The Panther Staff of 1955 invites you to follow the panther through the pages of this yearbook, r e m e m b e r i n g all the wonderful events of the 1 954- '55 school year at F . S. H . S. Order Of Boot, M. ministra tion CL asses Oavorites Or pa niza tions Sports ocia f Svent s Sent or Si dvert I sements 32)J, nation This yearbook is dedicated to a group of boys who have done much to boost the school spirit of F.S.H.S. They have worked f a i t hf ul 1 y through the heat and the cold, in the spring and in the fall. They worked all afternoon, andoftenlate at night. They gave upmany of the pleasures of the fall term in order to have the best possible teamwork. They suffered hardships and disappointments. They experienced the joy of victory, the sorrow of losing. To these boys and their coaches--the Fort Stockton Panthers--we gratefully dedicate the 1955 Panther. 4s AJ IUDV:!J.G.

C ommanc L S, 'prints Mr. Larry Skylstad, is now serving his first year at F.S.H.S. He is the sponsor of the Players Club and had made many needed improvements on the auditorium when it burned. There were several successful plays directed by him this year and we know that he will be a great asset to F. S. H. S. 75I A flash fire ignited curtains and stage scenery in the Ft. S t o c k t o n H i g h School Auditorium. The fire spread into the ceiling and caused between$15, 000 and$20, 000 damage. A short in an electric sanding machine being used on the stage was apparently the cause of the damage. The large concert Grand piano was stored in an adjoining room and escaped destruction. The small piano, which was on the stage, was completely destroyed . 76The new stage lights installed only last fall were completely destroyed. But the dimmer board was saved. Damage was estimated at $2,000. This unsightly accident hampered much activity in the school as well as the community. The fire put an end to all plans for the Senior Play as well as other various speech activities. 772V a ma tics This picture was taken from a scene in the Halloween Play. It was entitled "The Intruder." Pictured from left to right are Sam Baker, Gwen George, Kay Clarke, Carla Jean Smith, Nancy Hillin and David Lowell. Above is pictured the cast of "The Long Retreat."
