and courage and some- 
times, but not often, a spiritless res- 
ignation. There was the same va- 
p d, farcical humor among the boys 
that you boys used to hide the hurt 
vhen you boarded the train out of 
the old home town. 

There were pretty girl friends only 
now beginning to really appreciate 
their boys; there were Mothers' 
tears and Dads' twisted smiles and 
heartfelt good wishes. 

Altogether it was a little bit of 
America, a bit of your home. I wish 
1 u could have seen it, so you cou'd 
know that the Yanks still are com- 
ing. 



Glenn Williams, son of Mr. Wil- 
bur E. Williams, was commissioned 
an Ensign in the Naval Reserve and 
designated a Naval Aviator recently 
at the Naval Air Training Bases, 
Pensacola, Florida. 

Having completed his intermedi- 
ate training at the "Annapolis of the 
Air," he will be ordered to duty 



either at an instructor's school for 
further training or at an operation- 
al base. 

Prior to entering the Naval serv-

ior college for two years. Ensign 
Williams is now home for a visit, 
and at the close of his 14 day leave 
will report to Seattle, Washington,

ACJC in 1941, writes that she has 
been playing the organ for chapel 
services on Sunday afternoon. 



Pfc. William Vanskike, JC '42, 
has one way of keeping himself busy 
all the time. He writes that he 
learned the Philippino art of build-

a porch onto the tent where he and 
his buddies live. Nice going Bill! 
Pfc. Vanskike is stationed in the 
Philippines. 



Pvt. John Bossi, now attached to 
a General Hospital near Reims, 
France, writes that he enjoys his 
work as a laboratory technician tre- 
mendously. Pvt. Bossi commented 
that they had only 20 patients but 
that the hospital would soon begin 
to cp irate on full scale. 



Fred Gillig, another of our AC 
JC lads, left Monday, March 19, for 
Oklahoma City, where he will report 
for induction into the navy. 



Pharmacist's Mate Third Class, 
Robert Jones, JC '43-44, now sta- 
tioned with the navy hospital corps 
at Great Lakes, 111., comments that 
he is fine and keeping busy. 



Corp. Douglas McCall, who has 
been serving with the medical de- 
tachment, seventieth division, has 
recently been sent to a hospital in 
France because of a leg injury fol- 
lowing action on the Western Front 
with the Seventh army. He writes 
that he will be given duty with the 
aid station in France and will not 
be sent back to the fighting district. 



Miss Hall has received a V-letter 
from Cpl. Charles Easterling headed 
"Sailing on the Deep Blue." Cpl. 
Easterling, who attended junior col- 
lege in '4 2 and '4 3, stated that he 
was anxious to hear the news of 
ACJC. 



Pvt. Charles Bonner Ruff of the 
First Army has written his parents 
that he has been in continuous com- 
bat since December 18. Pvt. Ruff, 
JC '4 2, a member of the battalion 
of the 193rd Glider Infantry Regi- 
ment told his parents of a particu- 
lar night when the Allies and the 
Germans participated in an artillery 
duel. He decided at that moment 
that his best friend was his intrench- 
ing shovel because by means of it 
he was able to get down below the 
ground and out of the line of fire. 



Lael Smith, who has been attend- 
ing West Coast Sound School in San 
Diego, has written friends and rel- 
atives of his promotion to Seaman

Pfc. James E. Coker, JC '42, who 
is with the 102nd infantry division 
in Germany, has been awarded a cer- 
tificate of merit. This award was 
made in connection with operations 
against the enemy during the period 
from Oct. 1, to Jan. 15, 19 45, in rec- 
ognition to conspicuous meritorious 
and outstanding performance of mil- 
itary duty. Coker has been overseas 
since September, 1944.

ions went to Hollywood. They vis- 
ited the famed Hollywood Canteen 
and were later picked up by the fa-

TIGER CLAWS 

By Sam Burns 

The Junior College dropped a 
thriller to the Strother Field Head- 
quarters team by a score of 45 to 44. 
The game was fast and rather rough, 
one man from each team leaving the 
game on personal fouls. 

The score at the half was 24 to 
19 in favor of the junior college, 
but the soldier team began to hit 
shots from all angles to pull past 
the game Tigers. 

Selridge of Strother Field was 
high point man for the game w' f, i 
15 points. Work was high for the 
junior college with 10. 

o 

ACJC Takes Strother 

Ending their present season with 
a victory, the ACJC Tigers defeated 
the Strother Field Officers' team by 
a score of 3 9 to 35. The Tig rs led 
at the half-time 19 to 14. 

The Tigers finished this season 
with a .500 average, having won four 
and lost four. During the season 
they were handicapped by the loss 
of several of their best players, but 
managed to add some men to offset 
the loss. 

In this game, Work of the Tigers 
was leading scorer with 16 points. 
Huson, Strother center, scored 10 
points to lead the officers.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 

Since we placed our Tiger Tales 
contributor's box in the Club Room, 
we've had several contributions, 
some of which we have printed here. 
It seems we've run rather to ques- 
tions of sports, but we have some 
by-lined contributions on other 
pages. 

This column will be open to all 
worthwhile comment and to both 
sides of any controversial issue. If 
you disagree with anything we pub- 
lish here, write your rebuttal and 
we'll print it. 

The following questions came to 
us unsigned, which is unfortunate 
because the author certainly de- 
serves credit for his contributions. 
Any of your contributions to the 
Tales should be signed so that credit 
can be given you and so we can set 
a by-line for you as we did for Jan- 
ice Starkey and Pat Bethel in this 
issue. An unsigned article implies 
that the author is ashamed of his

statement. It also evades the re- 
sponsibility and credit which the 
author ordinarily would assume, and 
places it on the editorial staff, who 
have no way of avoiding it. Your 
name need not be printed, if you 
have reason for wanting it withheld, 
but we do request that you sign your 
articles. 

Dear Editor: 

Do you believe that a Tigerama 
should be presented? People from 
any school other than our own can- 
not attend. Money to get a band 
is something to be considered. Juco 
students are in favor of a Tigerama, 
but would they be willing to finance 
a band? 



Dear Editor: 

What is your opinion of the school 
having a track team? Would you 
try out for the team? 



It seems a good idea to us. W'" r 
don't you initiate a move to see if 
it's possible? As for the editor's 
being on the team, "Barkis is will- 
in'," but he runs like a retired dray 
horse. 



We do believe that the Tigerama 
should be produced. We very like- 
ly cannot afford a band, but will 
that stop us? And should we con- 
sider that only the seniors from 
other schools deserve a Tigerama? 
Let's not neglect our own seniors 
simply because others may not be 
able to attend. 



Dear Editor: 

Do you think the basketball team 
should be awarded letters for their 
efforts? 

It is our understanding that this 
past season was not an official one, 
which would mean that letters prob- 
ably could not be awarded. It would) 
seem only fair, though, to give those 
boys who stuck with the team some 
recognition. Perhaps the student 
council could take the matter up 
with the school authorities.

VOLUME II 



Passing Parade 
Of Juco Events 



ARKANSAS CITY, KANSAS. NOVEMBER 29, 1945 

7 Kollege Kornivar Planned 



NUMBER l; 



This fall, for the twenty-third time 
since the founding of the Arkansas 
City Junior College, the doors of this 
school have swung open to a new group 
of eager, bright-faced enrolees. 

The timid freshmen and new stu- 
dents soon discovered that the profes- 
sors did not glower at them from over 
the tops of horn-rimmed spectacles but, 
instead, were quite ordinary human be- 
ings who were doing all they could to 
help their pupils adjust themselves to 
college life. 

The new students also discovered 
that the intimate atmosphere which pre- 
vails only in smaller colleges was con- 
ducive to the making of many new and 
interesting friends. Several parties and 
assemblies during the first few weeks 
of school encouraged this spirit of 
friendliness, both among the students 
and between the faculty and the stu- 
dents. 

Get-In-Step Party 

A freshman Get-In-Step party was 
planned with the idea of rallying some 
good old JUCO spirit. Hopes for a bon- 
fire rally were quenched by rainy wea- 
ther so the affair was held in the jun- 
ior high school girls' gymnasium. 

After consuming hot dogs and ice 
cream bars the freshmen, sitting in a 
circle on the floor joined in singing and 
cheering. Prof. Ruff then took mat- 
ters in hand and directed some hilari- 
ous relays, the effects of which were 
felt for weeks afterwards. (Emmett 
Smith verifies this statement). 

Thanks to Miss Anne Hawley, Miss 
Dorothy Nichols, Miss Pauline B. Sleeth 
and C. E. Ruff, the party was a huge 
success. 

Hallowe'en Frolic 

The freshmen and the faculty were 
guests of the sophomores for a "Hallo- 
we'en Frolic" held one evening last 
month in the college club room. 

Any person who passed the junior 
college that evening would have seen 
many mysteriously garbed creatures be- 
ing admitted into the dim, candle-light- 
ed halls by ghost sentinels. 

One by one the creatures, or guests, 
passed through a "horror hall," touch- 
ing strange objects, crawling over 
chairs, squirming under tables and fi- 
nally arriving in the club room which 
was filled with incense smoke and light- 
ed by jack-o-lanterns. Pumpkins and 
cornstalks decorated the corners of the 
room. 

Besides dancing and card playing the 
guests enjoyed apple-bobbing, a soda 
cracker relay and a string-chewing con- 
test done by couples to see which one 
could reach the candy in the middle of 
the piece of string first. (Genevieve 



r.;> 



Goff and S 2/c Ed Galle took their 
time when they got close to the candy). 

Not only has fellowship been encour- 
aged by parties but it has also been 
nurtured by class meetings and by sev- 
eral worthwhile assemblies. 

Several Worthwhile Assemblies 

In the first assembly of the year an 
address of welcome was delivered by 
C. E. St. John, superintendent of the 
city schools. In another assembly a 
thought-provoking speech on the con- 
struction and the power of the atomic 
bomb was given by E. S. Berry who 
was among those who worked in the 
atomic bomb plant near Pasco, Wash. 

One assembly was presented entirely 
by members of the student body. A 
piano solo, Beethoven's "Moonlight Son- 
ata," was played by Dan Stark. Arthur 
Fitch spoke on the need for purchas- 
ing war stamps and bonds in this last 
drive and Barbara Garris and Rosalee 
Jones made talks, encouraging the stu- 
dents to support a college newspaper. 
Changes in Faculty 

Two members of the faculty, P. M. 
Johnson and D. C. Stark, have return- 
ed to their teaching duties after hav- 
ing received their discharges from the 
armed forces. Another member of the 
faculty, Miss Thelma Hall, resigned be- 
cause of poor health. 

This winds up a summary of all 
JUCO events since Sept. 4 as seen by 
the staff of the Tiger Tales. 



KOSAL.EE JONES CHOSEN HEAD 

OF 45-4fi TIGER TALES STAFF

P. M. Johnson is faculty advisor. 



"Is this a station-to-station call?" 
asked the long-distance operator when 
a minister in Hoboken put in a call to 
another minister in Omaha. 

"No," he said meekly, "it's a parson- 
to-parson call." 



Freshmen to Honor 
Sophomores At 
Dinner Friday Evening 

The "Kollege Kornival" which will 
be given by the freshmen Friday night 
in the Methodist church at 6:15, has 
promises of food and "surprises" for all 
who attend, according to Joan Templar, 
program chairman. 

The events of the evening are being 
kept a secret by the program committee 
which is composed of Barbara Garris, 
Betty Smith, and LaVonne Young. 

Iris Rahn is chairman of the decor- 
ating committee. Other members of 
this committee are Marjorie Crabtree,

sophomore class and everyone is urged 
to be on time. 

Tickets are still available at the col- 
lege office. Come one, come all, .have 
fun at the "Kollege Kornival." 



French Club Organized 

The initial meeting of the French 
Club was held in the club room Tues- 
day evening, Nov. 2 0. Under the tem- 
porary chairmanship of Miss Anne Haw- 
ley, sponsor, the meeting convened and 
the election of officers was held. 

Marjorie Crabtree was elected pres- 
ident of the organization. Other offi- 
cers are: Emmett Smith, vice president 
and program chairman; Barbara Gar- 
ris, secretary; Gilda Gaynor, reporter; 
and Mrs. Harry Oldroyd, social chair- 
man. 

The members decided that they 
would hold a meeting once every two 
weeks and that in these, French would 
be spoken as much as possible. The 
French national anthem was sung and 
the meeting was adjourned to meet 
again December 4.

in service. If you have heard from a 
former student who is now in the armed 
forces or who is home on leave or 
furlough, drop your information in the 
Tiger Tales box in the college club 
rooms or give it to Betty Eustice or 
Beverly Godfrey, co-writers of this col- 
umn. 



Soundman Third Class Lael Smith 
left Monday after spending an 18-day 
leave visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. 
C. E. Smith. He is reporting to Okla- 
homa City for reassignment. 



Seaman First Class Norman Byers, 
a.c.h.s. '44, is enjoying a leave with

Uncle Sam has beckoned again, and 
good old ACJC is minus three more 
eligible males. Arthur Fitch, Tom Bill- 
ings and Dan Stark are carrying ex- 
tremely heavy courses of college work 
for the Navy. "Art" and "Butch" are 
going to Cornell University in New 
York and Dan is going to Swarthmore 
College in Pennsylvania. They seem to 
be kept pretty busy with nineteen hours 
of credit but they will always have 
time to read your enlightening letters. 



Pharmacist's Mate 3/c Robert Jones, 
a.c.h.s. '43, is spending a few days leave 
with his parents. He will return to his 
station in Florida.

in teletype work. Pvt. Duncan is sta- 
tioned at Scott Field, 111. 



Tli at completes our information on 
men in the armed forces. The col- 
umn this time consisted mainly of navy 
personnel but please don't think we're 
prejudiced. Any news of army men 
will also be cheerfully accepted.

Messiah Soloists Are 
Announced by Hinchee 

The soloists for this year's presenta- 
tion of the Messiah have been announc- 
ed by C. L. Hinchee, high school and 
college choral director. They are Mar- 
jorie Crabtree and Mrs. Keith Burton, 
sopranos; Kenneth Judd, tenor; Mrs. 
Christa Fisher of Wichita, contralto; 
and Dr. H. O. Loyd, bass. 

Several college students will play in 
the Messiah orchestra under the direc- 
tion of August Trollman, instrumental 
director. The members of the college 
chorus class will sing in the Messiah 
chorus. 

December 16 is the date that has 
been set for the presentation of Han- 
del's famous oratorio this year. It will 
be given in the auditorium-gymnasium 
and the public is invited. This will be 
the thirteenth time that the Messiah 
has been given in Arkansas City. 

Anyone who has sung in the Mes- 
siah chorus or played in the orchestra 
before is invited to attend the com- 
bined rehearsals which will begin in a 
few weeks.

Joes and Janes — it's for you . Let's all 
work together and make this a paper 
for everyone. If you have any criti- 
cisms of the paper or if you would 
like to express your opinion on some 
school function just let one of the staff

Schnelle Speaks in Assembly 

The Rev. Dayle Schnelle of the Cen- 
tral Christian church spoke in the 
Thanksgiving assembly which was held 
in the senior high school music room 
Thursday, Nov. 15. Barbara Garris 
was in charge. 

The assembly opened with the sing- 
ing of the "Doxology" accompanied by 
Betty Smith on the piano. Shirley Gil- 
liland led the group in prayer and de- 
votions. 

A vocal solo, "We Gather Together," 
by Marjorie Crabtree closed the devo- 
tionals. She was accompanied by Betty 
Smith. 

B. A. Tubbs, president of the Student 
Council, announced plans for a bond 
and stamp buying contest to be held 
among the students. At the conclusion 
of the assembly bonds and stamps were 
purchased. 



Former Students Wed 

Mable Murrer, former college student 
and Marvin Marshall, j. c. '4 5, were 
united in marriage Nov. 9, at the First 
Baptist church. 

The bride, for the past two years, 
has been employed in the offices of 
the Maurer-Neuer Corporation. The 
bridegroom has served 16 months in 
the army and is now continuing his 
education at Oklahoma A. and M. col- 
lege at Stillwater. 



Love is the star men look up to as 
they walk along and marriage is the 
coal-hole they suddenly find themselves 
floundering in.

Ye Olde College 
>ize' 



During war time, our college attend- 
ance dropped to a small number be- 
cause of the draft and because of the 
need for war workers. 

Today, our college is growing little 
by little and with it grows a need for 
the development of the activities that 
brightens college life and that puts the 
old "spizerinctum" into school spirit. 

Assemblies, parties, pep rallies, lang- 
uage clubs, dinners, banquets . . . Here's 
what we need, and there's only one way 
to get them . . . leadership, coopera- 
tion, enthusiasm . . . Let's get out of 
the rut of haphazardness, and inertia. 

It is the job of us students to pub- 
licize our school by doing our "dead- 
level" best to make all school functions 
a success. But remember, this cannot 
be done by two or three loyal workers. 

Are you willing to put forth some 
extra hours to help promote these activ- 
ities? If so, let's all get together and 
promote gayer college life and better 
school spirit. — B. G.

Relinquent Dent 



The rust dolled as Scarface Hanni- 
gan, heated on his sorce, prundered 
across the thairies. Ahead harcely a 
scundered feet rode the pursued Sam- 
my Sawbumble, The Down Trunk. 

"Don't shoot, Scarface!" gasped 
Rammy. "I can't cay the pent." 

But here indeed was a kasty nar- 
acter. 

"I have missed you so much, Sam- 
my," shouted Scarface as he aimed 
again. Me hissed. 

"Giddap," chortled Scarface to Ulys- 
ses, his nag. 

"Didgap souryelf," replied Ule, the 
nagysses. (Imagine a spount meak- 
ing). But there is no time for argu- 
ment between meast and ban. 

Gang! Gang! boomed the bat. 

"Sou got me!" squeaked Yammy. 

Moral: Sunk or drober pay your rent. 



THE BASEMENT BUZZ 



PECK AND SMITH 



Hi — all you Juco guys and gals! 
It sure seems swell to have our 
own paper again,, doesn't it? We'll 
try to bring you all the latest scan- 
dal, so beware, (for we gremlins see 
all, hear all and TELL. ALL. 
We hear that Jack Rine shows prom- 
ising signs of following in the foot- 
steps of Prankie Sinatra. Say Jack — ■ 
are these early morning concerts a sign 
of twitterpation? Need we say more? 
(Hush-hush money will be accepted). 
A certain, GI Joe writes that 
Army is alright, but that one can- 
not always tell what he is eating, 
he has to take a brief pause for 
ration identification. — Swiped. 
Attention! All lofty Juco males! 
Please-Be-Specific has stated her pref- 
erence for all men. Ask Ledgerwood, 
he knows. 

Stardust and Salt from the Navy 
seem to mix pretty well. An ex- 
ample of this mixture is the two- 
some — Shirley Gilliland and Lael 
Smith. Maybe you have heard the 
loud beating of her heart, but Lael 
being a sound man detected it long 
ago. 

Speaking of the Navy, we have seen 
Petty Officer 3/c Daymond McVay and 
Jeanne Kinchloe strolling through the 
halls. Ah, sheer bliss. 

Scenes in the Club Rooms — 
Barbara Putnam and Glenn 
Wheat dancing to the romantic 
strains of One O'clock Jump. Earl 
Grinnell an,d "Chuck Coyote" 
Swaim (the big bad boys of ACJC) 
playing bridge. Say, boys, is pok- 
er getting too rough for you? Jack 
Givens and Alice Slaven, Helen Wil- 
son and Gloria Ausmus competing 
at the ping-pong table. Jack — is it 
charm or arm? 



Anchors Aweigh! Seems we're to 
lose one of our Juco males to the Navy. 
Chassie W. Crews has enlisted and will 
be leaving soon. Bon Voyage! Au Re- 
voir. (Extra credit please, Miss Haw- 
ley.) 

Say, whattya' know? We have 
a school song! The smile on Mr. 
Galle's face was really somethin' 
to see when he pulled out a bat- 
tered copy of the manuscript and 
presented it for inspection. The 
music for our song was composed 
by Archie San Romani, while the 
words were written by Lucille 
Plette. It will be presented to you 
in our next assembly, so let's all 
learp it, for it is the symbol of our 
school spirit. 

Here are the words: 

Let \is sing of the A. C. college days 
With joyous songs and rousing cheers 

( Rah ! Rah ! ) 
The happy friendships made will al- 
ways bring 
Sweet mem'ries in the after years. 
We pledge to you, A. C, our loyalty 
In work or play we'll stand the test 
The orange and black of junior college 
Will always wave among the best. 
Colors gay will fly again today 
For A. C. Tigers brave and Ftrong (Rah! 

Rah ! ) 
We cheer for you in victory or defeat 
Our voices raise in happy song 
It is for loyalty and fellowship 
We love and praise and honor give. 
The spirit of our junior college 
Will ever more in mcm'ry live. 

Between the wanting and the getting 
We lose our hair and hope in fretting. 
So, when we get the thing we've gotten, 
It is, so to speak, less ripe than rotten. 
We'll see you at the junior col- 
lege party Friday, Nov. 30, in the 
Methodist church basement at 6:15 
(Plug.)

a cinch. 



MR. EH 

Mr. Ed who has blonde hair, brown 
eyes, weighs 15 2 pounds and is five 
feet eleven inches tall, likes the color 
of blue and the songs "You'll Never 
Know" and "You Belong to My Heart." 
The "likes" of this juco freshman are 
acting silly, playing ping-pong, swim- 
ming, playing tennis, dancing, staying 
out late, and parking in front of a cer- 
tain person's house. 

Bing Crosby, Spencer Tracy, Lana 
Turner, Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, 
Rhetoric and Composition, books and 
shows about animals rank high on his 
list of favorites. 

Mr. Ed, who has gone steady for over 
a year, has ambitions of being a law- 
yer. He left for his physical Nov. 26. 
His name — Glenn Burns.

MISS CO-ED 

This college freshman who has lived 
on a farm all her life has hazel eyes, 
brown hair, a pretty smile and is five 
feet seven inches tall. 

A member of the 4-H club she was 
chosen queen of the Ayreshire show last 
year and was honorary queen this year. 
Among her favorites are: horseback 
riding, swimming, hiking, bicycling, pic- 
ture-taking, sleeping, pretty sweaters 
and skirts, bright colors, jeans, and one 
type of perfume. 

Miss Co-ed sported a nice big band- 
age for several months last year when 
her horse fell on her and broke her 
collar bone. 

And now, if you haven't already 
guessed, we'll tell you that this all goes 
together to make one well liked fresh- 
man girl. — Iris Rahn.

Bengals Hold 
Cage Practice 

14 Squad Members; 
Dan Stark Is Coach 

Tiger basketball players have been 
practicing for several weeks. The local 
squad, boasting 14 members at the 
present time, is under the direction of 
Coach Dan Stark. 

Among sophomores returning to the 
squad, is Virgil Work, last year's 
star and leading scorer. Other squad 
members are Earl Grinnell, "Chuck" 
Swaim. Jim Ledgerwood, Norman Os- 
trander, Oscar Thomas, Jack Givens, 
Robert Dellinger, Jack Rine, Paul Cur- 
ry, Phil Baker, Glenn Burns, Lawrence 
Osburn, and Everett "Tarzan" Grouse. 

Three members of the squad have 
left for the services since the start of 
the school year. They are Cornelius 
Carter — Army, Art Fitch — Navy, and 
Tom "Butch" Billings — Navy. Jack 
Rine — Marine vet, has joined the squad. 



The 
FEMININE TOUCH 



BY "TEMP" 



A car drew up beside the Wilson park 
tennis courts and stopped. A door open- 
ed and a maze of feet, hands, arms, legs 
and heads poured over the running 
board, eventually assuming their cor- 
rect positions on the torsos of ten girls. 
(And there were only three in the front 
seat too). 

The car (Wilson park bus) was Bet- 
ty Jo Floyd's, and the ten girls were 
members of Miss Edith Joyce Davis' 
physical education class. Since the be- 
ginning of school Miss Davis has shoo- 
ed her charges out in the bright autumn 
sunshine for active, exciting net bat- 
tles. Part of her students travel to 
Wilson park while the rest go to Paris 
park. 

Some of the girls have really begun 
to master good tennis technique. Bar- 
bara Garris swings a wicked "south- 
paw" and Marjorie Nugen puts a snap 
into her serves. But the "champ" is 
Peggy Laughlin. She beats them all. 

Janet Brown had a hard time learn- 
ing how to keep score. The first time 
her opponent yelled, "Five love," a 
strange expression came over her face 
but she made no comment. 

After the game, with a look of dis- 
gust she said, "Darn it! All I get is 
love. Why can't you give me any- 
thing else?" 

Another feature has been added to 
the tennis games played at Paris park. 
When a ball is lost in the deep grass 
ana weeds surrounding the courts the 
girls usually spend the rest of the 
period hunting for it. They tramp 



through the undergrowth until they are 
gratified by a soft "squish" beneath 
their feet which indicates that they 
have stepped on the ball. 

One day when the tennis players had 
just returned from the courts and were 
posing for pictures in front of the audi- 
torium-gymnasium, two airplanes flew 
over and dipped their wings. The girls 
waved back. Then began one of the 
most daring air shows that any of them 
had ever witnessed. The planes play- 
ed a fascinating game of follow-the- 
leader, diving, barrel-rolling, spiraling. 

Miss Davis claims that she now has 
the next-to-the-best tennis class she has 
ever had. She plans to take up golf 
as soon as the weather becomes too 
cold for tennis.

Through 

Halls of Learning 



Why are you going to college? For 
curiosity's sake, a few juco students 
were asked this question. Here are 
some of the anwers. 

Jack Rine — Because what I have seen 
the last two years, I think I need it. 

Don Burkharth — I'll be darned if I 
know. 

"Chuck" Swaim — For the women. 

Joyce Sewell — To learn. 

Genevieve Goff — O just to see the old 
gang. 

B. A. Tubbs — Heaven only knows, I 
don't. 

Jerry Patrick — To gain knowledge. 

Glenn Wheat — Getting ready for my 
career in the field of — O just in the 
field. 

Jess Griffin — I have been trying to 
think of a good reason all year. 

Marjorie ("lark — I know why, but I'm 
not going to tell. 

Earl Grinnell — You tell me. 

Oscar Thomas — I hate to say. 

Marjorie Orabtree — I'm so in love 
with learning. 

Homer Livingston — To get a better 
education. 

Norman Ostrander — That's what I 
keep asking myself. 

Jack Givens — Try to make something 
out of myself. 

Charles Crews — I don't know. Isn't 
it silly? 

Ha May McKay — Because I want to 
be a school teacher. 

Betty Sanderson — It's a pretty good 
idea. 

Glenn Burns — Because the rest of the 
kids are. 

Gloria Ausmus — To get a better ed- 
ucation.

college.

lie interesting. 

Virgil Work — To play basketball. 

Ferrel Fox — I like to go to school. 
I want to be a teacher. 



TIGER CLAWS 



BY BOB DELLINGER 



Well, folks, here we are again speak- 
ing to you from page four of Tiger 
Tales. It's a little lonesome without 
my last year's colleague, Sam Burns, 
but the latest reports have it that our 
red-headed friend will be back with us 
at the start of the second semester. 

Among other shivering souls at 
the High School-Wellington foot- 
ball game last week, we saw r Dick 
Warren. Dick played guard on the 
basketball team last year. W T e also 
saw Harold Rice making his way 
around the old familiar places. 

Although the war is officially over, 
the Juco basketball squad is still sus- 
cetible to inroads made by the armed 
forces. "Corney" Carter, Art Fitch, and 
"Butch" Billings have answered the 
call. But Uncle Sam is inclined to be 
more generous than last year and has 
returned Jack Rine from the Marines. 
Other returning servicemen may be ex- 
pected at almost any time, and we heard 
a rumor (just that, nothing more) the 
other day that Tiger fans may see Jack 
Blankenship on the court again before 
the year is over. Jack led the team in 
scoring before' he left for the service. 



TALL STORIES 

This "tall story" is taken from "The 
Joke Tellers Joke Book" by Frederick 
Meier: 

The annual meeting of the National 
Association of Electrocutors was being 
held. Instead of pulling switches and 
the like they were pulling each others' 
legs with tall stories of the men they 
had had to send to their dooms. One 
electrocutor told of one man on whom 
he prepared to pull the switch. 

"Most unconcerned cuss I ever saw," 
lie commented. "He was completely at 
ease while he was being strapped into 
the chair. Didn't whine or carry on, 
in fact, he didn't say a single word 
until I was ready to pull the switch. 
Then he turned to me and asked very 
politely, 'Pardon me, is that AC or DC 
current you use'?" 



How about it? Do you know any 
tall stories? If so, write them out and 
drop them in the journalism box in the 
club rooms. The best one will be chos- 
en and printed in the next edition. 



Buy War Bonds! 



The game of basketball was first 
discovered by James Naismith in 1891. 
Although the game lias changed and 
developed from its original simplicity, 
it is fundamentally the same today as 
when he created it. Basketball, which 
demands skill and co-operation, has 
become an important part of the physi- 
cal education program. 

"Speech is great, but silence is 
greater" — Carlyle.

Annual Tea and Reception 
Heralds Yuletide Holidays 

The junior college will hold its an- 
nual tea and reception for all college 
alumni on Dec. 21 from one-thirty to 
four in the club room. 

With so many service men returning 
home, there are prospects for a huge 
crowd this year. Many prominent citi- 
zens of the town will be invited. 

The social committee under the 
chairmanship of Helen Jane Beatson is 
in charge of arrangements for the oc- 
casion. Miss Henrietta Courtright is ad- 
visor for this committee. 

Chairmen of sub committees are: 
Clinton Keller, invitations; Judy Peck, 
decorations; Lois Caster, program; and 
Joan Templar, refreshments. 



Robert Lawson, S 1/c, arrived De- 
cember 6 to spend a 2 6-day leave visit- 
ing relatives and friends. At the end 
of his leave he will report back to his 
base at Boca Chica, Florida. 



Assemblies Presented 

Jerome Davis, U. S. War Correspond- 
ent, spoke to the junior college Nov. 
2 7 on Russia and the Russian people. 
Mr. Davis stressed the fact that in 
Russia everything belongs to all the 
people and that there is no unemploy- 
ment, racial discrimination or charge 
for medicine. Davis was the first cor- 
respondent to see and talk with Stalin. 

Following his talk, a short skit and 
announcement regarding the "Kollege 
Kornival" was given by R. B. Foster. 

On December 4, Dr. James R. Clinton 
of Philadelphia was guest speaker for 
the junior college assembly. He was 
introduced by the Rev. Ruth Larmee 
of the Pilgrim Congregational Church. 
The theme of Dr. Clinton's talk was 
"control". He also sang a solo, "Lover 
of Children." 

Lois Caster represented the sopho- 
more class in thinking the freshmen 
for a party given Nov. 3 0. Mr. Galle 
explained the plan for buying junior 
college activity tickets. 



Sec Three of Santa Clous' 
Office No. 5 Receives Letters 



"Jingle bells, jingle bells!" Santa is 
on his way, Juco Janes and Joes! 

The business office of Section 3 (Jun- 
ior College unit) of Santa Claus' office 
No. 5 already reports receiving a large 
number of letters from enterprising 
jucos who believe in this "the - early - 
bird - gets - the - present - he - asks - 
for theory! 

Jeanne Kincheloe writes "If I can't 
have Daymond tied to my Christmas 
tree with red ribbon, I'd like to take 
a trip to "Florida." 

Glenn Burns asks for "Erma, all 
wrapped up in a pretty package of 
white tissue paper, with just her head 
sticking out and a big red ribbon tied 
around her neck." 

B. A. Tubbs, a staunch follower of 
Santa Claus, believes in going all the 
way since his heart's desire is a new 
Chevrolet (plug! ) with a beautiful bru- 
nette doll in it. 

Taking the more practical attitude is 
Phyllis Conrad, who instructs Santa to 
just bring her "something nice". Her 
policy is "If I ask for it, I'm certain I 
won't get it". 

Jack Carter says he would like to 
have "a phonograph, a radio, a shot- 
gun, some shells, a car and just 
EVERYthing that is hard to get". 
(Little things like this list bother Santa 
a great deal since he thinks that the 
OPA, OWI, WPB, CPA, CIO and KFH 



are his biggest problems and that is 
where he obtains these scarce items.) 

Glenn Wheat, trying to be a good 
boy till Christmas, hopefully asks (for 
the third successive year) for "a roly- 
poly teddy bear". Charles Crews, also 
returning to his youthful pastimes ( or 
is it as youthful as it sounds), wants 
"a little dolly with real rings in its 
ears". 

Erleen Morhain writes Santa, telling 
him not to bother too much with her 
this Christmas, since "that lieutenant 
will be here for New Year's Day — and 
he's all I want". (Because of her 
generosity St. Nick is going to put an 
extra piece of candy in her stocking on 
Christmas Eve. ) 

The most recent letter yet received 
at the North Pole is from Barbara Put- 
nam. Her sole request is a cigarette 
lighter. It seems that this little juco 
jane doesn't smoke, but gadgets just 
fascinate her. 

"Remember, kiddies, only nine more 
shopping days till Christmas — so get 
your orders in," says a bulletin from 
Office No. 5.

FLASH .... 

Here's the latest report on the 
stamp and bond selling contest: 

According to Student Council

Jeans Vs. Party Dress 

Mistakes do have a faculty for blun- 
dering into even the most orderly plans 
and arrangements. The notice which 
was posted on the bulletin Doard Friday 
morning. Nov. 30, was a result of cir- 
cumstances too numerous to mention 
here, but the fact remains that it was 
decidedly a "slip-up". 

In the first place, advertisement for 
the Kollege Kornival should have con- 
tained more specific information con- 
cerning the type of activities which 
were to be carried on. (This was not 
the fault of the advertising committee. 
Incidentally, Jack Carter did a grand 
job on those posters). And in the 
second place, the notice should have 
been posted at least 24 hours before 
that Friday morning. 

It has not been the custom for stu- 
dents of this college to "dress up" for 
parties so, with this thought in mind, 
several persons thought that the stu- 
dents should be informed as to what 
they were expected to wear. 

Every person who was responsible 
. . . directly, or indirectly . . . for the 
bulletin are sincerely sorry that it had 
to be made. Quite a number of stu- 
dents live so far from school that 
they did not have time to go home 
and change their clothes. One girl who 
could not go home bought new clothes 
after school. Many other instances 
could be stated here. 

A mistake can not be retracted; 
what's done's done; but it will not 
happen again. Definitely.

Peeking in the packages of our favorite

The parlors of the Methodist Church were a scene of festivity and gaiety Friday evening, Nov. 30, when the 
freshmen honored the sophomores at the "Kollege Kornival". A delicious spaghetti dinner was preceded hy carnival 
games and followed by a floor show (with dim lights, colored spots, pretty girls, flashing camera bulbs, etc.). 
Miss Henrietta Court-right and P. M. Johnson were crowned king and queen of the Kornival. Members of the faculty

Tigers To Meet 
Cameron Aggies 

Will Try For Second Win 
In First Home Game of 
Season; Six More Games 

The Tigers will take the floor for 
the third time this season tomorrow 
night as they go against the Cameron 
Aggies from Cameron, Okla. So far 
this season the Tigers have one victory 
and one loss. 

The Aggies' season record to date: 

Aggies 26 Hardin J.C. (Wichita Falls) 28 

Aggies 45 Grandfield Independents 37 

Aggies 62 28th Battalion, Fort Sill 37 

Aggies 48 Grandfield Independents 32 

On Jan. 4, the Jucos will meet North- 
ern Oklahoma Junior College here. The 
return game will be played at Tonkawa 
on Jan. 10. Last year the Tigers won 
both games, by scores of 39 to 21 and 
3 8 to 2 8. The Tonkawa club has much 
the same team as last year with the 
exception of star center, Harold "Sig" 
Thorstenberg. Thorstenberg scored 19 
points in Tonkawa's last game with 
the locals. 

Jan. 2 5 the Bengals will play host to 
the Grizzlies from El Dorado whom 
they defeated last week 41 to 25. The 
only other scheduled game is here with 
Dodge City on Feb. 2 2, but games are 
being arranged with St. John's and 
Dodge City. 

Arkansas City, El Dorado and Dodge 
City are the only schools in the state 
junior college conference that are field- 
ing teams this year. 



Tigers Drop Opener To 
St. John's A§ Wsnfield 

The Tigers dropped a hard-fought 
opener with St. John's college on De- 
cember 4 by a 4 8 to 4 5 score. There 
was never more than a five point dif- 
ference in the two scores and the lead 
was constantly changing hands. Ledger- 
wood and Grinnell led the locals in 
scoring with 15 and 13 points, while 
Leuking, Resner, and Stelmashowicz 
led the Johnnies. 

The Tigers were without the services 
of Virgil Work and Oscar Thomas.

The Tigers picked up their first win 
last week after dropping their opener to 
St. John's. The St. John's game is 
nothing to be ashamed of, though. The 
Johnnies always put a good team on 
the floor and are especially strong on 
their home court. Another bouquet goes 
to the St. John's fans. Their sportsman- 
ship is something seldom seen. It cer- 
tainly provided a contrast with that of 
the El Dorado rooters. Good luck to 
the Johnnies and may they lose only 
to us!

The 
FEMININE TOUCH 



BY 'TEMP'' 



Since the last issue of your Tiger 
Tales, interest of the girls' physical 
education class has turned from tennis 
to golf and volleyball. Enthusiasm for 
the latter sport this year almost equals 
that of last year's class. 

The members of the '43-'44 class 
were really "whizzes" when it came 
to playing volleyball. Thrills and ex- 
citement were in order in those days 
when Phyllis P'erico, Shirley Gilliland, 
Marjory Clark, Dorothy Pinkston and 
Marie Bolden hatted the hall hack and 
forth over the net. 

Of course everyone in Arkansas City 
has been in such robust health these 
last two weeks (Achoo! Mother, bring 
me an aspirin!) that there is hardly 
any need to warn all you rosy-cheeked 
youths to be on the look out for in- 
fluenza . . . it's considerably dangerous 
this time of year,, you know. 

SHOO, FLU, DON'T BOTHER ME 

Fooey on you. 

You old, nasty flu! 

You turned Mr. Ruff's face to an 

ashen gray, 
And made him cress the other day. 
To sneak and cheat you find no 

sin. 
And disregarding kindness you 

usually win. 
Ugh! You taste just like rusted 

tin. 

A despised, loathful creature 

You have no pleasant feature. 

Your cold, grey hands reach quick- 
ly out 

And strangle your victims in the 
very first bout. 



Bengals Crush 
Grizzlies 41-25 

Ledgerwood and Grinnell 
Lead Tigers to First 
Win on El Dorado Court 

The Tigers came back from an open- 
ing defeat by St. John's College of Win- 
field to crush the El Dorado Grizzlies 
on the El Dorado court last Friday by 
a score of 41 to 25. Ledgerwood and 
Grinnell were high for the Bengals with 
17 and 14 points respectively. Again the 
Tigers played without Virgil Work and 
Oscar Thomas and were additionally 
handicapped by the loss of Jack Rine. 
Ark City led 24 to 7 at the half. 

El Dorado opened the scoring with 
a free throw, but the Tigers soon went 
ahead and were never threatened from 
that time. The second team played dur- 
ing the last half.

NUMBER 3 



Alumni Honored At 
Christmas Reception 

A congenial, yuletide atmosphere pre- 
vailed in the college clubroom during 
the afternoon of Dec. 21 when the stu- 
dent body and the faculty played host 
to a large number of alumni in a 
Christmas tea and reception. 

An annual social event of the col- 
lege, the alumni tea-reception gives the 
former students an opportunity to re- 
new friendships and it gives the present 
students an opportunity to make many 
new acquaintances. The hostesses for 
the tea have submitted to this paper a 
list of the alumni who signed the guest 
book. They believe, however, that sev- 
eral of the former students failed to 
sign it. 

Those listed are: Pat Pudden, Joyce 
Turner, Verna Gibson Moore, Claude W. 
Moore, Robert Cook, Ralph Wagner, 
Lloyd Simpkins, Helen Jean Calkins, 
Mrs. Ivan Upson, Ivan E. Upson, Mar- 
tin Turner, Don Terrill, Betty Gail Es- 
sex, Mrs. Ralph D. Smith, Bill Ledeker, 
Carl L. Holman, jr., Dorothy Pinkston, 
Phyllis Perico, Shirley Sneller, Law- 
rence Case, Bill Funk, Bill Miller, Don- 
ald Ecroyd and Iris Tyler Dittman. 

The hostesses for the occasion, (the 
girls who greeted the guests, poured 
the tea, and presided at the guest book) 
were on the verge of fatigue when the 
party was finally dispersed. They work- 
ed overtime: the planned duration, 
1:30 to 4:00, had to be stretched an- 
other hour and a half. Those who were 
hostesses for the tea are: Barbara Gar- 
ris, Jeanne Kincheloe, Rosalee Jones, 
Betty Eustice, Jean Humphrey and 
Betty Ann Pearson. 

Enhancing the festive spirit of the 
occasion were the realistic snowmen 
on the window sills and the fairy-like 
center-piece of gold-dipped grasses. 
These were the results of Mrs. Rex 
Garris' skill and energy. The Christ- 
mas tree and the crepe paper stream- 
ers which also decorated the room were 
due to the efforts of a committee com- 
posed of Judy Peck, Glenn Wheat, Jack 
Carter and Iris Rahn. 

The girls who assisted in the club- 
room kitchenette under the supervision 
of Miss Dorothy Nichols are: Gloria 
Ausmus, Helen Wilson, Barbara Put- 
nam, Marjorie Crabtree, Beverly God- 
frey and Marjorie Clark. Those who 
assisted in the school kitchen are: Jan- 
ice Starkey, Janet Brown, Joan Temp- 
lar, Genevieve Goff, Mary Bailey and 
LaVonne Young. 

Clinton Keller was chairman of the 
committee that issued the invitations. 
The college social committee, of which 
Miss Henrietta Courtright is faculty ad- 
visor, was in charge of general ar- 
rangements. 



Second Semester Enrollment of 120 
Includes 27 Discharged Veterans 



New Students Welcomed 

A welcome party for the new mem- 
bers of th ecollege student body was 
an event of Wednesday evening. Games 
and dancing provided informal enter- 
tainment for the get-together. Refresh- 
ments were served by the social com- 
mittee which is sponsored by Miss Hen- 
rietta Courtright and composed of Judy 
Peck, Clinton Keller, Lois Caster, Jack 
Carter and Helen Jane Beatson, chair- 
man.

Twelfth Night Tradition 
Observed by French 
Club Dinner 

The French club observed "Twelfth 
Night" with a dinner in the Central 
Christian church, January 5. This was 
in keeping with the French custom of 
celebrating the 12th night after the 
birth of Christ, at which time the Wise- 
men discovered the baby Jesus. 

The French theme was carried out 
in the writing of the menus, the songs, 
and the games. The French custom of 
hiding a bean in the cake was observed. 
Beverly Godfrey discovered the bean in 
her piece of cake and therefore reign- 
ed as queen for the evening. She chose 
Emmet Smith as the king. 

After the meal, which was sei'ved by 
the women of the church, a short pro- 
gram was presented. Marjorie Crabtree 
sang "Because" in French; Betty Smith 
presented a piano solo, "Clair De Lune" 
by Debussy; Miss Palline B. Sleeth read 
a German poem, "You Are Like a Flow- 
er"; and Miss Anne Hawley told a short 
story. 

The French club also held a regular 
meeting in the junior college clubrooms 
January 15 with Marjorie Crabtree and 
Janet Brown as hostesses.

Pep Assembly Held 

The first pep assembly of second se- 
mester was held in the junior college 
study hall Friday morning, January 18. 
The cheerleaders, Judy Peck, Barbara 
Garris, and Rosalee Jones, introduced 
a new yell to the group and also led 
them in practicing other yells in prep- 
aration for the Juco-Kanotex game. It 
was announced that the pep club would 
hold a meeting that evening to practice 
and all who were interested were urged 
to attend. 



Mid-Term Registration 
Is Greatest Since 
Beginning of War 

Second semester in junior college 
started out with a "bang" as approx- 
imately 3 discharged veterans ex- 
changed their guns for books and en- 
rolled in juco classes. 

K. R. Galle, dean, announced that 
the enrollment second semester has 
reached over 12 0, the largest enroll- 
ment since the beginning of the war. 
Many of the discharged veterans at- 
tended school here before entering the 
service but others are new to the city 
schools. More veterans have contacted 
Mr. Galle and are expected to enroll in 
classes as they are discharged from the 
service. 

Many of the discharged veterans are 
not as yet taking advantage of the bene- 
fits provided by the GI Bill which al- 
lows for their education, but prefer to 
wait for a new school year before ap- 
plying for aid through the government 
education program. 

Discharged veterans who are attend- 
ing school include Warren Baber, Ray- 
mond Baldridge, John Bartelson, Wayne 
Bartlett, Harold Brady, John Carter, 
Merton Darnell, Kenneth Dodson, Les- 
lie Douglas, Lee Elder, George Gilliam, 
Roy G. Haskins, James Hollenback, 
Carl Holman, jr., Dale Mason, Rodney 
Newman, James Pierce, Jack Rine, 
James Shelhamer, Willis Shelhamer, 
Dale Smith, Edgar Tillery, Bill Turner. 
William Walz, Arkle Weekley, John 
Weymouth, and Charles Wittenborn. 
Some of these were enrolled first se- 
mester and are continuing second se- 
mester.

Freshmen Pass Physical 

The college is still producing eligi- 
ble males for the armed forces. The 
latest to be inducted are Jack Givens 
and Charlie Crews. They are now home 
awaiting their call for active duty with 
the army.

ance of the high school will not be

More Pep and Louder 
Yelling at Games Would 
Gratify Cheer Leaders 

Pep. We all have it but just what 
is it? Approximately 40 per cent of the 
junior college students can answer this. 
This includes those who attend every 
basketball game and pep assembly and 
yell with all their might. What about 
the other 6 per cent? 

The team who plays and fights for 
the name of Arkansas City junior col- 
lege needs your support in order to win. 
They need it from the first minute of 
the game until the final gun sonds, 
not just during the last few minutes 
when the scores are close or tied. 

Another characteristic needed during 
any contest is good sportsmanship. The 
college students can be commended for 
their sportsmanship this year. The 
only game where poor sportsmanship 
was exhibited by the opposing crowd 
was the one played at El Dorado. To- 
morrow night win, or lose, let's show 
that team and their rooters the true 
meaning of pep and sportsmanship. 

We've got a super team. Let's have 
some super cheering. You've got your 
pep — don't lose it. — R. J.

You're fine. How am I?" 

ROSE DIXON: Has anybody seen B. 
A.'s Tubbs, K. R.'s Galle, or Glenn's 
Wheat? 

MISS SLEETH: Some of you please 
lay your heads aside. 

R. B. FOSTER: I'd go someplace to-

THE BASEMENT BUZZ 



PECK AND SMITH 



Here we go again. 

We heard the school bell toll again 

We all came back to enroll again 

Taking a chance on passing. 

Tilings are different now. 

We see new students lapihherant* now 

We're glad to see you entering now 

So welcome to A. C. J. C. 

(Any relation to a popular song is re- 
markable ) . 

*Lapifherant-literal translation-study- 
ing, pondering, or some such unnec- 
essary act. 

Ye Olde Proverbe: Every man has a 
woman, but the ice man lias his pick. 

Upon application, Miss Sleeth will re- 
ceive an honorary membership in the 
"Rap on the Door Club." Miss Sleeth 
has become eligible for this member- 
ship through the unexpected contact of 
her forehead with the door. 

We want to thank all those who de- 
fied the cold wind and the angry looks 
of drivers to paint the streets before 
our Tonkawa game. They did a won- 
derful job, and although the paint was 
washed off by the rain before everyone 
had seen it, we appreciate their school 
spirit! (And it was fun too, wasn't 
it?) 

Scenes in the study hall: 

Charles "Coyote" Swaim pondering 



over the fascinating study of American 
government. (We have also heard that 
Swaim and R. B. (Baskimus) Foster 
tried to take foods this semester. How 
about it. boys? ) 

Many students energetically studying 
while the fire bell rings. Wouldn't it 
be shame if the school should burn 
down and catch these unsuspecting stu- 
dents unawares? 

Emmet Smith surrounded by mem- 
bers of the female sex. 

Ledgerwood and a certain young lady 
(Hint: she has blonde hair, blue eyes, 
and is on the short side) discussing 
their plans for the evening. 

Overheard: 

Homer: Your eyes are like limpid 
pools of starlight, your lips are like 
the first dew upon the rose-bud and 
your voice, ah that voice! It reminds 
me of my faithful Plymouth, what 
rhythm, what smoothness, what beau- 
ty! 

Iris: Oooooooooo corn! 

First college student: This coffee 
tastes like mud. 

Second college student: No wonder! 
It was just ground this morning. 

That did it! this is the end, 

we hang our heads in shame .... 
bang! ! ! 



Improvements for Club 
Rooms Are Suggested 

"How could the club rooms be im- 
proved?" is the question asked to the 
juco students by your reporter. 

Here are some of the answers: 

Shirley Gilliland: "Use a paint brush 
and some determination." 

Mary Edith Gibson: "Paint the walls 
and put some pictures up." 

Jess Griffen: "People shouldn't study 
in the club rooms. This is a play room 
not a study room." 

Mary Bailey: "Get some good lights, 
so you can see." 

Jack Givens: "Put in a pool table." 

Jean Kincheloe: "How about a new 
phonograph." 

Everett Crouse: "Needs lights." 

Robert Dellinger: "Get some new 
ping-pong paddles, and get some lights 
— but the whole school needs lights 
anyway." 

Beverly Godfrey: "Keep it in better 
order, and clean the upholstered furn- 
iture." 

Doris Deets: "Keep the door closed." 

Betty Jo Pickens: "Put in a bar (I 
mean a snack bar)." 

Iris Rahn: "It would stand painting. 
Needs some beds, too." 

Betty Smith: "Pictures painted on 
the wall." 

Judy Peck: "Have an escalator." 

Glenn Wheat: "I don't wnow. That 



would take all day to say." 

Charles Crews: "A few waitresses 
and a bowling alley." 

Helen Wilson: "Keep it clean." 
Oscar Thomas: "Have a back room." 
Norman Ostrander: "Put in another 
ping-pong table." 

Ferrol Fox: "Some high decorat- 
ions." 

Betty Pearson: "Fix it all over." 
James Ledgerwood: "More girls for 
company." 

Marjorie Clark: "I would add some- 
thing, I don't know what."

Tigers Win Two 
From Mavericks 



The Tigers beat the Tonkawa Maver- 
icks on January 4, and again on Jan- 
uary 10, to chalk up their third and 
fourth wins of the season. The first 
game, played on the Ark City court, 
found the Bengals winning handily, 51 
to 2 2. At Tonkawa the following Thurs- 
day the Arks held the Mavericks score- 
less for 17 minutes and went on to win 
42 to 26. 

Ledgerwood was high man for the 
pair of games with 2 8 points, garner- 
ed on 12 goals and four free shots, 
Earl Grinnell was second with nine 
goals and two frees for the two en- 
counters, while "Coyote" Swaim was in 
third slot with 17 points on six goals 
and five frees. J. Morgan of Tonkawa 
sank four of each to lead the Okla- 
homa team in scoring. 

The Arks started the first game off 
with a bang, ringing in goals right and 
left, and led 25 to 8 at the halfway 
mark. Coach Stark substituted freely 
throughout the game, but the Maver- 
icks fared no better at the hands of 
the seconds. Swaim put the Tigers past 
the 50-point mark with a basket in the 
final seconds of play.

Shocker Seconds Edge 
Bengals in 34-40 Clash 

The Tigers suffered their second de- 
feat of the season December 11, when 
they fell 3 4 to 4 before a hard-fight- 
ing team of the Wichita University re- 
serves. Virgil Work led the locals in 
scoring with nine points, while Lusk 
and Fouts paced the Shockers — also 
with nine apiece. 

The Bengals led most of the way, but 
the heavier Wichita squad wore them 
down with frequent substitutions and 
were able to come from behind to win. 
The Tigers led at half-time, 17 to 16. 

Work, Swaim, Grinnell, Ledgerwood, 
Newman, Burns, Givens and Ostrander 
made the trip.

Bengals Lose 
Overtime Game , 

Classy Kanotex Oilers 
Edge Jucos 40-37 In 
Extra Period Contest 

A powerful Kanotex Refiners team, 
composed largely of players from the 
former Winfield Legion team, handed 
the Tigers their third defeat in seven 
contests last Friday as they eased out 
a 4 0-37 overtime win from the Jucos. 

The Oilers led from the midle of the 
first half until a minute before the final 
gun, when a scrapping Tiger team came 
from six points behind to tie up the 
game and send it into the extra period. 
The Kanotex scored the winning point 
on a free throw and followed it with an 
uncontested basket as the gun went off. 

Earl Grinnell was high for the col- 
lege with nine points. Tuttle and Brown 
of the Refiners also had nine. Rod 
Newman was second with seven.

Starkmen Shade Aggies 
32-30 for Second Win 

The Tigers scored their second win 
against two defeats December 14 as 
they downed a powerful Cameron Ag- 
gie team from Lawton, Okla., by a 32- 
3 score. The Arks led all the way, 
but at no time during the game was 
their lead more than five points, and 
it was always in danger. 

"Coyote" Swaim led the scoring for 
the locals with 13 points, tallied on six 
goals and one free. Jim Ledgerwood 
was second for Ark City with 10 points 
on four goals and two free throws. 
Morris Hadley, jumping-jack center, led 
the Aggies with 13 points — six goals, 
scored on a spectator jump shot from 
various positions on the floor, and one 
free throw. Reese was second for Cam- 
eron with 12 points. 

Cameron played four games on the 
road trip, losing to Ark City, to Con- 
tinental Oilers of Ponca City, to St. 
John of Winfield and winning from 
N. O. J. C. of Tonkawa. No return 
game with Cameron is expected due to 
the cost of the trip.

New Students Welcomed 

To the new members of the Base- 
ment University: WELCOME. Follow- 
ing is an explanation to all you dis- 
charged vets: the co-eds here haven't 
quite gotten used to seeing so many 
fellows runnnig around in the halls so 
don't be startled when their mouths 
fall open, their eyes pop, they drop 
their books, and practically fall on 
their faces when you say hello to 
them. In case you are interested you'll 
find that several juco janes know 
enough about algebra or trigonometry 
to be helpful ... or have you already 
discoreved that? 

The students of A. C. J. C. want to 
welcome you to the college. We know 
that your added efforts and enthusiasm 
will make our school bigger and bet- 
ter.

Barnes' "Billionaries" 
Lead "Tycoons" 
By Four Dollars 

A four-dollar lead was held by 
Barnes' "Billionaries" after the war 
bond and stamp sale last Thursday, Jan. 
17. The amounts of money which each 
team has spent at all the sales since 
Nov. 29, 1944, total $1,320.72 for the 
"Billionaries" and $1,316.72 for the 
"Tycoons." 

Only two more sales will be held be- 
fore the close of the contest which has 
been scheduled for Jan. 31. The stu- 
dent council introduced this project 
to the student body in November in 
order to encourage the somewhat lag- 
ging sale of the bonds and stamps. 

The students who were selected by 
the council to captain the teams are 
Carol Barnes and Joan Templar. The 
losing side will give a party for the 
winners. 

The total amount purchased by the 
combined teams has, on the average, 
risen each sale since the beginning of 
the contest. But the percentage of the 
persons who buy was lower last week 
than it was on Nov. 2 9. Only 2 5 per 
cent of the students enrolled in the 
college purchased stamps last Thurs- 
day.

Advantages of This 
College Stressed 
By Marjory Lemell 

A graduate of Simmons College, 
Boston, Ma.^s., Miss Marjorie Lemell 
stressed the opportunities offered by 
this junior college in a talk to all 
girls Thursday morning, January 31, 
in room 21ii. She is co-owner and 
dietician of Friends' Restaurant of 
this city. 

Miss Lemell was introduced by 
Miss Dorothy Nichols who later pre- 
sented the film, "Home Economics as 
a Career". In reporting on a recent 
teachers meeting at Pittsburg, Kans., 
Miss Nichols quoted a well-known 
educational leader who advocated, in 
his speeches there, a broader curricu- 
lum in all junior colleges. 

In connection with this plan Miss 
Lemell said, "Have a well-rounded 
education. Know something about the 
other fellow's work." She also ad- 
vised the girls to learn how to type. 
"In every field typing is always valu- 
able. It saves time." 

"So many of us start into college 
not knowing what we want to do. 
The first year should be a general 
year — maybe the second year too. By 
then you should know what your field 
is, and can spend your last years in 
specializing. 

"There are many careers for wom- 



en: politics, science, teaching, art, 
music, home economics and many 
others. So muicb is at your door if 
you will only open it and seek it. 
Some of the many opportunities in 
the field of home economics are: hos- 
pital dietetics, cafeteria management, 
nutrition, child care, public relations." 
Miss. Lemell approved this junior 
college. She explained that the main 
advantages to students who attend 
here are the lower cost of tuition, 
the lower expense of living and the 
closer association with teachers and 
friends. Credits earned here are ac- 
cepted in all other colleges in the 
country since this is an accredited 
junior college.

Drive is Success 

The March of Dimes ended Thurs- 
day morning, Feb. 7, with a total of 
$309.37, according to Doris Deets, 
chairman of the junior college com- 
mittee in charge of the drive in all 
city schools. 

Bulletins and posters printed in the 
school shops, student speakers sent 
to the grade schools and assemblies 
presented to junior high, senior high 
and junior college student bodies 
highlighted Wednesday, Feb. 6, en- 
couraging students to contribute to

Cupid Has His Day 

TWANG . . .WHIZZ . . .SIGH! Cu- 
pid's on the loose again. Candy, 
flowers, messages — smiles and blush- 
es: all of these are evidence that the 
busy little match-maker is celebrat- 
ing today, Feb. 14, with the same 
enthusiasm and mischievousness which 
has made him famous for so many 
centuries. This is how it b?gan: 

Once upon a time, so this story 
goes, there was a poor old man named 
Valentine who traveled about the 
country doing good deeds for every- 
body. One day a little urchin who al- 
ways carried a bow and some arrows 
fell in with Valentine, and the two 
became great friends. 

As payment for the many wonder- 
ful things Valentine and his pal, Cu- 
pid, did while on earth, the Angels 
set aside one day of each year, on 
which the spirits of Valentine and 
Cupid could again roam the earth. 
Cupid's arrow tips are dipped in a 
love potion, and as he and Saint 
Valentine mingle unseen with mor- 
tals, this sweet-faced sprite sends his 
arrows showering into the hearts of 
millions.

Two assets which any organization 
needs in ordei to be a success are 
spirit and cooperation. It may be truly 
said that the Arkansas City Junior 
College has these two assets. 

The college students are to be com- 
plimented on the work they have ac- 
complished this term. Working to- 
gether and having a good time have 
helped considerably in making our 
junior college one of which we may 
be proud. There has been steadily 
increasing pep at games, there was a 
large contribution to the March of 
Dimes and there is always a good 
attendance at parties and school 
events. 

Now that we have started on the 
right track, let's keep going full 
force.

Jerry Twists Her 
Turban and Gazes 
Into Crystal Ball 

It is the year 195 — , A. D. I see a 
beautiful college building situated 
at the corn 2r of Second Street and 
Fifth Avenue in the fair community 
of Arkansas City, Kans. The campus 
around it is landscaped beaultifully, 
and all the Joes and Janes seem to 
be enjoying life to the fullest. 

Now I decide to satisfy my curios- 
ity by visiting this attractive place. 
As I enter the main hall, I see beauti- 
ful show cases that are filled with 
trophies and plaques which had been 
won by famous football, basketball 
and tennis teams. I suddenly notice 
the fluorescent lighting system and 
the soft, pleasing color scheme of 
the walls and floor. The lockers and 
water fountains operate with the aid 
of an electric eye. And the tempera- 
ture is comfortable and even in every 
room . . neither too hot nor too cold. 

I view everything and everyone on 
the first two floors and, as I ride the 
escalator to the third floor, I begin 
to anticipate something very exciting, 
for in the distance I hear music, 
laughter and a mumble of voices. 

I enter the lush recreation room 
beloved by every Jane and Joe. I am 

astonished at its immensity 

it covers the entire third floor. 

There is a wonderful dance floor, a 
nifty soft drink bar and numerous 
kinds of games; plus a too devine col- 
lection of records and a beautiful rec- 



ord player. The furniture is covered 
with orange leather, and the drapes 
and other accessories are of black and 
orange plaid. The room is, indeed, de- 
corated lavishly. 

Oh, golly, how I wish I were young 
again and could attend the Arkansas 
City Junior College! v

Modlin Returns; 
Print Shop Opened 

The linotype machine, along with 
other equipment in the printing 
room, has been dusted off by a print- 
ing class that is already turning out 
work hand over fist and is looking 
foward to an increasingly busier fu- 
ture. 

A lieutenant senior grade in the 
navy for the last two years, former 
printing instructor Francis Modlin 
resumed his teaching of high school 
and college printing classes at the 
beginning of the second semester. 
Mr. Modlin's return has made it pos- 
sible for the printing department to 
begin its normal activities again and 
thus relieve the inconvenience which 
other departments have been experi- 
encing. 

Beside printing the Tiger Tales, 
Mr. Modlin's classes have, to date, 
tuned out the following: 

March of Dimes posters, attend- 
ance blanks, letter heads for the in- 
dustrial arts department and the sen- 
ior high office, reinstatment after 
absence blanks for the junor high 
office, tickets for the senior play and 
drawing sheets for Mr. Carl Holman's 
mechanical drawing class. 



THE BASEMENT BUZZ 



PECK AND SMITH 



We tried to write a poem 

We tried and tried and tried. 

We even thought of hearts and candy, 

With pretty ribbon tied. 

But the result came out, as you can 

see, as 
HAPPY VALENTINE! ! ! ! 

Fiction or fact: 

If you ever get that tight feeling 
when you're in a small room, it's 
probably because the walls are plas- 
tered! 

Quote-Unquote: 

B. A. Tubbs — "Ceiling absolute, 
visibility unlimited." 

Mike Justice — "They just call me 
radar, I pick up everything." 

Mr. Stark (in assembly) — "If we 
lose any more games, we'll have to 
get an all-girl team." 

Valentine's Day comes but once a 

year, 
So these are some titles we wish to 

add here: 
Vivacious — "Fuzzy" Sewell 
Amiable — Gilda Gainer 
Little — Virginia Pinkston 
Energetic — Jack Rine 
Naughty but Nice — H. J. Brady 



Talkative— Glenn Wheat 
Intelligent — Louise Benshoof 
Nice — Leslie Douglas 
Eyefull — Barbara Putnam 
"Smiley" — Bryon Stiles 
Da?hing — Carl Holman 
Alluring — Mary Edith Gibson 
Yea Tigers — Basketball team

Improvements for 
Suggested by Co 

"How would you improve the Ti-

Here are some of the answers: 

Jack Carter: "A ping pong table 
would be swell." 

Betty Blackburn: "Men, give me 
men." 

Judy Peck: "Different decorations." 

Beverly Godfrey: "I don't think 
there is much room for improvement. 
Last year's Tigerama was swell."

Meet Ml. C<t 

"The happiest moment of my life 
was when I secured my discharge 
from the navy," said ou|r Mr. Ed, 
who spent ever three years in the 
navy as a second class aviation ma- 
chinist's mate. He believes that the 
government's GI bill of Rights gives 
all veterans a wonderful opportunity, 
which they would be foolish to dis- 
regard. 

A graduate of the local high school 
in 1941, he wishes to become an auto- 
motive engineer, but sometimes won- 
ders if it would not be much easier 
to "just settle as a school-teacher". 

Mr. Ed dislikes, more than any- 
thing else, to hear people continually 
bring up the war and its heroic deeds. 
He believes that they should be for- 
gotten, since the war is over. 

Unable to express any real dis- 
likes, Mr. Ed likes to see June All- 
yson and Gary Cooper act. His favor- 
ite song is "Danny Boy". 

Mr. Ed states that he will never 
forget a trip which he and two of his 
friends made to California after their 
high school graduation in his 1929 
car. "It was a happy moment when 
we finally got back to Ark City on 
four tires and a prayer", said Mr. 
Ed, whom everyone knows as Gene 
Bell.

A short skit was presented by the

Meet Mm Go-£d 

If you see spots before your eyes, 
don't be alarmed, it's just those 
black-spotted glasses that belong to 
an unpredictable freshman gal. She 
is Betty Ann Pearson, Miss Coed for 
the week. 

"Bappy" likes dancing, playing 
bridge, yellow sweaters, and 400's at 
Fesler's. She plays the piano and 
cello, and is an assistant organist at 
the Presbyterian Church. 

When asked about the future, she 
said, "My plans are indefinite — ■ 
very!" Which leads us to one last 
remark — that honor sweater she has 
been sporting belongs to an ACJC 
grad who should be back from Europe 
any day now.

Tigers Win 
Rough Game 

In a game which almost ended in a 
f ree-f or- all fight, the Tigei s stavtd off 
a desperate rally by the Wichita U. 
seconds to shade the shockers 33 to 
32. One Wichita player was banished 
from the game in the last minute for 
too much arguing with the officials 
and an Ark City player, Byron Stiles, 
was forced to leave the game because 
of a cut over his right eye which re- 
quired three stitches. 

Rough Game 

The game was rough and dirty most 
of the time with only a small per- 
centage of actual fouls being called. 
Ark City jumped into an early lead 
but had to break a 19-19 tie later in 
the game to get it back. 

Golf, Wichita forward, was high 
for the game with 13 points. He was 
closely followed by Willis Shelhamer 
with 12. 

Early Lead 

W. Shelhamer and Ledgerwood put 
Ark City into 9 to 3 lead with 12 
minutes gone, and Shelhamer and 
Work added another point to this 
margin as the half ended 17 to 10, 
Ark City. Wichita came back in the 
second half with a spurt to pull even 
at 19-19. At this time the Shelhamer 
to Shelhamer combination really went 
to work, netting the Bengals six con- 
secutive points and a lead which held 
throughout the remainder of the 
game. 

The Ark reserves entered the game 
with one minute to play, and Wichita 
scored two quick baskets to whittle 
down a five point lead to a margin 
of a single counter. Another Wichita 
drive was broken up by two Tiger 
defense men, and Byron Stiles suffer- 
ed a bad cut over his eye when his 
head hit tha floor. 

Virgil Work missed a free shot 
for Stiles, but Wichita had no time 
to do anything with the ball as the 
final gun sounded.

Bengals Win 51-43 
For Sixth Victory 

The Bengals avenged their only de- 
feat suffered in junior college compe- 
tition January 29 bv defeating St. 
John's College of Winfield 51 to 43. 
Ark City trailed 1 to 7 before getting 
its first basket, but came from behind 
to take a 24-21 halftime advantage, 
and went on to pile up a 14-point lead 
before the seconds entered the game. 

The Shelhamer boys, Jim and Wil- 
lis, led the Tigers in scoring with 16 
and 11 points respectively. Ledger- 
wood was next for the Arks with 10 
points. 

Lueking led the Johnnies with 13 
points while Stelmachowicz had 11, 
Groerich, 10, and Resner, 8. 

This was the sixth victory of the 
season for the Tigers. 



TIGER CLAWS 

BY BOB DELLINGER 

The Tigers will make a strong bid 
for the state championship in basket- 
ball in the tournament at El Dorado 
on March 1 and 2. Most of the major 
junior college teams will be repre- 
sented in the tourney, including the 
local representatives. 

The Bengals of '46, by the way, 
are considered one of the best teams 
in the school history and from this 
corner (also several others) look like 
a good thing to back in the coming 
state comuetition. 

The Tigers have lost only one 
game this year to junior college 
competition, and although the eastern 
teams have pretty much shied away 
from Ark City, a fair comparison can 
be reached through El Dorado. 

Although the El Dorado tourney 
is strictly unofficial as far as 
eligibility rules go, it should pretty 
well determine which of the juco 
teams rate the title "state champs". 

A state junior college track meet 
will be held this spring at Fort Scott. 
Ark City expects to send a team to 
this event. 

We'll be glad to see our speedy 
basketball captain, Norman Ostr- 
ander, back on the court again after 
his current seige of the mumps. 
Hurry back, Norman; we'll be watch- 
ing for that familiar no. 25 jersey.

The Feminine Touch 

BY TEMP 

The volleyball team of the college 
girls' gym class met those of the 
high school seniors, juniors and soph- 
omores at different dates during the 
last two weeks of January. 

The college eight made an easy 
win over the seniors. The score read 
32-12 at the end of the two ten-min- 
ute periods. Poor teamwork on the 
part of the seniors left them at the 
mercy of the steady JUCO playing... 

The senior team had, at an earlier 
date, downed the sophomore team, but 
the college squad didn't quite make 
the grade. Warming up in the last 
few minutes of the game, the JUCO's 
almost overtook the sophomores. The 
score was 23-21 in the younger girl's 
favor when time was called. 

The JUCO eight lost to the juniors 
with a score of 27-21. The loss was 
accounted for by the absence of 
"Stink" Floyd from the team that 
day. A tall, capable player like that 
gal is hard to find. 

Those who played on the college 
volleyball team are: Beulah Marshall, 
(captain), Betty Jo Floyd, Barbara 
Garris, Betty Ann Pearson, Wanda 
Dixon, Gloria Ausmus, Shirley Gil- 
liland, Joan Templar and Helen Wil- 
son. 

Basketball practice has been star- 
ted in the gym class. A basketball 
tournament will be held in the same 
manner as the one for volleyball. 



Next Date Unset 

The date of the tigers' next game 
is as yetu-'d^cidedas Friends Univer- 
sity has declined to meet the fast- 
moving Bengals. 

The next regularly scheduled game, 
with Dodge City here on Feb. 22, will 
probably be postponed due lo conflic- 
ting dates with the El Dorado tourney 
in which both teams are entered. The 
tourney was originally scheduled for 
March 1 and 2, but was advanced one 
week. 

The Tigers have won eight and lost 
three for ^n average of .727, and 
have scored 40 or more points in all 
but three games.

Arks Down Dodge 
In 48-43 Thriller 

The Tigers rr.ng up their seventh 
victory of th" sen son last Saturday 
night as they edg-^d out a 48-43 thnl- 
ler from the Dodge City Conqs. The 
score was tied with less than two min- 
utes to play, but the Arks rang in 
two quick baskets to put the game 
on ice. 

Willis Shelhamer, playing the last 
22 minutes of the game, rang up six 
roals and three ^rees for 15 points 
to load Ark City in scoring. Jim 
Shelhamer and Jim T .edgerwood were 
second and third for the Bengals with 
13 and 12 points respectively. Scoring 
honors for the game went to Imel, 
6' 4 1 /2" Dodge City center, who hit 
seven goals and seven frees for 21 
points. 

The grame was close all the way 
with Ark Cit^ holding a slim but 
unsafe lead through most of the con- 
test. The Bengals held a 21 to 18 
half time lead.

Grizzlies Fall Again 
Before Arks, 53-29 

The Ark City Tigers rang up their 
fifth win of the year by defeating the 
El Dorado Grizzlies 53 to 29 on Jan- 
uary 25. The Grizzlies brought an 
entirely different team than the one 
the Arks had beaten earlier this sea- 
son, but the new squad fared no better 
against the rejuvenated Tigers. 

Jim Shelhamer, playing in his third 
game since his return to school, toss-d 
in shots from every angle to walk off 
with the scoring honors. Shelhamer 
scored 12 goals and three free shots. 
Runner-up in scoring was Jim Ledg- 
erwood, Bengal center, who caged 
five goals and a pair of frees for 12 
points. Binter and Beal of El Dorado 
tied with Grinnell of Ark City with 
six ooints each 

The Bengals jumped into an early 
lead and led 25 to 12 at the half. El 
Dorado never threatened after the 
first few seconds of play. 

The Ark City "B" team lost the 
preliminary game to the Grizzly sec- 
onds 13 to 41. Everett Crouse led 
the Tigers with four points.

Formals for 
Coming Event 

A formal banquet for the basket- 
ball team with that "something-new- 
has-been-added" flavor will be a nov- 
el but pleasant experience for juco 
socialites next Friday, March 15, in

Smith and Rosalee Jones as candidates 
for this honor. 

Promise Fine Program 

Program planners Jack Rine, 
Harold Brady, Barbara Putnam and 
Betty Ann Pearson have arranged to 
have musical selections during the

around for entertainment ideas, this 
group discovered some heretofore un- 
known talents which give promise of 
a fine program. Harold Brady will be 
toastmaster. 

Sell Tickets Monday 

Ticket sales for the banquet will 
begin Monday, Mar. 11. Those in 
charge are Lenna Payton, Jack Rine 
and Joan Templar. Tickets may be 
purchased at 75 cents each. Members 
of the basketball squad will not be 
required to buy them. 

Betty Ann Pearson, over-all chair- 
man for the banquet, lists as follows 
the committees working under her 
supervision: 

Members of the decorating com- 
mittee are Barbara Putnam, Harold 
Brady, Posalee Jones, Jeanne Kin- 
cheloe and Willis Shelhamer. On the 
food committee are Lenna Payton 
and James Shelhamer. In charge of 
advertising and balloting are James 
Shelhamer and Joan Templar.

Pooks Balanced by Eustice, 
Cashier of Concession Stand 

Betty Eustice's work as cashier of 
the concession stand in the auditor- 
ium-gymnasium terminated last week 
wi f h the close of the basketball 
sepson. 

Betty accepted this responsibility 
last fall in answer to a student coun- 
cil request for volunteers. She has 
been at her post during every home 
game managing it efficiently despite 
shortage of candy, gum and soda pop. 
A different group of volunteers assist- 
ed her at each game. 

The profits earned by the concession 
stand this winter will be used by the 
social committee for the Tigerama.

C. E., D. C, and P. M. were 
seen floating down the hall on 
Tuesday morning, Feb. 19. (Could 
it have been Barbara Putnam's 
new hair-do or Joyce Sewell's 
"Tuya" perfume?) They drifted 
into the foods room. Yes, they 
had been hypnotized by the smell 
of FRIED CHICKEN! (Just like 
a man!) 

It seems that Charlie Hinchee 
had become tired of having his 
college chorus members come 
craw ing into class and drop at 
his feet saying "food, food," so 
he set aside Feb. 19 as "eat day". 
Everyone brought a covered dish 
and he furnished the fried chick- 
en. Barbara Garris was in charge 
of arrangements for the dinner. 
Every speck of food was de- 
voured ravishly. The only regret 
of the group was that a siesta 
could not follow the meal.

Mardi Gras Celebration Is 
Observed by French Club 

The French Club met March 5th in 
the college club rooms to celebrate 
the French festival, Mardi Gras. This 
festival marks the beginning of lent 
and is celebrated in France and the 
United States with parades, parties 
and feasts. 

Betty Smith conducted the business 
meeting of the club in the absence of 
the president, Marjcrie Crabtree. 

A French spelling bee was held and 
other French games were played with 
Cilda Gainer in charge of entertain- 
ment. 

Hostesses Beverly Godfrey and Jess 
Griffen served refreshments from a 
table centered with paper hats, masks, 
horns and confetti.

Everyone Urged To Roll Up 
Sleeves And Get To Work. 
Money And Labor Needed 

Plans are underway for the imme- 
diate redecoratingof the junior college 
club room, according to Shirley Gill- 
iland, manager, and Jean Humphrey, 
assistant manager. Others in charge 
are Dale Smith, Betty Smith and Nor- 
man Moody. 

The first project of the group will 
be to repair the furniture. This will 
consist of having the springs tied and 
recovering and varnishing the furni- 
ture. Betty and Jean will select the 
material for the upholstering. 

The second project will be to obtain 
a record container so that records will 
STAY in the club room. Norman is in 
charge of this and also of having the 
ping pong table refinished. 




Gilliland and Humphrey 

The group also plans to have the 
coke machine repaired or replaced. 
Redecorating the walls will be taken 
up as a later project. Since the furni- 
ture is used at the Tigerama, the 
group has turned its attention to it 
first. 

Shirley disclosed that the redecorat- 
ing program will be financed partly 
by proceeds from the college play and 
and an assembly which will beheld the 
latter part of April but that all of the 
students will have to contribute and 
help make it a success. Dale Smith 
is the finance chairman. 



Change of Plans 



Announcement has been made 
by Betty Ann Pearson that the 
pr>e of the tickets for the basket- 
ball banquet has been changed 
from seventy-five to sixty cents. 
The tickets will go on sale Mon-

Gives Green Light to Plans 
For Formal Banquet and 
Election of Basketball Queen 

Student Council Approves Committee Suggested by Pearson, 
Putman and Templar for Coming Social Event. Confab with 
Freshman Threesome Lays Groundwork for Future Action. 



Freshmen Betty Ann Pearson, 
Barbara Putnam and Joan Templar 
brought complaints and suggestions 
before the student council Tuesday, 
Feb. 19. 

As spokesman for the group, Betty 
Ann first presented plans for a formal 
banquet to be given in honor of the 
basketball team on the tentative date 
March 15. She recommended to the 
council that a special committee be 
appointed for the banquet since "the 
social committee has worked and is 
working so hard on other parties". 

After brief discussion the council 
unanimously o.k.'d the proposal and 
approved the following persons for 
membership on the special committee: 

Betty Ann Pearson (chairman), 
Joan Templar, Barbara Putman, 
James Shelhamer, Harold Brady, 
Lenna Payton and Jack Rine. 

Redecorating the club room was 
Betty Ann's next topic. "We have 
lots of talent here in school," she 
argued, — kids who can paint .... 
girls could sew .... artists could 
make murals. We need a manager for 
the club room who would get im- 
provements underway. 

Accepting her suggestion, the 
council elected Shirley Gilliland and 
Jean Humphrey manager and assist- 
ant manager for redecorating the 
club room. Dale Smith, Norman 
Moody and Betty Smith are other 
members of this committee. 

Betty Ann continued, "We're all 
getting tired of going down to the 
study hall, having role call and then 
leaving. We want programs . . . the 
assembly committee could appoint a 
new assembly chairman each week." 

Council president B.A. Tubbs in- 
formed the freshman visitors that the 
planning of assembly programs was 
entirely out of the hands of the 
council and referred them to the 
assembly committee chairman and 
faculty advisor. 

At the close of the meeting Betty 
Ann showed the council members the 
junior college flag. Miss Henrietta 
Courtright, council faculty advisor, 
suggested that the flag be used at the 
last basketball game of this season, 
that the high school band be asked to 
play for the game and that the school 
song- be sung. "But we'd better have 
a session over here first to learn the 
song," she added.

And then there's the incident in 
Rhetoric when Billy Joe Smith called

What's Good Enough for Grandma U.S.-U.S.S.R. 



Ain't Good Enough for Smith 



I was staring with feeling of 
ignorance and apprehension at a pec- 
uliar piece of furniture. What was 
it supposed to be for? Was it to be 
sat upon? Was it to rock a baby in? 
Was it a fancy footstool ? It was a 
beautiful piece of woodwork, but 
what was it doing in the living room 
if its use was doubtful ? Could be 
embarrassing, you know. 

Mrs. Luce Tongue was babbling on 
and on, her hands flopping, pointing, 
making numerous quaint gestures 
about the room. She was getting up a 
full head of steam and the conver- 
sation was anything but a two sided 
or mutual affair. 

"Ah, Ah, don't sit on that chair. 
Honestly, you won't believe how much 
I paid for it. Guess. Oh you'd never 
guess it in a week! See that certain 
little thingeroo that winds around the 
what-cha-ma-callit? Well, that is a 
sign that it is a genuine antique made 
around 1795. Oh you can't fool me on 
antiques! I never trust anyone to sit 
on my Dolly Madison chair or that 
red plu h sofa. They cost me, oh, so 
much money, anxiety and work. I was 
frightfully worried for fear Mrs. 
Snatcher Grabbit would get her self- 
ish fingers on them before I could. 
Why her antiques aren't really an- 
tiques at all. She just puts up a front. 

Mrs. Luce Tongue's house is a pic- 
ture of pioneer days all mixed up. 
Her frail chair can't be sat upon. Her 
fancy lamps aren't used. Her hooked 
rugs aren't to be walked upon. Her 
spindly antique table is too small for 
a useful lamp and too misshapen for 
a decent doilie to fit. 

When one does sit in one of her 
useable antique setees or chairs, h3 
must sit primly upright or get his 
neck chafed by a hard piece or orn ate 



Social Committee Says Plans 
Under Way for Tigerama; 
Sets Date for April 26 

Initial arrangements for the forth- 
coming Tigerama are well under way, 
with April 26th scheduled by the col- 
lege calendar as the date for the 
event. The Tigerama, tradi'iDnal 
highlight of the spring term, was 
revived last year after ha" ing been 
discontinued during wartime. 

Guests will be membeis of the gra 1- 
uating class of the local high school, 
seniors and their sponsors from neigh- 
boring communities and faculty mem- 
bers and their wives. 

Social chairman, Helen Jane B-^at- 
son, has appointed Glen Wheat, Clin- 
ton Keller, Lois Caster, Judy Peck 
and Jack Carter as committee chair- 
men in charge of a band, invitations, 
program, decorations and r oJV esh-

and the printing classes will arrange 
for invitations, admittance tickets 
and dance cards. Miss Henrietta

carving. The springs have surprising- 
ly little springiness. The light from 
her gaudy old electrified chandeliers 
is too bright to look at and too dim to 
read by. 

When Mr. Tongue wants a quiet 
evening at home, what does he do? 
Help Madam Tongue ref inish her lat- 
est prize and aid her in finding one 
more square foot of available space 
for it in the cluttered house. When 
the couple go riding in the car on his 
day off, where do they end up ? At 
some junk shop where Luce declares 
she sees a genuine antique at a bar- 
gain. 

"Oh yes! That black pot simply 
must be pure copper under all that 
dirt and grease". Hubby dear can 
clean that for her and hang it on a 
crane in the fireplace. Hubby dear 
really wishes that all the sturdy old 
pioneers and plantation aristocrat 
had smashed every stick of furniture 
they ever owned about every 50 years. 
He can't have his friends in for a 
little card game because of the un- 
comfortable, stuffy feeling in the 
house and the frailty of the furniture. 

Think now of modern furniture art. 
Long, low, roomy chairs grace the 
restful living room. Soft colors blend 
Lamps are useful for light, and still 
bautiful to look at. Only the neces- 
sary articles are used. Comfort and 
utility combined produce beauty of 
matchless simplicity. 

Washington, Governor Winthrop 
and Dolly Madison all left their fur- 
riture as a contribution to style and 
and progress. Our times, our youth, 
our ingenuity must also leave a gift 
to progress, something to character- 
ize our own century. Develop your 
own taste; and look ahead, not for- 
ever to the past.

Clash Is Main 
Hope Of Nazis 

Doman Reports G.I.'s in 
Germany Swallowing 
Propoganda. Poll Taken., 

"We have failed in re-educating 
the Germans," said Czechoslovakian- 
born Nicholas Doman in a lecture to 
the college and high school student 
bodies Friday morning, Feb. 15, in the 
junior high auditorium. 

Dr. Doman, recently returned from 
Europe, explained that the American 
plan to re-educate the Nazis had 
boomeranged and that in reality "the 
Nazis are re-educating some of our 
G.I.'s. A poll conducted among U.S. 
soldiers in the American occupation 
zone showed that 15 percent of our 
soldiers in Germany approve of the 
Nazi aggression." 

As an American observer at the 
Nurenburg war-crimes trial, Dr. Do- 
man watched and studied the Nazi 
leaders and the German people. He 
believes that the latter have been so 
fully indoctrinated with Nazi propa- 
ganda that the downfall of their lead- 
ers is "of no consequence". The Ger- 
mans still believe that their country 
will be victorious. It will not be many 
years, they reason, until the U.S. and 
the U.S.S.R. destroy each other. 
Third World War? 

Dr. Doman assured his listeners 
that it was imperative to establish a 
world police force in order to avoid 
the Nazi-propagandized war with 
Russia. 

"Today the national state cannot 
provide its own security", he said. 
"The world has two and one-half 
great powers — U.S., U.S.S.R. and 
Great Britain. A world war can break 
out only between Russia and the 
United States. . .And as long as there 
are two independent armies in the 
world, they are bound to clash. 
U. S. More Popular than Russia 

"Most Europeans are afraid of 
Russia — its political dictatorship gov- 
ernment and its imperialistic desire 
for economic dominance. They are 
more sympathetic to the U.S. and 
would like to see the U.S. exert her 
influence more than ever before. The 
U.S. has the greatest influence in the 
UNO — Russia joined the UNO because 
it cannot face, alone, the whole world.

Lights, lights everywhere, 
All students they do sigh. 
Lights, lights everywhere. 
But, alas, no lights to read by. 

How about some GOOD lights in 
the study hall ? 

All in favor of beginning a better- 
lighting - system-in-the-study - hall 

campaign say "Aye" The 

"Eyes" have it. 

Think what it would be like if, be- 
cause of the very bad lights in our 
study hall, everyone developed weak 
eyes. It might be like this: 

With bleary, thick-lensed glasses 
our dim eyes barely perceive feeble 
glimmers of light as we grope blindly 
through the subterranean passage- 
ways of the Arkansas City Junior 
College. Cursing to ourselves, we 
fumble desperately with that most 
abominable of tormentors .... the 
combination padlock. Madly our 
hands feel over that unfathomable 
maze at the bottom of the locker, 
searching for books or pencils. Girls 
bulmp into their best friends in the 
hallway, but instead of telling them 
how lovely their dress is or how 
stunning their new hair-do is, they 
tell them, for example, "Why, Mable, 
how well your voice is sounding to- 
day! You must be using that new 
Lady Esther voice tonic." 

Lugging our huge, Braille text- 
books (that is, if we are among the 
lucky one percent who get to Harry 
Long's first) we slowly find our way 
to the study hall. As long as we man- 
age to stay awake in the warm, 
breathless atmosphere of that quiet 
( ? ) room, we feel over the pages 
intently. Doesn't anyone ever open a 
window around here? 

Don't worry, this isn't the picture 
of the Arkansas City Junior College 
yet, but just imagine how wonderful 
it would be if we had fluorescent lights 
in every room ? Here are some 
sensible arguments upon which we 
can base our campaign: 

(1) A fluorescent lighting system 
can be maintained at a lower cost 
than an electric system. 

(2) If the junior high school can 
afford fluorescent lighting in their 
study hall and library, why can't we?

Third: Dodge City Conqs 
Fourth: Ark City Tigers 
Consolation: Chanute 

The Tigers finished fourth in the El 
Dorado invitational junior college 
tournament in spite of the loss at a 
crucial moment of three first-string 
guards, Norman Ostrander, Earl 
Grinnell, and Rodney Newman. 

The Tigers set a season high in 
their first round game as they trounc- 
ed Fort Scott's Greyhounds, 61 to 44. 
In the semi-finals they turned in 
their best game of the year, only to 
lose to a high-geared Kansas City 
team, 59 to 62, in the highest scoring 
game ever played on the El Dorado 
court. Then the weary Bengals went 
out to meet a red-hot team from 
Dodge City and came back on the 
short end of a 54-36 score, as Neil 
Imel, giant Conq center, ran away 
with 24 points before fouling out in 
the closing minutes of the second half. 

El Dorado Grizzlies, the home 
team, pulled a surprising upset over 
K^nsps City in the finals to walk off 
with the championship, while Chanute 
took the consolation championship 
from Independence. 

Willis and Jim Shelhamer led the 
Tigers through the tourney with 43 
and 41 points respectively for three 
games. Ledgervood got 18 from the 
center post, while Os Thomas with 19, 
and Virgil Work with 17 led the 
guards. Norman Moody, recent addi- 
to the guard post, had 8 points. Other 
second stringers, who played only in 
the opener against Fort Scott, were 
Sam Burns with 8, Stiles with 3, Dell- 
inper with 1, and Crouse. 

Imel of Dod^e City scored 24 points 
aeainst the Bengals, while Frank 
Terry, another big boy, scored 21 for 
Kansas City.

TIGER CLAWS 

BY BOB DELLINGER 

A man who truly s 
deserves much cred- 
it and recognition is 
Coach Dan Stark, 
pictured at right, 
who brought forth 
a fighting tiger 
team this year. His 
time an d efforts 
should be appreciat- 
ed by the whole 
student body. Had 
it not been for the Stark 

loss of three star players, Coach 
Stark's Bengals would have probably 
taken first or second place in the 
state finals. 




The Bengals wound up the 1945-46 
basketball season with a record of 10 
wins and six losses for a percentage 
of .625. They won nine and lost four 
against junior college competition and 
finished fourth in the state tourney 
dr spite the loss of two first string 
guards. It seems to us that the Ti- 
gers made a good showing this year, 
and they deserve a rating as one of 
the best teams in juco history. Only 
one loss was greater than six points, 
and one game went into an overtime 
period before it was finally decided 
in favor of the powerful Kanotex 
squad. 



The T igers will turn to track 
n«xt \vi h good prospects in the 
offing. Norman Ostrander and 
Jim Shelhamer, two of the fast- 
est bovs in the state, (to judge 
from those we saw at the El Dor- 
ado basketball tourney) should 
prove a whale of an asset in the 
dashes, and lots of other good 
men are enrol'ed and will be out 
there trying. The state meet will 
be held at Fort Scott sometime 
this spring. The team will be un- 
der *he direction of Coach Dan 
Stark. 



The Tigers set two scoring records 
for the El Dorado court in their 
H-f ™tay at El Dorado last week. 
The Kansas City game (59-62) pro- 
vided the higest score foi both teams 
in anv ga^e ever played at the El 
Dorado gym, while Ark City also set 
a record for high scoring in their 
first, two game with a total of 120 
points in two consecutive contests. 

Kansas City was the best passing 
team at the tournment, and if El Dor- 
ado had not had the advantage of be- 
ing the home team, would have walk- 
ed off "nth the finals. We admit that 
the Grizzlies are 100 Abetter than 
when they last played the Tigers, but 
we still maintain that they wouldn't 
have had to go through the same or- 
deal of waiting in hotel lobbies, eat- 
ing out, etc., as their opponents did. 



Dodge Wins 
In Last Game 

Banquet Honoring Basketball 
Squad To Be Friday, March 15; 
Queen Will Be Crowned 

A powerful Dodge City J. C. team, 
led by its giant center, Neil Imel with 
19 points, came from behind to over- 
come the Tigers in the season-ending 
game for both clubs. Big Imel, although 
he did not walk off with game scor- 
ing honors, controlled most of the re- 
bounds, and fed constantly to his two 
forwards, Gibbons and Rusmey, who 
accounted for 11 and 9 points respec- 
tively. The final score was 51 to 42. 
Ark City led at the half, 23 to 19. 

Will Shelhamer took scoring honors 
for the game with 20 points. Jim Shel- 
hamer was runnerup for the Tigers 
with eight, while Grinnell and Ledge- 
rwood each had six. Ledgerwood left 
the game midway in the last half on 
five personals. 

The Arks kept a short lead early in 
the second half, but the Conqs began 
to roll after about four minutes of the 
final period had elapsed and were 
never headed after that. Both coaches 
substituted in the closing minutes and 
Coach Ev Shelton of Dodge used all 
eight of his squad members through- 
out most of the game. 

This was the third meeting between 
the two teams with the Tigers holding 
a 48 to 43 win at Dodge, and the Conqs 
holding a record of defeating the 
Tigers worse than any other team this 
season has been able to do, as they 
lambasted the Arks 54 to 36 in the 
third place playoffs at the El Dorado 
tourney.

The Club . . 

No score and four years ago the 
junior college club room was estab- 
lished. The students painted, donated 
money and had an all out effort to 
decorate an empty room and make it 
into a place of pleasure for those be- 
tween-hour lulls. If a picture of the 
club rooms had been taken in 1942, 
there would be a marked difference 
between it and the one sketched above 
by Jack Carter. 

Torn magazines, incomplete decks 



Oh Brother! 

of cards and broken bottles and rec- 
ords are of use to no one. We have 
had the room decorated and furnished 
for us by former students and it is 
our duty to keep it in good order. A 
few simple rules should be set up and 
observed. 

Shirley Gilliland and her clean-up 
committee are hard at work on re- 
habilitating the club room but they 
will need our support. Let's all work 
together and restore it to its original 
status. 



Quiet Please! 
Men at Study 

Poor vets! Especially those who 
have taken up their "book-larning" 
again within the last few weeks. 
Plunging into the middle of an aver- 
age college semester . . . '"ain't" easy. 

No extra-curricular work, please, 
they beg when asked to help out on a 
committee or appear on a program. 
Then they hastily thrust their nose 
back into their book. They . . . that is 
a large number of them . . . don't 
come to the parties either. 

These newly-turned civilians have 
been playing a fast, furious game 
ever since they set foot over the 
junior college threshold . . . that of 
dodging all the girls who are throw- 
ing themselves at them. Direct hits 
have been made by a few ferns. 

Hand on hips, many juco janes 
view with disgust the "I've - got - to- 
study - and - get - all - I - can - out - 
of - college" attitude of the "G-I-Bill- 
of-Rights". With the word, all work 
and no play, on their lips they plan 
and scheme to divert the interest of 
helpless veterans. 

In the study hall dewey-eyed damsel 
drops into the chair opposite hard- 
working ex-serviceman and engages 



him in entertaining conversation for 
the rest of the hour. Result: one-half 
calculus problem worked. 

The smarter babe follows some- 
what the same tactics, but doesn't 
act the least bit smart. Can you help 
poor little me with this beastly hard 
algebra problem, she implores, with 
"O-you-wonderful-man" look in her 
eyes.

Photo by Pyer. 



Marjorie Clark was crowned bas- 
ketball queen at a formal banquet 
honoring the basketball team held 
Friday night, Mar. 15, at the Central 
Christian church. 

Despite the threat of a downpour, 
over one hundred students and fac- 
ulty rr embers attended. 

Th^ identity of the queen was re- 
vealed by Daniel C. Stark, coach of 
the . basketball team. He presented 
the attractive sophomore with a 
crown of red, purple and silver which 
was made by Emmet Smith. Norman 
Ostrander, captain of the team, gave 
her a nosegay of roses, sweetpeas, 
carnations and iris on behalf of the 
team. 

The queens attendants, who had 
also been nominees for the honor, are 
Betty Smith and Rosalee Jones. Judy 
Peck, a fourth nominee, was unable 



to be present because of illness. Betty 
and Rosalee were seated on either 
sid^ of the satin-covered throne. Each 
nomine:' received a coronet of pink 
s\ ec peas. 

Following the coronation, Coach 
Stark introduced the team members. 

Decorations included vari-colored 
crepe paper streamers. Programs 
^ e 1 ' ; n the form of enrdbo^rd basket- 
balls and place-cards were miniature 
baskeibsll goals made of pipe clean- 
ers and held in place by green gum- 
drops, displaying in the goals on 
paper "basketballs" the names of the 
individuals attending. 

K. R. Galle, dean, returned grace. 

Harold B v ady, master of ceremon- 
ies, presided over the following pro- 
gram. 

Two numbers by the college trio, 
Erleen Morhain, Gloria Ausmus, and 



Genevieve Goff, accompanied by Miss 
Connie Brown; an after-dinner speech 
by Billy Jo Smith; a reading by Betty 
Jo Floyd; two impromptu duets by 
Norman Moody and James Shel- 
hamer and Jack Rine and Ned Pratt; 
an encore by the trio; two numbers 
by a boys' quartet composed of B. A. 
Tubbs, Edward Sanabria, Glen Burns, 
and Glenn Wheat; group singing led 
by Betty Ann Pearson and Genevieve 
Goff; and a closing speech by Melville 
Marnix. 

The dinner was served by the Twen- 
tieth Century class of the Christian 
church. 

The committee in charge of the 
banquet includes Betty Ann Pearson, 
Joan Templar, Harold Brady, Barbara 
Putnam, Lenna Payton, James Shel-

Many brickbats as well as bouquets

receive both good and bad comments 
on the paper. 

If you have any suggestions on how 
to improve the paper, don't talk— act! 
It has been rumored that some juco 
joes and janes know details of certain 
events that never appear in the paper 
but yet they do not inform any of the 
staff members of this fact. It is 
impossible for us to be everywhere at 
once in order to get the inside dope on 
all the happenings around A. C. J. C. 

A box has been placed in the club

there all year but nothing has been 
placed in it. So if you have any choice 
bit of news or gossip that you think 
should appear in print or any com- 
ments for improving the paper, write 
them out and put them in this box. 
You need not sign your name. 

The Tiger Tales is not the publi-

Editor's Note: This letter was pre- 
sented to the Tiger Tales staff with 
permission to print it if Ihe author's 
name were witheld. It does not nec- 
essarily express the views of this 
paper. 

Dear Tiger Tales Editor, 

Can't you do something about the 
racket that drifts hourly intothe upper 
halls of A.C.H.S.? 

I am suspicious that this noise emits 
from the college club room which we 
know to be the meeting place of all 
B. U. loafers. Of course we don't mind 
a good swing band but when we have 
to take Frank Sinatra with English 
literature Well! 

You know what? I can hardly wait 
till I'm a juco myself. Boy! Willi ever 
have an easy life! Just sitting in the 
club room playing bridge, or talking 
wih my buddies; I might even play a 
game of ping pong once in awhile or 
just work up an appetite for a coke. 



When it's springtime in Kansas, 
And the buds start to bloom, 
A little bug makes his appear- 
ance, 
And young hearts go "Boom, 

boom !" 
Ah, this 111* fellow doesn't have 
specific action, (Note Mr. 
Ruff.) 
He bites one regardless of fac- 
tion. 
We might as well tell you, 'cause .... 

you've probably guessed. 
This fellow is the Love Bug. Boy! 
Ain't he a jest? 
However, it seems that Mr. Love Bug 
isn't the ony bug who's been doing his 
work around these parts, for Freddie 
Flu germ has been having a rush 
business too. His latest \ictim is none 
other than Judy Peck. So, for this 
issue, Marjorie Nugen is serving as 
guest editor. 

Daffinations — 

Mississippi Highball — glass of

Buccaneer — Too darned much to 

pay for an ear of corn. 
Pink Elephant — beast of bourbon. 
Oboe — ill wood-wind that nobody 

blows good. 
Morning — time of day when 

rising generation retires and 

retiring generation rises. 
Flattery — perfumeto besmelled,

True Music Lover — Man who, 

upon hearing a soprano in the

An accomplished member of the 
faculty is C. E. Ruff who, besides all 
his other outstanding talents, has 
made himself eligible to join the piano 
movers union. 

Even though the Virginia ham 

at the basketball banquet WAS 



"dazed", it was delicious. Betty 
Ann, you're forgiven for the mis- 
take. The banquet was super, and 
you deserve most of the credit for 
making it a success. We hate to 
usethat trite editorial expression, 
"school spirit", again, but we think 
B. U. is getting some of its pre- 
war "spi^z" back again. Let's 
keep up the good work. 

Musical notes (heard around): 

1. Glenn Burns giving out in assembly 
"Slowly" in that dreamy Frank 
Sinatra manner. 

2. Eddie Sanabria dramatically sing- 
ing "Don't Be a Baby, Baby!" 
(Possibilities .... eh what?) 

3. Mile. Barbara Garris singingFrench 
in her best tenor at operetta prac- 
tice. 

4. "Stink" Floyd's clever skit at the 
basketball banquet. Templar, you 
were right in there too! 

5. Now last but not least, the "do" 
room. Come on, you guys and gals 
needed for redocoratir.g the club 
.... dig down deep! 

Because a man keeps things in 
pigeon-holes at the office doesn't 
mean he has the homing instinct. 

Now as we close the squeaking 
door on another thrilling episode, 
of .... Say! That reminds us 
. . . Why doesn't some good soul 
donate a few drops of oil to the 
cause of oiling the hinges of the 
study hall door so that "Inner 
Sanctum" grating won't disturb 
us study ers? 

Why doesn't Shirley Gilliland wear 
that certain watch to gym anymore? 
What attraction draws Lenna Payton 
to the study hall on special hours? 

For the answers to these ques- 
tions and many more tune in to 
this same station at the same 
time two weeks from today. Until 
then we remain your B.U. cor- 
respondents Smith and Peck. 



As long as I'm getting things off my 
chest, I might as well unload another 
burden. I don't like the way you 
guys took over the best seats in the 
auditorium when those Rotary speak- 
ers were here. Absolutely unfair. 

Well, I guess that's about all I 
wanted to tell you, Miss Editor. But 
tell those noisy kids to keep quiet so I 
can study. Just because they don't 
have anything to do is no sign that 1 
haven't! 

Hopefully yours,

Working in College Office Proves 
Anything But Dull And Monotonous 



"Pardon me", said the stranger. 
"Are you the dean of women?" 

Startled, Betty Blackburn dropped 
her text book and looked up at her 
inquirer. 

She quickly explained to the stran- 
ger that she was not the dean of 
women even though she was sitting 
at Dean K. R. Galle's desk. 

"There was too much racket in the 
study hall", said Betty ,"so I studied 
in Mr. Galle's office while he was on 
a vacation". At this point in the inter- 
view Mr. Galle interupted with "What 
do you mean by VACATION?" He 
intimated that vacation was a poor 
word. 

"Well", replied Betty, "it was a 

vacation for us anyway P. M. 

Johnson had a good time being dean 
and I had a good time being dean of 
women whie Mr. Galle was gone". 

Betty likes to tell this one on her 
helpmate Doris Deets: 

It seems that Doris was discussing 
.... "things" .... with Harold Brady 
the other day in the office. They 
became so deeply engrossed in their 
discussion that they forgot two im- 
portant facts: 1) that the partition 
between the office and room three is 
paper thin and 2) that P. M. Johnson 
was giving a test which meant excep- 
tional quietness. Ther conversation 
must have been quite audible in room 
three for soon Mr. Johnson opened 
the door into the office, saying that 



he wanted to SEE Brady at work as 
well as hear him. 

Doris and Betty enjoy working in 
the office because there is never a 
dull moment. Betty was given her 
position last May and Doris was given 
last September. Doris likes to type 
letters and Betty likes to handle 
financial matters although she 
"sweats a little getting the books to 
balance each month". 

They probably know more about the 
people attending ACJC than Mr. Galle 
himself. But mums the work where 
this kind of information is concerned. 
(They even know who gets what 
grades). 

They have found that the mornings 
are few and far apart on which B. A. 
Tubbs is not tardy to his 8 o'clock 
class. Sam Burns is a close second for 
B.A.'s record. They have also grown to 
expect Glenn Burns to use the office 
telephone almost daily. As to whom 
he calls they "can't remember" (I 
wonder) but he always exchanges 
friendly greetings with the operator 
before she rings his number. 

As for the mobs that frequently 
gather in the office to plan a party, 
hold a committee meeting or just 
gossip, "they don't bother" Doris and 
Betty a bit. When too many people 
accumulate on the desk, they flash 
their "Parking — 50<f an hour" sign 
on them. 



Students Reveal Ideas on 
"Admiring Traits of Opposite 
Sex" to Roving Reporter 

"What trait do you admire most 
in a member of opposite sex?" was 
the question asked this week in the 
student poll. So take heed, all you 
juco guys and gals, and let's see how 
you rate.

Balhetball Bawfiuet 

Congratulations to Marjorie Clark, 
the fairest queen to ever rule a 
basketball squad. 

No crowing ceremony is complete 
without kisses; Coach D. C. Stark and 
basketball captain Norman Ostrander 
saw to it that this tribute was not 
neglected. What a pleasant way to 
spend an evening! 

An appropriate dias for Queen 
Marjorie's throne was the inside of a 
large wood and paper basketball. The 
frame was so constructed that the 
upper half could be removed. Betty 
Ann Pearson deserves a lot of credit 
for struggling with this singular stage 
prop. Not only for this, but for all the 
other work which a well-planned 
banquet require does Betty Ann 
deserve a big thank-you. 

Only one casualty has been reported 
thus far as resulting from the basket- 
ball banquet. C. E. Ruff had to send 
his suit to the cleaners to have coffee 
stains removed. 

Malcolm Smith and Robben Ledeker 
were "long-time-no-seeers" there. 
Bob Brady dropped in at the peak of 
the party. 

Connie Brown, youth director of the 
Presbyterian Church, contributed no 
mean part of the program. Beside 
training the Morhain-Ausmus-Goff 
trio, she improvised a piano accompa- 
niment for the group when it sang at 
the banquet. She also accompanied the 
group singing. 

Putting what they learned at school 
into practice, Marjory Crabtree, Gloria 
Ausmus and Emmet Smith conversed 
in French during the meal. 

Last but not least is raconteur 
Harold Brady who kept the program 
going, kept the gentlemen laughing 
and kept the ladies blushing.

Three Act Comedy 
"Honor Bright" To 
Be Given April 12. 

Deets And Brady Will Have 
Leads in Annual College Play 

"Honor Bright", a three-act comedy 
by Meredith and Kenyon Nicholson, 
has been selected as the annual junior 
college speech production. The play 
will be presented in the junior high 
auditorium Friday night, April 12. 

Leads will be played by Doris Deets 
as Honor Bright and Harold Brady as 
Mr. Richard. Other parts have not 
been definitely assigned, but the cast 
will include B. A. Tubbs, Melville 
Marnix, Willis Shelhamer, Frances 
Pierce, James Shelhamer, Betty Jo 
Floyd, Glenn Wheat, Doris Stover and 
Barbara Putnam. 

The play concerns Mr. Richard, 
played by Brady, who has fallen in 
love with a chorus girl. He has invited 
the chorus girl to his home to meet 
his wealthy aunt who has promised to 
leave him her money if his choice 
meets with her approval. 

Mr. Richard's fiancee fails to arrive 
as scheduled and Honor Bright turns 
up to take the fiancee's place. From 
there on out the play is hilarious with 
the characters getting in and out of 
various scrapes. The play ends happily 
with Mr. Richard planning to marry 
Honor Bright instead of the chorus 
girl.

With a "Big" Ring With U. S. Artillery 



Miss Co-ed for this week is a cute 
little 5' 1", blond, brown-eyed Fresh- 
man gal who is always seen beaming 
at a certain handsome fellow ( h e 
played center on the basketball 
team). She loves to dance, go on hay- 
rack rides and her greatest ambition 

is "Just to do nothing as long as 

it's easy." 

Among her favorites are thick 
steaks, fried chicken, college alge- 
bra, Vaughn Monroe's orchestra, "Oh 
What It Seemed To Be" and playing 
basketball. She also loves to tease 
people. 

Miss Co-ed hates to really "dress 
up" and her pet peeve is seeing some- 
one wear high heels with slacks on. 

If you haven't guessed before, it's 
Beulah Marshall. P. S. She's going 
steady and has a big ring to prove it.

Robbin Ledeker, Pharmacist Mate 
1/c, is home on a 30-day leave, after 
which he will report to Great Lakes 
to await discharge. 

Michael Justice. Pharmacist Mate 
3/c, is now stationed at the Charles- 
ton Navy Yards, S. C. He recently 
wrote his parents that he had been in 
charge of the Yard dispensary for a 
few days in the commanding officer's 
absence. 

Pvt. Robert Duncan, a. c. h. s. '45, 
is visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. 
F. E. Duncan 1228 South B Street, 
while on a 15-day furlough from Scott 
Field, 111. 



If he is 22 years old, is five feet e- 
leven inches tall, has dark brown hair 
and blue eyes and is generally a nice 
guy, he will probably answer to the 
name of Leslie Douglas. Leslie joined 
the freshmanranks tnis semesterafter 
spending five years in Uncle Sam's 
artillery. He was discharged as a first 
lieutenant after spending two and one- 
half years in the Aleutians and Eu- 
rope. 

Mr. Ed is pretty soft-spoken until 
it comes to the word "compulsory," 
and that is his petpeeve. He especially 
likes Danny Kaye, the color brown and 
dancing. 

With an ambition to be a civil engi- 
neer in Europe, Leslie hopes to enroll 
at Kansas State next year. 

Mr. Ed made an observation that 
deserves muchconsideration. He thinks 
the veterans in A.C.J.C. are reluctant 
to participate in social events at the 
college and that they generally feel 
left out. Something should be done 
about that. This is just a hint that we 
should all work on. So unbend, you 
jucos, and make these swell fellows 
like Mr. Ed feel at home.

Interest and determination have 
blended together to put a local junior 
college boy in line for big time enter- 
tainment. 

The youthful aspirer to the mystical 
ranks of professional shght-of-hand 
entertainers is freshman Clinton 
Keller. 

His interest in magic was bom 
several years ago when he met and 
made friends with several professional 
magicians. Since that time he has 
spent hours and hours practicing 
slight-of-hand to the point where his 
hand has become quicker than the eye. 
After just a few days' practice he 
could swallow a ball and produce the 
same ball from his ear. Now, after 
a few years' practice he can make a 
human body float in mid-air. 

Not only does a magician have to 
learn his tricks, explains Clinton, but 



he also has to learn his audiences. 
Children like the kind of tricks that 
include rabbits and doves. An audi- 
ence made up entirely of men is best 
entertained with card tiicks while an 
audience of women is best entertained 
by colorful tricks with flowers and 
scarves. 

Big time magicians started in this 
same way, and those with the most 
determination have been the mostsuc- 
cessful. Along with the hours of prac- 
tice there is the prop cost which runs 
into hundreds of dollars. A large per 
cent of gate receipts go back into the 
cost of new tricks. 

Clinton is a friend of the world- 
famous magician Blackstone and is 
acquainted with many other well- 
known magicians. He has many more 
steps to go on the ladder of success 
but with his determination he is sure 
to reach the top.

Pens And Nylons Are 
Given to Graduates 

Nylons for the girls and fountain 
pens for the boys! This announcement 
was made by the merchants of 
Arkansas City as a token of apprec- 
iation to the junior colleg graduating 
class. 

Every girl graduate will receive 
two pairs of nylon hose. This decis- 
ion was made after a careful exam- 
ination of the stock which was in the 
downtown stores. Every merchant, it 
seems, has an overcrowded stock of 
nylou hose. Besides reducing the sup- 
ply somewhat, themerchantsare hope- 
ful of creating a demand for the hose. 
If this fails, practically evry store 
will suffer a loss on nylons. 

Fountain pens guaranted for a life- 
time will be given to the boys. "Every 
boy needs a good fountain pen," said 
the merchants. This plus the fact that 
fountain pens are verycheap influenc- 
ed them to choose pens as their gift 
to the male graduates. 

These presents will be distributed 
to the graduating classes during the 
commencement program April 1.

Moody Shows Possibilities 
Of Being a School Janitor 

The sound of scuffling feet and a 
piercing scream echoed throught the 
J. C. Halls and then complete silence. 
Breathlessly George sat glued to his 
seat. That uoise .... what could it 
be? George jumped out of his seat, 
stuck his head out the door and yelled 
"Help", "Police"! The scene in the 
hall was nothing unusual but since 
George liked to see "live" people in 
the halls instead of "dead" ones he 
thought it was time to put a stop to 
someof the goings-on. 

"Woffie Moody" was dragging poor 
Smitty through the halls, under the 
lockers and up and down the steps. 
The police came and took our poor 
boy "Woffie" away. When they asked 
him the reason for such abuse, he 
ducked his head and shly remarked, 
"Lately the floor were getting kinda 
dusty and tracked-up and I. was just 
mopping them up to make .em shiny."

Duncan Spies on Smith And 
Moody; Reports Smith 
Two-timing with O. Thomas 

Don Duncan, ace maker and breaker 
of ACJC romances, has finally solved 
the problem and trouble between 
Sonny Moody and Betty Smith. 

It was a hard thing to keep on the 
trail of that lonesome couple, but as 
Duncan said" All it really took was 
something with a lil' knowledge and 
20-20 vision." The story seems to go 
something like this: "On the night of 
the darkest night we have had for a 
long time which you will remember 
I'm sure— Iwas out buzzing the town 
a lil' to see what I could gather up 
for my memory book when my eyes 
came to a standstill for there before 
me, retreating from the favorite cen- 
ima was our deah' boy Moody and 
Marjorie Nugen. 

What a scoop; But does Betty Smith 
know abont this— little do we know. 
Since tho' Betty and I are such good 
buddies why shouldn't I be the one 
to relate this sad news sooooo I went 
pronto to the Smith residence and 
find myself quietly going batty for 
there sitting in front of the Smith 
residence is Miss Smith and The Oscar 

Of cource the next day Moody and 
Smitty were on the old love basis 
again and with no one the wiser that 
any kind of two-timing was going 
on except me and naturally I wouldn't 
tell a soul. Who am I kidding?

New Sheet 
Hits Street 

A new development in the pub- 
lishing field has been added when 
the new newspaper, The T & J Spla- 
tter began its publication on March 
43, 1946 on the third hill north of our 
suburb called Winfield. The editors, 
Rosalee "Manila" Jones and Jo — an 
"Shorty" Templar have been using a 
startling new innovation with the use 
of — Dead Lines — which means that 
copy must be handed in at a definite 
time and failure to hand the copy in 
on time simply means no paper, no 
salary, no grade and no nothing. So 
far this use of so-called dead-lines 
has been such a huge success that 
several nationally known papers are 
expected to add this new feature to 
their style books. 



Exploitations of Lt. Col. 
Ledgerwood Are Revealed 

Mrs. Jim (Big Time Operator) 
Ledgerwood has filed snit for divorce 
in the Reno Court from her famous 
husband, owner of the renowed Tokyo 
geisha house, which features the show 
now overseas for the occupation forces 
in Japan 

Lt. Col. Ledgerwood has been "run- 
ning around" after Tica-Tou, the 
Japanese version of Gypsy Rose Lee, 
according to the charges filed by Mrs. 
Ledgerwood. "Jim quit flying his 
rocket ship home every night", she 
states, "and then I got a focus of him 
on our brand new television set and 
there he was with Tica". 

Nearly in tears, Mrs. Ledgerwood 
continued, "And our two sweet daugh- 
ters, Beulah and Erma, feel the dis- 
grace of their father's philandering, 
but I refuse to greive especially since 
I now have the comfort of Melville 
'Wolf Marnix". 

For a property settlement, the 
army officer, former star of the local 
junior college basketball team, must 
pay 100,000 dollai-s per year plus sup- 
port for his daughters and the upkeep 
on their luxurious home, 2222 Pigeon 
Place on Lovers Lane at Honeymoon 
Cove, Kansas. 

Loss of his wife leaves Ledgerwood 
inconsolable. When informed of the 
divorce suit, he cried out with a shriek 
of horror, "Now Tica will want to 
marry me!". 

Mrs. Ledgerwood is the former 
Betty "Twelve Carat Diamond or 
Nothing" Sanderson.

Editor's Note: This reply is given to a 
letter recently received from a high 
school junior. 

Dear high school junior, 

Yes, the noise that you hear up- 
stairs probably has its origin in the 
juco clubroom. But don't get the 
wrong idea about our place — you'd 
be surprised how many lessons are 
studied down there and how many 
quiet games of bridge and poker go 
on. 

Everyone agrees that when they 
were in high school they liked hear- 
ing the music that drifted upstairs. 
And we still like hearing it while 
we're in class down here. (Especially 
when we have some new records.) 

Oh yes, those assembly seats. We 
were told that we could sit anywhere 
in the auditorium that we wished. We 
thought, too, that you'd jump at the 
chance to not sit in your regular 
conference seats. 

While you're griping just remember 
there are things you do that we don't 
appreciate either. For instance — the 
way you bang around getting to as- 
sembly when we're in class, and the 
way the girls smear lipstick and nail 
polish and string paper towels over 
the juco restroom. 

Well, all slamming aside — you'll 
understand when you are in junior 
college and you'll enjoy every minute 
of it just like we do. 

Be seein' ya,

Rapid Improvements 
Made on Club Room 

"What are these cushions doing on

club room these days, with couches and 
chairs being taken to the school shops 
for repairs. Shirley Gilliland, chair- 
man of the redocorating committee, 
comments that ' the ping-pong table 
now "stands alone," furniture is being 
refinished and her committee hopes to 
have the work done by the date of the 
Tigerama. Other plans include having 
the drapes cleaned and hung on new 
fixtures, the addition of a record hold- 
er and cleaning the walls. 

Work on the club rooms will be 
financed by receipts from the college 
play and from Gaffney's Magician 
Act on April 30. The decorating com- 
mittee emphasizes the importance of 
students participation in ticket sales 
for these events, noting that the more 
tickets sold, the more improvements 
students will enjoy in the club rooms.

The Feminine Touch 



BY TEMP 






This week juco cage women are 
keeping their eyes on the semi-finals 
of the intra-mural basketball tourna- 
ment which is being held among the 
high school conferences. Games are 
played during the noon hour in the 
auditoriumm-gymnasium, with Mar- 
shall, Peason and Templar refereeing. 

The juco team, captained by Betty 
Jo (Stink) Floyd, will cope with the 
winner of the tourney probably the 
latter part of this week. The college 
sextette— Floyd (f), Beulah Marshall 
(f), Gloria Ausmus (f), Betty Jo 
Pickins (g), Mildred Freese (g), and 
Joan Templar (g) — has had several 
unofficial games with the senior gym 
class and is shaping up its plays in 
fine style. 

High school players have exhibited 
exceptional speed and fearlessness 
with the ball. Most of their fouls are 
due to the over-guarding and steps. In 
two respects the college group has 
the upper hand: Height and a more 
confident and less flustered manner. 

Besides playing the winner of the 
tourney, the Jucos will play a repre- 
sentative team from each class 
— sophomore, junior, senior — and an 
all-star high school team composed of 
the six best high school players.

Cast And Plot of 
Honor Bright" Is 
Revealed by Sleeth 

"Honor Bright?" 
"Sure! It's April 12." 
"What's April 12?" 
"Honor Bright" 
"Whats the riddle?" 

Honor Bright is no riddle. It's the 
annual college play. to be presented 
Friday night, April 12, in the junior 
high auditorium. 

There's a grand cast. Honor Bright 
the mystery woman, is being played 
by Doris Deets. Richard Barrington, 
(not surprised, are you that Harold 
Brady would be the leading man) has 
all sorts of difficulties making his 
Aunt Peggy and Uncle Bishop Carton, 
played by Betty Jo Floyd and Glenn 
Wheat, to approve of his chorus girl 
sweetheart. 

James Shelhamer is the Reverend 
James Schooley of Platte, Nebraska, 
and the serious butler who manages 
the entire household is played by B. A 
Tubbs, jr. Jess Griffin is a deputy 
sheriff and Kenneth Dodson, as Bill 
Drury, rescues the actress from the 
aristocracy. 

Other characters are Mildred Freeze 
as the Irish cook, Doris Stover as the 
Irish maid, Willis Shelhamer as the 
Scotch gardener and Melville Marnix 
as the family chauffeur. 

Barbara Putnam is the actress who 
has stolen the hero's heart— but come 
and see the play. 

College activity tickets will admit 
students, and other tickets will go on 
sale within a short time.

Meet Miss Co-ed- 

Hikes to City Dump 
Give Her Pleasure 

Miss Co-ed for the week is a peppy 
Freshman gal who enjoys playing ten- 
nis, basketball and hiking to the city 
dump. (She does — really! !) She also 
expressed preferences for "I'm Al- 
ways Chasing Rainbows" in that su- 
mooth T. Dorsey manner, French and 
the color blue. (Quoth "Ozy"— "I hate 
the color red, but I'm a victim of cir- 
cumstances, my mother likes it!) 
When asked what she liked to eat, 
Miss Co-ed quickly replied, "I like 
to eat— that's all! !" 

She says that her pet peeve is see- 
ing slacks worn with a fur coat, and 
that her ambition is to see a real fire 
drill, with emphasis on the "real"! 

As to her future plans, Miss Co-ed 
was rather vague, hastily saying, "Oh, 
I'm goinq- to take some Psychology 
or something." 

Yes, Miss Co-ed is none other than 
that lower-third of the super Juco 
trio — Gloria Ausmus.

New Building Is Completed; 
Students Lonesome for B. U. 



Students filed wearily to class Mon- 
day morning. Itwas a sad day for 
ACJC. Work had been completed on 
the new college buildings which will 
replace dear old BU (Basement Uni- 
versity); and faculty members, head- 
edby Dean K. (for kruel) R. Galle, 
forced unwilling jucos to leave their 
haunts of higher education and move 
into the new buildings of Silverdale 
stone, with myriads of windows and 
a complete fluorescent lighting sys- 
tem. Those who had been students of 
BU for two years were struck blind 
by the sudden appearance of so much 
light whereas the freshmen are wear- 
ing dark glasses until their eyes grow 
accustomed to the new situation. 

Local physicians and undertakers 
are complaining because the air-con- 
ditioning system in the new buildings 
(preventing drafts, influenza and 
pneumonia) threatens their business- 
es. 

Professor Stark is particularly 
perturbed (where did that word come 
from?) about the new chemistry 
building which houses the most com- 
plete and modern laboratory in the 
state, Far removed as the laboi - atory 
is from the high school, Mr. Stark is 
afraid that there will be no one to 
upset .break, dilute and otherwise 
ruin experiments left on the desk 
overnight by college students. 

Henrietta Courtright and Gaye Iden 
are chief objectors to the new "roll- 
away" blackboards and Miss Court- 



right said "What will I do with all 
that blackboard space? My students 
never go to the board and I seldom 
use it." 

Professor Ruff is searching every- 
where for the rusty, blunt instrument 
that were the pride of his zoology 
classes. Amputations are being report- 
ed dp.ily by students unaccustomed 
to the sharp, new instruments now in 
use. 

Students are especially unhappy 
about the broad expance of the new 
campus with its beautiful shade trees 
and floral gardens. 

Chief among the complaints are .hose 
voiced by students upon having to 
give up the club rooms at dear old 
BU. The new recreation building with 
its ping-pong room, snooker room, 
automatic record player, snack bar, 
and heating system holds little inter- 
est for the students. Jucos were un- 
happy to find that the new pop stand 
had cold beverages rather than the 
customary luke-warm ones at the old 
building. Magazine racks filled with 
"True Detective". "Esquire", and 
"Superman" are completely ignored 
by the student body. 

It is hard for the students and 
teachers to be thrust into such an 
environment after stalking the dark 
recesses of ACBU, but as always they 
are bravely trying to make the most 
of the situation and will try to bear 
the blow. 



I pOliCe nOaTeS 

Raymond Baldridge and Charles 
Wittenborn were picked up by the 
truancy officer, Melville Marnix, Fri- 
day for skipping school to go fishing. 
They were taken to their homes. 

Miss Eileen Bea Howland reported 
her tricycle was stolen from her front 
porch last Saturday night. 

Mrs. Don Burkarth has posted bond 
pending her trial in local court on a 
charge of petty larceny. 

Lenna Payton has been returned to 
"third hill" at Winfield. She escaped 
two months ago and had been running 
around in this vicinity since her 
escape. 

B. A. Tubbs, jr., and Edward Sanab- 
ria, jr., were picked up by police Sat- 
urday night, as usual. 

Miss Gaye Iden was released from 
the county jail at Winfield last week 
after spending two months there at 
hard labor. Miss Iden was charge and 
convicted of attempting to murder 
her physics class with an electrical 
contraption.

Francis Modlin and Max Brown 
announced today in assemdly that 
they had, after several years of 
study and experimentation, dis- 
covered a method of attaching 
windshield wippers to spectacles. 

Humanity is indeed indebted to 
Modlin and Brown for this intri- 
cate little gadget, for it will no 
doubt save countless lives and 
prevent many accidents. On rainy 
days those who wear glasses will 
simply attach the spectacle wip- 
pers and walk confidently, know- 
ing that what they see is actually 
there and not just a blur on their 
lenses. 

Of course the inventors could 
not explain too exactly their new 
brain child due to the lack of a 
patent, but they did reveal that it 
was constructed of a light, plastic 
material and that it would be 
manufactured in all colors from 
shartruse to sky-blue pink so as 
to match the present shade of 
plastic spectacles.

"Fatty" And "Curly" 
Held in City Jail 
While AwaitingTrial 

• The long arm of the law finally 
caught up with two arch criminals, 
Samuel "Fatty" Burns and Homer 
"Curly" Livingston. The pair were 
apprehended early yesterday evening 
while fighting between themselves. 
Booked for disturbing the peace, the 
police have since found other charges 
aganist these two. 

After locking them securely in jail, 
the police questioned them as to the 
cause of engaging in fisticuffs on 
Summit Street. Both maintained a 
stoney silence until Livingston finally 
said, "Just because I have naturally 
curly hair, he gets jealous of me." To 
which Burns hotly replied, "I am not 
jealous. I know my hair is curlier than 
yours because I get a permanent 
every two months." 

Confronted with other charges, the 
pair broke down and pleaded guilty 
to each one. Because of their short 
stature, both Burns and Livingston 
had been getting into local theatres 
on half-fares. This had been going on 
for several years, they admitted. 

Still another compaint is that 
"Curly" Livingston has been the cause 
of several major traffic jams. By al- 
ways driving at a snail's pace, he 
prohibited other drivers from making 
the crossings on the green lights and 
this caused traffic confusion at every 
intersection. 

At the present time these two 
criminals are in the city jail awaiting 
trial which will be held in about two 
weeks.

Linotype Lament 

I wisht I was a wash machine; 
I'd swish the skirts and dresses; 
But all I do is what folks deem 
Is news to feed the presses. 
I wisht I was a percolator, 
Brewing coffee good and brown, 
But here I sit all day and wonder 
When the copy's coming down. 
A movie star I'd love to be, 
Enjoying fortune and fame. 
There is no praise that comes to mo; 
Just puns, abuse and blame. 
I am a servant, I am a slave 
Of that specie commonly known oc- 

... ah me . . . 
I can't bring myself to mention th" 

knave. . . 
Such pitiful, soul stirring memories, 

you see. 
Of course these poor knaves are not 

wholly to blame; * 

There's another low specie that gets 

on my nerves. 
Their writing! Their spelling! Con- 
fusion's their aim — 
Condemnation and pity the journalist 

deserves. 

P. S. The Linotype operators say 
"Amen" to the above.

Dan Stark, chemistry tearher and 
ex-convict, was given his freedom re- 
cently after having served his allotted 
sentance in Leavenworth. He says 
that the discipline was rough and the 
path stony. He also says that he cer- 
tainly misses the old ball and chain. 
Stark was sentenced becauce he took • 
from his students and was caught 
chewing it himself. 

We sincerely hope that he goes 
straight from now on. 

Miss "Pin Ball" Sleeth met a most 
painful accident during the rehearsel 
of the "Red Mill". It occurred while 
she and Miss Davis were rehearsing 
some of the dances for the show. As 
Miss Sleeth tried to lift her foot a- 
bove her head, it slipped behind her 
neck and injured her ankle. 

Miss Sleeth's former position was 
that of chorus girl in the Ark City 
Scandals. 

"Curtains" Galle says that the school 
racket is thebest yet. Since he never 
walked very much, shoe rationing 
didn.t worry him, but it was pretty 
hard on the blue serge which made a 
shining example of him. He plans to 
get a retreat soon because of scarcity 
of materials. 

P. M. Johnson classes has resigned 
his teaching position because, he says, 
"The classes know more than I do and 
I have to study to hard to keep up 
with them. It is overtaxing me ment- 
ally. He plans to purchase a small 
tract situated near the city dump, 
where there are lots of tin cans, and 
start raising goats. 

We don't want to "butt" in but we 
wish him success with Bill and Nanny. 
C. E. Ruff, who in times past 
has aided in solving the young 
people's problems, is making plans to 
comercialize on his helping ability 
and is going to establish a "Lonely 
Club" and receive remuner- 
ation for his confidential advise. 

He^is offering as a premium to the 
five couples retaining him as

Humphrey Hides in Sleeth's Desk 
While Students Search Building 



Five Day Search Is Futile; 
Memorial Service Given in 
Assembly Monday Morning 

After an intense search which last- 
ed for five days, Jean Humphrey was 
found in a drawer of Miss Sleeth's 
desk. Her absence was first noticed 
Wednesday in rhetoric when Miss 
Sleeth called on her to recite. All stu- 
dents in the class stated that they had 
seen her enter the classroom through 
the window but as their attention was 
drawn away by "Lord Jim" they did 
not notice whci'e she went after mak- 
ing a three point landing on the floor. 

Class was then dismissed and the 
search began. Students were sent 
throughout the school to find and 
track down any clues. Norma Moore 
and Homer Livingston claimed that 
they heard screams coming from the 
junior high gym but upon investigat- 
ion Norma did not find .anything 



Homer did not return. 

At the end of the five day search 
all students returned wearily to rheto- 
ric class to report that they had had 
no luck. 

A short memorial service was held 
for Jeanin assembly Monday morning. 
Upon returning to her room after 
assembly Miss Sleeth oponed a draw- 
er in her desk toget a pencil and spied 
Jean curled up inside the drawer. 
Jean smiled and asked Miss Sleeth 
if she was suprised. 

Miss Sleeth replied, "No, I thought 
you might be here. I did not look here 
because I thought it would be excit- 
ing to have a funeral in assembly." 

The only explanation that Jean 
offered was that she intended to be- 
come Batwoman but when she made 
such a bad landing after entering the 
window she could not face the class 
and since the desk was close she 
thought it would be a good hiding 
place. 



Dance Parlor notice 



Is Opened 

Burnam A. Tubbs, jr. and Eddie 
Sanabria announce the opening of the 
"Hot Time Spot," Ark City's finest 
dime and dance parlor. Tubbs said 
that the hall would be under his per- 
sonal supervision, however, Sanabria 
wasn't around when Tubbs made that 
remark. 

High light of the hall will be the 
thick, rare steaks, which will be sever- 
ed. As a side feature, several junior 
college cuties will be on hand to enter- 
tain all would be good timers. The 
following girls have already signed up 
to aid this good cause: Mar jorie Clark, 
Beulah Marshall, Lena Payton, Gerry 
Patrick, Erleen Morhain, Beverly 
Godfrey, Shirley Gilliland, and Gerry 
Sipe. Hostesses will be under the 
supesvision of Miss Gaye Iden, who 
has promised to devote all her time to 
the enterprise. Dean Galle has given 
Miss Iden permission to hold her 
physics classes in the northwest room 
of the hall. He said the music would 
help physics students in the experi- 
ments. 

Tubbs and Sanabria have secured a 
building near the junior college, so 
that students may have time to run 
over for a quick coke between classes. 
At first the proprietors did not agree 
on the close location, but they were 
finally persuaded by K. R. Galle, that 
the "Hot Time Spot" should be near 
the school, so that the faculty could 
also "run over" between classes. Galle 
also pointed out that by placing the 
hall near the school, high school stud- 
ents could also enjoy listening to the 
music and merry-making.

Speech Class Presents 
Entertaining Three-Act 
Comedy, April 12 

"Honor Bright", an entertaining 
three-act comedy was presented Fri- 
day night, April 12, in the junior high 
auditorium before a near capacity 
audience under the direction of Miss 
Pauline B. Sleeth. 

Action in the play centered around 
Richard Barrington, a young New 
England aristocrat portrayed by Har- 
old Erady, and Miss Honor Bright, 
played by Doris Deets, who is work- 
ing her way through college by selling- 
books. Tot Marvel, played by Barbara 
Putnam, is the New York show girl 
fiancee of Richard Barrington and 
complications arise when she fails to 
show up to spend the week-end at the 
Barrington home. 

Supporting roles were played by 
Glenn Wheat and Betty Jo Floyd as 
tne Rev. and Mrs. William Carton, 
Frances Pierce as Mrs. Lucy Barring- 
ton, Kenneth Dodson as a New York 
advertising manager, James Shelham- 
er as the Rev. James Schooley and 
Jess Griffin and Norman Moody as 
comical sheriffs. 

Family servants were portrayed by 
B. A. Tubbs. jr., as Watt, the butler; 
Melville Marnix as Michael, the chauf- 
feur; Willis Shelhamer as Foster, the 
gardner; Mildred Freese as Annie, the

First Instituted In 
1930; "Candyland" 
Is Theme This Year 

"Lights, music, action" — and a 
deep sigh of relief — the Tigerama of 
'46 is underway. For weeks, crepe 
paper and paste have crowded the 
dreams of Jucos while plans took 
shape for the big event. At last the 
night has arrived and work clothes 
have been discarded for formals and 
mellow music has replaced the class- 
room drone. 

The Tigerama, traditional recep- 
tion for seniors, was first instituted 
in April, 1930. Entertainment took 
the form of a musical revue and was 
held in the junior high auditorium. 
That year the college entertained 
guests from the senior classes of 
Arkansas City, Chilocco, Wellington, 
Geuda Springs, Oxford and Newkirk. 
Other Themes 

Following years saw such themes 
as "On Deck," "Tennis Meet" and 
"Stardust" furnish the framework 
of steadily enlarged and improved 
parties. 

The class of '46 presents the Tiger- 
ama in form of "Candyland." Ar- 
rangements were made by the social 
committee with Helen Jane Beatson 
as general chairman. The purpose 
of the Tigerama is to introduce high 
school seniors of Arkansas City and 
surrounding territory to the faculty 
students and procedure of the junior 
college. 

Head Committees 

Those heading committees were 
Joyce Turner, check room; Ferrol Fox, 
refreshments; Glenn Wheat, music; 
Judy Peck, entertainment; Lois 
Caster, program and Jack Carter, 
decorations. R°freshments were pre- 
pared by the home economics depart- 
ment, and the entire student body 
assisted in decorating. Dance cards, 
tallies and scorepads were made by 
art students. The pvogram represented 
the girls' physical education classes, 
supervised by Miss Edith Joyce Davis, 
and the music department under the 
direction of C. L. Hinchee. Bonner 
Ruff and his Noted Men provided 
music for dancing. Card games fur- 
nished further entertainment. 
T n R«civing Line 

T^e receiving line consisted of Mr. 
and Mrs. C. E. St John, Dean and Mrs. 
K. R. Galle, Miss Henrietta Court- 
right, Miss Pauline B. Sleeth, B. A. 
Tubbs, pres. of the student council 



Shirley Gilliland, president of the 
freshman class and Helen Jane Beat- 
son. 

Guests for the evening were high 
school seniors from Arkansas City, 
Gueda Springs, Oxford, Dexter, South 
Haven, Wellington, Atlanta, Buraen, 
Newkirk, Chilocco, Cambridge, Udall 
and Cedar Vale ; members of the board 
of education; the high school faculty; 
former students and servicemen. 

The Tigerama for 1946 was sponsor- 
ed by the student council with Miss 
Henrietta Courtright, Miss Dorothy 
Nichols and Miss Hawley as faculty 
advisors. 

Junior Girls Serve 

High school junior girls nominated 
by their sponsors to serve on the re- 
freshment committee were Shirley 
Beuchner, Bernice Bossi, Marie Chap- 
lin, Wanda Childs, Marybelle Dailey, 
Loveta McFarland, Donna Mae Mullet, 
Betty Pierce, Edna Robson, Patricia 
Sheldon, Berneice Thomas and Bar- 
bara Williams. Dorothy Haslett, Bebe 
Jo Louderback, Dorothy Marshall, 
Georgia Ann Rahn, Ann Roehl and

burn, Beverly Godfrey, Betty Pearson 
and Betty Smith for selling the 
largest number of tickets to the recent 
speech play, "Honer Bright." Godfery 
won first prize by selling 28 tickets. 

C. L. Hinchee lead the group in 
singing- several hymns. Hinchee and 
Marjorie Crabtree sang a duet "Love

"We point with pride " 

Yes, and here's why — We think 
that we really have a junior college 
to be proud of. The good mathematics 
courses, science departments, English 
courses, language courses, and home 
economics department: our club 
rooms, our basketball and track 
teams, the tennis squad; all of these 
go together to make the junior col- 
lege we're proud of. 

The increase in enrollment this 
year over last year has added many 
things to our college life. Next year 
we are planning for a bigger enroll- 
ment than ever. We are planning to 
have a broader curriculum and more 
social affairs. 

So we say — a great big "welcome" 
to all you seniors attending the Ti- 
gerama. We want you to know that 
we hope to see every one of you in 
our junior college next year. We want 
you to meet ouf swell teachers and 
go to the socials with us. We know 
you'll understand why and say with 
us — "We point with pride — at our 
Arkansas City Junior College."

What Ale Men Jlike ? 
What 2>a Men £ike ? 

Attention, girls! For a new slant on 
how to get your man and for advice 
on make-up, exercise, clothes and per- 
sonality read Joan Bennett's How to 
be Attractive. Miss Edith Joyce Da- 
vis has a copy of the book in her 
office. 

On the whole Miss Bennett's advice 
is sound and plausible, but her sug- 
gestion for cosmetics seems more 
than a little far-fetched and extrav- 
agant for most co-eds. 

For a period of 30 to 60 days the 
following equipment is suggested: 
Rouge (.50), lipstick (.50), powder 
(1.00), "tools" (2.00), powder base 
(.50), cleansing cream (.50), nail pol- 
ish (.10), remover (.10), astringent 
(.25), cuticle cream (10), mascara 
(.10), eye-shadow (.10). 

Listed for those who want to spend 
even more "mula" there are eye 
cream, extra lipsticks, extra nail pol- 



In Spring a young man's fancy 
turns to - — well ! ! ! Has 

anyone noticed that gleam in Max 
(Casanova) Brown's eyes? We have 
inside dope that he and Norma Moore 
are picking out their crystal and their 
furniture. When questioned about this 
Max replied, "We are buying antique 
furniture, so that when the children 
scratch it up it will only make it 
look older and more valuable." Logi- 
cal reasoning. Eh what 

It's even gotten to the place where 
the students have to bring an alarm 
clock to school to wake them at the 
end of each class. Betty Blackburn 
was quite startled when her alarm 
went off a few minutes before the end 
r.f the hour. Mr. Ruff being a kind- 
hearted soul told her that the hour 
was not yet up, so she could sleep 
for a few more minutes. Please Betty 
after this set your clock with the 
school clock. We don't want to have 
to miss any more precious sleep. 

At last we've found the reason 
whv the JournaTsm girls are a- 
fraid (?) to go to the print shop. 
Says Paul Meyers, quote, "Thej - 
re just afraid to come down here 
be-ause we're always trying to 
take them into the metal room 
to show them our etchings!" 

Mr. Stark, the chemistry instruc- 
tor, was giving chemical formulas 
and the ingredients of various in- 
ce^rhary and gas bombs. 

"Can someone tell me," he asked, 
"what advantages there are in using 
nitrates ? " 

Jim Hollenback, a brilliant soul, 
answered, "They're a darned lot 
cheaper than day rates." 

Can you imagine — 

Gene Bell six feet tall? 



Sam Burns five feet tall? 

Jean Humphrey with Harris 
Brown ? 

Barbara Putnam without a man? 

Oscar Thomas with black hair? 

Don Burkharth and Marjory Crab- 
tree with shirts that aren't alike? 

Kenneth Dodson not being friend- 
ly? 

Marjory Nugen not flirting? 

Pearson without her" zebra-striped" 
glasses (well she is without 'em, that 
picnic must've been pretty rough!) 
and without Shelley? 

Rosalee stepping out on James ? 

Earl Grinnell without a "burr" 
cut? 

Ferrol Fox without her braids? 

Melville Marnix flunking a Physics' 
test? 

Marie Bolden not making "eyes" at 
Jchn Cai-ter? 

Betty Jo Pickens, "What are 
the Phoenicians noted for?" 
Mildred Freese, "Blinds." 

Our congratulations to two of our 
former jucoettes, Helen Wilson and 
Gerry Sipe, who were married re- 
cently. 

Anchors Aweigh! We have discov- 
ered that we have two sailsmen in 
our midst. It seems that this lovely 
spring weather invigorated two of 
our juco-fellows, with initials D. D. 
(like in Don Duncan) and J. R. (like 
in Jack Rine) to the point where 
t y took a kayak out on the Walnut 
River. They started at Winfield with 
the hope of reaching Ark City before 
nightfall. After several upsets, and 
with spirits considerably dampened, 
D. D. made it to Dunkard's Mill while 
J. R. hitch-hiked home. 

Speaking of sleeping — that's a good 
snp-^e^tion. Good night! 



ish and luscious-smelling, beautifully 
packed creams. (I'm glad sunshine 
and water are cheap). 

What almost every girl would find 
interesting is the chapter on how to 
attract men which, if I had my way, 
would be printed in bold-face type 
and distributed on all college cam- 
puses. It might help to discourage the 
obnoxious wolverine tactics which 
men-mad maids are now employing. 
Manners, poise, charm and 
modesty seem tohavebeenthrust 
in moth balls during the war. I 
hope they are not the worse off 
for their disuse and { trust they 
will again find their place in the 
lives of us whose adolescence was 
pinched by war's repercussions. 
The reader of How to be Attractive 
is invited to explore cei'tain para- 
graphs by such meaningful sub- 
heads as "Six Social Talents", "Wom- 
en Must Like You, Too", "Be Your-", 
"Have You the Clear- Eyed Look?" 
and "Applied Intelligence". That's 
one of the good features of the book: 
it doesn't have to be read in one sit- 
ting, but can be dipped into at leisure.

'Sandwiched in' by Joes 'n Janes 

Social Activities Keep Students Busy--Banquets,Teas, Receptions, 
Carnivals, Get-togethers— All Enjoyed in '45-'46 Term 



We Juco Janes and Joes have been 
a busy group these last two semes- 
ters with social activities irregularly 
"sandwiched in" between class work, 
daily assignments and exams. 

First — a word about our college 
clubrooms. Located in the college bas- 
ement, the clubrooms double as a 
study hall, game room and party 
place. Currently, the student's heav- 
en-or-haven — is undergoing extensive 
redecoration with painting planned 
for the walls and re-upholstering 
planned for the furniture. 

Juco activities started last Sep- 
tember with a freshman "get-in-step" 
party. The sophs were barred from 
the freshman fun in the college club- 
rooms while the underclassmen held 
their get-acquainted affair. 
Hallowe'en Frolic 

October activities featured a Hal- 
lowe'en Frolic, given by the upper- 




I ing and flfoieen of t .e KolLge 

Kornival P. M. Johnson and Miss 

Henrietta Courtright. 

classmen for the freshmen and fac- 
ulty membrs. Costumed jucos crawl- 
ed through a "Hall of Horror" into 
the college clubrooms for an even- 
ins: of gabbing and games by candle- 
light. 

The Kollege Kornival, given for 
the sophomores by the freshman stu- 
dent body, was held in the Metho- 
dist church banquet room. The Korni- 
val, featured by typical carnival 
games and nonsense, was followed by 
a spagetti feed under a "big top" of 
crepe paper flags and streamers. The 
program included the surprise crown- 
ing of a king and queen from the 
faculty members with P. M. John- 
son, journalism and history instructor, 
and Miss Henrietta Courtright, math- 
ematics teacher, selected as the mon- 
archs. 



The Christmas tea and reception 
for college alumni was attended by 
about 100 guests. The yuletide affair 
is an annual event and this year was 
held in the decorated clubrooms, the 
day before Christmas vacation began. 
Veterans Swell Enrollment 

With the advent of second semes- 
ter came new ranks of students, many 
of whom are discharged veterans, 
swelling the enrollment to 135 active 
students. A welcome party for these 
new jucos featured January Acti- 
vities. 

The Valentine season gave occa- 
sion for another social activity with 
the party given by the losing team 
in a Victory stamp and bond sale con- 
test. Barnes' Billionaires were on the 
losing half of the contest and made 
narty arrangements for Templar's 
Tycoons. 

The basketball banquet, a formal 
dinner honoring the basketball team, 
was held at the Central Christian 
Church in March. Marjorie Clark was 
chosen basketball queen and Rosalee 
Jones, Judy Peck and Betty Smith 
were her attendants. Marjorie was 
seated on a throne made of a giant 
half-basketball covered with white 
satin cloth. Coronation honors were 
done by D. C. Stark, basketball coach, 
and Norman Ostrander, captain. 

The Tigerama is an annual spring 
dance for seniors of the local and 
neighboring high schools. This year 
the prom was arranged by the social 
committee headed bv Helen Jane 
Beatson and advised by Miss Henri- 
etta Courtright. 

Otner student activities for '45-'46 
includ e d a series of assemblies super- 
vised bv Miss Pauline B. Sleeth and 
the publishing of the juco newspaper 
"Tiger Tales". 

A Trio of Clubs 

A trio of clubs have kept a large 
p-roup of students pepped up with 
juco activities. The pen club, led by 
cheerleader^ Fesalee Jones', Barbara 
Garris and Judy Peck, was i - e-organ- 
ized this year after several years of 
dormancy. The 25 active members 
worked at the concession stand dur- 
ing iuco basketball games under the 
direction of Betty Eustice. The 
French and German Clubs are pro- 
jects of the language departments 
where Miss Anne Hawley is 
instructor. 

Sr>e<>ch Play 

"Honor Bright" was' the annual pro- 
ject of the college speech depart- 
ment. This dramatic production was 
directed by Miss Pauline B. Sle°th. 
T he play was the story of a man 
from an aristocratic family who fell 
in love with a chorus girl. Consider- 
"Mo "implications were solved when 
the hero, played by Harold Brady, 



deserted Tot Marvel, characterzied 
by Barbara Putnam, for Honor Bright, 
portrayed by Doris Deets. The play 
cast reports "a lot of fun" squeezed 
in between last-minute rehearsals. 

Public presentation of the music 
departments of the college and high 
school held a large number of college 
representatives. " The Messian " 
annual Christmas presentation of the 




Marjorie Clark, Cage Queen 

city schools under the direction of 
Charles L. Hinchee, featured Marjorie 
Crabtree as soprano soloist. The oper- 
etta, "The Red Mill", a joint project 
of the high school and college, gave 
three of the twelve solo parts to juco 
students, Barbara Garris, Marjorie 
Crabtree and Glen Burns. 

Special projects have included 
contributions to the March of Dimes 
and Cancer Control drives and the 
sale of Victory stamps and bonds.

Dean's Office Open 
For Interviews 

The dean's office is now open for 
interviews for those who want ad- 
vice on summer school courses. 

That a ten-week summer term will 
begin May 22 this year was an- 
nounced yesterday by Dean K. R.. 
Galle. The courses to be offered will 
for the most part depend upon de- 
mand. 

Listing the probable summer cur- 
riculum. Dean Galle included the fol- 
lowing subjects: 

English, algebra, trigonometry, cal- 
culus, chemistry, advanced chemistry, 
physics, history, government, and 
psychology.

Foreign Languages 
Are Valuable Assets 

"Parlez-vous francais?" or "Spree- 
ken Sic Deutsch?" are common Ques- 
tions in Arkansas City Junior Col- 
lege. The students are extremely 
language conscious and wish to show 
their fluency in French, German, and 
Spanish. 

Miss Anne Hawley, instructor, has 
lived in Yucutan and can speak Span- 
ish like a native. Her travels in Eur- 
ope have put a polish to her French 
and German. She puts emphasis on 
practical uses of the languages and 
encourages conversation in the for- 
eign phrases. 

The French and German Clubs are 
social organizations created for the 
practice of informal speech and they 
meet every two weeks. Games are 
played, music is enjoyed, and the re- 
freshments are always appreciated. 

French and German are five hour 
courses. 

For better understanding of the 
world, for more fun in school, and 
for enjoyment the foreign language 
courses fill the bill. 



Various Subjects Taught in 
Home Economics 



Department 



Does your mouth water when you 
smell fudge, cookies, or fried chicken ? 
Is your diet in a rut? Do you live to 
eat? If so then the home economics 
department is the one for you. 

Foods is offered as a whole or half 
year subject. During the first semes- 
ter the foods class is held daily and 
offers three hours of credit. Nutri- 
tional problems are studied and the 
basic fundamentals of cooking are 
learned. 

The second semester foods class 
meets twice a week for two hours. A 
complete meal is cooked. In this 
course meal planning and serving are 
studied, also how to buy food. This 
class offers two hours of credit. Dur- 
ing the year, the home econmics 
students prepare food for special 



events or school parties. If there is 
any food left, which there seldom is 
(ask Sewell, she knows), it is given 
to the faculty members who poke 
their noses into the foods room. 

A second home economics course is 
clothing. This is also offered as a 
whole or half year subject. The class 
meets three times a week for two 
hours credit. Each indivdual works on 
special projects making clothes of her 
choice. The main points of sewing and 
"how to dress" are studied. 

Elementary design is a third course 
offered in the home economics depart- 
ment. This is a two hour credit class 
which meets four times a week for 
one semester. Basic principles of inte- 
rior decoration and dress design are 
studied.

Douglas McCall arrived in Ark- 
ansas City April 21 after receiving 
his discharge from the army. He 
served in the European theater. 

Eugene Caldarera recently tele- 
phoned his parents to tell them that 
he was on his way to a separation 
center and that he will arrive home in 
about a week. His ship, the U.S.S. 
Lubbock, is being decommissioned. 

Aviation Machinist DaymondMcVay 
and Seaman First Class Jack Barker 
spent the week-end visiting with 
relatives and friends in Arkansas 
City. Both are stationed at the naval 
air base in Olathe, Kans. 

Electronic Technician's Mate Nor- 
man Byers recently returned to his 
base in Gulfport, Miss., after spend- 
ing a 15-day leave with his parents.

Knowledge of Social Science Is 
Important in World of Today 



In the ever-changing world of to- 
day, there arises a greater need for a 
general knowledge and better under- 
standing of the principles which gov- 
ern the human race. During the past 
few years the rate of change has 
steadily increased and many new so- 
cial problems are now confronting the 
American people. Educators, realiz- 
ing this fact, urge students to prepare 
themselves while in school for the 
large task which awaits them as the 
future leaders of America. 

Because of the increasing impor- 
tance of social science, students 
should take advantage of the wide 
variety in this course which is offered 
by the Arkansas City Junior College. 
Realizing the students' need for such, 
the college presents a broad field of 
study. Economics, history, govern- 
ment, and geography are the major 
divisions in this wide field of choices. 

The general aim of this course is 
to bring an understanding of basic 
principles and facts of western civ- 
ilization. It forms a basis for effec- 
tive citizenship during this economic 
age. It offers an opportunity to learn 
about international organization and 
relationship. Social sciences give 
students a sympathetic knowledge 
of the foundation of American cul- 
ture. As a result of the many social 
changes which have recently ocurred, 
it is almost a necessity for students, 
as future citizens, to have a good 
knowledge of social science. There- 
fore the Ark City college is making 
every effort to assist students by 
giving them many choices in this field. 

This college is also contemplating 
a new study for next fall which will 
be a general introductory course in 
the field of social science and is pri- 
marily a problem course. The exis- 
tence of many new social problems 
during the past generation developed 
a neeH for a general study along this 
line. This will give students a know- 
ledge of social organization, social 
principles, and social problems which 
is a" esspntifl part of the education 
of all students. 

In order to furnish the classes with 



a good basic knowledge in the field 
of social science, a total of forty- 
eight hours is offered. This is typical 
of the progressive spirit which is a 
necessity when competing with lar- 
ger colleges. Twenty-seven hours of 
history are given which includes such 
subjects as English History, Medie- 
val History, Modern History, Recent 
United States History, and others. 
Also given in this course are eight 
hours of economics, five hours each 
of government and sociology, and 
three hours of geography. Dean K. 
R. Galle, P. M. Johnson, and C. E. 
Ruff are the instructors in this de- 
partment.

School Print Shop 
Publishes Tiger Tales 

The Tiger Tales, junior college pa- 
per and main product of the journa- 
lism class, is in its second year of 
publication. It is published once every 
two weeks and is printed by the 
school print shop. 

Cub reporters meet two hours a 
week with the high school journalism 
class which is taught by P. M. John- 
son. No meetings are held by the 
Tiger Tales staff except at the call 
of the editor. 

Assignments are so made by the 
editor that each member of the staff 
is given practice in editorial-writing, 
feature-writing, news-writing and 
other phases of publication. 

Grades for journalism are given 
according to the "string", or the num- 
ber of inches of print which the stu- 
dent has written. Students may also 
count in their strings what they have 
written for the high school paper and 
for the Arkansas City daily paper. 
During the semester one historical 
fepture story must be written for the 
school paper. 

Journalism is an interesting sub- 
ject and will prove worthwhile to 
any student with, or without, writing 
ability. 



Teach Basic Courses in Physics, 
Chemistry And Biological Sciences 



Basic courses in chemistry, phvsics 
and the biological sciences are offered 
in the science d^partm^nt of the 
Arkansas City Junior College. 

Teachers in the department are 
D. C. Stark, chemistry; Miss Gave 
Iden, physics; and C. E. Ruff, biol- 
ogical sciences. 

Scientfic chemistry courses offered 
include general beginning chemistry 
which is a five hour foundation course 
for all chemistry, qualitative chem- 
istry in which unknowns are found, 
and quantitative in which the a- 
mount of unknowns are found. 



The first two semesters of college 
physics are offered. The physics and 
chemistry labs are both on the third 
floor. 

Biological science subjects include 
bfisic zoologv, a five hour course; 
physiology which is a five hour c ur'se 
on the functions of the body; hpalth 
and hygiene which is required of 
everyone obtaining a teacher's cer- 
tificate: psychology which is the 
study of the individual and why and 
how they act; and human geography 
which is the study of man and his 
relation to cliihate. 



Gustave Marters Are 
Guests at Meeting of 
Le Circle Francais 

Emmet Smith was host to le Circle 
Francais April 23 in his home at 
1322 North Fourth street. Marjorie 
Crabtree, president of the club, con- 
ducted the business meeting. Judy 
Peck acted as secretary in the ab- 
sence of the regular secretary, Bar- 
bara Garris. 

Mr. and Mrs. Gustave Marter were 
guests at the meeting. Mr. Marter 
was born in Paris, France, and came 
to the United States 12 years ago. 
He settled in Louisiana where he 
attended a university at Baton Rouge. 
Later he bought and operated a book 
store in New Orleans. 

Mrs. Marter is a native of New 
Orleans. They were married three 
months ago and came to Arkansas 
City to live. Both speak French flu- 
ently and almost all talking at the 
meeting was done in French. 

Emmet Smith was in charge of 
the program which consisted of vocal 
solos by Marjorie Crabtree and Mil- 
dred Wagner, accompanied by Betty 
Smith. French music was played on 
the phonograph. Games were con- 
ducted by Mr. Marter. 

Plans were made for a picnic May 
7. A committee composed of Beverly 
Godfrey, Gloria Ausmus, Mary Bossi, 
and Louise Benshoof was appointed 
to make arrangements for the picnic. 

Refreshments were served by the 
host and hostess, Emmet Smith and 
Mary Bossi.

English Courses Are 
Valuable to Students 

All English courses in the junior 
college are instructed by Miss Paul- 
ine B. Sleeth. These include rhetoric 
and composition, English literature, 
and public speaking. 

Rhetoric and composition is a three 
hour course in which students are 
taught how to write compositions and 
how to understand those written by 
other people. The books of two au- 
thors are thoroughly studied each 
year. Students use the knowledge 
gained in writing an autobiography 
and a term paper. Rhetoric and com- 
position is a compulsory subject in 
all colleges. 

English literature is also a three 
hour course. The work of English 
authors in all ages of literature are 
studied. This gives the student better 
understanding of the English style of 
writing. 

The junior college play, presented 
each year, is the product of the 
college speech classes. This year's 
play, "Honor Bright", was the' most 
successful production in many years. 
All principles of public speaking are 
learned and nracticed in class. 

All English courses in junior 
college are very interesting and help- 
ful and prove worthwhile to anyone 
taking them.

Juco Sports Into Full Swing Next Year 



Speer Will Be New 
Grid, Cage Mentor 

New Equipment Now on 
Order for 1946 Football 
And Basketball Squads 

With the return of football to the 
local sports scene next year, Ark 
City Junior College sports will be 
back on a full time basis for the 
first time since 1941. The Bengals 
have participated in basketball for 
two years, playing what opponents 
they could find, and have made a 
creditable showing over both seasons, 
with a record of 13 wins and 10 
losses — most of the losses being to 
older, more experienced teams such 
as Southwestern College, Wichita U. 
"B", Strother Field, and Kanotex. 
Wartime Teams Handicapped 

C. E. Ruff was in charge of the 
team during its first year of war- 
time basketball and, with a team 
having only one high school letter- 
man, managed to break even with 
four wins and four losses against 
competition of Southwestern, St. 
John's, Strother AAF, and Tonkawa. 
Regular coach Dan Stark returned 
to the scene at the start of the year 
and turned out a team which lost 
only four games to juco competition 
while winning eight. The Tigers fin- 
ished fourth in the invitational tour- 
ney held at El Dorado near the close 
of the season. Again the squad was 
constantly threatened by the draft, 
although returning servicemen 
strengthened the team immensely. 
First Steps Taken 

The Tigers tried to take up track, 
for the first time since the war and 
have partially succeeded, although a 
full-time program cannot be success- 
ful until the other members of the 
state conference have also reorgan- 
ized their sports departments. In 



general, Kansas juco sports have 
limped along through this year with 
about a third to a half of the regular 
conference members engaging in the 
usual sports. Football was not even 
tried by any of the schools because 
of the shortage of eligible players. 
SPEER IS COACH 

Next year the Tigers will be off to 
a fresh start in all sports with new 
football and basketball uniforms, a 
new schedule and a new coach. W. G. 
"Bunt" Speer, recently leturnedfrom 
the Navy, will take over the Juco 
grid and cage squads. "Bunt" has 
been junior high basketball coach and 
physical education instructor for 
several years, and many of the pres- 
ent junior college men who went 
through the local school system have 
been in his classes in junior high. 
Speer was assistant football coach 
for the high school before leaving 
for military duty. 

Strong Teams Expected 

Strong teams are expected next 
year with returning vets expected to 
bolster the regular turnout of players 
from the freshman class and those 
who will join the school next year 
from the present senior classes of 
various neighboring high schools. Iri 
former years the local school, 
although not as large as several other 
schools in the conference, made good 
showings and the Tiger was recogniz- 
ed as a factor which could wreck the 
title hopes of any pennant-bound 
sqi ad. 

War-time Sports Important 

Although war-time sports brought 
no fame or fortune to the local school, 
they have helped keep the Tigers in 
the public mind and have provided a 
sound basis on which to build even 
stronger teams in the future. The job 
of reconversion in the local sports 
department, although recognized as 
difficult, will not be as hard as in 
those schools whose sports activities 
have been dormant through the war.

In Triangular Meet 



The Bengal track team took second 
place in the first meet of their abbre- 
viated season on April 11 at El 
Dorado. The home squad with several 
entries in every event were the win- 
ners with 55% points, Ark City sec- 
ond with 49, and Fort Scott trailed 
both to the wire with 43%. A stiff 
breeze and cool weather hampered the 
efforts of everyone except the dash 
men and slow times were turned in in 
most of the events. 

Earl Grinnell walked off with in- 
dividual meet honors with 17 1/3 
points. He took first in the high hur- 
dles and pole vault, second in javelin, 
fourth in tne broad jump, and was 
part of a three-way tie for first in 
nigh jump. Other Ark City entries 
wno brought home points were Jim 
Shelhamer, 14 1/3 (F— low hurdles, 
S — broad jump, S — 100 yd., tie for 
F — high jump), Norman Ostrander, 
8 1/3 (S — 440 yd., T— 220 yd., tie for 
6 (S — high hurdles, T — javelin, Fo.— 
discus), and Jack Rine, 3 (S — shot 
put). 

El Dorado's victory was largely 
due to depth in every event, some- 
times taking first, third and fourth 
in one event. Ark City made the best 
single event showing in the high 
jump, as three Tigers finished in a 
tie for first. Jim Shelhamer, Grin- 
nell, and Ostrander each helped the 
Tigers bring back 10 points in that 
event.

Nefcmen Lose First 
Match to El Dorado 

Ark City lost its first tennis match 
of tne season to El Dorado in a dual 
match there by a score of 5 to 1. The 
bengals' only victory came in the No. 
1 singles match as Don Duncan de- 
feated Grist of El Dorado 6-4, 7-5. 

Jack Rine, Gene Bell, and Bud Hol- 
man each lost their singles matches 
to the Grizzlies, and although each 
of the doubles matches went to three 
sets, the home entries also swept 
those.

MEET MISS CO-ED— 

Phone Number 918 
What a Number! 

Miss Co-ed for this week lives at 
211 South First street and has the 
phone number 918. (And what a num- 
ber!) She likes a person who can take 
a joke. 

She likes ACJC because of the 
school spirit of the students. And 
the teachers are swell — 'their per- 
sonalities seem to cheer up the of- 
fice. Her favorite subjects are art and 
home economics. She has taken art in 
school as long as she can remember. 
Red and Yellow are her favorite col- 
ors. 

Her hobbies are oil-painting, tennis, 
dancing and cooking. Her appetite 
calls for items from soup to nuts. 
Ice cream and fried chicken are fa- 
vorites. (She adds, "Harry James, if 
he is available".) 

The ambition of Miss Co-ed is a 
career in dress design. She is major- 
ing in Art and home economics. 

This Jill's most embarrasing mo- 
ment was when she sat down on a 
stranger's lap in the movie theater. 
She insists that she couldn't see. 

She is Betty Blackburn.

A standardized two year college 
math course is offered by the Ar- 
kansas City Junior College. Any stu- 
dent wishing to take mathematics can 
secure the same number of lrath cred- 
its here as he could in any accredited 
university or four year college. 

Mathematics instructors in the jun- 
ior college are Miss Henrietta Court- 
right and D. C. Stark. 

Beginning courses in college math 
are college algebra and trigonometry. 
The algebra course offers either three 
or five hours credit, depending upon 
whether the student has already had 
advanced algebra in high school. If 
he has had advanced algebra, he re- 
ceives three hours credit for college 
algebra, while a student who has not 
had high school algebra, receives five 
houis credit. Trigonometry is three 
hours credit. 

More advanced math courses are 
analytical gecmelry and calculus. An- 
alytical geometey offers five hours 
credit. It is completed in one semes- 
ter. Calculus is divided into two se- 
m-ster's work. The first semester 
differential calculus is taught. It of- 
fers four hours credit. The second se- 
mester integral calculus is studied. 
It, too, is four hours credit. 

If there is sufficient demand, cour- 
ses in practical math, slide rule, and 
spherical trigonometry are offered. 
Practical math, which is designed to 
give students a better understanding 
of the kind of math they need in 
every day use, offers two hours credit. 
Slide rule is one hour credit, and 
spherical trigonometry also gives one 
hour credit. 



MEET MR. ED— 

Sergeant To Be A 
Star Grid Player 

This week you are going to meet a 
new-comer to our halls. This soft- 
spoken freshman is five feet ten 
inches tall and has brown hair and 
brown eyes. He joined our ranks two 
weeks ago and will return next year 
to be one of our star football players. 
He was discharged about six weeks 
ago after serving thirty-two months 
in the infantry as a sergeant. 

Among his favorites are Vaughn 
Monroe's orchestra, "Oh What It 
Seemed To Be", the color brown ham- 
burgers, and loafin'. His pet peeve 
is someone who likes to talk about 
himself. 

By now you should have guessed 
that Mr. Ed is Walt Mathiasmier. 



Assembly Presented by 
Members of Speech Play 

Introduction of members of the 
cast of the annual college speech 
play, "Honor Bright" was made by 
B. A. Tubbs in a regular college as- 
sembly April 4. Each member of the 
cast gave a small excerpt from his 
part in the play. Tubbs announced 
that ticket sales had begun with Bar- 
bara Garris in charge as business 
manager. 

K. R. Galle made a few announce- 
ments following the introduction of 
the cast. Doris Deets had charge of 
devotions. 

A meeting of all junior college vet- 
erans was held immediately after the 
assembly.

BY TEMP 

Gardening's sextet, victor in 
the recent high school conference 
basketball tourney, fell before the 
juco onslaught April 9 in the 
Aud-Gym. by a score of 29-13. 
In the first half scoring was fairly 
even with juco captain "Stink" Floyd 
and high school forward Catherine 
Carter making the most baskets. By 
the secord half the Marshall-Floyd 
machine began clicking and college 
scores piled up. 

Pearson played a good same as 
forward when she trad"d courts 
with Ausmus who tackled the job 
of suar^iTig Kathleen Stockton. 
Barbara Co"!e refe~eed the game. 
The gym class has dusted off tennis

It was noon. Students and teachers were hurrying from the school building, 
but I was the only one to see the odd little bump on the lawn grow . . .and . . . 
grow. . . 

It looked like the top half of an over-sized coconut, or a dome, sitting there 
on the ground. Suddenly the bump stopped growing. Through my body I felt 
a tremor which had evidently been transmitted to me by the earth. 

"Pardon me, ma'm, but could you give me the time?", I heard a soft, 
gurgling voice say. 

Two brilliant, dark eyes peered at me from under the slightly tilted dome 
of earth. No other features were distinguishable. The inside of the dome appeared 
to be filled with a black, shadow-like substance that moved unceasingly. 

-"I repeat, ma'm, could you tell me what year, day and hour this is?", said 
a voice that apparently had come from the dome. 

I complied with It's request. 

"O, for wildcat's sake!", It gushed, "I'm three decades and four hours 
ahead of the scheduled time." 

"Ahead of time for what?", I wanted to know. 

"You mortals are all alike! Always asking why this and why that! 
If your scientists keep on poking their noses into our business, we won't have 
even the slightest suggestion of a secret to call our own. Daddlebabbledabble-

Music Activities Which 
May Include Revue Will 
Yield Many Opportunities 

"Every JUCO student will have 
the opportunity to take part in some 
music activity next term and if 
enough are interested we might 
have a college musical show", pre- 
dicts C. L. Hinchee, junior college 
music supervisor. 

Mr. Hinchee also plans to have 
quartet and trio groups besides the 
regular chorus. The chorus, this 
year, participated in the annual 



presentation of the Messiah and 
several members of the chorus took 
leading parts in the operetta "Red 
Mill". 

A two-hour course in basic har- 
mony is also taught by Mr. Hinchee. 

For those interested in instrumen- 
tal music, credits toward graduation 
from the Arkansas City Junior Col- 
lege are given for participation in 
the high school band and orchestra. 
Instrumental music is under the dir- 
ection of August Trollman.

Salesman: Here is a very nice 
pistol, lady. It shoots nine times. 

Fair customer: Say, what do you 
think I am, a polygamist? 



(Continued from page 7) 
"But I was kind enough to tell you the time." 

"Ah. .hmm. .ah, so you were, so you were. Forgive me for being so 
CRUDE, .erum... I mean r-ude. Really, I'm not a bad fellow. It's just that, in 
these last few years, I've been mistreated, abused, taken advantage of. 1 can 
hardly be sweet-tempered when all around me I see avariciousness, plunder and 
even murder. And the worst part of it is that I am the cause of it, not through 

any fault of mine, understand, but through a fatal human vice lust for power 

and riches." 

A slight pause; and then It hiccuped. A wisp of flame shot skyward. 
"I should have known that Texas sulfur wouldn't agree with me", It fumed. 
The two eyes, as though dangling on invisible strings moved ever so slightly 
to and fro, to and fro. They held me spellbound. 

It continued in low, smooth tones. "Of course, there were times when I was 
in a much happier situation. . . .1 might even say an exalted situation. 
in the building of Nineveh and Babylon. The Babylonians introduced me to the 
"I played an important part in the construction of the Tower of Babel and 
Egyptians and they, in turn, used me to embalm their Pharaohs. I mode it possible 
for the Sicilians to burn lamps in their temple of Jupiter and I was responsible 
for the "holy fire" which has been known and worshipped by certain sects among 
the Persians for nearly 3,000 years. On the western continent explorers and Indians 
regarded me with religious awe and superstition. 

"Pioneers settling near Poala, Kans., amused themselves by setting me 
afire . I was not known to be of any practical value then becausescientists 
hadn't learned how to use my products. But it wasn't long before those tests 
tube jugglers discovered the if's and why's about me. O! sad day. 

"Then along came your industries, your American ingenuity, your American 
enterpriser! My peaceful existence changed to an infernal hubbub. My freedom 
was curtailed wherever I appeared above ground. I was harnessed to the machine 
and I didn't like it! 

"Not only in this country did your American manufacturers enslave me 
but also in Mexico, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela. Americans also are interested 
in Galician and Rumanian fields, in Sumatra, have nearly one-quarter interest in 
the Irak Petroleum Company and are developers in Argentina, Bolivia . . .and so 
on ... . 

"Now the whole world. is on my trail. Look at the commotion I caused 
in Iran. War analysts are even accrediting Germany's defeat to her scar- 
city of me. The Netherlands clings to her colonies, Britain rules India 
with an iron hand and Russia sends her troops to Turkey and Iran. Why? 
Why? I'll tell you why. It's for me, for me. Ha, ha, ha, he, he, he! Hie! 
They're mad, I tell you, mad! Everybody's mad!" 
Infuriated, the creature seethed and bubbled until the dome fairly rocked. 
I took advantage of this pause to reiterate my question. "I still would like to 
know what you meant by 'three decades and four hours ahead of time'." 

"That, my child, is one secret your blasted scientists haven't stumbled upon. 
Even your geologists flubbed up on this one." 

Then It muttered something about Summit Street and some kind of dome. But, 
cutting himself short, he let the shell of earth fall and ducked beneath it. 
I ran to the mound, shouting, "What's your name? Who are you?" 
The voice sounded far, far away and it grew fainter. . .fainter. . .Did I hear 
correctly? There, now the echo.

Girls Show Ambitions for 
Careers before Settling 
Down for Rest of Lives 

Believe it or not — many of the 
juco gals are heading for careers 
other than that of a housewife — for 
a while anyway. Yes, they have big 
plans to take care of before they 
settle down to cleaning house, wash- 
ing diapers, entertaining bridge 
clubs, etc. Here are the hopes and 
ambitions of some of them. 

Barbara Putnam — be a professor 

of mathematics in a college. 
Betty Ann Pearson — go into 
some line of speech work. 
Iris Rahn — be a home demon- 
stration agent. 

Geneive Goff — be a director of 
religious education. 
Lenna Payton — learn to play 
tennis. 

Joan Templar — go into journa- 
lism or music. 

Norma Moore — be a chemist. 
Doris Deets — be a private secre- 
tary. 

Beverly Godfrey — a laboratory 
technician in a doctor's office. 
Jerry Patrick — a model. 
Betty Blackburn — work in some 
business with home economics 
and art. 

Marjorie Clark — do something 
exciting in a big city. 
Joyce Turner — be a bow'er. 
Judy Peck — Since ambitic'.i to

Welch Stresses Advantages 
Of College Education 

"Students should complete a full 
four year college course," urged Vir- 
gil C. Welch in an assembly for juco 
sophomores Tuesday morning, April 
9. Mr. Welch is a public relations man 
at Southwestern College, Winfield. He 
spoke about the advantages of South- 
western College and added that most 
business firms all but require a four 
year college education for their em- 
ployees. 

The Winfield college, according to 
Mr. Welch, is planning to house part 
of the returned veterans on the for- 
mer Strother Field site. This will 
ease the housing somewhat. "Col- 
leges are giving preference to home 
state students because of the increase 
in enrollment," he stated. He also 
suggested opportunities for students 
working while attending school. 

Southwestern College is going to 
remodel the North Hall which will 
especially benefit the music and sci- 
ence departments, he added. Mr. 
Welch was introduced to the students 
by P. M. Johnson.

Sporting new coverings of tan and

of our juco clubroom. The two couches 
and two chairs were covered by the 
Newman Dry Goods store under the 
direction of Shirley Gilliland and Jean

for it. A suitable light has been placed 
over the table and is "just what we

Further improvements projected 
include the cleaning of the drapes 
and the repairing of the drape rods.

T. T. EDITORS CONFRONTED 
WITH THE "INEXPLICABLE" 
AS SET FORTH BY CONRAD 

Joseph Conrad was right on 
the beam when he wrote of the 
"inexplicable element of life" — 
(he incalculable mystery, the un- 
expected turn of fate. It has man- 
ifest d itself in the primary ar- 
rangements for this edition of the 
Tier Ta'es. 

T.T. editors had every reason 
to believe that there would be 
several excellent pictures of the 

Tigerama in this issue but 

Destiny decreed otherwise. (Edi- 
tor's note: This is not meant to 
reflect upon the photographer. 
Ronald Pyer has made some swell 
shots for the paper this winter.) 

That Conrad recognized the in- 
comprehensible aspect of life is 
shown in his characters Jim and 
the other officers of the "Patna", 
who believed with all their hearts 
that the rotten bulkhead would 
give way any instant. But it held 
out after all. 

Such twists of fate as this 
have caused T. T. editors to tear 
their hair. (They actually will 
tear their hair if the copy's late. 
Modlin threatened to put oil in 
it.) 

Confident that a bulletin re- 
questing a meeting of the T. T. 
staff would be posted on Thurs- 
day morning, the editors went 
merrily on their way. The bulletin 
was not posted until afternoon; a 
few staff members saw the bullet- 
in; fewer showed up at the meet- 
ing Which just goes 

to show that Fate (and The 
Printing Shop) has more influ- 
ence over this paper (?) than 
the editors (?).

Dear Jucos, 

Just wanted to let you know that 
we seniors had a grand time at the 
Tigerama. Hope we can give as good 
a one next year. Those decorations 
must have taken days! 

Of course, every year the college 
students try to make the Tigerama a 
little better than the year before. 
That's the way it'll be with us. 

But I don't see how we can possibly 
do ALL the things you did. For in- 
stance, only Kenneth Dodson could 
have read the notes of his speech in 
pitch-black darkness and put it over 
successfully. And only Norman Moody 
could move a piano and knock down 
a fence at the same time. And how 
that piano lamp ever worked after 
being dropped on the floor is beyond 
me. 

The whole affair was just too, too 
elegant. Everyone was so sophisticated 
and grown up! In this respect your 
party outdid by far our junior-senior 
prom. 

You have set an example for us in 
behavior. But I sincerely hope that 
next year we will not divide into 
cliques and leave our GUESTS so 
much to themselves. Of course, the 
Tigerama IS supposed to be a formal 
dance, but not even all the A. C. 
students can dance. 

We really should plan some way 
for the hosts and the guests to mingle 
and get to know each other. If the 
out-of-town seniors could see what 
fine students there are in ACJC, they 
would be more likely to come here 
next year. . . .but we don't give them 
a chance to know us. 

I hope you won't think me rude 
for finding fault with the Tigerama, 
but there's no sense in letting the 
same thing happen year after year 
without even an attempt at improve- 
ment. It's all right to be sophisticated 
and mature but it's not all right to 
become a snobbish iceberg. 
Yours sincerely, 
a high school senior

At Austin, Texas 

A petite brown-haired college

A tall man, over six feet tall, with

MEET MR. ED— 

Freshman Desires 
To Be Engineer 

Mr. Ed of the week is a heavy-set 
freshman "Juco Joe", destined to be a 
football star for ACJC next year (we 
hope ) . 

His old stompin' ground is Newkirk 
High School, but that was a long time 
ago — before he served with the army 
for several years. A tan four-door, 
slio-htb' beat-up Ford with an Okla- 
homa license tag takes him back and 

lw t *i CO ocilOOl. 

When questioned about his favorite 
movie stars, Mr. Ed replied that he 
doesn't like anything he can't get hold 
of and therefore they just don't rate 
with him. 

At present he is taking a pre-engi- 
neering course and hopes to become a 
petroleum engineer. Mr. Ed's friends 
kid him about becoming bald, but his 
curley brown locks are as pretty as

Tigers Make 
Good Showing 
In State Meet 

The Ark City Tigers made by far 
their best showing of the year at the 
Fort Scott athletic meets, April 26, 
with the six-man track team garner- 
ing 51 Va points for second place, the 
tennis team.paced by Don Duncan, 
winning both the state singles and 
doubles crown, and the golf team, 
composed of H. J. Brady and Carl 
Holman, placing second and third, re- 
spectively in state competition. 

Jim, Shelhamer local sport star 
took individual track honors with 16 
5/6 points. Ark City held its own 
against the larger teams until the 
distance runs when El Dorado began 
to pull away, placing two men in the 
half-mile and three in the mile. Ark 
City had no members running in these 
races. The other five members of the 
squfd which finished only eight points 
behind the Grizzlies were Earl Grin- 
nell, Willis Shelhamer, Jack Rine, 
Norman Ostrander, and Carl Holman. 

Don Duncan breezed through the 
early rounds of the state singles 
tournament, but met and defeated his 
toughest opponent, Grist of El Dorado, 
in the semi-finals. He then downed 
Johnson, another Grizzly for the title. 
Duncan teamed with Gene Bell to win 
the doubles championship, defeating 
Grist and Johnson in the finals. 

H. J. Brady finished eight strokes 
behind El Dorado's entry in the state 
golf match and Carl Holman finished 
right behind Brady as they took sec- 
ond and third in medal play.

B.U. Changes 
To GI. U. As 
Vets Return 

Junior College Has Largest 
Enrollment Since '42; Boys 
Comprise Large Percentage 

The Arkansas City Junior College's 
nickname of B. U. (Basement Uni- 
versity) may be changed to GI. U. as 
the huge number of veterans return- 
ing to classrooms have pushed the to- 
tal enrollment for the 1946-47 term 
up to 250. 

The boys, representing 75 per cent 
of the student body, are in the major- 
ity for the first time, in several years. 
The present enrollment isthe largest 
since the '41-'42 year when there were 
270 ,'ucos.Dean K.R. Galle states that 
he expects the numberto increase as 
the term advances and estimates that 
there will be over 260 students by 
Oct. 1. 

Special attention will be given to 
the ex-GIs, many of whom have been 
out of school from two to six years 
and need review in some particular 
subject. Veterans attending the col- 
lege under the GI Bill of Rights are 
being given a more complete under- 
standing of this plfn in connection 
with educational benefits. 

The school term was opened on 
Sept. 3 with students attending 
classes during the morning. New 
locks for the lockers were ordered 
and assigned during the second week 
of school and activity tickets have 
also been distributed. 

Due to the increased enrollment, a 
wide and varied field of subjects is 
being taught. Many new courses have 
been included in the curriculum and 
new instructors have been added to 
the faculty. 

ACJC is rapidly returning to its 
pre-war status. 



Bell Defeats 
Simpkins As 
Council Head 



The Navy triumphed over the Army 
Air Corps as Gene Bell defeated Lloyd 
Simpkins in the election for student 
council president, held the first of the 
week. 

Bell, a sophomore, served three 
years in the navy and re-entered 
junior college during the second se- 
mester of last year. Simpkins, also a 
sophomore, served in the army air 
corps. He hails from Newkirk. 

The nominee of the freshman class, 
Bell also tied with Simpkins for the 
sophomore nomination. 

A total of only 96 votes were cast 
in the election out of a possible 250. 
The polls were held open an extra day 
as only 60 votes were cast in the al- 
lotted time. 

The council met for organization 
Wednesday, and made plans for op- 
erating the concession stand for the 
Parsons game.

Maag Will Instruct 
Juco Debate Work 

A debate class, coached by A. E. 
Maag, is to be organized for the Juco 
students. No definite plans have been 
made yet for competing with other 
schools, but the topic which has been 
selected is, "Resolved that labor should

ment of industry". 

Those expressing interest for this

/}/& fyjelcamed 

To all you new students who are 
gracing the halls of A. C. J. C. this 
year, we put on the latch string and 
say "WELCOME"! An increase of 
155 over last year's enrollment should 
add many things to our college life. 

Postwar changes already included 
in the college set-up include: employ- 
ment of additional or new teachers, 
crowded classrooms, the organization 
of a football team, possibleformations 
of debate and forensic squads, an in- 
creased enrollment of veterans and a 
decreased percentage of women, and 
the relating of many, many, many 
"sea stories." 

Events we are eagerly looking for- 
ward to are: the football games and 
other athletic contests, parties, socials 
and holidays, the starting of a pep 
club and many other organizations 
and Arkalalah. 

It will be possible for us to have 
these things and many more if we all 
pitch in and work together. Anything 
worth having is worth working for. 
So while we're welcoming you juco 
joes and janes to good old B. U. we're 
also stating that we have a job to do 
in making a successof the Arkansas 
City Junior College and that it can 
only be done with your help, interest 
and co-operation. 

Professor :( to freshman entering 
class late): When were you born? 

Freshman: "April 2" 

Professor: "Being a little late must 
be a habit with you

The "Tiger Tales" is entering its 
third year of publication. We still 
find it necessary to stress the fact 
that this is not a staff paper but a 
school paper and should include news, 
items, and ideas of interest to all of 
the student body. 

If you have any criticisms, good 
or bad, which you wish to give to the 
staff regarding the paper, to the 
faculty regarding the school or school 
rules and regulations, or to the school 
in general, write them down and 
drop the paper in the Tiger Tales 
box in the club room. If printable, 
vour ideas will be expressed through 



an "Open Letter to the Editor" col- 
umn. (Incidentally, this box in the 
club room gratefully appreciates any 
choice bits of gossip or other inter- 
esting news you may have in your 
possession. — R.J.

Hinchee Beams As 
Males Join Chorus 

Have you noticed C. L. Hinchee's 
bright and beaming face ? The cause 
of his elation is that when he stands 
in front of the college chorus class 
his eye has to rove to view the vast 
territory the enrollment covers. As 
he scanned the group and saw so 
many male faces, he said with enthu- 
siasm, "I believe we have enough 
voices and talent to put on our own 
show this year!" 

Mr. Hinchee plans to have several 
ensembles such as trios and quartetes. 
So keep an eye open and an ear 
cocked in the direction of the college 
chorus and you will be assured of 
some fine entertainment. 

Students who like to sing and have 
not yet enrolled in the course are 
encouraged to do so. 

An interesting and enjoyable two 
hour class which is being offered to 
the juco students this year is Fund- 
amentals of Athletics. This course is 
taught by W. G. Speer. 

Students are instructed in the 
theory and methods of C03cM"g the 
major sports-football, basketball, and 
track. The course will be offered 
second semester for the benefit of 
those who were not able to enroll in 
it this semester.

ence, they are expected to wreck the 
title hopes of any pennant - bound 
squad. Members of the football team

orking tor 
New Mentor 

One of ACjC's largest football 
squads has been working out since 
the beginning of school, getting into 
shape for their first game of the sea- 
son here Friday night. 

The present squad, made up of 
veterans, now totals over 50. Coach 
"Bunt" Speer has three juco elevens 
running signals, but with the addition 
of six Oklahoma gridsters, he will 
probably start a fourth team into 
action soon. 

Included in the line-ups will be: 
Bill Walz, 220 pound fullback, who 
made Ark Valley in '40 and '41, play- 
ed with Wichita University in '42 and 
played with a group of professionals 
in India when he was in the Army. 

For the quarterback position, will 
be speedy Earl Grinnell, all star In- 
dian athlete from Chilocco. Outstand- 
ing backs are Roy Hadley and Ernie 
Taton, both of whom played for the 
local Bulldogs in '44, receiving Ark- 
Valley positions. Featured players on 
the line include Jim Hollenback who 



made Ark-Valley tackle in '41 and '42. 
Hollenback was also co- captain of tie 
Bulldogs in '42. Kenneth Quimby, 
power-house tackle who has been 
turning in fine play in recent scrim- 
mages, is expected to give the opposi- 
tion plenty of trouble. Other top 
contenders for the line are Bob Brady, 
end. Joe Allen, guard, Ray Fanning, 
tackle, Bud Chaplin, end, Jack Rine, 
center, Melvin Endicott, guard, and 
Phil Smith, center. 

Other candidates are Kenneth Kline, 
Coy Squyres, Walt Mathiasmeier,

Parsons First 
Foe of Tigers 
In '46 Season 

The local jucos get their first test 
of the season tomorrow night against 
Parsons. Coach Carnie Smith of Par- 
sons has a squad of 35 players, com- 
posed mostly of local veterans, of 
which to pick a first team, while the 
Tigers have a squad of more than 50 
to pick a first team. Because this is 
the first game for both teams since 
'43, little is known of Parsons' 
strength. Coach Bunt Speer's star- 
studded team, which seems headed 
for the conference title, is expecting 
a hard fought game from the silent 
team from the East. 

The 1946 schedule for the Tigers 
give their opponents slight odds with 
five out of nine games booked away 
from the home field. After Parsons, 
the Tigers play Coffeyville there, Oct. 
4; Hutchinson there, Oct. 11; Prat 1 
here Oct. 18; Tonkawa there, Oct. 25; 
Dodge City here, Oct. 13; Independ- 
ence here, Nov. 8; El Dorado there. 
Nov. 15; and Fort Scott there, Nov. 
22.

Held by Cardinals 

Last Friday night Coach Carnie 
Smith sent the Cardinals through a 
full game scrimmage under the Par- 
sons' lights. He used the entire team 
in a free-substituting game which 
found several players at more than 
one position. 

After spending this week smooth- 
ing out last Friday's rough spots, 
Coach Smith expects the team to be 
in good shape for their game with 
the local Tigers. 

The Cardinal's tentative fi r s t 
string will include: Lortz and Car- 
penter, ends; Lawhorn and Campbell, 
tackles; Altepeter and Kyle, guards; 
Carnahan, center; Hartman, Rude,

4-H ers Attend State 
Fair at Hutchinson 

If you see any sleepy eyed people 
with colds around the high school and 
junior college halls, they are, baiTing 
those that keep late hours, probably 
some of the 4 H'ers that attend the 
4-H encampment at the State Fair at 
Hutchinson last week. 

Twelve members, two leaders and 
two county agents went from Cowley 
County, eight of whom were from 
Arkansas City. High school and col- 
lege students who attended were Max 
Stacey, Roger Warren, Dorothy Has- 
lett, Georgia and Iris Rahn. About 
800 people from all over the state 
stayed in the encampment building. 

Iris Rahn was one of the six from 
this county who were initiated into 
Who's Who, an honorary state 4-H 
club. 

The purpose of this occasion was 
the judging of home economics pro- 
ducts and livestock, demonstrations, 
livestock showmanship, and style re- 
view. Cowley county received three 
firsts and a third in judging, and two 
blue ribbons in the style review, but 
the results of the demonstrations are 
not known as yet. The individual 
members' exhibits also received 
various awards. 

The highlight of the week was an 
address to the 4 H'ers from Governor 
Andrew Schoeppel. He praised their 
work and declared himself behind 
wholeheartedly. 

The State Fair board and the 
Chamber of Commerce treated the 
4-H members to a trip through the 
Kansas State Industrial Reformatory, 
a movie uptown, free seats in the 
gr.rr.dstand for night and afternoon 
performances and a blimp ride for 
one boy and one girl chosen by the 
members.

Hubby wandered in at 3:00 a. m. after 
a wonderful night at the stag party. 
In a few minutes a series of unearthly 
squawks howled from the radio. Wifie

twisting the dials frantically. "For

she said. "G'way! G'way! dn't bother

The Feminine Touch 

by Rahn 

"Five-love" may be heard around 
the vicinity of the Wilson and Paris 
Park tennis courts these days as the 
members of the college girl's gym 
class start off the school year by br- 
ushing up on their tennis technique. 

Many of he girls are old veterans 
at the game while the rest of us are 
still trying to "get the hang" of it.Tr- 
ansportation to the courts is provided 
by Betty Jo Floyd and yours truly. As 
there are only twenty enrolled in the 
pnysical education course,we pack 
nicely in the two cars. 

Miss Edith Joyce Davis, instructor, 
reports that the class will play tennis 
as long as the weather permits and 
then there will be instruction given in 
badmitton, basketball, golf and other 
sports. Miss Davis also proudly states 
that for once she has plenty of tennis 
balls (she seems to have collected 
them after the tournament) and that 
the basketballs are being repaired.

Mem&i Keep the

We, the students of the Arkansas 
City Junior College, have a club room 
which is ours to enjoy. Ping pong e- 
quipment, cards, a phonograph and 
records are available for our use. 

Several of the juco sophomores as- 
sisted with the cleaning and redeco- 
rating of the room last spring and 
work on this project is expected to be 
continued this year. 

The college's increased enrollment 
requires that each student assume

room neat and orderly. Let's do our

Record Player Is 
Fixed; De-moused 
By H. Thompson 

When the Student Council had the 
record player taken from the club 
rooms to be repaired, someone jok- 
ingly said, "Have that dead mouse 
taken out of there. That thing stinks." 

Little did he know! 

That very evening as Herb Thomp- 
son was working on the record player, 
he also noticed a distinctly foul odor. 
He was even more alarmed when, up- 
on removing the motor unit, he found 
not only one mouse but a mother and 
her young one, both very dead. 
Apparently the mother had been un- 
successfully teaching "junior" how 
not to get caught in the music box. 
Her tail was neatly wound around the 
rotor. 

Now the record player is back in 
place and doing very well, thanks to 
Herb's de-mousing job, which he did 
free of charge.

arried Vets Think "Little 
Woman" Is Valuable Asset 



Married veterans attending ACJC 
definitely agree that being married 
has its advantage in the light that 
the "little woman", or "their better 
half", helps them considerably in their 
college work. The following replies 
were given to the roving reporter as 
he asked, "Is it an advantage or dis- 
advantage to be married and go to 
college?" "Does the wife hinder or 
help the student?" 

KERMIT SANDEFUR: "Being 
married gives me invaluable assist- 
ance, especially in German". 

REX HOWE: "You have more time 
when you don't have to look for a 
date". 

KIRK BOONE: "She helps me with 
my difficult subjects. With the girl 
shortage what it is here, I am glad I 
brought mine with me". 



Two Vocal Groups

Mary Kay Burkharth, and Ann Mc 
Adam, is not only pleasant to see but 
also makes fine listening. Betty Ann 
Pearson will accompany them. 

A quartette made up of Barbara 
Garris, Roy Hadley, Ernest Taton, 
and Doug McCall, entitled "The Three 
Jacks and a Queen", is another en- 
semble to look forward to hearing. 
The groups are under the direction 
of C. L. Hinchee.

Red Ravens 
Hand Tigers 
First Defeat 



The fighting Tigers dropped their 
game at Coffeyville last Friday to the 
Coffeyville Red Ravens by a score of 
20-0. The Ravens got off to a good 
start as they pushed across two touch- 
downs in the first five minutes of play 
winning their 30th straight grid con- 
test. 

The Tigers were slowed down due 
to injuries, which kept several start- 
ers on the bench thoughout the game 
and another regular, Joe Allen, didn't 
even make the trip because of a bad- 
ley bruised leg. 

The Ravens opened the game by 
kicking to the Tigers, which found 
Taton catching the ball and running 
it to own 20. After three running 
plays for no gain, Grinnell kicked to 
the Ravens 35 yard line. The Ravens 
in two plays drove the pigskin down 
to the Arks 6 yard line and on the 
next play Mace, Raven fullback, 
scored. Denham converted giving the 
Ravens a 7-0 led in the first three 
minutes of play. 

Two minutes later, an alert Raven 
pounces on the first of the Tiger 
fumbles on the Arks' 10 yard line. 
Coffeyville drew a 15 yard penalty, 
but on the next play Parks passed 15 
yards to Stone, who threw a wild 
lat- ral. Shutt picked up the lateral 
and scored standing up. Denham again 
corv rted making the score 14-0. The 
i"~st of the first period saw both teams 
fumbling and throwing the ball away 
with the quarter ending as Grinnell 
caus'ht a Raven pass on his own 12 
yard line. 

In the second period, the Tigers 
opened one of their few sustained 
offenses of the game. Quarterback 
Grinnell threw passes to Roy Hadley 
for 30 yards and to Bub Chaplin for 
15 yards. But the next time he threw 
otip into the hands of Coffeyville 
fullback Mace on the Coffeville 40. He 
returned it for 20 yards, but Fanning, 
rus?ged Tiger tackle covered a Raven 
fumble on the next play to end that 
threat. 

In the third period the Tigers muff ed 
th'ir bst chance to scor°, when 
Grinnell fumbled after driving: to the 
Coffeyville 20 yard line. The last 
Coffeyville touchdown came in the 
third when John Christie, Tiger back 
was forced to throw a wild pass on 
his own 15 yard line and the pass 
landed in the hands of Stone, Coffey- 
ville's left end, who ran the ball over 
scoring their third touchdown. 

In the fourth period Brady, rugged 
left end for the Tigers, had a conflict 
with right end Roscoe of Coffeyville 
and both players left the game. The 
Arks fumbled twice again in the 
fourth and the Ravens once drove to 
the Tigers one yard line but failed to 

score.

Tigers To Meet 
Hutchinson Squad 

The Ark City Tigers meet the for- 
midable Hutchinson Blue Dragons to- 
morrow night on the Dragon's home 
field. 

This game will be a severe test of 
the Tiger's speed and strength. The 
Blue Dragons are slightly favored, 
with two league wins to their credit 
against the Tiger's one win and one 
loss. At any rate, the Tigers are pre- 
pared to offer stiff opposition and a 
hard-fought battle can be expected. 

Hard-hitting Bill Walz is to see 
more action in the Hutchinson game 
than he did in last week's contest at 
Coffeyville, where he was able to play 
only a few minutes due to a leg in- 
jury. Speedy Earl Grinnell, will be 
playing at full strength after having 
been slowed down last week due to 
injuries.

Tigers Smash 
Cardinals in 
Opener, 24-7 

Earl Grinnell Sparks 
Team with Runs, Passes; 
Blocking, Tackling Good 

A well trained Tiger team, showing 
an abundance of speed, strength, and 
skill, overpowered the Parson Cardin- 
als by a score of 24 to 7 in their 
initial game of the season, September 
27. It was ACJC's first grid contest 
since 1942, and the debut was under 
the tutelage of Coach "Bunt" Speer. 

Flashy Earl Grinnell, key man of 
the Tiger's offense, started the ball 
rolling in the first few minutes of 
play, when he took a Parson's punt 
on his own 30, reversed the field and 
ran the pigskin for 70 yards. 

Early in the second quarter Grinnell 
again got his hands on the ball and 
with the aid of some good blocking 
he broke through right tackle scoring 
his second touchdown of the game. 

In the middle of the second quarter 
Phil Smith, alert Tiger guard, re- 
covered a Parsons fumble of a punt 
giving the Arks the ball on Parsons 
22 yard line. Earl Grinnell then threw 
to Bob Brady, rugged right end, who 
took the ball high in the air and raced 
for the third touchdown after eluding 
several would-be tacklers. 

Final Arkansas City points came 
in the third period with the Tigers 
taking the kickoff and marching from 
their own 33 yard line sti-aight down 
the field. Fullback Bill Waltz did the 
heavy work crashing through both 
sides of the line for most of the gains. 
When the Arks got within 12 yards 
of the goal line, Grinnell tossed his 
second touchdown pass to left end, 
Bud Chaplin, who caught the ball 
standing all alone in the end zone. 

Just before the third quarter ended, 
the Cardinals drove to the Tigers' 
two-foot line and as the first play of 
the fourth quarter Dicky plunged 
over for Parsons' lone tally of the 
game. 

Coach "Bunt" Speer made a free 
substituting game of it, using 27 
players in the contest. Most of the 
starters were watching the game from 
the bench during the major part of 
the second half. The powerful Tiger 
line showed tremendous strength and 
aggressiveness throughout the entire 
game which contributed much towards 
victory. 

Brady, Fanning, Hollemback, Rine, 
Allen, Quimby, Chaplin, Taton$ Walz, 
Grinnell, and Hadley formed the 
starting lineup. Substitutes for the 
game were Belt, Dalton, Endicott, 
Hearne, Mathiasmeier, McCormick, 
Simpkins, Smith, Squyres, G. Ward, 
Larkin, Christie, Wimer, Boone, 
Meyers, T. Ward and C. Ward.

Fate Makes Debut As Jucos 
itness Coffeyville Game 



Fate made its debut last Friday 
night according to the juco students 
who attended the Tiger football game 
at Coffeyville. Through the efforts 
of Gene Bell, students council presi- 
dent, a special bus was chartered to 
take 27 rooters and P. M. (Perry 
Como) Johnson to the game. 

About 15 miles from their des- 
tination the riders were suddenly 
aroused by the familiar sound of a 
blowout. Jim Ledgerwood and Bell 
aided the driver in putting the "one 
and only" spare in place and the 
group went merrily on their way. 

Upon arrival at the game, it was 
learned that the bus in which the 
team was riding had also experienced 
a right rear blow out and had also 
used their "one and only" spare. 
Therefore the two buses kept close 
together on the return trip. 

When 25 miles from A. C, the 
rooters were confronted with a second 
blowout and waited for two hours 



while the second bus took the team 
members to town and returned for 
them. Before getting home, the bus 
was stopped by Norman Rickords, 
Mary Mulkey, Bob Marrs, Rebecca 
Rine and Bill Marrs— their spare tire 
hrd also given out so they joined the 
delegation. 

It was also discovered that Chuck 
Futehinson, Rose Watson, Melba 
Thompson, Ann McAdam, Billy Joe 
Sirith and Betty Humphries had car 
trouble, abandoned their car at Sedan 
and "hitched" rides to Coffeyville 
with other local jucos. 

Many of the 60 Arkansas Cityans 
who attended the game fell into bed 
at 5:30 a. m. Saturday— -having exper- 
ie?iced a night thev'll never forget 
and wondering if they shouldn't be- 
ware of Friday, the fourth instead of 
the thirteenth. 

P. S.— Fate also had a hand in the 
game itself as the Tigers squad was 
downed 20-0. 



Juco Students: Learn 
Yojr School Song 

The junior college song was intro- 
duced in 1933. Archie San Romani, 
former music instructor who died in 
1941, wrote the music for this song. 
Miss Lucille Tlette, a former instruct- 
or of mathematics and biologicial 
sciences at the junior college, wrote 
the words. 

As a student of the junior college, 
learn your college song. Hex*e are the 
words : 

Let us sing of A. C. college days 
With joyous songs and rousing cheers 

(Rah! Rah!) 
The happy friendships made will al- 
ways bring 
Sweet mem'ries in the after years. 
We pledge to you A. C. our loyalty. 
In work or play we'll stand the test 
The orange and black of junior col- 
lege 
Will always wave among the best. 
Colors gay will fly again today 
For A. C. Tigers brave and strong 

(Rah! Rah!) 
We cheer for you in victory or defeat 
Our voices raise in happy song. 
It is for loyalty and fellowship 
We love and praise and honor give. 
The spirit of our junior college 
Will ever more in mem'ry live.

The absent minded professor walked

"Certainly, sir," said the barber. 

"Would you mind taking off your

"I didn't know there were ladies

Pep Assembly Held 
For Parsons Game 

J co students gathered in the junior 
high auditorium on Friday morning, 
Sept. 27, for the first pep assembly of

tion for the Parsons football game. 

Coach "Bunt" Speer introduced the 
team members and Barbara Garris 
and Rosalee Jones led the group in a 
number of yells. 

A pep band which played several 
numbers (the most outstanding of 
which was Tom Ward's rendition of 
"Tiger Rag"), was composed of: Bill 
Johnson, Norman Rickords, Tom 
Y/ard, George Ward, and Charles 
Ward-juco students; and Jack Larkin, 
Jark Burnett, Charles Tanner, Loren

The junior college chorus will play 
a major part in the coronation as they 
will form a musical background for 
the program by singing three songs. 
The high school and college orchestra 
will play for the ceremony. The senior 
high chorus, will also sing. The high 
school usherettes and dancers from 
the gym classes will also have a part 
in the program. 

The pages for the queen were pick- 
ed from junior high school. They are 
Donald Colbert, J. C. LouderbacK, 
Richard Maae;, Robert Nims, Gary 
Pannell, and John Shirley. The sceptor 
and crown bearers will be Norman

When asked if he was thrilled about

Social Held 
Wednesday 

A Halloween social under the name 
of "The Spook's Parade" was held 
Wednesday evening in the auditorium. 
Entertainment consisted of a "Spook's 
Alley", square dancing, social dancing, 
and playing cards. Bobbing for apples 
and relay races were held in contest 
form. 

"Walt" Fesler called the square 
dance in which the girls placed one 
shoe in the middle of the floor and 
the boys picked out a shoe and found 
its owner to determine his partner for 
the dance. 

The auditorium was decorated in 
typical Halloween style and everyone 
was attired in overalls, jeans, and 
slacks. Cider and doughnuts were 
served during the evening. 

The members of the social commit- 
tee who planned the social are Betty 
Ann Pearson, chairman, Betty Pratt, 
Phil Smith, Rebecca Rine, and Elwood 
Keller.

Three Jucos 
Are Married 



Wedding bells have tolled for three 
junior college students within the past 
two weeks. 

Betty Blackburn, office secretary, 
and Ned Pratt, navy veteran, were 
married at the Baptist Church on 
Oct. 20 and are now residing at 112 
South C street. They were both grad- 
uated from the local high school; 
Betty in 1945 and Ned in 1942. 

Ileana Crawford and O. J. Palmer 
were married on Oct. 11 at the Central 
Christian Church and have just return- 
ed from a ten-day honeymoon trip to 
Texas. Ileana was graduated from 
A. C. H. S. in '45 and O. J. attended 
junior college following his graduation 
from high school in '44. 

Mr. and Mrs. Pratt and Mrs. Palmer 
are continuing their education at A. C.

QameA Wotdd 
d4el<a Stuaetttd, 

The auditorium gymnasium has 
been used for many yeares for basket- 
ball games and concerts. It should be 
put to further use. Why couldn't the 
junior college and the high school 
sponsor a social in the auditorium 
after the basketball and football 
games ? 

The Ranch House was opened as an 
answer to the question "What shall 
we do after the games?". However 
when one goes to the teen center he 
finds it necessary to strain his ears 
to hear the music, to yell in order to 
be heard and to know commando tac- 
tics in trying to circle the dance floor. 
From junior high through junior col- 
lege is too wide an age range for any 
organization to have. 

The DeMolay organization has can- 
celled their Friday evening dances 
which has cut off the other outlet to 
entertainment. Yet every Friday the 
auditorium, the most convenient place 
for students to gather, is shut up 
tight as a drum. 

If it could be arranged to have 
these socials after the games, it 
would give the students something to 
do. Out-of-town visitors might also 
be extended an invitation to the 
socials.

Tigers Move 
To Tonkawa 
Friday Night 

The Tigers will travel south of the 
border Friday night where they will 
encounter a tough Oklahoma eleven, 
the Tonkawa Mavericks, in a non- 
league game. The Mavericks out 
fought the Hutchinson Blue Dragons 
in their first game of the season beat- 
ing the Dragons 6 to 0. The Mavericks 
who use a single-wing offense, boast 
of a heavy line along with a strong 
backfield. 

The only defeat Tonkawa is known 
to have suffered was by Zimmerman 
Okla., who beat the Mavericks 12 to 7. 

Although the Mavericks have al- 
ways been a hard team for the Tigers 
to beat, the orange and black squad 
riding high on the passing arm of 
Earl Grinnell is expected to hang up 
it;-' fourth victory. 

Next week the Tigers meet Dodge 
City here in a afternoon game follow- 
ing the Arkalalah parade. 

The starting line up will probably 
see Grinnell, Taton, Hadley, Walz in 
backfield positions and Brady, Hollen- 
bnck, Smith, Dalton, Allen, Quimby, 
ard Chaplin will form the bulwark of 
the team.

Jr. College Sports Subs Shine 



The Feminine Touch 

by Rahn 

"Oh, my aching back, those exer- 
cises in gym are getting me down." 
These are the words of many of the 
Juco gym gals. Miss Davis started the 
girls in on exercising since it is too 
cold to play out doors, and they are 
enjoying it — groan. 

The interests of the gym class has 
changed from tennis to volleyball, and 
the gals are really showing talent. 
The group is divided into two groups, 
and the captains are "Stink" Floyd 
and Betty Pearson. 

Miss Davis gave a posture test the 
other day, and on a whole they came 
not very well. Some of the gals had to 
line up their ears with the rest 
of their body though.

Grinnell Runs Kickoff 100 
Yards; Arks Win 37-24 
After Leading Entire Game 

The Tigers scored in every period 
to beat the Hutchinson Blue Dragons, 
37 to 24, on the Dragon's home field, 
October 11. It was the first league 
loss for the Blue Dragons after two 
overwhelming victories. 

Earl Grinnell, fleet-footed Tiger, 
made one of the most thrilling runs 
of the game when he took the opening 
kickoff and ran it back the full dis- 
tance of the field behind vicious 
blocking to score standing up. 

After Walter Dalton, center, set up 
the second touchdown by intercepting 
fi Hutchinson pass, Grinnell took the 
bv)] over for his second score. 

In the second and third periods 
each team scored twice. In the third

As Tigers Beat 
Beaver Squad 

Coach "Bunt" Speer's juco Tigers 
held the lead all the way to bury the 
Pratt Beavers, 34-0, at Curry Field, 
Oct. 18. 

The Tigers scored five touchdowns, 
two of which were made by substi- 
tutes, two conversions and a safety. 
The visitors never threatened and 
were on the local's half of the field 
only once. 

With only 22 players, four of which 
are playing their first season foot- 
ball, the Beavers could do little 
more than slow the Tigers down on 
several of their marches to the 
goalposts. 

Melvin Endicott, reserve guard, 
brought the crowd to its feet as he 
dragged down a deflected Beaver pass 
and raced 40 yards to score. 

A 61 yard runback, by Keith 
Hearne, substitute, back on a Pratt 
punt gave the crowed another un- 
expected thrill. 

Driving 53 yards in eight plays 
with passes from quarterback, Earl 
Grinnell to end, Bob Brady and 
halfback, Ernie Taton, the ball rest- 
ed on the two yard line. 
Grinnell sneaked over for the first 
score of the game. He then passed to 
Brady giving the Tigers a 7-0 lead in 
the game. 

Taton scored through left tackle in 
the second peroid after a pass from 
Grinnell to end, Bud Chaplin, picked 
up 10 yards, Roy Hadley slipped 
through the tackle for nine and Math- 
iasmeier made a first down on a 
plunge. 

For another score, Kenneth Gent, 
third string quarterback, sneaked over 
and Charlie Ward, substitute back, 
plunged for the extra point. 

Early in the third quarter, a Pratt 
kicker was forced to fall on his own 
blocked punt in the end zone for a 
safety, giving A. C. two additional 
points. 

Later in the game Taton again 
scored through left tackle. The con- 
version kick was blocked. 



score 25-18, but the Tigers struck 
back swiftly through the air when 
George Ward threw a pass to Taton, 
who caught the pigskin and scored. 

The Dragons drove through the re- 
serve line for their last touchdown 
to make it 31-24. 

Ray Fanning, tackle, intercepted 
a Hutchinson pass and ran 45 yards to 
score standing up just a few minutes 
before the game was over, making 
the final score 37 to 24. 

Other Tiger touchdowns were made 
by fullback, Bill Walz and end, Bud 
Chaplin, who scored in the second and 
third periods respectively.

Mrs. Ryter Speaks 
To Juco Students 

Experiences as a missionary in the 
Camei*oons were related by Mrs. Rose 
Ryter, for twenty years a medical 
missionary in Africa, to junior college 
students in their October 17 assembly. 

Mrs. Ryter emphasized the need 
for trained young people to serve _ as 
doctors, teachers, and missonaries. 
The Ryter family hopes to return _ to 
Africa sometime soon after Christ- 
mas, and hope to take along a supply 
of mechanical tools to help the natives 
in their schools. 

"We try to teach Christianity, but 
Christianity would mean little to these 
people unless we taught them a new 
and better way of life." Mrs. Ryter 
told students. "There is never a 
monotonous moment for the African 
missionary," she continued. Experi- 
ence crowds in upon one, he yearns 
for time to be alone, a chance to think 
without interuption." 

A soprano solo, "Homing" was sung 
by Mildred Wagner accompanied by 
Betty Smith on the piano. Devotional 
services were given by John Skinner. 
Wilma Tanquary acted as chairman 
and introduced the speaker.

More And Better 
Socials Needed 

What's your opinion? How could 
the junior college socials be im- 
proved? Sophomores that were asked 
these questions seemed to believe the 
socials should be improved. More 
activities and more socials received 
the most votes. 

BETTY SANDERSON: "I think there 
should be a leader or someone to dir- 
ect the recreation and keep some or- 
der to the program of the socials." 
DON BURKHART: "I'd like less for- 
mal socials. We should have socials 
after the games and MORE socials. 
BETTY BLACKBURN: "Socials will 
be more successful if everyone will 
"back" the new social committee." 
NORMAN OSTRANDER: "A greater 
variety of things to do." 
MARJORIE CRABTREE: "The guys 
and pals need to mix instead of being 
grouped. I think the lack of girls 
cause the men to dislike the socials. 
Perhaps they should be allowed to 
bring their own dates." 

(Editor's Note:) This poll was taken

Chorus Class Has 
Chicken Dinner 

If you can smell the aroma of 
chicken in the halls it is left over from 
the chicken dinner the college chorus 
had Monday evening. A delicious cre- 
ation of chicken and noodles was stir- 
red up by chef, Charles Hinchee. 

Chorus members scurried in the di- 
rection of the study hall carrying 
plates piled high with good things to 
eat. Groans and sighs that followed 
were proof that the dinner was a 
success and everyone had more than 
satisfied their appetites.

dinner on Nov. 18, and also voted to 
meet on the first and third Monday

Veterans Find That 
Cutting Class Is An 
Expensive Luxury 

Class cuts are expensive luxuries 
for veterans. If a married veteran cuts 
three class periods in one day, it will 
cost him $3 or $1 a course hour. For 
a single veteran the figures are $2.17 
a day or roughly 72 cents an hour de- 
ducted from his accumulated leave 
pay. That is the sad news from the 
Vetrans administration. 

Under the G.I. Bill of Rights, vets. 
in training are entitled to accumulate 
leave pay at the rate of 2% days a 
month, not to exceed 30 days for al2- 
month period. Unauthorized class 
absences, however, are deducted from 
the trainees leave entitlement at the 
discretion of the Veterans adminis- 
tration, according to Dean K. R. Galle. 

Trainees are paid at the same rate 
as that on which their subsistence 
allowances are based, but they cannot 
receive the leave pay unless it is re- 
quested. 

"If a trainee requests payment for 
leave, it simply means that his accum- 
ulated leave time will be deducted 
from his periods of entitlement to 
training under the G. I. Bill. Thus if 
a trainee has a short period of en- 
titlement, he ought not request leave 
pay," Dean Galle pointed out. 

Class absences caused by illness are 
reported to the Veterans adminis- 
tration at Wichita and the decision as 
to whether or not such absences are 
authorized is up to the regional office. 
"If vets are tempted on these beaut- 
iful Indian summer afternoons to stay 
at home and relax, they might stop 
to think of how nice that extra few 
dollars would look in their wallets," 
Mr. Galle suggested.

Smith Is Crowned Queen 





Betty Smith, prominent junior 
college sophomore, was crowned 
QueenAlalah XV at a coronation cer- 
emony held in the auditorium at

Having been informed of the honor 
merely 25 minutes prior to the cere- 
mony, the queen was robed in the 
royal gown of satin trimmed with 
rhinestones, and was presented a bou- 
quet of yellow crysanthemums, a gift 
from the city schools. 

She sat on a quilted satin-covered 
chair which had been placed on a sat- 
in-covered platform and was wheeled 
down the main aisle by two uniformed 
pages.

Garris, Marjorie Crabtree, Rosalee 
Jones and Betty Ann Pearson, and the

white costumes.

rliinestone crown trimmed with white 
pstors and her scepter. Gene then

"The Night Is Young" with Douglas 
McCall as soloist. The chorus also 
offered other selections for the cor- 
onation cremony while the high 
school orchestra, directed by August 
Trollman, provided music for the 
event. The senior high court dancers,

The third junior college social of 
the year was held Friday evening - in 
the auditorium gym following the 
football game. 

The first social held in September 
was a complete flop. Of course this 
was half-way to be expected when 
everybody was completely in the dark 
about knowing names and faces, and 
when the student body had not been 
organized. 

However when Pearson and her soc- 
ial committee were elected to take 
over the reins, it was quite a different 
story, as the Hallowe'en party proved. 
By this time the students had become 
better acquainted and more entertain- 
ment could be provided. Incidentally 
V/'alter Fesler deserves a good hand 
on his help in presiding over the pro- 
gressive and square dancing. 

Last Friday the juco joes and janes 
and their guests again gathered in the 
auditorium for a successful social. All 
of which goes to show that a lot of in- 
itiative and co-operation can go a long 
way in having a good time. 

We issue a vote of thanks to Betty 
Ann and her committee. We are look- 
ing forward to many more parties 
and socials during the '46-'47 college 
year.

Rev. Beatty Speaks 
At Recent Meeting 

Rev. Herbert Beatty of the First 
Baptist Church was guest speaker at 
the second meeting of the Junior Col- 
lege Christian Association held No- 
vember 4, at 7:00 p. m. in the junior 
college study hall. 

His informal talk was the second in 
a series given to aquaint the associa- 
tion with the ministers of the city. 

A short business meeting was con- 
ducted by president Gerald Fetterolf, 
and plans were made for a covered 
dish dinner to precede the next meet- 
ing on November 18 at 6:30 p. m. 

All junior college students who are 
interested in this association are in- 
vited to attend the dinner in order to 
get acquainted with the organization 
and its activities.

MEET MISS CO-ED— 

Blue eyes five' feet three and one- 
half inches tall, and a natural curl in 
her dark brown hair describes this 
sophomore. 

Miss Co-Ed's likes are basketball, 
roller skating, people from Newkirk, 
Okla, hamburgers before math class, 
making faces at her friends, and 
mathematics (because the class is so 
"dumb".) Foods is her favorite sub- 
ject. She especially dislikes cowboy 
songs and people v/ho swoon over 
Sinatra. 

This juco sophomore's pet peeve is 
conceited people who have no reason 
to be conceited. Yes, you've just been 
introduced to Mildred Freese! 

MEET MR. ED— 

It can truthfully be said "6 foot 2 
and eyes of blue" when speaking of 
this sophomore boy. He has black hair 
and weighs 175 lbs. 

He is taking a liberal art course 
(according to the enrollment cards) 
but he says his main interest in coll- 
ege is to graduate. 

Mr.Ed plays center on the Tiger 
squad, and comes from Shidler, Okla. 
Although his favorite activity is sleep 
and more sleep, he acclaims that he is 
"the best cook in the world". 

When asked about his favorite 

You've probably all guessed by now 
"Ingrid Bergman, of course", 
movie actress, he sighed and said 
who Mr. Ed is, but for the benefit of 
those who walk around the halls with 
their eves closed, he is none other 
than Walter Dalton. 

P.S. This was put in the paper over 
his protest, one of these timid ex- 
marines, you know. 



Bells!! 

Don't you think we should plant 
guards in the halls to protect the 
pretty female faculty? We heard that 

wolves have been following Miss Ives 
and we don't blame them!! 

Speaking of Miss Ives, she was real- 
ly tripping the light fantastic at the 
Hallowne'en social, (everyone was 
there except Kilroy and Smoe.) "Bunt 
Speer was also seen keeping time to 
the music. Why don't we do this more 
often ? 

Incidentally, Pearson and her sccial 
committee deserve a great big "A" 
for Attainment on the swell socials we 
have had this year. 

Question of the week: 

Who's the best cook in the Pratt 

family? We've heard claims on both 

sides!! 

Everyone received the shock of the 
century on Oct. 31, when they saw 
Robert H. Brady grab a girl and ca- 
reen around the dance floor.

Again; Down 
Pirates, 13-0 

After a first half scoreless tie, the 
potent juco Tigers cut loose with a 
pair of touchdowns in the final period 
to ramble over the strong defensive 
Independence Pirates 13 to 0, last 
Friday night at Curry Field. 

In the third quarter the Tigers got 
a break when guard Jim Hollenback 
covered a Pirate fumble which gave 
the Tigers the ball on the Independ- 
ence 42-yard line. 

From there the Tigers marched 
down the field to the Pirate 18-yard 
line where Earl Grinnell rifled a pass 
to end Bob Brady who pulled it down 
and raced on to tally the first touch- 
down of the game. 

The second Tiger score came in the 
final period which saw fullback, Bill 
Waltz and right halfback Roy Had- 
ley taking turns carrying the pigskin 
until they reached the Pirate's 10-yard 
line. Keith Hearne, reserve back, then 
raced over for the last touchdown. 

Cecil Larkin, playing a bang-up 
game at end, leaped high in the air 
and brought down GrinnelPs pass to 
score the game's only conversion, 

Inpendence was handica p p e d 
throughout the game due to the loss 
of two starting backs who were 
benched because of injuuies. This was 
the last home game of the season for 
the Tigers.

Outplaying a stubborn and hard 
fighting opponent, the Tigers battered 
out their fourth league win here Oct- 
ober 31 by beating the Dodge City 
Conks 14 to on a mud doused grid- 
iron. 

Quarterback Earl Grinnell and half- 
back Keith Hearne shared scoring 
honors for the Tigers with each push- 
ing across one counter. 

With the ball on the Conk's 5-yard 
line, the Arks tried, unsuccessfully, 

The conversion was complete when 
Grinnell passed to end Bud Chaplin. 

The Conks' main threat was Hanna, 
Dodge City's shifty Negro star, who 
made several nice runs and also turn- 
ed in a good defensive game. 

Because of the wet ball and a mud- 
dy field, the Tigers stuck to the 
ground throughout the game. The Ark 
second tonchdmvn was scored when 
halfback Keith Hearne drove over 
from the Conks' 15-yard line. Full- 
back George Ward plunged over for 
the extra point.

The Feminine Touch j 

by Rahn « 

Well, here I am again. Say, .we have 
really been busy in gym these days — 
playing volly ball — taking exercises — 
taking exercises. 

Some of the gals can really sling 
that volleyball around now. It goes 
places, everywhere from up in the bal- 
cony to way down the hall. 

From the looks of it. Miss Davis 
is going to make a track team out of 
us. We walk, trot and run around the 
gym floor until we feel like dropping 
in our tracks. It is good for us though 
(we keep telling ourselves). 

Roses, gardinias, and orchids to 
Betty Smith for being such a lovely 
Arkalalah Queen. She really looked 
ritzy. 

Miss Davis is getting grey hairs 
over those gym locks. Everytime we 
have gym, it never fails to bring two 
or three girls up to her office for help. 
Maybe we jurt need to learn the com- 
binations — huh, Garris ? 

Well, all you happy Republicans, 
and all you Democrats, I gotta quit

Tigers Travel 
To El Dorado 

The Tigers are expecting two of 
their toughest battles of the season 
when they meet the El Dorado Grizz- 
lies at El Dorado tomorrow night and 
the Fort Scott Grayhounds at Fort 
Scott the following week. 

The only loss the Grizzlies have 
suffered this year was a 19-0 defeat 
handed to them by Hutchinson. Their 
main threat is Lehman, who plays 
both quarterback and fullback posit- 
ions off the double-wing and also does 
the kicking and passing. 

The Grayhounds who have won two 
and tied one out of five league games- 
still have an impressive record. They 
beat Joplin 12-0" and Coffeyville de- 
feated Joplin 13-0. With that com- 
parison the Fort Scott eleven must 
have a fairly strong team. 

The Grayhounds sparkplug seems 
to be McKaffie who plays the safety 
spot on defense and plays fullback 
on offense. 

If the Tigers get by these two 
games and if Coffeyville should be 
handed a defeat, the local eleven will 
hold the conference title. 

Tonkawa Rallies 
In Last Quarter 

To Defeat Tigers 

The Tonkawa Mavericks rallied in 
the fourth period to down the Tigers 
12 to 6 in a hard fought battle on 
Tonkawa's field, October 25. 

A long received pass on the goal 
line in the lost quarter gave the Mave- 
ricks the winning touchdown. A dis- 
pute arose as to whether Roy Hadley 
was pushed in order for the pass to be 
received. 

The Tigers controlled the first half 
of the game scoring the first touch- 
down after marching 46 yards with 
running and a pair of passes from 
ciuarterback Earl Grinnell to end Bob 
Brady. Jim Hollenback's attempted 
kick for the extra point was blocked. 

An interception of a Tiger pass, 
from Charles Ward to Brady ,by Ol- 
son .centerfor the Mavericks, on the 
locals 24-yard line led to the tying- 
score. The kick by Young was wide 
bringing the score to a deadlock. 

In the final quarter the Tonkawa 
eleven took the lead scoring their 
second touchdown and neither team 
threatened after that. 

Flashy quarterback, Earl Grinnell 
having trouble with his bullet passes 
limited the Tigers to a ground game. 

Charles Ward displayed his remark- 
able running ability which will be of 
great assistance to the Tigers in clos- 
ing the season. 

This engagement was a non-league 
p"°me and the second defeat for the 
Tigers.

Famous Dee 

ea Diver lo 
Speak 

Captian Art Hook, famous sub- 
marine diver and deep sea explorer, 
will talk in an assembly at 10:45 a.m., 
Nov. 15, in the junior high auditorium. 

Cajjtain Hook's many adventures 
include battling an octopus for pos- 
session of a human body, recovering 
24 bodies from the oceans' bottom, 
and saving 12 people from drowning. 
He is a diver and a parachutist and 
has served in both world wars. 

The stories of how he grappled with 
deep sea monsters of strange and 
mysterious origin, how it feels to be 
walking along the bottom of an ocean, 
not able to see more than a foot ahead 
and feel the band of raw-hide clamps 
of an octopus around your neck and 
legs, will hold you on the edge of your 
seats during the whole talk. Captain 
Hook, after 25 years of diving, origin- 
ated the first Paratroop squad in the 
United States. 

Besides these thrilling stories, Cap- 
tain Hook is bringing with him 
a large number of oil paintings, each 
about four feet square, to show the 
kinds of plant and animal life that 
abound in Davy Jones locker. He will 
also bring his diving apparatus — hel- 
met, shoes, weights, life belt, knife, 
and diving dress. 

This adventure program is spon- 
sored by the Department of Lectures 
and Concert Artists at the University 
of Kansas.

Hospital Is Favored 
By A\any Students 

Despite the efforts of the city in 
their drive for the new hospital it was 
surprising to find many students that 
had no opinion. Those that had an o- 
pinion were very much in favor of the 
project. 

FRANCIE HEINZ: "I think it is 
worth the effort and expense, be- 
cause Ark City really needs one." 
EDWARD GALLE: "I'd be for it. I 
think that we should have a new 
hospital. After our calculus exam 
I need one." 
JIM LEDGERWOOD: "Now that I've 
sold my car, I believe very strongly 
that we don't need one." 
ALFONSO CAICEDO: "The town 
should have a new hospital because 
many of its present establishments 
are first rate and the town should 
keep up its record."

need it badly enough to go toex-

it's a good thing for sick people."

presented by members of the Artists 
Bureau, KMBC, at Kansas City, Mo. 

The high school chorus sang 
"Battle Hymn of the Republic" and 
"Donkey Serenade". The first selec-

World War II. 

Following the coronation ceremony 
and program, the Queen's Ball was 
held with music furnished by Bonner 
Ruff and his Noted Men. Approxi- 
mately 3,000 persons jammed the

tainment. 

Paraders are Drenched 

Both participants and spectators 
braved the steady showers Thursday 
afternoon to witness the Arkalalah 
parade. Floats which were the result 
of many week's work were ruined and 
band menbers were soaked. 

Some of the floats did not carry 
occupants as originally planned but 
Queen Alalah XV mounted her throne 
and got a big hand all along the route. 

A second dance was held in the 
auditorium Thursday evening.

Juco Vacated 
For Gobble 



Gobble Gobble Day (Thanksgiving 
to youze intellects) is just around the 
corner. Oh! Happy Holiday! Two days 
of school-less bliss. Two days which 
must be celebrated, and here are a 
few ways some of the B. U. slaves 
are going to celebrate. 

"I'm" going to cook somebody's 
goose", was the reply from Betty 
Blackburn Pratt when asked what 
she was going to do on Thanksgiving. 
While hubby Ned said, "I'm not going 
anywhere, I just go for the turkey." 
"Be it ever so humble, there's no 
place like home". Clara Barnes, Neil 
Bell, Norman Byers, Catherine Carter, 
Bob Fencil, Bob Iman, Janet Brown, 
June Work, Betty Ousley, Bill 
Ramsey, and Jack Stahl , have de- 
cided they are going to stay at home 
and eat turkey and pumpkin pie in 
their own dining rooms. 

Cecil Lsirkin, Chuck Hutchinson, 
Bill Smith, Bob Parker, Jack Staf- 
ford, Bud Chaplin, Bud Howard, 
Meryln Hicks, Coy Squyres, Sonny 
Selan, and Don Duncan are going to 
act like Rip Van Winkle. They are 
going to catch up on all the sleep 
they have lost from staying up late 
at night tc study. 

Betty Jo Floyd takes biology 
seriously, she said she was going to 
spend Thanksgiving disecting not 
frogs but a turkey (bite by bite.) 

Betty Ann Pearson whispered that 
-she wouldn't be "Just A Sittin' and 
A Rockin'." 

Dorothy Wentworth, Ann McAdam, 
Rose Ann Wolfe, Barbara Garris, and 
Marjorie Crabtree are going to act 
like 'turkeys, just to feel the spirit of 
the day. So when you see them just 
say "Gobble" they will know what 
you mean. 

A few lucky Jucos are goingto 
make excursions from our fair 
metropolis. Cecil Hicks, Robert Leib- 
forth, and Kermit Sandefur are Minn- 
esota bound. Harold Blair is heading 
for Burden, Kansas. Phyllis Conrad 
will spend Thanksgiving in Bixby, 
Oklahoma. (Probably many Jucos will 
be seen leaving the city via the south 
highway.) 

Doris Deets is going to Garden City 
to visit friends and relatives.

officer. Following the processional 
and the singing of "Holy, Holy, Holy" 
by the chorus, the invocation was giv- 
en by Lael Smith. The group then 
sang the hymn, "Come All Ye Thank- 
ful People Come." 

Melba Thompson led the devotion- 
als and the chorus sang the anthem, 
"We Gather Together." Gene Bell

talk on "A Dynamic Thanksgiving." 
After the chorus had sung "The 
Lord's Prayer", Peggy Sullivan gave 
a short talk on the paeon of a new 
democracy, "America, the Beautiful" 
The student body then joined in the 
singing of that song. 

The benediction was pronounced by 
John Skinner.

was under the direction of C. L. Hin- 
chee, included Ethel Harvey, Mary 
Kay Burkarth, Rosalee Jones, Wilma

The 1946-'47 gridiron season is over 
and we extend a vote of thanks and 
appreciation to our team and our 
coach who have made the season 
successful and each game an exciting 
one. 

The Tiger team, under the coaching 
of Bunt Speer, made a fine showing 
for themselves and A. C. J. C. after 
four-year absence of juco football. 
We feel that with Speer's initiative 
and the team's cooperation we will 
have an equally successful basketball 
squad. 

Regardless of the change from 
football to basketball there should 
not be one in the school spirit of the 
students. As we journeyed to Coffey- 
ville for the first game, suffered a 
defeat, and arrived home at 5 a. m. a 
majority of the student body losttheir 
pep and enthusiasm. However it re- 
turned on a large scale as the Bengals 
started rolling up victories. 

There is a natural tendency for 
spectators to let up on their yelling 
and cheering when the basketball sea- 
son starts. But this tendency should 
be overcome. Let's back our basket- 
ball squad as enthusiastically as we 
did the football team.

Students Suggest 
Many Treatments 
For John Lewis 

Several students of A.C.J.C. were 
recently asked what should be done 
to John L. Lewis. Following are some 
of the more presentable answers that 
were received. 

Cecil Hicks- "Slice him in two, heck 
I could do better than he does." 
Betty Mae Hughett- "I don't know 
nothing." 

Nolan Wineinger- "Throw the bum 
out." 

Doris Deets — "Considering all the 
trouble he has caused I believe he 
should be quietly exterminated." 
Mary Kay (Witchie) Burkhart— "I 
really don't care what is done with 
John L. Lewis." 
Danny Stark — "I suggest letting him 



Basement Buzz 

The first new snow was seen from 
the windows of B. U. on Nov. 25 at a- 
bout 8:40 a. m. 

The snow was a welcome sight to 
most of the students, even though it 
melted as it hit the ground. 

Ice formed on the windshields and 
roads, and made traveling rather haz- 
ardous. The wind has turned to the 

north, and brrrrrr Winter is here. 



The first casualty reported due 
to icy sidewalks was Ann Mc- 
Adam. It seems that her feet 
were suddenly light and she 
mopped up about three square 
feet of cement walk. She suffered 
minor bruises and a hurt pride. 

O 

The early bird of the season is truly 
John Skinner. He handed in his med- 
ieval history term paper on Monday. 
A really forsighted individual!

To prove the old adage that "every- 
one makes mistakes", ask our student 
council president, Gene Bell, just 
which team he was yelling for at the 
El Dorado football game. He insists 
it was a case of "mistaken identity".

MEET MISS CO-ED— 

"Lovely to look at and delightful to 
know", is the Miss of the week. Tell 
you more? About 65 inches tall, blue 
eyes, blonde hair and ummmm! 

She says the song "I'll Be Seeing 
You," gives her goose-pimples. She 
also puts Dick Haymes in the goose- 
pimple class. 

Fried chicken and French fries are

Supper And Meeting 
Held by J.C.C.A. 

A covered dish supper was the 
feature of the Junior College Christ- 
ian Association meeting that was held 
on Nov. 18 in the junior college study 
hall. About 25 members and guests 
were present. 

The program for the evening con- 
sisted of a song "The Lords' Prayer" 
sang by Mildred Wagner, and accom- 
panied by Betty Smith. Lloyd Simp- 
kins gave the scripture reading, and 
a discussion on prayer was led by 
Gene Bell, La Vonne Young and Erma

The girls of the association were 
in charge of the food arrangement, 
and the beautiful centerpiece of 
chrysanthemums was made by Nadine 
Johnson. 



Lan Quaere Clubs 



The first part of the meeting of the 
German club was held in the senior 
high music room on Nov. 13. After 
singing several German songs, the 
group went to the college club room 
where John Bartleson presided at the 
business session. German games were 
played and refreshments were served 
by Miss Anne Hawley. 

Other officers of the club are Mar- 
jorie Crabtree, vice-president; and 
Max Gribble, secretary. 



The girl members of the French 
Club appeared at their regular meet- 
ing, which was held in the club room 
on Nov. 20, in hand made crepe paper 
French provincial hats. The hats were 
judged by the boys and a prize award-

Defeat Places 
Tigers Third 
In Conference 



The Tigers dropped to third place 
in the Kansas Juco College Confer- 
ence as the Fort Scott Greyhounds 
staged a fourth period rally to down 
the Bengals 19 to 13 at Fort Scott 
last Friday night in the upset of the 
season. 

With score tied 13-all in the fourth 
period, Mahaffie, Greyhound star, 
intercepted a Tiger pass intended for 
end Bob Brady and raced 60 yards 
down the sideline to score the winning 
touchdown for the Greyhounds with- 
out a Tiger laying a hand on him. 

The Tigers scored all 13 points by 
using the air route. The Arks first 
score came in the first period with 
Halfback, Roy Hadley, taking a 20- 
yard pass from Grinnell, and racing 
it across from the two-yard line. 
Grinnell passed to end Bud Chaplin 
for the extra point. Fullback Walt 
Mathiasmeier set up the second touch- 
down when he intercepted a Grey- 
hound pass and drove it back 62 yards 
before Mahaffie, Greyhound back, 
overtook him from the rear. With the 
ball on the 20-yard line Grinnell 
faded back and hit Bob Brady in the 
end zone for the Tigers last score. 

Except for the one touchdown the 
Greyhounds scored in the second 
period, the Greyhounds scored both of 
their winning touchdowns via air in 
the fourth period with the latter be- 
ing an intercepted pass.

Greetings, and a Happy Thanks- 
giving to you. Say, these vacations 
are wonderful aren't they? I guess 
maybe they are getting the best of 
me, the other day I "plum" forgot to 
go to chorus class, I was an hour be- 
hind time all day of course all of this 
is accredited to a flat tire, not my 
ignorance! 

We are really getting down to brass 
tacks in gym these days, we've been 
practicing for the volleyball tourna- 
ments. Oh exertion! That ball is real- 
ly s'ippery, it seems to hit the floor 
more limes that it hits our hands. 
Garris can really hit it with her legs 
though, maybe the rules ought to be 
changed. We ARE improving our 
game though, we like to think. 

Well, I gotta run now. don't eat too 
much turkey! 

P. S. Volleyball teams have been 
chosen from the Juco class. The soph- 
omore captain is Beulah Marshall, 
and the freshman captain is Ethel

Coach "Bunt" Speer showed a re- 
markable record for his first year 
with the Tigers, as he guided the 
Arks through the Kansas Juco Con- 
ference to lose only two out of eight 
games. 



If an all-star team were to be sel- 
ected, the Tigers would surely have 
their share of players on the team. 
Not to be overlooked would be Earl 
Grinnell, fleet footed quarterback 
whose passing, running and kicking 
would be an asset to any team; Bob 
Brady, husky end; and Raymond Fan- 
ning, strong tackle of the Tigers. 



The Coffeyville Red Ravens won 
the conference title crown by defeat- 
ing the Independence Pirates 13 to 6 
on their home field.

cepted the invitation of the Wigwam

Tigers Meet 
St. Johns in 
Cage Opener 

With the closing of the football 
season, Coach "Bunt" Speer has turn- 
ed his attention to basketball. The 
Tigers will play host to the St. Johns 
College of Winfield here December '4. 
Since the Johnnies have no football 
schedule, they have been practicing 
basketball since the beginning of the 
fall term and should be in excellent 
shape for their game against the 
Tigers. 

The Tigers will have only about 
five practices together before their 
first game. Coach "Bunt" Speer has 
a squad of 16, not including the foot- 
ball boys, from which to choose his 
starting five. The Tigers have five 
returning lettermen who are Willis 
Shelhamer, Jim Ledgerwood, Byron 
Stiles, Earl Grinnell, and Oscar 
Thomas. The Tigers took fourth place 
in the state tournament last year and 
are looking forward to a higher pos- 
ition this year.

El Dorado 
Grizzlies 13 to O 

The powerful Arkansas City Tigers 
handed the El Dorado Grizzlies their 
second loss of the season by defeating 
them 13 to on the Grizzles home 
field, November 15. 

Earl Grinnell, triple- threat quart- 
erback and Bob Brady, husky right 
end for the Tigers, splurging in true 
championship form, gave the Grizz- 
lies one headache after another, they 
displayed their superb passing com- 
bination throughout the game. 

Grinnell set up the first touchdown 
by flipping a 36-yard pass and then 
running the pigskin to the three yard 
line where he took it over two plays 
later. The Tigers converted with Grin- 
nell passing to Brady in the end zone. 
The Arks second counter came in the 
third period. It was scored similar to 
the first with Grinnell passing to 
Brady and running it to the three 
yard line, where this time Fullback 
Charlie Ward plunged over for the 
touchdown. 

El Dorado was completely outplay- 
ed in all departments with the stout 
Tigers holding the Grizzlies to only 
short gains through the middle.

Many Possibilities 
Offered in Field 
Of Printing 

One of the most important yet the 
most unrecognized class in the school 
is the printing class. Through the 
combined efforts of the instructor, F. 
D. Modlin and his student apprentices 
almost all the printing matter used 
by the junior college and the high 
school is set up and printed. 

The equipment though obsolete and 
worn, still continues to serve the stu- 
dents and the school. At present the 
print shop is equipped with two plat- 
en presses, one linotype and a Miehle 
cylinder press. 

The print shop though mainly con- 
sisting of high school students has 
many openings for college students, 
both girls and boys, who are inter- 
ested in finding out what goes on be- 
hind the printed page. At present 
there are only five college boys tak- 
ing printing. They are Lyle Crabtree, 
Charles Belt, Cecil Hicks, Nolan Win- 
einger, and Robin Leibforth. 

As a career there is none that can 
rival printing so far as security and 
working conditions are concerned. 
Printing is a large field. Besides lin- 
otype operators there are compositors, 
proofreaders, makeup men, stinemen 
and many others. A printer must have 
a good background of general educa- 
tion, patience, skill and a large vocab- 
ulary. 

So far there has been only one girl 
who has braved the "wolves" of the 
basement and taken up printing. Have 
we no would be feminine printers in 
the school?

Old Grads 
To Gather for 
Year's Confab 

"Do you remember—" "Say, when 
I was here — " "Boy, did we have fun" 
these old and familiar phrases will 
flow freely as the tall tale tellers of 
by-gone classe gather again in the 
Tiger halls, and the old grads of B. U. 
gather to look over the new and hope- 
ful ones at the annual alumni tea and 
reception December 18. 

The Tea is scheduled to be held on 
December 18 from 7:00 until 10:00 
p. m. With so many service men re- 
turned, a large crowd is expected. 
According to Miss Courtright, these 
teas were started in 1944, and have 
been an annual affair ever since. 

The social committee under the 
chairmanship of Betty Pearson, is in 
charge of the arrangements. Miss 
Anne Hawley is the faculty advisor 
for this committee. 

On the d/ecoration committee is 
Iris Rahn and Phil Smith, chairman, 
Dan Stark, Dick Kelley, La Vonne 
Young, Lenna Payton, Phyllis Con- 
rad, and Rosemary W;arren. The 
Foods Committee is made up of Bec- 
ky Rine, chairman, Diane Danley 
Betty Jones, and E. J. Gardenhire. 

The hostesses and hosts that will

Should Be SpA&ad 

Remember when we were in high 
school and every Christmas we made 
contributions toward baskets for shut- 
ins and needy families ? 

In 1946 with the war over and most 
of the veterans returned, we have 
much for which to be thankful and 
this courtesy should be resinstated. 
We are so elat dwehit our own happin- 
ess which surrounds us every day that 
we fail to remember those who are 
not so fortunate. 

The junior college students should 
take heed of this situation and make 
arrangements for a basket of food and 
several gifts to be sent to a needy 
family this Christmas.

Jucos Ask for Cars 
Sn Letters to Santa 

Only 10 more shopping days until 
Christmas and Jucos are beginning 
to express desires for numerous items 
they'd like Santa to leave under their 
tree. Automobiles and "beaus" pre- 
vail in the choices. Here are a few 
specific quotations: 

DOROTHY WENT WORTH: "A big, 
handsome man that's easy to get a- 
long with." $ 

"DOUG" McCall: " An automobile! ! 
I don't care what it's like just so it 
has four wheels and will run!!" 
DIANE DANLEY: "A man. .wait . . 
you'd better make it a handsome man 
I don't want just any old thing! !" 
ROY HADLEY: "A great big 1946 
Buick convertible." 

WILMA TANQUARY: "Well, I'd 
rather Robin got a car for Christmas 
than anything else. That would be a 
better present for me." 
ELWOOD KELLER: I'd like to have 
a girl like 'Little Red Riding Hood' 
in the 'Wolf shows! ! ! !" 
JACK RINE: "A big black sleek 
Buick .... that runs! ! ! 
BEULAH MARSHALL: "A million 
dollars. . . . trTat's better than a man 
any old time!"

Men are so unsettled, 

Here, there, everwhere, 

They never seem to give a care, 

They never know just what to do, 

Men remind me of a kangaroo!

Quip of the week: — 

Chuck Hutchinson to Melba Thomp- 
son (looking at the names in a foot- 
ball write-up): "Whatcha Larkin 
for? hyak, hyak." 



We have the answer to the 
clothes problem for all you girls. 
Just go to your grandmother. The 
other night Gairis was dressed 
in a dream of a black dress. When 
complimented on it, she replied, 
"Thanks, it's mv grandmother's." 



The Marjorie Nugen solves this 
problem another way. She cuts the 
top out of flour sacks and calls them 
skirts. 



Daymond McVay said the last issue 
of the Tiger Tales was "no good". He 
couldn't find his name in it any place. 
So in order to make this issue good 
we offer Daymond McVay, Daymond 
McVay, Daymond McVay, and in case 
we didn't mention it before, Daymond 
McVay. 



If at first you don't succeed, 
try, try, try again. Ask Ernie 
Tayton, he knows. 

O 

Guess what? Phyllis Conrad and 
Eddie Sanabria have discovered that 
they are very distant cousins. 



Lyle Crabtree's theme song is 
"Take It Easy." Perfect fit, don't you 
think ? 

O 

Several of the boys have asked for 
their name in the paper and want a 
word of thanks for their independent

Tigers Down 
Pratt 33-22 

The Tigers opened their cage con- 
ference by downing the Beavers with 
a 33-22 victory coming from behind 
in the last half, December 6 at Pratt. 

The Beavers controlled the first 
half of the game and led the Tigers 
14-9 at the half-time. Jim Turner and 
Earl Grinell had trouble hitting and 
the game advanced compartively slow 
the first half. 

The Tigers, led by Jim Ledgerwood, 
center, pulled away in the last half 
and came through with an easy vic- 
tory. Ledgerwood was high man for 
Ark City with 11 points. 

It was the first western division 
and only league game on record. Mor- 
ieoni and Ellis refereed.

TIGER CLAWS 

Oscar Thomas 

Congratulations to quarterback 
Earl Grinnell and end Bob Brady, the 
Tigers' brilliant passing combination, 
who were chosen almost unanimously 
to the All-Juco Conference squad in a 
recent survey by the leading sports 
writers and coaches of the state. 



Congratulations also to Jim Hollen- 
back, hard-hitting Tiger guard who 
was named to the second all-league 
team. 



While on the subject of football, the 
Cameron Aggies of Lawton, Oklaho- 
ma defeated the Coffeyville Red Rav- 
ens, Kansas champions, 26 to 13 in 
the first annual "Papoose Bowl" foot- 
ball game played at Oklahoma City 
last Saturday. It was the first loss in 
36 starts under Coach Demp Cannon, 
in a string extending back to 1940. 

The Tiger cagers got off to a flying 
start in league play last Friday as 
they downed Pratt 33 to 22. The 
players said, "If we missed one shot, 
we missed a hundred." The boys must 
have really been playing to beat 
Pratt because their team was much 
taller than the Arks but the boys 
were just a little too fast for them. 

From an article in the Coffeyville 
"College. Dial" it is stated that the 
basketball players there feel a little 
slighted. In football they had three 
coaches and football stars were re- 
cruited from the surrounding states 
but in basketball the school officials 
had not even selected a coach as late 
in the season as November. The ar- 
ticle stated that the gloomy outlook 
does not result from the fact that 
there is no talent in the school, but 
from the fact that the college admin- 
istration and athletic heads just don't 
think of basketball as they do foot- 
ball.

Tigers Battle 
Coffeyville 
Here Friday 

The Tiger cagers will meet the 
Coffeyville Red Ravens here tomor- 
row night in a non-league tilt. 

Coffeyville is reported as having 
plenty of material with at least ten 
war veterans returning, who have 
played on the first five in high school, 
in the years before the war. 

However, Coffeyville has had little 
time to get their cage quintet in top 
shape because their football season 
closed just last Saturday. 

On the other hand the Tigers have 
already two games behind them and 
have been working hard all week pre- 
paring for their battle against the 
tough Coffeyville five. 

Next week the Tigers will have a 
tough assignment, as they meet Cha- 
nute here Thursday night and Friday 
they travel to Hutchinson to meet the 
Blue Dragons. 

The Chanute Panthers lost their 
opening game to the El Dorado Grizz- 
lies 51 to 24. 

Hutchinson, who always boosts a 
strong basketball squad is expected 
to be as good as ever. Hubbard, who 
was a leading scorer in the Ark Val- 
ley in '42 and '43 should be the main 
cog in the Hutchinson wheel of at- 
tack. 

After next week's games the Tigers 
will have a three-week vacation 
through the Christmas holidays be- 
fore they play their next game.

Happy Christmas and Merry New 
Year everyone! 

Say, wasn't last Thursday a beaut- 
iful day? I guess Miss Davis thought 
so too, because she let us go on a hike 
instead of playing volley ball. Golly, 
it was wonderful, the sun was shining 
and the grass was green, and the city 
drrnu didn't look so bad in our view 
after all. 

Tr> srym the other day. Miss Davis 
had four of us girls jump rope, more 
f'm. It rerpinds us of our younger 
davs doesn't if Sroitty? The only 
t'^ing — we used to be able to do it 
without any ill effects. I guess maybe 
we are just getting old and decrepit. 

Our volley ball teams are coming 
along just ritzy now, there is really 
competition in every game. So far the 
+ h° frames have almost broken even. 
I guess the freshmen are about as 
good as the sophomores after all, in 
gvm, that is. 

Well, T GOTTA go after thit, so 
here's wi^inic you a VERY MERRY 
CHRISTMAS to you.

Debate Team 
Goes to Pratt 

The junior college debate team 
traveled to Pratt with the basketball 
team last Friday to meet with the 
Pratt debate team, where they held a 
non-decision discussion. 

Those making the journey were 
Charles Early, George McCullough, 
Norman Byres, Raymond Tipton, and 
A. E. Maag, instructor. 

This same group were guests at the 
Kiwanis club on December 4. Norman 
Byres presented the negative side, 
while George McCullough gave the 
affirmative side of the debate. Their 
topic was, "Resolved — That labor 
should be given a share in the man- 
agement of industry." This was also 
a non-decision affair — it was just for 
practice.

minutes and the roll call and the 
scripture reading was given by Ed-

Students Awaiting 
Christmas Holidays 

Christmas comes but once a year, 
Aren't you glad it's here 

Counting the days till Christmas 
has been the favorite pastime in the 
classrooms. The teachers have been 
patiently tolerating the annual glan- 
cing at the calendar, mumbling of 
numbers, and counting on the fingers, 
that has been done by the majority 
of stundents. 

It is amazing how many Sherlock 
Holmes have developed. All the guys 
are giving their gal-pals the third 
degree about what they want from 
Santa. While in turn the gals are a 
little more cagy with remarks like 
"Don't you just love yellow sweaters." 

The city library will probably be a 
well populated place during the holi- 
days as most students have postponed 
writing their term papers. 

Bye for this year, 

See you next year.

was centered with a mirror encircled 
with green leaves and red berries. A 
snowball made from tinfoil was placed 
on the mirror which was flanked by 
three red candles in crystal holders. 

The study hall, which served as a 
room for visiting and dancing, was 
decorated with a lighted Christmas 
tree and a false ceiling of red and 
green. Snowflakes were painted on the 
windows by Iris Rahn. The hall was 
decorated with green and red ribbon 
bows and evergreen boughs. 

Betty Ann Pearson, social chair- 
man, with Miss Anne Hawley as fac- 
ulty advisor, was in charge of the an- 
nual affair. Betty Ann, Betty Smith, 
Wilma Tanquary, Doug McCall, Gene 
Bell and Lloyd Simpkins greeted the

A capacity crowd was present at 
the fourteenth annual performance of 
the "Messiah" given in the auditorium 
December 15. 

John Tufts, former resident of Ark- 
ansas City who is now studying in St. 
Louis, added to the success of the 
school's Christmas gift to the com- 
munity by his magnificient interpret- 
ation of the tenor solos. 

Other soloists were Marjorie Crab- 
tree, junior college sophomore, and 
Mrs Dick Curtis, talented local music- 
ian, soprano; Mrs. Charles Heilman, 
from El Dorado, contralto; and Stan- 
ley Mitchell, Witchita University 
student, bass. 

The chorus this year under direc- 
tion of Charles Hinchee included app- 
roximately 280 voices and was a great 
improvement over previous years be- 
cause the bass and tenor sections were 
heavier and gave a better foundation 
for the chorus.

cMdl $%. College 

A week from today we will be 
struggling through final exams and 
two weeks from now the second 
semester will be getting into full 
swing. Yes the seventeenth week of 
school is drawing to a close and the 
majority of the students have pre- 
enrolled for the second semester. 

Many of us have had to change our 
schedules when faced with the state- 
ment "I'm sorry but we're not offer- 
ing that course this semester— teacher 
shortage you know." That upsets our 
apple cart and we have to substitute 
another course for the one that isn't 
being offered. 

Of course this gets under our skin 
at first and we can't possibly under- 
stand why a wider range of subjects 
can't be taught, but after all, leave us 
face it, an instructor can only teach 
so many courses a day or week. 
Schools and colleges all over the 
country are crowded and the teacher 
shortages is critical. Therefore we 
should take it with a smile when we 
are told that a certain course is not 
being offered, change our subject and 
hope for better times to come.

Concession Stand 
Help Is Needed 

Have you been chosen as a lucky 
selectee ? The government has post- 
poned all drafts but — the student 
council is still going strong, yes 
indeed! 

Due to the fact that pep club hasn't 
been organized this year the student 
council has taken over the concession 
stand at all the J. C. games. They are 
giving everyone the opportunity of a 
lifetime to help the school. 

Now, if any of you gals and guys 
feel you have been slighted and want 
to help you can tell the student coun- 
cil and they will really fix you up for 
any Friday night. 

Watch the bulletin board for your 
lucky night.

THE BASEMENT BUZ] 



-acjc- 



Greetings and salutations! This de- 
partment is slowly getting back on its 
feet again after surviving the Christ- 
mas and New Year holidays and 
celebrations. 

From what we've heard Santa 
was pretty good to everybody last 
year (December that is) and a lot 
of requests for certain gifts were 
cheerfully filled. 

Many juco joes and janes are seen 
flashing their new sport sweaters 
they pulled out of their stockings but 
the brightest flash of all is coming 
from the third finger left hand of 
Erma Marshall. (In case you aren't 
up on your love affairs it was gvien 
to her by Gene Bell.) Congrats Gene 
and Erma and P. Martin Johnson has 
confided that he will dance at your 
wedding for a small fee. 

We hear by way of the grape- 
vine that George Ward was both 
spellbound and snowbound down 
Texas way during the vacation 
but he's still heard singing "That's 
what I like about the South". In- 
cidently that snow storm came the 
day after he left what a coin- 
cidence!! And what a lucky gal! 

ORCHIDS TO: 

Marjorie Crabtree and the other 
Messiah solists. 

The social committee for a lovely 
Christmas tea and reception. 

Santa Claus for being so wonderful 
to us this year. 

Old man weather for bringing us 
lots of snow. 

The janitors for seeing that the 



building is heated. 

ONIONS TO: 

Whoever invented the "term paper". 

Lifeless students who won't yell at 
the basketball games. 

The idea of having three-hour final 
exams. 

Alan Jacobson recently received an 
urgent call from his wife. Frantically 
she told him that there had been a 
fire in the house. "We lost half of our 
kitchen equipment" she moaned. "Is 
that a fact", he exclaimed, "which 
was it — the can opener or the cork- 
screw ? " 

don't believe we have congratu- 
lated Alan on his recent marriage to 
Louise Watson and also brought to 
cur attention is the engagement of 
Lyle Crabtree and Betty Sanderson. 
My but cupid is a busy little person! 

(The Printers are waiting for those 
cigars, Lyle)! ! ! ! 

Wi.en asked why he wasn't using 
his car Monday, Jack Rine solemnly 
exclaimed, "Ask Marjorie". So "ask 
Marjorie" we did and it seems that 
while following her directions she and 
Jack went into a ditch. Well, accidents 
will happen. 

Joke of the week: 

Papa Gnu: Well, mamma, how did the 
children behave today ? 

Mamma Gnu: I've got good gnus to- 
night. 

Alright— we'll leave on that one and 
study for those final exams. See you 
next time if we survive. 



Many New Years 
Resolutions Made 

"Now is the time when all good 
people" — — yes, that's right, this 
is the time of year for everyone to 
start thinking of that "new leaf" they 
are going to turn over. Life is just 
an open book and once a year we turn 
over a new leaf just to turn over a new 
one next year. 

Here is what a few of the locals 

have to say about the effect Baby 

New Year had on them: 

ROY HADLEY: "To buckle down on 

school work, and have more fun in 

1947, also I am determined to get 

an automobile." 

KEITH HEARNE: "Make better 

grades the second semester." 
CATHERINE CARTER: "I was go- 
ing to study hard but since Iv'e 
been to class — Past Tense." 
NORMAN BYERS: "Study Less." 
CHARLES EARLY: "I didn't make 
any, then I won't have to break 
any." 
ROSE WATSON: "Resolved to stay 



home for thirty days and be a good 
kid, also to bury that knife that 
cuts throats." 

JAMES MILLER: "I'll study a bit 
harder." 

DIANE DANLEY: "I have sworn, I 
have absolutely sworn that I'm go- 
ing to quit swearing because I'm 
just getting fouler and fouler in 
my language." 

JAMES HOLLENBACK: "To leave 
women alone until I win more gin 
rummy games." 

E. J. GARDENHIRE: "Gee, am I go- 
ing to reform myself. I'm going to 
stay home more, study more, and a 
lot mores, also some lessons."

Wilde Chooses Cover Girl 

Cornell Wilde, well known actor for 
20th Century Fox, made the final se- 
lection of the winner of the annual

Tigers Down 
Chanute by 

31-23 Score 



The Tigers fought their way 
through to a 31-23 triumph over Cha- 
nute Junior College in a rough game 
here December 19. 

With 36 personal fouls being called 
the game advanced slowly with the 
Tigers holding the lead from the be- 
ginning. 

The Bengals grabbed an early 6-0 
lead with a long shot by Bud Chaplin, 
free shots by Earl Grinnell and Chap- 
lin and a goal by Jim Turner. 

At the half-time the Tigers led by 
the score of 17 to 9. The Chanute quin- 
tet came back in the second half to 
bring the score to 24-18 but were un- 
able to make sufficient points to ever 
lead the locals. 

Grinnell held the scoring honors 
with nine points. 

Coach Spcer put 14 men into action 
as did the Black Panthers and every 
man suited up played during the 
game.

Tigers Nosed Out 
By Ravens, 32-3! 

After playing a nip and tuck game 
all the way, the Coffeyville Red Ra- 
vens took advantage of a wild tiger 
pass in the final minute of play to 
edge out the Bengals by a score of 32 
to 31 here on the home court Decem- 
ber 13. 

With only thirty seconds left to 
play, Tangier, reserve forward for the 
Ravens, intercepted a bad Tiger pass 
and dribbled down the court all alone 
to score the winning basket. 

The score was close throughout the 
game. In the first period, the Ravens 
obtained an early lead, but the Tigers 
hurried to even the score 13 all at the 
half. 

In the second half the Tigers led 
the Ravens until the last few minutes 
of play. Then the Ravens finally came 
to life and scored three quick baskets 
to win. 

Malcolm Smith and Earl Grinnell 
turned in exceptionally fine play 
throughout the game for the Tigers 
with their aggressiveness and their 
ability to take the rebound away from 
the taller Raven players. 

Wade, Coffeyville forward was high 
scorer for the evening with ten points. 
Bud Chaplin was high for the Tigers 
with eight points.

Howland Helps in 
Co-op Organized by 
Kansas State Vets 

In Manhattan veterans attending 
Kansas State College have found out 
that the $90 a month government all- 
owance isn't enough with todays in- 
flationary prices to care for them- 
selves and their wives. The veterans 
decided to find some way to combat 
their decreasing bankroll. 

How to work out a satisfactory plan 
for saving was the main problem fac- 
ing the students. Some wanted to 
form pools and buy canned goods in 
case lots while others wanted the Ar- 
my to open a branch commissary near 
the campus for veteran use. During 
the discussions someone suggested the 
veterans establish their own commis- 
sary and this led to the co-operative 
field. 

Robert Howland who was graduated 
from the local high school in 1943 
and attended junior college, is treasu- 
rer of the organization. Howland and 
his wife, the former Betty Anna Mill- 
er, now reside in Manhattan. 

Among the advocates of the com- 
missary plan was Lloyd Nothem, stu- 
dent in mechanical engineering. Noth- 
ern talked so much about the idea that 
he found himself in charge of a com- 
mittee with instructions to explore the 
possibilities and report back. 

The committee visited wholesale 
houses in Topeka, Witchita and Kan- 
sas City where the members explored 
the books and examined the field of 
wholesale supply. Wholesalers gladly 
helped them map out needs for a co- 
operative retail store and helped them 
figure costs and capital needs. 

The economic department of the 
school made an analysis of successful 
co-operative stores and pointed out 
that Kansas has certain co-operation 
laws that needed to be followed. A 
Topeka lawyer was hired to steer 
them through the maze of laws. 

The basis laid, a system of stock 
selling was set up. They issued 2,000 
shares of stock at $10 to be sold to 
veterans and faculty members only. 

The committee purchased a building 
across the campus and set the final 
stage for their enterprise. Despite 
futile attempts of local merchants to 
discourage them they went ahead. 

On opening day 732 wives of vet- 
erans purchased $1,341 worth of food- 
stuffs. The efforts of the students 
hdd been met with satisfactory sucess. 

These go-getting veterans and their 
co-operative idea will no doubt be the 
foundation for many more exchanges 
to be set up at other colleges through- 
out the country.

1 igers Travel 
West Friday 

Although the Tigers have not 
played a game for three weeks they 
have been practicing hard during the 
Christmas holidays getting ready for 
their westward journey. The Tigers 
will go to Dodge City Friday to meet 
the Dodge City Jucos and on the fol- 
lowing night they will go still farther 
west and meet Garden City. Both of 
these are league games and the Tigers 
want to tuck both victories under their 
belt before returning. Dodge City is 
the stronger of the two teams but 
Garden City also is expected to be 
plenty tough. Garden City and the 
Tigers comparative strength against 
Pratt would give Garden City a 
slight edge. The Tigers beat Pratt 33 
to 22 and Garden City won 56 to 37. 

Coach "Bunt" Speer is taking a

Greetings! Well, how did you enjoy 
yourself over the vacation ? From the 
gi-oans that I have heard up and down 
the hall, I judge you had a pretty row- 
dy time. 

The volleyball tournaments are fin- 
ally over! Of course the outcome was 
not so good for the college teams, but 
here they are anyhow. The first place 
went to the high school juniors and 
h.s. sophomores, who tied. Running 
second were the college sophomores 
while the college freshmen and the h.s. 
seniors tied for the basement. 

Orchids to the college sophomores 
for downing the college freshmen, it 
was a tough and close game, but — 

Say, how did you like those tests 
that Miss Davis put us to ? They were 
really rugged, eh, what? Walking up 
and down stairs is usually not so bad, 
but, don't you just hate to do it with 
about twenty looking at you, groan. 

Well, I gotta quit for now and go ice 

skating again, oh, my aching 

(self, that is)

This freshman claims that "all 
human being are stupids". Just where 
he aquired this outlook on the human 
remains a mystery. (Perhaps that is 
why he is studing to be a doctor of 
psychoanalysis. 

His pet peeve is studying and his 
favorite pastimes include loafing and 
talking. "The Old Lamplighter" tops 
his list of songs while Tex Beneke 
rates as his number one band. 

We's tell you that he is 5'7" tall, 
weighs 138 pounds, has brown hair 
and blue eyes, but then you'd know 
that he is Del Andrew Allen.

ners. 

"The Terrible Charge Against Jeff 
Potters", a reading, was given by 
Charles Whittenborn. Gene Bell, presi- 
dent, was presiding officer during the 
evening. Anecdotes written on the 
place cards read and the group sang

Students Urged to 



'sei 



looks 



To Book Exchange 

Don't throw that aged Chemistry 
book away, hold on to that history 
book, even if it is slightly damaged. 
Take a little tape, patch them up a 
bit and run down to the office where 
Dean Galle has announced that there 
will be a book exchange set up. 

Useable first semester books may 
be taken to the office where they can 
be sold for a nominal fee to any stu- 
dent who wishes to save some money 
by not purchasing new books. 

It would be duly appreciated by all 
concerned if all pictures, answers and 
formulas would be left in the margins 
of the pages to amuse the students 
during long and uninteresting lec- 
tures. (In A.C.J.C? ? ? ) 

Books that are to be used in junior 
college during the second semester 
include the following: 

"Accounting Principles" by McKin- 
sey-Noble; "College Algebra" by Hart 
— revised edition; "Differential and 
Integral Calculus" by Love; "Intro- 
duction to College Chemistry" by 
Briscoe; "Economics" by Fairchild, 
Furniss. Buck; "Introductory Busin- 
ess Mathematics" by Georges & Con- 
ley; "Developmental Psychology" by 
Goodenough; "Quanitative Analysis" 
by McAlpine & Soule; "Basic Prin- 
ciples of Speech" by Sarret & Foster; 
"Plane and Sperical Trig." by Roth- 
rock; "Responsible Citizenship," Mo- 
sier. 

A definite date has not been set up 
for the opening of the book exchange 
but watch the bulletin board for fur- 
ther information.

The Tigers are really making up 
for lost time as they play five games 
during the next fifteen days after be- 
ing idle three weeks during Christmas. 
They play two games at Dodge City 
and Garden City this week, then play 
El Dorado here next week and on the 
following week they meet Dodge City 
and Garden City here. As it looks now 
the strongest team in the Western 
division seems to be Hutchinson, as 
they already have three conference 
wins. In the Eastern division the 
giant killer seems to be Independence 
who has already knocked off Hutch- 
inson and recently defeated Kansas 
City Jucos 54 to 47. Kansas City was 
considered by many as the best team 
in the state last year and they have 
almost their same first team this year. 

Some of the other recent results 
found Parsons beating El Dorado 35 
to 34, Pratt defeating Chanute 49 to 
38 and Independence winning from 
Pratt 54 to 45. 

Jimmie Turner leads the Tigers in 
scoring honors being closely pursued 
by. Earl Grinnell, Jim Ledgerwood, 
and Bud Chaplin. 

Jimmie Turner leads the Tigers in 
individual scoring with an average of

NUMBER 8 



Enrollment 
Of ACJC 
Remains High 

The second semester enrollment of 
approximately 245 junior college stu- 
dents is a far cry from 1946's 120. The 
men outnumber the members of the 
fair sex at an estimated ratio of three 
to one, a situation which the girls un- 
doubtedly find agreeable! 

There are about 160 veterans who 
have returned to take up their colleg- 
iate work which was interupted by the 
war. A great number of these were 
graduated from ACHS. 

Dean K. R. Galle was kept busy 
counseling the many students who 
were registering for the second sem- 
ester's work. However, by January 24, 
with the aid of the office staff, most of 
the numerous applicants had become 
active members of the ACJC student 
body. Others are expected to enroll 
final registration to beyond the first 
Within the next 10 days, and may swell 
term's 260. 

The more extensive choice of sub- 
jects this semester is enabling each 
student to meet the requirements in 
credit hours rendered necessary by the 
various state and out-of-state four- 
year colleges and universities. Courses 
in aviation, pre-engineering, pre-me- 
dic, pre-law, pre-business administra- 
tion, pre-home economics, and liberal 
arts are being offered the junior col- 
lege student. The greater proportion 
of enrollment seems to be in pre-en- 
gineering.

KSTC Choir 
To Sing 
Here Feb. 11 



The symphonic chorus from Em-

the direction of Orville J. Borchers 
will present a program in the junior 
high auditorium at 8 p.m. February 
11, C. L. Hinchee, music director, 
announced last week. 

The members of the chorus are 
chosen by the faculty after individual 
tryouts. The group stresses symphonic 
effects, musical finesse, and dramatic 
interpretations in their concerts. 

The program to be presented in- 
cludes outstanding sacred and secular 
compositions, oil motets, gems of 
Russian liturgy, compositions by out- 
standing modern American composers, 
many charming and delightful folk 
songs, and an abridged concert ver- 
sion of the dramatic "Merry Mount" 
by Howard Hanson, with a narrator. 
A Christmas Carol, "Joy", written by 
the conductor, Mr. Borchers, is one of 
the modern numbers used. The pro- 
gram will also include a clarinet duet, 
and numbers by a string quartet. 

Of local interest is the fact that one 
of the featured soloists is Kenneth 
Judd, a juco graduate with the class 
of 1940, and a brother of R. C. Judd, 
high school social studies instructor. 

Tickets are 50 cents, with proceeds 
from the sale being used to purchase 
junior college chior robes. Members of 
the ticket and housing committee are

chorus is requested by Mr. Hinchee to 
get in touch with one of the committee 
members immediately. 

The chorus is on tour, and after 
their appearance in Arkansas City, 
will go to Coffeyville to present two

Two Smiths Rule*- 
Over College 6 -i 
12 th Night Dinner 

Betty Smith was acclaimed queen 
at the French Clubs' Twelfth Night 
dinner which was held in the banquet 
room of the Purity Cafe, January 21. 
She chose Lael Smith to rule as king 
over the festivities. 

The queen was chosen by chance, 
with the lucky lady being the finder 
of a bean embedded in a piece. of cake. 

The program consisted of' a talk on 
his experiences in France, by C. D. 
Higby, jr., J. C. '39, and solos sung in 
French by Mildred WagneT^ahd ' Mar- 
jory Crabtree, "The Rosary"' and "Be- 
cause", respectively. Betety Smith and 
Barbara Garris recited poems. Mother 
Goose Rhymes in French were read 
by Mrs. John Skinner, Mrs. Harry 
Oldroyd, Mrs. 0. J. Palmer, and Emm- 
et Smith. Extemporaneous recitations 
were given by other members , of the 
club when they were called' upon by 
the king or the queen. 

Decorations were in- red and white. 
Dan Stark was prograrn chairman. 

Twelfth Night is widely celebrated 
in France, and commemorates the 
coming of the wise men. The local 
observance, scheduled f(r originally for 
January 6, was postponed untu Jan- 
uary 21, because of semester, exams.

Practical Joke Is 
Sweet Revenge 

Over the Christmas vacation, it 
seems that Diane Danley and Robbin 
Ledeker were the victims of a prac- 
tical joke. Before the vacation, Diane 
and Robbin had made a base experi- 
ment for chemistry, and when they 
returned to class, the experiment was 
oddly an acid. Diane, knowing Doug 
McCall, quickly surmised that he was 
the guilty culprit. 

For revenge, Diane tempted Doug 
with a piece of pumpkin pie which she 
ahd made in foods. To this .certain 
piece of pie, Miss Danley (the rascal) 
had added a rather large amount of 
cayenne pepper. If you want to know 
what it tasted like, ask Doug. Afyter he 
.had tasted the stuff, he literally hop- 
ped up and down the hall with 'his 
hand, over his ..mouth. 'Luckily, he 
couldn't talk right after the incident.

Oh yes, the other day when the gals 
were ' doing some exercises. Homer

most gals with red hair have a tem-

seldom gets angry with anyone, and 
that is what accounts for her pleasant 
and cheerful personality. 

She likes outdoor sports, dancing, 
basketball games and is crazy about 
cocker spaniels. She hates "anyone 
who is always complaining about 
something." Favorite actress by far 
is Greer Garson, while Bing Crosby is 
her choice for an actor. 

Her ambition at present is to com- 
plete college. "An Irish Lullaby" is 
her favorite song. Stand-by, here

ways see his smile and hear his jolly 
laugh whenever he is around. 
. He .enrolled in an industrial course. 

His favorite, actress is Jane Russell 
and he rates "Detour" tops on his song- 
list. Steaks, sports, and women appeal 
to him while school and studies play

Tigers Win, 
Lose in 
Double Stand 

1 Overpowered by 
Conks 45-33; Beat 
Garden City 45-44 

Coach "Bunt" Speer's juco Tigers 
broke even on the two Western Di- 
vision games, Jan. 24, 25, winning 
over the Garden City Broncs 45-44 
and losing to the Dodge City Con- 
quistadores, 33-45. 

Although they were seriously threat 
ened in the last few minutes of play, 
ithe Tigers held the lead all the way, 
Jan. 24, to take a hard fought victory 
Srom Garden City. 

With only a few minutes left to 
play, the Tigers were ahead 41-36, 
when an alert Bronc intercepted the 
■hall twice in succession,- raced down 
the court to score and narrowed the 
lead to 41-40. 

Two field goals by Bill Sneller, 
lanky Tiger center, and two for Gar- 
den City brought the score to the final 
standing, 45-44. 

Ark City lead, 23-15 at the half but 
the Garden Citians got the range in 
the second period to make the going 
rough for the locals. 

The locals were handicaped in that 
they had only two reserves but these 
"were used to good advantage to bring 
about the victory. 

Sneller lead the orange and black 
in scoring with 14 points. He was 
closely followed bv Rodney Wilson 
who tallied 13 points. Relinquishing a 
hardwon half-time lead the Tigers 
dropped a Western Conference game, 
45-33, to the hard-hitting Dodge City 
Conquistadores, Jan 25. 

Even though the Tigers were ahead, 
19-16, at intermission, they couldn't 
seem to break the Dodge City-zone 
defense in the second period. 

The Bengals, working to within 
two goals of the Conks, had their 
hopes for a victory shot to pieces 
when seven goals in rapid succession 
put Dodge City in a 38-28 lead.. , 

Bill Sneller, center, held scoring- 
honors for the locals with 11 points. 
Malcolm Smith, euard, brought .up 
second with 9 tallies.

Doris Deets, sophomore, is. the. new

over at the beginning of the second 
semester. She replaces Mrs. Betty 
Prftt, resigned. 

Wilma Tanquary, attendance clerk 
for the first semester, has taken over 
the duties of financial secretary. 
Betty Ann Oliver has been employed 
as general clerk. 



Grizzlies Win 
In Final Seconds 

The Tigers lost another heart- 
breaker on their home court January 
17, to the El Dorado Grizzlies in the 
last 15 seconds of play, when Beal, 
Grizzly forward, hit a one-handed 
shot from the side to put his team 
out in front with a narrow victory 
48 to 47. 

The Tigers outplayed the Grizzlies 
all but the last four minutes of the 
game. At the quarter the Arks led 
12 to 3. The second period ended with 
the Bengals holding a 25 to 17 half 
time advantage. 

The Grizzlies came back strong in 
the second half to tie up i the game 
with four minutes to go. During the 
next four minutes the lead changed 
several times with neither team hold- 
ing more than one or two point ad- 
vantage. Then with the Tigers lead- 
ing 47 to 46 with only 15 seconds left 
to play, Beal, El Dorado forward, 
intercepted the ball, dribbled down 
the court and sent the sphere through 
the hoop, giving the Grizzlies a nar- 
row 48 to 47 victory.

Tigers Settle 
Account with 
Johnnies 

The Tigers poured on the steam in 
the last period to defeat the strong St. 
John's college Eagles 68 to 58 at Win- 
field, January 28, to revenge a 35 to 
28 loss handed to the Bengals in their 
previous engagement. 
," Although 'the Johnnies led 28 to 27 
at the half-time, the Tigers racked up 
41 points in the last period to give the 
Bengals a well-deserved victory. 

.It was the highest scoring game of 
the season for the Tigers. Besides hit- 
ting 22 field goals, they also took ad- 
vantage of their charity tosses as they 
made 24 out of 34 attempts. 

In the third quarter, the Arks grab- 
bed a -48 to 43 margin with ten min- 
utes to play. 

Although the Johnnies came within 
one point of the Tigers with only four 
minutes left, the Tigers sped up their 
attack and increased their margin to 
68 to 58 before the final period ended. 
The Tigers employed a high-geared, 
fast-breaking offense to chalk up their 
fourth win of the season. It was the 
Johnnies fourth loss in thirteen 
games. 

Jim Turner, forward, led the Tigers 
attack, scoring 16 points. Rodney Wil- 
son, Bill Sneller, and Bud Chaplin fol- 
lowed with 13, 12, and 11 points res- 
pectively. 



Tigers Drop 
Games on 
Western Trip 

The Tigers' westward journey end- 
ed in complete disappointment as they 
lost itYfo important league games to 
the strong Dodge City Conquistadors 
and to the surprisingly tough Garden 
City Broncs. 

In an exciting game played at 
Dodge City January 10, the Tigers 
last period pally fell short, as the Con- 
quistadors defeated the Tigers 46 to44. 

The following night the Tigers were 
the victims of the Garden City Broncs, 
by a score of 41 to 28, in a slow game 
in which there were 56 fouls called. 

The Dodge City game started off 
with the Tigers obtaining an early 
lead,, but .just before the half ended 
the Conquistadors "got hot" and made 
twelve points, w.hil.e the Tigers made 
none. The, .second period ended with 
the Conquistadors leading 29 to 15. 

The Arl® outscored the Westerners 
29 to 17 in the second half, but the 
Tigers rally faited to close the gap as 
Dodge City won 46-44. 

Jim " Turner sparked the Tiger a- 
ttack as he hit seven fielders for a 
total of '14 points to cop individual 
scoring honors. 

The game at Garden City Saturday 
night was much different to that play- 
ed at~Dodgfe City the night before. It 
was a slow game, giving Garden City 
a 10 to 9 lead at the half way mark. 

The second period the Broncs start- 
ed hitting the bucket. They made bas- 
kets from all angles as they stretched 
their small early lead to 41-28 when 
the final gun sounded. 

Fifty-six fouls were called on the 
two squads, with the Tigers making 
18 free throws out of 35 and the 
Broncs converting 17 out of 26. 

Although there were a large num- 
ber of fouls called, the game was not 
rough'. The excessive whistle tooting 
slowed the game down almost to a 
walk. 

Bill. Sneller, Jim Turner and Jark 
Stigers tied for individual scoring 
honors with six points each.

Pirates 
Tumble to 
Tigers 57-53 

The much vaunted Independence 
Pirates, high scoring eastern division 
quintet, went down in defeat, 57-53, to 
Coach "Bunt" Speer's juco Tigers, 
Jan. 31, at Independence. 

The game was a see-saw affair until 
the last quarter when the Tigers, 
gained a 10 point margin and went in- 
to a prolonged stall. This "freeze" was 
a great improvement over the one that 
cost the Tigers the game against El 
Dorado. 

The Bengals, showing a fine display 
of ball handling, had little trouble in 
working the ball through the strong 
Pirate defense. After getting on the 
inside they showed a marked improve- 
ment on the accuracy of their shots. 

Here is the complete statistics: 

The Tigers led at the quarter, 18- 
17, losing this lead to the Pirates to 
make the score read 26-32 at the half. 
The Black and Orange came to lead 
44-43 at the end of the last period. 

Coach Speer placed Earl Grinnell. 
reserve forward, in guard position 
for the game and he proved to be a 
great asset at this post. 

Jimmy Turner, forward, led the 
local's attack with 17 points. Rodney 
Wilson, forward, was second with 10 
points. 

Malcolm Smith, guard, while net- 
ting only one field goal, connected 
with seven out of eight charity tosses.

College Students 
Hear Lectures 
On Atom Bomb 

Interesting lectures dealing with 
the atomic bomb and peace was pre- 
sented to local junior college students 
Thursday, January 23. Dr. A. B. Card- 
well and Carl Tjerandsen, both of Kan- 
sas State College, were the speakers. 

Dr. Cardwell, a technical advisor on 
the World War II Manhatten project, 
pointed out to the student body that 
there is no protection other than peace 
against the bomb. He stated further 
that the American people are wrong 
in the belief the the atomic secret is 
held by the United States alone. He 
emphasized the fact that there is no 
longer a secret concerning atomic en- 
ergy. 

Slide pictures of the atomic struc- 
ture and of damages which the bomb 
inflicted upon Japan were shown by 
Dr. Cardwell in explanation of his 
subject. 

Carl Tjerandsen, associate . director 
of the institute of Citizenship at Kan- 
sas State, followed Dr. Cardwell with 
his explanation of the peace proposals 
now being considered. These propo- 
sals, if successful, will eliminate fu- 
ture use of the atomic bomb. 

Miss Wilma Tanquary introduced 
the speakers.

ing the course of the evening. Gene 
Bell sang "Green Grow The Lilacs". 



Construction 
To Start 
In Spring? 

Construction of the new junior col- 
lege-trade school building will begin 
sometime late this spring or early 
summer, if voters approve plans to be 
submitted to them in the April elec- 
tion. 

The board of education has already 
purchased two-thirds of the block ad- 
jacent to the Methodist Church and 
auditorium gymnasium and extending 
to the Ranch House on Second Street. 
Funds for the building probably would 
be obtained through bonds which will 
be voted on in the city commissioners 
and school board elections this spring. 
Approximately $350,000 will be need- 
ed for the completion of the project. 

The junior college portion of the 
building would be used for trade 
school purposes. A patio similar to 
that between the junior high and high 
school buildings would occupy the 
space in the center of the building. 

All college laboratory courses and 
a majority of the other subjects would 
be taught in the new building. The 
trade school would offer a wider range 
of vocational courses in the industrial 
arts and home e^Smomics fields. 

School officials pointed out that 
even if construction could not start 
immediately, sale of bonds at present 
intrest rates could allow an estimated 
$35,000 savings in total costs over lat- 
er sale at higher rates.

KSTC Choir 
Given High Praise 
For Performance 

The Emporia State Teachers Chor- 
us, under the direction of Orville J. 
Borchers was well received in Arkan- 
sas City Tuesday evening Febuary 11 
in the junior high auditorium. 

One of the outstanding numbers of 
the evening was "Joy" composed and 
directed by Dr. Borchers. As it was 
portraying the college students spirit 
at the Christmas holiday, the score 
was fast moving. 

Another highlight of the program 
was the tenor solo in "Poor Wayfaring 
Stranger" done by Kenneth Judd, j.c. 
'40. 

After the consert the chorus mem- 
bers were guests in the high school 
and junior college students' homes, 
leaving Wednesday morning for Cof- 
feyville to give two performances. 
Their appearance in Arkansas City 
was part of the annual tour taken by 
the group. 

Proceeds from the ticket sales went 
into the junior college choir robe fund. 
The robes are to be purchased soon so 
the choir can can appear in them this 
spring.

Married Couples Attending Junior College 




Pictured above are: Left to right, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. Ned Pratt, and 
Mr. and Mrs. John Skinner. The fourth couple of ACJC, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Johnston, were unable to 
be present due to illness. 



Marriage with 
College Adds 
To Problems 



Married couples attending junior 
college and maintaining a household 
this semester find that these duties 
consume considerable time and effort. 
Just to make the matters worse a hus- 
band seldom sees his wife during their 
school hours. 

Perhaps the greatest obstacle fac- 
ing these couples is the matter of 
money. Of the four couples attending 
ACJC, two have elected to depend up- 
on the $90 a month entirely, they are 
Mr. and Mrs. Paul Johnston and Mr. 
and Mrs. Bill Johnson. The other cou- 
ples, the Ned Pratts and the John 
Skinners, are finding time to work and 
still go to school. 

Mr. and Mrs. Paul Johnston plan on 
completing junior college before they 
begin farming for a life work, 
the government and they find living in 

Mr. and Mrs. Bill Johnson are plan- 



ning to finish college with the help of 
a little duplex, owned by a relative, 
is a great advantage. 

Mr. John Skinner, while studying- 
for the ministry, is director of the 
Ranch House and spends considerable 
time preparing his Sunday sermon for 
the Mount Hope Methodist Church. 
Mis. Skinner finds she is plenty busy 
helping him with his work and keep- 
ing him fed. By the way, John says he 
has gained ten pounds since his mar- 
riage, due to the fine meals. 

Mr. Ned Pratt is working at the 
New Era Mill as a chemist in the 
afternoons while Mrs. Pratt cares for 
the- home. She has resigned her duties 
in the college office due to the lack of 
time. Mr. Pratt is studying marine 
engineering. 

The couples haven't been married 
long enough to establish a budget yet 
they say but the Skinners are trying 
one now. Mrs. Skinner says, "He keeps 
the budget and I spend the money". 

With th additional problems of the 
married couples in college deep in 
mind, let's give credit to the four 
couples along with all the other mar- 
ried men in the Arkansas City Junior 
College for their ability to struggle 
on to the success of the future. 



Colonel M, Tchou 
Talks in Assembly 

Colonel M. Thomas Tchou, Chinese 
engineer and an authority on Euro- 
pean affairs , spoke on "World Citiz- 
enship and World Peace" in a college 
assembly February 18. 

Colonel Tchou was former secre- 
tary to Generalissimo Chiang Kai 
Shek and secretary to the National 
Committee of the Chinese Y.M.C.A. 
At the International Labor Confer- 
ence in Geneva he held the post of 
vice-president.

Social After Hutchinson Game 

A social sponsored by the junior 
college student council was the cli- 
max of th exciting game with Hutch- 
inson here on February 7. The main 
purpose of the social was to entertain 
the Hutchinson students who accom- 
panied their players to Ark City. Due 
to the cold weather the expected crowd 
did not arrive. 

Dancing and card playing provided 
the entertainment for the evening.

Tigers Clash With Pratt Beavers Tomorrow Night 




The Tigers will be out for their third league win tomorrow night when they meet Pratt on the home court.

Second row: Ass't. Coach Wally Smith, Jack Blankenship, Warren Dowell, Robben Ledeker, Keith Hearne, 
Jack Stigers, and Coach Bunt Speer. 



Tigers Lose to Dragons, 
Pirates, Panthers; Beat Vets 



Coach "Bunt" Speer's juco Tigers 
haven't done so well in their last four 
games, winning one and losing three. 
They were defeated by Hutchinson, 
Chanute, and Independence, but came 
out on top of a tangle with Chilocco. 

The Tigers fell victim to a final 
showing of pow^r by the Hutchinson 
Blue Dragons, Feb. 7, losing, 57-53. 

Hayden Hubbard, towering Dragon 
center, held scoring honors with 16 
points while Malcolm Smith was high 
for the Tigers with 12 points. Rod- 
ney Wilson was runner up for the 
locals with 9 tallies. 

The Chanute Black Panthers defeat- 
ed the Tigers, 53-45, Feb. 8, when the 
Arks failed to "batten down the hatch- 
es" on the Panther center, Tiegreen, 
who scored 27 points. 

Jim Turner and Bud Chaplin lead 
the Tigers in scoring with 10 points 
each. 



The Bengals managed to pull out of 
-their slump long enough to down the 
Chilocco Indian Vets, 46-26, in a fast 
moving game at Chilocco, Feb. 11. 

Using eleven players, eight of whom 
scored, Coach Speer's quintet outplay- 
ed the Vets all the way, leading 23-8 
at intermission. Wilson and Dowell 
each had 10 tallies. 

Having lost two regulars on person- 
al fouls at the beginning of the second 
half, the Tigers w r ere unable to main- 
tain their halftime lead over the In- 
dependence Pirates and went down 
56-53. 

Jimmy Turner lead the Bengal of- 
fence with 16 points.

Oscar Thomas 

Looking into the crystal ball I see 
the Tigers beating the last place Pratt 
Beavers here tomorrow night 46 to 34 
to rack up their third conference vic- 
tory. 

An organization, which has done 
a lot in the way of school spirit this 
year and have not received much cred- 
it is the college pep band. Although 
small in number they have surely con- 
tributed much to the cause, so let's all 
get behind them Friday night and 
really make a lot of noise. 

A coming event to look forward to 
is the annual basketball play-off be- 
tween the freshman and sophomore 
classes, which is expected to take 
place sometime in March. 

Jim Turner, tricky forward increas- 
ed his lead in individual scoring hon- 
ors during the last two weeks to a 
9.60 average. Bill Sneller follows him 
with an even 8.00 point average.

Antonia Martinez, 
College Graduate 
Makes Mark At KU 

Antonia Martinez ; better known as 
"Tonie", was interviewed for the 
"Coeds Corner" in the last issue of 
the Kansas University paper. 

The article called "Tonie" one of 
the "energies" on the campus, this 
can be easily understood for she is 
president of Hensley house, the YM- 
CA headquarters, and the internation- 
al club. She also belongs to the Kappa 
Phi Methodist sorority, the Spanish 
Club, and the Lawrence League for 
the Practice of Democracy. Last year 
she was on the Dean's honor roll, but 
missed it a few points this semester. 

Tonie is majoring in Spanish ed- 
ucation and after graduation in June, 
she plans to teach. According to Tonie, 
the middle years of a college educat- 
ion are the most trying. "You are in 
the middle of an immense adventure, 
and you know so much depends on 
your decisions. You can hardly re- 
member the beginnings or see the 
end of your college life." 
ucationaNedal 

Tonie graduated from the Ark City 
high school in '42 and from the Ark 
City junior college in '44 making 
high scholastic marks in both. She 
is fond of both of the colleges, "It's 
a toss up which I like the best" she 
stated. 



THE BASEMENT BUZZ 



With trouble and care, 
I've written this colum 
So try to wade through it 
And don't dispair! 





Yes, I know I'm not a poet, but I had 
to get this thing started some way, 
didn't I? 



The last college social really went 
over with a bang (meaning all those 
bushels of popcorn, of course). Didn't 
Gaamnella of the white sholders really 
wow these Juco lads? We think Mr. 

Maag was a beautiful blond we 

liked that backless formal, too! Es- 
pecially the mole! 



We nominate Chuck Hutchinson for 
the most industrious man around here 
this season. We hear that one Satur- 
day night after working until mid- 
night he was later discovered washing 
dishes at a local cafe. How about that 
Chuck? 



'Betcha that Lenna Payton was the 
first girl around here to receive a 
football letter. Was that a blush on 
her face as she tripped down the aisle 
to claim Walt Daltons' award? Or the 
flush of haughty pride? 

O 

Our votes for the best dressed 
"women" of the year go to beauty 
contest candidates P. M. Johnson (say, 
we really liked that figure), D. C. 



Stark (Sr.!), Sam Crain, Bud Yates, 
Jack Rine, and the winner, Charlie 
Belt. 



Norman (June-yor) Byers: "Brrrrrr, 
it never was this cold before on my 
birthday!" 
Kermit Sandefur: "When's vour 

birthday?" 
Norman: "In June." 



Orchids to 

Betty May Hughett — for managing 

the concession stand. 
Betty Lou Miller — for making a 
really swell high school basket- 
ball queen. 
Kenny Quimby — proud papa of a 

six-weeks-old daughter. 
And then of course we should give 
Jack Ward a double orchid for 
becoming the father of twins. 

O 

Now is the time for quips, quotes, 
and all that stuff! 

Morgan Wright: (to Becky Rine) 
"Do you feel high on heels?" (That 
was a pun, son.) 

Miss Hawley: (to students in then- 
stocking feet during broadcast rehear- 
sal) "Well anyway, it's a good thing 
we don't have 'smell-e-vision' ". 

O 

And as a Virginia kennel with dach- 
shund puppies for sale advertised* 
I'll "Get A Long Little Doggie". 
Goodbye now.

Doris Deets: "Who was the most pop- 
ular band leader of all times?"

Vets Urged to 
Register Firearms 
With US Treasury 

That German sub-machine gun, 
your Japanese sawed-off shot gun or 
your prized Italian shooting cane — 
they must all be registered with the 
U. S. Treasury department. 

The government permits veterans 
to own these shootin' iron souvenirs. 
They know that the war veteran is 
proud of his "loot" and he enjoys 
showing his private arsenal to admir- 
ing friends, but the government does 
not want the guns to fall into the 
hands of criminals. 

The national firearms act, although 
not a widely known law, has been pas- 
sed to require registration of all dan- 
gerous firearms, and a prohibitive tax 
of $200 has been designed to keep the 
guns in the hands of the veterans who 
brought them back as war trophies. 

The arms affected by the order are 
machine guns and repeating pistols, 
shotguns and rifles with less than 18 
inch barrels, except rifles of .22 cali- 
bre or smaller. All machine guns and 
repeating firearms are to be welded 
or rendered useless unless a special 
permit is obtained to keep them in 



firing order. 

Any veteran who has such a weap- 
on in his possesion should get them 
registered at the alcohol tax unit, lo- 
cated in the post office building, at

Dreams Reveal College 
Students Desires In Life 



Stop! You are about to read of the 
innermost, hidden wishes of several 
students. Dreams, according to the 
most eminent psychiatrists, reveal 
hidden desires. 

Paying no attention to the fact that 
many of the dreams can be blamed 
on coffee, onions or a ('mid-night" 
snack, a reporter asked 10 collegians, 
"What did you dream last night?", 
then delved into the dark recesses of 
their minds tofind the answers. Here 
they are, for what they're worth: 

Dick Kely, "Nig*htly dreams of Mac- 
Beth disturb my rest, since hearing 
it in Miss Sleeth's room." 

Ann McAdam; "I ate onions before 
I went to bed so I dreamed of onions 
al night." 

Caroll Rathbun: "I was falling off 
of a high bridge. I fell alright, when 
I woke up I was on the floor beside 
my bed." 

Phyllis Conrad: "LaVonne was mad 
at me — there was a flood — I wanted 
to go home — so she was mad — we 
were in Ponca City — " Stop! This 



could go on indefinately. 

Harold White: "We (3 boys) went 
swimming and when I started to turn 
over I couldn't because the water was 
to shallow. It was a terrible feeling. 
Really strange." 

Wilma Tanquary ; "Indians were 
raiding our house with bows and ar- 
rows so I grabbed my trusty rifle and 
began to fight them." Excitement ga- 
lore. 

Phil Smith: "Guess! Women, Wo- 
men, Women, Womankind as a whole, 
Women, Women, Women." 

Doris Deets: "Great big frogs. Ter- 
rible frogs." 

Marjorie Crabtree: "A package 
came from my brother in Germany 
and as I was opening it my sis poked 
me to wake me up and I said , 'Don't 
wake me up I'm opening a package 
from Germany' ". 

Norman Byers: (As given by Don 
Cameron) "I beat Don Cameron in an 
arguement. Oh boy!" 



Gaamenella Visits 
Social; Models 
Give Preformance 

Gaamenella of the White Shoulders 
was the main topic of conversation 
at the junior college social held in the 
study hall last week, while games, 
cards, dancing, and singing made up 
the activity for the evening. 

With the playing of appropriate 
music, "In My Arms", the charming 
and alluring Gammenella of the 
White Shoulders made her appear- 
ance as the feature attraction of the 
evening. For those who would like to 
know what Gaamenella means it's 
Allen E. Maag spelled backwards. 

Hidden talent was discovered when 
Charles Belt, Jack Rine, Leslie Yates, 
Mr. D. C. Stark, Mr. P. M. Johnson, 
and Sam Crain was asked to model. 
The models were judged on poise 
and style, with Charles Belt winning 
the prize, a copy of "Seventeen". 

The party was under the direction 
of the social committee headed by 
Betty Ann Pearson.

We now have two basketball teams

$2 Per Hour 
For College 
Education 



From Iowa State comes the infor- 
mation that each hour spent in a 
classroom or laboratory is costing 
the average student slightly more 
than two dollars. It was computed 
this way: total fee costs, books costs, 
living expenses and potential earning 
power (as if you had a job and were 
not in school). This sum is divid- 
ed by the total number of hours spent 
in classes during one quarter. For 
a married student the cost will ex- 
ceed three dollars per hour. 

Looking at a college education 
from this viewpoint one can see the 
vital need for worthwhile material 
economically presented and properly 
used. To meet that need the admin- 
istration, instructors, and student 
share a triple responsibility. 

First, the college administration 
must be certain that each course is 
worth its hourly cost. With this, it 
must make every effort to provide 
a teaching staff of the best instruc- 
tors in each field of study. 

Secondly, the college instructors 
should wonder if their lectures are 
always worth the price of admission. 

Class time goes by at the rate of 
four cents per minute, and if the stu- 
dent is married, the cost is six cents 
per minute. The average of a nickle-a- 
minute calls for a lot of worthwhile 
talking and when time is wasted a 
student might rightfully ask if he has 
received his money's worth. 

Then there is the third party in 
this two-dollar-per-hour investment 
whom we must consider. He is the 
one who puts out his two dollar bills 
for every classroom hour, the stu- 
dent. It might be worse if he should 
occasionally stop and wonder if he is 
getting enough in return. Does his 
personal underwriting in study and 
interest sufficiently cover the invest- 
ment? An interesting note is that 
one cup of coffee while cutting a 
class costs $2.05 and as figured 
"There's still a lot of coffee in 
Brazil," and some of it costs that 
much. 

It is estimated by instructors that 
a college degree ultimately is worth 
$10,000 in extra wages. This means 
that education is being offered and 
received at an hourly rate which 
looks high even in these days of in- 
flated wages.

Tigers Start 
Training for 
Spring Sports 

Tennis Squad Already 
Working Out, Track 
To Begin Next Week 

Since last week finished the basket- 
ball season for the Tigers, they are 
now turning their attention to track, 
tennis and possibly golf, if there is a 
demand for it. 

The tennis team under the direction 
of Coach Raymond Judd is looking 
forward to a successful season. Re- 
turning letterman include Don Duncan 
and Gene Bell who won the juco state 
doubles crown at El Dorado last year. 
Don Duncan, when a senior in high 
school won nearly every meet he en- 
tered, including the Ark-Vally singles 
title and the state doubles crown. 

Another pair of racket swingers ex- 
pected to give opposition plenty of 
trouble are Doug McCall and Chuck 
Hutchinson. In high school they team- 
ed to win the Ark-Valley doubles title 
and also were runner-up for the state 
doubles title. 

The tennis team began practice this 
week in the senior high gym. 

The Tiger track team under the 
tutelage of Coach Bunt Speer won't 
start workouts until next week be- 
cause the Bulldogs are using the gym 
preparing for the regional tournament 
at Wellington. 

The track squad has only four re- 
turning lettermen, Jim Hollenback, 
Earl Grinnell, Willis Shelhamer and 
Jack Rine. 

The Tigers have the best half miler 
in the state, Malcolm Smith, who 
holds the state record: time one min- 
ute and 57 seconds. 

One track meet has already been 
put on the calendar. That is the Cof- 
feyville relays, which is scheduled to 
take place, April 25 at Coffeyville. 

Some of the other schools expected 
to have track and tennis meets are 
Hutchinson, El Dorado and Indepen- 
dence.

Tigers Roll Over 
Kanotex 60-41 
In Benefit Game 

Using a fast break, smooth passing, 
and accurate shooting, Coach "Bunt" 
Speer's juco Tigers took an impressive 
60-41 victory from the Kanotex Oilers, 
city league champions, in the second 
game of the annual PTA basketball 
doubleheader, Feb. 25. 

Confiscating an early lead, the Tig- 
ers were ahead to the final gun. The 
Bengals had trouble holding Oliver 
Rutter, Oiler pivot ace who dunked in 
10 field goals, but this proved insuf- 
ficient to turn the tide for the oilers. 

The Arks lead, 29-18 at intermission 
and tallied 11 points in the second 
stanza before their opponents could 
score. 

Forward Jimmy Turner led the ju- 
cos in individual scoring with 16 
points. Bill Sneller, center, accounted 
for 13 points.

TIGER CLAWS 

Oscar Thomas 

The Tigers wound up the 1946-47 
basketball season with a record of 
nine wins and 12 losses for a percent- 
age of .450. 

The winner of the Western division, 
the Hutchinson Blue Dragons and the 
victors of the Eastern division, the 
Fort Scott Greyhounds meet this week 
in a two out of three cage play-off to 
decide the state championship team. 
As it looks now its practically a toss- 
up with possibly the Ft. Scott Grey- 
hounds calling the coin right. If the 
Greyhounds do come out victorious 
they will surely have to play a better 
brand of ball than they did last week, 
when the Coffeyville Ravens stomped 
the Greyhounds 65 to 39 at Coffeyville 
to snap their 16 game winning streak. 

Coach Stoner, the Coffeyville track 
mentor announced he was trying to 
make the Coffeyville relay meet an 
■all-day event with the finals at night 
and is also planning a queen crowning 
ceremony. 



Tigers Edge 

Grizzlies 

By One Point 

Arks Close 12 Point Gap 
In Last Minutes; Chaplin's 
Fielder Proves Winning Goal 

Revenging an earlier loss, Coach 
"Bunt" Speer's juco Tigers edged out 
the El Dorado Grizzlies, 48-47, at El 
Dorado, Feb. 28. The score was ident- 
ical to that of the previous encounter 
except that this time the Arks were 
the victors. 

Trailing by one point with only a 
few seconds to play, guard Bud Chap- 
lin netted a long one to win the game. 
The Grizzlies led throughout the rest 
of the game, the score being 23-16 in 
their favor at the half. 

The Tigers, displaying a fast, de- 
termined brand of ball, disrupted the 
Grizzlies' offense in the second period 
and forged ahead to close the 12 point 
gap that stood between them and vic- 
tory- 
Leading the Bengal attack was for- 
ward Rodney Wilson, who scored 15 
points. Center Bill Sneller tallied 12 
more. 

Although the Grizzlies netted two 
more field goals than the Tigers, they 
could not match them at the free 
throw line. The Arks made 16 out of 
21 charity tosses to the Grizzlies 11 
out of 24.

Jim Turner Leads 
Individual Scoring 

Jim Turner, star forward for the 
Tigers, finished with a 9.50 point av- 
erage to lead the Bengals in the 1946- 
47 cage campaign. 

Turner was closely pursued by Bill 
Sneller, tall center, with a 8.30 point 
average. Turner led the major part of 
the season and increased his lead in 
the last four games. 

The Tigers will lose only one player 
from the list below, that will be Earl 
Grinnel who is the only sophomore on 
the squad.

Collegians To 
Stage Drive 
For Building 

Junior college students will stage 
their own drive next week for a new 
college home, under plans developed 
by the student council, Gene Bell, 
student president, announced this 
week. 

A door-to-door canvass explaining 
the need for the proposed junior col- 
lege-trade school building is sched- 
uled for March 27, five days before 
April 1 election in which the voters 
will decide on the $350,000 bond iss- 
ue. 

TO DISMISS CLASSES 

Bell announced that permission had 
been granted by Dean K. R. Galle 
for suspension of college class work 
while students stage the all-day cam- 
paign. College students are expected 
to meet in a special assembly Thurs- 
day morning for final instructions 
for their canvass. 

Armed with pamplets prepared by 
Dan Stark, jr., a student council mem- 
ber, and Charles Belt printing stu- 
dent, and a special edition of the sen- 
ior high's Ark Light picture magazine 
showing school needs, collegians will 
spend the day trying to reach each 
voter in the school district. 

FREE RIDE TO POLLS 

Students will offer free transpor- 
tation to the polls for voters in an 
effort to register as heavy a vote as 
possible. 

Tentative plans include a picnic 
lunch for canvassers when they re- 
turn to report their progress, Bell 
said.

E You and F 
Selected for 
Juco Play 

The junior college has selected for 
its' annual dramatic production the 
three-act comedy "You and I", which 
will be presented April 11, in the 
junior high auditorium, Miss Pauline 
B. Sleeth, speech instructor, an- 
nounced last week. The students of the 
college speech class feel the pro- 
duction is especially appropriate for 
the present times. 

Rosemary Warren, Marjorie Nugen, 
Melba Thompson, Don Duncan, Don 
Terrill, and Jack Stahl were named 
as the final cast after two days of 
tryouts last week. Daily rehearsals 
have begun. Each character will 
share equal importance, for there are 
no leads in the comedy. 

The author of the three-act comedy, 
Philip Barry, is one of America's 
most noted playwrites. "You and I" 
won the Harvard prize the year it 
was published and made Burns Man- 
tel's "The Best Plays" of the same 
year. The comedy "The Youngest" by 
the same writer was given by the 
junior college several years ago, and 
it was well received. Other plays 
written by Barry include "Philadel- 
phia Story", and "Paris Bound". 

Students who have read "You and I" 
are highly enthusiiastic as to the plot 
and confident the public will apprec- 
iate the performance.

The faces of the juco students that 
once were pink and tanned by the 
summer sun have now paled slightly 
and the parents of these individuals 
are wondering just what ACJC is do- 
ing to their children! It couldn't be 
the difficulty or the subjects for they 
observe comparitively little homework 
being attacked by their offspring in 
the evenings. What would heighten 
their color and morale and their out- 
look to the future ? The answer to this 
important question is, sunlight, and 
thus a new juco building! 

A new Arkansas City junior college 
building would offer much needed 
protction to the poor, nearly-asphyx- 
iated history and geography student 
who is now suffering from the pun- 
gent odors of decaying zoological 
specimens and the scent of burning 
pie crust conjured by some co-ed 
aspiring to make some man a good 
wife! 

Some time ago, a situation was get- 
ting dangerously out of hand. Juco 
students were appearing in their class- 
rooms five and ten minutes after the 
last bell. Following a thorough in- 
vestigation, it was discovered that the 
dials of the old combination locks 
were a little hard to discern in the 
murky haze which hovered over "The 
Gay White Way" of ACJC. Now, we 
have locks which can be opened in 
pitch blackness! What marvels the 
atomic age has wrought for civiliza- 
tion. 

No doubt ACJC's enrollment would 
increase by leaps and bounds with a 
new building. Crowded as colleges are 
these days, it would not be surpris- 
ing to see hundreds of prospective 
students from many states desiring 
admittance. At any rate, the Tiger 
clan has far outgrown its present 
quarters, and "bursting seams re- 
quire new clothing". Advantages of 
a new college home lie not only in the 
fact that it would be an integral part 
of Arkansas City's expanding ed- 
ucational system, but most of all, 
it would enable Arkansas City to 
better prepare each student for his 
occupation, to help stablize him and 
make his future secure, by offering 
him the best in courses and instruct-

Juco Building 
Benefit to All 
In Future Education 

These are days of post-war pro- 
jects, projects which will benefit nat- 
ions, communities and individuals. 
One of the greatest of these is the 
growth of education. It is evident that 
the need for colleges and trade schools 
is of pressing importance in the pre- 
sent atomic age. 

Arkansas City now has the oppor- 
tunity to have a junior college-trade 
school building, but the realization of 
such an institution is entirely depend- 
ent upon John Q. Public. Without the 
support of the citizens of Arkansas 
City in the bond-vote this spring a 
new building can never be had. 

Vocational facilities in Arkansas 
City were once the best to be had, 
but that was 30 years ago. Times 
have changed. Even though the in- 
dustrial arts classrooms have been ar- 
ranged to give a maximum of space, 
they are still so crowded that proper 
training is nearly impossible. The e- 
quipment too has become out-dated 
and obsolete. 



The college academic situation is in 
a similar state. High school classes 
convene at a different time than the 
college, causeing considerable disturb- 
ance; the study hall is placed across 
the hall from the junior high school 
gymn; the college library exists only 
in the sharing of high school facilities. 
These together with certain denied 
rights of college students, due to high 
school, college interference makes the 
need for a new college imperative. 

"We need the college and we need 
the trade school, but first we need the 
support of the student body to pro- 
mote the project." Supt. C. E. St. John 
told students in a recent assembly 
program. "The public will support the 
project only if students inform that 
public of their needs and aspirations". 

Have you told your freinds and 
acquaintances how badly the new! 
building is needed? Do it now!

Two partners took a day off to shoot

partner suddenly exclaimed, "My 
Gosh, I think I forgot to lock the cash 
box." "So what?" said the other. 
""We're both here, ain't we?" 

"Guilty or not guilty?" thundered 
the Judge. "Dunno," said the prisoner 
meekly. "I ain't heard the evidence

Former Students of Basement U. 
Favor and Support New School 



That former students of the junior 
college are enthusiastically support- 
ing the proposed college-trade school 
building program was indicated in a 
random poll of 23 graduates of 12 
classes, ranging from 1928 to 1943. 

Without exception the "old-grads" 
expressed approval of changes look- 
ing toward a ''home of its own for 
their Alma Mater. Their reason rang- 
ed from simply "getting out of the 
basement" to a desire for a new dig- 
nity and "grown-up" appearance for 
the school they call their own. 

Typical of expressions of young 
bisinessmen was the belief that the 
new building would be a town asset 
likely to bring definate business and 
cultural advantages to the entire com- 
munity. 

The 23 persons interviewed by the 
Tiger Tales was asked the question: 
"How do you feel about the proposed 
junior college trade school building 
program and what are the reasons for 
your belief?" Their answers: 

Donald Hickman, class of '31: "I 
am glad to endorse and urge public 
support of the proposed Trade School 
and Junior College project. As an al- 
umnus of the Junior College, I have 
long had a personal interest in it and 
have recognized the very real need of 
a building appropriate for and suited 
to its needs. The building will enable 
our Junior College to grow rapidly 
and assume an outstanding position 
among such schools in this territory. 

"Conditions of the post-war period, 
during which we are now passing, 
strongly suggest the need for a Trade 
School. We must be prepared to equip 
young people for trades and voca- 
tions now — not at some remote future 
time after other cities and institu- 
tions have established facilities for 
such purposes. 

"Support of this project shows faith 
in this community. We need it, and 
we need it now." 

Bud Higby, class of 1939: "Certain- 
ly wish that we'd had it while I was 
going to school. I think that it is a 
very good idea and it will be good for 
the students." 

Loren Kelley, class of 1939: "I am 
definately in favor. It is not much 
good as it is and I think that it could 
be much better." 

A wonderful Idea 

Marcalee Ferguson Robe, class of 
1941: "A wonderful idea. I'm all for it. 
I think that the junior college is won- 
derful now but it is definately held 
back by a lack of space. It is just the 
thing for Arkansas City." 

Cecil Nolan, class of 1933: "I only 
wish that we'd had it while I was in 
school, then we wouldn't have had to 
look around for a course to take but 
could have found some really good 
courses that we wanted." 



Badly Needed 

Bill Frailey, class of 1931; "Badly 
needed. The only question is can we 
afford it? If we figure the whole 
thing out I think that we'll find there 
is no question that we can afford it." 

Howard Neumann, class of 1933: A 
very good project. It has been needed 
for a long time. Anyone who went to 
Basement U. should be very happy 
for a new building, and I'm sure I 
would support it." 

Jack Axley class of 1937: "Wonder- 
ful idea. I went to it in the basement 
and so I know. It would offer many 
more advantages and opportunities to 
the students." 

Mrs. Eleanor Stanton Farrar class 
of 1937: "I think that it is a really 
fine idea. We need a new building and 
we need it badly." 

Mrs. Gail Fesler Ross class of 1928: 
"A very good idea. Junior college 
needs a building of its own, and it 
would certainly be wonderful for the 
town." 

Growth Demands It 

De Lore Sowden class of 1936: 
"Surely college had outgrown the 
basement by now. It was almost full 
when I was there three years ago. I 
think it is a wonderful idea." 

Dr. Edward Brenz, Jr., class of 
1934 "I am strictly for it." 

J. B. Fencil, class of 1943: "I think 
that it is a very good idea. It will 
help improve everything and offer the 
fellows and girls what they want in 
classes. I think that, all in all, it is 
the best idea the town ever had." 

Raymond Hackney, class of 1937: 
"I am strictly for it. It is definitely 
needed and will be good for the town." 

George Sybrant, class of 1942: "A 
very grand idea. It is something that 
has been needed for a long time. It 
will help both the high school and the 
college students and bring about an 
increased enrollment of out of town 
students. I am sure that it will help 
the town both now and in the future." 
Should Leave High School 

Howard King, class of 1935: "The 
junior college should be away from 
the high school. It is a higher degree 
of learning." 

Georgia Long, class of 1931 ; "The 
grandest thing that the town ever had 
happen. It would be so much more 
like college. Higher education should 
not be in the basement." 

Steven Wright, class of 1933: "We 
definitely have to have both the new 
trade school and the junior college 
if we plan to build the school system 
and keep it at a high level." 

Dr. Jess Ruf, class of 1939: "I am 
in favor of it. One thing I do know— 
I certainly wouldn't disapprove of it." 

Fostine Fox Moncrief, class of- 
1930: "I am definitely in favor of it. 
I think it would be wonderful for the

Dick Curtiss, class of 1941: "Yes 
I definitely approve of it. The growth

It will afford an opportunity for the 
town to improve itself." 

Vergie Mae Bryant, class of '41: 
"A wonderful thing. The junior col- 
lege needs to get out of the base- 
ment." 

Jim Cornish, class of '34: "I'm in 
favor of it. It has been badly needed 
for 13 years. There is no question as 
to whether Ark City can afford it or 
not. We should not be short-sighted 
even in this time of inflation and high

Th# Feminine Touch 

by Rahn 

The old flu bug has really hit B. U. 
hard. What's the matter, can't you big 
people lick a little old helpless bug 
yet? 

Our gym class has been hit rather 
hard by the flu, too (poetic, aren't I). 
We have given up basketball for 
something less ( ? ) strenous, if you 
drop over sometime, you can probably 
see us doing some folk dances. Some 
are Swedish, and others are crazy. In 
fact they are so different that the 
other day I overheard someone say, 
"If you fall down, just get up grace- 
fully and everyone will think it was 
part of the dance." Joke, that is. 

Well, I guess I'll trot along, I don't 
feel so well, maybe the flu bug is 
catching up with me too oh, no! 



7. C. C. A. Holds 
Hamburger Fry 

The Juco Christian Association held 
a hamburger fry preceded their March 
18 meeting. The hamburgers were fri- 
ed in the Junior College foods room 
with Charles Early and Sam Crain as 
chefs. 

A candle light meeting was held in 
the study hall after the feed. A pic- 
ture of Christ surrounded by the can- 
dles made a very impressive meeting 
place. 

The group decided to give one hun- 
dred dollars to charitable societies, 
with the cabinet making the decisions. 
The group also decided to buy a Bible 
and a New Versoin of the New Testa- 
ment. 

Doris Deets read "The Lowest 
Place", followed by group singing led 
by Doris with Connie Brown accom- 
paning. Forrest Musson gave the 
scripture reading. "If With All Your 
Heart" was sang by Genevieve Goff, 
and was accompanied by Connie. Sam 
Crain talked on "The Work of Jesus". 
The invocation and benediction were 
given by Erma Marshall. 



Questions Today 
On Juco Hour 

The Juco Hour, the ACJC radio pro- 
gram, will feature college students 
and there educational aims today. 
The program, under the direction of 
A. E. Maag, will consist of a number 
of varied questions which are design- 
ed to show exactly why students are 
attending ACJC in preference to other 
colleges. 

Gene Bell, president of the student 
council, will be master of ceremonies 
and will ask all the questions of the 
people on the show, students will be 
chosen at random from ACJC or from 
senior high school. Questions will in- 
clude queries such as "Why do you 
like ACJC better than other colleges, 
or do you?" "Are you married?" 
"Where is your home?" "Are you a 
veteran?" "Do you attend on the Bill 
of Rights payments, or pay your own 
way?" 

Questions of this kind are expected 
to show the problems of students 
attending and explain the facilities to 
future students.

Vote Bonds for 
Bar in Clubrooms 
On April 33 

Vets attending ACJC this semester 
find that everyone is voting bonds 
for something or other, so a bar in 
the clubrooms is the idea brought 
forth by Lael Smith. 

Smith who will be ghostwriting for 
the advertising campaign asserts: 
"With the backing of all the vets and 
other interested parties, we can put 
this thing over!" 

Veterans are drawing up the plans 
for the bar now, and information on 
the project says "it will be revolu- 
tionary!" The G. I. Bill will cover all 
beer expense. 

War surplus canteens will be bought 
instead of glasses for beer. Beer will 
be kept running at all times from a 
shower - like affair in the center- 
piece of the bar. The bar itself will 
be appropriately decorated on top and 
front with discharge papers stuck 
edge to edge. 

The hog market today took a 

great downfall as the price went 

down to 3.00 per lb. 

No hard liquor will be served how- 
ever as competition to the local boot- 
leggers would be disastrious. 

The Bonds come up for vote April 
33, and it is requested that all vets 
turn out to the polls and vote X for 
the project.

Dream Girl Selected by B. U. Students 



Calling all girls! Do you swim, like 
Boogie Woogie and have a ready wit? 
If so read on because you will pro- 
bably rate high as the "lovable girl 
of the month". 

A poll, sent out from a New York 
firm, was given to 57 A.C.J.C. boys. 
So be alert and keep your eyes open. 
The lovable girl may be you. 

45 out of 57 boys say the mind is 
much more important than looks or 
bank roll in making a girl lovable. 
Six stand by the looks and two will- 
ingly profess to be looking out for 
themselves and finding out how her 
bankroll stands. One said "I want to 
check on her checks and then double 
check on her check book." Face is the 
most important aspect of looks with 
figure and hair playing a close sec- 
ond. Clothes and complexion brought 
the same number of votes to tie for 
third place. The most unimportant 
thing is, amazingly enough , "good 
looking legs." 

To cook, run a house, dance, keep 
quiet and let the man talk and swim 
ranked the five top places under abil- 
ities to make a loveable girl. 35 boys 
put cooking in the A number 1 pos- 
ition. 

They say that they would like a 



girl better if she liked children, pets 
and a good book. 29 said they appre- 
ciated girls who liked "nightlife and 
highballs." So 

For heaven sakes be interested in 
your man. 57 out of 57 boosted this 
to the highest position of all. In the 
words of one boy. "At least make us 
think that you're interested in us. If 
you can fool us that much more power 
to you but listen — a boy is hard to 
fool!" Appreciation of attentions, in- 
dependence and thriftiness helps but 
intrest, nothing can compare. 

Wit, a sense of humor and parents 
who mind their own business took the 
lead over influential friends, a house 
of her own and a large liquor closet. 

Political conviction make not a part- 
ical of difference in the opinion of 47 
boys. Ten said that they wished the 
girl had some conviction while one 
said he wanted the girl to be very, 
very strong in her notions. Of the ten 
four wanted their girl to be Republi- 
can, four said Democrat while Com- 
munist and Socialist got one each. 

Eighteen is the age when a girl 
reaches the "most lovable moment". 
But opinions widely varied. One said 
16 to 66, another 5 to 65 but the most 



definate was "25 to the hour, minute 
and second." 

Ingrid Bergman would undoubtly 
be the pin-up of our school if the boys 
took over. Thirty-one cast their votes 
for her, twelve for Lana Turner and 
the rest were divided between Marjor- 
ie Reynolds, Betty Hutton, Ann Sher- 
idan and Jane Russell. One original 
fellow even went so far as to say 
"Cass Dailey or Virginia O'Brein be- 
cause they are so warm in their 
smiles." 

As to what the boys thought of this 
poll and wrote under additional in- 
formation if you dare go a- 

head. "Nuts", "Is this a college or?", 
"She has to own a Buick and a new 
one.", How intelligent do you think I 
am ? It would take a mastermind to 
answer this.", "Is their any danger of 
my girl getting her hands on this?" 
When answered no, he said, "Oh boy! 
here is where I tell her off, on paper 
of course that is the only way I dare 
to do it." But to top them all comes 
the remarks: "I suggest that ACJC 
formulate a girls' 'Non-chatter — non 
giggle" class. And "This is writ by 
hand and sweared to on a stack of 
calculus books."

Night Club 
Discovered in 
Club Rooms 

Wallack Breaks Up 
Juco Gambling Joint 

"Long Jim" Ledgerwood and "Gun- 
Moll Marg" Austin were corraled by 
"I get my man" Wallack after a four 
day chase that led through six states 
(counting Kansas twice.) The local 
convicts have been operating a night 
club and gambling ring without a lis- 
cense. 

The "Gruesome Twosome," as they 
are locally known, were apprehended 
late yesterday while trying to make 
their get-away on a motorcycle. Dean 
"Glamorous" Galle was instrumental 
in the catch in that he was run over 
by the motorcycle and was tangled in 
the spokes. "I get my man"Wallack 
stated that the two should be put in 
the same cell, in that they were equal- 
ly guilty. 

The Juco ( ? ) couple have been op- 
erating under the supervision of K. 
Jelsey Day. 

Their headquarters was discovered 
in a secret room leading from the 
dumb-waiter (no we don't mean Mel- 
vin Endicott) just off the college club 
rooms. 

While raiding the joint with the as- 
sistance of "Little Bill" Marrs, "Late" 
Charles Early, Tommy "The Voice" 
Copeland, and Forrest "Trees" Mus- 
son, "I get my man" discovered some 
local talent in their night club floor 
show. As punishment for the actors, 
Wallack ordered them to put on the 
show for him. 

Local talent discovered in floor show. 
Marjorie "Bubbles" Crabtree, a 
newly discovered star, performed her 
bubble dance which was interupted 
by a paper wad. "Bubbles" was jailed 
on indecent exposure. 

Rosemary "Gypsy" Warren per-

Sue "WOW" Ledeker, the cigar- 
cigarette girl, sold the group loaded 
cigarettes, after which all that Lael 
"Slick" Smith could say was, "WOW." 
The "Blues" Singer of the club was 
Mildred "Hot" Freese. She sang "I 
Got the Blues," upon which everyone 
present started sobbing with her. 

Upon regaining consciousness, Dean 
Galle declared a four day holiday

would clear up the rubble of the night 
club after Doris "DDT" Deets fum-

Music Ma 
No. 1 B 



flare 
On B. U. Campus 

With the 'Music Makers" yet a year 
old, they have won national acclaim, 
and recently were voted the number 
one dance orchestra of the year by 
"Upbeat", America's leading music 
periodical. 

The "Music Makers" are now in 
rank and file on the B. U. campus in 
Arkansas City, Kansas. 

This fine band after winning the 
state music contest were presented 
with $1500 and round trip tickets to 
Radio City, New York where their 
sweet music and specil acts by Jack 
Rine, and wife Marjorie were so well 
liked that they were voted the No. 1 
college dance orchestra in Americe. 

The "Upbeat" went on to say in 
their publications that the dance feats 
of the Rines were the best seen since 
the days of Buffalo Bill and Calamity 
Jane. Jack opens the act as he comes 
out dressed in a strong man's costume, 
after displaying his great strength 
wits heavy weights, he thes tosses his 
wife around in one of the most coor- 
dinated and death defying acts of all 
times. 

This terrific orchestra includes 
such well known names as Teddy 
Buckland, trumpet; Jackie Stahl, alto 
sax; Merlo Johnson, trombone; Ossie 
Thomas, tenor sax; Joe "Mousetrap" 
Avery, trumpet; and "Doc" McCall, 
drums; all of them make up the or- 
chestra that won first in the enter- 
tainment field for the year 1946. 

There are rumors that this fine or- 
chestra may consider playing for the 
Tigerama, think of it, the "Music 
Makers" playing for our college 
dance.

Austin-Munyon Wed 
In Woodwork Shop 

In a very impressive altogether 
TOO informal wedding, Miss Margery 
Austin became the blushing (!) bride 
of the Mr. Warren Lee Munyon. The 
scene of the crime — uh, the wedding 
— was the woodwork shops ofthe 
public schools. 

The bride was attractively gowned 
in a burple dress very ornately decor- 
ated with wood curls, I mean seed 
pearls. Her veil was of sheerest il- 
lusion held together by nails con- 
veniently located in the brides' head. 
Her shoes were wooden. 

Only attendants at the wedding 
were flower boys Don Burkarth and 
Bub Yates, who preceeded Margery 
down the aisle. The distributed saw-

George "Pretty Boy" Ward 
Right Hand Man for Influence 

Coach "Bunt" Spear, alias "influ-

College was caught with five of his 
students in a raid for liquor on his 
farm, south of the city, last night by 
the local police headed by Sgt. Herb 
Thompson. 

The raid took place eleven p. m. All 
the gang was being taken to the clean-

which he is noted. 

Liquor was found throughout the 
house and the six will be held until

Play Cast 
Gives Fine 
Performance 



The three-act comedy, "You and 
I," by Philip Barry was presented be- 
fore a large audience Friday night 
in the junior high auditorium. This 
was the annual dramatic production 
of the junior college speech class, di- 
rected by Miss Pauline B. Sleeth. 

An outstanding job of characteri- 
zation was done by Don Duncan as 
the young architect, Rickey White, 
who had a difficult time choosing 
between his career and love. 

His understanding father, who had 
had a similar experience when a 
young man, and his sympathetic 
mother were skillfully portrayed by 
Roy Hadley and Melba Thompson. 

Rickey's young sweetheart, Ron- 
nie, was superbly presented by Rose- 
mary Warren. 

Jack Stahl, cast as a prominent, 
prosperous self-made businessman, 
cleverly brought subtle comedy to 
the stage. 

More comedy was added in the 
character of Etta, the White house- 
hold maid, which was excellently in- 
terpreted by Marjorie Nugen. 

Don Terrill aptly characterized a 
family friend and novelist who was 
not quite satisfied with his choice of 
a life work. 

A musical ensemble of junior col- 
lege and high school students, di- 
rected by William Johnson, played 
several selections preceding the play 
and between acts. 

Prologue for the comedy was giv- 
en by Genevieve Goff. Others assist- 
ing in the production were Rosalee 
Jones and Iris Rahn, advertising; 
Marjorie Crabtree and Jack Rine, 
business managers'; Beulah Marshall, 
Iris Rahn and Mrs. Ned Pratt, cos- 
tumes; Betty Ann Pearson and Ann 
McAdam, properties; Warren Smith 
and Paul Wallack, electricians, and 
Gerald Fetterolf, John Wimer, Phil 
Smith and George McCullough, stage 
assistants. 



Officers from the National Guard 
Unit, Company K, 137th Infantry, 
have been in the office of the State 
Guard Armory from 7:30 to 9:00,

Teacher Shortage 
To Remain Critical 
In Kansas 

Figures tabulated by the Kansas 
State Chamber of Commerce indicate 
that the shortage of teachers in the 
state of Kansas is by no means being 
relieved. 

In Kansas, during 1945-46, 4668 
"emergency teachers" took the places 
of 4668 qualified teachers who gave 
up teaching for better jobs or went 
to other states where higher stand- 
ards of certification and effective 
state financial support guaranteed 
better salaries and teaching condit- 
ions. 

The teachers' college enrollment in 
the nation fell from approximately 
113,000 in 1942-43, to an estimated 
65,000 in 1945-46. This means that 
the now extisting shortage of teach- 
ers, throughout the rest of the United 
States as well as Kansas, will not be 
alleviated in the near future, because 
those graduating annually and re- 
ceiving teaching certificates can hard- 
ly counterbalance the number of 
teachers retiring from the teaching 
profession or moving into other pro- 
fessions. 

In Kansas, 1943 there were 1230 
college students eligible to teach but 
of this number many did not, while 
in 1946 only 743 were capable of ac- 
ceptance in the teaching profession. 

The Kansas State Chamber of Com- 
merce believes that this serious pro- 
blem can be met if the state will as- 
sume its share of the costs of the 
schools. This year, on a $45,000,000 
school program the state of Kansas 
will provide less than $2,000,000 from 
state sources which can be used by 
communities to supplement local 
g-eneral property taxes for schools. 
They are recommending that at least 
$12,500,000 of state money from 
sources other than the general pro- 
perty tax be distributed to the school 
systems of Kansas.

THE BASEMENT BUZZ 



Hello again! 

First of all, here's a great big bou- 
quet for the cast of "You and I." 
They all really did swell, and wasn't 
Don Duncan a wonderful guitarist? 

Did you catch any polar bear's 
Johnny Hart? He says that's how 
he hurt his loot last week. Uh 
huh! 



Aha! We've really got you this 
time. In case some of you Juco chil- 
luns forgot a few of the things you 
did in high school — we've dug up 
some reminders. The source, of 
course, was Jones' and Schlesinger's 
"Katti Korner," Ark Light, 1944-45. 



Fer instance, remember back in 
the good ole days when Becky Rine 
was a poet? Here's a result — 
They teSl me love words, so 

few but oh so sweet 
Are extemporaneous, 
Hut the notes which have 

sounded in niy ears 
*Tave all been barbarous. 



Oh What You Said 

And then there was the time 
when the question of the week was 
"How do you tell your girl good- 
night?" and Mark Porch replied, 
"You don't just SAY goodnight — 
ACTIONS speak louder than words!"

light brown hair,blue eyes, and a won- 
derful smile. He rates baseball as his 
favorite sport, but he doesn't do a bad 
job on the basketball court. His favor- 
ite "like" is his wife, and his pet peeve 

there is none isn't that a-

MEET MISS CO-ED— 

Our co-ed of the week came to us 
this semester from K. U. She's a good- 
natured, sharp looking brunette, 5'7" 
weighs 122% pounds, has sparkling 
brown eyes, and really likes ACJC 
(plug). Her favorite sports are swim- 
ming and dancing. Glen Miller's "Star 
Dust" is the tune she calls tops. Her 
pet word is "sewersly" (seriously to 
you). This freshman is majoring in 
Inter-American Affairs and plans to 
enroll in the University of Mexico for 
the summer session. In case you have- 
n't already guessed who the gal is— 
Carolyn Hill is the name. 



come in handy for a couple of Juco 
students lately. Sneller said, "I fell 
out of bed and got hit in the eye 
with a pillow." 



In October, 1944 the records show 
that Lenna Payton's favbrite pas- 
time was milking the neighbor's 
goat. Right, Lenna? 



Looks like this was a joke around 
that part of the dark ages: 
Hickory Dickory Dock 
Two niice ran up the clock 
The clock struck one — 
But the other one got away. 



Did you all know the only Bull- 
dog injury at Pratt was when Er- 
nest Taton bit his tongue? That was 
in September 19 44, of course. 



Then just last year Rosemary 
Skinner got her tongue twisted just 
a leetle bit! When asking for a com- 
pass she said, "May I borrow your 
circumference?" 



Danny Stark: "And when she 
laughed, something inside me" just 
crinkled up and DIED!" 'Member 
the play, "Every Family Has 
One?" 



An Indian girl recently won a 
beauty contest. Her name was Pret- 
ty Bear. We haven't seen a beauty 
contest winner yet that wasn't.

The Feminine Touch 

by Rahn 

Spring has really sprung ,this 
time, we hope! 

Miss Davis seems to think so any- 
way, she is giving us the good (?) 
old spring workout. Tennis is tops 
on our list of activities in gym these 
days, and sunburns run a close sec- 
ond. At least for me they do. 

So far we have been pinging, 
chasing balls, pinging, and chasing 
balls. Any day we expect the com- 
mand to start keeping score, groan. 

Last Thursday some of the kids 
were fooled; they were taken to the 
north courts in a car, but no one 
went to get them, so they had to 
walk back. Kinda late weren't you, 
Nadine? 

Miss Davis really has a system 
fixed up, though. If anyone is ab- 
sent from class, she has to challenge 
someone else on the list to a game. 
By the way, if anyone likes to chase 
balls, let Rahn know and she will 
challenge her to a struggle. 

I think I will quit for now, but 
before I do, just remember — don't 
let spring fever get you down. It's 
awfully hard to get back up after 
it does, I KNOW!!

For Second Win 

The Tiger netmen, displaying

The best match of the afternoon 
was the victory of Bill Smith over 
Black of El Dorado. After Smith 
had a 5-2 lead on Black in the first 
set, Smith dropped it 5-7, but he ral- 
lied to defeat the El Doradoan 6-4,

The Tigers registered the other 
victories with little trouble. "Chuck"

Rescues Track & 
Tennis Teams 

On the morning of April 8, at 9 a. 
m., the track and tennis teams start- 
ed to Coffeyville in the school bus to 
enter the Coffeyville Invitational 
scheduled for that date. 

At 9:20, Dean K. R. Galle came 
into the journalism classroom and 
told Paul Johnson the office had just 
received a telegram that the meet 
had been postponed due to the rainy 
weather. 

So — three members of the journal- 
ism class jumped into a car to over- 
take the bus and save the rough ride 
to Coffeyville in the "Blue Streak" 
(school bus). 

When the rescuers arrived about 
12 miles east of the city, they found 
Jack Rine under the bus jacking it 
up to change a tire which had blown 
out and nearly thrown the bus into 
the ditch. Coach "Bunt" Speer was 
supervising the job while some mem- 
bers of the teams watched and oth- 
ers ran over the hills, carefree and 
contented until they heard the news 
of an ordered return to Ark City. 

A-fter sufficient tools and labor 
were obtained from the rescuers the 
teams returned home without a 
chance for victory of any kind, and 
+ o attend their classes.

Students Provide 
Great Assistance 
In Campaign Drive 

Arkansas City is going "to have a 
new junior college-trade school 
building. At least partially respon- 
sible for this future institution are 
several members of the faculty and 
numerous college students, who 
spent a week of intensive effort on 
the project. Voters approved the 
bond issue in the April 1 election by 
a vote of 1942 to 982. 

Prior to dismissal of classes for 
the city-wide canvass Thursday, 
* larch 27, a short assembly was held 
for final campaign instructions. Supt. 
C. E. St. John explained to the stu- 
dent body the method of presenting 
the issue before the public; Dean K. 
R. Galle explained the pamphlet and 
picture magazine which were given 
to the potential voter; P. M. John- 
son cited several groups and indi- 
viduals for their work on the can- 
vass; Gene Bell and Doug McCall 
passed out the pamphlets and urged 
the students to report the results as 
soon as they had completed their al- 
lotted districts. 

In a radio program given Thurs- 
day for the purpose of promoting the 
campaign, A. E. Maag and Gene Bell 
interviewed over the air graduates 
of the junior college, including Lee 
Circle, j. c. '27; Miss Georgia Long, 
j. m. '31, and Donald Hickman, j. c. 
'31. All- three explained the need 
for a new college building and urged 
voters to cast their ballots in favor 
of the bond issue. 

Speakers on the sound truck which 
toured the city urging people to sup- 
port the bond issue Tuesday, April 1 
were John Skinner, George McCul- 
longh, Kermit Sandefur, and Gene 
Bell. Members of the band which 
accompanied the speakers on the 
truck were Bill Johnson, Elwood 
Keller, Oscar Thomas, Joe Avery, 
and Ted Buckland. Art students 
who made signs for the truck were 
Harold White, Rosemary Skinner, 
Betty Sanderson, Dan Stark, jr., Bet- 
ty Pratt. Nadine Johnson, and Jewel- 
deen Colbert. John Skinner was in 
charge of the project.

Proof of the actual arrival of 
spring is now available ! The red 
bud tree at the southern en- 
trance of Carrow Court is now 
in full bloom. This, perhaps, is 
more positive evidence than the 
usual "spring- fever" and ques- 
tionable absences, that have 
here-to-fore been prevalent.

Tiger Track 
Team Downs 
Coffeyville 

The juco track team, under the 
tutelage of Coach "Bunt" Speer, 
opened the 19 47 track season April 
9, on a wet and muddy field in a 
dual meet with Coffeyville and the 
Tigers scored a 62 to 60 victory over 
the Red Ravens. 

Both teams were hampered from 
making good records, due to the wet 
field. 

Bud Chaplin paced the Arks 
with 15 points as he swept both hur- 
dle events and the pole vault. Bill 
Walz and Earl Grinnell were next 
high for the Tigers, as they tallied 
10 and 9 points respectively. 

Malcolm Smith turned in one of 
the best individual performances of 
the meet as he turned on the steam 
and defeated Lair of Coffeyville in 
the half-mile event, after Lair led 
him most of the way. His time of 
2:04.5 was considered fast on the 
muddy field.

W. G. "Bunt" Speer has been re- 
assigned by the school board to 
coach juco football and track. He 
will also be in charge of basketball 
unless another person can be found 
to relieve him of that position. 



Ah, there's good news today. We 
hear that James Coker and John 
Marshall have enrolled for ACJC 
next year and will probably be in the 
grid line-up. 



Here's our official congratulations 
to the Tiger tennis team. They 
made fine showings against the El

Also, we don't want to leave out the

Tiger Tennis Team 
Wins Opener 8-1 

The powerful juco racqueteers had 
little trouble in winning their first 
dual match from Tonkawa, April 3, 
on the Wilson park courts, as they 
took eight out of the nine matches 
playea. 

In the No. 1 singles match Chuck 
Hutchinson, Tiger ace, downed C. 
White in the feature attraction, 4-6, 
6-1, 6-0. 

Other singles matches saw May- 
nard "'Sonny" Selan defeating Kelly 
of Tonkawa, 6-4, 6-2; Doug McCall, 
breezing through E. White, 6-0, 6-1; 
Bill Smith losing the only match of 
the day in a tight battle with Stan- 
ford, after going three sets, 9-7, 3-6, 
3-6; Norman Byers winning over 
Ogg, 6-3, 6-2; and Willie "Os" 
Thomas defeating Glen Thomas, 6-1, 
6-4. 

The Tigers wasted little time in 
making a clean sweep of the dou- 
bles, as Hutchinson and McCall 
blasted Kelly and Stanford, 6-3, 6-3; 
Selan and Smith stopped E. White 
and C. White 6-1, 6-3; and Thomas 
teamed with Byers to trounce G. 
Thomas and Ogg, 6-2, 6-2. 

The Tigers displayed vicious pow- 
er and strength in their opener and 
should be expected to give their op- 
position plenty of headaches in their 
future tilts.

nocently started to enter a room clear- 
ly marked "Chorus girls' dressing

present day literature was reviewed. 
Paul Wallack was announcer for the 
program. 

April 15, the high school chorus un- 
der the direction of Charles Hinchee

Dear Student Body: 

With the successful school year 
coming to a close, the Student Council 
wishes to express to all students a 
sincere thanks for the fine support 
which assured this success. Many 
schools are finding student coop- 
eration low since the war. We are 
proud we are not on this list The Stu- 
dent Council of ACJC credits the stu- 
dents alone for the swell cooperation 
this year. Thanks, students, for a 
swell job. — The Student Council 



As the end of this last semester 
rolls around, college students find that 
they are losing two members of the 
school system. They are C. E. St. 
John, Superintendent of the city 
sehools, and Marion IVes, high school 
and junior college home economics 
instructor. 

Superintendent St. John, who sub- 
mitted his resignation in February, 
will retire August 1, after 29 years of 
exemplary service to the school sys- 
tem. 

Miss IVes resigned her position on 
the faculty this spring, as she plans 
to be married in June, and will attend 
Kansas University next year. 

So here's "So long, Farewell, Bon 
Voyage, Goodbye" and all that stuff 
to two really swell people. 

Coach "Bunt" Speer's juco Tiger 
tracksters received a 74-51 trounc- 
ing at the hands of the Independence 
Pirates, May 1, at Independence. 

Handicapped by the temporary 
loss of two regular winners, Bud 
Chaplin, who was out due to a pulled 
muscle, and their main weight man, 
out because of scholastic ineligibi 
lity, the Tigers won the century dash, 
440, 880, high jump, and the broad 
jump while they lost nine other events. 



THE BASEMENT BUZZ 



The barkeep of a downtown tavern 
kept a pet parrot. One evening a 
drunk spotted it, climbed atop a stool, 
and tried to catch hold of it. "Scram, 
landlubber," shrieked the outraged 
pol. "What's the big idea?" 

The drunk looked surprised, tipped 
his hat, and mumbled, "Golly, I'm 
■orry, mister! I thought you was a 
bold!" 



First of all here's congratulations 
to Jack Stafford, freshman class presi- 
dent, on his recent engagement to 
Lois Elton. Nice going Jack? 



ing," The paper said "I've Been Wait- 
ing". 



The pogo stick brigade is on. Par- 
ticipants in this dangerous sport are 
Bob Ruple, Del Allen, Don Burkarth 
and Homer Livingston. If you don't 
believe it's dangerous, why do you 
suppose they all have those big bumps 
on their heads? 



Nope, Barbara Lefler didn't get her 
black eye and banged up head from 
the pogo stick — she goes around fal- 
ling out of cars instead. Guess that'll 
teach you to sit clear over by the 
door, Barb! 

QUOTES *N STUFF 
Miss Weisgerber: Well I'd better get 
off that subject — everybody's going to 
sleep. 

Gene Bell: If I told you what 1 want 
you to volunteer for you wouldn't 
volunteer. 

Miss Ives: My curves aren't like other 
curves (grade scale curves, she 
means). 

Ethel Harvey: Can't fool me, those 
weren't violets — that was rain! Mr. 
Galle (In economics) Figures don't lie. 

Seems as though the current lit- 
erature class was pretty surprised 
when they read in the paper about 
their radio program, "I've Been Read- 



Before the wedding ceremony, a 
nervous bridegroom asked the preach- 
er, "Is it kisstomary to cuss the bride ? 
The preacher answered dryly, "Not 
yet — after a while." 

We hear that Pearson had quite 
th slumber party bout two weeks ago. 
But what we can't figure out is why 
was Payton so stingy with her sand- 
wich? 



Betty Jones: I try to keep my head 

above water. 

Ann McAdam: Well, wood floats. 



Miss Pauline Sleeth was trying 
diligently last week to hammer the 
principal parts of irregular verbs in- 
to certain almost solid juco heads 
but she got an almost unanimous, 
though unsolicited response when she 
presented the following verbless sen- 
tences for completion: 

"My dog — on the rug." 

"Yesterday my dog — on my best 
chair." 



How do you like Homer Livings- 
ton's new paint job on his convert- 
ible? Isn't that a pretty shade of 
blue? 

Well, better get going, remember 
only two more weeks to go. 



The Feminine Touch 

by Rahn 

Rain, rain, go away, us little gals 
want to play — out of doors! 

Most of our gym class is taken in- 
doors since last time. Badminton 
seems to be the most popular game. 
It has also been the cause of many 
sore arms for the past two weeks. 
Miss Davis is really giving us the old 
one-two. 

Tenpins, bowling to you, has also 
been expirimented with in the good 
old Aud. Gym., although the floors 
might not hold out for very long. 

Although badminton is the favorite 
of the games, Miss Davis complains 
of us tearing up the birds (shuttle- 
cocks.) 

Say — how about those Juco boys 
that were watching us ping at tennis 
one day? Your face wasn't red after 
Miss Davis chased you out, was it, 
Bud? 

Ah yes, tennis! Miss Davis claims 
that "Rosie" Warren and Rahn were 
just playing around the other day — 
well??? 

Nough said, Adios. 



Christian Association 
Plans Vesper Picnic 
Gives Donations 

A report on donations to worthy 
institutions and plans for an evening 
vesper service were given at the Jun- 
ior College Christian Association 
meeting held April 21. 

The group has given the total of 
$100 to various organizations, $30 
to both the Red Cross and the Cancer 
drive, and $40 to the European Res- 
toration. 

The group planned to have an even- 
ing vesper service and a picnic at 
Spring Hill at their next meeting, 
which will be on May 5. The com- 
mittee in charge is composed of Ger- 
ald Fetterolf, Gene Bell, Erma Mar- 
shall, and Genevieve Golf. 

The opening prayer was given by 
Sam Grain. Group singing was led by 
Erma Marshall accompanied by Con- 
nie Brown. Lael Smith gave thescrip- 
ture reading. 

A book review, "People of the Mid- 
dle Ages" was given by Doris Deets, 
with Janet Brown telling the story, 
"The Cult of Many". 

The closing prayer was given by 
Miss Pauline B. Sleeth.

Cooking Students 
Learn To Prepare 
And Serve Meals 

Have you wondered who is re- 
sponsible for those tantalizing aromas 
^ that come from Room 5? It is the 
ingenious work of the junior college 
foods class under the supervision of 
Miss Marion Ives. 

The class not only learns to plan 
and prepare th meals but also to serve 
them in an attractive manner. The 
three styles of service they are learn- 
ing and practicing this semester are 
the Family Style, Russian Style and 
the Compromise Style, which is a com- 
bination of both. 

On the days the girls prepares the 
food, the class is devided in half — half 
are designed as the "cooks" and the 
other half as the "family". The 
"cooks" must prepare and serve the 
meal that is planned by the "family". 
The only difficulty they encounter is 
getting the food to the dining room 
from the kitchen the halls are al- 
ways lined with hungry, grabbing 
people! 

This week, if th weather permits, 
the class will pack a picniclunch and 
go to ParisPark for their meal. One 
member of the class stated, "We hope 
to learn the trick of keeping the ants 
out of our food as well as how to 
spread our lunch!" 

Another project for the future is a 
field trip. The purpose of this trip 
will be to instruct the girls in select- 
ing the proper kitchen equipment, 
china, and silverware. 

Here are the girls you fellas better 
keep an eye on 'cause they're learnin' 
to cook!, Mary Kay Burkarth, Cath- 
erine Carter, Alice Craft, Diane Dan- 
ley, Pat Garland, Mildred Freese, 
Ethel Harvey, Elizabeth Ousley, Bet- 
ty Ann Pearson, Betty Smith, Mil- 
dred Wagner, and June Work. 

Students Hear 
Speaker on India 

Dr. Sripati Chandra- Sekhar, a 
young Hindu economist, spoke to the 
junior college assembly April 16. "The 
Problems That Confronts the New 
India,, was the topic the lucid wit- 
ty speaker chose. He is the son of a 
prominent Indian educator and has 
been closely associated with Indian 
affairs for many years. 

Dr. Chandra-Sekhar is making a 
two weks tour in Kansas under the 
direction of the Tnstute of Internation- 
al Relations. Guy T. Gebbardt, execu- 
tive secretary of the West Central 
Area office, introduced the speaker. 



Red Ravens Give 
Juco Netmen 1st 
Defeat 4 to 2 

A bewildered juco Tiger tennis 
team was handed its first loss of the 
season by the surprisingly strong 
Coffeyville Red Ravens, who defeated 
the Arks 4 to 2, in a dual match play- 
ed her April 25. 

The Ravens, who have only one 
clay tennis court, brought their rack- 
etters to Ark City after the original 
scheduled match at Coffeyville was 
called off due to wet weather. 

Since the Ravens first matches had 
been rained out, they were deter- 
mined to have victory to their credit 
before the season closed, so the blood- 
thristy Birds took their revenge on 
the amazed Tigers, who expected 
little trouble from the Easterners. 

In the No. 1 singles, "Chuck Hutch- 
inson, after losing the first set did 
not rally in his usual manner, and 
Tongier, the Ravens ace, defeated 
him, 6-2, 6-3. 

"Lefty" Doug McCall won the Arks' 
only singles match, as he blasted 
Niswonger, 7-5, 9-7. 

In the other singles played, Bill 
Smith lost to Levy, 1-6, 6-1, 6-0; and 
Maynard Selan was defeated by Hall 
6-2, 7-5. 

In the doublas, Hutchinson and Mc- 
Call teamed together to whip Levy 
and Niswonger, 6-2,- 6-4, and Long- 
ier and Hall of Coffeyville downed 
Selan and Smith, 6-3, 6-1. 

This was the Arks' first loss in 
five starts. 



Rine Rooters 
Win Contest 

Rine's Rough Rooters beat Crab- 
tree's Crazy Creatures in a contest 
held in the speech class for ticket sell- 
ing for th Juco play and losers paid 
the penalty April 28, when they gave 
the winners a hamburger fry at a 
cabin on Grouse Creek. 

About 45 students and guests at- 
tended. 

The evening was spent in stuffing 
themselves with hamburgers^ onions, 
potato salad, deviled eggs, pickles, 
potato chips and pop. 

Dancing and singing kept the par- 
ty lively. 

"I felt it my duty to let Jack win 
because we can throw a better party 
than he can," explained Marjorie when 
asked how Jack happened to win the 
contest. The play fund paid for the 
picnic. 



The Spanish club met April 14, in 
the music room. The members sang 
Spanish songs and then adjourned 
to the junior college clubroom where 
a short business meeting was held. 



You must have heard about the 
man who discovered a tombstone on 
which was engraved, "Here lies a 
lawyer and an honest man," and 
whose comment was, "Ground sure 
must be scarse in this cemetery. I- 
magine burying two men in a single 
grave!"

Year, 18 Months? 

Construction on the new junior 
college-trade school building will be- 
gin as soon as materials become a- 
vailable Dean K. R. Galle said last 
week. He expressed the belief # that 
these materials will be available 
within the next year or 18 months. 

William Schmidt, Oklahoma arch- 
itect, is now working on the comple- 
tions of the Tiger Taleswere made by 
Drawings illustrated in earlier edi- 
tins of the Tiger Tales were made by 
Carl Holman.

rooms in the new building will be 
consulted before the plans are com- 
pleted. This will enable them to have 
facilities in accordance with their 
neds.

McCall And Hutchinson 
Win State Doubles; 
Track Team Takes 6th 

The Tiger tennis and track squads 
ended their 1947 spring sports cam- 
paign with the state meet at El Do- 
rado last Saturday, as "Chuck" Hutch- 
inson and "Doug" McCall won the 
state juco conference doubles crown 
in tennis and the tracksters placed 
sixth. 

Hutchinson and McCall, ranking 
Tiger netmen, had little trouble in 
winning the doubles crown. After 
drawing a first round bye, they bree- 
zed past Black and Heston of El Do- 
rado, 6-2, 6-1, then defeated Levy and 
Nihwonger of Coffeyville, 6-2, 6-2, in 
the finals. 

Coach Bunt Speer's track squad 
finished sixth in the 10-school field 
with 18 points. The squad was ham- 
pered without the services of Bud 
Chaplin star hurdler and pole vaul- 
ter, who was out due to injury. 

The Tigers only first points came 
when Malcolm Smith romped home 
on the 880 yard run, far ahead of all 
other competitors in the fast time of 
2; 01. 8. 

Maynard Selan, Tiger netman, was 
eliminated in the semi-finals in the 
state singles by Gouldy of Independ- 
ence. Gouldy lost in the finals to Ton- 
gier, of Coffeyville, 6-2, 6-0, to give 
Coffeyville a share in the tennis title. 

Other Tiger track points came on 
a second place in the 440 yard dash 
by Warren Work, a third in the 220 
yard low hurdle by Earl Grinell, a 
tie for fifth with Independence by 
the mile relay team, and a second 
place tie in the high jump by McVay 
and three others.

ference entries but Independence and

Arkansas City Junior College 



Why a new junior college-trade school for Arkansas City? 



War veterans and a permanent increase in the demand for a college education supply the need 
for an expanded, enlarged, and improved college building. 

Present college classes meet in the basement of the already over-crowded High School. 

Arkansas City needs vocational training for its youth — present machine, printing, wood- 
working, sheet metal, and agriculture shops are entirely inadequate, homemaking courses 
are hopelessly stymied. 



Vv hat Joes Arkansas City gain? 



Better trained youth! Trained not only in academic courses but also in trade courses such as 
Metal Working, Automotive Repair, Carpentry, Home Management. 

Present college enrollment is 250 — many are ex-GFs and boarding students — they spend 
their money in Arkansas City. 

Veterans alone now attending the junior college receive a total GI benefit of more than 
$10,000 per month, all of which is spent locally. 

With a new building and an increased number of courses, as proposed, the Junior College 
enrollment could be doubled! 



Can Arkansas City afford it? 



Interest rates on school bonds are now only 1^4% — formerly they were 4*4% to 5% — a 
saving of $3,500 a year on each $100,000. 

£ Present school debt is only $54,000 and will be entirely paid in six years. 

9 To pay off the $350,000 bond issue in 10 years will require a levy of only 3 mills ; to pay off in 
15 years, a levy of 2 mills each year; or to pay off in 20 years will require a levy of 1^ mills. 
Interest payments will require less than 14 mill.
