ERQQXYJQEQESANF xv Ng KVGLUME811954J U N 5 BARBARA DAVIES Fall Editor We have come to the end of another school year, and the Red and White has recorded in its pages one more chapter in the history of Lowell High School-a chapter which we have entitled "Spirit of '54." This edition of the book is dedicated to the Fall and Spring graduating classes who had the fine spirit typical of Lowell. The mem- bers of these classes made a success of every- thing they attempted. They will long be re- membered by all who knew them. The staff of the Red and Wbite joins me in wishing them "good luck" in the years to come. BARBARA DAviEs DON KRAUSS Spring Editor This year's Red and White is dedicated to the graduating classes of 1954, the "High 'n' Mighty Seniors." The Senior Prom, the picnic, the Block L rally, graduation-all passed so quickly. The graduates' high school days are over, but the memories of their four years at Lowell linger on. There were rallies with the "E-Rah," the Axe, the Hymn, and the Lowell spirit. There were the championship teams, and those that didn't fare so well. There were dances at Lowell and the more formal affairs at clubs and hotels. After the dances down to Ott's or New Joe'sg or any of the many popular San Francisco night spots. Even the studies played their part in filling their four great years at Lowell. We of the Red and While staff hope that this yearbook will be a treasured remembrance of their last year at Lowell.

PETERSON Demi of Bnyr PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE America is looking, at all times, for citizens with high ideals and intelligent ideas to carry forward the many phases of activity that constitute the American way of life. For nearly a century Lowell High School has sought to con- tribute to the development of just such citizens through its scholastic program and its student activities. Many of Lowell's graduates have contributed, through the years, to the life of the community in ways that have made their Alma Mater justly proud. Now we look to you, graduates of the class of June 1954, to go forth and measure up to the standards and traditions that Lowell has always stood for. We hope that your experiences at Lowell, your relations with your teachers in your classes, and your cooperation with your fellow students in the many activities, have been rich and profitable for you. Best wishes for your success in the years ahead! EDITH E. PENCE Principal MISS G. LORIGAN Dean of Girls MR, H, KARPENSTEIN Head Cn11n,u'lf1r Lowell High School Faculty MR.

B. OFFICERS The student body officers, lead by Sanford Haber, made a successful Fall 1953 term at Lowell. Vice President Pat Zeller, who was Sp. '53 editor of the Reel and While, aided Sanford in the many senior activities. Treasurer Gil Sciacqua, who was Spring head yell leader, did his best to keep the financial situation in hand along with some aid from Secretary Helen Stone. There seemed to be a continual buzz of activity on the first fioor all day long, but there was only one solution to what it might beg certainly, Bruce Shafer, editor of the Lowell, trying to dig up some news for the paper and Barbara Davies, editor of the Rell and While, trying to find a set up for the outcoming yearbook. Last, but not least, are Glenn Bell, head yell leader, and jackie Secail, assistant. Both helped to uphold the fine Lowell spirit. FALL ACTIVITIES COINIMITTEE Bnlzfwi faux' Sanford Haber.

The decorations depicted the themes and the bands played music to fit all tastes. The nrst dance of the term was a student body dance held on September 25. The theme, "September in the Rain," was perfectly suited to the atmosphere. The girls' and boys' Block L dance committees got together and produced a dance on October 10, with the theme of "Lads and Lassiesf' A French theme, "Clair de Lune," on October 23, was the motif. The music was furnished by Charlie Stern and his orchestra. "Captured" was the twirp dance theme which was given on November 15. The junior Prom, held on December 11, had a mo- tif in keeping with the holiday spirit, for "December Melodyl' was the theme. Christmas trees gayly deco- rated the Century Club and the music of Walt Tol- leson kept the couples starry-eyed. The last dance of the term and the most significant to the high seniors was "The Loveliest Night of the Yearn or the Senior Ball. The date was January 15, the place was the Italian Room of the St. Francis Hotel and the music was that of Ray Hackett and his orchestra. PAGE ELEVEN f .9 ' x ,. A 51?

Football Team I-las Rough Season AAA PAGEANT-LOWELL, 0-BALBOA, 6 Coach Bill Feiling fielded a green but highly spirited club for the third Annual Prep Football Pageant. The Indians drew the number of a strong Balboa team and dropped a hard-fought 6-0 game. Even though the Pageant games last only one quar- ter, they .afford the various coaches an opportunity to judge the talents of the boys on their team. Coach Feiling, after the Pageant, made several changes that placed players in positions better suited to them. Soph- omore Keough showed well against the Buccaneers. LOWELL O--GALILEO 8 Galileo beat the Big Red in the first game of the season thanks to a Lion defense that stiffened at cru- cial times. Just when it appeared that the Cards were on their way, a pass would be intercepted or the pi gskin would squirt from the arms of the ball carrier. PAGE FORTY-FOUR The Lions scored on a long pass and when Q.B. Hus- band was dropped in the end zone trying to pass. Thanks to the stinginess of Ballard and Green on defense, Galileo had to resort to a frantic passing at- tack to score. LOWELL 6-POLYTECHNIC 25 The Cards were matched against the champs, Poly, in the next game and it was evident early in the game that the Parrots were a superior eleven. This, how- ever, didnlt stop the Indians from fighting hard. The fine all-around play of Kuhn, Wilkes, and Ad- dison kept the score from mounting any higher. The Indians scored in the final seconds on a pass from Kreuter to Captain Jerry Green. The Big Red narrowly missed scoring in the second quarter when Keough caught an apparent T.D. pass out of bounds. LOWELL 14-SAINT IGNATIUS 14 Playing their best game of the season, the Indians held playoff contender S.I. to a tie. Heads up defensive play gave the Indians both touchdowns. Don Wilkes recovered a bad pass from center in the S.I. end zone for the first score. The next break came as an S.I. back droped a pitch-out and a 128-pound streak of greased lightning by the name of Larry Husband scooped it up and romped 50 yards for a six-pointer. Bill Pope turned in some great end play in this game. LOWELL 6-BALBOA 41 Having hopes for a good season from the fine show- ing against S.I., the Indians bit off considerably more than they could chew in the form of Bal's playoff- bound Buccaneers. The Indians scored on a brilliant 38-yard pass from Lom to "Watt" Husband. Even though completely outclassed, the team never quit. Sonny Haber, tackle Calloway, and Lom, a soph Q.B. up from the j.V.'s played well, but you can't stop an avalanche with a picket fence. LOWELL 7fMISSION 30 Clawed, pawed, and mauled by the Mission Bear, the Cards came out of their fifth league encounter still winless. Mission, after a poor start in league play, sud- denly rose up to bat down an Indian team that was eager for its first win. The Indian defense couldn't stop a brilliant Mis- sion ground game. Resorting to desperation passes, the Cards gambled and lost with the Bears taking advan- tage of the breaks and cashing them in for scores. A pass from Lom to Keough brought Lowell's lone score. LOWELL 7-SACRED HEART 7 Dominating the first half, but letting down a great deal in the last half, Lowell was tied by last place Sa- cred Heart. It was quite ironic, for this game was sup- posed to be the lone win this season for either side. Early in the game Lowell marched 80 yards climaxed by a 15-yard pass from Kreuter to Keough for a T.D.! The team threatened several other times but couldn't push it over. Wilkes and Yamabe contributed some excellent play throughout the game. LOWELL 0--LINCOLN 20 In a game that was marked by miscues and a brief flurry of aroused tempers, the Cards dropped the tilt to a good Lincoln club. The loss of Don Wilkes early in the game hurt the team considerably. The Mustangs roared around what would have been his position for two of their tallies. The passing of Lom and Kreuter to Keough and Green threatened constantly, but couldnft click at eru- cial times. The Indians' Yamabe and Daniel played Well. LOWELL 0-WASHINGTON 13 Probably the best thing about the Washington game in the minds of most Lowell rooters, was that it was the last of the season. This was a season when everything happened, most- ly bad, to Lowell. The final game with Washington is a fine example of what happened all season long. The Big Red pushed the Eagles all over the Held, but two intercepted passes gave Washington their points. Pete Flood and Roger Ryman played the best game of their careers, but as in other cases it wasn't enough. FOOTBALL I. Haber carries the ball for yardage as Husband puts on a key block. 2. Yasukuclii.

They linished the season in a tie for second place with a 5-3 record. Led by pass-snagging end Hines and smashing full- back Hanson, the Papooses rolled over Galileo, 6-Og S.I., 7-6, S.H., 25-Og Lincoln, 26-7, and Washington, 13-12. Their losses were to Poly, Balboa, and Mission. Some of the other outstanding boys in the club were Clark, Dare, Morrison, Vannucci, Peterson, Moore, Roberts and Simmons. Hines led the scoring with 51 points-with the rest of the scoring divided between Hanssen, Vannucci, Clark, Morrison, Sim- mons, and Dare, These guys, although given little attention, work just as hard as their "big brothers" on the varsity. They came through as a great gang who will contribute much to next year's varsity.

Why? Who are they? They are the little guys who nobody cared about because they are too young to play JV or varsity. They are the members of the Frosh-Soph football team, and they did something that no Lowell football team had done in four years- THEY BEAT POLY! Not only did they break the drought, they did it so as not to leave doubts in any- one's mind, the lil' Injuns won 15-0. It must be admitted that in the early part of the sea- son the "Goofs" did not fare so well. They lost games to Balboa, Saint Ignatius, and Lincoln. The little Reds were led in the line by center Nynan and by end Kiil. In the backheld it was Ward, Gama, and DeAngelo. These are the guys who will someday be the Lowell varsity. With some support they may beat Poly again. LOWELL'S COACHES Football: Bill "Curly" Feiling, head coach of foot- ball and swimming, graduated from Poly and Stan- ford. He played end at Stanford, and began coaching at Willows. Ray Milton attended San Francisco and Stanford after graduating from Lowell. He played fullback in college, and is head coach of the j.V.'s and line coach for the varsity. Earl Minkwitz, coach of the Frosh-Soph, is also a Stanford grad. Basketball: Ben Neff coaches the varsity basketball team. He has been coaching for 28 years, 25 of them at Lowell, and is rated one of the top coaches in North- ern California. Mr. Feiling coaches the 130's, while Mr. Anino coaches the 11O's and 120's. Track and Cross Country: Don Travers, a graduate of the University of California, coaches both these teams. Baseball and Soccer: Walt Drysdale coaches both the baseball and soccer teams. Tennis and Golf: Mr. Livingstone, a Cal grad, coaches tennis and golf. PAGE FORTY-SEVEN CROSS COUNTRY Front raw: B.

I-iarriers Dual Meet Champs HARRIERSAAAA CHAMPS Paced by Dick Bullock, Pete Reider, and Bill Davis, the cross country team won the AAA Dual Meet Cham- pionship. The team, however, lost out in the All-City Meet by a narrow margin to Poly's record-breaking Parrots. Bullock, the lanky Tennessean, broke a school rec- ord practically every time he ran, but it was his bad fortune to run up against the finest cross country man ever to perform in this area, Poly's Mel Dowdell. This year's team ended the season with one of the best records the harriers have brought home in many a year. The Red and White runners were all victorious in regular season dual meets, losing only to Hayward, Northern California's finest. This team deserves credit as not only an exception- ally good one, but as a true representative of Lowell sportsmanship and participation in athletics.

Soccer Teczm Winless SOCCER Although meeting with very little success, the soccer team did a great deal better than was expected with the inexperienced material available. The booters broke the scoring drought that began last year, when they didn't make a single goal. They scored on all except three of their opponents, keeping most of the games in doubt until the final minutes. Led by Sandy Chin, Jose Panizo, Bob Elleson, Tom Stearns, and goalie Lloyd Minney, the Injun kickers had so many teams in hot water at such regular inter- vals that it seemed impossible that the Red wouldn't win a single game, but alas and alack, this was their unfortunate position when the season ended. In the SI. game, for instance, goals were being missed by distances that could be measured in "hairs," not inches. S.I. just barely squeeked in with a 2-1 win. This, more or less, is a perfect example of the whole season, to come so close but always being just far enough away to lose. Some outstanding foreign players on the team were the Zelaya brothers, who played inside left and inside right, and Wal'ter Lenkoff, who was brilliant at right wing. Tom Stern was elected captain and played cen- ter forward.

This, however, does not take away one iota of the hustle and flght that the Red and Wlmite put out all season. Under the guidance of Coach Anino the 10,5 beat Galileo, Poly, and Mission. They dropped the rest, but not before they had scared the daylights out of a number of people. The first string was made up of Jim Caranica, Bucky Reed, Paul Matzger, Bob Murase, and Magnus Nagase. Lightweight Basketball Teams l2O's Take Third The 20's led by Nick Caranica and Yosh Mumehara, with Bob Randall, Ralph Daniels, and Jeff Thomson rounding out the first string, Hnished well in a tough league. The lil' Injuns lost only to Poly, S.H., and S.l.'s champs. Victories were over Washington, Lincoln, Mission, Balboa, and Galileo. The little cagers went through a hair-raising schedule, every game in doubt until the final minutes. Honors went to Nick Caranica, who was selected on the All-City team. He couldn't have won these honors, however, without line team play and the good coach- 120 POUND BASKETBALL ron! raw: Y, Mumehara, M. Bauer. N. Urano, R, Daniels, J. - - , , - - l Thomson, N.

PAGE FIFTY L. , 130 POUND BASKETBALL The Lowell 130 lb. basketball team had a very poor seasonal record. But in their case the record doesn't tell the whole story. Three of their losses were in games that could have gone either way. Poly's playoff bound Parrots beat the Indians, 66- 45, despite Ferroggiaro's fine 17 point performance. They were on the short end of their game with Balboa, 38-28. In the most exciting game of the year the 30's beat Galileo in an overtime struggle, 45-40. Paced by Libert's 21 points, which included a 15 foot jump shot that tied the game at 39-39 with just seconds to go, the team made a tremendous comeback to Win their first game of the season. Ferroggiaro hit 14 as St. Ignatius took the measure of the Cards 33-30. Sacred Heart bowed to the 3O's, 38-33 in the Indians' best team effort. Mission beat the Cards 43-33. Libert hit 15 as Lincoln eked out the Indians 36-34. Washington's championship bound 130's were scared, but recovered in time to beat the Indians 32-28 in a real thriller. The 130's 2-6 record was not up to par with the teams of the last two years, but they had Libert and Ferroggiaro, who were two of the highest scorers in the league. Rounding out the first string were Tsuyuki, Taylor, and Tornberg. They were ably coached by Mr. Feiling. 130 BASKETBALL Left lo right: M Axt, T. XVatanabe, C. Eklof, D. Tornberg Left to riglyl: P.

PAGE FIFTY-TVIO Varsity Makes Playoffsg Bows to Poly LOWELL 38-POLY 49 Inexperience was the difference in this game in which the Parrots beat the Indian five, 49-38. Actually the game was much closer than the 11-point margin would indicate. With four minutes remaining, the In- dians were 4 points behind, and Poly went into a stall. Lowell in their desperation to get the ball had too many fouls called against them. The Redmen led Poly at the half, 21-20. Al Mock garnered 10 points for the Indians. He was followed in scoring by Lou Pelhni and Tom Meschery with 8 points each. LOWELL 544BALBOA 50 Lowell started rolling in their second game by scor- ing a convincing victory over Balboa, 54-30. The Buc- caneers were never in the contest after the first quar- ter. The game was more like a football tilt with 50 fouls being called. "Goose" Grider began to hit his sensational scoring pace by dunking in I7 points. Mock played a good floor game and made 14 points. Mel Prescott, a high fresh- man, showed great promise by hitting 6 points in the fourth quarter. LOWE.LL 5 5wGALILEO 41 Grider, Lowell's All-City basketballer, potted 24 points to lead his mates to an impressive 55-41 win over Galileo. Grider hit 11 of 18 held goal attempts. I-Ie made practically every kind of shot in the book. Also he did a good job on the rebounds, collecting 20. Al Mock played his usual steady game, pushing in 14 points. Lou Pelfini made the play of the game when he lofted a high pass from about half court intended for Grider. But he overthrew his target and to the amazement of everyone, the ball swished through the net. VARSITY BASKETBALL Fran! rouu' D. Nyhan, XV. Keough, A Tendell. M. Mattson. 2nd roux' 'I Fonda, I..

The Wildcats rat- tled off an early 17-5 lead in the opening quarter be- fore the Indians could get their attack rolling. For the next three quarters Lowell had slightly the better of it but they couldn't overcome the Wildcats' big lead. Grider was the big gun as far as scoring goes. For the second straight game he netted 24 points, which gave him the AAA scoring leadership.

Lou was a great team player who always put the team first. Mel Prescott had another hot game, hitting 4 out of 4 shots in the fourth quarter. LOWELL 50-MISSION 45 The Redmen sank a magnificent 61? of their shots to beat Mission, 50-45. Thus Coach Neff gained an- other victory in his personal feud with Lloyd Leith. Lowell had to play almost perfect basketball to beat an experienced Mission team. The Indians held the lead all the way and maintained a 5-point advantage after each quarter. Tom Meschery hit 6 of 7 shots to register 14 points. Grider, although guarded by two Bears, garnered 14 points too. Balling and Mock sank 10 each. LOWELL 59-LINCOLN 47 Lowell clinched a playoff berth by knocking off a tough Lincoln five, 59-47. This was the Indians' third consecutive victory. The Mustangs gave Lowell a hard fight for three quarters, then a layup by Al Mock and PAGE FIFTY-FOUR two hook shots by "Goose" Grider gave Lowell a 10- point advantage. Grider amassed his highest point total of the sea- son by posting 27 points. This put him just 9 points short of Ken Flower's scoring record. It also clinched the city scoring championship. Aubrey Tendell, start- ing his first game, played a tremendous floor game. XWASHINGTON 32-LOWELL 30 Clarence Grider broke the AAA scoring record in a thrill-packed game which was decided in a sudden death overtime. The Eagles emerged victorious, 32-30, when Randy Garnett sank the winning bucket. A few seconds before, Grider missed two free throws which would have given the game to Lowell. Grider had scored 18 points already to post a season's total of 154. Washington used strategy in stalling the last five min- utes although behind by two points. Then with a few seconds left to play Bob Arteberry made a 20-footer which tied the score. In the first overtime Washington employed the same strategy by stalling for three more minutes but this time they missed a shot as the over- time ended. PLAYOFF GAME Lowell ended their basketball season on a very sad note by losing to Poly, 55-45. It seemed that Poly could do no wrong in the first half after which they led, 32- 10. To add to their miseries, Grider fouled out with seven minutes remaining in the game after he had scored 20 points. The Indians actually did pull up to within five points of the Parrots with five minutes re- maining, thanks to yeoman work by Mel Prescott and Al Mock. But then Poly's experience and those rugged Jones boys QReggie and Mauricej went to work and iced the game for Poly. Reggie scored 15 points while Maurice was connecting for 13. Clarence Grider topped the All-City team in all the papers, while Al Mock made the consensus second team.

Despite the fact that all of last year's squad returned except one man, and a number of new prospects showed good potential, the same club which last season won two games was only successful in registering a single league victory in 1954, against Galileo, 3-2. However, it must be said in favor of the team that it suffered an unusual number of injuries. Every member of the squad missed at least one game during the long schedule, and therefore the ball club was unable to get rolling as a playing unit, something which is essential for success in baseball, The Indians began the year with a sound hurling corps, but the loss of Roger Bohne to the track team and subsequent injuries to both Pete Janssen and Clarence Grider reduced its effectiveness to a minimum. This year's team was another in a series of weak hitting ball clubs at Lowell, and although the batting potential was there, it simply didn't assert itself enough to win any games. Outstanding players this season were Lloyd Minney, jerry Shobar, Marsh Kreuter, Ken Archibald and jerry Diamond. 2' BASEBALL - From row: P. Janssen, K. Archibald, G. Russo, A. Mitchell, R, Bohne, B.

Team Has Good Season 111 Man Srngleaf The tennis team, weaker than in previous years, but still rated one of the top teams in the AAA, was faced with the tough task of keeping up Lowell's String of seven straight championships. Despite being hard hit by graduation and forced to use inexperienced players, the team trounced Lincoln, 6-1, and St. Ignatius, 7-0, in early league matches. The practice season was not nearly as successful as usual. The team lost its most important clashes to the Cal Frosh and City College. Bill Winston, jim Watson, Andrei Lubarsky, Steve Abel, and john Isaacs played the singles matches, while the doubles teams were Fred Winston and Roger I-Ierst, and Ken Arndt and Larry Draper.

Bullock won the high hurdles in at good time of 1.5:3, the Hrst time he ran the event this year. How- ever ,the 13O's stole the show by sweeping every event. POLY Vannucci and Cohn running 1-2 in the high hurdles, Yamabe's come-through performance in the broad jump, and Bullock's 51:8 in the 440, the fastest time in the city to date, highlighted the Cards' 62M-SOVQ victory over Poly. Gould and Zweig came through with wins in the low hurdles and pole vault, respec- tively. The 150's won, 75-22, but the 12035 lost, 50-18. GALILEO Victories by Bohne in the discus, Bell in the shot, Yamahe in the broad jump, and Bullock's 19:7 low hurdles, the second fastest time in San Francisco prep history, led the Indians to a 90-23 win over Galileo. The varsity relay team posted the AAA season's swiftest clocking. The 130's won, 88-7, and the 120's, 45-21.

Going into this, the last dual meet of the season, both were undefeated. The Eagles' depth coupled with some outstanding come through performances was the difference.

The 1954 golf team was the best balanced team Lowell has had in years. From first man Roger Bohne to sixth man Steve Abel hardly six strokes separated the team. Filling out the first team were Dick Rose, Captain Bill Honig, Don Krauss, and Glenn Bell. Top substi- tutes were Skip Brock, Larry Barnblatt, Larry Kay, Luther O'Brien, and Mike Friedman. Riordan High School beat Lowell in a practice match held at San Francisco Country Club. Then the boys went down to the Farm to meet Bud Finger's highly- touted Stanford freshman team. They gave the freshmen quite a scare before suc- cumbing 15-12. This ended the practice season, and the team went into the league play with an unimpres- sive O-2 score. The team defeated Balboa in its first league en- counter, 7V2-IM. Mission bowed, 5-4, in a real close match. St. Ignatius had lost to Washington, and was ready for Lowell. The best the Wildcats could do, though, was to get ZVZ points, and therefore bowed 65-25. Don Krauss was medalist with 76, while beating S.I.'s fourth man, 5 and 4. Next the undefeated Indians ran into the undefeated Washington Eagles, and something had to give. Un- fortunately it was the Indians who bowed, 6K2-ZVZ. Glenn Bell was low man for Lowell with 74. Despite -the graduation of four of the first six, Coach Livingstone has high hopes for next season, since the subs have done so well. PAGE SIXTY-THREE s.

PAGE SIXTY-SIX The smiling faces that you see on this page are those of the Scroll and L boys, carefully selected Lowell students who are willing and able to donate their services to their alma mater. The members of this honor and service society stand forileadership! service, and high scholarship. The Scroll and L men may be seen before and after a rally, decorating the windows overlooking the court with flags. During the rally they do their best to main- tain the type of conduct that keeps the standards of Lowell rallies so high. Heading the Scroll in their important jobs in the fall term were President Charles Curly, and Secretary- Treasurer Scott Sherman. Under these fall officers the Scroll worked with the Shield and L to put on a really great Newcomers Reception and the Freshmen Picnic. The spring term was quite a success too. Under their chosen officers, Glenn Bell, president, and Bert Shapiro, secretary-treasurer, they helped uphold the fine tradition that the Scroll has been known for since May, 1905. The Scroll boys brought the N ewcomer's Reception to a lively finale when they did their version of the Spring Dance. Everyone enjoyed seeing them dance in their gay crepe paper costumes. The Scroll proved themselves willing to tackle a job when they joined with the Shield to present the May Carnival. The job of decorating the court with streamers and other brightly colored attire was done by the Scroll. There are other services which the wearers of the red and white caps perform. They are a great help to the P.T.A. and do a fine job keeping order at the athletic events. W . i N. WEST F. NAPOLIN C. TASSI K. OPPERMANN S.

A Good Time Was Had By All Christmas Varieties Tremendous Success The Christmas Varieties of 1953 were another huge success thanks to the expert direction of Mr. Polland in the dramatics skits and Mr. Anino in the musical numbers. In all, the show had 26 acts in which about 150 Lowell students participated. The three performances were all sell-outs. Some of PAGE SEVENTY-EIGHT the outstanding skits were, "Little Birds in Their Nestsf' starring Bonnie Balthrope and Peter Bluett, and two very amusing sketches, "The Great White Salef' starring Dorothy Gordon, Peter Bluett, and Bruce Shafer, and l'Atmospherics," alternating players each night. Dear Ruth ls Term Play For the annual term play Mr. Polland and his dramatic group presented a comedy, "Dear Ruthf' on May 21, 24, and 26. The play concerned an ambitious young girl, Miriam Wilkins, who wrote letters to a soldier, sent her older sister's picture with one of the letters and signed her sister's name to the letters. Ruth, the older sister, not knowing of Miriam's work, was engaged to Albert Kummer. As the play progressed the soldier, Lt. Seawright, visited Ruth and then the fun began. The characters included Ruth Wilkins, played by Bonnie Balthrope, Miriam Wilkins, portrayed by Pat Jacoby and Cheri Dill, Mrs. Edith Wilkins was played by Dorothy Gordon, the father, judge Harry Wilkins was played by Charles Theiss, Lt. William Seawright was played by Peter Bluett, Carter Smith took the part of Albert Kummer, Martha Seawright was played by joyce Otken and Nancy Holtzworth, and the part of the sergeant was played by Bruce Shafer and King Harrington, and the maid, Dora, was played by Catherine Wehren and Myra Marks.

For this able crew is the group that adjusts the speakers, switches the lights, pulls the curtains and many other helpful things. The Chinese Students Club, which Mr. Buckley su- pervises, is quite active. They had a dance and have helped the Red Cross group in making Easter favors. CHESS CLUB F7'ffllfl'U1l'.' V. Kapostins. G.

Working as a unit which is essential for an organization such as this, they have won many honors for Lowell. This year they placed second in the 91st Division Drill Competition. Lowell had the best drill team in the Columbus Day Parade and they won a trophy in last Septembers football pageant. The rifle team has also won many honors. Lowell placed first in the Hearst Rifle Match for the city of San Francisco. The high man of this contest was George Lenaihan. Terry Lyttle who has received high score with an amazing consistency was awarded a Block L for his marksmanship, It is an established custom of the ROTC to have competition between the different companies. This year Company "A" was the winner of the company cup. The distinction of being the best platoon is held by HAI' Companyis first platoon. The third squad of the first platoon of "B" company won as the best squad. The first place winners for the individual compe- tition were first year cadet Bill Todd, second year cadet Bryan Lyttle, and third year cadet Mike Orloif. The annual Federal Inspection was held on May msn NINETY ROTC I,li.irles Neil, Robert Parker, Sam Detlerian. james jackson. 9, 1954, The Federal Inspection is the most important event of the spring term for the ROTC. The inspecting officers, Major Pena and Lieutenant Henderson inspected the facilities and observed the drill of the battalion in a formal parade and review. In the afternoon they gave a theory quiz to a repre- sentative group of 10 cadets from each year group. In the theory quiz Lowellls ROTC placed 10 per cent higher than the second place school. The Federal Inspection is a judging of the military achievements, such as the troops in ranks, physical de- velopment, and close order drill of the company, pla- toon, and the squad. This year, as always, Lowell received a very high rating. There are two reasons for the ROTC. One is to teach the principles of leadership, respect for consti- tuted authority, and habits of precision, orderliness, courtesy, hygiene and correctness of posture, and de- portment. The other is to give the student basic military train- ing which will prove to be a definite asset to him when he becomes a member of the armed forces. D. BERGER ljml. Cal. M .

Students Enjoy Working in Qffiees Lowell students have always been known for their service and cooperation. This reputation was upheld by those students who worked in the offices. Miss Lorigan's office was always busy and she had a wonderful group of girls to help her get the work done. There was always a lot of work to do in Mr. Peter- son's office and his assistants were always kept busy. Answering the phone or running errands kept Miss Harrison's helpers busy. PAGE ONE HUNDRED There was a big job for Mrs. Kendall, who is in charge of the mimeograph machine but with her as- sistants the job was done well. There was never a dull moment in the attendance office and Mrs. Cahen's assistants all enjoyed their work. Checking books in and out, filing cards and arrang- ing shelves was done by those who helped our libra- rians, Miss Anderson and Miss Scott. Those students who gave their time to work in an office had a wonderful time doing it. The Library Stal?

Then the necessary evils of attending classes, which, however, is not allowed to interfere with important research, nutritional pursuits, and healthful exercise. Mr. Robert Anino takes you through a typical day in the life of a teacher. First, a hearty, vitamin-filled breakfast. Then, a leisurely trip to school. Equipment is readied to deal with any minor discipline problem. Research material is carefully studied so that classes will be interesting and informative. Careful prepara- tion pays off as the class listens alertly and atlentively to every word Professor Anino utters. Noontime means time out for a light snack Qsix hot dogs, five hamburgers, a quart of milk, and three slices of banana cream pie, and a cheese enchiladaj. And finally, Mr. A's day ends on an unhappy note when audio-visual director Milton breaks the sad news that the six Marilyn Monroe films ordered by Instruc- tor Anino are not in the educational catalogue!
