U 1 Sifrcufrfrd Combining art work with photography, the 1962 SANDSPUR has endeavored to bring you an accurate and memorable ac- count ot the school year 1961-1962 at Val- dosta High School. Classes, sports, activities, honors, and faculty have been recorded in an effort to capture the insuppressible Spirit of 'Dosta. This is the spirit which leads the Wildcats to repeated championships and scholastic achievement, welcomes new students, and generally motivates any activity in which the student body is involved. To represent this spirit in a tangible form the staff has chosen the Wildcat, a gay but determined little cat, who appears in each section of the SANDSPUR. iffy , 4, - Petite Mrs. Wisenbaker is the proud mother of a six foot son, Bill, who is a senior at VHS.

The Guidance Department, composed of Miss Marguerite Ford and a capable staff of VHS girls, meets this need. Miss Ford's office is always open to students who need help. Seniors and iuniors especially need Miss Ford's skillful advice and aid as they seek in- formation about a confusing array of standardized tests, choose a life vocation, and apply for ad- mission to a college. Vital to underclassmen as well, the Guidance Department is an integral part of VHS. Administering standardized tests occupies a large part of Miss Ford's day. Miss Ford's calm demeanor is well known to all students who seek her guidance. She received her AB in Education from VSC. Graduate work has been done at Emory University and at the University of Georgia. One of Miss Ford's duties is counseling with parents. Here she discusses Bud Bridges' work with his mother, Mrs. Howard Bridges. s 1 A , . Aid Students , Mrs. Burgsteiner operates the intercom for the morning devotionals.

Because math's promi- nence in the modern world as the language of sci- ence and the tool of finance and business cannot be over estimated, the math department is one of the most important departments of VHS. This year'VHS has been one of the few schools in Georgia in which the new forms and concepts of math developed recently are being taught. Concepts of sets of numbers, their intersection and union demonstrated by graphs and Venn diagrams are iust some of the 'ideas that have given students a new and clearer view of mathe- matics. W. E.

With several players figuring in the scoring column, the Wildcats ran up their most decisive victory of the season. VALDOSTA 7 MOULTRIE O Hampered by fumbles, penalties, and mistakes early in the game, the Wildcats found the going rough against an unbeaten and highly roused Moul- trie team. Valdosta finally pulled ahead 7-O after two of their touchdowns had been called back, and from then on the Wildcats and the Packers staged a see-saw defensive battle. The Wildcafs eventually emerged the victor in a game that turned out to be the closest one the Wildcats had all season. VALDOSTA 26 WILLINGHAM O Strong and rugged as they were, the Willing- ham Rams were no match for an equally strong and rugged Valdosta crew. Playing a regular, me- thodical game, the Wildcats registered their fourth straight shutout. Rick Thomas is run out of bounds by a stubborn Blue Devil but not before he picks up valuable yardage.

VALDOSTA 54 WARNER ROBINS 14 Although the Demons from Warner Robins were a game and courageous eleven, they were no-match for the Wildcats who led 54-O at half- time. The first team then relaxed and watched the reserves finish the game. Led by Jackie Hammond, later voted the Wildcats' outstanding opponent, the Demons retaliated with two touch- downs. VALDOSTA 35 LAGRANGE O ln a game that decided the l-AAA champion- ship, Valdosta's Wildcats completely demolished the LaGrange Grangers' title hopes, and a team that was supposed to give the Wildcats one of their toughest games fell to bitter defeat. Closing the season with a shutout, the Wildcats began preparation for the defense of their AAA state title. VALDOSTA 26 RICHMOND ACADEMY O Valdosta's small but deter- mined Wildcats met a Richmond Academy eleven of giant size in the South'Georgia Championship game and left Cleveland Field with a de- cisive victory. The Wildcats, out- weighed at every position, played one of their finest games. They dis- played a devastating attack and a tough defense.

Lee played a close first half, and the Wildcats left the field with a 7-6 margin.

They belong to the members of the freshman class, the largest class in the history of the school. Shortly after the beginning of school, these newcomers were given the custom- ary Freshman March welcome. As usual, Freshman March, a proi- ect of the Student Council, was held in the gymnasium, and its date was not given out in advance. The freshmen crawled onto the gymnasium floor through a tunnel of sheets and chairs. Then, to the amusement of the upperclassmen, a num- ber of them were singled out to engage in such activities as pogo-stick racing, hula dancing, and potato pushing. When the ceremonies were over, the freshmen could reflect that now they would be forced to accept no more in- dignities as new arrivals, and that next year they themselves would be superior upperclassmen. Greg Jordan stumbles forward to win the sack race, closely following him are Roy Lassiter and Carol Sherwood. Benita Thomas "hops" her way to victory in the pogo-stick race.
