THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF
ALAMEDA HIGH SCHOOL
Today our country is at war. We the students and faculty are attempting
to do our part in Winning this War. Several members of the faculty and
countless numbers of former students are in the armed forces of our
country. Many of us are taking a course of study designed to fit us for a
place in vital War industries, others of us plan to go to college not only to
extend our education but also to increase our Worth to this nation.
The incidental things which make up the background of our school
lives have been greatly changed. We find our first aid Work intensified, We
buy war stamps in the high school corridors, We assemble to listen to the
President and the Congress of the United States declare war, and we accept
these things as part of our school days. Indeed We must live our school days
and take our school-time pleasures amidst reports of turmoil and of cata-
clysmic events which are changing the course of history.
We present this 1942 AcoRN as a crystallization of some of these
moments. Through photographs, drawing, and Written records we have
tried to fix an impression of classes, sports, clubs, and incidents from the
daily life of Alameda High School. Years hence you may look through
these pages, relive these hours, and recall that they took place in this year
of emergency and peril. That is the purpose of an annual, We think, and
we hope We have accomplished that end.

The 1942 ACORN is dedicated to Major Fred A. Goldman, to Lieutenant-
Commander Charles W Cox, and to Second Lieutenant Charles A. Briscoe
who are now on leave of absence from our faculty to serve with the armed
forces of the United States. The spirit of these men is symbolic of the tem-
per of the many former Alameda High School students who are now in
uniform. Our deepest gratitude for the service of these faculty members
is hereby acknowledged. This dedication is a recognition of their desire for
freedom which gives them a Willingness to serveg it is a tribute to their
valiance in the service of their country.

In the weeks since the sudden and treacherous attack upon Pearl Harbor,
our first rush of anger and amazement has settled into grim determination.
Now We see clearly what will be required of us for victory. This is a total
War. It means total participation in the War effort by every citizen and
every institution. What part can the secondary schools most appropriately
play in Winning this War?
All agencies of the government seem to agree that the promotion of
health and physical efficiency is one of the most important tasks of the
secondary school in the War effort. Alameda High School Will, therefore,
continue to carry forward a vigorous program of health and physical edu-
cation designed to develop the physical strength and vigor of all of its
Training workers for war industries and services is another part the
high school can play in winning the war. Nearly all officers and many
technicians of the Army and Navy need a background of mathematics and
science. We are therefore urging our students to take three years of mathe-
matics and a year each of chemistry and physics. We are also training
students for War industries in our shops, in the defense classes. and in the
It is recognized that a thorough understanding of the history and politi-
cal ideals of the United States is necessary if one wishes to participate
intelligently in the war effort. The history and social studies courses offer
the best opportunity for a consideration of the issues, aims, and progress
of the War and the security of the peace to follow. We will adjust our
history courses so that supervised study and organized discussion will help
to make clear the difficult concepts that arise.
The high school should also play a part in winning the war by helping
to maintain the morale of pupils and adults. Morale is a matter of loyalty
and dedication to cherished ideals and values. After December 7, 1941,
our morale was high because the right and the wrong stood forth in bold
relief. We then saw clearly that we were fighting not only for our country's
freedom but for a civilized moral code. We must all help to keep alive the
idealism which makes America great and strong.
The individual student can help to Win this War by keeping his physical
condition above that drab level We usually call normal. He can remain in
school and prepare himself in English, Mathematics, Science, History, and
vocational subjects so that he can serve the nation better when he is needed.
He can help to keep morale high by serving his community today in civilian
defense and Red Cross Work. I know that the students of Alameda High
School will do their full part in wartime as in peacetime.
To Miss Crever and the ACORN Staff I extend my sincere appreciation
for their fine Work in preparing the 1942 ACORN.

When the Low Freshman Class entered Alameda High School in the
fall of 1941, they were greeted by a fine administration under the leader-
ship of President Dick Halliday. Other Inembers of this successful admin-
istration were Frances Tasker, a lovely and capable vice-presidentg Lee
Parker, an eflicient recording secretary, Sherrill Conner, a trustworthy
and hard-Working financial secretary, and Charlie Seger, a "red hot"
The student meetings were as excellent as President Halliday had prom-
ised in his campaign speech. An outstanding meeting was provided by
Salum Riszk, the Syrian refugee, who contrasted the horrors of life under
dictatorships with the blessings and opportunities for growth in a democ-
racy such as the United States. At the vice-president's meeting Frances
Tasker presented Alumni Talent for which Clarence Abbott, a former
student body president, acted as master of ceremonies.
The administration of Fall 1941 wishes to thank the Student Faculty
Committee, the Administrative Board, and both the Women's Board of
Control and the Men's Board of Control for help and guidance during this
term. They also Wish to thank each Inember of the student body for his
co-operation and for this opportunity to serve in oflice.

Our chief objective, as student body officers of the spring term of 1942,
was to maintain the standard of the student meetings in spite of prevailing
war conditions. We tried to do this in the following ways: Charlie Seger,
president, added spirit in his manner of conducting the meetings, Ann
Phillips, attractive vice-president, added the necessary charm to the ad-
ministrationg Sherrill Conner, recording secretary, attempted to keep ac-
curate and interesting minutesg Ernie Schneider, financial secretary,
slaved to balance the budget and boost student card sales, Tom Paterson,
yell leader, supplied the dynamo which kept the meetings lively and
We hereby express our thanks to the Student-Faculty Committee who
assisted us in securing a balanced program of entertainment for student
meetings. For the comedy lovers we had several cartoons and the Gordon
Magiciansg for the lovers of swing we engaged the Dixieland Band and a
dance band presented by the Girls' Associationg for the more serious we
secured a speaker who discussed our relations with South America and
the VVPA. Negro choir whose members offered a most excellent program
of negro spirituals.
We, the officers of the A.S.A.H.S. for the spring term of 1942, sincerely
hope that we accomplished our aims. We wish to express our thanks to
students and faculty for their co-operation which gave us a successful and
enjoyable term in office.

The imprint of the class of june '42 is deep in the tradition of Alameda
High School and will remain so long as our Alma Mater exists. Our class
has produced leaders in practically every field of endeavor: sports, school
entertainment, and the holding of offices. Each and every one of the mem-
bers of our class has done his personal share in making the class of June '42
the most successful of any graduating class, but there are those who stand
out vividly as the ones who will be remembered by us and the school.
In sports, those who did outstanding work were Walt Moreno in basket-
ball, Will Lotter and Bob Bierwith in football, Russ Carlson and jack
McAuliffe in swimming, Les Mehrtens and Ernie Schneider in tennis, Bill
Mcllveen, Bill Beckwith, Charlie Seger and Ross McMullin in track,
Bill Serena, Mike Korich and Will Lotter in baseball. The boys mentioned
would start an almost endless list of athletes in our class which would
include Paul Worthy, Bob Pollen, Ross Ewing, and countless others.
Our class has always provided ample entertainment in all of its social
events such as the 'LTropical Promf, the HHayseed Hop," "The Black
Flamingofl and many other activities such as dansants, skating parties,
and student programs. Outstanding leaders have guided these functions
thoroughly and well. Some of these have been Bill McCarty, Sumner

Walters. Charles Matheny. Kathleen Hooper, Sherrill Conner, Janice

There is one group of individuals in our class who has always been at the
top of the popularity list. Candidates for honors in this field are Lee Parker,
Emily Bennett, Shirley Moser, Ann Phillips, Shirley Speer, Knox Kirk-
land. Sherrill Conner, Tom Paterson, and last but positively not least
"Tiny" Sanderson, that swell fellow who is a friend of everyone and every-
thing. Honors for dramatic talent go to Mary Louise Johnson, Lois de
Freitas, Carol Brumm, Dick Besoyan, Paul Worthy, Sherrill Conner, and
To our faculty advisers and to our other teachers as well as to Mrs. Hall
and Mr. Bryan should go the credit and the praise for our successes. This
small group of people has given its fullest cooperation in all matters which
concerned us and our activities. Throughout the entire four years they did
not once refuse to help us when we asked their advise or requested their
aid in some class activity.

It was a Wonderful and never to be forgotten day when We, the class of
January i43. became members of the Alameda High School. All We could
realize was that We were 'fscrubsf' as they so rudely called us. We chose
Frank Ratto to be our 1A President, and, after our Work adjusted itself,
started our social career by giving a roller skating party. During our
second term We found life more pleasantg We re-elected Frank ,Ratto and
gave a profitable dansant.
In the spring of 1940 Bob Dreyer became our chief executive. This was
a 'fCircus Dayw term and We had a wonderful time. In the fall of 740
Bob Dreyer continued as President and We gave the 'tBellt eb Hop," our
first social and financial success. Margie Zirbel Was manager of this dance
with Vivian Ursin as co-manager.
At last we became low juniors and upper classmen. Our choice for leader
was Dean Hamilton. Highlight of this semester was the noon hour movie,
an altogether new idea which We put over With great enthusiasm.
After the summer of l4O We returned ready to put new fight into our
school activities. With Jack Turner holding the reins We put on the great
'LCoral Promw which was a great success. The decorations, under the direc-
tion of Allen Shrode, were very extraordinaryg the gym was completely

surrounded by murals of underwater scenes. The manager of the prom
was Bill Boyd and Peggy Hausen was co-manager.
Our interest in athletics was clear with Dean Hamilton and Harry
Curlett as baseball stars, and Bob Yoas, Frank Ratto, and Harry Hedges
as football stars.
And so the junior year passed and we, the class of January 743 had
entered our Senior year with jack Turner serving again as President.
Becoming known as t'The Biggest Little Class" in the school, we retained
our reputation by presenting the Senior Play, Ujune Mad," which, accord-
ing to ticket sales. was one of the greatest performances Alameda High
has ever staged. Those who saw it will never forget the expert acting of
Margie Zirbel, Ed Plate, and their supporting cast. The play was managed
by Allen Shrode and jean Mignacco. Bob Dryer will be remembered for
the excellent work he did in "High and Dryfl
Now, we the members of the Low Senior Class are planning for our final
semester. We have tested the pleasures of each year, have gone up and up.
and now stand on the last rung of the ladder. Our days at Alameda High
are soon to become history. but we hope that our record will live on.

The Class of june 1943, one of the most active classes in the school, is
prominent in the social field and in athletics. Cn the evening of April IO,
1942, We presented the great Ujungle Prom" Which was capably managed
by Paul Cox and his two co-managers, Phil Coney and Barbara von
Schmidt. It will go down as the outstanding event of the year, socially as
Well as financially.
Since that fall of 1939, When we entered Alameda High School, the
Class of june 743 has been a hard Working group and, therefore, We feel a
justifiable pride in our financial successes. The outstanding successes were
the 'fjungle Promf' the 'fScotch Hop,'l several noon dansants, the sales of
gardenias, candy and book covers. Near the end of our high junior year a
very enjoyable boys' breakfast was given.
Undoubtedly our class is one of the best represented in school in almost
every field of endeavor. The Words to HlVIargie,'l the hit song from the
musical comedy 'cHigh and Dryfl Were Written by Lorraine Colbert. She
assisted with parts of several other lyrics and contributed her talent in
many other programs.
In football we have Ernie Kellberg, Pete Christie, Buzz Roberts, Bill
Cooper and Phil Coney. In baseball we have Dell Hall, Vern Hall, jim
Pingree, Bob McCreery and Ray French who also played varsity basket-
ball. In swimming we have Charley Dorr and Bob Young. In track we are
represented by Bob Armstrong, Ralph Dolan, Bruce Rodgers, Dick Millar
and Bob Saxton. XVe have a strong representation on the golf team with
Ed Fry, the California Junior Amateur Champion. Bob Unthank, Ernie
Kellberg, Bin Randolph, Paul Cox and john Roach have achieved high
ratings as members of the golf team.
Although the above mentioned students have been particularly active,
it is realized that the success of a class depends upon each and every mem-
ber and that successes are due to the work of all rather than the work of
Without the assistance of our class advisers, teachers and friends who
have always shown deep interest in us, we should not be able to rank our-
selves as one of the best 'fall aroundw classes in this school. To them, we
ex ress a reciation and thanks.

We, the members of the class of January '41, have enjoyed being upper
classmen for the last few months. It has been pleasant to feel that We had
the privilege of holding student body Offices and that if given enough time
We might become seniors.
We scheduled the 4'Lollipop Hop" during the fall of 1941 and John
Wendt Who was to have been the manager made excellent plans. However,
this event had to be cancelled because of War conditions. This term, spring
'42, we gave a very successful dansant at which we used the bids designed
for the "Lollipop Hopf'
We wish to express our gratitude to the student body for the aid
extended us when our hop was cancelled. The future looks bright for us,
and we are planning a Wonderful time for all those who attend our Prom

one of the most active classes in school. So far, we have lived up to our goal.
We gave two dansants this yearg one was supervised by each administra-

and Norma Gambarini. We enjoyed presenting this social function for our

meda's B teams were composed of members of our class. Next year our
class will be well represented in sports.
Another field in which we have shown our spirit is in scholastic standing.
We have one of the highest ratings of all the classes in the school, and we
hope to keep this up throughout high school.

Our second year in Alameda High brings us more into the realization of
our duties and responsibilities as a definite unit Within the student body.
Our financial ventures have proved very successful and profitable with
our original IB plastic ornament sale and our popcorn sale on Circus Day.
Many members of our class excel in sports. Frank Reed has made a
name for himself in football and tennis, Leo Kahn does Well in track, and
Hugh Williams in pole vaulting. Leland Johnstone is on the Varsity
basketball team and Jack Weeden is a most unusual swimmer. Among
the girls Virginia Heseman, Joyce Wheatley, Betty Pederson and Carol
Van Loo are known for accomplishments in G. A. A. Sports.

The class has entered whole-heartedly in many school activities. The
co-manager of the Circus Day dance, Shirley Schwarz, was selected from
our class. Don Ray has also made a name for himself in school activities
by being on the NACORN7, and "Oak Leaf" staffs. Ray Barbera's name
should go down in our class records because it was he who made the plastic
ornaments for our sale. Many others are working to make our class really
known. We feel sure that with the cooperation of every one of us We shall
leave a good record on the pages of Alameda High when we graduate.

When we entered school last fall We wished to participate in all the
varied activities at Alameda High as often and in as many Ways as possible.
At our first 1A meeting this spirit was instilled into us by A. S. A. H. S.
President Dick Halliday. We had a fine percentage of student card holders
during both semesters.
Many of us turned out for sports. Of course We didn't expect to gain
much except basic training and fundamentals during our first year. Baird

Oswald made the varsity football squad and joe Kaney found a place on

We have held a dansant each term in order to get a financial start. We
hope to maintain our high standards of scholarship and to grow to be
better known as useful members of the school in the next year or two.

In the latter part of January, 1942, the present Low Freshman class
left grammar school behind and began an entirely new life in Alameda
High School. Of course, We were frightened by this change, but upon en-
tering high school We were so graciously received by all that we imme-
' diately realized that We were Alameda High students. Naturally, it took
some time for us to get used to the many new things which faced us.

Several changes had to be made which were made easy for us through
the aid of our advisers, teachers and upper classmen.
We want to thank everyone for the wonderful reception given us. When
we are juniors and seniors we hope We shall be able to make the freshmen
feel as much at home as we have been made to feel.

The spring of 1942 brings the publication of another ACORN. This year
is one to be remembered, and it is our hope that this ACORN will also be
remembered. I know that we, the staff, will not soon forget the joys and
troubles that we have enjoyed while working on this book. Without the
help and cooperation of every member of this staff the book would never
have been finished. The staff is grateful to Miss Crever for her advice and
guidance. Mr. Bryan has encouraged us and given assistance wherever
possible, and the members of the student body have cooperated whenever
Each sectiong sports, clubs, activities, has afforded its own peculiari-
ties, and no two pages are the same. We have tried to do a little something
different here and there, and it is our hope that you will receive as much
pleasure from the reading of this book as we have received from its com-
Those of you who remain in school can show your appreciation of this
book by giving to next year's staff the same cooperation you have given
us. I only wish that I, too, could be here to work on the next AcoRN.

originality, We produced a newspaper that compares favorably with that

The players of the Mask and Sandal have been extremely busy during
the past year, giving performances of some of the most excellent plays that
have ever been produced. Most of the credit is due to Mr. Lloyd Sisler,
our well-liked dramatics coach, who has developed much latent talent.
Anyone registering in his beginning classes receives a good foundation
in speech, pantomime, and other necessary fundamentals. The second
term is spent in doing things, performing in one-act plays such as NNO,
Not the Russians," 'fGeorgie Porgie," and 'fThe Slave With Two Faces,"
all of which were enthusiastically received When they were presented be-
fore the student body. Mr. Sisler is now in charge of the stage design class
which constructs the sets used in all of the dramatic productions.
When the Music and Drama Departments combine, their joint efforts
usually produce smash hits such as the beautiful Christmas Pageant of last
year or productions like "High and Dry." This outstanding musical com-
edy was Written by three talented students. The music was directed by
Mrs. Hazel Hunter, able head of the music department. and excellent
orchestral arrangements were done by another gifted member of the high
school. The results were especially fine: "High and Dry" was presented a
second time for the benefit of the Red Cross after it had reimbursed the
drama and music funds through its first performance. 'Watching the great
cast work together for the success of the play was a very heartening and
inspiring experience. Two very good senior plays, t'The Black Flamingo"
and "june Mad," were presented. Each of these fitted the atmosphere of
the term in which it was given. They are remembered as dramatic and
During the last few years. through the efforts of Mr. Sisler. the student
productions have been consistently becoming better and better: it is hard
to say what fine things are in store for the coming season.

The Glee Clubs and A Capella Choir are under the direction of Mrs.
Hazel B. Hunter. With the assistance of the Drama Department these
groups staged the delightful Christmas pageant HGift of joy? The Glee
Clubs often sing for P.-T. A. meetings or for other public programs. This
spring the Girls' Glee Club revived an old custom and gave a lovely musical
tea for their parents and friends.

Instrumental music groups which include the A. H. S. Concert Band,
R. O. T. C. Band. Swing Band, beginning orchestra and advanced orchestra
are under the direction of Mr. John Kafka. This year, the R. O. T. C. Band
played at the Public Celebration held by the Pacihc Bridge Company when
they started construction on the largest lloating dry dock in the world.
The swing band, which is a recently formed group, played at the supper
held by the Oak Grove Lodge at the Masonic Temple. All of these organi-
zations often assist at public functions, and, of course, no game would be
complete without the stirring music of our band.

HATS OFF TO UUR COACHES!
Alameda High's excellent coaching staff was augmented last fall by Mr.
Bell and Mr. Millett. Don Bell arrived from Lodi to take over the position
of head football coach. Mr. Bell had built an enviable record at Lodi, and
he has Wasted no time in beginning an even more impressive stay at Ala-
meda. Chet Millett was imported from Dos Palos High to assist in football
and to become head baseball coach. A great favorite, Coach Millett
trained an undefeated league championship nine this spring.
Among the familiar faces is Lewis Jolley. head of our physical education
department. Coach Jolley also finds time to devote to the track team of
which he is head coach. Yirgil Gilcrease is the most versatile member of
our staff. He coaches the Varsity and "B" basketball teams as well as golf
and tennis. Rounding out our coaching staff, Chris Freeman handles Var-
sity swimming and the football reserves.
Alameda High is indeed fortunate to possess a coaching staff of such
high caliber as the one pictured above. Not only because of their skill in
coaching but also because of their policy of teaching clean play and sports-
manship, do we say-HATS OFF TO OCR COACHES!

Surveying the football turnout in September, Coach Don Bell realized
that he faced a difficult season in his first year at Alameda High. However,
Coach Bell took the task in hand and turned out a team which, playing
the underdog in every game and outweighed by every opponent, came
through with third place in the A. C. A. L. standings. Captained by Bob
Bierwith, the only returning first string man, our 1941 varsity was made
up largely of gridders sent up from Chris Freemanls reserves.
After an unsuccessful practice season in which we lost every game,
Alameda hit top form and triumphed over a hard-fighting Albany team
12-6 in the league opener. The following week, we met a supposedly supe-
rior Richmond team which scored on a long pass play to hold us to a 6-6 tie.
Suffering a let down against Hayward, our gridders earned a 6-6 tie
through a second-half comeback. The season came to its climax against
our traditional rival Berkeley, who won a real heart-breaker 6-O. The
Yellowjackets scored their lone touchdown in the final 18 seconds on a
prayer pass, after having been played to a standstill for four quarters by
an inspired Hornet team. In the closing game, Alameda, riddled with
injuries, took a walloping from a powerhouse Piedmont team 38-O.
Returning to form a nucleus for next yearls team are Bryant Wong
tall-county guard 5, Ernie Kellberg, Bob Yoas. Harry Hedges, Frank
Ratto, and Pete Christie. Outstanding seniors who will be sorely missed
next year are Will Lotter, Bill Mills, John Suronen, Ed Mazzini, Paul
Worthy, Walt Maclean, Hal Towery, Bart Pease, Antone Ratto, Charles
Matheny, Ray Perkins, Bill Powell, and Lee Parker, who was out for most
of the season after an unfortunate accident in a practice game.

recordg Bob Pollen who made the all-county teamg Bill Roth, a steady
guardg Richie Gonsalves, Ross Ewing, Ralph Wilhelm, Douglas Spencer,

will be of value next year. Among them are: Stuart Inman, Bob Wuest-
hoff, Jack Periera, Don Pries, joe Kaney and others.
Much credit is due Coach Virgil Gilcrease for the fine Work he did with

BASEB LL 1942
The Alameda Varsity Baseball team Won the A. C. A. L. with eight
victories and no defeats. They climaxed the season with a 20-3 victory over
Berkeley as pitcher Dean Hamilton pitched a two-hit ball game.
With many veterans returning the team started out strong and kept
getting better. In the infield were Willard Lotter catcher, Bob McQueery
first base, Carl Gerner second base, Bill Serena shortstop, and Del Hall
third base. This infield proved air tight and they all played exceedingly
Well. The outfield was undoubtedly the best in the league with Ray French,
Mike Korich, and jim Pingree, all of Whom played Well. Behind the beau-
tiful pitching of Dean Hamilton, this team proved invincible.
Good Work was done by Coach Chet Millet, who took over following
Mr. Eifert's departure and, in his first year, achieved a perfect season.
The prospect for next year is very good with McQueery, Hall, French,
and Pingree returning from the first team and some good men from the
reserves and junior varsity coming up. Alameda, with a little luck, should
have another good season.

Alameda's 1942 track team, coached by Lewis Jolley, placed fourth in
the A. C. A. L. Meet. Our tracksters had a moderately successful practice
season in which they defeated Albany and Hayward and tied Commerce.
In the league meet Alameda was hampered by injuries, illness, and ineligi-
bility rules. Ross McMullin, 1941 A. C. A. L. 440 champion, was unable
to compete because of recurring illness and injuries, Charles Seger was
also out of competition because of illnessg and jack Van Allen, brilliant
high jumper, was declared ineligible. Other consistent point winners for
Alameda were Bill Mcllveen in the sprintsg Mac Yeaman and Ross
Mclllullin in the quarter mile: Tim Hendrickson, distance man, who is
A. C. A. L. half-mile champion: Ralph Dolan, league shot put champion,
and Will Lotter in the shot putg Knok Kirkland and Bruce Rodgers in the
pole vault: Bob Bierwith and Henry Stanley in the broad jumpg and Alan
Smith in the high jump. Outstanding individual performance of the season
came from jack Van Allen, who broke the school high jump record with
a leap of six feet one inch. Tim Hendricksen won easily in A. C. A. L. 880
to upset the dopesters. Ralph Dolan placed first in shot-up in the A. C. A. L.

Before the Atherton Code was adopted Ala-
meda had made an excellent name for itself in
crew against all competition. However, this year
crew lacked competition and was dropped after
several weeks of practice on the estuary. Those
oarsnien who were slated for first boat positions
were: Paul Worth tCaptain5, Lee Johnstone,
Len Reifenstein, Ted Arriola, Don King, Bill
Schill, Clayton Houston, Doug Webb, jim Mc-
Allister CCoxswainl, and Tom Mathews falter-
An invitation was extended to our crew to
compete in a regatta in the East, but it couldnlt
be accepted. It is hoped that crew will be started
again next season.

Alameda's swimmers placed second to Berkeley
in the A. C. A. L.: they Were overcome by sheer
weight of numbers. The most outstanding indi-
vidual performance of the season came from Jack
McAuliffe who broke his brother's A. C. A. L.
record in the 100-yard breast stroke in the time
of 1:11.2. Our medley relay team, consisting of
Jack McAuliffe, Jack Weeden. and Rollie Bugee.
broke the league record by two seconds in 1:Z7.6.
Seniors who will be missed next year are Russ
Carlson, Rollie Bugee, and jack McAuliffe.
A promising team is foreseen for next spring as
Jack VVeeden, Bud Guisness. Lloyd Wagner. Don
Mehrtens, and Joe Harp are returning.
With only one match remaining to be played,
Alameda's tennis team is set for second place in
the final league standings. Playing singles for Ala-
meda are: Conway Catton, undefeated A. C. A. L.
champion, Les Mehrtens, Harry Hedges, Ernie
Schneider, and Frank Reed. Rounding out the
team in doubles are Al Soulages, Bob Mason, Ben
Gintjee, and Pete Vallerga. Coach Gilcrease is
confident of a strong team next year as all players
are returned with the exception of Les Mehrtens,
Harry Hedges, and Ernie Schneider.

During the fall semester 1941 the California Scholarship Federation
was very active under the guidance of President Barbara Glayzer. The
biggest event of the semester was the district meeting at George Wash-
ington High School on the fifteenth of November. There were several
social meetings and house parties held during the semester also.
The spring semester was started off by an opera party on March 14. The
outstanding event of the entire year took place on April 25 when the
Regional Conference was held at Sequoia High School in Redwood City.
Approximately twenty students from the Alameda Chapter attended. A
week later eight students attended the district meeting at Acalanes High
School in Lafayette. The activities of the entire year were guided ably by
the faculty sponsors, Mr. Reginald F. Saunders, Miss Mary Geiger, Miss
Mary Connelly and Mr. Darrell Coughlan.

In the past few months the activities of the French Club have greatly
increased. It has been the purpose of the French Club to provide pleasure
and to help students to better their understanding of French. This year
We are doing our part in the War effort. At the present time the girls of the
French Club are preparing an afghan for the Red Cross fromhwool pro-
vided by the Club. Plans have been made to purchase a War Savings Bond.
The meetings of the French Club have been made very enjoyable by
plenty of refreshments, interesting games, and fine entertainment pro-

turned the club over to Miss Gamble who has been every bit as helpful
and cooperative as Mrs. Ambrosoli had been. The main business for this

apples as its concession.
The students enjoy the Latin Club immensely as shown by their prompt
and enthusiastic attendance.

by enthusiasm, large attendance and general satisfaction with the pro-
During both terms student talent has been used exclusively as a means
of entertainment. Among those who took part during the Fall Term were
Betty Jean Matthews, Bobbie Digioia, and Merdie Crane. In addition,
the officers of the term were ever ready to add their help to making each
meeting the success that it was.
In the spring We continued the idea of having members take leading
parts in the meetings, with the result that each meeting has been interest-
ing. The Pan American Day meeting, held on April 14, featured talks by
Bruce Rodgers and Robert Coon, as well as the singing of popular Spanish
songs by the club members, accompanied at the piano by Lillian Staricco.
Entertainment given by Carol Carleton and Lorraine Colbert was enjoyed
at another meeting. The last meeting of the term ended with a dance to
Spanish-American music. The selling of tamales by Spanish Club mem-
bers on Circus Day has ended the year's many activities.
Thanks are due the officers of both terms for their constant interest

One of the oldest and most active organizations of Alameda High School
is the German Club.
The meetings of the Fall Term, under the capable direction of President
Philip Wolfe and his fellow officers, were outstanding in their appeal to
the members. At these meetings, which were held every other week if
possible, entertainment and refreshments followed the business of the day.
The membership fee of twenty-five cents a semester was used for refresh-
ments at the meetings and for a picnic. Last Fall we went to Marsh Creek
where we went swimming, had lots of fun and also lots of picnic dishes
At Christmas the girls dressed a doll to make some little girl's Christmas
happier. The annual Christmas Party was held at Randall Dickey's house.
Refreshments were served, games were played, and everybody had fun.
As the guests left for home it rained a deluge and gave the party a touch

The Girls' Association of Alameda High School is an organization to
which every girl belongs. Dues are not compulsory but all of the girls try
to do their part, and in return for this cooperation they are provided with
entertainment at the meetings. -
This term Barbara Skinner, vice-president, was chairman of the Fresh-
man Reception. This social afternoon is held every term in order to
acquaint the new girls with the older girls and With the traditions of the
school. The reception given this spring seemed particularly enjoyable to
all those Who attended.
A very enjoyable program of swing band music was presented by the
Girls? Association to the student body this term. This was possible because
most of the girls had paid their dues.
The administrations of both terms Worked hard to make their meetings
interesting and successful. The spring officers feel that jackie Finfrock
has been a particularly capable officer and deserves praise.

The chief objective of the Men's Association of the Alameda High
School is the encouragement of greater participation in sports. Since the
reorganization of this body, Alameda High has made a better showing in
sports. This year our adviser was Mr. Don Bell, the new football coach.
During the fall term the Men's Association, under the able leadership
of Walt Hutchinson, sponsored a series of movies of the Alameda football
games. He also presented a series of interesting speakers during the term.
This spring Dean Hamilton brought to the lXIen's Association Bob
Herwig, freshman basketball coach at the University of California, who
gave us an interesting talk on physical fitness and the sports program in
this war. At another meeting Coach Chet Millet gave a talk on baseball.
The freshman reception held this term was so successful that it will
probably become a permanent part of our program.

two hundred and forty members. who are divided into three companies,
the band and the staff. Under the guidance of regular army officers. the
student staff has charge of plans and training of the unit. as well as the

men. In this event the first place was won by Art Velasco. second place by
Paul Cox, and third place by Ernie Kellberg.

The Sword and Shield Society consists of the officers, past and present.
of the R. O. T. C. Our purpose in this organization is to create a better
fellowship and understanding between the officers and to promote social
activity in the R. O. T. C. and Alameda High School.
Social and amusement activities held throughout the term consist of
initiations, socials. scavenger hunts, progressive dinners, and dances. We
also held a very successful dansant during the Spring term.
Main event of the season and a highlight on the school's social calendar
is the famous Military Ball, held each Spring term in the school gym-
nasium. This year the members of the unit entertained their friends at
the Ball on May the eighth.
