Leaves, leaves and more leaves iespecially green onesl are seen milling about Trinidad High School's portals. First Freshman: "N-n-now-now what do you do?" Second Freshman: 'Gosh, don't ask meg ask that tall boy stand- ing over there." fYou know the consequences !J Voice of Time: Thus a bashful crop of Freshmen began their ca- reer timidly in the fall of 1934. Continually breaking all speed and traffic regulations in the halls and then bothering Mrs. Baldwin for tardy admits, these freshmen were, according to custom, ridi- culed by the whole school, and in addition they made excellent tar- gets for the hardened upperclass- men, who poked endless fun at them. But even through all these trials, they survived, and, having been assigned seats in the audi- torium, elected Tom Meadows as the head of the class. The following year, gaining con- fidence and preparing to wreak vengeance on the future freshmen, this group of sophomores became very active. The boys began training in all the sports, such as football, Basketball, track, and tennis, and the girls also took ac- tive part in tennis, debate, mixed chorus, Drum and Bugle Corps, Girls Reserves, and other activi- ties. David Jackson was elected president and during the year one of the outstanding events in which many of the members of this class participated, was the "Town Hall Revue," sponsored by the Athletic Association of the school under the excellent guidance of Mr. Fred Couey. This affair was a huge success-due to the sophomore element, no doubt! Then in due time they became juniors. Their prestige increased, and they gained the coveted title of Uupperclassmeni' Don Berg was chosen class pre ident that year. More and more of the members began to distinguish themselves in athletic contests and in scholastic work. The Girls Athletic Asso- Lucille Montoya ciation was introduced into the school curriculum, and a great number of junior girls became members. The Student Council as well as other activities began to be dominated by the juniors. They sold candy at the games and spon- sored the selling of postcards, pre- senting an air-view of Trinidad High School. These projects were for the benefit of the promenade. A junior: "Come help me with this crepe, it's torn." Another junior: "All right. Say, I hope the balloons don't lose all their air by tonight. Give me that hammer." Voice of Time: Finally the,so- cial climax of the school-year, the Junior-Senior Promenade, arrived. Intrusted to the juniors and their sponsor, Miss Howell, it was a de- lightful affair. To the music of Ken Wolfe's orchestra dancing was enjoyed from nine to twelve in a cool, latticed Valencia vine- yard. Just after the juniors had finished entertaining their beloved enemies, the seniors, rivalry be- tween these two classes reached its highest peak at the Junior-Sen- lor Field Day. After an excited contest, the juniors triumphed, much to their delight. At the end of that year the juniors were haughty and proud. They were now seniors. They felt like sen- iors and made little effort to con- ceal their glory. That puny class of 1934 had at last risen to the highest peak in high school. They had reached the precious senior seats in the auditorium the time- honored title, "Seniors"g and the able tutelage of Miss Hunt, Miss Nash and Mr. Mertz. The senior calendar was an interesting one throughout the year. Assemblies for the purpose of giving inter- views to college representatives were often called. Class meetings became more frequent. Mention should be made of the work of seniors on the student council, the efforts of which made so many enjoyable assemblies and matinees possible, and brought Trinidad High School so many excellent speakers. Class jewelry, com- Page Twenty nine CLASS H I S TOR Y-Continued mencement announcements grad- uation pictures, and caps and gowns were discussed. Then so- cial events exclusively for seniors came in quick succession. The senior girls' tea given by the City Federation of Women's Clubs was one of the liveliest affairs. First a dessert luncheon was served at the Columbian Hotel. This was followed by a double feature at the West Theatre. The senior play was given on Friday, May 13. A comedy in three acts, "Honor Bright," was successful both dra- matically and financially. The cast consisted of: Mildred Roche, Dean Mabry, Paul Fine, Margaret Mae Floyd, Doris Far- ber, Virginia Sisk, Janet Moore, Edna Jane Barker, Carson Shroads, Charles Harvey, Arthur Clements. Cecil Schrader, Ben Kendall, John Reed, and Harold Crawford. On May 29 came the memorable Baccalaureate service. The Reverend C. L. Ramme deliv- ered a most inspiring address. On May 31 diplomas were awarded at the Commencement exercises, which marked the formal crossing of the threshold of life. Certainly at the end of four years in Trinidad High School, the seniors could say from experience that when they saw its portals close behind them, they were bet- ter prepared for life and its trials than when they entered them. Senior No. 1: "You know, it's been fun, after all." fsniffl Senior No. 2: f'Yes, it has. I sort of hate to leave.

And so the Seniors of '38 came and went and Seniors for years to come will be caming and wenting, but 'neveriwill they surpass the CLASS OF '38. Class Will We, the honored, distinguished, respected f?j Senior Class of 1938, do here and now make, publish, and earnestly declare this our last will and testament, thereby annul- ling all testaments which may have been executed in the past. First, as all other seniors have done in bygone years, we do be- bequeath our most desirable places of honor and respect in the back of the auditorium, our Assembly seats, to the Class of 1939, thus giving them the unquestionable right to sell or devise them to the future Freshmen. May they bear with reverence and dignity the responsibilities due this position. We also wish them luck in attain- ing their goals of ambition in 1939. Second, we bequeath unto the Sophomore class the honor of yell- ing against the Seniors and dunk- ing the '39 Seniors during the Jun- ior-Senior Field Day program. CII' they have what it takes, as we did.J To the Class of '40 we also bequeath the pleasure of enter- taining the Seniors with a Junior- Senior Prom. Third, to the Freshmen we will the right to become Sophomores and the doubtful privileges of ad- vising the future Freshmen. We will to the aforesaid future Fresh- men the courage necessary wil- fully to disobey those high-pow- ered Seniors who command them to "buy an assembly seat," or "take the elevator." We also de- vise and bequeath to these same Freshmen the embarrassing mo- ments suffered when we were be- wildered at the procedure of ob- taining an admit for being late to class, after some upper classmen had politely escorted us to the wrong room. We leave you the challenge of devising an answer to the oft-repeated query that goes: "If nine hundred and fifty students can get to class on time, why ca.n't you?" We never could James Wood think of a suitable retaliation. We prophecy that high honor will be the destiny of the genius who for- mulates a successful answer. All the members of the Senior Class will loyalty, love, and pride in T. H. S. to the incoming Senior Class of 1938-1939. Finally, we bequeath certain characteristic traits to those in- dividuals capable of furthering their development, to-wit and as follows: Marjorie-Joe Wheeler wills to the most aspiring freshman girl a well-used curling iron, along with her suave coiffure. Cecil Schrader wills to the most hopeful fresh- man Romeo his twelve passenger bus ,and such advice as may be necessary for satisfactory utiliza- tion thereof. The Elegant Eight leave eight pairs of "number three" shoes and the same number of elaborate hats, along with their nifty looks to the Jolly Juniors, Keith Kil- gore wills his Texas whang to Joe Caldwell. Betty Dickinson be- queaths her brilliant musical abil- ity to Ruby Stroman. Carson Shroads wills to Melvin Germer and Carl Risley a peaches and cream complexion to be divided equally between the two. He trusts that it will be used to good advantage. "Hero1dini the Magi- cian" Stratton wills his prestidigi- tative proclivities to needy Jun- iors, to be used to advantage in a test. Mildred Roche wills her dra- matic ability to Maxine Cook. Ben "Godsgifttotheladies" K e n d al l wills an unused portion of "Umph" to Temple Rowe. Edna Jane Bar- ker wills her silvery giggle to Flo- ra East. Betty Douglass wills her artistic ability to Arlene Phillips. Virginia Sisk wills her gift of gab and Sisky lisp to Rose Bates. Bill Chenoweth wills his pixilated pro- clivities to Hayward Toler. Rudy Lordnich and Ernest Saliba will their mighty backs to next year's Page Thirty three CLASS WILL-Continued football team. MacKenzie David- son and Leo Oleskevich will two pairs of big shoes to whomever Coach Holt may develop to fill them. Don Berg wills his execu- tive abilities to Carl Risley. Red Goodson wills his wealth of red hair and a bottle of freckle lotion to Jimmy Mason. George Spahr wills his waistline to Edwin Bear- den. May Edwin handle it as ca- pably as George. Margaret Mae Floyd wills her outstanding scho- lastic abilities to Louis Bonato, as well as her ability to talk her way into the hearts of her teachers to Betty Lott. Marjorie Gahm leaves to Helen Sutherland a Well- worn vocabulary. Harold Craw- ford wills "Ten Baby Fingers and Ten Baby Toes' 'to the most apt Junior Paderewski. Paul Fine wills a collection of miscellaneous Scariano. Betty Moore wil s her and peculiar atiainrqeng tofrankg kan g Llglity to Charlotte Jaapg Jamg llgcaluso and Steve Grosso leave behind a lot of flash and speed on the gridiron to be divided among Coach Walton's next year's backfield. "Apollo and the Discus" Schneburg wills his discus to "Shoulders" Browning. Wilber "Man About Town" Grisham wills his ability and affability and pleasant personality to the Junior girls. "Candy King" David Jack- son passes his crown to the Jimior with the strongest will, along with the admonition, "Don't eat up the profits!" Buddy Pfalmer leaves hisbig Hbeootiful' blue eyes to sus- ceptible Junior girls. CLong may they roll!! Bill Stonebraker wills his tennis ability to J. W. Walker. Charles Maio wills his ability as an alchemist to Jimmy Mason. Flash! This document is hereby sub- mitted and is declared to be the last will and testament of a great Page Thirty-four and honorable class. It is in all seriousness that we submit the earnest recommendation that the foregoing bequests be so utilized that honor and glory may be real- ized by those favored members of the Junior Class. It is our hope that in departing we leave behind us traditions of high idealism, nobly fulfilled and graciously passed on to those who will follow us to glory. As we have assiduously endeavored to emulate our predecessors, so we now here- by recommend that you follow with discretion the footprints that we have immortalized in these shifting "sands of time." May your hearts be strengthened by the heritage that we have left you, so that you, too, may valor- ously struggle to attain those ideals emblazoned across the morning sky that marks the dawning of a new day for you who have not yet attained, as we have, the highest pinnacle of suc- cess. As we gaze back from the lofty heights and see in the faces of you who are still undergradu- ates that shining promise that holds for the youth of the World a promise of a greater destiny, we are encouraged and inspired to strive for greater achievements ourselves. fahem! ahemlj In Witness Vifhereof we set I thank heavenj our hand and seal on this 6th day of May, in the Year of our Lord, Nineteen Hun- dred and Thirty-Eight.

Being sent to the bank with such a large sum of money- exactly forty thousand dollars- was quite a responsibility, and I was not a little nervous. Think- ing about the series of robberies in town during the past week added to my uneasiness. Mr. Tomilson had been warned concerning a cer- tain gang that might be waiting for the messenger on his trip to the bank. I covered the first few blocks without anything of particular no- tice presenting itself. Then, as I turned the corner at Second and Madison Streets, I noticed a large man, wearing a heavy overcoat, standing in the entrance of a near- by clothing store. His hat was pulled down over his eyes, but I noticed that he was watching me very closely. I stopped and pre- tending to see someone on the other side of the street, crossed to the opposite sidewalk. In one hasty glance over my shoulder, I noticed that he was still watching me. His appearance in every respect was that of a hardened criminal. Wishing to es- cape his constant stare, I turned up the next side street. I had gone but a few steps when some- one behind me demanded in a harsh voice, "Stick 'em up, and don't make any noise." Whirling about, I found myself facing a clean-shaven, sharp-fea- tured, middle-aged man, holding a revolver in his hand. "Hand me that," he demanded, pointing to the suitcase contain- ing the money. Just as I handed him the suit- case, two other men stepped out of a near-by alley and joined him. Satisfied that I was unarmed, the first put the revolver into his coat pocket and told his assistants to take the suitcase to the car. They had just turned away when the man I had seen standing in the clothing store entrance came around the corner, as I supposed, to assist in the robbery. But my almost certain judgment was shat- tered when I saw that he was fol- lowed by Police Sergeant Mar- lowe and another officer. After the robbers were handcuffed and my suitcase returned, Sergeant Marlowe introduced me to Freder- ick Pickering-a federal detective, noted for his amazingly clever ar- rests. We Don"l' Wanf War! George Spalu- "War is declared!" The youth of the nation, looking upon the bloody strife in foreign countries and upon the turmoil in his own land, dreads the day when these headlines will appear in his own newspapers. His reason for this dread is not hard to find. The young man of today enters the adult world with many ambitions and hopes. He faces the future eagerly and accepts responsibili- ties willingly. All he asks in re- turn is safety and security. However, when war interrupts the life of this young man, his plans for the future are tumbled into uncertainty. He has educated- himself for a secure world, not for a world made uncertain by war. He has hopes of making a place for himself in life. He cannot do this if war is declared. He has high ideals, but these ideals cannot be realized in time of strife. In brief, the future for which he has planned is lost to him, possibly forever. Do you wonder, then, that the youth of America today join in the cry, "We don't want war?" Page Thirty five Newspaper Headlines "Wuxtra! Wuxtra! Read all about it." This little chap sang out from his news-stand on the corner of the busy thoroughfare. He was far from a Carusog nevertheless his shrill voice attracted the pass- ers-by just as the famous oper- atic star's voice might have at- tracted them. A hurrying business man rushed up, tossed a dime into the palm of the news-boy, secured his "Wuxtra," paused long enough to scan the headlines, then stuffed the paper under his arm and has- tened on his way, probably never again to look at it. Thus it is with the great ma- jority of the busy public. They obtain their news from the head- lines. This fact makes the head- lines the most important feature of a newspaper. The men who compose them are journalistic ar- tists, skilled in the use of words and masters of the principles of psychology. It takes real ingenuity to devise an attractive headline. Simple as it may seem when it is read, it can, in truth, be composed only by an expert who has had many years of experience in newspaper work. A headline must be com- posed in such a manner that it will attract the eye and captivate the attention. It must be terse and symmetrical - that is, have uniformity, brevity, and technical balance, and yet give the reader an adequate idea of the news it represents . In achieving this end the composer renders both his em- ployer and the purchaser of the newspaper a distinct service. He enables the publisher to sell his paper, and the buyer to get his news in the form in which he wants it. The Unknown Soldier Across the historic Potomac River, amid the murmurous si- lence of the trees on the slopes of Arlington, a vast army now lies at rest in the bivouac of the dead. Here slumber many of the nation's heroes-men who have courageously served their country both in peace and in war. How- ever, among all the tombs that are honored by mighty historical names, there is one particular monument that is sought by all, one that does not bear a name. Before it paces a sentryg above it flies the nation's flag, around it are' always groups of people pay ing silent homage. It is the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. No name, no date, no deed is engraved on the stone, for the soldier buried here is known only to God. Page Thirty-six Yet something is known ,after all, about the boy laid here at rest. He is one of the thousands of American lads who left the farm or village or city or school to fight briefly on the bloody fields of France. He is one of the many who sacrificed love, life, and iden- tity for a profound ideal. Per- haps a faint ray of comfort would enter into the hearts of the thou- sands of mothers who have knelt before this shrine with the agony of uncertainty tugging at their hearts if they could only be sure that this great sacrifice was not made in vain. But today, with war again stalking toward the center of life's stage, the tomb of the Unknown Soldier seems to re- verberate with the whispered ques- tions of the spirit that hovers there, "For what purpose? To what end ?" The Elasfic Clause When Nell Perkins saw Hull Parsons coming down the road, she looked a little annoyed and and began to water her bed of petunias. "William Henryj' she called to the busy but lazy youth chopping wood for the box by the side of the back door. "You've worked hard enough fer the time bein.' Sit down and rest." "Guess that's the first time you ever thought I needed a rest. But I'l1 keep right on choppin' till you git through acceptin' or refusln' old Hull," he replied. At this, Nell Perkins looked up once more, Hull Parsons was just coming through the gate. "Mornin,' Widdy," he remarked, absently. "Nice mornin,' ain't it? How's the petunias growing? Don't seem to be - - -" "Now see here, Hull Parsons. I've never planted a petunia. that wouldn't grow for me." "Oh, now, Nell!" I just WELS goin' to ask if they be a puttin' on buds yet," he put in aP0108'0UC' ally, "But, Nell, those flowers will be a hollerin' fer help if you don't quit soakin' 'em. You'll have all them seeds washed out." "Never you mind," she answer- ed. "I know what I'm doin'." At this she anchored the hose, and preceded Hull to the back door of the little frame house. The chickens flew in all directions as the two approached their scratching grounds. The washing was only partially done, but Hull Parson's frequent visits never hindered her work, and he had by this time become used to her rude- ness. She settled herself to work, rubing and soaking a pair of Wil- liam I-Ienry's dirty over-alls. Hull Parsons pulled. the stool out from under the 'kitchen table and perched himself on it right in her way, as usual. She always went out of her way to get around him, however. "Been buyin' a new milk cow," resumed the caller, impressively. "Have, eh?" returned the wid- ow, with a good hard rubbing on the soiled seat of the blue jeans. "An' two hogs," went on Hull, wishing Nell would just glance up and see how affectionate he looked. It would have done him credit just then. "They'l1 be enough pork fer. all winter and the followin' spring." "Will, eh?" responded Widow Perkins., She became flustered at losing the soap, having gone el- bow deep seagching for it with- out success, she finally resorted to a new bar. "An' the fact is, Widdy, you see -that is, you know-oh, shucks, If you'll just agree-" Hull Par- sons left his words dangling in mid-air. "No, Hull Parsons, I don't see nothin, nor I don't know a par- ticle, and I ain't agreein' the least bit," snapped the widow. "But Widdy. don't get riled so soon,' 'again ventured Parsons. "I was just goin' to tell you I was proposin' to Carpenter Jones to build a new how - - -" "Is that all the proposin' you been a doin' fer the last thirty- seven years, Hull Parsons ?" she demanded stormily. "You ain't asked every old maid fer miles around to marry you, now have you? An' you didn't tell the last one you proposed to that if she didn't marry you it was the last straw--that old pepper-box of a Widow Cluster? You didn't say that now, did you, Hull Parsons? I do declare!" Hull Parsons turned all shades of red. Now he was in a trap, and there was no way out of it as far as he could see. "Aw now, that's a woman's way 0' lookin' at it. They all been jealous o' you all 'long, and all 'long they knew where my mind was set. I wouldn't married one of them women fer nothin'," he added triumphantly to Nell Perkins. "Huh!" yelled the Widow, losing a trifle of her warlife cast of countenance. "Just supposin' all Page Thirty seven THE ELASTI C CLA U SE-Continued those women hadn't turned you down, Hull Parsons ?" "They didn't refuse me," return- ed Parsons, looking somewhat proud. "I was the one that did the refusin.' They all proposed, I guess, 'cause it was leap year, or they was tryin' some o' their new women's ways, or somethin' like that. Now don't you see, Widdy?" "Well, mebbe I do and mebbe I don't. Just what is it that I'm supposed to see, Hull?" "Nell, you can be the dumbest at times! Why, it's you I been wantin' to propose to all this time, and you ain't never let me' Would you---er---marry me, Nell?" 'I-Iull, your record is still perfect. I't refusin' you, either." Stepping to the door she called "William Henry, now you can rest." The Shadow A certain firm has as its ad- vertising slogan: "See your dent- ist twice a year." What havoc this innocent suggestion creates in the minds of ordinarily calm and well-behaved. American citi- zens! The very mention of the word "dentist" causes even the bravest man to go skulking about, visibly quaking in his shoes. How- ever, it is impossible to dodge the issue. In addition to the original warning there are other slogans threatening social ostracism and other dire misfortune. So, sooner or later, even the most timid re- luctantly opens the waiting-room door, fervently praying to see a sign bearing the stoul-stirring words, "Out To Lunch." The prayer goes unanswered. A heart-rending groan issues from behind the formidable white doors leading to the inner sanctum of the torturer. Weakly the victim- to-be turns the pages of age-old magazines containing feeble jokes about dentists and their patients as he awaits the inevitable. . Just as the inward desire ,to escape has overcome discretion and the door leading to safety is Page fhirty-eight within a few steps, the preceding patient staggers out, pale and shaken from his ordeal. It is too late now, and with lagging steps the victim goes into the inner- room where the dentist stands rub- bing his hands in a gruesome car- icature of pleasure. Almost in a. state of nervous collapse the sufferer allows him- self to be strapped into the torture chair and sits frozen with horror while the dentist fusses with a tray of vicious instruments. The moment has come. In a sepulchral tone the dentist orders him to open his mouth. A series of probings begins, while the patient tense- ly clutches the arms of the chair, wishing that his last will and test- ament were made. At last the dentist steps back, the predatory gleam gone from his eye. "Your teeth are in perfect con- dition, Mr. Jones. See me next year." The sun never shone so bright- ly. The dentist is bewildered by a "pump-handle" shake of the hand, and Mrs. Representative American goes whistling down the stairs. The shadow has been lifts ed for another year. Hero of a Crisis Marjorie Jo Wheeler As the history of these United States passes in review, one figure towers head and shoulders above the rest. The weight of many sorrows has given a slight droop to the broad shoulders, and the ill- fitting coat only serves to accentu- ate the damage done by a terrific burden. The distinctive features would appear to be chiseled if it were not for humorous lines about the eyes and mouth which soften the expression. Those sad, brown eyes have witnessed conflict and hardships among the people he holds most dear. The heroic smile which curves his lips is one of un- derstanding, an understanding which causes his sympathies to lie with the rebellious, not against them. His hair is awry, as though he has been standing in a breeze, believing that the breath of heaven would confide in him and give him strength and assur- ance. In his presence the troubles of the individual become trivial as compared with the frightful suf- fering of the nation. Strength and goodness gave this man the endurance which such a crisis demanded of him. Love, honor, and esteem will in- crease with the ages, and time will not erase the memory of this be- loved countryman's service. We heed the silent command of his- tory and with deepest admiration pay tribute to Abraham Lincoln.

Y Page Thirty-nine On fhe Threshold of a Shrine It was a cool evening filled with the sweet, fresh smell that always follows a rain. We were laugh- ing and chattering gayly as we climbed the marble steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Then suddenly our talking ceased. Seated there before us, grandly, majesticallyg was the figure of Abraham Lin- coln. Soft lights played about him, bringing out the kindness, the ineffable sadness in the face. His shoulders drooped slightly, for up- on them the fate of a nation had rested. Here was the man whose destiny it had been to shape the destiny of a nation. Here was the man who had conquered those forces which would rend the na- tion asunder. Why had he to die before his work was finished? As our minds filled with thoughts of the life of this man and the work he had done, we lost all sense of time. Suddenly we were brought out of our dreams by the call of a bugle, our signal, time for us to go. And as we marched off into the dark, rainy night, our thoughts turned back to that figure seated there. Per- haps he, too, had heard a call be- fore he felt it was time to go. Perhaps in his death, as in his life, was the hand of the divine. This we can never know. But we do know that when this nation most sorely needed a mas- ter-hand to guide it, this man rose up to assume that supreme leader- ship. He lived to save a nation and died to live enshrined forever in our hearts, the greatest Amer- ican. My Heirloom At first glance, this heirloom looks like any other legal docu- ment except for its very apparent age. The paper is brown and folded in many places, the edges ragged and torn. At the top is the seal of the United States govern- ment, the golden eagle, wings spread, and bearing the shield dec- orated with the symbolic thirteen stars and stripes. This document is my great-grandfather's honora- ble discharge from the first regi- ment of the Virginia Cavalry of the Union Army. ' Although the writing has be- Page Forty come faded, almost indistinct, enough of the words can be read to get the full meaning. He en- listed in the army in 1861, at the age of thirty, and scarcely a year had passed when he was wounded by a rebel shell and sent home. At this time he received the hon- orable discharge which I now pos- sess. He died two months later, leaving my grandfather, who was two years of age. As I look upon this document, my heirloom, I feel the deepest respect for all those, who, as he did, gave up their lives so that this great nation of ours might live on, undivided. Artificial Jewelry Almost every variety store has a. section given over to cheap, ar- tificial jewelry. Bright, glittering rings, bracelets, brooches, and necklaces can be bought there for a very nominal sum. Likewise al- most every municipality has a cheap. artificial element among its inhabitants. People that make up such an element are, for some reason or another, peculiarly com- parable to this artificial jewelry. Like the jewelry, they glitter and shine and shine with handsome features and splendid clothingg thus they make a very pleasing impression. But this pleasant ex- terior only serves to conceal a selfish narrowness of mind, and consequently it belies the real character underneath. It is well to beware of that which has a too-pleasing exterior. Too often it is only a camouflage for a cheap interior, just as cheap materials are concealed by the ex- pensive-looking exterior of artific- ial jewelry. Deception often lies beneath such an exterior. Truth in all its phases is seldom thus' obscured by glamour, but rather distinguished by its simplicity. -Lucille Montoya. " The Tourisf Virginia Sisk Tourists come out of hiberna- tion at the first sign of spring and are at large until late auk tumn. Their habitat is almost any place. The genus Americana usu- ally travels by automobile, the type of which may range from an old battered vehicle to the latest limousine. With the blossoming of the trailer industry, rubber- tired cottages have become a fre- quent sight along the highways, and tourists camps dot the coun- tryside. The tourist is representa- tive of the middle and better class- es, interested in gaining a first- hand knowledge of the scenic at- tractions of the country, and he is, as a rule, a sensible driver and well-mannered guest. Tourists may be easily recognized by their investigative air and characteris- tic attire, including flat walking shoes, dark glasses ,a suit or dress with large pockets full of note- books, pencils, and road maps which are considered an absolute necessity in the travel world. Judged by the usual standards of style, the average tourist lays no claim to sartorial elegance, but to the man at the gasoline pump and the keeper of the hotel and curio shop he is a "thing of beauty and a joy forever." Page Forty one On Discovering Oneself By Betty Dickinson People today live at a fast tempo. Everyone thinks there should be something to do all the time. Working hard and playing hard, he seems afraid to be alone. To discover oneself one should have some time alone each day to think over personal problems and difficulties, to analyze his thoughts, to think about what he desires from life, to discover what his special interests and talents are, and how they can best be de- veloped. An outline of good points and bad points should be studied. and an improvement made on the bad ones and emphasis placed on the good ones. Reading is one way to discover an improve oneself. Too many people read just for pleasure, scanning what they read, using reading as an anaesthetic instead of stopping to assimilate what has been read and getting good from it. Comuning with nature is an- other good means of discovering oneselfgtaking long walks and trying to acquire appreciation for the beauties of nature. One should get away from crowds, be alone in the great outdoors and think of one's relation to nature- seek- ing peace and relaxation and dis- covering new hidden depths in oneself. Discovering oneself is a. fascinating game, which becomes more enjoyable the more it is played. Whaf is Behind Our Flag? Our flag stands for more that is good than does any other na- tional symbol. The flag as a whole is symbolic of the work of all those noble men who, since our country's beginning, in peace and in war, have struggled faithfully and even given their lives to pro- tect the nation. The red in our flag represents the courage, the zeal, and the fervency of those men. Their courage has been proved many times :their warmth of feeling toward the flag and na- Page Forty-two tion have always been apparent. The white symbolizes the purity and rectitude of conduct the flag should inspire in every true Amer- ican. Each citizen of the United States should live up to that glo- rious banner by cultivating these traits in himself. The blue is symbolic of loyalty, devotion, friendship, justice, and truth. Loy- alty and devotion have made our flag and nation what they are: friendship, justice, and truth are responsible for keeping them as they are.

They have realized their greatest ambi- tion-to rank in the highest ten per cent of their class. They have taken advantage of a splen- did education opportunity because they early realized the value of thorough preparation for any field, regardless of its classification. They have enjoyed gleaming knowledge from books as well as life. They have developed the spirit of being satisfied with noth- ing but their bestg they have risen above the throng, above medio- crity. "They have hitched their wagons to a star" and have mounted slowly but surely to the heavens by untiring effort and noble sacrifices. At last they view with satisfaction the results of their labors. But their lives have not been Page Forty-six dullg they have led their class in other activities: debate, tennis, track, and social activities. Our honor roll is the largest in the history of the school, and we are very proud of this group: 1. Margaret Mae Floyd 2. Vella Jean Dowling 3. Mary Lee Benedict 4. Virginia Sisk 5. Jean Stough 6.

Each year since it was in- augurated, in the fall of 1935, the council has gained more prestige and efficiency. Many important school matters have been submit- ted for its approval. School spirit has greatly improved since the Student Council has been in exist- ence. Students are more eager than ever to cooperate with the school officials since they realize they really have a voice in the school affairs. The following are outstanding among the many accomplishments of the Student Council. Con- tracts were entered into with the Midwest Co. and the Los Angeles Amusement Co. for highly enter- taining and educational assembly programs, and with the Balfour Co. for the official school jewelry. The' Council apportioned the mat- riculation fee and approved let- ters due to students for partici- pation in various school activities. The council also sponsored the i Senior-Faculty basketball game and adopted the official loving cup, which will be awarded annu- ally to the winner of this event. A great deal of credit is due the Boosters Committee of the Student Council for the fine work they have done this year. This committee was responsible for much of the enthusiastic attend- ance and support at the football and basketball games. The mem- bers worked industriously in paint- painting signs on downtown win- dows, arranging for pep assem- blies, providing for transporta- tion to out-of-town games, and arousing public enthusiasm. With this fine record before it a goal, the future Student Council will no doubt continue to grow in popularity and importance. It is an organization of which the school may well be proud. Its fu- ture activities will be wat:-hed with interest by the community as a whole ,as well as by the school organization. We predict that it will fulfill all expectations. Page Forty seven The Science Club The Science Club of the school year 1937-38 was organized un- der the guidance of Harold Sohns, instructor of Chemistry and Phys- ics at Trinidad High School. The club was introduced into the school during the first part of the second semester, and since then it has been very active. This club, which had its origin in the Physics class, was intended to include the Chem- istry classes, but since the time was too short to organize such a large group, the club was confined merely to the Physics class. During the weekly meetings of the club various programs were carried on and each proved to be successful from the points of in- terest and of accomplishment. These programs included the re- pairing of damaged experimental equipment, the construction of electrical motors, of which several proved to be very successful, and several other interesting projects. Several interesting discussions were also conducted during the meetings. A program was given on Fri- day, May 6, before the entire stu- dent body. Mr. Sohns planned the Page Forty-eight program, and the members car- ried out his plans. This program consisted of several demonstra- tions on electricity and the mag- netic effects of electricity. The purpose of this program was to encourage future students to be- come more interested in the sci- ences, especially in Physics. The officers elected for the year were as follows: Don Berg, pres- identg Carson Shroads, vice-presi- dent, Grant Barron, secretary, and Virginia Sisk, treasurer. A com- mittee of three with Bill Schne- berg as chairman drew up the list of rules and regulations for new members. A committee was also appointed to arrange for the year- ly picnic. The club members are as fol- lows: Margaret Mae Floyd, Lily May Larsen, Virginia Sisk, Bill Schneberg, Harold Crawford, George Spahr, Henry Trollinger, Clay East, Bob Selders, Walter McIntosh, Thomas Ogden, Ernest Moya, Wilber Grisham, Lloyd Win- ger, Carson Shroads, Cecil Schral der, Don Berg, Charles Harvey, Paul Fine, Max Lopez, Grant Bar- ron, and Ernest Saliba. Senior Play A comedy farce, "Honor Bright" by Mereditch Nicholson and Ken- yon Nicholson, was played before a large and appreciative audience May 13 at the High School Audi- torium. Miss Brace, instructor of dra- matics, has been the director of many successful Senior plays in the past and is to be complimented on the fine performance this year. Each member of the cast de- serves much credit for the under- standing and skill with which he handled his assigned role. Mrs. Lucy Barrington, a New England woman of culture and breeding, was effectively played by Mildred Roche. Dean Mabry was Well cast as Richard Barrington, her son, a handsome, likable youth, scion of the wealthy Barrington family. Paul Fine was splendid as the Rt. Rev. William Carton, a kindly, middle-aged gentleman, whose love of quotations is his one weakness. Margaret Mae Floyd was convinc- ing as Peggy Carton, his wife, a. woman of great determination and frankness, who attempts to rule the Barrington household with an iron hand. Honor Bright, an at- tractive young book agent, who, in her search for customers, becomes involved in the difficulties of the Barrington family, was played by Doris Farber. The Rev. James Schooley, a timid, well-meaning minister from North Platte, Ne- braska, was cleverly portrayed by Harold Crawford. Carson Shroads was excellent as Bill Drum, press agent for the "Snap It Up" Com- pany, while Edna Jane Barker en- acted the role of Tot Marvel, a. chorus girl and Richard's fiancee. Watts, the Barrington's disapprov- ing butler, was capably character- ized by Charles Harvey, and Vir- ginia Sisk played the part of Mag- gie, the Irish cook. Janet Morse was good as Annie, the sloW-Wit- ted maid, and Arthur Clements ably portrayed the role of Foster, the Scotch gardener. Cecil Schra- der was fine as Michael the chauffeur. Simpson and Jones, deputy sheriffs, were well played by Bud Reed and Ben Kendall. Page Forty nine High School Band The Trinidad High School Band under the able direction of Mr. George Zavislan has surprised the local citizens and the student body with a display of fine ability. During the football season, for both High School and Junior Col- lege, the Band turned out excel- lent marching and playing per- formances. Two very fine con- certs were given during the year which displayed the ability of the Band. On April 18 and 19 the Band attended the State Music Festival in Colorado Springs, and gained considerable recognition there by receiving a superior rat- ing in Concert and Marching and by winning in their division.

The Orchestra was requested by the Junior and Senior classes to as- sist in the presentation of their plays, which they very ably did, They also contributed their tal- ents to the various service clubs and women's organizations of the city. The Orchestra received much praise at their several appear- ances on the program during the Teachers' Convention which was held here. The Orchestra has ren- dered very fine service to the school and community by its ever- welcome appearances and should be complimented by the student body, the teachers, and the town's people.

Thorough research in data, facts, and statistics is necessary, and before actual debate can be con- sidered, both sides of the question must be studied. The subject chosen to debate on this year was, "Should a Unicam- eral System of State Legislation Be Adopted?" Being a question of local interest, it was appro- priate, and it was coached very ef- ficiently by Mr. F. H. Sherrill. The debate season began late in the first semester and continued until the latter part of March. Meetings at first consisted of in- structions and of outlining mate- rial. Later they featured practice debates between the members. The few outside trips made by the debate members were enjoy- able and a source of valuable expe- rience for most of them. The first was a trip to Pueblo for an Invi- tational Meet. This trip was made possible through the efforts Page Fifty-two -, , and Mr. Sherrill. Those who partici- pated in this Meet were Arthur Clements and Charles Blackwood. They upheld the negative against a team from Walsenburg. Marga- ret Mae Floyd and Meredith Har- lan were pitted against a Pueblo team. The second trip, made pos- sible by Mr. Sherrill, was to Wal- senburg for a non-decision debate. Those who contested in this debate were Lucille Montoya and Helyn Konugres, debating the affirma- tive, and Arthur Clements and Charles Blackwood, upholding the negative. In all the debates the members debated to the best of their abil- ity, and it can be said that they represented the school very favor- ably. The debate members of this year are Helyn Konugres, Mar- garet Mae Floyd, Lucille Montoya, Charles Blackwood, Meredith Har- lan, Harriet Wheeler, Arthur Clements, James Dighera, Morton Fine, and Paul Fine. l , Girl Reserves M -pwkl The organization of Girl Re- serves of Trinidad High School has just completed its fourth year of work under the Sponsor- ship of Mrs. Bernece Chmelka. Marked progress has been made during the year. Regular meetings have been held each Tuesday afternoon, dur- ing which educational and enter- taining programs have been pre- sented. One night meeting was held at the Christian Church, to which the Mothers of the Girl Re- serves were invited. A Mother Advisor Group was organized at this time. Various social functions have been enjoyed. The Va1entine's Day Dance, which was held at 610 Pine St., was a most enjoyable affair. A merit system was introduced this year by which the members are judged on various points of personality and ideals. It is hop- ed that the girl who is adjudged the most Worthy at the conclusion of the year will receive a trip to the Girl Reserves summer camp. Undoubtedly the outstanding feature of the year was the con- vention Which was held in Trini- dad at the Presbyterian Church on May 14. Girls from nine schools were invited. Some very interest- ing speakers brought inspiration and valuable instruction. A very lovely banquet was held at noon. Much appreciation and honor is due the sponsor, Mrs. Chmelka, for her untiring efforts in her work with the club during the past year. The officers for the year were: Maxine Snyder, Presidentg Helyn Konugres, Vice President, Dorothy Spurr, Secretary, Mary Lee Ben- edict, Treasurer. Other members Were: Mary Jane Ready, Vella Jean Dowling, Charlotte and Medora Rylburn, Isla Ruth Newkirk, Katherine No- lan, Charlottefiaap, Betty Mon- roe, Barbara and Thelma Spencer, Jean Stough, Neville and Gladys Wallace, Theresa Enrietta, Marjo- rie Guthrie, Alliebelle Gilpin, Vir- ginia Miller, Margaret Brundage, Laura Courtney, Elizabeth Daveyy Lucille Montoya, Rose Paulovich, Laurice Saliba, Elaine Trunnell. Page Fifty-three 45 Lt K 'Mk . ff' fj Junior Promenade Supreme delight! The new prom dress was a real sensation! Indeed, there was very little studying done at school Friday, May 20, 1938. So far as the Juniors and Seniors were concerned, the prom- enade had already begun. Every- one sat looking into space, the girls, no doubt, dreaming of their prom dresses and hoping the new sandals wou1dn't pinch. There was some speculation among the oppo- site sex as to the gowns their partners would wear. Three-thirty found the young ladies at their favorite beauty sa- lons, having their hair dressed in beautiful and elaborate curls and ringlets. At nine p. m. the throng had gathered within the gymnasium which, under the direction of Miss Howell, had been tastefully dec- orated with an Indian motif. From an appropriately decorated pit came the enchanting strains of Ken Wo1fe's capable orchestra, setting in motion the colorful Grand March, which was led by Page Fifty-four r. and Mrs. Ross, Mr. and Mrs. ertz, followed by the Senior and ior class presidents, their part- s, and classmates. Members of school board and faculty chap- e ed the affair. most gay interpretation of ashion was displayed - frosted organdies, flowered chiffons, lace embroidered nets, marquisettes - in a bright medley of colors unus- ually flattering, with a touch of individuality so becoming. The sleekly tailored white coats with dark trousers, worn by the young men, lent a strikingly fashionable contrast. As all things must end, this evening of gaiety was brought to a close at twelve o'clock. The Juniors left in high spirits, look- ing forward to more fun next year. But the Seniors looked regretfully over their shoulders as they slow- ly departed, with only pleasant memories of a delightful evening. The Junior Promenade was one of the outstanding events of the year. Junior Class Play "One Mad Night," a very clever three act comedy, by James Reach was presented by the Jun- ior Class in the High School Au- ditorium December 3, 1937. This was the first of a series of Junior plays to be presented annually and was well attended. One of the objectives of these plays is to give students a more adequate activity program, and more dramatic ex- perience. The production was very capably directed by Miss Letitia Brace. The plot was about Don Cutter, a young playwright, played by James Mason, who sought seclu- sion in the family mansion so that he might pursue his profession to a more successful end. He was ably attended by Wing, his Chi- nese valet, who was well played by Temple Rowe. During the course of the first evening, sever- al very unpleasant sounds were heard, and these were later dis- closed to be made by patients of Dr. Bunn, played by Charles Greenwade, who illegally conduct- ed a psycopathic hospital in the Cutter mansion. He was assisted by Mrs. Kluck, the housekeeper, played by Rose Bates. A trying time was complicated by several patients. Pricilla, who knitted, Twila Joy Murray, Lady Mac- beth, a victim of Shakespeare, Maxine Cook, John Alden, who hunted Indians, Ralph Compton, Mr. Hyde, a ferocious villian, by Dick Phelps. To add to the difficulties, Gertrude Finch, Don's fiancee, played by Flora East, and her mother, the Mrs. Ashington Finch, played by Idell Smith, ac- companied by their pessimistic colored-maid Depression, played by Jeanne Bennett, arrived and added serious complications, for Lucille Marcy, a damsel in dis- tress, played by Arlene Phillips, had appealed to Don's sense of honor. Dr. Bunn and Artemus Burke, a lawyer, played by Charles Niccoli, plotted to keep Lucille in seclusion in the mansion in order to obtain her vast for- tune. Danny Stiletto, wanted for murder, was played splendidly by Frank Scariano, and was secretly employed as a detective by Don. In the end, Gertrude and her mother fled for home, and Lucille and Don decided the mansion could make a. lovely home. Page Fifty five li-Y The Hi-Y has made considera- ble progress this year under the able leadership of Mr. VVhitney and the club officers. The big event of the year was the State Older Boy's Conferences held in Colorado Springs, opening Novem- ber 26 and lasting three days. Eight members of the Trinidad club, accompanied by Mr. Whit- ney, attended this conference. Those attending the conference were divided into various discus- sion groups which proved stimu- lating and interesting. The out- standing social event of the year was the Parents and Sons Ban- quet held at the Country Club the evening of March 8. Mrs. J. E. Chenoweth extended greetings from the mothers, Mr. Roy Hart from the fathers, Mr. W. F. Couey from the School Board, and Prin- cipal R. B. Mertz from the school. Guest speaker 'of the evening was Mr. H. L. Hoisington, member of the National Council of the Y. M. C. A. A joint meeting was held Page Fifty-six i R with Primero Hi-Y. In the bas- ketball game played after the meeting, the Trinidad Hi-Y boys defeated the Primero boys. Officers of the Hi-Y Club are: President --.......

Because of the large number in the Senior class, the girls were di- vided into two groups, with about forty-five girls in each group. Trinidad High Seniors were spon- sored by Miss Clara Bunnellg the Holy Trinity girls, by Mrs. Mur- phy Barrack, president of the Holy Trinity P. T. A. The luncheon room was attrac- tively decorated with spring flow- ers in pastel shades. Covers were laid for ninety-nine girls, eighty- eight of Trinidad High School and eleven of Trinity High School. Immediately following the luncheon the girls adjourned to the West Theatre, where they thoroughly enjoyed a double fea- ture picture. The pictures were 'Tom Sawyer" and "Blondes at Work." The Senior girls are truly grate- ful to the ladies, who through their splendid efforts made the luncheon a great success. The committee in charge of the affair was composed of the following la- dies: Mrs. R. Mayfield, president of the City Federation, Mrs. R. B. Mertz. Mrs. I. F. Beauchamp, Miss Nell Roberts, Mrs. C. D. Hamilton, Mrs. John Fisher, Mrs. Mark Berk- heimer, Mrs. E. C. Parr, Mrs. E. D. Wight, Mrs. L. Z. Jamieson, Mrs. D. M. Blair, Mrs. J. J. Hen- drick, and Mrs. W. F. Burrough. The Senior girls have been look- ing forward to this annual event for the past several years with great enthusiasm ,and now they will look back upon it as one of the most pleasant memories of their high school days.

Although the "37" football team did not win the conference, it accomplished a. feat which some of the former football teams have failed to ac- complish. It was the first team to beat the famed Salida Spartans in the South Central league. The "37" football team took their pre- season games by decisive scores, defeating Rocky Ford 31 to 0 and Manua.l, Denver, 14 to 0. The Miners opened the conference sea- son bv conquering the famed Sa.- lida Spartans 14 to 0. Then the Miners went on to defeat their next three conference foes by de- cisive scores. The scores were: Trinidad 31, Walsenburg 03 Trini- dad 26, Centennial 6, Trinidad 31, Canon City 6. After winning their first six games, the Miners lost their first game to Colorado Springs, runner-up state cham- Page Sixty I pions. After being outscored in the first half, the blue-shirted Min- ers came back in the second half and made it miserable for the Ter- rors, but they finally lost by a score of 19 to 13. In the Central vs. Trinidad game the battle waged from side to side, but Central finally won by a scant score of 7 to 0. The "37" football team piled up 173 points against their opponents' 38. Eight sen- iors were in the Miners' starting line up. The members of the "37" football team were: Lordnich, Za- noni, Davidson, Guadagnoli, Mac- aluso, Browning, Ferris, Spahr, Schneberg, Lucero, Barron, Saliba, Taylor, Maio, Oleskevich, Zanon, Chenoweth, Berg, Griggs, Scott, Germer, Grosso, Risley, Fine, Ken- dall, Frlan, and Snyder. The seniors who were members of the "37" football team were: Lordnich, Davidson, Macaluso, Ferris, Spahr, Schneberg, Lucero, Barron, Saliba, Taylor, Maio, Oles- kevich, Chenoweth, Berg, Grosso, Fine, Kendall, and Frlan. Baskefball The Trinidad Miners under the supervision of Coach Raleigh Holt, assisted by Jack Walton, Os- car Palmquist, and Donald Davis, finished third in the South Central League this year. The Miners started the season by winning five non-conference games out of six. In the first conference game, the Miners won over Central 30-25, but on the fol- lowing night, they lost to Centen- nial in an exciting game, with the score 21-19. The next week the Miners walloped Salida, but they lost to Colorado Springs in anoth- er thrilling game, which ended with the score of 20-22. Next they defeated Walsenburg and Canon City Without much difficulty. The following week the Minermen mo- tored to Salida to smother the Spartans 29-14. The next night, however, they lost another thriller: 20-21 to Canon City. In the clos- ing games, the Miners beat Wal- senburg and Central, but were de- feated in the two against Central and Colorado Springs. The members of the varsity squad for the season of 1938 show- ed surprising ability. Captain Er- nest Saliba was one of the best guards in the conference. In the tilts with Canon City and Centen- nial, .he held Ireland and Wolf, leading scorers in the conference, to one basket each. Ernest was also a member of the All-Confer- ence Basketball Team. . Davidson, forward, was seldom surpassed in his offensive ,work. Leo Oleskevich, guard, was a good all-round player. Lloyd Nor- man. center, could really play the pivot post. Carl Risley, forward, seldom missed a set shot, and was an all-around scorer. Rudy Lord- nich, forward, who was ill during the early part of the season, did not see as much action as was ex- pected, but he really played while he was in the game. Among the other members were George Spahr, forward, James Macaluso, for- ward gCharles Maio, centerg Steve Grosso, forward, Bill Schneberg, guard, and Grant Barron, guard. Page Sixty one Track The 1938 track season was ush- ered in for the Trinidad High School by a triangular track and field meet held Tuesday, April 19, at the local stadium. Primero and Sopris were the other two compet- itors in the meet. Although a close battle for points was antic- ipated, the Miners were able to win over the Bulldogs and the Panthers with a considerable mar- gin. The final score was Trinidad. 10955 Primero 74, and Sopris, 9. The Miner track team, under the able supervision of coach Pete Armentrout, received its next competitive test in the largest high school invitational meet ever held in the State of Colorado. The meet was held April 23 at the Miner stadium under the auspices of the Trinidad State Junior Col- lege. Dean George W. Scott of the Page Sixty-two Junior College devoted much time to arranging the meet The event of the meet marked the fourth An- nual Invitational Meet held in this part of the state. With the aid of the Weatherman. the contest was carried on in a very quick and creditable manner and was one of the finest high school track meets ever held in the state. Aproximately 329 athletes, rep- resenting 21 schools participated in the contests. The Terrors of Colorado Springs scored a total of 615 points to Win the meet title for the second successive year. The Miners were fifth with 215 points. Coach Armentrout's track squad also competed for honors in the South-Central Conference meet which was held at Colorado Springs, April 30, and finished in fourth place. Tennis Trinidad has always been able to make a good showing in ten- nis. In 1935 Trinidad entered the South Central Conference, the team being coached this and the following year by Fred Couey. Members of the class of '38 on this team were George Spahr and Bill Stonebraker. Trinidad did not fare so well during the 1937 season, though Starks won all of his single matches during the season, and reached the semi-finals in the State meet at Boulder, May 15. The class of '38 was represented on this team by Bill Stonebraker, James Woods, and George Spahr. The 1938 annual tennis season got underway at Trinidad High with the Miner net men journey- ing to Pueblo Central, April 9th, Neither team proved to be up to its best form, but Central had the sufficient power to defeat Trini- dad with the loss of only one match. Stonebraker of Trinidad, winning from McDonald of Cen- tral, in the singles. A match with the Colorado Springs Terrors, who were to play the Miners March LL 19th at Colorado Springs, was called off because of a spring snow. April 14th, during Spring Va- cation, the Miners were hosts to the Central team in a return match at Trinidad. The Miners showed a good deal of improve- ment, but lost at five matches to two, Woods defeating McDonald in the singles, and Stonebraker and Woods defeating McDonald and Pobst in the doubles. How- ever, all the matches were closely contested, the Miners losing by close margins. The Miners are eagerly look- ing forward to the State Tennis Tournament to be held at Boul-' der during the latter part of May. Trinidad is entering a team and hopes that it may make a good showing. The 1938 Miner net squad con- sists of Hugh Fisher, Dick Bard- rick, James Woods, Bill Stone- braker, George Spahr, and Bob Mertz. The team has been very ably coached and directed during the 1937-1938 seasons by F. Hoyt Sherrill. Page Sixty three D . Golf After an absence of several years golf has once more been in- stituted into Trinidad High School as a minor sport, largely through the effort of Coach J. C. Alexan- der and the team members. Sev- eral years ago golf, under the guidance of Oscar Gamel, was on the pinnacle of being a success in Trinidad High, but upon his retire- ment from the coaching staff in- terest in golf gradually declined until it reached the point where it wasn't even considered as a school activity. However, there were still a few students who de- sired to organize 'a golf team, and, upon the appointment of Mr. Al- exander to the High School fac- ulty, they took immediate steps with him to organize a team. All students who desired to play were collected by Mr. Alexander, and, after a few practice sessions at the Pineview Golf Coure, a fairly good golf squad was formed. The first match of the team was held at Raton against Raton High on April 30. This match was lost' Page Sixty-four by a score of three to one, Jess Burrows being the lone winner of the Miner's squad. A return match was planned for Saturday, May 7, and with the return of several players who did not com- pete in the first match, the squad had hopes of doing better, how- ever, this match was postponed- because of snow. A tournament was planned for May 14, to be held in Denver between four or five schools, Trinidad being one of them. The members of the team, ac- cording to rank, are as follows: Lloyd Norman, No. 1 man, Ken- neth fBulldogJ Wright, No. 25 Carl LWhizzerJ Risley, No. 35 Jess Burrows, No. 45 Frank Tavellag Richard Phelps, Thomas fRuben- offl Warburtong Melvin Germerg and the one and only, Louis Tom- azin, alias Bobby Jones, who in- cidentally, is the only graduating senior on the squad. The team will be somewhat the same for next season, except for a few ad- ditional players, and a fairly suc- cessful season should be enjoyed. Home Room Afhlefic Acfivifies Intra-mural athletics was intro- duced this year into the high school athletic program. The pur- pose of intra-mural athletics is to give those boys a chance to partic- ipate in such contests, who do not belong to the first squads in the various sports. The entire program has proved a great success, and it is very pop- ular with the students. With the Home Room as a unit for the teams, a great deal of spirit has been built up. Many of the bas- ketball and wrestling contests were witnessed by well over a hundred students during the morn- ings. As a result of these activ- ities there has been a decided in- crease in interest in the athletic program of the high school. As a result of a study of actual figures, we find that well over eighty per cent of the boys enrolled in school have taken part in these contests. The basketball tournament was the first tournament held under the Home Room program. It proved to be very popular. All of the twenty-four Home Rooms en- tered teams, and many of them entered more than one team. In fact, a total of forty-one teams entered in the tourney. This rep- resented a total of 369 boys who actually took part in the games. No members of the regular bas- ketball squad were permitted to take part. The games were very interest- ing, and many close ones were player. The championship game between Mr. Sohn's room and Mr. Curry's room was an excellent one. It was played surprisingly well considering the fact that none of the boys were on the high school squad. The game was very close throughout, with the final score ending 29 to 25 in favor of Mr. Sohn's room. A pennant was giv- en to this room as a reward for winning the championship. Immediately following the bas- ketball tourney the wrestling tour- nament was organized. Each of the Home Rooms again entered contestants. The total number of the entries was 212, and a total of 281 matches were held. As this was a new sport on the high school calendar, it proved to be very in- teresting and exciting to Watch. In fact, there was so much in- terest shown that Mr. Ross de- cided to have all the finals in the different classes held during the last period of school on Friday. The students were instructed in the rules and ideas of wrestling and every one of the matches was close and exciting. The wrestlers were divided into ten different weight classes as fol- lows: 70-80, 80-90, 90-100, 100- 110, 110-120, 120-130, 130-140, 140- 150, 150-160, 160-170. In the first five weight classes each match was for two minutes, while in-the remaining classes, the bouts lasted for three minutes. The tournament was conducted on a one-match loss elimination basis. Those losing in the first round went into the consolation tourney where they competed un- til they lost their second match. The results of the matches were as follows: Championship Bracket 70-80-Silva won by fall from Valdez in 3:45. 80-90- Leyba won by fall from Pedri in 1:33. 90-100fGallegos won by fall 100-110 from LaCrue in 1:53. -F. Simpleman won by fall from R. Gurle, 1:41. 110-120-Kemm won by fall from M. Martinez in 2:25. 120-130-J. Niccoli won by fall from Grosso in 1:31. 130-140-P. Griego won by fall from E. Lucero in 3:00. 140-150-C. Lucero win by decision - from Jackson in 3:00. 150-160-P. Bascich won by decis- ion from C. Lucero in 3:00 160-170-P. Bascich won by 'fall from W. Chenoweth in 31 seconds. Pete Bascich proved his superi- ority as a wrestler by going into two classes and winning both of them. In the Free Throw Tournament Kenneth Wright of Mr. Curry's home room won the championship with 273 baskets out of a possible 350. Following the Free Throw Tournament will be held a Tennis Tournament, a Golf Tournament, and a Softball Tournament. Page Sixty five he fi , , -. W o g 0 Ji Y" Girls Afhlehcfilssoc Xyion 5' up ix! With the second year of organ- ization drawing to a successful close ,the Girls' Athletic Associa- tion of Trinidad High School has taken a progressive step forward and now holds a prominent place in the field of athletics. The as- sociation under the capable super- vision of Mrs. E. S. Dunkel was organized in the improving health, developing sportsmanship, and stimulating interest in girls' ath- letics. Any girl who earns fifty points and who is enrolled in the Physical Education Department is eligible. - Various awards are won accord- ing to a point system.

One hundred and fifty points en- title a member to a G. A. A. Em- blem, while three hundred points cam a blue T on a white back- ground. Officers who gave their services during the year were: Bette Moore, president: Edna Barker, Page Sixty-six Vice-President, Sara Jane Bell, Secretary, Thelma Smith, Treas- urer, and Betty Douglas, Librar- ian. Volley-ball introduced the inter- period competition in which the "Captain's Crew" proved their winning ability. The team con- sisted of Isabelle Kerr, Edna Jane Barker, Daisy Sandoval, Barbara Spencer, Bette Moore, Betty Mul- len, Meredith Harlan, and Sara Jane Bell. Basketball was the second competitive sport, the "Captain's Crew" again taking hon- ors. Spring sports consisted of Soccer, Tennis, and Baseball. Trophies were presented to the "Captain's Crew," winning team of both the Volley-Ball and Bas- ketball tournament, at the G. A. A. Play day held at the Trinidad High School on Saturday, April 30, 1938. Representatives sent to the Pueblo Play day were Francis Fatur. Pauline Thomazin, and Dorothy Leggett, while those at- tending the Play Day at Boulder were Marjorie Guthrie, Helyn Kon- ugres, Charlotte Jaap, and Shirley Ellis.
