'Q' w 22 The Educational Side Mathematics 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 Jacobson. An open house for the parents each s'pring brings exclamations of wonder at the mosaic- like windows and electrically lighted chandeliers constructed from brilliantly colored cellophane and cardboard. 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'. 'kit Really, Mr. Goodin, Lynn and Glen- da's problem can't be that amusing. 'k i' i' 1 Can it be that Derril is so engrossed in his math that he failed to hear Guy T.'s latest remark? X ffl NNI , Biology students agree that the model heart Mr. Goins is discussing looks a great deal more complex than the Val- entine type. 'k 'A' 'k Donna and Robert have found some- thing amusing inside their fish. 'kit One member of the class seems to have come upon a problem in his dissecting process. 1 e,...,....Q...,,..... c , Biological cience The world around us is infinitely more fascinating than we have ever guessed, The miracle of a raindrop and the beautiful sym' metry of a butterfly's wings are displayed before our wondering eyes in the study of Biology. We become better acquainted with the study of nature by making collections of insects and wild flowers. We are aided in learning about the in- tricate parts of the human body by plaster- of-paris models and lifesize diagrams and drawings. Each day brings new discoveries and inter- ests to the classroom. Lively discussions and debates on every imaginable phase ot life can be found in Biology class. Mr. Robert Goins helps us in discovering these wonders of nature. Ph sical Science Initiation into laboratory work begins the day we strike a match to a Bunsen Burner. From basic formulae to the atomic theory, we investigate the realms of Chemistry. Mr. Goodin also has 35 boys in a physics class. Study of man's first invention of the wheel to present day theories of flying saucers is fascinating and up-to-date. As spring rolls around, we complete our exhibitions and enter the annual science fair-the big event of the year. .

H'st We are always kept well-informed on past and current events and find that in American History there isn't a dull moment. Man's achievements through the ages are exactly what we learn in Mr. Pankratz's world history class. The study begins with the dawn of civilization and continues through modern society. The leading history scholars have their names in- scribed on the D.A.R. plaque in the hall. Last year's winners of this award were Mary Lou Means and David Horn, pictured at the left. U 1, Q 1'., Eff?-rem .3 g 'Qtr 7 Can this be a map of railroads in the U. S. Jan is pointing to? Yes, in 1850 not 1957. 'kit What historical event in the film is holding the attention of the class so closely? Retha, put up your shorthand! ttf 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. Librar 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. E 3 Bob checks with Mrs. Sparks to be sure there is no "over-due" charge. iii' Mary Lynn, George and James put our card catalogue and pamphlet file to use.

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. English 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 coming student. tit Oh, the suspense and terror of it all-oral book reports in Mrs. Waters' English ll classes are due. tit Heads bend and brows wrinkle over those necessary evils-diagrammed sen- tences! Dale Johnson's pantomime b r i n g s laughs from his classmates. 'ktir Patti, Marilyn, Catherine and Pris- cilla rehearse before giving their scene in a play. 'k'k'k Members of the N.F.L. are Dale Rorick, Georgia Marion, Kent Williams, Katy Leach, Jim Lewis, Stanley Beard, Tommy Miller, Mickey Andrade and Gary Dot- son. h 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 schools. 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. J Journali 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 by writing for our News-of-the-air, the Daily Ardmoreite and High School High- lights column. Newswriting has its own unique terminology, known only to us, the editors, reporters and printers of to- morrow. Common everyday words such as grapevine, flag and morgue come to have entirely new and sometimes humorous meanings in regard to news- writing. 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. f?ar E15-M i""4 WM, - - ab Q iQ Bob is pasting Criterion pictures with- out a word.

Q 5 5. ' . , 'TEEN TSE-P552-t in-.525 k-S Commercial Arts Expert stenographers, secretaries, bookkeepers, and typists of the near future are found in abundance in the Commercial Arts department of Ardmore High School. These industrious stu- dents spend long hours practicing Shorthand and Typing, then further their skills in Stenography and Transcription when they are upperclassmen. From telephone courtesy and business behav- ior to personal attractiveness and being indis- pensable to their future boss-all are stressed. No detail that may profit a commercial career is excluded from the course. Work-sheets, debits and credits, and balancing column after column of figures is only a very small part of the Bookkeeping course taught by Mrs. Louise Akers who is also the Stenography and Transcription and Shorthand instructor. Improving our knowledge of Business Mathe- matics is Mrs. Francis Jacobson. This course re- views and reminds us of the fundamentals of mathematics from the everyday use to the more professional application. Each month the Ardmore Business and Pro- fessional Women's Club, with the advice of Mrs. Akers, selects from the Commercial Arts classes an outstanding girl to be honored as Business- Woman-of-the-Month. First semester Business Women-of-the- Month are Ethel, Janice, Mary Lynn, and Pat, who are well on their way to high paid secretarial professions. 'kit Elected by the Business and Profes- sional Women's Club for second semester honors are Janie, Nancy, B a r b a r a, Lillian, and Joyce.

After learning the principles of drawing and painting, the students enter their work in various local and state contests. E 5 W . xc ,X , T' 1 xt 'nf' if ff f ,gi Music Theor To understand and enjoy the music of the old world masters as well as modern com- posers is the aim of students in the Music Theory department. Through the use of records and tape record- ings we study a series of composers and analyze their varied works, both classical and semi-classical. Also at varied intervals the students receive valuable instruction from Mr. Pankratz concerning harmony and fundamen- tals of music. Though Music Theory was of- fered in Ardmore High School for the first time this year, its success insures it of a per- manent place in the school curricula. sm , '40 000' vi. 1" 71 Harmony proves interesting to the open ears of Lynn, Jimmy, Martha and Jerry, with Mr. Elbert Pankratz playing their original compositions. ir t ir Capable critics, Mary Lou, Lin d a, Lynn and Suzanne, enioy the recordings of modern masters.

Other honors bestowed upon several deserving Tigers were selection to all-southern and all-conference teams. ead Coach Newly elected Boomer Confer- ence Head Coach, C. E.
