I have just read one of the lin-
est tributes to our boys. This trib-
ute was said by an Army Officer.
and I think it is worth repeating:
"Our kids, American boys, are
just kind of automatically wonder-
ful. just through our own way of
ij life they get something that makes
them superior. They don't have to
CHARLES CROOKE Pfmfftai be indoctrinated and have it ham-
mered in for months or years. The
fighter pilot flies with his heart.
The thing that makes him superi-
or in combat is inside him all the time. Our kids have it, and I think it is some-
thing they get naturally, something they get just by growing up in this country.
I think that the thing that makes them better fighters is an individual sense of
responsibility to what they are doing and a capacity to think for themselves."
What a tribute to American Youth. What a tribute to America itself.
Naturally we all do those things best that we like to do. However, I be--
lieve that all of our boys and girls in the armed forces today are not doing
the things they would like to be doing today, but because they have "an indi-
vidual sense of responsibility to what they are doing and a capacity to think
for themselves", they are doing such a grand piece of work for us that our
hearts swell with pride, and our voices become husky in appreciaton for what
they are doing.
Many of our boys are in the armed forces today. Many of the members
of this graduating class will be in the service ere long. Our prayer for them
today is that they be returned to us safely: and may we who are just mem-
bers of the home front also realize "our individual sense of responsibility"

In the past years the staffs of the Blue and Gray have made
the theme of their annuals Bt the current interest.
This year the students of the Mountain View Union High
School have been brought more closely together, and have cen-
tered their thoughts in the 'school itself. Because we have taken
pride and interest in our school, the theme of this l944 year book
is "Life at Mountain View High."
Rather than dedicate this book to one person, or one group of
people, we have chosen to dedicate our annual to something much
greater, Our Men in Service. -
Since December 7, 1941, manystudents have left school, jobs,
homes and friends for an unknown fate in battle. It is for you
that they light, and to them we dedicate this book.
"lt is for you. Through endless nights
Of mud and rain he stubbornly-
Plods on, head down, back bent beneath
His pack-on towards the shell-streaked sky
And maddening road where truth and liest
And love and hate and life and death
All meet in war, red war! l
And hates, and so he lights. To all
His love is true. Guard well your heart
And keep the faith. He fights I

The Iunior class started the year with a successful dance, "Wintertime"
given to raise money for the Iunior-Senior Prom. Life-size painted skiers, and
snowflakes carried out the theme as decorations.
A good showing was made this year by the Iunior boys on the varsity
teams. Quite a few of them have earned their major block M's. -
After a period of two years, the traditonal Iunior Carnival was again held
at night, with dancing in the gym and concessions on the football field. The
usual laughter and gaiety was characteristic of the spirit of the Carnival.
One could hardly recognize the gym as dancers swayed to the enchanting
strains of music at the Iunior-Senior Prom. Iune 2 was the eventful night
of one of the loveliest Proms held.
Members in C. S. F. are Rose Fucile, Virginia Propst, Ioy Campbell and
The class has been under the able guidance of Mr. Carter and Mr. Doane.
Officers of the class for both semesters, respectively, are President, Dick
Iones: Vice President, Tom Golden: Ray Mathiesg Council Representative,
lack Young, Mary Magius: Secretary, Barbara Grubb, Ioy Campbell: Treas-
urer, Lenore Cornell, Ina Mae Andersong Sergeant at Arms, Ierry Ham-
mond, Louis Beck.
The Sophomores-those "ln-betweensu, neither "green" as the Frosh nor
quite as "Mighty" as the Iuniors-came through the year with much to their
The first event of the year was the annual Freshman Reception, held
October 1. Celebrating the union of the allied countries, the Sophomores ad-
opted the motif, "United Nations." Flags of the various countries were
hung in the gym, and a program of folk dances carried out the general theme.

readjusting program was an accomplished success. Although the semester was a very busy
one, the group found time to suggest and expand new ideas. Financially this was the most
outstanding semester in recent years.
Holding the wheel as president for the second semester, Tony Ianovich did an excellent
job and helped make this a line year, The spring council handled the regular business and
was principally interested in school improvements, including a recreational center.

FALL SEMESTER: The student council under the leadership of President Bill Ielavich
had to determine school policies for the coming year, handle the increased number of ath-
letic contests and night functions, along with the usual duties handled by the governing body.
SPRING SEMESTER: The second semester was headed by President Tony Ianovich.
His administration proved to be very active, and the business involving school activities was
well carried out. This group also presented new ideas to improve the school.
Under the presidency of Margaret Sharp the girls had
a very active year. Their first project was helping to
welcome the new freshmen on the opening day of school.
The first of the many interesting entertainments at league
meetings consisted of a skit by senior girls impersonating
the freshman girls. Other good programs were talks on
Christmas ideas by Miss Cossman, Miss Munk, and Miss
Heller: and a baseball game between the girls and the
women faculty, greatly assisted by the men, The year's
biggest functions were the Mothers' Tea, the Red Cross
"Swing Shift Dance", and the dance given in conjunction
with the Boys' League. One very interesting program was
given by Mrs. Cheeseman. She gave the girls many help-
ful hints in regard to clothes, poise, and manner ot
speech. She also demonstrated how to stand correctly before a microphone while presentl
a speech or while singing. She then sang a few selections.
The busy year closed with the traditional farewell program for seniors.
The Boys' League is an organization to which all the
boys in the school belong. Its purpose is to develop the
boys into a strong coalition for good sportsmanship and
school spirit. With the aid of Mr. Carter, able sponsor,
and Program Chairman Gerald Rosen, various outside
speakers and athletes were obtained. These programs
provided fine and educational entertainment for the boys.
e of the outstanding programs were the athletic tour-
naments, the first of which was boxing. This program
was preceded by Harry Maloney, who is Director of
Minor Sports at Stanford University. The matches were
refereed by Vic Lindskog, great Stanford athlete. An-
other program that was enjoyed was the talk given by
Lt. lim Crawford on combat flying in Africa. The League

graver. ln the spring, field trips were taken.
For the first time in the history of Mountain View Union
High School, the Blue and Gray staff was organized as a
class, and the students received credit. There were many
outstanding workers on the staff whose efforts have helped
make this book possible at this unusual time. Special men-
tion should be made of Gordon Martin in photography, and
the art work by Sylvester Diaz, Betty Gilbert, and Miriam
Azoubel. Gloria Lambert was chosen assistant editor and

The War Bond Committee. under the spon
sorship of the California Scholarship Federa
tion, was organized in 1942. Since then an en
viable record has been maintained in stimulat
ing the sale of stamps and bonds. The Treas
ury Minute Man Flag has been flying contin
ually since it was obtained in April, 1943.
This year the committee composed of Dorothy
Ann Ruess, Katherine Daley, and Christina
Fucile has been counciled by Mrs. Deene L.
Downey. Miss Edna Wilbur and Mr. Edward Loggi, gilligglfm
Blalock have assisted in the publicity and sta-f
tistical departments, respectively. The high goal of 525,000 was set for this school year. Up
to March 21, 517,595.65 worth of stamps and bonds had been sold. To express their senti-
ments, the pupils purchased 53,000 worth of bonds and stamps on December 7. The spirit
displayed by the students in this particular drive and in the weekly sales is indicative of
the patriotism and sincere desire of the boys and girls of this school to aid the war effort.

COACH N. THORNTON
, .sf1 .
In preparation for future years, thirty-five freshman and sophomores eagerly turned out
to learn the fundamentals and gain experience in football. Under the coaching of Nort
Thornton, athletic instructor, the young gridders were molded into one of the strongest
light-weight teams in the valley.
The "Eaglets" went through the pigskin campaign of five games with four victories and
one scoreless deadlock. They were not scored upon during the entire season. The Frosh-
Sophs showed strong offensive power, racking up sixty-six points against their opponents,
while being very strong defensively.
Coach Nort Thornton gave all the boys numerous opportunities to participate in the
games. ln that way the gridders gained the necessary experience in rough-and-tumble inter-
school competition, that will enable them to become varsity material in future years.
Ray Mathias, versatile quarterback, was outstanding as signal caller, runner, and team
leader. The entire squad showed promising ability, and fine sportsmanship, and should be
a definite asset to the strong Eagle grid teams of the future.

COACH C. HEWES
Using the now famed "T" formation for the first time, the Mountain View Eagles tied
for the SCVAL championship by winning two encounters, tying one, and losing one.
The opening of the grid season found the Eagles with a new coach, Cal Hewes, and a
squad with only a few returning lettermen, the rest of the squad being green. However, as
the weeks progressed the gridders showed definite improvement and when the final week
rolled around, the Eagles were leading the league with two victories and a tie, But in the
final game the high flying Eagles were upset 18-12 by Los Gatos in a hectic game which was
climaxed by flying fists and broken goal posts.
Qui' inexperienced team lost its first practice game to South City, 7-2, but came back the
following week to battle Palo Alto to a scoreless deadlock. Then Menlo C. handed the
Eagles a 13-7 defeat.
The Eagles showed surprising strength ag ainst Campbell in the first league game of the
season, but after having two touchdowns called back in the initial quarter, the Eagles could
gain only a 7-7 deadlock. Mountain View then defeated Santa Clara, 7-O, in a night tilt be-
fore a large crowd. With the title nearer in sight, the Eagles beat their neighboring rivals,
Fremont, 2-0, in a tough game, but the following week the Eagles were beaten by Los Gatos
in the season's crucial game.
The San lose News placed three Eagles on their All-Valley Eleven, Eagle gridders mak-
ing the All-Star Team were Bill Ielavich, center: Ray Morlini, end: and Rod Richardson,

At the first of the year, prospects for a potential title in the thirties seemed bright, with
returning veterans and numerous newcomers on the squad: but as the season progressed, the
young Eagles found tough competition, and wound up the season by winning half of their
eight league encounters,
Coach Thornton did his best to develop a consistantly smooth-functioning team. When
the lightweights were on the beam, they were hard to beat.
Ray Mathias, forward, was high scorer for the team, while Vic Rodrigo, guard, stood out
defensively, Uthers rounding out the more frequent starting combination included Ioe Gar-
cia, center: George Geraci, forward: Ioe Marvin, guard. The second team consisted of Ivan

Decreasing interest in track along with the absence of returning strength on the
cinder path made it a difficult task to field a strong team. With transportation
hardships permitting few meets, all eyes were focused on the all-important Valley
Meet as the Blue and Gray went to press. Cal Hewes was the coach.
Under the guidance of Cal Hewes, the 1944 tennis team hopes to ride the road
to Victory and uphold Mountain View's standing for developing fine net teams.
Veterans returning from last year's squad included Mathias, Escano, Geraci,
and Freeborn. At press time no matches have been played,
