On Ottolwer li, more than llllt Ardmore High
Sehool students pooled their talents, skill, and wit
to present tor the Ardmore pulwlit the setond annual
"Red Ifeather lfrolitsu. For two hours and tiitteen
minutes an audienee ot 1500 in Cixie Auditorium
watthed "our gang" pertiorm. Dale Branum Qahovej
diretted the aetors through a maze ot' turtains, ropes,
lights. haekdrops, and props, In the rehearsals and
backstage on opening night the actors gave him a few
headaches and some premature gray hair, hut as
they stepped into the limelight, they shed their eloak
of levity and performed like veterans. 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. The Sen-
iors hrought the tomie strips to life
with authentic tostumes. Also out-
standing were: Mickey Callahanis

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.

DELEGATES to GIRLS STATE for 1952
Oklahoma Girls' State, held on the campus of Oklahoma College for Women in
Chickasha, was established to promote interest in state government and in world affairs
Besides learning about the government, Girl Staters make many new and lasting
friends. 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
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
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.

The visual education department enriches AHS curriculum with vocational practice
and interest. Sixty films and 739 film strips now in the film library are available to
teachers for use in classroom instruction. In addition to school owned material, li to 30
films are rented each week, This year 6 new film strip projectors with 750 watt lights
were added to the equipment.

' and his well-coached, hard hitting linemen who made
Q - A 1 possible all gains this year. Mr. Butler has helped
V ,243 bring the Tigers into the limelight by his rough and
'74 tumble methods of coaching that have always pro-
Jgl' duced fierce linemen. The staff feels that Coach
r Butler is one of the best line coaches in the state.
Coach Bob Williams finished his first season
with the Tigers this year. Mr. Williams came here
after coaching two years at Sayre and has quickly
found a place in the hearts of all the gridmen with
his softspoken, understanding manner. The staff
hopes Bob will finish many more seasons at AHS.

When the junior class began to look over its members for suitable people to hold
offices, they did not have far to look, and they chose wisely. Witty, likable Ronald
was elected president and soon proved that, in addition to his executive ability, he
was quite talented at public speaking. Tall, blonde Ronnie with his friendly smile was
a pleasing choice in the Vice Presidents position. And who but pretty, fun-loving Sylvia
with her perpetual good nature and quick wit could have been a better Secretary? Our
excellent roster of officers added much to the success of our junior year. Others who
contributed to that success were our sponsors, Mr. Irby and Mrs. Shilling.
The juniors of '53 stormed the halls of AHS this year determined to show our
dear old Alma Mater the best tlass yet. In every aativity the juniors have shone
with a brilliance unsurpassed. Among the many juniors on the Tiger eleven were
Bolu, Warner and Franklin. jerry made an outstamling name for himself in debatc
and Mike was a familiar figure in the halls of AIIS and had a finger in many

Tommy Patterson was chosen as Sophomore class President because of his pleasing per-
sonality, enthusiasm, and theerful manner. 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

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.
