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.

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

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
