To Murl H. Price, our principal and friend, the l95l edition ofthe Ardmore
High School Criterion is dedicated. We feel that he particularly belongs to us
since he has competently guided the "Class of 51" through the trials of Junior
High and has brought us to graduation after three years of High School. In
these six years, his wise iudgment and capable leadership have won the respect
and admiration of the entire student body.

BOARD OF EDUCATION
The direction of our Ardmore school system
by Superintendent George D. Hann is noteworthy
for its fairness and far-sightedness. He, together
with the Board of Education, has established a
policy for discipline which is effective yet not
The Board of Education consists of Dr. J. Hoyle
Carlock, Ralph Sullivan, Guy Givens, John Hen-
dricks, and Chester Franklin.
In their attempt to provide every child in the
community with an education that will equip him
for a happy, useful life, the board has recently
coped with renovating the Junior High, Lincoln
and Franklin schools. At thfe same time two grade
school auditoriums and a new Negro high school
are under construction.
In the near future they plan to completesthe
present work and to rebuild the Dunbar school
completely, meanwhile continuing the Life Adjust-
ment Education, a system to keep education on
a level with modern progress. Painting Junior and
Senior High Schools, repairing Waehington and
Jefferson grade schools, and erecting a new grade
school in the northwest are also included in their
future plans. '
Considering this record, it is easy to see why
we consider ourselves fortunate in being guided
by such a splendid group of experienced leaders.
As clerk for the Board of Edu-
cation, T. E. Garrison has compe-
tently handled the buying and
maintenance for the Ardmore
school system since 1936. Until
that time, the board had em-
ployed no ofticial business man-
ager. However, it is quite evident
that, due to the expansion in the
educational facilities, Mr. Garri-
son has become an essential part
of the administration, and he ad-
mirably performs the innumerable
duties of his position.
Our industrious superintendent,
George D. Hann, has capably
governed our schools for thirteen
years. During this period he has
constantly improved the educa-
tional facilities to keep pace with
progressive learning. As a result
of his untiring diligence, the Ard-
more school system is distin-
guished as one of the best edu-
cational organizations in Okla-
homa. That Mr. Hann is in love
with his work is apparent to all
who come in contact with him.

This year marks the 25th birthday of the AHS Student Council. From its very beginning the council has been a dominating
factor in school life. Not only does it serve the entire student body but for its members it provides training in student govern-
ment, democratic living, and future leadership. So important has the council become that it would be hard to imagine this high
school without the driving force of that industrious student organization.
Direction of the governing body in 1950-51 has been under the outstanding leadership of president Betsy Klein, aided by
vice-president Don Horne, secretary Eddi Rue McClanahan, corresponding secretary Mardy Steele, parliamentarian Barry Galt, ser-
geant-at-arms Nathan Geurkink, historian Mary Jo White, reporter Billie Rose Hensley, and budget chairman Betty Ann Maher.
These officers pictured above, with Nina Oliver, sponsor, compose the executive committee.
This year's council continued many of the activities and projects which had been originated in former years. Among these
are the conducting of all school elections, the arranging for all queens coronations, and the awarding of the service cup at
the end of each semester. Council proiects particularly enioyed by the student body are: the annual all-school picnic, the noon
movies, the hcmecoming football parade, and the all-school play.
The 1950-51 council has been responsible for the instigation of such proiects as: Frontier Day, which was a full day devoted
to western fun and frolic accompanied by a splendid student assembly and topped oft by an all-school party at the "Y." This
council also started a proiect of more democratic student elections by allowing candidates for the various student governmental
posts an opportunity to give short campaign speeches. A courteous aid to new students is the council-sponsored reception com-
mittee which greets all new arrivals, introduces them to their teachers, and generally makes them feel at home in AHS.
All council members greatly anticipate attending the various student council conventions that occur during the year. Not only
do these meetings prove to be educational but they provide fun and give the delegates an opportunity to meet boys and girls
from all over the district, state and nation. One of the highest honors that a member of our council can receive is to be selected
as a delegate to one of these conventions. Mardy Steele was Ardmore's capable representative at the 1950 National Convention
at Denver, Colorado. Southern Association delegates at Oklahoma City were Betty Dolman, Morgan McCullar, Mayre Bob Dobson,
Charles Combs, Betty Ann Maher, Eddi Rue McClanahan, Mardy Steele and Betsy Klein. The council also sent representatives to the
state and district conventions.
No "Council Story" is completely told without mention of the gracious and assuring leadership of Nina Oliver, sponsor. Not
only is she loved and respected by her local group but she has distinguished herself as an outstanding leader in district and state
student council work.

The Student Council could easily be called
the hardest working organization in Ardmore
High School. A hundred ond one iobs around
school are handled quickly and efficiently by
the members of this group. Often they re-
ceive little recognition for their work, but still
the Council goes on rendering service to the
entire student body.
Pictured here are some of the various com-
mittees and proiects of the Student Council.
ln the picture at the upper left are seen the
members of the election board conducting
one of the numerous school elections. The
members ore: Mardy Steele, chairman, Dale
Bronum, Jan Lovell, Mayre Bob Dobson, and
In the middle left is Nathan Geurkink,
president of the senior class, receiving the
Service Cup from Donald Horne, vice presi-
dent of the Student Council. Looking on is
Shirley Patterson, chairman of the assembly
In the lower left picture a group of new
students are being greeted by Betty Dolman,
chairman of the reception committee. The
new students are: .lerry Porterfield, Willie
Mae McGehee, David Davis, Winston Edding-
ton, Elouise Shoemaker, Darwin Caulfield,

Two young men in AHS claim the honor of having been present at school on time every day since 1939. These
two seniors holding twelve-year perfect attendance records are Bill Read and Ted Pylant.
Betty Ann Maher and Bob Mote represented the Ardmore seniors of '51 at the Oklahoma University Career
Conference. They were selected by the faculty on the basis of their citizenship and their potential interest in future
Twelve junior boys and four iunior girls have been selected by Ardmore civic clubs to attend the 1951 session
of Oklahoma Boys' and Girls' State - two programs designed to acquaint high school students with the fundamental
principles of state government. The entire program which includes seven days of intensive study in administrative
affairs is directed by the American Legion and Auxiliary. Possibly one of these fortunate students will be selected to
represent Oklahoma in Boys' or Girls' Nation, as have three citizens of AHS in the last few years.

A busy schedule kept the Ardmore High School band
hopping in 1950 and '51, Starting in September,
band members practiced every morning at eight
o'clock for formations to be used during the half-times
of the five home football games at Walker Stadium.
The band welcomed the chance to break the usual
school routine by accepting an invitation of the offi-
cials of the State Fair of Texas to attend the fair in
Dallas on October 14. Another memorable trip of
the year was made when the band iourneyed to Nor-
man to participate in Band Day on October 21.
In February the band began intensive practices for the
district music contest which is held in Durant every
Perhaps the most important undertaking of the year
was the annual May band concert in the Civic
Members of the band are grateful to their experienced
director, J. Raymond Gabbard, for helping them to
meet every date in their calendar successfully. Al-
though exacting in his demands on the young mu-
sicians, he is always warmhearted and congenial.
Above all, he exercises remarkable patience in dealing
with every student.

Though small, the girls' chorus makes up for its size in quality. They have made notable appearances in the Christmas operetta
and Easter program. A new type of singing group at AHS is the girls' sextet which was organized this year. The girls are also
members of the chorus. They sing o wide variety of songs and are popular entertainers at local events. Miss Susan Scallon is
their capable, young director.

"Sit down and shut up, Mardyl Put down that algebra,
Klein! Miss Ward! Find a Congressional record and get to
work! And if William will quit playing with the eraser
string, we'll start our debate today."
Such phrases of Coach Nancy Fry would greet any
visitor who looks in on second hour debate class, however,
despite the informality of the class it is still one of the
hardest working in the entire school. Months of prepara-
tion lay behind each of Miss Fry's debaters who enter a
tournament, for debate is not iust an oral discussion as
many may think but involves much reading research and
much practice before one becomes adept in this difficult
Among the most anticipated events of the year for our
AHS debaters is attendance at the various tournaments in
the state. Above appear some of our local Henry Clays
on their way to the Durant meet: Charles Combs, Jan
Lovell, Flavil Yeakley, William Chapman, Ruby Jo McMurray,
Jo Evelyn Michael, Norma Blakey, Doris Ward, Jena Vayve
Tuck, Alice Bartee, Mardy Steele, Betsy Klein, Coach Fry.
Our fondest recollections of these contests are those
easily digested cheese sandwiches, and Miss Fry's cheery
pep talks which always inflated our ego suHiciently for us
to meet any situation on the debate tioor. Miss Fry's phil-
asophy of hard work and self-confidence brought results
as one can witness in the picture at the left of Jena Vayve
Tuck and Doris Ward with their first trophy of the year.

ants were Barry Galt, Jena Vayve Tuck, and Jo Evelyn Michael.

540,000 worth of power tools and two experienced
M. M. Altom, B.S. from Oklahoma A. and M., and A. G.
Sturdevant, B.S. and M.S. from O.U., expertly supervise
the 400 adults and boys who are enrolled in the varied
shop courses. Their policy is to help the student as much
as possible but to avoid unnecessary bossing. Altom
bases his philosophy of education on his statement: "l
believe that every boy has 'a definite contribution to
make to society."
The extensive courses offer: woodworking, welding,
lelectric and acetylenel, machine shop, mechanical draw-
ing, sheet metal, electricity, pattern making, foundry,
bench metal, and farm shop. What is more, they have
plenty of the safest and best machines for these crafts.
Every eighth grade student is required to enroll for six
weeks in each of six of the above courses. This require-
ment makes it possible for a pupil to obtain a generalized
view of the vocational subiects, and to pursue the ones
to his liking.
Adults are offered access to the well-supervised and
fully equipped workshop for the astoundingly low cost
of 37 cents an hour. Many students, after graduating,
continue to increase their skill in day or night courses.

Ardmore's Audio-Visual center, which serves
all schools in the city system, is one ofthe best
equipped in the state. Each school is equipped
with one l6-mm proiector, one filmstrip pro-
jector, one opaque proiector and a record
player. Most schools also have radios and
wire or tape recorders.
Deposited at the Audio-Visual center are over
500 film strips and 52 motion pictures, which
are owned by the Ardmore city schools and
are used by teachers in their classrooms.
Usually each of the twelve grades sees at
least one film every week. These films are se-
cured from IO to 20 different outside sources.
Student proiectionists in iunior and senior high
school learn how to operate proiectors and to
splice and repair film. They meet once a week
to study materials and problems of projection.

One of the newest departments to be added to Ardmore's
public school system is the department of Special Education.
Designed to give personalized education to those students who
have speech and hearing difticulties, it is rapidly progressing
under the efficient leadership of Rose Kahn Solomon. By
skillful use of equipment which is now available, Mrs. Solomon
proceeds on the belief that "speech is not only communication,
it is the most useful instrument lor getting along with people.
It involves personality growth and development. These social-
izing etiects made possible by speech are basic."
In the picture above, Mrs, Solomon and Rae Rader demon-
strate a hearing test.
As another example of individualized instruction, the Home
Nursing class taught by Mrs. Busch is becoming more and
more popular. Practical and helpful, the course is divided
into .wo parts, Home Nursing and First Aid.
The Home Nursing division is sponsored by the Ardmore
chapter of the Red Cross and the girls who pass are qualified
to receive a Red Cross Home Nursing certihcate. Of the
seventeen girls enrolled in 1950-51, tour are considering nurs-
ing as their life work.

I "I I ,,,,.,9'.- commerce department which provides a student not only with training in handling personal
xrr".f,x Ll "nf 'ne
business affairs but also with practice in beginning a foundation for a possible profession
along that line in later life.
To obtain the fullest advantage from this type of education it is necessary for a student
to take four commerce courses: shorthand, typing, bookkeeping, and a combination of stenography and transcription.
The typing class under the direction of Miss Nancy Fry, who has been a member of the Ardmore faculty for four years, is an
excellent beginning on the road of commercial education. Students progress rapidly under her guidance, and by the end of the
year have gained an ability which will serve them well through their whole lite.
The remaining three courses are taught by Carl Weaver, a newcomer to the Ardmore high school faculty.' The first year of short-
hand lays the ground work for either an advanced commercial course or for use in taking notes in college.
The bookkeeping course offered in A.H.S. prepares one for budgeting his own business in later life or for further study in ac-
counting. No matter what profession a person enters, a knowledge of bookkeeping will always be to his advantage.
Stenography, a two hour course, includes typing, shorthand, and filing. To take stenography a student must have completed one
year of shorthand and one year of typing.
The entire department is popular with students, and congratulations are due the instructors of these courses for the fine iob being
done in aiding their high-schoolers to acquire such useful skills.

swers requests for aspirin, band-aids, Scotch tape, pen-
cils, string, scissors, ink, rubber bands, paper clips,
absentee pads, envelalpes, and use of the telephone.
She explains that she can not give excuses, that she
can change neither schedules nor ten dollar bills, and
that the office doesn't keep pins, alka-seltzer, or extra
copies of six-weeks' tests.
Believe it or not, the office assistants have other duties
besides answering questions. They spend a great deal
of time and many steps in running errands-the boy
to the bank, post office, or drugstore, and the girls all
over the school building, from gym to chemistry lab.

chief duty, of course, is to keep a record of each day's
absentees, but they also struggle with the tempera-
mental mimeograph machine, answer the telephone, try
to keep all office supplies neatly in their respective
places, and bring the mail from Mr. Hann's office.
Selected chiefly on the basis of dependability, the
office assistants also have to have a reasonably high
grade average. lt takes brains to climb all those stairs!

The first snow of winter brought

"Make way for the iuniors." We've got the smart-
est, peppiest, and best all-around students ever to hit
senior high. We've got brawn, brain, and beauty. To
mention a few in the brawn department, how about
Horace, Don Bahner, Don Awtry, Hinky, Bob, Johnny
and Jack Cavins? Our football and basketball would
be at a loss without these seven. Dick Bailey, Bill
Bogart, Sue, Jo Bette, and Dolly Sue are a few of our
