Stands the tower of wood and stone 6 Foreword . This is the Oakland Junior College Oak Log. It is the year in review . . . a pictorial chronicle and a reservoir of memories . . . a galaxy of otherwise irrevocable moments, of feelings, of sights, and of sounds. And above all, the Oak Log presents the people who lived these moments, who had the feelings, who saw the sights and who listened to the sounds. Whether lolling in the cafeteria, sitting leisurely in the sun, pondering academic questions in the classroom, exploring the mysteries of nature in the laboratories . . . urging the Thunder- birds to victory, or strutting briefly but gloriously an hour on the stage, raising voices in the choir . . . we here see ourselves in action. Chief motivating force behind the initial Oak Log is Willialil Rulon who conceived the idea and whose courage and judgment led to its realization. Progress was accelerated by the able assis- tance of Stuart Smith, Associate Editor, whose experiences as Editor of the Tower proved invaluable to the completion of the Log. Credit, too, is due the Student Government Associations and their presidents: George Spowart and Henry Dishroom at Mer- ritt, and Frank Wells and Norman Toly at Laney, for their fore- sight in assisting the crystallization of this original volume. Over-all direction and guidance emanated from "central in- telligencew personified as Dr. John F. Summersette, yearbook advisor, whose experience in the publication of yearbooks and competence did more to transform the Oak Log uideai' into a tangible asset than any other single force. The staff is grateful to Mr. Robert L. Ozias of Lederer, Street and Zeus, Printers, and to Mr. Robert Moon of California Art and Engraving Company, for courtesy, patience, and inspiration. To three photographers, the staff issues especial thanks for competence in photographing the people, the activities: Viales B. Studio of San Francisco, Ross Anderson, Tower photographer, and Francisco Ortiz, Jr., whose creative Leica photographs point to extended yearbook possibilities in 35 mm photography. A special cum laude is due Mr. Edward Abood, Faculty Year- book coordinator for Laney campus, for his diligence, perse- verance and interest beyond the call of duty, and without whose assistance this product might never have been realized. The 1958 Oak Log staff hopes that this book will be one of your cherished possessions and that it will provide you with many mo- ments of pleasant recollections.

Long. ln his first vear as the lnstitution's Director, Dr. Long has listed goals and established blueprints for the pattern of his future eHorts. As chief administrator on the Merritt cam- pus, Dean Blake W. Spencer has worked indefa- tigably to maintain and improve the College,s high academic standards. And Laney's Dean Thomas W. Cole, in his first year as the campus' head administrator, has envisioned expanded services and commensurate quality. The strategic and vital position of Associate Dean of lnstruction on Merritt campus is held by Miss Marian Malloy who has sustained this office since the College's inception and whose efforts have helped Merritt campus to realize enduring values. The responsibility of providing services which are maximum to the development of each stu- dent's personality is the charge of Dean Clyde Fake at Merritt and of Dean Paul Thomas at Laney. Both supervise a comprehensive student personnel program. Business affairs at Merritt come under the range of Assistant Dean James Locke, a familiar figure on the campus. And the multiple duties of the evening schools are handled by Dr. Wil- liam J. Lafferty at Merritt and by Dean Fred- erick Manglcsdorf at Laney. The Colleges administrators lead the way to- ward its strong foundation today. Left: Laney's Dean Thomas W. Cole. Right: Merritfs Dean Blake W.

T I I ' 7 wg' I' l OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF TMI ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF OAKLAND JUNIOR CDLLIGI Stu Smith, Fall Editor, Bonnie Kane, Spring Editor. The college newspaper is the mirror which reflects the past, presents today, and foretells tomorrow. It chronicles the triumphs, the defeats, the aspirations, and the ac- complishments of its young devotees. lt orients the new- comer, boosts school spirit, and provides a challenging activity for the student with a bent for writing. The OIC Tower, which officially began publication in February, 1955. increased its printed space by 50 per cent last fall. With larger-sized paper the staff has been better able to create a more attractive format. Coordinating news coverage for the two campuses has been a problem in the past, but with the inauguration of a journalism class at Laney this spring the situation has improved. Now there are two staffs, one at each campus, and with class time for writing and editing the Tower. The year's staff activities were highlighted by the California Junior College Journalism Association Con- ference at Fresno State in March. Ten staff members and the adviser, Mr. John Gothberg, attended. Three trophies were won by the Oakland delegation. Ross Anderson was awarded a first and third prize in press photography, and Don Bryan won a second in editorial writing. Under the leadership of Stu Smith and Bonnie Kane, editors, and Henry Sultan, Laney editor, 24 issues of the Tower were published, including two eight-page special issues. The Homecoming issue in November included pictures of 23 queen contestants, while the Pioneer Day paper contained many features concerning life in the Old West. The Tower offers an opportunity for students contem- plating a career in journalism to receive practical expe- rience in writing and editing a newspaper. The relaxed, informal-yet dedicated-atmosphere of the journalism classroom provides the climate in which a spark of talent may be fanned into flame. Towerites.

These constitutions call for officers and representatives with an adviser on each campus. On Laney's campus the officers making up the execu- tive council include the president, vice-president, sec- retary, treasurer, and a fifth member. One representative from each class with the title of councilman completes the student council. At Merritt the executive council has a president, vice- president, secretary, treasurer, and a public relations officer. Also at Merritt the councilmen are selected accord- ing to the number ol' students enrolled. Students vote for By Ioyce Howard one candidate for each 200 registered students. Elections are held at the end of each semester for the following term. Three council seats are held open for the incoming students, and at the beginning of the new semester a special election is held for these students. The executive councils of both campuses hold joint n1eetings, and problems involving both campuses are discussed. All activities involving both campuses are gov- erned by the joint council. Funds from the sale of student body cards and from bookstore profits are used by the student council to sponsor traditional events such as the semiannual awards dinner, Pioneer Day, the Talent Assembly, Homecoming, and Laney Cawqbufes If Mock Democracy the WClCOlllC Dance, Student Council elections, and at- tendance at conventions. They also help support athletics and the athletic teams at UJC, and to secure benefits for student body card hold- ers. These benefits include the right to vote in student elections, and the right to hold office. Free admittance to home athletic events, dances, and assembliesg use of the student loungeg use of the recreation room. participation in the athletic program, discounts at local stores and for services at Laney, and a free copy of the school paper, The Tower, are also on the list.

Homecoming War Amon the By Siu Smilh Homecoming at Uakland Junior College this year had a blend of sounds all its own. The potpourri of events resembled a rapid-firing machine gun. A wild scramble captured the routine of things in the happiest-go-luckiest day of the school year. And commingled emotions, ex- citement zmd nostalgia held firm grip as events unfolded. This ycar's spectacle was a 'gfirstw in several respects. There was the Homecoming Parade through downtown Oakland, the Coronation Ball at Colombo's Club, and of course the third annual Homecoming football game which saw the Thunderbirds thunder past the San Mateo Bulldogs by a 34-14 count. So also there was the Home- coming assembly over which George lFireman Frankl l,eMont presided, and the traditional Pizza Feed in Laneyls wonderful cafeteria. Add to these events the flair of showmanship by Rudy Daniels, Dick Taylor, and Ken AleXanderfChairman of the traditional event-and you have the formula for the most successful Homecoming staged by IUC.

With a record field of twenty competing for thc title of UJC Homecoming Queen of 1957, the competition was iso to speakl hot and heavy.

The purpose of the parade was to put on display the beautiful lassies who attend HJC, and to open the eyes of the downtown merchants to the fact that there is an Oakland .lunior College. Both purposes were accom- plished as the gaily decorated convertibles tooted their horns through town calling attention to their lovely passengers. The assembly was a "ball" as LcMont, witty as ever, used remarks never heard by his younger set audience. Each girl took her turn conversing with the Hold fireman." Attendance at the Homecoming Game set all records as a capacity crowd turned out to see the Oakland team eapturc their only win ofthe '57 season. The festive crowd also saw the contestants paraded around the field at half- time. Pizza was in abundanee at the Mfeedn held thc night before the eoronation ball.

PlC1'1EEI' Day CBIBUPBTEU with 5318 Y of Events, Dudes galber' in fha cafeteria for an infornfai xfmg-fcxf. By D011 Bryan f'l'ioneer Day," the gala festival celebrating the early western Mgold rush" days, was celebrated at UJC April 25. Symbolized by the Wearing of western Hpioneeri' cos- tumes, western style field events, a Hwhiskerinow contest, a Belle and Dude of the Ball, Kangaroo Court, the jail for violators of pioneer day tradition plus a general feeling of the 49,er spirit, the event is one of the eollege's most significant. "Pioneer Day" began when a group of students recog- nized the need for an annual event to highlight the spring semester. Viforking in close coordination with the student council, the fraternities, sororities, and clubs, the first pioneer day committee soon established the official pio- neer day rules and regulations covering the affair. Each year the event has increased in popularity and impor- tance. This year it was bigger and better than ever. The celebration began with a gala college hour festival of music and fun, headed by Ronnie Draper, well-known Lfpopsi' guitarist. and the Nob Hill Trio, popular night club musical comedians. The auditorium was packed and the show was the best yet. Ronnie sang two songs accom- panied by the trio, and the Nob Hill Boys performed to the hilarious delight of the audience. One number brought the house down when two Merritt beauties, Bon- nie Kane and Marie Younger were invited to participate in the song, URancho Grande." The two gals added to the comic situation and the audience was really rolling in the aisles. This terrific entertainment was the result of the efforts of Nliss Bonnie 'flielle Starr" Kane, chairman of the en- tertainment committee. The Kangaroo Court, Phil DuVall chairman, had its share of excitement and was ready to burst at the seams with the number of "lawbreakers" being crowded into it. Some of the outlaws needed a little coaxing: one "dude" was assisted by five deputies into the calaboose and to get him in they even locked up one of the deputies. This was quickly corrected but two ubellesw broke loose when they let the deputy out. They were rounded up and brought back by judge Jerry Foreman, sheriff Doug Gar- rison, and his deputy Dennis Stuart with an assist by Sam 'fAce" Ubregon who was riding by looking for "Cayenne', liulon and his saddlebag. The Kangaroo Court was a fac- simile of the pioneer jail. and was constructed by the Laney Carpentry class. There was then a stampede to the field events held on the athletic field. The Tug of Wai' was won by the Co-Rec- reation club. a group of cowpokes who looked like they spent their time wrestling steers. They struggled a bit with the Sigma Delta Sigma fraternity, which gave up when they ran into a little 'Gthunderstormf' There was the annual egg throw, the sack race, and a softball game to finish off the field events. The next scene was the auditorium for the judging of thc f'Belle'i and allude" of the Ball and the Whiskerincr contests, Kirk Rogers chairman. Judges in the contest were faculty members Neil Lucas, Maryjane Dunstan, George lllannen. John Summersette, Marian Pauson, An- gela Sullivan.

Before the nighttime festivities are highlighted one should say a little word for the costumes. "Cayenne" liulon won the consensus as the most typical outlaw even down to the notches in his six-gun. tHe said they were paymcnts.l He had some close competitors in Sam Uhre- gon and Ron Brown. li ich Quigley "Brett" and Don Bryan "Bart Maverick" were there. Doug Morra "indian ,loeu was looking for a squaw . . . Neil HShiftyi' Lucas had the sheriff looking for him over from an old 'iwantedv poster lturned out to he his great-grandad D.

Cuddeback demonstrates a new motion technique. The lithe group, giving a physical interpretation to 111u- sic, use their hands and bodies as media of expression. The dancers learn to glide gracefully, sometimes cautious- ly, and even gleefully across the fioor. Twisting. turning, jumping, and skipping with the rhythm of the music, the group develops poise, balance, and coordination. Soon the dancers above will again commence action, gracefully molding their bodies to the rhythm of the music. Dancing almost to exhaustion, the members here have devoted themselves to an increasingly popular, al- though often misunderstood art. The fuzz Combo lt's late afternoon, and the campus is nearly deserted when the jazz group warms up with those 'acool soundsi' calculated to drive the audiophile towards limbo. Many of the numbers the group plays are composed and arranged by its members under the guidance and su- pervision of Mr. John B. Cirimele. Striving to present an intangible feeling through music, the group remains composed and the smooth sounds flow with an undercurrent of primitive driving rhythm -each member expressing himself with his instrument, sometimes adding, complementing, or leading this vivid group of musical expressionists.

Qaioa Phi Beta Fratewzigz Kappa ici Delta .fororit The fraternity Alpha Phi Beta has been long known as a very close organization and for their good. clean fun. Alpha was O.lC's first social fraternity when it was founded in 1954. The charter members felt that at that time there xx as a need for a social organization of this type when the new students continued to stay with their own high school groups and not make friends with neu people from other schools. One of the things that Alpha members take pride in is that aside from social functions they take it upon themselves to help each other adjust to our society. Beginning this semester the Alpha boys will conduct the school auctions which will be held two or three times a year. The objects auctioned are articles not claimed from the lost and found. Officers for the Fall of 1957 were: Bill Stanley, Presidentg Ron Campos, Treasurerg Dave Schulze. Pledge Mastvrg and Gordon Keller, Pledge President. Spring officers were: Ron Campos, Presidentg Frank Sauer. Sec- retaryg Sonny Singerman, Treasurer, Cordon Keller, Sergeant-ab Armsg Bob Atkins, Pledge Master, and Willie Freeborn, Pledge President. The members of Kappa Phi Delta take great pride in their organi- zation and membership because Kappa was the first sorority to be formed at O.lC. Kappa received its charter in 1954. The members of Kappa are known for their friendliness and their girl is not taken into Kappa for her has a good personality and a desire interest in school support.

However, had it not been for the extra mileage gotten out of such stalwarts as Guard Tom Basile, who made Junior College All-American, and End Paul Schrcilicr, who set an OJC pass receiving record, snagging 24 during league play, the T-Bird season would have heen a dismal affair. Key injuries to the all-important spot of Quarterback forced the Uakland team to change from the T-l7orma- tion oHense to the variety of the single wing. Going into their first encounter against the highly regarded San .lose Jaguars, the T-Birds found themselves outweighed and lacking needed experience as they were howled over 37-6 on a muddy Bushrod Field, and in the process lost QB Stan Peters for the season. The Asian flu hug flying around the country caused the scheduled Shasta JC-Oakland JC tilt to hc canceled. Opening the league games, thc ,Birds hosted the 1956 Big Eight champion-Stockton Mustangs. The power- packed herd exploded for a 46-16 victory over the under- manned, inexperienced Daklanders. The host team's scoring came on a driving 26-yard 1'un hy Dave Littleton -a speedy fullback from Texas-and two safeties scored hy a hard-charging line, led by Rich Wells, Carroll Wr'ight, and Basile. lnvading spacious Hughes Stadium on the Sacramento JC campus, the visiting Oakland team found hospitality lacking as they became hewitchcd under the stadium lights hy a fahulous passing combination thrown at them hy the Panthers. This resulted in their second league loss, 34-13. The Thunderhird six-pointers were scored by half- hack Roosevelt Sloan on a 4-0-yard punt return, and on Tailback Larry All1right's short plunge culminating a 66-yard drive.

Spearheading the Oakland comeback were runs by Quarterback Bill Steen on a 27-yard skirt down the sidelines, and Halfhack Lionel Hankins' twist- ing run for the final T-Bird tally making the count read 18-12. lf the improving Thunderbirds deserved to win a game it was the heartbreakcr they dropped to a strong Modesto eleven on the latter's turf-worn field. The Pirates scored first within three minutes of the opening quarter and from that point on it was all Thunderbird. A strong defense led by linemen Willie Love, Don Wheelock, Joe Crismon, ,lack For- est, and Basile stopped play after play as they pushed the Modestomen all over the field. But the offense could not get started and was shut out C0111- pletely, 7-0. Xvithout a doubt the Oakland team reached its peak in the annual Homecoming game against the San Mateo Bulldogs. Before a near capacity crowd the Thunderbirds ran wild as they chalked up their only victory scoring five touchdowns and four extra points for a total of 34 to the barkless Bulldogs' 13. Sparked by the running of the injured Sloan, Leon Silas, Littleton, the passing of Steen and Albright, and the pass receiving of Ends Schreiber and Bill Herrera, the T-Birds looked like the strongest team in the conference. Good fortune was not destined to remain with the 'Birds however, as they journeyed to Richmond only to he put down by the "not-to-be-denied" Vvest Contra Costa Comets, 13-0. Fumbles at strategic points ended all Thunderbird th reats. The only Oak- land bright spot in the game was the signal calling of still another Oakland QB, ,lim Pekkain. With determination to produce a winning eHfort in their last game of the season against the Bear Cubs of Santa Rosa, the fired-up Calliesmen, be- hind Halfbaek Rich tBebopt NlcKinney's running, looked as though they would push the Cubbies right off their own field as they rolled to a 21-0 lead in the opening minutes of the game.

Oakland jumped off to a quick 20-9 lead, but dog-tired from tourney play, they were speedily overtaken. When llawkins fouled out with five minutes left it was a fin al blow and the Big lfiight champs bowed, 57-47. Consolation honors went to the 'Birds as Wrayne Olson, play-making guard, was named to the All-Tournament team. Olson was also voted as the most valuable player h. to is team by the tourney committee. League Action Combine the best defensive 1021111 in the nation, and the winners of the Big Eight Basketball conference with a 14-0 record. and you have the aggregation that proudly represented Oakland Junior College l ' ' , . g , 1 urlng the 1957-58 season. Success was the keynote for the Jcltes all season long from the opening tipoff to the final buzzer. Opening the season against the strong San .lose JC live, Oakland had to go into an overtime period to down the eventual Coast Conference champs, 58-53. Next on the list were the Santa Clara lfrosh. The visit- ing T-Birds dropped a listless -l-6-41 decision to the Bronco team. Another defeat came at the hands of the 'Qloadedn Saint lVlary's Frosh, 64-50. This Gaelet team was heralded by most experts as the best Frosh team in the nation. Practice wins numbers 2. 3. and 4 were gained over East Contra Costa's Vikings 67--19, Vallcjo's Redskins 53-39, and Napais Chiefs as they also fell by the wayside 62-39. The Colden Valley Conference ehamps College of M- . 1 . .N , arm administered the last loss for OJC until the final game of the Bakersfield Tournament, 58-40. The Thunderbirds arrived in the Southland intent on capturing the San Bernardino lnvitational Tournament. Last year they took a second plaeeflosing out to Wlodcsto in the final game. 51-47. This time the 'Birds ran rough- shod over Chaffey 65-45, San Bernardino 60-52, and River- side 64-48 to take all honors and first place. One more warm-up game before league play started found the T-Birds knocking over the Naval Air Station Hellcats 59-51 at the Air Base court. Arriving on the Modesto .lC campus, the Thunderbirds left an impression to be remembered as they completely overwhelmed the Pirates 78-41. Coach Rockwell cleared his bench in an effort to keep the score down. Santa Rosa's Bear Cubs were the next to feel the bite of the 'Birds, as they were downed 57-43 on the Merritt court. Ed fStorkl Donahue potted 23, and spring-legged Hawkins, 14-to lead the host team. Perhaps the turning point of the season came in the '4Thundering', Birds' third league encounter. Oakland played host to a strong City College of San Francisco five. The T-Birds needed this "must" game and they got it in a most dramatic finish. Down 44-40 with but 1:10 left, the 'Birds came on strong behind playmaker Wayne Ol- son's intercepted pass-scoring play, Buss Wickwirc's two clutch free throws tying the score, and Joe ,lohnson's jumping set shot with only six seconds left. Needless to say, pandemonium reigned and the score read Oakland 46 . . . City College 44. A tougher than expected College of San Mateo Bulldogs opposed the Oaklanders next. Once again behind the 23 points of Hawkins and some spirited fan support finclud- ing the now famous, explosive bass druml the high flying T-Birds were victorious 61-51 at the 'Dogs gym. The big one was next. The rivalry with West Contra Costa has grown since 1954. Both the 1957 T-Bird-Comet contests did nothing but substantiate the feeling of the schools toward each other. Shades of the S.F. 49'ers were visible in the visiting Oaklanders, 52-51 victory in the first encounter between the two. Once again the clutch performances of Olson, Johnson and especially Wick- wire led the way. Wick's free throws with twenty seconds remaining turned the tide in Oakland's favor, and left them all alone in first place. Trainer Ken Coleman flefti and Coach Bill Rockwell fright! cast smiles toward their 24-4 season record. Stocktonis Mustangs invaded the compact gym of Oak- land next, only to be corraled by a 63-49 count. Minus the services of forward Wickwire, who managed to obtain the mumps, the Blue and Gold Baskcteers headed for Sacramento to do battle with the Panthers of the capitol city. Despite the officiating, the visitors came out on top, 54-39. A return engagement with Modesto proved just as dis- astrous to the Pirates as the first meeting. The host team scored 73 to the hapless Pirates' 36. HRock" cleared his bench and played Hank Wellington, Fran Friedman, and Don fTech. foulj Melen most of the game. The ten-man squad which finished the season are fl-ri! : Rufus Hawkins, guard, Wayne Olson, guardg Don Melen, forward, Steve Riggins, center, Russ Wi4'kw'ire, forwardg Ed Donahue, forwardg Joe Johnson, centerg Fran Friedman, forwardg Bob Laird, forwardg Hank Wellington, guardg Paul Waar, manager. Coach Rockwell and Trainer Coleman are kneeling. 1 Spirited cheerleaders Yvonne Smith, Nina Susana Doug Garrison, and ,lim Kreihel produced noise and enthusiasm. The Roekmen went Bear Cuh hunting in Santa Rosa and carrie hack with the hides they wanted, 74-47. ,loe ,lohnson's 22 tallies led the onslaught. Another "big one" against the CCSF Hams saw the 'Birds out on top 55-51. However it looked had for the East Bayers until the arrival of the tradition-earrving liass drum, pictured on page 55. The booming sounds of the dflllll, which lieeanie known all over the league. pieked up the T-Birds and pushed them to victory. Four of the Oakland starters hit for double figures. Hawkins led the Captain Wfayne Olson accepts his team trophy from smiling Bill Rockwell at the liar-ketlrall Award Uinnt r way with l8. Another rout was on the agenda for the 'I'-Birds as they found the scrappy San filateo Bulldogs no match and muzzled them T8-51. The st-oring was evenly distributed with Ed fStork1 Donahue getting l6 points and 15 re- bounds. Revenge was on the mind of the VQVCC Comets as they visited the Nlerritt Gym in an effort to derail the unde- feated express of the Blue and Colders.

This victory clinched the title for the new champs. Final wins against Stockton 64-53 and Sacramento 74- 49 were anticlimactic. The league champs became the first team to capture the championship undefeated. Going on to the state championships the T-Birds finished with a 24-fl season record, chalkcd up the most wins for any UJC basketball team, won 20 games in a row for another ree- ord, and hroke the national defensive record set by Cam- eron, Oklahoma, hy allowing their opponents only 48.5 points per game. More individual honors came 0akland's way as Rufus Hawkins, who wound up as Oaklandis top scorer with 444 points and a 15.8 season average, and Gflulllping Joei' Johnson, the rehounding center, were named to the first string All-Big Eight team. 4 23 get as ,Y-cf",-if-P-...

Rene Rogers and Don Lee opened activities by taking one-two in the mile with Rogers being clocked in 4130.5 to set a new school standard which lasted only a week. Len Noles was a douhle victor in the sprints, winning the 100 in 9.9 and the 220 in 22.2 despite having a pulled muscle in his left leg.

In beating Modesto for the first time, Hallstone found it made up for last year's hu- miliating 108-13 druhbing at the hands of the Pirates. Leading the T-Birds were Len Noles and Sam Perry, both double winners. Noles took the sprints, as he did every meet, in 10.2 and 21.8, while Perry was clocked in 15.4 and 24.3 in the hurdles. The 'ggold dust twins," Rogers and Lee, both broke school records once again, Rogers took a second in the mile with a fine 4:23.13 clock- ing and Lee a second in the 380 with a 1:59.5. ln the half, Lee beat Northern California leader Tom Brown of Modesto and former state champ from Berkeley High, Henry Dorsey. ln their only home appearance of the season at distant Castlemont High, the 80-degree weather hrought out some really great marks.

Noles' time would have been good enough to win last year's National AAU meet. Perry was caught in the fast time of 14.9 in the high hurdles for a Bay Area best and won the 180 lows in 18.9, beating out San Fran- cisco's great Leroy Thomas who had taken fourth place in last year's State .lunior College championships. Oakland journeyed next to Palo Alto where they bested the Stanford Frosh and West Contra Costa. In this meet, the T-Birds' thinclads won every race including the relay. Noles won sprint duels over West's great Rudy Jackson. Noles had to come from behind in the last 10 yards to win the century in 9.8 hut he won the 220 a little easier in 21.6 over the shorter Jackson. Bill Webster and Don Lee produced the best Oakland marks of the day. Webster won the 440 in school record time of 50.3, and Lee the 880 in 1:58.6. Next came the San Francisco State Relays in which Oakland relay teams established three relays records. A quartet of Webster, Bob Grissom, Perry, and Noles won the 440 relay in 42.1, the fastest mark for JC's in the nation in the past two years, and the 880 relay in 1:28.7. In the distance medley relay the foursome of Bill Webster, Billy Minor, Lee and Rogers set a new mark of 10:42.3. Three days later against Santa Rosa, Don Lee finished a brilliant two-year Oakland career by breaking a bone in his foot while run- ning the mile. Rogers made up for it in the two, running a la uMax Truexn and winning by half a lap in the fine time of 9237.8 for a school best. Fred Bright pole vaulted 12-1 for another school mark. Probable winners and point makers in the Big Eight Conference meet were Noles, whose only competition would come from Jackson of the Comets, and Perry who was a cinch winner in the lows and favored in the highs over the Comet's Phil Clifton. Rogers, Oakland's distance "machine,' could be a possible winner in both the mile and the two-mile over strong competition from Modesto. Oakland could figure highly in the California State Junior Col- lege Championships with Noles and Perry certain to qualify along with Rogers for the big affair. Lee, until his injury, was figured on as a possible surprise winner in the 380. Other men who may possibly qualify are DeDominico and Webster hut they will have to show marked improvement over past per- formances. All in all, Oakland has done remarkably well with the lack of team depth they have had and coach Hallstone is to be congratulated on a job well done.

Behind the plate the T-Birds had Phil Bouthillier and .lesse Murdock. Bouthil- lier played with Oakland last season and Murdock with Humboldt. A li ' f - - t rst base was veteran Bob Gayou who was hitting .300, and one of the team's leaders in runs batted in. Second base was manned by the reliable Percy Harris who was one of last yearis League standouts at shortstop. Percy was the leadoff batter and was largely re- sponsible for keeping the Thunderbirds in the running for the title. Don Louie filled the shortstop position very well. He came from Tech High where he was also an All-OAL selection. Rounding out the starting infield was veteran George Dunphy, a mainstay for the past two seasons. Dunphy was the team leader in bases on balls. The outfield was manned by Washington, Walt King, ex-star from McClymonds, and Harv Hanson from Castlemont.
