THE class of 1940 is the largest ever to graduate from Galt Ioint Union
High School. Possession of balance in leadership, participation in acti-
vities, sound scholarship, the ability to cooperate, and a desire to put school
before self, characterizes the class.
I feel that the members will succeed in life as good citizens, economic
independents, and as leaders among their fellow men. There is no doubt that
this group will uphold the finest traditions of the Galt Ioint Union High School,
and I, personally, am proud to have had a hand in shaping the destinies of

ln the past year the Board has sponsored several improvements for the
school. ln October a combination phonograph, public address system, and
motion picture projector machine was purchased. This group next authorized
the order of new uniforms for the fifty-eight members of the band. The pur-
chase of two new busses to replace old ones brought our transportation facilities
up to a high standard. The music department has augmented its school-owned
musical equipment with an oboe, bassoon, flute, French horn, and sousaphone.

Throughout the book the art editor has contributed pictures of different

several days getting ads in order that this book could be printed Without using
the Student Body's money. The pictures and vvriteaups were assembled by
the various editors and placed on their respective pages. The members of the
staff worked earnestly to include in the book all phases of school life.
To the people who contributed ads and snapshots we express our genuine
Miss Wright, in speaking of her staff this year, said, "I have sincerely
enjoyed Working with this group of seniors. They have shown initiative,
cooperation, enthusiasm, and effort."

THE GERMAN CLUB
This is the only foreign language club in the school. Although German
is not spoken exclusively during the meetings, all students must have a HB'
average before they can join the club.
At the beginning of the school term the club officers drew up a consti-
tution in place of the one that was lost. It was voted upon and immediately
put into effect.
Lawrence Radke was elected the song leader in December.
In Ianuary a party was held in the cafeteria with these five new members
being initiated: E. lack, L. Seibel, D. Ladd, lshizuka, and H. Stamp. "Winlc
'Emu and the singing of German songs constituted the entertainment before
refreshments were served.
Monthly meetings were held throughout the year.
A deficit in the German Club was finally overcome by a candy sale in
November and a camera, cake, and candy raffle on April 24.
The club attended a Weiner roast at Lodi Lake, May 15, concluding that
occasion with the election of the officers for the next year.
Club officers are: F. Gudel, president, W. Barber, vice-presidentg l. Kon-
rad, secretary-treasurerg and L. Radke, song leader.
When asked what she thought of this club, Miss Learned stated: "The
German Club not only offers an opportunity for students to develop latent
quallties of leadership, but also stimulates in its members a desire to become
more familiar with Germany's rich culture."

THE HCDNCDR SCDCIETV
"Scholarship For Service" is the motto of the Galt High School Honor
Society, a member of the California Scholarship Federation.
The honorable position of being sealbearer of the organization for this
year belongs to Margie Price. To be a seal bearer a person is required to
be in the Honor Society six semesters including one semester in the senior year.
The first problem confronting the old members, when they came back in
the fall, was the initiation of a new member. After the initiation, which was
held in October, the club consisted of the the following members: Iohn Lakey,
presidentg Henrietta Schmidt, vice-president: Gloria Cooley, secretary, Iohnny
lshizuka, treasurerg Margie Price, torchbearerg and Dolores Konrad.
To meet the financial problem, they raised money by selling magazine sub-
scriptions and by holding a camera raffle,
In the second semester they bade farewell to three of their old members
and welcomed one new member, Emma Kraft. On March 12, the initiation and
election were held in Miss Provines' apartment, the officers being elected as
follows: lone Konrad, president, Doris Iohnson, vice-president, Winona Bar-
ber, secretaryg Margie Price, treasurer: Emma Kraft, torchbearerg and Dol-
Several from this society attended the California Scholarship Federation
Convention of the Northern Divisionheld at Marysville on April 27. The
official delegates, however, were Winona Barber and lone Konrad.
Other activities of the year included a camera raffle and an Honor Society
Day. When Miss Provines spoke of the Honor Society she said, "Life mem-
bers or sealbearers of the Galt Honor Society, who have gone to college, have
maintained a very high average."

THE GIRLS' LEAGUE
Under the outstanding leadership of W'inona Barber, the Girls' League
has had a very successful year. A new system for entertainment at the meet-
ings, which are held on the second Thursday of each month, has made the
occasions more interesting. An entertainment box, in which are the names of all
the girls in the school, is used. At each meeting 12 to 15 names are drawn
out of the box. The girls whose names are drawn furnish the entertainment
for the next meeting.
To begin the year a freshman reception party was given. Each freshman
had her "big sister" who sat with her during the party. On February IO, a
Valentine Party with the "Half-and-Half" theme was held in the cafeteria.
All the girls dressed half one way and half another way. Their mothers and
sisters were invited, everybody received a comic valentine, and prizes were
awarded. A baseball dance was sponsored on April 12 in the gymnasium,
which was decorated according to the baseball theme. To end the term the
annual Mothers' Tea was held and new officers were installed.
The entire Girls' League wishes to thank Miss Wright for the club's
song which she composed. The song is written to the tune of "Theres a Long,
Long Trail A'Winding," and is as follows.
Theres a league in our Galt High School
To which we girls all are true,
Where the bona' of honest friendship
Binds both old and new:
Here are living, lasting mem'ries
Cf little sisters we'Ue found,
Of our big sisters leading
Come, join hands all around.

TI-IE CAMERA CLUB
The Camera Club, which started rather late in the fall due to so many
other activities, is a new organization in our high school.
This club meets about once every two weeks, and during these meetings
works on printing and developing pictures taken by various students.
Color slides of the United States, including many pictures of scenic parts
of the three western states, were shown by Mr. Fraser, the adviser.
Several field trips were taken later in the spring. The club hopes to con-
tinue having interesting meetings next semester taking up more related sub-
jects of photography.
Like all other clubs, the Camera Club was confronted with the problem
of drawing up a constitution. Lawrence Radke, the president, with the aid
of Mr. Fraser, drew up a constitution which was unanimously accepted by the
club. Edna Peters is secretary-treasurer of this new organization.
A number ofthe pictures for this annual were taken by Mr. Fraser.
Peggy Hall and Ernestine DeFord had charge of a picture sale to raise
money for the club. The pictures were those taken by Mr. Fraser of football
and basketball players, and others taken by club members of scenes around
Mr. Fraser says, "The Camera Club has cooperated well, and the mem-
bers seem to have been very interested in photography work,"

The Galt Union High School district was organized October 20, 1911,
School was held until 1913 in a two-story house owned by Mr. C. McKenzie
and located on the corner of 5th and A streets in Galt.
The cornerstone of a new building was laid Saturday, April 12, 1913. On
Iune 28, 1924, a fire of unknown origin destroyed this building, The gym-
nasium and farm mechanics shop, however, were saved.
School opened in September, 1924, in temporary buildings which served
until the autumn of 1927.
,A new building was completed in 1927 and was dedicated February 8,
1928. The architects for this building were Dean 6 Dean of Sacramento.
The first graduating class, 'that of-1913, had only one member, Miss Kath-
erine Reynolds, now a teacher in the San Francisco schools. This year's class of
1940, having 48 seniors, is the largest ever to graduate from Galt High School.
Another interesting comparison has to do with the growth of the faculty
and the student body. In 1919 there were 6 teachers and 53 students. Now,
in 1940, there are 13 teachers and a student body of 296.

Destroyed by Fire
The physical plant today is modern and beautifully landscaped. Included
in the main building are comfortable class rooms. a well-equipped cafeteria,
complete laboratories for the Science, Homemaking, and Commercial, classes,
a library stocked with good books for reading and reference, a nicely fur-
nished girls' locker room and lounge, an auditorium seating approximately 500
people, and a modern motion picture and public address system. To take care
of the agriculture classes, a modern agriculture building was completed in 1938,
and there is also a shop with equipment for wood and metal working. A large
gymnasium, bus garage, tennis tcourt, and three athletic fields to accommodate
softball, football, baseball, and track, complete this phase of the picture. Still
another advantage enjoyed by students today is the free bus service to and
from school. Prior to 1924, students furnished their own transportation, but
now four up-to-date busses cover routes into all these districts: Galt Grammar,
Liberty, Herald, Colony, New Hope, Oak View, Twin Cities, Laguna, Arno,
