As America opens her door to
strangers from many lands, so the
American public school welcomes
all the children of all the people.
As democracy depends upon ed-
ucation, so freedom requires a
sense of obligation and liberty im-
poses a sense of responsibility.

6 xi Me Board of fdacaffon
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.
i xhla, mal 5Ci'0f-ii ousc
, f X '
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

Mr George D Hann-our school superintendent. 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
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
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

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."
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
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
Mr. Altoin "I have nothing to say."
Miss Smith "So long. Seniors, Successful Sailing!"
Mr. Baker "Why, it's 70 !"
'Tm expecting big things of you in the future."
"Alwa s b' "
"Congratulations and Best Wishes, Seniors!"
"You have passed the acid test."
"Be good and let who will be clever."
"Remember that faith overcomes fear."
"Remember-it is the empty wagon that
rattles the loudest."
"If you can't read, spell."
"Listen, read, and think."
"Do noble deeds, not dream them all day
"If a thing is worth doing, do it well."
Miss McWilliams "Live to the. fullest!"
Mrs. Rawlins "Keep music in your life."

1945 Our furst vuvud umpressuon was that of the upper class
men un our furst assembly lustenung for a faunt tune-our noble
efforts un A Song of Ardmore However our attempts were
soon more admurable and before long we took the lead Mr
Crocketts splendud vocabulary and unspurung teachung had
marked effect too We soon found ourselves engrossed un
Les Miserables We were never quute able to determune whether
ut was a French or Englush course un whuch we had enrolled A
very memorable occasuon was the nught of February 13 1945
Our valuant gurls un whute devoted the remaunder of the week
of the junuor Senuor prom found many of our sophomore gurls
peerung through the wundows of the Leguon Hut thunkung My
wull our day ever come? And too we couldnt help swellung
our chests wuth prude when Muckey Clark carrued off top honors
un the Oratorucal Contest guvung us the dustunctuon of beung one
of the two soph classes ever to have thus gloruous experuence
Our herouc efforts un shorthand when we became junuors
Cwhat a beautuful word'J were frequently munumuzed by Muss
Bows constant declaratuon Aunt no such anumal' One day
some of us were un great anxuety as to the cause of that buzzung
un the hall Delvxng unto the matter we found Cto our delughtj
that the manshortage had been allevuated somewhat by the
arruval of one Harry Brown That was the year un whuch we
concluded that Mr Hann and Mr Hall should express theur
enthusrasm and loyalty to the Tugers more notuceably so we
presented each of them with a brught red tue People were
really aware of the Junuors whereabouts when Dottue Cude had
an explosuon un the chemustry lab
Our fondest dreams came true un that year Margaret Sullu
van was vuctoruous wuth her sturrung oratuon People began to
wonder what else thus class was capable of accomplushung what
wuth beung the only class un the hustory of the school ever to
wun two years consecutuvely Certaunly everyone remembers
that sprung day when we met an attractuve brunette un the
hall-doubtless new to A H S After an about face we dus-
covered ut was none other but our own Sherma wuth carbon
on her golden locks. establlshung somethung of a precedent, as
she celebrated her furst annuversary by repeatung ut on March
12 1948 Our qualms about that Saturday date were greatly
relueved when we found that many of the older women flast
years senuor gurlsj had packed theur bags and gone away to
the noble unstututuons of hugher leamung, thus leavung a few
Our senuor class guves to posteruty such cosmopolutes as Ora
Bell who unhaled the pleasmg aroma of japanese lotus blos
soms and uncense whrle dwellung un the Oruent Robert Cavuns
and Robert Cornell who saw Gay Paree and Belguum on a
Scout pulgnmage Of course the porthole gave uts burdseye
vuew of Parusuan gauety after sundown Then too Dorothy
Moss saw many beautuful golden Calufornua sunsets fWe must
respect the Calufornua Chambers of Commerce and not men
tuon the fogj
Shall we ever forget such uncudents as Phulup Brodues callung
Mrs Madden Mrs Chaucer the mussung Buuck rungs and the
sudden unterest un jewelry bracelets un particular or john
Holladays Sux Lessons From Madame Mozunga and hus en
suung romantuc unterests9
We shall always smule to recall our Fred Astaures who
made such a remarkable showung un the Fall Frolucs Howie
male assembly whuch quute properly umpressed us Dont
thunk that the gurls were to be outshone however just look at
the lust of those whose present unclunatuons lean toward matru
mony Louuse Hunter Norma Balthrop Nelda Barnett, Pat
Greuder Ellen Smuth, Hazel Mauldun Mona Rabun, and Ro-
berta Cox Console yourselves, gurls, there us stull half a leap
We recall wuth smules the mad scramble for seats on chartered
buses to the out of town football games The senuors contru
buted greatly to the all school play Its All ln Your Head
Our talent turnout un thus productuon uncluded Sherma Lorenz
Margaret Mance Carolyn and Bob Beane The one act play
Whurlwund was consudered worthy of a trek to Durant, where
ut was guven an excellent ratung It was then taken to the state
tournament un Norman un Aprul wunnung excellent.
The new look was untroduced to our stately halls by
Muckey Clark jo Pat Graham Frutzu Hom and Pat McCarty
The Natuonal Echo day un the uournalusm class was one of much
hulanty when we read the creatuve efforts of other hugh schoolers
throughout Ameruca Other joyous days fat least for those
goungj were those of such educatuonal student councul tnps to
Corpus Chrustu and Ponca Cuty
The students of AHS presented Mr Hall wuth a watch
on Fnday February 20 1948 as an expressuon of our devotuon
and apprecuutuon of hus fauthful servuce As much as we re-
gretted hus leavung, we were happy and fortunate to have as
our new pnncxpal Mr Pruce a fnend of long standung, whose
excellent guudance and assustance we remembered from our
junuor hugh school days
It was thus same day that our class dud the unprecedented
we gave forth our thurd gold medal orator-e feat never before
accomplushed wuthun the 44 years of the annual presentatuon of
thus contest We were thrulled to see Shurley Geurkunk handed
As we leave these famuluar halls and rooms, we hope we have
set somethung of a standard for succeedung classes We realuze
that our departure us a commencement upon lufe and we are
grateful for that phase whuch was our hugh school career

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.

Converting seventy-two blank pages into a finished,
attractive yearbook was the task that confronted us on
September 1. However, we appointed small groups, each
of which had charge of some section of the book, and
dug right in.
This finished product, now neatly bound, which
serves you as a picture album, related history of the high
school, and autograph book, was the result of democratic
action which we thoroughly enjoyed.

"Shirley. 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

Sophomore Sampling: idents
In order to begin our quest for knowledge we
started off for grammar school one bright day in Sept-
ember, 1938. 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
f x, po Q50 1'
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
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
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

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.

The Student Council is the most active organ-
ization within the school. 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,
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.

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

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

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
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
school students from twelve southern states. Every
student present truly saw Democracy at work amon
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.

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-

The Drum Major symbolizes the true spirit of the marching band. He plans
all half-time activities during football season. Bob has fronted the organization
for two years now and has commanded the attention of all the spectators with
his excellent appearance. 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.

Proving that high school boys are extremely useful in other fields besides sports, the masculine marvels pictured on the follow-

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.

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.

A vital member of any team is the manager, an unsung hero
of any game. He is the one who keeps track of all equipment, car-
ries the first-aid kit with its handy bottle of merthiolate that. all
athletes love so well, and he is the general overseer of the little
things: he sees that nothing is forgotten or left behind.
Better managers haven't worried the girls or slept in Miss

With a new coach and seven returning
lettermen, only two of whom were from last
year's first team. the Tigers opened the 1947
season. Out of this material a fast, hard-hitting
team was molded, and though small the Tigers
packed a wallop that earned the respect of
some of the best teams in the state. The well-
trained Tigers survived a tough eight game
schedule with four wins and four losses.
.The backs who sparked'the Tiger attack
were: JIM WAGONER, an All District who
knows all the Tricksg JERRY NANCE, pro
from the Green Bay Packers outstanding in
ground gainingg LEONARD RICH, a half pint
broken field specialist: BOB MILAM, hard to
see if the grass was high but more than held
his own against the best: BOB READ, a quar-
terback, famous for a spectacular three yard
touchdown rung BOB HUNT, an apt guard who
played wingback most of the time: KEN HUN-
NICUTT, a pass throwing fullback who always
managed to keep his hair combedg and PAT
MURPHEY, couldn't keep away from football,
continued as manager after a bad injury.
The centers were: BO BURRIS, on the
ball almost all the time, naturallyg and DAN
COULTER, who showed the most improvement
during the season, never missed a trick.
Those gamboling guards were: RAY DA-
VIDSON, the pride of the senior class who com-
bines football with politics Cclass presidentjg
