Fighting a constant battle against superior depth and experience from Tulsa schools, the S.H.S. cross-country squad this year compiled a respectable 12-15 record in five invitational meets and one dual with Putnam City. Bob Wright, whose only previous track experience consisted of high jumping and pole vaulting, made his first season of distance running a tremendous success by racking up the fastest two-mile time since state record holder Bob Buchanan performed for the Pioneers. Improving constantly throughout the season, Bob's best showing came in the Aggie Invitational meet when he finished second in a field of 50 runners. The following week he was pushed back to seventh in the state finals, but ran a blazing 10:25, only eight seconds behind first place. Backing Wright up on the team were senior lettermen Richard Dermer and Marvin Smith, and iunior lettermen Dick Powell, How- ard Puckett, Ioe McKenzie, and Mike Glover. In the thinclad's first competition and only dual meet of the season, Wright and Dermer finished one stride apart to defeat Put- nam City's top man by thirty yards. The speedy Pioneers downed the Pirates 26-29. In their next five meets, all invitationals, the locals copped a total of II individual wins against IS losses. Their best showings came at Shawnee, where they placed third in a field of six teams, and at Nor- man and Tulsa, where they finished fourth of seven teams. Bob Wright and Richard Dermer are working out on Hillcrest during cold weather. IIS Beginning his third year as coach of the Pioneer track team is Iim Harris, a graduate of Oklahoma A. 8: M.

Beginning his third season with the Stillwater Pioneers is basketball coach Martin Lop- er. Stillwater high school is Martin Loper The Pioneers opened the 1956 season with a very impressive 69-26 victory over. the Perry Ma- roons in the first round of the pre-season North- ern Eight Conference tournament at Ponca City. Cushing also fell victim to the powerful Still- water five 60-49 in the second round but a de- termined Ponca City Wildcat team edged the Pioneers 39-37 in an overtime battle for the tour- ney crown. In their first regular season game the Pioneers fought off a late bid by the Shawnee Wolves to cop a 47-41 victory. The win moved Stillwater into the No. 3 position in the state prep cage rat- ings. Drumright, a team that Stillwater had never IIO proud of the outstanding rec- ords made by the Pioneer squad under Lopefs direction. During his first year here as coach I9 games were won with the loss of only 5. Last year I7 games were won with the loss of 7. beaten since Coach Martin Loper took over as head mentor of the Pioneers three years ago, found this year's edition too much to handle as the lo- cals brought home a 41-36 victory. After along lay-off, the Pio n e e r s bounced Cushing from the state ranking with a 71-56 con- quest over the Tigers who were figured to be one of the top teams in the Northern Eight conference. This was the first league clash for Stillwater, the top seeded quintet in the loop. Following the Cushing clash Stillwater went on to down the Shawnee Wolves for the second straight time 54-49 on the Pioneer's home court. The Pioneers were rated in the No. 1 slot in state ratings. Enid was the next team to be downed by the Pioneers in the District finals held at Stillwater 8-3. From here the Pioneers went to the 'semi- finals against Capital Hill, a Class AA school. The Redskins proved to be too much for Still- water and defeated them I3-2. Capital Hill went on to win over Norman to win first place in the state. A Norval Rassmussen, the Pioneers centerfielder, was chosen to the All-State team. The Pioneers have 16 returning lettermen from last year's club. These boys are Rex Stockard, 2nd base, Bruce Andrew, ss, Bob O,Donnel, 3rd base, Donnie Rex Stockard Greene, outfield, Kent Davis, pg Montie Greene, pg Bryan Collyar, outfield, Gene Colasacco, Ist base, Russell Williamson, outfield, Cecil Epper- ley, 3rd base, Glenn Denny, cg Tom Holland, ss, Carmon O'Donnell, outfield, Bob Erickson, ss, Ioe Horn, 2nd base, and Lee Roy Daniel, p.

I3 During the first three years Coach Martin Loper has been at S.H.S. his baseball teams have been Northern Eight conference champions two years and second the other. The past two sea- sons the Pioneers have gone to the semi-finals of the state tournament before being defeated. Last year Stillwater won the Regional and Dis- trict tournaments before going to state. On their way to the semi-finals the Pioneers defeated Okmulgee 14-3 in the first round of the region- als. In the finals they won over the Cushing Tigers by a score of II-4.

Wilbur Iohnston 122 Quinton McBride 122 After the Bristow meet Rains' matmen suffered an injury that was to prove fatal to any hopes of having a successful dual season when lack Nasworthy, Iunior. letterman at 129 pounds, fractured a wrist and was side- lined for the season. The Pioneers second tourney, the Geary Tourna- ment, was not as successful as the first as the Pioneers placed fourth out of a field of 16 teams entered. Chesbro and Pike garnered their second, first place trophies of the season and Pike was named the outstanding wrestler of the tourney. However, the Pioneers did not come out of the meet too Well as Sophomore lack Chesbro, 114 pounder, received a brok- en collar bone in the first round and doing so became the second regular lost for the season. As the Pioneers entered the state meet in March, McCracken, Chesbro, and Pike were favorites to cap- ture top honors in their respective weights.

Rains started his revamping program around senior lettermen Bobby Mc Cracken, 1053 Tommy Chesbro, IZQQ and Iim Pike, defending state champion at 136 pounds, to fill in the lower weights but had to rely on first and second year men at the heavier brackets. The young inexperienced Pioneers were no match for the many superior squads they wrestled in duals but proved to be a powerhouse in tournaments as they finished high in the states top two mat tourneys. At the Bristow In vitational, McCracken, Chesbro and Pike all copped first place honors to place the Pioneers to a very respectable third place.

Under the direction of Coach Rains there have been five state champions. His Still- water teams have always been in the top five at tournaments, with a state champion team in the year I953-54. f i Grover Rains Co-captains for this yearls Pioneer wrestl- ing team are Iim Pike and Tommy Chesbro. Pike placed first in state last year and is slated to do so this year. Other firsts for Pike are Bristow and Geary tournaments. He was chosen outstanding wrestler in the Geary tournament.

After a girl has com- pleted I0 games she receives IO points. Sportsmanship, comradeship and good health are the high ideals the members of the Girl's Athletic Association strive to attain. Mrs. Charles Esslinger, sponsor, is the inspiration for the girls to build strong bodies, learn to be good losers, and most important, to be modest winners. Each year, girls enrolled in physical education take part in various sports, such as basketball, volleyball and table tennis, in order to earn a re- quired number of points which are needed to be- come a member of G.A.A. Those eligible for membership are treated to an impressive initia- tion ceremony by officers and members. Ideals and goals of the club are depicted with candles, which, when lighted together form one, pure, white light-the symbol of G.A.A. Every other meeting is donated to the play- ing of games in order to earn extra points. Letters, state pin and a diamond set for the pin may be won by earning these points. An 'Awards dinner is held for these girls. Row 1: Venn, VanMeter, Flood, Langford, VanMeter, Henderson.

Organized in the fall of last year by a small group of students and two teachers, the purpose of the club is to promote science, scientific thinking, and scholarship in its members. The sponsors are Wesley Driggs and Russell Martin. Research, field trips, and speakers for meetings, which are held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, are the three main activities of the organization. Some of the men who have given their time to speak to the club this year are Dr. B. M. Alexander, Dr. Powell E. Fry, Dr. Ern- est M. Hodnett, and Dr. Henry P. Iohnston. A variety of field trips were taken, a few of which were to such places as the college Radiations and Radioisotope Lab, Labko Electrical Contracting Shop, and the Leonard de Vinci exhibit at A8zM. For the past few years, some of the club members have also entered the state science fair in Norman and have won several places for their outstanding projects.

Miss Ingram has been sponsor of the club for six years and Miss McWethy has been with the club for ten years. The club was organized in 1947. '7 0 Most of our adults cannot be convinced that we do any more serious thinking than where we are going to get finances for our next big social event. Maybe the solution is to introduce them to some of our organizations, and while introducing be sure to bring them around to IUO, Stillwater High's International Understanding Organization. Ask the adults what the most pressing problem of the future will be. World peace would be a sound answer. The youth of today will have to face this problem tomorrow. Tomorrow, or any day, the best way to have peace is to have world-wide friends, and the best way to have friends is to understand different people. Once one understands why a person does something, forgiving them and co-operating with them comes much easier-This is the purpose for having International understanding organizations in high schools and International Relations Clubs in colleges and universities. IUO is a high school branch of UNESCO. Here is the way it works in SHS: Foreign students come from the college as guests of the club during their regular monthly program meeting. They discuss their country with the members, telling them about the history, language, government and cus- toms. IUO helps develop leadership in state, national and international affairs. IUO creates knowledge and interests in other peoples, ideas and ideals. And most important to the world of tomorrow, IUO clubs are fostering friendly relations among all peoples of the world. approval.

Besides the opposite sex, what does the average teen-ager think of most? Food! The Future Farmers of America are the people who will be growing and raising the food that goes on our country's tables tomorrow. Therefore, the students of SHS, in a larger sense, the teen- agers of the world, should be interested in these boys upon whom will rest the health and future of our nation. There are four grades, or degrees of active membership, "Green Hand," "Chapter Farmer," "State Farmer," and "American Farmer." Specific levels of attainment with respect to farming, earnings, investments, leadership, and scholarship are set up for each degree. The future farmer that attains the degree of American Farmer is chosen with a very few other boys from states all over America and installed at the National Convention. Future Farmers of America is a national organization that does nation- wide work of tremendous strength. Locally, none of the strength of the na- tional organization is lost. FFA work is co-ordinated with the boys' vocation- al agriculture courses. Their activities range from beef and crop improvement to poultry judging, a parent-son banquet to a skating party with the FHA. Truly, the FFA is developing a trained leadership and farm citizenry which serves and exerts an influence for good wherever found. The new group of young Greenhands stand before the F.F.A. officers during the formal initiation. This Greenhand degree is the first step in active membership in Future Farmers of America.

These are the guys and gals who are are alert in the morning even after burning midnight oil, who are involved in many other activities that revolve around the students of S.H.S., and who still find time to be employees in the afternoons and evenings. Everyone knows that to become a good student these Distributive Educa- tion students must study. So also, to become a good employee takes study. These student employees, through their Distributive Education class work and their D. E. club activities, are striving to become not only better student citi- zensg but also to become more intelligent help to their employers. D. E. members on several occasions have opportunities to display this work to their parents and employers, besides, of course, when they are actually on the job. For instance, at the official beginning of the D. E. year the mem- bers held an open house. Here they exhibited the "D. E. Room of Tomorrow" presented to the club by the Sears-Roebuck and Company. Students displayed merchandise from the stores in which they are employed. Every year, parents and employers are invited to the biggest display of them all-Distributive Education's Parent-Employee-Employer banquet. Mom, Dad, and the boss see first-hand the results of student efforts. No doubt about it! Someday we will all have to go to work, and it is only logical that those who are studying early to become better employees will sooner become better employers. l l Fixing a display are Larry Shaffer, Rayora Moore, and Charles Dietz.

Here are the girls who claim that housekeeping is not a tiresome drudgery-but a career to seek after and admire. A future homemaker is preparing through her home econom- ics classes and organization work to be a good wife, mother, and the hub of the busy swirl that is known as the home. Mom has a pretty busy day, in spite of her many modern conveni- ences. Take time out to think of what today's typical mother does to keep her family going and happy. By practical use at home of the theor- ies they learn in F .H.A., the members not only help improve poor mom's day but lay the foundation of the homes of tomorrow. The center of any generation's future is the home. Therefore, the girls interested in improving the home can be literally called 'fthe center of the center." And being the center of anything, especially something as important as the home, takes a lot of skill-building and practice. But not all F.H.A. work is glorious planning and sentimental dream- ing for the future. Their social conjuction with the Future Farmers of America brings a series of square dances, box socials, etc. Future Farm- ers pay the way and everyone is happy about doing something they enjoy, while improving the future.

Working hand in hand with the Red Cross and the Public Welfare agency, the club is constantly in contact with Still- water families-in welfare work, in church during one of their bi-monthly group attendances, or caroling on Christmas Eve. During the Thankgiving season the school body was included in a pro- ject of Y-Teen. Every student attending the Thanksgiving assembly was asked to bring food or a money donation to help fill the baskets that went out to needy families. The response was so great that the project was re- peated at Christmas time. Yearly, in the spring, a lively bunch of Y-Teens invade the Crippled Children's hospital in Oklahoma City. Delighted youngsters are bombarded with cookies, ice cream, favors, and the old favorite-the clown. Y-Teen by no means leaves out the older generation. Vesper services are held in the nursing homes once a month, bringing religion the exuberance and vitality of youth. And through it all the Y-Teens have fun-for there is joy in doing things for others-and doing it' with friends. No organization could have a better purpose than building a fellowship of girls devoted to the task of realizing those ideals of personal and social living to which we are committed by our faith as Christians. Sharing the true spirit of Christmas and hav- ing a good time doing it, the Y-Teens made contributions to the Christmas joy of many people by delivering food baskets to under- privileged families.

The Future Teachers of America in American high schools are a project of the National Education Association to put more and better young moderns in the classrooms of the future. NEA hopes to encourage youth into the teach- ing profession by showing them, through FTA clubs, the advantages, disad- vantages and rewards of a life's work of education. Stillwater Kezer Club is one of the most outstanding of these clubs in Oklahoma. For the past 2 years it has walked off with the Banner Club of j Oklahoma and has had two of its members in state offices. T But more important than its state rating are the ratings given the club l by local education groups and the high school itself. Stillwater Education Association cooperates with and supports FTA in every way possible and the "tomorrow', teachers have been the guest of the "today" teachers on many oc- casions, sometimes observing, sometimes giving the program. The grade schools call on FTA for substitute teaching, baby-sitting, and other educational aids. Around their school FTA,ers have worked on many projects for pro- motion, support, and aid to both students and staff. Made up not only of decided teachers of the future, but students consider- ing the field of the teaching, the Future Teachers of America are exploring teaching for better schools tomorrow.

If you want to know the purpose of Pep Club, ask an athlete what the game would be like without the cheering sec- tion urging him to knock the living day light out of the opponent's score. In the cheering section at the game, in the rowdy pep assemblies, or in the car train, the Pep Club is the spirit behind the team and the pep behind the school. Te become a member of Pep Club, a girl must purchase a uniform and pay the annual dues of 50 cents. However, although they are not required, a good pair of lungs, endurance equal only to a buffalo, pep equal to nothing on earth, and a over-bearing love of S.H.S., are ideal. One of the most exciting events around school in the spring is the selec- tion of the cheerleaders. Two sophomore girls are chosen to serve as cheer- leaders during their Iunior and Senior years. By this process, the new cheer- leaders join the two Senior cheerleaders to make a crew of four. It is the job of these girls not only to lead the cheers, but to rouse the spirit! The officers are elected by the club after the names of outstanding club members have been submitted by the nominating committee composed of cur- rent officers and cheerleaders. In order for a girl to be eligible for an office, she must attend all sports events, wear her uniform, and attend all business meetings. An organization for any high school girl, no matter what her other ex- tra-curricular activities, the Pep Club is as much a part of Stillwater High as the atheltic team iteslf.

State Honor recognizes the top ISV, of each class as based on two consecutive semesteris grades. If a student is rewarded in his under classmen years for honest good grades, it naturally follows that he will want to continue staying in the upper part of his class. State Honor members have varied activities including the holding of pot luck suppers and conducting the opening exercises on assembly. No matter what other activities, extra curricular or otherwise, that are offered to the students, the most important reason for coming to school is scholarship. To recognize and promote scholars then is a worth- while reason for having a State Honor Society. Secretary Kathryn Brooks checks with Principal Carl Tilley on grades of prospective members to see if they meet the requirements of State Hon- or Society. National Honor installation of officers and initiation of new members is one of the serious highlights of the spring. Shown are the retiring officers who serve as an installing team, and the new members.

These are students recognized for being in the top fourth of their class as based on scholarship, service, leadership, and character. But underneath it all the National Honor Society serves an even more worthwhile purpose in SHS in that its object is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Yearly the Stillwater Red Rose Chapter holds an initiation for an assembly of undcrclassmen. There they see first hand the benefits of hard work for outstanding serv- ice to their school. Some day they, too, may be among the chosen few. To recognize the upper 157, and to encourage others to make the upper 152, this is the purpose of having a National Honor Society. Some members show their mock Christ- mas gifts to their beloved sponsor, Homer Weeks, at the annual Christmas party. Mr. Weeks is practically a tradition in SHS. The best part of his life has been spent in promoting the minds and charac- ters of students. As head of the Math de- partment he has by both word and deed, truly been the backbone of the National Honor organization. "Pass the mustard"-three members caught in the act of enjoying the first get- together this September. These students were chosen by the Student Council the most outstanding members of the Senior Class, ac- cording to Andy Murphy, sponsor of Student Council. They are selected because of their scholastic standing, participation in school, religious, and community ac- tivities, and co-operation with students and teachers.

BOY AND GIRL AFFAIRS-MEMORIES Pioneer rooters decorate their O1lBurners' for the car train be- fore the Cushing clash. Have you ever thought about the role you play in life? William Shakespeare said U. . . all the world's a stage . . ." This covers a wide area. SHS is a part of that great stage. The fun-filled fand the not-so-fun-filled, days of high school life give a person a chance to act his part. All SHS'ers play a part which never ends. The curtain never falls. The student is an ac- tor among actors, attempting to follow his cues and gain a place for himself in the drama of life. One of the minor tragedies of life may overwhelm a student momentarily-say a test or something equally frightening-only to be followed by a comedy unequalled in this long play of life the next minute. Adventure stories grip the gifted actor daily around old SHS. From the excitement of the Big Game to the tantalizing suspense- ful tingle of test day all are adventure stories -the kind of acting that makes life worth the trouble. Plodding along behind these people are the bit players who get no fun out of life and play their part with the line of least resistance the foremost thought in their minds. Here is SHS,s yearbook for 1957, filled with publicity pictures for all you actors. It has recorded the never to be seen again moments of the eternal play.

During his 41 years of teaching youth, Mr. Weeks has endeared himself to hundreds of former students, who have obtained high goals in science, engineering, and mathematics. He has been teaching in Stillwater high school for fifteen years. Ten of these years he has spent sponsor- ing the National Honor Society. In his classroom and through the National Honor Society, he has been an inspiration to students in schol- arship, character, service and leadership. Thank you, Mr. Weeks.

This year, though, the Seniors behaved dif- ferently. They did not think they were the best, they knew they were tops, and did not waste any time letting the rest of the school know it. A faculty member was once heard to say, "We ad- mit the existence of Sophomores, and treat Iuniors like normal human beings, but letis face it, the Seniors run this schoolf' Which is not far from wrong. This year's graduating class started blazing a trail through S.H.S. the first day they appeared their Fresh- man year. While Frosh are always somewhat bewildered and confused, the upperclassmen of that year were amazed at the speed with which the class of 1957 was catching on to such vital skills as getting to class five seconds before the last bell, getting out of class three seconds after the first bell, and thinking up new excuses for the people in the office. That year was marked by a continuous procession of elections, field trips, dances, and once in a while, home- work. Far from being dazed with their success, however, the class flew right in at the start of their Sophomore year and began making names for themselves in organi- zations, scholarship, and athletics. The final lap in the race toward supremacy start- ed when the Iuniors of 1956 set out to prove that for the first, and last time, in history, the Iuniors were the number one class. Taking upon themslves vital positions on every athletic team, occupying organizational offices previously held only by Seniors, and completely con- trolling social life of the school, the Iuniors lowered the boom on their elders. Their unique Scag Dance was only one of their successes, while Student Council elections were the liveliest and most colorful in years. This year the Seniors were the undisputed top dogs, and ruled the school with a firm and steady might. Be- tween their championship athletic teams, social activities, successful charity drives, and inspired guidance of our schools clubs, they made an impression on S.H.S. which will not be forgotten for many years.

The Sophomore class might be termed the "lost class." They have been around the school too long to be new faces, still they have not been around long enough to begin running things. This fact has not in the slightest dampened their spirits. They have gone ahead, and made their Sophomore year a memorable one. They set a precedent in SHS by campaigning for class offices and electing by secret ballot. After electing these officers, they put them to work planning a way to raise money for their lunior and Senior year. This spark of ambition and foresight so early in the game is practically a precedent in itself. Thanks to the hard working com- mittees, and just plain, hard-working Sophomores, their carnival was marked on the slate as one of the major social events of the year. Needless to say, it proved very profitable for the enterprising Sophomores. One can always recognize a Sophomore after the first of the year. This is the time when the boys lettering in a sport get their letter jackets for the first time in high school. A Sophomore is now easily distinguished be- cause he seems to have a passion for these jackets, he attends classes, eats, sleeps, and so the story goes, even bathes in his. The female of the species can easily be determined by a quality that can only be termed "pertness." Like some blithe spirit a Sophomore girl is, in most cases, a con- stant "smiler and well-wisherf' As opposed to the fright- ened look of the freshmen, the determined look of the Iunior, and the responsibility laden look of the Senior, the Sophomore, with no big problems yet, literally floats through the halls on Cloud 9. If one can distinguish a good graduating class by their performance as Sophomores, then theodds in fav- or of the ,59 class are to high to gamble.

This motto could be adopted by the freshman class. Lost and bewildered when they entered Stillwater high, the Frosh soon caught on to the trends imposed by those before them. Being promoted into high school gave them new responsibilities as the teachers now treated them as young ladies and gentlemen. A choice of various organizations gave them an opportunity to show their enthusiasm. The boys, who lettered in sports, always look forward to late spring when the S club gives them a chance to prove their Worth as scurves'. The interest of the girls is directed toward F. H. A. and Y-Teen, though there are several organizations for both boys and girls, such as F, T. A., Thespians, I. U. O. and Science Club. "Young folks are smart, but all ain't good thetls neW.', This fact was soon discovered when homework assignments were made by their teachers. One hundred and eighty dollars contributed to the Polio Drive by the Freshman Class made the other classes aware that the arrogance of age must submit to be taught by youth. The entire school body was forced to recognize by this campaign not only the existence of Freshmen, but that their enthusiasm and stick-to-it-ness had completely over- whelmed upper classes. A good start for a good class.

Although many faults still exist for future classes to iron out, the All-School News, which is printed by and included in the Stillwater News-Press each week, is a vast improvement over the mimeographed Wagon Wheel. Probably each journalism student has one special thing which will be remembered about the paper, but the memory which all are sure to have in common is the frantic, nerve-racking scramble each Wednesday to make the 3 o'cl0ck deadline. One page of the paper, which was eagerly awaited each week, was devoted solely to the work of our pioneering columnists, Iudy Sacra, Sue Walters, and Doris Duckwall Gary Clark Carlene Barnes Mary Hamlet Iohn Garner Iudi Dudley others. Each week one senior was chosen to be hon- ored as Pioneer Personality. Doris Duckwall, Wanda Peery, and Darla Han- sen covered the grade school news. The great burden, but the mainstay of the paper, the club news, fell upon the other members of the class who received fewer bylines but often spent hours covering their beats. Those in this group were Iudi Dudley, Mary Hamlett, Carolyn Morgan, Sarah Par- rott, Iune Killingsworth, and Carlene Barnes. lndelibly drawn in the memory of Richard Der- mer, editor, and Gary Clark, associate editor, are the long Thursday evenings spent in make-up of the Fri- day edition. However, with the help of Iohn Garner, Bill Overholt, Phil Stout, and Tom Holland in writ- ing copy to keep from being underset, the Thursdays slipped away and the traditional "gon came too soon on the end of the ,56-,57 school year. Tommy Holland Iune Killingsworth tifv Darla Hansen Sarah Parrott ' Vvanda Peery ' Carolyn Morgan 0 2 it u. ' W af Ni' -.., . Phil Stout Iudy Sacra ' Patty Walton Sue Walters Hi! Not long ago a student sauntered slowly into room 30 and said, "Hey, what is the matter with you guys, donit you ever work?,' lt so happened that at the time we were considering a particularly rough situation and were probably working harder than at any time during the year, even though our relaxed position might not have exactly emoted creative en- ergy to the curious eyes of passing scholars. We quickly set the poor misguided soul straight, and he continued on his way with a new insight into yearbook production, though undoubtedly worse the wear for the experience. Do not misunderstand me, we move sometimes. This, granted, is on rare occasions g but when we do have to move, we have to move fast. Some things only happen once a year, and these events require fast action and a handy camera. To be a journalist one has to be snoopy. We, therefore, pretend to be journalists. We try to find out everything that is going to happen before it happens. If we did not catch this action, it did not appear in the preceding pages. This yearbook, to put it mildly, represents a major change in design from its predecessors. Its ideas are not necessarily new, but the way they are handl- ed is. Our goals have been different from the staffs of yearbooks before us. They presented a book that told what we have in S.H.S. and the people who were connected with these things. Our idea has been that the students know what we have in our school but need to have a memory book of the things that happened this particular year, day by day. Yearbook production is hard work, but it is fascinating-fascinating be- cause we could create, snoop, and try to second-guess your wishes. Above all, creative thinking has been our objective. That is why the boy I mentioned before thought we weren't working--you cannot see the wheels turning. We have achieved a yearbook-a book of memories-that we are proud of, we want you to be proud, too. HARDY DOYLE, Editor ,i-fy!! . 1" I ,U C 1- X , 'QX XX Xis -J -Z'-J , - . R, - -., A .
