Amarillo High School ' Amarillo, Texas
Edilor - BILLY MOUSER
With the opening of the
1964-65 school year, i
Sandies were greeted with something
The Home of the Golden
been given a face lifting.
The old slate stairs had been
terrazzo stairs, the Nixson building,
first high school
building in Amarillo, was
crumbling at the hand of
and cranes. Still there was some-
thing old among
the new surroundings, something
which the hands of
could not change. Sandie tradition
lived on in the newly
surroundings. Tradition is an im-
portant part of any school.
New schools strive to build it, old
to maintain it.
Tradition provides a link with the past
and a guide for the future.
It is fitting, then, that
we portray to the
reader Sandie Tradition in its
many forms. Sandie tradition is
other. lt has provided the
spark for the spirit of
high schools while growing stronger
through the years at
AHS. The Staff of the 1965 La Airosa
presents to you . . .
Sandielandfllich in Tradition.

A person becomes a teacher when he
has the ability to transmit knowledge. A
teacher becomes an educator when he
teaches another to teach himself. The
1965 La Airosa dedicatee is an educator
in the fullest sense of the word.

rion Schoen moved to Texas with her
parents at the age of six. She attended
North Texas State University and re-
ceived a BA and an MA in English from
Mrs. Schoen came to Amarillo High
School in 1937. For 15 years she served
as cheerleader sponsor. She was Ken Club
sponsor for two years and then became
senior class sponsor, a post she still fills.
But, listing her services to AHS is a
poor way to describe one who has com-
manded the love and respect of Sandies
for 27 fruitful years. With deepest hu-
mility and respect we dedicate to Mrs.
Marion Schoen the 1965 La Airosa, the

gift of knowledge and love she has given

Math Teachers Qing Old Song - New Tune
Neil Todd, junior, works a graphing problem on new chalkboards.
It is not easy to prepare a student for the
tasks that he will face in college and higher ed-
ucation. lt is especially difficult to teach the
various courses in the rapidly changing field
of mathematics. But at Amarillo High, students
are offered eight rnathematic courses taught by
a total of 10 instructors, three of which have
The courses available are Algebra 21-22, Alge-
bra 41-42, Fused Geometry 31-32, Math 21-22,
Math 40, Trigonometry 4-0, and Math Analysis
Although a student must have taken first year
algebra before enrolling in Algebra 41-42,' Alge-
bra 21-22 may be taken at any time.
Fused Geometry 31-32 is offered to anyone
having already completed Algebra 21-22. Trigo-
nometry and math analysis must be preceded by
two years of algebra and one of geometry.
With an average of at least 90 and a teacher's
recommendation, uaccelersw classes in alge-
bra and geometry may be taken. Students plan-
ning to enter the scientific and engineering fields
usually enter these courses.
Math 21-22 and Math 40 are offered to those
not planning to attend college. These courses are
designed to teach the basic fundamentals of
The basic goal of the Mathematics Depart-
ment is to increase participation because much
more math is being required in higher educa-
Steve Rutledge senior, accepts help from Mr. Teague on a problem in math analysis.
Sparks fly as another experiment is conducted in a chemistry class. Bobby Mays, senior, watches in the background
"So that's what's so funny," laughs Grover Barnes as he points out a
chemistry equation to Craig Corbin, senior.
With the coming of the "Space Age", science
has become one of the most popular courses of-
fered at AHS. It instills in the studentls mind a
greater knowledge of the world around him and
brings him closer to the wonders of nature.
Science courses are offered in biology, chem-
istry and physics.
Biology is the study of all living things. In-
cluded in its study are more specialized courses
in botany, zoology, physiology, ecology and
Chemistry is a study of the basic make-up of
matter. Through experiments and analyses the
students get a better knowledge of the com-
ponents of different organisms and what chang-
es take place in them.
Physics is the study of physical phenomena.
These are interpreted by theories and laws and
the use of math.
The head of the Science Department is C. A.
Campbell. His counterparts are Grover Barnes,
Mrs. Atlanta Kaye and M. L. Roach.
"This is your pilot speaking," says Mrs. Gibson as
she adjusts the master controls in the language lab
which serves all language classes.
'The purpose in teaching foreign languages
in high school is to promote communication
between students of different nationalities. The
people of other nationalities appreciate you
much more if you take the time and trouble to
learn their language, instead of expecting them
to try to understand what you are saying in
your own languagef, said Mrs. Mary Gibson,
teacher of first and second year Spanish.
Besides Miss Maria Donnell, who teaches
first, second, third and fourth year Latin, there
are four new language teachers at Amarillo
High this year-Mrs. Jane Stephens, who teach-
es first and second year Frenchg Mrs. Janet
Mueller, who teaches second year Lating Mrs.
Collen McKechnie, who teaches second, third,
and fourth year Spanishg and Mrs. Gibson.
Que?" questions junior Debbie Adams as she lis-
tens to a tape which will help improve her pronuncia-
t10Il Students listen to recordings that serve primarily
to perfect the speaking of a language.
French is one of the languages taught at Amarillo High. Bobby
Rogers, senior, writes a sentence on the board to illustrate a trans-
lation in Miss Stephens' class.
The geography and history of Mexico are studied in connectio..
with learning the Spanish language. Ben Ingham, junior, des-
ignates a,point on the map to the third year Spanish students
in Miss McKechnie's class.
Translating sentences on the board in Miss Marie Donnell's Latin class are Helen Booch,.Malcolm Lang, Ronnie Barnett, and
Lizabeth Lewis, all sophomores. 2I
Seniors Challenged bg Chaucer
The English Department, headed by Miss
Faye Dillingham, fights a never-ending battle
to keep Amarillo High School students in shape
for college English.
Mrs. Stella Matherly said, "live been a Sandie
for 30 years." Itis teachers like Mrs. Mather-
ly, Miss Dillingham, Mrs. Mary Conerly, Miss
Jeannie Bookout, and Mrs. Marian Shoen that
strive to make our English Department outstand-
English is required the first three years of
high school and the senior year one semester.
The senior requirement can be fulfilled with a
senior English course, English composition or
Seniors study English literature which includes
NMacbeth." Some college preparatory grammar
is studied if needed. The works of Chaucer,
Shakespeare, Eliot, Priestley and other famous
English writers are among the reading in senior
Juniors study American authors and their
lives. Students are required to write a research
paper on some author during the course. Cram-
mar and American literature are studied through-
out the year.
Silas Marner is required reading for sopho-
mores. Sophomore English is composed of gram-
mar, which is stressed more than junior and sen-
ior grammar, and both American and English
Writing on a theme in her English class is sophomore Janis Crofford.
Patricia Diggs muses over the wording in hers.
Junior scholars enjoying Mrs. Matherly's first period class are IL to RJ Cindy Finney, Judy Stephenson, Mike Marr, David Jackson,
Marilyn Bangsund, David Nimmo, Ricky Belcher and Mike Hudson.
Art Students Cop Area Awards
"Now if you'd only give me some paper and paint, I'd be glad to
begin," says senior Alvin Hiroms as Kenneth Hailey and Gary Nor-
man, juniors, work on projects.
Art is a means of expression in paints rather
than words. At Amarillo High School the art
program is varied enough to fit beginning stu-
dents as well as advanced artists.
Mrs. Mary Townsend, Art 11-12 teacher at
AHS for six years, teaches fundamentals of
lettering, posters, perspective, modern industrial
design and a study of' architecture.
Second year students taking Art 21-22 use
principles of lettering and posters in the study
of commercial art and its many tributaries.
Knowledge of advanced color theory is applied
in painting landscapes and still life. The climax
of the year is a creative arts unit allowing stu-
dents to advance their study.
Art 31-32 and 41-42 are presented in a less
formal manner than preceding art courses. Stu-
dents discover the finer points of commercial
and advertising art.
Contests and displays help fill the year with
much variety and also aid our community as
well as our school.
Mrs. Townsend shows Doug Vaughn, Ronnie Hill, and
Ted Zweig points in art class.
Talent is showing as senior Alvin Hiroms draws details into a sketch
he is doing in art.
Hisiorg Prepares For Future
"An aspect of this world that touches on every
person's life is history. 'Amarillo High School
helps prepare young people for the world by
furnishing numerous history courses," stated
John Ethridge, history teacher.
The purpose of history courses is to teach stu-
dents about the past and its application to the
Government 40 is designed to inform seniors
how our government works.
Sophomores are required to study world

Ethridge, Robert McAllister, R. N. Mullican,
Gus Hrncir, T. G. Hull, James Curtis, Miss Laura
Roberts, Warren Harper and Ann Janeway in-
struct world history courses.
Those who enlighten the junior class about
the history of our nation are Mullican, Miss
Janeway, Bill Hoffman, and Mrs. Margaret Joss-
erand. Mrs. Lela Crossett heads the history de-
partment in the city of Amarillo.
Seniors are required to take Government 40.
Miss Roberts and Warren Harper are the in-
History 41-42, a senior course in world his-
tory, is taught by Ethridge and Scott Cantine.
A course in Texas history is offered to inter-

she and Wanda Seifmond, HU sophomore, clean up after a
Sandra Smith, senior, has an expression of delight on her
face as she finishes a project in homemaking. Sewing is
one of the crafts, girls learn in this class.
Homemaking is not entirely a lab course and here much time is spent
in academic study of such subjects as child care and meal planning.
KL to Rl Sophomores Carolyn Beck, Carolyn Eubanks and Wanda Seif-
mond take notes during Foods 20.
"Keeping the home fires burning" is Pam Rails
back, senior, a foods student. A course in home
economics often proves invaluable in later life.
Home Economics Covers Many Fields
Today elective courses offered in home economics
draw on science, art, social studies, psychology and
mathematics. Instruction is made personal for stu-
dents by teaching them how to dress becomingly, eat
better, care for their homes and live happily with
It includes the study of personality growth, fam-
ily relationships, child growth and development, mon-
ey management, home management, home hygiene,
clothing, housing and care of the sick. Many boys,
as well as girls, enroll in courses to get help in solv-
ing their personal problems and in making them
better family members.
The courses offered in the foods division are Foods
10, dealing with breakfast and lunch, Foods 20,
which introduces the preparation of dinners, Foods
30, concerning nutrition and entertaining, and Foods
40, advanced techniques of cooking.
In the clothing field there are four divisions of

The Diversified Occupations and Distributive
Education Clubs are two of the most interesting
and successful activities offered at Sandieland.
The DO club was originated in 1946, with
its first sponsor being Robert Cevin. ln recent
years Oliver Diggs has taken over the sponsor-
ship of the organization and has turned it into
one of the most popular at Amarillo High. The
club is most appealing to those students who do
not plan to go to college and want to get a head
start and begin earning their living while still
in high school. Students in DO attend classes in
the morning and have an opportunity to work
in the afternoon. Patterned after most science
courses, the school provides the technical instruc-
tions for DO whereas industry works as the lab-
oratory where their job training is carried out.
The DE club, sponsored by Raymond Wilson,
is composed of students who go to school half
the day and work half the day. The only differ-
ence being that the DE students are trained in
retail, wholesale and service selling jobs. Their
motto is "To develop future leaders for market-
ing and distribution." To better carry out their
instruction DE students have a mock store in
the distributive education classroom where they
learn the fundamental techniques of selling and

for graduation except in the case of girls excused
from the course by a doctor. The majority of girls
obtain the three credits in their freshman, sopho-
more, and junior years. However, if a girl has missed
taking P.E. during one of these years, she may make
it up in her senior year.
Physical fitness tests are given to P.E. students
three times during the school year. The goal is for
each of them to have an average of fifty percentile
or more on the tests. These tests, which are graded
on a national basis include sit-ups, standing broad-
j ump, shuttle run, chin-ups, the 50-yard dash, softball
throw and the 600-yard run. Girls achieving 50 per-
centile receive a standard emblem while those making

Service Characterizes Senior Favorites
Dana ,luett is well known in Amarillo High as
the senior favorite. He has done much to de-
serve the honor. He has excelled in his positions
on football and baseball teams. He is a member
of the Student Council and Allied Youth. In his
junior year he was elected as class president
and he was runner-up for senior class president.
The friendly and sincere smile of Sylvia Car-
ter paid off as she was selected by her classmates
as favorite of the senior class.
Miss Carter has offered much service to the
school as a member of the Student Council and
Sandie Steppers. She also serves as an NDCC
sponsor and is a member of Allied Youth and
She was one of the three finalists for queen.
Athletes Chosen as Junior Favorites
Mike Marr seems always to come out on top
in anything he attempts. Maybe this is one of
the reasons Why he is junior favorite this year.
This makes a number two for Marr because his
classmates voted him favorite last year, also.
Marr excels in football as a defensive end. He
is a member of the basketball team and throws
the shot-put in track.
The score is love-six and Penny Byerly has
won again. Only this time it is junior favorite
and not a tennis match she has won. Miss Byerly
received this award from her classmates because
of the friendly spirit she has shown them. She is
a member of the tennis team, Student Council,
Allied Youth, and Future Teachers. She alsc
served her sophomore year as class secretary.

Sparkling eyes that smile hello and lips that
say the same are just two assets of Karen Loyd,
Miss Loyd is a member of Allied Youth, Fu-
ture Teachers and the Spanish Club. She was also
elected to the Student Council.
In her freshman year she was elected cheer-
leader at Fannin Junior High School.
"Well rounded in everything-he has the
nicest manners and just takes the cake for
friendliness," says one classmate of ,lim Jack-
son, sophomore favorite.
Jackson is an active member of the Sandie
football team and he also participates in track.
Mr. and Miss AHS Selected for Service
Kicking a 47 yard field goal-the longest in
Texas high school history-can certainly be
classified as a great service to the school. Thus,
Kenny Vinyard, senior, gained recognition by
his election as Mr. AHS.
Vinyard goes all out for sports. Other than
football, he has been a member of baseball
team for two years and the wrestling team for
one. He is also a member of Bel Canto, Spanish
Club, and Allied Youth.
Representing Amarillo High as Miss AHS for
1964-65, is senior Cheryl Garner. She was elect-
ed to this honor because of her never ceasing
support of the school. Miss Garner has devoted
much of her energy to cheerleading for the past
two years. She is a member of Allied Youth and
Future Teachers. The AHS Key Club elected
Miss Garner their sweetheart.

pelled to give some sort of accolade to deserving
seniors. Thus, this section-Sandieland Salutes,

phases of Amarillo High School life. They have,
on their own initiative, devoted much time and

Amarillo High School is pri-
marily an institution of learn-
ing. Students have come here,
for over 75 years to receive an
excellent education. However,
pursuance of knowledge alone
can be stifling. Sandies have
traditionally sought out extra-
curricular activities to enrich
their leisure hours. Dating and
other social life outside of
school is augmented by school
sponsored activities. Dances,
pep rallies and school organi-
zations have hecome an im-
portant part of every Sandie's

Colden Sandie Band is essential to Amarillo
High School. The band contributes more to the
school than is readily knowledgeable.

and sight reading contest, and the trip to the
Tri-State Music Festival in Enid, Okla. are
just a few of the extra activities of the band.
Band members participate in all the pep rallies
and play at the football games.
More than a hundred students take part in
the band and do their parts, by staying after
school every day until 5 p.m. and marching
even in the dreariest weather.

to recognize the band and to announce the drum
majors for the next year.

as state convention is in Houston. This year's
area convention will be held at Palo Duro.

is participating in such things as agriculture
and leadership contests. These are held at
various times during the year, and include such
divisions as livestock, grass, poultry, and feed
judging, skill contests, and public speaking

Huge Crowds See Sandie Festival
"Remember the gay old days," says Julie Chase, senior, to Dan
Jones, senior, as they dance to a number from 1892 in the Festival.
The third annual production of the Sandie
Festival was viewed by a capacity crowd of
both students and the public on Feb. 26 and 27.
Produced by Louis Pippin and Earl Mills,
the festival included a total of 12 acts, from
organizations such as Student Council, Allied
Youth, Sandie Steppers, Cheerleaders, the
Speech Department, Bel Canto Chorale and the
orchestra. Individual performances by Kathy
Harris, Carol Harris, Sharon Mauldin, Thunda
Raines and Dana Juett, seniors, were also pre-
sented. Wayne Muller, music director for the
festival, conducted a specially-selected orchestra
that not only accompanied the individual scenes
but also performed independently.
Initiated in 1963, the Sandie Festival has
become an annual affair at Amarillo High. The
festival is an entirely extracurricular project,
the purpose of which is to allow 'students who
have talent to make a contribution to school
life and to increase their interest in and loyalty
for the school. It is an educational project in
that students develop their creative talents and
at the same time grow in their ability to get
along with others and to submerge their own
desires for the benefit of the whole.
Bel Canto Chorale singers lend color and song to the Sandie Festival as they open the show with numbers from Broadway bits.

Pep Team Spurs Student Spirit
A blur of black and gold-a reverberating
echo-the spirit of Sandieland personified.
Sandie cheerleaders are required to be out-
standing in character. They are required to
excel in citizenship, loyalty and school spirit.
They are expected to have an average of at
least 85 backed by good attendance, no truan-
cies or unexcused absences.
But such requirements are only the begin-
ning. Sandie cheerleaders are those students
responsible for keeping student spirit high in de-
feat as well as victory. They are the ones who
keep smiling, the ones who work long hours
behind the scenes and before huge crowds.

Amarillo Golden.Sandstorm fell, 7 to 3, Oct.
24, at Dick Bivins Stadium.

from the Rebels early in the game, but were
soon forced to punt. Ken Vinyard, senior half-
back, toed the ball for 61 yards. The visitors
found AHS defense inpenetrable and punted
out to their own 30. Vinyard was called in and
booted the longest'field goal in Texas high

3 to 0.
The second half settled .down to a defensive

14 to 7, total yards gained, 265 to 14-3, and
completed passes, but led in recovered fumbles
and punting. Ricky Belcher called for 78 yards

Pampals two lone season defeats came at the
hands of the Sandies.

Those Who Helped . . .
A yearbook is composed of the efforts of many
peopleg people who helped make this book what it
Photographers are essential for any staff, and
the 1965 La Airosa was fortunate in having the
services of Daryl Bayle and Larry Byrd. Garre
Lowrance, Raynile Bales and Gary Burgess were
a tremendous help also.
Woody Berry, Janis Parks and Teresa Inman
overcame problems of inexperience to produce some
of the better pages in this book. '
Suzanne Thompson, editor, and the staff of the
Sandstorm took time out of their busy schedules to
help when help was needed most.
Sharon Tolzien and Carroll Wilson spent their.
year in a sea of words as they typed most of the
body copy for the section editors.
David Nail, working with Steve Jackson, pro-
'duced a sports section in the face of nearly insur-

Being editor of a yearbook will make one grateful to
many people. Now that the books are distributed, I can
recognize those persons whose help was vital in putting this
Miss Jeannie Bookout, a new sponsor, faced the same
problems we all faced and then more. Her energy and en-
thusiasm led us through many hectic moments.
To Bobby Mays and Frank Johnson I am especially grate-
ful. Bobby spent long hours in the darkroom in addition to
editing the classes section. Frank Johnson is as much a part
of this hook as the pages themselves. Every section of this
book hears his mark.
Steve Jackson, news editor for the Sandstorm, took over
the sports section at the last moment and produced profes-
Mr. Earl Mills and Ken Little of the Student Council
were most helpful in selling yearhooks. Mr. Floyd Hob-
son of Taylor Publishing did much to light the way for
the 1965 La Airosa.
We hope we have preserved this year and the traditions
of Sandieland for you. We have done the hest that we know
