They elowned, and danced, and played, and sang splendidly mueh to the relief of Iiranum and the pleasure ot' the audienee. Em-ceed hy Ronald Me- Neil, the show opened with a ehorus line and elosed with a spen- taeular danee and hlatk-out musical. The danees were planned and di- rected hy .Ieanine Cox. Highlight- ing tlie show were the class skits. The Sophomore-s presented a polit- ital rally with speethes hy all the major presidential tandidates. while the juniors went to Hollywood to procure some tine talent.

DELEGATES to BOYS' STATE for 1952 The purposes of the American Legion in creating and directing Boys' State are to pro- vide a means of giving practical instruction in the mechanics of government to boys of high school age, and to help inculcatc a deep sense of obligation, in each boy present, t0 his community, to his state, and to his nation. Since it has become a tradition in Ardmore for outstanding boys to be so honored, many students each spring hope to be selected as delegates. The Ardmore delegation at the 1952 session of Oklahoma Boys' State made their pre- sence known by their coyote yells and lusty cries of "Mark Trail" which served as an "intercom" system between buildings. The AHS boys stood in the limelight also as legislators and politicians as was characterized by Chapman's spirited race for governor. The boys added much to their knowledge of state and national government, formed many state-wide acquaintances, and enjoyed the general program which was profitable as well as entertaining. ?

Swimming, ping-pong, music, picnics and talent shows provide entertainment The Friday night of the Girls' State week is the night of the Girls' State-Boys' State dance which is usually the most enjoyed event of the entire session. The governors of Girls' State and Boys' State reign over this ball Girls' State succeeds in helping to train the young women of Oklahoma to be better informed on civic affairs. The girls who are chosen each year feel honored and always return home with a new civic pride for their city EE Presidential election is an important experience in the high school years of any student, and AHS students of 1952-53 took no chance of missing the fun connected with politics. Students discusssed the two platforms in class, campaigned for their favorite nominee, and rallied to the call of party prin- ciples. After registering in their class precincts, they enjoyed balloting on November 3. Most fun of all was the political rally staged by Miss Rece's American history classes. Stuffed-shirt politician Harry Todd quoted from the Gettys- burg Address and led the audience in the "Star Spangled Banner." Speakers jack Smith, Dugan Smithers, Bill Knight, and Barbara Massad represented civil rights, the veterans vote, labor, and women's rightsi Ronald McNeil and jerry Wayne Brown portrayed General Eisenhower and Gover- nor Stevenson in a skit touching present-day government administration. Mike Thomp- son, with the aid of his effective chart, gave a soap-box appeal urging everyone to vote. To think of politics, campaigns, or questions involving American history is to think of Miss Rece who planned and sponsored this rally. It proved to be one of the assemblies of 1952 in which students found most originality and fun.

Tall, blonde Ronnie with his friendly smile was a pleasing choice in the Vice Presidents position.

Tommy knows the necessity of ro-operation and endeavors to be an example of reliability as well as consistency. Sara Suggs, the compe- tent class Secretary has an amiable nature and ulent' of initiative. Possessin' these . . 5 . . l 5 . . 5 qualities, she proved to be a wise choice for her class. Although Sara is little in sta- ture, her enthusiasm is always boundless. Ben Stott, the Sophomore veep, is a familiar figure to the students and enjoys bounding gaily along the streets in his jeep. Ben enjoys all sports, but especially likes to try his hand at golf.
