In September 1954, The American Statesman started a column called "Tri-High Scoop". A student from each high school wrote about the happenings at their school and then it was published in the Sunday paper. Each school had a "catchy" name, Austin was Maroon Musings, McCallum was 'Callum Clues and Travis was Travis Drawl. Enjoy reading about the days when you were at Travis.

Tri-High-School-4
Travis Drawl
By Carol Cotman
December 15, 1957

No "rah, rah, rah, yea team fight" were yelled, but the words "rah, rah, rah, yea foods class" were certainly going through the minds of Travis' cheerleaders when they were presented with a luncheon by the students of Mrs. Carmen Ferris' foods class.

The girls comprising this class are Janet Sawhill, Donita Palmer, Shirley Franks, Basilia Ysla, Barbara Allman, Alice Ann Becker, Margaret Burt, Rose Fowler, Evangeline Gonzales, Ann Gopffarth, Beth Gopffarth, Nancy Gutierrez, Mary Krzywonski and Ellen Lindemann. Occupying the seat of honor along with the cheerleaders was Mrs. Bernard Forster, sponsor.

Jimmy Price, Billy Green, Bob Chandler, Frank Limon and Johnny Polvado experienced a change of identity when they were transformed into various personalities by Ray Dixon, makeup artist. This "transformation" took place at one of the most interesting assemblies of the year last Monday.

Also on the agenda of assemblies last week was one given by George Baker, who discussed atoms, their importance and their uses.

Fenner Myers and his B-team basketball squad showed their skill to all of Austin as they scored their first victory over the Concordia B-team Tuesday night. Also scoring their first victory of the season was the varsity basketball squad, which downed the Concordia varsity squad. Delbert Davis is the proud coach of these Rebels.

The Travis A Cappella Choir had a busy week representing the "land o' cotton". Monday night the choir participated in the annual community Christmas carol program at the City Coliseum. Thursday morning, a performance for the Travis County Council of Women at Calcasieu Auditorium was the order of the day. Miss Frances Aldridge, who has been visiting the choir, was also on the program. Director of the choir is Miss Josie Champion.

After many hours of practice, with hope in their hearts, and starting to have a little "stage fright", fifteen members of the Rebel Band left Saturday morning for San Antonio to try their luck and talent at the All-District Band tryouts. Accompanied by John Montgomery, the students were Mary Ann Stromberg, Jimmy Whorton, Dorothy Martin, Gene Rhemann, Jimmy Jackson, Patsy Drury, John Thomson, Earl Beaty, Don Beaty, Tommy Proffitt, Billy Stewart, Mack May and Bryan Adair.
