We shall start with the sophomores since everyone has at one time or another gone through this grade. Every- one at Lamar will remember this first day, the odd and even room numbers, the time he got stuck with a partner at a Friday night dance, the time he had pressing and collecting wild flowers-all of these are primarily times of helplessness and frustration, and they typify the sophomore year. By the next year things become more settled, the worried look has now disappeared, as the junior will remember having memorized Mark Anthony's death oration, figured his grade averages and honor- point totals, and recited geometry theorems. But most important he can now give advice to eager-faced sopho- mores. At the end of the junior year are the many elections which serve to spotlight the senior leaders. This last year is one of logs, cosines, May fete predic- tions, Macbeth, and club formals. lt is a year of play and acceptance of responsibilities. The continual progression through Lamar changes very little from year to year. This first section Qicerns the individuals that make up the school. The following two show how these students first organize their abilities and then enter into various competitions. FACULTY SENIORS CLASSES 8 -57" 'ii . 'F -- ' fs ' ,NS Q... Q . 14 mini tr fi n ln 1937 the halls of Lamar were opened for the first time. That fall almost all of this year's seniors were just beginning their long climb toward graduation. Mr. William J. Moyes, the principal of the new school, was busy opening "the finest school building in Houston and the best equipped in the Southwest," as the Houston Chronicle had called it. Organizing the new school was no easy job, but Mr. Moyes had a record of service that readily qualified him for the position. He had taught at Allen Academy in Bryan for four years, and at Marshall Training School in San Antonio, where he had been co-principal for two years. From San Antonio Mr. Moyes came to South End High School in Houston where he taught English and Latin. From South End High School he was promoted to the principalship of Central High Cnow Sam Houstonl. There he served as principal until Lamar was opened. Mr. Moyes' sincere interest in the welfare of Lamar School and its students, his boundless enthusiasm for the success of his football teams, and his remarkable wisdom in guidance toward scholarship have made Lamar one of the outstanding schools of the Southwest. Mr. Jesse Madden, assistant principal, came to Lamar in the fall of l945. He brought with him a sense of humor, a keen interest in athletics, and a desire to help the students understand their problems and assume their responsibilities. He has aided Mr. Moyes in solving the problems of Lamar. l 9 Mr. W. E. Moreland Cseated at leftl, Superin- tendent of the Houston Public Schools, is elected by the School Board of which Mr. Ewing Werlein is president. Mr. Moreland's duties are many and va- ried. Under his leadership and farseeing vision the Houston School System has expanded rapidly and has attained an excellence in all fields of secondary education. Mr. .l. H. Wright Cstanding at leftl is Director of Personnel for the Houston Independent School Dis- trict. He is an active participant in all civic projects. He was for several years, assistant principal of La- mar High School and still has a deep interest in the welfare of the pupils themselves. Mr. J. O. Webb is the Assistant Superintendent of the Houston Schools in charge of the Senior High Schools. Mr. Webb is pictured at the left in his spaci- ous office on the first floor of the Administrative Building. Mr. W. J. Moyes Cat leftl has just placed two new football trophies on exhibit in the library. Football boys Dick Bintliff and Jack Carson ad- mire the Raymond Pearson Award which Lamar has received four times for winning the City Cham- pionship. The other trophy is the one awarded to Lamar by the lnterscholastic League, for winning second place in the State Big City Play-off. In an impressive assembly program Bill Chanslor ac- cepted these trophies on behalf of the team. Mr. Madden stands in front of sixteen hundred football fans at a "pep" rally and urges them to continue to support their team. Once a football coach himself, he gets great pleasure out of spon- soring the victorious Indians. Two of the yell leaders stand by waiting to say a word about the coveted Sportsmanship Cup which Lamar has won twice in the last four years. The Uffice Mr. Clay pulls the venetian blind cord and immediately the office is flooded with the sunlight of another day. Soon the voices of teachers are heard as they come down the hall toward the office. Thus at about eight o'clock each morning the activity begins slowly, and mounts steadily throughout the day to make the office always a place of accomplishment and confusion. A few minutes later the office will be filled with teachers who must "sign in" before beginning their day's labor, outside, the walk up to school is becoming more crowded, and soon the students will also be pouring into the office to add to the general confusion. The office staff and its assistants are constantly on the run looking for grade cards, blank admits, absentee slips, or selling football tickets, looking up where a student is that period, or carrying out any other whim a student might have. Executing their jobs with great proficiency and apparently no bothers at all, this staff is nevertheless glad to see three o'clock roll around. As the sound of the voices gets further away, the blinds again are closed, and another day in the office is complete. ans Betty Gray Sallie Smith Roaer Gilliam Pat Ev , , , . T ll Miss Ruth Taylor ln her sweet understanding woy Miss Taylor handles the job of being Mr. Moyes' secretary. Her patience in all matters has made her re- spected and loved by everyone. Besides her full-time job as secretary Miss Taylor is able to secure substitutes, supervise the cafeteria cashiers, and look after keys and supplies. Mrs. Edith Ferrell Being the school's registrar is no simple task, but with ease and a wonderful sense of humor Mrs. Ferrell handles her job with apparently no difficulties. No newcomer to Lamar's office staff, Mrs. Ferrell recalls the first day the doors of the school were opened. A list of her many duties would consist of interviewing parents and students about courses, mailing transcripts of records to colleges, and ranking the Senior class. Mrs. Alice Harrell This picture of Mrs. Harrell, Lamar's treas- urer and bookkeeper, shows her in one of her most arduous tasks, stacking, counting, and roll- ing the money from the lunch room. Mrs. Har- rell's books, in which she records the expendi- tures and all money transactions of the many school organizations, are neat, accurate, and very helpful aids to students who wish to refer to past years about financial difficulties. With her patience, willingness to help, and interest Mrs. Harrell has won the deepest ad- miration and respect of theientire student body. Mrs. Selden Leavell In the attendance office sits Mrs. Leavell, and around her continually busying themselves are her student office assistants. Because of her kindness and common sense the job of handling discipline problems has been added to the usual tasks of managing the book room, checking on absentees, taking phone calls, and delivering messages. In spite of her many duties Mrs. Leavell always has time to joke with the continual group of students that mill into her office for no reason except to have a good time. 5' cultq bifdf tory Principal-MR.

Herring, and Miss Helen Weinberg, teachers in the history, language, and industrial arts departments. MAA vom There are over fifty classrooms in Lamar, each one differs a little from the others. As a new sophomore enters one of these rooms for the first time, he is immediately impressed by many new features that Junior High lacked. He is fascinated by the clean, modern look of the Lamar class- rooms, and it won't take him long to discover the loud speaker system on the front wall, or the way three sets of windows may be opened by pushing out the lower one. However, the sophomore will soon take these first impressions for granted and begin to collect memories of a typical classroom scene. After he has graduated he will look back and remember the line that formed at the pencil sharpener one minute after the tardy bell sounded, the note that was being slipped carefully from one desk to another, his neighbor's aimless doodling on class notes, and finally the rustling of notebooks and lunch bags as the close of the period drew near. There are many classrooms in Lamar that don't fall in this category of "typical." These are the special rooms such as those used for sewing, cooking, and typing classes, from these, students often collect their most vivid memories. A view of a typical classroom in the eyes nf n cfnrfnnf A room that is rarely frequented by the boys is the cooking room on the third floor. Here the more domestic girls don their aprons, turn on the stoves, and fill the halls with aromas of their handiwork. Not all their time is spent here, how- ever, often the cooking classes have helped the home economics girls prepare teas and other entertainment. Pictured at the left is Mrs. Wil- son's fifth period class, which includes Nancy McAnelly, June McCarthy, June Ashen, and Jeanette Dyer. Speaking of filling the halls with aromas of their handiwork-the chemistry students on the first floor by the mere twist of a Bunsen burner can produce some of the most awful smells imaginable. With the fumes of hydrogen sulfide on their hands, and small pieces of red and blue litmus paper sticking out of their pockets the chemistry students are easily recognizable. ln the picture on the left Mr. Bailey prepares to test a bottle of hydrogen with a burning splint while his class stands braced for the explosion. One of the most beautiful and different rooms in the school is Miss Henderson's art class. Each Thursday the class' work is placed on the board without the artist's name, and in a semicircle the class judges each others work. In the picture Miss Henderson stands to the left discussing one of her student's creations. An English classroom can be one of the most interesting in the school. Miss Buchanan, who sponsors the school's creative writing club, is pictured at the left with her fifth period class. This class of seniors including Melvin Brochstein, Barbara Fitch, Jean Donaldson, Evelyn Brady, Bobby Grainger, and Rupert Johnson are listening intently while Bill Munnerlyn and Lenore Garrard play some records of Macbeth. These records from the library are part of an audio-visual edu- cation course which is one of the many modern teaching methods Lamar students are bene- fited by. anaar-9 Claw Ufficel-A President DICK BINTLIFF Vice-president SHIRLEY LOCKWOOD Secretary MARY GEN E JOHNSON Treasurer MARTIN SCHEID Lawyer JOHN SHUDDE Poet V JULIA ORYNSKI Most Popular Girl MERLE STRIEKERT Most Popular Boy DICK BINTLIFF Most Representative Girl SHIRLEY ARMSTRONG Most Representative Boy JOEL CARROLL Senior Cabinet PHILIP BLATT, JOEL CARROLL, JIMMY LOGAN, EVERLYN MCMILLIAN, TRAVIS MILLER, MERLE STRIEKERT, DICK BINTLIFF SHIRLEY LOCKWOOD, MARTIN SCHEID, MARY GENE JOHNSON une C'laAA Ufficem President: ROBERT CLEMONS Vice-President: BILL MUNNERLYN Secretary: B EVE RLY KEMP Treasurer: BEVERLY WARD Class Poet: JEAN FAIRCHILD Class Lawyer: P H I L BAKER Most Popular Girl: CAROLYN COY Most Popular Boy: BILL CHANSLOR Most Representative Girl: JULIA PICTON Most Representative Boy: DON OLSEN Senior Cabinet: MARILYN BECK JACK CARSON CAROLYN COY FRED DURRANCE SAMMY HAMILTON HELEN HEDLEY IRWIN JORDAN J.

Receiving the appointments was only the be- ginning, soon it was not uncommon to hear such announcements as "All seniors who haven't yet gone to have their Orenda pictures made are given an opportunity to go this afternoon." After unending complications such as ruined negatives, resittings, arranging a time for the football players, the section was at last completed to remain here as a permanent record of the I949 Senior class.

These words have become a permanent echo in the memory of every Lamar stu- dent by the time he is a senior. The school communication system has always been a thing of awe and fascination, for by the mere flick of a button over 1500 students can listen to you, and with the same amount of ease it is possible to tune in any one particular class. lt is no wonder that by two fifty each afternoon Mr. Moyes' office is cluttered with students waiting in line to make broadcasts. Here Henry Wilde and Larry Wrightsman make final preparations for an announcement advertising the Hi-Y Midnight Show. Grete Freund, Janet Gast, and Georgia May prepare an elaborate adver- tisement of Ladaka's "Twilight Twirl" while Johnny Miller gets the record player ready. l W'!z2i3QVL2Z1H.Jl'X Ya f1El'w-K-1-!tWA'QkQSS41iZZMv..,g.,. ..

Every day at three o'clock across Westheimer Road on about the thirty-three hundred block for the past ten years there has been a temporary delay in traffic. This is due to the stream of students who make a dash for the River Oaks Drug Store at the close of school. Here, in all the confusion they can muster, students meet, order cokes or ice cream cones, call their mothers, have yo-yo contests, and cause general commotion. Although a haven for students after school, the drug store is strictly "off limits" during school hours, and to be found here unexcused is a serious offense. Seen here after school are Carol Noble, Hammy Hill, Mavis Hardy, Allen Felts, Benny Hood, Carolyn Dickerson, Wilbur Sprague, and Joe Barto. 1949 Senior COTTINGHAM, ERWIN-Uunel lrari, Los Habladores, Christian Student Union, Office Assistant, La Cin- quantaine.

The conversa- tion at the beginning of the lunch period probably began with, "Do you really think Mr. Bailey will give us a test today?" or "l'm sure I flunked my Civics test." As the effects of the warm sun and soft comfortable gross began to get a hold, school was temporarily for- gotten and the conversation probably took a turn to, "l wonder if Jane has a date this Friday?" or "Did you hear about the special train to Fort Worth for the game?" But all too soon the bell will ring and with it will come thoughts of school and fifth period. 25 1949 Senior DORRANCE, GEORGE-Uunel Ramal, Junior Membership Chairman, '48, Frolics, Hi-Y.

The football team had left school early and were home resting, and out at the High School Stadium the cheerleaders began decorating the goal posts with bright streamers of red and blue crepe paper. To these students, who have always seen that the posts were decorated, this afternoon was no different from any previous one. The empty stadium still stood massively against a blue sky, the cracked ground was still hard, and the same colored boys were pouring lime on the field to mark the yard stripes. After the posts were decorated, the streamers waved and flapped in the wind, the cheerleaders walked over to the Junior High School Stadium and watched Lanier beat Johnston for the city cham- pionship. 1949 Senio FUNK, JOHN-Uunel, GADDIS, RUTH-fJan.J Frolics, Cherokee.

An even more familiar sight was to see this car bravely making its way down Westheimer loaded down with people. In spite of the "new look" in Fords that has since come into being, Bob Strawn's jalopy is still running smoothly, and each day has a capacity weight placed upon its small tires. This picture was obviously not taken during one of the days when it could be seen "bravely making its way down Westheimer." In the back doing absolutely nothing to help are Henry Wilde, Bill Thorn- ton, and Fred Durrance. Inside Don -Olsen registers horror, while Dale Fooshee scratches his head in complete bewilderment. lt is onlykBob Strawn who has faith, as he prepares to give it one more cron . 1949 Senior HERNDON, HUBERT-Uunel R.O.T.C., Sergeant.

"Mr. Bowden from Southern Engraving Company will be out tomorrow to take orders for senior invitations." Immediately some five high senior registrations became a den of steady buzzing as everyone exchanged his opinion with that of his neighbor's as to how many and to whom invitations should be sent. These announce- ments of graduation were tucked away safely along with diplomas and other keepsakes and will later bring back memories of three years at Lamar. Oscar McCracken, Joe Lamb, Roger Gilliam, Troy Whitehurst, Everlyn McMillian, Geyla Anderson, Shirley Lockwood, Janet Rich- ardson, and Dick Bintliff stand in line waiting to give Mr. Bowden their orders. 1 31 I949 Senior JONES, PATSY-Uunel Ladaka, Cherokee.

Y , ,,,,, Y As one leaves the cafeteria, there is a small room to the right that was once used for selling football tickets. This year the home economics department, under the guidance of Mrs. Sondel, has con- verted this room into one of the most interesting and badly needed places in the school. Now carpeted and furnished in green, this room has become a place where her students can feel free to came, have meetings, play games, und get away from the usual classroom.

By the time a student has reached the rank of senior, the home- room period each morning has become an accepted evil. lf seniors have learned nothing else in their three years, they have learned exactly how for they can stray from their registration in order to come shooting into homeroom just as the tardy bell rings. Then there is usually a wrangle with the registrar about getting an admit-u wrangle which probably will be interrupted by the loud speaker . . . "Good morning, this morning's devotional will be lead by " ln this scene of Mrs. Hyman's homeroom Janet Gost and Bobby Grainger stand in line getting admits signed, while Ronny Guinn dictates the six weeks' test schedule to Nance Fruit. Peggy Hammer on the first seat looks as if she's doing a little homework in sewing. 35 I949 Senio MONCURE, JOHN-Uanuaryj Ramal, Hi-Y. MONTGOMERY, MARTHA-Uunej Wapika, Haienonis.

"Oh, not mashed potatoes again!" or "Why don't they ever have fried chicken?" Either of these remarks is likely to be heard as students move along in the lunch line, looking from one hot dish to another. ln spite of their disparagements and appraisals, the stu- dents of Lamar can always count on a well-balanced hot lunch. After three years of visiting the lunch room once every day the seniors found a new addition last fall, a juke box. Much to the disgust of a few, but to the delight of most, the lunch period can now be spent in listening to one's favorite records. Ann Cooper, Ann Cline, Dorothea Bachemin, Pete Burch, Martha Dawson, and Beverly Ward are buying their lunches. 1949 Senio PONTIKES, GEORGE-Uunej "H" Association, Football Letterman, '48-'49, Basketball l.etterman,'48-'49, Base- ball Letterman, '47-'49, Hi-Y.

One day last November the whole nation went into a state of complete confusion for a presidential election, Lamar was no excep- tion. All day long study halls and civics classes listened intently as the roll-call of the states was read "every hour on the hour." During second period the classes heard the first decisive news--Dewey had lost his lead in California. By fourth period the school was listening to him concede the election, and was waiting to hear Mr. Truman's acceptance speech. Here in Miss Weinberg's Civics class two weeks later, seniors Melvin Brochstein, Norma Garnett, June Ahrens, and Tommy Jax study a chart on how to vote and compare it with a map showing how each state had voted in the past election. 1949 Senior' SELIGMAN, JOHN-Uunej Ramal, Student Council, '48-'49, Junior Cabinet.

This year the banquet was held in the Varsity Room of Ye Old College Inn on the thirtieth of November. After dinner the parents were invited to watch Mr. Moyes install the new members and to have coffee. At the right Larry Wrightsman and Louise Baker study the Arrow- head Cup which is awarded each year on class night to the most outstanding member.

Yime to 0 ani e 63 "There will be an important student council meeting this afternoon in Room 305 . . ." or "The C. S. U. will hold an important meeting . . ." Practically everyone at Lamar belongs to at least one of the school's numerous organizations and attends the always "important" meet- ings. These are the three divisions of organization at Lamar: the non-social clubs, the social clubs, and the R.O.T.C. S The most colorful and widely discussed of these is Lamar's ten social clubs. With the opening of Lamar in I937 the students were given a choice of having these clubs or a girls' pep squad like the other high schools in Houston. Since the choice was made, these clubs have done much to improve the school. The majority of the students are lucky enough to be drawn into a club when they are sophomores. The first two weeks of initiation are ones which are never for- gotten. lt is then that a sophomore meets many new friends and at last gains a feeling of being a part of the school. ln the next two years he will learn how to work with his fellow club members to put on dances, to promote candy sales, and to give formals. With their contributions of spirit and leadership, the organizations of Lamar have done much to make the school a place of continual activity. NON SOCIAL CLUBS SOCIAL CLUBS R.O.T.C. aww gag If you've ever entered or even passed room 306 between two and three o'clock you are probably aware of the chaos caused by a year- book staff. Here amidst the stifling aroma of glue, the snipping of scissors, and the pecking of a typewriter, Cno reflection on Beverly Kemp's procedurel, the Orenda Staff works to produce an annual that will please the ever- EDITOR-ROBERT CLEMONS critical student body. The Orenda has been selected seven times as being a First-Class Honor Book, this honor recognizes the book as one of the best high school yearbooks in America. Upon entering 306 one might see Henry Wilde and Bob Strawn back in the corner talking over pictures each would like to have in his section. Henry's responsibility is the School Life Section, and Bob's is the Sports Section. They are not bothered by Elwyn Simons as he patiently moves them aside in order to get some glue out of the cabinet. At his side is Kenneth Eastridge, a new comer to the staff, together Kenneth and Elwyn are largely re- sponsible for mounting and drawing panels. Julia Picton and Henry Wilde read over some copy as Beverly Kemp Bob Strawn, Fred Durrance, Beth Smyth, and Margaret Wright are prepares to type, . busy mounting one of the club pages. Orenda Staff Julia Picton, assistant editor, is check- ing lists of seniors to be sure each name , identifies the correct picture. Margaret Wright's job, the Club section, and Beth Smyth's, the sophomore and junior classes, - are both difficult. Margaret and Beth manage to look up from their work for a s minute to hear the conversation between Bm THORNTCNI BUSWESS MANAGER Fred Durrance, staff photographer, and Robert Clemons, editor. Turning through his dummy Robert is explaining to Fred the picture assignments for the next day. As confusion mounts, Miss Weinberg and her business staff enter. They bring samples of red leather for the cover. Bill Thornton, business manager, carries a large yellow envelope of samples. Mary Alexander, Anne Watts, and Carol Smith have left their receipt writing long enough to help decide on a suitable color. This energetic group has worked patiently and hard to produce this year's Orenda. The staff, the sponsors, Miss Drew Black Staggs and Miss Helen Weinberg, sincerely hope the book pleases all Lamarites. While Buddy Clemons and Julia Picton check for misspelled names, Kenneth Eastridge and Bill Thornton survey some club mountings.

These were the principal's words to the students as he prepared to name the members whose pictures appear on this page. The Arrowheads have been called "the cream of the senior crop," and the senior "brains.f' They are the students who have maintained a 4.6 average or better throughout high school, who have maintained high character qualities, and have attained a record of service and leadership.

The members had a very busy year. The installation and dinner was held on No- vember thirtieth at Ye Ole College lnn. Besides main- taining an exhibit case in the library and selling decals and pencils, the Arrowheads have sold bright red and blue cel- lophane book covers. As the year drew to a close the mem- bers looked forward to Class Night at which time the Ar- rowhead Cup is presented to the club's most valuable member. Paula Meredith was winner last year.

A National lelonor Socie ty O Since 1922, when the National Honor Society was first founded, it has grown into an organization of over 2000 chapters, whose total membership includes 250,000 students. The object of the Lamar chapter is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character. Under the direc- tion of Mr. W. J. Moyes, the club was led during the fall semester by Louise Baker, president, Carolyn Coy, vice-president, Don Olsen, secretary, and Henry Wilde, treasurer.

Several years ago this department formed the Speaker's Forum. This organization is a member of the National Forensic League. This year the club elected the following officers: Dorothea Bachemin, president, Dick Sweetland, vice-presi- dent, Florine Sowar, secretary. Throughout this year the members attended speech tournaments in Dallas, Waco, and Arlington. The two most important events are the National Forensic League District meet held in Arlington and the state lnterscholastic League competition. Although both of these events are held in the spring it is safe to predict that Lamar's speech students will again bring home many new trophies. This year Lamar won first place in Boys' Declamation at the University of Houston, and Second Place Boys' debate at the University of Houston. Beside the many activities this club has sponsored, the members still found time to give two successful pay dances. The first, "Flight 49," had the distinction of being the first pay dance in I949. It was highlighted by a boys' style show. The second pay dance which was held in the spring, was an April Fool's Dance. The Speaker's Forum and Mr. Floyd Dougherty are to be congratulated on their high accomplishments in the field of speech.

The Student Council was established at Lamar in 1937. It is u representative body which helps form the policies of the school, and which promotes school spirit. The club is under the guidance of its vivacious sponsor, Miss Helen Wein- berg. The members of the Council are elected one from each homeroom. In order to be eligible for membership a student must have a B average and an H in conduct. The long list of the activities of this club is staggering. This year members compiled the directory, sponsored the Red Cross, the Community Chest, and the Lamar Library Drives, conducted the Orenda subscription drive and supervised all school elections. They also found time to furnish the school with scholarship merit awards which Mr. Moyes presents twice a year to students with all A averages. In the picture on the left, members of the Charter Committee, Rupert Johnson, Dorothy Foster, and Babs Hartung submit to Mr. Moyes the tentative plan for a new organization. Below, the CounciI's Election Committee, Bob Strawn, Barbara Lee Brown, and Patsy Murray tabulate the returns of the senior class officer election. The Student Council has three major standing committees. The Election Committee helps conduct and tabulate school elections. The Charter Committee reads, amends and submits new clubs' charters to the Council for ap- proval. The Bulletin Board Committee keeps constant watch on the size and quality of the poster placed on the bulletin boards throughout the building. At the head of the club this year was Al Hildreth, president, Dale Fooshee, vice-president, Clare Williams, secre- tary, and Carolyn Coy, treasurer. These officers found I949 a busy year.

If you do, you probably already know about Lamar's Spanish club, Los Habladores. This club was organized to promote an interest in the language and in the customs of the Latin-American countries. These are the officers of the club: Louise Baker, president, Frances Bell, vice-president, Sallie Falkenbury, secretary, Beverly Baird, treasurer, and Andrea Simmons, council member at large.

At this meeting Reverend Bello, pastor of the Mexican Presbyterian Church of Houston, related the story of Christmas in Spanish. After the speech the members presented him with a pinata for the children of his church. Later in the year at the February meeting the members saw two movies on Latin America.

At bi-weekly meetings its members read examples of their work, which are criticized by the other members and by Miss Margaret Buchanan, Sequoyha's sponsor. Then the best work is compiled in an anthology which is presented each year to the library. During the past five years, Sequoyha has made a name for itself. Its members' work has been published in Scholastic Magazine, in the National High School Poetry Anthology, and in the Saturday Review of Literature. Last year, members won the lnterscholastic League Ready Writer's Cup, the Terry Cup, the Trinity College Poetry Contest, and first places in the essay, short story, and patriotic writing divisions of the twenty-four state National Essay League Contest. In the top picture are the officers of Sequoyha, Jean Fairchild, vice-presi- dent, Henry Wilde, president, Kenneth Eastridge, treasurer, and Charlotte Millis, secretary.

Texu unior Ncademq of Sczence ln l937 along with the opening of La- mar a new club was organized for those students interested in science. Mrs. Edna W. Miner, who has sponsored this club since that time has watched many bud- ding biologists develop into potential scientists of the future. Each year mem- bers of the club represent Lamar at the various state conventions. With the motto, "Science for service, safety, and pleasure," in mind, the mem- bers alternate weekly program meetings with outings and field trips to Houston's outstanding places of scientific interest. Pictured in the circle at the top of the page are the officers l948-l949. They are Jimmy McMurtry, treasurer, Elwyn Simons, president, Lorena Ruland, historian, and Ed Heyne, secretary.

The club has a two-fold purpose-first, to have an organized military group for the officersg second, to have an organized social group. A large portion of the military phase of the club is devoted to the inspections and parades that the battalion takes part in each year. The social phase is devoted to outings and dances. Each year the members look forward to the Offi- cers' Ball. All R.O.T.C. officers in the city take part in this event. This year it was held in the South American Room of the Rice Hotel on Febru- ary eleventh. The club has regular meetings once a month. The sponsor for the club is the comandant of Lamar's R.O.T.C., Major Walter S. Lamont.

This comic book drive, which was carried on during January, was just one of the numerous helpful activities this organization sponsors, these books, along with many attractive menu covers and tray favors, were sent to the Naval Hospital and to Jefferson Davis Hospital. The Lamar chapter of the Junior Red Cross was established in 1943 to aid the war effort. Now that the war is over, this aid is given to the service men's hospitals and to the needy people of Houston. The members of this organization are elected representatives from each homeroom, their sponsor is Mrs. Elanor Huddleston.

Under the supervision of Mr. Harold Nicols,Mr. Dick Bunker, and Mr. Jesse Madden, this group set as its goal the reorganization of the Lamar Hi-Y. They made tentative plans for the year. The following officers were elected: Bill Munnerlyn, president, Beach Mott, vice-president, Bill Lee, secretary, Robert Clemons, treasurer. ln December in a very impressive ceremony at the Y.M.C.A., fifty boys were formally installed. They stated as their purpose, the maintaining and extending through- out the school, high standards of Christian character. The first project of these boys was to sponsor a Hi-Y Midnight Show on November 24th. In a second project, the Hi-Y boys sold red and blue pencils, and belts bearing the Lamar emblem.

They also made donations to the World Youth Fund and to the Athletic Department. The Hi-Y of Lamar works in three neighborhood groups. The West University Place, the River Oaks, and the Montrose. The different chapters gave baskets of food to needy families at Christmas, they sponsored a hayride, they participated in the Easter Sunrise Service, they looked forward to a pay dance in the Spring. The boys will remember the mornings they tumbled out of bed earlier than usual in order to attend the Thursday morning meetings, they will remember the interesting speakers, especially Bill Henry. Above all, under the sponsorship of Mr. B. W. Kent, they will remember the friendships they have made through this outstanding Christian organization.

The Lamar chapter of Y-Teen has set as its purpose to promote strong fellowship among the Lamar girls and among the members of Y-Teen chapters all over the world. The membership of this club is open to any girl interested in furthering the club's purposes. Although this club was only chartered in October, the membership is the largest of its kind in Houston. Since the enrollment is so large, the club was divided into three chapters: the River Oaks, chairman, Annice Blatt, the Montrose, chairman, Joan Shaw, and the West University, chairman, Bobbie Anne Trott.

Each of these organizations has its standards, traditions, and distinguish- ing characteristics. lf you should ask a Lamarite to tell you what he is reminded of by the name Palomar, he would have little trouble, for this club has many va- ried and interesting activities. This club is responsible for the many red slogan slips that showered the school before each football game. What student hasn't been approached by one of the vivacious Palamars with an envelope with "just one more slip to sell." These brightly colored slogan slips have done much to promote school spirit. This year Palomar had their annual Christmas formal at the Houston Coun- try Club. The officers who worked hard on the formal are: Andrea Simmons, president, Louise Baker, vice-president, Martha Moore, recording secretary, Mary Alexander, corresponding secre- tary, Marjorie Shepherd, treasurer, Mary Gene Johnson, parliamentorian, Jeannie Dederick, sergeant-at-arms, Anne Hogan, publicity chairman, Missy Edmundson, social chairman, Mary PRESIDENT-ANDREA SIMMONS Palamar Owen Jones, decoration chairman, Ros- anne Dickson, sports chairman, Frances Bell, gift chairman, Babs Hartung, jun- ior membership chairman, and Joann Buckstaff, chaplain. The sponsor is Miss Sarah Collins. Soon after the new semester began Palamar had their traditional Darktown Strutter's Ball. Students will not forget Jem Bentz's rendition of "St. Louis Blues" nor will they forget the lively can-can line. At Easter time Palamar gives an Easter egg hunt for the children of a negro nursery. They also make donations dur- ing the year to the Red Cross and to the Lamar Library. The following new mem- bers were drawn at mid-term: Beverly Bohn, Joan Brooks, Helen Collier, Sue Eckhardt, Fran Farrell, Pat Fenoglio, Linda Friedricks, Jean Garmany, Sandy Hobbs, Dana James, Pa- tricia iKemp, Ann Kennerly, Carolyn Kongabel, Jane Lawhon, Lynn Lloyd, Mary Ann Moore, Rosemary Moreland, Wanda Polk, Carolyn Renfro, Katharine Snow, Ann Snowdon, Mary Lynn Taylor, Janet Westmoreland, and Linda Wiggs.

Besides this the club has many other projects throughout the year. There is the an- nual Chums' Style Show and the annual visit to the Crippled Children's Hospital at Christmas.

You stumble to your locker, deposit your books and hurry down the stairs and outside. Then you stop and sit on one of the benches, catch your breath, finish that last piece of fudge from the candy sale, and then board your bus. These cement benches are pre- sented to the school each year by the Tawasi Club. This is just one of the many worthwhile activities this club does during the year. At Christmas and Thanksgiving each year the Tawasis fill a bushel bucket with food and cloth- ing for two families. The Tawasi Club has pre- sented the library with a subscription to the Book of the Month Club. Sometime look at one of these library books and see if it doesn't have a maroon and white label saying "Presented to the Lamar Library by the Tawasi Club." At Tawasi's "Pigskin Prom," the football teams of Lamar and Army of West Point clashed and on Saturday morning the Lamar eleven was still undefeated. The Tawasi girls will certainly re- member how they had to borrow the "B" team's equipment. The only hitch was that the "B" team played a game that afternoon. The Tawasi girls had to scrub the dirty jerseys before the game. This certainly was the only football game Lamar's "B" team ever won in wringing wet jerseys. Tawasi's spring dance was quite a change. At the "Sweetheart Swing" the Tawasi Club cele- brated St. Valentine's Day. One of Tawasi's money-making projects is their sale of red and blue crepe paper pom-poms for VICE-PRESIDENT-BEVERLY WARD Tawani the cheering section. Tawasis will remember the day a group got together at Martha Hodge's house to manufacture these pom-poms. Wire, scissors, thumbs and patience were worn out that day. The following list of new members will re- member that during pledging they had to have all the football players autograph an egg: Nor- leen Anthony, Pat Baldwin, Betty Bess, Barbara Biggs, Mary Coy, Joyce Gibson, Nancy Heinen, Sue Hillbolt, Betty Hilliard, Margie Jourde, Lolita McNeil, Marlene Moore, Joan Neely, Barbara Pannell, Sarah Pitchmann, Dolores Rogers, San- dra Schmidt, Jackie Speece, Harriet Wade, and Barbara Wall. Tawasi's formal in April and the presentation of the Tawasi Cup highlighted the club's spring activities. The Tawasi Cup is presented each year to the most outstanding boy in the Junior Class. Last year's recipient was Robert Clemons. The officers of the club for I948-'49 were: president, Carolyn Coy, vice-president, Beverly Ward, recording secretary, Ann Cunningham, corresponding secretary, Jane Borneman, treas- urer, Martha Hodge, social chairman, Lila Fagan, junior membership chairman, Joanne Brunt, sergeant-at-arms, Jo Ann Woodham, sports chairman, Joyce Amsler, parliamentarian, Caro- lyn Woodruff, charity chairman, Dixie Potts, and publicity chairman, Camille Ramsey.

These girls feel that in order to be a good club mem- ber they must cooperate fully in any charitable or practical service sponsored by the school. ln the fall the following officers were elected:l Gelya Anderson, president, Eleanor Wright, vice-l president, Shirley Armstrong, recording secretary, Vera Abshier, corresponding secretary, Marilyn Vreugde, treasurer, Merle Striekert, social chair- man, Martha Bickley, sales chairman, Reville Wain- wright, publicity chairman, Nancy Restivo, sergeant- at-arms, Betty Womeldorf, parliamentarian, Char- lotte Millis, chaplain, Patsy Daniel, sports chair- man, June Ashen, junior membership chairman, Gloria Whitehead, charity chairman, and Janet Lawson, telephone committee chairman. The biggest occasion of the year for this club is their annual spring pay dance, the Friendship Festi- l val. In an election held in every registration the week, preceding this dance, the student body elects the friendliest boy and girl in the school. The five boys and five girls who have received the top number of votes are then announced. At the dance a silver cup FALL PRESIDENT-GEYLA ANDERSON Kellu is awarded to the two persons elected the most friendly. The Belles have in this way shown appreciation for students possessing the highly respected quality of friendliness. Last year the winners were Earl Bel- lamy and Carolyn Douglas. Throughout the year Belles has many social func- tions, including a luncheon for the graduating members and an annual formal. ln the spring the following officers were elected: Eleanor Wright, president, Janet Lawson, vice-president, Betty Inglis, recording secretary, Vera Abshier, corre- sponding secretary, Marilyn Vreudge, treasurer, Shirley Axline, social chairman, Nancy Calnon, co- social chairman, Martha Bickley, sales chairman, Helen McKay, publicity chairman, Nancy Restivo, sergeant-at-arms, Betty Womeldorf, parliamen- tarian, Charlotte Millis, chaplain, Patsy Daniel, sports chairman, June Ashen, junior membership chairman, and Kathy Burton, charity chairman. The sponsor is Miss Helen Greenwood. The following new members were drawn at mid- term: .lohn Ruth Ashen, Judy Burrell, Cynthia Crutcher, Kathyrn Galbreath, Lillian Hobbs, Joan Nelson, Jerrie Nan Swinford, and June Thompson.

Under the sponsorship of Lee S. Keding this club started out pri- marily as the Girls' Chorus. Now the members of Haienonis have formed a social club. Every morning at lst pe- riod these girls meet, practice new songs, and listen to Mr. Keding's jokes. The officers are: Marjorie Shep- herd, president, Jo Ann Woodham, vice-president, Marla Ehler, secre- tary, Jean Fairchild, treasurer, Eloise Frame, social chairman, Jeannie Ded- erick, publicity chairman, Beverly Baird and Mary Ann Rhine, sergeants- at-arms, Janice Barstow, chaplain, Phyllis Johnson, pianist, and Patsy O'Daniel, decoration chairman. This year these girls have presented programs for P.T.A. meetings, the Dads' Club and for the student body. PRESIDENT-MARJORIE SHEPHERD Haienoni Last fall the club gave a very impres- sive assembly periodg students were highly pleased by the varied program. Probably the most generally liked piece was their rendition of "Make Mine Country Style." The members of Haienonis will re- member the Sunday they sang for the senior Baccalaureate Service at Saint John the Divine Episcopal Churchg the fall pay dance, the Christmas carol- ling fshown belowl, and the problem they had acquiring a date for their annual formal which they were forced to postpone because of the Arlington Heights game. As the spring drew near plans were being made for the next pay dance, a program at the Shriners' Crippled Children's Ball, program for the Ki- wanis Club, and of course the annual Frolics. r Martin Masterson Mathis Matthews Millis Montgomery Montgomery McAnelly McCarthy McGhee McMillIan Naylor Nichols Nye 0'Doniel Payne Pelatari Picton Pike Pinto Potts Putney Rhine Richardson Rickles Robertson Rose Salmon Schiller Shannon Shaw Sterrett Trott Williams, A.

Hart, C. Hastings Herndon Hallowell iwauna Remember Valentine's Day? Most students will always associ- ate this day with the Niwaunas and their highly successful sing- ing valentines. Each year on Feb- ruary 14, this large group of girls takes over the school for one day. Students who have placed their orders wait eagerly to have their long suppressed desires fulfilled. And most English teachers are re- signed to the fate of receiving at least one valentine from Beowulf or Squire Cass, while Latin and Spanish teachers will undoubtedly get several from Julius Caesar or Serafin and Matilde. This year the Niwaunas had a very successful fall pay dance, the Totem Tepee. The members spent weeks drawing and painting huge Indian rain birds, symbols, and wig- wams with which to decorate the gym. One of the most interesting and wonderful times in the year of a Niwauna girl is her visit to Haw- thorne School. Here, a big Christ- mas party is given to the under- privileged children. ln the picture below Julia Picton is presenting a little girl with a gift while in the background others busily open their packages. Also during the Christmas holi- days the club gave its annual for- mal at Houston Country Club.

This club, whose name is derived from the "L" for Lamar and "Adaku," an Indian word meaning "to serve," was founded three years ago. Since that time this club under the guidance of Miss Hazelle McCarty has maintained their motto "She is noble who does noble deeds," and has become one of Lamar's leading social clubs. Last year the club began by presenting a hundred and fifty dollar scholarship to Lou- ello Kendrick, a Lamar graduate of last spring. Each year Ladaka plans to leave one of these scholarships to a worthy girl. Below, Mr. Moyes receives a check from the club. Another activ- ity for last fall was the "Twilight Twirl," Ladaka's successful pay dance. Ladakas will remember practicing for their ballet, and also finding out at the last minute that the cokes had not yet been ordered. One of the new projects of Ladaka this year was to form a welcoming committee for the Sophomores. Each Ladaka wore o red and blue "L" and after a "pep" rally in the auditorium the new students were led through the strange halls. Because of the success of this project Ladaka plans to make this a permanent aid to the school. VICE-PRESIDENT-BETTY GRAY Zadaka The busy officers for this fall were: Georgia May, president, Sally Smith, vice-president, Daisy Johnston, secretary, Betty Gray, treas- urer, Sue Payne, sports chairman, Jo Ann Thompson, social chairman, Doris Creager, junior membership chairman, and Ruth Ann Edwards, sergeant-at-arms. In the spring the members re-elected Geor- gia May, president, Betty Gray, vice-president, Barbara Holliday, secretary, Carol Walker, treasurer, Pat Leigh, chaplain, Grete Freund, junior membership chairman, Jo Ann Forbes, social chairman, Sue Payne, charity chairman, Janet Gast, sports chairman, Angela Cald- well, sergeant-at-arms, Doris Creager, public- ity, and Diana Baker, corresponding secretary. The climax of the year for the Ladakas was their formal which was held at River Oaks Country Club on May l4. They also looked forward to the Frolics where each year the Ladaka Club has the concessions for cold drinks. The following new members were drawn at mid-term: Betty Batchelor, Mary Jo France, Betty Jean Fredrickson, Lisa Hearn, Gail Hen- derson, Marion Hufnall, Phyllis Johnson, Jean McElreath, Sibyl Prince, Charlotte Rogers, and Sarah Salmon.

No one will soon forget the Weird Spook House, which had been made out of Mr. Uzzell's physics "lab." lt was ebon black, and the strains of one of Stan Kenton's more lurid creations were creeping out of a phonograph. Sure! Everyone knows now that those were just brushes on the floor to scratch the legs of the frightened guests and that it was a little Pow Wow who kept his hands in ice water all evening so that his fingers would be cold when he tried to strangle everyone. Sure, it's plain now, but that evening it was a different story. Pow Wow dug deep and came up with a different type of installation this year. Each member took a date. Following the installa- tion the Pow Wows and their dates danced the rest of the evening. At mid-term Mr. Orris G. Bailey, the spon- sor of Pow Wow, left Lamar to become a supervisor of chemistry. The club presented him with a beautiful VICE-PRESIDENT-MELVIN KURTH Pow- Wow new gold watch. The new sponsor of Pow Wow is Mr. Arthur Herring. When one thinks of spring at Lamar, he always remembers the May Fete. Each year after the May Fete, Pow Wow gives their big- gest dance of the year. Everyone goes to the dance hoping for a closer glimpse of, or even a dance with, some of Lamar's royalty. The officers for this year were Ben Kostial, president, Melvin Kurth, fall vice-president, Bill Lee, spring vice-president, Pat Whitworth, secretary, Teddy Wiegard, treasurer, E. B. Roberts, sergeant-at-arms, and Richard Black and Buck Wheat, directors. At the club's formal at the River Oaks Country Club, Ben Kostial presented a bouquet of roses to the Pow Wow Pin-Up, Jem Bentz. The following new members were drawn: Walter Allen, Bob Arrington, Paul Bowers, Tommy Davies, Dick Fullerton, Harry Gayden, Gaylord Gillispie, Ronald Hall, John Henry Herbert, Fort Howard, George Johnson, Jack Lewi, Claude Matthews, Armando Porras, Jack Tait, Buddy Williams, George Woodward.

A small gold English "R," Lamar Stationery, Spring Track Meet, Ramal Cup . . . all of these are characteristics of Lamar's largest boys' social club. Under the guidance of Mr. Lee S. Keding this club plays a leading role in many social and charitable activities. This year was one of the most eventful in the club's history. An energetic group of offi- cers were elected last spring. Robert Clemons was the fall president, Bill Thornton, vice- president, Earle Alexander, secretary, Khle- ber Attwell, treasurer, Al Hildreth, social chairman, Don Olsen, sports chairman, George Dorrance, junior membership chairman, Har- vey Smith, sergeant-at-arms, and Philip Blatt, chaplain. Before the school doors opened in Septem- ber this group was making plans for the com- ing year. The first thing the club did when school opened was to elect their fall sweet- heart. The honor of being Ramal Sweetheart entitled Gayle Garth to participate in all the club activities and to attend its meetings. Ramal introduced something new to students this year with their colorful Lamar stationery. Gayle and the Ramals will remember the aft- ernoon they all got together and packed three hundred boxes. The club's fall pay dance, the "Redskin Wardance," was held the night be- fore Lamar played Thomas Jefferson. ln the floor show, which would be hard to forget, Ramals gave a take-off of the Jeffer- FALL PRESIDENT-ROBERT CLEMONS dal son dressing rooms, the Lamar dressing room, and the Lamar cheerleaders. A little more on the serious side was the club's annual formal lshown belowl which was held at the Houston Country Club. Ramals will not forget the week preceding this occa- sion which was spent gathering and silvering a trailer-full of magnolia leaves, writing pro- grams, and filling two hundred green and white balloons with helium. At the formal, Gayle Garth was presented a bouquet of roses and a silver bracelet. The following officers for the spring term were announced: Bill Munnerlyn, president, Tommy Jax, vice- president, Benny Hood, secretary, Lewis Cut- rer, treasurer, Bill Thornton, social chairman, Khleber Attwell, sports chairman, Fagan Cox, junior membership chairman, Claude Hooton, sergeant-at-arms, and Don Olsen, chaplain. In the spring the members elected Anne Watts club sweetheart. They looked forward to their annual track meet and the presenta- tion of the Ramal Cup. This cup is presented each year to the most outstanding junior girl. Last year Julia Picton received the cup. The following new members were drawn: Richard Webb, Bill Wilde, Fred Duckett, George Wil- son, Kenneth Horton, Tommy Hill, Yeager Markins, George More, Jim Wildman, Newton Rayzor, Tom Biggs, Bill Bullen, Murphy Scurry, Maurice Keathely, Charlton Hadden, Carl Lee, Bill Word, Jack McComb, Larry Hensarling, Mack Milner, Joe Shaffer, and Jim Dickson.

Under the sponsorship of W. L. Burns, the lraris promote friendship and good feeling among their members. The fall officers of Irari did much to gain prestige for the club throughout school. Johnny Miller was club president, Arthur Mon- crief, vice-president, Jimmy Burns, secretary, Billy Hardin, treasurer, Fred Staacke, ser- geant-at-armsg Martin Scheid, social chair- man, John McConnell, junior membership chairman, Charles Tapley, publicity chair- man, and Hammy Hill, sports chairman. Soon after the opening of school the club elected the members of the annual Irari Court. Carolyn Coy was elected queen, Barbara Lee Brown, princess from Chumsj Shari Collins, princess from Niwauna, Rosemary Hamner, princess from Hainonis, George May, princess from Ladaka, Jane Putney, princess from Palomar, and Jo Ann Woodham, princess from Tawasi. These girls were honored with an open house held at the home of Fred Staacke. Probably the biggest event of the year for the lraris was their fall pay dance. Remember the "S.S.S." - this announcement began to arouse the curiosity of the student body at least a month before the dance. Finally as the week of their dance arrived, the club used every advertising stunt conceivable to prepare for the dance. Not many of us will forget the morning before school when a group of lraris solemnly FALL PRSIDENT-JOHNNY MILLER ral-i paraded a cow across the campus carrying a sign "This ain't no bull-the Sing Sing Swing's the best dance ofthe year", or the next morn- ing when an ambulance came screaming up to a stop in front of the school-five boys jumped out and chased Johnny Miller across the campus until, with the aid ofa straight jacket, he was hauled back into the ambulance and it went screaming off. The lrari boys will remem- ber soliciting door prizes and collecting red lanterns to light the walk up to the gym, they will also remember the football games with Ramal and Pow-Wow. The following officers were elected for the spring semester: Arthur Moncrief, president, Fred Staacke, vice-president, Maurice Patter- son, secretary, Billy Hardin, treasurer, John Davis, sergeant-at-arms, Dick Belt, social chairman, George Meriwether, junior mem- bership chairman, Jack Doran and Ed Heyne, publicity chairmen, Bill Van Wart, sports chairman, Kerry Preston, chaplain, and Dan Turner, commissioner of communications. ln the spring the members looked forward to their annual formal, which was held on May 7, at the River Oaks Country Club. The following new members were drawn: Bryan Bell, Ben Brewer, Rodney Charlton, Bill Drake, B. B. Drury, David Goff, Bill Hamblin, Robert Hermance, Charles Hill, Bob Kemp, Tommy Kloves, Russell Mount, Steve Muller, Horace Perry, Jimmy Pickett, Kaye Reiter, Tommy Rabson, Sidney Smith, Pete Stigerwald, Orman Taylor, Richard Thompson, John Victery, Allen Weymouth, Earl Williams, and Jimmy Wyatt.

Wood, and Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Albert Pavey. Second row, Cadet Mayor Eloise Frame and Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Babs Hartung. lt has been said that R.O.T.C. is nothing but an excuse for a study hall. This is far from a true statement. The Reserve Officers Training Corps offers a boy instruction that will be of value to him throughout a civilian or a mili- tary career. R.O.T.C. is comparable to a course in physical education in that stress and attention is placed on strengthening and developing the body. lt is comparable to a solid subject in that the mind is developed in the field of citizenship and discipline. There is a twofold purpose in the R.O.T.C. On November ll, the Lamar regiment of the R.0.T.C, paraded down Main Street led by our R.O.T.C. band. Last fall a party was held at the armory on the day promotions were announced. From left to right are Captain Sonny DeLong, Captain Joe Barta, Major James Wood, Lieutenant Colonel Albert Pavey, Captain Lyle Wolfskill, Captain Arthur Moncrief, and Captain James Griffin, 'E 'l4ElA - and itA Zeade The first objective is to teach a student the fundamentals of good citi- zenship and how to practice them. The second is to acquaint the student with military discipline and the basic ideals of militarism itself. ln addition to being an organization in which all participants gain knowl- edge, the R.O.T.C. offers an opportunity for social development. The corps sponsors picnics, dances, and bay shore parties. ln a word, the Reserve Officers Training Corps is a laboratory in which good American citizens may be trained. ln marching formation is the R.O.T.C. band, directed by Mr, Lee S. Keding, This year Cadet Captain Dick Belt was Band Commander. Band Commander for the year 1948-1949 was Cadet Captain Dick Belt and the Band Sweetheart was Clare Masterson, ll7 First row: Cadet Captain Lyle Wolfskill and R.O.T.C. Commandant Major Walter S.

The competition among girls in the field of beauty is best displayed by looking at the following pages. Each year the pictures of the school's most beautiful girls are sent off to a well-known judge of beauty. He in turn selects the Orenda beauties. The entire student body at Lamar centers around the school's participation in the various fields of sports. Each year Lamar brings home new trophies and sets new records. Athletes will remember this year especially. They remember the new coaches, the hours of practice after school, and the out-of-town trips. They will remember reading the sports section of the Houston papers to see what Dan Cook had to say. The last section is the school life. ln it are pictures summarizing the events of this year.

Lamar's State Finalist football team, won the City Crown for the third successive year, making Lamar the first school to accomplish this feat. The highly polished Indians battled through eleven games with only a tie marring their record. They met their only defeat in the Big City Finals. Lamar placed four boys on the All-City team. The Indians made a defensive record unequaled this year by any other Houston squad. The offensive prowess and speed will be long remembered by their opponents and fans. At the banquet All-City Bill Chanslor and All-State George Pontikes were elected co-captains of the '48 eleven. The speedy Lamar cagers finished the regular basketball season deadlocked in second place with San Jacinto. They missed the opportunity to represent Houston in the Big City Championship games by losing the play-off series with the Bears. Hardly a game was decided by more than five points. Each was a thriller from the initial jump to the final gun. The highlight of the season was the Jaycees Tournament, which won for Lamar two large trophies. The interesting style demonstrated by the Redskins brought many crowds to the Public School "Gym." George Pontikes and Don Olsen were elected co-captains of the '48-'49 season. Managers Charles Heyer and Porter Johnson were great helpers and an inspiration to the team. Since Spring Sports have just started it will be hard to predict the outcome. The Lamar track team, braced by lettermen Gerhardt Schulte and Sam Hamilton, captains of the '49 squad, will try to make it the third district crown in as many years. Bobby Brodnax, Claude Hooton, Dudley Epps, Benny Hood, George Buckstaff, Richard Black, and other lettermen will attempt to pace the swimming team to the third State Championship. The golfers, stalwarted by Don Addington, Bernard Riviere, Floyd Addington, and Bob Moncrief, are hoping to get past the winner-up spot in state-a spot they reached last year. This season both the tennis team and the baseball team are looking forward to the prospect of adding many laurels to those already won by the Lamar Indians. This hard-working trio spent many afternoons during the fall These are the men who coached the Lamar teams to issuing equipment, washing jerseys, and taking care of the their many victories. Standing left to right are Bob football team. They are football managers Hubert Leslie, Ben Schulze, George Hartung, Fred Pepper, and Donald Kostial, and Bobby Brodnax. Longcope. This year the Lamar Redskins added another feather to their football helmet. Operating under their new coaches for the first time, Lamar became the first Houston school to win the City Title three years in a row. Coaches Bob Schulze, George Hartung, and Fred Pepper were the brains behind the Indian attack. Besides taking the city crown, Lamar advanced to the first Big City Conference finals before bowing to Arlington Heights of Fort Worth for the state championship. When the new coaches arrived, they brought with them a new offensive formation. This was the "Y" formation as used by S.M.U. This "Y" enabled the team to make a large variety of speed and power plays. "ls everybody happy . . .?" Cheerleaders Sue Hastings, Bobby Carsey, Mavis Hardy, Al Hildreth, Clare Williams, and Dale Fooshee get ready for the locomotive yell. Not in picture is Beech Mott who was injured at the beginning of the year and was unable to lead yells until later in the season.

They were hard and vicious blockers, hustling on both offense and defense. Their defensive record for the past season is especially good. Lamar started working out during the third week in August. The Dad's Club put up lights so that the team might work out after the heat of day had gone. The first week after school started, Lamar got into its regular season. The season was an unusually good one as far as the weather was concerned. The Reagan game was the only game played on a muddy field. The coaches, the managers, the cheerleaders, and the student body may find just cause for pride in the accomplishments of the 1948 footbaal team.

Lamar fans got theirthrills from this game when Bill Frazier, Pasadena scat- bock, raced 35 yards on the second play of the game, Lamar did not play too im- pressively' throughout the game. Sandy Sanderson and Don Olsen were offensive and defensive sfandouts of the game. AMAR vs. SAN JACINTO Lomar took advantage ol' every break 'to smash San Jacinto. Playing one of his best gamesol the year. Tommy Jax sparked the attack. George Pontikes, all state end, led the - defensive. Herb Eubanks J scored the lone San'Jacinto touchdown on a gallop at 65 yards. Bill Chanslor's run of 94 yards without scoring will long be remembered by Lamar fans. LAMAR vs. SAM HOUSTON Lamar had little trouble in drubbing the aerial-minded Bengals. The game was filled with thrills because of the many' passes by Joe Fuentes, passing star. Sandy Sanderson accounted for all the Lamar! touchdowns. Sammy Hamilton, injured in the Robert E. Lee game, came back into form to inspire theilledskins' drives. JAY GARTH KSU JIM GRAFTON C495 BILL GWIN C345 w""Wk SAMMY HAMILTON C301 KENNY HORTON C381 TOMMY JAX C401 LETTERMEN 3230 vs. JEFF DAVIS The Redskins were terrific in the famous Davis aerial game Lamar gumpd to on early lead and scored every period but the second The lndran line shined as they got the jump on Davis line at every snap Spencer Stone turned in the gem of the game with a 90 yard touchdown gallop. LAMAR vs. REAGAN Bull Chanslor paced the lndlans to their seventh straight victory by tallying both touchdowns. The Lamar lme played DON OLSEN C3l1 KEN PAUL C581 GEORGE PONTIKES C351 ball In most parts allowing the Bulldogs to reach only the 29 yard line. Lamarrtes will remember the foul weather as this was the only game played under such conditions. X90 LAMAR vs. AUSTIN Lamar in downing Austin made the Milby game the all important game. Austin as a whole was very unimpressive, Once they drove to the 4 yard line but again the regu- lars took hold and stopped them. Sammy Hamilton with his iorring tackles shined in the Redskin defense. BERNARD RIVIERE C505 SANDY sANosRsoN assi GERHART SCHULTE C465 LAMAR vs. MILBY ln this game, the final of the Houston Conferencefthe Indians released a fine offensivegame the first half and a stalwart defense in the second. Lamar scored both touchdowns in the 'second period, then turned the ball over to Milby.VJack Carson ond Bobby Cobb were defensive standouts in the second half. Milby ace, Don Carpen- ter, was held in check the entire evening. .f,,,Aw W LAMAR vs. THOMAS JEFFERSON Lamar barely slipped ,by the Thomas Jefferson Mustangs to advance to the'Big City Finals. Hamilton on a 'brilliantlyexef cugted lateral ploy from Pontikes scoredithe first Lamar touchdown. Lewis Cutrer took a pass for the second after the Ponies had knotted the count. A 73 yard iaunt by S. M. Meeks gave the Mustangs their second touchdown. The important. try for extra point was blocked by Tommy Jax, - LAMAR vs. ARLINGTON HElGHTS Dropping the only game of the season to the powerful Yellow Jackets, Lamar failed to bring home the State Championship. Hiindered by injuries received in the Jeffer- son game, Lamar's offensive was subnor- mal. The Redskin line played great ball, but breaks gave Arlington a two touch- down lead. A terrific wind making it diffi- cult to pass and punt, put the lndians in serious trouble more than once that after- noon. A ' , JOHN SHUDDE C475 HARVEY SMITH C455 SPENCER STONE C425 HOGUE ADDINGTON MUNNERLYN STRAWN JAX GARTH Ka lzetball Lamar fielded another fast interesting ball club. Coach Don Longcope lived up to his title of "Fire Chief" and led his cagers in their fire wagon attack. The team started practicing soon after school opened. With the beginning of the Christmas Holidays the Lamar cagers journeyed to Conroe to play in the Shrine Tournament. They dropped their second game of the tournament to Milby. The first weekend in January Lamar won the Houston Jaycee Tournament by beating Sam Houston in the finals. Lamar made fine showing in all their Tournament games and placed two boys on the All-Tournament five. George Pontikes and Larry Hogue were the sparks and All-Tournament selections of the Redskins. ln the middle of January, Lamar played in the Huntsville Tournament without the services of the ex-footballers. The Indians advanced to the quarter finals before being ousted by a finalist club. At the end of the season, Lamar found itself in a tie with San Jacinto for second place. There was a play-off series to determine who would represent Houston in the Big City play-offs. Lamar lost in successive games to the hustling, straight- shooting Bears. George Pontikes and Don Olsen were elected co-captains of the basketball team. Pontikes was also the city's top scorer and Lamar's only member of the All-City cage team.
