FAULK Mr. Faulk dedicated his lite to the growth and establishment ofthe Aransas Pass Public Schools, He watched the schools grow from one small building, housing 200 students, to a modern school system, enrolling more than 1600, during his 25-year term as superintendent here. He will always be remembered by the students and faculty: and his life will be a challenge to all. 2 dhsation 4 MRS. H. T. FAULK 'Behind every great man there is a great woman", and Mrs. Faulk is indeed a great woman. She not only aided Mr. Faulk in a way no one else could, but promoted the growth of the P.T.A. with her service and.loyalty. Staff cledicates the 1954 Panther Prowl.

ALLEN who faithfull served on the School Boarjfor I7 years. 5 Suv rint nd n May l congratulate you on your achievements in preparing this pictorial record. ln the years to come, as you look through your annual, may it bring pleasant memories of your years in APHS. We need to recognize that freedom of the mind is as sacred as freedom of the press, freedom of worship, and freedom of assembly. Our school has taught you to think for yourselves, to focus and discipline your mind. This freedom of mind is yours, the most precious of possessions. Use it well and the world is in your grasp. 5 f 6 l .gun li .gl lj Prine ill I Webster, among other definitions, describes a student as 'an attentive and systematic obser- ver". Naturally, these qualities should not be confined only to a school or classroom. You are students today and workers of tomorrow. Citizens today must be more than attentive and systematic observers. Opportunity knocks once at your door, then why not give your best to the school by your spirit and your personality. You will take from the school its contribution to your dreams.and visions, and its shaping of your skills to perform in Iife's service. May memories of high school reward you richly all the days of your life. 7 NOLAN ASHMORE HERBERT CHISUM Science 84 Driver Education Band ,L T.

They have gathered from all parts of the world for this gala occasion. Miss Janie Mayer is head scrub lady in J. M. Guidorz hotel in Estes, only one of his many hotels on earth. She has lust accounced the Master of Ceremonies, Miss Wavera Gilpin, and asked if any one has washing to take it to Waggy's Laundry in Ingleside for a real clean iob. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. The first noted person we'll see is that great scientist, Jackie' Almon, who invented the "Zn bomb which guar- antees to rebuild the world after the "H" bomb destroys it. You've all heard of Bauknight Fashions. We have with us Miss Joann Bauknight, originator of the new space- travel designs, and her famous model, Billie Jo Simms, wearing her latest creation, "Spring is Sprung". Doesn't it look lovely with her Mohawk? And now we have the president of the Beasley-Weasley Grocery Company, Mr. Johnny Beasley. What is the price of rice is lower Slobbovia these days? Admiral Bepty, lust returned from sailing around Mars in his famous life raft with his crew of Tommy Smith and Jimmy Johnson, who made the startling discovery that Kellogg's Pep does not snap, crackle, and pop on Mars. We are fortunate, indeed, to have the former Miss Universe, Miss Gayle Bigelow, with us today. She is now a Mrs. Won't you say a few words for the press? Madame Buian flew down here in a special space ship from Venus. She has been teaching the hula dance to all the Venetians. Maybe Senorita Wheatley and her band of dancers, Helen Chappell and Glenice Heasley, wi II do a number ,for us. And Nola Jane is owner of the famed Dude Ranch, "Priceless Paradisen. Is hubby with the children, tonight? Dr. Cranfill, did you leave the death-bed ofthe King lust to be here? This is indeed a pleasure, l am sure. Marilyn Monroe finally stopped using Ayds, that miracle calorie counter, you all know, and Genevieve Curry has taken her place in the spotlight. She, too, has married a Joe. B. J. Demory, author of uParadise Foundn is among the crowd of celebrities tonight. I'm sure she will give an autograph with every book she sells tonight. A Sir John Dupnik, national idol of women everywhere, is seated at the far end of the table. Down, girls! Oh, here is Le Clere, your old classmate Santa, currently noted as the best-dressed'Martian, iust back from her sixth honeymoon. She is Mrs. Anderson again. Hammerlock Fender, making his comback after being defeated by Awful Arvid, you may have known in his pre-wrestling days as Arvid Johanson, took time out from training to be with us tonight. President of our senior class, Joe Frandolig, has reached the height as President of the Universe. It is amaz- ing what can happen in iust ten years. Professor Freeze, just returning from the ancient ruins of Aransas Pass, has discovered a strange sounding record called ,Honey Hush' remarkably preserved. You have all heard of the case of Freddie Soward vs. the Supreme Court of the Universe. Here is that lawyer and famous debater, Homer Garza who won the case for Mr. Soward, and is now free to play his baritone any place in the universe without being arrested for disturbing the peace. 104 Tina Gristy was not able to be with us tonight but he has sent his picture on 4D TV which he invented. l'd have someone turn on the set but why ruin a wonderful banquet? Tommy and Harolene Hadden have carried the class prophecy of Most Likely to Marry and are now blessed with nine sets of twins, boys! General Smith's beautiful wife, Mable Howard. your class favorite of '54, is seated at the far end of the table. This is indeed an honor. We have iust received an announcement that Shirley Jordan won the toe hop at the Olympics. The former win- ner, Billy Olson, was disqualified because he spelled his name wrong on the entrace blank. Clifford McClary, taking Liberace's place, iust returned from his concert at Carnegie Hall with his glamorous wife, Nell. Won't you play us your latest composition? Lady Luck has smiled on us tonight since Nona Moore, local heroine who has iust rescued thirteen people from the space crash on the moon, is here on the far side of the table. I think she deserves a big hand. Maybe some of you have noticed on the backs of Super Comics, Billy Parks' Atlas course. Maybe he will re- move his coat and show us his muscles. Phyllis Ridgway, better known as Friendly Phyllis, head of the love-lorn society on Jupiter, is here with her latest recommendation. Buddy Starr has iust bought the Cadillac Manufacturing Company. Their latest addition is Starr-lite, the fast- est space car on 3 wheels. He has plans for a new smaller line called "Twinkle-Twinkle". Many of you have seen the new play, "Everybody Snores", and in the audience tonight is the distinguished playwright, Bob Stokes, author of this play. And we have with us tonight Doyle Beagle, the noted space rod racer, and his lovely wife, Joan. Virgil Sims and Jack Hedgecoke, known as the Mad Hatters, have brought the sketches of their latest hat styles and l'm sure they are simply out of this world. Nancy Hauser and Effie Jo Lee, famous 4D TV stars are in costume for their latest show, 'The Charles More- head Storyn, autobiography of that famous band leader of the Tennessee Plow Boys. Ethel Koenig, the new ambassador to Venus, has iust made a flying visit to this country to speak to Congress on 'Crumminism vs. Americanism". Lewis Jernigan, manufacturer of that new trend in lipstick "Green Flamen, is seated at the back of the room. His motto is-'lf you are not completely satisfied, bring the lipstick back on person and l will remove it free of charge". Also in the crowd are the old teachers of the class of '54-Mr. Franklin, who is now teaching the children on Jupiter how to draw glass houses and to make belts out of platinum, is taking time out to be with us. Mrs. Ericson, the lady with the seeing eye dog, has retired from the teaching profession and is now running a home for lost cats. Her husband, Mr. Ericson, was recently appointed Superintendent of the toothpick factory which now stands where APHS rested until the schools were banned from the earth. Yes, AP HS makes good toothpicks. And here are those newly,weds, the former Miss Warren and Ernie. They do make a striking couple, don't,they? Ernie is now head of the police department at Lower Slobbovia and Miss Warren is first sergeant in charge of adult deliquency. Why, Mrs. Griffith, how nice to have you with us! l know how busy you are manufacturing your pills which end all the need for cooking. What flavor are you eating now? Steak or mince pie? Mr. and Mrs. Ellis, do you have a new dance step to demonstrate? You are all doing the rabbit flip which they introduced several years ago at the opening of the show. It is indeed a pleasure to have Professor Ashmore here tonight. This is the first time he has been onthe planet since he and his wife set out for the Moon to work on the Ashmore Theory. The only person in the world who can explain it is his daughter, Mary Lou. Oh yes, he should be congratulated since he was blessed with triplet boys! 105 UNITED CARBON C0 INC P AND LOYEES 10 6 ongralulalions K f .
