Time, and the Ardmore school system, have wrought great changes since these pictures were made. In fact, the difference is so great that the reader will have difficulty in identifying these strapping youngsters as the al- mighty upperclassmen of today. Don't try to guess who they areg consult the key on page 41. X.. N! ll- .Eaak 0 WMU, Jena We Game Small in numbers, but tops in energy and ability, the l94O seniors have shonein just about everything in high school for three glorious years. From the ranks of these l5O aggres- sive upper classmen have come many of Ardmore High School's best scholars, leaders, athletes, speakers, and ac- tors. But let their record speak for itself. This year they won the Student Council service cup for the first semester, and at the last counting of points were ahead in the second semester competition. Some of the leading contributors to this victory were leannette Ellis and Gail McWilliams, both "straight A" students and commonly conceded to be geniuses. Taking the lead in class activities was canny and careful Gene Ritter, senior president. Also, the seniors supplied more than their quota of athletes this year, on the football squad were lohn Cole, R. C. Bates, Bob Shell, Wayne Daniel, Richard Vaughan, and limmy Payne. Senior basket ball lettermen included Richard Vaughan, "Hi" Bussell, I. A. Cross, Paul Duncan, Robert Williams, and all- state sharp-shooter lakie Chambers. Senior Groaners on the wrestling mats were Richard Head, Vernon Moyers, Wayne Daniel, and lohn Bramlet. Another big haul for the upper- classmen was made when Bill lngler won first place in the oratorical contest. A masterpiece in "mellerdrammer" was "Seven Sisters", the senior play. Characters were Frieda Daniel, lerry lack, Betty V. Hintz, Betty Garrison, Ieannette Ellis, lune McGehee, Frankie Cooley, ferry Mae Leeman, lnola Frost, Marjorie Wymore, Gloria Frame, Betty Nan Den- nes, Mar lane Hagen, Awilda Payne, Shirley Miller, La- Y homa Massey, Gerald McNees, Bob Gardenhire, Bill Hol- man, Charles Wilbanks, Robert Dubberstein, Milton McCul- lough, Henry Baum.

Under the leadership of such capable paceesetters as President David Hancock, Viceepresident Evelyn Moore, Secretary Martha Mclntire, and Treasurer Elizabeth Merrick, the middlemen were a good second in the race for the Student Council Service Award. ln this com- petition the luniors kept their shoulders to the wheel and led the school in attendance and scholarship. Third year English and other curricular pitfalls were no obe stacles to lanice lessee, Nancy Gray, Elora Belle lvie, and Mary Louise Suggs. These four had "straight A" records for the first semester. Scoring heavily for their class in forensics were Kirk Dyer and George Ellis, who placed second and third, respectively, in the thirty-fifth annual oratorical contest held in observance of Washington's birthday. These versatile second-classmen not only showed ability in the gentlemanly art of speaking, but ten football and four basketball sguadsmen came from the junior ranks. lf we can judge the future by the past, the senior class of "4l" will set many records.

Iohnson- CHEERFUL BEGINNERS IN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL OFFICIAL ACTIVITIES, 'WHERE TO NOW? au Wane Gnce A rosy future is predicted for the sophomores-a class whose first act in high school was to organize their 245 students into a powerful political group. The result was the election of Margaret Gilreath, popular sophof more, as Football Oueen of Ardmore High School. The ambitious beginners continued their show of good sense by selecting as their president Colleen Massad, who is also president of the girls' pep club. As the year wore on, the green and white proved to be a major factor in the athletic fortunes of the school. Sopho- rnores Robert Hutchins, lames Hattensty, limmie Duke, Glen Owens, and Warren Woods carried a good share of the football load, and Don Cummings was an indispen- sable cog in Coach Paul Youngs basketball machine. Much to the awe of their classmates, Elmer Klein and Tommy lohnson burned enough midnight oil to receive "straight A" reports for the entire first semester. Still further proof that the sophomores have energy to burn was the instance of the thirty-fifth annual oratorical contest, when Norma lackson and Katie Frank Slack delivered original orations. Whether they return as leaders, scholars, ath- letes, or orators, this up-andfcoming class will be back next year-with a vengeance. Sophomore officers: Charlette Tyer, vice-president: leanne Low- enstein, treasurer: Colleen Mas- sad, presidentp Gwendolyne Moy- ers, secretary. I.

S. band, led by two snappy majors and a pair of high-stepping majorettes, presented quite a spectacle of precision and color at football games, parades, rallies, and other important school events this year. Sporting-the natty white major's uniforms are I. B. McCullar and the diminutive Bobby Scott. The pride of the red and white are Boots l-larris and Betty lo Scott, twirlers deluxe. President of the band for l94O was Charles "Squeegee" Wil- banks, who may be seen staggering under the weight of a baritone horn at the extreme right of the above picture. Sol M. Lowenstein, veteran instructor of instrumental music, organized the high school band thirteen years ago, the uni- formed marching group was assembled in l937. Due to Mr. Lowenstein's severe illness this year, the l94U marching band is under the direction of Emanuel Lowenstein, brother of Sol and an accomplished musician. , I EMANUEL LOWENSTEIN Ardmore High Schools two maior instrumental groups, the band and orchestra, help to spread Ardmore High School's name far and wide, and at the same time provide an excellent musical education for all the students in the department. The orchestra has made great progress since its organization in l9U7g the thirty-tour piece symf phonic instrumentation oi l94U has grown from a little group composed of violins, trombones, and cr piano. Winner of many trophies, the orchestra is indispensable at all school gatherings. Emanuel Lowenstein, temporary director of the band and orchestra is a graduate of the New Eng- land Conservatory ot Music. Upon completing his studies the-re under Phillip ot Paris he moved to Mwuc St. Louis, where he studied composition with George Chadwick at the St. Louis Beethoven Conservatory. Mr. Lowenstein then came to Ard- more, where he taught in the old Hargrove Col- lege, and later began his career as a private teacher. Present members of the orchestra are lack Smith, Myrtle Stamps, Fred Stayton, Charles Wilbanks, Mary lo Wilbanks, Betty Vtfhitiield, Manette Low- enstein, Gwendolyn Moyers, Gerald McNees.

A GAME BUNCH OF LADS AND THEY ALWAYS COME OUT SMILING WHETHER THEY WIN OR LOSE o 0 7 af We Wm. . .04 fade. It's not whether we won or lost, but how we play' ed the game! This is Coach Paul Young's sum- mary of the past football season just completed by the Ardmore Tigers. Perhaps the score was in- dicated by a minus sign, but the actual score of the season was determined by the physical fit- ness, good sportsmanship and leadership of the players. Helping Coach Young were Leighton Peddy and Gustave Ediger, both excellent line and baclcfield coaches. The Tiger mentor was faced with the task of rounding a comparatively green squad into shape before the date of the first game-and prior to the date of the toughest schedules ever faced by an Ardmore football squad. Playing the Healdton Bulldogs for the first game of the season, the Tigers fought to a l2-l2 tie. During mid-season the Ardmore fans received one of the season's few highlights when the Tigers scored l8 points a- gainst a strong Gainesville club, one of the strong- est defensive teams in the state of Texas. Last, the Tigers journeyed to Pauls Valley to battle a strong Panther eleven but failed to win by the margin of 19-7. This game closed the year's schedule for the Tigers, and gave the players the much needed experience for a very promising team this fall. Football lettermen for this year include Iohn Cole, R. C. Bates, Bob Shell, Wayne Daniel, Richard Vaughan, limmy Payne, seniors, Vernon Stanley, Dan Mahoney, Robert Hutchins, Bob Longino, Quinton Dunn, Leonard Wray, Iackie Sandlin, lames Crowe, Billy Freeman, juniors: Leland Weichbrodt, Iimmie Duke, Glen Owens, Warren Woods, Iames Hattensty, sophomores.
