The organization most representative of the student body of Alamo Heights is the Student Council, whose purpose
is to give the students an active, cooperative part in the administration of the school.
President of this organization is Carrel Dakin, a member of the Senior Class. The vice-president is Flo Brown, and
the secretary and treasurer is Nancy Blackburn.
The Student Council has been an aid to the students and the faculty in many of the school activities. Every advisory
elects one representative to this organization, which meets every two weeks.
Early in the year the Council instituted and collected "advisory dues" of five cents per term. This money went into
the general fund and was used to send flowers to students who were sick and to families in which there was death. This
relieved the individual advisories, which had made these floral offerings in the past.
The sale of tickets to both football games and dramatic performances in the auditorium was sponsored by the
Council, which is largely responsible for the large crowds at the games and the performances.
At Christmas the Council supervised the collection and distribution of food and clothing for needy families. This
Christmas, gifts reached 12 homes.
The annual dance given by the Council between terms in january this year took the form of a "Forty-niner Ball."
Appropriate prizes were given for the best costumes, and the dance was one of the most successful ever given by the
Candidates for election to the "Hall of Fame" are chosen by this organization, which also supervises the sale of poll
taxes and the election of the favorites. This year's Council increased the poll tax from five to ten cents, and used the
money to pay for the art work in the school annual.
Much of the success of the "Open House" held every year at the school is due to the work and cooperation of this

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The National Honor Society is an organization composed of numerous chapters in high schools all over the United
States, membership in which is perhaps the highest honor that can be given a student in high school. Members of the
society, who are elected by the faculty of the high school, must have high qualifications in SCHOLARSHIP, LEADER-
SHIP, SERVICE, and CHARACTER.
The National Honor Society is the high school division of the well known "PHI BETA KAPPAQ' a fraternity of
college rank, which stands for practically the same qualifications as the high school organization.
Only iuniors and seniors with an average of at least "B" in their studies are eligible for membership, and not more
than ten per cent of the Senior Class and Five per cent of the junior Class can be elected to this society. Two places are
held open until the night of graduation when two more seniors are honored by election to the organization,
Among those elected this year are Annie Claire Randall and Sarah Hoey, who have this year made one of the best
debate teams in the history of Alamo Heights, a school that has received wide recognition for its debate teams. Other
new members who have taken a prominent part in the Interscholastic League activities, both literary and athletic are
Margaret Anne Mueller, Harvey Smith, Frank Mooney, james Flannery and Martha jean McNair. Ruth Thorman, Evelyn
Alling and Evelyn Wyrick will long be remembered for their high scholastic standing as well as for service to the school,
while the dramatic ability of Isabel Somerville and Barbara Archer will not be forgotten. The other three new members,
Harry Ankerson, Helen Graham and Willialm Busbee, were selected because in addition to the other qualifications they
have shown exceptional leadership and have been representatives of the junior Class. The old members of the organiza-
tion who were elected last year as iuniors are jack Howard, who is well known in both the field of journalism and
extemporaneous speaking, Larue Barrier and Peggy Ramsdell, who have high scholastic qualiticationsg Cartel Dakin,
debater and Student Council member, and Mary Ann Rigsby, also a debate-r.
The Alamo Heights chapter, number 822, was organized in 1929, Since that time there have been 98 members of
the Alamo Heights chapter. Mrs. Pickens lpis spyonsored the club until this year when Mrs. Neuhauser became sponsor,
The activities of the club include a formal and an informal initiation. It is customary in Alamo Heights to hold
the formal initiation before the student body in an assembly program at which time the new members are presented
with diplomas, the club pins, and ribbons of the club colors. The gold pins which are worn by members of all chapters of
the organization are given each year by the Alamo Heights Parent Teacher's Association.

One of the most active organizations in Alamo Heights and one which has often brought honors to the school for
many years has been the debating club. Under the able direction ot' Mr. Todd, members of this club have learned by
experience the art of debating, a subject which is not offered as a regular part of the school curriculum.
Until a squad of eight, four boys and four girls, is chosen, membership in'the club is open to any student in the
school, and though the primary purpose of the organization is to prepare one boys' team and one girls' team for the
debates in the Interscholastic League Meet, much practice in debating is given to other members of thc squad and club.
With six members of last years club, Annie Claire Randall, Carre-l Dakin, Vail Koeclier, Robert Pincus, Sarah Hoey,
and Mary Ann Rigsby, returning this year and with the discovery of rhetorical ability in Bob Lain and Margaret Anne
Mueller, this year's squad, composed of the eight mentioned above, has had a very profitable year debating the question,
Resolved: That the Federal Government Should Control the Production of Cotton.
The squad first went to the University of Texas to interview Dr. A. B. Cox, an authority on the cotton question,
and to debate the University of Texas teams in some practice debates. Then they spent a day in Victoria in argumenta-
tion with the Victoria High School. One of the most important occurrences in the debating season is the tournament
given by the squad. This year they were hosts to 22 of the best debating teams in the state, the largest tourney ever given
in Alamo Heights School. judging on a percentage basis, Alamo Heights School won second place in the contest. Neither
of the Alamo Heights girls' teams lost a debate, an unusual record. In the Southwest Texas Debate Tournament held
in john Reagan High School in Houston, one of the largest annual tournaments in the state, the Alamo Heights teams
again talked their way to second place.
In the debates of the County Interscholastic League Meet, Annie Claire Randall and Sarah Hoey defeated the Edison
High School girls' team and became county champions. The boys, Robert Pincus, Cartel Dakin, and Vail Koecher, also
defeated the Edison team but lost in a close debate to Edgewood, becoming winners of second place in the county.
For the past year Annie Claire Randall has been president of the debating society, Mary Ann Rigsby has been vice-
president, and Carrel Dakin, treasurer. Mr. Todd feels that this year he has trained two of the best debating teams in
the history of the school, but the members of those teams attribute their good luck to their mascot, young Alan Rhea

Nlifhat the Hi-Y is for the boys, the Girl Reserves is for the girls-a sort of school social club strictly for girls and
based upon a Christian background, being sponsored nationally by the Young Wtrmen's Christian Association. ln Alamo
Heights its activities and benefits have been very numerous the past year.
To start out the club gave il "Friday l?atl1" dance in the junior School auditorium December 13, 1935. Al Russell
played for the dance, and some of the school talent put on a floor show. just a week later the Alamo Heights Girl Re-
serves were hostesses at the Y. W. C. A. monthly supper. Georgia Fitzgerald, Larue Barrier, Flo Brown, and jean
Tulloss, members of the club, furnished the entertainment. Later in the month, a few days before the Christmas holidays,
the Girl Reserves and the Hi-Y co-operated in sponsoring the Christmas play, "The Empty Room."
The club did its good turn Christmas by handling the Christmas Cheer work, the job of preparing baskets of food
and clothing to give to the poor and needy of Alamo Heights and San Antonio. lt succeeded in making happier
Christmases for about half a dozen families.
Running true to form, the Girl Reserves sponsored their two annual sales, the candy sale and the doughnut sale.
The latter, by far the more remembered of the two, resulted in the sale of 250 dozen doughnuts, approximately.
On April 3 the Girl Reserves gave a picnic at Nancy Coppock's home on the Nacogdoches Road. This picnic was
for only Girl Reserves and their dates, and it was quite a success, especially as regards foodstuffs.
The officers of the Alamo Heights Girl Reserves are as follows: President, Tess Charlton, Vice-President, Helen
Grahamg Secretary, Tita Loughborough, Treasurer, Nancy Coppockg Chairman of membership committee, Marian
Herpel, Chairman of program committee, Flo Brown, Chairman of service committee, Peggy Ramsdellg Sergeant at
arms, Peggy Ramsdell.
Sponsor of the club is Miss Lighthouse.

The Hi-Y Club is an organization of high school boys under the sponsorship of the Y. M. C. A. The purpose of
the club is admirably expressed in the following statement, which is the members' pledge: "The purpose of the Hi-Y
Club is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian living." Al-
though the club has made no formal drive this year to improve conditions that might exist in the school and community,
this organization because of its size and purpose has influenced many indirectly and has thus actively carried out its
Under the leadership of Mr. Todd, sponsor of the organization, the Hi-Y Club has enioyed a series of programs
designed to cover many phases of life, such as character building and vocational guidance. The meetings held every
Tuesday night at the Y. M. C. A. are often followed by swims and games in the gymnasium. Another feature of the
programs is a "Best Girl Night" at which all the boys bring dates and a show is enjoyed after the meeting.
At Christmas the club with the Girl Reserves sponsored a Christmas play which was given twice, once at a rally of
the Hi-Y clubs from all over the city and again at an assembly. Several boxes of food also went to needy families from
the Hi-Y at this time of year.
The South Texas Older Boys' Conference was held in San Antonio, january 29, and Bill Cain, a member of the
Alamo Heights Hi-Y Club, chose the subject for the conference, "Living a Christian Life in an Unchristian Environ-
This year's work was ably directed by the officers of the Hi-Y Club who are: president, Carl Newton, Vice-president,

BAND AND ORCHESTRA
The band and orchestra represent two of the most efficient and necessary organizations in the entire school. Com-
posed of junior and Senior school students, the orchestra and band contain many proficient instrumentalists whose
services add much to every occasion at which they appear.
Under the leadership of Mr. Glen Wallace, who this fall began his second year of direction at Alamo Heights, the
orchestra has performed at most of the bi-monthly assemblies and on one occasion undertook an entire assembly program,
which proved a great success. The program demonstrated not only the capability of Mr. Wallace as a conductor but
also displayed the progress that has been made by the orchestra since the beginning of the school year. The versatility
of the orchestra extends even to the radio. lt rendered several selections over station WOAI in connection with an
Alamo Heights program.
This year marks the First that the orchestra members have participated in the great Southwest Music Festival held
this year at Roswell, New Mexico. Eight members, Nanette Boerner, Mozelle Quillian, Margaret Anne Mueller, Ruth
Adele Thorman, john Sallee, Dale Hall, Bobby Winn, Vernon Shaw and Mr. Wallace attended and took part in the
combined symphony orchestra composed of high school students throughout the Southwest.
Ruth Hanabury was selected drum-major of the band, the first girl drum-major in San Antonio. Under her direction
the band played and drilled at all home football games and marched in parades during the' Fiesta Week.
The band and orchestra contain 40 members, an increase of several over last year. This indicates an increase of
interest in music by students, one of the main purposes in organizing the orchestra.

The purpose of an organized pep squad Qsuch as the one pictured abovej is to form a nucleus of high school
students for the purpose of lending moral support to the football teams. There can be found no greater manifestation
of that "twelfth man" spirit than that in our pep squad. The cooperation of these girls in rooting for our teams is a
worthy effort on their part to do the school a service and deserves praise.
The pep squad practices each morning at eight o'clock during the football season so that it might perfect its
drills and forming of letters. Then at every home football game the pep squad has lent spirit and color to the occasion,
because, clad in blue and gold uniforms, the girls entertained the spectators between halves and thoroughly demon-
strated the carefulness with which they had been trained by Miss Boles, sponsor of the organization.
, During any season other than football one might think that the pep squad is an inactive organization, but on the
contrary they have organized themselves into a social club holding monthly meetings. Thus interest in the club is kept
up and a number of socials are enioyed hy the members.
Fiesta Week finds the pep squad again representing Alamo Heights when they march in the Battle of Flowers parade.
Also, as an extra-curricula activity, the membership in the pep squad gains for the members 10 points towardsthe required
extra activities credit.
Much of the good work accomplished by the pep squad may be attributed to the untiring effort of the officers of
the club who are: President, Ruth Hallg vice-president, Mary Skeltong secretary, Alice Ruth Yatesg and treasurer, Harriet

This year the staff of the OLMOS, jointly sponsored by Mrs. Pickens, Miss Clark, and Mr. Key, has ventured into
regions not explored by Alamo Heights yearbook staffs for about six years. lt has doubled the size of the annual over
what it was last year, and, more important, has put on the book a leather cover.
The designing of the book was based upon the Texas Centennial scheme. Title pages of the various sections are
decorated with the six flags under which Texas lived, one flag being used on each title page, accompanied by a scene
depicting some scene or event connected with the reign of that country. The cover was also selected from many other
designs because it expressed the centennial idea better. lt might be well to mention that the art work for the annual was
done by Annie Claire Randall.
In providing space for individual pictures of the juniors and sophomores as well as the seniors, the staff has tried to
settle a complaint of several years duration. And in the pages of snap shots the attempt was made to provide a glimpse
of the more informal side of school life, pictures in which the subjects were not required to wear "coats, ties, and acces-
sories," and were not ordered to "smile now!"
Editor of the annual was Cartel Dakin, also president of the Student Council. Using the experience he gained as
associate editor of the paper, Carrel did much to prepare the attractive layout of the OLMOS. Under Carrel were several
department heads. lt might be well to give credit to these students who have given their time io help toward the larger
1936 yearbook. They are as follows: Head of the art department, Annie Claire Randall, head of the editorial depart-
ment, jack Howard, head of the advertising department, Ralph Bush and William Busbee, Snapshot editors, Bill Silvey,
Under activities the annual has attempted to present a comprehensive survey of the school year, not by a chrono-
logically arranged article, but by writing up articles under each of the group pictures of the various clubs and sports and
But by far the greatest factor in the success of this year's annual is the help and assistance lent by our principal, Mr.
R. B. Reed, who has given the staff the permission to go ahead and print a larger annual than the school has had for
sqyeral years-Mr. Reed, to whom this, the 1956 OLMOS of Alamo Heights High School is gratefully dedicated.

Serving as a practice school for students of the journalism class and as a news medium for the students and faculty
of Alamo Heights, the HOOF PRINT has attempted to keep before the school all campus activities and in addition
make new improvements upon the appearance and content of the paper.
The first improvement came in the sixth issue, which enlarged the size of the pages and added one column to each,
making a total of five columns on a page. The result of this was that the amount of news the paper could publish was
increased 2554, thus making possible a more complete coverage and presentation of the facts concerning school happen-
ings. Also. this made possible the publishing of more ads without reducing the amount of news space in the columns.
Hand in hand with the change went the substitution of newsprint grade paper for the glossy finish stock previously used.
This afforded more the appearance of a professional newspaper.
The HOOF PRINT has placed emphasis upon presenting the news in feature style more than in the straight pub-
lishing of facts, which, in the case of a semi-mohthly paper, would usually be stale by the time the paper had come out.
The majority of stories published in the paper were written by the members of the journalism class, taught by Mr.
Key, teacher of English. Editor of the paper was Jack Howard, assisted by associate editors Carrel Dakin and Bart
Lack of sufficient finances prevented the HOOF PRINT from printing more than three or four half-tone cuts
during the year, and so to break the monotony of the pages, the staff turned to linoleum cuts. This otherwise pitiful
situation turned out for the best, as it gave Annie Claire Randall, john Menger, and one or two others a beneficial outlet
for their artistic talents. Annie Claire and john each contributed several humorous cartoons for the paper.
Due recognition should by all means be given the advertising department, sponsored by Mrs. Pickens, and headed
by Billy Fitch during the first term, and later, in the second term, Mary jane McDavitt. A school paper in a public
school is an absolute impossibility without advertisements, and the advertising department of the HOOF PRINT has
certainly done its part to make the paper this year the success it was.
The activity of the paper has not been confined to Alamo Heights, though. Exchange editor Nancy Coppock has
mailed copies to many schools in the United States that print papers. Also, the HOOF PRINT has entered and sent
delegates to two high school journalistic conferences, the Texas High School Press Association conference at Belton the
second week of December and the Interscholastic League Press Association meet in Austin in the Spring.

The 1935 Mule Football team, captained by Bill Lockett, although losers in seven games out of nine played, left
all opponents with the realization that they had played a real team, a team with a kick to it. Opening the season, the
Mules journeyed to Laredo to meet the Laredo Tigers. After letting the Mules score nine points early in the game,
the Tigers tightened up and uncorked an offense too strong to be stopped. The final score was 14-9, Laredo.
Then to Brady-this time the superior weight of the Bears could not be denied and Heights returned, losers by a
Opening their home schedule, Heights trounced their guests, the Luling Eagles, 8-6 in an exciting and interesting
tilt after allowing the Eagles to run up a six point lead in the first period. It was a great game, witnessed by an overflow
Next opponents were the Tech Buffs, ancient rivals of the Mules. Played at Tech Field, the game turned out 15-Q
with Tech on the long end of the score, although the way was made tough by the scrappy Heights team. "'
Beginning their district play, the Mules galloped to Floresville and returned losers to the Tigers by a 22-0 score.
In their second home game of the season Heights took on and defeated the invading New Braunfels Unicorns
on a muddy field 13-O.
Against their traditional rivals, the Edison Bears, the Mules failed to score once from the two yard line and again
from the four yard line and allowed the Bears to walk off the field weary and battered, but winners, 19-0.
In the hnal game of the season Heights made an exceptional showing against the champion Lanier team, doped to
win by twenty points. Lanier won by only a 9-O score, all points being made in the final quartet.
The team was coached by Irving Martin and Carl Meriger.

After breezing through the first half of their schedule undefeated, the Mules met defeat in two of the second half
tilts, one to the Harlandale team whom they had bested earlier in the season and in doing so ended the Indians 42
game Bexar League winning streak, and the other to the South San Antonio Bobcats whom they had also defeated earlier
in the season.
The team finished second in the Bexar county league.

Although the track team was forced to double up in some events, due to the smallness of the team, it has come
through the season in a remarkable manner. Starting immediately after the close of the basketball season, the team,
under the coaching and guidance of Coach Martin, practiced every single afternoon.
Heights entered in three competitive meets. The first was one in which Tech, Sidney Lanier, Harlandale, and
Heights were pitted against each other. In this meet against all these Class A schools, Heights placed first. In the
second competitive meet, the Bexar County Interscholastic Athletic Meet at Edison High School on April 4, Heights
placed second, competing against Edison, Harlandale, and South San Antonio high schools.
Places won in the county meet are as follows: 100-yard dash-Briggs 2nd, Tucker 3rd, 220-yard dash-Briggs 2nd,
Tucker 3rd, 440-yard dash-Wieters Zndg 880-yard dash-Eddins 2nd, Gonzales 4th, Mile Run-Winkler, Hannabury

Richardson 4th, 120-yard high hurdles-Richardson 4th, High jump-Richardson 4th, Hodges 4th, Randolph 4th,
Winning these places entitled Heights to enter contestants in her third competitive meet, the District 22 athletic
meet at jefferson High School April 18. No places were won at this meet, but the following tracksters were entered:
Briggs, Wieters, Herrle, Richardson, Smith. and Eddins.
Nevertheless, the team enjoyed a very successful season, considering its size. Three members of the team lettered:
George Briggs, Harvey Smith, and Jesse Richardson. Coach Martin was assisted in his coaching position by Carl Menger.

The girls' tennis team was conducted under the sponsorship of Miss Boles and Mrs. Posey. The members include
jewel Walker, jean Gaines, Betty Kuntz, and Dolly Kuntz.
Practice marches were played with teams from Tech, Harlandale, Edgewood, Edison, Austin, Seguin, and Somerset
After this regular schedule came the county meet, which was played at the same time as the boys' meet at jefferson
High School. The singles proved to be Heights' trump card, with jewel Walker winning the meet. It was played in
the form of a round robin against Edgewood, Harlandale, Edison, and Somerset high schools. The doubles team of
Betty and Dolly Kuntz finished in a three way tie for second place.
The boys' tennis team is sponsored by Mr. Key, a former member of the University of Texas tennis team, who has
arranged the matches and instructed the team members for the last three years.
The members of the team, named according to their ranking are, Myles Smith, james Flannery, Harvey Smith,
Marshall Miller, jimmy Talbot, Gale Boxill, Conrad Dickerson, and joe Charles Chapman.
The members of the squad started practice in january. Myles's court was used much of the time for this purpose.
Matches were played with Austin, Seguin, Harlandale, Brackenridge, and jefferson high schools, and each ofthe gaines
proved profitable practice.
Mr. Key arranged for the first eight members of the squad to act as ball 'boys and linesmen for the Tilden Tennis
Tours that played in San Antonio at the Municipal Auditorium. This was of great interest to all of the tennis minded
and proved very instructive to the team.
In the latter part of March the first round of the county meet was played at jefferson against the Edison team.
Myles Smith won the singles match with a straight set victory over the Edison player. The doubles match was lost,
however, in a close three set match to the Edison team. The final round of the meet was played against Harlandale,
and Myles again won his match in straight sets, giving him the county championship and a right to play in the
district meet, the middle of April.
Ed Frazer, Gunter Duckworth, Billy Church, Harvey Smith, Tammy Main, Albert MtDavid, Mr. Cale
The golf team was organized under the leadership of Mr. Cate. For the first month of practice the team went out
in foursomes and played either the Brackenridge or Willow Springs layout. On these occasions the various members
played matches against each other for practice. The results of these rounds were also used to rank the members ac-
cording to their ability. ,
One practice match was arranged with jefferson High, which was played at the Bracltenridge Park course. How-
ever, on account of illness only two members of the team were ,able to play for Heights, and both of these matches were
lost to the more experienced jefferson players.
The Saturday morning practice rounds continued through March, and about the hrst of April a practice cage was
completed under the direction of Coach Menger. All iron and wood shots can be practiced in this cage, and it has
proved helpful to the team.
A class of instruction given by one of-the local professionals was arranged, and this was conducted at the practice
cage. Various members have taken individual instructions.
The official round robin tourney with the other high schools of the city is played in May each year. With the ex-
perience that the various activities of the team has given its members, Heights is expected to make a good showing
for itself at this meeting.
The membefs are as follows: Harvey Smith, Ed Frazer, Tommy Main, Bruce Brough, Gunter Duckworth, john
Krueger, Billy Church, and Albert McDavid.

Mr Satan March 5, 1960
ln this letter l am sending to you the credentials and earthly occupations of our latest shipload of unwantables.
This shipload, by far the worst we have sent to you in years, is composed enti-rely of the graduating class of 1936 at
Alamo Heights High School. .
Flo Brown and Ruth Thorman were torch singers with Harry Tappan and his Harlem Red Hots. I need not
remind you of the fame of William Lockett and LeRoy Mueller on the Chicago Bears football team, nor of the work
done by Dr. Lula Kate Hill. Her excellent bit of surgery performed when she cut open Buck Callahan's skull and
placed inside a perfectly functioning brain was acclaimed as the greatest surgical accomplishment in 1950.
Leslie Steubing was the champion bronco-buster of Pecos County. Annie Claire Randall, with her mechanic, Mary
Ann Miller, won the Indianapolis Memorial Day classic five times straight in Annie Claire's special Essex speedster.
Also in the racing field was Roy Sivley, champion motorcycle hill-climber of Arcadia Street.
Marian Herpel was the highest paid actress in movies for ten years, with Robert Greene as her leading man. Both
stars worked for McDavid-Main-McMurry studios. Tita Loughborough worked for the St. Louis Zoological Gardens,
feeding the giraffes. Merle Holder was manager of the San Antonio Missions, of which Sam White was the leading Slugger.
Grace Lewis managed the most famous beauty shop in New York. ln' charge of the steam bath section was
Waneta Beckham, the world's greatest reducing expert. Bob Kelly was a commercial artist who spent his life drawing
advertisements for the OLMOS and HOOF PRINT. Ralph Bush was head of the Bush Buick Taxi Co.
Scott Stubbs followed a career of janiting in the newly completed Smith Building, architected and owned by Harvey
P. Smith, famous building designer, who explored Aztec ruins in Mexico in his spare time with his brave and straight-
shooting wife, the former Olive Alexander. The other Smith, Myles, was American National Amateur Tennis champion.
Ruth Hall and Gwen Peatling were women's doubles tennis champions of the world.
Carrel Dakin, of all people, was the successor to Father Coughlin. In charge of Father Dakin's correspondence
was Mary Ann Rigsby, his ever-faithful and slaving secretary. Tess Charlton was president of Charlton Publications,
lnc. On Pres. Charlton's editorial staff were jack Howard,Nancy Coppock, Billy Fitch, who were known as the three
highest paid editors in the world.
A. j. Lindsay was known as the Czar of the Numbers Racket. Edith Adams and juana Leigh Ericson were owners
of the largest brewery in America. Stanley Karger was promotor of Alamo Downs for nfteen years, a time of great
prosperity for the track. Also in the horse racing business was john Holmgreen, the world's greatest jockey.
jessie Pierce was leader of the hottest girl band in America, of which Larue Barrier was saxophonist. Press a ent
for Miss Pierce was busybody Billy Harmer, who was always five jumps ahead of everyone else when it came to thinfing
up sensational means of advertising. Eugene Bogle and Kaleta Polka.were featured soloists on the program of the
Musical Millers of Hearts Delight Flour, over WOAI. Tom Reid and john Sallee were first trumpetists with the San
Sally Swift and Helen Kelly managed the most exclusive store for women's footwear in New York. Garland jones
was buyer for the firm of Kelly-Swift and frequently produced startling designs for shoes. Myrtle McLendon established
herself in the business of working out original and novel ideas for parties and other entertainments. She was patronized
chiefly by the "400" of Seguin, of which Eunice Mae Harvin was leader.
Willella Buchner was a novelist and winner of the Pulitzer Prize Award of 1945 for her novel published by the
johnson House, publishing concern of which Lucie johnson was head. Leaders in the 1970 movement of the VUomen's
Christian Temperance Movement were Catherine Eisenmenger, jean lrwin, Kathleen Schertz, and Ethel Huffaker, who,
though old and feeble, were instrumental in bringing about the second passage of a prohibition bill in the history of
the States. ilncidentally, among leaders for the opposite side were Peggy Ramsdell, Spanish professor at Texas U., and
Dorothy Stanfield, first woman Representative to Congress from Texas.,
Mozelle Quillian and Nancy Blackburn were the two greatest stage actresses in America for almost two decades.
Courtney Browne was press agent for Blackburn, while Mary jane McDavitt was fiery female publicity scrivener for La
Quillian. Specializer in the roles of grandmothers was lsabel Somerville, who was acclaimed as one of the outstanding
actresses in minor roles on the American stage. Evelyn Wyrick was the Clara Bow of the movies at the turn of the century.
Both Emil Weilbacher and Vail Koecher cleaned up over a million dollars on Wall Street and retired to Palm
Beach. Though Emil remained a bachelor through life, Vail was once snagged by Margaret McDowell, who amassed,
before she reached her reckoning, a total of 17 divorces. This was one more in number than that boasted by Clarita
Scott, platinum blonde fyes, she dyed itj blues singer over the radio.
Leading matrons of Palm Beach Society were Patricia Geisler and Kathryn Franks.
Oratorical-minded William Church was state's attorney for Texas in several famous criminal cases involvin such
hardened criminals as David Knowles and his gunmoll, Sarah Hoey. Frank Mooney had stepped into the shoes of Billy
Sunday as the most vociferous itinerant evangelist not in captivity. Margaret Ann Mueller was four times winner of the
international speed typing contest.
Major-General Edwin Aldridge was Secretary of War in the Cabinet under President of the United States, jesse
Richardson, who was re-elected for a third term- because of his famous saying, "What this country needs is a GOOD
5C aeroplane!" jack Rogers and Mary Rogers had united to form the famous Rogers Troupe of aerial acrobats, which
was the main drawing card of the Ringling Circus ,for over ten years. Manager of the Ringling Circus was multi-
millionaire jack Lucas, who had also purchased the gigantic Florida mansion of automobile magnate joe Miller.
Rosemary Chandler had inherited the proprietorship of a huge shipping concern from an unknown uncle. Know-
ing little about shipping, she employed Capt. David Durkop to run her business for her. Mary Nette Snider, Christine
Wade, Nancy McLernon, and Bernice Baccus were chorus girls in the musical comedy-revues presented by director
Gordon Williams. Vivian Fain thrice merited the honor of being the best-looking photographers model. She posed
chiefly for camera studies by commercial photographer Betty Wyatt.
And now, my dear Lucifer, l turn over to you this shipment of unwantables up here. Wishing to you more luck
than l had with them, l remain always
