A. 1955 FLASHLlGHT nts Vlews of bm 1 DEDICATEE We, the staff, dedicate this, the Flash- light of '55, to Miss Ruby Compere, who is deserving of the honor we bestow up- on her. A loyal Eagle for thirty years, and sponsor of the Future Homemakers of America Club, she is a friend to every- one and is willing to help those in need of aid. We hope that she will always remember this as "her" book. Miss Compere instructs one of her students about the proper wgy to seam up a skirt. O These are the views of the year 1954-1955 that the Flash- light staff saw "THROUGH THE KEY- HOLE" of the doorways that have opened to hundreds of students of Abilene High School for over thirty years. We hope these views will serve as a reminder of the life, activities, and friendships of this last year in Dear Old Abilene High. We invite you to H 1 take a peek through these , 4 r, I f' ,.

Roberts Mr. Roy Skaggs Mr. Morgan Jones, Jr.-Vice President The Board of Trustees is a group of citizens serving their community by assuming the important responsibility of directing and managing the Abilene Public Schools. We of Abilene High School wish to express our sincere appreciation for the time and effort they have spent in making our school system one of the best in the land. 10 Mr. A. E. WELLS, Superintendent This is the last year for the present high school building to be used as a high school, so, as we leave this building, the classrooms the corridors, andthe campus, will cause us to recall many treasured memories of good times as well as some heartaches. When we enter the new school plant, may we all realize the building is only a minor part of any school. The students and faculty are the part that really count. May the true Eagle spirit find fertile soil in our hearts and in our minds, and spring forth in all of our activities of work and play. May it remind us of the accomplishments of the past, and in turn give us a greater determination and effort to press on to new and greater goals in the future by helping us as individuals, as well as a school, to be real "Champions of all the West." wwf A. E. WELLS I1 Mr. Esco Webb, Principal A MESSAGE FROM OUR ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL It is a real pleasure to congratulate each of you as members of the student body of Abilene High School.

NAIL A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL It is a ioy and a privilege to have an opportunity to work with this outstanding group of students and faculty' members of Abilene High School.

H. S. The members, three hundred fifty-two in number, met early in September to elect officers and a nominee for class queen. , The big events for the seniors began when their nominee became the Flashlight Queen, and when they received their rings in October. These events were followed by Senior Radio Day and Senior Follies in March. The last chapter of their history, completed in May, was filled with such events as the picnic, the play, and the farewell assembly. Then came the long awaited May 29 and 30 when the seniors had their Baccalaureate Service and the Commencement Exercise, followed with a reception by the National Honor Society. The teachers who sponsored the Senior Class this year were Miss Self, chairman, Miss Baggett, Mr. Groseclose, Mr. Kennamer,sMiss Lambert, Mr. McCollum, Mr. Moser, Miss Walton, Mrs. Bishop, Miss Cdffey, Mr. Crews, Miss Griffin, Mrs. Henagan, Mrs. Hicks, Miss McAdamsS,Miss Meyer, and x N, X tr 'i Mrs. Turner. if X .

The Eagles, looking very sharp on defense and rolling in 6 easy touchdowns, made mincemeat out of a lumpy Highland Park eleven. In the next week's game, the Eagles slipped past the Sweetwater Mustangs 'I3-0. The Mustangs lived up to traditional billing at Fair Park Stadium, giving up every inch of ground with a fight, but bowing to Abilene in a great defensive game. Abilene's winning streak was broken on Friday, October I. The mighty Breckenridge Br'onco's came roaring in and beat the Eagles 35-13 before a crowd of 'I0,000. The Buckies threw at Abilene an unbeatable offense. Colwell receives pass and advances toward the goal while Swaf- ford gets his man.

The victory was spelled out in two long passes by Hawkins, one 85 yard run by Millerman, and a beautifully precisioned line. Already people were heard saying, "We have a State Championship team." Millerman and his running mate help pick up a few yards in the Eagles-Odessa game. It was teamwork like this that sent the Eagles to District.

The Eagles' great offense and defense play really paid off. i .lim Briggs blasted 4 yards for the first touchdown, then Henry Colwell shot 3 yards around left end for another tally. The score was 1-0 at the half because of H. P. Hawkins' long 54 yard toss to Colwell n the second quarter. In the second half Hawkins hit Swafford for 32 ong yards, and Phil Bailey crunched through the Amarillo line for two ore tallies.

ABILENE 35 -- LUBBOCK 7 The Eagles, relying heavily on Jim Brigg's power running, and an airtight defense swept past the Lubbock Westerners 35-7. So effective was the Eagle defense that Lubbock made only 3 first downs in the whole game. Briggs scored twice for Abilene, H. P. Hawkins chalked his first TD up for the season, Jim Millerman tallied once, and Sophomore Glynn Gregory went over for one score. In the first period the Eagles tallied twice. ln the second quarter Lubbock chalked up its score, but Abilene also marked one up in this period. In the third quarter Hawkins couldn't find a receiver and raced 40 yards up the sidelines for a TD. The final score came as Briggs went 27 yards through the line. This sacked up the Eagles fifth straight dis- trict win. Jim Millerman breaks loose for a goin in yardage in the Abilene- Lubbock game.

ABILENE 28 - MIDLAND 14 The Eagles invaded Midland and dumped the Bulldogs 28-14, as Jim Briggs tore up the purple line for 149 yards and outgained the great Wahoo McDaniels by 20 yards, the roughest game of the season. Briggs scored the first touchdown only 3 minutes deep in the game, and David Bourland intercepted a pass and ran the 73 yards for another T.D. Abilene made it 21-0 when Jim Millerman plunged around the right end for touchdown number 3. The final Warbird score was made in the last quarter when H. P. Hawkins went over on a keeper from the one yard line. Winning this game gave the Eagles the District Championship. Here is an example of the power running of fullback Briggs, against Midland.

ABILENE 27 - SAN ANGELO 0 The Warbirds brought the 1954 district grid campaign to a scream- ing halt as they waltzed past the San Angelo Bobcats 27-0. Jim Millerman and Henry Colwell took the crossing honors for A. H. S. while H. P. Hawkins came through with three extra points. The score was 20-0 at the end of the first quarter. The last three quarters were give and take, but the Abilene line and backfield worked to- gether with the tooled precision. Thus the Warbirds ended San Angelo's football season and readied for a tough fight for State Championship.

ABILENE 61 - EL PASO 0 IAUSTINJ The Eagles roared on down the path to State Championship and completely overpowered Aus- tin of El Paso 61-0 here in the Eagle Stadium for the Bi-District win. Jim Millerman showed his heels to El Paso defenders for three touchdowns and Henry Colwell scored twice and gained 148 yards on only nine carries. Glenn Gregory scored two touchdowns and kicked three extra points. Freddie Green was hit by David Bourland for another tally and fullback .lack Self raced 31 yards for another. Quarterback H. P. Hawkins booted 4 extra points. The Eagles scored almost at will. ABILENE 46 - FORT WORTH IPOLYTECHNICI 0 The Eagles overwhelmed the Parrots of Polytechnic, Fort Worth, 46-0. For the first time in 23 years, Abilene became a state finalist as a fighting band of Warbirds used sheer force and some very brillant defensive play to trounce their opponents before 12,000 fans. The Eagles thwarted every move the Parrots tried to make. Poly's heralded spread formation passing attack was completely bottled up. This win set up the Eagles for the Championship game with Houston. Glynn Gregory breaks through the Poly line and makes another tally. Millerman, Thomas and other Eagles clear the way for Colwell in the Abilene-Houston Championship game. ABILENE 14 - HOUSTON lAUSTlNl 7 The gallant Warbirds captured the 1-AAAA State Championship by defeating Stephen F. Austin of Houston 14-7. Abilene's first touchdown came in the first quarter when Millerman made a plunge around right end. Houston's lone touchdown came in the second quarter, and the game was tied at the half. A beautiful pass by H. P. Hawkins, a wonderful fingertip catch by Twyman Ash, and some of the most powerful line and backfield teamwork brought the championship touchdown in the last 56 sec- onds of the game. Today A. H. S. is the proud owner of a silver football. The coaches have not relaxed even though the The Tri-Captains present the championship I winning touchdown has been made. 218 fg Mr. Webb for A, H, 5, "B" TEAM ROW 1: Jimmy Zacharias, Jerry Carter, Steve McEntire, Ben Martinez, Herschel McCoy, H.

They were pictured in your annual last year as AHS seniors. After graduation day they found a friendly welcome-and lots of things to do-at McMurry College. They found students and teachers with Christian backgrounds and purposes. They discovered numerous club and social activities at Mc- Murry, and a well-rounded pro- gram of varsity athletics, intra- mural sports and physical edu- cation. Best yet, they fou nd they could get a good college educa- tion right here in Abilene, and enioy all the fun of college and the comforts of home at the same time. 256 is fa ,J V ' ' Zi' p.
