CLIFFORD M. SOREM, District Superintendent
The ever increasing high school enroll-
ment creates problems in school housing
and finance. Expansion of the school plant
has. however. provided an opportunity to
improve the functional arrangement of the
buildings. The Science and Homemaking
Departments have this year moved from
scattered. inferior. and makeshift quarters
into modern. attractive. and well-planned
classrooms. Proposed building additions
to meet the growth of the next few years
include ten standard classrooms, two shop
classrooms. a combination .cafeteria and
music building. and an addition to the
locker and dressing room facilities of the
A continuous program of curriculum
planning has made possible a better basic
education, has provided more opportuni-
ties to develop vocational skills, has given
more emphasis to preparation for family
and community life. and has encouraged

The primary purpose of this or any
school is to provide educational opportuni-
ties for you, the student. Your Board of
Trustees and the administration provide
for the physical facilities and the personnel
to carry out this objective. But there are
many services other than those in the
actual classroom that the school provides
which make for the smoother running of

DON PETERSON and SALLY CONKLIN
Srudent Body' President and Vive President
PETERSON - CONKLIN
Through the years a student government
system has been developed at .Xrcata Linion
High School which is as satisfactory as
that of other American schools and su-
perior to that of many. Students of
fX.L'.HS. are fortunate to be able to govern
themselves and to have modern faculty and
administrative heads who encourage stu-
lion Peterson and Sally Conklin were
elected by the student body to the offices
of student body president and vice presi-
dent for the first semester of the 1954-55
Being energetic. alert leaders. they pro-
ceded to work out the planks of their plat-
form. More assemblies were promised and
the picture story on pages U6-97 is evi-
dence that the students were given many
interesting assemblies. The new office of
assembly chairman was created.
Through their efforts. grass was planted
in the yard between the classroom building
and the new science building. A telephone
in the gym. a project that had been spoken
of since its opening. was installed in the
autumn of 1954-.
A very important change concerned
cheerleader and song queen tryouts. Previ-
ous to this time. all participants wore
special outfits which entailed considerable
cost. That this was unjust to many would-
be candidates was the general concept.
Therefore. a ruling was passed that street
clothes. gym clothes. or pedal pushers
should be worn. This inet with unques-
tionable approval by the student body.
Don Peterson was elected parliamentar-
ian of the Humboldt-Del Norte lnterschool
Conference. which met in South Fork and
Eureka during the first semester.
STUDENT GOVERNMENT - AN IMPORTANT
SPENCER - JOHNSON
Ed Spencer and Beverly Johnson were
elected lui the student lmody to the offices
of student lvody president and vice presi-
dent for the spring semester of the l'P5-l-55
lievision of the .-XlfHS Constitution was
the most amlmitious project undertaken luv
the student administration. Because of the
lielief that many provisions had lmecome
out-dated. a committee that included john
Payne. Bruce Chetty. Ron Siemens. lion
Peterson. and the student executive officers
went to work on the constitution. culling
out obsolete parts and providing new
measures that a larger school enrollment
has made necessary.
Calendars of all scheduled activities were
given to the student body' card holders
during the second semester as they were
in the fall.
New trash cans. which the first semester
council voted to liuv. were installed.
A light was provided hy the telephone
booth on the front steps during school
evenings activities. This step eliminated
a safety hazard.
The matter of putting a slot in the
lihrarv door to facilitate easy return of
hooks when the library is closed was given
consideration by the council.
llumholdt-Del Norte Inter-school Coun-
cil met twice during the spring semester.

A student council dinner, staged on October 25, was a very enjoyable event with
council members and faculty sharing a potluck dinner and witnessing fine entertain-
ment from student musicians. Reports from Sally Conklin, Don Peterson, and Frank
Spaid were a highlight of the evening.

A major change in the ruling concerning leaning on school railings was passed by
council and went into effect on Thursday, December 16. The revision made the act of
sitting on, or placing objects on, school railings unlawful while making it lawful to
lean on or over railings. with restrictions for safety.
The Varsity Club members. with Jim Dimmick in the top position, continued to
act as hailiffs and turned out a highly satisfactory job. John Vieira discharged duties
of the gayel capahly as judge with Pat Linville as court recorder and Frank Spaid
as district attorney.
Mr. Cady served as advisor to the court, which was usually filled to capacity on
Thursday noon, drawing many interested onlookers as well as those to whom tickets
had been issued.

Capturing and recording the year's events and activities at Arcata High School
was the task of the Journalism II class, who published the Pepperbox, school news-
paper, and the Advance, school annual.
The Pepperbox, edited by Geraldine Cater, was issued approximately every two
weeks. Bobbie McCrory supervised front page news and Darlene Gassaway handled
feature pages. Sports page editing revolved among Journalism I students, ,lim Dim-
mick, Larry Johnson, Scott Holmes, Tom Fay, Don Harris, Alvin Carlson. Others
served as reporters.
An innovation in publications was a weekly five minute news program broadcast
by June Ford and Dick Olson on KHIQM on Saturday afternoons. Selection of the
twenty 4'Top Tunesi' by A.If.H.S. students was directed through this department.
To terminate the year's work five delegates attended a press conference, sponsored
by the Ifniversity of California publications department in Berkeley, in early May.
Competitions in feature and newswriting were entered. Informative speakers made
the sessions interesting and provided useful ideas for the use of the next year's staff.
Lois Morrow and Rena McLennan were approved as co-editors for the 1956
Advance by the student council in the spring.
Mr. George Studley was advisor for the Pepperbox and Advance.
The publications group is pictured on the opposite page. The background is the
front page of an issue of the Pepperbox.
Rena McLennan and Lois Morrow, who will be co-
editors of the 1956 Advance, began early to raise
funds for the book by selling old Advance pictures.

GIRLS' LEAGUE PROSPERS
The second largest school organization is the Girls- League. which includes in its
membership every girl in school and all faculty members. It aims Hto promote and
sustain school spirit." Girls' League tries to make each girl feel that she has definite
responsibility and duty toward her schoolg to develop leadership, cooperation, and a
friendly feeling between the girls and their associates: and to render unified aid
toward the success of all undertakings entered into lay the school.
ln the autumn a Big ni Little Sister Party is given to introduce each freshman girl
to a senior girl who will be her big sister for the year-someone to whom she can
come for help during the first weeks of high school.
Xoon dances are given each month for all students. A dance band, composed of
student musicians. played for the dances this year.
At Christmas time Girls' League sponsors a project in which they collect foodstuffs
to be given to needy families. Everyone in school contributes to this.
ln the spring a senior tea. to which the girls invite their mothers, is staged.
A highlight of the year is the awarding of the Girls' League Honor Shield to a
senior girl who is selected by the vote of all girls in school. It is presented at the final
assembly in the school year. The girl to whom it is awarded is a person who exempli-
fies the qualities and character of a popular leader. Kay Killinger was awarded the
Girls, League Honor Shield in 1954.
Helen Olson led the organization through an active year as its president. Joanne
Beer was vice president: Sarah Spidell, secretaryg Sally Conklin, treasurerg Elizabeth

during football and basketball seasons. Cheerleaders and song queens teach new
yells and routines to the students at rallies.
Assemblies presented throughout the past year have brought many interesting
performers to Arcata High. In the fall Captain Lillian M. Kinkela, an Air Force

A four-way tie. unprecedented in the history of the C.1.F. League, was the result
of the 1955 basketball season. Arcata. Ferndale. Eureka. and Fortuna shared first
The Heavies were the most balanced ball club in the league. Earl Dimmick led
in the scoring column for the second year with 161 points and also got his share
of rebounds during the games.
The Tigers. captained by Carl Carlson. were consistent throughout the season. even
if they were one of the shortest clubs in the league, averaging about six feet per
The playmaking of the club was brought around by the shortest player on the
club, sophomore Bill Brittain. who was a consistent driving threat and always ready
to steal the ball from his opponents. Larry Johnson was effective with his long shot
or a driving jump shot. Jim Dimmick had an injured knee at the beginning of the
season. but came back with the touch he had last year.
Graduation losses include Carl Carlson. Lynn Layton. Lyle Milligan. Bud Scott.
Jim Vinum. and Bob Walker. Next yearis varsity should benefit by the experience
gained this season by such mainstays as Earl Dimmick. Larry Johnson. Jim Dimmick.
Bill Brittain. and Ken Armstrong. a newcomer from Oregon.

game in the last two seconds of the game. Carl Carlson blocked a pass thrown by
a Fortuna player and threw it to Jim Dimmick who shot the lay-in to win the

and Bob 6'Snuffy'i Smith, the Lightweights were unable to crash the upper division.

One main reason for the downfall of the HLittle Tigers" was that Cane Forson
was injured during practice and was put out for the last four games. Forson had a 15
point average until he was injured.
The Tiger Liniiteds were never to be taken lightly by their opponents. Although
they didn't take first place. they were a hustling ball team every minute they were
on the floor.
The nlainstays of the team were Cane Forson, Gary Simpson. Bob Smith, Dick
Poole. --Pete" Peterson. Dennis West. and the two hustling subs. Marvin llusi and

This spring saw many prospects out for the 1955
Tiger Baseball squad. Losing only Bolm Lawson. Vern
Friedli.-and Willis Denny. the Tigers maintained a strong
team throughout the entire season.
Earl Moranda, who made all-county during the 195-1
season, aided the Tigers in the outfield again this year.
For the 1955 season we had these returning veterans:
Larry Johnson, Carl Carlson, Lynn Layton, Earl Horan-

As business manager for the 1955 Advance
H M l'd like to thank all the students who financed
Q our book. It was through their subscriptions
alone that we were able to fill the pages of
This year the staff faced quite a problem
financing the book. The administration ta-
booed the selling of advertising to local mer-
chants, all of which forced us to lower our
budget to S3200 ta drop of S2000 from the
previously planned budget of 852001 and
switch from letterpress to lithography.
Our goal was to sell 900 books. The stu-
dent council backed us up, underwriting the
sale of the 900 Advances.
Another change in the business area was
the assumption of all the bookkeeping by the
business manager. This has required more
time and effort but has provided worthy re-
wards. l have received personal satisfaction
out of assisting editor Beverly Johnson and
contributing to the production of another
CORINNE INMAN Students who have assisted me with my job
Advance BUSWGSS MGMECV and who deserve thanks are Ann Evans, Gay-
lene Johnson, Rossie Evans, and Rita John-
Last, but not least, l wish to thank Mr.
Studley for his guiding hand.
Final words--for the 1955 Advance-for me as the A.U.H.S. yearbook advisor.
In publishing this year's book, we worked with a system entirely new to the
publications staff. Thanks to an energetic and conscientious editor, l'm certain that
the 1955 Advance will rate highly with all students.
The bulk of the credit for your annual should go to Beverly Johnson. She as-
sumed full responsibility, discharged her job in a manner meriting only praise.
Credit should also go to Corinne Inman, the gal who kept the books balanced.
In parting . . . good luck to all graduating seniors . . . to those of you who will
return to the campus next fall . . . to the 1955-56 publications staff . . . to A.U.H.S.
Here's to your good fortune!
