La Loma


Looking back on our 1964-1965 school year, we, the students, remember how much bigger and newer our school was becoming. Many stu­ dents were having classes in the new Home Eco­ nomics Cottage and the new addition to E-wing in September. In the middle of October the In­ dustrial Arts wing was open to students. As Feb­ ruary 1965 came, the new gym was available not only to the eagerly awaiting gym classes but to the even more eager basketball team. As we recall the past school year, memories of our teachers, friends, and acquaintances will al­ ways remind us of the fun, excitement, and hard work we had. Our enrollment became the biggest yet in the school’s history as approximately 940 students were in attendance. Your 1965 LA LOMA strives to give you an accurate reflection of the past year’s activities. We hope you will remember the 1964-1965 school year as a very memorable one!

Dedication Goes To M r. Hanson In 1960 Mr. Lawrence Hanson began his first year of teaching at Los Alamos High School. During these five years, he taught American Government and U.S. History. This was Mr. Hanson’s second year as head of the History Department. He was recognized by students for his sincere desire to educate them in a challenging but re­ warding way. His various activities included co­ sponsoring the Student Council and the Inter­ national Relations Club. With pride, we, the 1965 La Loma staff, dedi­ cate this year’s LA LOMA to Mr. Lawrence Hanson for his dedication to students.

Cottage Is N ew With the many new facilities of the Home Eco­ nomics Cottage, the girls had more opportunity this year to entertain graciously and freely. Most of the actual entertaining was done in the spa­ cious, Italian Provincial living room-dining room combination. And after many long weeks of planning and preparation, the Home Economics department successfully gave a formal dinner for the Board of Education in mid-December. Although the dinner was the main highlight of the year, the girls also entertained at teas, luncheons, and brunches. The Cottage is equipped with five kitchens and one demonstration kitchen, a large sewing room which is also used as the general classroom, a fitting room, and an instructor’s office. Adding color and warmth to the spacious foyer which opens to all parts of the Cottage is the large glass showcase where many of the girls’ projects and ideas were displayed.

English Stressed Emphasis on competition contiued to produce quality writing from students that was often entered in various writing contests. Special mention was made of state winner Ruth Fowler and runner-up Charles Calvin in competition sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English. Use of lay readers in grading mechanics as well as teacher evaluation gave students a careful account of their writing. Standardized English exams were used in de­ termining student weaknesses and needs and giving the student a comparative look at the school.

Courses Change

M r. W. C. C arter gladly assists A m erican History Students with a special panel discussion.

This year an advanced class for sophomores was offered to those showing interest in American History and with a high grade average in the ubject. Sociology and Economics proved to be of in­ terest to the students. Enrollment in these classes was noticeably larger than last year. The subject formerly called International Re­ lations was renamed Geography and Current Events and more stress was placed on the loca­ tion of countries in relation to the major events. A unified department, social studies continued to offer students challenges in thinking, an aware­ ness of current problems and their historical counterparts, and foundations of government.

Heading the Math department and also serv­ ing as President of the New Mexico Council of Teachers of Mathematics was Mr. James Meaders. A group of four students at Stanford Univer­ sity devised a new course, School Mathematics Study Group. Mr. Meaders is helping this study by teaching the experimental class to advanced seniors. SMSG deals with the study of calculus at a college level. Reports are sent to Stanford every so often on the progress of the experimental course. Considered the best preparatory course of Calculus and College Mathematics, the Illinois Math program was again used for the fifth year.

Changes Evident Changes were evident in the music department this year with a new orchestra leader. Directing the orchestra to its usual level of ex­ cellence was Mr. Rex Eggleston in place of last year’s leader, Mr. Sid Brantley. The choir was larger; enrollment exceeded 75 for the first time for Mr. Cooley’s vocal group. All State participation again gave evidence of the outstanding groups and individuals in each division of the department. M usic

Courses Linked Foreign language studies became more closely coordinated between the junior high school and the high school this year. This department has always been one of the most valuable assets of the school and remained in this role for the 1964-65 school year. The language labs were used throughout the year to improve pronunciation and develop variety.

This year the speech department had many new facilities, with extra space from the conver­ sion of the old home economics room. The room provided more space for small plays and speeches. An overhead projector and stage lights added to an interesting subject for the students. The speech courses offered were speech I, which is fundamentals of speech; speech II, oral interpretation; speech III, drama; and speech IV, debate. Mr. Black was the speech teacher and also sponsor of the Hilltalkers, the speech club, and the National Forensic League, a speech honorary. He was faculty assembly chairman and also had the duty of organizing the daily announcements.

Many students became familiar with the func足 tions and make-up of a newspaper in the journ足 alism class this year. The structure, printing, and general make-up of a newspaper were studied. A trip to Santa Fe to visit the office of the New Mexican was a highlight and an enjoyable ex足 perience for the journalism class. The students toured through the whole office and were shown many machines and techniques used in printing and publishing a newspaper. For the first time the journalism students published a special issue of the Lookout as a class project. Newspaper class published 12 issues of the Lookout and the yearbook staff enlarged the La Loma from 196 pages to 216 pages.

Home Ec. New The Home Economic Cottage which includes a classroom used also as the sewing room, a fit­ ting room, an instructor’s office, a cooking area with five kitchens and one demonstration kitchen, and a large living room-dining room combina­ tion, was another of the new additions. The Home Economics classes taught this year were Home Economics I,H, and IH. In Home Economics I, child care, sewing, basic cooking techniques, and family relations were taught. Home Economics II and III developed the study of those fields even further and also studied home nursing, marriage, and the home in all aspects. Family living was taught again this year. The course centered around personality, marriage, and family problems.

Driving Popular Driver’s Education, taught by Mr. Tommy Hightower, is becoming an ever popular subject for sophomore and junior students. The semester course involves six weeks of class­ room work which determine a semester grade, and four weeks of actual driving practice. After this is completed the students are assigned to study hall for the remainder of the semester. Along with teaching Driver’s Ed., Mr. High­ tower taught one class of American History dur­ ing the first semester, and was later appointed athletic and physical education coordinator.

Books Added


An addition of 300 new books were added to the library this year. The first semester hours were from 7:45 to 3:30 and open both lunches. The hours were the same second semester but closed during first lunch. About 14 students assisted Mrs. Butterfield during the day in checking books in and out along with other duties. Students often came in from their study hall to use materials for student research.

Electronics involved the study of electricity and currents. Boys were given an opportunity to work on cars during the special auto mechanics classes. Mechanical drawing, wood and metal shop, and art also were offered again this year. During the year half of the student body was enrolled in one of these courses.

Service Offered Mrs. W inters Cafeteria Head

Overcrowding was eliminated in the cafeteria this year by the Practical Arts building which provided space for the shops, previously adjacent to the cafeteria. The additional room was an im­ provement in the whole atmosphere of the eating area. The custodial staff exercised efficiency in all aspects of their work. The well-tended campus and buildings were a point of pride with every­ one connected with the school.

T h e cafeteria staff are Mrs. V irginia Nichols, Mrs. R uth D w indle, Mrs. Je rry Fabec, an d Mrs. B arbara W inters.

P.E. Uses Gym I’he new gym was opened for use by the boys’ physical education classes, February 15. For years the boys’ and girls’ gym classes were held in the same building, hindering some of the activities, but with the addition of the new gym the girls have the old physical education center for themselves. Volleyball and badminton will be played more by the boys now because of the larger playing area, and when the seats are pushed back the balconies become a perfect place for gymnastics and weight lifting. If restraining nets are installed, the balconies can be used for such things as bat­ ting cages and practice areas for golf or tennis. There are two locker rooms in the gym. One for the physical education classes and the other is the teams’ locker room which features two whirlpools and will house the athletic teams.

Student Life

Student Life Is In early September, students again see the opening of a new school year. It takes a lot of adjustment to get back into the school routine after a long summer. Along with the new school hurs and the overpasses, the opening year brought a foreign student from India and sent Ba Wood­ ward, Los Alamos senior, to Brussels, Belgium. The life of the students remained as varied as always with almost countless activities.

Volleyball, Dances, Projects Noted Although a new gym was one of the many ad­ ditions to the school this year, the old gym was frequently used for such activities as Homeroom Volleyball Tournaments and pep assemblies. Festivities held after athletic events included the annual Sweethearts Dance and the Pinata Party. Greatly improving the beauty of the town was the removal of the names on the cliff just outside of Los Alamos. This Student Council sponsored project also included painting the motley water towers in town. Drama class, also known as Speech III, proved to be an interesting and a most congenial elective in its presentation of various plays. Students were kept well informed of school functions through the use of the daily announce­ ments over the public address system. 34 Student Life

N ew Area Used A total of 575 students were enrolled in some commercial business course this year, and they were the first group to use the new business edu­ cation area in E-Wing. Five classrooms containing outstanding equip­ ment were built on to E-Wing. Also included in the new additions was a teachers’ workroom which is shared by all the teachers in the wing. Among the new classrooms are a 42-station Typing I room, a complete IBM Electric Type­ writer advanced typing room, one of the few in the state, a Shorthand I room which is also equipped with manual typewriters, and the busi­ ness machines room. “This is the most adequately equipped and modern business machines room in the Southwest as it has a data processing key punch machine, a large accounting machine, selectrics, calculators, adding machines, and regular typewriters,” stated Mrs. Bess Hegler, head of the business department, about this new course.

Seniors Enjoy One O f Best Trips Perfect weather provided the Senior Class of 1965 one of the best senior trips in recent history at the always popular, attractive Bishop’s Lodge outside of Santa Fe. Headquartered at the swimming pool of the Lodge, seniors enjoyed the horseback riding facil­ ities, the tennis courts, horseshoe pitching, shuffleboard, and improvised recreations of touch football, softball, and volleyball.

They suffered a mild catastrophe when the paper mache football player came loose from its moorings on a jeep and fell to the road­ side while beittg ntoved from Barranca Mesa. For their skit in Topper Revue the seniors chose to poke fun at the national elections with a portrayal of a small New Mexican town elect­ ing its sheriff. Mr. Art Nichols was again head sponsor and had most of the responsibility for organizing and supervising numerous senior activities and spe­ cialties. The seniors happily closed their four year stay at LAHS with Baccalaureate in the Civic Audi­ torium and Commencement in the new gym. K it D aly and R oger W aterm an are senior class favorites.

Juniors Show Ingenuity, Skill After electing class officers in September, the Junior Class faced their yearly problem — raising money for the Junior-Senior Prom. Money was raised by selling candy, soda pop, and gum at both football and basketball games. A novel idea in concessions at football games was selling hot baked potatoes. Baked at home, the foil covered potatoes were usually all sold by half-time. A first place float in the Homecoming parade won the Juniors recognition and cause for pride in their covered wagon in connection with the homecoming theme of “Topper Roundup.” One of the highlights of the year was the arrival of the school rings in October. The title of the Junior Class skit for Topper Revue was “ God Save the World.” In this skit England was pictured as it might be if Ringo Starr became Prime Minister.

For the first tim e at L A H S a tie in elections results in having two girl favorites for th e J u n io r Class. T h e Class Favorites are from left to right, Sylvia N achlinger, Joe Daly and Lee C ham bers.

Sophomores Try H igh School Life The soi:)homores, forming the largest class ever to enroll in Los Alamos High School, were wel­ comed by English Achievement Tests as they en­ tered high school. After the initial shock, they were confronted by the problem of initiation, but because of the administration’s decision to ban initiation, the sophomores were asked to white-wash the LA on Burnt Mountain. The class undertook the annual sophomore task of selling popcorn at the football games and highlighted the football season with a third place in the Homecoming Parade. Homeroom volleyball and Topper Revue were activities in which the sophomores successfully participated. The J.V. basketball team, coached by Jim Hig­ gins, was composed entirely of sophomores and ended with a winning season. Another highlight of their first year of high school was the ordering of school rings.

Gym Dedicated


xr \ '




On February 5, 1965, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers played their first game against Santa Fe High in the newly completed gymnasium. The modern $750,000 gym was constructed to provide many advantages that the old gym could not. Among these include a 3,150 seating capacity, completely furnished locker rooms which have two whirlpools, and a bigger lobby with the facilities for each class to serve larger crowds with refreshments. Preceding the dedication ceremonies, the jun­ ior varsity played the Santa Fe J.V .’s. Dr. C. W. Richard, Superintendent of Schools, gave the opening address and Andy McQueen, President of the high school student body, gave the formal dedication. The game was attended by many local prominent citizens and their wives. To commemorate the occasion, special souvenir programs were printed.

Cheerleaders A dd

At basketball and football games where the cheerleaders couldn’t show up, the performances of the teams showed that something was missing. Senior, Barbara Nachlinger, was the head cheerleader, and the other varsity yellers were Sylvia Nachlinger, Judy White, Leta Combs, and Parker Van Hecke. With the added strength of a boy cheerleader, it was possible for a larger variety of cheers, such as pyramids, and also many handsprings by Parker himself

special Something To Athletic Events Varsity cheerleaders were busy last summer raising money by bake sales at the labs so they could attend the week long cheerleading school in Albuquerque. Funds given by the school paid for the major part of the varsity uniforms. Pepping up some of the sparsely attended jayvee games were the Junior varsity cheerleaders. Karla Stein headed this group. The others were Stacy Williams, Susan Hall, Irene Gonzales, and Barb Seegmiller. This group had a bake sale at Mesa Market to help pay for their uniforms.

Grid Squad Compiles 7-2 Record Single W ing Team Upsets Toppers

C oach G erald B arry, H ead C oach T om m y H ightow er, and C oach R ay G ran d staff led th e H oppers to a successful 7-2 season.

The 1964 version of the Los Alamos High School Hilltoppers fought their way to a respect­ able seven win and two loss season. The losses were dealt by Santa Fe and Santa. Fe St. Michael’s. The Toppers hit the height of their season during the Raton and NM M I contests. After this high spot was obtained the Toppers tailed off when they met two single-wing offense teams in a row, the last being St. M ike’s. The Horsemen nipped the Toppers to take the district crown. For the second year the head coach was Mr. Tommy Hightower. Mr. Ray Grandstaff was the line coach and Mr. Gerald Barry concentrated on teaching the backfield its tricks. In the two years before Mr. Hightower became coach the Toppers had a combined record of four wins and 14 losses, but have now reversed that in the last two seasons with a 15 win and four loss record, plus one district title and one appearance in the state tournament.

Santa Fe A nd M ud Bog Opener Playing in the mud for their first game, the Toppers seemed to be slowed more than their opponents, Santa Fe, and lost. After this first game the Toppers lost Tom Tesche for the remainder of the season. Up until that time he had been one of the starting half­ backs. Roger Waterman then moved into take Tom’s place. This proved to be a smart move as Roger won the Most Valuable Player and Hardest Running Back awards which are voted upon by the team at the end of the season. St. Mike’s scored first in the all-important last district 2A game, but the Toppers came storm­ ing back with a 30 yard field goal kicked by Art Johnson and a touchdown, and -led up until the last minutes of the final period when the Micks blocked a Topper punt and moved in for the winning score. St. Mike’s later moved on to take the state title with a win over St. Mary’s. 112 Football

J V Season Is Even In his first year as head coach, Mr. Audie Woodard led his primarily sophomore team to a three win and three loss season. The jayvees opened the campaign with a 20-19 win over the Imps of Santa Fe High. They then eased by Espanola 26-7 and later in the year stopped the Bees, 13-6. The Topper losses were a 14-6 whip­ ping from Manzano’s Barons, a 20-6 loss to the McCurdy varsity, and a hard fought 21-7 defeat by the hands of the Cardinals from Las Vegas Robertson High School. In the McCurdy game the Toppers gave up all the Bobcat points in the first half and were the only team to score after that.

Toppers’ B id For 2nd Crown Upset There was a sudden end to the Hilltoppers’ basketball season this year when they were upset by St. Pius X in the first game of the State Tournament. The Toppers were going for their second straight Class A crown. They won the title in 1964 with a win over arch-rival St. Michael’s. The Toppers finished the season with 21 wins and seven losses; three of these losses were dealt by St. Michael’s. The Toppers did have many good nights throughout the season, however. Their first good performance of the campaign was when the Espanola Hornets, a team which set three state tournament records, were beaten by the Toppers, 74-53. Coach Burt Buehrer’s team showed their stuff in the first two games of the Farmington Tourna­ ment. They won over Grand Junction Central, 84-38, and over Center, Colo., 106-37. The second St. Mike’s game proved to be the best of the three, but the Horsemen managed to pull ahead in the closing minutes of the see-saw battle to win, 89-81. The Toppers upended the Class AA cham­ pions, Valley, in an overtime, 93-90. The Toppers trailed by as many as nine points at times but came back for a 13 point overtime period and the win. All in all the Hilltoppers turned in a top season. F R O N T ROW: M anagers, C harles Pacheco, Bob V an Gemert. B A C K ROW: E rnie Sm ith, Steve H ill, Ja c k Fellers, Doug Seegm iller.

Snow Possible Factor In Season The season was marred by an unfortunate situation when a snow storm hit Los Alamos and the surrounding areas the afternoon before the first St. Michael’s game. Los Alamos school officials were under the opinion that since no make-up date could be de­ cided upon between the two schools that St. Michael’s was going to show up for the game the evening of the snow. When the Horsemen didn’t show up and their school officials heard that the game had been de­ clared a forfeit they protested to the New Mexico Activities Association. There were many opinions voiced by the var­ ious downtown newspapers, with some favoring the case presented by Los Alamos and others favoring what St. M ichael’s said. The final de­ cision, however, stated that the forfeit would be upheld, unless Los Alamos wished to play the game anyway on a date decided by Los Alamos officials. Topper officials, not wanting to have a forfeit on their record offered to give St. Mike’s another chance. The Horsemen, of course, ac­ cepted this offer and won the game, 65-49.

Ending one of their best seasons, the LAHS Golf team shot their way to a District 2A cham­ pionship. As the team entered state competition, several members were felled by measles and were unable to play. The divoters managed to secure fifth place despite the measles. Bruce Staake and Dennis McCloskey led the A division pack at the end of the first day’s round but failed to place at the tourney’s end. Bill Wykoff shot a hole-in-one during the first day’s practice round but was unable to continue with his luck during the remainder of the state meet partially because of an attack of the measles.

P -W ing Is N ew One of the new courses offered this year was Electricity, which was held in the new practical arts wing. The first semester of this two-semester class dealt with the study of circuits and funda足 mentals of the subject. Second semester students concentrated mainly on the vacuum tube and its use in circuits. Metal Shop I and II were offered again this year. Metal I concerned itself with foundry and study of welding. Metal II was a continuation of Metal I and also included the heliarc and arc welding in the course. Another addition to the curriculum was Auto Mechanics. The class afforded students the op足 portunity to learn the fundamentals of automo足 bile repair. Students generally worked on their own cars and used school supplied machinery in the well equipped garage attached to the practi足 cal arts building.

Top Students Noted Valedictorian, Salutatorian Address Class

The honors of Valedictorian and Salutatorian are the highest honors to be attained by graduating seniors. The requirements are that these students place first and sec­ ond in their class standings according to grade points. The Valedictorian for the Class of 1965 was Linda Barnes. Linda achieved extremely high marks during high school and with this, won the respect of the faculty and her fellow students. The honor of Salutatorian went to Donna Schutz. Donna was active in National Honor Society, being vice-president in her senior year. She also participated in varied class activities as well as language and science work.

Banquet A n d Prom

H ugh Felt is readied for the M ad H a tte r’s T ea P arty with a special h a t from Dr. R ichard, who added special life to the T ea P arty theme of the Senior B anquet.

Lewis Carroll’s “Through The Looking Glass” came to life in this year’s Junior-Senior Prom. The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party was the theme of the senior banquet, and the speakers took the name of Carroll’s characters. Pat Trujillo’s mural, showing many of the characters of Alice’s fantasy land, set the mood for the Prom as did the huge mushroom centerpiece. Highlighting the dance was the crowning of Stevie Bruington and Jim Foglesong as queen and king. Chosen as princess and prince were Sue Partridge and Dave Chezem.

Ju n io r girls efficiently serve the B anquet guests a dessert of Alice’s Fantasy, following the m ain course of Filet of M ignon. W ith a b ack d ro p of a giant teacup, the Playm ates provide vocal e n tertain m en t at the Banquet.

T ruly one of th e highlights of the Prom was the huge m ural depicting the T hrough the Looking Glass them e of Alice in W onderland. Pat Trujillo, a m em ber of the Senior Class, lent his talents in creating the drawing.

Fantasy Land Comes To Life The land of Alice came to life through the decorations of the Junior Class for the 1965 Junior-Senior Prom with the special high­ light of a giant mural featuring the characters of the Looking Glass Land. Drawn by Senior Pat Trujillo, the mural truly brought the Prom guests to a fantasy land. A hidden water well, a giant mushroom, and a solid draped ceiling were noteworthy parts of the decorations. Lindy and the La Veils of Albuquerque was the featured musical group.


A caterpillar sits in safety on top of the m ushroom as students dance a Spanish polka, finding it difficult in formals.

Boys’ A n d Girls’ State Noted

“Meeting new people was the best part of Boys’ State,” commented Paul Page and Mike Benziger, two of the delegates, when asked about the convention. Taking place at the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell June 7-14, the convention was held to teach the boys basic government procedure. The delegates set up a gov­ ernment of their own similar to that of the state of which elections and political rallies were a part. The delegates were Roger Waterman, Paul Page, Chuck Calvin, Mike Benziger, Hugh Felt, Mark Summers, Robert Penland, and Carl Flock. Similar in design to Boys’ State was Girls’ State which took place one week later in Albuquerque at the Univer­ sity. When the girls arrived they were divided into six cities which later participated in elections. State elections were then held. A trip to the Santa Fe Legislature was one of the highlights of the week. The delegates were Barbara Nachlinger, Judie Ford, Donna Schutz, Sue Tucker, Peggy Everett, and Christine Davis.

“That Was the Year That Was” was the theme for this year’s Topper Revue. Again spon­ sored by the Student Council, Topper Revue was a big success with acts ranging from concert piano solos to modern dances featuring the “swim” and the “surfer.” The class skits which were the main highlights of the show were “Election Day at Topolabambo” by the seniors, “Mods and Rockers” by the jun­ iors, and “Fads and Fancies” by the sophomores. This year’s Topper Revue was fortunate to have “The Boys’ Shy Ballet,” a lovely ballet pre­ sented by several of the senior boys. M ary K ay T hom as plays “ T e n d e rly ” as a piano solo as one of the non-com edy num bers of the show.

For Topper Revue Dressed in light pink tutus, the boys proved to be an asset to the entire shovy. Three performances vyere given this year be­ ginning with a Friday evening show, a Saturday matinee, and a hnal Saturday evening perform­ ance. Introducing the acts and adding warmth and continuity to Topper Revue were Luanne Schlatterer and Tommy O ’Conner, mistress and master of ceremonies. Only through many long hours of rehearsal and the much needed instructions of Mr. and Mrs. Ross Ramsey were the students able to pre­ sent such a successful show again this year.

Theme Is Western Celebration Covers Three Days Because of the many interfering activities and gen­ eral pandemonium, Homecoming was held over a three day span this year. Beginning with the tradi­ tional bonfire on Wednesday night and carrying over through the parade and game against New Mexico Institute on Friday, the festivities were climaxed with the dance on Saturday night. The theme for the activities sponsored by the Stu­ dent Council, was “Topper RoundU p.” As usual, each class and various group organizations partici­ pated in the parade with the Junior Class float win­ ning first prize. Cathy Lewis reigned as queen for this occasion with Kit Daly, Liz Pierce, Elea­ nor Hall, and Norlene Phil­ lips as attendants.

Art students had more storage and working room this year due to the addition of the Prac­ tical Arts wing. Interested students attended an impressionistic art exhibit in Albuquerque and the University of New Mexico opened competi­ tion to allow Los Alamos students to compete in recruiting poster contests. Advanced students worked in the commercial art line. Stationery, calling cards, note paper, and mail­ ing labels were only a few print jobs open to Graphic Arts students. In addition to these op­ tional projects, students were required to work on a booklet dealing with some facet of the art and shop department. This will be printed and used in enrollment in future years. Wood Shop was contained in the new build­ ing. Wood Shop I was concerned with foundry and metal spin patterns while Wood Shop II concentrated on carpentry. Students were re­ quired to build scale model houses. Later a cross section of a full-scale house was constructed by the class.

Christmas season would hardly be complete without the eye-catching Yuletide scenes put on the lobby windows every year by the Art Club members. These drawings seemed to typify the feelings of the students for the major holiday. Early in the year Art Club members accom­ panied students in the regular art classes on a trip to Albuquerque to visit the University of New Mexico gallery. A later trip was planned for the club to visit some of the Taos galleries. As always, Art Club members were available to assist groups with posters or other projects re­ quiring the special talents of art training. Club members adopted a new name this year pertinent to the Southwest culture, Club de las Bellas Artes.

Attended by 130 people, the annual National Honor Society banquet, held March 18, was a great success. Thirty-seven new members, a record high, were initiated during the banquet which was held on St. Patrick’s Day. This year the club took on the project of raising money for a scholarship to be given to a deserving senior at the end of the year. Selling candy in the lobby after school was the main source of income for this project. They also sold paperback books and held occasional bake sales during lunch in the cafeteria. Only students who meet the requirements of good grades, active leadership, and participation in extra-curricular activities are considered for membership in the organization.

The New Mexico North Speech Tournament hosted by Los Alamos clim axed more than a dozen tournaments the Hilltalkers competed in. Los Alamos was the top school winning 14 out of 19 positions to be taken to the state tourna­ ment. The success of the speech club was due to the weekly meetings where members practiced de­ bating with an average of 15 members attending every meeting. Another contributing factor was the responsibility assumed by each member in following the Hilltalker Oath. The club also sponsored an assembly of a heckling debate between the top teams. Mike Daly, a Hilltalker and NFL member, was afforded the chance to see exciting debate in action. On Decmber 26 he left Los Alamos to be­ come a Senate page in Washington, D.C.

Key Club Still Outstanding Group The Key Club, a service organization for both school and community, was once again one of the most outstanding clubs in the school this past year. In order to further scholastic goals, the Key Club started raising funds for a Key Club schol­ arship. On January 29, they sponsored a dance and at Thanksgiving and Christmas sold fruit cakes. All profits went into the fund. In community service the club painted house numbers on curbs and aided in the fund raising project for the John F. Kennedy Memorial by selling Kennedy Albums at football games. M em bers of K ey C lu b sold booklets o f J o h n F.

Students In A. V. Provide Service


Members of the Audio Visual Club learned how to operate the combination projector this year, an instrument which handles slides as well as film strips. Projectionists who belonged to the club also had practice splicing film and working with the tape recorders. The purpose of the club is to provide the school with students trained in audio-visual tech­ niques. Besides being capable of showing films for classroom use, members are qualified to pre­ pare transparencies from magazine pictures which can supplement the teacher’s materials.

FJVC Studies Mentally Retarded Service was again the primary goal of the Future Nurses Club. This year the girls interested themselves in the mentally retarded. In Decem­ ber the members gave a Christmas party for the mentally retarded children of Los Alamos. Later in the year, the club sponsored a school program assembly on mental retardation. During the year, several speakers gave inform­ ative talks to the club on possible medical occu­ pations for girls. One of the most interesting was a talk by Mrs. Emily Hines of the Los Alamos Medical Center on physical therapy. The girls of the club felt they gained much by the services they performed and the information they obtained through the FNC.

Future Teachers Hear Speakers FTA members learned about the teaching pro­ fession this year from the various guest speakers who attended the meetings. A former LAHS stu­ dent, now a student teacher, talked about prob­ lems in teaching and explained the purpose of the Student Education Association, a collegelevel teacher’s club. At the Christmas meeting, freshman college students returned to Los Alamos to discuss col­ lege life and the teaching courses that they were taking. Other speakers instructed the club members on the teaching of retarded and handi­ capped children. Career Month in April provided the FTA members with an opportunity to observe class­ room activity in local schools. The spring ban­ quet closed the year.

GAA Plans Powder P u ff Basketball The Girls’ Athletic Association started a new activity this year when their all-star girl’s team challenged the Pep Club to a powder puff bas­ ketball game. It is hoped that this will become a traditional game between the two clubs. Along with this activity, the members partici­ pated in tournaments in ping-pong, badminton, archery, softball, volleyball, and basketball. The girls in GAA also were the referees for the home­ room volleyball games. Another new service was helping at the track meets. The Girls Athletic Association was one of the many clubs to contribute to the Foreign Exchange Fund.

The Houdini Magic Club, now in its second year, continued the promotion of magic through an act in topper Revue, an annual magic show, and several separate shows done by individuals. At the early meetings in the fall, the old mem­ bers put on exhibitions for the new ones to get them more accustomed to the principles of magic. Mr. Leland Schachterle, the club sponsor, seemed to enjoy the repeated teasing and threatening that the club would vanish from him. The Houdini Magic Club issued special thanks to Mr. Robert Visel, the art teacher, for the donation of his magic tricks for the year.

I A Club Expands Into New Areas Expansion has been the highlight of the re­ cently formed Industrial Arts Club. The club has expanded into the newer and bigger areas of Auto Mechanics, Graphic Arts, and Electronics. The costly new Practical Arts building has greatly helped the club in this ex­ pansion movement. For the last two years the Industrial Arts Club has entered the Students Craftsman Fair in Portales. Last year they entered two steam engines both of which won excellent ratings, the highest given in this high school competition. The club also assists the community as a serv­ ice organization with its projects. Officers of the In d u strial A rts C lub are D ave P onton, vice president; Bruce P artrid g e, secretary; D ave C arroll, president; and Steve Y oung, treasurer.

Continues Complete Tear Coverage An early year vote by the students strongly supporting the continuance of the summer de­ livery book along with the increase in size of 196 to 216 pages helped bring about many changes. More space in the senior section enabled the activities to be set off separately and gave each senior more individuality. More coverage was also possible in the student life and athletics sec­ tions. Student life grew from six to eight pages and in athletics, football and basketball each re­ ceived two additional pages. Extensive artwork by Pat Trujillo on the in­ troductory and theme pages provided for striking features and extra development of the themes. The Lookout staff again helped by writing some department stories and picture captions.

Lookout Changes Pasting w indows for pictures and readying the paper, C huck Blackwell an d G ay lan d B ryant start an issue.

The Lookout was printed by photographic offset this year rather than the letterpress method used in the past. The reduced cost involved in the new method enabled the staff to put out twelve issues in­ stead of the usual eight. The new method presented a challenge to the staff with the new appearance and different types of layout. Sharon Snyder, editor, and Rod Geer, sports editor, began doing the paste-up for the paper on the third issue with the help of Mr. Rod Young, sponsor. The Lookout made use of the new varityper in the Practical Arts building by staff members setting some of the copy on the machine to obtain different type sizes and variety. At Highlands Day the staff members attended workshops and saw how their stories compared with those of students from other schools.

During their second year, the newly formed Magmamites, a geology organization interested in everything from local minerals to valuable gems, traveled throughout the surrounding area on their monthly field trips. A tour of Ojo Galiente included the Petaca Mines, and later the club visited the Pecos and Socorro areas. The club is mainly interested in New Mexico minerals not only because of their locality but also because of the many varieties of minerals to be found in New Mexico. The second annual picnic in May, several guest speakers including a lapidarist who gave a talk on grinding and polishing stones, working with their own lapidary equipment, demonstrations and slide shows were other highlights of the Magmamites.

“In spite of the fact that the club is small, with limited activities and membership, it has been successful this year, especially with regards to the Pinata Party,” stated Kathy Rose, Spanish Club president. The club’s most outstanding project was the annual Pinata Party held in December. It brought in $110 profit, more than the club had ever made. This was due mostly to radio station K R SN ’s help in advertising and supplying the music. The club’s purpose is to provide students with activities where they can enjoy the Spanish language, along with the history and culture.

Scientists Try Balloon Launch Launching a balloon with a camera and in­ strument package attached was the Science Club’s main project for the year. Made from dry cleaning bags, the entire balloon weighed less than 20 pounds. 1 he movie camera, which took pictures every few seconds, helped the students trace the exact path of the balloon, aiding them in their study of air currents of northern New Mexico. The club also designed a workable recovery system which enabled them to retrieve the movie camera.

Sing-Sing Club Enjoys Folk Music No, Sing-Sing is not an organization for incor­ rigible students; it’s a club for those who enjoy “pickin’ and singin’.” Having held by-monthly meetings throughout the year, the sing-singers amused themselves with familiar and new folk songs. Along with several parties, the club helped the Southwestern Folksingers Guild sponsor a hootenanny. In its second year of existence, Sing-Sing is one of the newest as well as one of the most active clubs in the school. L eading th e Sing-Sing m em bers, M r.

The fall production, “The Mouse That Roared,” by Leonard Wibberley, was a great success. Again offering stu­ dents a chance to participate in a successful Broadway musical, the Olions along with the high school orchestra and choir put on “Li’l Abner” in the spring. Other activities of this organization included supplying ushers for the Little Theatre and Light Opera groups, supplying the stage crew for Top­ per Revue, and holding a Christmas and an endof-the-year party as well as presenting a scholar­ ship to one of its members.

This fall the Olions put on the comedy play, “The Mouse That Roared.” Luanne Schlatterer portrayed Gloriana the Twelfth, queen of the European duchy of Grand Fenwick. Pat Trujillo played Tully Bascom, leader of the Grand Fenwickian army. The plot involves Grand Fenwick coming in contact with the Q-Bomb, the most powerful weapon in the world. Before Grand Fenwick secures the ultra-powerful bomb the country declares war on the United States honing to lose. This is because the U.S. takes care of their defeated enemies. But the Fenwickian army of 26 bowmen wins the war. M r.

The comic strip village of Dogpatch and its lively, lovable characters came alive on the Olions’ stage with their production of “Li’l Abner.” The spring musical was again double cast. Daisy Mae was played by Luanne Schlatterer and Susan Blatz while Chuck Ramsey and Fred Gallaher filled the big boots of Li’l Abner. Rick Mendius and Tom O ’Connor were cast as Mar­ ryin’ Sam, and Earthquake McGoon came to life in John Trujillo and Dave Carroll. The antics of the characters and the colorful scenes will live in the memories of the cast and the audience.

Los Alamos representatives depicted Nation­ alist China, presenting that country s views and attitudes on various matters of world affairs brought up in the sessions. Ten other New Mexico schools participated in the meetings, each one representing a nation be­ longing to the United Nations or dealing with that organization.

French Banquet Popular Activity The French club, Les Miserables, proved very successful in its second year with increased mem­ bership and participation and doubled attend­ ance at the annual banquet. The first activity of the year was a talk by Jim Ribe on his year of study at the Institut auf dem Rosenberg in St. Gallem, Switzerland. Jim ac­ companied his talk with various pictures, maps, and samples of textbooks and tests. The other event of the year was the annual banquet, held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Loucks. The dinner serves the dual purpose of entertaining as well as educating club members in the art of French cookery. The menu included pate de foie gras, la soupe a I’oignon, whiting with veloute, coq au vin rouge, and flan. In Eng­ lish this would be chicken liver pate, onion soup, chicken baked in wine, and pudding with cara­ mel sauce.

Lettermen Improve Sportsmanship The Lettermen’s Club, composed of any ath­ lete who has lettered in a varsity sport, continued the tradition of improving the sportsmanship and cooperation between the various schools in New Mexico. Lettermen sold popcorn at basketball games, provided escorts for Homecoming, presented flowers to the Homecoming Court, and super­ vised the gym floor during home basketball games as part of their service to the high school. Dennis McCloskey, a senior letterman, was honored by the Pep Club as the 1965 Sweetheart at the annual Sweetheart Dance. L etterm en officers are Bob M orrison, president; D ennis McGloskey, treasu rer; an d J im Griffiin, vice-president. Sponsors are M rs. Ray Grandstaffi, M r. T om m y H ightow er, and M r.

Chess Matches Limited By Conflicts


Playing practice matches and challenging for ladder postions were primary activities of the Chess Club during the first semester. One inter­ scholastic match was played in which Los Alamos beat Santa Fe 5'/2-4'/2. Other matches were un­ able to be scheduled because of conflicts. The promising team did not enter the District Tournament or the State Tournament because most of the members were involved in tennis and other spring activities. The officers of this year’s Chess Club were Dan Susco, president, and Karen Peterson, secretary. Mr. Hart Schwarz was the sponsor of the organ­ ization. Dan Susco was top on the club’s performance ladder this year. He was followed in order by Tom Carson, Keith Arbtin, Bruce Panowski; Mark Hessing Paul Roensch Melanie Briscoe, Karen Gray, Karen Peterson, Bill White, and Ricky Mendius.

Pep Club Activities Promote Spirit

OlFicers of th e Pep C lu b this year are Ju d ie Ford, secretary; Ja n e Hilton, president; Miss M arga Lamb, sponsor; Janice Bar­ rington, treasurer; and Stevie Bruington, vice-president.

Leading the student body in school spirit and team enthusiasm, the Pep Club again cheered and supported the Toppers in their athletic events. Fall activities included decorating the goal posts, forming victory arches for the team to run through, and half-time performances given by the drill team at the home games. In February the club gave their annual Sweet­ heart Dance. The dance was again a success. This year’s Sweetheart was Denny McCloskey crowned by President, Jane Hilton. The theme of the dance was Japanese and the cafeteria was brightly decorated in multicolors. Spring activities included an athletic banquet for which sixty of the members served and a bas­ ketball game against the GAA. Although the Pep Club team was greatly defeated in their game, much spirit and hilarity were prevalent. Points were given for attending any athletic event, serving on committees, being in the Drill Team, and taking numbers. These points were used in presenting letters at the end of the year.

After the crow ning of the Pep C lub Sw eetheart comes the tradition of giving the next dance to the Sw eetheart and Pep C lub President along with the candidates an d their dates.

D rill Team N ow Honorary Uniforms Distinguish Members New to the Pep Club this year was the honorary system of choosing girls to partici­ pate in Drill Team. Because of this system, the Drill Team was more efficient and adaptable. The bright gold uniforms distinguished the members from those girls only in Pep Club. Aside from their annual Homecoming perform­ ance the members also presented pompon routines during half­ time of some of the basketball games. Always skilled in its per­ formance, the Drill Team’s Precision marching highighted the Homecoming parade; the formations with the band leading up to ♦^he presentation of the Queen at halftime added to Homecom­ ing ceremonies. The gold uni­ forms augment­ ed by the green pompons vividly c a r r i e d t he school colors be­ fore the public.

Ski Club Again Takes Trip To Taos The Ski Club again took an overnight ski trip to the Taos Ski Valley December 21 and 22. This trip gave the participating members a chance to try their skills on new and different slopes and to watch topnotch skiers in action. Several members of the club including Jim Foglesong, Carl Buckland, Pam Wallis, and Judie Ford entered competitive races throughout New Mexico and Colorado. Carl Buckland and Jim Foglesong ended their year with a trip to Sun Valley, Idaho, where they competed as part of the New Mexico Boy’s Ski Team against other top teams in the Western States Junior Cham­ pionships.

Under the direction of Mrs. Pat Edmonds and Miss Marga Lamb, the Summit Seedlings club again this year carried out their motto of beauti­ fying Los Alamos by planting and gardening the flower bed adjacent to the Civic Auditorium. Among other fall projects the garden club par­ ticipated in the Homecoming festivities for the first time this year. Their float won third prize in the parade. In December several of the members visited the annual Christmas idea show in Albuquerque sponsored by the garden clubs of that area. Highlighting their spring program and adding much color and warmth to the Home Economics style show were the floral table arrangements made by the Summit Seedlings. Thus the goal of basic flower arrangements was obtained.

Soccer Group Turnout Good Organized last year by U lf Henke, the Ger­ man foreign student, the Soccer Club again had a good turnout with 40 boys interested in the sport. Their first game, held in the fall, came as a disappointment when they lost 4-0 to St. Michael’s College after a hard fought battle. The snow melted and practices were again held at Urban Park. Also along with spring came plans for a game with the Santa Fe Preparatory School, a school well known for its team.

192 Student Council

The Student Council had several projects throughout the year to raise money for the For­ eign Student fund. These included such activities as after-game dances, blanket throws, and bake sales. “Topper R ound-Up” was the theme for this year’s Homecoming festivities, again sponsored by the Council. Members of the Student Council traveled to Tucumcari in March to learn various duties and activities of a council during the annual State Student Council Convention. Campaigns and elections were held in May for the 1965-66 school year officers.

Business Club Emphasizes Careers

Officers of the T o p p er Business C lub this year are R oberta G allagher, treasurer; K ath y Francis, vice-president; an d C ar­ olyn W ilder, secretary. M issing is L arry Hicks, president.

Topper Business Club was again one of the most active clubs in the school. Meeting at least once a month and with an approximate mem­ bership of 45, the club emphasized careers in business by visiting various business offices in Los Alamos and invited prominent leaders in the field of business to speak to the members. Other undertakings included the installation of officers, after which members and their parents toured the school’s new business department and were served refreshments. A good money raising pro­ ject, again this year, was selling candy which was also one of the many ways members were able to achieve points. Headed by Larry Hicks, the Topper Business Club, ended one of its most successful years.

N ew Business Day Highlights Tear In place of the annual Snowball Dance, Busi­ ness Day, held March 11, was the highlight of the 1964-1965 school year for the Topper Busi­ ness Club, headed by Mrs. Bess Hegler and Mrs. Jolene Jordan. Approximately 25 members par­ ticipated in Business Day. They toured the Com­ puter Center and an accounting area of the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory. A dinner was held that same evening and out­ standing members were honored. Kathy Francis, vice-president of the club, was honored as Miss Ideal Secretary. Larry Hicks, president, and Roberta Gallagher, treasurer, were also honored for their work in the club. The observation of the practical aspects of the business field did much to show members and prospective business workers what the profession IS.

Topper Band Numbers Over 100 The familiar Topper band was larger than ever this year, numbering 102 musicians. As usual, the group added spirit to all home foot­ ball and basketball games with their rousing marches. One of the high points of the year for the band was their par­ ticipation in the North Central Large Group Festival at w hich they received several excellent ratings. The organiza­ tion also made an im­ pressive showing at their M r. H eltm an three public concerts, one of which featured Mr. James L. Whitlow as guest soloist and Mr. William E. Rhoads as guest conductor. The band again performed at com­ mencement. D em onstrating their skills in the parad e for the New M exico S tate F air is the talen ted Topper m arching band.

In addition to their three annual concerts held in the fall, at Christmas, and in the spring, they performed at two school assemblies. At one of these assemblies, instruction was given to the student body about the instruments of the orches­ tra. For the first time this year the group com­ peted in a state-wide music festival in Artesia in late spring. A majority of the orchestra students were chosen to participate in the annual All State Music Clinic at which Peggy Everett was named concert mistress. A further activity for many members of the group was playing for the Olions spring musical. M r.

Choir Provides Singing Opportunity The choir is organized for the purpose of giv­ ing interested students with sufficient singing ability the chance to participate in group singing and gain more knowledge about music. The choir took part in various activities throughout the year, including several assemblies, concerts, and the traditional caroling at Christmas. In addition, it participated in the music clinic held at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, the AllState Festival held in Albuquerque, and Topper Revue. A highlight of the year was the Olion’s pro­ duction of the spring musical, “Li’l Abner,” in which the choir, with the leadership of its di­ rector, Mr. Cooley, participated.
