1 1 1 1 1 4 1 mmawonn It is the hope of the entire staff of this, the first edition of THE HERD, that it will permanently record the wonderful memories and events of this past school year . . . It is the purpose of any yearbook to record the deeds and events of the students and teachers, who during the years embody the spirit of the schools of America. YOU, the students, faculty, and friends of Giddings High School, have made this edition a pleasure for us to record, because of the many achievements in the various activities, whether scholastic, literary, social, or athletic achievements . . . In the years to come, this yearbook will keep alive the memories gathered during the past year. The future years should and will bring new faces and changes to the scene of the Giddings Schools, but there shall be for us, the record of the friends we knew, the things we did and the mem- ories that are so dear to us . . . We wish to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to the fine citizens who make up our school board, our superintendent, Mr. Don B. Slocombg Mr. Everett Schmidt and Mr. Henry Lawrence, our principals, and last but not least, YOU, the students and faculty of the Giddings Elementary and High Schools for making this yearbook the success that it is. Also, may we tell of our special gratitude to the many merchants and individual citizens of Giddings, who made it financially possible for the publication of THE HERD, by sponsoring the various pages and sections of this yearbook . . . THE STAFF This page sponsored by PTA 2 ,....,..l DE DICATION As in evidence of appreciation for the many years of service to our school . . . for the sincere friendliness, genuine humaneness, and for the countless little things that have added up to a lifetime of generous unselfish thoughts and deeds of kindnesses to us all, the staff of 1957 should like to respectfully dedicate this edition of THE HERD to: ANNA AND LOUIS GAEKE This page sponsored by PTA 3 , l 1 l 1 CULT AND Z ff r F :l Z-Zig., ,-Z.,-"""'i-n "- A , 9-- .,.- Q - 4-1-Ziff: ' .:,?i USZA , 7'7w,S Pao! 5'AoN'.S'a2f0 By Pqazis' -Snap 4 -,--.qc-1-1 ,,,.4-.-- -11- '-3-1'1T -,......

Gia 5.4 .JJi5fory In 1945, fourteen little bright-eyed tots who graduate this year started their careers in Giddings Elementary School. They were Johnny Christiansen, Maury Crow, Mary Ann Fischer, Elaine Hoffman, Nancy Joiner, Twila Kieke, Margie Kreumcke, Harold McDonald, Loretta Mantzel, Earl Mueller, Ruby Redkey, Milton Tate, John Tonn, Charles Weigelt and Joe Dan Wendler. Miss Frances Daily was our teacher. Miss Rubie Rousseau was the lucky C?J teacher who taught us in the second grade, as Rosario Gon- zales became one of us. Elroy Geisler joined the class in the third grade, although John Tonn, Rosario Gonzales, and Earl Mueller didn't like it anymore and moved away. Mrs. Ellie Vanderworth was our teacher. Mrs. Vanderworth couldn't bear to part with us, so she was promoted to the fourth grade too. Nancy Joiner couldn't make up her mind whether to stay or not. She moved to Elgin, and in a month she moved back. Miss Allie Mae Brown assumed control of the boisterous fifth grade class. Fred Wolf became one of us and Nancy Joiner lived in Elgin seven months this time before moving back. Erwin Fischer, Rosario Gonzales, and A. C. Hill joined the well-behaved OJ class in the sixth grade. One teacher couldn't stand us all day, so we now had four, Miss Marjorie Henry, Miss Irma Avrett, Miss Martha Brogdon, and Mr. Darrell Blackman. Miss Avrett, Miss Brogdon, Miss Henry, and Mr. Blackman were also given the pleasure of teachingxus in the seventh grade. Here the class was increased by sixg Aubrey Boswell, Karen Fricke, Carol Jaehne, and Ruth Meier. Earl Mueller and John Tonn decided to rejoin theclass and help drive the teachers insane. Elroy Geisler came back to join the class in the eighth grade. Miss Mervyn Offield was our teacher. OUR FRESHMAN YEAR! Gee, wasn't it exciting? We really expanded that year. The parochial school gave us fourteen new members, Robert Faske, Herman Jaehne, Lavine Jenke, Arthur Kurio, Larry Lerche, Floris Mutschink, Edward Reinhardt, Dorothy Schroeder, Milton Schroeder, Harold Schumann, Clifford Teinert, Cara Lynn Vahrenkamp, Franklin Weiser, and Carolyn Zscheck. Three students, Helen Medack, Marjorie Mertink, and Benny Mitschke came from Serbin5 Vicente Gonzales and James McPaul came from Paigeg from Fedor came Raymond Wendland, and Joyce Jurk came from Warda. Richard Roche joined the class all the way from Nashville, Tenn. Miss Bess Black, Mrs. Tom Cherry, and Mr. Bill Brademan were the bewildered sponsors. Lois Naumann joined the class our sophomore year, while Donald Newman arrived just in time to help decorate for the Junior-Senior Prom, "In a Jaoanese Tea Garden." Now, here we are in our senior year. Along with it comes a happy yet sad feeling that we will not be here next year. Senior rings, invitations, robes, and the Senior trip. We are glad Bobby Glenn joined us this year from Cameron. gharillis certainly go to our wonderful and understanding sponsors, Mr. Willard, Mrs. Cherry, and Miss ay attox.

The 1956 season for the Giddings High School Buffaloes is a story of rags to riches. The Buffs under their new head coach Boone Jackson, suffered many injuries and had plenty of hard luck thrown in and went down to defeat in their first three games. It was then that the Buffs finally had their squad intact for the first time in the se ison, and began to roll. They won the last seven of their regular scheduled games, crushing Bastrop, fthe only loss the Bears sustained all seasonl, 20-12, and rolling over the four district foes without giving up a point. The Buffs edged Lockhart 20-19, stopping a fourth quarter rally by the Lions after having lead at one time in the game by 20-7. Next, the B iffs began to create state-wide notice by defeating a very strong and high-scoring Navasota by a 19-13 score. The Buffs trailed 13-6 and later 13-12 before pulling it out of the fire with a fourth quarter 68-yard drive. In the quarterfinals the Buffs met the rugged Brady Bulldogs, a team which shdwed itls championship ability by taking advan- tage of the breaks and Buff errors and piled up a 33-0 lead at halftime. The Buffs fought back hard to play the Bulldogs on even terms in the seconl half, but the season ended for them that night as Brady went on to become finalist and take second place in Class AA football. The success of the 1956 season goes to a tremendous comeback spirit of the team and the wonderful job of coach- ing of Boone Jackson, Bill Michalka, and Truett Mobley, and the scouting of Henry Lawrence. If there was one thing that made the '56 team go, it was because they didn't give up on themselves after the first three games, though many of it's followers did.
