DEDICA liON . . .

To one who has dedicated his life to Chris··

tian education, to one who has had a profound

influence in directing youthful lives

into noble paths, to one whose quiet life

speaks louder than many sermons, to one

who is deeply loved and respected at home

as well as at school and in the community,

to one who is a grea t a thlete and a real

sport . . . to our beloved Coach M. E.

"Pinky" BERRYHILL this 1954 PETIT

JEAN is respectfully dedicated.

MURIL ERVIN BERRYHILL was born May 4, 1911,

at Rochester, Texas. After graduating from the

Knox City (Texas) High School and working for two

years, he entered Harding College and received the

B.A. degree in history in 1934. He was an outstanding

athlete during his college days and was president

of his class for the last three years.

His graduate training was received in George

Peabody College, Nashville, Tennessee. In 1937 he

was granted the M.A. degree in history and that fall

he returned to his Alma Mater as coach and history

teacher. By 1942, when his education and work with

Harding College was interrupted by World War II, he

had almost completed requirements for the Ph.D.

degree in physical education.

During 1942-44 he was a civilian instructor in

the United States Army Air Corps and during 1944-46

he served in the United States Navy. Since Septem-

ber of 1946 he has been Professor of Physical Education

and Health and Chairman of the Department at

Harding College.

Professor Berryhill is a deacon in the College

church of Christ. He assisted in the organization of

Camp Wyldewood and has served on its Board of

Directors. He is founder and director of the IILittJe

Major Leaguers" in Searcy. He holds membership

in both the state and national Association for Health,

Physical Education and Recreation and in the College

Physical Education Association. He is a member of

Pi Gamma Mu, Phi Delta Kappa and Kappa Phi

Kappa.

In August following his graduation from college

in 1934 "Pinky" married his college sweetheart

and classmate - Rheba Stout of Russellville, Alabama.

The Berryhills have four children - Donnie,

Nita Jean, Dickie and David.

FOREWORD .. .

There are very few real memories of a college year that

can be photographed and printed on the pages of a yearbook.

Pictures of chapel, meal lines, and club functions are taken,

but they become worthwhile only because of the small but

important events they recall- the ideas you gained in chapel,

the friends you met in meal lines, and the shocked moment

when you fell into a cold creek on a club outing. You, as an

individual, will have to fill in these pages with remembrances of

your part of the 1953-54 year at Harding.

Some things you have learned - some things you have

forgotten-and it is the purpose of this book to try and record

for future enjoyment perhaps the most eventful year of your

life.

Hoping this meeting of ideas with printer's ink and paper

has in some measure accomplished its purpose, we present

this 1954 PETIT JEAN to the student body for whom it was

created.

...... ADMINISTRA nON-AUDITORIUM BUILDING

THE CAMPUS ...

This year marks a special year for Harding College. In terms of

years - it is the thirtieth year this institution has existed under that

name, since the merger of Arkansas Christian College and Harper

College at Morrilton, Arkansas, in 1924, and it is also the twentieth year

for it to be located on the present site, having moved to Searcy in 1934.

Since that time succeeding classes have seen the campus take on a

completely new appearance.

Perhaps more than any other, the new Administration Building

with its modern, attractive auditoriums, offices, and classrooms is

symbolic of the changes we, the class of '54, have seen on the Harding

campus. When we arrived as Freshmen, Godden Hall, despite the

fact that it appeared ready to collapse, was the center of campus activities.

Here we went to chapel, which was divided into two sections

because seating was inadequate; we waited eagerly for the mail here;

and here many of us received our introduction to dormitory life.

When we returned for our sophomore year, all that remained of

Godden was a huge pile of dirt; this year we walked to the College

church each day for chapel; we went to plays in the Academy's auditorium

- and we looked forward to the day when the new Ad Building

would be completed.

By the time our Junior year began, the new campus was complete

except for the American Studies Building, the Bell Tower, and a few

relatively minor details such as sidewalks.

Today the Bell Tower, erected with material from Godden Hall

and containing the bell once housed in Godden, exists as a memorial of

the campus of the past. ... But serving as a stronger link with the past

is the spirit of Harding which has not changed.

THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES ...

Though seldom seen on our campus and little known

by students, the board of trustees are men devoted to the

precepts of Christianity who contribute liberally of their

time, energy, and ideas to assure the efficient administration

of the college. It is through the interest of these busy

m en in our college that policies and principles are determined

and H arding continues to m a ke progress as an

institution of Christian education .

WITH the growth of a college the responsibility

of the administrators increases many fold and

especially that of the executive. For this reason,

Dr. Benson has added to his staff of executive

assistants capable men who will provide the energ-y

and leadership he has sho\\'n these many years in

service to the college. Working with them arc the

other indespensible members of the team who are

both guides and friends to those who will know

them.

ALSO AT THE beginning of each year , students who

need financial assistance arrange with the work coordinator

for jobs. After standing in lines for hours

and filling out many forms, jobs are assigned in the

THE FRESHMEN ...

IT COULD 'have been due to an exceptional crop of new

students, or perhaps to a new wave of enthusiasm that permeated

campus activities this year, but whatever the cause,

the Freshman Class proved one of the most progressive and

promising classes to enter Harding of recent years. No

sooner had the flurry of registration week subsided than a

new rush was on, this time to elect Freshman class officers.

Banners appeared over night proclaiming "Hayes for President"

and "What We Need is Rain and Richardson!" Evidently

this timely appeal proved good psychology because,

as predicted, this new class found capable leadership in Dick

Richardson, and he in turn found his way to the fish pond

with the aid of cheerful supporters.

Their Committee of Recommendations and Suggestions

to the Student Council made thirty suggestions during the

year and received recognition in Chapel, the Bison, and from

the Student Council. Flowers and get-well cards cheered

a large number of classmates, and new freshmen received

letters of welcome at the second semester and were honored

by a reception party in· the Emerald Room. Big events included

a Hobo Party and spring outing for the class and as

a reminder of their interest in Harding, they contributed

a gift everyone could enjoy.

THE SOPHOMORES ...

REJOICING that they were no longer "green

freshmen," one hundred forty-seven sophomores

vigorously began the year's activties. The first

class meeting resulted in the election of Winfred

Wright as president, C. L. Cox as vice-president,

and Betty Nossaman as secretary-treasurer. Jeanne

Bankston was chosen representative to the Student

Association.

Since busy schedules ruined the plans for a

fall party, the outing at Camp Tahkodah on April

12 was really a big event. Providing transportation

were: Tommie Potter, Harry Boggs, class sponsor

Bob Meyers, and Jim Smith who took fifteen in the

back of his pick-up truck. At Tahkodah the group

enjoyed hiking, playing softball and football, and

eating the food prepared by Jane Claxton and Joann

Hartman, also, unforgettable arc such moments

as that when Ralph Odom gracefully fell

into the water or that when Harry discovered a flat

tire.

The class project for the year was purchasing

a phonograph and assorted records for the dining

hall.

CLIFF GANUS,

Class Sponsor

THE JUNIORS ...

DESPITE the weather, the Junior-Senior Banquet was not

"all wet." However, one might say it was rather "grccn"­

but that was to be expected on the day following St. Patrick's

Day - especially when the program plainly read "An Irish

Holiday" and "Ken O'Noland, Master of Ceremonies." Included

on the evening's agenda was the address by Dean

Sears, Charles Pittman's "squish, squish" reading of the

Senior class history, Jane Sutherlin reading the Junior composition-the

Senior prophesy, Norman Hughes announcing

the Senior will, and several Irish numbers sung rather unconvincingly

by the Junior quartet. And then there were

the problems of place cards and suitable "dinner music,"

but all was well as it ended well. Naturally the banquet was

the Big Event of the year for the Juniors, but they did have

a fall outing - on the Monday the drought was broken.

Not to be bothered by a little thing like rain, the class merely

changed the outing site from Latona to Wyldewood. Here

everyone, including the girls, played football, not to mention

the usual hiking, softball games, and eating. It was wonderful

to see how Cliff.Ganus, the class sponsor for the second

year, fitted in with these activitics - cspccially the latter

onc·named. And by afternoon thc sky cleared and thc class

probably went on record as the first to cnjoy two outing

sites in one day, driving to Latona for further mountain

climbing - and eating.

As school closed this year, the members of the Junior

Class often found themselves thinking, "Next ycar, we'll

bc the Seniors; we'll be the ones who receive privileges, who

are given banquets ... and who will leave with tears in our

eyes."

ClASS OF '54

JOE PRYOR,

Class Sponsor

THE SENIORS . . .

CLASS MEETINGS began early in the year with the election

of Owen D. to pilot the Class of '54 through the most important

year of college. And it didn't take long to begin

class functions. A fall outing was held at Latona on October

19, that is, after they all got together. Seems some took the

long way going instead of coming. The day turned out to

be a birthday celebration with three classmates blowing

out the candles on a surprise cake. Freedom Forum and

Pledge vVeek left little time for class functions, but in early

November elass members again got together at the Ford

Foundation banquet in the Emerald Room for a delicious

meal. Lack of more functions until mid-March proved that

the last year of college is the busiest, but despite a sudden

change to cold weatheL the Lodge at Camp Wyldewood provided

shelter for thirty hungry Seniors on their second outing.

The fun of that evening was continued the next week

at the Junior-Senior Banquet, and all will remember the

memories the class history recalled. .

The class of '54 is the transition class at Harding. There

are recollections of the old campus centered around Godden,

the building years, and the new beauty of the campus. Being

the smallest graduating class in several years was a little

hard to accept at first, but the compensation of graduating

from a fully accredited institution will be more appreciated

in future years.

SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS: Owen Olbricht, President; Mary Ann

Whitaker, Secretary; Leon Sanderson, Vice-President.

YEAR the Regina social club instituted an

to th~ senior who most nearly typified the

of Harding College. This year the senior

has chosen GRACE McREYNOLDS as the

who throughout her four years at Harding

shown that spirit of excellence and service,

te~np'~red with humility, which characterizes the

Halrdirlg spiri t.

For her cheerful willingness to serve others

her humble and modest attitude in doing so,

1954 Senior Class honors Gracie.

.,

WE WALKED the three blocks to Sunday morning worship at the College Church.

CHRIST OUR GOAL . ..

THE YOUNG PEOPLE'S program was directed by

Joe Lewis.

BROTHER Yohe's job wasn't always pleasant but

he was.

IN OUR world that we know here at Harding, perhaps

we have the greatest opportunity we'll ever

have for spiritual growth. This is a place where

the dreams of young Christians are filled in a

greater service to himself, to humanity, and to

God. Daily chapel devotions cause us to pause

from our busy lives to turn our thoughts to God,

to renew our purposes and ideals of living. Our

Bible lessons everyday help to keep our eyes on

that steadfast light that sometimes may grow dim,

but glows forth more brightly as the fleeting days

of Harding life go by. Then our teachers, \yho

seem to know the uneven pathway before us, who'

live Christianity everyday, who have intense interest

and tireless energy, show students what a

love for Christ can really mean.

These are the things that draw people to Harding.

It's not the fine buildings or location but the

over all atmosphere that dominates Our sports, activities

and classes. Services such as Monday night

meeting have made many decide to dedicate their

lives for greater service in the Lord's work.

70


THERE WAS A RELIGIOUS

INTEREST FOR ALL . ..

OF THE MANY opportunities in which students

could practice their Christian ideals, the COUNTY

FARM offered one of the most rewarding. Each

Sunday afternoon a group of students visited the

elderly residents at the farm and enabled them to

hear a lesson from the Bible as well as hymns sung

in a scriptual manner.

The traditional MONDAY NIGHT MEET­

INGS, in which the Christian attitude toward the

problems of everyday life was discussed, proved

well worth an hour of time to all who attended.

A new group, the MISSION STUDY CLASS,

was conducted early each Wednesday evening at

the College Church. It provided insight into the

problems of evangelistic work in both America

and foreign countries.

The SIGN LANGUAGE CLASS continued to

be of interest to a number of students. The purpose

of the class is to make it possible for its members

to teach Christianity to the deaf.

A quiet pause to commune with God, whether

in the middle or at the close of the day, served to

renew devotion to Him and love for human associates.

VESPERS brought serenity to close the

day's activities.


TilE WEATHER wasn't always so enjoyable on

the walk to the County Farm.

MONDAY NIGHT MEETINGS were well

planned and attended.

BROTHER CANNON had charge of the Mission

Study Class.

BOB ANDERSON had some apt pupils in the Sign

Language Class.

VESPERS ended the day with a feeling of closeness

to God.

STUDENT PREACHERS ...

" ... woe is me, if I preach not the gospel!"

APPROXIMATELY 150 young men at Harding

feel as the apostle Paul did concerning their debt

to those who do not know of the Savior. These

young Christians have the zeal of youth coupled

with the inspiration of great Godly teachers in the

graduate and undergraduate levels of work. This

combination gives many small Arkansas churches

the opportunity to have preaching each Sunday

and gives the students opportunity to preach regularly.

In addition to the regular instruction in classes.

the students preachers have many opportunities

to speak on the campus - in the dining hall

services, at vespers, at the county farm, at Monday

night meeting, and at the preacher's meeting each

Saturday night.

~he student preachers probably do more to

spread the spirit of Harding to nearby communities

than any other single group on the campus. Their

willingness to leave at the crack of dawn (even

earlier in some cases) and drive a great many

miles, often at a financial loss, is a real demonstration

of the Christian spirit.

GLENN BURGESS preached for the West Point

congregation.

AND Virgil Weare led the song service.


VISITING WOMEN renewed friendships over tea.

THE LECTURESHIP ...

TilE SIXTEENTH through the nineteenth of November

marked Harding's thirtieth annual lectureship.

It was one of the largest in the history

of the college as over five hundred visitors daily

filled the large auditorium and over fifteen hundred

attended the closing address. These visitors

came from twenty states, Africa and Canada. Forty·fi

ve ministers were on the four day program

speaking on the theme of "Biblical Prophecy." A

hi/(h point of the lectureship was the annual preacher's

dinner at the Rendezvous; the speaker was

Homer P. Reeves, Dallas, Texas. With the help

of the Southwestern Christian College from Terrill,

Tcxas, Marshall Keeble climaxed and concluded

the lectureship. Dr. W. B. West, head of the Harding

Bible Department was in charge of the planining

and was instrumental in promoting the suc­

Cess of the 1953 lectureship series.

MALE ALUMNI preferred coffee.

MARSHALL KEEBLE'S sincere address closed

the Lectureship.

MUSICAL ORGANIZATIONS . ..

THE HARDING CHORALE, remembered by most.

as the large chorus, met on Tuesday and Friday

nights throughout the year. The group, under the

direction of Prof. Kenneth Davis, provided an inspiring

program of hymns during the lectureships.

In May, they made a three day trip, singing in several

towns in Arkansas and Missouri. All members

of the group have enjoyed the fellowship and

informal nature of the rehearsals.

sas and Missouri. Also on the agenda, were many

week-end trips, several chapel programs, and a

lectureship program. In addition, a weekly radio

program "Hymns From Harding," was recorded

on the campus. This program is now heard on

forty-five stations throughout the country. The

groups, under the direction of Kenneth Davis, Jr.,

practiced from one to two five afternoons each

week.

ALPHA PSI

HARDING STUDENTS who are interested in dramatics

may earn points for doing various kinds of

work connected with the drama - stage work,

lightin1\", make-up, gathering properties, prompting,

ushering, and acting. Until one has worked

enough to amass one hundred points, he is considered

an apprentice or beginner in the techniques

of drama. When he has earned the necessary

points, shown sufficient interest, and displayed a

cooperative attitude, he is invited to become a fullfledged

member of Campus Players.

CAMPUS PLAYERS APPRENTICES

ALPHA PSI OMEGA is a national honorary dramatic

fraternity which seeks to recognize outstanding

work in college dramatics. Harding's cast is

the Eta Omega Cast of Alpha Psi Omega. To be

eligible one must have shown unusual ability and

interest and, as a further requirement, must have

directed a one act play. The cast has recently set

a precedent of presenting one major production

each year in which, when possible, only members

of Alpha Psi Omega participate. This year's presentation

was Menotti's "The Medium," staring

Marian Rawlings, Pat Rowe, and Meredith Thorn.

In collaboration with Campus Players they pre-

sent, each year, a silver key to the best actor, the

best actress, the best character actor, the best character

actress, the best backstage worker, and the

best director of one act plays.

One act plays were numerous and varied' this

year, providing new students interested in dramatics

with the experience needed for larger productions.

Campus Player productions of the year included

two English plays, "Mr. Pim Passes By"

and "The Importance of Being Earnest" by A. A.

Milne, and "Beyond the Horizon" by the American

playwright, Eugene O'Neill.

MR. PIM queitly passed by, dropping the equivalent

of a bombshell in a sedate British home.

CALIGULA, the half crazy and wholly cruel Roman

emperor in The Robe, was convincingly portrayed

by Meredith Thorn.

DEBATERS: Evan Ulrey, Edsel Hughes, Pat Fogarty,

THE DEBATE CLUB, though not regularly m~eting,

had quite an active year. In December, the debaters

journeyed to the Forensic tournament in Fayetteville

to discuss the question "Resolved: The United States

Should Adopt a Policy of Free Trade." Later Duane

McCampbell and Edsel Hughes, accompanied by Evan

Ulrey, debated at Henderson State Teachers College

in Arkadelphia. The climax of the year's activity was

the Arkansas State Debate Tourney to which Harding

was host. Here Duane McCampbell won the oratorical

contest, and with the aid of Edsel Hughes reached

the finals.

The POETRY CLUB is composed of those who

are interested in writing poetry. In the regular Tuesday

night meetings members of the club presented

and critized each other's poetry. A further activity

this year was a chapel program exhibiting several of

their poems enhanced by pantomines. Polly Williams

was the club sponsor.

A quite active club open to all those interested

in photography is the CAMERA CLUB. The activities

of the year included a camera trip to Petit Jean; the

monthly photographic contest; and the annual exhibition

IRC members started off the year of 1953-54 with

a vigorous and colorful campaign that ended in a

hot and tense convention of a hundred and cleven

delegates, who watched Gene Rainey, Al Petrich,

and Jennie Schoolfield emerge as victorious officers.

Feeling ran high in the hour that Dr. Charles

Kenney was unanimously re-elected faculty advisor

of the IRC.

The first big project of the year was the Mock

Security Council Program. The subject under discussion

was the Korean peace conference. The

script for the program was written by Dr. Kenney.

IRC members put away their school books

when they represented Harding in the second Mid­

South Model United Nations at David Lipscomb

College on February twenty-fifth. Competing with

fifteen other colleges and universities, our delegates

made outstanding contributions. Gene

Rainey and Dick Richardson appeared on TV and

radio programs respectively. Harding sent a resolutiop

commending Lipscomb on her courage and

hard work involved in the planning of the Model

United Nations.

Harding showed her great school spirit in the

form of a pep rally to send off the delegation. It

was a high compliment payed to them and it was

appreciated by the whole group.

FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA ...

AS USUAL, the Florence Cathcart Chapter had a

great year in 1953-54. The year began wi th a

membership drive which was highlighted by a

chapel program. Few will forget this "chapel program

in a chapel program." This resulted in a

highly active group of fifty-five future teachers

who are members of the Arkansas and ational

Education Association.

Under the guidance of President Ken Noland

and Bob Coburn, who was chairman of the program

committee, the chapter had an interesting

meeti ng each month.

In October a group of FT A'ers attended the

annual FTA luncheon in Hot Springs which was

held in connection with the AEA Convention.

The big event in the FT A year, of course, is

the state convention in Little Rock. The Harding

delegation arrived early fully armed with posters

and canis supporting their candidates for state offire.

After the campaigning and voting was

over, the results were identical to those of the past

two years - Harding was victorious! Ken Noland

was the state vice-president and Jeanne Bankston

the college member at-large.

COVERING campus activities, wntmg the news,

and meeting deadlines are only a part of the life

of the members of the "fourth estate" as they put

out Harding's student weekly, The Bison. Headaches

attach themselves to editors as things do not

go smoothly. However, there is glory for the hard

work when award time comes around each year.

This year, the Bison won the sweepstakes at the

Arkansas College Press Association meet in Clarksville,

April 2-3. The sweepstakes award goes to

the paper winning the most individual awards.

As an added activity of the Bison, the All-Star

Basketball game is sponsored by the paper. This

year's winner was the National league. At the

close of the year with the job well done the staff

celebrates with a final get-together, usually a fish

THE PETIT JEAN ...

AS COULD BE expected, the work to produce the

annual record of the year needed the contribution

of time and effort on the part of many. Whether

the energy put into reaching this goal has been

well spent or not will be determined by its value

to you now and in future years.

And perhaps here is the best place to include

the editor's thanks to one and all who had any part

in the completion of this book, to those who helped

by keeping appointments for pictures as well as

those who contributed time and copy or pictures

needed.

STUDENT ASSOCIATION .. .

THIS has been another fine year of work for the

Student Association. This group of sixteen people

who compose the executive council, two from each

class (including the. graduate class and the academy),

three officers, and a faculty advisor, met on

alternate Tuesday nights to discuss the various

problems of campus life.

While much of the council's work was quiet

and not noticed by many students, it has rendered

a real service. There are representatives from the

council on each of the faculty committees, so that

student viewpoint actually influences major decisions

and policies in an organized way.

Perhaps the highlight activity of the year

for the council was the pep rally given in behalf

of the United States Delegation who represented

Harding at the Mid-South Model United Nations

in Nashville, Tennessee.

As in years past, it has been the council's objective

to serve Harding - both the faculty and

student body - by providing an instrument by

C. L. GANUS, SR.

MANY OF OUR actIvItIes take place around the Ganus

Student Center, and yet old students as well as new are not

aware of the many ~ontibutions made to this college that

prompted the naming of this building in honor of Mr. Clifton

L. Ganus, Sr.

Brother Ganus has served for several years as Chairman

of the Board of Trustees, but has further shown his interest in

Harding and its students by establishing a $2,000 student

loan fund and offering $100 each year to the boy and girl

with the highest scholastic rating. In addition, he was the

largest single donor toward the building named for him.

Recognizing his contributions to Christian Education,

we, the students, want to express here our apprecation for all

that he has done for Harding and for us.

MRS. ARMSTRONG served at the All-Girl Club

tea.

THERE ARE twelve men's social clubs and thirteen

women's social clubs chartered at Harding. Some

have existed almost since the college was founded,

while others have been organized in more recent years

as the enrollment increased. Each student has the

opportunity to belong to a club if he or she wishes

to do so, with membership in each club regulated by

the annual enrollment to insure approximately equal

size among clubs.

To the newcomer on campus the long list of

social clubs merely creates a bewildering array of

names, colors, and symbols and only by much observation

and many questions does the solution evolve.

During the six-week period at the beginning of

each semester new students and old have the opportunity

to become acquainted before club choices are

made. This year the girls' clubs had open house in

the dormitory and later an all-girl reception at the

Rendezvous to meet the new girls, but the boys were

content to advertise through club get-togethers and

"bull sessions."

GETTING acquainted at the tea.

New students turned in their club preferences,

club meetings were held, and bids went out on a

Monday morning. Excitement grew as students returning

from a weekend at home crowded the student

center in order to get their mail, and instructions

and special pledging equipment were passed out that

evening from solemn pledge masters. Tuesday morning

began at an early hour for all, and an endless

number of hats, pins, jackets, and "extras" in colorful

display were seen by the larger-than-usual number

of students at breakfast.

Pledge week is sometimes as hectic for the old

club members as the pledges ... having to get up at

6 a.m. to take them to breakfast, trying to look stern

when it's such a temptation to laugh, and racking the

brain for chores to keep them busy. Of course there

are conpensations on both sides - probably more

venetian blinds are dusted that week than all year

combined, and the dating season is definitely "on."

GRACIE had fun -

Yvonne got wet!

BIRD'S EYE VIEW of the Sub T cabin.


AND IT ALL BEGAN WITH A BID ...

DURING pledge week the pledges had two con·

solations: "It can't last forever," and "Next yeal

I'll be the pledgem'oster." After the initiations,

club activities settled down into the usual routine

of parti e~, banquets, and outings with an occasional

business meeting thrown in for good measure.

"IT SLIDES DOWN so-o-o gently, but ..."

- the climax to a long hike.

PETIT JEAN QUEEN NOMINEES ...

CANDIDATES for the honors of yearbook queen,

nominated by the men's social clubs, were exceptionally

outstanding this year. There were twelve

juniors and seniors to choose from on the basis of

beauty, personality, and friendliness as they were

formally presented to the student body for voting

during a chapel period. The three girls receiving

the most votes remained finalists for the queen

honors, with the final vote determining which one

would be queen and the others attendants.

Companeras; Thelma Harmon, OEGE; Sara Jean Covey, Delta Chi Omega.

MAY QUEEN NOMINEES .. .

SINCE May Fete is sponsored by a girls' social

club. it is fitting the nominees for May Queen

honors be sponsored by the girls' clubs. Each

club selects a girl to represent them and the candidates

are presented to the student body during a

chapel program to select the top three contestants.

A final voting on these three then determines who

will reign as Queen of May, one of the most important

events of the college year.

Queen of '53, Alice Freetley, and her court.

SOCIAL CLUBS also have a part in the selection

of representatives for the May Court each year,

with each m en 's club providing an escort for a

girls' club representative. The pastel dresses of

the girls' and formal dress of the men furnish a

striking background for the queen's throne.

CLUB ACTIVITIES started early for the Alpha Phi's

this year with a weiner roast and watermelon feed

at Bee Rock, and pledges got their first view of the

same locality when they were initiated at Inspiration

Point. They enjoyed "an excellent meal" at the home

of their sponsor, and he in turn was presented with a

club jacket to the tune of "For He's a Jolly Good

Fellow." The fun being cannibals at the Legion

Hut banquet in "Cannibal's Paradise" and the annual

spring outing to Petit Jean we re other events of the

year. along with club nominee Mary Ann Tonkery

reaching P.J. Queen finals. They j"ined with the Tri­

Kappas in presenting a silver tea service to the library

DURING PLEDGE WEEK the sight of so many black

string ties made one wonder if Harding had imported

some Southern gentlemen, but they were just eleven

Cavalier club pledges with their best manners forward.

This has been a very profitable year for the Cavaliers,

not only in their increased membership, but for the

worthwhile work they contributed in painting new

swings for the campus and adding to the student loan

fund of the club. The Terrace Room of the Mayfair,

decorated in club colors of black and gold, was the

scene of their annual winter banquet, with club sweetheart

Martha Clayton present, and the spring outing

to Petit Jean was an outstanding event of the year's

activities.

BEING a smaller club than the year before has its

advantages as well as its disadvantages. For instance,

the Delta Chis found it was much roomier on

the floor of Mrs. Watts apartment than is usual at

slumber parti~s, and maybe Mary could add a few

more comments about the evening at this point, not

to mention the Chili supper before retiring. Those

who stayed between semesters to attend will recall

the "Artists' Ball" banquet theme and the colorful

decorations of the evening. And there probably hasn't

been a more surprised "Sweetie Pie of Del ta Chi" than

one Ken Perrin. This honor came on the spring outing

to Petit Jean, the earliest of the year, on April

12, after four lost and hungry kids joined the group

for lunch at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. A word here

- there are several girls in the dormitory who appreciate

the abundance of food left over from Delta

Chi outings.

EMERALD ROOM PARTIES seem to be a specialty

with the Delta Iotas. Anyway that's how they began

this year's activities, and seems the line "Delta Iotas

and their dates were:" is often seen in the Bison social

column. Initiation at Bee Rock produced seven new

members to share in stag outings and frequent club

get~togethers. "Garden in the Moonlight" was the

annual banquet theme, held at the Rendezvous on

January 15. An event of the evening was the presentation

of a dozen red roses to club queen Jerry Chesshir,

no doubt in added recognition for her receiving

student body vote as finalist for Petit Jean Queen.

Blanchard Springs, already well known to most club

members, was again the scenic spot for their annual

spring outing.

ELEVEN NEW MEMBERS were initiated into the

"Frater fraternity" on a stag outing to Wyldewood

and became members of a club that stresses high

standards of morality and Christianity continuously.

Their annual winter banquet on January 22, saw

the Mayfair decorated for a dinner "Down in Dixie"

and featured entertainment by a trio plus Gregg

Rhodes, talented sponsor. Stag outings and basketball

games with other clubs all furthered friendships.

the purpose for which the club was organized. as did

the annual spring outing to Camp Tahkodah. The

Frater Sodalis were responsible for the badly needed

replacements of new bulletin boards for the dining

STAG OUTINGS were a Galaxy specialty this year

- two were held at Hobo Island and one at Bee Rock.

The latter location was also the site of the initiation,

informal of course, as any Galaxy pledge could tell

you. The spring outing which was held at Blanchard

Springs, April 12, furnished a day of fun and was

definitely not a stag affair. Banquet themes are at a

premium during the winter months, most of them

having been used many times before, so for their banquet

on February 4 the Galaxys went back in ancient

history. In fact, the usually modern Rendezvous was

hardly distinguishable from scenes found in Greek

Mythology, and club sweetheart, Mary Lou Johnson,

looked lovely in a vivid red formal for the occasion.

WHO COULD FORGET the GATA Muds? Certainly

not their pledge dates who heard,

"If you're donna tiss me, tiss me twick. If

you're not donna tiss me, tay so. Don't

leave me tanding here so long on tiptoes

tause I'm so tired and teepy."

And perhaps this was heard more often than usual

because the GATAs had their share of the pledges

this year - an even dozen, with four Pats just to

make things more complicated. In the early fall they

began their social functions with a steak fry at the

Little Red School House. At Christmas, they joined

with the Galaxys to go caroling and for a party

afterward. Then came the banquet, which can only

be described as "A Rhapsody in Blue." Spring activities

included the annual outing and an alumni tea.

THE HHH CLUB project this year was one that was

enjoyed both by them and the people at the County

Farm. They gave a Christmas Party for the elderly

residents there with all the refreshments and gifts

that make young and old love a party. And as a

further service of the group, they volunteered a day

of work for helping at Camp Wyldewood on May 17.

On February 13, the Mayfair Hotel was decorated

with the traditional red and white for a Valentine

banquet, and members and thier dates heard Burton

Coffman as speaker for the evening. Their annual

spring outing was held May 10 at Petit Jean State

Park.

"DO YOU TillNK IT'LL RAIN?" During the closing

days of April this is the usual greeting between members

of the Ju Go Ju Club, as anxious May Fete

sponsors. The first day of May is The Big Day when

the Queen, elected by the student body, is crowned,

and when, after a month's practice, thirty-two girls

gracefully wind the May Pole. The Ju Go Jus' social

activities for the year began at the home of their

sponsor, Mrs. Cline Sears, with the formal initiation

of ten new members. Highlights were a banquet, in

the style of "The Old South," given at the Rendezvous,

February 6, and an outing at Petit Jean, May 10, but

also unforgetable are such things as cooking a spaghetti

supper, making popcorn balls, and having club

meetings in Armstrong Hall - in Mrs. Beck's apartment,

that is.

"THOSE STOCKINGS!" The six pledges who became

Tri·Kappas in their sixth year of existence w ill certainly

remember pledge week w ith mixed emotions.

They wore gold and grey stockings through the entire

week, and met quite a few club officers by introducing

themselv:es with, IIWilI you please autograph my key?"

Memorable events of the year include celebrating the

club birthday on October 15, an impressive formal

initiation and numerous other meetings in the home

of Mrs. Ganus, singing the club song, the banquet

trip "Along the Milky W ay," and the spring outing

to Petit J ean. As their project of the year, with the

ONE OF the Koinonia traditions is to give their

pledges a "warmingtt welcome into the club, and this

year was no exception, as all new members will agree.

The initiations, being informal, were held on stag

outings. The 'KOIN-TV "Kiddie Show" furnished entertainment

for their annual banquet held at Roberson's

Rendezvous on March 6, and an event of the

evening was the choice of Peggy Futrell as club

sweetheart. You can recognize Peggy wearing the

white sweater with the miniature Koinonia emblem,

her gift of the evening. Petit Jean State Park was

the site of the spring outing, and other club activities

included playing basketball and football games, competing

in the Track and Field Day Program, and last,

but far from least - serenading the girls' dorms,

with Sammy Floyd singing the solos.

"FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, and High Aspirations."

Gu ided by this motto, the Lambda Sigma club this

year provided a variety of activities for its members.

Returning members started the college year with a

splash when they took over the swimming pool for

their first meeting, and their gold-jacketed pledges

were seen everywhere - at the bargain counter, providing

musical interludes, on line-cutting patrol. Horsing

around at business meetings, stag outings at

Wyldewood, Beauregard Bugleboy's poem at the Okeefenakee

Swamp Party, having their club queen, Nancy

McDaniel, gain May Queen Finalist honors, and the

spring outing to Petit Jean made it a full year for

the Lambda Sigmas.

TIDS MIGHT be called a year of revolution for the

L. C. Club since they revised their constitution;

elected a neW" sponsor, Miss Lucretia Farrar; and

initiated a total of twelve new members. But revolutions

or not, it has been a year of fun. In November,

the group enjoyed a weiner roast at Bee Rock. On

January 23, "Graucho Marx," otherwise known as

Hubert Franks, entertained them at the Mayfair

Hotel with his "You Bet Your Life Show." In

March the traditional Spanish Supper was relished

and on May 3 the girls with their dates went to Petit

Jean for a day of fun. The annual club project is

placing the composite panel of Seniors in the Science

THE PLACE was a small, dimly lighted cafe; in one

corner of the room a gypsy sat telling fortunes; violin

music played softly in the background. In ract, one

would hardly realize that it was the MEA banquet at

the Roberson's Rendezvous. Nor would one believe

that these exotic creatures were the same girls who,

dressed in heavy coats, scarfs, and mittens, had sung

Christmas carols only a rew weeks in the past. Other

FOR THEIR WINTER banquet the Mohicans stayed

in character and turned the Rendezvous into a big

"Indian Pow-wow." Their spring outing was held at

Camp Tahkodah, and other memorable experiences

include two stag outings - one at Camp Wyldewood

where they raided the site of another club's stag outing,

and one a mile south of Bee Rock on the Little

Red River. This year Ortell Armstrong was chosen

club queen. The Mohicans are proud of their undefeated

team in basketball and football competition

with other men's clubs, as well as participation in the

Track and Field Day activities. Project for the year

was the contribution of the new sidewalk from East

Dorm to the walk leading from Armstrong Hall, which

all East Dormers have learned to appreciate.

NEW CLUB JACKETS appeared on campus this

year in the form of blue and white OEGE colors. Confidentially,

there were only three, but the owners

were seen in so many places there seemed to be more.

The OEGEs also had a new sponsor this year, along

with their seven pledges, to get acquainted with. Thi~

project was furthered by a slumber party in the home

of Mrs. Cannon and at special club meetings, such as

one featuring a waffle supper. Overcoming the largerthan-usual

number of difficulties, including the

weather, made their "Mardi Gras" banquet even more

a success, and one to be often recalled. The popular

site for outings, Petit Jean State Park, was their

destination on the spring outing.

GHOSTS, GOBLINS, WITCHES, and weird noises introduced

the prospective Omega Phi members to

pledge week. What could be more appropriate than

a Halloween party to replace the usual acceptance

tea? Completing pledge week, two initiation ceremonies

were held - the first a mock initiation and the

second formal and "for real." For their banquet the

girls and their dates spent "An Evening in Paris."

However, they returned to Arkansas to have their

spring outing at Camp Tahkodah. Closing the year's

socia l whirl was the club's traditional fish fry.

A MEMORABLE DAY for the entire school is the one

when the Regina Club presents the "Harding Spirit

Award." Each year this honor goes to the senior

whom the members of the senior class believe to be

the most deserving. At a Mexican supper in Cathcart

kitchen, the Reginas proved quite versatile - not

only were they able to cook the food, they were able

to eat it. And on the day they initiated their nine

new pledges, the Reginas also gained the youngest

club member in their history in the person of Beverly

Jo Pryor. In December, the group enjoyed a Christ·

mas party at Bessie Mae Pryor's home, and on Feb·

ruary 27, the password was "Ship Ahoy" as they dined

in style aboard the good ship Rendezvous. The spring

outing was held at Petit Jean, May 17.

113


TEN SIGMA TAU pledges were initiated at Hobo

Island and returned to their sponsor's home for food

after the "fun," to begin an eventful year. Not only

did the ir activities include the usual swimming parties

and stag outings to Wyldewood, but the ambitious

Sigma Tau's were also respohsible for "When Shakespeare's

Gentlement Get Together," the one-act play

enjoyed so much in chapel. And in case you wondered

who provided identification tags for visiting groups

on campus, they did, as their club project. Betty

Helm was chosen club queen and proved a wise choice

not only because she gained P.J. Queen finals, but

could bake a good cake as well. Honoring departing

member Cecil May at a farewell party, their Valentine

banquet at the Roseann Restaurant, and spring outing

at Petit Jean were other high points of the year.

IF ASKED what brought the greatest satisfaction

and enjoyment among club activities this year probably

every Sub T would reply without hesitation -

"Finishing our log cabin!" A Sub T seen on campus

on a Monday was a rare thing - either because they

were gone to Pocahontas or were hard to work on

their cabin. It was the scene of many stag outings

and finished in time for their Frontier Days banquet

on February 20, with the weather adding an extra

rugged touch to the event. Other events of the year

included pledge initiation, the spring outing, and

football and basketball games with other clubs. They

joined with the WHCs in buying a trophy case for

the Student Center for their year's project.

ON THE NIGHT of Febraury 5, all faithful TNT

members turned into cowboys and took their "gals"

to a party at the "TNT Ranch," alias the Legion Hut.

In their natural characters members enjoyed three

other social events - a Hamburger party at Cecil

Beck's home, a party honoring the club given by Dr.

Joe Pryor, and one held in the Emerald noom February

1. April 19 was the date, and Camp Tahkodah

the scene of their spring outing, and Camp Wyldewood

the lodging for the night at the ir initiation ceremony.

Purchasing badly needed song books for

vesper services in Armstrong Hall was their project

for the year.

THE TOFEBT CLUB might be known as the "most

partying club" on campus - having had at least six

parties this year, not including the formal initiation,

the spring outing at Petit Jean, and the annual slumber

parties. Perhaps the most unusual of these

parties was the traditional Tin Can Supper. The

theme of the winter banquet. held at the Mayfair

Hotel, was "A Holiday in Mexico." The other parties

were a pie supper, a Halloween party, a Christmas

party at the home of Mrs. Jack Wood Sears. and a

club dinner. The Tofebt's project was making and

contributing toward repairs in the Infirmary.

AS THE YEARS pass, the Tri-Sigma Delta Club's

project is one which will grow in size and beauty -

it was setting out three magnolia trees near the

girls' dormitories. "Sugar" might be credited with

suggesting this project because one night in club

meeting he drawled, "Y'all, ah'm homesick fo' Mississippi."

Entergetic Tri-Sigs can also be credited with

a iding in the Heart Fund drive, as they made personal

visits to solicit funds. Outstanding occasions for the

club this year have been the initiation, a stag outing

at Camp Tahkodah, and the spring outing at Petit

Jean. But regular meetings have also been un forgetable

- especially those held banquet style.

AS THE OLDEST girls' social club, the WHCs proudly

wear the name of \Voodson Harding Comrades, after

Mrs. J. N. Armstrong. These fun-loving girls cooked

up both the fried chicken and "fixin's" for their

annual "Country Supper" and ingenious initiation

stunts for the sixteen new pledges, with the atmosphere

of Halloween adding a spookier-than-usual touch

to their informal initiation this year. Meetings were

highlighted by numerous parties and suppers, including

their annual progressive supper. Halloween Party

for pledges, and bunking parties at the lovely home

of Mrs. W est. 'l'wo projects were on their agenda

this year - "peanut week" for the dormitory girls

and joining with the Suh T's to buy a trophy case

ATHLETIC DIRECTORS KEPT SPORTS INTERESTS AT

PEAK PARTICIPATION . ..

APPROXIMATELY 200 students participated in

the intra-mural program at Harding this year.

Football, basketball, baseball, tennis, volleyballall

these and other sports contributed to the wellrounded

schedule led by M. E. "Pinky" Berryhill

and Hugh Rhodes. Cecil "Doc" Beck directed the

baseball portion of the program. A new innovation

was used this year for the first time. Under

a new point system, medals. and trophies were to

be presented at the end of the year to the students

piling up the most points during the season. For

instance, bein~ on a winning team in basketball

would assure the student of five points. The student

with the highest number of points for the

year is to receive an appropriate trophy or medal

for his accomplishments. Four student assistants

were also named by the P.E. department to help

in carrying out the program. The students named

were: John Hill;s, Harvey Starling, Mary Etta

Grady, and Ken Shewmaker. Each is to receive

a monogrammed jacket from the department for

services rendered. All in all, the athletic department

at Harding this year had one of its finest seasons

ever ... thanks to three Weat leaders, four

assistants, and the cooperation of all participating.

STUDENT ASSISTANTS: John Hillis,

Mary Etta Grady, Ken Shewmaker.

RECOGNITION in the annual publication, Who's

Who in American Universities and Colleges, is one

of the highest honors a college student may attain.

Students are first recommended by the college

attended and then accepted by the organization.

The faculty made the selections from a group of

students proposed by the Student Association and

on the basis of qualities of scholarship, leadership,

and cooperation in educational and extra-curricular

activities, and the promise of future usefulness

to business and society.

This year there were ten students - nine

seniors and one junior-represented from Harding.

SHIRLEY BIRDSALL editor of the '54 Petit

Jean, was remembered by many girls of the '55

C1a~s as a very helpful "Big Sister."

DANNY BROWN took time out from heading

a family to set high scholastic standards throughout

his college career.

NORMAN HUGHES proved he had knowledge

and ability above and beyond that usually

required of General Science majors.

MARY LOU JOHNSON contributed a great

deal to the pleasure of all through her spon taneous

friendliness and talents.

CECIL MAY, JR wrote an inspiring column

for the Bison, worked hard in the dramatic department,

and kept a high scholarship rating.

OWEN OLBRICHT made contributions to

many campus activities ranging from chorus to

basketball to Senior Class President.

CHARLES PITTMAN, in his calm manner,

showed that quiet effeciency and dependability are

qualities that make for success.

PAT ROWE managed to maintain a high

grade average while starring in several major

dramatic productions.

JANE SUTHERLIN, usually found between

the Maypole and the Petit Jean office, made contributions

to many campus activities.

brains and initiative are an unbeatable combination

in getting many jobs done.

and in recognition of his efforts was selected

"Arkansan of the Year" for 1953. In a statewide

SEPT EMBER

FOR the freshmen, and old students returning

early, "rush week" began on the Monday morning

of September fourteenth. After the process of moving

in, with frequent pauses to meet and greet

others, there was the schedule to ·consult. Newcomers

attended the orientation meetings and then it

didn't take them long to start groaning "Oh, no!

Not another line l " There were lines for the physicals,

lines waiting to see counselors, lines to stand

in waiting to be sectionalized and registered, but

hardest of all to get used to - lines as far as the

fish pond for meals. However, it was a pleasant

surprise to enjoy meals in the newly decorated interior

of the dining hall.

The fine art of book buying had to be accomplished

before classes began the following Friday

morning and we settled down to the routine of

m eeting 8:00 classes and rushing through lunch to

the 1 :00 ones. We were just about settled when

the annual photographer came and upset everybody's

schedule.

OCTOBER began a little noisely - campaigns for

freshmen class officers subsided only to give way

to the publicity· of those for IRC officers. To the

cheers of supporters, new officers were installed

and the noise subsided into the busy buzz of the

routine again. That is until the fourth week began

the faU meeting of the College Church and test

week for most. Sunday night, the eleventh, really

began the club activities with the girl's clubs

grouping in the dorm rooms to meet the new girls.

That week picture proofs returned and the major

decision of which pose to put in the annual was

made. The following Sunday afternoon was the

date of the AU Girl Reception tea at the Rendezvous

and then the girls of the dormitories got better

acqua inted by bunking up during the week of

Freedom Forum XlV. No sooner were the visitors

gone than pledge week began. After the harrowing

experiences of pledging it was quite fitting

that initiations take place on Halloween night; especially

those held informally.

NOVEMBER

AS WE recuperated from the many hazards of

pledge week and Halloween, we were reminded of

that fact that it was only three short weeks until

the Thanksgiving vacation. Lectureships began on

the fifteenth. The theme was "Biblical Phophecy"

- Brother Marshall Keeble spoke to a capacity

crowd. On the twentieth "Ecce Credo" was presented

in chapel. As a warm-up for their trip to the

model United Nations in the spring, the IRC presented

a mock Security Council Session on the

twenty-third. The month ended on a pleasant note

- Thanksgiving vacation.

DECEMBER

DECEMBER seemed such a nice month, with a lot

of activities in the very few days between the

Thanksgiving holidays and the Christmas holidays.

On the fourth, we heard the Longine Symphonette.

"Beyond the Horizon" was presented on the eleventh.

The girls won't forget "Peanut Week" and

the dorm Christmas party. One of the most enjoyable

evenings of the year was the sixteenth, when

everybody surprized everybody else. The girls

had planned to go outside to sing carols at the boys

dorms, while the boys had erected a large tree on

the front lawn for the girls. Everybody com promized

by standing around the tree singing carols

and then moving up to the Emerald Room for refreshments

furnished by the faculty. Christmas

holidays thus started with a bang.

WONDER which they wanted most?

INTERESTING but oh those long speeches!

JANUARY

AFTER the Christmas holidays, the pass-word was

"die t. " After classes started on January sixth, everybody

busied themselves finishing the semester

w ith term papers and outside readi ng. T he tenth

brough t us the biggest snow in years. The sidewalk

from Pattie Cobb to the Student Center was a

virtual no-man's land after the snow-ball brigade

mobilized. The Petit Jean Queen nominees were

presented in chapel on the eighth while the M ay

Queen nominees were presented on the fourteenth.

Who's Who Awards were m ade in cha pel on the

twenty-third (It's a good thing tha t they were all

ther e! ) ' and "The Robe': was presented tha t evening.

The month ended with those dreaded exams.

FEBRUARY

MANY new faces accompanied February as we

registered on the second for the new semester.

There was a meeting of the Studen t Association

tha t evening with "en tertainment." W e'll all remember

the Academy Senior play "Great Expectati

ons" given as well as the Rondoliers. The tacky

party was held in the dining hall; Pat Fogerty,

Kathleen Arnold, Dennie H all, and Ralph Odom

won the prizes for the night. The highlight of the

mon th was the H arding IRC United Sta tes delegation

participating in the model U. N . at David Lipscom

b College. A huge pep rally, including cheerleaders,

gave them a big sendoff on the twentysecond,

after the "glorious leader," alias Dr. Kenney,

was exalted and various testimonials made.

MARCH

MARCH began with "The Importance of Being

Earnest. " The basketball season finished with the

Bison All-Star gam e on the sixth. Ken Noland and

Jeanne Bankston were elected to state office at the

FT A convention on the thirteenth, and on that

same day, the Senior class went to Camp W yldewood

for a nice, windy outing. On the eighteenth,

the Jr.-Sr. Banquet was held at the Rendezvous to

the theme of an Irish H oliday. The twenty-sixth

was the most famous day of this month, or this

year! Harding was accepted by the North Central

Association. The old Godden bell rang for five

minutes to announce the acceptance, followed by

several speeches on a bench by the side of the bell

tower. That night we had three consecutive meetings.

First the meeting a t the College Church, then

Marais and Miranda, and then a rally with the

band, Dr. Benson, and everything! What a night!

APRIL began with the return from spring holidays.

Many Ju Go Ju's who were all excited about

"The Medium" was given on the nineth,

and the Concert Trio gave an unusual but very

enjoya ble c;oncert on the thirtieth. Club outings

started this month - the weather being very

agreeable, as you may have noticed by the "sun­

MAY

MAY traditionally opens with a May Day celebration,

and this one was no exception. Nancy Mc­

Daniel was crowned Queen of May by Brother

Charles Pitner. On the sixth, some ran hurdles

while others stayed at home and caught up with

term papers and outside reading. We will remember

the dedication of the Petit Jean. Brother Maurice

Howell delivered the bacculaureate sermon on

the thirtieth. Final exams began on the twentyeighth.

This was the month the Seniors had their

last outing of the year to celebrate with mixed

emotions their parting.

EXCEPT for the summer school students, June was

a very short school month - three days. But in

those three days was packed the climax of the year

- exams were finished on the first; the unforgettable

and all-inclusive celebration on the second;

and the commencement on the third!

THE ACADEMY . ..

UNDER the energetic supervision of Perry Mason

the largest enrollment of Academy students in its

history proved to have more than its share of talent

and personalities. In every field of competition

new records have been set or higher standards

reached. Not least among the reasons for this

progress are the spiritual examples set by the

faculty and the inspiration provided for their students.

State and county are taking notice of the

results achieved here in spite of an enrollment

smaller than most schools.

KAT PLEDGES had not one but two initiation

ceremonies to look forward to. Halloween just

called for an informal initiation this year, with

the formal on e on November 2. During the year

there were not only secret club pals to do nice

things for, but also a banquet to work on. On

January 30 their guests enjoyed a banquet to the

them e and tune of "Star Dust." As a club project

they saw the need and spent their time and effort

mending the hymn books in the Academy auditorium.

EVERYONE benefited from pledge week when a

K-9 pledge was around to brush up your suede

shoes Qr open doors or carry umbrellas and books.

And no wonder - there were only fourteen of

them! After a bank-up initiation, one of their first

activities was a hamburger fry in the back yard at

Edward Ritchie's home. Their banquet, carried

out with a Hawaiian theme, was held March 30th.

For the year's project it was decided they would

place mirrors in the boy's dressing room in the

rrym and in the football dressing rooms.


THE SUB-DEB Club, the oldest of the high school

girls' social clubs, has been functioning since 1938.

This year they added seven new members to their

ranks and went on to have a lovely banquet to the

theme of "Artistry in Rhythm." It was held on

February 20 in the Terrace Room of the Mayfair

Hotel. As did their brother club, the ZKTs, they

chose to make an Academy scrapbook of the year's

events to present to the school.

THIS year the ZKTs decorated the Rendezvous in

keping for an "Evening in Paris" theme for their

wintcr banquet, designed new club pins and ordered

club jackets as some of their annual activities.

A dozen new members helped accomplish

these projects, after putting in some earnest pledging

- or what they would call just plain hard

work. They must not mind the work, though, because

they also donated a day's work preparing

Camp Wyldewood for the summer opening and

also prepared an Academy scrapbook to be presen

ted to Perry Mason at thc end Of school.

INCREASED SCHOOL enrollment called for the formation

of a new girls' social club this year, eighteen

girls received membership bids, and at an acceptance

tea given by sponsor Polly Williams the name Sigma

Theta Alpha Rho was selected. Otherwise to be

known as the STARs, the girls chose blue and white

for their club colors, and were pledged by KAT and

Sub-Deb members. Their formal initiation was held

in Pattie Cobb Hall reception room with Mrs. Pickens

serving refreshments, and their first annual banquet

took place April 10 at the Rendezvous. Club pins and

jackets were designed and the Galaxy college men's

social club offered its services as a big brother club.

FOOTBALL .. .

NOT SINCE MINK coats got into the White House

has sectional interest been so high as it was this

year on the Academy gridiron. Crowned District

2B champs in thei r third year of interscholastic

competition, the VI' ildcats chalked up a sterling

7-1 record for the season. Only powerful Cotton

Plant held the 'Cats at bay for four quarters. Ten

men placed on the all-district squad. This number

Mickey Allen, Freddy Massey, Dick May, Bill

Path, Otis Falls, John, Harold, and Roy Vanderpool,

Chuck Van Eaten, and John W eibel. Dot Goodwin

BASKETBALL ...

"PERFECTION" could well describe the Wildcats'

achievements on the hardwood this year. Posting

a sterling 20-6 record in their third year of interscholastic

ball, the 'Cats advanced to the semi-finals

of the District 2B tournament at Swifton, bowling

over Southside, Grubbs, and Charlotte in order.

Oil Trough's once-beaten Bears finally conquered

the Bengals, 70-56. Freddy Massey placed on the

all-district senior squad and Mickey Allen copped

all-county honors.
