LAWRENCE Attendance Supervisor The class of 1946 extends to Mr, George Hann genuine gratitude for his influence in making this yearbook possible. Also, for the "definitely persuasive" manner in which he has kept us in line, demanded punctuality and urged us to reach a higher scholastic standard, we express appreciation, If we, as a class, have made splendid development the last four years fand we feelingly believe we havel then we give credit where much credit is due and name our superin- tendent as one whose friendship we cherish and whose en- couragement we value. To the board of education go our thanks for their help- ful financial aid and their co-operative "go ahead" sign to the Criierion staff. Backed by such friendly assistance and moral support we hope that we have edited a book which will be remembered with pride. I . ,lie p i Q f f f 5 T. E.

This book is the diary of the greatest UQ class ever to make the halls of A.H.S. ring with cheers of achievement. The history of this group begins way back in 1933, when proud mamas beamingly dragged us to kindergarten teachers, each feeling assured that her young hopeful could master the fine arts of block building better than other tearful sufferers. No one was killed in the sand pile brawls fthanks to bandaidsj and so we marched confidently into the hrst grade. If you think Chaucer is hard, just remember our mighty struggles with that gem of thought twisters, the alphabet. Can't you recall the shaky knees when we first entered that sanctuary of fear, the principal's office, for playing "keeps" on the school ground, and the time behind the garage when, after being sworn to utmost secrecy, we daringly smoked our first grapevine fweren't we devils?j. Next we proudly carried our straight "A" grade cards Dj to jr. High where our class first was untied, I mean united. Catching on quickly we beat the upper classmen to the punch and bought the best assembly seats in the house. Presently we stumbled through our initial dance steps to the tune of "Blues in the Night" and "Chattanooga Choo Choo", and it was here that the girls first wore lip- stick-smeared over the bottom half of their faces. As ninth graders we sat proudly on the south side of the auditorium dur- ing assemblies but we were quickly demoted to the balcony again after Junior High graduation, where the girls wobhled across the stage in new high heels. Our mothers, now with more gray hair and less assurance, prompted us to greater heights. As lowly Sophs we took too much glory in the oratorical contest and, in the class fight that followed, we were quickly tied to tombstones by the jealous seniors. In our junior year a separate chapter in our diary is devoted to burr heads, when all the boys willingly UD sacrificed their curly locks. Here we had the honor, or at least claimed it, of starting a fad that swept the school like a tornado fleaving only a few untouched incidentallyj. Our now silver haired mothers sat quietly in the background saying "What next?" as we became seniors. As always, we walked off with honors and presented the best senior play in school this year. As you have probably guessed, this book is the record of the only perfect senior class in history fdefinition of history: period of time from 1945 to 19461. The class of 1946 unselfishly leaves this book to the classes of the future, so that they may strive for our high point of perfection! -DAN POLAND.

These have yet to read the inspiring saga of the junior class. The gathering of the clan began back in 1935. Ah, we remember well our scramble for graham crackers each morning at kindergarten. We were shrinking and timid our Hrst morning. Then for six years we explored the mysteries of the multiplication tables and the primer. When we graduated from ward school, our mothers tearfully cut off our baby curls and sent us out into the world. junior High seemed big and strange to us at first, but we soon got into the swim. ln the ninth grade Mr. Hall de- serted us for greener pastures in senior high. The next year we stormed the halls of high school and there was our old pal again. No sooner were we comfortably settled than we were aware of unfriendly looks being tossed our way by the junior and senior girls. Our femme fatales were capturing the hearts of too many upper classmen. We have the reputation of being the peppiest, "stickin' togetherest" class in school. We've produced the football queen for two years running and our rugged football heroes have been Tiger mainsprings. As our class has been united in the past, so it will be in the future. The juniors and sophs will be put in the shade by the seniors of '47! -jon: HENDRICKS lwi i L Firri Row: Cerisa Alderson, Gene Alex- ander, Eunice Arnold, Don Atkins, Clive Atkinson.

Our alma mater, thou art loyal, brave, and true, Her spirit guiding as we journey on, We'll always wear the red and white for old Ardmore. You may talk about your colleges, fair Harvard and old Yale, And all the universities whose banners brave the gale, The azure flag of Cambridge, and old Oxford's noble blue That fly in far-ol? England, o'er hearts so brave and true. From the sunny shores of Frisco to the distant Portland, Maine. Away off to the Philippines and away back home again- No college, university, or school can ever show, So brave, so true, so great a crew as students that we know.

Before all the glorious facts fade into the past we would like to record a few notes for posterity. The sophomores, for the second time in history, swept away lirst place honors in the oratorical contest when Mickey Clark was awarded the gold medal. Some sophomores were so happy that they wanted to jump down from the balcony to congratulate her but were fortunately restrained. Our sophomore football players boosted the morale of the bench-warmers and jack Brewster with his educated toe converted many an extra point. Fritzi 1 Dangerous Curvesj Horn was our soph football queen candidate. We could go on rhapsodizing about our favorite class for pages but we can no longer express ourselves in the com- mon medium of prose used by the juniors and seniors so we must break into poetry. Leave us face it- We wish that we could mention Each member in the class Ray Davidson is president The rest will have to pass But don't forget We've got the goods To be the class of classes Poor Juniors and poor Seniors! They can't hope to surpass us. -Susana HOKTON --nr I .ag .Q 10' 1 .. it Vt iam' w is -' aa if - ltifro ,Q X Q Af 3 if VN y ' if 'V 1 J I t vi" First Row: Bobbie Alexander, Camille Anderson, Fanna Lou Atkinson, Norma Balthrop, Nelda Faye Bar nett, Bobby Beane.

But Helen Richerson, Mary Lou Tumer, Wanda Taylor, Beth Ann Pound, and Martha Ann Pate-now these are rare discoveries indeed, for what is so rare as the discovery of beauty, beauty by the Earl Carroll verdict? Yes, just as Einstein is the authority on relativity, Deems Taylor on music, and Bill Stern on sports, so is Earl Carroll the last word on beauty. Nothing but the best of judges for the best of schools! With this the Criterion is proudly announcing the best kept secret of the year, the Beauty Queen.

Band, clad in the traditional red and white, marched through a very successful year in 1946 under the able leadership of Raymond Gabbard. At every home football game and at Pauls Valley and Durant the band was there spreading school spirit to the strains of "Onward Ardmore." One of the most unusual half-time features of the season was the band's performance on statehood day, when they paid a fine tribute to Oklahoma's sons and daughters at war. Assemblies throughout the year were enlivenecl by this fine con- tingent of musicians. Highlighting the year's activities was the annual Spring Concert during which the new- ly elected band queen is crowned and kissed by the drum major.

Members helped sell bonds for the Seventh War Loan and appeared at various churches and civic clubs. One of the Club's most historic performances was on the occasion of the school's radio debut. Especially beautiful was the Christmas program presented by the singers and broadcast over KVSO. The scriptural nativity theme was interwoven with Christmas hymns to produce a very lovely total ef- ect. In May as a climax to the year's activities an operetta, "Hollywood Extra," in two acts with music by Cadman and libretto by Brown was presented. All in all A.H.S. may well be proud of its outstanding Choral Club. Mixed Quartet LaNeave Woolverton Frank Bell jimy Brady Douglas Vernon Boys' Quartet QNot Picturedj Joe Sloan E. J.

Second place was captured by junior Beth Ann Pound who spoke on "The Will to Peace," Third place went to Carol Clough, senior, with her oration "Let There Be Light." Other participants in this oldest and most distinguished tradition at A.H.S. were Adele Rice, Margaret Sullivan, and Billie Maxine Crouch. This year's contest was accompanied by the traditional flurry of decorating, class yells, and the cus- tomary tense atmosphere. The seniors upset the poor little sophs no end by hooking on to their snake line, waving senior signs, but the sophomores avenged themselves by winning first place.

His hard-boiled, but friendly attitude won the boys' hearts and loyalties. He stirred up a fighting spirit that wouldn't give up. By his superior coaching year after year, Young has created from lightweight, green mate- rial some of the most outstanding teams in the state in both basketball and football. We feel that he merits a big blue ribbon on his fine record. Coach Young, even if rumors and offers of bigger and better jobs come your way, remember that Ardmore and A.H.S. know your real worth and will always appreciate yOU . The 1945 Ardmore High School Tigers went into the state semi-Hnal to climax one of the most successful seasons Ardmore has ever seen. Winning 10 out of I2 games our gridsters fought against overwhelming odds to be rated among the top Hve of the state. After tumbling Classen H944 State Champsj, the Tigers were finally toppled in the state race by Duncan by a heartbreaking score of 18-12. The Tigers had three men placed on the South's All State Team: Pat Cashman ftail backj, Lloyd fBudl Biddick fleft endj, and Don Leeman Ueft guardj. Pat Cashman, the team's spark-plug, placed on the first team. The seniors who saw service for the last time this year are Pat Cashman, E. J. Leverett, Lloyd Biddick, Don Leeman, james Gaylor, Gerald Ernst, john Plume, Fred Chapman, and Max Williamson. The players who are eligible for the next year's team are Gene Read, Bob Grissom, Bill Howie, Dan jones, Frank Cornell, james Cason, john Colvert, Dale Prater, jerry Nance, Bill Stringer, Donn Young, Ambert Hattensty, Ray Davidson, jack Brewster, Gene Hill.

Attending her were the runners-up-Senior Harryette Lowenstein and Sophomore Fritzi Horn. Escorting the three beautiful damsels were Charley Wliite, junior, Liener Temerlin, senior, and Doug Vernon, sophomore.

W. Wylie. Although the strong-hearted competitors were comparatively "green" to the sport, they worked with their aggressive coach constantly until they reached perfection. , The Tigers began their season at Durant on April 12 at the district meet and journeyed again to an invitational meet at Duncan. Winners from these meets entered the state meet at Norman. As we watched the distance races we found Arch Hill, Larry Lawrence, and Billy Cates running the mileg Gerald Ernst, Bill Bur- ton, john Head, Sam Hunt, Robert Butcher, and Bill Runge in the halfmile race. Those running the quarter mile as a dash were joe Ward, Don Leeman, james Gaylor, and E. J. Leverett. Those stirring the dust for 220 honors were james Gaylor, Don Leeman, joe Ward, and john Head. Into the 100 yd. sprint came E. J. Leverett, john Head and james Gaylor. The speedy mile relay team consisted of Don Leeman, james Gaylor, joe Ward, and E. J. Lever- ett. Gordon Rice and E. J. Leverett ran the 220 low-hurdles while Gerald Ernst, joe Ward, and Larry Lawrence competed in broad- jumping. Lawrence and Ernst also entered the high-jump.

SHOULD BE EXPANDED The demonstration of the school's physical education program on Friday night of last week should have had one important reaction on all who saw it. It should have impressed those present with the im- portance of physical health as a step in the production of the kind of citizens we will have to have in tomor- row's world. The youth of today faces the heaviest responsibility ever laid upon any generation in the history of this nation. Into their hands will be placed the muddled mess and tangled problems that we have created and allowed to be created. Educationally and culturally we are striding ahead and making the proper preparations for the handling of these problems in an effective manner. One can only hope we are making the same progress in the development of physical health which must be a part and parcel of the overall requirements of the super-citizen we will have to face the rough situations that seem to be inevitable in the years ahead. 9 i Election to the National Honor Society is reserved for outstanding students from the upper one-fourth of the senior class. Character, leadership, scholarship, and service are the points upon which students are selected. Service implies not only the big jobs-class officers and such, but the little unsung services that individual teachers remember. These eighteen represent the intelligentsia of the senior class and command the whole hearted esteem of the entire school. They are from left to right, ffront rowj: Paul Saylor, Don Leeman, Bruce Coplin, Liener Temerlin, Pat Cashman, joe Van Benton, lstandingl Marilyn Myers, Frances Bartee, Billie Maxine Crouch, Carol Clough, La Neave Woolverttmn, Dorothy Spearman, Gerald Ernst, Mrs. Lillian Schenk, sponsor, Fariss jones, Anita Berry, Melva jean Hall, Alma Halpin. .Sc.,,EJ-L! lfilffn THE NATIUNAL HUNUR SUGIETY . Students and faculty voted Anita Berry the senior girl rating highest in dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. She is the girl who is willing always to accept responsibility and has the initiative to carry it out. Her person- ality is winning because she is genuinely intrigued by life and has an un- selfish interest in family, school, and nation. She is to compete in the state D.A.R. Good Citizenship Pilgrimage. The award is an inspirational and edu- cational trip to Washington, D.C. THE STUDENT if ,. ft? C, f ,Q , G0 ll N Ti l l. T ' MRS. NTNA OLIVER IQAUL SAYLOR 5P0n50' President Student government at A.H.S. concerns itself not so much with matters of school policy as with school action. Under its supervision the football and band queen lovelies are crowned and the class orators presented with flowers. In fact, all arrangements for this annual oratorical event were handled this year by the council. In addition all balloting was directed by these student representatives. Friendship between junior and senior high was fostered when both councils met for lunch at the school cafeteria. Even Congressmen take time off to play and the council spent a hilarious evening roasting wieners at Lake Murr.1y and skating at Whittingtcmn Park on their annual party. For the past years the council has been guided by Mrs. Nina Oliver, whose sincere interest has considerably strength- ened the council. Olhcers for 1945-46 were Paul Saylor, president, Sam Hunt, vice-presidentg Edith Schiff, secretary, Elizabeth Gaylor, treasurerg Anita Berry, corresponding secretary, Nelda Barnett, sergeant-at-arms, Alma I-lalpin, chairman research com- mittee. Other members are Billie Maxine Crouch, Dorothy Spearman, Hellen Cleek, Peggy Dyerly, Elizabeth Miller, Dorothy Cude, Betty Renick, Colene Shinn, Shirley Geurkink, Fritzi Horn, Barbara Howard, Ann Noble, Liener Temerlin, Ann Clark, and Ray Davidson. lo 1 ' 'F JUNIUR RUTAHIANS AND JUNIUR HYUNIS One of the coveted honors conferred upon senior boys is being selected as junior member of the Rotary Club, one of Ardmore's leading civic groups.

'WETUYT . iz2aasamQh CREATIVE EFFURTS MORNING GLORIOUS Awake, glad heart! And as the spears of morning light Break through the clinging shield of night Stand forth! and laugh in triumph. Awake, my soul! And though she flee from mortal drear, Trap gossamer Love, and bring her here To dwell with me forever. Be joyous thou! In sparking laughter do arise, An brush the star-dust from your eyes, And bathe in morning's glory. -Barsy SMITH The Breath of the Gods An alien silence hung over the city. Ominous uncertainty was suggested by the low blackness of the cloudsg and the earth seemed unsheltered from the rayless night. Soon the stillness was disturbed by the stir and rustle of fallen leavesg a fussy little breeze had begim to blow. Then the shrubs and trees began to sway as the breeze turned into a heaving wind. Slowly, it became more apparent as it started groaning through the limbs of the trees, then hissing and moaning until it came on with a mighty thundering roar, screaming danger. Mercilessly it ripped through the city plundering like a thief in the night, shattering and scattering houses. Trees were split and thrown up with their roots, deforming the earth with deep rents. Furiously it whipped across the country side Spreading a wide path of destruction in its wake. The assault was brief and en ed as quickly as it had begun but the evidence of the cyclonic wind was there. Ardmore counted her tornado toll. -Liener Temerlin. In-Between Time I like March, when the blustering tag ends of winter are being softened by the hint of coming spring. I love to hike in the hills and one moming very early I walked in the Arbuckles which are themselves almost as old as spring. Years have worn them down-towering giants into comfortable foothills just right for a morning's stroll. The sun doesn't rise there, but pops over the horizon like a great golden ball bounced up from the nether regions. Trees which have slept like jaded performers during the night begin tostir and dance, nipped by the biting chill of a breeze that doesn't know spring is near. I fought the wind to climb a sunny slope and watched the sun cast sequins on the icy surface of the creek below. The surrounding hillsides fairly shouted, "It won't be long 'till spring will be here!" I threw myself on a patch of bare earth and felt its warm dryness through my sweater. Not for me the green lushness soon to cover this spot. I love nature in its in-between moods-the hour of preparation and waiting. As I lay on my stomach I could feel the gently caressing warmth of the sun on my back. A thril ran through my whole being-the indescribable delight of being young. -Carol Clough. Night Lying here, staring with sleepless eyes at the grotesque shadows mocking the wild dance of trees outside my windows, I wonder why mortals are bound to sleep in these most exciting of the twenty-four hours. At night, all the elements lose their earthliness and, touched by the enchanted wand of evening, becomex strangely alive and bewitching. Trees wave their slender, pliable branches as if directing the orchestra of the windsg bushes and tall grasses echo the refrain. Every sound stirs my imagination. The rustling of leaves becomes a company of lovely ladies waltzing by in billowing, taffeta gownsg the endless fiddling of the cricket, their accompaniment. The stars look down with never-ending pity on sleeping mortals who are wholly unaware of the world of enchantment and mystery that is born at the setting of the sun. llove night!

Tell me not in mournful numbers Classes are a place to dream, For the student's lost who slumbers, Where his face is clearly seen. Trig. is dull and English more so. Chemistry's a horrid word, But woe unto the slumbering torso When its snoring can be heard! Profs and teachers all remind us, Soon the fatal blow will fall, And, waking, we shall leave behind us Footprints to Detention Hall. -Betsy Smith Horses I Have Known A horse is a very peculiar creature. He is a quadruped mammal. This means that he breathes, and has four legs ftwo in front, and two in backj. There are various kinds of horses: Palomino, Roan, Pinto, Merry-go-round, and Hobby. There are also Horse Flies, "Hoarse" Voices, and ''Horses-of-a-different-color", besides Chemistry ponies, which don't have a thing to do with this essay, so I shall take them up later. f By later, I mean the next time I have a Chemistry exam.j The first horse with which I became well acquainted was a beautiful little dappled hobby horse. One day during a particularly wild ride, Hobby fell off the porch and broke a leg, so father was forced to shoot him. My three year old mind was inconsolable, and I couldn't bear to eat the strained spinach that was cooked up over my chopped up "kindling-wood-pal." At the tender age of sixteen I was introduced to a lovely little strawberry roan. We became very "close", after which more than my age was tender. In fact, I had to eat dinner off the mantel for six days. Still, with the help of ten tacks, a case of Casein glue, and a destroyer anchor, I learned to stick to a horse, and make him stop at railroad tracks. , Later that same year I had a terrifying time with a runaway merry- o-round, and I've been a little dizzy ever since. Due to my wealth of experience, I was asked to be in a Kentucky Derby, but I refused the honor, because I've always looked better in a Fedora. . -Betsy Smith. Fortitude For a Fortnight "Sylph-like," the magazine said. Then and there I decided to whittle down my female form divine into something not resemblin a barrage balloon. The nickname "Pudgy" had clung to me since those good old days when it was "so adorable" to be pink and plum, but here, I decided, was where it got the old heave-ho. I imagined myself strolling into Biology II some morning, slim and graceful. All the wolves would immediately abandon their dead cats and besiege me for dates. As it is, there is something much more intriguing about feline innards than there is about me. The magazine deceitfully offered "The Easy Way to Slenderness," so I cheerfully leaped into the first set of exercises. They were simple ones like this: Touch your left ear with your right foot ten times in succession. One-two! Another of these grim little torturers made Leander look like a piker. I swam fstretched out on the divanl 101 times across the Hel- lespont, battling treacherous innersprings all the way. Then fainting with hunger I rushed blindly to the icebox. Ah-ah! The magazine said no! I had somehow to stave off the pangs until dinner, when I would be permitted to devour a whole slice of toast and any scraps of lettuce that Snowhite, our pet rabbit, refused to eat. That night I discovered, stowed in my dresser drawer, a Hershey bar! A plain chocolate bar I might have resisted, but this one had almonds. Those beautiful, big almonds did it. I began leading a feverish double life-cabbage slaw for lunch and a furtive chocolate malt sipped hurriedly in a corner booth after school. I even went so far as to sneak off one day after only fifty times across the Hellespont! Finally after the two weeks suggested by my mentor, the charm magazine, I faced me in the mirror-me plus five extra pounds! - - - - Oh well, maybe men prefer the intellectual type after all. QI keep telling myself., -Carol Clough Miracle Materials If the advertisements now appearing in print have any influence on the young men of today, then heaven help us from the women of tomorrow! Why, what they have in store for us is worse than having a blind date with Cass Daley! According to a recent check up in one magazine alone I found more secret charms and magic powers advocated than the twelfth century beauticians ever dreamed of. In that day, however, the art was called witchcraft. Some females spend hours preparing for the "kill" in a lace where men fear to tread, the beauty parlor. It is here that all of the magical oils, lotions, war paint, trinkets, and beauty secrets are applied and, I must admit, that these prod- ucts are masterpieces as potent as DDT. What the demons of yesterday concocted with mummy dust, moor fog, and bat's blood to ward off evils has just been reversed with whale oil, alcohol, and flower petals into a beautifully bottled and bewitching liquid called perfume which seems to do the weirdest things to men. One particular type actually causes men, upon smelling this evil brew, to be lured into the den of some damsel. One might well guess that the name of this mixture is "Follow Me". But that is mild com- pared to the other fatal odors-"Risque" for the sophisticated debutante, "My Sin" for the maiden, "Tabu" for the spin- ster, and "Lilac" for the grandmother who still tries to hold on to grandpop. But the cruelest of them all is "Temptation" -that's for the teasers! No, women haven't changed a bit from the primitive. I will admit they have improvised but they still follow their age old motto "get your man!" -Liener Temerlin NX-1, .A '8 IK 3.. --Q., ,F ., J. , NE. Wu-nag ,,,f1'Ilg1u. ' f '5'-U-wigf,:E -was .-.J .

Marilyn Myers Our Criterion grew from nothing but the student's fervent hopes and the staff's willingness to put in long hours of hard work. Behind these finished pages are many little incidents that we who built this book will always remember- joan and Ann bogged down in a mass of rubber cement, pasting pictures-Sue running in from the bakery Qsixth hourj with fresh hot doughnuts for everyone-Carol wearing down two pencils in an hour writing copy. We had fun laughing at Snake's spelling and Don's reluctance to include the Capitol Hill heartbreaker in the sports section. Piece by piece this annual was brought to life-by David's tireless accurate typing, Maxine's beautiful script, Melva's endless trips to the photographer, and innumerable letters to "Dear Mr. Finney:". The Criterion is woven of the many threads of highschool life and is intended to represent every phase of it. For any section that has been overlooked or overrated the staff apologizes -also for any names omitted or misspelled and the other inevitable inadequacies of the book. To avoid such mistakes we have spent many weary hours reading proof. Southwestern Engraving Company has also devoted every energy to present you with a typographically perfect book. GLASS PRUPHECY In the editorial room of a large newspaper, "The Atomic Flash," the City Editor Dan Poland assigns to Reporter Betsy Smith the job of interviewing AHS graduates of '46 wherever they may be. Betsy steps into a gyro-cab to .begin her assignment. She has to share the cab with three people who turn out to be Maxine Frost, noted portrait painter, and Douglas Burris and John Todd, Wall street financiers fjust another word for glorified office boysj. Her search is well begun. She orders the lady driver, who by the way is Cynthia Sanders, to go to the offices of "Sparkle" fashion magazine, owned by Bill Henry. fHe still loves the womenl. On the way Reporter Smith happens to pass Phil Buck and his assistant, Bill Todd, driving their orange dog-catchers' helicopter. In the magazine's outer offices, she encounters a corps of secre' taries-Ramona Fry, Laverne Trotter, Lillian Wallace, and Ferrell Watson-all chewing Bill Boone's Better Bubble Gum. Famous photographer, Betty Wicker and her aide, Ollie Mae Meadows, dash through with their arms full of color plates, followed by Fashion Models Joan Burrus, Betty Dayton, Harryette Lowenstein, and Mary Lou Turner, clad in the latest spun-air fhubbalj creations. Betsy finally gets in to see Editor Ann Powledge, who is contacting her Paris representative, Norma Bodine, on her televiso-scope. She learns that Ann is giving a party that night for some of her old classmates and is invited to come. At her hostess' apartment Betsy meets skating stars Millie Brady, Mary Kaye Rabun, and Mary Tabor of Tommy Pearson's new show, "Up an' Atom Roller Follies of 1966". On leave from the 'Foreign Legion is Capitaine Boogar Clark with show girl cuties Sudie Cissell and Jorene Forbes hanging on his arm. In one corner Billie Maxine Crouch and Maurine Sanders, fresh from their Carnegie Hall debut, are pounding twin pianos with Marilyn Myers, "'The Golden Voice of Television," giving out on the vocal while playboys fstilllj Pat Cashman and Max Williamson listen raptly. Larry Lawrence is explaining his newly-invented electrically controlled super bowling ball-"lt Always Makes a Strike"- to Arch Hill and joe Ward, cham ion bowlers of Local Street Cleaners Union No. 1946. Looking a little tired and worn out, La Neave Woolverton, just back from her fifth trip to Reno, is deep in conference with home economics expert Melva Hall, who has just discovered a vitamin guaranteed to make gray hair disappear. La Neave feels she needs it. Billing and cooing on the terrace are Harriet Gardner and her handsome West Pointer husband. They'd better be careful because peeking around the corner is David Steed, the Walter Winch ell of all the gossip sheets, always on the lookout for new dirt. Gloria Hardy, famous nbvelist, reports that on her recent trip to South America she saw Bud Biddick and Carol Clough, hard working archeologists, di ing among the old ruins in Peru. Carol was doing the digging naturally, while Biddick furnished the brain work, :midi of course, by the latest volume on ancient history by Gerald Ernst. When Betsy has interviewed all the celebrities present, she decides to accompany a party of them to the "Dive In", classy dive run by Bill Burton, where the chief attraction is a sensational bubble dance by Susie Allen. During the act cigar girls, Anita Blalock, Doris Spearman and jane Elzey, do a booming business especially with mischievous tycoons like Joe Sloan and Artle Spencer and wealthy ranchers, Fred Chapman and Bill Runge, just in from the country. Looking on with disap roval are Dorothy Spearman, wife of the local preacher, and her social uplift committee, the Lily Whiters- Esther Antnrson, Muriel Easley and Bobbie june Davidson, welfare workers. What's this? Frances Butler, the prim little headmistress of ''Thorny-Hedge-on-the-Caddo'' enjoying a night at the "Dive In" and accompanied by heavy-weight prize fighter Cal Thomason at that! What would her aristocratic pupils think? Holding a blue-blooded confab are Millicent Wheat, socialite prominent in the "Back to Texas" movement, Countess Frances Bartee and Duchess Rita de Sprekelmeyer. QW: knew them when., Hovering over their table drinking in the regal atmosphere are Anita Berry, Alma Halpin, and Wanda Morehead- rincipal stockholders in the "Three Musketeers" Candy Bar Co. A spot of color is added by joe Van Benton, star model fbr the Hart, Schaffner and Zoot Clothiers. Having a good time relaxing from their strenuous travels are famed women hunters Mary jo Gordon, Darlene Lane, and Marie Yates. They have hunted polar bears in the Arctic, men in the Riviera, men in Rio, men in Zanzibar fneed we say more?j. At a corner table, weighed down by the affairs of state ls Governor Don Leeman accompanied ffor political reasons of course! by Wirtaine Franklin, mayor of Rainwater Springs. His Excellency is debating the question of pardoning his old school chum Harry Appleby, who has at last been sent up the river on that old charge of shooting Frank Sinatra by District Attorney Bruce Coplin. Chief witnesses for the prosecution were Sinatra's old cook Emma Fay Skinner and his hairdresser Mary Lou Chandler. Leaning on the bar, flushed with victory, conversing with bartenders Kenneth Day and Don Dillard, is lady wrestler Opal Williams, who has just won the Dogpatch style wrestling championship. The entire sports world seems to have gathered here. Mary Parlier, coach of the Podunk Panthers, exchanges chitchat with E. J. Uet- Propulsionj Leverett, who runs the mile in three seconds flat. In a secluded corner, movie hearthrob Liener Temerlin is talking shop with pin-up starlet Wanda McCarty until sud- denly she lets out a piercing sigh and falls fainting on the floor! The reason? Frankie Bell is pouring a torrid song hy jerry fHoagyj Carter into the mike. Dr. Herman Hunt bustles in to take over, followed by his ambulance driver Howard Kelley and starchy nurses Frances Long, Betty McLaird, Sudie Cornell and Virginia McLaughlin. On seeing the handsome doctor in his hospital whites, playgirls Peggy Woods, Mary Louise Woerz, and Ann Ebeling also faint. Following this there is a sli ht commotion when Thelma DeHart and Hellen Wallace, contented little housewives, come storming in to find their huiands and drag them home to the sinkfuls of dirty dishes. Society girl Jeannine Cox is crawling around look- ing for james Gaylor, noted temperance leader, whom she left stretched out under one of the tables the previous night. Reporter Smith with her nose for news scents a story in the serious faces of Federal Agent X-29 Uohn Plume's code namej and Paul Saylor, brilliant young head of Westinghouse. A grave problem has been brought to their attention by ex-F. B. I. spy Margaret Michael in an effort to reinstate herself. fShe was thrown out of the service for talking too much.l Two scientists from the research laboratories at Westinghouse, Fariss Jones and Charles Kistler, have stolen valuable equipment and discovered a new element with which they say they intend to destroy the world. In the opinion of noted psychiatrists, Evangeline Malott and Betty Spurlock, the two renegades have been suffering a delayed reaction from too many physics problems in their youth. Our reporter realizes that she is hot on the trail of an important scoop and decides to fly with Saylor and Plume to the mountain hideout of the mad scientists. After tipping headwaiter W. M. Brumley, hat check girls Inez and Louise Bartley, and Bill Cates, the doorman, they leave for the airport where Bill Stacy and Billy joe Sharp are waiting to fly them to their destination. They wear the special flying suits designed by Mildred Parker and Martha Richardson and drink a special "warm-up" concoction made by the Coady, Cummings, Cooner, and Cox Cocoa Corporation. All is now a race with time-Will they make it in time to prevent the utter demolition of the entire globe? Landing near the hideout they rush toward it. Plume is forced to dispose of guard Haskell Moore with his Flash Gordon ray gun and then suddenly, just as they reach the door of the laboratory--there is a blinding flash of light. They are too late. The great explosion has already begun. Betsy feels herself being whirled through blackest space into oblivion. When she comes to, she finds herself in a familiar place-the journalism room of AHS-racking her brains over a piece of Criterion copy .... Strange what the strenuous life of a senior will do to you. GLASS WILL Since the class of '46 is slightly ignorant in legal matters we shall omit the customary "forthwiths," "sound, mind, and body," and other long winded clauses and simply enumerate below the bequests we desire to leave behind us.

The honor of being the cutest, smartest, and only girl in physics, held by Ann Powledge, is left to Helen Herber. Melva Jean Hall leaves Miss Mac. with more grey hairs. The seniors as a class desire to bequeath the following to the juniors: With fiendish glee we leave Macbeth's dagger speech, eight verses of Gray's "ElegY," "Whan that Aprillwf' and the rest of our beloved poetry.
