This is our school. Here we face problems and learn to solve
them as we must shortly face and solve the problems of life.
Here we are taught the essentials of good citizenship and how
to apply them. It is here that we are prepared to face the future,
be it one of War or one of peace.
In this year, 1944, many of our closest friends
have been taken from their classes to go into
one of the armed forces of the United States.
But war cannot go on forever. One day soon
our allie s and We will emerge from this struggle,
victorious. The years that follow victory will
show unbelievable progress. We all look for-
ward to these years with confidence. What
theme for this book could be more appropriate
than TOMORROW, an age of greater develop-
mem, the AIR AGE?

To the men and women in our armed forces this
Pohob is dedicated, for it is they who are giving all
to secure a future in which peace and freedom are
rights of every human being. They are the men and
women who are working, fighting, and enduring un-
believable hardships so that both they and we here
at home may, when victory is ours, have all the
opportunities and privileges that are part of a true
democracy. Victory will bring a world far different
from the one we have known, a world in which the
airplane will not be a luxury enjoyed by a few, but
a means of transportation as vital to our existence
as is the automobile today. The men and women
now in the various services of our country will have
a definite place in the AIR AGE. Knowing that such
courageous warriors will be the leaders in post-war
America, and confident that they will be no less
courageous in peace-time activities, we are surely
justified in facing the future with a great optimism.

MR. GEORGE L. TURCOTT, Principal.
Any institution, to be successful, must have a superior
leader. We, the students of Elko County High School,
look to our principal, Mr. George L. Turcott. It is he
who most ably shows us where and how to distribute
our energies so that we may gain the utmost from
our education, and it is he who maintains our most
efficient school organization.
These three, Mrs. Stout, Mr. Gennette, and Mr. Agee
Knot picturedl, have served on the board oi education
for two years. Their job is a hard one, but in this time
they have proved themselves Well qualified, efficient,
understanding, and considerate. We are indeed for-
tunate to have such a capable group to guide us
in that most important undertaking, our secondary

The annual Harvest Ball, which usually is sponsored
jointly by the Fireside Circle and the Future Farmers
of America, was this year handled by the Fireside
Circle girls alone since there is no longer an F.F.A.
chapter at Elko High. Making the arrangements for
one of our largest dances is noteasy task, but the
girls drafted a few senior boys for the heavy work
and proved themselves capable of handling the Ball
most efficiently. Each class elected a candidate for
Queen of the Harvest Ball. These included the senior
candidate, Ruth Hulery tnot picturedl: junior candi-
date, Yvonne Sansinenap sophomore candidate, Ruth
Merrian, and Doris Quilici, freshman candidate. Doris
afforded the freshmen their first claim to glory by
winning the election and making a gracious Queen.
Charles Evans, our student body president, placed
the crown upon her head.
The Elko High School Band this year accomplished
a great deal. Mr. Cluff, director, was a new member
of the faculty last September, but he and his musi-
cians soon became well acquainted. Their first large-
scale performance was the annual Thanksgiving
Festival. All the band members pitched in and
Worked out a program never before equalled in our
school. They presented a "Music for Morale" concert
and Mid-Season and Spring concerts, all very Well
received by the townspeople. Officers for the year
were the band manager, Don Fields, and secretary-
treasurer, loan Reinhart. This organization has every
reason for anticipating an enjoyable and fruitful year

At Christmas an approprieate program was given

the music department, the orchestra appeared on the

The vocal groups of the music department concluded
one of their most interesting and eventful seasons at
the close of the l943-44 school year. The Boys' Glee
gave several noteworthy performances during the
year. Likewise, the Girls' Glee, with a number of
important appearances to their credit, did much to
add to the musical activities of the year. This group
showed its versatility by commendably performing
all types of vocal music, popular as well as serious.
President of the Boys' Glee was lack Sullivan, while
the Girls' Glee chose Bessie Hutchinson as their
executive officer. By combining these two groups,
Ms. Cluff was able to have a splendid Mixed Chorus
which performed for the Christmas program, the
"Music for Morale" concert and the Spring concert.

faith in them.
Elko 33 - Las Vegas 30
In the first game of the state tournament
at Carson City, the powerful Elko In-
dians met the strong Southern Zone
champions from Las Vegas. This was a
thrilling game and the winner was not
apparent until the final whistle had

dians made a basket, winning the game.

squad, the Indians entered the final fight

vich, sensational Reno guard, sank two

The freshmen entered Elko High last fall very timid, retiring, and just a little
frightened. However, on "Field Day," they gave the sophomores a run for their
money and almost got even for the hazing given them by the sophs. Then
came the Harvest Ball, and freshman candidate Doris Quilici was elected
Queen, giving this class its first claim to recognition. But that wasn't alll ln
two interclass basketball games the freshmen were victorious over their arch-
enemies, the sophomores. They held their class party in the gym and had a
wonderful time. These boys and girls are waiting only for next year when
they will make it difficult for another first-year class. Officers were Harold
Fields, president: Bud Getz, vice-presidentg Shirley Combs, treasurer: and Alta

Last year this class graduated-from freshmen to
sophomores-and began to fit into and become a real
part of Elko High. They held their class party in the
gym Where they danced, played games, and made
short work of the refreshments. The freshmen beat
them in interclass basketball, but this was only fair
after "Field Day." The sophomores were well repre-
sented in all school activities. Their officers were Alyn
Brennen, president: Alvin McCuisition, vice-president:
and Iune Davidson, secretary-treasurer. The class of
'45 will long remember this year.

The class of '45 is an outstanding one, and was well represented in all stude
body activities. lts interclass basketball team came close to winning the cu
but the seniors nosed them out by a narrow margin. The Iunior Prom, held 1
April 15th, was one of the most impressive ever seen at Elko High. Theme 1
the Prom was "Winter Wonderland." The class also produced a number
unknown thespians when the junior play, "No Mind of Her Own," was p1
sented. This hilarious comedy was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, and tl
class is looking forward to their senior play .... Unfortunately, the class
'45 is gradually becoming smaller. Next year many of the boys will be forct
to leave for the service, and lack Hull, class president, will graduate with tl
class of '44. We wish them all a great deal of luck .... Accomplishments dl
ing the year were largely due to the untiring efforts of class officers: lack Hu
president: Max Wignall, vice-presidentp and Alice Gabiola, secretary-treasure

The seniors began their year with a Well-planned
"Get-together Dance." Next came the senior play,
"Three Cornered Moon," directed by Mr. Brome. Nine
seniors took part in it and kept the audience howling
with laughter throughout. The senior assembly staged
by the class was a "wow," Its title, "l-lellzapoppin, Ir.",
was appropriate, though "Ir." may be an understate-
ment. For the third consecutive year the interclass
basketball championship tell to the class of '44, giv-
ing them permanent possession of the trophy. The
Senior Ball surpassed even the Iunior Prom, or so
the seniors say. Efficient officers led the class. They
were: lack McCulloch, president, Robert Pearce, vice-
presidentp Barbara Bardsley, secretary Cnot picturedl:
and Beth Iind, treasurer.

We, the Senior Class, wish to extend our sincere
gratitude to our principal, the faculty, and the Elko
County Board of Education for the priceless knowl-
edge which they have made available to us. We feel
that we are better prepared to meet the ever-occurring
trials and tribulations of everyday life complacently
and intelligently from this day on .... lt is with a
better understanding of Americanism, good fellow-
ship, and sportsmanlike conduct that we bid farewell
to our beloved school and pass on to the remaining
classes our feeling of affection and loyalty.
Senior Class President.
