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 Q31 3'-wma 3596 ff?

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. W. H.

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. 24 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. Umnus CLASS UFFIEEH5 JACK Inoux NORMAN PETERSON Prendent Vice-Prerident SHIRLEY SMITH ESTHER WILLIAMS- Seeretary Trearurn 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 of them. This year we were rather provoked at the strict prohibition against initiating the sophomores, for 25 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. if , L-V f S , mm. 2 ,zzf " ' if'1gI", is 2 5-If if ,,.,E , l.., , f .M 1 - 9, Q 3, - 4- fsfffafif ' sU"f 55js-1112.5-' v .

Ready for the Sadie Hawkins Day race. Gentlemen, bewarel They mean business. Alvin Senior High School becomes Dogpatch once each year.

One feature of the day last year was a contest to see which girl could concoct the most "be-yo6-ti- ful" corsage for her Lil' Abner. Cauliflower, onion, lettuce, car- rots, and turnips served as media for experimentation.The picture at left shows some of the winners ex- hibiting their corsages with justifi- able pride. l RECREATION HALL Not only on Sadie Hawkins Day, but on week-ends and many special occasions, the Recreation Hall fur- nishes a meeting place for dancing, companionship, and relaxation.

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 "carried the leather ruggedlyf' The picture below shows the "A" team ready for action. 60 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 schedule. ,V V K - H In .,. . .il ' fire y l f! as Q , -4..i. if? t 61 LETTER lVl N BUBEH HERING, Blocking Back. Good blocker.

Basketball and tennis are among the favorites of the girls and each year a tournament is carried on among the classes. Mrs. Cook, the gym teacher, tries to teach the girls the proper ways to play each sport, and she is very popular among the girls because of her willingness to help. As a whole, the girls look for- ward to each hour of every day playing in the gym. In the pictures: Top-Mrs. Cook, gym teacher. Middle-The fifth period girls enjoy a game of basketball.
