Aaaanee l6'nsiness ,Manager
Being your l956 Advance Business Manager
has been a most gratifying experience. l have
enjoyed working with Co-Editors Lois Morrow and
Having to sell ll0O books made it a bit more
difficult for the staff, but with the assistance
of the Student Council, this goal was accom-
plished. Our budget totaled 53900, an increase
of S700 over l955, to cover the cost of the 200
My thanks goes to the merchants and business-
men for their helpful cooperation which makes
this Advance the success it is.
Students who aided in the work and who deserve a "thank you" are Sharon
Johnson, Linda Dolf, Cleta Tolley, Gaylene Johnson, Judy Chown, and Pat Mc-
Donough. Special thanks goes to Sandy Melendy and Joyce Silva for their help
on the books.
Last, but not least, to Mr. Crittenden-thank you for your assistance.
Of utmost importance to a "freshman" publication advisor are the editors of
the newspaper and the yearbook.
In my first year at Arcata . . . I was fortunate enough to be blessed with four
leaders whom l valued highly: Rena McLennan, Lois Morrow . . . Editors of the
Advance and Tom Fay and Don Harris . . . Editors of the Pepperbox. l say
thanks to them and thanks to the other members of both staffs, Together we
learned how to put out the yearbook and the paper and for my part the ex-
perience was both enlightening and valuable. lt will make my iob that much
easier in the future. Thank you!

The 1955 Grid Season was a successful one for
the Tigers as they wound up the year with a 5 win
and 3 loss record. Two of the Tiger losses were to
the champion Loggers of Eureka, the other to an
undefeated Fort Bragg team.
The Tigers started off the season in fine style by
dumping the South Fork Cubs 25 to O. The South
Fork team later went on to tie for the championship
in the Little Three League.
The Tigers first road trip of the season, was to
Fort Bragg where they ran up against a tough Tim-
berwolf eleven. The Tigers dropped the game 7 to O.

The Tigers then stepped into their first league game with the Warriors of Del
Norte. The Tigers handled Del Norte with ease as they won 39 to 7.
The Tigers next came up against their trans-bay rivals, the Eureka Loggers, fall-
ing before this strong team 31 to 13. This score lies a little as the Tigers played
great ball the first half, leading at halftime 13 to 12.
The Tigers bounced back a week later as they trounced the Fortuna Huskies
31 to O.
The Tigers again came up against Eureka in a game that would decide the
championship. The Tigers weren't up for this game as they fell to the Loggers for
the second time this season by the score of 26 to O.
The Tigers now ran up against the winless Warriors of Del Norte, trouncing
them again 38 to 6.
The Tigers final Grid game was against the Fortuna Huskies in a game that
would decide second place. The Tigers won the runner-up slot by defeating the
Huskies 14 to 6.
Three Tiger regulars were named to the All-County team. They were: Tom
Weeks, Bill Brittain, and Jay Theil. All three will be back next year.

I 956 ffeazfywezyhf Squad
The Arcata Tigers started the T955-56 hoop season as the pre-season favorites
to walk away with the Humboldt-Del Norte CIF League crown.
The Tigers lead the league for more than three-fourths of the season before
falling into a slump and dropping their last three out of four league games.
Before the Tigers dropped their first game to the Del Norte Warriors on the
home court, they had compiled a twenty-one win, nothing loss record, nine of
which were in league play. The Tigers, after beating every team in the league
by ten or more points, excepting the Del Norte game which we lost by two points,
dropped three games in the last two weeks of the season to fall into a tie for
second place with the Del Norte Warriors.
One of the most exciting games was in the first round of league play, when the
Eureka Loggers came riding into town all tied up for first place with the Tigers.
Although Arcata won by eleven points the game was one of the thrillers o'f the
season. Both games with the Del Norte Warriors also had many thrill-packed
moments as Arcata split with the Warriors for the Humboldt-Del Norte CIF title.
For the first time in many years the Tigers went to a post-season tournament.
Arcata travelled to Yreka where they participated in the first Annual Yreka Invi-
tational Basketball Tournament. The Tigers started the tournament in fine style,
by dumping the tourney favorites, the Weed Cougars, in the opening round.
Arcata then went on to split their remaining two games to receive the third place
trophy. Earl Dimmick was named to the all tournament squad.
Jim Dimmick captained the squad this year and was a major asset to the Tigers
with his driving hook shot. Earl Dimmick and Gane Forson aided the Tigers with
their board play and ability to work around the key. Ken Armstrong and Larry
Johnson helped the Tiger cause with their long set shots. Bill Brittain, number
six man on the squad this year, was also ready to fill a gap left by one of the
regulars as he kept the Tigers full of life with his scrappy ball playing. Jim
Dimmick was appointed to the all-county basketball team.
Members of the heavyweight squad are, seated, left to right: Dennis West, Ken Armstrong, Larry
Johnson, Scott Holmes, Bill Brit-tain. Kneeling: John Black, Gene Forson, Bob McCord, George
Berry, Sam Bishop. Standing: Doyle Burwell, Earl Dimmick, Richard Carr, Jim Dimmick.

Many students go to high school iust because every-
body goes to high school these days. School should be
a place for the important business of preparing for the
future. It is hard to sell this idea to students, and they
may wake up to its importance after it is too late.
Few students realize that almost every person at some
time in his life must depend upon his high school for
a recommendation. Whether this be for the armed serv-
ices, college, or for a iob, your high school records-
academic, behavior, and attendance-will be the basis of
For those graduating, l hope you have a record of
which you may be proud. For those vvho will be back to
school, I suggest you take a good look at your high
school record up to this point-you may find room for

Headed by their new coach, Eldon Watts, the Little Tigers fielded their first
winning team since 1947, and also the first lightweight team to beat Eureka since
Arcata's biggest setback came with the first game of the season, as the Tigers
beat the highly touted St. Bernard Crusaders, but then later had to forfeit because
of an ineligible player. The forfeiting hurt the Tigers, but not as much as losing
5'1O" Tom Fay. Coach Watts had to hurriedly work another player into his smooth
working aggression. The Tiger's most exciting game of the season was against
their arch rivals the Eureka Loggers in a game that saw the Little Tigers winning
by a scant two points.
Bob Smith captained the Little Tiger team to fourth place with uncanny lay-ins.
Phil Peterson and Marvin Dusi aided the Tigers with their long set shots and team
spirit. Lanky center Rich Abbott and Don Schneitter, hard driving as a guard, were
always an asset to the Little Tigers with their backboard control and assuring
ability to get away shots. The Little Tiger's number six man, Ron Siemens, was
always hustling and keeping the team together in tense moments.
Captain Bob Smith was elected to the all-county team.
Members of the fighting lightweight team are, first row, left to right: Bob Hampton, Ken Matias, Ron
Russell, Monty Feekes, Chuck Feris. Second row: Dennis Pontoni, Phil Peterson, Marvin Dusi,

Perhaps the greatest privilege
and benefit to students at
A.U.H.S. is the right to govern
Jim Dimmick and Scott Holmes
were elected as first semester
President and Vice President to
head our legislative branch.
Their campaign speeches were
not enshrouded with fancy
phrases of spectacular promises.
Few promises were made, but
Speed limit signs were posted
on the road to the gymnasium,
and this same road was repaired
under their supervision.
The most controversial motion
during Jim and Scott's term was
the reserving of the lawn be-
tween the Classroom Building
and the Science Building for the
Seniors. Arrangements we re
made to provide this lawn with
benches in the spring.
Jim and Scott, as others before them, probed into
the problem of the Public Address System in the gym-
nasium. They found that nothing beneficial could be
Under these capable leaclers, our system of self-
Scott Holmes and Mary West
were elected to head our gov-
ernment for the spring semester.
The biggest issue during their
term of office was the revision
of the Constitution. John Payne
was chairman of the Constitu-
tion committee, and with the help
of Scott and his committee, it
was hoped that a completely
revised Constitution could be
produced before the end of the
Scott and Mary had few planks
in their platform and most of
these were fulfilled before the
end of the third quarter.
Trees and shrubbery were
planted in the front of the school.
Gravel was spread on the mud-
dy bank along side of the gym-
nasium and the road to the gym
was again repaired.
Plans were made to publish
the Constitution in "Tiger Tales,"
a student handbook in order
that incoming Freshmen would
know the laws governing Arcata
Union High School.
Scott and Mary also intended to remedy the seating situa'ion by providing the
campus with more benches.
The students of A.U.H.S. again proved that by electing dependable leaders
we are able to maintain the right to self-government.

Annie with train companions on her shooting tour
The fall play presented at the Arcata High
School Arena Theater was a Broadway musical,
"Annie, Get Your Gun."
It was the first play of its kind ever to be
presented here. The Music and Drama Depart-
ments combined forces in producing this delight-
ful musical comedy. Much effort and work was
performed behind the scenes to make the play
such a huge success.

who as Frank Butler, played the leading roll in "Annie
Get Your Gun."
The lead parts went to Carole Griffith as Annie,
and to Dave Call, as Frank Butler. These two were
completely competent in their parts, and the
large supporting cast was equally efficient.
The play was based on the book Annie Get
Your Gun, by Dorothy and Herbert Fields. Irving
Berlin wrote the music and lyrics. It was presented
by special permission of the Dramatic Publishing
Company, Chicago, lllinois.
