In the daily routine, I step across the threshold of education 2

and become confronted by an eternity of words ... 3

Hillcrest becomes a place of self-discovery as I seek my goals in life: 4

to know a cause, to achieve in a moment with eyes focused on a distant point ... 5

I face the challenge of learning with a mature mind and devoted study ... 7

In my association with others like me, I enjoy the spirit of Youth; 8

I find my friendships and kindle lasting memories ... 9


Memories of Hillcrest become part of me; Faces stay as a fond recollection ... 11

I am the individual: 12

a part of the whole - the myriad of students with purpose and emotion ... 13


Hillcrest reflects me. 15

ACADEMICS RE LECT PROGRESS From 8:00 in the morning until 2:50 in the afternoon, five days a week. we went through the daily routine of seven periods of learning and studying. Aided by the knowledge of our teachers, we found the answer to a calculus problem or gained a better understanding of Shakespeare's \"Mac- beth.\" We gained experience in baking a chocolate cake or tuning a Ford engine to its peak performance. In our quest for education, we realized that the true method for advance- ment fell upon ourselves ... the individual. A legacy of knowledge from our teachers, combined with our own study and discovery, enabled us to complete another academic year of achievement.

ADMINISTRATION After beginning a long school day at 5:30 a.m. by arranging for substitute teachers, Mr. Jensen may I ter meet with faculty representatives to plan teacher-oriented duties, dis- cuss school regulations with student body officers, organize student-testing programs with the counselors, or work to set up a school fund-raising project. Besides all these school- time activities, Mr. Jensen is also engaged in work with the Utah Education Association and the Board of Directors of the Utah Schools Activities Association. Reflected in all his activities is a respect for students and faculty and a con- cern for better education that contributes to the success of The Year to Meet the Challenge. Joel P. Jensen Principal DelMar Schick Vice-Principal One of the busiest men at Hillcrest is DelMar Schick. Whether checking an assembly schedule or making an- nouncements over the intercom, he is never too busy to help a student obtain a work permit or talk to a student about his truancy problem. Besides being in charge of student attendance and discipline, Mr. Schick also distri- butes books and teaching aids, approves students' schedule changes, arranges transportation to school activities, and schedules regular daily transportation. In addition to all his school duties, Mr. Schick's pride in the Huskies' endeavors has strengthened the bonds be- tween students and faculty, helping to make Hillcrest an ever-greater school. 19

COUNSELOR Greeting students with a friendly smile and offering a helping hand, our counselors help- ed to maintain the emotional tone of the school at a level which allowed students to find success in their school curriculum. Whether they were busy supervising the jun- ior GATB test, helping unhappy students change their class schedule, offering special guidance to troubled individuals, or assisting college-bound seniors to prepare for the hard years ahead, our counselors displayed a pro- fesional concern toward the student body at Hillcrest. Busy checking on scholarsh1ps, Mr. Barnett puts in another varied day's work.

Programming his cards for a fmal run-through, Ken Rees attempts to correlate his answers with those of the computer. MATHEMATICS Math offered students a chance to compete in a fast changing world. Through computer science, a class introduced last year, students developed mathematical formulas, worked out their an- swers, and then programmed the information into computers at the University of Utah. Adding additional insight into the intraca- sies of math were the quadratic equations of Algeb'ra, the Patha- gorean Theorum of geometry, the angle relationships of trigono- metry, and the changing curves of calculus. An advanced place- ment program enabled students excelling in basic subjects to delve into college-oriented mathematics for two periods daily. Douglas Anderson Ronald Davis A/g.; Geom.; Sports A.P.

HOME ECONOMICS Basting the hem of a wool jumper, kneading raisin bread dough, or arranging a rose and crysanthemum centerpiece improved girls' at- titudes and capabilities in homemaking. Divided into three related units, cooking, sewing and Homeliving, the Home Economics depart- ment provided a full background for future mothers and wives. Cooking classes canned fruit and planned budgeted meals; girls in sewing spent many hours creating fashions which they themselves modeled in a Spring Fashion Show. Homeliving, a course offered exclusively to senior girls, combined a variety of subjects from cleaning floors and baking casseroles to matrimonial responsibili- ties and child psychology, in the final step toward learning success- ful management of the home.

MUSIC Although the music department was one of the smaller-staffed departments in the school, its influence reached more than forty per- cent of the entire student body or about seven hundred students. Chorus and junior choir trained students for A Cappella and chamber choir. These latter performed on television, presented programs with the Utah Youth Symphony Orchestra, and caroled at Christmas time. Students in pep band, dance band, and orchestra exchanged musical pro- grams with other schools and played at all football and basketball games.

ART In the art class students developed creative thinking by learning to handle media which expressed feelings and ideas. To develop their own personal style and technique, student artists studied brush strokes and lighting techniques of the masters, such as Micheal- angelo, Rodin, and Rembrandt. Learning to letter in pen and brush, draw in charcoal and pencil, sculpture in clay and plastics, and to make papier-mache jewelry, students enlarged their appreciation of art. Other contributing experiences were commercial aspects, including illustration, trademarks, reproduction, lettering, and fash- ion design. Innovations such as acrylic painting, mosaics, ceramics and stage design further broadened Hillcrest's art curriculum.

LANGUAGE ARTS Reflecting the art of communicating ideas through written and oral exercises, the Eng- lish, Speech, and Language Departments comprised the largest instructional area with- in the school. Strengthening the English program was the second in a series of three curriculum gu1des designed to standardize in- struction throughout the district. Unique again this year in foreign language was the teach- ing of Russian by a native of that country. Knowledge obtained in the speech and drama classes gave students the necessary exper- ience needed to win parts in the school play and school musical.

SCIENCE Human hairs were no challenge for the analytical balance, whose precision in weighing up to .0001 gram gave to the Science De- partment and its students new areas for research. Scientific equipment such as this shows the ever-growing need for interest- ed students to prepare for careers in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Also introduced this year were the climatariums which regulated humidity, temperature, and the amount of light on plants. Another new feature was the \"Physics Corner,\" a display case in the main hall, where new science projects were intro- duced and changed periodically to show the skills and ingenuity Paul J.

Contributing to this training was the Inquiring Editor, a television program involving three girls and three boys from American history classes who competed against each other to test their knowledge of current events. In addition, the Senate Youth Program, a newly organized group, enabled one student from every high school in Utah to meet at the State Capitol to learn about state and federal governments by discussing govern- ment's problems and functions.

INDUSTRIAL ARTS Seldom frequented by girls, the S-Wing of Hillcrest leads into the shop areas, where boys develop skills in the drafting, weld- ing, woodwork , and automotive fields. Working with modern tools, instruments and machinery, many students gain the necessary experience for a preliminary step leading to occupational posi- tions in industrial fields. For others, it provides the basic back- ground which may lead to advanced training in future college engineering courses. Glade Bailey Bruce Beckstead lndust. Arts Auto. Mech. Ray Davis William L.

Marching, gymnastics, archery, and the newly introduced golfing, were among the many skills taught in the girls' Physical Education Department this past year.

COOKS Arriving each morning at 7:15 a.m., the cooks began their daily task of preparing nearly six hundred hot lunches. In order to allow maximum nutrition, the \" A-Plan\", a state outline setting forth the requirements for balanced school lunches, was followed closely. Using the very latest in modern equipment, the cooks were able to speedily prepare each meal to be served in the school's crowded cafeteria during the two lunch periods.

CLERKS Playing a vital background role to insure the smooth running of a sixteen-hundred-student high school, the three clerks were kept continually busy with the selling of lunch tickets, game tickets, bus tickets, and the directing of numbers of lost students to other areas of the building. In addition to the mainstay of accounting, they distributed educational materials, answered telephones and acted as the general information bureau of the school.

CUSTODIANS Finding a custodian in the halls of Hillcrest is usually like \"finding a needle in a haystack.\" The year-round upkeep of the campus necessitates summertime watering and cutting of acres of grass while winter means the removal of tons of snow from sidewalks and the parking lot. In addition, theirs is the responsibility of preserving the beauty of the six-year-old building. With their student helpers, the handful of custodians maintain seventy-two teaching stations daily by sweeping and dusting them, as well as straightening some seventeen-hundred movable desks. Yet, each custodian helps in countless daily emergencies as they answer the familiar three buzzes over the intercom. Dale Newbold Wayne Parker William Wyker Head Gust.

SPOR s REFLEC COMPETITION From the first grid-iron battle of early autumn until the fast baseball game in spring, we followed sports with undying spirit and enthusiasm. We yelled exultantly as a Hillcrest gridder gained a vital first down against Granger, or moaned silently as a Huskie eager missed a jump-shot against the Granite Farmers. Whether we were victorious or defeated, we always supported our team with the highest in school spirit. Aided by cheerleaders, songleaders, and the pep club, we found more enthusiasm and spirit for cheering and ex- uberant yells. Another year of sports and competition, in which we tasted both victory and defeat, gave to each of us an individual reason to be proud of Hillcrest's traditions. 33

CHEERLEADERS Hillcrest's six cheerleaders were the primary pro- moters of school spirit. Throughout the year in all athletic activities, they led the student body in cheers, victory yells, and the school song. They organized pep rallies, special skits, and pep-talk announcements prior to every game. Their hours of constant practice and the ready enthusiasm they displayed in the team's victories and defeats made them an igniting spark in Hillcrest's \"Year to Meet the Challenge.\" 34

Each girl, selected by a committee, worked daily to perfect old routines and create new ones. Doing musical rou- tines rather than cheers, they performed at games and pep assemblies to help the cheerleaders arouse enthusiasm. These girls with their friendly smiles and snappy routines were a vital part of Hillcrest. 35

MARCHIONESS Laurie Andersen Verla Beckstead Colleen Brown Colleen Anderson Beverly Brady Patti Burdick What is a Marchionae? To the fifty-one girls in this year's Denise Anderson Susan Brennan Nancy Carver Marchioness Club, being a March1onae meant attendmg early morning marching practices at 7:00 a.m. each Friday to perfect their marching. Being a Marchionae meant co- operating with the cheerleaders to promote school spirit, giving a helping hand to cheer at morning pep rallies and pep assemblies, and entertaining during halftime activities. To be a Marchionae was to decorate the team members' lockers and, on special occasions, decorate their houses. Being a Marchionae meant receiving a surprise gift from your \"Pixie\" when you least expected it, being honored at the Scholarship Tea because of your A-grade point average, attending the annual slumber party held at the end of the year, and anxiously awaiting the Marchioness Spring Formal held this year at the Alpine Country Club for pep club mem- bers, lettermen, and their dates. Each girl with Hillcrest in her heart and a deep pride in her club contributed her time and efforts towards instilling pride and loyalty in the student body.
