Talented Senior A's Sparkle on Class Day One hundred and twenty-six mighty Senior A's marched onto the N.H. auditorium stage on November 15, after receiving their chocolate brown sweaters, thus climaxing Class Day by honoring B-12's and A-11's in a special as- sembly. Having, at last, the opportunity to show just what a talented bunch this class of winter '45 is, the seniors proved to be the masters of the situation by presenting one of the most entertaining Class Day programs N. H. has yet wit- nessed. This year's Class Song, composed by Marjorie Cassels, was a beautiful tribute to the school and was pre- sented by the seniors from the stage, led by Bill Cameron. Special honors go to all the performers who participated in the program. Gil Hodges, Senior A Class President, started the program by introducing an "alumnis," Walter Catts, who "recalled" the days when he was a Senior in the old, long forgotten Class of Winter '-45. Walter "remembered" certain incidents that had seemed important in his Senior year, thus giving a novel twist to the introduction of the entertainers. Comedy was provided by: the Sunshine Boys Cjack Smal- ley and Earnest Rudolphj with their slapstick comedyg Maury Orr, the female Bob Hopeg and Wanda Lee Gaudin and Pat Nathan, singing a well-received satirical song en- titled "If No One Ever Marries Us." jerry Antes did a fast tap dance followed by Herbert Davies, a fine baritone, who sang "Over the Billowy Sea." While in the singing depart- ment credit should go to Lelia Myers who with jean Morgan sang "Smarty, Smarty" and later vocalized with Don Dunlop on the current favorite, "Trolley Song." Recognition also goes to Elsie O'Connor and Marjorie Cassels who played a beautiful duet on the piano and also to Mrs. Salle and Miss Estrop for their kind guidance and help with the program. This year's Class Day was both interesting and entertain- ing and will be long remembered as one of the highlights in the school life of the Mighty Senior Class of Winter '45. CLASS SONG Mariorie Cassels We're the class of winter forty-five, And we strive to do our best with Truth, vision, high endeavor, ever as our guide. These dear halls of memory, we must leave them now But in our hearts we'll remember all The friendships we've made. We're leaving you North Hollywood, From your portals we must go. So now we say goodbye to you And to our school, North Hollywood. Three Seniors Receive Ephebian Honor ,f Mary Hoch Robin Smith The Seniors who have had the honor of being chosen as members of the Ephebian Society this semester are: Douglas Brown, Mary Hoch, and Robin Smith. Membership to the Ephebian Society is one of the greatest honors conferred on a graduate of a Los Angeles City high school. Pupils are elected by pupils and faculty from Senior A classes of all city high schools in theiratio of one for every 40 graduates. Ephebians are chosen on standards of leader- ship, character, and scholarship, qualities that make them capable of taking on definite civic responsibilities for service to their city, which is the keynote of the Ephebian Society.

After taking the first two games from Van Nuys and San Fernando with scores of 6-0 and 13-12, the Huskies came out second best against Canoga Park, 9-6, a safety and an extra point providing the margin of victory for the Hunters. Noteworthy in the hard fought and closely contested games was the fact that there were the two teams in the mat- ter of total yards gained, 181 for Canoga Park and 180 for North Hollywood. The Huskies after a week's rest caught fire and, with their reverses working like a charm, really scorched the remaining teams, Verdugo Hills, 52-0, and Van Nuys and San Fernando to the tune of 14-0 and 26-6, respectively. Held together by a sextet of tip-top players, Chuck Fray- chinead, Bill Pagones, Garth Rouse, Bill Webb, Ed Nettles, and Giles Allison, the team displayed the fight and teamwork shown by many topflight teams. Each one of these boys was an acting captain during the season. Garth Rouse was elected captain for the year. Bees Also Snag Second Spot Following a championship year the Bees could only rate a second place in the Valley this year after being bumped by Verdugo and Van Nuys and held to a tie by Van Nuys in the season opener. A series of bad breaks kept the Pups from being tied for the league banner. The first game saw the Bees held to a scoreless tie by Van Nuys. They were kept from scoring by several penalties within the opponent 15 yard line. San Fernando was taken in the second game 6-0. In their next win over Canoga, 7-0, they lost the services of Bill Cam- eron for one game. This was quite a blow for after the first game they had lost two stellar first string players in jack Crosby and Fred Wachter. The Verdugo game really cli- maxed things when a runback of a kickoff in the waning mo- ments of the game downed the Pups 12-7. After this came the 14-0 loss at the hands of the Van Nuys Pups. They braced up and struck the winning column by taking San Fernando in the league finale, 6-2. The key men of the Pups were Frank Darien, acting captain and signal caller, Don Warburton, who was the thorn in the opposing teams' side at the right end spot and was chosen captain, Ron Diggins and Mike Doty at the same 'spots on the other end of the line. Leaving Lettermen When a class graduates ithusually takes with it athletes who have made a name for themselves in the field of sport, and the class of '45 is by no means an exception. In this small but active group are eight lettermen each a specialist in his own sport. Adieus and best wishes for the future career of each '45 athlete. Walter Catts, while running Bee track for Bingville in his Senior B term, set two new North Hollywood records. ln the 220 he broke a 14 year old standard, and in the most points acquired by one man in a season bracket, Walt sur- passed the record when he had over 90 counters on his season slate. Walter gave North Hollywood an eighth place in the all city track meet by virtue of his two second place wins in the 100 and 220 dashes. He also was a Bee letterman in football, performing at the half back spot. Lennert Chabre finished his high school career with a line record while playing guard on the team that placed second in the league. All year Lennert's brilliant defpnsive play was one of the features that kept the Huskie A's one of the lowest scored on teams in the city. "A three-year letterman in basketball and an excellent hoopman" is Gil Hodges. As a lightweight cager in the tenth grade, Gil practically tore up the hardwood with his excel- lent offensive play. In his first varsity year Gil operated be- hind Tommy Linn and often surpassed this shifty forward's play. In his last season Gil fairly ripped the opposing team's baskets apart as he was one of the highest scoring forwards in the league and Huskie high point man for '44-'45. Gil has an added distinction as he is President of this winter graduating class. William Archibald La Bossiere, jr., otherwise known as Bill Cameron, or more athletically as the "Master of the Mats," is one of the finest athletes in his class, of which he was president when a Senior Bee. Mighty Cameron was the first North Hollywood student ever to win three first places in the valley gym finals, the first Huskie gymnast to win first place in a city meet and also the annual A.A.U. meet. While doing these feats, he surpassed any previous "points made" record, tabulating over 100 digets during the sched- ule. His talents do not stop there as he won Bee letters in track and football, being an excellent quarterback on Coach Elliott's second place lightweight team. Keith Limberg, noted North Hollywood Student body prexy, achieved athletic fame last track season as he out- sprinted Jacques of North Hollywood and Wills of Van Nuys, the two favorites, to win the Valley final mile run hands down. Ed Nettles, varsity letterman in track and football, played the end berth last fall and won second spot in the Valley track finals while leaping a good 20 feet in the ozone forbroad jump honors. The most improved gridman of the season, he played tip-top, heads-up football and for that reason he earned a position on the All-Valley Football Team. High- lights of his grid games were in both tussles with Van Nuys, where in each tilt he snagged "6-point passes" from full- back Rouse. In one encounter it was the winning talley. Recognized by many as the best center in the San Fernando Valley last season was Senior A, Bill Webb. Bill backed up that line in pro-like manner and was an all-around excellent snapper-back. Webb made second team All-Valley under Hinkey of Canogakwhom Billtoutplayed in the Canoga- Huskie fray. ,V 1' X l Varsity Basketball Squad with Coach Smith and Dave Goldsberry .GZ Poxhtfef 410, GIRLS' SPORTS G. A. A. Sets New Record Striving for fine sportsmanship in the season of fall sports, more members turned out for G.A.A. than in any previous year. Speedball, the beginning sport of the season, found the Senior B's undefeated. Captained by Lorraine Huntley, they cinched the cup by winning a fast and close match from the B-10 team, which dominated the Speedball squad with 68 participants, led by Erlaine Hovden. Betty Fetterly and Gerry Wade captained the A-11's and B-11's respectively. The A-12's were not represented. Tennis doubles championship was taken by Peggy Speights and joie Vieille of the llth grade. Peggy was last year's singles champion but failed to regain the honor when she was defeated by Martha Landon who in turn lost to Louise Hickingbotham, present holder of the singles cham- pionship. Hockey, headed by ,Shirley Alexander, was the last fall sport to be played. The Senior A's were captained by Louise Hickingbotham. Bev Whitaker led the lower twelfth grade. A-11's and B-11's chose Pat Stafford and Pat De Rubertis, respectively, while Margaret Koester and Helen O'Connor headed the A-10's and B-10's. Through the efforts of Mrs. Berg, sponsor, and the other physical education teachers, Mrs. johnson and Miss Harvey, with the cooperation of Pat Munster, President, and her ofhcers, G.A.A.'s fall season was enthusiastic and successful, climaxed by the G.A.A. banquet and installation of new officers.

FAREWELL Farewells are always difiicult, and, the more they come from the heart, the harder they are to put into words. We, the winter class of '45, lind it far from easy to say goodby to the high school where for three years we have worked and played, where we had fun and sometimes difficulties, but, most of all, where we have made so many friends and received so much help and instruction from the faculty.To all' our teachers and friends we say, "goodby and thanks." We are going out into the world with the sincere hope that we will make you as proud of the winter class of '45 as we are of you and of North Hollywood High School. .
