Molsls Roos I t is with everlasting gratitude that we pay tribute to a man much worthier of Commendation than mere words can express. As a member of the Board of Trustees of Sutter Creek Union High School for fourteen gears, Mr. Roos took an active part in our education and in the improvement of our school. The provision of better heating and lighting systems, the construc- tion of our tennis courts, the addition of new equipment to our shops, our cafeteria---these are among the projects he helped to advance. Un many occasions he has been present at com- mencement to award diplomas. or his interest, his kindness, his principles, his deeds, he will long be remembered at Sutter High. A L 9 In Memoriam 1 , ROSEMARIE .TRUDGEN 1 ' "I,ll lend you for a little while a child of minef, He said, "F or you to love the while she lives and mourn for when she,s dead. It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or -three, But will you, till I call her back, take .care of her for me? She,ll bring her charms to gladden you, and shall her stay be brief You'll have her lovely memories as solace for your grief. "Ioan not promise she will stay since all from earth return, But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn. I 've looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes I have selected you. Now will you give her all your love, nor think the labor vain, Nor hate me when I come tot call to take her back again?" I fancied that I heard them say: "Dear Lord, Thy will be done! For all joy Thy child shall bring, the rish of grief we'll run. We,ll shelter her with tenderness, we'll lov? her while we may, And for the happiness we've known, forever 'grateful stay 5 But shall the angels call for her much sooner than we've planned, W'e'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand. - - EDGAR A. GUEST EDITORlAL The high school student of today finds himself confronted with world problems such as have never been seen before. As he leaves high school, he is not only entering upon a career or professiong he is taking responsibility upon himself that may affect the whole future of the world. Not only is he becoming a junior citizen of our countryg he is becoming a junior citizen of the world. That is why today, as never before, it is so vitally important that the student equip himself to meet the challenge. This is an oft quoted phraseg but the challenge in consideration has never before had such world wide potentialities. Instead of learning a single localized trade, he will be com- pelled to refer constantly to the technicalities of his trade and therefore to em- brace technical changes as they- occur all over the world. The day has come when we must stop speaking in terms of parts, and start speaking in terms of the whole. As we leave high school, we are or should be conscious of our responsibilities. We will not sidestep the issue so that the next generation will have to tangle in the same mess. We are proud of being allowed to show that we can handle this. And, God willing, we will. 4 a PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE With the War nearing success- ful conclusion in Europe and turn- ing definitely in our! favor in the Pacific, the United Nations are turn- ing their attention to the perfecting of an international organization that all peace-loving nations fervently hope will outlaw war for all time. The preliminary plans for this or- ganization were tentatively agreed upon in the Dumbarton Oaks Con- ference. The Conference of the Na- tions, to be held in San Francisco, should see these plans perfected and y submitted to the nations for final l approval. The ultimate success of an undertaking of this kind will, of course depend upon the willingness to cooperate, the intelligence, and the development of the ideals of world citizenship, among the citizens of all the nations partici- pating. No doubt our nation will do everything in its power to promote this noble purpose. However, we should be realistic enough to profit from past experiences. Never again should our nation entrust its liberty, freedom, and security to peace pacts or peace organizations alone. We must be prepared to meet with force the aggression of any future predatory nation. Military might depends as much on thetrained civilian as on the soldier. There is little doubt but that the training of the civilian to meet responsibilities in time of national' emergency will fall largely upon the public schools of the nation. ' Educational requirements may eventually be modified with this purpose in view. In addition to regular graduation requirements, high school boys and girls may have to qualify themselves in some field whereby they can .render national service when needed. Each high school boy or girl upon graduation should have developed some specific skills such as the ability to operate a lathe, to weld, to make and read blue prints, to operate a typewriter, to devel- op a sound knowledge in dietetics, home nursing, first aid, to mention a few. These objectives would not be in conflict with, but would rather supplement and strengthen the education of the individual. Many of you attending Sutter Creek High are already trained to render service in some of these fields, and it should be the aim of all our students to acquire such training before your high school days are completed. In this way, you can best do your part to insure that in future emergencies our nation will never again have too little, too late. - A L. O.

The class oflicers elected are as follows: Allen Ferretti, presi- dentg Lawrence Ferdani, vice-presidentg Betty Lu Cassou, secretary, treasur- erg and Suzanne Erickson and John Golsie, cabinet members. Our class ad- viser was Miss Friek, who helped make our Junior Prom a success with her advice and modern ideas. - Our class had many outstanding athletes in football, basketball, baseball and tennis: Frank Lewers, Allen Ferretti, Lawrence Ferdani, John Golsie, John Allen, Erwin Clandon, Ross Oliveto, Bud Palmer, Lewis Terkla, Ches- ley Felmley, Garnett Fridley, Ed Swift, Oren Broyles, Lawrence Galli, Bob- bie Stewart, Beverly Carne, Betty Lu Cassou, Irene Bovinich, Mae Lasich, and Lois Vaira. - The following members of the Junior Class helped make the Christmas play a success, Betty Lu Cassou, Beverly Carne, Mary Eleanor Davis, Edward Swift, and Suzanne Erickson. W e are looking forward to our Senior year, but are a little sad at the thought that it will be our last year at Sutter High. . 1 CLASS or 1947 The Sophomore Class started its second year at Sutter High very success- fully under the leadership of Joe Pinotti, presidentg J oe Vaira, vice-presi- dentg Nancy Helen NVise, secretary and treasurerg Doris Matsoniand Bob Oliver, our representatives in the cabinetg and our very capable sponsor, Miss Lagomarsino. Our first activity was the initiation and dance for the Freshmen. Several of our class members distinguished themselves as athletes. Those who were outstanding on the gridiron were: Joe Vaira, LaVerne Allen, Bob Oliver, Bob Fry, and J oe Pinotti. On the championship "B" team, We were represent- ed by Joe Vaira, Bob Oliver, and Bob Fry, and in HN' basketball we had J oe Pinotti. In baseball we had Joe Vaira, Bob Oliver and Bob Fry. On the girls, side, those who went out for tennis were Shirley Berry and Doris Matson. We were represented in the Christmas play by LaVerne Allen and Joe Pinotti. The Sophomore class has finished its second year very successfully and we hope we can do as well in our next two years. 13 CLASS OF 1948 Un the llth day of September, 194-4, thirty-two freshmen entered Sutter Creek High School. Two weeks later, at the initiation, we received our pun- ishment from the dreaded sophomores. The dance which followed helped to drive away our previous embarrassment. Two weeks after the initiation we showed our appreciation by a return dance. The officers we elected for our class were: Leland Clandon, presidentg Ella Moreno, vice presidentg Patricia F erretti, secretary and treasurerg and Mr. Markley, adviser. We were represented in the cabinet by Carolyn Ralph and Seneca Burr. The following freshman boys participated in athletics: Harry Broyles, Seneca Burr, Milton Chase, Everett Crain, George Findley, Leland Clandon, Ralph Ladd, Ronald O'Neil, Roger Peters, Archie Shepherd, and Franklin Wilds. -e' We are proud of the parts Patricia Ferretti and Bill Giles played in the Christmas play. We have high hopes for the success of our class in the future. 14 w 1 CABINET The cabinet is the law-making body of the school. Its purpose is to set rules and decide issues which may come before it during the course of a school year. This year our cabinet set prices on C. I. F. football and basket- ball games, ordered posters, ordered national assemblies and arranged for their financing. set qualifications for and awarded athletic awards, instituted a service flag, and did many other 'important things.

We are very pleased to have a copy of the Nugget and hope that this arrangement in which the three schools cooperate will be continued for many years. The Skip staff for 1945, under the direction Daniel, Miss lVlcl7ars land, and Mr. Van Thiel, has attempted to new features and ar- rangements in spite of the acute shortage of materials. For planning and editing this thirty-first of The Skip, credit the following members of the staff : Editor, Bill McGee, Assistant Editor, Eleanor Wheeler, Senior Editor, Betty Nikolichg Art Editor, Nancy Helen Wise, Assistant Art Editor, Dixie Sonesg Junior Editor, Suzanne Erickson, Sopho- more Editor, J oe -Pinottig Freshman Editor, Leland Glandong Sports Editor, Franklin,Boitanog Featlire Editors, Beverly Carne and Betty Lu Cassoug Photography, Chester Vaira. 17 ' SERVICE CLUB' The Service Club has had a successfulyear under the able guidance' of Miss F rick as adviser. The officers elected were as follows: president, Frances Ferdanig vice- president, Dixie Sonesg and secretary-treasurer, Dianne Deaver. The Council officers were: senior class, Violet Jovisichg junior class, Mary Eleanor Davisg sophomore class, Sabina Malatestag and freshman class, Carolyn Ralph. The Service Club served cokes and hot-dogs at all of the home games dur- ing football season. They also served refreshments during the dances held in the main building after three basketball games. The Service Club girls had an enjoyable Christmas party at which time they exchanged gifts. One of the big events of the year was a Barn Dance held April 6th. This was sponsored by the F. F. A. Society and Service Club. It was an event enjoyed by all. The Service Club has again been a help in making the high school year more pleasant and enjoyable. 18 BRCADCAST The goal of the Broadcast staff this past year has been to bring to the students a largerland more interesting Broadcast than ever before. Many good feature articles have been written, along with the different class activities. Also the gossip column, which the students enjoy, has been written every time. - ' The editors of the Broadcast have been: news editor, Betty Nikolichg feature editor, Bill McGeeg and sports editors, Beverly Carne and Franklin Boitano. . The artistic covers which have come forth each time have been produced through the efforts of Dixie Sones and Beverly Deaver. The Broadcast has been under the able direction of Miss Daniel. lU p s. c. SOCIETY The S. C. Society started on its school year by electing the following of- ficers: Shank Boitano, president, Allen Ferretti, vice president, Bill McGee, secretary and treasurer. New members were initiated for the first time in many years as theboys were paced over an obstacle course of threatening nature. The Society formulated a by-law to the constitution this year which set definite requirements for membership to the society and eliminated all un- certainty previously experienced. Under the direction of 'Coach Wrinkle, the boys completed a very successful season. Members as of April are: Franklin Wilds, Sonny Ferdani, John Golsie, Shank Boitano, John Inzunza, Harry Broyles, Lewis Terkla, Allen Ferretti, Don Matson, John Allen, LaVerne Allen, Joe Vaira, Erwin Clandon, Lee Anderson, Bud Palmer, Ross Oliveto, Bill McGee, Chesley Felmley, Leland Glandon, Lawrence Galli, Bob Fry, Bob Stewart, Oren Broyles, and Joe Pinotti. A 20 X U 'T F. F. A. This year, as in the past, the Future Farmers of America organization has carried on in full swing. At the first of the year, the group electedrthe follow- ing officers: president, Bill Garcia, vice president, Jack Vance, secretary, Delbert Glavichg treasurer, Bob Stewart, reporter, Dominic Calandri. Soon after, they held their annual initiation ceremony with the usual hot dogs and soda pop. The following were initiated: Roger Peters, Ralph Ladd, Archie Shepherd, Ed Stewart, Everett Crain, and Milton Chase. As far as projects go, chicken raising seemed to be paramount. Garcia had the outstanding project of the year with over 200 of the animals at one time. Others worked i11 the Ag. shop on gates, chicken feeders, hay feeders, CtC. - Jack Crain, a graduate of this school and a member of the F. F. A., was present at school to receive the State Farmerls Degree, an honor accorded a very few boys in Calif ornia. With aims like that above in mind, the boys strive to live up to the stand- ards set in the past . This organization is a Worthwhile institution and credit is due to Walter Markley for his fine leadership and enthusiasm over the boys' work. . 21 A Tribute to the Largest Organization In the yWor1d This is a tribute to the Armed Forces of the United States. This page is set aside to honor all the men and Women who have attended our high school and are now serving in every field of sacrifice and service for our country. We are represented in nearly every service---the Army, the Navy, the Marine Corps, the Merchant Marine, the Wacs, Waves, and Spars, the Army Nurse Corps, and the Cadet Nurse Corps. We remember these people as our schoolmates, sitting next to us in class, playing in the band, playing football or basketball, or just having good times together. They have left us now temporarily so that we and those to come can continue to have good times together. We are indebted to and proud of those represented by the blue stars in our service flag, and we are proud and humble inthe face of our gold stars. 2 4 ' get ,', 2.13 X ...,' 'A- - , W ,: H 5 wau...x..r .. - mm.

' CHRISTMAS PLAY The Christmas Play this year was a bigger success than ever before. lt' was a three-act comedy named 6'That Crazy Smith F amilyn, and that title certainly fitted the play. , - Remember how Pa Smith, who was ably played by I oe Pinotti, was con- stantly in a turmoil over his four children who were Betty and Buddy, the two imps of the family, played by Mary Eleanor Davis and Bill Gilesg Tony, the football hero, played by Franklin Boitanog and Sally, the artist of the family, played by Patricia Ferretti. Naturally throughout the whole play Ma Smith came to the rescue of the children. This part was played by Suzanne Erickson. Supporting players to this hectic family were Mary Lou Cassella, LaVerne Allen, Betty Lu Cassou, Beverly Carne, Ed Swift, and Bill McGee. The play was under the direction of Miss Daniel. s SCHOCDL SPIRIT Due to people's moving away to work in war industry, and many of the boys going into the armed forces, our student 'body has been smaller during the 1944-45 school year than it has been for many years. ln spite of this fact the school spirit has continued to reign as strong and forceful as ever. At every athletic contest, social function, and educational activity the students have turned out in splendid representation of Sutter Creek High. They have cheered our teams on to victory and have continued to cheer in the face of defeat. Everyone has worked together to make our school a pleasant place in which to obtain an education. , The combined school spirit of students and teachers alike will remain in the memories of the alumni as one of their most pleasant experiences in life. It has been proved here that people working together can make a peaceful democratic world. 27 BAND The band, consisting of thirty members under the direction of Mr. Van Thiel, has had a very successful year. At times some of the players, such as Joe Pinotti and Bill McGee, felt a little jivyg but during more serious times the band played for football games, basketball games, the Christmas Play, and Public Education Week. Q ' Such selections as "S.l.B.A.H, '4Ancho1's Aweighn, "My Buddy", 6'Will You Remember?',, and many others, were played and enjoyed by all. 28 A GLEE CLUB Considering the small number of singers out this year, the Clee Club had a very successful season. The girls spent their time singing three-part songs of both modern and classic caliber. Some of them were 'cRussian Lullaby", "Whispering", and uW'hen I Crow Too Old to Dream". The singers Were: Dianne and Beverly Deaver, Elaine Wheeler, Florence Neff, and Verna Garibaldi, first sopranosg Rhilo McPherson, Ella Moreno and Verneda Snooks, second sopranosg Vada Altimus and Ramona Deaver, altos. Charlotte Modi ell was the accompanist. Under the capable direction of Mr. Van Thiel, this group sang for such functions as the Christmas Play, Public School Week, and Commencement Exercises. 29 W FOOTBALL A fair turn out of a small, but determined football squad went into action against much larger and heavier teams this year. They went on fighting despite the inexperience of the players and showed their courage on the grid- iron by facing much faster and more rugged competition. With only two veterans from last yearis squad, the Thundering Herd displayed some fine talent as the season went on into its closing phases. Although they weren't branded as champions, the 1944 football squad had the intestinal fortitude for which former Thundering Herd elevens have been noted. With this spirit, the boys looked outstanding even in defeat. Il 2 SACRAMENTO 12 - SUTTER CREEK 0 The team traveled to Sacramento to scrinnnage the capital city boys for their first pigskin battle of 19-H. Everyone got a chance to play and show his ability as a football player. The experience helped the team considerably. SONORA 21 - SUTTER CREEK 0 For their first league tussle the team met a classy Sonora eleven, later the Mother Lode Champions, who had a fairly large squad. The Herd went down in defeat to a superior team, but looked good as they had an unbroken spirit to fight on under greater odds. The boys showed well with certain splashes of power, but not enough to score. BRET HARTE 0 - SUTTER CREEK 13 The team went into action and put on the pres- sure in the second quarter of this contest when Shank Boitano bolted thru tackle to score and later flipped a pass to Joe Vaira who crossed the goal line for the second touchdown. John Golsie split the uprights to add the extra point as the Herd was triumphant in their first game. CALAVERAS 14 - SUTTER CREEK 12 ln this game a powerful eleven with a strong running attack netted two touchdowns and the extra points to nose out the Herd, whose pass- es proved to be vulnerable as the boys fought hard to win. Vaira went across to score on a pass early in the game and Inzunza hit pay dirt from a few yards out. The difference- two conversions. CALAVERAS 20 - SUTTER CREEK 0 Playing their second league game under the lights at San Andreas, the Herd did their best which wasn't enough to hold the Redskins with their fast running attack. The Herd did some nice yardage making on end runs along with several passes that connected. In this game, Joe Pinotti was ushered out of the game as the result of a cut face. BRET HARTE 6 - SUTTER CREEK 0 A third quarter pass intercepted by Bret Harte gave them a touchdown and the ball game in the third league game that the Herd lost. Mak- ing yardage on some nice off-tackle plays and line bucks, the Herd couldn't put enough to- gether to get a score, but came within striking distance as the final gun halted the drive. JACKSON 6 - SUTTER CREEK 6 The annual Big Game-a sea of mud, and a constant downpour of rain handicapped-the two rivals of this yearly classic as they fought on the slippery gridiron. The Herd thundered down the field with the opening kick-off and after five minutes of play, scored the first touchdown of the game when .lohn Inzunza flipped a pass to Shank Boitano who crossed the goal line to score, but failing to convert. As the .first period drew to a close, Jackson capitalized on a blocked kick to score their touchdown and also failed to convert. Both teams fought hard to break the deadlock in the second half, but to no avail, as the defense held. The Herd line looked their best as they broke through the opposing line to throw them for losses. The Herd outgained their foe, but the gun ended the game as the boys started down the field and another Big Game went down as a tie on the records. 33 BASKETBALL HA" TEAM The MAN team, which put on some of the most thrilling basketball exhibi- tions ever 'witnessed at Sutter High, won three out of its six league contests to take fourth place in the league race. Contributing to the gala array of excit- ing basketball were the following players: Shank Boitano, Captain, Lawrence Ferdanig Lewis Terklag John Allen, Joe Pinotti, Allen Ferrettig and Chesley Felmley. The high scorers for the season were, Lawrence Ferdani with 159, Lewis Terkla llfld, and Shank Boitano 99. In the Mother Lode Tournament, the Herd A's bowed to Jackson in the semi-finals 28-20. All members of the team received block letters.

With noon instruction, many of the players could get extra experience and sharpen their game. The competition in the league was tough and these athletes deserve praise for their hard work and perse- verance. The teams were as follows: Girls singles, Betty Lu Cassoug Girls doubles, Mae Lasich and Lois Vairag Mixed doubles, Beverly Came and Bill McGeeg Boys doubles, J oe Pinotti and Erwin Glandong Boys singles, John Allen. 36 mum., . 1 BASEBALL The boys who signed up for the national sport to represent Sutter High on the baseball diamond this year were: Joe Pinotti, Shank Boitano, Chesley Felmley, Bob Stewart, Lawrence Ferdani, Erwin Glandon, Harry Broyles, Leland Glandon, Joe Vaira, Oren Broyles, John Golsie, Ronald 0'Neil, Franklin Wilds, Bob Oliver, and Ross Oliveto. Many practice games which were scheduled had to be canceled as the result of rain or wet fields. As this goes to press, the league games have not been played, but the team hopes to have a sucessful season with many good- looking prospects coming along fairly well. Mar. 20-Calaveras.. 9 S.

Many girls have participated enthusiastically in these physical education activities. They are directed by Miss Lagomarsino. Calisthenics were administered to the group each day for fifteen minutes before the girls Went to their respective sports. These make for thinner waist lines and trimmer figures. They also keep the girls in excellent physical condition. ' On days when the weather doesn't permit outside play the girls meet in groups, according to their classes, for hygiene lessons. These lessons include the study of the body structure, care of the body and general skeletal structure. RS CLASS REUNION It was a lovely June night in 1960 and it seemed incredible that it should be so like that certain June night fifteen years ago when our high school career ended. - Because of my position as public accountant, I was elected chairman of our class reuniong I viewed the scene to make sure that everything was in place and wondered how it would feel to meet some of my classmates whom I hadn't seen for some time. Don, Matson, who is now the proprietor of the former Belotti Inn, assured me that everything was in order, and he had instructed BeverlyDeaver, the cook, to prepare a royal dinner that would be served by her husband, GhesteraVaira. It was six oicloek and our classmates began arriving. Elinor Bovinich and Dianne Deaver weretthe first to arrive in their U. S. Army Nurses' uniforms. After having served overseas for several years they were now working in the recently built Amador County Hospital. Mary Boretta and Gracie Oneto, who own the Elite Business School, ar- rived accompanied by Frances Ferdani, owner of the Fashion Beauty Shop, and her four operators, Dixie Sones, Diane Popovich, Barbara McPherson, and Melba Nichols. S Then I noticed Bill McGee, the District Attorney, accompanied by Jack Vance, the sheriff, enter. I greeted them above the din of voices. Frances informed me that Mary Lou Cassella, who is now a famous danc- er, would not be able to attend as she was making a world tour. She was ac- companied by costume designer Shirley Bose. I was sorry to hear this, but was happy to hear of Mary Louis success. Johnny Inzunza, who operates the Fixit Garage, accompanied by "Shank," who is now the Coach at Sutter High, were eagerly greeted, and immediately the conversation switched to sports and who would win the Jackson-Sutter game. Just then the Greyhound from Sacramento pulled in, and we greeted Vada Altimus and Senator Eleanor Wheeler. Vada also works in the capitol as Senator Wheeler's secretary. Just then we noticed the reflection of a naval otticeris uniform in the mir- ror and thought it must be Don McPherson. After spending several years in the service of the N avv 0ve1'seas, Don decided to make the Navy his career. We greeted him and the chatter of all the voices brought back those familiar sounds that were heard at Sutter High. But, wait, something is missing. Oh. yes. how could we forget? It must be Vye. We then remembered that lateness must still be one of her character- istics, and then her hurried footsteps were heard as Gene Jovis fViolet J ov1- sichl of Hollywood just arrived. Vye's career as an actress had not changed her and with her entrance, our class reunion was complete. We lost ourselves ill deep reminiscence of our days at. Sutter High.

Bviliraitinn To you, Mr. Danilovich, our adviser and principal, we, the students of Jackson Union High School, dedicate this "Jacksonian" in appreciation of the interest you have shown in our studies. Your guidance during our high school years is carefully planned to prepare us for our life Work. L 1 neeman Oneto Tam Fulkerson ' Koskl Lx on Bird Sninetti Vinclguerra. Aragona Lane - Suclch Boltano Digltule Moore Jacksich Folger EDITORIAL To a soldier in the midst of battle, a war-cry or a military song is an in- spiration, to an athlete on the field of sports, a school yell may mean the difference between victory and defeat, honor societies urge students to better their class ratings, and, in this way, a school emblem may give high school citizens a pride in their building, activities, and general school spirit. From the first time Jackson High School opened its doors to .the young citizens of America, the Butte Tiger has been its fighting insignia. The green freshman who first enrolls leaves the school four years later as a full grown man willing to fight for his country, just as a small tiger cub 'grows into a strong and fear- some animal ready to fight for his life. From father to son, from senior to junior, for generation after generation, our long established school custom of regarding our mascot as an inspiration to gain a reputataion of fair play and co-operation has become a goal toward which we work. The famous saying, nMighty oaks from tiny acorns grow," has a new meaning today when one considers how small this school, its green and white banner, ' and its tiger emblem! But think again! Band all small schools, insignias, and various colors together and one has America, the Golden Eagle, and the Red, Wvhite, and Blue. ' g ' IN APPRECIATION , Xlfartime finds many streams of interest curtailed by lack of material and shortage of manpower, and in this respect school animals are no different from other ordinary, non- essentlal production. But ln spite of this the JACKSONIAN Staff has been able to meet its early deadlines under the excellent guidance of its adviser, Mrs. van Thiel, and with the ex- pert advice of Van, our ofllcial photographer. Judge, Mr. Aldine and Mr. Garibaldi turned in flne copy. Boitano and Oneto were the efficient layout team. Darrell Mattley, Robert Vela, and Rosemarie Garver of the art class supplied drawings, and publishers, Garbarini and Huberty, were properly severe. G. T. '45 6 wiuittr im. Mother Tiger teach me, please, How to rule with all your ease. You've kept me under guard so long! Now is the time for me to be strongg So when out into the world I lgo, Your guidance proudly Isll try to show. Koski and Boitano, 541-6 V - BOARD 0F TRUSTEES, Grandbois, Gorman, Aiken, Siefert, Bartlett Each year, board members assign themselves the task of improving the school they represent. Their main task this year has been planning the new gymnasium. Already they have made arrangements with Mr. Charles Dean who will be the architect and with Dr. Charles Bursch, Chief of the Division of School House Planning in the California Department of Education. The new building, a postwar undertaking, will fill a long felt need at Jackson High School. The students appreciate the work of these men.

E 9 CUSTODIANS a Class after class leaves Jackson High School, but Joe goes on forever. Joe Buona- corsi, with his aged and mellow pipe, is as much a part of the school tradition as the ivy on the walls. He has kept the school landscape in its attrac- tive condition for thirty-three years, and we know he will continue to do so for many classes to come. Our custodi- ans are as much a part of our school life as are our closest classmates, and when Tom Bar- ker left our school and retired to his farm after ten years of intermitten service, we felt we had lost a valued friend. In his place came J oe DeVecchio, who is very competent. We know we shall become as attached to him as we were to Tom. No year book is complete without a picture of the school. ln this view of the facade, we see shrubs and ivy planted by Joe's hand when the building was new. Both he a11d it are dear to the hearts of generations of Jackson students. Julia Freeman, '45 10 CLASS HISTORY lslere at last! Our Freshman days began in a flurry of excitement on Septem- ber 2, 1941, as,thirty-nine strong, we braved the freshman haze, lipstick, dolls, and pigtails. At the first class meeting, we gave our vote of confidence to president, Peter Evezichg vice-president, Mary Gonzales, secretary, Gloria Jiminezg and treas- urer, Robert Vela. Our Red, XVhite, and Blue Return Dance was the novelty of the year. Our football letterman was .lolmny Marques, who represented the class in the field along with seven other freshmen. The sophomore term found President Darrell Mattley holding thc reins. Other officers included Vice-President Kathryn Ferdani, Secretary Gloria Tam, and Treasurer Peter Evezich. Our "March of Dimes" Hop was a boost to the Paralysis Drive and a sensation at school. Gridiron players, Leslie Chapin and Johnny Marques, were the first of our classmates to don the "navy blues". Now we were juniors. We had been waiting for this for two years. With Peter Evezich as class president, Robert Vela as vice-president, Irene Koski as secretary, and Ella Mae Mcliiver as treasurer, we forged ahead toward our goal, success. Our class rings, arriving in March, were proudly displayed around the school and our Rainbow Prom, with its fountain and water lilies, gave us a night to remember. Mighty seniors! We walked proudly into the halls of Jackson High with Fred Fulkerson as our head, followed ,by Vice-President Kathryn Ferdani, Secretary .lean Campbell, and Treasurer Gloria Tam. Our first job was initiating the fresh- men at the annual reception. The senior dinner in November Hoverflowedt' with toasts and speeches. Our Block J boys included, Melvin Rose, Peter Evezieh, Nat Lane, Ed Molfino, Tom Oneto, Fred Fulkerson, and Darrell Mattley, who became a U. S. sailor in March. The senior play was a hilarious success and the big ban- quet in May found us talking about "way back when .... " Our adviser has been Mr. Buckley. And then came graduation and the Senior Ball, things we shall never forget. As we turn our backs on Butte Bowl after taking one last glance at high school memories, with all their recorded fun, we head toward a bright future for which Alma Materhas prepared us. Gloria Tam '45 PRINCIPAUS MESSAGE TO THE GRADUATING SENIORS: During the four years you have been with us, we, your teachers, have en- deavored to give you as full and rich a background of academic knowledge as time and energy would allow us. We have also worked to inculcate in you certain ideals and cultural and human values. The ability to think-clearly and cogently, to work intelligently and efficiently, to see a task through to its completion, once it is started, are characteristics we have tried to make a part of your pattern of living. The moral values of living have not been overlooked. The ability to temper your estimation of your associates with consideration, the idea that human rela- tionships dependon mutual trust, the spirit of cooperation, and the Dower to see the other fellow's view point have been features of our program for you. As you look back over these four years, it is our hope that you can say, "I have gained much." However, realize that educationally you are "just beginning." Education is a progressive art. It consists of the integration of all experiences in all fields of learning and living. If you close your books, hearts, and minds now, you will limit your cultural, creative, social growths. Only by daily and incessant thinking, learning, reading, creating, interpreting, and re-evaluating your cultural, moral, and social standards will true education become a part of you. Only then will you realize the truest goal of the individual: the highest possible improvement of self, which is basic to the improvement of society as a whole. 11 v SENICRS Darrell Mattley Class President 42 Social Manager 44 Blovk J ,45 Football 45 Jeanne Campbell Class Officer 45 Christmas Play 43 Baby Tigers 42-43-44-45 Edward Molfino Council 43-44 Athletic Manager 43-44 Oratorioal Contest 44 Block J 43-44 Senior Play 45 Irene,Koski Class'Secretary 44 Christmas Play 44 Ping Pong Champ 42 Baby Tiger President 45 Yell Leader 4 5 Louis Giannini Basketball 42-43-44 Baseball 42-43-44 Football 44-45 Senlor Play 45 Aurora Morillo Baby Tigers 42-43-44-45 Constance Spinetti C'.S.F. 42-43-44-45 Student Body Treasurer Annual Staff 42-43-45 Operetta 42-43-45 Senior Play 45 Robert Vela C.S.F. 42-43 - Class Oflicer 42-44 Basketball 42-43-44 Baseball 43-44-45 Senior Play 45 Louise Record Baby Tiger Vice Pres. 45 Christmas Play 43 Baby Tigers 42-43-44-45 Tom Oneto Block J President 45 Football 45 Baseball 44 .

Folger, '45 carry it on. g PROPHECY g Here it is, June 7, 1960, and I am standing all alone in front of the Jackson High School. Solitude reigns, for the dawn is just breaking over the crest of Butte Mountain. I guess I arrived a little early, but I did not want to be late for the re- union my class had planned fifteen years ago. I seem to be the only one who re- membered, for no one else is here. What is that! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Emil Marcucei swooping down for a landing in his heliocopter. I want to speak to him, but I know he cannot hear or see me, for I am only a memory. As Emil sits down on the steps, he sees a figure walking through the Detert Park. Upon observation he sees that it is Danica, dressed in a regulation nurse's uniform. They greet each other with fervor, and Danica informs Emil that she has been diligently working at the Mercy Hospital in Sacramento. A huge car drives up and, as the chauffeur opens the door, out steps Gloria Tam, the famous literary critic. I sit here wondering what will happen when Gloria comes face to face with Nat, whose book, "Why I Grew Up or Did I?" she severely criticized in every newspaper in the country. Emil, Gloria, and Danica decide to walk up the steps. As they approach the building, the front door opens and Vela and Giannini appear. They are apparently the janitors. . Voices are heard, and they all turn around to see the rest of the gang trudging up the hill. They didn't forget! Practically all of them came. I felt profoundly rewarded, for I had worked hard for the last fifteen years to keep my memory in each of their hearts, so that they would not forget this reunion. Someone suggested that they all go into the auditorium. As they walked into the hall, a hush fell over the crowd. I, alone, knew what they were feeling. Then the silence broke and they all began to talk at once. As I drifted about the room, I heard little snatches of conversation. Katie and June were trying to tell Irene and .Ieanne about their new shop, "Ye Olde Beauty Salon", but, as usual, Jeanne was chattering about her home in Indiana. She had married that mysterious man she had talked about fifteen years ago. Irene finally got a word in edgewise, and she told them that she had been traveling extensively throughout Europe doing Red Cross Work. I Julie was standing near the piano talking to Pete. She was telling Pete that Fred had been put in charge of the new P.G.E. office that had just opened. She expressed Fred's regrets that he was not able to attend, but she said that some- one had to stay home with all the little Julies and 'Freds. .Iackie, Marvynna, Louise, Aurora, and Ella Mae had formed a small group. I drifted over where they were standing. This is what I found: Jackie had been promoted to straw boss in the Box Factoryg Louise had married Perano and they were living on his ranch. Marvynna had forged ahead and was now singing at Melvin Rose's popular night club, in San Francisco, "The Neon Glare". All this time Aurora had been standing quietly by, listening to all these suc- cess stories. Ella Mae, who had been telling everyone about her seventeen years of happily married life, asked Aurora how she had enjoyed her stay in South Am- erica. It seems that Aurora, who had become a foreign secretary, had been travel- ing in South America with a party of foreign diplomat, Edward Molfino, who had gone there on a good will tour. I heard a very familiar laugh, and turning around I spied Connie sitting in a corner gayly laughing at something Darrell was telling her of his latest animated cartoon. He had worked out an hilarious cartoon about the class mascotg Soph- ronica, the Goat. Connie who had become one of the world's greatest poetesses was telling Darrell about the poem she' was now writing. All of a sudden Tom dashed in and explained to everyone that he was late, he had to have his paper, "The Farmers' Gazette," on the news-stands by noon. He also informed us that it had just been announced over the radio that Peter Evezich had been voted the outstanding baseball player of the year. ' I gazed around me and noticed that all the girls were here except Philippa. I drifted over to where the crowd had gathered around Pete. Just as I approached them I detected a slight odor of perfume and Philippa, swathed in sables, glided into the room. Admiring her attire, I could readily see why she had become one of the most popular fashion designers of the day. Suddenly someone remembered that Emil had not said anything about what he had been doing. As everyone looked around the room, it became apparent that he wasn't there. Oh, well, that's Emil-here today, gone tomorrow. While everyone stood talking, laughing, and re-living the past I realized that these people would no longer need me to remind them of each other, and so I de- lparted with the feeling that I, Memory, had become firmly implanted in all their carts.

After two weeks of steady sailing, the crew and officers received orders to re- port to the Point of Anxiety. This we did with much excitement aboard. Wlieii we docked there, we had numer- ous experiences. Two weeks later we were ordered to Freshman Return Land where we entertained some other ships. Wiser by then, we resumed our journey and sailed onward to Sophomore Port. YV e arrived there June 2, 1944, but did not gain admittance until Sep- tember l944. There we lost some of our sailors. After this, a wandering gob, Sally Erb, joined our ship on its adventurous journey and a little later Edwin Craft left. A few weeks later, we received a radio message to proceed to the Sophomore Cape Joy. We arrived there on time, to become hosts to the crews of our sister cruisers at a most enjoyable Valentine Hop. After getting underway, we asked our navigator, Miss Rendahl, to set our course again. A few days later we started, having sports on deck. Our crew supplied the fleet with a football star, casaba tossers, and tennis players. After a few weeks we were ordered to Junior Port. First we had to through Examination Rocks. There it was sandy and difficult to get the ship through, but hard work landed us safely. Ship Ahoy! Theresa Aragona, '47 Top Row: Darrow, Leonetti, Merlin, Moore, Peterson, Viscnrra.

These cruel creatures turned some of the little boys into girls and some of the little girls into boys. It was all hilarious fun and the freshmen enjoyed it almost as much as the seniors, except that all the freshmen were glad when it was over. On October the twenty-seventh, the first year students gave their successful Freshmen Return, with Hallowe'en theme. When the guests came into the auditorium, they looked like a very run down, old graveyard, with skeletons and other well known Hallowe'en figures gathered for the evening.

Early in the semester the council set up a twenty-dollar dance record fund for the school, requiring every class and organization to contribute five dollars to this fund before using the recorded music. These records will always be kept up-to-date. There in the meeting room every two weeks, dates for assemblies, student body meetings, and dances were planned by this governing body. Ar- rangements for Bond and Stamp sales and other patriotic drives were handled by this department. The New Year's Dance raised money for the school's annual fund. Be- cause of the fact that both Student Body Treasurer and Annual Editor are now appointed and that this year the junior representative has been added, the council found it necessary to rewrite its constitution, improving it in various ways. Mr. Danilovich, the adviser, gave many helpful suggestions, and the co-operation of the council in acting upon them, made for a smoothly running school. G.

For eight years girls and boys in high school who have made ten or more semester points have been initiated into this organization, and at the end of the first semester this term the total count of members was eight. This year the March of Dimes found a friend in the C. S. F. when the members sponsored the paralysis fund drive for the entire school. On March 16 these students gave a turxi-about dance which proved to be a novelty and a great success. Later in the spring, a party was given for the honor roll students. This was the first of a series of celebrations enjoyed by these two groupsg and it is hoped that in the future, this may create greater in-V terest in high scholarship.

Lyon it 22 J BUTTE The Butte, our school paper, is back in school for good, thanks to the journalism class, which put it there and meets the deadlines. This year the editors are rotated every three weeks throughout the class, each student in the group being an editor f or one edition of a BUTTE. These leaders have been: Joyce Lyon, Gloria Tam, Elsye Boitano, Connie Spinetti, Marian Koski, Fred F ulkerson, Fred Oneto, Ralph J acksich, Billy Gamba, Emalee Jackson, Neil Moore, Stella Record, and Teresa Aragona. Each editor picks out his own theme for this Butte. Some of our themes have been: Football, Report Cards, Christmas Time, Semester Test, February Birthdays, Spring Flowers, and many others. Our paper has many interesting items such as G. I. Flashes, Editorial, Feature, News, Class Reports, Tiger Talk, Jokes, Poems, Shop, Roving Reporter, and occasional specialties. Our adviser is Mrs. van Thiel. The staff has joined the national journalists associ- ation which keeps us in touch with fashions in high school papers, sets- high standards, provides a monthly advisory publication and rates our work. The school magazine is something to which every student and teacher looks for- ward. Many are sent to boys and girls in the service. A few "quots", straight from the Butte: 'LThe Crazy Butte "' 'Did I hear some one say ou1's was a crazy Butte?' Hlt may be. If it is, we must be crazy, too, because, you know, we enjoy the thing. We like to plan and write for it in journalism, we like the way the artstudents co-operate to enliven its pages with theme sketches. We get a bang out of publishing it, even though stenciling is exacting work and mimeograph- ing takes plenty of elbow grease. '6We are just foolish enough to think that the other students and most of the teachers like our magazine. It breaks the monotony of the day by day grind, every three weeks. We know our service men and women enjoy read- ing it, because they write and tell us how much it reminds them of when they were going to school. - MSO we the members of the Butte Staff, are not crazy after all."

Robert Swensen has been studying violin for three years and Lorraine Digitale, pianist, has been with the orchestra for two years. Three beginners this year are Frances McMullen, John Day, and Ralph Ianni. For four years Fred Fulkerson has been a prominent figure in the orchestra. J The orchestra made history this winter when it played for the Amador County New Year's Dance held in Jackson. This is the first time a high school orchestra has played for this dance and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music. The highlight of the chorus' activities this spring was the minstrel show which it put on with the help of the orchestra. Those .participating in this show were: Emalee Jackson, Dorothea Evezich, Mary Churich, Pat Chicoine, Beatrice Vinciguerra, Julie Freeman, Connie Spinetti, Marie Espinoza, and Sally Erb who comprised the chorusg Nat Lane, Robert Swensen, Robert Voss, and Fred Fulkerson, end meng Dale Galloway, interlocutorg specialty num- bers, Ralph J acksich, Fred Healey, Lewis Chicoine, Ralph Ianni, Emil Mar- cucci. Instrumental music was furnished by the orchestra and by our ac- cordian player, Frances McMullen. The show was under the direction of Van, whose patience and skill have become traditions at the Jackson High School.

Front Row: l-lose, Bust, Swensen, Day, Galloway, Oneto, Lane, Mattley, Bloyed. FOOTBALL Football at Jackson, this year, was something out of the ordinary. Mr. Danilovich announced to all boys that he had not entered an eleven man squad in the Mother Lode League. He also said that if enough boys turned out for all season, he would enter Jackson as a regular team. With this threat over them, nineteen boys came out every night and sweat together to form a power- ful squad. Everybody was in high hopes at the beginning of the season but soon found out that several other schools had hopes, also. With four letter- men, several of last year's reserves, and many greenhorns, the Tigers, coach- ed by Mr. Danilovich and c'Coach,' Buckley, showed up excellently in every game. The starting lineup was as follows: R. E., Robert Swenseng R. T., Ralph Jacksichg R. G...Melvin Roseg C., John Sucichg L. G., Maurice Plasseg L. T., Hoy Reynosog L. E., Nat Lane, B., Fred Onetog F. B., Dale Gallowayg R. H., John Day, and L. H., Frank Busi. The line had able reserves in Fred Fulkerson, Merle Bloyed, Emil Mar- cucci, Ned Vukovich, and hacks, Darrell Mattley and Louie Giannini. Fred Healey, our speedy halfback and spot passer, broke his wrist in the Sonora game and was out for the rest of the season.

Two games and one practice were played in swamps. The big game was a slough of mud and water. The Tigers, using a T-formation throughout the season, shocked Sutter by spring- ing a single wing against them. Passing was out, although Sutter scored that 32 way in the early part of the game. Jackson put on the power and Oneto, Gallo way, Day, and Busi ploughed through and around Sutter to a Score.

Playinfr ln a seven- tezun league, the 'l'ie,-ers were fifth. Here is the lowdown. "A's" Gifted with experience, good uassin,2.', and ability to work hard, the Varsity nu1nag'ed to come through and win several games. lie-turning' veterans were Nat Lane, Pete Evezim-li, and Dale Galloway from last yea!-'s B team, Oneto, Jacksich, and lleynoso, reserves, on last 5ear's A team. The season started off with the Tigers taking tive practice games and losing' four: however, they took only two league games. BNET H,-NITE: Our league games this year started off with Bret Harte at Calaveras.

Galloway, with 10 points, played well defensively, and Lane and Evezich, with 0 and S points, respectively, together with Oneto, showed up offensively. ' SONORAI Second game on the list was with Sonora. M0rga.n's height was too great for us to cope with, despite the ellorts of Jacksich and Oneto. Final score 35-221 For our side, Galloway dropped 7 with Pete and Ralph following with 6 each. TFOLUMNIG: Tuolumne forfeited their game to us, so we played a fast, close, and sometimes rough game with the veteran Tuolumne town team. Although we lost 28-20, we found that our forward, Oneto, had great potentiallties as a shot, putting in 10 points, with Galloway and Lane following with 4 each. CALAVEHAS: At Suttei-'s court 'on the flrst of February we met the Calaveras "lied- skins," and after retaining the lead for three quarters, we went under with a final score of 28 to 19. Despite colds on Eveziclfs and Ga1loway's part, we proved that we were as good as the other team until we relaxed too much. Lane made S points, Galloway and Evezlch 4 each, and Oneto 3. IONE: Determined to play hard to the end, the Tigers beat the "Mustangs" at lone, 3?-27. All our boys put in their best performances of the year. Galloway made 15 points after taking the ball away many times while on defense: and Oneto, playing the back- board, put up ll, and Evezich and Lane followed with 5 each. SUTTER: On February 23 came the big game with Sutter. ldvenly matched, the two teams kept the score practically tied throughout the game. Cleverly blocked from the bas- ket by their Sutter opponents, Galloway and Evezich had to be content with feeding Lane, who took advantage of this and piled up 22 points. Too many fouls on both sides resulted in our playing with only three regulars the last part of the game. The linal score was 33-30 in favor of the "Thundering Herd." Nat Lane was high point man of the season with 136 points: Galloway 110: Erezlrh 79. ulgvsn X The B team, consisting of greenhorns, except Voss, worked hard to learn 'all the funda- mentals. There, eight boys banded together to show good teamwork. "Fritz" Morillo and Blll Gamba were the forwards: John Day, center: and Bob Voss and Larry Arnese were guards. Robert Swensen, Ray Viscarra, and Ed Merllc worked as subs in both forward and guard spots. The Cubs also had a fair season, winning three practice games and losing two. They took only two league games, the lone game by forfeit. BRET HAIITE: The Tiger Cubs over-ran the Bullfrog defense to win the llrst league game. Score 17-26. SONORA: The speed and expert passing of the WVildcats sank the Cubs. Score 42-15. TUOLUMNE: After holding a slight lead during the Ilrst three quarters, the Cubs re- laxed: and the Bears took a slight lead: 24-23. CALAVERAS: The B team, unable to keep its Tuolumne speed, lost by a score of Cl?-28. KONE: After taking a forfeit from lone, the Cubs played a combination B and C team to win 56 to 18. ' SUTTER CREEK: The Cubs lost a fast game to the league champions by a -H-22 score. John Day, with 99 points to his credit, was high scorer: Arnese made 38, Gamba, 33. Both squads received the benefit of the knowledge of two old-timers, stars in their day. ldllas Day, former South Carolina ace, did much to help the squad along. Ambrose "Babe" tiarbarlnl, a star of high school and town teams here in Jackson, won the gratitude of the Varsity by his suggestions, while Coach Glenn Buckley bent his efforts to making the teams good fighting material. ' ALL COUNTY TEAMS On the all-county A team, Galloway Uacksonj was paired with Searcy tlonel, an out- standing forward: Ferretti and Pinottl fboth of Sutter Creek! took the guard spots, while Lane Uacksonj held down the center. Evezlch Uaoksonl, Stewart flonel, and Terkla tSut- ter Creekl were the reserves, along with Oneto Uacksonl and Allen tSutter Creekl, Day, Voss, and Arnese Uacksonj teamed with McGee, Valra, Oliveto and the Glandon brothers, Erwin and Leland tSutter Creekl, to make up a fast, sharpshootlng B team. MOTHER LODE TOURNAMENT The Tiigers fared well in the Mother Lode Tournament in Sonora on March 3. The Tiger Cubs, after taking a forfeit from Ionek, were turned back by Calaveras, tournament winners. The Varsity played lone for the honor of going to Sonora. VVith revenge in their hearts, the Tigers downed Sutter Creek in order to play in the finals with Sonora. Jackson lost this exciting game to Sonora to be runners-up for the championship- of the tournament.

Six lettermen returned to form a snappy backbone and inspire the boys to the Amador County championship. The team hustled together through five straight wins only to be set back by Sutter whom they conquered in the return game. Our infield was as good as any in the league. Fred Oneto held down the initial sack while Mel Rose took care of second. Ned Vukovich handled the "hot quarterv and Pete Evezich kept things going on short. Roy Reynoso did a good job as an infield reserve. The outfield of John Sucich, John Day, and Dale Galloway, assisted by Ray Viscarra. Bill Gamba, Ralph Jacksich, and Bob Vela could stop all balls that came their way. The battery of Fred Healey, our curve ball artist, Dale Calloway, a 1efty, and Nat Lane, a veteran receiver with a capable arm, formed a combination that could meet any situation. With the championship of the northern division safely tucked away, the Tigers invaded the lair of the Sonora Wildcats, winners of the southern half of the league. Taking advantage of some timely hitting early in the game, and staging a four-run rally in the last inning, the Tigers won the ball game 11-10 and the Mother Lode League championship came to Jackson High. Physical Director Buckley and the team are fortunate to have the services of g'Bud" Huberty who gave the boys a good deal of his time and experience and was well rewarded for all his efforts.

The requirement for membership is winning an A block in any one of several major sports, football, baseball, tennis, class A basketball, and track. The following students have qualified this year: Tom Oneto, presidentg Fred Oneto, vice presidentg Dale Galloway, treasurer, "Bub" Molfino, secretaryg Nat Lane, publicity managerg Fred Healey, Peter Evezich, Roy Reynoso, Mel Rose, Maurice Plasse, Ralph Jacksich, Robert Swensen, Merle Bloyed, Fred Fulkerson, Darrell Mattley, and Johnny Sucich.

The students who have played make up an organization in our school called f'The Tennis Club." Meeting on Saturdays and Sundays when the weather man permits has brought us hard work, but at the same time work that has taught us to co-operate with fellow students and with our coach, Mr. Danilovich. Our aim has been perfection in form, stroking, court tactics, and last but not least, court manners which are all-important in any sport. What is seen in any practice or league set, is the result of many hours of hard practice. At the beginning of the year we had one veteran from last year's team while everyone else was new to either tennis or league contests. After having enough time to practice and regain what we had lost through the summer months, we held small tournaments every week. ln December and January the girls' tournament was held to determine our four top players.

N . In memory of V LIEUTENANT HAROLD JAY CORBIN who gave his life for our country and for " TECHNICAL SERGEANT DAVID SMITH who has been missing in action since October 1944 FUREUJDRD The Youth of today face many grave problems. And who, better than the youth realizes the responsibilities that are set before us? We are prepared to meet and answer these problems without overconfidence or prejudice. We are facing the world with open minds and hearts. After the peace is won, it will be our duty to maintain and see that no more wars are permitted to grow from greed and jealousy. This is a big order but our strength and faith are great enough to overcome all obstacles. page Eve PRIl'lClPIIl'S IIIESSIIGE In April 1945 the United States lost its Presidentand the world lost a great champion of freedom. The loss was great but the government carried on. There was no f altering. Only in a country where We have a type of government such as ours could the shift have been so smoothly accomplished. No one is indispensable. Education of the masses is responsible for this type of government. A government in which every citiizen has an important part to play. Y As students of a California High School you have exceptional opportunities to learn and in the future when you become senior citizens, I charge you to keep this heritageg Free Education, stable government, and a government by the people.

At our first class meeting, we elected the following officers who were retained throughout the year: Bertha Chadwick ...... .. ................. President Ed Searcy ,............. ..... X 'ice-President Barbara Strieff ,..,.. ........ S ecretary Kathryn Baker ...,.,.,,,.....,.,,............. Treasurer Due to war conditions, we had a night-out together instead of a ditch day. We went to Sacramento, had a delicious dinner, went skating, saw a show, and before coming home, had a snack at a drive-in. Reviewing back through the years to when we were freshmen, we find that we were the largest class in school, having twenty-live students. During that year we went to Stockton to skate, had a picnic, and gave several dances. In our sophomore year, we thoroughly initiated the freshmen, and were also given the title of being "The Noisiest Class of the Year", which we passed on to the Freshmen this year. In our Junior year, we gave a play, "The Green Light", and a "Sadie Hawkins, Dancev in order to raise money for a Junior Prom. We were very proud to hear that our Prom was one of the most beau- tiful ever given. V We will always remember the many happy times we have had while attending lone High. Motto: Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Colors: Blue and Gold. Flower: Sweetheart Roses.

We enjoyed working on our play "Act Your Agei' very much. At times we became rather discouraged, but after it was over, we all agreed that it was a lot of fun. We received our class rings in January and were certainly an excited class for a while. We all agree that our rings are the best class rings that have ever been, and if you don't think so, just ask us. Our Prom was on May tenth. The theme was Spanish and Spanish food was served at the banquet. ----Newell Whiteside page thirteen SDPHOIIIURE RECURD g l Top Row: Charles Towle, Rae Baxter, Eddie Lyman, Jessie Goiiinet, Mick Cronin, Stanley Keaney, Frank Kessler.

The Junior class presented the play "Act Your Agew on March 28, 1945, at the lone High School Auditorium. The play, a three act comedy, was well accepted by the audience. The cast was drawn from the .entire membership of the Junior class. There were ninecharacters: Jean Wakefield as Angy, Jean Goflinet as Jerry, Bill Jefferds as Gadget, Newell Whiteside as Jim, Edith Bordoni as Cora, Pat Watt as Helga, June Winter as Sandra, Chester Burris as Commander Stone, and a Freshman, Don Uhlinger, as a messenger. - The farce was the story of two young girls having to cope with the situ- ation of the unexpected arrival of two sailors with whom the girls had been corresponding. . Many comical complications also evolved when the girls' aunt came upon the scene as one of those small children who invariably make their presence undesirable. The usual "happy ending" unfolded itself in "Act Your Age" and concluded the J uniors, theatrical aspirations for the year. The play was directed by Miss Dorothy Harris. page twenty The band, this year, was composed of both high school and grammar school stu- dents, and there are ten students in second band. The band has played for P. T. A., the Mustang Carnival, Education Week, and it will play for the graduations. Mr. Johnson has obtained numbers that the students have enjoyed playing. ----Doris Tyler GLEE CLUB The Glee Club was a new unit added to the schedule this year, directed by Mrs. Steinman. Twelve girls enrolled in the class, making an equally divided three part choir. Some pieces were selected for A- Capella and some with the piano accom- paniment. The girls entertained at as- semblies, P. T. A. meetings, church socials and other school activities. ----Neata Smith N HRTS 'The main vocational interests this year have been Shop, Homemaking, and Printing. The boys in shop repaired cars of all makes, from Model T's to late models. The repair work involved everything from simple jobs to complete motor overhauls. Several benches were constructed for the tennis courts. Show work included hlacksmithing fsimplej , acetylene and arc weld- ing, installing of the hydraulic lift, repairing of farm equipment, fender and body repairs, and the painting of several cars. Clothing has been emphasized by the three Homemaking classes. The girls have learned style and color suitable to their personality, under the direction of Mrs. Anita Larson. The first project of the Freshman girls was jumpers. The more advanced classes have been working on light weight wools, cottons, taffeta and rayons. The first division of the printing class met with Mr. R. P. Harris, instruc- tor, ill his private shop on January fifth. The class began with setting hand type and learning to operate the linotype. There are two different classes two days each week. The groups in- clude Journalisim stu- dents who are able to attend, and others who are interested in print- ing as a possible future trade. page twenty- three UUCRTIUIIIIL SPO RTS v l -L GIRLS' SPDRTS Top row: K.

During the beginning months of school team games were played including dare-base and dodge- hall. During the baskethallqseason, we practiced once a week but had no inter-class games as was planned. Hiking was one of our favorite forms of amusement. Starting at 8:30 a. m., we would hike until 9:30 through the fields surrounding lone High. During the Winter months We danced when the weather would not permit being out-of-doors. Barbara Strieff furnished music on the piano. Spring found us full of enthusiasm about base-ball and other out-of-door games. All of these sports have been under the supervision of Mrs. Leona Sheridan. ----Bonnie Leach page twenty-six FO0TBFlll Standing: N. Vtfhitesidc, B. Ruph-y, J. Strieft, L. Knykendall, IC. Searcy, M.

T L ' The Mustangs entered in the Mother Lode football league for the first time in three years. The 194-4 football season began with calistheuic training for the first few weeks and then the different squads began practicing basic football. Practice periods were held at the Preston football field between 8:30 and 9:30 a. m. Coach Harry Keaney decided that we did not have a squad large enough for an eleven man team so the Nlustangssentered into the six-man football league. " Having a small squad, of which most were green players, and also lack- ing in larger players, the Mustangs were not in the best situation for Football, but they were still in there lighting. The Mustangs came out victorious in one of the four games played. They played two league games and two practice games. There was one eleven-man game played, and this was with Jackson.

At the first of the season the Bee and C squads practiced in the morning and the A team practiced at night. The practice periods were held in the Women,s Club Auditorium. During these periods the players were divided into two groups and scrimmage games were played. The lone Mustangs again entered into the Mother Lode Basketball league. The Mustangs did not have a very good season due to the small squads and players. The Mustangs were eliminated from the Mother Lode Tournament by losing their last game. Ed Searcy and Noel Stewart were selected out of the A team to play in the all star county team. page twenty-nine ' BIlSEBIlll The 1945 Baseball season began with emphasis on fielding practice and the developing of an infield. Coach Harry Keaney then started all the players on hitting practice while individual coaching was given to pitchers and catchers. ' The Mustangs entered into the Mother Lode Baseball league this year. The league is divided into two sections, and the winner of these two sections will play for the title. Several practice games were played before the opening ' of the league. i The Mustangs do not have a very large squad, but they hope to develop more players for the coming years. p e thi 1 TEIIIIIS Left to right: Bill Jefferds, Barbara Strieff, June XVinter, Pat XVatt, Jean Goffinet, Betty Buckley, Chester Burris This year Ione has had the largest turn-out for tennis in several years. Many freshmen are learning to play, and more upper-classmen have tried out for the tournaments. Several practice matches were played with Jackson and Sutter Creek. A practice board for tennis was set up for the beginners, and a new net was obtained. Four benches, set in cement, have been added to our courts. In the practice games J une Wrinter, Pat Watt, Colleen Kelly, Jean Goffinet, Betty Buckley, Barbara Strieff and Michael Kahl played. Bill Jefferds and Chester Burris will play boys' doubles in the Mother Lode Tournament. At the time this book goes to press, we do not know who will represent girls' singles, girls, doubles, mixed doubles and boys, singles.
