Standing from left to right are: Mrs. Earl Knowles, Mrs. Ada Wellbaum, Mrs. W.
Bock, Mrs. Margaret Bernhardi, and Mr. C. E. Haley, the Advisory Committee. Seated
we find from left to right: Mr. John Marshall, Dr. Leo W. Briggs, Mrs. Ruth Leete,
Mr. Irvin A. Shimmin, Mr. C. C. Jones, and Mr. Myron K. Naef, Board of Trustees.
The year of 1949-50 has been a golden
year. Many of our dreams for our school
have been realized. With added faculty,
more working space, and better equipment
we have been able to more adequately meet
the needs of our girls and boys.
More school buildings are necessary. We
believe in our Trona youth and we desire
to give them a program of joy and one of
effectiveness, so that when they go from this
school they will not only cherish fond mem-
ories, but will be well equipped to succeed.
Congratulations and best wishes go with
the members of the graduating class. This
community has given them much. We trust
they will pay their debt to Trona by being
useful, upright citizens in the communities
of their choice.
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Mr. Irvin A. Shimmin
To the Telescope Staff :
You, the Editor, the members of the
Annual Staff, and the Faculty Advisor have
challenged yourselves with a great under-
taking. We compliment and congratulate
you on co-ordinating the various activities
of our Trona High School, depicting class
and outside-of-class functions, recording
and portraying events Which exemplify the
spirit and loyalty of our student body, and
co-operating with and mustering the sup-
port of our devoted citizens and patrons.
Only by planning with a high purpose and
by respecting our human and natural re-
sources can We enlist the support of all.
It is with appreciation for the honest
efforts of our students that we wish you
and the graduating seniors every success.
The skill developed by working together will
make our next steps more confident ones.

looking for Joe With Eileen Robinson, Junior Representative, peering
over her shoulder. There's Ronnie Holliman, among the girls as usual,
in front of secretary Dorothy DeYoung. Old Eagle Eye Clair Franklin
is hovering over the group and President Al Holliman in the rear. Treas-
urer Val Pipkin is smiling around Vice-President Don Freeman. Bill
Sisco is showing off his tooth-paste smile in front of Pat Finnelly.
Bill Johnson, Sophomore Representative, and Joe Pastrone, Ninth

The "General Foremen,', farniliarly known as "Seniors," have com posed a will leaving

It is the philosophy of our company to reward work well done. For the outstanding
services rendered during the preceding twelve years, the following employees are to he com-
mended and promotions shall he presented accordingly.
M. Charles Robinson is to be promoted from
Chief English Literature ham to the writer, producer,
director, and star of Shakespeare's Hamlet, renamed
Rosemarie Wheeler, having completed her appren-
ticeship in "Patty's Petite Paintshop," will assume her
duties as head house painter for all of Searles Valley.
As "Hughie" Hugh McPhail was recently elected
the Valley's top Singing Pinboy, it is only fitting that
he be promoted to foreman of the Union of Singing
It is well that Alvin Holliman has had practice
in leadership for his future position shall be one of
great importance: control of all ditch, trench, and
In order that the Trona paper might be of more
value to our personnel, we have assigned Cecilia Du-
vall to gather and arrange all unnecessary news.
It is with gre-at pleasure that we announce that
a successful business transaction has been completed
by Ray Bell. He has sold his bike, this feat has earned
him a high position on our sales staff.
Because of his great bulk and lack of pecuniary
comprehension, joseph Henry Ellis shall take over as
sergeant-at-arms at the newly built Trona Theater.
It is with due regard to the graying of Dorothy
DeYoung's golden locks fbecause of her never-ending
behind-the-counter worriesj, that we have promoted
her to Recreational Secretary.
It is with great regret that we demote Mr. George
Pilcher to "first clarinet" and it is with equal rejoic-
ing that we promote Miss Marybelle Egge to Band
Barbara May shall be promoted to thirty-third
vice-president in charge of Public Relations in view
of the fact that she has proved herself in the field
Bob Parks was unanimously voted "model of the
year." He looked so sweet in "That little shirt that
Mother made for me."
During the course of years Donald Freeman has
ably proved himself in the fields of butchering, re-
tailing, and leadership in interscholastic organizations.
Consequently he is to receive the title and job of
"Chief Cook and Bottle Washer."
Miss Joyce Clark having ably conducted herself
in all plant tours shall now take over and be given an
assistant, Art Lewis. Her tour shall be called the
Lewis and Clark expedition.
Jerry Wallace has been transferred to the Stude-
baker Corporation of America as chief breaker-in of
A special position has been created for Aloha
Hunter. Miss Hunter will spend her time knitting
argyles to be worn by the Trona Tigers.
One of our most efficient secretaries has been
moved up to assistant Recreation Director. Janice

sence to return to THS to be Girls' League president.

employees of APBZCC.
Clarence Pitt because of his outstanding mechan-
ical ability has been placed in charge of repairing the
bicycles, tricycles and Taylor Tots on Verbena Street.
Rosie MacGavin and her Saxy Seven have been
hired to replace the Prospectors for all Club Dances.
After apprenticing for the last 12 years, the Man-
agement has unanimously promoted Hugh Anderson
to "Diesel Repairer."
' The future job of Marlene Casey shall be complete
Coffee Shop Manager. The management hopes she
will refrain from serving tea and toast as the main
menu too frequently.
Because of his undying faithfulness and patience
Louis Lopez shall receive his diploma and hearty con-
gratulations from the faculty of Trona High School.
Miss Arlene Harrison shall be promoted from
extra curricular pupil to kindergarten teacher-in
charge of the boys, of course.
While on an expedition, Deacon Lewis went down
in the cellar to pray. Since he has yet to return, we
find it impossible to promote him at this time.
