JUNIOR PROJECTS SUCCESSFUL THE JUNIORS BEGAN their active school year by presenting the first class assembly on the morning of November 17. On this occasion they combined their talents to produce a class song and yell and an original skit entitled, " Working on the Railroad. " After this Darrell Wetherbee, business manager, started the preliminary work of secur- ing money for the annual Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom. The class sold candy, cokes, football programs, and inaugurated after-game dances. When the necessary money had been earned, the Juniors planned the very success- ful evening of April 22, when they were hosts to the Seniors at the Wigwam. The chair- men responsible for the success of this event were Phyllis Mernagh, Charles Roach, Ken- neth Wood, Vernon Frost, Wanda Damron, Daphne McAbee, Mavis Shackelford, and Betty Jean Manning. As a class the Juniors participated whole-heartedly in April Frolics. They placed sec- ond with Ray Stewart, Willie Fulks, Wanda Damron and Corinne Dudley as runners-up for king and queen. Leading these many colorful activities were the class officers: President " Woody " Gaillard Vice President Kenneth Wood Secretary and Treasurer Wanda Damron Business Manager Darrell Wetherbee Sponsors Mrs. Juanita Jamison and Miss Alta Mortenson (20) STANDING: Monty.

They know that the ability to type well is a valuable asset for them at the pres- ent time and perhaps will be a source of income later. In the driver training class, students not only learn the rules for good driving but also gain a practical application of these rules as a means of achieving highway safety. (21) Sophomores Have Active School Year TO THE SOPHOMORES belongs the privilege of welcoming the incoming Freshmen with an initiation. The 1948-49 Sophomore Class joined in this activity whole-heartedly and as a result all the school reeked with the odor of onions. After much preparation the class presented an assembly where they exhibited a green and white shield bearing their motto, " If we rest, we rust. " Then followed their skit portraying after-school activities of L. H. S. students. This brought forth cheers and laughter. At Christmas time the Sophomores decorated the study hall and trimmed the Christ- mas tree for the school. Everyone participated in boosting the class to win third place in April Frolics, and Betty Lee Dudley won third place for queen. Despite the fact that the Sophomores chose Friday the thirteenth for the date of their dance nothing but good luck befell all who attended. Students who held offices in the Sophom ore Class were: President James Ackman Vice President Dick Scott Secretary Crystal Armstrong Treasurer Jean Cunningham Sponsors Mr. M. Berg and Mr. I. D.

CENTER: Freshmen Become Full-Fledged Members of Student Body AFTER PROVING THEMSELVES such good sports at their thorough initiation by the Sophomores, the Freshman Class were eager to plunge into their studies and prove them- selves as capable as other L. H. S. students. One of the outstanding assemblies of the year was that put on by the Freshman Class at which the highlight was a skit showing how the L. H. S. teachers might have acted when they, too, were in high school. The master of ceremonies, Bill Sweeney, kept the program rolling smoothly, and everyone played his part well. Although the Freshman Class placed last in April Frolics, they showed there were no hard feelings by sponsoring a dance honoring the king and queen of April Frolics with the entire student body and faculty as their guests. Their class officers included: President Henry Needham Vice President Martha Fulks Secretary-Treasurer Toby Peterson Sponsors Miss Ybarra and Mr. Borg (24) STANDING: Cram. Hancock. Libby. Snifien.

The shop class where students learn to use their hands as well as their minds and produce many useful and attractive articles. One must know something of the past to prepare himself for the present and the future. The Spanish class not only teaches the Spanish language but acquaints students with the Spanish customs.

Owls Win Valley Six-Man Championship THE LITCHFIELD OWLS under the able training of Coach Milt Berg completed an unde- feated season to walk away with the Valley Six-Man Football Championship. The fast and tricky Blue and Gol d Team had smooth sailing from its first encounter with the Bagdad Thieves to the championship game with the Scottsdaie Beavers. Smooth sailing because the twenty-one boys that made up the Owl team were out on the gridiron from the first day of practice to the final minute of the season, drilling. From the first limbering up exercises until the last minute of playing time in the final game, every man put in hours of work, blocking, running, passing, punting. It was worth it! Not one of those boys is sorry for the long hours spent sweating and working on the athletic field, for in those hours the boys learned what a team stands for — that it isn ' t one or two good players, but the whole group working together that make up a ball club. It wasn ' t only the joy of carrying the ball across the chalk lines or the good feeling at making a hard block or tackle while the crowd yelled and applauded that made the boys out night after night for practice. That feeling is the part of football that is short lived. The real spirit and life of the team is found in the locker room — the before-game dressing and nervous joking and the after-game showers and counting out the score. Comradeship — the feeling of belonging to a team that functions like a well oiled machine, is the root of the boys ' love for football. Long after the cheering of the crowds has faded from the memory, the boys will still remember the locker room and the practice field, for that is where the games were won. come FOOTBALL SCORES Date Owls Opp. Sept. 24 — Bagdad 18 7 Oct. 1 — Wickenburg 35 15 Oct. 8 — Peoria 59 19 Oct. 15— Gila Bend 52 6 Oct. 22 — Bagdad 77 6 Oct 29 — Peoria 118 Nov. 5 — Wickenburg 57 28 Nov. 12— Gilbert 57 22 Nov. 19 — Scottsdaie 31 20 (28) Seven Owls Win All-Star Honors SEVEN OF LITCHFIELD ' S OUTSTANDING PLAYERS who won state recognition are pictured be- low. WILLIE FULKS, fast stepping junior halfback who saw action in every game of the season, received honorable mention on the Valley All-Star Team. JACK GUEST, hard fighting senior who occupied the left end position, was named end on the all-star second team. FRANK GOODGAME, 185 pound high scoring senior end, co-captain and defensive standout, copped a place as end on the all-star first team. KENNETH WOOD, 190 pound rough blocking junior center, earned a berth as center on the all-star first team. CHARLES WILLBERN, senior, co- captain passing ace and fast ball handling signal caller, was placed on the all-star second team. DON COULTER, powerful junior center and defensive standout, received honorable mention. RAY STEWART, fast and husky junior, backfield offensive ace, won a spot on the all-star first team. These boys were the spark plugs who pushed the Owls through a season in which they overwhelmed all opposition with a scoring a erage of 1.4 points per minute. In nine games the Blue and Gold ran up a score of 504 points to their opponents ' 123 — an average for the Owls of 56 points per game. The Litchfield powerhouse out-gained its opponents by three yards to one and tallied 37 touchdowns on passes. Fullback RAY STEWART provided the team ' s greatest scoring punch, steam-rolling his way into the opposition ' s end zone for a total of 214 points. The number two spot in scoring honors was occupied by FRANK GOOD- GAME with 93 points, while halfback WILLIE FULKS came in for a strong third place with 88 points. Q-Z. ® CZ 7 . Fulk, Guest.

Stewart, Garcia, Berg Cagers Place Second In District Finals THE FIGHTING OWL FIVE were defeated only by Ajo to take a strong second place in the West Central Basketball Tournament, and named to the all-conference first team was Ray Stewart, Litchfield ' s high score dependable. Of the regular scheduled games, Litchfield lost five and won eleven. All in all, it was a good season for the Owl squad. The usual starting five were Wood, center; Willbern and Stewart forwards; and Goodgame and Guest guards. The team had only three substitute players: McNeil, Craigo, and Garcia. With such a small team, it was necessary that every man be able to play another ' s position. Coach Berg drilled them in the practice of not only being able to fill their own positions but any other position as well. There were no specialists on the Owl team, but there were five men on the floor able to play in every position. They were adept at guarding as well as shooting, a team that was grounded all the way around in a fast and tricky game in which skill, not luck, determined the winner.

Olsson, this year gained the needed experience that will help build a strong hardwood varsity next season. The Owlets furnished the fans with many thrills in the preliminaries, which in some cases were such hard fought events that they matched the varsity games. In addition to playing the opener in every basketball game of the season, the junior team scrimmaged with the first team two or three nights a week after practice. Outstanding members of the team were Brownlie, center; Roach, forward; Hardi- son, forward; Tomlinson, guard; Mack, guard. These boys usually made up the starting five, but as a rule the whole team had a chance to play with regular sub- stitutions being made throughout the game.

At the annual Arizona relays at the Arizona State College at Tempe, Willie Fulks, Litchfield ' s speed king, placed third in the 100 yard dash. Also placing in the meet were Bill Hillenius, second place in shot put with a heave of 45 ' 2 " and Joe Lipscomb, fourth place in the mile event. Under the coaching of Mr. Coor the spikemen developed their specialties. Frank Goodgame captured a number of first place wins in the discus event; Dick Kingsbury was the only Owl pole vaulter for the season; Bill Zeigler ran the 880; Ray Stewart entered the century and 220 events; George McNeil starred in both the broad and high jumps and Ray Heisel was a 440 entrant. Seven track men qualified to go to the state meet at Tucson May 6 and 7: Don Coulter, Owl entrant in the 880 yard run; Ray Stewart, century entrant; Willie Fulks, 100 yard dash and 220 yard dash; Bill Hillenius, shot put; Frank Goodgame, discus; George McNeil, broad jump, and Joe Lipscomb, mile entrant. Three of the cinder men placed in their events. Goodgame won third place in the discus. Willie Fulks won fourth place in the 220, and Ray Stewart placed fourth in the century. (34) Batsmen Face Tough Schedule COACH OLSSON ' S ROOKIE SQUAD, boasting only three returning lettermen, could not over- come a steady losing streak this year, but they did build a strong foundation for next year ' s diamond season. The Owl nine will lose two graduates: Charles Willbern, and George McNeil, shortstops and pitchers. The Owl pitching battery was made up of McNeil, Moreno, and Willbern. This year the first base position was held down by Trujillo, Wood, and Ray. Stewart played second and Polley played third. Moreno and Ackman served behind the bat, and the fielding was done by Tomlinson and Needham in left field, Wood in center, and Brownlie in right field. Willbern and McNeil served alternately as pitcher and shortstop.

Racquet Club Receives Pointers THIS YEAR ' S LARGE TENNIS CLUB made cm impressive showing under the coaching of Mr. Berg. George Jamison and Pete Lopez, John Tripp and Charles Roach, returning lettermen, did a large part in racking up a good record for the year. Although matches were at a premium this year, the Owl racquet wielders managed to get their share of wins in season play. The Litch- field club was represented in the District Tourna- ment, but the competition proved too formidable, thus keeping the Owls from competing in the state tourney.

Council Discusses Student Problems WHEN SOME OF US slipped into Room 55 on the first and third Monday mornings of each month, we heard plans being made for Patrons ' Day and the visit of the eighth grade students. We also heard the problems of the coke machine and the conduct at assemblies being dis- cussed. The Girls ' League constitution was passed upon and the all-day picnic at Mesa organized. Promptly at 9:45 o ' clock each day the Student Council, met, Earl Brown lightly rapped the gavel bringing the members to attention and officially opening the meeting. After Billy Hardison had read the minutes of the previous meeting and Millie Groulx had given the financial report, the immediate problems of the day were brought up for discussion. The Student Council at L. H. S. was always busy, and in all that it did had the best interests of the students and the school in mind. Occasionally the activities of the Council took various members to other schools to study student participation as it was conducted elsewhere. Also in December the four senior officers were sent as representatives to the State Student Council Convention at Flagstaff.

L. Tidwell (42) Council Plans Activities For Girls ' League EACH WEDNESDAY MORNING that the Girls League met, several of us raced to the study hall and hid under the front seats. We enjoyed with the girls the numerous guest speakers who were both entertaining and instructive. Also we were at the Council meetings. The Council is the planning group for the larger organization and is composed of representatives from each class. The new Girls ' League constitution written by Millie Groulx and Lavina Sowers was formally adopted in September and immediately put into effect. Activities engaged in this year by the Girls ' League were the all-girl party, " Harvest Hello; " the sponsoring of aftergame dances; and the big project of the year, the Winter Fantasy. L. H. S. was well represented at all state conventions; and on April 29, Miss Mor- tensen, Lavina Sowers, Wanda Damron, Crystal Armstrong, and Toby Peterson attended the California-Arizona Girls ' League Convention.

Boys ' Alliance Makes Progress WE WERE ON HAND at the boys ' meetings also, and so we know that definite progress has been made in the establishment of the Litchfield Boys ' Alliance as a club that has for its aim the guidance and character building of all boys in the school. Following the elections in September of members from each class to the Council, this group planned for the year a varied program which included films on personality and talks on various phases of character building and etiquette. The club ' s social highlight of the school year was the Boys ' Alliance first formal dance, the Wild Harvest. This was held in the Community Hall where the students danced amid colorful autumn decorations aid to the rhythm of delightful music. To wind up the year ' s activities, the members of the Alliance selected four softball teams for intramural competition. In all its planning, the Boys ' Alliance Council has had the thought in mind that, " It is better to build boys than to mend men. " This year ' s officers included: President Bill Lynn Vice President Kenneth Wood Secretary George Templeton Treasurer Vernon Frost Sponsor Mr. C. Coor C44) Girls Learn To Become Homemakers SLIPPING IN UNNOTICED, we attended many of the F.H.A. meetings and watched the girls demonstrate their ability to become tomorrow ' s homemakers. An impressive exhibit illustrat- ing the way the club prepares its members for careers in America ' s future was sent to the Arizona State Fair. Under the leadership of Joanne Johns, president; Betty Ann Couch, vice president; La Nell Henry, secretary; Doris Snydal, treasurer; and Miss Alta Mortensen, sponsor, much has been accomplished by the active members of the Litchfield F.H.A. chapter during the 1948-49 school year. These achievements have been depicted on a bulletin board — the result of the combined talents of the club members. Every girl feels deeply the significance of the F.H.A. creed: We are the Future Homemakers of America We face the future with warm courage, And high hope. For we have the clear consciousness of seeking Old and precious values. For we are the builders of homes, Homes for America ' s future. Homes where living will be the expression of everything That is good and fair. Homes where truth and love and security and faith Will be realities, not dreams. We are the Future Homemakers of America We face the future with warm courage And high hope. STANDING: Swenson, Ehemann, Cox, Sanders, Hancock, Henry, Robinson.

Many Students Enter Contest WE ATTENDED EACH DIVISION of the 1949 Declamation Contest for Litchfield High School because we knew how much preparation the students had made for this. The Declamation Contest, an annual event, was under the direction of Mrs. Juanita Jamison, the speech instruc- tor. On the evening of Monday, February 28, the following students participated in the ora- torical division: Ona Allen, Crystal Armstrong, Wanda Damron, Rose Marie Evans, Elwood Gaillard, Millie Groulx, Jack Guest, Pete Lopez, Carol Mack, and Kenneth Wood. The win- ners were Jack Guest, first place; Ona Allen, second place; and Crystal Armstrong, third. Millie Groulx, Harriette Hansel, Ray Heisel, Joanne Johns, Jacque Sanders, and Lavina Sowers competed in dramatic readings on the evening of Monday, March 7. Those placing this time were Ray Heisel, first; Lavina Sowers, second; and Millie Groulx, third. The humorous readings were given on the afternoon of Monday, March 21. On this occasion, Doris Snydal won first place and Elwood Gaillard and Betty Ann Couch tied for second. Other students who participated at this time were Edythe Keese, Vernon Frost, and Nancy Wallick. (46) Desert Howl Wins Many Honors " I TOLD YOU to get that theater ad three days ago. Where is it? " " Where ' s the correction fluid? " " If you people don ' t get your stories in on time, we ' ll cut the paper down two pages each issue. " These were the frequent battle cries that were heard in the journalism class as the year 1948-49 passed quickly on the calendar. But never discouraged, the class put forth much effort and came through with flying colors. Through the work and guidance of Mr. Borg, and with the assistance of two editors, Carol Crosley and Bill Lynn, the DESERT HOWL became one of the best mimeographed papers in Arizona, in spite of the lack of adequate room. This bi-monthly publication was read with interest by parents, alumni, and adult sub- scribers, as it grew in size and content through the course of the year. With extras appear- ing for all the important events, the senior journalists have been one of the most busily and noisily occupied classes in L.H.S. The school paper has won many prizes, and is a member of the Quill and Scroll Society, and has always done its best in presenting the news to the student body. On May 7 of this year the Desert Howl won first place among the mimeographed papers in the annual state contest for school newspapers conducted by the University of Arizona.

Chorus Provides Musical Entertainment THE BEAUTIFUL MELODY of the voices of Litchfield High School ' s A Cappella Choir under the able direction of Mr. W. J. Bahn has given pleasure to numerous audiences during the school year. Early in the season the choir broadcast from the Arizona State Fair a program in con- junction with bands from other Valley schools. Also early in December the choir was featured over KOY on Bill Lester ' s program, " Caval- cade of Christmas Music. " At the annual Christmas Pageant at L.H.S. the beauty of the Christmas story and the tableaux were greatly enhanced by the choir ' s singing the familiar Christmas carols as well as such numbers as " Beautiful Savior, " " March of the Three Kings, " and " Today There Is Ringing. " On March 15, Music Night, the choir sang both religious and secular selections. Among the former were " Adoranus Te Christe, " " Cherubim Song, " " To Thee We Sing, " and " Thee with Tender Care. " " It ' s a Grand Night for Singing, " " Oh, What a Beautiful Morning, " " The Erie Canal, " and " This Is My Country " were the secular numbers. The girls ' trio composed of La Nell Henry, Corinne Dudley, and Jean Cunningham sang the Brahm ' s ' Lullaby. " A boys ' trio, Elwood Gaillard, George Jamison, and Bill Lynn told the story of the Piazza Tragedy in song. (48) BACK: Manning. Henry. Reese. Allen, Palmer, O ' Neil, Lopez, Ray. CENTER: C. Mack.

After the prologue, which set the mood for the occasion, came the impressive can dlelight processional. Then the readers began the beloved Christmas story. As it unfolded, the words were illustrated by beautiful scenes on the stage; and the beauty of these were enhanced by the Christmas carols — old and new. Some were sung by the grade school choir, and others by the very fine L.H.S. A Cappella Choir. After the last scene of the very moving tableaux, a boys ' verse choir gave the benediction which was ended with a seven-fold amen by the choir. , ' ?T -(tf J) (SO), Shepherds gaze at the light of the Bethle- hem Star. . . .

Band Practices For Glendale Music Festival THE HARMONIOUS BLENDING of notes from various instruments could be heard each day issuing from the Community Hall at 2:30 in the afternoon as the Litchfield High School band practiced under the direction of Mr. W. J. Bahn, who led the boys and girls through snappy marches, medleys of old familiar tunes, and overtures. Probably the most colorful public appearance the band made was en New Year ' s Day when it marched in the huge Salad Bowl Parade in Phoenix. Prior to that, it had played a medley of carols at the school ' s Christmas assembly. On Music Night, the band entertained with several selections. During some of the tricky marches Corinne Dudley and La Nell Henry twirled their batons. A trumpet quartet composed of Millie Groulx, Harriette Hansel, Jean Cunningham, and Charles Roach played " Loch Lomond. " A short concert was also presented on Patrons ' Night. The members of the band climaxed the year by being a part of the mass band composed of all North Valley band members which presented a concert at Glendale on May 10. (52) ON A STARLIT NIGHT, to the exotic strains of an orchestra, a royal procession led to an ancient castle where Lavina Sowers crowned Frank Goodgame and Carol Crosley as " Sir Knight and His Lady Fair " of the Winter Fantasy.

The smiling faces in the picture indicate the enjoyment that this occasion brought to all who were present. (56) 3.

In order to publish the book, the class successfully carried out various projects in which all members of the group participated; and so all seniors are responsible for the success of its publication. However, in addition to students who are named elsewhere, others who fulfilled spe- cial assignments should be given recognition. The staff writers included Millie Groulx, Nellie Jean Robinson, Doris Snydal, Lavina Sowers, Carol Mack, Olga Moreno, and Bill Lynn. The group responsible for the snapshot pages was composed of George Jamison, Car- men Turpin, Jacque Sanders, and Bill Lynn. The typing was done by Mary Garcia, Pearl Carney, Carmen Turpin, and June Swen- son, while Sally Allen, Bill Hillenius, Josie Moreno, and Lavina Sowers helped the busi- ness manager sell the annuals.
