of make-up and hair is a most pleasing revelation.
1 hope that the student body as a whole will agree with my choice.

Yime to Compete
The competition at Lamar runs high in every field. In
this section are this year's beauties, the school sports, and
school life. 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. This book is a record
of l948-I949 and of its Times to Remember.
