La Reata, the Spanish word
for rope or lasso, is the name
of our yearbook because it
acts to tie together or unite
all the wonderful things that
have happened during the
high school years. It holds in
its loop the many failures
and successes, but most of all
the skill of learning to work
Our musical theme will re-
mind us of the thrill of our
school song, the beauty of
our Christmas programs, the
joy of singing together.
The La Reata staff has
worked hard to bring you a
yearbook that you might re-
member for many years to
come. We hope you will en-
joy seeing and reading it,
as we have enjoyed putting

The musical theme of the 1954 La Reata
brings to the minds of all of us a man Who,
through his patient and able leadership, has
given to Albuquerque High School a fine band
and orchestra and has done much to strengthen
the unity of the school through the music de-
partment. The La Reata staff and student body
take this way to express its thanks to Carl
Cramer for his Willing participation in school
activities by dedicating to him this, our La Reata.

achieved much during the school year. In the
Fall, the Junior Class Play was produced. Later

the Cantata presented at Christmas time. Many
Juniors have distinguished themselves in jour-
nalistic and gridiron activities. The class has
elected for its officers three deserving studentsg
Billy Mann, Presidentg Neva Jo Weese, Vice-Pre-

The Bulldog-Hornet game, Junior-Senior prom,
Senior week - how the year of the graduating class
of 1954 flew. We no sooner had our class officers
elected, when it was time to elect our Bulldog Day
court. Donna Standfier, Jay Twilley and Jo Hankins
were the lucky three. They had a full and exciting day.
The 1954 journalis-
tic work was directed
by other members of
our Senior class. Edit-
ing the Record were
Harry P. Moskos, Mar-
tha Mersman and Carol
Kutnewsky. La Reata
was edited by Carolyn
Maciel and Betty Anne
Rose. The Yucca editor
was Allan Vermillion.

This page is dedicated to the memory of Miss Sara Goddard, a teacher who served
many years at Albuquerque High School. Miss Goddard passed away on January 8, 1954

Miss Goddard began her teaching at Albuquerque High in 1924. She taught various
subjects beginning with commercial courses. In her many years of service she taught
French, Economics, Southwest History, Archaeology, Naval History Cduring the period
of World War ID and had overflowing World History classes. She sponsored many ac-
tivities: the Debating Society, Commercial Club, French Club, Archaeology Society,
Flower Fund, and was at one time Faculty Secretary.
Miss Goddard was very interested in local history which included Indian ruins. She
and some of her students found an old ruin called Tunque between Alameda and Santa
Fe. The cost of the ruin is not known, but to Albuquerque High and Miss Goddard it
It is through the quiet, efficient work of people like Miss Goddard that future gen-
erations are well trained. A great teacher has left the classroom.

The Record, the Albuquerque
High School paper, records the
past, present and future in the
news of the school. It had its birth
in 1919, and was the first attempt
in journalism since 1902 when
"The Accidentn was published.
The staff under the supervision
of Dr. Winfred Buskirk, consists of
three co-editors, a business man-
ager, sports writer, a photogra-
pher, reporters, and the typists.
Among their social activities they
enjoy an annual press banquet, and
a two-day press convention in Las
Vegas, New Mexico.
Shown at the right is Eve Tom-
linson reading a selection to the
Yucca staff. These stories, poems,
and articles for the magazine are
contributed by the literary mem-
bers of our student body and vary
from the dramatic to light fiction.
The art staff, led by Buster Quist
and Lee Daily, have added the ex-
pressive touch necessary to turning
out a good book. Sponsors, Mr.
James Lacour and Mr. F. E. Gra-
ham, can be proud of the Yucca
staff and its publication, as they
have contributed much towards
the literary output of our school.
In the picture at the left are the
staff members. They are, seated, Alan
Vermillion, Mr. Lacour, Harvey Jean
Peterson, Sofia Chmura.
Standing, Jerry Ginsburg, Eve Tom-
linson, Martha Lamer, Judy Burke,
Theresa Vigil, and Jim Nicks.
During the year staff members
work hard to produce a fine magazine.
The Yucca magazine is given out
twice a year to those students who
have Co-ops. The staff meets after
school and sixth period, during which
they get the book in order.
Shown above are Alan Vermillion
and Harvey Jean Peterson, editors of
the Yucca. They are primarily respon-
sible for the final out come Of the
Shown at the left are the three girls who
are the most responsible for the existence
of the yearbook. They were chosen because
of their ability to hold such important posi-
tions. Here are Betty Ann Rose, Associate
Editor, Caroline Maciel, Editor, and Elnora
Bowers, Assistant Editor.
"Look at Bell's big red
nose." Each year the man be-
hind the camera uses this
pass word before the picture

Albuquerque High taking

other school activities. Bell
has been taking pictures for
the school for three years
and is looking forward to
taking them in the future.

Since 1909 the yearbook stall has been turn-
ing out the annual La Reata. True, the publishing
of our annual is almost as old as the school, but
as we thumb through the issues of by-gone years,
we can see the way school life was compared to
that of today. The La Reata is a treasure chest of
memories, held dear by all who have at one time
or another attended AHS.
The work involved in turning out the La Reata
starts right after the beginning of school. The
staff consists of all sophomores, juniors, and sen-
iors interested in the publishing of a yearbook.
The editors and co-editors are picked in the
spring, and serve in the positions the following
school year. The stall' is divided into three sec-
tions, 6th period, 7th period, and the group which
works after school.
Let us look at the book and see just what is
done 'in the production of it. First of all the
photographer and engraver are chosen. After this
a suitable cover is picked. Then the real work
begins. Page plans are drawn, pictures scheduled
and taken, copy is written, pages are assembled,
and sent to be printed. The book is at last com-
pleted and covers are pasted on. The La Reata is Mr. Thomas
then ready for distribution to the student body. Mr. Thomas, shown above, has the great responsibility
of being sponsor of the La Reata. He has been doing his best
for three years in seeing that the student body has an annual
to suit its needs.

The Junior Talent Show was presented over KOAT-
TV on Saint Valentine's Day. President Bill Mann, Vice-
Prcsident Neva Jo Weese, and Secretary Sue Coleman,
officers of the Junior Class, introduced the talent by
reading a valentine to the performers. The program in-
cluded several dances: Poodle Hop, Dying Swan, and
The Continental. Our Junior musicians formed a dance
band and played, "In The Mood." Lorraine Wilden sang,
"Sweetheart, Sweetheart," and Bunny McCain sang, "Dia-
mond Are A Girl's Best Friend." The program was spon-
sored by three Albuquerque High School teachers, Ann
Komadina, Josephine Napolene, and Ed Garvanian.
Pictured at the right is Coach Garvanian with Lil-
lian Velasquez, who is about to be introduced by the
three officers pictured at the left.
KANW, directed by Mrs. Rose J. Jones, and Mr. W.
B. Maxson, broadcasts an average of four hours a day
throughout the school year. The programs presented this
year included Indian programs, Social Science, Safety,
Science, Phonics, Health, Music, and Penmanship. These
programs are produced with the assistance of supervis-
ors, teachers from various school, students from the high
school, and other educational stations throughout the
nation. They are both educational and entertaining.
KANW trains student engineers for radio station work
in the future.

The drill squad, led by Gwenn Crowe and sponsored
by Mrs. Virginia Sacks, has done a wonderful job this
year. Their various half-time activities, during the foot-
ball season have not only added interest to the games
but also given that needed school spirit. They have prac-
ticed daily to improve their precision in formations.
People going by the corner of Grand and Edith have
had the opportunity to see our lassies rehearsing their
routines for the week. The yard by our Annex has been
the best place for their rehearsals. Their talents have
not been connned to Albuquerque High School activities
alone. The girls traveled to Farmington to give a stellar
performance for the fans there. In their two piece cord-
uroy uniforms of green and white, the 116 girls enliven-
ed the annual state fair and Christmas parades. Elected
to be the leader for next year was Linnette Williams, who
then will be a senior. It will be her responsibility to give
the school another successful drill squad.

is both a friend and counselor to the many girls of AHS.
She keeps the records for girls' absences and always
offers guidance to those who come to her. Mr. Brown,
besides being counselor to the boys, is Director of Stu-
dent Aflairs and advisor for many extra-curricular activi-
ties. Mr. Willits is in charge of helping students get jobs.
He guides them in applying for positions and gives gen-
eral vocational work for all.

The counselor's aides pictured here are very valu-
able and necessary to keep things running smoothly in
the counseling offices. One of their most important jobs
is to direct new students to different classes and to help
them with their programs. They also run many errands
and deliver messages to the faculty and students. Their
biggest job is to aid in keeping track of all the students
in Albuquerque High School. We are very grateful to the
girls who relieve Mrs. Rogers and Mr. Brown from a lot
of their extra work.

The Albuquerque High School attendance aides are
composed of about thirteen girls who are mostly sopho-
mores and juniors. The requirements for attendance
aides are: a "C" average or above, and dependability.
If the girls don't keep their grades up to the require-
ments, they have to take a study hall. The duties of the
aides are: to help with the posting of absences, to collect
attendance slips, and to distribute slips to the home room
teachers. They also run errands and answer the phone.

FIRST DANCE OF THE YEAR
Our first dance of the year is the one best remembered.
The above dance, held at the Student Union Building came
after the game between the Bulldogs and Clovis High.
Registration day for the Sophomores will be an event
that they won't forget. In the above picture you see many
Sophomores talking with friends and having their program
cards signed by teachers for their classes.
An old familiar sight and an enjoyment to AHS students
is our patio which serves us for social and school chats or just
for relaxing between periods.

A STROLL THROUGH THE PATIO
What would the students of AHS do without
their patio? The patio is a common short cut to
our classes. These three girls are enjoying an
after school stroll to their lockers before leaving
another day of school. During the school hours
you can always see the students rushing to their
classes but when the time comes to leave school
they slow down to catch their breath.
Old faithfuls, are our lockers. Docsn't

Shown in this silhouette is Jean Mc-
Kelvey burdening down her locker. The
usual sight is a clatter and noisy rush-
ing through the hall. We find here in
this picture the scenic view of late
hours, when the halls have their time
These early birds aren't catching wormsg
they're catching up on hours. If you look hard
each morning you will find the cafeteria jammed
to capacity, with students to make up time. We
couldn't get them to smile for who wants to smile
this early in the morning with homework stacked
in front of you? For the students who like to
sleep late, it is wise not to be absent, or to cut
if you don't want to join the early session.
Look at these pom-poms. The girls in the
picture are waving their pom-poms at the High-
land-Albuquerque pep rally, held November 21.
Among those above are Nancy Borough, Yvonne
Herring, Nancy Twillinger, and Jeanne Vermill-
ion. This was one of the most eagerly awaited
games. A huge crowd saw the 6-6 tie. With the
green and white waving in the air, and the theme
"Beat Those Hornets", AHS was awarded victory
on penetrations after a hard fought game, which
ended our regular football season.

SENIOR CLASS ASSEMBLY
There was one Senior class assembly,
from which every class would have
benefited and enjoyed. This was the ap-
pearance of Jim Lucas, Scripts-How-
ard's outstanding war correspondent.
He did us the honor of including our
institution in his short visit in Albu-

SOPHOMORE TALENT ASSEMBLY
The Sophomore class put on a talent assembly spon-
sored by Mr. Lacour, Mr. Thomas, Miss Trammell, and Mr.
Hannah. There was a surprising amount of talent brought
forward from the Sophomore class. The assembly was pre-
sented to the student body, but was made up entirely of
Sophomore talent. Pictured at the left, is Betsy Bell doing
her personation of the Charleston.
BONFIRE PEP RALLY
One of the traditions of AHS is to hold a
bonfire before the main attraction of the football
season, the game between the Bulldogs and the
Highland Hornets. Some of the Hfirebugs' pic-
tured are Dale Gallaher, Beatrice Hay, Bob Stew-
art, Joe Schupla, Jim Major, Bill Schwabb, and
Don Zickert. That night of November 20th, be-
hind the Public School Stadium, gave the Bull-
dogs one joyous hour burning the Hornets.
Here are three main members of the
"Imaginary Invalid". Left to right, Jac-
quita Thomason, as the maid, Betty
Faris, as Angelineg and Robert Hanna,
The play was a delightful French
comedy with each cast member playing
a perfect part, holding the attention of
the audience at all times. It is a tradi-
tion for the Junior Play to be on the
lighter side of life. This one filled the
part and makes a gay memory for the
PEPPER CLUB INITIATION
The Pepper Club initiates are
Margaret Carnell, JoAnn Harris,
Amy Klassen, JoAnn Jewell, Mari-
lyn Bush, and Jean McKe1vey.
They all met in the patio where
they participated in such adult
games as the Farmer Takes a Wife
and Ring Around the Rosie.
Teachers, boy-friends, and the
girls were all relieved when their
lunch hour came and they could
change to their regular school
clothes. All had to admit they had
a swell time. Already looking like
a mess, the girls were given an
extra touch of makeup for the
ORDINARY DAY IN THE OFFICE
An ordinary day in Mr. Brown's office. Even with
the hurry of the day, AHS students find time to discuss
happenings with Mr. Brown.
Getting into the Christmas spirit is Miss Koma-
dina's class. Here they are playing records and deco-
ratiing a tree.
BUYING A TICKET
Here Betty Anne Rose is shown buying a ticket
from Jack Stromberg for the Highland-Albuquerque
High movie. This was a showing to the students of the
much discussed 6-6 tie between AHS and HHS this year.
BOY AND GIRL STATE ASSEMBLY
'Polling of his most unforgettable experience at
Boys' and Girls' State is Dick Wilson, master of cere-
monies. The students who attended were very eager to
discuss this worth while project.
This yearls Christmas Chorale was directed by Mr.
Goodsell Slocum. Accompanists for the Chorale were
Jack Foster and Joan Orlebeke. The Chorale had two
scenes. The first had a church window in the back ground
with the chorus dressed in robes. The second displayed
a candy cane in the background with girls in either red
or green skirts and sweaters and the boys with white
shirts and ties. The program had many tableaux dis-
played in Gothic windows in the forezround. Two hun-
dred students took part in this program, which proved
quite successful, for a large audience attended,

as "Pop" Reynolds. This class is taught to
anyone who is interested in this type of draw-

to be very interesting and also in many cases
very valuable to them when planning a career.
MR. BROWN'S BULLETIN BOARD
In the counselor's office posted along his walls are
pictured many memories. In Mr. Brown's spare time,
which he has very little of, he often reminisces over the
pictures of pupils to whom the faculty and students of
AHS have given high honors.
Many of these people will be remembered throughout
the years. Among these pictures are the past and present
cheerleaders, Bulldog Queens, and scenes from the past
LONG LOST FRIEND RETURNED
Back in our patio again is a memorial left by the
senior class of 1950. Our Bulldog which so suddenly dis-
appeared last spring has returned, to the joy of the faculty
and student body. The Bulldog, which stands high on its
pedestal near the Administration building, has proved to
be very near and dear to our hearts.

SO LONG TO A SWELL GUY
Captain Smart, the head of the R.O.T.C.
at AHS, has been here about five years. He
left in December of '54 to go to New York to
continue his training for school administra-
tion. He will be the principal of North Valley
High when the new school opens this fall.

GREEN AND WHITE BALL
The annual Green and White Ball was held Janu-
ary 22. 1954 in the Student Union Building at the Uni-
versity of New Mexico. Many Albuquerque High School
students and their dates danced to the music of Orlie
Waggener and his orchestra. The girls were presented
with a beautiful baby orchid as they arrived at the
door. The orchids were shipped direct from Hawaii
for the occasion.
DRAMATEEN'S COSTUME BALL
The annual Dramateen's costume ball was held in
the cafeteria this year. In the midst of crepe paper and
balloons, the members played games, danced, and had
refreshments. Lynn Kircher and Robert Hanna won the
prizes for having the best costumes.
BOOKROOM AND MRS. MONTOYA
The majority of Albuquerque High School
students are as yet not aware of the importance
of the bookroom. They are responsible for the
care of all our free, state supplied text books.
Their rush seasons are in September, January,
and May, but they are very busy all year.
One of the favorite locations during the
lunch hour is the north end of the Manual Arts
Building where Smitty brings his ice cream
wagon. He has been coming to our school for
many years and makes new friends every time.
He sells ice cream, assorted candies, and various
The Military Ball is a formal dance and
one of the most outstanding of the year. This
year the dance was held at the Student Union
Building at the University of New Mexico. The
girls were presented with baby orchids as they
entered the door. Decorations for the occasion
blended with music and the many dancing
couples to leave a lasting and pleasant im-
pression on all who attended.
ANNUAL PRESS BANQUET
Mr. Ream, Martha Mersman, Dr. Fenley,
and Caroline Maciel are pictured at the annual
Albuquerque High School Press Banquet held
at La Hacienda. Dr. Fenley, director of Public
Relations at the University, spoke about the
advantages of taking journalism and going
into newspaper or magazine work. Awards
were given to some La Reata members.
This year's presentation proved to be most amusing
as it involved a young man who, having died, went to
heaven and made a bet with St. Peter which went some-
thing like this.
He bet that if he could have another chance to go to
earth, he could win any women that he wished. He was
allowed to return and won the bet by winning the atten-
tion of all the women with whom he came in contact.
CROWNING OF MILITARY BALL QUEEN
Miss Gwen Crowe, a senior, was the Military Ball
Queen for 1954. She is shown here as her crown is pre-
sented by Keith Grisham, President of the O.N.C.0. Club.
Her attendants were Jean Bennett, a junior, and Sally
Cooper, a senior. The members of the AHS R.O.T.C. elect-
ed the three girls in a primary election about a week
before the dance and then cast their votes for top honors
as they entered the dance. After receiving her crown of
white carnations, Miss Crowe and her escort led the next

NEW STUDENT TO AHS
One of the many foreign students to attend AHS is Helga
Gisela Moldenhauer. She left Germany with her mother in
October of 1953. She first entered an American high school
in Morristown, New Jersey. She is a junior and likes New
Mexico very much.

Of all the activities that the senior class sponsored, the climax
was the Senior Talent Assembly. In this assembly the seniors really
showed the talent. The theme of the assembly was "Lullaby of Broad-
way." There were thirteen acts. A piano solo by Michael Silva, three
dances danced by Paddy Tarter, Libby Patan, and Donna Weatherbieg
seven songs sang by Charlene Love, Kay Gibson, Albert Sanchez,
Ginger Ortiz, Thelma Jackson, and Barbara Schumacherg a pantomine
by Norman Maisel, a dramatic interpretation by Marilyn Neuber, and
a "boogie" number by the band.
With her interpretation of the Makio, Marilyn had the audience
in complete suspense. The Makio was a different person in each as-
sembly. To keep the audience in stitches, Norman gave his very fine
performance of, "The Man On the Flying Trapeze." Kay's singing of
"Temptation" kept everyone in a dreamy mood. Charlene's song,
"Walking to Missouri," gave everyone a chance to sway to the music,
while the boogie played by the band made everyone want to get up,
push the chairs back, and let out with some crazy steps. To give Broad-
way a Spanish air, Albert Sanchez and foe imlaco sang and played
"Cuba Rumbaf' With night falling over Broadway, Barbara Schuma-
cher sang, "Secret Love", to close Llie Senior Talent Assembly of 1954.

OUR AHS BULLDOG'S PIGSKIN SUMMARY
The Albuquerque Bulldogs won the I-AA conference over Highland by
penetrations. The season was a rugged one from beginning to end.
ln the first game of the season, the Bulldogs rolled over Gallup with a
40-6 victory. Another hard fought victory was won when the Bulldogs beat
Clovis with a score of 19-0. The AHS winning streak was stopped when they
came up against hard fighting Artesia. Boan made our only touchdown and
the game ended Bulldogs 6, Artesia 20. The Bulldogs "never say die" spirit
showed as they lowered the boom on the Santa Fe Demons to take their first
AA Conference victory with a score of 52-12. The next game the Albuquer-
que Bulldogs took to the air to crush the St. Mary's Cougars 32-12. Bulldog
Day arrived bringing bad luck to the team when Carlsbad took the game
32-7. But again the Bulldogs came through with a 6-0 score against Las
Cruces when Boan received a hand-off from Buster Quist to make the only
touchdown of the game. The Bulldogs then received another defeat when
the Roswell Coyotes chalked up a 52-26 lead. The next game Buster Quist
took to the air to make three touchdown passes and make the final score

The Bulldogs were awarded the chance for the AA Conference football
championship when they downed Highland on the new penetration rule.
In the first quarter of the Conference title match
against Roswell, Quist and Boan maneuvered the ball
to the Roswell one-foot line where Quist sneaked over
the middle for our first touchdown. In the second quarter
AHS went 56 yards in 12 plays to Roswell's one-foot
stripe Quist again bulled through center for our second
touchdown. In the third quarter Stewart crashed over
for our third touchdown. Corley's kick was true and
AHS led 19-14. With minutes to play Jack Doran threw
a nine-yard pass to Kenneth Wright to win the State AA
Conference Football Championship for Roswell. This
was a thrilling game and the Bulldogs did a good job.
The football season was ended by a banquet held in
the Albuquerque High School cafeteria. The Bulldog
team, coaches, dads of the players, school officials, and
other guests were present. Coach Woody Clements, head
basketball coach of the University of New Mexico, gave
the address of the evening. .

STOP, ST. MARY'S
The Albuquerque Bulldogs turned loose a pair of swift halfbacks and
used a strong aerial display October 6, to crush the St. Mary's Cougars,
32-12, for the 20th time in 22 meetings.
Ralph Boan scooted for two touchdowns. Buster Quist, besides running
for one score, passed to Velma Corley for another. Joe Harris snatched a
loose ball for the final touchdown. It was a great day for the Bulldogs.

This much sought trophy was retained by
AHS after being awarded the game against
Highland on penetrations. The score was a
6-6 tie, but the head linesman gave AHS a
2-1 edge on penetrations.
BULLDOG HORNET GAME
The biggest game of the year was hard fought on a
muddy field at the Public School Stadium but the Bull-
dogs were awarded the IAA League crown on penetra-
Highland High made the first touchdown early in the
first quarter but their conversion was no good when Jack
Stromberg blocked the kick. It was not until the third
quarter that the Bulldogs came through. Buster Quist
jumped high in the air and passed 59 yards to Boan.
Despite Highland's strong defense, Boan erossedthe goal
line to give AHS its six points. Velma Corley's conver-
sion went wide and the score remained tied for the rest
of the game.
The penetration rule is new and is defined as coming
within 20 yards of the opponent's goal. The head lines-
man, Richard Van Fleet of Alamos, said the Bulldogs
had a 2-1 edge in penetrations.
