' ' ) ) Using the Torch of Knowledge as our guiding light throughout the past year, we, the students of Fullerton Junior College, have tried to further our knowledge and to maintain the high intellectual atmosphere synonymous with our country. Realizing that the future of this country, of the world, and perhaps other worlds lie in the knowledge and ahility that we ohtain and utilize, we have worked both with mind and body to increase our knowledge in the various fields of ou.r choice. i i f it- Student Pubh ' catfon of ullerton Junior College Fullerton, California An open letter Mother and Dad, We, your children, thank you for the many opportunities you have given us. You gave us life itself, and have spent years in guiding and teach- ing us to make the best use of that life. You have worked to make our surroundings better for us. and have helped us develop our potential abilities to do things for ourselves. We realize that the future of this world and of others lie in our hands and we thank you for teaching us to use them.

To help students get better acquainted, and thereby enjoy a more successful college life, FuUerton Junior College plans many activ- ities at the beginning of each year. Some of the activities this year included an assembly, a skating party, a get-acquainted dance and a buffet dance, all with the same theme — " Come Stag, Get-Acquainted. " All of these functions were a success. Rudy Pena entertains at get- acquainted assembly. Students watch diving exhibition at get-acquainted Swim Nite. tJl-1 ' 5 i IK .

Although the board members are selected by the people, they are volunteer workers and Veceive no material compensation for their efforts. Providing for expenses of the district, approving employment of all district personnel, supporting the school administrators and student leaders and controlling the activities and functions of the school campuses in their district are only some of the duties of the board. The sincere efforts of the Board of Trustees is genuinely appreciated by the students and staff of Fuilerton Junior College. MEMBERS OF THE BOARD Joe W. Johnson James Ratcliflfe r Herbert M.

Fullerton Junior College believes in a self-government student-body and in a strong, rich student activity program designed to provide opportunities for participation by all students. We the students, who are the members of the Associated Student Body, do this through the Student Commission. We elect from ourselves members to serve on this Commission and to run all student afiairs. Being a self-supported student body, the Student Commission plans a budget of about S85,0OO annually to finance non-classroom activities of the college to the greatest overall benefit of our- selves. Among some of the functions of college life financed by the student body are the college newspaper, THE HORNET, the yearbook, THE TORCH, handbooks, dramatics, uniforms, schol- arship grants, student center furniture, and many other facets of college life. We bought, through the Student Commission, the Fairchild Engraving Machine, which saves the student body S2,000 annually. 27 Dear Student, Graduation is coming and believe me when I say that on the last day of school when the time comes for a final departure from this campus, I ' m not going to walk slowly from our hallowed halls with nostalgic glances over the sh oulder to capture a fleeting glimpse of the spot where many events of the preceding two years took place; I ' m going to run, run, run. Not running to get away, but running to go on — to go on with education because what I have learned in the past year has only indicated how little we really know and how much is before us if we really seek it. Education is a life- long process — and I do not feel that learning ought to have immediate results, show a profit, or lead to success. The primary function of education is, rather, to benefit the entire personality and lead to a richer life so that men can appreciate the riches of the past and live creatively in the present and future. And if I am to appreciate the past, the present and the future have, of necessity, to be sought after. I am sure that the rest of you feel the same way. 1 feel sure the past year will be the most memorable year of my life, and considering people usually remember the happy events of life, this should indicate how fulfilling the year has been. It is indeed a great feeling to represent the college for all the students — as marching across the football field to give the student body president of Orange Coast the Golden Smudge Pot after the football team played like champs, or escorting the Homecoming Queen, or presenting the President ' s Trophy to the Hornet Knights, or hearing the shouts of joy and the screaming of the Kappas as I announced they had won the Spring Sing, or even being warned of the plot of a small group to kidnap me and leave me in Crestline in the middle of winter with only a hula skirt and a smile. Sometimes I would wonder if there was a reward for the time and energy spent, but it ' s not important now. For what you have given me can ' t be replaced, taken away, or given to someone else. It has been a great year and if I have been able to help you in some small way, it ' s because you all have done great things for me. I owe you a debt of gratitude. Thank you so very much. Bob Wagner ASB Officers Betty Eakin performed the numerous secretarial duties throughout the year. Betty Eakin, actively contributing to the student government on campus, plans to go to Orange County State next year to continue her education. John Cooper, taking over the job of ASB Treasurer at the second semester, also worked in the school library. He won a scholarship at the end of the year. Jerry Vanover, Vice-President, was in charge of presenting the fine assemblies at FJC. Jerry Vanover was elected to the office of ASB Vice-President in the fall of 1961. He is an active member of the Artist Lecture Service Committee and the Bill of Rights Committee. He was in charge of all Homecoming acti ities, and emceed all student assemblies. Jerry is a member of the Hornet Knights, and won the Berton Foundation Scholarship . ward. He was chosen Mr. FJC at the dance sponsored by the AWS. John Cooper kept the finances, handling the enormous budget for iht Associated Student Body. 29 Student Stevie Strasser, Commissioner of Rallies, reads the minutes of a meeting while Tom Eastman, Commissioner of Athletics, looks on. Tom Eastman, Commissioner of Athletics, also held that post at Garden Grove High School in I960, and was Athlete of the Year at GGHS for that year. At FJC he has belonged to the Knights men ' s club and has played varsity baseball. Tom is a nineteen-year-old sociology major, and plans to attend a state college. He applied for the office for the experience in student govern- ment, and to be of service to the student body. Tom Erwin, Freshman Class President, and Ken James, Sophomore Class President, share a joke on their way to the commission meeting. Linda Cosgriff, AWS President, points out a reference to Melissa Dahl, Commissioner of Publicity. Melissa Dahl, Commissioner of Publicity, is a secretarial major. She attended schools in Manhattan Beach and Amarillo, Texas, before moving to Anaheim. She is rwenty years old, and plans to go to modeling school. Missy was nominated for Woman of the Year, and was one of three finalists for the top honor. She applied for the office because she was interested in student government, and the job appealed to her; she also wanted to do her part for the betterment of the college. 30 Commission Bob Wagner, ASB President, is a veteran of the Air Force. He traveled most of the continental countries. After his honorable discharge he returned to FJC to major in Business Administration-Accounting. Bob served FJC as ASB Treasurer during the 1960-61 year, and was ASB President this year. He plans to enter Berkeley in the fall of 1962. Bob ran for election at the request of several friends and clubs on campus, and also to avail himself of the opportunities of leadership offered. Student commission meetings, open to all interested students, offer a chance to see the student government actually at work. Carleen Simonson, Editor of the weekly HORNET, also served on the student commission. She is a graduate of Fullerton High School, where she won the merit service award upon graduation, plus several journal- istic honors. At FJC Carleen has also belonged to Alpha Gamma Sigma and Beta Phi Gamma. She is a rwenty-one-year-old journalism major, and plans to continue in that field after completing her education. .r - Carleen Simonson, HORNET Editor, and Missy Dahl, Commissioner of Publicity, work on Bill of Rights Week. Nick Stagliano, Freshman Commissioner-at-Large, is a New York import. He was very aaive in student government in high school, and also participated in many sports, winning eight medals, and a trophy for AAU Swimming, plus a medal for AAU Speed Skating. Nick ran for office because he likes people, and makes friends very easily. He felt well qualified for the job. Machine Drafting and Design is the major of the twenty-year-old bundle of vitality. He plans to enter that field after fulfilling his military obligation upon completion of his education.

The Associated Women Students is one of Fullerton ' s most outstanding organizations. Its aim is to unite the women students on campus and to provide activities for them. AWS enables the women students to function as a democratic body to regulate and control the activities of the women student body. The 1961-62 school year found AWS extremely active. Among their activities was the annual Girl Ask Boy Dance, " Cotton Candy Carnival, " held March 30 in the Student Center. They also spon- sored the Mother-Daughter Tea, the annual Marriage Assembly, the White Elephant Sale, and the Easter Hat Decorating Contest held on April 12. They still found time, however, to collect money to donate to an orphanage in Korea, supported partially by Mrs. Logan Wheatley, wife of Mr. Logan Wheatley, District Administrator. They gave a party at Fairview Mental Hospital in Costa Mesa, for a ward of small children. Climaxing the activities at the end of the year the AWS held FJC ' s sixth annual " Women of Dis- tinction " ceremony. One hundred and sixty girls were honoured at this ceremony and Linda Cosgriff was chosen " Woman of the ' ear, " an honour she well deserved. 32 AWS officers discuss plans for their booklet, " As Women See. " Barbara Jones, first semester Freshman Representative and Mike Newland, first semester representative of Theta Nu Theta, compare results of Girl Ask Boy Dance with Miss Doris Lokken (center), advisor. Striking a familiar pose. Dean Marguerite Waters, AWS advisor. 33 AM5 The Associated Men Students was formed to draw the men students at FJC closer together into an organized democratic unit. The AMS strives to present to its men activities throughout the school year that they may enjoy, and gi ■es them the opportunity to voice their opinions on school matters. " Now this is the way I warn ii done, says Kon Mankin, efficient AMS President. The Owl Howl, an after-the-game dance sponsored by the AMS, had a staggering turnout of 1,100 people, the largest crowd to attend a dance in the history of the school. An assembly was sponsored by the AMS featuring a singing quintet called The Nuggets. The Nuggets are now recording for the Capitol Record Company. John Lindsay and Ron Mankin admire the AMS Scholastic Award plaque. The Social Service Club Scholastic Award was presented by AMS to Theta Nu Theta, a service sor- ority on campus. The Annual Men of Distinction banquet, honoring twenty-five men students, was held at the Yorba Linda Country Club on May 24th.

ASSEMBLY This year the Awards Assembly was held on May 31 at the Auditorium. A large number of awards was presented to the winners for both scholarship and service. The ASB officers tradi- tionally took their oaths at this assembly from Dr. Sheller, President of the College. The song and yell leaders for the coming year- were also introduced. Those who received awards were: Charles Bailey — Freshman Chemistry Award; William Naylor — Freshman Mathematics Award; Phillip Schreiner — Freshman Physics Award; Collen Riley — W.A.A.

The Marine Band One of the assemblies which brought great excitement and pleasure to music lovers was the performance of the El Toro Band at the Auditorium on May 10th. The band presented beautiful music which included old fashioned classics and modern jazz which greatly enter- tained the audience who awarded the band with great applause at the end of the performance. 37 Sophomore Class The gavel and nameplate are symbols of the oflSce held by camera shy Sophomore Class President, Ken James. In Spring of 1961 the Sophomore Class election was held. Campaigning was spirited, and there was a lot of fun for everyone involved. Jim " Pineapple " Coen was elected Sophomore Presi- dent, and acted in that capacit) ' until December when he resigned his post to serve full-time on the Fullerton Police Force. Stepping up to the position of President was former Sophomore Vice- President Ken James, a Pre-Optometry major at FJC. He is a I960 graduate of Anaheim High School, and plans to continue at Los Angeles Col- lege of Optometry or the University of California. He would like to do graduate work in Ophthal- mology. This is Ken ' s first experience as a class officer. Paul Kerschner, filling the position of Vice-President at the second semester, is from York, Pennsyl- vania, and attended Georgetown University in Washington D.C. last year. Paul is very interested in student government, and has held several offices in high school. A Pre-Law student, he plans to go on to Orange County State. Norma Dickerhoof, Secretary, is majoring in merchandising and selling. Colleen O ' Brien became Sophomore Treasurer at the beginning of the fall semester, taking the place of Siglinda Johnstone, who left FJC. Colleen is an active member of Theta Nu Theta, and is major- ing in Pre-Pharmacy. She was one of the three top nominees for Woman of the Year, and plans to complete four years of study at the Universitj ' of the Pacific in Stockton, and then enter some field of research pharmacy. She finds that serving as Sophomore Treasurer is interesting and challenging. 38 Sophomores ended the year in a flurry of meetings, fittings for caps and gowns, readying things schol- astically for graduation, rehearsing for and par- ticipating in graduation ceremonies. The sophomore breakfast was held the morning of graduation. The class gift was an outside clock to be placed on one of the buildings around camp- us for the convenience of students. Dr. Dudley was in charge of FJC ' s caps and gowns, which are used for several occasions, in- cluding graduation, baccalaureate, and choir per- formances. Renee Hodge tries on her cap and gown, eager!) .iniitipaiing graduation. Dr. Dudley, in charge of caps and gowns, issues one to Carleen Simonson, while Joe Tatar helpfully places the cap on her head. 19 Kathryn Berkey Mary Ann Beacock . - ' ■ Pat Beale Barbara Blanckmeyer Vada Bloom Beverly Bates Victor Belprez Libby Bogan Nancy Booth 40 { iv Dale Burt Bonnie Burkhart Susan Brewer Kay Bonasky Gail Carlson Emily Canada Mary Campbell Lynn Campbell fune Cain Norval Chilman Ciarv Cave Wilma Castro Ethel Carter 41 Katliennt; Clark Greta Couper Karen Crowe Cathy Cole Katherine Coleman Linda Cosgriff Lisa Couper Harold Courson 4 Sf r ' « " S-i 1 f Jr V Delores Courtwright r 1 Priscilla Cranston Margaret Curtice Melissa Dahl 42 Dorcnc Fcldkamp Joyce Emerson 43 Lois Ferguson Cecilia Gallardo Shirley Galling Lynda Gernet Norman Garcia Dan Gilpin Sharon Griggs 44 Sharon Grundy Garland Grimsley Barbara Hamilton Sue Haag Linda HattieM w4 Sandra Hafer Beth Hansen I Victor Hausmaniger Lewis Hanson Helen Hawkins Robert Harrison 45 Gerene Headrick James Heath ' ' ' fifm!0 ' ' Gail Henke Alvina Hernandez Robert Holstrom Gail Hull Nola Hicks Linda Hodges V: -1 David Hunt 46 Linda Kaplan i7 - v John Lindsay Sandy Logsdon Sylvia Liebi Betty Light James Magill 48 Carol Mueller Marilyn Muckenthaler Margaret Ann Milton 49 Nancy Ostendorf Tom Neill Yvonne Payonk Jane Pearson Constance Nelson Lynette Pearson 50 pat Rcvnolds Gordon Redmond 51 Marlene Richardson Anne Robbins Maureen Rogers William Rupp Michael Sellers Kathy Sens Micky Sharp Sharon Schmidt Carol Sue Shelton Paul Smith 52 Joan Tellian Andra Teeter 53 Rita Vander Hoek John Vekasy James Walker Adell Vanderwest Janna Visser Jerry Vanover Jim Van Tuyle sl r Carole Voight Kth Robert Wagner Pat Watson 54 r Shirlev Wildman " m i Jiuqut Whitehead Michael West George Weigand % Barbara Woodson Dora Wolin Dale Wilson Marilyn Willmarth Gary ' aruss 55 " May I help you? " asks friendly Tom Erwin, Fresh- man Class President. Freshman Class All FJC students with less than 28 completed units are eligible to participate in freshman activities; but only those enterprising students who make an effort to join in actually reap the benefits of the work and fun involved with Fresh- man Class projects. This year the Freshmen Class sponsored the FJC Sweat- shirt sale and an after-the-game dance, " Sweatshirt Swing. " A class rally was held during the second semester. Each fall the freshman elect their class officers. For most it is their first exposure to college campaigns. This year there were many candidates for the seven freshman offices. David Louvar, elected President, resigned in December to serve in the United States Navy. Freshman Class officers are SEATED: Mari Lou Popevis, Treasurer; Sandi Malmrose, Vice-President; Tom Erwin, President; Linda Brow n, Sec- retary. STANDING: Emil Heinze, Nick Staglino, and Don Kelly, Commissioners-at-Large. Helpful sujigestitms on how It) cast the precious ( te are common on the FJC campus at election time. Moving up to ably fill the position of Presi- dent was Thomas Erwin, former Freshman Vice-President. Tom is a 1961 graduate of Fullerton High School. His major is Pre-Law, with an eye to a career in international law. He feels that acting as Freshman President offers a chance to make friends as well as gain experience for his future occupation. Sandi Malmrose, an elementary education major from Anaheim High School, served as Vice-President the second semester. She is also active in the Hornet Christian Fellowship. Linda Brown served as Freshman Class Secre- tary. She graduated from Rancho Alamitos in 1961, and is majoring in Pre-Dental Hygiene. Linda plans to spend a year in Europe after finishing school. She is very interested in school government and finds it a good way to know exactly what is going on in school. Mari Lou Popevis, Freshman Class Treasurer, is a philosophy major, and plans to go on to Berkeley. She would like to be a lawyer and states her reason for entering school politics as her great enthusiasm for dealing with people. Commissioners-at-Large are Fmil Heinze, Nick Stagliano, and Gary Mumper in the first semester. Don Kelly replaced Gary Mumper the second semester after the latter ' s resignation. Most student officers agree that participation in student go ernment is a rewarding way to serve the school as well as the individual. And if elected . . . " is a familiar phrase at the election rally. Shou ing Off Their Talent , . Larry Woodward demonstrates how a woman puts on her stockings. Setting the pace for the fast-moving talent show was our own ASB President, Bob Wagner, who displayed his great skill on the piano — " Chopsticks " with two fingers! Peggy Menaugh was next on the program, singing three songs from Broadway shows. Terry Watts presented his rendition of Rachmaninoff ' s Prelude in G minor, a beautiful piano piece. Dancing to a more modern number was graceful Judy Fisher. The high point of the show was Larry Woodward, cleverly demonstrating in pantomime how a woman dresses for a date. Cathie Stamen danced to the stirring sound of " Exodus. " The Yorkshiremen — Ronnie Sheeheen, Gene Cook, and Andy Neswick — started feet tapping with their show-stop- ping presentation of several popular songs. The Pizza Feed at the beginning of the year offered all students a chance to get to know each other. Freshmen get acquainted with t he school and with other students at tlie Pizza Feed. Peggy Menaugh sings " I Enjoy Being a Girl! 58 Getting to know each other and becoming more familiar with FjC kept new students busy at the Freshman Breakfasts in September. Getting Acquainted With FJC Rudy Pena, FJC student, entertained freshmen with his outstanding piano artistry. ASB Vice-President Jerry Vanover gave a welcome speech to the freshmen. 59 Night School Darkness comes, and the day ' s work is done. The campus is clear of students; classes are over. But then the parking lots fill, lights go on, students once again converge on the FJC campus. Night School has begun. Most of the classes are the same as those ofifered during the day, many with the same instructors. But there are differences — differences vividly seen. A lamp lights a dark hallway. Through open windows a class is seen, viewing a color film. Lights illuminate the Hornet statue. The astronomy class studies the unique wonders of the heavens. The lighied hallway of the business building frames the music building seen in the distance. Mr. Willis, FJC Physical Science instructor, demonstrates telescope technique to Ian Keith. Campus life at FJC begins in the busy administration building. 60 There are other differences, too. Some teachers claim that students in Night courses do better work. ( " My Night Class understood this theory in 10 minutes! " ) Other teachers see no difference.( " Let ' s see if you can do better than my Night Class did. " ) A few of the classes themselves are offered only at night, such as Police Science, Certified Professional Sec- retary Review, Pre-Dental Techniques, and Dress De- signing. Also offered is Parent Education. Night School is a different world than that known by day students. Yet it is a vital part of Fullerton Junior College. Gar ' Read and Kendrick Trapp relax over coffee in the Hive. The Hornet siaiuc is a striking symbol of Fullerton Junior College. 61 i ftjU vwrngC ATHLETICS 63 jV ' a j-- " ' ' . . .

Fullerton acquired a new football coach this )ear, and what a coach he turned out to be! Hal Sher- beck, a graduate of Montana State and Freshman Football coach there last year, came to FJC last September and inherited a losing team. Last year ' s Hornets had posted a dismal 2- ' ' record, and about the best anyone hoped for this year was a 4-4-1. Sherbeck dazzled everyone this year bv coaching the Blue and Gold to a 6-3 regular season record. This was good enough for third place in the Eastern Conference and a bowl in- vitation. After the opener against Bakersfield, the pessi- mists were really wringing their crying towels. But a week later, Sherbeck was carried off the field on the shoulders of a jubilant Hornet team, victf)rs over a highiv-favored Cerritos team. Ful- lerton went on to a third place finish in the league. The season ended rather sadly, ith the Hornets plaving their hearts out in a losing cause to Sacramento in the Orange Show Bowl.

Sac 7 20 FJC Santa Ana .47 16 FJC Orange Show Bowl Sacramento 27 7 FJC 65 BAKERSFIELD (0-50) New coach Hal Sherbeck, received a rude welcome to California in the Hor- net ' s opener against Bakersfield. The Renegades, led by their huge line, gained more than 300 yards against the Hornets, while rolling to a 50-0 victory. The Fullerton line, though outweighed, produced some outstanding defenders, and Ken Acton ' s punting was a highlight of the game. Ott (43) and Conulock, (30), stop a Bakersfield back. Rice (11) chased out of bounds by a Cerritos defender. Pease (42) coming up to block. CERRITOS (22-14) The upset of the year, as far as Fullerton was concerned came in the second game of the season as the Hornets knocked off highly rated Cerritos, 20-14. There were stars ga- lore in the line, but the Hornet backfield was superb. Owens, Miller, and Pease all had a great night. In the words of the players and coach Sherbeck, it was a team victory. 66 Scholten (71), Hoffman (75), Conner (85), Comstock (30), gang up on a Cerritos back. CITRUS (22-0) Fullerton won its first league game, gaining 300 yards in the process, by trouncing Citrus 22-0. Pease gained 109 yards, and Ott gained 93 yards, to lead the Hornet rushers. The FJC line play was outstanding, with Moretta, Pace, Hogg, Schoner, and Noland opening huge holes in the Citrus line. RIVERSIDE (12-28) The Hornets lost a heart-breaker to Riverside, 12-28. The Hornets looked terrific in the first half, and held a 12-7 lead at halftime, on touchdowns by Ott and Ortmayer. But the Tigers were not to be denied, and led by their great backs, Jones and Davis, tallied three times in the last half. Owens (10) busts through Citrus line. Hogg (53) assists. Crunch!

CHAFFEY (28-0) FJC was out to avenge a 41-0 loss to Chafifey in I960, and they did it quite handily by whipping the Panthers, 28-0. Rice and Owens faked the Chafifey defense out of its shoes, and the Hornet defense, led by Kendrick, Schoner, Noland, and Godden, stopped the Pan- thers cold. Pease, Owens, Comstock, and Ott scored.

Santa Ana, on probation and ineligible for a bowl bid, took their frustrations out on the Hornets. All-Amer- ican fullback Keith Luhnow rushed for 270 yards and 3 touchdowns to lead the Dons to a 47-16 victory over the Blue and Gold. It was the worst loss that FJC had ever suffered in a Turkey Day clash. Fullerton ' s two touchdowns were scored by Owens and Ortmayer. Ott (-43) follows Miller (30.

This year the Fullerton Hornets ' hoop squad provided the fans with both. First was that of not winning the championship like last years team; but while not being champs, the Hornets surprised prac tically everybody by winning half of their games and ending up in their high position (third place) in the Eastern Conference. One sure reason the Hornets did so well was the appoint- ment of new head coach Claude Retherford. Coach Reth- erford not only brought his many years of successful high school coaching but also many laurels as a player in college. Some include: 815 points for three years and also starting in 74 straight games. Top: Bill Jeffries shown above grabbing a rebound against a Mt. Sac. player.

Bill Morris scores two points against the Mounties, Hor- nets Dan Miller and Ken Renaud of Mt. Sac. get ready for possible rebound. 74 Although fielding a relatively inexperienced team in his first year, coach Rctherford promised that his would surprise other teams during league play. Not only did the Hornets surprise people but thev ended up in a tie for third, keep- ing a Hornets record intact of not finishing lower than third since 1946 when coach Bill Spaulding was at the helm. Coach Retherford and his Hornets started out the year in real heart-breaking fashion as they were nipped by Long Beach on a last second basket (51-49). Bill Morris, thought by manv to ha e to carry the whole load did just about that by popping in 25 points. The teams first victory didn ' t come until a rematch with The Vikings from Long Beach. With Morris pouring in 24 digits the Hornets made it look easy 80-63. Win number two came only four days later as the Hornets stomped Santa Monica 93-67. Dan Miller (Most improved player on the team) joined Morris in the high scoring parade with 19 to Morris ' 26 points.

Bill Darnell misses in vain effort for rebound against Chaffey, Hornets won 78-57. Morris, who is looking on scored 22 points. 75 Chuck Beachamp seems to be holding on to the shoulders of Tom Maxwell from Citrus. Hornets were trounced by the Eastern Conference champ. After losing to a strong Fresno team, the Hornets sought to defend their title of champs of the Chaffey Tournament. Morris was chosen on the All-Tournament team. The Hor- nets were also dethroned in the Santa Ana Tourney by San Mateo (43-39). Morris again was honored on the select team. Heading north for the next three games the Hornets were victorious in two out of the three. With Morris blistering the nets the Hornets defeated San Francisco and Contra Costa while losing to Vallejo Junior College by three points. With the start of the league about to get under way, the Hornets were rated no higher than sixth by most observers, but little did they know that coach Retherford had some surprises in store for them; but after the first three games people were wondering if the Hornets were ever going to win. Playing inspirational ball, the Hornets scalped the San Bernardino Indians 53-52 (close shave). Morris as usual came through with 21 points. Jim Starr however scored the winning bucket. After a heart-stopping defeat to Orange Coast 64-62, the Hornets readied themselves for their bitter rival Santa Ana. The Dons have been after a Hornet victory (at Fullerton) since 1944 and were sure this was the year. As it turned out it never came as Morris scored 30 points to help hand the Dons a 70-69 defeat. The Hornets closed the first round with a defeat at the hands of Riverside. The second round was a little different than the first as the Hornets started by thrashing Chaffey 78-57. Morris, Miller, Starr and Jeffries combined for a spirited team effort. The next four games were probably the greatest perform- ances by a single Hornet player in Fullerton History. Bill Morris went gun shot happy as he scored 43, 39, 34, and 30 points for a total of 146 and an average of better than 36 points a game; easily the best ever witnessed by Hor- net rooters. The 43 points scored by Morris were against league champ- ion Citrus. It tied one record and broke another. Morris broke the record of 36 points by a Hornet in a league game. This was shared by four others. The 43 tied a team record for a single game (league or other wise). Leonard Guinn, who gave teams fits last year also scored 43 points in one game. Preparing to go around two Citrus players. Bill Morris of the Hornets shows the form he used to score 43 points and tie a school record. 76 With one game remaining and needing 21 points to break the league record for most points e er scored, Morris truly showed everyone that he was worthy of that honor by popping in 33 for a total of 377 in 14 and a fabulous average of 26.9. For the year Morris scored 710 in 28 games and an average of 25.3 (another record). Morris by the way fouled out only once the whole year; tjuite a tribute to anyone. During the teams awards banquet, Morris walked off with the most valuable award; Miller was chosen most im- proved; and Chuck Beachamp was the outstanding fresh- man on the team. When time came for the selection of the All-League teams, coaches and sports writers were only sure of one thing — that of Bill Morris as Player Of The Year. This is the second straight year the honor has gone to a Hornet; last year the great Edgar Clark was the pride of the E. C. Yes, Bill Morris has got to be remembered as long as bas- ketball is played here at Fullerton Junior College. Dave Tliompson stretthes out o er two Chalfey players during the Panthers Tourney.

Leading his team to a second place finish in the league finals, Coach Tom Tellez ended his first year at the helm with a few smiles but also with a few sighs. The Hornets, state champions last year, were " doped " to win the league finals, but some come- through performances by the Santa Ana Dons gave them the championship, and all the Hornets got was a quick start on summer vacation. The Hornets had one of the best runners in the school ' s history. Jan Underwood was the whole show at the state meet for the Hornets. He took second in the mile and placed fourth in the 880. Underwood was the only one from Fullerton. In the league meet here is how Hornet athletes did: Underwood: Second in the 880 and second in the mile. Cliff Slobad: Second in the 100 and third in the 220. Brig Owens: Third in the 100 highs, and fourth in the 220 lows. Dick Runyon: First in the 220 lows. Jerry Nethery. Fifth in the 220 lows. Dick Huffman: Fifth in the javelin. Ray Reeves: Tie for third in pole vault. Bob Preston: Third in the broad jump. Jim Kelly: Sixth in the broad jump. Bob Schoner : Third in the shot-put. Dean Dyer: Fifth in the shot-put and second in the discus. Bill Neville: Si.xth in the shot-put and third in the discus. Jim Smith : Sixth in the discus.

Bottom is Mel Matsukanc, who exceeded 22 feet in the broad jump. 79 Iron Toters Second in EC Finishing second in the Eastern Confer- ence Tournament was the highlight of Fullerton JC ' s Golf Team. In this tourney, the Hornets wound up only one point back of Chafifey. This was with a five-man team. Ted Lyford was the medalist in the tourney. He tied Bob Lewis of Chaffey, but in the play-off hole Lyford shot a birdie and was home free. Coach Hal Sherbeck and four golfers made the trip to the state Tournament. Among those who accompanied Coach Sherbeck were Lyford, Fletcher Dickin- son, Jim Raffy, and Ted Vaughn. The Hornets were eighth in the state after the points were tallied. Lyford was chosen the team ' s most valu- able player and Dickinson was voted the team captain. Others on the team were Bob Whipple and Earl Vonder. Coach Sherbeck will have to look for more talent as none of his players will be back. Pictured are foursome who represented Fullerton at the Golf State Tourney.

Starting from scratch with a new coach and practically a whole new team, Fullerton JC ' s Cross Country team didn ' t set the league on fire but did make itself be heard of. Tom Tellez, former coach at Buena Park High School, was the " lucky " person chosen to form a winning team with only one returning letterman, Jan Underwood. Coach Tellez took over the reins after Jim Bush transferred to Occidental College. When Bush left, so did Harry McCalla, who was counted on to help Underwood provide the win- ning combination. But with McCalla gone. Underwood was forced to carry the whole load. With Underwood running wild on Coach Bush ' s track team last year, he was expected to run away with the in- dividual championship in the Cross Country Finals. But track and Cross Country are two different sports, llnder- wood did manage to cop sixth place in the League Finals and seventh in the Southern California Finals. The Hor- nets, as a team, ended fourth in the Eastern Conference. Coach Tellez expects brighter things to come next year as five lettermen will return. Back to lead the Hornet attack will be Roy Shallenberger, Dorman George, Les Weaver, Bill Swintkowski, and Bob Buckland. Jan I ' nderwood was the team captain as well as the squad ' s most valuable player. 81 Up and over is the only way one can describe this photo as Rhahim Javanmard demonstrates one of his many tactics on teammate Dave HoUinger. FJC Wrestlers Impressfve in Initial Season Completing a successful season in its first year of competition, wrestling at FuUerton is now an established sport. Led by two of the outstanding wrestlers in the state, the Hornets compiled a season record of seven wins, five losses, and one tie. Rhahim Javanmard and Dave HoUinger were responsible for the Hornets being heard of in the tournaments around Southern California. Coach Oran Breeland has nothing but praise for both Javanmard and HoU- inger. Both were due to come back for another year but a new league rule will prohibit out-of-state athletes (over 21 years of age) to compete on the junior college level. Coach Breeland is optimistic about next year and feels his team will do all right without Javanmard and HoUinger. Back to help Breeland prove his prediction will be Bruce Jones, Mike Squibb, Bill Does, Lon Records, just to mention a few. All but Does were consolation Champs in the Eastern Conference Tournament. To get back to Javanmard and HoUinger, here briefly is what each did this year. HoUinger compiled a season record of 34 wms ana only 3 losses. He was champion of his division (130 lbs.) in the UCLA Tournament, Cal Poly Tourney and the E.C. Tourney. He was fourth in the Naval Training Center Invitational and third in the State; quite an accomplishment. Javanmard was also champion of the same Tour- neys as HoUinger and was chosen Most Valuable wrestler in all three. His season record reads 34 wins and 2 losses. In the Naval Center Tourney Javanmard was third, losing only to the AAU (Athletes of Associated Universities) champ and the Big Ten (considered the toughest league in the nation) champ. In the State Tourney, Rhahim was ready to run away with all the marbles when an injur}- forced him to forfeit his final match and the championship. Both Javanmard and HoUinger were honored at the end of the season with Javanmard named Most Valuable and HoUinger honored as the team ' s captain. Left to right: Jerry Garrity, Jim Shubin, Dave HoUinger, Fred Schubbert, Bill Does, Earnest Ullery, and Coach Breeland.

Badminton Team fn Undefeated Season FuUerton JC ' s badminton team completed an undefeated season under the guiding eye of Coach Miss Ambling. The Hornets compiled a perfect 5-0 re- cord in the league. In the Women ' s Division, Gretchen Im- hoff was voted the team ' s most valuable and Garland Griinsley was chosen most improved. Miss Imhoffwas the team ' s top women ' s singles player. In the Men ' s Division, Ken Allan was most valuable, and Mike Steenberger was most improved. Allan was the team ' s top men ' s singles player.

Most Valuable - Jim Busch Team Captain - Harold Kelli Tenth Straight For Smith ' s Creu Winning Eastern Conference championships is beginning to become a habit for Coach Jimmy Smith and his Water Polo men. This year was no exception. Coach Smith and his crew sported a perfect 5-0 record in league play while amassing a 24-6 record for the en- tire year. After completing the league in great form, the poloists quickly set their sights on the Southern California Championship, and three victories later they proudly wore that crown. The Hornets beat Los Angeles City College, 12-8; Cerritos, 7-6; and nipped Long Beach, 6-5 in the finals. Aces of the championship squad were Jim Busch and Harold Kelly. Busch was voted most aluable, and Kelly was chosen team captain. Others who were high in the eyes of Coach Smith were Wyn Condick, Jack Currie, Jerry Esslinger, Frank Harlan, and Bob Hor- vath. Pictured are members of the Hornet Water Polo squad who swam their way to the Southern Californi.i championship. 84 BOTTOM ROW, L. to R.: Dennis Nelson, Lonnie Lennington, Terry Esslinger, Buzz Beasley, Roy McMichael and Coath Jimmy Smith.

Swmmevs Hove Strong Individuals Coming close but not close enough was the slogan of Coach Jimmy Smith and his swimming squad. The Hornets led the rest of the league after the preliminaries in the swimming championship but when the finals had been held and total points were recorded, the Hornets found themselves in second place behind the powerful Orange Coast Pirates. The Hornets were 6-1 for league dual meets (losing only to Orange Coast) and ended with a 10-6 over-all rec jrd for the year. Several individuals from Fullerton were awarded Ail-American mention for their perform- ances throughout the year. Bill Barnett set tvvo school records. They were in the 200 yard back stroke (2.13:9) and in the 200 yard individual medley (2.14:0). Buzz Beazley and Wyn Condict were both outstanding in the 50 yard free style with times of 23.0 and 23.5, respectively. A relay team of Barnett, Beazley, Condict and Roy McMichael swam to a fast 3.29:9 clocking, good for All- American mention. Next year, Barnett will not return but Beazley, Condict, McMichaels, and Coach Smith will return so the Hornets can be expected to give all the teams in Southern California a run for their money. 85 Tennis Team Ends in Second Spot U ins EC Tournetj Ending up second in league play but in a tie for the Con- ference Tourney was the highlight for the Fullerton Junior College tennis team. Coach Hardy Rollins and his team lost the league title for the first time in four years. Citrus took over the reign vacated by the Hornets. In the Conference Tourney, the Hornets proved that they were out to show they were still the pride of the league as two Hornets, John Allgood and Bob Hall, met for the singles championship. The regular season saw the Hornets being stomped on by the champion Owls. Individually, the Hornets did all right. Allgood and Hall got as far as the Southern California Tourney but were ousted. Stan Kleiner and Neil Stenton got as far as the opening round of the state Tourney but they were ousted in the opening round. Next year. Coach Rollins expects Allgood to once again lead the Hornet attack. Also Dave Smitt and Able Castillo are counted on to help out. John Allgood, ace of this year ' s Hornet tennis team, is shown during a recent workout. Allgood is a freshman and is expected to lead the Hornet attack next season.

Horsehiders End up Fifth Completing his first year at the helm. Coach Mike Sgobba probably would rather forget about it and concentrate on next season. Coach Sgobba ' s baseball squad ended up with a not too hot 8 wins, 19 losses, and one tie record, good for fifth ] lace (5-9) in the Eastern Con- ference. The Hornets actually didn ' t look as if they were going to fare as badly, but during the Easter vacation managed to lose all four practice games. After the vacation was no picnic either, as the horsehiders won only one of their remaining league games. Looking at the brighter side of things, the Hornets had Nick Aversa named to the All-Eastern Conference first team. Tom Eastman was named to the second team. Aversa was the team ' s top stick with a .290 year average and a .340 league mark. Next top batter was Ben Fischer who batted .315 in league and .260 for the year. The only other player to bat over the .300 mark in league play was Jim Lail with a .312 mark. Nick Aversa, Dick .Allan, and Ben Fischer were instrumental in leading the Hornets at the plate throughout the year and during league play as well.

Intramurals were termed a great success by Commissioner of Athletics Tom East- man and Advisor Mike Sgobba. The biggest attraction was the boxing where Dave Lewis won over Rich Amon. This was in the heavyweight finals. In the football league, the GDI ' s were champs. Basketball saw Tellez All-Stars winning the marbles. In Volleyball, the Isolations proved to be best and in soft- ball, the Road Runners were champs. There was even a bowling league where Dave Scheisly proved to be the best indi- vidual bowler.

Builders of Building spirit for the school and leading the crowds into cheering for the home team at sports events were the tasks of the song and yell leaders. The ' 6l- ' 62 school year produced an energetic group of girls, and at practically every game you could hear people say things like: " Wasn ' t that a neat routine those girls did, " and " Where do those girls get all that energy. " A play is made on the field and the band strikes up a song. Where are the eyes of the crowd, on the players? No, they are looking at a small group of girls dancing on the side- lines — the song leaders. They perform routines at games and pep rallies. This year the song leaders were Gerene Headrick, head song leader; Trudy Hale, who was crowned Homecoming Queen; Mary Ann Beacock, elected Eastern Conference Queen; Jacque Cothran, Homecoming Princess; Judy Hoepner; Valarie Kahn; and replacing Valarie at the middle of the year was Kay Banasky. Yeaaaaaaaaaa team!!! And as the ball leaves the quarterback ' s foot, the crowd goes wild. The song leaders take a little time out from their activities to watch part of the game. Caren Jenkins, Andrea Teeter, Connie Jaster, Sandy Langsdon, and Zarol De Haven go wild as a Hornet man drops the ball in the basket. Hornet Spirit The yell leaders had a challenging job, for aside from needing exuberant amounts of energy, they often had to yell themselves hoarse to get the audience to cooperate, and after they got it, to get the crowds to yell together. This year the group of yell leaders consisted of five girls. The group was headed by Karen Jenkins. Others were: Sandy Logsdon, Connie Jaster, Andrea Teeter, and Carol De Haven. No game would be complete without the flag waving; this is the task of the flag twirlers. These girls are seen with flags fluttering as they join the song leaders in routines. Participating in this activity were: Bobbie Rader, Kay Hodgson, Joan King, and Regina Lo Cascio. Twirling the flags at the games were, Bobbie Rader, Kay Hodgson, and Regina Lo Cascio.

The service clubs greatly enrich campus life by their participation in activities such as Homecoming and Spring Sing and by being available to the Dean of Women to perform emergency duties. Each club has its own unique way of contributing to the welfare of the school. Phi Beta Lambda sponsors the annual " Business Education Day " that affects a portion of the student body many times its own mem- bership. Young Republicans offers stimulating and in- spiring speakers. Usherettes almost every week are called on to serve at school functi ons. Each club offers advantages and opportunities of special interest to different groups of students. The Hornet Christian Fellowship offers a chance for FJC ' ers to worship together. Professional Nurses, Medical As- sistants, Dental Assistants, Vocational Nurses, Ama- teur Radio Club, Young Farmers, Future Teachers, Literary Club, Geology Club, Dance Club, and Beta Phi Gamma all appeal to specific groups. Alpha Gamma Sigma is an honor society of students with high scholastic standing. But all agree, whether active in clubs or not, that the system of clubs at FJC provides a backbone of support for all activities on campus. 101 FIRST ROW; Bob Gallagher, Larry Cossid, Tony Dalassi, Raoul Robles, John Lindsay, Phil Snyder, Mike Harris, Bob VCilliams, Jack Currie, Paul Samson, Rich Romaine, Jim Lindsay.

The Hornet Knights men ' s service club celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. In 1941 the college decided that a campus club dedicated solely to school service would be a definite asset. The club started with only twelve men, who borrowed the name, " Knights, " from the service clubs of Oregon State and University of Southern California. The Knights took upon themselves services that the school had previously paid for, and have set a pattern of leader- ship which in following years was to give rise to new service clubs on campus. The first president was Donald Jackson, and the first advisor was Denver Garner, then Dean of Men. The original purposes of the Knights were to help at student rallies, sell tickets, and estab- lish a school pep section. Since then they have added many other activities. It was the first club to be awarded an annual dance, the Knights ' Spring Informal. Other activities include exchanges with sororities, informal club get togethers, picnics, a formal initiation banquet, and poster parties for the numerous candidates that they sponsor for various school offices. Last year the Knights was the only men ' s service club to be listed as co-sponsor with Look Magazine in the Look National Safety Check Week. The club has won awards for service to the school, intramural activities, service points. Homecoming, and Spring Sing. Many Knights participate in the annual Men of Distinction Banquet. When a man joins the Hornet Knights he has the privilege of belonging to a club associ- ated with twenty years of tradition and honor. He has the benefit of belonging to a group of men who are always willing to help a club brother. He inherits pride in school, com- munity, and club, and is proud to wear his Knights ' jacket and pin. Phil Snyder President Hornet Knights 102 Professional Student Nurses •• l i lelen Hawl President Fall, 1961 ;ins Susan Woodward President Spring, 1962 The Professional Student Nurses ' Organization at FJC is composed of all students enrolled in the professional nursing program. PSNO members are also entitled to join the state and national student nurse association. Many students at FJC are unaware of this group because they spend most of their time at Orange County Hospital and at the School of Nursing there, which is a part of the Fullerton Junior College campus and the only resident part of the campus. Professional Student Nurses participated in various ser ice projects such as assisting at polio clinics, sponsoring cake sales and the annual Spaghetti Dinner to raise funds. PSNO was also active in the annual Big and Little Sister Party, Christmas Dance, Summer Picnic, and sent delegates to the annual state and national student nurse conventions.

Delta Sigma Chi, although the youngest and smallest women ' s service club at FJC, has this year outdone itself in activities, both social and service. Formed five years ago by Miss Marguerite Waters, Dean of Women, Deltas is now a vital club on campus. Deltas participated in the freshman breakfasts and rush activities. For the first time, Deltas entered a float in the Homecoming Parade and also sponsored a winning candi- date for Homecoming Sophomore Attendant. Decorating the deans ' office for Christmas, assisting the AWS party for retarded children, collecting articles for the Red Cross, and entering a display in the Bill of Rights Week kept members busy. Other service projects included collecting stamps for a mission school and " hostessing " for the United Service Organization. Among the outstanding social events were a Christmas party, the annual vacation at Big Bear during the semester break, and several outings during Easter vacation. Another first for Deltas was entering Spring Sing — with the added honor of winning third place! Deltas also sponsored the annual " Basketball Bounce, " an after-the-game dance, and participated in Women of Distinction. Delta Sigma Chi Linda Sten President 104 Amateur Radio Club The FuUerton Junior College Amateur Radio Club is for all students interested in amateur radio communications. The club, inactive for eight years, was reorganized in the fall of I96I, with the help of the advisor, Mr. Duke. Ten charter members participated. In October of 1961, the club participated, along with other Southern California colleges, in a field day at Pasadena City College. This consisted of taking trans- mitters, receivers, and antenna to a field site and operating them under emergency conditions for a period of twenty-four hours. The results were tabulated, and the Fullerton Junior College ARCs captured first place. The Amateur Radio Club participated in the Bill of Rights Week on the FJC cam- pus and placed second. One highlight of the activities was the sending of a radio- telegram to John F. Kennedy, President of the United States who replied with a letter of appreciation. The club also participated in a nationwide field day last May, and joined in the Civil Defense program.

Starting the year with a get-acquainted pot- luck, the Dental Assistants participated in the first really big activity of the FJC school year by entering a float in the Homecoming Parade and sponsoring candidates for Homecoming Queen and Princess. In addition to holding several parties, Chi Beta Sigma spent four days in the mountains during the semester break and held a joint farewell potluck with the Medical Assistants for advisor Mrs. Jean Harris. Members attended the annual Dental Con- vention in Los Angeles in April. The install- ation banquet for new officers was a highlight of the year.

Students gathered in the audi- torium to listen to Dr. Russ Graham, who began the assembly with the organ prelude, followed by the invocation given by Ron Mankin, AMS President. Voices of FJC students joined together in " My Country ' Tis of Thee, " led by Darwin Frederickson, FJC music instructor. New and old students listened while ad- ministrative personnel were introduced. Student Body Officers were also presented. This assembly certainly played an important part in getting the newer students ac- quainted. Student ofl5cers and administrative staff are shown on stage in the audi- torium at the Convocation Assembly. Addressing the student body from the podium is Gordon Melgren, Dean of Instruction. Members of FJC administrative staff and Student Body Offi- cers rise as Ron Mankin gives the invocation at the annual Convocation Assembly. 114 ir d Buckner Assemblies Teddy Buckner steps out for a trumpet solo at the Teddy Buckner assembly in the auditorium. A loud ja number brings all eyes to the stage where Buckner and Band performed at an FJC Assembly early in the fall semester. Applauding loud, long, and clear were the students who attended the Teddy Buckner assembly on September 21 in the high school auditorium. Entertainmg an overflow crowd, Buckner and his band presented a series of jazz numbers which were enjoyed by all. In past years Buckner has appeared at 7 assemblies at FJC. He considers this his " favorite college " because of the over- whelming response he always receives. Ted- dy Buckner also appeared at an assembly later in the spring which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. 115 FJC students are shown above making good use of the music pro- vided at the noon dance which was held in the student center. FuUerton Junior College students gathered in the student center at a noon dance during the beginning of the fall semester. Records provided music for students interested in danc- ing. Plenty of space was available for those students who attended the dance for a social hour. Dances of this type are a necessary part of the curriculum and students who avail themselves to attend them enjoy the records and relax by keeping time to the music with their feet. Bob Wagner, ASB President, and Hal Sedik, members of the Vet ' s Club, are shown midst an attempt to dance. Highlight Year. Noon 116 Dr. Richard Armour, noted humorist and satirist, is shown speaking to the student body from the podium in the auditorium. " Laughing at Ourselves " was the topic that Dr. Richard Armour, noted huinorist and satirist, selected to speak on before a large crowd of FJC students. Armour is well known as a serious scholar and a prolific writer of humor and satire. His present position is professor of English at Scripps College and the Claremont School of California. This, as other assemblies, highlighted the year and added enjoyment and relief from academic studies for students. Dance And Humor Bq 117 Mr. Coulter is shown directing a solo number by Lori Cranston backed by the other members of the Madrigal Choir at the annual Christmas assembly. Adding to the beauty of Christmas were the choirs of FJC which performed at the annual Christmas as- sembly. The Madrigal Choir, led by Mr. Coulter, performed various Christmas num- bers. Lori Cranston sang a solo number pertaining to the Christmas season. Other Christmas numbers were sung by the College Choir, the A Capella Choir, and the choirs combined. Mr. Helvey is the director of choirs on the FJC cam- pus with the exception of the Madrigal Choir. The Christmas assembly was thoroughly enjoyed by all, and added to the holi- day season. Christmas Assemblif Members of the choirs of FJC combined their voices to present the Hallelujah Chorus, directed by Mr. Kenneth Helvey, head of the FJC music department. 118 The Mitchell Boy ' s Choir from Hollywood did their part in mak- ing the Christmas season joyous and gay for those students who attended the Christmas assembly featuring this group. Numerous carols and numbers keeping with the holiday season were sung by the group. The Nuggets, a group composed of five boys who attend Fullerton and Sunny Hills Schools were presented at an assembly earlier in the year. This group proved entertaining to all because of the style and manner in which they played and sang folk songs similar to those played by the Kingston Trio. The Mitchell Boy ' s Choir is shown singing a Christmas number during an assembly in December.

She ' s expensive! " exclaimed Mr. Garner (left); Jacque Cothran, slave (middle), Tom Erwin, slave keeper (right). Here is one of the masters taking his slave. He is ready to enjoy her service. 120 Laughter thundered the crowded Student Center in the exciting Slave Sale on April 5th. Sixteen attractive girls from the freshman class, together with our well known ASB President, Bob Wagner, and ASB Vice- President, Jerry Vanover, had enthusias- tically oflfered themselves to be " slaves " for the auction. Mr. Denver Garner, FJC Speech Instruct- or, presented the most important part in the sale in calling the bids. His humorous words and expressions aroused laughter and great excitement. The boys, charmed by those beautiful figures, showed great enthusiasm in pur- chasing. The girls were a little hesitant at first, in purchasing the two handsome presidents. The reason for their hesitation was perhaps that the two had to be sold together. Duties and liabilities of the " slaves " were limited The " slaves " could only carry books, talk, and eat lunch with their buy- ers at their breaks for two days. Nothing else could be asked, and if at any time, the buyers said or did something dis- pleasing or unpleasant to the " slaves, " the " slaves " would be released from bondage. The proceeds of the sale were used to purchase a gift for the College. Political Rallif A special interest to all was the election Rally which helped to decide the student leaders for 1962-1963. The Rally was held in front of the Stu- dent Center with a great number of par- ticipants. It began with Bob Wagner, ASB President, urging the participants to vote wisely. Then followed a short introduction of the candidates who de- livered their campaign addresses in turn. The most notable candidates were Ron Mankin and Eric vom Dorp, who were opponents for ASB President. Their speeches were the highlight of the rally.

Orange County State Col- lege hosted the Dumbo Derby. Our entry, Debbie, was a baby elephant as Fullerton is only a " junior " college. A grand total of fifteen schools entered ele- phants in this contest. These schools included the University of Nevada, Cal Poly, Chapman, the University of Southern Cali- fornia, Harvard, and the Univers- ity of Washington. The elephants competed in four main events: sprinting, flag race, obstacle race, and carrying a pail of water the entire length of the field. The sweepstakes winner was the Harvard entry, and Fullerton Junior College captured second place in the baby elephant divi- sion. . . . And Its Off To The Races ! John Lindsay holds Debbie while Bob Wagner gives her a few words of encouragement. Trainer Ray Rodman lends a hand as Debbie and Dean Malm shake on a race well run. 122 the Races Another first this year was the Fullerton Junior College Frog Jumping Contest. More than one thousand students packed the gym on May 15 when the frogs were of! and jumping. Frog trainers defied Pavlovian theory; tuba playing, floor stomping, and horn tooting failed to stim- ulate the frogs to ictory; however, an overexuberant foot stomper, Tom Ka- kos, nearly flattened his frog. Students donned jungle helmets and carried flags to cheer their favorites on to victory. More than forty frogs competed in this First Annual Frog Jumping Contest. Each frog was allowed three jumps and the final measurement was based on these jumps. The winner was Taylakey, a Knights ' sponsored entry. He jumped 6 ' 9 " to victory. It was in the spirit of Calaveras County that Fullerton Junior College enjoyed its first Frog Jumping Contest. Dr. Sheller and Bob Wagner congratulate Debbie. One . . . Two . . . Three . . . Jump!

Her majesty was sponsor- ed by the Knights and elected queen by the Stu- dent Body. The other two contestants were Jennie Mae Lamb and Gerene Headrik, who were spon- sored by the Thetas and the Vets, respectively. Mary Ann was escorted for introduction by Stu- dent Body President Bob Wagner during the coronation. The couples danced until one a.m. and agreed that this dance was indeed a memor- able event. Each year Fullerton Junior College joins the seven other member schools of the Eastern Conrerence — Chaffey, Citrus, Mt. Sac, Orange Coast, Riverside, Santa Ana, and San Bernardino — at the annual Eastern Conference Dance. The appropriate theme, " Cupid ' s Caper, " was reflected in the decorations that adorned the Hollywood Palladium, where the dance was held on February 21, 1962. Entertain- ment was provided by the Elliot Brothers and the Highlanders. The Elliot Brothers have performed at Disneyland and the Highlanders were from San Bernardino Valley Junior College. " Her Royal Majesty " is crowned b Bob VXagner, ASB President. 125 Cotton Candtj Couples Swing To The Music of Herb Silvers and His Band Pink satin ribbons, whimsical elephants, and fluffy cotton candy transformed the Student Center into a " Cotton Candy Carnival. " This theme marked the annual girl-date dance that was sponsored by the Associated Women Students on Friday, March 30, 1962. The men were given a list in order to rate their dates as Lousy, Fair, Excellent, or Stupendous. At ten thirty the rating sheets were collected and Shirley Zysk was announced to be the best date of the evening. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the four candidates for " Mr. Fuller- ton Junior College. " The candidates were Ron Mankin, Dan Miller, Jerry Vanover, and Bob Wagner. Jerry Vanover, Student Body Vice-president, was elected " Mr. Fullerton Junior College " for 1962. Herb Silvers and his band provided music for the occasion. Mr. Silvers conducted a Twist contest and later donned a beard in the Mitch Miller manner to lead a sing-along. At midnight the band played the last number that was appropriately entitled " The Dance Is Over. " Carnival 126 Luau Shirley Zysk, Jerry Russell, Tony Ualessi, and Elizabeth Guinan stroll through the Hawaiian paradise created on the F.J.C. Patio. Nancy Steztr and Jim Lindsay dancing the hula (?) Swaying palm fronds and luau tables created an authentic Hawaiian atmosphere for the Luau held on April 27, 1962. The girls were dressed in colorful muu-muus and sarongs while the men were clad in bermuda shorts. A free and fun-filled mood prevailed throughout the evening. Refreshments were served at low tables and mats were placed on the patio to sit on. As the evening progressed a dance was held in the Student Center. This vicarious trip to the islands was enjoyed by all, and the Luau was hailed as one of the most successful social events of the year. lullcrnin students enjoy the Hawaiian repast. 127 spring Formal The Lettermen sing " The Way You Look Tonight " 1 Couples Listen and Dance To The Music of Jerry Gray The magnificent chandeliers of the Bev- erly Hilton ' s Grand Ballroom cast an am- ber glow over the dancing couples. This was the setting for FuUerton Junior Col- lege ' s Spring Formal. " S ' Wonderful " was chosen as the theme for the dance. As the fleeting hours sped by, everyone agreed that this theme was indeed a fitting one. The music for this occasion was provided by Jerry Gray and his band. These versa- tile musicians created a variety of moods: the Latin beat of the cha-cha, the Twist ' s timely tempo, and a dreamy rhythm as they played old and new favorites. 128 fr 5 ' Wonderful 99 A wave of applause and a mass migration toward the bandstand announced the ar- rival of the Lettermen. This famous re- cording group presented their inimitable rendition of " The Way You Look To- night " to the fascination of the au dience. Laughter shook the ballroom as the tal- ented trio sang " More Money For You And Me " and " Runaway. " Their wonder- ful performance ended on a more serious note as the Lettermen sang " You ' ll Never Walk Alone. " The Lettermen, laughter, and melodic strains filled the Grand Ball- room.

On Thursday, May 24, Fullerton Junior College ' s Men of Distinction were honored at a banquet that was held at the Yorba Linda Country Club. The twenty-five Men of Distinc- tion were selected by a student-faculty committee from a preliminary list of over one hun- dred top male students. Each man was selected for outstanding accomplishments in the areas of study or service to the school. Associates of nearby colleges and the families of the Men of Distinction were. guests as they received certificates and were awarded Mu Omicron Delta gold keys. These outstanding scholars and leaders of our school are more precious and have rendered services far more valuable to their school than the precious metal of the keys that they were presented. This year ' s Man of the Year received his award in the area of student government. His name is as familiar to Fullerton Junior College students as his smile. 1962 ' s Man of Distinc- tion, Bob VC ' agner, served the student body this year in the capacity of Student Body Presi- dent. This award accorded Wagner was also an expression of gratitude from each member of our student body for the fine job that he has done as the head of our student govern- ment. Bob Wagner proudly accepted the award and received the sincere admiration of the entire student body.

Delegates to the conference participated in writing contests, panel discussions, workships, and discussions of publication problems. The conference included two banquets at which people in the field of publication spoke. The last banquet included an awards presentation. Mr. Lew Barrett, Journalism instructor, and Ken Allan, winner of the Howard C Hall Scholarship, show Carleen Simonson where her name will be placed as the recipient of the Journalist of the Year Award. A tree planting ceremony was held this year to honor Howard C. Hall, Journalism instructor at FJC until his death in January of 1961. This year ' s Journalism Award Ban- quet was held in the home of Carleen Simonson. This banquet was held to present awards to deserving students in the field of Journalism.

One rarely takes time to consider what actually goes into the production of a yearbook. This year ' s TORCH staff worked laboriously on the various phases of year- book production. Under the direction of the two conscientious co-editors, Ruth Copeland and Ann Wright, the 1961-62 staff planned, wrote and photographed this annual — the first hardbound edition in three years. Renee Hodge adequately planned the club sectio n as well as class and faculty section. Bill Rogers worked persistently on the Student Government section. Dur- ing the first semester Kay Wiltshire and Sandy Tucker worked on the Activities division while Elaine Molen- dyk, Connie Jump, Miranda Lim, and Rosy Fung edited the Activities Division during the second semester. Malcolm Parker worked diligently on the Departmental section. He and his assistant, Paul Cook, were often seen in the Art building and in other departments working with the photographers in getting the pictures taken. Sportswise, Mike Reese was Sports Editor during the first semester while John Castillo took over this job during the second semester. Ted Robinson worked on the Advertising section, this being the first time in three years that the TORCH boasts such a department. The Drama department was under the direction of Dan Reed who, because of his knowledge of this department, did an excellent job. There were many photographers who helped matters greatly by their willingness to help the staff in this field. Dr. William A. Carmody held the position of faculty advisor and was always on hand for any major problems. The highlight of the year for a few members of the staff was a trip to the Journalism Convention this year held in Sacramento. The delegates from the TORCH staff were: Ruth Copeland, Ann Wright, Elaine Mol- endyk, Renee Hodge, Malcolm Parker, Bill Rogers and Bob Smith. Dr. Williain Carmody supervises the yearbook.

Heading the staff as editor-in-chief was Carleen Sim onson. Under the supervision of Mr. Lew Barrett, faculty advisor, the staff worked industriously to get the paper out to the students every Friday. Besides producing an interesting and informative newspaper, certain members of the staff were busy pick- ing up awards at the Long Beach State Journalism Day. Tom Neill, Hornet Assistant Editor, won a first award in news writing, and two second place awards, one in spot news, the other in editorial writing. Ken Allan, sports editor, won a first place award for his column " The Way I See It. " Finally, Tom Birsch- bach and Joe Tatar won third place awards in feature photography respectively. Members of the staff also made the trip to Sacramento for the Journalism Convention. These were: Carleen Simonson, Sue Wilson, Barbara Huckabee, Tom Neill, Dave Warden, Ken Allan, Tom Birsch- bach, Gary Rausch, and Joe Tatar. Gary Rausch held the honor of capturing the only trophy awarded to Fullerton at this Convention.

The Drama Department Presents The Visit by Friedrick Duerrenmatt, a pro- vocative drama, was presented by the Ful- lerton Junior College Drama Department as the fall play. It is a drama about a rav- ishing force of greed, a brutalizing effect of grinding poverty, the dire results of frustrated love, the ruthless drive for pow- er, the fruitless search for justice, the im- portance of human dignity, and the merci- lessness of revenge. The Visit centers around the story of a wealthy woman ' s return to the village of her childhood. This visit is not an ordinary one to bring back fond childhood memories, but one of start- ling disclosure. Madame Zachanassian asks the town for the life of Anton Schill, one of its most prominent citizens, who had disgraced her. For this she offers the town one billion marks. The problems which Anton Schill face and the events which lead to the town ' s decision make this a play which will not easily be forgotten.

T E A T R E ' 5 2 With increased interest in the arts, the Drama Department finds itself a growing vital force as it expands its activities in order to satisfy the cultural and educational needs of the students and the community. The curriculum now includes: Principles of Acting, Intermediate Acting I and II, Principles of Directing, Introductions to the Theatre, Development of the Theatre, Beginning and Advanced Theatre Crafts Classes, and Oral Interpretation. The rewards of the theatre are truly immeasurable for those who have de eioped the art of theatre-going. In the words of Harold Clurman, noted New York director and Drama critic, " The theatre is an escape — an escape into reality. " 152 Drama Students go over their lines with Mr. Stoughton, Drama and Speech instructor. Graduating from Modesto Junior College, Arch (as he is called by students and friends alike) re- ceived a B.A. degree in Music from San Francisco State College. He minored in Drama. For two years he taught at Calistoga (north of San Fran- cisco) and then came to Pasadena Playhouse. After three years in the Army, he worked at the famous summer theatre in Kennebunkport, Maine. Returning to California, Arch taught for two years in El Monte before coming to Fullerton High School in 1948. During the next twelve years, he directed some 25 plays and nearly 20 more for the Santa Ana Community Players. In nine years of one-act play competition. Arch ' s students won seven superior ratings and two Governor ' s Trophies. During the summer of 1956, he obtained his Master ' s degree in theatre pro- duction at use. Through his agent in Hollywood, Arch has been seen in various roles in TV ' s Gunsmoke, Union Pacific, Northwest Pas- sage, Sheriff of Cochise, and O ' Henry Playhouse. Two of his movie appearances (which he rarely mentions) were in Machine Gun Kelly and Hot Rod Girl. Arch also appeared for six weeks in the Stage Society ' s professional production of the Plough and the Stars at the Ivar theatre. Now completing his first year at FJC, he worked for two summers at Orange Coast College. This Summer he will be the technical director for " Kiss Me Kate, " a musical to be presented at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa.

J: Mrs. Lois McClure, Acting Head Librarian, receives the request for a book from English Instructor Dr. William Carmody. Behind the Scenes Much of the backstage activity this year has been due to the retirement of Miss Nancy Lee Carmichael the Head Librarian after 33 years with the District and over 20 years at FJC. Miss Carmichael graduated from Mills College in Oakland, California, and did her Library Work at the Los Angeles Public Library School. She then worked as the Assistant Children ' s Librarian at the Los Angeles Public Library. In 1930 she came to the FUHS-FJC School Dis- trict, as a Substitute Librarian, and in 1933 became Head Librarian of the High School. In September of 1941 she became Head Librarian here at Fullerton Junior College. When the war broke out she took a leave of absence and entered the service. She became a Librarian in the Army Volunteer Services and served in Germany and Czechoslovakia with the U.S. The book on arrival first goes to Mrs. Hazel Peterson who checks it in and gives it an accession number. 158 On it goes to Mrs. Grace Davenport help of Mrs. Lilian Barnaby, catalogs it.

She returned to the FJC campus in 1948 and stayed here until she retired at the Spring Semester this year. Miss Carmichael took part in the steady growth of the college. When she first came, the library was a small room on the high school campus. From there it moved up- stairs in the math building. She took an active part in the planning and growth of the present library, she saw the library grow from 12,000 volumes when she first came to 32,000 volumes it now possesses. In her spare time Miss Carmichael was interested in architectural design, interior decoration, and genealogy, and she has always been active in community affairs. At the semester Mrs. Lois McClure took over and has been acting as temporary head librarian until someone is appointed to fill the position. Finally the book is placed (in the shelves and imt of the Desk (Klerks, in this case Mrs. Dee Grimm, will check it out to anyone wishing to use it. 159 I i UL The first step in photography is snapping the pinure, as demonstrated by Ann Wright. Camerabtigs Taking the pictures for the publications on campus is the job of the photography department. This department is partially made up of students inter- ested in going into photography for a profession. Here they learn the fundamentals which make it possible for them to get along in a darkroom. They learn the history as well as the theory. The photography students are required to take pictures and work in the darkroom every week to gain needed experience.

Each student who elects a major in Music must declare a principal interest in at least one area of per- formance — voice, piano, or other instrument. Performances in student recitals or other public appear- ances is required. In view of the importance of keyboard facility as a basis of upper division work, each student is urged to take four semesters of piano in the lower division program. The study of voice and instruments is also recommended. Concert and student recital attendance is required of all music majors. 165 Art Miss Mary Hodgdon explains a reproduction of a stained-glass window prepared by students for the Modern Church Architecture Exhibit. The Modern Art Exhibit proved to be a big success and was visited by many students whether majoring in art or not. Julie Robinson begins with a freehand drawing of model Paul Cook. Linda Burrows and David Foster paint some scenic sketches for one of their Art classes. 166 Some students went as far as to discuss the jiossibie ilieiiie that the painter wished to get across at the Modern Art Exhibit. This scene shows a group of Freehand Drawing students in the midst of their usual routine in the Art Class. Paintings such as these were on sale to the public at each of the exhibits held at FJC this year. 167 Modern Art and Furniture evaluated here by student was very popular with the student body as well as with the public. The Tv entietli teniury Painting exhibit here admired by a FJC coed, was held in February and March. This scene typifies the Crafts exhibit, one of the most popular exhibits held this year. Leo VCingett admires advertising display held on campus this ear. 168 Hill M -fliEZI r An Advertising Exhibition of great interest in business, was held from January 15 to February 15. The Crafts Kxhibit was held in the Art Cialler from October 2 to October 27 last fall. Outstanding Southern California artist craftsmen exhibited work in furniture, textiles, rugs, mosaics, glass, wood, ceramics, jewelry, and sculpturing. This was a very popular show and visitors came to see it more than once and even purchased some of the creations. The " Modern Church Architecture Hxhibit " was shown from Nov- ember 11 to December 13. Simulated stained glass windows de- signed and made by students at the college painting classes were shown in the gallery at the same time and created a church atmos- phere appropriate to the Christmas season. The front window fac- ing the street was lighted all during the holidays. From January 15 to February 15 the gallery displayed the 1961 competition brochures and portfolios of the " Ad ertising Associ- ation of the West. " These illustrated campaigns were from 15 states and Canada. It was an exhibit of great interest to students in bus- iness classes, in advertising art and lettering, design and color, and to all of us as consumers. The " 20th Century Painting Exhibition, " from February 26 to March 2, consisted of 112 paintings borrowed from art galleries, museums, and private collections and represented a cross-section of the work of modern masters. It was the first time that a show of this magni- tude has been seen at Fullerton Junior College and because of that, and because of the controversial nature of contemporary art, the exhibit aroused much interest on campus and in the community. The exhibit in the gallery from March 30 to April 16 was the second Orange County High School Art Show. Some of the best work of students from eight high schools in addition to Fullerton High showed paintings, drawings in man) ' media, and various crafts as testimony to the talents and the visual arts today. We can expect great things when these students advance to college. From May 14 to June 7 the annual spring show of this year ' s work of the art classes was an exciting climax for the students of the visual arts. Another aspect of the Crafts Exhibit held in the fall is illustrated here. 169 The Agriculture department at Fullerton JC, formerly of minor importance, has expanded with the addition of new equipment and new facilities. The area allotted for agriculture is comparable to a separate campus that includes classrooms, laboratory, library, and shower room facilities. Some aims of the agriculture program are to pro- vide practical experience for students and to serve the college. Students interested in agriculture are offered courses in ornamental horticulture, land- scape design, soils, crops, and fe-tilizers. The soil lab is one of the various lab courses offered by the Agriculture department. The three instructors. Dr. Meuli, Mr. Morgan, and Mr. Sterader are very pleased with the modern facilities, and apparently the students are satisfied with the agriculture program. Students plant different kinds of crops and use modern farm machinery. In the machine shop they learn the elements of carpentry, concrete, electrical wiring, and plumbing work, as they apply to farm buHdings and structures. Certainly this past year has been one of renova- tion in the Agriculture department. Al Neighbors, FJC agriculture student, demonstrates some of the new equip- ment purchased this year by the Agriculture department. Al Neighbors, Dr. Lloyd Meuli, and Kathleen Rowley discuss one of the botanical aspects of Agriculture. One of the activities of the department was a sale of plants and shrubs to the student body and faculty. 170 a 3 • ■RflKlK The ability to boil water properly is one of the essential steps to becoming a good homemaker, demonstrates Dolly Arrett.

Adding to the variety of activities on the Fullerton Junior College Campus was the student participation through clubs in con- nection with Bill of Rights Week, December 11-15. Club members joined their efforts and ideas in making displays pertaining to the first Ten Amendments of the United States Constitu- tion. Entries were judged by a commission composed of six students of F.J.C. and mem- bers of the faculty. The honor of first place was presented to Hornet Christian Fellowship who portrayed the Freedom of Religion aspect of the first Amendment. Much time, planning, and effort went into the display which was obviously well worth the effort. HRI5TIHII LLDU5HIP I The honor of first place was presented to Hornet Christian Fellowship for their display on Freedom of Religion. I Shown above is a close up of the " Freedom of Religion " display set up by Christian Fellowship. Symbols of Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant religions were used in the display. 172 Observed Bq FJC Students Appearing bv the flag are members of the Bill of Rights Committee. These students were chosen because of special qualifications, to help judge the entries presented by the campus clubs during Bill of Rights Week. A large Bill of Rights Week sign was put up in front of the student lounge in signifi- cance of this week. Students put forth much time and effort in making displays pertaining to their particular Amendment. Freedom of the Press was portrayed by Beta Phi Gamma, which is a campus club com- posed of members of the Hornet stafif, and members of the Torch staff. Various on and off campus publications ere attached to a large wheel as an e.xample of Freedom of the Press which is enjoyed throughout the L ' nited States. Members of the Bill of Rights Committee from left to right are: Carleen Simonson, Missy Dahl, Jerry Vanover, Dave Louvar, Bob Wagner, and Coleen O ' Brien. Entries were judged by this committee and designated members of the faculty. f B!Lt nr RinuT m The front of the siiuUiii Iduii ' i Jisi ' l.iMnu a l.iim Hill ..I Kiuhis NX tek sign is shown in the midst of the festivities of Bill of Rights Week.

" Through Work Or Displai " Coniption Cattlemen ' s Association " has the right to hold meetings because of the Freedom Assembly clause in the first Amendment. This was appropriately portrayed by the Young Republicans Club through their display. FRF b youR _fi[ ' ; -i T " Sign a Petition " was the theme set forth by the Social Science Clubs in their display for Bill of Rights Week. Students were invited to participate in this activity. 174 Faculty members Mr. Hushaw. Mr. MiKibbin. Mr. Peters, and Mr. Copp arc seen judging one of the many displays set up for Bill of Rights ' cck by the clubs on campus. In Connection With The Students gaze upon the display set up by the Vets Club which portrays the " On Quartering of Soldiers " of Amendment three. RC- V ' ' ' - ' ' " Amendment four was uniquely shown thr..ugh the " Search VC.urcni lisi l.u which was set up by the Theta Nu Theta. 175 First Ten Amendments of Dun t take my cow! " was a catchy and most effective phrase used by the Young Farmers to get their point across in connection with the fifth Amendment. Adding their time and effort to activities throughout Bill of Rights Week were the Young Farmers whose job it was to portray the fifth Amendment. Emphasis placed on the wording " Don ' t take my cow, " points out that the fifth Amendment gives us the right to protection of persons and property from an overpowering government. Wooden men were used as the primary struc- tures for the Knights in displaying the " You Can ' t ' Try ' Twice " phase of the seventh Amendment. Obviously much time and effort went into the making of the Deltas display which cov- ered the eighth Amendment concerning the balance of crime and punishment. Attracting the attention of many students was the Knights unique method of display ing their phase of the seventh Amendment. I Amendment eight concerning balance of crime and punishment was portrayed by the Delta Sigma Chi. a woman ' s social service club. 176 The U-5, Constitution Amendments nine and ten pertaining to powers delegated and resen-ed to the National and State Governments are seen above as they were displayed by the Olympias during Bill of Rights Week. A good many hours of planning and hard work went into the forming of the display put up by the Olympias in commemoration of Bill of Rights Week. The Olympias portrayed the ninth and tenth Amendments which concern powers delegated to the Na- tional and State Governments. A copy of the Bill of Rights was the central figure used by the AMS in their display in the library. Three of the most famed President of the United States and their first ladies were also used as an important part of the display. Added attention get- ters were books on Hamilton, Lincoln, and Washington. AWS achieved their goal in making an attractive display by use of Free- dom Hats and a series of music pieces which were popular during the wars involving the U.S. Music from the " Stars and Stripes Forever, " and other popular wartime ballads along with Freedom Hats were shown in the display in the library by the AWS for Bill of Rights Week. In contributing their share of ambition toward Bill of Rights Week, the AMS used models of ex-presidents of the United States and a copy of the Bill of Rights as a part of cheir display. 177 In Pursuit " " ' m w " Neither Rain, Nor Hail, Nor Dark of Night " Wil Keep F.J.C. Students from Attending Class. Noah Webster defines knowledge as " familiarity gained by actual experience. " For over forty-five years Fullerton Junior College has provided its students with the opportunity of acquiring this valuable learning experience. The instruction the student receives in the classroom constitutes an important part of this learning. However, it is the thoughtful, independent study that enables the student to assimilate this knowledge. Steve Burbeck, Allen Mullenbach, and John Ptak Cram For a Test. Dave Maldonado studies his Psychology text. 178 Df Know ledge Our well equipped library, quiet reading rooms, and the lovely shade spotted lawns provide scenes that are conducive to such study. Discussing a problem, a term paper, or an experience with a friend is an equally important aspect of this learn- ing process. Hurrying to class, waving to friends, and ex- changing greetings provide another experience; we are learning through our acquaintances with other people. Thus, we are learning to under- stand the world we live in through our experiences at Fullerton Junior College. Bett - Cosper and Al Smiley Prove That Two Heads Are Better Than One.

The Library, hive, lawn and just about anywhere is converted to last minute cramming activities. Of course the FJC Library is used all year around. How- ever, according to statistics and unofficial polls, year-round studying has been given up for last minute cramming. Last minute studying does not necessarily mean that the stu- dent isolates himself from such things as noise, food or other students, as you can see most of the students in these pictures look as if they are very intent on their work and yet they are around others. The Torch is recommending that you try studying in the hive or the student center, we JHiSt happened to have found a few students that could. Cosmetology student first learns tricks of the trade on dummy models. Students progress to practicing on each other. Cosmetologq One of the many things they learn is the proper way of washing hair. 182 " Night and Day, " a style created by Connie Baker, is modeled here by Carol Martin. Preparing students for the business of cosme- tology, as well as for their own use, is the basic service of the Cosmetology Department. This course is open to students of both sexes. There were eighty girls and two boys enrolled in this field this year. Before taking the State Board Ex- amination for a license, students must complete 1600 course hours which includes the study of hair dressing, hair coloring, hair cutting, scalp and head treatments, waving, and manicuring. They must take chemistry, anatomy, and electricity courses to help them in carrying out their practical work. A student who has not completed 350 course hours is regarded as a freshman and has to act as a model for 25 hours before she steps up to the rank of senior. The senior students are considered responsible enough to help customers. It was a great triumph of the FJC Cosmetology Department fo secure the 4th position in its initial participation in the contest with eleven junior colleges of California, in May, this year, by the efforts of Modesto Busto. A popular style these days is Baker and set by Diana Kirklen.

Mr. Wilbur Walston helps Gerry Winand locate a particular organ in her pig specimen in the Life Science lab. Chemistry experiments can be fun as well as educational, thinks Saskia von Pahlen-Fodoroff, shown here with her fellow students in the Chemistry laboratory. The internal anatomy of the clam is one of the major ex- periments i n the Zoology lab. Students in Mr. Bright ' s Zoo- logy lA lab are (left to right) : Jerry Spivey, David Page, Gary Dolan, Randy Winn, and Edward Finney. 184 Lisa Couper and Leonard Wilcox find the microscope and the probe very useful instruments in the lab. The science department at FJC is divided into two separate departments — life science, headed by Dr. Elizabeth Wright, and physical science, headed by Mr. Raymond Smith. Be- cause science plays such an important role in today ' s edu- cation, these departments offer many different courses from Anatomy to Zoology in the life sciences, to Astronomy and physics in the physical sciences. These courses, offered to both the science and the non-science majors, are equipped with the best supplies and specimens available on these lower division courses. Science is for the birds — at least in this scene with (front, left to right) Pete Hampton, Maureen Deadrick, Pat Reynolds, (back, left to right) Gerald Olsen, Beverly Bates, Chuck Hayek, and Steve Hepler. The Dental Assistants are an intricate part of the science depart- ment. Illustrating the skills of this profession are patient, Jane Enright, and assistants (left to right) Susan Hankins and Linda Hanson. Courses ofiered to Dental Assistants, Medical Assistants, and Professional nurses are also found in the science cur- riculum at the college. Courses in physical sciences, mathematics, earth sciences, and engineering are offered to the majors in these fields. This year, the department offered lectures given outside of class time by members of the faculty on many different aspects of both sciences. In any event, the science department had a very successful and worthwhile year. No one in the Chemistry labs at FJC sits down on the job. 185 o h i if ' ii ' 1 9 6 2 Q R A D A T I O N 186 Pt ' P gl ' HII! -Tr n , » 4 $4 ta 187 « m 1 n . I IV The fifteenth of June will be remembered as an important date for many Fullerton Junior College students. This was graduation day, 1962 — the culmination and climax of two years of hard work, conscientious study, and many wonder- ful, memorable experiences. As the cap and gown clad graduates proceeded into the stadium their hearts were filled with an abundance of pride and a sense of accomplishment. Graduation is a beginning and an end; life at Fullerton Junior College ends for the graduate as a new phase of his experience begins. Some will continue their educations while others enter the professions and vocations that their training at Fullerton has made them qualified. No student will forget the learning experiences he has acquired at Fullerton and he will go on learning daily in the school of life. The graduates are not only leaving our campus, but many of their friends at Fullerton. We will indeed miss them. However, the void that their absence has created will be filled by our fond memories of the days we shared at Full- erton Junior College. 190 y Compliments of THOMPSON ' S FURNITURE Fullerton KEELER FOODS INC Institutional Groceries Wholesale Business Phones Kl 2-3904 Kl 2-3905 1356 Santiago Avenue Santa Ana Compliments of PURITAN MEAT MARKET Whittier Compliments of EXCELSIOR CREAMERY Santa Ana lional hea t Foods Foundation Library ' » and Industries, Inc.

For three years it came out bi-annually in a magazine form. Changing it back to the book form presented challenging problems. But now it ' s over . . . the book is completed. Tempers are back to normal, tattered a nd frayed nerves are mending. This book contains the events of the past year and represents the prodigious effort of a few individuals commonly known as the TORCH staff. Their achievement will long be appreciated by the members of the student body, and I wish to extend a well- deserved Thank You to them for their cooperation, understanding, and willingness to work. My special thanks goes to Renee Hodge, Ann Wright and Malcolm Parker who took over when other members of the staff deserted their posts. Thanks also goes to the photo department under the direction of Mr. Lewis Barrett. And special thanks to him and to his lab assistant, Bob Smith, for all their help.
