Bill Haynes, III
Future plans of Bill Haynes, III, one of this year’s graduates from Perry high school, are dependent largely on demands of the national selective service.
Provided he doesn’t enter the armed forces, Haynes will continue as a student at Oklahoma A. and M. where he enrolled May 6. Born 18 years ago at Lindsey, Bill is the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Haynes, formerly of Perry, but now of Stillwater.
He has lived in this city for the past three years and has been a member of the PHS band most of that time. Also a Demolay, Haynes has taken an active part in school activities. He attended Stillwater high school for a short time, but “liked Perry high school so well” he cam back to finish here.
