he role of students in this age of space travel trials has changed Once long
ago the aim of education was for the better understanding of the written word that per
sons might be able to read their own interpretations of the Bible Today our concern

National Honor society is for honored students. 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.

semesters, with the exception of the freshman class in which only the first semester
grades are averaged. New members are announced in February or March each year.
The highest ten percent in academic standing of each class for gra.leJ are eligible for
nomination. Activities of State Honor held every spring are a pot luck supper and banquet
with the installation of the new officers. The opening exercises of all assemblies are lead by
State Honor members.
Being a member of State Honor Society is a great honor and encourages scholarship
from the first week of school.

They give the boys the encouragement to go on to victory. , i
The requirements of a pep club girl are to purchase a uniform consisting of a royal Lggg
blue skirt and sweater. The dues are fifty-cents a semester.
Une of the most exciting events that comes to Stillwater High School is the selection
of cheerleaders. This year the method of selection has been changed, enabling the student
body to take part and vote. Only those who have attended all sports events, wear their -'f
uniform, and attend all business meetings may tryout, Ten girls are selected by a panel j
of judges for the finals. After which three junior and three sophomore girls are chosen

Lending the necessary vim, vigor, and vitality to
all athletic'events and pep assemblies are the six Pioneer
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-
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
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.

0 doubt about it, Thespian Guild members have fun while they work. 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
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.

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-

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.

uture Homemakers of America is an organization which is both purposeful and
fun. 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.

CGhe Stillwater high school concert band, under the direction of Kenneth Rhea,
has had a very busy year. 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.

A band is not complete without at least three smart stepping twirlers. And of
course there is always some use for an Assistant Drum Maior. He takes over when the
Drum Major has to he gone and takes care of the Band Queen. Pictured above are
Carol Berger ,lane Grimsley, Deanne Shingleton, twirlers and Don Linsenmeyer, Assist-
ant Drum Major.
One of the main activities of the
l band is the annual Tag Day. Here
members are preparing for this event

ing a three-year period from 1936-39 as a football coach,
Ralph Hamilton won all games except one, attaining a
record of two undefeated seasons with one loss at the be-
ginning of the third season and going on to be undefeated
the remainder of that year.
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.
For These Reasons the Student Body Wishes to Dedicate the
Athletic Section of the 1957-58 Pioneer to Coach Ralph Hamilton

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
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
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

most respected backs in the state and undoubtedly the
fastest, was two year letterman halfback, Ierry Thomp-
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.

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.

Rested, poised and confident, the defending cham-

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

But Coach Turvey's charges had other plans for the

upset that shook the state. Before 4.ooo ecstatically mind-

lives, as they toppled the two-touchdown favored Tigers.

although Coach Martin Loper, during his first three years at SHS produced
some of the finest baseball teams in the state, it was his 1957 edition of the Pioneer hard-
ballcrs that were the first in SHS baseball history ever to win the title of State Champions.
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
Tulsa teams were again as powerful as they always have been in the past taking
either first or second in every meet.

:when we entered SHS, the upperclassmen did
not give us a thought. As far as they were concerned, we
.vere just "freshmen" with foolish ideas and infantile
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
As Sophomores, we were doing great. By now, every-
one knew we were really sharp. Admiration and respect
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.

e, as Iuniors, feel that we have pioneered many
fields and have attained the goals set before us. 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
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
PROM-Iuniors and Seniors will be well
entertained "At the Hop" come spring.

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.

CGW: Freshman class of 1957-58 has had a big year. 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.

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
C Irfulutio I1
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.
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
Through the hard work of Phil Stout
and Iohn Garner, along with their fine

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
With the help of Connie Greiner, Dick

keeping copy coming in, so the paper
