These paths have led to fields of study, activities, and compan- ionship. The footprints left by alumni have molded E1 Cerrito High into the outstanding school that we are so proud of. When we enter as Sophomores, we im- mediately fall into step with what has gone before us. As Juniors we begin to leave definite impressions in these paths. The Seniors, having worn deeply into their footprints, now look back with hope that they shall leave their footprints for other classes to follow. He is liked for his humor and forthrightness. He is respected for his judgment and integrity . . . As a track coach he has built the E1 Cerrito Relays into one of the outstanding athletic events in Northern California. His teams have maintained the highest standards in performance and sportsmanship. It is with pride that We dedicate the 1955 E1 Camino to a man who has done so much for E1 Cerrito, Mr. Hale Roach. 5 I 4 v - I Conn!

So that you can recall these events we are giving you a summary of the news for fall 1954 and spring 1955. About the time school opened, thoughts were turned to the World Series. More than a few people lost some money when the New York Giants swept the series with the Cleveland Indians. The name most often in the headlines was that of Senator McCarthy. The upper house was making history in its vote to censure the junior Senator from Wisconsin. Housewives, businessmen, and teenagers alike turned their attention from Ma Perkins, the fights, and the Hit Parade to hear the ques- tions and replies of the investigating committee and the man being inves- tigated. This was the year that the Mambo hit the nation. HPapa Loves Mambo," and "Mambo Italiano" could be heard coming from almost every jukebox. Anyone who was anyone had to learn this dance from south of the border. As 1954. was an election year, November was quite a hectic month. The Democrats gained control of both the House of Representatives and Senate, leaving the nation wondering about how Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower would get along. Here in California, Goodwin J. Knight defeated Richard Graves for the Governorship, and the state remained Republican. It was a bad New Year's Day for the Pacific Coast football teams. Ohio State played the University of Southern California in the Rose Bowl and romped over the coast team quite soundly. In the East West Shriner game the west was defeated by a very small margin. Gas mask salesmen did a booming business as the public of Los Angeles became increasingly conscious of the smog threat in their city. No one was sure what caused this eye-watering, odoriferous, nuisance to cover up the blue sky, but plenty of people had theories as to refineries, factories, and automobile exhausts. The threat of the United States being dragged into the war between Nationalist and Communist China was alarming. The nation's anxiety was augmented by the development of new atomic weapons, in particular the atomic submarine, The Nautilus. Fortunately, a little man with a shy voice and a perfectly straight face crept into the living rooms of thousands of Americans to relieve the tension. George Gobel's uyou can't hardly find none of them no morel' pretty much sums up how we felt about this year 1954-1955.

Eliot once said, "Liberal education develops a sense of right, duty and honorg and more in the modern world, large business rests on rectitude and honor as well as on good judgment." Dr. Eliot was right in what he said, but it is my feeling that he did not go far enough. I believe that you, as graduating seniors, will find that small business as well as large business is founded on these principles. As a matter of fact, you will probably find that the Hgood lifef' is founded on these principles. My best advice to you, as you face a new phase of your life, is to practice well the principles of honor and rectitude in all your doings. You will find that this practice will reward you highly. On behalf of the entire staff of' Richmond Schools I wish you every success in all of your future endeavors. George D. Miner Superintendent of Schools I' 1- Judge Joe Martyn Turner Mr. Robert Collins Mr. Dana Murdock Mr. Manuel Mello Mr. Meredith Morgan DR. GEORGE D. MINER Dear Seniors: Footprints in the sands of time are unerasable. As you leave the halls of El Cerrito, I wonder if your footprints of deeds accom- plished and of standards set will be unerasable. It has not been easy for you to travel the path of learning to this point. There have been many side trails which have looked more inviting. There have been hills to climb . . . hills on which many of your footsteps have fal- tered. So, to those of you who have successfully by-passed these side trails and crested the hill of knowledge at El Cerrito High School, I bid you farewell, secure in the thought that the footprints that you are leaving will be guid- ing marks to successive students at El Cerrito High School.

Each club was placed into a class according to the activity of the sponsor, and the club and Student Association shared the expense. Also during this semester we held a Student Body Dance, had a Student Teacher Day, decided to have pom-pom girls during the football semester, and sent our yell leaders to C.O.P., where they won highest awards in leading cheers. The highlight of the semester was a Slave Day in which We not only raised enough money to pay the expenses of an exchange student but also to assist our choice of exchange on his trip to Europe this summer. . ,,.
