The coming of November brought to E.H.S the highlight of the fall season, Homecoming. The numerous activities were begun with the traditional bonfire pep rally on Nov. 5th. All day Friday, Nov. 6th, exes enjoyed renewing old friendships and pondering at the changes since the publication of their annual. Half- time activities saw Jeannette Willett crowned Homecoming Queen and Mrs. Bill Sweet, Coming-home Queen. November held special interest for the E.H.S. band. On the tenth they went to the Regional Marching Contest in Wichita Falls. This marked the beginning of the year 's contests. After the shattering of 88 sets of nerves the band was victorious with a first division. As football season drew to a close with the lacksboro ballgame and the time came for the final pep rally, came also the an- nouncing ofthe most beautiful girl in E.H.S.

The beginning of a new decade, the beginning of ten years of development and progress and the end of the "fabulous '50's, " the era of happy memories. What did this January meant the end of a two week vacation and the beginning of a two-week workout. Yes, this first possessed the dreaded mid-term finals. These were responsible for the serious weeks of cramming - - - cramming for work we should have gotten throughout the first semes- l'l'1C8l'lIOE.H.S.? f ter. The end of one semester and the beginning of a new oneg my how time flies. January meant the fulfillment of December's dream, a world of wonderful whiteness. Snow- balling became the passtime of all boys and a temptation to a few teachers. With the middle of January came report cards and relief fin most casesj. The realization of these "soaring '60's" was now imbedded upon every mind for the opportunity to start anew, to begin once more, was presented. We had now a clean slate to sink our teeth into! For the basketball teams it was merely a continuation. Basketball fever ran high in January and the students of E. H. S. were proud of their hard-working representatives. l suppose to a few poor souls this new sound called '60 was merely the start of another year, but to the seniors of E. H. S. , 1960 had a special meaning. This new beginning was what they had waited twelve half-long, half-short, years forg this was the year of graduation. It was most definitely the end of young carefree days, but it was also the beginning of a bright future look- ing toward maturity. . geffruar .' 922,215 J earfs A Sweetheart gift at Valentine From his Ag boys, Mrs. Baily receives a small token of appreciation and admiration for his continuous help. WOW!!! On Feb. lst, 100 hearts almost burst with pride for the 60 members of the "A" and "B" football teams and their eagerly-awaited awards. The remaining bursting hearts belong to approximately 40 girls. Feb. 9th, Beverly Clark was crowned Basketball Sweetheart by captain Elliott Jones - her court, Vickie Lee, crown-bearer, Lisa Rodawalt, flow- er -bearer. Eliott and Beverly were presented during the halftime at the last home game. Goodness flowed from the hearts of students and teachers alike as they gave 891. 00, the proceeds going to the Polio fund, to see the men teach- ers of junior high take on the men teachers of high school in a basketball game that ended in a hard-fought tie. The eleventh of February, the F. F. A. boys honored their parents, sweetheart Carolyn Graf, and advisor Wade Bailey with a banquet as part of the celebration of National F. F. A. Week. The author of the comic series "Chip," Mr. Jeff Hayes, presented one of the most enjoyable assemblies ever witnessed by the students of E.l-I.S. To the delight of many and embarassment of a few he turned our ordinary f?J students and teachers into comic characters, as if they weren't al- ready! Not to be forgotten, the F. H.

H6 H om The "E" Club of Electra High School was organized in 1957 under its present constitution. To be eligible for membership in the "E" Club a boy must earn a varsity letter in athletics. The sports include football, basketball, baseball, track, tennis, and golf. The purpose of the "E" Club is to promote athletic enthusiasm among the students and fans of Electra. This year the club's money raising project was operating a concession stand at the home basketball games. With this money they hope to finance some elementary track meets and other spring events to promote interest in athletics among younger boys. Basketball fans take time out for refreshments. ocafzona 12 Qtzsffzd C115 Alberta looks very pleased at receiving her sweater. Beginning with the initiation for new members and a party following, the Electra V.I.C. Club was organized with twenty-four members. The activities of the V.I.C. for the school year included a booth in the Lion's Club Carnival, the annual Sweetheart Dance and a dinner at Underwoods followed by a bowling party. The top ten students will be delegates to the District and State meetings, the money for which is raised by the making and sell- ing of trash can stands and yard signs.

The time when Coach Hesse would speak at the pep rallies was always looked forward to because his impressive words were always an inspiration to us. We can never forget the enthusiasm and zeal the cheerleaders had at each pep -rally and game. The season was one which the boys were very determined and never let go of their fight- ing spirit. No matter what the prediction or the odds of the game were, the team never gave up. The opposing teams were well aware of the fact that they had played a spirited team when the game had ended. The wonderful spirit and the determination on the boys' faces will always be in our memories of the 1959 football season. gk cfra ,yQI1S' 796122 FIRST ROW: Deryl Adkins, Mike McKelvey, Richard Palmer, Herby Propps, O.

From years of experience in the field of beauty, John Robert Powers emphasizes the importance of not only exterior, or physical beauty of a person, but rather the inner beauty as well, which he calls their "inner glow". This was surely taken into consideration when we selected your Most Beautiful Girl. As requested, we have marked first choice on the back of the picture. This should not be a disap- pointment to any of the other students, but instead a challenge to bring into their own their individual potentials. May we take this opportunity of thanking you for thinking of the Powers School in connection with your contest. Cordially yours, JOHN ROB pRT POWERS SCHO L HM. afcolt.. TQMMJ Mrs. Malcolm D.

As a tree is known by its fruit, certainly an educational institution is known by the students who go from her doors. Electra High has looked always to the training of her students for good citizenship plus character and scholarship. I would remind the student body that the more you put into something, the more you will get out of it. Therefore, the enrichment of Electra High, as well as your own life, depends on how much you put into our school life, and how much you are will- ing to receive of the things offered here for your benefit.

H. S. The juniors survived try-outs and worked diligently to- ward the presentation of "All On Account of Louella" on March 23. In the middle of March the student body reported to the auditorium to see Coach Young present jackets to ten basket ball boys as a symbol of their many hours of hard work and effort on the court. Not to be outdone, Coach Price pre- sented sweaters to his nine girls - basketball girls, that is! During this assembly, Mr. Holcomb awarded the medals given to the winners of the Soil Conservation Essay Contest. Conny Huey received first place for our high school as well as for the freshman class. Those famous March winds failed to daunt the spirits of tennis players as the members of the team worked hard to achieve the form that brought Electra the district champion- ship. At the close of this month we would like to salute the eight men who, by the love of young people and the grace of a strong set of nerves, steered the buses so that we might arrive at our destination Safely. tennis and carried us to District Champion It was quite a job to catch the eight bus drivers still long enough to have them pose for our "birdie, " Seems they re camera shy and pre fer screaming kids to quiet CD photographers I believe you will find it easier if you try playing on two "feet, " Mrs. Cogdell.

Spring sports persisted throughout the earlier part ofthe month. "Play ball" became a well-worn phrase as the baseball team prepared for each game as if the championship rested on the results. As the month progressed so did the track boys to win sever- al first places in various meets. If boys thought they were the only athletes, they were greatly surprised by the girls softball and volleyball teams. And not to be outdone, the teachers got a little exercise when the women teachers played the girls' team - and beat them! Around the 22nd things picked up as the juniors made last minute plans for the Junior-Senior Banquet. Their pipe dreams over-reached Paris and we spent a never-to-be-forgotten April in Japan. "S ayanora" was a lovely theme and the seniors were truly sorry that the time to say "goodbye" was about to make an appearance. Interscholastic League officials chose the month of April to stage the regional contest. Electra en- tered almost every event with Bill Krohn winning first in ready writing and the band sweepstakes. The night of the 26th the seniors tried to prove it was always "Cheaper By The Dozen" with their annual play. The delights promised earlier in the month were climaxed by a new "first" at E. H.S. , an Activities Banquet. This fete was the beginning of a new tra- dition established to honor all students who, by hard work in any field, deserve to be recognized. April 30 was the day selected to close the umbrella on this exciting month of showers. "Gosh, we'll never get this done by the time the seniors arrivel " - Batter up!

S. was transformed into a fantasti- cally beautiful Japanese garden surrounded by a bamboo fence with a "tori" for the opening way into the banquet hall. Once inside the garden the eye was caught by the bridge over the min iature pond which had flowers floating daintily back and forth. Next the attraction which met the eye was the multi-colored peacock which formed the background of the head -table. Many other Japanese scenes were depicted around the room such as Mein trees, Japanese maidens, Budda, and a teahouse. After Mrs. Huguelet "spills the beans" on how the seniors acted in Junior High School. Lanterns, the bridge and colorfully dressed waitresses brought out the Japanese atmosphere. dining under the Japanese lanterns and hearing the entertainment and wonderful speech, the group divided itself. lylost of the mem bers continued the evening by attending the dance at the com- munity center where pictures of the couples were made in the rick shaw - it was even pulled by a coolie boy. After dancing to the music of Jimmy Jones band, the juniors could go home and rest realizing that all their hard work and planning had paid off in a beautiful and unforgettable evening. Meanwhile the seniors could go home, some shedding tears of sadness and others tears of joy, with thoughts of their high school years dancing in their minds and saying silently "Sayonara, Electra High School." to attend the Junior-Senior Banquet.
