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,
over for his

placement. Shows traveled
touchdown, following a patterned swarm
two tackles on him, who

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.
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
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.
With winter's crisp

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.
In the spring thoughts turn to Pelican
Boys' and Girls' State, Junior Leadership
Conference, and becoming Seniors.

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
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
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.

designed by Michaela Wells.
These familiar and welcome tags were bright spots
to bewildered freshmen the 'first week in September.
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,
2. To show respect for my teachers and fellow students,
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.

1960 DISTRICT 2-AA
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
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
