ACALANES - DECADE I
Ten years ago on May ll, 1940 in a fertile tomato patch, the construction of
Acalanes was begun. Within three months the desires of a cooperative commu-
nity and the magic of modern engineering had created a high school, still un-
finished as to buildings but completely furnished with eager students and hard-
working teachers. Looking back, conditions seem pretty hectic: Public Speaking,
English I and Math were being taught in various sections of the gym bleachers:
Coach Mattson trotted in from baseball to teach World Historyg Miss Nicholson
would turn off the gas jets in the chem lab, run down to the gym and grab a
basketball, French, Spanish and Latin raised international havoc in the same
class. Every room and teacher served double and triple purposes.
Each year since that momentous first one has seen new developments at Aca-
lanes. Three times it has been necessary to add new buildings: classrooms, shops,
lunchroom and library. The student body has grown from its initial 395 to 950:
the faculty from l3 to 47. Happily, this phenomenal growth has served only to
intensify Acalanes' traditions of friendliness and outstanding achievements in
Although a mere ten years young by ordinary reckon-ing, the Acalanes Don
has an honorable history that goes back to the time he sailed into San Francisco
and first explored the countryside. Dressed in his brilliant sash and jaunty som-
brero cordobes, he rode over the hills of Contra Costa, made friends with the
Aklan Indians, and chose a rancho near the center of the present school district.

ln the decade of its existence, Acalanes has undergone rapid development,
but this has not been without extensive planning and hard work. This year the
l95U AKLAN is dedicated to one who for ten years has given generously of his
time and energy in making this progress possible.
He is a man loved by students and faculty alike for his cheerful smile and
charming manner. No Acalanes event, be it banquet, dance, or graduation, is
without his assistance. His patience and skill have helped to make Acalanes a
picture of beauty with spacious lawns and flowering court gardens 7 consequently,
our school ranks among the most attractive in the nation.
lt is in friendship and gratitude that we dedicate the l95O AKLAN to Manuel

During the past decade Acalanes has made notable progress in the field
of counseling. Since the first year of the school, the counseling staff has in-
creased from two members to six. It has also acquired a new and larger office.
With better facilities to carry on this important work, the active and capable
staff under the direction of Leland Russell devotes its time to helping and en-
couraging students both in regard to their high school programs and their
future plans. A personal interest is taken in each individual, and aid is given
to him in finding and developing his own abilities. For this purpose the staff
conducts several different types of aptitude, attitude, and achievement tests.
Also this department provides an unlimited amount of information needed by
graduating seniors in making their post-graduation plans whether they include
working or attending college.

Presided over by the Student Body President, the Citizenship Committee is
composed of one sophomore, two juniors, and two seniors elected by their re-
spective classes. With the aid of a faculty adviser, this group accepts or rejects
all recommendations for citizenship points.
This year marks the second year of existence for the Rally Committee. The
committee, composed of ten Seniors and ten Iuniors, elected as its officers Rich-
ard Breuner, president: Pete Larmer, vice-president: and Shirley Van Cleave,
secretary. It is the job of this group to see that the Student Body is "rallied" to
support their teams by stimulating and entertaining rallies. At the end of each
year, the members choose ten Sophomores to fill the vacancies left by the gradu-

The Boys' Federation originated in the school's first year with a membership
of l95 compared to today's 475. Including all Acalanes boys, this group held as
its main event the annual Fathers' and Sons' Banquet. Its other activities included
a Faculty vs. Seniors basketball game, a basketball clinic, and a demonstration
of police equipment by Deputy Sheriff Norman Wilson.

Composed of all Acalanes girls, the Girls' League successfully carried out
several big projects. First among these was a magazine subscription sale which
raised money for the organization. Later the Girls' League sponsored the annual
March of Dimes campaign at Acalanes. ln May the girls held their biggest affair,
the Mothers' Tea, "An English Country Fair."

Desiring to make their last year at Acalanes a memorable one, the gradu-
ating Seniors presented a series oi very entertaining affairs. First of these events
was the Senior Assembly, "Hollywood," a sketch about lite on a movie set in
which a number oi Seniors exhibited their previously undiscovered talents. Next,
appropriate to the state of the elements in lanuary, the Seniors held the Senior
Extra, "Stormy Weather." Then on April Zl they presented their Senior Play,
"Mother ls A Freshman." Attended by a large crowd, the play was hailed as
a fine production. The Seniors ended the year with a splendid Senior Ball, "Gar-
den Of Memories," which again illustrated the abilities of this group.

The Iunior Class started the year ott with a bang when they lowered the
drawbridge and threw "A Knight Out." This affair turned out to be one ot the
most successful Iunior Proms on record. Later, during the annual Christmas gilt
campaign, the Iuniors again proved themselves outstanding when eight out of
their ten advisories reached the hundred percent mark. On February twenty-
lirst, they further showed their abilities when they held the Iunior extra dance,
"Down On The Farm."
The Iuniors' biggest success ot the year was the Iunior-Senior Banquet, "Deep
South." In an atmosphere of Southern hospitality, the Iuniors served the Seniors'
dinner and provided them with excellent entertainment. Later, the same enter-
tainment was given in an assembly for the whole student body and was also
taken as an exchange assembly to Alhambra and Mt. Diablo.

With the end ot this year the Sophomores can discard the role of underclass-
men and assume their positions in the "upper bracket" as Iuniors. Since their
arrival here as Freshmen, the members of the Sophomore Class have proved
themselves very capable in many fields. ln activities such as Aklan, Blue
Print, Dance, and Music, the Sophomores contributed their valuable talents,
and a number of them displayed well developed skills in various athletic events.
Furthermore, as a group the Sophomores exhibited their highly cooperative spirit
in organizing' the annual Sophomore Hop, the theme of which, "Candy Isle,"
was aptly carried out by colorful decorations ot candy canes and qinqerbread

This year the Freshmen invaded Acalanes with the largest class enrollment
in the school's history. Despite their enormity they managed to coordinate their
efforts in carrying out the different Freshman activities. After converting the gym
into a remote section of the "dark continent," the Frosh played host to Dons and
Donnas at their annual Freshman Frolic "Africa Screams." As the year further un-
folded, Freshmen contributed to other school activities by taking charge of deco-
rations for both the Christmas Performance and the Messiah. In May they cli-
maxed their first year by iriaugurating "Frosh Day." The entire campus was
given exclusively to the Frosh for picnicking, folk-dancing, swimming, and other

fall, the drama group presented a melodrama,
"Curses, the Villain Is Failed," the cast of
which included Beverley Mumford, Marilyn
Hansen, Marion Troyer, Tom Hageman, Dave
Dehlin, and Criss Fitzpatrick. Later, drama

skit, monologues, and a scene from "Our
Hearts Were Young and Gay." Those taking
part in this performance were Petey Bedard,
Sue Tamer, Shirley McAninch, Criss Fitzpat'
rick, and Sally Finzel.
During the third quarter, all dramatic efforts
were coordinated in preparing for the Senior
Play, "Mother Is A Freshman." The leading
roles were portrayed by Bev du Pee as Mrs.
Abigail Abbott and Laura Castelnuovo as
Susan. Others in the cast were Ioan Niemann,
Barbara Sondag, Arlyss McFetridge, LeAnn
Court, Ioanne Randall, Iackie Swanson, Mar-
cia Eggerts, Bill Hampton, Lee Bates, Bob Son-
dag, Fred Bead, and Larry Feagans.
Near the end of the year, the Drama Guild

This year the active Acalanes' chapter of the California Scholarship Feder-
ation was larger than ever before due tothe greatly increased enrollment at Aca-
lanes. For their annual college visiting trip, the group chose the University of
California campus where, besides enjoying themselves thoroughly, they learned
something of the functions of this big institution.

atinq members, the C. S. F. gave the dance, "Gypsy Caravan," and sponsored
a noon swimming and diving exhibition. in Iune they ciimaxed their activities
with the big C. S. F. picnic.
The C. S. F. is composed of ali students receivinq for their semester grade
three A's and one B, or better. Miss Vera Richardson acts as the qroup's adviser.

Acalhonors is the second honor society at Acalanes. This group and the Aca-
lanes Chapter of the C. S. F. were iormedat the same time, Acalhonors deriving
its name from the name of the school. Both honor societies follow a similar pattern
in organization. Like C. S. F., Acalhonors is maintained for students who have
a superior record scholastically, and therefore there are certain requirements
all incoming members must meet. It a student wishes to join this honor organiza-
tion, he must receive three B's and one A for his semester grades. Membership
in this society is also automatically extended to all students belonging to C. S. F.
The group's adviser is Miss Vera Richardson.

ture and functions of government in relationship to domestic and international
problems ot a social, economic and political nature. The organization also at-
tempts to stimulate in all students an interest in these affairs through movies, ex-
hibits, speakers, and other projects. Advised by Mr. Bill Ross, the group held a
regional convention and sponsored a school-wide "Career Day."
IUNIOR RED CROSS
This year the Acalanes Iunior Red Cross Chapter carried out several note-
worthy projects. To raise money tor the national organization the group held a

The Don gridders had a highly successful
season. This team was perhaps the best in
Acalanes' history winding up in second place
with six wins, one loss, and a tie.
On September lst, Coaches Mattson and
Stevens greeted over one hundred grid hope-
tuls. Included were eight first stringers trom 1948
and many capable 1.V.'s. Several Weeks ot gruel-
ing Workouts put the team in mid-season form.
With a backfield that averaged 178 pounds
behind an aggressive line that averaged 187
pounds, the T-formation Dons hosted the Albany
Cougars in a practice tilt. The result was a deci-
sive 26-U victory. On September 23rd, the El
Cerrito Gauchos crumbled, 13-U, under a fight-
ing Acalanes line and the hard running of Ken
Iones. The Tracy Bulldog, the next victim, fell
by a Z7-0 score in an unexciting game.

The first league clash with the Diablo Devils
found the Don eleven fumbling their way to a
fortunate 6-6 tie.
The following Friday evening saw the Dons-
men pass and run Alhambra High off the field
with a 39-6 win.
Seven days later the Blue and White encoun-
tered a scrappy club from Antioch. This was the
Don's finest performance. In the line, guards
BoBo Forni and George Cockerton were outstand-
ing. End Granny Siler snagged passes thrown by
lack King, while Pete Larmer and Ken Iones,
aided by the fine blocking of Lawrence Lucas,
ran through and around the Panther line. The
Dons emerged on top, Z6-l2.
On the afternoon of October 28th, the Iohn
Swett lndian was scalped in the "Sugar City."
The reserves gave the regulars a two quarter
rest and ended with 38 points to Crockett's O.

Then came the acid test for the Blue and White
machine when they tangled with Pittsburg's Pi-
rates. Before a record crowd the Dons were
played off their feet and lost 32-7.
Although Acalanes did not win the league
championship, the team's success was undoubt-
edly aided by the fine line coaching of Mr.
Stevens, backfield work of Mr. Mattson, and
help of Mr. Hageman.
Three men made the first string all-county
team: George Cockerton, Pete Larmer, and Law-
rence Lucasy Ken Iones was a second string all-
county back. Orland Chiavini, Iay Forni, Dick
Laney, Lloyd Torchio, and lack York received
The hole left by the twenty-eight graduating
seniors will be capably filled by members of
Mr. Eaton's fine Iunior Varsity team which this
year won the mythical league championship.

This year's cage team was anything but ordi-
nary. Under the direction of its new mentor, Lee
Arth, it stole the show from the rest of the county
and brought home the county championship, the
first since the 47-48 season.
The Dons took it on the chin in their first prac-
tice tilt with Fremont, 23-36. The future remained
obscure as Alameda and Richmond also sank
the Dons. On December 2, the Albany Cougars
became Acalanes' first victim. Marsh Freeman,
all-county forward last year, led the Dons with
ll markers. In a close contest at El Cerrito, our
cagers lost 38-40, but a week later they repayed
the Gauchos 26-24.
The Blue and White continued in fine style,
nipping Diablo 33-31 and then gliding past An-

tioch and Berkeley. Then against Iohn Swett our
boys seemed unable to hit, and they came out
on the short end, 32-38.
After this blow, the Don casaba men got back
on their feet and played inspired basketball.
Tanking 20 points, Marsh Freeman led the Dons
over Pittsburg. After ramping over Alhambra,
the boys once again met Diablo. Bob Ferro's 12
points helped pull this one out of the fire.
The Donsmen defeated Piedmont and then had
a close call with Antioch. Now came two crucial
tests, the first with Iohn Swett. The Dons took this
onep Marsh making 22 points and Granny Siler
connecting for ll. The second with Pittsburg
proved nearly fatal. The Blue and White led until
a last minute burst by the Pirates, but a set up by
Marsh and a free throw by Larry Feagans put
the game and the C.C.A.L. Championship on ice.

With the Championship under their belt, the
Dons went to San Francisco where they defeated
Weed in the Tournament of Champions. But the
Salinas club proved too tall for the Dons and
eliminated them in the semi-finals.
Forward Marsh Freeman was unanimously
chosen allrcounty. Lloyd Torchio and Bob Ferro
landed second team positions.
Coach Ierry Brown's "B" team started this year
in a winless way. It was the sixth game when
they chalked up their first win. They ended the
season with 6 wins in 18 encounters. Art Siler
was an all-county selection.

The 1950 edition of the Don track team brought unexpected fame to Acalanes.
These tracksters started the year with unknown strength and grew vastly stronger
as the meets sped hy. A
ln dual competition, the thinclads were unimpressive in their first loss to
Fremont. Then the Dons shifted to high gear and routed Pittsburg, Antioch, and
Diablo. However, El Cerrito proved to be too powerful for the Dons.
In more rugged engagements, the Donsmen posted many imposing victories.
First they won the county throne at Diablo, and then went on t6 cop top honors
in the North Coast Section. The greatest accomplishment, however, was the
North Coast Championship in which the Dons garnered 25 points. This win made
Acalanes the first Contra Costa County school to win this Spalding North Coast
trophy of the C.l.F.
Some of the Don stalwarts were Lawrence Lucas, Orlando Chiavini, Harry
Nielson, Iiggers Warren, and Granny Siler.
Coach Lord's "B" squad had a very good season. lt won three meets and
took third in both the County and North Coast Section.

lim Iacolous, and Brooks de Laneux. Iohn Rounds set a new 200 yard tree style
record. In dual competition, the Blue and Whites won 6 meets and lost 2.

berger, Iudy Woolsey, Ann Bronson, Ann Champlain, and Gail Landsmith.
Following the volleyball tournament came basketball season. ln the final

Later in the year the speedball tournament was held with the combined team
of third and fourth periods emerging victorious. Those making the All-School
Speedball Team were Sue Barnhart, Sharon Brown, Laura Castelnuovo, Ann
Champlain, Barbara Hansen, Rosemarie lndelicato, Adele Mark, Diane Owen,
Pat Pfeiffer, and Margie Taylor.
ln addition to these activities, the G.A.A. also held badminton and tennis
tournaments, a baseball elimination series, and a swimming meet.
The G.A.A. also arranged several non-competitive get-togethers with other
schools. The badminton playday, "St, Patrick's Playlandf' was held in March
and included "bird" enthusiasts from six schools. Another playday was held
with Diablo girls on the afternoon of the league basketball game between the
Dons and the Devils.
The girls who received block "A's" in the middle of the year were Val de
Laneux, Barbara Reark, Rita French, Iudy Woolsey, Ianet Emerson, and Ann
Seulberger. To qualify for this award, a girl must have placed on three All-School
teams. Participation in two major dance performances is equal to one school
For next year, the Girls' Athletic Association plans to draw up a new con-
stitution in order to meet the needs of the ever-increasing size of the school. Also,
new activities are being planned in the way of after-school sports.
