To the Students of Trona High School:
It gives me pleasure to congratulate you upon the completion of another successful
year. You not only have maintained the fine standards established by your predecessors, but
have set higher goals to challenge those to follow you.
Levels of scholarship and achievement continue to rise in Trona High School. An in-
creased eagerness to learn and higher standards of conduct are characteristic traits of this
present student body. It is thought by everyone who knows you that the sportsmanship
and quality of school spirit exhibited this year has been unsurpassed. These accomplish-
ments do not come easily. They are the products of correct attitudes, hard Work and de-
termination. I trust that students of future years will not permit a lessening of this steady
march of progress.
As you know, Dr. Freeman has not been able to be with you because of his continued
illness. I am certain he participates in spirit in the extending to you of greetings.

CLAIR E. FRANKLIN
To the Students of Trona High School:
XVe are striving to make our school, through the efforts of the board of trustees, the
administration, the faculty, and you the students, as great in magnitude and stability as
the subject of your Telescope theme-"The Solar System."
Your accomplishments in this year's Telescope far exceed the fruitful results of past
years, but we must keep in mind that you were working with experience gained by Tele-
scope builders of the past.
All people remotely connected with the 1953 edition of Trona High School's Memoirs
are to be congratulated. Use your Telescope in retrospection. It will bring many pleasant
memories of the years you spent in Trona High School.

Now that we Stars have lent our shrillianee to this solar system, we shall go on to greater heights--to
dazzle and awe others with our radiance. But before we streak into the heavens, we feel it is only right that
we sprinkle a little of our magic star dust on those left behind.
With fear and trepidation fneatly concealed by an air of cocky self-assurancej the Shooting Stars and
Comets and other heavenly bodies anticipate replacing with their small twinlzles the brilliance of the Stars.
So it is to them that we bequeath these fparkling attributes.

Since the aft of reading stars is such an exact
science, only experienced astronomers could come up
with the following predictions. QEven then the stars
came in a little faintly in some places, so they had to
be shined up a bit.j So with careful study and much
pondering, here is our version of things to come.
First of all, we see joe as president of the L.A.
Nuthouse. He picked up the necessary experience
when he was president of the Trona Student Body.
Pat Meyer is also putting to use her work at Trona
High. Only now instead of collecting roll sheets, she
is a copy girl for a newspaper and picks up all the dirt.
Barbara became such a good majorette in Trona
High School that she is turning out some marvelous
majorettes from "French's Fancy Prancing Schoolf'
Jerry Wilson, still waving his hands around, is
director of the Philharmonic Orchestra.
Also in the music department is Joe Ann Allen,
who teaches the new "l2 finger method" of piano
playing for those people blessed with extra digits.
Mal Stevens, still tootling away on his clarinet,
owns his own dance band with Patty Stevens working
for him. But instead of playing the piano, she sits
on it, singing torch songs.
june and Chuck have crashed the entertainment
business and are one of the greatest dance teams on
record-another Fred and Adele Astaire.
Connie is working on radio and T.V. as the Friday
noon guest speaker in "Relax for Lunch."
Special news bulletin from the stars! Margie Dill
has just been elected Queen of the Peanut Crop.
In the sports field john Tansley has received an-
other gold medal for World's Champion Racer.
Larry Knowles is running a sporting goods storeg
he finally became a pro.
Guess who's in the hospital resting his leg for the
big race. Yes, none other than-Jim Parks.
Since he had plenty of practice in his younger
days, Bill Weimer is a hot rod driver.
And Chuck Hardison has just won the national
championship for motor scooter racing. He is known
to be the fastest man on a scooter.
Oh, one more in the athletic fieldg jerry Bell is
head scorekeeper for the Los Angeles Rams. She picked
up her knowledge on the Trona football field.
Quite a few of the class of "SS" have put their
best assets to work.
One, Carol Akam, is a seamstress for a dress-

Darlene Kudlac, being the outdoor type, has fin-
ally worked up to head strawberry picker.
Gwenny has put her great athletic ability to work
and can be seen in the Baxter Brothers Circus as an
Bill Baldwin has his own barber shop and is spec-
ializing in the famous "Baldwin's Beauty" haircut.
After 10 years of toil, Leo received his optom-
etrist's license. He feels he is well qualified for this
job as he knows how it feels to be blind.
We find Carmen a contented housewife with six
kids and Spanish lessons in her spare time.
Through our telescope we view Gloria modeling
in Macy's Department Store. It's a little hazy, so we
can't tell what she's showing.
Satisfying a life-long ambition, Carol McCullough
is now nursing in an all-men's hospital.
Sylvia is also using her greatest asset. She is work-
ing in the zoo as a laughing hyena instructor.
. Quite a few of the seniors have been using one
of their Ynore noticeable ta.ents, talking.
Steve Walsh, rather Senator Walsh, has fulfilled
his wish and is talking inlfilibusters all day long. He
gained his experience in the Trona Student Council.
jim Hammond has talked himself into the job
of president of the Mine, Mill, and Smeller's Union.
And last but not least of the great talkers, Phil
Murrin is a famous soap box orator.
The black sheep of the crowd is Jack Myers who
is in jail for bigamy. He finally satisfied his desire for
ln the Brine Line of the Argonaut we see a few
announcements on the staff of APGICC.
New head clerk in the Trona Food Market is none
other than Jim Ewing, in charge particularly of dog
Dale Roberts has received a promotion into the
health department for his formula of "Rosie's Re-

since he is now as skinny as a rail.
Then there's Lee Robinson who was promoted to
head pin boy at the Trona Recreation Center.
Here's where a couple of the brains landed.
Pat Hess, with her vast knowledge of mathematics,
is counting bottle tops for the Coca Cola Company.
Because she always had a yen to run for things
Kathy is now up for election as dog catcher.
A few miscellaneous details we saw in the stars.
Betty Dilbeck, Hollywood playgirl, is now sport-
ing a different convertible for every outfit.
Off in the hills away from the noisy world we
find a quiet hermit, Grover Paine.
Out in ole New York Bob Gaska is trying to grow
oranges like those he was always eating in California.
Doris French is even further away in Africa look-
ing for her ancestor, the extinct Do-Do bird.
Marie and Doris Rich are still waiting for their
men. One has risen to an admiral and the other to a
general in the army. Poor girls.
Some of these stars are dim and some are bright,
but we're sure the Class of "SS" will be able to meas-
ure up to the twinklings mentioned here.

An innovation this year was song leaders who were elected
during basketball season. These four girls lliarbara French and
Dorothy Rhodes in the top left picture, and Sylvia Chavarria and
Margie Dill in the bottom right picturel accompanied the 'band and
whipped up enthusiasm. Their halftime and quarter routines did a
lat to add sparkle to the basketball games. lTheir pom-porn: added
little scraps of crepe paper to the floor, too, on several occasions
games were delayed while the harried officials doubled as ianitors.J

Trona High School are Betty Dilbeck, June Russell, and Bev Compton
lleft lc right in the top picturej, who served the senior high this
year. Betty and June will graduate this year, but Beverly will be
here next year to coach the incoming girls, These girls have sparked
interest and provided color for the athletic events.
For the second consecutive year Trona Junior High has had
its own cheerleaders. Jolene Swecringen, Chucky Beil, and Phyllis
Oswald Iseen in top right picture, left to rightl, spent o lot of time
and effort on cheers in order to lend at the iunior high and C
basketball games. Both the iunior and senior highs appreciate
these girls' poppy cheers.

Occasionally the stars in the sky are seen
through the T4'l1'x1'ojn' to leave their regular
positions and orhits, take on Ll new lustre,
and really make the heavens shine and dance.
ilihcse occasions occur roughly twelve times
each yenr. To record and keep truck of
these events, we have given each social high-
light ii sign and n symbol to correspond with
the time of oceurrnnce. These symbols, the
Signs of the Zodiac, are thus the social enl-
entlnr for the year.

SENIOR DITCH DAY
The seniors left for San Diego at 4 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11. They
were accompanied by their sponsors-Mr. Herkenhoff, Miss Anderson,
and Mr. Davis, who drove the bus. The first stop was the Summit where
the class ate breakfast. Upon arriving in San Diego, they checked into
the San Diego Hotel and then scattered for lunch and a little sightsee-
ing. At 2 p.m. they toured the San Diego Zoo and afterwards went out
to dinner and spent the evening either bowling, skating, or seeing a movie.

they waded on the beach and visited Scripps Institute of Oceanography.

They ate dinner in San Bernardino and arrived home about 10 p.m.,

TO TE' 1953 GRADUATING CLASS
Dear Senior Class:
just a note to convey our congratulations upon the occasion of
your graduation and a word about your future endeavors.
Our congratulations are given with considerable pride, since we
know most of you either because your parents work in our plant or be-
cause you have held a job with us sometime during your high school years.
Regarding your future careers, especially those of you who plan
to continue your educational preparation, we should like to direct your
attention to the extensive opportunities available to you in the chemical
industry, an industry whose products are basic to our national wealth.
Already established as one of the most rapidly expanding indus-
tries in the nation today, the chemical industry has need of a wide variety
of skills. The demand for chemists, chemical engineers, and physicists is,
of course, constant, but the rapid growth of the industry has also created
places for trained specialists in personnel work, labor relations, admin-
istration, safety, sales, and many other categories.
Regardless of whether or not you have already chosen a vocation,
we invite your investigation of the chemical industry as a field of sig-
nificant promise for the development of a rewarding career.
