The staff of the 1950 Criterion takes pride in ded
icating this book to the members of the senior class
because they, in their twelve years together, have at-
tempted to manifest a true spirit of modern chivalry
honesty courtesy and true sportsmanship It is our
hope that chivalry as it is portrayed in this book and
as it is practiced although sometlmes imperfectly by
the members of this class may stimulate in all stu
dents a desire to develop their own integrity gallantry
and nobility of purpose

George D. Hahn, Superintendent
To the Seniors of 1950:
This class has always been particularly interesting to me-something
special, so to speak. You and I both came into the Ardmore Schools at the
same time, September 1938. Certainly I must accept great responsibility
then for your educational progress. This I am happy to do. There will be
other classes with their own distinctive appeals, but none will ever replace
you. May you every one live long and prosper.

THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
Nation wide recognition is given to the National Honor Society and for this reason it is, in-
deed, a great honor to belong to so worthy an organization. Not only scholarship, but also leads
ership, character, and service are the qualifications influencing eligibility. Those who have merit-
ed election to membership are Ida Sutton, LaVerne Goins, Mary Fraley, Bill Martin, Weldon
Saylor, Elaine Hulse, Marilyn Cohenour, Maudellen Newman, elected in their junior year:
Phyllis Swartz, Charles McCollum, Eloize Bragg, Glenna Montgomery, Bob Cathey, jack
Geurkink, Ramon Awtrey, jane Cathey, Gene Paul Morrell, and Betty Webb, elected in their
Mrs. Lillian Schenk has competently led the National Honor Society since its organization
in 1926. Phi Beta Kappa, Pi Lambda Theta, and Phi Alpha Theta of the University of Missouri
are the scholastic honors which show her exceptional qualification for leading these honor stu-
dents. All students and faculty members admire her for her tireless efforts and wise guidance in
making the Ardmore chapter of the National Honor society mean what it does to those who are
chosen for it.
Faculty and students elected Betty Webb for the D. A. R. Citizenship Award. This award is
based on the characteristics of dependability, service, leadership, and above all patriotism. Betty
has a fine school record and demonstrates a real enthusiasm not only in scholarship but also in
many worthy organizations.
jack Geurkink and LaVerne Goins were chosen by the faculty to have the honor of attending
the Career Conference at Norman in early March. They heard helpful lectures from people who are
outstanding in various fields and are experts in setting forth the demands of their careers. jack
and LaVerne were feted and entertained along with other highschool students from over the state.

Corresponding Secretary Sergeant-at-arms District President State Vice-president
Council. For a queen to reign regally on a throne for only a few breath-taking moments involved many hours of
work by members of the council who made the thrones and planned all the ceremonies.
The all-school play, sponsored annually by the Student Council, was especially pleasing this year: "Fresh Air"
with its all-star cast included not only members of the council, but students from all three classes in the school.
The Student Activity room was completely re-decorated by the Council: and it was refurnished by members of
the faculty and by members of the organization, and promises to have many uses for the school in the years to come.
Proof of the Council's benevolence is offered in the form of checks it gave to the Pep club, in a typewriter for the
Activity room, in its pleas at Christmas for toys for underprivileged children, and in its benefit talent show to raise
funds for the March of Dimes.
Betsy Klein was vice-president of Oklahoma State Student Councils this year, and presided at the convention
at Madill in December. jack Geurkink was president of District Councils and presided at the ldabel meeting in
March. Don Oxford and Barry Galt attended the Southern Association of Student Government at Charleston. West
Virginia. Weldon Saylor was a representative to the National Council Meeting last june in Denver, Colorado.
This year the Student Council has been thoroughly active and serviceable. Its persistent and efficient leader, Ida
Sutton, has done her job conscientiously and commendably.
The members of the council extend to Mrs. Oliver thanks for assisting them in every way possible and always
working with the interest of the Council at heart.

Eddi Rue McClanahan, sophomore, won top honors at the forty-sixth annual oratorical contest, with Doris Ward
sophomore, winning the silver medal. Senior LaVerne Goins placed third to win the bronze medal.
Eddi Rue's oration was "The Promise of America," while the other winners spoke on "Golden Windows" and "For
the Bell Tolls."
Other finalists in the contest were Bob Dennis, senior, and Barry Galt and Carol White, juniors.
This year's contest was one of the best in that all classes exhibited sportsmanship in their class demonstrations, and the
spirit of rivalry did not surpass the feeling of friendliness.

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE JUNIORS AND SENIORS
Doubtless you regarded us as a strange species during our six year reign
at ward school But after coming into the 7th grade in September 46 and during
.41 our years in the 8th and 9th grades we looked forward to this day when we
would reach a high point in our school c re-er the privilege of becoming Sopho
mores You may scoff at our labeling it a privilege but we are endowed with
a fiery school spirit and a determination that carries us nowhere but to the top
You may as well stop kidding us about our motto Green but growing
b cause in senior high we re coming right on up the ladder much faster
perhaps than you think
Football was the game of the year and we know Ardmore High will long remember Sophomores judge Williams Gene
Williams Ronald Horne Horace Bailey and others who have already performed with credit on the gridiron Denny Mitchell
Sue Boucher Vice President Mary Bulard
Secretary Donald Horne President
and Al Ringer And in the manly art of wrestling that do or die spirit of Bob Bettes wins him admiration not only of his team
mates but of the entire student body
joy Cobb Doris Ward jan Lovell and Flavil Yeakley seem to be coming right on up in their acting and speaking of
interest in drama Barbara Lou Thomason showed what a sophomore can do when she topped the entire school in ticket selling
for the all school play
Our two pcppy cheerleaders joy Cobb and Kenna Hudson did a fine job of keeping up the morale of the athletes while
our class officers ktpt the executive side of the class popping Donald Horne makes a capable president and his assistants
vice president Sue Boucher and secretary Mary Bulard gather up loose ends for him
In the BIG sophomore event of the year the crowning of Marian Coffey as Miss Basketball of 1950 good sportsmanship
and graciousness were displayed by all three lovely sophs Marian joy and Carol Ann
Miss Ethel McClure our sponsor who has helped to indoctrinate us into the mysteries and Joys of highschool deserves our
thank for a Job quite well done
So jaunty Juniors and Digmfied Seniors you see by now tnat sophomores may have the last laugh and remember H
laughs best who laughs last'
Mary Louise oore
The members of the sophomore class affectronately devote their
portion of this Crrterron to the memory of their classmate whom they
enjoyed, admrred, and loved

ARDMORE OFFERS EXTENSIVE
For the first time in the history of its
public schools, Ardmore has been able to
offer to its junior and senior high students
a complete curriculum of applied shop
Each spring every boy considering a
shop course for the following year is offered
a list of 11 prospective courses to choose
from. These courses include: mechanical
drawing, electricity, pattern making, foun-
dry, hand woodworking, machine wood-
working, machine shop, sheet metal, arc
welding, acetylene welding and general
I , , ' 5 Y ,
t is to be understood that these courses 1, Q
are not offered to prepare a student for an I.. '
occupation but are designed to acquaint the '
student with this field of training. The only
required shop course is offered in the 8th
grade: for it is deemed advisable that every
student have at least one year of general
shop. This eighth grade shop course ac-
quaints the student with six of the above
mentioned. If the student desires to continue
with a curriculum of shop courses he takes
mechanical drawing in the ninth grade. S-f
Having a background of general shop and
mechanical drawing, the student is then
able to choose his last three years of study.
The Ardmore school system has shown
its interest in this sort of training by investing 5150.000 in a new Vocational Shop building and in machinery,
High school students are not the only persons who benefit from the shop program. Five adult classes number-
ing 105, one in cabinet-making of 20, and two Southeastern State Extension courses of 65 are also taught in the
new shop building: adding these adult classes to 150 junior high students and 120 senior high students, who also
take advantage of the shop, we find that a grand total of 460 persons individually use the shop building each week.
Instructors Maurice Altom, Arthur Sturdevant, Wayne Byrd. Charles Ham, Harold Speer and William C.
Stamper jr., are to be complimented for their untiring work in this department.

DAY-TO-DAY LIVING STRESSED IN HOME
Home Making as applied to Ardmore High
School home economics classes is an overall study
to help the girls train themselves to become better
homemakers for the future.
This year the schedule included two classes in
Home Economics I, two Home Economics II classes,
one Home Economics III class, and one Home Nurs-
ing class, or an enrollment of 97 girls. The course of
study in all classes is similar except that each year
the work is more advanced and in greater detail.
Clothing, from the most simple garment'to the most
advanced tailoring, is prepared for the Fashion Show
held in the spring.
Other outstanding features of this year were the
Christmas teas, planned and presented by each class,
luncheon, planned, prepared and served by each class
at the close of the foods work: and co-operating with
the Salvation Army by making clothes for 87 dolls
the army gave to underprivileged children at Christ-
mas. Prizes for the best-dressed dolls were given to
joyce Meek, Orlena Hillsberry and Pat Parmley.
Girls taking Home Economics III voted Home
Planning and Family Relationships most interesting
projects, while the Home Economics I and II chose
clothing as their favorite.
One of the most popular classes in High School
is always the Home Nursing class. It was smaller this
year but by no means less interesting. Outsiders
helped make it so interesting and educational. Mrs.
W. C. Sain, a registered nurse, sponsored by Red
Cross, and Miss Susan Scallon, the physical educa-
tion instructor of high school, devoted time to the
class. Mrs. Sain gave a three week's review by dem-
onstration in home nursing, while Miss Scallon
gave instructions in life saving.
