Mayhew is considered one of the top ranking coaches in Texas. His first and main objective is to teach boys fundamentals and then instill into their minds the advantages of powerful running plays, thus he develops not only All- State backs and linemen but also boys that gain national recognition and honor. By combining experience and knowledge of boys and by coaching two of its three State Champion teams, Mr. Mayhew has established a fine record for himself at Abilene High School. W. K. BENTLEY Working with nearly every sport during the year, Mr. Bentley contributes a great deal to athletics. Having been here four years, he has made friends with many con- testants in all fields of inter- scholastic sports. HOWARD L. MILLER Much of the success of the Black and Gold elevens must be attributed to its line coach, Howard Miller. His untiring ability to make his charges give just a little more than before is the reason that many an enemy back has been stopped and many more will be. DEWEY A. MAYHEVV' I. B. NEELY To Work with younger boys and prepare them tor big competition is the hard task of Mr. Neely. He is especially effective in arous- ing an interest in boys to know and love the game, thus is a valuable asset to the 'athletic department. 1 BENTLEY MILLER NEELY Page 9 ABILENE EAGLES GENE DALTON Quarterback- Two years Dalton was the field-general and commander of the aerial attacks, for his passing was among the hast in the District.

Page JH SMITH NARRELL SEASON REVIEW By Tom Burditt ABILENE 7- BRECKENRIDGE 56 ln a pre-season tilt the Eagles found the Breckenridge Buckies far too powerful to cope with. i From the first the Warbirds were in deep water, with the Buckies scoring very ofteng l however, late in the fourth quar- ter Smith broke off right tackle and reached the goal un- touched. The point after touch- i down was good. This was the only Eagle score. l l Smith goes around right end ABILENE UfSWEETWATER l9 Operating behind a stalwart line, the Mustangs of Sweetwater swept over the Eagles with a bril- liant running attack. Although the line held for a short time, the experienced boys from Sweetwater finally pushed over a score in the first quarter. Scoring again in the first and third, the Mustangs were riding highg nevertheless, the Eagles scared them in the fourth when they covered a fumble on the op- ponents' 40-yard line. Passes from Dalton to Sellers and Iones gave the Yllfarbirds a first down outside the penetration line. After losing ten yards in three downs, a last-down pass for ten yards came short of a first down. The defensive work of the line and the passing combination of Dalton to Sellers were outstanding. ABILENE O--THOMAS IEFFERSON l3 ln the third nocturnal tilt of the year, the Eagles suffered another defeat at the hands of the San Antonians. Neither of the leff's two touchdowns came from long bruising drives, but were made in short order in the closing minutes of the first half. The occasional offensive power of Sellers and Dalton was all the Warbirds had to rely upon, and only once did the Eagles threaten, going to the Mustangs' 5-yard line before giving the ball up after four unsuccessful attempts for a score. Abilene seemed to play the lefferson Mustangs an even matched game at all times, making twelve first downs to the eight of San Antonio, but never found the glint that would have sent them in search of pay dirt. By this time, however, the boys had learned many tricks they would never learn anywhere but in actual play. Narrell pulls through a tight spot f rf- rf W ' l Yea, Team! Eagles, Fight! Yea, Team!

Gene bucks the Odessa Broncos ABILENE 7fODESSA l9 Playing their first game on their own field seemed to be all the Eagles needed. Early in the first quarter Dalton chalked up a tally, and the point after touchdown was good. Being ahead for the first time in the season might have proved to be a good omen, but trouble was ahead. The rest of the first half was the Eaglesg however, in the last of the second quarter Odessa scored. They failed to kick goal, and still Abilene led by one point. Before the second half was nine plays old, the Bed Horses of Odessa were leading 13 to 7, and the rest of the game was the visiting team's, since they scored again before the final gun. Ables and Brown were standouts in the line, while the defensive work of I. lones in the backfield was notable. ABILENE 7eMlDLAND 45 Losing a heart-breaker the week before proved too much for Abilene, and Midland found that they could score nearly at will against the boys in Black and Gold. Trailing by l3 points in the early stages of the game, the Eagles finally managed to stage a scoring spree and came through with their only counter. On a 46-yard pass from Dalton to l. lones, the Abilene team went to the Midland 4-yard line. Sellers then went over from the l-yard marker for the only Warbird score. The conversion for extra point was good. As in games before, Sellers was the mainstay in offense and defense, Dalton's passing was good, and Stovall's performance was his best of the season. fand over for a touchdown! ki, E My aff my r L Fight, Eagles, Fight!

Sellers tucks it away ABILENE l3ieLAMESA 14 ln the sixth game of the year, the Eagles went to Larnesa, expecting a much harder game than they were given. lt proved to be the closest game of the year, with Abilene losing by only one point. When first downs are considered, one wonders how Lamesa ever reached pay dirt twice, for the War- birds made thirteen first downs to their opponents' eight. Narrell scored in the first quarter, climaxing a long drive. The point after touchdown was missed, this proving to be the downfall of the team. lt was the fourth quarter before the Black and Gold machine began to roll again. Sellers went over and kicked goal, but was one point short of a tie. Although Dalton did not figure in either of the tallies, his running stood out. ABILENE U-ARLINGTON HEIGHTS 6 Abilene lost their seventh game of the year to Arlington Heights of Fort Worth. Being scored on in the initial period seemed little handicap, for the Eagles frequently penetrated the Yellow lackets' 20-yard stripe, only to lose the ball on downs or by a fumble. Seemingly outplaying their opponents, as in the week before, the Warbirds rolled up twice as many first downs and more than two hundred yards from scrimmage to the Arlington Heights' scant fifty-two yards. All Eagle-backers' hopes were lost when Sellers went to the lacket 3-yard line and then fumbled, the ball being covered by Arlington Heights in the end zone for a touchback.

Abilene's last score came when Dalton threw a pass to Sellers in the flat, Sellers running eighty-sixfydrds for the touchdown. This was one of the most spectacular runs of the afternoon, and it put the Eagles back into the "old ball game." The Steers tightened down, nevertheless, and once again the Abilene boys had to be good losers. ABILENE 9fSAN ANGELO l3 The Turkey Day tilt proved to be an exciting fray for the fans. At the half the score board read: "Abilene 7, San Angelo G," but trouble started for the Eagles in the first play of the second half. Fumbling the kickoff, the Warbirds found themselves defending their goal when they should have been on the offense. San Angelo tallied almost immediately, but the game was far from over. Gain- ing a safety after they had pushed the Bobcats back to the l-yard stripe, the Eagles tried desperately, even until the end, for one more counter. When the final whistle sounded, however, the Abilene team was still thirty yards from the double stripes and victory. The bearers of the Black and Gold had lost, but they had learned to lose like sportsmen. A Turkey Day pass ct MT ti That you may bring T AHS victory.

To the extent that We have applied ourselves to our respective duties, to that extent have We profited. lf we have neglected opportunities, let us now resolve to make stepping stones of our past mistakes. May each of you reap dividends throughout your lives from the information gleaned from your textbooks, from habits of right conduct formed, from the mental development achieved, from the inspiration obtained from association with your teachers, and from the friendships made during your stay in the Abilene High School.

S. FATHERREE, B. A. Assistant Superintendent ln my library there is a large collection of yearbooks, both high school and college. l call them my "Encyclopedia ot Friends." lt is a source ot extreme pleasure to refer to those books occasionally and renew triendships and relive happy experiences. The Wealth that they contain tor me now is in exact proportion to the investment l made in triends and satis- factory experiences during my school days. It is my earnest desire that you may have stored up in this book treasures that will grow in wealth because ot the associa- tions ot your happy school and college days. Sincerely yours, l-HLLIARD S. PATHERREE re 112 ADMINISTBATIGN BYBON ENGLAND, B. A., M. A. Principal Feelings of genuine regret always attend the departure of a graduating senior class. Strong friendships and close associa- tions must be temporarily forsaken. The teacher's compensation is drawn from the fact that most of these friendships are solidified and deepened by separation. Life does not now begin for those who leave at the year's endg it merely takes a turn in a process begun at birth. This new turn will mean what one wishes and strives to make it mean. To those who steadfastly try to interpret life's new challenges and meet them accordingly, the turn will mean continued usefulness, happiness, and achievement. To those who lightly consider these new responsibilities, a new turn will result in confusion, maladjustment, and temporary failure. My wish for the graduating seniors is that they thoughtfully approach this new departure, resolved to sacrifice selfish inter- est for the good of all. Sincerely yours, BYRON ENGLAND ADMINISTRATICDN lOE C. HUMPHREY, B. A., M. A. Assistant Principal Six ot the happiest years oi my lite have been spent in grand old Abilene High. Never shall l be able to torget the many pleasant experiences of these years. The rich friendships formed among all ot you are the treasure l carry from this great insti- tution. May all the years ahead in your earthly journey be tilled With a sincere determination to be true and loyal citizens. Your community and your government depend upon each oi you. l have iaith and contidence that you will successfully answer the challenge: " 'Tis not what man does that exalts him, but what man would do." Sincerely, lQE C. HUMPHREY age 45 ADMINISTRATICDN MRS. EDITH C. SMITH, B. A. Student Counselor "The words of the good are like a staff in a slippery place." The millions oi words which you, dear students oi Abilene High, may whisper, speak, or shout into the ears oi your comrades will be your most vital contribution toward their strength-or their weakness 5 toward their happiness---or their sorrow. Would you do great deeds? "Words are deeds." Do you long to rule? "Ideas rule the world." Would you go torth to battle? "Speech is God's mightiest weapon." May you gather strong and beau- tiful ideas from Shakespeare, from Browning, from the Bible, from your own minds and hearts--from many and varied sources- and scatter them like rnanna to ieed those who are hungering and thirsting for wisdom and strength, tor joy and comfort.

Winn' BASKETBALL HQWABD L. MILLER Considering Mr. Millers athletic record while in Abilene High School, one could never wonder at the splendid basketball teams he has produced for this school. The boys that play under him have the utmost confidence in his judgment, and to find a better disciplined team on any floor would be a difficult task, indeed. Mr. Miller has a record that is yet to be equalled: he is the only coach to take Eagle guintets to the State Meet twice in succession. Because he is a man of few words, when he speaks his boys listen. The re- sult? Fine basketball teams. Much of the fame that Abilene High School has received through this sport can be traced to its coach-a sportsman Hu . and a gentleman-Howard L. Miller.

The most polished player on the squad, Freeman was responsible indirectly for many of the points the Warbirds scored. Guardf-Height 5' 8" Dub was the most dependable reserve from the second string and was a "dead-eye Dick" when shooting for free goals. All the fight and determination that is traf ditional of a true Eagle, Dub pos- sessed, and there is no doubt that he will be a better guard next year. Center 'Height 6' 4M Being the tallest man on the squad was one advantage that Patton had under the basket.

Center-f Height 5' llw Gene was another iootball play- er who rnade good on this years cage crew.

SEASON REVIEW By Tom Burditt The Eagle basketball squad had tive of the fastest cagers in the district, a tact which accounted tor their staying in the race so long. Abilene opened the season with a win over Tuscola by a 26 to I2 count. Hamlin, Highland, and Stanton were the next victims ot the Eagles, and apparently the 'War- birds were on the rampage. In the second round ot the Colo- rado tournament the towering Steers from Big Spring defeated Abilene by the score ot 26 to l8. Victories over Sweetwater, San Angelo, Brownwood, and a loss to Breckenridge were the outcome ot the next tive games. Having ended the practice season by beating San Angelo and losing to Sweetwater and Breckenridge again, the Eagles entered district play. Meeting Hamlin first, a team which the Eagles should have defeated easily, Abilene found themselves on the short end ot the final score by 25 to 21. So the 1939-40 basketball season closed with the Warbirds boasting of nine wins and tive losses and a six- point better average on each game than their opponents. But they were just not able to click when clicking was most needed. SMITH . ERESHMAN BASKETBALL Top Row: R. B. Leach, Aubrey Cole, Richard Owen, Stanley Stevenson, Eugene Ford.

Recognizing the tact that composers, like other great men, are human after all, the Fine Arts club study the lives oi composers along with their works. Because mu- sic appreciation is their guiding principle, the members have good reason to look for- ward to club day. Sometimes outside artists furnish the entertainment, but more often members ot the club present the programs. All clubs were privileged by invitation to attend the Fine Arts Meeting held April 2, l94O. At this meeting, which was in truth a special chapel program, the in- creasing trend towards appreciation ot tine music in the student body became ap- parent. The delightful program, with the exception ot one novelty number, con- sisted oi all-classical selections.

"Tighten that strut a little bit." You are now listening to the Model Airplane Club broadcasting from their studio Room 5. And now to tell a little about the members of this club. The boys learn not only the fundamentals of airplane manufacture but also the principles of aeronautical engineering and mechanics. Entering several meets, they always manage to bring back a few places. They build rubber and gasoline powered motors, besides building planes for exhibit. Late last spring they had an exhibit of their work in a local store. OFFICERS ' Fall Spring Raymond Daniel . . , . . ,...,. Raymond Daniel President Cfene Burch .,..,..., ...,,...,.....,..

A bit of the charm of Mexico City, the grandeur of old Bome, and the frivolity of Paris was brought to the members through their correspondence. Besides learning new facts about old places, they made many lasting friendships with foreign boys and girls. Since the War has begun in Europe, the members have not been able to correspond with the involved countriesg therefore the club has turned to establishing friendships with the Latin-Americas more and more.

TRACK First How: Robert Schultz, Charles Box, Bob Cecil, Stanley Iarrell, Parramore Sellers, Dubb Duff. Second How: Grady Vlfeir, lrvin King, C. I. Collier, Iimmy Arrell, Horace Bradley, Bill Davis. Third Row: Sam Smith, Gene Dalton, Charles Narrell, Will Smith, Weldon Rhodes, W. K. Bentley. As soon as basketball season was finished, Coach Bentley issued his call for the track boys to report. ln the first days of February the runners, high jumpers, hurdlers, and all the other boys worked out consistently each afternoon in the gymnasium. Many of those who had gridiron records and a few who had had experience on the hard-wood court could be found among the squad. With such seasoned material Coach Bentley might have expected more than he obtained at the first meet that was held in San Angelo. As far as the points scored are concerned, the meet was unsuccessful, but the boys showed new interest in anticipation of the District Meet that was held the following week. At District Meet the team came home with three y y ...ug- places: King finished fourth in the lUU-yard dash, Sellers placed fourth. in the 220-yard low hurdlesg and A f . ' the mile relay team, composed of Narrell, King, A y Schultz, and larrell, captured third place honors in A V ' Q the relay event. All of these runners were, therefore, 1 . entitled to enter Begional Meet that was held in Abi- A A A f lene, April 20. "On your mark, get set . .

Hamilton, Billy Dee King, Glenn Gordon. Third How: laiiies Cullar, Ioliii Shirley, I. W. Sorrells, Bay Preslar. The boys on the team this year played more matches than ever before. Matches with Breckenridge, Abilene Christian College, McMurry, Clyde, Sweetwater, and Botan gave the netters all the competition desired. ln a meet with Breckenridge early in the season, both juniors and seniors lost all matches but senior singles. ln an unfinished tournament held a week later in Abilene, again the Eagle players were beaten early in play. A dual meet with Sweetwater provided the Warbird net- ters with their first victories. Wright, senior singles, beat lvy of Sweetwater 6-O, 4-6, 6-3. Atkinson and Burditt, senior doubles, defeated Hawley and Stevenson 2-6, 6-2, 6-3. Gordon, junior singles, also won his match. -- Cn March 30 Abilene senior team entered the San Angelo Invitation Tourna- ment. Again the boys made a good showing, both singles and doubles advancing to finals. ln finals Wright downed lvy of Sweetwater 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, but Atkinson and Burditt tasted defeat at the hands of Stevenson and Hawley, Sweetwater doubles, by a 6-4, 7-5, 6-O score. At District Meet Burditt and Bowers lost in the first round to Hagsdale and Bogart of Botan. The score was 4-6, 6-4, 6-O. Wright, however, went to the finals by beating Botan and Anson, but in the final match that lasted four hours he finally bowed to Cfrubbs of Colorado, after playing five sets. The scores were 6-l, 2-6, 6-1,9-11,7-5. Both Bowers and W' right will return next year, and some of the upcoming junior players are King, Hig- Senior ,letters don, Hamilton, Gordon, and Sorrells.

Second Row: Miss Vivian Liddell, Ruth Hamrrond, lanice Robertson, Olga Moore, Louise Page. Perhaps in no other sport has there been more interest created in the past year than in tennis among girls. Starting with little material, Miss Vivian Liddell devel- oped in her three seniors and three juniors players who were a credit to the school. ln the first and only dual meet of the year, the Baird tennis girls found the Abilene girls exceedingly hard to handle. Ruth Hammond, senior singles, defeated Baird singles 6-2, 7-5. Betty lo Delano, junior singles, defeated Baird junior netters by a 6-4, 6-l count. The junior doubles team, composed of Blair Morton and lanelle Warren, downed Baird junior doubles 6-2, 6-l. At the San Angelo lnvitation Tournament the girls again gave a good account of themselves. Although the senior doubles, composed of Louise Page and Merlyn Mattes, lost in the first round, their first round opponents were the experienced San Angelo doubles. Ruth Hammond, senior singles, also lost her first match. The next week-end was District Meet. There Louise Page, playing singles, advanced to the finals by drub- bing Loraine in the first round, Wylie in semifinals, and losing to Sweetwater in the finals by a score of 6-2, 6-2. Merlyn Mattes and Ruth Hammond went to the semifinals in doubles by downing Stamford 6-4, 6-2, but losing next to Roby 6-2, 6-6. Thus ended the season with the best showing of girls tennis in recent years. Q Girls tennis team Page 107 ttf' s T 'fi , f Leahmon Bryant Taylor Paul D. B. Weatherby Douglas Cowsert Wiley Connally W. O. Maxwell, lr. I. I. McClure Charles Morman Golf, at the present time, is not an interscholastic sport. This did not, however, dampen the interest of the six or seven golfers whom Mr. 'Weatherby finally selected to represent Abilene High School. ln the first meet with McMurry, the Eagle golfers defeated the lndians by winning 2 out of 3 matches, and tying 2 others. By an even more decisive score of 4 matches to l, the Abilene golfers next defeated Abi- lene Christian College players. The first high school competition came from Colorado golfers. The Warbirds again proved their superiority by defeating them by the same score of 4 matches to l. On the first out-of-town trip the golf teams were again victorious in drubbing the Sweetwater Mustangs by 4 matches to 2. With this record to present, one can easily see why Mr. Weatherby could boast of one of the best golf teams he has had in re cent years. Though many of his golfers are graduating seniors, next year Abilene High will again be well represented by many younger boys that are playing this year.
