FOREWORD You hold in your hands the Berkeley High yearbook, the Olla Podrida. It is the product of the combined efforts of more than twenty seniors, and as many lowerclass Pod Salesmen, without whom the book couldn't have been published. This term the format of the Pod has been changed, but not the basic idea. Back in June of 1897. when the first Pod was issued, it was decided that the yearbook would serve as an aid to the memories of the graduating seniors, a diary, so to speak. And that idea remains unchanged today. This Pod has tried to put its diary into chronological order, to follow a student's career through Berkeley High School. As you leaf through the book you will find the school government, which was here when this class first came to Berkeley High. Then come the activities, the clubs, and the arts. The spring sports come next. Finally we have the classes. Our line of reasoning on the placement of the various grades was: "You have to be a low-ten before you become a graduating senior.'' And the pictures were placed accordingly. The last eight pages of the Pod were added at the unanimous request of the staff in response to pleas from the student body in general. They are eight pages of unglazed blank paper, especially reserved for autographs. And that s how this Pod was built. The staff has finished with the planning and production; the book is in your hands. We sincerely hope you like it. WILSON TALLEY. Editor . y • -V . . Jz. . —tS V 7 V

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE Graduating seniors, I admire you! Not only are you one of the largest classes to attend Berkeley High School, but you have participated and excelled in all fields— scholastically and otherwise. There are more special privilege sealbearers in your class than ever before. Your Senior Play "Beggar On Horseback" gave acting and directing opportunities to over one hundred high seniors. As an addition to the play, an orchestra consisting of only high seniors was used for the first time by your class. Yes, you have been venturesome, and have brought new ideas to our school. Even this Olla Podrida s different from any yearbook previously compiled. A large school, Berkeley High has given you many opportunities to prepare yourselves for life’s adjustments. From athletics you learned fair play and good sportsmanship—how to lose as well as how to win. You have all discovered different interests and different aptitudes during your years with us. Each one of you has been able to develop his own ambitions, to build his own personality. We have tried to make this campus a small, practical world. If each one of you in this graduating class continues the commendable progress you have shown during the last three years, you will be a credit to your community and to America. Having worked with you collectively and individually, I feel that you are aware that success and happiness are not easily attainable in the present world. Hold fast to your ideals, and they will help you overcome any future difficulties. —ELWIN LeTENDRE. Principal
