S ADMINISTRATION 0 Robert S. l-licks I THE PRlNCIPAL'S MESSAGE-This has been a most pleasant year tor all ot us. I am sure that this year book expresses and carries out that thought, My mes- sage is one ot gratitude. All ot you have been most considerate and wondertully co- operative. lt has been a great ioy to me to haye been associated with you this year in this mutually important enterprise, Gt all the loyely things which lite brings to us, nothing is tiner than the smiling, triendly greeting ot high school boys and, girls. Ot all the people in the world I would rather claim you as my friends, and trust that l may do so. lt is my earnest wish that Trail's End will present to you an interesting record ot your happiest days, a record which will not only remind you ot the past but one which will point the way to a successful, happy tuture. The title ot your book suggests the spirit ot the pioneer, That spirit, without gues- tion, is the tinest known in American his- tory, lt is surely worthy ot our emulation. As the American pioneer pushed ever out- ward into the unknown, meeting with courage and without complaint the many trying hardships along the way, so may you push torward into other unknown areas ot mental, social, and spiritual tasks. My best wishes are extended to each ot you as you go torth.

I THE OFFICE 0 Mrs Skylos 0 Mm, Recd 0 M125 PCC! 0 Miss Mrdwaels 0 Mass Beer I IN MEMORIAM-Some men live many years and accomplish little, others live here on this earth a comparatively short span ot time, and yet their attainments are both rich and bountitul A . . Richness, when measured by a true sense at relative values, is very seldom mere gold, Bountitullness goes hand in hand with true richness. Now that one ot our instructors is no longer with us, his very absence makes us realize that his service to us here in this high school and community was, in the greatest sense at the words, both rich and bountitul. This teacher, this sincere triend, lett his stamp on all ot us. We teel that having known him, our lives can't help but be tull- er and brighter. We know that his short stay with us has made this world a better place in which to live, and perhaps has given us a better understanding ot real, Christian living. It as much can one day be said ot you and me, we shall not have lived in vain, O P, l., Klingerman CLASSES I THE MID-YEAR CLASS O Elko Abe 0 Jornes Aikin I Eleonor Attrill 0 Williom Bisbee 0 Dole Brown 0 John Brown 0 Lo Veto Clentmer 0 Thedo Dicks O Merle Doiclge 0 lro Edmonds 0 Clittord Ellis 0 Louie lriye 0 lsomo Hozorno O Phyllis l-lollond 0 Robert Johnson O Fronklin Jordon 0 Dole lVlCCrurnrnen O Lloyd Meissenburg 0 Richord Moore O Kimiko Oto 0 Noro Polsky O Fronces Schoclq 0 Dorothy lvlortin 0 Phyllis Stiles 0 Stonley Weddle 0 Jeonne Wrensholl f , W W - ,,A ii :,. .Q X k 323 ,M I aw' 5 -G5 'ms I K I ,f 5 V, 11 ,-,, AWE . f 'J'QkWfb11-9? 4, L H , E, ? ., gn gig 4 'QP' , 2 'X y . 1 'sf 1' V Q ,Y fs 'vs fm 1 A 5 4 af V , O THE SENIOR A CLASS 0 Slrioe Abe 0 Jonn Alderson 0 Alice Aldndoe 0 Dorothy Anderson 0 Bernice Arnold 0 Doris Allwell 0 Eugene Attvvell 0 Wrllrs Boder 0 Virolnro Bolwrullw 0 Borboro Boldinger 0 Gus Borretf 0 Vlrglnio Beoton 0 Morgoret Beck 0 Lourence Bemoll 0 Lucille Benedict Y 512 1 9 z UQ, lk A y'. 4 Q x 924. 1 EH-W N1'i L, ,in Y?

Among the many talented and outstanding membera, "Red" Mc- Guire, Bob lVlacBeth, and Roen Flack, have been prominent in sports, while Margaret Dolan ll'1,l'N been tops among the girls, Notable in music have been Ruby Rentchler Walter Stevens, and Ethelyne Wil- kerson, The dramatic ability at Grace Wise, demongtrated in the leading romantic role in the 5eniar play, has been a credit ta the class, while Barbara Blue is known tor her scholarship. Q THE JUNIOR CLASS, under its efficient advisors, lvliss Kathryn lvliller and Mr. Paul l-ladley, has put forth tremendous efforts and successfully filled a year's program calling for much labor and thought The calendar opened on the evening of October 30, when this group and the seniors gave a delightful Hallowe'en Dance. This was followed by a dance sponsored by the juniors on December l l. On Friday evening, lvlarch l2, history was made when they pro- moted a highly successful skating party. On Wednesday, April Zi, that age-old institution, the Jitters, gave wav to the original Junior Follies, with two presentations, afternoon and evening. Tuesday, April 27, the entire school was startled at the appear- ance of some strange, freakish creatures on the campus, but breathed a sigh of relief when they were found to be only partici- pants of Junior Dress-up Day, And the envy of the school followed these scholars when they took advantage of their annual Ditch Day, Winding up such a successful year properly was no easy task, but the juniors did it, when on the evening of Friday, June ll, they treated the seniors to one of the most charming proms ELJ.l-l.Si has ever seen. ln addition to group activities many members of the class have gained individual glory for themselves in extra-curricular activ- ities. Among the "he-men" of sports we found Fred Rhode and l-larold Finney high in football, while Frank Ross and Laverne Miller were noteworthy basketballers, and Glenn Burt was promi- nent in track as a runner. ln music, Richard Beeks, Pat Mac- Aleese, and Elsie Starkenburg took honors, and in drama, Lorraine Peters, Rafael Galceran, Dorothy Vosberg, and Dorothea Reudy were prominent. Dorothea Reudy also served as art editor on the annual. To complete the list the following students, among others, merit mention for their scholarship: Lyle Glasser, Betty Kloos, and James Locy. The very able officers of the junior class were l-larold Finney, president, Lester Woodside, vice-president, Viona Rush, secre- tary, and Gordon Newton, yell leader. Undoubtedly much of the success of the class's activities is due to Corynne Cameron, chair- man of the dance committee, and Bill Clark, chairman of the skating party. Lu M D I- D u.

The Band started from scratch this years From a beginning small group it has grown steadily in numbers until it has reached an enrollment of approximately fifty members, During the early part of the school year only the simplest of band music could be used. The most difficult selections are novv played, as indicated by the presentation of reauired contest selections which have been approved by the National Band Masters' Association. Under the capable and faithful direction of Mr. l-larold Brovvn, the Band has made almost incredible progress this year, With the new, flashy, blue and vvhite uniforms no band makes a finer ap- pearing group, No one ever dreamed that our Band vvould enter the competitive field this year. lt went to Chino and took first place in marching and playing, and first place as the best appearing band. On May fifteenth it competed in the Southern California Championship Band Contest held in the Rose Bowl at Pasadena. Over fifty bands were entered and our l-ion's Band took part in the concert and marching contests and also entered several soloists. Another outstanding appearance was in our ovvn El Monte Pioneer Days' Celebration vvhen our group marched in the parade, in competition vvith several leading Southland bands. Another notable feature of the year's work of this organization vvas the initial presentation of the Annual l-lome Concert, and it is our prediction that this affair will each year become one of the school's anticipated musical events,-R, S, l-licks.

The subdued opponents were Monroyia, 1605, Excelsior U3-Tl and Jordan U3-Ol. The boys were in turn deteated by Montebello 1761 and by Bur- bank Q7-Ol in the game tor the league championship. The team was much better than the records would indicate.

Membership in this association entitles the Lion co-eds to several play-days, usually three, during the school year. The sponsorship of these play-days is a round-robin affair, each of the different schools in the league taking turns acting as host to the others. El Monte has been entertained this year by Covina l-ligh School, Montebello l-ligh School, and l.ong Beach Polytechnic l-ligh School. Next year El Monte will hold a Play-Day on its own campus. Between thirty and forty girls from our school have attended each play-day. ln order, therefore, to enable as many as possible to attend these affairs, different girls are selected each time, thus giving all the girls an opportunity to participate. By having var- ious color teams for the girls there is a better chance to meet the girls from adjoining schools. The G A. A. also sends representatives to the annual conference, the expenses for which are defrayed by a federation fee of two dollars per annum. To this annual conference each high school sends representatives. Lectures and small group discussions are held throughout the morning, and entertainment is provided for the girls in the afternoon. This year the conference was held at Santa Barbara, and El Monte was represented by Carolyne Newton and Dorothy Grisham, who were accompanied by Miss lrene Becker, girls' physical education in- structor. Every girl participating in a physical education class is an inac- tive member, she does not become a full-fledged member until she has earned points either in leadership or intra-mural competition. Under the auspices of the G. A. A., a tennis club was formed last semester, replacing the former league team. Girls who rank at the top of their physical education tennis classes are invited to come into the club. The vorious sports ore ployed otter school trorn three to tour o'clocl4 The girls hove their ovvn G A, A bus vvhich provides tronse portotion, Approximotely one hundred girls hove porticipdted in G.
