'Year after year buses empty their loads each morning, and people stream in waves into the hallways and classrooms. To the rhythm of bells, tides of people wash in and out of the rooms and corridors and finally empty. Carl Sand- burg in his poem "Skyscraper" says, "lt is the men and women, boys and girls so poured in and out all day that give the building a soul of dreams and thoughts and memories." As each individual forms a part of the mass, so each personality contributes to the whole of TRACK'S soul--that abstract thing we call school spirit.

This is the motto of the American Field Service which is sponsoring our first AFS student at Taft High School. Coming to Taft High School for a year of study is Miss Sveinhild Brattaaker of Al, Norway Hildi, a name given to her by her American family, came to Taft in August and will return to her parents Mr. and Mrs. Lars Brattaaker sometime in late July of this year. Through the AFS program it is hoped that Hildi will return home and tell the people of Norway about her life in the United States as this is the way to peace. is 7513 gs . . . fjqg' Qgcfoof I8 5 , 3, 5 it N, u 5 li 'bi Wl"'Fl'b4"rb-4 5 , i Taft is an edifice of weathered brick, time-worn wood, and rain-stained concrete. Through the past years, hundreds of students have walked its halls, sat in its many desks, and enjoyed the warmth of high school friendships, keeping the torch of tradition afiaime while kindling new sparks to light the way for future classes. Each in his own way has added to the heritage of Taft while growing in knowledge, understanding, and maturity. I9 ,Y A 1., T- 1. - .. 5- ' Q..

To create an interest in industry, the home, and the farm, and to prepare students to live a more productive life is the goal of the-vocational departments. No matter how large or small the job, their task is important for them- selves, as well as others. The vocational departments of Taft High School include: Home Economics, Vocational Agriculture, Auto Mechanics and Electrical Trades.

The Greyhounds were often outmanned, but never quit. Their desire made up for their lack of experience as they managed to win four games and tie one for an overall record of four wins, four losses and one tie. In district play the Hounds gained a three way tie for third place with Aransas Pass and Aransas County. All three had identical 3-3-1 records in district play. Bobby Nance, Lester Rhodes, and Frank Davis represented the Greyhounds on the all district team, but every Hound deserves recognition for his effort. Recognition should also go to Coach Herb Sigle and Coach Jon Markham along with the entire coaching staff, who did a fine job throughout the season. 74 r X IVXL COACHES: C1 to rj Herb Sigle, Glenn Schoenfeld, Ion Markham, Art McMillan, Gilbert Moehnke A11 District 28-AA Frank Davis, Lester Rhodes, Bobby Nance 75 Muni ZUITZ Season Qfoener The Taft Greyhounds defeated the Mathis Pirates 19 to 6 in the opening game of the season.
