The Home of the Golden Sandstorm had been given a face lifting. The old slate stairs had been replaced with terrazzo stairs, the Nixson building, first high school building in Amarillo, was crumbling at the hand of bulldozers and cranes. Still there was some- thing old among the new surroundings, something which the hands of workmen could not change. Sandie tradition lived on in the newly renovated surroundings. Tradition is an im- portant part of any school. New schools strive to build it, old schools strive 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 like no other. lt has provided the spark for the spirit of three other high schools while growing stronger through the years at AHS. The Staff of the 1965 La Airosa presents to you . . . Sandielandfllich in Tradition. .

As the campus has expanded on an old founda- tion, so has Sandie tradition expanded from old beginnings. The commons, a practical and beautiful addition to the school, did much to relieve congestion in the halls. 5 M and L , ' VH New f e.,.Zf::::'- 1-is 7 Sandie Activities . . .

Mrs. Atlanta Kaye enrolls an additional student at the end of the day. Spring brings a favorite pastime to Sandie- land. Cupid frequently visits the halls of AHS. . . . Reflect Past and Present Traditions Swimming provides physical education students with healthful rec- reation in addition to providing an enjoyable activity. We come to school to learn, but books yield only a partial education. Sandies traditionally seek out extracurricular activi- ties, thus learning lessons in living. 9 Qtudious Qandies . . .

ADVERTISING Mrs. Marion Qchoen Marion Schoen Is '65 Dedicatee 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. Bom in Gadsden, Alabama, Mrs. Ma- 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 Oklahoma University. 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 best that we can offer in return for the gift of knowledge and love she has given us. I .fi :fi 1 I Academics 'I' he curricular structure of the American High School has changed radically since thc launching of the Sputnik in the late fifties. The standards of 'academic excellence have been adopted hy the majority of high school students: it is no longer "square" to he smart. Amarillo High School has pio- neered the presentation of ad- vanced scientific and liberal arts courses in America. K 'www , 1? gt! , ig, , bzlw hyfnifzk 4 K.

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 their doctorates. 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 40. 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 math. The basic goal of the Mathematics Depart- ment is to increase participation because much more math is being required in higher educa- tion. Steve Rutledge senior, accepts help from Mr. Teague on a problem in math analysis. use 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 bacteriology. 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. Lab Improves "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. Foreign Speech 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. w 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- ing. 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 vocabulary. 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 literature. 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 literature. 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. 22 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. 23 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 future. Government 40 is designed to inform seniors how our government works. Sophomores are required to study world historyg a study from the primitive ages to the present. 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- structors.

Varied Trades Curriculum Offered Trades courses are those which prepare a stu- dent for a job immediately after graduation. In a trades course, a pupil learns how to do a job and do it better. Distributive Education, taught by Raymond Wilson, prepares a student for a career in such jobs as selling, distribution, of goods and more effective display. The student is thereby quali- fied for a position in merchandising. The D.E. Club's officers are Gary Pelfry, president, Sam- my Fincher, vice-president, Sharon Simms, sec- retary, Beth Giles, treasurer, and Steve Clark, reporter. Cathy Shelton is the sweetheart. Oliver S. Diggs teaches Diversified Occupa- tion. In this class students receive individual as- signments according to the occupations for which they are preparing.

DE and DO Offer Job Opportunitg "My boss gave me a raise yesterday!" says DE student Cathy Shelton, senior, as she and Gary Pelfry and Chris Sanford, both seniors, leave class to go to eir jobs. 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 good business.

Office Emplogment Courses in commercial arts are designed for the purpose of preparing and giving a person much needed training and experience before entering the world of business. Subjects offered are typing, shorthand, stenographic practice, business math, business law and bookkeeping. A pupil who is engaged in the study of steno- graphic practice serves as a secretary or helper to a teacher. These- students also help teachers prepare stencils, and gain much knowledge and valuable experience. Typing, a course which is almost mandatory for students who plan to attend college, is of- fered ,on junior and senior levels. The main purpose of the first year typing course is to learn keyboard techniques. Shorthand is helpful in jobs concerning of- fices and personal secretaries. Students who plan to further their education find it useful in taking notes. Business math, designed to teach the opera- tion of different machines, as the adding ma- chine, is offered to all students who have taken first year typing. Instructors for commercial arts are Miss Adelle Shows, Miss Velma Shows and Earl Mills. Students in bookkeeping learn to balance books and use office machines. The class is instructed by Mr. Mills. Students in typing class under Miss Shows learn the many uses of the typewriter. 37 Russ Chesire, Wally Bettis and other NDCC ca- dets inspect their rifles in the Armory.

Girls participating in the physical education pro- gram receive a full year of activities designed to develop their physical fitness and coordination. The physical education program is offered to de- velop the students' sportsmanship as well as skill in sports. They take part in such activities as basket- ball, volleyball, golf, badminton, archery and modern dancing. There are two teachers in charge of approximately 500 girls enrolled in physical education. Both of the teachers, in addition to teaching PE., is a sponsor of some extra-curricular activity. Miss Billye Gray is the cheerleaders' sponsor and Mrs. Betty Jones is sponsor of the Sandie Steppers. Both these teachers strive to give the girls a well-rounded and beneficial program. , Three years in physical education are required 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 80 percentile receive a merit emblem. t'I'd say l caught that balli' says Lizbeth Lewis as she practices in Miss Grayis gym class. 45 Q o o Qpeoual Courses Develop Special Skulls Contemplating a problem that needs to be solved for Mr. Self's Electrics 40 class is Craig Corbin, senior.

The shoe fits well for this yearis queen, Pat Dodson, who was crowned three times, Nov. 10. The coronation was directed by Mrs. N. N. Whitworth, head of the Drama Department, and senior Phil Christie acted as Master of Cere- monies. Ann Bynum, runner-up for Queen, was Sen- ior Princess. Sophomore and Junior Princesses were chosen from the class officers. Sophomore and junior class presidents escorted their respec- tive Princesses. John Gidel, senior class president, presented a bracelet to the queen, and Ken Little, Student Council president, awarded her with the royal scepter. The Queen's court consisted of 12 senior girls and 12 senior boys. The girls were Sharon Tol- zien, Sylvia Carter, Jackie Bickley, Karen Ket- ler, Sharon Mauldin, Nancy Dollarhide, Susan Blackburn, Pam Railsback, Suzanne Kemp, Candy Bourassa, Diane Anderson and Cheryl Gamer.

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 Future Teachers. She was one of the three finalists for queen. 85 .40 fb 4 4 f 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. 1, ,.

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. 89 M' nuff' Y' 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. 9I S if A 4555235 wwf, , 55 W' N 1-vfigggiiiwrifxf f 4. ME ,- Q ' +3 John Gidel is truly one who merits the honor of W'ho's Who.

I02 BARNETT BLASDEL DELFS FRIEDMAN CORBIN HAYS AHS Leads State in Merit Scholars Amarillo High's score soared in the National Merit Scholarship test, given last March. Out of 36 semi-finalists from Amarillo, 21 were from AHS. The National Merit Scholarship Program rec- ognizes two groups of students. The semifinal- ists arecomposed of the highest scoring students. The second group, the finalists, are tested again and 98 per cent of the semi-finalists become finalists. Out of the 21 semifinalists at AHS 19 became finalists. These tests increase opportunities to obtain fi- nancial assistance if needed. The merit corpora- tion sends the test scores of the students to the college indicated on their tests.

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 extracurricular life. a as 21? 5 2:1 umm'M'w.1mm.m:Lmzmwm1W,,'m.Qsarm1m1L,1mA11-11u:11,11a1.1.111,wv11 1,.wfmwwuw.1mJm11wzw11w11,1111 LQNM111- 11"11- 11'11w111'-1111 111 rx 1 1 , , , 1 , 1 - 1 1 1 1 1 11 1- 11 1- - A Rebels A Sandie pep rally is recognized when cries of uvictoryi' echo throughout the halls of San- dieland. Pep Rallies urge each individual to partici- pate in the building of Sandie Spirit. Pride in the school is shown by the attendance, noise, color and splendor wrought at pep rallies. Thundering voices of the student body bring a vibration of excitement. This excitement pro- motes spirit in the students and players which in turn brings victory to our school. Enthusiasm brought about by Sandie pep rallies helps give players the determination to win. Leading yells at one of the many football pep rallies is .lohn Robert Delfs, senior Mr. Sandman.

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.

FFA Members Participate in Contests Future Farmers of America has been a major club at AHS since it was organized in 1949. Operated on a nationwide scale, the club is broken down into states, regions, areas and finally into school chapters. Sponsor of the AHS chapter is Herb Davis, agriculture teacher. The club meets once a month on Tuesday evening. Officers of FFA are Eddie Kirkwood, senior, president, Clay Read, senior, vice-president, Bob Garner, jun- ior, secretaryg Mike Belt, senior, treasurer, ,loe Colantonio, senior, reporter, Willis Grisham, senior, sentinel. Carol Pipkin was elected Sweet- heart for the 1964-65 school term. Any agriculture student may be a member of FFA. His dues go toward sponsoring agri- ,culture contests, the annual FFA banquet, and state awards. The national FFA organization holds a con- vention in Kansas City each year, and the Tex- as state convention is in Houston. This year's area convention will be held at Palo Duro. The main idea of the club, as stated by Davis, 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 meets.

It was not as modern or convenient, but it had one big thing in com- mon With the Amarillo High of today-it had an orchestra. Under the direction of Wayne Muller, 60 orchestra members have brought much pleasure to the Sandies. The orchestra not only plays at concerts, but also gives occasional evening re- citals, works with the choir, and performs at many junior high schools. The orchestra pro- vides music for the annual Queen Coronation and graduation exercises. Usually, members practice an additional five to six hours for a program. As in every group of people, there are some . who are outstanding. They include Randy Hays, orchestra presidentg Ken Burk, vice-presidentg and Vicki Stewart, secretary. Sharon Tolzein was elected orchestra queen. Members of the Orchestra Council are Julie Hays, seniorg Alan Brown, juniorg and Janet Tolk, sophomore.

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. CHERYL GARNER DEE DOSS Cheerleaders are IL to Rl Doug Fike, Linda Rury, Weldon Mitchell, Cheryl Garner, Gilmore Williams and Dee Doss, seniors, and Don Dodson, Bonnie Veazey, Bob Joe and Linda Turner, yumors.

In contact with a student sometimes as much as six hours a day, the coaching facul- ty at AHS has been ready to give guidance when neededg each is ready to talk when prob- lems arise. Perhaps nowhere else can one find the close relationship between a student and an adult that is present between a young man and his coach.

TAQCOQA 7 - QANDIES 3 Unxable to overcome a slim Tascosa lead, the Amarillo Golden.Sandstorm fell, 7 to 3, Oct. 24, at Dick Bivins Stadium. The spirited Sandstorm was first to strike out its scoreboard goose-egg. They took over 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.

The second half settled .down to a defensive duel, with neither team able to penetrate the goal line. The Sandies trailed in first downs, 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 to lead both teams.

Junior back Mike Brewer stood out for the Sandies gaining 65 yards in 11 carries. Amarillois Golden Sandstorm proved to be the surprise of District 3-AAAA loop activity. Spotted as possible fifth place material in pre- season district polls, Amarillo captured second place with a 13 to 2 record in the first half of conference play. The Sandies, determined to end their stay in the Armory with a flourish, stole first place to end the second stanza of season play. This put Amarillo in a three-way tie for first with Lubbock and Pampa. However, the Har- vesters represented the Panhandle conference in Bi-District play on basis of games won. Pampals two lone season defeats came at the hands of the Sandies. Coach Johnny Ethridge's crew had only three seniors. This fact, coupled with the best cage season since 1952, should provide a strong Sandie team for the future.

Whole segments of the American economy have been oriented around the American teenager. Amarillo High School, situated in the heart of downtown Am- arillo, is in a prime location to observe the principles of demo- cratic capitalism at work. The curriculum of AHS has re- flected a growing trend to sound business education in American schools. Students may now study such courses as business education, business math, eco- nomics, business law, and bookkeeping.

FL 6-I902 Those Who Helped . . . A yearbook is composed of the efforts of many peopleg people who helped make this book what it IS. 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- mountable obstacles.

Now that the books are distributed, I can recognize those persons whose help was vital in putting this hook together. 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- sional results. 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 how.
