We have attempted to cram into these short eighty pages all of the incidents, activities, and classes which you, the students, will want to remember. If the book is a success to you then we, as a staff, have accomplished our nzost coveted wishes.

As we say au revoir to our advisors and teachers who have aided and guided us in our quest for knowledge, as well as to our fellow students who have misguided us into mischief, we turn our backs on days of learning and play and turn our eager faces toward that which the future may hold. Through twelve years of primary train- ing our courage has been "screwed to the sticking point" and our bodies fortified against the buffets of the world, so that we now go forth ready to tackle the future. Some, no doubt, will be famousg some well-known, while for others we shall not predict, but shall leave them with their tee- ter-totter ambitions to rock along with Fate. The wheel of chance will spin for each of us-'round and 'round it goes, where it stops nobody knows-. We do not leave without a twinge of regret and compuncious remorse, but Time Marches On and were we to stay, we should feel the stigma of failure on us for we have had our day.

DICK HAWI-is HE Norman Board of Education, realizing that the world -today is de- manding well trained men and women in all walks of life, is endeavoring to meet this challenge by furnishing efficient teachers and good equipment in our schools. The Norman City Schools now employ seventy-nine teachers. Of these twenty-three hold Master"s Degrees, fifty have Bachelor's Degrees, while only six have no degree. In our diversified curriculum, the admin- istration has endeavored to meet the needs of those who wish to go out to their life's work immediately upon being graduated from high school, as well as those who wish to further their education by attending a college or a university. Norman remains at the top continuously in curricular events as well as in athletics. For the past two years we have placed second in the state interscholastic contests against strong competition with all other Class A schools of Oklahoma. Thus we are producing winners in all fields of competition and are giving to all our pupils splendid opportunities to be out- standing in some line of endeavor. J. DON GARRISON Superintendent of Schools Diagnosticians of The Future E, the student body of Norman High School, have something to brag about. Not our outstanding awards, our superb athletes nor our beautiful campus-guess again. You're right-our faculty. And no wonder we brag, just look them over. Mr. J. Don Garrison, superintendent, is truly the person to have at the head of our city school system. His ability to manage and run efficiently this large school system and his interest in all of us guarantee him a place in our affections. Mr. George M. Roberts is our principal, and nowhere could anyone find one better loved by the students and those who work with him. Mrs. Mary Alice Hampton, registrar, is Mr. Roberts' right-hand helper. Never failing in her duty, she has set a fine example for all of us. One of the busiest workers is Mrs. S. B. Spradlin, clerk, who finds time also to teach a typing class and assist us in en- rolling and paying fees. Going by departments we find Mrs. Walter C. Richards heading the English department. She steers erring seniors down the paths of knowledge. Her assistants in English are Mrs. Allie Mae Ward, who hammers golden pegs of knowledge into sophomores, and Mrs. Charles Wiest, who cultivates in her young sprouts a true appreciation for American writers and classics. Miss Vera Lane heads the history de- partment and makes American history as interesting as a current event. Her co- worker, Miss Nadine Runyan, revives the days of yore in her classes of History I. Mr. Leo L. Robertson distributes social sciences such as economics, geography and sociology. His students really learn what makes the world go 'round Mr. Emory Anderson has shown many students the value of practical education through his commercial courses. Miss Winifrede Burke guides eager fingers along the keyboard of typewriters BOARD OF EDUCATION MR. L. C. LINDSAY, Mn. LYNN BULLARD, MRS. S. B. SPRADLIN, Clcrlc, Mn. KEY Born. President, MRS. BENNIE SHULTZ, ME. W, B. MCGINTY -I2 MR. J. DON GARRISON Superintendent of Schools and through the Suzy Q's of shorthand. Mr. Adolf Bell popularized mechanical drawing and manual training so exten- sively that both boys and girls enroll. The band leader, Mr. Glenn S. Millice, pepped up the band with new uniforms and snappy music which in turn pepped up the entire student body. Mr. Milton Bradley trains young voices in expression of music. He produces such beautiful tones from his pupils that even they are surprised. The foreign language department is under the capable supervision of Mr. Albert Brent. His students in Spanish and Latin classes are so interested they both formed clubs to further their knowledge of these peoples and their customs. Mrs. Eva B. Solomon teaches about plants and bugs to her biology classes. Mrs. Lulu Fairchild teaches one to think in terms of trigonometry, geometry and algebra. Miss Margrete Brauer also instructs us in geometry and trains great mathematical minds. In the library Miss Vivian Harpole's influence can be seen as order and depend- ability excel there. Mr. Joe G. Scott heads the physics department and brings enlightment to bewildered students. In speech, dread turns to joy, under the encouragement of Miss Irene Shaul, and her plays produced are always master- pieces. The girls found a new interest in home economics, learning to cook, sew, and care MR. G. M. Principal ROBERTS for homes and furniture from Miss Thelma Walker, while the boys fill Mr. E. F. Foreman's outstanding vocational agricul- ture classes. In athletics our two coaches win admir- ation, not only from their teams but from every team they oppose. Mr. Arlo "Skivey" Davis, director of athletics, trains boys for the basketball court and the baseball diamond. Mr. Charles 'tChalky" Stogner provides us with brilliant football teams that the entire student body is proud to cheer to victory. Yes, we have a faculty to be proud of, for they have educated us in classes, in problems of life, and in co-operation. To those who guided us through the four most glorious years in our life and have led us through our school "daze" we say-"So long ever'body". M Tl'ual's Right MRS. MARY ALICE HAMPTON Registrar MR.

HE NORMAN public school organiza- tion is set up on a 7-2-3 plan,' seven grades in the elementary schools, two grades in the junior high school, and three grades in the senior high school. The educational trend toward vocational education in high schools has made us stress our vocaqtional programs in H omemaking and Agriculture, both of which are ranked with the best in the state. Our commercial depart- ment has been expanded to give students the necessary basic training in this field. Also a number of practical courses, com- mercial law, high school arithmetic, and human geography, have been added to the curriculum for those pupils who do not plan to enter college. Since Norman is the home of the Uni- versity of Oklahoma and since a survey over a period of years revealed that over sixty- five percent of our high school graduates entered college, our major objective has been to prepare our students for college entrance. A graduate of our high school has under- gone a thorough training in a well-rounded program in the arts, sciences, and vocations, as well as training in the principles of good citizenship. G. M.

Secretary-Treasurer Seniors Epic of Endurance OW we say goodbye-goodbye to four successful bouts in the ring of Norman High School. It's been a swell work-out with few foul punches against us. Our careers began when we, as fresh- men, knocked into existence the school's first student council. Since then, all deci- sions have been in our favor. It was in the ring labeled sophomores where we gained the featherweight title by producing a play-the first to be staged by sophomores in many years. After this came the junior round but again we won out. Nothing spectacular fell to our lot as juniors except that we did raise all necessary funds, we did enter- tain the seniors, and the junior play was not short of being a technical K. O. Only during this last year, though, as seniors, have we held our own with sweep- ing rights and headed for a clippity-clop triumph. The senior class has not only completed many duties naturally inherited by seniors, but also has had fun while at work. Two senior girls walked away with crowns this year, Mary Elizabeth Wilmuth, football queen, and Juanita Rice, band queen. Clncidently this was the first band queen that Norman High has ever had.J Other seniors to win acclaim were Vida Rae Wilson, voted the most popular girl by the student body, and Mary Ellen Boyd, selected by the faculty as the most out- standing girl in the senior class. Seniors kept an even pace in dramatics, managing always for ringside seats- decisions thrown mainly to Gordon Demp- sey, Mary Ellen Boyd, and Jack Borjes. The ropes also burned with senior writers, focusing the limelight on Ed Yates, editor of the school magazine, "Penpoints", .l8. iw SENIOR CLASS SPONSORS Miss IRRNR: SHAUL. MRS. CHARLES Wussr. MRS.

Perhaps no little amount of the credit for our achievements can be attributed to two men who have been a constant part of our progress, G. M. Roberts, referee. and J. Don Garrison, manager, and to a loyal audience, our teachers. The bell has sounded, the final bout has ended, and the 1940 seniors have been acclaimed-the Winnahs! .l9.

Since our first entrance into senior high school our class has accomplished things. We find many juniors reporting to Coach Stogner for football practice. Among them are lettermen Jack Young, Ray Wample1', Joe Saunders, Wayne Robertson, David Steen, Billy Kiracofe, J. E. Richey, and Arvile Rolfe. Elton Davis, junior, figured prom- inently as a guard on the Norman High School Mid-State Championship basketball team. The dairy and poultry judging teams of the Norman High School chapter of the F. F. A., composed entirely of junior class- men, were state champions at the Tulsa and Oklahoma City state fairs. This en- abled our poultry judging team, composed ol' J. Ii. Martin and Cecil Bowles, and the - 3 dairy judging team, composed of Ralph Matlock and Wayne Lessly to represent the state of Oklahoma at the Kansas City Royal Live Stock Show. We juniors have reason to be proud of our scholars. Students making the State Honor Society were Hazel Bartholomew. Ray Boyd, Irene Haskett, Joanna Hersper- berger, Virginia Kennedy, Alice Sargent, Dorothy Sims, Martha Teegardin, and Jack Young. Those elected for membership in the National Honor Society were Irene Haskett and Ray Boyd. Climaxing a very happy and progressive year the junior class entertained the seniors successfully at an informal play party at the National Guard A1'mory. As the year closed we found a group of students happy to have completed their second year of high school and ambitious for their future as Norman High School seniors. 7 inqkn S W ,A..

Secretary-Treasurer - 7944444 'V' NARCISSUS EASTERLING, Vicc-President Ronan' MAYFIEl,D, Reporter Sophomores H+ ,gi 45+ Reaching for The Stars WAY BACK in 1938, there began in Nor- man High School, a noise. This noise, regarded by the ninth graders with disdain, the juniors with amusement, and by the seniors with tolerance, developed into the sophomore class. They prefer to be known as the senior class of 1942, but for the present let us call them sophomores. In this likely looking group you may find talent of all varieties. There are future artists, dramatists, musicians, poli- ticians, social butterflies, and not a few general nuisances. As a whole, though, they are well above average in intelligence, leadership, and the other good qualities which are deemed essential to successful living. In an early class meeting this enter- prising group elected Robert Mayfield as its president, assisted by Narcissus East- erling, vice-president, Doris Pratt, secre- tary, and Fred Cobb, treasurer. With these at their helm, the sophomore class has steered its way through the first year in senior high with unusual cleverness. In the all-school play at the beginning of the year, the sophomore class was ably repre- sented by Barbara Folley and Bonne Marie Knight. By some stroke of genius, coin- cidence, or just plain management, Barbara had the title role in the play-"The Brat"- one well suited to her personality. Praise is due Rosalie Rayburn, Jacque- line Hickman, Narcissus Easterling, Mary Anne Murphy, Robert Mayfield, and Ro- berta Strong for consistently making the honor roll. The sophomore sponsors, Miss Lane, Mrs. Ward, Mr. Bell, Mr. Davis, Mr. Ander- son, and Miss Walker, as well as the rest of us who know the class, look forward to its future activities with great interest.

Jack Gray won the state interscholastic golf champion- ship, the football team finished third in the strong Mid-State league and defeated Corpus Christi, Texas state champions, our basket- ball team won the Mid-State conference and Ray Boyd, one of our swimmers, is threat- ening to be the sensation of the coming state high school aquatic meet,' and we have always entered full squads in track and field, crosscountry, wrestling, baseball, and tennis besides fostering junior high school intra- mural home-room competition in six-man football, basketball and track and field. Nobody can say Norman High School is just a one-sport school or 'that our sports program is just for a few. Our idea is to give all our students am-ple opportunity to acquire proficiency and pleasure in a sport they can pursue in later life, as well as enjoy while they are in school.

'Wi WARN-IN Chalky' S-rocm:n G BY JOHN BUMGARNER DESPITE the hot weather, fifty boys reported to Coach Stogner and Assistant Coach Davis. Within three week's time they had selected the best eleven from those and hammered them into shape for the first game. Our season opened against a heavier Purcell team whose determin- ation to win was so great that we were able to score only one touchdown. "Red" Boyd failed to convert and the game ended 6-0, Norman. Enjoying an open date the next week, the Tigers prepared for the Corpus Christi Buccaneers. A large group of loyal fans gave them a warm send-off to the coast city on Wednesday evening. The following Sunday the same group met the team as they brought home a 13-2 victory. Corpus was so impressed by Norman's prowess that when they selected an all-opponent team, three members of our squad were on it. The following week it was the Tigers against the Tigers, but the smooth running and passing attacks of Norman completely baffled Ardmore as We marched to a 27-0 trimuph. For the second time, Norman traveled to Texas to tangle with the Amarillo Sandies. The high altitude and a slight weight advantage enabled Amarillo to defeat us 19-6. Returning to their state, Norman met the Duncan Demons, considered at that time as one of the most formidable teams of the state. At the end of the first half Norman led 12-0, but Duncan came back red-hot in the second half and chalked up a 13-12 victory. The Chickasha game, our first in Mid-State competition, was exceptionally good, despite the fact that we trounced the Chicks 19-0. The next week, the Tigers shellacked their second Mid-State foe, the El Reno Indians, with such ease that Coach Stogner was able to use his entire squad in the game. Final score Norman 27, El Reno 0. Norman met a Stonewall defense in their homecoming game with the Central Cardinals of Oklahoma City. The fighting Tigers drove to the five yard line once and to the eight another, but we failed to score. Central scored one time and defeated us 6-0.

The powerful Wolves defeated us 13-7. Out of the ten games Norman played, they won six and lost four. In the Mid-State Conference, one of the toughest prep circuits in the state, the Tigers tied for third with three wins and two losses. The seniors are: Max Fischer, one of the best centers in the state, was selected on the All State team. John "Red" Boyd, an outstanding end on both offense and defense, was selected as an end on the All Mid-State team. Harold "Brains" Hill, quarterback, whose brainy signal calling pulled Norman out of more than one tight spot, was also selected on the All Mid-State team. W. A. "Dub" Epperson, guard, came here from Wilson High-a plucky lineman who scored one touchdown for Norman. Gene Adams, a light, fast charging, guard, was in the heart of almost every play on defense. Jeff Fuller, tackle, was more than ready to play when Coach Stogner needed him. Tom Harrell, although a reserve tackle, played so efficiently that he started several games. Howard Wampler, a lineman converted into a blocking back, was effective on both defense and offense. Coy Kersey, a big lumbering half-back, added to the deception of our team with his left-footed kicking and left-handed passing. John "Bum" Bumgarner, understudy for two years to an all-state sixty minute center, was the old reliable. QE -E140 N , Yagi ER, ES T Y xviwa ENSE . 14 3 . Football JOE SAUNDKKS. Hrzvlr RAY WAMPLUI.

They seized the Mid- State championship cup from the Central Cardinals who had held it for two succes- sive years. In the regional tournament at Ada, the Tigers went to the finals by de- feating Henryetta and Pauls Valley. How- ever, a strong Ada club defeated Norman in the finals to claim the right to play in the state tournament. Norman was the defending champion of the Edmond Tournament and was touted to win the cup again this year. However, Pawnee tripped the Tigers in the first game 30-28. Normanls first game of the season was with the Edmond State Teacher's College freshmen, whom they defeated 25-22. During the Christmas Holidays the team traveled to the northern part of the state where they whisked past Enid 35-22, lost to Tulsa Central 24-19, and breezed through Muskogee 27-21. Ardmore defeated the Tigers 27-23 in a hot contest in Norman's dribble hut. Jumping into conference play, the Tigers bounced over Classen 33-14, singed the Chickasha "Chicks" 36-18, 'scalped the Capitol Hill "Redskins" 36-18, and scamp- e1'ed over the El Reno Indians 30-23. Continuing their winning streak, the Tigers defeated the Shawnee Wolves 55-28. Next came Moore in a non-conference game to be mowed down by the Tigers 35-15. A fast Central quintet came to Norman and skinned the Tigers 32-22 for the team's first loss in conference play. However, the Tigers bounced back to defeat Shawnee 45-34 and clean the Chickasha "Chicks" 39-27. Ardmore again tripped the Tigers in a tight game 37-29. Norman trounced its next four opponents, El Reno, Central, Classen, and Capitol Hill by the scores of 28-25, 30-22, 30-28, and 38-34, respectively, to claim the undisputed championship of the Mid-State Conference. Norman's pride reached the bursting point when the team proudly presented to the school the shiny new gold Mid-State basketball trophy and deposited it for pos- terity in our new display case in the hall. Since the athletic council's dispute over the advisability of giving an award for Mid- State contestants made us barely escape losing our hard won trophy, the receipt of it seems doubly precious. Norman is also proud of its coach who can take few boys and small boys and transform them into champions. frifrifr A WINNING SHOT KEEP AWAY OFF TH3 BACKHOARD FRONT ROW Gray. 1.5 Bob Frfd Cobb. qj Miiznui Row: Russell Davis, managerg Doyle Homer, g7.,' Bill Lancaster. c.,' mug, .

HAROLD HILL: who as a basketball thief has no equal: he worries a dribbler until the offensive man is a nervous wreck. He was selected on the All Mid-State Team.

Spring Sports ORMAN HIGH SCHO0L'S spring sports include baseball, golf, tennis Nand track. Baseball is the newest sport of all. This is its third year and promises to be the best. Arlo "Skivey" Davis found the following lettermen reporting from last year: Coy Kersey, Harold Hill, Elton Davis, Bob Nolan, Key Boyd, James Long, and Herschel Sawyer. Several other outstanding players reported, among whom were Floyd Deaton, Oren Haug, Russell Hill, and Joe Bill Bourland. Floyd Deaton, a freshman catcher, was injured at the beginning of the season, but recovered in time to engage in several games. Oren Haug took over his position and played it very effectively. Norman is a member of the Oklahoma Central League which is composed of eight teams. One of the league rules required each team to play each other team at least twice. At the close of the season, the teams resting in the four top divisions have a playoff, which decides the championship. Last year Norman barely missed the playoff. This year the Tigers hope to win the league title. In the state meet last year Norman advanced to the second round by defeating Okemah. However, they were eliminated in the second round by the Oklahoma City Redskins whom they had defeated earlier in the season. In the tournament played to decide the Mid-State champion- ship the Tigers lost a tight game to Classen, which eliminated them. The team dropped their first game of the season to Noble 7-5. In their second start the Tigers were vanquished by Moore 8-2. Norman collected more hits than did the Moore club, but the numerous errors by the Norman club spelled defeat for them.- Failing to hit their wining stride the Tigers again dropped a tilt 9-8 to a hard slugging Harrah team. Elton Davis, the Norman twirler, held the opposition for five innings. Norman threatened in the seventh inning with two men on base and two out, however Hill popped out to short-stop and the game was over. In the second engagement with Moore the team showed marked improvement on both the field and at bat which resulted in a 10-2 victory. .l58. AL Tennis Tennis has always been a sport in which all the students were inter- ested. However, the school has not produced a winner in the sport since Walter Meade in 1938.

Golf Golf began in Norman High in 1934. The team did not have much luck its first year, but the next year the Tigers had one of the best teams in the state.

Each year more than one hundred girls don shirts and shorts to learn the funda- mentals of health and carry out the activities which will help them acquire and maintain good health. The activity side of the physical education program is made up largely of five major types of work: stunts and tumbling or the practice of acrobatic feats on the mats and pyramid buildingg games and relay racesg the practice of folk-dancing, natural, interpretative, and gym- nasticg and the practice of highly organized sports such as volley ball, basketball and soft ball. Mass physical recreational activities as car- ried out in the games and sports have been emphasized because they offer many advantages and have a high degree of recreational content. Stress is placed upon social values which the .5Q. girls may acquire in physical education activities. These include qualities of good sportsmanship, loyalty, cooperation and a sense of responsibility. The various combative sports, and the tumbling activity develop courage, initiative, perseverance, and self-confidence. 71? 'fix' 'its' Norman High School offers a well rounded physical program for the benefit of young grow- ing boys. In summary of our physical education pro- gram we have three major divisions comprising It Q17 gymnastics such as stunts, tumbling, and pyramid-buildingg C21 intramural games-basf ketball, soft ball, touch football and six man footballg and Q33 health and character building, which brings out a boy's place in the community, his associations with his fellow classmates and teaches him to live and let live.

IN the intricate maze of a modern choose- whout-you-please activity program a stu- dent has ample opportunity to find himself if he observes a few sign posts along the way. For those who have pep and energy there is the Gingersnaps Club, whose members add vociferous vocal support as well as pul- chritude at all athletic contests. The gamesome senores and senoritas assemble bi-monthly and learn hablar espanol a little more effectively. From the number who have won in the matrimonial game he-men Future Farmers must learn to judge something more than bovine beauty. The Home Makers dream and fill hope chests. Some of the sober-minded find outlet for their good works through Hi-Y. Young scientists consort in experiments and add a few new formulas-as well as occasional explosions. The future Nobel prize winners expose their talents in Creative Writing, while some of the would-be journalists hope the European war holds out long enough for them to cable home the "real" war dope. Nor does the embryo prima donna or Philip Sousas want for a chance in the numerous musical organizations of the school. The above, along with dramatics and art prove that the student of Norman High School who does not find some interest out- side the three R's has only himself to blame. MRS.

DICK HAWES ditor-zn-Chief DUANE LUNGER Business Manager MARY ELLEN BOYD BOB PENNY MARGARET BRAKE RAY BOYD VIDA RAE WILSON ROBERT ORTENBURGER Worl BY MARY ELLEN BOYD ITH a first class honor rating achieved by the 1939 yearbook clutched in our hands to encourage us and to spur us on to greater things, the 1940 "Trail" staff began the year with a definite goal in mind-that of bringing home an All American yearbook. Of course an undertaking of this sort requires money, but under the capable management of Duane "Dale" Lunger, our business manager, our finances were not so much of a headache. After two campaigns exhibiting our super sales- manship more than two hundred books were sold. Among our money raising schemes was the un- forgotten and unforgetable Senior play, "Big Hearted Herbert". Another was the "Trail" assembly program, which was one of the cleverest of the year. All of our favorite nursery rhyme people were there, Jill Cshe misplaced Jackl, Old King Cole and his three fiddlers, and Peter the Pumpkin Eater with his wandering spouse. The bodies of these well known personages, who ap- peared to such great advantage on the stage were drawn by our art editor Ed "Poochie,' Yates and his assistant, Frank McGee, while their physi- ognomies were our own. These Mother Goose characters advised the student body of some of the secrets of the coming "Trail" and recom- mended an early purchase of the book. This yearls staff is noted for its noisy mem- bers and two redheads, Margaret Brake and Vida Rae Wilson. In a typical meeting Nelda Pearson, our typist, is always pulling her hair because members are slow with their copy and John :ure Bumgarner, sports editor, is constantly looking for his misplaced story. While Vida Rae Wilson, the senior editor, and Frances Jean Westervelt, ieature editor, do a cross-word puzzle to fit the senior pictures with the proper names, Margaret Brake is screaming at Bob Ortenburger, our camera fiend, to get some badly needed snaps so that Ray Boyd, the junior editor, can finish drawing up some mounting boards. To our under- standing and capable advisor, Mrs. Richards, our busy editor, Dick "Doc" Hawes, takes his troubles. ln the corner the assistant and junior business managers, Mary Ellen "Perky" Boyd and Bob Penny are conferring on which moving picture would prove the most profitable if the "Trail" sponsored it. instead of the many sections being strictly in the hands of the various editors, this year the entire staff has had a hand in the selections. Of plans submitted, one is selected. In this same manner pnotograpns were selected. So our book is not the work of individuals but rather the ideas and combined work of a group merged into a compact, yet complete school annual. Although the Staff has worked hard and deserves and receives due credit, we feel the success of the 1940 Trail rests largely on the shoulders of three: Dick Hawes, our dynamic and fiery editor, who has carried us through: Duane Lunger, business manager, Whose quota of ads and willingness to work has helped us tremendouslyg and Mrs. Richards, who has been the guiding hand and guardian angel of the "Trail" staff. iN MRS, W.

Future Farmers of America with their creed-to practice brotherhood, to honor rural opportunities and responsibilities, to develop those qual- ities of leadership which a Future Farmer should possess, and to help make a name for our school, our community, and state- and with every man a vital cog in our progressive machinery-this is the F. F. A. of Norman, Oklahoma. A total of sixty-five boys are enrolled as active members in Vocational Agri- culture. The class, made up of twenty- seven freshmen, sixteen sophomores, twelve juniors and ten seniors under the guidance of Mr. Foreman, Vocational Agriculture instructor, have improved their outstanding records over the previous years. In the first competitive event, the chap- ter won for the second consecutive year, the Oklahoma Farmer-Stockman cup, filled with a twenty-five dollar cash award. State Champion teams were: Class A and B Horticulture and the winning Entomology team. Two boys were awarded the Junior Master Farmer degree, which was the first time since the Norman Chapter has been organized that any boy has received this honor. The next feat accomplished by the Future Farmers was the winning of the weekly summer camp banner at Watts, Oklahoma. This event, based on compe- tition in sports, camp spirit, and attendance, was won for the fourth consecutive year by Norman High F. F. A. The boys carried away all the major trophies offered in the state fairs. These included a blue ribbon on our collective exhibit, and four state champion teams in poultry, dairy, terracing, and crops.

The poultry team, consisting of Ralph Matlock, Wayne Lessly, and J. L. Martin, Jr. won a trip to the Kansas City American Royal to represent Oklahoma in the National Poultry Judging Contest. The Dairy team, which placed first, was made up of Lincoln Whitaker, Ralph Matlock. The members of the crops team were Donald Capshaw, James McDaniel, and Dale Essary. At the Oklahoma City State Fair we again won the all-around trophy, finishing with the state champion teams in Dairy and Poultry. This again offered a trip to the Kansas City American Royal, in the field of Dairy Judging. Craving new competition, we sent our poultry to the Texas State Fair at Dallas. We swept the premiums from the Texas Future Farmers and had the champion bird of the show exhibited by J. L. Martin, Jr. A total result of the three state fairs showed that the boys had taken in over five hundred ribbons on their poultry and had made over 331200 in fair premiums, of which most has been spent improving the agricultural project of the boys. The boys have 3,000 head of poultry, 350 head of hogs, 4 dairy cows, 16 beef animals, 30 head of sheep, 11 horses, 17 acres of orchard and 42 head of turkeys, which are Queen actually owned by the boys in the chapter. We have given blood tests to over 7,000 birds, started 10,000 shrubs for beautifying homes, culled over 8,000 head of poultry, and pruned 23 grape vineyards. Other im- portant jobs that were done successfully by the Norman Future Farmers are as fol- lows: C15 holding the fourth invitational dairy judging contest, C25 sponsoring the fourth annual basket supper, and C35 giv- ing a box supper to raise a one-hundred dollar pledge for a contribution in the 344,000 Future Farmer Dormitory on the Oklahoma State Fair Ground. The Future Farmers have carried on a successful banking process within the chapter for the past years. This year over 35300 dollars, made on projects, prizes, and sale of stock, have been deposited in the savings bank. The money may be checked out at any time and there is no charge of interest on the deposited money. The boys also have a thrift bank that has loaned S150 to over thirty different boys, with a rate of six per cent interest for any amount of time convenient for the boyg however some type of security must be furnished with each loan. The presiding officers for the year were Raymond Wilcox, president, Ralph Mat- lock, secretary, and Mr. E. F. Foreman, advisor. Twenty-five regular business meetings were held by these officers during the year. .5q. "Music: Hath Power . . .H 0, NO! When I do my hands this way, I mean get soft. Do I have to draw a picture for some of you? All right, now let's try it again and this time watch me These words may be heard almost any day during the third hour coming from the music room in the junior high building. While these remarks may sound like those of a slave driver, it is only Mr. Milton Bradley directing his glee clubs. Even though his method might be construed as a firm one, it gets results, and "Milton", as he is called by most of his students is well-liked and appreciated. The vocal music department is larger this year than ever before. It is comprised of a large boys' glee club, an equally large girls' glee club, and a mixed chorus whose voices are hefty enough to raise the roof of the auditorium in senior high any day just by letting them emit naturally. The boys' and girls' quartets are very 7 .IH 7 at the beck and call of some civic or school organization or at the request of some individual who desires high class entertain- ment. Future aspirants to quartets will have a high mark to shoot at if they wish to equal or better the success of the three quartets this year. Mr. Bradley has started something new in Norman High-an a capella choir. There have been numbers sung without accom- paniment in previous years, but never be- fore has a music director in Norman High School had a complete a capella choir. Dur- ing its rehearsal about the most frequently heard Bradley expression is "Give us the pitch-ah, on key again. We are getting' better." Or "That's flat! Start over again, and this time, please try to stay on pitch." In the two years which he has taught in Norman High School, Mr. Bradley has brought about noticeable improvements in his department. The glee clubs and the soloists, coached by Mr. Bradley, walked generous with their talent and time and appear on programs many times each week off with enough honors to satisfy even the most ambitious.

MILL1CE'S MARCHXNG BAND READY Fon THE PARADE inet quartet have been organized and have given several performances in public. Early in the fall a drive was organized to purchase uniforms for the band. With the cooperation of the business men and different organizations in Norman this drive was successful and the result was the outfitting of the band in neat, black uniforms with orange trimmings and black and orange caps. The school purchased a new concert bass drum, two new bass horns, a bass violin, and a cello. These add as much to the band as do the new uniforms. At the beginning of school, much time was spent in marching practice. Some of the new members had a little trouble with the "Swiss Turn", "Military Turn", "Coun- ter March", but under the direction of of I 6 099' X3 v- eff Jerry Thompson, our very, very capable vest pocket edition of a Drum Major, the band kept in step and gave some splendid exhibitions at the football games last fall and in parades during the year. The marching band numbers 50 pieces and has added Drum Majorettes this year. Later in the year Juanita Rice, a very cute and pretty senior, was elected "Band Queen". In a special assembly and in an impressive ceremony, escorted by Robert Conklin, she was crowned by Jerry Thompson. If the organization continues to progress as it has in the last two years, Norman High School will have a band of which to be proud. The credit for organizing and building up a creditable band should be given to Mr. Glenn S. Millice. .63. vvpi A 3',.I..L at Because of the desire to improve their writing, the Creative Writing Club was organized three years ago. Its popularity has developed so rapidly that the member- ship has advanced to include twenty-five students in Senior High School. The publication of t'Penpoints,' maga- zine showing fruits of their labor has be- come an annual production. Ed Yates was elected editorg Margaret Brake, humor editorg Mary Ellen Boyd, poetry editor, and Vida Rae Wilson, business manager. In 1939 the club produced two winners, one in poetry writing and one in short story writing in the Invitational Writing Contest at Edmondg also in the State Contest at Oklahoma University a member tied for first place in the writing contest and won first in the poetry division. Mrs. Allie Mae Ward sponsors the club and the interest of the students for poetry has doubled since they write it themselves. Creative Writing Fmsr Row: Betty Ruth Hitchcock, Helen Huntington.

Dick Hawes is president of the organ- ization and presides at the regular meetings at which reports and experiments of com- mon interest are presented. The October field trip for specimens ended in a picnic supper and brought many interesting and enjoyable subject matters to their dis- cussions. An interesting development in the club's activities is the study of taxidermy. At present the organization has mounted about thirty birds of the hawk family. The club's mascot is a human skull belonging to a small Indian boy. This skull was found in a river bed near Norman. Mrs. Eva Solomon, botany and Zoology instructor, sponsors the club and their activities. .6u. ' Qur u b s big Home Economics FaoN'r Row: Thelma Brown, Merle Niederinaier.

The Future Homemakers Club was or- ganized in 1936 and today it has almost forty members in the senior division. Alice Strong has been the capable presi- dent for three years, a record for anyone. Other officers are Doris Warren, vice- presidentg Clara Furbee, secretary, Juanita Slajer, treasurer, and Priscilla Merkle, cor- responding secretary. The outstanding activities are the annual Mother and Daughter Banquet and the party for the F. F. A. organization. The club sent representatives to district Home Making Club meetings and attended the convention in Oklahoma City. To aid all incoming presidents and secretaries to know their duties, plans were completed for a new training school to be held in August at Stillwater. The club program includes studying hobbies, and the accomplishments of women in the world of today. The youngest club is the Spanish group organized last year in order to promote a better understanding and enjoyment of our Spanish speaking neighbors. Nelda Pearson served as president this yearg Virginia Sue Payne, vice-president: Alice Strong, secretaryg and Doris Earls, treasurer. Meetings were held on alternate Mon- days at the high school Where Spanish plays, games, and programs were enjoyed. Nelda Pearson won first in '39, in state competition in Spanish I. The final meeting of the held in April climaxed itself in a Mexican formal dinner held in the home of one of oui' members. Typical Spanish food was served accompanied by music, songs, and games of Spanish origin. Mr. Albert Brent, modern language instructor. sponsors the organization, as- sisted by Miss Vivian Harpole. .65. The Hi-Y club has been in Norman High School intermittently for eighteen years. Their sponsor is Paul White, formerly a member of the organization in Chickasha, and Mr. Albert Brent. The club maintains and upholds throughout the school and community higher standards of Christian character. Two of its capable leaders are Floyd Farmer, first semester president, and Bill Williams, president this semester. In March the club's members enter- tained dates at their annual picnic and dur- ing April all members were hosts to the Older Boys' Conference held in Norman. The theme was "Living Hi-Y" and more than two hundred and fifty youths from three states, Oklahoma, Texas, and Ar- kansas, took part in the annual sessions. This conference brought together boys interested in living their religion in such a way that all those around them realize they were doing so. Hi-Y FRONT Row: Stephen Miller, Thomas Lewis, L. C.

The journalism class of 1940, sponsored by Mrs. Hermione Briscoe, has produced a weekly news sheets that compiled and spread valuable tid-bits of gossip or news. Through the efforts of Tom Hunt, Nelda Pearson, and Tom Howard as editors, the paper has been an asset to school life. The Tuesday edition with its variety of news was looked forward to with a great deal of anticipation by all. The Norman Tiger has a great repu- tation for winning in newspaper contests throughout the state. For 1939 the Tiger placed first in the newspaper section class in the contest conducted by the Oklahoma Interscholastic Press Association. When the judges compiled score sheets of all papers entered, the Norman Tiger netted 862 points out of a possible 1000. The Tulsa School Life, put out by Tulsa's three high schools, was the only student news- paper in the state making a higher score. -66.

Norman High's dramatic de- partment, including members of the director's staff, stage crew, play staff, and casts, attained new heights this year with first rate performances and record- breaking crowds. Under the direction of Miss Irene Shaul, who returned to her Alma Mater this term as a teacher, plays were given for student enter- tainment, state contests, and radio. Talent among new stu- dents was rapidly discovered and former stage-veterans once again shone in the spotlight. Lines from "The Brat", the all school play given to raise funds for the speech depart- ment, were repeated among stu- dents for weeks afterward, while echos of laughter and ap- plause for "Big Hearted Her- bert", the senior performance, are still resounding in the halls. YMBITION - toil - hope - success - then we turn to the delightful moments of fun and laughter. Running parallel with the stern laws of Duty to which we all must bow if we progress, life holds an abundance of joy and merriment for all of us. From the first day of school we have fun-our greeting to our classmates after a summer's separation, our bus trips to out-of-town games, our parts in the plays, our wins in the state contests, and on and on to the grand finale-the exciting days o f the Junior- Senior reception and the glorious day of graduation. Thus we come to the closing section of our year book and we hope you can laugh with us as you see, 1.91, review, a panorama of the enjoyable sidelights in a high school whose paramount goal is to impart knowledge, build character, and teach students how to enjoy living.

Through the past four years, as through the pages of this book, we seniors have sought knowledge, worked, built bodies, and learned leadershipg and into our entire program has gone more than a smattering of fun and good-natured horseplay. It is only as graduation time approaches that we begin to realize that these happy school days are not to go on forever. All too shortly our days at Norman High School will draw to a close. The friends we have made and the things we have done will soon be left behind and the virgin fields of the future will be laid open for our entrance. From those fields some few of us shall reap great success and even fame, while others shall gather only what they need to get along on. But what of the friends we leave behind, and what of any reminders of us that may remain? I C I l ONLY ECHOS REMAIN Each individual member of the Trail staff carries in his heart the hope that this book may be one of the outstanding achievements of the senior class. But that is not all. Each senior who leaves Norman High School this spring has left his mark on some phase of school lifeg and we hope that these impressions may go to help build up a constructive spirit that will become part of the fine tradition of Norman High School. 80- 4fw4dxQ4zr-9241220914446 'dawvwvwff ffm -4244!
