VALLEY'S NEW LIFE continued
From the opening of school, faith-
ful fans cheered a losing football
team through the long season under
the leadership of yell king Gary Pat-
terson. 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
In this school year 1961-62, the col-
lege campus has begun to take on an
air of permanence. The many arcades

a mall at the heart of the campus.

provided modern permanent facil-
ities to replace the bungalows of the

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

though he attended two other col-

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
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.

official dedication preceding the first
basketball game. They felt that the
guest speaker at the original dedica-

when he was president at the Uni-
versity of Chicago.

A packed house, featuring the
Four Preps, boosts the morale for
the approaching 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
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
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
. .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

Curiosity about this location so close to

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.
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
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

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
The other glowing star from Valley College's 1961 grid-
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
"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.

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-
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.

book stacks, have proven very efficient else-
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-
Schools that look in this direction for

practices will continue to be Valley's goal.

If Theater Arts major and the Crown
cover-girl Jacqueline Smith continues in the
field of acting, it is highly doubtful that she
will ever come in contact with a true story
as moving and inspiring as her own. 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
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
"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
"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 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
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.

ness. A person must have this, and, of course,

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

An interest in research and study on the

Max L. Heyman Jr. Always interested in
military history, in the Civil War, and in the

Is school spirit thousands of voices

Is school spirit a constant campus atti-
tude or feeling of general agreement or
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

True, any of the above could, would

"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.

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

Head song leader Pam Hoffman puts
it this Way:
"Valley College is a school Where com-
ing out on top, although of course im-

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:

provement in personal welfare of the

The additional title of "assistant

sity in 1870. Sometime between 1900
and 1910, the present Widely accepted
university hierarchy of titles was
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.

"Ranking is of definite value to
college teachers in applying for

Ray Follosco's gymnasts became the team to

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.

year's team, was shown early when Valley com-

Displaying the form which helped lead Valley
College's l962 swimming team to some of its
greatest honors, Bob Whitworth makes the
difficult dives look the easiest. It took years of -
hard work and patience, both for the college and
Whitworth alike. But the rewards were well
mermen rate at
top in VaIIey's
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,
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,
Top freshman prospects are Ric Dyas, city champ in the
100 meter freestyle and Larry Raffaelli, ex-Van Nuys back-
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

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
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
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.

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-
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
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.
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."
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

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
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
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.

draw good crowds
Distinguished guests continued to
invade Valley's "asphalt jungle" With
the arrival of Congressman James C.
Corman of the 22nd district and the
ensuing Councilman Lemoine Blan-
chard, chairman of the Public Works
Committee in the Los Angeles City
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.
Blanchard lRightl spoke
under the supervision of
the Independent Party.
President ofthe Junior
Chamber of Commerce at
24, Blanchard won his
present council position
65,000 technicians needed

John Fawcett, instructor in the new night

College, is by day manager ofthe

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
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-
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
Pierce and Valley colleges split the re-
sponsibility down the middle but kept it as
a cooperative matter.

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
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
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

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

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

Partners: clubs and help
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. There is the partici-
pation in the Homecoming pre-
parations, and at football games

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,

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

ters carries the influence of the club
out into the community.
"Many students are active in the
volunteer programs," said James

different things. Some may work
