In this year book the annual staff has tried to surn up the many activities in which our school has parti- cipated. The symbols of the various activities and organizations are a never-ending paradeg but we have tried to capture a few of these in words, drawings, and photographs so that in years to come you may look back at these and faintly remember the joys, the wonderful good times, the sorrows, and tribulations of which you were a part in this year. The symbol of Snyder High is the large gold "S" as is the black and gold tiger, but the true symbol of our school is the spirit of the students, the cooperation which they have demonstrated, the many activities in which they have participated, and the fine way they have upheld the standards of Snyder High. w 1 s M 0 ff 2 1 as ,Qing 14 .-A if up s www RF it 'z I r J 5 ,,.M,.. , 4 .., L 4 5 s P M 'Fa-iffszfseig,-ff'-W ' 3 iff v QQ ,I 5 1 1 gig I s 5 A ,4 .31 Q f .. lfi.L,,Q gift g4,i,f5:1f p,,Lsf4gj5jgf5Qj? ..

We, the staff, dedicate this annual to J.M. Kayser, who in the past years has always been ready to counsel and aid those who have looked to him for advice. Because he has found time amid his many duties to take an individual interest in students of Snyder High School and because he has done so much for the betterment of this s chool, we wish to e xp r e s s through this dedication our sincere thanks . Mr. Kayser, your resignation is a loss felt by every teacher, administrator, and student who know you. Wherever you go, we feel that you will be as successful with others as you were with the students of Snyder High.

With a strong faith in the value of education, the Board has spent many, many hours in planning for the construction of needed facilities and the development of an educational pr ogram which is responsive to the needs of the children. Members of this Board are unself- ishly dedicated to al-1 those things which make for an outstanding school system and community.

"However, it is the students who make this school great", said the visitor, "and I am convinced that this is one of America's outstanding high schools."

It is fitting and proper that the sum total of our school should have lasting effect upon our students, our patrons and our visitors as an outstanding place of opportunityfor democratic living and learning and for the full acceptance of responsibility. Each of us has a challenge to see that our contributions to these purposes of our school are of the best. Your friend, C . L.

T.D. WIMAN, JR. In following the theme of the Tigers' Lair for this year I would like to leave a few thoughts In the spring of 1953 as I watched the completion of our high school building, and in the summer as I walked through its halls as the furniture was moved in, there was a feeling that here was a beautiful edificeg the best of equipment, but there was something lacking. Then I realized that the building was only a symbol of something. To give it life and meaning there must be boys and girls with ambitions, wanting to learng and teachers with an understanding of teenage desires, well prepared academically, well adjusted, and with a love for teaching. It has been with a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction that we have watched the symbol become alive with a vibrant enthusiasm of life within it as students work, study, play and develop under the leadership of a capable faculty. Mrs. Phil Cherry is sec- retary to the Student Personnel Department and Library. She handles her varied jobs with ef- ficient skill. 18 administrative assisiances The very capable assistant principal of Snyder High School is J.M. Kayser, who has served in that c apac ity for the past three years. His authority and impartial manner are known and respected by all. His friendliness and willingness to help and advise have made him a favo rite of many. The lady in the offi c e with the friendly smile and twinkling eyes is Mrs. J.E. Waller, Registrar. Her charming personality has made her one of the best-loved members of the staff.

Our school had two visiting speakers this mon- th, Billie Davis and Andy Holt. Most all of the old clubs began buzzing with elections and other business after the summer lapse. Pre school registering, as always, was a headache to Mr. Wiman and the rest of the school officials. In the long run, however, it proved very helpful in the beginning days of the new school year. 183 october Margie Smith, Billie Ramsey, and Suzanne Houston show George Mahon through our new High School. October was another four we e ks of hum- ming activity on the campus. With the arrival of the rings, the Seniors realized that time was marching on.

A group of students were chosen to take turns keeping e le m e ntar y classes for one whole day since the teachers were in a C onf e r e nc e. Many of the "substitute teachers" had amusing times with the small-frys. Some decided to become teachersg however, some decided dif- ferently. We were honored this year by holding the District T e e nag e Li- brary Convention in our school. Stu- dent librarians registered from all a- round.

Some of our choral students also sang in the "Messiah" presented on Sunday afternoon. Before getting out for the holidays the student council gave a "coke party" in the patio for all the SHS s tude nts. The Snyder Tiger Flag was given as a Christmas present from the council to the student body as a final touch of Christmas feeling before leaving school for the holidays.

The student above seems to be studying or maybe doing research work on "Little Lulu." The libraryis one section of our school which every student appreciates.

Most everyone can look back on this period of time and remember how much fun it was to take on the social responsibility of their opposite gender ...- Darla Gilbert is "toting" the books for Fritz Bob Rodgers and Hilton Horton decided they while Nell Crawford opens the door for Bobby wanted refreshments, so their "Twirpers", Betty Staton. The boys c1on't seem to mind at all. Hunt and Ann Brush came to their aid. Mrs. Richardson took her general science class through a water pro- jection plant. SHS students went to Sweetwater for the basketball game. Students signed up to go on buses to the Plainview basketball game. Many did turn out for the game despite the freezing weather. Our different science classes took several interesting field trips---through different plants around Snyder. These trips proved to be very educational to students interested in these parti- cular fields of work as well as to those who had never been through a plant. To conclude February, the basketball boys held their banquet in the Humble recreation hall. Their mothers worked especially hard to make the affair a success for the boys and their dates.

Drs. Hartley and Dillaha were the men who have kept the Tigers rolling. Many boys might not have been the same if it had not been for the splendid medical at- tention given by these two fine doctors. DR THOMAS HARTLEY DR- CARL DU-I-'AHA "Doc" Weaver is the ath- letes' chiropractor. Many a boy can thank him for making their sore muscles feel good. If a boy received an injury in a game, "Doc" was always the first one on the field. He is shown here with Jimmie Bennett. Blue L o wr y helped the athletic department very much. He drove the football bus and took movies of all the games. Managers Carl Burns and Jerry Hale gave as much time and effort in making the Tigers a great hall club as anyone . Their readiness and willingness made them a favorite of the football boys as well as the coaches. Without their assis- tance, the season of l954would not have been half as good for the Tigers.
