The installation of floodlights, giving twenty foot-candle visibility on the playing field, was begun by the contracting electric companies on September 9 and completed ten days later, in time for the Switch to be thrown for the first game of the season: Norman 14, Sapulpa 0. To climax the speed of installation, exciting enough in itself, Norman'S halfback, jack Lock- ett, scored the first two touchdowns. No matter how many future games are played here, those touchdowns, the first ever made under lights on Owen Field, will remain a record thrill for Norman High School fans.

But this year there is a difference. It was through his directive genius in co-ordi- nating the work of Norman business men and of school and university officials that Owen Field at the University of Oklahoma was placed under floodlights in September of 1947. The football games of Norman High School have been played there before large crowds appreciative of the green field, the Gothic buildings shadowed in the background, and the autumn night sky. We wish to thank Mr. Garrison for this special gift to our school, and also for returning, after extensive military service, to the field of school administration and to the system in which he worked for sixteen years previously. We were glad to see him again, not only as Colonel Gar- rison, but also as just Mr. Garrison. We respectfully and gratefully dedicate the 1948 TRAIL to Mr. J. Don Garrison, superin- tendent of Norman public schools.

FOSTER President JOHNSON Treasurer Vice-President Leaders on ducation rail Deciding the policies and plans of the school system, the Board of Education-consisting of Mr. D. K. Boyd, president, Mr. Neil R. Johnson, vice-president, Mr. Lynn Bullard, Mr. J. A. Staedlin, and Mr. E. F. McComb- has shown itself most efficient. With Mrs. S. B. Spradlin as secretary and clerk, Mr. W. K. Newton as auditor, and Mr. J. W. Foster as treasurer, the board has energetically car- ried out its duties and received unanimous commendation. The board members are all outstanding business men and leaders in activities of the cit . As an exemplification of wit and diplomacy of Norman High, Mr. Lance Ewbank, our principal for the past four years, has accom- plished perfection in the completion of school affairs. Born in Argonia, Kansas, Mr. Ewbank, as an infant of one, moved with his family to the Cherokee Strip in Oklahoma, where he re- ceived his grade and high school education. MR. VV. K. NEVVTON MR. LYNN Auditor BULLARD l6l After his mariage in 1923, he attended North- western State Teachers College at Alva, and received the ba:helor's degree in social science. In the following summer he studied at the University of Oklahoma and received a master's degree in education. Mr. Ewbank served as assistant coach and history instructor at Cherokee, as coach at Sayre, as coach at Cherokee again, and as coach and principal at Chelsea. After four years in Wagoner he moved to Norman, where he became principal of our high school. As is his past, his present is also exemplary of experience and tact. Mrs. S. B. Spradlin and Mrs. Ina Delattre, representing the feminine side of theschool, have helped to bring Norman High to a peak in efficiency and progress. Mrs. Spradlin has proved herself indispensable as cashier of school funds. As school registrar, Mrs. De- lattre, whose zest and amiability have made her popular with all students, acts as Mr. Ew- bank's assistant. -George Cobb MR. J. A. MR. E. F.

Cowan Senior High School Norman Public Schools of Junior High School In Norman High School there are many people who deserve recognition for the Work which they do, but who seldom receive any. The people to whom I refer are the custodians and the school bus drivers. When we come to school on cold morn- ings we always find a nice Warm, clean build- ing. These things are taken for granted. We really never stop to think that our custodians have worked late the evening before to get the building clean and then have arrived early in the morning so that by the time we arrive the building will be warm. The custodians in Norman High are Mr. Louie-L. Mize. Mr. Ray Evans, and Mrs. Ray Evans. The junior High custodians are Mr. and Mrs. B. B. Cowan. Mr. Mize is the head custodian. One of his big jobs this year has been taking care of the new jeep station wagon which the school purchased this year. The bus drivers of Norman High School are men we could not get along Without. They are on the job in spite of the weather, morn- ings and evenings. Our bus drivers are A. E. Essary, S. D. Liner, J. Don Garrison, jr., and Carl Seeby. -Barbara Fisher Mr. A. E.

Each class of us graduates with our own special memories of high school davs and the satisfaction that this was "our', year. All of us in our own small way come to realize that things will never be quite the same. No one else will find exactly the same collection of junk in his Fibber McGee closet locker, there are no more all night jaunts for us or quite the same jokes with exactly the same people, few of us will cheer again for a team because of our personal interest, or have the fun of planning a prom one year and enjoying ourselves as guests the next. How vividly we recall Homecoming 1947 style, the impressive coronation and the thrill of marching down the aisle to the strains of Pomp and Circum- stmzce, the football game under Owen field lights and the victory dance afterward!

The junior class has compiled an enviable record of achievements ever since it first entered the campus of NHS. There has always been a pre- vailing desire to subdue and conquer all obstacles, no matter how apparent- ly insurmountable. Everyone is given an adequate chance to be a vital part of the junior class. Our activities make every person share in our glory and feel he is essential to our progress and is needed for the ultimate success that our class aspires to attain. We started the year by electing an all-male aggregation of class officers: Ted Reynolds, president, Maurice Holland, vice-president, james Argo, secretary-treasurer. We chose Mrs. Bernice Mowdy, Mrs. J. B. Williams, Mrs. Racheal Kelly, and Miss Nadine Runyan as sponsors. This year the TRAIL queen Was elected from the ranks of the juniors. Wylodean Cornelison was the second girl to win this honor from the class l24l ,ff 5 .flaw :Et FFIFH ISC! E 1 1 0. at l 5, AW- Mo I Z fl ., are of '49. Although the TRAIL queen candidates this year were not spon- sored by the classes, the juniors rallied to the aid of their class member. When the race was over, everyone sighed with relief mingled with pride, knowing he had played an important part in bringing about the outcome. All through the year we raised money for the junior-senior reception. Our tireless efforts were rewarded with a reception, impressive and beautiful, thoroughly satisfactory to all of us. Juniors placed entrants in every one of the school's activities. It is im- possible to list all these prominent in- dividuals in so small a space. The junior class now stands looking back in retrospect and ahead in antici- pation of blazing new trails to un- charted fields in the time that we have left in high school. In ending our school year, the junior class is leaving behind it an en- viable record in athletics, scholarship and activities. We are loking for- ward with a great deal of eagerness to our senior year, a year we know will be full of lasting friendships, of hap- piness, and of honest endeavor. -Charles Spradlin I2 Sl junior Sponsors are left to right: Miss Nadine Runyan, Mrs. XfVinifred XVilliams Mrs. Bernice Mowdy, Mrs Rachael Keely v 1 'Y ,- I fi I i l Upper left: Maurice Holland and Sidney Durham conversing while some- body's hand tries to join them Upper right: Vincent Miller and joe Birchum seem interested in the girls, but harry XVallace, who is 'lgoing steady," seems bored Lower left: Martha YVashington should give the hat back, judging from Buck Spradlin's haircut Lower right: Like many girls, Bennie Shultz is up in the air over Bill Fox X sign A D 1 if CAROL ANSEL 3 ki I JANIES ARGO AS."

And if past records mean any- thing, things are likely to keep popping all the time we're here. Last year we ran the seniors' candidate for TRAIL Queen a close second, only to be nosed out in the last moments of the contest. This year, in another hard-fought race, the sopho- mores again finished as runners-up. Our can- didate, Gail Hughes, was defeated in the final count by a heart-breaking 4000 votes. Sopho- more Norma jean Black was elected Norman High Sweetheart in March. When, in our hrst class meeting of the year, we elected class officers, the boys made a clear sweep of the election, much to the girls' chagrin. Karl Von Keller was elected presi- enderfeet dent, Birch Rose, vice -president, Dexter Thomas, secretary-treasurer. We selected Mrs. H. C. Davis, Mrs. Inez Rolette, and Mr. Ford Michael as sophomore sponsors. Sophomore representative in the all-school play, "Adam's Evening," was Gail Hughes, cast as Rosita Fragoni, the doctor's innocent wife who spent most of her time evading Adamls overly - sympathetic mother - in - law. Tenth graders backstage were Richard Har- kins and jeroald Andrews, who did a fine job of working out the sound effects and con- trolling the general confusion which normally accompanies a high school production. Karl Von Keller, King Price, Jr., Bob Woodrow, and Vincent Miller are the four sophomore boys who helped Norman High W I-1 ogvuo qu Xp - 4 g .

You will be seeing more of them on the gridiron next year. In basketball, baseball, and track sophomores are again well represented. Although there are none on the regular basketball team, the 'B' team is almost completely made up of sophomore boys. They are Rutherford Brett, Harlan McKenzie, john Crane, Edwin VVal- ton, Karl Von Keller, Hoyl Lockett, David Glander, Robert Slagle, Edward Freeman, and Norris Smith. A large number of sophomore girls, too numerous to mention here, joined the Ginger- snap Pep Club to back our NHS teams with spirit and yells. Many others made their con- tribution by wearing the black and orange uniforms of the Norman High School Band. In the parade preceding the Homecoming game the float from Miss Sugden's homeroom, which is primarily composed of sophomores, placed first. Two tenth grade girls, Margaret NHS batting form Smith and Margaret Ann Rankin, rode as mer- maids on the winning float. The sophomores set something of a record scholastically this year by putting six class members in the National Honor Society: King Price, jr., Barbara Searle, Patricia Searle, Hoyl Lockett, Richard Harkins, and Mary Ellen Casey. At the first of the school year, sophomore representatives chosen for the TIGEI1 and the TRAIL staffs were: Patsy Hallock, TIGER, Hoyl Lockett and Mary Ellen Casey, TIRAIL. Two sophomores, Patsy Hallock and Mary Ellen Casey, represented the TIGER and TRAIL respectively at the Oklahoma Interscholastic Press Association meeting. We sophomores are only at the beginning of our NHS trail. The road before us is straight and clear, rough in places, perhaps, but full of many memorable friends and good times, leading in the end to our graduation as the Class of 1950. -Mary Ellen Casey l31l Everybody wants to get into the act p YS, , i Q' 4.27 . 1 .ni , ,, ,A , 1 ' ' ..

Years ago, when our country was young, and the super-highways of today were merely narrow cattle trails, our predecessors, the col- orful settlers of America, struggled to cross this continent and to bring the boundaries of our nation closer together. They had a strong desire to establish a land where their children could pursue knowledge and make themselves intelligent men, capable of governing them- selves and of improving their society. Their freedoms still exist for us today, and their dream of the opportunity to learn is greater than ever before. Those pioneers of the past blazed many trails for us to venture upon. One of the most valuable of these is the "Trail of Knowledge." Knowledge is the trail to the success of an individual. Every day we are beginning to see the Hnal goal, which, when reached by faith- ful endeavor, will bring us to the satisfaction of individual success. Knowledge is a trail, not to a place, but to an understanding. An individual cannot ac- complish success alone, but must work toward his goal with those around him who are at the same time advancing toward their desti- nation. One of the most important phases of education is to learn to understand others. Knowledge is the trail to peace. When men learn to work together in a small community, they are broadening themselves and making the idea of world co-operation seem nearer. Through learning comes the opportunity for all people, rich and poor, of all races and l35l creeds, to meet on common ground. When there is a meeting of free minds, a new mile- stone has been passed. For surely individual success, understanding between two individ- uals, world peace and co-operation, are all milestones on the greatest Trail of Knowledge, the Trail of Exploration and Discovery. There will always be pioneers to explore the undiscovered enigma of the universe. There will be those who will, through diligent study, solve the complex equations that hold in their solution the answer to the mysteries of our solar system. There will be those who will now, as did our fathers in the past, dream dreams, and conceive ideas, and eventually show us the incredible simplicity in the things which we now find intricate. There will be some who follow this phase of the Trail of Knowledge who will lag behind, as some of our ancesters stayed "close to the past." There will be others who will forge ahead, break new trails, and progress far. No matter which we do, the opportunity is ours. A wise man once said, "New worlds are for the young to explore." As the ancient sea cap- tains braved raging storms at sea and over- came the strong currents of the mysterious depths, as the rugged, proud pioneers of the colorful past conquered the hardships of the frontier trails, so we, who are young, can be discoverers and explorers of the yet unknown, as we travel over the vast Trail of Knowledge -a trail which is wide and stretches far-a trail which will never end. -Harriett Rutledge 1" il . . t 1 .,,,......,.,..,M1 'R A 4 nn- ' .

Eighth grade class officers elected by the student body were as follows: president, jannette T h o ni a s 3 vice-president, Marion Smith, secretary, Carol jean Blackwood, treas- urer, Ann Grisso. Ninth grade oflicers are: president, Larry Flood, vice-president, Buster Bates, secretary, Helene Harris, and treasurer, Sally Waclter. The students also took an active part in the "A" Band and UB" Band. The ninth grade boys took part in the FFA, and the girls kept up with them in the FHA and Fl-IO. The freshman football team had a very successful year by winning Hve and losing three games. The basketball team coached by Arlo 'LSkivey', Davis won the Cleveland County Tourna- ment. Backing these boys was a group of girls called the Hjuniorsnapsf' The cheerleaders elected by the group were Ann Grisso, Bette jean Moore, Eve Mae Teegardin, and Helene Harris. The chorus and the glee clubs also had many junior high students. The school generously contributed to the Red Cross, March of Dimes, and many other needy causes. We here in junior high sincerely hope that we will be welcomed into senior high. We hope we have made a good record, and will try to continue to do so throughout our high school education. -Larry Flood X --TW, , -, ,l sf I . ..w,.7Uw 1'f': fit.

"Dub" XVooten, Harley HDoc RD TO This has been one of those seasons to which the Norman players can look back with pride and tell their grandchildren, "l played on Nor- man's 1947 team." Norman won nine games and lost but one game. The Tigers had every- thing to make a winning team-wonderful coaching, great team spirit, and the best back- ing in the world. Mr. Garrison, our sports- loving superintendent, was largely responsible for their getting Oklahoma University's Owen Field, the best high school football field in the nation.

Harley "Doc" LaFevers, Norman's young head coach who lives football, handled his task with the finesse of a veteran. "Dub" Wooten, former all Big Six end from O. U., took much of the load off Doc's shoulders by helping with the line, and won his way into the hearts of all the players. "Tex" Barnes brought his freshman team a long way. Their experience under Tex will be invaluable to their future high school ath- letic activities. Charles "Birddog" Coleman was the Tigers' excellent offensive end. 'fBird's" pass-snag- ging won him a berth on the all-district team. When the Tigers went on defense, Charles Stowe took over for Birddog and was prob- ably one of the best defensive ends in the state. Tackle N. johnson, one of the finest linemen ever to don a Tiger uniform, won berths on every all-state team out. Ted Reynolds, left guard, was probably the best offensive lineman on the squad. Walter Ratliff, pivot man and line-backer, was the smallest man in the line, but his hustle and determination made up for his lack of weight. 1541 Guard B. Dufran battered his way through larger opponents and made all-district. David LeCrone kept up the family's good name by playing an outstanding game at tackle. Philip Kidd, end, really stacked up the inter- ference that came his way. Phil received the only serious injury of the season 'when he broke his foot on the last play of the last game. jack Lockett, left half, the Bengals' leading scorer, won a berth on the TULSA WORLD,S all- state team and also made all-district. Roy Hamilton was the Tigers' quarterback. I-Iis running, passing, and kicking won him a place on the all-district team. Bill Fox, Tiger right half, vicious tackler and hard runner, had rather play football than eat. Norman had two fine fullbacks who battled their way for a starting berth each Week, Pete Barnard, the mighty mite who weighed only 145 pounds, and "Chalkie" Russell, a smooth, swivel-hipped runner. Reserves were chin deep. Charles Haney, an able junior, replaced VValt at center. Eu- gene Akin, Allan Turner, john Buckingham, and Earl Thompson saw plenty of action. At tackle, jerry Adams, Charles Goodmiller, Vincent Miller, 'and Bobby Woodrow were ready to ill in for johnny and Dave. Three other fine ends besides Stowe will be back next year-King Price, jr., james Argo, and j. Edward Portwood. All-State Tackle, J. N. johnson adjusts one of the new plastic helmets he will wear in the all-state game in August Sam Wilson, jerry Garrett, and Jack Mc- Dermott, seniors, saw plenty of action as backs. Karl Von Keller, jimmy Ewbank, junior Diehm, and jimmy Cobb will all be back next year to assist Bill Fox in the backfield. Where would a team be without managers? Bill Downing and J. L. Parks held these rough positions for the Tigers. Everybody remembers those ten thrill- packed games in which one of the best teams in Norman's history romped to victory after victory through a tough schedule. -Jack Lockett JUNIOR HIGH PLAYERS, Top Row, left to right: Max I-Iuddlcston, Donny Lynn, George Evans, Pat Thompson, Sj dney Gaylor, Glen Pierson, Virgal McClure, Mike Pybas, Lynn Foreman Middle Row: Kenneth Hames, manager, jimmy Dodd, Charles Ridenhoxv, Paul XVilkerson, Robert Bradley, jerry Bradley jerry Bullard, james Brunoldi, Richard Morten, "Tex" Barnes, coach Iiorfom Row: Hcrshal Tadlock, XVilliam Vandcnburg, Orville johnson, Alvin Barsmith, Buster Bates, John Etter, Leonard Pace ISS' MID-STATE CO-CHAMPS-Top Rofw, left to right: Coach "Doc" LaFevers, Charles Coleman, jim Bumgarner, David LeCrone, John VVidlake, WValter-Ratliif J.

Starting slow, the Norman team took a hard-fought decision from the Putnam City trapping the Wolves and gaining a chance at the State play-offs in Oklahoma City. The Bengals drew the Pawhuska Huskies for the first round play and sent them back to their lairs minus a few teeth and claws. The next night they met a strong Tulsa Central team that had shown great skill previously in Pirates on the Pirates' own maples 31 to 20 and downed a hard fight- ing Duncan team by the solid score of 32 to 22.

The Capitol Hill Redskins also tied a knot in the Tigers' tail to the tune of 41 to 42 in an over- time thriller, thus throwing the title of Mid- State into a two-way tie between Norman and Classen. The Tigers closed one of the most success- ful seasons in years with the Chickasha Chicks taking home the bacon in a rough and tough tilt that launched the Tigers into the Regional Tournament at Shawnee. Entering the semi- finals by a first round bye, the team met Cushing and soundly trounced them to gain access to the finals against Shawnee. Norman made possibly its best showing of the year men, six are lost by gradua- tion. Among these are: Roy Hamilton, high scorer and all-state guard, Jack Lockett, guard on state-tournament team, J. N. johnson, hustling, dependable forward, Charles Coleman, all mid-state center, Sam Wilson, hard-to-beat basketeer, and winding up the procession is Walter Ratliff, the ever- popular substitute. Six substitutes return for another year: jun- iors llohn Widlake, James Argo, Bill Fox, Charles Stowe, and jim Ewbank, together with sophomore jim Bumgarner help to keep Nor- man's pennant hopes alive. Any team that can beat the record established this year 23-4 should be a team to watch.

D 'g Lower left: Returning Baseball Lettermen li l Minor Sports In the last few years at Norman High minor sports have become more import- ant and new ones have been introduced. Track, coached by Harley "Doc" La- Fevers, has become so popular that thirty boys are now reporting, and a junior high team is being started. Last year Norman placed nine men in the state finals and came in third in the state meet, where formerly only a limited number of boys qualified. Among the returning lettermen are Charles Cole- man, Roy Hamilton, jack Lockett, jerry Lemon, Walter Ratliff and junior Diehm, along with "Rustyl' Brett and jeroald Andrews, who placed consist- ently while in junior high. Arlo "Skivey" Davis is again coaching the baseball team and is expected to have a good year since almost all the boys played American Legion ball last sum- mer. Jay Walton, a sophomore, was considered one of the best Legion pitch- ers in the state. Also, over half of last yearis lettermen are returning. They are J. B. Dufran, N. Johnson, Sam Wilson, jim Ewbank, Harlan McKenzie, joe Lain, Lloyd Garner, Charles Haney, Bobby Barnard, Aubrey Davis and jack McDermott. This year Howard Brighton intro- duced swimming to Norman High. The team is made up mostly of sophomores and freshmen with Dave Glander and johnny Keith placing in last year's jun- ior AAU meet. Tentatively planned is a tennis team with many good players awaiting the decision of the school. We are sure Norman High School will continue doing as well in minor sports as in major sports. -Hoyl Lockett ACTI ITIE usual Marianne Isom, joan johnson, and Sam Wilson at Norman High School entrance, the doorway to a hundred student activities Sam XVilson Shirley Crisman Charles Spradlin Charlotte Gibson Clonnie Davis Helen Tullius jack Lockett Marianne lsom Mark Melton If you look at the art work in this book, you should know that it is the work of jerry ur rail The old VVestern song ulsittle joe the XVrangler" could have been a fitting pseudo- nym for each member of the TRAIL staff at one time or another this vear. Every one was a strong individualist, and no idea advanced by any other staff member could equal his own. But after much wrangling and compromise, thebtheme of our book was decided upon. We liked the theme of advancement over a trail because We found it a fitting simile for our progress through school and life, and it exemplified the section of the country in which we live. Since nearly half the staff were carry-overs from last year, we who were new to yearbook activities were ably guided by their experi- ence. The responsibilities and problems of pro- ducing an annual fell largely on the shoulders of Charlotte Gibson, editor. Other veterans were Franklin Hunt, senior photographer, Marianne lsom, senior editor, jerry Lemon, art editor, Shirley Crisman, feature writer and copy checker, Sam Wilson, layout editor, Jack Lockett, senior sports editor, Barbara Fisher, feature writer, George Cobb, activity editor, and Hoyl Lockett, sophomore sports editor. New staff members were Harriett litr- ledge, assistant editor, Maurice Holland, business manager, Clonnie Davis, assistant business manager, Charles "Buck" Spradlin, junior editor, Mary Ellen Casey, sophomore editor, Helen Tullius, corresponding secre- tary and typist, Mark Melton, assistant Lemon, Golda Rice, and joyce Cox ' A fcxv members of the 'TRAIL staff hard at work l60l photographer, jimmy Ewbank, junior sports editor, Golda Rice and Joyce Cox, artists, and Larry Flood, junior high editor. The process of putting together a yearbook was completely foreign to the newcomers, and for the first two weeks, every time Miss Searcy called for the "dummy," we all looked guiltily at one another, wondering who was today's victim. Inside of a month, however, we learned, much to our relief, that the de- vice called the "dummy" was neither staff member nor sponsor, but a blueprint of the completed TRAIL. To our knowledge were added the facts that "layouts" are designs for pages, spreads are not related to cheese, but are two facing pages, and cut copy has nothing to do with scissors, but is picture identification, that "Miss Mortisel' in jerry Lemon's layout was not a new faculty member, but a space blanked out of a cut, that bleeding is not a penalty levied against staff members who fail to meet their deadlines, but means extending a picture to the edge of a page. Our sponsors were Miss Lucile Searcy who supervised the literary and photographic angles, and Mrs. Davis who struggled with the finances, sales campaign, and concessions. The 1947-48 TRAIL staff has worked hard to produce this TRAIL. We hope it is a repre- sentative book, and one that will meet with the approval and satisfaction of the entire student body. We want you to enjoy it now, and in future years, when you look back through it, to renew your high school mem- ories and make them vivid realities once again. -Harriett Rutledge -Mary Ellen Casey jerry Lemon Barbara Fisher Maurice Holland jimmy Ewbank Harriett Rutledge Franklin Hunt Hoyl Lockett Mary Ellen Casey George Cobb Left to right: Mrs. H.

To the spec- tators of the games, the Gingersnaps were the back- bone of the cheering section, but to the graduating Gingersnaps themselves the club meant something more, something better. To them it was the last op- portunity to be really part of a Norman High School football game. Three of the most interesting events for the Ginger- snaps this year were the three trips to out-of-town football games. On returning, two of these excursions met with sad fates, and the girls failed to see Norman till dawn of the following day. Many many old jokes, some good, some bad, were recalled to mind those weary nights. But despite these mishaps the only sad Other officers, including Betty Bryant, vice-president, Ann Gibson, re- porter, Marjorie Furbee, sergeant-at-arms, Charlotte Gibson, secretary Marianne Isom, sergeant-at-arms, Tollie Tickenson, treasurer -ell: "IT" If 6-ll faces during, the vigil were those of the girls who had to work the next day. Under the leadership of Mrs. McDermott and the presidency of Nancy Matlock the club experienced their best season yet. In November the Gingersnaps staged a tremendous- ly successful informal dance at the Union Ball Room. Everyone was there with bells on, dancing under beautiful, low-hanging bright balloons which gave the final, decorative touch to a Wonderful evening. In December they surged back into action during basketball season. Often more than twice a week the orange and black uniforms appeared and the Ginger- snaps never let down. They were there every time cheering each member of the squad to victory after V1CtOfy'. And so we have touched just a few of the events that the 1947-48 Gingersnaps will remember forever, events that are now just vivid memories in a trail of a truly great club. -Shirley Crisman Cheerleaders, left to right: Peggy Bittman, Joanna Andreskowski, VVylo- dean Cornelison, Shirley Crisman, Mary Sue Butler, and mascot, jerry The game of the year I , Our sponsor, Mrs. Hugh McDermott L 5 - 4 -1,-,.-1-v- o 2 ix , .

Robinson the Norman High School Band be- gan the school year with enthusiasm. During football season its members were present at every home game. In the bright lights of Owen Field their snappy uniforms of orange and black made -a vivid picture in contrast to the green of the field. Able Drum Majorette jeannene Wampler and the strutting twirlers were all that was necessary for a perfect marching season. Preceding the gaily colored floats down Main Street, the band helped to make this year's Homecoming one of the most memor- able and colorful on record. On Band Day competition with a number of other state bands ended with a friendly invitation to an exciting O. U. football game. In December Mr. Robinson delivered a car full of outstanding musicians to the Still- water Band Clinic, where all who attended gained useful experience. At the all-state or- chestra clinic meet in Norman, under the di- rection of Victor Alessandro, all of the NHS participants were truly inspired. With its WNAD broadcasts and other ac- tivities the band was kept stepping until the February concert. With Mr. J. D. Rambo as president the Parents' Organization proved itself as beneficial as that of last year. All members of the band were proud of their oficers-jerry Adams, president, Jack McDermott, vice-president, ' Joanne Darow, secretary, Betty Lou Rambo, treasurer, and James Billingsley, reporter-and their pretty queen, Tollie Dickenson, who was crowned in the annual coronation concert. The twenty seniors graduating this year will truly miss the band's enthusiasm and good times.

The Norman chapter consists of twenty- two girls ranging from sophomores to seniors. Each girl is enrolled in home economics. In November Ann Gibson became president when LaVerne Gill moved to Washington State. Delegates from the Norman chapter attend many conventions and conferences in the sur- rounding towns of Chickasha, Purcell, and Oklahoma City. Each month the organization has a social, and it has entertained the FFA and had a Christmas and Halloween party. All of these social activities enliven the serious preparation for future home making. -Barbara Fisher Ann Gibson, president, Pat Ogle, secre- Mrs. H. A. LeCrone, Mrs. A. F.

He helped to organize this chapter of Future Farmers of America, and since that time he has taught over seven hundred and fifty boys. Under his influence and guidance these boys have made this chapter a two-time receiver of the gold emblem for being one of the best chapters in the United States. He has produced more than forty state champion judging teams as well as many individual champions. He has been and still is a great benefit to this community. His personality and ability as a leader have made every FFA boy feel extremely proud to have him for a teacher and friend. -Clonnie Davis Mr. E. F. Foreman Clonnie Davis and his Chester White M. I.

They rated second in contest participation among two hundred Oklahoma chapters, a comparatively good score. Their poultry team, composed of joe Murphy, M. l. Neher, and Clonnie Davis, placed third at four consecutive contests. The dairy team, represented by Hansmeyer, Doyle Green, Bobby Champeau, joe Murphy, and Clonnie Davis, placed Hrst at Ardmore. A terracing team, Dwayne Butler and Charles Conkling, placed first at Tulsa. As the year passed, a new contest was instituted, the Soil Conservation Contest at Guthrie. The Norman boys determined to win this contest and did with joe Murphy and Clonnie Davis placing sec- ond and third respectively. The other member of the team, Alvie Musgrave, placed ninth. In the show arena Norman has had a better than average year. jim Cobb exhibited the grand cham- pion trio of White Plymouth Rock chickens at the Oklahoma Poultry Show in Oklahoma City. joan johnson was selected as FFA Queen and was crowned at the annual parent-and-son banquet. Officers chosen to preside over the chapter activities included Clonnie Davis, president, joe Murphy, vice- president, M. I. Neher, secretary, Doyle Green, treasurer, Billy Hansmeyer, reporter, and Lloyd Garner, sentinel. -Clonnie Davis l77l Clonnie Davis, President joe Murphy, Vice-President M. I.

Homecoming was proclaimed bv Mr. Fw- bank in the Norman TIGER, Thursday, Novem ber 9, and the events began early Friday morn ing, at eight o'clock, to be exact, with a rehears- al by Joanna Andreskowski, Football Queen, her attendants and escorts, and the band and Gingersnaps for the ceremonies to be present- ed at the half-time of the game that night. Next came the Homecoming assembly. Jerry Lemon presided as master of ceremonies. He introduced first the queen's attendants and es- corts, and then Joanna Andreskowski, who re- ceived the royal crown from jack Lockett, captain for the Homecoming game. Features of the program, dedicated to the queen, includ- ed a vocal solo by Mary Alexander, and an Al jolson imitation by Jack Bumgarner, an NHS alumnus. Buddy Smith, former letterman, in- troduced the large group of alumni. At half-time intermission of the game, the band and Gingersnaps marched to the center of the field to welcome the Homecoming crowd. Mrs. MacDermott and the Ginger- snaps deserve high praise for their wonderful Homecoming program. -Harriett Rutledge fgp to bottom: second place float, FHA, third place float, art: parade through business district, first place float, Home Room 13, corona- tion assembly. ,113 v ,gf D S 'WA XQCW PIC I URE X if it "' ff! ff e m x f' f x X I .0"Sx, , -fr X ' X X Kring x X F ,X 5 X X if .bs jf: Q0 I fy , m gzesg, B f at 2 or V X X ' O1-1 ' 80 u ll i k L.: 44 :ev 'Q :' ': X 0 09 f X faxvk ' 'R- f J 'QD' 3 f X 53- tif' f ff 2 ' , " NS , If g- ' We' !
