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.

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 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'

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.
