Student Council is an active group, taking part in all school activities as well as sponsoring its own events such
as a Valentine Day's Dance. It cooperates with the administxation in its projects, and :Lick the P.T.A. when needed,
such as helping with the "Back to School Night" for Parents.
The main purpose of Student Council is to act as the "middle man" in problems that arise in school concerning
students and faculty. Erich class is represented at all council functions and in this way every student has a chance
to express his ideas or complaints. It s the co1mci.l's job to find solutions to the students' problems.

. . .The class of 1357 has had four years of activ-
ity at A.H.S. -- four years of leadership, partici-
pation, and contribution. Working together as a
group, the seniors have tal-:en part in student ac-
tivitiesj they have made progress since their fresh-
man year in all phases of class development.
This class has set an example for Redskins to
follow in the years to come. As seniors, these
students have completed the tasks expected of
them, and they have achieved the goals they set
for themselves as freshmen. As class of achieve-
ment, the seniors look to greater tasks and new
goals. . .
Being the youngest class of the school in '54
didn't stop this class as freshmen from accomplish-
ing big things.
Forrest Suchey led the freshmen as president,
while Vicki Jo Gallagher served as vice -president
and Mildred Sevilla as secretary-treasurer.
The class participated in the Harvest Festival
parade by having a float depicting a huge Indian
head made of red and white crepe paper. Although
it took hard work, the finished product was gratify-
The social event of the year was the dance held
in the gyrrmasiurn. Red and white decorations added
to the festivity, and Barbara Cullen and Dick Meyer
were crowned king and queen.
The outstanding Freshmen Assembly was the talk
of the school because it presented the many and
varied talents hidden in the class.

. . . Making money, money, and more money was
the goal of the class as sophomores, and this goal
was certainly obtained. The project of the year
was a Christmas card sale. Many thanks go to Miss
Isabel Wiebelt for managing this project for the
Leading the sophomores was Fred Tiller. Dar-
lene Hocking was class "veep", and Charline
Compton served as secretary.
Again the class put on an assembly, which
won the praise of the school. For the Festival
parade, a covered wagon was the Class' float.
The slogan, "Graduation or Bust", has now be-
come a reality. . .
What a busy year the class had in '55 as juniors,
still being chiefly concerned with increasing
The officers of the junior year were Roy Vaughn,
president, Sue Benson, vice-president, and Ruth
The Fatival project this year was the raffling of
a blond cocker-spaniel puppy. The class presented
a variety show for its assembly, and the students re-
ceived their ' much-waited-for" class rings.
An annual project of the junior classes has been
giving a play. The '55 juniors chose as their pro-
duction, "Our Hears were Young and Gay .
As its tribute to the seniors, the class sponsored a
Junior-Senior Prom. The theme, 'Moments to Re-
member", was truly an appropriate one.

. . . Many tasks and duties come to any senior
class--taking measurements for caps and gowns,
having pictures taken, ordering announcements,
and planning for the big day--Graduation.
Besides taking care of these obligations, the
class has many other projects. The senior dunking
booth made quite a "splash" at the festival, along
with the raffling of two radios. For a float, the
seniors made a huge rocket ship of red and white
napkins, using the slogan, "Destination-Grad-
The Class of '57 also carried out tradition by
having a senior banquet and a special senior day.
. A QV., V
Four years of rushing to classes, writing research
papers, and yelling for the home team are climaxed
on Graduation Day with the principal's firm hand-
shake and the receipt of a roll of parchment.
Anticipation, excitement and the final reward
for achievement, mingled with feelings of regret at
leaving familiar scenes and faces, and some appre-
hension ofthe future are all a part of the graduate's
wandering mind as the speaker offers congratulations
and last minute advice.
The opportunities ahead are great. There will be
new friends and places, but the ones of high school
life will never be forgotten.

The Redslain Staff has been the production machine
for this, our 1957 yearbook.
This year we have several new features--division
pages, larger pictures for the seniors, individual pictures
for the upperclassmen, and four more pages. We also
devoted two pages to the queens and attendants who were
highlights of various social functions.
Editorial staff niernbers were selected from within the
journalism class, however the businws staff was assisted
by Miss Marguerite Burrus and students outside of class. I
During the year the class has organized files to aid the
staff in their work and to be of service to the school.

The newspaper staff is responsible for the writing, editing, and planning of page layouts for the RED-
SKIN ARROW, which is published monthly.
A new staff was selected at the beginning of each semester from members of the journalism class.
Gayle Romarine was fall editor and Gene Reneau is spring editor.
Although credit is given for class work, members of the staff spend much outside time in getting final
copy ready to meet press deadlines.
This year the class began sponsoring a Christmas story contest open to all high school students. This
year's winner, Margaret Radloff, won S5 worth of savings stamps, and had her story printed in the Christ-
mas issue of the REDSKIN ARROW.
The contest was begun to encourage all students to take more interest in writing and to give everyone
an opportunity to have their work printed. It is hoped that this will be an annual event.
The class also sold confetti at the Harvest Festival as a money-raising project.
Miss Lusk presents savings stamp award

contest winner. Jean Heller, sophomore,

Since 1950, the Business Education Department has offered office practice to its advanced students.
They are permitted to work in the school office one period every day taking dictation, learning tele-
phone etiquette, how to meet the public, typing miscellaneous materials, doing bookkeeping work,
and various office tasks. The girls receive one credit toward graduation for this work. We feel that a

Homemaking consists of family members working together as a team to create a happy home. A home is not
just a house, but a house where a family-father, mother, and children-live together harmoniously bringing forth the
good in each as a Lmique individual having inherent worth.
In such an environment democracy flourishes because things are planned, are shared, and are all evaluated
together. The areas of foods, clothing, consumer education, child development, housing, health and family re-
lationships are explored and expressed together.

The Spanish club, under the sponsorship of Miss Isabel Wiebelt, holds a treasure hunt in the spring
and initiation of new members at the beginning of each year.
At the treasure hunt directions are written in Spanish only, thus making a good knowledge of the
language a necessity.
For the Spanish club initiation, the initiates wear signs on their backs reading "Soy Chico Mico,"
meaning "I am a monkey boy," or "Soy Chica Mica," meaning "l am a monkey gir1," They are re-
quested to obtain a certain number of signatures from the principal, deans, teachers, custodians, and ex
Spanish students. When asked to do so, they must kneel and sing, "Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little
Dog Gone' in Spanish. The person with the most signatures is awarded a prize.

The ski Club is under the direction of Mr. George Meyers and Mr. Clinton Gregg.
One of the activities of the Ski club was a trip to Cooper Hill. A bus was chartered for a Sunday in
February. The club left at '7 a.m. with twenty-six members, two sponsors, and a few visitors.
The day was very enjoyable except for a few casualties such as a back out of place, sprained ankles,
and the most common were sun -burned faces.
One of the skiers skis slid down the slop. In a few minutes Mr. Gregg retumed with a ski which
turned out to be another man's and was too big. Later Mr. Meyers found the run-away ski next to a tree,
broken in two.

The Redskins football squad met defeat this year, but
as they were using a new form of football, single wing
plays, they pioneered a new threat to the Central Suburban
League. From their first game with Regis to their last one
with Golden, definite improvement was seen. Their new
head coach, Nh. James Dalthorp, led them through the
1956 season introducing new tactics for a stronger team.
Don Meyers and Roy Vaughn were elected to the sec-
ond all-conference team. At the end of the season the
team elected Roy Vaughn captain.

The Redskin basketball squad was lead by two
new coaches this year. Coach Bob Lyons was
head coach and Jim Dalthorp coached the "B"
squad. The squad really played hard and even
though they did not win all the games, they
proved a menace to the teams of the Central
Suburban League. Injuries cause a definite
crippling effect on the Redskins but still their
strength was replenished by members in the "B"

Wrestling coach Tom Nicholls has
really been having a field day the past

The league has handed him two cham-
pionships in successions.
It is evident that the superior training
and material that Arvada High school
offers is the foundation of their victories.
No team in the Central High school
league has marched the powerful matmen
this year. The Redskins placed third in
state and first in the Central Suburban
League, and first in the Lafayette touma-

The Redskin Crosscountry team gained sixth place title at the state meet
Boulder this year and placed second in the Central Suburban League.
The team was coached by Mr. Robert Fatzinger. His opinion of the boys
was "I think we have a very select group of boys in high school." This state
ment is backed by the outstanding record they have gained this year.
There were eleven boys out for the sport which is now gaining recognition
as an important high school sport.
