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. '

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,
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
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.

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. Lloyd Shirley "rides herd" on TUHS lawns.

We sometimes get mad at our "foremen," who put us to work and keep us on the job day
after day. But theirs is a huge responsibility, teaching everyone the rudiments of knowledge growth,
and they deserve a good round of applause for it.
All in all they are a capable, efficient, and likeable bunch who strive to keep the ranch in
good working order, each in his own realm.

To get things rolling they gave a "l-lallowe'en" dance October 30 in honor ot the seniors
Wanting to raise money tor the prom, they sponsored a movie January I4 and then started o Carn-

Chapter l44c California Scholarship Federation, though small in number both semesters,
worked hard to raise money through hot dog and soft drink concessions. This money was used at the
end of the year to award scholarships to deserving individuals.
Dancing, a scavenger hunt, and a waffle supper highlighted the one party the "intellect-
uals" managed to crowd into their busy schedules.
The school's other honor society, Quill and Scroll, had a hard time functioning, with only
two members. Jim Bell and James Story, editors of the Hi-Lite and Tule respectively, were the only
persons qualified for membership in the organization.

Although the Tigers won only two games during football season, they displayed good sports-
manship in every game they played. 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.

Varsity Is Hard Luck Team:
finishes Season in Third
Tranauillity's varsity was truly a hard luck team.
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.

Defending Chamnions Tie League Crown
Shortstap Tony Guardado leaps high into the air and
tires the ball to tirst for a double play as second
baseman John Strange looks on.
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.
Outtielders Bill White, Kenneth Mancini, John Horn, Caroll
Horn, and Jerry McDonald pause in practice.
Six moundsmen warm up their throwing arms: Eddie
Anderson, Carlos Gonzales, Jock Hubbard, Curtis

Although only C's cap-
tured Valley Championship,
the l954 track season was
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.
Bunched up at the start ot this Sierra cross country race, these distance
men later thinned out. Tranquillity won the race as o who.e.
