CIRCULATION AND ADVERTISING
PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE - (with photo of AH from Armour Hill and photo of Mr. C. A. Bullock)
In this first attempt to produce a yearbook for Armour Heights School, I wish to commend all those people who have had a share in making this project a success. It should have proved to be a useful experience in your efforts to learn and grow.
As you look at this it will remind you of your associations and activities during the present school year. If the book is treasured, it should increase in value in your eyes as time passes.
It should be especially useful for those who are leaving our school to go on to some other area of endeavour.
As we read this book let us pause a moment to admire those pupils who have provided leadership in our school life by showing good character, by working well at their studies, or by doing their part in activities such as choirs, School Safety Patrol or sports. By doing so, they have earned our admiration and, more important, have set a fine example for others to follow.

SENIOR SHOT PUT
Every year the junior and senior tumblers put on a show for their parents. They work very hard and it is always worth their while.
This year it was on Mary 9th. It was a big success and had from front-ward rolls to harder stunts like sommer-salts in midair. Next year the show may have more people to watch it because of the new gym.
Mr. Gilders, assisted by Miss Huggins and Mr. Wadill, organized a tumbling club for the pupils of Armour heights, excepting the two lowest grades. The club consists of two main groups, juniors and seniors. Next year, the two most advanced members, Gary Payne and Pete Clark, won't be with the group. They have agreed to visit us occasionally and show some of the harder stunts which they will learn in high school.
They are: Patty Enborg, Robert Lewis, Gail Scott, Anne Banks, Moird Farr Fara MacLaggan, Sjerri Andrews, Sam Watson, Bobby Williams, David Bestard, Scott Osborn, Steve Demard, Duane Deline, Charley Fleetwood, Matty Montgomery, Philip Gardener, Wendy McCue, Brenda Suggit, Kim Mills, Tim McEwen, Andrew Knowles, Bobby Cahsen, Gorden Lansmen, Robert Dafoe, Rhonda Quirt, Barbara Ducharm, Denice Cooper, Babby Miller Sylvia Weir , Barb Slatcher, Susan Calderwood, and Paul Ernshaw.

THE HUNTER AND THE
One day in the fall a hunter went through the forest to shoot some animals. He
walked and walked until he spotted some grouse. Slowly but quietly he crept up. Suddenly he shot and left the grouse lying on the ground. He must have felt proud that he had shot the bird. He plucked one of the birds feathers and put it in his hat to show he was a hunter. When spring came he was ready to hunt again. He walked until he came to a clearing. He saw a doe and a buck. When he was just about to shoot he noticed something. It was a new born fawn. He didn't have the heart to shoot. Then he took out the feather and put a flower in his hat to show he was a friend of the forest and not an enemy.
BOBBY RUNS AWAY
"Mother, may I go out and play?"
"No you may not!"
"Then may I play guns in here?"
"No you may not!"
"Then may I go upstairs?"
"No you can't!"
"Boy, I can't do anything around here. I'm going to run away. I'll go as a cowboy and take with me my clothes, toys, some bread, butter, a pan, sleeping bag and good books. Oh, and I'll also take my dog!"
Bobby left the house the next morning at to get an early start. He was scowling out as he marched off pulling his wagonful of supplies. He looked like a very unhappy cowboy. In three days he returned home. Since his parents had missed him greatly, he never heard "no" anymore.
What is White?
White is my bed all shiney and bright,
I sleep like a queen in it every night.
What is blue?
I am blue when I'm bad,
And that makes me very sad.
What is black?
Black is the thunder in the night,
And it gives me quite a fright.
What is gold?
My little brother's hair is gold,
And he is only five years old.
What is gray?
The sky can be gray,
On a very rainy day.
What is green?
Green is the colour of the leaves,
That blow and rustle in the breeze.
What is brown?
My Father's bass is brown,
And when he practices his music,
We wish he would leave town.
My kitten makes no noise at all,
Because she walks on tippy toes,
And that is why I have to say
Here little kitten every day.
A DOLLAR BILL
"Hello!" I am a dollar bill, not an ordinary dollar bill because I went through different things from most dollar bills and here is my story.
I was born with a few of my friends, who are also dollar
bills, in a little shack in the outskirts of
One day my producer picked me up and shoved me into his pocket.
We walked for a while until we came to a store. Here, he pulled me out to buy a pack of cigarettes. I felt proud because this was my first job. To my amazement, the cashier didn't accept me and my producer picked me up and started to run, with two fellows dressed in blue following close behind. We managed to divert them and headed back to the shack.
When I told my friends, (the other bulls), they turned quite worried because they looked exactly like me. We sat and chatted until we came to a conclusion, "We were counterfeit."
The next few moments happened like lightning. We heard whistles blowing just as the door crashed open and five men in blue rushed in. They grabbed our producer and carried us away.
Now we sit and mourn as the fire blazes in front of us. My friends March in one by one, with me to come. I feel like a juvenile delinquent waiting to be punished. Death is too horrible when to think I could have helped so many poor people.

A LONELY FEELING
It was a very dark, cold and dreary evening. It was raining hard and the wind was blowing steadily. As I walked down the old deserted alley I noticed a huge grey mouldering wall all covered with vines. I had the loneliest feeling in me. Every time there was a gust of wind the dead leaves fell to the ground and circled about my feet. All through the old buildings the wind whistled. Off in the distance I heard the lonely cry of a cat. It made me feel as if I was in a ghost town on that cold, dark and dreary evening.
FEAR FOLLOWS US
Fear is one of the greatest emotions, in our life. From the time we take our first step, right up to the time we begin our career, fear disturbs, and worries us. There were the times we had a restless night of sleep, because we dreamt of strange animals pursuing us, and of haunting spirits floating into the darkness of our unlighted rooms. When we grow up, and got over our childish dreams, the problem of exam papers, and the thought of venturing into the new world approached us. Then too, fear comes in other ways, such as the war, and the country you love being shattered to pieces. Yes, fear will follow us right up to the day we die, because it is part of our life.
THE TWO KITTENS
Once upon a time, there were two kittens. The owner of the kittens name was Elisabeth. One day Elisabeth let the kittens out to play in the barn and they got all tangled up in the wool. Then Elisabeth came and untangled them.
February is the month for fun,
To play in the snow, to play in the sun
February is the month for so much fun.
When I was watching the parade I saw a clown. His pants kept failing down. It was very funny. I also saw an ambulance and a steam engine that was saying choo-choo. It was fun.
The pretty fowers, red, blue and white I love flowers,
They are so bright.
When Big John was only eight years old, he was not like all the other boys, he was big for his age, 300 feet tall and still growing.
Well, one day after breakfast Big John decided. to play hooky. He looked all over for a place to play around until school closed that afternoon.
Big John decided to go swimming, so he swam across the
All this time Big John was swimming in his clothes and it was getting pretty late, so he took them of to dry.
He laid his boats where
While Big John was waiting, he heard the school bell ringing, it was time to-get-a-move-on.
In his haste John forgot one of his boots. To this day
you can still see it there, it is now the country of

The ultramarine coloured water swirled around us in little waves. The surfing slurping, colourful water, slashed and lapped on the sandy beach. The water seemed cool and refreshing against the warm, humid July afternoon. Out in the middle of the lake, the sea-blue water was as calm as a sleeping kitten. The suns' rays danced on the top of the colourful water, making glittering tints on top of the spray.
THE MAN AND HIS WIFE
A man lay low by the waters edge,
He made his oath and he made his pledge;
Never again to seek for his wife;
But the next day bout , she was stabbed by a knife.
He swore on the bible it wasn't his fault,
The murder was done as a stabbing result.
His wife looked more peaceful than she'd been in years,
But he couldn't see much for the blur of his tears.
But in days to come as he surely would find;
A new girl would come and bring peace to his mind,
He buried his wife the very next day,
His heart full of sorrow and soul with dismay.
DEATH IN THE FAMILY
It was far from the usual gay atmosphere of a Sunday morning that everyone awoke to. Even the weather seemed to suit the occasion and sense our very mood. Yes, it would be another long hard day of strain and weariness. I could see it in mothers face which looked pale and drawn; in fathers naturally gay face, was a disturbing uneasy look. The smallest member of the family, although hardly old enough, seemed also to sense the meaning of the situation and was moody and cranky.
It all had happened so suddenly! Things had started to look bad at the shop, where Dad worked. First, business was slack, then Dad suddenly had had a relapse of pneumonia and since he could not do his job in the hospital, what was the use of paying salary to hospitalized employees at a time like this. Dad was fired. Then my grandfather who had been boarding with us, turned on us, said he wasn't receiving good enough meals for the board. We kids were lucky to get a hot meal on Sundays, and he talks! My oldest brother, whom I had worried about, staying awake at nights, restlessly hoping against hope the fate which just had befallen him.... he was up in court for juvenile delinquency!
Just at the very time that a family in our shoes should stick together, ours fell apart. That precious family unity had died!
The ring goes up.
The flag goes down
He dumps the clutch
And he leaves the ground.
He hits the traps
The double white lines
That is where
They clock the times.
The risks they take
In the cars they make
Trusting on the engines
To take them down the line.

At Christmas our class put on two plays, The Sulky Brownies and Mother Goose's Christmas Dinner.
A very small boy arrived home from his first day at school to announce he was not going back. He said "I can't reed, can't write and they won't even let me talk, so what's the use."

ROOM 6 Grade 2
When we went to Fairyland we had elide on the train and we had a Robin Hood hat. We had a drink of pop, something to eat and some candy that was sticky.
After we saw Santa we went to see the fairy queen and the rocky mountains.
Then we went to see Charlie Brown and then we went on the slide. We then went to see the boats. We went up Snoopy, the escalator to see a puppet show.
On the way to Fairyland Wayne got his finger caught in-the seat in the bus. On the street we sew some reindeer and a slide. Some people got sick on the way.
We sew the merry-go-round and you sew it too, did you not? We saw kind old King of the North.
ART IN MISS LUMB'S ROOM
We do art every Wednesdey. We made pictures of us going to the Library. In the fall we made pictures of the leaves falling off the trees. We made pictures of us playing in the snow. We even made pictures of us helping our mother. We made hats with flowers on top of them. We made pictures of cats and we mixed colors together to make out cats. We made texture pictures. We have had fun.
We went to Adam Scott with Mrs. Johnson. We went on Saturday morning at . Six people went with Mrs. Johnson and six people went with Mrs. Clements. We had to wait to go on the stage because two men were talking for a long while. We did a little math. We measured bottles with water in them. At the last we did a paper, and we did not get our paper back. When it was time to go home we got a book for being good on the stage.

OUR TOY DISPLAY
We had a toy display. In our display we had vehicles. The
vehicle table are boys things. Some vehicles have
motors and some don't. Also we had old fashioned toys. Old fashion toys are
from long ago. We also had a doll table. At the doll table we had all sorts of
dolls like, dolls that talk, dolls that walk and dolls that do both. There were
Japanese dolls and Chinese dolls and ordinary dolls and dolls that cry. Also
there were toys from other lands, like toys from
Gloria McDonald Room 3

Susan MacLaggan yells a lot,
Even when she's on the pot.
She rants and raves at the slightest thing,
But the thing she can really do Is sing.
Barry Gerolamy is his name,
Getting fatter is his aim.
Charlene White is really swell,

Even though she is quite tall
She can really be a ball.
Mr. Huffman is quite nice,
ALMOST as nice as sugar and spice!!!
I know a boy who's name is McCack,

Danny Sharp is a real brain.
Oh no! Not in the 80's again!
Debbie Wildman is really swingin',
That's why she is always singin.
She has a voice just like a bird,
And is seldom never heard.
Barbara Woodcock is a teat,
That is why she is so sweet,
Barbara Woodcock likes Doug Fisher,
But he is to shy to kiss her!!!
Kim Banks is very goad at art,
While at math she is equally smart.
If she keeps playing baseball that way,
She'll be a professional some day.
Pamela Abbot came third in the race,
Without her glasses on her face.
