Back through the years our school has made a record of which we can all be proud.
l-lowever, we can not rest on past laurels but must strive to see that every student who
leaves our school goes with the best possible training for a successful future. As l have be-
come acaainted with our teachers, l have been impressed by the fact that that is the aim of
every one of them.
l am appreciative of the co-operation of our entire student body, lt would be difficult to
find another student body of the caliber of ours, Our students have demonstrated a desire
to achieve in an academic sense as well as in athletics and other extra-curricular activities.
Our accomplishments in the war
effort are noteworthy. The pur-
Mr. W. H. VOID Dyke, Principal chase of war bonds and stamps
has enabled us to fly the Minute
Man flag every month this year.
The enthusiasm with which our
students have carried on Red
Cross and lnfantile Paralysis
drives and the l'Clothes For the
Needy" campaign is praise--
We all earnestly pray that the
war will soon be over, A great
many of our alumni are making
outstanding records in the service,
and of these, many have given
their lives that our democratic
ideals may prevail here at home
and throughout the world, To
these go our greatest praise and
to their parents our sincere sym-
l have enjoyed working with
our faculty and student body
during this past year, l believe
that Tamalpais has a great future
and l am proud to have the oppor-
tunity to work with you all for

We the class of Iune 45 after spendmg four memorable years at Tamalpa1s
are golng out to face a world of turmoll destructlon and bew1lderment wlth
the hope that we can take part m 1nsur1ng a lastmg peace
lt was tn September l94l that Tam was plagued wrth the entrance of the
class of 45 Mrssmg the renowned Speclal by only slx months we boarded
the huge yellow cofflns--at that t1me three of us could squeeze mto one seat
We1ghted down by a pyramld of text books but wear1ng our most grown up
atr we were gulckly deflated by a sophtstlcated semor rn one word
l94l We lost The Blg Game l4 7
The most serlous event 1n all our hrgh school years was f1l1ng 1nto Mead Theater on the mormng of
December 8 l94l and l1sten1ng gravely to Presrdent Roosevelts declarat1on of war Our class dld
not fully feel the lmpact of war but we could see the effect upon upperclassmen as many of the
boys enllsted tn the servlce
lt was 1n our Sophomore year when We started pat ron1z1ng ye old Canteen and 1t was here that we
enjoyed our flrst smoke Tam females were gomg around wlth a dazed look IH the1r eyes about thts t1me
Reason? The arrtval of teachers George Corson and Harold Alhson
The SCOb16 rage struck Tamalpa1s as numerous glamor boys showed up on the campus mlnus the1r
l942 We lost The Brg Game 3 O
As our boys gave the1r all Tamrtes also dug ln to achleve the 90 per cent goal ln bonds and stamps
sales and the Vrctory Flag Th1s had been the arm of Tam students for a year
We remember when our names f1rst appeared ln The NEWS how ex
ctted we were and how b1g t1me we felt Graduat1on seemed too far m the
future to worry about Our f1rst school dance w1ll always be among our most
cherlshed memorles havlng classes w1th semors Sundays at Stlnson betng
recon1zed by the Blg Guns of the day-all these made our sophomore year
one to be remembered always
The man shortage struck home as an all glrl cast presented Brtef Mus1c
a college comedy as the semor play and what a success 1t was' 7 Y
At last-after two years ln obscurtty we became upperclassmen lunrorsl T3
We had waltea so long to reach th1s goal and now for the f1rst t1me we real
tzed that our hxgh school years were more than half over
l943 We lost The Blg Game 6 O
Wrth the end of our Jun1or year approachtng Tam1tes were startled by the announcement that after
36 years of prmclpalshtp Mr E E Wood The Du ke was leav1ng Tam ln Iune We recalled then all
the ttmes he had spoken before the Student Body and we reahzed that all our memorles of Tam had been
connected w1th th1s whlte hatred amrable personahty Mr W H Van Dyke would be our next pr1nc1pal
and we wondered what he would be l1ke
And then all too soon tt happened We entered our last last year at Tam semors
We started off wtth a thud when for the fxfth consecutwe year we lost The Btg Game 20 12 How we
wa1ledl' Fate 1ust couldnt do th1s to us we felt a l1ttle better as we defeated
the once mtghty Bulldogs m basketball tw1ce
x The past year has whlzzed by gomg to all the football games and cheer
mg t1ll we were hoarse w1th the Pep Comm1ttee seemg all the up and commg
B1g Shots not1c1ng the whlte halls as the pa1nters changed them from dark
to hght trylng desperately to get a tan by s1tt1ng tn the Mead Theater at lunch
and l1sten1ng to the rad1o all these and oh so many more are the memorles
,hd or our senlor year
lu Then tt came so fast the great day was approachmg
N., Q9 Graduatton hsts were pubhshed announcements were sold at last we
reahzed that we yes tt was us th1s t1me were gomg to say goodbye to our
beloved alma mater Tamalpa1s
We have only one request to make and that IS that you never never forget us because whether
we are on the battlefteld or ln war work whether 1t IS durmg the war or after lt we W1ll always
always remember you and our years at Tam
So the Class of 45 says goodbye to you foster mother goodbye to four of the most wonderful years
ln our l1ves our years at Tamalpa1s I-hgh

With a rapidly improving team, it appeared that Coach Glidden Benelields
predictions for another Tam championship squad would be fulfilled.
The Varsity cindermen, after losing their first two meets to Polytechnic and
Richmond, showed their true merit in the rest of their meets as they easily de-
feated Santa Rosa, Piedmont, San Rafael twice, Napa twice, and Vallejo.
Consistant point-getters for the varsity were: Emil Pohli, Al Brush, lack
Baker, Frank Lamb, lack lohnson, Sherm Hall, Meade Badger, Mickey Iones,
Foster Mahood, Bob Shaw, Bob Hoots, Bill Andrew, Harvey Zion, George
Fontes, lack Conner, Warren Dawes, Bill Mendenhall, Pat Paulsen, and Co-
Captains Chuck Crawford and Rick Sherman.
The undefeated "B" cindermen looked as if they were headed for their
third straight championship with the following boys pacing the victories:
Clark Gilman, Clyde Iones, Bob King, Peter Bann and Co-Captains Erskine
Bufano and Bill Hynes.
A weak Tamalpais "C" team lost all hope for a high place in the N.B.L, when
their veteran captain, Iohn Elder, missed the weigh-in,
