This story is called OUR SCHOOL. It is edited by Kyle
Needham and Crystal Armstrong and represents the con-
tributions and elforts of the members of the Senior Class,
while I, the Litchfield Owl, the emblem and protector of the
school, have been chosen to be the narrator.
The time of our story is the school year of 1950-51, and the
events occur at Litchfield High School. So turn the pages
of this book and see the beautiful setting, meet the characters
of our story, and watch the plot unfold.
This is OUR Scriooi ,... Litchfield High School. It is located in Litchlield Park, Mari-
copa County, Arizona, latitude 32 degrees 30 minutes, longitude 112 degrees 24 minutes.
L. H. S. is not much different from any other school, but We think We have the prettiest
campus, friendliest students, and the best teachers in the state.
Over there on the Wall is a plaque that says OUR SCHOOL Was built in 1928 by M1'.
P. W. Litchfield. Earliest records there in the ofhce have names like Dobson and Phillips,
not so very dihcerent from those of today.
Yes, it's a nice school. Nobody very famous ever came out of it-so far as We know,
but a lot of fine American citizens got their high school diplomas from OUR SCHOOL.

ADMI I 'TRATIC N
T his year, as usual, there have been 180 school days,
each of which began at nine o'clock in the morning and lasted
until four in the afternoon. The ball games and dances took
place after regular hours.
Each month, the Board of Education has met to plan for
the betterment of the schoolg and the superintendent, Mr.
Tidwell, has put in many, long hours at his desk and in
The teachers have conducted classes, graded papers, chap-
eroned dances, ridden the rooters' bus to ball games, and
have given much honest advice-ranging from the choice
of a future career to the kind of corsage
one's dates would like for the next dance.
All members of the administration have
tried to make this a good year for the stu-
dents at Litchfield High 5 and now it is time
to meet the men and women who assume I
the responsibilities of work and play at

Let us now go back to September, 1950, when the Seniors
were having a class-meeting down there in room 7. Shall
We go in for a visit?
There is the class motto written on the board: "The courage
of the commonplace trains for the courage of the crisis." The
class has chosen blue and white for its colors and the red
rose for its flower.
Here comes President Tandy Andrade, who calls the class
to order and requests the reading of the minutes by the
secretary, Crystal Armstrong. Miss Hundhausen then an-
nounces that the co-editors chosen for the 1951 Wickiup are
Kyle Needham and Crystal Armstrongg the business man-
ager is Ona Lee Allen with Tandy Andrade as her assistant.
Miss Ybarra next explains that the Seniors are
to start the sale of magazine subscriptions at
once. This is "right down Leone's alley." Leone
became a national championship salesman.
Next the class select graduation announce-
ments and are told that throughout the year
representatives from various Arizona colleges
will visit them to talk about "next year." Their
busy schedule was forecast at the first meeting.
Let us now meet the members of the Class of '51.

This time it is a beautiful October morning as we pause
in front of Room 5. It looks as if the juniors are about to
meet. Bill Sweeney is talking over the business on hand
with Mrs. Jamison and Hr. Hayden. Listen:
"We'll have to get someone to sell cokes and candy at the
"Are we going to have an after-game dance?"
"The jewelry salesman will be here so that we can select
the class rings." '
"Gee! I hope he has some good ones again this year."
Business manager, Eleanor Brinker, is putting socks and lip-
stick into bags to give to the class to sell. They are going to
have a contest in March and sell air cushions with the tickets.
"After we work so hard to raise the mone for the rom and
banquet, what are we going to have on the menu? What will
be the theme? Who will be master of ceremonies?"
"When the prom is over, all welll have to do is usher at
baccalaureate and decorate for commencement."
It looks as if this class will have a busy year, too5 and since
the Juniors are now coming in for their meeting, let's take
time out to get acquainted with them all. .

Now let's take a walk down the hall to Room 4 and visit
with the Sophomores who are planning their year's work
with help of Mr. Quass and Mr. Komadina.
"Forward ever, backward never" has just been chosen for
a motto, the white carnation for the class flower, and chart-
reuse and fuschia for the colors.
The next business on hand is the initiation of the Freshmen.
Everyone offers suggestions and delights in selecting his
"slave" for the day.
Then plans must be made for decorating the Study Hall for
Christmas with a tree and other festive ornaments.
Discussion next changes to plans for April
Frolics. Captains Helen Baker and Richard
Esquivel try to place everybody in an event in
which he will win.
Then arrangements for an all-school party in the
spring must be made, and a reminder given that
the final duty of the class is to make the punch
for the school picnic in Tempe.
Before we leave, however, let's take a look at A
the familiar faces in the Sophomore Class.

Our large number of Freshmen came early in September.
They were new in OUR Scnoor. and were a little shy at
firsti but after their official welcome by the Sophomores,
they fell into the "hang of things". Let's go back to one
particular day in September - a day like no other in their
four years at high school, but one they will always remember.
It's nine o'clock and the school buses have just arrived with
their students, and the freshmen really cause a sensation. The
girls have original hair-do's with a two-inch starched strip
down the center and pin curls around the sides. They are
in harmony with costumes of Levis worn wrong side out
and gunny sack blouses. All this is set off with onion neck-
laces and blue and gold ribbons on toes of each bare foot.
The boys look "simply divine" in their dashing skirts and
off-the-shoulder blouses. Onion necklaces, starched hair, and
tennis shoes with no laces complete their attire.
Everyone is carrying a frying pan and a bucket, and all
seem to be attached to Sophomores. It's a lot of fun.
After this day of excitement, the Freshies settle down to
the less interesting dress and accustom themselves to the
daily routine of school life under the supervision of Mr.
Angermeyr and Mr. West. Later preparations are made
for their big party - the conclusion to April Frolics.

The ring of the bell, the hurry of students to various class
rooms and to the study hall, then silence as each teacher
takes the roll for tht hour.
In OUR SCHOOL there are six class periods each day, which
means that all L.H.S. students attended at least 3800 classes
this year or spent 190,000 minutes engaged in class work.
Walking from building to building and through the cor-
ridors, we hear strains of "Hall of Fame" as the band prac-
tices, the buzz of machinery from the shop, and from
doors and windows such questions and answers as:
"X--Y-l-2Z:15", 'fl think I should like to give a dramatic
reading in the contest this year." "Will you please help me
find a good biography of this author?" "There will be bas-
ketball practice at four o'clock this afternoon." "What is the
Bill of Rights?" "That is a delicious cake we baked." "I
can take dictation in shorthand and type sixty Words a
minute." "Do you know a synonym for indus-
trious?" "Please explain the difference in the
speed of light and that of sound." "The paper
will be out tomorrow." "I have just finished
my biology notebook."
Yes, there is much of the real business of going
to school-honest-to-goodness class work- at
Maybe, if you are real quiet, you may visit
some of the classes and see for yourself.
Students Are At Work
Bells ring and students file in and out of classes many times each day. They are busy
learning to Work with both their minds and their hands. Since We Wanted you to see them
at Work, We asked the photographer to take some pictures of various class room scenes.
The ensuing pages suggest the variety and scope of the Work at OUR SCHOOL.

have opportunities to plan parties, decorate for dances, attend
meetings, and take trips.
For student government, there's the Student Council where
their own representatives help make rules governing student
activities and assist in planning assemblies. This organiza-
tion has been in operation ever since there has been a high
school at Litchfield. A
An organization for girls is the Girls' League which was
first introduced twelve years ago. A similar organization for
boys, the Boys' Alliance, was started in 1948.
For the athletes, there's the "L" Club, for the electrically

Council Conducts Student Business
President James Ackman brought the first 1950-51 Student Council meeting to order.
Minutes of the last meeting were read and approved.
Throughout the year minutes have been read, corrected, added to, and approved. These
have recorded discussions of a Way to increase school spirit, a float in the Salad Bowl
Parade, a dance to start a record collection for the school, a program for Patrons' Day,
exchange assemblies, and many other important matters concerning the student body.
After James left in March for the Service, Kyle successfully carried on his work as
The Council considers their year a very successful one, as they believe they have car-
ried on the student business in the Way that the students wished.
When the bang of the gavel brings to close their last meeting, they will leave a little re-
luctantly, but with the assurance that a new council, that is just as good or better than
they Were, will come in and take over the job of student affairs.

Band Entertains Far And Near
The Litchfield High School Band in their brand new blue and gold uniforms looked
sharp at the football games this year, and their marching and playing added greatly to the
enthusiasm and the color of the games.
The band received applause and compliments at all public appearances which they
made. These included playing and marching in the Salad Bowl Parade, the Rodeo
Parade, at the State Fair, and at the University of Arizona for the homecoming game,
and at Litchfield High Patrons' Day. Also the band made an excellent showing on Music

Owls End Season With 2-6 Record
Football, the first sport of the year was a great success, not in the won and lost column-2-6
-but in sportsmanship. Superior stated that the Owls were the best sports they had met on the
field all year. Buckeye downed the Owl crew 51-18 in the opening game of the season with
Phil Tomlinson scoring the Owl's first touchdown of the year. The following week the Litch-
field squad lost to Peoria 19-0. Tolleson downed a fighting team, 39-6, as Pug Wood tallied
the Hrst touchdown on the home Held, but for the next two games it was the Owls 19-O
over St. Johns and a close 27-19 decision over the Phoenix Indians. As the game was being
broadcasted over KRIZ, Santa Cruz Qliloyj put the Owls back in the lost column 24-0, with
Scottsdale over the rugged Litchfield eleven the following week, 40-6. Superior outscored. the
Owls 39-13 to close the season.

Though Polley and Tomlinson were not constant scorers, they could always be depended upon
in their excellent defensive game. Brownlie also holds three letter stripes in football, one in

men on the team held an election which chose Mike Polley and
Phil Tomlinson as co-captains of the team. They are the
graduating seniors of the team.
At the end of the schedule the Owl nine had won 3 while
losing nine, but experience was gained on the diamond by the
prospects for next year's team. Returning lettermen are Jef-
feries, Sweeney, Galindo, Wood, Esquivel, Horton, Webb,

Here comes one of our students all dressed up in a suit.
It isn't often We get to see everyone looking so nice and that's
only when We have a formal dance.
The first one to come up each year is the Wild Harvest Ball
sponsored by the Boys' Alliance. That's right before Thanks-
giving. The boys work hard to get the gym decorated in
the fall colors-round up cornstalks and tables, hang crepe
paper, and string the lights to give that special effect. Then
at eight o'clock the guests arrive to dance until midnight
according to their programs.
The second is the Girls' League's Winter Fantasy. This year
the theme was Kdpidlf Kingdom. The girls did the decorat-
ing in red and white. Big red hearts with silhouettes in
the white centers highlighted the decorations. The girls
chose their dates and filled the programs to make
the evening enjoyable. Their Majesties, Phill
Tripp and Leone Sheppard reigned supreme over
The last big dance is the Junior-Senior Prom held
at the Wigwam. The Juniors Work all year to honor
the Seniors at this banquet and dance. With a
theme on April 14 of "An Evening in the Isles"
the Seniors may well feel honored.
These events are the highlights of the social year5
but besides these there are also class parties, after-
game dances, and conventions to make the year
g f at
Pictzlrerl, left to right, are: Bill Zeigler, Kay Jackson, Flo Ann Patterson, Keith Duncan, Johnny
Garcia, Ona Allen, Phill Tripp, Leone Sheppard, Judy Coor, Sue Singleton, Skip Taylor, Marilyn
McMillan, and Kyle Needham.
