Toddiing infants yesterday-proud grad-
uates today! 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.

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-
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-
homa Massey, Gerald McNees, Bob Gardenhire, Bill Hol-
man, Charles Wilbanks, Robert Dubberstein, Milton McCul-
lough, Henry Baum.

luniors of l94O lived down the unpleasant title of "under
classmenn by making an enviable record for themselves
in every line of activity. 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.

DO1'1'l be misled by the-er-disinterested
expressions on the laces of these juniors.
They don't look that way because of any
particular desire to get back to classy
the sun was in their eyes. You Can't tell
it by looking, but there are a lot ol good
students in this group.

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.

The sixty red-and-white marchers, of the A. H. 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.
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
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

Determination like this pushed this book to a reality. When
the business staff realized their responsibility in financing
this book, they -were slightly staggered. However, their
sincere desire for a senior book made hard work mere
play, and S400 rolled in fast-or did it, Charles?
Assisting Charles Wilbanks, business manager, were Bob
Cwardenhire and Glenn Wilson. Cthers on the business
staff were Halcolm Crawford, Bill Holman, Wayne Daniel,
Billy Rector, Ralph Herzmark, lames Gibson, Betty Spear-
man, lerry Mary Leeman, Marie Hoyle, Lahoma Massey,
Shirley Miller, and lo A. Russell, sponsor.

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.
