Again the curtain is drawn on another year at P. U.
H. S., leaving only memories to add to that ever
growing album. The student executives worked ex-
ceedingly hard because of the general chaotic condi-
tions of the world, to make this year a success.
Along with the many regular duties and activities
managed by the executives, among which were the
Frosh reception. arrangements for athletic games, and
student body dances, the year brought forth new war
The "Scrap Drive", which succeeded in bringing in
over one hundred and fifty dollars, not only helped
the student body treasury, but also started many
valuable materials in circulation again.
Large, small, and medium sized keys belonging to
everything from piggie banks to grandfather clocks,
were dropped into the "jug" during the successful
"Key Drive", which helped the government obtain
the metal so vital to the war.
The sale of Defense Stamps was another move direc-
ted by the student executives. Stamps led to bonds,
and bonds led to a very prosperous "Jeep Drive".
The year was climaxed by "Color Day" at which
Betty Maxson and Jean Jaureguy were crowned Mr.
and Miss P. U. H. S. To enliven the sale of stamps
and bonds, the executives worked up the clever
scheme of having each cent spent on defense count
as one vote for a favorite senior boy and girl.
The school picnic at Baldwin Park closed 1942-43,
making it a year that will be long remembered bv
all those who attended P. U. H. S.
