X X V N X A D A X Published BY THE STUDENTS OF GONZALES UNION HIGH SCHOOL GONZALES, CALIP. 1 9 4 4 D E D I C A T I o N On behalf of the -graduating class and the Student Body, we Wish to dedicate this book to our boys in the Armed Forces of the United States of America. Each star in our service flag stands for some boy who is doing or has done his best somewhere, near or farp We at home stand by with our help andhopey together we will preserve our liberties and freedom through victory. 'E L. D. LILLEY RICHARD FORCE Principal vice Principal Whatever the trials and troubles of the nation may loe, the schools must go on. In addition to the regular program, provision must be made for pre-induc- tion courses designed to meet the immediate needs of boys and also girls about to enter some branch oi military service. Students must have a more thorough knowledge of American history, oi the meaning and value of democracy, and of the American way of life for which they may soon he fighting. The lure ot high wages constantly shadows educational opportunities and skilled counseling must be used to keep the leaders ot tomorrow Where they may learn the meaning ofthe complete cultural and spiritual destiny of mankind. TRUSTEES' MESSAGE The year ending will long remain in all of our memories. We have been faced with the task of carrying on in spite of many handicaps both as an institution and as individuals. This we have had to do without the stimulus of heroics or adventure. Now it is the fortune of some of our young men and Women to go on to larger fields Where both heroics and adventure may await them. May the best of good fortune be theirs. To those of us who must carry on at home may We have the fortitude and foresight to keep Gonzales High ad- vancing on the same high plane as it has in the past. Clifford McElrath CUSTODIANS The work is done, and we have our custodians to thank. During the past year, not many of us have given much thought as to just how much is done for our campus. We appreciate the time given and labor performed and We are proud of everything the custodians have given us. ww xx a is hu ss a as 1 as a we a ss mm nm H, ms my ALUMNI IN THE SERVICE Amaya, Anthony-M Asmussen, Harvey Areja, Artemio Baroni, Paul Bauman, Bob Bauman, Dick Bauman, William Benadom, E.

At the beginning of the first and second semesters, initiations were held which were accompanied by luncheons. Dur- ing the second semester "The Cat and the Canary," a movie sponsored by the Honor Society, sent chills up and down the backs of the Student Body. A more notable event of the year was the publishing of the "Lemon," the Honor So- ciety's version ol the Cornet. All members Worked hard on it, and the Future Freshmen, who were visiting that day, enjoyed it very much. I7 fa M' Us 1 si FUTURE FARMERS This year's group of Future Farmers continued to live up to the tradition they set since the war began . . . that of "PRESENT FARMERS." lt is interest- ing to note that the relatively small number of upperclassmen really carried on a farming program worth mentioning. The eight upperclassmen, in addi- tion to attending school and carrying on their F. F. A. projects which showed a labor income of S3,2U3.45, averaged 800 hours each or an average of 15 hours a week per student yearly for the 52 week period spent for himself at the home ranch. The other ranching group made up of freshmen show lOU per cent home projects plus the many hours they, too, spend assisting in the labor shortage. Among the activities taking place this year were: Picnic and barbecue in the fall, initiation of Green hands to the Chapter Farmer degree held in Salinas, the annual F. F. A. Barn dance, dinner and show in Salinas, and finally to round up a successful year a picnic and berbecue in the spring. we ,, r- ,, it V v S...

It has resumed interscholastic games with the thought of building stronger bodies and quick thinking minds. For it has been proven that athletes are more Capable of adapting themselves to the Armed Forces curriculum. Due to our interscholastic games new members entered in large numbers. The initiation of new members was held after our football banquet. We did not sponsor a track meet for the grammar schools in our district as in previous years on account of transportation difficulties. 2I saga, 4 Sf . wi Hmm VERENA STUDER First' Semester Editor ELEANOR ROSA ALBERTA ANDERSON Second Semester Co-Editors st X , bg..- if 2 as 5 W .

SPARTAN Putting out the annual this year has been a lot of fun, and I have enjoyed every minute of work. Our sponsors have been very helpful, and I Wish to thank them personally for their co-operation, because without their help our book just wouldn't exist. . The staff that was chosen, proved to be an excellent one: I have never worked with a more co-operative group. Everytime there Was something to do, they were always just too Willing to help. They dug in just like troupers, and really sold ads and annuals. It has been rather hard qettinq pictures developed and getting the materials necessary for an attractive book, but Mr. Force, our director, has done his best to secure the best possible for all.

FORCE, Coach FOOTBALL The 1943 football schedule showed Gonzales playing tive games, with Pacific Grove, Carmel, Hollister and a home game with King City. The high spot ot the season was the Pacific Grove game. The Spartans were trailing 6-0 at half time. They returned, drove to a touchdown, and made the conversion goody winning the game 7-6. In the backfield Ray Belli at quarter, Bob Fellows and Rudy Martinez or Bob Blair as halves and Richard Duran at full made a dangerous combination. Ray Selva, Louis Marquez and Louis Escher alternated at guard. Ernest Piini, Eugene Bonincontri and Richard Mills were stone walls at tackle position. Ends Elmer Stoira and Henry Mocettini held down their positions. Bob Botil and Mike Barchi did a fine job at center. The fact that so many of the boys this year are underclassmen makes the football prospects for next year seem very promising.

VARSITY BASKETBALL The Spartans' Varsity basketball squad had a successful season cor1side1'i1'1Q the size of our school and heiqht of our team. Our first team, Belli, Stoira, Brusa, Fellows and Mocettini averaged about 5' lO" which was very short as com- pared to the rest of the squads. During the season We Won four games while dropping the same amount. The Gonzales varsity held a record they can well be proud of. Out of the total 256 minutes played, Brusa, Fellows, Mocettini and Stoira all played over 225 minutes. Belli missed one qame due to illness, but played over 200 minutes. Stoira was C. C. A. L. hiqh point man with ll2 points and made all C. C. A. L. All the rest of the boys played qood basketball all the tirne, never qivinq up althouqh the odds were always against them.

The only experienced player of inter-school basketball was George Gutierrez, all C. C. A. L. right forward and season high scorer with 110 points. less Marquez, Rudy Martinez and David Souza returned from last year. David's valuable playing and the excellent floor work and scoring of less Marquez added greatly to the team's five victories. Benarbe Aispuro and Ernest Binsaca also proved very valuable. Rudy Martinez held down the center position all season with his fighting spirit. At guards, two ex- cellent players, Art Davila and Louie Giozza played fine ball all season. The three games the lightweights lost were only by one, two and three points. Showing promise for the future are: Rudy Martinez, Louie Giozza, Art Davila, Dave Souza, Gordon Gutierrez, Tony Foster, Iames Pura and Ernie Binsacca. Seniors were Benarbe Aispuro, Alex Aguinid and George Gutierrez. INTRAMURAI. Intramural athletics have held much importance this year. The demands of the armed services for boys who are physically fit has encouraged compe- tition in all sports. Football, basketball, boxing, baseball, obstacle course, cross country, tennis, track and volleyball were played. All boys were encouraged to partici- pate in these sports. The result has been a noticeable improvement in physical condition and body co-or- dination. Equally important is the development of a sense of sportsmanship and teamwork.
