" In fact it has omitted many of the traditional features which have always been considered indispensable to an Annual. Instead of publishing a memory book, with cute little innuendos only initiates could decipher, the Torch Staff has .approached the college from the view- point of a picture magazine, (namely LIFE), and tried to document the place. You may not see ranks of your friends in groups carefully labeled, " J. Smith, B. Jones, and X. O ' Toole, " but you will see photo- graphs of the everyday happenings on the campus, which, as we all know, include such mundane things as attending classes. The staff feels that this edition will serve, not only as a reminder of your semesters at FJC, but as an informative bulletin on the College. We have tried to be objective in our survey,, and if emphasis is not placed on the traditional aspects of school life, perhaps it is because they have been over- emphasized in the past. A complete break w ith tradi- tion was neither possible nor desirable, and many features of other Annuals have been retained.

With the idea that an institution of the lower college division type can be a force in education beyond the narrow preparatory concept, the trustees and administration of the school have consistently broadened its aims and policies. As an indication of this trend, night classes in eighteen subjects, ranging from Algebra to Welding, are open to residents of the school district under the aegis of the Adult Education Division. The redefinition of the word education to in- clude training of immediate practical application has opened countless new teaching fields. Alongside the University Parallel courses for students planning to transfer to four-year institutions, the school features a broad program of vocational training. ' These courses provide instruction which can be utilized immediately upon graduation, and, through a well organized placement service, most graduates enter the field of business and industry at once. Established in 191 3 as a part of the Fullerton Public School system, FJC was reorganized as a district Junior College in 1922. The sc hool has grown from an initial enrollment of less than 100 to a peak of 1800 in 1946. Enrollment in 1948-49 is a " normal 1400 students. Benefiting from the provisions of the GI bill, as did most of the country ' s educational institutions, Fullerton has taken the Vet and his problems in stride and has suffered no letdown in standards as a result of the heavy GI enrollment. A Veteran counselling program was inaugurated early in the post-war period to help orient the returning scholars, and housing was provided in College View for vets with families. Students are drawn from many surrounding coi munities, some coming from as far away as Pomor Huntington Beach, and Downey. In a state he Junior Colleges are thick, this is a tribute to tl attractiveness of Fullerton as an educational center, well as a comment on well balanced social institutior The school, w hiie not of the " Rabid " type, suppoi its athletics to a commendable degree, and the camp is noticeably free of cliques. The most notable te dency is toward democracy in student affairs. ■iSc%;; ' J . ' ' ' .

Swimming and Water Polo squads have gained a tremendous reputation under the coachinsj of Jimmv Smith, Athletic Department Head, w hile the football, basketball, and track teams are alwavs well up in the Eastern Conference, including powerful Santa Ana, Chaffey, Riverside, and San Bernardino. This year, the ANNUAL TORCH staff has tried to do something rarely attempted in this tvpe of publication. We have viewed the school through non- partisan e es, as far as possible, and have presented a survey of the institution in the manner of a news- gathering agency. If we have made a reasonable inter- pretation of the situation at Fullerton it will surelv reflect the fact that its good name, and its hold on the affections of students and alumni are not of a transitorv nature.

I l_l IA-V BUSY DINING HALL SERVES 90,000 MEALS ANNUALLY Hard working school cafeteria staff serves meals at average cost, of thirty-one cents per plate to more than five hundred students and faculty members daily. This low cost is made possible through the efforts of Chester Schuepbach, school cafeteria head, and his efficient help. Schuepbach has guided this department of the school since the depression da s of 1933 with dexterity and economy. Included in the cafeteria ' s personel are twelve women employed full time and a number of students who help during the noon hour rush period. Being a non-profit organization, it makes only enough to meet expenses of the help, and break even on the costs of the food. WTiile doing this it still manages to put out meals that are attractive, nutritious and within the price range. Meals are served from 1 1 A.M. to i P.M. Busiest period follows dismissal of eleven o ' clock classes. J ' From kitchen to customer with satisfaction guaranteed is principle in serving of meals in school cafeteria. Strict rules of cleanliness are adhered to in the serving of food, disposal of garabage, and washing of dishes. 15 Administration Dr. William T. Boyce is in point of service the oldest Junior college president in the State of California. Elected director of FJC in 191 8, with a little interruption in ' 40-43, Dr. Bovce has steered the Hornet ship- of-state through the Roaring Twen- ties, the Great Depression, World War II and most important of all during the tremendous educational period of the GI Bill of Rights. Led bv young, indefatiguable T. Stanley Warburton, superintendent, the combined Junior college and high school board has the responsibility of directing an institution of well over three million dollars in capital assets. Shown below studying plans for the new hisjh school buildings are Ross N. Hodson, Harold Lang, Ralph C. Shook, Fred R. Dukes, Edmund Salter, and Superintendent Warbur- ton. 16 DEANS Tact and wisdom are prime requirements. Student activities are moni- tored tactfully by the offices of the deans of men and women. Sex dichotomy does not deter- mine the functions of these of- ficials who advise and guide men and women in close coordina- tion. Deans ' worst problem is bring- ing order out of the turbulence of student finance. Stewardship extends to approval of all ex- penditures for athletics, drama- tics, publications, social activi- ties. Greatest pleasure and satisfac- tion is gained through personal relations with the students and sitting in on their planning dur- ing the full year ' s calendar. Mrs. Esther Hatch, dean of women, is respected by com- munity and students alike, com- bination necessary in an office that must interpret one to the other constantly. Dr. Lynn Shel- ter, veteran English instructor, was acting dean in 1949, in ad- dition to his duties as registrar. MR.S. ESTHER HATCH, hardworking dean, consults ex- perts to aid students is solving personal problems. [JL TIT ' DR. LYNN SHELLER, pitch hitting for Dean, is Freshman English instructor, registrar, conducts interschool relations. 17 CAPABLE GEORGIA BRISCOE headed A.W.S. activities, as President. The cabinet members were: Mar Ragan, Marilyn Beck, Jackie Schooler, Georgia Barfoot, Nancy Groff, Jeanette Ehman, and Shirley Riehl. AWS As part of their purpose in orienting Junior College women to life at Fullerton, the A.W.S. presented for its first assembly an original skit entitled " Frivol- ously Feminine. " Popular col- lege girls modeled right and wrong campus wear. The high- light of first semester activities was the annual A.W.S.-W.A.A. Convention held this year on the Junior College campus. A morning of official business was topped off by luncheon at Knot ' s. Trips to the Corona Naval Hospital were continued as an A.W.S. project this year, and outstanding among them was the Christmas program. IS AMS Associated Men Students ' membership is automatic with purchase of student body card by males. Comparatively few show much interest in ordinary business affairs, but fall to in great numbers for activities. Carried on at intervals through- out the year, these events cover a wide range of entertainment, appealing to all tastes. From the Fall Picnic to its spring equiv- alent, Blue and Gold Day, FJC men take part in social functions v hich are a part of school tradi- tions. iSOCIATFD MEN STUDENTS elected Bob Bethurum, Monte Nitzkowsky, Bob Osborne, and John aven to head organization; Craven and Nitzkowsky talk over plans for Blue and Gold Day. PLAY NIGHT, held in Gvni, brought out lovers of dancing, volleyball, and free-style eating. Harm Forte, demonstrated fancv foot-work. 19 Student Commission is executive board of the student body. It is composed of the four student body officers, social chairman, freshman and sophomore class officers and presidents of the AA4S and AWS. Commission acts as buffer between students, faculty, and citizens of the community. Due to the conflict- ing aims of these groups, the job has many pitfalls, and members of the commission are often faced with adverse criticism. Nominal control of all ' campus activities rests in the hands of the Commission. Disposition of student funds is also left to the descretion of this bod v.

FAMILIAR FACES There are always a number of pepole whom everyone knows by sight, but who remain an- onymous to many. These individuals usually occupy unique positions which keep them so busy, and bring them in contact with so many students that they seldom have time to form friendships with many. At FJC some of the most familiar faces belong to the crews behind the counters, at the Hive, The Bookstore, and the teachers ' offices. Not so familiar, perhaps to the average student, but well known to part time employees is the Business Office staff.

These are jobs hich can better be done by part- time employees than those w ho work at the college on a full-time basis, since the hours are often irregular. The money comes as a welcome addition to the stud- ent ' s income, especialK ' the married vets, for the subsistence allowance paid bv the srovernment does not go very far toward supporting a family. 32 m.MAX (JFRR ) BOULEV, typical of veterans enn.llcci .r [•JC, sIk.us semester grades to daughter Leona 33 big onow Snow came to Fullerton for the first time in years last winter, and students quickly made the most of it. Snowball fights started in the early morning and kept up until the last of the snow was gone, and those students who had come from eastern states ribbed the native sons with cries of " So it just doesn ' t happen here, hey? " Cameras appeared as shutterbugs snapped pictures of what was a local phenomenon, and groups of Hornets scraped up enough snow to build a snowman or two. COEDS Si 4ILED in anticipation as a few flakes fell in the Patio the afternoon before. BOYS REJOICED next morning upon finding ground covered with white stuff, promptly snowballed each other. GIRLS AS WELL as boys joined in the horse- play. Many had seen snow previously only on infrequent trips to the mountains. 34 tJ - TIRED STUDENTS gathered enough snow to make a small snowman. By ten o ' clock most of the white stuff had vanished before warm sun. riL-iuKC ur int YtAK LOW TEMPERATURES, the resulting snow, and youthful ingenuity brought to the campus a new Intra- mural sport this year.

Vets Club Public-Spirited Veterans Do Much For School The Vets Club is pla ing an ever-increas- insT role of importance in college affairs. Members of the club are active in all campus affairs and, as a group, they spon- sored the Knothole gang, whereby grade- school kids were able to see the football games free. For months the vets rebuilt discarded toys which they distributed to the children of Fullerton at Christmas. PAUL CHAAIBERS plays Santa Claus to hundreds of children at Christmas party sponsored by Vet ' s Club. 39 YWCA Under the presidency of Alarian Kohlenber- ger, the .W ' .C.A. l)egan its activities with a Freshman Retreat on Balboa Island during the w eek preceding the opening of school, continued with a number of successful social and money- raising events. Outstanding among these were the Hobo Hop and a spagetti feed which drew hungry Hornets like flies. Thanksgiving and Easter assemblies were sponsored and the " Y " house was filled for slumber parties. Wkb a membership of more than one hund- red, the VVVCA is one of the largest organiza- tions on the Campus.

Failure in this test means a semester of English 60 — a review of high-school English, and the basic forms of English composition and grammar. Classes in " Dumbell English " are informal, enable those who have been a v ay from school for some time to re-orient themselves at a comfortable pace. Spelling, sentence structure, parts of speech and their proper use in sentences are stressed, so that hen the student reaches college classes the work is less difficult for them. 48 OWA SILENT READING TEST is taken by all students.

' ' The Male Animar ' Take college kids, their parents, several professors and a football game, stirr well, bring to a boil and you have the Male Animal. Produced during the first sem- ester, it was the initial dramatic perform- ance of the year. Members of the cast were all experienced thespians, turned in a mem- orable bit of acting. L ' nder the direction of .Martheila Randall, the plot of the Male Animal was followed closely by the amatuers. They w ere ama- tuers in name only, and far worse productions have been presented before the footlights of the great theatres of the country. Players were still rehearsing ten nnnutes before curtain time. The football theme of the " Male Animal " made it a natural for college students.

W ' alberg in February, 1949, brought to a close the career of one of th ' e most respected teachers in Fullcrton. For 22 years a familiar figure on both High School and J. C. Campuses, Mr. AVall)erg was never too bus - to talk music with those sincerci - interested in the art. Although his time w as necessarily much occupied w ith his duties as instructor and department head, he nevertheless found moments to encour- age and advise young people who had chosen music as a field of endeavor. An accomplished violinist, .Mr. AV ' alberg performed in many symphonic and chamber music groups, and, until recent years, often gave solo recitals. .Although the violin and viola were his chosen mediums of expression, he demon.strated a familiarity with all orche.stral instruments which amazed his pupils. No dogmatist, he encouraged self e.xpression in music as well as critici.sm; often played Duke Ellington records for his classes in iMusic Appreciation. It was this open mindcdness, too seldom encountered in the music world, along with his innate honesty, which endeared Harold Walberg to all those fortunate to know him. HAROLD E. WALBERG, for 22 years teacher and friend of young musicians in EuUerton, earned the respect of all who came in contact with him. HILL ROOMS testified to the popularity of Mr. Walberg ' s classes. Ordinarily lifeless courses in music appreciation took on color and interest when he presented live chamber music during ' 47 term. 64 OAD SHOW : VARIETIES yS THREE-A-DAY The X ' arietv revue staged by members of the Music, Drama and Fine Arts departments, un- der sponsorship of AAIS proved so popular with students that performances ere requested by several nearby colleges.

Service away from the United States served as a stimulus to manv ' ets to learn more about the conduct of our affairs on the International Level. UN organization, and consecjuent publicising, led public attention, as never before to Uncle Sam ' s adventures in other pastures. These factors, combined w ith the popularity of Phillip Le Ross as an instructor, insured an interested group for the Monday, Wednesday and Thursday sessions. Unique feature of the course is an organized discussion period each w cek in which class ex- presses opinions on developments in the field of World Politics. Outgrow rh of the class was FJC World Affairs Cli.b. PHILLIP LE ROSS lectures on Poly Science, Econ., as well as Foreign Affairs; is regarded as one of top men in U.S. Political Science field.

Business Education BUSINESS FIRMS SEEK FJC TRAINED EMPLOYEES This department is highly rated by firms who have in their employ people ho were trained here, and equally high when compared to similar divisons in other colleges. Offering training in all branches of business it turns out, year after year, competent, efficient, and ambi- tious graduates to fill positions which are always open to well-trained young people. Modern business demands young minds which are able to grasp opportunity when it appears, and make the most of it. Due to the large number of persons active in business, competition for good jobs is stiff, and most advancement is due to the training and ability of the worker. Courses in Business ad- ministration, advertising, salesmanship, and store operation offer a good background to the pros- pective businessman— and most students have a desire to " be their own boss someday. " DICTAPHONE AND EDIPHONE practice is miportant )art of secretarial training. Donna Johnson and Dorothy ulldeston transcribe directly from these machines.

Instructor Ann Kennedy has prescribed field trips as the practical approach to learning the subject. All have taken eagerly to the field trip principle and much practical know- ledge has been garnered by students. Aiding in acquisition of education has been the lab experiments, in which dissec- tion of frogs, grasshoppers, and fish, have all played a part. Few other courses offer such wide range of study or covers as much ground as the Biology- studies, and even fewer sustain the interest of the scholar to such a degree.

Art Nunn doubles as commissioner of the Eastern Conference in his time off from leading the Hornet basketball and tennis teams. Coach Nunn ' s hoopsters are always in the running for the Conference crown and his racquet- ielders were runners-up for the championship last season. Ed Goddard is another of Fullerton ' s excellent team builders. Goddard, as head coach of the football team, has never been out of the first division in his years of lead- ing the team, and his baseball teams are always in the thick of the fight for top spot in the spring. Harm Forte, one of the latest additions to the Fullerton JC coaching ranks, assists Goddard during football season and is head coach of the track and boxing squads. One of the top line coaches in javsee football. Forte has yet to produce a champion on the cinders, although last year ' s team was runner up to Chaffey for the title.

BOGUS MOUNTIES arrived in style. Pep Rallies Raise Spirit Cheers and songs are an important part of college athletic life. The Pep Club, under the direction of Bob McCorniick, never fails to put on a good show when the game lags. Song and Yell leaders are a colorful part of games, adding to the spirit and fun of the spectators. Pep Club members staged one of the best assemblies of the year before the Mount Sac Game. With frequent recourse to outhouse and shootin ' irons, Fullerton - and - a - half U. beat .Mount Sac 36-0, using six footballs and a skunk, after arriving via the Anaheim Short Line trolley.

Ed carves the cake as Jerry Kehr and Jack Adams watch. BOARDING THE TRAIN, the Hornet traveling squad looked eager at East Los Angeles station. THE 1948 FOOTBALL season was high- lighted by a trek to Ogden, Utah, for a game with Weber Junior college. Follow- ing a rousing send-off on the Fullerton campus, the team members, coaches, man- agers, and reporters climbed aboard the Union Pacific " Utah " to begin the 1000- mile journey. Coach Goddard celebrated his birthday on the train and was surprised with a cake. The dining car was by far the most popular on the train, being attended frequently. Jimrney was considered successful fol- lowing 20-8 victory over the Wildcats. DINNER TIME was always happy time for Hornets. Here they are in diner of first meal on the " Utah. " 108 UTAH SCENERY was one of the highlights of the trip. Here several members of the team are pictured against the countryside.

In the process of raci ing up championships number 99 to 102 for Jimmy Smith, the aquatic stars bested the finest that Southern Cahfornia has to offer. At El Segundo, on March 26, the Hornets took the title of Southern Pacific Senior Indoor AAU Champs from a strong array of swimmers including SC, UCLA, Pasadena AC, and LAAC. The squad, outstanding favorites to win Eastern Conference, Southern California, and National titles, finished first at the Fletcher Relays, (for the fourth time), the Pasadena AC Annual Relays, and set a new SPAAU 880 yd. relay record. CAPTAIN ERNEST POLTE receives trophy for individual high scoring at El Segundo SPAAU meet. CHAMPIONSHIP AWARD goes to team at conclusion of contest in which best Southern Cal swimmers met. WATER POLO IS FAST BECOMING ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR SPORTS ON THE CAMPUS. Perennial winners are turned out by Coach Jimniv Smith, who mentors the aquatic sports on the Fullerton campus. U ' ater polo, fast becoming one of the most popular of ail sports at FJC, is a thrilling display of marine activity. The fame of Smith ' s teams reached a fitting climax in [949 when LIFE magazine sent a photographer to shoot a series of pic- tures of the FJC squad. f!» C vi - r •I »» ' «» %J Samel - - tr 5nnQt szwxc. jiw: li siiiafr nn carL i .-» y ffl ' n • " ( i " i rtr- -v— L ' » ■ ■■i ■■ " .C ■ngrr mr- liangnaMbD- MHSZT 7lic£30ir: i: .-.I ' -i. ftllf jiUl Trr--TTTT- 3G- -mT ! ir " t :- isi2-r n . . Vssr WAA SPORTS Women enter into the spirit of athletic competition at FJC in much the same manner that the men do. They have formed the WAA to further theu- aims in this direction, and under the capable leadership of Bobby Dysinger, they have become one of the most active of all col- lege groups. Almost every type of muscular endeavor has felt the impact of the fair sex ' s entry, with the exception of football, which has vet to become anything but a male sport. Women are beginning to excell at some types of sports, much to the chagrin of the dominant sex. Included in the ever grow- ing category are such pastimes as bowling, archery, skiing, hockey, basketball and Softball. WAA CABINET directs women ' s extra-curricular athletic activities. This year ' s officers were Barbara Rim- pau, Priscilla Seabright, Verla Lee, Virginia Spalding, Carol Mover, Aiary Zinzer, Jean Hawyard, and Jo Goar. rf HOCKEY TEAMS meet squads from other Javsees in spirited contests: FJC gals are rated tops. 121 COACH HARM FORTE lines up his newly-formed boxing team.

AL iMORCH, Demonology major, is radical city editor of Weekly Torch; works on " Torch- light. " Al is not noted for his quiet ways. OMAN " REGGIE " RITCH, former musician is Photography Editor of Annual. He inspired staff with biacksnake whips. MRS. MARY RUSSELL, Editor of Annual Torch keeps house, attends classes and keeps close check on activities of Torch writers. 124 mk JERRY BOULEY, ex-press pho- tographer did professional w ork for Torch. RENT DeAIONTE began as :porter, is now Sports Editor id writer. AL DEACON, darkroom man, did most of developing and printing of pics. HOWARD CHIPMAN rose from photographer to Art editor of weekly in ' 49. JAY FLYNN is feattire writer, also reporter on city ' s News- Tribune. R. A. J. Porter, head man of the ollege print shop, bears the bnmt of le Weekly and Annual, as well as rinting the Pleiades for the High chool and innumerable shop jobs. J I FJC Publications consist of the WEEKLY TORCH, ANNUAL TORCH, and TORCH- LIGHT. The Weekly and the Annual are, ordinarily, products of the Journalism Department, while TORCHLIGHT is yearly presentation of the best efforts of the Creative Writing classes. This year, because of a shortage of would-be jour- nalists the Annual began as an extra-curricular activ- ity, later became a project of Journalism when mem- bers of the staff enrolled in 2-B. The Weekly Torch, was brought forth, after much labor on the part of Bill Williams and J. P. Benjamin, under adverse cir- cumstances for the first semester. Second semester upswing in enrolees lightened the load and made for an improved publication. TORCHLIGHT prints selections from the as- signments in Creative Writing which are judged to be worthy of preservation for future generations and essays from various and sundry English students who show a spark of individuality. Jack Benjamin has brought a varied background and wide e.xpericnce to his Journalism classes, and makes the gathering and dissemination of news a fas- cinating business. ANNUAL TORCH 1949 H RITCH AND BENJAMIN cooked up Life idea. Decision to use offset method was reached after conference with printers. PROBLEMS of printing were placed gently in Mr. Porter ' s lap. Torch staff knew Httle about printing techniques. FIVE VOLUNTEERS constituted editorial staff in early months. Many hours went into studying Life Magazine ' s style of writing essays and captioning pictures. Don Baggott, Reggie Ritch, Mary Russell, Shirley Essary, and Al Morch pioneered this year ' s Torch, but no writ- ing was done during this period. Writers joined ranks during second semester. DUMiMY PAGES were made up before pictures were taken or writing started. Editor Mary Rus- sell found time to do this in spite of heavy class schedule. Page makeup would have been good experience for geometry students-hundreds of lines had to be drawn with mathematical preci- sion so that pics and copy would fit correctly. TV JLRRV BOLLtV presenxs football ream for posterity. Every event of school year was photo- graphed. SCOTTY SAPIRO shot individual portraits; was winner of coveted first prize in ' Graflex contest. AL DEACON was Torch ' s darkroom techni- cian. He usually had more help than he wanted. Two events occur each spring at FJC — the weeds :ome up in the garden and the Annual Torch ap- ears. These happenings have one thing in common - they both mean a lot of work for someone. In ornier years the Torch staff has been large, but this ear it started as a one man proposition and grew radually until in March eight men, women and ypewriters were working night and dav. It began one morning in September u hen Oman Litch wandered into the Torch office in search of place to leave his books. He was waylaid by J. P. enjamin who appealed to his school spirit and con- ed him into taking some pictures for the Annual, rom such a harmless beginning, Ritch soon found imself installed as Picture Editor. Mrs. .Mary Rus- ell was prevailed upon to take over the Editor ' s hair and with Al Morch and Shirley E sary added to be staff the book was laid out alonp the lines of Life B SPRING Torch stumbled, fell together. DeMonte, Rus- sell, Boule -. Ritch, Beazley, Dugger in final assenibl . Photographers lurked about the campus through- out the year, backs bowed under the weight of gadget bags, and took pictures of everything in sight, many of which didn ' t come out. Individual portraits were taken of each student who was spendthrift enough to part with 77 cents. Writing chores piled up at the beginning of the second semester. Brent DeMonte took over the sports section, Ritch laid down his camera and started authoring essays at a furious rate. Lawrence Beazley and Jay Flynn sat down at typewriters and with a continuous stream of cynical remarks wrote pages of " breeze " about classes, activities and campus clubs, in addition to hundreds of picture captions. Type was set and printed by the school print shop, under super ' ision of R. A. J. Porter, and was placed on the layout pages under the proper pictures by Mrs. Russell. This was the end of a job which had everyone fussing and fuming for months. bALbOA Easter Week Draws Hornets To Surf And Sand WARM EASTER ' EEK sun brines FJC lovelvs out of hibernation in hope of capturing tan and man at Bal Thev accomplish both bv lounging on fences and sand during day covered vith such body-browners as coco: batter and oUve oil.
