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
This year's Red and White is dedicated to
the graduating classes of 1954, the "High 'n'
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
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.

Demi of Bnyr
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
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!

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-
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.
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
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-
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-
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.

The j.V.'s had one of their best seasons in several
years. 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.

Fresh-Soph Griclciers Beat Poly
Ring out the banners, scream with happiness, carry
these brave bearers of the Lowell banners on your
shoulders. 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,
These are the guys who will someday be the Lowell
varsity. With some support they may beat Poly again.
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.

I-iarriers Dual Meet 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
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
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-

l7O's Wi'n Three,
It must be admitted that the 1O's had a below-par
season. 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.

league. The lil' Injuns lost only to Poly, S.H., and S.l.'s
Victories were over Washington, Lincoln, Mission,
Balboa, and Galileo. The little cagers went through a
hair-raising schedule, every game in doubt until the
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-

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,
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

The 130's 2-6 record was not up to par with the

the league. Rounding out the first string were Tsuyuki,

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
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

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

LOWELL 32-ST. IGNATIUS 42
Harried by a full court press, Lowell lost its second
game in four starts to S. I., 42-32. 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.
LOWELL 59-ASACRED HEART 24
Grider scored 24 points for the third consecutive
game as Lowell easily defeated Sacred Heart, 59-24.
The Neifmen pulled away after the Hrst quarter which
ended 13-12. They dominated the game so completely
that in the fourth quarter Lowell outscored the Irish,
Lou Pelfini played his last game for Lowell. 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
two hook shots by "Goose" Grider gave Lowell a 10-
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-
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

Baseball Team Vtfins Une, Loses Seven
Although Lowell seemed to be fielding a stronger
and more experienced baseball team this season, it
failed to live up to expectations. 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.

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

ings in the All-City meet.
Some of the boys who gave their best were Al

eran, Dave Heilbron in the 100-yd. free style rounded

Last, but not least, there are the 120's. Ricky Colksy

Lowell's track teams opened their 1954 campaign
by defeating St. Ignatius, 70-43, in the varsity meet,
85-0, in the 150's, and a 46-22 victory for the 120's.
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.
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.
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,
Lowell's undefeated track team coasted to a spark-
ling 97-16 victory over Lincoln.
Bullock was outstanding with a double victory, a
19:6 low hurdles and in the very next event a 23.2
furlong victory. The 130's won 72W-ZZVZ, and the
120,s won, 37-31.

Lowell bowed to Washiiugton, 69-44, as the Eagles
won their fourth straight AAA dual meet champion-
ship. Going into this, the last dual meet of the season,
both were undefeated.
The Eagles' depth coupled with some outstanding

highlight of an otherwise dismal day.

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
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.

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
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

A friendly personality, good scholarship, and good
citizenship are the main qualifications for the Big
Sisters at Lowell. These upperclass girls make it their
business to help every new girl at Lowell to feel as
much at home as possible.
Every new girl is assigned a big sister when she
comes to Lowell. The big sister meets her on the first
day of school, shows her around and acquaints her with
other girls at Lowell.
Some of the Big Sisters' successful functions during
the term were the Little Sister party, the luncheon, and
the ushering at the Newcomers Reception. just recently

Without the Stage Crew, Lowell's rallies in the
court, or productions in the auditorium, would be fail-
ures. For this able crew is the group that adjusts the
speakers, switches the lights, pulls the curtains and
many other helpful things.

pervises, is quite active. They had a dance and have
helped the Red Cross group in making Easter favors.

score with an amazing consistency was awarded a Block

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!
