Dear hir. Luce:
ln our capacity as the co editors of the
lil l'ortal, the yearbook of Tracy Union lligh
School, we wish to ask your permission to use
the format of your magazine. We have en-
closed an approximate copy of our cover.
We do not plan to use the name, Life, nor
the names of anyone connected with it. We
intend only to use Life as a general basis for
the organization of our yearbook.
Tracy is located 65 miles east of San Fran-
cisco in the San Joaquin Valley.
We would greatly appreciate it if you would
allow us to use your format.
Co-Editors of lil Portal
Tracy Union lligll School
llear Miss Monnich and Mr. Campbell:
Thank you for your letter of September 22nd
and enclosed layout, which Mr. Lucc's office
has referred to my attention.
We are glad to give you permission to pat-
tern the l950 El Portal alter LIFE, and your
cover design looks line-except for just one
part: the band at the bottom will have to be
a straight line all the way across, instead of
having a jag. For your guidance in planning
the rest of the yearbook, following are the
modifications to be observed, in line with
U. S. trademark and copyright regulations:
l. The word LIFE must not appear in a box,
regardless of color, either on the cover or
elsewhere in the book.
Z. lt must he stated nn the cover that the
yearbook is published by Tracy Union High
School. as you indicated.
3. Our copyrighted subtitles, such as "Speak-
ing of Pictures," "LIFE Goes to . . . ," or
"Visits . . . ," etc., should be changed
enough so there is no chance of identifying
them too closely as coming from LIFE
Many thanks for your kind compliment to
lgFE, and all best wishes for a successful
Dorothy l.. Smith

Your Mid-Century Issue of "lil Portal" is
tremendous. We are pleased with the selection
ol LIFE Magazine as a theme. The quality
and breadth of coverage is interesting, accur-
ate, and. from all reports, complete. As a vet'
eran school executive one can easily realize
that our student body, teaching staff. and ad-
ministrative organization are essentially ade-
quate fnr a school which is "Second to None."

LETTERS T0 THE
There have heen many splendid issues of the
lil Portal in the past, hut you are to be com-
mended for the unique manner which you
have employed in presenting the 1950 issue.
You have done an excellent job and your
efforts will be greatly appreciated.
President of School Board
Like everyone I was a little doubtful on
entering a new high school, and was sure this
school could never compare with the one l
I have gone to many schools, from Indiana
to California, and I can truthfully say that l
have made more friends more quickly here
than in any school l've attended. l just hope
that Tracy High School students will continue
to be friendly to newcomers like myself.
I am very happy to live in the United States.
The American people are just wonderful. I
shall never forget how kind the American peo-
ple were in Germany, on the hoat, and right
here in Tracy. ln America a man is free.
This is different from Europe. In Germany if
you wanted to move to another place, you had
to register with the police and get allowances.
That's how it was during the war. Also the
people in European countries had to suffer
from different wars and foreign governments.
Housing in Germany was very bad: lots of
people lived under the blue heaven, and it was
much harder with the food which was almost
nothing. The difference between American
food and German food during and after the war
was that a millionaire could not eat as well as
an American Workman eats. Everybody had a
ration card, but the rations were so little that
a man could eat his food for one month in
I like Tracy High School very much. I am
iust surprised that a town ot this size has
such a nice big school. The teachers are very
good and kindly. The subjects are very prac-
tical and good. In our school we didn't have
such subjects as shop, auto, radio, and photo-
graphy. We could take them outside school.
We had school about half a day, and couldn't
study in school: we had to study at home. I
think that we had more work in our schools.
We learned more languages and about foreign
countries and their histories. It's strange that
American schools don't teach these things.
The American students are very friendly.
They almost all like football. In Europe we
played a difTerent kind of football. The Amer-
ican students don't have the rigid discipline
in the school.
After I have finished high school, I want,
if it is possible, to get more education in an

These additions were made to at'-
eommodate the ever increasing elasses
that are entering Traey High. The old
loeker rooms have bet-ome erowded.
and the gym, built to seat 500, strains
at the seams. The new loeker rooms
will provide ample spaee for every-
one. There are enough showers now, so
that students will never again have to
wait their turn. The great strueture of
the new gym was built to seat 1600 to
2000 people. There will be a dividing
vurtain to aero m mo date two mueh
needed gym elassrooms during the day.
The strong steel beams and the won-
derful lighting system is certainly no
eomparison for the old gym.
Four of the elassrooms that were
built will be used to house the English
department. These four rooms are iden-
tieal. The remaining three classrooms
will be a modern and well-equipped
Home Economies department. Six new
gas stoves and five new eleetrie stoves
will be installed in the vooking room.
There are enough sinks and working
tables to aeeommodate twenty-two girls.
In the sewing roont will be many
elosets and separate drawers lor eaeh

ing marhines have been purehased. A
spaeious fitting room with full length
mirrors aml a display ease has been
eonstrueted eloseby. The interior of all
classrooms is light green and the ex-
terior is a darker eolor with an ofl'
A new bus garage was built in order
that the old building eould be used for
shop elassroom expansion.
These modern buildings, that were
eompleted during the latter part of
April, were eonstruvted for the safety
and health of the students aeeording
to state and lot-al requirements.

A great dream will finally be realized for 112
seniors on .lune 7, 1950. That is the evening of
their graduation ceremonies, and will be accom-
panied with all the enthusiasm that usually goes
with such an event. A great new future wi'll be
opened to these graduates, and they are now pre-
pared to meet it.
Many students have become disillusioned
throughout the years, and have not done as well
as they could have, but there are some who have
done extremely well. These students have come
one step closer to an important place in the fu-
There are those who will attend college. They
will gain further knowledge and skill, and some-
day they will become very important members of
society. Doctors, lawyers, actors, and engineers
may very well come from the class of 1950.
Some will begin to work immediately, while
for others wedding bells will be ringing. These
graduates who will soon become useful members
of an adult society know that their class has been
a good one and that their future will bring both
happiness and sorrow.
Student government is a major step in the pre-
paration of young people to become good citi-
zens who will be worthy of their heritage of
You may not realize that your ideas about stu-
dent government reflect your opinion of the na-
tional government. lf you feel that the laws are
not strong enough or are unjust, you may say sog
but you wi'll do nothing about it. lf you feel that
the office holders are not honest or are incapable
of carrying on their duties, it is still too much
trouble for you to fully support a recall move-
The youth of our land is following the pattern
of lackadaisical interest in government and in
voting set forth by parents. Our predecessors have
written and spoken many words about democratic
self-government and the part the ordinary citi-
zen plays in it. Yet as so many of us do, previous
generations have been so busy handing out free
advice that they have forgotten to practice what
Basically all Americans believe wholeheart-
edly in their government and in the ideals of the
American way of life. They lack faith mostly in
the men who hold public office and direct the af-
fairs of the nation. On the school, city, state, or
nati'onal level good government depends on the
strong leadership of men who have the interest
of the masses at heart.
Faith in the wrong kind of leaders can head
a nation and its people into chaos. This has been
shown so clearly by the recent followers of Ben-
ito Mussolini and Adolph Hitler. They were liv-
ing proof that strong leadership must also be
Woodrow Wilson once said that a president
can be as big as he makes himself. ln a student
government this idea is the same.
Student government is as good as the student
body president and the student body president
is no better than the students who vote for and
support him. Each individual student holds in
his grasp the means of providing good govern-
ment. That means it is the well-thought-out vote.
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The Board of Trustees of Tracy Union High
School is a body of hard working men who serve
the community without pay and seldom receive
the recognition they deserve.
The rural district is represented by three farm-
ers: William Koster, lrvin Petz, and Lester
Krohn. The remaining two members who repre-
sent the city are Truman Blair, a businessman,
and Dr. Marion Weitz.
These men meet the second Tuesday of every
month with Wayne Crow in the principal's office
to discuss and plan the operation of the school
plant and improvement of the educational facili-
ties for the young people of our growing commu-
Students of Tracy High School come from a
wide area as does the financial support. The rural
area represents 75? of the wealth of the school
district and 2596 of the population.
As the attendance increases and expansion of
the school becomes necessary, many new prob-
lems arise. We are fortunate in having these civi'c
minded men who devote their time to our school.
Pictured at the right is Suzie, the staffs idea of the mascot of Tracy High School. The bulldog was adopted as
mascot in 19245 the school colors, green and orange, were chosen at that time but were later changed to green and gold.

This year's edition of the Trary Bulldogs fought their
way to second place in the Valley Oak League. Coaches
Andrew Korba and Richard Hart piloted an injury-riddled
squad through the season with remarkable skill and were
