Hi kids Im Bully Bulldog and Im going to
retrace with you some of your happy memories of
1956-57. As you thumb through the pages of this
El Portal you will recall some of the happy and
We did not use a specific theme but instead, our
center of interest is focused on our school its serene
surroundings and its endless educational and athletic
activities. We are sure you will enjoy taking note of
these records that account for the time and fun you
have had at Tracy High this year
El Portal means the door. It is the door to a
lot of fun work and success. It is a sad thing for
those who must close the door for they leave behind
a lot of memories.
The staff has thoroughly enjoyed making this "El
Portal and we hope that you find this record of
Bulldog Land an enjoyable one

A Day With A Bulldog
At seven o'clock in the morning, the Main Building is deserted. Then, as students
begin to arrive by bus, car, and on foot, Tracy joint Union High School buzzes with
activity. The favorite gathering place is the hall, where they walk and talk with their
wax 59.-f332aa:,,,,Am 'M
The bell to go to homeroom rings at eight twenty-five. Here the roll IS called, students
may study, and the important announcements for the day are made Of course there are
always some who have been absent and must go to Mrs. Flack for admrts

Classes begin and continue through the
day with interesting and varied activities.
Students are given an opportunity to de-
velop their skill in shop, home economics,
chemistry and typing, which may be used
in later life.
In social studies we learn to live and
work with others.

Seniors at last! Starting the year off the seniors marched traditionally into the opening
day assembly. There we appeared very proudly in our new blue sweaters. Our routine
of study was quickly interrupted when our graduation pictures were taken. Not long
after that came the ordering of our announcements and the fitting of our caps and
gowns. Also, in the back of our minds was the big question: what would we wear for
graduation? It seemed our days were continually busy, for right after the gown fittings
came the prom committee.
We took many college examinations and interest tests to help decide our futures.
All too soon came the Senior Tea with all its formality, Baccalaureate, practice for
graduation, and then, the great day itself, graduation.
It has been a wonderful yearg it has been a hard year, but, all in all, it will be a year
we will always remember.

A new club at T.I.U.H.S. this year was the
Spanish Club. Although not organized to the
point of electing officers, it was very active in
presenting assemblies in Spanish and in auth-
entic costumes. Those pictured took part in the
programs and are students taking Spanish
classes. The programs were started as projects
for the Spanish III students who produced them.

"Night of January 16th,', a comedy-

presented by the Tracy High School
Theatre on the nights of November 16

vision of Mr. Ed Lyon.
This play, dealing with a woman
suspected of killing her boyfriend, was
an innovation for Tracy, due to the

committees, and being elected to office. The
purpose of the club is to inform and interest
members in the various fields of nursing. This

The Tracy High Bulldogs, under the
fine coaching of Mr. Swenson, had only
a fair season this year. However, they sur-
prised everyone by finishing third in the
V.O.L. After losing three games in a row,
the Bulldogs beat the league leading Ceres
Bulldogs and went on to win five games
in a row. just as Ceres had started the
Bulldog winning streak, they also ended
it. Tracy placed fourth in the LIONS'

C ee Team
Under the coaching of Mr. Zug-
elder the CEE team came up with
third place in the Valley Oak
League, winning five and losing
five. The leading scorer was Keith
Stewart, who was also co-captain
with David Misquez. It would be
hard to single out the outstanding
player on the team.
Every one did his part well and
there was good teamwork. If it
were not for a few bad breaks the
CEE team would have done better
this year. Vi
The Tracy High DEE Team had
a very successful season this year
under the coaching of Mr. Zugelder.
They were co-champs along with
Oakdale. They won all of their
games except oneg this was to Oak-
dale by the very slim score of 22
There were no individual stars on
the team. It took a lot of hard work
and hustle on the part of everyone
on the team.

As this year's El Portal goes to press, the Tracy High baseball team has not started
its Valley Oak League schedule but looks like it might go places when it does start
league play. Coach Brown has the bigger part of last year's team back and several new-
comers. So far their non-league record is three wins and two losses. None of the other
league teams look too good except for Sonora and Livingston. Oakdale, Ceres, and
Manteca were hit heavy by graduation and don't look too outstanding. So if all goes
well Tracy just might pull something out of the bag as far as the Valley Oak League

with St. Ignatius, which they split.

For the first time in Tracy High history, golf is now one of our main sports. Mr. Harvey
Miller is head coach of the team. He used to be Varsity basketball coach a few years back.
Next year Tracy will go into a new league where golf is one of the regular sports just like
football or anything else. We hope that Tracy will make a good showing of itself in this
new sport. This year they have played a few matches with such schools as Modesto,
Turlock, Downey, and others. Tracy did fairly well considering that these schools have
been playing golf now for quite a few years. We, the El Portal sports staff, wish Mr.
Miller and his boys all of the luck in the world in the coming years. Good luck!

rade, had a Christmas party, and had a
very successful sportsday. There were 12
new members initiated into the organiza-
tion this past year after earning the

The 1956-57 "El Portal" presents a new pattern of the
Tracy Union High School campus and of the activities
of students, teachers, and employees. The faculty advisors
and the staff of our "El Portall' may feel certain that
their review and record of the year's events and of the
new school buildings will create memories which will be
enjoyed by each one who reads these pages.
Teachers, administrators, trustees, and parents cherish
the memories of successful students, or successful school
activities. We give each student, regardless of race, color,
or creed, equal opportunity of complete individual de-
velopment. We want our future citizen to be physically
fit, mentally alert, and spiritually sound. We strive to de-
velop school plants which are modern in every respect and
which are equipped with proper and essential tools of
Students who come to Tracy Union High School with
a firm conviction of acquiring a well-rounded education
do not go away dissatisfied. They achieve those essential
goals set before them. They may read these pages of "El
Portal" ten years hence and revive memories that never
fade, memories of the land of the Bulldog, memories of
a Bulldog Heaven.

The memories that you as individuals acquire through
the years should be one of your most valued possessions.
Unlike material possessions, memories cannot be lost
through poor management or economic depression. They
remain, safely locked away within you, to be drawn upon
as you so desire. A time in your life that should be the
source of a great many fine and happy memories is that
period when you are growing into young womanhood or
manhoodg namely your high school years. It is my sincere
hope that each of you have had many pleasant and worth-
while experiences during this past school year that will
become a part of your storehouse of happy memories. This
year's "El Portal" staff has spent many hours in planning
and creating a record that will in future years serve as a
key to your memory vault. Here it is, the story of Bull-
dog Land, for your present and future enjoyment.

Something new was added this year
with the first appearance in Tracy of the
Sac-Joaquin Novice Wrestling Tourna-

Manteca won the meet, and Tracy placed

boys who had not won medals in wrestling
could compete, and interest was high.
Aches, pains, bruises, and a good time

This year we had a great turnout for the Manteca
parade and game. The afternoon was very busy with
everyone decorating cars, floats, and speculating on who
would have their initials engraved, on the trophy for the
winning float. That day the weather was just what we
needed to boost our spirits. The parade was a great
success and the queen, Janice Marks, ruled over the

The evening that followed was filled with hope and

were a little shattered at the loss of the game, but the
feeling was still there that everyone had put forth their
best ability and every effort possible.
