Only a shadow ot 1949 can be recorded in this "book ot the year," but in times to come that shadow should serve as a curtain call tor the happy days spent atop "Steer hill," Fort Worth, Texas. mY'm?nw un., to Q Q Y' 'Y tv i ,Q ar 'N il if l ws? was I A . was W ' - M lm , I Q c , R .ssc W'-it ,Ng egg ms M 4 Q M aff 55? ggi Q if HQ M l...i..,g ff: c Mm and " ancful' M ' ' " ei .fmqw Zum ln summer or winter "the school on the hill" shines brightly in the photographs and memories of its students. 'Twas in 1937 that Steer- landers packed their textbooks and moved to the "big whlte school" that had recently been built amid 32 acres ot campus beauty. At that time 1100 students overtlowecl the classrooms that are now 'filled by 700 students and 43 taculty members. Szlffaoueifwi of ca Qeaa - - 1949 GMM pozdanafified, N t. .t.I fdlhlelm I ,.,.

Meacham, of the Fort Worth Public School Ad- ministration, are the two strong axles around which this great toslc revolves. These are the men who plan your education by appropriating funds, regulating courses, securing teachers, and supervising the hundreds of otner things that are required by on efficient, modern school system. Mr. Moore has worked up from teacher, vice- principcl, principal, and assistant superintendent to his present position as superintendent of the Fort Worth Public Schools. And, by the way, he was once a student at North Side. Mr. Meacham, too, has long been well known among educators and students ct his post of assistant superintendent in charge of high schools. adam, Jleacfd The corralling and branding ot a herd ot 700 North Side Steers is alt in the day's work of Foreman Ernest F. Sellars and Top Hands Margaret Hooker and L. L. Mcfombs. lt isn't an easy business to keep a modern school on the trail without any stampedes, but these three wranglers hum their soft songs ot wisdom and cheer and keep the Hands and the Herd happy and satisfied. It takes a heap ot ridin' to keep the Herd pointed toward its goal, and some- times the poky ones even have to be pushed a little, but when the Herd reaches the end of this trial and steps on the train toward lite's distant markets. they'll be a stronger, cleaner breed 'cause these Top Hands got them started on a good drive. 0 Principal Ernest F. lMan About Schoolj Sellars is the man to look tor when some- thing needs tixing around Steerland. 0 Mr. L.

These youth- ful prospectors will carry with them quite a tew nuggets ot golden memories as they begin their long tre into the tuture, tor the "big white school" has been a rich gold mine ot memories. The largest and brightest ot these nuggets were tound, naturally, during the senior year. Re- member when the senior class rings arrived and hand-shaking greetings jumped to a new high? Or remember the luxurious Senior Days when graduates-to-be received the royal homage betitting their high positions? December 18 was the day ot days tor the mid-term class, while June seniors cele- brated "their" day on April 27 by donning their trilliest dresses and dressiest suits to become the envy ot the rest ot the school. Both classes were honored with luncheons in the school cateteria and theatre parties during the atternoon. Senior Day entertainment was turnished tor the student body by members ot the graduating class in special assembly programs, atter which silver steer head service awards and citizenship awards were presented. Graduation glamour came with the tormal seniorudinner dances. Mid-term graduates had theirs ltree-tor-nothingl on Tuesday, January 18, in the North Side Recreation Building, while Colonial Country Club was scheduled tor the June dinner dance on May 5. Another golden nugget was the baccalaureate sermon. For the January seniors it was at the North Fort Worth Baptist Church on the morning ot January 231 tor the June grads it was at Farrington Field on May 22. June seniors had an extra "good time" planned tor them-a senior picnic and swimming party on May 20. The commencement ceremonies, with their last good-byes, are the brightest nuggets among all the golden memories ot the senior year. For mid-term seniors, January 28 marked their last day as mem- bers ot the student body. Honor grad- uates Jean Clark and Cleon, Flanagan "stole the show" presented that night in the North Side High School Auditorium. May 31 is the day to be remembered by June "Forty-niners" 'for 'twas then that the alma mater rang truest to their ears as they received those little white notes tied with maroon ribbons. 0 Bobby Woody, president ot the spring class, and Darrow Hooper, vice-president, check their credits tor graduation.

Their ettorts are entirely tor the enjoyment and experience obtained, with an aim for an A-team berth the following year. Any boys with two years ot playing eligibility remaining may play on the B-team. The squads of recent years have been called "All-Americans" and the name has stuclc. A starting eleven was not definite, but the boys who participated the most this year were Mont- gomery, Martin, and E. Ponder at ends, Dean, Jor- dan, Laughlin, and Matthews in the tackle s'ots, Cooner, Demetrulc, and Haddix filling the guard positions, and Dumas holding down center. The backs were Malone, McDaniel, Miller, Myres, J. Ponder, and Virgil. Carlos Myres captained the "All- Americans." The schedule was a double-round robin and, there- tore, gave the Steers two chances at each team. The six wins of the season were two each trom Carter, Tech, and Paschal. A tie was talcen in a hard fought tussle with Poly after dropping the tirst-halt game. Heights managed to hand the Steers two straight cle- teats, and the season record stood six wins, three losses, and one tie. ' Q K Q13 , Q4 Q R 'S W3 R ' A wg .'.-f:. C .Qi . , N Kanada!!

Paschal's victories over the Steers were clear and decisive ones, 3I-39, 40-6I, but Poly marred North Side's runnerup chances, that would have entitled them to aid Paschal in City representation, with slight victories ot two and three points, 37-39, and 34-37. The loss to Carter was aided by Hooper's absence 'From the game due to an eye injury, plus the jinx that always seems to plague the Steers during the season opener. Score to this one was 22-40.

Highest score ot the season, 6028, came in a tilt with Bonham even though num- erous substitutions were made. The Steers returned home, met Diamond Hill in the North Side Gym, and walked out with a 55-39 win. This closed pre-season duels and preceded the Carter-North Side district opener. The Steers were well supplied with reserve strength in Leo Burns, John Blessing, Don Car- roll, Carroll Munden, Carlos Myres, and Charles Davis. Combine these with the starting tive, and you have the lettermen as announced at the close ot the season.
