Mr. T. Stanley Warburton, Principal and District Superintendent, has carried
Acalanes through another successful school year despite the many difficulties
and inconveniences of war. One problem was the securing of school supplies,
which were obtainable in diminishing quantities and which required war-time
An interesting and unprecedented feature was added this year to the school
calendar. lt gave students an opportunity to see and understand the operation
of the school from points of view other than that of students. For a full day during
Public Schools' Week, students assumed entire responsibility, they acted as
members of the Board of Trustees, District Superintendent, Boys' and Girls' Coun-
selors, School Secretary, and instructors.
Showing full faith in the future expansion of
Acalanes, the Board of Trustees authorized the pur- 1. STANLEY wARsuRroN

MISS PHYLUS PETERSEN
The Acalanes Union High School is made up of instructors, all proficient in
their respective fields. Many cf our instructors were members of honorary and
professional societies while they were studying at colleqe.
The instructors at Acalanes are regarded by their students as friends rather
than as mere "teachers"
Several members of the Faculty are now in the service of their country in the
Army and Navy. Instructors who have joined in the active fight for freedom are:
Miss Veronica C. Cowan
Mr. Iohn S. Hopkins
Mr. Erwin W. Mattson
Mr. Martin O. Rahout
Mr. Leland S. Russell

lf only aged Mount Diablo could break its silence and tell
us of the romance and pageantry it has seen, we should know
much more of our land's glorious past. The aged mountain
would tell us of the land's earliest known inhabitants, the ln-
dians. They lived in small villages called rancherias and
roamed the hills and valleys for food since they did not know
the art of planting and growing. Because of the mild climate,
they wore very little clothing, the men went naked and the
women wore small skirts of grass or deerskin. Their chief
pleasures were singing and dancing: these played an important
part in their religion. The men, wearing headdresses, danced
while the Women, swaying their bodies, kept time. Now, large
piles of sea shells, in which many old relics have been found,
are the only traces left by these Indians, who moved into the
wilderness soon after the Spaniards entered the area.

The close of the year proved an hectic
time for all Seniors. The Senior play, grad-

at Acalanes with hidden feelings of regret

Joyce Kalas, Secretary
The Iunior Class was awarded a plaque by
the Student Body as first prize for surpassing the
other classes in the School Yell Contest.
The transportation shortage due to the war
has made social activities very difficult for the
luniors this year. ln spite of this and many other
war-time difficulties this class has been very
active. Their social events included two dances:
"A Little Bit of Heaven" and the Iunior Prom,
The ayrn was cleverly decorated in an Indian
therne for the latter dance,
Clirnaxinq the year the luniors gave the
Seniors a graduation present in the forrn of the
annual Iunior-Senior Banquet.

Members ot the Sophomore Class greatly
aided Mr. Elmo Heard in the establishment and
maintenance of an hydroponic garden. This
type ot garden introduces a new phase in agri-
culturew-the raising of crops in a liquid supply-
ing the necessary nutrition for plant growth.
Acalanes is one ot the first schools in the coun-
try to experiment in this new type of agriculture.
At the beginning of l943, the Sophomores
gave a barn dance for the entertainment of the
entire Student Body. The Sophomore and Fresh-
man classes combined their meetings in the
gym and held dances alter these eighth period
During the basketball season, a game was
held between these two classes which ended
with a Sophomore victory and a score of 34 to 4.

FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS

Budd Miller, President
Bob Schroder, Vice President
The Freshman class is the largest in the history
ot Acalanes, and its field of activity has been ex-
tensive, two dances, a "Get Acquaintedn dance
and the Freshman Frolic.
The Freshmen sponsored a large scrap drive
encompassing the Whole school district from
Walnut Creek to Orinda. This group was also
behind the Victory Food Survey, organized tor
the purpose of locating and listing various
places where seeds, plants, gardening tools and
machinery could be rented or procured. This
survey also located land which could be rented
for the purpose of raising Victory Gardens.
Some of the Freshmen social studies groups
raised Vegetables on a plot of school ground.
Half of the produce went to the Cafeteria and half
to the students who helped raise the crops.
An interesting accomplishment of the Fresh-
man class was the winning of second place in
the Iefferson Oratorical Contest by Dorothy

Soon after the Spaniards iirst sailed into San Francisco Bay
in l769, their explorers, notably Pedro Fages and Iuan Bautista
de Anza, led expeditions into the region east oi the Bay. They
were followed loy the padres who attempted to convert the ln-
dians. The padres succeeded in converting them, but the indians
were not used to the white rnan's way oi lite, and their popula-
tion declined very rapidly.
Within a tew years' time, the Spaniards had divided the land
into large grants called ranclws. Qne ot these, the Ranclm
A calanes, we have come to associate with our school, although
our buildings actually stand on the Rancho La Boca de' la
Cvllllllllll de Pinnle.
Candeliero Valencia was granted the 3,329 acre Rancho
Acalancfs, in l834, but he was iorced to sell it to William A.
Leidesdorti ot Yvrba lflll'lIll, who almost immediately sold it tc
Elani Brown. This ended the period of Spanish ownership.

Combining string, woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments, the Orches-
tra has played an important part in school activities this year. They contributed
their talent to the annual Evening of Music at which they played several selec-
tions. They have played at many assemblies and also accompanied the Christ-
mas and Senior plays. Constant practice under Mr. Triena's direction has en-
abled them to perform these tasks with admirable results.

cessor, Mr. Frank Triena, as conductors. This organization has distinguished
itself by playing at the majority of assemblies and athletic events. The members
of the band have worked long and hard to prepare for the annual Pvening of
Music which brings the best of Acalanes talent before the students and parents.

The Chorus together with the other musical
groups aided greatly in making the Christmas
play a great success. Their addition to assem'
hlies and the Evening ot Music has contrilsuted
much to the entertainment of the Student Body.
Mr. Triena has instructed them tully in the study
of voice elements essential to good singing.
The lunior Red Cross this year, under the
direction ot Miss Woodyard, Miss Cairo, and
Mrs, Williamson, has assisted in the task ot

This group has made progress in lilorarianship
since the starting ot their activity a year ago.
During the tirst semester, under the guidance ot
Miss Veronica Cowan, they have studied the

The Pan American class was a sertifwster
course under 'lie directirn rt Mics Rose Arn-
rrose. The class studied The history and geog'
raphy of South Arzierlca and 1I1'J9SllgCIl9Cl each
one ot the twenty Latin American repuhlics.
They had projects which they worked on in
ln 1846, the Rancho Acalanffs was purchased by Elam Brown,
who soon sold oneetenth of it to Nathaniel Iones in 1847. These
two men, the founders of the town of Lafayette, were prominent
figures in state and county affairs. Mr. lones, who was the first
sheriff of Contra Costa County, held many county offices, while
Elam Brown served in two state legislatures and was a member
of the Constitutional Convention in l849. Elam Browns grist mill,
built in l853, was the small beginning of the town of Lafayette,
which grew steadily, being on the route of the lumber haulers.
At the same time, the whole district became more settled and
other towns were started. At the crossing of the roads to Mar-
tinez and San Ramon, a small settlement was started which
grew into the present town of Walnut Creek. Seeing the resi-
dential possibilities of the Orinda and Moraga hills, many
people moved there and founded the settlements of Orinda and
Moraga. These four small towns, together with Canyon, were
the beginnings of the thriving community that we know today.

The abandoning tor the duration of interscholastic sports created a problem tor
the physical education instructors. The increased demand by the armed services
tor further physical training of the boys preparatory to induction also created
a difficult situation.
Coaches Eaton, White, and Walgren solved this situation by a revision of the
physical education program to include training in self-defense and exercises
that would prove necessary in a crisis. Muscular building-up was greatly in-
lntramural competition in sports was substituted tor former school games.
Baseball and basketball games between the classes incited keen rivalry, and
