I - Sfreeholder Board' forms TIJINIS Dolicies Paralleling the work of a Board of Freeholders in a corporation, Tranquillity Union High Board of Trustees formulates all policies for the "corporation farm" of the high school. Countless trying problems crop up during the course of a year's school planning, and it takes a great deal of time, effort, and patience to cope with them. This year the Board reached tentative agreement on some issues involved in enlarging the school plant, a matter which has been under consideration for some time Also of special import- ance on the Board's agenda was forming an administrative code, a statement of rules and policies. Mr. Earl White has served on the Board of Trustees for the longest period of time, ll years. He owns and operates the Helm Garage. A member of the Board for lO years is Mr Anthon Carvalho local rancher Mr Fred . y , . . Garrison, a San Joaquin farmer, has given of his time and efforts in the interest of the high school for five years. The fourth member of the Board in order of length of service is Mr. William Deal who farms in the Mendota area. Mr. Clayton Brown has been on the Board two years. He operates a ranch in the Cantua district. ' I.. 2 ' li ki- , , :,'A ,N wi' I 'if-kllv.: lA-:- 4 l 1 4 if i - - 'N Af ' ', E3 . A Q I . ' i ' l 1 h ,K , ', V L Y .yn MR. WILLIAM DEAL, SR. MR. E. R.

CLAYTON BROWN President 6 orkers' Draise Again l wish to express my gratitude to students of Tranquillity Union High School for their excellent behavior and fine attitude. Discipline cases gradually become fewer and the percentage of attendance be- comes higher as students make progress in developing qualities of good citizenship. More and more students who transfer to other school express regret upon leaving, and more and more returning students are happy to come back. These are good signs. This is your school, and it is just as good as you make it. As your administrator, l congratulate you, Iliff ?,ff'W-,sesf SUPERINTENDENT ALFRED R. EVEREST ffice taff Handles tfarmt Business Every large farm needs secretarial help to take care of paper work and a variety of office tasks for the business as a whole. The TUHS " farm" is no exception in this regard. ln the school office, letters are written, announcements duplicated and distributed, supplies sold, and rent on teacherages collected. Records of attendance, registration, and grades are made and filed. Separate sets of books are kept for district, cafeteria, and office funds. Monthly financial reports are made and quarterly, semiannual and yearly reports are compiled. r OFFICE STAFF-Mrs. Bernyce Hughes, txpist, Mr Jack Cook, vice principal and attendance officer, Mrs. Helen Napier, bookkeeper and general office worker Tommy Foster and Alphonso R.vera iboth standing are student helpers 6 ired Hands' Keen Danch n rder Well-equipped farm vehicles, a big kitchen to satisfy hearty young appetites-these are other necessary elements to keep the ranch running smoothly and all the workers happy. Every day seven bus-drivers keep themselves busy hauling TUHSers to and from the "main office" and keeping the school plant and surrounding area spic and span. Likewise, every day three cooks slave over hot stoves preparing sumptuous meals for those they love to serve. Mrs. Phyllis Beason, Mrs. Freeda Lewis, and Mrs. Clara Perry prepare tasty foods for hungry students.

' A S0lll'ld EdlICilti0lI At the close of another year in the annals of TranquiIlity's history, members of the class of '54 pause to look back over the four years of fun, festivi- ties, and classwork they have shared. They suddenly come to real- ize what teachers and adminis- trators have been trying to tell them for a long time. lt is they, the graduating seniors, who are reaping the benefits of a plentiful harvest - a sound education. An education acquired while having fun, playing games, developing talents, becoming leaders, is the fruit of the tiny seeds planted four short years ago.

To fin- ance a trip to the state legis- lature for delegates, Gerry Brown and Tom Phillips, a movie was sponsored by the class. "Seventeenth Summer" was the romantic comedy stag- ed December 4 as the senior play. The soil is fertile here at TUHS, and seniors have made the most of it. Toiling with hands and minds, they devel- oped traits, ideals, and prin- ciples which will be a guide through life, helping to mold them into sound citizens of tomorrow. 4, Band l, 2, 3, 25 DONNA ARCELUS - Student Council 2, Class Treasurer 3, Cheer Load- er 2, 3, Band Officer 3, 4, Tennis Manager 2, 3, 4, Y-Teens l, 2, 3, 4: GAA 2, 3, 4, CSF 3: Senior Play 3, 4, Rally Committee 3, Bank of America Fine Arts Award 4, GEORGE FOSTER - Transfer from Walton, ln- diana, Business Manager Hi-Lite, Tule 4, Senior Class Reporter.

Performing at rallies, football games, and basketball games, they flashed school colors and led Tiger yells. lt made no difference to these girls what the scoreboard read. When the teams were ahead, they gave victory yells and urged players on to higher scores. When behind, the lusty encour- agement still came, to bolster dragging spirits. Accompanied by the band, the pep girls had a classy array of dance, song, and yell routines. Special mention should be given Ral- ly Chairmen Elma Maddox and Zora Smith, who arranged peppy and inspiring rallies. Zora assumed the duties mid-year when Elma became too heavy-laden with other activities. Both pep squad and cheerleaders were decked out in new uniforms during the year.

They will lose most of the regulars from this year's team, but have a fine bunch coming up from the JV's for next year, and the future looks bright. Tranquillity opened the season by dropping a game to Fresno High JV's. Bouncing back they took Roosevelt's JV team into camp. Then came two consecutive league losses, to Riverdale and Parlier. TUHS hit the winning column again, however, by swamping Laton, Tigers threw a scare into mighty Caruthers before going under in the third quarter, and ended the season shut out by Sierra. Wingback Rufus Vega, trophy winner, and tailback Benny Oller were the main work horses throughout the season, while Tom Phillips was brilliant on the line.

They lost some close games and ended the season with 8 wins and lO losses. The mark, however, does not tell the whole story, as the Tigers gave every team they played a rough game. Some of the high-lights of the year were a lopsided win over the teachers, taking third place in league standings atter being in last place the year before, and placing fourth at the Dos Palos basketball tournament. One ot the teams noted characteristics was that it would play "rough and tumble" basketball for three periods, then play great the last quarter, and rack up easy wins going away. The Tigers bewildered Laton ltwicel, Caruthers, and Parlier with their last quarter spurts. ln the first game against Caruthers, however, they had to go all the way to win by one point.

'I3' Team Commands Iecond Dlace The B squad played six practice games, winning one and losing five. ln league standing the Cubs took command of second place with a 7-win 3-loss record, one game behind champion Laton After Coach Jack Cook changed the team's offense from a set pattern to a fast break, things started happening. First came an upset win over Laton in the first league game. Then came wins over the alumni, Sierra, and Caruthers before dropping a game to Parlier. The kittens bounced back to win from Riverdale. Starting the second round of play the B's took two crushing defeats from Laton and Sierra. They ended up the season in a mad rage by dumping Caruthers, Parlier, and running up a league scoring record against Riverdale. TUHS 57 . . LATON 54 TUHS 52 . . SIERRA 38 TUHS 44 . .

Tiger Horsehiders Weather ouch Season Tiger baseball team won tour out of ten games played. Failure on the part of pitchers to come through, and loose infield and out- tield playing were main reasons for the club's downfall. The squad started out in high hopes, but received a jolt when Curtis Porter re-injured a shoulder after the opening game with La- ton. The Cats won that game, but minus Porter's services, were easy prey for both Par- lier and Riverdale. Curtis returned for the Sierra game and pitched the Tigers to their second victory. Brought up from the JV's in mid-season, Tom Snowden started against Caruthers, los- ing a heartbreaker in extra innings. Meeting Laton for the second time, the Tigers went down to defeat. They bounced back to take Parlier and then lost a make-up game to Ca- ruthers and were blanked by Riverdale. TUHS ended the season by polishing off Sierra.

Defending champion Jayvees tied the league championship in the last game they played, against Sierra. They began the sea- son in a torrid pace as they disposed of Laton, Parlier, and Riverdale in easy fashion before meeting Sierra. Losing to the Papooses let down their hopes a little, and they also went down before Laton. With two losses it looked almost hopeless for the Cubs since Sierra was undefeated. Par- lier then came into the picture and gave the Cubs a boost by sending Sierra home with their first loss of the season. The Cubs then raced through Parlier and threw Riverdale for a loss while waiting eagerly for their next en- counter with the hill team. This set the stage for the final clash between the two teams on the Cubs home field where the locals won and deadlocked the championship.

Tl'ilCKl11Bl1 Have fine f0i:lS0l1 Although only C's cap- tured Valley Championship, the l954 track season was highly successful. ln the main local track event of the year, Tiger cin- dermen swept two Tranquil- lity Relays championships- A and C class. Going into their dual meet season, the A squad was unbeaten as they rolled over Parlier 57-55, Laton 72M-3l M, and Central 56- 47. ln a larger meet, they combined with B's and C's to win the sweepstakes trophy at Kerman's annual Block K Relays. Leading the A's was outstanding trophy winner Daniel Crain, who scored 86 points for the season. Led by stars Pat VanZant, Frank Self, Howard Cox, "Dutch" Winburn, Fred Romero, and David Selzer, B's enjoyed a good season. ln dual meet competition they waxed Parlier 6l-29 and Cen- tral 6l-43. They were able to take third place in the Northern Sierra League Meet. For the second consecutive year the C team captured the Sierra Valley Championship. Only one defeat ruined a perfect season for the baby Tigers. In dual meets they swamped Parlier 573A- 28lAi, Laton 73-l3 and Central 73-l3. Going to the Atascadero Relays where they competed against l5 coastal schools, they dropped their only meet of the year to King City 33-32. Standouts for the C's were Victor Lopez, Terry VanZant, Johnny Ayerza, Frank Taylor, Robert Valdez, Jack Whitten, Leland Harralson, and Frank Reyna. ,, A ' .
