The Gaston Independent School District has progressed 'in
twenty-five years from a one-room frame building to a beautiful
terraced campus of over forty acres that includes six brick build-
ings and seven wooden buildings. The school is set upon a high
hill overlooking the Tyler-Henderson highway. It is referred to
as 'fthe Hill" by most patrons, efres, and students.
The Gaston Common School District was created in 1925 when
Miller and Mount Hope schools consolidated to form a centrally
located school. The land for this new school was a nine acre
plot donated by Mrs. Irene Gaston, and for this reason. the
school bears her name.
The discovery of oil on September 2, 19.30, provided funds
for the purchasing of more land and for the construction of the
present school plant.
On August 28, 19.21, the Carlton Common School Di-strict con-
solidated with the Gaston District, and on December 2,2 of the
sanze year the Gaston Common School District No. 36 was given
the title of Gaston. Independent School District. The Buford
Common Sehool District eonsolidated on October 15, 1934: and
on June 1, 19.16, the New Harmony School District was added
to Gaston Independent School District.
The growth of the present school plan-t, begun in 1931. has
never actually ceased, for the school is progressing from year
to year. Each year brings new equipment and facilities. Plans
were made this year, 1956-57, for the construction of a new
athletic field house.
Gaston Public Schools con-tinue to progress yearly, and the
evaluation of the sehool at the present time is probably over
a million dollars.

J OU RNALISM
Five years on the newspaper staff, and two years on
2 annual staff have made Tommy Stackey the outstanding
:dent in publications his senior year. He has been on the
nnal staff as clnb and orts editor, bat his great re-
snsibility this year hassgeen the DEVlL'S DELIGHT.
Lmmy has been editor this year, but in order to reach this
sition he has served from junior sports editor in the
rhth grade to his present position.
Tommy has a concise, clear and correct journalistic style
writing. He is able to help any student with his report-
? problems and is also capable of handling with skill the
write, copy, headline, and make-np problems of the pitb-
ation editor. He placed fourth in the regional writing
atest for journalists last year at Kilgore. He is now
inning to enter the field of religions journalism. The
IS publications have been better because of the work
Boyd, although a junior, becanse of his ,enthusiasm and
cellent record in algebra and plane geometry has made
r himself a place in Whois Who.
Boyd realizes the importance of mathenzatics in his
osen career of engineering and has found that mathe-
:tics offers him a rich opportunity for original investiga-
rn and discovery.
Jean is a challenge to fellow bilsiness students, and has
orved her skillful accoflnplishinent of bzasiness training in
r club work. Her pleasing personality, her sincerity, her
:asant acceptance of problems with poise, and her apti-
ie and persistence have 'won for her the honor she now
lds of Who's Who in business education.
Karen Duran has been an outstanding student in the
homemaking department for the past three gears. She has
eornpleted two szmimer home experiences and has been an
active member of the Gaston Chapter of FHA. Karen has
served as a member of the project and degree committees,
she is pianist of the local chapter, and she is president of
District IV FHA. She has acquired Junior and Chapter
degrees and is a candidate for the state FHA degree and
state OWCGY. Dae to her diligent efforts, her interest in FHA,
and the skills acquired Karen has earned the honor of ont-
standing student in the hornemaking department this year.
BOY'S PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Kelley has shown his ability as an athelete and leader
during his years here at Gaston School. He has taken part
in all sports, and was an outstanding football and basket-
ball player. He was selected as one of the captains of the
Red Devil Football team, and ranks in the supper part of
his class scholastieall-y.
An avid reader is a prime requirement for a to-ne student
of history, and Kenneth Rogers is the best example in Gas-
ton of this qualification. An intense curiosity for the hu-
man element in the story of our country is another necessary
quality. Kenneth, because he has both attributes, has been
chosen as outstanding in social science this year.
MERRITT GRAV ES
A willing and capable student, Merritt is efrceptionall
interested in the rarions phases of science. H-is willingnes
to spend the extra time and effort to understand the theorg
which is all important in carrying ont the practical aspect
of such a coarse, is largely responsible for 'winning the
honor. He has been at student of superior standing in ger
eral science, biology, and chemistry, a fact which has als
added to this honor. These a-chierevnents coupled with hi
ability in mathematics aiorrl him a fine opportunity in tk
field of science.

MARY MARGARET JOHNSON
GIRL'S PHYSICAL EDUCATION
During her years 'in high sehool Mary Margaret's abilities
in physical education have been observed and they cannot
go unnoticed. She is the typical student for zohom the edu-
cational psrofession is wanting and a, consistent "team
worker" who is pleasing to her classmates. Her interest,
her eagerness, her neatness, and her personcll enjofyment
of health, reereation, and physical education give the Whois

FULLBACK, Jerry Brian, and Halfback, Houston Brad-
berry, team up to put the Mustangs back for a loss.
Leveretts Chapel Lions by a
score of 8 to 7. This game was
played on the night of September
7 at the Gaston stadium. Con-
tinuing in the same line, the
Devils treked to Center the next
week where the Rough Riders
trampled them by the count of
25 to 6. The third straight loss
occured when Jacksonville's In-
dians and the Red Devils met in
a hard-fought skirmish, with the
Indians coming out on top by
the narrow margin of 13 to 12.
The following week the Devils
downed the Sabine Cardinals
59 to 7 in the first win of the
"G, H. S. beat the Wildcats"
was the cry which rang through-
out the halls of Gaston High as
the Devils prepared for the on-
coming game with London. The
fired-up Red Devils pulled a sur-
prise attack on the over-confident
Wildcats, and the score was tied
13 to 13 until, in the last quarter,
a Wildcat broke loose and ran all
the way for a touchdown. The
final score in this exciting game
was 19-13, in favor of London.
A Homecoming crowd greeted
the conference play as the Devils
won over the Carlisle Indians
19 to 14. This game was played
Saturday night, October 20. But
the next week the chances for
the Devil's third straight district
crown were given a severe shock
when Chapel Hill's Bulldogs beat
the Devils 12 to 7. In a "do or
die" situation the next week, the
pepped-up Devils journeyed to
Lindale, where they scored 1.6
points and held the Eagles to
only 2 points.
Overton was Gaston's next
victim as the Devils "tromped"
the Mustangs 64 to 13. Then,
the next week, the Red Devils
defeated the Troup Tigers by a
score of 21 to 6 to take the Dis-
trict 17-A crown!
"Beat who? Kerens!" Pep all
the way was with the Devils as,
November 23, 1956, they jour-
neyed to Tyler where, in a bi-
district contest with the Kerens
Bobcats, Gaston emerged vic-
torious by a score of 21 to 13.

1 major perform with their umbrellas.
Summer rehearsals opened another eventful season for this
year's Gaston High School Band. Under the direction of Mr.
Alexander Hamilton, the band began rehearsing the first part of
August. This year the band presented a series of twelve half-
time shows to the football audience. With emphasis on precision
drill, the shows also included intricate twirling routines, major-
ette dances, and a fine selection of jazz and swin-g numbers.
The band had the honor of going to Dallas to the State Fair,
where they had been invited to play a concert. They also went
to the homecoming at Stephen F. Austin State College in Nacog-
doches. The marching season was climaxed by the marching
contest in Longview on the night of November 27, 1956, where
they received a Division II rating.
