Mrs. Carolyn M. Keller and Mr. Harold Brown, who head the music organization of the school, have shaped their student musicians into orchestral units, choruses, and bands. Among these splendid groups are the Los Musicos Club, whose members furnish programs for both school and community affairs, the Girls' Chorus, whose outstanding achievement this year was a March concert, the Concert Orchestra, a group devoted to the fostering of classical musicg and the Lions' Band, which has won an outstanding place among institutions of Southern California. Throughout the year their sweet harmonies, their colorful presentations have enriched the lives of all on the E.U.H.S. campus. To the Music Department we dedicate this issue of the nineteen hundred and thirty- nine "Trail's End." "The song is ended, but the melody lingers on." ffl ADMINISTRATICDN A perTecTly uniTied sTudenT body is, in realiTy, an orchesTra learn- ing a composiTion ThaT is never compleTe, buT can always be improved upon. ln order To have cornpleTe harmony, There musT be a leader To mainTain a sTeady Tempo.

Characters: Two hundred and fifty bewildered freshmen with a new adventure ahead of them, one that they will never experience again. Buildings and rooms to locate-how can a freshman be expected to cope with this situation? But why worry about these dazed little people? The Lion's spirit has encompassed them. Scene II Time: The present, june, 1939. Place: The El Monte Campus. I ' H . Characters: The same bewildered freshmen, now grown to be wise, diglnihed seniors, who returned to school September 12, 1938, with the express purposelof getting some- where," accomplishing things, and heaping honors on old El Monte High. ' For the first semester, the duty of president fell to Earl Brooks, whohgained renown in his junior year as vice-president of the student body. Among other activities, he was a member of the Hi-Y, Voice Club, varsity football team, and president of the Lion Knights. Assisting him as vice-president was Alva Smith, member of the German Club, H1-Y, and Lion Knights, chairman of the leadership class. Alva was also very active in sports, as a trackman, and football player. ' n Secretary Verla Emmett was also junior class secretary, member of the Lwinlr Trail staff, and Sub-Deb Club. She was a very popular song-leader for two years. 'lreasurer Lois VVeston was a member of the Tri-Y, Scholarship Society, G.A.A., head of the Girls Science Club, and active in other organizations. The event that marked the beginning of second semester activities was the election of officers. The presidency was filled by Archie Dennison, who had participated in many school activities as a member of the dance committee, chairman of the leadership class, and an active ollicer of the Hi-Y and Lion Knights. Harry Lawder, basketball star, and member of the Lion Knights, became vice-presi- dent. Elected secretary was Dessie Richey. She was a member of the G.A.A., Tri-Y, and ticket committee. Assisting as second semester treasurer was Gwendolyn Lentz, who was active in the Spanish Club, junior Follies cast in her junior year, Girls' Science Club, and other clubs and committees. Saint Patrick's Day, March 17, created the atmosphere for the annual Irish Dance. Dick Moore and his orchestra furnished a well-rounded dance program in a green and white setting. ' Friday, April 28, was the scene of another senior frolic. This time, however, a Barn Dance provided a different theme. Everyone was attractively "farmy" in his or her old clothes. Light, smooth, music and fast "jitter-bug" jive was rendered by Ray Schultz' orchestra. "Spring Fever." What could be a more appropriate title for the june Senior Play? lt is a delightful, light comedy. The scene is laid in college, and the entire plot unfolds in the course of one day. The following were selected for roles: jack Crawford, Archie Dennison, Bill Grab, Marvin Schober, Bill Rohde, Helen Hildebrandt, Mary Wooten, Lorraine Lowell, Elaine Green, Dorothy Sims, Ruth Foote, Mary Hagerman, A. Shepherd, Kathryn Blue, Laurette Lovell, Katherine Walker, Stanley Long, Marvin Morales, and Earl Brooks. Miss Alice Wever double cast the play in order to give more students a chance to act. There were two evening performances, May 25 and May 26. The traditional Senior Prom was held Friday, june 2. Every spring the juniors put on a show, the junior Follies, to raise money for the prom they give the seniors. This year the prom was especially attractive, and since both the junior and senior classes were of a good size, it was well attended. The last week of school is always a busy one for seniors, and it is no diliferent for those.of El Monte. .Class Night, a favorite event of graduating classes, took place this year in the Columbia School Auditorium. An especially fine program was arranged. Frivolity must be-tempered with seriousness. That is a cue for the Baccalaureate, the purpose of whjch is to give the seniors encouragement for the future. A few words from older and wiser lips usually have a good effect upon young men and women. The last week was. climaxed by Commencement, Thursday, june l5. The ceremony took place in the evening on thle athletic field and was truly a beautiful spectacle. The speakers of the evening and their topics were as follows: Lois Weston, "Growth of Democracy", Earl Brooks, "Threats to Our Democratic Way of Life", Wynn Engle, "Education and Democracy", john Malneritch, "Civil Liberties", Agnes Shearer, "Wel- fare Clause in the Constitution", Archie Dennison, "The Pursuit of Happiness." All the luck and happiness in the world to the Senior Class of '39! 3 x 1 Q X r . . ,: W I PAA - . l Leona Janie Milton Ernest Masako Abacherle Adams Anderson Andrus Arakawa fi f Cb ,,: George leska , Mary Cecil Eleanor Asato If- sato Bader Barker Barnes if 33 A , QC? 1-Il: all A ' .. 2 - , as A 3 e V A oififafi A Philip ' A Betty Elizabeth Naomi Hash Baxter Beer Bellaver BCH N V 1 Pa l 46- 31-9- 321 'gfaf Viola Kathryn Virginia Florence Earl llevington lllue Hriano Brochez Brooks gui 3 ?

Last spring, 1938, they were juniors and took part in the junior Follies. As juniors also, they gave the Senior Prom in june. The Follies having been successful, the Prom, held at Oakmont Country' Club, was a grand allair. At the beginning of the spring semester, the senior "l2's" held their election of otlicers. lfirst, as president was Gordon Olsong jimmy Hashimoto was chosen vice-presi- dent, linola Cade, secretary, and Harriet Peck, treasurer. ln April, the class members, with the help of their advisor, Miss Ruth Smith, busied themselves and selected a sweater to symbolize their group. They chose a handsome one in the new "japonica" color, on the order of the brick tones. The seniors will thus have their sweaters ready for their entire final term in the fall of 1939. When the sweaters arrived, they celebrated by staging a picnic-party at the lil Monte Municipal Park. 'l'he winter class of 1940 will hold the largest mid-year commencement in the school's history, and its officers are already planning the many events of their farewell week. 4: 'RA J, ,- 9 FH, .

Q," f ti 41 ' .4V' TED CRAWEORD Secreiary Jun1or"B" IUNICDR CLASS HISTCDRY The success of any organization is due to the leadership. Throughout the past term the officers of the Class of 1940 have imparted enthusiasm, cooperation, and initiative to the group. The mid-year junior officers were Roland Phelps, president, Dick Manning, vice-president, Viva Roskelley, secretary, Marjorie Hicks, treasurer. Due to the large number of juniors, the summer class was divided into two divi- sions. Junior HA" officers were Kenneth Holtby, president, Viva Roskelley, vice-presi- dent, Mazie Petersen, secretary, Jeanne Roberts, treasurer. Junior "B" oliicers were Richard Jackson, president, Robert Polansky, vice-president, Don Garrett, secretary, Teddy Crawford, treasurer. A great share of the accomplishment of the junior class is due to the help of Miss Enger Hillix, Mrs. Ruth Calvert, and Mr. Gilbert Johnson, advisors. The ring committee should be commended for its splendid choice ot junior rings, which bear a lion's head in gold and "El Monte" mounted on black. This committee con- sisted of Joyce Albertson, Fred Davis, Mary Jane Dietrich, Russell McFann, Jane Macy, Jeanne Roberts, Vance Skarstedt, Bernice Wilkerson, and Wallace Campbell. Musical members of the class were Marjorie Garland, Ellen Harmon, Dale Plehn, Wallace Campbell, John Wylie, and Verne Rowe. High-stepping majorettes were Marion King, Mildred Green, Janice Bidwell, and Betty Rich, the head majorette. The song leader was June Davies. Honorable mention for athletic achievement goes to the following: Dick Manning, Fred Davis, Robert Hamblin, Kenneth Holtby, John Wylie, Don Garrett, George. Leb- recht, Robert Stanton, Jack MacBeth, Wallace Maxson, Frank Mills, Bob West, Richard Jackson, Richard Erbe, Lee Writer, Jess Parsons, Hiroshi Sentachi, Cal Shull. Outstanding girls who worked hard in G.A.A. were Shirle Applegate, Elsie Buchan, Ellen Harmon, Margie Hicks, Angie Ciocca, Shannon McEwen, Jane Macy, Mazie Petersen, Jeanne Roberts, Viva Roskelley, Doris and Dorothy Stanton, Peggy .Wepler, Wilma Shrimp, Beatrice Shrager, Beth Ellen Kelty, Betty Anderson, Marie Miali, and Phyllis Clabaugh. Those distinguished in art were Ross McCollu1n, Mary Jean Harmon, Mary Jean Die- trich, Violet Babst, and Jimmy Hashimoto. On the staff of the Lionfs Trail were Roma Bostwick, Betty Anderson, Lillian Scrog- gins, Jimmy Hashimoto, and Lee VVriter. The Junior Follies, the laugh riot of the season, proved to be a brilliant affair. Those who worked hard and diligently to make this occurrence a success were Vance Skarstedt, president, Marjorie Moody, vice-president, and Stella Martin, secretary. Other members of the committee were as follows: Betty Jeanne Anderson, Shirle Apple- gate, Marcia Drefson, Robert Grady, Jimmy Hashimoto, Margie Hicks, Ross McCollum, Roland Phelps, Dorothy Ross, Lillian Scroggins, Lee Writer, and Robert Wolstoncroft. Closing the season's activities in a whirl of sweet music and soft lights, lovely girls in equally lovely gowns waltzed with El Monte's most eligible young men at the elabo- rate Junior Prom, held June 2 at the Hotel Vista del Arroyo in Pasadena.

Al SCDPI-IGMCDRE Cl .ASS HISTORY Up to this year, the sophomores were just a "They'll be juniors next year" class. They had not acquired class spirit or assumed school responsibilities. The sophomores of this year, however, plunged into student affairs and amazed everyone with their class spirit. Under the expert leadership of Mr. Edward 0. Postdand Mrs. Gertrude Hess, the sophomores became a class to be relied upon for its pep and spirit. Led by Superintendent Robert S. Hicks, the sophomores began the school year with a combined pep rally and campaign meeting. lmmediately they began putting up signs that read, "Support Your Class," and at the football games they had a special rooting section. After a series of campaign speeches the following officers were elected: Pat Hillings, president, Don Garrett, vice-presidentg and Bette Rich, secretary-treasurer. The next important political function of the sophomores was that of selecting four representatives to the Student Court under the new constitution and choosing a new vice- president. The sophomore girls elected to the court were Pat Hawkins and Lynn lrelandg boys, Jimmie Morrison and Harvey Patterson. The new vice-presidency went to Terry StefaHlCl'1. By their enthusiasm and genuine interest in their class, the sophomores SOON gained the respect and admiration of the other students.

This well-established group has three main objectives: to form a democratic medium through which the girls of lil Monte High School may express their desires and ideals, to serve the school and community, as well as each girly and to create a clean, constructive organization that will give each girl a chance to grow into fine womanhood. The officers of this group are Elaine Green, presidentg Shannon Mclfwen, vice- president Ctirst semesterjg Angie Ciocca, vice-president tsecond semesterlg jane Macy, secretary, and Ruth Foote, treasurer. The creed of the League follows: "I believe in myself, my school, my country, and my God. l believe in loyalty to myself and my friends. l believe in cleanliness of mind, body and soul. l believe in helpfulness, honesty and friendship. Therefore, 1 pledge allegiance to the Girls' League and my school." This year the League sponsored a big sister, little sister organization. This enabled the freshman girls to become acquainted with the school and the student body more rapidly. Twelve advisors were chosen from the Council, and each advisor was in charge of Five big sisters from the Freshman Orientation classes and tive little sisters from the incoming freshmen. The idea was quite successful and will be continued in the future. Philanthropy plays an important part in the lives of the Council members, and they more than did their part this year. Several noon dances were sponsored to raise funds for Thanksgiving and Christmas welfare. At these dances the students were charged a small admission fee or a can of food. The food and money were in turn given to the Red Cross workers, who fixed attractive baskets for the needy. The social life of the girls was not lacking either. A "get-acquainted" party was held at the beginning of the year for the new co-eds, and a "hi-jinks" party in the cafeteria of the new school was another grand success. Moving pictures on educational subjects were shown during the year for the enjoyment of the student body and to raise funds for the treasury. The Girls' League Council, a vital part of a democratically governed high school, is growing better every year. ELAINE GREEN SHANNON Mc.EWEN p,,,5d,,,, First Vice-Pruudenr l .

" "'u, Earl Hrooks Hill Grab lt is the duty of the Lion Knight organization to make this school a better institu- tion for the faculty and students. The members of this service club are daily around the campus watching the activities of students, reminding them of school rules, and encouraging good behavior. Other drives are sponsored by this organization furthering higher student standards and the good appearance of the school grounds. This group is also responsible for the artistic stickers displayed on car windshields around town. Occasionally a pupil breaks a rule and is brought before the student court. This court is composed of the Knights and class representatives. After the offender has been given a voice in his own behalf, the court decides on the seriousness of his offence and determines his punishment. This court remedies many cases which would otherwise become serious and need to be dealt with by the administration. The Lion Knights have enjoyed numerous social activities also this year. These have consisted of mountain trips, feeds, and initiations. The Knights are training a group of boys, known as Lion Squires, who will till their places next year. ln this way they have been able to advise and show their successors the best ways to be of service to the school. Throughout the year joint meetings :have been held with the Squires, affording a chance for relation and discussion between the clubs. The Lion Knight organization was started in this school in 1934 under the advisor- ship of IS. L. liergstrom, vice-principal, and has remained a beneficial service club. This year's advisor, Mr. l'aul Hadley, and the Knights have worked successfully together in accomplishing their many objectives.

So states the preamble of the constitution of the service brganization. The Lion- esses are recognized by their black and white herringbone jackets with red emblems, as well as by their pins. The duties assigned to the members are many and various. They have taken their share of patrolling the school grounds, definitely established a firm girls' court, assisted Miss Margaret Crosby with the individual problems of the girls: and, above all, have helped every new girl to feel at home and get acquainted so that she might find her place in the school society. The Lionesses are chosen because they are interested and want to help their fellow classmates. The members of the Lioness Club have many requirements to meet. First of all, they must submit themes telling why they want to be Lionesses. The list of girls wish- ing to enter is then submitted to the faculty for approval. Their citizenship record must be good, and their grades must consist of at least two recommended grades, with no mark less than a "C," They are then voted upon by the other members. The society consists of fifteen juniors and seniors. The Lionesses have been very active this year. They have had night meetings at the homes of various girls once every other week. They have ushered at various affairs, sold pickles at football games, taken educational trips, and have had several parties, such as their kid party, "progressive" dinner, and the snow party with the Lion Knights. Likewise in connection with the Lion Knights, they held a carnival in the gym to raise money for service work. First semester officers were Mary Hagerman, presidentg Ardis James, vice-president 3 Janie Adams, secretary, and Shannon McEwen, treasurer. Second semester leaders were Ardis james, president, Doris Farmer, vice-president, Angie Ciocca, secretary, Jean Dale, treasurer. 5' 6 rl, Q AFQDIS JAMES D DQRIS FARMER ANGIE CIOCCA JEAN DALE Vice-President First Semester Vlcc-President Second Semester Secretary Second Semester Treasurer Second Semester President Second Semester , VIVA ROSKELLEY .ku J FLORENCE MECH EM .:"fq1."V"E.'.'l 'Ei ra I. PEGGY FOSTER MARJORIE HICKS :yas DOROTHY LENZ 'D RUTH FOOTE 0-my rw -- VIRGINIA BRIANO ELAINE GREE C LIQNS BAND xym. Dr The lil Monte Union High School Senior lland, under the direction of Mr. Harold Ili-own, has again proved its worth to the school. The seventy-piece organization played in public approximately thirty times during the year. ln addition to the usual types of band instruments, saxaphones, clarinets, trombones, cornets, drums, and French horns, this year, through the courtesy of the board and Super- intendent llicks, a front bell baritone, a front bell recording alto, and a trombonium were obtained. Special features, such as drum majors, drum majorettes, choir singers, and song leaders, played an important part in the success of the band. Joe Hawkins and Ralph Rankin served as drum majors, while Bette Rich, Marion King, Mildred Green, Patricia Hawkins, Janice llidwell and lleverly Marsheck were the competent and attractive major- ettes. As feature there was a band choir composed of Dorothy Garland, lllarjorie Garland, Maxine Terry, Helen Phelps, Joyce Dodson, Shirley Gibbs, Gertrude liwan, Dorothy Lenz and June Morgan. And finally, there were the song leaders who did much to boost the enthusiasm of the students. 'llhese girls were Verla Emmett, Louise lfllsworth, Jacqueline Ruedy, June Davies and Shirley VVilson. 'l'his organization has been actively engaged many times during the school year and has done exceedingly well, playing in parades, band benefits, assemblies, and making an outstanding appearance at the Los Angeles County Fair. ln the band contest in Pasadena the Lions won two first places out of a possible three. They received first place, superior rating, in the required- National Marching Contestg hrst place, superior rating, in the stunt routine, and second place, excellent rating, in the contest selections. Probably the occasions' which the members most enjoyed playing for were El Monte games, where they very willingly provided music for an enthusiastic student body. 'llhe Senior lland has contributed its services throughout the year, not only to the school, but to the community as well, with a reputation for unfailing support whenever asked for it. lt has given to the school "pep" that could be given in no other way and made li. U. H. S. a better institution to attend. Next year the band will have new practice quarters. In addition to a large rehearsal room, there will be adequate storage space for band instruments and costumes, and several individual instrument practice rooms. A fine year is anticipated for the band in 1939-40. CCMMERCIAL ORCHESTRA The El Monte Union High School Los Musicos Club, started in 1936, has been acclaimed one of the outstanding organizations in the school. The members play for assembly programs, community musical affairs, exchange school programs, local bene- fits, and school dances. The objectives of this group are to train boys and girls vocation- ally, that is, to play in dance bands and for entertainment, and to use popular music as a medium to interest boys and girls in the music program of the school. The club is led and directed by capable Mr. Harold Brown, who not only does the directory work for the orchestra but gives much of his time to instructing each mem- ber individually. President Dorothy Garland, pianist, is a very excellent all-around artist, equally capa- ble as a dance musician, accompanist, and rehearsal pianist. Another outstanding mem- ber is Hrinley Bethel, guitarist and fine arranger, who also plays the cornet, baritone, and saxophone. Verne Rowe, prominent cornet player, is also 'an arranger. A feature of the commercial orchestra this year has been the work of the Los Musicos Choir, which has performed well in concert and radio.

I it "7 ig:.::ff il ' - U i f w, ' o - ill ,Jiv- W0 QF Concert Grohestra The Rosemead P.-T.A., September 29, first requested the services of the Concert Orchestra-this year. The muted tones "Let All My Life Be Music," by Spross, drifted over the audience as the curtains- drew apart and revealed the striking picture of the young musicians. Also included in the first semester's activities were the P.-T.A. Reception at the new school on October 25 and the graduation, Janury 26. During the first few weeks of schoolithe group elected Dorothy Garland president, supported by Pat Hawkins, vice- president, and Bob West, treasurer, the director is the popular music instructor, Mr. Harold Iirown. As the year advanced with steady, serious practice, their performances became more in demand. In the latter half of the year the orchestra was kept busy as the students performed on Student Activity Demonstration Day, March 9, at the Rose- mead and San Gabriel Valley Music Lovers' Reciprocity Day, April 26, open house at the new school, April 27, and finally the Second Annual Spring Concert, May 17, in the Civic Auditorium, when refreshments were served to musicians and guests.The outstand- ing students are Dorothy Garland, Dorothy Lenz, Nona Donaldson, and Mildred Sum- merhays, who represent the graduating class, and Bob Chorneau from the sophomore class. Of the compositions played, those liked best by both the musicians and the audience were Brahm's "Waltz in D," 1'-lalousie" by Jacob Cade, "Persian Market" by Albert W. Kctelbey, and Paderewski's "Minuet in G," which is Mr. Robert S. Hicks' favorite com- position played by the orchestra this year. Boys' and Girls' Choir The Boys and Girls' Choir was organized by students interested in group singing and eager to learn more about professional work in the field. Anxious to better them- selves, they set as their goals for the year the learning of part-music, the most important vocal principles of singing, and the postures necessary in good workp The group, under the direction of Mrs. Carolyn Keller, music instructor, was pre- pared by long hours of practice for the concert, which was given on the evening of May 11, at the Civic Auditorium, in honor of the graduating class. U The Lyric Trio, which has given pleasing numbers at many affairs this year, is a part of this choir. Miss Betty Evans, promising young singer, is also a member of .the group. Ofiicers for the year have been Frank Geske, presidentg Cyril Brierley, vice- presidentg and Fredda Davis, secretary. i . The Boys and Girls' Choir has shown much promise in its program work during the past term, and much can be expected from it in cultural contributions to the extracur- ricular experience of lil Monte Union High School during the year 1939-40. .Q Cappella Choir Among the many musical organizations of the school is the promising A Cappella Choir, whose student officers for the year were Thyrle Ellsworth, presidentg Betty Mun- ger, vice-presidentg Kimoko Kadota, secretary-treasurer, and Marjorie Shandy, manager. 'l'hey are putting much time and effort into their work, endeavoring to do finished choral singing. Within this group is a very popular Lyric Trio of girls which has made itself familiar by participating in many of the school and outside activities, such as the concerts on March 3 and May ll. They have been well received in churches, at clubs, and in schools where they have sung. The entire choir worked long and hard on its part of the concert given in honor of this year's graduating class. One of the group's main objectives is to make it possible for the students in the high school to hear good music performed in a finished style by students of the school. V -.

If P5 11 Q' I 5 , -s Y 1' r-Y "Tl 2' Q Q Boys' Chorus The members of the Boys' Chorus are taking the work as an elective subject, because they desire to learn part-music, vocal principles, correct posture, friendliness, and good manners. The boys formed a trio and a quintet for public appearances, the latter singing in concert on May ll. Early in the second semester the whole chorus sang for the director of music at Chaffee Junior College and made a fine impression. The boys' activities have been few, because they have spent their time in developing their voices for next year's performance work, rather than in building programs for the public. Mrs. Carolyn Keller, music instructor, stated that she was very proud of the boys' accomplishments. "When the boys first started in the class," Mrs. Keller said, "they sounded fiat and they could not carry a melody. At the end of the year they had devel- oped their voices until they could not only carry a melody but read notes and sing part- music." Officers for the first semester were james Quinn, president, Hiroshi Sentachi, secretary, and Winfield Hope, manager. Second semester officers were Bud Burkman, president, Keith Webb, vice-president, and Hiroshi Sentachi, secretary. Eunice Mikesell, comely senior co-ed, was the accompanist for the boys. Girls' Chorus Appearing in attractive uniforms of white skirts and blouses with sheer blue scarfs, the talented Girls' Chorus has been prominent in school activities this term. They began the year by electing the following officers: Olive LaComb, president, Barbara McGul- pin, vice-president, Barbara Hoehn, secretary-treasurer, Mildred Adams, manager, Helen Dunn, librarian. All performed their duties well, guiding the group successfully through the concerts of March 3 and May 11. Like most musical organizations, the girls are striving for perfection in their work, and they have gone far on the difficult road toward their ultimate goal. This has been affirmed by the high praise of many cultured people of note. The young ladies were requested to sing on the radio, and it was considered that they even excelled the chorus from the Glendale High School. Their outstanding activity this year was participating in the fine graduation concert. With people so enthu- siastic over their work, it is not at all difficult to imagine their possible brilliant future. Radio! Concert! Honor! Girls and Boys' Chorus The enthusiasm of the Girls' and Boys' Chorus is a great asset for the future. The group has not yet had the opportunity to perform before an audience, but has made fine progress in its musicianship. Barbara Bryant was elected president, Patsy Swan, vice-president, Betty Jane Saka- moto, secretary-treasurer, Carol May Gage, manager, and Peggy O'Neil, librarian. This year there were only two boys in the organization, but a larger membership is anticipated. Luster Reid, one of the members who has ambition for his group, organized a quartet at his home. So greatly interested in their work are these students that they have improved until they feel confident of their ability to do radio work. Next y-ear the chorus is expected to add much to the musical reputation of El Monte High School. 1..- ig! , i X . a ', . --fa W ' Firsl Row: Flood, Openshaw, Powell, Hope, Senlachi, Rohde., A Back Row: Wesf, Webb, Giannelll, Rydell, Smith, Norton, Quinn, Schlappl, Casedy, Wilhife.

Voice Club l Under the able guidance of their instructor, Mrs, Carolyn Keller, members of the Voice Club are moving their organization into a position of prominence in the extra- curricular activities of the school. j Student teachers, Earl Brooks, Betty Evans, and Dolores Kamm, were chosen to aid in the leadership of .this organization. These pupils helped to instruct and guide the members in their activities. Harmony.in four parts was chosen as a major study. The choral group worked out several unique arrangements of waltz arias from the light opera "Carmina" and a beautiful arrangement of the classic, "Would God I Were a Tender Apple Blossom," by Percy Grainger. Opera, motion pictures, and radio are the goals set by members of the Voice Club. Very promising .talent was displayed in their work at school. Several past members of the club have gained success in music, and no doubt many more will join them. The purposes ofhthe Voice Club are to present assemblies for the school, to form a better student appreciation of music, and to aid those pupils who wish to gain musical recognition. I Officers for the first semester were Archie Dennison, presidentg john Wylie, viceipresldenti and 1309111 M8y0,, secretary. Second semester officers were Earl Brooks, president, john Wylie, vice4pres1dent, and Eileen Dickenson, secretary. Scholarship Society This year El Monte Chapter 114 of the California Scholarship Federation has .been a small but active group. The intellectuals started the year, November 19, when they jour- neyed to radio station KNX. After inspecting the studio, the group went to Griffith Planetarium and lunched at Griliith Park. "A Comparison of High School Clubs" was the subject of the iirst forum, which was held in the cafeteria on the new campus, with members of the Monrovia scholastic group in attendance. Doughnuts and cider were served after the several panel discussions. Representatives of the society attended the annual C. S. F. Regional Convention held at the Long Beach Polytechnic High School, May 6. At that time visiting scholars attended discussion groups on topics of current issues. Meetings of the C. S. F. have been carried on in the rooms of their popular advisors, Mr. Henry DeGaris and Miss Robbie Hopkins. Officers for the first semester were John Malneritch, president, Kenneth Holtby, vice-president, Ruth Foote, publicity secretaryg and Viva Roskelley, recording secretary. Second semester officers were jimmy Lefiier, president, Vance Skarstedt, vice-presidentg Ruth Foote, secretary-treasurer, and Helen jancan, publicity secretary. A Lion Squires Organized a year ago as a supplementing club for the Lion Knights, a senior group, the Lion Squires have progressed considerably this year. Their constant cooperation with the above group has been a distinguishing trait of merit. During the term they have set new and higher grade requirements for theirmembers. A great many have participated in school government and have been recognized for their ability in that capacity. Originally the members were voted in by the Lion Knights. This system, however, was changed. The present plan is to have the junior boys assist in selecting their own members. It is claimed that this idea is more efiicient and reliable. Keeping pace with their club duties, the social affairs have included evening meet- ings with the Lion Knights, and an initiation dinner given by the latter in the early part of the school year. Another interesting activity was the trip to the Los Angeles playground at Big Pines during the snow season. Later, the group enjoyed a swim at the Pasadena Y. M. C. A. Officers for the first term were Earle Shaw, president, jimmy Hashimoto, vice- president 3 Russell McFann, secretary, and jess Parsons, sergeant-at-arms. The second half found Russell McFann as presidentg Vance Skarstedt,vice-president3 Don Garrett, secretary 5 and jim Hurst, sergeant-at-arms. ffl Y 5 . in ,,.

The group functioned as a social unit for all French students and was reorganized this year under Mr. Paul Hadley's direction. Every organization should and usually does have an objective in mind. So it is with the French Club. Learning French culture was the main point toward which the mem- bers strived. Harry Fuhs, who had visited in France, gave interesting accounts of his life there. His knowledge of the language was of great assistance to those for whom it was difficult to understand. The group also attended a showing of the French movie "Mayerling" at Pasadena junior College. Wtih the election of officers marking the beginning of the year's activities, meetings were held twice a month. Chosen president was Thomas Quirk, with Wynn Engle assisting as vice-president, and Doris Stanton, secretary-treasurer. The week after Christmas vacation, a picnic was held at Sarah Macardian's ranch home. Before darkness fell, games were played, and then a bonfire was built. The gathering was broken up early, as school had to be attended the following day. A supper at Dick Boucher's in May terminated the year's outings for the French Club. Spanish Club Los Montafieros, the Spanish Club of El Monte Union High School, has for one of its objectives the development of a feeling of mutual understanding and friendliness among Spanish and English students in the school. It was organized eight years ago to foster an interest in Spanish and to enable members to become acquainted with other stu- dents of the language. To be a member of this organization, a student must have at least a "B" rating in his First year of Spanish. The group had a Mexican dinner and initiation on March 9 at the home of their advisor, Miss Isabel Dinsmoor. The membership was increased by twelve at this affair, bringing the total number to thirty-one. Los Montarieros members enjoyed several Span- ish plays at Padua Hills, visited a tamale factory, and staged a picnic at Montebello Park. The officers for the first semester were Kathryn Blue, president, Martha Jane His- song, vice-president, and Maude Cooper, secretary-treasurer. Second semester ofiicers were Barbara Merrifield, presidentg Richard Erbe, vice-president, Betty Anderson, treas- urerg and Audrey Mangis, secretary. German Club Organized this year by the students of the first, second, and third year classes, the German Club members had the intention of bettering their knowledge of practical German by reading German and English Literature. In hopes of learning more about the people and country, they viewed two motion pictures at the Continental Theatre in Los Angeles. Among other things, the group asked Mr. Paul Hadley, language teacher and sponsor of the club, to read to them the book "Inside Europe," by John Gunther, which further acquainted them with European affairs. For relaxation, the club held an old-fashioned American Wiener roast. Another great American institution which they patronized was the roller skating rink, when they held a party in May. ln order to carry out their full program it was necessary for the officers to keep constantly alert. Responsible for the direction of this organization were ofiicers june Bull, president, Jacqueline Ruedy, secretary, and Eunice Stagis, treasurer. The German Club seems to have accomplished all it set out to do this year, and in doing so has found more interest in class work. .53 'ak , lv 46 W ,Q SX is '5 -8 E 7 u 4'1Tg"- U 1 ii ,JI whiz 1' 6 " .-X V Q 22 9 3 L . , , . - ' X ' . 4 ' I F ,:'71,4.1'-' '- . ,, 4 hg 0:4415 " Is' 5 I nfl: rhg, , 'ls -f?':.Z'- N ., Y ' 1 5:5 x "flu f' I, I v - I V V I 1 I K 'QQLG' .5 if gill! Latin Club Sauntering up to the open door of the Latin room, the hesitant boy peered in, only to behold on the front board an outline of what was to be learned in the Latin course. "Oh, woe is me! What have I gotten myself into now F" were the thoughts which ran through his head. The nervous chap was soon calmed down, however, when the teacher explained everything. "And you may even be eligible to become a member of the Latin Club if you make an 'A' or 'B' in the course," the teacher concluded. When he received his card, a great sigh of relief was- heard, and he left the room repeating, "Veni, vidi, vici!" How true it had been in his case! Now he could become a member of the club. He would have to suffer the initiation, but it would be worth the ordeal to attend the annual banquet, help with the club's booth at the Lioness and Lion Knight Carnival, and perform other such activities. He even cast his vote for the officers of the semester who were as follows: Viva Roskellev, presi- dentg Doris Stanton, vice-presidentg Peggy Foster, secretary-treasurer, Anna Bader, reporter. Mrs. Ruth Calvert, Mrs-. Augusta Bortin, and Mr. Paul Hadley, sponsors, received a great deal of thanks from the group. Home Economics Club "What's nice to wear and what's good to eat." This might be the motto of the Home Economics Club, judging from its accomplishments under the able sponsorship of Mrs. Fva vi. Spencer and Miss Helen C. Nelson, sewing and cooking instructors. The Home Economics Club members have been very active this year. At the beginning of the term the organization held a Hallowe'en party in the sewing room, at which five new members were initiated. During Christmas week the girls made cookies and candies which were sold with a net profit of Sl4.00. This sum was given to charity. The club later had a Valentine party at which new officers were chosen. The members have enjoyed a theater party at the Pasadena Playhouse, sponsored and presented a fashion show at the junior Follies, enjoyed a swimming party at Long Beach, a picnic in the El Monte Park, and staged several teas for seniors and the faculty. Ofiicers for the first semester were Eleanor Barnes, presidentg Phyllis Franklin, vice- presidentg and jean Tellkamp, secretary-treasurer. The second semester officers were Phyllis Franklin, presidentg Billie Donn, vice- presidentg and Frances Romano, secretary-treasurer. Nursing Club With the beginn-ing of this school year, a new Nursing Club was organized under the able guidance of the school nurse, Miss Gladys Daniels. She was assisted by june Bull, president, Florence Mechem, vice-presidentg june Gordon, treasurer, and Martha Jane Hissong, secretary. The members of this- group learned practical home nursing: what to do for scratches, burns, bumps, and how to make a hospital bed. The enthusiasm of the members brought their grades up to a "B" average, thus giving every girl the privilege of enrolling in a Home Nursing course if she so wished. This club has not been formed for social reasons, but in the hope of learning much useful information about vocational nursing. To prove this, the members- have gone into a home to care for an invalid, made notebooks and also their own first-aid kits. Other activities have included an interesting visit to the General Hospital in Los Angeles, a pot-luck dinner held at Miss Daniels' home, and attendance at a lecture given at the Red Cross convention. For its first year, this young organization has been very active and is expected to be an exceptional, service rendering club in the future. ,aw-' 1 H1-Y ,J What else but "clean speech, clean sports, clean scholarship and clean life" could be the motto of the Hi-Y, one of the school's oldest, best known, and most representative organizations. The purpose of the club is "to create, mainfnin, and extend throughout school and community high standards of Christian living." A' h. The membership of this group is thirty-eight, including Mr. William Duncan, spon- sor. A prospective member must be voted in unanimously and must undergo a rigid ritual comparable to that of Middle Age knights before he can be formally admitted. lnitialions occur twice a year. Suppers are held on an average of once in every three weeks, with regular meetings each Monday evening. Among the many activities of the Hi-Y have been several trips, such as the annual club beach party, bowling at Pomona, and swimming at Pasadena. Also very enjoyable have been several social affairs with the Tri-Y as co-sponsors, including a beach party and a dinner dance. Officers for the first semester were Rex Welch, president, Frank Ross, vice-presi- dentg and Clifford Brown, secretary-treasurer. Second semester officers were Richard Lawin, presidentg Johnnie Wylie, vice-president, and Clifford Brown, secretary-treasurer. lunior Hi-Y Newly organized this year for the benefit of freshman and sophomore boys, the junior Hi-Y has been very active under the advisorship of Mr. Brooks Thompson. The first purpose of the club is to acquaint the boys with "Y" work and ideals, and to prepare them for membership in the Senior Hi-Y. One day out of the year an informal initiation is held, and the new members, dressed in ragged shorts and other worn clothes, carry vegetables around their necks and submit to various other indignities. As leaders, the boys chose Gordon Wright, president, William Stem, vice-president, Arnold Salisbury, secretary-treasurer, and Glen Hendrick, sergeant-at-arms. The junior Hi-Y boys were active in service to the school, taking a prominent part in the clean-up campaign and handling the ticket sale for the league track meet. They also helped the students daily in guarding the parking lots and performing similar functions. Regular meetings were held, and frequent bean and spaghetti suppers were attrac- tions to the young members. Future Farmers of Emerica The F.F.A. was organized in 1936 for ambitious farmers and horticulturists of El Monte Union High School. Some of the underlying purposes of this club are "to develop competent, aggressive, rural and agricultural leaders, to create more interest in the intelligent choice of farming occupations, to improve the rural home and its surroundings." This organization is primarily to supplement the regular instruction offered to students of vocational educa- tion and to stimulate interest in agriculture throughout the school. The Future Farmers have at present about thirty-five members. They are encour- aged in every way to enter crop and livestock specimens at fairs and shows. Among their numerous projects they have built an F.F.A. Hall of Fame, a greenhouse for growing many varieties of plants. Officers for the first semester were Kenneth Shaver, presidentg Charles Steele, vice- presidentg Yoneji Kishimoto, secretaryg Farrow Yano, treasurer, and Thad Brown, reporter. Second semester cabinet was composed of Charles Steele, presidentg john Griffin, vice-president, Tom Cahoe, secretary-treasurer, Fred Archer, reporter, and Ken- neth Shaver, farm watchdog. Advisor for the year was Mr. Elvin M. Douglass, capable new instructor in farm mechanics. M. , '-1 1 I 5 -lu A A " ul 'C f 'v 3 Q l 4,1 15 'F J , I sfwv - me .1 Y 5 C' - ' .

Tri-Y Beginning their activities early in September, the Tri-Y, under the student leadership of Ruth Foote, sent penny postcards and three-cent stamps to Olive View Sanitarium. On November 1 the girls had their induction ceremony for the junior Tri-Y, newly organized this year. Miss Foote was not alone in presiding over the group. Miss Kathe- rine Bandy, popular girls' gym teacher, was the advisor, and Laurette Lovell served as vice-president this year. Club activities were skillfully recorded by Jeanne Roberts, sec- retary, while the finances were well cared for by Dorothy Stanton, treasurer. During the month of December, the girls put their philanthropic objectives into action and sent domestic gifts to the Ruth Home. They drew 310.00 from the treasury and .spent it for two needy families. On December 21 a delightful dinner party at Clifton's Cafeteria was arranged, at which time the girls exchanged Christmas gifts. In February the Tri-Y inducted five new members. "Brother Rat" was a subject of great importance long talked about before and after the girls went to see the play at the Pasadena Community Playhouse. The last Tuesday of March, the club was hostess to the visiting Arcadia Tri-Y girls. There was a program, after which refreshments were served. During April the girls were busy stuffing cloth animals which were given to the Children's Hospital. In the late spring the Tri-Y and Hi-Y Clubs held a very successful dinner dance. It is not diliicult to see the advantages of such a service club in the school. lunior Tri-Y With twenty-five members, the Junior Tri-Y was started for the purpose of acquaint- ing younger girls with the activities and duties of the senior organization. They began the year-'s activities with an apple sale to obtain money for charity. The event was so successful that the girls were again requested to sell apples. A substantial amount was raised and spent in welfare work. Another commendable act of the organi- zation was the making of picture books for crippled children in a hospital. Several parties were enjoyed by the girls, the most eventful being a skating event which was- attended by all the members. The club also sent representatives to the Tri-Y Convention held at Ventura in' April. The officers were as follows: first semester-Olive La Comb, president, Alta Beaston, vice-president, Frances Tucker, secretaryg and Florence Berlin, treasurerg second semes- ter--Olive La Comb, presidentg Lorena Staben, vice-president, Frances Tucker, secretary, and Shirley Clair, treasurer. Much credit and thanks should be given to Miss Ruth Smith, advisor, for the fine activities of the Junior Tri-Y. Sub-Debs Personality-the elusive charm which everyone hopes to gain-has been the main topic of discussion among the E. U. H. S. Sub-Debs during the past year. This society was started three years ago to meet a definite need among the co-eds. Its purpose has been to study the value of poise, personality, and charm, how to acquire and how to apply them to best advantage. Several meetings were held, at which a charity help was plannedby the group- Frequent n oon get-togethers were called so that the girls could have a chance to eat with friends and talk over current topics of interest around the campus. Christmas-time charity help was planned by the group, and it was decided that parties should- be held regularly at the homes of members of the organization, honoring all those having birth- days during each month. The objectives are to obtain pleasure through accepted behavior, to improve personal appearance, and to learn the value of personality and charm. Arrangement-s were made for noon gatherings at which booklets edited by Elizabeth Woodward, sponsor of Sub- Deb Clubs all over the world, were read. Mary Wooten, popular senior, acted as president of this group. Other offices were held by Martha Jane Hissong, secretary, and Laurette Lovell, treasurer. Mrs. Inez Puckett McEwen was the active advisor. Due thanks should go to Dorothea Ruedy, class of '38, who is now studying art at L. A. City College. She originated the Sub-Debs in El Monte three years ago and ofiiciated as president for two successive vears. Yffxw " wb- ,Q ' c G E2 5.

Beth Phenix, the art editor, has been assisted by Mary Jean Harmon, president of the staff. Miss Ruth Mahoney, art instructor, is the sponsor of the group. The art work in the annual was done in pencil in the modernistic trend, with music as the theme. Cartoons accompanied the calendar and were scattered throughout the book. These were cleverly drawn by Rex Welch and Ross McCollum. Other outstanding artists of the group are Alyce Bruce, Doris Bell, George Reese, and Margaret Carlson. The art staff cooperated with the editorial division and worked steadily toward making the 1939 annual the best that El Monte has published. Hrt Club Putting their drawing boards, brushes, paints, and smocks aside, the Art Club this year turned to enjoy many social activities. Under Beth Phenix, talented art.student, as president, Marjory Moody, vice-president, Mary Ross, secretaryg and Miss Ruth Mahoney, resourceful art instructor, the group found many interesting and enjoyable things to do. Always a favorite spot was Miss Mahoney's pleasant home in Pasadena, where sev- eral pot-luck dinners were held. Other successful dinners and evenings of play were enjoyed at the home of Alyce Bruce. Even though they came home with many a bruise and scratch from an evening of roller skating at the Hollywood Roller Bowl, all reported a thoroughly enjoyable evening. During the year the group decided upon decorative pins and found pleasure in an afternoon and evening at Olvera Street. In addition to their many other activities, they began an attractive memory book. Original in form, it is a large wooden volume containing a l1st'of the members and pictures, programs, and tickets gathered from the various places visited. Wmninq Class Under the enthusiastic leadership of Mrs. Edith Irwin, prominent faculty member, and Nadine Finke, sophomore, each member of the third hour practical mathematics class purchased an annual. When the sale began, the group took inventory and found that a majority of pupils were interested in working toward the award. Inspiring talks, given by Donna Lawrence, kept the group alert and responsive. Miss Finke checked daily on the latest purchases of the group and otherwise kept close account with the teacher. As a result of this, the class completed the buying of annuals in record time and won the sales contest sponsored by the Annual Publications. Mrs. Irwin stated, "It was a very enjoyable and happy experience to work with such a cooperative and loyal Class." The winning members were William Allum, Moses Arredondo, Bob Cleland, Harry Church, Robert Conklin, Robert Dewitt, Virginia Dowman, Candelario Esparaza, Beverly Farris, Nadine Finke, George Hamblin, Lee Harris, Ray Holzfus, Edward juris, Steve Litwin, Kenneth McCollum, Arthur Mondy, Dale Rummens, .lake Santar, Fred Smith, Howard Smith, Elvin Staben, Shirley Thomas, Laymon Weddle, Ruth Workman, Man- uel Lara, Beverly Sweeney, Fred Cheney-, Audrey Emlet, and Larry Shimamura.

Any girl in labora- tory science classes acquiring college recommended grades is eligible for membership in the club. The active girls gave an initiation party the first semester in Santa Anita Canyon with the traditional onions and "worms" that made the six neophytes cringe in discom- fort. Beans, salad, iced tea, and cake were served before the ceremony took place. An interesting trip for the girls was an excursion to Arden Dairy, where they were served large, cold glasses of milk, and shown about the plant. The second semester initiation of neophytes took place in Mr. Lester lVlcNichols' room at the new school campus. The fourteen new members gave .the1r.l1fe hlSI0l'y, spoke on impromptu subjects, and dissected grasshoppers. After the initiation program the girls devoured sandwiches, hot cocoa, cookies, and peanuts. The Boys and Girls' Science Clubs spent one-half day at. Cal Tech viewing many scientific accomplishments which the young men in the university described. Trips to Grifiith Park Observatory, the Huntington Library, the County Jail, the beach, the Times Building, and a movie studio were also in the club's calendar for the year. The officers for the first semester were Martha Jane Hissong, presidentg Laurette Lovell, vice-presidentg and Lois Weston, secretary-treasurer. Second semester ofiicers were Lois Weston, president, Mary Floyd, vice-presidentg and Virginia Briano, secretary- treasurer. Mr. Lester McNichols is the sponsor of this scientific group of girls. .Qstronomy Club The Astronomy Club is a group of scientifically minded boys who are interested in the wonders of the s-pheres. Under the direction of Mr. Chester Holsopple, sponsor, four members of the group did a good deal of work in the grinding of telescope lenses from 8 inches in diameter down. Among those patient grinders were Jack Hoult, Norman Morein, Ray Smith, and Robert Whitaker. Also, Mr. Holsopple was working on a 6-inch lens. Soon after organizing the club, the members and their sponsor took a trip to Mount Wilson. Conducted by john Hickox, supervisor, they enjoyed an excursion through the observatory. Among the instruments inspected by the group were the seismograph, 60- inch telescope, and the caleosphere. They also journeyed to Griffith Park, where they viewed the Planetarium and all of its attractions. The club's ambition is a trip this August to Palomar to view the new 200-inch telescope and to record the meteor showers. lapanese Club Membership in the Lions -I. C. is not compulsory, but any Japanese student who cares to join may do so. The objectives of the club are to become better acquainted with the students and to help others, to assume civic responsibilities, and to promote higher scholarship. , The japanese Club has had many lovely parties and entertainments this year. This ' ctive organization gave a colorful Christmas party in the El Monte Union High School gymnasium, a skating party at the Lincoln Park Skating Rink, enjoyed a movie at the local theatre, and traveled to the beach where the members frolicked, ate, and swam. This society also was host at a beautiful party for the graduating seniors. They sponsored three highly successful dances in the high school gymnasium and gave an attractive skit at the Columbia School Auditorium. All the Japanese clubs in the San Gabriel Valley joined with the local group for a friendly meeting which was held near the end of the second semester. Officers for the first semester were Robert Kinoshita, presidentg Kiyoko Kawamura, vice-presidentg Emiko Watanabe, secretaryg and Tad Uriu, treasurer. Second semester offices were held by Robert Kinoshita, president, Tad Uriu, vice-presidentg Emiko Nishi- mura, recording secretary, Emiko Watanabe, corresponding secretaryg and Fred Iriye, treasurer. Miss Mamie Sharp, well-known civics and senior problems instructor, is the sponsor of this fine, ambitious group. OO!- Q. ' ' ' . . , V A .Q Sri! -, Q ' QFWE Q 'K 1 . 'mlg,Z- . .,. wg. . I.

They are "to study and learn the principles of photography, to help supply pictures for the annual, to furnish a source of entertainment for each indi- vidual who belongs to this group." Many interesting activities .have been enjoyed by these amateur camera fans during the past year.. A number of hikes were planned for the purpose of supplying subjects of photographic interest. After each outing the members submitted their best "shots" for competition with their fellow free lancers. Appropriate compensation was awarded the winner of each of these salons. Each student is required to own a camera and understand the fundamentals of developing and printing pictures. Average scholastic and citizenship records are also determining factors for admission into the club. Unnecessary absence from three con- secutive. meetings, failure to pay weekly dues, or disorderly conduct furnish grounds for suspension. Earl Young, president, has conducted weekly meetings on Wednesdays in Room 7 on the old campus. Other ofiicers have been Taylor Hamilton, vice-president, and Jim Park, spicretary-treasurer. Miss june Beebe, popular girls' science instructor, is the active faculty a visor. A Because of the high requirements, a limited membership has been maintained this year. Flying Lions In order to be a member of the Flying Lions, a boy must be able to fly his model airplane for thirty seconds, to have an airship available once a month, and to maintain an active interest in the work of the organization. Throughout the year the club has been represented at various meets, where both gas and rubber band models have competed. Usually about fifty planes are available for such contests. This number, naturally, varies according to "crack-ups." Social affairs have included a swimming party at the Pasadena Y. M. C. A. and a movie at the Rose- mead Theater. "Model airplane building is- one of the fastest growing hobbies in the world. The members of the Flying Lions wish to perpetuate this movement for the advancement of aviation. Many of us anticipate going into technical phases of aviation later in life," stated Arthur Millier, leader of the group. Officers have been Arthur Millier, president, and Sigmund Caswell, vice-president. The sponsor of the organization is Mr. Arthur Edmonds. Public Hddress Club Under the leadership of Mr. Max Ireland, the Public Address Club has been one of the most active organizations in the school. The main purpose of the club, as the name signifies, is to install and operate the public address or loud speaker system. lt is also the desire of this club to learn how some of the more important electrical devices function. This group was first organized this year although several of the members had been operating the system for some time. Forming a constitution and devising a plan by which the work was equally distributed among the members were but two of the many accomplishments of this club. It has been of great assistance to the school by cooperating in all dances, programs, football games, and other events. Many additions to the public address system, including the purchase of a new microphone, have been made this year. Regular meetings are held weekly in order to plan the activities of the group. During several of these meetings there have been talks by authoritative persons on the operation of the loud speaker system. To become a member of this club a person must be making "C's" or better in all his subjects and be able to work both at night and during school time. The officers for the past year have been Dean Wright, presidentg Don Garrett, vice- prcsidentg RobertMacKnight, secretary, and Clifford lirown, sergeant-at-arms.

Mr. ltutler is the head bus driver and a respected member of the high school staff. Cafeteria 'l'he lfl Monte Union High School Cafeteria is under the able management of Mrs. Della Harmon. Assisting Mrs. Harmon are Mesdames Louise Salisbury, who has charge of the sandwiches, Gladys l'arkhurst, Florence Davis and l':lT1lY'l1i Stever. 'lll10SC Cfllflwli women prepare and serve all the food that is eaten by the hungry students who populate the lil Monte l'nion High School campus. The cafeteria student-help consists of twelve assisting students who sell sandwiches, candy, and ice-cream, prepare malts. and help in the washing of dishes after the noon hour is over. Although at times the cafeteria seems unimportant, it is a mainstay of life on the school campus: and the management makes its function at pleasant one for all concerned. l YA. P'-sf.

The success of this, El Monte's fourth yearbook, is due chiefly to the cooperation and harmony with which the various departments have functioned. These divisions consist of three units: the editorial, art, and business staffs. The ed-itorial section, headed by the Editor-in-Chief, Charles Dellinger, and Associate Editor, Wynn Engle, includes Betty Beer, Lillian Scroggins, Betty Anderson, Wilma Cook, Eleanor Barnes, Marjorie Hicks, Ruth Foote, Elaine Green, james Otsuka, Stella Martin, Ilob Wol- stoncroft, jane Macy, Earl Young, Russell McFann, Vance Skarstedt, Marjorie Moody, llob Polansky, Florence Brochez, Mary jean Harmon, and john Malneritch. No less in importance are the art and business departments. This year's Art Editor, lieth Phenix, and advisor, Miss Ruth Mahoney, led a competent and creative group of staff artists. After the theme of the edition was chosen, the art department had the task of applying it to the pages. This job gave an opportunity for individual ideas and sketches. Individual members of the art class designed pictures for the division pages. Since this year's theme is music, the division pages carry through the idea of harmony and orchestration. Mrs. Clara C. Hollowell advises the other two staffs on money matters, and helps them to spend to the best advantage. She has been ably assisted this year by the following members of her classes: Shirley Berry, Viola Bevington, Elaine Brugere, Ray Fox, Vivienne Gullick, Sakae Kaita, Lucile Lindsey, Pride McFerran, Dessie Richie, Norma Robinson, Betty Lee Springer, jean Tillcamp, Lee Writer, and Martha Stem. Previously, the editorial staff has consisted chiefly of graduating seniors. This year, however, in preparation for forthcoming publications, several junior classmen have taken an active part in arranging and editing the material for the book. Variety plays a great part in the enjoyment to be received from life. And so it is with an annual. It would be scarcely worth the time and effort devoted each year to make this edition a success if it were not varied in some waysx This year a new printing method is being employed. lt is by name, lithography. This type eliminates the expensive process of engraving, thereby reducing the cost of production. Because of this, more pictures can be used in the book. The club presidents and athletic leaders have indi- vidual shots which permit the readers to recognize them more easily. Even though lithography is less expensive, it is no less effective, and gives an effect of shading impos- sible with engraving. The Senior Hall of Fame is a new feature of TRAIL,S END, in which the outstanding members of the graduating class are pictured. The selection was made on the basis of significant achievements in their respective fields. Another growing section is the one devoted to Candid Camera. Any student in school had an opportunity to have his informal photograph in the book. To Mrs. Hollowell, Miss Mahoney, and Mr. Hadley, who so successfully advised their staffs, and to those who contributed to the annual in countless other ways, TRAIL'S END extends its sincere thanks.

Y paper has just terminated its most successful year in five volumes of publication. Accurate and up-to-the-minute news for four types of readers: the students, the faculty, the alumni, and parents is the aim of the school paper as it is- published through- out the school months. The motto of the Lionlr Trail is "Individual Reward for Individual Merit," a slogan suggested by Superintendent Robert S. Hicks. The editorial policy of the paper has always been to serve as a medium of expression for the student body and faculty, to uphold, promote, and carry out the honored traditions of El Monte Union High School, to foster real school spirit, to influence students' thought and opinion, to promote good scholarship, to encourage and support clean sportsmanshipg to foster worthy activities, and to give honor where honor is due. Under the guidance and instruction of Mrs. Inez Puckett McEwen, approximately fifteen "cubs" were taught journalistic writing this year. Those who were dependable, neat with their copy, always on time for deadline, and recommended in grades, will make up the staff to carry on the paper next year. The advanced group, Journalism II, which composed this year's staff, did an excellent job and turned out a first rate paper. Arnold Weitschat, editor, and Robert Kinoshita, associate editor, worked well in their respective fields. Ruth Foote receives a special compliment for her faithful and untiring work as star reporter. Other "newshounds" deserving credit are Ardis James, Katherine Blue, Verla Emmett, Betty Anderson, Lillian Scroggins, and James Hashimoto. First year students who worked hard and enthusiastically as "cubs" and who proved especially promising are Pat Grady, Ross McCollum, Anna Bader, Stella Martin, Eugene johnson, Evan Adams, Elma Balaz, Helen -Iancan, Bob Wolstoncroft, and Roland Phelps. Among the special features presented in the Li0n's Trail this year was "Pointed Paragraphs," a column furnished each week by the superintendent. It might be added that, although Mr. Hicks is the busiest man in the school, he never once failed to meet deadline with his copy. Another popular feature was "Meet the Faculty," a series of articles presenting the pictures and general background of new teachers on the E. U. H. S. staff. Many interesting cuts and pictures supplemented the news articles run during the past two semesters. Every good school paper sponsors a few campaigns. Among the "worthy campus causes" backed and abetted by Lion'.r Trail were efforts to keep the campus clean, to solve the problem of cheating, and to develop pride in and a proper attitude toward the new school, its building and equipment. To Editor Weitschat, his toiling staff, and the printer, G. R. Graham of the Rose- mvad Review, the student body says, "Thanks for nine school months of interesting and worthwhile reading in Lion's Trail." Chosen as the new editor-in-chief is Robert Kinoshita, this year's efficient associate editor. m1en,1T-.f,.- ... C THE LA TRAIL Volume Five, Number Twenty-six Wednesday. M07 3. 1939.

Back Row: Wolstoncroltl Otsuka, Lindel. 'llhe Writers' Club organized this year with an express purpose-to encourage and create a greater urge of selt'-expression for future literary greats of lil Monte Lnton High School. A new thing in the history of the Writers' Club was the lnspiration of the Month, suggested by Miss Ilertha Lindel, club advisor, and published by the members of the club. 'l'his is a monthly edition of the article which seems most inspirational and original. Among the tirst publications were "Pioneer Heart" by Angela Skinner, "The Ordeals of a High School Freshman" by Coralie Anderson, and "The Reason" by Mollie Combs. Other inspirations issued were those of Jacqueline Smith, Sarah Wiley, jackie McDer- mott, and Shirley Smith. 'l'hc writers were entertained this year at the home of Miss Lindel 3 other recreations enjoyed by them were hot-dog feeds, picnics, and hikes. lfach year since the club began, an annual publication called Ink Illotx has been published by the writers with essays, poetry, short stories, and other types of literature chosen front the talents of the students. 'llhis year Ink lflotx, under lfditor VVolston- croft, Associate lfditor Otsuka and a slatl' from the club, was issued in a special edition of the "l.ion's 'l'rail" in May. .lathes Ulslllsil. lFl'C5l4lClll1 Robert VVolstoncroft, vice-presidentg and jackie McDer- mott, secretary, were othcers for the two semesters. BUSINESS STAFF i . Front Row: Kaita, Yamashino, Kido, Richey, McFero-an, Springer. Back Row: Wriier. Tellkamp, Gullick, Berry, Bevingfon, Lindsey, Fox. The business staff, under the able direction of Mrs. C. C. Hollowell, has completed the most successful year sin-ce its organization. Lee VVriter as business manager, and the staff of Shirley Berry, Viola Hevington Elaine llrugere, Roy Fox, Vivian Gullick, Sakae Kaita, Shizuye Kido, Lucile Lindsey, Pride Mclferran, Dessie Richey, Norma Robinson, lletty Lee Springer, jean Tellkamp, Fukiko Yamashina, and Martha Stem were responsible for the finances of the Lionli Trail and the Traifs End. The contracts for the annual were given to the Standard Lithographing Company, Anderson's Photo Shop, and the Henderson Cover Company. A familiar sight around the campus was the cameraman taking pictures of classes, clubs, organizations, and ath- letics, even making candid camera shots of the students. Some of the staff meet the business men, talk with them, and sell them advertising space in the school paper, others do the typing of actual business letters which they send out all over Southern California. Some keep a set of books pertaining to the newspaper and the annual, while still others file papers, run errands and arrange the ads as they come in from the salesmen. Special credit goes to Pride Mclierran and Lucile Lindsey for their untiring service after school hours as bookkeepers and to Lee VVriter for his excellent work as manager. The editorial .staffs of the school paper and animal take this opportunity to say "thank you" for service well rendered.

NVright, a man of uniinpeachable character and distinguished appear- ance, will be long remembered by us, even after his retirement from active service in our high school at the end of this year. He has been in the teaching profession for over fifty-one years, having begun at the age of 17. Twenty-eight years of loyal service have been given to lil Monte Union High School in the capacity of teacherg for many years he also served as Vice-l'rincipal and director of student organizations. His interest in our athletics caused him to give many hours in connection therewith, having served as official time-keeper at many games. "The methods of teaching have changed a great deal in the last half century," says the stately mathematics professor. "A teacher of today must be aware of new trends but not susceptible to the fads which appear in school work as in other professions." 'fOne last little message to my young friends: Seek refinement and usefulnessg deny selfishness and keep your conscience clear at every turn. Life will then be filled with deep satisfaction, which is much more than mere pleasure." Such is the parting counsel of El Monte's much respected instructor. Dean of All.

This year Miss Eoma Clemans had charge of the group. Since the majority of club members were freshmen, the work was much harder to perfect. As a result, the girls had no opportunity for public appearances. Group marching and timing were entirely new to these young ladies, and they should be congratulated upon the fine spirit which they put forth. Costumes are of the traditional school colors, blue and white, with white hose and regulation tennis shoes. The girls make a very effective picture on the gridiron. The requirements for membership are ability to march, good posture, and a sense of rhythm. These three points work into one grand total, cooperation, which begins from the first moment of drilling until perfection is attained. Additional recognition should go to the five charming majorettes, Georgia Riggins, Roma Bostwick, Marilee Heath, Audrey Parrick, and Roberta Green. Together with Miss Clemans they worked as leaders for the main body. Under their instruction the co-eds learned signals, how to form letters, and how to counter march. Officers are as follows: Betty Beer, president, Betty Anderson, vice-presidentg and Roma Bostwick, secretary-treasurer. Cheer Leaders This year's cheering section was under the leadership of "Richie" Harris, head yell-leader, and Richard Jackson, assistant. According to the new constitution adopted by the Student Body, the boys chosen for this honor must "conduct rooting sections at all athletic contests, arouse and control enthusiasm before athletic contests and other school activities, and be responsible for decorations at all athletic contests." The boys led the student body in yells at all football contests and pep assemblies. They also participated in exchange assemblies with neighboring schools. As candidates for this office they tried out before a freshman assembly and were selected by the student body officers. Mrs. Elizabeth Daniels, the able advisor for this group, was in charge. Earl Shaw, prominent junior, was appointed commissioner of yells to serve on the Executive Commission. Song Leaders Swinging gaily to the blue and white rhythm of excited Lion grandstands, four pretty girls toss their pom-poms and perform clever maneuvers with the band, adding flash, color and action. As file leaders for the Lion's Band, the girls make a very striking appearance marching in their smart drill uniforms of blue skirts and white sweaters or pigskin slacks and blue sweaters. The head song-leader this year has been Verla Emmett marching at right guide and wearing corporal stripes. June Davies, Louise Ellsworth and Jacqueline Ruedy were selected from a large group of applicants by Mr. Harold Brown, instructor of the band. The girls must appear at every performance and are awarded chenile letters if their work is satisfactoryg however, the letters can be taken away if their conduct is in unbe- coming to their position. The song-leaders show in clever routines at games and assemblies-and in February and September they teach the new freshmen the school songs. With the band, they participate in national contests, conventions, and in exchange programs with other schools.

K Jacqueline Ruedy june Davies Varsitv Football Starting the year with two new coaches, Bill Duncan, formerly of Whittier, anc "Chuck" Williams of U. S. C., the varsity football team had a good season, emerging vic- torious from three out of its five league games. Football season opened with a night practice game against the Alhambra Moors The Moors won the game with some difficulty by a score of 12-0. After this the Lionf were handed a third period defeat by a hard hitting Pomona eleven: score, 19-13. The main feature of this game was a 64-yard touchdown run made by Dick Manning. Next the El Monte moleskinners met defeat to the tune of 27-0 at the hands of Whittier The boys began the league season with a smashing 32-O victory over the Pasadena Bulldogs, who appeared very weak before the strong Lion onslaught. Next in line were the Montebello Oilers who were determined to avenge their 18 previous defeats at the hands of El Monte. The clash proved the Lions the stronger, by a tally of 13-0. The Lions under the leadership of La Verne Miller, showed superior strength and beat Burbank by a score of 18-0. El Monte met Covina to determine the Championship but the Colts finished ahead 7-0. Somewhat shaken the Lions met Monrovia and ended the game with a scoreless tie. Captain Bill Robertson was given a berth on the C. I. F. team. Honorable mention went to Laymon Waddle, Joe Haygood, and Richard Browning. HB" Football The story of El Monte's l938 Class "B" football season is one of games hard ant well played but lost. The Lions tied for the cellar position in the league, but were neve' outclassed or badly defeated. Coach Shannon of the champion Monrovia "B's" statec that El Mon-te was the toughest team his boys met this year. The season's opener with Alhambra showed the boys, under the leadership of Cap tain Mike Galvin, outplaying their opponents by 19 first downs to 1, but failing to out score them in a game that ended 0-0. During the next two weeks the "B's" won easilj from Puente, 33-0, and lost to Fullerton, 12-0, in a contest which was marred by injuries Then began the league season. With five first string men out, the Lions lost to Pasa- dena, 6-0. They played a scoreless tie with Montebello and came out on the short enc of a 12-0 score at Burbank. The next week a game was arranged with Cathedral whicl was won easily 14-0. The last two games were the real heartbreakers of the season. In both contest: El Monte scored first, only to have Covina and then Monrovia come back to win, Covina by 7-6 and Monrovia by 14-6. El Monte's team placed two men on the all-league eleven, Eugene Redd at end, anc Yodomi Okumura at fullback. There were also other men who played consistently gooc football. NC" Football El Monte's invincible "C's", coached by Lester McNichols, played through an unde- feated season. Starting with a tie game they came back and defeated Bonita in a second contest by a score of 6-0. One team after another fell under the mighty "C" juggernaut. Some of the schools played were Puente, 12-03 Covina, 13-6, Loyola, 21-6, Brea, 12-6. Climaxing a very successful season, the "C's" scored 65 points to their opponents'18. With Louis Tusing, aerial artistg Captain Dick Miyakawa, kicker, and Jimmie Mori- son, center, as a nucleus, a formidable team was built. Other mighty midgets were Tad lfriu, a long distance ball-packerg Shig Moramisato, line plungerg Bill Barnes, end run- nerg and Marvin Morales, blocking-half. On the line Harvey Patterson, guardg Ed Stock- ton, tackle, and Dick Boucher, center, were outstanding. A great deal of the team's success can be attributed to the large number of reserves. ln mid-season there were live full teamsg and during games the team was strengthened by its many substitutes. Many of the boys possess outstanding talent and have shown that within the next few years they will be First class varsity material. There were several with great individual ability, but teamwork was paramount both in practice and in games, indicating that the boys were willing to work together. This trait will make them a valuable asset to any team.

The Lions scored a total of 454 points to their opponents' 389. Puente and Excelsior were downed by scores of 28-15 and 29-18 in the first practice games of the season. After gliding to victories over P. J. C. and Montebello, Monte met its first league defeat at the hands of Burbank, then came back strong to win from the Mon- rovia squad a week later. Next, the Lions went to Arizona to participate in a tournament. Meeting Colton junior College and Tucson High School, they came home after defeating the former and losing to the latter. Covina, Monrovia, and P. C. were the next victims on Monte's list. Then every- thing went wrong, with Montebello, Burbank, and Monrovia crushing the Lions' title hopes in the last league games. Eugene Redd, "B" man playing varsity, proved to be the high point maker with 84 digits, while Manning, Ross, and Miller were next with 56, 55, and 54 respectively. McGee rang up only 23 points, but his great passing and defensive work made him a valuable team member. The Lions proved themselves great on fast-breaking plays with perfect coordination, and were a credit to the coaching of "Bill" Duncan in his first year at El Monte. "B" Basketball Deserted by Lady Luck, the Monte "B" basketball squad went through an unsuccess- ful schedule this year. Playing four practice games to start the season, the Lions lost to Compton, Puente, and Chino, but defeated the Excelsior Pilots 23 to 21. For their first league contest the home squad took on Pasadena in a night game. The Bulldog showed his teeth and conquered the Lion 34-27. Montebello came number two in the list of "Valley" foes. Monte put up a good fight, but was finally beafen in the last half. Playing in another "after dark" game the local boys dropped a close one to the Burbank Bulldogs. The next two league tussles were with Covina. The Lions came out second best both times by the narrow margins of two and three points. Then the Monrovia Wildcat showed much unfriendliness for a first cousin by downing the Lion five. Trying to make up for their first defeat, the home boys worked hard and cut down l'asadena's victory margin to 4 points in their second meeting. Montebello, Burbank, and Monrovia were close behind in wreaking their vengeance on the weakened- Lion, near the close of the season. In spite of their defeats the "B" team had many fine scorers. Hiroshi Sentachi, star forward, was top man in seven of the games, scoring 91 points. This was more than twice as much as the total of his nearest rival. Second in line was Richie Harris, who ran up 44 points. Dick "Speed" Browning played third with 37. Fourth place was tied for by two valuable players, Gordon Olson and Cal Shull. Each scored 36 times. Coach for the lightweights was "Chuck" Williams, one of the best-liked teachers in the school. He came from the University of Southern California, where he played end and was captain on the football team. "C" Basketball The energetic lightweight team proved to be the best basketball squad on the E. U. H. S. Campus this year. They dropped only two games during an entire season. To Puente fell the lot of being the first to suffer defeat at the hands of this scrappy Lion quintet. Next came Excelsior, Bonita, and Whittier in that order. The Whittier contest was one of those never-to-be-forgotten frays, with the locals eking out a three- point win in the last minute of play. With but two days' practice after Christmas vacation a slightly stuffed Class "C" team journeyed eastward again to defeat a worthy Puente aggregation. Then came Mon- rovia, Bonita, and a return game with Monrovia's "Kitties" Louis Tusing, El Monte's star forward, garnered 22 points in the second Monrovia game. ln the next game a visiting Covina team handed the boys their first set-back of the season to the tune of 8 points. Two days later a high-spirited Lion team headed for Covina, bound on revenge, and, after a last-minute drive, netted a three-point victory. A set-back at the hands of Glendale closed the highly successful season of this powerful lightweight squad. The outstanding players were, defensively-Adams fcaptainj, Morrison, offensively -Tusing, Davis. -ci-'IT - u -ff FirstRow: Bowman, Erickson.

HD" Basketball Coach Lester McNichols is given the credit for turning out a successful class "D" team. VVith 5 games won and 3 lost, the total scoring was 149-116. The team defeated Puente in the first game of the season then lost to Whittier. The run of bad luck con- tinued and they were beatenntwice by Bonita, with the scores of 18-27 and 13-14. Recov- ering their stride, thei'D's trimmed Puente and from then on took the rest of the teams in order. Freshman Carl Powell was high-point man- for the season with 96 points. Powell incidentally broke Louis Tusing's old record for points scored in one game by ringing up 23 points against Covina. Qther lettermen of this fine "D" team were lighting Teddy Yano, forward, Rilly Davis and Louis Sakamoto, centers, Ed Shuler and Irvine Katz, guards. Although the boys had no league, they played strong teams throughout Southern California. They fought hard and would have had a good chance for a championship. The team gained invaluable experience, and during the next 3 or 4 years of basketball should be an organization of which the school will be proud. Varsity Tennis Under the excellent coaching of Mr. Paul Hadley and the captainship of Richard Harris, the varsity tennis team made a good record, considering that only four lettermen returned to help form the foundation for this year's team. The varsity played such teams as Pomona, Excelsior, Citrus, and South Pasadena. They defeated those already mentioned, tying South Pasadena. The team was defeated by Alhambra, Whittier, Chaffey, and the Webb School for Boys. The doubles department this season was well supported by Richard Erbe and Dean lfsse, and Hob Franklin and Richard Harris. Erbe and Esse formed an excellent doubles team, and it is expected that in the future they will carry the name of El Monte High far in league and tournament competition. Franklin and Harris, the only seniors on the team, were a very dangerous pair, forming a unique combination against any doubles team trying a march to victory. Representing El Monte in the singles field were such tennis men as hard-smashing Taylor Hamilton and cool, scientific Dwight Hahn. Kenneth Holtby, Lee Writer, and Cal Shull also had the lighting caliber needed on a varsity line-up. While they were not a championship team, the boys fought hard, and even under adverse conditions managed to pile up a good record. During the entire season they showed the snap and spirit that makes a fine varsity. Since most of them are no more than juniors, they will have at least one more year of tennis. With the experience gained this year, they should form the nucleus of a team with championship possibilities. " xx ll P IDN 'W B Tennis Tennis, the sport with probably the greatest lasting value, has attracted more fellows at lil Monte this year than ever before. From a total of forty-five candidates, Coach Paul Hadley built up a junior vars-ity that had excellent chances for the League cham- pionship. El Monte Union High School was well represented in class "B" doubles competi- tion by Russell and Wanlass, Hamblin and Harvey, and Garrett and Crawford. In singles the Lions had Eugene Johnson at first position, Neil George, Captain Allan Brown, Max Morelock, Douglas Scott, and Don Waddell. Others in competition were Hahn, Davis, Millier, Anderson, Reese, Malneritch, Cox, Cottingham, Lennefelt, and Hollingsworth. Russell and Wanlass reached the semi-finals in the C.I.F. tournament, while Ham- blin, Harvey, johnson, and George also made a good showing. In practice matches the team defeated South Pasadena, Whittier, and Citrus junior varsities and Puente and Citrus varsity squads, losing only to a strong Alhambra aggregation. Almost all of the boys have a possible two or three more years of tennis, and they have already demonstrated both the spirit and ability that goes into the making of out- standing teams. In the future when they become varsity players they will form the key- stone of a team with chances of a League or even Southern California championship.

The squad, one of the smallest in the League, had a few men who could do themselves proud in any school. Considering the season from the standpoint of improvement, one can only come to the conclusion that the boys have really worked. Flake Morrison, running the 440 for the first year, developed into the fastest quarter-miler El Monte has seen. In the League meet he took second with the time of 51.7, which compares quite favorably with the school record of 52.3. In the shot-put Hugh McCracken increased his puts from 35 feet to 43' 11". At the beginning of the season Bill Erickson could pole vault only 8 feet. In the League meet he placed at the altitude of 11 feet. Much credit for the boys' improvement is due to Coach H. Lynn Nearpass. Don Edmunds proved himself a consistently good man in the low hurdles. Milton Anderson did likewise in the 220. Bob Graves and Joe Gomez placed third and fourth, respectively, in the mile at the League meet. This year the best varsity track man, Carol Haygood, was also captain of his team. He broke the school high jump record with a leap of 6' 94" and took second place in the League meet. He also excelled in the hop, step, and jump. "B" Track The El Monte "B" track team, like true sons of mercury, became champions of their division in the San Gabriel Valley League track schedule. Under the coaching of Mr. H. Lynn Nearpass, the locals were favored to go far in Southern California and state com- petition. The team, which is probably the best El Monte has ever seen, easily defeated its rivals in the League meet. Scores were as follows: El Monte, 503 Montebello, 183 P. J. C., 173 Covina, 12 5f6g Monrovia, UM, Burbank, I0 2f3. ' The squad showed great talent and broke myriads of records. The relay team, con- sisting of Richard Browning, Dick Shove, Dick Manning, and Curtis Groom, made a spectacular showing by breaking eight records in eight starts. jack Waddell, "B" pole vaulter, set another record in his 11-foot leap. Representing El Monte in the 220-yard dash were Wall, Manning, Shove, and Groom, each breaking the previous record of 23.4 seconds by the time of 22.6, 22.8, 22.8, and 22.9, respectively. Richard Browning, who already held an impressive array of records, made two more when he set up new times of 9.9 seconds in the 100-yard dash and 24.4 in the 220-yard low hurdles. Breaking the school record and tying the League mark in the 70-yard high hurdles, Richard jackson showed that he had true winged feet by making the time of 9.5. Captain Carmine Terracciano took a record himself when he threw the 10-pound shot a distance of 47 feet. Not content with an already magnificent showing, the "B" team captured the broad jump record through Wall's fine performance. Jackson and Nelson, both good trackmen, tied the high jump record with leaps of 5' 8" and showed promise of breaking it soon. "C" Track El Monte's mighty "C" team added to its list of accomplishments the lightweight track championship of San Gabriel Valley. After defeating all opposition in dual meets, the boys came out victorious in the final league meet, with a score of 38M to their nearest conipetitor's ISM. On this year's team were many stars who showed brilliantly at all encounters. Takoa lde, local Hash, tied the record for the 50-yard dash in 5.8 seconds. George Lelirecht, captain, another constant winner, succeeded in lowering the 660-yard time from l:33.9 to l:30.4. This boy has splendid promise and will surely show in next year's "B" squad. Louis 'l'using, specializing in the high jump, managed to hop over 5' 8260, for a new school record. He also put the shot 46' SPM", thereby setting another new school record. Three-time breaker of the broad jump record was Larry Shimamura, finally leaping 19' 92", . Also victorious was the "C" relay team, composed of Powell, Barton, Cockshutt, and Ide. It can readily be seen from these records and victories that the "C" team had a successful season. Ably coaching the lightweights was Mr. Lynn Nearpass who showed them the essentials of track. Coach Nearpass was assisted by Mr. "Chuck" Williams. The best teamwork of all the track squads was shown by these boys. Cooperation is what makes a team successful and these boys had plenty. This year's "C" manager was George Kinoshita, who was able to keep everything in order. The following are some of the "C" boys and their events: 100-yard dash, Bar- ton, Powell, and Cockshuttg 50-yard dash, Ide, Moromisato, and Kinoshitag low hurdles, Bull and Dennisong 660-yard run, LeBrechtg high jump, Tusing and Guerrerog broad jump, Shimimura, Sakamoto, and Ideg pole vault, Shimamura and Brianog shot-put, Tusing, Cooley, and Hashimotog relay, Barton, Powell, Cockshutt, and Ide.

Since the league was small, each school was met twice. Wrestling The wrestling team under the able direction of Don Baetisinger, a special coach from Whittier College, made a splendid showing this year. The boys did well as individuals, but due to the lack of outstanding heavyweights they didn't fare so well as a team. The local fellows made their first appearance on the mats against Whittier College. The invading team went home victorious by a score of 21 to 16. The next meet was with the highly regarded Chaffey Junior College wrestlers. The Lions' put up a noble fight but were defeated by a small margin. Next the El Monte boys invaded the Sherman Indian Institute and Fullerton Junior College. Here thevl met stiff opposition from slightly stronger teams- VVith high individual hopes, the local matsters went to San Diego to participate in the C.l.F. finals. Here the boys made a fine showing. Last year the team took third place in this meet. The team was made up of the following boys: 95 lbs 105 lbs . class-Sakatoni . class-B. Morales, Rummens 115 lbs class-Rhoads, R.

Council "This association shall be to develop physical efficiency, to encourage interest in ath- letic activities, to promote good sportsmanship and a spirit of cooperation and fellowship." The above statement is the purpose of the G. A. A. as written in their constitution. This document, the first of its kind at El Monte, was drawn up by Shannon McEwen, Angie Ciocca, and Viva Roskelley, council members. Officers of the council have been Jacqueline Ruedy, president, Dessie Richey, vice- president, and Angie Ciocca, secretary-treasurer. Managers of the different sports' were Shannon McEwen, hockey, Shirle Applegate, volleyball, Viva Roskelley, basketball, Elsie Buchan, speedball, Wilcla Mae George, tennis, Alma Sievers, yell-leader, and Bette VValker, baseball. Candidates for offices are nominated by the Executive Board and are voted upon by the association at large. President and vice-president must have been members of the G. A. A. executive council for at least one semester, and must be seniors or juniors. Yearly the association is invited to attend one or more play-days. This year Whit- tier High School and Pasadena Junior College asked for the presence of the local girls, who sent seventy-nine representatives to the contests. At the annual Girlsf Athletic Federation conference, held at Beverly Hills High, la. lf. S. sent Jacqueline Ruedy, Viva Roskelley, Elsie Buchan, Angie Ciocca, and Mrs. Elizabeth Daniels, advisor. This year's. program as changed under the new instructors was a great success. lt is hoped that it will be even more successful next season. Basketball For two consecutive years basketball has ranked highest in G. A. A. sports. And so this year, as before, it has been well received by an overwhelming majority of the girls. ln order to be a competitor in this sport a girl must be skillful, alert and accurate. These are only three of the many qualities a girl must have to be on the first team. The junior-senior championship game, most exciting of the tournament play-offs, ended in a 22-20 victory for the seniors. Juanita Moody, captain and center of the fourth year team, was supported by Dessie Richey, center, Elizabeth Bellaver, forward, Elaine Brugere, forward, Shizuye Kido, guard, Jackie Ruedy, guard, and substitute Mildred Summerhays, forward. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors who deserve recognition for their line work are Peggy O'C0nnor, Martha Stagis, Alma Sievers, Jane Mueller, Angie Ciocca, Phyllis Clabaugh, Thelma Monroe, Kathryn Todd, Viva Roskelley, Peggy Wepler, Elsie Buchan, Ellen Harmon, Dorothy Tyra, Shannon McEwen and Gloria Gibbs. The results of the games are as follows twinning teams named tirstjz juniors vs. freshmen, 34-15, seniors vs. freshmen, 32-12, juniors vs. sophomores, 30-6, freshmen vs. sophomores, 22-6, seniors vs. sophomores, 38-ll , and seniors vs. juniors, 22-20. Speedball One of the most enjoyable of all girls, sports is speedball. Therefore, its season is always accepted with pleasure by a large number of co-eds. Speedball is played much on the same order as hockey, with the exception that a soccer ball is used in place of a small puck. The object of each game is to make as many goals as possible. This year the seniors came out on top. The juniors finished a close second, third and fourth places were taken by the sophomores and freshmen. These games were played after school in round-robin fashion, under the auspices of the G.A.A. and the direction of the gym instructors. Outstanding players in this sport were Elizabeth Bellaver, senior, Jackie Ruedy, senior, Jane Macy, junior, Annabelle Brown, sophomore, Patricia Patterson, freshmen, Shizuye Kido, senior, Angie Ciocca, junior, Elsie Buchan, junior, Barbara Jessen, sophomore, Alma Sievers, sophomore, Ruby Crevolin, freshman, Alma Brown, senior' Mildred Summerhays, senior, Viva Roskelley, junior, and Shannon McEwen, junior. ! 3,8 A ,lil 's' 0 f -4 N 1 ' 4 , I 70-4 B. ,. G 9 Ga I HF 90' fs? X ,sf Q f 'L 'J 1 I la ,- Hockey Hockey, a favorite among the El Monte girls, is fast in action and thrilling to watch. This sport is rather new on the campus but is received enthusiastically' by all participants. Although it is not so rough, it is basically similar to ice hockey. The game is played by hitting a small cork ball from one extreme of the field to the other. There are eleven players on each team, and they are arranged in order of forwards, halfbacks, fullbacks, and goalkeepers. Competition was high this year among the different classes. The freshmen were determined to win, but even with the hard labor that they put forth, the upper classmen came through ahead. As in past years, the contests were played after school. All games were played under the capable leadership of the three gym instructors: Miss Eoma Clemans, Miss Katherine Bandy, and Mrs. Elizabeth Daniels. At first, it looked as if there would be a tie between the seniors and juniors, but in the final combat the juniors came out victorious by a 1-0 Score. The winning team was composed of Beth Kelty, Wilma Shrimp, Beatrice Shrager, Elsie Buchan, Shannon McEwen, Ellen Harmon, Angie Ciocca, captain, Viva Roskelley, Shirle Applegate, Phyllis Clabaugh, and Marie Miali. Other outstanding players of the season were Juanita Moody, jackie Ruedy, Euna Firestone, Peggy O'Connor, Eula Firestone, Dorothy Tyra, Annabelle Brown, Shizuye Kido, and Ruby Crevolin. Grir1s'Baseball Out of the hundreds. of E. U. H. S. co-eds who participated in this all-American sport, thirty-six were selected because of their excellent playing for membership on G. A. A. teams. Interest in the game was especially high this year because the two-hundredth anniversary of baseball was being celebrated all over the United States. Four diamonds were available for the girls' use. The classes were divided with the following instructors for each class: Mrs. Elizabeth Daniels, juniors and seniors, Miss Eoma Clemans, freshmen, Mis Katherine Bandy, sophomores. Regular softball rules were observed in all games. Baseball has proved to be almost as exciting to girls as football is to boys. Small crowds of girls are seen watching this interesting fast action game, even if they cannot play themselves. Co-eds showing high possibilities in their field are Shizuye Kido, senior, Elizabeth Bellaver, senior, Virginia Ross, senior, Alma Brown, senior, Mildred Summerhays, senior, Angie Ciocca, junior, Viva Roskelley, junior, Elsie Buchan, junior, Alma Sie- vers, sophomore, Barbara jessen, sophomore, Olive LaComb, freshman, Martha Stagis, freshman, Ruby Crevolin, freshman, Peggy O'Connor, freshman, Dorothy Tyra, fresh- man. And so, with the sport of sports, E. U. H. S.'s G. A. A. activities end, and the final thought and hope is that next year everyone will enjoy the same round of fun that was experienced during the year of 1939. Tennis and Vollevball Volleyball has been played for the first time this year as a G.A.A. activity. Although the game has never been very popular in previous seasons, this year saw a renewed enthusiasm in this sport. The instructors were surprised and pleased to see so many girls take advantage of the opportunity to play in this year's tournaments. The seniors were again in first place, with the juniors following in- second. Credit for fine work should be given to Elizabeth Bellaver, Shizuye Kido, Alma Brown, Phyllis Clabaugh, Viva Roskelley, Angie Ciocca, jane Macy, Grace Maxcy, Anna- belle Brown, Ruby Crevolin, Patricia Patterson, Peggy O'Connor, Phyllis Franklin, Dessie Richey, Peggy Foster, Alma Sievers, Norma Brostedt, Martha Stagis, and Dorothy Tyra. Tennis, a fast-moving game, has not been played by many of the young ladies because of limited facilities. Three girls are, however, noted for their ability in this sport. They are Shirley Esse, sophomore, Mary june Williams, sophomore, and Margaret Karlson, junior. I. ,af -KEN. ..-..- 5l""12"' 'S-1-QQ .

Varsity As a plan to eliminate the awarding of emblems, honorary ,varsity teams were formed this year for the first time. In order to become members of the varsity, the girls must be approved by the gym instructors according to their attendance, ability, and sportsmanship. These honored co-eds are given the following privileges: membership in the Girls' Letter Society, purchase of a sweater and emblem when approved by the executive coun- cil. Stripes may be placed on sweaters according to the number of years a member is chosen on one of the honorary squads. The teams include freshmen and sophomores, as well as juniors and seniors. This provides a means of acknowledging the splendid work of lower classmen in addition to the performances of the upper division competitors. Not only does this plan help to give credit where it is due, but it also provided the young ladies with a goal toward which they may strive. An interest is thus created, and clean play in after-school sports is encouraged. Therefore, the physical education teachers have given the girls an opportunity to prove to themselves and others that they have ability in athleticsg ,for this organization admits only the best of players. luniors and Seniors "Champs" in most of the sports in which they participate, the juniors and seniors rule the lower classmen with an iron hand. Traditions of the school have shown the "high and mighties" always victorious and, if perchance they lose a game, then disgrace is upon them. - Seniors and juniors have usually battled for first place in sports. They are always "friendly enemies," but out to win. Some of the more prominent players are jackie Ruedy, Dessie Richey, Shizuye Kido, lilizabeth Hellaver, Mildred Summerhays, Phyllis Franklin, Elaine Rrugere, seniors, Angie Ciocca, Viva Roskelley, Shannon Mcliwen, Margie Hicks, Shirle Apple- gate, -lane Macy, and Edith Prosin, juniors. And so with the seniors of '39 passing from the campus, eyes are turned towards the class of '40 and seniors of tomorrow. lt is hoped that next year's sports will hold as much pleasure, enjoyment, and clean outdoor fun as this year's have. Freshmen and Sophomores One of the most satisfactory groups that the gym instructors have each year is com- posed of sophomores and freshmen. These two units seem to show more enthusiasm toward girls' sports than the upper class girls. And so this year, as before, the "young- sters" showed a great deal of promise as E. U. H. S.'s future sportwomen. These co-eds turned out for G.A.A. as regular as clock work, but because of lack of experience they seldom won a practice or a championship game. However, this did not quell their enthusiasm, but rather seemed to increase it. The freshmen did, however, win one game over the upper classmen, when Dorothy Tyra made thewin-ning point in a hockey game against the seniors, the score being 1-0. Some of the more outstanding players were Peggy O'Connor, Gloria Gibbs, Dorothy Tyra, Barbara Mueller, Patricia Patterson, freshmeng Alma Sievers, Eula Firestone, Bar- bara jessen, Annabelle Brown, Grace Maxcy, sophomores. Results of the hockey games were twinning team first, junior-freshmen, 2-1 5 junior- sophomore, 3-1 5 senior-sophomore, 5-1 g and sophomore-freshmen, 1-0. The outcomes of speedball were junior-freshmen, 5-0, senior-freshmen, 16-03 junior- sophomore, 7-4, senior-sophomore, 12-75 and freshmen-sophomore 2-2. Scores of the other sports could not be obtained before publication time. However, these facts give an idea of the younger athletes who are the crcimc dc la crime of our present girl competitors. ,,,4,.,a . an-.ish Harmon, Ciocca, Roskelley, Macy, McEwen, Buchan, Brown, Summerhays, Sievers, Ruedy, Kido, Bellaver, Jessen, Tyra. as 06 f.
