Ron Keller:  November 11, 2010 - Election activities for the 1961 BHS student council!

Hello all of you Bunkiens:  I am so glad my brother Gary sent me this site.  What a neat way to relive past Bunkie memories. 

The memory that comes to mind was the election activities for the 1961 BHS student council.  Our ticket [Pirate] ran against Oliver LaPrairie's ticket in what had to be the most colorful and energetic contest ever held at BHS.  We each had cars with speakers blaring, banners across the front of the school, a plane flyover with leaflets raining over the campus, etc.  I think the plane incident was the last straw for Mr. Couvillion [principal] when he said that this kind of electioneering will never be tolerated again.  I can still remember Mr. Roy and Mr. Mayeaux [school custodians] having to clean up the pamphlets from the grounds and the school roof. 

 I will never forget the fun I had with Dianne Zimmerman [then], Christie Blaylock [then], Mike Clark, and the others on the ticket during our "happy days".  Ron Keller


Memory Lane:  "Bunkie - Marksville Football Game Fight 1962" 'Brother Knoll': May 28, 2008:

Brother Knoll - Bunkie Panther 1962

My sister Diane clued me into the Memory Page where I saw the Knoll  name mentioned a few times - mostly connected to the Bayou and  "Jungle" behind our house. The neighborhood played out many a movie -  especially Tarzan - in that setting.  It also played an important  part in the book "The Bunkie Wars" written several years ago.

But what drives me to write is to correct the infamous Marksville  football game fight in 1962 - which was reported incorrectly.  Bunkie had been beating & not letting Marksville score any points for 
5 straight years. This of course meant they had not seen the "Cat  Skin" in a long time and were very unhappy.

The score was 6-0 and we were running out the clock using QB sneaks.  On the last play I took the ball and went up the middle much as I had  done the previous several plays. About 5 yards up the field evidently  the whistle blew; however, I didn't hear it and took off up the field. Since I was a pretty slow QB they eventually caught up with me 25 yards up the field. But it was a little guy who grabbed my jersey and hung on for dear life for another 10 yards till the rest of the Marksville team came up & piled on. Madison Firman was first on the scene and knocked several of them off me. At this point, I thought 
the game was over and walked off the field. But I heard a real commotion and turned back and saw pandemonium. Initially it was the two teams fighting & trying to prevent fights; but that faded out pretty soon. Then the Fathers started coming out of both stands and the real fight ensued.

Coach Foreman then started sending all the players into the locker room and from then on it was all hearsay to  me. I escaped with only a torn Jersey which I have to this day. But the most amazing thing to me in my later years was why I didn't just "take a knee" and prevent all this!  PS: for verification of this version, call "The Judge"  - James Mixon running back. I know it is hard to believe now; but he was once fast!

  Memory Lane:  "Castor Plunge" 'Jimmy Bruce': 11/23/2004: Hey fellow Bunkiens, do you remember Castor Plunge? I remember when we used to go from Bunkie to Castor Plunge in my dad's 1949 GMC pick up truck that he had painted twilight turquoise iridescent for a case of beer. The water was a natural stream and ice cold. They had changing houses, a bar room, a dance floor, slot machines, etc.

I tried to find it several months ago but to no avail. I found Castor Plunge Road but could not figure out where to turn to find the old pool, etc.,

I would appreciate it if anyone could help me find Castor Plunge again. I graduated from Bunkie High in 1963, so I enjoyed going there in the late 50's and early 60's. thanks."
  Memory Lane:  Lester "Boots" Rabalais: 02/27/2004: Found it again 11/28/04
The one memory i will always cherish was the friendships i made while working at the Bailey Theater in the early 1950's.  D J Armand Jr, R L (Peaches) Laborde, Harold (Bullet) Cullen, Carl (T-Ban) Escude, Big Spike and Little Spike Gates and of course Marcus Bordelon. Marcus and I visit often now, with him in Phoenix Az. and me in Los Angeles, Calif. If anyone knows where Harold Cullen is please let me know. My other best memory is joining the Air Force with Nicky Charrier who came up with the idea. In a period of 6 months the following joined the services Sherlyn, whose parents had the Railroad car diner into the Navy, Big Spike and Little Spike in the Air Force, then Nicky Charrier and myself, then Carl Escude, also all in the Air Force. We were a patriotic bunch back in those days. Don't forget the Bamboo Room..........Lester (Boots) Rabalais
  Memory Lane:  Sue Strauss Dupont ('67 BHS alum): 10/11/2004: Thanks for all the memories! I have really enjoyed reading all of them. I can barely remember Mr. Meredith. But...I do remember Mr. Fisher (Science) and Mrs. Fisher (English) and Mrs. Truax (History). And who could forget Mr. B, our dear French & civics teacher. Those were the good old days. Again, thanks for the memories. Sue Strauss Dupont ('67 BHS alum).
Memory Lane:  Carol Nettles Betzner: 10/11/2004:  My additionals would be living on the same street as Gree Griffin-my second to oldest best friend, having a crush on the same person (M.P. ) and performing the Maypole dance.
Thanks, Carol Nettles Betzner
  Memory Lane:  Virginia Clark Beridon: 10/11/2004: 
In 1997 I had a lot of fun putting together a booklet for my mother's (Errol Barre' Clark) first ever reunion of the Bunkie High School Class of 1939.  One of the pages listed the 1935-39 faculty (to the best of her memory!).  Several of those faculty members were teaching when I graduated from Bunkie High in 1966! Of course, two were just beginning to "court" as my mom would say.  Willie Lee Anders taught English.  P.W. Bordelon taught Arithmetic, Algebra and General Science.  Lucille Bubenzer taught French and Biology.  Yvonne Couvillion taught Business Courses.  Robert DeRouen taught English and American History. Marjorie Escude taught Biology, French and Physical Education.  C.G. Snoddy taught Algebra and Geometry.  Virginia Souilier taught Home Economics.  B.G. St. Romain taught Chemistry and Agriculture.  Mac Trimble taught Civics and Science.  Lola Tucker (later to become Lola St. Romain) taught Home Economics.  Roy White taught English and History.
  Memory Lane:  Jim Bruce: 10/11/2004: I remember in my senior year I was student body president. One of my tasks was to travel to marksville and address the whole school with the message not to become too rowdy during the marksville/bunkie game. that was a tough job. I didn't know if I was going to make it out alive.  great memories.

1961 - Mrs. Fisher asked our class what we thought of the possibility of a 3rd World War.
One of our most colorful class members answered her with the straightest face and speaking ever so clearly, "Well, Mrs. Fisher, if there is ever going to be a 3rd World War, I think it will definitely be in the future!"
1955 - A "burger basket" at The Bamboo which included a fabulous burger and an order of curly-q's was  a quarter and a coke was a nickel.
1956 - Had to have those cherry cokes from City Drug every daydale, i can think of a gazillion of these!  what fun!!  great idea.........xooxoxx
  Memory Lane:  Ron Laborde: 03/31/2003:  I remember all to well, the Sunday morning Mass, after a long night of partying, Saturday night as a young man. The priest was conducting mass and I was sitting against the wall. Without realizing it my head found the wall and asleep I went. The Priest finished, the silence woke me up, startled and of all things clapping. The looks I got from the elderly ladies shaking their heads.

  Memory Lane: Johnny Haydel -Mystery Chemical Engineer....on 03/31/2003:  A random collection of Bunkie memories

1940 to 1950

ˇ The night Jitney Jungle burned down and my volunteer firemen father was
up all night, sitting on the roof with a hose, being a hero.

ˇ The gunfight at the New York café where Curry Kojis, police chief, got
his little finger shot off.

ˇ The New York café had a delicious ham sandwich for 25 cents that we
saved up our money for

ˇ Working as a soda jerk at the drug store and giving my friends free

ˇ Lash LaRue coming to town and me getting a picture with him.

ˇ Little Beaver coming to town and running around with the town hoods who
all eventually ended up in jail for stealing bicycles.

ˇ Digging behind the sofa cushions trying to find 9 cents to go to the
movie, then spending all day Saturday there seeing double feature cowboy
movies and a serial plus a cartoon.

ˇ 18 mile trips to grandmothers in Plaucheville. My mother would fry a
chicken for the trip I would bring a stack of comic books and a blanket.
We would eat chicken and throw bones out of the window.  My father wouldn’
t stop for restroom breaks, we had to use a paper bag, which I always
threw at passing cars, but we would stop at every bar on the way for a
beer for my dad.  We always had a flat or two.  The trip usually took
about 4 hours.

ˇ The Hot Tamale man with his little cart on Main Street.  We were
convinced he made them out of cats.

ˇ Hiking to Prosser’s diary and hanging around all day. They didn’t mind.
I was fascinated with the stainless steel equipment and pasteurizer.
Maybe that’s why I became a process engineer.

ˇ Hiking to the overpass by the Blue Moon and sliding down the Johnson
grass on the side on pieces of cardboard.

ˇ Our Post Office box was Box 1. I thought we were special.

ˇ Dad buying a used house from Amarada Oil field and bringing it home on a
truck. He added a couple of rooms himself and it served as a house.

ˇ The “maid” that lived with us when we had the feed store/flower shop.
When I was bad my father made her spank me because he didn’t have the
heart to.

ˇ Living next to Dr. Melancon who let me read his encyclopedias and
encouraged me to go to college.

ˇ Endless summers when we ran around shoeless and shirtless, climbing
trees and constantly playing war.

ˇ Sneaking into Avoyelles Bank when they got the first air conditioning in
town and hiding under the counter till they saw us and chased us out.

ˇ Playing war under the Bailey Hotel.

ˇ Camping with the Boy scouts where all we did was chop down trees and
exchange misinformation about sex.

ˇ Initiation into the "Bailey Theatre Club”.  We had to sneak in on a
Tuesday night (dish raffle night) when there was a full house, and go to
the first row and crawl under the seats, startling the patrons until we
emerged at the back, completely black with filth.

ˇ Going to the depot to watch the train come in, for entertainment.

ˇ Mother teaching Lee Bailey how to cook.

ˇ Going to St. Anthony’s. The hurricane blew down the old church that had
been converted into a cafeteria.  We had no school that day because of a
religious holiday, which the nuns said was further proof that there was a

ˇ First Communion when we were lined up in the street at 6 AM in our white
shirts and short pants, with our striped boxer shorts showing thorough,
and Paul Plasiance being sent home because he told Sister that he had
eaten a hamburger after midnight.

ˇ Getting out of class to go to altar boy practice and just goofing off,
not learning anything.  Then when I had to serve the first time I realized
I didn't know anything and I just froze. Jerome Kojis who was in the
congregation leaped over the rail pushed me aside and took over, saving
the mass. My parents were mortified. I was kicked out of the altar boys.
So my father brought the nuns a fruitcake and poured a pint of 4 roses
whiskey in it. I was reinstated.  The next day and the nuns asked for the

1950 to 1954

ˇ The big mystery of who painted obscene algebra equations on Mrs. Hatley’
s car.

ˇ The midnight paintings of the Ag building, even polka dot.

ˇ Running the drive in theatre
ˇ Selling tickets
ˇ Running the concession stand
ˇ Running the projector, and skipping reels so we could go home early (no
one complained-no cars moved after we closed down).

ˇ Working at Kelly’s studio for 8 cents an hour and getting paid not in
cash but with overpriced broken cameras. The girl that worked there was
married and her husband was in Korea and everyone was in love with her.

ˇ Summers working in the cornfields making hybrid corn for 50 cents an
hour with my friends.

ˇ My father closing down the Oak Tavern every night then going to the Blue
Moon till it closed.  He then would bring me a bacon and biscuit sandwich
at 2 am and wake me up and make me eat it in my bed.

ˇ Eating Pool Doo (My father hated meatless Fridays). He was convinced
that since Pool Doos could swim under water we could eat them on Friday
and not go to hell.  They tasted like oily mud.

ˇ The two deaf linotype workers that lived in our garage apartment that
worked for the Bunkie Record teaching me sign language.

ˇ Bamboo Drive in where we made at least one stop every day and it was the
last stop before we finally went home.

ˇ Working at Dairy Queen. All they had was ice milk at that time. Cleaning
the machine every morning was nasty from the lactic acid smell.

ˇ Working at the Bailey and Fox Theater for 35 cents and hour.

ˇ Some teachers
ˇ Mr. Goette
ˇ Mr. Frank
ˇ Mrs. Strawitz
ˇ Coach Evans, who said I should forget about sports and just hit the
ˇ Mrs. Hatley
ˇ Mr. St. Romain, responsible for me becoming a Chemical Engineer.
ˇ Mrs. St. Romain
ˇ Mr. Sharpe
ˇ Mr. Courtney who taught us some things not in the curriculum.""""

  Memory Lane: Entered by David L. Maxwell' on 04/03/04:  It was the 1967-1968 school year.  I was a senior, finishing my 4th year in FFA.  Come to think of it those were my grades, F F A!  Anyway, one day in class Mr. Nash, who was the teacher @ that time, indicated he wanted to put a door from the back room of the Ag building, opening into the shop area.  Cutting it out was no problem; he just needed a door and frame to complete the job.  I needed all the "brownie points" I could get, so I told him me and two of my buddies would get it for him.  (It's been a long time, my memory is not what it used to be and I have forgotten who my two "partners-in-crime" were.  Sorry guys).  Anyway, we grabbed some tools, a crow bar, couple of hammers, etc. and headed to the Shop Building, which was on the ground floor of the old high school.  The two top floors were condemned; therefore no one was supposed to go up there.  One of my buddies held the attention of the teacher, Mr. Dufore, while I and the other guy snuck to the top floor.  Within a short time we had the door and frame taken out and ready to sneak back to the Ag building.  Mr. Nash, as I recall, was very proud of us, and did not question where it all came from.  It was installed, and looked quite professional.  A few days later Mr. Dufore came to visit, noticed the door and frame and asked Mr. Nash where it came from.  I don't recall Mr. Nash's exact words, but Mr. Dufore left in a huff, knowing full well it was HIS door and frame and there was nothing he could do about it!

Memory Lane: Entered by Dale Riche' on 06/13/01:  As an 11 year old boy, who had just lost his father, I learned what Santa Claus really meant.  He was not just a man in a red suit.  He came as the real Mr. Bill Kojis.  My Dad was deceased for about 6 months when my Mother experienced a devastating financial hardship.  She told me I would have to find a job to help feed the family.  I walked to Mr. Bill Kojis's service station, and told him,"Mr. Bill, I need a job today."  He replied,"Dale, you are only 11, but I know this is very important to you."  Then I replied,"I need my first day's pay in advance."  Mr. Kojis reached in his pocket, gave me my pay, and said,"I'll see you in the morning."

Now you know that when I see Santa Claus, I realize what a good, charitable human being Mr. Bill Kojis really was. Bunkie really was blessed by having that man in a red suit each year.

Memory Lane: Entered by Ronnie Dupree on 01/30/01:  Jimmy Earles, Joe Callahan, & Several Others In My Senior Year Typing Class Might Remember This.  Mr. Melvin Sharpe Was Our Teacher,As Well As The Teacher Of Most Our Parents. I Had Complained Many Many Times To Him About The "Old" Royal
Manual Typewriter That Had Been Assigned To Me. The Keys Would "Stick" No Matter How Slow You Typed. Now All Of You Know That We Had Speed Test. I Suffered Thru Typing Test For The First Three Six Weeks. Mr. Sharpe Would Do Nothing To Help Me Out. Wellllllll- It Came Time For The Mid-Term Typing Test, & Guess What! I Started The Test & The Keys Went To Sticking Again. I Thank Mr. Sharpe For Assigning Me To The Back Row, By The Window, By The Fire Escape Facing The Football Field. "Out The Window The Typewriter Went". Mr. Sharpe Almost Hit The Ceiling & Almost Had A Heartattack. He Grabbed Me By The Arm & Down Three Flights Of Steps, Missing Most Of Them,He Drug Me To Mr. Couvillions Office. He Was So Mad & So Red In The Face That He Could Hardly Speak. I Had To End Up Paying $40.00 For That Piece Of C--- Of A Typewriter & Believe Me, That Was A Lot Of Money Back Then. Even Our Senior Rings Didn't Cost That Much. Needless To Say, I Got A "F" On The Midterm Test But Still Managed To Pass For The Year.

It Was Stupid To Throw The Typewriter Out The Window But I Don't Regret Doing It To This Day.

Memory Lane:  Entered by Bill Hunt on 12/31/00:  On a fairly warm December night in about 1951, the Bunkie Boys and Girls basketball team traveled all the way to Marksville via our best school bus.  The rivalry between these two small towns was always at a peak, however for some reason it was far greater than usual.  I think Bunkie had possibly beaten Marksville that year in football, so they were still "smarting" from that.  I happened to be a second stringer on the basketball team so I was there that night.  We apparently had a few extra seats on the school bus and  two or three other non players rode with us.  After the games were over, the coach hurried us into the bus to possibly eliminate any type confrontation between the Bunkie and Marksville students.  Before pulling off from the parking space, coach Ralph Edwards noticed that one of the "riding" students was missing, and about that time the school bus door banged loudly and opened.  In jumped the missing student with no uncertainty of haste, with his shirt mostly torn off and in shreds.  We were told in the following few days, that pieces of his shirt was worn by the Marksville students as a trophy like emblem.  That Bunkie student is now a local M.D. and a very fine State Senator from Bunkie.  He also married one of Marksville's favorite high school majorettes thus, I'm sure, eliminating all of the rivalry between Bunkie and Marksville.  Bill Hunt, Athens, AL

Big Dummies:
  Entered by Pat Ryan on 09/30/00:  In 1960 Charles Griffin and I were so excited to have our new Big Red Bunkie football jackets that we wore them to the Pelican Club in Marksville on Saturday night. That's when you could get in the Pelican if you could drive.

We may have been bragging a little since Marksville hadn't scored a point on Bunkie in our football careers.  We met up with Billy Mixon and were having a big time till we noticed the famous and notorious Marksville gang of NoYo,Jap and the Boys circling us like sharks.  It then dawned on us that we werewaving a Big Red flag in their faces with our Bunkie football jackets.  NoYo, Jap and the Boys were in major fights outside the Pelican almost every Saturday night.
Being famous Bunkie football players and lovers, and not famous street fighters, we felt the girls would like us better with our teeth.  We then decided to make a quick exit and high tail it out of enemy territory. Charles and I jumped in my '53 Pontiac and Billy in his Buick and we didn't look back until we got back home.
We then decided that if we were going back to the Pelican the Big Red football jackets were staying home.  We had may good times at the Pelican on Saturday nights and at Lee's on Friday night.
Good Memories of Bunkie and Avoyelles,

RAllor@aol.com <RAllor@aol.com> Memory Lane:  Entered by Russ Allor on 09/29/00:  In reading anectotes about Bunkie I was reminded of an incident that happened  during my sophmore year at LSU (1953)  I and a close friend had applied for a 3 man dormitory room because they were large. We had no idea who the third person would be but we thought the two of us could handle anything. Our new roommate arrived a day later. We both were pleased and exchanged some introductory remarks. Then he surprised me by saying, "You are from Bunkie, arent you?" I confirmed his suspicion and asked how he knew.  I remember the words to this day, "All you people from Bunkie smile alike." 
BMARCH@BELLSOUTH.NET Memory Lane:  Entered by Steve Saucier on 09/29/00:  I'm dong a project in Marksville and Dwight Descant is the contractor, he  sent me a copy of an E mail that lists you as tiger  sports info director,  Please include me in your mail out.  The incident  they are talking about in 62 was something else. I was left guard on defense, the ref was standing right behind me, He blew his  whistle and pushed me on the butt, so I stood  up, Brother Knoll came shooting past and Wayne Jeansonne who was playing  middle linebacker, punched him out. Talk  about a fight, I can still remember them hauling Big John Regard off in  handcuffs.  Bubba Laborde was on the bench and came running into the fight with his helmet off, He had a shiner for two weeks.
Memory Lane:  Entered by Pat Ryan on 09/29/00: Hi Folks, Yesterday I was visiting with Lionel Darce, one of my associates at AXA and  he said he had an interesting thing happen on Memorial Day. Lionel and his wife live in Pineville, La. and were going to barbecue  Memorial Day but decided not to.  His wife asked him to go to the Sonic Drive  Inn and get her a sandwich.  He got there and a young girl skated up, and took  his order.  When she brought it to him she asked him if he were a veteran.  He said yes he was a Veteran of Korea and Vietnam.  ( In fact he was a Green  Beret and medic in Vietnam three and a half years. One year was normal tour).  The young girl told Lionel she wanted to thank him for her freedom.  Lionel  told her he got out of the Army in 1968, and that was the first time anyone  had told him that.  He gave her a $10.00 tip and left.  Lionel  said you don't know what that meant to him.  I don't know if the girl did it on her own or Sonic asked them to, but it was a great idea.
Mciiimds@aol.com Memory Lane:  Entered by Mary Charlotte McConnell Shannon on 09/23/00:  Dear Bunkiens, Only in Bunkie something like this can happen.  Does anyone remember during the mid-Fifties ---when we had lunch hours at BHS---going to the Blue Moon to dance?  We had such a great time!  All in fun.  There's no place like home and the memories that it brings.

Lavergne.Starkey@coors.com Memory Lane: Entered by Lavergne Reed Starkey on 09/22/00:It's Biology class and we're talking about disecting things.  Steve Mayer (remember him?!) asks - Mr. Meredith, can we disect a cow?  Well, Mr. Meredith got all nervous and shook up and said - Steve, you know we can't disect a cow; how are we going to get it up here (3rd floor)?  You know a cow can't climb stairs!  Needless to say, the class erupted in hoots & Mr. Meredith had a heck of a time trying to get us back under control.  Another fond memory - HUA Bernard - remember Hua the janitor?  Everywhere you looked - every map that was raised, every piece of paper on a bulletin board that was turned over - there were millions of HUAs written everywhere! Boy did we have fun with that guy!  So glad that you and Dale are doing this - it's GREAT.  Keep up the good  work.

Descant on 09/20/00:  On 9/14/00, as I poured my 1st cup of coffee at about 4:45 AM, I felt a warm sensation on the top of my bare feet.  To my dismay, it was coffee running off the top of the cabinet counter.  It seems I was pouring my coffee to a cup that I was holding upside down.  The sad part is, I was watching this evolution take place and did not respond until the coffee hit my feet.  I know this borders on 'Memory Loss" also, I'll let you make the determination.  
webmistress@bunkie.com Memory Lane: Entered by Sandra Juneau Descant on 09/20/00:This event took place in my Biology class taught by dear Mr. Meredith.  It seems during that time in my life I had a great knack for whistling like a bird with my mouth closed.  Mr. Meredith would go bonkers.  He could not figure out where the sound was coming from.  This went on for most of the school year.  One day as I chirped away, oblivious to my surroundings, I opened my eyes and there was Mr. Meredith...about six inches from me staring me right in the face.  Needless to say I was on my way to Mr. C's office for the rest of the day.  
daledescant@bunkie.com Memory Loss:  Entered by Dale J.

ok y'all---we share these with you in hopes you will share your Bloopers with us.  We hope this will be another successful page within the annals of www.bunkie.com.
