One of the highlights of the year is the elec- tion of the student council officers which is held in April.

This organization is perhaps the most screened and most difficult to make, yet most cherished by its member. Each member, besides having proved himself a good academic student, has also proved himself a good citizen. To become a member, a student must first have on record near a three point five grade average in high school before he is nominated. His complete record must then pass a personal vote test by each member of the high school faculty based on leadership, service, and character. Original nominations along with the personal faculty votes are then submitted to a faculty committee, who in turn determine the best qualified students for the new membership. Constitution of the National Honor society allows approximately ten members to be selected during the second semester of their junior year. This group is properly initiated in late spring so that they can make up the initiation team during their senior year. Also from this group are chosen all organization officers for the coming year. Member, ship is completed each tall from additional seniors in order to meet the quota lor a coin- plete organization. The real purpose of the Stillwater Red Rose chapter is to give due honor to those deserving students, who during their high school years do most for them- selves while doing most for their school in the classrooms, on the athletic fields, in their chosen organizations, and in their daily associations with their teachers and fellow students.

Lending the necessary vim, vigor, and vitality to all athletic'events and pep assemblies are the six Pioneer cheerleaders. These are the girls who, in order to become cheer- leaders, had to attend all games in complete uniform just to be eligible for tryouts. Then they had to be good enough to be selected finalists by the judges. From there they were elected by popular vote of the student body. The cheerleaders' iob does not exist only during the school year. Their summer began by sending Zara Camp- bell and Martha Hert to represent them at the cheer- leading clinic. Martha and Zara returned with many new yells. Then the cheerleaders' real task began. Every morning at approximately six a m. these girls arrived at Hamilton field for practice. XVhen school started their practice, planning, train- ing, and drill paid off. They impressed everyone and they brought with them to the games and assemblies new enthusiasm and school spirit, which in past years had been at a lull. They inspired not only the athletes but the student body as well. Almost all their yells were new and the old ones were modernized. A cheerleaders' job is no easy one. It's work. Still- water high'5 crew has done an excellent iob at all they've attempted. They placed third in the state at contest. They yell their heads off, turn cartwheels, exert themselves, freeze to death, put up with little kids throwing the new pom poms at each other and playing with the megaphoncs, and pay a tremendous cleaning bill each week not because they have to, but because they are proud to lead the students, boost school spirit, and be a part of the athletic glory of SHS.

Monthly meetings of the club concern themselves with, some phase of music such as jazz, broadway hits, or American composers with the programs being presented by the members themselves. The musicians have on occasion been the guests of the St. Cecelia local organization, to present a program for them. The past year two members received fifty-dollar schol- ships by St. Cecelia club to forward their music education. l.a Musica, as member of the Iunior Division of the Oklahoma Federation of Music Clubs, is a recognized group of earnest high school students eager to work with other musicians and other interested persons anxious to learn about different phases of music and music education.

Members of Guild are students who are interested in speech and dramatics. They present plays, skits, and this year for the first time, the club sponsored an all-school talent show. The aims of Guild are to promote interest in better speech and dramatics, to encourage students to participate in assembly programs, club entertainments and plays, to give each member confidence in his ability, and to enjoy doing all these things. Members of Guild share many social activities, which include picnics, parties and dances. A project of Guild is contributing money each year for improvements and additions to the school's stage equipment and scenery. Some members of the organization participate in a weekly radio program entitled, "This ls Your School," which is presented over a local radio station. This is one of the many phases of speech and dramatic work. Mrs. Gladys Burris, new speech teacher in S.I-I.S. this year, was selected to sponsor the club.

The "teacher with the longest feet" contest got the club's activities underway. A week-long campaign was held and with the entire school indulging in the fun and activity. The contest was a great, money-making success. A popular teacher and coach, Tom Turvey, was presented at a mixer, an appropriate prize for winning the contest. Speakers flocal and foreignj panel discussions, films, parties, a banquet, and a pot luck supper contributed to the success of the meetings throughout the year. As a group FTA attended the State Teacher's Meeting in Oklahoma City, and OSU FTA meeting, and the State Convention, which was held at Oklahoma State this year. As the membership of FTA was unusually large this year, the club was able to complete, successfully, many proiects, tracing old members, baby sitting for grade school PTA meetings, practice teaching, concessions at ballgames and mixers, celebrating Horace Mann's birthday and numerous other projects were included in the activities. The Edna Bryan Award was presented to a Senior member at the close of the school year for outstanding service and contributions throughout her years of membership in the club. Under the guidance and inspiration of the new sponsors, Forrest Coltharp and Mrs. VV. M. McMurtry, FTA had one of the most successful and prosperous years. 414' Ieannie Hill, 1956-57 State His- torian congratulates Pat Sewell, up- on being elected vice-president in the state high school division for FTA. 59 One of the club projects is for the students to practice teach.

Its names is a combination of the term Uhigh-school Y.M.C.A." The Hi-Y movement is international in scope, Christian in emphasis, interdenomina- tional in character, and democratic in practice. The Hi-Y purpose is: "To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school, home, and community high standards of Christian characterf, The Hi-Y platform is, clean speech, clear sportsmanship, clean scholarship and clean living. A Hi-Y club welcomes into its membership any student who accepts its purpose and is willing to work with others in carrying it out. It encourages members to band to- gether in a definite cause calling for high scholarship, physical health, moral vvorth, and unselfish service. It does not ask "What church do you attend? What is your nationality? NVhat is the color of your skin? Neither does it limit its membership to those who are in the or above scholastic grouping. As early as 1876, the Young Mens Christian Association sponsored a program for boys in the high school at Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 1885 under the direction of D. T. Shirk, a teacher in the Dickinson County high school in Chapman, Kansas, the first high school Young Men's Christian Association that has had a continuous history was formed. Stillwater Hi-Y, as well as other Hi-Y's, is basically a Christian organization. It ex- presses itsclf through Christian service. This requires that its activities be constantly checked against its fundamental purpose. 9 lt lcmks like thc Hi-Y ers are male- ing lots of money at their conccasion " ' tluring one of the mixers. - , ,M Row I: llrnce Nlillcr, Larry Ioncs, lcrry Rt-ul, Chris Dclaporte.

Each year the FHA calendar is filled with a series of activities and meetings, which give members a variety of interesting subjects pertaining to homemaking. Some activities which have highlighted this year are the ever important and fun-filled rallies. Stillwater was hostess on September 21 of the Northeast Sub-District Rally. This rally could be termed as one of the most successful ever held. There are forty-seven members who join together every other Thursday evening in the Home Economics Cottage to learn and to make their organization outstanding. Of these forty-seven, fourteen are new members, having been initiated in September. For the first time this year each member of FHA will receive a yearbook with all the FHA activities included in it. The standing committees have been appointed for the com- ing year and, once again, pins and awards have been ordered for all those who are en- titled to them. Among FHA's many proiects arc the coffee stand at home football games, selling flower bulbs for a money making and home beautification proiect, and giving Thanks' giving baskets to less fortunate people. A few special prograins which-have been presented are a skit on the interpretation of the FHA rose, a program on Civil Defense and a talk on good grooming. Sponsors of FHA are Mrs. Elizabeth Brock and Miss Marian Browne. af 4,41-Y' A familiar scene on Friday nights at Hamilton Field is the Future X Homemakers' coffee stand, Here I Mrs. Brock and a few of the FHA members serve some of the foot- ball spectators coffee and doughnuts. i M.-1Ak,' i 1 I +o Qs, J " 1 5 cm a --- --' ' , it s V , 1' 1 Q .I ' fa N as sv Mol' K Row Row Row Row Row Row Row Io Alice Henderson, Martha Tarpey, Barbara Fowler, Iewel Blankinship, Shirley Felkins.

This organization was named by the State Legislature as Oklahoma's Semi-Centennial Concert Band. The band has competed in two major con- tests in which they received high honors. Among the many fund raising activities of the band was the annual Tag Day. Mem- bers of the band sold tags, and the money was used to purchase new uniforms, instru- ments, music and for instrument repair. In March the band held its first hamburger fry for members and alumni. Hoping to start a new tradition, the band had a banquet and dance for members only in May. The high stepping marching band, under the baton of Drum Major Randy Iones, has contributed much to the spirit of the school by marching at football games, in parades, and for various activities. The football shows, presented at half time, depicting historic events, and momentous occasions, have added much color to the games. Precision march- ing was used by the band for the first year with success. In 1957, the hand took its major trip to the Cherry Blossom Festival at Canyon City, Colorado. The trip lasted four days and consisted of two parades and a field marching contest. All bands were judged on both marching and playing. Stillwater high school band was named the "best playing band" of the festival and awarded a trophy. This honor has made the band the pride of SHS. 3 I 4 if A Y can . 172 in 54- ,jl . .4 ' " 1 -Q '-5,41 'if-:Efft - A band is not complete without at least three smart stepping twirlers.

Coach Hamilton has succeeded over his period of thirty- four years with the Stillwater public school system in help- ing to mould strong characteristics of a sense of fair play, good morals, and other manly virtues which contribute to good American citizenship. Students of Coach Hamilton have succeeded in all walks of life. His has been an enviable job in that he has been able to point not only to team achievement but also to the achievements of men in adult life, and thus say, "I knew that boy wellg he played a good game, showing good team spiritf' Team spirit is Hamilton's goal in life. This spirit has become a contagion over a period of years, spreading itself to many homes throughout the nation.

SHS enjoyed one of its best seasons on the gridiron in years as they made their first season under coach Tom Turvey a successful one. The Pioneers who were picked by pre-season forecasters to finish no higher than fifth in the Northern Eight conference standings, after an opening loss to Sapulpa, swept undefeated through their remaining nine game regular schedule and entered the state playoffs. H Coach Turvey took charge of Stillwater's football fortunes less than a week before the practice season start- ed. Knowing hardly little at all about the team, Turvey started a revamping program and began to install his popular split-T with a man in motion offense. Seven IOO returning lettermen from last year's conference runners- up greeted the new Pioneer mentor at his first practice session. The big problem facing Turvey was replacing the holes left in the Pioneer backfield by graduation. Six of last yearis top eight backs were lost via graduation and all three quarterbacks were among that number. THOMPSON, HORN, BUNCH, WILLIAMSON STAND OUT Turvey called on Ioe Horn, a lad who had six 'B' games to give him all of his playing time, to mastermind his tricky offense. The big threat in the Pioneer backfield at the start of the season who was probably one of the Continued to Page lol M-Ou Chris Bolton Benny Bunch most respected backs in the state and undoubtedly the fastest, was two year letterman halfback, Ierry Thomp- son. Benny Bunch, a regular guard in '36, made a big switch and became the starting fullback. Russell William- son, a senior playing his first year of football sinceihis freshman days, came on fast at the start of the campaign and nailed down a defensive end post. Bunch, William- son and Horn are only a few of the many Pioneers who came into their own and carried Stillwater to their firs.t clear-cut loop crown since 1952. PIONEERS TABBED "CINDERELLA" This is the story of Stillwaterls second straight winn- ning season on the gridiron and about the players and coaches who proved at the end of the season that they were no cinderella team, as one area sportswriter tabbed them. Head Coach Tom Turvey and As- sistant Coach lim Harris pause Iohn Cook Lee Roy Daniel A Friday the 13th jinx, a power laden Sapupla crew and a shaky start, proved to be too much for the Pioneers, as they dropped' their season opener to the Chieftains, 26-I3. The host Chiefs moved at will in the first and fourth quarters but the valiant Pioneers completely dom- inated the second and third periods. Sapupla scored two quick touchdowns in the opening round but the Pioneers came back strong and Horn pushed the pigskin over from the nine on the keeper. The Pioneer field general set up the locals next TD with a I2 yard scamper to the seven, where two plays later Thompson burst into the end Zone and Donnie Greene ran the extra point to end the Pioneers scoring. TAB IS SWIFTLY DISPROVED After a home-opening 13-6 victory over Cascia Hall, the Pioneers played host to an old rival, Ponca City, in their first conference clash, Behind Horn's deadly Continued to Page 102 Sophomore fullback Kenny Clark picks up a good yardage from work-outs for this informal in the Cascia Han tilt. pose of the Pioneer's taskmasters. .

Horn hit scatbacl-1 Thompson on a 40-yard aerial and end Don Reynolds for ten, to give the Pioneers two of their three counters. Stillwater started unimpressively, unable to move the ball until the final stanza, when they drove 35 yards to the Eagles five. where Thompson plunged into the end zone as they rolled hack the carpet on the U. S. Grant Eagles, 7-o. The visiting citians resisted stubbornly but the fired up Pioneers had two good reasons to win. First was the matter of the battle being the Pioneers home- coming, and second-but surely not the least-was that the players had taken it on themselves to dedicate the game to one of their buddies, Mike Cleverdon. Mike went out for football his freshman, sophomore and junior years, and had planned on playing his senior year, but was forced to sit out the campaign because of a back iniury. Ierry Eades Mike Gray A convoy of Pioneers led by Thompson, Greene and Reynolds close in on a U. S. Grant ball carrier. VVins over Perry, 25-7, Chilocco, 27-O, and North- east, 25-0, made the Pioneers a threat to be reckoned with as they headed into their first big league test of the season-lilackwell. Blackwell went into the game a six point favorite but when the firing had finished they had all of the statistics except a 18-6 score in their favor. Horn notched up all three of the Pioneers tallies in the fumble filled contest that saw the ball change hands six times via fumbleitis. SEVEN DOWN, STILLWATER ROLLS ON Rested, poised and confident, the defending cham- pions of the Northern Eight conference moved into Still- water for the showdown battle to determine the circuit champs. The mighty Cushing Tigers, who had captured three straight league flags, won their last 27 consecutive regular season games, and had bested the locals for three Conzinucfd to Page 103 Ioe Horn Edgar Long -9:11-i 'FE' ifsifiaelaf . if f Q .-vs, ., 4 ..

CUSHING TIGERS ARE UPSET I2-2 But Coach Turvey's charges had other plans for the Tigers. ln those plans were included a stunning I2-2 upset that shook the state. Before 4.ooo ecstatically mind- ed viewers, the Pioneers played the best game of their lives, as they toppled the two-touchdown favored Tigers. Seldom have the locals exhibited such a team effort. No one player could be given credit for the win as each player played each play as if his very life depended upon ll. Never before has line play reigned so supreme at Stillwater, Outweighed nearly zo pounds per man, the superbly conditioned forwards gave the Tiger linemen a night they will remember for the rest of their days Horace Nloore leaps high into the air to pick off a Guthrie aerial in a 55-o Pioneer victory. Don Reynolds Sam Sheehan ll with horror. Spearheaded by Lee Roy Daniel, Sam Myers. Gary Rippy and Chris Bolton the Pioneer bulwark con- tained Cushing's hearltled backs for most the game. Stillwater struck first blood late in the opening quarter when Thompson brought local fans to their feet as he hit between tackle and end to cut to the outside and raced unmolested 52 yards to the promised land. Cushing came out of the locker rooms and started their longest drive of the skirmish late in the third frame when they started on their own zo and marched to the Pioneer five, VVith a first down on the Stillwater five, the Tigers could go no further than the one in their four plays, as the Pioneer line would not yield. Bunch dropped back to punt for the locals but Cushing's all-American tackle, Ronald Rowden, crashed through and blocked the kick in the end Zone to give the visitors a safety.

CONFERENCE CHAMPS ENTER PLAY OFFS After the Cushing triumph, the Pioneers entered the state class KA' play-offs by entertaining Putnam City on Thanksgiving day. The Pirates of Oklahoma City brought with them a single-wing offense and were ex- pected to take the contest. But, Turvey's regulars were not to taste defeat yet, as they displayed a brilliant all- around game, nearly running away from the citians, 27-6.

But lady luck was not to shine on the Pioneers as they just couldn't get started and dropped a heartbreak- er to the Eagles, 6-0. So ends one of Stillwater's greatest season's on the gridiron and certainly one of their most memorable and unforgetable. Many seasons will pass before anyone will forget this Pioneer football team. VVhenex'er and where- ever football fans gather to reminis and recall the 1957 Pioneer football team, they will always remember the Cushing game and the stubborn eleven who would not take no for an answer.

On the way to the state championship the Pioneers played through their Northern Eight Conference schedule without a defeat for the league crown. Next the Pioneers went to the regional tournament held in Guthrie. Here they de- feated the Cushing Tigers 7-o in the first round and coped a 7-1 victory over the Guthrie Blue lays in the finals. Entering into the sectionals of the state play-offs the determined Pioneers downed a powerful Guymon crew 10-2. From this point the local baseballers traveled to Norman to participate in the State Class A play-offs. Oklahoma City Northeast was the first to fall victim to Stillwater as the Lopermen defeated the Vikings 3-2. In the finals the Pioneers downed Pryor 11-1 to win the State Championship. Bruce Andrew, shortstop, and Montie Greene, pitcher, were chosen to the All-State team. Andrew, a four year letterman, was the leading hitter for the Pioneers with a .415 average, Greene was the leading pitcher as he hurled through 9 gams without a defeat. Returning lettermen for the Pioneers are Gene Colasacco, Donnie Greene, Glenn Den- ny, Russell Williamson, Lee Roy Daniel, Cecil Epperley, Bob Erickson, Tom Holland.

CGM 1957 edition of the Stillwater Pioneer track team climaxed a most successful season by taking third place at the state track and field meet held at Norman, Oklahoma. Stillwater's crack 880-yard relay team, compsed of Benny Bunch, Keith Thomas, Dick Iones, and Ierry Thompson upset favored Durant in one of the featured races of the day. This was the Pioneer's lone first place taken at the meet. Racking up nine first places, the Pioneers stomped all conference opposition while sweeping up the Northern Eight conference track championship with a total of 87 points compared to the 88 points compiled by the six other league teams. Under the tutelage of Coach lim Harris, the Pioneers entered the Southwestern Recreation meet at Fort Worth, Texas, Duncan Invitational, Bison Relays at Shawnee, and Aggie Relays on the Lewis field oval. The Stillwater spcedsters went on to win regional at Tonkawa and the right to enter the Norman State meet. Bob Wright, a previous high iumper and pole vaulter, ran the fastest mile yet recorded in Pioneer record books since Bob Buchanan in 1952. Also Ierry Thompson and Don Reynolds attributed several individual honors for the Pioneer cause. teadily improving throughout the year, the Stillwater high, cross-country squad reached their extreme by placing an unexpected third out of a team total of eleven teams entered in the state meet held at Norman this year. The fighting Pioneer thinclads were led by captain Dick Powell, senior letterman, taking eighth place out of a field of 75 competitors in the state meet. Powell was the top scorer of the year for the Pioneers as he was never beaten by one of his ofwn team- mates. Other team members backing up Powell were seniors Mike Glover, Ioe McKenzie, Ray Iohnson, and Ioe White. Sophomores competing were Stanley Osborn, Dick Tarpey, Mike Criswell, and Cy Gilbreath. All in all the Stillwater distance runners had one of their finest seasons yet recorded. They placed sixth in the first meet of the year at Shawnee, won a dual with Putnam City here, ran fourth at the Aggie Relays here, third at Tulsa, and third in the state meet at Norman. Tulsa teams were again as powerful as they always have been in the past taking either first or second in every meet.

As far as they were concerned, we .vere just "freshmen" with foolish ideas and infantile ways. However, they took a second look and were sur- prised to see an exceptional class with clever ideas. They realized that once we were determined, no one could stop us and, consequently, they watched us get things done. As Sophomores, we were doing great. By now, every- one knew we were really sharp. Admiration and respect grew rapidly. Now we were juniors and history was being made. VVe were the class with "a lot on the ball." VVe were really gettings things done now. Three-fourths up the ladder of knowledge and terrific times, we felt like we were at the top of the world, already. Now, as Seniors, we offer our crown to anyone who can meet the challenge. However, the challenge is ex- tremely difficult and it will, by no means, be a simple task. There shall never be another class like the class of '58, It seems as though we are equalled by none, but envied by all. Although our predecessors had tried in vain to "cool the cats" for several years, the Seniors of '58, with their enthusiasm, spirit, vitality, leadership, and talent sparked the school to a smashing victory over the Tigers. Yes, Cushing was beaten and the Pioneers went to State. At h l etic events reigned high for us, the Seniors. Cushing, our biggest rival, was beaten and we knew we would reach other high goals with the wrestling, basketball, baseball, and track seasons approaching. Our boys were determined fthey had been signing their an- nuals "State Champs-l58" since 1956, and everyone had confidence in them. VVe leave SHS a little sad but full of pride. We will always boast that we are Stillwater High's 1958 Seniors. Our laurels are many. our victories are far-reaching, and our accomplishments are countless. We have had our successes and our "always excit- ing times." We are still the class. Now, we can only hope the underclassmen have received enough of our in- spiration to make them real Pioneers, to carry on to the best of their ability, and to keep the tradition'of Still- water High School alive.

This has not always been easy, but by working together as a unit and with the help of our sponsors we have found it truly beneficial and fun. Besides our obvious aim of gaining knowledge, which we went about determindly and sometimes a bit wildly, our year was a succession of social triumphs. The Ir.-Sr. Prom has been the main goal of our social en- deavors. Since we were Freshmen, we had planned and looked forward to this event. This was an experience that was to be ours but once. The first view of the ball- room was awe inspiring-and the supper preceding was a culinary not to be equalled. The social activities brought to light a common prob lem-lack of money. This problem was pleasantly re- moved by sponsoring a football concession, a scag drag, cupid's ball and the traditional Iunior Workday. Our committees this year did a tremendous job of getting things done. Of course they had the full coopera- tion of the Iunior Class which made it so much easier and more pleasant to work. The versatility of the class was demonstrated by our representation on the athletic teams and the number of outstanding students. We have all been proud to be Iuniors, but we are looking forward to taking on the responsibilities of Seniors. This is another challenge to our abilities, and it is the greatest we have yet faced, but feel that by con- tinuing as we have been we will overcome it. Fun? Yes, we've had fun, and our class had proved again that persistence, unity, and integrity are the keys to success. I55 PROM-Iuniors and Seniors will be well entertained "At the Hop" come spring. Ann Helms, Kay Davies, Larry Iones, and Betty Collyar are looking over some ideas for dance programs for the Iunior-Senior prom.

Sa hamcvze twe have gone through the school year with jest and vigor. At the beginning of the school year we were ready to settle down to the work at handg to become active in its clubs and organizations. This was the trial time, and it was proved that the Sophomores could handle any situation. Also, by the class' participation in the sports fields and in various school ac- tivities demonstrated that we could do our part in Stillwater High. The Sophomores know now the responsibilities that they will face and are confident of the years ahead.

There have been many changes from the shy junior higher to the high school freshman. When they walked down the halls at the beginning of the year, they felt very small, and now they know all the faces and are beginning to find their places in SHS. Ioining of organizations was one of the hardest tasks the Freshman undertook. They had to decide what organizations interested them enough so that they would stick to them until they graduated. The annual Freshman trip was an experience they will never forget. It was interest- ing, educational and fun.

Sarah Parrott pdaneez ith Iournalism II students rests the responsibility of producing the yearbook and the editing of the Stillwater ,-Xll'School News, Stu- .lents in this class are persons who have attained a grade of "B" or better in three previous English :ourses and in Iournalism l. Ours is a busy first semester each year. Beginning with organizational elections in the final semester of the previous year, Iournalisin II students compose their yearbook. All classes must have individual pictures, all organizations have group and action shots taken, Sports events must be covered. ln fact, no stone must be left unturned from the photography angle, for any year- book is just as strong as its least coverage. Co-Editor Doris Duclivvall Carolyn Morgan . Darla Hansen, Busincacs Manager l82 C Irfulutio I1 ffrl Phil Stout Photography Cover selection, content, layout, theme, all must be decided by stu- dents in this important public infor- mation volume. Names, ever so carefully checked, must be perfectly spelled. Faces must be accurately identified. Departmental coverage must be balanced. And last, but by no means least, subscriptions must be soldg and yearbooks must be dis- tributed to the subscriber. Errors ARE made, apologies are made for themg but for students ranging in ages from seventeen to nineteen who handle over thiry-four hundred dollars each year, who handle thousands of photographs, and who must please not only stu- dents but also parents and teachers, we feel that our task is still a pleas- urable one and profitable one for which we are truly proud. Iohn Garner Sports 'P l . qlor the second consecutive year stu- dents of the Iournalism I class have work- ed together with other students of Still- water High to put together and bring to you the Stillwater All-School News. Those of you who can remember back to the days when once a month a mimeo- graphed paper called the "VVagon Wheelw came to you with only small bits of local gossip and a few other little tid-hits, you can realize what ll vast improvement has been made. Through the hard work of Phil Stout and Iohn Garner, along with their fine Phil Stout ' I .I 1 4 ' ' Lydia Townsend Editor ' Connie C-reiner Bob Marshall Diane Thompson ' I Dick Powell Rhonda Lawrence y 'Q staff of writers, they have been able to print a paper with columns of interest such as, "Pads and Fashions" which is written by Kay Davies, that gives hints as to what style of clothes girls are wearing and Bob Marshall puts his ideas about thc movies coming to Stillwater in his column called "Movies." With the help of Connie Greiner, Dick Powell, Diane Thompson, Bobbie Kay Haldemann, Rhonda Lawrence, and others keeping copy coming in, so the paper wouldn't be under set, itls time to make the traditional "30" at the close of a won- derful year.
