Calloway from T.M.I. came over on Mondays to show us pictures of various types. The different kinds of movies were appreciated by the students. We had pictures such as war invasions, old-time minstrel shows and comic features. Also, Coach Joe Strong showed us movies on rainy days when we could not go outdoors at play periods. Some of the war movies were entitled: "Dropping of the Atomic Bomb", "Invasion of Iwo Jima", and g'Bombardment of Germany". One of the outstanding features was called, "Old-time Minstrel Days". This feature had real sound effects and singing. It was a hit with the boys. Another military feature was called "Military Etiquette", which showed how a soldier should be during drill and at class. The boys really profited from seeing that movie. "Military Exercises" was another film, which showed how a soldier keeps in condition through exercises and calisthenics. We hope that the boys next year will enjoy the movies as well as we did this year. -David Steves, jr. Houston Munson, fr. PROGESS SHOW During the first month of school, Col. Bondurant broke the news to us that the General Motors "Preview of Progress" show was coming to the Academy sometime soon. We all awaited the event with much eagerness, and our keen anticipation was justly rewarded when we saw the show. The demonstrators rigged up quite a laboratory on the stage in our study hall. They first showed how synthetic rubber was 'made in a matter of seconds. The boys were startled when the rubber compound bounced out of the bottle onto the stage. Next they showed how criminals are caught with a powder that glowed under black lights. During this demonstration, three boys were used, and they each received a gold pencil, after a powdered dollar bill was found by means of the lights on one of them. Last of all, the visitors showed us how jet planes operate, by using as a jet a CO-2 cartridge. All boys were thrilled when the miniature plane shot through the air on its guide wire. -Mickey King. LIFE AMONG THE BOARDERS Academy boarders look forward to Saturday, for it is a custom for the boys to go to town each Saturday to see a show and to do some shopping. They come back with an assortment of things bought at the five-and- ten and at the model airplane shop. Gomic books, airplane sets and fish bowl aquariums, in order named, have been the three most bought classifications this year. When special events come to the city, we nearly always see them. The boarders went by special bus to enjoy the rodeo and livestock shows, held in the new Coliseum in February. On holidays there were special treats for us. On Hallowe'en we had an "old-fashion" party with apple dunking and all, in the dormitory. And then at Christmas, the faculty and the boys had a tasty turkey dinner and a Christmas tree, too. On Valentine's we had a special supper before going to a good show at the Uptown as we usually do on Saturday evenings. All in all, the Academy boarders enjoyed a well-rounded entertainment season. -james W. Donnell, III PAGE 100 ,Q K gif? V ' , NIQi4t'.

West Sponsors Willerson, J. Witt During the past year, the literary societies, the Alamo and the David Crockett, presented fine arguments for their existence. Never were the debates more spirited, and they aroused great interest among the students. The programs of thc two societies were of different types. Every boy had a chance to show that he could speak or take part in writing news notes, telling jokes, or playing musical instruments. One of the most interesting debates was: "Resolved, that television will take the place of movies in the next fifteen years." Affirmative speakers on this occasion were Bratten and Dill, while the negative was upheld by Evans and Dimaline. Another interesting debate was: "Re- PAGE 120 'A' 'ff A' 'ff A' A' A' A' Crockett Society David Crockett Literary Society Houston Munson ,. , ,, President Mickey King ,.,.,...

Petty solved, that the United States should continue to give military aid to Nationalist China." Speaking for the affirmative, were Chalkley and Stradley. The negative speakers were Flannery and Gilliland. Comedy touches were interspersed on occasion to relieve the serious nature of the meetings. A special feature was presented by Kent Qualls, impersonating a winsome country lass in gingham dress and bare feet. She had been away for some time and was obviously glad to see some of her boy friends. On another occasion, David Steves attempted to play a borrowed saxaphone that be- haved in an unruly manner. Never was such an assortment of sounds heard coming out of an instrument. David stuck with his horn, finally mastered it, and played his selection in a creditable way.

Room mates whose rooms are rated the neatest have their names posted on the bulletin board in the study-hall. At the end of the school year, honor pins are awarded the boys, having the most points. Rooms, such as the one pictured above, are typical of the prize winning rooms. PAGE 124 if 'A' A if Commencement "' if A' I' Academy boys always look forward to commencement with joyous anticipation. The exercises combine field clay features, held in San Pedro Park, and literary events, presented in San Pedro Playhouse. At the time of this writing, it is too early to publish this year's pro- gram, but in the belief that many boys will like to have a permanent record of commencement, the highlights of the news story of last year's exercises, as reported in San Antonio Express, are given below: Military adeptness, coupled with proof of scholastic achievements, marked the 63rd annual commence- ment exercises of the San Antonio Academy at San Pedro Playhouse Friday. Eighteen scholarship medals were presented to the class leaders and 76 other medals and awards were given to cadets by Col. W. T. Bon- durant, academy president. Scholarship medals, won by the three top students in each class, were presented to Frank Huntress III, Orvis Maxey and Charles Shields, eighth grade, Creston A. King, Jr., Edward Olmstead and Ronald Katz, seventh grade, Ralph Copeland, Gus Amund- sen and Scott Petty, sixth grade, Jay Lee Lammons, Larry Day and Richard Copeland, fifth grade: Robert Brown- ing, Logan Huntress and Edward Peet, fourth grade, and Yale Hicks Fergu- son, Alvord Rutherford and Jimmie Morris, third grade. ROOM COMPETITION Cadets winning first place in best room competition in their divisions of the dormitories, were John Henry Glasin and Gus Amundsen of Galves- tong Dan Estes of Wichita Falls and Guillermo Valdez of Chihuahua, Mex- ico: Alton Stewart of San Antonio and John Stradley of Dallas, and Arthur and John Santikos of Corpus Christi. Piano playing awards, offered by Mrs. E. E. Ogilvie, teacher, were pre- sented to Gus Ayres, Eugene Bohne, Tom Chalkley, Ralph Copeland, Richard Copeland, David Christian, Frank Falkstein, Gary Glober, Keith Huber, Bruce Kuemmel, Jay Lam- mons, Larry McDaniel, Don Nelson, Stanley Pierce, David Reagor, John Savage, John Schaefer and Jim Willerson. For having had no demerits during the school year, honor pins were pre- sented to Creston King, Andy Smith and Steve Hubberd. Presentation of the no demerit award to King marked the fourth year he has been honored in this manner. BAND MEDALS Ilonor medals and ribbons in band instrument playing were awarded by Jimmie Klein, instructor, to Allan Bobys, Phil Barshop, David Christian, Gordon Cizon, Clayton Conoly, Ralph Copeland, Richard Copeland, David Fetzer, John Flannery, Van Howard, Lantz Hubberd, Steve Hubberd, Logan Huntress, Don Huey, Bobby King, Charles Leake, Perry Lewis, Douglas Muir, Richard Nussle, Glen Passmore, Richard Pent, Jimmie Phillips, Stanley Pierce, Lev Prichard, Kent Qualls, Forrest Robertson, Fred Rose, Larkin Smith, David Steves, Alton Stewart, Jamie Taylor and Bob West. Cadets of Company Band, com- manded by Cadet Capt. David Christian, received individual ribbons for being the best-drilled outfit on the drill field. Orvis Maxey presented the saluta- tory address and Frank Huntress III gave the valedictory address. ORCHESTRA PLAYS Included on the program of the commencement exercises were Don Nelson, Ralph Copeland, Larry Mc- Daniel, David Christian and Charles Shields, who presented piano selec- tions. The academy 41-piece orchestra played three selections that concluded the program. Short speeches were given by Yale Ferguson, Robert Browning, Jay Lee Lammons, Ralph Copeland and Cres- ton A. King, representing their several grades. The Rev. Sam O. Capers gave the invocation. PAGE 125 RockHouse 'A' Y if if if fi' i' One of the sights of San Pedro Park, opposite the schooli is the old Rock House. Legend has it that this was a fort, built as pro- tection against the Indians. More plausible explanation is that it was the smokehouse for a large home that used to stand before it, where the San Pedro Library is now.
