Shy and humble mighT besT describe The members oT The
class oT '45 as we awkwardly waiTed in The corridor Tor
someone To Tell us where The audiTorium was. One OT The
"been-around" Sophs informed The meek ones ThaT "you
guys haT Ta siT upsTairs." SeaTed uncomTorTably in The bal-
cony, we TasTed a semesTer oT peace-Time high school, and
Then The spoTlighT was Thrown on Pearl Harbor. AcTiviTies
slowed down, buT we sponsored our dance, The Freshman
ReTurn, and became a parT oT Tracy Union High School
under The leadership of our Tvvb presidenTs, Rosalie Phelps
and Carolyn Copeland.
The Thunder oT many TeeT and The cries oT emancipaTed
Frosh characTerized one oT our mosT Thrilling momenTs of
our second year-liberaTion from The balcony! PaTrioTism
was The Theme Tor The Sophomore Hop. and while The busT
of George WashingTon looked down, The sTudenT body
danced To The musical accompanimenT of Mr. Schuien-
burg's High School Dance Band. Again our choice in presi-
denTs ran To The fairer sex, Befhel Laurison and JaneT
Hilken. As Sophomores, we considered iT an honor To
assisT wiTh The decoraTions and do The ushering Tor The
BaccalaureaTe Service Tor The ouTgoing Seniors.
A year passed--The sounds oT music and gaieTy TloaTed
ouT of The gym of Tracy High. The class of '45 was giving
iTs Prom. The Theme was "Dreamship," and as '45-ers
glided and Twirled over The Treshly-polished Tloor, iT was
noTiced ThaT undue aTTenTion was being given To hands.
Yes! The class rings had arrived, and everyone was ad-
miring Them. ln This year, Tor The TirsT Time, The boys as-
serTed Their leadership. Bill Fox and Bob Hedrick wielded
The class gavel.
AT lasT we siT in Those coveTed TronT seaTs! The same Tel-
lows and girls who were meekly occupying The balcony
Three years before-buT. Oh! The difference-poised and
conTidenT where once we had been bashful and awkward.
We had reached The pinnacle of regular school acTiviTies.
The Seniors sTaged a class play, "Ever Since Eve," under
The direcTion of Mrs. Baumqardnerf our presidenTs, Earl
Woodward and Ramon Coykendall, wiTh The help of Mrs.
RenTz, Mrs. Fine, Mr. Moore, and Mr. Miller, senior ad-
visors, successfully direcTed our Senior Ball and oTher acTivi-
And so ended four happy, crowded years.

lipsTick becomes a biT smeared. 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.

As usual, volleyball was The firsT sporT on The girls' schedule. l-lowever, afTer a few
games iT was decided To posfpone The TournamenT. 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.
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.

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
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
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.
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.
