ELMER NREDD DUxRE'rT
Elmer was one of the steadiest players on the team,
and always turned in a sterling game. Red is the type of
man who makes a good center, and he certainly did every-
thing that was expected of him, and then some. He has
a line spirit and will be a sure bid for All-City next
PETE LAYDEN "B. TY'
Pete Layden was shifted from end
to backfield late in the season, but
he quickly stamped himself as one
of the best backs in the city. His
superior punting and passing was
praised by everyone. He was selected
to play in the A11-Star game. This
was Layden's second and last year
to play for the Leopards.
W. A. NBUSSEYH STRICKLAND
W. A. will always be remembered
for his dependability and his great
fighting spirit. Bussey has lettered
at a guard position for the last two
years and at tackle this year. He
was one of the best tackles in the
city this year, and his position will be
hard to fill next year.
GLENN QQSLEW-FOOTJ, SCHERER
Glenn ended his athletic career at Adamson this year.
He was a stellar linesman and held the position of center,
one of the most important positions on the team, in, a
manner that would be creditable to anyone. He was
an excellent blocker and had the traditional "Oak Cliff"
james, the largest man on the
team, used his weight to a good ad-
vantage in stopping the opponents'
backs. Moose-Nose, playing his third
year, showed vast improvement over
last year, and always had that fight-
ing determination to Win. His tackle
position will be hard to fill, and he
will be missed a lot by the rest of

Sustaining its reputation for originality and
Captain Howard Nelson was the stellar right
end of the Leopards. It was a very pleasing
sight when Howard leaped high into the air
and snagged a pass. He could block and tackle
as the best of them. By virtue of this, Howard
was reelected on the mythical A11-city team.
This was his last year to play.

leadership in school activities, Adamson High
created this year a new position of honor, that
of Football Queen. Gladys Johnson was the
proud recipient of this regal distinction this year.

ceremony during the half at the Adamson vs.
North Dallas Game on- the night of Friday,
October 9, in the Cotton Bowl at the Centen-
nial Grounds. She was attended by four
Maids of Honor, Jeanne Cates, Mildred Single-
ton. Elizabeth Cameron, and Mary Ellen Murrell.

P. H. UPETEU DUNHAM
P. H. "Pete" Dunham was Adam-
son's left guard. He weighed around
160 pounds and was 5 ft. 8. in.
tall. He was very fast in pulling
out of the line and was a deadly
tackle. He was unexcelled in block-
ing the fullback. Pete was selected
to play in the All-Star game. This
was Dunham's second and last year
Ray will be remembered not only
by his team mates, but by most
of the boys he has played against,
because of his plendid blocking and
tackling. Ray played halfback in
great style, and he was one of the
hardest tackling players in the city.
Ray will be back next year and
should be a sure bid for All-City
james did remarkably well as end,
in spite of his lack of experience.
Besides snagging passes, he was a
fine blocker and hard tackler. This
is james' first year, and he will
captain the Leopards next year along
with Patterson and Gandy.
NORMAN itDUKE,, WATSON
Norman was a one year man, a
serious worker and very dependable.
Duke was a good player on the
offense as well as on the defense.
He graduates this year.
BOYCE "HUsKY,' NALL
Big Boyce Nall substituted at
guard position. Boyce is low in
stature and weighs 180 lbs. He
earned his letter by performance in
the Sunset game. He blocked two
punts which led to touchdowns for
the Leopards. By virtue of this,
Bill Bushman selected him on his
All-Star tearn. This was Nall's first
and last year for the Leopards.
RANDALL USTARD RYAN
Randall, commonly called "Star",
was the speediest back on the squad
this year because of his track ex-
perience. Randall was handicapped
because of his light weight, but
nevertheless he made numerous long
spectacular runs. His services will
be greatly missed next year.
