"I want to rent a horse, Laddie," he said. "How long?" asked the boy. "The longest you've got, Laddie. There are five of us going." LOW VOLTAGE John: "And so you notice something electric about me?" Noel: "Yes, you're as cold as a refrigerator." Mrs. Young: "One seat for tonight's show, well forward, center, and downstairs." Clerk: "Do you play the violin?" Chris V. E.: "Extro! Extra! Two men swindled!" Passerby: "I'll take one. Why, there isn't anything in here about two men being swindledi" Chris: "Extra! Extra! Three men swindled!" Margie W.: "Kay, why do you look so unhappy?" Kay H.: "I lost my dog." Margie: "Why don't you put an ad in the paper?" Kay: "What's the use, she can't read." Mrs. Evans: "Answer the telephone!" Ronney: "What did it say?" Mr. Dwight fat golf coursel: "Notice any improvement since last year?" Caddy: "Had your clubs shined up, haven't you?" Ruth O.: "Gee, doc, do I feel terrible. Yesterday I ate a dozen oysters." Doctor: "Were they fresh?" R. O.: "I don't know." Doctor: "What did they look like when you opened them?" R. O.: "Oh! You mean l should have opened them?" A question in a physiology examination read: "How may one obtain a good posture?" The little country boy wrote, "Keep the cows off it and let it grow." LAST CHANCE Surgeon: "There is no hope for your recovery. Is there anyone you would like to see?" Phil S.: "Yes-another doctor!" BOYS' VOLLEYBALL-FALL T947 Garfield had four excellent teams this year. Both of the ninth grade teams were undefeated, winning the city championship.

Lots of thanks for a iob well done. ASSEMBLIES This year the Garfield Student Body enioyed a wide variety of entertainment at its assemblies including everything from science to comedy. In the way of science we had an excellent show of experiments by General Motors about iet power, the finest records, and many other interesting things. Our would-be Thespians added their bit with "Bobby Sox" and "Angel Child." In connection with history we had some beautiful color slides on Greece and Italy. The Gleaner Talent Show added greatly and helped to make the year's assemblies a success. GARFIELD SINGS Do, re, mi, fa, sol-up the scale and down again-sing the bud- ding nightingales of the Garfield music classes. One can tell by putting ear-to-keyhole at the bungalow door that these potential coloraturas and baritones are inspired to sing under the waving, instructive hand of the teacher. After such pleasant eavesdropping one is struck by an odd fact. While most of the classes are evenly matched lsections equally filled with boys and girlsl one class has only three male members. These bra-a-ave boys are dominated by the rest of the class which is composed entirely of the fair sex. Identification of various dance forms from record and piano selec- tions has been a main course of study forthe L8's. The L8's now feel equipped to identify, from music, a tarantella, farandolo, English hornpipe or stately minuet. OFFICE HELPERS An office helper is one of those helpful people who comes into the room in the middle of an algebra test and says, "Mrs. Jameson would like to see you!" Seriously, an ofifice helper is a lot of help to the counselors. He runs errands, looks up names and telephone numbers of students lfun if you can do ith and generally helps around the office. The office helpers have done a good job this term and deserve a lot of credit. BOOK ROOM ASSISTANTS The book room assistants help Mr. Van Metre in the book room, distributing and checking all Garfield books. Mr. Van appreciates their assistance and the boys enioy helping. Good work! of ll in x ug Our . -.--,Q-, 3 6 W Q -s S l -, C Q ORCHESTRA The orchestra offers our students an opportunity to display their musical talents. We have a fine orchestra at Garfield, and they are always willing to give us entertainment for any occasion. We don't have a big band, but our leader, Mr, because he has created They give out with the other occasions. BAND name like Tex Beneke leading our school Minzyk, is equally famous around Garfield, a fine band out of our talented students. jazz at assemblies, special programs and LIBRARY HELPERS If some of the kids start giving you scrubs a long line of intelli- gent sounding words, don't be frightened. They've just been near a dictionary because they're our library helpers, who do a fine job of helping Miss Stone in the library. BOYS' GLEE One of the most delightful activities for the girls at Garfield is Boys' Glee. Boys' Glee consists of about one hundred boys who all think they're second Bing Crosbys. But seriously they make some very fine entertainment at assemblies, P.-T.-A. meetings, etc. GIRLS' GLEE Girls' Glee consists of about eighty members, under the direction of Mrs. Young. It is composed of girls who are talented in music. They sing at our assemblies, P.-T.-A. programs, etc., and are always enioyed by all. PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM The P. A. boys, who are responsible for some of the static during our programs, work quite hard keeping the microphones, spotlight, proiector, and other equipment in good working order. The boys have to study their subiects hard to keep above the B+ average required. They are especially proud of the fact that they are the only boys allowed in Girls' Association programs. The boys, under the direction of Mr. Hawkins, do an excellent iob. LOCKER ASSISTANTS Garfield's able and trustworthy locker assistants, under the direc- tion of Mr. Sauers, are in charge of all locks and lockers. If someone forgets his combination or has locker trouble, these assistants will help him in every possible way. Since most Garfielders don't have too much trouble with their locks, the locker assistants don't work too hard. J M ' IZ, I V' I .yd 5 :X H gw A Ns" 3 lx.

That was Dave Gardner, our student body president, begin- ning the weekly meeting of Student Council. Student Council this term consists of Dave Gardner, President, Bill Somerville, Vice-President, Joanne Lowry, Secretary, Patty Hays, Social Secretary, Doris Wilson, Treasurer, Dot Zarley, Girls' Associa- tion President, John Denny, Boys' Association President, Joan Metz, Girls' Athletic Manager, Richard French, Boys' Athletic Manager, Denny Garrett, Chief Student Leader, Barry Durkee, Rally Boy Cap- tain, John Gregg, Frank Patty or Lou Curtice alternating for Student Court, Marston Leigh, "Gleaner" Editor, Beverly Coles, Nadine Gra- ham, Frank Robinson, George Koss, and Chuck Stockholm, Grade Representatives. This council meets every Wednesday morning to discuss grade problems, dances, "Gleaner" sales, programs, student body card sales, and many other school problems. We thank Dave Gardner, Mr. Sauers, Mr. Baxter, and the other members of the Student Council for making this term a very successful one. STUDENT COURT "Cafeteria duty for two weeks, and rules written twice in ink due next Tuesday, and it better be in on time, or else!!" Thus ends another case of Student Court. The court this term consists of John Gregg, Frank Patty, Lou Curtice, and Marston Leigh, Judges, Bernice Brown, Clerk, Shirley Lansberry and Mary Galigher, Bailifts, Bill Coughlan and Diana Bowersock, Sergeant-at-Arms. When an offender is called to court he is sworn in, pleads guilty or not guilty and tells his case. The court decides if he is guilty or not, and he is either given a penalty or acquitted. We want to thank the faculty for giving us this privilege and honor of being on Student Court, Our thanks also to Miss Laurens for helpful advice. STUDENT LEADERS Student Leaders are really Garfield's policemen. They stand very bored in the halls just waiting for someone to scream, run, skip stairs or "konk" someone on the head with a book. Then out come the white slips and next thing you know-you have a ticket! Then you have to appear before Student Court where ---- I! Milton W: "What's a sure way to keep ct fish from smelling?" Dink L.: "l don't know, what?" M. W.: "Cut off its nose." A missionary wrote home: "The natives here are starving and we are badly in need of food-send more missionaries." GIRLS' ASSOCIATION The Girls' Association, headed by Dot Zorley, has had a successful semester. Our first progra-n was the "Big and Little Sister Party," where the low seven girls were introduced to one another by their "Big Sisters." Our second program was a talent show. One of the humorous parts of the show was put on by a group of High Nine girls who sang "Feudin' and a-Fussin'." Next came a fashion show, where the girls were shown examples of the much argued over "new length." The last show was the Senior Farewell with its tra- ditional Senior Skit. The girls have enioyed these programs very much, and we all wish to thunk Mrs. Curtice for her help in pre- senting them. BICYCLE count Each Saturday morning finds four students, each from a difterent school, iudging bicycle offenders who have been given tickets by Berkeley police officers. There are four students from each iunior high school and three from Berkeley High who alternately iudge four weeks on Bicycle Court. The object of this court is to make children become safe bicycle riders. The most common offenses are going through signals, riding on handlebars, improper parking, and riding without lights at night. The four representatives from Garfield are John Gregg, Frank Patty, Lou Curtice, and Marston Leigh. Bicycle Court improves Berkeley and makes it a better city in which to live. BOYS' ASSOCIATION The Boys' Association has had a very successful semester under our president, John Denney. We have seen several interesting movies, the first of which was called "To the Shores of Iwo Jima." It was a vivid account of amphibious warfare during 1945. The second movie was "One Man Task Force." This was an educational Navy picture which described the coordination necessary between fleet and aircraft in order to produce an effective task force. These movies were secured with the assistance of Mr. McPhee. We have enioyed our programs greatly. Thanks to John Denney for a lot of fun.
