The Men's Club, under the leadership of presidents Gabriel Martin and Bob
Lucier, experienced one of its most active and successful years. "Gabby" reigned
as president during the fall semester, and, in the spring assisted with the
Frosh-Soph Brawl. In conjunction with the A.W.S., the Club was behind the
semi-formal dance which inaugurated the elimination of stags. The idea evi-
dently held water, because the dance was judged the best in many a moon.
Lucier, better known as "Legs," was president for the spring semester, and
it was during his term that the Smoker was held, fairly brimming over with
sports celebrities. Ex-jaysee track stars Bill Wohle, Stan Hiserman, and Marston
Girard were present, as were football coaches Buck Shaw and George Malley
of Santa Clara and University of San Francisco, respectively.
The last social affair of the term sponsored by the Men's Club was the Barn
Dance, held the evening of May 12 after the highly successful Searsville picnic.
Straw, hay, and even alfalfa were conspicuous by their presence in abundance,
as were blue jeans, hiking boots, and vari-colored shirts. No costume was com-
plete, however, without a battered and bedraggled straw hat which looked like
the wreck of the Herperzul
During the fall term the Assocrated Women Students sponsored the Fresh
man Tea the Fashion Show on December 7 and a dance December 16 This
organization also took charge of selling refreshments on the Modesto trrp and
at the Santa Ana football game

Our dormitories are run on a non-profit basis. The house and yard duties are assigned
by the manager and each boy does his share of the work, thereby reducing living costs.
Lasting friendships have been made and valuable experience in group living has been
gained. Every effort is made to make these dormitories a comfortable "home away from
Dr. Taggart, Dean of Men, has already received numerous requests for membership in
the "dorms" for next semester, which speaks well for their need in our junior College life.
We believe these to be the Hrst dormitories in California to be sponsored and operated
by a Mothers' Club.

organizations. Besides presenting two major term plays it participated in the Spring Drama

Moon," delighted audiences for two nights in November with its mirroring of the antics
of a bankrupt and batty family, the Rimplegars.
Leading the actors to success were Fran Ryan, Charlotte Marshall, joe West, David
Farmer, Bill Dillon, jean Grinnel, Driggs Collett, Charles Dole, jane Lewis, and Frances
The Players presented their finest production in "You Can't Take It With You," the
spring term play.
Cast in leading roles were jean Humphreys, jack Kilpack, David Farmer, Marjorie Dahl-
strom, jane Sullivan, Betty Lee Scott, jack McDermott, Douglas Buzzard, joe Gantner, Mike
Kiely, Lloyd Martin, Gus Hebgen, Betty Kyle, Charles Dole, Marcie Baum, jack Galbraith,

With the expectation of making the 1938-39
junior College Campur a brilliant success the
staff started work on the book. A lack of funds
forced the staff to abandon their original plans.
As a result, this year the book has fewer pages
than last year's--even the page size is smaller
and there was less money for pictures. But, in
spite of this, the staff has tried to represent all
the clubs and organizations in school and to
present an accurate record of the school year.
Adalene Bowman was chosen editor-in-chief
again this year, and she appointed Peter Mon-
teith associate editor. Wforking with them were
Doug Hughmanick, business managerg Doug
Guy, sports editorg Claire Wolford, copy editor,
and Charles Dole, Malta Stepp, jr, Harry Henne,
William Luttgens, and Howard Peters, photog-
Assisting writers were Ted Van Arsdol, julie
Frease, jane Lewis, Virginia Dalton, and Bob
Mr. Patterson and Mr. Mercer were faculty
advisers for the book.

whose literary urges have burst the bonds of
wishful thinking Unlike the Campus, which is a
has no place for original composition the Lf:
presents a selection of the poems essays and
short stories submitted for consideration by
students of the junior College All material is
passed upon by an editorial board whose judg
ment is final The magazine therefore, may be
said to represent the creative ability and the
critical taste of junior College students

Two football games with southern schools
were the features of last year's grid schedule.
Coach Murius McFadden's outfit traveled south
to play San Bernardino, and Santa Ana came
here for battle. Few veterans greeted Coaches
McFadden and Bissett, and they pinned their
hopes on newcomers.
The San Mateo machine was off to a bad start
against the Santa Clara frosh, being trampled
to the tune of 13 to O by the strongest freshman
team said yet to be turned loose on the Bronco
Cassy Casanego, star of the Frosh, proved
himself ambidextrous by throwing a sizzling
right-hander 56 yards in the air to Schoepf
across the Matean last stripe, after he had spent

the afternoon chucking left-handers. Peterson
scored the second time for the winners on a wide
end sweep from 16 yards out.
Brilliant aerial thrusts caused the second
straight downfall for San Mateo when they lost
next to San Francisco junior College, 6 to 0, in
the Northern California Conference opener.
The Rams opened their scoring drive in the
second period when a pass from Conners to
Gray netted the winners 38 yards. Another pass
brought the ball within bucking distance of the
goal, and Al Boitano brought it over after a
brace of tries. The Bulldogs were unable to offset
this early lead.
The stage had a different setting the third
week of play when McFadder1's eleven found
themselves wxth a 13 to O vrctory over Stockton

A recovered fumble and an intercepted pass
put the Mateans in scoring position. The scores
were made by passes. Willie Silva tossed one to
Bob Irvin, end, and Noah Curti flipped the other
to Silva. The Berdoo outfit also scored on a pass.
Probably the most thrilling game of the season
was chalked up when the Bulldogs played their
one home game-against Santa Ana. The battle
ended with a 6 to 6 tie.
The most dramatic play of the game was
sponsored by Don halfback, Tinken, who took
a short pass from Joy on his own 15-yard line in
the last minute of play, side stepped and
squirmed through the Mateans to the 5-yard
mark. Here he tried to reverse his field, after
seemingly having a clear way for a score, but
was clutched from behind by Curti.
Earlier in the contest, however, San Mateo had
been first to counter. As they easily dominated
the beginning of the fray, a 50-yard toss from
Curti to Silva in the first quarter was good for
six points. Ed Huff set up the pass play by inter-
cepting a Don throw.
Defeat came back to nestle in the bosom of the
tired Bulldog team with the last game of the
season against Sacramento at the capital city. The
Panthers won, 12 to 7.
The San Mateo eleven played even-up ball
throughout the hrst quarter of action. But with
the second period a rejuvenated Sac eleven
San Mateo hnally gained an offensive chance
in the fourth quarter. Andre Bogart and Ed Huff
carried the ball for most of the drive on the
ground. Then Curti pitched to Silva for 20
yards. Again Curti tossed to Irvin for 20. On
the next try he dropped one 26 yards over the
goal line to Huff. Silva place kicked the extra
Despite their not-too-impressive record, San
Mateo placed three men on the all-conference
team: Willie Silva, Harold Stireman, and Al
Tamborini. Silva, of course, was quarterback,
Stireman a guard, and Tamborini an end. Noah
Curti, fullback and Ed Huff, were given second

SOCCER TEAM IN ACTION
energetic support with his accurate kicking and
In the forward-line T. Shiba displayed the
courage and gameness that spectators delight in
watching. Undoubtedly the speediest player in
the whole conference, he was an excellent field
player and was second choice of the all-con-
ference selections. Leslie Williams, beloved of
all, never let his team down and was as agile on
the soccer field as he is on the dance floor. George
julian performed at outside-right with ener-
getic stick-to-itiveness. W. Azevedo showed the
rest of the players what a less speedy fellow could
do when he knew how to handle the ball. His
work was always easy to watch and won him a
place on the all-conference second team. Bill
Fetter and K. Kestler had enough experience to
show the spectators what combination in soccer
playing was. The find of the soccer season was
Benotto-an individualist in his style of play. He
has had valuable experience in the San Francisco
League this winter and will doubtless be a strong
player on the 1939 team.
Of the twenty-seven members who received
the covetous Block "S", one would like to give
well deserved credit to the subs and to manager
Sollers, whose spirit and loyalty did so much
to make the season a success.
Most of the experienced players will be away
as the 1939 season opens. Mertens will doubtless
find a place on the U.C. team as will Les Wil-
liams. Dwyer will play with San jose State.
There'll be many openings on the 1939 squad
and with a full schedule of twelve conference
games and a contemplated trip south at Thanksn
giving vacation to play U.C.L.A., Los 'Angeles
City College and Santa Barbara Athletic Club,
the coming season should be a full one.

Varsity tennis at San Mateo reached a new
high during 1959, when the Bulldogs took both
singles and doubles laurels in the Northern
California Junior College Tournament, held May
5 and 6 at Stanford. Carl Joost ran off with the
singles medal, winning on a default from San
Francisco's Bill Canning, who chose to play in
another tournament rather than play off the final
match. Captain Alderman and Joost hauled
down the doubles' coronet when they dumped
their teammates, Tom Daly and Pete Monteith,
in straight sets, 6-4, 8-6. The latter duo gained
the final round by upsetting the finalists of last
year, Dixon and Hogan of Modesto. The Mateans
weren't even pressed in their victory, Winning as
they pleased, 6-2, 6-3.
In team competition, the Bulldogs ended the
season in a tie for first place with San- Francisco,
each squad boasting five wins and a tie. Iri the
playoff, held at San Francisco, the two aggre-
gates again split the decision! A coin was
flipped, Coach Bashor yelled "tails," but it landed
"heads" and the unoflicial championship went
to the Rams!
The Bulldogs played thirty-four matches, won
seventeen, lost twelve, and tied five. When the
chips were down and winning really meant some-
thing, however, the,Mateans didn't drop a match.
Joost, Daly, and Alderman travelled to Ojai
for the annual tournament late in April, and
all faired well. Joost lasted three rounds before
succumbing to Stanford's Larry Dee.
Joost, Daly, Alderman, Monteith, John Gar-
ton, Charles McCabe, and Bill Langford com-
prised the Varsity squad, included in the "B"
team were Bob Schnier, Charles Ewell, Mel
Carter, Torn Drisko, Bob Bonner, Vernon
Ileibbrandt, and Dick Carruthers.

Playing their heaviest schedule in recent years,
Bulldog baseballers swung through a successful
season to the last. Under the able hand of Coach
Lee Bissett in his second year as diamond mentor,
the Matean nine knocked out nine victories in
sixteen league starts.
As usual the first brace of engagements with
Modesto were rained out and these conference
tilts had not yet been played when this went to
press. The Mateans opened against Santa Rosa
and returned from the invasion with a split win,
2-4 the loss, and 1-11 the victory. Bill Preston
pitched the opener while veteran Noah Curti
hurled the nightcap. Curtiistarred with a home
run in the last inning.
Next for league play the Bulldogs downed
Marin 'Taysee twice in a row at Kentfield. The
scores, 14-5 and 7-2, tell the tale of complete
dominance for the locals. Preston again hurled
the starter with Manley Miles behind the plate
and Alec Cereghino hurling in the finals. Fol-
lowing a two game forfeit by Menlo which did
not field a team this season, the Mateans took a
double bow to Sacramento Jaysee, leaders of the
league, by 4-5 and 1-12 scores. San Mateo used
their same ball tossers while Howard Adler
shared honors behind the plate with Miles.
Out for revenge, Bulldog batters stormed
Salinas Jaysee nelders on the local diamond and
won 7-3 and 8-2 victories. Al Peterson hurled his
first league game in the opener. Curti had left the
squad with an arm injury.'I'he San Francisco Jay-
see rivals came to town and walked off with a
4-3 victory in the first start. However, the
Matean squad won the ,final by a 9-1 majority.
Against Placer, the local nine went through a
hot 5-1 victory to start and returned in the second
game to be beaten 6-7.
In the season's finale, the Bulldogs dropped
a double-header to the strong Modesto j.C. nine,
6-4 in the first fracas, and 8-2 in the seven inning
nightcap. Bib Bill Preston and tiny Alec Cere-
ghino did the hurling duties for the Mateans.
The Mateans Hnished the season lodged in
third place in conference competition behind
Sacramento and Modesto.
P- On the squad this season were veterans Frank
Pfyl, Alec Cereghino, Dick Harris, Hank Etzel,
Noah Curti, A,,. Orry Facchini, and newcomers Ed
Schultz, Manley Miles, Vahan Eranosian, Irvin
Alves, Howard Adler, Ed McSweeney, and Herb
With their 'new mentor, Dell Fishback, San
Mateo junior Colleges track and field team
turned in a successful season as the second best
team in the conference. Coach Dell Fishback saw
his men to five dual meet victories and only two
losses. The Mateans placed second in the all-
conference meet at Sacramento, the junior col-
lege of the latter city winning by a margin of
eight points. The'Bulldogs started by whipping
the Stanford Frosh. San Francisco State, San
Francisco .junior College, Sacred Heart High
School and Modesto Junior College later fell by
the wayside. But Sacramento and the California
Freshmen turned the tide on the local outfit.
High jumper Les Steers, who toured the
country under the junior Colleges name, placing
in several big Eastern indoor meets, was the
star of the season. He set a new conference record
of 6 feet 4 inches in the high jump, and a new
West Coast Relays mark of 6 feet 7 inches in
the Fresno Relays. The latter meet also saw San
Mateo claim its only National j.C. mark for the
season when Burman Skrable, Blair Hyde, jack
Moore and Francis Olson combined to run the
two mile relay in 7:53.2, three seconds under the
San Mateo was especially strong in the middle
distances. Blair Hyde, in the 440, Jack Moore,
in the 880 and mile, Burman Skrable, in the
880 and mile, and Francis Olson and Bob Joost,
in the 440 and 880, provided the strength, all
winning in conference competition. Steers was
constantly called on for duty in the high hurdles,
javelin, and discus, besides the high jump. He
was third best in the conference in the hurdles,
andwon the javelin at 195 feet 5 inches, setting
a new school record.
Conny Varneck, topping his performance with
a leap of 6 feet 5 inches, was outstanding in the
high jump. Bill Beeney handled both the Sprints,
backed up by Carl Oates who also broad jumped,
with Ray Altman and Harry Cox. Milton
Walkup did several events, being most consist-
ent at the javelin throw. jim Holloway did the
hurdles. Les Major was the leading weight man,
and was aided in his eliorts by Bob Roberts.
Takishi Shiba aided in the mile, jack Finnegan
and Harry Cox in the high jump. The deadline
of this story was set before the running of the
National junior College meet at Sacramento and
the junior Pacific Association meet.
San Mateo gained a tie for the crew cham-
pionship by whipping Oakland-Polytechnic Col-
lege of Engineering in the nnal race. But they
lost all chances for a clear win of the California
Collegiate Oarsmen's Association Conference
when they were defeated by the University of
San Francisco. A review of the season tells the
tale of hard-fought and winning races. In league
competition the usual San Mateo streak of good
and bad luck held true. The locals were stroked
by Sherman Frick and Chester Edwards. The
other portsiders were Conny Byrnes, Bill Whit-
tington, Wes Hicks, Malt Stepp, and George
Owens. On the starboard,.behind Edwards, were
Bill Dower, Tom Tinker, Keith Reeves, Harry
Prongos, and Bill Watson. Vic Feudale was cox-
swain. Mr. Rankin acted as coach.
Trouble in finding opponents was the main
difiiculty of the boxing and wrestling teams. Box-
ing is completed for the season, but wrestling is
just tapering off as this is written.
Several outstanding stars formed the nucleus
of the boxing squad. Merle Rivord, former
Golden Glove fighter from Chicago, was a new-
comer who proved a sensation.
The junior College won in the ring over San
jose State and Salinas J. C. but lost to California
Frosh and to Salinas in a return bout.
In the conference tourney at Salinas, Howard
.. QM WWA..
Peters, 126 pound scrapper from the Bulldog
ranks, was the lone winner for San Mateo. For
his work Peters received a gold medal. In the
exhibition bouts at the conference matches, the
Mateans showed some execllent boxers. Rivord,
Harry Davis, and others won their battles, but
they did not count as they were only exhibition
Several freshmen showed a good deal of prom-
ise during the season, and the hopes of Coach
Wilson for a successful team next season are
high at present.
Pete Marich, dark haired golfing star of the
jaysee links team, nosed out Bud Brownell of
Salinas in the finals of the annual conference golf
meet to win the title. Pete was the only Bulldog
golfer to qualify. He was an upset winner, hav-
ing shot steady golf for the entire tournament.

Tl: tu The Tfeqt
September 12-School opened, and the place
was overrun with wild-eyed frosh frantically
trying to find the right room and invariably
tuirning up in the wrong one. Willie Silva
ofhcially opened his term as student body pres-
ident, with Brad Evans assisting him as vice-
Betty Lou Simpson, first girl in the history of
the school to hold down the office of treasurer,
disproved the time-worn adage that a woman's
place is in the home by starting a dynamic student
body card sale which brought the desired results
in a rush.
Along Athletic Row, football, tennis, and
soccer got under way, with Coaches McFadden,
Bashor, and Francis more than satisfied with
September 25-The frosh, by now accustomed
to the ways and by-ways of school life, got their
first taste of night life at the Freshman Recep-
tion, with Les Smith's orchestra providing the
rhythm. The Mothers' Club, encouraged by the
success of their first venture, opened a second
Men's Dormitory at 15 Dwight Road.
October 1-The football team opened their
inglorious season with a 13-0 loss to the strong
Santa Clara Frosh. -
October 8-jim Watson was elected freshman
prexyg Dick Harris, "Blink" to his "inties," was
chosen head yell-provokerg and "Gabby" Mar-
tin took over the leadership of the Men's Club.
On the gridiron, the Bulldogs took a 6-0 lacing
at the hands of San Francisco j.C. in the con-
October 13-After much deliberation, Three-
C5i'7Zf1'6'd M0011 won over The Rivalr as the
October 15-A casaba magnate, dragging
basketballers to S.M.j.C. from all over the coun-
try, provided Murius McFadden with the best
potential team in y'ars 'n y'ars. The guys, headed
by giant Les Major, all six foot eight inches
of him, entered a local night school league and
ran roughshod over all opposition . . . They
promised us a surprise at the annual Pre-Med
dance, and for those who hadn't been in school
the year before it certainly was. The sight of
"Skinny," huge knock-kneed skeleton gracing
the bandstand, didn't do our blood-pressure,
high or low, much good!
October 28-The annual trek to Modesto for
the football classic was acclaimed an even greater
success than last year, with 250 enthusiastic
rooters jamming the special train. Lime Rickey
and his Party-Packers held sway all the way
home, 'n there sure was a hot time in the old
day-coach that night! Oh yes, the footballers
dropped a 6-O decision to the Pirates.
November 4-McFadden's cohorts made up
for the Modesto licking by plastering a startl-
ing 12-7 defeat on the collective proboscises of
San Bernardino j.C. How they did they'll prob-
ably never know, but it was fun anyway.
December 2-The yearly A.W.S. Fashion
Show, again superbly directed by Adalene Bow-
man, sky-rocketed to new heights. It was com-
pleted with beautiful mannequins and handsome
ushers. Yes, they let the male element in the
balcony on the promise that they refrain from
any remarks . . . Needless to mention, they did!
. . . One of the best-received assemblies ever
staged was put on by the National Blind Society,
featuring Etna the Wonder Dog, and Pierce
Knox, blind xylophonist . . . On November 17
and 18 came what amateur thespians had been
waiting for-the performance of "Three-Con
nered Moon." Miss Beveridge really out-did
herself in this classic, words fail us in descrip-
tion of it, so we'll let it go with a simple
December 16-This night sounded the death-
toll to all stags. The A.W.S. Men's Club Dance
initiated the new custom, which seems to have
stuck. "Best ever" was the unanimous decision
of those in attendance. Willie Silva, Hal Stire-
man, and Al Tamborini were chosen all-confer-
ence footballers, and Erwin Alves gained sim-
ilar honors for soccer.
january 10-Preliminary student body elec-
tions, with twenty-four candidates filing inten-
tion to run. The first election returns had to
be confiscated fsomebody got funny and stuffed
the ballot boxlj and a re-election was held.
After all was ironed out, Harry Prongos emerged
victorious in a hectic race for president, nosing
and Brad Evans. Ken Hamilton took over duties
as vice-prexy, Betty Lou Simpson was re-elected
treasurer, and Pat Bentley bought herself a
notebook and borrowed somebody's pencil-she
got the secretary's assignment . . . Clint Ward,
Zelda jolin, and Ed Huff were elected high
soph, low soph, and high frosh representatives.
january 21-Final exams over and done with,
jubilant students "swung and swayed" with Don
Kaye at the semi-annual Soph Formal. Dell
Fishback, former California hurdling great, was
appointed head track coach and English in-
February 16-Believe it or not, student body
cards were voted compulsory by the students
themselves! Five-buck spots were seen floating
around all over the place, the idea was that
successful . . . "You Can't Take It With You"
was chosen as the term play, to be given April
21 and 22 . . . Prexy Prongos injected some real
spirit into doings around school, with many
March 2-The "best ever" basketball team
took a nose dive via ineligibility, drops, and two
forfeits, and closed their season in fourth place
. . . Two days later athletic spirits were rejuve-
nated when Les Steers high jumped 6 feet SVZ
inches, and barely flicked off the bar at a World's
record height of 6 feet 10, in the Exposition Meet
on Treasure Island.
March 10--Once again the Frosh-Soph Brawl,
with the Sophs, as usual, holding the upper hand.
Darwin Wheeler stole the show almost entirely
when he gave an imitation of Brodie taking
his "yump" off the Brooklyn Bridge in minia-
ture, much to the delight of jammed and packed
McFadden Field fuh, we guess we mean
"lake" lj. Les Major was selected all-conference
center by local sports writers, and a week later
Noah Curti gained similar distinction when the
coaches sent in their votes.
March 17-St. Patrick's Day was celebrated in
a novel fashion when the Art Club gave their
dance, with "Gold Rush Days" as the theme.
Ed Smith's orchestra provided the moosic, and
Gus Hebgen's attempts to "see the light" with
his miner's glimmer met with both hilarious glee
and embarrassing moments to some!
April 24-The annual Men's Club Smoker,
with a bevy of sports celebrities in attendance.
Prexy "Legs" Lucier was the "great gray brain"
behind it all, and 't was judged best in y'ars.
Free smokes were passed out right and left,
until one over-enthusiastic inhaler got both mitts
in the container and the process was discon-
May 6-Sy Bashor's tennis team, after tying
for the conference championship, took six out of
the twelve medals given at the conference tourna-
ment, held this year at Stanford, Carl Joost won
the singles title, Joost and Alderman defeated
Tom Daly and Pete Monteith for the doubles
coronetg and Daly took third singles laurels.
Quite a haul, if we do say so ourselves.
May12-The Searsville picnic, an event to
go down in the annals of school history as one of
the most successful ever staged. With over four
hundred basking in the sunlight, including a
horde of teachers, you just couldn't ask for any-
thing more. The Barn Dance that night was
equally as much fun . . . Harry Prongos and
Dot Willis were awarded their prizes for being
chosen the most popular boy and girl in school,
Prongos eking out a two vote win over Doug Guy.
May 26-The Cotton Formal, where the gals
got back at the guys, by asking fbem to the
hop. Cotton dresses were the order, and a more
vari-colored display of hues was ne'er seen by
these eyes . . . just before we went to press,
june 16 was decided upon as the date for the
Soph Formal, but the orchestra had not as yet
