In these times of war we must make two basic changes in our way of life,
a complete change in our actions and a complete change in our thinking.
Our change in actions in school is brought about primarily by the change
in our opportunities and courses. Our school in former years has leaned
more towards the cultural type of education. Now, as the entire world is
engulfed in war, we have had to convert every concern and institution to all
out War effort. This transition can easily be seen in Alameda High School.
Many courses have been introduced into high school for the first time
within the last year. In the shops instructors prepare us for the production,
repair, and maintenance of products used in the war. The academic courses
prepare us for further training in the varied fields supported by the armed
forces. Science courses prepare us for essential civilian and military occu-
pations. In the R.O.T.C. the boys are given much valuable training which
will be of great use when they join the armed forces.
Our change in thoughts is something less tangible, something not
fostered by marching in parades or making speeches, but something nur-
tured from within. It is an urge to do the utmost for the furtherance of the
war. The majority of students probably have this feeling although they
cannot express it.
We of the staff of the 1943 AcoRN have endeavored to capture the spirit
and life of the Alameda High School during war and to retain some of the
peaceful school life of normal times. We hope as you read your 1943 ACORN
you may recall many forgotten, happy thoughts and pleasant events. I
"There are in the world two powers-the sword and
the spirit. The spirit has always vanquished the sword."
To the spirit in which the men and Women who were former students of
Alameda High School serve their country at home and abroad, this book is

MH. BHYllN'S MESS EE
The students of the class of June, 1943, are to be congratulated on the
splendid record they made during their four years of high school. Seventy
members of the class made a "B" average or better, and one hundred sixty
members of the class, or 63 75 , made a "B-" or better. If the class roster of
two hundred fifty-three names were arranged according to rank in schol-
arship, two hundred twenty-five names would be passed before a student
with an average mark of UC" was reached. Only twenty-eight students fell
below a "CH average and only tive below a 'KC-".
Marks made in high school play a most important part in the future
success of a student. Universities, colleges, civil service bureaus, many
branches of the armed services, and almost all business concerns now ask
for a transcript of a student's high school record when he applies for admis-
sion to a higher school or seeks employment in some branch of the govern-
ment or in a business. Good marks open the way to better positions and to
higher education, while poor marks block the individual on every side. Bet-
ter positions naturally carry with them higher incomes, which in turn mean
higher standards of living.
Employing concerns want to know many other things about the student
before they make him a member of their organizations. They want to know
if the student is honest, if he is trustworthy, if he is regular in attendance, if
he is prompt in doing assigned tasks, and if he gets along well with other
people. Inquiries differ somewhat, but they all want to know if the student's
citizenship was satisfactory and if we can recommend him.
It is a real pleasure for us to answer an inquiry when we can say nice
things about a student and when we can send a transcript of record that
shows good marks throughout four years of high school. It is not such a
pleasure to answer letters for the small percentage of students who make
poor marks, who think it is smart to cut classes, and who are unreliable in
For the past several years, the average mark for all students in Alameda
High School in all subjects has been closer to a "B" than to a HC". Any
student can determine his position in the school in relation to other stu-
dents by an examination of his marks. If he has more "A's" and "B's" than
"C's',, he is better or at least equal to the average student. If he has more
'fC's" than UBB", he will fall below the average.
Absence from school causes more poor marks than any other single rea-
son. A student cannot do good work when he has a poor attendance record.
The Work in a class goes forward each day. A student who is often absent
soon finds himself behind in his lessons and is likely to lose interest. Regu-
lar attendance and reasonable application to school work will assure almost
any student good marks. Home study is absolutely necessary for the stu-
dent who takes heavy courses and who wants to make recommending
marks for college.
A good high school record is probably the best investment a student can
make. It will pay high dividends in the years ahead. Make your high school
To Mrs. LeHew, faculty adviser, Kenneth Smith, editor, and to the
ACORN Staff, I express my deep appreciation and thanks for the splendid
manner in which they have worked together to make the 1943 ACORN a
success. They have overcome many difficulties and have quietly and effi-
ciently published an ACORN of which we can all be proud.

The fall term of 1942 was the most trying term ever faced by an A. S. A.
H. S. administration. The Alameda student body was forced to face the
fact that the United States of America was at War with the Axis and school
was not to be "as usual."
President Dean Hamilton arranged some splendid meetings for the
pleasure of the students.
A highlight of this administration Was the enlistment of our president,
Dean Hamilton, in the United States Navy. Dean was called to active
duty shortly before his term of office expired. Vivian Ursin, vice-president,
completed the term as president. She filled her office admirably as both
students and faculty will testify. Recording Secretary Bob Burke, con-
scientiously fulfilled the duties of his office and, also, presented the student
body with a new leather minute book to be used by future recording secre-
taries. Jack Turner, financial secretary, achieved the "impossible" when
he announced that for the first time in many years the student body was
paid up one hundred percent for student card dues. Ed Fry was a fine and
spirited yell leader. Ed's fine leadership, the support and yells of the
students, and the splendid coaching of Frank Collin, inspired the football
team to capture second place in the A.C.A.L.
The officers of the A.S.A.H.S. for the fall 1942 Wish to thank the student
faculty committee, both boards of control, the administrative board and
all persons who helped make this an outstanding administration.

In the spring term of 1943 the administration promised to secure enter-
taining student meetings and to promote athletic events. Each ofiicer has
helped to fuliill this promise. Ed Fry's fine spirit and ability as a leader
assured a successful administration, Maxine Brown, our popular and cap-
able vice-president, was always ready to help in any Way possible, Bin
Randolph kept accurate minutes, Connie Catton Worked hard for a 100 70
student body, Bill Cooper provided lots of spirit and was a fine yell leader.
The Student-Faculty Committee receives our thanks for the assistance
given us in securing entertaining student meetings. Among the outstanding
meetings were the Government Island Coast Guard Band Concert, the
student talent program, the 21 7th Coast Artillery Band Concert, the enter-
tainment by the Camp Ashby Singers, and the program by the Blind Asso-
ciation which was climaxed by the remarkable performance of Pierce Knox
at the Xylophone.
We Wish to thank all the committees and organizations for the splendid
help given us in the past term. We especially Want to thank each member
of the student body for his fine cooperation.

As Freshmen, we, the Class of June, 1943, were dazed and somewhat
awed by the immensity of the buildings and the complexity of high school
life. However, through the kind help of advisers and teachers, we soon
became adjusted andlproceeded to make ourselves a necessary part of all
school activities. We were consoled by the fact that our new principal, Mr.
Bryan, could also be called a " Froshf' Phil Coney was our president during
both the Low and High Freshman terms.
Activities in our Sophomore year included the "Scotch Hopf' which was
ably managed by Barbara Roth, Shirley Kihn, Bob Burke, and Noel Smith.
We elected Jack WOOdf1H president-in our ZA term and Eddie Fry presi-
dent in the ZB term.
Then came the time which is looked forward to by all students, when we
could proudly say, "Pm an upperclassmanfi In football we had Ernie Kell-
berg, Pete Christie, Buzz Roberts, Bill Cooper, and Phil Coneyg in base-
ball we were represented by Dell Hall, Vern Hall, Jim Pingree, Bob Mc-
Creery, and Ray French, who also played Varsity Basketball, in swimming
by Charles Dorr and Bob Youngg in track by Ralph Dolan, Bob Arm-
strong, Bruce Rodgers, Dick Millar and Bob Saxtong in golf, by Eddie Fry,
Bob Unthank, Ernie Kellberg, George Randolph, Paul Cox and john
Roach. Our Junior Year was finished off successfully, with the Jungle Prom
which was managed by Paul Cox, ably assisted by Phil Coney and Barbara
von Schmidt. Jack Ludlam was the President of the class in our Low junior
term, Ernie Kellberg was president in our High Junior term.

We entered our Senior year with George Randolph our chief executive.
One of our first activities was the presentation of "George Washington
Slept Here," the most successful Senior Play ever presented in Alameda
High School. This production, under the able direction of Mr. Lloyd
Sisler and management of Paul Cox, Betty Van Den Bergh, and Phil
Coney, broke all records for the sale of tickets. The cast included Bob
Burke, Jeanne Cohn, Eddie Fry, Happy Matthews, Bruce Rodgers, Donna
McMillin, Bob McCreery, and Leo Collins. We had our traditional Senior
Picnic in our High Senior year, under the leadership of Paul Cox, at Lake
Anza and it was agreed by all that it was a picnic they would never forget.
Yes, We had a grand time, but We also studied. Fifteen of our classmates
are life members of the C.S.F., and a large number are members of the
Star and Key Society. Top honors go to Lena Caviglia, our valedictorian,
and to Barbara Ackley and to Paul Cox, who took second and third places
respectively, in a class whose average Was exceptionally high.
To the faculty advisors and to our other teachers, as Well as to Mr.
Bryan, should go the credit for our success. Throughout the entire four
years they have never refused to help and guide us in social and class
activities. To them, We express appreciation and thanks.

With the meekness and humility becoming freshmen, the Class of Jan-
uary 1944 entered Alameda High School. Who would recognize them as
the sponsors of the great Paradise Prom and that hit "Arsenic and Old
The Lollipop Hop, which promised to be a great success, was canceled
because of unexpected war conditions. It was being capably managed by
John Wendt and Shirley Brown.
The memorable Paradise Prom made up for the disappointment by
proving itself a complete linancial and social success. This was managed
by Ray Teakle and his co-manager was Jan Allgoewer.
Our next venture was to select the Broadway hit "Arsenic and Old Lacei'
as our unforgettable Senior Play. The cast included Theresa Chrisand, and
jean Morris as the two old maids, Dick Frost and Aileen Nielsen supplied

more humorous touch, while Bob Moss' likeness to Boris Karloff created a
hair-raising atmosphere. Directed by one of our class advisers, Mr. Sisler,
and managed by john Wendt and jackie Dufour, it was a record breaking
We not only excel in social activities but our class is also represented in
sports. Connie Catton, Ben Gintjee, Bill Priest and Ross Bedford are on
our undefeated tennis team. A1 Broughton and john Archibald are out-
standing in track and Pete Vallerga in football.
Our class advisers have helped us immensely in all our ventures. We
sincerely appreciate their assistance and counsel. Now as our four years
stay at Alameda High will soon draw to a close, we hope the classes after
us will have the good times that we have had here.

In September of 1940 another freshman class passed into the portals of
Alameda High School. At the time, it seemed they yvere just another group
of "scrubs,H but in the ensuing terms amazing changes took place. The
school traditions and standards began to mean more to the class of June '44
and soon they had absorbed the school spirit. The urge to achieve was cre-
ated and as a result many outstanding talents were displayed in athletics,
drama, and class politics.
l 44 l
Now, in our high junior year, another achievement has been added to
the score. The "Starlit Prom," given on April 30, was a huge success. The
manager Was Dan Rourke and the co-manager was Doris Pederson. Hon-
orable mention should be given to all the others who helped to put it over.
In our progress the class of '44 has learned to appreciate the helpful and
cooperative attitude of the Alameda High school faculty. -

The past year has been an outstanding one for us, the class of January,
1945. In the fall of 1942 We successfully presented the "SnoWilake Fling."
Thanks go to Don Ray and June Goltz for their fine Work as Managers.
Our main event this term was the "Junior Jive", an afternoon dansant
at which the chief attraction consisted of door prizes of two partly-filled
War Stamp books.
The boys in our class have taken part in a varied program of sports this
past year. Bill Orwig, A1 Van Dale, Harry Gonsalves, and Frank Reed
triumphed in football, Jack Weeden, Dick Fetherstonhaugh, Don Mehr-
tens, and Bruce Jennings are good swimmers, and Fred Von Bargen has
contributed his talent to the baseball team. Leo Kahn and Hugh Williams
Went out for track, and Frank Reed is on the tennis team.
Several of our girls are also taking an active part in sports. This term
Virginia Heseman won her Block A, which requires much hard work.
Now that We are upper classmen we plan to take an even more active
part in student body affairs. We look forward to presenting our Prom next
term and to the time when we will become Seniors.

The class of June, 1945, has become one of the most active classes in the
school. We have participated in as many class activities as were open to us.
We have among our members many who are active in school sports.
These include joe Kaney, who has proved himself an outstanding athlete
by becoming the high point man on our basketball team. Donald Pries,
Fred Terry, and Jin McQuaid were also members of the baseball team.
Many from our class participated in the presentation of "Rio Rita."
We presented the semi-annual Sophomore Hop, "The Carefree Capers,"

with much success. Donald Pries was the able manager, and Jane Formosa
was the co-manager. Maralyn Merril's all-girl orchestra furnished excel-
lent music and despite shortages and other difliculties resulting from the
War, the dance Was of great benefit to the class and to all who attended.
All those in our class have enjoyed our activities and they hope that the
next two years will be as successful as the last two have been.

Each semester's activities in which we have participated have been so
successful that We can enjoy the assurance of truly great achievement in
the coming years.
This term our class events have included a dansant, the "Bunny Hop",
and a gardenia sale, both of which were brilliant successes.
Our class boasts many outstanding members in the field of sports. On

September 14, 1942, marked a big day in the lives of each and every one
of the members of the class of june, 1946, for We entered high school at that
time. On that day we were a little coy and not as "big time" as We Were
when We graduated from grammar school the previous june.
But, as the Weeks passed, We gained confidence, and elected our execu-
tive committee. Starting out with high spirits, the class staged a dansant
which was both financially and socially a success. Our class made another
showing by being 100 '72 student body members. As one may easily see, all
of us take interest in school affairs.

During our 1B term We felt a little bigger and We gave a dansant at noon.
This dansant put a considerable amount of money into our treasury. We
were 100 76 studeent body members this term also.
With the frne class spirit which prevails and the splendid cooperation
of our class advisors, We, the Class of june 1946, know that We will be able
to uphold the high standard of our school and that We will play a promin-
ent and Worthy part in school activities.

The low freshman class has made a start that promises to make it a great
success in Alameda High. Many of the students have turned out for sports
and have Won recognition. Among these are Phil Thormahlen, for football,
and Wilbur Ramos, for baseball. These boys really have the school spirit
and we all Wish them lots of luck in the future.
All of us are enjoying every minute here and appreciate the cooperation
that the rest of the students have given to us in this our hrst semester at
Alameda High. We will strive to keep up the spirit, teamwork and efii-
ciency the other students have shown us. At present all of us have Worked
hard and are looking forward to vacation.

This year we have published a war-time ACORN. Because of scarcities
and priorities, some features in the book have had to be lengthened while
others were shortened. Many government regulations have come at crucial
times and have made it necessary to alter plans again and again. In fact,
the staff developed the elasticity of thought so characteristic of the present
day American housewife. They simply did not plan until they had asked
the question, "What will be available?"
The staff has Worked in many fields but We have all had the same goal
in mind, the successful completion of the 1943 ACORN. Now, as the last
copy goes to press, We shall confine our Worries to wondering Whether or
not the book will really reach the students on the day planned.
To the business manager, Win Currier, I Want to extend my greatest
thanks for the orderly and efficient Way in which he has handled the many
business problems of the ACORN. I wish to thank Mrs. Lerljew, ou faculty
adviser, for her useful advice and untiring work on the'book. A'l , I ,wish
to thank Mr. Bryan for the encouragement and support which he has given
us during the Whole time We have been Working. There are many others
who have helped us by Writing articles, by taking pictures, and by giving
advice when it was needed.
Often a book of this type is compiled by the staff and students have little
to do with its production. This year innumerable students have assisted in
many Ways and We feel this 1943 ACORN represents the students. '

This past year the Oak Leaf has enjoyed considerable success and has
distributed more issues than for many years previous. This greater number
of issues was due in great part to the efforts of our advertising staffs, Whose
hard Work made our generous A.S.A.H.S. appropriation last longer. Thus,
for the first time, an issue was put on a profit basis, also, another first was
realized on June 9 with the eight page issue, the first of its kind ever pub-
lished. Under the capable managership of Editors Cox, Currier and Ran-
doph, and their hard working Managerial aind Editorial Staffs, the Oak
Leaf can boast of one of the best years it has ever experienced.
The players of the drama classes have been very busy during the past
year, giving performances of some of the most popular plays that have
All dramatic productions are under the direction and supervision of Mr.
Lloyd Sisler, an excellent teacher and director. Mr. Sisler, with the assis-
tance of his students, design the costumes and with the help of Mr. Bert

Students spend the time in the first semester of Drama in acquiring some
of the fundamentals of dramatics such as improving their speech, develop-
ing the habit of better posture and understanding the principles that ,go
into making a young actor. The second term is spent in actual practice,
performing in one-act plays, such as "Comes Romance" and "Life Eter-
nal," which were presented before the student body and were enthusi-
When the Drama and Music departments combine their efforts, they
usually produce smash hits such as the beautiful Christmas Pageant of last
year and the very colorful operetta 'fRio Rita." The music for both of these
productions was directed by Mrs. Hazel Hunter, the head of the music
.' V,-" ij Y
Two very good senior plays "George Washington Slept Here" and
"Arsenic and Old Lace" were presented. Both of these plays will be re-
membered as dramatic successes.
Students in the drama classes are making a definite contribution to
civilian morale in their production of entertaining plays. Several boys,
former drama students now in the armed service, have Written of having
participated in camp shows, thus putting their dramatics experience to
a very practical use.
In spite of the success of our recent offerings, the students and drama
coach look forward to future productions as an opportunity for progress.

HATS UPF Tll UUH IIUAIIHES
Though several members of the coaching staff either enlisted or Were
called into the nation's armed forces, they have been replaced by others
who have been equally successful in the quest for Alameda championships
in the A.C.A.L. Virgil Gilcrease, Chris Freeman and Chet Millett entered
our fighting forces, though Mr. Millett returned to his former post after
being released from the service.
The present physical education department consists of Lewis jolly, who
heads the staff and coaches track, Chet Millett, baseball mentor and
assistant football coach, Frank Collin, who turned out excellent football
and basketball teamsg Frank Young, coach of the swimming and boxing
teams, and Stan Schnepple, who handled the tennis and HB" basketball
Never before has there been such a difficult task confronting the coaches
throughout the country and Alameda High is indeed fortunate in having
men with the ability and skill of our present staff.
For the preparation given the students for the crisis at hand and for
their policy of developing clean play and sportsmanship, We sincerely
say-HATS OFF TO OUR COACHES! I
The fighting Hornets of Alameda'High had one of the most successful
seasons ever earned on an Alameda gridiron. Coach Frank Collin, in his
first year at the Alameda High school, was greeted by several returning
lettermen and by many good men sent up from Chris Freeman's reserve
team. Collin developed them into a fighting squad that was good enough
to take second place in the rugged A.C.A.L. competition.
After subduing San Mateo and jefferson High schools in practice games,
the Hornets trounced Richmond High by the decisive score of 18 to 6. The
following week Alameda went from one end of the field to the other While
being held to a scoreless tie by a scrappy, underdog Hayward eleven.
Alamedafs traditional rival, Berkeley, held the high-flying Hornets to
seven points while one of the strongest lines in Alameda history forced the
Yellowjackets to score their only touchdown on a pass. A blocked conver-
sion gave Alameda the victory.
The real climax of the season came the afternoon when Alameda lost
to an unbeaten Piedmont squad by a 14 to 7 score. A disputed touchdown
A E781 '
assured the Highlanders of the heart-breaking game over the inspired
Hornets. Suffering from injuries, Alameda still controlled the ball a large
portion of the struggle.
Suffering a let-down on the Albany 'Crock-pile," the Hornets managed
to win only by a pass in the end zone shortly before the gun sounded. A
post season game at Lodi High resulted in a scoreless tie.
Three Alameda seniors, Bryant Wong f two yearsl and Frank Ratto,
co-captains, and Tony Ratto made the All-County Honorary Team. Had
it not been for injuries, several more might have been selected. Senior let-
termen not returning for next year's squad are Bryant Wong, Frank Ratto,
Tony Ratto, Ralph Dolan, Dick Millar, Bob Yoas, Will Watt, Rudy
Taube, jim Pingree, Vic Lagorio, Ernie Kellberg, Harry Hedges, Richard
Gonsalves, Pete Christie, and Paul Bowler.
Next year's team will be built around lettermen Bill Orwig, Carl La-
gorio, Pete Valerga, Al Van Dale, and Harry Gonzales.

Alameda I-Iigh's varsity Basketball Team captured the A.C.A.L. Cham-
pionship after trouncing their co-champions, Berkeley, 39-19 in their last
game before an hilarious home crowd.
Coach Frank Collin, who succeeded Virgil Gilcrease, did a very line job
in producing a championship team.
The Hornets were sparked to seven Wins out of eight games by five
outstanding players: joe Kaney, high scorer of the A.C.A.L.g Bob Wuest-
hoff, a steady forward, Ray French, all-county guard, Wes Robinson, and
Don "Duckie" Pries. Much support came from: Fred Terry, Bert Guis-
ness, Stuart Inman, Ed King, Carl Ketchum, Jim McQuaid and Bill Wirt.
Only three players will be lost by graduation: Captain Ray French, Ed
King and Carl Ketchum. Hence, prospects for a championship next season
look good, with added strength from the "BU team.
The "B" team placed second in league competition, with Spangler,
Pereira, Goltz, Babcock, Gans and others under the capable leadership of
Stan Schnepple, also new to the Alameda coaching staff.

The Alameda Varsity Baseball team became A.C.A.L. Co-champs by
Winning all but two of their league games.
Their title defense began with a 4 to 1 victory over the Albany squad.
Next came a weird 15 to 9 win over a scrappy Berkeley team. Hayward
was the next team to fall before the Hornets, and were defeated by a 7 to 1
Alameda then hit a mid-season slump and dropped to a co-champion-
ship. The first of the reversals came at the hands of an inspired Albany
team, the score standing at 4 to 2.
The next game was evena more miserable defeat. It was a wild tussle
played at the Berkeley 'fDust Bowl" and ended in an 8 to 7 victory. Ala-
meda came to life just in time to end the season by drubbing Hayward
7 to O.
With three first string players from the undefeated 1942 team back to
play their last season, the Hornets were definitely the 'fteam to beat"
throughout the season.
The starting lineup consisted of Bob Curlett, catcher, Fred Von Bargen,
pitcher, Don Pries, first base, Captain Bob McCreery, second base, Jim
Pingree, left held, Ray French, centerheld and pitcher, and Carl Ketchum,
George Childe and Jack Pereira, right field.
Coach Chet Millett deserves much credit in coaching his second cham-
pionship team in his two years at the school.
The prospect for next year's team is once again very good, as only
French, Pingree, McCreery, Ketchum and Pereira are not returning.

Following several postponements due to bad weather, Alameda's 1943
track team is rapidly gaining strength. With a meet against Hayward and
the A.C.A.L. finals to be held after the ACORN goes to press, the Hornets
are determined to beat Hayward and take one of the first three places in
the A.C.A.L. meet.
Two outstanding men developed by Coach Lewis Jolley are Ralph
"Moose" Dolan and Al Broughton, who placed first in the shot put and
pole vault, respectively, in the N.C.S. meet at Stanford. Consistent point
Winners for Alameda have been: '
Hugh Williams, in the hurdles and broad jump,
Dick Millar, in the 440 yard rung

Frank Deines, in the pole vault,
Lloyd Wagner, distance man,
Leo Kahn, in the sprintsg
George Barry, Ray Teakle, John Archibald, Walt Jensen,

With Coach Frank Young, former middle-
Weight at U.C.L.A., serving as instructer, a box-
ing team has been organized at Alameda High.

forts, there is a possibility of inter-scholastic
competition for the squad next year.
Members of the team are Wes Robinson,
Tom Conlon, Bert joy, Bob Lovvthian, Ernie
Butler, Ronald Quinn, jack Cook, Bob Faria,
and Carl Rose.
A1ameda's swimming team placed second to Berkeley in the A.C.A.L.,
they were overcome by sheer weight of numbers. Frank Young, who re-
placed Chris Freeman, did a iine job of coaching. The best performance of
the year was by Jack Weeden, who won the 100 yard back stroke in the
A.C.A.L. meet. Other Hornet mermen were:
Bud Guisness, who placed second in the 50 yard freestyle at the
Bruce Jennings, 100 yard freestyle,
jim Shields, 220 yard freestyle,
Ted Sawyer, 100 yard freestyle,
Rocky Mountain, 100 yard breast stroke,
Warren Parkinson, 220 yard freestyle,
Bill Simpson, 100 yard breast stroke,
John Correa, 50 yard freestyleg
Chuck King, in the class "B" diving.
With the N.C.S. meet to take place after the ACORN goes to press, our
swimmers will close a very short season, which has been marked by can-
celled meets and other difiicultiesg however the boys have obtained fine
results when up against stiff competition and prospects are very bright for
next year's team.
Alameda, the undefeated championship
team, had the most successful season ever ex-
perienced by a Hornet net team.
The team was lead by Connie Catton, num-
ber one singles player, who completed his sec-
ond consecutive undefeated season. The first
doubles team of Dick Strehlow and Ray Lewis
also Went undefeated in A.C.A.L. competition.
The team was expertly coached by Stan
Schnepple, who has come to the Alameda coach-
ing staff only this year. Not since 1936 have the
Hornets had a championship squad.
Aside from Catton, Strehlow, and Lewis,
other members of the team are Bob Mason,
Sherman Keck, Ben Gintjee, and Frank Reed,
in the singles, and Ross Bedford and Bill Priest,
who complete the doubles.

This term the Spanish Club celebrated the twentieth anniversary of its
founding. Each year since its beginning, the Club has been an active organ-
ization with a good number of students of Spanish taking part in the
meetings. This year, however, the Club has the largest enrollment in its
history, with more than a hundred students holding membership cards.
The meetings of the year have been up to the standards set by previous
groups. The meeting with the largest attendance of the Fall term was the
annual Christmas party, with entertainment typical of a Mexican Christ-
During the Spring term the outstanding meeting was the one held on
April 14, Pan American Day. Among those who contributed to its success
were Robert Coon, Maxine Brown, and jack St. Claire. The last meeting
of the term was the showing of a new color film of Mexico.
The officers of the year merit the thanks of the members for their con-
stant efforts to provide interesting meetings.

held a very successful boxing match featuring Alameda High School
boxers. We had several interesting meetings including some sports talks,
and an Army Air Corps picture. The Menls Association held a very success-
ful dansant this spring. We hope that future lVIen's Association presidents
will be as active as the last two have been.
