They were the Pioneers of other days. What they built will endure. We, too, of this day, are pioneers. Land-strivers, wealth-builders, truth-seekers, 'each of us taking the unknown heritage of life firmly in his grasp, beating new paths into the wilderness of ideas, building, leaving life fuller and richer for having lived.

Having the same desires that impelled our pioneering forefathers, it is no wonder chemists investigate the possibilities of coal for making stockings, aviators fly around the world in three days, engineers cross vast expanses with magnificent bridges, modern Michelangelos turn their artistic talents to the construction of mammoth structures of glass and steel, medical science, having surmounted the superstition and prejudice of previous ages, having conquered by the application of reason and research, is by the same method still trying to solve remaining problems. Science has moved out of the darkness into the age of enlightenment. Though only a few receive the world's plaudits, all can be part of the glory and ful- fillment of these pursuits for, "They also serve who only stand and wait".-Milton realized! the importance of the small man when he wrote this immortal line. Some of us must play our part on the sidelines, offering encouragement and whatever help is needed, being open- minded and tolerant. Our small part becomes momentous in that we place no obstacle in the path of progress. Everyone, even if his efforts have never been acclaimed, 'has a right to feel satisfaction from his deeds. They are as important to him and, in fact, to the world, as the big business' deals that the head of a gigantic corporation promotes. Today we are closer to the general realization of the importance of every cog in a piece of machinery than ever before, and-as. the smallest bolt in a huge Diesel engine aids in its development of power,-the sweeper of our streets, the clerk in a store, the door-to-door salesman, the trained executive, the first' mate on one of Uncle Sam's submarines plays a part in progressive living. The city healtli department, the store owner, the corporation president, the admiral of the Pacific fleet cannotl dispense with the lowly ones who, many times, represent only a number on a census report td all but their intimates. First the pioneers came in sailing ships-ships of wood as hard, enduring, and unfaltering as the men who sailed them, then across the plains in rude wagons they went, ever travelingl toward new horizons. Today's pioneers are traveling towards horizons that may seem endless, the solution of scientific problems, of governmental and social difficulties, the adjustment of industry and labor differences, in fact, all problems of living. When with these they have finished, they will look. into their souls for new horizons to bring nearer world happiness and prosperity-America's pioneers! i l l i l l l i l 4 i ' . 1 4 g I i 1: .1 ,. .l '.-Q3. .. +.

Conveniences which we enjoy now and which we take for granted often represent much thinking, planning, and even suffering. lt is natural for us to associate pioneering with the hardships of early settlers: but even today men and women are exploring new fields under great difficulties. Pioneers of the sky, of the ether, and of the deep sea, have captivated our' interests and startled our imagination. Every problem is an added opportunity' for some ingenious and courageous mcn. There is much to be done to improve conditions. At this present time perhaps the most needed pioneering is in the many phases of human relation- ships. We need better understanding among individuals, groups and nations. Why not quickly tie your interest to some problem and become a pioneer in making possible better understanding among men and nations? el even BUYS' VICE PRINCIPAL twelve MR. CCDMERFORD I Although we can no longer follow the advice of Horace Greeley to "Go West young man!" yet the qualities of character of the dauntless pioneers are as important now to maintain our status quo as they were when new territories were opened. You graduates are going out intoa world whose security is being beset upon all sides and our future depends upon you. You are made of the.same stuff as the pioneers were. When in danger, show their courageg when discouraged and skies seem blackest, show their patience and perseverance: when difficulties seem insurmountable, show their ingenuity! Your enthusiasm, your youth, your idealism are great assets and your training in our schools has equipped you to take an active part in your community and in your country's government. Your development here at Alexander Hamilton, your grasp of the problems, and your willingness to cooperate and to assume responsibility has made us very proud of you and we know that our faith and pride in you is justified. Our best wishes go with you-Pioneers of the Future. john P. Comerford Miss ROBBINS l I l As long as those of us here in the west have memories, pioneer days will live again. As long as the United States endures, we trust that the pioneer spirit will never fail. We who live on the last frontier of the United States should be particularly eager to cherish our pioneer heritage. The world has certainly reached another frontier in the on- going of civilization, and the pioneer spirit which meant much in the development of the American epic is again a crying need of the world today. Freedom, a basic pioneer characteristic, has all but passed from the scene in Europe. Their adventures at the present time are destructive rather than constructive in nature. A youthful zest and a willingness to believe in the main chance are found almost nowhere else in the world except the Western Hemisphere. Faith in our destiny and the hope that all the world may somehow come to understand that the democratic ideal is the only sane one for men to live by should still be held by the youth of our land. Graduates of Summer '40, you who go out into a tragic world should hold fast to the faith and ideals which America has given you. In your own lives and activities help your country fulfill her destiny. Be pioneers of freedom and democracy in their re-estab- lishment in the world today. May your highest hopes be realized!

STUDENT GOVERNORS As the end of the familiar trail that is my career at Hamilton ls reached, a feeling of mingled regret and pleasure overcomes me. l am regretful that my days at Hamilton are at an end, but pleased that in my last semester in high school l have been given the honor of sewing you as your student body president. Any success that has come to me in this office is due to the cooperation of the student body and its chosen leaders. To the faculty, which was ever ready to counsel and advise, l express the gratitude of the other officers and myself. My regret at leaving is tempered by the knowledge that the affairs of the student body will be capably handled by the incom- ing officers.

The board' must be ready at all times to counsel and to confer with the principals. Sponsor, Mr. H. O. Dyck. sixteen BOYS LEAGUE CABINET Hospitality is synonymous with Hamilton. Responsible for welcoming a new student is the Boys' League Cabinet. lt is their pleasure to see that a strange boy meets other boys, that he fits into the system "with the greatest of ease." Other duties: sponsors athletic events and aud calls. Sponsor, Mr. B. 1. Donahuep President, Don Chiniquyg members, Howard Hilborn, Vern Rowley, joe Woodward, jim Moore, Wayne Randall, Austin Sellery. A lonesome girl in Hamilton cannot be! Why? Because every girl becomes a member of the Girls' League which promotes friendship, happiness, and service. New girls are always welcomed by the Hospitality Committee. The leaders, the Girls' League Cabinet, plan social functions, assemblies, and philanthropy drives in which all members participate. Sponsor, Miss Harriet C.

GIRLS LEAGUE CABINET SGVCFIYBBFI eighteen GIRLS AND BOYS CCDURTS ls the GIRLS' COURT an organization to try errant girls? Not at all! Its purpose is to help girls to know that there is more fun and greater pleasure in playing the game of living in school if all follow the rules. Representation in the court is by grades. Spon- sor, Miss Nellie D. Rogers. Cold, impersonal con- demnation com es not from the BOYS' COURT, rather does it try to dis- cover the cause of each individual's problem, to assist in finding a solu- tion, to emphasize the necessity of conforming to democratic regulation of any group, including the offender, if the group is to function smoothly.

SENIOR PROBLEMS Faced with the complexities of helping to direct details of business co-incident with the affairs of a class being graduated, the Senior Aye Problems Committee functions as a sort of House of Repre- sentatives which serves the Pioneer officers and class. SENIOR SPONSGRS The Pioneers being the forward-looking, active, progressive class that they are, it has been found advisable to temper their initiative, and to direct their enthusiasms into the most effective channels. The sponsors this semester have done an excellent job of steering the Senior Aye Class. Top row-Capt. H. O.

The number of these honor students is based on a representation of one Ephebian to- every forty graduates. Modeled after the pattern of an ancient Greek order which was composed of the leading youths of Athens, the Ephebian Society turthers the spirit of leadership among the youth of today, from whom America's pioneers of tomorrow will come. The honor of being chosen an Ephebian is one to inspire every Hamiltonian. The opportunity for continued service, not only to the school and community, but, also, to the youth of the nation, is one which should carry the Ephebians on to real achievements.

SENICR AVE OFFICERS The smiling Mr. Bill Moats, who has had the honor of being Senior Aye president for the semester summer '40, is known among his fellow students as a most democratic, friendly person. He is singularly fitted to have been the president of the Pioneers, if by pioneer we mean a leader who initiates. Bill's tenure as president of the Pioneers has seen many innovations in policy which have been advantageous to the seniors. An old fashioned picnic, a social event promoted by him for the seniors, took on a new character from his original planning and personal touch. So thoroughly was the affair enjoyed, that a senior picnic bids fair to be- come a tradition. To be a worthy member of the United States Navy is Bill's plan for life. We foretell that his service will be so well rendered-Message to Garcia type of action- that Hamilton will have cause to be proud of him. Bill has expressed his sincerest hopes for the well- being and success of his fellow Pioneers. BILL MOATS SR. AYE PREXY Tl-IE MIG!-ITV PICDNEERS LESTER ABRAMSON-lst Lt. R.O.T.C.

Now, each of us is about to start on a new path. Let's see what these new trails are and who are taking them. Among the future Phi Beta Kappa's at U.C.L.A. are jack Beatty, james ljakel jacobson, jerry Boish ldon't mind my puns-you know, boish will be boishl, Leah Bowlby-another career lady, whose medium, by the way, is art-Ellen Donnelly, jim Folger, Barbara Geissler, Richard IFlashl Gordon, Rose Gorman, and,jim Alexander Hamilton lno relation to the famous onel. Also planning on gracing the campus at U. C. L. A. are Howard jacobs, Evelyn Levnie, William Libaw, jim Coleman lwe don't need a coalmang this is the land of sunshinel, Hazel Mehorter-me orter give up making corny puns-Vernon Mettler, Irma Morris, Nancy Nervig, Maxine Purvis, Kent Rosemont, Harry Elias, Lorraine Sax, jane Wright, and Arlene Grimson. Seeking fugitive fame and a place among the imrrortals are Lester Abramson, Naohma Banner, Beverly Clark, Mary Daigh, Anne Dailey, Harriette Dunn--l'll be glad when l get this dunn-Bob Flick, and Betty Foley. Hanako Horiuchi, lthe girl who emanates charml, Bob johnson, Doug Leavens, Ethyle Paysnick, Beth Pisciotta, lda Mae Rose, Fred ll'm al Ruffolo lget it-rough fellow?l, and Edward Stephenson, will also take advantage of the higher education offered by City College. lntending to enroll in Hamilton's extension school, S.M.j.C., in order to be near the beach, are Kenny Bacheldor, Rollins Cushman, Bob Davis, Lorne Froats. Mario Ghio, Richard Gilbert, Bi!l Hall. Bob tell roun'rn-nl Bowman, Verne Heitman, and Wallace Hoeriger. Wright Miller, jimmie Moore, Bob Rombotis, julius Roseman, Dave lsomebody shut my mouthl Fales, Harry Sweeney, and Farrell lFerdinandi Verdon also plan to make S.M.j.C. their stopping place on their way to take a dip in the briny deep. Hamilton's feminine representatives at this same pleasure resort will be jean Vasquez, Dorothy Wells, Ellen Winger, Anne Cunningham, and Mar- cella Smith. Some of our best talent will attend other j.C.'s: Bill Stokes, the harmonica player: Emil Sitkei, already an artist in a Hungarian orchestrag and Gloria Buttles, who tops Zorina in ballet. There seems to be some special attraction in j.C.'s for our grads. ln such an institution, june Peterson, jimmie Sutton, Vera Sherrill, Pat Arnold, Lorraine Baldwin, Elsie Buckley, Ruth McCoubrey,.Roger Miller, and Olive Olsen-No. l on jimmie Moore's hit parade-will struggle to complete their education. Varied interests among the noble Pioneers is indicated by the wide choice of schools. At Metropolitan we shall find Dorothy Miller, Beverly Pelzer, and Roberta Simpson. The lone pioneer to attend U.S.C. will be Robert Levy. Up at the farm lStanford to the high browsl Wally Bush will attempt to cu'tivate a degree. journeying across the continent to attend Carnegie Tech will be johnny Barner. Out on the sand swept dunes of Del Rey, Gordon Weatherly will attend Loyola College. California Poly beckons to Larry Schneider, as does Pasadena j.C. to Peter Reed. john Mason will carry on the honor of Hamilton at Cal Tech or U.C.L.A. At- tending art school will be Zane Haag. Walter Ortleib will further his interests in flying, attending an aviation school. Planning to be a construction engineer by going to night school will be john lesquirel Aiken. Ho'mbv College will be honored by the presence of Charlene Keefe, while Mary Wubben will attend Mount St. Mary's Convent. Alleviating the distress of the sick will be Barbara Outcault, Mary Lynn Whitford, Peggy Young and Bonnie McFadyen, who plan on attending a nurses' training school. Hyman Epstein will delve into the intri- cacies of radio and television at the National Schoolsg at Southwestern Kenneth Scott will prepare himself for his future. ln Oregon State, studying to be big, mighty forest rangers, will be Bob Bacon, jack Hogan, and Chester Hildreth. Reaching high C at a music school will be Doris Grayson, at Sawyer's Business College Evelyn Parsons and Pauline Rabinow will learn the keyboard, we hope. The next time you walk into a beauty shop you need not be surprised to see operator Elaine Broadhead, who will have learned the art of cultivating beauty in Sullivan's Beauty College. Going to school up north will be john Ross. jeanne Gallian will attend a dress design school. Finally, we come to a Pioneer who cannot bear to tear herself away from Hamilton. She is Helen Stickland, who will return next semester to do P. G. In darkness and in silence as to which institution will be glorified by their personalities are Polly Young, Shutterbug Art Wood, Flohna lno relation to Dickl Tracy, Myrla Smith, Patricia Rohe, Ruth Colahan. Albert Day, Emery Caal, and Phillette Haan. Some school of higher training will entertain Howard Hilborn, john Hook, Howard jennings, Beverly johnson, Al King, Alf Larsen, Genelle Lepere, and Thor Madsen. Many Pioneers feel that persons skilled in a trade have the best chance to make a success in life. Choos- ing Frank Wiggins for training are Kenneth Brown, Robert Brunn, Mona Carter, Maxine Chapin, Mae Cowie, Hans lhe's another Pettyl Ewertz, Burton Williams, Tom Duteau, and Suzy Nelson. Heading for other trade schools are Shirley Brosteadt, Carmen Brotman, Harry Dunn-l'm almost dunn now--Barbara Hoobler, Eddie Miller, johnny Mabee lmaybe you wish I were throughl, Yoshie Oban, and Wayne Paulson. , gb V l L -fr ., ,fp-ls..

S. government. Also business rence, Lois McGonigal, Margaret Moore, Maudie Norris, Sylvia Rosen, Evelyn Estelle Soskin, Connie Severy, and Betty Seley. That march music you hear is not martial but marital. The marchers, intent on taking the final step, are Kay Bakken, Virginia Bower, Bonnie Buhrman, Theresa Burra, Lois Edwards, Barbara Hall, Dorothea Mehorter, Anita Schwarz, and Lila Lee Whitfield. What, no boys? j. Edgar Hoover, your worries are over! The cr'me problem will be no more, for here are five fearless individuals intending to become G-men. These future crook catchers are Don Chiniquy, jacki Gibson, Gene Lindstrom, Art lKrupal David, and john Humphreys. We hope Bill Moats and Bob Rodriguez are not susceptible to mal de mer for they will soon be riding the waves in Uncle Sam's navy. Many of our Pioneers have their vocations already decided upon. Russell Baingo and Gregory Lins will be printers. Louis Bedford will work as an electrical engineer. The'next time you hear static on your radio, call on Wayne Bair, a specialist in the field of radio, to find the difficulty. ln the distant future when you build the perfect house. call on jim Thompson to lay your bricks, lif you want an egg laid, call lit edsl. An air- minded individual, who plans on aeronautical engineering, is a son of Ireland, james Sweeney. To keep the world informed about the best products through advertising is Kenneth Chappell's job. Maybe Phyllis Davison with her plan to make clothes can aid Verna Wallis who plans to design clothes. Possibly the most envied of our Pioneers is Don johnson, who plans to dare to fish for a living. Air-hostess Ruth Tallman will soothe the fears of air-sick persons, while Dorothy Dinse, a dentist's assistant, will soothe the fears of tooth-sick per- gong, Ruth Buckley will do some fear--soothing 35 a receptionist in a doctor's office. Guy Evans will toot a trom- bone in a band. As a motorcycle racer, Leland Hillis will compete with gravity and centrifugal force. Vilorking in a studio, incorrigibly romantic Bill Lillie will hob-nob with the make-believes. Pauline jones plans to work miracles by beautifying the faces of some women, while Florence Kruse, a masseuse, will do the same with their bodies, Eddie Kalajian, a policeman to be, will aid the aforementioned G-men by seeing that there are no crooks on his beat.

That dame across the aisle wouldn't even tell me when the war of l8I2 was fought! Buck up, old boy. There's an English exam comin' up tomorra. Tuesday: That English test was a cinch, had to skip only five questions. Susie, bless her heart, she gave me five answers, and Ioe, he gave me seven. Some stuff! I sure wish all tests was that easy. Wednesday: Cot my picture from the fotographer today. Now, I ask you, am I really that bad looking? Where, oh where, is a nice, high building from which I can hurl myself? Come to think of it, must be poor fotographi, lights an ever'thing. I' don't care if I ain't no movie star. I got what it takes, virillati and pursunaliti. Thursday: Had an off day today, got up late, cop pinched me for speeding and I was only goin' 70 per. Cops ain't hewmen, having never served detension for -bein' late. Susie asked me to take her to the prom. Thought there was a reason for her givin' me those answers in that English test. Friday: There ain't no justiceg had a super week-end planned, but a teacher with no sense of humor who doesn't understand addolesunt kids an' everthink, sent a failure notis home through the male--Mom is makin' me stay home to study my fizziology or else-I noes too much fur this school. But, come to think of it, I kinda like this school. In fact, I think l'II come back next term. In fact, I think l'II have to come back weather I want to or not!!! t Tl-IE NOVICE BY RUTH MARY SYKES, AI2 I am a novice . . . an amateur . . . a beginner. To tell the truth, I had never ice skated before. But, I am ready to try anything once. My story starts last week when I went to the Senior Color Day ice skating party. For two days and nights I spent many hours and too much money at magazine shops hunting for pictures of ice skating costumes and attire. My allowance dwindled to a mere seventy-five cents, but not until, using the cut and pasted picture for mentors,,I had selected my apparel. The great day arrived! I waited in anguish for the close of school while someone about me recited French or quoted symbols, but I was elsewhere, as usual, for I was dreaming of the magnificent conquest I would make that night. I could see the boys, especially Horatio, looking on admiringly, while I skated by in my stunning costume. Ah, celestial thoughts! Ah, sweet dreams! Mother took me to the rink. Don't judge me by that . . . who knows but that I might have had a male escort before the evening had paledl The music was playing as I donned' my costume and laced on my skating shoes over the three pair of socks. They bulged somewhat at the ankles, but mother insisted that I must keep warm. Next I put on the lovely new black wool ski suit that I had seen in the Maine magazine. Around my throat I flung care- lessly, but artistically, an orange and green knitted scarf, ,an heirloom -of my grandmother's. A hat and mittens of black, decorated with cute, bouncing, yarn balls, completed the outfit. Horatio! I was ready. ln my coyest manner I stepped to where our class was assembled. A titter broke out . . . someone had probably fallen. I cautiously felt my way on to the shadowed rink. The orchestra was playing the moonlight waltz. The lights suddenly flashed. A creature in a short white skirt flew by, another, in red. Everywhere the tinkle of bells and glimpses of short . . . short skirts. In all the crowd, no other girl with an outfit like mine! As the sound of supposedly suppressed titters came to my ears, I fled across the ice. But, forgetting that I did not know how to manipulate myself . . . I fell! A most clumsy fall. l slid half-way across the ice and landed in the center of the rink. When the instructors picked me up and pulled me to the edge, I was horrified. Horatio was laughing . . . laughing at me! For a moment I watched him . . . stunned. Then without a word he hurried one of those immodest creatures in white to the rink, and they glided past, arm in arm. My humiliation was complete. I fled that place of heart-break and disillusionment after almost tearing off my skates. There's nothing more to add . . . except . . . "As Maine goes, so goes the country" is a hackneyed and misused phrase, and not a fashion note. Don't believe all you read in the fashion magazines, ski suits can't compete with short skirts! forty-seven SENIOR B OFFICERS SPONSORS Top row: Mr. Thomas Brockhouse, Mrs. Anne von Poederoyen, Mr. Camillo Guercio.

Present day education tends towards the formation of satisfactory attitudes based on adequate knowledge and experienceg towards instruction that stimulates the organization of learning into unity, the weighing of generalizations, the making of sound deductionsg in fact, tends to integration of experiences. Having these "tendencies toward" well in mind, the Hamilton Faculty goes about the job of instructing seventeen hundred students, each offering a bit to the understanding which will help to harmonize life with reality. MOSTEST, POWERFULEST MOTHER-TONCUE lt is whispered that the English teachers have a secret laboratory where they break up clauses, hang participles and search with a microscope for the germs which produce an unhealthy state in students' expressions. Guiding the experiments, to strengthen the program of instruction in communication skills, is Miss Leonhardy. GLORIOUS ADVENTURE The social studies chairman, Miss McNeese, with her "co-mates and brothers" in intel- lectual finesse, prepares intensive study for willing pupils. The idea is to give the students a background by which they can interpret contemporary political and social movements, to enable them to participate intelligently in governmental affairs, to make them conscious that citizenship in a democracy is a heritage of great value, to develop the consciousness that socially useful work within the ability of the person to perform is really significant. MEET SOME MAC-ICIANS COMMERCIAL: Mrs. Boerstler, Miss Dickison, Mrs. Haglund, Mr. Hiller, Mrs. Iohnson, Miss C. jones, Miss McCall, Mrs. Olson INDUSTRIAL: Mr. Brown, Mr. Cyllenswan, Mr. Lowe, Mr. Miller, Mr. Phillips, Mr. Wirths PHYSICAL EDUCATION: Mr. Bright, Mrs. Cole, Mr. Donahue, Captain Eaton, Miss Mason, Sergeant MacDowell, Miss O'Hara, Mr. Roberts, Mr. Stearns In the science laboratories the saying is: "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing." So the teachers strive to keep their students on the safe side by "larning" them much. For the scientific minded the opportunities for pioneering are unlimited, the frontiers of chemistry, physics, physiology, biology, and agriculture have scarcely been touched. Directing the department this semester is Miss Nellie Rogers. FIGURES, KEYS, AND OPEN DOORS In the commercial department the theory taught is supplemented by the practice neces- sary to orientate the student into the business world. Stenographers serve as secretaries to the administrators and faculty: salesmen sell in downtown stores, bookkeepers work in the student-body business offices. Many step into positions after being graduated. Mrs. Boerstler is the Chairman. SHOP-TALK "We learn to do by doing" is an axiom put into practice in then industrial arts. Follow- ing a hobby or learning a trade, a boy 'finds ample fields to conquer by actually working in wood, metal, auto, print, electric shops and in drafting. The modern economic system is fraught with opportunities for skilled artisans. We are doing our part to provide trained tech- nicians for American industry. TO YOUR HEALTH! Those poor, dismal young creatures you see every day near the gym, freezing in the frigidity of morning or wilting in the disconcerting heat of the spring afternoons, are the physical education students, who have high hopes of achieving the Greek ideal, a perfect balance between healthy bodies and vigorous minds. Both boys and girls are kept mentally and physically on their toes by scientific training. fifty-seven WHAT DO YOU SPEAK? No such dire result can happen to a Hamiltonian student of a foreign language as to find himself equipped with only a "yes" and "no" vocabulary. So thorough is the learning in the Foreign Language department, under the leadership of Mme. Leshin, that the dilemma at the Tower of Babel would have been solved had our bilinguals been present. Too bad they were born too late to make their bid for fame. HOME INTEREST THEME No more complaints about rocky biscuits, no more untrained housewives or bachelors. Courses in domestic art show homemaking to be a dignified career. Caterers trained by Mrs. Wyvell step into lucrative positions. Social arts teaches students to overcome the inexcusable handicap of faulty etiquette and to enjoy social experiences in and away from home. In fact, the department teaches everything to make a well-rounded social being. Chairman, Mrs. Pier. GREEKS CON FOUNDED! The three Graces of ancient Greece are overshadowed by the talents of our art teachers. Their contributions to our school life include posters, drawings and paintings. The department teaches students to understand the mysteries of the moderns, as well as the old masters. The chairman this semester is Miss Marie Scott. MUSICAL NOTES The musicians of our hallowed halls find varied fields in which to develop their talents. For the singers there are glee clubs and choral organizations. For the musicians, concert and bands augment the work of the orchestra and string ensemble. Student composers have a chance to loose upon the world their gigantic fugues and soul-searching symphonies. fifty-eight ART: Miss Haynes, Miss Scott, Mrs, Sturtevant MUSIC: Mrs. Bogart, Mrs. Leonard, Mr. Bernstein MATHEMATICS: Mr. Brockhouse, Miss Kellar, Miss Newcomb, Mr. Rosemont, Mrs. Weston LANGUAGES: Miss Dunlap, Mrs. Galindo, Mrs. Leshin, Mr. Silver HOUSEHOLD ARTS: Mrs. Pier, Miss Sherer, Mrs. Wyvell QUESTIONS OF THE DAY Girls, will you be able to budget your income-or your husband's-wisely? Boys, are you going down in history as a great engineer, soldier, naval officer, business-man, or lust as a good provider? Whatever your life plan, the mathematics department is here to help make it a success. The chairman is Miss Lucille Kellar. BOOK STUFF As far as our library is concerned, that hungry little grub which eats the pages and covers of books fthereby truly digesting knowledgel is an extinct species. Under the capable iuris- diction of Mrs. Theresa Fulford, the clerks and staff keep the shelves in good order, collect fines for overdue books, aid students in research-also those disinclined to action in getting library assignments-and keep books in repair. The efficiency of our library would serve as a model to other institutions of its kind. FLOOD CONTROL To keep the business that floods the administrative heart of our school from overwhelm- ing the principals, to be the clearing house for information for teachers: to meet graciously all parents and visitors and to make them feel that Hamilton is as friendly as its reputationg to bear the brunt of irritating, irregular detailsg to see that the organization works with the least friction, are the duties of the office staff, besides doing clerical work.

' F all it Q " ll The graduating class rose to sing the Alma N ' , A l Mater. lt was almost over now, one more fare- ,' " l well message and they would be graduated. ' ' Suddenly she realized this was her last . aud call in Waidelich Hall, incredible! lt thrilled Q44 1, 'ff her, yet tears gathered in her eyes, and that . lump in her throat made it hard to sing. i Uni Her glance wandered over the faces of the class-her class. How proud they looked in their caps and gowns, their faces young and . eager! She remembered the fun they had had together, taking the common bond of their relationship for granted, never thinking of the day that would separate them. There was janet, one of her best friends, her head thrown back in an effort to suppress , tears. Standing beside her was Don, the worshipped football hero, who had pulled the team out of many a tough spot. In the back row stood the boy who had been her "one and only" i ever since the day he had taken the blame for her unintentional good aim, which had made the teacher the target for a flying eraser. There were others of her pals: dependable, understanding jim, his kind face twisted with , emotion, john, the school's "Brain" who had brought Hami many oratorical honors, Mike, , the tough guy, who incessantly crabbed about having to attend school, not looking as happy as he claimed he would be at graduation, Chuck, the schooI's wit, who was always good for ' a laugh and fun to have around, effervescent Dot, the chatterbox, who was always dishing l out the latest "have you heard" to an appreciative audience of fellow cats, Eddie and Lois, i l who had been going together for years, and were practically a Hamilton tradition, though there would be many other friends, these classmates, who were symbolic of some of her happiest hours, would for all time hold a special spot in her heart. It seemed odd that the memories of innumerable funny, unimportant things kept popping up, overshadowing the importance of graduation exercises. She recalled the year when they had been scrubs, scared stiff of this new adventure. How funny and little they must have looked, wild-eyed and fearful, yet full of curiosity and expectancy! The thrill of the football season, with the tingling excitement of all its glory, color, and exuberant school spirit, the rubber band and squirt gun phase, when practically everyone became the target of some unerring marksman, the girls with their sloppy joe sweaters practically dragging on the ground, the boys with their silly German haircuts looking like a bunch of convicts, the time a wad of gum snapped by some boy with a William Tell complex, had stuck in her curly locks, notebooks plastered with "Bored of Education" and other smart cracks, desks bearing the identification marks and designs of love-sick doodlers, plays that were a flop, those, a success, students piling into a car after a football victory, dashing wildly down the boulevard, yelling like mad, report card day, the day of judgement, with its howls and complaints, its surprises and few satisfactions from the minority group of geniuses, "Treasuries" autographed with nonsensical comments and sincere sentiments, spending an hour after school as a result of losing the race with the tardy bell. The teachers could always tell when she had been in detention for these days were about the only time she did any homework. How could she forget her teachers, broadminded and helpful. We-ell-er, of course there were a few who were rather difficult at times, such as the day her algebra teacher had inter- cepted a note to the boy across the aisle and made her read it out loud. She was glad it wasn't one of her notes on the slushy side, as she nonchalantly rose and read an innocenl request for a pencil. There had been the tight-lipped, firm teachers, the sweet little ones, the tall, efficient ones, the fat, jolly ones, the young, modern ones, short, energetic, bristling ones, but best of all the understanding, reasonable ones who could take a joke, use a little slang, and weren't afraid to break down and laugh. Especially did she remember how sympathetic, though probably amused, her social studies teacher had been when she, the student, confided about a secret crush. ' Yes, teachers, too, played a major part in her parade of favorite memories. As the days had sped by, keeping her busy every minute with school work, pleasures, and activities, she had become more and more a part of her school. Finally the breath-taking whirl- wind of her senior year, Color Day, when, proud and haughty, they had paraded around in their new sweaters, the prom, with all the boys dressed in monkey suits and the girls in new formals, the Senior Mothers' Tea, when the class had proudly presented their mothers to the curious faculty, the senior breakfast, at which teachers and students acted more like a bunch of kids than usual. Now-her graduation, her greatest thrill and deepest regret. They had all looked forward to being graduated, all said they would be glad to get out of the "prison," but now that the day had come, she realized that they felt as sorry as she, sorry, that they would never again be a part of the fun and gaiety, the tragedies and struggles that made up this great adventure of high school. ' No! She was wrong! Wherever she went, she would always be a part of her high school, for it would forever be a part of her. She could never forget Hamilton, for its memories were too deeply woven into the pattern of her life. i FIELD WCDRK The past year has been a memorable one for Hamilton in the field of sports. As a follow- up to the great football team of last semester, the Yankees produced championship teams in both Baseball and Gym work. Outstanding stars became numerous. On the Gym Team, johnny Kanda was easily the best gymnast in the city, loe Lopez of the baseball team was the finest hurler who ever pitched in the Western league, barring none, and Daryl Failor was the fastest man in the city in both the 100 and 220 yard dashes, greatly bolstering' an otherwise weak track team. Eddy Kalaiian, mainstay of the football squad, was another track star, winning the western league championship in the shot put. These many fine athletes, coupled with the fact that all Hamilton is greatly sports-minded, have brought our high school to the forefront in athletic competition, not only in the league but also in the city. Besides the outstanding accomplishments of the gym and baseball teams, the golf team, little regarded in the eyes of most Hamiltonians, brought a great deal of attention to the school. The team is undoubtedly one of the finest in the city and may win the city championships, an outstanding achievement for a school where the sport is regarded as a minor form of recrea- tion. For the first time in many years, the Yankee Cee track team failed to win the western league championship. The team still made a fine showing, however, and produced many stars, among whom were Bill Wade, western league sprint champion, and Paul Wainer, who was never far behind the fast-moving Wade. All in all, Hamilton may look back upon this year as one of the finest in her sporting history and future teams will be hard-put to equal the many records set during this semester eighty-three eighty-four ,aww .x..Q - . . . .. . .. .. This year's varsity track team, weaker in many respects than last year's mighty aggrega- tion, was dogged by bad luck throughout the earlier part of the season. The first and only practice meet of the season, against a powerful Polytechnic Squad, was lost, mainly because of Poly's huge team. The second meet, against Dorsey, was lost when the Hamilton relay team was disqualified because of an illegal pass. Next, against University High, Hamilton lost by a large number of points. This meet was the most disastrous of the season. Bill Moats, 440 runner and member of the relay team, having spiked himself before the meet, was unable to run. Gail Duffy, sprinter, ran into a fence at the end of the 220 and injured himself, and Daryl Failor, Hamilton's one man track team, injured his leg while broad jumping. Failor, fastest man in the city, was the mainstay of the Hamilton track team throughout the season in every meet, running in the lOO and 220 yard dashes, broad jumping, andf anchoring the relay team. Up to the time of this writing, Failor has yet to be beaten in league competition in any event. ln the University meet, to offset the formidable duo of Smart and Elser, Failor ran the low hurdles in the amazing time of twenty seconds. Besides Failor, the team was bolstered by several others. Ed Smith, standing 6'2" in his stocking feet, one of the best 220 men in the city, is expected to be the mainstay of the Hamilton track team next year. Bob Ayale was also prominent, running the 440 in most of the meets, but was not too successful against the many fine quarter milers in the Western League, but much is anticipated of him next year. In the half mile Kenny Slee was easily' the best of the Hamilton squad and with further training ought to develop into the best in the league next year. Other sprinters were Fred Ruffolo, Gail Duffy, jack Hogan, and Bill Moats. ln the shot put, Hamilton was unusually strong, boasting two men who probably could beat any other men in the city. Eddie Kalajian, mainstay of the football team, set a new school record by throwing the twelve pound ball well over fifty feet. jarvis Carpenter, who has another year of competition, was not far behind him . Other shot putters were Kenny White and Art David. ln the hurdles Al King, Don Howley and Bob McElwaine were the principal representatives of the green and brown. Alf Larsen, probably one of Hamilton's best pole vaulters, cleared the bar well over eleven feet many times. At this writing, the team has yet to win a meet, but with the individual strength that the squad boasts, should place well in the league and city finals. l From all rational considerations, the Hamilton lightweight division of the short panty team-to the uninitiated, that'sf.'the Bee track team-should be unbeatable. In the sprints are such flashes as jimmy Moore, jim Abro, Herb Baker, Gene Lindstrom, and Sam Boone. In the distance races, Bob Weaver and jim Coleman seem to be invincible. George Rock is probably the best Bee shot putter in the city. Despite all this strength the Bees lost the first two meets of the season, in the third, they finally lived up to their capabilities and swamped a downtrodden University team by an overwhelming score. Before garnering this first win, however, they lost to Polytechnic by a huge score and then were badly beaten by a very strong Dorsey aggregation, which is favored to win the league championship. The tradition that Hamilton always produces great Cee track teams is more than a myth. For these past many years the midgets have never failed to make an impressive showing in any kind of competition, and this year's team seems to be no exception to the rule. Although they lost a practice meet to Polytechnic, in the first league meet which was against Susan Dorsey High School, the Cees took every first place and won by an overwhelming score. On the following Friday against a strong University team, the Yankee midgets again showed their superiority and swamped the Warrior aggregation. Bill Wade, undefeated in league competition, was the outstanding sprinterg Wainer, almost as fast, was never far behind the driving Wade, Other outstanding Cee men were: Schwartz and Herman, sprintsg Ewertz, 660 yard rung Winship and Sullivan, pole vault: Cummings, high iumpg and Amato, shot put. eighty-five eighty-six The Four Horsemen of the Hamilton Boys' Gym Department stand here revealed in all their glory. Well-known for their excellent work in all sports, these active mentors are, left to right, Bernard Donahue, l. Cameron Stearns, Howard Roberts and Emory Bright. Sparked by the phenomenal hurling of joe Lopez, this year's Varsity baseball team swept to another league championship and set some sort of a record by winning eight straight games before bowing to the second place University team. The tournament "jinx" that has dogged the baseball team for two seasons was again in evidence this year as Hamilton, after beating both Bell and Gardena by overwhelming scores, was edged out of the Dorsey Invitational tournament by Fremont, last year's champions Champ Lopez allowed only three hits in the Bell game, while his team mates pounded out eleven runs. The first league game, against Los Angeles high school, ended in victory for the Yankee team and was the first of a long string of defeats for the luckless Roman nine. The L. A. team lost seven straight games before they finally managed to win a league contest. Maybe it was the thorough beating administered by Hamilton that discouraged them. Against University, the Hamilton team again proved itself to be one of the best teams in the city when the hitherto unbeaten Warrior nine was trampled by the rampaging Yankees to the tune of a 7 to I defeat. After this the Yankee nine drubbed in succession Beverly, Dorsey, Hollywood, Venice, and Fairfax to cinch the league championship. Some consternation was felt when the team lost two games in a row, one to University and then one to Hollywood, but members of the team expressed confidence that they would soon hit their winning stride again. Besides joe Lopez, who seems to be almost a certainty for all city honors, others who played a sparkling brand of baseball for Hamilton were: Bob Bowman, who replaced Al Pet- rangelo, catcher, Bud Beringhele, first base, Clancy Smyres, short stop, Bill Lillie, second base, joe Slaton, left field, j. D. Day, right fieldg Rich Gordon, center field, and Bob Crandall, third base. This year's team was coached by Bernie Donahue. It seems that Mr. Donahue has done right well by the baseball squad-for a beginner. WESTERN LEAGUE CHAMPIONS Crandall, 3rd base Lopez, pitcher Gordonne, outfielder Beringhele, lst base Slaton, outfielder Bowman, catcher Constantino, outfielder Smyres, short stop Day, outfielder Lillie, 2nd base S eighty-seven Indicative of the growing interest in tennis, the largest turnout in Hamilton history was registered this term when 32 students reported to Mr. Plummer at the start of the tennis season. This huge squad included such veterans as Tony Gaebel, Larry Schneider, james Cary, Dean Thomas, joe Fenole, james Simonton, and Austin Sellery. Against Marshall, although both Tony Gaebel and Dean Thomas played brilliant tennis, Hamilton lost the match, the score standing 5-2, Fairfax chalked up the same score the following week, allowing only Sellery and Gaebel to win their matches. The Colonial squad was paced by a pint sized netman by the name of Faulkenburg, whose uncanny returns had the Hamilton racketeers on the run from the start. Dorsey was Hamilton's next opponent. The Yankee netmen came through strongly to trample the weak Dons under a big score. This is the only league meet that Hamilton has won so far this season, but under Mr. Plummer's careful coaching, the boys are rapidly rounding into their best form and should win a few matches before the season closes. Golfing, usually regarded as a mild form of exercise for sedentary old men, has taken on new life. This ancient sport was given what is referred to in sporting circles as a "shot in the arm" when no less than fifteen ambitious golfers answered Mr. Comerford's call for volun- teers to make up the Yankee golf squad. Leading the group were Randall Sivadge, Roland Winchell and jimmy Lestelle, veterans of last year's group which managed to place second in the city standings. eighty eight l Led by johnny Kanda, probably the finest gymnast in the city, the Hamilton gym team won the Western League championship this term. Kanda consistently won three events, the parallel bars, high bar, and rings. Other Yankee stars and their specialties were: Howard Hilborn, Bruce Sellery, and Vernon Mettler, free exercise, Dave McCutcheon and Bob lohnson, side horse, and Leo O'Neil and Ronald Ferges, rope climb. The only meet that the Yankee gymnasts lost throughout the season was a very close one that they dropped to Belmont. After this setback, which was unimportant because it was only a practice meet, the Hamilton musclemen went on to defeat Los Angeles, University, Fairfax, Dorsey, and Venice to ring up their second consecutive undefeated season. Hamilton has not lost a league dual gym meet since l938. To top off this splendid record, Hamilton went into the Western League finals and walked off with almost all the honors, beating their closest opponent by a big score. Those muscle-bound Herculeans you see swinging around the gym are not apes, but merely members of the gym club. Organized to promote gymnastics at Hamilton, the Gym Club is composed chiefly of members of the gym teamg however, anyone may join.

For his assistants, Dave appointed Howard lennings, Bruce Sellery, and Kenny Bachelder. All four of the boys have been a help in bringing out more spectators for the baseball, track, and gym events that are notoriously disregarded by the student body, despite the fact that the gym and baseball teams were L f on their way to leagueschampionshipf The boys were supported by the Rally Committee, which was considerably enlarged this year.

NEW PREXY, I am that little speck of dust in the corner that has managed to escape the broom, my brushing enemy, year after year. I have never desired to be blown about as other bits of dust, but preferred to remain in familiar surroundings, indulging in my chief joy, watching the succession of the G.A.A. Never has a group engaged in competitive sports been friendlier or more enthusiastic than this semester's. Their attitude of fair play thrilled even my dusty soul. The shades of ladies of the past must be frightfully distressed by the boisterous activities of the ladies of today. There's not one of the moderns that can faint at all, let alone daintily. Fainting is not one of my lady- ships' accomplishments, but whanging a baseball is. Unusual interest in the national sport was evinced when two hundred and fifty girls reported for places on teams. No longer will feminine spectators at games annoy the males by sublime ignorance of baseball nomen- clature. The traditional social event, called the "spread", was a success from the standpoint of a "good time had by all" and the quality ag the quantity of the food and the program. No minciigsappetites among these girls! Not a crumb did they leaxi for mv friend the mouse. The entertainment called the "All Sister" program was unique in that it was produced by sisters. It is surprising how many pairs of sisters there are in the G.A.A., all very talented. To endthe spread, the girls danced to recorded music. Next came the all important initiation. Weren't the officers smart to have it on April Fool's Day? Weren't the initiates fooled? They were required to serve the Letterwomen with lunches, to wear picka-ninny braids, mismated sox and shoes, and many ridiculous costumes. Again plenty of food to satisfy, but not enough to satiate. There was great excitement about the jefferson Playday. The girls from three other schools were good players, but no better than ours, so l gathered from their conversation. At least, they came home so thrilled with their accomplishment that they filled the old gym with their wild, inharmonious singing and lusty shouting. l was afraid they would cause such reverberations that l should be shaken from my corner. The most important playdav was Hamie's own. Our guests were North Hollywood's, Roosevelt's, and Mar- shall's C.A.A. Our girls, clever as always, planned a most original entertainment. Being hostesses, we cannot boast about our superior playing. These girls seem never to be tired of eating. Their closing "nicie" was a banquet. But more important than satisfying the inner woman was the awarding of letters, stars, and service stars and the installation of officers. The girls expressed sincere joy as each award was made. l tell you, the G.A.A. is funl Oh! Oh! Here comes the custodian. I must squeeze back into the corner. A hasty farewell. l hope your C.A.A. will afford you as much enioyment as it did the past president. Your dusty reporter, A. Little Dust lPeggy Young, Secretaryl ni nety-three GAA.
