D»OSm O-" WE STAND TOGETHER As we travel down that endless road that marks the passage cf time and human life, we are confronted by a great many problems which, sooner or later, must be solved. Perhaps the most vital of these currently facing our country is that of racial discrimination. The methods utilized to solve this problem by certain individuals in the deep South during the last two years have left a blot upon the history cf the United States. Yet even in the face of this, we of Berkeley High can be proud, for we have upheld our standards of unity, harmony, and equality. A quick glance at a basketball game, a band rehearsal, or a talent assembly graphically illustrates this point. Students and faculty of all different races and nationalities are there standing together to make Berkeley High the school that it is. But in a larger sense, they are not really different, except in personality. All men are created equal, and equal they shall remain. We of the senior class have reached the end of our three years at Berkeley High. When we leave, we shall throw the torch of democracy, and then it will be up to you of the lower classes to carry it to loftier heights than ever before has been attained. In closing, my best wishes and heartfelt thanks go to all of you, to the Pod staff, and to Mrs. Sidney Wales, who stood by us and was our guiding light during the production of this, the Spring 1959 Olla Podrida. Go in peace, DAVE JARRETT, Pod Editor 5

We are fortunate that the Board of Education decided to have just one High school in Berkeley. With only one high school, all students of high school age, from all sections of the City—North, East, West and South—arrive at this one institution and complete their High School education in one of the twelve largest Senior High Schools in the State of California. Here, for the first time, students from every race, nationality, and religious background, associate with each other in the classroom, on the play fields, and in extracurricular activities. Here at school we try to prove that there are good citizens in all parts of the world, that different races, nationalities, and religious groups can learn to live together in peace and harmony. Naturally, there are few perfect individuals in the world; but with our personal imperfections, we should try to be good citizens in the community and in the school, and we hope to be judged as individuals by our peer groups. A whole group should never be criticized for the mistakes or activities of one individual. At Berkeley High School, just as in our City, State, and Nation, students want equality. They want to do right by others. They want to be respected. They want, and need, security. Our students are willing to take their share of credit for our achievements. I asked that my picture in the Pod this year be a picture representing various races in school. Here you see me with a Caucasion, a Negro, an Oriental, a Spanish-American, and one of our American Field Service students. Each of these students represents a group from Berkeley High School. Longfellow said, "All your strength is in your union—all your danger is your discord." I challenge all students in Berkeley High School to prove that we can stand together, work together, and live together. Doing this, we will perpetuate and promote the real spirit and morale of our school. Your Principal, J. Elwin LeTendre 4 KU U) ( ) O u
