'r M1324 5 s 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 year. ' 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. - spirit. 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 'KMOOSE-NOSE,, C1-nusTE 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 the boys. p ,, " " Q Page One Hundred Twenty-Two

FOOTBALL QUEEN Sustaining its reputation for originality and HOWARD NELSON 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. ,sul V. 5 al' , Qif ff fi 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. She was crowned in a beautiful and impressive 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. Page Om? H1111r1rn1T1ucnly-Om'

Q I 3' ,4 if .Q 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 to play. RAY NIBLO 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 honors. JAMES OAKES 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.
