For Ten years he shaped The lives of sTudenTs in our communiTy. No words could express The depfhs of love and respecT we all shared for him and for his way of life. On January 6, 1959, The MasTer Teacher reclaimed The life of our friend. He had given himself unselfishly and unTiringly for ThirTy-four years To The elevaTion of lives in The schools of Texas and Oklahoma.

We, the Senior class, will our first six rows in the auditorium to the iuniors, in hopes that you will fill them up as well as we did, figura- tively speaking, of course. Twelve years ago a group of scrawny, straight haired youngsters who were to be known later as 1959 Velma-Alma graduates, began their laborious ascent to the goal for which everyone in school is striving-the year when they will be Seniors. Those starting at Velma or Alma were: Hubert Allred, Alvey Brown, Thelma Cowan, Donna Kay Carroll, Beth Lane, Dawl McLemore, Ima Jo McClellan, Jerry McCurry, Anna McMurtry Speed, Marilyn Norton, Eula Faye Oxford, Jimmy Oxford, Katherine Pickens, Bill Pogue, Allen Presgrove, Jack Sanner, Judy Sanner, Karron Savage, Darla Smith, Sheridan Stewart, Linda Wheeler, and Terry Womack. The teachers surely had a bunch of running noses to wipe. SECOND GRADE-We picked up speed in our second year when Clyde O. Womack, "Racehorse," Jr. raced down from Fairfax. Others who came were Patsy Neeld from Duncan, Bobby Fox from Burkburnett, Texas and little Miss Bella Lee Spoonemore. THIRD GRADE-After a long hot summer everyone returned in Sep- tember with only one new student-Cederal Nixon from Duncan. This was the year Darla Smith thought Alma was easier than Velma. FOURTH GRADE-We gained two students in our fourth year: This was a good year for Judy Sanner since Elzey Mercer moved here from Illinois and also Sondra Deffner from Ada. FIFTH GRADE-The students who came to us in our fifth year were: Harry Reynolds from Hominy, Judy Jo Gordon from Duncan, Leroy Davis from Duncan, and Darrell Davis from Ada. SIXTH GRADE-The students we gained this year were: Helen Snyder from Shidler, John Cochran from Shawnee, Joseph Stewart from Gatlln, Teddy Wright from Shidler, Nola Graham from Heavner, James Matthews from Salina, Bill Washabaugh from Claud, Bella Spoonemore decided she liked Fox better so she left. SEVENTH GRADE-We acquired only two students this year. They were Frankye Brown from Cement, and Don Price from Dundee. Bella Spoonemore returned to V-A from our rival Fox. EIGHTH GRADE-In our eighth year we were scraping the bottom of the barrel. Gene Mullins moved here from Eunice, New Mexico, but we lost Sheridan Stewart who moved to Colorado, but she couldn't stay away so she returned at the end of the year. FRESHMAN-With things going bad in the eighth grade no one moved here in the ninth. As a matter of fact, we lost one student, Nola Graham, who moved to Heavner. SOPHOMORE-Our Sophomore year Larry Henderson iived in from Oklahoma City. Jim Presgrove from Fox, coon dogs and all, Bobby Parks from Flenpool, Gweneth Cowan from Duncan, Bob Wade from Dickson, Carolyn Turner from Duncan. JUNIOR-We gained two students this year, they were Kay O'Bryant from Chandler, who took salutatorian from Leroy Davis. Verna Milburn moved in from Ardmore. We lost Teddy Wright when she moved to Shidler. SENIOR-We finally made it as Seniors. The greatest ancl most won- derful year of all as we leave high school and enter the world as adults. iSuppose to be anyway.i Our Senior year brought us Don Jackson from Deer Creek, Alice Short McKelvain from Wayne, Kenneth Dodson from Duncan, Carolyn Rogers from Cushing, Teddy back from Shidler and Nola Graham back from Heavner. Bob Wade moved to Dickson for two days, but couldn't stand to be away from dear ole V-A, so he returned. Our officers are: Gene Mullins, President, Larry President, Dawl McLemore, Secretary-Treasurer, Judy Our Student Council Representatives are: Judy Clyde O. Womack. Four Queens were chosen from our class this year, they are: Football Queen Attendant Henderson, Vice- Sanner, Reporter. Jo Gordon and Queen, Teddy Wright, who was also a Basketball and a cheerleader, Basketball Queen, Judy Sanner, who was also Head Cheerleader, Annual Queen, Bath Laney and Band Queen Sheridan Stewart, who was also a twirler. SENIOR PROPHECY As we gaze into the future we see the members of the 1959 Senior Class, and they have scattered to the four winds . . . First we go to Paris where Rock and Roll have made a big splash and none other than Larry Henderson was the originator of the Parie' Hipsters Club, around the corner is Patsy Neeld and her French sodas, I guess she will always be a ierk, a soda ierk that is . . . Sheridan Stewart has lived up to her dreams and is the leading New York psychologist with horn rimmed glasses and an old maid's knot of hair. While we are here in New York let's drop in and visit the gang leader of the underworld, Kennth iPreacherJ Dodson and his two right hand men, Harry Reynolds, and Terry Womack, their gun moll is that quiet thing Carolyn Rogers. Who would have thought that of her. James Matthews is in the Redwood Forest listening to the heartbeat of a 92 Deffner and Ima Jo getting their M. R. S. Leroy Davis are still down on the farm trying to raise money to go to Hawaii where they natives. Alvey always young Sapling, with his stethoscope. Sondra McClellan are still going to O. U. in hope of degrees. Alvey Brown, Dawl Mclemore, and can learn the Hula dance from some cute little was a romeo. Jack Sanner is now in Indiana racing his famous and notorious speedster the John Harden Special inspired by one of his old teachers Mr. John Harden Jr. Hubert Allred is in Texas where he has iust invented a new car blower to dry diapers while travel- ing. Marriage helped as an aid, not a hindrance, to success. Frankie Brown is now in Washington, D. C., where he is running an informa- tion booth for the President of the United States Gene Mullins, we always thought that Gene would amount to something. Donna Kay Carroll has iust won her second Miss Universe Contest where she modeled her famous leopard skin bikini designed by the world famous designer, Joseph Stewart. Bill Pogue is still trying to break the world's record for number of people in a phone booth, WKY is staying posted. Kay O'Bryant better known as the brain is busy teaching the little Edmondson's to mind their manners and perhaps someday they will have the English IV class hating them for their A's. Bella Spoonemore still has no driver's license, but who needs one with Turner Falls and Wilson iust around the corner. Guess the boys at V-A weren't her type. Gweneth Cowan was the quiet one in class, but you should see her now. Gwen and her lovely voice have moved Julie London out. Judy Jo Gordon never had it so good, she finally made it to her dream city, New Jersey, and has become the leader of a teen-age beatnik club. Her club is going strong with no vices allowed. Some of her best club members are Thelma Cowan, Cedral Nixon. In Neiman-Marcus of Dallas we see the world famous beauty salon of Karron Savage. Karron has iust finished one of her famous hairdos WINDY BLOWN UP SIDE DOWN. Jim Presgrove and Teddy Wright are still together and of this date they hold the world's record for being engaged. Jim still hasn't fallen for the mar- riage idea. Perhaps Teddy should have Jim talk to Bobby Fox. Bobby married his high school girl friend and seems perfectly happy with his situation. Bill Washabaugh is the most eligible bachelor in the country and if you ask Bill the story of his success he will tell you that he loves them and leaves them. Now we switch you to Ameri- ca's trouble spot Formosa and General Don Jackson is sending out his crack spy patrol of Fearless Bob Parks, Big Boy Don Price, and crazy legs Allan Presgrove. Where trouble is, they is. Eula Faye Ox- ford used her brain to an advantage and now is teaching English at her Alma Mater V-A. Bether Lane is the leading movie queen, everyone in Velma was sure of her success, she is so sweet and beautiful. A rare combination. Anna Speed, Alice McKelvian are still in Velma, they are busy cooking and caring for their little "off- springs." Jerry McCurry has been working on his first book for helping High School Lovers. His book is based on his own ex- periences. So far, he only has five pages. Darla Smith is in the lover's capital, Rome, italy, where she has iust disposed of her seventh hus- band, and her heart is broken . . . won't some male come and console her. Killer Clyde Womack is busy raising his racing thorough- breds. Last week his prize runner almost won the Kentucky Derby, the only trouble was that his horse ran the wrong way. Judy Sanner Mercer is working in Duncan as a typist while Elzey Mercer spends his time at Lake Murrary with the five little Mercers teaching them the fine art of skiing. John Cochran is the gay blade of the Shawnee farm country. His farm is a big tourist attraction. He has rule for the tourist. They must be female tourist only. iust one Mrs. Poteet has reached a height of success, her style shows are on TV. Her manager and bus driver is Jimmy Oxford. Didn't know Jimmy cared about fashions, or is the chance to chauffeur pretty girls? Darrell Davis is at the Olympics for his third year. Texas A8-M is determined to make him a winner once. Mr. Biffle is giving parliamentary procedure lessons to the U. S. Senate. Carolyn Turner is spending her summers in Monterey, that first exciting summer exposed her to the Latin Lovers. Linda Wheeler is still working at Woolworth's. Come, Linda, boys aren't that scarce. Nola Graham came back to V-A to graduate, but soon left with Johnny, we can add another wedding picture. Marilyn Norton and Katherine Pickens are now in Norman, as Nurses not inmates, of course. Verna Milburn has good experience holding a shorthand book and balancing in the boss's lap, who would have thought Verna would like to do a thing like that. Helen Snyder is giving private tapping lessons at Arthur Murray's studio in Oklahoma City. Will success spoil Helen Snyder. Bob Wade is now traveling around seeing the world as president of the U.B.A. lUnited Buns of Americal. The roll for the passing senior class has been read and we find them all in the place they dreamed of being. 0540: fifwafwlo t :Abbie Kay O,Bryam' Salutatorian Judy Gordon, All-Around Girl Elza Pollard, All-Around Boy.
