No great work
was ever done in a hurry. Milton did not write
'Paradise Lost" in a sitting, nor did Shakespeare compose
Hamlet" in a day. To do anything great requires patience,
perseverence, and enthusiasm. The faculty and leaders
of our community had an abundance of all three.
Soon their enthusiasm spilled over into the student
body. Plans were drawn, and our new Abilene
High School had its beginning.

Reality follows visiong vision comes from dreams. A
constant dreamer for a greater Abilene Public School
System is Superintendent A. E. Wells. Ready to share

and Assistant Principal Alex Edwards. By looking
around us, we can see that reality does follow vision.

nee became Flashlight Queen. This was followed by Senior Radio Day, Senior Follies, the Senior ploy and

R CLASS QUEEN
"Will the meeting please come to order?" As this familiar plea resounded through the cafeteria
the Junior Class of 1956 began an active year. With only two years remaining, these seniors-to-be began
working diligently to make the class a memorable one.
First on the agenda was the election of officers and the class queen. In assembly she was presented
as the queen at the end of the rainbow. In a later assembly the class was in charge of the skit for the
pep rally before the Sunset of Dallas game. The next major event was the Junior assembly program
given to raise money for the Junior-Senior Banquet. The Junior Class also hosted the Senior's commencement
exercises. This completed the activity of the Junior Class.
Helping the Junior Class in its activities were Miss Loving, chairman, Miss Deavers, Mr. Dunn, Miss
Hardy, Mr. Gleaton, Mr. Hiner, Mrs. Morrow, Mr. Lawson, Miss Reeves, Miss Turner, Miss Bailey, Mrs. Grubb,
Mr. Harlow, Mr. Robbins, Mr. Watkins, Mr. Sproull, Miss Griffin, Mr. Jeter, Mr

SOPHOMORE CLASS QUEEN
The Sophomore Class of 1955-56 entered the halls of A.H.S. looking forward to being the first
class to graduate having spent all of their high school days in the new Abilene High School.
The Class's activities began early in September with the election of officers and a nominee for Flash-
light Queen. This event was followed by the presentation of the sophomore queen.
The next activity on our calendar of events was the talent show which carried the theme of "School
Days." In this presentation the sophomores let the upperclassmen know that there was talent in their class.
The Sophomores also presented the skit for the Amarillo pep rally.
Ready to guide the Sophomore activities were Mr. Harwell, chairman, Mr. Bullington, Miss Darter,
Mr. Morris, Mr. Wellborne, Miss Hayes, Mrs. Parker, Miss Self, Miss Butler, Mr. Bankston, Miss Cannon, Miss
Conpere, Mr. Coalson, Miss Duncan, Mr. Spence, Mr. Tapscott, Mr. Turbush, Mr. Walk
er, and Mr. Echols.

first half. The Eagles added two more scores in the

Henry Colwell counted for four touchdowns to lead
n attack that lacked the sput and sputter lightning that

and some fine defensive work. He gained l06 yards
rushing against the famed Bulldog line.
David Bourland scored once from the four as some
of the finest faking of the year had everyone fooled.

Abilene 33-Dallas Sunset 6
The Eagles rambled through the famed Sunset defense for 33 Points before the opposition could score
and moved on into the state finals with a 33-6 win.
James Welsh, playing as he did in the Odessa tilt, scored four touchdowns and gained a big share of
Abilene's yardage. The same pass combination that worked against San Angelo clicked between Glynn Greg-
ory and David Bourland for the other score.
Defensive work by Freddie Green, Stuart Peake, Rufus King, Sam Caudle and Henry Colwell high-
lighted the program.
Abileiie as-Tyler 13
The Eagles battled their way into the state championship for the second consecutive time by rolling over
the Tyler Lions, 33-13 with a show of offensive and defensive might that left Tyler players and fans open-
Following the near perfect signal calling of David Bourland, the Warbirds made 351 yards on the ground
and held Tyler to 58 yards on the ground and 80 in the air. Glynn Gregory, clinching his all state honors,
led the Eagles' offense with 171 yards on 16 carries for two touchdowns. James Welch also counted two touch-
downs, followed by Henry Colwell with one. Every member suited out played, even two with orders not to
make contact because of injuries.
The game was a perfect climax to a perfect season and will bring the 1956 Eagles into play with a 23
game winning streak to protect.

the squad one of the most formidable ever fielded by the Eagles. After watching Coach B. L. Black-

Eagle cindermen started their season with a decisive win in the Possum Kingdom relays, and show prom-
lse of adding more trophies in the circuit of important meets. Only six seniors are on the squad, forecasting a
track dynasty over another year. Although the team is not considered as strong as last year's, it is almost a cinch
to make the state meet again.
