Soon for us will our school days he ended, And joys of youth that fade so fast. But we know that our hearts often ponder On memories of scenes that are past. There are joys that will long he remembered And friendships ma, that ne'er shall die. So here's a cheer for Alva High School, For Alva High School, for Alva High. f S ORVILLE KORN B. S., M. S.

We were headed by Marvin Marsh as president. After knocking around the halls for a year and acquiring a little more assurance, we became "sophisticated" sophomores. That year we chose Bob Simon as our leader. Finding sophistication a little hard to take, we re- laxed and the next year as "flighty" juniors, we flew through our junior year under the capable leadership of Claride Woodward, our first lady president. Our final year, as "mighty" seniors we reverted to custom and chose as our president, Bob Simon. Under his guidance we are having a wonderful final year in Alva High.

Initiation really gave them a fright, And to see bow they looked was quite a sight. The girls wore jeans, and dressed as boys, And to wear ten pigtails was the least of their joys The boys wore dresses and some had curls, The reason they did this was to look like girls. The Freshman party was a hayrack ride, And there were many couples sitting side by side Eighty-eight Freshmen, all of them new, Walking through the halls are really quite a few. Though at times to the teachers, we may seem a trial We hope that next year they'll think us worthwhile EILEEN SHALLOUP Yell Leader ALAN STEPHENSON Student Council Representative MARTHA SUE McCRARY Student Council Representative A A 'I BARBARA BUTLER JACK SIMON KARON SHELBY LEE MACKEY 4 fi 7 Y MARY MOORE ,, Q- PAT MCGINLEY OLETA BABCOCK AUSTIN TRAVERSE JORE'I'I'A THOMAS CARLOS ALEXANDER JANET WOODWARD JERRY HAYWARD DONNA McCORD .DARREL WIERSIG DONNA JO BRADLEY BILL HARZMAN RUTH DEVERY GORDON REED DONALD STITES CONNIE BEVIS 5:1 J 'G' D -'c 'R A Aa T I S 'S 49- J Nb Q3 ,SO ' N4 fi Q I., ,n .A-A ' 'S' 1 RA 'L - N 'fran ,B A .i x QS fg xdy. fm-ff 'X .L if Yi' asv 43 Y' wr, J' 4-5? w.

MARVIN MARSH, Center Letterman 2 yrs., Senior THE ALVA HIGH GOLDBUGS, under the coach- ing of Dean Simon and Byron Roberts, began their greatest season by defeating a strong Laverne team in a non-district game, 26 to 12. Showing some improvement in the next game they defeated Cherokee 51 to 25. Shattuck fell next victim to the ever improving Goldbugs by losing a well fought game 31 to 13. The Goldbugs' greatest rival, who next suffered defeat, was the Fairview Yellowjackets. After a 7 to 0 defeat last year, the Goldbugs whipped the Yellowjackets 46 to 0. The next game was with a strong, keyed-up Way- noka team. Alva came from behind to win 12 to 6. With four conference wins the Goldbugs defeated Jet 38 to 12. The next week they won a grueling, hard fought game from Woodward 38 to 28. The Goldbugs then traveled to Guymon and defeated them 32 to 7 in a dusty, JIM JACKSON, Tackle CONNIE BURDICK, End Letterman 3-yrs.. Senior Letterman 2 yrs., Senior U." x.

Garber, Confer ence winners of District I, came to Alva where they were defeated by the close score of 14 to 12. With high hopes, but not over-confident, the Gold bugs journeyed to Geary for the second district play-off game. Geary was defeated by the hustling Alva team 20 to 0. The Goldbugs went to Wynnewood for the state semi-finals. Alva scored first and the situation looked bright, but Wynnewood came back and the score at the half was 7 to 7. The second half Alva scored once and Wynnewood scored twice to defeat the scrappy Goldbug team 20 to 14. Although this defeat eliminated the Gold bugs, they closed one of the finest football seasons in Alva's history. RONALD APPLEMAN, End LARRY HELLMAN.
