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.
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

The doorways of Abilene High School have opened to many champions in its history, and the precedent
has not been changed in its last year as "Dear Old Abilene High." Recognition was brought to A H S last

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.
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."
A. E. WELLS
Mr. Esco Webb, Principal

a genuine pleasure to work with such a fine
student body this year.
J. H. NAIL
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

A flashlight throws a beam to guide you

The Senior Class, faced with numerous studies and many activities,
came to make history as the last graduating class from Old A. 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

t Wesident Class Queen
The Junior Class has been kept quite busy throughout this year with
its many activities. The year began with the election of officers and the
class queen. The queen was presented in assembly in a very colorful
Mardi Gras scene. In a later assembly the class was in charge of the skit
for the rally before the Polytech game. The next major event was the
Junior assembly program given to raise money for the Junior-Senior Ban-
quet. This banquet completed the activity of the Junior Class.
Helping the Junior Class in its activities through the year were Mr.
Lawson, chairman, Mrs. Haney, Miss Deavers, Mr. Dunn, Miss Hardy, Mr.
Harwell, Mr. Hiner, Mrs. Morrow, Miss Bailey, Miss Garvin, Mrs. Grubb, Mr.
Harlow, Mrs. James, Mr. King, Miss Loving, Mr. Moore, Mr. Owen, Mr. Rob-
bins, and Mr. Watkins.

As the season opened, the screaming Warbirds buried the Highland Park
Scotties 40-0. 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
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.

ABILENE 21 -ODESSA 7
.lust as in the first district game played against Borger, the Abilene Eagles
played a never-say-die brand of football, turned tables on an aerial minded
Odessa team and whipped one of the toughest clubs in 1-AAAA District on
passes. 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 invaded Amarillo October 30, 1954 and literally tore
hem limb from limb. This was the worst defeat ever suffered by the
Amarillo Sandies at home.
p Nine Abilene backs got in on the yardage manufacturing. 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. Halfback Jim Carpenter raced 9 yards around end for the
Final marker, making the score 47-0.

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.

The Warbirds brought the 1954 district grid campaign to a scream-

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 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.

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.

Ash, David Bourland, and Glynn Gregory were a little late getting to practice
at the first of the season because of the prolonged football season. The Cagers
won 'll out of 25 games for a neat average of 4471. Although this is a good

We'd like to have YOU at MCMURRY
The members of the 1954-55
Freshman Class at McMurry Col-
lege pictured above should feel
right at home between the cov-

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-
Best yet, they fou nd they
could get a good college educa-
tion right here in Abilene, and

the comforts of home at the
