James W. Bruce
In his capacity as Administrative Assis-
tant, Mr. James Bruce sees that all
school policies are observed. As clerk
of the Board of Education, he is respon-
sible for all monies expended through-
out the school system. Under his super-
vision, the Junior-Senior High School
Cafeteria provides attractive and appe-
tizing meals as well as serving as a
center for extra-curricular recreation.
Mr. Bruce, who is also purchasing agent
for the schools, ingeniously makes the
dollar purchase twice its value. In all
these capacities he serves the Ardmore
High School system faithfully and well.

A vital part of Ardmore High School
is the audio-visual department. Mrs. Irene
McGoodwin, audio-visual co-ordinator, ad-
vises teachers in the selection of materials
such as books, films and filmstrips
for classroom use. She trains students to
operate the equipment for the teachers, for
civic clubs and other organizations out-
side of the school. ln doing this, Mrs.
McGoodwin performs a great service for
the classroom teacher and above all, for
the individual student.
Operating the tape recorder are Jerry
Robinson, Pat Slaughter and C h a r l e s
Teague. Learning the technicalities of film
projection are John Bowman, Bruce Loard.
Gary Stoner and Katy Leach. Thomas Vw'hit-

listen to his words encouraging us to
even greater achievements, we realize
the truth of his speaking. We are grate-
ful for this unerring guidance.
His understanding and tolerance to-
ward each individual make for an
ideal student-principal relationship.
A symbol of the highest fundamentals
of living, our principal, Mr. Murl H.

fluence in our lives.

The Educational Side
Stimulating our mental abilities as well as our
interest are the various mathematical courses
offered in our high school. Angles, polygons and
circles dance in our heads as Mrs. Nina Brum-
field, Mr. D. T. Goodin, and Mrs. Estaline Waters
familiarize us with the principles of Plane Geom-
etry. Mrs. Brumfield also teaches Solid Geometry,
Trigonometry and Algebra, which are the more
advanced mathematical courses.
For those with a commercial future in mind
Business Mathematics is taught by Mrs. Francis
An open house for the parents each s'pring

like windows and electrically lighted chandeliers

With a great splurge of energy and hard
work, students transform room 201 from an
ordinary classroom into a delightful display
showing the unique application of the principles
of lines, angles and forms. The mathematics fair,
in its eleventh consecutive year, has gained
national recognition for its extraordinary con-
structions and designs.
The entire student body and community take
deep pride in Mrs. Nina Brumfield's unusual ex-
hibition of geometrical creations.
Charles seems to be holding every
one's attention except Mrs. Waters'.

This part of World History is rather
amusing to Mr. Pankratz, or perhaps
it has something to do with the snow-
man on the board.
For knowledge alone students do not attend study
halls in Ardmore High School. For personal help
with subiect matter, for individual tutoring in ex-
tremely difficult subjects, and for personal guidance
in the use of library materials-these are the privi-
leges for every student every hour.
Mrs. Blanche Sparks is not alone in this study-
supervision program as each teacher has one hour
each day for supervised study, therefore the know-
ledge of twenty-two instructors is available.
Bob checks with Mrs. Sparks to be
sure there is no "over-due" charge.
Mary Lynn, George and James put

From Silas Marner to noun and verb forms,
sophomore English students have an equally
divided course of literature and language.
Simple composition is a part of the grammar
emphasized by English ll teachers, Mrs. Eliza-
beth Lawrence and Mrs. Estaline Waters.
To better understand and appreciate our
America is the purpose of studying American
literature from the colonial Washington Irving
to the present day O'Henry. Mrs. Waters, Mrs.
Sparger and Mrs. Shirley Clement stress creative
projects to further the study of American writing
in English lll.
In the classroom of Mrs. Sparger such master-
pieces as "Macbeth" are thoroughly studied by
English lV students. College-bound seniors learn
the fundamentals of formal writing by the re-
quired 2,000 word research theme. Developing
and building habits of good thinking and study-
ing are taught throughout the entire course.
The English V classes taught by Mrs. Marie
Morse are primarily for students who wish a
detailed study in grammar and spelling. Empha-
sis is placed on improvement of individual
outside reading, vocabulary building and both
creative and oral expression.
Our English teacher from Aggieland,
Mrs. Clement, confers with an up and

First-year students are "speechless" as they
perform before the class for the first time,
but are considered experts when the semes-
ter ends. Topics for informative orations range
from hot rods to theaters.
Pantomimes, public speaking, interview-
ing and dramatics describe the program of
study outlined by Mrs. Shirley Clement, speech
teacher. Phases of parliamentary procedure,
speech construction, selling and program plan-
ning are also given a thorough study.
Throughout the year students journey to
various clinics to present dramas, original
orations and poetry in competition with other
Promoting debating, oratory, speaking,
dramatics and radio announcing are the
purposes of the National Forensic League.
Hours of practice are required to think for
one's self, to forcibly present a convincing
argument and to receive advanced speaking
skills. Students who attain a certain profici-
ency in debate and speech may become
members of the National Forensic League.
Any subject from any source at any-
time is covered in Journalism, so broad
is the scope of news writing. We gain
valuable experience in gathering, or-
ganizing and presenting news stories

Newswriting has its own unique
terminology, known only to us, the

humorous meanings in regard to news-
We find that Journalism demands
thought, time and energy. There are
rich rewards for those pursuing this
profitable profession. The John F. Easley
5500.00 scholarship is given to the most
outstanding Journalism student.

teaches both Latin I and Il.

Expert stenographers, secretaries, bookkeepers,

abundance in the Commercial Arts department
of Ardmore High School. These industrious stu-

Typing, then further their skills in Stenography
and Transcription when they are upperclassmen.
From telephone courtesy and business behav-

No detail that may profit a commercial career
is excluded from the course.

fered in Ardmore High School for the first
time this year, its success insures it of a per-

The public is kept constantly aware of the events taking
place in Ardmore High School by student-edited news

Of special interest is the "High School Highlights" column
which is produced entirely on the Journalism pupils' initia-
tive and originality.
One of the most anticipated events of every week is the
Friday presentation of the News-of-the-Air covering news
events spiced with feature stories that often leave the
students holding their sides with laughter. An air of sus-

Producing c h a m p i o n basketball
teams for Ardmore High School is the
specialty of Coach Bob Williams. This
year as the Tigers completed a win-
ning season, much of their success is
attributed to his coaching ability.
Along with training the boys in the
skills of handling a basketball, Coach
Williams also stressed the qualities
of sportsmanship, spirit and co-oper-
ation. During his five years of coach-
ing and teaching at Ardmore High
School, Mr. Williams has become a
favorite with team members and
the student body.
