Mr. Hann and the board members face every problem fairly, keep- ing in mind always the best interest ofthe student. The citizens of Ardmore can indeed be proud of the splendid work done by the Board of Education. Mr. Colvert, Mr. Sullivan, Mr, Givens, Mr. Hendricks, and Mr. Franklin, giving freely of their time and energy, have completed sev- eral valuable projects this year, including the building of the new practice held for the Physical Education Department and the estab- lishment and directing of the G. l. Night School for adult education. Our board members have supported us in every way possible in all our activities, We also wish to express our appreciation for their hnancial aid which has made this book possible. lf our hgh school reached the standard set by its Board of Education, we should have the finest school in Oklahoma.

S, for the 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, 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.

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- fessions 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 over, 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. ,f 'wr -,, 'pl' -ggmakw I1 -yrf. - . is 4 .34 "" Q ' ij xx ,lv V ' I Q5 , if ., - , R f T Q ' : XX V , 1 X - 1 - .- l . ..

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 Sullivan. 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 Theta. l 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. if' 05 5 I NQX A J 42 Seated Ie I In right 0 Westmoreland Vcra Englchardt B111 Shancr lim Mtlvlurri Elizabeth M1llcr oycc Nurting Ann Thompson Elizabeth Dyer Ylandnzg le I lo ugh!

I 1' 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.

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 musical organizations. 5,r.. - -.-., - 'Nj-'xt ' .xv 2 .-is -553, , ,j .g,,K... ,-.-X., ..

THE SWING BAND 'linger Awhilen for a "Sentimental journey" and while we're "Waiting for the Train to Come In" we'lI - watch "The Old Ltunplighterf' "XVe Strolled The Lane Together" as "Sweethearts" with "Stardust" in our eyes "Night and Day" for "This Is Always" and "It I-lad to Be You." "I Don't Know Why" "It's Been a Long, Long Time" "Since You Went Away" "Because" "There's No 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. BOYS OUARTET 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 tenor and tirst tenor at that, is none other than Bud Miller. It is said that redheads have quite a temper but our second tenor has been known to practice long hours fon "Sweetheart", without a whimper. He's our "NEVER BLUSHINGU Don Anderson. The tall lanky fellow with the burr haircut and with the heart that is really in his singing fex- cept the part that's in basketballj is baritone Win- ston Ruble. The quartet has had a very active year. They sang at the district teacher's meeting in Durant and have been the guests of the churches and Left la righl: Bud Miller, Don Anderson, Winston Ruble, Doug Vernon.

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 of them. We're leaving in body, but the ole' spirit of '47 will hang around for posterity's perfect example. ,-3 A1711 1, 741,04 : BILL HOWIE Au x, 1' CERISA ALDERSON GENE ALEYANDER DON ANDERSON!

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 Vernon. 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!!!! if .- I Zigi .f I i if-'.f""'1.,lX',x ff'-":f:3g??f14 W Anil' , . , .

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. 1957-42 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. 1943-1944 Wide-eyed we stumbled up the steps of junior High and assembled for the first time as the class of '49, 1944-1945 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 class. 1945-1946 Dear Diary: 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 teachers. 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 1946-1947 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- A x X- i ,f Q I .
