nnifiCHE HIGH SCHOOL
rPHREE YEARS of work and play three years of
friendship with many whom we would not have
met had it not been for the mass evacuation from the
Pacific Coastthree years of school life where we have
learned to be useful in war and good citizens in peace
to our country, the United States.
Yes, in these three years we have strived to reach
the high goal of being forward lookers and thinkers,
sometimes slipping, but always looking toward that aim.
Within the covers of this year book, we bring to you
our life of the past year in work and play, in striving
to be "Onlookers" into tomorrow's world.
We, the students of Amache, dedicate this book to all our
friends in the armed services who are not only fighting and
dying for victory, but also for world peace and understanding.
TO THE STUDENTS of the Amache High School; to the Advisory School
Board; to school officials, teachers, janitors and yardmen; to parents of
school children and to residents and organizations interested in the school,
I extend my thanks for your interest and cooperation. This is the last school
year for Amache. That is as it should be. You and your boys and. girls can
now go out from Amache to any desired place in the United States. There are
no strings on this graduation.
To the Class of 1945, Amache High School, greetings! You and the other
students have had an opportunity to advance in your school work, limited only
by your own application to work and study. For you during your life in the
Center the world has not stood still. I wish you a successful future; may you
continue your education, and may you lead worthy and useful lives as you
take your places in America among Americans. That you keep your faces
ever to the front, and your feet upon a rising road is the sincere wish of your
friend, the Project Director.
SEPTEMBER, 1942'1 10,00Qjpeople, Japanese-Amencans, their parents and friends,
started a unique history-making chapter in the story of their lives. These evacuees
as they were called, found themselves stranded on barren desolate stretches of America;
previously inhabited only by-desert denizens and covered with sage brush. "Relocation
centers" was the name attacfied to tries places.
One of these centers was established in southeastern Colorado and named
"Amache." The first inhabitants of tm&^jfisakeshift community were transferred from
the Merced and Santa Anita assembly cenfe^^qter Tuleans and Jeromites also became
residents of this community.
Realizing the need of establishing and mairSqA^^jt<^s many institutions of "normal
living as possible, the center administration hec^dtfJ^Ar^'rrdley in comunction with
evacuees immediately began to Sft-up facilities Existing demands. One of
the first things considered was the sbhool system.
We shall probably never know br'-realize the many difffcu^SjSrdjp^rplexing prob-
lems which confronted our educational leaders, Mr. Terry and, MrO^y.. However, we
may be gratified that through their tireless efforts, the doors ohgur re flung
open to waiting students in slightly mqresthan^one month after4$ie -op^sfl^ of the
project. It's true that rooms crowded with crude hurriedly-constructed jfelis and
benches, with poor heating and ventilating sygiems, and walls thro^h^^itih dust
seeped on windy days are humble and inq^quaillNfqcilities for modeilgjpfeation.
And yet the important and significant thing wtlj&dhe faaffltgt both teachers aftd
had the right and wholesome spirit of learning!
spite of physical limitations. This alone probak
book learning ever did.
As time passed, additions and improvements we3l

thus we were afforded untold opportunities to expand
attitudes toward the making of better qualified citizens,

Another important thing' which we have learned is living without desired and
convenient, articles of everyday living which we once took for granted. A fuller appre-
ciation-bf these physical and also mental gifts is now ours.
i#?'*Lastly, we learned of technical subjects such as mathematics and sciences, these
things aided those interested in specialized fields as future vocations.
The accumulation of these traits and skill should greatly aid in making belter
Americans in a greater America and a greater world.

THE smooth functioning of an educational system is dependent upon numer-
ous people and groups who perform their duties quietly and without recog-
nition. And yet.it is they who play an important part in planning and formulating
school policies and functions.
One such group in our midst was the Amache Advisory Board which was
organized in January, 1943. It was an integral part of the regular administrative
program of the War Relocation Authority. Its function was purely advisory in
nature, as its name implies, and met, upon call, with our Superintendent of
Education, Dr. Garrison, and our principal, Mr. Walther. Discussions relating to
all phases of educational activities were considered at such meetings.
The members of this, board were appointed by our Project Director, Mr.
Lindley, and are all residents of our community. They were Dr. Takashi Terami,
President; Mr. Tokuyoshi Kawasaki, Mrs. Alice Ohama, Mr. Seijiro Okuno, and
Mr. Robbin Kaneko.
The entire student body of Amache High School as well as the other citizens
of our community may well bow their heads in deep and humble gratitude
and appreciation to this group of people who have wholeheartedly and unself-
ishly contributed their time and effort to better our school. Through their interest
in us we.have been afforded many opportunities to gain a wider knowledge and
a richer understanding of the art of living amid people of a thousand different
ways of thinking.
THIS is the last edition of the "Onlooker." Next year
we will be living in many different places doing
many different things. Teachers will be working in
other schools. These halls and classrooms will be cold,
dusty, and vacant. Amache High School will exist only
in the files of some impersonal government agency and
in our memories.
Records are dead, inanimate things, but memories are
alive and ever growing. They are the sum, the total, of
experience. We who have guided your school experi-
ences here have tried to direct you into opportunities
for fun. We hope you have enjoyed them. More im-
portant, we have tried to help you become the master
of the basic tools of learning; to develop in you con-
structive attitudes toward life and living with others;
to develop critical, honest habits of thinking.
We sincerely hope that wherever you go, whatever
you do, your memories of Amache High School will be
happy ones and that your experiences will be good
tools, intelligently used, in building happy, useful lives.
In your living Amache High School will also live.
4 m me/M
THREE YEARS ago your lives and plans were sud-
denly interrupted, and as a consequence Amache
High School came into being. It is my sincere hope that
here your hopes and dreams have been reborn, and
that you have gained the courage, faith and deter-
mination that will help you build new tomorrows.
To me our experiences together will always be a
vivid and treasured memory. I have appreciated your
willingness to study, your unfailing cheerfulness, your
quiet courtesy and your friendship.
It was my privilege to help plan this school. I re-
member its opening days, its first growing pains in 8H
block, our excitement at moving into America's "most
talked of" high school building and especially of its
125 sons and daughters who are fighting for our country
on the battlefields of the world.
Soon its doors will close. On my lips and in my heart,
as I watch you leave after our final day of school, will
be the old Hebrew prayer, "Mizpah," God be with you
'till we meet again.
NEXT YEAR Amache High School will be an empty building
on a sand hill. Whether it will be remembered or not
depends on the accomplishments of the people who have at-
tended it. We like to think that, in spite of the handicaps inherent
in this unusual situation, we have together, teachers and stu-
dents, developed and maintained an American high school in
the best American tradition.
You who go out from us now into new and challenging
situations will provide the measure of whether or not all of us
have been successful in working together toward realizing the
common goals of individual growth and social responsibility.
You will think often of this hill, of friendships formed, of
good times realized, of teachers who influenced you. It is our
hope that in the coming years it will be proved that you who
attended school here have learned much which will be instru-
mental in developing a high type of citizenship for use in a
world which will need you.

AS I sit writing this message, I can see from my window the
dry, barren sands of Amache and the bleak, drab rows of
barracks homes. Since September, 1942, when most of us came
to Amache, there has been little improvement in our physical
surroundings. Most of us still live in the one room to which
we were assigned the day we arrived. True, we do have a few
trees, a lawn or two, and a high school building, but on the
whole, Amache is the same dust-covered prairie town it was
A bell rings, the scene is no longer bleak and discourag-
ing. The halls are thronged with laughing groups of students
eagerly talking, radiant and alive. I marvel at the change in
ypu since you came to Amache. How you have grown not only
in knowledge but in spiritual and moral qualities! Most of you,
because you have the courage of your fighting brothers, have
learned to live and grow and be happy under sometimes trying
conditions. Perspectives are becoming focused; thinking is
being broadened; sympathies are being extended to those who
Soon we will tell each other goodbye and will leave to
make our homes in widely scattered parts of the country. Be-
cause I have watched you develop radiant and attractive per-
sonalities at Amache, I know that wherever you go you can
learn to live happily and in such a way as to win many, many
I will not forget the time which I spent here nor will 1 forget
you as individuals. May you have much happiness and a long
and useful life.

We, the Associated Student Body of Amache Senior High School, had the
privilege of setting up our own student government. Our student governing
body was known as the Student Council. It is composed of the student body
cabinet and representatives from each English-Social Studies class.
The Student Council with the help of its sponsor, Miss Lewis, efficiently
served the students whom it represented. With the cabinet acting as an
executive committee to handle emergencies, it did a great deal towards pro-
moting the general welfare of the students. It spent many hours meeting after
school discussing problems which confronted students. During the first semester,
the constitution was revised and permanent acting committees were set up to
handle problems concerning athletics, awards, social events, the charting of
clubs, and other such services.
1st rowS. Hashimoto, E. Hinoki.
Student government played an important part in the development of lead-
ership and a feeling of self government among the Junior High students. The
Junior High Student Council closely followed the pattern of the Senior High
Council in its membership and duties.
The first semester group was actively led by George Hatamiya, President;
Hideo Karatsu, Boys' Vice President; Karumo Hamahashi, Girls' Vice President;
Terumi Uyesugi, Secretary; Marion Yoshiwara, Treasurer. The second semester
group, which assembled in February, was equally well served by the new
student body officers: Tsuyoshi Yamauchi, President; Joe Maruyama, Boys'
Vice President; Sumiko Hashimoto, Secretary; and Earsei Hinoki, Treasurer.
This group owed much of its success to its advisor, Miss Beery, who
willingly gave them advice in discussions and solutions of many perplexing
problems which confronted them.

With commencement exercises over, the high and mighty Seniors can look back
through their last year in Amache with pride and have the satisfaction of knowing theirs
was a job well done.
With the first semester cabinet consisting of Calvert Kitazumi, President; Edna Nimura,
Vice President; Aster Fujikawa, Secretary, and Louie Watanabe, Treasurer, the Senior
Class planned and promoted numerous activities.
None of them will ever forget the enjoyable time they had at their all-Senior get
together nor the colorful Mid-Term Prom held in honor of the January graduates.
The second semester found an almost new cabinet consisting of Cal as President;
Mits Sumada, Vice President; Namiko Ota, Secretary, and Joe Hamade, Treasurer.
In April, the Seniors presented a delightful comedy "Spring Fever" which was a
huge success. Then came the Senior Banquet, sooner than expected. And when "ditch
day" rolled around, they knew it would be their last activity of the year, so with this in
mind, the day was spent on the sunny banks of the Arkansas in an atmosphere of
freedom and gaiety, a day which they will always remember.
Although the Seniors were very busy with their class activities, they contributed a
great deal towards other school activities.
With parting words they say, "We, the Seniors of '45, really enjoyed working with the
student body and extend our sincerest and deepest appreciation to our advisor, Mrs.
Katherine Stegner, who encouraged and spurred the class towards its success."

"Future Seniors," the Junior Class climaxed its activities in the month of
June, the end of Amache High's last school year. A social calendar complete
in every detail made the year successful. Many Amache High Juniors will
vividly recall our social affairs when they are Seniors in schools all over the
nation beyond the barbed wires next yearthat day at the center farm harvest-
ing valuable crops in answer to the needy call of manpower, and the many
other significant things that meant school life for the class.
President Masashi Itano was ably assisted by Harry Fujihara, Vice Presi-
dent; Cookie Takano, Secretary; and Justine Sekiyama, Treasurer, to form the
executive board. The class chose red and white as its class colors.
Under the sponsorship of Melvin P. McGovern, it boasted both "brains" and
"personality plus." It had "brainy" Junior Quiz Kids that took the top two
honors in both Senior High Quiz Kid Programs. Not to be outclassed in sports,
Junior athletes showed outstanding ability in every field of school competition.
Topping the class social calendar was the Junior-Senior Prom. Also on the
social side was the strictly Junior Dance in March.
Such were the highlights of the Junior Class this year. The last year in
Amache will be remembered by every Junior as one of his best years.

When our high school doors opened in the year of 1943, we were only
poor 'freshies" admitted to the ways of the higher institution of learning. This
year as Sophomores we boast of our good spirit and class activities.
Heading the class were Minoru Tonai, President; Roy Ito, Vice President;
June Sato, Secretary, and Sumiya Nakai, Treasurer. During the second semester
Mamoru Furuya, Roy Ito, Miwako Karatsu, and Sumiya Nakai were elected to
fill the offices, respectively. Our advisor was Mrs. Margaret Hopcraft.
Carrying the class motto, "Looking Ahead," we went to work energetically.
Our first event was an enjoyable farewell picnic in honor of Miss Catherine
Ludy at the Amache Bowl. How well we remember the day we participated
at the farm. Because of our fine cooperation, it has been reported that we
harvested the most potatoes.
Many of the Sophomores were members of the Glee Clubs. Then, too, we
have many boys who took active parts in sports.
As the year progressed we discovered many outstanding students in the
scholastic field. "Genius" May Yasumura and Joe Wada represented the class
in the "Quiz Kids" program and June Sato smiled for the sophomores as at-
tendant at the Royal Ball.
The highlight of the class was the unforgettable "Sophomore Hop" with
Min Tonai as the Master of Ceremonies.

pionship. With the star-studded line up that the Seniors had, the
championship was theirs from the start.

The classy clicking, fast moving, brain exercising Globe Trotters team
bowled over all the other teams in the league with a single sweep. Their
ability in basketball and in showmanship always gave the spectators a thrill.
They were predicted champs from the beginning.

Seventy-five eager charter members, with their aim of
developing a good school spirit in Amache High School,
organized the Boosters Club on October 4, 1944, under
the sponsorship of Miss Marguerite Loeffler.
The cabinet members were: President, Edna Nimura;
Vice President, Rumi Tonai; Secretary, Aster Fujikawa;
Treasurer, Justine Sekiyama; Historian, Louise Sasano.
The Boosters Club girls have made many showings
of their well prepared stunts and drills at our school
football and basketball games.
In November, 1944, an assembly was sponsored for
the students of Amache High, introducing the song
leaders, Grace Yamaguchi, June Sato, and Peggy
Yuasa; yell leaders Ikuko Takano, Rumi Tonai, and
Shigeko Hamaoka; flag drillers, Virgie Okumura, Set-
sumi Saito, and Loretta Kochi; majorettes, Lily Inouye,
Mary Shoji, and Lucy Kishi.
One of the outstanding socials sponsored by this
organization was the "Pigskin Frolic" in honor of the
Amache High football team.
We are sure that the Boosters Club has shown its
ability, and we are all proud of this group.

With anxiety to win as well as good sportsmanship in mind, the ambitious
Junior High girls joined the volleyball tournament this season. The six teams:
Dashlighters, Elo-ettes, Flasherettes, Jokers, Sakos, and S. O. S., played their
exciting games before school and Saturday afternoons. The rugged Dash-
lighters with victory over five teams were the champs with Elo-ettes following
with four wins and one loss.
We give credit to the Flasherettes consisting of 7th grade girls who tried
their very best.
Elo-ettes named themselves very
originally, taking their captain's first
name, Eloise Wada. The team itself
was energetic and cooperative.
Alice Watanabe led the team with
43 points in 6 games followed by
Captain Eloise Wada with 41 points.

The mighty Dashlighters came through with-
out a single loss in 5 tries. With plenty of co-
operation and sportsmanship, they were led by

Among the rugged girls, Happy Taketa led
the service points of 51 in 6 games followed by
Chiyoko Shimono with 28 service points.

Made up solely of inexperienced journalism students, the ONLOOKER staff has
endeavored to present a clear concise picture of our school. We have used the talent
and abilities of each to the best possible advantage in our efforts to publish this volume
of the ONLOOKER.
However, we would never have realized our desires had we not had the help and
constructive criticisms of many students and teachers. To them, who will not receive the
recognition they so rightfully deserve, the entire staff and its advisor, Miss Rosalind Walls,
wish to express their sincere appreciation and thanks.
One of the most successful dances of the school year was sponsored by this group.
On the night of March 10, the Annual Queen, Lucy Nakano, and her four attendants, June
Sato, Asano Kasai, Yoshiko Oda, and Fumi Sotomura, were revealed to a large throng
of dancers at the colorful Royal Ball held in the auditorium.

Though the staff was large, at times it seemed not large enough, for as usual, the very
hard workers were in the minority. The success of the ONLOOKER was due largely to the
several students who gave all their spare time working into the' dark hours of the night to
beat the deadlineMitsue Iwata, who did much more than her share willingly; George
Yonemura, whose valuable assistance was measureless; Tad Sugimoto, who gave un-
tiring help; Min Hamatani and Min Ito, Photographers, to whom a great deal of credit is
due for a thankless but important job; Ward and Pat Taketa, Masashi Itano, and Eddie
Kubota, on whose shoulders rested a great majority of the work and to whom the beautiful
artistic touches are due; and last but not least, Miss Rosalind Walls, the advisor, whose
supervision and helpful suggestions gave us the encouragement we needed. To these, and
many others who will not receive due credit, we of the annual staff owe our appreciation.

Thirteen would-be journalists in September without an inkling of how to
put out a paperthis was the raw material from which a seasoned December
IT staff developed. It took four weeks for the struggling novices to publish their
first issue, which was greeted with both Hallelujias and razberries by the student
body. In time, the staff became a well-organized body of journalists who put
out the IT regularly, every two weeks. Their crowning efforts were a colorful
Christmas edition and a Senior Class issue which featured Amache alumni
in the armed services.
