A century has passed since Texas first became a
state in the American Union. For over fifty years
of this century Alvin community has undergone
changes in industry which have reflected the versa-
tility and the resources of this region and the spirit
of its people. The 1946 YELLOW .IACKET de-
picts the ever-changing panorama of Alvin's indus-
try as it keeps pace with a growing state .... The
X in i i' division pages picture stages of industrial growth,
- I drawing a contrast between the days when cattle 55525
l l roamed the prairies and more recent times when
U nursery and fruit orchards, dairy farms, oil der-
""-' K ricks, and rice fields have varied the landscape .... T

. THE BOARD OF EDUCATION
The Board of Education of the Alvin Independent School District
is composed of seven members and a recording secretary ....
J. E. Harriman is president of the board, and Max Vogan is re-
cording secretary. The other members are F. A. Duke, A. W.
Brown, W. R. McDaniel, George Duncan, Carlton Ely, and Dr.
H. E. Merz .... Mr. McDaniel is retiring from the board this
year after twenty-two years of service. This is the longest period
any member has ever served on the Alvin school board. We wish
to commend him for his long and faithful service to the school and
W- R- MCDANIEL community and to thank him on behalf of the student body for
his generous contribution to the welfare and progress of our schools .... The school board
has been much concerned this year with plans for the establishment of a junior college in
Alvin. The college plan will necessitate an enlargement and improvement program for the
entire school system. Facilities in the senior high school must provide seventeen class-
rooms and the addition of a vocational agriculture building and a wing to the home eco-
nomics cottage. A new primary building with its own cafeteria has been planned, and a
new building for North Side Latin-American School. Junior high school will also have a
new addition, with its own gymnasium, home economics rooms, and new classrooms.

Throughout our high school years, the Class of
1946 has contributed much to school activities:
programs, benefits, clubs, and scholastic work. We
have also taken an interest in civic projects such as
the clothing drive, bond drives, and health drives.
We can not say much about the year we were
sophomores. We were getting a real taste of high
school life. Our class sponsors that year were Miss
Willie Finger, Miss Verna Browning and Miss Bes-
sie Mae Key. Alfred Froberg was class president.
Duringjour junior year, Miss Mary Ray Wood
and Miss Phyllis Phillips were our class sponsors.
The whole Junior Class considered themselves
lucky to have two such wonderful sponsors. They
sat for hours in the Recreation Hall selling cold
drinks so that the class could have a "super-duper"
junior-senior banquet. We must not forget to men-
tion our junior play, One Mad Night, and the box
supper. In sports the juniors won the junior-senior
football game, the junior-senior basketball games,
and the annual Hag fight.
The first important event of our senior year took
place on Stunt Nite, when the class placed first
with a take-off on the Hallowe'en Coronation
called, Thr Rrvired Version of Browning and Finger.
Another memorable occasion was the Valentine
costume party given for the seniors in the Recrea-
tion Hall by Mrs. Otto Paris. Again this year our
class was blessed with two great sponsors, Miss
Verna Browning and Miss Willie Finger. Through
their Work, much has been done this year.
Here are some statistics concerning our class.
There are sixty members in the class at present,
seven having withdrawn since this school year
began. Five of the annual favorites were from the
senior class, nine of the football lettermen were
seniors, and three of the yell leaders are seniors.
The football sweetheart has been chosen from our
class for the past three years, and the queen for
the past two.
Many activities have been planned for the sen-
iors for the remainder of the year, including an
outdoor party, a barbecue and the annual "Kid
Day." Graduation takes place on May 23.

HISTIIHY UF THE EL SS UF '47
By Norman Peterson
ln the ninth grade, the Junior Class made the most
successful venture of its history up to that time.
That was the minstrel which was given to raise
money for the banquet we gave. Our banquet in
Hawaiian theme is still remembered as one of the
loveliest that has been held in this school. The class
officers at that time were these: Bob Alexander,
president, Mary Edith Sheafier, vice president,
and Shirley Smith, secretary. At the end of the
year came graduation from junior high school.
What an important time that was to us!
During the summer we were worrying about next
year's initiation. When next year came, we got it,
although there was a regulation against it. Now
we were in high school, but we seemed to have lost
our spirit temporarily. We did not even elect offi-
cers. Parties, which we had had almost every week
in 1945, were a thing of the past. Although we
helped put over various drives, we originated none
This year we were rather provoked at the strict
prohibition against initiating the sophomores, for
we had certainly had our share. The Junior Class
now is excelling in many ways. We are the largest
class in high school. Our candidate for queen of the
carnival, Shirley Smith, almost won the crown.
The junior representatives on the Student Council,
Bob Alexander, Jack Idoux, and Norman Peter-
son, hold the oflices of president, vice president,
and historian, respectively. Through the persist-
ence of the junior representatives, we received pins
this year in the Student Council. The junior home
rooms, led by the sponsors, Mrs. Fincher, Miss
Ard, and Miss Wood, won recognition in the year-
book sbuscription campaign, Miss Ard's room
winning the prize.
The junior play, given by the class to raise funds
for the banquet, was The Whole Town'.r Talking.
It was directed by Miss Edna Shaw. The play was
produced within three weeks after its first re-
hearsal. The junior-senior banquet, followed by
the prom given by the seniors, closed our year of
activities. We have many pleasant memories of
school behind us, but now we look ahead to our
senior year, which we hope will be the best.

JACKETS THIRD IN DISTRICT 28-A
The Alvin High School Yellow Jackets came in for third place in the District 28-A con-
ference this year. the Jackets were inexperienced and had only five lettermen from the
1944 squad. Middlebrook and Milling played fine ball at ends, Froberg and Forgy blocked
well at tackles. Hoskey and Hawkins at guard and Idoux at center played good defensive
games .... In the backfield, Davidson played good ball until he received a shoulder
injury. Hawkins, regular guard, took his place and played well. Villalovas was the spark-
plug of the backlield because he was fast. Hering, Eernisse, Plautz, Paris and Alexander

SEE E5 AT CAMP
The football team this year can be
happy over the fact that they had
the privilege of attending summer
camp. For the first time since 1939
the boys had the opportunity to
participate in the training and
good times at summer football
training at Camp Rio Vista.
The pictures on this page show
some of the good times they en-
joyed on the trip. The picture in
the upper right shows the boys
who stayed in the cabin with
"Rip." The ones pictured at lower
right were coach's "pets."
At camp the Alvin Yellow jack-
ets met boys from Robstown, and
Reagan, and played football with
them. The trip lasted eight days.
The boys practiced twice a day to
get ready for the tough season's

This airplane view shows junior high school and a part of the school
campus and buildings.
The Alvin Junior High School is housed in a modern fireproof building
containing nine classrooms besides a library and offices. The present
building is already inadequate for the needs of junior high school. The
students share with senior high school the use of the auditorium,
band house, cafeteria, gymnasium, industrial arts, and home eco-
nomics buildings. Below are shown two views of junior high: the front
entrance and the south entrance.
