lt has been a short year, but one packed with
things we should remember, things so vivid that we
smile at the idea of ever forgetting them. Nlost of us
have out grown memory booksg few of us are patient
enough to keep a diary. Hence the Olmos.
As we present the Qlmos to guard your mem
ories, we make the following modest request:
'Youli scarce expect a staff our sige
To make a book divinely wise,
So if we chance to fall below
La Retama or the Moizticello
Don't view us with a critical eye,
But pass our impe1'jQ:ctions by,
fl. H. H. S.
Alamo Heights forever
We will praise with heart and soul
Marching along together
With our colors Blue and Gold
Ever with loyal spirit
Striving for heights untold
May Pride and Honor and Glory be forever in her name
We'll back our school and we'll back our team
And follow them to fame-so-
Alamo Heights keep marching-
Proudly bearing the name we love.

The 1936 Heights Mules, district and bi-district champions, left no doubt in the minds of those fortunate
enough to see them in action as to their superiority over all previous teams since the entrance of Heights into
Class B football. Playing a ten game schedule, of which nine games were won and one lost, the Mules coasted
to a district title, a birdistrict title, and in the final game of the season for the regional crown were defeated
in a hard fought battle.
Opening the schedule, Heights journeyed to Georgetown on September 18, and thoroughly trounced the
Eagles 27-6, the second team and scrubs playing a large portion of the game.
Playing on the home gridiron, the Mules next took on and defeated with ease the invading Sinton Pirates
In one of the hardest fought games of the season the Mules galloped to New Braunfels and in a night
game were forced to call upon a last minute rally to score two touchdowns and pull the game out of the fire.
The final score was 12-6, the winning touchdown being made in the last 50 seconds of play.
Playing their fourth game of the season, Heights, in humbling the Hondo Owls on the home field 23-0,
became the only undefeated team in the city.

Hosts to the St. Anthony Yellowjackets on Howard Field, the Mules were pulled out of a hole late in the
final period when Betts intercepted a jacket pass deep in Heights territory and galloped 85 yards through the
entire St. Anthony team to a score, putting the game on ice 13-0.
For the first time in the history of the school Heights turned back the Edison Bears, the score being 14-0.
Played on a muddy Howard Field, the game was in Heights favor from start to finish, and opened play in
In a tilt in which their unbelievable form was at its best, the Mules took on and blasted into defeat the
highly touted Luling Eagles 35-O on Howard Field. The highlight of the day was Gonzales's fourth period
65 yard jaunt to a score on the return of a Luling punt.
In the last scheduled game of the season, the powerful Heights machine earned the right to play in a bi-
district game by riding into defeat the Lanier Voks 10-O, again on Howard Field. The tilt marked their eighth
consecutive victory and their first district championship.
Thoroughly outplaying the Carrizo Springs Wildcats, but lacking a much needed scoring punch, Heights,
playing on Eagle Field, rolled up a total of 20 first downs, held the much baffled Wildcats to but one, but
were forced to score within five minutes of the final gun to win 7-6. Following Carrizo's touchdown on the
second play of the game, made by a 64 yard run, Heights spent the remaining time driving deep into Wildcat
territory, only to be repulsed time after time. Finally, late in the final quarter, a 30 yard sprint by Betts and a
conversion gave the Mules a bi-district crown.
In the last game of the season on December 11, the highly elated Mules, followed by a large crowd of
enthusiastic fans, traveled to Yoakum to do battle with the Yoakum Bulldogs, Against a visibly stronger
eleven, Heights scored in the first quarter, only to be overtaken in the second and fourth periods and defeated
During the entire season the Mules scored 169 points while holding all opponents to 32. They were
captained by Abel "Frito" Gonzales and coached by Irvin Martin and Carl Menger.

The flashy scoring quintet had a most profitable and exciting year, finishing second to Harlandale in the
county. Getting off to a bad start by losing to South San Antonio by one point and to Harlandale by nine points,
the Mules went through the rest of their schedule to defeat the six remaining teams by wide margins. The
most exciting game of the season was against Harlandale. In this game, Heights out-scored, out-dribbled, and
out-passed the Indians to the tune of 55 to 18. Another game against South San Antonio gave the fans a thrill
when the Mules nosed the Southsiders by three points.
Abel Gonzales, a flashy guard, was high point man during the season with Billy Randolph running him a
close second. The rest of the team ran as follows: Sheridan, Downs, Winkler, Eddins, Hughes, and Johnston.
At the beginning of the season, the basketball team was composed of Downs and Randolph at forwards,
Sheridan and Gonzales at guards, and Alfred Hughes at center. Due to the ineligibility of Hughes and Downs
at mid-term, the team was rearranged with Bill Eddins taking over Sheridan's place at guard and Sheridan going
to forward. john Johnston filled in at center in Alfred Hughes' place. Randolph and Gonzales remained in
their same positions. Other members of the squad were joe Tom Winkler, William Rotzler, Billy Colbert, H.
O. Borgfeld, K. L. Berry, Henry judmaier, Lucian Taliaferro, Phil Beckley, and Leo Leggett.
A late start due to the unduly long and excellent football season handicapped the Heights' team severely,
for it is to be noted that every basketball player was also a football man. With this in mind, the team must be
handed a great deal of credit along with its coach who trained the boys in both sports, practicing long hours with
them to develop the fine team work that showed up in all their games to make possible the high rating they

L. Berry, Bill Eddins, Abel Gonzales, Albert Baughman, joe jefferds, Bruce Brough, Walter Symonds, and
Coach Irvin Martin took his boys to several track meets including Laredo, Brady, Fort Worth, jefferson,
At Laredo, K. L. Berry came in Hrst in the -H0 yard dash and 110 yard high hurdles, while Eddins con-
tributed with a thrilling second in the 880 yard dash.
In the meet at Brady, Berry took second in the 440 and broad jump with Eddins taking third in the 880
In the medley relay Berry, Eddins, Gonzales, and Baughman finished third.
At Fort Worth, where competition from all over the state was entered, Berry took second in the 110
yard high hurdles and third in the 440 yard dash to bring home honors for Alamo Heights and San Antonio.
Bill Eddins gave the boys a run for their money but failed to place in the 880 yard dash.
In the county meet at Edison, Alamo Heights finished second to Edison with a total of 36 points. K. I..
Berry tied with O'Connor of Edison with 15 points for high point man. Berry set a new record in the broad
jump with a leap of 20 feet, 11 inches. He finished second in the 440, discus, 110 high hurdles, and third in
the javelin throw. Eddins showed the boys how to run the 880 yard dash by coming in first. Gonzales came
out in fine style to take second in the 220, third in broad jump, and fourth in the discus. joe jelferds finished
third in the low hurdles. "Hank" Baughman took first in the high jump with Bruce Brough taking third in
the high jump also. Randolph and Brough tied for fourth in the pole vault. To finish the day Eddins, Baugh-
man, jefferds, and Gonzales took third in the mile relay.
Coach Martin must be given credit for the success of the track year for the way in which he coached the
boys and stayed with them through thick and thin. I

Winning two out of four matches, the 1957 Alamo Heights boys' netters succeeded in placing second in
the county, while Luke Hill smashed his way through to win the championship in boys' singles. The girls from
Heights, by playing consistently, managed to finish first and second in the doubles and singles events respec-
The season opened with a match with Brackenridgeg this first match was lost by a narrow margin. The
next match with Thomas jefferson had the same result, both the boys and the girls teams losing their matches.
In the match with Edison the boys team emerged victorious. As Edison did not enter any girls team this year,
the Alamo Heights girls team did not play in any matches against them.
The Somerset team was also defeated when they played here on the Heights courts. In a return match with
Brackenridge both teams were again defeated. Stockdale came to our courts and was defeated by the Heights
boys, but their girls team won the matches from the Alamo Heights girls. A return match at Somerset was lost
by the boys team, but the girls team was winning when the match was called, due to darkness. Their final
match against Edison resulted in a draw, each winning one doubles and singles match out of the four scheduled
At the end of the year, Luke Hill ranked first on the boys' singles team, with jimmy Talbot and Harry
Ankerson running a close second and third. In the doubles, Dick Callan and Bobby Hauser were first, Bill
Braid and Wayne Gotke, second, and Paul Mooney and Tom Cain, third on the squad.
The girls team had no exact rating, but it consisted of Margaret Snyder, Bette Kuntz, Sally Braid, and

Providing the students with an active part in the administrative functions of the school, the Student Coun-
cil is the most representative body of Alamo Heights. The group is composed of twelve members and a presi-
dent, the members being chosen from their respective advisories and the president from the student body at
Head of the 1936-1937 Student Council was Bill Busbee, who was assisted by joe jetferds, vice-presidentg
Dorothy Shaw, secretaryg treasurers, john Krueger and joe Davenportg reporter, Herbert Stucke: sergeant-at-
arms, Dolly Kuntzg and parliamentarian, Dorothy Dakin.
Early in the school year, the sponsorship of the council was changed from Mr. Reed to Miss Lighthouse.
because of the p1'incipal's lack of time to spend working with the group. Under Miss Lighthouse the organiza-
tion found it possible to hold weekly meetings and thereby undertake many more activities than t.hey had pre-
As in former years, the Student Council handled the sale of tickets to all football games and dramatic
performances of the school.
This organization supervised the collection of Christmas baskets and saw that the food and clothing were
distributed to needy families. Twelve baskets were filled.
A Christmas dance took the place of the customary mid-term Student Council dance this year.
Nominees for election to the Hall of liame were chosen by the council and the election of the favorites
were supervised by this group at a cost of five cents for each student voting. The money was used to pay for
some of the art work done in the "OImos."
Another object of the Student Council is the supervision of an "Open House," which is held annuallyg
much of the success and value of this entertainment is due to the cooperative work done by this organization.

NATIONAL HONOR SGCIETY
A chapter of the National Honor Society was organized at Alamo Heights High School in 1929. The object
of this society is to create a desire for high scholarship, to stimulate effort to render service, to promote the def
velopment of character, and to encourage worthy leadership.
Only juniors and seniors who have been in Alamo Heights for a year and who have an average of "B"
in their studies are eligible for membership. 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 b fl -ati t tl ' A

white, yellow, red, and purple. The gold pins which are worn by members of all chapters of the organization
are given each year by the Alamo Heights Parent Teachers' Association.

The Hi-Y Club is an organization of high school boys under the sponsorship of the Y. M. C. A. The pur-
pose of this club is admirably expressed in the following statement, which is the members' pledge: "The pur-
pose of the Hi-Y is to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of
Christian character." Although the club has made no formal drive to improve conditions that might exist in the
school and community, this organization, because of its size and purpose, has influenced many indirectly and
thus actively carried out its pledge.
Under the leadership of Mr. Todd, sponsor of the organization, the Hi-Y Club had enjoyed a series of
events to cover many phases of lifeg such as speeches made by local business men on 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" to which all the boys
bring dates, and a theater party is enjoyed after the meeting.
At Christmas time the club, with the Girl Reserves, sponsored a Christmas pageant which was given twice,
once at the Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church and another time for an assembly at school. Several boxes of
food went to needy families from the Hi-Y Club at this time of the year and also at Thanksgiving.
The South Texas Older Boys' Conference was held in Houston, Texas, February 12. Carl Newton was
president of the conference this year, and several members from Alamo Heights attended the conference.
This year's work was ably directed by the officers of the Hi4Y Club, who were as follows: President, Bill
Caing vice-president, john Kruegerg secretary, joe Street, treasurer, Bill Silveyg and reporter, Richard Battle.

'lille Girl Reserves are a part of an international organization-the Young Women's Christian Association.
This year the Alamo Heights' club successfully carried out its purpose to End and give the best.
To open the year's activities, the Girl Reserves gave a tea to welcome all girls that were new to this school,
or in the sophomore class, and the women of the faculty.
At Thanksgiving and Christmas, the club gave boxes of food and clothing to poor families,
As customary, the Girl Reserves and Hi-Y boys presented a Christmas program which was given at a school
assembly and again at the Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church.
On january li, 1957, the club gave a "Frontier Ball." Then a couple of weeks later they were hostesses
at one of the monthly suppers held at the Y. W. C. A. Doughnut day, an annual affair, was held February 26.
To close the year's varied activities, a tea was given for the senior girls and a picnic was held at Camp Bullis.
The splendid work done by the Girl Reserve officers and their able sponsor, Miss Lighthouse, kept matters
running smoothly and forty-tive members interested.
The officers for 1956-1937 were as follows: President, Helen Graham, vice-president, Maria Sykesg secre-
tary, jean Tullossg treasurer, Mary Scott Lockeg sergeant-at-arms, Betty Herpelg and program chairman,

BAND AND ORCHESTRA
The Alamo Heights School band and orchestra are composed of both junior and senior high students.
During the first semester of each term more concentration is placed upon the band than the orchestra because
of its participation in football activities which include sponsoring the games. In the second semester, orchestra
work is emphasized and it is customary to attend some music festival or conference. This year, however, they
did not take the trip which they had planned due to an influenza epidemic. The primary purpose ot such
organizations is to encourage and further music appreciation and education. Mr. Glen Wallace, the director, has
worked diligently with the group to attain its purpose,
Stepping out in new uniforms given by the P. T. A., the band this year has helped the football team in
winning the bi-district' championship. Besides furnishing music for the annual Firemen's Supper, it has partici-
pated in the various parades including the Battle of Flowers Parade.
The officers chosen by both groups are president,Bill Cain1 vice-president, Nannette Boernerg secretary
and treasurer, Evangeline Staatsg and sponsors, Mary House and Harriet Drisdale.
The band and orchestra having given several entertainments, have been active socially throughout the year.
The orchestra furnishes music for assemblies, school plays, and all school events that require music. Meet-
ing every morning at eight o'clock, the whole group practices for fortyefive minutes and members are given in-
dividual instruction at one of the two classes held during the day for that purpose.

The most enthusiastic group to be found in Alamo Heights is without a doubt the Pep Squad. The girls'
untiring vim, vigor, and vitality shown throughout the football season helped the undefeated team to compete
for regional championship.
The girls work hard during the football season to entertain the spectators in the time during the half.
They may be seen early in the mornings, drilling under the tireless supervision of Miss Boles, their able spon-
sor. They not only march and form letters, but they furnish most of the pep, enthusiasm, and cheering.
Their activities are not over with the fall season, however. During the spring they hold meetings once a
month, have picnics and parties, and represent the school in the Battle of Flowers Parade. For all this, each
member receives ten points for extra curricular activities. ,
Six years ago the Alamo Heights Pep Squad was organized. and thirty names were on the roll. Now, there
are over a hundred members of this active organization.
The present officers are the following: President, Mary Skeltong vice-president, Dolly Kuntzg treasurer,
jewel Walkerg secretary, Dorothy Daking and sergeant-at arms, Sally Rogers.

Besides serving the journalism class as a practice school for its students, the Hoof Print has served as a
medium for transferring school news, gossip, and humor to the student body. Members of the Hoof Print
Staff, composed of those students taking journalism, have devoted the greater part of their spare time in giving
to the students of Alamo Heights a paper far superior to any offered them before.
Due recognition should be given to Bill Busbee, editor, and Dorothy Shaw, assistant editor of the Hoof
Print, who gave a great part of their free time to working on the Hoof Print.
Mr. Key, who sponsored the paper the first half of the school year was an important factor in the publish-
ing ofthe Hoof Print. It was his helpful instruction that really kept the paper going at all times despite the
circumstances. Miss Brigham, second sponsor of the Hoof Print, should also be praised in that she so efficiently
took up the sponsorship of the paper immediately upon becoming a member of the Alamo Heights faculty.
Although the editorial department of any paper is important, it is the advertising department that deter-
mines whether there will be a paper or not. Because it is a school paper, the Hoof Print has no other publish-
ing funds save those derived from advertising space sold in the paper. For the first half of the school term,
'limmie Clutter and Helen Graham served as the advertising managers, and the second half term, Luke Hill and
Sam Snell attended to this part of the paper.
Because of the lack of funds, the Hoof Print was unable to run newspaper cuts, but instead ran the cheaper
linoleum cuts. Those helping in this field were Bobby Wfinn and Teddy Frischmuth, who supplied the paper
with amusing yet artistic cuts.
One may be led to believe that the Hoof Print activity was confined just to Alamo Heights: however,
with the aid of exchange editor Harry Brunson, the staff managed to keep in contact with other schools in the

Under the joint guidan1e of Mrs, Pickens, Miss fflark, and Mrs. Neuhauser, the staff of the Ulmos has
produced an annual that is even better this year than the one last year. One of the most apparent improvements
is in the grade of paper used.
Helen Cir.iIi.:'n and Dorothy Shaw, members of the National Honor Society, were chosen as co-editors of
the IOV7 Olmos. Using the experience they have both gained in their work on the Hoof Print, these girls have
worked long and efficiently to prepare the attractive arrangement for this yearbook. Much credit is also due to
the following students who have given their time to help toward making this a better 1957 yearbook: head of
the circulation department, Harry Brunsong head of the business department, Wrilte-r Symondsg head of the
advertising department, Betty Herpel, snapshot editor, Billy Silveyg class picture editors, Mary Scott Locke and
Georgie Mae liuller.
The art department, consisting of Bobby Winn, Ted Frischmuth, and Ruth Dukes used the Mexican motif
in designing the book. On each title page is depicted a scene referring to the life or customs in Mexico.
Under the title "Activities" the start has attempted to present a comprehensive survey of the school year,
not chronologically arranged, but grouped according to the various clubs, sports, and other activities.
The annual this year is not dedicated to any one person, to any certain group, but to that particular thing
toward which we all have .1 deep feeling of pride and love-The greater Alamo Heights High School!

Seventeen ambitious boys and girls gathered together in September under the able direction of Mr. Todd
with one idea in mind-to debate. The first elimination was held january 18, 1937 and all but the above group
were eliminated with Anita Arneson and Eloise Lewis, Luke Hill and Robert Pincus making up the "A" teams.
This same group was chosen as the teams to represent the school in a final elimination on March 2.
On january 29, Alamo Heights conducted an invitation tournament of 28 teams representing seven schools-
Alamo Heights, jefferson, Brackenridge, john Reagan, Victoria, San Marcos, and Austin in which john Reagan
won first place.
Friday and Saturday, February 5 and 6, Alamo Heights participated in a tournament held at 'lohn Reagan
High School, Houston in which 25 schools were represented. Heights' boys were eliminated in the second elimi-
nation round andthe girls were eliminated in the semi-finals by Reagan, who was in turn defeated by San
Saturday, March 6, a tournament attended by five schools was held in San Marcos. Alamo Heights placed
again, the boys winning second place and the girls winning third place.
The Heights girls invaded Yoakum Friday and Saturday, March 12 and 15, to go to the quarter-nnal in
the tournament in which 40 schools were represented.
The largest tournament of the season was held in Austin, March 20, where 50 schools sought to place.
The Alamo Heights girls came through with flying colors to the quarter-finals when they were eliminated by
In the county tournament with South San Antonio, Edison, and Edgewood, Heights again brought home
the bacon when both the boys' and girls' teams took first places.
In all the tournaments Alamo Heights teams have made excellent showings and much credit must be given
Mr. Todd, who has given so much of his time toward furthering their success.
The high school chorus is composed of students from the Sophomore, junior, and Senior Classes. The
entire group consists of about one hundred students, both boys and girls, who meet three times a week-Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday, at eight o'clock in the high school auditorium. This organization does not attempt
to compete with professional choruses but is merely for those who enjoy singing and have no other opportunity
to do so. Anyone who is able to sing is eligible for membership.
Although it was not done this year, it is customary for the chorus to 'sing carols at Christmas time at the
teachers' homes. This year Christmas songs were sung at the December meetings of the Parent Teachers
Association in a very colorful program prepared entirely by the high school chorus with the help of Mr. Hill,
the sponsor. The entire chorus has performed often in assemblies, and also groups of from two to five people
out of the chorus have sung at school programs. At our pay performance this year the chorus sang numbers
taken from the gay nineties. The boys gave as their selection "The Tattoed Lady" with joe jelferds making a
good "lady," and the girls in their old fashioned dresses rendered the song "Hey, Babe, Say, Babe." Three
members of the chorus sang at the coronation of the queen Wednesday, March 31.
Popular songs are very much in demand by the students and comprise a large number of the songs sung,
but classical music is also studied. The boys' and girls' parts are learned separately and then put together. Each
student receives a grade every six weeks in chorus singing, and one-half a credit is received toward high school
graduation, and extra-curricular points are given for participating in various chorus activities.
