Prior, Janitor Mrs. Menefee, Cafeteria Manager s c H O O L LIFE GARFIELD An organization, such as Garfield, can be successful only to the extent that the students, faculty, and em- ployees all work together for the bene- fit of the school. Cooperation is the one big word which guides the running of an effi- cient and successful school. We all know that Garfield is recog- nized as one of the leading junior high schools in the State of California. We have a first-class building, a good fac- ulty and a well balanced curriculum. We have good school teams that are well coached. Our Gleaner, as you can see, is a remarkable achievement, considering the amount of money we have to spend. The Student Associa- tion at Garfield is a live wire organiza- tion that shows real school spirit at all times. Now, do not think that all of this just happened. A large part of it has come about from the fine standards set by the former Student Bodies, faculties and employees, all working together for the good of the school. If each of you will continue to pull your share of the load and if you all pull together you are sure to keep Garfield on top. Jay Teasdel, Pres. G.S.A. 1. Executive Board 2.

You will have to use force; But, thank heaven, you ' re stronger than I. " Audrey Scheafer: " You know that old vase, you said had been handed down from generations. " Mrs. Scheafer anxiously): " Yes. " Audrey: " Well, this generation has dropped it. " Mrs. O ' Hara: " You have been very naughty and I am going to keep you after school for an hour every day this week. " Bill Brown: " Oh, I don ' t care for myself, but aren ' t you afraid folks ' ll talk? " The flivver owner: " Wouldn ' t that jar you? " The radio announcer: " I ' ll tell the world. " The murderer: " Well, I ' ll be hanged. " The judge: " Fine. " The telephone girl: " I got your num- ber. " The fisherman: " I ' ll drop a line. " The seamstress: " Darn it. " It was the end of the scene; the heroine was starving. " Bread, " she cried, " give me bread. " And then the curtain came down with a roll. Beth Meeker was left by her mother to watch the soup while her mother entertained some guests. Pretty soon Beth ran out and cried, " Mother come quick! The soup ' s getting bigger than the pot! " Corrine Hansen: " What ' s all the riot in the science room? " lim Barret: " That ' s just Miss Lowrey rolling the bones. " Mary Lynn Mcintosh: " My Scotch boy friend sent me his picture. " Anne Bubb: " Oh, let me see what he looks like. " Mary Lynn: " I can ' t; haven ' t had it developed yet. " Said the toe to the sock, " Let me through, let me through! " Said the sock to the toe, " I ' ll be darned if I do. " Mary had a little lamp, She filled it with benzine; She went to light her little lamp, And hasn ' t since benzine. Barbara Nelson (talking to Margie Friday after her ice skating lesson): " The only thing that ' s hard about ice skating is the ice, when you come right down to it. " Mr. Roscoe: " What does this mean? Someone just called up and said you were- sick and could not come to school today. " Buddy Griffin: " Ha, ha! The joke ' s on him. He wasn ' t supposed to call up until tomorrow. " lay Teasdal, the love maker (who was popular with all the girls) said: " To make love, all you need is a little crust and some applesauce. " Reed Stone: " What do you mean by telling my girl that I ' m a fool? " Hugh Singrey: " Good heavens, I ' m sorry, but how should I know it was a secret? " Frank Tiernan (just before leaving from Barbara ' s house): " Well, I must be off. " Barbara Nelson: " That ' s what I thought when I first saw you. " Mr. Bliss: " Bart Bulmore, why are you looking at your watch so often? " Bart: " I was afraid you might not have time to finish your interesting lecture. " Mr. Gaines: " I want you to be good while I ' m away. " Bob Gaines: " Well! give me a quar- ter and I will. " Mr. Gaines: " Son, when I was a boy I was good for nothing. " Rodney Ludwig: " That ' s funny. " George Filice: " What ' s funny? " Rodney: " Oh, I was just thinking. " George: " That ' s funny. " AUTOGRAPHS f Oa u cf
