The last year, yes, this is the last year in old
F. H. S. The seniors one and all, think of this as
they go through the halls and in their classes.
Even so, the seniors of this year have upheld the
standards of our school. They have contributed musi-
cians to the band and chorus, and members to the honor
society, basketball teams, and all the other activi-
ties of the school. In most cases the larger part has
In their junior year they gave the first prom in
the school. Everyone said it was the best event they
had ever attended at Festus High School. Also in the
junior year a member of this class was chosen maid of
honor to the Basketball Sweetheart.
As sophomores they gave the annual freshman party
This, too, proved to be very good. During this year
they won a prize for the best assembly program.
Entering as freshmen they were a large and inter-
esting group. They withstood the taunts that are usu-
al for green freshmen.
And now has come the end of their school days to-
gether at F. H. S. But in the years to come,all thc
seniors will look back on thesp four years as the most
pleasant of their lives.
Tom is as noisy as a bass drum,
when he gets started you can hear things hum.

junior. They contribute their talents to track, band,
basketball, student council, honor society, chorus,
plays, and good

something of the history of the different organiza-

much in the lives of the students.

Vaughn and Harold Grey.
Wwillien Arnold, as we have seen

He was chosen captain of the team,
For his playing has seldom been surpassed.
Thinking clearly is his aim.
Can you give this boy a name? A
Fast on his feet and plenty of actiong
Yes, you're rightg it's our own Floyd Jackson.
By some of his friends he's called nLoose Joints,U
But we all know who makes the points.
Good old Bequette, he is always our betg
Raymond has not disappointed us yet.
Roger is handsome, there is no doubt.
As for personality, he's really a scout.
Although Griffin is not always playing,
Especially to girls, he'll always be slaying.
Franklin was an asset to the teamg
He played the games fast and clean.
To Coach Tynes, his name was nCurly.U
At basketball practice he was always early.
Lester Dean runs and slips right by
The boys from the other schools.
They think Lester's i dangerous nguy,u
But in playing ball he observes the rules.
Eugene Lucas is over six feet tall,
And as a player was certainly fine.
How he worked to get the ball!
When it comes to sports--he's right in line.
Charles Hubbard is a very fine mang
He is well liked by every fan.
He is the one with pep and grit,
Who keeps his head and uses it.
Who's that junior with all the pep?
Always on the mark, never out of step.
We all think he's quite a treasure.
Now, you know, it's Vincent Frazier.
nPut LeBoube in,n is our eryg
We all know Joc's a regular Uguy.n
On first team or second team, he doesn't care.
when it comes to basketball, hc'll always be there.

The Festus High School Tigers were anything but
rampant on the cinder path this year. Their showing
was in sad contrast to other years when the Black and
Gold flashed to victories in the County, Mineral Area,
and Cape Girardeau District meets. A large, but in-
experienced squad reported early in March. Cold weath-
er, rain and snow turned the city park into a quagmire
that hampered conditioning work. The track boys hope
that some day a cinder track will be built in the city
park so that they will no longer need to be norphansn
without a track. All meets now must be held at other
schools. Transportation difficulties caused cancel-
ation of many meetsg however, the Tigers took part
in three dual meets. DeSoto won a thriller 58 to 55 in
the first meet. Crystal City then outran the Tigers
755 to 575, and the Black Cats of Herculaneum blacked
out the Tigers 855 to 295. In the County Meet the
Black and Gold finished in the cellar for the first
time in a decade scoring only a meager l0 points. All
was not dismal though as the inexperienced squad gained
experience and most of the boys will return next year
Winners of major letters were Captain Lloyd Lucas,
Gordon Wheeling, Earl Elliott, Lester Dean, Charles
Hubbard, Charles Brewer, Bill Wood, Jack Harris, Clar-
ence Taylor, Norman Curtis, and Calvin McCrcary. Nu-
merals went to Wayne DeClue, Bill Maupin, Vincent Fra-
