Often you said to a playmate "Let's pretend., . Even though those games are in the days of long ago, you may still play "pretend" games sometimes in the privacy of your own thoughts. You may pretehd that you are Prince Charming on your way to meet your lovely princess, or you may pretend that you are a football hero crossing the goal line for a touchdown or a Cinderella at the King's ball, or you may pretend that you are the proud graduate receiving your long-awaited diploma. Many of the events of the past year may have been forgotten, but by pretending with us through the pages of this book, you will remsmber and can relive many pleasant and humorous moments and events. So join us now, and "Let's Pretend................" m emoriam The students of F.S.H.S. lost a very dear friend in the death of Mary Frances Reeves Walker on April 24. To all who knew her, Mary was a friend who was sweet, kind, considerate, and dependable. In her years at F.S.H.S. she was very active in the school activities. She was a member of the band, she was president of her class, and she was treasurer of the Student Council. She was always ready to help and to support all of the activities. Many of the upperclassmen will remember especially the Sophomore assembly program which she planned and directed. In our memories Mary will always be smiling and happy and gay. 3MRS. SALLIE BUSTER THE SPIRIT OF ENGLISH This phrase characterizes a member of our faculty who inspires her students in advanced English classes to think, speak, and write more accurately and effectively. She is a teacher whose work will be appreciated more and more by her students in years to come. To a dedicated teacher, Mrs. Sallie Buster, we of the Panther Staff proudly dedicate this yearbook."But the old woman only shook her head and said, 'Ah, dear children, who brought you here? Come in and stay with me. You will come to no harm!'" 51956-57! We may not have won championships in athletics and we may not have received state wide recognition in the field of literary contests, but this school year has been a very successful one. We have had an interested and cooperative student body and a capable and hard working faculty. Our student activities have been successful, and we have won our share of contests during the year, but most of all, the year 1956-57 will go down as a very successful year in the classroom. We always strive to improve, and according to achievement tests, we improved most in the classroom during 1956-57. Congratulations for a job well done and best wishes for continued success. JAMES G. HUCKABY SuperintendentCongratulations to the Panther Staff for capturing the highlights of this 1956-57 school year. We have had a very good school year. This year's senior class is one of the best academically equipped classes we have ever graduated from F.S.H.S. Our faculty has done an outstanding job, and naturally I would not trade this student body for any other. It has been a real pleasure to work with all of you of Fort Stockton High. May each and everyone of you have happy and fruitful lives. BEN HARRIS Principal 7 ar J of cation LEFT TO RIGHT: George Pina; Edward Winkler, asst, sec.; Raymond Holstein; J.

As a result of the increased enrollment and the crowded conditions in the Fort Stockton Public Schools, the board of education was very busy during the year planning a building program to relieve the crowded conditions. As a result an intermediate school building is under construction. Quite a few items were added in the way of equipment by the board of education. A new pick-up was bought for the agriculture department, and new furniture and a clothes washer and drier were bought for the homemaking department. Some classrooms also received new furniture. One of the most pleasant duties of the board for the year 1956-57 was the acceptance of another gift from W.R. Weaver who gave his working interest in eight wells already owned by the school plus four additional oil wells to the school this year. The Fort Stockton Independent School now owns sixteen oil wells, all of which were given to the school by Mr. Weaver. ERNEST F. TRIPLETT Tax Assessor and Collector.MRS.

The cheerleaders were Jake Barker, Fred Bradley, and John Hardaway--Junior Freshman team, and Jerome Crumpton, Floyd Bradley, and Robert Dennis--Senior Sophomore team.

Registration was held Friday morning in the girls' gym, and an assembly for the Exes was held that afternoon in the auditorium. Billy Moody was the Master of Ceremonies. Friday night the football team played a spirited game for a 12-7 victory over Wink. At half time the Homecoming Queen, her duchess, and ladies-in-waiting were announced and presented on the football field by Mr. Harris, Mr. Huckaby, Mr. Harral, and Mr. Tyson. The Queen then reigned throughout the remainder of the game. After the game, all were invited to a dance at the Country Club. This brought an end to another year of Homecoming. Dancing was enjoyed by all. Catching flies, Judy and Linda? 101a ristmas 2), ’a nee Why so serious? What'cha lookin' at, Jimmy? Who has on the hat? Everyone enjoyed the dancing.

The guests were greeted at the door to the North Pole by a seven foot snow man. To the left were found Santa's helpers frolicking gaily about his workshop, while the Odessa College Orchestra sent dreamy music through the icicle-and snow-bedecked hall.

The chuck wagon gang served good old ranch fare of cokes, sandwiches, potato chips, and cookies to the hungry wranglers. .5'avoritei ’ 2 « nee "You gotta have heart, all you really need is heart." That could very well have been the theme of the Favorites' Dance held at the Community Hall on February 16, 1957. The hall was decorated with red and white crepe paper and red hearts were hanging on the walls. A red glow from above fell on everyone as he entered. Red punch and heartshaped cookies, which were served, really set the mood. A huge red heart stood at one end of the hall, and it was there that the Favorites were announced and presented by Coach Carter and Mr. Mayfield.

After everyone had eaten, Tony Tracy, the Junior president, welcomed the Seniors. Following this, Jerome Crumpton, Senior president, delivered the response. Reverend Robert Hooks, the speaker, spoke on "Preparing For Marriage." The prophecy was read by Franklin Duncan, and Don Diebitsch read the will. The menu featured tomato juice cocktail, tossed salad, turkey, cranberry sauce, green beans, baked potato, hot rolls, apple cobbler, and iced tea. A bouquet of garden flowers centered the head table. The dance, held after the banquet at the large Community House, featured a flower covered-bridge at the door, arching over imaginary water. A "rock wall" decorated with figurines encircled the walls. White picket fences entwined with fresh roses surrounded the bandstand and tables. The banquet and dance were enjoyed by all, including a few worn-out Juniors who decorated until 6:00. Another will--another laugh. Where's Thomas, Kay??

Colored striped awnings over the tables gave a sidewalk cafe effect, and flower carts scattered about the room added to the effect. A spotlighted Eiffel Tower with a fountain in front was a highlight in the decorations. "French" paintings were scattered about the walls. Punch and cookies were served by three "French" waiters, and the music was furnished by the Sul Ross Collegians. A typical scene at the Prom. Flowers, flowers, everywhere.
