New Superintendent 

Tiger Tales Editor 

Duana Boswell, freshman, has been 
selected editor of the Tiger Tales, Ar- 
kansas City Junior College official stu- 
dent paper. Assisting with the publica- 
tion is Duane Cline, who is associate 
editor. Joyce Childs has been named 
circulation manager. 

Reporters are Jeri Acton, Joyce 
Childs, Bill Coulter, Rosemary Long- 
shore, and Edna Robson. 

The Tiger Tales office has been set 
up in the basement room adjoining the 
hall leading to the clubroom. 

Due to the lack of experienced lino- 
type operators in the school print shop, 
the Tiger Tales is being printed by The 


Dorothy Haslett and Georgia Ann 
Rahn, freshmen, resumed class work 
Monday after a week spent at the State 
Fair in Hutchinson, Kansas. 


Are you sure you've got enough grade 
points to transfer to another college or 
university with advanced standing? It 
you aren't, pay 'tention ! ! 

In order tor a student to be recom- 
mended for advanced standing, he must 
have at least an average of a C.A "C" 
average means that his grade points 
must be equal to the number of hours 
credit earned. 

The grades are averaged by the point 
system, whereby each hour credit with 
a grade of A counts three grade points. 
Each hour credit with a grade of B 
counts two grade points. Each hour 
credit with a grade of C counts 1 grade 
point and each hour with a grade of D 
couts no grade points. An hour with a 
grade of F subtracts 1 grade point. 

If a grade of an A is received in a 
five hour course, he has earned 15 
grade points, a grade of a B, 10 grade 
points; a grade of C, 5 grade points, 
and a grade of an F subtracts 5 grade 
points from the total earned. 

Absences which are necessary, are 
either excused or unexcused. The only 
type of absence which is excused is that 
which is due to illness, or the death of 
a relative or close friend. In such cases, 
the student is given the privilege of 
making up the work missed, provided he 
obtains a written permit from the office

Turner Elected 
Student Council 

Politics raged hot and heavy last 
week as the "Underground College" 
staged the election for class officers. 

After a close contest for student coun- 
cil president, Jim Turner, sophomore 
nominee, defeated Elwood Keller, who 
was nominated by the freshman class. 

Jack Miller and Ernest Taton were 
named presidents of the freshman and 
sophomore classes. 

Rodney Wilson was elected vice pres- 
ident of the sophomores. Bud Chaplin 
the secretary-treasurer, and James Mc- 
Cormick, Roy Hadley and Rebecca Rine, 
student council representatives. 

Other freshman officers are Wayne 
Estus, vice president; Barbara Wahler, 
secretary-treasurer; and Jack Warren, 
David Hearne, and Virginia Banks, stu- 
dent council representatives. 

Other sophomore candidates were 
Keith Hearne and Mark Porch for 
president, Jack Stafford and Bob Law- 
son for vice president, and Malcolm 
Smith and Rosemary Warren as nom- 
inees for secretary-treasurer. Sopho- 
more candidates for student council 
representatives were Nadine Johnson, 
Dick Kelly, and Ethel Harvey. 

Other freshman nominees included 
Bill Mitchell and Jeri Acton for pres- 
ident, Janell Estep and Georgia Rahn, 
vice president; Ann Roehl and Charles 
Tanner, secretary-treasurer; and James 
Austin, Filson Day, and Marvin Wilhite 
for student council representatives. 

The freshman candidates for student 
council president nominee were Rex 
Howe and Rebecca Rine. Other sopho- 
more nominees for this office were Nor- 
man Byers and Peggy Sullivan. 

immediately upon his return to school. 
Permits will not be issued two or three 
days late, unless due to unavoidable 
circumstances. Such work must be made 
up within a reasonable length of time, 
otherwise a grade of zero will be re- 
corded for the days missed. 

In case of other legitimate reasons 
for absence from class, as many ab- 
sences as there are semester hours 
credit in the course may be allowed. 
Thus, in a five hour course, five un- 
excused absences may be allowed. Three 
tardies count as one unexcused absence. 
A student who is late to class must re- 
port to the instructor at the close of a 
class period. The instructor is not held 
responsible for changing an absence 
mark to a tardy, unless the student re- 
ports at the close of a class period.

Let's Keep Our 
Clubroom Neat 

Need rest and relaxation? That's 
what it's for. Have to have a place to 
work? That's what it's for. Want a 
place to wait for the next class? That's 
what it's for. 

And. you say, just what and where 
is this marvelous thing? Well, fellow 
students — 

Tucked neatly in the corner of the 
basement is a large room known as the 
Arkansas City Junior College Club- 
room. This room has been, for our use 
and enjoyment, equipped with ping 
pong, cards solas, chairs, magazines, a 
phonograph, and records. 

Accompanying the privilege of using 
this room comes our responsibility ol 
keeping it neat. That means no scrap 
papers on the floor, no pencil marks 
on the furniture, and no broken equip- 

So come now, don't let other stu- 
dents get all the enjoyment out of 
those boogie and classical records, don't 
let someone else wear out all the ping 
pong balls and above all, don't let any 
one leave dirt and muss around the 
room. Get in the swing! Use the club- 
room ! 

Meet Miss Co-Ed 

If you happen to meet a tall slender 
girl coming down the hall and think 
that you just saw her going in the other 
direction, don't rush off to a psychia- 
trist. You're just seeing LaGyne Haw- 
kins, and her twin sister, RaGyne. 

Ludge was born on August 14. 19 29. 
This 18-year-old miss is 5 feet 9 inches 
tall with dark brown curly hair and 
dark eyes. 

During her junior and senior years 
in high school, she attended Mount 
Carmel Girls Academy in Wichita. 

Among her likes are sloppy Joes and 
Dr. Pepper (plug), and "For Sentimen- 
tal Reasons."

ent, going to school in Chicago. He is a 
small guy, onlj 6 feet 1 inch tall, with 
"simply gorgeous" blond hair and blue 

Any time she isn't occupied with 
something else, you can find her at her 
favorite pastime, which is drawing and 
designing elm lies. On the subject of the 
new length skirls. Ludge answered. "I 
like them! Much! That is. it they don't 
get too long."

Oh. well. I can't make anything 
rhyme anyway, but you get the idea. It 
really is great to be back and see every- 
one again after three months of missing 
out on all the gossip, even if it isn't so 
much fun having to knuckle down to 
business again, isn't it?

a note about it in the box, but 
please sign your name in case more 
details are needed.

winning the first encounter of the sea-

to have the male population hack?

Say, did you know that there is a 
four-year-old attending juco? June 
Work hasn't bad a birthday for a long 
time it seems. Technically she is 18. 
but she won't be five until she is 20.

the room at the present though.

Fourteen Family 
Combination in Juco 

How would you like to have your 
liltle brother or sister come to the 
dinner table to tell that terrible boner 
you pulled in rhetoric or history today? 
Or are you among the sixteen family 
groups attending juco? 

Yes, there are fourteen brother-sister 
and brother-brother (oh, brother! ) com- 
binations going to school. Two families 
have four children all attending this 
same institution. Do you know them? 
They're June, Virgil, Erwin and Warren 
Work and Yvonne, Malcolm. Jack and 
Etta Jane Gardenhire, only Etta Jane 
is Mrs. Dale Wallace. 

The others only have. one brother or 
sister to dodge. They include Warren 
and Rill (Spud) Dowell. Clementine 
and Homer Fritchman, James and J. D. 
Halcomb, LaGyne and RaGyne Hawkins 
(the twins), David and Keith Hearne, 
Francie and James Heinz. Charles and 
Wallace Laughlin, Jeanne and Lynn 
Smith, Rob and Bill Sneller, Curtis and 
Rill Swaim. Charles and George Ward, 
Donald and Wayne Gribble, Richard and 
William Kelley and Clarence Osburn.

Wanted — A Name 
For an Organization 

Put on your thinking caps guys and 
gals! You may be able to help in a big 
advancement slated for sometime soon. 

When the new student council starts 
this year's proceedings, one of the first 
questions will be concerning the reor- 
ganization of the juco pep club. 

The administration is backing the 
plan to the limit but there are still a 
lot of question marks. 

Should this organization continue as 
an older edition of the high school 
club or should it branch out with a new- 
face — even a new name? Any juco stu- 
dent who has an opinion or an idea for 
a name for the club, let it be known by 
dropping a note in the Tiger Tales box 
in the college clubrooms. 

According to Mr. J. Kelsey Day, spon- 
sor of the organization, it is hoped that 
many vital changes may be incorporated 
this year. Membership may possibly be 
through application to the student coun- 

So far in the game, these and other 
ideas are only plans, but in a short time 
they will be put into practice. 

Let your choice for a name be known!

Leap Year Starts Now For 
Juco Belles With 3 to 1 Odds 

Grab your shootin' irons, Daisy Mae, 
and let's start the leap year procedure 
now. After all, why wait another three 
months for the new year when the odds 
in ACJC are three he'uns to every 
she'un! Yep, that's the story. With a 
total enrollment of 229, there are 145 
freshmen and 79 upper classmen and 5 
special students. This includes 167 
boys and 6 2 girls. 

Although the figures show odds of 
three boys to every one girl, no facts 
are available to show the number of 
males that have already entered into 
holy wedlock and have that binding 
band, the nuptial knot, on the third 
finger of the left hand. 

Seventy-nine veterans are attending 
junior college under the compliments of 
Uncle Sam and their own time in ser- 
vice. An undetermined number of the 
ex-servicemen are attending school at 
or near home at their own expense and 
will use their G.I. Bill privileges to 
attend a senior college. Beware, though, 
Jucobelle for they all only draw $65 
a month! 

H. Clementine Fritchman is the only 
ex-servicewoman to attend under the 
G.I. Bill. She served 18 months in the 
WAVES. She and her brother, Homer 
W. Fritchman, are in the brother-sister 
combination which number with the 
other family groups attending with 
servicemen's (and service women's) 
rights. The others are James F. and 
John Davis Halcomb and Clarence and 
Lawrence Osburn. 

Others attending under the veterans' 
rights are Del A. Allen, Phillip E. Bah- 
ruth, Harold H. Bair, Earl Barber,

Link Trainer 
Course Offered 
Hopeful Pilots 

"Gee, I ended up at sea level." 

"Well, there's another hour's flying 

So will be murmuring young Roger- 
willco's" as they stumble out of the 
new link trainer set up in the former 
farm shops. 

The instrumental flying machine was 
purchased last year "as army surplus 
from Tinker Field, Oklahoma City Air 
Depot. It has been stored in the athletic 
field house since its purchase. With 
three classes in session, two of them 
junior college, the trainer is expected 
to be used extensively. 

Elements of aeronautics, the junior 
college course, is a three semester hour 
credit course. Any ex-servicemen may 
use the surplus from their allottment to 
enroll in the -course, free of charge. 
However, no flying time is given unless 
the student is also flying at a local 

field. The course, however, is not lim- 
ited to former G.I.'s. 

The first class was held Sept. 15 for 
beginners. A class for those working 
on their commercial pilot's license, was 
opened Sept. 17. The latter group will 
complete their ground school require-

Dr. Vineyard Speaks 
At First Assembly 

Two assembly programs have been 
presented to the junior college students 
this year. 

First of these was held September 11, 
at which Dr. Jerry Vineyard, new sup- 
erintendent of schools, gave his intro- 
duction address. 

The students also heard speeches 
from Dr. Frederick Maier, who pre- 
sented the spiritual side of education; 
and Gerald Fetterolf, representing the 
students, who gave a brief summary of 
the school's organization and activities. 

Second of these programs was held 
September 18 at which Dean K. R. 
Galle presented rules and regulations 
which the students are to follow. 

New Juco Faculty 
Joins Student 
3 to 1 Ratio 

The junior college enrollment ratio 
of three males to every female is em- 
phasized also in the new teaching staff 
of the school. Two men have started 
teaching courses here and only one 

Miss Olive Moore, new home eco- 
nomics instructor is the only new fe- 
male teacher. Miss Moore earned her 
bachelor's degree at the College of 
Emporia and received masters degrees 
from Emporia State Teachers' college 
and Kansas State college. 

A medical WAC for six months, she 
was stationed at Santa Fe, N, M., where 
she also taught at government Indian 

Though she did not get to "see the 
world" while in the army, Miss Moore's 
hobby is traveling. She spent one sum- 
mer touring Europe. 

This handsome man's phone number 
is 9 6S. If a woman answers ask her 
about your latest assignment. That's 
the case of Forrest D. Haines, new in- 
dustrial arts instructor, and his wife. 

Haines is a graduate of A.C.J.C. and 
now his wife is also attending here. He 
earned his B. S. degree at Kansas State 
Teachers' college at Pittsburg. 

Flying tops the list of his hobbies. 
His own plane is at Pittsburg now. 

New printing instructor is Anton 
Buffo who hails from Frontenac. A 
graduate of Kansas State Teachers' . 
college this summer, this is his first 
year of teaching. This good-looking 
single ( ! ) teacher was in the navy 
during the war. His hobby is photog- 

And, of course, topping the list of 
new faculty members is Dr. Jerry J. 
Vineyard, superintendent of schools, 
who comes here from Nevada, Mo. He's 
an old-timer, though, since he has been 
here two months!

One spring day. May 28. 1925. a 
large white stork flew over Tahlequah. 
Oklahoma, dropping a bundle contain- 
ing a small pink baby. Jim Ward was 
the name selected to bestow upon this 

This infant grew until he is now a 
young man who is a frosh in the Ar- 
kansas City Junior College. He has 
grown to be 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs 
135 pounds, lias brown hair, green eyes, 
and a grin that spells personality. 

Take note, girls, he's not married, 
he's not going steady, and his favorite 
subject is women! ! When asked his 
opinion of the new dress lengths, re- 
plied, "Leave them like they are." 

Jim, who has no particularly favorite 
pastime or hobby, works as check room 
boy at the football field, since football 
is his favorite sport. 

"Hamburgers With" are Jim's fav- 
orite food, and his favorite juco subject 
is aeronautics. 

Afte finishing college, Jim plans to 
spend his time as an electrical engineer. I

Bengals Strike 
Early To Whip 

Scoring in the first quarter after a 
5 2-yard march, with Roy Hadley smash- 
ing off tackle from the 7-yard line, the 
Arkansas City Tigers won their first 
grid game of the season over the Cha- 
nute Panthers at Chanute last Friday 
night, 6 to 0. 

The game was replete with fumbles 
and penalties all the way through. The 
first Panther scoring threat came with 
Chanute recovering a fumble on the 
Tiger 8-yard line. For four downs the 
Tigers held like a stone wall and Cha- 
nute lost their chance to score. 

In the third quarter the Panthers 
again threatened by intercepting a 
Tiger pass on the Bengals' 31 yard line, 
and powered to the ?> only to lose 
the ball on downs. 

Twice in the fourth period Chanute 
muffed scoring chances. A Tiger flip 
was intercepted deep in Bengal terri- 
tory, but the ball was lost on downs on 
the four. Again the Timers fumbled on 
their 38 and Chanute advanced the ball 
to the eight as the game was over.

The college chorus group, which is 
predominantly male, is one of the few 
organizations which is in full gear. C.

meant to promote the study of foreign 

Also to be organized are the Dinner

The Arkansas City schools will be 
in charge of the coronation program 
for the sixteenth annual Arkalalah

war and a constant rain stopped some 
of last year's plans, the schedule for 
this year provides an Arkalalah with

told interesting facts and incidents in 
the composers' lives. 

He is from the Department of Con- 
certs and Lectures at the University of 
Kansas. The university is sponsoring 
his tour. 

For the first time in the history of 
the Arkansas City Junior College, the 
organization of a juco band is under- 

Backed by both K. R. Galle, dean, 
and the student council, the students 
have signed a statement saying they 
will play in a junior college band if 
one is organized. With approximately 
thirty having signed to date, there is 
still need for more members. 

An hour's credit is offered to the 
band members and plans are to have 
uniforms of some type if the band is 
a success. 

Making their first public appearance 
as a juco group, a few members of the 
band played at the Coffeyville-Arkan- 
sas City game. October 3.

Cheerleaders Are 
Selected By 
Student Council 

Rebecca Rine, sophomore, was elect- 
ed head cheerleader by the student 
council at their first business meeting 
September 25. 

Jeri Acton, Bebe Jo Louderback, and 
Virginia Banks, freshmen, and Rose- 
mary Warren, sophomore, were the new 
cheerleaders chosen at the same meet- 
ing. They made their first appearance 
at the pep assembly Friday morning 
'and again at the game with Coffeyville 
that night. 

Jeri Acton asked that the students 
be reminded how much their support 
means. "We need everybody's coopera- 
tion in yelling to raise the spirit of 
ACJC and keep the morale of the team 
high," she added. 

The girls will wear black skirts and 
white letter sweaters for awhile, but 
may have new uniforms later. 

They are working on new yells and 
are planning to reorganize some of the 
old standbys. 

Foorball Squad is 
Presented in Assembly 

Members of the Juco football squad 
were introduced to the students in a 
pep assembly prior to the Coffeyville 
game. October 3. by Coach "Bunt" 

A short radio skit in imitation of the 
Saturday afternoon broadcasts was 
presented by Bob Sneller, Janell Estep, 
and Jimmy Godfrey. 

First Juco 
Booster Club 
Is Planned 

Peggy Sullivan lias been elected 
president of the junior college booster 
club which is now under organization. 

Also elected at the first meeting 
were LaGyne Hawkins, vice-president 
and Dorothy Haslett, secretary-treas- 
urer. Lynn Smith was selected student 
council representative. Faculty sponsor 
for the group is J. Kelsey Day, science 

This organization, the first of its 
kind in Arkansas City Junior College, 
is open to all members of the student 
body and not limited to athletics, its 
purpose being the general promotion of 
activities and school prestige. 

The association is not for a cheering 
section, but to arouse interest and pep 
in all school activities. Also the club 
hopes to keep reminding the public of 
their promise for a new juco building. 

Norman Byers, chairman, Francie 
Hines, Claus Theisen, and Glen Burns 
will gather suggestions for the name 
of the club which will be voted on at 
the next meeting. A special group has 
been chosen to nominate chairmen of 
the standing committees, consisting of 
a decorating, publicity, and a stunt com- 
mittee. All members will belong to the 
committee of their choice. The consti- 
tution committee, headed by Janell 
Estep. is composed of Dorothy Haslett, 
Phil Parker, James Godfrey, and 
James Heinz. 

With no stress on the obligations of 
the individual, the membership has 
already exceeded fifty and students are 
still joining the rapidly growing or-

Now Is the Time 
For a New College 

Take a look into the future! Picture 
yourself either living in Arkansas City 
or home for a visit. While driving about 
the city you pass the high school build- 

"There is where I graduated from 
high school and junior college." you 

"But where's the college?" your 
children ask. 

Yes. WHERE is the college? Will 
the Arkansas City Junior College still 
be in the basement of the high school? 
Will ACJC still be an "underground 

Although Arkansas City voters ex- 
pressed their desire for a new modern 
junior college, no apparent steps have 
been taken to erect the building. 

Several sfdes of the issue are in view. 
Let's take a look at one. 

Many desire to wait until the ma- 
terial is cheaper. This date is not even 
"guessable." Meanwhile students still 
will be confined to the basement facil- 
ities. According; to the economic cycle, 
when prices are cheaper money will be 
more valuable so again we are in a 
vicious circle. Prices may be high now 
but money is of little value. 

NOW is the time to build the junior 
college. Students cannot be placed in 
cold storage until prices are lowered. 

Already one class will have the dis- 
grace of graduating from "basement 
university." Unless action is taken 
NOW the classes of 1948. '49. '50. '51 
and so on through the years still will be 
in the basement.

Time for Arkalalah 
Celebration Rolls 
Around 0n@@ More 

Again old man time brings us back 
to October with its golden leaves, first 
cool days, Haloween, and Arkansas 
City's Arkalalah. 

In 1928. Arkansas City celebrated 
Haloween for the first time with an 
Arkalalah. The main features were held 
in the Fifth Avenue Opera House, now 
the sit? of the new VFW building. 

Following the first festival, for a 
few years the queen was presented in 
the Burford, but in 1936 the auditorium 
became the home of the coronation. 

Although the schools played a small 
part in the first festivals, they have 
since gained quite a responsibility. 
Grade schools have presented dance 
numbers, bands have marched, chorus 
groups have sung, and this year I lie 
school has charge of the coronation. 

Reigning over the celebration is a 
queen chosen from the junior college 
sophomore class. Ten girls are nom- 
inated by a faculty committee for the 
honor, with the final choice being de- 
termined by the ballots of approximate- 
ly 250 townspeople. No campaigning is 

allowed or the individual is disquali- 
fied. The final choice remains secret 
from all, including her majesty, until 
the coronation. 

Former Arkalalah queens were Mrs. 
Dorothy Harbaugh, Mrs. Elmer Griffith, 
Mrs. Jack Lightstone, Mrs. Luther War- 
ren, Mrs. Henry Fox, Mrs. Kenton Col- 
linson, Mrs. Malcom Mills, Mrs. Neal 
Shumway, Mrs. Donovan Yost, Bette 
Brenz, Mrs. Tommy Ladwig. Mrs. Lee 
Tucker, Mrs. Phil Lesh. Mrs. F. I. 
Brumback, and last year's queen, Betty 

Also sending queens are approxi- 
mately thirty neighboring towns who 
are guests of the city for the festival. 

After a five year lapse during the 
war, Arkansas Cityans and their guests 
refused to let continuous rains hinder 
last year's celebration. Defying the wet 
weather, large crowds cheered the 
parade as it proceeded down Summit 
street, somewhat smaller and less at- 
tractive because of the water, but filled 
wiili I lie festive spirit. 

A few days preceding the two-day 
celebration, a large booster group trav- 
els to the surrounding towns, extending 
invitations and arousing interest in the 
Haloween festival. 

Appropriately dressed and decorated, 
Arkansas City will again welcome the 
visiting crowds and be lost in a world 
of happiness and gaiety October 30-31.

Varied Vocational Preferences 
Selected by Juco Students 

Thomas Tells Of 

Those bright and shiny gadgets of 
"the world of tomorrow" are just 
around the corner if the vocational am- 
bitions of students in the Arkansas 
City Junior College are fulfilled. Thirty- 
four junior college boys are studying 
engineering so the rocket that takes 
you to Mars may be the result of the 
brainstorm of one of the Joes around 
the halls of ACJC. Those two indus- 
trialists, Gerald Davis and Bill Dowell 
will be on hand to help. 

Of course, the idea needs selling and 
the business will need managers. With 
an eye toward that future, twenty stu- 
dents are studying business; six busi- 
ness administration, and one, Richard 
Cullers, salesmanship. Neil Bell, Tom 
Haney and Kenneth Rhodes will have 
charge of the advertising campaign 
while Norman Byers will be the econ- 
omist in charge. 

Aspiring Journalists 

Nine aspiring journalists hope to be 
at the origination of the trip to Mars 
to "cover the story" or so goes the 
story in juco. Elwood Keller and Bill 
Ramsey will be broadcasting the event 
for the major networks. 

Twelve students are going to re- 
member their school days (we hope) 
as they begin their teaching careers to 
educate the world in the new ideas. 
Five are majoring in physical educa- 

Lawyers from our alma mater will 
number eight, according to their pres- 
ent plans. 

Farming is an occupation of the 
future that should not be overlooked, 
although it may require a scientist in 
its own field. Seven boys have chosen 
agriculture for their future occupation 
and in that same line Bob Koger is 
planning to be a livestock buyer and 
Richard Clay'oaker a veterinarian. 

Johnny Wimer has stated geology as 
his future occupation and Gerald Greg- 
ory wishes to be a horticulturist. ( Hunt 
up your dictionaries and you'll find 
that he means trees!). In that same 
line, Charles Laugh lin plans to be a 
landscape architect. 

Turning' back to the business field, 
Lura Sanders will be a stenographer 
and five plan to do accounting. .Marie 
Chaplin and Bernyce Thomas will be 
featuring the newest in their interior 

Jack Miller, tinner, and Vernon 
Brewster and Keith Lewis, machinists, 
can contrive anything you want with 
the possibilities of the "world of to- 


With a definite eye toward a home- 
making future, six girls are majoring 
in home economics to be certain of their 
knowledge of homemaking in the fu- 

Future scientists have varied fields. 
For instance, Virginia Vaughn wishes 
to be a nuclear physicist, Peggy Sulli- 
van is studying to be a chemist. E. A. 
Jacobson is majoring in Physics and ■ 

math, James Heinz and Dale Mason, 
science in general. Edward Galle is 
majoring in physics research. 

For painless pulling in the "world 
of tomorrow" see Bill Clay or Warren 
Kelley, dentists. Mike Justice and Don 
Kelley are majoring in medicine. Ber- 
neice Bossi plans to be a medical tech- 
nician and Cora Mae Harris, a tech- 
nician. Opal Bird will be a logopedics 

In the social service line Nadine 
Johnson plans to take up professional 
scouting (girls, that is.). 

Elizabeth Ousley wants to be a singer 
while also on the stage will be John 
Thomas with music and Duane Cline 
with costume designing. 

Future Minister 

Directing the choir of some church 
will be Janell Estep. Who knows, it 
may be in the parish of Robert Adams, 
Willard Harlow, Filson Day or Bob 
Sneller, all future ministers. Rebecca 
Rine plans to be a church social service 

Then, of course, there are those 65 
students who do not yet know what 
they will take up to earn their bread 
and butter. 

You can bet that any place you live, 
you will see and hear of these junior 
college classmates. (Even if it is at 
Winfield's third hill).

European Tour 

Dr. Martin Hall spoke to the junior 
college students September 30 on in- 
ternational problems which he observed 
during a recent tour of eight European 

"Will European Countries Turn to 
the American or Russian Way of Life?" 
was the title of Dr. Hall's speech, 
which described the economic and polit- 
ical situation in England, France, 
Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, Poland, 
Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. 

"European countries," according to 
Dr. Hall, "have only three alterna- 
tives." They can turn to the American 
way of democracy, to the Russian way 
of communism, or to a mixed societv of 

Hall described European crops as 
"the worst in twenty years," due to a 
killing frost. "There will undoubtedly 
be famine in the European countries 
this winter." he reported. 

Dr. Hall, who is now an American 
citizen, is a native of Germany. He was 
sponsored by the Institute of Interna- 
tional Affairs. 

Atom Tests 
At Bikini 

Mr. Bruce Thomas, foreign corre- 
spondent and lecturer addressed the 
combined high school and junior college 
student body Wednesday, Sept. 24, on 
the atomic bomb tests at Bikini. The 
title of his speech was, "We Slammed 
the Door on the Past." 

Mr. Thomas was the only lecturer 
present at Bikini. He told the story of 
Operations Crossroads and described 
the scene and preparations for the 

The first bomb, which exploded 150 
feet in the air demolished seven of the 
target ships. The second exploded 4 5 
feet under water and did five times 
the damage of the first. 

The third test which was to have 
taken place this summer has been in- 
definitely postponed because of Rus- 
sia's objections. The Russians claim 
that these tests appear to be prepara- 
tions for war. 

Mr. Thomas expressed the belief, 
however, that the United States would 
soon continue with the experiments. 

He also started that although the war 
is over, there are still gangster nations 
and we are not living in a Utopian 
world. It is his belief that in this age, 
the only truly international law is the 
"Sermon on the Mount." 

In describing the destruction that 
would be involved in an atomic war, he 
asked the students to remember that 
rifle bullets kill men, but atomic bombs 
kill cities.

Parsons Cards 
Smear Tigers 
In Early Attack 

In their second conference game of 
the season the Tigers lost to the under- 
rated Parsons Cardinals. 14 to 0, at 
Parsons, Sept. 26. 

The Cardinals out-charged and out- 
played the Tigers all the way. Early 
in the first quarter Jim O'Neal, Parsons 
halfback, who paced the Cards all the 
way, intercepted a pass from George 
Ward on the Card 35-yard line and ran 
T < > yards behind beautiful interference 
for the first touchdown. Ellis, Parsons 
quarterback, kicked the extra point. 

The hen gals' chance came when 
Brady recovered a Card fumble on their 
33. On the next play the Tigers dropped 
tlie ball or the 29 and Parsons recover- 
ed. With Bray. Parsons fullback, and 
Don Smith, halfback, running the ball, 
the Cards marched 71 yards for their 
second touchdown of the first half. El- 
lis kicked the extra point. 

In t lie second half the Cards held the 
Tigers scoreless by charging the line, 
often taking the Tigers for a loss be- 
hind the scrimmage line. The Tigers' 
George Ward and Parsons' Smith car- 
ried on a punting duel for most of the 
half, with the Cards in possession of the 
ball on the Tiger 2 2 as the game ended. 

The Tigers ran the ball for more first 
downs, although the Cards' runs were 

Ark City starters were Brady, Quim- 
by. Templar, Coker, D. Hearne, Mc- 
Cutcheon, Chaplin, George Ward, Had-

Ark City subs were Larkin, Daniel, 
Porch, Squyres, Berry, Gilstrap, Gard- 
ner, Glasgow and Keith Hearne. 

Meet Miss Co-Ed 

Miss Co-Ed for this week is Cora Mae 
(commonly called "Corky") Harris. 
She is a newcomer to these parts as she 
hails from Newkirk. Okla., where she 
was very active in high school activ- 

Disputing the previous statement 
that Corky is a newcomer we find that 
this 5 feet 3 inch lass was born in Ar- 
kansas City August 10, 1929. 

Among her likes she is partial to 
orchids, the song "Guilty," and all of 
Stan Kenton's jazz pieces. 

Corky, like all girls, has her version 
of the perfect man." He'll lie 6 feet 
tall, have a wonderful physique, black 
wavy hair and blue eyes. So if anyone 
sees this type of man running around 
loose please le|| Corky. 

She ioves to sing as a hobby and is 
studying to be a stenographer. Next 
year she will continue her courses here 
and is undecided about what college 
she will attend upon graduation from 

Dan Stark was in Missouri last week 
to attend his brother's funeral. 

Haslett, Rahn Win 
State Fair Honors 

Dorothy Haslett and Georgia Ann 
Rahn, freshmen, spent a week in Hutch- 
inson. Kas., attending the Kansas State 
Fair. The event started September 13 
and continued through September 3 0. 

Georgia Ann entered a complete cos- 
tume in the contest and received a 
white ribbon as it was classified in the 
third division. 

Dorothy entered "Food for a Meal" 
and won first division placement which 
was a blue rbbon. 

Dorothy was on the inspection com- 
mittee in the dormitories and was 
chairman of her group. 

Both girls entered a contest in which 
they demonstrated how to care for the 
hair. The results on this entry have 
not been received. 

The girls quartered at the 4-H en- 
campment building which was located 
on the fair grounds.

were taken on a educational trip

Bengals Defeat 
Ravens 7-0 

A sterling defensive stand by deter- 
mined Tiger linemen and backs gave 
sweet revenge to Arkansas City grid 
fans Friday night, as the Bengals scored 
early to dump the potent Coffeyville 
Red Ravens, 7 to 0, on Curry Field. 

Tiger recoveries of two Raven fum- 
bles deep in Coffeyville territory in the 
initial stanza gave the locals the op- 
portunity they sought, and they struck 
through the air to score the game's 
only counter. Oddly enough, and though 
the victory was deserved, the touch- 
down would have been nullified had the 
officials ruled correctly. A pass from 
Grinnell bounced away from Chaplin 
into the waiting arms of Taton, without 
being touched by a Coffeyville player. 
It was illegal, but it's in the books now. 
Farnsworth kicked the point. 

The Ravens unleashed a smashing at- 
tack, with Fullback Mace bearing the 
brunt of the carrying duties, to pile up 
a lead of 11 first downs to 2 for the 
Tigers, but the Bengal defense was 
sufficient when the Chips were down, 
and the big Red team did penetrate 1 
the Tiger 10-yard line, though local 
fans sighed with relief when the half- 
time whistle blew, and again in the 
third quarter when the Speermen took 
over the ball on downs on their own

Dragons Invade 
Tiger Lair For 
Crucial Game 

One of the largest crowds in local 
junior college football history is ex- 
pected to jam Curry Field tomorrow 
night when the power-laden Hutchinson 
Blue Dragons clash with Coach "Bunt" 
Speer's Tigers, still hot from last Fri- 
day's thrilling upset of the vaunted 
Coffeyville Red Ravens. 

The Blue Dragons, packed with stars 
from Norval Neve's dazzling high school 
powerhouse of the past few seasons, 
will roar into Ark City in an attempt to 
bowl over the Tigers in their march 
on the conference title. Hutchinson, 
rated as the team to beat for the Kan- 
sas crown by many experts, lived up to 
all advance dope while blasting Dodge 
City last week bv the amazing score of 
5 7 to 0. 

After downing the Red Ravens, 7 
to 0, for their second conference win 
in three starts, Arkansas City will be 
rarin' to score another upset win. A 
victory over Hutchinson will throw the 
Arks into the thick of the champion- 
ship battle in the strongest competition 
in the conference history. 

With Earl Grinnell, star quarterback 
of last year's strong Tiger eleven, back 
in the Bengal lineup, the Tigers may 
have received the needed offensive 
spark which they lacked in their first 
two contests this year. It was Grinnell 
who ran a kickoff back 100 yards 
while pacing the Speermen to a 37 to 
2 4 win over Hutchinson in last year's 
high-scoring thriller. Grinnell's 100- 
yard touchdown jaunt tied for first 
among all college players in the nation 
for 1 94 H in that department. 

On October 17, the Tigers will travel 
to Pratt lor a game with the Beavers, 
the heaviest team in the western con- 
ference. The Arks will be slight fav- 
orites in this clash, although Pratt will 
have the advantage of the home field. 
The Tigers trounced the Beavers, 33 to 
0, last season at Curry Field. 

All in all, it looks like tomorrow 
night's battle with Hutchinson will de- 
cide the Tigers' title hopes. If the Arks 
can get past the Dragons, their next 
big game will not be until Nov. 7, when 
they go to Independence. After Hutch- 
inson, it will be Pratt, Tonkawa, and 
Dodge City on successive week-ends 
with the Tigers favored to cop all 
three. The Tonkawa game will be a 
non-league fracas.

Queen Alalah 
To Be Crowned 
Next Thursday 

Queen Alalah is here!

talking with her now! Some sophomore 
girl will be crowned Queen Alalah XVI 
just a week from tonight, by Jimmy

The junior college has a major roll 
in the city's annual Arkalalah celebra- 
tion, from the most inconspicious dan- 
cer to her royal highness. The program 
is again under the direction of the city 
schools with Dr. Jerry J. Vineyard, 
new superintendent of schools, co-chair- 
man of the celebration. 

The sophomore belle will be crowned 
at the opening of the festivities, the 
coronation program, the theme of which 
will remain secret like the identity of 
the queen. 

Mike Justice, sophomore, Cora Mae 
Harris, freshman, and Barry McGuire, 
high school senior, will be masters and 
mistress of ceremonies for the various 
portions of the program. The junior 
college chorus will combine with the 
high school chorus for their part of the 

Secret Theuie 

The theme of the program will be 
of the most up-to-date topics of discus- 
sion and will provide suspense, sur- 
prise and entertainment for all. 

Queen Alalah XVI will wear a new 
gown and crown but their design will 
also be kept secret. The election, as in 
former years, will remain secret from 
all, including her majesty, and will be 
revealed when she dons the new gown. 

Ballots bearing the names of the can- 
didates are now among the townspeople, 
who will make the final choice. The 
faculty has placed seven names on the 
ballot. For the first time, the distribu- 
tor of the ballots will have pictures of 
the nominees to enable voters to make 
their choice more easily. 

This year there are only twelve single 
sophomore girls whose names would be 
eligible for consideration for nomina- 
tion. They include Alice Craft, Ethel 
Harvey, Francie Heinz, Nadine John- 
son, Betty Ann Oliver, Elizabeth Ous- 
ley, Mary K. Peterson, Rebecca Rine. 
Peggy Sullivan, Virginia Vaughn, Rose-

They Wondered Too — 
Will We Have 
A Juco Building? 

Questions of importance to juco stu- 
dents today are not all new, many 
have been carried over from year to 
year. For example, the construction of 
a new junior college building has long 
been debated and worked for. 

In looking through some old records 
and files, an article written in 1946 
has been uncovered containing many of 
the current questions and statements 
in regard to the new school. This ar- 
ticle was written by Helen Jane Beat- 
son who graduated from the Arkansas 
City junior college. Selections from her 
writing read: 

"This communities most powerful 
asset today is her junior college. At a 
time when the universities and four- 
year colleges of the nation are filled to 
capacity, the junior college of the small 
community is the obvious solution to 
the greatest educational problem in the 
country's history. With their staffs 
and accomodations overtaxed, univer- 
sities and colleges are daily refusing ad- 
mittance to hundreds of students, in- 
cluding veterans. This fact is rapidly 
bringing the junior college of the small 
community into its own. 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
under present conditions is inadequate 
to accomodate the situation. It is above 
all else unattractive to prospective stu- 
dents. In all its history the college has 
been not a sign of progress for its stu- 
dents but merely a step down from the 
high school. The high school has too 
long stood in the limelight casting its 
shadow on every project undertaken by 
the college." 

The people voted in favor of a new 
building last year and the site of the 
old Monroe Hotel was chosen for the 
building of the new college. 

This is Arkansas City's chance to 
take a big step forward. In conclusion, 
she stated, "With the advent of new 
students under the veterans' program. 

Language Clubs 
Hold Meetings; 
Select Nominees 

The junior college French Club held 
its first meeting of the school year in 
the junior college club room October 
15 at 7 p. m. 

The nominating committee, chosen 
by the group, included Norman Byers, 
Jeanne Smith, Berneice Bossi and 
Ernest Day. 

Nominated are Jeanne Smith and 
Elwood Keller for president, Barbara 
Williams and Ann Rochl for vice- 
president, Nadine Johnson and Jeri 
Acton for secretary-treasurer and Edna 
Robson and Jim Austin for reporter. 

The program consisted of singing 
French songs, playing a game in 
French, and French conversation. 

The next meeting will be held Oc- 
tober 29, at which time officers will 
be elected. 

The first meetings of the German 
and Spanish language clubs were 
scheduled for Wednesday evening, 
October 2 2, in the college club rooms. 

Because of the nine weeks exams 
being given this week, the clubs met 
for only 30 minute sessions. The Ger- 
man students convened at 7 p. m. 
followed by the Spanish students at 
7:30 p. m. 

Tentative plans for the evening were 
the selection of nominating commit- 
tees to select candidates for club of- 

Miss Anne Hawley, language instruc- 
tor, sponsors the groups. 


Motion Picture 
Shown In Assembly 

A motion picture, "2 6 Old Char- 
acters," the history of the alphabet 
was the main feature of a junior col- 
lege assembly last Thursday morning. 

The picture was of interest to all 
classes and was particularly important 
to language students.

Approximately 75 Tonkawa fans will 
be at Curry Field for the game to-

College is being offered an opportunity 
to emerge from its present status of in- 
significance to its rightful position as a 
progressive and important community

Let's Help Make 
Arkalalah a Success 

When Halloween is mentioned, we 
immediately think of funny faces, cos- 
tumes, pumpkins, parties, spooks, mys- 
tery, and the joy of bobbing for apples. 
But to a few, Halloween is a good ex- 
cuse for tearing down property that be- 
longs to others — this is not what Hal- 
loween is celebrated for. 

Next week we will be entertaining in 
Arkansas City, many visitors and guests 
from various neighboring towns and 
communities. Not only is it our duty 
to welcome and show thes o people a 
good time, but also to refrain from 
tearing down someone's work or mak- 
ing unnecessary labor lor housewives 
or businessmen. 

Arkalalah is for OUR enjoyment — 
not just mine or yours, but for every- 
one. Let's make it that way — a good 
time for all. With cooperation from 
everyone, especially the students, Ar- 
kansas City's Arkalalah can be a great 
success, a celebration that will be re- 
membered and looked forward to more 
than any other in the community. 

Our hospitality and friendship will 
not only bring the visitors back next 
year, but we will have their interest, 
support, and trade, things that will 
make a town a city. 

Brush Piles Make 
Debut In Local Juco 

Just as the fashion world for women 
lis: been a topic of interest in regards 
to the subject of longer skirls, the ■ ub- 
ject of over-grown five o'clock shadows 
seen in (he halls of ACJC might well be 
another point of discussion. 

From a glimpse of the halls, one 
might at first think that Ole Man Mose 
is going to run up against more com- 
petitors (or have you read Lil' Abner 
lately?) Some of these beards, mus- 
taches, and sideburns have been 
trimmed a little here or shaved a little 
there to produce some novel, if not 
startling, effects. 

A few of the fellows sporting "brush 
piles" are Bud Harp. Joe Avery, Charles 
Tanner, Filson Day, and Jack Miller. 

Gee! It must be wonderful to get 
your chin scratched every time you 
kiss a fellow with a beard. 

Hi guys and gals! Having trouble 
with all those exams? Well, we'll try 
to take your minds off such things 
by revealing some of the dirt that has 
been flying our way this week. 

* * * * 

At this point perhaps we should toss 
a bouquet to the football team for the 
swell games they've been playing. Keep 
up the good work fellas!

Also a round of applause should go 
to the social committee for the grand 
party last week.

"For Sentimental Reasons" people 
usually remember the color of a per- 
sons eyes, the kind of perfume they 
wear or the wrinkling of one's nose, 
but among those who seem to be less 
observant of such invisible character- 
istics are Bill Mitchell who remembers 
the shapes of peoples heads, Bebe Jo 
Louderback who remembers the ail- 
ments of people and quotes prescrip- 
tions to cure them, Virginia Banks who 
recalls that a certain person's insurance 
isn't paid up. and Edna Robson who 
remembers what was turned into the 
Traveler about someone and which was

planning on taking up table tennis as

As you all know the name for the 
booster club has not yet been decided 
upon. If anyone has any bright ideas, 
let them be known so we can publicize 
this organization on a large basis! 

Quoting Mr. Stark: 

"If I don't get this mixture just 
right it will blow us all to kingdom 
come. I want you boys on the back 
row to move up closer so you can 

follow me."

Is it a plane? No! It's Betty Ann Oliver

Congratulations, kids! 

Lynn Smith is very good at drawing 
his own conclusions from certain sen- 
tences in English Literature class. The 
sentence read, "The suitors were bring- 
ing about a disagreement with the 
maids in the hall". When Miss Sleeth 
called on Lynn to translate the sen- 
tence, he replied: "The old guys were 
kicking up a rumpus with the gals in 

the room."

Well, this is all for now, but don't 
forget the little news box in the club 
rooms next week. 

Got a Gripe? 
Tell It to the Editor 

Hear Editor, 

Last week a bus was chartered for 
the ACJC students to travel to Pratt, 
Kansas, to see our football team play 
a wonderful game. Since there were 
Hit seats available on the bus it was 
< » i i I > natural that :5:i students should 
be expected to o, and even more than 
that because most students with the 
least bit of school enthusiasm, would 
be more thin over-joyed at having a 
chance to so. By Thursday night nine 
students had signed up to go on the 
bus. Nautrally it was not taken. 

Now comes the question, where was 
all of our school spirit? 

The deal about chartering the bus 
to Pratt was only one of the ways in 
which the students have displayed their 
school enthusiasm. We should so all 
out for school activities, become inter- 
ested in whatever project the school 
undertakes, cheer for our football team, 
ami back the boys on tin- team one hun- 
dred per cent. As anyone can plainly see 
we could all stand to have more pep. 
.lust because we arc in college is not 
reason for loosing our initiative. We 
should really he more enthusiastic in 
order to show the high school that we 

haven't become decrepted in the last 
few years. 

Yelling for the team is part of the 
patriotism that comes from being in- 
dividual and being able to say what we 
want even if it's jeering the referee. 
At least that would show that we hart 
an interest in what is going on. 

We've all got the vim, vigor and vi- 
tality if we just use it. 

We don't want ACJC to be known 
as "spiritless" do we? No! So this Fri- 
day night let's show the Tonkawa Mav- 
ericks and their boosters that the Ti- 
ger boosters have really and truly got 
pep by sitting in a group at the game 
and cheering for all we're worth!

Meet Miss Co-Ed 

Everytime you walk into the juco 
office, you encounter a dark haired, 
five foot and six inch, brown-eyed, at- 
tractive young lady. This fair damsel of 
whom we speak is none othe : ' than 
Doris Deets. 

Doris was born in Portland, Kansas, 
a small town only 16 miles west of Ar- 
kansas City, on the 17 of March, 1928. 
Although her home is in Dexter, Doris 
and a friend, Bonnie Wood, have a cute 
apartment in Arkansas City where they 
stay during the week. Many week-ends 
find Doris and Bonnie in Dexter. 

Reading is Doris' favorite pastime 
and basketball tops her list of juco 
games. Music being another of her 
weaknesses, she has no particularly fa- 
vorite piece but likes them all. Her pet 
peeve is to be called an "old maid." 
After all, who's an old maid at 19? 

Dexter will feature 
queen for the coming 

Doris, because of her outstanding per- 
sonality and ambition, graduated 
among the "top" of the juco class last 
year. Liking this type of work, she has

Arks Tumble 
Beavers By 
Single Point 

A fourth quarter rally enabled the 
Tigers of ACJC to grind out a 20 to 
19 victory over the Pratt Junior Col- 
lege Beavers at Pratt Friday night 
in their closest decision of the current 
grid season. 

Pratt was leading 19 to 13 when 
One-Man-Gang Charlie Ward took 
over. The Ark fullback plunged alid 
scrambled to gains on six of the seven 
plays needed to advance from th 
Ark 30 to pay dirt, and a pass, Grin- 
nell to Brady, provided the conversion 
for the single-point margin. A pass 
interception by Jim McCormick stop- 
ped the final flurry as Pratt desperate- 
ly tried to regain the lead. 

Two drives were necessary to couni 
the original Tiger touchdown, a fumble 
on the Beaver two-yard line nullifying 
the first attempt, and Grinnell flip- 
ping to Porch on the second, an i 
yard negotiation. The Westerners re- 
taliated via the air and a two-yard 
plunge to even it up. Pratt converter 
to lead. 

Grinnell ambled 25 yards to cap 
another 7 0-yard march for the Tigers, 
and then passed to Chaplin for th 
point. Ernie Taton breezed for 80 
yards and a third score, but a Bengal 
offside penalty erased that one. Just 
before the half ended the Beavers 
scored on a pass and lateral to Gil- 
more, who sprinted from midfield to 

The Beavers got their final counter 
on a pass interference ruling which 
gave them the ball on the Tiger 4, 
plus a couple of plunges. That roused 
Ward's dander, and he went to work, 
with the edifying results above noted.

Hutch Dragons 
Outclass Bengals 
To Win 27-13 

The Blue Dragons of Hutchinson in- 
vaded Arkansas City October 10 and 
swept the local Bengals off their feet 
with a blaze of blinding speed to thi 
tune of 27 to 13. The Tigers were out- 
classed all the way. Hutchinson, which 
undoubtedly has the fastest team ii 
the conference, also showed bewilder- 
ing deception in their running plays. 

In the first quarter, the Speermen 
made a game battle of it until Ear 1 
Grinnell, quarterback, was taken out 
with a hip injury, not to return until 
the final quarter. Bill Walz, 225- 
pound guard, also was out in the 
first quarter. 

The Tiger's first touchdown came 
when Mark Porch. Tiger back, re- 
covered a dragon fumble in the end 
zone. McCutcheon's kick was good. 
Hutchinson had previously scored 
when Hooper, Dragon quarter, ran 41 
yards on a fast sweep. Nevius place- 
kicked for the extra point. 

Tiger forwards ended two scoring 
threats by getting the ball on downs 
on their 10-yard stripe. Hutchinson 
then scored on a 70-yard march, with 
Nevius kicking the extra point again. 
A fumble by Charles Ward on the 
Tiger 24 gave the Dragons their next 
opportunity to score. Hooper went over 
through the middle of the line, then 
Nevius connected again to bring the 
score 21 to 7. In the third quarter, 
on a pass to Wilson who lateraled 
to Koontz, the Dragons scored again. 
This time Nevius' toe failed. 

K. Hearne recovered a Dragon fum- 
ble in the final stanza and Grinnell 
came back to start passes clicking. 
One to Brady went for 32 yards, and 
then to Brady again for 12. On a pass 
bouncing out of the hands of a Dragon 
back and into Keith Hearne's arms 
in the end zone, the Speermen scored 
again for a 27-13 final score. Th 

Tigers Tangle 
With Mavericks 
Tomorrow Night 

The Tigers have only five remaining 
games of the current grid season. In 
the next fortnight they will meet 
Tonkawa on October 24 here, and the 
Dodge City Conquistadors, October 31. 

The Tonkawa Mavericks will bring 
six lettermen, one lineman and five 
backs from last year's team, which 
defeated the Tigers 12 to 6. While 
this year Tonkawa lost to the Hutch- 
inson Dragons 20 to 13 in their open- 
er, the Bengals lost 27 to 13. 

Tonkawa players include speedy Bert 
Gray, pass-slinger Floyd Schardlin, and 
the driving Don Garden who sparked 
the Mavericks at Hutchinson. The Ton- 
kawa line and backfield run the same 
weight as the Bengals. 

The Speermen will be out to avenge 
last year's loss to the Mavericks by 
showing the power and fierce tackling 
they displayed against Coffeyville. 

Following the Tonkawa game, the 
Tigers will journey to Dodge City, 
where they will play against the Con- 
quistadors, who lost early in the sea- 
son to Hutchinson 5 2 to and to 
Sterling tj to 0. The Bengals wiii oe

Number 1 

Rebecca Rine 
Reigns As 
Queen Alaiah 

Rebecca Rine, sophomore, began her 
two-day holiday rule Thursday evening 
amid an "awetomic" blast which si- 
lenced to reveal her as Queen Alaiah 
XVI. Informed of the honor by Dr. 
Jerry J. Vineyard, superintendent of 
schools and co-chairman of the cele- 
bration, just 25 minutes before her 
coronation, Becky donned the new 
satin queen's gown and prepared for a 
debut before an overflowing auditorium 
capacity of 3200. 

Peggy Sullivan, Rosemary Warren, 
Betty Ann Oliver and Nadine Johnson, 
the other highest ranking candidates 
were her attendants. Queens from 18 
visiting towns were also in Queen 
Alalah's court. 

Jimmy Turner, president of the 
junior college student council, crowned 
her majesty and presented her with her 
ruling scepter and her large bouquet of 
autumn flowers. 

The program arranged for Queen 
Alaiah had the theme of "Arkalal-ic 
Frolic of 1947" and was arranged by 
A. E. Maag, assisted by other facility 
members. It was divided into three 
parts, "Awe-tomic Prelude," "Autumn- 
ic Fantasy" and "Ark Civic Pride." The 
sub-divisions of the parts spelled 
"Alaiah Forty Seven." The autumn 
theme of Halloween was carried out 
during the entire program. 

Mike Justice, sophomore, was master 
of ceremonies for the first section. Cora 
Mae Harris, freshman, was mistress of 
ceremonies for the second part and 
Barry McGuire, high school senior, was 
master of ceremonies for the third por- 

One of the highlights of the third 
part was a pantomime presented by 
Janell Estep, Kenneth Rhodes, Bob 
Sneller, Anne Hoehl and Bebe Jo Loud- 
erback, assisted by the chorus, orches- 
tra and band. The junior college-high 
school combined chorus sang several 
numbers fo rthe program. 

Following the program, the Queen's 
Ball was held in the auditorium with 
Bonner Ruff and his Noted Men pro- 
viding the music with Cora Mae Harris 
as vocalist. Again Queen Alaiah took 
the spotlight. 

The Arkalalah parade which featured 
Queen Alaiah XVI on her float's throne, 
followed a luncheon. The parade was 
an hour long and five miles in length. 
Spectators numbered over 25,000 or 
approximately twice the normal popula- 
tion of Arkansas City. It was proclaimed 
one of the greatest Arkalalah parades 

Rebecca Itine, juco sophomore and 
head cheerleader was selected by the 
townspeople as Queen Alaiah XVI to 
reign over the two day Arkalalah cele- 

in the history of the annual celebration.

Well, gang, did you manage to sur- 
vive those nine-weeks exams? Some of 
the stev, "dents (who've been really stew- 
ing) have confided that they're going 
to crack those books a little oftener 
after those dreaded mid-term grades 
have made their appearance at home. 

Congrats to Janell Estep and 
Bob Sneller for such a super cute 
skit presented in our last pep as- 

A new point of beauty and interest 
in Arkansas City is the San Roman? 
fountain on the auditorium-gymnasium 
plaza which made its debut during the 
Arkalalah eel eh rat ion. 

Upon the death of a popular instru- 
mental music director, Archie San 
Romani, funds were raised by public 
subscription for a memorial. Although 
construction began in 1941, it was left 
incomplete due to the lack of the intri- 
cate operating mechanism during the 
war years. 

The memorial fountain which has 
been completed by the Junior Chamber 
of Commerce, sponsor of the project i 
was one of the centers of attraction ' 
during the Arkalalah. 

Not only is the completion of the 
fountain a deserving memorial to San 
Romani, but it is also a work of beauty 
and art. The people of Arkansas City 
say. "Thank You" to the members who 
aided in the construction of the me- 

lipids First Meeting

27 in the junior college clubrooms. 

A nominating committee was named 
It includes, Barry McGuire, Donna Mul- 
lett, Rebecca Rine. Bill Ramsey and 
Ora Lane Edwards. 

The business was conducted in Span- 
ish and Spanish folk songs were sung. 
Plans were made to spend some time 
in the study of Spanish-American coun- 
tries. Ora Edwards won the prize in a 
Spanish game. 

The club will meet regularly on the 
second and fourth Mondays of the

Meet Mr. Ed 

Five feet, eleven and one-half inches 
and 215 pounds of man — that's the 
college freshman, Kenneth Rhodes. 

A native of Arkansas City, Kenny 
was born here on September 23, 19 28, 
a small bouncing, rosy-cheeked baby. 
His first main words were "da-da" 
but since those first peeps of child- 
hood, they seem to have change ' 'o 
the two dominating words "hn'ia 

Favorites of Kenny's are chocolato 
cake, ice cream, chicken, girls, danc- 
ing. Miss Sleeth and Rhetoric, sing- 
ing, girls, "In the Mood," "Always," 
basketball, and his pipe. 

Kenny's favorite pastime is riding 
around in a "brand new Nash." 

This young man is credited 
not only a jolly, likeable disposition 
but also has green eyes and brown 
hair. One of Kenny's biggest, djsires 
is "to be Santa Clans at Christmas." 

Not going steady, he is "looking 
the field over." His ideal gill is bru- 
nette (or blonde — he said it didn't 
make any difference), about 5'6", has 
blue eyes and must be "someone tha' 
can keep up with him." 

Kenny thinks a simply "wonderful' 
evening would be to go dancing and I 
then get a short snack. After which. 

Hold Initial Meeting 

The initial meeting of the German 
club was held Wednesday. October 2 2, 
in the juco clubroom. 

Malcolm Smith, Mark Porch, and 
Duana Boswell were c'nosen as the nom- 
inating committee for the group. Can- 
didates for officers are Mike Justice 
and Don Kelley, president; Del Allen 
and Rodney Wilson, Vice-president; 
Francie Heinz and Bill Smith, secre- 
tary; and Rex Howe and Bob Adams, 

The next meeting, scheduled for 
November 5, has been postponed due to

Popular Junior College Club Room 
Wos Once a Humble Shower 

One of the most popular juco rooms 
is the basement clubroom where we 
loaf, we work, and we play. Like all 
good things in life, this had a beginning 
and a history. 

The room that is now the center of 
college activity was once the old high 
school shower a n d locker room. 
Through the engenuity, planning, and 
work of our "fore-students" the "after- 
gym-class-turmoil" has become the pres- 
ent day clubroom. 

Like today's student, the knowledge- 
seekers who went before us, needed a 
place to go between classes. After an 
investigation, a group of students pro- 
posed that the shower room be trans- 
formed into a clubroom. With the 
"okaying" of this proposal came the 
real labor and using of elbow-grease. 

With rolled-up sleeves, jeans, slacks, 
and overalls, the students plastered, 
painted, and complete!'/ remodeled the 

The interest, however, soon broaden- 
ed farther than the college walls and 
the business men became interested in 
the juco project. Newman's donated the 
room a $150 living room suite besides 
other contributions from outsiders. 

Two other suites were purchased by 
the juco student council and a radio- 
phonograph from Seeley's provided the 
music for the students. Mr. McKinley 
Ghramm donated the ping pong table, 
an item which is in constant use. 

These were the basic articles for the 
clubroom. Other items purchased and 

donated were decks of cards, records, 
games, magazines, and ping pong balls. 
But still something seemed to be miss- 
ing — the coke machine! With the ad- 
dition of this pleasure-filled box, the 
room stepped into its final stages. 

On the evening of March 18, 1942, 
the clubroom was formally opened by a 
social which was held in the lounge and 
senior high gym. Spotlighting the open- 
ing social was dancing to the music of 
Bonner Ruff's Noted Men. This affair 
was for he seniors of the high school, 
Board of Education members, and the 
faculty, as well as all juco students. 
The money made by the social was used 
to help pay for the furnishings that 
were bought for the clubroom. 

The chief pushers behind the project 
were Ivan Upson, board member, K. R. 
Galle, Dean, Coach D. C. Stark, and 
students Dorothy Moody, Neidra Waltz, 
George Sybrant, Bob Morgan, Jean 
Peck, Bill Ledeker, Bob Burton, and 
Bob Howland, with the assistance of 

In March, 1946, Shirley Gilliland, 
Jean Humphrey, Dale Smith, Betty 
Smith, and Norman Moody saw the need 
of a clean-up job and set to work to 
fulfill the task. Repairing and refinish- 
ing the furniture and ping pong table, 
redecorating the walls and obtaining a 
record holder were the chief goals of 
the group. 

Yes, the juco clubroom is alive with 
activity and merriment today, thanks to 
the hard work and planning of yester-

Tigers Invade 
Pirates Tonight 

The Independence Pirates will play 
host to the Tiger grid squad tonight as 
Coach Bunt Speer's crew seek their 
fifth conference victory in seven starts. 
The contest was moved up to a Wednes- 
day evening feature due to the state 
teachers' meetings. 

Next week, November 14, the Arks 
will be back on their regular Friday 
date in a home engagement with their 
old rivals, the potent El Dorado Grizz- 

The Tigers are rated about even 
with Independence in tonight's clash. 
The Pirates dropped an early IS to 
heart-breaker to Fort Scott but have 
been improving steadily since| The 
Bengals will have to play all out in 
order to repeat their victory of last 
year o\ er the Pirates. 

El Dorado has another fast, rugged 
eleven ihis season and will be ready to 
grind the Tigers into the Curry Field 
turf in compensation for last year's 
upset win by the Tigers. The Arks, 
however, will be just as anxious for a 
sequel of the '4 6 fracas. 

The football schedule for the re- 
mainder of the season is: 

Nov. 5, Independence, There. 

Nov. 14, El Dorado, Here. 

Nov. 21, Fort Scott, Here. 

Are You In Favor 
Of Professional 
College Football? 

What is your opinion of a profes- 
sional football league among similar 
medium-sized colleges and universities 
through which each would sponsor a 
team which plays for pay? 

The president of the University of 
Louisville, a standard collegiate insti- 
tution, lias proposed that such a pro- 
gram be adopted. 

Advantages of the project, he says, 
would include: 

1. Income for colleges with slim bud- 

2. Avoidance of the pseudo-profes- 
sionalism so common among so-called 
"amateur" college teams which receive 
sub-rosa payments. 

3. A cl ance for a good football player 
to earn his way through college if he 
wanted to go, and yet remain honest. 

4. A chance for the public to see good 
football without the troubles which 
come from eligibility rules, for the 
player need not be enrolled in school 
at all. 

Why or why not do you as students 
think this idea is a good or bad one? 
If you have an opinion, drop a note in 
the journalism box in the clubroom. 
Outstanding ones will be printed in the 
next issue. Be sure to sign your name.

Mavericks Maul 
Bengals With A 
38-Foint Total 

Without the aid of a single forward 
pass, die potent Northern Oklahoma 
Junior College Mavericks from Tonkawa 
ran to a 3 8 to 13 victory over the Tigers 
in a non-conference clash at Curry 
Field. October 24. 

In running up the 3 8-point total, the 
Mavericks capitalized on a series of 
breaks. It was the highest total scored 
against the Tigers in many seasons. 

The Arks grabbed a 7 to lead early 
in the lirst period when Earl Grinnell 
ran 2 4 yards to the Tonkawa one-yard 
line and plunged over on the next play. 
Grinnell passed to Joe Berry for the 
extra point and a 7-0 advantage. 

Northern Oklahoma came right back 
with a 7 3-yard drive to score. A pen- 
alty against the Tigers for "roughing 
the passer" proved costly to the Bengals 
as it nullified a pass interception by 
Grinnell which would have ended the 
Tonkawa march. The penalty gave the 
visitors the ball on the 16, and Claud 
Young crashed over several plays later. 
His kick for the poinc was no good and 
Ark City still led 7-6 as the first quar- 
ter ended. 

Tonkawa tallied twice in the second 
period, once on a 5 3-yard run by Con- 
way which set up a score, and again 
after Tonkawa recovered a fumble deep 
in Ark City territory. 

A blocked kick set up the fourth 
Oklahoma touchdown in the third 
period, but for the fourth successive 
time the kick for the extra point was 
no good and the Mavericks held a 2 4-7 
advantage as the third quarter ended. 

James McCormick recovered a Mav- 
erick fumble on the Tonkawa 3 8-yard 
stripe to enable the Tigers to score 
their final touchdown on a pass from 
Grinnell to Bob Brady. The pass for 
the point was no good. 

Tonkawa came right back by return- 
ing the kickoff 60 yards and crossing 
the goal-line in three more plays. This 
time Young's kick fo rtbe point was 

The final counter of the game came 
a few minutes later on a 5 7-yard gallop 
by Ivan Tribby after intercepting a 
Tiger aerial. Young's kick for conver- 

Tigers Roll Up 
12-7 Victory 
Over Dodge City 

With all-conference Back Earl Grin- 
nell turning in another stellar perform- 
ance, the Tigers rolled up their fourth 
victory of the season October 31 with 
a, hard-earned 12 to 7 victory at Dodge 

Forced to miss this city's gala Ark- 
alalah festivities to make the lengthy 
journey into western Kansas, Coach 
"Bunt" Speer's hard-charging crew 
took it out on the hapless Conquista- 

The Conqs gave the home crowd 
something to cheer about when they 
turned a Tiger fumble into a second- 
quarter touchdown and a 7-0 half-time 
lead, but the Tigers came roaring back 
from the intermission to push across 
twehe points in the third stanza for 
the victory. 

The Dodge City counter came on a 
bootleg play from the Tiger 20-yard 
line after recovering one of the Arks' 
frequent first-half fumbles. 

A pass was good for the extra point. 

The Tigers held onto the ball 
throughout the second half and clearly 
outplayed the Conqs. The Bengals drove 
8 5 yards for their first score early in 
the third period, paced by Fullback 
Charley Ward. George Ward then took 
to the air on the Dodge City 25 and 
passed to Grinnell, who crossed the 
goal line alter a brilliant broken field 
sprint. A plunge for the conversion 
failed, and the Tigers still trailed, 7-6. 

The winning touchdown came later 
in the same quarter after another run 
by Grinnell, this time for 50 yards after 
taking a lateral from G. Ward. The 
Indian ace was finally hauled down on 
the Conqs' ten-yard line, but George 
Ward smashed off tackle three plays 
later for the score. 

Meet- Miss Co-Ed 

Awakening from her afternoon nap in 
the juco clubrooms, Miss Co-Ed sleepily 
told a few facts of her life. Although 
this little Miss has no phone, she can 
easily be contacted at Chilocco. 

Eighteen years old, Francie Heinz is 
taking a pre-med course and will com- 
plete her studies for specialization in 
child's diseases at Oklahoma University. 

For her ideal man. Miss Co-Ed de- 
scribes someone six foot one, with dark 
curly hair, big blue eyes and "a won- 
derful personality." She is five foot six 
and weighs 118 pounds. 

Favorites include "Moonlight Sere- 
nade," hamburger, horseback riding 
and swimming. 

sion was good, to make the final score 
3 8 to 13. It was the 20th point scored 
by Claud Young. 

Grinnell and Bob Brady starred for 
the Tigers as they went down to their 
third defeat of the season.

Aase Gruner 
In Juco Assembly 

Miss A.ase Elizabeth Gruner, a grad- 
uate of Oslo University, Oslo Norway, 
spoke to the junior college students 
Thursdav, November 13, explaining the 
World Student Relief Fund (WSRF), 
and telling a little about Norway during 
the war years. 

"The WSRF furnishes the four fol- 
lowing aids to students of troubled 
countries of the world," explained Miss 
Gruner. "They are: (1) medical care; 
(2) food, housing, and clothing; (3) 
intellectual relief; and (4) special 
aids." WSRF has raised a total of 
$4,000,000 as a relief fund. There are 
18 countries which are members of the 
WSRF besides Norway and the United 

Miss Gruner, who is one of the 500 
Norwegian students completing their 
education in the United States, has 
been studying at Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity where she majored in English 
literatuie. She has a scholarship to 
Bryn Mawr University, which will be- 
gin January 1 and last until June 1. 

At the age of 12 years, Miss Gruner 
began a determined study of the Eng- 
lish language. She can also speak 
several European languages. 

A group of Junior College Christian 
Association members and their spon- 
sor accompanied Miss Gruner to lunch 
at Deibel's after the program. There, 
the students learned more about Nor- 
way during the war. 

Those present were: Miss Gruner,

Table Tennis 
Artists Scramble 
For Juco Title 

The dispute over who is the best 
table tennis player in the junior college 
will be settled soon as play continues 
in the big all-college table tennis tourn- 

The tourney, co-sponsored by the 
Tiger Tales and the Student Council, 
got under way with a series of hotly- 
contested first round matches yester- 

First -round matches are to be com- 
pleted this week, with second-round 
contests to be completed before the 
Thanksgiving holidays begin next Wed- 
nesday at 4 p. m. 

With all college students and faculty 
members eligible, much interest is 
centered on the tourney as contestants 
battle for supremacy of the lively table 
game. If this tournament proves a 
fair. Other divisions, such as girls, 
success, it may become an annual af- 
mixed doubles, and all-faculty tourna- 
ments may be held later. 

Tournament rules and results will be 
posted in the clubroom. 

Witli the cooperation of participants 
and non-participants, this tournament 
can become an annual highlight of the 
school year in ACJC, as it has already 
become in other colleges.

The Booster Club 
Needs a Name! 

At the beginning of the year, all the 
juco students seemed interested in the 
organization of the booster club. Many 
students joined, went to the initial 
meetings, ordered club sweaters, and 
then forgot all about the rest. 

Attendance at the football games 
does nothing but fill up space and take 
a seat from someone else, if you do not 
go with a good college spirit and with 
the idea of backing your team "win or 
lose." There are students who go to 
the games and then say that they don't 
care who wins, all they came for was 
to see the game. This is not school 
spirit, this is not the idea that the 
booster club stands for. 

The booster club needs a name. You 
have been asked to leave suggestions in 
the office or give them to some club 
officer. Few names have been sub- 
mitted and there is need for many 

This is another chance to do your 
pari and profit by it. If you hand in 
a name, it may be yours that is chosen 
for the official booster club title. 

(let behind your club! Stand up and 
cheer for your college! Help ACJC

Thanks but in part:

Snooping around the halls trying to

worms, and clams. No casualties- yet!

Junior Chamber Has Problems 
With San Romani Memorial 

Last steps toward completion of the 
memorial fountain, honoring the be- 
loved Archie E. San Romani, are now 
in progress under the auspices of the 
Junior Chamber of Commerce. 

Painting of the shell, and installa- 
tion of the mechanism to control tin- 
colored lights which will illuminate the 
fountain at night, are all that remain 
to be done. When the fountain is com- 
pleted a ceremony of dedication will be 
performed with student participation, 
according to members of the Junior 
Chamber of Commerce, sponsors of the 

Completion of the project, begun in 
December, 1941 after San Romani's 
death, was halted because the intricate 
operating mechanism was not available 
during the war years. 

The fountain was designed by Mrs. 
Betty Jean Billings, now of Marine 
City, Cal., who won the contest in which 
the fountain design was selected. A 
marble carving of Will Rogers, made 
by Lotus Day, was Mrs. Billings' award 
for being first prize winner. Sugges- 
tions for the fountain design were sub- 
mitted by 6 5 students from junior high 
school, senior high school and junior 

The flagpole was provided by the 
Brown-Strauss Corporation, while the 
flag was donated by tlie American 

Mr. San Romani, who died June 15, 
1941 at the age of 41, had been an 
instrumental music instructor in Ar- 
kansas City for 16 years. Private pupils 
as well as regular school classes were 
under his direction. 

He had suffered since 19 3 2 from an 
illness which was diagnosed as leu- 
kemia, a blood condition in which the 


white corpuscles multiply and destroy 
the red corpuscles. 

Indicative of the high regard in 
which he was held by his former stu- 
dents and friends was the fine spirit 
in which the townspeople entered into 
the building of the memorial fountain. 

Speer Finds 
Cage Prospects 

Prospects are good for a winning 
Tiger basketball squad this season as 
the cagers work out for theih season 
opener at St. Johns of Winfield, De- 
cember 3. 

Six returning lettermen are back 
from last year's juco aggregation, along 
with five members of last year's hust- 
ling Bulldog team, state runners-up, to 
give Coach "Bunt" Speer a fine array 
of talent around which to mold a con- 
ference title-contender. 

Speer will find plenty of competition, 
however, as many other loop opponents 
will alto be "loaded," including the 
Pratt Beavers, who come here Dec. 5 
to open the conference play. 

Returning Tiger letterman are Bill 
Sneller, Malcolm Smith, Jim Turner, 
Rodney Wilson, But Chaplin, and Jack 

Those reporting from last year's

Bill Clay, Lyle Rutter, Joe Berry, and 
Doyle Gilstrap. 

Other candidates include C u r t 
Swaim, leading scorer in the state last, 
season with the Geuda Springs high 
school; Melvin Frizzell, a regular on 
the 1946-47 Garden City juco five, and 
Claus j hiesen, Elwood Keller, Bob 
Sneller, Frank Crank, and Arnold 

More candidates are expected at the 
conclusion of the football season. 

Juco Social Is 
Held Following 
El Dorado Game 

The second juco social was held in 
the auditorium following the El Dorado 

Because of the wet, cold weather, 
a large number of the victorious juco j 
student group did not attend the game 
or the social. Dancink and card games j 
were the main features of the social. 

Refreshments of cake and hot choco- 
late were served to the students. Also, 
the remainder of the hot dogs for the 
game were treats of the group. 

The committee responsible for our 
school socials are Mike Justice, Ethel 
Harvey, Phil Parker, Nadine Johnson, 
and Janell Estep. 

Because of the small turnout, the 
committee was left with some left- 
over food which the faculty members 
and the janitors divided up and took 

The committee expressed the desire 
for a larger attendance at future 

socials. They also asked that the stu- 
dent body be requested to leave the 
playing cards in the auditorium. 

Meet Mr. Ed 

Due to the fact that lie heard his 
favorite song, "Apple Blossom Wed- 
ding," one too many times, a member 
of the student group recently took the 
"biggesi step" of his life. This juco 
member, Bill. Crabtree, said "I do" 
November 8. to the former Rosemary 

Having cornered him lor a few mo- 
ments, lie disclosed a few facts about 
his likes and dislikes. 

His favorites are Rosie, math, brown, 
slow-dreamy music, sport clothes, box- 
ing, football, and loafing. 

When asked what were his favorite 
foods, lie replied. "Whatever she 
cooks." Must make a nice, agreeable 
husband. No? 

Bill is 5 feet, 9 V2 inches tall, and 
weighs about 155 pounds. He has 
brown hair and blue eyes. 

A majority of the 15 months he 
spent in the navy were spent in Japan. 

Engineering is the field that holds 
a great interest for Bill. He hopes to 
make his career along that line.

Here Friday 
For Grid Finale 

The final act of the 1947 football 
play will be presented tomorrow nighl 
by the Tigers and the Fort Scott Grey- 
hounds under the direction of their 
respective coaches. Curtain time is set 
for 7:45 p. in., on the Currj Field 

The plot to date finds the hero, the 
Tigers, with five conference victories 
and a chance for third place in the 
conference by winning tomorrow night. 

The Greyhounds have shown plenty 
of power this season and a good per- 
formance is expected. Over the years, 
the Arks have found the Easterners 
formidable opponents. 

If the Tigers display the same brand 
of football that they used in trimming 
El Dorado last week, the Greyhounds 
should he in for a rough evening. 

The conference title has already been 
annexed by the Hutchinson Blue 
Dragons, who are now engaged in a 
scramble for the Little Rose Bowl 
assignment at Pasadena. The Dragons 
are "assisted in their try by the Hutch- 
inson Junior Chamber of Commerce.

Do You Know 
Our Juco Song? 

Do you know our college song? No? 
We really have one and it's a good one 
so let's all learn it. 

If you've ever listened to the Juco 
Hour you've heard it as it's used as 
the theme song. It goes like this: 
Let us sing of A. C. college days 
With joyous songs and rousing cheers 
The happy friendships made will always 

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 ga\ will fly again today 
For A. C. Tigers brave and strong 
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. 



Sinks Bengals 

The Tigers suffered their fourth 
grid loss of the current season when 
the strong Independence jucos struck 
through the air for a 20 to conference 
victory November 5, at Independence. 

Paced by their brilliant halfback. 
Gene Gill, the Pirates scored two 
touchdowns in the second quarter and 
added another in the final period to 
hand the Tigers their worst conference 
defeat of the year. In blanking the 
Bengals, the Pirates moved past the 
Arks in the loop standings. 

All three Independence scores came 
on passes as the two elevens battled 
on even terms on the ground. 

The Tigers got off to a bad start 
with the Pirates recovering an Ark 
City fumble deep in Tiger territory. 
The Pirates were stopped, however, un- 
til a 22-yard pass play "from Worl to 
G. Carpenter put the home team into 
a 6-0 lead early in the second stanza. 

The Buccaneers made it 13-0 at 
halftime after Kellenberger heaved an 
aerial to Gill for 4 yards and a touch- 
down. Sturgeon kicked the point. 

The final tally came in the fourth 
quarter on a 3 2-yard pass from Kellen- 
berger le <lill. Si urgenn rmi\ eried. 

The Arks marched to the Indepen- 
dence 10 in the second quarter, their 
deepest penetration of the game, but 
were unable to score. 

An Independence junioi college grid 
queen was crowned during half-time 

Love may be blind but it sure finds 
its wav around in the dark. 

Dismal Night, 
But Tigers Win 
Over Grizzlies 

A determined Tiger football ^ squad 
made a damp, chilly evening a little 
warmer for their Ark City followers by 
blasting the highly-regarded El Dorado 
Grizzlies 12 to 0. November 14. at 
Curry Field. 

A small crowd huddled together in 
the stands to watch Coach "Bunt" 
Speer's hustling crew play their best 
football of the season in chalking up 
their fifth win against only three de- 

The Tigers punched their first touch- 
down across in the opening quarter 
when Earl Grinnell passed to George 
Ward from the twelve-yard line to cap 
a 5 0-yard scoring march. The conver- 
sion attempt failed, and the Bengals 
maintained their 6 to lead until the 
third quarter. 

A 2 2-yard punt runback by Grinnell 
to the Grizzlies' 43-yard line started the 
Tigers on another march to paydirt. 

With Grinnell, George and Charley 
Ward pacing the attacfl, the Arks 
marched to the four, from where Grin- 
nell crashed over. 

The Tigers had several other scor- 
ing opportunities. A highlight of the 
game came in the closing seconds of 
the first half when Tackle Bill Daniel 
intercepted an El Dorado aerial and 
returned it 01 yards to the Grizzlies' 
seven-yard line to halt the visitors' 
only scoring threat of the evening.

Meet Miss Co-Ed 

A freshman of the local halls is Ber- 
nice Uossi, today's Miss Co-ed. 

Born in the Mercy hospital on June

schools and graduated from ACHS with 
the clats of '47. 

Rating top place on her roll of fav- 
orites are hot rolls and butter, turkey, 
dressing, pumpkin pie, and all trim- 
mings, sounds as if she goes for food,

scientific subjects. Her favorite pastime 
is "riding in the rain." She also likes 
to cook and try new dishes.

You know, writing this column def- 
initely has its bad points. One soon 
learns there are three types of people in 
the reading audience: tl) Those who 
get mad because their names appear in 
the column; (2) Those who get mad 
because their names didn't appear in 
the column; and (3) Those who just 
get mad. 

A little incident which took plate 
in .VIr. Maag's speech class: 

.Veil Bell: "Did you know we 
were going to have a test in here?" 

Pat Gochis: "Yeah, I've got niy 
notes all ready." 

Many a familiar face was seen in the 
halls of ACJC last week as former stu- 
dents visited here for the Thanksgiving 
days. Among those spotted here and 
there around college were Iris Rahn. 
Jim Hollenback, Forrest Musson, How- 
ard Neal, Kermit Sandefur, Phil Smith, 
Charles Belt, Lenna Payton Dalton, and 
Daniel Stark from the class of '47; 
Harold Rice, j. c. '46, Norman Troxell, 
j. c. '40, and Logan McCabe. j. c, '38. 
Others were Ted Buckland. James Heck 
and Joyce Sewell. 

We've noticed that Larry Hay 
and Virginia Banks are still tramp- 
ing around together. When tramp- 
ing is said, tramping is meant. 
Larry's little ole car is still in the 
shop where (incidentally) Virginia 
put it.

Miss Hawley, on the Tiger Action

One of Mr. Johnson's brilliant 
remarks: "The British and English 
families are closely related." 

Happy characters over the holidays 
include Barbara Wahler because her 
future was home for the vacation days; 
Francis Cooper brightened the life of 
Rosemary Warren for a few days also. 

While this is being written no 
one knows for sure who will be 
going with whom to the formal 
dance with whom. However there 
are girls who have their hopes and 
boys who believe in keeping the

Here's hoping the boys didn't wait 
too long, and that the hopeful 
girls wern't disappointed.

Meet Mr. Ed 

"Oklahoma" is not only one of the 
best musical productions of recent years 
but to this title can also be attributed 
today's headliner, Bob Anstine. 

Born in Newkirk, Oklahoma, on July 
27. 1929, Hob is now a freshman in the 
halls of ACJC. After school he is em- 
ployed ;;t one of the local service sta- 

Favorites of his are fried chicken, 
apple pie topped with a large dipper of 
ice cream (any flavor 1 ), girls, blue, bow 
ties, baseball, girls, and more girls. 

This five foot, seven inch, 170 pound 
freshman has blue eyes and brown 
wavy hair. 

Bob's ideal girl must be about five 
feet tall (with an added three inches), 
have blue eyes, be a brunette, and, 
above all else, be a good sport who can 
keep up with the crowd. 

When asked his ambition. Bob re- 
plied: "To be an educated ornament."

Dr. Schwegler Coming Events 

Conducts Clinic 

In Jr. College 

"Your personality determines what 
you'll be 25 years from now," stated 
Dr. Raymond C. Schwegler, in his ad- 
dress to the junior college students and 
faculty November 19 during his three 
day stay in Arkansas City conducting 
his "Personality Clinic" in the high 
school and junior college. "Personality 
makes or breaks you," he said. 

In explaining a person's mind he com- 
pared it to three stories, or floors, of a 
building with the top floor occupied by 
the phase of things of which you are 
the proudest, reason, judgments, ideals 
and standards. The second floor con- 
tains the experiences of the individuals. 

"You never forget anything," Dr. 
Schwegler commented, much to the 
astonishment of the listening audience 
until he added, "you only mislay it." 

The third floor contains the escape 
mechanism, according to Dr. Schwegler. 
who explained the different escape 
mechanisms, compensation, replacement 
and projection. 

The second floor regulates 90 per 
cent of a person's living in controlling 
the "I like it" and the "I don't like it" 

"You, as a human, are the master- 
piece of created process, the pinnacle 
of operations," said the psychologist, 
"but you are still in the process of 
mastering the art of living." 

Following the lecture, Dr. Schwegler 
answered the questions of the juco stu- 
dents and faculty. 

Several students had personal con- 
ferences with Dr. Schwegler Nov. 19 
and 20. although his time was limited 
and he was unable to keep all the ap- 
pointments made by the students. 

Dr. Schwegler, dean-emeritus of the 
School of Education at the University 
of Kansas, is a consulting psychologist 
and lecturer and is now retired, devot- 1 
ing his time and talents to his per- 1 
sonalitv clinics as a service to the youth 
of this area.

Croon To Latest Tunes; 
Platters Rate High 
As Favorite Pastime 

On cold blizzardy nights there is 
nothing more enjoyable than to get 
comfy in front of a smoldering lire and 
croon tc some of the latest and favorite 

Among those which seem to be most 
popular are "Let Me Love You Tonight" 
which is sung by Nellie Lutcher with 
the flip-over being "He's a Real Gone 

The King Cole Trio rates high with 
their latest recording of "I Miss Yon 
So," and "I Think You Get What I 

In a vocal duet with the Hollywood 
Hucksters, Benny Goodman and Stan 
Kenton combine tale'nts with "Happy 
Blues," and "Them There Eyes." 

"Near You" by Francis Craig hits 
the soft spot of every sentimentalist. 
Also "Red Rose" which is on the back 
portrays equal smoqthness. 

Tex Williams shines with "That's 
What I Like About the West," and 
"Downtown Poker Club." Also his re- 
cording of "Smoke! Smoke! Smoke!" 
and "Roundup Polka" add a bit of life 
to the croon tunes. 

Count Basie gives out with that ever- 
lovin' "Jungle King" and "I Ain't Mad 
At You." 

"Civilization" by Woody Herman por- 
trays equal popularity as a recording 
also since Woody has the vocal. 

The waxings of "Them Durn Fool 
Tilings" and "Song of Indians'' by Red 
Ingle and the Natural Seven proves to 
be a new phase in this changing world. 

A new hit which sport a new vocalist 
makes the spotlight with Gordon Mac- 
Rae singing "A Fellow Needs a Girl" 
and "Body and Soul."

Improvements On 
Curry Field Are 
Being Considered 

Prospects for expansion of the seat- 
ing arrangement at Curry Field are 
bright, and important changes will take 
place probably before the 19 48 grid 
season opens, if plans discussed by the 
Board of Education at their November 
meeting are carried out. 

Larger crowds during the last five 
years have made seating arrangements 
inadequate, with fans overflowing the 
stadium for most of the Ark Valley and 
Junior College Conference games in 
good weather, and huge invasions of 
out-of town fans, as at the Wellington 
game, bringing a necessity for new 
stands. The heavy crowds have caused 
rapid deterioration of wooden stands 
and required constant repair work. 

Amos L. Curry, athletic director, is 
investigating plans and costs for the 
most suitable arrangements. Tentative 
plans call for a structure of reinforced 
concrete, steel braced wooden seat tops. 
It would run from goal line to goal line 
on the west side of the gridiron. The 
plan is for students to sit on the east 
side of the field, while older fans would 
have the new bleachers on the west side. 

Supt. Jerry J. Vineyard was directed 
by the school board to present a cost 
estimate of the new addition. The fi- 
nancing of the project will be from a 
special building fund of ?20,000, This 
money was raised by a tax levy for 
architectural plans and site for a new 
Junior College Trade School. While this 
money will not be used for some time, 
if applied on the Curry Field would 
save the taxpayers a higher levy on 
property tax next year which would be 
the only other source of income to 
build the new expansion.

Tigers Lose 
Final Game 
To Greyhounds 

An 80-yard gallop by Fort Scott half- 
back Claude Mahaiffe spelled defeat for 
a fighting Tiger eleven as they bowed 
to the Greyhounds, 6 to 0, in their final 
grid encounter of the season. November 

The hard-fought conference clash 
played in a sea of mud at Curry Field. 
with a cold north wind adding to the 
uncomfertabieness of players and the 
tew assembled spectators. 

Both teams were forced to abandon 
their air attack almost entirely, with 
the Tigers outgaining the Greyhounds 
in both rushing and passing. 

Included in the weary group of mud 
plastered gridsters who left the field 
alter the contest were several sopho- 
mores who had ended their ACJC foot- 
ball careers with splendid performances. 

The only score of the game came on 
Mahaiffe's long dash in the second 
quarter. The Arks threatened on sev- 
eral occasions but were unable to cross 
the goal line. 

Tlie loss gave the Arks an even .500 
record for the season in ten games. 
Coach Speer's eleven won five and lost 
four in conference play. Fort Scott 
ended their campaign with seven wins, 
two losses and a tie. The Arks wound up 
in the first division of the league, in 
fifth place. 

Goker 9s Giioss 

Tiger Squad I 

At the pep assembly November 21 
■ oach "Bunt" Speer revealed the elec- 
tion of Jim Coker as honorary captain 
of the lootball team. Among many 
loyal players Coker was elected the one 
who was most consistent in his playing 
on both offensive and defensive. 

Janice Upson, attired in a flashy 
sport jacket with clashing shirt and tie, 
presented the local Juco fans with a 
reading entitled "The Big Game." Miss 
Upson imitated Ted Husing in a play- 
by play description of a very exciting 
football game. 

The assembly was adjourned with the 
leading of several yells by the cheer- 

A college chorus chicken and noodle

Something new has been added to

Opens Against 

After opening their ID 4 7-4 8 cage

ball squad will pry the lid oft' the con- 
ference season at home tomorrow night 
against t h e highly-regarded Pratt 

Of course it is too early in the season 
lor any predictions, but the Tigers are 
expected to be hard to beat when they 
reach their mid-season peak. 

The Pratt jucos, under the direction 
of a new coach, are reputedly strength- 
ened bj several new additions, and a 
bang-up game is anticipated. 

The starting lineup for the Tigers 
will probably be chosen from t he follow- 
ing players: Bill Mitchell. Malcolm 
Smith, Lyle Rutter: Bill Clay, Jim Tur- 
ner and Bill Sneller. Others expected to 
see plentj of action include Rod Wilson, 
Bud Chaplin, Joe Berry. Doyle Gilstrap,

Have You The 

With the holiday vacation top in 
our minds and Christmas shopping al- 
ways marring the scene. Juco students 
are beginning to feel the "Christmas 
Air" (all right, so it is hot! Aren't you 
"dreaming of a white Christmas?") 

When school is dismissed Dec. 19, 
what are you going to do? First, you 
MUST complete that Christmas shop- 
ping so your conscience will be com- 
pletely clear. Next on the agenda is 
that job to earn the "moola" for said 

Now that all your worries are over 
(joke, that is!), suppose you recapture 
your youth. T'won't be hard, you know! 
Organize a caroling group! Even though 
you can't sing, shut-ins won't realize it 
and you'll put a bit of Christmas cheer 
in their hearts. 

How about fixing up some old toys 
or a Christmas package for those little 
shavers at the other end of town? 

With all this, you can really make 
it a "Merry Christmas to all, and to all 
a good night !"

Galle reported, "and all credits are 

In the conference, the group report- 
ed that the general trend at the present 
time is to postpone the specialized 
vocations until later years, which means 
the students go to school longer. 

Hosts for the occasion were' the deans 
of the various departments of KU.

Christmas in All Its Glory 
Is Just Around the Corner 

With the approach of December 25, 
homes and cities of the world take on 
the festive air as people prepare for 
Christmas, the birthday of Christ. 

Mystery fills the air as the old cus- 
tom of exchanging gifts from the deco- 
rated Christmas tree is fulfilled. From 
the first present placed beneath the 
tree to the last gift wrapped, young and 
old alike wonder what it holds in store 
for them. With the giving of presents 
comes the fun of wrapping each gift 
so the contents will not be disclosed, 
leaving many beautiful bundles of mys- 

The decorating of the evergreen is a 
task enjoyed by every member of the 
family. Children, especially, look for- 
ward to the day when father brings 
home the Christmas tree. Icicles, bright 
balls, strings of popcorn, angel hair, 
and other bright objects adorn the tree. 
The old custom of using the burning 
candles has been replaced with the use 
of differently shaped electric lights. 

Although few can still enjoy the 
sleigh rides which were so popular in 
the past years, to many, Christmas 
means a long trip home to loved ones 
and the renewing of old friendships. 

Accompanying the Christmas season 

is the feeling of "good will and peace on 
earth," and it becomes a time of the 
year when nearly everyone is friendly 
and forgiving. 

Holly is the flower of December and 
turquoise is her color. 

With the close of the Christmas 
season comes the beginning of a new 
year. This brings not only the tradi- 
tional "seeing out the old year and 
ushering in the new year" but also 
brings many new resolutions for the 
coming year. 

Thus the close of the old year and 
the beginning of the new are accom- 
panied by joy and festivity, giving an 
individual the "perfect" start for the 
year to follow.

Cagers After 
Fourth Win 
Of Season 

With three victories already under 
their belts, Coach "Bunt Speer's Tigers 
will be hot after win number four to- 
morrow night when they battle the 
strong Hutchinson Blue Dragons on the 
auditorium-gym floor. 

The Hutchinson jucos, state grid 
champs, are one of the early-season 
contenders for the western division con- 
ference cage title, and a triumph for 
the Arks tomorrow would put the 
Tigers in the thick of the champion- 
ship race. A fast, high-scoring contest 
is anticipated tomorrow night in this 
important encounter. 

The Tigers dropped a close game to 
Pratt for their only league game to 
date and their only defeat of the season. 
The Bengals have downed Coffeyville 
and Parsons since losing to the Beavers 
and hope to extend their winning streak 
against the Dragons. 

Bill Mitchell leads the Tigers in in- 
dividual scoring with 5 2 points in four 
games for an even 13.0 overage. Bill 
Clay is second with 2 6 points. The team 
averages 43.75 tallies per game. 

The Arks will not resume their reg- 
ular schedule until Jan. 2 when they 
meet Parsons again, this time at liome. 
Coach "Bunt" Speer will take the squad 
to Independence Dec. 2 9 and 30 for 
the Invitational tournament. Parsons 
will be the first opponent, making the 
third Tiger-Cardinal meeting in three 
weeks, each time on a different court. 
The Arks won the first one, 51-41, in 
the Cardinals' home nest. 

Pratt Hands Tigers 
Their First Defeat 

The Tigers went down to their first 
defeat of the basketball season Dec. 5 
when a scrapping Pratt Beaver crew 
edged the Arks 5 to 4 5 in the first 
home game of the year. 

The Tigers lost the services of their 
two regular guards, Lyle Rutter and 
Malcolm Smith, early in the second half 
but managed to stay close behind the 
Beavers up until the final gun. 

After the Bengals had grabbed an 
early 14-9 lead, Pratt came back to 
maintain a 25-18 halftime edge. The 
Timers outplayed their opponents in the 
second half but were unable to over- 
come the wide seven-point deficit. 

Pratt successfully employed an all 
over the court rushing style of play 
and outhustled the Tigers under the 
the baskets. 

L. Radar was the individual scoring 
leader for the victors with 14 points. 
Bill Clay and Bill Mitchell led the 
Tiger point-making with 12 and 10 
counters, respectively. 

Ledeker Is Juco 
Ping Pong Champ 

Robin Ledeker, sophomore, became 
champion of the ping pong tournament, 
which was sponsored by the Tiger Tales 
and the Student Council, after com- 
peting with Bob Sneller in the finals. 
The scores were 20-22, 22-11, 24-22, 
and 21-16. 

In the semi-finals Bob Brady was 
defeated by Ledeker. The scores being: 
26-28, 21-11, 21-11, and 21-15. Sneller 
won over "Chuck" Hutchinson with the 
score of 21-19, 21-17, and 21-11, which 
put him in the finals to play Ledeker. 

A tin cup with the inscription "Ping 
Pong Champion of 1947" printed on a 
banner around the cup was presented to 
the winner and also a dollar which was 
taken from the fund which had been 
collected from the contestants. Sneller, 
who came in second, received eighty 
cents for his achievement.

Cagers Trounce 
Parsons Cards 
54-41, There 

The Tigers pulled away in the second 
half to trounce the Parsons Cardinals 
54-41 in a non-league contest at Par- 
sons. Dec. 12. Big Bill Mitchell scored 
2 4 points to pace the Arks to their 
second win in as many nights and their 
third conquest in four tilts this season. 

The Tigers took an early 6-1 lead and 
led nearly al lthe way but never by a 
comfortable margin until the second 
half. The Bengals held a slender 21-20 
edge at the intermission. 

Coach Speer used his entire 14-man 
squad in the fray. 

Spanish Club Begins 
Study of Argentina 

A panel discussion on the general 
features of Argentina life and culture 
was led by Miss Anne Hawley, sponsor, 
at the meeting of the Spanish Club Dec. 
8 in the junior college clubroom. Each 
member of the group chose one partic- 
ular phase of Argentina to report on. 
The group is studying such subjects as 
Argentinan art, literature and science. 

Jean Flannery, president, presided 
over the business meeting, after which 
a Spanish game was played. 

Refreshments were served by Bill 
Ramsey, program chairman. 

"Lips that touch wine shall never 
touch mine," said the ACJC coed. And 
after she graduated she taught school 
for years and years and years.

Tigers Whip 
Coffeyville In 
Last Seconds 

With only five seconds to play in the 
overtime period, Reserve Joe Berry 
sank a field goal from close range to 
give the Tigers an exciting 32-31 non- 
conference victory over the Coffeyville 
Red Ravens here, Dec. 11. 

The Red Ravens held a big 20-12 lead 
at halftime and increased it to 25-13 
before the Tigers began a spirited rally 
to tie the score at 29 all at the end of 
the regulation playing time, 

Coffeyville scored a free toss in the 
five-minute extra period, but Malcolm 
Smith knotted the score again on a 
charity. Wade once again put the vis- 
itors out in front with another free 
throw, but the Tigers grabbed the ball 
and Berry hit just before the final gun. 

Jim Turner led the Arks in scoring 
with nine points.

Tigers Edge Out 
Johnnies 44-42 

The Tiger cage squad started out on 
the right foot towards a successful 
19 47-4 8 season by edging a potent St. 
John's Eagle quintet 44 to 42, in an 
opening non-league thriller at Win- 
field, Dec. 3. 

A field goal by dependable Malcolm 
Smith, veteran guard, brought victory 
to the Tigers after a close, action- 
packed struggle. 

Both teams showed good offensive 
play for a season opener. The Arks lost 
to the Johnnies, 35-2S in their '46 

The Tigers overcame an 11-6 lead 
to hold a slim 17-16 half-time edge. 
The Tigers led throughout most of the 
second half but the Eagles rallied to 
pull up to a 4 2-4 2 deadlock. Smith then 
hit the game-winning goal with about 
ten seconds to play. 

Bill Mitchell led the Ark City scor- 
ing with eleven points. Joe Berry turn- 
ed in an exceptional rebounding job for 
the Bengals. Center Jerry Otte starred 
for the Eagles, dumping in 22 points.

Open Letter From 
Social Committee 

Dear ACJC Students, 

Just a few lines to let you know that 
we have appreciated your interest and 
attendance at our socials. During this 
semester, which is nearing the close, 
the socials have been successful. You. 
the students, are responsible for these 
successes. We also want to thank every 
student who has helped individually 
such as cookie baking. Christmas dec- 
orating, and dish washing, for that 
work was invaluable. 

Now that we have thanked you, we 
have one more thing to ask. Will you 
help us continue to keep our good 
record next semester? 

Thanks again. 

The Social Committee 
P. S. Concerning socials for the forth- 
coming semester, it has been suggested 
to the committee that socials of a more 
conservative nature be presented so 
that a more elaborate Tigerama might 
be afforded. Comment from the student 
body would be appreciated. 

Those wishing to submit their opin- 
ions may do so by dropping a note in 
the Tiger Tales office or verbally to 
any of the social committee. 


Here Come Some 
More Of Those 
New Year's Promises 

Every January people make 'em and 
people break 'em. What do we mean? 
Why, we are talking about New Year's 
resolutions, of course. Here are a few 
people who solemnly swear to keep the 
proposals which they have made: 

John Thomas: "I faithfully promise 
myself never to buy another car." 

Mike Justice: "I resolve to raise 
fewer grades and more heck." 

Catherine Stover: "I am going to get 
my French lesson, be on time to French 
class and. . . not make any more resolu- 

"Clem" Fritchman: "I promise my- 
self not to study on Sunday." 

Ra Gyne Hawkins: "I make my reso- 
lutions on the 18th." 

Marvin Wilhite: "I'm going to be a 
good kid and get my lessons." 

David Hearne: "I think I'll try to be 
more ambitious." 

Come on, dig that head out of that 
book, exams are almost over and it is 
no use to study now!

First of all, a great big congratula- 
tions to the Tiger basketball squad for 
winning that Independence tournament. 
That was a wonderful .job and the 
trophy is wonderful, too!

The second childhood of several juco 
studes came into evidence just before 
Christmas with those plastic squealing 
piggy banks. Doris Deets had one for 
her little brother. . . . she said! How-

someone discovered that the coin didn't 
have to go all the way in to make the

Tigers Take 



Coacli "Bunt Speer's Tiger basketball 
squad returned liome from the Inde- 
pendence Invitational juco cage meel 
with a championship trophy and a 
host of other laurels to show for their 
holiday efforts. 

After a hectic trip home ( the final 
lap of which was made by Missouri 
Pacific railway from Cedar Vale after 
the school bus was halted on an icy 
hill) the Tigers were weary but proud 
of their tournament showing. The Arks 
copped three victories in two days, an- 
nexed the trophy, received four all- 
tournament team berths, and were 
highly commended by tourney officials 
and dignitaries on their excellent play 
and fine sportsmanship. 

The Independence two-day tourney 
was held December 29 and -in. with 
eight teams participating. 

Ark City opened their tourney play 
December 29 in the 7:20 game by 
trouncing Parsons. 5 2 to 40. Bill Mit- 
chell, Bill Clay and Joe Berry paced 
the Bengal scoring in this contest. 

The Orange and Black took the 
court the following afternoon in a 
semi-final clash with the host team, 
the strong Independence Pirates. Play- 
ing their best game of the season, the 
Tigers downed the Pirates 4 6 to 3 8, to 
move into the finals. Bill Clay and Joe 
Berry led the Ark City offensive attack 
against the Pirates, with Lyle Rutter 
and Malcolm Smith sharing defensive 

The Tigers grabbed a wide 17 to 3 
lead on the El Dorado Grizzlies and 
romped in to a 50 to 40 win and the 
tourney championship. The Speermen 
held a 50 to 30 lead in the finals until 
the Grizzlies narrowed the gap on Tiger 
substitutes in the closing minutes. Joe 
Berry with 17 points and Rod Wilson 
with 13 topped the locals in the final 

Bill Mitchell and Hill Clay both pour- 
ed points through the hoop consistently 
and rebounded well to earn a position 
on the first team in the tournament all- 
star selections. Lyle Rutter also earned 
a first team berth on the strength ol 
his sparkling defensive play. Rutter 
bottled up Dave Dennis of Independence 
and Dob Garcia of E] Dorado, holding 
them to field goals between them 
which was far below their usual out- 

Big Joe Berry played outstanding 
ball during the tournament and was 
awarded a place on the second all- 
tournament learn. Berry was the lead- 
ing Tiger scorer- for the tournament 
with 39 points ill three games for a 
13.0 average. 

The tournament was a booming suc- 
cess as far as the Tigers are concerned, 
despite the weather difficulties en- 
countered on the trip home. 

Hutch Back Named To 
Juco Ail-American Team 

Harold Nevins, flashy Hutchinson 
Dragon back, has been selected by 
N.E.A. as one of the 19 47 Junior Col- 
lege All-America team. Nevins is rated 
a last track man, also is a steady block- 
er, accurate tackier, a powerful runner 
and ball carrier, good passer and a 
kicking specialist. Nevins was the only 
man from Kansas who made the first 

Eldon Zollars, Dragon center was 
selected on the second team. Three 
other Kansans who were given honor- 
able mention are Bill Kelly, El Dorado: 
Gerald Beaman, Fort Scott, and Gyenn 
Percy, Iola., 

Quintet Earns 
Third Win 
Over Cardinals 

In a ragged slow-moving game, the 
Tigers rolled to a 3 4 to 2 4 victory over 
the hapless Parsons Cardinals on the 
auditorium-gym floor January 2. The 
triumph was the third one-sided win for 
the Arks over the Cards and il marked 
the eighth win in nine starts this sea- 
son for the Bengals. 

The Tigers showed a letdown in form 
after their tournament play at Inde- 
pendence earlier in t he week but never- 
theless defeated the visitors in easy 
fashion. Both teams were playing their 
fourth same within five days and the 
effect showed in the low final score. 

Coach Speer's crew hung up a big 
3 2-12 lead at hall-time and were never 
in serious danger. The Tigers were able 
to score but five points in fifteen min- 
utes at the start of the second half, bul 
Parsons was also cold and the gap was 
not shortened. 

Forward Joe Berry continued to pace 
the Orange and Black attack, ramming 
in 13 points. Mauhiney led the Redbirds 
with eight tallies. 

The Tigers had previously defeated 
Parsons 5 4-41 at Parsons and 5 2-4<i at 
I he Independence tournament.

Nighr Classes Begin in 
Shorthand, Accounting 

Night classes in shorthand, taught by 
Barney Getto and accounting, taught 
by Dale Hanson, began January 0, and 
will continue until the end of the 

The accounting class meets on Wed- 
nesday evenings for two hours and 
three hours college credits will be given 
for the course. Five hours credit will 
be given for the shorthand course which 
meets on Monday. Tuesday, and Thurs- 
day evenings. There are approximately 
ten persons enrolled in each class. 

Cagers To Meet 
El Dorado 
Tomorrow Night 

The junior college Tigers will go to 
El Dorado tomorrow night to meet the 
dangerous Grizzlies in a vital western 
| division contest. The Arks will then 
j travel to Pratt the following Friday to 
tangle with the Beavers, the first team 
to defeat the Bengals this season. 

The Tigers, with their best cage 
squad in many years, have run up nine 
victories against only two reversals. 
(These figures do not include last Tues- 
day's encounter with Independence). 
However, both losses have been to 
western division conference foes, Pratt 
and Dodge Cily. which gives them a 
league standing of two wins and two 

Therefore the Arks must win both 
of their next two road games — at E) 
Dorado tomorrow and at Pratt January 
23 in order to retain a chance at the 
western pennant. If the Tigers can 
trim the Grizzlies and the Pratt five, 
they must then knock off Garden Citv 
and Dodge City at home the following 

Here is the Tiger schedule for the 
remainder of January: 

Jan. 13 — Independence, here (non 
league ) . 

Jan 10 — At El Dorado. 

Jan. 23 — At Pratt. 

Jan. 30 — Garden City, here. 

Jan. 31 — Dodge City, here. 

Cagers Win Over 
Garden City; Lose 
To Dodge City 

The Tigers returned home Sunday 
with an even split in their two-day 
trek to western Kansas last week-end. 
The Tigers drubbed Garden City, 47- 

3 8 on Friday night but absorbed a 

4 9-3 7 defeat at the hands of the league- 
leading Dodge City jucos on Saturday. 

The Arks, paced by forward Rod 
Wilson, easily disposed of Garden City 
on Friday for their eighth straight vic- 
tory. Wilson potted ten points in the 
first lour minutes and went on to rack 


points for the evening. 

Dodge City's potent Conks blasted 
the Tiger win skein the following night 
by giving the Arks their second defeat 
in eleven games this season. The Conks 
led bv only two points, 19-17, at the 
half-time but pulled away in the second 
half to remain undefeated in loop com- 

Dodge City successfully employed a 
tight zone defense which stymied the 
Tiger offensive attack.

Do Your Part In The 
March of Dimes 

It may not be so hard for you to pass 
by the child on the "March of Dimes" 
poster, but if you met the same little 
boy on the street and he held out his 
hand, looked at you, and said, "Please, 
join the March of Dimes." could you 
refuse? Could you turn your back and 
walk away knowing that, because of you 
and others of your kind, that small 
child might never walk again? 

We do not realize the importance and 
the significance of the drive for dimes 
for the aid of those afflicted with in- 
! an tile paralysis. We do not realize 
what it is like to lose the use of an 
arm or leg, and we do not realize how 
they appreciate every penny that is 
given to help fight their enemy. If it 
were a battle in which we fought with 
planes and guns, we would give our 
ali. Why can't we give more for the 
battle for health? 

What if lie were your son or brother? 
Could you forget? Remember the chil- 
dren who are saying, "Please join the 
March of Dimes that I might walk 
again." Remember and give. 

Bernyce Deserves A 
Cheer for Swell Job 

Many students do their jobs without 
pomp and glory and included in this 
thanks-deserving group is Bernyce 
Thomas, juco freshman. 

Bernyce volunteered at the beginning 
of the year to be the finance chairman 
for the student council. This means she 
is chairman of the concession stand and 
has charge of the ordering of the pop 
and candy and sees that the stand is 
open at all games, both basketball and 

Because she likes this type of work, 
she was chosen finance chairman of the 
pep club during high school and never 
saw a football game during her senior 
year. Bernyce also never saw a football 
game this year because it 5s her job to 
remain in the concession stand. 

Bernyce says she likes to work with 
people and it is a good way to get 
acquainted with new students. Another 
of her duties as finance chairman is to 
see that the coke machine in the club- 
room is always filled and working. 

Bernyce's work takes a lot of her 
lime and keeps her from enjoying the 
games as others do. so to her the juco 
students express their appreciation. 

Hi Gang! Have you managed to re- 
cuperate from the shock of receiving 
those dreaded mid-term report cards? 
Here's hoping they weren't as bad as 
you expected. 

"Why did Sir Lancelot ask the 
innkeeper for a can opener?" 

"Because he had a flea in his 
knight clothes." 

There have been a few notes in the 
little wooden box in the clubroom which 
will be brought to light next issue. We'd 
like to remind you again, however that 
these notes must me signed if you wish 
to have them printed. 
Tlie basketbell team has been 
playing some swell games this sea- 
son. Keep up the good work, guys. 

If you are trying to live by your 
wits and are making only half a living, 
there is an obvious conclusion to lie 

Yes, former students Dale Smith, 
Norman Troxell and Bob Curry are 
all candidates for bachelor of 
science degrees at Kansas State 
college. Dale's is in industrial 
chemistry, Norman's is in business 
administration and Bob's is jn 
chemical engineering. Also at lv- 
State, Dick Warren, ,i. c. '45, was 
named to the Who's Who Among 
Students in American Universities 
and Colleges. Selections are made 
on the basis of scholarship and 

A few of the "jucoers" finished their 
juco work or transferred to other col- 
leges at the close of the first semester. 
With them go our best wishes and be- 
hind them remain many memories of 
(he days in ACJC. 

Dui'ing a conversation in the 
halls a few days ago, Dnana Bos- 

well was suddenly interrupted by 
the question, "Do you have a class 
next hour?" When she assured the 
person that her next hour was free, 
Rosemary Crabtree, the late Rose- 
mary Longshore, asked this favor: 
"Please take me home in our car, 
I think the meatloaf is burning." 
(Tell me, is it a good nose or the 
usual worries of a new bride?) 

"Will you give to the old ladies' 

"With pleasure, I'll send my mother- 
in-law right over." 

Saleslady: "These are satin 

Custmoer: "Don't you have any 
that haven't been used before?'' 

Getting lost, joining new classes, pay 
dues, and enjoying the comradship of 
new classmates are only a few of the 
"definitely different" experiences since 
the beginning of the second term, 
Mr. Maag: "Demosthenes, the 
great orator was asked the most 
important part in the delivery of 
a speech. He answered first, 'Ac- 
tion.' For the second most import- 
ant he said, 'Action.' Ranking third

Have you noticed the great ping pong 
doubles tournament going on in the 
clum room? It looks like a swell battle. 
May the best pair win. 
The Tigers have two games here 
this week-end. Friday, Conqs; and 
Saturday, Broncs. Let's all turn 
out for the big games. 

Well, guess we had better stop all 
this chatter and get the paper to the

One Exam Every Two Years- 
That's College Life in Britain 

Breakfast in your room, one exam*) 
every two years, and classes if you're I 
in tlie mood — those are a few features 
of college life in Britain. A life that's 
being shared by several hundred Amer- 1 
icans — mostly veterans — currently at- 
tending English universities. 

Living and studying in colleges built 
before Columbus discovered America, 
these Yanks are enrolled in institutions 
ranging from Oxford and Cambridge to 
the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and 
the Leathersellers' Technical College. 
And according to Paul Pearson, report- 
ing on college life abroad for Varsity, 
the young man's magazine — Americans 
are deeply impressed by England's sys- 
tem of education. 

"Casual" is the word to describe the 
English student, says Pearson. He is 
more serious than his American coun- 
terpart (but no more "eager"), is jolly 
without being a back-slapper, and tends 
to "talk shop" constantly. Instead of 
cheering wildly at a soccor or cricket 
game, he can be counted on — in cases 
of extreme excitement — to say, "Well 
done, Cambridge!" 

Modest and quiet application, the 
Varsity article states, is the keynote of 
the English educational method. De- 
grees are awarded only on the basis of 
long exams given at the end of two or 
three years of study. Classes are op- 
tional, but "tutors" require essays at 
the weekly meeting with students, and 
follow these with long, involved dis- 
cussions. The luxuries of breakfast in 
your room are countered by heavier re- 
strictions on leaving the college area 
in the evenings or for week-ends. 

Pearson concludes his overseas re- 
port to Varsity by saying that English 
school officials expected the Americans 
to act like "cowboys." Instead, he de- 
clares, they now say: "The Yankees are 
kind, thoughtful, and quick to return 
hospitality. And their personality is 
second to none." 

Goker, FetteroSf Finish 
Junior College Work 

Completing their juco work at the 
close of the first semester were James 
Coker and Gerald Fetterolf who will 
receive their diplomas with the grad- 
uating class in the spring. Gerald Fet- 
terolf will begin his sophomore work 
at KIT this term. 

Virgil Work also began classes at 
Kansas State with the opening of tin- 
second semester. Transferring to Wash- 
burn at Topeka were Jeanne Smith and 
Lynn Smith. 

Bill Mitchell transferred to Pittsburg 
State Teachers college.

School Supplies 
Collected To Be 
Sent to Poland 

Juco Activities Featured 
Over College Program 

Student activities were again high- 
lighted over KSOK on the Jan. 20 
presentation of 'Juco Hour." 

The program featured a speech by 
Richard Cullers entitled "They Shall 
Walk," and an oration, "The Amazing 
Paradox" by Ronald Holdredge. Cul- 
lers' speech was in support of the cur- 
rent "March of Dimes' drive for the 
fight against Infantile Paralysis. 

During ttie musical interludes Glen 
Burns, accompanied by his wife, Betty, 
sang "Serenade of the Bells" and "Peg 
of My Heart," 

Janell Estep was the announcer. 

"Darling, am I the first man you 
ever loved?" 

"Yes, and the most awkward!" 

A drive for tin 1 collection of school 
supplies to be sent to Poland is under- 
way headed by Miss Anne Hawley, lan- 
guage instructor. 

Miss Hawley began this drive after 
sli^ heard B. M. Clark's report at the 
last UNESCO meeting in which he 
stated that pencils are five dollars now 
in Poland and that a single sheet of 
paper is priced at 75 cents in Greece. 

Any school supplies such as paper; 
pencils, new and used; erasers or any 
other useful item of school supplies are 
welcome. Students who wish to cou- 
ti Unite are asked to place their supplies 
in the box in Miss Hawley's room, 114, 
which lias been placed there for that 

Meet Miss Co-Ed 

This week's Co-ed has ambitions in 
the teaching field and desires to be 
either an English or history instructor. 
When she is graduated from juco, 
Catherine Stover plans to finish her 
college education at Emporia State 
Teachers College. 

Catherine has many favorites, in- 
cluding devil's food cake with choco- 
late icing, talking, reading, blue, and. 
although her choice of songs varies 
with each change in the Hit Parade, 
her present favorites are "You Do" and 
"Wish I Didn't Love You So." 

Catherine was born in N'ewkirk, July 
14, 1929, and at the age of three weeks, 
moved to Arkansas City. She has at- 
tended local schools, with the exception 
of part of her seventh grade while she 
lived in Dwight. 111., and was graduated 
from ACHS with the class of '47. 

Today's freshman is 5 foot six inches 
tall and has brown hair and brown eyes. 

Current Affairs

brown hair, brown eyes, and a spark- 
ling personality — that's the man of the 
hour, Glen W. Tuttle.

look at the moon, and finally, go to 
bed." ( Queer hoy! ) 

After he is graduated from juco, 
Glen plans to attend the Baptist College

you plan to do when you complete your 
schooling?," he answered: 

"Find a job, settle down, and look 
for a woman in my spare time."

Board Favors 
Expansion at 
Curry Field 

A note of optimism for the pro- 
posed expansion of seating on the west 
side of Curry Field was struck Feb- 
ruary 2 at the meeting of the school 
board. At the meeting, Dr. Jerry J. 
Vineyard, superintendent of schools, 
was also unanimously re-elected to a 
cwo-year term as superintendent. 

Dr. Vineyard reported to the board 
hat an investigation had revealed 
hat the proposed expansion could be 
■ompleted for about $ 10,000, plus labor 
Wh'm Dr. Vineyard said how estimate 
■ould be made on the labor cost, Dr. 
n. Claude Young, veteran board mem- 
ber, suggested that the high school 
and junior college boys might be will- 
ing to help on the project.. 

Atlhough no formal action was taken 
after a small rough-scale model of the 
projec was exhibited, the board mem- 
bers apparently viewed the project 
with considerable more optimism than 
at the January meeting when the esti- 
mates appeared far to exceed the ap- 
proximately $20,000 budgeted. 

Largely favorable discussion was 
sneountered when a high school stu- 
ient council request for some form 
of recreation during the slack noon 
time after lunch and before classes 
reconvene. Ivan Upson moved that 
the junior college students be included 
in the program and the board agreed. 
The board recommended that the coun- 
cil work out a program covering sev- 
eral types of entertainment including 
athletic events. 

Juco Play 
To Be Given 
March 19 

A three act comedy, "The Lilies 
of the Field", to be presented March 
19 in the junior high auditorium, has 
been selected as the annual junior 
college play, Miss Pauline Sleeth, 
speech instructor, announced last week. 

Eleven characters appear in the 
drama most important of whom are 
he twins, Catherine and Elizabeth, 
who receive "unusual" birthday gifts 
from Grandmother. 

"These gifts open up delightful 
opportunities to prove the ingenuity 
and originality of each girl to meet 

new situations and — — of course 

there is an intriguing love story." 
says Miss Sleeth. "It is unlike any 
play ever given by the Arkansas City

when the Tiger Tales went to press 
but tryouts for the parts were in prog-

"It's bad enough to be in a deep 
dark hole, let alone have to strain 
your eyes to see what you are doing." 

The above, is a statement taken 
from a letter placed in the journalism 
box urging the placing of flourescent 
lighting in the juco rooms, especially 
the study hall, labs, and club room. 
Because the letter was not signed, 
it could not be published, but it should 
not be merely thrown away and for- 

Students as well as faculty mem- 
bers deserve good lights in the rooms 
in which they read and write. Several 
years ago, the high school students 
began a campaign for better lights 
in their rooms and last year a flour- 
escent lighting system was installed 
in the study hall and library. 

No one can deny the impi - ovement 
these new lights made in those 
rooms — we need improvements of that 
type down here, don't we? 

Although plans are underway for 
a new junior college building, it is 
evident that this cannot be achieved 
to the point of holding classes in the 
new building for some time. In the 
meantime, it would be well worth the 
money that would be spent, to have 
a little more light on the subject down 

Junior has been working on a new 
phonograph needle that has already 
broken all records. 

Three former students, class of '47,

Hi, you'all! How are you surviving 
this lovely (?) winter weather? If 
you can stand it, perhaps you can 
stand the column for the week. 


Speaking of the weather, it's been 
perfect for skating lately, hasn't it? 
Although a lot of us have been skat- 
ing around corners on our unskatable 
bodies, and some lucky studes have 
ice skates and have found the nearest 
ponds. Seems that Georgia Rahn has 
had some very sore muscles! 


The halls seem kinda lonely lately, 
don't they without the shining counte- 
nances of Jean and Lynn Smith, Jim 
}oker, Gerald Feterolf and all those 
ithers who are not with us this seme- 
ster. Jean and Lynn are at Washburn, 
you know, Jim is atO.U. and Gerald 
at K.U. However, there are always 
those who have joined us or rejoined 
us this semester. There's Petty 
McVay, Kathleen Follett and the 
Maris family, to mention only a f?w.

Science has invented an earthquake

an alarm clock that goes off like an 
earthquake more boys would get to 
school on time. (Also, then Herb 
Thomson wouldn't need those two 
alarm clocks of his.) 

Last week was Sadie Hawkin's 
week in the high school. Bob Brady 
was arguing with Jeri Acton that this 
tradition also included the junior col- 
lege, and therefore she should take 
him to the game with St. John's. Won- 
der if she ever gave in? 


By the way, do you know what the

wasn't it grand to see them again. 
Among those around the TT office 
were Rodney Maxson, Betty May

and Melville Marnix, Forrest Musson, 
Norman Troxell, Jim Hollenback, Iris 
Rahn, and Howard Neal, K — Staters. 
Then there were Bob Dellinger and 
Diane Danley from KU. 


It seems that juco students aren't 
able to afford infantile paralysis con- 
sidering the response to the March of 
Dimes. Total take was less than $10.

Quintet Faces 

El Dorado in 
Final Tilt 

The Orange and Black quintet have 
two more scheduled games this sea- 
son. The Tigers travel to Coffeyville 
Feb. 20th and the 27th bringing the El 
Dorado Grizzlies here for the regular 
season finale. 

In early season games the Coffey- 
ville Red Ravens went down in defeat 
in an overtime with the Bengals by a 
32-31 margin. 

The Grizzlies and the locals have 
split a game apiece. The first game, 
the Speermen defeated the El Dorado 
live in the finals of the Independence 
Invitational tournament El Dorado 
then came through on their home 
court to give the Tigers a 40-35 con- 
ference loss. 


Speermen, Lose 
To Hutchinson, 
35-32, There 

In a hard-fought game and termed 
by the officials, "one of the cleanest of 
the season", the Hutchinson Blue Dra- 
gons defeated the Bengals 35-32 at 
Hutch Friday, Feb. 6. 

The Tigers defeated the Hutchinson 
quintet in easy fashion in December, 
51-39, but the home-court jinx still 
held good for the Dragons as the 
locals dropped in only 4 out of 9 free 
throws while the Dragons hit 7 of 
their 9 to give them the 3 point 

Both teams played a good brand 
of ball, but the Speermen were un- 
able to hit the hoop as consistantly 
as the Red and Blue. 

With a half-time score of 17-11 
the Arks came back strong the second 
half but were unable to close the gap. 

Raines paced the Dragon attack 
with 13 points while his running mate 
Woodall, hit for 7 points. 

Bill Clay and Rod Wilson netted 9 
apiece for the locals and Joe Berry 6. 

Dean K.R. Galle will attend the 
American Association of Junior Col- 
leges Convention in Kansas City, 
Feburary 24 to 27. 

El Dorado Cager 
Dies on Court 

Big Jim Frisby, six feet seven inch 
center of the El Dorado Grizzlies, 
died of an heart attack suffered 
during a practice session January 28. 

It was believed by a physician 
that death occurred instantly upon 
his collapse. 

Flowers were sent by the Arkansas 
City Junior College student body for 
the funeral. A letter of sympathy 
from the student council was sent to 
the student body of the El Dorado 
Junior College. 


Cagers Win 
Over Johnnies, 
In Close Game 

The Juco Tigers defeated the St. 
Johns of Winfield by a narrow 44-42 
margin here February 4. The score 
being identical to that of the curtain 
raiser for both teams on the Johnnies 
home court. 

The locals led throughout the game 
until the final minutes of play when 
the Eagles tied the score. With two 
minutes of play remaining, Joe Berry, 
Tiger forward, pushed in one of his 
5 baskets to give the Speermen the 
2 point edge. The Orange and Black 
then stalled for the remaining seconds 
to spell victory. 

The visitors were paced by Otce, 
the Johnnie center, with 17 points 
while Clay and Berry led the Bengal 
attack with 12 and 10 points respec- 

. — o — : 

Dodge City Downs 
Speermen 35-25 

Dodge City remained at the top of 
the Western divison by downing the 
Tigers 35-25 here Jan. 30. The Conks 
previously defeated the Spearmen 49- 
37 during the Arks' western swing 
earlier in January. 

Dodge City led all the way, building 
up a 19-12 halftime margin. The en- 
tire Dodge City quintet scored well 
throughout the entire game while 
the locals offensive out-put was 
limited by a tight zone defense. 

Bill Clay paced the Bengals with 
9 points.

The Garden City Broncos failed in 
their second attempt to throw the juco 
Tigers when the Bengals stuck tight 
in the saddle and rode home to an 
easy 47-36 victory here Jan. 31. 

The Orange and Black grabbed an 
early lead and had little trouble in 
pulling a repeat performance of an 
earlier 47-38 win in the Bi-oncs' home

Being born on February 20, 1925, 
in Arkansas City, William J. Smith 
(Bill, that is), has spent the "best 
years of his life" in the local town, 
with local friends, and in the local 

Favorite pastirnes of Bill's are bowl-

outstanding pet peeve is losing hours 
in school. 

Bill was in the Infantry during the 
last war and saw action overseas. He 
was in the service for 32 months. 

A "war-bachelor", Bill is not marri-

(Definitely different!) 

Brown hair, blue eyes, 5' 9", plea- 
rant personality, and a big smile 
describe this sophomore who is majoi 1 -

Atlanta, Cambridge, Dexter, and Ce- 
dar Vale. 

Language Clubs

An assembly was scheduled to have 
been presented by the language de- 
partment Wednesday morning. 

The program included a Spanish 
song by Elizabeth Ousley, entitled 
"Mar"; a skit in French presented 
by Janell Estep, Ann Roehl, and Jeri 
Acton; a German song by Glen Burns 
entitled "Ich Liebe Dich"; and a

I Square Dancing 
Class Is Offered 

A large group of students have 
signed up in the junior college office 
for the chance to learn the basic steps 
of square dancing to be taught some 
evening soon by Mr. Walt Fesler. 

The idea was originated after the 
last juco social when it was necessary 
to spend time learning the steps be- 
fore the dancing could actually begin. 

Those planning at press time to 
attend the meeting are Kenneth Falls, 
Richard Cullers, Bob Larson, Edward 
Galle, Genevieve Goff, LaGyne Haw- 
kins, Edna Robson, Mike Justice, 
Catherine Stover, Phil Parker, Georgia 
Rahn, and Dorothy Haslett, Berneice 
Bossi, and Virginia Vaughan. 

TAC's Plan 
Campaign To 
Sell Emblems 

The Tiger Action Club has launched 
a campaign to sell the Tiger head em- 
blems which were ordered for the club 
members last fall to be sewn on the 
white sweaters. 

The student council advanced the 
money for the purchase and stands to 
lose a rather large amount if the club 
members who ordered the emblems do 
not buy them. 

The word "Tijer", however, which 
was to have been worn across the back 
of the sweaters are being sold at a 
reduced price of sixty cents for sou - 
venirs, or for pillow top=*. 

They are available to any student 
who desires them. They are not suit- 
able for the booker organization be- 
cause of the mistake in the colors 
which are y n llow and black instead of 
the Tigers' traditional orange and 

Members of the organization are 
planning to arrange a system in which 
graduating 1 sophomores may trade the 
large Tiger head for a smaller emblem.

While junior college students ai" 1 
anxiously awaiting the first stona of 
the junior college building, the juco 
building committee is meeting and 
laying the cornerstone plans. They ar 
making preliminary arrangements fer- 
tile building for which the local citi 
zens voted almost a year ago. 

Plans are progressing and a ver- 
efficient means for suggestions i 
I eing used. Former junior college stu- 
dents in all walks of life are answer- 
ing questionnaires concerning then- 
needs for other courses and the aid 
junior college subjects gave them. In 
addition, an industrial survey has been 
made to determine the need for var- 
ious vocations for the industries of 
this area. 

Althugh nothing definite has yet 
been determined by these surveys, 
the committee is not. at a standstill.

Students Hear Recordings 
Of Shakespeare's Writings 

Recordings of William Shake- 
speare's "Twelfth Night" or "What 
You Please" were presented last week 
for the English literature class in- 
structed by Pauline B. Sleeth. 

The students followed the records 
while silently reading with them from 
books The "Mercury Shakespeare" 
was edited for reading and arranged 
for staging by Orson Wells and Roger 

Mr. Welles and Mr. Hill believed 
that although few students have the 
opportunity of seeing Shakespearean 
plays on the stage, they should all 
have the chance to hear the plays 
through records. These recordings are 
one of the methods being used in the 
schools of today to give students a 
better knowledge of Shakespeare's 

The records give the history of 
the way the play was written. 

The cast of characters included the 
Narrator, Orson Welles; Feste, LcPoi 
Poerti; Orsino, George Coulouris; Cu- 
rio, William Alland; Viola, Jane Gor- 
don; and the Sea Captain, John A. 
Villard. Eustace Wyatt presented the 
part of Toby; Elizabeth Farrar played 
Maria; Will Greer gave the part of 
Sir Andrew Aquecheek; and Orso^ 
Welles protrayed Malval'o Other char- 
acters included Oliva, Phyllis Joyce; 
Antonio, Erskfne Sanford; the officer. 
Richard Wilson; and the Priest, Ed- 
gerton Paul. The music was arranged 
and presented by Marc Blitzstein.

Paper Returns # 
To School Shop 
For Printing 

The Tiger Tales have come home! 
With the addition of Kenneth Rhodes, 
Paul Meyer, and Bud Chaplin to the 
staff, the printing of the juco paper 
is now under way in the school print 
shop instead of hiring the work done 
by the Traveler Publishing Company, 
as was dony last semester. 

With ink on their fingers and doubts 
in their minds, the b^ys labor away in 
the shop to get the juco paper out on 
time. When they run out of copy, one 
of them dashes to the journalism 
office, grabs any story in sight, and 
shoots it to Kenny, the linotype 

From here the copy goes back to 
the staff "upstairs" for proof reading. 
After a few subtractions, additions, 
and insertions, it goes back to Bud 
and Paul for make-up and — at last, 
the printed paper.

Small Pox Shots 
Are "New Look" 

"OUCH!! That's my sore arm!" 

More than a few long faces and 
pained expressions resulted from .the 
announcement last week that all stu- 
dents in junior high school, senior high 
school and junior college who hadn't 
been vaccinated in the last three years 
for smallpox must "get the works". 

The students who had never been 
or could not remember of being vac- 
cinated for the disease suffered many 
horrible visions of what it might be 
like. Huge needles and grimacing doc- 
tors were visioned as the students 
stood in line awaiting the inevitable. 

After the nearly painless ordeal 
was over relieved students could be 
heard saying "Oh, I wasn't even 
scared". Now a week later many of the 
students are more than a little care- 
ful about bumping their arms or get- 
ting them bumped. 

Of course teachers as well as those 
people who are taking special college 
course are among those with sore arms 
and many grade school students will 
be since the vaccination was to have 
been offered to them this week.

Mid-year Grad 
Writes from K U 

Gerald Fetteroff, mid-year grad- 
uate, who is now attending the Uni- 
versity of Kansas has written a letter 
jisking that his name be placed on 
the Tiger Tales' mailing list. 

Fetterolf is enroled for 20 hours

hours of Spanish, and western civili-

What are you getting out of col- 
lege? Are you getting your (or your 
dad's) money's worth? 

If the answer is no, that is no one's 
fault but yours! The opportunities 
are placed here before you and if you 
do not have the energy, the desire, and 
finally attain these higher goals, you 
have no one but yourself to blame. 

There are the few ( ? ) who believe 
that college is only for popularity, 
fun, and loafing on someone else's 
time. But where are these students 
going to find themselves a few years 
from now ? 

College can give you greater know- 
ledge, greater opportunities, and a 
greater life-if you let it. Don't lay 
books aside for every little thing that 
happens to come along. Many times 
more beautiful things can be found in 
books than in a short, snappy drive 
around the block with a carload of 

Studying and learning is not some- 
thing that can always be put off un- 
til tomorrow. That tomorrow may 
never come. 

Think it over. Are you getting 
everything you should from college? 
If not, why ?

Juco Guys Make Furniture 
With Eye to Future 

Every morning a class of juco boys 
can be found in the shops with ham- 
mers, saws and paint making furni- 
ture with an eye on the future. These 
boys are enrolled in woodwork and are 
instructed by Forrest Haines. 

The average student probably 
doesn't realize that right here in 
ACJC home furnishings are being 
planned, assembled, and finished for 
use in present or future homes as the 
case may be. 

To give examples of what is being 
done by this class Warren and Ervin 
Work are making a breakfast set of 
table and chairs. Warren is making 
the chairs and Ervin made the table. 

A walnut chest of drawers with 
birds-eye maple inlay made by Max 
Abramms is now in the last stages of 
completion while Avery Johnson is 
finishing an oak book case. Also in the 
finishing process in a round coffee 
table made by Bill Swain which is to 
have a glass top. 

Others larger projects are a modem 
kneehole desk which is being: made by 
Merton Darnell and a ceder chest 
being made by Phil Baruch. Jess 
Wentworth is one of the students 
working on a project for his present 
home. Jess is making a play pen for 
his young son, "but his youngster will 
be old enough to help him when he 
finishes it," added Mr. Haines. 

Other projects well on their way 
are a walnut vanity chair being made 
by Max Burks, a walnut magazine 
table being made by Harold Bradford 
and a table lamp now being finished 
by Bob Parker. 

All this activity is centered around 
the shops, which are located in the 
junior high school basement, amid the 
the screech of saws, the rasp of sand- 
paper, and he clatter of hammers. 

Down there they make their 
drawers and build their chests. This 
bunch of boys even shape their legs. 

Juco Group to 
Forensic Tilt 
At St. John's 

Eight local juco students will re- 
present Arkansas City at the St. 
John's forensic tournament which will 
be held Friday, March 12 and the de- 
bate tournament there to be held 
Saturday, March 13. 

Those entering will be Ann Roehl, 
dramatic reading; Janell Estep, poetry 
reading and Bible reading; Lyndon 
Howard, original oratory; Jim Austin, 
standard oratory; Cora Mae Harris, 
standard oratory; and Robert Adams, 
book review. The debate team will be 
Ronald Holredge and Norman Byers. 

The group will be accompanied by 
A. E. Maag, forensics instructor.

German Club Plans 
For Future Meetings 

A list of hosts and hostesses for 
future meetings was formed at the 
meeting of the German club Tuesday 
evening, February 24th. 

Plans were made for future pro- 
grams and a contribution was made 
toward the postage on overseas pack- 

German songs were sung as well 
as some amusing translations of pop- 
ular songs into German. Preparations 
were made for a quiz program and for 
the production of a play. 


French Club Holds 

Entertainment Meeting 

An entertainment meeting of the 
French Club was held March 3rd in 
the junior high music room and the 
junior college clubrooms. 

The group sang French songs and 
played a French musical game. Other 
French games were played. 

Miss Anre Hawley, sponsor, read 
a letter from a French boy to whom 
the group has been sending packages. 

Spanish Club Meets 
At Flannery Home 

The regular meeting of the Spanish 
Club was he'd February 23 at the home 
of the president, Jean Flannery. 

Plans for the future meetings were 

An interesting report on Spanish 
literature was given by Bill Ramsey. 
Patsy Sheldon, Jean Flannery and 
Miss Anne Hawley read several Span- 
ish poems. Mrs. Esther Truax played 
some Spanish records. 

Speak In Juco 

Dr. Christopher Norburg of Norway 
wil speak to the junior college on 
March 18th. His speech will probably 
deal with either the European or in- 
ternational situation. 

Dr. Norburg is a graduate of the 
University of Oslo in Norway and 
recently wrote the book, "Operations 
Mr scow". 

He is now on leave of absence from 
the University of Minnisota where 
he is a professor. 

Anna Bird Stewart, poet, author, 
and teller of tales for children was 
scheduled to appear in Arkansas City 
March 9th and 10th. She spoke to the 
junior college students at their regular 
assembly time, Wednesday morning. 

Miss Stewart, who writes for news- 
papers and magazines, has traveled 
all over the United States, parts of 
England, Scotland, France, Canada, 
Ireland, Holland, Germany, Italy, and 

Meet Mr. Ed 

An Arkansas City "native son" is 
this week's Mr. Ed — Ted Templar. 
Born here September 27, 1929, this 
six foot one inch freshman has lived 
in A. C. all those 18 years. 

With brown hair, and eyes and long 
eyelashes (he adds), Ted's favorite 
color is "anything soft." He likes "any- 
thing but a redhead." 

A perfect evening according to Ted 
is to take his date, a girl with under- 
standing and not set in her ways, go 
with a crowd, enjoy a good show, Bar- 
B-Q's, and be home early so he can 
go to work at the Kanotex the next 
day. His hobby, incidentally, is throw- 
ing parties. 

Other favorites include food, any- 
thing sweet; pastime, sleeping; song, 
"If I'm Lucky;" and movie star, Rita 
Hayworth, "his six feet of TNT." 

Enrolled in "the easiest," a liberal 
arts course, when he graduates, Ted 
wants "to be a man" and go "anyplace 
that will hive me" for his last two 
years of college. He proclaims that 
his easiest subject is history. 

Ted would like to go into the insur- 
ance business but we noted a bit of the 
family's politics in his voice as he left 
us saying, "Tell all the vets to vote 
for my dad!"

27 to 25. Jim Turner paced the Arks 
with seven points to take scoring 
honors for the evening.

Tonight the Arkansas City Junior 
College is host to the seniors from 
various towns and the local high school 
at the traditional Tigerama, the an- 
nual reception for seniors. 

The Tigerama was first instituted 
in April, 1930, when entertainment 
took the form of a musical revue 
held in the junior high auditorium. 
Guests of the college for the first year 
were the local senior class. Chilocco, 
Wellington, Geuda Springs, Oxford, 
and Newkirk. 

Through the years the classes have 
presented themes like 'On Deck," 
"Tennis Meet," "Stardust," and "Can- 
dyland." Each year the guest list has 
enlarged a bit and every party has 
been a little better than the previous. 

This evening as the guests enter 
the main floor they board the "S. S. 
Tigerama" for an evening of dancing 
and entertainment. The ship's dancing 
music is furnished by Tom Ward and 
his Tomcats. 

Arrangements for the trip were 
made by the student council and the 
social committee with Mike Justice 
chairman. The purpose of the Tiger- 
ama is to introduce high school sen- 
iors of Arkansas City and neighbor-

€?33:c 'iit th, C* 

By Tom Copeland 

Within the rast two vears the -pro- 
gress of the Arkansas City Junior,'; Col- 
lege has been increasingly rapid. 

: The end of the war brought the vet- 
erans back home, ready to begin or 
continue their ccjllege education.; With 
the influx of so many new students 
the enrollment has increased tremen- 
dously, requiring class ■ re-arrange- 
ments, and in some cases, causing the 
over-crowding of classrooms. 

ACJC was growing by such leaps 
and bounds that school officials began 
casting about anxious looks for more 
snace. The possibility of a new trade 
school and junior college building was 
realized when, on April 8, 1947, a bond 
issue was voted on. The citizens of 
/rl-ansas City, aware of the impor- 
tance of a bigeer and better junior 
college, voted "Yes". It was necessary 
that there be a .delay in construction 
to await a decrease in building-ma- 
terial prices, but the site is being 
cleared and prepared. 

The board of education is hopeful 
that the new building will be suf- 
ficient to accomodate the present stu- 
dent body pnd those forthcoming in 
the future. With a newly-constructed 
junior college, however, and an ex- 
panded trade school, it is to be expec- 
ted that there be a still ereater in- 
crease in the • student body which is 
present today. 

The greater choice of courses and 
subjects has 'brought a livelier degree 
of interest from local and out-of-town 
aspirants. The courses offered are: 
Pre-Business. Pre-Business Adminis- 
tration, Pre-Dental, Pre-Engineering, 
Pre-Home Economics, Pre-Law, Pre- 
Medic, and Liberal Arts. The pre-en- 
gineering course claimed the largest 
enrollment in 1946-47, and an addition 
of a course in "flying," available also 
for veterens under, the G. I. Bill -of 
Rights, brought forth many appli-

Time for Relaxation 

The scene above is a typical shot of 
the junior college clubroom. Located 
in the college basement, this room 
doubles as a game room, study hall, or 
as a place to relax. All through the day 
there echos from this room the sounds 

of a ping pong game in progress, or 
students dancing to the platters on 
the phonograph. 

The clubroom is one of the most 
popular spots in the Arkansas City 
Junior College 


Spring Fever' 

Spring fevr has hit Arkansas City i"s much of their time as possible out- 
End the majority of students spend jside as is the group of above. 

Twety-four Receive 
Football Letters 

Coach "Bunt" Speer presented foot- 
ball letter awards in a special assembly 
March 11. Twenty four nominees earn- 
ed letters for the 1947 season. 

Lettermen receiving awards for the 
second year were Bud Chaplin, Roy 

rladley, Kenny Quimby, George Ward, 
3ob Brady, Keith Hearne, Joh l Wimer,

Home Economies 
Reviewed for 
Prospective Pupils 

By Iris Rahn, j.c. '47 

"Mmnimm — what is that wonderful 
.rnell?" That, dear people is coming 
crom the college foods class. See that 
iretty dress down the hall ? That also 
is a product of the juco home eco- 
lomics classes. 

Ah yes, the junior college offers 
seven different courses of home eco- 
lomies. They are foods, clothing, ele- 
nentavy design, costume design, in- 
ferior d^cor^tion, child care and home 
ind family living. 

The instructor f«r all these inter- 
esting courses is Miss Olive Moore. 

Most of these courses are considered 
"essential" to the modern home-maker 
:o-be. Home and family living- for 
nstance is described as, " a prepara- 
ion for marriage and parenthood and 
eccessary adjustments involved in the 
uilding of a home". Now doesn't that 
Dund interesting? 

A prospective j.c. student may ask, 
What do you do in the clothing class 
■esicies sew" ? As the little book de- 
cribes it, "this course is a study of 
he factors which influence the in- 
ividual in the selection and purchase 
f clothing, textile fabrics, the testing 
if sewing ability, learning 1 how to 
»uy, and planning the clothing bud- 
;et." Satisfied? 

The quickest way to a man's heart 

s through his s+omach this state- 

nent is thoroughly believed by the 
uco foods students. From the way 
hey hang around the door waiting 
'or a hand-out when the class is cook- 
ng, this statement has been proven 
nany times. 

As for the other home economics 
'.ubjtcfs in B.U. , all I can say is that 
hey speak for themselves. 

The local horre economics depart- 
ment could be and will be expanded 
vhen we get the new junior college 
nade. In this new building, many mod- 
rn conveniences are to be installed, 
ind therefore there will probably be 
nore subjects offered along this line 
;han there is now. 

In this building, as the late Dorothy 
Nichols planned, there will be a big 
:omfortable room in whic'i the girls 
nay hold style reviews a"d exhibits 
of the> products. Miss Nichols was 
the former teacher of home economics 
in both junior college and hi^h school. 

The facilities of the junior college 
and high school home economics de- 
partment are now combined and are 
badly cramped. When the new junior 
College is finished, they will have a 
chance to expand and improve. 

The debate team made a trip to 
Tonkawa, March 5 where they entered 
two debates. The team was accom- 
panied by A. E. Maag, debate coach.

English Courses 
Are Valuable 
To All Students 

No one can learn the English lan- 
guage too well and English courses 
are always an asset in any occupation. 

Miss Pauline B. Sleeth and Miss 
Virginia Weisgerber instruct all the 
English courses in the junior college, 
courses which include Rhetoric and 
composition, English literature, and 
public speaking. 

Rhetoric and composition, a re- 
quired subject, is a three hour course 
in which students study the writings 
of other people and learn to write 
compositions and term papers. Each 
year two books are studied and "Lord 
Jim" was one of the books presented 
to the classes this year. 

The annual junior college play is a 
project of the speech classes. This 
year's play was "Lilies of the Field," 
a three act comedy highly acclaimed 
by many. The speech students have 
a club, the Dinner Club, which meet- 
in the evenings and gives the students 
a chance to present their work out- 
side of class. All principles of publi • 
speaking are learned and practiced 
in this class. 

English Literature is a two houi 
course in which the works of many 
English authors are studied, giving 
the students a better understanding 
of the English style of writing. This 
year's classes studied such works as 
"Canterbury Tales," "Twelfth Night," 
and "Macbeth," also essays by Emer- 
son, Lamb, Galsworthy, Santayana, 
and many others. 

English courses are important to 
every student and should be included 
in any type of course. 


Collectors Galle, 

Curry Seek Coins 

"Any old coins to sell? Any old 
coins to sell?" 

At the mere mention of a "rare coin" 
or an "old piece" the ears of Amos 
Curry, Athletic Director, and K. R. 
Galle, Dean of the College, perk up and 
burn with interest. 

These two men, both collectors of old 
and rare coins, have long had a mania 
for this type of money. They buy, 
order, and trade coins which are 
promptly added to their already large 

Collectors Curry and Galle really 
work for their money. For instance, 
they can always be found at the foot- 
ball and basketball games checking all 
the coins turned in, occasionally find- 
ing a "relic." They carry specially 
equipped magnifying glasses to ex- 
amine the money and although they 
go home empty handed sometimes,

JUCO Hour Features 
All Phases of School Life 

The Junior College Hour is on the 
rir! The group above is broadcasting 
<~ne of the weekly Juco Hour program. 
They are, left to right, Bob Larson, 

n'iiiard r^ai'lowe, Roy Hadley, and 
Phyllis Gossard. The radio class is 

I under the supervision of Mr. A.E. 


"This is your JUCO Hour!" 

Such is the announcement over 
station KSOK each Tuesday daring 
the school year, for that's the time 
set aside for the junior college's own 
urogram of news and views from the 
basement campus. 

Every week brings something new 
and different as planned by the radio 
class under the direction of A. E. 
Maag. During the year, all depart- 
ments of the school are represented 
on the program. 

The college chorus apnears with a 
musical program soon, while the Eng- 
lish classes, athletic department and 
speech derirtment have shared in the 
radio spotlight. 

The program planners attempt to 
cover every phase of school activi- 
ties. Classroom seens have been de- 
picted, one program was devoted to 
poetry, the Christian Association 
officals have appeared- _all on the 
JUCO Hour. 

At the beginning of the year, mem- 
bers of the administration were intro- 
duced and interviewed. 

At a regular, assembly program, a 
pre-broadcast of the school program 
was presented and the students got a 
"behind the mike" view of the broad- 

During classtime, the students re- 
view and investigate the influence of 
radio on the lives of t s e listeners. 

Science Offer 

To Rise Via 1 

Do you desire to rise to great 
heights on a test tube? Have .you 
ever wanted to know the inner work- 
ings of those plants in your gardens? 
To be able to use a compound micro- 
scope correctly? If so, science is the 
field, and this knowledge and much 
more is offered in the Junior college 

When you go to enroll next fall 
there is the choice of two-five hour 
lab courses, General Biology and Zoo- 
logy. Two three hour classes, Psycho- 
logy and Health Hygiene, although 
Psychology is offered only to sopho- 
mores students. 

st Tubes 

The spring term includes Botony 
and General Physiology which are five 
hour courses and a three hour sub- 
ject, General Geography. Chemistry, 
a five hour lab course is offered for 
both semesters. 

The original purpose of this art- 
icle was propaganda for next years 
enrollment but after reviewing the 
classes and talking to Mr. J. Kelsey 
Day of the science classes who stated 
that his classrooms wei - e overcrowded 
the way it is, it seems that the issue 
needs no further backing, so iust keep 
the lines orderly when enrollment 
comes around again.

Chorus Members 
Appear Often 

It's more than "do-mi-sol-do" for 
the members of the junior college 
chorus class, under the direction of 
Charles L. Hinchee. 

Programs for assembly and various 
other public appearances are con- 
stantly in demand. This year, members

Future Artists Learn Basics 
In Art and Pottery Classes 

Tuture architects, landscape art- 
ist?, commercial artists, cartoonists, 
fashion designers or what have you 
are now receiving the basic training 
which will be required in such fields. 

Beginning art students learn the 
basic fundamentals of freehand pencil 
drawing and rendering (sometimes 
called shading) during the first nine 
weeks of the course but are allowed 
to progress as rapidly as they are 
capable to more advanced work. 

After the art of pencil drawing has 
been satisfactorily accomplished by 
the artists to be (we hope), the study 
of charcoal drawings begins. Char- 
coal work is undoubtedly one of the 
messiest things the young artist could 
happen into. It usually smears your 
hands and sleeves with one of the 
blackest blacks. When the aspiring 
artist thinks he is almost finished with 
the picture something will happen, 
causing it to smear, without fail. 

When the student has managed to 
truggle through the charcoal training 
le is permitted to take up work in 
vatercolors. This is the point to which 
he present beginning class has pro- 
gressed. This study will continue 
;hrough the remaining weeks of school. 
The advanced art students are al- 
'owed to concentrate their efforts on 
'particular fields of art such as water- 
color, landscape, or figure drawing. 

Another field of art which a few 
uco stud°nts are studying is the mak- 
ing of pottery. In this class the student 
?arns the correct methods of working 
lay to the proper consistency for 
milding pieces, and the methods of 
uildiner. The term "building" used 
in connection with pottery means as- 
sembling or making a piece of pot- 

Both art courses are under the in- 
trusion of Miss Vera Koontz.

Your Leap Year Opportunity 

With all the gals eyeing the calen- 
dar with that big "1948" certifying 
leap year, the perplexed boys are won 
dering just how this all started: 

To answer them Once upon a 

time that's the way all stories 

start once upon a time, St. Bridget 

threw her arms around St. Patrick and 
made a deal for all the girls who had 
to wait patiently for a man to propose. 

But, unfortunately, like todays, it 
wasn't that simple. So let's start the 
story all over again. 

According to the old Irish story, St. 
Bridget was a great sympathizer with 
the many poor girls who were forced 
to wait for a man to pursue and pro- 
pose. One day, St. Bridget, after worry- 
ing over the husband-getting matter 
determined to do something 1 about it. 
So she did. She talked to the good 
Irish St. Patrick about it. 

"The girls will be rising in mutiny," 
she told him. "They thirk they should 
be permitted once in awhile to pop the 
question themselves". 

St. Patrick, who by this time had 
freed Ireland of the snakes and toads 
had gained great power throughout 
the land, weighed the matter seriously, 
to finally consent that girls might have 
the right to every seventh year, pursue 
and propose to their desired husbands. 

St. Bridget threw her arms around 
St. Patrick's neck delighted at thus far 
gainng her point but, with her: Irish. 
blarney, convinced the Erin patron to 
make it one year in four. 
jy: Seems St. Patrick hnd^never been 
hugged before and he liked the sen- 
sation so much that he cried, "I'll give 
you Leap Year, the longest of the 

At his point, the story becomes quite 
vague, with everything suggested, in- 
cluding the marriage of St. Pat and 

St. Bridget (following her proposal, 
of course), some say she hugged him 
again and gave him a kiss. Be that as 
it may, tradition has it that it was St. 
Bridget and St. Patrick who started 
the custom of girls doing the proposing 
during Leap Year. In Ireland to this 
day, if a man refuses a lady during 
Leap Year, he must buy her a fine silk 
dress, so the girl can't lose, either way! 

But tradition is not all that is behind 
the custom. Scotland bassed a law in 
1288 declaring Leap Year as the year 
when the "mayden ladye" might choose 
her husband and the only way he can 
avoid it is to prove that he was be- 
trothed to another woman at the time 
the girl made her proposal. 

France soon followed suit and passed 
the law legalizing Leap Year. In the 
fifteenth century Genoa and Florence 
each provided in the same manner for 
their "unfortunate maidens". 

It has not b'en determined whether 
any of the United States ever actually 
passed the lav/, but the custom is re- 
cognized fully enough to enable the ad- 
vertiser to c.pitrtize on it throughout 
the Leap Years. In all cases it is com- 
mon enough to hear the men say, "Oh. 

I didn't propose _• my wife did 

that! It was- Leap Yeax, you -know". 

And so, girl's are grateful "to St: 
Bridget and" St. Patrick. 

The pro vi ion of St. Bridget', per- 
mitting marriageable girls to do their 
own proposing of marriage leaves 
little for the girls of 1948 to'"" worry 
about. Each may propose to the man of 
her choice. If she f;ils, another Leap 
Year rolls around again in four years! 

But pity the girl of '2096! If she 
should fail, there' would be no hope 
for eight yo^rs, for according to the 
calendar, 2^00 is not a Leap Year! 
Cafch'em row g^rls, while you can! 

A large crowd welcomed the pre- 
sentation of the annual junior college 
speech play, "Lilies of the Field", in 
the Junior high auditorium Friday, 
March 19, under the direction of Miss 
Pauline B. Sleeth, speech instructor. 
,The first ?ct of the comedy took 
place in the Vicarage, the home of the 
Head family, at 'Videleete, Gloucester- 
shire. Francie Heinz and Rosemary 
Warren portrayed the Head twins, 
daughter of Reverend and Mrs. Head, 
•Jack Ronsick and Peggy Sullivan. 
' Upon her arrival from London, Mrs. 
Rooke-Walter, mother of Mrs. Head, 
presented her granddaughters with 
birthday gifts, a month in London for 
one and for the other — ten yards of 
erepe de chene. 

The plot of the play revolved around 
the girls attempt to receive the better 
of the two presents from "Mum's 
Mum" and their difficulties after 
Elizabeth earned the prized gift. 

In .London, the girls fell in love 
vith Barnaby 'Hadclen, Edward Galle, 
md Byron Ropes, Jerry Williams. 
3ecause he was an antiquarian, Eliza- 
beth chose mid-Vitorian c'othes and 
habits to , win the heart of Barnaby. 
Bryon changed hi-- old views to see the 
way Catherine did, thus winning her 

•Monica Flame and lady Susan Rock- 
er, two London society women, were 
oortrayed by Catherine Stoker and 
Toyce CHMs." The twins finallv play 
havoc- with their idea that "the old 
things are best." 

The role' of Violet, a maid at th° 
Vicara"ge, was played by Ann Roehl 
md Robert Adams portrayed the part 
if Withers, a rron-servant to Mrs. 
Walter. .Taek Bookter. who originally 
played the part of Withers, was ill 
and unable to continue the part. 

Stage managers wer James Mc- 
Cormick, Sam Crane, and r -len Burns. 
Property managers were Na'Hne John- 
son, Ethel Harvey, Mrs. Pauline 
Haines, and Mrs. Potty Burns. Hair 
styles were arranged by Opal Bird. 

Others assisting were John Thomas, 
Bill Ramsev, Mark p orch, Kenneth 
Falls, and 'Fred Wollard. The high 
school orchestra, under the direction 
of August S. Trollmon, presented num- 
bers. before 'the play and between acts. 
' The! student council acted as business 
•^a^ager urder the direction of Roy 
liadley, chairman. 

The three act comedy was written 

by John Hastings Turner and con 

sisted -of a plot entirely different than 

ever before presented by the local 

'junior college.'

With the final issue of the Tiger Ta-

the realization that this college term 
i= nearly over. Students will soon hi 
pouring' from the doors of ACJC to- 
find their place in lif d or to find work 
for the summer months., vith plans 
to return to class :s in the fall. 

' This term has seen advancements i l 
the junior college new courses, enlarg- 
ed enrollment, a big Christmas Dane ■, 
and now plans for t e new iuco build- 
ing.' The term has also fiven the stu- 
dents many memories — basketball 
games football games, the Tigerama, 
socials, plays and clubs. 

Yes, the college has mfde advance- 
ment and left us memories but 5 what 
about us as individuals? Have we bet- 
tered ourselves? Have we done the 
best we co'ild? Have we left pLasint 
memories for others ? 

If we have broadened our kn wkdge. 
improved our characters, and /aided 
in making life pi: asant for some ; other 
student, then our time has been well 
spent, and we have achieved our college 

It has been an eventful and joyous 

year those who plan to return 

next year have something: to look 
foward to and those who have com- 
pleted their work have something to 
remember, — the good old days in AC.rC.

rather badly (never thought she would

be back, Edna. 

Only two more weeks to go! Th ; s 
term will scon- be gone and over 75 
sophomores will join the ranks of 
alumni of ACJC. In case anyone is 
particularly broken up because sum- 
n?r vacation is coming, remember 
you can always sign up for the sum- 
mer term.

Rosalee Jones Is 
New Secretary 

Miss Rosalee Jones, juco graduate 
with the class of '47, assumed the dut- 
ies of juco secretary Wednesday, May 
5, when she replaced Doris Deets. 

Doris turned in her resignation be- 
cause she is going to say "I do" to 
Francis 1 H-. Taylor this spring. Mr. 
Taylor will graduate with the class 
from Emporia State College this May 
and has been teaching at Saffordville, 
Kansas. He plans to begin his Master's

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


Some nice sunburns around lately 
what rooms have the southern ex- 
posure, boys?

sation about the people at the dance? 
(B) learn the identity of her favorite 
actor, singer, etc., so that you might 
?et a pair of tickets to see one of 
them in operation? (C) decide to call 
on an old girl who lives in the same 
sorority house, and ask her to put a 
plug in for you ? 

5— If you forget to ask for another 
date, did you (A) decide to meet her 
after classes "by accident," and ask? 
'B) To send a record or book to her, 
mentioning that it would be fun to go 
out again? (C) Call her on the phone 
and book her for the month ? .- 

Now — the man with three or more 
A's is a nice guy — but he'll go un- 
memtioned-at sorority bull, sessions. 
Too run-of-the-mill. 

The lad with the C's works too 
hard — seems a bit unsure. 

But " the boy with the B average 
does best: will be guessed about, talked 
about, pointed out. He's the thoughtful 
fellow who makes a girl feel like a

I ast fall one of Arkansas City's 
uain centers of interest was the San 
Romani Memorial Fountain in front 
of the Auditorium. 

For years people had wondered what 

the incompleted objret was a lar?e 

ash tray or something to sit on. It 
was used, by many as a waste basket, 
catching gum wrappers, paper sacks, 
and cigarettes. 

But last fall, after much discussion 
and debate, the memorial was com- 
pleted and the fountain sported an 
array of colored lights, resulting in 
beautifully lighted sprays of water. 

The city rejoiced in the completion 
but the fountain was in use only one 

Why shouldn't the fountain be work- 
ing on spring nights so people riding 
through town could em'ov it. What 
"•o^H is t u o forntain if it is not going

'JUe. fyotuttain 

I ast fall one of Arkansas City's 
main centers of interest was the San 
Romani Memorial Fountain in front 
of the Auditorium. 

For years people had wondered what 

ithe incompleted object was a lar?e 

| ash tray or something to sit on. It 
was used, by many as a waste basket, 
catching gum wrappers, paper sacks, 
and cigarettes. 

But last fall, after much discussion 
and debate, the memorial was com- 
pleted and the fountain sported an 
array of colored lights, resulting in 
beautifully lighted sprays of water. 

The city rejoiced in the completion 
but the fountain was in use only one 

Why shouldn't the fountain be work- 
ing on spring nights so people riding 
through town could enioy it. What 
"•o^d is t^o fountain if it is not going 
to be used ?

fyan, a 'New Jlaah' 

That sun tan you acquired this 
summer is beginning to fade. The 
summer vacation- the girl you met 
on your trip up north, are now just 
pleasant memories. Now you have 
a thick new history text to master in 
the next few months. The thought of 
it makes you wish you had never heard 
of school. 

That's one way of looking at it. If 
you feel as if you're going to "have it 
ruff", you probably won't notice that 
"new girl" who sits next to you in 
history was prettier hair and bluer 
eyes than the lass you met on your 

Fun is where you find it. And you'!! 
find it in the club rooms, chem lab 
even in Mr. Day's zoology class, if 
you're looking for it. The world will 
have a "New Look" if you meet it 
with a "New Outlok". 

This may be the year you make the 
first string of the football squad or 
maybe you'll not be the star in the 
college play. Why not? ? ?

Feel tired and dejected? Feet hurt? 
Mind need relaxing ? Then the place 
for you is the clubrooms. Yes. it's the 
place for rest and relaxation, study, 
and a remedy for lonliness. 

This miracle room is located even 
further down than the junior college 
class rooms. Tucked neatly in the 
northwest corner of the basement is 
this large room known as the clubroom 
of ACJC. 

Equipment for several types of 
recreation is available to all students 
This room has been furnished for 
everyone's use and enjoyment. Attrac- 
tions include a ping-pong table, cards, 
sofas, tables, chairs, magazines, a 
phonographs, records, a coke machine 
and a candy machine. 

Accompanying the privilege of us- 
ing this room comes the responsibility 
of keeping it neat, which means no 
scrap papers or soft drink bottles 
on the floor, no carvings on the tables 
or chairs, no broken equipment. 

So. come on everyone, meet old 
friends and new students in the club 
room of ACJC. 

Welcome gals and guys! Here we 
are with the first edition of the 
Tiger Tales and the first installment 
of the local gossip. 

Well, have you heard that we now 
have a juco combo. There are five 
pieces. Janell Estep, the only girl in 
the group, will be at the piano, Phil 
Baker, drums; Larry Hay. clarinet; 
"Dutch" Fritchman. trumpet; and 
Jiggs Meyers, not a juco student, with 
the bass. Good Luck to this new or- 

Dot Haslett and Gerald Wilson have

Bill Patterson attended two days of 
the fair.

marked, "If you have ice cream you 
want more. If you have 'lasses you

Congratulations to the Bengal team 
for winning the game over Chanute. 
Good Luck in the lext game. 

Bob Majors, a promising Tiger grid 
fler. was lost from active service ear- 
ly in the season and is recuperating 
from a broken leg. Other injuries have 
healed quickly and were responsible for 
only limited vacations from practice

Does anyone remember Elmer? He 
was the cute little mouse :hat lived in 
the football field concession, stand three 
years ago. His great-great-grandson 

was seen Friday by Duana Boswell as 
she was helping clean up the stand. 

The poor thing (the mouse) was 
so frightened by her screams that it 
jumped into the canal. Wonder if 
Duana affects all mice and men that 
way ! ! !

And did you notice their bright new

Enrollment Shows 
High Man-power 
Ratio of 2 to 1 

Leap year is here and according 
to the vital statistics dear old juco 
is going to provide rich hunting 
grounds. Here are the figures that 
prove this Utopian condition. There 
are a total of 202 students enrolled 
with 101 freshmen. 83 upper classmen 
and 8 special students. These same 
figures show 62 girls and 130 boys 

And here is the dope! There are 
two fellows for every girl in iunior 
college, not excluding those already 
taken into wedlock, however. This 
exceeding amount of manpower is 
due to the fact that so nu.ny veterans 
are enrolled in the college. Well, girls, 
if you want a man you may have to 
fight for him so eat your Wheaties

Tigers Seek WHEA TSOWL, HUH? Tigers Victors 

Second Win 
Against Cards 

With one win under their belts, the 
Ark City juco Tigers are eyeing the 
powerful Parsons invaders, seeking 
to make it two in a row this Friday 
night at Curry Field. 

Last week. Parsons lost a hard 
fought battle to the powerful Hutch- 
inson gridders at Parsons 7-0. but t.iis 
should serve as warning on the juco 
teams that the cards are out for busi- 
ness and will be looking for their ini- 
tial win of the current season. 

Eleven returning lettermen provide 
Coach Swanson a nucleous of veterans 
while a host of freshmen stand by to 
carry on the red-and-white attack. 

Although this game is a non-con- 
ference tilt, the two teams will be 
battling to gain the prestige afforded 
the winner. 

The Coffeyville Red Ravens will en- 
tertain the Tigers on the first Bengal 
road trip of the season October 8. 
The Ravens have always proved a 
a worthy foe and the game should 
prove to be a tough battle. 

Eight lettermen were among the 
grid candidates reporting to Coach 
"Bunt" Speer on September 1. Return- 
ing veterans, as well as many promis- 
ing freshmen, are also on the roster 
as the season gets under way. Letter- 
men include Bill Daniels, Doyle Gil- 
strap, Joe Berry, Ronald McCuteheon. 
Dave Hearne. Jack Warren, and Ted 

Prospective heros in the first con- 
tingent were as folows: Ends-Bill 
Bartholomew. Bill Clay, Don Winslow. 
Wayne Hylton, Bob Goodrich, and Bill 
Hines; Tackles — Ted Temnlar. Jack 
Warren. Tom Gilmore. Ronald McCut- 
cheon. and Don Glasgow; Guards — 
John Schuchman. Dave Hearne. Jack 
Hollenbeak. Jack Henninerton, and 
Kenneth Keene; Centers — "Chic" Mar- 
tin, Bill Daniels, and Jim Smyer; 
Half-backs — Bill Gardner. Lyle Rutter, 
Norman Smyer. Don Lyle. Harry Kel- 
ler, and "Dutch" Fritchman; Full- 
backs — Joe Berry and Warren Isom; 
Quarter-backs — Doyle Gilstrap. Mu.- 
ry Boyles. and Paul Meyers. 

The Tiger forward wall seems to. 
be set, with such veterans as Jack 
Hollembeak. John Schuchman. Torn 
Gilmore and Chic Martin returning to 
bolster the Bengal line alon~ with the 
other new freshmen and returning 
lettermen of last fall. The line, the 
real strength of any football aggre- 
gation, will provide the holes for the 
Orange and Black running attack and 
also the coverage for Speer's passing 

The Bengals will miss their triple- 
threat star of last year. Earl Grinnell. 
and will also find such line stalwarts 
as Center Jim Coker and End Bob 
Brady hard to replace. ' 

For the first time in the history of 
the school, the Arkansas CLy Junior 
College football team will have an 
opportunity to compete in a post — 
season bowl game. Since the grand- 
pappy of all bowl classics, the Rose 
Bowl was inaugurated in the early 
1900's. the grid spectacles have grown 
in number untill today there are 
scores of bowl games. Jjust about 
every noun in the English languages 
was prefixed to the word "Bowl" and 
another game was in the offing. 

The Tigers this year can get into 
Kansas' new bowl game, the Wheat 
Bowl, by winning the western juco 
grid title. This season the confer- 
ence is split into two divisions, with 
Ark City. El Dorado, Pratt Hutchin- 
son. Dodge City, and Garden City 
comprising the western circuit and 
Coffeyville, Parsons, Independence. 
Chanute, Fort Scott, Iola making up 
the other six — team division in the 
eastern sector. 

The champions of the western divi- 
sion will meet the eastern division 
winner in the Wheat Bowl at Wichita 
in November, with victor begin crown- 
ed Kansas juco football champs of 

The path into the Wheat Bowl will 
be a rough one in both divisions. 
Coffeyville. Fort Scott, and Independ- 
ence loom as the best eastern elevens, 
although Parsons may prove to be a 
darkhorse. The Arks must bowl over 
some stiff opposition if they are to 
make their Bowl dreams come true. 
Huchinson will again be hard to beat, 
as willl Coach "Red" Wade's rejuve- 
nated Pratt crew. All in all, it looks 
like a thrilling football season, wit i 
the dividing of the teams into two 
leagues and the instigation of the 
Bowl game just what junior college 
football needed to add color and lire 
to the schedule. 

Girls Gym Class 
Takes Up Tennis 

"Watch ont for that ball!" 

"Look at that swing!" 

"What's the score?" 

These are but a few of the remarks 
to be herd when the girls' physical 
education class meets. 

Twice a week the girls meet in the 
gym under the direction of Miss Editli 
Davis to participate in various activi- 

Tennis is the main attraction now 
because of the nice weather. At the 
present time, the girls are learning 
the fundamentals of tennis, while 
practicing at the Wilson Park tennis 

When asked how she liked tennis, 
one girl replied. "It's sure hot, but 
lots of fun!" So even after playing 
tennis an hour in the sun, the girls 
still have lots of pep. 

Over Chanute 

In Opener 

The junior college Tigers' passing 
and running attack proved sufficient 
in downing the hapless Chanute Pan- 
ther eleven, 12 to 0, Friday night at 
Curry Field, in the season's opener 
for boths schools. Both teams found 
the opener a little trying, as was ap- 
parent by 13 fumbles and 21 penalties. 
The Bengals' touchdowns were spark- 
ed by freshman Murray Boyles, as 
the spirited half-back scampered 15- 
yards in the second period, and mid- 
way in the final period connected with 
tall Don Winslow, who snagged the 
pigskin and completed a 58-yard 
touchdown play. 

The local back-field looked prom- 
ising, with the backs showing power 
as Berry. Boyles, and Gardner drove 
for impressive gains. Defensive work 
was very good as the linesmen held 
the slashing Panther attack. 

After a threatening Chanute drive, 
sparked by a McNeil to Gardner to 
Neptune pass-lateral play, center 
"Chic" Martin intercepted a Chanute 
lateral and thundered 27 yards to the 
Panther 40, to set the stage for the 
initial counter. McCutcheon's try for 
point was wide. 

The luckless Chanute eleven fought 
desperately as the fourth quarter 
grew old and looked impressive until 
a penalty slowed their scoring drive. 
Boyles intercepted an aerial attempt, 
tucked the leather under his arm and 
wasn't nr.iled until he was well out of 
the danger zone. The next play found 
Winslow on the receiving end of a 
long Boyles pass, which was a thriller 
and good for a 58-yard counter. Again 
McCutcheon's conversion attempt was 

Local fans were pleased as they 
saw the home team out-gain the 
eastern opposition through ground 
rushing yardage. 128 to 82. 

Speermen starters included Bartho- 
lomew. Gilmore. Schuchman, Martin, 
Hearne, McCuteheon. Winslow, Gil- 
strap, Gardner. Boyles. and Berry.

Juco Song Adds 
To School Spirit 

Did you know we had a school song? 
Well, we do! Have you learned it? 
If not, let's all learn it so we'll have 
more school spirit. 

The juco song was written sometime 
during 1930. The words were written 
by Miss Lucille Plette. a science tea- 
cher here at the time. Jess Meeker, a 
student then, wrote the music, and 
A. E. San Romeni, band instructor at 
that time, arranged the music for the 

If all the students would learn "our" 
song, it would add lots to the school 
spirit, and would adl lots of pep to our 
assemblies and games. 

Let us sing of A.C. college days 
With joyous songs and rousing cheers 
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 strong 
We cheer for you i'i victory or defeat 
Our voices raise in happy song 
It is for loyalty and fellowship 
We love and praise and h^nor give. 
The spirit of our junior college 
Will ever more in mem'ry live. 

Howdy, all you guys and gals. Feel- 
in' good? Well, here we go again into 
all the latest gossip and gags of ACJC. 
Hope you're still feeling good after 
reading this! 

Ronnie Holdredge was iinxed last 
week. After four attempts, he 'inally 
finished a speech during a fire drill. 
Time was called on him in class. At 
the end of the class period, he was 
given the c nance to finish his story. 
He had just begun again when the fire 
bell sounded. That was the la^t straw' 
The class gathered 'round on the school 
lawn and Ronnie finished the interest- 
ing story. 

Boy: Do you know what's wrong 
with the alphabet? 

Girl: No. what? 

Boy: "U" and "I" aren't close e- 
nough together. 

Lots of luck to the TAC and the 
Christian Association in buildim; 1 their 
floats for the Arkalalah. 

You see a b?autiful girl walking 
down the street. She's singular, you're 
nominative. You walk across the street 
changing to the verbal and then if she 
doesn't object, you become plural. You 
talk of the future but she changes to 
the objective. You kiss her. Her father 
becomes present- things are ten^e and 
you become a past participle. 

Congrats to our swell football team. 
They're really fighting for that trip 
to the Wheatbowl. Let's give them lots 
of support, cheerers! 

Men are what women marry. They 
have two feet, two hands, and some- 
times two wives; but never more than 
one dollar or one idea at a time. 

If you flatter a man, it frightens 
him to death, if you don'tyou bore 
him to death. If you peimit him to 
make love to you. he gets tired of yon 
in the end, and if you don't, he gets 
tired of you in the beginning. 

Say. someone is sure wanting ti 
go to the Wheatbowl! They even turn- 
ed the football games into a math- 
matical formula: 

Ark City over Coffeyville plus Ar": 
City over Hutch equals Ark City ov e r 
the Wheatbowl. 

That's a good idea and increases 
school spirit. 
Keep up the good ideas! 

— that you shoot pool with a gun 
— that it requires a fisherman to scale 
a mountain ' 

— that a postage stamp is a new dance. 


Be seeing you all next issue! Don't

any gossip, just put a signed note in

Turner, Hadley 
Win Scholarships 

Scholarship awards of $100 each 
were announced for James Turner and 
Roy Hadley, 1948 graduates, at the 
spring awards assembly in May. The 
awards are annually presented by 
the Kiwanis and the Lions Club to 
out-standing junior college graduates. 
Hdley received the Lions scholarship 
and Turner that of the Kiwanis club. 

Eoth men are now contoinuing their 
studies, Hadley in business at Kansas 
University at Lawrence, and Turner 
ir chemicl engineering at Kansas 
State in Manhattan. Hadley was one 
of the regular backs on the 1946 and 
1947 football squads, while Turner 
was a consistent forward who lettered 
in basketball both seasons. Turner was 
the president of the student council 
during the 1947-48 academic year and 
Hadley had an active part in the coun- 
cil as arepresentative of his sopho- 
more class. 

Boosters Make 
Long - Awaited 
Trip To Game 

"Oh I'll just die if we don't get to 

"Phil, go try to call them again." 

"Is it 5:30 yet?" 

These are but a few of the impatient 
remarks heard around the school la^c 
Thursday evening as 33 jucos waited 
for their chartered bus to take them 
to the football game at Coffeyville. 

Phil Parker, president of the TAC 
made the arrangements for a cnartereJ 
bus which come from Winfield. The 
scheduled time for arrival of the bus 
was 4:30. So, 33 jucos decked in jeans, 
jackets, and wool coats, and equipped 
with plenty of food and blankets 
waited patiently (?) until 5:30. 

Just after Phil started refunding 
the money, someone yelled "Here it 
comes!", so, in a mad rush everyone 
was on the bus, and off for the game. 

Eating, talking, yelling through 
every town, and singing occupied tne 
minds of these boosters on the trip. 

The bus rolled into the Coffeyville 
stadium at 7:30, just in time for every- 
one to find their seat before the kick- 

After the game, the local rooters 
still had lots of pep, 'cause they knew 
our boys out-played Coffeyville in 
strategy, if not in score. The game 
was over about 9:45, and everyone 
went up town to eat. Everyone was 
back on the bus at the appointed time, 
11:00, andthe bus headed for home. 

After eating, yelling, singing, talk- 
ing, and "sleeping", all the way home, 
the tired juco's arrived in A. C. about 
1:15 a.m. 

Fads for Lads 
Are Popular with 
Juco Manpower 

Boys fashion are making headlines 
today. At least here at junior college. 
Bright plaid shirts and corduroy trou- 
sers are the thing that all well dressed 
boys wear to school. 

Colorful T-shirts are being replaced 
by ski sweaters of every design. A 
few mated sweaters are also seen. 
These are usually worn by steadies. 

Fads of pre-Arkalalah days are 
beards, side burns, and mustaches. 
The fellows wearing these may look 
a trifle shaggy but must save a lot 
of time in the morning. 

Jack Hennington states, "To be a 
well dressed boy you have to own a 
corduroy jacket, several pairs of ass- 
orted corduroy pants, a couple of 
flashy ski sweaters, a pair of loafers, 
a pair of dress shoes, and a lot of 
gay colored socks". 

Vernon Brewster adds. "Cowboy 
boots are also a must." 

Blue jeans, plaid shirts. T-shirts 
and flashy socks are Murry Boyles 

Don Lyle has a speciality of wear- 
ing bright corduroy shirts with socks 
to match. He also wears ski shoes. 
Jack Chambers and Bill Gardner also 
sport the same model of shoes. 

It has been said that boys wear the 
same old things but it seems they 
have a variety of choices. 

Concession Stand 
Is Money Maker 

"Hot dogs, candy, popcorn, hot cof- 
fee" are the familiar cries heard from 
the concession stand at the football 
games. Anything to get your money, 
or so the spectators think. 

The story behind the story is an 
afternoon of gathering su&plies, pop- 
ping corn, making hot dogs, and coffee 
by a few hard working individuals. 

The rescue crew arrives about 7 
p. m. to take for the evening. They 
come with the bright hopes of selling 
wares to all the enthusiastic customers. 
But after the half-time rush, their 
hopes are a little tarnished, the sup- 
plies are low, and the cold wind is 
blowing through. 

A tired but happy crew now closes 
the stand. The game has been won and 
the money counted. It was a big game 
and a big night for making money. 
The student council finance commit- 
tee has the management of the con- 
cession stand. The money made from 
the football and basketball games goes 
to the Tigerama, the big social event 
at the end of the year. 


Jack: I'm a psychiatrist in a pot- 
ter v factory. 
Phil: What is that? 
Jack: I repair cracked pots. 

Did you hear about the butcher 
that sold his meat grinder because 
he got a little behind in his work. 

Potential Football Star 
Make Debut on Gridiron 

An orange and black football helmet 
rolls jerkily across Curry Field's prac- 
tice gridiron. Finally, the helmet comes 
to a halt, so I stagger to my feet and 
pull it off my head. I look around and 
see six Coach Bunt Speers looking 
at me. 

"Did you get his number?", I asked. 
as the coach drags me back for more 
scrimmage against the "A" team. 

I line up opposite a Rock of Gib- 
raltar and the ball is snapped. So is ' 
my neck as the Rock steamrolls over 
me, leaving his brand on my posterior 
with his cleats. 

Finally, we get to take the offense 
and the quarterback calls for a play 
where I carry the ball. I take the pass 
frcm center and am promptly buried 
elive. After tunneling back to the 
surface encountering two moles en 
ro i-+p I go back into huddle. 

"Okay, you carry the pigskin." bark? 
the quarterback, leering menacingly 
at me. I reply. "Okay, but who'll carry 
the ball?" I find out soon after as the 
quarterback rams the ball into my 
stomack and ducks. Another visit with 
the moles. 

Next the quarterback called a mouse 
trap play with me the cheese. I blush 
and suggest a naked reverse but fail 
to d.'ssuade the "brains." The ball is 
snapped from center and I take out. 
I evade one tackier, dodge another, 
stiffarm a third. Racing, spinning, 
twisting, I cross the goal line. Proud- 
ly I run over to the coach for his 
praise. Beaming, I hear him say. 
"Nice run. Very nice. Only try to take 
the 1 all along next time." 

Brushing back the tears, I leave the 
clubhouse. Suddenly I feel a tap on my 
batt< red and bruised shoulders. It's 
the coach. He asks, "Did you take a 
shower?" I answer, "Why, is there 
one missing?" 

The coach sadly shakes his head. 
Then he suggests that maybe football 
isn't my game and that "maybe next 
year — ." 

I take the hint. I ran wild in the 
Tiny Tot Touch league with the 
Pershing Powderpuffs, but this junior 
ocllege game is a wee bit rough for

Ravens Grab 
Breaks to 
Beat Arks 14-8 

Coach Speer's Bengals went down 
in their first defeat in three successive 
non-conference grid starts. October7. 
at the hands of the Coffeyville Ravens 
on foreign grounds. The locals out- 
fought the eastern eleven throughout 
the first half and were far ahead on 
first downs from rushing, until the 
potent Ravens found themselves in 
the' second half and passed the weary 
Speermen in that department. 

The score: Coffeyville 14, Arkansas 
City 8. 

Coffeyville made a 50-yard sustained 
drive the first time they gained pos- 
session of the ball and turned it into 
a 7 point lead, as Bloomfield conv rted. 
The Speermen received the kickoff 
and returned the ball in 16 plays for a 
TD, as Gardner counted for the im- 
pressive Tigers. An official ruled the 
preceding pass play complete for Cof- 
feyville interference, which set the 
stage to complete the long drive. 
McCuteheon's attempted con v ersion 
was blocked, leaving a 1 point margin. 

A beautiful quick kick to the Raven 
five rilled out of bounds on the 2. and 
gave Tom Gilmore and Don Winslow 
the opportunity to snare Gustitus in 
the end zone and throw the Timers 
ahead 8 to 7. 

A pass interception proved fatal, 
as Boyles flipped and the wrong: Berry 
caught the ball. "Dub" Berry, Raven 
back, sped 70 yards through the entire 
Tiger team to score. Bloomfield's con- 
version was again successful and this 
completed the scoring for the evening.

Judd Wants Netmen 

The Juco tennis coach Ray Judd 
is in the market for more iuco tennis 
players to add to his present three 
returning lettermen. 

At least one additional net en- 
thusiast is required to enable the 
Tigers to compete in dual matches 
next spring, so several students are 
planning to dust off their raquets come

A permanent constitution and by-

clrb at their meeting held October 4. 

The articles were drawn up bv a 
constitution committee headed by J-an-

The hard-charging Tigers again 
crushed a worthy foe as che Parson 
Cardinal 1 ? went down in a 20-13 thril- 
ler, October 1- under the lights of 
Curry Field. The Tigers left little 
doubt in the minds of the large crowd, 
that they are a fighting eleven, full 
of aggressive spirit. 

Findiarr ground hard to gain, Par- 
sons opened with a barrage of aerial 
attempts which retted a T"*. as Phil- 
lips lumbered to pay territory with 
Carrier's 15 yard pass plfy. An at- 
tempted conversion by Mosier was 
no good. 

Tfto Timers failed to score in the 
initial quarter, but showed punching 
power in the second period, as they 
bulled their way to the lead. A Gil- 
strap to Berry lateral play to the 2- 
yard line set the stage ar d Gilstrap 
bucked over from the l-y£rd line on 
the 3rd down. Minutes later, the driv- 
ing Tiger backs slashed to another 
touchdown and were never headed, 
as Gardner garnered the 6 points. 
Ronny McCutcheon placed the ball 
squarely between the up-rigats on both 
attempts. A series of Card passes were 
halted at half-time and the Tigers 
lead 14-6. 

A third quarter pa"s pla r , executed 
by Parsons, netted 82 yards as they 
put themselves back in the ball game. 
Carrier flipped the pass to Phillips 
who crossed the goal-line standing up 
to bring the margin to a si ogle point. 
Ellis's conversion was successful. 

The home eleven weren't to be stop- 
ed. however and reeled off first downs 
rnd swept to a 21 to 13 victory, as 
Berry hit pay-dirt on an end run. 
McCutcheon again converted to score 
his third successive placement and 
the ball game was wrapped up in a 
neat package. 

Ark defensive play was magnificent 
as the charging linemen pulled the 
backs of the opposing team down time 
after time, without a gain in yardage. 
Schuchman's play in the third quart- 
er highlighted the aggressive guard's 
performances for the evening as he 
caught, a deflected Cardinal pass and 
line. Benp,',al pass-defense was ofte 1 " 1 
tore 24 yard'", to the Parsons 30-y^rd 
comnPtely lacking, however as the 
Parson's Carrier flipped again and 
again for nice g?irs.

Is Topic For 

"We are our brother's brothers, not 
just our brother's keeper." stated the 
Rev. K.C. Miller, a Presbyterian mini- 
ster from Wichita at the junior college 
assembly, October 18. 

The National Conference of Christ- 
ians and Jews presented a plea for 
brotherhood, and a plea to end dis- 
crimination of race and creed. Three 
different religions were represented 
by Mendel Silver, Jewish layman; 
the Rev. Joe Luther. Catholic priest, 
and the Rev. Miller. Protestant. 

Mr. Mendel Silvers' speech centered 
about cooperation between races anl 
creeds. He also suggested "Ten Com- 
mandments of Good Will." 

Father Luther brought out that 
"The Jewish faith is its grandmother, 
and Catholic mother of Protestanism. 
The three faiths should work together 
to form an interfaith brotherhood, each 
contributing its share to American

Club Room Heads 
Issue Help Call 

"How about a game of ping' pong?" 
"Is it time for the next hour yet?' 
These sounds and good times in the 
college club-rooms will continue only 
as Ions' as students accept the respon- 
sibility associated with the privilege of 
using the club-rooms, is the opinion of 
Kenneth "Whitey" Falls, a member of 
the club room committee appointed by 
the student council. 

Students who have thrown candy 
wrappers on the floor, put their feet 
on the chairs and divans, scattered tne 
cards all around the room, or who have 
failed to return pop bottles to the case 
are certainly eligible for a course in 
responsibility, "Whitey" says. 

Claus Thieson, a member of the 
same committee, says, "Accompanyi ig 
the privilege of using this room comes. 
the responsibility of keeping it neat. 
This means no candy wrappers or 
waste paper on the floor, no pop bottles 
lieirg around, and no dirty shoe marks 
onthe furniture." 

Bob Sneller. who is seen in the club- 
rooms frequently, says. "We are lucky 
to have a place such as the club-rooms 
for our leisure hours. Let's all see that 
this privilege is not removed by the 
thoughtlessness of a few students. 
Let's all work to keep our club-rooms

The Basement Buz; 

Luxury Liner 
Will Arrive Soon 

Around November 15. the students 
of the schools of Arkansas City will 
have for their use, a shiny new green 
and white bus. Due to labor trouble 
the bus company was unable to d 'liver 
the bus at the previously stated dates. 

This bus will be used by all the 
schools of Arkansas City, the junior 
college, senior high- junior high, and 
the grnd' schools. A new bus was badly 
needed as "Leaping Lena", or "The 
Blue Terror", popular names for the 
old bus. is in need of retirement. 

The new bus will be modern in all 
ways. It will have reclining individual 
leather upholstered seats. A spacious 
luggage compartment in the back can 
be used for band andathletic equip- 

On each side and on the back of 
the bus will be painted, "Public School 
of Arkansas City", so everyone will 
know who's coming.

We wonder if "Bunt" Speer is cam- 
paigning for a wet state. In his 6th 
hour algebra class, desperatly trying 
to explain a problem he said, "Let 40 
equal anything,- liters, quarts, pints, 
half -pints, or fifths!" 

Janell: Did you notice how my voice 
filled the room today? 

Barbara: Yes. dear. In fact. I no- 
ticed several people leaving to make 
room for it. 

If the first hour chemistry class 

doesn't get smarter soon, the school 
is going to be without a chemistry 
floor. It seems that such ridiculous 
answers are sometimes given, that all 
Mr. Stark can do is jump up and down. 

Do you know that if you're 40 and 
marry a girl 20, you'll be 60 when she 
is 40? But if you're 20, and marry a 
woman of 40, you'll both reach 60 at 
about the same time. 

Congrats to: 

The cast of "Arsenic and Old Lace" 
for a swell performance. 

The new cheerleaders and the "old" 
cheerleaders. They really look nice in 
their new uniforms. 

Bebe Jo must have been dreaming 
about the past years when she led the 
yells in pep assembly. Anyway, tne 
footballers let out a big uproar w'len 
she said, "Let's all yell "Beat 'em Bull- 
dogs, Beat 'em!" 

Well, it's time to si rv :i off again. Be

Tigers Are Home Grown 

In contrast to the average college 
football team, which includes men 
whose homes range far outside the 
immediate vicinity, Arkansas City's 
Tigers are almost entirely home 
grown. The only out-of-town talent 
includes Don Bohannon of Ceder Vale

Tigers Down 
Pratt By 
27-12 Count 

Fratt junior college went down in 
defeat as the ambitious Tigers tore 
loose last Friday at Curry Field and 
scored a 27 to 12 conference triumph 
over the westerners. Both .iuco elevens 
were trying to get back on the winning- 
side of the ledg r in conference games 
but Pratt found the potent Speermen 
overpowering in every department. 

The eager Beavers hit pay dirt 
first in the iritial period when a lateral 
attempt to Berry was intercepted by 
Sanford and run back for a TD. A 
penalty was declined by Pratt and 
the visiting squad led, 6 to 0. The at- 
tempted conversion was not good. 

A series of passes to the local ends 
led the Tigers toward the end zone 
and Norman Smyer slashed through 
the line for the counter. 

McCutcheon converted. The kickoff 
was returned to the 25. but "Chic" 
Martin caught an attempted pass and 
fashed the 27-yard distance for a 
second Tiger TD. Mac again convert°d 
and the locals led 14 to 6. 

The second quarter found both teams 
unable to score until late in the period 
when Gardner drove over from the 
two after a Gilstrap to Cliv ra^s 
brought the ball to that point. The 
half ended as the Beavers received 
the kickoff. Score,20 to 6. 

The Speermen drove to the Pratt 
10 a-> the third period got under 
way, but were unable to push on across 
as three prss attempts were unsuc- 
cessful, and the Beavers took over 
on downs. After an exchange of fum- 
bles. Pratt punted to their own 25. 
and again the Arks began a drive 
which ended when pint-sized Don Lyle 
roared through the line to score stand- 
ing up. McCutcheon's kick was good, 
and the score read 27 to 6. Tigers. 

An aerial attack bv the visPing 
eleven saw Legan passing to Herring- 
ton to the 35 as the latter made a 
beautiful sn?s; while running back- 
wards. The Rader brothers made up 
the battery for the next play and 
completed the 25-yard aerial to hit 
pay dirt. The conversion attempt was 

Ark defense was super 1 -) as the 
locals held the opposition to a total 
of 6 first downs and marked up a total 
of 14 for themselves Manv times the 
home team slashed for large gains 
as the linemen opened the holes for 
the hard charging backfield. ard fans 
saw substitutes carry the ball for 
important yardage and two counters. 

Hard-smashing Joe Berry sat out th ■ 
last half due to an injury received 
in first half scrimmage, but chalked uo 
69 yards in 7 tries the first half. Other 
iniuries may have been costly, but 
it is hoped that the entire squad will be 

in shape for the next enco'untr. 

Gridders Eye 
Western City 

Coach "Bunt" Speer and his fight- 
Tigers will again take to the road on 
October 30, when they meet Garden 
City on the western city gridiron. 
This tilt will be a conference scramble 
and the Arks are attempting a holding 
operation after dropping one confer- 
ence go to Hutchinson. The Broncs 
have been unimpressive in their foot- 
ball campaign thus far this year, but 
could give the Arks some difficulty 
on home grounds. 

On the following Wednesday, the 
Peal gri'ders will entertain the Conqs, 
from Dodge City, who have a number 
o" reguPrs on the injury list. The ail- 
will probably be back in form again 
ard ready for the contest, however. 
Dodge City lost to powerful Hutchin- 
son recently, but managed to push 
e cross a counter as they came out on 
the short end of a 39 to 6 decision. 
This evidence shows their potential 
punching power, as the Arks were 
unable to score on the Salt City eleven. 
A hard fought game is in the making 
and should be played to a capacity 


Tiger Team Light 

The juco backs boast an average 
weight of only 162 pounds, the line- 
men 178 pounds. Above figures are 
for the entire squad. The usual start- 
ing line up levels off at 176 pounds 
fyom end to end and 173 for the back- 
field men. 

Blue Dragons 
Squeeze By 
Tigers, 16-0 

Coach Speer's Tigers fell short in 
a futile attempt to upset the power- 
house Bhie Dragon eleven at Hutch- 
inson, October 16, and lost under the 
lights of Gowan Stadium, 14 to 0. 

It wasn't until the waning seconds 
of the second quarter that Dragon 
White flipped a counter to Bob Kelley 
for 24 yards and the first score after 
a high Dragon punt had been dropped 
by an AC man and Todd recovered 
for the home eleven. The attempted 
conversion was wide. 

A third quarter Red and Blue score 
was nullified by a penalty and the Ben- 
gal line, with backs to the wall, dug 
in on their own five to take over on 

The final quarter found the Dragons 
again in scoring position but the 
stubborn Tiger line yielded nothing 
and Hutch elected to try for a field 
goal. Fullback Gibson calmly sent the 
ball squarely between the goalposts -,. 
for a 9 to lead. 

A 50-yard drive found Bogner scor- 
ing from the 15. and the successful 
conversion brought the count to 16 to 

The Tiger attack bogged in every 
department and the Arks couldn't find 
the way to pay territory. However, 
defensive efforts were very evident, 
as the Hutchinson crew was held to 
its lowest score of the season

The Basement Buzz 

Pep, Band Mahed, 

A relatively new but thriving orga- 
nization in the junior college this year 
is the pep band. In past years, at- 
tempts have been made to develop 
such an organization, but without 
success. This year, however, there was 
a heartening response to the call, and 
a peppy band has developed. Up to 
the present, this band has played at 
all home games and all pep assemblies, 
adding much to each and every event. 

Approximately fifteen students now 
play in the band which holds practice 
sessions every Tuesday and Thursday. 
The spontaneous pep, willingness to 
sacrifice, and school spirit exhibited 
by this group are something to be 
admired and sought by the other stu- 
dents of the college.

Education, achieving knowledge, 
and fellowship prove to be the main

tion," Why are you attending junior 
college ? "

Frank Wayne Hylton— "What an 
upstanding student would s^y — + i 
get an education, of course." (Ha! 

Joe Berry — "So I won't have to go 
to work." 

Glenn Haslett — "I have an immense 
thirst for knowledge." 

Elmer Morris — "I want to be where 
1 can have my friends around me. It 
gets so lonesome hanging around the 
pool hall all day." 

Mary Pudden — "You have to start 
somewhere, juco is as good a place 
as any." 

James Heinz — "To keep out of the 
Navy, but I'm joining up next year." 

Bill Bailey — "Mainly because every- 
body talked me into it." 

Bill Bartholomew — "To £°t an edu- 
cation, but I'm not doing so well." 

Claus Thieson — "Ha! Ha! That's a 
good question." 

Ted Branine — "I haven't quite 
figured that one out." 

Dorothy Vanskike — "To give my 
folks a breathing spell."

Arks Scuttle 
Dodge City 
By 14-6 Win 

Coach Speer's fighting Tigerman 
won another grid battle November 3, 
at Curry Field, whipping the Dodge 
City Conqs 26 to 7. 

Not until early in the second period 
did Boyles, on a brilliant flip from 
Gilstrap, cross the double stripe. An 
attempted conversion was not success- 
ful. The homesters drove to the Dodge 
five, after receiving the opening kick- 
off, but relinquished the ball on downs. 
Again the Tigers drove to within 10 
yards of pay territory, but failed to 

A blocked kick which rolled back 
to the Arks 24 yard line, then a pass 
interference decision on the 10, gave 
the Conqs the opportunity they 
needed, and a pass-lateral play paid 
off, tying it up at six all. The western 
backs bucked over to go ahead with 
a one point advantage, which tney 
held at the half. 

The Bengals came to life as the 
second half got under way and they 
quickly went out in front 12 to 7, 
when Gilstrap ripped over from the 
six. Again the conversion attempt 
failed. An intercepted pass gave the 
Tigers another scoring opportunity 
and Gilstrap made a brilliant run, 
behind great blocking from the 26, 
but the play was nullified when an 
official ruled the Ark back-field in 
motion. Later, after the mighty-mite 
Lyle carried the leather to the 8, and 
Gilstrap another five yards, Gardner 
plunged for the third TD. McCut- 
cheon's kick bounced on the cross-bar 
and on over, and the score read 19 
to 7. 

During the fourth quarter, the sec- 
ond string backs were not to be 
stopped and Smyer bulled to the 
enemy three; Lyle drove another yard 
and on the next play a fumble which 
Tackle Ted Templar pounced on. gave 
the Bengals another counter. McCut- 
cheon converted with a beautiful kick 
to hit a 50 per cent mark for the 

The closing minutes were filled with 
excitement as the western city was 
awarded a 15 yard penalty, via 
unnecessary roughness, and another 
interference with pass receiver decis- 
ion gave them the ball deep in Ark 
City territory. Time ended the tussle 
and the Arks were victorious again, 
remaining undefeated on home soil.

Grid Finale Will 
Be in El Dorado 

The junior college Tigers close the 
current gridiron season Friday, Nov- 
ember 19, when they lock horns with 
the ElDorado Grizzlies on the latter's 
home field. 

The Grizzlies should have a slight 
edge over the Speermen, since they 
will be on familiar grounds, and will 
probably give the Ark gridders con- 
siderable excercise before the final 
gun sounds. 


Tigars Win Ovar 
Broncs 15-7 

Arkansas City Jucos slid by the 
Garden City Broncs Saturday, October 
30, in a tight grid game played on the 
latter's home grounds, by a 15 to 7 

After driving to the western city's 
three, a costly fumble spurred the 
Tigers to drive past the Garden foward 
wall to tackle the ball carrier and gain 
a 2-point advantage, Later in the same 
period, a 36-yard drive found Joe Berry 
rumbling over from the six. 

Tiger defenders dug in on their own 
to halt a third quarter Bronc drive, 
but the Garden City club slashed back 
to score a few minutes later. 

Quarterback Doyle Gilstrap drove 
over from the three to climax a 70- 
yard attack in the final stanza to end 
the scoring. McCutcheon's extra point 
try was successful and the Bengals 
held the count at 15 to 7. 

Garden City then moved toward 
touchdown territory, but the Tigers 
had possession of the ball as the gun

After holding the Pirates on the 1 
foot line, then punting, the Tigers 
let the opposition tally and convert, 
shortly before the period ended. 

Gardner skirted his own right end 
for sharp 44 yard jaunt, but was over- 
taken on the enemy 32, the Arks later 
losing the ball on a penalty. The initial 
Ark score saw Gilstrap flip a fat 
pass to Berry who hit pay dirt. Mc- 
Cutcheon's conversion attempt failed. 

Another bad break came when a wild 
pass from center to Boyles, who was 
in purling position, gave the east- 
erners another scoring opportunity. 
They quickly turned it into another 
TD and converted. Score at intermis- 
sion stood 14 to 6, Firates. 

Roaring northward after receiving 
the third period kickoff. the four horse- 
men in the Ark back-field drove 65 
yards, to score as the linemen opened 
th-» rugged enemy forward wall and 
it was Murray Boyles who climaxed 
the attack. The scat-back tore through 
the line to a counter from the 8 to 
make it 12 to 14.

Wheat Bowl 
Big Event 
For Queens 

Despite the unexpected handicap of 
rainy and snowy weather, the Wheat 
Bowl events planned for the visiting- 
queens by the junior chamber of com- 
merce of Wichita went off as scheduled 
Saturday, November 27. 

From the twelve girls, each a repre- 
sentee from a junior college in the 
eastern and western division of Kansas 
was to be chosen the Wheat Bowl 
queen of 1948. 

When the girls arrived at Wichita 
about 11:30, they were met by the 
Jaycee Jaynes, who showed them to 
their rooms in the Lassen Hotel. At 
twelve noon, the girls met in the hotel 
banquet room with the four judges and 
ate their lunch together. The judges 
secretly made their final discisions at 
that time. 

Following lunch, the girls were each 
given corsage? a"d were escorted to 
the scene of the afternoon's game, at 
Veterans' Field. Because of the con- 
tinous rain, the six visiting- bands 
present were unable to march. The 
bands were from Arkansas City. Inde- 
pendence, Coffeyville, ElDorado Hutch- 
and Dodge City. 

The queens names were announced 
as they came onto the field and the 
president cf the Wichita junior cham- 
b r of commerce then announced Miss 
Jeanine Stte'e of Iola, as Wheat bowl 
queen ard presented her vith a bo- 
quet of yellow chrysanthemums. Her 
two attendants were Eloise Heshamp 
from Dodge City, and Jean Wadsack 
from Parsons. 

At the dance that evening, the queen 
was crowned and given a $100 certifi- 
cate for clothes at Garfields. Her two 
attendents were each given a radio 
and the other girls were g:ive gold 

After recovi ring from the rain and 
snow, Bebe Jo Louderback, ACJC foot- 
ball queen and our c n+e=tant for 
Wheat bowl queen, said, "We all had 
a nice time d^snite the terrible wea- 
ther conditions."

But o'er the scene a veil decends,

What is it now that bursts within 

Of love and Home? 

And whirls my thoughts into a maze 

So fleeting and fragile, 'tis love

Ac a matter of fact, I was sick of

Lngiisn instructor stopped me and

and sack your head out tne window

feeling still lower. I encountered a 
new freshman girl. Her teeth were

Tigers End 
Grid Season 

The junior college football squad, 
for the third successive year since the 
post-war renewal of the grid sport 
in juco circles, has completed a win- 
ning season. 

Coach "Bunt" Speer's 19.48 edition 
of Tiger pigskin-toters ended their 
campaign Monday night with a sea- 
son's record of five wins and four 
losses and a tie for second place in the 
tough western conference. 

The Bengals played five games at 
home and proved almost invincible 
on the Curry Field turf, losing only a 
tight 14-12 contest to Independence 

The Arks proved to be one of the 
state's outstanding football teams and 
were lauded on several occasions for 
their playing ability and also their 
clean playing and splendid sportsman-

Bengals Open 
Basketball Sessions 

The Ark basketballers inauguarate 
the current season December 3 when 
St. John's of Winfield invade the 
local auditorium and play Coach 
Speer's cagers. 

The season opener should have plen- 
ty of fireworks as the Johnnies gene- 
rally always put a strong quintet on 
the hard-boards. 

Last year, the two fives s'quared off 
at each other in the season opener in 
Winfield with the Bengals coming out 
on top with a 44-42 victory. Ironically, 
the Speerman also copped the home 
encounter by an identical score. The 
Johnnies will be out to get tomorrow's 
game under their belts. 

Coach "Bunt" Spear and the Ark 
roundballers have been worldrg out 
for the past week, and hope to be 
reedy for the initial encounter. 

Some 30 h >pef uls started the pre- 
season practice sessions, however, a 
few have dropped the strenuous sport.

First Wheat 
Bowl Game 
Ends in Tie 

The Hutchinson Blue Dragons and 
the Coffeyville Red Ravens sloshed 
their way through rain and mud to a 
6 to 6 standoff in the first annual 
Wheatbowl game, Saturday, Novem- 
ber 27. 

The struggle for the Kansas junior 
college championship proved a good 
closer than was expected by most of 
Ihe "experts". Coffeyville scored the 
first touchdown on halfback Du'i 
Berry's 60-yard jaunt with only a min- 
ute and twenty seconds left in the 
first half. The kick was wide. 

Hutch did not score until late in the 
third quarter, after muffing several 
chances, Bob Kelly going over tackle 
from the 6-yard line after a blocked 
punt. The kick, that would have won 
the game, was far to the left. 

Both teams threatened in the final 
stanza with Coffeyville uncorking an 
affective passing attack, but neither 
scored as interceptions broke up goal 
line opportunities. Hutchinson had the 
c dge in yardage with a total 100 to 89, 
and they also led 7 first downs to 6. 

The Dragons accepted a bid to plav 
Kilgore, Texas, in the Texas Rose 
Bowl, December 11. 

El Dorado 
Upsets Ark 
Eleven 19-6 

El Dorado Juco stopped the Arks 
November 22, in the division firab' 
played on the Grizzly gridiron with 
a 19 to 16 upset victory, which topped 
the El Dorado homecoming. 

Quickly takine- a 13 — point le-'d in 
the first half, the Grizzlies held the 
upper hand all the way as the pi - e- 
viously potent Tigers could not pene- 
trate the Butler country wall of de- 

A Bengal drive in the second quart- 
er found Berry pushing to pay dirt 
from the 6 — yard stripe after a 72 — 
yard sustained drive townfield, but 
a lengthy 54 — yard sprint by Paine, 
Grizzly half-back, gave the home team 
a 13 to 6 half time advantage. The 
conversion by Ewert was successful. 

Repeatedly striving for the tying 
pointer, the Speerman drove goal- 
ward early in the third stanza, bu'; 
the El Dorado eleven would not re- 
linquish and held, after digging in 
mi their own three. 

Pence again scored for the Grizzly 
gridders in the fourth, after a 23-yard 
jaunt by Shafer put the ball on the 
Tiger eight. 

"The boys pi yed good ball and 
m."de few mistakes," said Ark each 
"Bunt' Sp er. "but El Dorado played 
heads-up ball all the way.' 

The "aine ended the El Dorado juco 
homec n'ing in good style, as the 
homecoming queen was crowned dur- 
ing half-time ceremonies.

Wide OfLfixvitunittf, 

If any junior college student, male 
oj- female, would like an opportunity 
to make full use of his speech talents 
or if anyone likes good competition 
v ith local and st ite reeongnition, he 
should consult Allan Maag as soon as 

The opportunity will be the Forensic 
tournament at S '. John's college, 
March 11-12, 1949, with plenty of 
competition and plenty of local and 
state recognition. Certificates of a- 
wards will be presented. 

The wide field of forensic activities 
will give anyone and everyone an 
opportunity to make full use of their 
speech talents. ... 

The eleven forensic events are de- 
bate, oration, oratorical declamation, 
extempore speaking, impromptu 
speaking, book reviewing, story tell- 
ing radio speaking, dramatic reading, 
bible reading, and poetry reading. 

"Every student who is at all inter- 
ested in this type of work should begin 
now to make plans for this tourna- 
ment. It is indeed an opportunity for 
all", says Mr. Maag who urges the 
students to see him as soon as possible 
to begin preparation. 

There is something for everyone.

Shiny New Club Room 
!s Juco's Christmas Present 

Everyone has heard the expression, 
"Duz does everything," many times, 
but now the students of ACJC will be 
saving, "We'll do everything to put the 
club-rooms in good shape again." 

Yes, with the help of the student 
council, the TAC, and all the juco 
students, the iuco club-rooms will have 
a "new look" for the "new year", 1949. 

"Let's shoot the works in fixing up 
the club rooms", said Kenneth 
"Whitey" Falls as he explained that 
the entire room would be redecorated, 
probably on Saturday, Dec. 18. 

Plans so far call for new paint, 
clean curtains, repainted wood-work,' 
a workable radio-phonograph, a new 
ping pong table, a new top for the old 
table, and clean floors. The TAC has 
given $50 to help pay the expence of 
this project. 

The last big clean up of the club 
rooms was in March, 1946. when se- 
veral jucos saw the need for the clean- 
up. At that time, they repaired and re- 
finished the furniture and ping pong 
table, redecorated walls and obtained 
a record holder. 

The club rooms were officially 
opened March 18, 1942 with a social 
in the lounge and senior high gym. 
This opening was made possible by 
the foresight of several teachers and 

students. The- club room was formerly 
the old high school shower and locker 

This year v itn the help and coop- 
eretion rf evervone, the students can 
".hoot the works" and make the club 
rooms an even more enioyable place 
to be. The studen's of ACJC can give a 
( hristmas g'f t to the school and to 
then 1 '-"Ives by helping in every way 
possi' le to give the club rooms that 
"new look" for th° "new year."

makes the highest score on a com-

for a busier person could not be found 
around ACJC. 

As president of the TAG, Fhil ha? 
many responsibilites and is doing a 
swell job. Besides these extra jobs 
outside of classes, he is taking chem- 
istry, physics, economics and calculus.

Three Games 
To Be Played 
On the Road 

The local juco five travel for three 
consecutive contests in the near fut- 
ure. Two of the games are return 
matches with Parsons and the St. 
Johnnies of Winfield. The first of the 
trio, January 16, will see a strong 
Pratt ream playing host to the Ben- 
gals. Last year, the Prattsters hung 
iwo decisive defeats on Ark City and 
v ill bo out to repeat their victories. 
This tilt is expected to have a decisive 
bearing on the outcome of the title 

Coach Ed Wade has eighteen men 
who answered the call at Pratt and 
is expected to floor a better than 
average team. Returning letter men 
include the Rader brothers, Dorl and 
Lyle, Ed Harrington, Clayton Reed, 
and Warren Chancy. Coach Speer's 
boys will be host to this quintet 
January 15, and expect some speedy 
competition from the western division 

The following Friday's game pits 
the occupants of the one-two berths of 
the recent Chanute invitational tour- 
ney against each other at Parsons. 
Each team has a victory over the other 
the Arks winning on their home floor 
early in the season and Parsons tak- 
ing the finale at Chanute by a narrow 
margin. Mawhinney will be the big 
gun to squelch for the high-scoring 
machine. Center Bill Clay should make 
a real scoring duel out of the match 
when the two clubs meet January 18. 

The Johnnies lay host to the local 
five January 21, when they will try 
to avenge an early season 42-40 de- 
feat. Big Center Otte will be the oppo- 
nent to cover in this contest which 
always turns into an excitement pack- 
ed 40 minutes. The Tigers go into the 
duel as slight favorites and pack a 
terrific scoring punch, as they have 
shown in their recent outings.

Arkansas City Downs 

Hutchinson, 39 37 

Arkansas City junior college set a 
terrific scoring pace late in the final 
period, January 3, to down the spirited 
Hutchinson Blue Dragons, 39 to 37. 
High-scoring Bill Clay poured through 
19 points to keep the Ark nets scorch- 
ing and earn high honors for the win- 

Behind eleven points at half-time, 
the Bengal offensive machine began to 
roll late and the Tigers hui\g 16 points 
on the scorebooks while holding Hutch 
to only three, to win their hard earned 
victory. It was the initial divisional 
contest and gave them a perfect start 
in the percentage figures. It also put 
Bill Clay in the number one position 
on the score books of the western

Coffeyville invaded the Ark strong- 
hold December 15, and found Coach 
Speer's highly regarded five as pote:u 
as advertised, taking a shellacking, 
38 to 30. 

In a rough and tumble affair, the 
stocky Ravens could not cope with the 
home club's fast moving attack, led 
by hard driving Bill Clay who was 
high for AC with 15 points. 

In the second game of the week, 
Arkansas City Juco tucked another 
basketball victory under their belts 
December 17, in halting a tall, ag- 
gressive Parsons quintet 30 to 24. The 
Arks led all the way, holding a com- 
manding lead at the half, though the 
visitors had the entire starting five 
returning from their fine '47-48 

Coach Speer's rangy Tigers looked 
in their best form yet in trimming 
their eastern foe. Parson's could not 
find the hoop consistently and Joe 
Berry went high to gain a large per- 
centage of the rebounds, while Bill 
Bartholomew and Bill Clay showed 
their ruggedness under the baskets 
in a like manner. 

Clay was the main cog in the B"~<--

counters, while Lyle Rutter garnered

quintet in a ruggedly fought game 
for the championship. This was the 
initial loss of the season for the Speer- 
men in seven games. The colorful 
locals, however, copped second place 
honors and brought a beautiful tronhy 
to the Tiger halls for their effort" 

The Tigers lost the services of tall

the fast Parsons crew hard to over-

EXPLANATION __ This is a new- 
variation of an old theme. There are 
no apologies. The Column will attempt 
to second-guess or even editorialize, if 

PRATT the Ark's week-end foe 

is figuring to dent the Bengals win- 
ning record. The Beavers have been 
smearing all their opposition and cur- 
rently share the conference lead with 
the Tigers, both teams downing Hutch 
ar-' Fi Dorado. 

They edged the locals twice last 
year and with the Rader boys figure to 
repeat. Hunter, classy colored flash, 
is also up from high school as an 
added threat. The game could well de- 
cide the outcome of the Western race, 
with the winner a definite contender 
for the championship. 

MORE Pratt may figure to win 

<*« contest — 'and the title)— but if the 
Orange and Black cagers should plav 
as they have in the past — the tide 
could easily go the other way. In fact, | 
we figure they're due for a shock.

QLuL IZzQM ^und 

Have you ever wondered what hap- 
pens to your nickel after it disappears 
into the pop machine or candy vendor? 

The student council is responsible 
for buying the pop, and its members 
are delegated to keep the cooler filled. 
The candy machine is filled by indivi- 
dual who owns the machine. 

The money gained from selling pop 
and candy is used to buy ping pong- 
balls, cards, and other club room 

Recently there has been a misunder- 
standing as to who is responsible for 
ordering pop when the supply runs 
low. Only the finance committee of the 
student council has the authority to 
do this. It has been suggested that 
other individuals refrain from calling 
directly. They may, however, notify 
Bernyce Thomas, Claus Thies' n or 
"Whity" Falls, when they notice that 
the supply is low. 

The cooperation of the entire stu- 
dent body will make this problem a 
thing of the past.

What Si^e 2>a 
fyau Wean? 

A conveniently visible blackmark 
on the reputation of the junior college 
students of this school is the lament- 
able condition of its club room. 

Although recent cleanup campaigns 
have been organized by the more am- 
bitious citizens of the college, little 
general cooperation has been shown 
with their efforts. 

During the Christmas vacation, a 
group of juco students devoted their 
time and consumed much energy in 
an effort to improve the situation by 
painting the club room and adjoining 
hallway. It was hoped that this im- 
provement might jar others into tak- 
ing an attitude of appreciation and 
patriotism for their alma mater's wel- 
fare. However, evidence to the con- 
trary in the form of black marks and 
other disfigurements on the clean 
wall has ruined their hopes. 

The janitors do their part by seeing 
to it that the room is swept several 
times a week. The only evidence of 

The Basement Buzz 

Howdy, all you jucos! There sure is 
a lot of snow 'round 'ere, isn't there? 
But- -there's still plenty of buzzing 
'round ACJC, so let's get started. 

There is still controversy over who 
really purchased the calend r in D. C. 
Stark's class room. Did Stark make 
the purchase himself, or , as he claims, 
did some of his students pro/ide the 
Esquire art work? But wait __ Did 
Stark take it home, or does he have it 
hidden with the other highly volatile 
materials in his store room ? ! ? 

Dorthy Haslett raised quite a stink 
in the halls last week. Seems she broke 
a bottle of hand-lotion. Wonder if she 
was trying to soften the floors ? ! 

We're glad to see Bob Goodrich is 
back to school after spending a week 
with the measles. 

"What shall I say about the two 
peroxide blondes who had such a fuss 
at the game last night?''' 

Editor: "Why. just say thai the 
bleachers went wild." 

Thinking is the hardest work there 
i. : -, which is probably why so few 
( ngage in it. 

Council Plans 
Youth Project 

A project of "Youth helps Youth" 
has been undertaken by the student 
council. This was decided at its meet- 
ing, January 12. A letter from the War 
Department was re'ceived asking ACJC 
to write letters to foreign groups of 
students. The idea of the program is to 
spread assurance of how democracy 

Royce Makin will be the actual let- 
ter writer, but the students are to pre- 
sent the ideas. 

Other business settled was the 
approvement of Herb Jimmerson's 
band for the Tigerama. 

responsibility shown by the students 
is in the form of broken records, 
marred furniture, candy papers, brok- 
en tables, empty pop bottles and other 
examples of misuse strewn about the 

Because of these deplorable cond- 
itions, the club room committee is 
talking about closing the room for a 
short period in an effort to bring a 
sense of appreciation to the students. 

If cooperation could replace the 
havoc enusuing in our recreation and 
study room, it could be a clean, att- 
ractive, and neat place that meets 
the student, and public eye, instead 
of a disorderly, dilapidated eyesore. 
If (he shoe fits, wear it! 

Harold Keller was sporting a band- 
ag e on his forehead last week, 
seems he cut a small gash in his head 
when he slipped and hit the radiator in

dog. but his legs are too short. 

Clerk: Too short? They reach to the

There have been rumors that Bill 
Cardner beat up his wife, CInrlene, 
la c t week. But — that skinned up nose 
of hers is the resu't of too much sled- 
ding at Spring Hill. She just decided 
she could do without her sled, and it 
didn't work out so well. 

Another Spring Hill casualty of the 

sledding season was displayed by Jack 

Chambers. As a result of trying to 

run bis sled through a tree, he was 

limping around school for several days 

after. At the last report, we hear that

Ex-Spy Singer 
Speaks To Juco's 

Kurt Singer, on his transcontinental 
tour of the United States, spoke to the 
students of ACJC, January 14. 

One of the interesting things in his 
speech was that he had lived in eight 
different countries and was closely 
associated with the underground in 
besieged countries. 

Singer told of his publication of the 
earliest German underground news- 
papers for which the Nazis issued a 
warrant for high treason against him. 
He was held a short time in Sweden 
when Goering demanded that the 
Swedish government confiscate 
Singer's biography of the Luftwaffe 
chi' f. 

The assembly was concluded with 
questions asked by the audience.

He played on the football team this 
year as a halfback. 

A Good Cur Is 

Hard to Find 

— Drive Carefully 

O where, oh where, has my little dog 

where, oh where, can he be? 
That's an appropriate epitaph for 
the tombstone of little Johnnie Fulks. 
Johnnie loved his little doj>', anil 
though he was only a little boy of 
three, he woulel have given his life 
to protect "Rags." 

And that is just what happenend. 
"Rags" is not a pretty dog. Many 
would call him a mongrel. But he was 
the best of pals with Johnnie. They 
were inseparable. But the little dog 
loved to dash into the streest in hot 
pursuit of an old alley cat This was 
fun! Johnnie followed "Rags" yester- 
day, running after him where ever 
he went. And then appeared the cat. 
Zing! The pup was off like a shot, 
with little Johnnie tagging along as 
best he could. Brakes screamed. There 
was a soft thud. A woman shrieked 
from a porch. 

The man alighted from his car 
quickly, then rushed to the hospital, 
too late. 

Yes, little Johnnie is gone. No more 
will the world hear his shining laugh- 
ter, nor the patter of his footsteps, 
following the merry barks of his great 
pal "Rags". No more. But "Rags" 
will still be here, and after all, that's 
what counts. For little brats are a 
dime a dozen, but a dog like "Rags", 
who has sixty-seven types of dogs 
in him, comes but once in a lifteime.

Twenty Years of Organization 
Are Fruitful for Dinner Club 

For approximately twenty years the 
Dinner Club . as served as the main 
social organization of the Arkansas 
City junior college . 

This club, probably boasting the 
longest eininuous history of any club 
in the school, was started by Miss 
Pauline Sleeth as an extracurricular 
activity for the speech class. 

The purpose of the club is to give 
the members of the speech class an 
opportunity to appear in a play, given 
once a year; chances to give after- 
dinner speeches, after meals prepareel 
by members of the class; ancl to give 
each practice in the fine art of acting 
as host and hostess. 

Give Formal Dinners 

Meetings are held on the third 
Tuesday of the month. The types of 
meetings vary from large dinners to 
picnics in the spring. 

The highlight of the club's activi- 
ties is a big, formal dinner given each 

si mester, which members look for- 
ward to weeks ahead of time. 

At present there are fourteen mem- 
bers of the club. Officers are Bob 
Adams, president; Helen Owens, vice- 
president; Edna Robson, secretary; 
and Catherine Stover, treasurer. Miss 
Pauline B. Sleeth is sponsor. 

Christmas Dinner 

The past semester was climaxed 
with a Christmas dinner prepared in 
the school kitchen and served in room 
6, by members of the club. The room 
was decorated with pine branches anel 
a brightly decorated Christmas tree, 
with presents beneath. 

Following the final exam in the 
speech class the students enjoyed a 
luncheon and held a discussion of cur- 
rent affairs. 

The new semester brings plans for 
a "bigger and better" play to be pre- 
sented by the class.

The juco basketball squad have their 
work laid out for them during the next 
two weeks, when they meet four tough 
foes for a series of five games. Hutch- 
inson, Dodge City. Garden City, and 
Pratt are all on the agenda which in- 
cludes two meetings with the touted 
Dodge City Conquistadores 

This Friday brings the Hutchinson 
Blue Dragons here for a return engag-

triumph on the Dragon home floor. 
The following night pits the high-fly-

Bengals together in a contest for the 
undisputed lead of the Western Con-

Next, the Orange and Black cag?rs 
journey f r a return contest at Dodge 
Friday," stop over at Garden City 
Saturday, and return in time to play 
host to the rugged Pratt Beavers on 
the following Tuesday. The Tigers 
have little consolation in th ,j fact that 
most of their opponents will be well 
rested for the tilt with the Arks, who 
are considered a prime target in the 
lush for division honors. 

With competition the hottest in re- 
cent year history, the loss of any one 
game could throw the division into 
a snarl. The Tigers have a job to do.

Arks Blast Pratt 
Grab Top Honors 

Playing what was undeniably their 
best game of the season, an inspired 
juco crew smothered the Pratt JC's 
48 to 38 on the latter's court. January 
16, to garner a temporary claim on the 
top spot of the league. 

The victory at the same time knock- 
ed the Beavers out of the tie f r first 
place by inflicting their initial loss of 
the current season. The issue of the 
game was never in doubt as the Tigers 
grabbed a quick lead on big Joe Berry's 
goals' and hever lagged at any point of 
the encounter. Priority performance, 
however, was turned in by Lyle Rutter 
stellar guard, who did his best job of 
the year in limiting Hunter, classy 
colored flash, to one field goal and 
three charity tosses, his lowest total 
of the season. 

In winning the Bengals cleared a 
major obstacle course to the champ- 
ionship. All members of the team 
showed improved passing and rebound 
ing skill, outhustling the Pratt five

Juco Squads 
Get Hand In 
Play-Off Till 

The first annual Wheat Bowl contest 
for the Kansas Juco Championship 
turned out to be a financial success, for 
the junior colleges at least. After the 
counting of the final penny, there wa • 
a gross income of $6,893.1)3 derived 
from ticket sales and program tale. 
and advertising. The game, despite ad- 
verse and conflicting weather condit- 
ions cleared a tidy sum of $3,947.73, 
after expenses. 

Of this sum the Kansas Public- 
Junior College Association re- 
cieved 60%,or $2,368.64. and the 
Wichita Junior Chamber of Com- 
merce 40%,or $1,579.09, as per 

The K.P.J.C.A. share has been dis- 
tributed among the mtmb.r schools 
on the basis of 257, each to the par- 
ticipating teams, 207 to the Associa- 
tion itself and 37 to each of the re- 
maining ten colleges. On this system 
Hutchinson and Cofl'eyville received 
$592.16 apiece, the conference $473.73. 
and each other school an equal share 
of $71.06. 

All of which makes the debut a suc- 
cessful one with the hopes of an even 
better record at the finish of next 
year's playoff.

BILL CLAY__has retained his hold 
on the scoring honors for the western 
division and another Bill, Mawhiney 
by name, is leading the eastern sector 
after recent splurges. Ark City fans 
will remember the Parsons star, who 
scored some 26 points when the Tigers 
were upset in the Chanute Tourney 

THE TIGERS-do indeed face a 
tough night or two in the coming 
weeks. The race is becoming one of 
most fiercely contested in the history 
of the league. Few. if any, games are 
. what might be called "breathers", 
with all teams capable of defeating 
any of the rest on the right night. 

MORE--this was ably demonstrated 
in the latest games as Garden City, 
downed earlier by Dodge in convinc- 
ing fashion, proceeded to knock the 
props from under the Conqs in turn- 
ing the tables... The Conqs, by the 

Arks Subdue 
A Late Rally, 
Win No. 10 

Warding off a last minute bid for 
an upset, the Tigers pulled a thriller 
out of the fire, Tuesday, to defeat the 
St. Johns Eagles 42 to 38. 

After trailing throughout most of 
the game by a margin close to ten 
points, the Johnnies took advantage 
of the loss of Tiger center Bill Clay, 
a key offensive and defensive player, 
to stage a red hot rally that fell short 
of the mark. 

The Arks got off to a good start, 
and penetrated the normally tight 
Eagle zone with comparative ease, 
lapsing and driving for numerous 
close snots and lay-ups. All five cylin- 
ders of the juco machine caught the 
spark after Bob Sneller opened the 
local scoring wit.i a long set-shot from 
the side, t lom then on it was all Ark 
City until the departure of Clay on 
personals, mid-way in the second half. 

All members of the squad displayed 
their usual heads-up brand of ball, 
with Joe "Horse" Berry turning in 
an outstanding game on both defense 
and attack, in addition to sweeping 
the boards. The victory lengthened the 
win string of the Tigers to 10 tri- 
umphs against a lone defeat. Clay's 
13 counters were again high for the 
Orange and Black. 

Coach "Bunt" Speer put a starting 
five on the floor that included Bartho- 
lomew, Rutter. Clay. Sneller, and 

way, had only a few nights earlier 
taken Pratt into camp by a goodly 
margin...I ■ ratt in turn, has whipped 
Garden. Confusing, but it ought to 
prove to some die-hards the fallacy of 
comparative scores in the ha.rd.vood 

TENNIS-and track addicts are al-

Described by 
Dr. Schwegler 

Junior college students had their 
complexes straighten out by Dr. Ray- 
mond A. Schwegler, noted University 
of Kansas psychologist and lecturer, 
at private conferences held in the 

The noted speaker explained the 
difficulties of trying to adjust our- 
selves to living and outlined the make- 
up of the mind. The three layers of the 
according to him, are the conscious, 
sub-conscious, and instinctive. 

The first story of tne conscious mind 
occupies 10 per cent or less of the 
whole, says Dr. Schwegler. Here ra- 
tional thinking and evaluation take 

We Never Forget 

The second layer or the sub-con- 
scious is the storehouse of past exper- 
iences. It makes up about a third of the 
mind. According to Dr. Schwegler, one 
never forgets anything stored in this 
part of the mind. Happenings and inci- 
dents are labled as good or bad, plea- 
sant or unpleasant. Later the pleasant 
things will turn up again. The value of 
the labels are subject to change by 
suggestion, the speaker added. Habits 
are formed on this level. 

Original instinct or basic drives form 
the last layer of the mind, stated the 
lecturer. These are the fundamental 
drives and impulses that give us the 
want of security, freedom, and recog- 

Bowl-licking Impulse 

"Man has found that living in group 
requires adjustment," states Dr. Sch- 
wegler. Social taboo arises from group 
living. Conscience, by his definition, is 
the sum total of taboos that are 

"Bowl licking" is the term applied 
to an impulse that has to be curbed or 
stopped by parents or others, while 
the person was still young. Mechanism 
of evasion are results of this impulse. 
He listed the mechanisms of envasion 
as rationalization, compensation, iden- 
entification, projection and introduc- 

Following the lecture, a question 
period was held. Private conferencse 
were held during the dav with Dr. 
Schwegler by students wishing to have 
questions answered and to recieve ad-

To state's effort at a liquor bill as 
now moved to tiie house of representa- 
tives, which has introduced its own 
brainchild in opposition to the senate- 
approved measure. 

Both proposed laws call for splitting 
profits between the state general fund, 
and the county and city treasuries — 
the house 50-50, and the senate 80- 
20 — with the state taking the biggest 
bite. From which of the pockets, tnen, 
could the schools expect the most? 
For most schools are tax-supported — 
long having too many words, and too 
little cash from our Sunflower sc^te 
in general. 

At first glance the house bill seems 
the most favorable, providing the 
cities and counties closest to t..e needs 
with equal shares of the dividends. 
r l he plan would back-lire if the 
smaller governments scattered their 
shares over a wider range. Sorrow- 
fully, they usually do — brushing off 
pleas with more talk and even less 

In this attitude the senate plan 
would prove a little more acceptable, 
assuring more of a lump sum to be 
distributed from a larger single 
source — plus whatever was doled out 
from the county or city. In the same 
tone, under the house proposition the 
state might feel less obligation to 
give away any juicy portions from its 
private slice. 

A little hazy it's admitted — but a 
matter of concern as it elfects — 
(excepting the church) — the most im- 
portant institution for preserving our 
free democratic life — Education.

The Basement Buzz 

Now that we have all settled down 
to the steady grind of a new semester, 
let us paws to get the lowdown on the 

Speech classes are interesting- 
things. Some of the incidents tnat 
happen are quite funny. James Austin 
siarted hi; spetc.i of introduction 
with, "I'm James Austin," from the 
back of the room a loud HIC! 

And in the same class Jack Cham- 
bers was introduced as "the pedestrian 
for 30 Hays." 

The qualification of a Californian 
applying for a driver's license is that 
lie muse speak pig latin, so he can 
talk' to the road hogs. 

One of the incidents left out of the 
pep assembly, "The Silent Interlude" 
was that Vincent's mandolin was worth 
six old model "T" tires. 

ACJC has a cover girl among its 
many coeds. Donna Law on appeared 

on the Valentine issue of the K-G-E 
magazine, "Servicegraph". 

Dominoes and moon are competing 
for first place against the old favor- 
ite, pinochle, as a pastime in the club 
l ooms. 


Jeanine Womaeks, alias Atlanta An- 
nie, returned to school this week with 
a sprained ankle. It seems she was 
another victim of the "new look", a 
tight skirt, that is for as she descended 
from a bus, she missed the lower step. 

Many a student would like to drown 
his troubles, but he can't get the teach- 
ers to go in swimming. 

He: "The first time you contradict 
me, I'm going to kiss you." 
She: "You will not!"' 

Mrs. Keene: "Heavens! This is not 
our baby. This is the wrong carriage." 

Kenneth Keene: "Shut up!" 'ihis 
carriage has rubber tires on it." 

Career as Student Manager 

Fits Future Coach H 


One of the main reasons for the 
success of tiie junior college basket- 
ball squad this season has been the 
work of a sophomore boy behind the 
scenes, student manager Eddie 1 1 i c - 

Although Ed's chores are generally 
the same each week, his title as stu- 
dent manager or trainer includes many 
tasks that must be performed well 
in order to keep the ballplayers at 
top efficiency. Ed has been perform- 
ing these tasks very capably since 
he began his training career as a 
senior in the local high schol. 

Although the team manager seldom 
c ;mts in for much glory, nis essen- 
tiality to a sniojui-ru..ii g ball c i> 
has been well proven. Eddie's likeable 
personality and knowledge of athle- 
tics keeps the boys hign, botn pnys- 
ically and mentally. 

Ed, who took up training local 
squads because of the interesting work 
and because he likes to be "around the 
boys", is planning to major in physi- 
cal education at Kansas State next 
year and hopes someday to become 
a coach. His duties as student manager 
are affording valuable experience to 
him in that field. 

Ed's favorite job in his role as a 
stuelent manager is the task of bring- 
ing home a trophy after a basketball 
tournament or track meet. During 

his brief career as student manager, 
Edilie has brought heme te en. 

Ld claims that his training duties 
provide plenty of fun and thrills. No 
one wishes harder for a Tiger vic- 
tory than "Kigbe", as many of the 
boys call him. Ed claims his biggest 
thrill came in one of the many pre- 
carious trips in the ancient blue school 
bus, in December of 1947. when the- 
litis stalled on the ice during a return 
trip trip from Independence. Ed also 
g\.t a great thrill out of training the 
high school team in 1946 under Homer 
Wesche, a team that captured second 
place in the state Class AA tourna- 

But when Ed paused from his round 
of picking towels, taping ankles, giv- 
ing rundowns, and passing out equip- 
ment long enough to name the favorite 
squad he has been associated with, the 
current Tiger basketball team got the 
nod. Ed says the '49 Tiger cagers will 
be a team he'll "always remember as 

Bunt Speer, Juco coach, is another 
reason why Eddie likes hi . b, and all 
the squad members are sincere when 
they wish Ed success in his coaching 
ambitions and extend a hearty thanks 
to him for a job well done. There 
is no doubt in the minds of any of 
them that Ed Hickey will someday be 
a topnotch coach.

A letter was received by Dean K.R. 
Galle recently from a Japanese boy,

"My fervent desire of corresponding 
with American friends made me so 
courageous, forgetting the ashamment 
to show you such a poor style letter.

Vincent Wilson, sophomore, is our 
choice as well as his for our Mr. Ed 
this time. After much persuasion, your 
reporter finally gave in and inter- 
viewed Mr. Wilson, learning that he is 
5'9" tall, has brown hair and two eyes. 

An army veteran, Vincent modestly 
related some experiences during his 
16 months in the service, and then 
went on to tell us he was graduated 
from school here, was born here, moved 
to Guthrie, and then came back here. 

Vincent, who is engaged to Miss 
Rosealee Brown, has a hobby of play-

course offered in juco, and plans to be- 
come President of the United Stat°s 
after his graduation here. If his chief 
executive ambitions fall through, he 
plans to go into business for himself. 

Vincent is a pole vaulter on the 
Tiger track squad, and the cinder sport 
is his favorite. Mr. Ed also likes fried

Meet Miss Co-Ed 

The Miss Co-ed for today is a very 
attractive brown-eyed freshman girl. 
Naturally, she had to be a girl to be 
Miss Co-ed. Anyway, to get back to the 
subject (which isn't hard to do), our 
dark-haired lass is a 5'6" eighteen- 
year old student named Miss Rieswig. 
Everyone calls her Pat, though, be- 
cause that's her first name and who 
calls anyone by their last name ? 

Pat graduated from high school last 
year and is studing to become a lab 
technician. She plans to continue her 
education at Kansas State. Pat was 
born in Wichita, but moved to Ark- 
ansas City during her sophomore year 
in high school. 

Our Miss Co-ed loves fried chicken 
and cherry pie, and enjoys playing- 
cards or listening to "Buttons and 
Bows" or some other musical favorite. 
She thinks all the kids here at junior 
college are swell, especially Don Win- 
slow, but she can't tolerate people who 
use the expression, "get serious.." 

That's about all your reporter could 
learn from the interview except that's 
she's busy the next three nights.

Ghramm Is Speaker at 
Christian Meeting 

Marjorie Ghramm gave a report of 
the recent UNESCO conference at 
Wichita at a meeting of the Christian 
Association held Monday night. A

Reverend Davidson was a special 
guest at that meeting. The meeting

Another Hard Jteaitaif- 
Period Faces 


Juco Squads 

Garden City, Coffeyville, Parsons, 
and Independence comprise a rough 
two weeks for the Arks in their last 
ditch try for a bid to the national 
juco tournament. Coach "Bunt" 
Speer's charges must win all four 
games if the hope for entry is to be 
kept alive. 

The Tigers last top foe of the 
Western Conference, Garden City, 
stands directly in the path to the bid. 
Tile Broncs edged the Speermen in a 
tight contest last week for a scanty 
three-point victory. Should the Broncs 
from the west be beaten Saturday 
there is a good chance that an invite 
might be extended despite the league 
records, if Garden lost another con- 
test it would be almost automatic. 

The Orange and Black travels to 
Parsons to meet that leader of the 
Eastern division Feb. 18. Parsons 
boasts the highest scorer in the state 
in Bill Mawhiney, who has something 
like a 26-point average. 

Two other teams, Coffeyville and 
Independence, will comprise the 
opposition for the remainder of the 
time, each of which has dropped a 
previous game to the Bengals. Neither 
five was swamped and can be expected 
to put up a battle for a revenge

Bengals Blast 
Beavers With 
25-point Win 

IJlazing hot, the Tigers roared do'vn 
the court Tuesday night to hand the 
Pratt Beavers a basketball lesson, and 
clinch their hold on third place in the 
Western Conference. The victory set 
the stage for a royal battle for second 
high honors, Saturday night, with the 
Broncs of Garden City. 

The score was the highest of the 
year for the Bengals, who led at half- 
time 41 to 23. A total ordinarily res- 
pectable for the entire game. 

Ail members of the team showed 
exceptional form, particularly Bill 
Bartholomew, a longtime defensive 
star, who turned in his most outstand- 
ing scoring performance of the sea- 
son by finding the hoop for 17 
counters. Rangy Bill Clay copped the 
scoring high for the evening, however, 
with eight field goals and six frees 
loi- a 22 point total. 

Lettermen — and the PTA are 
jointly sponsoring a benefit program 
ol basketball to be held soon. Ihe 
athletes are trjing to raise enough 
neigh to p<jy ior sweaters for grad- 
uating membrrs. while tiie PTA plqns 
to use its share on social functions. 
Billed as a two game attraction it 
will test the merits of two city league 
entrys against the Tiger "B" and 
"A" squads. The "Bees" meet the 
VFW in the opener aid the regular 
five sees action opposite Miller's, a 
top citv entry. 

E.G. QUIGLEY— Kansas University 
athletic director and nationally known 
sports figure, has commented at length 
on proposed changes in the rules of 
basketball. Reformers have joyously 
proposed that the three-second zone 
across the foul line be eliminated as 
far as players without the ball were 
concerned, having it in operation 
only when the invader possess s the 
sphere. The group also advocates a 
six-foul rule to enable "better players" 
to remain a longer period. 

AGREED — with Quigley, who says 
the theoretical changes would only 
make bad things worse, we certainly 
feel an additional foul would not speed 
the game but induce sloppy play. 
Players attaching less importance to 
the foul would only bring more 
whistle-tooting and game stoppages. 
Elimination of the foul zone is pre- 
posterous, as that vital sector would 
be even more clogged than it is now. 
"Goons" under that system would 
have even a greater advantage. 

PERHAPS— a better idea would be 
a standard interpretation of the rules, 
so as to eliminate all controversy on 
the sticklers that confront the team 
that plays in different sections of the 
country and meets vast differences in 
foul calling.

Tigers Fall After 
Stunning Defeats 

The Ark City Tigers squad dropped 
from first to third place in league 
standings last week-end, after being 
swamped for the second time in as 
many weeks by Dodge City, and 
losing a close one to Garden City 
despite a final surge. 

The crucial trip pitted two of 
the state's top teams against the 
locals in the drive to aquire th"ir 
share of the conference honors. 
Against Dodge the Arks simply did 
not have it. The high-flying West- 
erners outshot and outplayed the 
local five, while holding Clay, high 
scorer, to but four points despite 
Berry and Rutter's nine apiece. 

Garden was a different story. Try- 
from their western swing and an out- 
ing desperately to salvage a victory 


Bengals Rebound 
After League Loss 

In the wild conference scramble for 
title honors the Speermen lost, then 
regained, the lead as the month of 
January went out and February rolled 

Dodge City ended the unbeaten lea- 
gue record of the Bengals with a 53 
to 39 pasting on the home court, Jan- 
uary 29, to temporarily take over 
sole possession of the top'spot. A close 
game until the loss of ""the Ark's 
stellar center, Bill Clay, the juco's led 
at the half 25 to 23 and were behind 
but one point at the exit of the pivot- 
man. But from then on the Tigers 
proved erractic, muffing passes, and 
muffing passes, and loosing faulty 
shots over the tight Conq zone. 

Starting well Clay, Bartholomw, 
and Rutter all found the range but 
the Dodge five soon retaliated as 
diminutive Gene Taylor caught fire. 
The second half was dominated by the 
team from the West. 

The juco Tigers salvaged a tie with 
Dodge City for first place., February 
2, by nosing out the always dangerous 
Hutchinson Blue Dragons 48 to 45 
in a bang-up ball game. Sparked by 
Lyle Rutter, guard, Joe Berry, for- 
ward, the local quintet bounced back 
from the Dodge defeat and again 
served notice of their championship 

Long and lanky Bill Clay failed to 
hit with his usual accuracy, but the 
scoring duties were amply taken over 
by Rutter's eighteen counters with 
Berry sinking 15. Although hitting 
but two baskets, Clay supplied the 
hand-offs as the Tigers utilized their 
scoring plays for easy shots. 

The Dragons scored first but the 
Arks soon took over the lead not to 
be headed again until mid-way in 
the second half. Then the score 
changed hands five times, the Orange 
and Black on top a" the buzzer 
Coach Bunt S leer used an iron-man 
five the entire game, making no sub- 

chance at the title the Bengals made 
a tight game of it until the final 
buzzer. Though the Broncs repeated- 
ly pulled away to big leads the Tigers 
hung on to tie the score twice "in the 
second half. And were only three 
points down at the games end 43-40. 
Bartholomew and Bailey were both 
fouled out of the fracas, Bart leav- 
ing early in the second half. 

Garden City went in at the half- 
time with a 23 to 18 advantage and 
Clay returned to form to annev high 
honors of the game, sinking twelve 
points in a losing cause.

Garden City Tops 
Arks By A Point 

An inspired last-half rally dropped 
just one point sh rt of 1 ho mar ;, r'eb. 
12, as the Garden City L rones nosed 
out a fighting r I iger quintet, 45-44, 
in a contest crammed wLh thrills. 

Behind 14 points at tl.e half, and 
with seemingly no chance at making 
a game of it, the jucos came roaring 
back with a hustling all-cver defense 
that limited the Eroncs to five field 
goals the entire period. The Arks then 
took over the lead and wi.h time fast 
waning, looked to h. ve th ! game won. 

But the visitors grabled the boll 
out-of-bounds their basket, and with 
but three seconds loft, fired a pass, 
anil a quick pivot by the lanky Keller 
sewed up the affa'r as the Tigers 
didn't have a char.L.; to put the ball 
Lack into play. 

Keller's last goal, and others, gave 
him a 19 point total and the high 
scoring honors for the evening. Berry 
was high for the Arks With 14, closely 
followed by Rutter's 13 counters. The 
loss virtually eliminated the locals 
from post-season consideration.

Clinic Hits 
80 Pint Goal 

Arkansas City's fifth blood donor 
clinic held March 3 and sponsored by 
the junior college, operated smoothly 
and efficiently to provide their set 
quota of 80 pints of blood, donated 
almost entirely by junior college stu- 
dents and faculty members. 

The Red Cross mobile blood bank 
was situated in the basement of the 
First Presbyterian Church and wa^ 
conducted from 10:30 a.m. until 3:00 
p.m. Student donors were amazed at 
the efficient.clocklike procedure in 
which the Red Cross workers con- 
c ucttd their clinic. A tasty steak 
dinm r was served to each donor fol- 
lowing his contribution. George Stan- 
ley, student blood chairman and col- 
lege freshman, was in charge of the 
recruitment. He was assisted by juco 
students 1 hil Ayres ,who furnished 
transportation for the donors to and 
from the clinic, and by Edna Robson 
and Dorothy Haslett, who were in 
charge of publicity. 

Mrs. E. T. Lindsay, donor recruiter 
for the local Red Cross chapter, com- 
mented on the cooperation of the stu- 
dent body: "I was ^ery well pleased 
to see how well the students were 
confirming their appointments and 
minimizing the delay of processing " 

Miss Mary Sue Berchaw, general 
field blood representative of tne mid- 
w stern area stated that she found 
the Arkansas City students umtsnaPy 
i ali y, and complimented the junior 
college on the smoothness and effici- 
ency of organization with which this 
c.inic was conducted.

The Basement Buzz 

One of this junior college's most 
successful basketball teams has ended 
its regular season. It has produced 
more wins than any other squad for 
long- r than it is comfortable to re- 

But in what might be considered 
even more important than the win- 
ning season, the sportsmanship that 
has been displayed has been of top- 
drawer quality. 

It is regretable that this is a point 
worthy of special mention and praise, 
but in these days of persistent flare- 
ups such conduct seems notable. 

Orchids, then, are in order to the 
Tiger team — and to all those behind 
it, They have done a good job. 

And deserved tribute should be 
given in special notation to the one 
man most responsible for both the 
sparkling victorys, and the teaching of 
good sportsmanship. 

He is a man that has often been 
over-looked — when it came to hand- 
ing out bouquets for a job well done. 
Yet, he has neaily always been the 
deciding factor between success and 

For no matter how his teams fare 
in the future, and no matter what 
material he will have to work with — 
they'll be in good hands with — W.G. 
"Bunt" Speer. 

Dean Galle Attends 
Chicago School 

Dean K.R. Galle attended the 
National Secondary School of Admini- 
strators at Chicago from February 2fi 
to March 2. 

With approximately 700 admini- 
strators from across the nation pre- 
sent, the conclave consisted of lectures, 
discussion groups, tours, and other 
interesting educational highlights. 

Mr. Galle attended several discus- 
sion groups, dealing primarily with 
junior college administration and new 
trends of junior college education. 


Assigned the difficult task of glean- 
ing some printable "buzz" for this 
column, your aspiring reporter hope- 
fully offers the following drones for 
your reading pleasure: 

A delegation from the junior college 
visited the Freedom Train while the 
kcomotive was here, and immediately 
the group was approached by a Trave- 
ler photographer, who wanted to take 
a picture — of Lie girls! P. M. Johnson 
w as the only male member of the 
group to get into the picture, but he 
refused to exhibit any "cheesecake" 
for tfte press. 


Then there was the one about the 
rtd-faced Tiger basketball player at 
Parsons. Trying to make a few points

eager approached a blond lovely with 
hopes of starting a long and beautiful 
friendship. After proposing a 10 
o'clock rendezvous after the game, 
thft blonde replied, "Well, I'll have to 
aslje my husband to get someone to 
stay with the children". 


Although Mr. Day's brief absence 
affauded a nice vacation for students 
taking his classes, all are glad to see 
him back again after recovering from 
a sore throat. Many students are jok-

Ping pong enthusiasts greatly appre- 
ciate the new surface on the club room 
table. It is hoped that players will help 
keep the table in good shape, as the 
second annual spring tournament i ; 
not too far off. 

The new club room records are quite 
an improvement over the old set, 
which included such all-time hits as 
"Lonely Little Petunia" and "Blue 
Guitar Stomp."

Blood Drive Assembly 

Members of the local Red Cross 
chapter and representatives of the 
student body campaigned for blood 
donations at an assembly February 23. 
The speaker, Mrs. A.B. Gray, volun- 
teer worker for the public information 
division of the Red Cross, was intro- 
duced to the students by the blood 
drive chairmam, Lee Cii'cle. Mrs. 
Gray's talk, "Blood is life," denoted 
the importance of contributing blood 
for this drive. 

A film, "Volunteer 5420." was also

Juco Credits Are Transferable, Grads Find 

Local Survey Reveals 
Nonacceptability Fears 
Are Groundless 

Junior College credits not accepted 
at other colleges? All this labor for 
naught? That's what some hearsay 
around these halls used to be, but the 
malicious rumors were finally put to 
rest by active and alert Tiger Tale 
staff members. 

Fifteen former students of the junior 
college from the classes of 1932 to 
1948 were selected at random and in- 
terviewed to determine the validity of 
credits received at ACJC. Graduates 
in all courses, business, pre-med, liber- 
al arts, and others made the transition 
without any trouble whatsoever, they 
indicated, whenever work was of ac- 
ceptable quality and the student con- 
tinued in the same field of study. 

"I received credit for every hour 
that I had acquired in junior college," 
stated Earl Newman, c'32. "Altogether 
I transferred 60 hours, and had no 
trouble whatsoever i' 1 receiving full 
credit for them at KU." 

"All of my academic credits were ac- 
cepted by uie University of Kansas," 
remarked D-. Edwin Maier. local phy- 
sician, c '34. "And in fact, I received 
credit for more actual hours than I 
tiiought I had coming." 

Donald Patterson, c'34, was partic- 
ularly happy: "I was graduated from 
the junor college with 08 hours credit," 
he said. "1 hadn't had physical edu- 
cation and of course 60 hours only 
were accepted toward a degree, but 
even after that, I found they had still 
given me credit for physical education. 
'i nose hours were transferred without 
the least bit of trouble." 

Apply Toward Degree 

A recent graduate, Kod.iey Wils n, 
c'48, entered Emporia State Teachers 
Lcllege w ith 66 hours of junior college: 
credit. Of these only 60 hours, plus 
pnysical education credit, were ac- 
cepted toward a bachelor's degree. 
"Ail grades, however, were registered 
the same as I made them here," 
Wilson pointed out. _ 

Mrs. Emily Jane Yount Miller wrote 
at length in reply to the reporter's 
questions: "At the University of Kan- 
sas I was given only a total of 60 se- 
mester hours credit of freshman-soph- 
omore level toward the total of 124 
hours required for graduation. Four 
hours were deducted generally from 
total credits, but not from any specific 
courses or subjects. This was the result 
of their policy to not accept more than 
60 hours transfer credit from any coll- 
ege for two year's work. 

Mrs. Miller is presently enrolled in 

the Graduate School of Northwetern 
University where she's been working 
toward the degree of Doctor of Phil- 
osophy in the School of Speech for the 
last two years. Upon applying for 
entrance there, her undergraduate 
work taken at Arkansas City Junior 
College and Kansas University was 
accepted at its face value. 

Presently a student at the Univer- 
sity of Oklahoma, Earnest Taton, c'48, 
commented that "58 hours of junior 
college credits were acknowledged and 
grade points transferred at a 1.2 avei'- 

Accepted with Scholarship 

"As far as I remember now, my 
junior college credits were accepted," 
stated Mrs. Vergie Mae Bryant Buch- 
ele, c' 35. "At least 1 was admitted to 
the school of business as a junior and 
was graduated from KU two years 
later with a degree in business admin- 
istration. I had to take no courses in 
KU for makeup work, or "no credit," 
as is sometimes required if the grades 
earned in junior college are too low. If 
the courses are in the desired field and 
grades passing and high enough, KU 
accepts work done in junior colleges at 
their full value." 

Eugene Cornish, managing editor 
of the Garden City Daily Telegram, c' 
34 was emphatic: "All ot my Ai'Kansas 
City juco credits were accepted with- 
out question at the University of Chic- 
ago on a scnolarship basis when I tran- 
sferred there as a junior. 1 went on to 
get my master's degree in business 

"All of my junior college credits 
were accepted at full value at the 
University of Southern California," 
said Donald Hickman, local attorney 

Speech Hours Satisfactory 

Dr. Jess Ruf, veterinarian, c'48 was 
a lone exception. "I had to begin again 
as a sophrmore at K; nsas State ar r 
completing" junior college," Dr. Ruf 
: aid. "Hov ever, I had a few more 
hours credit than other sophomores 
\vh i began c liege at Kansas State. It 
stems tha^ the professional schools 
si metimes cut yotlr hours more because. 
the junior college can't give you all 
that is required for certain fields of 

Ray Sandefur, Iowa City, Iowa, e'24, 
found that of 64 semester hours earn- 
ed at ACJC, 60 were accepted toward 
a degree by Emporia State Teachers 
college. The remaining four were not 
counted toward the 120 hours required 
for a maximum transferable from a 
junior college at that time was 60 

"After my graduation from Empor- 
ia," he added, "I had all my credits 
accepted without question by the 
Graduate School of the University of 

"After receiving my master's degree 
from Colorado, I again had all my 

undergraduate credits accepted by the 
State University of Iowa's Graduate 
School. Incidentally, in my doctoral 
program I indicated as part of my 
speech background as an undergrad- 
uate, the speech courses I had taken 
at ACJC. Those hours were accepted 
as satisfactory." 

"Following my graduation from jun- 
ior college, all of my credits, with the 
exception of typing, were accepted 
by Ottawa University," Mrs. Mary 
Holman Stowell, Monmouth, Oregon, 
c' 39. wrote reporters. 

Sixty Hours Transferred 

Mrs. Madge Sneller Krause, Plains, 
Kansas housewife, c' 42, had the usual 
experience: "When I was graduated 
from Arkansas City junior college and 
transferred to Kansas State Teachers' 
College at Pittsburg, 60 of my juco 
credit hours were accepted toward 

Mrs. Marcalee Ferguson Robe, 525

Dean Slates Findings 

Apprised of the findings of staff 
investigations, Dean K. R. Galle evin- 
ced no surprise. The facts tallied with 
his experience in recommending hun- 
dreds of students to other institutions. 

"I am glad that the Tiger Tales 
staff made this investigation," he 
said. "It reveals very clearly, on the 
basis of first hand information, what 
may be expected in regard to junior 
college credits. 

"Whenever an individual states that 
he or she has had credit transfer dif- 
ficulties, as a rule, an investigation 
will reveal one or two irregularities in 
the students junior college record. The 
first difficutly may be low grades. A 
student with at lea«t a "C" average 
will experience little transfer diffi- 
culty, provided a second condition has 
been met, namely, that the courses 
required for a degree or training- 
objective sought by the student have 
been included in his program of 
studies. While in such cases, the 
student really does not lose credit, 
required courses not taken during the 
first two years, must be included in 
the program of the last two years. 
So it is very important that a student 
familiarize himself with the require- 
ments of his training objective. And 
bear in mind that the requirements 
may not be exactly the same in two 
different schools. Select your final 
school as early as possible, become 
familiar with its requirements, and 
then plan your junior college program 

"Students who have planned wisely 
and then do a grade of work in junior 
college, will have very few difficulties 
in transferring credit." 




Tigers Get Long Awaited 
Bid to National Regionals, 
Nebraska Five Withdraws 

Speermen Leave Early Wednesday for Qualifying 
Round with Touted Kansas City Team at Seven; 
Two Finalists to Go To National Juco Tourney 

The Arkansas City Tigers accepted 
a long awaited invitation to the Nat- 
ional Junior College Regional Tourna- 
ment, late Monday afternoon. The 
tourney was scheduled to get under- 
way last night at seven o'clock wjth 
the Arks leaving Wednesday morning 
to go against a strong Kansas City 
juco team. 

The Tigers have their strongest 
team in years, but had given up hope 
of attending after losses to Dodge 
City and Garden City. Nebraska teams 
previously asked, however, were un- 
able to come, and on the basis of their 
line record and recent wins, the local 
five received the nod to fill out the 
ten-team bracket. 

After accepting the offer to play 
in the juco meet, Coach "Bunt Speer" 
withdrew his team from the Kansas 
AAU tournament, held in Wichita. The 
Tigers were to have played the Kiowa 
Jewelers Tuesday night. 

The juco dribble derby is the big 
affair in mid-western circles with the 
winners garnering an all-expenses- 
paid trip to the National Tournament, 
held at Hutchinson, Kansas, from 

March 22 through the 26th. 

Should the Arks win their prelim- 
inary elimination round against the 
K.C. Blue Devils, they will meet the 
Missouri Baptists from Poplar Bluff, 
Missouri, at 1:30 today. 

The pairings have been divided into 
two brackets for the four-day play- 
offs, and both fives qualifying for the 
finals of the regionals will be eligible 
to compete as Kansas 
of region six to the national.

Many Out For Track Team, 
But Tennis Squad Needs Men 

Spring is here! Workouts, the per- 
ennial indicators, are already under- 
way for the juco's two major spring 
sports, track and tennis. 

Coach Ray Judd's defending state 
champion racket-swingers are ham- 
pered somewhat, as most members 
are also members of the basketball 
squad, but early sessions are on the 
agenda at the final buzzer of the post- 
season game. 

In the meantime, the Tiger track- 
men have begun jogging the Curry 
Field oval and going through the pre- 
liminary exercises. The thinclads are 
trying to whip into shape faster this 
season, in order to schedule some of 
the earlier meets. 

Both of the teams face tough com- 
petition this year with nearly all jucos 
reporting some strength in the two 
sports. The tennis team, particularly, 
has lost several of the better men of 

last year, although Bill Clay, number 
one swinger, is again back. Strong 
support is expected, however, from 
letterman Bob Sneller, who is the 
only returning eligible player besides 
Clay. Frosh players up from the high 
school are Bailey and Bartholomew. 

For the cindermen, Coach "Bunt" 
Speer has Erwin Work, Doyle Gil- 
strap, Joe Berry, Dave Hearne, Mar- 
vin Wilhite, Elmer Morris, and Bill 
Gardner as lettermen and promising 
freshman in Murray Boyles, Bill 
Morris, Wayne Peters, John S*hueh- 
man, Warren Isom, Bob Holloway, 
and others. 

Still more men are needed to round 
out well-balanced teams in all events. 
Coaches Speer and Judd have issued 
a call for all able-bodied males to

Bengals Sock 
El Dorado By 
55-33 Count 

Effectively closing the lid on the 
league season, the Tigers of '49 hung 
victory number 16 on the hook, and 
sewed up third place in the conference 
standings by erasing out-manned El 
Dorado, 55 to 33. 

The cellar-dwelling Grizzlies failed 
to win a single league contest. 

Starting fast, the Arks soon jumped 
into the lead and piled up an insur- 
mountable 30 to 19 margin at half- 
time. Paced by their all-star center, 
Bill "Spider" Clay, the Bengals hit 
from all angles, unveiling a roaring 
fast break that flashed in for several 
easy buckets. 

Bonnell, highly touted Grizzlie 
scorer, was held in check by Clay and 
counted but 11 points, while the local 
pivoter sank 23 for his third con- 
secutive twenty point performance. 

Coach Speer suited up twelve men 
and used them all. Starters were Clay, 
Berry, Thiesen, Rutter, and Bartho- 


Day of Prayer Is 
Observed in Chapel 

An assembly in observance of the 
World Brotherhood of Prayer was 
held in the junior high auditorium 
March 4, with the general theme be- 
ing, "The Lord is Thy Keeper." 

Dave Hearne was in charge of the 
program and introduced Phil Parker, 
who led the group in several religious 
songs. Marjorie Ghramm, Royce Mak- 
in, Helen Leach, Edna Robson, and 
Waunita Hite led the student body 
in prayer. A juco girls' sextette com- 
posed of Mary Pudden, Janell Estep, 
Norma Baker, Virginia Banks, Treva 
Harrison, and Marjorie Ghramm sang 
and Bill Gemar closed the program 
with two solos.

table complete, the fastest tourney yet 
held is expected with a large field of 
table tennis artists competing for the 

An entry fee ot ten cents will again 
be taken to defray tjurnament expen- 
ses and to purchase prizes. All college 
students, who wish to enter, male or 
female, are asked to have their dimes 
ready early next week when tourney 
eomm.tteemen collect names for the 

The big singles event was won last 
year by "Whitey" Falls, who will be 
favored to repeat this spring. Strong 
competition is expected, however, from 
Gerald Gregory, Bob Sneller, and 

It is hoped that an all-girls tourna- 
ment, a doubles tourney, and a mixed 
doubles affair can be held before the 
end of the semester. 

The cooperation of everyone is ask- 
ed in making the spring tournament 
the best ever held.

Metcalfe Appears 
In Juco Assembly 

An interesting and educational 
lecture on world affairs was given by 
the famous journalist, John C. Met- 
calfe, before the college assembly, 
March 14. 

Mrs. Metcalfe, former Washington 
diplomatic correspondent for Time 
magazine and the New York Herald 
Tribune, spoke of his experiences in- 
side Germany and discussed his views 
on the international problem of peace. 

"The whole world is haunted by the 
fear of war", commented Mrs. Met- 
calfe in his address. He added, "The 
chances against war — not the chances 
for peace — still are superior." 

Mr. Metcalfe concluded his lecture 
with this ad\ice for the United States, 
"It is well and good to debate all 
cur issues, all our projected policies. 
But once we have reached the decision, 
iet us Ptand united as one greai voice 
for freedom, justice and peace. And, 
above all, let us leave our domestic 
politices at our shores, or our whole 
foreign policy will crumble into dust!" 

Helen Owens President 

Helen Owens was elected president 
of the college Christian Association 
at a meeting held March 21. Other 
officers elected were John Maier, vice 
president; Helen Leach, secretary; and 
Lynden Howard, treasurer. 

The association also decided to con- 
tribute the following amounts to these 
world organizations: fifty dollars to 
the World Student Service Fund, ten 
dollars to the cancer fund; fifteen dol- 
lars to UNESCO; and ten dollars to 
the Red Cross.

The junior college forensics team 
placed high at the 13th annual foren- 
sics tournament, held at St. John's 
college Friday, March 11. 

The Arkansas City group competed 
with 17 other colleges from five states, 
and brought home four superior rank- 
ings. Robert Adams placed second in 
Bible readings; James Austin ranked 
third in declamation; and Royce Makin 
rated third in dramatic reading. Mar- 
garet Hollowell placed fifth in poetry 
reading, and Bill Gemar received an 
excellent rating in Bible reading, radio

Statistics Show The 
Past Cage Season 
Was The 'Best Yet' 

With tin- rapid approach of Sprint!.', 
another basketball season has become 
history. The L948-49 junior college cage 
season just completed will not soon be 
forgotten, as Coach Bunt Speer's 
charges romped to eighteen victories 
in twenty-six contests for the most im- 
pressive record in the school's history. 

The Tigers, who finished in fourth 
place in the big regional meet at Dodge 
City, also scored more points than any 
other local juco team ever poured 
through the hoops by racking up 1201 
points this season to their opponents' 
1055. The Arks averaged over 46 points 
per game to the opposition's 40. The 
most points scored in one game by the 
Bengals was 75 against Missouri 
Baptists in the regional tournament, 
and the season low for one game by 
the Speermen was 23 points at 
Coft'eyville. The most points scored 
against the Arks was 65 points racked 
up by Coffeyville in three overtime 
sessions in the third place finale at the 

The Tiger offense really began to roll 
towards the latter part of the season, 
and scores in the fifties and sixties 
were common. The Tigers were the 
highest scoring team in the regional 
meet. The Bengal defense was also a 
high point of the strong showing, with 
the best defensive display coming ag- 
ainst Independence and Parsons, who 
were both limited to 24 points by the 
local jucos. 

Big Bill Clay poured in 377 points, 
averaging 14.5 points per game, to 
set a new individual mark. Clay tall- 
ied 28 points in one game and scored 
18 or more points in a game on nine 

The Tigers only lost two games here 
all season, one a heart-breaker to the 
potent Garden City Busters on a last- 
second field goal. 

Lyle Rutter and Joe Berry tied for 
runner-up individual honors with 216 
points each. Bill Bartholomew was 
close behind with 204 points, and Don 
Winslow was fifth with 89 tallies.

to be a home economics teacher. 
Marilea likes to sew and do as little 
as possible otherwise. "My favorite

She plans to continue school after

Coach Speer remarked that two of 
his key men were sick. For five days 
now they had been heaving the javelin.

Meet Mr. Ed 

The president of the sophomore class 
and favorite son of Silverdale for 1941 
is the object of this tale, namely Ral >h 
Jack Warren (Jack). He is better 
known to some as the Cowboy Casa- 
nova of junior college. This 6 foot, 2 
inch, 19-year-old hunk of brain and 
brawn has brown hair, brown eyes 
and weighs approximately 180 pounds. 

He was born in the Capital (Silver- 
dale) on October 25, 1929. His hobby 
is horses and he enjoys eating apple 
pie, and more apple pie. Jack attended 
the Ark City high school where he 
developed a liking for football, now 
his favorite sport. He has lettered 
both years as a tackle on the junior 
college team. 

Although his real amibition is a 
secret (to us anyway), he is studying 
to become a doctor. He plans to attend 
Kansas University after graduating 
from juco this spring. 




Juco Speech Class Prasents "Rosemary" 

Members of the "Rosemary" cast 
are: front row, left to right, Margaret 

Hollowell, Bob Majors and Helen 
Owens. Second row: left to right, Ken- 

neth Falls, Edna Robson, Newell Lar- 
son, David Hearne, Ed Hickey, Bob 
Adams, and Artie Metcalf. 

"Rosemary", the junior college pro- 
duction of an old English play, was 
veil received by a i<*rge audience 
Friday, March 18, in the junior hign 
auditorium. The pL.y was presented 
under the direction of Miss Pauline 
B. Sleeth, speech instructor. 

Peculiar lightning effects made the 
setting for the first act as the "shaz" 
had sheared a wheel. Miss Margaret 
Hollowell and Kenneth Falls were 
cast as the two who had eloped. Post- 
boy George was the ab'e Bob Adams, 
who was indeed helpful even through 
he was no scholar. Bob Majors, the 
second lover, was well case as Sir 
Jasper, who took the lovers into his 
home on good faith. Artie Metcalf 
was the obedient servant. 

Helen Owens and Ed Hickey com- 
prised the parents, who were in hot 
pursuit of the eloping pair, and found 
lodging in Sir Jasper's home also. 
Edna Robson was the maid who found 
it difficult to elude Bob Adams 
advances in one scene. Newell Larson 
tried desperately to keep Majors from 
falling in love with Margaret Hol- 

lowell. Wanda Joyce Childs took 
Katherine Stovers place who was ill 
and I ecame the wiie i f tie post-boy. 

Trouble v as averted however and 
the wedding proceeded as planned in 
London. Dave Hearne aged 90 climaxed 
the play with the scene 50 years after 
the original action when he recall' d 
with difficulty the gift of a spring 
of Rosemary from the bride-to-be. 

Royce Makin and George Stanley 
were the capable stage managers who 
were responsible for the efficiency of 
the sets and the art in the windows. 
Phil Parker, electrician, did a splendid 
job in the lighting effects. The light- 
ning was very good, as was the 
soliloguy in the final act. Helen Leach 
pnd Dorothy Vanskike had charge of 
the properties. Duane Palmer designed 
and printed the programs. 

The cast enjoyed a party following 
the play at the home of Mr. and Mrs. 
Bob Adams. A pin was presented to 
Miss Sleeth, who directed the comedy. 
She also received a carnation corsage. 

Seniors of the Cambridge and 
Burden high schools were guests at 
the play.

Speerman Nab 
Scoring Title 
Fourth Place 

The juco Tigers proved their mottle 
two weeks ago in the NJCAA region- 
al by advancing to fourth place in 
the meet after hope of even going at 
all had seemingly vanished. 

The Arks dropped two close ones 
but loomed as a major threat to title 
chances at all times. In the semi-finals 
the Dodge City Conks were extended 
to the limit before pulling out a nar- 
row eight-point victory in the final 

Lanky Bill (Spider) Clay sparked 
the Arks in their bid for an upset, 
and proved the most valuable player 
of (he playoffs, while set < inu new in- 
dividual highs in scoring. 

The Bengals made sensational tour- 
ney news in their first two games by 
eliminating a touted Kansas City team 
and then blasting the highly rated 
Baptists of Missouri, 75-50, for the 
largest score in the games played. 

The Black and Orange placed three 
men on the all-star team — equal to 
the amount placed by the champs 
themselves, Dodge City. Clay, Joe 
Berry, and Lyle Rutter all made the 
stellar squad. 

Coffeyville upset the locals in the 
consolation game for third place, drop- 
ping the Speermen after three (3) 
overtimes, 57-51. Dub Berry was hot- 
ter than a day in July to top the Ra- 
vens by dunking 30 points in the 55 
minutes played. 

The team had withdrawn from the 
AAU tourney at Wichita, Kansas, in 
order to enter the regionals.

BASKETBALL— has finally left the 
way clear for the return of the sea- 
sonal sports — but apparently some of 
the players wanted one last fling. At 
any rate, the box scores of the annual 
Grenola invite revealed a surprising 
number of jueo names — along with a 
few high school boys. 
TWO TEAMS — were made up almost 
entirely of cellar-dwellars — and true 
to the highest juco traditions, one of 
them (Central States) won the affair 
without a great deal of trouble. 
SPORTING— such names as Clay, 
Berry, Rutter, Gilstrap, and Bartholo- 
mew, they eliminated the school's 
other contribution to Ark City fame 
(Independents) in the quarter-finals 
— which was sparked by Sneller, Tho- 
mas, Chaplin, Gardner, Godfrey, John- 
son, and Greer — to mention a few. 
NOT TO BE— left out, Don Winslow, 
lone remaining member of the first 
five, joined a Geuda Team which got 
as far as the quarter-finals. 
FOCUSING — our attention again on 
the sports at hand, we find that a ra- 
ther stiff schedule faces both Tiger 
spring entries — and to start off both 
teams have scheduled early meets — 
perhaps in the theory that the early 
bird . . . .etc. 

SATURDAY— the Thinclads have a 
tentative date at Stillwater to engage 
in the A&M Relays — and Tuesday the 
Netmen have invited the Tonkawa 
swingers to come up for a breif get- 

With clearing skies and warmer 
weather in promise, plans are how 
under way for a new season in the 
track and field sport. After two weeks 
delay due to weather conditions be- 
yond control "Bunt" Speer, track 
coach, is looking forward to his first 
meets, scheduled to get moving in the 
next few weeks. 

Last year's squad compiled enviable 
records in their events that will be 
hard to match this, or any other, sea- 
on. Concentrating their strength m 
particular events, the cindermen of a 
year ago boasted a mile relay team 
which only finished less than first, 
and that at the state meet where it 
succeeded in winning third high state 

Besides the mile team, there were 
crack events men such as Vincent Wil- 
son, topflight pole-vaulter, Bud Chap- 
lin, also a vaulter and hurdles man, 
Joe Berry, hefty weight man, and 
many others. Of these reliable point- 
getters, only one will be able to com- 
pete this eason. Chaplin graduated, 
and though both Berry and Wilson 
are eligible for action as returning 
sophmores, a recurring back injury 
has made it doubtful that the dimi- 
nutive Wilson could enter. 

However on the brighter side ther? 
v> ill be a^iost a complete return from 
the flashy mile team, and some ab!e 
newcomers to not only fill the gap, 
Lut challenge the remaining runners. 
Those back are Erwin Work, Doyle Gil- 
strap, and Dave Hearne. All three 
double up in some other event or 
additional relay. 

The new stars entering the picture 
are Murray Boyles, speedy quarter- 
miler and a member of the high school 
state champion medley relay, Bill 
Morris, dusky dash man, Floyd Hin- 
son, promising newcomer, and Day- 
mond Mc Vay, fleet hurdler. 

And there will be others who prove 
the m elves worthy later on in the sea-

and slowly commands — "Runners — to

Gay Fiesta 
To Be Theme 
Of Tigerama 

A colorful fiesta theme has been 
revealed as the decoration motif for 
this year's Tigerama to be held 
Friday, April 22, in the auditorium- 
gymnasium. A large crowd of guests, 
students and alumni are expected to 
attend this affair which is the biggest 
social event of the college year. 

Decoration work is well underway 
according to Marjorie Ghramm, 
decoration chairman, with a host of 
i nusual plans in the making. 

Fhil Parker, general chairman of the 
social committee, is in charge of the 
program. Preparation of refreshments 
is under the direction of Ruth Ann 
Harvey, food chairman. 

Two more senior classes, D2xter 
and Grenola, have accepted the junior 
college's invitation to the affair. 
Arkansas City, Newkirk, and Cam- 
bridge high schools have also accepted. 

The student council and social com- 
mittee are working together to mak? 
this Tigerama a success. The help of 
the student body will be needed to 
decorate the auditorium-gymnasium 
the Wednesday and Thursday nights 
previous to the dance. . 

Herb Jimmerson's band will pro- 
vide the dance music. 

Council Advocates 

usic Programs 

The student council has recom- 
mended that the Civic Music programs 
for next year, should be included in 
the activity tickets. This action was 
taken at a meeting held March 23. 

Guy Ecroyd and Mrs. Sam Berry, 
committee representing the Civic 
Music Association, presented this 
opportunity for more culture through 
music. The regular price of a student 
ticket to the programs is $3.05. If 
included through activity tickets the 
price would be only $1 per semester. 

The concerts brought here f-r pro- 
grams cost approximatelv $400 each. 
There is a minimum of three per- 
formances a year. 

The project has been approved by 
the board of eduction.

Career Day- 
Is Planned 
For Students 

A "career day" will soon be set 
aside for the students of the junior 
college and senior high school. Under 
the sponsorship of the junior college 
faculty, with J. Kelsey Day as chair- 
man, the program has already got 
under way with the completion of 
career survey forms which have been 
filled out by all students of the col- 
lege and high school seniors. 

Dr. William A. Black of Pittsburg 
State Teacher's College, nationally 
known figure in the field of junior col- 
lege education, will be here during the 
second or third week of May. He will 
address students in a main assembly 
after which there will be a chance for 
students to attend conferences on the 
vocations in which they are interested. 

With the information from the sur- 
vey classifications in mind, a sched- 
ule will be set up. Experienced people 
in these fields will meet with the stu- 
dents who are interested in these vo- 
cations. Thy will talk with them con- 
cerning the necessary training, qual- 
ifications, problems, conditions in the 
field, and the possibility of success. 

Object of the survey is to help stu- 
dents select a vocation which has some 
possibility of yielding happiness and 
good living. It will also guide the col- 
ledge in their curriculum making by se- 
lecting the courses so as to meet the 
needs of the students involved. 

Dates Are Announced 
For Grads Pictures 

Pictures of junior college graduates 
will be taken April 11, 1?. and 13 at 
the Cornish Studio. These pictures will 
be taken in the traditional cap and

They cried, saying, Crucify him, 
crucify him. 

—Luke 23:21 

Such cruel words 

For more than 19 centuries, the 
people of the world have lived, have 
sinned, have prayed, but have never 
been able to pay for their words 
"Crucify Him." 

In this Easter season, as never be- 
fore, everyone must remember the 
Christ who carried the cross for us- 
and remember that we, too, have a 
■ cross to carry. 

In today's world, everyone has a 
responsibilty to himself and others 
the responsibility of living happily, 
of sharing, of sacrificing, of under- 
standing, of believing, of receiving, 
£ nd of loving. And each of us has 
a debt to pay, a debt to the Father of 

Let's make this Easter a time to 
begin again, a time to learn to li"e

as receive. Let's try to square oi 11 "- 
seleves for the times we have said, 
"He is guilty, crucify him." 

"I said to a man who stood at the 
gate of the year: 'Give me a light 
that I may tread safely into the 
unknown,' and he replied, 'Go out 
into the darkness and put your hand 
of God. That shall be to you better 
than a light and safer than a known 
way.' So I went forth, and finding the 
hand of God, trod gladly into the 


Informal Social Held 
For Juco Students 

An informal social was held March 
30, in the college club rooms and 
adjoining girls' gym. About 40 stu- 
dents and faculty members were pre- 

Dancing, card playing and ping pong 
provided entertainment for those pre- 
sent. Refreshments were served. 

Phil Parker, chairman of the social 
committee, was in charge. 

Only seven more weeks of school 
remain. At the end of this period, all 
the sophomores will wind up their 
Arkansas City schooling. Many of the 
scphs have been together for fourteen 
years of school, while others have at- 
tended together sinee junior or senitr 
high days. It makes one a little sad 
when he looks back over the years and 
flunks of separating. 

For the sophomores, the high school 
class of 5 47, it marks the last step in a 
long journey. The grade school spell- 
ing bees with you and Jim always 
managing to get on the same side, 
then the thrill of being a "big boy" in 
junior high school. Then the high 
school activities, and now graduation 
from junior college. The guys you play- 
ed football and basketball with, the 
plays, the first date, and the first for- 
mal are all memories now. From now 
on you'll be away from home, meeting 
new associates, preparing for a future 
that is now almost a reality. 

During the recent cold snap, scant- 
ily-clad members of the track squad 
looked like an annual convention <~>f 
the Polar Bear Club at Curry Field. 

After learning that Bill Clay had 
won a "love game" at th° courts Joan 
Coulson hastened to Wilson Park to 
have a look at his opponent. She finally 
learned the meaning cf the tennis term. 

Coach Bunt Speer participated in a 
benefit basketball gaame last week 
against the junior high Pups. Prior 
to the opening tipoff, Bunt exclaimed; 
"I wish they'd start, I'm w^rn out tak- 
ing these practice shots." The faculty 
won the game, incidently, with the aid 
of frequent time-out periods in the lat- 
ter stages of play.

Meet Mr. Ed 

Mr. Ed. one Phil Ayres, is a 133 
pound, brown haired, blue eyed, "stick 
of dynamite" who keeps the juco halls 
reeling in jovial merriment. 

At the age of 18, Phil's hobbies are 
composed of music and women. Major- 
ing absolutely nothing, he must have 
taken to heart what Dr. Martin dis- 
cussed in his speech last week. 

Phil's likes and dislikes are very 
interesting. He likes women and cares 
very little for competition. 

Phil moved to Arkansas City soon 
after his eighth grade graduation in 
Ed Dorado and is a juco freshman at 
the present time. 

Phil plans to support Uncle Sam's 
-ause in August, at which time he will 
join the navy for three years. 

Bill Clay, Tiger sports star, is slated 
to finish his college career at Colorado

Three Juco 
Records Set 
By Cagemen 

A perual of junior college basket- 
ball records from the first Tigar cagers 
of 1922 up to date reveals many in- 
teresting facts and figures. It also 
shows that the 1948-49 juco squad set 
three new school records in the hoop 
sport, although other records believed 
to have been broken by the Speermen 
of last winter still remain intact. 

The 75 points scored by the Tigers in 
the regional meet at Dodge City in 
March against Missouri Baptist was 
not the highest offensive total for an 
ACJC team, as the 75-point mark has 
been exceeded on three occasions. In 
1929, Arkansas City Junior College set 
the all-time record for most points in 
a single game when they swamped 
Coffeyville on the local court by a fan- 
tastic 93 to 23 score. The Tigers of 
'26 and '46 each ran up 81-points in 
en the opposition. 

' Bill Clay's 28 points in the Missouri 
Baptist game has been exceeded by 
Wayne Howaid's 29 tallies, but Vogel 

[ and Layne are accredited with the hot- 
test single performance by a Bengal 
hoop star with 34 points in a contest. 

The lowest point output by a Bengal 
team in a game was in 1930 when 
Hutchinson trounced the Arks here 
|y a 32 to 7 margin. However, the 

!7 : ger drfsnsive record came in 1926 
\ hen a powerful Tiger team held 
Crffev He to a pair of free tosses to 

Kvin, 43-2! 

The local junior college won the 
state basketball championship in 1926 
and again in 1927. The '26 champs, 
c mposed of such stars as Weller, 
Hardy, Upson, Rlumley, R. McVichael, 
and Houston, allowed their opponents 

[ only 21 points per game for the 17- 
gaire season. 

The Tigers copped the state title a- 
g-in the following year in 1927, with 
R. Smith captaining a team of sophs 
back from the previous year's winners, 
along with Barr, Bend?r, Wise, G. Mc- 
Michaels, and M. White. , 

Despite the fine records compiled in 
the past, the current Tiger cagers will 
go down as one of the best ever to 
wear Orange and Black. Led by star 

[ center Bill Clay, the '48-49 Ark jucos 

I won more games (18) and scored mo'e 
points (1201) than any other Tiger 
team. Many avid s upporters of the old 
cage era when the Bengals romped to 
' two state titles will point to the fact 
that the current squads play more 
games than the teams of their time 
which accounts for the higher offens- 
ive total. However, on a ave' age of 
points-Per games played, the recent 
Speermen averaged over 46 tallies a 
game in 26 games to exceed any pre- 
vious offensive average. 

Two Former Jucos 
Manage To Keep 
'Heads Above Water' 

In a recent issue of the Daily Kan- 
san, University of Kansas paper, an 
interview with Gerald V. Fetterolf 
and his wife, Neda Jo, both who are 
former juco students, was published 
in an article on how veterans man- 
age to make ends meet and attend 
college, too. 

Gerald, now the city editor of the 
Daily Kansan, has things a little 
easier nowadays, according to the 
article. While attending the Arkansas 
City College he worked 38 hours a 
week and carried 20 semester hours. 
Jerry is a journalism senior at Kansas 

Neda Jo, Jerry's wife, is working 
at Watkin's hospital in Lawrence as 
a clerk and stenographer at $130 a 
month. The young couple together 
earn $250 a month. Peggy Jo, their 
20-month-old daughter stays with her 
grandmother during the day. 

Jerry served three years in the navy 
in both Pacific and Atlantic theaters 
of operation. He was discharged as 
a torpedoman's mate, second class, 
with five battle stars and the Philip- 
pine liberation ribbon. 

Grades of this brillant exception 
for the past three years have aver- 
aged 2.4. Being interested in journa- 
lism he plans to eo into newspaper 
work after his graduation in June. 

Gemar Will Head 
Speech Fraternity 

A chapter of the Phi Rho Pi, 
national junior college forensics fra- 
ternity, has been reinstated in the local 
college with Bill Germar elected to 
head the group. Helen Leach will 
serve as secretary. 

The Phi Rho Pi fraternity was 
organized here in 1934 for the foren- 
sics and debate enthusiasts and was an 
active fraternity until the war years 
when the forensics program was cur- 
tailed clue to lack of interest. 

The speech program has been 
revived, however, with students partic- 
ipating in several meets this year. Du^ 
to the strong support shown, the Phi 
Rho Pi chapter will be open to all 
students who have participated in two 
or more speech contests. 

The first meeting of the fraternity 
was held Tuesday, with another meet- 
ing scheduled for next week. The 
organization is planning to hold a 
"rush week" soon to present the 
fraternity's advantages to prospective 
members for next year. 

Speech Team 
Wins Honors 
At Juco Meet 

Eight members of the junior college 
forensic team chalked up an outstand- 
ing record at the state junior college 
meet held at El Dorado, March 25. 

The local contestants won five first 
places and five seconds in the ten 
events entered. 

First place winners were John Maier 
and Royce Makin in after-dinner speak- 
ing, Heler Leach in book review, and 
Robert Adams and Bill Himes in 
poetry reading, 

Second place awards were won by 
James Austin for oratorical declara- 
tion, by James Halcomb for book re- 
view, and Bill Hime and Royce Makin 
for story telling. 

The debate team composed of Royce 
Makin and Bill Gemar also won a 
second Place. 

Four junior colleges were repre- 
sented at the meet with approximately 
50 entrants competing. 

A. E. Maag, sponsor, accompanied 
the group.

Maet Miss Co-Ed 

If you happen to notice a pretty 
little girl with sparkling brown eyes, 
brown hair, and standing 5'6" in 
height, you'll know it can only be 
Jacqueline Crews. 

"Jackie" is a freshman this year, 
majoring in pre-med. Her hope is to 
be a laboratory technician after com- 
pleting her educational work at KU, 
following junior college. 

Since your reporter is not con- 
cerned with her future, but rather her 
near present, he finds that "Jackie" 
likes fried chicken and mashed pota- 
toes better than anything in the world, 
(in food that is!) Her favorite song is 
"Star Dust", and sewing is a hobby, 
she says.

A 165 pound student with gray eyes, 
fuzzy hair, of large stature and tower-

Schuchman, known to everyone as 
just "Johnny". 

"Johnny", a veteran who served 18 
months in the Army medical corps is a 
freshman this year majoring in liberal 
arts. His favorite sport, as anyone 
can guess, is football. 

John's favorite food is fried chicken 
while listening to Glen Miller's "In the 
Mood", and when not at college you'll 
find him at his favorite hobby, hunting 
and fishing.

Here it is only five weeks and one 
day to the glorious freedom of sum- 
mer. To some the ending of school 
will mean getting that sad feeling of 
leaving your friends and go to another 
college or to take that first step on 
the ladder of life, toward a future. 
While to others it will mean summer 
jobs and the old swimming hole. What- 
ever it means there is always the fact 
that this year has been a fruitul one, 
with football games, basketball games, 
socials, the Tigerama to remember, 
and last but not least the annual juco 
picnic coming soon. 

For most of us, life is what we make 
it; but for the pedestrian, it's if he 
makes it.

For the benefit of others who may 
be a little jittery about attending this 
gala prom, we are offering the fallow-

First, try to dress up for the occas- 
ion. Those je;ins may go great guns 
a- the Bob Wills hoe-down at New- 
kirk, but your escort would probably 
preter something dressier. 

It also makes the evening much 
more chummy for you and your escort 
if you can get together for a couple 
of dances during the course of the 
evening. Don't bring a girl to the 
dance, and upon seeing friend Johnnie 
go skipping off with the boys to ih^ 
locker room to try and hunt a basket- 
ball. Basketball season is over, and 
any pokes at the basket during the 
intermission would be entirely out of 

One of the main causes for worry 
among the male sex is the purchae of 
corsages. Please buy them, don't pick 
them yourself. Artificial flowers on 
the front of your date's formal may 
result in a few odd looks tossed your 
way and a few handouts from your 
buddies. Learn prior to the night of 
the dance what color formal your date 
is wearing and buy flowers to match. 
If a girl is donning red for the evening 
try to avoid scarlet floral bouquets. 
"Well, that should about set you for 
the big occasion. The main thing is 
lor everyone to join in and have a 
good time.

f Teachers Divided 
On Anti-Communist Measure 

Kansas has recently passed an anti- 
communist law. All public employees, 
those connected with public schools, 
universities, and colleges, police offi- 
cers, county and city officials, and 
state employees must sign an affi- 
davit stating that they are not, nor 
ever have been, members of the com- 
munist party. Supposedly the law is 
to be a loyalty check to determine 
the number of communists teaching 
or influencing Kansas students, or 
serving the public in other official 

A number of junior college instruct- 
ors were interviewed to find out what 
the "victims" of this law think about 
the anti -communist measure. 

"I'm willing to sign it," stated Dean 
K. R. Galle. "The purpose of the law 
is excellent, but I am doubtful as to 
the good it will achieve, except for 
the hold it will have on the individual 
if he is truthful. 

"I think it is a rather silly law," 
remarked P.M. Johnson, "but I'll be 
glad to sign it. The affidavit would 
provide some hold on the person who 
has declared himself loyal in that 
if he is discovered to be a communist 
party member, grounds for an indict- 
ment have already been laid." 

"As far as I'm concerned, I'm will- 
ing," replied Miss Virginia Weisger- 

ber. "It's a teacher's job to teach 
her students in the right way, and 
I think that democracy is the right 

"I think its all right, though semi- 
dictatorial," reported A. L. Curry. 

"I wouldn't mind signing the affi- 
davit. I think its a good idea," re- 
ported W. A. Sneller. 

"It seems rather useless to me, 
especially in Kansas," said J. K. Day. 
"I don't object to signing it, but who 
has any choice if he wishes to con- 
tinue teaching?" 

"I'm in favor of it," replied Miss 
Pauline Sleeth. "This is a free conutry, 
that's true, but why should it be so 
like free as to permit those to remain 
who would like to take away our free- 

"In" view of the admittedly destruc- 
tive aims of communism,. I believe 
loyal teachers would be willing to sign 
such a document," said Miss Anne 
Hawley, "but I doubt that it will be 
effective enough to be worthwhile, as 
disloyal persons would probably not 
hesitate to sign also." 

Barney Getto was very much in 
favor of the affidavit: 

"I think its a very good thing. Any- 
thing that will help to protect our 
government it all right with me. I'll 
be glad to sign it."

Five Records 
Set By Arks 
In Big Meet 

The host Hutchinson Blue Dragons 
won their own meet as they planned, 
last Friday, but the juco track squad 
stole the show by smashing- five of 
eight records that were broken in the 
day and night relays. 

Besides setting live new marks, the 
Tiger thinclads gathered up 49 points, 
which was good enough for second 
place and the runner-up trophy. 

In the point department Hutcninson 
had 75, and first place, Garden City 
was third with 27, while St. Johns of 
Winfield and Pratt JC followed with 
16 and 12 points, repectively. 

Erwin Work, dusky star of the Ben- 
gals, captured two firsts in the 100 
and 440 yard dashes, and finished the 
day by anchoring the winning mile 
relay team. Work set one of the new 
records in breaking the century mark 
with a time of 10.4. The previous 
record was 10.5, earlier held by Koontz 
of Hutchinson. 

Of the four relays run in the night 
the Arks won two and were runners-up 
in the other two. In winning both the 
mile and the medley, Coach Bunt 
Speer's runners chalked up two more 
records. The medley relav team of 
Morris, Boyles, Gilstrap, and Hinson 
clicked off the distace in 3:54.3 to 
break El Dorado's old mark. Hinson 
staged a final lap surge to win going 

The mile team repeated their win 
of lasted year and in doing so, snapped 
their own mark by nearly two seconds 
in the excellent time of 3:35.2. The 
three repeateds of last year, Gilstrap, 
Work, and Hearne, plus newcomer 
Hinson, were awarded the win after 
Hutchinson was disqualified for crowd- 
ing on the turn. The finish of the race 
was a dead heat. 

Joe Berry, juco weight man, broke 
his own record with a mighty heave 
in his shot put of 42' dV*" eclipsing 
the old mark by a foot and a half. 
Vincent Wilson, tied for first with 
Hunter of Pratt in the pole vault, also 
bettered his mark of last year by 
vaulting 11' 5" and a new meet record. 
Last year's height was also held by 
Bud Chaplin of Ark City. 

Other Tiger scorers were: Daymond 
Me Vay, third in the high jump; 
fourth in the javelin, and fourth in the 
high hurdles; Doyle Gilstrap, second 
in the low hurdles; Don Bohannon, 
third in the high and low hurdles; 
Marvin Wilhite, second in the mile 
run; 880 relay, second, (Gilstrap, 
Morris, Boyles, E. Morris;) 440 relay, 
second, (Morris, Gilstrap, Boyles, B.

shortly to be in action a quick look 
back will reveal that a lot of good 
marks must be made to do any record 
cracking. . .the meets has annually 
had a number of good men. . .and beat-

Tennis Good, 
Track Close, 
Golfers Lose 

Coach Ray Judd's rampaging net- 
men scored another in their series of 
lop-sided victories, April 12th, when 
they took Coffeyville's squad into 
camp by virtue of a 6-1 count. On 
the same day the track team was 
nosed out by the Ravens, 62-60, and 
the Tigers golfers tasted defeat on 
the foreign links. 

The Juddmen made it three in a 
row this year, and extended their 
undefeated dual record, which goes 
back to the same place in 1947, two 
years ago. The only loss suffered by 
the Arks was in the number two 
single match, with Bill Bailey drop- 
ping two tough sets. 

Bill Clay had his perfsct love-set 
record marred, but had no trouble in 
disposing of his opponent, 6-0. 6-2. 

At Ise Stadium the ci'id'rmen were 
nosed out by the Ravens in a close 
meet which saw the lead see-saw back 
and forth throughout the afternoon 
The running- events were all Ark City, 
however, with the exception of the 100 
and 200 yeard dashes. Times were not 
exceptional on the rain-soaked track.

garnered the lone victory.

Arriving in Arkansas City March 
8, 1929. at a very young age via the

been here ever since. Her home, 
parents, nationality and other vital 
statistic.--- have remained much the 
same, with the exception of her size 
which has increased proportionately to 
5' 7" and 120 pounds.. 

In an effort to improve their child 
prodigy, her parents trundled her 
off at the age of six to the Sacred 
Heart school where she spent her 
first eight years of hardships. After 
graduation ( ? ) she plans to attend 
Marquette University at Milwaukee, 
Wis., where she will major in jour-

account for her mania for tracking

Robert Lyle Borchers arrived on the 
scene, March 28. 1929. much to the 
surprise of his parents, for another 
son, Richard, had arrived only 15

After an intimate talk with this 
surprise development, this reporter 
learned that he has blond, wavy hair

and stands 6' 3" high. 

Bob is a sophomore and has always 
attended in Arkansas City schools. He

Dinner and

The junior college speech and lan-

national Banquet held in the Cadet 
Rcom of the Osage Hotel, April 26. 
Helen Owens and Robert Adams were 
acting hostess and host, respectively. 

After the blessing, expressed by 
Katherine Stover in German, Jacque- 
line and Carole Crews entertained the 
group with an orginal French dialogue. 
"Ma Normandie," a duet by Priscilla 
Laughlin And Mary Lawn on, was 
enjoyed following the meal. 

Two one-act plays were presented in 
English and Spanish, respectively, us-

Junior Ain't As

over the advantages' and disadvan-

in various civic clubs, organizations, 
and in other groups. Herein we are 
going to present our side of the quest- 

We believe that the comic book 
recieves too much unjustified blame. 
Everytime Junior splits open his 
little friend's head with a pickaxe the 
leaders of the community immediately 
conclude that the youngster was under 
a hypnotic spell after reading about 
his favorite hero, Captain Marvel, 
lower the boom on Putty-Face. They 
say that Junior is merely idolizing 
his hero and desires to cr^y his act- 

This tendency in youngstsrs to 
follow in their idol's footsteps also 
accounts for many broken limbs when

Married Veterans Experience 
Family Financial Problems 

Children constitute a problem 
especially to the married veteran as 
he attends school. His problems is how 
to be student, husband, father, and 
backbone of the family while living on 
the money afforded to him by the 

The G. I. allotment to a single 
veteran is $75 while a married veteran 
gets $105, Lnd if he is fortunate to 
have a little one he receives the addi- 
tional sum of $15. 

Several junior college veterans were 
interviewed as to the economic and 
studying problems of students with 

Robert Burton, post grad., has two 
children, Vicki Leigh, age three and 
cne-half years, and Robert Norman, 
age 18 months. Bob solves his study 
problem by getting his studies at 
school. In relation to the financial 

the kiddies next door try to fly off 
the garage a la Superman to haul 
down the mysterious space ship. 

Comic books have also been known 
to prove useful. A New York burg- 
lar wns trapped by a 12-year old 
bloodhcund who had learned the art 
of crime stopping from Dick Tracy. 
With his Dick Tracy Dandy Detec- 
tive Device, he brought the burglar to 

Most children realize that the ficti- 
tious stories they read in the funnies 
sre not really possible. The best 
example of the truly outlandish hap- 
penings of comic characters is in 
Lil' Abner where the handsome hero, 
Lil' Abner, refuses to warm towards 
the beautiful and appealing Daisy 
Mae. Even a kid can't fall foi that! 

worries he says that by being con- 
servative the money would cover half 
the expense of living, outside help is 
needed. The children are left with 
grandfather on several occasions thus 
eliminating the need for a hired baby 
sitter. Bob advises the young man with 
ideas to stay single until his edu- 
cation is completed. 

Charles Geoffrey, eight-month-old 
son of Robert Adams, sophomore, is 
causing some difficulty in the way of 
screaming while his father is getting 
a last minute assignment. The Adams' 
find that with the G. I. allotment plus 
outside part time work, they can 
make ends meet. When asked if he 
had any advise or young' couples, 
Robert said, "Heck no, we are still 
trying to get our own future straigh- 
tened out." 

Harold Keller, sophomore, with one 
daughter, Linda Kay, five years, says 
his allotment check will covet' expenses 
with help such as savings. 

Although not a father, and just 
recently a husband, Vincent Wilson is 
finding ways to conserve on the spen- 
ding of much needed money. One way 
is to work on a Saturday instead of 
going to the juco track meets. This 
way he can add seven dollars to the 
family budget. Also spending evenings 
at home studying saves the couple 
money and solves the study problem. 

With savings, outside part time 
work and with the wife working, the 
married veterans are meeting the 
crisis of the present and at the same 
time preparing for the future by get- 
ting an education. Through all of 
this they even find time to raise a 
family .

Ark Trackmen Swamp Relays, 
Go To State Meet Saturday 

The juco trackmen scored a smash- 
ing- victory at the annual Coffeyville 
Relays, Friday, breaking the tape in 
record time in both the mile and med- 
ley events. 

The Thinclads, coached by "Bunt" 
Speer, posted the new times in both 
events and lacked but.l second of tying 
a third in the 440-yd relay. The Tigers 
took home the mythical team champ- 
ionship of the affair, three challange, each for the second time, and 16 
individual medals, for their most swe- 
eping victory of the track season. 

Erwin Work, Floyd Hinson, and 
Doyle Gilstrap proved the main cogs 
of the Bengal squad with all three 
running in each of the record breakers. 
Work and Gilstrap also sparked the 
winning 440 team. 

Hinson clocked the best half of his 
freshman season in track, turning on 
the steam in the backstrech of the 
final lap to win going away with an 
unofficial time of 2:02 minutes for the 
two laps at Ise Field. 

After their best showing of the sea- 
son the Arks were given a slightly 
better outlook as to chances for honors 
in the state meet due to take place 
this Saturday at El Dorado. 

Hutchinson, not present at the 
Raven invitational, is expected to 
again outclass the field of entrys. The 
Dragon team is not expected to make 
a runaway of the meet, however, as 
they did last season. Competition has 
proved keener among a wider variety 
of schools this year, and many of the 
collegiate schools have talent enough 
to spread the points out over a scat- 
tered field. 

Ark City, Coffeyville, Independence, 
and Fort Scott have all shown strength 
in the mile relay events, half mile, and 
the dashes. At least three of these 
schools has added power in one of the 
field events.

To most people, tennis is just a 
matter of getting the little white 
ball back more times than your op- 
ponent does. That's right, that's all 
it is. One little detail, however, the 
ball must alight somewhere within 
the boundary lines, as a volley into 
the trees only results in a lost point 
and a DDT-drenched sphere. 



STATE MEETS— and their promise 
of reward and glory, always bring 
out the stiffest competition of the 
year. Teams all seem to have an added 
zing when the magic word "state" is 
mentioned — our own squad is not an 
exception. Trials and challenges have 
been the rule rather than the excep- 
tion, this week, and feverish clocking 
of races takes place each and every 
night of practice — why coaches get 

ERWIN WORK— proved again his 
worth at Ise Field, by turning in two 
of his fastest quarter times within a 
half-hour of each other. Work did 
his first round in 51.8, then 25 min- 
utes later made the turn again — time 
51.4. The lean and dusky flash cer- 
tainly lives up to his name. 
WELLINGTON— has lost another 
coach. John Floyd, nationally known 
former A&M basketball star, and 
Crusader mentor in that and other 
minor sports, handed in his lesigna- 
tion Tuesday. The Sumner county seat 
lost its football head just a week ago, 
when he accepted an offer for an iden- 
tical position with Southwestern Coll- 
ege at Winfield. Floyd said he had no 
"immediate plans". 

TUESDAY— was a great clay for all 

the baseball Robinsons. Jackie, Eddie, 
and Aaron each got a homer apiece. 
All in different games. 


Sprint Team Ccps 
Second at Relays 

Coach Bunt Speer's sprint-medley 
relay team delivered up to expecta- 
tions in the K U Relays, April 23rd, 
by finishing a close second in a fast 
field of nine junior colleges hailing 
from three states. 

Hutchinson won the event, and 
Coffeyville was third, while Ft. Scott 
finished fourth. 

The members of the team; Erwin 
Work, Doyle Gilstrap, Bill Morris, 
and Floyd Hinson all received large 
silver medals for their stellar efforts. 

Hutch Takes 
Victory From 
Ark Netted 


Ark City dropped its first match in 
junior college tennis play this year, 
when the Tiger netmen were handed a 
stunning defeat, Monday, on the 
Hutchinson courts, 4-2. 

Eill Clay, undefeated throughout the 
year, lost his first set and match the 
same day at the hands of Leroy Esau, 
Dragon net and basketball star. Clay 
found the chopping tactics of the 
former Buhler high school player too 
much to handle on the windy playing 
area. Three sets were needed to settle 
the bitterly fought match, with scores 
of 10-8, 3-6, and 8-6 going in favor 
of Esau. 

The Bengals had previously tied the 
Dragon crew in a match played on the 
Wilson Park courts, 3-3. The loss was 
the first in nearly two years of play 
for the Ray Judd coached team, which 
was undefeated last year. The swing- 
ers have one more dual meet with 
El Dorado before journeying to the 
state meet. 

Having won either the singles or 
doubles in state competition for the 
last three years, and both in '46, the 
local aggregation is accorded as good 
a chance this year, although Hutch 
is expected to hold the favored role. 

Bill Bailey and Bob Fry were beaten 
by almost identical scores in the 
number two and four singles tilts; 
Mercer triumphing over Bailey 6-2, 
4-6, 6-8. 

The only brightening aspect of the 
afternoon came for the Arks in the 
number one double match. Giay and 
Bailey teamed together to defeat the 
Hutch top combinaion of Mercer and 
Esau, after dropping the first set, 
2-6, 6-3, 7-5. The ace Tiger combo 
hasn't yet been beaten this year. In 
the other doubles Sneller and Fry 
extended Halman and Click to the fuil 
count -in each of the two sets but lost, 
7-5, and Click edging Fry 6-2, 8-6. 

The only singles victory taken by 
the Arks was in the number three en- 
counter, when Bob Sneller came from 
behind in the third and deciding set 
to win after being down 1-5. Sneller 
won five games in a row, dropped one, 
then picked off the final three, deter- 
mined not to be denied. 

During the last few weeks of school 
everyone is in a hurry. Time seems 
to fly as students try to find time 
for all the spring activities such as 
term papers and final examinations, 
to name a couple of time-taking 
chores. Due to these trying times, 
we hereby advise you not to proceed

dropped only one individual doubles 
match throughout the regular season 
and tournament this spring.

Ark Trackmen Swamp Relays, 
Go To State Meet Saturday 

The juco trackmen scored a smash- 
ing victory at the annual Coffeyville 
Relays, Friday, breaking the tape in 
record time in both the mile and med- 
ley events. 

The Thinclads, coached by "Bunt" 
Speer, posted the new times in both 
events and lacked but.l second of tying 
a third in the 440-yd relay. The Tigers 
took home the mythical team champ- 
ionship of the affair, three challange 
cups, each for the second time, and 16 
individual medals, for their most swe- 
eping victory of the track season. 

Erwin Work, Floyd Hinson, and 
Doyle Gilstrap proved the main cogs 
of the Bengal squad with all three 
running in each of the record breakers. 
Work and Gilstrap also sparked the 
winning 440 team. 

Hinson clocked the best half of his 
freshman season in track, turning on 
the steam in the backstrech of the 
final lap to win going away with an 
unofficial time of 2:02 minutes for the 
two laps at Ise Field. 

After their best showing of the sea- 
son the Arks were given a slightly 
better outlook as to chances for honors 
in the state meet due to take place 
this Saturday at El Dorado. 

Hutchinson, not present at the 
Raven invitational, is expected to 
again outclass the field of entrys. The 
Dragon team is not expected to make 
a runaway of the meet, however, as 
they did last season. Competition has 
proved keener among a wider variety 
of schools this year, and many of the 
collegiate schools have talent enough 
to spread the points out over a scat- 
tered field. 

Ark City, Coffeyville, Independence, 
and Fort Scott have all shown strength 
in the mile relay events, half mile, and 
the dashes. At least three of these 
schools has added power in one of the 
field events. 

440-yd. relay — (AC) — Morris, Boy- 
les, Gilstrap, Work — time-45.7 sec. re- 

Medley relay — (AC) — Morris, Gil- 
strap, Work, Hinson — time-3.42 min. 

880-yd. relay— Coffey, first: Inde- 
penence; Ark City (Boyles, Wilhite, 
Bohannon, E. Morris) third. 

Mile relay — (AC) — Gilstrap, Hearne 
Hinson, Work — t;im.>-3.34 min. (re-

To most people, tennis is just a 
matter of getting the little white 
ball back more times than your op- 
ponent does. That's right, that's all 
it is. One little detail, however, the 
ball must alight somewhere within 
the boundary lines, as a volley into 
the trees only results in a lost point 
and a DDT-drenched sphere. 



STATE MEETS— and their promise 
of reward and glory, always bring 
out the stiffest competition of the 
year. Teams all seem to have an added 
zing when the magic word "state" is 
mentioned — our own squad is not an 
exception. Trials and challenges have 
been the rule rather than the excep- 
tion, this week, and feverish clocking 
of races takes place each and every 
night of practice — why coaches get 

ERWIN WORK— proved again his 
worth at Ise Field, by turning in two 
of his fastest quarter times within a 
half-hour of each other. Work did 
his first round in 51.8, then 25 min- 
utes later made the turn again — time 
51.4. The lean and dusky flash cer- 
tainly lives up to his name. 
WELLINGTON— has lost another 
coach. John Floyd, nationally known 
former A&M basketball star, and 
Crusader mentor in that and other 
minor sports, handed in his lesigna- 
tion Tuesday. The Sumner county seat 
lost its football head just a week ago, 
when he accepted an offer for an iden- 
tical position with Southwestern Coll- 
ege at Winfield. Floyd said he had no 
"immediate plans". 

TUESDAY— was a great day for all 

the baseball Robinsons. Jackie, Eddie, 
and Aaron each got a homer apiece. 
All in different games. 

Sprint Team Ccps 
Second at Relays 

Coach Bunt Speer's sprint-medley 
relay team delivered up to expecta- 
tions in the K U Relays, April 23rd, 
by finishing a close second in a fast 
field of nine junior colleees hailing 
from three states. 

Hutchinson won the event, and 
Coffeyville was third, while Ft. Scott 
finished fourth. 

The members of the team; Erwin 
Work, Doyle Gilstrap, Bill Morris, 
and Floyd Hinson all received large 
silver medals for their stellar efforts. 

Hutch Takes 
Victory From 
Ark Netters 

Ark City dropped its first match in 
junior college tennis play this year, 
when the Tiger netmen were handed a 
stunning defeat, Monday, on the 
Hutchinson courts, 4-2. 

Eill Clay, undefeated throughout the 
year, lost his first set and match the 
same day at the hands of Leroy Esau, 
Dragon net and basketball star. Clay 
found the chopping tactics of the 
former Buhler high school player too 
much to handle on the windy playing 
area. Three sets were needed to settle 
the bitterly fought match, with scores 
of 10-8, 3-6, and 8-6 going in favor 
of Esau. 

The Bengals had previously tied the 
Dn.gon crew in a match played on the 
Wilson Park courts, 3-3. The loss was 
the first in nearly two years of play 
for the Ray Judd coached team, which 
was undefeated last year. The swing- 
ers have one more dual meet wilh 
El Dorado before journeying to the 
state meet. 

Having won either the singles or 
doubles in state competition for the 
last three years, and both in '46, the 
local aggregation is accorded as good 
a chance this year, although Hutch 
is expected to hold the favored role. 

Bill Bailey and Bob Fry were beaten 
by almost identical scores in the 
number two and four singles tilts; 
Mercer triumphing over Bailey 6-2, 
4-6, 6-8. 

The only brightening aspect of the 
afternoon came for the Arks in the 
number one double match, day and 
Bailey teamed together to defeat the 
Hutch top combinaion of Mercer and 
Esau, after dropping the first set, 
2-6, 6-3, 7-5. The ace Tiger combo 
hasn't yet been beaten this year. In 
the other doubles Sneller and Fry 
extended Halman and Click to the fuil 
count in each of the two sets but lost, 
7-5, and Click edging Fry 6-2, 8-6. 

The only singles victory taken by 
the Arks was in the number three en- 
counter, when Bob Sneller came from 
behind in the third and deciding set 
to win after being down 1-5. Sneller 
won five games in a row. dropped one, 
then picked off the final three, deter- 
mined not to be denied. 

During the last few weeks of school 
everyone is in a hurry. Time seems 
to fly as students try to find time 
for all the spring activities such as 
term papers and final examinations, 
to name a couple of time-taking 
chores. Due to these trying times, 
we hereby advise you not to proceed 
further and waste any more than 
necessary of these precious hours.

The Arkansas City Junior College 





Increase in 
Vets Fewer 

College enrollment is 220, as com- 
pared to 205 at this time last year. 
Dean K. R. Galle disclosed Monday. 
The number of G. I. 's enrolled has 
decreased from a one-time high of 
100 to 34, but this has. been offset 
by the number of transfers and the 
increase of out-of-town students, 
which number 35. 

Jucos may be surprised to discover 
that attending college here are stu- 
dents from 14 different towns, in- 
cluding Winfield, Milton, Oxford, 
Atlanta, Dexter, Caldwell, South 
Haven, Gueda Springs, Cedar Vale, 
Newkirk, Ponca City, dishing, and 

Course most pursued by students 
is the general or terminal, though 
many terminal students later decide 
to continue their education. 

Juco lads will sadly note the "de- 
plorable fact that there are 2V 2 boys 
to every girl, that out of 75 sophs, 
th re are only 27 gills, that out of 140 
f : esrhmi n there are only 44 girls. This 
is not only bid for the boys, but what 
girl wants Ms of a boy? 

Dean Calle predicts a steady in- 
crea e in enrollment due to the grad- 
ual decrease in jobs available, which 
will raise the average marriage age, 
the steady improvement of ACJC 
facilities, and the fuller realization 
of its major advantages of much lower 
coft to the student, greater individual 
attention, and an excellant faculty. 

"The o-> er-increasijig demand for 
college education for all types of jobs 
will have a tendency to increase en- 
rollment." Dean Galle said. He point- 
ed out that 45 percent of last year's 
sophomore class went on to a 4-year 
coile o- e. 

ACJC which was organized in 1922, 
had its highest enrollment immed- 
iately preceding the war, over 320. 


Betty Webb and Jane De Vore, 
freshmen, and Sue Stacy^ senior in 
Arkansas City high school., made up 
the Cowley c ounty judging team 
which placed third in the state 4-H 
meeting at Topeka on Sept. 13. They 
were competing against thirty teams. 

New instructor Helen Leach 

Elected Head 
Of Council 

Helen Leach is the now president 
of the student council. She was nom- 
inated by both the sophomore and 
freshman classes. The first freshman 
nominee, Bill Bartholomew, withdrew 
his name, and the freshman class 
substituted his runner-up, Helen 
Leach. This substitution made the 
usual run-off election unnecessary. 

Helen Leach, who was graduated 
from the local high school, seems to 
be an able person for the job of stu- 
dent council president. She has parti- 
cipated in the activities of several 
juco organizations such as the Christ- 
ian Association and the Tiger Action 
Club. She has also been active in de- 
bate and forensics. 

Other officers elected by the sopho- 
mores were N/orman Smyer, class 
president; Jeanine Womacks, vicef- 
president; Margaret Dore. secretary; 
and Jacqueline Crews and Jack 
Hughes, student council representa- 

Freshman officers elected were Bel- 
va Tipton, president; Winona Scott, 
vice-president; Caroline Hinsey, sec- 
retary; and Mildred Marrs and David 
Walker, student council representa- 

Miss Eleanor Berger 

Miss Eleanor Berger, who has taken 
over Miss Olive Moore's place in tne 
Home Economics department, was 
graduated from the Halstead High 
School, after which she entered the 
Kansas State College where she re- 
ceived her Bachelor of Science degree. 

Schwegler To Make 
Four Visits Here 

Dr. Raymond A. Schwegrler, a psy- 
chologist whose name is familiar to 
most juco students, will make four 
trips to Arkansas City this year. Dr. 
Schwegler has visited here for the 
past two years. 

He will lecture in assemblies and 
hold personal conferences with those 
desiring individual attention. He 
hopes to have time, this year, to com- 
plete all the private conferences with 
those seeking his guidance. 

Dr. Schwegler will devote his time 
to Arkansas City during the weeks of 
October 10 to 14, November 28 to 
December 2, February 6 to 10. and 
April 17 to 20. 

Dr. Schwegler, founder of the Ed- 
ucational Clinic at Kansas University, 
specializes in the analysis of emotional 
difficulties. Although he is now retired 
from his duties at Lawrence, he de- 
votes his time to helping young people 
adjust themselves emotionally.

New Hopes For 
College Building 

For those concerned with the fate 
of the money spent on bonds for the 
new junior college building, there will 
be a public meeting sometime within 
the next two months. 

This meeting, to be called by the 
board of education, will give those 
interested an opportunity to state 
their views and to hear repors by 
junior college faculty members on 
needed facilities of the new struc- 

A definite date has not been set, 
due to the many activities during the 
month of October. 


Snell, Pringle, Stanley 
Are Football Statisticians 

John Snell, Don Pringle. and Ken- 
neth Stanley volunteered to be the 
football statisticians this _year. Their 
job consists of going to all the games 
and putting down on paper various 
data such as number of touchdowns 
in the game, ykrds gained, yards 
lost, and other statistics concerning 
the happenings of he game. These 
statistics will be used for local, state 
and possibly national publicity. 

Tiger Action Club Members 
Swing Into Action 

Those sharp, white sweaters which 
are being sported by some of the stu- 
dents lately are the official sweater 
of the Tiger Action Club, the junior 
college pep club. 

Officers elected at a recent meeting- 
include Ardelia Reser, president; 
Mary Swearingen, vice - president; 
Mary Evelyn Paine, secretary; Jean 
Edwards, stunt chairman, with Do- 
lores Morton as assistant. 

TAC went into action at the Coffey- 
ville game on September 23. They 
operated the concession stand and 
had a good cheering section as well. 


Roy Smith was at the city library 
the other night, studying to the ut- 
most of his abilities, when his forehead 
began to get red and itch. A thorough 
search disclosed that the rash wasn't 
due to studying but rather Roy seemed 
to be allergic to the goldenrods that 
were in a bowl on the table.

John King, custodian, was calmly 
dusting when suddenly he saw some- 
thing scampering down the corridor. 
He hit the object with his duster, 
and then turning on the light, he and 
Raymond Judd examined what they 
believed to be a mouse or a rat. Upon

be a hamster that had gnawed out 
of it's cage in Jack Tryon's biology 
room. The poor hamster was knocked 
unconscious, but in a short time he 
recovered. At last report, he was in 

his cage again and resting well.

ceived $100 to be applied on his fees 
and other expenses when he won an 
annual state-wide essay contest spon- 
sored by the local chapter of the 
Women's Relief Corps last year. The 
essay topic was "Lincoln, My Ideal" 
and the contest was among seniors 
in the state high schools. 

Carl Ousley, a freshman, and Bill 
Morris, a sophomore, each have a 
$25 scholarship awarded them by the

Patterson Is Custodian 
Of Juco Club Room 

The college Club Room again is 
furnishing recreational retreat for all 

Ping pong takes the lead in the 
basement activities, with card games 
running a close second. For the less 
enthusiastic students the soft, easy 
chairs afford a place to rest and study. 

With the installment of a new pop 
machine, and the possibilities of a 
new candy and peanut machine in 
sight, college students may look for- 
ward to the prospect of an even better 
club room than has been provided 
them in the past. 

Bill Patterson has been selected as 
custodian of the rooms, and would 
welcome any suggestions any of the 
students or faculty may have. - 



Parker, Thomas

Bengals Play 
El Dorado; 
Beavers Next 

Determined to gain their first vic- 
tory in western division play, a tough 
Tiger squad will go against the El 
Dorado Grizzlies Friday at Curry 
Field. It will be El Dorado's first 
conference game of the season. 

The Grizzlies swamped the Emporia 
State "B" team 29 to last week 
all of the touchdowns being made on 
long runs, although they attempted 
17 passes, completing four. Out of 
12 fumbles made by them, 9 were re- 
covered by Emporia. 

Next week, on Oct. 14. the Tigers 
face the Pratt Beavers, who lost to 
Hutch last Friday by the close score 
of 24 to 32. Hutch is supposed to be 
the big power in the conference this 

The Beavers completed 10 of 13 
attemped passes for a gain of 141 
yards as compared to 4* for Hutch. 
Both teams ran high on penalties and 
low on fumbles. The Tigers upset the 
Pratt Beavers last year 27 to 12, and 
are determined to make a repeat

Adult Evening Classes Are 
Planned; Enrollment Soon 

Plans are underway for adult eve- 
ning classes, and enrollment will 
start soon, reports Dean K.R. Galle. 

There have been some requests for 
shorthand, typing, teaching mathe- 
matics for elementary school, and 
algebra. If there is sufficient demand 
for additional courses, a teacher will 
be employed and the course will be

in 2 to 2Vz hour classes with 2 or 
3 hours credit given per semester. 
A fee of $10 to $20, depending on the 
course and the number enrolled, is 

Any one interested is asked to con- 
tact the junior college office as soon 
as possible, states Dean Galle. 

Women's Gym Class 
Groans As Joints Creak 

One word expresses just what the 
girls are doing in the gym class, and 
that is excerises. The groans that are 
heard prove to Miss Edith Joyce Davis 
that the girls did not keep in condition 
during the summer. 

Tennis is to be one of the outdoor 
games provided the weather is all 
right, otherwise "gym" is held in 
the auditorium. 

Hansen To Assist 
In Juco Football 

Dale Hanson has been named assis- 
tant Juco coach by school authorities. 

Hanson formally coached the high 
school sophomores, but due to the 
few sophomores reporting for prac- 
tice and the need of a junior college 
assistant, the change was made. 

Coaching the line and assisting with 
trips will be his most important 

Hanson hails from Emporia State 
Teachers College where he played 
center in 1940. 

"I have worked with most of the 
boys in high school and am glad to 
be working with them in junior col- 
lege," Hanson said. 


Dodge Conquers 

Tigers 31-6, 

In Conference Go 

The conquering Dodge Conqs stop- 
ped the juco Tigers in their first wes- 
tern division game last Friday on 
their own gridiron with a 31 to 6 
victory. It was their second win, their 
first being from Lamar, Colo., and 
was in heavy contrast to the beating 
the Tigers gave them last year. 

Although facing an 190-pound aver- 
age line as compared to their own of 
180, the juco Tigers out-gained the 
Conqs on the ground 140 to 127, but 
they proved weak in pass offense and 
defense, making only 8 yards by air 
as compared to 112 for the Conqs. 
Nine Tiger fumbles aided the Conqs 

The Conqs led 13 to at the begin- 
ning of the second quarter. Then the 
Tigers pushed the opponents back to 
their 5 and Norman Smyer knifed 
over for the Tiger's one touchdown 
of the game. 

The following members of the team 
went on the trip: 


To Reorganize 
Language Clubs 

Miss Anne Hawley, foreign lang- 
uage instructor, is planning to re- 
organize the three language clubs 
this year. 

Any student who is taking, or has 
taken German, French, or Spanish may 
join the club of his language. Each 
meeting is conducted in the language 
of the club, and games are played 
which call for its use. 

Many students in the past have en- 
joyed these clubs, and Miss Hawley 
hopes for a large number of club 
members this year. 

Tigers Drop 
Opener to 
Ravens, 7-14 

A 95-yard runback of the Coffey- 
ville Junior College kick-off gave 
Arkansas City followers their first 
thrill of the grid season, although the 
Bengals lost their Curry Field opener 
7 to 14, September 23. 

As Coffeyville kicked off after the 
second Raven touchdown, Joe Hearne 
picked up the ball on his own 5-yard 
line and handed off perfectly to Dave 
Mueller, who went 90 more yards to 
score. Norman Smyer, almost un- 
noticed in the excitement, threw the 
key block near the AC 40-yard 
marker. Jack Holiembeak then con- 
verted the extra point. 

Adams, of Cofftyville, pushed a- 
cross the first touchdown early in the 
first quarter, and Robinson's con- 
version was good. 

After a series of plays, the Ravens 
again regained possession and Adams 
again plunged across. Robinson's con- 
version was good, making the score 14 
to 0. Then came Ark City's moment of 

"Spunked up" after Mueller's T.D., 
the Tigers came back to outplay the 
Ravens for the rest of the game. The 
Bengals consistently drove deep into 
the Ravens' own territory, but w^re 
unable to score another touchdown 

Adams of Coffeyville shone as he 
carried the ball 14 times for 104 yards 

Dave Mueller, besides making the 
long touchdown run, carried the ball 
]6 times for the Tigers for 80 yards 


College-High School Library 
In New Location 

By this time the majority of stud- 
ents have probably noticed the change 
in the library upstairs. For those 
who have not. the high school studv 
hall has taken the place of the old 
library, with the library now occupy- 
in^ the more spacious former study 
hall room. The change was made to 
provide more study space for stud- 
ents. Jucos may come and go as thev 
please, with the north tables reserved 
especially for them.

The Arkansas City Junior College 





Jucos to Aid 
Blood Bank; 
Stanley Boss 

Junior college students have again 
been asked by the Red Cross to part- 
icipate in its blood collecting program, 
which will be renewed with the arri- 
val of the bloodmobile here Decem- 
ber 1. Volunteers will be solicited 
mainly from the junior college. 

Students will be dismissed from 
classes to attend the clinic and they, 
as donors, will receive a free steak 
dinner. The blood they give will be 
available, free of charge, to anyone 
who needs a transfusion. 

Last year the college had 54 volun- 
teers. This number can easily be 
tripled if everyone will cooperate, 
sponsors believe. 

Mrs. E. T. Lindsay, local procure- 
ment chairman, announces the clinic 
will be held in the basement of the 
First Presbyterian Church. All per- 
sons intrested in donating to this 
cause should see Kenneth E. Stanley, 
freshman, who is in charge of re- 
cruiting in the college. 


Added Programs 
For Juco Students 

That extra dollar that many stud- 
ents noticed on their activity fee this 
fall is going to pay for some extra 
entertainment. The Civic Music Assoc- 
iation is again sponsoring a series 
of highly entertaining programs. 

Guy Ecroyd, president of the local 
Civic Music Association, pointed out 
the large amount of entertainment the 
junior college students will be receiv- 
ing for a small price. For $1 a semes- 
ter, juco students will get -what will 
cost the high school students $3.05, 
and adults $6.10. 

Helen Leach, as a representative 
of the juco student bodv, attended 
the association meeting at which the 
programs for the year were chosen. 
The association chose a series of four 
concerts which will consist of Marian 
Bell, soprano; Winifred Heckman, 
contralto; Frank Edwinn, baritone; 
and Raymond Lewenthal, pianist. 

Juco Teachers Attend 
Workshop at El Dorado 

Thirteen Junior College teachers 
attended the Junior College Work- 
shop meeting at El Dorado, October 

Study groups in 13 different sub- 
ject matter fields and three diferent 
administrative fields were organized 
for the attending faculty members. 

Guest consultants at the Workshop 
were Dr. William A. Black, Kansas 
State Teachers College, Pittsburg; D 
Harley Smith, William Woods College, 
Fulton, Missouri; Dr. Dwight Baird, 
Trinidad, Colo., and F. Floyd Herr, 

TAG Campaign 
Is Great Success 

"Sighted boy; signed up same" 
seems to have been Don Bohannon's 
motto during the recent TAG mem- 
bership campaign. The TAC needed 
more members, especially boys; so Don 
Bohannon campaigned for more boys. 
From the looks of the new roll, he 
succeeded pretty well. The TAC still 
wants more members — boys and girls. 
Membership is still open to anyone 
who wishes to join. 

The TAC, or Tiger Action Club, 
is the juco organization that fosters 
the school spirit at football games, 
basketball games and all worthy juco 
activities. The club uniform is a white 
cardigan sweater with an orange tiger 
emblem sewed on the back and black 
trousers or skirt. The TAC mem- 
bers wrap the goal posts with the 
different teams' colors for the football 
games and mark off reserved sections 
in the bleachers for the TAC members. 

"The club is planning many new 
activities for the school year, and I 
hope that more students will become 
interested in the TAC", says Ardelia 
Reser. club president. 


Dr. Schwegler 111, 
Unable to Speak Here 

Dr. R. A. Schwegler, psyhcologist. 
who was scheduled to lecture and hold 
personal conferences with students 
requesting such in assemblies Oct. 
10 to 14, was not able to be here due 
to 'llness. It is hoped he will recover 
and be fble to be h r re for his sche- 
duled November 28 to December 2 

Soph Co-ed 
To Be Queen 
Alalah XVIII 

Everyone around the college is con- 
cerned over preparations for the Ark- 
alalah which is to be held Oct. 27 
and 28, but of special interest to juco 
students is the coronation of Queen 
Alalah XVIII and the ceremonies held 
in collection with the coronation. 
She's in School 

Queen Alalah and her four atten- 
dents will be selected from the twenty- 
one junior college sophomore girls 
who are unmarried. Girls eligible for

College faculty members rate the 
girls according to personality, charac- 
ter, leadership, appearance, and sch- 
olarship; the names and pictures of 
the top ten girls are printed on ballots. 
and these ballots are then distributed 
to approximately 300 persons through 
out the city. After the ballots are 
marked they are returned to Dean K. 
R. Galle, who serves as chairman of 
nominaing committee. The votes are 
counted but the identity of the queen 
is not revealed until a short time 
before the coronation. 

Maag Is Chairman 

Participating in the program will 
be groups of students from the junior 
college, high school and grade schools.

Here's your chance to help get one. 
Sometime in the near future there is 
going to be a community meeting for 
the purpose of discussing plans for 
the proposed junior college and trade

building, you can prove to the voters 
that a new building will be an asset 
to the community. 

Jim Austin, Juco 
Grad, Reports On 
Naval Cadet Life 

Jim Austin, juco graduate of last 
year, who, as of last August, is a 
naval cadet at Pensacola, Fla., has 
written faculty members that he is 
thoroughly enjoying his experience. 

In his letter Jim declares navrl 
cadet service to be much to his likin"; 
and somewhat comparable to juco 
life -- "only it occupies 10 hours r. 
day now instead of 3. ' He has 2 hour", 
a day physical training, courses in 
navigation, principles of flight, essen- 
tials of naval service, naval justice, 
and communications. 

"No cuts do they allow me — it's 
rough, but surprisingly I like it, and 
think they ought to put my boy 
Chambers through something compar- 
able," writes Austin. 

In conclusion Jim expresses his 
desire to make arrangements to re- 
ceive Tiger Tales as his correspon- 
dents "are very irresponsible."

Jap Prisons 
Teach Value 
Of Freedom 

There is nothing like a Japanese 
prison camp to make one appreciate 
the United States, Brig. Gen. William 
E. Brougher, who spent four years 
as a prisoner of the Japanese, told the 
Junior College faculty and student 
body in the Junior High Auditorium. 
October 7. 

"I'll tell you what America means 
to a surivor of Bataan" he said. "The 
grandest privilege in the world today 
is to be an American. I speak with 
authority on freedom. Any time you 
loose freedom you loose everything." 

He told the students that it is every 
citizen's responsibility and duty to be 
prepared in case of another war, and 
that our nation's armed forces should 
not be reduced to a weakening min- 
imum as they were after World War I. 

General Brougher was born in 
Jackson, Mississippi on Feb. 17, 1889. 
His early life "was spent in the 
grass-grown trenches of the deep old 
south", and the biggest part of his 
army career was spent in various 
posts in the south. He was graduated 
from the Mississippi State College, 
with the class of 1910. 

His home is now at Decatur, Ga., 
but he planning to 1 uild a house in 
the wooded hills ff the bet.utiful 
northwest section of Atlanta. 

Cen. Brougher is now carrying on 
speaking tours under the auspices of 
the Extension Division of the Uni- 
vesity of Kansas. He has filled over 
250 speaking engagements, incident- 
ally traveling more than 100,000 miles. 

Der Deutsche Verein 

Sings Songs, Plays games 

"Du, du, liegst mir im Herzen. du, 
du liegst mir im Sinn." 

So sang members of the German 
language club, Der Deutsche Verein, 
at its .first meeting October 12 in the 
club rooms. Besides the famous Ger- 
man drinking song, The Lorelei, and 
many other German songs were sung. 
Then the group indulged in a guess- 
ing game with Miss Anne Hawley 
"it". Some confusion resulted when 
students, not undersanding Miss Haw- 
ley's queries in German, said the 
object wase both high from the floor 
and low high from the floor. 

It was tentatively decided meetings 
would be held every third Wednesday. 
Also a committee to nominate officers 
was selected. 

The French language club, Le 
Cercle Francais, ancl the Spanish, El 
Circulo Espanol, will be organized in 
the near future.

Bengals To 
Meet Bronks 
And Friends 

With fire in their eyes and "on the 
make," the juco Tigers will encounter 
the Garden City Broncos on the Ben- 
gal home gridiron October 21. 

The Bronks, who so far in confer- 
ence play have no wins and one loss 
to their credit, have tied Lamar, Colo., 

6 to 6 and beat McCook, Nebr., 14 to 
12. They lost to Dodge 25 to 6. Last 
year the Tigers wn over Garden 15 to

teams are ranked about even in the 

On October 28 the Tigers will 
travel to Wichita to play Friends U. 
for the first encounter between the 
teams of the two schools. It is an 
afternoon game. 

Reports on the Pratt game would 
indicate the Tigers are beginning to 
show some of their real power and 
give reason to believe the Garden City 
and Friends U. games will be chalked 
up as Tiger victories, 

Juco Co-Ed 

To Be Candidate 

For Grid Queen 

Football enthusiasts, tired of sugar, 
cotton, raisen, and orange bowls, will 
again be treated to a more substan- 
tial food when the juco eastern divi- 
sion winner battles the western divi- 
sion winner, in the second annual 
Wheat Bowl, Nov. 26. Last year it 
was the Coffeyville Ravens against 
the Hutchinson Dragons, in the play- 
off staged by the Wichita Junior 
Chamber of Commerce. 

To add glitter and pictorial interest 
to the game, Ark City, with 11 other 
jucos has been asked to send a nomi- 
nee for Wheat Bowl queen. Arkansas 
City's nominee last year was Bebe 
Jo Louderbach. The Wheat Bowl 
queen o flast year was the Iola en- 

Nominees, who may be any regu- 
larly enrolled unmarried female stu- 
dent, will have use of a suit of rooms 
at the Hotel Lassen, have a reserved 
section at the game, and be presented 
gifts at a dance to be given in their 
honor the evening of the game. The 
nominees will be presented at half- 
time of the game and the queen an- 

All are to attend a luncheon with 
the judges at noon on the day of the 
game, at which time judging will 
take place. Main points judged will 
be personality and appearance. 

Band to Have New Uniforms 
Council Appropriates $120 

At the student council meeting, 
Oct. 12, it was decided that the band 
should have uniforms financed in part 
by the student council funds. The 
amount appropriated for this pur- 
pose is $120. 

Uniforms are to consist of white 
turtle-neck sweaters with tiger em- 
blems on the back and trousers with 
contrasting stripes up the sides. The 
color of the trousers has not yet been 
definitely decided upon, as both 
orange and true blacK trousers are 
difficult to obtain. As soon as such 
difficulties are cleared up, the juco 
band will appear in its new uniforms.

Tigers Tumble 
Before Grizzlies 
In Second Game 

The Arkansas City Tigers stum- 
bled in their second league game to 
the El Dorado Grizzlies, 13 to 7, at 
Curry Field Oct. 7. 

The Tigers were in scoring position 
twice in the first quarter and each 
time the Grizzlies tightened their line 
and held them back. In the second 
quarter the Tigers began to play bet- 
ter ball but were unable to prevent 
LeNormand from scoring El Dorado's 
first touchdown. Snyder's conversion 
was not successful. 

Opening the second half. El Dorado 
kicked off to Ark City and were able 
to hold the Tigers behind the 25-yard 
line for four downs, where they took 
possession of the ball, and after a 
series of power plays, Love went 
over for a touchdown. Snyder's con- 
version was good. 

Again El Dorado kicked off to the 
Tigers, who took the ball on about 
the 10-yard line and worked up to 
the 31-yard line. Then Mueller, on a 
quick hand-off from Hearne, cut off 
tackle, knifed his way past the line 
backers, outran the safety and scored 
Ark City's only touchdown. Hollem- 
beak's conversion was good 

The Tigers made a good showing 
in the fourth quarter, but time ran 
out as they threatened to score

Large Turnout 
For First Social 

A group of about 200 enjoyed the 
first college social, held after the 
El Dorado-Ark City game, October 

Card games and ping-pong drew 
part of the group to the club room 
while those who wished to dance did 
so in the girls gym. 

The party was in charge of the 
student council social committee, of 
which Marjorie Ghramm is chairman.

core of 6-6 

Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers fought to a draw with Pratt 
Junior College in a 6 to 6 tie game, 
Oct. 14, at Pratt. 

The Tigers scored early in the sec- 
ond quarter when a pass from Hearne 
to Winslow put the ball on the 6- 
yard line, Neal hit the line for 5, and 
Hearne pushed over for the first 
score of the game. Hollembeaks' con- 
version was not good. 

After the kick-off, Arkansas City 
fumbled, with Pratt regaining posses- 
ion on the Tiger 20-yard line. Hunter, 
shifty Pratt backfield ace, scrambled 
around end for the T. D. The conver- 
sion was blocked. 

Play was pretty even until late 
in the fourth quarter when a Pratt 
punt was blocked on the 50-yard line. 
The next play was probably the most 
disputable of the entire game, when 
Mueller hit off tackle, and see-sawed 
down the side line, only to be hit as 
he dived across the goal line, fumb- 
ling as he hit the ground. Officials, 
after a short conference, ruled the 
ball was fumbled before enterng the 
end zone. 

With Pratt recovering the fumble, 
it was ruled a touchback, with play 
being resumed on the 20 yard line. 

The game ended with Pratt passing 
desperately in the Tigers' territory. 

The Tigers' defense clicked all 
evening, tackling in tne Beavers' back- 
field and blocking many passes and 
punts. The offense made gain after 
gain only to have a penalty called 
against them. 


Debate Teams 
Start Practice 

The Junior College debate teams 
are shaping up fairly well, says A.E. 
Maag, director of debate and foren- 
sics. So far, five people have indicated 
their plans of participating. They are 
Helen Leach and Bill Gemar, sopho- 
mores; Helen Ramsey, Jane DeVore, 
and Jack Pfisterer, freshmen. 

The debaters will take part in two 
meets before Christmas. The remain- 
der of the season will be during the 
second semester. 

Anyone else who is interested 
should see Mr. Maag at once.

Carlson Dubs 
Queen Alalah 

Treva Harrison, junior college 
sophomore, was crowned Queen Alalah 
XVIII last Thursday evening,- at the 
coronation ceremonies. 

The crown, made of rhinestones, 
beads, and sequins was placed on the 
brunette by Governor Frank Carlson, 
vv ..iie her four attendants, her flower 
girls aid train bearers watched. 

Attendants were Norma Jo Baker, 
Masllen Bossi, Jacqueline Crews, and 
Marjoris Chrsmm, runners-up in the 
popular election. 

The coronation, in the form of a 
royal cauit, was announced by trum- 
peteers. Royal jesters preceded the 
visiting queens as they marched the 
length of the auditorium to the stage. 
Atterd?nts were followed by the two 
small flower girls, after which Queen 
Alalah made her royal appearance. 
The trein of her white satin gown 
was carried by two small train bearers. 

Date Set For 
Community Meet 

The date for the community meeting 
on the junior college building was to 
be set November 1 at a meetng of the 
school board, Supt. J.J. Vineyard an- 
nounced last week. 

Plans are being made to hear re- 
ports from the juco faculty members 
on surveys thev have made concerning 
the needs of this building. The surveys 
have been made as to what type of 
curriculum would be best suited in 
this community, and what kind of a 
curriculum should be established in 
light of these reports. This will deter- 
mine the type, number, and size of 
rooms. Sample designs are being pre- 
paid which will show the type room 
best suited for a particular course. 

Dr. Vineyard states that it is hoped 
that the building can be started by 
next summer, or as soon as the pre- 
sent hospital building is completed.

Bailey To Do 
Magic And Music 
At Assembly 

How would you like to get five 
dollars for just telling your name? 
Then by all means attend the assem- 
bly November 10. George Bailey, the 
man with the photographic mind, will 
give you five dollars if he doesn't re- 
member" your name. 

He claims that he can meet 100 per- 
sons at the first of the program — then 
at the last of the program pick the 
names from a list. If he forgets your 
name, you get the $5. 

Bailey, a member of the Interna- 
tional Brotherhood of Magicians, will 
put on a magic and music show in 
addition to his memory trick. 

It seems that Mr. Bailey enjoys cut- 
ting: up spectators' ties and baking 
cookies over a hat. 

Baney, always different, uses a set 
of glasses partly filled with water 
to play old tunes, sweet music, and 
new melodies. He used to be a violin- 
ist, but his music sounded so much 
like that of Jack Benny that it has 
been discontinued from the show by 
popular request.

Crews Made 
Grid Queen; 
Contest Close 

Jacqueline Crews, sophomore beau- 
ty, was elected Wheatbowl Queen 
candidate and juco grid queen by juco 
students at an election held Monday. 
When even a preferential vote yielded 
a tie vote for Jacqueline and Norma 
Baker, the student council resorted 
to the method of weighting the votes. 
Jacqueline won by counting the votes 
in this method and also would have 
won by a plurality vote. No candidate 
had a majority of votes. 

Joan Coulson, Treva Harrison, 
Elaine Probst, and Mary Swear in gen 
were the four other girls chosen by 
the football team as nominees. 

The eleven candidates from Kansas 
junior colleges participating in the 
Wheatbowl series will travel to 
Wichita on November 26 to be present 
at the Wheatbowl game. During the 
game they will sit in a reserved 
section, and during the half-time of 
the game, the nominees will be pre- 
sented and the queen will be an- 
planned for all the potential queens 

A luncheon with the judges is 
on the day of the game. The dance will 
be held on the evening of the game in 
the ballroom of the Hotel Lassen. 

The entire affair is sponsored by the 
Wichita Junior Chamber of Commerce 
athletic committee, in charge of the 
Wheatbowl game, and by the student 
councils in the respective colleges. 

Mrs. Bebe Jo Louderback Hearne 
represented Arkansas City in the 
first competition last year.

A nosey reporter, while prying-

the teature story of an October 1939 
school paper, "New Juco Building To 
Be Erected Here Next Year." Also , 
"Juco Band To Get New Uniforms." 
"Where have We heard this Before?" 

The past generations of Juco 
allumni have seen the possibilities of 
a new juco-trade school building, but 
have been able to do nothing about it. 

If every student would take the re- 
sponsibility up-on him-self to help 
futher this worth-while drive, the 
Juco's of 49 and 50, would be taking 
the advance step necessary to com- 
plete this ten-year old issue. 

According to latest information, the 
band uniforms are finally on their

for the past ten years ?

dank and handsome lad who hails 
from Grainola, Okla. His name is 
Eugene Kelley, and he was born on

on a ranch, which accounts for his 
love of horses and horseback riding. 
His favorite pastimes are "rodoeing" 
and hunting. Naturally enough, his 
favorite food is beefsteak. The fact 
that he played basketball at Grainola 
high school for 4 years explains why 
asketball is his favorite sport.

vocation he will take up, but at the 
present he is taking courses in both 
veterinarian and agriculture fields. 
He states that he likes ACJC. and he

Douglas, Kansas, where she was grad- 
uated from high school. She is five 
feet, eight inches tall and has grey 
eyes and brown hair. 

She is a member of the Christian 
Association and the colors green and 
blue rate as her favorites. 

In case you haven't guessed who 
this freshman girl is, her name is 
Phyllis Fox. She may be reached at 
216 North Second Street, where she 
is living with her cousin, Frances 
Fox, junior college sophomore. 

Phyllis is the third member f her 
family to attend ACJC. her brother

Education Added 
To Curriculum 

Distributive education and trade 
and industry are terms which are be- 
coming more and more familiar with 
the students of ACJC. This plan, new 
here this year, is an on-th-job train- 
ing course. Distributive education deal 
solely with salemanship, while trade 
and industry is job training in handi- 
crafts and manufacturing. 

The purpose of this plan is to train 
junior college men and women for the 
particular job they may choose. It is 
primarily for those students who plan 
to attend college only two years, but 
they may specialize is distributive 
education and go on to a four-year 
college for advanced work in the field. 

Those participating may work where 
they choose if the student does not 
have a job the school will aid him 
in locating one. 

Students attend a class called "re- 
lated training" from eight to ten each 
morning plus any other subjects they 
may choose. Related training deals 
with each student individually and 
with any problem which may confront 
him in his downtow njob. 

This semester only boys are enrolled 
The course is open to new students 
at the semester, however, at which 
time girls may enroll. 

On October 12 the Distributive Ed- 
ucation Business Club was organ- 
ized and elected officers. They are Don 
Cox, president; Ned Branine, vice- 
president; and Jack Hughes, secre- 
tary - treasurer. There are thirteen

Long Forgotten 
Juco School Song 
Is Rediscovered 

Some juco will be surprised to know 
they have a school song belonging 
to their very own selves. The words 
were written by a former teacher 
here, Miss Lucille Plette, and the 
music by a former student, Jess Mee- 
ker. The late A. E. San Romani 
arranged the music. 
Here are the words: 

Let life sing of A. C. collegs days 

With joyous songs and rousing 

The happy friendships made will 
always bring 

Sweet mem'ries in the after years. 

Wepledg to you A. C, our loyalty 

In work or play we'll stand the test. 

The orange an dblack of junior 

Will always wave among the best. 

Colors gay will fly again today 

For A. C. Tigers brave and strong 

We cheer for you in victory or 

Our voices raise in havpy song. 

It is for loyalty and fellowship 
We pledge to you A. C, our loyalty 

The spirit of our junior college 
Will ever more mem'ry live. 
Wouldn't it be a good idea for the 
TAC or cheer leaders or music de- 
partment to reintroduce the song, or 
if it stinks to select another one ? 
After all, what is a school without 
a school song? Besides, who knws, if

might make the hit parade and then 
we would have some money to buy

Tigers, October 29. at Lawrence Sta- 
dium, Wichita. 

Ark City took the lead early in the 
second quarter, when Don Winslow 
recovered a Friend's fumble on the 
30-yard line. Smyer then carried the 
ball to the 4-yard line, and Hearne 
plunged over for the T. D. Hollem- 
beak's kick went wide. 

Ark City took the lead 13 to 6, for 
the first half, when Hearne passed to 
Bartholomew, and the latter went 55 
yards to score. The conversion pass 
from Hearne to Mueller was good. 

After a Friend's punt and an Ark 
City offside, in the final stanza, Hud- 
gins passed to Yazel to score. The 
conversion was good, making the 
score 13-13. Twice in the same quart- 
er the Arks got to the Quaker 2-yard 
line, only to bog down. 

Friend's took the lead late in the 
fourth quarter, when Hudgins pass- 
ed to Yazel for the T.D. The con- 
version was blocked. Freind's then 
stalled out the rest of the same.

Victims of 
Tiger Gridmen 

Hard-charging, rip-roaring Tigers 
displayed their best football hospitality 
in trouncing the Garden City Brones 
25 to 6, October 21, at Curry Field. 

The first touchdown came in the 
middle of the second quarter when 
the Tigers, on their first sustained 
drive of the year, marched from their 
15 to the Brones' 12. Mueller then 
circled right end and made the T. D. 
Late in the second quarter Bill Neal 
scored the Tigers' second T. D. from 
the 6-yard line, following a Tiger 
drive which began at the Brones' 25- 
yard line. 

Later yet in the second quarter 
Mueller made one of his spectacular 
runs down the sidelines for 51 yards. 
The third quarter was scoreless, with 
the ball seesawing back and forth 
across the field. In the middle of Lie 
fourth came the final T. D. for the 
Tigers, when Martin, playing at 
quarter for the first time, rammed 
fifteen yards through the line, and 
then crashed 2 more for the score. 

Jack Hollembeak made good one try 
for the extra point out of four at- 

The Brones' score came late in the 
final stanza as a result of 57 and 19 
yard passes completed against Tiger 

The Tigers outgained the Brones 
327 yards to 238. including passes, 
had 12 first downs to the Brones' 9.

Band members are eagerly await- 
ing the arrival of the new uniforms 
for which they have waited so long. 

A representative from the Fruhauf 
Uniform Company of Wichita was 
here Nov. 8 to take measurements. 
Twenty-five uniforms are being or- 

The uniforms will consist of black 
trousers with an orange stripe down 
the side and white pull-over sweaters 
with the tiger emblem. It is hoped 
that by next year a regular uniform 
jacket can be purchased to complete 
the outfit. 

Uniforms are scheduled to be de- 
livered in time to be warn to the 
Wheat Bowl game, Nov. 26. 

For nearly ten years there has 
been hope that enough people would 
be enrolled in band to warrant the 
purchase of uniforms, but each year 
the project has been put aside. This 
year it was decided that more interest 
could be aroused if uniforms were pur- 
chased, so a supreme effort was made 
and it ended successfully.

The new junior college and trade 
school building is finally becoming a 
plan rather than just a dream. 

Sealed bids for construction of the 
building will be accepted by the school 
board in July and it is planned to 
start construction about the time the 
new hospital is completed next year. 

"It is hoped," Supt. J. J. Vineyard 
said, "that classes will meet in the 
new building for the first time in 
September of 1951" 

At its November meeting, the 
school board also set a date for the 
public hearing for the educationtional 
specifications on the building. This 
hearing, to be held on November 28 
at 8 p. m. in the junior high school 
auditorium, will give the parents and 
other interested persons a change to 
state their views of needed facilities 
and to hear a description of facilities 
which are already included in the 

Two years ago juco students spon- 
sored an all-out campaign to raise 
$350,000 for the new building. This 
mony is now laying in wait until it 
will be needed to start work. 

"Since we have only a certain 
amount of money, plans for the new 
junior college and trade school build- 
ing include the facilities which will 
contribute the most for the most 
people," say Dr. Vineyard.

German Club 
In Dark As 
Light Fails 

"Was happen" muttered members 
of Miss Anne Hawley's German class 
November 9 as they stumbled about. 
It was the second meeting in the 
juco club rooms of Der Deutsch Ver- 
ein, the German language club. The 
mutterings were occasioned by the 
blowing of a fuse blacking out all the 
lights when a movie camera cord was 
plugged in. Cider and doughnuts to 
be served following a movie seemed 
to be the center of attention while 
the lights were out. with many mem- 
bers finding fillin ga cup in the dark 
to be rather difficult and wet business. 
Finally the scheduled movie, which 
concerned the present educational con- 
ditions in Europe, was presented. 

Earlier in the mpeting elections 
were held. Mary Swearingen was 
elected president; Bob Darrough, vice- 
president; Betty Harrington, secre- 
tary; and Bill Gemar, reporter. In 
the near future a program committee 
will be selected. The sixteen mem- 
bers decided to buy some Christmas 
gifts for a German child through a 
organization for gifts to Europe's 
needy. The meeting will be held Nov- 
ember 30. 

Bonfire and Social Staced 
Before Iola Game 

The first junior college night pep 
rally was held the night before the 
game with Iola. The school spirit, in 
anticipation of a Tiger's victory, was 
displayed with a snake dance on Sum- 
mit Street. The snake dance was fol- 
lowed by a bonfire where marshmal- 
lows were toasted and the cheerleaders 
lead a few yells. The students spent 
the rest of the evening dancing and 
playing cards and ping pong in the 
juco club rooms. The social commit- 
tee was in charge of arrangements.

Bailey Presents 
Magic, Music, 
And Memory 

Jucos were treated to a program 
of music, memory and magic Novem- 
ber 8 at the lyceum presented by 
George Bailey. Looking younger than 
his professed forty-seven years, he 
started off by having the classes of 
P. M. Johnson and Miss Sleeth trek 
across the stage while he rattled off 
each person's name by memory, hav- 
ing trouble only with Joe Cary and 
Jack Acklin. He had spent about ten 
minutes before the assembly meeting 
the students. As a result of Bailey's 
being unable to recall his name for 
about a minute, Acklin came off the 
stage a dollar richer. 

In reply to a query by Dean K. R. 
Galle as to how he did it, Bailey re- 
plied that it took brains, required 
great concentration, strict attention, 
and repetition of names, the major 
factor being the degree of attention. 
According to Bailey, anyone of aver- 
age intelligence could do as well if 
he knew he would lose five dollars if 
he forgot. 

Came magic, with Bunt Speer's 
green tie being gayly cut up only to 
be put back together later. Next vic- 
tim was Don Lyle who, as a result of 
one card being the right card, could 
be sure he was "living the right kind 
of life." Many wonder if he was as 
puzzled as they at the card trick in 
which the ace of spades somehow got 
between the two pieces of ^;lass. Tall 
Jack Sayers was a victim when his 
hat was put on fire, but wasn't. For 
enduring such an ordeal he was re- 
warded with cookies which, although 
according to Bailey were made last 
March. Sayers seemed to relish. May- 
be he was hungry. 

Following magic the audience was 
entertained with music from four sets 
of musical glasses. Bailey, playing 
from two to five notes with each hand, 
played five songs, including "Bells of 
St. 'Mary's" and "White Christmas." 
According to Bailey the small, high- 
toned glasses are inexpensive as com- 
pared to the large ones. 

With music still in the audience's 
ears, Eailey called to the sta°-e "the 
man with the head of hair", none 
other than teacher Daniel Stark. Some 
chemistry students seemed strangely 
elated when Bailey relieved the teach- 
er of his shirt. So ended the lyceum of 
magic, music and memory.

Blue Dragons 

In Last Duel 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers, "back from the war" in the 
eastern conference with the Indepen- 
dence Pirates, are engaging in vigor- 
us practice in preparation for their 
forthcoming game with the tough 
Hutchinson Blue Dragons. 

The Hutch gridiron duel will be the 
last for the Tigers this season and 
they will be anxious to avenge last 
year's loss and scramble the western 
conference lead. 

The Dragons are rated the toughest 
team in the state and are out to main- 
tain their unbeaten conference mark 
and chalk up their second trip to the 
Wheat Bowl. 

In conference play, so far this year, 
the highly rated Dragons have won 
4 games, losing or tying none. Push- 
ing over a total of 130 points, they 
have held their opponents to a total 
of 31. In non-conference games, how- 
ever, they suffered defeat at the 
hands of the Wichita U. "B's" and 
Compton, Calif., Junior College, 1948

Lawhon Retrieves 
As Thornbro Swats 
Ball Into Canal 

If you hear water splashing in the 
canal down by the football field, it is 
probably Mary Lawhon retrieving a 
golf ball. The girls gym class, under 
the direction of Miss Edith Davis, has 
been learning a few of the fundamen- 
tals of golf. The girls have been prac- 
ticing their golf at Curry Field dur- 
ing their class periods. Whenever a 
golf ball gets knocked into the canal, 
Mary immediately jumps in to re- 
trieve it. 

Now you might think that not very 
many balls are hit hard enough by 
these beginners to travel clear across 
field, but when Neva Thornbro hits the 
ball, it, in all probability, sails beau- 
tifully through the air and lands — you

Tigers Down 
Red Devils 
21 To 

The Tigers chalked lip their sec- 
ond win of the season against the 
Iola Red Devils, November 2, 21 to 0. 

Iola was able to gain only 96 yards 
against the strong Tiger defensive 
line. The Red Devils then took to the 
air, but failed again as they completed 
only three out of their 27 attempted 

The Tigers rolled up a total of 348 
yards while the Red Devils had a 
total of 162 yards. 

The Bengals forced Iola to punt 
deep in their own territory shortly 
after the opening kick-off. Hatcher 
partially blocked Iola's kick. Hearne 
then hit Bartholomew with a short 
jump pass for a first down. On the 
next play Bill Neal crashed over for 
the TD. Boyles passed to Mueller for 
the extra point. 

The Tigers score again late in 
the first quarter after a Red Devil 
fumble. Boyles received a pass from 
Neal and ran over. A pass from Boyles 
to Acklin converted the extra point. 

The Bengal's final score came in 
the last quarter when Mueller took a 
hand-off from Hearne and ran 74 
yards untouched as he crossed the 
end zone. Hollembeak then kicked 
the extra point to bring the score to 21 
to 0.

Pirates Sink 
Tigers, 21-13 
On Road Trip 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers in an afternoon homecoming 
game with the Independence Pirates 
were defeated 21 to 13 on the Pirates' 
home field. 

The Tigers came across with the 
first score late in the first quarter, 
when big Martin came through 
the Pirates offensive wall and blocked 
a Pirate punt. The ball rolled into 
the end zone, where it was recovered 
by Martin and Winslow. Morris con- 
verted and the Tigers led 7 to 0. 

Play was even until a Pirate pass, 
Smith to Ghook, was good in the end 
zone. Miller converted, tying the score 
7 all. 

Ark City bounced back with a short 
pass over the middle, Hearne to Bar- 
tholomew, and the latter went to the 
Pirate 2-yard line before being pulled 
down from behind. Hearne then went 
over on a quarterback keepper play. 
The conversion was not good. 

With only 14 seconds left in the 
first half, the Pirate quarter lateraled 
25 yards to the right and back to the 
halfback who threw a 50-yard pass 
into the end zone. The conversion was 
good and the Pirates lead 14 to 13 
at the half. 

Receiving the kick off, the Bengals 
were forced to kick from their own 
end zone, the ball being put in play 
on the 30-yard line. Three plays later 
the Pirates pushed over their third 
T. D. Miller then converted. 

Ark City penetrated twice more 
deep into the Pirates' territory but 
was unable to score. 

The Tiger defensive line outplayed 
the Pirates, but went to sleep on a 
few plays. Offensively the Tiger line 
was opening up good holes, but the 
downfield blocking was bad. 

Committee to Present 
Thanksgiving' Assembly 

The annual "Thanksgiving" assem-

members of the assembly committee, 
composed of Bill Gemar, Bill Hines, 
Caroline Hinsey, Kenneth Stanley and 
Virginia Weisgerber, have announced. 
The program will be traditional in 
nature and involve student participa- 

some second hand balls. Helen Ramsey 
hit one of these so hard on her first 
try that she knocked off half of the 
outside covering'. So watch out, every- 
body, when the girls gym class starts

swing their clubs perfectly now, but 
just give them time.

Crews Is 
Second In 

Jacqueline Crews, Arkansas City 
Wheatbowl queen candidate, ran sec- 
ond only to Caroline Ash, Indepen- 
dence entry, as the twelve college 
beauties were paraded before the 
Wheatbowl crowd of 5,000 fans at 
Wichita Saturday. 

As first attendant to the queen, 
Jackie was presented with a portable 
radio, and with her escort was guest 
of honor at the Queen's Ball after the 
game, and at a pre-game luncheon. 

In the annual Wneatbowl classic the 
Coffeyville eastern division champions 
battled the Hutch western division 
champions to a 13 to 13 tie. The same 
teams tied in the bowl 6 to 6 last 
year. Both teams may still boast they 
have not been defeated in conference 
play over a 3-year period. 

The game's final outcome was 
somewhat surprising as the Ravens 
led the Hutch Dragons 13 to at 
the half. However the Dragons far 
outg^ined the Ravens on the ground 
an din the air. The Dragons tied the 
^ame up in the first minutes of the 
last quarter on a 92-yard march. The 
game ended in a flurry with the ball 
clanging hands many times and both 
teams taking big chances. 

Teams and bands from many of the 
jucos were at the game, having been 
supplied free tickets by the Wichita 
Junior Chamber of Commerce, spon- 
sors of the game. Members of the 
juco Tigers grid squad plus 19 juco 
band members attended the game.

bureau for an appointment, or go 
directly to the church. 

Juco students are scheduled mainly 
in the morning and are to be excused 
from classes if necessary says Dean 
K. R. Galle. It takes approximately 
ten minutes to draw the blood, then 
fifteen minutes of rest, and finally 
time for a free steak dinner. 

Of the four types of blood. O, A, 
AB, and B, type is especially de- 
sired as it can be used in matching 
all the others. 

Mrs. Lindsay says they can handle 
eight persons each quarter hour. She 
especially wished to stress the fact 
that young donors make good donors. 
The need for the blood is urgent, as 
supply has barely kept up with de- 
mand. The blood may be preserved in 
its whole state for only 21 days, after 
which it is transformed into plasma. 
The bloodmobile will be in Ark City 
again sometime in January as the Red 
Cross trier to have it here once each 
00 days. 

Of College 
Is Debated 

A group of approximately 100 per- 
sons gathered in the junior high audi- 
torium Monday evening, Nov. 28, for 
the purpose of discussing the plans 
for construction of the long-awaited 
new junior college building. 

Reports were given by the chairmen 
of committees who had examined the 
needs of a new building. The meeting 
was then thrown open for discussion 
and questions by the group. 

The program was in charge of Guy 
Hutchinson, and committee reports 
were given by P. M. Johnson, Forrest 
Haines, Carl Holman, Dean K. R. 
Galle, and Supt. J. J. Vineyard. Mr. 
Johnson reported on the findings of 
his committee concerning the curic- 
ulum offered in other junior colleges 
in Kansas and across the nation. Mr. 
Haines discussed the industrial aspects 
connected with the building. Dean Gal- 
le presented statistics concerning en- 
rollment of the past and what is ex- 
pected for the future. Dr. Vineyard 
told of basic considerations that must 
be weighed before the building can 
be started, and Mr. Holman showed 
the artist's perspectives which the 
architect had made and told of the 
sample class rooms made by each 

An enthusiastic discussion followed 
with expressions and questions from 
many members of the group. 

George Stanley, j.c. '24, and W. L. 
Cunningham, Arkansas City attorneys, 
blasted the board of education and 
faculty speakers for their recommen- 
dations, and themselves recommended 
the abandonment of the new college- 
trade school building plans and re- 
habilitation and use of the old high- 
school building at Central and Sec- 
ond as a college building. Others 
questioned the board on plans and 
costs of the new building, and costs of 
repairing the old building.

Mr. Ed 

* * _: 

This Mr. Ed is a charming guy 
who has a knack for getting other 
people to talk about themselves. 

He was born in Arkansas City and 
was graduated from the local high 
school after growing to a height of 
5 feet, 9 inches. He spent four years 
in the Army between the time of his 
high school graduation and his return 
to attend junior college here. This 
sophomore says he is studying to be 
a math teacher, but his one ambition 
is to retire. 

Mr. Ed likes to hunt, fish, and 
play baseball. His favorite color is 
blue, and his favorite food is steak. 
His favorite song is "Tonight We 

You probably know by now that 

Mr. Ed is none other than Jim Mc- 

Kimson, who has been very happily 

married since August 21 of this year. 



Miss Co-Ed 
= * * ^^ 

On the morning of May 23, 1931, at 
Oskaloasa, Iowa, the stork delivered 
to the door of Mr. and Mrs. C. R. 
Rosecrans a small bundle, that was 
christened, Jo Ann. 

This attractive, 5 foot 6, 18-year- 
old gal, has liR'ht brown hair and 
green eyes. She attended North High, 
where she met and later married, Mr. 
Ed of this issue, Jim Mc Kimson. 

She likes chicken, music, and bas- 
ketball. Her hobby is teaching dancing 
while listening to "Star Dust." Her 
ambition is, "To be a perfect house- 

— acjc— 

First frog: Come out and sing 
with us tonight. 

Second frog: I can't. I have a man 
in my throat. 


We at last have hopes of changing 
the name of this column. The new juco 
building means that the "Basement 
University" will come out of the base- 
ment. We will then have to have some 
other kind of "buzz" besides "base- 
ment buzz." But who cares as long 
as we get a new building ? 

D. C. Stark has been promising to 
give Hershey bars to the students 
in his beginning chemistry class — 
but there's a catch. They have to 
give him the correct formula for a 
compound. If they don't they have 
__to give him Hershey bars. Seems__ 
Mr. Stark is due for a lot of candy. 

The zoology class has been drawing 
worm pictures from preserved speci- 
mens, and the other day Jack Cham- 
bers asked: "Mr. Day, why can't we 
have this class at one o'clock instead 
of just before dinner?" 

Mr. Day: "It's better to have it at 
this time. This way you don't have 
anything to lose." 

The students in English Literature 

were studying the Alcestis of Euri- 
pides and several students inquired 
as to why they cut a lock of hair from 
a dying person. One student quietly 
replied : 

"They were getting Toni samples." 

One Friday morning in Miss Haw- 
ley's French class Paul Price read this 
headline from a newspaper: "French 
Student Slays French Teacher." The 
following Monday morning the stu- 
dents noticed in her class room a large 
club. Self defuse, no doubt. 

At a recent PTA Meeting Allan 
Maag made the remark, "Sometimes I 
wonder how there can be so many 
little devils." He paused and surveyed 
the audience. It is understood that he 
found the answer. 

When Mary Lawhon made a bright 
remark in gym class, Caroline Hin- 
sey said, "Mary, don't be so stupid." 
Mary came back with: "If you think 
I m stooped, you should see my

Thanksgiving passes uneventful 
for many, but for others it held speci- 
al significance in one form or another. 
A poll of various juco students proved 
eating, sleeping and hunting to be 
favorite pastimes for many. 

Neva Thornbro — Went back to Mil- 
ton where I had a visitor. (Who) 

Bob Howarth — Went hunting. (It 
was quail season, wasn't it?) 

Naomi Clark — Worked. 

Joan Coulson — Went home and ate 
and slept. 

Bob Campbell — Went home. 

Marjorie Ghramm — Stayed here to 
catch up. 

Bob Doramus — Slept and went 

Caroline Hinsey — Wrote a term 

Gene Evans — Spent a very enjoy- 
able day at home with my friend. 

Helen Ramsey — Went hunting. 

Bill Patterson-Gained some weight. 

Students Share In 
Giving Thanks 

A special Thanksgiving assembly 
was held Wednesday November 23. 

The stage was decorated only with 
the American flag. It was moving 
slighty in a breeze that appeared to 
be coming out of nowhere. 

The college chorus, seated in the 
balcony, opened the program by sing- 
ing "We Gather Together." Bill 
Himes, assembly chairman, set the 
fcneme for a student program of 
thankfulness for all the rest of the 
^riays of the year. 

" The Rev. W. C. Neal, Cedar Vale 
i -minister and a college sophomore, 
read the scripture and gave a prayer 
of thanksg'iving. Mary Swearingen 
gave thanks for education, and for the 
college at home, so that many might 
get two years of college, who other- 
wise could do so. John Maier gave 
thanks for the right to gather in our 
homes, to gather at the different clubs, 
to meet at our own places of wor- 
ship, the basic right of assembly. Win- 
ston Menish gave thanks for being an 
American, the right to speak our 
minds, the right to pick our own re- 

The program was concluded with 
the chorus singing "For the Beauty 
of the Earth." 

Is Football Being Ruined? 
Coaches Of Army, Rutgers 
Debate Free Substitution 

Free substitution is destroying col- 
legiate football! 

So says Harvey Harman, coach of 
Rutgers, in November Esquire. But 
in the same article, "THE PLATOON 
BALL?" Earl "Red" Blaik of Army 
defends specialization. 

These two top coaches face off and 
punt the most controversial subject 
in collegiate football back and forth 
across Esquire's pages. 

Harman, past president of the 
American Football Coaches Associa- 
tion, maintains that free substitution 
is destroying the personal advant- 
ages of the game. "I want to be a 
coach, not a traffic cop," declares 
Harman. One of his players after 
shuttling on and off the field all 
afternoon, remarked, "Hell, this isn't 
a football team, it's an army. This 
isn't a game, it's maneuvers." 

Blaik, standing up for the platoon 
system, states it brings the fan 
better, faster games and sives more 
boys a chance to play. "It is a simple 
matter of efficiency," exclaims Blaik. 
"E T en the die-hards who cling to old 
fashioned techniques and customs will 
have 1 to admit, sooner of later, that 
patoon play gives more athletes a 
chance to play better football. And 
if that isn't an achievement that's 
eminently worth-while, we might as 
well turn in our uniforms." 

Debate Squad To 
Attend Tourney 

Allen Maag, forensics coach, plans 
to take his debate squad to Pittsburgh 
December 9, to participate in a four- 
state debate tournament, he an- 
nounced this week. 

This will be the debaters first tour- 
nameit this year. The topic is "Nation- 
alization of Basic Industries," the 
intercallegiate question this year. 

Maag plans to take Helen Leach, 
Bill Gemar, Helen Ramsey. Jane De- 
Vore, Don Pringle, and Jack Pfister. 

Helen Leach and Bill Gemar were 
on last year's debate team, while th° 
other four are newcomers to college

Judy Peck 
Speaks to 
French Club 

Judy Peck, former student, was the 
guest speaker at the French Club 
meeting, November 15. Miss Peck 
told of her trip through Europe last 
summer which was sponsored by the 
Experiment in International Living. 
This organization's purpose is to cre- 
ate a better understanding among the 
peoples of the world by having them 
live together for a short time and to 
learn to understand each other better. 

Miss Peck went to France with a 
group of 10 persons, but after they 
reached Solesmes, France, they were 
separated and each person went to 
live with a French family. She spent 
4 weeks in Solesmes living with the 
family as a daughter. While she was 
with the family she learned to enjoy 
the French custom of taking 2 hours 
for lunch. 

After her month was up at Soles- 
mes she returned to the group and to- 
gether they went on a bicycle tour 
through Brittany. While on the tour 
they were fortunate enough to get to 
see two festivals, one a religious cere- 
mony and the other was a folklore 
festival. The bicycle tour lasted for 
two weeks and then they spent the 
next eight days in Paris, where they 
were busy day and night trying to 
see all the sights. 

The last eight days in Paris ended 
the sponsored tour, but Miss Peck 
and a friend went on their own to 
"Switzerland to Brussels, and to Ams- 
terdam. The remainder of their time 
was spent in London. 

Miss Peck's only regret was that 
she could not spend more time in 


Officers Elected At 
French Club Meeting 

Priscilla Laughlin was elected presi- 
dent of the French Club; Jack Burnett, 
vice president; Paul Price, secretary; 
and Glenn Brittingham, club reporter, 
at the November 15 meeting. 

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dyal were 
guests of the French Club. Mrs. Dyal 
is a native of Normandy. Other guests 
were Bob Darrough and Walter Ric- 

Cider and doughnuts were served 
as refreshments. 


One morning last week Mr. Stark 
dismissed his class by saying, "All 
right you can wake up and leave."

Games On 

Following the November 29 game 
with St. Johns, the Bengal basket- 
bailers meet the Independence Pirates 
December 6 on the Independence 
court. Last year the Bengals trounced 
the Pirates 35 to 24 in their first 
season encounter. December 9 on the 
home court the Bengals face the Hutch 
Dragons which they last year downed 
32 to 27. Again on the home court 
December 14 the Bengals will battle 
the Parson Cardinals. 

Little is as yet known about the 
Pirates, Cardinals or Dragons except 
that they will be no pushover. With 
bright memories of the brilliant bas- 
ketball record of last year the Tigers 
will be giving their all. 

Ramsey, Fennel, and Miser 
Entertain Spanish Club 

Helen Ramsey and Jean Fennel be- 
gan the Spanish Club program 
November 22 by singing "Solamente 
Una Vez" or You Belong to My 
Heart". They were 'aided in this ac- 
complishment by Carrie Webb, who 
played the piano. 

Don Miser then extended the en- 
tertainment by showing a comedy 
film, "Donald's Mexican Romance." 

While the club members were still 
laughing over Donald's antics, they 
started playing "Upset the Fruit Bas- 
ket", using the Spanish names for the 
fruits. When everyone had had a 
turn at trying to twist their tongues 
around these Spanish words, refresh- 
ments of cocoa and cookies were ser- 

This concluded the meeting- which 
had been truly a Spanish meeting, 
with Caroline Hinsey, president, 
carrying on the business part of the 
meeting in Spanish and Julio Mar- 
tinez, secretary, reading the minutes 
in Spanish. 

Students Hold Social 
After Final Grid Game 

A social was held in the junior 
high girls gym and the club rooms 
following the last football game of 
the season against Hutchinson on 
November 18. 

The social, which was highly suc- 
cessful, was planned by the social 
committee. Ping pong, cards and 
dancing furnished the main entertain- 
ment for the evening. 

Refreshments of hot dogs were 
served to the many ACJC students 
and several students from Hutchin-

The football banquet has been an 
annual affair of the Lions Club for 
over twenty years, except for several 
years during the war. 


Tigers Smothered 
By Dragons In 
Last Grid Game 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers went down in defeat, 42 to 0, 
before the mighty Hutchinson Junior 
College powerhouse in the last game 
of the grid season, November 18. 

Taking the opening kick-off, the 
Tigers threw a screen pass to the 
Hutch 39-yard line, but were unable 
to puncture the Dragon line, and 
Hutch took over. In six plays, the 
Blue Dragons marched over for the 
first score. The conversion was block- 

The Dragons could not be stopped 
in the first quarter until they had 
rolled up an 18-point lead. 

The Tigers came back in the second 
quarter to hold the Dragons scoreless, 
and showed considerable offensive 

A third quarter pass, Davis to 
Hatcher, put the Dragons in the lead 
24 to 0. 

The Tiger regulars began leaving 
the game early in the fourth quarter 
and the Dragons took advantage of 
the breaks to score three more touch- 

The Dragons rolled for 324 yards 
by rushing, and another 86 by pars- 
ing, to make a total of 400 yards. 
Their average on punts was 37 yards. 
The Tigers rambled for 100 yards 
rushing and another 123 from pass- 
ing, for a total of 223 yards, punts 
averaging 37.5 yards. 

Fumbles again hurt the Tigers, who 
muffed five times and lost possession 

The Tigers finished the grid season 
with two wins, one tie, and six losses. 
Four of these losses were by one 
touchdown, and another one at the 
hands of a four-year college. 

Cagers Start 
Practice For 
'49 Season 

Offical basketball practice began 
November 19 for this year's cagers, 
although some candidates had been 
working out in the evening for quite 
some time. 

Only five lettermen are back this 
season, and only two of them were 
starters last year, Bill Bartholomew 
and Don Winslow, both of Arkansas 
City. The other three, Don Bohannon, 
Cedar Vale, Frank Hylton, and Nor- 
man Smyer, Ark City, were not re- 
gulars, but saw a lot of action and 
gained considerable experience. 

Several promising out-of-town 
freshmen players have reported, be- 
sides last year's Bulldog lettermen 
who have moved up to junior college. 
Thoce from out of town are Jack Ack- 
lin and Jack Sayers from Cushing, 
Gkla.; Lynne Stephenson, who hails 
from Little River, Kansas..; and Eu- 
gene Kelly from Grainola. Okla. 

Those moving up from the high 
school squad are Don Hollenb^.ck, 
Jim Thomas, Allen Chaplin, and Ralph 

Although these newcomers have 
quite a bit of speed ,they definitely 
are lacking in height. Jack Sayers, 
the tallest, stands onlv 6 feet, 2 inches

Ith Year 

For the seventeenth consecutive 
year, the Mssiah will be presented in 
Arkansas City, December 18, the an- 
nual "Christmas present" of the senior 
high- junior college music depart- 

In 1932 Charles Hinchee and 
Archie San Romani combined their 
efforts and produced Handel's im- 
mortal oratorio, "The Messiah". 

Since the large auditorium was not 
yet in existence, the performance was 
given in the junior high auditorium 
for the first few years. The oratorio 
was presented for two years to capaci- 
tate the large crowds who gathered 
to hear it. 

At first Mr. Hinchee sang both the 
tenor solo and directed the voice pre- 
sentation. Other soloists were obtained 
later, but Hinchee has continued to 
direct it. 

In the seventeen years the Messiah 
has been presented, many soloists have 
been local talent, while a great many 
more have been well known singers 
from other parts. Many have sung in 
the famous Lindsborg "Messiah." 

Each year the chorus averages 250 
singers. Members of the junior college 
chorus, former chorus mem- 

bers, and anyone who has sung the 
Mesiah before may take part. 

"The Messiah", composed by Geo- 
rge Frederick Handel, was written 
in fourteen days. It was first presented 
at Dublin on April 13, 1742. 

Soloists for the 1949 eV»>nt are

Christmas vacation is approaching 
quickly, much more sa than some of 
us realize. Many of. us are right in 
the midst of our Christmas shopping, 
and perhaps a few are smart enoungh 
to have it all done. 

Most of us students are planning 
a quite vacation at home as a sort of 
"breather" in the middle of the school 
year. But Christmas should really 
mean more to us than just a time 
for celebration. We should remember 
the true spirit of Christmas by trying 
to spread cheer to all we meet. Re- 
member ,there are many people in 
the world who arn't able to celebrate 
the Christmas season as we do. So 
by spreading cheer and perhaps or- 
ganizing a caroling group for Christ- 
mas Eve, we young people can show 
that the Christmas season really 
means something to us. — P. L.

numerous other things. An avid golf 
and ping-pong fan, her favorite sport, 
however, is roller skating. Her ambi-

a reporter on Tiger Tales, she is on 
her way. Her favorite color is blue, 
which incidentally goes well with her 
reddish-brown hair. She comes from 
Milton, Kansas, which lies 70 miles 
north-west of there. You may find her 
at 305 No. Fifth, where she is stay- 
ing with several other girls from Mil- 
ton. Her name: Neva Thornbr.o.

dreamy look in their eyes after they 
had heard the talk by Stanley Meinen,

Jucos Have 
Varied Views 

Dr. R. A. Schwegler, consulting 
psychologist employed by the board 
of education and former KU dean, 
talked to the junior college student 
body and also held private conferences 
with those students desiring personal 
consultaion, during the week of No- 
vember 28. 

Reactions of students were varied. 
A few openly disagreed with Schweg- 
ler's ideas and viewpoints, when asked 
their opinion. 

They pointed out that Schwegler's 
views, while useful, were only common 

A large number, composed of those 
who attended junior college or Ar- 
kansas City high school last year, 

Quotes From Dr. Schwegler 

Teachers: "Focal center of further 

Human-Being: "Masterpiece of cre- 
ative process." 

"Each individual has oyer fifteen 
billion nerve cells. Very few individ- 
uals use more than 25 per cent of 
their potential brain power." 

said they thought that repeated visits 
were useless, since nothing new was 
added to his speech from year to year. 

A great many more, however, were 
of the opinion that the things Schweg- 
ler said were important enough to be 
repeated over and over. The majority 
of students seemed quite enthused 
over his talks. 

"Such things are of everlasting im- 
portance, -and I feel that they can- 
not be said too often", said one ACJC 

Dr. Schwegler will return to Ar- 
kansas City schools during the week 
of February 6. He will spend one day 
with junior college, completing pri- 
vate conferences.

Juco Telephone 
Gals Like 
Their Positions 

Notice a familiar voice when the 
operator says "Number please?" You 
probably hear the sweet voice of one 
the four juco gals, Elaine Probst, Don- 
na Livingston, Mary Paine, or Carol 
Crews, who are working as part-time 

The work has its good and bad 
points . Although they all agree the 
work is easy, they bemoan the fact 
that they become big in the wrong 
places. They average $65 every two 
weeks in pay. Working a 40 hour week 
plus, and going to the juco too, calls 
for considerable management on thier 
part in order to have any studying 
time. Among the other tribulations of 
the job are the following types of 
phone users: 

The musically inclined, who burst 
into jolous song the minute they pick 
up the receiver. 

The type who. forgetting the num- 
ber, say "just a minute operator" — but 
take at least 3 minutes to look up the 

Patrons who, when the operator is 
about to say "number please", change 
their minds, dropping the telephone 
on the receiver with a resulting; boom- 
ing click in the operator's ear. (They 
are loved dearly) 

Proud parents who have their 
small offspring give the number, inter- 
pretation requiring great imagination. 

Patrons believing the operator so 
far away that they have to shout and 
conveniently make it possible for all

Juco blood donors are fewer this 
year than last. Out of 103 total for 
the city only 18 were students gave 
their blood o help save a life. 

As a whole there was a larger turn- 
out this year than last year, but not 
from the college, Kenneth Stanley,

checking the records for the Red 
Cross Bloodmobile activities of 
December 1.

Not to be left out is the small boy 
who is dying, "pumped full of lead", 
desperately in need of a "doc". The 
answer usually is "That's too bad." 
Less cruelly received recently was a 
little girl who wanted to talk to San- 
ta Claus. The lines were busy. 

Operators have their favorite "ca- 
ses",one of whom is an elderly lady 
who not long ago made a long dis- 
tance call. Following the call she 
called the operator and asked if her 
call was ready. When ste was told 
she had already completed the call 
she gasped: "Oh, I did?" What did 
I say?" 

Activities Vary As Students 
Plan For Christmas Vacation 

When a few of the juco students 
were asked what their plans were for 
the Christmas vacation, various an- 
swers were given. Some plan to work, 
some plan to go home and others plan 
to spend a "quiet" week at home. 

Among those who plan to work are 
Glenn Brittingham, Elaine Probst, 
Bob Darrough, Kenneth Stanley. Hel- 
en Scammehorn expects to rush home 
to Milton for the Christmas week-end 
and then back to Ark City to her job. 

Bonita Floyd, Joan Floyd and Neva 
Thornbro plan to spend a very rest- 
ful vacation at Milton. Lynne Step- 
henhenson is goinng home to Little 
River, Phyllis Fox to Douglass, and 

Francis Fox to Winfield. 

"Home-bodies" for the holidays will 
include Jo Ann Thomas, Caroline Hin- 
sey, Jane DeVore, Helen Ramsey, 
Richard Marnix, and most other stu- 

Those who intend leaving Arkansas 
City for other parts include Mary 
Lawhon, James Talcon, and Jim Cox. 

Priscilla Laughlin and Don Pringle 
are among those who plan to spend 
part of their vacation studying. 

Barbara Ramsey is undecided about 
her vacation plans. Mildred Marrs is 
going to work on the 4-H banquet. 
Bill Patterson will "eat a lot and get 
fat," and Bob is "going to have one 
big time."

Cop First 

Playing the first western division 
league game, the Ark City Tigers 
went down 51-47, before the tall Hutch 
Dragons, December 9, on the home 

The Bengals lost the ball the first 
four times they had it in their hands, 
and were on the short side of a 30- 
20 score at half time. 

Both teams pratically matched each 
other point for point until only eight 
minutes remained in the game, when 
aided by good rebounding by the en- 
tire team, Chaplin and Sayers started 
dumping them in for the Tigers. With 
less than two minutes to go, the Arks 
rolled up to within three points of 
the Hutch quintet. 

The Tigers looked doomed as the 
Dragons poured six points through 
the hoop, but the gallent Bengals, 
fighting to the last second, pulled up 
within four points of the Dragons as 
the game ended. 

The Tigers lost much of their scor- 
ing power at the free throw line

Speermen Rally- 
To Win 
Thriller 37-36 

Coming out of a first half slump, 
the Ark City Bengals came from be- 
hind to win a thrilling 37-36 ball game 
from the Independence Pirates Dec. 
6, at Independence. 

Being held 21-14 during the first 
half slump, Chaplin hit a lay-up shot 
to start the Tiger rally. Johnson hit 
for three points, followed by six 
straight points through the hoop by 
Chaplin, to put the Tigers within two 
points of the Pirates. 

Both teams began playing control 
ball, and the lead see-sawed back and 
forth for the rest of the game. 

The Bengals lead by one point with 
only 60 seconds left to play. Schap- 
lowsky stole the ball from the Tigers. 
and it looked as if the game was 
sacked by the Pirates, until Don Win- 
slow came down fast to break up the 
play. The game ended with the Tigers 
winning their second game by the 
same score 37-36.

sweet music were important parts of 
the annual Christmas dance honoring 
junior college alumni, held December 
22, in the auditorium-gymnasium.

student council president. Jean Ed- 
wards was accompanist for the musi- 
cal numbers. 

The auditorium was attractively 
decorated with "clouds" of angel hair 
extended from the balcony, and Ru- 
dolph the reindeer, with a red light 
bulb for a nose, was hitched to a 
sliegh. Guests entered by a path out- 
lined by colored stones. Punch was 
served by senior high school boys 
dressed in smart waiter uniforms, and

Past Grads 
Agree On 
Juco's Value 

"ACJC is a very good background 
for a four year college," said Phil 
Parker, j.c. '49, when he was inter- 
viewed concerning the worthwhile- 
ness of our local junior college. 

A number of grads were asked if 
they thought the two years spent in 
ACJC were worthwhile or wasted. 
They were asked if the credits gained 
here were honored in 4-year colleges, 
and what suggestions they could 
give to improve our junior college. 

Most of those interviewed agreed 
that ACJC was indeed worth the 
time spent here. All students who later 
attended a 4-year college said that 
their credits were carried over with 
no exceptions. Opinion is that courses 
taught here are as good as those 
offered anywhere. 

Money Saving Important 

The advantage mentioned most was 
the money involved. Junior college 
costs are only a fraction of those of 
a large cllege while many courses are 
identical./ Another advantage men- 
tioned by one graduate was being 
able to live at home durning these 
first two years of college. 

The suggestion offered by most to 
improve ACJC was a new college 
building. It was generally agreed 
that the facilities here are too 

Should Study Harder 

Claus Thiesen, j.c. '49, said that 
students enrolled in junior college 
should study harder, since good grades 
are very important in larger colleges. 

In a survey of graduates between 
1932 and 1948, taken by Tiger Tales 
last year, selected at random from 
such courses as business, pre-med, 
liberal arts, and others, students made 
the transitioin without any trouble 
whatsoever, whenever work was of 
acceptable quality and the student 
continued in the same field of study. 

Yes, ACJC is worth the time and 
effort spent here, according to past-

Printing Classes 
To Observe 'Week' 
With Open House 

"Say it With Printing — Flowers 

So read the posters advertising 
the printing department open house 
at 7:00 p. m., Thursday, January 19, 
1950, in the print shop in the junior 
high school building. 

The entire week of January 15 to 21 
is nationally recognized as "Printing 
Education Week. It is the 244th birth- 
day anniversary of Benjamin Frank- 
lin, who might be considered the "pa- 
tron saint" of printing. 

The entertainment, said Mr. A. F. 
Buffo, printing instructor, would in- 
clude exhibits, movies, demonstra- 
tions by printing students, contests, 
and free samples of printing done 
by the students. For quite some time 
printing students have been designing 
blotters and the contests mentioned 
will be judging the "best" designed 

This open house is sponsored by 
the Junior College and High School 
Educational Printers Guild and the 
Junior High School Pied Typers Club. 
Buffo is the instructor for all of these. 

Food for Thought: "How well- 
educated would we be without.

Tigers To 
Meet Four 

Jucos may look forward to three 
Tiger home games and one game away 
in the immediate future. January 13 
loyal jucos will see the Tigers on the 
home court go against the Coffey- 
ville Ravens, who have a one win, 
one loss record in eastern division 
play. The Tigers will be making their 
fourth appearance on the home court 
this season. 

Next the Tigers tread their way on 
January 17 at Parsons. Last year the 
Tigers defeated the Parsons Cardinals 
30 to 24. January 20 the Tigers will 
be stalking here the Garden City 
Broncs. who as yet are undefeated in 
western division play. The Dodge 
Conqs will be the Tigers guests 
here January 21. 

Last year at this date the Tigers 
had a no loss, five win record, hand- 
ing defeats to St. Johns, Independence 
Pirates, Coffeyville, Parsons, and El 
Dorado. The team also won second 
in the Chanute invitational tourney, 
losing out to Parsons. At the end of 
the season last year the team had 
a record of 18 victories out of 26 
contests, one of the best records in 
the school's history. Though the pre- 
sent squad's record is spotty, it is a 
team to be feared. 


Tigers Defeat 
Cardinals Here 

The Ark City Tigers reached a new 
scoring high for the season when 
they defeated the Parson's Cardinals 
50-42, at the Auditorium-Gym, Wed- 
nesday, Dec. 14. 

The Tigers were rather slow at 
the start, but as the score began to 
weigh heavy on the Cardinals' side 
the Tigers' scoring duo, Bartholo- 
mew and Chaplin, found the basket 
and began to fill it. At the half the 
Tigers had tied the Cardinals at 25- 

In the second half the Tigers be- 
gan to take the lead and managed to 
stay well out in front for the rest 
of the game. For the last three 
minutes of the game the Arks man- 
aged to keep the ball in their own 
possession though they did not score 
during that time. 

Francis Norris was in on most of 
the rebounds for the Cardinals. Leo 
Parlett was hot in the first half of 
the game for Parsons, hitting three 
shots in a row. Bartholomew and 
Chaplin led the scoring with 17 points 

Thomas Wins Over Probst 
In Ping Pong Finals 

"Red" Thomas blasted his way past 
Elaine Probst, 21-15, 21-15, to win the 
final match of the first semester ping 
pong singles tournament. 

Onlookers credit the win to an am- 
azingly fast back hand, and a fast 

Thomas won the tournament from a 
field of 23, and at no time showed any 
signs of stiff competition. 

The winner of the second semester 
tournament will meet Thomas in a 
play-off for the ping pong champion- 
ship of the year. 

The doubles tournament is scheduled 
to be under way the first week of the 
new semester. All contestants are 
urged to register with Bill Patterson 
as soon as possible .

Tigers Win 
One of Three 
At Parsons 

The Iola Junior College Red Devils 
defeated the Arkansas City Junior 
College Tigers 46 to 33, Dec. 19 in 
a first round playoff of the Parsons 

The Red Devils led 22 to 16 at the 
half, but the Tigers tied the score 
in about six minutes of the second 
half. Iola was not to be stopped and 
pulled awav to win the game, 46 to 

Trout of Iola was high point man, 
gathering 19 points. Hylton and 
Chaplin hit for eight points each for 
the Arks. 

Defeating the Ft. Scott Junior Col- 
lege 56 to 36, the Arks entered the 
consolation finals of the tournament. 

The Tigers held Ft. Scott scoreless 
in the second half for fifteen minutes, 
after leading at half time 30 to 20. 

Big Bill Bartholomew paced the 
Tigers, hitting for 17 points, and 
Chaplin followed closely with 14. 

The Tigers then were blasted from 
the consolation finals 42 to 29 by the 
El Dorado Grizzlies. 

The Grizzlies held the Tigers score- 
less for the first eight minutes of play 
but the Bengals soon caught them 
and for the next 30 minutes it was 
anybody's game. Six quick points by 
El Dorado put them out in front to 
stay. Stalling, the Grizzlies forced the 
Tigers to come out after the ball, 
and capitalized on five free throws 
and possession. 

The Arks had an extremely cold 
night from the field, with both long 
shots and free throws falling a foot 
short of the hoop. 

Allen Chaplin, Ark guard, was 
named to the all-torney team. 

Bengals Lose 
Two Tilts on 
Western Trip 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers were defeated 68 to 55 by the 
Dodge City Conqs, in a high scor- 
ing game Friday at Dodge, and lost 
61 to 49 Saturday night in a two 
game invasion of Western Kansas. 

The Bengals, after a first half 
slump, came back strong and were 
hardly more than five points behind 
until the last two minutes. The Tigers 
were forced to come out after the ball, 
and the Conqs capitalizing on free 
throws and the ball out of bounds, 
pulled away to win the game 68-55. 

Bartholomew was high for the 
Arks, hitting for 16 points. Evans 
paced the Conqs by pouring 31 points 
through the hoop. 

Swinging westward to complete 
their sweep through western Kansas, 
the Tigers dropped a free scoring 
game to the Garden City Broncos, 61 
to 46. 

Garden jumped to an early 7-0 lead 
and was never threatened the rest of 
the game. The Tigers seemed to be 
baffled by a switching zone and man 
to man defense thrown up against 
them by the Broncs, and gathered 
most of their points from their own

High Hopes 
For New 
Juco by 5 51 

Will the ancient dream of a new 
junior college soon come into reality ? 
New hope was given by a recent an- 
nouncement by Dr. Jerry Vinyard to 
the affect that it was hoped a contract 
for the building could be let in July 
or June. While present jucos will not 
be attending college in the new build- 
ing, they will nevertheless be inter- 
ested in the completion of the project 
so that those following them to the 
foutain of knowledge may drink in 
more efficient and attractive surround- 

A number of steps must be com- 
pleted before the contract may be let, 
however. Due to a recent state law, 
architects must be changed. The state 
architect did not license Mr. W. 
Schmidt. Dr. Vineyard disclosed that 
5 licensed Kansas architects have ap- 
plied for the job so far. 

Schmidt's basic plans will not be 
discarded but extensive detailed work 
is still to be done on them, such as 
determining the type and location of 
fixtures, and interior design of the 
various rooms. In connection with 
this many juco teachers are going by 
bus Saturaday to El Dorado to in- 
spect the junior college there, con- 
structed in 1940. Each juco teacher 
has been asked to present a plan for 
the ideal classroom for the subject 
he or she teaches. Countless books 
and magazines have been consulted 
by Dean K. R. Galle and Dr. Vine- 
yard to sucure the most modern and 
efficient in the college. 

Dr. Vineyard stressed the advisa- 
bility of waiting until the hospital 
has been fairly well completed, before 
starting on the new juco building. 
One reason is to prevent an excess 
influx of yorkers into the city. Also 
some have expressed doubt that the 
$350,000 bond issue is sufficient to 
build what the plans call for. 

The proposed building is esti- 
mated to have a capacity of more 
than 400 students. 

Coming Assembly to be 
Student Presentation 

A junior college assembly is sched- 
ualed for February 1. Mr. Allen 
Maag is in charge. Don Bahanon is 
chairman. There will be five speakers, 
to be chosen from Maag's speech 
class. The students will deliver their 
orations as they presented them in 

It is planned to have some musical 
numbers between the speeches. 

Printshop Open 
House Draws 
Large Crowd 

Thursday evening, January 19, the 
printing classes held an open house 
in the print shop of the junior high 
school building. An estimated cixnvd 
of between 175 and 200 attended. 

One of the highlights of the even- 
ing was demonstrations by printing- 
students. They included Bud Childers, 
Fred Menefee, Cecil Hawkins, Jim 
Hall, Richard Cox, Raymond Cockrum, 
Kenneth Wells, Wayne Hayes, Eric 
Lrampton, Duane Palmer, and the 
junior high Pied Typers Club. 

Wayne Davis was declared winner 
of a blotter design contest. Kenneth 
Wells was second and Richard Akers 

Printing samples, book marks, and 
blotters, all made by the printing 
students, were given to the guests. 

A movie was scheduled, but had to 
be canceled because the film did not 

Refreshments of cookies were also 

The Open House was under the 
sponsorship of the junior college and 
high school Printers Guild. It was 
held in connection with Printing week. 
Anton Buffo is the printing instructor. 

A radio program was presented at 
4:30 Wednesday evening by members 
of the high school and junior college 
printing classes. 

Fewer Cuts 
Under New 

It seems the students in ACJC, 
according to reports, have advanced 
along with our civilized world, at 
least in regard to class attendance. 

Could it be that students have be- 
come angels ? Or has the new attend- 
ance rule anything to do with the 
good attendance this semester. 

In the previous years, students were 
issued permits from the office, and 
were not penalized for a limited num- 
ber of unexcused absences, correspon- 
ding to the number of hours carried 
in that subject. Now all excuses are 
allowed by individual teachers and no 
unexcused absences allowed. 

The following is a comparison of 
absences during the first semesters in 

1947, 1948 and the first nine weeks of 

In 1947 there were 36 out of 233 
not absent during the first nine weeks, 
compared to 39 out of 210 in 1948, 
and 67 out of 216 in 1949. 

Ninety-five students in 1949 had 
"good" attendance records, while in 
1948 there were 79, and only 70 in 

The average clock hours missed per 
student in 1947 was 5.73, 5.32 in 1948, 
and 3.42 in 1949 . 

Thirty-seven "problem cases" con- 
fronted the dean during the first nine 
weeks in 1947, compared to 21 in 

1948, and 10 in 1949. 

A "wait and see" attitude is taken 

by most faculty members, concerning 

~the new attendance rule. It is subject 

to change and of experimental nature, 

they have indicated.

Booklet Available 
For Facts About 
Travel Abroad 

Many students have been reading 
about student trips to England and 
Europe during the summer months. 
Some students have been wanting in- 
formation on how they can make such 

Some information about these trips 
comes from a release of the U. S. 
National Student Association made 
by Craig Wilson, Director of Publi- 

"Work Study Travel Abroad 1950" 
has been put on sale by the publica- 
tions bureau, U. S. National Student 
Association, 304 N. Park, Madison, 

The 10,000-word booklet, which 
follows similar booklets for 1948 and 
1949, gives agencies to contact for 
traveling during the summer months, 
outlines their programs and provides 
general year-round facts on going 

The booklet is being sold to stu- 
dents at NSA-member schools for 25 
cents a copy. All others pay 50 cents 
a copy. Students governments and 
campus NSA committees may order 
copies in bulk at greater price reduc- 

The booklet outlines NSA's pro- 
grams abroad as well as those of more 
than 100 other groups that cater to 
student travelers. 

Since Arkansas City Junior College 
is not now a member of the NSA, 
students here must pay 50 cents for 
their copy of "Work Studv Travel

One nosey reporter heard that Don 
Bohanon was critically injured dur- 
ing a scramble for a nickel which 
he dropped behind a pile of chairs 
while trying to buy a bottle of pop 
from the clubroom. This rumor later 
proved false. His pride was all that 
was wounded. 

It was noticed that Mr. Maag had 
moved his seat at basketball games 
to the reserved section. Perhaps it 
was to escape pop bottles and other 
falling debris which chance to hit on 
the head. 

Some time ago, Bob Darrough was 
seen walking down the hall carrying 
a milk pail. When asked the purpose 
of the bucket, he repiled, "Well, Miss

What will your fellow students all 
be doing in the bright new world 
ahead? Who will be another Einstein, 
who another Betty Grable, who an- 
other Artie Shaw, who a madame am- 
bassador ,who a republican president? 
Gather close and gaze into the crys- 
tal ball ,as represented by vocational 
choices listed on college enrollment 

We see first a plurality of juco 
members with intelligent looks on 
their faces teaching a group of 
students. Among them (the teachers)

New Book 
Is Added 
To Library 

A new book has been added to the 
junior college and senior high school 
library. It is "My Three Years in 
Moscow." Its author is Walter Bedell 
Smith, who is former United States 
Ambassador to Russia. 

This is the first full-length ac- 
counting to the American people by 
an American Ambassador to Moscow 
since before the war. It covers three 
crucial years of the cold war and 
Smith's blunt and straight-forward 
account of what he saw and did and 
thought in the world capital of 
Communism, constitutes a first-hand, 
top-level report of the United States 
rerations with the Russians during 
a period of deepening crisis. 

General Smith was in Russia as 
our Ambassador from March, 1946, 
to March, 1949. He was sent there 
because the qualities of intelligence, 
realism, and force which led General 
Eisenhower to call him "the general 
manager of the war" were also those 
which were deemed necessary in the 
man who would represent us in our 
dealings with the Soviet leaders. 

"My Three Years in Moscow" is 
a good deal more than an account of 
diplomatic negotiations. Smith under- 
took to study the whole framework 
of Soviet life — the people, their lead- 
ers and their institutions. In this 
study he had the help of a large and 
well informed staff and. in addition, 
he has had the advantage of closer 
personal contact with Marshall Stalin 
than any other Westerner. 

Here is a partial list of the topics 

Stalin A first-hand portrait of the 

Politburo Acute thumbnail sketches 
of the men who run Russia. 

Religion in Russia An eyewitness 
account of the failure to surpress 

The Propaganda Machine Thought 
control, how it works. 

Goals of Soviet Policy 

Altogether the book is one of the 
important books of our time, distin- 
guished in its character and per- 
manent in historical value.

during the week of January 16 when 
semester examinations replaced re- 
gular class work. Examinations be- 
gan at 8:30 a.m. Monday and con- 
tinued trough the wek until 4:00 p.m. 
Friday. Various opinions, as to the 
complexity of the tests, were heard, 
but everyone seemed to be glad when 
the last one was over. 

Some of the students who live out- 
of-town were fortunate enough to 
have examinations scheduled so that 
they were able to spend some extra 
time at home. "^ 

In the spare moments between tak- 
ing examinations and studying for 
those to come, students took their 
stand in the office to enroll, change 
schedules, or buy books. 

All in all is was a busy week for 
both students and teachers, and the 
results were to be announced on grade 
sards yesterday.

Tigers Away 
For Three 

The Tigers will meet their next 
three foes away from home. Only two 
of the games are divisional. The 
Hutchinson Dragons will be their first 
opponents January 27. In their first 
encounter this year, the Dragons beat 
the home squad 51 to 47. 

February 3, the Tigers will travel 
to El Dorado where they will meet the 
El Dorado squad in a divisional game. 
This will be the first encounter be- 
tween these teams this year. Although 
the El Dorado group to date have two 
wins against three defeats in divis- 
ional play, they were beaten by the 
Dodge City five, while Ark City 
chalked up its only divisional win 
against the Dodge City Conqs. 

February 7, the Jucos will be out to 
confirm an earlier win against St. 
John College. In their first clash this 
season, the Speermen came from be- 
hind in the last minute of play to de- 
feat the Eagles 37 to 36. 

Tigers Dump 
Cardinals 41-35 

The Ark City Tigers blasted the 
Parsons Cardinals 41-35, Dec. 17, in 
a 11011 league game at Parsons. 

The Cardinals took an early lead, 
but the Tigers, aced by "Big Bill Bar- 
tholomew", soon caught up and took 
the lead. Play see-sawed back and 
forth untill the half; which ended with 
Parsons ahead 13-12.

to put the Tigers out in front, to 
never be seriously crowded for the 
rest of the game. 

With time running out, Parsons was 
forced to come out after the Bengals, 
and succeeded in scoring once more 
before the final buzzer. 

The Tigers experienced a very cold 
night, hitting only 15 out of 58 shots 
for a 26 per cent average. Parsons 
gathered only 13 out of 74 shots for 
an 18 per cent average. 

Bartholomew led the scoring for 
the night hitting for 12 points, fol- 
lowed closely by Chaplin with 10 and 
Winslow with 9. Conrad was high for 
Parsons with 10. 



Bengals Down 
Red Ravens 
By 6 Points 

The Juco squad broke into the win- 
ning column, after four loses, by 
beating Coffeyville 38-32, January 

Bill Bartholomew, Jack Sayers, and 
Allen Chaplin sparked the Bengal 
scoring with 11 points, 10 points, and 
9 points respectively. 

Smyer opened the scoring with a 
jump shot in the first seconds of the 
game. Coffeyville then came back to 
build up a five point lead with only 
seven minutes of play gone. Chaplin 
sank two goals and Bartholomew sank 
one to put the Bengals on top again. 

The score remained close for the 
rest of the half with the lead chang- 
ing hands with nearly every counter. 
As the half ended, the home squad was 
out in front 19 to 18. 

The Arks came back fast in the 
second half, gaining a five point ad- 
vantage over the Red Ravens. Sayers 
then dropped a pair of free throws 
through the net to bring the lead up 
to seven points. At this point it looked 
as if the Bengals were well on their 
way to winning . 

Bob Kesler, Raven Substitute, then 
came into the game to smash the 
Ark's lead by sinking his first three 
field shots. This added to two points 
by a teammate, put his squad out in 
front by one point. 

With only 13 minutes left in the 
game, the play became fast and fur- 
ious. The lead changed hands four 
times before the Bengals pulled out 
in front to stay.

Arks Bow To 
Garden, But 
Defeat Dodge 

The juco Tigers were defeated 41- 
34 by the powerful Garden City quin- 
tet Jan. 22, on the Bengals' Home 

At one time it looked as if the 
Bengals' were going to upset the 
highly rated Garden team, trailing 
only by four points with only three 
minutes left in the game. However, 
with the new two minute rule going 
into effect, the Arks were forced to 
come out after the ball and Garden 
capitilized for four more points. 

In the first half Garden possessed 
a nine point lead before the Tigers 
could muster a point. Bartholomew 
broke the ice and the Tigers began 
to slowly creep up on the Garden 
quintet. At half time Garden lead 25 
to 18. 

Rallying in the last six minutes, 
the Arks pulled up within four points 
as the time went into the last two 

Chaplin was high for the Arks, 
gathering nine points, while Horten, 
with ten, was high for Garden.

with a 53-35 rout over the Dodge City 
Conqs Jan. 23- the Tigers avenged 
their earlier loss.

the first period and lead the Conqs 
16-6, but as the half ended the Conqs 
had cut the lead to five points. 

The game ended with the Tigers 
on the long side of a 53-35 score. 

Big Bill Bartholomew paced the 
Aiks with 21 points, while Evans 
and Swesson were high for the Conqs 
with 11 points epiece. 


Girls Gym Class 
Back to Exercises 

The girls in Miss Edith Davis' gym 
class are now back to exercises. Al- 
though the exercises are not stren- 
uous, they do help the girls find mus- 
cles they didn't know they had. 

They had a slight rest from exer- 
cises during the warm weather when 
the girls played golf, although they 
did have to chase a few lost balls. 
Some were hit so hard that they were 
never found. Others, after quite a 
search, were retrieved. 

The girls hope that the new sem- 
ester will bring more girls so that it 
might be possible to play basketball.

Assembly Speaker 
Tells of Atomic Age 

Dr. Luther Gable, Talk-of-the- 
Month speaker, spoke to the students 
and faculty concerning the Atomic 
Age, in an assembly program on 
January 13 . 

He advised students to study plenty 
of math because good mathematics 
would be needed in the new age which 
is now dawning. 

He explained the construction of 
the atom and how it was possible to 
harness its energy. Also, he told of 
various ways in which atomic energy 
is already being used and how 'dif- 
ferent length light waves are used. 

By painting the faces of the cheer- 
leaders with a colorless fluid and 
then shining a black light in their 
faces he demonstrated how it is poss- 
ible to see certain kinds of things 
with the black light which we are not 
able to see with ordinary light. He 
also showed how the color of cloth 
is changed by black light. 

Students comments indicated that 
it was a very interesting and worth- 
while program.

Junior College 
On Increase 

Junior colleges throughout the na- 
tion show an increase in fall enroll- 
ment from 208,000 to 226,000 or an 
8.6 per cent increase, as compared to 
0.9 per cent for universities, a re- 
cent survey by the U. S. Depart- 
ment of Education shows. Total en- 
rollment in all higher educational in- 
stitutions is 2,456, 000 as compared 
to 2,408,000 last year for an overall 
increase of 2 per cent. In a large mea- 
sure this increase is attributed to the 
decrease in student drop-out, since 
both the number of enrolled veterans 
and of new students has sharply de- 

Statistics show junior colleges to 
have a 9.7 per cent increase in en- 
rollment of new or freshmen students 
as compared to a minus 6.2 per cent 
for universities. The two-year col- 
leges also outshine their big: brothers 
in veteran enrollment, showing a 12.7 
per cent decrease as compared to 
16.3 per cent for universities. 

Ranking second to the jucos are the 
teacher colleges which show an over- 
all average increase in enrollment of 
8.4 per cent. 

"ACJC compares favorably with the 
national figures showing an increase 
in enrollment of 7.3 per cent," says 
ACJC Dean K. R. Galle.

Malayan Student 
Desires Admission 
To College Here 

Ouek Seng Hin, a man who lives in 
Malay, recently wrote to Dean Galle 
asking for admittance to Arkansas 
City Junior College. 

Hin has been attending British 
schools and has the equivalent of a 
high school education or more. All 
references presented were good, Galle 
stated. He has won several essay con- 
tests and has passed the Cambridge 
exams, which are put out by Britain. 
Hin wishes to take up civil engine- 
ering for two years in Arkansas City

Cary's recovery will be speedy and 
complete so that he may resume his 
studies in junior college . 

Ottomans and Chairs Being 
Built by Upholstery Class 

Each student in Forrest Haine's up- 
holstery class is busy building and 
upholstering a "lift-top ottoman." 
This is a requared project and "a ver> 
useful object to have around the 
house." Haines avers. 

Instead of just being something to 
put your feet on, these ottomans also 
furnish storage space for different 
articles around the house. The top 
half of these ottomans is hinged and 
can be lifted up, giving access to the 
storage space in the bottom half. Mr. 
Haines says that is an exceptionally 
good place to store snapshots and 
family pictures. This space can also 
be used by the man of the house to 
store shoes, slippers, or smoking 

Jack Ward, juco freshman has 
taken on the job of building a plat- 

form rocking chair. Jack has the 
rocker almost completed and when 
finished, "it will look as good as any 
you could buy at a store," the in- 
structor believes. 

Dick Marnix, college freshman, and 
Bill Miller and Glenn Utt, high school 
students, are developiing what they 
call a "pull-up chair." This chair was 
designed and is now being built by 
these boys. All the newest types of 
material are going into the building 
of the chair, including no-sag springs 
and foam cushion upholstering:. The 
chair goes, together in sections, the 
back, seat, and legs all being con- 
structed as separate units. Then each 
unit is fastened to the other. If their 
plans work out, several of these chairs 
may be. built and placed in the club

New Switch-Boxes 
End College - HS 

The junior college-senior high build-

switch-box system installed. Three 
main boxes, or "bus ways", were in- 
stalled on the ground floor of the

The Ark City Tigers lost to the 
Hutch Blue Dragons, January 27, at

only five minutes of play left, only 
to have it tied again with two minutes 
left. With the score 37-37, Bohannon

was discovered that some circuits were 
overloaded while others were under- 
loaded, causing too much pull on some 
of the fuses. 

In order to change the situation a 
completely new system had to be put 
in. K. G. & E. drew the plans for an 
equalized electric system and Hill 
Electric got the bid at $2,300.

Later Hinchee suggested, that mem-

you expect us to sing that way?"

iness Education club at the second 
annual convention of the organization 
held at Emporia State Teachers Col- 
lege, Feb. 6 and 7. 

A nominating committee selected 
two boys and one girl as candidates 
for president from the more than 200 
representatives from all over Kansas 
Monday afternoon. The Arkansas City 
delegates conducted a vigorous cam- 
paign for Hughes at a 6:30 dinner and 
at a ball held later in the Student 
Union building on the Emporia State 
Teachers College campus. Carl Hol- 
man and A. L. Curry, club sponsors, 
attest that, "the Ark City boys really 
went into their electioneering at the 
dance and this was a main factor in 
getting Jack elected." 

The vote for president was cast 
Tuesday morning at a business ses- 
sion. Jack's election was announced at 
the noon banquet, with the newly- 
named president to be toastmaster. 
Jack was in charge of a meeting of the 
new officers to discuss next year's 
convention. The Associated Press took 
a picture of the officers. 

Jack is to represent the State of 
Kansas at national convention of 
business clubs at Ashville, N. C

He is shown at work in the accom- 
panying picture.

formed of students who are taking: th? 
distributive education course offered 
in junior colleges and senior high 
schools. The club is made up of three 
groups, "Distributive Education", 
"Office Practice" and "Trade and In- 
dustry". The retail stores and indus- 
tries of the city co-operate with the 
school and give jobs to the students 
so that they may have practical ex- 
perience in the field of their interest 
and go to school at the same time. 
Twenty junior college students are en- 
rolled under this_ program. 

Those attending the convention 
from Ark City were Lloyd Gladmati.

Christian Minister Speaks 

At "Day of Prayer" Assembly 

Singing, responsive reading, and 
prayer were group activities at the 
World Day of Prayer assembly last 
Friday morning. The Rev. Dale Sch- 
nelle, pastor of the Central Christian 
Church, was the guest speaker. He 
spoke on the subject, "The Signifi- 
cance of Prayer." 

Charles Hinchee lead the audience

The following statement was cont- 
ributed to Tiger Tales by Charles F. 

Late one night two bandits were 
robbing a local tavern. As they were 
ready to leave one crook said, "Let's 
have a short beer before we go." 

"No, thanks! I don't drink on the 
job", was the other's reply. 


During the recent fire drill, Phyllis 
Fox was overheard making: the state- 
ment that she would volunteer to go 
back in after the janitors. ( ? ) 

Miss Weisgerber was discussing 
education: "When I got out of high 
school I was determined that I'd never 
set foot in another school, and so I 
went to college."

The Juco Tigers will meet the El 
Dodado Grizzlies in their last game 
of the season, tomorrow night. In 
what promises to be a thriller, the 
Tigers will be trying to better their 
league standing, while the Grizzlies 
will be trying to climb out of the 
league cellar. 

In their first encounter this season, 
the Tigers came from behind in the 
last minutes of play to clown the Griz- 
zlies by only one point. 

After playing a cold first round, 
the Bengals have won three of their 
last four divisional games. Their wins 
were over Dodge City, El Dorado, and 
Pratt, with the loss to the strong 
Hutchinson club. 

Should the Arks keep playing this 
brand of ball, it will be a tough game 
for El Dorado to win. However, tall, 
slippery Lininger and the fast Garcia 
of El Dorado are a threat to any op- 

Coach "Bunt" Spear has announced 
that the Bengals have been approved 
for the AAU tournament to be held 
at Wichita, March 4 to 11, with the 
Tigers meeting their first opponent 
either March 4 or 6.

The Tigers pulled themselves out of 
the western division cellar for the 
first time this season by beating Pratt 
47-36, Feb. 10. The Beavers threat- 
ened only once in the last half of the 
game as they closed a 12-point gap 
and pulled to within one point of the 

Johnson started the scoring with a 
free throw and Bartholomew quickly 
tallied with two more points. The Ben- 
gals then proceeded to build up a six- 
point lead with the score 11-5 and only 
six minutes of play gone. 

The Beavers began to close the gap 
and with a seven-point rally pulled 
into the lead 18-17. Chaplin then gar- 
nered five points and Bartholomew 
hit a free shot before the half ended. 
The score was 23-18. 

Coming out fast in the second half, 
the home squad quickly doubled their 
five-point lead, as Bohannon hit two 
from the field and Johnson then ran 
their lead to 12 points with the score

Bengals Bow 
To Coffeyville 
As Jinx Holds 

The Juco Tigers were downed by 
the Coffeyville Red Ravens last Friday 
night at Coffeyville, 51 to 40. Allen 
Chaplin, with his biggest night this 
season, could not make up for the 
coldness of his teammates. 

The game got off to a slow start 
after 6V2 minutes of play the score 
was in a 3-3 deadlock. The score was 
tied again, 7-7, before the Coffeyville 
squad pulled out in front where they 
remained the rest of the game. 

The Tigers came back fast in the 
second half and closed the gap to 
three points as Johnson, Hylton and 
Chaplin each hit goals. 

In the last 10 minutes of play, the 
Red Ravens went on a scoring spree 
and tallied with 22 points while the 
Bengals scored 15. 

Chaplin was high point man for 
the evening with a total of 20 points. 
Bishop and Robinson of Coffeyville 
were next with 12 points each. 

Bartholomew hit a goal. Hunter scored 
the last two points for Pratt as he 
sank a set-up. The score was 38-36. 
In the last two minutes of play, they 
tallied with nine points and the score 
ended 47-36.

At ping pong she is at her best

Another ping pong incident: Just

Last Concert 

Marion Bell, spectacular young sop- 
prano, will present the last program 
in the current Civic Music Concert 
series in the junior high school audi- 
torium, March 29. . 

She has been hailed throughout the 
United States as an outstanding star 
of stage, screen and radio. She sang 
the leading role of Fiona in Bnga- 
doon" witn great success. When she 
began planning for a J own Hall ap- 
pearance, many doubted that she 
would be very well rece.ved since 
concert audiences were much moie 
critical of talent than those attending 
musical programs. However, during 
the 1948-49 Town Hall seaso she 
,m>de her debut and immediately 
bookings started pouring in. 

At the age of eight she won a ladio 
contest program which gave her a one 
year singing spot on a St. Louis 
radio program under the na f* °j 
"TwinkleBell." This was her foimal 
introduction into the world of song. 

Besides radio and operatic work 
Miss Bell has also appeared m seveial

Track, Golf, 
Tennis Set 
To Start Soon 

With the closing- of the basketball 
season, "Bunt" Speer, Raymond Judd, 
and Dale Hanson will combine then- 
respective coaching talents to bring 
a varied spring spoils program to 
Junior College athletics. Speer will 
coach the track squad, Judd will han- 
dle the tennis department, while Han- 
son will be out on the fairway giving 
pointers to his golfers. 

Judd announced Monday that he 
will start working out his tennis squad 
as soon as the AAU tournament was 
completed. Those already signed to go 
out are Jim Thomas, Allen Chaplin, 
John Ogren, Bob Fry, and Al Mc- 

Chaplin and McKeever both have 
impressive high school records, both 
taking second in state singles. How- 
ever, Judd says, "All positions are 
wide open." 

Speer's track squad checked out a 
week ago and have been having daily 
practice except when it is too cold. 

Hanson announces that golf prac- 
tice will begin as soon as the basket- 
ball season is completed and ladder 
play starts next week to determine 
the top four men. 

The junior college has arrange- 
ments with the Country Club which 
allows eight members to play on that 
course. The other members will work 
out on the Spring Hill course. 

Norman Smyer, Jim Smyer, and Bill 
Patterson are back from last year's 
team, while Jack Stark, a freshman, 
shows promise. Others out are Don 
Laingor, Fred Longshore, Duane John- 
son, Jack Ward, and W. Donald. 

Bengals Beat 
Second Time 

The Juco Tigers downed the Inde- 
pendence Pirates here February 21, 
60 to 50. their second win of the 
season over the Eastern Division 

The Bengals had a cold night at 
the free throw line, and collected only 
six of their GO points from that posi- 
tion. The Arks started the scoring and 
never lost the lead. 

Bohannon clicked first with a field 
goal and Chaplin came back for two 
more points. The Tigers then ran 
their lead to five points as the score

Tigers Downed 
By El Dorado 
In Last Game 

The El Dorado Grizzlies came from 
behind in the last minutes of play 
to defeat the Tigers, 47 to 45, last 
Friday night. The loss put the Arks 
in a three way tie for last place in 
the western division, the spot being 
shared by El Dorado and Pratt. 

El Dorado started the scoring by 
sinking two charities and the Ben- 
gals countered with one from the 
field by Bartholomew. The Arks then 
ran up a four point lead as the score 
went to 12-8. 

The Tigers stretched their lead to 
nine points with the score 21-13 and 
still held this lead as the half ended. 
The score was 28 to 19. 

The Bengals, lacking their usual 
burst of scoring, could not stretch 
their lead at the start of the second 
half. They still held an eight point 
lead, 37-29, as the game went into 
the final ten minutes of play. 

At this point El Dorado started 
closing the gap and pulled to within 
three points of the Tigers with the 
score 39 to 36. The Grizzlies puled 
to one point as the score went to 43- 
42, then tied the score, 45-45, with 
only seconds of play left in the game. 

'El Dorado then swiped the ball and 
Hess tallied with the two winning 
points just befoi - e the gun sounded 
ending the game. 

Vanhaverbecker of El Dorado was 
high for the night with 12 points. Hess 
and Datin of El Dorado* tied with 
Bartholomew for second place, each 
tallying 11 points. 

went to 13-8. 

The Pirates started a come back 
and pulled to one point of the Arks 
as the score went to 20-19. The Ben- 
gals then scored five straight points 
to stretch their lead to six points, 
and as the half ended, the Tigers were 
ahead 27-22. 

Coming back in the second half, 
the Bengals doubled their lead as 
the score went to 39-29, then went 
ahead 12 points with the score 43-31. 

Independence staged a futile 7- 
point rally and made the score 45-40, 
hut could not close the final gap. 

Tigers Win, 
Lose One 
At Wichita 

After winning their opening game 
in the AAU Tournament at Wichita, 
the Tigers lost to the Gypsum Mer- 
chants last Monday night. The win 
was over the Newton Nebergall Oilers 
Saturday night. This was the last 
game of the season and the Bengals 
turned in their suits Wednesday. 

The Arks started off fast against 
the Newton squad and at the half they 
held a 14-point lead with the score 

In the second half, they continued 
their scoring spree. The Oilers never 
threatened during the game and the 
score was 48 to 32 at the final gun. 

Chaplin was high with 14 points 
while Bartholomew followed closely 
with 13 points. 

In the second game, the Arks went 
down to the Gypsum Merchants of 
Gypsum, Kan., 47 to 36. The Mer- 
chants used a fast break and managed 
to wear the home team down in the 
last half. 


Myers, Assembly Speaker, 
Talks of Romance of Words 

Dr. Rowland Myers, political ana- 
lyst and veteran of four years with 
the A. M. G. in Germany, was the 
speaker at the regular junior college 
assembly, March 3. 

Dr. Myers spoke on "The Romance 
of Words". In his speech he showed 
how many amusing misinterputations 
had become accepted in today's voca- 
bulary. At home in most European 
langauagts. Dr Myer had a wealth of 
amusing anecodtes and illustrations. 

Dr. Myer also was the "Talk of the 
Mont club" speaker Thursday even- 
ing, when he spoke on the current 
German situation. 


Question now in chorus is "Will 
there be a junior college operetta or 
won't there." Some members have 
devoted a new song to C. L. Hinchee — 
"I'm in Love with You, Honey." But 
the big beekeeper listens only with his 
deaf ear.

Career Day Is 
Set for May 2; 
Invite Seniors 

The second annual junior college 
Career Day is set this year for May 
2, Dean K. R. Galle announced this 
week. The program is under the spon- 
sorship of the junior college faculty, 
with J. Kelsey Day as chairman. 

Under general plans made for this 
year, students will be offered a list of 
vocations for which discussion leaders 
can be obtained, instead of taking a 
survey of what students are interested 
in as was done last year. 

High School Seniors Invited 

"Seniors from surrounding high 
schools will be invited this year," 
Dean Galle said. Outsiders were not 
invited last year while the program 
was in expermental stage. The pro- 
gram will start with a general as- 
sembly and guest speaker. Each stu- 
dent will have a social discussion 
classes to attend, and a social meeting 
hour is planned for sometime during 
the day. 

Experienced Guidance 

"Career Day gives the student a 
chance to learn about fields in which 
he is interested from experienced 
sources," Dean Galle pointed out, "to 
help him to decide on a field in which 
he may be successful." 

New Hedge Will 
Beautify Campus 

The old shrubs along the walks on 
the east and south sides of the high 
school building, which have been re- 
moved, will be replaced with new ones. 
The ground had lost its fertility and 
was dug out and replaced with new 
earth and fertilizer. 

The project is expected to be com- 
pleted this month. The hedge was 
ordered through Moncrief's Green- 

The new hedge will be the same 
as that in Paris Park which does 
not lose its foliage in the winter. 

Galle Re-elected SC Committee 

Dean of Jr. College pj.^ f 

K. R. Galle was re-elected as dean 
of the junior college at the meeting 
of the Board of Education on March 
6. He was given the addition title of 
"Director of Secondary Education." 

H. J. Clark was named senior high 
principal and Harold Loucks was 
named junior high principal at the 
same meeting. 

The board continued it's discussion 
of the plans for the new junior college 


Decline in Number 
of Absences, Fewer 
Problem Cases 

Those presenty attending the junior 
college may have discovered it is wise 
to attend classes, if absence records 
of the last 3 years prove anything. 
Statistics covering first semesters of 
the period were released this week by 
the dean's office. 

Compared to 14 students in '47, 13 
in '48, there were 30 students in '49 
who had no absences marked against 
them. This despite the fact there were 
103 students who had from 1 to 7 
absences compared to 97 and 81 res- 
pectively in the previous two years. 

The percent of students having 
"good" records increased from 40.8 in 
'47, to 43.8 in '48 and 61.5 in '49, while 
the problem cases have decreased from 
60 and 52, respectively, to only 23. 

This decline in absences has of 
course precipitated a decline in clock 
hours missed from last year's 2,776 
to 2,036. This is an average of 9.42 
hours per student to '48's 13.2. 

From these figures one might con- 
clude that junior college students are 
becoming more moral and upright, or 
perhaps just smarter. As Dean K. R. 
Galle pointed out, one of the first 
things employers check on for a pros- 
pective employee is his or her at- 
tendance record in high school and 
junior college. 

'50 Tigerama 

Plans for that main spring event, 
the Tigerama, are now underway. 
Tigerama festivities will be held this 
year on April 14 in the auditorium- 
gymnasium. "Cindy's Ball," a modern 
version of the Cinderella story, has 
been chosen as the theme. 

Committe heads who have been cho- 
sen by the social committee are Mary 
Swearingen, reception; Warren Isom, 
decoration; Delores Morton and Jane 
DeVore, refreshments; Bill Patterson, 
clean-up; Al McKeever, program; and 
Carol Jo Koeller, invitations. 

Invitations will be sent to seniors of 
the local and surrounding high schools 
and to alumni. 

Dance music will be furnished by 
Herb Jimmerson's band. 

Other arrangements have not been 
completed but all committees are 
beginning work. 


Teachers of Today Give Tea 

For Teachers of Tomorrow 

Junior college and senior high stu- 
dents who are interested in becoming 
teachers were intertained with a tea 
by the Delta Kappa Gamma in the 
high school library, March 9. 

Miss Helen Leach discussed teach- 
ers from an older student's viewpoint. 
She presented four elementary stu- 
dents who discussed what they dis- 
liked about teachers. Mrs. Florence 
Goforth discussed teachers from a 
teachers viewpoint and W. H. Ireland 
spoke from a parent's viewpoint. 

Mrs.Faye Wallack was chairman of 
the program committee and Miss Anne 
Hawley of the refreshment committee. 

Punch and cookies were served be- 
fore the program. 


"This class reminds me of a Texas 
steer," said Paul Price, " a point here 
a point there and a lot of bull between.

Big Thrill in Seeing 
Home Towners at 
Regional Tourney 

During the week of March 6 a few 
students may have been seen going 
aiound school with happy smiles on 
their faces and saying:"Guess what, 
my home-town basketball team is go- 
ming to the regional tournament!" 

Some had expected their teams to 
come, but to others it was just a wild 
dream come true. 

First they had "sweat out" the 
district tournaments because those de- 
cided whether teams would get to 
come. They had to take first or second, 
though sometimes third place is in- 

The finally the big day of the tour- 
nament arrived, the big day when all 
the folks from home were here. The en- 
joyment of showing the kids one went 
to school with, the school here, the 
city, and introducing them to the folks 
down here is a great thrill. 

Yes, it's a big day when your home- 
town basketball team comes the re- 
gional tournaments. — NLT 

Mrs. Moncrief is Guest of 
Honor at Spanish Club 

Mrs. Willard Moncrief was the guest 
of honor at the Spanish Club meeting 
held at the home of Caroline Hinsey, 
club president. Mrs. Moncrief played 
two piano solos: "Malaguena," by 
Ernesto Lucauno. and "Dance in the 
Patio", by Charles Reper. 

The topic of the evening's discus- 
sion was Chile. Caroline showed letters 
and pictures of Chile which she has 
received from her Chilean pen-pal, 
Marina Pino. 

Play practice of "The Romantic 
Age" was flowing along jolly well in 
the long love scene between Roger 
Warren and Mae Ellen Bossi when 
Mae Ellen missed a cue! 
Roger: "May I kiss your fingers?" 
Mae: "Who else if not my lord?" 

Roger: "May I kiss your lips? 

your lines?" 

Rhetoric students may be interested 
in knowing how fortunate or unfort- 
unate they are as compared to stu- 
dents in other colleges. At Kansas 
University, for instance, this is what 
they are doing, according to Jean Me- 
Ginnis, who breezed into town re- 

Up there they use "Writing and 
Thinking", as here, but a book en- 
titled "Factual Prose" in place of 
"American Traditions". In addition 
they have studied several plays by 
Shakespeare, including "Twelfth 
Night" and "King Henry IV." Instead 
of Conrad they have been studying 

"John Brown's Body" by Benet. Also 
says Jean, "We write-themes, themes, 
themes, and themes." 

Jean was graduated from the high 
school here with theclass of '49, as 
were most ACJC freshman. 

— No Further Please — 

It was at the play cast party at 
Mary Lawhon's home following the 
play. Mr. Lawhon on bended knee be- 
fore Belva Tipton emoted:

Galle To Attend 
National AAJC Meeting- 
Dean K. R. Galle will attend a meet-

in Roanoke, Virginia, March 26-29. 

This is to be a meeting of about GOO 
junior college representatives. There 
will be general group sessions with 
noted speakers and sectional meetings 
led by committee chairmen. 

The junior college players presented 
"The Romantic Age", a three - act 
comedy by A. A. Milne, in the junior 
high auditorium last Friday evening. 

The characters gave excellent por- 
trayals of their parts. They included: 
Roger Warren, Maellen Bossi, Robert 
Darrough, Priscilla Laughlin, Mary 
Lawhon, Don Pringle, Carolyn Hin- 
sey, James Halcomb, and Michael 

Roger Warren was excellent in his 
role of Gervase Mallory, who was 
in love with Melisande, portrayed by 
Maellen Bossi. Both gave superior 

Bobby Coote, played by Robert Dar- 
rough switched his affections from Me- 
lisande to her cousin, Jane, enacted 
by Priscilla Laughlin. Robert Dar- 
rough, as a respectable young man 
with a good job, and Priscilla as a 
shy and timid girl were equally good 
in their roles. 

Mary Lawhon played the part of 
Melisande's mother, whose one wish 
was to get her daughter married be- 
fore she died. Mary had the grace of 
a veteran on the stage. 

Don Pringle gave a convincing por- 
trayal of Melisande's quiet but out- 
spoken father.

Spring Sports 

In Full Swing 

With the basketball season offic- 
ially over, spring sports are now in 
full swing. Raymond Judd and Dale 
Hanson posted their call for tennis 
and golf last week, while the track 
squad has been working out regular- 
ly for the past three weeks. 

Although the golf schedule is still 
incomplete, Hanson announced that 
his squad will play matches with 
Coffeyville, Independence, Parsons, 
Iola, and St. Johns. 

Judds tennis team will meet it's 
first opponent, Tonkawa Junior Col- 
lege, April 4 at Tonkawa. They will 
then meet Hutchinson the next day. 
Judd also plans to enter his group 
in the Hutchinson tournament and the 
Junior College State Meet before the 
season is over. 

Coach spear's track squad has been 
getting into shape for the past three 
weeks. There are several of last year's 
trackmen back and a host of freshmen 
who show promise. 


Independents Take 
Grenola Tourney 

A group of junior college students, 
calling themselves the Arkansas City 
Independents, entered and won the 
20th annual Grenola basketball tour- 
nament last week. 

In their first game, they trampled 
the Severy Athletic club, 51 to 26. 
Chaplin was high man with 17 points. 

The Independents then downed Tis- 
dale in the quarter finals, March 16, 
62-47. The Ark City group got off to a 
slow start, but weren't threatened in 
the last half. 

In the semi- finals, the Independents 
went on a scoring spree to beat the 
Moline Merchants, 77 to 44. Chaplin 
was again high with a total of 29 

In the final game last Saturday 
night, the Independents copped the 
bunting by beating the Sedan Athletic 
Club, 47 to 40. 

Members of the squad included Bill 
Bartholomew, Don Winslow, Jim John- 
son, Allen Chaplin, Frank Hylton, Don 
E. Lewis, and Joe Fife. 

The Club Rooms 

Crowds shuffled by the wide door- 
way emitting the blaring noise, some 
pausing to enter and descend. I was 
in a carefree, jovial mood, so I thought 
why not go into this sub-street hall, 
even if it was called the "den of in- 
iquity,'" — the club room. 

To the beat of "Slaughter on 10th 
Avenue" I descended the steep steps, 
the music becoming menacingly louder 
as I went deeper into the earth, drawn 
like a mouse to a mouse-trap. A sort 
of haze filled the place, yellowish, re- 
flected from the pale green walls. 

Raucous laughter, the shuffle of 
cars, the rough scrape of chairs, and 
the click of bottles was heard in the 
distance. Suddenly I burst into the 
room and swaggered over to a chair. 
Then I saw her. 

We stared at each other in dis- 
belief, in wonder, in amazement. She 
was breathtaking, like a spring morn, 
like roses and dew. I decided to play 
her — unable to control myself. ..I had 
her in my grasp, I clutched her jea- 
lously, only vaguely noticing the glare 
in the eye of the animated man far 
to one side of the clamoring room. I 
went on, enruptured. overcome, slyly 
planning my next move, when it hap- 
pened — when I felt the short strike 

I crumpled to the floor, letting her 
slip from my hands, like jelly from 
bread. I was dead. But I could con- 
sole myself. I had held a double run 
and double pinochle, and the evil mis- 
sile, the ping pong ball, was busted. 

Marjorie Ghramm reported on the 
plans that have been made by the 
social committee for the Tigerama. A 
committee was chosen to investigate 
the possibilities of getting new furn- 
iture for the clubs rooms.

See Gal's Gym Class 

If any of you want to see perfect 
form in golf, or the correct way to 
serve for badminton, just look up 
any of the juco girls gym class, for 
that's what they see and practice 
twice a week. If you want to see the

Mason, Bobby Hawkins. Ardelia Reser, 
Jane DeVore, Carrie Webb, Dolores 
Morton, and Betty Webb. 

If anyone hears an outlandish com- 
motion coming from the library, it 
might be caused by Allen Chaplin

Allen entered the library recently,

Former Jucos 
Make Honor Rolls 
At 4-year Colleges 

Are you worrying for fear that you 
will not be able to keep up with 
other students when you tranfser to 
a four year college? If so, stop, look 
and listen! 

Last semester nearly all of the 
Arkansas City students who were 
named for honor rolls at four year 
colleges were either former ACJC 
students or graduates. 

ACJC graduates named for the 
honor roll at Southwestern were Gar- 
old Gregory, Donald Gribble, and 
Harry Keller. Freshman transfer 
students on the roll were Emmet 
Smith and John Thomas. Another 
honor roll student was Ralph Rosen- 
crantz who transferred after three 
semesters in ACJC. 

At Kansas University, graduates 
named were Michael Wayne Justice 
and Elwood Keller. Also on the honor 
roll was Diane Danley who transferred 
after her freshman year in ACJC. 

Three ACJC graduates were named 
as distinguishted students at Qkla. 
A. & M. These were Robin Ledeker, 
Robert Burton, and Barbara Williams. 
Sue Ledeker Stephens was a fresh- 
man transfer student who was named. 

Particularly outstanding work 
was done by Burton, whose record 
shows that he made all A's in the 
20 hours of courses in which he was 
enrolled last semester. He is again 
enrolled in 20 hours this semester. 


SPECIAL: Two slightly used frog 
legs. Cheap. Anyone interested should

D. C. Stark to Kyle Crawford, who 
had gone to sleep in class: "Now 
there is a catalyst for you. Put him 
in the sun, and immediately he goes 
to sleep." 

One evening while visiting Don 
Bohannon, Dick Foote began arrang- 
ing various articles on the floor. The 
articles included a Time magazine, 
shoe shining rag, whisk broom, flex- 
ible ruler, broken ping pong ball, ma- 
tches, and house slippers. As soon 
as he had finished arranging them he 
stepped back to cast an approving 
glance of his work. 

"There', he said, "is a good example 
modern art." 

The other day, Paul Johnson sug- 
gested to the students in one of his 
classes that they might burn a little 
midnight oil. 

That afternoon when Mr. Johnson 
returned to his classroom, he found 
on his desk a small bottle of dark 
fluid labeled "Midnight Oil." 

Dr. Schwegler To Make 
Final Appearance April 17 

Dr. R. A. Schwegler will make his 
final appearance here for this school 
term during the week beginning April 
17. This is the last opportunity for 
those who are interested in holding 
private conferences. Juco students who 
are still interested may still make ap- 
pointments in the college office. 

Dr. Schwegler is an outstanding 
authority in the fields of psychiatry 
and he attempts to help people learn 
to analyze their own problems and get 
the most out of their lives.

Suppressed Desires 
Is Presented at 
Juco Assembly 

The junior college forensic team 
under the direction of A. E. Maag, 
presented a two act comedy, "Sub- 
pressed Desires", at the regular jun- 
ior college assembly March 22. 

"Suppressed Desires" concerns a 
psycohology-minded wife who gives 
a "psychocomedanalysis" of her sis- 
ter and husbands dreams. She is a 
confirmed beliver in psychoanalysis 
until the real analysis of her husband 
and sister's dreams backfire to spoil 
her own plans. 

The play was presented at the 
forensic meet in El Dorado March 24 
and received a second place. Mary 
Swearingen played the part of the 
wife, Walt Rickel, her husband and 
Margaret Dore, the sister.

New Furniture 
For Club Room 

New furniture has finally been pur- 
chased for the club room. Those clas- 
sy slat chairs and that swell table 
are only the beginning, however. Four 
other metal chairs have been pur- 
chased and are to be delivered soon. 

The furniture was purchased from 
Parmans by the student council. The 
committee included Bill Himes, Mar- 
jorie Ghramm, and Maellen Bossi. 

Metal chairs were chosen for their 
durability and ability to withstand 
the rough treatment which clubroom 
, furniture receives. 


Banquet To Be 
Held April 25 

The "International Banquet" will 
be held April 25. It is a dinner for the 
three language clubs and college 
speech class-. 

It is an annual a_ffair, established in 
1947. Each club ha*s a part of the pro- 
gram and one of the language clubs 
gives a ten-minute play. 

The first year, the French club gave 
the play "The Necklace", by de. Mau 
Passant, in French. 

In 1948, the German club gave, in 
German, a 16th century farce by Hans 
Sachs, "The Traveling Student." 

Last year "The Sunny Morning", by 
Quinteros, was given in Spanish by 
the Spanish club. 

This year the German club will 
again give the play. Miss Pauline 
Sleeth's speech class will present the 
same play in English. 

Miss Anne Hawley, modern lan- 
guage instructor is faculty advisor of 
the language clubs. 

Repair Battalion." He entered junior 
college in October of this year. He 
went out for football this year, but 
because of his late start, he didn't 
play any. He plans to go out again 
next year. 

The blessed event was September 
11, 1926, in Eureka Springs, Ark. He 
attended high school there and at 
Washburn Mo., and at Winfield, where 
he was graduated in 1944. 

Charles added that he was open 
for telephone calls from 3 to 6:30 
p.m., but he failed to leave his tele- 
phone number. 

New Coach 
To Be Here 
Next Year 

Students returning to junior col- 
lege next fall will find a new coach 
on the faculty. W.. G. "Bunt" Speer 
will have an assistant to help whip 
the boys into shape for football, bas- 
ketball and track. 

"A great many applications have 
been received and more are coming in 
every day, but as yet we have not 
decided on any one person," Supt.. 
J. J. Vineyard said Monday. 

Another change in the local school 
system is to be the addition of five: 
teachers to the local grade school's.. 

Dr. Vineyard says that if it is at 
all possible, he wants the new teachers 
to be young men. It is the plan tO' 
place one in each of the grade schools 
to supervise boys' activities. It is also' 
hoped that there will be continued 
cooperation with the city's organza- 
tioia of junior police. 

If these plans are realized, there 
will be a man in each grade school 
to supervise boys' activities, two< 
coaches in junior high, three coaches 
in senior high, and two coaches in 
the junior college. 

"We hope in this way to be able 
to care for the atheltic interests of 
the boys all through their schooling,"' 
says Dr. Vineyard.

Administrators Cool to Bid by 
National Juco Athletic Body 

An unsucessful bid for member- 
ship in the American Association of 
Junior Colleges was made by the 
National Junior College Athletic 
Association, at the 30th annirersary 
convention of the A.A.J.C. Dean K. 
R. Galle, who attended the convention 
at . the Hotel Roanoke, in Roanoke, 
Va., March 26-29, reported the action 
on his return Saturday. 

The educators turned down the ap- 
plication of the athletic organization 
because they questioned the policies 
and practices of the unofficial coaches 
group, Dean Galle said. Further con- 
ferences will follow and application 

will again be made, but Dean Galle 
noted a coolness of administators to 
national tourneys and meets. 

Problems of adminstration and cur- 
riculum development were a major 
topic of disscussion. 

Next years' convention will be held 
at Des Moines, Iowa, with Eugene 
Chaffee of Boise Junior College, the 
new president. 

Many of the junior colleges of the 
South were represented. Most south- 
ern junior colleges are either privately 
owned or church supported. Dean 
Galle noted, whereas in Kansas most 
junior colleges are publicly supported.

of sports, and "anything that's fun."

Another war is the most common 
fear among 150 Arkansas Citians in 
every age group, according to a re- 
cent poll taken by Vivian Milam, Juco 
sophomore. The poll, which covered 
persons of high school age, collegians, 
and adults, was conducted as research 
for her term project in sociology. 

In the adult group the possibility 
of war was first with 70 per cent of 
those polled listing it as a fear. Second 
was "children's futures" which had 15 
per cent. 

Among junior college women, chan- 
ces for a successful marriage was the 
main worry, with 60 per cent naming 
it as one of their fears, and second, 
with 20 per cent, was the fear of soc- 
ial non- acceptance. Fear of war held 
a fourth place. 

With college men the thought of a 
successful marriage concerned only 5 
per cent, but the fear of another war 
was strong with 70 per cent listing it. 

High school girls do not seem to 
worry much about a successful mar- 
riage concerned only 5 per cent, but 
the fear of another war was strong 
with 70 per cent listing it. 

High school girls do not seem to 
worry much about a successful mar- 
riage but 55 per cent named social 
non-acceptance and 20 per cent placed 
"speaking before a class" as second. 
Lack of opportunity for personal rec- 
ognition was. the most prominent fear 
of 55 per cent of the high school boys, 
while war was second" with 30 per 

"While taking the poll," Vivian said, 
"I found that co-operation with the 
junior college students was best. 
Adults would try to convince m'e that 
they had no worries until I had talked 
to them for a while. Many high school 
students took the whole matter as a

English Literature Class Uses 
All Possible Thought Vehicles 

Members of Miss Pauline B. Sleeth's 
English literature class, as part of 
their class work, will attend in a group 
April 20 the academy award movie of 
Shakespeare's tragedy, "Hamlet", 
which stars Laurence Olivia. This will 
be the first time a college literature 
class has attented a popular movie 
as part of the course. 

Another interesting and popular in- 
novation in theEngiish literature class 
has been the use in recent years of 
records of Shakespeare's plays, in- 
cluding "Twelfth Night", "Macbeth". 

"Other record albums of his plays 
will be purchased as the money be- 
comes available," Miss Sleeth stated. 
With the albums come booklets 
through which the class can follow the 
shortened play as records are played 
The books also contain the history of 
the play, of drama in general, and of 
the life of Shakespeare. Orson Welles 
is one of the star performers in both 
albums. Along with Roger Hill, he is 
the producer and arranger of the plays, 

using the trade mark, "The Mercury 

While movies and record ablums 
have their advantages, members of the 
class have discovered reading the 
plays aloud in class has its advant- 
ages, too; for instance, hearing Joan 
Coulson; Norma Baker and Delores 
Morton chasing violently after men, 
begging them to be theirs, as in "A 
Midsummer Night's Dream"; or hear- 
ing Victor Milam and Leo McNair 
make flambuoyant love. 

Students are finding the lines very 
amusing and true to life today. 
Shakespeare was free in the use of 
words, phases and thoughts which 
show he is a writer for all periods. 

Instead of regular textbooks class 
members have purchased at local book 
stores 25c pocketbook editions of 
Shakespeare's comedies and tragedies. 
After seeing the movie of "Hamlet" 
the class will read the play aloud. 
April, incidentally, is Shakespeare's

Dr. D.L. MacFarlane 

Talks in Assembly- 
Through frequent peals of laugh- 
ter jucos heard an enjoyable informal 
talk April 11, by Dr. MacFarlane\ 
president of Kansas Teacher's College 
at Emporia. Anyone who had the be- 
lief that the talk would be boring or 
super-serious soon changed their op- 
inions. Students received a string of 
anecdotes, witticisms and jokes which 
were skillfully fitted together to form 
a unified speech. 

If serious portent was intended for 
the speech it came mainly in the 
thought, laugh at yourself, your mis- 
takes, and don't take yourself too 
seriously. He pointed out also that the 
university at Emporia cost Emporians 
and Kansans only around 3 and % 
cents per person a year. 

It became fairly evident following 
the introduction by Supt. Jerry Vine- 
yard, that Dr. MacFarlane derived 
great joy and interest from his Scotch 
ancestry. He told several jokes con- 
cerning the proverbial Scotch penny- 
pinching trait. As a typical Scotty, he 
poked fun at the English to the limit. 
Until 1932, Dr. MacFarlane noted, he 
had lamented the fact that he could 
never become president, since he had 
been born in Scotland, coming to 
America at the age of five. 

Jucos will be eagerly looking for- 
ward to a return visit to Ark City by 
Dr. MacFarlane, the elocutioneer, who 
as he repeatedly stated, is not a cattle 


Miss Co-Ed

Miss Co-ed for this issue is one 
everybody should know, for she was 
born 19 years ago. 

She is five feet four inches tall, has 
black hair and brown eyes, and a 
cheery smile for everybody. 

Taking pictures is her hobby. She 
graduated from senior high in 
'48 and is now a juco sophomore. She 
must be rich, because she is the trea- 
surer of both the Speech club and the 
French club. 

Miss Co-ed is taking a business 
course, and after her graduation from 
junior college in May, she plans to 
attend the University of Los Angeles.

Assembly Committee Presents 
Impressive Easter Program 

Junior college students 1 assembled 
in the junior high auditorium April 6 
for an impressive E ! aster program. 
The program was planned by the pro- 
gram committee assisted by Miss Vir- 
ginia Weisgerber. Devotions were led 
by Bill Himes, Jane DeVore and Jim 
Cox. Members of C. L. Hinchee's col- 
lege chorus class sang several num- 
bers, including "Hallelujah Amen", 
"In The Garden of Gesthemane", and 
"For God So Loved The World". 

Recently Tiger Tales mentioned 
what books were being used in rhe- 
toric classes at K.U. No comparison 
was intended or should be made on 
the value of a class here , and else- 
where on the basis of books used, as 
no two colleges use exactly the same 
texts. "These differences among col- 
leges in the books used is considered 
by many a good thing," Miss Virginia 
Weisgerber pointed out. 

"A popular fallacy also is that 
teacher's in a large university are 
necessarily better,' noted Miss Paul- 
ine B. Sleeth. "According to catalogues 
of any large university it is evident 
that freshmam and sophomore classes 
are very often taught by inexperienced 
people working as assistants while 
working for their masters or doctors
