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 priorities. 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.

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 hhchael Monaco Margaret Nicholson Rose Ambrose Lafferfy Kathrnne McCulley Helene Carre Cnarles Eaton Vera Richardson Sara Woodyard T Stanley Warburton Helen Williamson Thomas Murney Veronica Cowan Henry Knight Elmo Heard Marne Merkel Mnlllcenl Hamburger Stanley Walqren Betsy Pembroke Frank Trlena YN 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.

This dance, together with other activities, was given for the pur- pose of raising money for class events. Qther Senior entertainment included the Picnic and the Senior Ball, an annual for- mal dance. The luniors gave the traditional lunior-Senior Banquet in honor of the de- parting class. The close of the year proved an hectic time for all Seniors. The Senior play, grad- uation announcements, cap and gown measurements, graduation exercises, and the baccalaureate ceremonies required much time and effort on the part of this class. The Seniors terminated their final year at Acalanes with hidden feelings of regret even though they showed outward signs of rejoicing as the time of departure grew near.

'Q-7 'L JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS Sally Bronson, President Joyce Kalas, Secretary '11, Klan, 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.

' A SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS Pete Marshall, President Frank Hammond, Vice President .gypfwmm gram, 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 get-togethers. 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.

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 Goodrich. Kit Chaney, Treasurer Pat Lax, Secretary , V K A A , .

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. .9QllfII36llFlIIN7IllCIlFllIlIE5S CORRIDOR near library 1.' fy' 4 K 'ei Drawing by Bob Jessup ilmwgfm WWuvlFi"!MNn!010m ,Av 3 2 ,W 4, we N 4 f x K wh f Q M 1 4 , ,Q Af, , 1 H V ' 194' - + ' 'fi + A A W 4 , ,. , ,,, , A 5' I gt im .

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. '1z,HQcLL'1zv.4.4, The lunior Red Cross this year, under the direction ot Miss Woodyard, Miss Cairo, and Mrs, Williamson, has assisted in the task ot keeping our soldiers comfortable and happy. The money collected at school was used to make pillows and other articles for the sick and wounded. 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 functions oi our modern lilprfrry and reports on fxll the new lnool-ss. Fm ' 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 class. -0' 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. 9ilIIClIUIHIUlbllE55lIUIW3S l'JTlfl nf If ll-IfY'l1'lCl,-l l1l'llZi'il1'f by liuln .lf-.wrap f 5' .

I On' 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- tensitied. lntramural competition in sports was substituted tor former school games. Baseball and basketball games between the classes incited keen rivalry, and much interest was shown by all in the outcome of these games. wx Several new courses have been added to the physical education classes to aid the present physi- cal training program in prepar- ing boys for duty in the armed service. Boxing, cross-country running, and setting-up exer- cises were required not only to strengthen the prospective sol- diers, but also to prepare them for rigorous training.

Sixteen teams from the gym classes battled tor the honor of the school cham- pionship. ln addition inter-class basketball games were played at noon. Relay racing and horse shoe pitching proved interesting games tor the looys during QYm periods and were received with great enthusiasm. Q n, An interesting feature was added to the Physi- cal Education program, during the latter part of the year, exclusively devoted to stiff competi- tion in athletic prowess among the students. Ten fields of endeavor were laid out, and each event was given a top score of lOOU points. Boys were divided into A, B, C, and D groups according to age, weight, and height. The scores rated by each student for the ten events were added up, and the three highest totals in each alphabet group received medals of achievement. The ten events were as follows: lOO yard dash, 220 yard dash, 440 yard run, l2U and llU yard low hurdles, high jump, broad jump, shot put, discus throw, pull up ffrorn hori- zontal barl and push up.
