Text from Pages 1 - 246 of the 1950 volume:

9 5 y » • • • 2 , ix icciuon If you attended Fullerton Junior College during the school year of 1949- 50 you had the privilege of enjoying the kindly administration of Director Wil- liam T. Boyce. This privilege was to be • 4 denied those who followed you, for this year closed a 30-year administration that literally built FJC from the ground up. Dr. Boyce was the guiding spirit in the creation of not only one of the oldest and largest junior colleges in California but takes on great stature as an educa- tional pioneer in this state. Elected di- rector in 1917, Dr. Boyce began work with a small staff on the high school campus. He remained director until 1940 and was reappointed by the Board in 1942. He was a leader in molding the policies and perfecting the organi- zation of the California Junior College Federation and the Southern California Junior College Association. It is to wise, kindly Dr. Boyce that this 1950 Annual is dedicated. NOW I LAY DOWN THE OARS Laying down the oars is not an unhappy ex- perience if the rowing has been good, and if a landing has been made. Coming to Fullerton in 1915 with four years of experience, two years as Principal and teacher of a rural high school in Sand Spring, Maryland, and two years as teacher of Social Science in Whittier College, I began an unbroken record, except for one year on leave, of thirty-four years in the Fullerton Junior College. I think no man was ever hap- pier in his work. I have seen the College popu- lation grow from thirty-two students to its current size of approximately thirteen hundred. More significantly, I have seen the Fullerton Junior College continuously in the foreground of one of America ' s greatest movements in education. My debt of gratitude is deeply felt — gratitude to school trustees, to fellow teach- ers, to secretarial office assistants, to a multi- tude of fine young folk in school, and to the people of the district.

Well — almost officially. There ' s just a little formality first; take this paper, sign it, give it to this desk, go to Station Two; fill this out, sign this, get this approved, go back and do it over, all the tickets are gone, go to Station Three; fill this out, sign this, get this done, this isn ' t right, go see your advisor, who ' s my ad- visor, I don ' t know, hurry up . . . But then it ' s all over, and the sound and fury has passed. Peace be upon you, little freshman; you have become a Hornet in good standing, your cogs have been fitted into the Great All and your life as a student of FJC has begun. Freshman Assembly Stu ie« V)tv ' ,on -nf c — Vo en t e At the beginning of this year I asked if we could all try to be " Good Hornets. " I believe this has been accomplished to a de- gree beyond anyone ' s expecta- tions. Throughout the state, at conventions we attended, many congratulated us on our fine campus and inspiring spirit. While in our own Eastern Con- ference time and again stu- dents from other schools stated that they felt Fullerton was the outstanding college in the con- ference. I can, I believe, speak for everyone affiliated with the col- lege in saying this has been a fine year, especially in the school spirit which has been shown. I am very proud to hove been selected as a representa- tive of such a fine organization Dick Kehne Dick Kehne, Student Body President Bill Bogroff, Vice-President - v A mmen t As a freshman, your first glimpse of the mysterious forces that move behind the scenes of FJC is the annual Freshman As- sembly before regular classes begin. " Of- ficers shmofficers, " you think, relegating them to the depths of High School offi- cialdom. But then you begin to notice well- planned dances, good assemblies, well- publicized sports, and a truly phenomenal integration of college activities. You begin to doubt that the Dean does all this; can it be the Student Government of FJC accomplishing these miracles after all ? Surprising as it may seem, Fullerton ' s Student body officers are conscientious, hard-working and efficient, accomplishing remarkable amounts of work all unknown to the unknowing frosh. You continue on your way through college, with a new con- fidence bordering on blind faith in your elected officers and their ability to smooth the way ahead of you.

The ' Hi ' s ' and ' Hello ' s ' around the campus make every one of us feel glad that we ' re apart of a group with such fine spirit. Let ' s all work together to strengthen our reputation for friendliness and cooperation. " Dean Swenson 2x ectnS As Dean of Men, Dr. Swenson guided and sometimes pushed the masculine student body towards a successful education, as well as donating a large amount of time to athletic events and advising the Hornet Knights. Mrs. Esther Hatch rode a kind of super- visory surfboard on the frothy wave of Ful- lerton ' s women students as they pursued their education (and boy friends! during the school year of 1949-50, in addition to conducting several personal adjustment classes. D. Robert Swenson, Dean cf Men. Mrs. Esther Hatch, Dean of Women. I regard as a high privilege my opportunity to serve the students of Fullerton Junior College as Counselor and Dean of Women. The relationship has enriched my life and I am grateful for the experience. It is my hope that I have been able to contribute at least in some small measure to the basic knowledge, constructive attitudes, and ethical values which constitute your educa- tion. Esther L.

Stonley Worburton, District Superintendent Dear Friends, We hope the memories this 1950 TORCH helps preserve for you will be happy ones. We salute the Class of 1 950 for your splendid con- tribution to the life of our college. We know we can count on the leadership of the Class of 1951 and succeeding groups to develop fully the heritage that is Fullerton Junior College. Congratulations and best wishes to all of you. T. Stanley Warburton Dr. Sheller, popular with students and faculty alike, served successively as classroom teacher, Registrar, and Dean of Men before being named Di- rector of the College for next year. Dear Hornets, Under the distinguished leadership of Dr. William T. Boyce Fullerton Junior College has achieved an enviable reputation among the other |unior colleges of the state and nation. The College today is the shadow of this man. It is our hope that in the years to come the Col- lege may continue to serve the changing needs cf its students as it has so effectively done in the past.

This, of course, seemed a fairly good jest. But then you noticed recent graduates of this institu- tion riding around in new Stutzes and flashing Model A Roadsters with twin raccoon tails. " What incalcula- ble wealth their parents must have 1 " you think. But then somebody tells you that they took Fullerton ter- minal courses and went out and got jobs. Photographic proof of this fact is presented on these pages, to con- vince scoffers and doubters that it can be done. Nurses training given at Fullerton is the best. Numerous grads, such as Joyce Jenkins and Virginio Gallic hove received appointments in various hospitals. k Accounting Debits, credits, outstanding checks wave in the breeze as you ease through accounting. However, on the second day of class the instructor arrives and things get a little tougher. It has been said of Fullerton ' s typing classes that they use up more rubber than the automobile industry in preventing mistakes and more manicures than a Champion Heifer show in banging the keys. The spirit of Laissez faire, private enterprise and free barter pervades you as you enter this room.

Coach Nunn in his 22 year tenure at Fullerton Junior College was a credit to his profession, endearing many young men with the framework of good sportsmanship and competition. While at Fullerton JC, Mr. Nunn turned out a greater number of basketball and baseball championships than any other junior college coach in southern California. To carry on the Nunn tradition, a perpetual Art Nunn trophy has been created to inspire young athletes. The trophy is to be awarded each year to the college ' s most inspirational athlete. !V V-J 5- ?Y .fW " 1 T- " .v- Tit u - % Brent DeMonte ran public address system during all home football games.

The Hornets played 28 games while the Eastern Con- ference code book puts a 25 game ceiling on all athletic schedules. Prospects for regaining the title were extremely bright, with the ' Jackets leading the pack as the deadline for the yearbook approached.

In the picture, vou see a thing that occurs only once a year: the entire annual staff at one place, at one time, with one idea: don ' t blink! The Annual Torch grew in a mysterious fashion akin to the build- ing of coral; the industrious semi-coelenterata gath- ered here are : Editor in chief- Ronnie Muckenthaler Assistant Editor Gordon Simms Art Editor Barbara Barfoot Photography Editor. Jerry Bouley Sports Editor LeRoy Barron Business Manager Elizabeth Stockton oLeftoverd ike (editor roraot Aside from the regular staff there are many behind-the- scene workers who deserve acknowledgment. Kenneth Johnson, brother of Don Johnson, Fullerton ' s terrific athlete, contributed a whole host of basketball pictures making that section professional in appearance. Mrs. Esther Hatch, Dean of Women, aided so much in general information and advice regarding the club section. The bock store handled annual wrappings and the col- office staffs were patient in giving out needed information and handling numberless telephone calls. U.C.L.A. contributed the photo of their campus for the transferable section. Mr. Ken Stevener of the California Yearbook Guild was in charge of the book. His interest was tremendous, assur- ing us an outstanding production. The Los Angeles Engraving Company took care of en- gravings. Trade Press did the printing, and S. K. Smith Company produced the covers. My last thanks go to my teachers who ignored my frequent vacant seat and were quite happy to receive work in May and June that was due in April. Ronnie Muckenthaler Coach Dick Spaulding at Ghost Town, Euena Park. Brent De Monte shows how it ' s done. This picture was judged the winnah over some two-hundred others in the snapshot con- test held on the campus during March.
