A Scotchman went out to the riding stables and held out a dollar

These assistants do a swell job in helping the gym teachers keep
track of all gym equipment. They also help by refereeing games and
taking charge of classes. Lots of thanks for a iob well done.
This year the Garfield Student Body enioyed a wide variety of
entertainment at its assemblies including everything from science
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
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.
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.
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!

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,

jazz at assemblies, special programs and
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.
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 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.
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

A rap on the table and we hear, "Will the meeting please come to
order!" 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
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.
"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 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."
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-
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.
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.
