Just Beyond Our Eyes There Lies .

a silent conception and a slowly-yawning awakening to the birth of motion. we gaze into the miracle of the crystal sword that rises each day from the mountains’ depths only to ripen and disappear into the earth’s open arms again. the motion of rainy summer afternoons melts into butter-streaked hillsides of warm honey autumns, and winter, whose icy manacles lock bony limbs in transparent prisms, finally surrenders to the demands of a new generation. as the seasons bloom and decay, so the seed of nature is reborn without end.

Cheerleader Peggy Day leads a yell at one of the many pep rail allies.

Students plunged into fall like amateur divers: nervous but determined. September produced a new crop of scared sophomores and first-year teachers, who braved the countless indignities and practical jokes to finally triumph as individuals rather than just part of a faceless mob. By October unsteadiness had diminished to be replaced by the security of routine. November brought football games, a peace march, and an accumulation of homework. Soon the changing aspen and cold days signaled the approach of winter.

A small girl from Biafra’s Ibo tribe is one of thousands of Ibo children suffering from advanced malnutrition.

It was a dramatic year. There was little room for mediocrity in view of university take-overs, an undemo­ cratic Democratic convention, Rus­ sians vs. Czechs troubles, and un­ stable ground in California. It was an agonizing year: starving children in Biafra and overweight Americans; the tragedy of Vietnam and diplomatic stalling at the Paris Peace Talks. Yet, somehow, it was a beautiful year.

The class calls for im­ promptu speeches and no one is feeling particularly assured with the threat of impending doom. Besides impromptus, pantomines, dramatic interpretations, prose and poetry readings, and debates are also in­ cluded in speech and its related courses.

Fainting with tempra, fixing a car­ buretor, drawing sketches of pnlley wheels, or preparing special faculty dinners—all are included in the diversified practical arts department. Though the courses are many and varied —from interior decorating to metal shop— students are encouraged to practice their talents in their preferred area of art. Art students prepared a mural for the lobby, took a trip to Taos, made sandals, and worked with a variety of materials. Other practical arts pupils pursued such activities as fixing a broken circuit in elec­ tronics class, printing the literary publica­ tion of Pegasus, drawing bine prints in mechanical drawing, learning how to keep a car in peak running condition, making a metal nameplate for the front door in metal shop, and designing stationery and Christ­ mas cards.

Critics say that Olions is the most profess ions al high school drama club in the Southwest. There are 125 members in Olions. Each year $100 scholarships are given to outstanding members.

Experience is needed to be good at anything, and the chess players get plenty of valuable practice. The members meet everyday from 12:15 to 12:45 to play. Organized 12 years ago, the club has been in every district tournament since then. Promotion of the popularity of the game of chess is one of the purposes of the organization.

Everything from doughnuts and cokes to phone books and spirit but­ tons were sold in the Student Council bookstore this year. This new addition to LAHS by the pupil government body was placed in the Girls’ Gym concession stand and was operated throughout each school day by SC members. Other student necessities sold there included required reading books, school supplies, candy bars, and Topper sweatshirts. In addition to operating the book­ store, SC held several spaghetti din­ ners, attended a special County Day in which a mock session was held, sponsored the district convention, began a publications and issues Com­ mittee, held an assembly where stu­ dents had an opportunity to voice their opinions on school rules and regulations, and sponsored the annual homecoming dance.

At Girls’ State, which was held at UNM last June, the co-eds even tried wading in the fountain. Boys’ State was held at New Mexico Military Institute, also in June. Staters’ main accomplishment for 1968-69 was to generate student inter­ est in the flag and what it represents. A poll was taken in which pupils were asked their opinion on how often the pledge should be said, what the pledge should be said, what the pledge means, and other questions concern­ ing the flag. The majority of LAHSites felt the pledge should be said daily and, consequently, each morning during homeroom it was led by a Stater.

Formed in 1962, the French club has been going strong ever since. Though there was a French banquet in 1960, meetings of the club did not start until two years later. One highlight of the French Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s year was when some of the members traveled to Albuquerque to see a French movie. Students join the French club to gain a more thonough knowledge of French life, history, and literature. They also try to better understand the practical and cultural value of French. Foreign and French visitors have come to many of the meetings in the past year. Sue lones, Elaine McHale, Marion Mc­ Queen, and Emily Laquer tell time in French.

AFS Raises Money for ’69-’70 Student Foreign students are exposed to everything from hamburgers to mini­ skirts in their first two months in the States. Their reaetions art' often very interesting and LA exeliangers were no exceptions. One pupil tried the “Dylan” style hair cut while another enjoyed American food and girls. Besides the AFS studt'nt, three other foreign students attended FAILS this year. They include Paulo de Carvalho, from Brazil; Mohammad Nafissi, from Iran; and Raul Palou, from Argentina. Two LA students, Barbie Wilson and Guv Best, have been selected by the National Selection Committee to be sent abroad. They will hopefully leave the U.S. sometime in 1969. To earn money for next year’s ex­ changers and to get foreign students acquainted, AFS sponsored many activities. Among these were a spa­ ghetti dinner, a foreign style show, a phone directory, a play performed by students from ENMU, Christmas cards, and many bake sales.

Practice was held every Tuesday and Thursday evening and one afternoon each week. Four members of the club per­ formed during halftime at one of the biisketball games. Members of the group also traveled to Santa Fe to enter competition for the first time. Hopes are that the future years will bring more members to the club and better chances to enter competition.

To be selected for this club, a pupil must be in the top one third of his class, and those chosen are judged on their abilities in the field of journal­ ism. Quill and Scroll is the only high school journalism honor society. LA students were inducted by the Valley members from McCurdy Mission and Espanola High Schools in a Decem­ ber candlelight service. Preceeding the ceremony a potluck supper was held in which all Quill and Scroll members took part. Elsa Kunz is the only returning member from 67-68.

Pupils Edit Pegasus,Literary Magazine Editor Patsy Dickinsoii talks with Mr. Horrace Crane and Mr. Joe Phillips about printing and art problems. This year s large issue brought on many unforseen problems.

1969 Pegitsus is the largest edition ever printed. It is about 100 pages and contains entries by 86 students. Of these people, 15 are sophomores, 40 are juniors, and 32 are seniors. For a person’s work to be selected for Pegasus it must be chosen by his English teacher to be submitted. It then goes to a group of teachers who pick the items to be published. Patsy Dickinson, Pegiisus editor, and Kathy Browne, iissistant editor, have the responsibility of arranging entries in the magazine. Any illus­ trated work goes to art students in Mr. Joe Phillip’s classes. The cover is also designed in the art department. Mr. Horrace Crane and his graphic arts students take care of the printing. This year Pegasus enters its fifth year of publication.

Senior Karen Nilsson is found in the IMC reading items in her Pegasus.

Sponsor Mrs. Jean Cambell and Assistant Editor Kathy Browne discuss layouts. To complete the layouts, chosen articles are sent to the art department to be illustrated. After the illustra­ tions have been received they are scattered throughout the magazine.

These are some of the remarks one might hear around A-8 as a monthly deadline approaches. Through the efforts of its 11 staffers, the Lookout has increased its publica­ tions to nine issues instead of the eight papers published in previous years. This is possible because of the extra advertisements sold under a contract plan. This year Lookout received top AllAmerican and Medalist awards and staffers placed second in New Mexico High School Press Association writ­ ing-photography contests. Besides producing monthly papers, the staffers have gone on two field trips, to Albuquerque to newspaper, television facilities, and to Santa Fe to interview the Governor.

Hilltoppers Finish Second in District Because of recent redistricting, Los Alamos found itself in a new district in 1968. The Toppers took second in the new conference, which includes Farmington, Santa Fe, and Raton. Varsity football players kicked off the season in good form, beating Ala­ mosa and district rivals Santa Fe and Raton. After losing a close game with Roswell High, the Toppers proved size is not everything as they easily defeated a heavier Valley team. Things did not fare so well with the Toppers, though, as a big RoswellGoddard team defeated them. Hilltoppers met district opponent Farminton in the most important match of the year. Both teams had 2-0 district records, and this tilt decided the district champions who would represent District lAA in state com­ Los Alamos football mentors are Mr. Mike Burnett, Head Coach Glen Howl, and Mr. Dave Agard. petition.

Returning to winning form, the Los Alamos gridders defeated Gallup in the annual homecoming contest. But all chances for winning record disap­ peared as the Toppers dropped their last two games to Albuquerque powers, Monzano and Del Norte. The football team had a hard time obtaining a 5-5 season record, as all Hill opponents outweighed it. The squad depended on speed and a great desire to play to keep it winning. Next year’s team members promise to be much larger. If the players can combine size with this years team’s desire, they will undoubtedly have a winning season.

J.V. Aids Varsity with Backfield Men; Larry Gibbons, at the start of the year a taekle and center, carries the ball for a substantial gain against Manzano. He was moved to the backfield after other backs on the J.V. were promoted to varsity because of injuries.

Despite losing six of its eight games during the setison, the junior varsity football squad placed the emphasis on experience rather on victory. New coaches Mr. Doug Anderson and Mr. Carl Max applied the use of a platoon system in replacement of the players during the games. Five of the 15 juniors who went out for the sport were moved up to the varsity team to compensate the injury problem on the “A” squad. They were Ron Trujillo, Larry Gib­ bons, Jim Babich, Randy Fox, and Richard Bingham. Plagued by inexperience and depth, the junior varsity managed to defeat two local schools, Santa Fe and Espanola. Next year’s edition should prove to be more successful as many of the same players will be back.

Basketballers Win Invitational Midway through the 1969-68 cage season, it looked as though Los Alamos might be on its way to the Class AA State Tournament for the second straight time as it won the Highland Invitational, beating Bernalillo, 77-63, and winning 11 of the first 14 games. An upset loss to St. Mikes cost the Toppers the Capital City Tournament but they fought back for a third-place ranking. Los Alamos finished on top of the tight District lAA race, being seeded number one in the conference tourney. Wins over Espanola and Santa Fe matched rivals Los Alamos and Farm­ ington in the championships in the tournament. The Scorps defeated the L.A. team, 79-64, but this did not stop the Toppers, as they went on to state to meet Hobbs in the first game, which Los Alamos dropped, 77-59. Toppers finished the year with a 18-win and nine-loss record.

J.V. compiled a 12-8 record. During the first half of the season, play was spotty, but the team, at the middle and end of the stanza, improved, and began to play as a squad. Sophomores this year dominated action as they made up roughly twothirds of the fifteen suited up for games. The most improved players on the squad were also sophomores. Rick Lujan, Scott Marriott, and Kenny Williams got off to a slow start, from lack of experience, and then led the team to several impressive victories. The juniors on the team, after another seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience, could be the main factor in a winning season next year. J.V. this year averaged 60.7 points per game while their opponents tallied 65.6 per contest. Marriott and Wil­ liams together pulled down 11.2 rebounds per game. From the field, the Junior Toppers hit a consistent 38 per cent. At the charity line the team hit 65 per cent. Mr. Jim Higgins, coaching his last season of basketball for L.A.H.S., has had a tremendous victory-defeat record for the Toppers, winning 63 and losing 32. 124 Sports

At the end of their regular season, the swimmers headed for Alberquerque and state meet. Toppers placed in eight of eleven state finals, scoring 32 points while securing fourth place.

Although Van Hecke, Hughes, and Montoya were leaders in their re­ spective categories, it was a team effort by the starting nine—also made up of Lee Brundige, Chip Greco, Tracy Manes, Les Dufour, and Stan Smith, all seniors, and freshman Joey Pacheco—to capture the runner-up position and a nine-win, 7-loss record. Purchase of a batting cage will give next spring’s team a chance to practice during bad weather, which hampered much of this year’s practices. This season’s squad lost all but one player. Out of 12 letterman, eleven were seniors and one was a freshman. Besides having upper classmen de­ part, the baseball team lost its supe­ rior coaching staff.

Although the tennis team was able to take only six of its 13 dual matches, this season proved a suc­ cess in ways other than those shown by a win-loss record. Many juniors and sophomores gained invaluable experience playing this year. Only three court boys were lost through graduation, while six lettermen will return next year, forming a strong nucleus for what promises to be a good squad. Besides their 13 dual meets, LAHS netters participated in three tournaments. They placed third in two of them and fourth in the other. No Hill players qualified for state competition at district, but the players did finish third as a team at district. This year’s team was led by Co-Captains Craig Russell and Mike Sheinberg, both seniors.

time . . . a heartbeat: the pulsing of a lifetime or of a single glanee. motion . . . a force: the pumping of an artery or of another hand. we are afraid of time that attempts to suffocate the promises of motion. we fight off the time cancer with awkward weapons of yesterday’s excuses: too much homework; too little sleep; and “there just isn’t ever enough . . .” time and motion, never looking back, interweave continually to form a life braid. and still— if we listen closely— we can detect the time-motion heartbeat pumping into an echo-chambered infinity . . .
