We, the members of the staff, take great pride in presenting The Lance, the
'l95'l yearbook of Napa High School. The theme of the yearbook is "The Knights
of the Round Table" for the evident reason that we, the students of Napa High
School, take as our emblem "Knights," Consequently our lance pays tribute to
those brave men who lived and died in the cause of chivalry so that, In the eyes
of their ladies fair, love would always shine.
The honor of becoming a knight was bestowed upon a young man with
great ceremony after he had first served as a page and a squire. Before he was
knlghted he confessed his sins and fasted. The night before the ceremony he
kept watch over his armor as part of the solemn ritual in which he achieved his
greatest ambition-becoming a knight. There were many orders of knights, some
of which stlll remain. Each order had their own insignia or emblem. Some of
the orders of knighthood still in evidence are the Order of the Garter, Knights
Templars, Knights of Columbus, and Knights of Saint John.
The opening division page of The lance depicts the knights entering a castle
over the moat, an important factor in the defense of the castle. lt could almost
be said that at times the moat ran, not with water, but rather with the blood of
slain warriors. After the moat had been crossed by the invaders there were many
more hardships to face before there was victory for either side. There were
always brave knights of courageous heart to be met at the point of the sword.
Nothing could stop these men, for fighting and battle were in their blood. The
moat was but one.of the defenses of the castle.
There was an outside wall which was defended by archers. After the outer
wall and the moat, there was the inner wall of the castle. This inner wall led
you into the castle where the majority of the man-to-man combats took place.
Even after the inner wall had been conquered, the castle had not been com-
pletely lost to the invaders, for there were defenses throughout the whole castle.
The keep was the most protected spot inside the group of fortified buildings.
Entering the keep or the donion as it was also called was the last step in captur-
ing the castle. '
The following division page shows the knights gathered about the famous
Round Table, the table devised by King Arthur of Britain so that there might be
no quarrels about the rank and to enable the king to sit among them, as a man
among equals. The Round Table was a famous table in the legends of King
Arthur. It was supposed to have been created by the magician, Merlin. Accord-
ing to the legend, the table was made of marble, but could be folded up magic-
ally and carried in a coat pocket. The Round Table was supposed to be in
Camelot, which some identify with Caerleon-on-Usk, Wales. Camelot was tradi-
tionally Arthur's court during the 500's when he is represented to have been the
ruler of England. The stories of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table
played an important part in the literature of medieval chivalry. Many later
writers retold the romantic tales.
The next division page depicts a ioust. Jousting was the favorite sport of
knights in the Middle Ages, such as is baseball or football today. Strange as it
may seem, this bloody sport was also the favorite among ladies fair. A ioust
was either fought until one of the knights was struck off of his horse, or until
death-depending upon the choice of the challenger. Mounted on spirited horses,
the knights rushed together, and each tried to drive his spear through the other.
Such contests took place when one knight felt that another had hurt his honor.
Similar matches, or iousts, were held as sports events. ln these, each knight
used a wooden lance, instead of a spear, and tried to knock his opponent from
his horse. Great crowds from all walks of life, down to the serf, watched the
iousting from seats in the arena.
The final division page, which precedes the pages of snapshots, depicts two
iesters. Each wealthy landowner in the Middle Ages had at least one such court
fool at his disposal. These buffoons, serving as entertainers at meals and gather-
ings, usually accompanied their masters wherever they went. .lesters were not
free men, but, rather, serfs of the lord.
We have accomplished much In the months 'that
have passed so quickly. Each of you has done your
share of the hard work that is so necessary for suc-
cess. It has been a busy year in which the faculty,
secretaries, custodians, students, and parents have
worked together to maintain a democratic program of
This edition of The Lance represents a co-opera-
tive enterprise, reflecting the spirit of our school. lt
is with this spirit of teamwork that we look head, with
faith in the future, with confidence in our school, and
with assurance in ourselves.

We students owe a deep debt of gratitude to the members of
the faculty who have patiently guided us throughout the past
year. Although they have at some time or another borne the
brunt of our hostility, they seem to have survived courageously
under the trying ordeal. The tenth graders especially realize the
many efforts the members of the faculty have rendered for their
Now the time has come to bid farewell to our Alma Mater.
For some of us it is a parting of only a few months, while for
others it is the last time they will sit in a classroom of the blue and
white. Whatever the case may be, however, it is with grateful
hearts that they will always remember the faculty of Napa High
It is the counselor's taslc to supervise any change in program
which the students may wish to make. It is also the counselor to
whom the student- comes when he or she has on roblem in
which guidance is needed.
For this reason u counselor needs to have a deep under-
standing of teen-agers. We feel that this year's counselors un-
questionably exhibit ihese necessqry qualifications, and we
would like to congratulate Mr. Hildebrant, Mr. Hanson, Miss May-
field, Mrs. Boman and Mrs. Schaaf.
We are very proud of our counselors and the excellent work
which they have done this year.

Under the careful supervision of the spring officers this term's student council
has been one of the most productive in Napa High's history. Those elected to
student body offices were Glenn Du Bose, president: Ben Adan, vice president,
Beverly Whitney, secretary, Carol Adamo, treasurer, Ron Avanzino, director of
recreation, Peggy Morgan, director of publications, Jinny Fountaine, yell leader,
and her assistants, Emogene Patten and Angela Brovelli.
These students were responsible for many maior innovations during their
terms, paying most attention to the traditional annual celebration of "County
Fair Week," formerly called "Circus Week." Under the guidance of Glenn Du
Bose this proiect was a huge success.
We feel that the student body officers and student council deserve high
praise for their fine work during this spring's term.

The 1950 football season saw Napa's Knights run up a 3-2-1 win and loss
record which gave them third place in the Middle Four league.
Head coach John Hattala, who was ably assisted by former Cal star Forrest
Klein, molded a fine team out of a bunch of green rookies during the training
period and opened the season with a bang by drubbing the Benicia Ramblers
44-0 in a practice game.
They opened league play with a iarring win over Franklin of Stockton, 28-0,
with Duane Hudson scoring two of the four Napa touchdowns and les Haug doing
outstanding work in the line.
One point kept the Knights out of the loss column in the next game with Ben
Franklin of Valleio as Al Vollmer booted three conversions to give Napa the slim
27-26 victory. After scoring three first-half touchdowns, the Knights dropped off
the pace to nearly lose, due to the loss of Ben Adan, who suffered a broken arm
Stockton High rallied in the last half when Doug Hauser intercepted a lateral
in the Napa backfield and scooted 90 yards to tie the score 6-6. Napa had
counted earlier on Tom Henry's 53-yard dash.
Ever-powerful Valleio handed the Knights their first defeat, 26-13, due to
their swivel-hipped halfback Williams, who ran wild in this game which was
played at Napa.
Then, in the last game of the season, the Vikings from Edison of Stockton
rolled easily over Napa, 21-7.
The Annual Lions Club Football Banquet was held at the close of the season
to honor the boys who had done such a fine iob on the team. Norm Uram was
voted the Outstanding Back of the Year, and Dennis Martin received the Most
Valuable Linesman Award.
Speaker at the banquet was popular Joe Verducci, head football mentor at
U. S. F.

After startlng out strongly, the Napa Knlghts' varslty basketball squad fell
off the pace toward the end of the season and ended up wlth a lust below
average 3-4 record ln Mlddle Four League play.
The start ot the season Indlcated that the Knlghts were on thelr way to blg
thlngs as they won three aut of four games. St. Vlncents of Petaluma, Sonoma,
and Franklln of Vallelo tumbled before the Knlghts' attack, but the Callstoga
Wlldcats put the sklds under Napa and started them on thelr way down, 37-33.
Franklln of Vallelo took advantage of thls and gat revenge by trounclng Napa,
46-39. Joe Jaeger paced hls Napa teammates wlth eleven polnts. Stockton also
cllmbed on the vlctory band-wagon and downed the Knlghts, 47-40, In Stockton's
tlny gym. The small slze of thls bulldlng hampered the Knlghts and helped to
The Callstoga Wlldcats, who had started all thls grlef for head coach Bob
Martln, entertained the Knlghts at Callstoga and dumped them agaln, 39-32,
whlle John Adamo led the Knlghts wlth nlne polnts.
Franklln of Stockton helped the Knlghts contlnue thelr loslng ways by hand-
Ing them a stlnglng 35-26 defeat, but Napa ralsed themselves out at the depths
of despolr by flnally wlnnlng a game, 35-29, over the Vallelo Braves.
Then, In the last and most excltlng game of the season, the Knlghts edged
Ecllson of Stockton, 34-33, by vlrtue of Ron Boan's free throw ln the last ten
seconds of play.

Napa's "B" squad's season was iust the opposite of that of their varsity
brothers. Coach Bev Estes' men dropped three of their first four outings which
made things look black.
Sonoma, Ben Franklin of Valleio, and Calistoga rolled over the Bees who
had won their first game, 46-17, over St. Vincents of Petaluma.
But then, with Tom Henry and Jim Duff leading the way, Napa started to
roll and dumped Ben Franklin, 45-33. Stockton slowed them down momentarily
by handing them a 25-19 defeat, but from there on in, the season was all Napa's.
Calistoga was dumped, and dumped hard, by the high scoring Bees, 47-21,
with Tom Henry netting fourteen points for game honors.
Next on the Knight Bees' chopping block was Franklin of Stockton whom
Napa easily defeated, 33-23. Henry and Duff combined forces to lead Napa
with fourteen points each.
With full steam up, they plowed over Vallejo, 32-25, but Edison nearly
stopped their drive in the last game of the season. The Bees had to go all out to
win, 45-42. Center Walt Milliman paced the Knights with his numerous tip-ins.
This long string of wins indicates what we can look forward to next year,
for all the first string squad will still be with us to fill the shoes of varsity squad
members, all of whom will graduate. Jim Duff and Walter Milliman provided
the height while the sharpshooting eye was furnished by Tom Henry. Handy
ball handlers, who could also tank shots when the chances came, were Eldon
Hosick, Russell Jenkins, Dick Coffey, Clyde Tolman, Larry Bailey, and others.
Bee mentor, Bev Estes, did a fine iob with his group of boys, and the watch-
word is now, "Next season, look outl"

Napa's diamondrnen, defending champions of the Middle Four League, had
another very successful season despite the loss of most of their veteran players.
The only veterans that returned this year were Joe Jaeger and Don Nelson,
who were both on last year's varsity.
Duane Hudson, a powerful hitter, took over the catching duties for Coach
John Hattala's team. He received the slants of Joe Jaeger, converted first sacker
who took over the pitching duties vacated by Joe Whited, who was lost to a
larger team, the United States Navy. At the initial sack was fancy fielding Gordon
Thomas, who came up from the B squad. At the keystone sack was another
refugee from the B's, Tom Henry. His double play partner at shortstop was
Deramus Tallent. At the "hot corner" was another slick fielder, Jim Duff. Patrol-
ling the outfield were Fred Negri, Larry Wiley, and Don Nelson. They took over
left, center, and right fields, respectively.
The B squad also had a good season under the tutelage of Coach Wayne
Yoakum. Many fine players have been groomed to take over the varsity posi-
tions vacated due to graduation.
Next year, however, the varsity squad will not be cleaned out as it was last
year, for most of this season's squad are ninth graders.
Competition proved to be tough in the Middle Four League, but the Knights
made it through all right to maintain the prestige of Napa High.

Even though they were hampered by a lack of depth, the Napa Knights'
track team rolled up a good season on the local and out-of-town ovals. Intermit-
tent rain also hampered training, so the Knights did not have the advantage of
full workout time to aid them in their early meets with Vallejo, Tamalpais, and
Coach Bob Reams' cindermen had good material, but were lacking enough
of it to make a really good showing.
In the A division dashes, big Jack la Rue was a standout while Norman
Uram and Ray Bray led in the B division. Although many competed in the C's,
the leader was Russ Jenkins.
A welcome addition to the team was Les Giovanini, who excelled in shot-
putting. Although this was his first year out for the team, he caught on fast and
looked very good toward the end of the season.
Norm Uram, the all around athlete, also shinned at high iumping and in the
relays with Dale Broyles and Ray Bray.
In meets with North Boy League teams like Tamalpais, Petaluma, and San
Rafael, the Knights were accompanied by the Napa Indians' track team.
New starting blocks were purchased this year to eliminate digging holes in
the track and to speed up the initial starts.
Good attendance was noted for all the home meets, five in number, which
gave everybody a chance to see our fine team in action.
