Publz'sl2eal by the Students o Ralph Waldo Emerson junior Hz'gl2 School Pomona, California June ..... 1943 Volume Eleven 1 man DEDICATIO In these uncertain days of war and chaos many loved ones and friends are leaving us to go to the fronts of battle and industry. A few months ago our good friend and principal was one of these to leave. He left us to take an important position with the Red Cross. He has served Emerson ,long and well. First as a teacher, then as an administrator, Emersonians, throughout the years, have found him a friend and helpful adviser. The students and faculty of Emerson wish him much happiness and success in his new work. The Blue Dart Staff hopes that this annual will help to keep the happy days at Emerson living in his memory. In grateful appreciation of his sincere interest, understanding, and guidance, we dedicate the 1943 Blue Dart to Bertram A. Betts, our friend and principal. BERTRAMALLENBETTS PURE WURD XVith "On to Victory" as the for our 1943 Blue Dart, we, th Dart Staff, wish you to keep in that we are all engaged in a des fight-11 fight against I-Iitlcrism it stands for.

The years that I have spent here have been the happiest and most inspiring years of my life, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the splendid cooperation and enthusiasm of both the Faculty and the Student Body. It has been this spirit that has made the successes and even the failures seem worthwhile. I take with me many happy memories of Emerson and the friendly associations here. Through the years I will watch with interest your activities and achievements, knowing that the high ideals of the Blue and White will always be maintained. My very best wishes for your continued success and happiness. Most sincerely, BERTRAM A. BETTS Mrs. Tangeman-Alg., Coun- seling, Vice Prin. MESSAGE TO SENIORS The time of parting has come and we say farewell to the class of 1943. Yours is a time of wide and varied opportunities. In each of you is something that can help to meet this day's needs. May you recognize it, and use it freely to strengthen the cause for which we fight. As steel is tempered to make finer weapons may you be tempered to greatest usefulness. May your opinions broaden into balanced judgment, your independence be moulded into wisdom, and your bright remarks mellow into true humor, but may your gay spirit endure forever to make glad the lives of others as you have made us glad. Sincerely, A RUTH P. TANGEMAN, Acting Principal ADMINISTRATION Under the capable leadership of this year's faculty, the students of Emerson have learned how to become better citizens, also how to be good leaders in the world of tomorrow in which we will have a large part. We of Emerson were very sorry to lose Mr. Betts, but we understand he was needed for more im- portant work. I-Ie is an executive in the Red Cross. We cheerfully welcomed Mrs. Tangeman, who has taken over his position, and Mr. McPherson, who left some of his classes to be our Vice Principal. We realize this is especially hard for them, as they both have work outside these new positions. We wish to thank the office force for their splendid cooperation. Helping Mrs. Shepard were Mrs. Jewell, who left during the year, and Mrs. Glenn, who took her place. We were very sorry to see some of our teachers leave us, but we all welcome our new teachers.

During this past year of 1942 and 1943 the graduating class of Emerson has been putting forth its best effort in bringing about an immediate victory by help- ing buy several thousand dollars worth of war bonds and stamps, and by bringing in several tons of scrap metal. The seniors also made a good showing in their con- tributions to the Red Cross and March of Dimes drives. The school was presented with a lovely gift from the graduating class. Among the many very enjoyable events of the year were the P.T.A. dances and the Tenth Grade Noon dances which were in the capable hands of Miss Fitch and Mr. Guhin. Under the fine direction of Miss Fitch, Miss Pierson, Mr. Mitchell, and Mr. McPherson, Emerson is having a fine graduating class. Their studies and ex- periences at Emerson have prepared them to go forward "On to Victory." xx 3 P' er-fx tw-fx Richard Adams "Dick" rabbits to Gail mpton.

Student body assemblies were con- ducted in a dignified manner. Jack's gra- cious Way of introducing and thanking those who appeared on our programs, and the ap- propriate words he spoke on each occasion will be remembered with pride by the stu- dents of Emerson. He presided over the Student Council in a business-like manner and assumed responsibility in true executive fashion. J. Martin S. Weaver A S. Steiner B.

Betty Musgrove, Elaine Else, Tom Scudder, Don Meiklejohn, and Robert Wrillace all performed their duties of division chairmen well. Special mention is due Ed Johnson for his splendid cooperation and many hours of untiring effort. The whole group was under the careful supervision of Mr. McPherson. PHILOSOPHER The Philosopher staff is made up of students from the eighth, ninth, and tenth grades. It is a regular class. Not only does it please the school with its newsy paper, but it docs creative writing as well. The staff was under the splendid leadership of Miss Griggs.

Their duty this year was to enforce the following rules for safety as well as to preserve the democratic spirit: keep moving, keep in the right traffic lane, walk and do it quietly, take but one step at a time on the stairs, talk quietly be courteous to all, obey and respect traffic officers and do not talk to traflic officers while they are on duty. Joe Martin, Boys' Vice President of the student body, had the responsibility of organizing and supervising both squads. Mr. McPherson and Mr Stanton were the faculty advisers.

OFFICE FORCE The students who really keep our school going, helping everything to be on schedule, are those who help in the office. There is no rest for them. They run errands to all parts of the building, collect and mark the attendance slips and make themselves useful in many ways. This is good experience and is considered valuable in an educa- tional way. Ninth and tenth grade students with high marks in their school work are qualified for this volunteer service. LIBRARYFORCE This is a group of hard workers, which Emerson could not do without. Their duty is to help other students find the books they want. They volunteer their services, their only pay being the experience. We want to thank each and every librarian for his cheerful and valuable work. . , W , K, First row-B. Gee, D. Young, E.

HI-Y This year the Hi-Y sponsored many campaigns throughout the school. One of the outstanding events was an assembly by Jeffery Morgan. The Hi-Y had its yearly shoe shine and also sponsored a Courtesy Week. The I-Ii-Y and Boys' League got together and really put over the Boxing Ex- travaganza. Two of the most entertaining parties were the Mothers' and Fathers' nights. VIGILANTES A second chapter of Hi-Y was organized here in Emerson this year under the direction of Mr. Mitchell. The name recalls the efforts of western pioneers to clean up their government. This group of fellows cooperating with the First Chapter should prove a material force for better government of Emerson in days to come.

The practice of following regular court procedure was closely adhered to. The members of the court had the opportunity to visit both the Superior and the Justice Courts during the year and patterned their procedure according to the information received there. This activity was skillfully supervised by Mr. Dellenbach. SPANISH CL UB Those eligible for becoming members of the Spanish Club are Spanish students whose grades permit them to join. Again this year we had a large group. The leaders of this year's organization were Miss Griggs and Miss Palomares. The members enjoyed parties, dinners, excursions, movies, and many other interesting and entertaining experiences. l 4 J A ,v-.. . g.H , HQ? mi I ,-in .hh 'Ad-1 'ELK .N GIRLS' GLBB CL UB The Girls' Glee Club has been a great success under the fine direction of Mr. Stanton.

Among their greatest contributions was the cleaning out of the costume room and the store room on the bridge. Things have been straightened up so that they can be found, and a system of checking out costumes and properties was inaugurated. ASSEMBL Y COMMITTEE During the year we have enjoyed many entertaining and educational assemblies. Under Mr. McPherson's guidance, the committee, with the cooperation of the Student Council, has scheduled programs and movies which have been pleasing and worthwhile to our student body. Some of the best programs scheduled had to be can- celled because tbe enter- tainers were called into the armed forces. Each of the four grades has a represent- ative on the Assembly Committee. 1 ,nr x .'. .xf ew 14.1.- 11 'QW 555' , ., ., ',l' C., 'all ., , " I' -'mln-ff , W F17 1 32. fl.: .11 C1553 s.-' 1 ':- 1- 3' 4 .

C BASKETBALL Starting off very well, the C Basketball team won their first two games with Fremont and then failed to win another game.

The front line was made up of Olson, Meiltlejohn and Tanner. The guards were composed of Van Diest, Biddle and Colton. This year's tennis team consisted mostly of tenth graders. The members really knew the game and played it well. Miss Houston was the instructor and spent several hours each week training the players. Emerson had matches with the near by schools, and came out on top a good part of the time. TENNIS First row-R. Pierpoint, N Powell, B. Goyette, S. Weaver F. Huarte, M. Smith, L. john- son, A.

Witli Gunther starring in the hundred and two-twenty-yard dashes, we romped through a practically undefeated season. Our strong side was in the dashes, with Gunther in the short dashes, the Arkle brothers in the low hurdles, and Keckley and Bowe in the three-thirty. Other men who won letters were Bill Zietz, who ran the distances in snappy fashion, and Loran Garrett who did good work in the shot put. Many others came out and trained hard, but did not win enough points to get letters. They deserve praise, however, for their share in upholding the honor of the school in track. To Charlie Gallager, the team manager and Jack Todd, score keeper, who did a swell job in keeping the team together and administering to their wants, the team gives its thanks. BOXING First row-A.

She not only serves us a well balanced diet in the form of tasty dishes, but she has a happy smile and a pleasant word for everyone, no matter how tired or hurried she may be. She has great patience with her student helpers and is able to get a cheerful response and lots of work from them all. She is a tradition at Emerson of Whom we are proud.
