" T h e b est teacher I've e ver had". . . "I've learned more from him than anyother teache r". . . 'He treats his students like human beings' . . . are some of the com- m ents afforded by students w ho have had Mr. Martz in the classroom. Mr. rMaxtz's Civics ana U . S . History classes have m a ny times been the arena for heated debates and dis- c ussions with Mr. Martz as the overseer and frequently, referee. Hi s life has been one of c o n stant reading and study f or the students benefit as well as his own. Mrs. Martz 's a c a d e mic background ln- c lud es attending two Iyears at Mt. SanAntonlo Co1.e e, goingon to California Poly: technic at Pomona were' e received his Bachelor of science decgree, and, finally attending laremont Gradu- a te School were he earned his Masters of Arts degree. Members of his class e m phatically agree that as one students puts it: 'It is almost impossible to win an a Lgument with him". . . and " e is one of the most in- formed men on world affairs I have ever known. " Probably one of the re asons for this is that he is a member of the California Council for the Social Sciences and has contributed to its program by heading a section meeting at the state convention in San Diego last year. Mr. C arlton Martz un- d oubtedly has what it takes to make a classroom click. It's his interest in others and th e things around him that m ake Mr. Martz the superb teacher his is today. He has the uncanny power to spark his students into realizing that Civics and History are m ore than bland names and faces. And that islwlgy we feel that Mr. Carlton arrz is in every resgect one of the greatest teac ers ever to set oot on the Edgewood High School campus. "'! l FACULTY... WORDS OF WISDOM Good Byes are frequently difficultg this good-bye. is one of those for me, As ad- visor to the class of lt'J'7l.1, since your firstdays as Edge- w o od freshmen, l've come to know many of you, both inside and outside the class- room.

A s you look forward ret member that you are a very special person and that only Well, four short years have passed and you, the class of 197 0, are about to leave Edgewood High School. Gra- duation isbut one ofthe nu- m er ous goals you have set fo r y o u r s elf. Remember when your goal was to be a ble to play with the next d oo r neighbor, eat an ice cream cone or ride our bike?

Your graduation from Edgle- wood will provide you wit a rough sketch which, in turn, represents all the tasks you have achieved so far in your lifetime.

The mind of man stands in the center of two worldsg the material and the spirit- ual. The one to which we respond controls us. The question then is: which w orld will give us the true meaning of love? Which course in American history, and looking forward to grad- uation. This year, the ceremony willbe special for m e.

His love has nineingredients: patience, kindness, generosity, humility, cour- t e s y , unselfishness, g o o d tem per, guildlessness, a n d sincerity.

Remember no more effort is required to be high in life, to demand abundance a nd prosperity, than is re- quired to accept misery "Faith, hope and char- ity. . .

T h e w orld's people are phenom ena lly large in num - berand it is easy to develop a se nse of purposelessness. Still each of us has a dutyg know it and show allegiance and poverty. A gklleat poet has stated t is trut through "I bar ained with Life for arpenny, An Life would pay no more, l-loweverl begged at evening these lines: When I counted my scanty store. "For Life is a just employer, He gives you what you ask, But once you have set the wages, Wh , you must bear the task. - "I worked for a menial's hire, only to learn, dismayed, That any wage I had asked of Life, Life woul have willingly paid.

But if you will attain some perspective on man's situation and con- sider all man has achieved, You are number TEN!!! The 10th class to be grad- uated from Edgewood High School. The first class to b e graduated in a new de- cade. Althou h this is a milestone for Etggewood High School and a certain distinction for the class of 1970, in future years as we nostalgiate there T hi s June will mean an end to four years of learning and experimenting at Edge- wood for me and for you. Both of us will have been ob - served, judged, and branded with the approval of our so- ciety. My tenure and your diplom a , the rewards for faithfuland acceptable per- formance, could befor us the end to the searching and in- security. We have made it and can now rest. The only problem is that I feel less secure than I did in the beginning of this qua - drennium. The c on st a n t groping for answers has pro- uc ed not even imaginary intellectualsecurity, but has revealed a universe of frus- tr a t i n g, endless possibili - ties.

The Counselors AFS - CHAI 81 RICK...G00dbVe Seniors: lt's very hard for me to s ta te, city, community, expressm feelings in words and, especially, your a b o u t the past year that I have spent in your country, school. As an exchange student I found out that a Dear Trojans, To introduce myself, I am Ricardo Schonfeld, your AFS student from Argentina. Yes, Argentina is my c o u nt r y, the land where I was born, the place where I was raised. I come from a small familyg my father, 44 years old, isa chemical engineer: my mother, 39, is a house wife , no w studying third year of Law, and my only roft her, Roby, 12, getting re ad y to start high school next year. My life in this city was quite different compared to here. Back there I was a tt e nd ing a military aca- demy: Liceo Militar General San Martin". O u r school year runs from M a rch through December. Therefore, because of this visit to your countrty I have- n't graduated rom high school yet. Once back in my countrylwill have to. 1 . cut my hair, and go back to th e academy for five more months. Sports are an important activity in my school, because as onlya few of the other schools we have our own soccer. rugby, basket- ball. tennis. track and other fields or courts. Here I was on the football team. It was quite an ex- perience, especially the first two w eeks when I didn't k no w w h at was going on, how ever, I had to follow everybody running, jump- ing, etc, etc.. .. The relationship bet- w e e n teachers and students is quite different. We must si t straight the whole hour, a nd w hen we talk to them w e usually mention the w ord "Sir". We also wear u niforms to schoolg most of th e pri v at e schools have their ow n uniforms, with c oats and ties. The public schools have also uniforms, kind ofa white "shop coat' . Now when the year is al- most over, I begin to think in what has happened. I also look to the future and I see hopefully. . . along way to go, but believe me will never forget this year in your country, this year with you. Many were the things I have learned from you, and m a ny the activities I have enjoyed with you. To all of you, to the authorities of the school, to my counselor, my teachers, to all those that in one way or another helped to make this year something that I'll gear for me seems short, ecause now it's time for me to go back home. t But it seems to me like I ju s t c a me ,here be.capse5I.a have enjoyed myself while' the time has gone. I don't know that I've done a good job or not while l am here, but, believe me, I've tried as much as I could. I enjoy talking and knowing seniors both boys and girls. I don 't know how many of you that l've known, but I try to know as many as I could. As you know, no one is perfect then Iam sure there are some seniors thatl don't know. I would like to tell you that it 's honored for me to have a chance to graduate w ith you, Senior Class of '70, and to attend your school for a whole year. l would like to thank all of you that helped me, talked to me, said to me, and other things. Under the American Field Service I cam e here to spend one year of my life in America, to ex- change ideas, to learn new things, and to tell you about my country. l know I am going to leave West Covina, a place where I have spent a year, my home, my school, etc. , late in June. All AFS students will have a bus trip to New York. My friend and I are going to fly from New York, July 19 to Bangkok, capital of Thailand. I will go back to study in Prince o Songkhla University -Science Faculty. Hopefully, Iam going to be a doctor. So this is probably the las t chance for me to talk to you. No words can express my feelings except, "Thank you" for everything you 've done for me. I will never forget this year for the rest of m y life. If in anyway I can help you, please con- tact meg I will be glad to help you. A nd if you have time to write a letter, please do. I will appreciate that. If some of you have a chance to go to Thailand, please stop by and say "hi" to me. I hope you will re- memberme somehow when you hear the word Thailand. "Chai from Thailand" will remind you. Iwish you all the best of luck in your future years. never torget, and very es- pecially to mLAmerican families, THAN YOU ALL VERY MUCH. For you seniors, you that a re also living with me. let's promise something all togeth er: The name of Trojans will be always with us, and so m eho w . some- ti ni e, we will be together again. . .

He was responsible for our swimming pool, he pu shed for the Administra- tion to let us have Saturday a nd Su nd a y as holidays, a nd he makes the Sun shine and the grass green. But when Brent is not being funny, whichis rarely, he is one of the most deter- mined people around.

One cannot assume that mystery could produce anything magical unless sen- iors were involxed. Un the other hand, magic looses all meaning when stripped of its seniors, toll. Take, for ex- ample , the cold, bright morning when Senior Marvin Gross mysteriously parked his briaht yellow street-machine in tlhe seventh row of parking stalls in EHS' parking lot, instead of the tenth.. Strange, isn't it? The cru- cial question we ask at this point is: "How is this rele- vant to the Great Plot?" So, to get on with the G r e at Plot , it happened that, late on the eve ofthe Dayof the Great Plot, Louis by Geroge Merten Sergioslowlyleaned back in hi S C 0 lll fo-Rest reclining c h a ir, a joyous, contented b ut exhausted look spread acrosshis features: at devious gleam in his eyes. It was Julie. The lamp at his well- worn but orderly desk flick- ered for a few seconds, and Louis all but blend ed into the dim surroundings. Slowly the satisfied look was blend- ed into the dinidiirround- ings. All year long, it must be n o t e d, Sergio had always been seen trekking the length Q rr ti hr elim of flue trans .sf Troy with the most worried a nd concerned look on his fa c e - - a s if, the students w o nd e r ed, he was feeling crnmmy, or life, Une to the thoughts of a liberal artist, li a d a b a ndoned him. But little did they know the truth. N ow Ser gio dreamed. Deep in sleep, Sergio d re a m ed . He saw Joseph Stoecklein hustling smooth- ly from dee buildingto coun- selling, a slide rule twisting evilly in his hands. He saw himself pass by Papa Joe, looking neither left nor ri ght hut worriedly forward, seem- inglyignorant of the rushing crowd of students engulflng th em both. Then, for the most brief of instants, Papa .lo e 's eyes shown on Louis. a nd Louis in turn passed the word. They has passed each oth er up the next minute. but not before Sergio picked up the slightest hint of hidden nr y s t e ry from Stoecklein's fiance. He smiled inward- y, excitedly. The Great Plot was onl Ruth Geis peeked into the E n g lish office that brunch, empty coffee cup in hand. Seeing no Sergio within, she smile d , m uttering "Poor guy. Well, I've done all thatl can for him. " Mother Geis left. C ar lto n C. fxlartz fthe "C" sta nds for f'Civics"3 strolled out of C-o, locke his door and continued some- where. Funny, no one ever seemed to '-'now where he was headed. He was either pushinga movie projector or st ridin g by with one hand pocketed, but that was it. Today Mr. Martz observed a gro u p of student radicals smoking by cee lockers. Pursing his lips, Mr. Ixlartz thou ght finely about their topic of conversation and in - tellectual appearance. Looking up, he suddenly no- ticed the swift form of Papa Joe running up, glanced with a frowninto Stoecklein's an- g ered countenance, passed the w o rd , and strolled on- ward, his hurried strides leading him nowhere from the scene of the bust. But, UQ. f p. A-3-ef E , 2 Q z. ,, . 919?'?Hr5'5'7f,,,gn:p, vamfih, are Q 3 it must be noted, he had pas- sed the w o rd - -and -yet the Great Plot was on! Sergio eavesdropped on Mr. Wenner, teacher of m ath em a tics, ICM, and other hardstuffs. Mr. Wenner had paused in the middle of a tirade of differential equations, an absent, far- away look onhis face. Even as he began to mumble, the chalk was poised--ready to scribble mathematical state- m ents of the most violent n ature . "'I'hete's nothing more powerful than an idea . . . . You don't know where you are untilyou get there. " "Oh, b0yl ' Sergio b rea th ed with a grimace, "IC M must be a winner!" Yet the word was passed. Norman Silvey passed thro ugh the Sergio dream. H e was fingering his growth of side- urns, probably pla n ni ng next year's fan- tastic crop, as he instructed his O-4 class. A P e e ki ng Tom would have observed Sergio quiver a nd grin a little while still in the grips of sleep, for in s piration of inspirations! Si lvey had suddenly broken off his lecture on Far East civilizations, stepped down from his carpeted dais, le a ped to the door opening into the rear of 0-3, opene it without turning the knob, and passed the word to Sergio next door! " By George., I thing he 's goincg to do it! " Silvey cried won rously. A few weeks passed. It w a s after graduation cer- em o ni es. Various parents a nd students were scattered over the grassy amphitheater th at was the scene of many te a r s , smiling faces, and ha ppy gestures a few short m i n utes before. Dusk had fa ll e n . Nearby pine and spruce trees stood like shad ow y scarecrows in th e sterile warmth of the e v e ni ng gloom. Even the sounds of voices floating across the lawn carried a note of despondency, as if tonight were truely the end, instead of the beginning. Then out of the dusk ap- pro a ch ed a single, dark, trenchcoated form. It slow- ed to no nchalance, then petered out to aimlessness, head bow ed as if in con- tim plation, But it was joined by another, sporting a co at, before too long. A third , with a sweater, walked up, and then a fourth. Soon the group had grown to a crowd, which then expand ed to a party. In seconds, wonderof all w o n d e rs, the party had a- c hi e ved m ass movement proportions! Somewhere in the mass, somebod began to whisper. Ma k e that several people. Well, what happened is that soon the mass was a quiver- ing, turbulent body of hand m o t i ons and mouth move- ments, a ll in a seriously hushed tone! lt wasthe Edgewood High fa c u lt y gathered there on that forlorn space, telling a bout how it had struggled, reached, attained, hesita- ted, failed, and started all over again day after day for four years: nine months a y ea rs, four weeks a month, fi ve days a week, seven hours a day, etcetera, in a m a g ni ficent effort to ed - ucate! And it had suc- c ee ded in grand mystery-- grand magical mystery! The Great Plot was over, for a while, at least, The t e a c h e rs had not gathered th er e to pat themselved or their backs. No. The Great Plot had worked, but the G r e a t Plot would have to be started again next year.

Inj u ries and bad breaks pla gued the '69 Trojans to th ei r first losing season in CoachKen Wells' eight years as head coach at Edgewood. Early injuries suffered by Q ua r t erback Tim Roberts, Tackle Steve Lane, and Run- ning Back Randy Moersch, a .no ng others, forced the Trojans to play their less ex - p e r i e nced underclassmen. and also forced many of the teams top players to under- take thetask of playing both offense and defense. The fi- n al Trojan record was three wins and six losses. M a ny y o u ng Trojans proved promising or the fn- tn re with superb play and poise in the 1969 season. Among them are Sophomores Richard Valencia and Geb Church who had to take over le a dership in the backfield when injuries were acquired b y older and more experi- e nced players. Concerning Edgewood 's grid future, C oa ch Wells commented, "We have high hopes. A few kids are bac , but we will be young and be lacking exper- ience. Next year's outcome will depend on how our kids d e v elop both mentally and physically between now and September. " The 1969 season started offvery well for the Trojans when they won their first ga m e against Mark Keppel 14-12. Keppel had jumped ahead 6-O when sophomore qu arterback Dick Valencia plunged one yard for a Trojan touc down. Edgewood scor- ed again in the second quar-- ter on a 25 yard pass from Valencia to sophomore Geb Church, leaving the score at: 1 4 - 6 . When Keppel had scored a TD late in the sec- ond half, Dale Magnar inter- cepted the end zone pass on the two point conversion try to protect the 14-12 margin FOOTBALL 1969-70 3-6 Most Valuable Best Lineman Outstanding Back Most Improved Coaches Trophy Richard Suela Bob Harmon Randy Moersch Randy Scott Kevin Kelley of victory. Quarterback Va le ncia, playing his first varsity game, completed 7 of 10 passes and was named Player of the Game. In Their second contest, Troy fell to Rosemead 13-O. Senior Bob Harmon, who played guard and linebacker, was honored as the Player of the Game. Efforts were a lea ne title were stymied wfxen EHS dr o p p e d both of their first two league matches. Glen- do r a d efeated the Trojans 41-7, and Covina managed a 8-O win. The lone TD in the games was a result of a -5.4 yard pass plag from Valencia to Jim Straus augh, and complemented by a PAT by Senior Ricardo Scon- feld. Seniors Randy Scott and Rich Suela nabbed player of the game honors in the losses. When the team took the field at its 1969 Home- coming Game, it showed only a 1-3 record. But after galloping past Los Altos for a 14-7 lead at halftime, the Trojans continued to pound their way to a 26-7 victory and avenge the previous ye ar 's Homecoming lossz Halfback Geb Church caught 4 passes for 121 yards, and carried the ball for 45 more as he w as designated the contest's performer. Th e Trojans continued their ne w found winnirlg w a ys by dumping the Sou Hills Huskies 22-6. The first Edgewood TD came on an interception by Church as Rich Suela ran for a two po int conversion. It was followed bya 35 yard run bv Valencia for 6 more, with u s u al halfback kicking the extra point. After the Huskies netted six, Valencia passed to Church for 2l yards and a TD while Suela again added a PAT. Senior the igame 21-7. U guard and linebacker Kieth B ra ndrup was the player of the game. After winning two, the Trojans wenton to lose two. In a non-league tilt, Baldwin Park d efeated EHS 30-20 despite Randy Moersch's Best Player efforts at tailback and the defensive backfield. A 21-7 loss to La Puente, with Da le Magnar being the top performer, set the stage for the West Covina game. T he annual contest be- tween EHS and its Crosstown MVP Ri ri val was the most engross- ing of the season. The Trojan defense made a tre- mendous effort, holding West Covina to only one to uc hdow n, but that was enough in their 7-0 win. Senior quarterback Tim Robert s, who missed most ofthe early games due to a h an d injury. was the final selection as Player of the G a m e. Closing the season at 3-6, Edgewoo wasnever- theless proud of its many 1969 gridiron heroics.

" Future MVP Tom Glassen Drew Kelley has been ac- tive in sports all four years at Edgewood. His Freshman year e played "C" football, ' D" b asketball, and Frosh baseball. As a sophomore he again play ed "C" football, but broke his hand before basket - ball and didn't play sports for the remainder of the yea r. Last year he played 'B" football and JV basket- b all. This year he is start - ing on the varsity basketball squad. Drew is small a 5'5 lf2", but overcomes this handicap with his incredible quickness and agility. In "B" football, he was probably the smallest VH an on the field but had a fi ne year as a running back because of his quickness and determination. Last year in JV basle t- b all, Drew was named the M ost Valuable Player and made all-league, a very high honor. He was high point m a n O n the team, getting m ost of his points by going one on one with his defensive man. There was no one quick enough to guard him, so he scored freely against many teams. This y ear he started at guard for Varsity basketball and keyed the fast break and offense. Drew plans to at- tend Mt. Sac the next2 years, then go to a four year college.

The 1970 baseball team, plaguedby a slow start, and the loss of Coach Michael Lassalette, made a strong comeback to finish third in the Sierra League. While at practice in April, Coach Lassalette was s truck and seriousl injured by a batted baseball. Des- pite Coach Lassalette's loss, the team kept their spirit and continued all the deter- mination that he had taught them, onlty to fall one game short o a C,I.F. Berth. The highlight of the season came when Mark Conlee pitched a no hitter against his old teammates, Los Altos. Hitting was the early pro- blem of this year 's team as youth and inexperience proved to be a disadvantage as the Trojan's fielded on y returning Lettermen. The Trojans after losing four out of five pre-league games won six of ten league contests, only to drop the las t two games of the sea- son. Coach Lassalette credited the teams continued success after his injury, to the out- s ta n d ing leadership of co- captains, Richard Yaklin and M ark Conlee. The follow- ing game the duo combined as Conlee pitched a no -hit- ter and Yaklin went four for four at bat against Los Altos. " Follow in these plerfor- m ances, it was not ard for the restof the team to adapt to Coach Clieny Wells." Senior, Mark Conlee re- ceive d all league honors witha final league record of three w ins and one loss.
