A CAMPUS LANDMARK lS DEDICATED DON WALKENSHAW The stars and stripes slowly ascended the pole-finally arriving at its peak . . . Below, hundreds of students stood with bared heads to pay tribute to the memory of Don Walkenshaw-one of the best athletes Arcata High has ever produced . . . Don met sudden death in a tragic swimming accident at the Senior Picnic last year . . . His fatal plunge made such a profound impression on his fellow students that they donated funds to build a memorial in his name . . . In the words of Allen Ham-guest speaker at the dedication-"This is the Amer- ican way-dedicating a flagpole in honor of a typical American boy" . . . Rev- erend Albert Blood opened the ceremony with a prayer and closed it with a benediction . . . Boy Scouts from the Color Guard marched out to raise the flag as the band played the National Anthem. Hushed silence pervaded the scene as the students slowly departed at the end of the ceremony . . . The spirit of Don Walkenshaw shall live on in the hearts of future generations of AUHS students as they pass our newest campus landmark . . . Y fi A 3' V I The student body watches as the flag is raised at the dedi- cation of the Don Walken- shaw Memorial Flag Pole. 2: S Q W fr We, If ,Q ul 11.6, 5-K ,sg 1 ,I A f 4 5 ... .. 1' ' ' f, 1 N .
