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-
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.
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.

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
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.
