MR. GUY GIVENS
Perhaps the greatest service that any citizen
can render to the community is to serve as a mem-
ber of the Board of Education.
The Board of Education is the governing
board of our schools. It has the responsibility for
planning and for formulating the policies of the
entire system, and for selecting through its ad-
ministrative staff and other employees. In addi-
tion, the Board approves the curriculum, teach-
ing materials, textbooks, and all schedules, ac-
tivities and programs.
The members of the Board act as a unit, not
as individuals. They serve without pay. Their
greatest interest is the welfare and educational
growth of the community's youth. Their only com-
pensation is in the achievement of these objec-

It is indeed pleasing to me to
have this opportunity of expressing my
appreciation to you for your coopera-
tion, your maturity, your good com-
mon sense, your high honor, and your
loyalty to the customs and traditions
of this High School.
Together with your fine principal
and teachers, you are achieving a
high standard of scholarship. Certain-
ly, the requirements are rigid, the
grading is exact, and there is truly
no easy road to learning. But, in these
times, with world conditions as they
are, upon you must devolve the
great responsibility for the best pre-
paration possible for the preserva-
tion of our way of life and our great

ADMIN I STRATIVE STAFF
Mr. James Bruce, who is in his fourth year
as assistant superintendent and clerk of the
School Board, is an indispensable figure to the
Ardmore School System.
His rare combination of intellect, educa-
tional vision, and business ability is recognized
by students and faculty alike.
A dynamo of energy, Mr. Bruce is adept at
accomplishing difficult tasks rapidly, efficient-
ly, and diplomatically.

PRKN UP AL
TO THE STUDENTS OF AHS:
I am indeed privileged in having
the opportunity of working with you
and our fine faculty. A spirit of co-
operation and unity has characterized
this school year and has, I believe,
been responsible for our many achieve-
ments. Not only have you met the high
standards which are associated with
this school, but also you have made
improvements that will guide and in-
spire students of future years.
I hope that you will develop a
philosophy of life that will insure
proper use of the knowledge you are
gaining. This philosophy might include,
among other things, a deep sense of
honor and integrity, concern for the
welfare of others and constant desire
to apply your very best efforts in all

Lots ol talking and laughter make a good meal better.
The Iunior and Senior High School cafeteria under the direction of Mrs. Thelma Groomer is re-
sponsible for the feeding of 700 famished students daily.
The hungry students find that here is a place to fill up with a well-balanced meal without empty-
ing their pocketbooks. The average cafeteria luncheon costs 38 cents. At the snack bar, which serves
such goodies as malts, rolls, cokes, and other small items, the average tab is 20 cents.
Students use the building as a refuge from inclement weather and as a pleasant setting for
their mixers following home basketball games.
The building is maintained by the cafeteria custodian, Mr. Clyde Woodley.

Students taking timed tests are closely watched by Mrs. Sparger.
Mrs. Iulia K. Sparger has placed a new emphasis on the testing department this year by revising
the old files and compiling complete folders containing general information and test scores, which are
kept for each student in school.
Included in the series is the Iowa Silent Beading Test, the California Mental Maturity Test, Merit
Scholarship Qualifying Test, and the College Board Exams.
Available at all times in the testing room are data from numerous colleges and universities.
Bulletins, catalogs, scholarship facts, and general information may be secured by any interested stu-
dent throughout the school year.

Nearly two hundred students wishing
to become bilingual are enrolled in the
foreign language department, which in-
cludes Spanish I and II, taught by Miss
Consuelo Fernandez, and Latin I and II, di-
rected by Mrs. Virginia Collins.
To acquaint young people with the
language, history, and traditions of other
nations is the primary aim of the four
courses offered. It is hoped that a deeper
understanding will be gained of foreign cul-
tures, which in turn, will decrease tension
in a world of many complexities during
this mid-20th century period.
Spanish students enjoyed celebrating
Pan American Day in April, while those tak-
ing Latin have made posters and have pried

The Business Education Department strives to prepare
young men and women for a useful life after they grad-
uate from high school. As some students go directly from
school into the business world, the Shorthand, Bookkeep-
ing, Typing, Stenography and Transcription a student has
learned in high school will enable him to go into a busi-
ness office at good pay.
Other students avail themselves of all business courses
offered in high school as a background for a two year
intensified course at an institution of higher learning.
Bookkeeping is offered to Iunior and Senior students.
The entire bookkeeping cycle is presented in a simplified
form. Regardless of the size of a business, every employee
prepares some records and reports daily.

What would we do without Mrs. Sparks to
help us find those books?
Mrs. Blanche Sparks, high school librarian, has been a helpful guide to
the students of Ardmore High School. Not only has she assisted in selections
for book reports, themes, and projects, but also she has given instruction
to English II and English III students in Library Science. This explanation
has included the uses of special reference books, the card catalogue, the
Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature, and the Dewey Decimal System.
She also administered the Keystone Visual Survey Telebinocular to
the entire student body. Mrs. Sparks conducts study periods in the library
throughout the day.
High School students are indeed fortunate in having a complete and
well-maintained library in which books may be found on science, history.
drama, poetry, literature, religion, philosophy, music, art, speech, psychology,
and other related subjects.

MR. E. M. PANKRATZ
Through the years Mr. E. M. Pankratz
has introduced many students to the won-
derful world of music. Students enter the
Vocal Music Department with a vague pic-
ture of music, but leave with a broad know-
ledge and understanding of the field.
He has dedicated his time and talents
to the Vocal Department, and, as a result,
the ensembles and glee clubs have been
well represented at district and state con-
tests. Through the instruction and devotion
of the director, these groups have repeated-
ly won superior and excellent ratings.
"Anyone can sing" is Mr. Pankratz's
motto. The bases of proper singing, mouth
and lip position, and breathing have been
Mr. Pankratz's major objective in teach-
ing music is to give the students at least a
rudimentary knowledge of the art to the
extent that their appreciation of something
beyond rock-and-roll will be enhanced.

TIGER TOPICS STAFF
For the first time in approximately ten years AHS
has had a school paper run on a definite schedule. TIGER
TOPICS was popular with the faculty and students alike.
Meeting deadlines, composing original copy, gather-

The main objective of TIGER TOPICS was to gather
and present as accurately as possible all facts of AHS

"Make room for the Sophomores!" Tons oftalent--athletic
ability, school spirit, and various others all shone forth to
make this our best year yet!
In the scholastic field Iohn Mayes, an outstanding
athlete, proved that "brains and brawn" can go hand in
hand by being the sole recipient of straight "A's" in the
entire student body at the end of the first six week's period.
Our representatives in the field of "cheering on old
Ardmore" were two very vivacious and versatile lasses
named Teri Ienkins and Liz Leverett.
Our part in the continuous buzz of Council activity has
been very capably handled by our members Nancy Patillo,
Iohanna Wilson, Donna Steele, Nancy Coffman, Mina Lu
Churchill, Laura Lee Paynter, Arthur Iones, Steve Cook,
Coleman Robinson, Ioe Davis, Iohn Mayes, Ralph Knight,
and Stanley Bartel.
What is a class without excellent officers and sponsors?
Our class is in no position to answer as we had the very
best! Paul White, president, Nanelle Wall, secretary-
treasurer, and Brenda Buchanan, vice-president, with Mrs.
Estaline Waters and Mr. Robert Goins, our sponsors, do-
ing their utmost to make this year a rewarding and en-
Sports as well as scholastic activities are a basic
part of high school. Among the football players during
the past season were Iohn Mayes, Iack Jacobson, Don Cun-
ningham, Gary Bennett, Robert Ward, Charles Lynch, and
Put all these together and what do you have?
"We're the best, man we're great,
Sophomore class of '58!"

Sing. 1-DOY. Sing- Look out below!
SONG OF ARDMORE
A song of Ardmore and her love so true comes waiting o'er the air and thrills us through cmd through.
While the bells of victory do ring, we'll answer back by rising to sing--Hail! Old Ardmore, hurrah,
hurrah, hurrah! Our alma mater, thou art loyal, brave, and true. Her spirit guiding as we journey on:
we'll always wear the red and white for Old Ardmore.
You may talk about your colleges, fair Harvard and old Yale, and all the universities whose banners
brave the gale, the azure flag of Cambridge, and old Oxford's noble blue that fly in far-off England,
o'er hearts so brave and true. From the sunny shores of Frisco to the distant Portland, Maine. Away
off to the Philippines and way back home again--No college, university, or school can ever show, so
brave, so true, so great a crew as students that we know.
For we are jolly students of the Ardmore, Oklahoma, schools. Our colors are red and white, we wear
the emblem of our alma mater true--rah-rah-rah. We're the kind that dare and do.
Mr. Goins, why didn't the Sophomore float win? At least the Seniors tried.

You know that in your life
You've closed another year.
But the things you'11 always remember
Are the ones recorded here.
My work as Tiger Spirit
Has no end, but my job
As yearbook guide is done.
So, as I pause to catch some sleep
I say "Good-bye" to everyone.. .
