ganfa gatlnzta Revisited While catching a few winks the othe-r day, I was awakened by the buzlz of the TV phone. I tufr-ned the knob, and there at the other end was-! Well, I'l-l l-et you guess. He's tall, dark, and handls-ome, and ay world famous musician., of course you know, it's'Rod Duncan. He exlplained that he had just returned from a world tour, and since some twenty years- had ep-assed, he though-t it was albout time to pay a little visit to Santa Barbara. He wondered if I would show him the town. Oh, I was delighted, and said I would meet him at the Art Museum. I caught the very next b-us, and in the driver's seat waiting to take o-utr fare was good old Johrn I-Ilumphreys. We sa.i-d Hello, and, as I went to sit down, I saw six of my old school friends: Nancy Larrabee, David Begg, Alan Jones, Eu- gene Pedeers-on, Su-s-an Small, and Vicky Erranova. I no more than got seated when Richard Lopez got aboard. We talked Va few minutes, and then I got off the bus to see Rod. There he was, looking as good as ever, with a flock of girls around him. Let me see, there were Roberta Copfp-ack, Nancy Tollow, Sharon Bi-ggam, Judy Schooler, and Arleen Terres. We all cha-ttered together afbount old times, anld then Rod and I went into the Museum to see the mod- ern paintings by El-aine Noble, Dorothy Ball, and Rose Marie Mendoza. Rod's balby toe was bothering him a-gain, so we looked in the telephone directory and found some old -friendls listed as dlootors: Dr. James Elsing, Dr. Tony Tirrell, Dr. Robert French, Dr. Gary Seyle, and Dr. Chris We-igmtan. Well, he ended up going to Dr. Tirfrell. Oufr next s-top was a movie. It had been such a lon-g ti-me since R-od had seen a movie that he forgot to bring his threeadimensional glasses, so he had to borrow so-me. We were thrilled to see on the screen Lynette Buchanan, JoAnn Dalton, Dickie Heron and Walter Clapp. Rod asked how much progress t-hey had made on the new college at Goleta, a-nd I suggested that we go out and see. So we went and were cer- tainly impres-sed with the beauty of the campus, the splendid build-ings, and the colorful sig-ht of the students passing to and from class. We calil- ed on our old schoolmates Gill Williamson, now professor of Stellarol-ogy, and Floyd Ross, Di.s- ney professor of Industrial Arts. We saw Raullfy Jaramillo out on the field getting his team in shape for the Rose Bowl. Erik Nordli, the Pro- vost, was in Washington attend-ing a top edu- cators con-ference. There was stil-l time left for a dip in the ocean, and so we hurried to the beach. I called Rod's attention first of all to the tower so that he would see Bert Tritschler and Eddie Cordero, healthy and sun-tann-ed from their work as lrife- guard-s. We saw two friends, Ra-l-ph Paulin and Bob Richards, supervising a group of boys from the Y who were playing volleyball. They gave us news about many of our friends from SIBJHRS. Rutth Voskuyl was a writer and au-thority on social. problems. Joan Newto-n was writing script f.or several top r-adio programs. Marry Strate was making a sucess on TV. Roseanne Campilio was serving a second term in Congress. For dinner we went to a fine, well-fpatronized restaurant on the beach. We were surprised and pleased to find that Judy Rezzonico and Beverly Wyrick were the proprietors. Maeny of the o-lid crowd came in to dine and chat. We were es- pecially glad to see M-ary Lee and Clarita Romero, both me-m.bers of the Board of S'u'pe.rvisors. 'Soon we had to lea-ve, as Rod didtn't want to mi-ss his- ship. A-t the airport Rod in't1rod.uced me to his pil-ot, Jim Furman, who -told us many in- teresting stories afbout his trips to the moon arnd to other planets in the universe. It was now ship time, so Rod and Jim climbed into their beautiful 1972 rocket-propelled space ship and were off. Kristin McCaffery JUNIOR HIGH MEMORIES Those jolly days at Junior High, How quickly they have speeded byg I often think of the morning rush, The tardy bell that caused us to hush, The gong that sounded fire drill, When we'd leave classes with a thrill. Assemblies, toog I enjoyed them all, And smiling friends I passed in the hall. Report cards were another story, They made some glad, others sorry. Elections and contests filled many a day, Junior High, Oh, days of work and play. Ruth Voskuyl.

gxtfzacts 610:44 die Diaful of Glafzita fzomefw, Octolzefz I956 October 25, 1956 Today while I was down town I met my old friend, John Mullins, and we started to talk of former days at SBJHS. He suggested that we drive up to the Blue Onion, so we got into his 1956 Superjet, fuchsia Merc and headed there. A number of our friends had already gathered, including Connie Fragosa, Ramona Soto, and Ophelia Montoya. They were talking about the Homecoming Football game which is taking place tomorrow night. They said that nearly all the class of '53 would be there, so John and I decided to- go, too. October 26, 1956 Tonight John and Ifleft his car in Dennis Ro- mero's parking lot. While we were walking from there to the stadium we saw Jack Cloer, Sammy Torres, and Don Wright pretending to jump the fence. As we came up to the ticket window we saw Felix Rubalcava, Carey Poindexter, Ella Pry- or, and Priscilla Maclean buying programs from Dick Heron. We bought our tickets from Walter Sexton, and hurried in the gate because they were starting to broadcast the line-up. We heard: This is Martin Franco, your sports announcer, announcing .tonight's starting eleven. For Santa Barbara are'Ends Bob Cromer and Richard Valen- cia, Guards Norman fthe bombl Nakaji and Billy Villa, Tackles Johnny Escalera and Abie Perez, and at Center George C Bubb1es l Eyre. Playing in the backfield will be the Halfbacks John Reese and Michael Rojo, Robert Benbrook, Fullback, and Quarterback Eddie Greenberg. We struggled through the crowd and John spied two seats near Lorraine Morelli and Barbara Lardizabal, but by the time we had worked our way up the bl e a c h e r s Betsy Smartt and Alice Price had ,taken them. Then Iusaw Dianne Saru- watari, Donald Kerr, and Ben Wright buying cokes from Grace Casale who was trying to make them pay 15c per coke! We finally found some seats next to Marilyn Clark, Dwayne Maxwell, Norma Hunskor, and Gene Paris who were carrying on a lively conversation about who the Homecoming Queen would be. Suddenly everyone began to cheer. It was for Quarterback Eddie Greenberg who threw a 101, yard touchdown pass to End Bob Cromer. After the cheeringuhad died down, I saw Ross Munoz and Donald'Johnson carrying out Raymond Kob- ler, who fainted from shock. The score was 76-6, their favor, at the tend of the first half. Suddenly the lights dimmed. Everyone was waiting for the halftime activities directed by Nicky Cavaletto. The last thing on the program was the pre- sentation of the Homecoming Queen. While the band played softly, Norman Vincent introduced the Queen-Donna Hellenga. What a doll! Her ladies in waiting were Roberta Miller, Edna Moreno, Alicia Tonnar, Carmen Puentes, and Irene Zandona. After the half time activities, John and I walked to the field and talked to the water-boys, Eugene Solis, Bob Richard, and Doug Verner. Instead of going back to our seats We decided to go in the cheering section, which was quite full. A-s we walked in, Clyde Lane, Sally Cuel'ar, Joe Sanchez, and Helen Robinson called us. Then I saw Thelma Crossland, Cruz Munoz, Annie Sanchez, and Eddie Castro rooting for our team, which was ready to play again. Taking Bob Cromer's place Was Mike Willson. Wow! What a player! Now we would see some action. Coach Alphonso Diaz was eating his cap' and staring blindly into space. The team, now including Richard Baker, Joe Leon, C'ifford Leyna, Richard Lopez, and Clarence Middleton, star end, was going full speed. .After the game fscore 176-76, our favor of coursel We walked back to thecar. Zoom! There went Herman Palma chirping out of the parking lot. With its twin pipes the car could be heard for blocks. After about twenty-five of us had piled into four cars we cruised the main drag, stopping at Pete Capovilla'S restaurant. Don't think we didn't give the waitresses Joanne Fernandez and Jackie Fernandez plenty of trouble! As we drove home after a happy evening we couldn't help thinking of the many other happy times our crowd from SBJHS had had together. W' Q Pg D Al' 4' I -24 .13 ,.-. ,QLQW 2 ' 2 it I-Q,., , af..
