You will always r ememb e r and love the school song. As freshmen school may not
have meant very much to you. 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.
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.
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

In sincere admiration of your mag-

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.

Friday September 16. The Ft. 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
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.

Panthers. The Panther s came out on the long end of the 13-7 score. It put the Panther
Dist. 5-A record at 3-1 and kept them in contention with McCarney for the crown.
Fumbles were a big factor in the game, as were penalties. Each team fumbled and lost
the ball three times. A San d e r s on fumble came at a crucial point late in the game which
halted a drive and put the Panthers on their final burst to victory.
Sanderson scored in the first quarter with a pass. The s e cond quarter was only about
six minutes long. The final score was Sanderson 7-Ft. Stockton 13.
