Once again we as school mates assemhle.
We fain would lift our hearts in song.

Let gladness the moments prolong.

Of honors won in days gone hy,
So here's a cheer for Alva High School,
For Alva High School, for Alva High.
Here's to our classes, here's to our lasses,
Here's to the lads they adore.
Here's to the Seniors so mighty,
lunzors so flzghty, Freshies and Sophomores
Let mirth and gladness hanish all sadness,
And as the days go hy
You'll find us ready and steady
Boosting for Alva High.
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.

IN 1946 A GROUP OF green, frightened
freshmen entered Alva High. 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.

When we were Freshies, we felt rather small
Because of initiation, new studies and all.
Anal at assemblies, sometimes you could hear
That quite brave but feeble Freshman cheer.
But now on Fridays, we let out a roar
To let visitors know we're Freshies no more.
The Sophomore Year is so much more lun
But still we'ue gotten our studies done.
And when we're Seniors, so very almighty
Anal start to loole down on the Sophomores, so flighty,
l'm sure we'll remember all the memories so dear
Which only can come with the Sophomore Year.

A bunch of green Freshmen arrived in September
And they're a group we hope you'll remember.
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

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,

Emerging as Conference winners, the Goldbugs
were eligible for the district play-offs. 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
