QUILL ANNUAL STAFF
OF ENID HIGH SCHOOL
This is your yearbook, The twenty-second
edition of the Quill annual. Our purpose is to
have you recall the funny experiences. Warm
friendships, and fond memories of your high
The chapters from the beginning to the
end of the school year are included within the
pages of this annual. If, in later years, you can
smile in remembrance of your days in El-IS,
our purpose will have been realized.
To you, the administrators of education:
to you, the faculty: to you, the citizens of
Enid: to you, the students of Enid High school:
we dedicate the 1955 Quill annual.
The drive and leadership of the administra-
tors and faculty made the book possible. The
farsighted Wisdom of the citizens of Enid, in
voting the new wing addition, made the theme
"Building" a reality, and the students whose
interest in worthwhile activities will make the
class motto "Tomorrow, Better Than Todayu.

The responsibility of making the
Enid School system, and a school the
size of Enid High run smoothly lies
beyond the students and faculty, it
is the responsibility of seven of Enid's
outstanding citizens, the Board of
Three of these members are elected
to the Board for a term of four years
by Enid citizens every two years and
one member is elected at-large. The
members work without actual pay
for their time and effort, just as a
church member and club officer work
without pay, but the members feel
they are repaid by the appreciation
shown by Enid students and parents.
The Board this year is headed by
the president, Mrs. Clyde E, Pinker-
ton and vice president, R. F. Hayes.
Other members are Mrs. Clarence
Schrock, Cleo Fisher, E. G. Wilmoth,

Six committees under the super-
vision of the president handle the
comprehensive problems that arise.

On Tuesday. March 8, the new
auditorium was dedicated to the past,
present, and future students of Enid
High School. This first assembly
symbolized the uncountable hours of
labor to make the new wing a reality,
The credit for the new wing
cannot rest entirely with a few peo-
ple. The voters, who were wise
enough to see the need for an audi-
torium wing, the workmen, from the
architects to the bricklayers, and the
administrators who gave so much
time and energy to this project.
An evidence of the many hours
that De Witt Vv'aller, superintendent
of schools, gave, is his numerous trips
to see if each phase of the construc-
tion was being carried out correctly.
"Since the day after the fire dis-
aster, plans for rebuilding a better
Enid High were already in motion.
However, due to the increased enroll-
ment in the elementary schools, funds
were not available to do anything
about rebuilding the high school.
This year marks the end of the wait-
ing period. A high school that is
usable and functional, built with the
student in mind, is the end result of
twelve years of careful planning," re-
lated Mr, Waller.
"Enid High School with the 'new
look' of the auditorium wing will
add to the educational, spiritual, and
cultural development of students for
many years to come," concluded Mr.
To illustrate the driving force of
D. Bruce Selby, principal, is the de-
voted, enthusiastic spirit he has dem-
onstrated throughout the entire pro-
ject. "Enid High School exists for
one reason. For the students, and it
is for the students' personal conveni-
ence that we strive to improve our
facilitiesf' stated Mr. Selby.
"The completion of the auditori-
um wing certainly didn't lessen any
of the work of the faculty or of the
principals office. ln fact, never have
we been so busy before," he added.
Bi' BEN HARRISON
"From a peanut stand to the Pen-
tagon, the amount of achievement is
not measured in the end product, but
in the spirit and enthusiasm in which
the job is carried out. The spirit of
Enid High School is never to be ques-
tioned. The new wing addition with
the auditorium, cafeteria, and class-
rooms is here to give the future stu-
dents of Enid High School the most
modern and efficient facilities in
which to receive an education," stated

Me Wdewpaiaz' of cz Wad! I
This is my biography. Of course,
you might not be interested in the
life of a nail, but my life tells the
story of the building which played
a big role in your school life.
Remember you were just juniors
when it all started. I guess, it was
the first day that you noticed the
noise that my life began. For some
time I had been a prisoner in a keg
of nails. Then one day a man reach-
ed in with his hand and picked up
several of my inmates and me. For
Il second I didn't know just what
was going to happen, the man had
singled me out from the others and
was holding me perpendicular to the
wall of something or other. Just as
I was about to relax, a large object

which I later learned was a hammer
came rushing toward me: but I duck-
ed, My body was bent and the man
was using the most terrifying lan-
guage. I dare not repeat it, partly
because I was so stunned by the blow
that I doubt if I could be relied on
to make a correct quote. I lost con-
sciousness and when I awoke I found
myself on a ledge. Since there was
no escape at the time, I took a nap.
For several weeks I remained on
the ledge. I spent most of the time
sleeping, but one day I was awakened
by voices from below. I peered over
the edge of the ledge and was able
to see one boy. In order to see the
other one, I leaned further over the
ledge. As I lost my balance, I was
glad that my life had been limited
to the extent that I was unable to
commit any grave sins. However,
life was not overl I found myself in
the cuff of the boy's blue jeans. Al-
though I was washed several times,
and ironed just as many times, I
never lost my place in the cuff. From
the cuff, I saw the life of Enid High
School: and its growth.
To me the noise of the construc-
tion workers and their machines had
always been exciting. How narrow
minded I would have remained, if
I had not fallen off the ledge. My
visits to the classrooms broadened my
education, and they also gave me my
first taste of other peoples opinions,
For instance, I found that most of

the teachers and students did not find
the bulldozers or the riveting or the
hammering the least bit exciting. lt
was easy to see why, the memory of
Mrs. l.loyd Spencer trying to be
heard over the noise will haunt me
forever. During the noisy days she
would have to talk so loudly. that
during the quiet days she would be
so hoarse that she couldnt be heard.
The building was not all roses.
Since l had spent some of my
earlier days viewing the construction
work in the new wing, l was very
eager for its completion: and had
found a real love in my heart for it.
Naturally l never expected it to wreck
my home life in the cuff, which it
almost did. Principal D. Bruce Selby
had given me a clue which if I had
heeded would have prepared me for
the situation. He warned the classes
about the lockers. and he was right
it was almost my undoing. My mas-
ter was in quite a rush when it hap-
pened, He needed a hook for his
next class. and the locker stuck. For-
getting Nlr. Selby's advice about con-
trolling his temper. he took a couple
of practice kicks in the air. l had
been resting at the time. and it was
certainly an awful experience to wake
up and find myself swinging back
and forth in a wide arch. For sev-
eral moments l felt sure l would
be sent flying from my home, but
with all my strength I was able to
hold on. lncidentally, he didn't kick
the locker: Mr. Selby came around
the corner, which possibly saved my
master a broken foot,
Due to my crooked body, l was
able to hang over the edge of the
cuff without any fear of falling.
After living in a world where the
only change in scenery was a new pair
of shoes, l was a very happy nail the
day that l got my first view of the
cafeteria, By peering over the edge
of the cuff, l could see that the floor
was of white asphalt tile with green
dashes of color in it: and there was
a border of green tile with specks of
white . . . very interesting country.
Also. the walls. as far as l could see.
were of cream colored cement bricks.
By counting 3-l-l table legs. l was
able to discover the number of tables
in the cafeteria: 86. Since there were
l-l chair legs at each table. I figured
there were six chairs at each table.
This information was made available
through my mathematics course
taught by Miss Ruth Kloore. The
tables were of nice blonde wood. but
l never got a chance to see the :olor
of the tops of the tables . . . a -guff
does have disadvantages. One lunch
hour l was really very nervous, my
master ate dinner with a girl: and
after becoming accustomed to blue
jeans l just couldn't relax. Oh. but
this was after the auditorium was
The happiest day of my life was
the day Mr. Selby called all the sen-
iors into the auditorium for a sneak
preview. Those blue walls v.'ere so
beautiful: two shades of blue, and
trimmed with white borders. l'll
never, never forget itf The seats had
pretty red cushions, and they must
have been comfortable because my
master was awfully slow about get'
ting up. The curtains were lovely.
You could raise or lower them to any
position by the press of a button.
The loveliest :urtain of all was the
grand curtain, which was usually a
tannish rose color: but it could
change colors when different colored
lights hit it. i-Xt another time l saw
the scene of a room on the stage.
and it even had a ceiling, The room
was for The Thespian Play. whfch l

Saturday, June 5, ready for a
wonderful week at Girls' State, five
excited girls, who had come all the
way from Enid, got off the bus at
Chickasha. But that wasn't the be-
ginning. It all began with the junior
girls writing a fifty-word theme on
"XVhy l Want to Go to Girls' State".
They also listed their achievements
and activities in high school. The five
lucky girls who were chosen to renre-
sent Enid at Chickasha were: Pat
Phillips, Deanna Spickelmier, Karen
Crowley, Jerrie Pinkerton. and Cari-
When they arrived on the campus,
the girls were divided into cities and

counties, and the two parties, the
Boomers and the Sooners. Then they
spent the rest of the day unpacking
and getting acquainted with some of
the three hundred and sixty-'two girls
who had come to Girls' State. On
Sunday, everyone attended church
services and had their pictures taken,
one picture of the entire group and
one of each city. Sunday evening there
were vespers conducted by Reverend
Robert Noeve of Norman, then ref
ports on Girls' Nation were given by
last year's delegates, Governor La

educational director, and every eve-

On Monday evening the girls were
entertained by Richard Hudnut's
"Charm Hour". The demonstraters
used two of the girls to show ways
to use make-up and gave door prizes
of cosmetics to a few lucky girls.
Tuesday party conventions were
to decide the candidates for state offi-
cers for each party. Pat Phillips was
nominated for Governor by the

The 1954 session of Oklahoma
Boys' State was held on the North
Base Campus of the University of
Oklahoma during the week of June 7
to June l3. Eive hundred and eight
boys from all over the state attended
this week of fun and education in the
processes of our state and local gov-
ernment, The event was sponsored by
the American Legion in co-operation
with local civic clubs of Oklahoma
interested in youth of our state.
Registering in the Administration
Building, and receiving standard
State "gear", consisting of two "T"
shirts. party assignments, either
Boomer or Sooner, cities where you
stayed, and an official identification
badge, began the memorable week.
Each boy was classified as a "citizen"
of Boys' State. Every delegate from
Enid was placed in separate cities, so
everyone would meet citizens from
Two things occurred every day of
the week. One was looked forward
to with great anticipation, the other
however, wasn't quite so popular.
The two events were class and recrea-
tion. ln the class period, competent
instructors from the university and
authorities in the field of state gov-
ernment, lectured about every phase
of Oklahoma's laws and by-laws.
During the recereation period, sports
of every nature were available to all
who wanted to participate.
On Sunday, church services were
held for all citizens. The Boys' State
Choir sang several hymns, to put the
entire assembly in a Worshipful and
receptive mood for the sermon. The
Reverend Stanley Ray from Clinton,
delivered a truly inspiring message.
That evening all citizens heard re-
ports of Boys' Nation by Fred Till-
man of Pawhuska, and Dallas Patton
of Ardmore, delegates to the national
version of Boys' State last year.
Bar examinations were offered to
all citizens who desired to practice
law in the courts of Boys' State. At-
torneys who successfully completed
the exam from Enid included: Bert

Monday evening brought the
campaign speeches and rallies for the
various candidates running for state
offices. The election held the next
day proved the Boomers were better
politicians than the Sooners: Only
two Sooners were elected out of thir-
teen possible offices. Two citizens
from Enid, Owen Wilson, and Bob
O'Brien, were elected to the House
of Representatives, Other candidates
from Enid who aspired for office
were: Bert Bucher, Attorney General:
Larry Long, Corporation Commis-
sioner: John Rempel, County Super-
intendent of Schools: Paul Rempel.
House of Representatives: Richard
Gott, County Assessor: Ben Harri-
son, Senate: Jerry Wilkins, City
Manager: Bob Murray, Reading
Clerk for House: Ray Potter, origin-
ally from Jet who is a 1955 EHS
graduate, Member of State Board of
The basic issues in the election
were repealing prohibition, and al-
lowing l8 year-olds to vote. ln the
opening session of the legislature both
bills passed the houses. The prohibi-
tion bill was killed by the Senate,
and Governor Wayne Hensley vetoed
the bill letting l8 year-olds vote. ln
a very convincing speech Governor
Hensley presuadad the House not to
override his veto, This highlighted
the legislative program for the week.
A variety show consisting of all
Boys' State talent was held Vv'ednes-
day. The junior councilors 'iBusted
up" the program showing how they
elected a governor in the 'iGood Old
Days", to the extreme delight of
every citizen. The Boys' State band
gave a concert Thursday evening to
credit any high school band in the
On Friday, the last full day of
Boys' State, two of the most import-
ant events were scheduled. The ex-
amination, testing one's knowledge of
what he had learned from his text-
book and lectures about state gov-
ernment: the annual Boys'-Girls'
State dance, to be held on the North
Base Campus. After the exam was
finished, all citizens began to "slick-
up" for the arrival of the Girl Staters
from Chickasha. The dance was a
lot of fun, and a fitting climax for
the week's activities.
Saturday morning was the last
time the Boys' State citizens assem-
bled. The Koch City flag, Melvin
Brown's boys doing extra exercises.
the Variety Show, and the many,
many, other experiences of this week
became memories to be cherished al-
ways. With good-byes and promises
to renew friendships, the l954 ver-
sion of Boys' State came to an end.
One singular experience stands out
above all others. As each day began
and ended, the American flag was
raised and lowered, with 500 boys
standing at attention. This feeling
the historians and philosophers say
is Patriotism. Words are inadequate
to express this feeling. lt unites
every person with a sense of duty.
respect, and obligation to that flag.
This is the real objective of Boys'
State. Ereedom's cause, the cause that
men have died for through the years.
This training at Boys' State makes
one aware of his great responsibility
to God, to country, and to his fellow-

by the officers.
At the first of the year, to bestow
the good wishes of the school upon

carry out the theme of the party,
games designed to acquaint the hon-

At the end ofthe Summer of 1954
a loud wail filled the desolate halls
and empty class rooms of Enid High

it was Mr. Gerald Hemphill, band
director, sounding his bugle call to
round up the band members in time
to begin what was to be the most
exciting year to the members of the

The sun shone brightly as the
two tramp dogs trotted vigorously
along in the crispy autumn air.
Ahead loomed the big dark building,
Enid High School. Many times dur-
ing the summer months, Fido and
Rover had passed the mysterious
structure, but now it had become a
bee-hive of activity. After a hasty
decision, the two decided to make a

thorough investigation. Placing paw
before paw, the two cautiously climb-
ed the stone steps to the entrance. As
they entered the halls, strains of mu-
sic came to their ears. Glancing
knowingly at each other, the Mpart-
ners in crime" continued toward the
sounds to make further inquiries.
The vibrant sounds aroused their
imaginative curiosity, and the
"strays" peeked timidly in the door.
The room was buzzing with activi-
ty. As nearly as the pups could make
out, an election was taking place.
Yes, that's it, an election. Seems to
be all-girl officers, too: Deanna Fish-

listening, when out of nowhere a
bell sounded. When the stampede
terminated, Rover and Fido sat hud-
dled together in a dark corner in the
hall. "Don't we lead a dog's life!"
exclaimed Rover as the two sneaked
toward the nearest exit.
Not satisfied with their first trip,
the two adventurous canines again
returned to "the scene of the crime."
This time, while trying to escape obf
servation, the two overheard the
strains of "White Evening", A'Clap
Yo' Hands". "Go Down Death",
"Laudamus Te", "Sing We All",
"Grant Unto Us Thy Blessing", and
the traditional "Hallelujah Chorus".
The chorus was rehearsing for the
thirteenth annual Thanksgiving chor-
al festival to be held November 22
at Stillwater. The group was work-
ing feverishly. and Rover and Fido,
enthralled by the beautiful music,
did not notice a man with a railroad
hat and overalls sneaking slowly
upon the pair. Rover saw him just
in time to bark the alert to Fido and
as the two raced out of the building.
they heard someone yell, "Catch
them, Mr. Kirk." This savage yell
no doubt pertained to the individual
who was chasing the "intruders" out
of the building.
'AI would just love to go back and
find out what happens at the Christ-
mas vespersf' said Rover. "Christmas
vespers?" exclaimed Fido. "Who,

"Well, you really get around
don't you," Fido said. "l-et's go to
hear them sing." So the couple agreed,
and when the day arrived, two un-
seen observers sat huddled together
high in a corner of Convention Hall,
closely listening to the beautiful
chords that rose from the floor.
Later on in the winter, the pups
were still discussing the wonderful
time they had had at the Christmas
vespers when again in their travels.
they chanced upon the building, Enid
High School. As Rover and Fido
sat contemplating whether or not to
chance going in the building again,
the front door burst open, and two
people, whom they recognized as
Ann White and Bob Dundas, were
discussing plans to sing at Kiwanis.
Behind Ann and Bob were two more
well-known couples, Jerrie Pinkerton
and Vance Peak, and Karen Crowley
and Elwyn Maddox. The couples
were busily talking over various plans
to attend civic affairs and sing in as-
semblies and passed by Rover and
Fido without noticing the two ad-
An open door was the perfect
chance for which the dogs had been
waiting. Darting quickly inside, the
two proceeded down the stairs to the
first floor toward their old UlOOlfO1lI
post" outside the chorus room. They
noticed, however, that the music they
heard was not coming from the
chorus room. The strains were drift-
ing down from the newly completed
auditorium. Being inquisitive, the
pair journeyed up to the auditorium
"to get the facts". As they entered,
a strange sight came to their eyes.
The glee club girls, with whom the
two had become well acquainted,
were on the stage practicing an Ha-
waiian dance. "Boy, this is some
dance," said Rover. As the pups sat
in the darkened auditorium, they
were about discovered by four cou-
ples who were practicing what they
called "the polka". They later learn-
ed that these couples were Joan Kud-
lac, Sue Holley, Naoma Deurkson,
Claudine Harris, Danny Duggan,
James Pride, Pat O'Leary, and Bobby
Linderer. "They also were termed
'Sophomores' or something of the
sort," said Fido, "and are going to
dance the polka on the 'Time to
As the two watched, Carol Carl-
berg, accompanist for the mixed
chorus, began playing Aa waltz, and
Larry Long and Sue Pope danced
gracefully onto the stage, Wagging
their tails in thorough enjoyment,
the two glanced at each other, gave
a nod of approval and continued to
watch the brilliant show before them.
The song ended, and Fido and Rover
jumped to their feet to bark an en-
core, but thinking better of it, they
headed for the door,

Fido and Rover many times re-
turned to the building to hear this
beautiful music and see the wonderful
dances, but a dog is a dog, and it
is quite a dangerous occupation to
enter and leave someones "humble
abode" without asking their permis-
sion. So the "strays" began coming
to the building at night, One spring
night as the two romped playfully
up to their "private entrance", they
noticed that the auditorium was all
Hearing the old familiar chords,
the pair hurried quickly inside, Quiet-
ly they entered the auditorium, found
them a spot in a dark corner, and
settled themselves to listen. On the
floor next to the couple, they noticed
a piece of paper containing a list of
names and what seemed to be a pro-
gram, "I'm sure glad I'm an educated
dog so I can read this," said Fido.
"Do you know what this says?"
"No," Rover replied. "Well," Fido
excitedly explained, "this must be
the dress rehearsal for the "Time to
Sing' program." Just as he was about
to begin explaining further, the mu-
sic began, and the observers stopped
the discussion to listen.
The two sat entranced by the
beauty of the music and were so
overwhelmed that it was all that
Rover could do to keep Fido from
adding his lyric tenor voice to the
choir. The program unfolded before
their eyes, boys glee club, accompa-
nied by Carol Carlberg: girls' glee
club, accompanied by Elwyn Mad-
dox: girls' chorus, accompanied by
Diane Miller, and of course. the
mixed chorus with Carol at the

the direction of Miss Maurine Mor-
As Rover glanced down the list of
names, he saw several newly added
seniors, J. W. Moore, lmo Copper,
and Bill Hall. Turning their atten-
tion again to the stage, they heard
the strains of "Tweedle-Dee', sung
by Patsy Hathoot: "Young and
Foolish", by Karen Crowley: "Hearts
of Stone", by a trio, Marlene Cline,
Barbara Anstead and Joyce Maupin:
"Sisters", by Jerrie Pinkerton and

quartet, Vance Peak, Bob Dundas.
Elwyn Maddox, and James Land-
rum, all singing "hit" tvnes for the
portion "Stars on Parade".
The concluding number on the
program was the crowning of the
chorus queen, Bonnie Light by her
attendant Ray Potter. Other attend-
ants were: Deanna Fisher and Elwyn

The curtain closed, and the mus-
cal puppies sat too elated to talk. The
people began clamoring out of the
auditorium, and Rover and Fido were
close behind. If you had been listen-

One of the most unusual plays ever
to be presented in Enid High School,
the play was actually a trial with the
jury selected from the audience. The
witnesses, members of the cast, were
seated in the audience.
The trial was a battle of wits be-
tween the two lawyers, Defense At-
toney Stephens and District Attor-
ney Flint. Flint, the methodical
lawyer, basing his case on facts, was
played exceptionally well by Bert
Bucher. Stephens, played by Ben
Harrison, basing his case on emotion-
al appeal, was particularly outstand-

older woman, was a difficult part for

and the escorting of the defendant
into the court by prison matron Ruth
Baker, the play began. After Jerry
Wilkins, court clerk, had called the
jury and Judge Heath, Milton An-
drews, had instructed the jurors in
their duty, the trial proceeded. Kent
Corey, court policeman, was on hand
to see that all was done according to
the law. The court secretary, Carolyn
Muir, defense SQCFCIHFY, Linda Rob-
bins, and district attorney's secretary
Jane Carey, sharpened their pencils
and prepared to record the trial. The
Judge, clerk, prison matron, police-
man, secretaries, and bailiff played
their respective parts to credit any
On the night of January l6th,
Bjorn Faulkner fell or was pushed
from the roof of the Faulkner Build-
ing. As the witnesses were called, the
following story unfolded.
"Faulkner could have died from
the bullet wound or the fall," stated
Dr. Kirkland, the slightly eccentric
medical examiner, played very well
by Ralph Myers.
Mrs. John Hutchens, wife of the
night janitor in the Faulkner Build-
ing, timidly stated that she had seen
Miss Andre, Mr. Faulkner, and two
other gentlemen come into the build-
ing on the night of the murder, and
later the two gentlemen had left
about ten minutes apart. Suda Boh-

bitt gave an excellent characterization
of the timid, nervous woman.
Homer Van Fleet, private detective,
stated that he had been hired to fol-
low Bjorn Faulkner, and had seen
Karen Andre push Faulkner off the
building. Ray Potter played the non-
chalant private eye to match the in-
difference of any character out of
Elmer Sweeney, the ambitious
young rookie patrolman, was Vance
Peak, portraying the enthusiasm and
energy of any young man who is new
on the job. He was assigned to in-
vestigate the murder, but gave forth
no information, except about himself.
Janet Kindt efficiently character-
ized Jane Chandler, the police court
secretary. Miss Chandler established
the fact that Karen Andre could forge
Faulkner's name almost perfectly.
ln the role of Nancy Lee Faulkner,
Eleanor Northrop portrayed the
heart-broken widow to the extent of
breaking down completely in her
testimony. Nancy Lee told that Bjorn
had reformed when he married her,
and that he had discharged his secre-
tary, and was trying to save his busi-

giving Faulkner enough time to reach
the airport-Karen Andre pushed the
dead body off the building.
Larry Regan then took the stand
to tell the part of the story Karen did
not know. When Regan had reached
the airfield, he had found the plane
gone. He had waited in the back seat
of a black sedan parked there until
the owner came back. Regan pro-
duced a check the man had given
him. The check was signed by John
Upon cross questioning, Regan ad-

loved Faulkner-that was their only
As the last witness, Roberta Van
Rensselaer, the wife of the deceased
Lefty O'Toole, drew the attention
for which she was dressed, from the
audience as she took and left the
witness stand. Norma Thompson
played the part of the "moll" of a
gang of crooks exceedingly well.
As the jury filed off the stage to
come to a verdict, the members of the
audience were heard trying to arrive
at their decision.
Two different endings were
learned for the play-to agree with
the verdict brought in by the jury.
On the night of November 16th,
in the Education Building, Karen
Andre was found guilty of the murd-
er of Bjorn Faulkner, ending one of
the most unusual plays in the history

The three-act comedy-drama "June
Graduate" by Jean Provence was pre-
sented Tuesday, May l0, by the sen-
ior class under the direction of Mrs.
This is the believable, the always
intensely gripping story of a boy who
loses himself-and almost his whole
future at one of the most important
crossroads of his life. There is some
sadness, yes. But the tear-touched
moments are delightfully mingled
with the irrepressible, exultant laugh-

It's graduate night when Bob
Gardner, Melvin Semrad, gets the
"jolt"! His widowed mother, Janet
Kindt, tells him the money his father
left isn't enough to send him to col-
lege: and Bob-class president, foot-
ball captain, idol of the school and
"Mr, Big" himself-just can't "Take

the prospect of going through college
as a "little guy", he suddenly, in an
unhappy moment of self-pity and
frustration, becomes engaged to Agnes

Everyone is surprised and stunned.

through college, despite his engage-
ment. Bob's other friends-aided by
a college fraternity man-try to line
up an athletic scholarship for him:
but Bob, who's never worried about
assignments and tests, finds that his
grades are too low.
Disconsolate, Bob gets himself a
tiring, back-breaking, and decidedly
unglamorous job of pushing a wheel-
barrow on a cement gang. The money
is good, but the prospect of doing
this as a life's work gives him some
pause for sober thought. Maybe with
S400 he has already deposited in a
joint bank account with Agnes-
plus what he'll be able to earn wash-
ing dishes at the frat house-he'd
better enroll at the university in Sep-
tember, after all. But Agnes has other
ideasl In a weak moment, she draws
the S400 from the account and makes
a down payment on a thousand-
dollar engagement ring!
Bob, though incensed and disap-
pointed. continues to plod wearily
away at his job, meeting the pay-
ments on the ring, his dreams of State
U. growing dimmer and dimmer.
And when at last-in the waning
days of summer and the twilight of
his hopes-the others are leaving for
college, he catches a plimpse of the
barren, humdrum future in store for
himself - unless he is willing to
wrestle the realities and win! The
issues are recognizable close-to-home

Ann White enthralled the audience
with her portrayal of Nancy, a wist-
ful young girl of sixteen in the play.
"We VJere Young That Year," pre-
sented by the junior class, and di-
rected by Mrs. Delyte Poindexter.
In the play Nancy recalls the
things that made her summer so won-
derful. Andy, a handsome young
athlete, played by Bob Dundas, was
the main factor in making the sum-
mer so enjoyable.
The others who helped make her
summer so exciting were Ernie and
Joe played by "the class comic,"
Gregg Bond, and everybody's pal,
Joe Hume. They were always crack-
ing stories out of their handy joke
Betsy, who was always trying to
get a laugh, was Cinda Siler who
characterized the part extremely well.

an excellent job in the part of Larry,

very interested in Marsha, a beautiful
and glamorous girl of eighteen, play-
ed by Sally Bonham. Kathaleen Jones
did a good job with the part of Aunt
Sally, a fluttery old maid and bird
fancier. Nine-year-old Patsy and
Dunnie played by Karen Smith and
David Fisher, caused quite a stir with
their space helmets and games of cow-
boys and Indians. Sandy Barris made
a perfect Carol, the pretty, eager-to-
please girl of seventeen.
Hudson and Jack were portrayed
by David Miller and Gail Crawford.
Elsie and Leona were Mary Edith
Taylor and Elaine Palecek. A girls'
quartet was made up of Barbara
Hock, Charlsie Gustin, Vonna Mor-
ris and Kay Ewing.

be heard auctioning off the boxes.

The 1954 Enid Plainsmen football
season featured hard luck throughout
the campaign for the Warriors from
West Wabash. The Plainsmen, who
were ably coached by Charlie Paine
and Jimmy Keeton, had four victories
while losing to six decisively heavier
A light, but scrappy and speedy
team, played a determined brand of
football throughout the season. The
Enid line was outweighed 10 pounds
per man in almost every tilt in their
Enid's pony backfield was called
by many sports scribes one of the
finest in the state. The speed of half-
back Johnny Pellow and Donnie
Weldon, the power of fullback
"Bronco" Bob Davis, and the master-
ful ball trickery of senior quarterback
Terry lngram, rolled up an unbeliev-
able total of 1,548 yards rushing.
The first game of the season in-
augurated a new stadium with a seat-
ing capacity of 5,500. An impressive
28-6 Enid victory over the fighting
Garber Wolverines gave the rest of
the schedule a more optimistic out-
look. Pellow scored twice in the en-
counter with Weldon and Davis each
tallying once. Guard Ray "Golden
Toe" Downs booted four perfect con-
versions. Late in the game, with the
Plainsmen reserved on the field,
Garber fullback Curt Hickle punched
over from the three-yard line for the
lone Garber tally of the evening.
The next week against Stillwater,
Johnny Pellow had a field day in the
28-7 rout of the hapless Pioneers.
Pellow ran for three touchdowns and
passed for a fourth. The outstanding
play of the game was Pellow's bril-
liant 67 yard punt return in which he
completely reversed his field and out-
ran a host of pursuing Pioneers.
A The undefeated Plainsmen then
invaded Owen Stadium in Norman
where they were handed by the fired-
up Tigers a 27-O deficit in the first
half. The Plainsmen fought gallantly
back in the second half before losing
34-27. Norman's great halfback,
Wilson Wilhite, scored three touch-
downs in the first half, for the boys
from Sooner town. Pell-ow continued
his scoring spree by taking two per-
fect tosses from Terry lngram and
racing 29 and 55 yards into the royal
soil of the end zone. Davis went 52
yards in a third quarter touchdown
thriller, and lngram nosed over from
the one yard line to account for the

The vengeful Plainsmen journeyed
to Shawnee to pound out a 24-12
triumph in drizzling weather which
made it almost impossible for either
team to pass. Enid's ground game
made up for what it -:ouldn't do in
the air, with lngram and Pellow each
scoring twice. Following this win the
Plainsmen were vaulted into the
eighth spot in state prep ratings.
Enid chalked up its fourth win of
the season against the visiting Central
Cardinals with halfback Donnie
NVeldon running wild in the 26-7
victory. The Cardinal defenses had
their sights set for Pellow and left
"Dazzling" Donnie Weldon wide
open, as he scampered seven yards in
the second quarter for the first Plains-
men tally. He returned the sceond
half kickoff 85 yards to further baffle
the Cardinals. Then, linebacker John
Marler intercepted a Central pass, and
raced 55 yards untouched by Card-
inal tacklers. Pullback Davis cracked
over from the one yard line for the
other Plainsmen score.
The Capitol Hill Redskins, peren-
nial powerhouse of the Mid-State
Conference, proved to have too much
depth in the forward wall for the
Plainsmen, as they dumped Enid
26-7. Halfbacks Bobby Jobe, Carl
Slayton, and end Bill lVlcNutt,
making All Mid-State honors, scored
for the Skins in the first half to set
the Plainsmen back 19-O at the half,
Weldon put the Plainsmen back into
the ball game with a 7 yard sprint in
the third period. The injuries suffered
in this tilt were a prime factor in the
losing landslide of the Plainsmen
which began with this game. Center
Bill Lang, halfback Pellow, and full-
back Davis suffered injuries in the
contest with the Hillmen,
With All-State quarterback, Roy
Boring, leading the way, the Ponca
City Wildcats put on a fantastic ex-
hibition of ball handling while
downing the Big Blue 28-14. Boring
scored twice and kicked one field goal.
The two Boring tallies came after he
had pitched to fullback Jackie Rein,
who then flipped the pigskin back to
Boring at the last second before going
down. Halfback Dick Wilson scored
twice in the game, once on a play
which saw the ball change hands
three times. Boring lateraled to Rein,
who then returned the ball to Boring
who proceeded then to give the ball
to Vwlilson, who crossed the double
stripe. John Pellow was the whole
show offensively, for the Plainsmen.
as he ran '58 yards for one touchdown
and passed 22 yards to H. L. Crites
for the other.
The Blues played their best defen-
sive ball game of the year against the
Classen Comets, but it was all in
vain, due to losing ll to 13 fumbles
as the Comets raced to a 19-6 victory.
All three Classen touchdowns came
after the Comets fell on Enid fumbles
inside the Plainsmen 20 yard marker.
Pellow scored Enid's touchdown in
the fourth stanza with an electrifying
38 yard end run. The Enid defense
showed up well in this game with
Bobby Atkinson, Steve Meitler, John
Marler, Keith Roberts, Charles Bailey
and John Pounds looking exceptional
in the fray.
lt was too much of Ronnie Jones
for the homestanding Plainsmen, as
they were upset by the rampaging
Lawton Wolverines 34-13. Lawton,
who was given the pre-season nod
to capture the state crown, came into
the game as a six point underdog, but
emerged highly successful. The
greasy-hipped Jones ran circles around
the Plainsmen all night, rolling up
183 yards rushing. Jones was herald-
ed as one of the finest halfbacks ever
to plant his cleats in Plainsmen soil.
ln the first quarter of play, Pellow
passed to Crites who raced 86 yards.

Eleven golf hopefuls strolled onto
the links at Meadowlake Golf Course
March 14 to officially open the 1955
golf season for Enid High School.
The golfers, under the direction of
Coach Paul Geymann, possessed hopes
of bettering last year's excellent score
of 6 wins to 3 losses in regular play.
When the dust had cleared from a
few practice matches, Charles Swartz,
Jimmy Wright, Ed Bullard, Earl
West, James Gammon, David Sneary,
Charles Gasaway, George Ragan,
Phil Pratz, Ralph Rogers, and Ron-
ald Stewart had made the team.
Charles Swartz was the only return-
After much eager anticipation, the
team met their first foe, Phillips Uni-
versity, at Meadowlake on March 17.
Starting the season with flying colors,
the locals romped over Phillips by
the score of 8M to 3M. Charles
Swartz emerged low stroker.
March 25 found the confident
EHS golfers at Stillwater. The local
linksters returned home with their
second straight victory. The score:
7 to 5. Charles Swartz again came
out with the lowest score.
Battling a stiff March wind on
March 31 at Ponca City, the home-
town boys suffered their first defeat
in three starts. The score: 6 to 9.
April 4 saw the locals defeat
visitors from Stillwater for the second
srtaight time, 7M to ilk. Charles
Swartz, a continual standout on the
team, again marched out with the
On April 7, at the Oakwood Golf
and Country Club course, the EHS
lads, led by Charles Swartz, Earl
West, James "Pug" Gammon, and
Jimmy Wright, proceeded to bury a
Mid-State foe, Oklahoma City Cen-
tral, by the one-sided score of 13M
to 42 . A
On April l 1, journeying to Black-
well, locals continued their winning
ways by defeating their hosts 10 to 2.
Outstanding play was turned in by
all members of the team.
The Enid High School squad de-
feated Ponca City in their second
meeting on April 14. The match at
Oakwood saw the locals come out on
top with the score reading: llw to
The usual schedule of play was
high-lighted by the Mid-State Con-
ference Tourney at the Oakwood
course. The defending champion,
O.C. Classen, advanced as the top
team. Classen was closely pressed by
second place Enid. Jim Gardner of
Classen emerged as medalist with a
total of 150 strokes for 36 holes.
On April 21, the local linksters
experienced their second defeat. O.C.
Central, avenging an earlier Enid vic-
tory, defeated the locals at the Lin-
coln Park course. The score: 13M
to 14M .
Coach Geymann's crew traveled to
the Oklahoma City Country Club
April 19th to meet the challenge of
Casady High School. The EHS boys,
defying all opponents, made fairly
easy go of Casady High. The score:
ll to 7.
When your reporter was asked to
hand in his account of the 1955 golf
story, the local lads had three more
matches to play. On April 25, they
met Blackwell at Meadowlake. They
played in the state meet at O.C. Lin-
coln Park April 27 and 28. Their
final match was with O.C. Casady
High at Oakwood.
The golf team had played an out-
standing season so far with seven
wins and two losses. But by continu-
ing the excellent play, the boys were
sure to finish the season with flying

Starting off the 1955 baseball sea-
son, the Enid Plainsmen journeyed to
Tonkawa to play the Tonkawa Jun-
ior College in a practice game on
March 10. Bobby Atkinson, promis-
ing sophomore hurler, started for the
"blue and white" and did a fine job,
giving up only two hits and no runs
in the three innings he pitched, At-
kinson was followed by Robert
Conklin, Ronald LaPorte, and soph-
omore Bob Holmes, all of whim did
good jobs, while E. H. S. went on
to defeat Tonkawa 16-4. Backing up
the four hurlers was an experienced
ball club with six returning lettermen,
Terry Ingram, Don Weldon, Bob
Davis, Robert Conklin, Ronald La-
Porte, and Walter Spaid.
Next, the Plainsmen took on the
Garber Wolverines and set them
down by a 15-7 count with Atkinson
again starting and followed by La
Porte and Holmes. E. H. S. got ll
On March 23, the Plainsmen trav-
eled to Garber for a return game.
This time, with Atkinson and Conk-
lin pitching, the team was defeated
4-2, collecting six scattered hits off
Bob Adams, Garber's ace.
Moving into their first conference
game with a record of two wins and
one loss, Coach Provost's boys played
Capitol Hill on March 24. Bob
Holmes, the sophomore left-hander
was picked to start the game. Holmes.
in his first starting assignment, did
a creditable job in holding Capitol
Hill to a close 3-2 victory. The
Plainsmen could manage only three
hits off the Redskin hurler, while
Capitol Hill got only five off Holmes.
Hurting the Plainsmen most were
costly errors in the seventh inning
which enabled Capitol Hill to score
the tie-breaking runs that won the
Evening their conference record on
March 28, the Plainsmen nine de-
feated Classen 4-3 behind Bob At-
kinson who gave up three runs in the
first inning, but settled down to shut
out the Comets the rest of the way.
Steve Meitler led the five-hit attack
with a solid double to left field and
two line drives to the outfield. Enid
fought gamely to come from behind,
scoring two runs in the last half of
the first inning, with single runs in
the fourth and fifth to assure the vic-
tory for Atkinson.
On March 29, E.H.S. played the
Alva Goldbugs at Alva. Unleashing
a 16 hit barrage, the Plainsmen scored
17 runs while Alva could score only
four times against La Porte and Gail
Crawford. Gary Bloom connected
for a home run and Donald Weldon
got two doubles to furnish power for
the Enid high team. In the big sec-
ond inning the whole team scored be-
fore there was an out made, and
scored 11 runs before the inning was
over. Semrad and Spaid each got
three singles in the five inning game.
The Shawnee Wolves came to
Enid on March 31 to play the Plains-
men nine in a double-header. On a
muddy field, Enid high defeated
Shawnee in the first game 5-2 with
Robert Conklin starting and relieved
by sophomore Jerry Keeling, who
pitched a two hit game for six in-
nings. The team got five runs on
five hits and committed no errors in
the seven inning contest.
ln the second game, Enid put out

"La--dees and gentlemen, we now
present the fifth annual water show,
"Under the Big Top." Hurry and
grab your seats for the greatest show
With these words Ringmaster
Judy Grove introduced the first act
of the water show circus held on the
nights of March Zl and 22. The
"Entree" was directed by Emagene
Jenkins and Carol Cashion. All of
the Aquaettes participated in one of
the splashiest acts of the show,
No circus is complete without a
band! So, to the stirring John Phil-
lip Sousa march, 'Stars and Stripes
Eoreverf' the Aquaette circus band
marched in under the direction of
Deanna Spickelmier. The drum ma-
jor was Emagene Jenkins, and the
band members were: Jerrie Pinker-
ton, Jo Ann Templeman, Jo Al-
bright, Merlene Duckworth, Deanna
Spickelmier, Linda Robbins, Gerri
Link, Janet Wever, and Kay Kauf-
One of the most graceful features
of any circus is the aerialists. Car-
olyn Walters and Shirley Smith in
a breath-taking performance demon-
strated the skill and precision it takes
to be one of these performers.
Come to the Side Show to see the
freaksf They're the best ever: you'll
remember them for weeks. Some of
these strange looking creatures were

written by Carolyn Walters and
With much skill and agility, the
acrobatic act, under the direction of
Jo Ellen Barnes and Terry Torloett,
went through a series of somesaults,
surface dives, ballet legs, and twists
and turns to illustrate the ease of the
circus gymnasts. The circus magician
was Virginia Merritt, and the other
acrobats were Jane Johnstone, Ann
Hayes, Jane Carey, Suda Bobbitt,
Rose Etta Durbin, and Carol Cash-

fore good comes, there is always some
bad: and the bad in the princess's
life was her mean old stepmother,
the witch. Feeding Snow White the
poison apple was Kay Meibergen as
the witch. However, as said before,
all ends in bliss: and Snow White
and Prince Charming do live hap-
pily ever after. Prince Charming was
swum by Ann Hayes, while Snow
Vy'hite was Emagene Jenkins. Jane
Carey and Jo Ann Templeman were
directors of this fairy tale.
An added attraction at any big
top is the clowns. Merlene Duck-
worth and Nancy Earnest, dressed up
in polka-dotted suits, rolled out Giv-
ing a splashy, fun-filled performance.
The trained animals came next on
the agenda. Beautiful white prancers
with red bridles and braided tails
performed in grand style under the
whip of their trainer, Jo Ann Tem-
pleman. The horses were Carolyn
Walters, Suda Bobbitt, Jane John-
stone, and Virginia Merritt.
The waltzing cat appeared next in
the center ring for the animal act.
Nancy Earnest did the honors.
Amid a series of barks, and yelps,
the dogs trotted out to go through
their routine which ended with a
jump through a hoop. The four
panting pups were Jerrie Pinkerton,
Jo Ellen Barnes, Marilyn Bell, and
The animal act was under the di-
rection of Nancy Earnest and Kay
Slipping gracefully into the water
among the swaying palms and soft
music were Ann Hayes, Linda Rob-
bins, Shirley Smith, Nancy Earnest,
Kay Meibergen, Jo Ellen Barnes, De-
anna Spickelmier, and Carolyn NVal-
ters as the hula girls. A so'o done by
Terry Torbett completed the beauti-
ful picture. Ciinnie Cieis and Ann
Hayes were the directors of this act.
The grand finale of the water
show was the crowning of the Aqua-
ette Queen. This year the queen was
Miss Carol Cashion, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Dale Cashion. Her attend-
ants were Miss Jo Ellen Barnes and
Miss Emagene Jenkins. After the in-
troduction of the candidates for
queen, who were the senior members
of the Aquaettes, the two attendants
swam a duet in her honor. Queen
Carol got on her royal float after
being crowned by the student council
president, Larry Long. The float in
the shape of a carousel was moved by

The long awaited May season has
now dawned, and the air is filled
with happiness and admiration as the
31st Annual May Pete begins, fea-
turing the Class of '55 preceded by
the lovely Queen of May and the
handsome May Herald.
In a beautiful spring evening Gov-
ernment Springs Park sets the scene
with the dignity of the arched bridge,
the colorful waterfall, and momen-
tarily a procession of flowing for-
mals, surrounding the reflecting lake.
As the strains of Hail. Enid High
School drift out into the distance,
the Queen of May, Mary Beth Don-
nell, and Herald, James Ciammon,
appear followed by their court of
attendants and escorts. Allie Steers,

ENIDY ENIDT ENIDY
Let 'er Rip is the traditional
E.H.S. yell. At each game the Brav-
ettes could be heard yelling it in sup-
port of their team.
This year the Bravettes attended
all the games from football to bas-
ketball to baseball.
The Bravettes took buses to three
out of town games. The first out of
town trip which was taken was to
Norman, the second trip was to Clas-
sen for a basketball game, and the
third trip was taken to Ponca City
for a baseball game.
During the half-time of the Enid-
Stillwater football game the club col-
lected S304 for the Oklahoma Medi-
cal Research Fund by passing con-
tainers through the audience. This
was the largest amount collected in
the state in this manner.
At one assembly the girls sold
"Beat Lawton" tags to arouse inter-
est in the Enid-Lawton football
game being played that night.
For the crowning of Judy Grove
as Football Queen by Terry Ingram,
co-captain, the Bravettes formed a
pennant with the band forming
JUDY and playing Hail Enid High
School as Judy was driven onto the
field with her attendants, Carol Cash-
ion and Phyllis Huffman. Judy was
presented a bouquet of roses and a
sweater with a big UE" on it.
Phyllis Huffman, Basketball
Queen, was crowned by Ronnie
Wedel. The Bravettes formed an
aisle to the archway covered with
flowers. The band played "Because
of You" as the attendants, Cherrel
Nall and Carol Cashion, walked out
with their escorts. The Bravettes then
knelt and sang "Mr, Sandman, Bring
Us a Queen." As Phyllis was escort-
ed onto the floor by Larry Long, the
band played "Stairway to the Stars."
Following the traditional kiss Jerrie
Pinkerton sang "Sweet and Lovely"
in honor of Phyllis.
Carole Shelp was crowned Spring
Sports Queen by Bill Athey between
the first and second game of a dou-
bleheader with Shawnee. Charles
Ranck, representing the swimming
team, and Bob Davis, representing the
baseball team escorted the attendants,
Jeaneen Collier and Jo Ellen Barnes.
onto the field.
The club presented one assembly
this year during basketball season.
Members of Bravettes sang a pep song
and did a dance to 'fThere's No Busi-
ness Like Show Business." The Cap-
itol Hill team was characterized and
sung about in a song entitled "This
Ole Team". Junior girls dressed as
elves, portrayed each of the team
members. The assembly was high-
lighted by an original 'Acan can"
dance by the members of the "A"
The Bravette officers for 1954-
l955 were: Deanna Spickelmier,
president: Jerrie Pinkerton, vice-pres-

The good ship E.H.S. Speech De-
partment was launched November 4
as 29 bright eyed speechsters began
the voyage to Norman for their first
contest of the 1954-55 season.
These eager hopefuls reached their
destination with great expectations of
the day's activities. Of the nineteen
students entering into interscholastic
competition, nine received superior
ratings and ten received excellent.

ln the Legislative Assembly, Ben
Harrison was elected speaker of the

mere sixteen delegates. The limit was
four. The other twelve representatives
were merely observers with voting
power. The return voyage home was
a pleasant one, with a bright outlook
for future trips.
The second voyage was a short
one, from the standpoint of distance,
as we just went to Phillips Universi-
ty. But the crew fared quite Well with
Pat Phillips winning first in extemp,

paigning began. Campaign signs and
slogans were seen all over the campus.
That evening the elections were held,
then the girls were entertained by a
quartet of gospel singers. Finally, the
anxiously awaited election results
were announced. Pat Phillips had
been elected Governor! The auditori-
um became an uproar.
The offices of the other girls from
Enid were: City Treasurer and City
Election Board, Karen Crowley:
Justice of the Supreme Court, Deanna
Spickelmier: Clerk for the Senate and
City Commissioner, Jerrie Pinkerton:
and runner-up for State Representa-
tive and member of Oklahoma Li-

On Wednesday the legislatures
were organized, the House of Repre-
sentatives by State Representatives
John A. Camp and George Nigh, and
the Senate by Senator Don Baldwin.
At noon an impressive citizenship
ceremony was conducted by Mrs.
Alfred Rice, President of the Ameri-
can Legion Auxiliary, when the
colors of the two parties were joined
and the girls became citizens of Girls'
State instead of party members. That
evening the Inaugural Dinner was

inaugurated, The oath of office was
administered by N. B. Johnson, the
Chief Justice of the State Supreme
Court, and an address was given by
Johnston Murray, former Governor
of Oklahoma. After the Inauguration
a reception was held in honor of the
newly elected officers, which was at-
tended by Girls' State Citizens,
alumni of Girls' State, and visitors
from all over the state.
Thursday morning, the Senate and
House of Representatives held both a
separate and joint session. That after-
noon, Miss Margaret Behringer, an
attorney from Oklahoma City and
Judge John A. Brett, from the State
Criminal Court of Appeals organized
the courts, which then held a mock
trial. The girls had a picnic Thurs-
day evening, then every girl partici-
pated in her city's stunt for Amateur
On Friday each city selected an
outstanding citizen: then these girls
were presented medals before the
entire assembly. The last class of the
week, held Eriday afternoon, was en-
titled "The State of Oklahoma". The
girls told about the industries, parks,
and other features in the cities they
came from. Then at 6:30, dressed in
their party dresses, the girls loaded
into the busses to go to Norman for
the Girls' State-Boys' State Dance.
The band that played for the dance
was composed of citizens of Boys'
State. At ll:30, the girls reluctantly
loaded into the busses again to start
the return trip to Chickasha.
Saturday morning, the last mornf
ing at Chickasha, two girls gave a
summary of Girls' State, and each girl
received a certificate showing her
achievements while at Girls' State.
Also the director for 1954, Mrs. R.
L. Parker, announced that Pat Phil-
lips and Barbara Marcum would rep-
resent Oklahoma at Girls' Nation.
After singing the song "Oklahoma"
as no other group could ever sing it,
and retiring the colors, the girls said
goodbye and started for home.
The girls from Enid caught a train
back home where a welcoming com-
mittee was waiting for them. The
five girls from Enid feel deeply in-
debted to the American Legion Aux-
iliary and their individual sponsors
for making it possible for them to
participate in that wonderful week
at Chickasha, and they only wish
that every girl in Enid could have

A tragic three-game road trip at
the first of the campaign got the
Plainsmen off to the wrong foot in
season's action. Enid lost in an over-
time to the Guymon Tigers 48-46,
and then went westward to the Bor-
ger, Texas Invitational Tournament.
The host Texans walloped the
Plainsmen 82-55 to hand Enid its
second loss in as many outings. In
the consolation game at the Texas
roundball tourney, the Capitol Hill
Redskins dumped Geymann's boys
48-38. The Lubbock quintet had
defeated the Redskins in first round
play, but lost to Borger in the finals.
The Plainsmen finally got into the
winning groove by taking successive
wins over the Ponca City Wildcats
by a 66-36 verdict and over the
Vifoodward Boomers 77-52. Skarky

of the two contests to pace the team

Enid was upset by a surprisingly
strong team from Blackwell 6l-52
on the losers' home court. That de-
feat was later avenged on the Black-
well floor, 54-49.
On Dec. 2l, the Plainsmen avenged
a second of their defeats by blasting
Ctuymon 65-50. Skarky hit 27
points in the game, his season high.
In conference action. the Plains-
men won 5 and lost 5. They topped
the Shawnee Wolves twice, 69-57
and 82-57. Enid registered two de-
cisions over the Central Cardinals of
Oklahoma City with 64-44 and 64-
4l verdicts. The fifth loop win was

The Plainsmen could not seem to
make a dent in the spotless record of
the towering Classen Comets as they

particular event. Enid had qualified
eight men for the State track and

had been called off due to bad weath-
er, were rescheduled for Wednesday.
May 4, the week following the state
Due to the fact that the annual
went to press before these last two
track meets were held, no account
can be given as to their outcome.
The Aggie Relays, held in Stillwa-
ter, brought to a close the 1955 track
season. It had been the job of each
individual to prepare himself for the
stiff competition in his event. Al-
though track is less publicized, its
training and conditioning can be con-
sidered the roughest of all sports.
Congratulations to Coach Paine and
the Plainsmen track squad for their
fine representation of Enid in Okla-
homa track circles.

Enid High School played the Cap-

wrestle for the Conference lead. Both
teams had 4-l records going into the
contest. Bob Atkinson, bothered
with a sore arm the week before, went
the entire route for the Plainsmen and
lost by a score of 5-3 in the sixth
inning. The Plainsmen had come
from behind in the top of the sixth

The day following the Alva game.
the Plainsmen journeyed to Norman
to play the Tigers in a double-header.
The first game went until the ninth
inning with the lead see-sawing back
and forth. Then in the last half of
the ninth, Norman scored a run and
took the victory. It was one of Enid's
worst games with the team making
five errors. The loser was Ronald

also made the fielding play of the
day when he raced in on a low line
drive, dived for it, rolled over, and
came up with it fast in his glove.
The Plainsmen played Ponca City
and Garber on Monday and Tuesday
preceding the Norman tournament.
In both of these games, Enid had a
lead but lost it in the final innings.
