sion are responsibletor all the tine publicity
which was distributed to herald the torth-
coming ot any school event or activity.

Thanlrs,to Shirley Muto and the Assem-
blies Commission, all student body assemblies
were carefully planned, providing educational,
as well as entertaining programs. AII athletic
awards were presented to those who partici-
pated in some s ort, in an assembly designed
especially tor that purpose. Musical enter-
tainment which included our own Don Band,
and such professional talent as the Royal
Guards, was received with great enthusiasum
by the student body.

As one ot the most active organizations
on the EI Rancho campus, the Activities Com-
mission has sponsered such gala events as the
Houston Hop and Western Days. First
semester Commissioner, Jack Traylor worked
very hard to put on the Houston Hop, which
was a complete success. Second semester

ins'IiIl responsibility and 'I'o help the student
adjust Io the situations and problems which
he will encounter sometime during his lifetime.
Scheduled 'Io be started in 'the early part of
I954, 'the Student Court was a big item of

'Iice Ariel Davis successfully organized a
S'I'uden'I' Court which went into operation live

dance, athletic event, and for that matter
every activity which involved 'the handling of
linances for the El Rancho Student Bod , was
'Ialcen care of by John lMoney Bagsl Flowers
and his most efficient commission. All the
members of the Finance Commission are

The Pep Commission under the leadership
of Donna AI'I'ieri has had a busy year. They
were in charge of pep rallies, sponsored their
own assemblies, purchased a megaphone, and
pu'I' on a dance. Donna also attempted to
organize a card slunl' section for the football
games. All 'rhe decorations which were seen
on the goal posts during a football game were
strung up by the Pep Commission. All of

The colors of Blue and Gray were for the second time this year flying in the C. I. F. playoFFs. This feat was accomp-
lished by the I954 EI Rancho Varsity Baseball Squad, coached by Jack Dandrige who gave us a Bee football champion-
ship. The Don sluggers swept eight out ot ten S. G. V. L. games, defeating runner up Baldwin park twice. The Dan-
ridge clemons blasted such teams as Monrovia, Santa Maria, Citrus, South Pasadena, Paramount, California, Centennial
Bell Gardens and Baldwin Park. Only two boys on this years squad are seniors which means more glory tor EI Rancho
on the Baseball diamond next year.
Coach Earle Fisher gave us another championship as his J.V.'s blasted four hopless league opponents. The Fisher
nine romped to such victorys as I7-6 over Paramount, 2I-4 over Baldwin Parlc, and I5-I against Bell Gardens.
George Edwards led the men of Fisher in hitting, his pitching was also a standout. Other stars this year were,
Buddy Hollitield, Ray Schmitt, Frank Ramirez, Art Carmicheal, Dennis Dalros, Diclc Costibile, Jerry Haney, Gordon
Buchanen, Bart Kirlc and Tom Horan.
EI Rancho also tielded a freshman horse hide squad. Coached by Joe Osterman the ninth graders played such
teams as Citrus, Bellflower, Whittier, Excelsior and California.
