PUBLIC RECEPTION ROOM
The design and floor plan of the new high school building is complete in every detail to carry out
the school program in its entirety. The building structure is simple, substantial, and functionalg yet
in its simplicity the building is very impressive.
One of the main highlights of the building is the auditorium, designed to seat nine hundred people.
Artificial plants add to the splendor of the decor in the auditorium.
Another asset of the building is the inter-communication system which enables the administration to
keep in contact with the students and teachers.
The well-equipped classrooms are characteristic of the school program to make this school a greater

The modern facilities of Gatesville High School classrooms offer each student an opportunity to de-
cide for which vocation he is best suited. Each boy is given an opportunity to increase his agricul-
tural skills in the ag department. The honiemaking department affords each girl a chance to leam
the techniques of sewing and cooking. All students who are interested in the field of science are
enabled to advance with the aid of the efficient science laboratories. When research material, good
hooks, or a quiet place to study are necessary, the student needs only to go to the library. The book-
keeping room caters to the needs of students interested in commercial fields.

The L'American Flag" was raised for the first time over
the new Gatesville High School building at the Armistice
With the raising of the flag for the first time
over the Gatesville High School building, the
students entered into a whirlwind of activities.
The dedication ceremony, with the Senior Class
acting as host to the citizens of Gatesville,
launched the year's activities. The Fall Se-
mester, highlighted by football games, was full
of school spirit. Slogan posters and banners
adorned the corridors. Pep rallies, street paint-
ings, and down-town parades, with each stu-
dent participating, exemplified the true spirit
of GHS. The annual 4'Homecoming7, bonfire,
with the presentation of lVlr. and Miss Flame,
culminated all sporting activities. The festive
occasion climaxing the football season was
the annual Football Banquet.
The dedication of the new building fulfilled the dreams of the citizens of Coryell County.

The Football Banquet, highlighted by the presentation of the letter-jackets, added to the enjoyment of the activities.
Painting the streets, a downtown snake dance, and the pep rally were each typical events held on Thursday nights
for the home games.
The Thanksgiving Dance, sponsored by the FTA at the Country Club, added to the 'Turkey Spirit" of GHS.
The animated spirit of GHS continued throughout
the basketball season. Little time was left for studies
with the excitement of Christmas parties and pro-
grams. The foyer, with a beautifully decorated tree,
boosted the festive holiday spirit. The stirring pro-
gram presented by the Junior Class made everyone
realize the true meaning of Christmas. The holidays
were a welcomed relief for the students and teachers
alike. Then came the days that each student had
dreaded all year-Mid-Term Examinations!

Because time plays such an important
part in the life of a student at GHS, we
have selected as our theme for the 1960
Crescent "Now is the Time? High
School is a time for gaining knowledge,
Winning friends, and taking part in so-
cial activities. It is also an hour of
decision and dedication to our future
In the 1960 Crescent we have tried to
illustrate throughout its pages how you,
the students, use your time-Time of
which you never seem to have enough.
'4We are hut minutes, use us well,
For how weire used we soon must tell.
Who uses minutes has hours to useg
Who loses minutes has hours to lose."

We, the Students and the Administration of Gatesville High School would like to
express our humble appreciation to the donors of the gifts which enhance the beauty
of our school. We are deeply grateful to those who thought enough of youth and the
leaders of youth to present these gifts. We want you to accept our THANK YOU!
MR. C. W. McCLELLAND
We, the yearbook staff of 1960, think it is only fitting that we dedicate this, the
1960 Crescent, to a person whose efforts warrant such honor. Because of his love for
music, his friendliness to the students, and his congenial personality, surely no one
could be more fitting and deserving to receive such a dedication than Mr. C. W.
Now ls the Time .
only ci moment of youth
A school is made up of as many personalities
as there are individuals in that school, there-
fore it would be impossible to give honor to
each and every individual. ln this section the
most outstanding students, those who have
truly excelled, are pictured. They have
been chosen for their radiating friend-
liness, winning smiles, enthusiastic outlook
and leadership abilities. The honors that
G.H.S. bestows on its students are Best All-
Round Boy and Girl, Homecoming Queen,
Class Favorites, Sweethearts, Beaux, and
Whois Who. These personalities presented
portraying courteous attitudes, good citizen-
ship, and high scholastic standards are sym-
bolic of the individual personality of Cates-
ville High School.
Lost, somewhere between
Sunrise and Sunset,
Two golden hours, each

N o reward is offered,
for they are lost forever.

things that matter
Organizations in G.H.S. play an important role in the
development of the students. These organizations teach
the students something they could never learn from
books-cooperation With others. Clubs also place re-
sponsibility on the student and tend to develop leader-
ship qualities. They also help to break the monotony of
school life and incite interest in outside activities. The
various clubs are organized with the purpose of helping
a student become a well-rounded individual. All the
organizations are an important part of school life at

HONOR, RESPECT, AND INTEGRITY are just if
a few of the qualities contained in a member of the
Student Council. These members of the GHS council
maintain high regard and respect of the students
through the various services which they render to
the school. Better understanding between the stu-
dents and the administration is achieved by this in-
fluential organization, since each class is equally
representedg and the members are free to discuss
the problems of each class. v

activities which are enthusiastically supported by
the student body. As an added honor this year the
Student Council was in charge of the dedication of
the new high school building. By the competent
manner in which they carried out the program the

the high position which they occupy in the smooth
operation of this school.

FOR YEARS THIS organization has been a living backbone of the spirit of G.H.S.
It is this organization which heralds the Hornets as they rise in pep rally to sing
their fight song. It is this organization that accompanies the fans while they sing
the Alma Mater. Through this organization the members learn how to cooperate as a
team, not only as an organization.
TEAMWORK IS A keynote in the day-to-day activities of this organization-Team-
work between the staff of leaders in the band and those who support the bandg
teamwork between parent and student. At most any time teamwork in the Gatesville
Hornet Band may be found.

last year when a deluge of uletterjacket wearersv
swarmed the school. Club members are identified by
shining black leather sleeves and swaggering gray
backs. These boys are representative of the good sports-
manship, good manners, and good times which follow
our athletic teams throughout their activities.
IT IS A healthy organization and every letterrnan is
proud of his membership.
Charlie Shepherd, Buddy Mitchell and Jimmy Gooch read
"Gooch Makes All-State Honorable Mention."
A FLASH OF color, a clap of hands, a snap of fingers,
the vibrant cheerleaders of GHS give a familiar yell
saluting our Hornets. This action may be found every
Friday afternoon during the football season in the gym
where the cheerleaders are in charge of the weekly pep
rally. Again this same action will repeat itself as the
group leads yells with the Hornet Band in downtown
Gatesville. Before the day is over they will be seen
"at it again" as they encourage spirit at the game.

THROUGH THIS ORGANIZATION boys from fourteen to twenty-one years of age preparing for farming learn
among other things how to conduct and take part in a public meeting, to speak in public, to buy and sell cooperative-
ly, to solve their own problemsg to finance themselvesg and to assume civic responsibility. The foundation is built
upon leadership, character development, sportsmanship, cooperation, thrift, scholarship, improved agriculture, organ-

These "slaves" are earning their freedom by performing a

ANCIENT ROME WITH its influential customs, its
famous statesmen, and its ambitious spirit is brought
to life by the appreciative members of the Cens Togata.
The monthly meetings of this nationally affiliated

Latin songs presented by the members.
THE ACTIVITIES OF the Gens Togata are highlight-

the members, clad in Roman togas, spread interest in
Latin throughout the school.

"There are two ways of coming close to poetry. One
is by writing it, and the other is by reading it"-
Robert Frost. This same idea may apply to the
Crescent Staff and their attempts at writing copy
and making layouts for the yearbook. First they write
the copy, next, the sponsor, Mrs. Oran Bates, reads
it-the staff members are required to revise the
written copy. This writing and rewriting is only one
of the tasks a staff member experiences while working
on a book such as this. There are hours of time and
work put in on tasks such as drawing layouts, align-
ing copy, raising money, interviewing students and
teachers, searching for ideas, having fun. Only a
person who has worked on a publication project such
as this will understand and appreciate the finished
book. True, the members of the Crescent Staff work
hard and are often tired by their efforts, but these
efforts bring a reward which will always be remem-
bered. This reward is not in the form of a book but
in the delight and happiness they experience when
at last the book is published and distributed to the
student body. This is the honor that comes from being
a member of the annual Staff A typical day in the Crescent Staff room!

Gatesville's Parent-Teacher Association plays a big role in promoting good relations
between teachers, parents, students, and the general public. These interested parents are
indispensable in the organization of such a complex business as our school.

the principals of the three schools, and Mr. McKamie-plan a program of activities for
the year. Some of these activities are a chili supper, concessions at Homecoming, Educa-

Now Is the Time.
Emotions of many natures are found and revealed in
the life of G.H.S. as disclosed through snapshots. One
finds these contrasts in emotion in the following pages
of 'lsnapsfi Joy may be found in the crowd as the
Hornets push over for another touchdown contrasted
with sorrow as the Hornets miss district co-champion-
ship by one game. Seriousness as shown in the patriotic
program presented by the speech class is contrasted by
the foolish participation in the donkey ball game.
Formal and informal sentiments are represented at
the banquets and honor dinners as well as the informal
parties so well known of G.H.S. Pride and regret can
also be found creeping into the life of students at Gates-
ville High School-pride in a high grade or an honor
Wong regret for wasted time.
Our yesterdays follow usg
They constitute our Life,
And they guide character
And force and meaning

increasing business .
As the clock of time ticks off another school year and
another Crescent is published, you the reader, must
stop to realize that the success of an annual does not
rest entirely upon the Crescent Staff. The Advertisers
and Boosters truly make the difference in a successful
or unsuccessful annual. These businessmen show
through their unselfish contributions the spirit of co-
operation. Without the loyal support of the Crescent
Boosters and Advertisers, you would be unable to enjoy
this annual. We, the Crescent Staff members wish to
extend to each of you a heart-felt "Thank You.'7
There can be no

GATESVI LLE SAVINGS AND LOAN
A YEAR AGO . . . the beginning of our Crescent story
. . . selection of new staff members, editors, and business
managers brought renewed interest for the 1960 Crescent.
Spring activities were surging-the senior play, junior-
senior banquet, western day, father-son banquet, mother-
daughter tea, junior sock hop, and graduation.
BEFORE WE KNEW it, it was May . . . There was a feeling
of sadness and anticipation among the student body-They
were leaving the old high school building which held many
fond memories-Then in September they were to move into
one of the most modern, well-equipped high school build-
IT WAS a hot summer . . . Work continued on the new
high school building. Some of the students were busily
engaged in sporting activities, social events, some were
even working at various jobs.
THEN IT WAS September again! A new high school build-
ing awaited the student body! There they were 114 gawk-
ing freshmen, with lost looks on their facesg 110 sopho-
mores groping blindly from one class to another, 113
juniors picking up 'Gloose endsv to prepare for their final
high school yearg and 80 seniors realizing for the first
time they would soon be facing the future on "their ownf'
WE LIVED FROM Friday to Friday-thrilling to cheering
crowds, marching music, and outstanding plays on the
gridiron. School interest continued to rise in assembly pro-
grams, the FHA Carnival, and banquets . . . Then it was
Christmas-two short weeks-followed by mid-terms.
SECOND SEMESTER AND registration! Students vowed
they would buckle down to get the most out of their classes.
Then basketball, baseball, track-all the spring activities
were in full swing.
ONCE MORE GATESVILLE HIGH SCHOOL had been
named one of the outstanding schools of the state!
AND NOW OUR final shipment for the 1960 Crescent.
Our Last Word ..
We and our senior co-workers-Nelda Barton, Virginia Bradford, Betty Brown,
Anita Coward, Jeanne Cummings, Charlotte Derrick, Becky Donaldson, Renee Dyess,
Mary Lynn Galbraith, Donald Green, Sherry Lawrence, Mary Margaret Nesbitt,
Mary Schaub, Margie Sims, Pat Sims, Golda Smith, Cynthia Summers, and Pat
Wehring-wish to express our appreciation to the student body, administration,
advisors, and boosters for their invaluable support, encouragement, and cooperation.
There also goes a vote of thanks to Mr. Prince and his photography club, composed
of James Pfeffer, Joe Jones, Dickie Moreland, Sam Huey, Charles Fisher, and Troy
Johnson. To the junior members of our annual staff, who played an important part
in the financing of the CRESCENT by selling spirit ribbons, we give credit where
credit is certainly due.
We also would like to express our appreciation to our understanding and inspiring
sponsor, Mrs. Bates.
The above mentoned were indispensable in our having ready for you-your 1960
Your Business Managers,
