Westerner Call To Loyalty

"Westerners, put on your chaps,

Buckle on your spurs,

Loosen up the reins of our old fighting Westerners.

Sportsmanship, then victory is the motto of our high,

Come along, you brave old Westerners, we will do or die.

We will gallop over all the sweeping prairie land,

We will fight for biack and gold, true Westerner brand.

Lubbock High in golden letters, we will glorify,

Come along, you brave old Westerners; we will do or die.”

Westerner Challenge (Fight Song)“Hail, hardy Westerners!

O’er the plains

Your challenge hurl!

Through loss or victory,

With our banner high,

All the while we go marching on,

We proudly sing our victory song.

Fight! Let the game start.

Fight! Boys with all your heart.

Fight! Westerners, fight.”

We often want to reminisce and look back at our younger years. I discovered an extremely interesting website the has almost every issue of The Westerner Newspaper from the 1930s to the current date. One Interesting section is 21 pages long from May of 1954,

The Westerner World (Lubbock, Tex.)
