MR. E. E. WOOD
MESSAGE GF 1942
ln my message of last year l suggested that if in either Germany or the
Soviet Union a call went forth for one million young men to volunteer for
certain death for their ideals, many more than that would come forward.
l questioned whether we could predict that of the youth of our country.
Since then, it has been fully proved of the Germans and the Russians.
And now we are in the mighty struggle which will determine whether our
ideals of democracy are to survive. Will we prove to have an equal devo-
tion to our beliefs-so much higher and nobler than those of the mistaken
millions of Europe? That is the question that you young Americans must
ask yourselves. l believe that you will prove yourselves worthy, but
even that is not enough. You must go on and change the world so that
today's conditions can not again be produced.
My generation is leaving the world in the midst of ruin: we have lost
our noble ideas and aspirations. The god of money and of pleasure has
replaced the god of service and of love. The whole foundation of human
life must be changed or the ruin that is now upon us will continue and
grow worse. Our economic system must change from one of individual
greed to one of cooperation for the public good. The narrow patriotism
of race must be broadened to the true spirit of Christianity in the brother-
hood of man. Unless these changes are made in our conception of life,
all the blood and treasure we are now sacrificing will be in vain.
To your generation we commit these problems. May you of the Class
of l942 find happiness and success in the struggle for these ideals.

f s'j'Executive Committee
Probably the most powerful governing body at Tamalpais is the Executive
Committe, which discusses school problems and authorizes school activities
and functions. The Committee is composed of the student body officers, Girls'
Association president, Self-government presidents, and class representatives.
Members of the fall committee were student body officers: President Bob
Aregger, Vice-president Ralph Setterholm, Secretary Susie Richards,
Treasurer Dave Ehrenfelt, and Yell-leader Peggy Honeywell, Girls' Association
president, Marion Rudolph, Self-government presidents, lack Poott and Patty
Rivers, Class representatives, Bob Von Staden, Marilyn Dux, Wanda Tones,
Robert Conn, Doug Murphy, Richard Dowling, Dale Newbold, and Bill Butts,
and Editor of the NEWS, Dave Kirby.
The committee for the spring semester is pictured above.
The Student Congress, the law-making body of Tamalpais, met at intervals
during the past year and completed a successful program. lt was created in
1939 by Student Body President Art Baird to bring Tam's constitution up to
date, and did the work so well that it has become a permanent institution.
Headed by Presidents Bob Aregger in the fall and George Roberts in the
spring, the Congress is composed of student officials, class officers, club
presidents, and activity leaders.
The most important accomplishment of the fall group under Prexy Aregger
was the addition of three amendments to the constitution, involving eligibility
for student body offices, membership of the Executive Committee, and
awarding of blocks for athletics. The Congress also gave its official approval
to the newly formed art honor society, Alpha Rho Tau.
ln the spring most of the members of the Congress were busy helping in
Tarn's defense effort, the Victory Campaign. For that reason the new Congress,
under President George Roberts, performed only routine duties. However,
the Congress still remains one of the most influential groups on the campus,
and also one of the strongest pillars in Tamalpais democracy.

The two semesters just completed saw the combined boy and girl forces of
Tamalpais complete another successful year of Student Self-government in
a democratic manner.
Under the leadership of lack Foott and Patty Rivers in the fall, and Bob
Aregger and Dorothy Frese during the spring term, the self-governors saw
to it that Tam's petty "criminals" obeyed the rules enforced by the com-
Iack Foott's "gendarmes" were as follows: Art Schallock, George Caul-

Rice, and Ierry Ferragallo.
Patty Rivers had as her assistants: Dorothy Frese, student body talking,
lanice McCallum, fourth period cutting, Lois Long, uniforms, and Bea
Paganini, student body cutting.

ting, Lorine Wilkie, uniforms, Marilyn Dux, student body cutting, Elaine

NIR. E. E. MEAD
"For Services Rendered .... "
"l have here in my hand a document which lhave just regretfully received."
Such were the words of Principal E. E. Wood at last lanuary's commencement
exercises, when he made public the resignation of Mr. Ernest E. Mead, pres-
ident of the Board of School Trustees.
Twenty-two years ago Mr. Mead became a member of the Board when
Tamalpais was still struggling in the era of infancy which every high school
must endure. Two years later his excellent work rewarded him with the pres-
idency of the Board and it was here that his always alert mind and under-
standing of the students made his services invaluable to everybody and
everything connected with the school.
Although his was a position that received little public glory, he was con-
stantly attempting to improve Tarnalpais up to the time he was forced to
resign because of Civilian Defense activities.
For his willingness to serve the school, for his more than competent work,
and for his general ability to do a job and to do it well, we, the Associated
Students of Tamalpais, offer our humble thanks to Mr. Ernest E. Mead, and
sincerely hope that all his future endeavors will be as successful as his
twenty-two years of service on the Board of Trustees.

lt was August, 1938. We finished our breakfast, grabbed our spotless new
binder, said goodbye to our mother, and immediately entered into a new
world, a way of living and learning known as "high school."
That first day was a shock, we were amazed to find that we were nobody.
Everyone looked the same to us, except, of course, the freshmen. We could
distinguish them by either their artificial cockiness or the way they timidly
asked a senior the whereabouts of Room 19.
As we recall, everybody was humming a popular tune of the day entitled
"Small Fry." And what could be amore appropiate theme song for the motley
array of wild-eyed adolescents that we hesitatingly referred to as our "fellow
Truly, that first semester was one of trial and error, a multitude of home-
work, and a scarcity of friends. l942 seemed to be a myth, something that was
so far away that it didn't even enter into the realm of ourdaydreaming.
But then something happened. Friendship ceased to be just another word.
School Spirit ceased to be just another ideal. We were entering into activities,
going to dances, solving school problems, and becoming more and more a
part of Tamalpais.
l-low we thrilled when upper-classmen called us by our first name! And
what a sensation we received when we saw our name in the Tamalpais
News for the first time. That was something to show Mom and Dad!
The months flew by, but we didn't seem to notice, we were too busy
studying geometry, yelling at football games, going to fourth period meetings,
and lamenting the death of the "Special"
Yes, we had begun to realize that high school days are carefree days, and
that high school friends are real friends. Tamalpais was giving us everything
we wanted and we were attempting to repay the debt in the best way
possible, by becoming better and better citizens of our school.
Then all too soon we became one of the Almighty, a member of the Senior
Class. We pretended to be sophisticated big shots in the presence of
freshman, whether we succeeded or not is purely a minor issue.
1942, the year that always seemed to be decades away, was upon us and
we became a trifle panicky-panicky because Father Time was pushing us
onward and onward when we wanted to stop and stretch out the Senior
Year past its allotted time.
But it was no use. Graduation announcements soon made their appearance
and we swallowed the lump in our throat, looking ahead to the future with a
confidence that can only be associated with Tamalpais graduates.
The world is in a turmoil, war is everywhere, but still we face it with
upraised head, proud of our four years at Tamalpais and proud of our title
"the Senior Class oi l942."

Headed by Bob Aregger, who was also prexy of the N.B.L. Student Body
Officers Association, in the fall and George Roberts during the spring semester,
the Associated Students of Tamalpais once more enjoyed assemblies that
were both entertaining and educational.
Features of President Bob Aregger's term were the re-birth of the Student
Congress, and several student-participation programs, which were climaxed
by the annual Big Game rally at Sequoia Theater in Mill Valley, where Ernie
Smith, famed Pacific Coast sportscaster, was master of ceremonies.
Slightly revolutionary would be an appropriate term for President George
Robert's term of office. To assist in the all-out war effort, Roberts introduced
a vast program to purchase War Bonds and Stamps. "Dance for Defense"
was the slogan, and that's exactly what many of Tam's patriotic students
did every Thursday in the Assembly Hall, contributing a dime toward the
war effort for the privilege. Through these dances, the school was able to
purchase more than a few bonds. ln addition, a committee of student sales-
men went about each Tuesday to every classroom, selling stamps, and even
a few bonds were purchased by the students.
Some of the fine student body programs included concerts by the W.P.A.
Negro Chorus and Symphony Orchestra, the San Rafael Hi tumbling team,
a talk by Dudley Field Malone, and a performance by Pierce Knox, blind,
Student body officers under Aregger were as follows: Ralph Setterholm,
vice president, Susie Richards, secretary, Dave Ehrenfelt, treasurer, and
Peggy Honeywell, yell leader.
Officers under Roberts were: Iohn Parsons, vice president, Ditz Webster,
secretary, Lawrence Bernardini, treasurer, and Leo Curtin, yell leader.

Despite the War, or because of it, the Associated Girls of Tamalpais had
more fun and accomplished more this year than any other two terms combined.
Girls' Presidents Marion Rudolph in the fall and Ianet Lloyd in the spring, ably
assisted by Dean of Girls Mabel lane White, encouraged every member of
Tam's feminine sex to do her part for America. And the girls responded
willingly-rolling bandages, donating food and clothing to needy families,
and taking courses in child care and first aid.
Regular Girls' Association activities were also carried out-in the fall by
Marion Rudolph, president, Dottie Robb, vice president, lean Nipper,
secretary-treasurer, and Audre Burbeck, yell-leader.
Music, laughter, and fun were the keynotes of the Freshman Reception on
September l2. Senior and freshman girls participated in the program and
then followed it up with refreshments and dancing.
The long-dead Girls' linx was revived this year on October 25, and proved
to be a complete success for the girls and their mothers-if not for the boys
Who tried vainly to break in.
When the War broke out, the Girls' Banquet which was originally scheduled
for the night of December l2, was changed to a party in the afternoon. The
Senior Will and Prophecy were read, Christmas carols were sung, and the
girls danced to the music of the school dance band.
ln the spring Ianet Lloyd was elected president with Georgia Byers, vice
president, lanice McCallum, secretary-treasurer, and Susie Richards, yell-
The semi-annual Freshman Reception was supplanted this semester by a

Under the direction of Bandmaster Clifford Moore, the Tamalpais Band
Went through one of its most uneventful seasons due to the sudden out-
break of War.
The trip to Long Beach came very conveniently before the start of the
skirmish, but there seemed to be just a little too much competition for the
indian Band. Although the Long Beach excursion was the only major turnout
of the fall, the football and basketball games provided other opportunities
for the band to show their talents.
The annual Stockton and Davis high school turnouts, which were originally
scheduled for the spring, were called off due to curtailment of transportation
Spring found the musicians making the rounds of the grammar schools
with a special program, and on May Day Mr. Moore and the band entertained
the pupils of the Larkspur-Corte Madera school.
At the time this was Written, plans were being made for a loint Music
Festival with San Rafael High, to be presented at San Rafael on May 2l.
During the fall campaign the marching band was led by l-lead Drum Major
Harold Lezzeni, and by Henry Boyd in the spring.
Continuing on its merry way of supplying Tamites with the latest in school
doings, the good ship Tamalpais NEWS sailed through another successful
year, with Mr. lohn B. George as the Hpower behind the throne," and Mr.
lules Chourre handling the dirty work-printing the efforts of the NEWS staff.
On May 15, the fifteen i'Korn Kids" of the staff presented the annual NEWS
Barn Dance, which has, and always will be, THE dance of the year. ln
conjunction with the Barn Dance, a whiskerino contest was held two weeks
prior to the affair, the winners of this female-feared foolishness being
announced at the "jig."
The spring staff again attended the press convention sponsored by the
College of Publications at the University of California, and, as usual, at least
one NEWSer came home with the bacon. This year it was Ditz Webster, who
took the first prize cup in the writing contest.
The editorial staff for the fall consisted of Dave Kirby, editor, Frank
Corrigan, assistant editor, and Robin Marlin, manager.
NEWSers in the fall were Lawrence Bernardini, George Caulfield, Bob
Collin, Herb Huffman, Marion Kelly, Buzz Kirkwood, lean Lewis, Shelby
Martin, Marilyn, Myers, Norma Raymond, Carline Schumaker, and Ditz
Heading the staff for the spring semester were Frank Corrigan, editor, Bobin

WMM The Pai
Since World conditions might cause this to be the last Pai issued in some
years to come, the 1942 yearbook statt started to Work in Ianuary with the
intention of making this year's annual the best ever, something that would
be a landmark in Tamalpais journalism.
The preliminary layout Work Was begun by Editor Dave Kirby, and then
came probably the most difficult part ot the book, the picture taking. This was
expertly handled by Manager Ghery Pettit, Who completed the task in record
time, ably aided by Ianet Nipper.
Although shortage of space deemed it impossible to include every
Tamalpais activity in the book, the statt attempted to keep disappointment at
a minimum. The 1942 publication includes more group pictures than any other
Snap Editor Craig Sharp made a masterful job on the snapshot pages, as
the readers will surely agree. Sales Manager Peggy Banning and her statt

Although the l94l version of the Tamlpais unlimited football team didn't
win a North Bay League game, they did manage to give the two best elevens
in the N.B.L. their toughest afternoons of the year. Add to this fact that the
lndians should have easily won two games which they tied, and you have a
team that "could have been." However, the Red and Blue ended the league
menu submerged in the cellar with Napa and Analy.
The odds were even on the traditional Big Game with San Rafael, and after
the Warriors had pushed the Bulldogs all over the gridiron in the first half and
led by a 7 to U count at halftime, Tam's rooters were jubilant. However, the
Red and White came back in the second half to score two touchdowns and win,
l4 to 7.
The starting lineup for most of the games consisted of Murphy and Haley,
ends, Francke and Avilla, tackles, Fowler and McAdams, guards, Wosser,
center, Tierney, quarter, Ballinger and Laster, halves, and Rowland, full.
Reserves who saw a great deal of action were Thomas, Satmary, Wells, Meyer,
Practice season scores were as follows: Tam 7, Polytechnic 26, Tam 6,
Albany 7, Tam l3, lefferson O, Tam l2, Hayward l8. League skirmishes: Tam
U, Petaluma 28, Tam U, Napa O, Tam 2, Vallejo l3, Tam U, Santa Rosa U, Tam 7,
Analy 7, Tam 7, San Rafael l4.
Climaxing a season in which they had seemed destined to go places after
several lean years, the Tamalpais lightweight gridsters lost their final game
to their arch-rivals, San Rafael, and thereby lost any chance to claim part of
the N.B.L. title, they finished third in the league standings.
The lnjun Babes opened an undefeated practice season with a tidy l3 to 7
win over Napa, and when they tied the potent Petaluma Tro-Babes in the
league opener, the Papooses appeared as though they were going to fulfill
Coach Glidden Benefield's most fervent hopes for a championship. But then
came disaster with the aforementioned San Rafael Bullpups.
The starting lineup for most of the season was comprised of Richard Tobin
and iohnny McAdams or Bob Hurt, ends, Walt Van Meurs and Will Burgren,
tackles, Walt Madsen and Captain Bob Rutherford, guards, Keith Smith,
center, Captain Charlie Locati, quarter, Ralph Setterholm and Walt Pilippi,
halves, and Steve Duff, full.

"Successful" would be a fitting description of the l942 league season.
After a practice season marred with no victories, Tamalpais was ticketed for
the cellar championship of the North Bay League. But then came january
9, and the league opening. From the time that the referee threw up the casaba
until the last minute of the final garne, the lndians were "hot"
Maybe you could call it 'Pearl Harbor lnspirationf' Anyhow, the lndians
trampled over their first five opponents and it wasn't until they ran up against
a championship-bound Vallejo quintet that they suffered a setback.
Bouncing back from the Apache defeat, this quintet scored two victories
in their final contests and were rewarded with the second-place rung in the
Coach Wallace Andrewwkept essentially the same starting lineup for the
entire season: forwards--Nob Kuwatani and Dave Kirbyg center-Wally
Laster, and guards-lack Parsons and john Parsons. When Laster graduated
in mid-season, Ed Grimm, a transfer from St. lgnatius, was injected into the
Bob Aregger was the foremost replacement, often approaching first string
status. Reserves who saw much action included Tom Wosser and Dick Perber.
The l942 North Bay League scores were as follows: Tarnalpais 35, Analy
22, Tamalpais 39, l-lealdsburg l8, Tarnalpais 42, San Rafael 30, Tarnalpais 3l,
Petaluma 24, Tamalpais 40, Napa 26, Tarnalpais 38, Vallejo 48, Tamalpais Sl,
Santa Rosa 28, Tamalpais 35, San Rafael 23.
After soundly trouncing Analy and Healdsburg in their first two encounters
of the North Bay League season, Coach George Gustafson's lightweight
cagers had their eyes glued to the uppermost rung of the N.B.L. ladder, but
two losses at the hands of San Rafael and another administered by Santa
Rosa nipped any chance for a Tamalpais championship.
However, the Papooses did accomplish one noteworthy thing by drubbing
the Napa quintet, the team that won the l942 pennant.
Midway in the mediocre practice season, the Babes were weakened by the
loss of Richie Tobin and Ken Tullis to the armed forces. But this was more than
offset by the appearance of Art Schallock to the hardwood after a year's
Art became the fifth member of a first string composed of Bob Bulrnore,
smooth-working veteran, Dan Bushnell, a transfer from Colorado, Captain
Booty Rice, another veteran, and Dick Lindvig, a graduate of the C's. Reserves
who left the bench often were Hal Lezzeni, Bud Stiveson, Bob Collin, and
lack Forde. R
Bushnell and Rice led the team in the scoring column by chalkin-g up 60
and 59 points respectively in N.B.L. competition. .X 1- "

Starting their league season without any practice games behind them,
Coach Wallace Andrews' l2U pound sphere tossers came through with a
SOO per cent average at the close of their fall campaign. This particular
outfit was the best material seen in action for over six years.
Two of the Midget Men's losses were administered by one of the most
powerful guintets to ever set foot on an N.B.L. court, Vallejo. This Vallejo
team has won the championship for two years running, and in their last
game with Tam must have set some kind of a scoring record for Class
C basketball when they ran up a total of 56 points to 38 for the Red and Blue.
Some consolation was derived from the team's double victory over their
ancient rival, San Rafael.
Those stalwarts who comprised the starting five were lim Parker at center,
Dick Kotite and Melvin Zak at guards, and Gene Wegscheider and Ierry
Noonan at the ,forward spots.
Following are the seasons N.B.L. scores: Tam 2l, Vallejo 475 Tam 30, Napa
28, Tam 37, San Rafael l3g Tam 38, Vallejo 56g Tam 20, Napa 22g Tam l6,
San Rafael l4.
High point man for Tam during the league play was Iirn Parker, who
amassed a total of 52 digits in six games.
This spring's nine had one aim throughout the season-namely to regain
the championship which was lost in last year's league play.
ln the pursuit of this goal the main strength of the team lay in the pitching
arm of Southpaw Art Schallock, who, climaxing his third year as a varsity
regular, more than duplicated the feats of former Tamalpais mound stars.
With uncanny speed and control he allowed few foes to reach first base,
let alone score.
When this was written Coach G. T, Wendering's nine had yet to
lose a game. One reason? They had only played four contests. After the
completion of two practice games, existing conditions caused officials to
cancel all non-league tussles. But the lndians established an enviable record
in these battles, trouncing George Washington, l5-3, and tying 'lPolytechnic,

War conditions caused this year's swimming season to he entirely erased

However, most of the mermen still came down to the pool after school every
day to get into shape for the annual N.CS. meet, which was to be held on
May l6 at Stanford University.
Although it was too early at the time this was written to know the results
of that meet, Tam should have placed more than a few men in the competition
that includes all North Coast high schools.
Last season the lightweights won their third consecutive NCS. title by
running up a total of 37 points to their nearest competitors 22, quite a
remarkable performance in high school swimming circles.

Unlike the formidable outfits he has tutored the past three years, Glidden

beginning of the season Coach Benetielcl predicted that the Li'l lnjuns would
probably take the league.
Owing to the little matter ot a war going on, the track schedule was
greatly curtailed and besides the sub-league and league meets, the Indians
had but two practice tussles, which were held through the means ot wire-
less--Ttelegraphic meets." The schools were St. Helena and Santa Rosa,
the C's copping both of their encounters, while the B's dropped one to St.

Girls' Athletic Association
The Girls' Athletic Association is precisely what the name implies-a group
of Tamalpais girls interested in and active in sports. These Tamettes stay
after school throughout the year for hockey, swimming, basketball, baseball,
volleyball, and tennis.
When they have earned 50 points, they become members of the G. A. A.,
and are thoroughly initiated into the club, as many an exhausted Amazon will
Higher up on the ladder of girls' athletics is the Big T, an organization for
girls of real athletic ability. Eight hundred points are necessary for eligibility.
Members receive a block "T," and as more points are earned, a winged "T"
and an all-star pin.
The highest athletic award a Tamalpais girl can receive is a cup, presented
to one graduating senior. On a par with the boys' all-star block, this trophy
is awarded each semester to the girl who has exhibited the highest degree
of sportsmanship during her four years at Tam.
Supervising the feminine sports are a group of teachers who act as referees
and coaches all rolled into one. They are Mrs. lane Armstrong, Mrs. Ruth Hall,
Mrs. Katherine Flanagan, Miss Mary McCurdy, Miss Bruna Sartorio, Miss Rae
Buttner, and Miss Tannette Ialoff.
Results of the girls' athletic accomplishments up to the time of this writing
were as follows:
The mighty seniors won as usual over the other classes, with the frosh
running second. Members of the victorious senior team were Alice
Epidendio, Clare Tompkins, Norma Raymond, Dagmar Larsen, Marion
Righetti, Marion Rudolph, and Ianet Lloyd. Referees and coaches were
Miss Bruna Sartorio and Miss Mary McCurdy.
Over fifty girls went out for swimming and participated in the annual
mermaid meet this year. Class captains were Mary Ralston, freshmen,
