Reviewing their last year in high school, the members of the Class of '50
have but one regret--that they cannot go through it again . . . The outstanding
characteristic of the Senior year has been the hustle and bustle of school life
and the great fun of at last becoming "big wheels" . . . Led by Bob Harris and
Dwain Haines, first and second semester presidents, the Seniors have enjoyed
four really important social affairs, the gala Senior banquet at Christmas time,
the formal Senior Ball, the Senior Sneak Day picnic in the spring, and the Iunior-
Senior Prom . . . Other Senior activities this year included business meetings,
announcement selection and numerous meetings through the Senior Problems
classes at which the students heard informative talks . . . Demonstrating a growing
maturity, most Seniors buckled down to their studies . . . The first semester honor
roll, showing more Seniors than any other class, is a direct result of this new
growth and purposeful attitude . . . In every phase of school activity, the Seniors
showed their leadership abilities . . . The centennial class of '50 can proudly
look back on a year of achievement and forward to that day after graduation
when they shall take their place in an adult world . . .

in high school . . . Ed Alto, voted "most likely to succeed" by fellow classmates,

A CAMPUS LANDMARK
The stars and stripes slowly ascended the pole-finally arriving at its
peak . . . Below, hundreds of students stood with bared heads to pay tribute to
the memory of Don Walkenshaw-one of the best athletes Arcata High has ever
produced . . . Don met sudden death in a tragic swimming accident at the Senior
Picnic last year . . . His fatal plunge made such a profound impression on his
fellow students that they donated funds to build a memorial in his name . . .
In the words of Allen Ham-guest speaker at the dedication-"This is the Amer-
ican way-dedicating a flagpole in honor of a typical American boy" . . . Rev-
erend Albert Blood opened the ceremony with a prayer and closed it with a
benediction . . . Boy Scouts from the Color Guard marched out to raise the flag
as the band played the National Anthem. Hushed silence pervaded the scene
as the students slowly departed at the end of the ceremony . . . The spirit of Don
Walkenshaw shall live on in the hearts of future generations of AUHS students
as they pass our newest campus landmark . . .

The student body watches as
the flag is raised at the dedi-
cation of the Don Walken-
