ELDERA J OLSON Pruncupal
A few years ago l spent some tame In Delhu the old Mogul capital of lndua Among
the palaces and other archltectural glories of a colorful past the thang whuch Interested
me most was the throne room or Hall of Speclal Auduence Thus beautiful snowy vvhute
marble pavllron stands on a raised platform nts flat roof supported by engrauled
arches and plllars Inland vvlth flowers ID green serpentine and many colored agate
and other prectous stones ln the ceullng ID letters of gold IS the world famous rnscrup
tl n If there be a paradtse on earth It IS this It IS t rs
As l stood there and pondered this strllang lnscrlptuon I notrced all about me ey:
dences of ruxn and decay These men had spent th riches of Indra and sacrlfrced
hundreds of ltves to create a "paradlse" vvhach would not last
Today, people In all walks of llfe are looking for the Pearl of great prrce Many
are spendung whole llfetrmes of energy and means to create some paradrse vvhuch wall
perlsh But today, more than ever, the world needs young men and women, honest,
sincere, forguvung, large hearted, Chrlstllke who are building structures of eternal value
It needs those who are fanthful to the enduring pruncnples and :deals that have been
held before us IH this Chrrstlan school during the year vvhlch IS now dravvlng to a close

Ist Semester A.S.B. President
It was my privilege to be chosen president of the
Associated Student Body of Modesto Union Academy for
the first semester. It is here that I wish to extend my appre-
ciation to a fine office staff, the sponsor-Mr. Schwindt-,
faculty and especially the student body as a whole. I am
sure as God looked down on our meetings, parties, and assemblies He was very much
pleased with the attitude of all.
We all know a crisis is coming in the last days. We here at Modesto Union Acad-
emy have discovered and learned many things that will make us stand true tothe ideals
of Christ. Many will leave this year, including myself, and I am sure they will always
look back at good old M.U.A. as a place of true Christian association,
2nd Semester A.S.B. President
The school spirit of M.U.A. is greatly promoted by the
Student Association. The second semester has proved no
exception to this statement. The Student Association serves
to draw the students together, and to bring out their talents,
They were given a chance to do this in the Amateur Hour,
which was the first one put on at M.U.A. Other activities included several chapel pro-
grams and the annual spring picnic. With the loyal support and cooperation of each
student, we bring this successful year to a close, thanking all for their part.

Under the capable leadership of their president, LaVelle Wissner, and her able assistants: Delores Anderson,
Roberta Maxwell, and Joyce Mathiesen, the Girls' Club of Modesto Union Academy was off to a good beginning
for the new year.
Many activities were planned for the year and the girls had some wonderful times together. First, they gave a
talent program on November 20, which was a good representation of the Club. Then came the biggest event of all-
their formal banquet. The auditorium was beautifully decorated with streamers coming down to a lighted Christmas
tree which truly gave it a Christmas atmosphere.
The girls also sponsored two interesting films on .iaturday evenings and sold refreshments in order to help raise
money for their proiect, which was, draw drapes for the chapel rostrum, which will add much to its usability and
Of course, there were things they would have liked to have done had there been more time in which to work
them in. Our sponsor, Miss Chinn, brought together the girls more closely through her love and helpful guidance.

BAND HISTORY - T955
We started this school year with a band membership ot thirty. The second semester raised it to forty. There are
two bass horn players, three on baritones, two trombones, two horns, ten trumpets and cornets, four drummers itwo
snares, one bass, one cymbalsl, one bell lyra, three flutes, seven clarinets and six saxophones.
While we had several experienced players, because ot the preponderance of the "new crop" members it was
necessary to play easy music, the Bennett Band Book KNO il, particularly, The second semester we' concentrated
upon music "over our heads", in order to take part with older and more experienced groups at the great massed
band festival at Pacific Union College, April 3. Some of these numbers included symphonic arrangements ot Bach. So,
this year's music library might well be captioned, "From Bennett to Bach."
Students, faculty, and community have cooperated with unusual enthusiasm in order to help develop a pro-
The merit system has been a boost to industry on the part of individuals.
The band has taken part in several musical programs. At the festival our own feature number of K. L. King's
"The Iron Count Overture", a melodious number of medium difficulty.
It is our sincere wish that our Modesto Union Academy Band continue to add its measure to a harmonious

As a means ot expressing the daily activities and opinions of students a school paper has no equal With this
cnglish period As a result Two persons were selected by each class to represent them in This new proiect A meeting
of these individuals resulted in the choosing among them ot the various staff otlicers
A name for this newest member ot The academy family was carried on in a little contest The winning name
Humor and Rumor was submitted by Tim Bisel
Before the school year was over each of the classes had the privilege of producing one issue ot Humor and
Humor making it distinctly their very own This promoted cooperation and class spirit
Prospects Tor another year of Humor and Rumor are bright with The hope that it may progress from a mimeo
