STRAWN OTIS HOUPT Superintendent of Schools T'S Assistant Superintendent MESSAGE 'Qfucumrari Hpuhlit Snlqnnls Ulucumrnri, Hein dmexicn omcs or suvemurenoem October 13, 1958 Dear Students: Your schooling is rapidly becoming more important to each of you as the world becomes more involved and complex. Today you have a real opportunity to build your life on solid ground by improving yourself educationally for tomorrow. The educational foundation that you are now building or have built in the Tucumcari Schools should make of you a successful citizen for the future. Yes, the Hkeyn to a happy and useful life is a well planned educational program carefully thought out. When opportunity knocks at your door, be ready. Best of luck. Sincerely yours, ZJMALJ Dr. Norland W. Strawn School Superintendent NWSfmw Aa- MRS- W- C- MCCOY MRS. DELLIS RUSS 6 SCCYGWTY Secretary PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE MRS. FLOYD YOHN, Secretary Dear Students: Education is a key which unlocks many doors and opens the way to opportunities which one without this key cannot hope to get. Education is probably the most important key, but without the keys of responsibility, dependability, emotional stability, honesty, concern for others, serious purpose, firmness of fundamental beliefs, and others, which we sometimes classify under the single word character, the highest benefits of an education may be missed. I sincerely wish that each of you will find that Tucumcari High School has been a major key to your pursuit of happiness and a successful, worthwhile life. Sincerely yours, R. G. Stephenson, Principal Tucumcari High School MR.R.G.STEPHENSON Principal BOARD OF EDUCATION MR. C. L. COPELAND President MRS. A. T. GORDON MR. EUGENE D. KELLY Clerk Vice -President MR. L. C. STRAWN MR. JOHN A. ELLIOTT The Board of Education has a great responsibility which must be discharged with unselfishness. Their efficiency must be measured not only by the time they personally devote to school problems but also by their wisdom in choosing school officials, and by the extent to which they make it possible for the specialists in their employ to admin- ister the best educational program. The sincere efforts of this Board have been outstanding. MR. OTTO DILLON Vocational Agriculture Junior Sponsor MRS. R. W. GREEN Business Education Sophomore Sponsor MR.

The air is filled with excitement: this is a magic night - the night of the Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom. The boys are strangely mature in their white dinner jackets as they call for their dates. The girls put the finishing touches on their hair, and they are ready to go. Everyone is beautiful on this night of nights. Victor Copeland, Master of Ceremonies, welcomes the guests. Gary Foote, Lon Cottingham, and Jay White place the silhouettes on the back wall. Bobby Adcock, Senior Class President, presents Howard Kinkead, Junior Class President, with the traditional hatchet. There is noisy chatter as the couples gather in the cafeteria before the banquet starts. The Seniors are nostalgic as they remember last year's big event, but they cannot remain so, for this is a gay, a happy, time. The banquet was served by the Seniors of 1960. U Entertainment at the banquet was furnished'by the Blue Notes. JUNIOR-SENIOR PRoM AND BANQUET The conversation continues during the meal, but a hush falls on the room as the Master of Ceremonies, Vic- tor Copeland, rises to introduce the guests and welcome the young men and women. After the traditional Pres- entation of the Hatchet by the Senior Class President to the Junior Class President, Dr. Norland Strawn gives a short talk on the meaning of the Mardi Gras. Entertain- ment was music by the Blue Notes and several panto- mimes. After the entertainment, everyone adjourned to the gym for the dance. The Grand March, led by the Senior Class President Bobby Adcock and his date. The room could hardly be recognized as the same place in which ball games were held.

The Sophomores were kept busy serving punch. All too soon, the final note was played. The stu- dents were happy as they left. The sadness, the realiza- tion that for the Seniors this was the last time. Dr. and Mrs. N. Strawn, and Mr. and Mrs. R.

Approximately 200 projects from senior high, junior high, and elementary schools were entered in the three divisions: general science, biology, and physical science. The fair was judged by Mr. Lowell Potter, Mr. R. H. Hale, and Mr. Roy Isler, who chose three projects each from senior and junior high to go to the State Science Fair to be held in Socorro, New Mexico, on April 12, 1958.

The car, the suckers, and the banners portray various methods of campaigning used in the election. 30 The election of the president and vice-president of the student body takes place in the spring, at least three weeks before the close of school. Those eligible for the office of president and vice-president are those who possess the qualities de- scribed in the Constitution. Candidates are those whose petitions have twenty -five or more names. The president has a great responsibility. He pre- sides over all student body assemblies and student council meetings, he represents the school in all school affairs, and he executes the laws of the Asso- ciated Students of Tucumcari Senior High School ac- cording to the Constitution.

Today's YUCCA is a story of the students, their achievements, and the activities of Tucumcari High School. From the dreams of yesterday, comes this rec- ord of today, to become a history tomorrow.

The Student Council Safety Committee at the district meeting listens to state patrolman, Leo Teague, Dear Fellow Students, Student Councils vary in purposes, structure, size, and name to such an extent that there are perhaps no two in New Mexico which are alike. To the close observer this does not represent confusion but a conscientious effort to have each organization meet the needs of each individual school. Students need practice in working democratically with a group thereby gaining a keener appreciation of government, creating habits of respect for proper authority and improving school morale. ln closing I wish to thank the student body and faculty for their support during the past school year and I wish all of you success in your future undertakings.

The school year of 1958-1959 was a most successful one for the Mixed Choir. The schedule began with a Christmas program, a tele- vision appearance, and a variety show. The variety show followed the theme of the heritage of the Americans. Later in the year the choir went to Artesia for the chorus festival. Last year, when the fes- tival was held in Carlsbad, the Tucumcari choir returned home with an excellent rating. Other programs were musicals and shows. It has taken a number of years to build such a fine choir and well worth the time of the students who helped build it. Wudiu , LE A.: , Q., - ' , ff!

This year, under the direction of Mr. Lloyd Patton, the Tucumcari Mixed Choir presented a new idea. It was called "A Christmas Treat, " and was just that to those in the audience. The program began with the more serious numbers and as it progressed it turned to the lighter, happier numbers. To add variety, the 'Blue Notes' sang their Christmas carols and the 'Girls' Trio' blended into beautiful harmony. It was a perfect 'Christmas Treat' to help build the key to a more rounded education, .f-is GMI CHEERLEADERS Rattler Cheerleaders: Nancy Heitz, Marguerite Kelt, Lila Martinez, Gay Scruggs, and Jackie Parker, JACKIE PARKER NANCY HEITZ GAY SCRUGGS Head Cheerleader LII-A MAR-1-INEZ MISS REDHAGE MARGUERITE KELT Sponsor 1 AE , 5?

BOYS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION Basketball Badminton players, Charles Bailey and Barry s B, Stone. For all general purposes, we may de- fine physical education as a procedure used in education to bring about useful changes in human conduct to the end that a more wholesome and better integrated personality results. Thus though it may be said that it is developing the physicalmake-up of the in- dividual, at the same time it is a means to educating the individual.

The boys fought hard but despite their strenuous efforts, lost five games out of the nine. However, the schedule was harder this year than it was last year, as we played against the better teams in the state. We won our first game by beating Clayton 7 to 6. Our next two games were by wider margins, 26 to 13 in the Raton game, and 27 to 15 in the Ft. Sumner game. Then, on again, and off again, the season ended with an excellent game, 33 to 15, when we played Portales. Seniors, playing their last time for Tumcumcari in The Homecoming Game with Portales, were: Norbert Aragon, Lon Cottingham, Sammy Kent, Roy Kleindolph, Jerry Lobb, Jimmy Lucero, Jimmy Lumpee, Kenneth Mitchell, Charles Richards, Rex Smith, and Ray Teakell, a junior, who will not be eligible next year.

And if Aunt Lottie, a daring old soul, had been able to resist her lifelong impulse to climb down a ladder in the moonlight, the elopement might have succeeded, Besides the excitement of the coming wedding between Leslie Allen and Bruce Hamilton, there was the planning of a first formal dance by Angela, the fourteen year old sister, with her best friend, Patsy Conover. Hal Allen, the serious and conscientious son, was about to enroll in Harvard, but de- cided instead to become a part time owner in a pool hall with "Dutch" McCaffrey, All of this led to a delightful three act comedy.
