t PUBLISHED BY THE OARFIELD STUDENT ASfOCIATION GARFIELD JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL BERKELEY CALIFORNIA IP YOXT WANT TO KNOW WHO HADE THIS BOOK, TURK TO PAGE 27, OUR PRINCIPAL With the closing of this fall term of 1942 the students of Garfield can look back over a busy and successful term. The " Garfield spirit " served us well through the many and various new wartime ex- periences during the past semester. Garfield has grown stronger and better through the cooperation of students and teachers in meeting these calls for scrap drives, defense stamp and bond sales, and we can all be proud of the real American Spirit of our Garfield Student Body. Let us go forward knowing that we are pulling together and that each day finds us stronger and nearer to peace on earth and good will to men. Olivet C . J-awion OUR STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT This term the Executive Board was faced with the problem of planning the school ' s participation in the war effort, in addition to its regular activities. In making its plans, it was assisted by the principal and faculty advisor; in carrying them out, its success was due entirely to the efficient response of an alert student body. The Scrap Drive came first, followed by a series of War Bond and Stamp sales which set a record for the school. Dances, games, and assemblies were attended with the usual Garfield spirit. This spirit of cooperation made it possible for the executive officers to fulfill the duties for which they were chosen. As your President I wish to thank both you and the Executive Board for a splendid semester.

Assistants and Helpers The Faculty alone can not run this school; they must have help from the students. Students can (and do) help in many v ays. Besides the executl ' o board, student court, etc., there are student assistants and holners. Some students help ' in the office or libi ' ary; others help by being attendance helpers, gym assistants, lockor assistants, or by working : n the public ad- dress. All students vnlunteer for the jobs, and must have good grades and time to be hol.pers. The students learn much from their duties. Office and Counselor helpers learn clerical work, run errands, sort and file papers, lielp nev ' students and have many such lobs. Library assistants ' learn about library work. They 7 ork at the desk, put av ay books, and help find bocks. All helpers learn, and gain much knowledge. This term, too, assistants and helpers have rt.ceived rewards. Everyone is grateful to these boys and girls for their fine work.
