It is now time for us, the summer class of '44, to
say goodby. We cannot really say goodby because
there are many things that we will always remem-
ber about our high school days. We can never
forget the friends We've made, many of whom will
always remain in our memories. We can never
forget the many people who helped us through,
and taught us during the last three years. To these
people we offer our effincere thanks and gratitude.
Many of us will enter the armed forces immedi-
ately. Cthers of us will go on to college or to
work. But no matter where we go or what We do,
we will do our best to bring honor to North Holly-
wood High School and to the class of summer 7151.

CLASS WI LLS
by GARTH RoUsE
Four out of five league championships and one runner-
up gave North Hollywood its most successful Spring sports
season. Championships in tennis, gymnastics, "A' track,
and baseball turned the trick.
REGAIN ED CROWN
North Hollywood regained the Tennis Crown after hav-
ing lost it to Verdu o last year After losing the opening
matches to Fairfax, ie tennis men came right back to take
Harvard and the Valley teams by beating Van Nuys, 5-2,
Verdugo, 7-0, Canoga Park, 6-1, and San F emando, 7-0.
Al Cimaglia played first singles and Callahan, F einer,
Lieber, and Maley played second to fifth singles, in that
order. The first doubles team consisted of Dave Lorenz and
Parker, the second, of Lee White and Willard.
FIRST IN VALLEY
Following right on the heels of the tennis champion-
ship, the gym team came up with another championship,
whipping Valley teams with such scores as 90-30 against
Van Nuys, 103-17 against Verdugo, and 9114-2814 against
SIXTH IN CITY
The gym team topped this very successful season with a
win in the Valley finals and sixth place in city. Cameron
and Heuer made the points for the Huskies. Cameron,
the only Huskie ever to place first in the city, won in
tumbling. Jack Heuer also did something that has never
been done before by placing second in the long horse.
Cameron, proving himself to be more than a one-event
man, came up with fifth in the same event. Others who
helped make a strong team for North Hollywood were:
Cook, Munster, Courtemanche, Pierce, Rumer, Monzello,
Laffoon, Warren, Sparrow, Tozer, Patton, and Day.
With tennis and gymnastics fading away, Huskie fans
tumed their attention to track to find we had a very strong
team. Led by Captain jeff Lawson, mighty 440 man, this
team swept the league, piling up such scores as 78-38
against Van Nuys, 94.9 over Verdugo, 7534-283i against
Canoga, and 73-41 over San Fernando.
Consistent point men were Bill Crandall, jeff Lawson,
Bill Munster, Frank Smith, jack Doole , Dick Roemer, Bill
Tenny, Ben Derden, Walt Mikesell, Chuck Satterfield, Bill
Beggs, Jerry Milner, Boyce jacques, Keith Limberg, Don
Shinkle, Bill Felts, Frank Comelson, Bill Pagones, Ed
Nettles, Garth Rouse, and the relay team of Derden, Tenny,
Jones, and Lawson.
BREAKS SCHOOL RECORD
Climaxing a very successful season by breaking the
school record for the 440, Jeff Lawson went to the city
finals and, with the handicap of having the last lane, ran
the distance in 50.7, a full second under the old school
record. Bill Munster, not to be outdone, tied for third in
the pole vault. The North Hollywood relay team took
second behind Van Nuys. These events totalled 1115 points,
enough for sixth place in the city.
- n VALLEY MEET CHAMPIONS
The track team from North Hollywood High completed
a successful season by taking second place in the league
dual meet standings, and winning the league meet cham-
pionship. From the beginning of the season they started out
on a victory spree by lashing out wins over Van Nuys,
Verdugo Hills, and Canoga Park. But then San F emando
came to town in the form of a very strong track squad and
barely nosed out the Huskies, then we got revenge on San
Fernando by taking the league meet title. San Femando
was their closest opponent but they were about 13 points
behind the Huskies.
At the city finals Walter Catts, Don Patton, and Chalmer
MacWilliams qualified for the meet but the scoring was
done all by Catts, who recorded eight digits for the Huskies
and ut them in eighth spot.
Bdlow is each event and the boys who competed in each:
100-Walter Catts, Don Harold.
220-Walter Catts, Don Harold.
660-Reggie Duflin, john Lakin, jim Luntzel.

Shot put-Chalmer MacWilliams, Mike Doty, Earl
THIRD CONSECUTIVE CHAMPIONSHIP
The Baseball Team came through to give North Holly-
wood its fourth championship this spring by winning 7
out of 8 games. After splitting with Van Nuys they slapped
the rest of the teams in the league with 6 straight wins.
Verdugo, Canoga and Femando were the victims in the
last three double-headers. The climax of the season came
in the first Canoga game when in the last half of the seventh
and with three runs 'needed for a win, the boys came
through with just that, to win 5-4, and the following week
they cinched thefchampionship with a double win over
San Fernando, giving NH the Baseball Championship for
the third straight year. The credit for this must be given to
Ca tain Bill Crandall, next year's Captain Bill Langford,
Bog Boyd, Frank Darien, Tucker Thompson, Benny
Lorino, Dick Allen, Paul Snyder, Dick Linde, Dick Feiner,
Herman Falk, Garth Rouse, and Jack Van Nostrand. The
success of the team must also be credited to Bill Meier-
stein, First Base Coach. These boys really came through
with the chips down on several occasions to give you
SPLENDID IOB DONE BY COACHES
While we are giving credit we must not forget the fel-
lows who worked many trying hours moulding and form-
ing these championship teams: Coach Elliot, who brou ht
back to NH the Tennis Crown, with a cham ionsgip
team, and helped the Tracksters to Crowns, Coacll Berry,
who coached the Gymnastists to the Valley Title, and
Coach Smith, who mentored the Huskie Horsehiders to
their third consecutive Crown.

We're leaving North Hollywood
Though stay on we wish we could
Our hearts will linger with you for ever more.
Our colors of blue and gray
Bring thoughts of our high school days
And loyal class of Summer '44,
Through the years we,ll remember all the friendships we,ve made
Truth and vision and high endeavor, words that cannot fade.
So now we bid farewell,
Our hearts with pride will swell,
When we recall our school, North Hollywood.

Qjracluafion of 66156 JS 214
On the athletic field dedicated to former NH principal,
Mr. Claude Sandifur, two hundred and eighty graduates
will assemble to receive their diplomas,
A boy or girl may face many occasions in his or her
life which may be destined to remain long in the memory,
but at the time of graduation, there is a particular senti-
mental note. Parents gather to see their sons and daughters
ready to accept the responsibility of adulthood.
This graduation is very special, indeed. Our country
is involved in a conflict from which none of the graduates
can be excluded. Boys and girls are takin positions in
the world for which their parents did not gan . . . boys
become men, fighting heroes, girls become women, cour-
ageous defenders of all that is good.
That is how the inscription reads on the diplomas . . .
"the groundwork for your life has been laid, it is your turn
to use it wisely."
Two hundred and eighty students of the graduating
class of Summer '44 gathered together to display their
senior sweaters. With a roar of applause, members of the
eleventh and twelfth grades expressed approval of the
slate gray-royal blue combination. The sweaters are in the
same colors as the colors that the North Hollywood High
School has adopted.
Once a year, tradition marks the celebration of the
Seniors' pre-announcement of graduation with class day. In
a fitting manner, the Seniors make the announcement by
dis laying the sweaters which have come to symbolize the
high rank of a Senior A in the High School.
