We, the entire Bear's Tale staff of 1952-53,
began in the fall to create a volume which we
hope in days to come will recall pleasant and
happy memories of the fellowship, oppor-
tunities, good times, and delightful incidents
received in the halls of G. H. S. a
We have striven to make this book artistic,
distinctive, and a true representation of the
high standards of Gladewater junior-Senior
May our work be justihed and our purpose
accomplished in this record of the happiest
years in our lives. n

This year in the 52-53 edition of the Bearis
Tale we are striving to publish in a professional
manner a yearbook Worthy of our school. We
are doing this entirely with the resources and
equipment at hand, and entirely through the ef-
forts and skills learned in Gladewater Schools.
The pictures were made 'by staff members of
Bear Facts and Bearis Tale and reproduced in the
High School Printing department by our stu-
ydents. We hope when you receive your book
z that these statements will l1Ot be an apology but
L We wish to thank the faculty, administration
and student body for the co-operation and assist-
ance given in publishing the record of this school
ln conclusion, editing your book has been a
igratifying and interesting experience as well as
gan extreme honor which I will always remember
Qof my own days at Gladewater High School.

U M wi Q
Dalia Williams, Superintendent
Our founding fathers knew it would'l:e necessary to produce a people with
free minds and respect for the rights of others if our type of democracy
was to function. To carry out this desire they developed the great system
of free public education. There could be no other reason for having an
czlucation system in every constitution of the forty-eight states, paid for
out of public funds with pupils compelled by law to attend.
Our schools have donated a larger part of their program to citizenship edu-
cation. More recently we have come to realize that you can not make good
citizens solelv by doing the "three r's" and talking good citizenship. Good
citizenship is a way of behavior. lt is a matter of action. Active things
you learn through action. Active things require some sort of laboratory
approach and citizenship ' no exception.
One of the go s fi this school is to provide laboratories of
good living. Ou 1. activities point in that direction. Itrust that each
of our students . ke flxll advantage of these opportunities. Surely here
we have or w' h a new vision of our obligations as citizens in a great
e nation. t
- George Lipscomb, Principal
I ould like to express our sincere appreciation for the high type of
'ork you have done, the splendid attitude you have maintained, and the
ubstanial contribution you have made to a broader, richer and more means
gful school life.
Here at Gladewater High School we believe in warm and enduring friend-
ships. happy social and co-curricular activities, wholesome recreation, sbund
scholarship, and hard work. These are some of the fundamentals of a good
We want you to know that Gladewater High School is better because of
you, and that it is our earnest desire that you will be a better citizen because
of Gladewater High School.

G.H.S. from the air
Our Cafeteria is one of the finest in the State. It is a non-
profit organization seating over,180 people. Between 400 and
450 students and facultyi members are served each day. The
food is of the finest origin and an wholesome, balanced .meal
is served to every patron.
The Agriculture Building, the newest structure on the
campus, was built in 1950. It contains the most modern
equipment available. The boys have every convenience and
facility that they need in the type of training they receive.
The building is composed of an oflice, study hall, and shop.
The Fine Arts Building, located on the' northwest part of
the campus, contains the Bandshell, the strings room and the
choir room. From it echoes the music of the finest band, the
finest choir, and the finest orchestra in the land.
...W-.Y i....., we.v.v..-
Our building is one of the most beautiful in the state. It sits upon
the highest hill in Gladewater and can be seen for many miles around.
The tower of the building rises above all the derricks, buildings and
towers that dot the landscape. The building itself contains approxi-
mately forty-five classrooms, not including the offices, auditorium,
gymnasiums and book and storage rooms. The building was completed
in 1937, and has seen many students enter and leave her halls.
The tower is one of the most striking scenes in this section of the
country. During the Christmas season, an immense cross is hung from
the top and can be seen as far as six or seven miles away. The tower
itself can be seen from Big Sandy, nine miles from Gladewater.
The swimming pool was purchased from the city to encourage the
students to develop better swimming habits. Each year the Physical
Education classes swim at the end of autumn and at the beginning of
spring. During the summer, courses in swimming, diving and life-
saving are given to everyone desiring them. X
The park area contains the track field, baseball, and softball
fields. The softball field is lighted so that games may be played at
night as well as during the day. The new track was only completed

The 1953 edition of the Bear squad will suffer the loss
of sixteen fine football players, nine of Whom were starters,
Possibly the greatest loss will be in the offensive back-
field department, where such men as Neal Williams, Jerry
Lancaster, and Frank' Stewart will be missing. The defen-
sive backfleld will suffer, too, from the loss of three fine
players, Marc Stewart, Bobby Ford, and Bobby Loonan.
Graduation takes two top offensive ends this year. They
are Coy Gammage and David Jirlian. Defensive end Hugh
Radney also will graduate.
The middle of the line was hit hard as Jimmy Watson
and Charles Sims, guards, and Glen Gaines, center, graduate.
Two tackles who saw lots of action, B. G. Irby and
jimmy Williams, will be missing next year. Defensive line-
man Ronald Hoenig and Dennis Rhinehart also played their
last year for the Bruins,

for a rough time as three Gladewater boys, Freddie Smith-
erman, No. 42, Donald Audas, No. 40, and Hugh Radney,
come in for a tackle.
-When two boys like David Lloyd and Don-
ald Audas, No. 40, pile into an opposing ball-carrier some-
thing is bound to pop. In this case it was David's helmet
i strap. This action took place in the Gladewater-Cleburne
game. Neal Williams, Bear safety, comes in at the left of

The Gladewater Bear basketball team had a better than average
record for the 1952-53 season. The varsity won 14 of 27 games played
against rugged competition.
In pre-district play Gladewater copped the consolation spot in
the Nacogdoches Tournament and went to the Hnals of the Longview
Tournament before bowing to Longview, 48-38. At this tournament
David Julian and Neal Williams were named to the all-tournament
team. Williams was also named the tournament's outstanding player.
The Bears were also the runners-up in the Kilgore Tournament.
The first half of district play saw Gladewater on top all' the
way as they won four games and lost one. The second half, however,
was a different story. The Bruins couldn't seem to get into the win
column as they lost four straight beforewinning the last game of the
Although Williams, who was high point man for the Bears through-
out the season, was the only Gladewater player named to the all-
district team, Jerry Lancaster, Sherman Kennedy, Eddie Smitherman,
and Julian all played good during the season.

George Stansell and Coy Gammage are shown taking practice
starts. These boys run on one of the relay teams of GHS. Below, we
see them practicing hand offs which help to make better starts. As an
old saying, "Practice'makes perfect."
Pictured are the mile relay team, Jackie Buckelew, Freddie and
Eddie Smitherman. These boys started out with a great team, but
misfortune overtook them early in the season. After winning the
mile relay at Mt. Pleasant, Freddie became ill and stopped the wheel
from rolling. We wish that next year this spoke in the wheel may
be replaced to have another great team.

George Stansell, a sophomore, had a V hard time on the high
hurdles, but next year, we hope that he will follow the footsteps of
Ed-ig,,Smitherman, who is pictured on the left. Eddie won third at
the Dogwood Relays, second in the Regional Meet and will participate
in the State ,Meet.
r Jack Harris ran track for the first time this year. He has a good
stride, and next year he will probably take the 880 in District.
Jack Buckelew, a sophomore, ran the 440 run and on thc mile
relay team. He appears to be one of the best 440 men that Gladcwater
has produced in recent years. He won third at Regional.
Ronald McKay, a senior, ran the mile, winning fourth in the
Jimmy Taylor shows us the way he won second at the District
-et in pole vault. Jimmy got off to a late start because of a foot
ury he received in playing Cowboys and Indians. If the Indians
not get too rough next year, we hope you will get to travel to
Harry Stracener, a junior, had a hard task trying to fill the shoes
of Billy Byrd, who tied for first in the high jump last year at the
State Meet. Harry won first in District in this event. Harry also does
part of the pole vaulting for GHS. In these two events, he won sec-
ond in pole vaulting at the District and at the Regional Meet. Along
with the rest, he will travel to the State Meet in Austin.
Coy Gammage, a senior, has participated in track for the past
three years. This year he ran on the mile relay, put the shot, threw
the discus and broad jumped. In District, Coy won first in discus,
fourth in shot, and first in broadjump. Taking first in discus, broad-
jump and second in shot, he was high point man in the Regional
The chances tor a good season for the Bear varsity baseball team
appeared good. Coach Jim Canter had a host of experienced players
from which to choose his team. On hand were two returning pitchers,
Royce Blackburn and Jimmy Joe McMinn, and All-District men
Benny Campbell and Neal Williams. Other lettermcn back this year
were Sherman Kennedy, second base, Glen Gaines, third base, and
Donald Audas, outfield.
An over-abundance in line-up changes and injury to Campbell
hindered the Bears from the start of the season.

Tom Whittaker has worked tor the Gladewater Public Schools since 1942.
He takes care of the football stadium and practice fields. This is only part
of his job for he does the laundry and many other odd jobs. You can always
rely on him to have a clean towel to dry off on after a hard day's workout
or when your socks get so stiff they will stand on their toes, you may count
Cn Tom for a clean pair.

The 1952-S3 tennis team opened the season successfully by quali-
fying four members for the Regional Meet. They are John Moore,
Bill O'Brien, Ronald McChesney, and Joyce McEachern. These mem-
bers are the same that won Regional and went to State last year. The
twins, Gretchen and Linda, were defeated in the semi-finals this
year at District by Marshall, the defending champions. Mr. E. C.
Pennington has shown his ability in coaching tennis by producing
Regional winners ever since he has been at Gladewater High School.
John Moore will be the only returning leccerman next year as all
the rest are Seniors. The tennis team works out all the year round
on their four new' tennis courts. Many scheduled matches are played
with such teams as Highland Park of Dallas, Byrd of Shreveport,
Athens, Kilgore Junior College, Lufkin, etc. These matches are played
in addition to th? District, Regional, and State matches. Results of
the State Meet are not printed because the annual deadline had to be
met before this contest was completed. . '
N John Moore, the only non-Senior on the team,. started his success-
ful tennis career as a Freshman by placing 2nd in the District Meet
and 2nd in the Dogwood Tournament at Palestine. Last year as a
Sophomore, he won 2nd in the Dogwood Tournament again. He also
won District and Regional, thus earning the right to play in the
State Meet at Austin. At State, he reached the semi-finals by defeating
Harold Williams from Odessa and then was beaten by James Schmidt,
who went on to win the State crown. This year john breezed through
District and is expected to go on to State again. One of John's ambi-
tions is to bring a State tennis plaque back to G.H.S. and if he keeps
on with his present brand of tennis, we are sure that he will succeed.
Bill and Ronald, ,the boys' doubles team, made a very impressive
showing last year by winning District and Regionall They ran into
bad luck at State and drew Baytown, defending champions, in the
first round. Baytown won and went on to win State again. Bill and
Ronald won 2nd place in the East Texas Tournament at Tyler this
past summer. This year they repeated as District champions by de-
feating Tyler in the Hnals. They participated in the Regional Meet at
Gretchen and Linda Hackett succeeded Mary Ellen Watson and
Elizabeth Waggener as the girls' doubles team. They won District
as Sophomores, but were defeated at Regional by Bryan. Last year
as Juniors, they reached the finals in District. Marshall beat them in
three close sets. This year, although handicapped by Gretchen's leg
injury, they gave the defending champions, Marshall, a battle before
they were beaten in the last set of a three set match.
Joyce McEachern started her tennis career as a Freshman by win-
ning the Dogwood Tournament at Palestine. As a Sophomore, she won
District and Regional. At the State Meet, she was defeated in a three
set match by Prudence Brown of Amarillo. Last year, Joyce again won
District and Regional. She reached the semi-finals at State by defeating
Diana ,Thomas of Amarillo. Cathy Campbell of San Antonio beat
Joyce. Last summer, she won the East Texas Tournament at Tyler.
This year, Joyce won District for the third straight time. She is ex-
pected to win Regional and to- attend the State Meet again.
Joyce McEachern won the Regional championship for the third
time by defeating the Lufkin representative, 6-l, 6-0. '
Bill O'Brien and Ronald McChesney successfully defended their
Regional title by beating Jack Selman and Ray Beavers from Lufkin,
QJOIEIII Moore defeated John Waak from Lufkin, 6-3, 6-0, 4-6, 7-S,
to win Regional for the second time.
. Mr. E. C. Pennington coaches the tennis team in addition to ta
ing commercial subjects. He has been coaching tennis at G.l
since. 1949. That year his girls' doubles team, Mary Watson
Elizabeth Waggener, Went to State. Ever since then Mr. Penn
ton has had representatives at State. He works out with the tearr
year round and coaches them while they play. He ,gives much
his free time to tennis and should be commended for such effort.
Coy Gammage, having qualifed for the state
track meet in the discus, shot, and broad jump
placed fifth in the discus with a heave of 149
feet and 8 3f4 inches, seventh in the broad jump
with a jump of ZZ feet 41,fZ inches,and eighth in
the shot with a heave of 47 feet 5 5f8 inches.
Harry Stracener participated in the high jump

Kathryn House scored a third quartile in the General Aptitude
Text in the 1953 National Honor Society Scholarship Contest
given recently. Kathyrn's score was 50. Scoring 44, Katherine
Morrison camein second amongthe five students from GI-IS'who
took this test., Both girls were over the 'average score. 4
This General Aptitude Test was given to 7, 893 members of the
National Honor'Society--all highly selected seniors planning to
enter college in 1953--in 1, 971 participating schools on March
24, 1953. Its purpose was to select the highest ranking students
through a nationaltest that would determine general competence.
It tested the best ofthe best because all members of the National
Honor Society must have at least an all B average or its equiv-
alent to be eligible for membership in any chapter of the Nation-
al Honor Society. Therefore, any rating--even in the lowest
quartile--must be regarded as a relatively high score when com-
pared withthe probable test score of the 538, 667 seniors actu-
ally enrolled in these 1, 971 participating school seniors.
