Foreword . . .
Year by year, this annual becomes
more a tradition of Albuquerque
High School. And we on the staff
watch it grow and are proud that we
are a part of it. A decade hence per-
haps we shall come upon a copy of
the '39 La Reata and say, "Ah,
those were the good old days. Re-
member how we had to rush to get
it out." We hope that it has meant
and will mean as much to you as il
does to us.

To you, two of the hardest working X iq
members of our faculty, who have
patiently striven with us to put on
programs of outstanding excellence,
who have put in ceaseless effort to
bring us something a little more than
the sometimes dull routine of school
-the finer art, who have been more
than willing to fill in for an assembly
at the last minute, to you, Miss Mc-
Manus and Mr. Cramer, we dedi-
cate this Music Edition of La Reata.
MR CRAMER MISS McMANUS
"Introduction . . .
Seniors, this is your book. Mere
worcls and a few pictures cannot pos-
sibly portray actual events. But lin-
ger for a little while over these pages
following and see if they clon't re-
call the fun and good times you have
had. lf you can relive those thrilling
football and basketball games, the
track meets, the numerous social ac-
tivities, then we can feel that our
time in preparing this has been well

Under the direction of three people, Mr. Milne, Mr. Ream, and Miss
Dixon, the administration runs smoothly. Mr. Milne, Superintendent of
Schools, because of his record of keeping up with current trends in modern
Education, has gained the respect of both students and townspeople. Mr.
Ream, our principal, has watched the school develop into the present metro-
politan institution. Miss Dixon has the tremendous task of keeping all the
credits straight. ln addition, she teaches a class of history and is the special
friend and adviser of the seniors.
Of the seventy members of our faculty, about one-half hold advanced
degrees, some are specialists in their field. This speaks for the scholastic
side of our teachers. Many, besides their regular work, find time to sponsor
extra-curricular activities: clubs, classes, publications, dramatics, musical pro-
ductions, and sports. Their advice and co-operation are appreciated by the
students. They are a part of our memories of happy school days.

ln the fall of I936 the Sophomore class which hoped to graduate in the
spring of I939 numbered about seven hundred distinct personalities. This
many leaders as well as a genuine class spirit.
The years I937-1938 found this group forging ahead with six hundred
class was outstanding in all fields of endeavor and early gave promise of LT'
members and their efforts in curricular as well as extra-curricular activities x
was very satisfactory.
It is not surprising, therefore, that the class of i938-l939 should be the
largest in A. H. S. to date, and the standards of this class are remarkably
That the class is a jolly, responsible, and grown-up group of people is
the opinion of the teachers.
This senior class is very rich in accomplishments. ln sports all the high-
letter men are seniors. There are twenty-one people on the Gold "A" list, the ,
largest ever recorded so far.
Members of the Senior committees were as follows: Eddie Apociaca,
Helen Bane, joe Harley, Jack May, and Pearl Freed on the Memorial Com- ,rf

BILL JOURDAN JOHN LOGAN LAURA JUNE BLOUNT
President Vice-President Secretary-Treasurer
zmiors . . .
The year l938-'39 had a slow beginning in a not highly contested elec-
tion of oHicers. Two athletic-minded boys and an All-American girl were cho-
sen: Bill Jourdan, President: John Logan, Vice-Presidentg and Laura June
Blount, Secretary-Treasurer. The tempo became faster after an excellent jun-
ior iassembly. This was followed by a colossal hit Cto use the Hollywood terml,
the junior play, "Big Hearted Herbert", with Sam Johnson in the title role
backed by an excellent leading and supporting cast. Miss Maloney did an ex-
cellent job of directing.
The juniors held offices creditably in the various clubs aand positions on
the publication staffs. Their scholastic records show that they are genuinely
interested in their studies.
However, studies alone would be fatal to such a vital group- They di-
verted their interests to athletics and the athletes, of which Jack Hitchens, Har-
old Murdock, Harold Smith, Dave Barela, Bill Otero, and Edward Gladden
were probaably the most outstanding.
As spring came, the mood became increasingly gayer, and the juniors
gave the birds fa compliment for the seniors and sophomores, a terrific strug-
gle in the operetta. A junior girl, Marion Wilson, was chosen queen of the Co-
op Club Spring Formal by non-partial judges. The finale saw the sponsors,
Miss Montoya and Mr. Harrington, and the officers planning one of the best
proms in the history of our school to make a true climax to a year of happy me-

DONALD KNODE STEFFEN JOHNSON RUTH ANN COLCLASURE
President Vice-President Secretary
Soplzomorw . . .
The Sophomores began their school year of l935-'39, we are sorry to
say, on the same day that the other high school classes started. They continued
on through the year fmore or lessl, successfully hurdled the mid-year exams
fhurdled is rightj, and ended the year with colors Cif anyl flying fwe hopef
The nickname of the class is "Pluto," because they are the under dogs.
However, everyone has to be a Sophomore, sooner or later- Even George
Crow, whose momentous decisions are the heaviest in school, was once a Soph.
Cheer up, Sophie, you may be fat and heavy and president of the Senior class
President: That big, good looking "Donny-H His mother, Mrs.. Knode,
calls him Donaldg but you can't hold that against him. ln fact you can't hold
anything against him fexcept, we are sorry to admit, he has big feetl.
Vice-President: just think of a V. P. called Stevie. This chap is vari-
ously known as "the Swede," "Steve," and "Busby," A vice-president is
supposed to be retiring and bashful, and our V. P. excells in these qualifications.
Secretary-Treasurer: We hunted a long time to find within our ranks one
with the attributes for this high position. Ruth Ann Colclasure was finally
chosen. And this is the way it was settled. Ruth Ann is secretary. lsn't
that a sweet name for a secretary? And Colclasure sounds like "cold cashier,"
so we made her treasurer.

A comparatively few boys, under the able leadership of Mr. Holcomb,
handle our immense amount of printing each year. They not only produced
the thousands of impressions that completed this La Reata, but receipts, pro-
grams, and letter heads in all the Albuquerque Schools. Mr. Holcomb, who
has been instructor in this department for three years, is greatly admired by all
with whom he is associated- He gives an excellent funclemental knowledge of
printing to his various groups of students, and each student merits the appre-
ciation of the school for the manual in which the lines of work are handled.

judging on the basis of the growth of our Honor Society, mankind grows
more brilliant year by year. Furthermore, this year the intelligentia proved
they are not the "stuffed shirts" which they have been so unfortunately dubbed.
For, the past two semesters have seen a very active honor group. This organ-
ization entered one of the best floats in the Homecoming parade. lt has spon-
sored candy sales. And on May 5 an assembly, one of the peppiest, was pre-
sented, consisting of a skit directed by Mrs. Mize and several others.
For the first time, too, officers were elected for the club. They were

. . . Sociefy
This year an infant took its first sleps- The infant was Student Govern-
ment. The Honor Society was among the chief supporters.
We should be proud of our honor students. They were the ones who set
a certain goal for themselves and had what it takes-the gumption, so to speak,
to work until they attained that standard. It wasn't an easy thing either: for
some unknown reason classmates are inclined to look down upon those who
are set up before them as examples.
Miss Stirrat took over the ship succeeding Miss Anderman and has shown

lf the Honor Society is the cream of the crop, then the Gold "A's" are
the mosta of the besta fwith apologies to the Old Maestrol. And, if you
glance down the list, you will find not bookworms, but some of the most active
personages of the schoolg publications, athletic organizations, clubs, music,
et al., are represented.
Few of us realize what a Gold "A" means. lt means four long years of
working up to the apex which the Honor Society has set: to earn a position on
that society five out of six semesters. Thats only the beginning. Then, if
those standards have been maintained for seven out of eight semesters,, one
is allowed to keep an everlasting emblem of struggle.
At the first, this select group was small but mighty. Today it is ever
growing mightier in strength and in size-still small enough to be a great
honor and yet room enough for rnore.

THE AL-BUQUERQUE HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA
Orfbeyfm . . .
Under the able direction of Mr. Cramer, the orchestra has progressed
rapidly. There were thirty-nine members, all of whom contributed to make
a fine orchestra. The orchestra is always an important factor during enter-
tainments such as the junior and Senior Plays, the Operetta, and the Christ-
mas Cantata. It also participates in assemblies both at A. H. S. and the two
junior high schools, and in the "Hour of Music Programs."
Every sixth period the orchestra meets in the band room with Mr. Cramer
The concert given together with the band and chorus groups in the spring
is the climax of the year for the members of the orchestra.
In Santa Fe when the orchestras and bands met from all over the state,
A. H- S.'s orchestra received the high rating of A-l. Much of the credit goes
to Mr. Cramer for all the hard work and time he puts in on the orchestra.

lzoms . . .
Albuquerque High School is fortunate in having Miss McManus to direct
the vocal portion of the high school music course. This year marked the second
appearance of the mixed chorus group. In addition there were two chorus class-
es of girls and one of boys. Every year the combined choruses present the
Christmas cantata and the spring operetta. Individual groups, such as the
A Capella choir, the girls' and boys' quartets, and the double quartet, appear
in assembly programs and smaller productions.
Another new feature this year is the monthly "Hour of Music" programs
presented in the High School Auditorium. The music, groups and individuals
were various, entertaining, and contributed some really fine music.
Miss McManus attempted to make the chorus program more interesting
and engrossing by asking the pupils to do outside reading and to listen to some
of the better music progams over the radio.
Step by step the music course has become finer and more varied. Who
knows but what real music skill is getting its best start in Albuquerque High

The Band took part in the "Hour of Music" programs and gave a concert.
At the Award Assembly, to' the twenty per cent that contribute the most
to the success of the organization, Mr. Cramer awarded letters.
The Band uniforms are green capes with white trousers and green caps,
and when in formation, clue to their immaculate appearance, the Band receives
praise and admiration from its spectators.
Mr. Cramer stated that the Band this year was equal to any of previous
years, and we know that the Albuquerque High School Band of previous years
always has been the best supervised and best-known band in New Mexico.

THE CHRISTMAS CANTATA
Canmm . . .
The annual Christmas Cantata, "The Adoration" by George B. Nevin,
was presented this year with both the girls' and boys' choruses taking part.
Special hymns were sung by different persons and small groups, and the A
Capella Choir blended itself in beautifully to the holy spirit of Christmas. The
entire chorus was dressed in red cassiclcs and surplices. The stage was decor-
ated with lighted trees and holly wreaths. At various intervals tableaus were
presented portraying famous scenes known to all. This took place in an il-
luminated arch representing a portion of a rose window.
Let us hope that the Cantata to come will uphold the annual tradition of
bringing peace and good will to those who see them. To Miss McManus we
extend our congratulations for her fine work this year.

Senior Play . . .
On April 27 and 28 the Seniors of our high school presented their annual
play. This year it was "Remote Control," a mystery story. The play opens
in a broadcasting studio, with Announcer Walter Fairchild fBob Clark, an-
nouncing that the "Ghost Gang" had robbed another bank and had made a
complete getaway. With this announcement, as with all others, he is ably as-
sisted by Helen Wright flVlargaret Lou Millerl, who is his secretary and fiancee.
A few moments later Charlie Steele fBob Linderfeltl, who gives us the im-
pression of a dashing young man, rushes in with six debutantes who are to
broadcast a special number. They are waiting for Doctor Wurtman QA. F-
Gonzalesl, who played the part of a spiritualist very well, to finish broadcast-
ing. All of a sudden the "Ghost Gang," rushes in and robs all the dubutantes.
The rest of the play carries on with many of the cast finding out who is in
the "Ghost Gang," and who killed Doctor Wurtman.
We congratulate the cast on their splendid success, and also the stage crew
for their hard work. To Miss Maloney we are grateful for her work this year.

The stage crew must be given credit for the excellent way in which they
handle the stage work. Their work is one of the most important in the staging
of productions. They build the appropriate settings, adjust the curtains, and
tend to the different lighting effects. This year the group was composed of:
Fred Simmons, Dan Morgan, Ellsworth Hogan, and Harold Koch. These
boys spent much time in the stage work for the school plays, assemblies, and
other outside dramatics that were presented on the high school stage- Enough
praise cannot be given to this group who have worked for the bettering of school

The seven people pictured above have pio ered a Held new to the high
schools of the United States
High school broadcasting is being done in a few places in the country,
principally to equip the youth of today to conduct themselves with poise and
confidence in this highly scientific era.
The advent of commercial radio communication has opened a tremen-
dously interesting vocation to those equipped to enter its exclusive ranks.
Namely: radio announcing.
Announcers must have complete poise and confidence, a pleasing radio
voice, quick wit, and a general knowledge of music and dramatics.
The Albuquerque High School Radio Announcers of l938-39 have had
experience in arrangement, directing, continuity writing, script writing, and
above all, announcing radio broadcasts.
The object of the A. H. S. Hour has been to present to the radio public
an accurate interpretation of the high school curriculum.
This interpretation has fallen under three groups, namely: Classroom dis-
cussions, music, and dramatics.
The announcing staff of A. l-l. S. fabovel consists of: Tom McCroden,
Louis Laney, Mrs. Rose Jeanne Dennis-Carlisle Csponsorl, Bob Clark, Ralph
Elsner, Joe Harley, and Lawrence Williams.

With Willa D. Bell and Mary Ellen Koch, consuls, setting the pace and
with a new objective, the Latin Club had a very busy season. For the group
and the Latin classes are working toward making a very attractive and inter-
esting museum- Already there is a nice collection of genuine Roman antique
vases, tear bottles, jewelry, and articles made by the studentsg but this is an
ambitious bunch. They sponsored a dance, candy sales, and a special ad-
mission party for the benefit of this museum. One of the members made
name pins out of copper wire bought by the club, and they were sold to stu-
dents. These proceeds were turned to that same end.
At the regular meetings, songs were sung in Latin, reports and Roman
plays were presented. At the first meeting, the slaves ffirst year students,
were auctioned off. The year's work was closed with the annual picnic.

library and learned all about how to run one and the details of the Dewey

touched on by a group of this type, were given.

One never would have thought that the farmers would unionize, but
evidently this organization is the proof. The Future Farmers of America is
comparatively new to Albuquerque, since this is only its second year here.
But it is a national organization.
ln this' club are studied the modern and best methods for agriculture,
stock raising, and for all topics on that line.
The boys elected the following to offices: Tom McDougall, presidentg
Clinton Calkins, vice-presiclentg Bill Bunten, secretary: and Chuck Baker,
To prove farmers can be socially inclined, the boys gave numerous
dances, hayrides, and barbecues. But their most important activities were
attending the Western Livestock Show at Denver, Colorado, and the F. F. A.
state convention at Las Cruces. At the latter, the group saw cattle judging
contests, shop contests, poultry judging, and surveying.

in the accomplishments of all of the aims of the organization, and she is an
integral part of the social affairs which are given through the year. Dances

people kept their offices for a second term, with the exception that Harold

movement. ln fact, it was a committee of Hi-Y members who brought Stu-
dent Government to the attention of lVlr. Ream this spring- We saw the cam-

THE WHOLE OF THE PEPPER CLUB
Pepper Club . . .
The Pepper Club is the largest girls' organization in A. H. S. Most
every girl, upon entering high school, wishes to join the club. One of the
main purposes of the organization is to give its members a good time. Among
the parties that are given throughout the year, the two outstanding enter-
tainments are the Christmas formal and the banquet and formal dance that
finishes the year's festivities. The candy sales that are held at various inter-
vals are always successful in every respect.
The Pepper drill is usually an important event during the football games.
Under the able direction of Miss Downer and Mrs. Hays, the girls have be-
come 'quite adept in their drill formation, and perform some intricate figures
in their drills. Their cheering section in the bleachers adds a great amount
of enthusiasm to the audible support of the games.
The officers of the Pepper Club have been most efficient in their direct-
ing of the year's activities- Catherine Park, presidentg Mary Powell, vice-
presidentg Carol Dixon, secretary and treasurer, have accomplished a great
deal in their leadership of the club. And the excellent co-operation given
them by the rest of the members has resulted in the Pepper Club having an
exceptionally successful year.
One of the most praiseworthy accomplishments of this organization is
"The Courtesy Patrol." This is a group of girls who take new girls under
their wing, help them to become acquainted with the school, and introduce
them into the heart of affairs in as much as they are able.

Archaeology Society . . .
This organization is appropriately situated in this country of ancient
Indian ruins and fascinating excavations. The main purpose of the club is
to help the students who are interested in this subject. Not only serious work
is accomplished, but a very great deal of fun is enjoyed as well. The neces-
sary held trips are instructive and interesting. Quite a number of relics have
been found in the ruins visited on these trips.
Miss Goddard, the sponsor, is well versed in all phases of the subject
of archaeology, and adds much to the benefit the members receive from this
organization. The officers also have been important in the welfare of the
Archaeology Club: Edward Dittert, president: Lou Ellen Graham, secretary:
Barbara Dunlap, treasurer.
Dances throughout the year, interspersed with profitable candy sales have
added to the social whirl of the school calendar, and the Archaeology Club
has been an important factor in the school.

This is the club in which our fair young ladies change their color and
show off their athletic prowess. This year the "Queen of the Amazons"
fotherwise known as the president, was Ruth Harrington: vice-president:
Annie Sue Rogersg secretary, Frances Vidalg and treasurer, Rachel Billings.
Their activities have been many, among which was a dance sponsored
along with the "A" Club in November. They had the customary candy sales,
hikes, and hayrides. Something a little new was a Play Night that was given for
the University girls in return for a Play Night to which the U. had invited the
G. A. A. At the time this went to press, the gals were planning an evening
exhibition for the general public, to be given in the auditorium.
Mrs- Hays and Miss Downer are most appropriate sponsors of the or-
ganization as the purpose of the group is to further interest in girls' sports.

The Student Government Class at Santa Fe, Bill Newlander, Chairman.
Simiem' Government . . .
Early this spring, about 50 representatives from the various high school
clubs met at the invitation of Mr. Ream to discuss establishing a student gov-
ernment, and elected a committee of five fRay Strong, Bill Newlander, Eddie
Apodaca, Catherine Park, and Marcia l..innD to condense their arguments into
a workable form and draw up a general outline of a practical plan. After sev-
tral conferences with Mr. Ream and Mr. Milne, another meeting was calledg
and, with a chairman elected to serve for two meetings, Mr. Tate as faculty
advisor, Ruth Ford as clerk, and committees on Rules and Procedure, Clubs
and Charters, etc., established a student government consisting of a minimum
of one, and a maximum of three representatives from each club, was success-
fully launched for the purpose of learning parliamentary procedures, getting
actual experience in self government, chartering clubs, and settling inter-club
disputes, and giving the students a means for concentrated demand for such
additions to the curriculum, new clubs, and improvements in school procedure
as they should deem necessary. Though a very new prdject, it bids fair to be-
come a very important one in A. l-l. S.

T. W. A. FLIGHT
726 Natz'0f2af Air Ybuti Projkff . . .
Albuquerque High School was the setting of a new book on aviation his-
tory in the United States. Here, Transcontinental and Western Air Lines, ln-
corporated, and Collier's initiated the National Air Youth Project. The invita-
tions to our high school students to participate in the masts Hight were issued
by jack Frye and Mr. Vale, president and educational director of T. W. A.,
The new municipal airport, one of the largest in the United States, was
used as a starting place for a trip around the city, lasting from fifteen to twenty
minutes. Captain Lawrence Trimble, a graduate of Albuquerque High School,
piloted the students.
At the airport and inside the new Douglas transport plane, used for the
rides, were representatives of the Associated Press, local newspapers and news-
reel cameramen. ln return for hours of posing and moving around for pictures,
the first Hight of twenty-one students saw their pictures in newspapers and other
periodicals all over the country-
As a result, the students have become more air-minded and much more
confident in air-transportation.
The students of Albuquerque High School wish to express their appre-
ciation to the sponsors who made this flight possible.
OTYICI OY YH! PRESIDENT
TWA extends a cordial invitation to every student of the
Albuquerque High School to become a guest for a fifteen
minute flight over the city.

COACHES RENFR , WI SO ,AND BRISCOE
Coaches . . .
Building men is a man sized job, and that is what our athletic directors do.
Raw, untrained youths enter their supervision, young men emerge. The years
of actual athletic competition are few, but character is permanent. Coaches who
build good character, though the teams win or lose, are good coaches. We are
indeed fortunate to have men of this type for our faculty.
Coach Wilson, a veteran of I6 years, has a fine record of wins, but even
more important than that, he is a man who has done something really construc-
tive. There is not a boy in high school who does not look up to, admire, and like
Assistant Coach Renfro, boys' advisor, knows boys and their problems. Al-
ways ready to help, Charlie Renfro is one of our best liked faculty members.
Bob Briscoe, a newcomer from U. N. M., steps out of his roll as study hall
manager to help Coaches Wilson and Renfro in their tasks. Under his manage-
ment a new and successful system of intramurals between clubs has given the
non-athletic students a chance to develop.
CHEERLEADERS SCHIFANI, GIANNINI, AND BRIGGS
Clfeerfemlers . . .
The cheerleaders are leaders in school activities whether they cheer or not.
Because they are elected managers of all school athletic contests and pep ral-
lies, they take on great responsibility. Cheerleaders should be popular, have a
pleasing personality, and must be able to control both themselves and a mass
of people. They must set an excellent example of good sportmanship, especial-
ly when both participants and observers flaunt them with criticism or issue forth
some lusty "boos"- This year honors for outstanding records for work go to
Rita Giannini, Billy Briggs, and Ted Schifani. Their ceaseless efforts and deter-
mination have made Albuquerque High School even more concious of the ever-
lasting necessity for good sportmanship.

DARROW GOES OVER AGAINST MENAUL
A 0-BULLDOGS-RATON-2 2
A green Bulldog team just couldn't give that scoring punch, and went
down fighting fruitlessly against a more experienced Tiger crew. Inaccurate
passes spelled out the tale of woe for the green and white, two being run over
seventy yards each for pay-offs. The game was played under lights at Raton,
always a jinx for a Wilson team, but there was no doubt in any Bulldog's mind
but what he had been playing a grade "A" team.
M 38-BULLDOCS-SANTA F E.-7
A game forecast as a toss-up baclcfired into a track meet when a revenge-
seeking Bulldog pack stomped on the Santa Fe High Demons. Johnson led
the pack with three touchdowns, with Darrow, Miller, and Hitchens dividing the
rest. ln spirit it was a different Bulldog from the one which had been so inglor-
iously defeated by Raton, and showed scoring power which carried it through
the rest of the season without loss to a New Mexico team.
A pass from Darrow to Lol-:en in the first quarter gave the Albuquerque
Bulldogs a hard-fought win over the Las Cruces Bulldogs at Cruces. Two de-

termined teams see-sawed back and forth on the field with much penalizing on
both sides, but Coach Apodaca's aerial defense had let just one score through
and that meant the game.
A holiday for Belen turned into a Roman Holiday for the Bulldogs, who
scored almost at will in a lop-sided encounter at Belen. The sporting town of
Belen declared a holiday to dedicate its new field, but weight and power told
against the Eagles. The Belen team, outweighed almost twenty pounds per
man, fought an extraordinarily clean game, involving only three penalties. The
Canines scored in the first two minutes and were never headed.
Coach Wilson's fighting Bulldogs overcame the Menaul jinx and ruined the
Panthers' chances for a city and possible state championship in an overwhelm-
ing victory. The Green and Whites played heads-up ball from the whistle to
the gun, with the scoring evenly divided. This score also kicked at the dope
bucket, the teams being rated even. The Panthers' lone score came in the sec-
ond quarter as the result of a surprise passing attack.

DARROW ABOUT TO SCORE IN ROSWELL GAME
Uncorking an aerial attack that the weak Las Vegas defense couldn't cope
with, the Bulldogs chalkecl up an impressive victory over a small Cardinal team.
Darrow, who figured in three of the pay-offs, sparked the Canines. Short, flat
passes over the center, together with wide holes in the Cardinal line, accounted
for the free scoring.
2 5--BULLDOGS-ROSWELL-I 4
A jubilant eleven knew they had been in a battle at the end of a brilliant
victory over the Roswell Coyotes- Again sparked by Barton Darrow, who ran
up all four Bulldog rallies, the Canines outplayed a team which held the strong
Austin Panthers to a 7-7 tie. ,Late in the fourth quarter, the Coyotes started a
futile attack, which struck twice with stunning rapidity, but the game was already
Too much Spitzer was the reason for the second Bulldog loss of the season.
The powerful back smashed through for two touchdowns himself, and paved
the way for the others. Austin started strong and had a safe lead at the half.
The Bulldogs came to life in the third quarter and scored, only to be again
smothered by the express-train attack of the Austin backs.

After a large homecoming bonfire, the Bulldogs set back ascrappy St.
Mary's team by seven points to annex the city championship. Mclntyre, Cougar
all-state quarterback, stole the show with his brilliant ball toting, but in spite
of the inspired playing, the High School eleven matched and bettered the fight-
ing Catholics to win the thrill packed encounter.
The locals met their Waterloo on Turkey Day in the torrid city of Mesa,
Arizona. The Wilsonites scored early and led the mighty jackrabbits until the
second half, when the heat slowed clown the sweating Canines. While the
Bulldogs outplayed the Meconites, still high in the Arizona state title race, Old
Sol turned the second half into a miserable defeat.
Thus the Bulldogs ended their season with .70 wins. They came out
second in the state race, Raton being the only state team to beat them. They
dominated the all-city team, placing Darrow, Miller, Rinehart, Loken, and john-
son. all of whom are seniors. Two made all-state-Darrow and Crow.

After dropping their first game to the alumni, 2 7-39, the Bulldogs showed
up well against a scrappy Los Lunas five, annexing the game 22-37. The lo-
cals then lost 24-26 to Grants at Grants' cracker-box gym, only to regain their
stride the next week-end, taking Forest 22-283 then traveling to Socorro for
a rough I8-23 win.
Opening the new year with a bang, the Bulldogs chewed up the inexperi-
enced Las Vegas Cardinals 27-l4, and rode the Floyd Broncos to the tune of
28-20, both games here. They kept in form, trouncing Gallup 22-8, and tak-
ing a fast game from Belen 34-23.

Lordsburg to take the later state champs 34-29. The Wilsonites then broke
a winning record with Mesa by losing to the Jackrabbits 28-3 l. The Bulldogs
came back strong in their own gym to snow under Portales, with Darrow and
Rico both hot. Ratin Tigers were next skinned 37-26, before starting on an-
other journey. The road jinx again struck. They bowed to Santa Fe, 29-33,
beat Las Vegas Normal 2 7-2 3, but were struck by the Tucumcari Rattlers 28- l 2.
Albuquerque High School made a strong bid for the city title by taking
Menaul 37-32 and setting down the fighting Catholics of St. Mary's 25-20,
with Clovis as a breather between Q26-177. On the next road trip the Bull-
dogs broke even, taking Roswell 35-30, only to be waxed by the men of Hobbs
32-l8. The regular season came to a disastrous end, with both St. Michael's
and Ft. Wingate taking home wins, the first 26-20, the second 46-34.

traditional tournament fight with the Indians, and this time it was Tony Wil-

Close games marked the Bulldogs way in this meet, the first was a three

final thriller, Lordsburg came in fast on the home stretch to nose out the Bull-
dogs 3S-35. A. H- S. dominated the all-state group, placing Darrow, Loken,

The Bulpups . . .
Behind our big green and white teams is a reason for their strength, and
that is sound teaching. The Bullpups are the grade school, from which the out-
standing pupils graduate to the first line Canines. They are the proving ground,
and give invaluable experience! to later stars.
On the gridiron, it was the Bullpups who took the daily drubbing in scrim-
mage- Games were played with Washington Junior High, Lincoln, Grants, ln-
dian Papooses, and others, but the chief 'pup purpose is to build Bulldogs.
On the gym floor, the Bullpups and Reserves showed up well. A prom-
ising team of Sophomores and Juniors seemed to insure a good crop of Bulldogs
in a year or two. The young Canines played often, usually in preliminaries, and
gained a thorough knowledge of Wilson tactics.

Albuquerque High tracksters again hung up the spikes after a windy sea-

took El Rito, showing promise in the dash and relay events. The next feature
on the program was the Invitational Relay Meet at which six records were shat-
tered, three by A. H. S. The Albuquerque Bulldogs then trounced the Albu-
querque Indians, 72-50, with Steve Johnson taking scoring honors.
The Green and Whiters took second in the district meet, with Menaul cop-
ping top honors. Barela, Chavez, Dunlap, Garcia, Johnson, Leierer, Loken,
Moser, Payne, and Rico qualified in the state meet, May 6, and A. H- S. was
given a dark horse chance, but the Hobbs oilers again came through to keep the

A. H. S. retains one trophy consistently, and that is in golf. This year it
was Gil Sanchez who came through to be crowned state prep golf champion-
The Bulldogs dominated the state meet, qualifying five of the eight who played
for the championship. At the quarter-final mark the only four left were Albu-

Sanchez, and Frank Springer, medalist with an Sl card, was beaten by Joe

The girls line up for a game of soccer.
Soccer . . .
Starting off the Girls Sport season you will see the fast and rough game of
Soccer. You may recognize the player by noticing if they have skinned shins,
bruised toes, or even broken ankles. This game produces a great deal of excit-
ment. By the name "Soccer" you would think that it was played by the fists,
but it is played entirely with the feet. Each player gets a new type of enjoyment
by playing in the game- Approximately l50 girls participate in the game of
Soccer--most of them attaining a high degree of skill before the six weeks period
is over. Some of the outstanding players who were in the game of Soccer were:
joy Leeper, Dorothy Martin, Roberta Whitmer, Annie Sue Rogers, Helen Truitt,
Emilou Barton, Annabelle Duran, Angie Barraras, Jane Clayton, Mary E. Hayes,
and Ollie Harrington.
The girls are in an active game of speedball.
Specdball . . . l
Closely following the end of the soccer season, we find the physical educa-
tion classes turning to a faster and even more exciting game- The new game of
speedball furnishes fun for everyone. Speedball is a combination of soccer,
basketball, and football. If you add the fast work of soccer, the passing df
basketball, and the touchdowns of football, you have a sport that is enjoyed,
by all of the girls' classes.
Speedball is an old American game which was originated in America
about twenty-five years ago. We find the girls playing speeclball out on the
Held during each gym period of the day, during the Speedball season.
Those found to be the best all around players were: Joy Leeper, Maxine
Stowe, Roberta Whitmer, Natalie Bernadet, 'Thelma Lewis, Sara Solis, Ruth
Harrington, Ruby Smith, Agnes Naranjo, and Natalie Luster.

of the team and led them to a victory over the more experienced players from

Tap Dancing . . .
Tap, slap, bang,-the sound of fifty feet, which are always moving in uni-
son, greets a visitor in the gym every afternoon from I to 2 o'clock, while the

presented to the school pupils in two assemblies. Everyone was surprised to
see what the tapping students had accomplished in such a short time. The tap

largest enrollment of all classes.
