GEORGE PERRY Dean of Boys WE LOOK TO OUR SENIORS TO CARRY ON! ONLY a few months ago we were welcoming a group of excited, wriggling freshmen, who came with curiosity to find what peculiar beings lurked in the corners of these buildings. "Where do we go from here?" was the unspoken question in every eye, and "What will those wild sophomores do to us?" was the terrorizing thought in every mind. I The seniors whose photographs dignify the pages of this annual should look back at their freshman selves in the book of 1934 to see the notable changes that have occurred. A shock came to me recently when I looked at a certain page in the California Golden Book. I was pleased to identify certain members of a group as my friends. Then all lingering traces of egotism left me when I realized that the oddest person in the group, wearing a peculiar form of cartwheel on her head, contained the soul of me. No matter what the style of future times may be in dress or in manner of thinking, I hope that there may always be growth of fine ideals within you, and that honesty, fair mindedness, courage, and willingness to work will carry you along the high road of service. My hopes for all of you are strengthened as I recall what very recently a student wrote in answer to the question, "Does the world owe you a living?" "The world does not owe me a living: I owe the world the best I have in me."

Everyone has it, but the successful man or Woman has developed it to a fuller extent. A man may know a profession or a trade, or he may be a clever businessmang but without per- sonality he finds it hard to compete with the man who has learned the knack of "getting along" with everyone with whom he comes in contact. It may be that the man with an undeveloped personality has made the serious mistake of confining all of his attentions to his books, while the man who has succeeded has obtained a rounded development from school activities. A development of personality is mainly an enlarging of interests and social contacts, activities are the accepted ways of fostering interests and bringing students into active social contact on a common basis. For this reason, school activities are a vital part of any student's life, and any student, who qualifies, may satisfy his interests in the activities offered at Diablo. For instance, good French students join the French Club where they take their interests further than the class-room. For students desirous of furthering their dramatic ability, there is the Players' Club, and for experienced students, the Sword and Bauble. Aspiring journalists Work with the Scribblers' Club. This year, a group of players organized the Chest Club, showing that it can be done. Thus it is, that linked together with success are personality and the ability to work well with others. Both requisites can be achieved through the broadening effects of joining at least one of Diablo's varied activities. TORCH AND SCROLL THE TORCH is symbolic of the unfaltering fidelity of a loyal citizen to the obliga- tions and the duties he has assumed as an integral part of American society. The scroll is the ancient symbol of learning. To these ideals, coupled with service and loyalty, the members of the Torch and Scroll have pledged themselves. TORCH AND SCROLL I-LIC l?'h'X.!XCflJhGu . . SWORD AND BAUBLE THE SWORD AND BAUBLE HONOR SOCIETY was formed tor the purpose of developing an appreciation of the best in dramatic production, recognizing ability and encouraging ettort in dramatic art. ln order to be eligible tor member- ship, a student must have taken part in two major plays or the equivalent. Each year the society, under the direction of Miss lrma Bromley, presents a play. The proceeds are voted to the scholarship fund and to the stage fund. THE PLAYERS' CLUB THE PLAYERS' CLUB has been organized to foster the ambitions of students, par- ticularly lower classmen, who are interested in dramatics. This club is a step- ping-stone to participation in school plays and membership in the Sword and Bauble Honor Society. Each year the club presents two one-act plays for the benefit of the scholarship fund. The adviser and director of this club is Miss Elena Bartlett. as 20 cc SWORD AND BAUBLE THE PLAYERS CLUB CHESS CLUB SCRIBBLERS CLUB CHESS CLUB THE GAME of chess is a very old pastime that has enjoyed universal accept- ance. The intricacies of manipulating the chess men on the board not only tax the player's powers of concentration but sharpen his interest in the game as well. An unusual procedure in the election of the president of the Diablo Chess Club gives the highest office to the best player. Any president who loses three out of five successive games in the presence of witnesses, forfeits his office to his oppo- nent. SCRIBBLERS' CLUB MEMBERS of the Scribblers' Club, sponsors of the Diablo Oak Leaves, and the editors, are to be complimented for the excellent work they did on this literary magazine. This year's number is the first attempt to present a collection of essays, poems, and editorials by the students alone. We are confident, judging from the enthusiasm that greeted this issue, that the continuance of the Diablo Oak Leaves is assured. :QZI cc ORCHESTRA THF YEAR lQ36-37 was a notable one for the music department at Diablo. The orchestra, with Mr. Lockhart as director, did commendable work at all school functions. The entire string ensemble had the distinction of playing at the Music Festival in Martinez, May 7. BAND MEMBERS of the band deserve their capes, for Mr. Lockhart and they Worked diligently and faithfully giving concerts in both Walnut Creek and Concord to earn sufficient money to "dress up" the band for the contest in San Francisco, May l5. The capes, which are Worn over white, are navy blue, lined with green, and trimmed with a narrow red strip, thus carrying out the school colors. The caps are green and red. The band played at games and student body meetings and not only provided entertainment, but also enlivened school spirit. Diablo is justly proud of its band. ORCH! BAND CHORAL UNDER the direction of Miss Bland the choral, composed of seventy-three mem- bers, has become one of Diablo's outstanding organizations. Throughout the year this group gave many splendid performances among which the musical program at the Christmas Cheer Play was outstanding. . lrene Abel, Eleanor O'l-lara, and Grace Trimingharn represented Diablo at the Western States Music Conference in San Francisco in March. lrene Abel and Eleanor Ol-fara played under the masterful direction of Alfred Hertz, distin- guished conductor of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Grace Triming- ham played in the band, led by one of the outstanding band conductors of the Pacific Coast, Mr. Frank Mancini. MUSIC MAIOR-1937-1938 DIABLQ students, for the first time, are to have the opportunity of majoring in music. This is particularly planned for those, registered in the general course, Wishing to take music as a second major. X! A-Pr -5 5 we I ,, W W W M V. . -in-,f-gf? A ,, S3 .mx W--K BOYS' SPORTS DIABLO has finished one of its most successful athletic seasons. Because of record turn-outs for almost every sport, the athletic program is reaching and affecting more individuals than ever before. More boys have learned the essen- tials of good sportsmanship, fast thinking, and the ability to take the knocks. More boys have felt that "breathless moment" just before the kickoff or the tipoff. Not everyone is experienced enough, or has the ability to start a game, but due to the extended junior varsity program, many boys, who otherwise would have had to spend the entire game on the bench, have participated with fellows from other schools. From these new contacts the boys have learned to play and to cooperate with the fellows whom they don't know, to make the game one of mutual benefit and enjoyment. This is better known as "getting a1ong" with the other fellow. More individuals have learned one of the most essential rules of life, and that is to play the game for all they are worth, to enjoy the game, and still to follow the rules of the game. Although they never think of them as such, these points are why fellows turn out for sports. Foremost in their minds, as a rule, is the idea of piling up a bigger score than that of their opponents or limiting their opponents to a minimum score. However, they know that score must be piled up in a clean, decent manner, in other words, "VICTORY WITH HONOR." It takes the best of their skill and ability to win the game the hard but the right way. This season, for some sports, was not so outstanding as far as the scoreboard was concerned. That came second. What came first was the fact that more fellows learned the fundamentals of the game and how to handle themselves, without getting seriously injured. They have a fine start for college athletics or life. Not only do major sports receive their share of attention, but tennis, swimming, and soccer are fast gaining followers. With fellows competing in the N. C. S. swimming meet at the University of California, various tennis matches being played with Diablo boys throughout the bay region and talk of a soccer league, minor sports are growing rapidly. Altogether the athletic program is more than a source of entertainment, or revenue, or a way to build up the school's reputation. In the space of four short years fellows develop into men, men who can take their places in the world and do the jobs assigned to them. The athletic program is a machine that takes raw material and molds it into men who will be a credit to their school and to them- selves. x25e -tn-L -' ' .,:Qk M551 k',k .A E , A K 'Q K "YA Y ' g 'Q' " ,K 1-jf A QW:-Ira S'i:'5-fri?-l -mn 'f s.

Although the team lost the league championship by one point, it returned to defeat the champions a week later by several points. Throughout the season the middle-weights, coached by Les Williams, distinguished themselves by their fine attitude, sportsmanship, teamwork, and a desire to make a tine ball club. "C" BASKETBALL THE C basketball team took another step upward in their tight tor recognition as a fine ball team this year. The boys had to hustle from their dinners to the game almost every Friday night of the season to stage the premier, and they made the games worth coming to see. A fine group of lightsweight fellows played a good game of ball, and brought credit to the school they represented. It was easy to see that the "small boys" had become "big-time" ball players. Many times the class C and B games proved as interesting and exciting as the Varsity games, and no longer did spectators come to see the Varsity games only, the B and C games were exciting enough to bring a large crowd to see their conquests. 22844 B BASKETBALL C BASKETBALL BASEBALL l TRACK 1 TRACK VICTORY after victory was chalked up this year for the Diablo track team. Every league track meet went to Diablo, as well as the highest honors in the class B division of the Martinez relays on May 9. To add to this long string of victories was the performance of the Diablo weight men. They distinguished themselves in various meets throughout the Bay Region with record throws in both the shot and the discus. ln the NES meet at Stanford, May l5, Firpo Grossi won the shot with a throw of 51 feet 9 inches, and Warren Harding took second in the discus with a throw of l28 feet, both against some of the sternest opposition in the state. BASEBALL AS ONE of Diablo's outstanding sports, baseball distinguished itself by fine ball games and large turnouts. This shows that more students than ever are seeing the values of the "Great American Game." The same clean game was played here as in all of Diablo's competitive sports and the Whole team deserved a big hand for the fine way they represented Diablo's spirit on the diamond. by 29 C4 GIRLS' ATHLETIC SEASON GIRLS' SPORTS this year have been especially attractive and worthwhile. The goal of each girl, interested in developing her skills, has been membership in the Girls' Athletic Association. This may be attained during the four years at Diablo by the completion of the requirements of five different sports in a true sportsman- like manner. This association is headed by a council which includes a general sports manager or president, secretary, faculty adviser, and the managers of the several sports. The program is varied, offering hockey, basketball, speedball, and volley ball in the fall, and tennis, golf, archery and baseball in the spring. Through these - sports Diablo girls obtain recreation and relaxation. Swimming and badminton are special popular features introduced this year. The girls have found many interesting things to do. For the first time in many years Diablo was the hostess at a Triangular Play Day held in November. Girls from Pittsburg and Antioch participated in the program, which fostered closer cooperation and friendship among the girls of the three schools. In March sev- eral girls enjoyed an exciting day at High School Sports' Day at the University of California. ln April twenty girls from Diablo spent a wonderful day at Crockett at the County Play Day. ln May the climax was a picnic for all those who had received letter credit in l937.
