The seniors of 1941 had their share of honors-also worries. From this class could be found the top-ranking scholars, athletes, and orators of the school. Leading these seniors was George Ellis who was always ready, willing, and able to do his part. The scholars are too numerous to name, but outstanding among these are Bobbie Norvill and Mary Louise Suggs. During the year sports caught everyone's eye especially those of the senior boys. Iames Crowe, Billy Freeman, Robert Hutchins, Hiram Keith, Hubert Heron, Vernon Stanley, and Durwood Pate were the senior football lettermen. The basketball players consisted of Hubert Heron and Dur- wood Pate, and the wrestlers were Edwin Ewell and Hiram Keith. While these different sport activities were in full swing, the Ardmore High School Playhouse pre- sented the senior play, "American Passport," in which eighteen seniors participated. At the end of the first semester, a number of honorary plaques were awarded to the different classes by the Student Council. The seniors won several, two of them being for scholarship and attendance. Nine represented the seniors in the Student Council, of which Martha Colvert was president, Bobbie Norvill, parliarnentariany Nancy Gray, secretary: and Carol Ptisser, treasurer.

In fact, all the seniors of 1941 look that Way, and these on this page are even more so because they are the officers of this year's graduating class. Holding one of these offices is quite a responsibility and also an honor. The president is George Ellis who is one of the most outstanding persons in this class. Other officers are Flora Belle lvie, secretary: Evelyn Moore, vice-president: and Martha Mclntire, treasurer, while the Student Council representatives-at-large are Walter Coin and Nancy Gray.

'ffgwx r L L BQLL 4 WWW- N365 ,fs QQ' , If the junior Class had won nothing but first and second places in the Oratorical Contest, it would have been honor enough to last one class all year. But these perky juniors, scorned at first by the seniors and ignored by the sophomores, again left their rival classes far behind in the race for the much-strived-for Service Cup, which was awarded at the end of the first semester. On top of all that, the juniors got away with the punctuality award which was given with the Service Cup. For weeks now, since these honors befell the "great middle class," the sophomores and the mighty seniors have lurked in the dark corners of the building in a half-bewildered, half-ashamed state. To add to their misery, Mrs. Schenk's junior home room won the home room Basketball Tournament. In addition to this, three of the nine members the juniors have in the Student Council are execu- tives-namely, Elmer Klein, vice-president, and Helen Fletcher, corresponding secretary, both Stu- dent Council representatives-at-large, and jimmy Duke, reporter. Elmer, incidentally, was elected vice-president of the Southeastern District Student Council Congress at Madill, November l, 2. Marjorie McNees put up a good fight in the Band Queen Contest, not to mention that the juniors, winning the competitive assembly, made their chances for the next Winning of the Service Cup even better. Miss Ethel McClure is sponsor and class officers are: Margaret Gilreath, president: Kenneth Payne, vice-president: Gwendolyne Moyers, secretary: and Stanley Woodruff, treasurer. All in all, this has been very definitely a junior year! Page Twenty-three :4'Qf, ' v N V. . 'h X V -HQ' flgflx -u .af K f 198 -vi.

Afterwards, however, sighs of relief were heard x. plus two long groans from Mr. Io - Russell, director and Maria lane Hall, assistant, for the first night of the play was over and a success at that. The same story may be told of Friday night's presentation which ful- E filled and completed the tradition of the annual senior play of Ardmore High School. The cast included George Ellis, Manette Lowenstein, Virginia Isbell, Crawford Rogers, Nancy Gray , Martha Colvert, Bill Galt, Bette San- ders, Carol Risser, Darrell White- hurst, Othella Gordon, Betty Io Scott, Mary Louise Suggs, Iuanita Davis, Thomas Norman, Iuanda Brady, Betty lane Fields, and Weaver Iohnson. ggi i "What a Life," a Henry Aldrich play, was pre- sented last April as an all-school production under the direction of Mr. Io Russell, with Mary Louise Suggs, Bette Sanders, and Nancy Gray as student directors. Henry Aldrich, who was portrayed by Robert Scruggs and Thomas Norman, emerged from one mix-up to find himself in more confusion. However, the entire trouble was traced to George Bigelow, a bully and trouble-maker. And so the curtain fell on another "Oh-but-I'm-in-a-mess" plot which ended happily, leaving an audience just as happy. rg 1 l W if Al. .E Page Forty-three . .4 The pride and joy of Ardmore Highschool this year has been its snappy sixty-piece band.

In front, leading the parade With Billy were prancers Dorothy Engelhardt, Betty Io Scott, and diminutive Bobby Gene Scott.

This year'.s Tigers featured dogged defense, consistent scoring, and ex- cellent teamwork. The Tigers were comparatively small in stature but big in playing heart. Their real fight and de- termination became apparent in the last game of the season against their present co-championship holder, Ada High School's Cougars, in a game that went into three overtimes. Lettermen this year were: Charles Baker, Don Cummings, Lynn Gilstrap, Hubert Heron, Willie Ioe Hightower, Kenneth Humphreys, Durwood Pate, Max Pinkard, I. L. Walker, and lack Williams. With the close of the wrestling season, three of the squad's members were brought into the lime- light after winning various honors at the regional meet held in Pauls Valley last February. They were Leland Weichbrodt, heavy weight championship, Hiram Keith, third in the 154 pound class and Albert Stringer, third in the l65 pound division. The boys, under the direction of Walter E.

The selection of editors, who are changed at intervals, is based chiefly on the amount of enthusi- astic effort and Work put out on each issue. This year's editors have been Tommy Norman, Carol Risser, Frances Ann Dunlap, and Myrtle Stamps. Following the pictures at the top of the page We see the Tigerite in its six main stages. The first of these steps is getting the facts on the hot "neWs-tip," which may come in the form of an athletic event, an important school election, or merely a Friday night at the "Y." After se- curing his information your reporter settles down to the Herculean task of Writing the article in such a manner that it catches and holds the interest of the reader from beginning to end. Next comes the tedious job of stencil cutting, the finished product often turning out to be more correction fluid than stencil. The special touches and heads are now ready to be cut. This step is not half so drastic as it sounds but does require an abundant supply of time and pati- ence. After being mimeographed, it goes through the last stage of being stapled, and it is now that your copy of the Tigerite, as you see it, is ready to go on sale. Thus the editing and publishing of the Tigerite is just another phase of glorifying the poor, insignificant news-tip. Page Forty-nine -nw ' x . -. A- . . 1 ,-.-M ,. f L ' 'V N i gl . 14.

W - The little red schoolhouse has undergone a great change. lts hard wooden benches, its old wood stove, and its small hand bell have made way for more modern things. The building itself has grown in size to provide room for an increasing number of minds eager for knowl- edge. The specialized training required for today's successful life demands that the old cur- riculum of readin', writin', and 'rithmetic be supplemented by various forms of physical de- velopment-as both are necessary for a well-balanced school career. A special expansion of our school is the brick, tile, and concrete gymnasium located be- tween the junior and senior highschool buildings. This structure is to contain the school ad- ministrative offices, a maplewood basketball floor, coach's quarters, equipment rooms, locker rooms, and a practice room for the band. Seating 1,500 people, heated by four motor-driven fans, and possessing a basketball court that will better its model, the court at Classen highschool of Oklahoma City, in that it will have the best locker room obtainable. Our gymnasium will be the best of any such structure now owned by any school in southern Oklahoma. The construction of the building is under the supervision of Mr. A. C. Brown, superintendent in charge of construction, and Mr. Harold Flood, architect. The seniors are moaning because they won't be able to use the gym this year, but it will be ready for the present junior, sophomore, and freshman classes this fall. ms f :fem Page Fifty cVVleacIonA-aqnnow Cha-:onoQet Co. 201 W.

Being a census'taker in a place as large as New York City ls no fun, but today I saw so many of my old schoolmates that it made me think of the good old days. Remember what a record-fiend Clarence Bivens was? Well, he and Betty lane Harris have a shop of their own, now. Richard Couch's familiar name was mentioned in our con- versation. He is really famous, now that he is starring in the title role of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Cleburne Cude is doing all right, too. Bobbie Norvill and Kennith Frakes finally became editor and business manager, res- pectively, oi "Mademoise1le." I happened on a theatre where Bette Ruth Sanders was directing Shakespeare's "Macbeth," with Dan Mahoney in the title role. Othella Gordon was Lady Macbeth and Iackie Sandlin was disguised as Hecate, Queen of the ARDMORE PRINTING CO. 22 North Washington Phone 1392 Robert L. Turner Witches. Mary Louise Rawson, Gladys Whittaker, and Rotha Stubbs were "honorary witches." This came as a result of their wonderful performances back in Mrs. Mad- den's English classes. As promptress Betty lane Fields did an excellent job. F As it was late and I was nearly starving to death, I dropped into the first cafe I saw and came face to face with none other than George Nail, chef du cuisine of his own restau- rant at last. Employed as chief dishwasher de luxe were Raymond Howie and G. C. Shaw who really get the job done. While waiting to be served my Gray's Granulated Food Tablets, originated by Nancy Gray who directs the functions of a New- Foods Plant Ltd. of London, Vienna, Toronto, and Ardmore, I glanced at a newspaper lying near by and in Winchell's column I saw the names of four of my old friends, Oleta Davis, W. D. Hall, Mary Frances Sumner, and Gerald Bright who are still double- dating. Will the boys never say "yes?" HILL 61 SHIPE A. C.

I also saw where Iva Dee Murphree, Lucretia Stoutt, Bobbie lean Caudle, and Alicia Whitenberg are assistants of Mary Fern Patterson who has lately become keeper of the Art Museum. Miss Patterson, with the aid of her assistants, has just completed an art project she started under Mr. Russell in senior high school which has unanimously been named the ninth wonder oi the world. Then turning to the sport's page I discovered Hubert Heron and Iohn Fisher have become a professional basketball team with Guy Brewster as their manager, and have writ- ten a book on "How to Become a Basketball Team in 10 Easy Lessons or One Hard One." Also read where Fran- ces Ann Dunlap now stands in for Katherine Hepburn be- cause they look so much alike. "The Ardmore Story," which tells of life in Ardmore, Oklahoma, back in 1941 is Frances' latest hit. Billy Freeman has become head fore- man of a brand new ranch a few miles from New York City. It was christened "El Rio Rancho de La Grande" and I hear Bill really makes those cows hustle! And Martha Colvert has been recently appointed President of the Presidents Club whose members include people who are President of so many things they have to keep a record of it! Kenneth Boles made his debut into the Metropolitan but hasn't sold any insurance, as yet! After my lunch as I walked through the park I saw David Hancock plucking the petals off a daisy as he mumbled, "Earlene Watson--Betty McLean-!?" l-lasn't he made up his mind yet? Then here came De Maurice Prater with her happy little "tribe" behind her and stopping by the skating rink at the far end of the park I recognized its owner to be Homer "Sonja Henie" Longino.

Charles Coe was teeing off as Ipassed by his miniature golf course, where for l0c an hour he teaches small children how to become the world's greatest amateur junior champ- ions. As I was walking by the Little Church Around the Corner I saw someone on the steeple. At first I thought a repair job was being done but then I recognized my old friend of high school days, Walter Coin, getting an angle shot ot Mary Ann Taylor's and Tom Loughridge's wed- ding. Incidentally, this was a romance dating back to high school days. As I crossed Fifth Avenue I was accidentally tripped by Lowell Bransford who was standing in the middle of the street waving his arms frantically. Don't misunderstand- he finally realized his ambition and is now the assistant to the assistant of the third traffic cop of New York City. A loud scream startled me and I turned to see Randell Long a block away, carrying on his duty in vain. Randell is likewise employed. Saw Mildred Underwood walking down the same street with a book on her head-she was practicing poise. Mil- dred was on her way to Conde Nast's studio where she is gradually taking the place of that famous model Iinx DEPARTMENTS tContinued from Page 101 "Cheers for Miss Bishop," was dedicated to her.

Glancing up I saw a sign which said "Neysa Son-Music Department" and as I stopped in I was just in time to see Neysa herself making a successful sale of one large nickelodeon. She still loves music, I see! I was nearly run down by I. D. Scearce as he sped along Broadway in his Mistletoe Express Truck. He's running the whole works now and really didn't mean to slaughter me. I-Ie was merely fulfilling the slogan: "You say it, Mistletoe, I can't express myself." Heard a loud commotion and turned to discover Flora Belle Ivle and Durwood Pate having it out with Einstein over the eighth dimension. In case you'd like to know, Flora Belle and Durwood beat Mr. E. to the Sth, 6th, and 7th, Saw Virginia Isbell, "dripping" with silver fox furs, stepping out of a limousine in front of the R. C. A.

Ruth also demonstrated the art of using the product, which she mastered in senior high school. Upon turning in on- other direction I discovered that Meloween. Ford and Iuanita Coleman had.finally fulfilled their hearts desire. They were hat-check-girls-in-chief!I Glancing at the hats I noticed the chapeaus ot Robert Hutchins and Hiram Keith, football heroes of 1941 on Ardmore Tiger's team, and saw them buying peanuts from Paul Iones, who sold them in a booth all his own.

Upon leaving l noticed Morris Allen, elaborately dressed doorman, flirting with Dee Adrian Buchanan, Novella Cypert, and Dorothy Davis, which was perfectly all right except that they were part of the show across the street. Eva Marie flew into a rage but was soon calmed down when the girls departed, Novella having seen Hubert fa childhood romance still bloomingl entering their show build- ing across the street. Saw Dorothy Engelhardt, Mary Belle Folsom, and Dwatn Greenwood had opened a new beauty parlor named "Toupee de la Blondeeeee." They also appeared in medi- cine shows out in front of their building, which was for the sole purpose of drawing customers, in which they sold "Golden Gleme" hair tonic and gave free demonstrations twice a day. And, as a branch of this Beauty Shop, Myrle Watts and Vallie Fern Crosthwait are now running a "Reduce-While You-Wait CFor-Your-Hair-To-Dye-Or-Dry!J Department." They ought to know. Best customers are Dorothea Leys and Leona Yates, who must weigh 98 pounds each, by this time!! I picked up a paper and read where Marjorie Oll- phant finally went into the business of offering her popular- ity secret to every girl in the United States. Her ad read as follows: "For sale: books telling about my sure-fire line. Can be easily altered to fit blonde, brunette, or redhead. Well-used, but still good." Prominent in Washington, D. C. are Loretta York, Kath- leen Williams, and Faye Williams, who are the only three Women senators. Their latest bill is the "WXYZ Affair" which had to do with the reversal of the present day alpha- betical seating arrangements. Kathleen, Loretta, and Faye agree that they never could hear a thing because their names begin with the last letters of the alphabet. I stopped in a drug store for a cool drink and looked up to see that this was Rudolph Hutchins pharmacy I had heard so much about! Another old friend, Travis Heron was helping Rudolph, and Eulela lobe was tending to the feminine interests of the store. Looking over their maga- zines, I saw an interesting picture which caused me to read within where the regular 4-H Club had recently gained an extra H or 2 and now the Club is called 7-H be- Page Fifty-nine X cause George Ellis, who is the newly appointed president of the organization, has put his progressive program into use, and you all remember how progressive George was when he was senior class president '4l. On the back of another I recognized Louise I.uckey's picture. Louise, liv- ing up to her name, can now be seen on any magazine cover advertising "Luckies 2 to l." Coming out of the drugstore I decided for a bit of relaxa- tion I would drop in the fashionable "Palace de la Savoir" and came face to face with Crawford Rogers who, after working his way up from third usher, now owns the place. This theatre was recently completely done over by Iuanda Brady, successful interior decorator. The smiling face of Mary Cole greeted me from the ticket window and Cleo Nolls with his new uniform and shiny gold epaulets, showed me to my seat. To my surprise the picture showing was "Romeo and Iuliet" starring Estelle Maude Barnett and Roland Bumpass. Then flashed across the screen was an advertisement from the Solon of Senor Elmo and Monsieur Royce, or Elmo Veal and Royce Means who, on account of Elmo's ability to wave hair perfectly and Royce's beauti- ful golden locks, have collaborated and are doing a profit- able business in hair-dressing. Unable to hear the movie clearly because of q heqged argument behind me I turned around to see Kirk Dyer, who is now a successful lawyer in the firm of Dyer, Dyer, Dyer, and Son, and David Bostwick still debating the same old issue fincidentally, I never quite understood what it wasll. After the movie I strolled along the street and noticed the Theatre where I had heard Robert "Boogie-Woogie" Mobley and his Bugle-Woogie Boys oi Co. O, which in- cludes limmy Collins and his trombone and features the low-down rhythms of Myrtle Stamps and her typewriter, express their musical thoughts. Myrtle beats out their eight to the bar as an excuse to keep time until the group can afford Fred Stayton's newest price--52.00 a beat! I had a short conversation with Mr. Mobley and inquired about some other old friends I hadn't run across, as yet. It seems that Edwin Ewell, who used to be the leading spirit of all "Y" dances back in Ardmore in '4l, has retreated to his secluded cavern, where he leads the peaceful life of a hermit. Blood brothers of the cause are Charles Bigbie, Ralph Collins, and lames Crowe, who cheats oc- casionally by sending up smoke signals to Nancy. This group is giving Andrew Iackson's "Hermitage" a run for its money.

Having outsung the other two members of the Barbershop quartette, they are presenting their perfected arrangement of "Bei Mier Bis Du Shane." Agree Bob and Bill: "All we are today we owe to Mrs. Rawlins." Later, while having my dinner, I heard a radio newscast which gave me information on some more familiar per- sons.

Walking out into the street again I noticed tar from the maddening crowd, a cozy retreat above the door of which those all-too-true words were hung: "Abandon hope: all ye who enter here," or, "This will do until the real thing comes along!" As you might have guessed by the cap- tion, this is the restful haunt of such ex-charmers as Mar- garet Ryan, Elizabeth Merrick, leanne I-licks, and owners of the Bachelor Girls' Home, Carol Risser and Mary Louise Suggs. Later, as I was wearily wending my way homewqrdl the strains oi the latest hit tunes floated through the air and I K saw they were coming from that swankie night spot on its opening night---"Iamie's loint" where Roy Gray and his "l-las-A-Coma" orchestra were featured with Helen Williams and Pearl Wagner as vocalists. Naturally, I wanted to see my old friends again so I went in and imagine my sur- prise when Katherine Rainwater checked my hat. I was still more amazed, however, when Robert McCrory, head waiter, showed me to my table. The floor show had already begun and the Hartnitt Sisters had just finished an acrobatic number as the Love Duet came hurtling toward me in the midst ot their original version of the La Conga. Next, in contrast to this modern number, Edona Mae Ful- lingim and Lencious Courcier did an old-fashioned version of "Put Your Little Foot."
