Built some years ago, at a time when earthquake regula- tions in regard to schools were not in force, this building was now deemed unsafe by the inspectors, and a new building was to be constructed with all steel and concrete through- out, thus providing the stu- dents with a larger, safer, and more beautiful school. bl:?!'ilfg:'!"a5.r I 2 :"55i'f' if 3, "'-31,321 vc'- 653.1 like flgsi' ' -ac. as X? .4565 'T1JgL:I.'- .'

Work of destruction, soon to be Work of construction, had begun. Similar events, however, have hap- pened many times in the history of Taft High. The Conley School, as it used to be called, was a two-room building in South Taft, which boasted an enrollment of ten and a faculty of one, Mrs. Lavilla H. Campbell. When the enrollment reached eighteen in 1912, another teacher, Miss Ianie Michaels, was added to the staff. Because Taft was then small, the took place. An operetta, "H.M. S.Pina- fore," was presented, with Mr. R. H. Scott, present head of the Commercial Department, playing the Captain. Pic- nics of the whole school were held at the San Bmidio Orange Ranchg and a comic opera, "The Chimes of Nor- mandy," was presented in the Sun- shine Theater on three wintry nights. ln 1922 a new athletic field was duly dedicated when the Taft English soc- cer team defeated Bakersfield Scotch part of the Bakersfield High School, team and when later in the Yew the but in 1915 Conley becamea separate Valley track meet was here' That school and was placed on the accred- ited list by the University of California. By 1917 the school had progressed so far as to enter the beautiful new school buildings in North Taft: and on the evening of February 22, 1917, the school was dedicated. ln the early same year the Taft Iunior College was established under the provision of an act of the California legislature. By 1926 the junior college enrollment had increased from nineteen to thirty. In the past year over three hundred have "twenties" many interesting events been enrolled. The early Taft High Buildings, about which the students were so happy, have been only a beginning. As the student body grew, an auditorium with complete stage facilities was added. A science building equipped in every way for advanced scientific study, a domestic science building with an up-to-date cafe- teria, a machine shop, an aviation shop, a gymnasium, and a beautiful music building have taken their respective places on the campus. Now eight new class rooms With a large library and a study hall are being added, and a new dome is to take the place of the old, again giving back to the school its former beauty and dignity. 4 ABOUT THF SCHOOL Top le-it: L, Ritter, Clerk, E.

"Where's Dot?" . . . "Do we have to sit in assigned seats?" . . . "Down in front!" . . . "Quiet, please!" Out of the confusion comes silence cmd attention as another Associated Student Body assembly is called to order. Most of the assembly time this year was given over to a series of well-bal- anced and varied programs, planned and presented by Mr. Ernest Mclnnes, the director of student assemblies. The more serious of these programs included lectures by well-known authorities, concerning foreign affairs, American prob- lems, and scientific industries. One of the most interesting and educational pro- grams of this type was a lecture and demonstration on electricity and its uses in the motion picture and radio industries. The vividly colored, noisy, electrical display with artificial lightning, music played on whirling disks, and metal rings which defied the laws of gravitation was a sight to be long remembered. A number of amateur contests, amusing plays, and singing assemblies, many of which were presented by classes and school organizations, furnished the lighter entertainment for the student body. The noon movies proved to be one of the most popular forms of student body entertainment. Lunches were hastily swallowed, and the auditorium was crowded whenever a motion picture was presented. Sharing attraction honors with the picture shows were the noon dances and the Golden Gloves Boxing Tournaments. These noon-time activities were planned for the enjoyment of the students. Competent officers, advised by Mr. D. T. Williams, and a student body willing to co-operate have combined their efforts to form an efficient government. "Horse racing, the sport of kings, can easily be encroached I upon by lesser individuals, but passing the gavel is a sport restricted entirely to presidents: so, with greater pleasure and less ceremony than ever before, I pass on all the trials and tribulations of a Student Body President to my very competent successor, Gilbert Downs," says Lee Graham, A. S. B. Presi- dent for the first semester, as he hands the gavel to Gilbert Downs, his successor. "As one horse racer to another, I am fully sensible of the obligations which you so qlibly pass along with the gavelg I hope, however, that your proficiency will accompany the responsibilities so that I may administer the Student Body affairs with at least a semblance of your sophistication and aplomb," replies Gilbert. 6 i .

Enthusiasm was seen everywhere as the students climbed into the busses to be taken to Wheeler Hot Springs, Where swimming, dancing, and picnicking were the order of the day.

THE SPORT SPOTLIGHT Pompons streaming viv- idly and bouyantly, ye'l leaders racing vigorously to and fro, spectators rising to their feet in the surge of excitementethus the first game of the season took its place among the year's highlights. The strains, "Taft High, we love you, Taft High . . . lustily sung by the student body, clearly showed the spirit of the stu- dents. "Enthusiasm" was the password in these games, as it was in the club activities with the stu- dents efficiently and zeal- ously carrying out the aims and purposes of each ac- tivity. Along with this en- thusiasm carne co-opera- tion--co-operation among the members of the teams as they ran interference and carried the ball and co- operation among the mem- bers of the clubs as they served on different commit- tees and did their part in makinq their activities suc- cessful. Truly a joyous and progressive Year was 1935- l936 for the students. iv '35 -If -4 1,4 A 14",g'9g'fik ,133 + .a-cg, 5943. A -fifviv' iggffffk QSJGTU ,u - 45 ,. 1 . 4- w. - , ' :Z 'If M' . , . ' .

'f Ia 'hilt' Jilin ll I IJ D C I I S .. , V y, After dropping their opening game to Paso Robles by the narrow margin of one point, the Wildcats returned to home soil and turned in one of their best per- formances of the year, holding the powerful Santa Barbara State Frosh eleven to a score of 6-O. Expecting an easy victory, Santa Barbara was amazed to find their opponents fighting them to a standstill for three quarters, but in the final period they made a drive down the field which Taft was unable to stop. The Wildcats, playing a fine offensive game in their next contest, defeated a strong Fresno State Frosh team 14-O. Big Dick Snyder, Taft fullback, provided a thrill for the fans when he raced 82 yards for the first score. Encountering one of the speediest teams ever to appear in the Martin Memor- ial Stadium, Taft lost the next game 12-O to Loyola, the State Catholic Prep cham- pions. Although fighting valiantly, the Wildcats were unable to halt the ever- forward march of the Southern team or the flying feet of its elusive captain. Following in the wake of Loyola, Cathedral High invaded Taft but was re- pelled, 7-0. The fine kicking of Soares, Cathedral fullback, held the Wildcats in check until a fourth-period drive resulted in a touchdown. ln each of the next three games Taft was defeated, losing to Santa Maria 13-O, San Luis Obispo 12-7, and Occidental Frosh 30-12. ln the final game of the season the Wildcats lost to their traditional rivals and the Valley champions, Bakersfield, 25-O. The Wildcats, snarling and fighting, held their mighty opponents to a single touchdown in the first half, but were unable to stop the power and speed displayed by their foes in the second half. Gilbert Downs, tackle, was the capable captain of the 1935 Wildcat squad, while Bob Loperena was voted the Service Award for his consistently good football in the halfback position. Coach lohnston capably coached the team. WILDCATS-Back row: Lavelle, Morgan, McKain, Grissom, Lynch, Fairbanks, Mack Jones, Orloft, Kommers.

After playing more than three quarters of scoreless football with the powerful Wasco heavyweights, the Bobcats, led by Captain Wagner, made an unhalting drive from their own 12- yard line until they struck "pay dirt." After being badly outplayed during the first half of the game with Loyola, Taft turned seeming defeat into victory by a brilliant counter attack in the third and fourth quarters. Then, breaking the light-heavyweight Atascadero team's record of no defeats and an uncrossed goal line, Taft overcame these former champions, although encountering the finest speed and power found in any of its opponents. With a spotless record behind them the Bobcats faced the crucial test, the County championship game, and won the title for the first time in six years. ln the second quarter a sustained drive of 76 yards, made possible by perfect block- ing, was culminated by the making of the first score by Hogan, Winner of the Service Award. In the next period Taft scored again, with Drake catching a pass on the dead run and sprinting 25 yards to the goal. The Bobcats have lost but one game during the last two years and this season have scored nineteen touchdowns and twelve conversions to their opponents' two touchdowns and one conversion. Their success was due to the will to win, team co-operation, and the help of the coaches. After the Taft-Bakersfield game Referee Lopez informed the coaches that Taft had the finest running, blocking, and play-executing team he had seen in the high school football season of 1935. "Come on, Wagncr!" yells the crowd at the Maricopa game. 28 LEFT: Harold Hogan, winner of the Service BOBCAT SCHEDULE Award' September 20 RIGHTZ Clark Wagner, captain oi Bobcats.

Undaunted by their reverses, the "A" Class improved with each game. Their ability to play a fine brand of basketball was demonstrated when they twice decisively defeated Bakersfield to win the County championship, earning the right to play in the semi-finals for the Valley cham- pionship. With a Valley championship in view the Wildcats faltered and dropped a hard-fought contest to the strong Visalia five, losing by a single point. Iohn Lavelle, dependable guard, was elected captain of the squad. Odell, center, and Murdock, guard, were high scorers for the season. Proving themselves worthy successors to last year's undefeated Bobcats, this season's lightweight cage artists overwhelmed McFarland 30-9 and began a long string of victories broken only by the Santa Barbara Sophomore Class "A" team and the University of California 145-Pounders. The basket-bombing Bobcats easily defeated all "B" Class competition except Bakersfield, whom they barely nosed out 28-26 in their first encounter. In the second contest with the Sandabs, the Bobcats proved themselves real champions by coming back, after trailing l8-10 at the half, to win by a score of 23-20. Ethridge Drake, flashy forward, was elected captain. Other outstanding players were Wagner, Howard Hogan, and Sanders, forwards: Garratt, centerg and Harold Hogan and Cameron, guards. Due to the inexperience of the players, the Kittens were greatly handicapped this year. They showed flashes of potential power, but they met defeat more times than victory and lost the County championship. Although the newer players turned in commendable performances, the work of the two veterans of the squad, Captain Burel McBrien, guard, and Mitchell, forward, was outstanding.

The Taft cinderpaih artists opened the season by enterinq five men in the Lona Beach Relays, where they took a second, two thirds, and a fourth. This was followed by the Paso Robles dual meet, which the Wildcats won 75 576 to 47 U67 the Bobcats, 64lf3 to l2 2,'3g and the Kittens, 44V2 to 32V2. ln the Bakersfield Relays the "A" and "C" Classes finished second, and the "B" Class third: and in the Tulare Relays all three classes finished third. A four-way meet was the next exhibition of the track men. In it Taft totaled 272 points, to 78 273 for Delano, 20 U3 for Tehachapi, and 3 for McFarland. ln the Bakersfield dual meet the Taft trackmen turned in their finest performances of the year, winning 7llf2 to 59lf2 in the "A" division, winning 49lf2 to 45lf2 in the "B," and losing 64 576 to 21 lf6 in the ln this meet six school records were broken, two were tied, and one Valley standard was beaten. Those who consistently broke records this year were Snyder, Orloff, and Dykes in the Class "A" shoieputg Stockman and Lloyd Small in the 120 hiqh hurdles: Snyder in the 220-yard dashg Simons in the football throw: Odell in the hop-step-jump, Forqie, lohnson, Hogan, and Mason in the Class "B" 440-yard relayg Paul, Lester, Rush, and Gall in the Class "C" 440-yard relayg Gall in the 330-yard dashp and Lewis in the pole-vault.

Students participate in athletics for health, and these activities are exhibited each year in a gymnasium show presented on the football field. This year's tennis teams, under Coaches Benerd and Lee, compared favor- ably with any in the Valley. Although defeated by Hanford and Santa Barbara, Taft vanquished Compton and Bakersfield: and in the County tournament Lynch captured the boys' singles crown, while Gervais and Stigall won the boys' dou- bles, and Lopey and Turley won the mixed doubles. Lynch also won the Valley finals. Baseball prospects were good during the past seasong and, although they faltered at times, the Wildcats defeated such teams as Delano, Antelope Valley, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, and Bakersfield. The only weakness lay in the hurling department, which was strengthened by moving Captain Endicott, star centerfielder, to the mound. By defeating Bakersfield, Taft won the County title. A new athletic tradition was begun when a Golden Gloves Boxing Tourna4 ment was held. An unusual amount of fistic talent was displayed, with the follow- ing being awarded golden gloves: Simmons, flyweighty Murray, bantamweight: Drake, featherweighty Wilder, lightweight: Morgan, welterweighty Loperena, mid- dleweight: Willis, light heavyweightp and Snyder, heavyweight. The indoor team, led by Captains Krigbaum and Hall was very successful, winning from practically all opposition. Boys who earn letters in athletics are eligible to become members of the Block "T" Society, an organization which encourages interest in athletics. Block "T" officers for the first semester were Gilbert Downs, president: Tom Kommers, vice- president, and Bob Dykes, secretary-treasurer.

These instructors taught the students the correct form and the fundamental shots of each port and helped them to appreciate and attain skill in these various activities. Bull's-eyes were not accidental for the youthful student archers nor were ringers a matter of chance for those who excelled in horseshoe throwing. A nice dribble down the field, a three-base hit, or a tennis smash executed with perfect timing were the rewards of hard practice and gave a satisfied feeling of achievement to the participant. To keep the girls from becoming too much like Amazons, tap and natural dancing were offered. Those fairy nymphs who went tripping so lightly "over the green" were really students in the natural dancing class. Tangos and Russian folk dances were only a few of the routines that were interpreted by these grace- ful dancers. A few members of the class danced at the Teachers' Institute held in Bakersfield in November, while the whole class gave several numbers on Exhibit Day in April. Those students who preferred the more lively dances were invited to learn to tap. Some clever steps were taught the girls in rhythm dances and sailor routines. These were also presented for the approval of the public on Exhibit Day. By means of the sports and dancing practiced in the physical education periods and in the after-school periods the students were able to build healthy bodies and to become skillful in various recreations which could well be used to fill their leisure time in the years to come. OPPOSITE PAGE-The girls with their feet in the air are limbering up for the morning tap lesson a getting a big kick out of it, too. In the next picture it looks as though lean were going to sprout wings and fly away, but don't e alarmedg it's only the tumbling class giving an exhibition. Below these we find Martha Lee demonstrating one of those fancy smashes that whiz by, leaving ou standing there wondering how that hole got in your racket. Are the girls in the next picture playing Atlas? No! Oh, a basketball team. In the picture next to them you see Miss Bee Edwards, Head of the Girls' Physical Education Department, demonstrating the tricky intricacies of tapping. In the picture at the left in the second row, Miss Gladys Benerd shows her class how to stop a hockey ball. Next we have a candid camera shot of Miss Peggy Sweet, chatting with two girls. Note the gracel That must be from teaching natural dancing. In the picture in the lower left-hand corner you can almost "hear the beat of dancing feet." Beside the tappers we have talented Virginia. Evidently this is one of the dances which is being taught in the natural dancing classes now. Or maybe you prefer a fast basketball game.

'Nl Monthly assemblies of the Girls' League have been a source of pleasure to every girl who attended them. Each of these meetings was started with a quick but thorough discussion of the month's businessp then a short program was pre- sented. A special motif for each assembly made these meetings more enjoyable. The October one was in keeping with Halloween, and Santa Claus himself was present at the Christmas program to give candy to the girls. New officers were presented and installed in February, while amusing skits on etiquette provided the entertainment for March. In April the girls saw a spring fashion show planned by the faculty and girls of the home economics department. The annual girls' Hi Iinx, as hilarious this year as ever before, carried out an excellent "Grand Hotel" theme. Various skits were presented by the high school and junior college girls: but the highlight of the evening was, as usual, the faculty skit. Many different and amusing characters were portrayed by the girls. Hazel jesse as Sherlock Holmes, the house detective, won first prize, after which wel- come refreshments of ice cream and cookies were served. During the week of Halloween the Girls' League sponsored Witches' Week. The students bought tags which admitted them to various noon activities. ln November the officers enjoyed a pleasant trip to the Girls' League conven- tion at Visalia. By mingling with delegates from other San Ioaquin Valley schools and participating in various discussions, the officers brought home many ideas that will be helpful in planning the convention to be held here next year. In March "Whistling in the Dark," a comedy mystery drama, was sponsored. Due to each girl's enthusiasm and salesmanship the affair was a success. This has been a busy year indeed for the Girls' League as its members helped each other to build additions to their treasure houses of personality. "This way, please," say the ushers as they courteously direct the members of the audience to their seats in the auditorium. The ushers are sponsored by the Girls' League.

D E R R I C K With "Building" as its theme the 1936 "Derrick" is presented. lust as the school is building with the idea of the future in mind, so the staff made this book with the idea of putting into permanent form some of your memories of the past year. As the constructors work, carefully laying the foundation and building piece by piece, so the entire staff have worked together, building this book. Only with their whole-hearted co-operation was it possible to carry out the theme. To Mrs. Louise Lambert Stewart, faculty advisory committee chairman, who cheerfully smoothed out the many difficulties encountered: to Miss Alma Stein- inger, adviser of the art staff: to Mr. M. D. Bejach, photography adviser: and to Mr. R. H. Scott, chief accountant, the staff wish to express their sincerest apprecia- tion. The staff also wish to thank Miss lean Pollard and her typing students: Mr. T. H. Ellsworth, of the Graphic Arts Photo Engraving Company: and Mr. F. A. Knapp, of Lederer, Street and Zeus.

To those students who possessed a student card, the papers were issued free, but to the rest of the students, a small fee of five cents was charged. No sooner had the editorial staff completed work on one edition than they began work on another. First came assignment day, and reporters were sent out to bring in all possible stories-the date of the coming school play, the winning of the last ball game, and even the latest gossip. These write-ups were corrected and sent to the linotype after which galley proofreaders were set to work correct- ing. The long strips of printed stories were then cut and fitted into an old paper, known as the dummy. After this the dummy was turned over to the printer, and the latest edition of the "Crusher" was ready to be printed. To George Monson, Ierry La Marsna, Bill Hanawalt, and Mr. Fred Baumgar- ten go the credit for making up the paper, and together with the printer, the credit for building the news articles into a full-fledged newspaper. Since no edition of the "Gusher" could go to press unless there were enough ads to eliminate any financial difficulty, the business staff had im- portant work to do. Ads had to be se- cured regularly, and only by the fine co-operation of the business men of Taft could the bi-monthly publication of the "Gusher" have been possible. Bills for advertisements were made out and sent to the advertisers at the end of each month. On the day the paper was issued, a well-organized circulation crew worked hard, keep- ing an accurate account of how many papers are given out. On special oc- casions extra papers were printed and given to guests visiting the high school and junior college. Much credit should be given to Harlan lohnson and to Bill Baker, the business and ad- vertising managers respectively, who succeeded in making the "Gusher" pay for itself. Through the "Gusher" the school was kept well informed about the social and the athletic activities of the school. Nice spicy scandal was provided the students under the headings of "Ioe lacee," "The Phantom," and "Ye Olde Dirte." The "Book Shelf" and some good editorials were a few of the other write-ups that helped build an interested public for the "Gusher." lf - . .fbi-PD lui' Lauri.: 'lffti' 1' H1 foil-L,"'I . :C- in 1-1GZ!1f4"W 50-11 YA t ,Q-A-.1 - as-Q. --- WT.-N. . 0'3" l B I P Asxnnu IKEA gvmrefwo-Q-ag-ws i., XM TOP lOURNALlSlNlt'LtlIi1 Back low: Pi'-wilt, Porter, Hath- lsinn, Townsenti, Lave, Hall, Haalei, Williaiiis.

Kaufman and Edna Ferber. Mr. Pt. A. Borell, assisted by Miss Mary Owens, directed this and the other plays of the yearg and Miss Alma Steininger was the art director. "The Royal Family," a three-act comedy depicting an eccentric family of peramental Broadway actors, is a difficult play for amateurs to produce. But he actors gave excellent characterizations, and the setting made by the stage- craft class helped to create an atmosphere of confusion and theatrical elegance. "Three-Cornered Moon," written by Gertrude Tonkonogy, was the second three-act play of the year. The cast succeeded in creating a delicate atmosphere of playful nonsense. Such instances as losing the family fortune and planning a double suicide were viewed with an unusual nonchalance. These were all typi- cal attitudes of a family known as the "crazy Rimplegarsf' Among the many one-act plays produced was "War to End War," a radio skit with which Taft High School represented drama in the San Ioaquin Valley for the California Teachers' Association's educational program over station KMI. "Growing Pains," another three-act play, was started as a summer project and then taken over by Alva Gregory, who directed and produced it-a complete student production.

The actors succeeded in keeping the sinister effect of this play through the excellent characterizations of the young novelist and his financee, who are held captive by a gang of "tough mugs." A pair of missing false teeth set the plot for the next three-act play of the sea- son, "Billy," by George Cameron, which was chosen for the Senior Class play and was directed by Miss Mary Owens. Amid applause the curtain falls on the final presentation of the year, "Neigh- bours," which was presented at the Fox Hippodrome Theater. It was with this one-act play by Zona Gale that the dramatics department won the Senior High School One-Act Play Tournament held at the Pasadena Community Playhouse. The competitors in this contest were the winners of preliminary tournaments held in the various sections of California, south of the Bay district. Much credit should be given to the following members of the cast for winning highest honors: Frieda Pierce, Geraldine Lewis, Iirnrnie Crossan, Geraldine Casparis, Dorothy Erickson, Dick Skeen, Hazel Tesse, and Meryle Rogers. An honorary society, The Drama Tournament Players, was organized at the end of the year by this cast. HWHISTLING IN THE DARK" Hilda ...............................................

U s IC A L M o M E N T s White walls of a new music building, thrown into bold relief against the slop- ing brown hills, form the background for colorful snatches of melody from the band, orchestra, and glee clubs. The success of these groups is due largely to Mr. iulius Lang and to Mr. Donald S. lones, their directors. The band, displaying trim new uniforms which received their first "once-over" at the concert held at the Hippodrome Theater, provided stirring accompaniment for football games and for parades in Taft and in Bakersfield. Among the other outstanding events in which the band took part were the Kern County Music Fes- tival at Wasco, the dedication of the Buttonwillow Road, concerts on the U. S. C. campus and at Tupman, and a special broadcast from WGXAI. The orchestra presented specially arranged selections for all of the schocl plays and the operetta and its yearly concert at Tupman. A special ensemble composed of Genevieve Hoffman, lune Rumbaugh, William Steen, Iohn Murray, Robert Preston, Christine Lang, Iulius Land, lr., and Vivian Foster, played for many civic programs. During the illness of Mr. Lang in the last quarter, Mr. E. P. Whitlock substituted as director for the band and the orchestra. The glee clubs, directed by Mr. Donald S. lones and accompanied by Marvel Hopkins and Theodore Walton, presented many programs during 1936. On April 24 the Girls' Glee Club presented a half-hour concert over KFI. During the second semester a freshman chorus was organized and directed by Mr. lones. The combined glee clubs also took part in the Kern County Music Festival. The music season was successfully brought to a close by a premiere presenta- tion by the music and dramatics departments of the collegiate operetta, "Open House," with Mr. Iones as general director.

Informal discussion has been the emphasized type of forensic activity this year. A friendly attitude toward opponents has been maintained, for both sides of every question have been considered. ln this Way a decision is reached With- out the old-time aggressive feeling. Non-decision debates have been a feature of this type of activity. Shafter, representing the Sierra League, and Bakersfield, of the Kern County League, were opponents of Taft in such debates. Much of the preparation for contest work has been done through the regular public-speaking classes, and many programs for school assemblies and for civic events have been prepared and presented. Delbert Boutwell, Lee Graham, and Geraldine Casparis were the student speakers at the Armistice Day celebration of the American Legion. Radio speaking, which is the popular form of speaking today, was also developed in the speech classes. The "mike" was in great de- mand and proved to be a help in speaking before an audience. A playlet was presented by the club members for general assembly, and the Forensic Club has also provided speakers for advertising various school activities. ln forensic contests Lee Graham was high-point man. He Won the Kern County Oratorical Championship and took second place in the Valley contest. In the extemporaneous contests he Won first place in Kern County, second place in the San Ioaquin Valley, second place in the State contest at the University of Redlands, and entered the national contest at Oklahoma City. "Congratulations, Lee," says Coach Mclnnes, as he pre- sentsthe Kern County Oratorical Cham- pionship cup to Lee Graham. 52 TOP PICTURE FORENSIC SOCIETY: Back row: Grahani, Crossan, Bell.

Not content with driving the Indians away from their happy hunt- ing grounds, these rapacious palefaces have to muscle in on the ancient Indian craft of metal-work, too. Chiselers! A lecture on "line". Wipe those grins off your faces, children. Iust wait until you try to draw something that doesn't look like a cross between a scarecrow and a gargoyle. You won't feel like laughing then. N. B.-Look at Barbara's classic profile. A demonstration in a first-aid class? Nope, it's the real thing. Frances fell over her foot and had to join the ranks of the invalids on crutches that fairly swarmed over the campus this year. The lady doing such an efficient job of bandaging is Miss Weersing, the school nurse. And this, boys and girls, is the place where the office training classes spend hours and hours in making the play programs, special bulletins, and other an- nouncements which you so blithely tear up and throw away not two seconds after your teacher hands them to you. Tskl Tsk! Aren't you ashamed and astonished at your lack of appreciation? "Ready, typeI" and these reckless typists are off, shooting for the world's record, no doubt. They don't look very perky, though. Maybe Miss Pollard should have given them a pep talk before they started. Or maybe she did, and that is what is wrong. This is the sewing class, where the girls spend half of their time in sewing seams and then spend the other half in ripping them out again. Ho hum! The futility of lifel Ala Mae is merely trying to keep up with the signs of the times. With the modern girls going in for surveying, engineering, and aviation, the boys decided something had to be done about it. And this is the result. They have already learned to boil water without scorching it. Next, they are going to try something really hard-like making toast. Then not one of them will ever need to say, "lf you could only cook! " The library always wears such an air of studious endeavor that most of our lads and lassies ordinarily get brain fag by just looking through the door at the rows and rows of books.

T U D E N T C C U N C l L The Student Council is made up of the officers of the Associated Student Body. It was created for the purpose of formulating laws and plans for the students as a whole. At regular meetings the council members discuss the programs and plans which have been submitted to them. After each suggestion has been care- fully considered, it is put into as finished a form as possible. Then it is ready to be presented to the students themselves. During the first semester of the In turning back the pages of history school year 1935-36 it was my privi- lege to serve the Taft Iunior College as president of the Associated Student Body. As I review the events taking place during those few months, the success of the Student Council be- comes apparent. An energetic broad- minded council plus a co-operative student body is a combination difficult to surpass. Since the Student Council is merely a part of the Student Body, its success or failure depends upon the attitude of the students who choose its mem- bers from their ranks. For their whole- hearted interest and co-operation, I sincerely thank the Student Body and council. They made my term in office a very enjoyable one. -Ed Bostick. we find that it has always been the goal of the junior colleges of Cali- fornia to promote a feeling of good will and co-operation among the dif- ferent schools, both in scholarship and on the athletic field. Taft Iunior College has always taken an enthusi- astic part in the activities of the junior colleges of its region. This year one hundred students and twenty-eight faculty members went as delegates to the ninth annual conven- tion of the Central California Iunior College Association, which was held at Visalia on March 28. I sincerely thank the administra- tion, the Student Body, and the Stu- dent Council for the interest which made this successful year possible. -Ierry Williams. The Student Body holds semi-monthly business meetings. At these times the president introduces to the assembled students all the plans and programs which have been formulated in the council sessions. Open-floor discussion is held upon each one, and every debatable point is settled as nearly as may be done. Finally, the motion is put to a vote, to be carried or lost. The business of the junior college assembly is finished. 2 .QBLJCFIJSY , 'tt n- , Si i 1 3 l 1 E 4 5 '1 i I 1101 vw-'qc-:gp . 'SJ-ld 1-. ' v- 5' "Puf- rr, -1- -..Ud,.,-, ,Q - 1, ,gent-.-ve TNF?

S. in the Little Theatre today!" Seven years ago, in 1929, the Associated Women Student Body was organ- ized with Miss Edna L. Dessery as adviser. Every year has seen the gradual growth of this group into one of the most active organizations in the junior college. Under President lanet Macfarlane's capable leadership, the A. W. S. began the fall semester with a welcoming party for the freshman girls. The next event was the annual Mother and Daughter Supper, on December l4. Besides the president, other officers for the first semester were Edith Richard, vice-presi- denty Virginia Hill, secretaryg and Dorothy Moynier, treasurer. For the second semester Elaine Segelhorst was elected president: Edith Richard, vice-presidentg Myrl Petersen, secretary, and Thelma Elder, treasurer. On March 20 these officers and Miss Edna Dessery attended the annual State convention of the Associated Women Students in Sacramento. The Associated Men Students form an integral part of the student govern- ment of the school. lt was in 1930 that the men of the junior college first felt the need of an organized body, and the A. M. S. came into being. The first semes- ter of this year saw Merlin Lones elected as president. Ett Evans was elected vice-president, Ed Allen was secretary-treasurer: and Bob Marshall was busi- ness manager. During the year the men planned many events-a steak-bake and a Wiener roast among others-but other activities interfered: so the most important function of the A. M. S. was a dance given on March 7. Gordon Graham, a popular second-year student, was elected president for the second semester. Other officers for this semester were lake Garlow, vice- presidentg lack Macdonald, secretary-treasurer, and George Kennedy, busi- ness manager. A. M. S. OFFICERS-Graham, Kennedy, Marshall, Evans. A.

Many stu- dents enjoyed taking part in the extra-curricular activities and at the same time contributed a great deal to the entire student body. In an attempt to publish a yearbook that truly reflects the life of the junior college, the 1936 "Derrick" Staff chose a book styled to the spirit of informal junior college life, in the hope that it would please both students and faculty and recall to memory in later years the outstanding events of the year 1936. The members :of the staff express their most sincere appreciation to Mrs. Louise Lambert Stewart, faculty adviser, for her advice and leadership. They are also deeply grateful to Miss Alma Steininger, art adviser, and to Mr. Maurice Bejach, photography adviser. To the various members of the student body and the faculty who gave their kind assistance, the staff extend their thanks. Taft Iunior College drama students and stage craft classes were honored this spring by being selected to ex- hibit their work at the junior college conference at Visalia. The play "Crime in the Park" was presented in a clever stage setting. Directed by Mr. Raleigh A. Borell, lim Patterson and Iames Stewart played the leads. Iunior college students in plays were Lovitt, Stewart, Gregory, Patterson, McMillan, Baker, Hanawalt, Lutton, Lynch, Mundinq, Guess, Doss, Ed- wards, Starbuck, and Greer. Last fall music lovers of the Taft Iunior College met with Mr. Donald S. Iones, director, and formed the Mixed Chorus.

On March 27 the chorus participated in the Kern County Music Festival at Wasco. In closing the year they com- bined with the high school in present- ing the operetta, "Open House." The news of the school appeared in the semi-monthly editions of the campus newspaper, the "Gusher." Junior college staff members were Adell Iohnson, I. C. Editor: Bill I-Ianawalt, I. C. Sports Editor: Gerald Diefenderfer, Assistant I. C. Sports Editor: and Bill Talmadge, Paul Fierro, Loraine Paulsen, Lois Foster, Evelyn Ballagh, Goldine Shurley, and Necia Wright, reporters.

However, it is all very artistic. Yes, indeed. Step, brush, tap, step. Oh, no. That is for beginners, and these fair co-eds have progressed far beyond that. On with the dance!

Oh, speedball's a wonderful game, Not fit for the blind, halt, or lame: After chasing that ball O'er the field in the fall We'll never again feel the same. Advanced shorthand. The girls listen to English, make pothooks, and then try to make them into English again. "What's this word? lt looks like 'problem,' but then again it might be 'purpose,' or 'jump,' or even 'bookkeeping' I guess I was right the first time-it's a problem!" No, no, Maudie, this isn't the boys' cooking class. This is chemistry, where they make weird combinations with heathenish smells. Oh, science, what horrors are committed in thy name! Home run!

Wackeen scored in the first five minutes, instituting a tradition which followed until the final game. In administering a sound defeat to the Porterville Pirates, a Conference foe, all of the Maroon and Whites' latent power was displayed. However, disaster overtook the Cougars when they trekked north to engage the powerful Cali- fornia Frosh team. Although the Cougars scored early in the game, the Bear Yearlings proved too strong and tallied by virtue of several intercepted Cougar passes. Following this setback, the Cougars, playing air-tight defensive ball, vanquished a strong Long Beach eleven and then meied out a terrific drubbing to the Beedley Tigers, with Tate and Stone starring. Routing another league foe, the Cougars steam-rollered the Visalia Club, with most of the scores resulting from passes, Bellochi and Van Horn starring. Next, Taft grabbed off a decision against the powerful Compton team, scoring twice in the initial period and again in the closing minutes to cinch the game. ln their next tussle, which was featured by Dunn's punting, the Maroon and Whites averaged a touchdown per stanza to take the measure of a scrappy Bulldog squad from Santa Maria. Rounding off the season, the Cougars entered their traditional "Big Game" as favorites to defeat the Bakersfield Renegades, but Taft had to be content with a tie. Four Cougars were named on the All-Valley: Wackeen, end: Tate, half- backp Dunn, quarterbackg and Bostick, center. COUGAR FoorBALL SQUAD: Back Row-Pierre, swim, L.

N T I-I E M A P L E C C U R T Handicapped this year by the fact that they started the season with only two veterans, Captain Bob Snyder and Ierry Williams, the Taft Iunior College hoop- sters finished in third place in the Central California Conference, winning seven league games and losing three. Taft opened the season against a strong cadet team from Black-Foxe Mili- tary Academy, coming out on the short end of the score. The Cougars were swamped in the next four practice games by Glendale, Compton, Ventura, and the University of California's 145-Pounders. Then, showing the undaunted spirit and fight which is characteristic of all Cougars, the Taft quintet defeated Reedley and Coalinga junior colleges in the first two league games of the season. Although decidedly improved, the Cougars lost the following three hard- fought games to Visalia, Black-Foxe, and Porterville. In the next game the Cougars emerged overwhelmingly victorious over their traditional rival, Bakers- field. Then the Maroon and White cagers took Coalinga with ease. With each Cougar distinguishing himself by his close guarding, Taft played an almost perfect defensive game to upset the leading team in the Conference, the Visalia Tartars, and to earn second position in the leaguey but in the followf ing game with Porterville the Cougars lost their stride and dropped out of the running for the Central California title. Reedley Iunior College, stronger than expected, was next defeated by only a two-point margin, and the season ended with another victory for Taft over the Bakersfield Renegades. Coach Kienholz deserves a great deal of credit for developing a fine team from players, the majority of whom had never played together before. While the work of all of the players was commendable, Clarence Hutchinson, with 80 points, and Ett Evans, with 72 points, were high-point men for the season. Bob Snyder, 1936 basketball captain, proudly displays the Central California Iunior College Association basketball trophy which was won by the 1935 Cougar team and accepted this year on behalf of the junior college student body by Bob, one of the two returning mem- bers of the team. lncidentally, the figure topping the cup was the award won by Bob for his individual high-point playing as a for- ward. 18 ' dev.

The Cougars opened the season with an entry in the mile relay at the Long Beach Relays, placing third. They then engaged the Bakersfield Renegades in a dual meet, chalking up l00 points to the Renegades' 31. Next the Maroon and Whites tangled with the powerful Fresno State Frosh team, whose field strength proved the deciding factor, and Taft was defeated 79 to 54. Thirty points in advance of their nearest rivals, the Taft baton-passers stole the show for the third consecutive year at the Bakersfield Relays, turning back the best teams in the Valley and making new records in both the half and the two-mile relays. Then the Cougars swept the Tulare Relays, and Gibson walked off with the trophy for high-point man of the meet. Next, in a five-way trackfest the Cougars rolled up 91 points and then in a quadrangular meet turned in a score of 86 points to overwhelm completely the visiting squads. Accounting for 60 points, a record Conference score, Taft won the Central California title and hung up new records in the 440-yard dash and 220 low hurdles. New school records rnade by the Cougars during the season include a 220 mark of 22.2 and a 440 time of 50.9 by Captain Sauret, a time of l5.9 in the high hurdles by Iames, a javelin toss of l67'2" and a run of 24.7 in the low hurdles by Denning, a discus twirl of l26'l0V2" by Gibson, a relay time of 1:32 in the 880 by Sauret, Denning, lames, and Gibson, and a time of 3:31 in the mile relay by Baker, Van Horn, Sauret, and Gibson.
