BRADLEY WILLIAM WYATT, Jn.
THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF ALAM1-:Im HIGH SCHOOL
FUQQWORD . ..
Yet much remains to conquer still 5 peace hath her victories no less renown'd than
The war years are overg yet remains a world divided by conflict in ideologies. We
must prepare ourselves for our place in this idea torn world. Of the greatest
importance to all of us is our heritage as American citizens, the right to vote. In
order to vote intelligently, we must be well-educated in all fields. Those of us
attending the higher institutions of learning will ensure our heritage by added
understanding of cultures and governments, and those who are entering the field
of business' immediately will enrich their education by meeting other people and
by observing closely the happenings of state and nation. In this, the second year
after victory, we can envision our future. We who are planning to attend unive1'si-
ties and colleges need not interrupt our scholastic careers with service in our armed
forces, and those entering business will with renewed security build foundations
for the future. Let us now prepare ourselves by increasing our knowledge of the
American way so that as we become the leaders of tomorrow, our background in
the American tradition will be indelibly engraved on our minds. As we are planning
for the future, so should we lay away remembrances of youth. Witll this fact in
mind, we of the 194-7 ACORN have tried to compile an annual that will in later years
bring back the joy and pleasure that is our youth.
BRADLEY WYATT, JR.
DR. GEORGE C. THOMPSON
Prinripal Alameda High School
1904 - 1939
Let those of us who down the years have felt
The touch of Dr. Thompson on our lives
And have been better men and women for it
Attest his right proudly to say with Horace:
Exegi monumentum acre perennius
regalique situ pyramidum altius,
quod non ilnber edax, non Aquilo impotens
possit diruere aut innumerabilis
annorum series et fuga temporum.
Non olnnis moriar.
Carmina: 3, 30
Now have I reared a monument more durable than brass,
And one that doth the royal scale of pyramids surpass,
Nor shall defeated Aquila destroy, nor soaking rain,
Nor yet the countless tide of years, nor seasons in their train
Not all of me shall die.
Translation by William Ewart Gladstone
My message this year is one of thanks and appreciation to all of the students and
faculty members who have made this a banner year for Alameda High School..We
started out in September with a large enrollment and in a very short time the
financial secretary was able to announce that the school was one hundred per cent
in student body memberships. That announcement was important because it
meant that all were working as a unit for the welfare of the school. It meant that
the students had confidence in their elected officers.
Our first football games demonstrated that we had an outstanding team and that
the students were solidly behind it. Our rooters attended the games in large
numbers, had lots of fun, gave the team the necessary inspiration, and, what is most
important, conducted themselves exceptionally well. We received numerous
compliments from the other A.C.A.L. schools concerning our spirit and our con-
duct at the games. The basketball season, which resulted in a championship, gave
us further opportunity to demonstrate our loyalty and enthusiasm in a sportsman-
like manner. I congratulate the teams and thank the students and faculty members
who helped to make the football and basketball seasons so successful. My congratu-
lations are also extended to the teams which are just starting their league competi-
tion as this is written.
The student body oflicers all worked hard to secure the very best talent that was
obtainable for student meetings. The Administrative Board used good judgment
in handling the funds of the school and in supplying the teams with new equip-
. BRYAN S
MESSAGE . . .
ment.New football uniforms, new basketball uniforms, and new baseball uniforms
were purchased at a cost of more than three thousand dollars. Another worthwhile
investment is the new 16mm moving picture camera, which enables us to keep a
valuable pictorial record of our athletic activities.
The two Boards of Control have served efficiently and well in handling meetings
and in helping to solve the traffic congestion in the hallways and on the stairs. They
deserve and receive our sincere thanks.
The student body officers for the spring semester are carrying forward the fine
work of their predecessors and are reaching out for new goals. The Service Council
under the leadership of the President of the Associated Students is creating for us
a vast storehouse of good will among the merchants of Park Street. I especially
want to commend them for their work and to thank the students who are coop-
erating with them.
Excellent service has been given the school by our bands, our orchestras, our glee
clubs, our choir, our dramatic groups, our auditorium staff, our Oak Leaf staff and
our ACORN staff. The classes and the clubs, the Girls' Association and the Men's
Association, the athletic groups, and the scholarship societies have all contributed
to making this a happy and successful year.
Let us all continue to work to make our school a better school so that we can
speak of Alameda High School with pride at all times.
To Miss Brosnan, faculty adviser, Bradley Wyatt, editor, J im Lennox, business
manager, and to the ACORN Staff, I extend my thanks and appreciation for
handling the difficult task of producing the 1947 ACORN.
Your representatives for Fall '46
If I say so myself, were quite a nice mix.
Don and Bimbo planned lots of good
And many good speakers paid us their

including Mr. Wetmore from the Key
Bob got his dues in a skip and a hop,
And even a rate at Leo,s Toy Shop.

A. S. A. H. S
The spring term of 1947 was no doubt one of thc most outstanding semesters in
A.H.S. history. With the top quality leadership of President Bob Baronian, always
striving to his utmost to bring the student body an unparalleled term, we have had
a most successful semester. Vice President Virginia Gerkc, an inspiring figure at
our meetings, has taken a large part in our student meetings, and has assisted
President Baronian immeasurahly. Recording Secretary Terry Reed has con-
scientiously filled the duties of his office. Financial Secretary Les Sachs has set an
unbelievable mark in achieving 100 per cent student dues within the first month,
and in procuring numerous new student rates. Yell Leader Keith I-Iarold's spark-
ling personality and untiring energy added greatly to each meeting.
We were indeed fortunate in having a wide variety of excellent entertainment,
the more outstanding being Mr. Johnny O'Bricn, the Pomona Glee Club, and our
annual student talent show.
Through the Ad Board, the Student Faculty Committee, the Men's and Wo1nen's
Boards of Control, this semester has been a most successful one. As we have dis-
covered at the Alameda County High School conclave at Albany, Alameda High
School ranks tops in the Bay area. On behalf of the administration I wish to thank
each member of the student body for his fine cooperation shown during this

Una destinatio, viae diversae . . . for four years we have traveled the many ways,
searching for that one destination. Today we have reached our goal: graduation is
around the corner. How did our class accomplish this task? The evidence follows:
We have given a number of eminently successful events. During our freshman
year we gave our Election Dansant with which we obtained a good start in financial
affairsg then we gave the Hop Scotch Hop, which provided fun and a pleasant
evening for everyone there. During our junior year we gave the Cinderella Prom,
which was a great success, largely because of the efforts and originality of the
manager and co-manager, Bill Thompson and Peggy Ethertong then we presented
our senior play, "What a Lifef' a light comedy, produced under the direction of
Miss Marian Los Kamp. Those who attended enjoyed the play and appreciated the
work done by Rudy Multz and Jean Mclntosh in the leading roles, as well as the
fine support furnished by Lois Riley, Brad Wyatt, Dick Jennings, Gordon Floyd,
Dean Berg, Nancy Etherton, Bob Baronian, Gadgie Hicks, Jack Shrieber, Jim
Cundall, and Patty Miller.
A number of our members have become well known throughout the school. Bob
Baronian, Virginia Gerke, and Keith "Tiger" Harold were president, vice presi-
dent, and yell leader respectively of our student body. Rudy Multz and Nancy

To our faculty advisers and to our other teachers as well as to Mrs. Hall and Mr.

to all, we leave our best wishes and fond farewell.

Wve, the class of February, 194-8, were once bewildered freshmen, roaming through
the halls in search of an elevator and being sent hither and yon hy unfeeling
As our first money making project we presented a noon dansant with Russ
Rahenau, manager, and Eddie Leal, co-manager. It was a huge success hoth finan-
cially and socially.
In our sophomore year we gained a little confidence and began uribbingw tlIe
timid freshmen. Wlien we were high sophomores, we presented the 'IATOMIC
HOP," capahly managed by Art Alwen and Donna Pawlasek.
Our great venture came when we were upper classmen. In our 3B term we pre-
sented the "FLAlVIINGO" Prom under the lIlal'lagCIIlCIlt of Frank Stafford and
Barbara Fisher. It was a success and added a tiny sum to our treasury.

Rabeneau, Frank Nereu, and John Dronkers in foothallg Harry Wetllerald in

At this time we should like to express our appreciation to our class advisers.

Time marches on! We are now Low Juniorsg and if you notice that we strut a little
as we walk through the halls, it must be because we are proud of having reached
the enviable status of upperclassmen.
In the fall term, when Rich Janusch was our president and Florence Dobson
our vice president, we staged the Wfinsel Twirlf' It was a beautiful dance and an
enjoyable one, but tlIe expenses ran high and our class treasury lIad to stand the

After having successfully completed our freshman and sophomore years at Ala-
Ineda High, we have shown and proved our high standards as students.
During our sophomore terms, our presidents, Ken Randall, and Warren Everson.
have given us both successful and interesting meetings.
The movies we had this term really supported our treasury and helped the class
of June ,49 give the hest Soph Hop Alameda High has ever known.
Under the spotlight of sports, Frank McElheinney and Tom Ginley have already
helped us reach our peak.
Now that we have reached the halfway mark in our high school career, we have
made our lIlHI'kQ and in the future we hope to have lnore social activities and hring
forth more leaders in sports.
During the coming years, we hope to he ahle to maintain our high standards.
We look forward to the brilliant future that awaits the class of June, 1949.

Just one year ago this spring, the class of 1950 entered Alameda High School.
Wie were filled with school spirit, and we gave our first class activity-our IA
movie. This activity heing successful financially we followed hy having two class
meetings, hoth proving entertaining and worthwhile.
Although our class, as a whole, has yet to make a namc for itself, wc are proud of
our many individual mcmhers who are making A records, who arc going out lor
athletics, who are participating in the student body, and who are aiding Alameda
High to keep up the high standards for which it has always lxeen known.
Our only hope is that the class of 1950 will become very active in all the affairs of
Alameda High and that our contributions to the welfare of our school will he
hoth great and lasting.

The elass of June. '50, came to Alameda High looking forward to a grand time and
a sueeessful four years.
Our low freshman year, under the leadership of Dick Bartell, our president.
went hy very rapidly and we were soon high freshmen.
With Harold Cox as our president, the high freshman movie was sueeessful. and
so we had our first real activity.
During hasehall season almost half of the B hasehall team eonsisted of high
freshman hoys. Wye had three hoys on the haskethall team and several hoys in
traek. We also had an encouraging turn out for foothall. The high freshman elass
has an unusually good turn out in all sports.
We plan to have a great number of activities and in this way make ourselves one
ofthe leading elasses of the sehool.

As our table is finally cleared and the ACORN is on its way, we can sit back and
enjoy life again.
We ofthe 1947 ACORN staff have worked extremely hard at our many tasks. Most
of the credit, however, should go to Miss Brosnan who has pulled us out of many
difficult situations. Under her able hands and with the splendid cooperation of' the
members of the staff, the hook was assembled and sent on its way.
I want to thank the members of' the staff who have ut in man ' lone hours re-
P 3 D P
paring the book aIId also those students who are too numerous to mention who
have contributed to the success of' the ACORN. We ho e that Ou, the readers, will
derive as much joy from reading this annual as we have had in compiling it.

returned from the Navy.

When you think of the 1946 football team under 'gSoc" Socolofsky, remember
their size and how well they did and give a cheer.
After a bad start with Piedmont, Alameda finished the remainder of the season
without losing a game. The boys, almost all seniors, fought hard, turning in a fifie
season, one of which we can all be proud. Alameda placed six players on the
honorary all-county team and two on the North Coast team. Len Ratto, Jack.
Spangler, and honorary captain George Lagorio were together on the all-county
team. Phil Thormahlen, Dayton Foote, and Al Diaz were on the second team. ,lack
Spangler was the North Coast end, and George Lagorio received honorable men-
tion for his work at quarterback.
Graduating seniors are Bob Braund, ,lack Caton, Dan Cooper, Divo Dianda,
Floyd Gregg, Leo Halverson, Keith Harold, Don Hiniker, Bill Lane, George
Lagorio, Ray Lehmkuhl, Jack Perata, Ed Rexinger, ,lack Simone, .lack Spangler,
Ira Stogner, Leon Tager, Phil Thormahlen, Les Tomei, Gerald Wfarburton. and
The team gave the grandstand a lot of excitement and worry last year causing
pandemonium several times as they came from behind to win.
Those returning lettermen are Al Diaz, John Dronkers, Dayton Foote. George
Marceline, Frank Nereu, and Len Ratto.

This year the Cadet Corps, under the very inspiring leadership of Lt. Col. James
L. Baker, has intensified its training and added several new theoretical subjects to
widen the scope of R.O.T.C. training.
The purpose of R.O.T.C. training is to develop leadership, discipline and make
more useful citizens. This is carried on hy leadership drill and theoretical classes,
such as Military Teaching Methods, World Military Situation, Individual Weap-
ons, Military History of the United States, and others. These classes are conducted
hy Regular Army instructors assisted by cadet instructors.
For theoretical purposes the Corps is divided into three groups: The First Year
which covers elementary courses and orients the Cadet with esprit de corps. The
Second Year takes up tactical work, and prepares the cadet for his duties as a Non-
Commissioned Officer and Officer. The Third and Fourth year cadets are grouped
together for advanced tactical training.
Activities in the Unit include a Sword and Shield Society for Officers and Spon-
sors and a Non-Coms' Cluh for Non-Commissioned Officers. There is also a rifle
team which is open to all cadets.
On April 17 the Corps made a very interesting trip to the Benicia Arsenal. The
all-day trip included a visit to the ammunition dumps, an inspection of the small
arms shop, where we observed test firing of various weapons. At the optical shop
we were shown how range finders, automatic gun controls and other complicated
instruments were repaired. The Benicia Arsenal Fire Department also put on a
very snappy fire drill.
We are hoping to obtain honor school rating during our annual Federal Inspec-
tion for the eighth consecutive year.
