Sophomores wish that they w e r e seniors, Juniors begin to think that they soon will be "Mighty Seniors. " Seniors begin to feel sad over the fa ct they are about to graduate and leave all of their friends at dear F. S,H, S, As you come closer to leaving Fort Stockton High School, all the good times that school represents will mean more to you. Though you will leave F. S. H. S.' as a student, you will always remember the days spent here--the happy events and the sad moments. As you go through this yearbook and review the year, treasure it forever because th e s e are some of the happiest days of your life--your School Days of 1955-'56. Sincerely yours, Joan Whitman Editor P, S. Lest we forget-- Live for dear old Stockton, Fight for colors true, Floating high above us We will promise--white and blue-- To reverence and honor you, Loyal and together, we our best must do, Live for clear old Stockton-- She lives for you. ui 'i X' gf if In 1951 two students entered Fort Stockton Public Schools and very quickly made a place for themselves. In the summer of '55, when polio was raging everywhere, the s e two students were victims . Today they are making abrave fight against this dread disease. They typifya wonderful example of the cour- age it takes to m ak'e the best of what one has and what one is. In sincere admiration of your mag- nificent effort and courage, we dedicate to you, Philip and Kay Clarke, this 1955-'56 Panther, DEDICHTIUH N6 Z IN13' TRATIUN 5 Xiff...

A I f"T The Board of Education, the school and community suffered a great loss in the passing of John Vickr ey. There are many words with whi c h to describe Mr. Vickrey but the most fitting description' is "he was a good man." He was never too busy or too interested in personal affairs to say a pleasant w or d to all who came in contact with him. His sudden passing was a great loss to all.

Stockton Panthers opened their 1955 football s eas on in Crane against the Golden Cranes. The Cranes had won a previous game before the Panther tilt. After battling to a scoreless standoff through almost all of the first half, Crane got the scoring underway with only two minutes left in the first half. Adams of Crane drove across from the six yard line, but the conversion fa ile d. Crane, therefore, went into the lead at the half 6-0. The Cranes roared for two touchdowns in each of the remaining two quarters. The Pan- thers, however, were unable to push across the goal. The final score was Crane 33-Ft. Stockton 0.
