JL DOSS HEADS
Dearing, Curry and
Stanley Also Elected
In an election by the student
body, Hyle Dos,s was elected pres-
ident of the Student Council for
this year. Serving on the council
with him is Walker Dearing, vice
president; Joyne Curry, secretary,
and treasurer, and Edwin Stan-
Following a program by the
Civic Clubs, Mr. Davis asked the
students if they desired a council
this year. MLss Campbell explain-
ed the council that has been in
effect for two years. Following
this explanation, the students
choose their council members. The
first business to eome before the
student association was the advis-
ability of publishing art annual
this year. Over 100 students indi-
cated their willingness to support
a year book. If 150 students pay
a deposit within two weeks a
staff will be chosen.
The Seminole Warriors have
proven themselves to be the hard
fighting, hitting, strong hearted,
braves, Seminole loves. And there
isn't a person in our city who
isn't supporting them.
If you didn't see the game Fri-
day afternoon between Seminole
and Denver City you missed the
best game played at Seminole for
many years. All the boys were in
good condition, thanks to Coach
Jones and Assistant Coach Hay-
burst. The boys have football
hearts and if you have ever play-
ed football you know what it
means. They were real sports, all
of them .
The Denver City eleven played
hard, but the Indians were play-
ing to win. The Rotary Club and
the Lions Club did their part for
the boys by giving Walker Dear-
a gold football for being elect-
the outstanding player of the
game. Harold Trammel won a
dollar for making the last tackle.
All the boys were given a milk-
The Pep Squad supported them
excellently. The sun was warm
but the game was so interesting
that it was forgotten. The band
also added to the program with
some fast pieces.
We want to thank the Seminole
citizens for their support and in-
terest. We are glad to say that j
we have a team well worth our
This Friday we go over to
Stanton to beat them. We will j
expect a large attendance.

JUNIORS ELECT OFFICERS
The Junior Class had its first
class meeting Wednesday, Sep-
tember 18, under the skillful gui
dance of Walker Dearing, our
most beloved sophomore presi-
dent. After dutifully helping us
elect another president he turned
over his honorary office to Delton
Curtis, who quickly brought his
brilliant executive ability into
play and proceeded with the bus-
iness of the day. This business, of
course, was the election of off:-
cers and sponsors. We made Dru-
scilla Curry, vice president, Jack
Warneke, secretary and treasurer,
and Donna McLaren, reporter.
Coach Jones and Mr. R. R Davis
has the honor of being our re-
spective sponsors. We are proud
of our class, so we are going to
send Lurlyne Claybough and Bil-
ly Curtis as representatives to the
Student Council. Margaret Bow-
en, Jerry Davis, Walker Dearing,
and Harold Trammel make up
our entertainment committee. I
think every one will unanimously
agree that the Junior class is off
for a successful year.
SOPHOMORE CLASS MEETING
A sophomore class meeting
was held Thursday afternoon,
September 19th for the purpose
of electing class officers.
The sponsors that were elected
are Miss Goodall and Mr. Hay-
hurst. Mary Barrier was elected
president, the other officers are:
Perry Bowen, vice president; sec-
retary and treasurer, Mary Mo-
loney; class reporter, Charles Pip-
pen; Nola Mae Maloy, and Mary
Ola Batton, program committee.
CIVIC CLUBS VISIT SCHOOL
The Lions' and Rotar Clubs ar?
exhibiting great interest in the
school system this year.
The Lions Club entertained
the high school students and tea-
chers Tuesday morning in the au -
ditorium. Mr. Nemir, the presi-
dent of the Lions Club, said the
students making the highest six
weeks' average would be a guest
of the Lions Club week luncheon
And also the girl or boy making
the highest yearly average would
receive a medal.
The following Tuesday morn-
ing A. L. Duff, Jr., president of
top Rotary Club. Mr. A. F. Ne-
rr.ir, president of the Lions Club
and Mr. Shiflett met with the
students to award the outsanding

The representative from the

Monday and Tuesday, taking the

The band will probably not go
to Stanton Friday, because the
majority of them haven't learned
to play and march at the same
time. However, it's possible that
they could surprise you like they
did last Friday, but not probable,
as they have to learn two march-
es completely by heai't before
then. Mr. Riley expects to have
them in shape for all the games
The majority of the band mem-

Several pupils in grammar
school are taking band who will
not be in the band proper ful-

Mr. Riley expects to have, as a
j result of his 'music aptitude test,'
'about 100 students taking band

good chance to have a 75-piece
band by next year. If the school

SENIORS GET CLASS RINGS
The Seniors of '41 selected theii
class rings, invitations, caps and
gowns Thrusday, Sept. 19.
Most of the boys of the class
bought rings with an Indian head
crest, after much discussion. Al-
though the girls picked rings
somewhat different from those of
the boys, they are very pretty as
Mr. Troy Price, the representa-
tive for the Star Engraving Com-
pany, of Houston, Texas, measur-
ed and helped the students sel-
ect their yarious designs.
The rings should be here in a-
bout a month, if the plans work
out. • - 1
The Senior caps and gowns will
be black and gold, unlike those of
the past. The gowns last year
were gray, but the seniors voted
to have the color of the school
The invitations and caps and
gowns will arrive in the spring.
