Dedication Fritz Berens, conductor of the Sacremento Symphony Orchestra, raised his baton and the new gymnasium began to swell with rich, mellow strains of the music of long-ago composers .... but to the teachers and students who sat wrapped in the memories of the years that had brought us to this moment of dedication, an undercurrent of a stronger, more compelling kind of music began to creep in and mingle with the overture. It was a restless , vigorous, jarring kind of music, beginning with the low, insistent complaint of a bulldozer joined by the steady grind of a cement mixer. Slowly the high-pitched wail of a power saw and the spit and hiss of acetylene torches blended into the wild, strange music ...... The music told of a growing California, of a mush- rooming community, of dedicated teachers, and thousands of young people with a thirst of knowledge. This was the "Mills Iunior High Overture." May the "music" we compose in this new building provide the key to the future and enrich the lives of every student who passes through her halls. rx ua Presentation In accepting from architect,William Koblie, the keys to the finished building, Richard Rumsey, Student Body President, recalls the days when the roof for physical education classes was the open sky and a flapping tent was the dres- sing room. Smiling Keith Iacob, Mills Iunior High School Principal, is no doubt remembering the time when he and his office staff supervised school affairs from a smallhouse trailer parked in front of six classrooms. PTA mothers serve as hostesses to the large throng of parents and friends at- tending the dedication. nik 3 I ii-,, :if 7. Q11 ,, 'Mindy' ,ii . -l1ZlM'w a

It makes little difference that the "covered wagons" were huge, orange school busses .... they must have left the familiar behind with the same misgivings that other pioneers felt a-s they struck out toward the unknown. Their destination was a new school building in Rancho Cordova, a little place not yet on the map. Rancho Cordova was a fine place for hunting rabbits in those days, the boys recall. The town consisted of one grocery store, a few shops, a sprinkling of homes, and miles of olive or- chards , vineyards and the ever-present rock piles left behind by previous pioneers. Mr. Iacob, the Principal, and Gwin Hogin, Alma Knatz, Stan Noble, Don Smith, and Bernadine Spears led their little group of studentsout through the mud and driving rain, over pieces of lumber and bits of broken bricks to the five rooms that made up the new Mills Iunior High School. Accord- ing to state law, a teacher was entitled to 30 minutes a day away from the students ..... and the, teachers that year occasionally found relaxation in an unfinished classroom baracaded by packing boxes to provide privacy. An increasing enrollment in the fall of 1958 had increased the faculty to l3'and forced the principal to take up quarters in a trailer out in front of the building. But still the construction con- tinuedand the clang and clatter of the workmen became a familiar background music. The fall of 1959 found 26' faculty members and 800 students beginning another term amid the same familiar noises and construction. By now there were 24 classrooms and a new library. Stu- dents stillhate sack lunches in the rooms at noon, and the physical education department operated under the open sky for the drizzling raini with flapping tents serving as dressing rooms. Construction hadfreached a fever-pitch by the fall of 1960. The 45 teachers and 1, 100 stu- dents became immune to the 'bedlam around them. Nobody noticed when, with a crash of falling plaster, a workman's hand came through the wall to connect a new wire. The feet of a bricklayer on a catwalk just outside the window seemed normal. Classes simply recited in a louder tone in competition to the ever-present noises. October 4,51 1961 ...... and 55 ,teachers and 1, 500 students saw the completion and dedication of the finished school. Here she stands ...... .OUR school. . .in the midst of a community of 23, 000 and one that is destined to become, in the next half-century, one of the largest metropolitan areas in America .... and WE ARE THE PIONEERS. :1 'S , . 1 if ' 1 it ' T -' :re-, ig 5
