77 2617S ' 67 POD: A VENTURE IN PHOTOJOURNALISM Five decades ago at a young Berkeley High School, a magazine called Olla Podrida (what our Spanish forefathers romantically called a " pot of stew " ), chronicling the school activities was published every month. Eventually, Olla Podrida was printed only in January and June, at the close of the two school semesters. Now the January Pod, like the January graduation, has become ob- r . solete. This single issue of Olla Podrida y !) ® s a milestone in yearbooks at Berke- ley High: the first to include the history of an entire year in one volume. But it is unique in more than the simple elimination of the Jan- uary volume. Production of Olla Podrida became the subject of an advanced journalism course, instead of an extracurricular project. Two Pod staffs combined their talents with the Berkeley High Photography Club and O ' Gorman Photo- graphy Studios to supply the Brazelton Printing Company with the material included herein. Readers who compare this volume with former Pods can ' t fail to notice the increased size, over three dozen pages of candid photo- graphs (this amount has never been approached in previous books), and additional blank pages for autographs. Berkeley High incorporates a wide variety of cultures, and any school project must overcome this obstacle to appeal to all students. The Pod staff was dedicated to that goal, and this annual therefore attempts to focus on the entire spectrum of Berke- ley High activities, including: SENIORS For almost 1,000 seniors, June 1967 marks the culmina- tion of thirteen years of public education, as one-third of Berkeley High ' s student population don their caps and gowns to celebrate the sentimental formalities of a high school graduation. The following pages contain their portraits and a complete history of their final year in high school, including the mighty seniors famous car wash, a literal " wash-out. " UNDERCLASSMEN After a controversial effort to reduce Pod costs by eliminating underclassmen pictures, the Pod staff agreed to include photographs of juniors and sophomores, accom- panied by a detailed history of their year at Berkeley High.

HISTORY Probably the most memorable of 1 966-67 events among many BHS students was the bitter struggle to save the civic park from becoming an asphalt parking lot. The determined student body campaigned so earnestly to protect the park that at last the city backed down and agreed not to convert it. The complete dramatic tale of the month-long crusade, the history of two Boards of Control, all the rallies, and award-winning students (to list only a few of the features) are all incorporated in the history of an exciting annum. CLUBS Every club and organization, from the Rally Committee to the Dog Training Club, is included in a special section of this Pod, with pictures and histories. PAD The Performing Arts Department produced a varied program throughout the year. This new Pod offers a complete write-up of their excellent entertainment so BHS students can remember their stage productions. SPORTS An exciting year in sports merits detailed coverage, and the Pod staff enthusiastically complies. In this edition is a complete record, fully photographed, of how the football and basketball teams battled to the top of the Alameda County Athletic League. The Pod sportswriters couldn ' t fail to include the gymnasts, wrestlers, harriers, trackmen, swim- mers, golfers, and baseballmen, including the Jayvee and soph squads. This, then, is the sum total of a year ' s work by two jour- nalism crews. It is a bold attempt to deviate from the normal, dull, high school chronicle. We did not just try to change the old stagnant format, but rather we completely overhauled it. We have instituted radical, and we hope beneficial, changes in the former " picture book. " We withstood an almost dis- appointing sales campaign and intense student protests over the exclusion of underclassmen ' s individual pictures to re- cord a complete, exciting, and diverse annum. This is an experiment in yearbook production, and we hope it has succeeded in setting a precedent for future year- books. We took advantage of the liberal and progressive atmosphere at Berkeley High to institute these changes; without that element, it would have been impossible. This has been a memorable year, and we have endeavored to compile a memorable yearbook. We have attempted to present the year ' s history in proper proportion as a service to the student body of Berke- ley High. This issue is dedicated to no one and everyone. We hope we have achieved by our efforts a successful yearbook, not as previous Pods were successful, but as future ones after our fashion will be. 4
