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, counselors. 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.

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 assumed command. 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.

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.
