As they practiced their graduation program, thinking
over the dramatized evolution of California's schools, many
a thoughtful A-9 thanked his lucky star that he belonged
to the class of 1950-instead of 1850.

VARIATION ON A THEME
The A-9 graduation theme, TOO years of Education
in California , covered three areas-past, present, and
future. Of these they had read of the first and imagined the
third, but the second they had an excellent opportunity to
experience at first hand.
The teachers and administrators who met them daily-
sometimes seriously, often smiling-were a far cry from the
legendary figures of the little red schoolhouse which had
faded into history-the lchabod Cranes, the stern masters,
the ruler-wielders, belonged to the early days when Cali-
fornia had first emerged from a school-less wilderness,
whose wealthy families had sent their sons to Hawaii or
even around Cape Horn to Europe for an education. They
belonged to the era when occasional tutors were lured to
the west for a hazardous rendezvous with uncertainty.
Instead of a harrowing study of a few texts, students of
today were aware of hundreds of books at their command,
and more fields of study than their counterparts of 1850
ever dreamed of. They knew the pride of accomplishment
in shops equipped with tools unknown even to the best
scientists a hundred years ago. They felt the results of a
health program completely non-existent even half a
century back, and a pleasure in music and arts for which
early Californians could scarcely find a name.
Some things they shared in common with the youth of
1850. They sang some of the songs left as a heritage by
Spanish provincials, and hopped and skipped to the
square-dance calls with as much vigor and enthusiasm as
their pioneer predecessors. They loved their state with the

It was a drowsy winter day of January, 1970, when I
awoke from my slumber with my head feeling like a two
hundred ton brick. Being a neurotic I decided to have a
visit with my special psychiatrist, Fraiilein Annette Weiss.
Because I was in such a hurry, I hailed a Leon Katz Yellow
Cab, which was driven by Andy Hazelle.
As I entered the reception room of my psychiatrist, I
was greeted by the receptionist, Norman Siegel. While I
was being ushered into Fraulein Weiss's ottice, to my
amazement whom should I see rushing out, but the mad
musician, Peter Vogler, with scraps of sheet music flying
from his fBillyl Davis hat! After inviting me to recline on
the couch, Faulein Weiss then proceeded with her fPeggyl
My mind slowly wandered back to the previous night
and the gala ball in honor of the Count and Countess
Berman Knee Mickey Gartieldl of lKennyl Kuhlman Kounty.
As I entered this dazzling affair, I remembered my wraps
being taken by the two head butlers, John Allen and Don
Houk. While the orchestra played the Uanetl Schroeder
Concerto, under the direction of Selwyn Rose, I made a
mad dash to the newly invented IBIIU Clack phone to call
Susan Bichachi, editor of the Daily Darrow, to inform her
that her gallant reporter, fme, of coursej was covering this
social event of the year.
I got back to the hall in time to witness the can-can
dance done by Beverly Silver and Dorothy Duke, which
was presented by Diane Plotkin's Can-O-Matt. Following
this was Rod Edwards, the famous singing star of North
Atlantic, accompanied by Kenny Johnson at the piano.
Afterwards various other acts were presented by Faye
Aratani's Holeless Do-Nut Shop, which gives you more
dough for your money, Robert Lewis's Reducing Salon,
Steambath KC-Peralolinel Murray, Rock's Novelty Shop,
Row I-Linda Crickmore, Janice Yamamoto, Dora Silk, Betty Todd, Susan

Galanter, Carl Hunn, Charles Lockard, Walter Flood, Leslie Pollack, Lloyd

Sharon Mack's Peroxide Bottling Company, Big Bob's
Watch Manufacturing Corporation, and Norma Peterson's
Voice Studio. Wild Animal Trainer Margie Drake began
to clap loudly, and everyone else joined in, including her
favorite wild animal, Carl Hunn.
There were many celebrities present, and among them
was Marion Megrdichian, famous little bad kid of the
stage, Sheila Ann Miller Margo, noted tap dancer,
Marcia Gilbert, Spanish quiz kid, and Vernon Landry,
radio's Sam Spade. The highlight of the program was an
original play, Forever Chuckie, penned by Nancy Baker
and Shirley Bennion. Seated in the audience was the
worId's greatest Olympic orange squeezer, Moe Bloom,
who seemed to have eyes only tor Shirley. The drama was
sponsored by the Silk-Wolf Sweater Shoppe, located on
No-land Johnson Boulevard.
Refreshments were served by Ted Matthews and Fred
Rosenthal, from the Schwartz Catering Service and Seltzer-
cola was passed around by dispensers Bobbi Perll and Pat
Motfet. In a second there was a shrill scream and the
lights went off. I sensed someone near me, and I knew
then that my pocket was being picked. When the lights
went on, I realized my story of 259's football triumph was
gone, and I noticed Jesse Miranda on the roof above
crawling into his Polin helicopter. Dashing to the home of
my two mechanics, Roger Summers and Joe Miller, I picked
up my Kelley rocket ship, manufactured by the Mad Irish-
man, and took after Miranda up the .loyce Motty Trail to
the fMarilyn1 Bluh Planet. I parked my rocket ship at
