It takes great character to devote many hours of work to a
first rate yearbook and yet remain humble.
For his sound advice, patience, and understanding, for his
unselfish yielding of rnany hours during the past six years to
produce informative and enjoyable yearbooks, we gratefully
dedicate the 1960 Acorn to Mr. Jack Hallock. -

BOARD OF EDUCATION-left to right: Mr. Walter V. Howe, Mrs. Lee Cavunuugh,
Dr. Stuurt Stephens, Dr. Donald D. Lum, Presidentp Mr. A. Hubbard, Jr.
Our Knowledge Grows Under Wise Leadership
The Board of Education is composed of five members nom-
inated by the Mayor and appointed by the City Council for
terms of live years each. These terms are so arranged that one
member is appointed each year.
The Board has the duty of establishing policies, plans, pro-
grams, and procedures for the schools. It can execute contracts.
It evaluates the general activities and educational program of
the entire school system. It delegates to the Superintendent of
Schools thc direct administration of the school system. He ex-
ecutes the policies which the board establishes.
The paragraphs above give the legal framework for what is
really a warmly human institution. The reality can never be
caught by statements of powers and functions in city charters
and state laws, for here we find a group ol men and women
serving their city and its parents and children. They serve
without compensation, through a fine sense of civic duty. They
give long hours of their time and thought to the task of pro-
viding the best possible school system. Their reward must comic
from the knowledge of duty accepted and performedg all too
often they are criticizedg all too seldom do they hear words of
praise. I hope you will join me in a feeling of gratitude and
appreciation to the members of our Board of Education.

Through Mr. MelI's Experience We Learn
The greatness of America may be manifested in
many ways, but ultimately the source of its greatness
is in the kinds of individuals who constitute the living
substance of our nation.
In this scientific and automation age which re-
quires excellence in achievement, thcre is still no
challenge more important than to give moral and
spiritual substance, direction, meaning, and objectiv-
ity to individual living.
The future calls for young people with a spirit of
inquiry. It calls for young people who are learning to
become self-disciplined and morally responsible. It
calls for them to identify, nurture. and wisely use
their talents. Young people need to deepen their
sense of urgency in developing their real competen-
cies that they might bcttcr serve the values which
have made possible their education and their freedom
The high school experiences and education of our
graduates will be a firm foundation upon which they
may build 'imeaningi' into their lives and give pur-
poseful direction to their future living. Our best
wishes for success go to every member of the class.
Through prose and pictures, this 1960 Acorn has
delightfully captured the substance of our high schooll
living and depicted the myriad activities of our stu-
dents, faculty and staff. I extend my personal thanks
and appreciation to Sue Martin and Richard Avan-
zino, editor and business manager: to their co-editors
and staff, and especially to Mr. Tingwall and Mr.
White, faculty advisers, for their many hours of hard
work and devoted efforts.

highlights of the term.

Dr. Snell. one of our new administrators, is well
liked by both the students and the faculty of A.H.S.
Dr. Snell is a friendly and very sincere person. He
is right to the point and always willing to give advice
on any subject.
Dr. Snell is the boys' counselor and guidance di-
rector: he manages all student affairs, advises the
student body officers, and helps plan student meet-
ings. He is in charge of scheduling classes, is on the
Student-Faculty Committee, and is the administrative
advisor of the MflHiS Board of Control.

Mr. Butler, Mr. Tovey, Miss di Vecchio and Mrs. Thom, counselors,
look over some school papers.
Many students are unaware of the numerous good
deeds which the counselors perform every day just
as a matter of routine. Some students never consider
the many ways in which the counselors help them.
The counselors, Miss diVecchio, Mrs. Howell, Mrs.
Tham, Mr. Butler, and Mr. Bartley, head counselor,
spend half of their days in their offices, giving the
student's problems their individual attention. WVhether
the problem be big or small, the counselors do their
best to help the student solve it.
The counselors also try to guide each student to the
courses the student will need so that he may either go
directly from school to a job or fulfill the entrance
requirements of the college of his choice. If a student

is interested in applying for a scholarship, his coun-
selor will be there to lend a helping hand.
Very often a student, nearing the end of his or her
high school years, is undecided as to what he or she
wants to be. The student's interests and skills can be
brought out by the vocational interest examinations
given by Mr. Tovey. head of the testing department.
Mr. Tovey is also in charge of testing students for
the numerous jobs available and testing applicants
for the various scholarships offered. Beyond any
doubt, testing is a necessary and important part of
high school life.
Indeed, the counselors are the people who guide
students through the first few weeks of high school
and who continue their influence until graduation.

First We Learn To Express Ourselves
There are many reasons for taking English at
A.H.S. 'llhe main one is that three years of English
are required by state law. However, most students
realize that English is necessary to get them out ol'
the .state of semi-literacy in which they are left by
TV Westerns and radio disc jockeys.
ln literature students are taken from the Alerchamf
of Venice, fearful of losing a pound of his flesh,
through Tall' of Taro Cities, Diekens' View of the
French Revolution, to Shakespeare's niasterpiecie,
Students study grammar from the structure of
the simple sentence to the eomplexities of the com-
English 4B combines these two studies while help-
ing the student attain that complete mastery of the
English language which is required by the Subject A
For those students who have good English grades
and who wish to Continue their study of literature,
there is a special Honors English course, taught by
the head of the English Department, Dr. Rediger.
Dr. Rediger discusses a point of fine literature with his Honors English Class.

people do not realize how often they use it. Even the
srnall hoy uses mzxthernatics when he decides how
many pieces of gum, at 21 penny each. he can huy

'llhe purpose of the Nlathernatics Department at
A.H.S. is to lend students from this simple, everyday
math to the complexities of calculus. 'l'o carry out
this ideal, the depzirtnient offers four years of higher
mathematics and one-half year of Honors Math,
which introduces calculus.

For students who do not wish to take these courses
the department ofliers one year of math and one-half
year of Senior Math, so that students may review the
basic procedures. College Prep Math is offered to
high seniors who have had only two years of mathe-
ticsg this course enables thern to brush up on math
for college entrance exarninutions.

History Tells Of Cfher Times And Trends
A good future is based on a proper understanding
of the world, its people. and its problems. Social
Studies and Modern History teach about our world,
its geography and its history and the effects that
these things have on current world history.
In United States History students learn about
the United States from its founding to the present
day. They gain an understanding of the problems
of the United States today and an appreciation of
how the country came to be as it is.
California History teaches about our state, its
history, its government, and its current problems.
In Government and Politics students are taught
how their country is governed. 'l'hey learn about
current politics and the basic principles of our eco-
nomic system. They study the rights and privileges
of citizens, which are balanced by their duties and
responsibilities. The new lecture course, which is
experimental, prepares students for college. 'l'he
group is divided into three sections. Three days a
week the students are lecturedef fthe other two days
they go to their sections for discussion.
The history courses and Government and Politics
classes are preparing Alameda High School sill-
dents today to be responsible citizens in the modern
world of tomorrow.

We Acquire Vocational Skills From Shops
A.H.S. shop classes train students for jobs which
require manual skills. Shop classes last one or two
hours. ln the one hour shops, instruction is of-
fered in such things as woodworking, leather work-
ing, metal working, plastics, and electronics.
The two hour shops are radio shop, wood shop,
machine shop, and auto shop. The instructor of
auto shop uses one car which his pupils inspect and
repair, putting their mechanical know-how into
All shop classes, of course, teach the proper use
of the tools and materials involved and how to
operate various machines without getting one's
hands and possibly one's feet caught in one's work.
The most recent program that has been offered
is a wood shop for girls. This has proven to be quite
a successful course. The girls learn how to operate
:ill the equipment which is necessary for this par-
ticular class. They design, construct, and finish their

The Commercial Arts Department trains stu-
dents for any chosen profession to which it per-
tains. For instance, if one,s vocation entails a
knowledge of shorthand, he or she may receive in-
struction in an A.H.S. class.
Other subjects which are classified under the
heading of commercial arts are business math, typ-
ing, operation of business machines, office practice,
and transcription of dictation. These classes are
designed to prepare students for such vocations as
bookkeeping, secretarial work, clerical work, office
jobs, and stenographic work, respectively.
iques To Our Wisdom
Typing is one thing of which, at some time or
another, almost all students avail themselves, realiz-
ing that the ability to type is a convenient and use-
ful asset. The course of transcription, incidentally,
takes two periods-Hone for taking notes and another
for typing them out.
Many A.H.S. students take advantage of the
numerous and varied commercial arts, which pro-
vide a welcome opportunity and excellent training
for students planning to enter the business world
after graduation. '

Domestic Science Enriches Cur Background
Home economics, once known as "domestic sci-
encef, has now enlarged so much that a girl who
takes any of the courses offered will be well
equipped by it for a future of homemaking.
The girls get practical experience in the clothing
classes, in which they learn how to choose a suit-
able style, gain skill in the actual sewing of the
garment, and, when they become expert enough,
learn to tailor and make their own designs.
No home economics course is complete without
a foods class, and A.H.S. offers a thorough one.
Here the students are acquainted with the Hner
points of planning and cooking a tasty, nutritious
meal, of making attractive table settings and deco-
rations, of becoming a capable housekeeper, and
of being a charming hostess.
Thus each girl is prepared for her future, wheth-
er in business with homemaking as a sideline or at

Have you ever noticed that the most admired
persons usually have self-confidence and poise? Both
of these features can be acquired in the excellent

complete relaxation and self-assurance before an
audience. Students are given instructions in acting,
pantomiming, and in holding their audiences' in-

classes as well, especially when oral reports become

P.E. Provides A Pleasanl Break
Many times students are heard saying that P.E.

change in the daily routine of classes. It is an op-
portunity to leave behind the complexities of the
classroom and to step into a world where energy
and spirited competition are primary.
For the fellows the choice of sports varies with
the season. Such sports as football, track, and vol-
leyball keep the boys busy in the fall. As the seasons

offered. Although the sixth period class consists of
members of the school teams, the other classes have
just as much spirit and fun.

Boards Provide Fine Programs And Activities
Any student attending the Opening Dance knows
that it is presented by the Ad Board, but many do
not know that the "Ad Board" stands for the Ad-
ministrative Board, and that it has a large part in
running A.H.S. affairs.
Besides presenting the dance, the Ad Board has
the responsibilities of settling difliculties with Stu-
dent Meetings, of appropriating Student Body
funds, and of carrying out school policies.
The membership of the Ad Board is made up of
the Student Body officers, two representatives from
each class, and six representatives-at-large elected
by the entire Student Body.
Being a democratic body, the Board reaches de-
cisions through votes, which represent the action of
the Student Body as a whole, thus A.H.S. is kept
Among the many school government organiza-V
tions is the Student Faculty Committee, whose
main duty is a most impotrant and responsible one
-that of selecting entertainment for our Student
The students on the Committee are: the Student
Body officers, the Chief Counselors of the Boards
of Control, the Speaker of the Ad Board, and the
presidents of the G.A., G.A.A., and the Men's and
Women's Block A. Also serving on the Committee
are Mr. lklell, Dr. Snell, Miss Los Kamp, and Mr.
Moore, faculty advisors.
The group meets once a week to discuss the type
of entertainment that is in keeping with the high
standards of A.H.S. and to review the program of
the previous Student Meeting.
Boards Of Control Maintain Order
With the arrival of Fall came football games,
student body meetings, and many other headaches
for the always busy Boards of Control.
The Boards of Control were charged with keep-
ing order among the numerous students of Ala-
meda High. At their weekly meetings, held during
school hours, they gave detentions and essays to the
most flagrant violators of the A.H.S. rules and regu-
lations. The policies of the boards were determined
by the members themselves, for only in unusual
cases did faculty members attend the meetings.
It was felt, because the members of the boards
were carefully screened and selected by several
committees, that they were perfectly capable of
setting the standards for the student body without
the help of the faculty.
The members of the Boards of Control were
especially helpful to the Vice President of the stu-
dent body, who is always trying to stamp out that
contagious disease, "littering."
The efficient chief counselors this past fall were
Canara Peters and Tony Ramsden. Assisting Ca-
nara were Hope Chipman, first vice-counselor,
Linda Axtell, second vice-counselor, Mary White,
recording secretary, and Pam Martin, sergeant-at-
arms. Assisting Tony in the same ofhces were Bob
Shepard, Rich Avanzino, Don Traver, and Greg

The Man Who Came to Dinner, presented by
the Class of june 560, on Nov. 6 and 7, 1959, was
a very successful three-act comedy.
Sheridan Whiteside, a famous lecturer, arrived
at the Stanley home for dinner, only to slip on the
front steps and break his hip. He was extremely
irritated as he was bed-ridden for a couple of weeks
and then was confined to a wheel chair.
During this time Whiteside upset the whole
household by literally becoming a dictator. Strange
gifts arrived from his world-wide friends. He was
deserted by his nurse, Miss Breen, because Banjo
had swooped her up and made passionate love to
her. Dr. Bradley confused Sheridans X-rays with
those of another patient. Maggie Cutler, Sheridan's
secretary, fell in love with a newspaper reporter,
Burt Jefferson, but actress Lorraine Sheldon inter-
Finally Mr. Stanley, enraged at Whiteside's in-
terference, requested that he leave: Sheridan
stormed from the house. There was a loud crash
and a moang then Sheridan was seen being carried
back insidefhe had again broken his hip!
Prof. Metz fRich Corbyj presents Mr. Whiteside with "Roach
City," while the hufer, Burt Jefferson and Maggie look on.

Pageant Tells Beautiful Story
This year the Christmas Pageant was entitled
To All Men Everywhere, and its meaning was in-
deed, for all men. It took us from the light meaning
of Christmas with its toys and fantasy to its deeper
and more basic religious meaning. The pageant il-
lustrated through its opening scenes that "Christmas
is childhoodis time" with happy children and their
Christmas toys. Christmas is also 'Smemory's timewg
the happy scenes that followed brought visions of
former holidays to everyone. The beautiful closing
Nativity Scene added a reverent note to the pag-
Many of the scenes, such as the traditional and
impressive scene of Christls birth, were presented as
tableaux, but still other scenes, such as the opening
department store scene and those in which Mrs.
Schwartz's modern dance classes performed, en-
tailed a great amount of action.
The pageant was directed by the A.H.S. drama
instructor, Lloyd Sisler, who has the ability of being
able to present the unchanging Christmas story in a
seemingly endless number of varied, thought-pro-
voking and delightful ways. It is in good part be-
cause of this ability that the student body thor-
oughly enjoyed the pageant and that the evening
performance was so well attended. '
Credits should also be given to both Mr. Hansons
String Ensemble and Mrs. Cederleaf's Choir for the
musical part of the pageant. Mrs. Schwartz's danc-
ers, who played many parts, including elves, stars,
and clowns, greatly enhanced the performance.

Mr. William Williams Uerry Freschll tells Mrs. Guerney his colorful opinion
of her husband, the principal, while Miss Hennesy, Ann Williams, and
Nancy Remington look on.
Can you imagine a shy, young high school teach-
er becoming involved with a pretty student, a home
economics teacher, and a school nurse, and getting
himself in 'cvery hot wateri' with the principal and
the school football team? You could if you saw the
spring Senior Play.
'6Mr. Peepers,', a hilarious three act comedy, was
chosen by the class of January 1961 as its Senior
Play. It was presented under the excellent direction
of Mr. Lloyd Sisler.
Betsy Williams, a pretty young student who wasn't
a bit shy, was madly in love with poor Mr. Peepers.
Mr. Peepers' real love was the new school nurse,
Miss Remington, but Betsy stubbornly would not
Archie Adams, Betsyis burly boyfriend, not too
happy about Betsyis affection for Mr. Peepers,
warned him that if he did not leave Betsy alone he
would have to reckon with the football team.
Mr. Peepers, our timid hero, after many amusing
episodes, managed to discourage Betsy and, finally,
to win the heart of Miss Remington.
Mr. Williams demands to know why Mr. Peepers makes all
women, especially his daughters, swoon.

We entered Alameda High as eager, enthusiastic
freshmen in the fall of '56. We entered with an
active and cooperative spirit. Four years have now
gone by since we were freshmen. Those years have
been enjoyable years for all of us. They were filled
with activities which now provide us with colorful
and pleasant memories of those many happy hours
that we spent together.
We as individuals and we as the Class of June
'60 have tried to uphold our A.H.S. motto: "Al-
ways High Standards."
The officers of our low freshmen term were Tony
Blunden, Chris Torpey, Jani Graham, Linda Ax-
tell, and Corrin Torpey. Our first class project was
selling Hornet tags. This project boosted the spirit
of the entire school that undefeated football season.
Our big event as lB's was f'Gym Dandyf' a noon
dance, held on April 10, 1957. Our leaders for the
term were Chuck Cattran, Julie Craig, Peggy
O'Neill, Sue Brooks, and Judy Warner.
As low sophomores our spirited class made and
sold felt pennants at football games. Our leaders for
the term were John Farnsworth, Sharon Tucker,
Sue Martin, Vicky Cannon and Sharon McKay.
As high sophomores the traditional Soph Hop
came into view, for the dance we selected the name
"Me and My Shadow." Our long-to-be-remem-
bered Soph Hop was held on May 2, 1958. Tony
Blunden and Mary Ann Reynolds, manager and
co-manager, were assisted by Judy Takeda, bids,
Mike Sheridan, decorations, Sue Martin, publicity,
Sharon McKay, music, Judie Irmscher, refresh-
ments, Jim Tavernier, skit, and Sally Laughter,
reception and invitations. Our class officers were
Chuck Cattran, Sue Brooks, John Farnsworth, Pam
Martin, and Julie Craig. Not to be forgotten was
the Fun Day that was celebrated during the same
term. "Cokes', were our money makers.
In the fall of l958 the day had finally come when
we were upper classmen. Showing that our school
spirit had not been lost, we sold paper megaphones
at football games. Leading the way were Mike
Sheridan, Nancy Longaker, Vicky Cannon, Mary
Ann Reynolds, and Jim T avernier.
As high juniors Phil Wlesternoff and Pam Mc-
Quay managed our Junior Sweaters. The colors
light blue and beige were chosen. Headed by our
Filled With Activities And Happiness
class ofhcers, Tony Blunden, Sam Harrosh, Bob
Bellmer, Sue Brooks, and Julie Craig, our class
turned out one of the most outstanding social events
of the term, the Junior Prom. "A Night In Rio"
was the theme selected for the event. The profitable
dance was managed by Phil Wlesternoff and Judy
Bernal. On April l7, 1959, the gym was trans-
formed into a beautiful ballroom. This "Night ln
Rio" was truly a night to be remembered thanks
to the various committees headed by Sharon Tucker,
decorationsg Corrin Torpcy and Pat Linggi, bids,
Ralph Roberts, skitg Allen Miller, music, Linda
Archer, reception, Sandra Sabatini, refreshments,
and Vicky Cannon, publicity. This year our class,
being gifted with unusual ideas, tried something
different. This "something" was having a queen to
reign over the Junior Prom. Mary Ann Reynolds
was chosen queen by all those attending the semi-
formal dance. The other finalists were Julie Craig,
Pat Howard, Pam Martin, and Donna Pritchard.
The clay Gnally came when we found ourselves
low seniors. The class chose as its Senior Play "Thc
Man VVho Came To Dinner." The play, presented
on November 8 and 9, was managed by Joe Rod-
rigues and Pam Martin. Dennis Gould acted as
Student Director of the record-breaking play. All
went well thanks to Mr. Sisler, our actors, and our
committee heads: Dee Dee Dumesnil and Chuck
Cattran, properties, Joyce Horine and Bob Bell-
mer, programs, Sue Riley, publicity, Linda Axtell,
sets, Judy Sharp, tickets, Sue Whitaker and Tom-
mie Allen, make-up, and Allen Miller, sound. Our
class officers were John Armoskus, Judie Horgan,
Karen Ingram, Mike Klein and Chris Torpey.
YVe, as high seniors, were seen at student meet-
ings proudly sporting our Senior Jackets of forest
green. They were secured by Jim Tavernier and
Vicky Kadota. The Senior Pcinic, Senior Meeting.
Senior Ball and finally Graduation have been eager-
ly awaited by all. Our class ofiicers were Jim Ta-
vernier, Vicky Cannon, Vicky Kadota, Sam Har-
rosh and Chris Torpey.
As we step into the future, we, the class of June
'60, wish to thank the faculty for the help, guid-
ance, and consideration which we have been shown
throughout our four years as students at Alameda

We Entered Into All The Activities
We sailed into this educational port in February,
l957. We eagerly scrambled ofii our ship and began
to find our land legs.
Our first set of officers were Rusty Slater, Presi-
dent, Karen Cant, Vice President, Jerri Lee Jen-
sen, Recording Secretaryg Carol Calkins, Financial
Seeretaryg and Nancy Barteau, Yell Leader. Under
the able leadership of our ofhcers, the class con-
ducted its first money-making activity K a noon
NVith one semester under its belt, the class elected
Dave Mason to occupy the presidential chair. His
cabinet was composed of Jerri Lee Jensen, Maxine
Pillofi, Jerry Eisleman, and Barry Parker. In order
to pay for the ever-threatening Acorn bill, we pre-
sented a noon movie. Barry Parker was the head
of this very successful enterprise.
Our QA term found Bob Johansen in the leading
role. Bob was supported very ably by Judie Maurer,
Mary Lee Ullner, Jerry Freschi, and Marilyn Live-
sey. Fun Day was marked on our calendar of events,
and the class was able to deposit at the A.H.S. bank
a respectable sum of money as a result of our
"Sponge Throwing" concession. Paul Stang was
the able manager and he was assisted by Jerry
Freschi and Ron Labetieh.
Jerry Ortiz wielded the gavel during the high
sophomore term. Our other officers were Frances
Gillard, Rusty Slater, Ron Labetich, and Llargi
Justin. During this term we had our first major
activity, our great Soph Hop, c'Firefly." This sue-
cessful event was managed by Bruce DeVine and
Jerri Lee Jensen. Assisting Bruce and Jerri Lee
were Dave Mason, Musicg Mary Lee Ullner, Bids,
Jerry Freschi, Publicity, Art Blakeney, Decora-
tions, and Janet Rouquier, Reception.
The spring semester of 1959 found us as upper
classmen at last. Leading the class activities during
the term were Dave Mason, Mary Lee Ullner, Judy
Schmitz, Judie Maurer, and Rosemary Lothian.
We returned to school in the fall of '59 to find
ourselves high juniors. Our destinies were guided
by Jerry Ortiz, Rosemary Lothian, Frances Gillard,
Myrna Middlesworth, and Marilyn Livesey. Dur-
ing the term we sported our beautiful grey Junior
sweaters. Paul Stang and Judy Sparks held the
managerial reins of this activity. As high juniors
We Were Always Busy
we presented the big social event of the term. The
Junior Prom, "Exotica,', was managed by Bob
Johansen and Karen Cant. Assisting with this gala
affair were Margi Justin, Bids, Paul Stang, Deco-
rations, Janet Rouquier, Publicity, Ed Rees, Mu-
sic, Glennis Thompsen, Reception, and Margaret
As low seniors we presented the fabulous Senior
Play, "Mr. Peepersf' on March 25 and 26. Ted
Sutton and Judie Maurer were Manager and Co-
Manager respectively, and Myrna Middlesworth
and Glennis Thompsen were Student Directors.
The committee heads for the senior play were
Bob Bramante, Properties, Maxine Pilloff, Publi-
city, Susan Melling, Programs, Art Blakeney,
Tickets, and Bob Johansen, Sets. As a result of the
full cooperation of the entire class, the play was
fully enjoyed by the Alameda High School students
and the public. Assuming the leadership for our
class in the low senior semester were Ron Labetich,
President, Bruce DeVine, Vice President, Judy
Sparks, Recording Secretary, Sue Sivanns, Finan-
cial Secretary, and Lee Finch, Yell Leader.
On May 27, 1960, we held the first of our
many senior activities, the Senior Picnic. Ron Pe-
rata and Frances Gillard were entrusted with the
task of steering this outdoor affair to a very suc-
VV e are eagerly looking forward to next semester,
when we shall be high seniors. Among our many
planned activities for next semester are Senior Hat
and Sock Day, the Senior Meeting presented to the
Student Body, the Senior Banquet, the Senior Ball,
and, of course, Graduation. Throughout the term
our class will be seen wearing our senior jackets
At the conclusion of next semester, we shall be-
gin to board our ship. As we sail away we shall
have mixed feelings of regret and impatience. Wle
shall be sorry to leave the familiar sights of the
crowded halls, the groups of students gathered in
front of the school, and the familiar faces of the
faculty. We shall be impatient to find jobs or go on
to college. VVe wish to thank all our advisers and all
others who have worked with us and helped us for
these four years, and we say to the next class and
to all future classes, "Good Luckf,

3B's Enjoy Profitable Term
The Class of June '61 chose Rick Mcilreery,
Prcsidcntg Dianna hlyers, Vice Prcsidentg Dena
Lambie, Recording Secretaryg Penny Franchi, Fi-
nancial Secretaryg and joan Logan, Yell Leader
to lead it during the fall semester. The two class
meetings were highlighted by some excellent enter-
tainment from members of the class and by the
reading of minutes taken at noon meetings. QThe
noon meetings were attended by the class officers
and, sometimes, the advisory representatives. Neces-
sary business matters that could not be taken care
of in :t class meeting were taken care of.j The
money raising event of this term was the selling of
programs at the Richmond-Alameda football game.

The High junior orlicers were Gary Garfinklc,
Stephanie Nesbit, John Adams, Allen Spector, and
Rich Zecher for the olhces of President, Vice Presi-
dent, Recording Secretary, Financial Secretary, and
Yell Leader, respectively. These ofhcers decided
that more students should be encouraged to partici-
pate on Jr. Prom Committeesg so a sign-up sheet
was sent to each 3B advisory instead of placing it in
the class chairmans room. Besides having had such
excellent ideas as this, the class also had a success-
ful Junior Prom, "Nightfall," held on April 29,
1960, which was both profitable and quite enjoy-
nning exhibit at the Science Fair.

much towards placing Alameda High far up the list of schools with high scho-
To the student at Alameda High, A.H.S. means Always High Standarzls.
But to many this motto means high standards not only in sportsmanship and
school activities, but also in scholastic records.
Many of these students aim for thc perfect scholastic records of a straight A
report card. Few achieve this goal, so those that do must be honored as our top
Being honored on this page are the nine students at Alameda High School
who received straight A report cards at the close of the Fall semester. Pictured
around the outside are the following straight A students: Bob Bulkley, Marilyn
Butler, Carol Ann Chladek, Paul Hoekenga, Sally Laughter, Peggy Maclntosh,

This year's ACORN contains a new section called
Scholastics. This section will honor those students
at Alameda High who have excelled in their school
work. Pictured around the outside of the page are
those people who have the highest grade point aver-
ages in their classes.
Those people who are most outstanding in the
High Senior class are Bob Bulkley, Mike Klein,
Nancy Longaker, Jack McElwee, and Sue Stevens.
From the graduating class of January, 1961, the
following students were selected as the highest aca-
demic five: Richard Hill, Judy Lewis. John Ru-
dolph, janet Rouquier, and Rusty Slater.
The High Junior class had Evie Ashcroft, Pa-
tricia Gorton, lWarsha Hayame, Mack McCray,
and Bob Thorpe as their top students.
Barbara Babcock, Marian Gilmore, Sue Heeley,
Peggy MacIntosh, and Bruce Shepherd have the
best averages in their Low Junior class.
From the High Sophomore class the Hve students
who stood out above all the rest were Bruce Hen-
schel, Paul Hoekenga, Miliss McCutchen, Kathie
Russum, and Bob l'Valker.
The High Freshman class, although it has been
at Alameda for just a year, already has some out-
standing students. They are Louise Burt, Joan Gur-
vich, Judy Hanson, Jean Ormsby, and Eugene

English was no problem to these excellent students-Mack McCroy, Richard Hill, Sue Heeley, and
Peggy Muclntosh. Not pictured: Mary Ann Reynolds.
An excellence in our native language and
high English grades were required of each of the
top five English students. Each had to be ex-
tremely fluent in both spoken and written Eng-
lish. Here brieflly is a thumbnail sketch of the
most highly rated talent in the English Depart-
ment this past year.
If one is aware of Peggy MaeIntosh's grades.
one would hardly be surprised that she does a
notable job in English too. Peggy is a straight
UA" student in all of her Classes.
Even though Mack McCray is definitely fa-
miliar with the English language in all of its
many phases, his favorite phase and highest
ability lies in creative writing. He is able to ply
the language into either comic or dramatic
form and take delight in doing so.
One of the fields of English in which Richard
Hill is most exemplary is that of organization
of thoughts, whether written or orally expressed.
His logic in the writing ol essays is one of the
skills for which he receives notice.
Blary Ann Reynolds is also noted for her
achievements in the line of essays, Because she
is in her senior year, Mary' Ann devotes a good
deal of time to sentenee mechanics as well.
Sue Heeley revels in witty writing and has
the enviable knack of changing situations,
events, objects, or anything of which she writes
to appear quite humorous. She is equally adept
at writing serious discourse.
These top English students have and will
continue to set high standards for those who
follow them, not only in the Held of English,
but also in life as a whole.
Mack McCroy and Peggy Maclntosh test their skill in sentence Taking time out from their English homework are Richard Hill
and Sue Heeley.
The Besl In English And Foreign Language
Do you speak French, Latin, or Spanish? These five do. They are the top five in the Language Department:
Richard Avanzino, Dinah Bowen, Evie Ashcroft, Mary Louise langren, and John Rudolph.
The honor of being among the top five in
foreign languages goes only to the most deserv-
ing students. These students excel in the spoken
and written fluency of the language, in their
daily assignments, and in their extra-credit
Many of the students chosen study more than
one language and do equally well in each.
Evie Ashcroft and Rich Avanzino were
chosen as a result of their achievements in both
Latin and French. Both Evie and Rich have
been active in many school activities as well.
Dinah Bowen, a high senior, was chosen
for her outstanding work in Latin and Spanish.
Voted by her class as "Girl Most Likely to Suc-
ceed," Dinah also received an excellent rating
in the National Merit Scholarship tests.
Marv Louise Langren, another high junior.
has also been selected to be included in the
Top Five list. She shows great promise in thc
language Held, and her teachers expect much
John Rudolph, a low senior, is the last in this
list alphabetically. In addition to this honor,
he also was voted by his classmates as the "Boy
Most Likely to Succeed'
Through the Scholastic section the ACORN
staff hopes to stimulate competition between
students for the honor of being pictured and
mentioned as a top scholar, and thereby to en-
courage all students to improve their scholastic

The outstanding students in mathematics are Worth Farnsley, Leslie Mecum, Marilyn Butler, and Pat
Duffy. Not pictured: Lorie White.
Math And Science Are The Subjects To Whicl
In this age ol' scientific' progress there is a
constant demand for students who exeel in the
held of mathematics,
The Math Department at A.H.S. keeps this
in mind as its topics are presented. Freshmen
take first year algebra. For sophomores pro-
gressive plane geometry is oflered. A eourse in
advanced algebra is offered for those students
desiring to delve further into that field oi'
mathematies. For further study in geometry
there is a solid geometry Course. Trigonometry
and slide rule are developed for students with
interest in those subjects.
This year hve students who displayed es-
eeptional ability in mathematies are being hon-
ored in the book's new Seholastie seetion.
Pat Duffey, although she had been at A.H.S.
for only one year, displayed her knowledge in
the field of mathematics by maintaining an
NAU average in advanced algebra.
Leslie Meeurn was selected also beeause of
her exceptional ability in the field of mathe-
maties. Wlhen she was not studying she was
involved in one of the selioolis many aetivities.
Marilyn Butler was another student picked
for her mathematie ability. Marilyn was hon-
ored also for her straight HA" average during
the fall term.
Lorie YfVhite, a freshman, was seleeted for the
high average she maintained in first year
Lastly, the only boy selected in this depart-
ment was Worth Farnsley. Worth excelled in
math and played in the band.
Algebra and all mathematics classes require of all students the Some students say that math is dimcult, but Pat Duffy and
bility to reason, as shawn by Worth Farnsley and Leslie Mecum. Marilyn Butler both feel that it is intriguing and fun.

Five students were selected for being superior in the science field. They are Monica Millett, Mike Klein,
Marshall Jacoby, Joan Megill, and Elizabeth Dorrance.
These Students Conlribuie Much Of Their Time
In this year of the great national debate
over our eountryis missile program. it would
be good to see what our sehool is doing in the
way of produving seientists. From the live smil-
ing faces above, one would think that it is do-
ing quite well.

livery year the Bank of America makes awards
to gifted students who show promise of bright fu-
tures. The fields in which the awards are made are
so varied that they include practically all the
courses open to high school students.
The General Held winners this year were as fol-
lows: Bob Bulkley, for liberal arts, that is, English
social sciences, and languages, John Rudolph, for
mathematics and science, Janet Rouquier, for vo-
cational arts, which include shorthand, typing, and
office practice, and Sue Martin, for fine arts.
- The state scholarship program is a very competi-
tive one, and students at A.H.S. can be exceed-
ingly proud that two of their student body haye
been chosen as recipients of these scholarships. The
two students were Mike Klein and Jay Garhnkle,
Mike, a high senior, was valedictorian of his class
and had an outstanding scholastic record in his four
years in high school. Jay also had an excellent aca-
demic record and received many awards while a
student at Alameda.
It is a pleasure for both students and faculty alike
to see these future citizens begin their adult lives by
holding these high honors which they so richly

Among the many honors offered to Alameda
High School students are the Gregg Shorthand

the National Merit Scholarship Awards. This year
A.H.S. is represented in all three of these categories.
To receive a Gregg Certificate, one must be able

To be in the finals of thc National Kfcrit Schol-

student would be proud to have. Both Mike Klein
and Bob liulkley hold this honor. ln order to qual-

The old tradition of the Spartans holding a dance
in the spring was kept this year. Of course the name
of "Shipwreck" was applied to the dance. The
decorations for the dance really brought out the
theme, and everyone who went enjoyed them. The
dance was a huge success, especially financially.
The club helps to promote better friendship
among men, and it tries to make better future citi-
zens. The boys are introduced socially, you might
say, for it is an honor to belong to a social club at

The Freshman basketball team, coached by Mr.
Connor, won three and lost eight of its league
games. Coach Connor was especially pleased with
his team as it beat VVillard Junior High, which had
one of the best ninth grade teams in the league.
A better Junior Varsity with more height can be
expected next year, three of the players on the
freshman team were over six feet.
The Hornet Junior Varsity basketball team had
a very mediocre season as far as the won-lost record
book goes, but as a team it showed constant im-
provement throughout the season. The high point
of the season was the final game, with the League
J.V. Champions, El Cerrito, which was not de-
cided until the last minute of play. The players who
made up the team were Don Bovo, Bill Doan, Terry
Fogarty, Ken Kowalski, Bee Berg, Tom Smelscr as
forwards, Bob Rodgers, Tom Kiss, Mike Creese as
centers, Don Hammond, Thor Maydole, Joe Tru-
jillo, Mickey Lufkin as guards. Many of these play-
ers are now ready for positions on next year's varsity
team. The team's league record was three wins
against nine losses with a season total of eight wins
and fourteen losses.

Baseball Team Has Top Defense
Alameda High's Varsity baseball team finished
its practice season by winning three, losing three
and tying two games. There was a steady improve-
ment on the field and as soon as the hitting caught
up with the defense, the Hornets were ready to give
competition for the league title. The Varsity infield
lined up as follows: first base, Mike Gannon, sec-
ond base, Ron Labetichg shortstop, Al Dart, third
base, Don Hammond. In the outfield were Mick
McGregor, left field, Rusty Slater, center field,
and Jerry Ghiselli, right field. The pitching staff
included Harry Thompson, Jun Hasegawa, Bob
Rodgers, and Don Bovo. Tony Bertcro and Bill
Doan did the catching.
ln one of the first games of the season, Alameda
beat Bishop O'Dowd, 13-5. Ron Labetich led the
Hornets with a single, a double and a triple.
All the home games were played at Lincoln Park
after school. Coach Marvin Pearson felt that with
the support of the students at these games, the
baseball players would produce a team which would
be a credit to Alameda High School.

The Alameda Varsity swim team won one of its
first two meets. Although Coach Ash Jones felt that
the team lacked depth, the outlook for the season
was much improved over last year. The presence
of certain essential swimmers made the difference
between a defeat or a victory. Alameda beat Oak-
land High School and might have taken its first

dance and enjoy it so much that they go into some
field of Choreography after graduation.

G.A.A. Enioys Variety Of Activities
The members of the Girls' Athletic Association
always have had fun, competition and excitement
provided in the many sports and activities of this
organization. Each semester a variety of sports was
offered to the members. The newest addition to the
G.A.A. curriculum was Latin American dancing,
which attracted a large group. Other activities in-
cluded bowling, basketball, life-saving, speed-a-way,
swimming, tennis, crew, hockey, modern dance,
volleyball, soccer, tumbling, badminton, and soft-
Highlights of this year included a leadership con-
ference held at Livermore Union High School,
which hosted two play days for neighboring high
schools and one playday for the local elementary
schools, a playday at the University of California,
and a sports day at the California School for the
Deaf. Under the able direction of the oHicers the
G.A.A. held very successful fudge and pencil sales
each semester and sponsored a student body meet-
The hnal event of each semester was the party
called 4'The G.A.A. Spread." Here the girls receive
their athletic awards, including the Block NA", the
goal of every G.A.A. member.
