What fun, what troubles, cmd what romances we have had. Yes, the time has finally come when we
can say, "Those high school days are gone-butnot forgotten." 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
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.

Intelligent looking? I should say so. 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.
Advisor for the senior class is Miss Muncy Piece, who has for
three consecutive years held that position, and helped to
make all activities successful.

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
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!

This, Mr. Reader, is the Iournalism Staff of the l94l Criterion. Those
worn out looks are not from senior activities, not from national defense
problems, but rather from the saying "Lite beqins and ends in one year
of journalism." We do mean the "end" tor some twelve poor, care-
worn souls-those who have sacrificed their "youth" to the editing and

Above the roar of national defense and senior high activities a com-
pany of students drafted for work on the Criterion entered the journalism
room late in Ianuary 1941. Among those drafted were: Kennith
Frakes, Business Manager, Frances Ann Dunlap and Myrtle Stamps,
Assistants, Kirk Dyer, Advertising Manager, Ronald Housley and Dar-
rell Whitehurst, Assistants.
After many Weeks of soliciting advertisements the financial goal was
reached, thus these few emerged from a mental huddle with the finished
product, and on May 22 this staff, numbering 17, delivered the 1941
Criterions to 325 high school students.

Edited bi-monthly and on special occasions, the Tigerite has succeeded in furnishing up-to-the-
minute news and unusual feature entertainment this year to some six hundred students. 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,

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.

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

pectively, oi "Mademoise1le."

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.
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

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

On the front page in headlines I discovered Maurice Temer-
lin has at last captured the largest snake in captivity, and
Iohn Lucian Hoard and Charles Hale Parker, also big
game hunters in Africa, have just returned from their latest
expedition successful with the capture ot Thomas "Tarzan"
Norman, who years before on account of Mrs. Madden's
reporting his unexcused tardy and therefore causing him
to take all his exams, threw up his hands in despair and
fled to the dark continent to get away from it all.
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

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

it! Kenneth Boles made his debut into the Metropolitan
but hasn't sold any insurance, as yet!

Baker cmd his touring Model Secretarial Training Corps
were making a personal appearance in this city in a few
days. His secretaries are Mildred Adair, Ruth Iackson,
Ioyce Conger, Margaret Riddle, and Kathryn Leis who
openly admit that their training was tn good 'ole Ardmore
In the little white duplex adjoining the cute little mail
box marked "Murphy," I found that Kenneth had finally
"popped the question" and Doris Olmstead had said "yesl"
ln the other part of the duplex, were Dale Trotter, Ioe Wal-

"Bachelor's Bunkhouse, Inc.," and who keep the girls step-
ping, I hear.
Entering the Red Cross Building I noticed an advanced
branch, "Bund1es for Bartlesvi1le," which is under the
supervision of Elnora McMurry, Maidette Oakman, Mary
lane Wiles, and Evelyn Moore, four of Ardmore High
School prize seamstresses.
I heard that Ruth Curtis, after years of waiting, finally fell

has announced that she intends to change the title of the
candy bar slightly making it "Baby Ruth Curtis."
This being the opening night of Eva Marie Ogden's latest
hit "Oklahoma Purchase," I was the first one therel As
the time went on I noticed my old pals Ruth Phillips,
Gayle Rose Harvey, and Mona Ruth Frensley, attracting
customers by a large neon sign saying "Chewing Gum."
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.
As the floor show started, lights dimmed and everyone
settled down to enjoy the first showing oi "Oklahoma
Purchase." The world famous "Comets," a chorus includ-

Mary Cannon, cmd Bertie Edna Allen introduced the first
act with a song and dance number, "OhI You Nasty Man"
ia 1930 hit brought back in modern fashion by Glen El-
more, who always told Mrs. Rawlins he would, someday,
be a songwriter, or writer-overerlll Later I recognized the
beautiful show girls who paraded gorgeous costumes across
the stage to be none other than Reta Ruth Son, Mary lean
Sprekelmeyer, Emogene Dickerson, and Betty Io Vaughn.
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-
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. And still hoping against hope that I-Iedy

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
Later, as I was wearily wending my way homewqrdl the
strains oi the latest hit tunes floated through the air and I
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."
