Here at Mount Tahoma We have a great deal to be
proud of. We have a beautiful school, an enthusiastic student
body, and a conscientious faculty.
This year Mount Tahomans had something else to be
proud of - our championship basketball team. Coach Don
Moseid and his Mount Tahoma Thunderbirds did an extra-
ordinary job during this year's basketball season. The Thun-
derbirds started the season by Winning the Hoop-Go-Round
for the second year in a row. They went on to become the
first team in Tacoma's history to be undefeated in both the
City and Capital Leagues and in regular season play.
Through their fine example of hard Work and good
sportsmanship, Coach Moseid andihis Thunderbirds boosted
the pride and spirit of Mount Tahomans to an all-time high.
Because We feel that they have achieved the most for
Mount T ahoma this year, we are proud to dedicate the
1964-1965 Totem to NDashin, Don and his boysf'

A.S.F. EUNTRIBUTES TU THE SEHUUUS SUCCESS
The most fundamental organization governing
Mount Tahomas student body is the Associated
Student Federation. Tremendous responsibilty is
shown each morning in room l43 as the council
carries out its varied duties which involve the
authorization of posters and sales, the approval of
all social athletic events, and the planning and
execution of the school's extracurricular budget.
However, the most vital duty of the ASF is the
efficient governing of the Mount Tahoma student
The representatives of ASF are selected from the
executive posts of the three classes, including class
and club presidents and the class representatives

Each and every senior Will recall his own memories gained at Mount
Tahoma. Some have been here the lull three years, others only a short time.
As sophomores we had three years to anticipate activities, such as proms,
tolos, pep Weeks, balls, the i'big" cruise, picnics, banquets, festivals, and
championship athletic teams. Now, as seniors, we recall our memories
and eagerly await entering the adult world - some as students in institutes
of higher education, and others as participants oi the Working force E each
in his Way striving to pursue his lifetime goal.
The seniors ot the class ot "65'l will never forget being known and
respected as "THE CLASS WITH ALL THE Dl:tlVE."

SENIOR BALI.: Linda Hale and Ion Mowry.
The Seniors of the Class of "ESS" danced away
the night of May 22. Through the efforts of
co-chairmen Linda Hale and Ion Mowry, and
other seniors, an evening of "Golden Memore
ies" was provided. The beautiful view from the
Browns' Point Clubhouse along with the im-
pressive decorations set the mood for a most
successful Senior Ball.
The day of Iune I5 had come. Commencement was over,
and thanks to Terry Croghan and Nanci Rahm, the new alumni
of Mount Tahoma were able to take a cruise to Dr. Schultzs
island, where they danced, ate, and laughed the night away.
In the early morning all piled back into the boat for the
return trip home. Filled with happiness and laughter, the
seniors enjoyed their last moments together as a class, each
realizing the future that lay ahead.

Connie Rasmussen and Don Herbert represented Mount
Tahoma at the Evergreen Girls' and Boys' States, respec-

the girls at Central Washington State College, while the
boys occupied the campus at Pacific Lutheran University.
At both conventions Connie and Don took part in setting
up state governments with subdivisions of counties and
cities. Elections were held in which state officials were
selected. Meetings were held in which the solving of the
state problems was the main purpose.
However, during the week all was not work. Recreational
activities and facilities were offered, friends were being

School board members of the Tacoma District,
A Message for Mount Tahoma Graduating Seniors
The graduating seniors of l965 have been a part of an eventful period in
school history. As students you have personally experienced many of the
changes that have been taking place in the school curriculum. l hope each
of you will agree with me that these changes have provided a greater scope
of opportunity and have enabled you to better prepare for your future. What
lies ahead for you is certain to be just as exciting. lf l can make any certain
prediction, it Will be that more changes will talce placeg and if l can give any
advice, it is to expect and be prepared for changes. l am confident that you
are better prepared to face change than any preceding generation, I would
Wish each graduating senior success in a career and satisfaction in living
in the years ahead.
MUUNT TAHUMIYS EFFIEIENT LEADERS ll
The challenge of the world to high school graduates was never greater than it is today. Violent changes are
taking place. Minorities in our own country are demanding equality, as guaranteed by the Constitution. Coun-
tries all over the world are no longer satisfied to be the pawns of imperialistic powers. Everyone wants the kind
of life that will give him freedom, equality, and recognition. Present and future citizens will have some difficult
and important decisions regarding the place of these peoples in our local and worldfwide communities.
Unbelievable changes are taking place in science. Every few months new and startling reports tell us about the
next step in space flight. Before long someone will be landing on the moon. After this development, the whole
universe will be within reach. The new advancement begun by these explorations will radiate throughout the
entire world. The economy will explode with new demands. New frontiers will be opened for exploration. And
again, many decisions will have to be faced by the citizens of this country f individual and national ones.
Rapid changes are continuing to take place in our economy. Automation is creeping into every business and
industry. lt is beginning to be felt by those with unskilled and semi-skilled positions - - they are losing their jobs.
Television programs are beginning to picture men who have been successful production workers but who are
now walking the streets without a source of income. This means retraining, re-education, reedevelopment of skills
to fit a new way of life. Decisions againl
ln reality, everywhere the high school graduate looks today he sees the necessity for devisions. He must choose
from a multitude of occupations for his life work, he must choose from a plethora of training institutions for further
education, he must choose where he wants to live. And in addition, he must be ready to help make decisions
in an increasingly complex world of human relations.
The staff at Mount Tahoma has tried to present a curriculum of general education that would help each student
to become better prepared to make some of these decisions. We hope we have been succssful. More than this,
however, we hope that we have given to each graduate the desire to continue to learn and grow. It is only by
continued growth that we shall be able to successfully face the future and the important choices that must
On behalf of the entire staff, l wish to express to each of you sincere best wishes for your future.

TAIN ADMINISTRATIVE RESPUNSIBILITIES
Because of our unigue political and economic structure,
every American is afforded the greatest opportunity mankind
has ever known for education, self development, and self
fulfillment, Within the framework of this system is the opporf
tunity for citizens to develop themselves to their highest levels,
through study and assimilation of the best thought of mankind.
Every person has the right to a sound, complete education
that will enable him to become a responsible, worthwhile
citizen and to lead a rich and rewarding personal life. Though
the student has this right to an education, he has a correspond-
ing obligation to utilize his educational opportunities to a
maximum. Every student should have the opportunity to
develop skills in arithmetic, reading, and oral and written
expression. From his school experiences he should create an
appreciation of our democratic heritage and should stimulate
growth in factual knowledge, critical thinking, cultural values,
ethical stands and social responsibility. Every student should
use his skills and knowledge to prepare and progress in
endeavors of value to himself and society,
lt is our responsibility to define traditional values in terms
fitting for our place in our American Society and our countrys
new place in the world. We can demonstrate this personal
responsibility by studying public issues, supporting good legis-
lation and helping to elect good public representatives. We
can also demonstrate our responsibility by our choice of
personal goals and by what we think, say, and do in our daily
lives. If we are responsible in our beliefs concerning freedom,
freedom of opportunity and the essential dignity of each indivf
idual, and if we practice and protect these ideals in our daily
lives, we affirm and birng to life a heritage that belongs
equally to all of us,
The tomorrow for which we learn and build must be fashf
ioned with the full recognition that as individuals we play
a small but highly significant role. The results of our single
efforts may not be visible to us, but our responsibility is no
less great. Enrolled in our classes today are the teachers,
decorators, engineers, custodians, doctors, lawyers and laborf
ers of the years ahead, lt is hoped that all of us will be aware
of and sensitive to the dignity and worth of all kinds of honest
endeavors and to help others, when possible, to achieve their
fullest potentiality. This is highly important for the welfare
of the individual and for the sake of our society, because from
the individual moral fiber our national character is woven,

Okay, stick out your tongue.
Our nurse, Mrs. Wilkins, and her
assistants perform one of the most im-
portant tasks in our school. This year,
as always, Mrs. Wilkins has insured
healthful conditions within Mount Tae
homa and it is always a comfort to
know that someone of experience is
here when we need her.
During the past year, students at
Mount Tahoma have, through their
frequent use, shown appreciation of
and dependence upon the beautiful
and spacious library available. Under
the supervision of Mrs. Faure and her
assistants, the library was able to offer
many sources of help and information.

Mount Tahoma is fortunate in
having a crew of custodians second
to none. They have kept the school
clean and in Working order during
the school year. Their cheertul dis-
position is a noted characteristic
around the campus. lt it were not
for the Work of these men every
spilled jar ot ink would be unclean-
ed, every leaky pipe would still
leak, and the entire maintenance
ot the school would go unattended.
A special thanks is extended to
each custodian for his friendly atti-
tude and patience.
To prepare daily meals that sat-
isty hundreds ot ditterent appetities
and still remain nourishing is the
job of our cooks. They are also
responsible for keeping the clean,
healthy atmosphere ot the cafeter-
ia and supervising the students
Who work in the kitchen. Theirs is
not a job easily done and We at
Mount Tahoma extend to each of
these ladies thanks and apprecia-
tion tor their Work.

As each school year begins, Mount Tahoma competes with
Lincoln High School in an Activity Ticket Contest. This year,
in the second annual contest with Lincoln, Mount Tahoma
won by a margin ot eight and one-halt percent. Last year,
Lincoln could compliment itself on a victory of only one-halt
ot one percent. Mount Tahoma's victory in the activity ticket
contest illustrated the vivacious spirit and tremendous pride
the students at Mount Tahoma hold tor their school.
As winners ot this contest, Mount Tahoma received seventy-
tive percent ot the protits from the dance which took place on
October l5, l965 in the Lincoln gym. The defeated Lincoln
High School received twentyetive percent ot the profits.
While the contest between the two schools was in progress,
there was also a contest between each class to decide who
would represent their class in Royalty. The roll room from each
class with the highest percentage ot activity tickets sold were
rewarded by the opportunity to chose a princess tor Royalty.
Mount Tahomas senior princess had the honor ot reigning as
Queen ot the dance since her class and school won the contest.
Representing Mount Tahoma as royalty were: Nancy Martens,
Senior Princess, Charlene DeCaterina, lunior Princess, and
Kris larger, Sophomore Princess. At the dance, Queen Nancy
received a bouquet ot red roses. The night proved to be very
enjoyable tor the students, the Queen and her court. The
victory in the activity ticket contest is proot that Mount Tahoma
does the best in everything they pursue,

PENNY DROST SHERRIL1. BARTOY DONNA LEE MASSOTH
With a radiant smile, Sherrill Bartoy accepted the bouquet of daffodils from Mayor Harold
Tollefson and began her reign as Mount Tahoma's Daffodil Princess on the evening of
Ianuary l4th. The selections took place in the auditorium of Stadium High School. Along
with Sherrill, the two other candidates who accompanied her from Mount Tahoma were
Penny Drost and Donna Lee Massoth. Each of the candidates from the four Tacoma high
schools were judged on the basis of poise, appearance and speaking ability. Each and
every girl did an excellent job of representing her school, and the judges had a difficult
time in selecting the four princesses. But finally, Diane Lind from Stadium, Gretchen
Klinkert from Lincoln, Sue Richmond from Wilson, and our own Sherrill Bartoy were the
judges' choice to run for Daffodil Queen. Sherrill and these girls had several weeks of
busy activities to look forward to before the queens selection at Spartan Hall in Sumner.
Though Sherrill was not chosen as Queen of the Daffodil Festival, We will all remember
her as our own queen, and on April 9, the day of the big parade, all the spectators could
see that Mount Tahoma is a very proud school to have Sherrill as its princess.

Annuals were sold under a new system this year. They
went on sale during December and all those who wished
to purchase a TOTEM either made a down payment or
paid for it all at once. In this way, the TOTEM staff knew
exactly how many annuals to order.
Many hours of frustration, hard work, and fun were spent

PRUUIILY, JUINS GIRLS IN LASTING FRIENDSHIP
W Is na.
Mount Tahoma girls invade Lincoln territory.

Mount Tahoma takes pride in its Girls' Hon-
orary Organization, Cleophas. To become a
member of Cleophas a girl must represent the
name of the club, which is Hebrew for "friend-
ship," and also maintain a 2,8 accumulative
grade point average while serving the school.
Cleophas began a year of excitement and
enthusiasm with the initiation and traditional
slumber party for new members. Through
service to Mount Tahoma, the members usher-
ed at school plays, concerts, and the T-Bird
relays, as well as serving at the various teach-
ers' teas. One of Cleophas' most time-consum-
ing activities this year was the organization of
the Homecoming dance and reception. It is
not uncommon to see a Cleophas member
selling donuts, scrubbing cars, or raking leaves
in order to add to they treasury. Not only does
Cleophas serve its school, but during the fall
the members served their community at South
Tacoma Chevrolet and Russ Dunmire's Olds-
mobile. To say farewell to the seniors and to
recollect memories shared by all, a final gath-
ering Was held to end the year.
Imagination flows and the new members experience an unforgettable initiation.

THE GIRLS AT MOUNT TAHUMA WORK A5 UNE UNIT
Starting this year's activities with the
Big and Little Sister Picnic in the summer,
Girls' Club continued their list of events
with the Welcoming Sophomore Potluck
held early in the year. Following these
were the other Girls' Club sponsored pro-
jects including "Wonderland by Night,"
this year's theme for the annual tolo, held
on December 12.
Each girl in school is automatically a
member of Girls' Club, which is divided
into three different departments: Social,
Service, and Friendship. This gives each
member a chance to participate in the type
of Work she enjoys most.
One of the most rewarding projects this
year was the adoption of a little girl from
Rainier School in Buckley. Girls' Club
members worked hard on each project as-
signed to them and have truly offered their
services to the enrichment of Mount

To keep in step, the Girls' Club sponsored the annual
Christmas Tolo and the Father-Daughter Banquet during
the school year of l964-55. The girls can congratulate
themselves on two very successful events. The Tolo was
held on December l2th with the enchanting theme, 'lWon-
derland by Night." After many hectic weeks of prepara-
tion the couples relaxed to the peaceful music of the Dan
Waddell Quintette. The Queen and her court were pre-
sented during the evening. As everyone left for their
dinner engagements, the couples gathered memories of
the successful dance.
"King of the Parade" was the theme to honor the girls'
fathers at the banquet. The friendly atmosphere was in-
a creased by the clever decorations of Easter bunnies,
baskets, and golden crowns. The evening was begun
with a delicious dinner. The program which followed
consisted of speeches about how "grand" fathers and
daughters are. A fashion show was presented with all
the girls wearing light, gay dresses which they had made.
The night was concluded by music by the Mount Tahoma
Girls' Trio. All the fathers thanked their daughters for
such a wonderful night.
Something new was tried this year, a Girls' Club All-
School Dance. The students danced to the gay music of
the Deacons. The theme, "Spring Fling," was comple
mented by flowers and pretty girls. Once again, the Girls'
Club provided a fun-filled evening for Mount Tahoma
at the 'Spring Fling'
duce an enchanting atmosphere. Co-Chairmens Linda Keith and lan Tucker.

reality rests, and also to tind guide posts tor the direc-
tions of human conduct.
Yearly activities included various candy sales and
car washes tor the purpose ot promoting greater inter-
est in the club and to obtain additional materials tor
future study by Mount Tahoma students.

The T-Birds, under the leadership ot Coach Gregg Friberg, opened their season With an impressive victory over

mined tootball. Lead by experience in the line and tine support from an impressive group ot sophomores, the TfBirds
posed as a threat to all their opponents. lnjuries to the experienced players and an excedingly tough schedule, ine
cluding three stateerated teams, kept the T-Birds from attaining an outstanding record. The highlight ot the season

an impressive record of 7 Wins and no defeats in capturing the City League Championship in its division. This
exceptionally outstanding team was only scored upon once in the entire season, this being a touchdown by Wilson

For the first time in the history of high school baslietballia team went undefeated for the entire season, this team was the
mighty T-Birds of Mount Tahoma. Behind the able coaching of Don Mosied, the talented T-Birds started the season off right
by winning the Hoop-Go-Round for the second straight year. From that point on the Thunderbirds picked up momentum
with every victory, until in the final stages of the season their poise enabled them to withstand the pressure exerted on
With the final regular season game over the Thunderbirds prepared themselves for the District Two regional games.
Facing the Renton lndians, the eventual regional champs, the T-Birds Went cold offensively and failed to Contain the hotf
shooting lndians, in losing their first game of the season.
The true power and overall superiority of the Mount Tahoma Thunderbirds is shown by their domination of the All-City
selections. This fine team has set a tremendous standard for upcoming T-Bird teams.
MOUNT TAHUMA RATED SEEUND IN AA PULL
ln only four short years as a coach, Don Mosied has compiled an out-
standing record. Progressing from a dismal two and eighteen season in his
first year to a twenty and ought season this year, Coach Mosied has made
his coaching prowess felt throughout the state.
Another commendable coaching job is being done in Mount Tahoma
basketball. Reserve Coach Theno has, for the past four years, groomed his
eager young reserve athletes for future varsity action.
Mount Tahoma athletes usually, unless they are exceptional, begin at
some level below varsity. One of these levels is sophomore athletics. At
this level the TfBirds have two fine coaches of sophomore basketball in lim
McDonald and Larry Ubben. Cver the years they have turned out some
good hopefuls for Coach Mosieds varsity.

In his fourth year of coaching the sopho-

not always in the winner's circle, enjoyed a
satisfactory season. Both sophomore teams
were the earliest of the hoopsters as they
started their practices at 6:00 a.m. They may
have been tired, but the eager sophomores
rarely failed to make their early morning work
outs, Even though they were limited to floor
space, the sophs took advantage of every min-
ute in developing their scrappy teams.
This year's Golds under the guidance of
Coach Larry Ubben, had a very successful
season, Although they didn't win the Champ-
ionship, they represented Mount Tahoma in
a truly fine fashion. They showed improve-
ment throughout the season and were able
to defeat the rival reds in both games. The
competition was keen between these strong
spirited sophomores and many of them are
looking forward to next year's varsity and

Behind hardhitting and fine defensive play, the Thunderbirds started their action with a fine pre-season record. As their
pitching improved, the Thunderbirds began making their presence felt and showed signs of making their pre-season co-
favorite predictions come true. Coach Mellor relied heavily on a young infield and an experienced outfield to come up with
one of the finest defensive squads in either league. With a show of improvement in the area of pitching, Coach Mellor's
T-Bird baseball squad had the potential of becoming the best ever at Mount Tahoma.

in the Federal Way lnvitationals, and the Daffodil Relays, were lor the second straight year. Beginning early in the tall,
many of Coach Ehrenheim's cindermen began getting in shape tor the up coming season. This year's team, which was
greater in depth than any previous team, was Coach Ehrenheim's hopes for statewide recognition. By improving, each track-
ster helped fill the void lett by graduation ot last year. Although the team lost some standouts in track, overall depth made
this year's team even better than any previous track team at Mount Tahoma. Congratulations to Coaches Ehrenheim and
Cowling for their tine ettort in building an outstanding track squad.

On becoming a member of the student federation of Mount Tahoma, the
Sophomore felt a little confused and dejected as he wandered aimlessly
around the halls. However, as the days quickly passed, the lonely Sopho-
more found strangers to be friends and he found his position in the high
school life. Within the first month of the school year, an election was held
in which the officers were chosen to lead their class to success. Colorful
and original campaigns showed the upperclassmen that the Sophomores
had a class that is really "revin". As the Sophomores participated in the
pep assemblies, clubs, and games, a feeling of respect towards the service
for Mount Tahoma developed. As the year climaxed, the Sophomore antici-
pated becoming an upperclassman and a leader of the school.

Ittakes many hours, much patience, and several disagreements to make a yearbook become a reality.
As spring came upon us and those deadlines neared, moments of panic and fury became ever present.
Now that the all-night marathon slave sessions are Complete I can feel free to say those many thank-
yous that each of my staff members so duly deserves.
To Autumn Alferness and lan Robben -e It is amazing how those long hours of procrastination and
selection could produce such a fine section. To Ian and Autumn go a special thank you for a part in
this book that is new, different, and well done.
To Pat Spencer -A Few people, especially boys, are unaware of the many girls' activity programs that
are carried on each year at Mount Tahoma. Pat was given the job of presenting these girls as they
are seen marching down the street, splashing about in the pool or flashing around in the gym.
To Sherm Card 4 As deadlines pressed closer and frustration grew great, "Mr. Artist" came through
wonderfully to fill space where unknown pictures were to be, Thanks to the "greatest" artist ever.
To Nancy Rowen e Nancy joined the staff late and was not really given a great deal to do, but I feel
what she did have assigned to her, she finished extremely well. She is responsible for our dedication
and the presentation of the Tacoma School Board Members.
To Dave Easley F Mr. Art Critic was the person who took those many needed trips downtown that are
so essential to complete an annual. Dave' was also found leading many discussions in the evening
that left the boys staying up long past bedtime each night.
To Iulie Rush - Another late comer, lulie found her assignment to be small, but very important to
many seniors. She was given the job of producing this year's Senior Hall of Fame.
To Ian Berg f Her job was one that entailed many trying moments while typing copy for the Totem.
If you don't believe me try reading some one else's writing some time. Thank you, Ian, for doing a fine
To Cathi Colyar M Cathi was a real asset to our staff this year. Last year she became very experienced
in putting out an annual, but this year we lost her services for the first part of the year. When she
came she did a real fine job of helping when needed. Thanks, Cath.
To Sherry Knapp - The only time the business end of the annual got messed up was when I felt I
knew something about it. Thank you, Sherry, for a fine job.
To Yvonne Clements A Yvonne was one of the few experienced members who entered our staff in
the fall. Because of her ability, hard work and fine ideas she was able to come up with the finest
class picture section ever assembled at Mount Tahoma.
To Linda Thompson - To Linda goes a special thank you for filling in at the first of the year.for Cathi
when she left. Linda, as well as Linda Hale, was responsible for the new ideas and the big changes in
the Organizations Section.
To Colleen Wellen - Colleen was a welcome addition to our staff this year. She was part of a group
that did an outstanding job on the class picture section.
To Dennis Dudley and Harlan Holcomb - I believe that it is necessary to recognize the fact that the
Athletic Section is by far the hardest to complete. This year they finished only two weeks after the
deadline. I feel that Dennis and Harlan did a fine job. You see, student photography has been a problem
throughout the year and this kind of photography is essential in order to produce an effective section.
To Sue Sebade - A person who is given the job of typist for a yearbook holds a position not to be
envied. I am sure Sue will never forget the many hours she spent writing every name in the school and
then typing each to complete our eight page index.
To leannette Hanson - No one fits the name of "hardworker" better than Ieannette. All I can say is
thank you, Ieannette, for many long hours of devoted work and a fine section.
To Linda Hale - Linda was responsible for the excellent ideas for a new format for our Organization
Section. To Linda goes a big thank you for a fine job.
To Mr. Ryan - Mr. Ryan has left me with many memories I am sure I will never forget. He is beyond
a doubt a wonderful personality, a great advisor, and one who I was always able to look to for help.
Thank you, Mr. Ryan, for everything.
Thanks to Miss Cole and her staff, Iohnson-Cox Printers, and Richards Studio, for their never-ending
help on the TOTEM. It has been a pleasure working with these people to make the TOTEM a reality.
To the Senior Class 4 Because the great class of 1955 was so willing to donate a portion of the treasury
to the annual, we were able to present the beautiful color picture found in the front and back of the
I can now only hope that the i965 TOTEM staff has produced a story of the year that may be enjoyed
by the faculty and students for many years to come. Thank you.
