The library provides a quiet and well stocked center for added learning at R.H.S. Many industrious noises are heard daily as Mr. Be-lisle's students make useful obiects in the "shop.'5 FINE ARTS Fine Arts are also important for a well-rounded education. They broaden one's viewpoint, increase one's culture, and help develop one's personality. "Open your mouths," is an unusual request from a teacher, but out of the music room come many beautiful sounds as ihe result. MR. OSCAR BARNES Instrumental Music, Band. Perfect timing is the key to Mr. Barnes' peppy group. Stirring marches and symphonies are the order of the day. I7 Our senior year has been brimming full and overflowing with an abundance of activities which have made this our most exciting as well as most educational school year. We entered into the Fall season with renewed ambitions to be good scholars and to participate whole heartedly in all phases of school life. A quick inventory reveals that we were very successful. To outline our program we would list first, a full schedule of classes. Many of us earned the maximum number of units by scheduling as many classes as we could. We attended Careers' Day at Lou- isiana Tech and feel that it was most profitable to us. . Impressive to all of us was the planning of and the participating in: our last Homecoming at RHS, the last football game, our last Pepette trip, the last State Track meet, our last pep rally, and our last basketball game. At the Senior Banquet the full im- pact of the fact that we were grad-- uating, gave each of us the mixed emotion of ioy and sorrow. Then the invitations came and we enioyed ex- changing personal cards. No words can describe the feeling that we had as we "chirped" our Alma Mater at the conclusion of our last class assembly, Graduation.

CMOOSEJ COACH FRED GARRETT PHILLIPS HIGGINBOTHAM Head Coach Assistant Coach End Coach Athletic Director Line, Coach Track Coach FOOTBALL RUSTON 28 MINDEN 12 "Game of the Week." This was the way sports scribes all over Louisiana were describing the Ruston-Minden tilt. Minden, a pre- season selection to win the state championship, was a two touch- down favorite over the Bearcats. Ruston surprised the Minden throng almost from the first. The Minden Tide narrowed the gap to 14-12 at intermission. ln the second half, Ruston's line was brilliant, Minden hammered out iust I4 yards, and lost 37. The Tide ended the second half with a minus 17 yards. Shows scored the four touch- downs and Hood kicked the four extra points. - RUSTON 35 SPRINGHILL 19 The Bearcats were now ranked the number one team in the state. However, there was still doubt in some peoples mind. As the gun sounded the end of the fourth -quarter there was no doubt left. Shows again scored four more touchdowns, but this time with con- siderable help from fullback, Wallace Martin. Martin rammed over the line for the fifth touchdown. This was Shows eighth touchdown for the season. Hood kicked the five extra points, beginning his record of 18 straight PAT. RUSTON i4 OUACHITA O It was Shows again who engineered the 14-0 victory over a stubborn band of Ouachita Lions in Monroe. The win was Ruston's third straight. Shows scored both of Ruston's touchdowns and gained a total of 207 yards. Standouts up front for the homelings were big end, Jerry Hood, tackle, George Davidson, and guard, Mike Paine. Offensive fullback Wallace Martin turned in a savagely effective linebacking job on defense. RUSTON 28 HOMER i3 Some 3,000 paying customers filled James Stadium for the first Thursday night game in the history of the school. lt took the Bearcats iust five plays and about two minutes to score after they took the opening kick off. The big gun in the drive was fullback Wallace Martin, who scored from the two. Ruston led an early 7-0, after Hood's Perritt, with cheering him over for his of the game three carries, Hood. Hood placement. Shows traveled touchdown, following a patterned swarm two tackles on him, who on. The final Bearcat score twelfth touchdown of the in addition to Perritt, who the 46 yards to the next of blockers. It was Johnny made it 21-7, the crowd came when Shows banged season. Another highlight piled up 37 yards in iust was the incredible foot-work of Bearcat flanker Jerry ran his string of perfect conversions to 'l5 straight without a miss. FOOTBALL RUSTON 34 WINNFIELD i4 Bearcat fullback Wallace Martin ran 65 yards straight up the middle of the field for Ruston's first touchdown against the Winnfield Tigers. Shows scored the next three touchdowns, the last on a 99V2 yard run from scrimmage, to lift his season total to 90 points. The other Bearcat score came on an 80 yard touchdown pass-play to end, Jerry Hood. Cat end, Jerry Hood ran his consecutive PAT booting streak to 18 in a row before missing a conversion in the third period. OCTOBER i6 'Twas Neville's lucky night!!! RUSTCN 28 JENA 8 The powerful Ruston High Bearcats trampled past outclassed Jena 28-8 in a rain soaked battle on the Giants' field. The win gave the Bearcats a 6-i record for the season. Pat Shows and Wallace Martin directed the rugged Maroon to an early lead, then Head Coach L. .I. Garrett completely cleared his bench as the Bearcats romped to i6 first downs on a muddy slippery field. Shows scored in the first and third quarter, the last on a 48 yard scamper. Fullback Martin, finding the going to his liking, blasted over the middle for a 29 yard touchdown run to put the Maroon in front. Junior right half, Billy Rives, got another touchdown with a one yard drive in the second quarter. The Bearcats mighty forward wall held Jena to only 6 first downs. RUSTON 28 HAYNESVILLE 7 For the Bearcats' incredibly successful head coach, it was the 200th career victory - a record believed to be unequaled in Louisiana schoolboy football coaching. Shows, recaptured the North Louisiana scoring lead as he picked up three touchdowns on runs of 3, 35, and 8 yards. Wallace Martin gave the harrassed Haynesville team every bit as much trouble as Shows. Davidson, Hood, Paine, and Hammon were once again defensive standouts. RUSTON 32 JONESBORO 6 Ruston High, rolling on toward another banner season gained revenge for two years of defe-at at the hands of Jonesboro-Hodge with a decisive 32-6 win over the Tigers in a 2-AA tilt. Shows, the state's leading scorer rambled on to four touchdowns. Martin added the fifth and final Ruston touchdown. The Jackson Parish Bengals, fired- up for the annual traditional contest could never get rolling against the Bearcat forward wall headed by end Don Hammon. The 'Cat record climbed to 8-i, good enough to be ranked second by the United Press International rankings. Rustotv 14 WEST MONROE 28 Spurred on by a skin-tight defense West Monroe's underdog Rebels shocked the powerful Bearcats with three second quarter touchdowns and romped to a 28-14 victory. However, ,the 'Cats' were without the services of their Captains, Davidson and Shows due to iniuries. Wait till next fall. 4 With winter's crisp weather, students settle down to se- rious business and welcome those fes- tive occasions when we rest awhile to to play. WINTER Juniors Music Activities Basketball 43 UNIOR So now they are upperclassmen. Jun- iors are important and a little more grown up. Juniors look forward to ordering Senior rings, giving the Junior Hi-Fi Fol- lies, and planning the Junior-Senior Prom.

TUDE T COU CIL yy The 'I959-60 Ruston High School Student Council, under the leadership of its officers and sponsor, Mrs. L. J. Garrett, had a very successful year. Planning began last summer for the year's activities. The football program was completed and taken to the printer early in June. It had more advertising, more pictures, and more pages than ever before. The council was quite active the first week of school in a freshman orientation program. "Ask Me" tags were worn by all representatives who worked hard to answer the countless questions of "lost" freshmen. Plans for Homecoming began the latter part of July when the theme, "A Terrific Twenty at RHS" was selected. This project could be termed successful because more grads were present than at any other previous year. Bearcat Booster tags, sold by the council, were proudly worn by 500 students during the entire week. The Student Directory was in the planning stages the first months of school. Completed by the end of the first semester, it contained the names, addresses, an-cl phone numbers of 575 students and faculty members. As Christmas holidays drew near, the Student Council laid plans for its annual Good Cheer Drive. Coach Phillips', Mr. Belisle's, Coach Camp- bell's, Coach Higginbotham's and Miss Lewis' first hour classes collected the most cans to lead in the contest. The grand total amounted to 2180 cans, exactly twice as many as last year. The largest and probably most successful proiect the council undertook this year was setting up the Ruston High School Code of Honor. The first step made by the council, after getting the whole-hearted support of Mr. Hanchey and the faculty, was presenting a questionnaire to the student body to find out if there was a need for a Code of Honor in our school. From the answers given we saw that a thing of this type could be useful. These ideas were presented on Student Teacher Day in an assembly program. Some most cooperative teachers gave the student body an opportunity "to see themselves as others see them." The skit was follgwed wifh serious Speeches abouf The problems given by Sfudem. COUl'1Cll fTt6TTtbEI'S. Affel' the assembly The RUSTOFI High School COCle of Honor Wag Written, printed gn Wallet-gized C3fd5, and 3 Copy was given tc? leivery student. At this time he was given the opportunity to pledge himself to full cooperation with the Council in carrying out the Code o onor. Collecting clothing for needy children of the mountains of Tennessee and Kentucky, sponsored by Save the Children Foundation, was a proiect the Student Council participated in at the end of the year. Student Council Election, held the latter part of April, was the last proiect of the year. The winner was the "Peanuts" ticket, headed by Joel Tellinghuisen. Much is expected of this capable group.

These familiar and welcome tags were bright spots to bewildered freshmen the 'first week in September. 76 As a student of RHS, I, mm, in order to improve the qualities of my personal life and those of my school, will endeavor: 1. To establish a character built upon honesty, intelligence, and dependability. 2. To show respect for my teachers and fellow students, and myself. 3. To do my part in taking care of school property and showing respect for the belongings of others. 4. To conduct myself in a proper manner in the everyday life of my school as well as at its social and athletic events. 5. To build lasting friendships by practicing unselfish- ness and loyalty. 6. To show Christian principles in the many phases of my school life, as well as in my family life. This wallet-size card was presented to each student in school.

"WWM1wwm,,mww.'x:e!s1GaeuMm,:WTT..QLix:JwNffS 1960 DISTRICT 2-AA CHAMPIONS For the first time in five years the Bearcat Tracksters went to a state meet and were defeated. Nevertheless, the 'Cats made a very fine show- ing throughout the season. ln the Byrd Relays the Bearcats placed third behind powerful Byrd and Sulfur, both AAA teams. Following that they entered the Northwestern Relays and walked off with top honors. Then in their own backyard at James Field the 'Cats took first place in the Ruston Invitational track rneet. These boys worked hard beginning in September running cross-country to get in shape for the track season. They shaped themselves into a team that any school would be proud to call its own. In the District 2-AA track meet, held at Louisiana Tech stadium, the Bearcats took first place, gaining the opportunity to attend State at Baton Rouge. The track team, Pepettes, and Band journeyed southward to the track meet. Though disappointed at losing the crown, we were proud of the Bearcats, especially the Mile Relay team. Better Luck to the 'Cats of 1961. Edwin Davis is undoubtedly one of the best quarter men to ever run on the Ruston High School track team. His per- severance and leadership in September was the force that shaped the track team we had in March, April, and May. Edwin holds the state Mi mile record with a 49.5 MILE RELAY TEAM Undefeated, composed of John Porter, Jim Frazier, Woody Chew, and Edwin Davis. This team took first in every track meet it entered. It beat AAA state cham- pion, Byrd's team the first time in many years. Allen Carpenter, a iunior that did more than his share this season, and is on his way to being one of the finest if not the finest hurdler in the state. In district 2-AA he took first in both the low and high hurdles. He has the making of a very fine trackster. .sl 5 in 'SM , w w is '- : , W V 'lie 6 W K Ki .

The Techster has maintained his "B" average since leaving high school but finds it is a hard job. "When l was in high school, I made good grades without doing too much studying, but when a person gets to college, he has to study continually in order to keep up his grade." Budget Time Dave's advice to incoming fresh- men is to "learn how to budget your time, don't take on too many coming to Tech not to join any clubs or organizations except church until his sophomore year. "1 feel by then I will have gotten used to the change, and I'll be more established." Sang in Choir While attending Passaic High School, Dave participated in the choir for three years, was on the football team, track team, and baseball team tor two years. l-lc was also on the annual statt. "Do not expect your teachers in college to treat you as an individ- ual. When you are hearing a lec- ture, you are expected to get it then and there and not as in high school, when the teacher went slow enough for you to get every word," commented the freshman, Spencer.

A freshman ensemble, composed of 18 students, presented "O God Creator Blest," after which Betty Madden gave a brief history and the purposes of the nation-Wide or- ganization.
