Olsons Boys Make It Two In A Row. Last Year In Review A Glimpse At To begin with, dear old Y High opened its doors to new and old alike on September 13 It was difficult to try to predict what kind of a year we were going to have, but the Get Acquainted Party gave us some idea. We broke even in the football season by winning four games and losing four games. The coaches, Ovsen Dixon and Rex Olson, and the lettermen made these winning games possible. A gay time was had at the first girls' choice dance of the year on Sadie Hawkins Day. Plastic marriage rings were given each of the couples that attended the dance. Of course the Junior Prom and Senior Hop cannot be passed by because these were two of the most eventful dances of the year. The sophomore put themselves into the limelight by holding a sophomore week of fun including two class parties, a breakfast, an assembly, and a dance. This proved to be one of the most publicized weeks of the year. B. Y. High just wouldn't seem herself with the various club sponsored socials such as the Thespian Ball, Sports The B.Y.U. High school is again looking forward to another successful year in athletics. Last year the Wildcats made one of the finest showings of any high school in the state. The Cats rated high in Region III football play, and they captured the State Basketball crown for the second consecutive year. Harold Christensen was rated all state, with Jae Ballif and Tom Karren on the second team. To prove that the B. Y. High really produces outstanding athletics, Harold Christensen was chosen one of the 24 best high school basketball players in the nation. This enabled him to compete all star game in the North-Sout- h at Murray, Kentucky, this summer. The Y High baseball team won Region III first place honors to add another accomplishment to the school. The tennis team again put the Y High into state competition just as they have done in the past years. Coach Owen Dixon plans to start football practice on September 1st. New suits will be used this season. All boys, tenth grade and up, are invited to try their luck at football to fill positions left by last years graduating seniors. Coach Rex Olson will also need new players in his basketball and baseball lineups. the Notre Maison Sweetheart Dance, the Lettermens Dance, and the Mardi Gras. Of course there were others, but it would take many more words to tell about them. B. Y. High, after winning one Class B championship, had high hopes of winning their second gold trophy and they did. We hope they go far in their games this year, and with the coaches to help them, we feel Student Government 4 the students and faculty of Brigham Young University High School, believe that student participation in the government of a high school is an extremely important We, sure they will. made another enjoyable all. We went to Lagoon again for the second time in as many years, and it seems to get more fun every time we go. Heres hoping we go again this year. Well, white seemed to be lucky in the elections, as the White Party proved by capturing all the offices in the student bod$b ' The assemblies were grand as usual. The many musical and traveling shows and, of course, those put on by our own students, were a delight to all of us. Tears and congratulations were seen at the graduation exercises, but, of course, we cant keep all the seniors so we let them go with wishes of luck from all of us. Well, another wonderful year has passed at Y High with many recognitions given to us. We hope that the year 1950 will be as eventful and as happy as the year 1949. BE SURE TO SEE II. I HIGH VS.

High School Traditions One of the greatest traditions of the friendly, democratic and informal spirit of the student and instructor. If you have any problems, personal or school, your principal or teacher will be only too glad to help you solve them. The school sponsors many social traditions such as the ice skating . party held on Utah Lake for the senior and junior high and the annual Y Day held with the college. This is a day for whitewashing the Y and cleaning the campus, plus an afternoon of sports and activities. Senior Sluff Day is another tradition of B.Y.U. High. On this day the seniors usually go swimming. One of the biggest social traditions the school sponsors is the annual school Swimming Party. This special party is usually held at Lagoon. Besides the parties sponsored by theschool, there are many sponsored by various clubs and classes, such as the Fauvine Annual Dinner Dance, the Thespian New Year's B.Y.U. High is Ball, 3 1903-191- method of developing good citizenship. The most important function of the school is to develop citizens who understand democracy and who are loyal to democratic principles. We believe that a student government should be representative of all groups and grades in the high school and should create a sense of equality among students. We believe that it should plan, initiate and coordinate all school activities, and should manage and account for certain student funds. We believe it should be endowed with the unique function of a liaison body between students and faculty. We believe that student government should assume leadership in setting up and encouraging and maintaining desirable conduct in the school buildings and on the campus. We believe that student govern- ment should create a feeling of belonging in all students through an extra curricular program of socials, dances, clubs, dramatics, games, etc. We believe that student government should stimulate and develop a healthy school spirit and a sense of fair play. We believe that student government should encourage scholarship, courtesy, and honesty among the Lettermens Invitational Semi-Form- al Dance, Senior Hop, Junior Prom, Sophomore Ball, and Freshman Frolic, plus many other won- derful activities. Every schools traditions are what the students make them, and we are sure the students that come to Y high this year will uphold the high standards and ideals of this school.
