November 11, 2010 - Election activities for the 1961 BHS
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.
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.
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
"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!

"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
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."

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

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.
taught Arithmetic, Algebra and General Science.
taught French and Biology.
Yvonne Couvillion taught Business Courses.
taught English and American History.
Marjorie Escude taught Biology, French
and Physical Education. C.G.
Snoddy taught Algebra and Geometry.
taught Home Economics. B.G. St.
Romain taught Chemistry and Agriculture.
taught Civics and Science. Lola
Tucker (later to become Lola St. Romain) taught
Home Economics. Roy White

Memory Lane: Jim Bruce:
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.

1960 - The most "magical" night in
the history of BHS as we went to the Winter Carnival on an
ordinary night in Feb. and emerged at midnight to "the big snow"
that stuck for several days! A lot of us went to Gree Griffin's
and our parents let us stay all night and play in the snow.
1961 - Mrs. Fisher asked our class what we thought of the
possibility of a 3rd World War.
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 day.

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!

He replied,"Dale, you are only 11, but I know this is very

gave me my pay, and said,"I'll see you in the morning."

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
