TO MY CLASS
Forward, Class of thirty-seven,
Nor stopg reap victories anewg
And Hope, God's greatest gift from heav'n,
Shall see ye thru.
Forward, to those higher standards,
Nor rest, until the top you've wong
And noble deeds from every hand
Shine as the sun.
Oh, Forward, Classmates, carry on,
Nor turng and as years go by,
Keep in your hearts the golden name
Of Sutter High.
As we, the Seniors, are leaving school this J une, we should look back
and try to make out the benefits of our high school education and the pleasure
and happiness we have received. A little recollection can easily show how
important and valuable were our four years here.
Four years ago this August, we entered Sutter High to achieve a higher
education, 11ot just to spend our time. Our aim was the development of co-
operation, wholesome friendship, and better citizenship.
Now, looking hack, we realize that we have learned to cooperate in our
class and club activities, in the class room, and on the athletic field. It is
well that we have done so, for very little can be accomplished in this world
We have developed a fine sense of friendship by our association with
all our classmates and acquaintances. ln grammar school we make our first
friends, and in high school we have increased our ability to work and get
along with others. Friendship is the essence of society. Who could live
Also, we have learned the meaning of better citizenship, not only in
our classwork, but also by good sportsmanship on the playing field. As we
are the future voters of our country, it is our duty to become better citizensg
and with our high school education behind us, we feel as though we have
taken a big step toward the fulfillment of that obligation.
Since the knowledge and instruction received in high school is the
highest education most of our citizens get today, it is little wonder that we re-
gard so highly all that we have learned in the past four years. Those of us
who will go to college will also he thankful for their high school training, for
it will prove a strong and firm foundation for future work in the educational
Held. In any event, our high school education will he equally advantageous,
for the art of thinking, which is cultivated in high school, is always useful in
any work or occupation.
Education is the basis of democracy, without it democracies fail, and
dictatorships spring up. We have taken part in the government of our
student body and have learned something about the principles of democracyg
therefore, we feel better equipped to step into the affairs of our national
government and take a hand in American progress. '
Perhaps we can not yet see all the benefits of our high school education,
but we can readily realize and appreciate these few mentioned above. We
have now finished our high school careers and are heading toward higher
things, but often shall we have the opportunity to recall the memories of the
happiest and best four years of our lives.

Thirty years ago, on the eve of my graduation from high school, I
began to think of the future that was in store for the class of '37, which was
graduating the next night. What I thought then differs greatly from the real
future of that class. Thirty years ago, I never dreamed that the class of 1937
would seek its fortune in such scattered places. Think of it! My search for
each of my former classmates lasted for five years. My search was very
strenuous, and many times my quests would seem hopeless, but my efforts
have been greatly repaid. thru the satisfaction of knowing the outcome of
the lives of my former friends.
Probably all ofyou will 'wonder why I have undertaken such a task of
seeking my classmates: Well, one day as I was en route to New York in a
transport plane, I happened to hear over the radio that a certain man, by the
name of Kenneth Deaver, employed as a bodyguard, had by some brave act
checked the assassination of the president of Mexico. I thought to myself,
"Why, I know that manlvg and my mind sped back many years to 1937.
And in thinking of 1937, I began to wonder what the rest of the class of '37
were doing in the world.
Therefore my curiosity compelled me to seek out my former class-
mates. When I landed in New York, I immediately hired a score of world-
wide travelers and investigators to accomplish my task, and after giving them
a list of the class of '37, I sent them to every part of the earth. Months
passed, and I received no Word from the special investigators. In the mean-
time I began a private search of my own. I also made little headway in the
first few months, but one night when I was in Chicago, I chanced to see the
following inscription in neon lights: "The Willis 81 Hinds Steam Laundry".
In the fever of excitement I entered the establishment, and there I found
Willie and Al talking over the laundry business. What then followed was a
long talk of old times that lasted until almost daybreak.
When I returned to my hotel, I was given a telegram that had come
from England. This was its contents: "Af ter much inquiring and searching
I discovered that John McGee is a member of the House of Lords in Eng-
land". Lord McGee. Boy, what a name! Soon more telegrams were re-
ceived, but this time from San Francisco. Mary Golovich was found to be
a doctor in a large hospital, and in the same hospital, Robert Jenkins was
discovered nursing wounds which were caused as a result of the crash of the
mail airplane which he was piloting. Our search was up to this time very
slow, but nevertheless we kept on.
I kept in close contact with the members of my search party. One year
had gone by and no one else' had been located, until one day I heard from
Argentina that Donald Estey and Barney Cassella were cowboys on a large
cattle ranch. I was greatly surprised to hear that these two had gone so far
south to seek their fortune, but soon I found out that Argentina was not very
far south, for I later learned that Remo Canale had gone to Little America
on a scientific expedition and was not expected to return for good many
I soon began to receive reports from the Orient to the effect that Jack
Nickley and Helen Perovich were in China as missionaries. That was not all
concerning the Orient, for I also found out that Aldo Pinotti was in China,
too, but as special ambassador to that countryg and that Helen Pinelli was
his private secretary. Our class was surely represented in China.
What surprised me the most was the information I received that Lester
Stowers and Charles Quirolo were in Hollywood making pictures. On learn-
ing that bit of news, I soon sought a movie book, and there on the cover I
saw that fame-seeking Hollywood team. I was almost stunned.
Many months passed again before I received any more information.
One day when I had entered the airport in Sacramento, I was astonished to
see that an aviatrix was preparing to pilot the plane in which I was to leave
for San Francisco. After approaching the plane, I discovered that the avia-
trix was Mildred Emerson. But that was not all, for just then the co-pilot of
the same plane appeared from the hangar, and to my utter amazement, the
co-pilot turned out to be Jean Darling, another of my classmates, long sought
for. It was a pleasure to fly with two old friends at the controls. After we
had reached our destination, we had a long talk, and it was thru this con-
versation that I learned that Adeline Moroni was a U. S. G-woman---what a
strange bit of news! QI never thought that women would be U. S. detectives,
but evidently Adeline thought they couldj. The two aviatrixes also had
more news to tell me concerning my world-wide search. They informed me
that Alfred Pinelli owned a ranch in South America, and that from what
they heard he was a successful ostrich farmed. QI wonder whether Freddy
has any trouble pulling necks out of the sand?j
After bidding my two friends a happy farewell, I went into a tavern
for refreshments, and at the door stood the proprietress, as if she were wait-
ing especially for me. It was Jean LeValley. Boy, what a break for me!
Another of the lost was found. The usual old-time talk was started and it
wasrft until two hours later that I finally departed.
I had been in San Francisco only a week when I received a cablegram
from my special investigators at Australia, who were working at that point.
The cablegram expressed these few words: '6Charles Cook and Clarence
Barone, the two inseparables, are sheep-herders in this country." I always
knew that Charlie and Clarence would remain together a few years after
graduation, but I didn't realize that they would still be together after all
these years. They say that an unbreakable rope binds real friendship. It
certainly is true in this case.
Six months passed and I was still at work in San Francisco, doing very
little except eagerly waiting news from my special investigators. I was in
my oihce one day when I received a long distance telephone call from South
Dakota. That call informed me that Wilsoli Grillo was a successful poli-
tician in that state. The first thing that entered my mind then was that people
probably began to believe the things that Wilson told them. It was the other
way around in our high school days.
One whole year had passed---I was nearly disgusted. Soon my hopes
were renewed, for I received a report from Russia that Margaret Bulger and
Carmen Garcia had become socialists and were residing there together with
many other Americans who had followed that same path.
Already a long time had been spent in the search, which had tired many
members of the investigating staff. Some returned, others were determined
to find the few who were yet unfound. The search continued and hopes were
dwindling until one hot summer afternoon at the beach, a messenger boy
brought me a telegram, which read as follows: "laura Pool found. Also Vin-
cent Kriezenbeck. Both are deep-sea divers for the U. S. Navy". fNo won-
der they were hard to find, for they spent much of their lives under waterj
I had no sooner read that telegram than someone tapped me on the
shoulder. I looked around and for a while I couldnit believe my eyes, for
there stood Noveen Needham. After I regained my normal senses we began
to talk of old timesg and did I appear stupid when I learned that for the last
twenty years she had been living two blocks from my residence in San Fran-
cisco. This last experience brought an end to my long search.
Oh yes, I almost forget to tell you what my line of business isg that is,
besides looking for peoplej : Mike D'Agostini and I are insurance salesmen
in San Francisco. We were fortunate enough to carry a pretty good line,
for our business fwhile it lastedj earned us a fair fortune.
Finally, after five years, I had located all the members of the class of
1937. It cost me a lot of time and money, but I was willing to pay any price
to learn what the destiny of the class of '37 had been.
Goes on, and from its marching feet
Cleans off the dust of passing falacies.
And stops for naught, yet in its wake
Are left the marks of countless pleasantries.
A heartless tyrant ever seems,
Yet after it, a brighter vision sees
The good, the beautiful it leavesg
Those priceless things, those cherished memories.

Four years ago the present Senior class had an enrollment of about
45, but now it has dwindled to the small number of 30. Nevertheless, al-
though there are but a few of us, we have always done things in a big way,
and have enjoyed our class activities immensely. Our leaders in our last
year here have been John McGee, presidentg Aldo Pinotti, vice-president,
Helen Pinelli, secretary and treasurerg and Miss Palmer, adviser.
Our representatives on the gridiron were: Wilson Grillo Remo Canale,
Jack Nickley.. Donald Estey, Kenneth Deaver, Aldo Pinotti, A1 Hinds, and
John McGee. Those of us who took part in basketball were: A1 Hinds, Jack
Nickley, Vincent Kriezenbeck, and John McGee. Our baseball participants
were: Bob Jenkins, Jack Nickley, Al Hinds, Remo Canale, Altero D'Agostini,
John McGee, Wilson Grillo, Donald Estey, and Charles Cook.
In the Christmas play, '4Pleased Ta Meetchan, our actors were: No-
veen Needham, Aldo Pinotti, Mary Golovich, Vincent Kriezenbeck, and
John McGee. The Seniors who saw service in the operetta, wfune Inn, were:
Jean Darling, Mildred Emerson, Carmen Garcia, Mary Golovich, Charles
Quirolo, Donald Estey, Wilson Crillo, and Clarence Barone.
At this time, Miss Palmer has selected the Senior Play, 6'Who's Who
At Tourist Homen, but has not chosen the cast. The play is a mystery with
comedy, and the action takes place in a rural community in a house suspected
of being haunted. We feel safe in saying that it will be a success.
Since last year we gave a splendid Junior Prom with original decora-
tions, we are preparing to put on a bigger and better Senior Ball. We want
to make our last act as students of Sutter High one to be long remembered.
Now we wish to say farewell to our present Alma Mater, Sutter High.
L Senior Farewell i
Dear Sutter Hi, as we depart
On life's rough sea to steer a course,
A pledge we give you from each heart,
You, who have been our greatest source
Of Happiness: that from this day
No deed we'll do to bring you shame,
But ever hold your standard high,
And be a credit to your name.
Oh Alma Mater true, farewell!
Our days of childhood now are o'er.
We, whom you've sheltered for four years,
New go to seek another shoreg
And so We hope in years to come,
While threads of time are being woven,
That this, our class, youill not forget:
Our Senior Class of '37.
The Junior Class has excelled its formed achievements by more ways
than ever before.
The class started the year by winning a cup given by the student body
to the class that first joined the student body 100 per cent.
Besides the pep the class had, this added much more to itg so they
started the year off with a MBANGN. The class officers were the best of the
three years. They were: President, Sam Lugonjag vice-president, Clarice
Lawrence, secretary-treasurer, Kathryn Chupichg and class advisor, Miss
There were a great number of boys that turned out for sports, and
practically all were lettermen. In dramatics there was also a large turn out.,
and when We mention the Junior Prom, we must also recall that it was one of
the best ever put over. The hall was smartly decorated and the whole aff air
was a huge success.
The entire class worked hard to make the reputation it has. We are
very proud of our achievements and think we have well lived up to the name
HJUNIOR CLASS OF l937". -
Well, folks, here we are united as people have never been before. We
are so proud of ourselves that it's a shame. We must tell you what great
students this wonderful Sophomore Class has been. We must tell you, for
we know that there will never be another class like it.
Our husky football lettermen were great workersg so to let them know
we appreciate their sportsmanship, we'll put their names in black and White.
They were as follows: Steve Frinchaboy, George Allen, and Vlfayne Pillsbury.
Our might basketball heroes were as follows: Roy Perez, Jack Golo-
vich, Cooper Morabe, Wayne Pillsbury, and George Allen.
The greatest song birds of the year were Margaret Quirolo, Claudine
Murphy, and Eugene Barone.
Before the students of this class think they did too much for their
country, Weill sign off, knowing that no other class will surpass it.
On August 24, 1936, 48 very nervous and frightened freshmen enter-
ed Sutter Creek Union High. Because of the kind treatment we received, and
the dance the sophomores gave us after the initiation, and in order to show
that we had no hard feelings against the sophomores, we gave them a dance
The officers we elected for our class were John Tallia., president, John
Arnese, vice-president, Betty Mcee, secretary, and Mrs. Bowls, sponsor.
In basketball our representatives were John Tallia, Jesus Garcia, Wil-
liam Johnson, Clement Castro, Joe Vasquez, Jim Smith and Bobby Jurovich.
The boys that went out for football were Jesus Garcia, Clement Castro, Jim
Smith, Joe Vasquez, and William Johnson. Jesus Garcia, Alfred Fall,
Vernon Greilich, and Fred Fisher signed up for baseball.
The freshman tennis team was composed of Kenneth Hunt, Betty
McGee, Joan Erickson, Caroline Allen, Audrey Crain and Betty Barton.
We are very proud of the part Betty Weston had in the Christmas Play
and of the parts Betty Schoonover and Louis Gacanich had in the operetta.
After all these things, we have high hopes for our class in future years.

On September fourth, the Sophomore Class started the social wheel
revolving with a snappy Freshman initiation based on the idea of a recreation
park. Donald Drake was master of ceremonies. The Whole student body
looked forward to the initiation because no hazing had been permitted the
first week of school.
The second spoke of the social wheel was created on September 18,
when the Freshman Return Dance was given. The dance was enjoyed by
everyone who attended.
The Rally and Rally Dance formed the third spoke of the social wheel.
Seeking to avenge our 6-0 defeat of last year, the freshmen, along with the
rest of the student body, prepared a huge bonfire. On the evening of Novem-
ber 9, the bonfire, after being sucessfully guarded over the week-end, was
lighted. The dance that followed the lighting of the fire was enjoyed by
The social wheel was given another whirl on December 18, when the
Christmas Play "Pleased Ta Meetchav was presented. The play portrayed a

shaped the fifth spoke of our busy social wheel. The organizations that
sponsored the dance sent invitations to the Jackson and lone High Schools.
Our gym was gaily decorated.
The material for our sixth spoke was derived from our operetta, direct-
ed by Miss Connolly. The scene depicted the inside of a radio broadcasting

The Skip Staff of '37 Wishes to thank the student body for its faithful
efforts to raise money for our annual. We also appreciate the fact that
Jackson decided to go in partnership with us in putting out this annual.
This year, the staff did not select a motif for the Skip. With the help
of various classes, including art, commercial, and all English classes, we

Last year John McGee, under the guiding hand of Miss Ryan, won the
county oratorical contest. His speech was based on the Supreme Court. This
was the second time that we have won the contest.
Altero D'Agostini, winner of the county oratorical contest in 1935,
entered the California Crusaders, Contest last year. He represented this
county at Roseville where he finished second. Altero is trying out for this
contest again this year.
This year Margaret Burger, Elsie Jane MacClanahan, and Eileen Smith
are trying out for the county contest sponsored by the American Legion. We
hope that one of them will succeed in winning the cup for us. Q

Z 1 I 4 '
The Sutter Creek Thundering Herd, under the guidance of a new coach,
Del Poe, won the Mother Lode Championship for the third time in a row,
setting a new record. The Herd team kept the record of not having been
defeated by Sonora on our home field.
Our popular coach brought a green team along day by day and put on
the gridiron a team filled with pep and fire, and well coached. During his
first year, Mr. Poe guided us to a championship of the Mother Lode. We
lost one only, to a team in the valley, by a score of 12 to 6, but our team
was far the superior team.
For his team Coach Poe picked McGee, LE, Nickley, LT, Case, LG,
Pinotti, C3 Estey, RGg Frinchaboy, RT, Hinds and Tarn, RE, Pillsbury and
Zarate, Q, Lugonja, LH, Canale, RHg and Grillo and Perdue, F. Also the
team had plenty of capable substitutes as: Deaver, Golovich, Jones, Kipp,
Lawrence, Allen, and many more who were good also.
Preston zrs. Sutter Creek
In the heat of over 100 degrees, the Sutter's famed Herd traveled to
Preston for a football game.
Preston received and were forced to punt to Sutter. Through the first
quarter both teams failed to advance to the other's scoring territory. In the
second quarter, Sutter failed to take advantage of the breaks that were in
their favor and failed to score. Preston, on the other hand, played a defensive
ball game for the rest of the half. The score at the half was 0 to 0.
In the third quarter, Preston ran almost at will through the tired Sutter
teamg hut in the fourth quarter, Sutter had some reserve strength, and started
to march down the Held. They scored on a pass, hut failed to get the extra
point. When the gun ended the game, Sutter was on Preston's two-yard line
ready to score. Final score Sutter 6, Preston 0.
Galt vs. Sutter Creek
Galt traveled to Sutter Creek to engage in a football game with the
Sutter Creek team fresh from a tie game with Christian Brothers which they
were still elated over.
- Sutter kicked off to Galt. Galt's hackfield moved down the Held, but
lost the ball on a fumble. Sutter received the hall and moved up the Held
hut Galt intercepted a pass. Both teams fought evenly at midHeld. The
first quarter ended with the score 0 to 0.
In the second quarter, Sutter completed two long passes and was in
pay dirt when a pass again was intercepted. This time Galt marched down
the Held and finally pushed over a touchdown. The extra ponit was not good.
Galt led 6 to 0.
Galt kicked off to Sutter Creek who marched down the Held, but when it
looked as if Sutter might score, the half ended with Galt leading 6 to 0.
In the third quarter, Galt received, marched down the Held, then punted
out of hounds on the two yard line. Sutter kicked, but a Galt man broke
through and blocked the kick. Galt made a safety and led 8 to 0.
Galt kicked off to Sutter and Sutter came hack to the thirty yard line.
Then a fumble took place and Galt recovered. Once again they had the hall
on Sutter's thirty yard line as the third quarter ended.
In the fourth quarter, Sutter recovered Galt's fumble, took the hall, and
marched down to the Galt ten yard line where a Galt man intercepted a pass
and kicked up the field to Sutter. Here Sutter marched down the field to a
touchdown and made the extra point. The score was 7 to 8 in favor of Galt.
Sutter kicked off to Galt and the Galt man returned it to midfield. The
Galt quarterback kicked out of bounds on Sutter's two yard line. Here Sutter
with passes and a strong running attack went down the field to the ten yard
line as the gun ended the game with Galt leading 8 to 7.
Roseville vs. Sutter Creek
On a clear, Warm day, the Sutter's Thundering Herd motored to Rose-
ville to engage in an annual football game. Sutter received and took the hall
down the field almost at will in the first quarter, but because of penalties,
were set hack from scoring., The Roseville team was stopped cold in their
running attack, Sutter breaking through and throwing them for losses.
In the second quarter, Sutter marched down the field into scoring posi-
tion. Witli a fourth down coming up, and the hall on the eight yard' line,
Lugonja faded for a pass to Tam, which chalked up six points for Sutter. An-
other pass to Canale netted the extra point, and the score was 7 to 0 in favor
of Sutter. The remainder of the half saw Sutter cleanly outplaying their
The third quarter an inspired Roseville team came out on the field.
Sutter took the kickoff and was stopped cold, then a long kick to a Roseville
safety man, who did some fancy stepping dowm the side lines to score a
touchdown by a sixty yard run. Roseville failed to convert, and the score
read Sutter 7, Roseville 6. Sutter took the kickoff , started a march down the
Held, and Lugonja threw a pass to McGee which was completed and the score
read Sutter 14-. Roseville 6. Sutter kicked off. The Roseville man ran it back
to the forty yard line. A powerful running attack moved rapidly down the
field, and Roseville pushed over a score and made the extra point, giving
14 to 13 in Sutter's favor at the end of the third quarter.
The fourth quarter saw Roseville on the attack. They took the lead
on an interception of a pass and a touchdown. They made the extra pointg
score, Roseville 20, Sutter 14. Another touchdown was scored by each team,
and at the end the score was 27-21 in Rosevilleis favor.
Sonora fvs. Sutter Creek
Sonora kicked to a Sutter man on the fifteen yard line and he ran it to
the forty yard line. Sutter marched up the field to the eight yard line before
losing the ball to Sonora on downs. Sonora marched to our twenty yard line,
where we took the ball on downs. Both teams fought evenly for the remain-
der of the first quarter. Score 0 to 0.
In the second, Sutteris offense was checked and the Sonora forward
wall gradually opened holes in our lines. Sutter held Sonora for downs on
the ten yard line and kicked out to midfield. Sonora went to the fifteen yard
line, where a Sutter Creek back intercepted a pass and ran it to the forty
yard line before he was brought to the ground. Sonora took the hall to the
two yard line where, with a first down and two to go for a score, Sonora just
managed to ,get a touchdown on their last play, but did not convert. Sutter
was behind 6 to O. Sonora kicked off and Sutter had the ball in midfield as
the gun sounded ending the half. Sonora leads Sutter 6 to 0.
In the third quarter, the offense of the Herd was not clicking, and
Sonora rushed through throwing the Sutter backs for big losses. Sutter was
tiring badly, but not giving up. The gun ended the third quarter with Sonora
leading 6 to 0.
A Sutter punt went up into the air where a Sonora man touched itg the
ball rolled around, and a Sutter man fell on it on the two yard line, scored
and tied at 6 and 6. Sutter kicked off to Sonora, who got the ball on the
forty-five yard line. On the next play, Sonora fumbled and Sutter recovered
with two minutes left to play and Sonora ahead on touch credits. It looked
like Sonora's game, but a long pass was good for a touchdown which gave us
12, Sonora, 6. Sutter had the ball and was on their way to a third score as
the game ended.
Placerville vs. Sutter Creek
Journeying to Placerville, the "Thundering Herd" administered a 25
to 6 shellacking to the Cougars by outplaying them in every department.
While we scored a touchdown each quarter, Placerville tallied only once by
a long run following a short drive in the third period. In the fourth quarter,
when Placerville darkened our threshold again, we battled them off and pro-
ceeded to score a touchdown. Both our passing and running attacks were
working smoothly, too smoothly to be closely contested by the Placerville
team. Lugonja, Perdue, McGee, and Nickley gave Sutter its points, and Case
was captain. This game virtually cinched the championship of this section
for us, leaving only Jackson to be conquered. g
Jackson vs. Sutter Creek 1 g
With the team all keyed up, and with Aldo Pinotti captain, we ran
through Jackson as easily as water through a sieve. We rolled up the total
of 44 points, while the Tigers crossed our fifty yard line o11ly once, and then
got only a few yards further. We scored twice in three of the quarters, but
only once in the third. It was more of a practice game than anything else,
for we received very little competition. Every player looked good, except
the lighter J acksoniansg and after the game it was acknowledged that we had
got enough revenge for last year's 6-0 loss to Jackson. Jackson fought hard,
but the final score, 44-0, did not seem to indicate the fact. ,
Patterson vs. Sutter Creek
Having met and defeated Jackson, and thereby won the championship
of the Mother Lode, we traveled to the valley town of Patterson to meet the
localteam in the semi-finals for the championship of Northern Califfornia.
Playing a hard luck game, we bowed to a scrappy outfit, which was continual-
ly on its toes, by a score of 12-6.
Patterson elected to receiveg and immediately after the kickoff by
Nickley, we were given our first chance to score from their 30 yard line.
From then on, we battled in vain, although we scored first on a spinner by
Lugonja from 20 yards out. Patterson retaliated, running back the follow-
ing kickoff to a touchdown.
ln the second half our passes failed, and although we outgained the
valley team a great deal, we seemed to get nowhere. Patterson took advantage
of of every breakg and after intercepting a pass and making another trip to
pay dirt, they were never headed. McGee was captain, and Lugonja stood
out, but Fortune was on the other side.
This game concluded our football season, which was a very successful
first one for Coach Poe. We won four games, lost three, and tied one, which
is a good record and which proclaims the season a success. May such
honors increase in all the following years under Coach Poe.
S. C. Society
This year the S. C. Society really got organized and went to work under
the leadership of Sam Lugonja, president, ,I ack Tam, vice-president, John
McGee, secretary-treasurerg and Coach Poe, adviser. Great enthusiasm and
fine cooperation were displayed throughout the year. The little room above
the library was given to the society as a meeting place, and it was fixed up
very attractively with pictures, blankets, and a bulletin board. The society
cooperated with the Service Club in giving a dance in Marchg and later in the
spring it also built a block SC of big dimensions in front of the gym. Hats off
to the Society. May such fine spirit be shown by them in the years to come.
After last yearis fine A team, everybody looked forward to anotherg
and, in a way, no one was disappointed, for we came through undefeated in
this section., but lost to Sonora in the playoffs for the championship of the
Mother Lode. The Lugonja-McGee combination showed the fans some basket-
ball that won't soon be forgotten. Martinez, Nickley, Case, Perez, J iminez,
Zarate and Hinds proved a great help on defensive as well os offensive work.
The prospects for next year's A team look very fine, and perhaps we,ll hear
about them in the championship playoff s.
After losing a number of games at the first of the season, the B team
came along fine and gave a good showing. Joe Lawrence was the high point
artist for them, Pillsbury was the all-around man, and Kriezenbeck was all
there on offense, and was captain as well.
The C team won only one league game, but at the end of the season
such marked improvement was shown that Mr. Cox felt rewarded for his
efforts. Sparked by Garcia, and led by Tallia, the mighty mites toppled
over the Jackson cubs in the last league game.

Scenes Around the Campus
This year's team is headed toward a successful season. The boys es-
pecially have been looking fine in practice, and the girls have been coming
along fast. The law of averages should give the teams a few victories, and
practice and good luck ought to add several more. As the actual teams have
not been selected, we shall mention all candidates. Among the boys there are:
Bob Jenkins, John Hunt, Sam Lugonja, Wayne Pillsbury, George Allen, Ken-
neth Hunt, Cooper Morabe, and John McGee. The members out for a berth
on the girls' team are: Betty McGee, ,loan Erickson, Helen Quinby, Audrey

On Taking Examinations
Examinations are feared by 9511 of the students. The reason the
other 5'Zp doesnit fear them is that they don't care what sort of grade they re-
ceive. Fear of examinations is actually the cause of many mistakes. Some
students who are calm in their everyday work lose their ability to think when
there is an examination with a time limit on it. Therefore one of the first
and most important things in the art of taking examinations is the ability to
keep calm, even when the teacher says, "I'll give you two more minutes to
finish in," and you are only half way through. A cool head in this crisis will
help your nerves a great deal and may hold off the gray hair for awhile
longer, even if it doesnit help your grade. Also don't write too hastily as you
may make some mistakes that will look very silly when they come back with
red marks around them. Will6H a hard question comes up and you don't
know the answer, resist the temptation to look on your neighbor's paperg that
is, unless heis an A studentg because his answer is just as near to being
wrong as yours.
When the examination is over, forget about it. D0n't sit up all night
and worry about your grade. It won't do it any good, and with the teacher
already worrying about your grade. and how you are going to pass, one per-
son is enough. When the papers come back, donit grab your paper, look at
the grade, and blush or faint--just keep a poker face-like the A student
who just got an F and is letting everybody think he got at least a B, or the F
student who got an A and is trying to keep anybody from discovering it.
Clocks are like people---they have personalities. They are all alike,
yet all different. Examine a clock carefully some time, and you will easily
see that it is a much more interesting object than its flat, stolid face would
First, there is the large grandfather's clock---made, perhaps, of mas-
sive oak and ornamented by fluted oaken strips and golden bands. His
strike is like the booming of the cannon seeming to sound a warning of the
approaching hour. This clock ,is like a soldier, old and weatherbeaten, who
stands grim and defensive at his post.
Then comes the mantel clock, rigid and stiff and sedate, reminding one
of a portly gentleman, whose haughty face surveys with disdain all who come
The alarm clock is next in line, a clock that is without doubt indis-
pensable to most people. He is like the hard-working, everyday person who
performs his duty promptly and well. What a life-saver on mornings when
one oversleeps! And yet---his strident call proves that he has a temper and
most be heeded.
The cuckoo-clock is the harum-scarum of the tribe. He gaily ticks his
way through the hours, pops open his door with heedless haste, chants his
ditty, and suhsides. He is like a little boy full of life and fun.
The dainty wrist watch deserves a place on this list, because she has a
personality, different from that of any other timepiece. At the slightest
provocation she will stop. She must be carried carefully, or she will sulk
and not give the correct time. Her very actions are like those of a fragile
young lady who must be pampered and petted to be endured.
The pocket watch is a gentleman like the mantel clock---but he is not so
rigid and stiff. He will endure treatment no other clock can stand without
protest. He is a friend, and can always be trusted.
The tiny little kitchen clock which ticks primly on the kitchen window-
sill is like a neat maid. She does her work well, and is a faithful servant.
Didnit you ever notice that clocks have feelings? On a bright, sunny
morning they all seem to tick merrily, while on a sodden morning they tick
wearily. When you are in a hurry, they become impudent and drag the
minutes ong yet when you need a lot of time, they fly around the hours.
Clocks are like people, if they are treated right, they will be your best
friends. ' A '
THERE'5 ALWAYS A WAY!
Some time around the turn of the century, the state government decided
to build a new state reform school for boys. A committee was named and
instructed to find a suitable location. Amador County, being small and in
need of the money incidental to having such an institution Within its bound-
aries, was anxious to impress the committee with its fitness. But the sum-
mers then, apparently, were as dry as they are now, and the creek which ran
through the land which was to be shown for approval was a mere bed of rocks
and sand. Nothing dismayed, however, the citizens held a conclave and
emerged with a scheme, the substance of which may be gathered from the
The sun was blazing in the sky, the ground was burning under foot,
and a wilted group of citizens was doing its best to convince an equally
wilted senatorial committee that Amador County in general, and the town of
lone in particular, was the logical site for the proposed home.
Offsetting the air of hospitality., with which the hosts favored their
guests, was an obvious feeling of apprehension. One or two more rises and
they'd be there. Had the boys up the canyon been able to carry out their end
of the scheme? Supposing they---oh well, too late nowg here was the last hill.
As one man, the party breathed a monstrous sigh. From the commit-
tee it was in the form of a gasp of amazementg and from the townspeople it
was a sigh of intense relief. It was mid-August, not a drop of rain had
fallen for a month, but here before them flowed a stream of delicious, glitter-
The boys above had not failed. The dam had been blown upg the
water was free to course down the creek past the wondering gaze of the com-
mittee, wbo showed their appreciation for this wonderful natural asset of
Amador County by recommending it as the location for the Preston School
Perhaps the preceding legend would not find corroboration in any
official county records, but by reason of Word of mouth tradition it is un-
doubtedly authentic, with allowances for omissions or additions acquired in
the course of repeated narration.
April l:ool's Day
April Foolis Day is a world-wide custom which is most irritating to
many people, although it provides much entertainment for all fun-lovers. It
is the day of days for practical jokers. A frivolous family can make the
lord and master of the home very uncomfortable on this day, and generally
does. Witness the case of Mr. Brown.
On the morning of April first, the unsuspecting Mr. Brown awoke to
the unceremonious clang of cowbells in his ears. "April Foollv' called the
family. When this gentleman started to dress, he found his clothes tied in
knots. Little Willie, youngest son, had just learned to tie a new knot, and
the clothes showed evidence of it. After laboriously untying these knots, Mr.
Brown came downstairs to breakfast in a rather pessimistic mood. Thinking
some coffee might shake off his gloom, he hurriedly put in the usual amount
of cream and sugar and gulped. A horrified expression appeared on his
face and everyone yelled, "April Fool!" The sugar-bowl had been filled
Hoping that no more such pranks would be displayed at breakfast, our
friend continued his meal, but he was doomed to be the victim of another
similar joke. At the first mouthful of egg, the same horrified expression
again appeared on his face and he quickly left the table. This time sugar
had been substituted for salt.
After a meager breakfast, Mr. Brown prepared to go to work. He
reached for his hat, but it had been tied to the hatrack---some more of Willie's
doings. As he stepped outside the front door, he breathed a sigh of relief g
but alas, his troubles were not over. Immediately following the sigh was a
deluge of water from a bucket cleverly arranged to descend upon the first one
to go out. Big Brother had been at work during Papa,s enjoyable breakfast.
While the family enjoyed the joke at Papa's expense, Papa rushed upstairs to
change his clothes and indulge in some good, old-fashioned ncussingw.
Mr. Brown reached his office a little later than usual and found a man
who wanted to see him lounging in the waiting room. He was shown in and
proved to be a salesman. For some reason his secretary lingered. As Mr.
Brown was puffing the cigar given him by the salesman, the secretary came
over to the desk to inquire about a letter. Just about that time there was a big
explosion, fragments of the cigar flew in every directiong but Mr. Brown
emerged unhurt except for his temper. The secretary giggled in a very un-
business-like manner and the salesman disappeared, calling behind him
At this moment little Willie Brown burst in, flushed and perspiring
"Daddy, Daddy," he cried, "our house is on fire! Come quick!" As Mr
Brown charged out the door, Willie paused to wink at the office force.
Since the Brown residence was only five blocks from the office, Mr.
Brown ran the distance. Willie overtook and passed him, and when he ar-
rived home was the first to call, "April Fool!"
Mr. Brown collapsed. ---Marjorie Harris
A COMPOSITION ON APRIL FOOL'S DAY COMPOSITIONS
Strange as it may seem, April Fool,s day never comes in March or
May but always on the first of April. That is all I know about this great
day, but I do have a joke on me which I shall write about.
I cannot write a composition just at any time. First I need a topic,
then I must be in the proper mood for writing. Last night---two days before
the deadline---I had an inspiration. I don,t know what it was now, but it was
a good idea. I had just begun to write at about seven-thirty when my little
brother started yelling, "Daddy, daddy, stop! Daddylv
I rushed outdoors, and found that while hauling fertilzer through the
garden in the Ford, daddy had managed to mire that worthy car frame deep,
and in trying to pull it out with the aid of a cable, a chain, a shiv, and my
car, had pulled out the garden fence.
Of course I offered my services at this crucial pointg and by the time
we had freed the car and driven it safely into the garage, and set the fence up
temporarily, it was around eleven o'clock. Now, my teachers have always
said, "Don't sacrifice your sleep for your homework." I didn't.
This evening I trudged wearily into the house determined to turn out
a masterpiece or "bust" trying, and found that my whole family had skipped
off to Sacramento. I contend that it is impossible to stir pudding and write
a composition at the same time. So I stirred the pudding. The folks re-
turned at 8:30, and by the time I sat down to my lessons, it was ten o'clock.
My eyes are so heavy I can,t see, so I have no composition at all. If
I rate an 'GF',, it's April Fool on mel -Elsie Jane lVIacClanahan

As a man thinketh, so is he. That old saying can be
changed to fit a situation which we believe to be true. As a man
speaketh, so is he judged by others. In that case, one must be
very careful to say exactly what he means. Hence, we have
become dictionary conscious. The book has become a friend.
It, with our building, has been made the theme of our year book.
Definitions from Webster and scenes of our well Worn paths
and hallways will, we hope, keep the memory of two cherished
possessions fresh in the minds of our readers.
She is not dead, but only lieth sleeping
In the sweet refuge of her Mastefs breastg
Anal far away from sorrow, toil, and weeping,
She is not dead but only taking rest.
These we have loved :
Long halls, sun filled on spring mornings g
Our grounds, shrub massed and tenclerl lovingly,
Contact with teachers, friendly or austere,
But always interesting,
Sports, the harcl lesson of defeat, the joy of triumph,
Operettas, make believe worlds that tried our skill,
Parties, knowledge, fumbled faery dust,
Comradeship, the comfortable sight of friendly faces.
Self-reliance, growing somehow from out
All the rest, giving it meaning, turning us from children
Into men and women.
Boa rd of Trustees
WEBSTER: A trustee: One to whom property is legally committed in trust.
OUR DEFINITION! One who gives his time and attention to the welfare of the
community hy taking thought for the young people thereof.
To the Board of Trustees we, the students of the Jackson High School,
give our sincere thanks and express our deepest appreciation for all they
have done for us during this past year.
Due to their efforts, athletic equipment was purchasedg new safety
devices were placed on the grounds and in the buildingg a new roof was put
on our school, and last, but far from least, our athletic Held was completed.
The men who have guided the affairs of the school again this year are:
Mr. Howard Smith, president, Mr. Victor Fitzsimmons, secretaryg Dr. P. B.
Aiken, Mr. George Hark, and Mr. Thomas G. Negrich.
MR. DONALD G. McKAY
Every one familiar with the community of Jackson realizes
that, more than anything else, the schools and the public need
a building to serve as a gymnasium and auditorium. Such a
building is now standard equipment in cities, large and small, in
Californiag and Jackson cannot be satisfied without one.
Our success in securing an auditorium and gymnasium de-
pends largely upon a forceful, yet tactful, presentation of our
needs to the public. Here is an opportunity for the students of the
schools of Jackson, as they reach every member of the community.
When the proper approach is made, the public is sure to respond.

WEBSTER: Council: A group of persons .elected or appointed to constitute an
advisory or legislative body.
We add to that: And to conduct the business affairs of the selecting group.
Again advised by Mr. Stoltz, the Council has worked hard to place the
organization which is represents, the Associated Students of the Jackson
Union High School, on a firm financial basis. Following a plan adopted last
year, proceeds of the Sutter-Jackson football game were divided. Sale of
membership cards and of tickets to games was the other source of income.
' Debate continued on the question of a revised constitution. Several
discussions in open student meetings cleared up points upon which different
groups held conflicting opinions. A constitution to be workable must have a
certain flexibility. Council members are to be congratulated upon their de-
termination to approach an ideal in drafting the fundamental law of their
ln the lighter vein, these executives planned more parties than usual
and took a serious interest in the very serious matter of setting up and main-
taining proper standards of student conduct at school functions. This was
largely a question of moulding student opinion. Once fixed in the proper
attitude, such public sentiment will take care of the situation. For proper
training in a democracy, students must have opportunity to manage their
oWI1 activities. Council members are grateful to the school authorities that
permit such freedom in the Jackson High School.

WEBSTER: Senior: One more advanced in dignity, rank, or ofiiceg a superior
Four years ago, we frolicked up the hill as innocent a group of fresh-
men as ever fell into the hands of waiting tormentors. After enduring a
dreadful "working over", we .began to feel at home in high school. We en-
joyed ourselves giving a jolly Return Party, winning a twenty-five dollar
prize for local historical data in a statewide contest, making several interest-
ing trips around the county. Our officers were: Willie Vukajlovich, presi-
dent, Lester Coleman, vice-president, Lily Nelson, secretary-treasurer,
Louise Nettle, social manager, Miss Warren, adviser.
Our sophomore year opened with a bang. The strain of being fresh-
men was over and we decided to "cut loose". During the year, out of the
dust we raised came a short play for the Student Body, a novel Valentine
dance, quite a few letter men, a host of Honor Roll Students, and three im-
portant parts in the operetta. Our class ofiicers were: Edwin Paredes, presi-
dentg John Aime, vice-president, Louise Nettle, Secretary and treasurerg Lily
Nelson, social manager, and Mr. Stoltz, adviser.
Our third year found us represented on the Council by three members,
in the operetta, by seven, on the uJacksonian9' staff, by three, in football, bas-
ketball, and baseball, by every able bodied boy, in "Baby Tigers" by most of
the girls, and on the Honor Roll, by a few real students. We proved ourselves
good financiers by using, for our '6Prom", money collected and saved through
the years. This dance, the only formal of the term, was beautiful in a spring
setting arranged in the auditorium. Our officers were: Marie Smith, presi-
dentg Ruth Jones, vice-presidentg Ruth Green, treasurerg Lily Nelson, secre-
taryg Alta Sauer, social manager, Miss Dooling, now Mrs. Snyder, adviser.
As seniors we were hard put to better the brilliant record we had made
as lower classmen, but our class has never failed yet. Officially there was no
"hazing", but several freshmen showed up slightly the worse for ,wear on
fy In more serious pursuits, we filled the bill, taking part in debates and
other programs in assembly, holding top place on the Honor Roll, and filling
all but three leading roles in the operetta. Athletics claimed the attention of
most of the boys, in fact, .every boy "went out" for some sportg and many of
them made Block J. We elected as oflicers: Fred Boitano, president, Olga
Ricci, vice-presidentg Raymond Toye, secretaryg Irene Tyack, treasurer,
Nellie Milardovich and Tom Rasica, social managersg John Aime, constitu-
tional representativeg Miss Sargent, class adviser.
The high light of the fall semester was picture day, when we all sat
for our photographs, "looking pleasant, please". Our big moment in the
spring was "Ditch Day,'. Of course, that is exclusive of the great day when,
with mingled feelings of joy and sorrow, we sit together, for the last time, as
a class, ready to receive the object of our four year pursit, a diploma of
graduation from high school. John Voss, '37

Thirty-three of us entered our third year eager to begin our activities
of ring buying, L'Prom" planning, and, of course, some studying. In Novem-
ber, when the rings came, every one was on deck to buy one. All season, we
followed the progress of our boys on turf, court, and diamond. Our girls
won Baby Tiger championship in both volley ball and basketball, excelled in
tennis, and many of them were consistent C. S. F. members. We supplied a
"Butte" editor, several staff writers, two council members, and musicians for
both orchestras. Many juniors appeared on the stage in programs, operetta,
fashion show, and finally in a real play, "Farewell Cruel World". Our
'4Prom" was the crowning social success of our th1'ee years in tl1e business of
giving parties. Our ofhcers were: Jacob Becker, president, Barbara Lee

And Just Next Year---
O Time and Change! With hearts as gay
As are the seniors, this spring day,
We try to think how it will be
VVhen we uphold their dignity.
How strange it'll seem with them all gone,
For us, mere juniors, to carry on.
Ah, schoolmates, only we and they
Remember, now, a former day.
Look where we may the school grounds oier.
Next September, they'l1 come no more.
We,ll tread the halls their feet have worn
We'll occupy their desks forlorn.
We'll turn the pages they have read
Their written words, a light will shed
On how they felt in their last year.
Oh! How we'll wish that they were here.
Barbara Lee Sargent, '38
YWEBSTER: Sophomore: A wise fool.
WE SAY: ln other words, one smarter than a freshman.
Forty-forty! For the first time, a sophomore class is as large as a
freshman class in our high school.
ul-lop, Skip, and Jumpvi Our 'clrlopi' carried us all far over the seas
to Chinese shores where under the soft glow shed by scores of oriental lan-
terns, we "tripped the light fantastic" in the gayest dance of the year. Our
brilliance sparkles in the C. S. F., where we outnumber all the other classes.
Quality with quantity is our motto. But, all our time has not been spent in
mental labor, we have put forth a reasonable effort in sports, dramatics, and
other extra curricular activities. Wre had members in all intersehool athletic
and oratorieal contests, in the operetta, in the C. S. F. and class plays here at
home. Our o cers were: Trinidad Duran, presidentg Esther Peraza, vice-
presidentg Mary Ferdani, secretary-treasurer, Edith Ludekins, social man-
agerg Margaret Taylor, constitutional representativeg Miss Silva, adviser.

The Rime of the Sophomores
It was the merry sophomores
That sailed this year with glee.
They sometimes took the little freshmen
To hear them company.
Carefree their ways through thick and thin
Happy from day to day!
They did upitch inn to their schoolwork
To keep the teachers gay.
Such is the record of the class
Most famous in the school
But still these '6Sophs" do ne'er forget
How to keep the Golden Rule.
Esther Peraza, '39
WEBSTER: F reshman.: One in the rudiments of knowledge.
Rudiments indeed! We think we know too much for our own good.
In September, forty-four brave little boys and girls meekly entered
high school, and although our number has diminished to forty, We are still
brave. We have to be, to meet the opposition we find in some quarters.
After a very successful Freshman Return party, We began planning for
Christmas. In the course of preparation we found that we had a uhaywiren
orchestra, some good singers, and several pianists, so We gave an outstanding
entertainment. We set an all time high for freshman achievement by sup-
plying an operetta lead and many chorus members. ln scholarship and
sports, we have distinguished ourselves, producing athletes, cooks, models,
orators, writers, and hook Worms. Our oflicers were: Olney Bryant, presi-
dentg Urban Shea, vice-president: Frances Digitale, secretaryg Staples
Eugles, treasurerg Betty Vela, constitutional representativeg Miss Norton,
In spite of all our accomplishments, our minds XNdIlClC1', once in a while,
back to the joys of our childhood. One of those pleasures finds expression in
our class poem, quoted below.
Frances Digitale, '40
It Comforts Us
Like the love of the mother, it shines through our years,
It has soothed all our hurts and has dried away tears,
It has paid us for toilingg in sorrow or joy,
It has always shown kindness to each girl and boy,
And I,m sorry for people, whoever they are,
Who live in a house where there's no cookie jar.
Wilda J une Getchell, '40
Joe's Elegy on Lost Manuscripts
The school bell tolls the knell of parting day,
The children run so swiflty o'er the lea,
The teachers homeward plod their weary way,
And leave the world to darkness and to me.
Now fades the bright and glimmering sun from sight,
And all the air a solemn stillness holdsg
Save where the broom doth wheel its dusty Hightg
And trash-cans, rattling, fill the air with colds.
And there beneath the dust becovered desks,
The mop and broom, I ply in solemn gloom.
Beside the shelves and shelves of pondirous texts
I polish up the gadgets of the room.
Upon those glowing coals, outside the door,
Where lies the motley of the rubbish heap,
From each wastebasket I begin to pour,
Masterpieces, doomed for e'er to sleep.
The shrill summons by morning's noises wrought,
The swallows twitt'ring from the tiles so red,
The student's wail or teacheras second thought
No more shall rouse them from their lowly bed.

Under the guidance of the adviser, Miss Sargent, the staff has had a
pleasant "editorial" season. The editor, Marie Smith, appointed Ruth Green,
her assistant, Margaret Taylor, literary, Robert Shea, photography, John
Voss, humor, and Edwin Smith, athletic editor. .lack Cuneo has had the
heavy task of business manager.
Editorial D ,
We have schools and then we must be forced to attend them. This, in
our judgment, is a paradox. An education is offered us, and yet, we reject
it. This attitude has become so pronounced that intelligent men are puzzled
as to the outcome. No one can present any proof of mental deficiency in our
generation, but many are inclined to believe that we have simply lost our
studious attitude toward the three 'GR's". Personally, I think that, under
restraining influence, we mature at a later ageg that we do not acknowledge
ourselves as adults until we have studied and lived for perhaps five years
longer than the average high school age.
One reason for this change is that most of the responsibility of school
is shouldered by our elders, especially teachers. We are told what to dog if
the task is not accomplished we are scolded and---no more. A student should
not be allowed to go on in his work until his first job is completed. He should
then be shown how to accept the responsibility for his work,'no matter what it
is or how far it goes. Making students responsible for the daily tasks causes
them to rely upon themselves, gives them confidence and faith in their own
That is the reason that many of us are firm believers in student gov-
ernment. When we graduate from high school, we want to be able to go to
work and become good citizens. But on the other hand, if we are herded
through these four years---always being told what to do, when to do it, and
where, what is going to become of us, who do not know how to start our lives?
Fortunately, a few are able to go on to a university and learn how to conduct
themselves as men and women. You see we, in the high schools, are not ex-
actly children and yet not adults. So what could be more fitting than for
us to learn to govern ourselves? Marie Smith, '37
"If at Iirst you don't succeed, try, try again." This age old proverb
sums up the meaning of, and the ways of acquiring wisdom. "0h! that's too
much troublef' will be your next wordsg and "Who wants to do that anywayf'
will follow immediately. Stop! Listen! And try, at least, to absorb the
full value of these 11ine small words.
Every one dreams of success. Success is the result of knowledge.
Knowledge is the offspring of effort. Effort succeeds ambition. Lastly,
ambition is the result of knowldge about someone's success. So, like one of
last year's popular songs, wisdom goes ,round and 'round and out comes
success. Ruth Green, '37

WEBSTER: Music: The science or art of pleasing, expressive, or intelligible
combination of tones.
WE SAY: A school activity which has taught us that sweet melody is of hor-
rible noises born.
Under the direction of Mr. van Thiel, this department boasts two large
choruses and excellent orchestras, galore, this year. For the first time,
student musicians played for the operetta. A combined group from Jackson
and Sutter Creek, organized to play for dances, has been much in demand
at both school and public functions. Last but not least, the '4Freshman Hay-
wiresl' put on programs and took part in the operetta.
Mention of the operetla brings us to the dramatic event of the year.
A jolly vehicle, "And It Rainedw, gave opportunity to thirty-two chorus mem-
bers and principals to display their histrionic gifts. Financially and artis-
tically, the annual show was its usual splendid success. Every member of
the Student Body is grateful to Mrs. Stanley Fulkerson who, as accompanist,
spent many afternoons and evenings going over and over the music with the
singers. The work of Mr. Fulkerson in the orchestra is also deeply appreci-
ated. The following students had the pain and pleasure of staging this

Life to me is a sweet song,
That one can sing from dusk 'til dawn.
To laugh and play and hope the right
Will make the future always bright.
And then again it's strange as fiction,
Being like a play.
Where one pretends with glamorous diction,
That life is ever gay.
I know not what is life's queer plang
Nor what may happen in years that span,
That snuff the candle's last sweet breath,
And bring the peace of lasting death.

Scholarship Federation, for it joined two years ago and took its seat as
Our first meeting, this year, was held on October twenty-second. The
old members present were: Marie Smith, Ruth Green, Lola Hamrick, and
Donna Fontenrose. The new members, Olga Ricci, Marguerite McGhan,
Audrey Digitale, Katherine Obrad, Lorraine Love, Barbara Lee Sargent,
Mary Lucot, Joyce Sauer, Louise Nettle, Ruth Jones, and John Aime, were
initiated before the Student Body, on December second. Officers for the
chapter were elected as follows: Marie Smith, president, Ruth Green, vice-
president, Olga Ricci, secretary-treasurer, and Ruth Jones, social manager.
It seems that the girls in this school are brighter than the boys, for
during the first semester there were fourteen girls to one boy. Later, more
of the stronger sex came ing but the girls were still in the majority.
On December fifth, most of the members attended a district convention
at Roseville and enjoyed themselves immensely.
The following new members were initiated at the beginning of the
second semester: Lupe Tovar, Margaret Taylor, Alvin Puppo, Goldina Law-
son, Barbara Lawrence, Olney Bryant, Frances Digitale, Stanley V asilovich,
Staples Engles, and Alfred Moscatelli.
Two successful plays were given for the P.-T. A. on March thirty-iirst,
in which most of the members participated in order to raise money for the
Early in the year, president Marie Smith, presented a beautiful mallet
made by Mr. Howard Smith as a symbol of the order we wish to maintain in
Our motto is that all the members must do everything in t.heir power
to bring to the Student Body, by example and general discussion, a realiza-
tion of the true meaning not only of scholarship, but of the qualities that
would make of every student in the school, a better person. Miss Silva has
been the capable adviser.

And look upon my self and curse my fate.
Wishing mathematics never had evolved,
Typing, stenography, English, and "gym",
Physics and bookkeeping---my brain's dissolved.
In praise of these I cannot raise a hymn.
Yet, in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Knowledge, I think on Theeg. and then my heart-
From depths of childish wonderment arising,
Sees all this work, of some great whole, a part.
A life plan, faintly shaping, such joy brings,-
That, then, I scorn to change my state with kings.

Our coach, realizing that this was an off year for championships, set
about developing material for future seasons. With a squad of willing
"peppy" freshmen, he began laying foundations for real stulf in football.
ln the upper classes, he concentrated on bringing out unknown material. This
involved interviewing parents who were not overly enthusiastic about sports
and building up, among the boys, sound knowledge of healthful athletic ac-
tivities. In reaching these objectives, Mr. Stoltz has had a very successful
Although the teams of Jackson did not receive high awards or other
outside honors, they did hold a high place in the affection of the school.
The athletic season started with about thirty enthusiastic football players, all
ready to go. The team members started off playing with all their fight, but
had a spell of bad luck when several players were hurt at the beginning of
the season. But, even those k,ept fighting to the last minute. The games
were played in fair weather with the exception of San Andreas where it
rained. Here are the scores for the season:

Basketball season is really like the famous Hthree in one". We are
almost dizzy every year following the course of MAN, "B", and "C" cagers.
After breaking even in their practice games, the "A's" sang their swan song
in their first C. I. F. contest. After defeating lone, they were roundly cleaned
up by Sutter Creek and Placerville. The one bright spot on the horizon is
that several under classmen, sophomores in fact, got valuable experience
for later years.
Our "B's", a la St. Mary's, developed a reputation of being second
halfers. Had they got going in the beginning of the games and at the begin-
ning of the season as they did at the end, we would have had a different story
to tell. As far as scores go, our "B's" were a uwashoutn. But in those Sutter
Creek fights, they showed as a "scrappy"outfit, who will deliver the goods
Our midgets, being green, may be forgiven for their misdemeanors.
Although they brought home no championships, they acquired a reputation of
being able to "take it". Time is all these scrubs need to become a first class
team. Right now, they have quantity rather than quality, but the latter can
be developed with careful coaching.
A post season "thrill', was offered by the interclass games. In a series

During their baseball season, our boys proved that they could Mtake it"
from the weather and from their opponents. One game after another had to
be postponed at the insistence of Jupiter Pluvius. Probably their worst
experience was the futile trip to Placerville on April Foolis Day. Arriving
in old Hangtown in a pouring rain, all they could do was to turn around and
come home again. The boys all enjoyed their association with John Vuko-
vich who gave his time and knowledge to improve them in their game. These
scores tell a sad story of a baseball nine that enjoyed more fun than victory.

Block "J" is a symbol. Let us see what Webster says a symbol is. A
visible sign of an idea or quality is his definition. ln our school, the Block
"J" has been chosen as the name of a society whose members are the "cream
of the crop', in athletics. The idea behind the organization is set forth in a
constitution, revised this year.
President Edwin Paredes reported that, for the first time, training
rules have been adopted. A program has been started to work out a system
of sound finance, to arouse interest in sports, to raise athletic standard in
the school, and to promote good limes among a group of boys who have
many common interests.
The requirements for membership are excellence in three sports, foot-
ball, class A basketball, and baseball. These students are qualified for mem-
bership: John Aimeg Willie Vukajlovichg Edwin Paredes, president, Ray-
mond Toyeg Melvin Yen, treasurer: Charles Dermondg Jacob Becker, secre-
taryg Carl Beck, Trinidad Duran, Jack Healey, Angelo Piccardog Paul Eck-
manng Dan Churichg Jack Cuneog Robert Towsleyg and Willie Vasilovich.
A BLOCK "J"ER'S LAMENT
I know that I shall never be,
A student better than a C.
Just one who out runs all the restg
Or is considered to be the best,
In blocking on that mighty line,
Or catching flys among the nineg
In making shots that hit the cage,
Although in school Fm never sage.
Teams are made by fools like me,
The Lord knows how I make that C.

IN OUR SCHOOL: Girls who are interested enough in sports to stay after school
for interclass contests.
Our first Baby Tiger meeting was held on September fourteenth, and
ollicers for the year were elected as follows: Louise Nettle, president, Kate
Gonzales, vice-president, Loretta Cioni, secretary, Emily Tyack, treasurerg
and Miss Norton, adviser. The organization boasts of fifty members who
take active part in all sports.
The first Hi J inks partywas held on the fifteenth of October. Games
were played during the evening, and prizes were given for the best costumes
and the best dancers. - Everyone who came had a splendid time.
Our sports for this year began with volley ball. lnterclass games were
held after school. For the second year, the mighty juniors Won a victory
over all comers. The volley managers are: juniors, Marguerite McGhang
sophomores, Lorraine Apariciog freshmen, Barbara Lawrence.
We all chased basketballs for our second sport, and considered our-
selves lucky to have the California Auditorium for our practices on Mondays
and Fridays. After several weeks of practicing, we held our interclass games,
with the' juniors "popping up" winners again. Basketball managers Were:
juniors, Lola Hamrickg sophomores, Esther Perazag freshmen, Isabel Boitano.
Hidden behind that impenetrable curtain of time drawn by the ages,
lies the story of the origin of the bow.
The question of which came first to man, fire or the bow, will probably
never be answered, but stone arrow heads have been found that indicate that
the history of the bow goes back for at least twenty-five thousand years.
The first account in print of the bow is found in the first book of the
Bible, Genesis, in which it is stated that Ishmael, the son of Abraham, dwelt
in the wilderness and became an archer. In the same chapter the bow shot
is described as a measure of distance.
The account of almost every battle in history up to the middle of the
seventeenth century, gives some mention of the use of a bow, either by foot
or mounted archers. Many of the greatest battles of history were decided
by this weapon.
The present revival of the interest in archery in this country is clue,
in no small way, to the finding of the primitive Indian, Ishii, the last living
member of the Yana Tribe, in the mountains of California in 1911. Dr.
Saxton Pope became greatly interested in Ishii and his craft, and began a
research into archery, and made many experiments with ancient and modern
weapons. Soon the exploits of Pope in hunting deer, mountain lions, and
grizzly bear with the bow, in the United States and Alaska, and finally in
hunting the king of beasts, the African lion, on the dark continent, came
from the press to amaze the lovers of outdoor sports, and then suddenly the
interest in archery swept the country, and men, women, and children took up
the long-bow for pastime.
Not to be behind the times, the girls of our high school have taken up
archery this spring. If their enthusiasm can be trusted, they will soon rival

The new sport, however, has not crowded out the old standby--tennis.

June 4, 1937. GRAD'S OF '37
WEBSTER: Kniclc-Knack: A gew-gawg a sound made up of alternate knicks
, and knacks.
There was a young boy named Poletti,
Who had eaten too much spaghetti.
He started to croon
And fell in a swoon.
So now, he is eating confetti.
There once was a guy named Willie,
Who could act as silly as Daffydowndilly.
But in a pinch,
It was a cinch
To depend on that guy named Willie.
There is a young lady named Lawson,
Who while in school is always hossin'.
She has very long hair
But it's not like a bear.
Because she is as sweet as a blossom.
There is a musician called Shea,
Who's bent on having his way. I
If crossed, the least,
This little beast
Will pout the live-long day.
---B. L. S.
Lucot is a merry cut-up,
She's very---yes, naughtily abrupt.
But if you should say
"Mary, don't act that way!"
She'd politely shout-"Shut up!"
A coach here at school we call "Pop",
He was showing some boys how to stop.
They ran very fast
And finally at last,
They came down with a horrible flop.
We know a young lady named Sauer,
Vlfho was always in need of a lawyer.
She's always in dutch
With teachers and such,
But it doesn't seem to annoy her.
Our Tigers had a season rare,
For like the famous old gray mare,
fAs all their fans can plainly see,
They ainit so good as they used to be.
There is a fellow named Sutton,
Who had a craving for mutton.
But he ate too much,
And stuffed himself such,
That he popped off his only vest button.
A very prominent Smith we boast,
Whose fame is known from coast to coast.
The way she gets A's
Leaves us all in a daze, -
Could it be that she studies the most?
There is a young laddie named
At speeding a car hels a tyke.
Now, it happened one day
That pa had his say.
Now, Mikie is driving a hike.
