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 all fields. 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. ......f-,- 1-seg...-,si :,jfe1fQ.,...- efe:.::.v.,-.f -- -:e:f-f1:--- f..--1 :A-,sf - - V, 1---1,3--, f..-,es 1- --as -A-- :.- -:fe - ----W - -- --ff ,- X 7 aj ,XX fm wil Pl 4 ttiii 'i , s 'iw X!
