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. Sincerely, 4 I GEORGE D.

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 Senior year. 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.

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. ll x ,gr , , it 3 -A- " 4 A'A' 1, N43 ,Sv 'khx 1 79:2 , f , ,rr ' FRESH AIR CAST.: Standing left to right: Elaine Hulse, Gene Morrell, Bob Dennis, Doris Ward, jan Lovell. joy Cobb, Ida Sutton, Flavil Yeakley, David Poe, Mrs. Nina Oliver, Nancy Underwood, Dick Miley.

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. ix Y -I 1 , ,,' W-v YK X., 4' ' 1 2 rp...

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 metal. 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. -, S .ad 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. 51 BEDD Raymond Gabbard Bob Cathey Dlrector Drum Major if Duck M1ley Herb Huffman Captam Lieutenant The Prxde of Ardmore Hxgh' The Ardmore band has done much to deserve that txtle durmg a long and busy school term Under the dxrect1on of Raymond Gabbard the band has had an actxve and eventful year wlth trxps to contests football games and many hard practlce sessions Leadmg the band as they marched down the fleld at football games to the famxlxar strams of Salutatlon were Drum Major Bob Cathey and Band Queen Mary Ann Austm Twlrlers Patsy Heed Pat Brooks Eloxze Bragg and jane Cathey and majorettes Lyn Pebbles and Carolyn Conwell provxded extra eye lnterest to the Red and Whlte A H S Band had many chances to show off xts marchmg and playmg ablllty thxs year Band members went to football games at Pauls Valley and Durant Band Day at Dallas and Norman and contest at Durant Ardmore was represented m the fxrst Oklahoma All State Band by Phylhs Swartz and rn the Stlllwater Band Clxmc by Edwm Zellner Jack Locke and Dxck Mxley Many highschool band members also play m Ardmores Community Band These members are Harold Dlllard jack Locke David Ward Herb Huffman Ted Berryhxll Bllly Tom Nash Dick Mxley Edwm Zellner Phyllxs Swartz, john Holloway, uletus Brewer, and Bobby Brown These sessxons gxve hlghschool players many chances to benefxt by playmg wuth the more ex perxenced musxcuans The band has accomplmshed much thxs year but much of thus was due to the patlence and understandmg of a fme dxrector, Mr Gabbard 52 .49 ,Q 1 V, 'CM H!

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. in .JI Vx ff' ,1-f if CHEE F7 vw I L :OK fvj 'Q 7 X , 41 . Ajf .
