' I VALEN CIA EDITED BY THE STUDENTS OF THE MABELLE SCOTT RANCHO SCHOOL AZUSA, CALIFORNIA, NINETEEN HUNDRED THIRTY-NINE FRGM OUR DIRECTOR The VALENCIA with its happy recordings of Mabelle Scott Rancho activities for the past year, reminds me that another school year is about to close and that it is time to bid farewell to my beloved seniors! It has been a Wonderful year, filled with happiness through close association, memories of which will remain with each and everyone of us throughout the years to come. I am proud of my large graduating class. I know that you will prove to the World that you have profited by the training you have received here with us. The VALENCIA staff has chosen a theme which is symbolic of the Rancho Ideals,-"See no evil, hear no evil: speak no evil," suggested by the little statue of "The Three Wise Monkeys," which has adorned my desk for many years. These three virtues are the basic principles on which we have built the characters of the girls Who have called the Mabelle Scott Rancho School their Alma Mater. May the happiness and inspiration that has been ours the past year, continue to influence your lives wherever you may go. eMabe1le Scott DEDICATION To you, Mrs. Scott, We dedicate this annual as a tribute to the inspiration We have received through your guidance during the school year. An annual seems a small tribute to pay to so lovely a person, but We can do little more than dedicate the VALENCIA and our loyalty to one who deserves all the honor and good that may be bestowed upon her throughout life. f EDITORIAL Beauty sat on her throne in the sky and looked down on the multitude below. How few of the people, she thought, realized that she was supreme, that if they thought of her, their lives Would be completely happy. She wondered how many of the individuals had followed the example of the three wise monkeys when they said, "See no evilg hear no evil: speak no evil." She contem- plated upon her importance to the existing fancies which ran through the minds of the people, and hoped that they realized that she was not only Beauty in the true sense of the word, but that she stood for ultimate perfection, goodness, and cleanliness in thought, word, and deed. Evil sat on his couch of thorns and a deep frown lined his forehead. The three wise monkeys had made people realize that he was of no earthly good. As lonq as the people kept their cogitations and acts occupied with Beauty, there was no room for him in their many medi- tations. The monkeys had brought the people to the reali- zation that there was Evil to contend with, but that Beauty could overshadow any of his acts, if they would only look upon her as the greater of the two. So the three monkeys brought about the final destruc- tion of Evil to perpetuate in the minds of the people, Beauty.

We, as graduates, carry away with us many fond memories ot the girls, the statt, and the genial atmosphere which pervades the Rancho. lt is our hope that we, as seniors, may leave to the girls following in our footsteps not mere memories, but traditions and customs that will be a challenge and an honor to uphold. May you who follow accept and carry on the privileges, which the seniors before you endeavored to attain, in an even more successful and conscientious manners-a heritage valuable not in theory but in practice. Y X1 Q SENICR CLASS PRCPHECY 'Tis a balmy summer evening in the year of '55, And the Ladies Aid Society is very much alive. The cause of their festivity, the daily papers say, For Miss Brogan, evangelist, a farewell party gay. They play at Chinese Checkers and enjoy a game of whist Before they've finally parted with the dear evangelist. Now most all the ladies present know the class of '39, And honor M. S. B. S. as a dear old school-girl shrine. They start to reminiscing as people often will, And recalling Baenford dances gives the ladies quite a thrill From somewhere in the gathering an annual comes to light And about the treasured yearbook the ladies nearly fight. Cuddles Wagner, they discover, is poet laureate: She is one successful person they vow never to forget. As dictator of Siberia, Kim Manley, can't be near, But they all hope to see her on her furlough due next year. Opal Field is quite successful in child psychiatry, And has a clinic and a school which she must oversee. Jeni Boyd, as museum curator, is working hard and long: She's been collecting elephants and still is going strong. Doris Clark resides in Reno mostly for convenience sake: She finds that there the marriage vows are easier to break. Ruthie now is president of Bowen Pest Control, - But when the "Board of Health" is gone, the situation's droll. Mary Kathryn Iohnson is a second K. Cornell, In radio and on the stage she's doing very well. Connie Carter's not been heard from since l954, She left that year for China to report upon a war. Micky Bailey, senior president, has all the children scared: She is now a truant officer fthe kids have badly faredl. Ieanne loyce, a Nobel prize winner for the year of '53, Now has two darling children to bounce upon her knee. ln our vivacious Sara interest never wanes For she's head airline hostess for the Pan Pacific planes. Pat, a secret service agent, makes the wires hum. lntercepting codes and messages must be lots of fun. Betty Brown spends her time travelling Cto be near the fleetl. Her husband, an officer, thinks a home would be a treat. Gay Thwaite Way back in '39 Wrote something rather sad. She had to flee the country, -the seniors were so mad. The ladies could recall the fifteen members of their class, And they knew all the gossip about each and every lass. So before they all disbanded and the meeting had adjourned A reunion, they decided, would be held when Kim returned.

'39 Entered '38 Court Officer '39 Dramatic Club '39 Allegro Club '39 Sorority '39 THE WHITE Welcome, junior friends, to the White Elephant Party. To act as hostess we have called Miss Mary Kathyrn johnson, a composite of all the fine qualities of our senior class. ln case anyone is unfamiliar with such a party, let it be understood here. A White Elephant Party is one at which some person or per- sons bring gifts of some kind for the benefit of charity. ln this case, the seniors are the generous benefactors and the juniors are the beneficiaries. The first upper classman to be welcomed by our charming hostess is our serious-minded f?j class president, Marilyn Bailey. Marilyn has something under her arm, which on closer inspection is none other than the eminent "Ferdi." Yep, Marilyn is going to sling a little bull right down Mary jane Strong's alley. There goes "Ferdi" in search of the flower Cof the junior class.D Marilyn leaves her funny little grin Cnot facel to a worthy junior, lucky Barbara Hall. Next in our passing parade Cwe listen to the radio tool comes Betty Brown astride "Snuffie Smith," the best hoss in the country. Iayne Gerrish, who has openly admired "Snuffie," now finds herself sole possessor of the beast. Betty, after saying an affectionate farewell to "Snuffie," doffs her Shirley Temple curls to Lee Elder. "Cuddles" Wagner offers her nick-name to the junior class. CDon't all rush at once, girls? Bette Clark is the fortunate one-"Cuddles" Clark-cute! She agrees to leave her vocabulary to Lee Elder, who, We hope, will use it as effec- tively, if not as often as the generous donor. Pat Ryon refuses to give away her beautiful fingernails but has been in- duced to part with her toenailse-Peggie Gray, well, maybe she can use them. Martha Enos steps up to receive some of Pat's sophistication. No doubt Sy- monds Hall Will be able to use a little sophistication when Pat is gone next year. just to be sure things don't go to seed in Symonds next year, Kathryn Man- ley leaves to Ieanne Clark her startling laugh, or cackle as it might be called by some. Her executive ability she leaves to Lorraine O'Donnell. Bonnie will have to go some to match Kim in attainments along the executive line. Of course, a party wouldn't be a party without the charming personality of jeanne Ioyce, whose untiring efforts in journalism made everybody sit up and take notice. Ah, Florence Clausen, a versatile junior girl, is the lucky re- ceiver, leannie leaves her dark eyes and Latin American loyalty to Peggie Gray, another daughter of the southern continent. E EPI-IANT PARTY Mary Kathyrn lohnson finally tears away from her friends and offers that ''how-to-win-friend5-and-influence-people'' disposition of hers to Donna Gaf- faney. With Donna's own sweet disposition plus that of "Iohnnie's" she ought to be a wow! Mary Kathyrn leaves her dramatic talent to Iacauie King, who, we hope, will make good use of it. Opal Lee Field leaves her many, many international relations scrap books to Miss Pitkin. We know Miss Pitkin will appreciate Cpal's thoughtfulness and we hope she finds time in her busy school life to read them from cover to cover. Opal's rapid speech, which is really quite an art, she leaves to Connie Hopkins. Connie Carter leaves her books of Dorothy Parker to Bette Clark. Here's hoping she gets around to reading them. The Can of Simonize CConnie's own special brand, which may or may not work as well for someone elsel she leaves to Bonnie. Margaret Brogan leaves her diet to lacquie King. As Marg didn't get thin perhaps Iacauie will, on trying it, get fat. Marg leaves her sister Cwe haven'i asked loan's consentl to leanne Clark. leneviv Boyd is finally induced to part with her membership card in the Liars' Club, of which she was a life member, to Donna Cfaffaney. No more tall stories Ienil Quackery, that's what it is. And that infernal machine, the eye- lash curler, goes to Mary lane Strong. We hope she will be able to keep her lashes untangled now. Buth Bowen leaves those distinguished eyebrows to Florence Clausen, who ought to be fairly well outfitted by now. Her P. M. A. love letters go to- guess who? The incineratorefooled, weren't you? Doris Clark leaves her vagueness to Mary lane Strong and her lovely boi- tle of Shalimar to Mary Ellen Edwards. Cay 'lhwaite leaves her subtle humor to Mary Ellen, and beloved "Aris- totle," the elephant, to Barbara l-lall. Sara McManus leaves the class minutes to Martha Enos, who will profit by following her example as far as secretarial duties are concerned. Sara leaves "Pacific," the giraffe to lacquie King. Gay Thwaite and Mary Kathyrn lohnson leave "Theodore," the broom, to the next occupants of Littlefield room l4. And so Miss lohnson says goodnight to her guests, ending a party un- equaled in gayety, wit, and fun-making. She leaves many fond memories with the seniors, as well as many new-found treasures with their successors. c-- U rift Wi! f ,f v,5?f,yf it Q. ,yjw l EANNE CLARK, President MARTHA ENOS Secretary FLORENCE CLAUSEN Treasurer We, the juniors, sadly but gladly, do hereby tender our resignations from the eleventh grade, and put in our applications for the positions soon to be vacated by the present senior group. We say, "sadly," because we have pro- fited so greatly from the past year as juniors. We worked and played, gave and received, erred and learned from our errors. We say, "gladly," because We realize we have safely crossed another stepping stone toward cur goal,- to have strong characters and clean souls. We feel we are better fitted to take over the duties as seniors, and so We hereby sign our names, pledging our- selves to another year of greater accomplishments.

The word brought lazy memories of our many happy times together. l could vi- vi ly remember the day we went trout fishing. Most of the big ones got away, t such is fisherman's luck. We brought back more trout than we could eat nd Margaret cooked them for us. We enjoyed ourselves immensely when we made out the following list for our Saturday night scavenger hunt: one long black stocking, two white bob- bie pins, l938 license plate, red tennis ball, driver's license, yellow tennis shoe, ' J I brown riding boot, and an orthoptera exopterygota in a jar.

We have had four new girls join us this semester, lean Richon, Angele Philippe, Patty Kelley, and lean Marples. ln the morning we have arithmetic, spelling, language, geography, history, and social studies. ln the afternoon we have a variation of art, reading, story telling, and botany. We are planning to study Mexico and China. The elementary girls have started a court similar to that of the high school girls. lean Richon holds the office of court judge, Leslie Srnoot holds the office of prosecuting attorney, and Pam Hippard is the clerk of the court. Leslie Smoot has also been acting as librarian and Anne Paterson is the desk and locker monitor. Patty Kelley has charge of the checking in and out of the sup- plies in the school room. Angele Philippe has the responsibility of checking the conduct of the younger children on the playground. Thus we take our place as young but important members of the school family. 4 I W5 lf ., ,t ilt Elementary at Play Roller Skating Y Z 55 I F 1 i Q V AX .Q c, Valencia Staff VALENCIA Are we, the students of this school, so many stuffed owls on a taxidermist's laboratory shelf? The staff of this yearbook resolved that the monotony of stereotype was to be thrown in the ash can tdid they succeed???l and that the 1939 VALENCIA would be different C?l. No more sugary and unnatural copy., conventional layouts or flattering pictures. Definitely not, they decided to be thoroughly unconventional. The staff was organized around an "Architect's Braintrustu with Ieanne loyce, the editor-in-chief, driven stark raving mad by uninterested editors. Marilyn Bailey as assistant editor directed activities whenever possible. Gay Thwaite handled the entire senior section with more than average ability. Iunior Editor Florence Clausen penned the first epistle to go to the higher-ups, and for her promptness she was rewarded with several others to write. Shirley Rogers added a none-too-inspiring ditty to the sophomore page, while Virginia Hughes possessed uncanny inability to complete the freshman article. Humor editor, lacquie King, found much enjoyment in her task of listen- ing to the wireless for new C?l jokes. Kathryn Manley, gagster deluxe, was art editor when not contributing supposedly sparkling humor to liven up the staff congregations. Virginia Frinell, her assistant, did all the tedious and usually unappreciated art connected with this yearbook. Peggie Gray, together with Connie Ereydig and Ann Abernathy, expended her energies in the feature di- vision, but was sometimes in the diminutive editor's curly locks. Sports was a two-man, or rather a two-woman, job. Martha Enos, who worked herself into a lather every time she wrote an article, handed in some fine copy, the other, Iayne editor's-stooge Cferrish, not only turned in lively accounts of sports events but also pinch-hit on all sorts of assignments. leanne Clark, business manager, and Marybelle Scott, assistant, put the VALENCIA over with a supercolossal advertising scheme. i Scott-O-Gram Staff SCOTT - CD - GRAM When the subscribers to the Scott-O-Gram peruse the finished example of journalistic achievement, they little realize what labor has gone into its pro- duction. One of the feature editors gives us the following peek behind the scenes: "For the first two weeks before the paper is due, we go to meetings every Monday and Thursday nights. The editor calls for the articles and everyone starts making up alibis for not having hers, but the sports editor is an exception and always gets her stuff in on time. The editor tears her hair and shrieks, 'we'll never get to press on time-we don't have enough stuff to fill twelve pages.' "Throughout the editor's cuibursts, the assistant editor sits and looks dis- interested: the business manager writes dreamily in her diary, the sports editor sits patiently putting up her hair in curlersp the social editor manicures her nails: the feature and art editors scribble on articles, and read books and letters on the side: and the lowly reporters Cwhen they manage to get to the meetingsl sit nodding wisely at opportune moments. "For the next two weeks, and for two days before the paper comes out, meetings are called in every spare moment. The editor and assistant franti- cally cut, revise, and switch articlesy the assistant and the business manager condescend to do a little typingy the art editors cut a few stencilsg the produc- tion department decides to type a few more stencils, and the other editors are hailed at odd moments, and are sent off to cover last minute news. "So Sunday arrives and from that morning until five minutes before the paper is sold, the typing room is a mess! With a radio to keep them going, a few suckers for work iusually the editor, assistant editor and art editorl start rolling the stencils off. The production staff works ferociously cutting the re- maining stencils. The skeleton staff, Asmeared with printer's ink, announces that the paper will be sold at eight o'clock. "After dinner the whole staff marches up to the typing room and starts putting pages together. At five minutes of eight the weary members throw the finished paper at the business manager and wobble to their little homes to collapse-and so you get your paper on time!" Senior High Drcrmcrtics UIGGDHS D'Arc" Iunior High Drcxmcrtics "Information Please" w 1 , s i E i E i Music Department "Deep Purple" MUSIC As the eldest brother of the great Steinway family, l have been chosen to relate our experiences with the girls of the Rancho. My brother, who lives in the auditorium, has been the honored guest at five recitals which Mrs. Mary Boyle has supervised. Most of the girls practice their daily lessons on me. Their awkward fingers at first linger on my keys, afraid and unsure of whether this note or that note will be correct. My keys gradually begin to feel an improvement, which brings a tingling feeling to me and makes me want to respond to their touch. As the end of the year comes around, my strings begin to vibrate with now skilled fingers, and I recognize many beautiful melodies. With this new vim and desire to play, my pupils leave me for the summer to bring melody and rhythm from the responsive strings of my relatives in other places. As fall arrives with the freshness of a new school term, my cousin, "Mr, Accordion," appears to make his home at the Rancho. Our little "squeeze box" is a novelty, and it is a pleasure to watch him perform. Soon our "squeeze box" cousin is not a novelty, but a needed and accustomed friend: and the girls who use him as a medium of expression, find that he is a willing compan- ion to them wherever they go. DRAMA The two dramatics classes displayed a great deal of real talent as the girls put into action the printed words in the scripts that fluttered around the campus during the first few rehearsals. "The Warrior's Husband" was a play in which the warriors were women and the men stayed at home curling their beards. "Seven to One" concerned a girls' sorority house and a glee club leader from Princeton-who was it that said, "Drama is conflict?" "Smokescreens" was another good play about a young girl whose mother and aunt had conflicting ideas concerning her upbringing. Our Christmas play was very appropriately called "Santa and Son," in which Santa's son tried to modernize his old-fashioned father: but the rest of the world would not have it! "The Falcon and the Lady" was presented one evening after a formal din- ner. lt was a romantic drama in one act. The junior high dramatics class also gave some very interesting plays. "The Fatal Quest" was one of these. A dashing young prince sought the hand of a beautiful princess, but in true melodramatic style, the characters all met a tragic end as the curtain fell. Hlnformation Please" was a play in which we saw only the silhouettes of the actresses behind a screen. The effect was excellent. ln assembly one Wednesday morning we were surprised with "Youths Highway," which concerned a promising young artist who came to be one of the Duke's apprentices. He turned out to be the genius, Michelangelo. COURT Wednesday night came at last! That night l had to Walk guiltily to the front of the auditorium to learn what my punishment would be. l had hoped that it would not be too severe. After all it was only my first summons. I strode up there, trying my hardest not to look nervous, to be sworn in by Mary Kath- yrn Iohnson, our court clerk. Connie Carter, the prosecuting attorney, told me that l was charged with leaving my room in disorder. l pleaded guilty with a auaking voice, and Kathryn Manley, the judge, informed me that I would Water plants around Scott Hall every other day for a week. l returned to my seat and breathed a sigh of relief. lt was over! lt Would not be so bad to water plants every other day for a week, but l resolved right there and then that that would be my first and last summons. At the end of the year l looked with envy at the eleven girls who came through the year Without receiving a summons. How Wonderful they must have felt! Besides that, Mrs. Scott took them out for the evening as a reward for their efforts to help her during the year. This year these girls Were: leneviv Boyd, Sallye lames, leanne Ioyce, Kathryn Manley, Barbara McBeth, Pat Byon, Eleanor Wagner, and Mary Ella Culver.

You cannot touch me, but my presence is always felt. You cannot hear me, yet my com- mands are all obeyed. I am the spirit ot the Alpha Tau Gamma Sorority. At social gatherings no one sees me, and so I am not thankedp but who does not bless my existence subconsciously when refreshments are served? During the numerous meet- ings of the club no one gives me a thought, but without me the Sorority would surely tail. Yet it is not only l who give. In return tor my gifts I demand loyalty, aa- miration, and love. Each of my subjects has served me valiantly in these re- spects. lt is an honor to me to know that my being is respected and I rejoice every semester at the new group of girls who are willing to submit to the per- iod of pledging in order to join the others over whom I reign. Every time a song is sung in the dining room, or a spring dance performed on the lawn, I thrill to think that it is being done for me. Yea, my reward is great. I tind myself the center ot high school activities, and I have grown greatly through the efforts oi the members of the Alpha Tau Gamma Sorority. I, the spirit of A. T. G., thank those who have made my pleas- ant existence possible. LANGUAGE CLUB Through the ages of history Latin has been known as the father of all languages, and through the years of this school, Latin has been the head of the family of language classes. The honor of being the oldest son in this unique family has been bestowed upon the musical Spanish language. Perhaps it is because of the proximity of the school to Mexico and the many occasions when it is necessary to speak Spanish, that it holds such great interest among the girls. The first year Span- ish class has proved to be one of the most original and interesting groups on the campus: the class is conducted entirely in Spanish. The next member of the family is the French language. The French students have been particularly interested in the history and literature of France. The class is extremely fortunate in having both teacher and students Who have traveled abroad and who can relate many interesting tales concerning the French people and their customs. Fortuna Bona! Bonne Chance! Buena Suertel-and the father and sons leave you with the words you all understand-Good Luck! Allegro Club Glee Club CI-IORAL CLUBS With a spirit oi Christmas reigning over the campus, the Glee Club sere- naoled the girls on our Christmas Eve, and turnisheol atmosphere for the Christ- mas play by accompanying the performers. The members enjoyed the informal meetings that were held twice a Week, during which choral singing was developed. The Allegro Club was formed this year, a club consisting of musically- inclinecl girls, who made many contributions to the musical events on the cam- pus. The Allegro has a most impressive initiation with spooky sheets, jungle tomtoms, and the usual paraphernalia. lt has done much to further music appre- ciation on the campus and has clone a great oleal of A Cappella singing. 1939 1932 D. I. CLUB The best "raison d'etre" for any organization is service. Keeping this in mind the D. I.'s joined with the Sorority and senior class to provide Christmas baskets for the poor. The looks of gratitude on the faces of the poor families made us Want to keep the spirit of "giving" all year instead of only at Christ- mas time. After the initiation at the beginning of the year, the aim of the Club was to do something different. The attempt which We made at ice skating at the Tropi- cal lce Gardens was the most memorable of our social activities. Most of us spent the afternoon picking ourselves up from the cold surface. We felt rather chilly and stiff, but we were able to thaw out when We stopped for something to eat on the Way back. Our ideals of service, loyalty, friendship, and cooperation will prove an inspiration in all our future activities. HONOR SOCIETY Education is the priceless heritage of all Americans. lt perpetuates the prin ciples on which our country was founded. The truly great American is the per- son Who takes advantage of his education and uses it to protect his own rights and those of future generations. The Honor Society stands for those who have gained recognition through their high school standing. They have Worked toward a goal Whose only re- ward is the preparation which will tit them to occupy their places in this World -and they have won that goal. We congratulate the girls who have main- tained an A or B average every Week during the year. 'x . t I n d,,f"" Jw 3135 WJXM5-Xilzlt Vg Wk .mmf X wk W ww! My if wr X K..

I Polo cmd Equestrian Polo Club Blue cmd Gold Polo in Action V , PCDLO Displaying greatly improved form in both horsemanship and stick-work, the Polo Club had a very successful season. The lunior and Senior Polo Clubs of last year were merged, and the veterans of previous seasons were joined by many new and enthusiastic girls who aspired for perfection in this fascinat- ing sport. For convenience the club was divided into two teams, the Blue and the Gold, with several substitutes for each. On the Blue team, leanne Clark played a difficult "waiting game" at number one position. Barbara lean Loustalot played active number two. Martha Enos played an equally active game at the first line of defense. Marybelle Scott also played a difficult "waiting game" at the back. For the Gold team, Connie Carter rode well at forward. Ieanne loyce started the attack at number two. Ann Abernathy at "pivot" succeeded nicely in changing the play from one of defense to one of offense. Nedra Moore at number four followed her opposing number one. Lyla Lambert, Pam l-lippard, layne Gerrish, Connie Freydig, Georgette Zorb, Virginia Prinell, lane Strachan, and Florence Clausen substituted in all positions. ln the actual play, because of the speed of the game, the players quite frequently found themselves out of their assigned positions. They then tempo- rarily assumed the duties of the position in which they found themselves and so carried on until they could conveniently resume their regular places. The Polo Club held a gymkana during the latter part of March, which was the hit of the riding season. The events were many and varied, with novelty races proving the most popular. Comedy as funny as that provided by a Mickey Mouse short was the egg and spoon race. More serious but no less ex- citing was the six chukker polo game, and also the more conventional three- gaited horseshow, in which some very beautiful horsemanship was shown. After Easter vacation a bus left the Bancho early one morning with the en- tire Polo Club and a few chosen "enthusiastic" guests. Their destination was the Biviera Country Club in Santa Monica, and the event on tap for the day was a whole day of stick-and-ball and polo. This was just one of several such days throughout the school year, and one of the times when Mr. Ralph An- clerson's expert instruction showed to the best advantage. White Horses "And vaulted with such ease into his seat As if an angel dropped clown from the clouds, To turn and Wind a fiery Pegasus And Witch the world with noble horsemanshipf' . .s w '3iiitZ4Z5'.iI1E'-5n.'5!xi tmim4??m24l12 7' I-f QS- 1...- H . -12' 3 t l A, 31.0 - It is said to be true by English riding masters that a rider must fall from his mount six times before he can attain perfection. Americans state that the number is three, but the Ranchoettes have proved the exception to the rule. ln relation to the fine riders and the number of riding days in the school year, there are comparatively few falls and accidents. The elementary girls are perhaps the most fond of the equestrian art, especially when trick riding on the two tiny Shetland ponies, Punch and ludy, is offered. When the girls return their favorite ponies to the stable from the last ride of the year, there is no doubt but that the remorse in their hearts is much the same as that of the Arab chieftain who is forced to sell his be- loved friend and comrade on the auction block. SWIMMING Swimming was divided into a duo season, with the tirst halt scheduled for the tall semester. Two ot our popular and capable instructors planned the tall intramural swimming meet tor October 3. The Blue squad, made up of girls from each division, chalked up the most points. Many novelty events as well as races and diving contests were incorporated into the carnival. The night- gown race, in which the girls attempted to swim the length ot the pool in record time, proved to be the most humorous. The daily newspapers were scanned with interest from the water as the girls, swimming on their backs, tried to keep their journals dry. The most enjoyable event was the watermelon race. After study hall the winning team gathered around a crackling tire in the bar- becue pit to devour the melon. On the eleventh ot March the surface ot the pool was broken tor the first time in the new year. The following week swimming was begun in the after- noon gym class, and soon afternoon classes in junior lite saving and diving were started.

When school com- menced in September they eagerly gathered about the new target and other equipment and began to shoot for the bull's eye. The first tournament was held during the Armistice Play Day celebrations. Martha Enos, Marybelle Scott, Bette Clark, and Genevieve lames exhibited exceptional rnarksmanship as their bow strings tightened, their arms straight- ened, and their arrows hissed through the air to hit the mark tor which they aimed. Throughout the year the girls showed increased interest in the exciting game, and the target was thoroughly peppered by the time the challenge came to the girls to enter other sports. ,La J 5 f ' ' Gifffvy W' 4 Wf- fz :A , fe! d, ,Za ,W BADMINTON f x , A longing for something new-for action, for excitementethese desires were met by the addition of badminton to the extensive list of sports on the campus. lt is not as yet a part ofthe physical education courses, but it has been received wholeheartedly especially by those who wish to keep their "girlish figures" and do not care to enter into the more strenuous sports. For people who are unfamiliar with it, badminton is a racquet game with shuttlecocks or "birds" used in place of balls. By the time summer vacation is ready to begin, our Ranchoettes will be able to take their place on any court with the best, and to give them a run for their money. TENNIS Ready? Service! What a grand return-there's nothing like a smashing forehand drive to start a game of tennis. lf you want exercise, then tennis is your game! Even 'though you may not be able to keep up a good, fast rally, you can always get exercise by chasing the balls that go over the fence. Tennis enthusiasm begins here in the first grade and continues to the high school seniors. lust as the younger girls look up to the older girls to reach per- fection, the advanced players look toward the international champions for inspiration. Time makes no difference to the players, for the tennis courts are always resounding with a thrilling game of tennis. hi! A 1 S ' YEQSX AP' QP. XJ sv , , Q A xii N 5 1 r 1 ix A F3 1 X.

Qlv BASKETBALL It was Armistice Day when l flung the curtains of the window apart and first gazed on the basketball court below. l saw the start of the basketball season- a tournament between classes-with the juniors playing an exceed- ingly fast game. All through the year as l enthusiastically watched the teams, it seemed as though the juniors were unconquerable. The games which closed the year were held in early spring and the juniors fulfilled the predictions by winning the championship. This last game also gave Connie Carter, Doria jones, Martha Enos, Virginia Frinell, Connie Hopkins, Virginia Hughes, jacquie King, and Marybelle Scott basketball letters. l hope to watch similar contests next year from my favorite vantage point. VOLLEYBALL A volley is a simultaneous discharge of small weapons, especially explo- sives. A ball is a spherical body used for play. A combination of these two very simple words, volley and ball, makes a very significant sport, volleyball. What is this game? Two teams of explosive, lively girls pitted in a struggle for su- premacy in this fast sport. Therefore, the ball, or spherical body, is the weapon discharged by means of explosives. This is the most descriptive explanation of the vivacious Banchoettes at play on the volleyball court, according to Mr. Noah Webster, the authority. BASEBALL As the major and minor leagues of the country begin their spring practice, the Banchoettes commence to form teams and play their own games. The spring warm-up begins early in April, and we are always glad that Mr. Anderson willingly gives his time to pitch for us. just as the big leagues say "over the fence is out," we say, "over the school buildings is out." When the first days of spring appear, we know it is the time for baseball, for we see signs of horsehide fever, and hear in campus conversations many baseball terms such as "batter up," "strike" and, the most exciting of all, "home run."
