Shakespeare said, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their en- trances and one man in his time plays many parts." There is no single star in this year's review, but each con- tributes a part simply by walking cmd talking upon the Diablo campus. It is a great show playing to a full house. It's what the Bard of Avon would call "Good Theatre." uit? M W WW MMQW ,, t,fi,Z,WW, twwniw 'M ,w"Q'?'l'fM'i'li1"' M' Wt W . Fred Haviland is one of the greatest backstage men we have ever known. He is the man who 'lights the stage,' keeps the 'aisles' clean, and is ready with the 'props' whenever they are needed. In appreciation for his outstanding service, we, the students of Mt. Diablo High School, dedicate the Diablo '56' to our head custodian, Fred Haviland. Principals Message As graduating seniors it is good to reflect about the opportunities you have had, the teachers who have taught you, and the friends you have made, tor graduation will mark a parting of the Way tor most ot you. Some ot you will continue Diablo s head producer, Dr. Ferd Diet, ' I I ' is complet-ns hlsfifth vw at your education, others will enter various fields Diablo as principal. of industry, become homemakers or enter the armed services. The years put into your education have been important in developing the total abilities, habits, attitudes and desires which identity you as a person. What you do in lite depends upon what you are and what you want. What you get from life depends upon how much you want it, how much you are Willing to work and plan and cooperate and use your resources. Whatever comes to you, good or bad, will generally be the result ot your own actions or lack ot action. It is hoped that your training at Diablo High will make you want the best and the most ot lite, and that you are willing to work hard, with tolerance and under- standing, for it. l Vice-Principals Mr Pete Kramer holds the dual position of, L Mrs. Irmgrad Cox is in charge of the other dual poslhon of Boys' Dean and vice-principal.

Diablo Unified School District is Superintendent James W. Dent. This year marks the end of another era at Mt. Diablo High School. For the last time students from the north side of the school district are graduating from the high school which residents of that area have attended tor more than halt a century. Through the years many leaders ot Diablo activities have come from "over the hill" and from Port Chicago. Their presence will be missed, but we know that their younger brothers and sisters will carry on at Pacifica High School the high standards which their predecessors helped to develop at Diablo. Diabloans can always be proud that they first established the tine reputation which our district has tor scholarships, sportsmanship, and citizenship. Iames W.

JUNIOR CLASS Leading the junior extravaganza are Merle Marshall, president, Ieff Moore, vice-president: lo Dee Sobotka, secretary, and Nancy Itanen, representative. Three prompters in the Student Body Government are Steve Bordi, vice-president, Gary Espanosa, head yell leader, and Cathy Kelley, social affairs. Seniors will be seniors but it takes the juniors to "drag" the spirit out of the student body. All of our yell leaders and Devilettes are from the junior class. When the Iunior Assembly was spotlighted as it traveled through town, it featured Merle Marshall, Verle Sidwell, Rod Atnip, Gary Espanosa, Dave Tom- mela, Iohn Peterson and Roger Smith in the first boys' modern dance routine to be seen in this territory. The newest thing in special attraction was "A Peek at Spring," the Iunior Fashion Show in which the boys and girls modeled the new spring fashions for every occasion. "Blue Rendezvous" was the theme tor the Iunior Prom held in April. The crowning of the campus sweetheart took place at the fun-loving Iunior Carnival held on Iune l. The dutiful group of ushers at this daily matinee, commonly called Iunior Service Members, did a commendable job of keeping the crowds going in and out of the right doors. The directors ot this production are Mrs. Rosemary Mulvany, Mrs. Hildred Garrison and Mr. Loyd Moore. ADVISERS MR. LOYD MOORE MRS. HILDRED GARRISON chairman MRS.

AL ALLISON GLENDA COWDEN ROBERTA BURGLUND BRAD HILL Sophomore Rapresontatlvs Secretary Vice-President President SOPHOMORE CLASS Probably the most colorful assembly presented this year was performed by the graduating class of 1958, the Sophomores, with the gay and enthusiastic theme of " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas." The assembly, shown on Novem- ber 22, featured many exceptional acts, among them, the boys in "Black Denim Trousers," Brad Hill, Buddy Barton, Al Allison, and Charley Ionesy Princess Alice Riley dancing on her toes: Iudy Reed prancing to the "Highland Fling", ten girls featured in the "Sailor Boys" chorus: vocal soloist Susie Grubbs, Linda Fisher, and Dick Linfordy several pantomimes including "Let Me Go Lover," "Shhh- Boom," and "Dragon-net," and jolly ole Santa Claus, Iohn Gideon. December 16, class officers Brad Hill, president: Roberta Berglund, vice-presi- dent: Glenda Cowden, secretary, and Al Allison, representativep aided the soph- omores in the presentation of their annual Christmas Formal, the "Snowball Fantasy." Blue glitter and delicate snowballs lighted the Girls' Gym with a gala holiday spirit. Mr. Walter Kelson, Mrs. Betty Nikkel, and Mr. George Armstrong, class advisers, assisted the Sophomores with their money-raising project, a cake sale held on Leap Year Day, February 29. Through the efforts of salesgirls Ionet Pimentel, Iudy Schrock, Tanya McLean, Alice Riley, Darlene Hennessey, Linda Curtis, and Glenda Cowden, approximately twenty dollars was added to the Sophomore treasury. Under the leadership of Al Allison, Welfare Commissioner, forty-five Sopho- more Service members kept order at our brunch stands. This group met once a month in order to solve various school problems. The Sophomore Class was represented in the Clubs Assembly by Iackie La Plante, Cynthia Dickey, and Linda Fisher, a vocal trio, who sang the ever-popular "You, You, You." In the annual Iunior Carnival, the versatile Sophomore barkers attracted the crowds to their game, and again added cash to the class treasury. ADVISERS GEORGE ARMSTRONG MRS. BETTY NIKKEL MR.

The class which will graduate in l95Q, supposedly, had a successful cleanup day in October, and were paid in donuts for the laborious iob. On the social roster, in November members elected Iudy Sands and Mickey Trette to preside over their "kingdom." In this Freshman Fantasy, "Beneath the Sea," they had their traditional dance. An octopus attracted much attention. One ot the highlights of the annual Frosh assembly was Larry Young and his electric guitar, accompanied by lim Wimmer. Larry did a "torchy" job as a singer. He was asked also to entertain for the Iunior Fashion Show which was held in spring. The "Frozen Knee-caps," seventeen Bermuda-clad girls, danced to "Flattop" and boosted the applause meter.

Fall semester editor, Bill Iohnston, and assistant editor, Bob Potter, put seven editions "to bed," including the eight-page Christmas Edition. Spring editor, Gail Mclntyre and assistant editor, Mary Walden, pushed seven more editions into the mold to keep the latest developments before the reading public. Dick Alford managed the football programs, GAIL MCINTYRE Editor spring semester of the Diablo News and Frances Sands the student directories. Where there's a spare dime, there's a chance for publicity, the staff thought, so 51 Academic saw legmen running in and out every period of the day. Press conferences were the rewards for a few top staff members: Stanford, University of California and the University of Washington saw representatives from Diablo telling the story of the "great" '56 show. The News is out today so staff members give it the critical eye. DIABLO '56 MRS. HELEN LUM Director of Student Publications When the curtain rolled down, the statt had caught the picture story of Diablo '56, and was ready to peddle the copies. Sandra Melton, ed- itor, and Ianet Loe, assistant editor, headed the edition with Mrs. Helen Lum as director ot pub- lication. There were times when the statt members as well as adviser, felt that the three balls ot a pawn shop should hang above 51 Academic tor any- time a talent could be pawned and turned into money tor the publication, it was done. Last tall the statt was invited to enter a booth in the Wal- nut Creek Festival on a percentage basis. It was SANDE MELTON Editor of the Diablo '56 accepted readily tor it spelled cash. So the midway rang with Diablo barkers, and Mr. loe Public darted thousands of balloons. Diablo News staff members threw in their time to man the booth with the Diablo '56 members, and tor two days and three nights the money rolled into the till. Carving out the record ot the '56 show took not only individual talents but their cash as well. There was always gas to buy, and the advertis- ing statt members dug deep into their own pockets to help get out the living record of the show. Pictures are the business of these seniors and iuniors who make up the Diablo '56 staff. h .Stag ky Ax wa, l g . ...-.-L... . . . ii.if..a .

Diablo opened the 1955 football season by losing to the ever-strong Alameda Hornets, 45 to 6, in the first of three practice game series. Making a comeback, the Devils crushed the Cardinals of Santa Cruz, 32 to 12. Playing Oakland Tech in the final of the three-game series, Diablo fell under the Bulldogs by a score of 13 to O. MT. DIABLO vs. PITTSBURG. The Red Devils opened league play on their home field, playing host to the Pittsburg Pirates. Both teams scored their only touchdowns late in the third quarter. The game ended in a 6-6 deadlock. MT. DIABLO vs. ACALANES: The Diablo eleven received its first league defeat from the Acalanes Dons in a 13 to 7 struggle. A 98-yard T.D. run, called back because of a Devil offside, nullified a possible victory. In losing the game Diablo gave back to Acalanes the perpetual trophy set up between the schools. MT. DIABLO vs. PLEASANT HILL. Making a comeback from the previous week's loss, Mt. Diablo captured its first league victory, rolling over the down-trodden Pleasant Hill Rams, 34-7. T. DIABLG vs. LAS LOMAS. Although winning the d league game in its total number of first downs received, d the total yards gained, Diablo found itself on the short end of a deceiving score of 18-14 in favor of the Las Lomas Knights. MT. DIABLO vs. ANTIOCH. The Red Pack traveled to Antioch for the final game of the season and were edged out by the Panthers, 19-14. This was the curtain call game for seventeen graduating seniors.

WILLIAMS IO6 "Members of the Diablo Basketball team did a tremendous job due to their great team spirit and their aggressiveness which was the deciding factor in taking second place," Coach Charlie Karp commented. "I can't praise them enough, because they were really great." The Diablo five were predicted to win three out of five of their practice games, but as it turned out, they got away with four from five. Early season predictions placed our quintet in the Leagues fourth spot. They upset all prophecies by grabbing nine victories out of twelve League plays. The losses were to Acalanes once, and Pittsburg twice. The over-all account is thirteen wins out of seventeen games. Some outstanding players are Roy lohnson, who made high-scoring honors and all-County first team, Dick Norenberg, who graduated at mid- term and also earned special recognition from the League: Ted Plumb as center, replacing Dick Norenbergy Dave Stafford making all-County second teamg Ron Loveridge receiving Honorable Mention, and Marv Williams, lerry Walsh, who missed twelve games because of an ankle injury, came back at the end of the season playing hard to make up for lost time. Main players were guards, Roy lohnson, Dave Stafford, Cliff Moresg for- wards, Marv Williams, Ron Loveridge, lerry Walsh, and Ted Plumb, Dick Norenberg at center.

The B's twice tromped over each of the following: Pleasant Hill, Las Lomas, and Pacifica. However, they were defeated by Pittsburg, Antioch, and Acalanes twice each. These sharpshooters played scrappy and very progressive ball, and thus, ended with "a real terrific season," according to Coach Anaclario. Dave Barber pushed his Way up to All-County, second team: Gerry Clough received Honorable Mention, and reliable Al Allison made Honor' ary Captain.
