M ' | spl THE ROAD OF LEARNING, a basis of a true democratic civilization, is again being tra- versed by many who, for so long, were forced to walk the narrow and rocky detours of war. And so, the campus and the college have be- come again the source and the life for youth. To the college and collegian, those fundamen- tal forces of an educated world, we dedicate this annual. {J(rnfe Jy _..„. -R loN DtANS SNAPS FALL PICNIC Ifa ' roBViAL SNAPS PUBLIC M C ' CHRISTMAS Pl A RADIO ;,SSEMBUES ANNUAV FPARTMENt (rt S ch S ' S ' aders S KETBALL swmMWG BASEBALL Sl? SPORTS mf J View of the south end of the administration building of Fullerton Junior College. FULLERTON JUNIOR COLLEGE is set against a colorful mountain back- ground. The campus is conveniently located near the residential district and is easily accessible to the students of nearby cities, as well as of the beach and mountain areas. The natural beauty of the spa- cious lawns, numerous flower beds and trees is the perfect site for the lovely buildings of Spanish-style architecture. The tan of the buildings, the red tile roofs and beautiful marble designs blend well with the sunny atmosphere oi the campus. Main entrance to the administration building. West entrance to the library and arts building. Scene showing east campus, the administration building in the foreground and the commerce building to the right. RISING HIGH above the rest of the junior college and high school campuses is the " tower. " Part of the auditor- ium, shared by junior college and high school, the tower has clocks on each of its four sides which govern all campus activ- ities. This year, with the aid of a loudspeaker system, mem- bers of the a capella group broadcast beautiful Christmas carols to the entire campus from atop the tower building. THE STUDENT UNION and patio is the center of many activities, both social and aca- demic. The patio is often the scene of outdoor pep rallies and club initiations. THE BELL TOWER on the commerce building is another point of interest on the campus. Installed just last year, the bell is similar to the old bells used in the first Cali- fornia missions. IN THE FOREGROUND are the col- ored tiles that blend well with the other Spanish-style features to brighten the cam- pus scene. Students are justly proud of the campus, which is always clean and neat in appearance. SUPERINTENDENT T. STANLEY WARBURTON, a friendly and able administrator, is the superintendent of both FuUerton Junior College and high school. Mr. Warburton has served in this ca- pacity since August 1945, when he suc- ceeded A. S. Red- fern in this office. Superintendent T. Stanley Warburton DIRECTOR DOCTOR WILLIAM T.

Those who made up the com- mission were: Bill Adams, vice presi- dent; Dave Lamphere, treasurer; Cuba Amend, secretary; and Ercel Morris, social chairman. Others who composed the commission were: Bob Blurton, sophomore president; Glenn Nichols, freshman president; Frank Hibbs, Veterans ' club president; Lois Sheets, AWS president; and Jim Kuhn, AMS president.

Dr. Albert Williams capably advised the sophomore class in its activities throughout the year. A Valentine dance after the Citrus- Fullerton basketball game on February 14 was the main sophomore-sponsored social event of the year. The dance, held in the Sophomore President Bob Blurton William Adams Robert Blurton Ruth Allin Philip Borst Cuba Amend Buster Bruce Charles Bell Barbara Burdorf MORES girls ' gymnasium, was one of the largest attended sports dances of the spring semester. The sophomores sponsored various social activities during the year. A total of 231 sophomore students enrolled in Fullerton Junior College this year; however, not all of this number were graduated.

A total of 1098 students — many veterans, students from outlying cities and students from the FuUerton area — made up the class this year. Many classes were divided to meet the influx and, in one case, a night class in psychology was instituted to meet the needs of the students. NOTE: Readers will notice that the names of all freshmen are arranged in alphabetical order, rather than the order in which they appear in the pictures. This was done since students were not arranged in rows, but rather in informal groupings.

During lunch time, the students participated in a rousing pep rally before the evening foot- ball game. FALL PICNIC IT WAS THE job of Ercel Morris and her social committee to arrange this year ' s highly successful Fall Picnic at Irvine Park. Among the activities feat- ured were the traditional push- ball contest and boat races. THE HIVE " MEET ME IN THE HIVE " is a common phrase often heard on the campus. The Hive is conveniently lo- cated adjacent to the patio, where most of the students " hang out. " It is one place that is always busy. The ever-present juke box accompanies all-day card games, bull sessions, and gen- eral good times. Some of the more hardy stu- dents ev en do their studying here. At the sound of the noon whistle, every available table is filled with clamoring, hungry Hornets. Long lines form for malts, cokes, coffee and sand- wiches. TURKEY DAY THE TRADITIONAL Turkey day celebration was one of the most colorful events of the fall season. This year, the student body saw a real contest in the selection of a suitable queen from the bevy of beautiful girls nominated. However, after the votes were counted, charm- ing Cuba Amend was pro- claimed Turkey day Queen the night before the game at a pep rally held in the auditorium. Following the rally was a serpentine through the streets of Ful- lerton and back to the gym for the Sadie Hawkins dance. The next day, dur- ing half-time at the football game, Cuba, surrounded by her lovely attendants, was crowned Turkey Queen. The queen and her attend- ants were pre- sented to the crowd Turkey day in a flower- draped car. The queen ' s attend- ants were, from left to right: Eleanor Kuntz, Betty Sorrells, Reggie Olson, and Mickey Orman. QUEEN CUBA AMEND INFORMAL DANCES EVERY FRIDAY noon saw the college lounge darkened and jammed with students dancing to popular recorded music. A good place just to " get acquainted. " The noon dances, managed by Don Baggott, provided a welcome diver- sion from the day ' s study hours. Others were sponsored by various campus organizations. This year, out-numbered three to one, the girls found a long and ready stag line at noon dances. CLIMAXING MANY sporting events, pep rallies, football and basketball games, were the popular evening dances held in the girls ' gymnasium. Music for these dances was provided either by orchestra or records. One of the most memor- able informal evening dances was the Sadie Hawkins dance, which was sponsored by the Pep club the night preceding the Turkey day game. Other after-game dances were sponsored by the freshman and sophomore classes, social so- rorities and other organizations. At the right is the first after- game dance of the year, when the students danced to the music of Joe Bills ' orchestra. Refreshments were cookies and cokes. WISPY GOWNS, flattering lights and soft music marked this dance as one of the most memorable social events of the year. Ercel Morris, head of the social committee, handled ar- rangements for the formal, which was attended by hundreds of couples. SPRING FORMAL THE ANNUAL Spring Formal held during Blue and Gold Week was truly a fitting climax to a year of outstanding activities. V E T S ' HOUSING FULLERTON JUNIOR COLLEGE is justly proud of the opportunity it affords its veteran students, both mar- ried and single. The single veterans found housing at the Vets ' House, located north of Fuller ton on the Bastanchury Ranch. The married veterans ' housing unit. College View, is located just back of the north field near Fullerton Heights. Jerry and Jo Stack, typical couple at the unit, settle down after dinner to look over Jerry ' s homework. THE HOUSING unit is divided into three terraces on which are located one, two and five room dwellings. The low rent and nearness to school were only two of the advantages afforded veterans by the unit. Unofficial mayor of the little vil- lage was Student Body Prexy Chuck Bell. Married veterans were more than appreciative of this unit which solved many of their problems at a time of critical housing shortages. s. ClU 1 ' ■f ' X hfk . l % ■ " ., AWS President Lois Sheets A. W. S. AWS, COMPOSED of all women stu- dents in the college, was led by dynamic Lois Sheets, who was energetic in creating a calen- dar of widely diversified activities. Several assemblies for women were sponsored by the group, featuring fashion shows, prominent speakers, and student talent. During the spring, the organization held an all-school girl-date dance. Through AWS efforts, various furnishings were supplied to the veterans ' home, as a result of a shower attended by many women students. Mrs. Esther Litchfield Hatch was the adviser for the group. Secretary Neola Lemke and Publicity Chairman Dolores Hund. Vice President Betty Grant, Treasurer Rosemarie Cribben and Parliamen- tarian Marjorie Ustick. PAT MERRITT was one of the girls who modeled in the AWS fashion show held during the first semester. Several girls participated, modeling sports, afternoon, and evening ensem- bles. EASY-GOING, well-liked Jim Kuhn took time out from his football and track activities to lead the large membership of the Associated Men Students through the first year since 1941 that AMS has operated on a full calendar. The organ- ization proved to be second only in size to the Associated Student Body, as all male students on the campus were automatically members. Treasurer Bill Krupp Vice President Bill Poore Secretary Norman Frieze President Jim Kuhn A. M. S. AMS MEMBERS attended numerous assemblies especially arranged for their bene- fit, featuring prominent speakers, educational films, and, in December, special pictures taken of the Turkey day game. Dean of Men Denver S. Garner acted as adviser for this large organ- ization. Members of AMS relax in the college locker room. THETA NU THETA UNDER THE EFFICIENT guidance of their personable president, Billie Jenson Keith, Theta Nu Theta, oldest social sorority on the Fullerton campus, compiled a color- ful calendar of social and service activities this year. Early fall saw the sorority get into full swing with the traditional rush parties for potential pledges, climaxed with a brief on-campus initiation. Theta President Billie Keith AS THEIR CONTRIBUTION to the parties of the holiday season, Thetas played host to their dates at a formal dinner dance at Hugheston Meadows, at- tended by both present members and alumnae. Included among other events were several trips to the theater in Los Angeles, a delightful mother-daughter bridge party, and the annual girl-date late in the spring. The sorority invaded Balboa ' s sunny shores for a hilarious Easter week. Among social services parti- cipated in by Thetas were ardent cooperation in the WSSF campaign, the sales of golden chrysanthemums at the annual Turkey day game, and the sorority-spon- sored dance held in April. Adviser for the girls was Mrs. Myrtle Stuelke. Second Vice President Betty Porter Secretary Eleanor Jones First Vice President Dorothy Dodd Sorority members.

THETA NU THETA pledges spent a grueling night, the climax of traditional Hell Week, at Laguna Beach ' s famed haunted house. The ill-fated pledges were led upstairs and downstairs in the rickety old house, and afterwards were treated to unappetizing mor- sels of food. M HBB- HORNET KNIGHTS HORNET KNIGHTS, inactive since 1943, reorganized this year to serve the student body. Basically a service organization, the Knights are sponsored by the student body commission. An honorary group, membership is by application and election. Goal of the group is to spread good fellowship and school spirit among students. Included among the Knights ' services this year were the handling of crowds at various athletic events, distri- bution of the Pigskin Review at the Turkey day game, as well as various ushering duties. John Eastland was president of the group, with Charles Shultz, vice-president, Ralph Corliett as secretary-treasurer, John Daniel and Fred Kirkpatrick as directors of publicity.

DI GAMMA NU ALPHA DI GAMMA NU ALPHA, pre-nursing sorority, led by capable President Charlene Lewis, stood out as one of the most active organizations on campus. Following a policy of presenting to members an accurate and thorough picture of hospitals and hospital work in Southern California, as well as furthering interest in various phases of medical science, members visited almost every large hospital in the area and heard numerous speakers dis- cuss topics pertaining to the student nurses ' future professions. Social activities of the sorority included a Christmas party in the college lounge, and monthly pot-luck dinners.

KAPPA LAMBDA SIGMA, led by its conscientious blonde president, Ruth Thatcher, added a colorful page to its his- tory with the culmination of this year ' s activities. This social sorority participated in a galaxy of enjoyable events, including rush parties, a mountain week-end at Big Bear, several informal pot-luck dinners, and a trip to " The Drunkard. " Kappas working with the Veterans ' club sponsored a Christmas party for the under-privileged children of the commun- ity, and worked on the WSSF campaign. During basketball season the sorority spon- sored a highly successful post-game semi- formal dance, featuring the music of Joe Bills ' orchestra. Club adviser was Miss Irma Topp. B D A SIGMA Thursday of Hell Week saw Kappa pledges all " dressed up. " Bedraggled pledges sit forlornly in a corner of the Hive during initiation. ADDING A HUMOROUS touch to the fall term was the Kappa on-campus initiation, when the pledges arrived dressed in tattered clothes and tremendous signs, and wore a multitude of tight pigtails on their heads.

From Left to Right: Ruth Peabody, treasurer, Barbara Burdorf, vice president, Margaret Hodson, secretary. " ONE WORLD " was the theme this year {or the Young Women ' s Christian association. Led by Doris Sawhill, president, the YWCA com- pleted a busy and successful school year. Several of the social activities such as the Halloween and Christmas parties, as well as an all-school Thanks- giving chapel, were sponsored with the cooperation of the YMCA. The International dinner, which is an annually-sponsored YWCA affair, was this year attended by more than one hundred persons. The proceeds of this dinner were given to the World Students Service Fund. The drive on the Fullerton Junior College campus was vigorously supported by the YWCA. Other events which appeared on the active calendar of the YWCA were the welcome tea, Pialloween dance, rummage sale, noon dance, and Easter breakfast. Students enjoyed an evening of dancing and entertainment at the YW Halloween dance held in the college lounge. Members prepare hot breakfast of bacon and eggs. Club members consume large amounts of piping hot food. Y. M. C. A. Guests dined at the co-sponsored YW-YM Inter- national dinner during the WSSF campaign. Officers of the YMCA were, from left to right: Ted Shroeder, Fay Hill, Bill Spencer, and Otto Hansen. AFTER SEVERAL YEARS of relative inactivity, Hornet- ville ' s YMCA reawakened this fall to undertake an active schedule which included varied student services, inspirational services, combined forums with YWCA, and social functions. Popular among its members was the monthly breakfast, which featured speakers who presented valuable messages to the group. Along with the YW, the YMCA took a leading part in formulating the WSSF drive and carrying it to a suc- cessful climax. YM members, headed by President Fay Hill, took time out from their serious activities to hold several parties, includ- ing a stag, and, in cooperation with the YWCA, a Halloween party and an informal Christ- mas dance, as well as beach parties and a mountain trip. DELTA PSI OMEGA Delta Psi President Jeanne Gerrish. Fraternity members: Nor- man Stanley, Chet Cassel- man, Wanda Rinehart, Bob Woodroof, Barbara Hicks, and Diana Margwarth. Members pitch in to " clean up " after a pot-luck dinner in the lounge.

The group, headed by President Jack Parsons, studied business trends and sales techniques, and featured prominent men and women in the busi- ness field as speakers at its bi-monthly meetings. Social activities also played a prominent part in the club ' s affairs, as members attended skating parties, dances, and informal dinners.

CHRISTMAS PLAY The nobles bring gifts to the cathedral. 4 WHY THE CHIMES RANG 99 PRESENTED BEFORE THREE large audiences, the an- nual Christmas play, " Why the Chimes Rang, " met with great success. The play, a combina- tion of both high school and junior college talent, was given in two matinees and an even- ing performance. The story, written by Elizabeth McFadden, which in- volved Holger, a small peasant boy and his gift to the Christ Child, was simple and beauti- ful. The scenery was realistic- ally erected, especially the great cathedral windows which created a striking stage back- ground. The lighting was equally effective and well han- dled. The costuming for the members of the cast was richly executed; from rags to jeweled costumes, all were expertly done. ON THE AIR THE RADIO WORK- SHOP, the first of its type at Fullerton Junior College, was one of the most interesting clas- ses on the campus. The stu- dents devoted time to every phase of radio broadcasting, including script-v riting — both comedy and serious drama — speech improvements with the use of a special recording ma- chine, radio advertising, and general microphone and studio technique. During the course of the year, the students visited radio studios in Los Angeles where they toured behind the scenes to watch the profession- als at work. David Moody takes his cue while Dwane Fickle, Kenny Nelson and Shirley PuUen stand by. Pat Merrift, Jim Wannamaker, Al Merritt, Marilou Neja, and Earl Garrick study their scripts before air time. UNDER THE GUIDING hand of their instructor, Mrs. Marthella Randall, the stu- dents acted as writers, directors and pro- ducers of a bi-monthly radio show pre- sented over station KVOE. These fifteen- minute broadcasts consisted of a variety of programs, including interviews with faculty members and campus personalities, newscasts, round-table discussions, ex- cerpts from plays, and sports broadcasts. Participants in the radio shows also had an opportunity to handle their own sound effects. During the Christmas season, the students produced an all-musical program which featured the college a capella group in a series of Christmas carols. Also ap- pearing on the program was the FJC salon orchestra. Sapiens (David Moody) is consoled by Antiope {Barbara Hicks). " THE WARRIOR ' S HUSBAND " THE WARRIOR ' S HUSBAND, " a one-act farce by Julia Thompson which depicts the dominance of Ama- zon women over men, highlighted a student body assembly presented on October 28. The story was concerned with the possession of the Amazons ' all- powerful girdle which made them mas- ters over all the men, and gave them the power to conquer. In a war with the Army of Hercules, Queen Hippolyta leaves the girdle in the hands of her general, Antiope, who in turn allows herself to be swept off her feet by hand- some Theseus, Hercules ' general. With the heart of Antiope at a complete loss and also the girdle, womankind is forced to kneel to man as superior. Lorraine Samon, David Moody, Barbara Hicks, Chet Casselman, Jack Jordan, Norman Stanley, Jeanette Leach, Shirley Pullen, Marjorie Johan- nes, Dolores Pecci and Eleanor Jones participated. DRAMATIC THIS YEAR, the student body members were entertained with two dramatic assemblies which proved to be outstanding successes. " The Warrior ' s Husband " was presented during the fall term, while " The Man Who Came to Dinner " was given in the spring. Both of the productions were under the direction of Mrs. Marthella Randall, who worked tirelessly throughout the year to bring to the student body the sort of entertainment which they en- joyed most. AS Hercules is captured by the Amazons. The conquering of the Amazons. SEMBLIES " THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER " was presented in an assembly for the student body and the general public on Feb- ruary 6. Members of the cast, headed by David Moody, starring as Mr. Whiteside, gave excellent performances.

The story concerned two addled old ladies who attempt to poison the guests in their house. The situations created by these pert, gracious, but quite crazy old maids made the pres- entation an outstanding success. The members of the cast did an excellent job of characterization in their varied roles. Marthella Randall, director of the production, received high praise for this triumphant dramatic production of the year. ORCHESTRA THE COLLEGE ORCHES- TRAL group was composed of a dozen junior college students under the direction of Harold Walberg. This group also played in a combined ensemble of high school and junior col- lege students at various assem- blies during the year. THE COLLEGE a capella group of more than sixty male and female voices enlivened many assemblies and dramatic pre- sentations ViTith its vocal artis- try. Particularly outstanding v as the work of the combined a capella and women ' s chorus in the annual Christmas play. A capella is di- rected by Earl Narramore. CAPELLA THIS GROUP of women ' s voices was often featured in musical programs and assem- blies. The chorus sang a var- iety of selections, including both light opera and modern music. Earl Narramore also directed this group. WOMEN ' S CHORUS THE COLLEGE BAND, re- organized in full this year under the direc- tion of G. W.

FOOTBALL COACHED BY Ed God- dard and Dick Spaulding, who was later replaced by John Arrambide, the Swarm tied for second place in the Eastern JC Conference for 1946. After two pr actice games with Giendale and John Muir, the Hornets played their first league game with the ultimate conference winner, Chaffey, which they tied 12-12. After Hornet touch- downs in the first and third quarters by Frank Oxanda- boure, and Lee Hodge to Frank Munoz, the Panthers came back in the fourth quarter with two tallies to deadlock the score. Lee Hodge escapes Santa Ana players for a long run The Hornets broke into the win column by downing the Riverside Tigers ,16-7, for their second league encounter. They scored twice in the first half by virtue of a 75-yard drive climaxed by Lee Hodge going 17 yards for the initial touch-down. They scored again in the closing minutes of the same frame when Oxandaboure recovered a Riverside fumble and later scored on a pass. An under-rated San Bernardino eleven came from behind in its tilt with the Swarm, handing the locals their second tie of the season, this time a 7-7 stalemate. Gene Menges tossed one to Herb Wilson and speared Jim Kuhn to place the ball on the Indian six. Hodge piled over for the score. On Turkey day the Hornets met the Santa Ana Dons on Fullerton ' s gridiron for the annual Thanksgiving classic between these two teams. In the closing minutes of the con- test with Fullerton in the lead, a desperation pass brought the Dons out ahead, 19-14, as the gun sounded. The lead wavered back and forth throughout the contest. Nick Eropkin snagged a pass from Menges to score standing up. Dave Hernandez converted, putting the locals in the lead 7-6. Fullerton ' s other score came when Menges again passed to Oxandaboure, who ran 29 yards to score. The coaches and entire squad deserve credit for the splendid teamwork throughout the year.

SONG AND YELL LEADERS " THREE LITTLE GIRLS m blue, " Velda Clark, Mary Pickens, and Bette Whitelock, were the capable, smiling song leaders at all Hornet football games and pep rallies. Clever routines displaying plenty of pep and energy were their specialty. Leading the Hornet cheering section were smiling Bob " Sqeek " Falconer, able Harry Hibler, and redheaded Andy Sorsabal. The trio led the Hornets through the football season at all games and rallies. During the later port of the year, Herb Axup replaced Andy Sorsabal as a third mem- ber of the trio. The cheer lead- ers worked closely with the members of the newly-estab- lished Pep club to make a livelv and spirited rooting section at every game. . .J FOOTBALL SQUAD Players from left to right, backfield: " Keko " Munoz, lim Smart, H.

' . f . I THE 1947 TORCH ADJUSTMENT HAS BEEN the job of most of the students at Fullerton JC this year — a year characterized by alternate tides of excitement and interest and periods of depression. So it has been with the staff of the 1947 yearbook. Each has strived in his particular way to reach a set goal — that of publishing a successful and interest- ing book. It is the earnest hope of this staff and myself that the 1947 Torch will meet with student approval, and that, in coming years, the Torch may grow bigger and better to accommodate the ever-increasing student body. Not only did the immediate staff stri ve to complete work on the book, but count- less others helped along the way. Appreciation should be expressed first to the Los Angeles Engraving Company for Mr. Fred Smith ' s invaluable aid in page layouts, divi- sion page plans, and tips on small details which helped to make the book individual and interesting. Our thanks also to Mr. Sawyer and Mrs. Owen of Stationers Corpor- ation in Los Angeles, who did such a wonderful job on the copywork and printing details of the Torch. Our sincerest gratitude to Mr. Reynolds, who did the printing of all our pic- tures. Not only did he give us special attention and consideration, but in some cases, particularly when we neared the well-known deadline, almost did the impossible. Thanks, too, to Allan Hall, the commercial artist who created several of the attrac- tive page layouts in the activities and sports sections. Last, but not least, my thanks to the entire staff of the Torch for 1947. First to the photographers, dependable Glenn Walls and jovial Chuck Lonzo who turned in wonderful work throughout the year. Thanks, too, to Jack Haddon, who was unable to be with the staff for the entire year. Next to Marilyn McGuire, not only for her won- derful advertising section, but also for dependable help in every phase of composi- tion. Next to " Rusty " St. John, for her very efficient picture schedule, without which we never would have met deadlines; also for her capable help in handling the typing of the copy. Heidi Hains, Bob Bachman, and Norman Stanley also deserve credit for their capable help in the completion of the Torch. Dr. Ivan Benson, adviser, deserves a vote of thanks from the staff for his patience with a novice editor and, at times, with a somewhat unruly staff in general. A last few thanks-you ' s to all those indivi- duals who lent a helping hand here and there when necessary, and whose names, for lack of space, cannot be included.
