THE lllll FIVE
Supreme authority in all local school affairs is our
school board. Though unobserved by most of us in the daily
buzz of school activity, its efforts keep Trona High the
smooth functioning institution that it is.
To these who serve in silence, a twenty-one gun salute!

TO THE CONGRESS"
The 1945-46 school session has been
a rather momentous period in the six year
life of Trona High School. Initiated in its
first full year by World War ll, students
and graduates of Trona High School
served their nation well during the war-
time period. With the ending of hostilities
in '45, we are anticipating outstanding
achievement in a world at peace.

Tronas council members begsm
their efforts early in the yen' by
revising the merit plan and carried
through their respective te-rms of
office with equal efficiency. The
cornerstone of student government,
the council is responsible for the
majority of the pleasures of school
life which include: Homecoming,
The St. Patrick's Dance, The Sadie
Hawkins Dance, The Water Carni-
val, and a number of other dances
The Merit Board takes care of the policing of our high school. To
this body come the complaints, the accusations, and the grumbling. They
also have the more pleasant task of giving out merits to those who have
earned them. The Merit Board is an important part of the system of checks
and balances of our school government.

CLYDE BU RTONn-"Clyde
It was a beautiful summer's day in the
Capitol and Harry Steger, one-time presi-
dent of the Senior Class of 1946 and now
Senator from Missouri, was b r o w s i n g
through his library at the Capitol. "This
was just the sort of day that we graduated
on back in '46 in good old Trona. Golly
we sure had fun back in those days. When
I think of all of the kids and of all the
different ways they have gone in life, it
sure brings back memories. Why I re-

were ALL Senators in our yearbook. Think
of that! Some of them had gone to Trona
all their lives, others, just as much a part
of the class, had come later. Let's see here,
I think I have some old annuals showing
when they all came. Oh yes, here they
"Seven old salts started out the class
way back in '35, with a starting line-up
of artist and would-be editor, Valerie Anne
Gale, 'never dreaming that they would
someday be football heroes,' Rupert Black-
mun and Paul Haughton, 'ham' Gloria Mc-
Nabola, lanky Wesley Colony, and two of
the 'roundestf curly-haired brothers around
those parts, Frank and Johnny G a r c i a.
What a crew! Ah yes, those were the days,
Kindergarten. Then in the first grade that

Washington, to fascinate all of them with
her Scottish dances.
"It seems they all went along pretty
good with no mishaps except that Wes
Colony went out for three years to military
academy, returning in the sixth grade with
new students Betty Niemeyer and Clyde
Burton from Johannesburg and Inyokern
"The next year-ah yes-I arrived. It
wasn't much of a change from Inyokern
in respect to scenery, but I soon became
'one of the gang,' tearing up the old school-
house with the rest of them. Un fact the
next year they had to build a new 0ne.j
Cute Barbara Bishop came that year too,
from Lake Hughes, to add to the fun.
Glo Mc went out this year to St. Bernar-
dine's, coming back in the seventh. No
new students came during the seventh grade.
"The next year, eighth grade, we moved
to the new 'green schoolhouse' and it took
about the whole year to get settled. Then
the ninth grade was livened up with the
arrival of two of the slickesr chicks we had
seen in a long time, little Mary Hurlpcker
from Minnesota and songbird Lois Wilson
from Lancaster, and a very shy boy fwe
thoughtj, Eddy Downs from Inyokern.
"Then when we were 'Sophs' two more
of our feminine members joined our ranks,
the girls being green-eyed Jo Porter, an-
other songstress fof the long line of sing-
ing Portersj from Inyokern also, and artis-
tic Gloria Cavazos from Nuevo Leon, Mex-
ico. Johnny and Frank spent this year in
Los Angeles, and Wes Colony became a
farmer for a year over in Kernville. All
three of them returned to Trona in their
"The next year, our Junior year, is the
one we'll never forget. That was the year
of our 'Great Prom,' and also that was the
year that we had the largest class that we
had ever had, having forty members.
"Although the great majority of the
new students left after the year was out,
four of the swellest kids, ever, stayed with
us: George Law, star athlete, from Wash-
ington, D. C., Lee Stoiser, future fur
trapper, from O-hio, Fred Smith, the next
year's Student Body president, from Lone
Pine, and golden-haired Liz Richmond, who
arrived in February from Pasadena, but who
was better known as 'Arizonaf This year

"THE UNANIMOUS DECLARATION OF THE
TWENTY-TWO SENIORS OF 1946"
"When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for
one people to dissolve the educational bonds which have connected them
with another and to assume among the other powers of the earth, the
separate and equal station to which the laws of Nature and a diploma
entitle them, a decent respect for tradition requires that they should
write a will.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
equal, hut are endowed hy their Creator with certain characteristics,
that among these are hack teeth, purple eyes, and peroxide hair. That
to secure these rights, wills are written by Senior classes giving their
said powers UQ for the use of the juniors.
"Let this will he submitted to the candid world!"

I, Rupert Blackmun, leave to Gene Mc-
Kinney, my peroxide bottle, so he Won't
have to borrow it anymore.
"And so ladies and gentlemen this ends the weekly broadcast of
'Science for Tomorrowf Be listening next week for ou-r new show."
As the announcer signs off, Professor Franklin snaps of his radio and
picks up his WASHINGTON D. C. BUGLE. The first article that
catches his eye, is written by his old student Lois Wilson. It looks
interesting so he reads on:
WlLSON'S WASHINGTON WANDERINGS
"In my wanderings around Washington
last night I came upon a campaign ban-
quet for 'Honest Blackmun' who is run-
ning for the Senatorship of Arkansas. The
banquet was held in the famous '400 Club.'
Also present was Senator Clydhorn Burton
from the deep South. fThe south that is.j
"He had just sent the waiter out for
another Dixie-cup of Cotton Gin. Among
the celebrities present was Patsy Dorward,
famed photographer of the world. She was
snapping pictures for the magazine 'Demo-
crat' which will have accompanying each
picture a caricature drawn by that popular
artist Gloria Cavazos. A loud fanfare on
the trumpet from Frank Garcia announced
Harry Tyrone Stcger, who was Toastmaster
for the evening. He introduced candidate
George Law who is running for Congress
on a Football Ticket.
"Law's speech was interrupted by a loud
'burp' from the corner which announced
the presence of Paul Haughton, owner of
the club, who was reclining at his desk
enveloped in a cloud of smoke coming from
his huge black stogie. The smoke blackened
the beautiful tapestries and pictures hang-
ing around him. The room was beautifully
done by interior decorator Valerie Gale.
She began work today on the home of
former Liz Richmond, wife of the Secretary
of the Navy. Frantically taking notes on
the speeches was Mary Hurlocker, who is
the President's secretary.
"Law, in his speech denounced Wes
Colony who is running for Dictator under
Boss Downs of the Bronx. Downs was
present with gun moll Betty Niemeyer.
"The toastmaster then introduced that
nightingale of the air waves, Jo Porter.
Miss Porter has made a definite place for
herself in the bright spots of New York
and made a personal appearance as a favor
to the campaign committee.
"I noticed a periscope sticking around
the corner, and following it up I found,
none other than Pati Marshi, notorious spy
of the '60's'. Hearing a crash I turned
to see a large bundle of fur pelts coming
through the door, which had just knocked
over a table. The pelts drop and we see
Lee Stoiser, who started his trapping ca-
reer in Trona.
An important announcement was made
at this time. The Kentucky Derby winner
was B. B. B., owned by prominent southern
horsewoman, Barbara Bishop. This is Miss
Bishop's third winner.
"After this announcement I wandered
on around the room. Much to my surprise
I came upon Dr. Fred Smith reading a new
novel based on the life of Tailspin Tommy.
Dr. Smith was diligently studying a de-
scription of Tommy's new way to come
out of a power dive. As I went on my way
out of the club a flash passed me. The
flash turned out to be none other than
Gloria McNabola. There she was again
gathering plates for a b a n q u e t. She
gathered them off the table quickly, and
dashed out for they must be on another
banquet table in 15 minutes. This finished
my wanderings a r o u n d Washington last
night. I'll see you again tomorrow in my
Our school song is our pride. lt was written for us by two
of our fathers-Lynn Blackmun and the lclfe Earl Olberg.
"THE BLUE AND WHITE TORNADOESH
"The Blue and White Tornado gang is
on the move today,
"The tenderfoot will surely learn to stay
out of its Way.
"The boys and girls of Trona High will
cheer their favoritels play,
"And when the team comes on the field
they'll all stand up and say:
"Here come the Blue and White Tornadoes,
"Here come the sons of Trona High
"With colors flying and hearts undying,
"They will surely do or die.
"Come on and fight, fight, fight for Trona,
"The Blue and White are up to stay,
Come on Tornadoes, come on Tornadoes,
"We know you'll clean the field today.

Latin American Relations
The battlefields of Caesar and the
obscure ways of the subjunctive mode
again provided the customary be-
wilderment for Latin students. Mr.
Rafferty and class are shown pur-
suing the Romans through the Gallic
Senor Rafferty and an unusually
large Spanish class spent a busy year
among their verbs and vocabulary.
W'hile the "good neighbor policy"
was not allowed to extend to looking
on other's papers, nevertheless these
students have learned something of
cementing Pan-American relations.
Constitutional freedom of speech
was guaranteed this year by a new
class, public speaking. Debates, round-
table discussions, and contest speeches
formed the plan of action-subjects
ranged from "Discipline in Trona
High School" to "Resolved: Wonien
Are Smarter Than Men." '
Bureau of Historic Research
livery student g r a d ua te s from
Trona High with a thorough knowl-
edge of the history of his country and
government. The reason for this may
be seen by the accompanying glimpses
of Miss Stewart's American History
and Civics Class.
Shakespeare shuddered and Keats
and Shelley whirled in their respec-
tive graves when the English Liter-
ature elass took over last fall. But by
means of Orson Welles' phonograph
records and Mr. Rafferty's enthusi-
astic leadership, these students gained
a very real appreciation for the ling-
Bureau of Biological Survey
Major operations on frogs and
countless drawings to be done kept
biology students out of mischief this
year. Mr. lfranklin and friends went
deep into the mysteries of the life
sciences and split bugs. if not atoms,
in their research.
Bureau of Weights and Measures
Students of Physics will all agree
that the chapters, the tests, the term
papers, and the problems were, after
all, worth it. Mr. Franklin says that
he offers an actual college-type course
and any one of his students will back
him up. Physics was more than just a
year of hard work - it was also
arranging the displays for Public
Schools Week, it was the Physics Club
with a wonderful trip to Los Angeles.
Bureau of Invesfigafion
Solid Geometry was really solid this
year. Mr. Weymouth and friends,
armed with slide rule and answer-
book, dug deep into the mysteries of
numbers, known and unknown.
Bureau of Design
Art this year consisted mainly of
different types of craft ranging from
finger-painting through stencil cut-
ting and leather-work to stage make-
up. Craft prizes at the Public Schools
Week exhibit were won by Nadine
Bishop, Richard Goss, and Gloria
Bureau of Commerce

dreamed up by perspiring students of
Gregg shorthand, but before the year

COINIIIX SLIPCI'-SCC FCILIFICS.
Bureau of Statistics
Bookkeeping students hired out
again this year to that famous and
mysterious employer, "R, A. Wtilkei"',
in order to keep his boolts, Through
the maze of balance sheets, debits,
miscellaneous, current entries, and
prepaid insurance, they plodded. to
balance their edueations, if not their
hooks, at last.
Bureau of Sfenography
The claek of lteys, the sound of
groans, and the rattle of paper going
into the wasteluaslset were common
noises heard coming from the door of
the typing room during this school
year. Students avowed that someone
should teach typing machines to spell,
hut finally admitted that the fault
was more usually the operator's, rather
than the machine's. Mary Hurlocker
placed highest in the speed contests
held for Public Schools' NY'eelt.
Bureau of Home Economics
Miss Marjorie Havens and an eager
group of students spent a busy year
in cooking and sewing as part of their
work. They offered a fashion show,
a cake and pie contest, and an exhibit
in cable setting for Public Schools'
Bureau of Construction
Classes in wood shop and engine-
shop under Mr. F r a n k lin offered
plenty of interest to T. H. S. boys.
Besides the building of stage sets for
play and pageant, a number of odd
construction jobs were handled by
these boys. Also, work on private
cars formed part of the curriculum.
Bureau of Engraving
Mechanical Drawing is n subject
that can't be just skimmed through.
That's what these boys learned from
Mrs. Lois Pratt. Meticulous care and
patience were displayed by tricky
inking and the constant necessity of
a true eye. These boys will tell you,
it's no easy subject.

The most important business around T. H. S., next to getting "edi-
cated," is raising money. Most industrious classes along this line are the
Juniors and Seniors who raise tremendous amounts each year for the ti-
nancing of the Junior Prom and the annual. At the head ot the Treasury
Dept. is Helen Wacher, student body treasurer, who has had many a head-
ache over missing pennies. She is seen at the upper right with Mr. Wey-
mouth, treasury advisor, and Ted Meyer, treasury assistant. At the middle
and lower right the Senior food sales and Junior pop stand, respectively.

One of the most spectacular assemblies of the
year was the biggest "organized brawl" seen
around these parts, which was put on under the
sponsorship of the Varsity Club. Amid squeals of
fright and laughter, the feminine and not so am-
bitious members of the Student body watched the
"muscle men" of the school fight it out in some of
the bloodiest battles ever held.
Two of the sluggers for the day were, in the
upper left-hand corner, bully "Hendricks" Hillier
and the Frosh Prexy, Bob Smith, with the outcome
being a tie. Then we have in the upper right-hand
corner, the two fightingist half-pints in the school,
"Molecule" Russell and Patrick Delavan, with this
bout also ending in a tie. ln the lower left-hand
corner, Mike Robinson and Ed Frenyea added to
the excitement, but their efforts only ended in a
tie also. The Senior terror, Frank Garcia and the
Junior representative, Bob Law fought it out in a
battle to finish with Hank coming out on top. The
two smallfry in the middle were the V.C.'s can-
didates for the fleaweight title, but it was left
undecided when it ended in a tie.
lncidentally, the guy in the striped shirt isn't
a refugee from Sing-Sing, it's just Fred Smith,
referee for the clay.
The Physics Club raised a little revenue for itself early in the year with
an "Electric Show" given by Mr. Bernard Strickfaden. Degravitation,
high voltage, and phosphorescence were all part of the show. Results:
fun for the public, S80 for the Physics Club.

Here's a pictorial review of the annual G. A. A. assembly as recorded
by the "photogs". ln the top left hand corner "Myrtle the Maid" watches
tour cards deal out fifty-two other ones in a game entitled "lf Men Played
Cards as Women Do." Another candid of the card table appears at the
upper right. At the lower lett the "all amusing," if not All American G. A. A.

G. A. A. prexy, Jonell Lines.
One of the most spectacular assemblies yet staged at T. H. S. was the
seniors' annual dramatic effort. Although not "dramatic" in the strict sense
of the word, this assembly was acclaimed all that and more soon after
hypnotist Howard Snyder went into his act. In the upper left corner
MacGavin unknowingly disclaims T.H.S. for Bishop High. Lower left:

audience. "Iron Beam Delevan" gets a test of tensile strength from Liz

There would be no sitting down for student body members if the
"Chairmen's Union", pictured above, ever went on strike! The union,
headed by Michael Robinson, has served silently? and well in putting up
chairs for our assemblies during the past session. Pictured with them is
Assembly Chairman, Liz Richmond.

"Christmas Around the World" was the theme for the
annual Christmas Pageant this year. Music, furnished by
glee clubs ot the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades, the primary
grades and the high school, carried out the theme with
carols from Holland, Spain, Germany, and Great Britain.
Various scenes from the "Christmas Pictures" book are shown
at right. At the top, the cover opened between scenes by
angels Marion Steger and Holly Hurlocker. ln the middle,
the traditional Nativity with Helen Wacher as Mary and
Rupert Blackmun as Joseph. Below: The High School Glee
Club typities the carolers of England. ln between, high
school students work on the elaborate sets.
The most chilling play yet produced at T. H. S.
was that presented this year, John Willardls famous
thriller, "The Cat and the Canary." The hidden panels in
each of the three acts kept audiences in suspense at the
two evening performances on April 12th and 13th and
brought squeals of terror from school students at the
matinee. Memorable moments were provided by heroine,
Gloria McNabola. and leading man, Pat Delavan. None
of us will forget too soon the mysterious characterization
of "Mammy Pleasant", enacted by Iois Lyons, the flighty
frankness of Mary Hurlocker as "Aunt Susan Sillsbyf'
the sarcastic comments of Bobby Payne nor the enter-
tainment provided by Carol Peterson, Kenny Hillier,
Bobby Todd, as the mad murderer, and Larry Reeves'
corpse-like appearance as "Mr. Crosby." Make-up was
handled by Mrs. Pratt, sound effects by Donald Carey,
lighting by Lee Stoiserg stage management by Mr. Frank-
lin, and direction by Mr. Rafferty.

One of the "moola-making" events staged by the Seniors was the
"Senior Carnival" in January. All the usual gyps as well as a few new

a lot of fun in return. At top: A few merry-making males caught waiting

dances staged with an eye toward
money as well as merriment! "Girl
