Sixth Form History
This Sixth-Form history is not going to be
one of those sentimental records which start
out, "There were three of us in the beginning."
Instead this history will review our last year at
Fountain Valley and attempt to show the part
that each person has contributed toward that
integral known as the Sixth Form.
The class of l954 has had as busy and active
a year as any in the school's history and has
had representatives in every activity available.
Each new opportunity for participation and
oftentimes hard work has been accepted as a
challenge by one group or another in the Form.
Student government, publications, sports, and
other extra-curricular Helds have given us great
pleasure and at times taken the sweat of our
brows. One field in which the Form has excel-
led, indeed the most important Held, is studies.
The class has done consistently well with Rory
Cross and Robert DeJong leading the way.
The Student Council, with Sam Silverstein
as President and Dave Davis and Pete Verstap-
pen as the other Senior members has done a fine
job, taking a great deal of responsibility and
using it effectively. With Mr. Poor's help and
-Sam's leadership, much has been accomplished
in the direction of better faculty-student un-
derstanding and effective student government.
The Sixth Form is not composed of athletes,
and representation on teams has not been large.
Most of the boys in the Form, however, have
earned a letter. Bill Schmid and Bob Rahm,
probably the Forms two best athletes, have
been relatively inactive sportwise this year,
though both have been ardent supporters of the
various squads and have arranged all the athletic
receptions. B.ll has performed just as brilliantly
on the stage in Mr. Kitson's Pinafore as he did
in former days on the football Held and hockey
rink. "Bubba" Rahm, no mean man with the
squash racquet as his winning of the school tour-
nament indicates, has carried on the family tra-
dition as Chairman of the Dance Committee by
producing rand they are productionsj, with
the assistance of Sixth-Form members Schmid
and John l-laldeman, outstanding dances to be
long remembered. lncidentally, "The Hoop"
l-laldeman, as captain of the basketball team, is
destined for immortality as one of the highest
scorers in the school's history.
Publications have taken on new life and have
been extremely active. Bryant Barnard, fearless
editor of the Viking, has turned out a top-notch
newspaper every third week, with assistance
from Sixth Formers Dan "Tex" Benson, David
"Dormouse" Davis, Sam "The Man" Silver-
stein, Peter "Rabbit" Mitchell, Erich "The
Swiss" Bucherer, and Managing Editor Rory
'iSheepherder" Cross. Benson, an amazingly
good humored and witty Texan, has also done
a tremendous job as President of the Glee Club
and Yearbook Sports Editor. Rory Cross has
been our scholar during his stay here and has
also been most studious and conscientious in
dumping opposing linemen who bothered him.
Tom Lehman played a scrappy game at
guard with Cross for the basketball team and
has the distinction taccording to his own
wordsj of being our only six-year man and a
product of that tourists' paradise, Colorado
Springs. Erich Bucherer, on the other hand,
hails all the way from Switzerland. Erich has
proved himself invaluable as an artist, doing
most of the art work for the dances and the
operetta, On the football field "The Swiss"
demonstrated that he was no pacifist, playing a
rough line game. Our other representative from
Europe, Robert deJong, embarrassed us all
when we discovered that "Dutchy" was getting
consistantly better grades than most of us in
everything, including our so-called mother
Leslie Alex Rivvy Magruder is Tom Leh-
man's fellow Pikes-Peakan and is generally
conceded to be the Porm's fix-it-man. Magrud-
er's room has been stark evidence of this fact,
for it is filled with a strange assortment of odd-
shaped boxes. Peter "The Rabbit" Mitchell has
played football, been a member of that exalted
body known as the dorm committee, and sung
in the glee club and operetta -e all with equal
ability in this, his Sixth-Form, year. Andy An-
derson, on the other hand, cannot sing a note
but is renowned as a traveller of wide repute.
As a nimblefingered end Andy did a consider-
able amount of travelling with a pfgskin satchel
Bill Fairburn has done a hne job as one of
the Senior Proctors and has managed the foot-
ball and hockey teams efiiciently. Dave Dornan,
Prexy of the Mountain Club, has led that or-
ganization to previously unattained heights.
Dave is also the Porm's photographic historian
and has done an excellent job as Yearbook Pho-
tography Editor. Pete Verstappen, Editor of
the Yearbook, has also been a fine Proctor. Pe:
Vee was the Porm's sole backfield representa-
tive in that gentlemen's sport, football. Dave
Davis, Assistant Editor of the Yearbook, has
had his Hnger in as many pies as there are inches

in his height. As singer, newspaper and years
book man, Student Council member, co-cap-
tain of hockey, and avid supporter of the vir-
tues of Nlanhattan Island, Dave has done more
than his part in making the Sixth Form both
a constructive and a happy group. And finally
there is "The Man!" Although a denizen of
Davis's pet hate, Long Island, Student Council
boss Sam has been the one around whom the
Form has united and with whom it has worked
on the stage, in the gym, at many meetings and
bull sessions. and in various classrooms to make
the year 1953-54 a memorable one in Fountain
The Form's leisure time, what little there
was, centered around the Common Room,
where at any given moment Barney could be
found cleaning up and dissertations on the
home-town, school, sports, and McCarthy
could be heard in that order. The Sixth Form
this year has been as varied and hard-working
a group as any in the school's history, and it
has led the school through a successful year.

The Student Council
A student council that is efficient, well or-
ganized, and willing to listen objectively and
intelligently to both the ideas of the students
and the wishes of the faculty can create a good
feeling and co-operative atmosphere that make
a school a fine place in which to be and a
place that the students and faculty alike can be
proud of. It can create an atmosphere in which
the students and faculty work together with a
thorough understanding of the feeling and
wishes of one another.
Our student government is an organization
which through its varied responsibilities is of
assistance to both the faculty and the students.
There are times, of course, when because of in-
experience the Council flounders and needs help,
but for the most part it is a clear-thinking and
objective group. Objectivity is a word that
probably ought to be framed on the walls of
the meeting place of every deliberative body in
the world, for it is a word that sums up all the
qualities that such an organization should pos-
sess. Our Student Council is and must always
be a deliberative organization the effectiveness
of which depends upon its ability to see both
sides of a question and then to decide upon the
best solution by determining that which is best
for all. Should a student council once lose sight
of this aim, then it is no longer of any effecf
tiven-ess or usefulness: rather it becomes a privi-
lege-gaining body with popularity its primary
In order to be part of a really objective or-
ganization, each member must have the courage
to stand by his convictions, In order to be ob-
jective, he must be willing to uphold the right
side, not necessarily the popular side. This
courage, this conviction, and this objectivity to-
gether with interested and capable oficers are
the things that go far towards making a coun-
cil that is resourceful, successful, and respected.
This year's Student Council has endeavored to
combine all these qualities. Furthermore, the
Council's effectiveness has been due to a large
extent to the support given the Council by its
ex-oflicio member, Mr, Poor, and to the work
done by preceding Councils. Mr. Poor's help
proved an invaluable asset at the beginning of
the year when the Council first gathered with
Mr. Poor to discuss the school's basic policies
for the year. But as the Council began to func-
tion, it found that there were many things that
tradition or previous experience could not do
for it. Many moves made at this time were not-
able either for the most prudent judgment or
for the opposite: but the Council seemed to
come out of each success or mistake with the
same will and determination, sometimes over-
zealous and sometimes a bit hesitant but al-
ways confident that it would receive the sup-
port of the student body.
The best way to summarize the Councils
year seems to be to discuss briefly the three
most important accomplishments of the Student
Council. The first and probably the most im-
portant is the starting of Inter-Council meet-
ings among the schools in the Colorado Springs
area. The main purpose of these meetings was
two-fold: to improve inter-school relations and
to learn something about the other councils and
their operational procedures. These meetings
were in no way "a formal body deliberating in
order to solve the weighty problems of the
world" but merely informal get-togethers to
discuss common problems. The second achieve-
ment of this year's Student Council is the re-
vision of the constitution. As it was at the
beginning of the year, the constitution con-
tained too many ambiguous statements. This
fact is in no way a criticism of the work of the
Councils that have gone before, for without
their help the 1953-54 Council might have
been starting from scratch instead of amending
and revising. Third, the Council, with Mr.
Brown's help, has worked out a system for us-
ing the profits of the school store. The store
fixes a budget at the beginning of the year,
based upon an estimate of its earning power.
The store surplus then makes up the deficit in-
curred by such activities as the operetta and the
gymkhana. Anything that the store makes
above the budgeted amount will be declared a
school dividend, and a vote will be taken of
the student body to decide for which of the
projects submitted by the Student Council the
extra money shall be used.
The boys comprising this year's Council
were by no means a stereotyped group: they
were a group of free-thinking individuals whose
dilfering viewpoints served to equalize one an-
other until a final agreement was reached. First
there was the President, Sam Silverstein, whose
leadership and drive made the Council the or-
ganization that it was. His steadfastness of
principles and his stabilizing influence set a high
standard for the Council and Councils to come.
David Davis and Peter Verstappen were the
other Sixth-Form members of the Council, and
their aid was invaluable at all times. Davis al-
ways seemed to express the liberal point of
view, while Verstappen, the most able writer
in the group, composed and worded the more
diflicult resolutions. From the Fifth Form John
Crawford and Deric Hopkins expressed the
ideas of the lower forms, and Hugh Knapp in
the Fourth Form seemed always capable of pre-
senting the conservative opinion.
The enormous amount of Work and respon-
sibility that the Council has done and taken is
apparent. Through its drive and initiative the
Council has earned the respect of all: for it has
aimed high and chieved many of its main goals,
especially the most important of all - better
understanding between faculty and students.

This year the Fountain Valley Viking made
its first appearance on the campus. The paper
was new in name only, as its old name The
Dane was dropped. At the start of the year
there was no organized staff, and the first is-
sue was written and put out by a group of boys
who were interested in newspaper work. Most
of these boys had helped last year's editor Hen-
ry Wise. It is to him that the school really
owes thanks for having a paper, for it was his
personal efforts which were responsible for the
firm basis on which the paper started this year.
ln choosing writers, the editor, Bryant Bar-
nard, tried to pick lower formers who were real-
ly interested in the paper. lt is hoped that this
policy will leave next year's staff with many ex-
perienced members. Even if a boy has done only
typing, he will be ready to take over a large
part of the work next year.
The staff worked hard and well. Rory Cross,
the managing editor, took over the job of print-
ing and distributing the paper, while Darryl
Thatcher supervised the typing. Dan Benson
did a fine job as sports editor, Erich Bucherer
illustrated most of the issues and wrote a series
of interesting articles about places in Europe,
and the other members of the staff contributed
a great deal of time and effort.
The main aim of the Viking this year was
to provide a record of school life and of hap-
penings of interest connected with the school.
In this aim the paper was generally successful.
This year the Viking seems to have become
Hrmly established, and it has proved of great
value to the staff, for it has provided an op-
portunity for each member to become part of
a worthwhile activity and at the same time to
learn something about newspaper work. Next
year's stall' will still have much to do, but it
should have a successful year.

The Yearbook this year is considerably
changed from the books of years past. The staff
has been able to put the book on a self-sup-
porting basis, and this achievement is a big step
forward, for it not only gives the Yearbook
board a sense of pride but also means that the
staff has met a stimulating challenge in business
administration. Thanks to Dave Dornan and
his helpers, there are many more pictures in
the book than there were in previous ones. The
editors feel that the merit of a yearbook de-
pends to a greater extent upon the pictures
found in the book: and pursuing this policy,
they have attempted to present a pictorial as well
as written history of a most successful school
Editor-in-Chief Peter Verstappen, with Dav-
id Davis as Assistant Editor, has tried to im-
prove the book in all respects. Dan Benson.
Sports Editor, has contributed much towards
this aim with his graphic sports write-ups. In
this respect, it will be noticed that the Yearbook
has not attempted to play down those things
which remained unfulfilled this year. Instead
failings and defeats have been presented in a
positive light as lessons for the future.
Another new feature of this year's book is a
sixteen-page supplement to be inserted in the
envelope at the back of the book. The supple-
ment will be published sometime in July and
mailed to each book owner. lt affords the Year-
book staff the opportunity to provide coverage
of the entire year.
This year the staff has utilized the services
of many lower formers with literary, business,
or photographic ability. Thus an experienced
nucleus for coming years has been formed. Un-
doubtedly, they will make many mistakes just
as this year's board has, notwithstanding the
good example of previous years' staffs and
wonderful faculty co-operation.

THE GlLlElE CLUB AND THE OPlElRETlFA
Music at Fountain Valley reached new helgh.s
this year through the activities of both the Culee
Club and the operetta cast, the two organiza-
tions being under the capable direction of Mr.
Ernest Kitson, Head of the Music Department.
The Glee Club, a long standing tradition at
the school, is chosen each year from those boys
who are able to pass Mr. Kitson's most thor-
ough music examinations given in the fall. This
year the Glee Club was fortunate in having a
great many boys among its ranks, one of the
largest turnouts in years.
The group presented its first concert to the
faculty, student body, and guests in in eve-
ning performance at the Hacienda on Novem-
The Glee Club now began to prepare fever-
ishly for the coming Christmas Carol Service,
an annual and always well-received affair at
Fountain Valley. The Carol Service is given
the Sunday afternoon before Christmas vacation
begins and replaces the usual evening Vesper
Service. Assisted by six ladies of the Faculty as
well as ten other Altos and Sopranos who were
not regular members of the organization, the
Glee Club rendered eleven traditional selections.
The following Monday the Glee Club ap-
peared over KRDO-TV for a fifteen-minute
carol program featuring selections from the
With the opening of school for the NVinter
Term in January, the cast of the operetta was
chosen. This year the school presented H.M.S.
Pinafore by Gilbert E5 Sullivan, a comedy of
errors about the British Navy. Singers from the
Colorado Springs area assisted the school cast
in the production. The Right Honorable Sir
Joseph Porter was sung by Mr. Frank K. Per-
kins, Captain Corcoran by William L. Schmid,
Ralph Rackstraw by Mr. Wesley Sell. Dick
Deadeye by Darryl Thatcher, the Boatswain
by Mr. Francis Dibble, the Boatswain's Mate
by Daniel Benson, Buttercup by Mrs. Collette
Schreiner, Josephine by Miss Jo Jean Kepler
and Hebe by Mrs. Reginald Burgert. As in all
school musicals, Mrs. Verda Lawrie was the ac-
The plot of the story, though quite impossi-
ble from the standpoint of reason, is delightful
to contemplate and augmented as it was by
wonderful singing proved most enjoyable to
Two radio stations recorded the production
as it was given in the Old Gym and one of
these recordings was broadcast to the public at
a subsequent date. For the Hrst time since the
school has presented its operettas on campus
there was an overflow crowd in attendance nec-
essitating two performances. The first of these
performances was given Tuesday night, March
9, and the second the following evening.
Mr. Kitson expressed his belief that the op-
eretta was a great success from the standpoint
of the cast as well as the audience. An extra-
ordinarily fine job of staging was performed
by Sam Silverstein and his more than compe-
tent crew. A second contributing factor to the
success of the operetta was the rather obvious
enjoyment that the cast derived from present-
ing the production. After the Wednesday per-
formance a reception was given in the Hacienda
living room for cast and audience.

THE DANCE COMMITTEE
The l953-54 dances were highly successful,
as many a fourth, fifth, and sixth former can
testify. Because we are a boarding school we
have the universal problem of all boarding
schools during dance time: we have to import
the girls. The result is that a week or so
before the forthcoming dance, the written word
flashes about the countryside with amazing
Also, had it not been for Bob Rahm and his
committee there wouldn't have been any dances
at all. For the fall dance "Bob" employed a sen-
sational "south of the border" theme and the
skit in which Sam and Barney sported was
wonderful. Preceding the winter dance enthus-
iasm was at first difficult to muster, but Bob
and his crew Went to work on the student
body, and on February 20th another dance suc-
cess Was held. The theme was the sea -mobile
fish, and all, thanks to Eric Bucherer and John

excelled. The hopes for the spring dance are
high and we are all sure that the Danc-e Com-
mittee will not disappoint us.

The Varsity Club
The Fountain Valley Varsity Club, an or-
ganization of the outstanding athletes, this
year under President Bill Schmid's guidance,
took over two new duties. It organized and su-
pervised the receptions given after all home
athletic contests and thus was of great help to
the school and to the betterment of interschool
relations. Second, the club attempted to solve
the inevitable problem of returning lost articles
to their owners by its sleuthsome lost-and-found
department. This duty brought many a nickel
tthe penalty levied on careless ownersj into the
V Club coffers. The case of the unclaimed red
flannels flaunted before all in evening meeting
will long be remembered.
In addition to carrying out these new duties.
the Varsity Club continued to confer with the
coaches on the awarding of letters. and V Club
members were in evidence at all athletic con-
tests leading enthusiastic spectators in support
of the Dane teams.

The Store Committe
The Store Committee this year was of great
value to the students. It provided money for the
various student projectsg and it provided the
students with most of the commodities they de-
sired, such as school supplies, toilet articles, and
- of course - candy and pop!
Dave Webster headed the committee this
year and performed an outstanding job of
management. 'Through the committee's initia-
tive many new products plus an excellent photo-
hnishing service were introduced. A new, simp-
lifred monetary system was set up, based on two
At one time or another most boys at school
felt unappreciative of the committee and its
members. These occasions invariably arose
when someone had to wait ten minutes for the
store to open or when it was necessary to send
a delegation to the room of a sleeping member
and gently request him Qby dumping his bed
and applying a cold washcloth to his facej to
open the store. These occasions were soon for-
gotten, however: and this year's students felt a
healthy pride in the store and its management,

The 1953 Fountain Valley Danes ended the
season with three wins and four losses. The
team's major victory was attained while off the
playing field with the strict observance of all
t1'aining rules and fine team spirit throughout
The 1953 Danes were small in number and
inexperienced with only three returning letter-
men. In spite of these disadvantages, however,
Fountain Valley's Danes made a good showing
at each game and established a fair record for
We lost our first game of the season here at
school in a nineteen to six scrap with Central
"B" of Pueblo, with Pete Verstappen making
the sole tally. In the next contest, however, the
Danes began to build scores rather than char-
acter, and we downed Colorado Military Acad-
emy twenty-six to nothing at Denver, with
Deric Hopkins hitting pay dirt twice along with
teammates Uhl and McMillan. Rory Cross
recovered a fumble in C.M.A.'s end zone for
an extra point, and in so-doing became the only
Fountain Valley lineman to score all year.
Disaster was to come again within a week for
the Danes, though, and we were frozen out just
as much by the score as by the weather, which
was a bitter-cold drizzle, by Manitou Springs.
Canon City "B" came to the valley the fol-
lowing week. NVe won the game and were for-
tunate in having a victory to fall back on, for
the next week we met the Abbey Golden Bears.
In keeping with an old F.V.S. tradition, the
Danes were mauled most thoroughly by the
Abbeyg however, the team was lauded off the
Held for this was their best game of the season.
While recovering from the Abbey, the Coloe
rado Springs terrors rolled over us. ln our final
game of the season we met the Deaf and Blind
and we were able to rack up a win.
Rory Cross and Deric Hopkins were the
mainstays of the Fountain Valley eleven. The
boys, co-captains, did remarkable jobs throught-
out the 1953 season, and sparked the team on
during every game, though at times the Danes
stood in need of a lightning bolt rather than a
Other outstanding ground-gainers were Pete
Verstappen and Chuck Hall, both boys scoring
with their hard-driving runs and accurate passes.
Senior ends Travis Anderson and John Hal-
deman were also factors in our offense. Peter
Mitchell was our strong-man along with Co-
captain Cross in the line and both did outstand-
ing jobs of "staying" at crucial times.
For the first time in quite a while, the Dane
version of an on-sides kick paid off on several
occasions during the season. Notable in this de-
partment was "toe" McMillan who certainly
booted his share of the goals. Another play
which clicked often after virtual retirement was
a pass from Verstappen to Anderson with a
lateral to Hopkins for the tally.
A unique feature of the squad was the Eric
Bucherer-Bob deJong duo. Both boys, Eric
from Switzerland and Bob from Holland, had
never seen a football game before playing in
their first one here at F.V.S. The boys were
eager to learn and by the middle of the season
had mastered their line jobs. Pew boys on the
1953 squad will forget Eric's comment as
Coach Dibble explained the intracacies of de-
fensive play: "Can I gad him with my hands?"
The main weakness of the Danes seemed to
be in the department of running interference
for ball carriers, and in defensive tackling. The
runner. nine times out of nine, was strictly on
his own, and the Danes paid for such strategy.
All of us agree, however, that the 1953 season
was enjoyed by everyone.
At the conclusion of the final game, a new
tradition was inaugurated. This fine demonstra-
tion of youthful enthusiasm is known as "coach
dunkingf' and While most people named Mr.
Dibblc and Mr. Newman frown on such prac-
tices, the tradition is now firmly established
in the hearts of Fountain Valley teams.
Our thanks to these men who coached us.

casion. We wish them success in years to come.

The l953 Pup football team, while its won-
and-lost record was not good, had a profitable
season learning really to play the game. The
Pups won one game, tied one, and lost four.
After losing the first game 32-0 to the Colorado
Springs High School Terror "Cs," the Pup
eleven tied Limon 7-7. The highlights of that
game were a touchdown by Bill Pierpoint and
some excellent blocking by Tommy Griffin.
Next the Pups gained their only win 13'-7 over
one Young-America team, the Redskins, and
then found themselves completely outclassed by
another Young-America outfit, the Blue Devils,
that won by seven touchdowns. In the Redskin
game a thrilling seventy-yard run by Bill
Hughes set up one F. V. tally. In the last two
games the scores were close: but the Pups
could not rack up another win, losing to the
Young-America All-Stars 7-0 and to the Gra-
land School of Denver 20-7. The Pups would
like to express their appreciation to Mr. Quin-
tana and Mr. Perkins whose coaching helped
them to improve continuously.

In the fall soccer was introduced as a sport.
Coached by Mr. Palmer, this new athletic ac-
tivity proved very popularg and although only
three or four boys on the squad of twenty-ive
had ever played the game before, the team de-
veloped rapidly. When the Danes scrimmaged
the Colorado College soccer team, the scores
were close, C.C. winning the Hrst 4-0 and the
other two 3-1. Both the Colorado College
coach and Mr. Palmer were very much sur-
prised by the calibre of the competition P.V.S.
showed against C.C. The two Dane scores mad?
in the scrimmages were tallied by Ken Fung
and Clark Smith. Toward the end of the season
the boys on the squad under sixteen played the
Emmaus Lutheran School of Denver and won
handily 6-l with Clark Smith scoring five goals
and Don Rydstrom the other.
In addition to C. Smith, the first-string for-
wards were Mike Collins, Cyril Fung, Ken
Fung, and Craig Johnson. The starting half-
backs were John Crawford, Chris Fung, and
Morgan Smith, while Johnny Hoyt, the sub-
stitute center half, was regarded by Mr. Pal-
mer as the most promising younger player he
had ever coached. The defensive trio of Tom
Lehman and Dave Webster at the fullback posts
and Jake Schoellkopf in the goal was the key
to the Danes' success in holding down the C.C.
At the end of the season the booters chose
David Webster as captain for the year. With
only one senior on the squad, the players are
looking forward to the next year and are eager
for soccer to become a major sport at Fountain

Basketball at Fountain Valley was good but
could have been better. Gamewise, we won six.
and dropped eleven, including the infamous
Varsity-Faculty contest about which later com-
ment will be expended. Of the six wins that the
Danes chalked up, four were on home ground
which was to be expected. The courtmen
seemed to be at their best when working in the
new gym that was put into service for the Hrst
time during 1953-54 season. Everyone enjoyed
the new gym and it has become a school show-
The first game of the season was with St.
Mary's School: the score was 41 to 54. Our
side of the scoreboard sported the 41. The
Danes looked a little unsure of them-
selves on prima facie evidence but agreeably sur-
prised all of us in their next game as they de-
feated Cheyenne 42 to 39. The next two
games were beginning to make things look up
to the tune of 64-22 over C.M.A. and 52-49
over Woodland Park when the Danes crashed
into Cheyenne for the second time. We emerged
from that one on the bad side of a 35-50 tally.
Many of us share the opinion that there was
a little too much Christmas vacation between
the Woodland Park game and the second Chey-
enne clash, an opinion that, in part, accounts
for such a score.
C.M.A. again capitulated as did D. 'Ed B.
under the Dane's attack and then the "depres-
sion" hit. The two contests gave the Danes
their last taste of victory for many grim weeks.
Fountain Valley went into a post vacation
slump and lost to Canon City 43-46. The
Danes then fell into a mid-season decline and
lost to the Terrors, Manitou, Fountain, Den-
ver Christian, and St. Mary's. We graciously
delete the scores of said games. After the mid-
season decline F.V.S. was plagued by a pre-va-
cation slack period losing to Manitou, Denver
Christian, and alas, the faculty. The Colorado
School for the Deaf and Blind engaged us on
the second day of March and We were able to re-
gain a, bit of prestige by defeating them 55 to
32. At this point, the season was drawn to a
Members of the team expressed the opinion
that our best two games were the first game
with Cheyenne which we won and the first
game with Manitou. lt is rather interesting to
note that we lost the Manitou game in ques-
tion, and yet the boys felt that the quality of
play and sportsmanship was sufhcient to justify
listing it as one of the better games.
In the opinion of Captain John Haldeman
a great deal of our dificulty was due to loose
defensive play with weak rebounding playing a
prominent role. On foul shooting, the Danes
were quite proncient with well ov-er fifty per-
cent of our points secured in this manner.
Captain Haldeman was the high score king
of the season with 225, a new record for
Fountain Valley courtmen. John also estab-
lished a court record in the last game of the
season with D. 'EG B. ln the words of Kenny
Fung, "Go, crazy man, go," is an applicable ex-
pression of Haldeman's work. Second on scor-
ing was Guard John Crawford. After "Long
John" and "Large John" comes Craig Johnson
to occupy third place honors. The fireball of
the team, Tom Lehman, specialized in closeup
work around the backboards and was constant-
ly scurrying between the legs of his taller op-
ponents, much to their consternation, to escape
with the ball. Rory Cross shared the position
of guard with Lehman and, as any opponent
will tell you, presented a formidable obstacle to
passing and scoring. Cyril Fung was this year.
and certainly will be next year, a scrappy and
effective man in forward position and accounted
for his position in a sinister manner.
The two most interesting points of the seas-
on were, for the school as a whole, the Faculty
game, and for the team, the last Denver Chris-
tian game at Denver. Now this Faculty team
was a real threat to the Varsity, although no
one ever suspected the fact, and defeated them
soundly. Our Headmaster was a dark horse and
proved to be a fireball for the opening moments
of the game, but soon tired. Many present the-
orized that lack of training caused this break-
down. The Denver Christian sports contest was
not the interesting factor of said excursion.
Rather the hospitable attention shown the team
such as refreshments, pennants, and girls, were
the memorable factors. Everyone came home
happy from the game.
The thanks of the entire team as well as the
school as a whole go to Coach Dibble for his
long and able work in developing the team,
and to Jack Underhill and Chuck Woodhouse,
managers. Yes, "coach dunking" thrived in
Basketball as it did in football.

This year the hockey team did not win a
single game, but the very fact that there was a
team at all is a credit to the coaches and to the
players themselves. At the beginning of the
season the world's greatest optimist would have
expressed doubts as to Fountain Valley's put-
ting boys on the ice at ally for there were only
three returning varsity men: Dave Davis, Deric
Hopkins, and Bill Schmid. Unfortunately Hop-
py and Schmid were soon sidelined for the
season as the result of old injuries. Hopkins
gave up his captaincy to Dave Davis and Steve
Hart and took over instead the coaching of the
As the season went on, the boys improved
steadily, under the able coaching of "Doc"
Romnes, assisted by Mr. Palmer, first becoming
sure skaters, then scrappy puckst-ers, and inally
members of a team. Steve Hart played an out-
standing game in the nets all season and won
the "Player of the Year" Award given by the
Colorado Springs Quarterback Club, an honor
that he richly deserved for his good play, hard
work, and fine sportsmanship. Dave Webster.
the other goal-tender, showed great ability too
when subbing for Steve, who was hampered by
injuries during the latter part of the season.
Mike Collins, Clark Smith, and Alva Uhl did
a grand job as the F. V. Danes' first forward
line, while Dave Forman, Whit Galbraith, and
Tommy Griflin combined to form a good sec-
ond attack line. Dave Davis, Bill Pierpoint, and
Morgan Smith meanwhile developed rapidly
into able defencemen.
At the sports banquet at the end of the Win-
ter season, Dave Davis summarized the hockey
season for the assembled group by saying, "In
spite of the fact that we never won a single
contest, there was always the will to win and
the drive to play a hard game. Team spirit was
just as high before a game which we realized
we had little chance of winning as it was be-
fore a practice session." At the banquet a new
award was presented. The "Doc Romnes Tro-
phy" was given to Morgan Smith. This award
is to be an annual one made to the member of
the team who most nearly approaches the high
standards established by "Doc" Romnes, during
the years when he was one of the game's great-
est professional players, in skill, improvement,
teamplay, spirit, and especially sportmanship.
This trophy is a Htting tribute to Fountain
Valley's hockey coach, a former holder of the
Lady Byng Cup for sportsmanship in the Na-
tional Hockey League, and a gentleman beloved
and respected by all of the boys.
The members of the team wish to thank
their coaches who brought them far along the
road to being hockey players and manager Bill
Fairburn for his help. For the l953-54 Dane
hockey team learned how to play the game,
even though outclassed, outplayed, and out-
scored. ln so doing, they won the respect of
their opponents, the followers of hockey in the
Colorado Springs area, and their fellow stu-
dents at school. With the Pup team, now a
regular member of the Colorado Springs Young
America League, as a feeder and with the price-
less experience gained this year, the hockey
team is looking forward towards a successful
season next year and in years after.

This year was the first that Fountain Val-
ley School had a truly active Pup hockey
team, and while the Pups were inexperienced,
they put on a good performance in their first
season in the Colorado Springs Young America
Hockey League. All but one of the Pup goals
were made by the nrst line: high scorer was
Tim Collins with two goals plus four assists,
Dean Jay made two goals and three assists, and
Allan McDonald gathered two goals.
In the first game the Pups were just getting
used to each other and therefore lacked good
team play. In the second and third games they
did better but still could not click together. The
fourth game, however, was a different story as
the Pups tied the league-leading team, the Red
Wings, 2-2. This was by far the best game of
the season. In the lirst three minutes the Red
Wings scored their two goals, but immediately
afterwards Dean Jay and Allan McDonald re-
taliated for the Pups. The outstanding player
of this game was David Webster, whose per-
formance as goalie kept the Red Wings in
check. This spectacular play by Dave, who
was chosen captain of the Pups, prevailed
throughout the season. Hereafter the Pups
though winless, continued to improve until the
eleventh game, when with the scor-e 2-0 in fav-
or of the Cheyenne Huskies, Hunt scored on an
assist by Wood and two minutes later Jimmy
Orban apparently scored another, but it was not
allowed by the officials. After that the Pups
never could quite click for the needed goal. The
season ended with eleven losses and one tie.
Special mention should go to Erich Bucherer,
Tom Wood, and Don Rydstrom for their
fighting spirit at defence throughout the year.
The Pups would like to thank Mr. Palmer, Mr.
Perkins. Mr. Spencer and especially Deric Hop-
kins, whose coaching enabled the squad to im-
prove as they did during the year.

The Pup basketball team had a very success-
ful season this year with seven wins and five
losses. The high scorer for the year was Jon
Ormes with 103 points. and Bill Hughes was
second with 88. The Pups played together well
and displayed real teamwork during most of
their games. The highlight of the season 'was
the Junior High School Tournament at Crip-
ple Creek, where the Pups defeated Victor and
Cripple Creek to win the championship. Spe-
cial mention should go to John David, Pat
Nlcllflahon, Wann Rawles, and Bill Stewart for
their good performances and spirit throughout
the season. The Pups owe a great deal to their
Coach. Mr. Newman, and also to their man-
ager, Jerry Van Cl-eve.

With the completion of the new gym this
year, squash became a reality at Fountain Val-
ley. The courts, two of the best built in the
country, saw heavy use, for forty-live boys,
nearly one-half the student body, received pri-
First highlight of the season was the initia-
tion of the court in late October, with an ex-
hibition between the headmaster and his former
coach at Amherst. This match gave would-be
players an idea of the game's skill, speed and
During the winter, twelve players vied for
places on the team ranking board, while those
playing the sport in their spare time competed
for positions on the school ranking list, In view
of the fact that only a few boys had played or
even seen squash racquets prior to this year, the
progress shown was remarkable.
In February interest centered on the student-
faculty match. The headmaster and the presi-
dent of the Student Council, Sam Silverstein
fittingly battled in the number-one match,
which was won by the headmaster, the team's
coach throughout the season. Bob Rahm gave a
good account of himself against Mr. Spencer in
the second match before losing. Mr. Dibble won
the third singles, overcoming Ken Fung in
straight games: and in the fourth spot Don
Skutt acquitted himself well but fell to Mr.
Quintana. The match of the day, however, was
the last, a hard-fought contest between Bob
Hamill and the headmaster's wife. For days af-
terwards. Bob recounted his planned strategy
in yielding the first two games to Mrs. Poor be-
fore sweeping the last three, to keep the stu-
dents from being shut out.
Undoubtedly the climax of the season was
the first annual school tournament. Among the
thirty-four entries, members of the regular
squad performed creditably: and four non-team
contestants - Gaines, Hunt, Schmid, and Clark
Smith reached the quarter-finals. The outstand-
ing non-team player, however, was John Hal-
deman, who gained the semi-final bracket be-
fore going down to Sam Silverstein. The other
semi-final match saw Bob Rahm overcome
third-ranked Ken Fung. A good crowd wit-
nessed the Hnals between Rahm and Silverstein
and saw Bob, although second-seeded behind
Sam, emerge as first school champion by scores
ofl5-ll,8-15, 15-12 and15-11-.

The Mountain Club
The second full year of the Mountain Club
has been very successful. Mr. Ormes started the
year by entertaining the school with a slide lec-
ture about previous Fountain Valley climbs. He
announced that the first major peak would be
Mount Yale and that this year's president was
to be David Dornan. The Mount Yale climb
was very much enjoyed by the fourteen boys
who climbed 14, 172 feet, the largest group in
the school's history to climb a major peak. Sev-
eral interesting rock climbs were made during
the fall season, too. Among them were a new
route on the Demonstration Pinnacle in North
Cheyenne Canyon, a swing over to the south-
west on the north ridge of the Kindergarten.
and a rappel at night from Window Rock.
Two snow climbs were made in the Winter
term. The first one was a one-day walk on
Sentinel Point, which enabled several climbers
to learn the use of the ice-axe and crampons.
The second was on the West Spanish Peok.
Four climbers reached the top and at the same
time made the lirst club ascent of 1954. The
winter term was memorable for two important
lectures. In January the club members attended
the K-2 lecture. Bob Craig and Dee Molenaar
gave a grophic account of their rugged experil
ences on the world's second highest peak. The
Mount Everest lecture on February 28 in Den-
ver was even more popular with a large group
hearing Sir Edmond Hillary relate the story of
the successful attack on the highest summit in
On April 7th Mrs. Elizabeth Cowles gave
an excellent talk on climbing in Switzerland. At
this meeting Ron Bishop, Chuck Hall, Morgan
Smith, and Don Skutt Qin absentiaj were an-
nounced as new members.

The Workcrew has now become a Hrmly es-
tablished organization at Fountain Valley. At
its beginning, only boys who were not enthus-
iastic about regular sports joined, but now there
are boys each season who are working because
they prefer it to a regular sport. The boys have
a lot of fun working with Ed Bryant, and Mr.
Littell who is the Workcrew "coach", By
working out on the ranch at many different
types of jobs, the boys learn much about this
type of work. Many of its members often get
up at five in the morning to help finish a job
which could not be completed the day before.
Another factor which enters into the Work-
crew spirit is the Way in which Mrs. Bryant
will bring refreshments out or have them at the
house for the crew after a hard day's Work. At
the end of each season the Bryants have a break-
fast for the members of the crew.
This year in the Fall term there were nine
boys out for the Workcrew. During this time
they put in 495 hours of work during the reg-
ular sports period and more hours late in the
afternoon or in the early morning. During this
time, well over 20 tons of corn were picked by
hand from the school's two corn fields. The
picking of this corn was the largest job done
this fall. All of the school's alfalfa was put in
by the crew in the first few weeks of school
and also several tons of oats were brought in
and ground up for feed. Such jobs as grinding
feed, cleaning out the corrals and barn, and
loading stock came up regularly and interrupted
work on other and longer projects. There were
also small jobs to be done around the school
which filled in the remainder of the term. A
few of these were building fences, digging or
painting, irrigating the alfalfa field, on occasion
helping out with the stock, and cutting up fire-
wood for the sixth form and masters.
For the Fall Term, David Davis acted as the
crew "captain", or straw boss. His job was to
choose boys for the different jobs and to take
charge of the group when neither Ed nor Mr.
Littell was there.
Throughout the winter term there were sev-
en boys out who put in 360 hours or forty-five
working days. This is the most difficult season
to work in as bad weather keeps the crew from
working at times for the full sports period. On
a bad day, the crew usually took on a short
job such as cutting wood or doing the daily
chores. This was more than made up for,
though, by working extra hours on another day
to finish some important job. The straw boss
for this season was Bryant Barnard. The main
emphasis was put on fence building through-
out the winter term and much was accomplished.
The field next to the new gym was fenced in
so that is could be terraced for an irrigated
pasture to be ready a year from this spring.
Also in this pasture there were several large cot-
tonwood trees that had to be cut down and re-
moved before the terracing could begin.
The start of the spring term saw twelve
boys out for ten weeks of work. The man pro-
ject for this term was building a stretch of
fence about three miles long straightening out
the property line, and adding more land to the
school pastures to the west running down to the
highway. During lambing time, the Workcrew
spent time fixing up the sheep barn and helping
to dip and shear the sheep. The routine jobs
done throughout the two previous terms were
still worked at regularly, but without lasting
effect as the stock ate the feed as fast as it was
ground, the ditches still filled in with dust and
weeds, and the barn and corrals still needed
cleaning out every few months.
As the Workcrew is not an organized sport
no letter is given, but in order to recognize a
person who has put in considerable time and
effort, a gift certificate at one of the stores in
town is given at the end of each season.
This year the Workcrexv has been the best
yet and much has been accomplished. Every-
one who came out and stayed with the crew
for a season enjoyed his stay and learned some-
thing about farming. There are only a few
places left on the school grounds where one can
not look and see fences, ditches, or some other
improvements made by the Workcrew.
