Los Alamos Reflects the New The year of the new is 1967-68, and the face of Los Alamos — “ The Hill City ” — , its new c o m m u n i t y buildings, its modern landscaping, its rapidly expanding residen­ tial areas, and its progressive s c h o o l s y s t e m r e fle c t th e modern trend. Los Alamos High School is in k e e p i n g w i t h t h e f r e s h t e n d e n c ie s .

F o r t h e f ir s t t i m e , LAHS s t u d e n t s received letter grades instead of nu­ m e r i c a l g r a d e s on t h e i r IBM r e p o r t cards.

Also during the “ Year of the N e w ,” 1967-68, Hill high s c ho ol s t u d e n t s witn esse d another change in the cafe­ teria, as vending machines gave way to a la carte menu selections, with both hot and cold foods. For the first time, the enrollmen t was too large — by 69 students — for all pupils together to attend one assembly in the auditorium; so seniors and juniors went to one session and sophomores to another. And when IMC opened, juniors whose petitions we re a p p r o v e d by teachers got to d r o p t h e i r s t u d y ha ll s to do i n d i v i d u a l study on “ ho n­ or status.”

1967â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 1968: the year of the new Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated event of this year was the opening of the Learning Materials Center. Other new happenings this year were the Christmas formal and the Hilltopper participa­ t io n (and t a k i n g secon d place) in t h e AA s t at e ba s k e tb a ll tournament.

September Begins The New Year S e p t e m b e r m a r k e d th e be­ g i n n i n g of the b e g i n n i n g fo r the sophomores and the begin­ ning of the end for seniors. The first day of s ch oo l was new, exciting, and confusing to the e n t e r i n g s o p h o m o r e s . They s t u c k in herds, p r o b a b l y f o r s e c u r i t y , se e k in g d i r e c t i o n s f r o m t h e up p e r c la s s m e n . To juniors and seniors, the busi­ ness of finding rooms was pret­ ty " o l d h a t . " The sch ed ul e s o f te n g o t m ix e d up, and s t u ­ dents found themselves sched­ uled for three study halls and no English class, or two classes at the same time. The lines to t h e g u i d a n c e office of te n ex ­ t e nd ed past th e ma in office. But these problems were soon overcome, and students found themselves situated c o m fo rt a ­ bly in the proper classrooms. A b o u t t h r e e weeks a f t e r sch oo l st a rt e d , s t u d e n t s a r ­ rived at school to find the lob­ by turned into a playground; a h a l f- a s s e m b l e d m o n k e y - b a r was propped up on trash cans. No b o d y q u i t e knew who brought it, for the pranksters wh o pu t it t h e r e d i d n ' t mak e much use of it. A few days lat­ er, the monkey bars were dis­ m a n t l e d and r e t u r n e d to U r ­ ban Park. September was a month for planning and getting adjusted. Fo o tb a ll gam es and a f t e r ­ game dances provided recrea­ tion. By the end of September, t h e s t u d e n t s f e lt like e s t a b ­ lished members of LANS.

Enthusiastic crowd packs the gym fo r the first pep rally of the year, giving a rous­ ing send-off for the Toppers before their first game, against Santa Fe High School — and a victory. Decidedly out of place in the lobby,'the monkey bars loom, to the great delight of students, and to the not-so-great delight of the a d m inis tratio n. The pranksters must have felt the students needed a change.

After-game dances offer a welcome change of pace fro m the routine of classes and homework, and are well attended by LAHS students.

Though everyone reluctantly returns to school, sum m er spirit does not di­ minish. Jake and Mark are still able to find tim e to clown around.

"M a jo rity of One" tryouts in September offer students a chance to prove their act­ ing talents. “ Majority of One" was one of the many Olions plays produced during the school year. Mr. Ross Ramsey, director of the plays, intently watches as stu­ dents vie for various parts.

Homecoming Sparks October For th e first year at LAHS, O c to b e r ca m e like a feline, leaving the M ar ch t r a d i t i o n behind, and everyone was hur­ ried and pushed around. School seemed to tak e the place of an "insanity factory." The Hilltoppers were winning games, Habte Kidane was run­ ning the cross country, Olions were choosing cast members, the Lookout was being printed and distributed, and photogra­ phe r Ri chard Haase was still leaving the light s on in the darkroom. Seniors declared war on the sophomores during that month. The traditional paint­ ing of the " L A ” seemed to have been neglected by the sopho­ more class.

Olion m em bers Dave Buckland. Janet Potter, Betty Szalay. and Amy McCorm ick get ready fo r ‘‘ David and Lisa.”

Highlights of the Olions’ '67'68 season were “ M a j o r i t y of One” in the fall, and the spring play, “ David and Lisa.” Adrea Koonce, Carol Nagle. Jo Grace Oakes, Jerry Mattys and Dave Buckland starred in “ A Majority of One.” Director Ross Ramsey chose th e play f o r “ the c h a l le n g e it offered the cast.” “ A M a j o r i t y of O n e ” deals with an intense American-Jewish widow who goes to live with her daughter-in-law in Japan. On the b o a t o v e r s h e m e e t s a Japanese diplomat who tries to win her over. The c o m p l i c a ­ tions involved in this romance are hilarious. The s p r in g play put on by Olions’ was “ David and Lisa.” Am y M c C o r m i c k and Gary Storm played the leading roles. The 52-scene play, never befor e pr od u c e d on stage, c o n c e r n s two t een ag er s in a school for disturbed children. David is afraid to be touched; Lisa has a split personality and talks only in rhymes. Olions is the n am e chosen by the LANS Dr am a Club. It comes from the word “ Olio,” which in show business means a c o l l e c t i o n , any kind of act, drama, or skit. The c lu b was f o r m e d by Director Ramsey and students in 1951. The name Olions was adopted in 1954. Olio ns gives s t u d e n t s an e d u c a t i o n a l e x p e ri e n c e in a cooperative activity, to present a q u a l i t y p r o d u c t i o n , bo th in acting and setting.

1967-1968: the year of the new This year brought a change for the Hilltoppers. Due to the in­ creased enrollment of LANS, the Toppers found themselves c om ­ peting against larger schools in the AA League. But despite the seeming disadvantage, the Toppers made an outstanding per­ formance and captured second place in the State Tournament.



Toppers Capture Third in Class AA A l t h o u g h th e H i ll t o p p e r s moved up to Class AA com pet i­ t i o n t hi s year, led by Coach Dale Perini, they ended with a winning season — six victories and four losses. Highlight of the season was a win over always tough Albu­ querque High, which went on to capture second place in the state t o u r n a m e n t . The meet with AHS had a special mean­ ing because it was also the Toppers' homecoming game. Los A l a m o s always had a chance of winning district title, w ith th e c h a m p not decided u n til t h e last game. T h e T o p pers were in a four-way tie, but were defeated by Del Norte of Albuquerque, 20-6. C o n s e c u t iv e v ic t o r ie s over Santa Fe, Raton, St. Michael's of Santa Fe, and Valley of Albu­ q u e r q u e set th e H i l l t o p p e r s ’ mo mentum. Then after drop­ ping a widely disputed contest to Durango, Colorado, 7-0, the LAHS team squeaked by Albu­ querque, 7-0. A loss to Manzano of “ The Duke City” started t h e T o p p e r s ’ dec line, a s t h e y dropped two of their final three games, to Roswell Goddard and Del Norte, and beat Gallup. Two LAHS players were elected to the All-State team — B o b B u t l e r a s a g u a r d o n first t e a m offensive, and Bruce J o h n s o n as h o n o r a b l e m e n ­ tion defensive tackle.

This y e a r ’ s H i l l t o p p e r s w i m m i n g team posted two first place finishes in relay meets and had a record of 8-2 in dual meets. The squad was led during the season by John Kelly, Dick Watts, and Mike Hatch. At the state meet, the team finished in sixth place as Highland High of Al­ buquerque once again dominated the meet. Those placing in state were Dave Ho verson, Mike Hatch, and C l i f f NaVeaux. Coach Bill Hu dson will have a fi ne team next year with many fine swim­ mers returning, according to reports.

John Kelly plunges into the pool well ahead of his opponents. Fast starts such as these lead the sw im m ers to big advantages and even­ tual wins.

David Hoverson stretches in an a tte m p t to give his team another win in the diving com petitio n. P e rfo rm ­ ance such as this gave David a fourth place finish in state.
