A delegation of ten members was sent to the South-Central League Student Council conven- tion in Pueblo in the fall.

Directed by Mr. Earl Powell, the Trinidad High School Band again this year participated in pep assemblies, maneuvered on the football field and in the downtown district, led by clever drum majors and twirling majorettes, and performed in concert appearances for the public. Inaugurating a campaign to raise money for new band uniforms, the Band Parents' Associa- tion presented "Swallow," the magician, and sponsored the film, "Land of Liberty," at the West Theater. Clirnaxing a successful year, the band competed for honors with other high school bands at the annual music festival at Pueblo. ' LLOLCUS The Chorus, under the direction of Mrs. Mona G. Tyer, has had a full an-d most inter- esting calendar. Of great interest were the musical programs presented in assembly for teach- ers and students. Several concerts were presented during the school year which were largely attended by the general public. l The very colorful and interesting Christmas concert won high praise. Eor the past two T years the Trinidad and Raton School choruses have had exchange programs, and this year, as formerly, these events proved most interesting and successful. df., '-'Fi 1 x . ,,-. l ,M 1-5 'f'3'l?5ff2 ,F - ff- .. ,:, 'i"'Ei,ag , - 4' 1 rw, Qi. ,LI H T was-2' we-i,, - Q- l J W , Q 31:21 lg j V 1 W -R' ' , l l O1ckesT'ra The T. H. S. Orchestra has been steadily progressing for many years g this year with con- cert and other public appearances, the members have enjoyed a very busy and successful season. Early in the year a public concert was presented, and in December the orchestra joined the chorus in a Christmas concert. It supplied incidental music for the junior play, the career conference, and the senior play during the latter part of the year. A new activity in Trinidad High School this year is the Girls' Choir, sponsored by Mrs. Mona Tyer. The programs given throughout the year have shown that this newly organized band of singers is rapidly taking its place among the worth-while extra-curricular activities of the school. The choir appeared in the Christmas concert, the Raton program, and the Pueblo- Trinidad spring festival. G'i'fis'Cl1c,iin Hs-'Ll I , . Wg 4 7 9 M51 The year of 1940-41 was a successful one for the Hi-Y club of Trinidad. The outstanding event was the Older Boys' Conference held in Denver. Another delightful occasion was the Father-Mother-Son banquet in April, the success of which was largely due to the generous efforts of Mrs. Whitney. The induction services were outstanding. For the first time since the club was organized, a. part of this service was made public. Moving picture programs furnished entertainment throughout the year, one such program being offered the entire student body in general assembly. Q y' ' ' union Pktom Maytime in all its glory was beautifully portrayed in the high gchool gymnasium one lovely evening in May, 1941, by some very clever juniors under the direction of Miss Horn, class sponsor, and Jim Browning, Prom committee chairman. Huge May baskets filled to the brim with colorful spring flowers decorated the four cor- ners, making a very lovely scene. ' The Prom this year was an event that will long be remembered by both juniors and sen- iors. When the Future Homemakers' Club was organized in Colorado last year, Trinidad High was among those schools that organized units. This club is made up of those girls who are interested in the art of homemaking, and is under the leadership of Miss Ruth Davis. The purpose of the organization is to develop qualities for leadership among the members and to encourage interest in all phases of home improvement. ? H C Jurtic.-tt Pla For excellent entertainment the junior play was- most outstanding. The large cast of twenty-four members under the direction of Miss Brace cleverly depicted the life of typical high-school students and teachers in the play, "What A Life," a light comedy presented to students and the general public in the high school auditorium on November 29, 1940. l For several years the Trinidad High School chapter of Girl Reserves was an important or- ganization, and after temporary inactivity during last year, has been reorganized under the sponsorship of Mrs. Elsie Dunkel. During the spring months the girls have enjoyed an inter- esting social calendar.

The first team, composed of Walter Heap, John Abrums, Jack Duren, and Bob Tatum, partici- pated in forty-six inter-scholastic debates. On the question, "Resolved: That the Powers of the Federal Government Should Be In- creased," Trinidad representatives debated with seventeen schools. Teams were entered in six meets in different parts of the state. The high lights of the year included a district meet at Col- orado Springs and a three-day meet at Boulder. Trinidad reached the semi-finals on the former occasion and received a rating of excellent at the state meet. u an nnounccxs These boys, Jack Duren and Bob Tatum, were announcers at all athletic events this ,ff year. fit, ff- i 1 Q, ' AM X , ..

Led by nine senior lettermen, the Miners won eight games, lost one, tied one, and scored 227 points to their opponents' 44. The most outstanding victory of the year was the defeat of the Rebels, a well-coached team from South Denver. The Miners were outweighed twenty pounds to the man, but they turned their larger and very worthy foes back to gain a well-earned victory, 14-7 . The season reached its climax on Thanksgiving Day, when the Miners played Pueblo Cen- tenniall for the conference championship. The Miners fought gamely, but were unable to eke out a victory. Although they were defeated 13-7, the game marked the end of one of the best seasons in the football history of Trinidad High School. Y 1 I s X X Q-f f 'rw-w,.m....

Ernest Martinez won first place in the gruelling two-mile event. The 1941 track team is composed of veterans who performed excellently in every meet. The team took part in the Pueblo Invitational, the Trinidad Junior College Invitation- al, the Conference Meet, and the State Meet. The senior veterans are Fred Shew and Al Bailey in the Weights, Jim Murray, Paul Nelson, and Bob Gurule in the low hurdles, Jim Murray and Paul Nelson in the high hurdles, and Nelson in the high jump. Fred Shew, Jim Murray, Paul Nelson, and John Niccoli have lettered three times, Bob Gurule has lettered twice, A1- fred Bailey, once. All in all, these athletes made up a very successful team. T'1aclfi fo Vi That annually recurrent day of open hostility between the seniors and the teachers of Trin- idad High School the day of the Senior Faculty basketball game, was very gratifying to the sen- iors For the first time in the four year history of this "Peanut Bowl" classic, the seniors won. The class of 41 will go down on the pages of history and on the "Old Shaving Mug" trophy as Although Wrestling has not been of- ficially recognized among the minor sports of T. H. S., the mat-men have done much this year to promote inter- est in this phase of the athletic pro- gram, and it will probably soon take its place among the popular activities of T. H. S. Coached by Mr. Fred Stone, four wrestlers, Harold Norris, Bob Gu- rule, and Alfred Bailey, seniors, and Eugene Alpert, a junior, formed the team. The newly formed ski team, led by Dick Mc- Laren, a transfer from Grand Lake, madeaa fine showing at the State High School Ski Meet. Two other contestants, Jack and Frank Mason, assisted in winning fourth place for the team, and McLaren gained fame by winning the individual skier's cham- pionship trophy. Mr. Fred Stone, the coach, hopes skiing will become a bigger and better sport in T. H. S. and that next year members of the fairer sex will participate in the exciting program.

Led by Lester Sena, a veteran of three years and one of last year's cham- pions, the Trinidad Hi racquet wielders won high standing in all of their matches. The Trinidad High School golf squad, under the direction of Jack 4Walton, has again completed a very successful year. Competing in two conference meets in Pueblo, one state meet on the Broadmoor course in Colorado Springs, and one on their home course, they upheld the high prestige won by former Trinidad High School golfers.
