LOW SEVEN When a student comes to Garfield, he has to get used to new teachers, a change in rooms every period, and, worst of all, homework. It might seem better to stay in elementary school except for the fact that many new activities are offered to us. The buildings seemed strange to us at first, but now we are getting used to them, as well as to the change of teachers. We think our stay at Garfield will be very in- teresting, and we hope it will be successful. Patricia Lengel. HIGH SEVEN When we came to Garfield as Low Sevens we expected it was a school of hard work and no entertainment or other fun. The thought of junior high seemed to frighten us a little; especially the thought of Scrub Day. But as we soon learned to participate in the school activities, such as orchestra, glee, and dances, we began to realize that there was a lot of fun as well as work. We look forward to next year with great ex- pectations. Nan Nelson. THE SPIRIT OF THE LOW EIGHT This term the low eights had loads of fun in sports and other activities, and have taken even more interest in school affairs than before. We were very glad to have some newcomers to our class. This gives us an opp ortunity to make new friends. We are looking forward to next year with great enthusiasm and joy. THE HIGH EIGHT This year the high eighth grade has done more than ever before. We have set a record for other classes to follow. Almost every pupil participated in some activity. For the first time the high eight is represented with the rally boys and student leaders. The high eight was active in sports, too. Boys were on the junior varsity hardball and softball teams. The girls are champions of Berkeley, the high eight having won all of their games. We are also well represented in the Glee Clubs and Or- chestra. Marjory Reed, John Mulvany. LOW NINE We are now " Low Miners, " just one more step on the ladder at " Good Old Garfield. " When we first came here we were just like little birds set- ting out in a big new world, but we soon got over that. Then came the High Seven; we were no long- er scrubs. That is when all the boys and girls start- ed to take an interest and an active part in school activities. In the Low Eight our enthusiasm in ath- letics came to the fore. We began to play inter- school games. We shyly admit we made a fairly good showing. In the High Eight one of our music classes put on a bond skit for the school. We really had fun working on that. Now we are in the Low Nine. We have had a change from arithmetic to algebra and civics to world history. Most of us take it in our stride and go about our school work and social activities with a grin and determina- tion. It is with these same thoughts that we enter the High Nine. Marilyn Miller. A MESSAGE FROM THE GRADUATING CLASS Just as the nations of the world have combined to make peace and form a bond between their nations, our class, the High Nine, has come from various schools to form a happy friendship. At first our classmates from other schools seemed new, but gradually we became good friends, as we realized that friendship is the way to a better school life. We were in the low seventh grade then. Now that we are in the high ninth grade we hardly remember the different schools from which we came. Most of us have been in Garfield for three years, and looking back we realize how much Garfield has meant to us. Now that we ' re high nine ' s we realize there ' s a lot more besides re- port cards or worries. For one thing there ' s the fact that we ' ve learned a great deal that will be of use to us the rest of our lives. When we first came to Garfield, we were amazed at the large amount of money taken in during the various bond drives. That was during the war, but now there is peace. Nevertheless, this term we have continued to contribute to such worthy causes as the " Books for the Philippines " drive and the Red Cross drive. All in all, our class has generously contributed 100 per cent towards the drives of Garfield. When we stop to look back on our days at Gar- field, we remember, most of all, the dances, the various assemblies, and the sports. Also, such memorable places as McCurdy ' s and the Roseway will always linger with us. Since we ' ve been in Garfield, we ' ve had many experiences which made us feel pretty important. One thing that gave us a thrill was eating lunch at the fifth period with those mighty high nine ' s. Now we ' re those mighty high nine ' s ourselves and about to graduate. Garfield, although we ' re eager to go on to higher education, you will always stand out in our memories. Frank Wells, David Best.

Frank Wells. STUDENT COURT " Call in the accused, " says the Chief Justice— and thus another meeting of Garfield ' s Student Court comes to order. All eyes are glued on the defendant as the charge is read. " What is your plea? Guilty or not guilty? " A plea of guilty and the sentence is passed. A record of the case is then put on file for future reference. And so a typical day in Garfield ' s Student Court comes to an end. The present court is composed of four Justices, Lois Nathan, Howard Whisler, Bill Gonser, and Donald Falconer; the Clerk, Ann Davis; the Bailiff, Coralie George; the Sergeant-at-Arms, Bill An- derson, and the Messengers: Jacqueline Spauld- ing and Diana Haynes.
