SENIOR CANES OF COLOR
Pictured to the right are Jo Ann Bass and Vicki
Brooks holding the two senior canes of colors. Every
Senior class since 1910 have added their colors 'to the
cane made of New Mexico cactus. In 1947 a new cane
was introduced, since the original could no longer ac-
commodate additional ribbons.
Wood, James Wood. Walter
The Seniors will always remember their class
Angel Street, in which Lynn Kircher portrayed one of
the leading roles. All the actors and actresses helped to
make the play live a long time in our memories of '56.
Irene Ortiz longingly trys on her graduation
cap to see how she will look on that memorable day
Pictured above is the long remembered Albu-
querque High Bulldog who keeps watch over the
patio and bolsters our school spirit.
MR. BROWN'S OFFICE
Mr. Brown's office is the place most likely to be re-
membered because it is one of the chief gathering places
for students to plan school dances, make decorations, or
just to get friendly advice.
The leadership of the Junior Class was in
the capable hands of this yearls Junior officers
and has achieved much during the school year.
In the fall, the Junior Class play was presented.
Later came the Junior Talent assembly and then
the Junior and Senior Prom.
The class has elected as its officers these
deserving students: Kurt Stromberg, presidentg
Joyce Neuber, vice-presidentg and Angie Lovato,
