Q r I' I' Early this year, while everyone was in the haze ot new activities and while classes were still in the process ot tormation, plans and ideas tor the tuture El Portal were already taking shape. As time wore on, many ot these "tirst" ideas were discarded-others were added. When the problems ot publication arose. a specfal trip was made to Berkeley by Mr. Crow, Mr. Westlake, Mrs. Rentz, Jerry Simas, and Lucie Campo. The mounting ot this obstacle lett another in its wake. Due to fhe wartime conditions, costs had risen, increas- ing the price ot our book accordingly. ln an ettort to raise the additional sum ot money, :wo plays, namely, "Oh Johnny," and "Everything's Gttf' were successtully sponsored by the statt through the cooperation ot the Drama class. These were tollowed later by the tirst Saturday Night Dance ever given 'n our gym, the theme ot which was Valen- "ne's Day. We are indebted to Mr. Westlake tor his splendid cooperation. his never ending patience and his invaluable assistance which made possible so great a part ot this book. Many students, not on the statt, and several members ot the taculty have been very helptul, We are especially gratetul to Mrs. Fne and Mrs. Cahow, And to Mela Erceg our thanks tor her typing. It is our sincere wish tnat the publication expresses to your satstaction those memories pa impressions that w' A give you many moments et eieasare throughout the years.

They are usually so engrossed and involved in The game ThaT, Tor a Time aT leasT, They lose all inTeresT in personal appearance. AT The Time oT This wriTing The baskeTball TournamenTs have noT progressed Tar enough To be able To predicT a winner, buT The games Thus Tar have been very close and very exciTing. All The Teams are TighTing Tiercely Tor The coveTed championship OT The school. Many oT The girls who are now giving Their all in The TournamenTs were privileged in February To geT a liTTle pre-season pracTice session. Miss WesTon, girls' P. F. Teacher aT PaTTerson l-ligh senT an inviTaTion To Miss Madison re- quesTing her To bring Tour Teams To a baskeTbalI playday where They would compeTe wiTh PaTTerson Teams. By The age-old process of eliminaTion one Team Trom each class, Freshman, Sophomore. Junior, and Senior was chosen. AT PaTTerson each Tracy Team was opposed by a PaTTerson Team of The cor- responding class. -The Senior Team, having To break The ice and play TirsT, was a biT nervous, and Thus losT Their game by a preTTy large margin. The following games were a liTTle more closely conTesTed Than The TirsT, wiTh The Frosh Team coming very close To vicTory buT losing iT by only one poinT. The high individual scorers oT The day were Eva Mello, Senior: DoT Theall, Junior: Levonne Ander- son, Sophomore, and Doreen Lowery, Freshman. AlThough our girls came ouT on The shorT end oT The scores They had a very enioyable day. Cookies and chocolaTe were served laTer in The day and iT was Tound ThaT The PaTTerson girls were much more pleasanT To know off The courT. The girls in The sixTh period gym class held Their own privaTe TournamenT one day in The class. They challenged The sixTh period boys To a baskeTball game! The game was a nip and Tuck all The way-ThaT is, unTil The lasT quarTer. No one acTually knows whal' The Tinal score was, buT someone said The boys Took an awful beaTing. OT course, This may be a prejudiced opinion, who knows? AITogeTher, baskeTball season was one of greaT success. SENIOR VOLLEYBALL CHAMPS TOP ROW, leff fo right: Cole, Campo, Frcrichs.

Thus, during The balmy, Indian- surnmer days, enThusiasTic soTTbalI games were played, while The volleyball games were scheduled for a Time when The weaTher forced us To play inside The gym. ln The midsT of a Typical "rainy season," a shorT, snappy TournamenT was run off. The breviTy of The TournamenT was offseT, however, by The exciTing games. In all conTesTs The scores were very close, buf The powerful Senior "A" Team finally emerged The champs of The school. SOI-'TBA LL SofTball seemed To be The "fill-in" sporf of This year. As usual, The girls received iT wifh enfhusiasrn, and played many excifing games. AT The beginning of The school year sofTball was played for many weeks-in facf, nearly all of The firsT quarTer. Even during The baslceTball season if one of Those freak, surnmery days would occur, The girls would persuade Miss Madfson To leT Them have a sofTball game. An exciTing Spring Tourna- r'nenT ended wi'h a close Score. TENNIS LEFT TO RIGHT: Marks Baldwin, Walson, Hollings- head, Connal, Marks, Levin Frerichs, Pell. ' P PN x I 1: N N I o ln former years. only a few girls seemed inleresled in playing lennis. bul lhis year an unusually large number of girls loolc an aclive inleresl in lhe sporl. ln facl, in all lhe gym classes lhere was always a scramble lo see who could gel lhe coveled eighl racquels firsl. Some of lhe older girls, who have had lime lo develop experl baclchand slrolces, lriclcy serves, and lhe lilce, had some fasl-moving and billerly-conlesled games. For many of lhe Freshmen girls lhis was lhe firsl opporlunily for lhem lo lalce a "whack" al lhe game, and afler lhe firsl couple of limes oul on lhe courls lhey found lhal lennis could really be fun-especially if, occasionally, one of lheir mighly swings happened lo connecl wilh lhe lennis ball. Many of lhem loolr lo lhe racquel lilce ping did lo pong, and wilh a lillle more praclice should become quile experl al lhe game. Who lcnows-maybe we have a fulure Alice Marble or a feminine Don Budge in lhe malcingl INDIW IDUA L SPORTS The spollighl was very seldom lurned on individual sporls lhis year. I-lowever, on some days, badminlon, shuffleboard, and ping-pong were played. Badminlon seemed lo be lhe favorile of lhe girls, allhough ping-pong probably ran a close second on lhe popularily lisl. Shuffleboard was played and enjoyed by only a few girls: bul, however, lhe war may have somelhing lo do wilh lhis. ll seems lhal shuffleboard is a game enjoyed on board ocean liners, and since war-lime reslriclions malce il impossible lo lalre ocean voyages, perhaps lhe girls see no immediale use for shuffleboard. For lhose girls who cannol parlicipale in aclive sporls, lhere are such lighl aclivilies as iaclrs, darls, and piclr-up-sliclrs. On rainy days lhese aclivilies were oflen parlicipaled in by many of lhe girls. ln facl, somelhing new in lhe way of lournamenls here al Tracy I-ligh was experienced when a iaclcs conlesl was held. A surprisingly large number of girls signed up for lhis lournamenl. ' FACE The crowd is lense-lhere's lhe craclr of a pislol-and lhey're off down lhe lraclcl Thal's righl, lhis year lhe girls, loo, will compele lo see il lhere is anolher Gundar I-laegg or Jimmie Rafferly in lhe crowd. This is lhe firsl lime in quile a few years lhal lhe girls of Tracy High have been given an opporlunily lo lesl lheir slcill in lhis parlicular field of sporls. Included on lhe lraclc program will be lwenly-five yard, fifly yard, sevenly- five yard and hundred yard dashes: relay races, and dislance lhrowing of baslrelballs and baseballs. The girls will have many praclices in all of lhese and lhen conlesls will be held wilhin each of lhe gym classes. Class winners will lhen compele in lhe final conlesl lo delermine lhe school champs of each evenl.
