SIXTH FORM HISTORY
A wise man once said that 702, of the enioyment
of anything comes from memories of it. The class of
T955 will surely find this true about Fountain Valley
School. Our fondest memories will be of the boys with
whom we shared these happy years.
We were surely a group of different types! It was
really amazing how twenty-one boys of such great
variety could compound such a happy, hard-working
fun-loving form. We ranged from Hong Kong to Jack-
son Hole and from Beethoven to Big Jay McNeeley!
Remember the die-hard Conferedate Rebels among
us? The most well-rounded of R. E. Lee's remaining
disciples was the amiable John Crawford, a fearsome
athlete, indispensible Student Council member, and
peace and quiet-loving proctor. Then there was the
L. A. underground worker for the C.S.A., Dick Kice.
Able to see the funny side of anything, Dick kept the
form in constant gales of laughter with his never end-
ing line. Jim Sowell, pride of Texas, lalso proud of
Texasl was the third of the Rebels. Maybe he couldn't
ride a horse, but did you ever see him in a car?
Remember the music of East Penrose? Bach or Bru-
beck, it had to be loud. Always from Rivvy's room
came the sounds of Jackie Gleason amplified by
Rivvy's electrical genius through five speakers and a
canteloupe. At the same end of the hall, the iovial
corn-picker with the Model T laugh, Bob Weitz, de-
fended his progressive iazz against the attacks of
Bullet Leecls' Saki Sipping Songs from Saipan. Judging
from some of Bill's gals, we should have taken lessons
from the "Pasadena Passion." ln the midst of the con-
fusion at the end of the dorm, we will always remem-
ber that well-connected, clear-complected, unaffected,
most respected warrior - Deric Hopkins. Hop was an
invaluable cog in many wheels and everybody's best
friend. A little farther down the hall, we recall Linc
O'Brien beating out his favorite Indian Music, using a
slide rule as a drum stick, and his friend Shoemaker's
stomach as a tom-tom. Shoe, however, would usually
escape from the grasp of "the missing Linc", and once
he was on the road, it took a very fast war dance to
catch him. Speaking of music, do you remember Dave
Webster's dances? We surely owe much to Webby for
the blood, sweat, and tears he shed on the store and
the dance committee. The murals painted by Ellis
Adams, man of military, diplomatic, and artistic su-
periority, did much for those dances too. The Year-
book and Dane have also benefited from this short,
compact bit of good humor called "Ellis in Wonder-
land." The chief appreciator of dances was .lack Un-
derhill, "Boy, man"! He even used to say that he
would rather dance than study. Astounding lad!
Remember those hilarious roommates Forman and
Galbraith? Good-natured Whit was always at his best
when throwing a casual slash at Shinola Dave, "Boy
Superman." Both athletes and hard workers, they
always will be'remembered as a pair of great guys.
The school paper was better than ever in T955
under the Editorship of Sid "the Paramecium" Yako-
witz. When Sid, one of the best liked fellows of the
form, wasn't studying, peering through a microscope,
or sleeping, he could be seen going, with a big grin
and well slicked hair, into town for an afternoon at
the Art Center with his girl lthat is, when the Admiral
wasn't teaching him Home Economicsl.
Sharing Yak's world of editorship was Darryl
Thatcher - head of this year's Yearbook. Acting as
the medical missionary in the deep, dark jungles of
uncivilized Penrose, Dr. T. handed out free aspirin to
those with aches or pains and free staples to those
with looseleaf English themes. We owe much to
Thatch for his time, effort, and pills.
The person responsible for the pictures in this book
was "Old Man of the Mountains" Dave Dornan. So
great was his love of climbing, Dornie has even been
known to bring up the subiect of mountains at a
dance! What a shock! The coolest character in the
form was Kenny Fung. lt was impossible to dislike the
"Oriental Tea Merchant," who was the hardest worker
amongst us and, providing Cicero had never lived,
the best scholar.
Remember the saying, "Thicker than seven acres
of snakes"'?' lt was used by Jim Markel lthe Rage of
Lodgepolel to describe everything from Geo tests to
his First Formers. Jim was one of the nicest guys ever
to grace the first string of three Varsity teams.
Speaking of athletes and nice guys, how about
Steve W. Gould lW. stands for Winchester, Whasa-
matter, or Wait, Webbyl? lf you couldn't get along
with Steve, you might as well have given up relations
with the human race. Goopie was the real example of
a swell fellow.
Dick Wydick took honors with his famous ldon't
touch the bowll meerschaum pipe, the witty remarks
which issued forth from under his "flat-top," and his
excellent leadership of the Student Council. We won't
soon forget Dick's greatest characteristic, his friend-
Looking back, we must admit that we have en-
ioyed Fountain Valley - the sports, bull sessions, and
even the classes - but most of all we've enioyed just
being with the fellows whom we've talked about
here - the Sixth Form. W

Ellis has much of the forms creative talent. He is
the genius that draws and paints the dance backdrops
and the dividers in the Yearbook. Ellis is also a differ-
ent kind of genius in English and history, where he
walks away with top honors.
Other hobbies include the workcrew, the smoking
area, and early morning studying. Favorite sayings:
"Well, how are you this morning?" "I don't have
enough time." "That C. M. A. was the .... " "Any-
body who takes me seriously is a tool."

Juan is one ofthe most popular guys in the form,
and his likable personality has won him the name of
"Uncle John." Southern sentiments perhaps account
for his easy-going manner. His size made him the star
tackle ot the football team, and his bulk has been a
familiar sight on the basketball court. Both ot these
qualities have been put to use in John's proctoring ot
First House. He has also been one ot the Form's stand-
ard bearers on the Student Council tor the past two

Dorny, the form's mountaineer extraordinary, will
long be remembered for his sage veteran's advice, for
his nocturnal peregrinations, which he is able to make
because of his daytime slumbers, and for the excel-
lent job he has done as Photography and Senior Edi-
tor of this yearbook. He has always been quite capable
and full of surprises. "Won't you buy fifteen calen-
dars?" "There will be a rock climb next Tuesday af-
ternoon." "Oh, and may l see anyone who wants go,
here by the piano."

fortunately Dave can take it with good humor. Dave

Kenny has the best humor imagirlable, he not only
provides us with coy remarks but has a wonderful
disposition. Ken rates as the Form's best raquet man,
he's the top tennis and squash player in it. His great-
est ambition, he tells us, is to be Emperor of the world.
He also says, "Go, man, go." "He must be crazy."
"I should say not." "What the heck?" "Why that . .
"Look, old man." and "Good morning, old man."

and an "outstanding" party-goer. He also holds the
record for being on crutches and in hospitals. "Let me

his staunch defense ot Winchester ag'ainst Texan Sow-
ell's onslaughts l"Quit fighting on my bed."l, for his
good cheer, tor his uncanny knowledge in Physics
l"Look, you take a cosine A, . . etc.l, and certainly
tor his athletic ability and sportsmanship. Steve
showed both in winning the Dwinnel Award. We wish

Bill came here as a gullible Third Former, but to-
day the answer is "Yeah, sure, Hop!" or "Yep, that's
right." Experience is a good teacher. Only how did
your room get in the shower? Bill has an active mind
of his own which often means an over-supply of ap-
ples or keeping Hoppy annoyed throughout evening
study hall by a neighborly geo discussion with other
geomorph fans. Typewriting is another outlet for this
excess energy of Bill's. However, Bill's fine spirit com-
pensates for his antics.

little wild, you see." Yet Dick has never neglected his
studies, being frequently on the Honor and Merit Rolls.

Jim was swept down from the plains of Nebraska
in the wildest wind that ever settled on Fountain Val-
ley. It meant giving up Paula, the Chevvy, and the
great city of Lodgepole, but Jim quickly found conso-
lation in the forms of Crawford and Sowell. Jim de-
lighted them and rest of the form with his tall stories,
jokes, and new songs. He pleased the entire school
even more with his athletic performance and team
spirit on the field and on the court.

Indian O'B came off the reservation last September
to tell us that he's going to hunt at Harvard after the
season's closed here. However, O'B has lent more than
arrows to the form and school. His type of humor con-
tains slashes, wisecracks, and jokes in a more than
often unusual form. "Shoe keeps the window open be-
cause l'm bigger." To travel O'B style is to walk.

Solid Shoe has two highlights almost every day at
school. The first is at rnealtimes when Hungry Shoe
competes with room mate O'B for quantity consump-

class where Shoe pulls down the high grades. To both
of these Dave modestly claims, "There's nothing to it."
Shoe is a hard worker but once was absent-minded,

Close to twenty-five boys showed up on September
18 to vie for various positions on the varsity team as
the school began its twenty-fifth year of competitive
football. With eight returning lettermen the prospects
for a good season looked excellent. The coaching staff,
which consisted of Mr. Newman, Mr. Dibble, and Mr.
Heartl, had to work fast to snap the team into shape
for the first game, only three weeks after the opening
As the grunts and groans of the days passed, the
team slowly rounded into a smooth-working unit.
However, they were not quite ready for St. Marys,
their fi-rst opponent. The Pirates had a great deal more
experience than the Danes, having three games under
their belts. The Pirates and Danes were deadlocked for
three periods, but lack of experience and conditioning
took its toll as St. Marys rallied for three quick touch-
downs in the fourth quarter to win 20-0. The Danes
came right back however, to win the next game
against Canon City by a score of 66-0. This was un-
doubtedly the easiest game of the year, since Canon
City had no defense against the Danes' repeated end
runs and up-the-middle drives which compiled a
commanding half-time lead. There was no letdown
during the second half as the Danes continued to put
the pressure on an overwhelmed Canon City, even
the bench had been cleared of all substitutes. How-
ever, the next game proved to be quite different as
the Danes traveled to Pueblo to take on the strong
Publo Central B team. Pueblo had a great deal of
depth, with over 40 members warming up. They
jumped to a quick 7-0 lead with a first-quarter touch-
down, and held this lead throughout the first half.
The inspired Danes fought right back to score on a
70-yard run by Jay McMillan and pulled to within one
point of the Wildcats. On a tense last-period drive, the
Danes snatched the .game out of the fire on Chuck
Hall's spectacular catch of one of McMillan's passes.
The extra point try was again missed, and the score
ended FVS 12, Central "B" 7.
Fountain Valley's next game proved to be the big-
gest test of the year as Manitou, with several victories
already to its credit, took the field against the Danes.
Fountain Valley fell quickly behind 14-0 on two touch-
downs by Manitou but staged the fiercest rally of the
year to pull within one point of the battling opponents.
defermined Danes rallied for Two more Touch-

and Took no quarTer as They played Top-noTch
all The way for The vicTory.
There was a leTdown afTer The Manifou gamej and
FVS was in no condition To meet Cenfennial The nexT
week. From The opening kickoff The Danes were ouT-
played, ouTfoughT, and ouTscored. There seemed To
be no defense againsT CenTennial's aTTack. The ,final
score was 32-7. The Team worked hard The nexT week
in preparafion for iTs game wiTh FounTain. BoTh squads

was a grueling baTTle. FVS jumped To an early lead
wiTh Two Touchdowns in The firsT half. FounTain rallied

margin Toro poinfs, 13-7. From There on bofh Teams
puf TogeTher susTained drives, buT neifher could score,
and The game ended a fourTh vicTory for The Danes.
The lasT game of The year was againsf The Colo-
rado Springs High School Terrors' B squad. IT was a
cold, bleak day as The Two squads Took The field. By
The end of The day The whole FVS Team wished They
had stayed in Their cozy rooms. The Danes seemed To
be compleTely ouTclassed, and excepT for one brief FV
scoring ThrusT, The Terrors dominafed The play. The
final score was Terrors 26, Danes 6. This was definifely
noT one of The Danes' besT games, Their plays iusT
would noT work.
Thus ended anoTher season wiTh The Danes com-
piling a 4-3 record. IT was noT a greaf season, buf iT
was a good one. The sTarTing lineup consisfed of Tom

This fall the hard-driving Pups ran off their first
winning season in several years, spearheaded by high
scorer Johnny Hunt, "Lightning Bill" Hughes, "Iron
Man" Hap Slaton, and John David, who caught any-
thing Thrown in his vicinity.
The Pups, who were in the Rocky Mountain League,
also played several non-league games. The first of
these was with the heavy Fountain B team, which gave
FVS one of its worst beatings of the year, 18-O. The
second game was with the Colorado Springs Young-
America champions, whom the Red and Gray van-
In their first leaguegames, the Pups ran over the
smaller Denver Country Day squad to the tune of 20-
6. Woodland Park tied the combined efforts of the
Varsity B and the Pups, stopping FVS on the three-foot
line for four downs to make the final tally O-O.
After the Pups trounced Colorado Military Academy
33-6, the combined B-Pups lost to the Fort Carson
Young America squad in a scorefest.
Hampered by illness, the Pups suffered their only
league loss to Cherry Hills School 33-14 but were the
first team to score on Cherry Hills in three years. ln
the final game the Pups edged Graland School 13-12,
to make their league record three wins and one loss.

Although only in its second year, soccer attracted
over one third of the school during the fall. Under the
guidance of Mr. Palmer and with the help of Co-Cap-
tains Ken Fung and Dave Webster, the boys, many of
whom had never played the game before, learned
about the various soccer skills such as kicking, drib-
bling, passing, tackling, heading, and trapping.
The varsity played five games: one with Colorado
Rocky Mountain School, two with Fort Carson, and two
with Colorado College. In the 6-O loss to Colorado
Rocky Mountain School, the only other high school in
the state with a soccer team, the Dane squad was
confounded by a pair of fleet-footed Italian twin
brothers. .Probably everyone on the team will agree
that our games with Fort Carson were the most en-
joyable. The older and more experienced men, instead

of piling up big scores, encouraged us and showed us
many of the fine points of the game. Dave Webster

For The first Time, FounTain Valley This year offered
Pup soccer as a fall sport. AlThough mosT of The many
FirsT, Second, and Third Farmers who came out for The
sport had not had much, if any, prior experience play-
ing The game, They progressed rapidly under Coach
Palmer's daily TuTelage.
Finally, after a greaT deal of hard work on The
practice field, The Pups played a game againsT The
Cheyenne Mountain Junior High School Team. The
game was a fasT, hard-played one, and The Two Teams
proved To be very evenly mafched. WiTh The breaks
disTribuTed evenly, The score aT The end of The game
was O-O. A return game with Cheyenne was cancelled
when The Indians closed Their season early To sTarT
baskefball, and a game wiTh The ScouT Troop Team un-
der Mr. Russell, The Colorado College coach, was called
off because of a flue epidemic.
The Pup Team enjoyed playing The varsity booters
in practice sessions. Though foofball fans might find
such-a conTest of older and younger boys somewhat
sTrange, The game of soccer depends less on size and
brute sTrength Than on speed and skill, and The Pups
provided good opposition for Their older opponenfs.

nounced The sTandards decided upon for Pup soccer

On The lasT day of The winTer Term, The Reds played
The Grays. The Grays, led by Johnny Crawford, pulled
ahead quickly and were challenged only during The
Third period, despiTe The fine play of Jim Markel, WalT
Sheldon, and Tom Wood. For The Grays, Chuck Hall
played an excellenT game under The boards, and The
Gray squad as a whole seemed To find The hoop more
often Than The Reds, .Though The laTTer drove in more
frequenfly. The final score was Grays 51 , Reds 37.
STaTisTically, The baskeTball Team had a bad sea-
son, buT some of The Team members did well. CapTain
WalT Sheldon, playing in every game, menaced op-
posing players wiTh his hard drives and quick shoTs.
Chuck Hall proved To be one of The Top men wiTh his
fine jump shofs and board work. Jim Markel, always
a sTeady player, was a good Team man and excellenT
foul shooTer. John Crawford, wiTh his deadly one-
hand seT shot, was high scorer for The Danes in a
maioriTy of Their games. And Tom Wood, The man
under The backboards, showed good Teamwork and
The B squad fared beTTer Than The A in The win-
lose column, winning four of Their eighT games. AT
The Top of The poinT-scorers were Tim MaffiTT, Hayo
NoTman, and.Mac Snodgrass.
AlThough The A and B baskeTball Teams compiled
far from noTeworThy records, The season was one of
disTincT gains, largely because a good number of
underformers had The chance noT only To play a greaT
deal of baskeTball buT also To acquire a sound masTery
of The game's funclamenTals under The skillful coach-
ing of Mr. Dibble.

played Corpus ChrisTi. F.V.'s high scorer proved To be
Gene Grimwood wiTh Ten poinTs, and he was closely
followed by Hap SlaTon wiTh eighT. The final score
was 32-27. Two games Typical of The Pups' hard luck
were The ones wiTh ManiTou and Graland School. They
losT To ManiTou 45-35 and To Graland 32-28.
The seasons score sheeT showed Gene Grimwood
To be high scorer wiTh sixTy-Two poinTs, Hap Slafon
nexT wiTh TifTy-Tour poinTs, and STan Johnson Third
wiTh ThirTy-Tour poinTs. AlThough The Pups' won-and-
losT record was a poor one, They did show steady pro-
gress ThroughouT The season in learning The funda-
menTals of Baskefball. Under The careful coaching of
Mr. Newman, These TundamenTal skills are developed
season by season unTil The Pups reach FounTain Val-

Like last year, the Fountain Valley School Hockey
team did not win a single game. However, they came
close to breaking their winless record more than once.
With spirit and aggressiveness, it seems as though
they should have had a better record, but the experi-
ence of the opposing teams came out ahead. The
players would go out on the ice with the aim of
scoring their first win and would come off the ice
looking forward to their next chance.
The team came closest to a win on January 17th,
when they played the St. Mary's Pirates. In the first
period Mike Collins put the Danes out in front l-O,
and Bill Pierpont raised the score to 2-O in the second
period. The third period turned out to be a different
story with the tired Danes allowing two quick goals
by the Pirates. F.V. was able to hold for the rest of the
period but was not able to tally itself. Thus the game
went into overtime, and the Pirates were able to hit
first to gain a hard-earned 3-2 win.
Another close one came on December l3th when
the Red and Gray played the Colorado Springs High
School Terrors. The two teams were very evenly
matched, and the game was hard fought. The Terrors
were able .to slide one past Dane goalie Steve Hart
in the first period, but in the second period Whit Gal-
braith scored on an assist by Tim Collins. In the third
period both teams fought hard for the winning goal,
and the Terrors got it, putting them out in front 2-l.
On January 27th, FVS played another tight game,
this one with the Cheyenne Indians. With the Indians
missing four players, the Danes were able to give
them more of a battle than they had before. By the
third period Cheyenne had sunk two goals, but in the
third period Dave Forman put one past the Cheyenne
goalie making the score 2-i,
The first half All-Star game was played on Janu-
ary 29th. The FVS portion of this team consisted of
Dick Haight, Mike Collins, and Clark Smith on the
starting line-up, with Steve Gould, Bill Pierpoint, and
Morgan Smith rotating at defense. Dave Forman and
Whit Galbraith were spare linemen, with Steve Hart
playing goal. The FVS-Cheyenne combination lost i-O
with Fountain Valley doing its share defensively.
To open The second half, The Red and Gray meT
The Terrors again on February 7Th. AT abouT The half-
way mark of The TirsT period, The Terrors scored on a
scramble in TropT of The neT. The Danes were able To
hold Them from Then on buT as usual were noT able
To geT The Tying goal. The Terrors won The game l-O.
Needless To say, all These games losT by one poinT
were somewhaT dishearTening, however, They in-
creased The spiriT and enThusiasm Tor The games ThaT
For The second All-STar game, F.V. Tearned up wiTh
ST. Marys and The Terrors To baTTle The undeTeaTed
Cheyenne Indians. Dick HaighT, STeve Gould, Mike
Collins, Bill PierpoinT, Morgan SmiTh, and STeve HarT
were The players from FounTain Valley. AIThough The
All-STars losT The game 8-O, FVS players showed some
of Their besT hockey of The season.
During mosT of The season The TirsT line was com-
posed oT Dick HaighT aT cenTer, Mike Collins aT IeTT

had Tim Collins aT cenTer, WhiT GalbraiTh aT leTT wing,

ln its second year in the Young America Heavy-
weight Hockey League, the Fountain Valley Pup hockey
team improved its record with one win, three ties, and
five losses, but still finished at the bottom of the
league. One of the Pups' ties was gained against the
league-winning Rovers in the' only game of the season
the Rovers did not win.
Under the sponsorship of Mr. Reed and with the
coaching of Mr. Haertl and Varsity Captain Steve
Gould, who took over after Mr. Haertl left, the Pups
developed a, good starting sextet but were hampered
by inexperienced reserves. The first line, made up of
Jim Orban at center, Co-Captain Bob Street at right
wing, and either Johnny Hunt or Dean Jay at left
wing, was as good as any in the league, with the fast-
skating Hunt earning a place on the Second All-League
Team at the end ofthe season. At defense, Co-Captain
George Renwick stood out with his heads-up play so
that he was picked for the First All-League Team, and
Don Rydstrom, the most improved player on the team,
paired with Renwick to give Fountain Valley a rugged
defense in front of hard-working goalie Russ Shields.
The chief reserves were forwards Johnny Hoyt, Tunney
Pattison and E. J. Smith, and defensemen Mickey De-
Bakey and Bill Pope.
With many of the lower farmers enthusiastic about
hockey, and with another league season's experience
behind them, the Pup skaters are looking ahead to-
ward a good season next year and are hoping to fin-
ish well out ofthe league cellar.

AT The beginning of The second year of squash aT
FounTain Valley, Twelve enThusiasTs came ouT To ioin
The Team, and The season sTarTed wiTh high hopes.
Under The guidance of Mr. Poor, squash players were
seen panfing around The aThleTic field and doing Their
exercises wiTh occasional moans and groans.
Soon clher ChrisTmas vacaTion The Team was cor-
dially inviTed by The Denver Club To play iTs firsT
maTch There on The new club courTs. A Team of Foun-
Tain Valley's five Top players - Ken Fung, Cyril Fung,
Sherman Chickering, Paco LuckeTT, and Chris Fung -
was chosen To represenT The school. All five mafches
were losT, however, To The aggressive and more ex-
perienced Denver opponenTs. The besT maTch of The
day was a fasT and well-ToughT conTesT beTween Cyril
Fung and Mr. Hodges of Denver. Cyril losT all Three
games by The same narrow margin, T5-ll. Though
The Danes losT, They enioyed The Trip very much and
learned many fine poinis of squash.
The annual school squash TournamenT was sTarTed
wiTh TwenTy-five, enTranTs, and The four Top-seeded
players reached The semi-final round. ln This round
Ken and Cyril Fung, The number one and Two players,
defeaTed Paco LuckeT and Sherman Chickering respec-
Tively wiThouT losing a game. The final, however,
proved To be someThing of an upset as Cyril played a
fasT and aggressive game To defe-aT his older broTher,
Ken, who was handicapped by a blisTered hand. The
game scores were T5-I i, T2-15, T5-7, and T5-TO.
Since The 1954-55 squad consisTed mosTly of lower
formers, There are brighT hopes of developing some
fine players in The TuTure.

The workcrew, probably the most unique recrea-
tional activity in the school, affords a chance for boys
who lack natural athletic ability or are not interested
in athletics to do something constructive and at the
same time enjoyable. ln addition, the workcrew gives
boys who are interested in ranching a chance to learn
something about the business and to gain some ex-
perience in it, under the guidance of Ed Bryant, the
ranch manager, and Mr. Littell, the faculty supervisor.
The workcrew does everything from building fence
to working on the Chapel. The fact that many of the
boys work on the crew during all three sports seasons
shows the high morale of the group.
Mr. and Mrs. Bryant each term have a Sunday
morning breakfast for the workcrew, and many after-
noons Mrs. Bryant brings refreshments to boys whom
Ed has asked to work late. Many mornings Ed asks
a few boys to get up at four or five o'clock to help
him finish a job, and he never has any trouble secur-
Since the workcrew is not a team, no athletic letter
is given to any of its members, however, in recognition
of what each boy has done during a term, he is
awarded either a suitable gift or a gift certificate from
one of the stores in town. In this way each member,
although he does not participate directly in a team
sport, feelsthat he has something to show for the work
he has done.
The work perTains To The ranch and every iob is
for The improvemenT of The school. The Types of iobs
vary greaTly from season To season, depending upon
The weaTher, and Thus a workcrewman has a chance
To do a greaT varieTy of work. Each one does an equal
amounT, and hence no one feels ThaT he has been lefT
ouT or overworked.
This year The workcrew celebraTed iTs Third anni-
versary wiTh The greaTesT number of members iT has
ever had. During The fall There were eleven eager
beavers doing The many chores on The ranch, and in
The winTer TwenTy-one chose workcrew as Their sporT.
Much was accomplished during The year. The work-
crew began wiTh The mosT imporTanT iob of The year,
haying, which IasTed over Two weeks, and when all
The hay was finally sTacked, Ed calculaTed ThaT The
crew had moved nearly TwenTy-six Tons. The second
mosT imporTanT fall iob, picking The corn which is also
used To feed The animals during The winTer, was less
back-breaking This year, Thanks To The uTilizing of a
borrowed corn picker. The crew sTill had The major
proiecT of hauling The corn To The barn and sToring iT.
The compleTion of The leveling of The new irrigaTed
pasTure souThwesT of The aThleTic field gave The work-
crew a new iob, irrigaTing. The group spenT abouT one
fifTh of iTs Time in The fall preparing The diTch Through
The field for The passage of The irrigaTion waTer. On
irrigaTion days many of The boys sTayed unTiI five or
six o'clock To help wiTh This Task.
Probably The mosT rouTine iob ThaT fell To The loT
of The workcrew was building fences. During The win-
Ter ThaT was The primary acTiviTy. The crew builT abouT
a half-mile of fence along The souThern boundary of
The school and anoTher half-mile To separaTe The
souTheasT pasTures from The culTivaTed land below The
Big Johnson Reservoir. AnoTher new fence was run
along The wesT edge of The Gymkhana Field, lengThen-
ing iT abouT a hundred feef. The biggesT fencing oper-
aTion of The year was puTTing one in along The enTire
wesT boundary of The school. This iob Took mosT of
The winTer and spring Terms, for several miles of fence
had To be builT.
In T954-55 The workcrew experienced iTs mosT
prosperous year wiTh TwenTy per cenT of The school
parTicipaTing cluring The winTer, The crew hopes ThaT
This inTeresT will conTinue so ThaT all will realize The
imporTanT iob The crew does and The large amounT of
money iT saves The school.

The purpose of the Student Council at Fountain
Valley is twofold: to gain faculty-student cooperation
and to coordinate student activities. It is a group
elected by the boys to represent and lead the student
body. It endeavors to create a feeling in the school
which can come, not from the faculty alone, not from
the students alone, but from mutual efforts. Through
the Student Council's varied responsibilities, it is of
assistance to both teachers and students. In order to
be a good' council, it has to be a clear-thinking, de-
pendable group with ideas and initiative. ln order to
be effective, it must have members who are willing
to standby their convictions and uphold the right side,
not necessarily the popular side. This year's Student
Council, although faltering at times because of lack
of experience, endeavored to be a combination of
Our adviser, Mr. Poor, was of invaluable help
throughout the year with his experience and under-
standing. The foundation laid by previous Councils
was also of great aid. The excellent constitution written
by the Council of '53-'54 and ratified by the students
at the beginning of this year was the guide for all
For the first time this year, all student activities
were coordinated through the Student Council. Each
organization had a charter of purposes and by-laws,
which was presented to the Council. By using these
charters, the Council was able to act as a center of
activity and effect harmony among the many organi-
The Student Council was essential in the progress
of the student-built chapel. During the first part of the
year, the chapel seemed to be a far-off dream which
would never be realized. However, through the gener-
osity of many friends of the School,the tools and ma-
terial necessary to begin construction were secured.
The mechanics and planning of the chapel were done
by the Council under the direction of Mr. Carlisle Guy
and Mr. Littell. Supported by wonderful enthusiasm
among the fellows, the Council was able to do a great
deal on this worthwhile proiect.
The Dance Committee, appointed by the Student
Council, put on some very successful dances through
hard work and great spirit. The Council also appointed
the Yearbook and Dane Editors. Proof of the advisa-
bility of this plan was the efficiency and skill with
which both of these publications were managed.
Realizing the need for a school catalogue, the
Council started the ball rolling towards this publica-
tion for new boys and prospective students.
A reorganization of the Varsity Club was pro-
jected in order to make it more effective. A new func-
tion of this club will be organized spectator cheering,
which was started for the first time this year.
In accordance with Fountain Valley's policy of
donating to one charity, the 'students in November
selected the Damon Runyon Cancer Fund as the one
to which they would contribute, and in March, the
Council collected a large sum which went to this fund.
Early in the year, a committee of Seniors was ap-
pointed to carry out another new idea. When new
boys first arrive- at F.V.S. they are completely in the
dark as to rules, activities, and customs of the School.
ln order to make them more at home in their new sur-
roundings, the graduated Senior class is going to send
a letter to each new student two weeks before his
arrival. In this letter will be explained the more im-
portant. policies and traditions of F.V.S.
A definite system for the awarding of the earned
weekend was initiated this year, with the Student
Dormitory Committee, the Faculty Dormitory Commit-
tee, the Headmaster, and the Student Council being
The personalities which made up the '54-'55 Coun-
cil were varied, yet were remarkably in concert. One
of the best features of the Council was the feeling of
'complete cooperation and obiectivity. There were
healthy differences of opinion, but never was there a
question ontwhich compromise was impossible. The
dependable member from the lower forms was Cyril
Fung, whose steadfastness was a real asset to the
Council. Chuck Hall, an able leader, was succeeded
in January by. Larry Snideman, who held the respect of
his classmates and was a hard-working member.
Hugh Knapp, the other Fifth Form representative, was
a guiding light of the organization with his construc-
tive ideas and clear-sightedness. John Crawford, the
mainstay of many committees and an exponent of
the liberal point of view, and Deric Hopkins, cheerful,
perservering conservative, were two Sixth Form mem-
bers. The third member, President Dick Wydick, was
helmsman of the organization through his quiet lead-
ership and great variety of ideas.

Last year's Viking was this fall renamed the Foun-
tain Valley Dane. It was essentially the same school
newspaper that had been published in previous year,
but several bugs were worked out. For instance, after
the school duplicating machine had ruined the stencils
three times in succession, Mr. Brown gave the Dane
a wonderful rebuilt duplicator that greatly improved
the appearance of the subsequent issues. Mr. Smith,
the faculty adviser, should be commended for weeding
out nearly all the mechanical errors.
In the fall the Student Council chose Sid Yakowitz
Editor-in-Chief, after Darryl Thatcher, appointed tem-
porary Editor the previous year, got the paper started
before moving over to be Editor of the Yearbook. Link
O'Brien, the Managing Editor, set up the Dane's first
publication room. Dave Forman filled the position of
Sports Editor and Jack Underhill became Column Edi-
tor. Another area in which the 1954-55 Dane made
great progress was in the art department under Ellis
Adams. His headlines and cartoons added much to
the quality of the paper, as did Dick Winkler in the
thankless task of supervising the typing.
This year's Dane provided reports of happenings
connected with the school and articles of interest to the
student body along with a number of unusual original
themes. The paper proved to be not only interesting to
the students in general but also educational and re-
warding to those who contributed their time and en-
ergy. Many underclassmen were on the staff, and
others were occasionally called upon to help. Next
year's newspaper will therefore be able to continue
where the 1954-55 Dane left off. When all the failings
are finally ironed out, the school newspaper will be-
come one of the finest phases of Fountain Valley life.
Left to Right, Standing: Adams, Dornan, Mr. Palmer, adviser, Editor Darryl Thatcher, Sitting: Hopkins,
The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the Year-
book not only commemorates the occasion by showing
the physical growth of Fountain Valley but also shows
what kinds of boys have made up the student body
The Executive Committee was responsible for plan-
ning the book and supervising its makeup. Deric Hop-
kins, the Business Manager, sold the advertisements
which furnished the money to pay for the publication.
Dave Dornan performed a two-fold job: He edited the
Senior writeups and took care of the photography.
Dick Wydick was an invaluable jack-of-all-trades. His
constructive editorial criticism was a great help, and
the business department would have been lost without
him. Ellis Adams drew all the dividers and initiated
and edited all the art work. His outstanding work is
evident on the cover and throughout the book. Darryl
Thatcher was the Editor-in-Chief of the Yearbook and
was responsible for its overall appearance. The Execu-
tive Committee would have been unable to do any-
thing had it not been for the encouragement, time, and
aid given by Mr. Palmer, the faculty adviser.
The Seniors who contributed sports articles to the
Yearbook were Dave Forman, Ken Fung, Whit Gal-
braith, Steve Gould, Jim Markel, and Jim Sowell, while
John Crawford, Dave Dornan, Ken Fung, Deric Hop-
kins, Darryl Thatcher, Jack Underhill, Dave Webster,
Dick Wydick, and Sid Yakowitz wrote about their
extra-curricular interests. Dick Kice and Ken Fung
helped Ellis Adams with the art work, Kice and Dave
Shoemaker were the chief gatherers of information,
Bill Leeds and Bob Weitz wrote the Sixth Form History,
and Link O'Brien and Alec Magruder, with the help
of many others, took care of the typing. Hence all the
class of 1955, as well as many others, had a hand in
the making of the twenty-fifth anniversary Yearbook,
which the Seniors hope will serve as a solid basis
upon which better yearbooks can be built in future

Immediately after the opening of school, the Dance
Committee was selected. Headed by the energetic
Dave Webster, the Committee did a very good iob.
The Committee's first efforts were directed toward
the Fall Dance. The theme of this dance was "Star-
dust," and let it be said that the Committee really saw
stars after cutting out, painting, and hanging hun-
dreds of them. The band, the Jim Howard Quintet
from Pueblo, was so popular that the student body
asked that this group be engaged for another dance.
The attendance at the dance was a record, with fifty-
five couples present.
At the conclusion of the mid-year ordeal, the Dance
Committee got back into harness and came up with
the- Winter Dance. The theme for this affair was
"Knights of Old." The waiters were utilized to carry
out the theme, doing their appointed duties dressed as
medieval characters. The backdrop, by Ellis Adams,
depicted two Knights iousting.
The plans for the Spring Dance were being formu-
lated when the Yearbook went to press, but in view of
the success of the previous dances nobody had any
doubts about the quality of the last one of the year.

The Fountain Valley Varsity Club has again This
year run The receptions after athletic contests under
The direction of President Deric Hopkins. The club also
attended for a while To The lost and found department
at school. Still another function of The club was To
help in deciding who should receive leTTers and num-
erals in The various sports.
One of The club's main objectives This year was
To build up school spirit. With This'aim in mind, a new
series of cheers was made up for use aT all games.
Also To improve school spiriT, The Varsity Club was
behind The movement To have more Red and Gray
The club members, dissatisfied with Their achieve-
ments, worked with The Student Council on plans to
reorganize The club, and The 1954-55 group hopes
that nexT year The Varsity Club will assume a position
of greater importance in The school.

A familiar sight This year was Manager Dave Web-
ster remodeling The Store. He completely redid The
front by installing new shelves and a new counter,
repainting, and building a stand for the freezers. In
addition, he builT an office in The back.

The Store Committee was a hard-working Team.

THE MOUNTAIN CLUB
The Mountain Club's first venture into high country
this year was a hike around Pikes Peak, visiting ghost
towns and old narrow-guage railroads. The maior-
peak climb for the fall, as announced by Club presi-
dent Dave Dornan, was Mt. Sherman, 14,1 37 feet. The
climbing of such a maior peak is one of the require-
ments for Mountain Club membership. Mt. Sherman
proved to be a worthy test for prospective and present
members alike. Mrs. Elizabeth Cowles, Dr. Roger Whit-
ney, and Mr. Palmer provided Mr. Ormes with extra
leadership on the climb.
There were two rock climbs in the fall, both in the
Garden of Gods and both of first-rate difficulty and
enioyment. The first was perhaps the more satisfying
for the veteran Club members. lt was a victory on the
much-attempted southern ridge of Window Rock. The
climb was done in perfect weather after a reconnais-
sance of the western side. The route was finally es-
tablished from the "standard" couloir and ledge on
the east side. Mr. Ormes did a spectacular lead over
a "tittering" ublock. The rock was descended by rappel,
with several climbers utilizing the overhang on the
north side for a free rappel. The other climb was the
airy north ridge of Grey Rock. The weather was again
clear and, except for the exposure at the traverse, en-
The winter snow climb took place on 12,265-foot
Almagre in enough snow to chill the feet of any
climber, but the Mountain Club candidates met this
challenge well. In February, Mrs. Cowles gave her
annual talk to round out the winter season. She started
with the fundamentals of mountaineering and then
progressed to climbing in Switzerland, South America,
and finally the great Himalaya Mountains. For each
of these areas Mrs. Cowles had slides which she had
ln the spring the Club planned rock climbs in the
Garden of the Gods and North Cheyenne Canyon, and
another major-peak climb to finish out the year.

THE GLEE CLUB AND THE OPERETTA
The '54-55 Glee Club was small, wiTh only eleven
members. The four Tenors were Ken Fung, Cyril Fung,
Chris Fung and Taddy Pound, Tom Wood, Ellis Adams,
and Mac Snodgrass comprised The bariTone secTion,
and Hugh Knapp, Darryl Thafcher, Dick Wydick, and
Jack Underhill provided low noTes from The bass sec-
Tion of The Club.
The Glee Club's firsT appearance, as always, was
The fall concerT given for The whole school in The Haci'-
enda living room. This year The club sang Jericho, a
negro spiriTual, The Peddler, a Russian folk song,
Marching to Pretoria, a SouTh African marching song,
and Jerusalem, The FounTain Valley hymn. As a resulT
of The hard work in rehearsals, The Glee Club acquiTTed
-4 ,QL ' ,..'1-1 , H
, - r ..
Soon afTer This performance, Mr. Kifson Told The
Club ThaT iT was To sing aT The dedicaTion of The new
auditorium. Since This program was The nighT before
The annual ChrisTmas Carol Concert, The group com-
bined parTs of The Two programs and sang Jericho and
Jerusalem, and The sepTeT - John Underhill, Darryl
Thafcher, Hugh Knapp, Tom Wood, Ken Fung, Cyril
Fung, and Taddy Pound - sang Go Tell IT On The
Mountain, as arranged by Gibson Gardner, an alum-
nus of The school.
AT five o'clock on The Sunday afternoon following
The dedication, The Glee Club was joined by The so-
pranos and alTos of The School in The TradiTional sing-
ing of such carols as The March of the Kings, The First
Noel, Silent Night, Beside Thy Cradle, The Christmas
Song, The Carol of The Bells, and Ye Watchers and Ye
Holy Ones. The septet repeaTed Go Tell It On the
Mountain and also sang Lo, Howa Rose 'Ere Blooming.
Immediately upon its return from the Christmas
holidays, the Glee Club learned that the Fountain
Valley operetta this year was to be Gilbert and Sulli-
van's The Mikado. After midyear examinations were
out of the way, the Club began rehearsing, minus
Hugh Knapp and Darryl Thatcher, who were taking
solo parts, to form the nucleus of the men's chorus. In
addition to the Glee Clubbers, nine other members of
the student body sang in the chorus. At the same time,
eighteen girls were diligently working under Mrs.
Colin Thorpe's and Mrs. N. F. Galbraith's direction to
become the ladies of the Mikado's court. In what
seemed a very short time, the two choruses were re-
hearsing together. Soon after this, the soloists began
to rehearse with the chorus, and The Mikado slowly,
painfully began to take shape under the tutoring of
Mesdames Galbraith and Thorpe, and Messrs. Kitson,
Palmer, Perkins, and Quintana. With the arrival of Ori-
ental costumes, procured by Mrs. Dibble, Mrs. Littell,
and Mrs. Palmer, and the miraculous transformation
produced by Mr. Lawrence Barrett and Dave Webster
and his stage crew, Japanese life began to seem a
reality. Members of the chorus, soloists, and coaches
were commonly speaking to The Mikado, Nanki-Pooh,
Yum-Yum, Pitti-Sing, Peep-Bo, Katisha, Ko-Ko, Pish-
Tush, Go-To, and Cut-Short instead of to Mr. Frank
Dibble, Corporal John Platt, Jo Jean Kepler, Susan
Littell, Jan Johnson, Mrs. Gwendolyn Wacker, Mr.
Frank Perkins, Darryl Thatcher, Dick Wydick, and Dickie
Robbins. No one in either ofthe choruses would admit
that he was Sherman Chickering, Chris Fung,Whit Gal-
braith, Ken Fung, Taddy Pound, Ellis Adams, Linc O'-
Brien, Larry Snideman, Mac Snodgrass, Jim Sowell,
Bob Weitz, Tom Wood, John Crawford, Dick Kice, or
Jack Underhill, or that she was Karen Alenius, Jan
Brown, Alice Crumpacker, Grace Dorsey, Lynn Mecasky,
Sue Nelson, Mrs. John Platt, Nancy Vaughan, Mary
Werkmeister, Ruth Barnett, Linda Corbin, Sara Green-
leaf, Eileen Humphrey, Tuskin Palmer, Marjorie Pier-
point, Beverly Rice, Charlene Robinson, Penny Walholm,
or Marillyn Young, and absolutely nobody would rec-
ognize one of the "persons of inferior status," i.e.,
coolies, as Dave Forman, Bill Hughes, Pat McMahon,
or Tom Richardson.
ln this aura of omnipotent Oriental autocracy, im-
measurably added to by the phony physiognomies
produced by Miss Louise Baum and the very real ac-
companiment produced by Mr. Charles Day from the
pianoforte, the first performance was given before the
student body and invited guests of the cast on March
eighth. On the following evening a repeat performance
was given before an audience of the School's friends,
including many parents.
Everyone who was in it certainly enioyed The
Mikado and was very sad when parting time came,
but the Seniors were especially sorry when they real-
ized that they had been in one of Mr. Kitson's Foun-
tain Valley operettas for the last time.
