Even though they lost a good many men through graduation, Coaches Neil
Sweeney and Don Seaver built up another football squad tull ot determination
and tight. Despite winning only 3 games during the season the boys showed
plenty of hustle and ability. Victims this year were Newman 26-6, Tracy, l9-O,
and Emeryville, 26-6. Twelve boys made their block this year.

It was 9:45 A.M. and I was working the "early-
bird watch" out of Pleasanton. My name is Iohn
Delucci. I'm a cop.
On this particular morning I was standing on
the corner by Hagstrom's watching the people
go into the store. Everything was quiet and
peaceful as it always is in Pleasanton.
Iust as I was about to go across the street Mr.
Edmands stopped me. He said that I should
read the Times as there would be a big news
story in it that afternoon. I suggested we go
across the street to the Pleasanton Coffee Shop
for coffee and do-nuts.
We were sitting in the coffee shop when I
heard a loud noise. My cop's nose told me to
see what it was all about. I saw Alan Iensen
drive up to Iirnie's Shell Station. He had a "neat"

the door to see why they were in such a rush
I heard Dick Guasco yell, "Hurry up because

Henderson told Alan to "get with it" as he had
to pick up some linoleum for his mother at Bob
Koopman's. They yelled so-long to me and
roared off down the street.
It was 10:22 and I took up my stake-out in
front of Iorgenson's Pharmacy. They were hav-
ing a sale and I wanted to be sure none of the
ladies got too rough. As I was about to walk

into the store Bob Oxsen came tearing out. I
grabbed his shirt and said, "Well, young man,
where are you going in such a hurry?"
"They just received a new shipment of maga-
zines at the Bus Depot. If I don't get some to take
home to my wife Graham and Hitch will be
getting some business."
I questioned him and then let him go because
I knew he wanted to please his new wife.
As I was getting into my car I heard a sound
like shooting coming from Viada's Home Ap-

pliances. I smelled trouble and took off on the
run expecting to find just about anything but
what I did. Mr. Viada had just received a new
T.V. and he was showing a newly married cou-
ple, Darla and Dan Gellerrnan, how the tone
It was now 10:47 and once again I started
for my car but noticed a crowd of boys standing
in front of the Pleasanton Furniture Store. I
walked up just as Ken Whitaker said, "We'd
better march over to the Pleasanton Floral Shop
right away and order the flowers for the girls."
I'm a cop and cops are curious. I asked them
what the flowers were for. jerry Salac piped up
and said, "The Senior Ball is only three days
That explained why all the girls were in the
Lo-Na' Style Shop that morning. They were look-
ing for formals for the dance.
It was now l 1:03. I was driving down the main
street when I noticed jan Griffith coming out of

Christesen's where no doubt she bought another
shirt like the one she showed me last week. I
waved to her and at the same time discovered
I had a grocery list stuck in my hat that my wife
had given to me.
I drove down to Frudden's Market. As I
walked into the store Mrs. Frudden called to me,
"Mr. Delucci, I've a message for you."
"Yes, ma'am," I said.
"Your wife called and said you were to go to
Pat Dixon's Dress Shop and pick up a dress she
bought and bring it home with the groceries."
On my way to the dress shop I stopped and
bought some paint thinner at Kolln's Hardware
Store and then dropped everything off at the
house at exactly 11:35.
"What's that, ma'am? You want to know how
I knew the time. Well, ma'am, I'm a cop."
It was 11:38 and I started to pound my beat
again. As I walked up the street I noticed Gari's
had a crowded store. Many of the teenagers
were trying on suits just received. I couldn't
figure this out because I knew they certainly
didn't like to wear them.
I heard Dick Dutra complaining and Phil
Henry was saying, "If it wasn't for my mother
and the Senior Ball I wouldn't have to even wear
one of these monkey suits."
Laughing I walked on up the street until I met
my sidekick Walt McCloud in front of the City
Hall. It was 12:00 noon and he was just coming
on duty. We both had the beat that afternoon.
"Yes, I know I had the early-bird watch, but
this is Pleasanton."
McCloud said he got a call from Iohn Edgren
and Sons. They were showing the new cars and
wanted us to keep an eye on the show-room.
"Well, Walt, what seems to be the trouble," I
asked because I noticed he looked a little pale
"The same old thing, lohn," answered Walt.

we caught up with the car which was loaded

I asked to see the license of the girl who was

I asked her what the heck was the big rush.
