A senior climbed the steps of A. ll. S, for the l.ist time as a student of
its capable professors, lt seemed strange that he'd noi be hearing Mrs, Black
say, "It you can't act like the rest ot' the students' Miss Macs well-do
veloped "Sh-h-h-h" was becoming h.ibitu.il, too. Miss Bow wall-:ed the aisles
as usual and Miss Rece was still telling him that "the seats are made to sit in."
The senior gave his farewell address in Mrs, lluschs speech class and recited
the last bit ot' Chauter for Mrs. M.idden. Since his sophomore year, a senior
'had come to realize the real friendship found in every te.icl1er's companion-
ship and he knows now how much they had truly counted in his life. He was
leaving the old building as Mr. Young talled out "Take it easy, you Agate-
headfu A couple of tears sprang up from somewhere.
A junior sat in Mr. Byrd's class Ending it hard to believe that she had
adequately comprehended enough of the subject matter in "Chemistry for
Elementary Schools" to have completed the course. And Latin---woe! Only
one more day with Mrs. Woll't- and Hamo, amas, amat" or Mrs. Schenk's non-
chalant "Cierran los Libros." That American literature from Mrs. Arnold
had been an interesting course was proved by the way our junior had so thor-
oughly enjoyed "Seventeen," "Vogue," and "Movie Story," hidden under her
notebook in Mrs. Lawrenees chorus. Biology with Mr. Goins fall about hex-
apods and atmospheric pressurej would be over too. Mrs. Oliver wouldnt be
burdened next year with this junior whose Algebra II grades were up to par.
Gollyf just think'-soon a senior.

Ardmore supplied about two thousand young men and women to the
armed services during World Vifar II. Many of these people went into
service as boys and girls and came out mature men and women. The prob-
lem of readjustment to civilian life was tremendous, and the Veterans Ad-
ministration realizing this, secured the help ofthe public schools throughout
the country to assist in training veterans in the various trades and pro-
The Ardmore Veterans On-the-job Training Program began formally
in March, 1946, classroom instruction began and by january 1, 1947, more
than 500 students had taken courses of trainingtrelated to their respective
occupations. Each person enrolled in the program is required to attend
related classroom instruction for at least 150 hours a year in order to remain
eligible for benefits under the G. I. Bill of Rights.
During the period of training the veteran must maintain a satisfactory
standard both on the job as well as in the classroom. As his skills on the
job are developed, his salary or wages are increased by his employer, while
at the same time the subsistence allowance from the Veterans Administration
is reduced. Wlien the training is completed, the employer pays the full pay
of a skilled employee and the obligation of the Veterans Administration is
Classroom instruction has been given in the following subjects: Ac-
counting, Agriculture, Auto Mechanics, Bookkeeping, Business Administra-
tion, Business Law, Business Mathematics, Cabinet Making, Commercial Art,
General Insurance, Mechanical Drawing, Salesmanship and Typing.
Forty-eight men are enrolled in Vocational Agriculture. These men
represent a cross-section of farmers from the east half of Carter county.
Such varied phases of Agriculture as Livestock Production, Poultry, Fruit
and Vegetables, Field Crops, Feed Crops, Soil Conservation and Ranch
Management are emphasized during the four-year course.

THE ATIUNAL HONOR SOCIETY
These students have attained one of the highest honors in Ardmore High School, that of being named to
the National Honor Society which includes the upper ten percent of the Senior Class. Seven of these were select-
ed at the end of their junior year.
At the first meeting of the year, it was decided that in the spring when the other seniors and the top five
percent of the junior Class become members, the society will honor the boy and girl of the Sophomore Class having
the highest scholastic rating.
The officers of the year were: President, Helen Herberg Vice-President. Don Atkinsg Secretary, jim Mc-
Murry. Others honored in their junior year were: Peggy Bonneau, Kenneth Prowant, Betty jo Renick, and joanne
Those elected in their senior year were: Georgia Boyer, Elizabeth Ciaylor, Beth Ann Pound, Melba Phipps,
Hellen Cleelt, Colene Shinn, Margaret Maher, Evelyn Halpin, Par Byrd, joan Scott, Memory Smith, Gene Ledbetter,
jack Hammett and jim Hill.
XY"hen Ardmore's chapter of the National Honor Society was organized
in 1926, Mrs. Lillian Schenk was selected as sponsor. For the past twenty-
one years she has faithfully held and expertly filled the duties of this posi-
tion. Her qualifications to lead these honor students are apparent in the
fact that she received the following scholastic honors while attending the
llniversity of Missouri: Phi Beta Kappa, Pi Lambda Theta. and Phi Alpha
Besides sponsoring this group, Mrs. Schenk teaches Spanish and Ameri-
can Literature. To prepare herself more adequately she spent the summer
of 1946 studying in Mexico. She would be an asset to any faculty and every
x 1 f
member of the National Honor Society appreciates her tireless leadership.

Headed by the President jim McMurry w1th V1cePres1dentI.l1zabeth Miller Secretary Elizabeth Dyer and
Parlnamentarxan Bill Shaner the Ardmore Student Council has taken care of all the details connected with electing
and balloting of class officers and the football and band queens Different commrttees on the Council made all the
arrangements for the flowers and other decoranons for the band and football beauties as well as those for the
No the Student Council has not been 1dle Perhaps the achievement to which the Council points with
greatest pr1de was the all school play Love ls Too Much Trouble also a poster contest adxernsing the play
was successfully sponsored Every one of IIS twenty three members has worked diligently Those members be

The Council has continued having a luncheon every six weeks with the junior High Student Council Alter
nately each Council took care of the decorations and the other of the program
The 1dea of the noonday programs ln the aud1tor1um every Wednesday originated one Tuesday afternoon
in room 201
From the proceeds of the all school play the Counc1l took a l1ttle tr1p to Shawnee last December 12 13 and
14th for the Federatron of Oklahoma Hrgh School Student Council convent1on Seventeen Ardmore Student Coun
cil members attended this convention but here s the real scoop our Counc1l was elected Prestdent of the Federation
for 1947 The convention w1ll be held at Ponca City next year and all members who attended the 1946 conven
IIOD are looking forward to that convent1on Also a generous gift was given to the Cnterxon from the proceeds of
the all school play
All of our 46 and 47 achievements would never have been possible if we had not had the continual push
and drive of Mrs. Nina Oliver our sponsor. Where does she get all of that energy? From Wheaties or vita-
mins ?Q She was the one who directed the all-school play which we can truly say was a success and helped to
make possible our trip to Shawnee. As Student Council members we can t imagine what we would do without
her! She is definitely the indispensable woman!

JUNIOR RYONlS AND ROTARlANS
An unusual record of high scholarship, leadership, and service is required of those senior students who are
selected to be junior Ryonis and Rotarians. The faculty selects those students who are not only outstanding

The D.A.R. Good Citizenship Award was presented to Georgia Boyer, straight A
senior. The award is based upon four character-building qualifications: dependability,
service, leadership, and patriotism. Georgia was chosen by the vote of the senior class
and the high school faculty.
THE NNUAL OITATORICAL C0 TEST
Carrier: Margaret Sullivan, First
Leff: Helen Herher, Second 1
Rfgflil: liabette Temerlin, Third
The orarion "The XVill to Peace" won for Margaret Sullivan of the Alunior Class the gold medal in the
fortyathird annual oratorical contest. Helen Herber, senior, with the oration. "l Am lnnocent of His Blood," and
sophomore Babette Tenierlin, with "The Unfinished TX'ork." placed second and third respectively. Also participat-
ing in this contest were senior lieth Ann Pound, junior jo Pat Graham, and sophomore Harold Butler. Alternates
were senior jim McMurry, junior Nelda Barnett and sophomore jo Clough.
Class spirit reached its peak with each class enthusiastically supporting its representatives with colorful
signs, pompoms and rousing yells. The three young mascots, Phillip lf. Riesen jr., joey Pruitt. and Dickie Kob-
dish, had no trouble in kissing the representatives but slight trouble in carrying the tall baskets of Howers to them.
ln these contests each participant is, in a sense, a winner. Only one gold medal is awarded. but each orator
wins not only recognition by his audience but he also gains self-confidence and poise.
This event originated in 1905 when students, parents and friends witnessed the lirst oratorical contest to be
held in the auditorium of Ardmore High School. Gathering interest and prestige through the years, this event
is truly the scliool's oldest and best-known tradition, '
The wish of the school is that throughout the coming years each contest will be as beneficial and successful
as the past forty-th ree have been.

XY-'e didn'r really believe "Love ls Too Much Trouble" fdid we, Bud ?jg and even Fritzi wholeheartedly
entered into the spirit of the play. W'ith Pete's steady support, Mac's good humor, and 'Henry's broken bones, we
proudly produced a masterpiece of perfectionf ?j under the super direction of Mrs. Nina Oliver.
Between pages H45 to 59" the various members of the cast beat a well-trodden path to the Tiger Shop,
hoping that Gayle and Elinor would make it back to the auditorium in time for their cues.
C. Cfs mis-quotations, Dottie's southern accent, jim's booming voice, Don's fur coat, Shirley's witty cyni-
cism, Babettes phobia for "atmosphere," and Scotts "How-do-you-do's" to unconscious women-all added up to
a lot of fun and what we thought was really a grand play.

At football games we have a great exhibition of the strange, strong force found in music. Yet, intensely
engrossed in the game before us, we are often unaware of this exciting impulse. The band is a faithful and de-
pendable part of every game. It is there each time and only its absence impresses us with its importance. There
is a drive and incentive in the stirring notes that reach the ears of the team out on the field. There is a lift and
thrill in the hearts of those watching the game. lmpulses such as these are of keen significance in the effort of
players to outpoinr the competitors, both play major roles in the drama of our team's winning or losing.
The band's faithful members rehearse long hours and walk weary miles learning the intricate formations
which lend color at the half-time. Our band plays for all the functions of the school where music is an important
item. It helps the town time after time and no assembly would be complete without the band to play out old faith-
ful, "Onward Ardmore."
Filling the position of director and conductor is our efficient, well trained and beloved Mr. Raymond Gab-
bard, who has lent his talents untiringly and has inspired the band to its present high standing among similar

"This Is Always" and "It I-lad to Be You."

One But You."
"I Love You For Sentimental Reasons" and "I'll See You in My Dreams" "Till The End of Time."
"That Old Black Magic" really has you when the band begins to swing as they so often do at assemblies,
noon programs, school functions, class elections QScott won. tool, and for the town in general. They have been a
very important part of schoo'l activity and social life.
The swing band under the direction of Mr, Raymond Gabbard was organized to give training and oppor-
tunities to those students who are interested in enlarging their musical abilities.
Can you imagine the tiniest boy in the group
to have the biggest wallop? Well, he does, when
he comes out with that deep bass. Why, of course,
i it is the "ALWAYS SMILINGH Doug Vernon.
Incidentally that high soprano, which is really

I love a football lad,
His smile gives me a buzz! 7
I love a football boy,
But a lot of good it does! A-A,
On the field he is a whiz
---As fast as he tan be!
But when it comes to social things
He's awfully slow with me.
Many times l've let him know
I'm interested in his kindg
He doesn't seem to understand
What I have in mind.
To him, I'm just another
Football crazy fan.
But still I End-
I love a football man!

MISS MUNCY RECE
We of 1947 have come to the end of our checkered career.
After tormenting grade school principals, we hnally came together as one adolescent congregation in the seventh grade. Ard-
more junior High held onto its plaster, strengthened its girders, and prepared to endure us for three long years. We made new
friends like Ruth Ann Hagen, johnny Head, and jim McMurry, we laughed at john Whittaker and counted Speck's freckles in awe.
Gene Hill joined us that year, and .the contingent of female students found new hope. We took over the south end of the 3rd floor
in the 8th grade, gained new students, namely Leach and Foy, met Miss Wariner Qwhom we've never forgotten, incidentallyj, wrote
enough notes to account for the paper shortage, and struggled on to our Freshman year. flt was really just the 9th grade but
Freshman sounded much betterji Then we abandoned our childish ways, stuck our bubble gum under the seats, and became be-
wildered Sophomores in a new, breath-taking realm.
Senior High heaved a great sigh as we roceeded to do the things customary for Sophomores. We didn't stand with our mouths
open long, but elected a Football Queen the tiiist thing! We'll never forget watching Scrugham come down the aisle first! The kids
in the gallery went wild! Before long our fellows could beat the biggest boys playing pool. Prater and Brewster got to be sharks
and the upper-classmen knew there was competition! P. S. That was also the year -that Miller found Herber.
As the mighty middle class our prestige increased. Cleek reigned as Football Queen and our own Helen Richerson was
selected by Earl Carrol as beauty queen of Ardmore High. We boosted Adele and Mike into the Oratorical Contest and almost car-
ried the auditorium home when Mike placed second. And the junior-Senior Prom! C. C. looked so adorable. Ken Bonds and
Melba Phipps became active members of our class, Elinor collected men, Pistol, Frank, and Floyd spent their time duck hunting,
Means and Grimm spent their time getting back into Miss Rece's class, and Bennie Kerr spent her time being agreeable. Miss Bishop
guided us through junior English and shared her Christian ideals.
At last we reached the zenith of our course. To Jim Hill we entrusted the presidency of our great class and the Seniors of
1947 stepped up to assume their dignities. Setting an unprecedented record, we elected Scott the third Football Queen from our
class an our hearts pranced every step with "Chev" as Band Queen. Mike, Yvonne, Chev, and Patty rivaled the sunbeams with
their "blond" locks. Our football boys proved their mettle on gridirons all over the state with our nine senior starters spark-plugging
the Tigers to the quarter-finals of the state play-off. Read made all-state with Grissom, Howie, and Cornell as alternates. An out-
standing record, brought to an abrupt' end by his 21st birthday, was made by Hershal fthe ladies call me "Killer"j Gilliam. "Peggy
Do" Landers gained recognition as the best football congratulator of the year-Eh Prater? jo led our yells for the third year ably
supported by Bill fm-o, m-o,-m-o-r-ej Case. Rosie Clover came home from the Marines to sit with Eleanor in the Auditorium.
So we leave history to turn to the future, and, frankly, we don't know whether to laugh or cry. lt's the friends we'll miss
most, the real genuine people like Evalyn Halpin, Ralph Parlier, Peg Dyerly, Wilcey Yates, and all the rest of the wonderful bunch
We're leaving in body, but the ole' spirit of '47 will hang around for posterity's perfect example.

Left to right: Dottie Cude, Vice-President, Ruby Day, Secretary-Treasurer, Ray David-
Our junior class is the smallest in number, but due to our accomplishments this fact is forgotten.
We have to thank each member of our class as an individual for making our class what it is!
Our members have done much to make this class outstanding, but had it not been for the reliable, never-failing leadership
of our sponsor, Mr. Wayne Byrd, we could have never accomplished so much. We are very grateful to you, Mr. Byrd, for the
class spirit, constant help, and good fun you have given us, your junior class of '47. We are truly thankful for your help, and shall
never forget you. QOf course, having had chemistry from you, some of us can never forget or forgive youlj
The story below is to represent an average member of our class. The characteristics of this boy we have depicted are typical
ones of this junior Class of 1947:
August 10, 1930, Mr. and Mrs. A. R. D'More announce the birth of their son, A. R. junior. junior, as we shall call him,
begins the process of growing up full of life, eager and open-minded.
During grammar school junior has as his best friend, a blonde, curly haired boy tstraight A, tooj, by the name of Doug
Then when junior goes to junior High he meets more people, new friends. He works hard in junior High for the American
Legion Award, but Mance Drummond and Margaret Sullivan obtain this award.
In Senior High, junior goes out for football but Ray, Nance, Hattensty, and Burris are the ones who place. Alas! junior
is left out!
But with hope still in his spirit he again tries his luck in a school event, race for class president. But Ray once again beats
him. Poor junior! !!
Now junior has fallen for a certain redhead in his class, Fritzi, who in '46 was his class representative for football queen as
well as band queen. junior realizes his chances are fruitless for Fritzi has eyes for but one. fNeed we mention names?j
junior later tries for the oratorical contest. fjunior is very determined at least!j But alas, alack! He doesn't even place in
the preliminaries. He does, however, have a first place winner from his class. Hurrah for Mickey!!!
Now junior has come in contact with two very ruthless characters who persuade him to skip 6th hour. These two could only
be jackie Thompson and Bill Lathrop, but along the way to the Sports Club fwhere so many girls are parked that the entrance is
completely blockedj he is overtaken by Ned Turner, our good Samaritan, who brings junior back to Miss Mac's study.
May 1946, junior is promoted. Oh happy day!
Now if I have led you to believe junior is an average student I regret it very much, for he is far above the average, for he is
a member of the junior Class of 1946 and '47. Lucky boy!
Next fall when junior starts to school he is very saddened over the fact that three of his previous teachers-Mr. Crockett,
Mr. Montgomery, and Miss Bishop--had sought new surroundings. But he is comforted with the acquiring of two new professors,
Mrs. Sheets and Mrs. Busch. He nds, also, that the pretty Miss Chathn has married.
He has some new classmates this year too-Mary Bodkin, Harry Brown, Pat Nance, C. C. Sewell, Betty Patterson, Karlene
Moore, and jo Westmoreland. This year junior again runs for class president. He campaigns, announces programs over the speaker,
and all is in order, but Davidson wins again. Will that boy, Ray, never give up?
One night at the first of the year, junior decides to go riding in Dic Howie's car with a few friends-Lathrop, Bo, Ray,
Gingy, and Dick, of course-and well.-need we say more, boys?
junior now has a crush on another girl, Sherma, who is representative from his class for football queen, but Sherma, too, has
eyes for only one, and this is not junior.
just as junior is about to forget girls, he meets Ora. But as soon as he gets ready to ask Ora for a date-she sails for japan!
So junior decides "Love Is Too Much Trouble" CPlug for Mrs. Oliver, starring Fritzi, Don Murphey, Dotty, and Shirley.j
So we leave junior. His heart is filled with optimism, characteristic of his class. He has one consolation-his junior class
of '47, is the best there is!!!!

We first explored the immense halls of grammar school! XVe were sad when our mommies tearfully kissed
us goodbye that first day and left us to the gentle mercies of the alphabet and the primer.
Our tender hearts were captivated by Donald jackson, the wolf QQ, Victor Peden, that dashing halfback,
and we swooned to the tune of "A Tisket A Tasket" crooned by Bobby Gordon.
Wide-eyed we stumbled up the steps of junior High and assembled for the first time as the class of '49,
In the 8th grade we limped home from "Teen Town" with our toes aching after trying to learn the basic
jitterbug steps. We were so proud at the first big dance when we gallantly, if not gracefully, romped through
the dances, bumping and jostling older couples, fully earning their looks of disgust, but we paid them back for
those looks when our class won the Bond Queen Contest, and crowned Ann Thompson queen. Their expression
quickly changed from disgust to distress as they realized how unqualified they were in comparison to this mighty
This is a big year in our lives for, as our parents smiled approvingly, we crept across the stage and grad-
uated from junior High. Only a few days before jo Clough and Harold Butler had been awarded the American
Legion award and Gayle Miller, Virginia Gazaway and Della Ruth Alexander walked off with the literary compo-
sition award, winning lst, 2nd, 3rd places respectively. We said goodbye to Mr. Price and all our junior High
This was the year boys began to get their cars for the hrst time, and we dashed about at the wild speed of
15 miles an hour,-the emergency brake on the whole time. QXVeren't we dating?j
At last our class reached Senior High, but this time there was no stumbling up the steps nor any fear on
our part, and the Seniors and juniors were paralyzed with terror, for they fully realized that nothing could de-
feat these Sophs, the largest class in school. Our football queen candidate was Babette Temetlin. The Sophomore
class includes those well known students of great scholarship, Joyce Nutting and jamie Hefley. We had two Sophs
in the cast ofthe all-school play, "Love Is Too Much Trouble," Babette Temerlin and Gayle Miller. We had three
Soph boys on the Tiger football squad, Leonard Rich, jim Wagoner, and Bob Milam, "': have two cheer leaders,
Joella Williamson and Quata Pickens. -
None of these accomplishments could have been attained without the leadership of our class sponsors, Mrs.
Sheets and Miss McClure who, with the aid of the class officers, have helped us to become the best class in school-

LEST WE FORGET
The photograph of the Hag raising on Mt Suribachi IS the greatest action picture to emerge from the second World War
This famous picture was snapped by yloe Rosenthal who was a war photographer during a battle engagement on a PBCIIIC Isle against
apanese Installations This hIstorIe picture depicting a gallant group of Marines raIsIng Old Glory on the crest of Mt Suribachi
was taken on the now Infamous Island of Iwo Ima The statuesque quality of the scene IS amazing and marselous To see those
cool etticient Marines raising our NatIonal Emblem over that enemy Island IS Inspiring and stimulating 'lhis picture IS so remark
and those unsung Marines did not hase the remotest Idea that they were being lfI1Pl'If1It.LI Into a permanent plaee In history It would
not be presumptuous to state that this picture aboxe all others that were taken during, the great eonflagration recently concluded will
continue to be famous and will be left to posterIty as one of the more pleasing momentoes of the second World War

You re lost without geometry
You need to know angles to Ioole at the sky
You gotta know circles to wase good bye
You can draw a square circle but
It has to be proved

A square IS a square and that s no lie

PREVUES OI- COMING ATT RACTIONS
Since the early twenties when Edison s talkies first came Into popular use mos IC goers have been plagued by a great fan
fare and an exciting werbal build up of a movie soon to be shown Always there IS the same song and dance Let me give an
example quote Abominable Pictures IS proud to announce the coming of Boredom starring Greta Grabdough and Swoon goon
Vance von Flynnburg to this theatre next week Sensational Stupendous' Thrilling' New York critics have acclaimed It the greatest
spine ehrller since Searfaee ' Dont dare mIss Boredom starting Sunday at the Flophouse Anytowns finest theater Unquote
So of course the house IS packed on Sunday night and only a few brave souls defy the harbingers warning by staying at
home Sometxmes the moxie Ierifies all expectations but this IS qu Ite as rare as the proverbial blue moon Now my Idea IS to pass
d U d th Grimm Act an average prevue would sound something like this
a law requiring absolute honesty In mosie a sertising n er e
for example Repulsive Pictures IS ashamed to present Its most unentertaming production since Mr Drip Revolting
Nauseatmg' Lousy' That s what Los Angeles critics are saying about Tull the Laundry Comes Home featuring Pierre Yeaboy
and peroxIde queen Yvonne de Cobboe Yes folks, It s terrible but If you havent anything to do next Sunday, please come
and help us break even As an added attraction, all loud dialogue and back ground music has been deleted so as not to annoy
sleeping patrons And now, with due apology for thIs rude Interruptxon, we continue with the main feature Thank you
Confronted with such a stnkmg diversion from the ordinary thousand of curious citizens would pack the Flophouse for the
full four days and It IS my guess that Anytown would demand a holdover or a re run Thxs would be a rather radical change, but as
the Republicans said In the last election, Things couldnt be worse
