They were rewarded for their enthusiasm, however, when basketball came along and the Monarchs boasted a winning squad. Enthusiasm, not only in athletics but in all facets of college life, has been in evidence this year at Valley. Possibly the new buildings helped revive the school spirit Valley was known for when the college first started. In this school year 1961-62, the col- lege campus has begun to take on an air of permanence. The many arcades join the new buildings and establish a mall at the heart of the campus. Buildings for special activities have provided modern permanent facil- ities to replace the bungalows of the asphalt jungle. Monarchs, '62 version, will remem- ber that they were the first to use the new drama building, the first one of its kind on a junior college campus in California. Here is a complete theater-main stage, horseshoe stage, classroom stage, dressing rooms and even showers. - E831 W' .pa-A' A Step up the ladder of Success The drama department initiated it by the presentation of the three act ,play "Dark of the Moon" by Howard Richardson and William Berney. Enthusiasm in drama students is reflected in attendance at plays. "Public response is good," says Ernest P. Mauk, head of the drama department. "During the 10 perform- ances of 'Summer and Smoke' in the Little Theater bungalow, we had an attendance of only 390. 'Dark of the lVloon,' the first play in the new building, brought in 1,600 persons in six performances." In agreement with Mauk's view is Duane Ament, drama major. Al- though he attended two other col- leges before coming to Valley, Ament says that equipment at Valley is "the best I've ever used in my theater experience." Not only the actors but also the college musicians experienced the thrill of using a new building for the first time. And this building is not just another classroom building with a piano moved in. Of the new building, Richard Knox, head of the department, says, "It is the most beautiful and func- tional music building in the city." Spaciousness of the new building was expressed by Diana Ingalls, music student, when speaking of the "great feeling of not being so crowded." Students.and teachers alike feel that new spirit has been added to the department along with the new building. The ability, of being able to use any one of the five teaching sta- tions without conflicting with the other four is appreciated by Valley's musicians after use of the small bungalow across Ethel Avenue. Replacing the two temporary bungalows used as a cafeteria is a spacious new cafeteria with large dining rooms, small dining rooms and outdoor eating area. Traditional college bull sessions over a cup of coffee are always in progress during the school day. A sign of Vc1IIey's phenomenal growth is the crowded Administration building during registration time. b M rj Q K is N .',. - -5-1 fe- Si u.. Typical of Valley's instructors is Dr. Aura-Lee Ageton, who is always happy to be of help to students. Ralph Caldwel1's basketballers used the new Men's Gym for the first time this year, and loyal rooters en- joyed watching the players in their striking new suits in the well-lighted gym. Athletes at Valley held a second official dedication preceding the first basketball game. They felt that the guest speaker at the original dedica- tion in the spring didn't have his heart in it. Speaker at the original affair was Dr. Robert Maynard Hutchins, who abolished football when he was president at the Uni- versity of Chicago. v wg VALLEYKS' NEW LIFE continued Up, up and over Along with last year's permanent classroom buildings, four of them, an administration building and a library, the new 1962 buildings begin to give Valley a feeling of finally becoming a college. Camping out days on the Valley campus are "fading away." Promise of more in the future keeps spirits high for those who still crowd into the bungalow area at the corner of Burbank Boulevard and Ethel Avenue. In one more year, Fall '63, the journalism and photography depart- ments will move into a permanent facility. Other departments looking forward to Fall '63 as V-Day are art, mathematics, earth science, home economics and business. Probably one of the most sensa- tional and practical additions will be the planetarium. But all will not be complete until another bond issue is passed. If bonds are passed this J une, then Valley will be assured of a complete permanent college campus. Greater and greater numbers of students enroll at Valley. More than 12,000 registered during the fall semester - 5,000 day and 7,000 eve- ning students. The spring enrollment set a new record again. For 12 years in a row the spring roster went up. There are 410 teachers, 160 day and 250 evening. Guarding against bigness to the detriment of the individual student stands the college president, William J. McNelis. Valley must never lose sight of the importance of the individual, he says. "We are growing very rapidly, but I can assure you that members of the staff will at all times be interested in their students as individualsf' 4-1 ag? , ., ,,....A.. , ,f.M,-' Q -"' - f' 23.

Corman, Attorney General Stanley Mosk and State Senator Richard Richards in a series of political forums. The parade of notables does not stop with politicians. The Athenaeum sponsored such well-known persons as Dr. Willard Libby, the Reverend Martin Luther King and Ogden Nash. A new interest in the college has been shown this year by Monarchs in their reaction toward campus publications. The Valley Star, college paper and winner of 14 consecutive all-American awards, found it neces- sary to increase the number of copies printed from 3,000 to 4,500 to keep the paper stands filled. Sceptre, eve- ning magazine, upped its number of pages from 16 to 20. And the Execu- tive Council voted to give Crown, being published for the second year as a magazine-type annual, free of charge to holders of student body cards. entertainment ends in the modermstlc Theater Arts building But most important of all, the cur- riculum at Valley provides an educa- tion for the ambitious students at- tending. This year Valley offered 250 courses in 50 different fields, Dr. Stewart Marsh, dean of curriculum, says. High standards of achievement are evidenced by success of Valley grad- uates, both by those who transfer to four-year colleges and universities and those who prepare for a vocation after obtaining an associate in arts degree. Admission requirements are chang- ing from an "open-door" to a "revolv- ing door," President McNelis says. He was referring to a tightening of academic standards, typical of 1961- 62. Students at Valley respond to this increased demand on their ability by superior achievement. Yes, Los Angeles Valley College is different. A versati Ie ma n Ready to cope with any situation In a college Where the administration 'is geared to giving the students the best educa- tion possible with the best facilities possible, William J. McNelis stands as the head of a staff that makes individual guidance a con- stant Watchword. President of Los Angeles Valley College since September, 1959, McNelis, a Warm- hearted Irishman, keeps his office door open to all students and receives them as one V L,,.s ., would close friends, giving to each caller in turn his undivided attention and a ready smile to put him at ease. A college president who drives a Volks- Wagen, McNelis is part and parcel of student life. Having worked his way through school, he understands the problem of the student who must pay his own Way. "You name it and I did it," he says of his own college employment. Never to busy to welcome ci visitor, President McNelis pauses in his paper work to flash a friendly smile.

Equal to any situation, game or dance President McNelis and some members of the faculty take time off to enioy the thrills and suspense ofa game. The step-saving invention of the telephone is one ofthe things for which President Caught in a moment of intense concentration at a game are President McNeIis and his companion, Walter Coultas. Closeness to the students is important to McNelis as president and, with his Wife, Doris, and their two sons, Steve and Don, he attends almost every athletic event at Valley. Here is a college president Whose interest centers in the student, Whether at club day, an athletic event or in the classroom. President McNelis says, "Valley College is constantly searching for the best means pos- sible to serve the student and the com- munity. The purpose of every activity, cur- ricular or co-curricular, is to serve the needs of the individual. Every effort is made by the staff to give the student in attendance an opportunity to demonstrate his ability to succeed." Popular with both students and faculty, this college president has a personal integrity that rings true. Beneath his quick wit lies a seriousness and belief in education. McNelis is eternally grateful. 1 .3 ii.. SM' Deollcateol to youth Stauffer first student body president does when he sends 'flowers to Dean Royer at the beginning , 0 of each school year Retiring after 13 years with Valliey Col- lege, Mrs. Nena Royer, dean of student activ- ities, will end 45 years in the service of youth. The first dean selected for the Valley College administrative staff, she chose to work as close to the students as possible. A popular adviser in every student activ- ity, Dean Royer often finds her calendar crowded from early until late, but with re- markable ease, appointments come and go as smoothly as guests drifting in and out of an "open house." With no hint of pressure, without clock watching, Mrs. Royer receives students in her office as graciously as guests in her home and, like a doting parent, displays an entire wall of her office lined with photographs of student body presidents, each picture cap- tioned with the student's name, class year and the Royer touch: the student's nickname. "Students are my life," she often has said, laughingly telling how frequently they refer to her as "Mother" 'tIt's a privilege and a responsibility to work with young people, and every student is entitled to be treated as a teacher would want his own child treated." "Find the good and build on it" is the philosophy of the dean, who has never been known to say an unkind word about anyone. "I love young peoplef, says Dean Royer, who teaches not by book alone, but by under- standing as well. Demonstrating an almost unmatched rap- port with Valley students, her enthusiasm fosters and typifies Valley's college spirit. "The way to stay young," she says "is to work with youth. The way to die young iS to try to keep up with them." l l ' candidates are ifront rowl Monica Schubert, Toni Peters, Miriam Elbaum and Shirley Green, iback rowl Lynn Kurz, Teddi Segovia, Lina Hadi, Anita Krohn and Evelyn Hulan, l l 4' 'ww f Dean Royer, surrounded by aspirants for the Queen's crown, plays no favorites.

Having the welfare of the individual student at heart, administrators in this college direct and help in every facet of learning. Heading up education at Valley are the deans and assistant deans. The most important aspect of a college education-classroom learn- ing - is headed by Dr. Stewart Marsh, dean of instruction. Dr. Marsh spends his time bringing the "Moderator" Samuel Alexander, acting assistant dean of instruction, leads Valley College faculty players in a true-to-life version of "Open End." Conversation at these coffee breaks covers a wide range of topics, often returning to talk of students and student problems. James Cox, assistant dean of student activities, and Don Click, dean of the Evening Division, show delight during half time at the Homecoming football game. Deans Click and Cox were in constant attendance at football games, always showing interest in student activities. Valley administrators very best instructors to Valley. Con- cerning those instructors, Dr. Marsh says: "All instructors at Valley have been carefully selected. They are Well prepared and competent in their teaching fields. Tests of Valley Col- lege students who have transferred to universities and four-year colleges bear out the excellence of the teach- ing at Valley." Aiding Dean Marsh is Samuel Alexander, assistant dean of instruc- tion.

Direction and help Seven deans Icon tinuedj Although a log Was all Mark Hop- kins needed in the Way of buildings and facilities to teach his students, Valley College students are being provided with the very latest equip- ment and classrooms. Kermit Dale, dean of special serv- ices, is heading the detailed building program presently in progress here. The year 1961-62 finds Valley in the middle of Phase Ill and planning for Phase IV. Dale likes the job of Working with architects, cont-ractors and teacher committees, for he knows learning will be aided by suitable physical facilities. Right at the heart of Valley College l 8 is the office of admissions and guid- ance under the direction of Dr. John Reiter. In many colleges, the word "registrar" is used to identify the per- son in charge of admissions. At Val- ley the very title "dean of admissions and guidance" signifies the philoso- phy of the college. Giving the student guidance both academically and voca- tionally, when he enters the college, While he attends and as he graduates, falls under the leadership of Dr. Reiter. A student here is a person, not a statistic. Experiences and learning are not confined to the classroom but include social, political and cultural aspects of a college education. Such activities fall under the direction of dean and assistant dean of activities. For 13 years Mrs. Nena Royer has been dean of activities. Assisting Mrs. Royer this year is James Cox. Student gov- ernment, the direct responsibility of Cox in 1961-62, has been different from other years at Valley in that student leaders have pioneered in such areas as leading the fight tO legalize fraternities and sororities on junior college campuses. The em- phasis placed on all such activities shows a resurgence in school spirit. Dean Donald Click and Dr. Helena Hilleary, assistant dean, are in charge of the evening division. The planning of curriculum and activities for 6,500 Night school students are greeted by assistant decm Dr, Helena Hillec1ry's friendly smile and worm personality. Seven deans Kcontinuedj evening students is placed in their hands. Dean Click pioneered in the junior college area by establishing the evening division magazine Sceptre. The student at Valley is the center of thought in the minds of all deans and assistant deans, for they are aware that it is for the student that Valley exists. J . ' -, v-Y-1. 1 .J Tribute to i Dean Ness: Active participant in faculty affairs was the late Dean Robert Nassi, who had a friendly smile for every occasion. Flags flew af half most ln honor of Dean Nclssl If Albert Einstein had been a personal friend of Valley College's late dean Robert N assi, it would be conceivable to believe that he Wrote the following with the beloved educator in mind: "Only a life lived for others is a life worth liv- ingf' Robert Nassi was a 24-hour-a-day administrator. He was a man Whose entire body, heart and soul were dedi- cated to the betterment and advance- ment of other human beings. Dean Nassi came second. At least to himself he did. But for the countless number of young people he counseled and aided, there was no one Who could be praised with higher esteem. f'The death of Robert Nassi was a deep personal tragedy to his colleagues here," said William J. lVlcNelis, presi- dent of the college. "It was an even deeper loss to the youth of the San Fer- nando Valley. No one I have known Was more dedicated to serving youth. Thousands of young people Who have attended Valley College Were helped and guided by his kindness and Wis- dom." Yes, Dean Robert Nassi is dead. But the Wizardry of his expert counsel- tations, his thoughtfulness, his kindness, his love and his devotion to others Will long live on. -si-. it ,t xi A packed house, featuring the Four Preps, boosts the morale for the approaching Homecoming game. Homecoming Queens and princesses galore, floats aplenty, dancing, ban- ners, pigskins and miles of smiles. All a part of Homecoming, 1961. Everywhere faces were filled with excitement over what would come. It started with a week of elaborate publicity and voting for the individual club-sponsored candidates, spread to the Home- coming dance and crowning of an unbelieving Toni Peters, continued with a rally featuring the Four Preps in an hour of fine entertainment and was climaxed in a gridiron clash be- tween the ELA Huskies and Valley Lions. Q Before the crowning of the queen and her court, the campus saw an exuberant amount of sign and picture displaying to introduce the candidates to the student body. Elaborate ideas were put into effect. Helium-filled ballons that didn't stay up in the air and a sailboat that had no way of sailing were among l96l the many eye catchers. p s - Voting booths were kept busy with eager students casting their X's for favorite candidates, keeping the tabulators on their toes with ballot counting. Cn the night of the Homecoming dance, Carol Rohrbach, commissioner of student activities, stepped tolthe mike and announced the traditional words, "Homecoming queen for 1961 . . . Toni Peters!" Festivities were kept in full swing as the Four Preps took over in a rally that had a fully packed gymnasium in continuous applause and frequent bursts of laughter. Gary Patterson, head yell leader, took a hand, leading the bouyant group in a yell before the Preps were introduced.. Emotions were mixed as the Monarch playing field was the setting for the final event. Football: Valley vs. East Los r i 4 4. . .f W Angeles. Highlight of the game was an 85 yard kickoff return by Tom Nunno that resulted in the most spectacular touch- down of the season. At the half, a "cool', and windy one, floats were the main point of interest. One of the clubs performed the "March of '76," in bandaged array, the band and Monarchettes performed with spiritive gusto and a cheerful cry hit the air as the floats began their trek before the stadium audience. Queen Toni delivered her official speech as the second half of play got under way, and an excitement-filled Homecoming was ended. Just ask Toni Peters, the football players, the clubs, the princesses or anybody that participatccl. They will verify what has been true of the previous Homecomings: Vallcy's greatest endowment is spirit. Digg 'E' Scurcely cable to believe her good fortune, Queen Toni Peters is all smiles in spite of herself. 'FII . I almost died when it was announced ln the limelight, Queen Toni and her lovely court show happiness over their wins. As they mature, most people realize that they Will never run for that Win- ning touchdown or be elected Queen of the May. Toni Peters was one of these before her election as Valley's 1961 Homecoming Queen. "When I was nominated, I was thrilled to death," she said. "But deep down inside I felt it was something that could never be." Toni, a lovely 5-foot 2-inch coed, says that next to sports cars and Val- ley's Sports Car Club her main inter- est is people. "It might sound corny, but I really do like people. And that includes everybody!" she says. "People, of course, make our world go roundg so We should all learn, or strive to accept the fact, that we are our brother's keepers." Trophies in abundance for would be winners are brought in by instructor Angelo Villa, who regularly helps with college dances. You Could see the excitement on every face Helping to create more enthusiasm, Queen Toni and princesses Lynn Kurz, Teddi Segovia, Shirley Green and Monika Schubert make their appearance at the rally.

Combine with a 3.3 grade average and a 28-hour-a-Week job, and the grand total is Penny Jo Williams, versatile as Well as outstanding. "At one time or another," says Penny, "I had set my sights for two careers before deciding on dental hygine. I Was considering profes- sional singing and elementary school teaching." Not until Dr. Robert F. Brandon, dentist and mayor of Burbank, told her of the dental practice While she Was sitting in his dental chair did she become interested in the profession. "While I have thought of many career jobs that might suit me, there is now no doubt that I will follow up dental hygiene after I finish Valley, even though I still love singing as a hobby," she remarked. Penny, who Was graduated from high school with straight A's in her senior year, came to Valley "to mature." She says, "I didn't plan originally on entering college, but I Wanted to be enlightened and develop my study habits." While the road to success in dental hygiene is not a simple one, Penny displays the caliber and interest in science to make the road an easier path to travel. ' 1 1 1 WY' . -ff -- Oops!

Slosson, associate professor of geology, started off by saying, "I know you've all been on Mulholland Drive, but have you seen it by daylight?" After the general laughter had abated, he added, "This entire region is a geological 'gold mine' Its geographical features, its multitude of fossils all tell us stories of pre- historic man and ages? Curiosity about this location so close to home brought out a record number of stu- dents for this field trip. Homer Anderson, instructor of earth science, goes along on many of these trips to explain how geography affects man and its uses to him. In this Way the study of this area was amply covered, and students found this a most practical and popular Way to acquire useful and interesting knowledge. Jr' X 1 xxx!!! w1M,.1M,,,.

A , ' N' " T e After Ray Elias, a Valley pre-med maior, made his way to the Placement Bureau with the idea of finding a part time iob, he was hired by Vita Minerals Corp. as a laboratory assistant. Magnet for job seekers Raymond Elias, taking the few steps that led him through the Placement Bureau door, confronted the smiling face of Mrs. Marion Van Meter, placement interviewer. Like many another student, Elias was searching for a job opening that would be in line with his course of study, that of a pre- med major. Sitting down, Elias told Mrs. Van Meter what he had in mind. Inspecting a long list of possible choices, luck ran true as she found exactly what he had hoped for-employment as a laboratory assistant. In visiting the Placement Bureau with the idea of securing this particular type of job, Elias was taking one of the early steps toward his long range career plan, specializa- tion in neurology. Employment in an educational position through the Placement Bureau allows for an outlook' of advancement even while still taking college courses. After initial place- ment, an active concern is taken with the student as to how he is getting along in his job. This attitude is taken to keep intact the amiable relations that have become a trade- mark of the bureau. The Placement Bureau was set up as a small operation by Mrs. Mary Bruick in 1950. At the time she was the only person involved. Mrs. Bruick engineered the production of what is now called the Occupational Explora- tion Series. In 1953 she turned to full-time counseling. At length Dr. Dallas Livingston-Little, placement coordinator, and Mrs. 'Marion Van Meter were put in charge of the system, which ha sexpanded into a full-time estab- lishment. I After some ll years the bureau has sprung into an operation that places on the average of 10 to 12 students per week in jobs. In September almost 100 students were placed, the largest amount to that date. Hopes are in order for just as large numbers of students in the future. Meanwhile, back on the job, Ray Elias is happy that he took those short strides that led him to the door displaying the sign "Placement Bureau." As happy as the many others. Not all students plan to be a part of the medical profession as does Elias, of course, but there are other jobs to be filled in other areas. The Placement Bureau is an integral part of the college, referring the forward- looking student to jobs throughout the Val- ley and showing the employer just what Valley College stands for . . . friendliness. Mrs. Marion Van Meter, placement interviewer since 1953, displays a radiant smile following the successful placement of Ray Elias in a part time iob. .Y rp Dr. Dallas Livingston Little part time counselor as well as placement coordinator sets 'forth details with Ray Elias as to his duties on the lob If 5 Even in the most '1-ifnble defeat there can be glory. Maybe it's not alwa , the grand type, with the crowd screaming wildly on its feet for its triumphant team and grandest gladiators, but there can be a more sophisticated type, one of deep, personal feeling, knowing that one has tried. This is the feeling which has been that of Valley College's "twin stars," Ismael Uuniorj Morales and Herb Griffin. They have proved well that willingness plus ability are almost always rewarded, though quite often the form may come in varied shapes. "It's a hard thing," relates Junior, Valley's ace end, "to try to make a team into something it isn't. At first I felt sorry for the rooters in the stands, but that soon stopped when I realized that they knew what they 'were seeing and loved every minute of it. They gave us credit for the one thing we didn't lack-DRIVEV' Drive is nothing new to Ismael Morales. With over five years of high school and college experience behind him, Junior knows well what it is to win as well as lose. As a member of Howard Taft's successful '59 and '60 Valley All-Stars, Junior received training which he definite- ly feels helped enable him to shine as radiantly as he did this season. The other glowing star from Valley College's 1961 grid- VaIIey's iron squad is Herb Griffin. The powerfully built linebacker has been money in the bank all season for Valley linemen. Against Bakersfield, especially, a team picked by most of the experts as one of the finest junior college teams in the history of the Metropolitan League, Griffin repeatedly was the key man in most of the game's important plays. Many feel Valley might not have ever had possession of the ball if it wasn't for the playing that night of Herb Griffin. The versatile Griffin is an outstanding performer in any spot he's chosen to play. Coach Al Hunt discovered this before the season was a month old and since has put the powerfully built star in almost every position at one time or another. "You never lose anything by giving the best you have," says Griffin. t'In defeat or victory alike you'll always gain something by giving everything." This type of spirit shown by Valley College's "twin stars" has often helped a team, which otherwise might have lost its desire to keep fighting when the going was getting rougher game after game, to meet reality and realize that the winning team isn't always the victorious one. Facing the football field as life itself has given added stature to the names of Morales and Griffin. On and off the field, these are more than merely football players. These are true competitors.

Silence, slumber, studies-- Story of Valleys Library Libraries are often considered formal and stuffy but not the one at Valley. "Students are always welcomef' said Miss Mary Ellen Ball, one of Valley's librarians. "And we always try to put them at their ease." Even animals seem to sense the friendly atmosphere of Val1ey's Building of Knowledge, and many a stray cat and dog has been returned to anxious owners through Miss Ball's efforts. Another friendly gesture is the expirirnent in library practice of keeping open on Satur- days. This requires librarians and their help- ers in attendance, as well as a custodian to keep heat and lights going. Besides the usual contents of a library, an interesting sight at the present time is the library's display area, where the art depart- ment, under the supervision of Flavio E. Cabral, is showing many interesting and unusual exhibits, such as paintings, sculp- tures, photographs and other artistic forms which draw a great deal of comment. Favorable opinions have also been ex- pressed about the excellent space-saving device put into use at Valley-the micro- filming machine, This machine replaces the need for stacks of periodicals, since a six months' supply of magazines can be copied on a three inch spool of film. By eliminating back issues, more space can be allowed for more and more current periodicals and for the study area in which to read them, Reading for pleasure as well as for study is another advantage the library offers. Books are chosen partly by Valley's instructors with their teaching needs in view and partly by the librarians after studying summarized reviews with the students' possible needs in mind. Besides these purchases, which are taken care of by a budget, Valley's library receives a great many donations from single copies to complete collections. "Once we even got some amusing book covers and put them around other books, making it a special display. Some of the covers read, Forgery Self Taught, 100 Things To Do with Human Skin, How To Form a Posse, Lynching in One Easy Lesson and similar satirical titles which certainly at- tracted plenty of attention," Miss Ball re- called. ' Then to further acquaint students with Valley's Library, orientation courses on the library were incorporated into the school curriculum. These courses, through slides and lectures, explain the facilities and uses of the libarary and the help the librarians are always ready to offer. lt is considered one of the most informative courses of its kind con- ducted in the school system and has proven very effective in its manner of presentation. Expected in the Phase IV construction at The heart of a college is its library Valley is a 60-foot addition to the reading and stack room to accommodate the increas- ing enrollment. Also to be initiated into this unit will be four carrels and eight type- writers for student use. The carrels, which are individual studying niches' among the book stacks, have proven very efficient else- where. Overseeing the building of this expected new addition will take almost as much thought and effort as Mrs, June Biermann, head librarian, spent on the supervision of the present library. The "old prof, as she calls herself, will be able to supervise the erection of the new addition as she did that of the present build- 11'1g. Schools that look in this direction for leadership can be sure that new and better practices will continue to be Valley's goal.

For here is a girl, now a young American woman, whose personal background, if put on paper, would make any aspiring playwright proud. On the first day of April, 1943, Jacqueline Smith was born. But unlike other children, Jacqueline wasnit born in the comfort of a hospital, with the protecting eyes of the doctor looking on. Instead, a German prison camp in Frank- furt, Germany, was the site which in- troduced Jacqueline to her first few months of life. Shortly thereafter she was transfer- red to a displaced person's camp outside of Munich. Her mother, a Belgian nurse, died during childbirth, and her father, an English soldier, was shot as he tried to escape to freedom. Young, nameless Jacqueline remained in the Munich camp for more than two years as World War II came to a halt with the destruction of I-Iitlerls armies and the fall of the Japanese empire. One of hundreds of young orphans, Jac- queline may have been destined to a life of hunger and loneliness if it had not been for RKO war correspondent Harry W. Smith, whose beat was the crumbled Germany. Working with children inside many of these camps, Harry Smith came into contact with thousands of these homeless youngsters every week. But for some reason-many will call it fate while others will credit it to a variety of other sources-Harry Smith found Jacqueline and knew that this had to be his little girl. "Although she spoke no English," Mr. Smith recalls, "she had such a warm and amiable way about her that language wasn't at barrier. After my return to the States, my wife and I discussed the possibilities for adoption. "When I returned to Germany, proceedings were arranged and I was able to bring J ac- queline back with me to New York." The Smiths remained in New York as the adoption was arranged. In 1948 the Smiths legally became Jacqueline's parents. In 1955, the Smith family traveled to New Jersey, four years after their daughter Jac- queline became an American citizen. Later Bermuda became their home, and The many facets of Jacqueline Smith Jacqueline attended British schools. "Bermuda was a beautiful land, but none could ever be more beautiful than my be- loved America," Valley's coed says. "I'll always love my family and country, for they have both loved me." Today, Jacqueline Smith lives in Van Nuys. Her first Los Angeles home was Man- hattan Beach, then Torrance. "People are no different here than any- where else in the United States. They are all so warm and friendly that it makes me proud to know that we are all of the same 'fam- ily,"' Jacqueline says of her neighbors and friends. Jacqueline Smith's beauty and warmth have not gone unnoticed. Not only has she starred in several school productions, but she has also done many television commercials. Talent could well have been her original surname, as Jacqueline proves on the piano keyboard. She has studied piano for eight years and is also a student of dance, "I hope to continue my education and broaden my interests into many fields. It is in this way, I feel, that people become better citizens," says Jacqueline. "Education is the key to success and happi- ness. A person must have this, and, of course, faith to be truly happy in lifef' Jacqueline Smith has both. Aspiring dramatist Jacqueline Smith operates equipment the Theater Arts Building. in The moving st'ory of .locqueline's early life won her high honors in the Valley College speech tournament. Beauty plus beauty can only lend compliment to one another. Valley's deep- thinking cover girl takes pride in associating herself with nafure's creations. X!

What do Valley teachers do when they're not teaching? Do they take pictures? Peek into micro- scopes? Raise flowers? Hunt fossils? Do they paint or perform? Or do they read? Or write? Variety in the writing field is the specialty of Irwin Porges, English instructor, the Mitch Miller of prose. No one answer is the whole answer at Valley College because here teachers might do any one or all of these things. Take writing, for example. Many teachers write. Songs, stories, articles, plays, papers, poetry, prose-even books, And those who write books are often better teachers because of it. HIGHLIGHTS ON SIDELINES continued Lawrence Spirigarn- a Solitary Walk and at piece of prose One such teacher is Irwin Porges. Versatile and creative. Porges is a musician, a com- poser and a published author as well. He is a man who knows the problems of the aspiring writer and as a teacher in Valley's English department, draws on his own experience to answer student questions fully and frankly. He is a man who takes time, time to be friendly, time to listen, time to help. Irwin Porges is also a man who makes time. Turning out articles and books after his "day's work's done," Porges uses eve- nings, weekends and holidays to meet dead- lines established by a New York agent. His second book, "S.O.S.-Great Sea Dis- asterst' will make its spring appearance in a paper back edition, published by Monarch of New York. True sea stories, dramatized and recreated, "S.O.S.-Great Sea Disasters" followed a 1961 publication by Chelton of New York, t'Many Brave Hearts." A hard cover edition, "Many Brave Hearts" is a standard work found in the library. Another teacher with books in the college library is Lawrence Spingarn. Easy going, likeable, Spingarn teaches in the English de- partment and is a published poet besides. When not at the college, he may be found enjoying a solitary walk in the country or canyon. Or, perhaps more to his enjoyment, he may be found in his den, writing. Spingarn first began writing poetry when a boy of 12, and in 1947 "Roccoco Summer" was published by Dutton in New York. In 1951 William Heinemann, Ltd., of London, published "The Lost River: Poems." "Letters from Exile: Poems" was brought out in 1961 by Longman, Green and Co. Ltd.. London and New York. . "I haven't written much poetry for a couple of years now," he says. This doesn't mean he hasn't been writing, for he has. Hav- ing completed a collection of short stories, there's more prose to come.

Miss Lois Bergquist is a Writer too. Her Writing is the result of off-campus activities, activities that make her a better teacher. Easily mistaken for a Valley college stu- dent, Miss Bergquist has been Working for the past three years in the field of bio-chem- istry. "I like to combine teaching and research," said Miss Bergquist. "I find myself in that unique position at last," she said. Miss Bergquist was referring to her re- search appointment at the California College of Medicine. With the title of visiting assist- ant professor, Miss Bergquist does much of her research in the lab at the Los Angeles County General Hospital. Lipo' proteins and cholesterol have held special interest for her. In addition to her teaching at Valley, she has Written several papers in the bio-chemistry field, most of which have revolved around lipids and methodology in the laboratory for analysis oflipids. At California Hospital Miss Bergquist works with Dr. Ronald Searcy and in the course of their research they co-authored "Bio-chemistry of Lipo Proteins in Health and Diseasef' which was published by Charles C. Thomas, Springfield, Ill. Of her participation in this Work, Miss Bergquist said, "It's extremely stimulating academically to participate in research." The interest and enthusiasm Miss Berg- quist feels for her work is reflected in the interest and enthusiasm students feel for the classes in biology and physiology taught by Miss Bergquist. HIGHLIGHTS ON SIDELINES continued Dr. Max Heyman- "Beats the out of 11189 An interest in research and study on the part of Valley teachers has resulted in books on a variety of subjects. "Prudent Soldier, A Biography of Major General E.R.S. Canby," was Written by Dr. Max L. Heyman Jr. Always interested in military history, in the Civil War, and in the problems of reconstruction, Dr. Heyman dis- covered, in the course of the study that led to his doctorate, that no work of importance had been done on Canby. The gathering of material on Maj. Gen. Canby, first general officer of the U. S. Army to be killed by the Indians, covered a six year period. "Why is that? weekly quiz. Dr. Heyman Will be the first to tell that it was hard work, but he will quickly add, dark eyes twinkling behind his glasses, that "it's enjoyable to create a person from the bones out, to build the body, to put flesh on it. It's really a fascinating experience," he says. "I concur with Carlisle to a degree that history is the biography of the World's great men. But, of course, men are shaped by cer- tain circumstancesf' About Canby, he says, "I don't say he was one of the greats, but he made a contribution. And We all have to make our contribution in one Way or another to society, to our coun- try's development? Dr. Heymcm exclclms when no one receives 100 per cent on his Joseph Nordmann has text, will teach Teaching is in itself a contribution to so- ciety, but teachers who write do so because they have something additional to give. Joseph B. Nordmann of Valley's chemistry department has given many written pages. Among his material is the textbook in use in the college. Credited to Nordmann is "Qualitative Testing and Inorganic Chemistry" published by Wiley of New York, a textbook used in about 75 colleges and universities. Among the schools so recognizing Nordmann's work are Columbia, Colgate, the University of Massachusetts, the University of Alaska and the University of Hawaii. Monterey Tech in Monterey, Mexico, uses a translation of Nord- mann's book too. A lab manual, "Experiments in General Chemistry? was written by Nordmann with co-author E. S. Kuljian. While operating "Pacific Chemical Con- sultants," a chemistry lab in Los Angeles, Nordmann and his associates had the dis- tinction of receiving the only contract for water analysis awarded to a commercial laboratory by the State of California Water Resources. Out of this lab grew some of the work put into Nordmann's books. Said Nordmann, "Some of the practical applications can be brought into the classroom. And students like that. This work gives the subject some intrinsic interest. It's down-to-earth. "Writing a text," says Nordmann, "is one of the best subject reviews you could con- ceive of." Nordmann, an artist as well as an author. has done all of the illustrations that accom- pany his text. Like many Valley instructors, quite, seri- ous, scholarly Nordmann crowds many crea- tive interests into his day. Nordmann, like Dr. Heyman, Miss Bergquist, Spingarn and Porges, proves that on Valley's campus there's more to the teacher than meets the eye, for here a teacher's life is a many-sided thing. And some sides of some teachers are only glimpsed between the covers of the books they write. Among the material published by Joseph Nordmann of VaIIey's chemistry department is text "Qualitative Testing and Inorganic Chemistry" used in universities as far as Alaska and Hawaii. Resurgence of Valley's spirit Valley's school spirit gains new momentum under yell king G ary Patterson Is school spirit thousands of voices screaming and cheering the team on to victory, yelling just as hard in defeat? Is school spirit a constant campus atti- tude or feeling of general agreement or friendliness? Or maybe school spirit is a student's individual thing, a personal sense of duty or obligation to make his school better than the next. Scholars and students alike have ana- lyzed these dozen letters and as yet, have not found one substantial answer. But one thing they all can agree upon is this: Of the three above definitions, only the first can be said to be an over-all campus project. True, any of the above could, would and will unify a school, but of them all, only the first can let all voices ring together in perfect unison to achieve this goal. Under the direction of Mrs. Ruby Zuver, the Monarchettes, Valley Col- lege's all girls' drill team, has helped make the school spirit something a little special. "Although We are separate groups, We are still fighting for the same cause. We have tried, and I think to quite a degree of success, to Work together and yet alone, to help unify our school and make our spirit tops." These Words of yell king Gary Patter- son reflect the feeling of the three "spirit" groups of Valley College. The Monarchettes, the song and yell leaders have done an amazing job of promoting interest in campus sports. "l've got to admit that it Was a little difficult to keep going during the foot- ball season when Valley lost all eight of its games. But considering our record, the turnout was quite satisfying and the general attitude was not that of winning -but of tryingj' Patterson added. Head song leader Pam Hoffman puts it this Way: "Valley College is a school Where com- ing out on top, although of course im- portant, isn't the number one thing. The spirit here is to try and try Well. A spirit of hard, but clean, competition is the ruler of the roost, and l'm proud to be a part of this Way of conductf' Active, enthusiastic Gary Patterson, Valley's yell king, is one of the chief reasons for the resurgence of school spirit at Valley. Practicing for those colorful minutes during intermission, the Monorchettes run through their routines on Volley's field. "All together now. Let's give it the old college try!" and Pom Messner leads the crowd in cr rousing cheer. Cooperation is the keynote of a successful school spirit It is easy lo see that work and fun can be combined. Ably assisting yell king Paflerson in keeping school spirif at its peak is Allan Bockal. Enlivening halftime al one of the football games are The high- kicking Monarchelles. Its professor novv Teachers achieve Status The school year 1961-62 proved memorable to teachers as well as stu- dents, for at the beginning of the spring semester, Valley went into the academic ranking program. 4'Instructor" was the official title for teachers in Los Angeles' seven junior colleges preceding February, 1962. At four-year colleges and uni- versities, instructor is a rank within itself-the lowest possible. Therefore, the following reasons were given by the Los Angeles Division of Extension and Higher Education for adopting the ranking system in the LA colleges: "Establishment of academic rank would provide increased stature, greater community prestige and im- provement in personal welfare of the teaching staffs." Dr. Ernest W. Thacker, associate professor of history at Valley, was appointed by Dr. James E. Slosson, faculty president, to initiate steps for acceptance or rejection of the plan at Valley. Faculty president, Dr. James E. ' Slosson: "Ranking enchances academic prestige of iunior college teachers." Dr. Thacker has been a member of the Committee of Academic Rank in the Affiliated College Faculty As- sociation for several years. The com- mittee studies details of ranking in other colleges and universities and helped set up the plan, which was approved by the Los Angeles Board of Education. Under the plan, all evening teach- ers are referred to as "lecturer" For the daytime program, the title "instructor" is given to a teacher when first hired. After three years of teaching and gaining tenure, he is able to apply for the position of as- sistant professor. Seven years' college teaching ex- perience, plus having earned '70 col- lege units, or after having earned a master's or doctor's degree, makes him eligible for the rank of associate professor. Criteria for the rank of professor, although not yet decided, will be de- termined by a committee consisting of Dr. Slosson, Dr. Thacker, and Pro- fessors George Hale, George Herrick, W. E. Jenks and Andrew Mason. The first time teachers will be granted the title of full professor will be Sep- tember, 1963. The history of academic ranking started in 1497 when Oxford Univer- sity first used the title Hprofessorf' In the next 400 years the titles "mas- ter," "doctor" or Hprofessorl' were used synonymously when referring to a college or university teacher. Dr. Ernest W. Thacker spearheaded the movement which resulted in the new titles for iunior college teachers. f "li 'H '11,-.,11r' r' , J, AL P. I it 11 5 -Lge "' . f , w 'ip' Vg self? ' in W NL?

PROFESSORS K continued j Ranking hits Valley The additional title of "assistant professor" was used at Yale Univer- sity in 1870. Sometime between 1900 and 1910, the present Widely accepted university hierarchy of titles was launched. Finally, after only 465 years, the tradition reached Valley in the spring semester of 1961-62. Sixty-nine teachers were made associate profes- sors, and 36 others were given the title "assistant professor." Therefore, Va11ey's teachers now not only have the standards and abil- ities of university teachers but also are honored with the same titles. 5? was? .. ie W. E.

ACTION fcontinuedj Exercises in form With many different sports claiming "world's fastest" or "World's most excitingn titles, gymnas- tics has taken over as the World's most beautiful sports almost without argument. On the Valley College campus, gymnastics can also claim the most improved trophy for 1962. Ray Follosco's gymnasts became the team to beat in the Metro Conference, this coming just one year after they recorded a disappointing 2-7 overall mark, and finished 14th in the state. In an early season prediction, Follosco rated Harbor as the team with the best chance of up- setting Monarch title hopes, but seasonal results showed only Pasadena City College, probably one of the best teams in the country, could top the Lions in dual competition. The squad's strength, in comparison with last year's team, was shown early when Valley com- pletely out-classed Santa Monica, a team which finished second in the conference the previous season.

Executive Council sparks school spirit Executive Council meets at 12 every Tuesday and Thursday to plan student activities The bridge between the stu- dent body and the Executive Council was gapped last se- mester when council mem- bers made "spirit" their goal. Headed by ASB President Stan Broder, Executive Coun- cil members set out to achieve this goal through radio, the Valley newspaper and public- ity. With 552,977.95 to work with, they were able to ex- pand on more festive decora- tions, better dance bands for the students, larger bulletin boards on strategic parts of the campus informing stu- dents of weekly activities and frequent paper coverage by the campus newspaper. Upon attending the state conference last fall, Carol Rohrbach, Commissioner of Student Body Activities, re- turned with a variety of ideas. A, s. B. S0665 STUDENT GOVERNMENT fcontinuedj Government works, not just talks One event which Will be in effect in the near future is the Cultural Exchange Program between the neighboring col- leges and Valley. This ex- change will be mainly in the art field, An exhibition of paintings from another col- lege, an exchange of Valleyls dance band with a neighbor- ing college, should promote spirit as Well as bring a closer relationship between Valley and her surrounding college friends. A final climax in the re- vival of Valley's spirit was the dynamic suggestion of Broder to change the name of the school to avoid confusion with Valley State. TIONS Carol Rvhrbuch, commissioner of student activities, and Dean Nenci Royer mop out semester's events. ASB President Stan Broder takes students' suggestions seriously W' Then Pierce College tried to be "helpful" in selecting a new name for Valley. "East Pierce" they suggested. In retaliation Valley's Executive Council authorized the staff of the Valley Star to prepare a mock version of Pierce's "Round-Up." The satire was distributed on the Pierce campus and received grace- fully. Such activity only goes to prove that spirit is not a thing of the future.

Four points. Had Valley scored just four more points during the sea- son, they, and not Bakers- field, would have been Metro Conference basketball cham- pions for 1961-62. In a season when the Monarchs had the conference's most potent of- fense f1,147 pointsj, two bas- kets Was all that stood be- tween them and their attempt for the comeback of the year. In the year's most import- ant contest, Bakersfield traveled to the lVIonarch's home court and defeated the Valley squad 63-60, clinching their third consecutive cham- pionship. What goes into a top-flight basketball team? First of all, pure, unadorned talent. Lion coach Ralph Caldwell had re- turning lettermen Terry Pressman, Doug Michaelson and Bill Westoby, along with captain Ollie Carter and transfer letterman Al Shapiro from East Los Angeles. Freshman prospects includ- ed three outstanding perform- ers from the Southernlseague, perennially the toughest of the high school loops. These three, Larry Williams, Stan- ley Swinger and Lester Smith, were to become the backbone of the squad. In ad- dition, Caldwell also greeted A winning team is usually coupled with winning spirit.

It took years of - hard work and patience, both for the college and Whitworth alike. But the rewards were well worth il. Mighty '62 mermen rate at top in VaIIey's 13-year history From bottom to top in four years The four year climb from the bottom of the Metro Conference standings to a position of co-favorite was cul- minated in 1962 as Valley fielded the best swim team in the school's 13-year history. Long Beach and Santa Monica, schools which have had a monopoly on most of the awards and championships available to Southland junior colleges, might still finish 1-2 in the standings, but Lion coach Mike Wiley says his team has "made up a lot of ground." When Wiley took over as swim coach back in 1958, he assumed command of a team that hadn't won in two sea- sons. He managed to move the team up to fourth place in that first season, but fell back to the bottom in the next year. From then on, it was all uphill. Last season, Valley fielded a strong team which lost only to the oceanside powerhouses, Long Beach and Santa Monica, in the conference season. Their exhibition record of 5-1 gave them a fine 8-3 season mark, good enough for a third place finish in both conference and state. Wiley has nine returning lettermen from last year's squad, and has added several promising freshman pros- pects. Jim Bain and Jim McGrath, top team scorers in '61, E lead the returnees. Others are Rod Ruffell, school breast- stroke record holderg Bill Taylor, third high point man, John Benson, breaststrokeg John Bennaton, butterfly, Pete Grey, freestyleg Jack Dunn, freestyleg' and Jack Doman, freestyle. - Top freshman prospects are Ric Dyas, city champ in the 100 meter freestyle and Larry Raffaelli, ex-Van Nuys back- stroker. ' Bob Whitworth, the team's only diver, had a very suc- cessful season, posting a long win streak over some good competition. Daryl Pettus developed into a fine butterfly man. Another freshman, Dave Dixon, performed capably in the longer freestyles. ' Seven records were set in the '61 season and prospects were good for an even greater assault on the record. books in '62. Bain and McGrath hardly waited to get in shape be- fore setting new marks this season. Bain swam the 200 individual medley in 2215.0 in the season's second meet, and two days later McGrath broke Bain's 220 freestyle mark with 2211.1 timing. Other marks expected to go are the 100 freestyle 15201, 200 bacfkstroke 12:l3.05, 200 breaststroke 12:29.25 and 440 freestyle 14:44.41 W f ,. I. - , Orff, 41.- 'R 'J-I .

J' -LN. ru' Valleyls Modern coed budgets time What makes a student at Valley Col- lege typical? ln the case of Shirley Green, Valleyis 1962 typical girl student, it's her energy and enthusiasm, plus plenty of organization. It is typical that Valley's students are active in many Ways. It is typical to study, to Work, to have hobbies, to be busy with many things. Every moment of Shirley Green's day is accounted for. How does she do it? "I budget my time," she says simply. "Planning is the secret to success." Shirley carries a full study load as Well as Working part time. For a time she was a receptionist in an animal hospital. Now she Works in the school library. But there's more to Shirley's activities than that. There's her dancing and her singing. A member of the Homer Garrett Square Dance Troop for five years, she has toured the States and even so far out of the States as Brussels. Recently she has begun working with the High Five, a singing quintet. And for fun she plays her guitar, or, if she has nothing else to do, she works out in the gym- Some of her time is given to service. She works with the college Coronets, is a lieutenant in the Monarchettes and has acted and danced in veteran benefit shows. With all her activities, Shirley finds time for fun, friends and a fiance. And after her graduation she plans to add marriage to her busy schedule. If the pattern laid down in college is an indication, Shirley is on her Way to doing many things and doing them well. Coffee break, study period and social hour are combined into one when Shirley uses the cafeteria. Many reasons for a busy schedule lmpromplu singing is fun for Shirley, who enioys music. A willing audience for Shirley's praclice sessions is her pet dog, Shirley finds library work an enioyable way of earning pin money.

I N TELLECTUAL LURE continued Important people in the news, some controversial, others prominent on the political scene, were the order of the day in an extensive forum series at Valley College this season, In a series of talks sponsored by various organizations on campus, among them the Independent Party, Athenaeum Committee and Quad- wranglers, Valley students were able to listen and participate in many varied subjects of world-Wide inter- est and importance. Probably the most discussed guest was Dr. Martin Luther King, who spoke on the "Future of Integration." The Southern religious influencer has been given the titles of Civil Rights Crusader and Integration Leader, among others. On conclusion of his delivery, the audience left the men's gymnasium with full knowledge of three major points planted in their minds by Dr. King. They knew what extreme op- timism, extreme pessimism and real- ism were and the part they played in the fight for race relations as he advocated them to be. Sponsored by the Independent Party, Attorney General Stanley lVIosk took the floor and defended the new establishment of the Pledge of Allegiance as a daily ritual in all 8 a.m. classes. Mosk spoke out on Val- ley's proposal to make fraternities and sororities legal on campus organ- izations for the two-year college by saying that they are an administra- tive problem. He took a dim view of the hazing involved and felt likewise of the school that doesn't punish such antics when they occur. "Why Free Discussion Is Necessary in a College" was the subject of a talk given by the president of the Los Angeles Board of Education, Dr. Ralph Richardson, the first Quad- wrangler presentation of the semes- ter. Speaking in Valley College's famed "Pershing Square," Dr. Richardson emphasized free speech as the basis for democracy, pointing out both the dangers and advantages of free disi cussion. He supported the right of Valley students to discuss any subject in the quad area, but to "be aware of possible abuses of the privilege." Guest speaker Phil Kerby, editor of Frontier magazine spoke before Valley students in the quad as part ofthe Athenaeum series. A present member ofthe House Committee on Science and Astronautics, James C. Corman spoke during the activity hour lecture series. Corman, a Democrat, moved into Congress with the 1960 Kennedy victory. Dr. Ralph Richardson, part-time politician, pilot, UCLA English and speech professor tor 'I4 years, iunior college graduate, but most importantly, Board of Education president, spoke on the necessity of free discussion in college life. Here he chats with Dean Nena Royer after his talk. .Xi -'Q ff.- v.. .y 'vc-:uw ia-19Y'- ' Question and answer period often more stimulating than speeches INTELLECTUAL LURE continued A change of pace took effect when Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Willard Libby, professor of chemistry at UCLA. addressed a crowded Athe- naeum audience Nov. 21 in the Men's Gym on the subject "Dating the Past." Past." A learned man, distinctive in ap- pearance, Dr. Libby spoke on the subject for which he received his honored prize, his discovery of Car- bon-14 dating, a process used to date pre-historic fossils. Congressman Edgar W. Hiestand "came home" to speak to Valley students this year. Hiestand represents the 2lst Congressional district in the House. His lecture was bent for the broad- minded science student. His hypo- thesis Was that your hair is 10 per cent more radio-active than your grandmothers and that scientists 5,000 years from now will be bother- ed in seeking to determine how old you are. Libbyls home was destroyed when the Bel Air fire erupted early in November. But one item had to be saved. It Was, no less - the Nobel Prize! UCLA's Dr. Willard Libby was one of the year's most widely discussed Athenaeum speakers, Describing his Nobel prize- winning Carbon l4 dating process, Libby showed how scientists can now accurately date fossils, where previous efforts had relied on a great deal of luck. itil Q .

Corman of the 22nd district and the ensuing Councilman Lemoine Blan- chard, chairman of the Public Works Committee in the Los Angeles City Council. The 1960 contest for the seat in Congress was taken over by Corman Who edged Blanchard in a close race. At present, Corman is a member of the House Committee on Science and Astronautics. Blanchard Was the only non-incumbent elected to the Los Angeles City Council in 1959. He was a founding member and president of the Junior Chamber of Commerce at the age of 24. "Why should we talk from Weak- ness instead of strength?" That Was the question posed by Congressman Edgar W. Heistand, Republican from the 21st district, an advocate of a strong national defense. Hiestand ranged his material toward all types of currently invoked disputes. Communism, students and ideas, politics and newspapers were woven into his allotted time. A talkative year, this one at Valley College. Too, these were but a few VIP's to arouse campus interest. They exemplify what the old adage at- tempts to say: "We're never left holding the bag-" when it comes to further enriching college minds in an already enriched Valley College. Dr. Martin Luther King, Crusader for civil rights and leader of many Southern boycotts and "sit-ins," spoke on the future of integration. King, revealed by a Gallup poll as one of the world's most admired religious leaders, drew a large turnout. Councilman Lemoine Blanchard lRightl spoke under the supervision of the Independent Party. President ofthe Junior Chamber of Commerce at 24, Blanchard won his present council position in 1959. l' ,N f 1 "U 65,000 technicians needed first step to meet need John Fawcett, instructor in the new night division technical writing course at Valley College, is by day manager ofthe Technical Information Services division of Marquardt Inc. As part of his duties, Fawcett checks technical manual titles with Marquardt employe. The need was a great one-but the answer Valley College had was just as great. Amer- ican Astro-Systems Wanted them, so did Librascope, Magnavox, Miles Samuelson, Rocketdyne, AiResearch and a host of others. Such was the none too surprising revela- tion of a 14-month study surveying the need for technicians in the Valley area, a need that will be inet to a great extent by the cur- riculum offered in both Valley and Pierce junior colleges. Spearheading the research program was Donald D. Dauwalder, industrial consultant, who was hired by the Los Angeles Board of Education and several industrial concerns. TECHNICIANS NEEDED fcontinuedj Valley college eye focused on important community needs The findings of Dauwalder and his staff, consisting of an advisory committee of lead- ing educators and industrial representatives, as well as local chambers of commerce, was studied with great interest and enthusiasm in the Valleyfs two junior colleges. The survey, concluded in June 1961, showed that over a 10-year period, extending to 1970, that the San Fernando Valleyls needs for technicians will be somewhere around the neighborhood of 65,000. Those fields investigated include drafts- men, mathematicians, mechanical engineers, physical science technicians and qualified workers in electronics and staff and tech- nical classifications. Valley's main interest fell in the field of technical writing, which came under the heading of staff and technical classifications. Sparked by the findings of the Dauwalder research, representatives of education and industry met to discuss the possible creation of new courses designed to meet the coming demand for able men and women in the technical fields. Pierce and Valley colleges split the re- sponsibility down the middle but kept it as a cooperative matter. reate t discover iI1Ce tttllftlf Hllm unnfns Since the meetings, Pierce College has established an electro-mechanical technology program and, as part of its journalism pro- gram, Valley has set up a technical writing course. When the program was first announced as being open for Valley College evening division students, it was met immediately with such great popularity that two weeks before registration ended the class was filled with an enrollment of 45 students. Valley is now offering another required subject, Journalism l, to the evening pro- gram to help those interested in entering the technical field, another popular decision. Said Dauwalder: " . . . Many excellent industrial and vocational courses and curri- culums have been developed by the schools, but all levels of education must continue to explore new curriculums and relate them to community needs." This, then, not only applies to the tech- nical writing field and the interest Valley College has displayed, but even more so to the constant awareness that Los Angeles Valley College has displayed in its neighbor- ing communities.

Picking out a name at random from Valley's roster brings forth an energetic l9 year old business ad- ministration major, Steven Frank. Formerly a cheerleader at Van Nuys High, Frank is an eager booster of Valley sports and follows the school athletic programs but says, regretfully, "I haven't the time I'd like for active sport participa- tion." This is something of an understatement. For in addition to his school schedule, he is employed at a 16-hour-a-week job in a gasoline filling station. Studying occupies quite a few of his remaining free hours, but he still finds time for that "special girl friend" and for bowling and tennis. To Frank, who was defeated by less than 25 votes for the position of freshman president "on a strictly non-partisan platform," politics with a capital P is his goal. His current ambitions include a bachelor's degree from UCLA, the necessary post-graduate course in law school, and then the plunge into the vortex of political life. With the enthusiasm and thoroughness he displays in present activities, Steven Frank stands a good chance of making himself into a solid, substantial citizen.

Partners: clubs and help Club day attracts crowd Clubs are for fun and for friend- ship. Students at Los Angeles Val- ley College will attest to that. But there's more to Valley's clubs than fun and frolic. There's the helpful spirit seen in service to student, school and community. One example of good times coupled with helpfulness is pro- vided by the German Club. Found- ed in 1953, the "merry circle," otherwise known as Die Froliche Runde, or the German Club, began with the policy that all students enrolled in German classes or who were interested in German culture were eligible for membership. "Our primary purpose is to give students an insight into German culture, to create a correlation be- tween clubs and to further school spiritji said Dr. Vera Soper, co- sponsor with Steven Curtis. Inter-club activities, basketball games, music programs and poster parties are part of the German Club's activities. There are Stamm- tischs Cluncheonsj at the Old Heidelberg Inn, there are German folk dances, films, skiing trips and light operas.

One of the most active clubs on campus, the German Club keeps many irons in the fire. Not the least of these is its scholarship program designed to help deserv- ing students. Twenty-five dollars is given by the club to second se- mester German students, and a S75 award is presented to a student Who intends furthering his educa- tion in German at a four-year in- stitution. Les Savants, another outstand- ing Valley club, has a unique pro- gram of service to the student. The service is that of tutoring.

Help may be re- quested by any student in such fields as foreign languages, Eng- lish, mathematics, science, elec- tronics, social science, home eco- nomics, police science, secretarial science and theater arts. The tutoring fee of 500 an hour, which the student pays to the busi- ness office, goes into a fund that provides scholarships for Valley students. Helping in still another Way are the Coronets, official college host- esses. Taking tickets and ushering at such events as assemblies and the Athenaeum programs, the Coronets also serve at luncheons and banquets. An honorary service organiza- tion made up of Valley Women stu- dents, Coronets exhibit a spirit of assistance that goes beyond the boundaries of the campus, for they provide community service, too. Each semester Coronets gets a service project under Way, and plans are made to provide off- campus entertainment for inmates .1 4 ' fl w J vi Y gap, - - -'.

"Membership in the Coronets formation booths for new students on the first day of each semester. implies a willingness to serve, and only those who have a record of previous service in this or another school are invited to join," said Judy Barron, president. Equally energetic in display of service and school spirit are the Knights, male counterpart of the Coronets. The Knights' motto, "Honor Through Service," indicates the purpose of the club, whose mem- bers are selected from Valley Col- lege men with a record of leader- ship and service to the school. Official hosts at all school func- tions, the purpose of the Knights is not social, but strictly that of a service group. The Knights are the men who perform such necessary jobs as roping off designated areas for the band and faculty at athletic events.

"Membership in either group is automatically bestowed upon all holders of student body cards," said Lynn Kurz, former AWS president. Activities that will cultivate friendliness and the stimulation of interest in campus activities is the work of these organizations. "This year," said Jim Meinel, AMS president, "both organiza- tions have been trying to stimulate an interest in the dances held on campus."

Some of the ac- tivities AWS sponsors are fashion shows and charm clinics. Both presidents are open to sug- gestions for improved campus ac- tivities. Said Meinel, "The only difference between me and the suggestion box is that you can't put paper in me." Ideas for improving campus operations are exchanged with other junior college AWS and AMS representatives at regular conventions held for that purpose. As a result of discussions With representatives from other schools, suggestions are brought back to Valley and instituted to benefit the student body directly as a Whole as Well as either group in- dividually. To help any foreign student who may neeed assistance on campus is the aim of the International Club. A "big brother-big sister" program acquaints the new student with the college and the Way of the American student. The Festival of N ations, with its display of flags from 50 countries, is one of the most Widely known activities of the International Club. At this event foods made by for- eign students are sold, the money Q 2 CLUBS K continued j being used to assist out-of-country students who may need homework help because of a language problem or who need help in finding a place to live. The money is used also to provide sightseeing trips to show Southern California to the students from other lands. The Kozo Ura award is present- ed regularly by the International Club to the student who shows the most on-campus accomplish- ment. This award is set up to help a student defray college expenses. The Behavioral Science Club is another group offering service. De- voted to anthropology, psychology, philosophy and sociology, the club conducts a program of speakers, panels and round-table discussions as well as field trips for members. There are social events, too, and the opportunity for members to do volunteer work in local mental hospitals and child guidance cen- ters carries the influence of the club out into the community. "Many students are active in the volunteer programs," said James Preston, club president. "Most of our work is done at the Veterans' Hospital where students do many different things. Some may work with statistics and still others may work directly with the patients." l NOW ,S ffyflmrf sf35Z2"Mf 7 104141 5 ,f-"rr-. pznies de-bo . -'0Oqm Bvgfis Jackie Nable, Joan Elmlinger, Tonya Gable, Dr. Aura-Lee Ageton, lclub sponsorl lfront rowl and David Kurtz, Rosalie Hughes, Charles Kinzek lsponsorl Don Ashbrook plan tutoring to build Les Savants-Tau Alpha Epsilon scholarship fund.

This schol- arship is awarded students intend- ing to pursue upper division work in one of the behavioral sciences. To help aspiring writers, the Writers Club opens its member- ship to all students interested in writing for publication, whether fiction or non-fiction. Material may be submitted to the club for evaluation and group criticism. For members there is also the opportunity to hear from successful writers, editors and critics who lecture at the monthly meetings. The Writers Club provides help in the form of inspiration and en- couragement for aspiring writers. Said Mrs. Dorothy Portugal, club member, "Coming into contact with people who do write makes the meetings stimulating and en- joyablef' Further help is given in the form of scholarships. Three S75 awards are made at the end of each school year to the authors of the three best short stories submitted. The recipients of the awards are free to use the money for addi- tional study wherever they choose. Another group, the Valley As- sociated Business Students, known as VABS, serves the student of business with an insight into busi- ness trends, opportunities and needs. The business world that the student will face upon graduation is outlined and profiled for the stu- dent through lectures. The German Club gives students an insight into German culture One of the most notable services of this group is that of providing speakers for the Occupation EX- ploration series, a service to the entire student body. "We deal in the area of leader- ship as far as business is con- cerned," said Mark Mathews, as- sistant professor and one of the VABS advisers. Opportunities for leadership are afforded VABS club members, and field trips are part of the program set up to acquaint VABS with the careers toward which they are working. There are many clubs on Val- ley's campus from which a student may choose. Each club is active in a specific area of interest. And in each group the student is given the opportunity to help and to be helped. Looking for second title After coach Mark Mat- thews' Monarch tennis team posted a 17-1-1 record to fin- ish third in the state in 1961, possibilities for an encore seemed too much to be hoped for. Santa Monica, perenni- ally solid contenders for Metro Conference honors, couldn't let the Valley squad top them two years in a row. Early season results showed that Matthew's men have the potential to repeat as cham- pions of the conference, even though they lost spectacular Chuck Rombeau, state singles champion. Four returning lettermen, three fine fresh- men and the return of Al- phonse Suastegui from the ranks of the ineligible gave Valley fans high hopes for the '62 net season. 4 ,af rf. . , gzip 1, V ' YH ,. ,,.

Valley got off to a fast start in their seasonts play, defeat- ing Pierce, Glendale twice and upsetting the powerful USC Frosh. The only Mon- arch loss was to the nation's number one team, UCLA's Frosh. The Valley-Santa Monica meeting was slated to be a grudge affair, since the Cor- sairs had administered Val- ley's only 1961 loss, while the Monarchs had snapped a 67 straight SMCC winning streak in an earlier encounter. The 1962 Corsairs figured to be just as strong as last year, but repeating champion- ships is never an easy task, even for favorites. ' 1122? T, ..,..:.,f......... .xiii ' - ' '21- ..
