' A CAPPELLA CHOIR
One of the outstanding musical
organizations in Stillwater high
school was the A Cappella choir
which replaced the mixed chorus of
last year. The choir was made up of
fifty selected voices from the girls'
and boys' glee clubs.
The mixed chorus has done re-
markably well in contests in the past
receiving, last year, a superior rat-
ing at the district meet in Tonkawa
and excellent at the state meet in
Stillwater. An equally outstanding
record is expected from the choir,
In january the choir attended the
second annual Noble Cain choral
festival held in Stillwater.
This year's contest numbers were
"Tenebrae Factae Sunt," by Pales-
trina, "Dark Water," by james, and
"Say Thou Lovest Me," by Cain.
GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
The girls' glee club is one of the
leading musical organizations of the
highschool. Composed of forty-five
members, the club has sung for va-
rious local organizations.
The girls entered the district and
state contests at Tonkawa and Nor-
man this year and made various
trips to other schools to present pro-
This year's contest numbers were
"The Return" by Schumann and
"On the Steppe" by Gretchaninoif.

One of the most important extra
curricular activities in Stillwater
highschool is atheletics. Not only be-
cause of the revenue it brings in,
but because of the training it gives
the one hundred-eleven who partici-
pate in the eight sports offered. Ath-
letic directors are Ralph Hamilton,
football and basketball, Ross Flood,
wrestling and track, Hugh Coon-
field, baseball, junior high football
and basketball, E. D. Price, golf, and
R. D. McDole, tennis.
Twenty-one boys take part in two
sports, and one hardy lad finds a
place for three.
Late in August of 1940 Coach
Hamilton issued a call for gridmen
from the 1939 squad. These led by
co-captains Paul McGuire and john
Alderson gave a nucleus around
which Hamilton built his new edi-
tion of the Bronze Bombers.
For their nrst contest, the Pioneers
traveled to Oilton and opened the
chase that led to the championship
of the Cimarron Valley conference,
by crushing the Panthers 39 to 0.
Bud Andrews, Gordon Flesner, Paul
McGuire, and Bob Riley scored.
The Bronze opened their home
season by defeating the Yale Bull-
dogs 24-7. McGuire, Hubbard, and
In their third encounter the Bomb-
ers defeated the Britton Bears 9-0.
Bud Andrews scored the game's lone
touchdown. Rex Demaree made the
other two points by blocking a
Bruin punt behind the goal line.
For their fourth victory the Pio-
neers rolled over the Pawnee Bears
27 to 7.
Journeying to Fairfax after a
week's layoff, the Bronze ran into
tough opposition from the Red Dev-
ils and came away with a scoreless
Still trying for their fifth win, the
Pioneers unleashed the most power-
ful attack of the season on the in-
vading Drumright team, and calmed
the Tornadoes 33-6. It was Bud An-
drews who led the way, scoring
three touchdowns and playing his
best game of the year.
By way of putting a cinch hold
on the Cimarron Valley crown, the
Bombers met the defending champ-
ion, Cushing Tigers, and came out
victorious 18-O. .Scores were made
by Gordon Flesner, Bob Riley, and
Cushing win was number seven
for the Bronze. But they met a sharp
reversal when they invaded the
stronghold of the Guthrie Blue-jays.
Pass interceptions proved the Bomb-
er's "Waterloo" and they were de-
feated 31-7. Gordon Flesner made
the lone Pioneer tally.
In their season's final the Pioneers
tangled with the powerful Black-
well Maroons and fell before the
Big Reds 33 to O. Even in defeat,
however, they played good ball.

After a one-year layoff from ju-
nior high football, the Toy Pioneers,
coached by Hugh Coonneld, jumped
back into grid competition with two
victories and three defeats.
The Toys' first win was an 18-0
shutout of Kingfisher, and their
other victory was a hard fought 6-O
battle over Pawnee. The Toy Pio-
neers lost two contests to Guthrie
6-O, and 18-Og and then were nosed
out by Pawnee in a return engage-
The leading scorer for the Toys
was Captain Max Johnson with 12
points. He was followed by Bob
Moore, Raymond Emery, and jack
Harrall, with one touchdown each.
Spring sports had a banner season
this year. The tennis team was a
strong aggregation built around re-
turning veterans from last year.

David McCraw in the boys' division,
and Deone Duncan, Mildred john-
son, Shirley DeWitt in the girls'

The 1941 basketball squad was
one of the best teams developed at
Stillwater High since the state
championship team of 1922.
The season started on a two game
series with the Guthrie Bluejays, and
the Bombers won both of these
games to take an early lead in the
Northern conference. In rapid suc-
cession they knocked over the Yale
Bulldogs, the Bristow Pirates, the
Drumright Tornadoes, and the
Pawnee Bears. These six wins gave
the Pioneers the commanding posi-
tion in both the Northern and Cim-
arron Valley conferences.
