W? a aj 0. 6 xi Me Board of fdacaffon S Over three hundred years ago the iirst law in our country was passed establishing the great free public-school system which perhaps forms Americas greatest contribution to the field of education. Oi i xhla, mal 5Ci'0f-ii ousc , f X ' fx 0 This fine tradition, acknowledged as necessary to a democratic nation, continues to grow in strength and influence. Today unselfish groups of men and women throughout America give their time, energy, and thought to the advance- ment of the free school enterprise. In our city this responsibility has been accepted by the group of men pictured above, the Board of Education of the Ardmore City Schools. This small group, though known by only a few students in our school, is largely responsible for the smoothness with which our school has been' man- aged this past year. They have wisely selected our instructors, and they have efficiently handled the difiicult task of allotting the finance with which our school is pro- vided. This distribution of funds includes a generous gift to the Criterion Staff, which eliminates advertising that would otherwise appear in the yearbook. Because we realize that school provides the Ez. basis and shapes the ideals for our future lives, we ' J 4 "f'f! wish to offer our sincere gratitude to the members of our board for their unceasing efforts to improve our school and consequently to provide a broader i' -2 education for the youth of Ardmore I Q I4 ggi - iii A l .W s , n .- .,- ,.. .4- l ...L- ,, gs ff..-I 1' "' is! . ,. .,, ,.

What a lot of meaning that title carries, and what ' b ' kl to a lot of little familiar .memories the words "our superintendent" bring up, like Mr. Hann's walking ris y l ' h h' ' clas d hard between his teeth with his hands thrust deep into his pockets, and with that schoo wit is pipe pe , friendly nod to every student, or strolling casually down the corridors, picking up waste paper, or unexpectedly . . . . . . . h. I h. kin roaming into classrooms to bring us a tricky math problem or a bit of philosop ica t in g. Of urse eve one understands why the hall is conspicuously cleared of wandering students about one co , ry or two mornings a week--Mr. Hann is in the building! But seriously, Mr. Hann, we admire you for your fine disciplinary action, for we know it concerns our welfare. p And don't think we didn't appreciate those peppy talks during football season when you made our low spirits rise hopefully again for our Tigers. If everyone of us had the ardent enthusiasm you have for A. H. S., then our school spirit would know no bounds. The school, the staff, and especially the Seniors of '48 will remember you affectionately for a long time to come. Keep up the good work! Do you want to know who really does the work over in Mr. Hann's office? Why, who else but Miss Ruth Harris, secretary. Having served four years in this capacity, Miss Harris is well equipped to handle all the intricate little details of her type of job. Her work includes problems of finance, correspondence Cincoming and outgoing mailb, stencil cutting, mimeographing, and a thousand other necessary tasks. Even with all these many duties cramming her dayy Miss Harris is never baffled, but goes about her work coolly and efficiently, making speed. Although she usually does not have much contact with the students, they remember her for her wide, friendly smile. The mem- bers of the staff especially are her friends, because she, herself, edited the Criterion in 1939. To our friend, Mr. Murl H. Price, goes our thanks for stepping into the principalship of our high school ' at mid-term and filling it efficiently. By his ready f'u . attention to all details and his business-like approach to all problems he has demonstrated real merit During the few short months that he has been with us he has added to his increasing popularity by the splendid school spirit and enthusiasm he has shown Has co-operative attitude toward athletics probably developed from his fine athletic record on the track team in his college days With his adequate experience Mr Price is well equipped to handle the intricate work of managing Ardmore High School His cheerful personality and natural dignity influence his entire office staff Mrs Jones his secretary has been quoted as saying Hes firm but not the kind that makes a big noise ll Mrs E C jones that model of efficiency about whom the office machinery revolves faithfully serves as our school secretary She fills this capacity well with a competence that would be hard to surpass Her master mind can remember all the voluminous details of the at tendance records and can handle all the complicated matters of finance of our school Many long hours of tedious work make up her six day week We students know her as the agreeable lady behind the desk to whom we address our worried queries about unexcused tardies an nouncements over the speaker and the time of the next assembly The only grievance that anyone could ever hold against her is to be found in her calm disregard of the things that go through her mime ograph machine shell run those horrible tests iust as cheerfuly as the play programs la ,172 an, Q..

U.: Applied Art Sclu Math and Geometry industrial Arts Mechanical Drawing Chl,-ago Art During our three years of study in this institution of higher learning we have cultivated the qualities which seem so essential to those who would face the world bravely. For our consciousness of increasing maturity we thank the teachers of Ardmore High. As our school career comes to a close, we realize. at long last, that we, the students, have erred, and that these mortals, our teachers, are human. We are even somewhat remorseful as the time arrives to say goodbye to them. The fears and dread of some classes are gone from our minds, and in their stead respect and fond mem- ories are, present. The class of l48, as a whole and individually, wishes to express gratitude to each member of the faculty. To you we say "Thanks for the memories." L 'V .glee E. BAKER Engineer As a message of friendly farewell or as a parting gift, the following words of good wishes and thoughtful phrases, so characteristic of each individual teacher, are expressed by the faculty to the seniors of '48: Mr. Holloway "Good luck and happiness, always." Mr. Wylie "The road to success includes both work and play!" Mr. Gabbard "Be sharpg never be flat." Mr. Todd "A grand senior class-Good luck!" Mr. Beams "A word to the 'wise' is sufficient." Mr. Sturdevant "If you want to kill time, try working it to death." Mr. Altoin "I have nothing to say." Miss Smith "So long. Seniors, Successful Sailing!" Mr. Baker "Why, it's 70 !"

Inset: Mrs. Lillian Schenk, sponsor Contrary to populan definition, a member of the National Honor Society isn't necessarily brain" Calthough that straight "F" average won't get you far eitherj. Indeed, intellect alone isn't qualify one to the exalted position. Next on the list after scholarship come leadership, character, ani ideals toward which each member strives, and these are the qualities on which prospective members Students chosen from the upper 59? of their class in their junior year were: Camille Anderson, , Robert Cornell, Elizabeth Dyer, Shirley Geurkink, Fritzi Horn, Karleen Moore, Katherine Ann Nev I Seniors chosen this year from the upper 1022i of the class included: Millicent Clark, Betty Mance Drummond, Sherma Horton, Wayland jackson, Richard McCormick, Barbara Patterson, 1 Ellen Smith, Margaret Sullivan, Ned Turner. Oliicers for this year are: President, Shirley Geurkinkg Vice-President, Elizabeth Dyer, Treasurer, Camille Anderson, Reporter, Fritzi Horn. Members of the local chapter of the National Honor Society should certainly be able to principles of such a position, since their sponsor, Mrs. Lillian G.

JOE BUSCH Sponsor junior Class Left to Right: jim Biddick. President: Floydc-na Loughridge, Secretary-Treasurer: Bob Michael, Vice-President, Junior Victory Af Hand! . It is a well known fact that the Juniors of Ardmore High School are engaged in a great struggle withltheir deadly enemy, ignorance. Our powerful division of '49 easily rolled to the strategic point of Freshman Hill. Aided by the capture of the American Legion Awards by jo Clough and Harold Butler, we conquered it with few losses and forged the broad river dividing the battlefield of High School. Here under the command of General Biddick and his aide-de-camp, Col. Murphcy, we entered Sophomore Valley. There we met two 'competing divisions, older and more expe- rienced, who were amazed by our number, skill, and enthusiasm. Latin and Spanish pill boxes, biology barracks, and smoke screens in Home Ec. proved fatal to many of our well loved comrades. May they rest in peace. However, Milly Wilson. Mickey Burrell, Ethel Tyler, Merrel Bedford, and jerry Bridges moved in to reinforce our troops. Garland Pool was wounded by a sniper lurking in a Planegeome Tree. However, plasma was administered by Nurses 'fstraight A" Hefley. Nutting. and Fraley, and Pockets managed to survive. The battle was renewed in the second semester with mount- ing spirit. A commando raid led by Babette Temerlin won for the division of '49 il major foothold when she emerged among the winners of the oratorical contest. Many of our men were lost in the black mire of the battle of examinations. Nevertheless we managed to hold our band together and found ourselves at the foot of junior Ridge. Here General Biddick aided by his staff Col. Michael and Lt. Loughridge planned our new fall offensive. New troops moved up: among these were Nancy Hart, Kathryn Kilgore. Marie Calvery. Wilbur Adams. J. W. Burrows. Gary Nance, and Bill Swatzell. Early in the campaign Paschall. Gordon, Wag- oner. Hunt. Coulter, Ernst. Hunnicut, Worley. and Rich were given the Distinguished Service Cross for valiant action on the gridiron. Bob Milam was awarded the Purple Heart for the heroic sacrifice of his two front teeth while in action with the Capitol Hill Redskins. Pat Whitfield's morale was lifted highly and he was persuaded to keep on in the fight by Margaret Parker. We suffered from the loss of Lea Burrus, when she moved to Altus and sustained further loss when Marjorie Grider and Quata Pickens deserted us to move on to a sterner field of matrimony. A great advancement was made when the division of '49 was led to victory in the Battle of the All School Play Tickets by Virginia Gazaway. Gayle Miller also won a foothold by playing her part successfully in the All School Play. All the while joella Williamson and Dolores Gilliam lifted our spirits by their cheers and never failing pep. We are proud of our exploits on the high school battle field and thanks to the splendid guidance of our Commander- in-Chief Mrs. Busch, we have reached the summit of Junior Ridge. We know that the samedetermination and enthusiasm which won for us previous battles will carry us on with flying colors to capture Senior City.

Nelda are their names!"-"When you're up against the juniors, you're upside down!"-"Sophomores, sophomores, are we in it?" Thus. the 44th Annual Oratorical Contest began. The colorful decorations-the red and white polka-dots of the seniors. the blue and white fringe of the juniors, the numerous green and white streamers of the sophomores-created an intense feeling of anticipation in all who entered the high school auditorium on the night of February 20, 1948. After the chant- ing, yelling, and cheering of the separate classes, the actual contest was formally presented. The senior class was victorious again for the third Con- secutive time as Shirley Geurkink won the gold medal with the oration. "An Educated Person." "Thats America to Me" won the silver medal for Babette Temerlin of the junior class. The juniors received honors again when the bronze medal was given to Harold Butler for his deliverance of the "Communism and America." The other contestants in the final contest were Nelda Bar- nett, a senior, Patsy Brown and Lawrence Staples, both sopho- mores. The alternates for the speakers were: seniors, Louise Hunter and Betty Lois Brown: juniors, Gayle Miller and Jo Clough, sophomores, La Juana West and David Poe. 5, ?

Three of our group, Bill Martin, Ida Sutton, and Nancy Underwood, went to school early Cifl for only one nightj when they served as mascots of the senior, junior and sophomore classes respectively for the 1937 oratorical contest. We struggled through our A, B, C's and numbers, taking each higher grade in our stride, until at last we reached the zenith, our sixth year. How proud we were! As we ascended the broad steps of junior High for the first time, we prided ourselves on our intelligence, however, it didn't take the mighty freshmen long to deflate our ego. A few of us were rather disappointed when we realized that the assembly tickets which we had bought early to avoid the rush were unnecessary. To console ourselves we looked forward to the day when we too would reign supreme as ninth graders. During 1945-46 we struggled through the eighth grade. It was this year that we met Miss Warriner fWarJ and learned all about historyC?j. After a year that appeared never to end, we said goodbye to the eighth grade and hello to our freshman year. How could we forget this momentous year? The boys were always eager to taste the fine cooking- samples which the girls concocted in the home econ- omics departmentg however, Miss Carlock didn't regard our 'culinary-ability very hghly when she discovered that there was Bab-O in the flour. The Bab-O mixture 'which the boys consumed didn't appear to affect their athletic prowess because, paced by set-shot artist Carl Atkinson, they had one of the best basketball teams in Junior High history. 1946-47 seemed to drift by like aspring breeze and, before we knew it, Mary Fraley and Jack Geurkink had been presented the American Legion awards while Glenna Montgomery walked away with the first prize in the composition contest. After Sam Blackburn's graduation address, May 29, 1947, we jammed into the Y.W.C.A., where we danced and selected Hiram Walker and Betty Webb ma- new gb Inset: MISS f x, po Q50 1' is vu.,- as the popular boy and girl of our class. many of the boys got the family car for the first and we raced madly about town until the unthinkably late hour of 11:00. It wasn't too long before we were climbing the long flights of stairs into a new and different world. Turning the tables on the juniors and seniors, we startled everyone Ceven ourselvesj by our smooth rendition of the school song at the first assembly. Not only do we have quantity, but our quality is unsurpassed. Our organization showed up well the night that we took over the concession stands at the Ardmore-Ada football game. Although Bill Martin, Lawrence Staples, Buddy Riesen, Jack Spratt, and James Baxter nearly burst their lungs trying to per- suade people to buy their wares, the effort was not without reward because the sophomore sales exceeded those of the other two classes. Four Sophs, Nancy Underwood, Patsy Brown, Gene Morrell, and Bob Dennis acted in the all-school play, while Joe McBryde worked on the sound effects and Anne Labbait assisted with the scenery. Our peppy cheer leaders, Glenna Montgomery and Cathryn Bass, are always on the spot and ready to yell at the slightest opportunity. In the Home Economics Day program Mary Fraley was awarded first prize for outstanding work. Rex Sparger and Clyde Shaw made the football squad and jack Geurkink edged onto the basketball quintet. Wade Henry and his bugle call us to attention each morning preceding the flag salute. Pacing a class that has con- sistently had the greatest number on the honor roll are two straight-A students, Mary Fraley and Lawrence Staples. Two fine faculty names which will always stand out in the history of the 1947-48 sophomores are Miss Ethel McClure and Miss Gail McWilliams, who have worked together and with our class officers to make this the best class in school-a co-operative task in which they have admirably succeeded.

A pre-Christmas affair we like to remember was Wed- nesday, December 10. a big' day for the Home Economics department. On this date the department threw open its doors to declare "Open House" and to inaugurate the first Home Economics Day in Ardmore High School history. High school personnel, students, parents, and other interested persons were invited to view the.displays made by the Home Economics II, III, and Home Nursing classes. The entire plan was a cooperative one with all of the girls in Home Economics participating under the direc-tion of Mrs. Joe Busch, instructor. The displays carried out very well the department's motto, to teach practical Home Economics rather than frills. Guests were guided through the rooms which were dec- orated with flowers, candles, Santa Clause, a Christmas tree, and numerous other Christmas scenes. Christmas carols were played as the visitors viewed the displays. On exhibit were: a food value chart, a display of medical supplies needed in every home, and a chart of three breakfasts using various patients' diets by the Home Nursing class. The Home Ec. II girls were exhibiting infant's garments made during the second six weeks period. On display by the second year girls were dresses, skirts, blouses, and clothing for night wear. ar" ' Left' to Right: Elive Hunt, Rex Ann Pierce, Roberta Cox Louise Hunter fnot picturedj, Ruth Evans, Mona Rabu n, Spiced tea and cookies were served in the living room, a project by the Home Ec. III class. The Home Ec. III girls worked diligently the first six weeks to turn the small room between the sewing room and the kitchen into a living room. They put draperies on the windows. bought a rug, made a white shaggy throw-rug, refinished a divan, two chairs, and numerous small tables. To add to the attractiveness of the room, lamps were remodeled and placed at effective spots. The department also held its annual Christmas tea on December 19 in this room. After refreshments. guests were shown the new automatic washer and the new cooking stove in the kitchen. As a climax to end the Open House festival, a blue gabar- dine sports shirt made by the entire department was presented to Mr. Hall in appreciation for all he had done to make the day a success. The shirt was presented by three outstanding Home Economic students, Mary Fraley, Ann Smith, and Barbara Stoner. These girls in turn were presented awards for having outstanding work displayed. It is hoped that Home Economics "Open House" will be- come an annual event and eventually become a tradition to be enjoyed by students who shall follow after us.

Although the purpose of the council may not be clear to some students, its elfect on the school is more than generally known. The Student Council is composed of a representa- tive body of students chosen on the basis of a boy and a girl for each 25 students enrolled. They are elected to that oflice by their respective classes to serve as the link between the student body and the administration. Also the presidents of the three respective classes automatically become members of the council. As the link between the various elements in the school, the council has many duties. Its members con- duct all elections and are in charge of the coronation of the football queen and basketball sweetheart. A few projects to which this year's council points with pride are the new Student Directory, the production of the all-school play, "It's All in Your Head," and being the host to the district convention here in Ardmore. The student council member, as a representative of his class, has a personal duty of seeking better rela- tionship between the students and of being a champion of the rights of the students. The very capable president of this year's student council is Mickey Clark. Faced with the problems that go with the attendance of two conventions out of town, and conducting of the district convention in Ardmore, 1 il Mickey proved herself a real leader, and was an inspir- ation to every member in the completion of the various tasks accompanying these events. To Mrs. Nina Oliver, the sponsor of the student council, goes the real credit for much of the work done this year. It is clear that without her supervision, the council could not have functioned as it has. Here's to Mrs. Oliver, the largest contributor to the greatest year of the student council in A. H. S. Attention, girls! Victory again! For the first time in its history the Federation of Oklahoma High School Student Councils has had a feminine president! Natur- ally, it was an Ardmore girl--Shirley Geurkink. Her gavel bearing the colors of all schools that are mem- bers of the Federation has been on display on the bulletin board in the main hall. In preparation for the job, she presided last year at the Southeastern District Student Council Congress which was held in McAles- ter. As usual, Shirley polished off both tasks in the best A. H. S. traditions. The juniors scored a hit when a member of their class, Ann Thompson, represented Ardmore High School as the Secretary-Treasurer for the S.E.D.S.C.C. held here March 11, 12, and 13. She has attended many student council conferences and last year served as recording secretary for the local council. as fa ent oancf Away from Home Marking an all time high in student in- terest and enthusiasm, the Southern Associa- tion of Student Government convention in Corpus Christi, November 13, 14, 15, gave us much to be cherished and remembered. jerry Bridges and "Digger" Baxter did right well with the "Injun" talk, "Findum squaws in Corpus." The boys were quite sensational with their ten-gallon hats and cigars, too. The Belles of the Mexican Brew- Those boys wasted no time when they met Pat McCarty and Gayle Miller! Results: their first or- chids for the dinner-dance. Much to the Ardmore delegates delight and surprise, Bill Shaner was defi- nitely the dashing man-of-the-hour at the formal din- ner-dance on Friday night. Mrs. Oliver was perfectly exotic the night of that formal affair. Shirley Geurkink said she was glad to get home, but she seemed to fare very well with that gallant Virginian! Lawrence Staples came home a bigger flirt than ever, for he had lots of practice flirting with a cute little Corpus girl. Mr. Hall said he couldn't get off without his wife! He didn't fool us, thou h and now E 9 , Mrs. Hall, we know you are the source of his sunny disposition. The group could never forget Mrs. Clough's good humor throughout the entire trip. Jo Clough was the only one who came back all-wet, for it seems that she liked Corpus Bay so well she decided to stay in it. Weldon Saylor slept during the trip to Corpus, how- ever he was very much awake at the convention! Gene Paul Morrell was found to be Ardmore High School's Al jolson. Since we left Corpus at 6 A. M. on Sunday for our return trip and wanted to get home early, we didn't The Ardmore Student Council sent nineteen delegates as its representatives to the annual conven- tion of the Federation of Oklahdma High School Stu- dent Council which was held in Ponci City Dec. 11-12- 13. Shirley Geurkink presided as the state president. Robert Cornell gave the response to the welcome at the first general assembly of the convention. During the meeting the colors of schools represented were tied on the president's gavel, which has been on dis- play here in A. H. S. The theme of the convention, "Democracy or Prejudice," was studied by the delegates in discussior groups. The discussion entitled "What are the results of prejudice?" was led by Babette Temerlin of Ard- ery were Ida Sutton, Mary Beth Brown, and Martha Lacy! Were those little bottles of perfume you brought home? Peggy Raum, Babette Temer- lin, Mary Fraley, and Ann Thompson smuggled flowers across the border. David Poe and Jack Geurkink for- feited the trip to Mexico for an excit- ing "game" on Saturday. Ann Noble and Mickey Clark gave Lichenstein's big business. stop for church services-but young people really are reverent, and an inspiring devotional was led by Mick- ey Clark. The entire group participated in prayer and hymns. Our theme song coming back was "Memories, Memories," which we sang heartilyi Despite contrary propaganda, we were convinced that LSXMF T does not stand for "Lord, Save Me' F rom Texas," for we enjoyed every moment in that great state. An inter-state communications club gave the Post Office Department a thriving business for months after our return. Charter members were: Mance Drummond, Harold Butler, Joyce Hill, Elizabeth Dyer and Nancy Underwood. We'll never forget how excellently organized the city was, how diverse the discussions were, how busi- ness'-like the students were, and most of all, how bene- ficial it was to meet and exchan e ideas with g high school students from twelve southern states. Every student present truly saw Democracy at work amon 8 all the students from each of the schools. Many of the delegates met for the first time their Latin-Ameri- can friendsg and many had never come into direct con- tact with Chinese until they met and exchanged ideas with a number of them in discussion groups, and at the social functions. more. ln these groups the opinions of all schools were presented and discussed. Entertainment was available to all delegates, recreation was excellently provided with such facili- ties as an indoor swimming pool, basketball courts, etc. The music department of the Ponca City High School presented splendid numbers for the enjoy- ment ,of the visitors. Other entertainment such as plays and specialty acts were also appreciated. The business of the convention was concluded Saturday morning when the officers for the new year were elected. Mrs. Nina Oliver was chosen state sponsor and will accompany an Ardmore delegate and other Oklahoma students to the National Convention in Washington in June. l 1 5- -,-.-, -111 '-'A'-1' 1 I df' Cast of 'Irs All In Your Hen Q Seated, left to right: Carolyn Whitt, Betty Crowe, Ethel Tyler.

Student C'ounc17 Af Home "Better Schools-Better Activities-Better Citizens" was the theme of the twelfth annual Southeastern District Student Council Congress held here in Ard- more March 11, 12 and 13. The congress was at- tended by 119 student council representatives, 77 of which were from out of town. Mr. C. R. Van Nice, editor of the "School Acti- vities" magazine, Topeka, Kansas, was the principal speaker of the convention. He spoke at the first gen- eral assembly, which all of the students in Ardmore High School were privileged to attend, and held an open discussion for the council members in the after- noon. The Ardmore Council certainly showed their guests a good time. A dance, a banquet and a theater matinee were among the items planned for the dele- gates. Transportation and housing were provided by the citizens of Ardmore which the Ardmore Council greatly appreciated. ' S Ardmore held the position of Secretary-Treasurer for the district and was represented in that capacity by Ann Thompson, junior. Members of the Student Council for 1947-48 are: Senior: Berta Brown, Mickey Clark, Robert Cornell, Jim Clowe, Dotty Cude, Ray Davidson, Mance Drummond, Elizabeth Dyer, Shirley Geurkink, Joyce Hill, Dick Howie, Pat McCarty, Ann Noble, and Bill Shaner.

He has led the band in two "O.U. Band Days" winning 2nd prizes at both events. The members are agreed that as far as interest, ability, and appearance are concerned our own Bob Beane is tops. The officers of the band represent true democracy in band work. They are elected by the members during the last six weeks period of the preceeding year. They work with and are counseled by the director. The Captain, the Lieutenant, the Sergeant, the Corporals, the Librarian, and the Drum Major compose the seven members of the officers staff. The Drum Major is appointed by the director but he is voted on by the members of the band and must be accepted by 7570 majority. The basis of government is a Band Constitution which was drawn up by the officers of '41 and '42. Naturally some provisions have been changed and amended but, for the most part, the constitution has remained the same and has been frequently consulted.

The chorus, vested in their robes, presents annually the Christmas program of beautiful choruses and carols. The personnel consists of Shirley Man- ning, Karleen Moore, Mona Rabun, Joan Walker, Wanda Wilburn, Mary Frances Baker, Diann Buchanan, Madra Cowan, La Verne Goins, Elizabeth Jones, Joyce Meek, Sondra Wester, lst sopranosg Ethel Tyler, Patsy Brown, Janet Lane, Martha Lacy, Sally Magerkurth, Paula Oliver, Gloria Talkington, Doris Walker, Elaine Hulse, Billy Dean Alkire, 2nd sopranos, Laureen Burrell, Mary Atkins, Marie Calvery, Sherma Horton, Lorraine Johnson, Delores Murphey, Cecelia Sewell, Glenda Montgomery, La Juana West, Wanda Threlkeld, Imogene Williams, Altos. These young women have more than practice and ability to be proud of, they have interest. Certainly, this combination spells perfection. Proving that high school boys are extremely useful in other fields besides sports, the masculine marvels pictured on the follow- ing page have definitely established the Boys' Glee Club. They have worked hard and consistently to form this glee club. All of their practice has been done after school on regular meeting days, Tuesday and Thursday. They have willingly sacrificed their time to attend these practices. The personnel con- sists of J. W. Burrows, Bill Shaner, Wayland Jackson, tenors, Mance Drummond, Johnny Elmore, Jerry Young, Jimmy Mauldin, baritonesg Paul Miller, Joe McBryde, Bob Dennis, basses. Attempting to keep J. W. Burrows' mighty tenor down enough to hear the rest of the glee club, the boys had to start a "This isn't a solo" project. Jimmy Mavldin couldn't decide whether he was a bass or a tenor so a compromise was suggested. Meet Jimmy Mauldin - Baritone. Although this is the first year for this vocal unit, these young men have established it so well that it is sure to be demanded next year, and accepted as a regular part of the vocal department. It is said that "Music hath charm" and the Triple Trio verifies that well known statement. These nine young women have combined natural charm with hard work and practice to form one of the most celebrated vocal groups in our school. Ardmore High School students were first introduced to their artistry when they opened a senior assembly with the well known and beloved strains of "America the Beautiful" which they sang a capella. Words can not explain the pride that each student feels for this organization. Nor have they limited their talents to the school. They have appeared on programs for Kiwanis, Sr. Philharmonic, Jr. Phil- harmonic, Ryfmlsi and I-i0n'S Clubs, the Y- W- C- A-, the Methodist and Presbyterian churches, Washington School, Carter County's Teachers' Meeting, youth night at the First Christian Church, and The Student Council Convention. The group consists of Mary Frances Baker, Diann Buchanan, Karleen Moore, sopranos, Ethel Tyler, Gloria Talkington, Lorraine Johnson, second sopranosg Sherma Horton, Laureen Burrell, Cecelia Sewell, altos. We can not stress too strongly what these voices have come to mean to us for they have reached the heart of each student. Perfectly blended in close harmony, their voices have cheered us at some times, inspired us at others. Truly, the excellency of this organization will make these nine girls long remembered and appreciated by all who have had the pleasure of hearing them sing. Along with her various other duties as a civic leader, Mrs. Meredith Rawlins has managed to take on the supervision of vocal music in our high school, and has worked it into a group of very fine musicians, vocally and culturally. Because of her pleasant personality and natural afficiency Mrs. Rawlins has guided the music department through one of its most successful years. -Qt... z Q Qi? R 6 x 3225?
