The Odyssey oT The Class oT 'Sl in iTs journeys To
The Land oT Knowledge began in SepTember, I947,
when The gallanT IiTTIe class oT sixTy-six Freshmen em-
barked upon iTs TirsT expediTion and enTered The
yawning and unexplored porTals of Gonzales High
School under The brave leadership oT Alva Rodri-
gues, PresidenT: BerTha Ramirez, Vice-PresidenT: Joy
GilchrisT, SecreTary, and wise guidance oT Mrs.
LoveTT, Miss Warren, Mr. Hill and Miss Gaddini,
ln Their Frosh ear, The presenT Seniors bore Their
iniTiaTing Trom The upperclassmen wiTh courage. ln
The annual Freshman-Sophomore "Tie-up," The Frosh
boys bowed To upperclassmen buT The plucky Frosh
girls were vicTorious in Their baTTles. The Frosh class
boasTed some ouTsTanding aThleTes on The varsiTies:
J. Jaso, TooTball: Alva Rodrigues, baseball. and
James Moranda, John Daoro, AlberT Hook, Henry
Rianda and ArThur Frolli on Track. AlberT Hook was
an assisTanT Yell Leader.
A large number oT The Freshman boys belonged
To The F.F.A.
Joan Hoye and Sam Lloyd were The only Fresh-
man represenTaTives in The Honor SocieTy. Sam also
was The Freshman represenTaTive on The Annual sTaTT
and PresidenT Alva served on The sTudenT council.
Virginia Simpson, Wanda YaTes, Sam Lloyd, Mary
FlorenTin and Barbara WagsTer were The Frosh who
made band Their TirsT year, while Ophelia Gonzales,
Joan Hoye and Joyce Gilliam were The Frosh song-
sTers in The Glee Club.
In midyear The Freshman class gave Their annual
ReTurn ParTy and enTerTained The Sophomore class
and enTire sTudenT body.
The Class oT '5I sTruck shoals, boTh in Tinances and
acTiviTies, almosT as soon as They embarked upon
Their Sophomore voyage. AT The Freshman-Sopho-
ore Tie-up, The Sophomores losT The baTTIe, and be-
cause oT Tinancial problems could noT enTerTain The
Freshman Class aT iTs cusTomary parTy. ForTunaTely
The Senior Class came To The Sophomores' aid and
The class under The plucky leadership oT Alva
Rodrigues, President Virginia Simpson, Vice-Presi-
denT, and Paul BauTisTa, SecreTary, gave several noon
dances and cake and candy sales ThroughouT The year
To recoup Their Tinancial deTiciencies. Class members

The Class oT '5I was also well represenTed by a
good number oT girls in The Glee Club, Girls' League,
and by boys belonging To The F.F.A.
By The Time These hardy SparTan voyagers were
ready To embark upon The Third parT oT Their Travels
in The search oT knowledge, They had been so buT-
eTed by The waves OT learning ThaT They were worn
and sobered and beginning To assume The serious
digniT They would have as Seniors. This was The
year The girls Took over and The Class of '5I was led
by The Amazon crew oT Ophelia Gonzales, Presi-
denT: Joy GilchrisT, Vice-PresidenT, and BeTTy Lou
