W f. WW 1 , Y eh The circle is the main entrance to our expanding school, Bids are to be opened in 1955 for more additions in the form of a high school administration office and homemaking department, which will consist of separate cooking and sewing rooms and a living room. Rooms for the principal, vice-principal, dean of girls, a waiting room and secretary's office, and a lounge will comprise the office. "Real cool!',, "Crazy!", "Gone!" rang out as you pushed your way through the halls of old THS. This is the version of jive talk that has swept the nation. No more do you hear U23 skidooli' or "Oh, you kid," but slang still expresses the youth and vitality of teen-agers in America. It also typifies the 1953-54 school year, perhaps because the seniors particularly latched on to the latest bebop and made good use of it. The Telescope staff considers these ample reasons for picking "Bopland" the theme for this annual. The primary purpose of a theme is to give the book unity. It ties together the sections, pictures, and copy so they give a complete and coherent picture of a particular school year. We think "Bopland" will fill the bill. Take a gander at the "Cats" on the end sheets, the "Big Wheels," and the mob at the Snack Shack on a typical school day. We guarantee a flood of memories when you open this book in five years! Table 0 Introduction . . . Classes ..... School Life .... Athletics ..... Snaps and Ads . . The gym and a section of the new wing was shot from the football field. De- signed by Mr Balch and constructed by the Beggs Co., this wing includes two eighth grade classrooms and an art section composed of a large drawing room. a modeling platform a. stock room and a pottery room. Built to the tune of S84,997, the buildings were ready Monday November 30 1953. Who's taken the most interest in school lately? The Quarterback Club, of course. In recognition the Telescope staff dedi- cates to them the 1954 annual. Since its organization in November, 1952, the Quarterback Club has devoted itself to promoting and supporting all activities of THS. Led by Charles Paine, Charles Bell, Kenneth Bell, and Frank Hanket, the Quarterbackers erected poles and lights on the football field. These men were awarded lifetime mem- berships in the QB Club and lifetime passes to all THS athletic events. A scoreboard for the field was purchased by the club and installed by village maintenance on their own time under the direction of Scotty Ross. At all home football games QB members helped CSF girls sell tickets. Plans are being made to put in portable grandstands. But first comes a fence enclosing the field. Most important, though, was the infec- tious Quarterback spirit that spearhead- ed the wholehearted support of the whole town. At home or away, win or lose, the Quarterbacks were there-and always in good voice. Yr S 'S-29 Little cogs need big wheels to keep them on the right track. In an engine the cogs keep the wheels turning, but in T.H.S. the wheels do the spinning. lt's positively amazing how much work goes to keep a school running. And just think: we wouldn't have school with- out it . . . the nurse as readily washing cuts as splinting arms . . . the superintendent shouldering responsibility for the entire school . . . the secretaries hopping from typewriter to filing cabinet to adding machine . . . the board favoring us by hiring such fine teachers . . . the faculty yakking away, unbowed and undaunted . . . the student council remedying student gripes . . . the principal and his right hand man wielding the big stick . . . their secretary passing out stencils, staplers, tacks, and information to desperate students . . . the custodians sweeping, straightening, and smiling . . . and the bus drivers beating the same old path day by day. l Z 5 1 v4 ZA k l M-'FL' 'J f mx Q9 X li,- YV! k f fwfjrxlp w, f M 'u 4 'WW X4 K H I NN N 'V4 'VJ 4, gx h x K K' 'X x M 6 9 Wfw 'W1 'f?3f 5 Qfgb N X Wx 'M"1f14f .

We now have a new art room and two new eighth grade classrooms. In the elementary school a new wing of classrooms and a modern office were added. Work started this spring on a new home economics roomg the plan is to turn the present homemaking room into a mechanical drawing room. Another important addition was the lights on the football field. The Quarterback Club furnished the labor and the poles while the Board shared in the purchase of the lights. The Westend Chemical Co., AP8zCC, and the California Electric Power Company contributed too. Other changes incl d d u e switching to a seven-period day, raising the number of units for graduation, providing a trip for the junior high band, and ap- B k r proving "B" football for next year.

Office ,-44 mae' Central office is the center of all activities in our school. Both the elementary and the high school offices are connected through the central office by a unique chain of command. The Board of Trustees is elected by the voters in this community. The Board and the superin- tendent Work together in handling all the district's affairs and problems. Also in the central office . . H. is a staff of workers who handle the typing, 1 ing, correspondence, and many other very important details. Both the principal of the elementary school and the principal of the high school report to the superintendent. Vice-principals and faculty mem- bers go to the principalsg the faculty works directly with the students. ' Requisitions for all school purchases are pro- cessed through the central office. Thus purchases are coordinated in as efficient and economical a manner as possible and is the reason the Board has not needed to raise the local tax rate. Mr. Montgomery is the coordinator of all these activities. Besides, he hires faculty and other per- sonnel, supervises both the high school and ele- mentary curriculums, and coordinates their pro- grams. Assisting Mr. Montgomery are the central office personnel-Miss Christy, Mrs. Wheeler, Miss French, and Mrs. Semore.

Often the student council found more than enough to do during their weekly meetings. Collectively and individually the members settled disputes between classes, prepared advertising for all school activi- ties, kept a record of the sports, arranged dances, assemblies, and elections, and con- trolled thc student body money. Money was the usual big problem, but after 13 years as sponsor, Mr. Franklin was well equipped with answers. In order to put out a better Telescope, it was excluded from the student body card and sold sep- arately. For the first time the student body cards had pictures on them. Returns from 1953 football games were sufficient to pay all sports expenses. The Snack Shack brought up the problem of, "Who sells what?'l With the classes' approval the Look at that money! And it all came under the jurisdiction of Cl'l'0l'S. Darlene Bell, treasurer, and Nancy Read, assistant treasurer fleftb. These girls counted the money, paid the bills, issued purchase or- ders, signed checks, and kept the books - including hunting for Writing - in the form of notes, minutes, and letters - along with other odd jobs kept Secretary Pat Finnelly Cbelowy busy.

Decorating for the Halloween Dance, Social Chairman Carolyn Bell tnext to ladder, aboveb is as- sited by Carol Fugere, Judy Lane, and Lois Pratt. Carolyn, as social chairman, assigned organizations to dances and assisted with all. Lining the field for every foot- ball game is no joke according to Dickie John, athletic chairman, who has George Sherman as string holder trightl. Also under his du- ties is keeping a record of all games. ' az ileenrn Pi ,Q council s decision was: Juniors continue to sell ice cream, seniors may have the pack- aged and canned goods sale. Among the miscellaneous problems of the council were choosing song leaders, approving the social calendar, and pushing the sale of season tickets. Because of the increase in enrollment, the council voted to have the seventh and eighth grades elect their own publicity and social chairmen and plan their own social calendar. Every time the council appropri- ated money for a senior high dance, the junior high received an equal amount. Membership and interest were stimu- lated in the California Association of Stu- dent Councils by attendance at the district and regional meetings where kinks in the work of self-government were ironed out. One of the most profitable district meets was held at Needles March 6. Receiving pointers from Mr. Franklin, sponsor, are the class representatives, who keep the classes informed and who tell the council what the students want.

Franklin Principal a4aaZ0,ee The humming activity created by 360 students was handled by several groups. To Principal Clair E. Franklin came the headaches of complete supervision in all aspects of curricular and extra-curricular activities. He had confabs with the seniors, checking credits and handing out counsel on jobs and colleges. When a parent had a question, Mr. Franklin had or found an answer. Straightening out disputes be- tween students was a delicate accomplish- ment. The whole school environment also came under his jurisdiction. Any mainten- ance worries were reported to his boss, Superintendent Montgomery. The man who untangled the strings in Helena A. Stark Secretary -199 B. Hunter Vice Principal Mr. Franklin's absence was Vice Principal Joe B. Hunter. Another title he earned was athletic director. In that line he labored long and hard as football and baseball coach. Boys' and occasionally girls' discip- line was a big worry for him. Mr. Hunter was the attendance officer, reporting to the state the absences and the reasons. The testing program, including development and aptitude tests, was assigned to him. Their secretary, Mrs. Stark, presided over the high school office. She ruled over the office practice girls, teaching them the fundamentals of efficient office work. In between times she took dictation, sent out correspondence, and did the typing. Every Coila E, Swearingen School Nurse Nellie D. Adams Seventh Grade . . agp? day a bulletin had to be typed, dittoed, and filed. When some wild-eyed student rushed in for a ditto or stencil, a special kind of paper, staples, scotch tape, or advice, Mrs. Stark helped the unfortunate creature. "Need a band aid? Run up to the nurse's office." Besides, fixing up scratches, cuts, and slivers, Nurse Coila Swearingen watched over all public health cases in her position as county nurse. She also helped give physicals and eye and ear tests. Afterwards Mrs. Swearingen made records of everyone's condition and sent notices to parents if their children needed clinic Vernon A. Fagin Seventh Grade ' s custodians repaired, built, and cleaned with regular efficiency. "Slim" Roberson tack- led the maintenance problem while other custodians were responsible for a special part of the school. Mrs. Semore ordered equipment, wrote letters, and had charge of the interminable paper work. The four bus drivers and their one substi- tute, Mrs. Hagar, traveled many miles a day bringing students to and from school. Along with these everyday trips, a bus was run for G. A. A., band practice, football, baseball, and basketball trips, junior high dances and parties. Bill McCauley managed Cafe.

Coy Instrumental Music acaftq Did Besides beating a few facts through thick skulls, the faculty spent many long and weary hours sponsoring the extra curricular activities which transformed school from the grind of study. Coaches showed up every day after school and some weekends to groom the boys into condition. Many miles were covered to play a game and many words of encouragement and advice were ut- tered by worn-out coaches. One big job the faculty performed was sponsoring a club or extra-curricular ac- tivity. The assignment to the Telescope entailed spending tedious hours after school and on weekends helping lay out, giving suggestions, and answering in- numerable questions. To C.S.F., G.A.A., Douglas J.

To come up with good speeches and plays pupils have to be coached. How to deliver this line, make that gesture, or gain poise were questions of everyone who stood on the stage. Lots of outside activities accompanied those in the music field. Training for contests, learning new formations, and perfecting a new number were rigorous for the kids but even more so for the teacher. The chorus gained a big place in the music interests of the school by the exertions of their director. All the faculty had their full share of chaperoning dances and standing yard duty. Ricardo J.

Another project which brought profits for the class was selling birthday and get- well cards. The money was put to good use when the juniors put on the Prom in honor of the graduating class. Lois Pratt was general chairman of the dinner and dance with the mothers of the students lending able assistance.

This year's class swung the ninth consecutive Ball with dough brought in from the football concession. Glistening silver bells in every nook and cranny shed a soft glow over the dancers gliding to "Pug" Pi1cher's music. Punch, cupcakes, and bell-shaped ice cream gave the faculty, seniors, juniors, sophs and their guests some more energy. With the assistance of Judy Klein, Social Chairman Clova Compton kept all the de- tails and workers in line. Dickie John was so carried away with enthusiasm he fell out of the tree without getting the mistletoe! To earn the moola for the fling, everyone pitched in to sell hot dogs, coffee, and pop at the football games. Mr. Wilkinson and Miss Anderson put in a helping hand when the crowds, which were the biggest in Trona history, became too demanding. On the first of April the sophs tore open the boxes and grabbed the rings which had been ordered in October. In order to pay off the debts incurred in making the Ball a success, the sophs took turns providing basketball goers with do- nuts and coffee at a small fee. fd L .--.,,L. .. '.

This year the eighth grade was divided into three sections with Miss Bright sponsoring one, Mr. Barnes in charge of another, and Mr. Rasines heading the third group. The eighth grade was very active during the school year and participated in all activ- ities they could, setting a good example for the future classes.

The boys in the eighth grade, along with some seventh grade boys made up the heavyweight and lightweight basketball teams. Because of the eagerness and interest these boys showed, the team had much inter-school competition and made several trips out of town to play. Their big money-making project was selling fudge at home football and basketball games. This activity proved very profitable for all three sections. J' l 'f , . The different sections elected offi- cers for their own group and some- times had their own parties. Being separated from the senior high, they elected their own social chairmen and put on dances and parties for the jun- ior high school students.

The highlights of our social season are pictured above in a calendar as tra- ditional as the activities. The first Friday in September old and new students turned out in full force to break the ice at the annual lce Breaker. Then in October junior high ghouls and goblins gathered for a Halloween costume ball. Homecoming had a thrill for all. Sus- pense filled the air until the identity of the Homecoming Queen was revealed. For- mals, dates, and after-the-dance doings were the chief topics among the girls be- fore the Christmas Ball, the peak of the winter season. To start the New Year right, socks with lights, faces, and clashing colors bright- ened the Sok Hop. Valentine's, St. Pat- rick's, and Spring Dances were fitting preludes to the gala Junior-Senior Prom in May.

Without Ruth's and Dorothy's vigorous per- formances much enthusiasm for the band's pep tunes would be lost. Most of the pep and spirit of our athletic events was centered on our cheerleaders and songleaders. This was only the second year in our school that we have had song- leaders, but the cheerleaders have been a regular tradition for many years. Leading the songs to the music of our high school band were Dorothy Rhodes, Ruth Lopez, and Nola Mund. Nola left, however, at the end of football season, and the other two girls carried on without her. During one assembly Nola, without re- hearsal, beat out the rhythm to "Dragnet" The three girls cut out and made their own outfits and pom-poms, under the guidance of Mrs. Noel. The three cheerleaders-Beverly Comp- ton, Jolene Swearingen, and Dolores Por- tillo--led crowded bleachers of rooters in well known school cheers throughout the football and basketball seasons.

The boys even squeezed into some old uniforms for the occasion. Also playing an important part during basketball season were the junior high cheerleaders, who led yells at all C games and, on occasion, for the heavyweight team. The girls, who are required to be ninth graders or under, were Linda Sayre, Sandra Mosman, and Renee Garton. The songleaders were selected by the student council, but the cheerleaders' names were put on the ballot and elected along with other student body officers. On the football trip to Bishop these girls were treated to dinner by the student body along with the others who worked so hard to make a good show for our school.

Ada reigned supreme at the rally, in the parade, and during the game. As a junior she was a princess, and since her freshman year, a candidate. This year after three years in the ranks, Ada gradu- ated to head majorette. 4 70' ' tweak Homecoming! To Trona High students this means greeting the old grads, toasting on one side and freezing on the other while watching the bonfire, or shouting yourself hoarse in the car parade. This 12th Homecoming mea- sured up to all those preceding and in some respects even surpassed them. Friday Started It Raul Quezada, Ronnie Baxter, and Frank Picon mimicked the cheerleaders in a light- hearted assembly engineered by the C. S. F. to begin the weekend. In the evening after a beeping, screeching car parade which in- cluded a traveling band, approximately 850 people crammed the aud for the rally. As usual, Earl Knowles, M. C., enjoyed sharing the stage with these lovely girls - Queen Ada Rae Wellbaum, Princesses Shari McKean and Marian Reece, and Attendants Diane Cassel, Phyllis Oswald, Edna Hudson, Jay- deen Burke, Dorothy Goodman, Roberta Wil- son, and Mary Ellen Still. The team climbed out of their uniforms long enough to be intro- duced. Tommy Burke, QB Club president and guest speaker, cautioned the boys to fight but fight fair. Up in Smoke Next there was a general exodus to watch the newly elected co-captains, Wesley Plam- beck and Ronnie Baxter fsee cutj, ignite the bonfire. Simultaneously the "T" was outlined in flames as the seventh and eighth grade boys lit the torches. Led by our majorettes and their energetic mascot, Kathy Skibinski Csee cutj, the float parade began promptly at noon. Mirroring the town's reaction to the game, the QB Club float showed a Tornado roaring through the Needles team and leaving them prostrate. Win Streak Renewed A fitting climax to the weekend was the 32-6 trouncing Trona gave Needles to renew our winning streak in Homecoming games. No hard feelings, however, were brought to the dinner for the two teams, the coaches, and their dates. The dance afterwards was packed with students and alumni. Students thronged around Art Large of Needles as he, with Ronnie Baxter on the drums, beat out "I Don't Know." Blues numbers by Art fsee cutj continued to hold everyone spellbound. Z 'gaoafla Pretty profitable, wasn't it?" comments Mr. Davis on the sale of Homecoming programs to Vice President Pat, President Barbie, and Sec- retary Sydney The C.S.F. got the profits in re- turn for selling tickets at games. The California Scholarship Fed- eration is made up of the more stu- dious persons in the ninth grade and above. The aim of this group is to stimulate scholastic achieve- ments and to recognize students who have excelled in scholarship and extra-curricular activities. To be eligible for this club, a person must earn a total of ten points in one semester. Each "AH counts three points and each "B" counts as one. At least eight points are based on grades alone. You may have up to two points in extra-cur- ricular activities. Life member- ships are given for membership during four out of the last six sem- esters in high school. The members of the group Ah!

It was an educational excursion as well as a short vacation for the students and their sponsor, Mr. Davis.

Everyone had a rest, cleaned up, and yakkity-yakked until dinner at Mike Ly- man's. Lobster in the shell, shrimp, prime roast, and frog legs were the big features of the menu. The Robe at the Downtown Los Angeles Theater was appreciated by the seniors who then found it difficult to settle down to mundane sleep. Late as it was when they hit the sack, most were up early to join the Christmas crowds in rushing from store to store. There were lots of stragglers when the time came to hop the bus for Olvera Street. On arriving, the mob split up and invaded candle-making, glass-blowing, and news- paper printing shops, curio stands, and outside cafes. The tangy tacos, tamales, and enchiladas were a treat to those who sel- dom taste real Mexican food. Before heading for home, the kids stopped at Chinatown. But, since money was now practically non-existent, the visit was purely sightseeing. Everyone managed to squeeze out enough for a spaghetti din- ner before taking the last lap.

Take the concerted efforts of 32 students and two advisors over an eight-month period and the result is the 100-page annual you are now reading. Mr. Fagin's photography class spent long hours covering events and processing the pictures while the Telescope editorial staff spent several afternoons laying out pages and writing copy. Richard Gonzalez and Jeff Peeden did a good deal of the photographic work, as did Al Gonzalez, Ernie Kraut, Bill Rich, and Zane Little. Checking in at the semester were Jim Farrah, Al Adams, Bill Currey, and LeRoy Reece. The boys themselves did most of the developing and handled the cameras and other equip- ment. For this year's annual the staff used a new process, the offset method. This way the staff had greater free- dom in laying out the pages, and they could use more pictures. The pictures could be set at different angles and in different shapes to make the pages have more style. Heading the staff this year was Barbara Garcia as editor of the book. She spent many long hours trying to set everyone else wise to what they were doing when she was just catching on herself. There were sub-editors for each separate sectiong Dorothy Marshall did the introductory section, assisted by Pat Hagarg working on the classes was Virginia Hall, who also wrote some of the copy.

Mary Knowles was the ad manager-making contacts, selling ads, and laying out her section. Doing the bulk of the copy writing was Pat Finnelly, literary editor. She was encouraged and boosted by Bob Rascoe, who also helped in selling the books. Doing the art work on the annual were Lois Pratt, Nadeen Schofield, and Pat Clampitt. Lois drew the social calendar and the cover, Nadeen did all the divider sheets and the title page, and Pat did the end sheets.

One kind is put on by the social chairman and is backed by student body funds, like the Ice Breaker. The Prom and the Christmas Ball are two dances put on by classes and paid for out of the class' own funds. Then there is the third kind, where the organization puts on the dance and the student body pays the expenses. The Sok Hop was of the third type. Sponsored by Mrs. Noel and Mr. Mer- rill, the freshman class put on this dance, using student body funds. Students danced to recorded music and had refreshments of cup-cakes and Pepsi-Cola. Prizes were given for the biggest foot, the smallest foot, and a king and queen were chosen by a ticket dance. The junior high had their Sok Hop on a different night, and it was put on by their own social chairman. They served sherbet floats and cookies and also danced to records. Following the refreshments, prizes were presented for the largest and smallest foot. These four pair of feet belong to senior high girls. These are just a few of the clever ideas the students had in compet- ing for the prizes. 56 me ,-404 S t u d e n t s celebrated Valentine's Day this year with two dances: one for the junior high, and a week later the SeI1lOI' high held thelI'S.

Just look at the faces of Barbara Knight, Rita Skidmore, Ann Davenport, and Lois Pratt receiving instructions from high school secretary, Mrs. Stark, who gives a lot of her time teaching the girls how to run an office. Girls taking business courses have a good opportunity to practice and get good experience before they leave high school. They apply what they learn in their busi- ness classes while they work in the central and high school offices. These girls help out and at the same time help themselves. Some of the girls work under the super- vision of Mrs. Wheeler and Miss Christy in the central office. They work the cal- culating and adding machines, answer the telephones occasionally, fill out and type purchase orders and requisitions, do a lot of filing, run errands, and take messages around. Others, who work with Mrs. Stark in the high school office, pick up roll sheets, take out the bulletins, sort mail, fix at- tendance records, fill out blue cards and tardy slips for those many absentees and late comers, type roll sheets, run off tests and other data on the mimeograph ma- chine, run errands, and help the new stu- They're off!

All girls who take office practice must be at least of sophomore standing and must be enrolled in a business course. Also they must have had at least one year of typing. Most of the girls, however, are juniors and seniors as they are preferred by their sup- ervisors. This is a regular class and the girls must be graded. Mr. Eaton, the business teacher, gives each girl a paper which they take to their supervisor, who in turn grades the paper and turns it back. Each girl is graded on the quantity and quality of work she does as well as how she coopera- ates with her employer and co-workers. Regularity of attendance is also figured in. Besides office practice, students major- ing in business may take two years each of typing, shorthand, and bookkeeping, and also a class in business English and general business. More than 80 words a minute is the goal of the first year shorthand class. ssm. .im t .

Ann Davenport takes care of the typing end while Barbara Pease zips in and out of classes collecting. Every period someone has to pick up the roll sheets as they do such minor tasks as read special bulletins, bring faculty information, and just transfer messages. Office practice girls save time and effort for stu- dents, teachers, and visitors alike and at the same time gain valuable experience. The how's and why's of the filing system are ex- plained by Mrs. Stark to office practice girls-Darlene Bell, Ruth Lopez, Bev Compton, Orrene Slafter, and Jo Rita Donham.

Now schools provide an outlet for other talents through the art, shop, music, and homemaking classes. These classes are also vocational and a preparation for future interests. A new addition this year was the vocal music class directed by Mr. Arnold. In this class students trained their voices. Open to students from the ninth through the twelfth grades, the class presenteda beauti- ful Christmas program for the school.

There was a marching band, which was seen on the football field and uptown, and a concert band which played in some of the assemblies and put on the annual spring concert. For the boys in school there are several different industrial arts classes offered. They can take shop when they are in the seventh and eighth grades. It is a general class where they start learning the funda- mentals and how to handle tools.

Girls also learn the most important prin- ciples of sewing, and they make anything they wish from simple aprons to suits and dresses. It is a good chance to complete your wardrobe.

Due to the hard work of the Quarterback Club, Griffith Field was equipped with lights, making it possible to have night football games. Record crowds, averaging 750 per- sons per game, attended throughout the season. The season got off to a good start with Trona defeating Twin Pines. Staunch de- fenses by the two lines held the game scoreless through the third quarter. Final score, after a fourth quarter touchdown: Trona 6, Twin Pines 0. The next week saw the Tornadoes trav- eling 230 miles to Carpinteria. This was expected to be one of the tougher games of the season, and it was. The Tornadoes were outweighed but not outplayed-both teams playing hard till the final gun. No breaks for Trona that night, with more than our share of fumbles and injuries. Final score: Carpinteria 26, Trona 0. At the end of the season Carpinteria had won first place in their league. The first league game found us hosting unbeaten Victor Valley. What a game! iop len: Largest football team in the history of Trona High School warms up on Griffith Field prior to the Homecoming game with Needles. Top right: What goes on here?

Quezada breaks away from Needles on a outback, heading for the end zone. 7 -5 fecafwi, There were 800 spectators cheering the Tornadoes to a victory of 31-19. Receiving the opening kickoff on their own 32 yard line, Trona went all the Way in 8 plays for the first tally. The entire game was played at that tempo. The visiting Jackrabbits ap- peared stunned. Apparenly they had taken too seriously those wonderful write-ups in the San Bernandino Sun. The night game with Mojave was played at Edwards Air Force Base. This was their first year in the Desert-Inyo League. The rooters who were lucky enough to find the field saw the Tornadoes win 34-14. Tehachapi came to Trona for our third annual "Dad's Day" game. The half found the score 20-0, Trona's favor, but the War- riors came back fighting, and the final score was Trona 20, Tehachapi 19. We played Barstow. Score: 50-6. Barstow lucked out. The next week Trona played at Lone Pine. Lone Pine was apparently fired up and determined to redeem themselves after a loss the week before. The Torna- da D7-f does were overconfident. At the end of the third quarter Trona was trailing 12-13. Then they began to play ball, things began to click, and the Tornadoes racked up 19 points in the fourth quarter to win 31-13. A 168-mile trip to Bishop ended in a much disputed game, with Bishop winning 34-20. A complaint was filed before the game began because their referees were not qualified. During the half the Bishop coach gave the Trona coach a copy of our plays which one of our local "fans" had sent him. Trona turned the tables on Burroughs by ruining their Homecoming weekend and evened the score from the year before when they ruined ours by defeating us in the last few minutes of play. The half time saw the Tornadoes in a 12-0 lead. During the fourth quarter Burroughs took the lead by scoring 14 points. Since time was running out, it looked like a victory was in the bag for them. A well-timed long pass by the Tornadoes sailed right through the arms of two Burroughs players and spoiled Raul Quezada breaks away for a. touchdown against Needles as Chris Petersen and Manuel Picon clear the way. The final score of the game was 32-6, Trona's favor. This is the third year in a row that the Tornadoes have beaten the Mus- tangs-twice on our field and once on their home grounds. 2 cz, 704544, ?ez'm4ea, what had been a highly enjoyable Home- coming day for the Burroughs rooters: Score: 18-14, Trona's favor. The Trona Tornadoes sent a Homecom- ing crowd away happy Saturday afternoon when they scored an impressive 32-6 over the Needles Mustangs. At the half the Tornadoes were ahead 18-0. The third quarter was scoreless for both sides, but the fourth quarter saw 6 points for Needles and 14 for Trona. The Tornadoes are out to set a new record for Homecoming games, and this is No. 1 in the new series. The Tor- nadoes previously had won ten Homecom- ing games in a row before they lost last year. This has been the best and largest elev- en-man football team in the history of Trona High, with an average of 33 suiting up for each game. Never before in Trona has there been such a large team nor such a large coaching staff. Head Coach Joe Hunter was assisted by Dick Wilkinson, Dick Rasines, and Don Davis. The single wing and split T formation were used to great advantage. Trona had 7 wins and 3 losses in the en- tire season, and 4 wins and 2 losses in league competition. This gave us a three- way tie for second place in the Desert-lnyo League with Victor Valley and Bishop. Barstow won first place. Ruly Quezada made the All Desert-lnyo eleven backfield. On the second All Desert- Inyo team were Chris Petersen, guard, and Eddie Walsh, tackle, Larry Burke, guard, BOB KEYSER DON BROOKS WES PLAMBECK Tackle End Center Y' 2 e Bruce Bernhardi gets away from Wes Raul Quezada cuts back through the line but finds a wall Plambeck and picks up a blocker during the of Needles players ready to stop him.

This year a football clinic was held at Trona for the benefit of the spectators of the two desert communities. The Bur- roughs and Trona squads participated in demonstrating the new rules and forma- tions. This was followed by a short scrim- mage, with both Burroughs and Trona players on each team. This was educational as well as creating a feeling of good sports- manship between the two schools. Picture of the clinic is shown at the top of the page. The squad is losing 11 seniors. Their pictures should all be at the bottom of the page, but since seniors are very busy, only six found time to oblige the photographer.

The organization met weekly, and after a short meeting the girls headed for their favorite equipment. With student body money 37 girls turn out to pose the girls put on the Valentine Dance. The Girl's Athletic Association, better known as the G.A.A., serves as a sports activity for the girls. Since the weaker sex does not play football or go out for the other sports which support our school, they get their exercise through this organiza- tion. The active members learn good sport- manship and a desirable social conduct. Sponsored by the physical education in- structor, Miss Anderson, the girls partici- pated in many "play days" with other schools. They played volley ball, tennis, basketball, and volley-tennis. President was Barbie Kraut and Pat Clampitt was her vice-president.

The G.A.A. also put on the Valentine's Dance in February and put forth a lot of work helping the V. C. make the Sadie Hawkins Dance a success. The girls also had a very promising float in the Home- coming parade. Like the boys, the girls also have sweat- ers and letters. Their sweaters were white, and although the blue letters weren't quite as strenuous to earn, it is just as much an honor to Wear them, and the girls were very proud of them. Now that it's nearly over the G.A.A. pledges feel relieved enough to indulge in a few antics. Judy McKean scrubs the road as she sticks out her tongue and tickles her head.

All boys must have earned an "A" letter in some sport to be eligible for the club. Most of their meetings were spent talking over the latest game and how well they Bev Compton orders did, but they got out and really pitched in to help the G.A.A. put on the Sadie Haw- kins Dance at the close of the school year.

Out of the games completed the team won five, winning the last two in a row-which has not happened in the last few years. And they lost another by only one point. As can be seen, their teamwork was begin- ning to show. Most of the players had not played together as A's before nor even on the same team. The first practice game was played at Burroughs with a score of 28-48. Bur- rough's favor. It might have been a closer game if the seniors had not been away for their ditch day. The next weekis game with Lone Pine was cancelled, but the A's won their first home game against Mojave, 49-38. The Lone Pine Tournament was held Jan. 8 and 9, just before the start of league play. Trona lost the first game to Lone Pine 38-53, and the second game to Bur- roughs, 35-60. Starting the season, the Uunusual wea- ther" trip to Victorville on Jan. 12 will be long remembered. The score: Victorville 49, Trona 32. The bus left Vietorville around 10:30 p.m. and arrived in Trona at 6 a.m. The bus was snowbound for three hours while traffic ahead was unsnlarled. The next Saturday the team went to Big Pine and won 57-43. Some of their students gave the team a send-off by lining the street and hurling rocks and bottles at the bus. There was one direct hit which broke a window. Lone Pine was next on the agenda. The first half was close, but in the third quar- ter Trona goofed off and lost the game 51-32. The next day Bishop came to Trona. The Tornadoes held Bishop down the last half to a final score of 37-51, Bishop's favor. Mojave called again for a second defeat on the Trona court. Score: 42-35. The fol- lowing day Trona hosted Burroughs. The Tornado teamwork was in evidence, and real ball was played all four quarters. A last-second shot for Burroughs won them the game, 42-41. The next weekend was a dreary affair. Victor Valley took the game on Trona's court, 39-29, while the trip to Barstow pro- vided a 61-40 defeat. Big Pine came to Trona on Feb. 12 to lose 48-27. Every member of the Trona team got into the scoring column. The next day Trona went to Mojave to win what turned out to be the last game of the season. The score: Trona 39, Mojave 31. The unfortunate Fish Rock incident caused an early climax to the season. A rock was hurled through a window of the Big Pine bus, and a player was seriously injured. It is most unfortunate that this happened as Trona High had a good sports- manship record. It is something that the whole school will have to suffer for and live down. The remaining games were cancelled to show the seriousness of this act and to remind the students that it pays to think before acting impulsively. Watch out: collision!

The first win was against Burroughs by a score of 47-35. Although the next game with Lone Pine was cancelled by them, in weekday games the B's played Randsburg twice and won both of them: 48-37 and 49-32. To finish December play, lVlojave's B's came to Trona to meet a 39-28 defeat. The B team brought glory to Trona High by taking the Lone Pine Tournament hands down. They played Bishop in the first game and won 63-40. The second game played the following day with Burroughs, was closer, but Trona was still the out- standing team. Score: 49-37. League play began with Victor Valley. Although nip and tuck all the way, the Tornadoes pulled ahead in the last few minutes to win, 40-36. The B's dropped off at Owens Valley to lose their first game of the season against an unclassified team, 57-35. Apparently they were getting overconfident and did not play their usual game of ball. The Jan. 22 game at Lone Pine was close all the way and was a very exciting game. Lone Pine edged the team out in the last seconds to win, 48-46. Bishop came to Trona the next day, and the Tornadoes got back into the winning column by dropping Bishop, 44-25. The next weekend Mojave came to Trona to lose 55-24, but the following day Burroughs beat the B's in a very close and thrilling game. Final score: 47-42. The next weekend Victor Valley trek- ked to Trona to lose 25-33, only to find the B's losing a 48-32 decision in Barstow the following afternoon. Owens Valley's unclassified team came to Trona, refused to tangle with the A"s, and then were rudely upset by a deter- mined bunch of B's, 38-36. In closing, the B's beat Mojave on their home court in a very decisive win, 53-29, to end a highly successful season. This outstanding B team might have won the league championship if the season had been completed. Kneeling, left to right: Al Adams, Gary Casey, Frank Picon.

The C team did not get off to a win- ning start although their first game with Burroughs was lost by only a small margin, the final score being 26-29. Two practice games with Randsburg proved successful for the C's. They won both games, by scores of 27-15 and 34- 25. The game with Mojave, the last before Christmas vacation, was played and won on our home court, 22-19. The C's took their first game in the Lone Pine Tournament by a score of 33-28 over Bishop. The next day the very exciting play-off game between Trona and Lone Pine was lost by one point, 36-35. Tuesday the C's traveled to Victor- ville to take a league loss of 27-40 but bounced back the following weekend to win a very exciting, close game at Owens Valley, 35-32. The trip to Lone Pine was unsuccess- ful from the C's point of view as they lost 22-38, and then Bishop came to Trona the next day to defeat the C's, 32-17. Cn Jan. 29 Mojave traveled to Trona to edge the C's out in a close. fast game by 1 point The final score: 26-25. On the next day Trona knocked off Bur- roughs in a game played at the same pace. winning 29-26. Victor Valley came to Trona the fol- lowing week to down the C's, 27-16. The next day the team played a good game at Barstow, yet lost by a small margin, the final score being Barstow 36, Trona 32. In the last games Owens Valley's C's downed Trona on Trona's home court by 10 points, making the score 32-22, while a trip to Edwards Air Force Base did not pay off for the C's as the final score was Mojave 21, Trona 13. The final season tally stood at six wins and ten losses. Four of those losses were by a one to four point margin, so the season could rightfully be termed a successful one for the C team.

These were the boys' physical education classes. This year there was not one but four physical education teachers. Since Mr. Wilkinson taught drivers' education and biology he had two periods he couldn't teach physical education. Mr. Rasines and Mr. Ferman took over during those two periods. Also someone had to teach physical education while Mr. Wilkinson was coaching basketball, football, and track. Mr. Merrill filled in this spot. Most of the classes were planned ahead of time for the following day. The different games the boys played usually corresponded to those that the varsity were playing. In addition to baseball, track, football, and basketball the class- es tumbled, wrestled, and played volley ball and badminton. Physical education is not just for fun Jerry Chandler, Walter Martin, George Garcia, and Bugs MacLean go into a wobbly head stand. Bernard Denham and Wade Long do some tumbl- ing while others in the class look on. f ff' X X but helps develop the body. All of the running, jumping, and turning is con- stantly making muscles bigger and stronger. Also it helps to build up wind. The teachers were constantly watch- ing the students and helping them to play a better game and to be better sports. This is how the grades were giv- en out. Being a good player didn't count at all towards a grade. Good sportsman- ship and teamwork were the important things one got from a physical education class. Albert Alvarez and Tommy My- ers are ready to wrestle it out. - sa Jaw! Six periods a day girls trooped out to the gym to get their exercise along with some whole-hearted fun. Miss Anderson kept about 165 girls busy everyday, five days a week. Learning the steps for the latest in the modern dance or the oldest in folk dancing interested them for weeks. Some liked to take a period of exercis- ing to straighten their posture. The ten- nis courts were frequently filled with excited girls, swinging rackets, and fast- flying balls. After passing, dribbling, and juggling down the court during a fast basketball game, everyone shuffled in hot and tired but ready to try for a win again tomorrow. In volley ball the kids perfected their setting up and their spiking. When the boys were out swing- ing their bats, the girls came along swinging lighter ones. Miss Anderson strove to coordinate class activities with the various sports seasons, While the whole class joined in for group sports, they divided up for individual work such as tennis, badmin- ton, or dancing. Why take a gym class? Besides catch- ing up on the latest gossip, the girls learned games which they could enjoy after graduation. Better posture, more poise, healthier exercise than sitting and suffering through tests, and time to mingle with friends were convincing reasons for coming out and getting in the swing of it.

Don't miss it," they yelled as the eighth graders waged a volley tennis battle. It looks like these girls are really having fun while modern dancing in the foyer.

Spring sports had arrived, and Trona's track teams began running laps, jumping, and hurd- ling. This yearls A team was smaller than last year's and operated on an individual basis. As many as usual showed up in the B division, giving them a good chance to place in the Desert-Inyo League Meet. Though considerably smaller than usual, the C squad was out to prove itself. Two dual meets, one with Burroughs eye. Is the pit really that hard? Or is Bruce trying to hypnotize the bar in place" In the background Tommy Wilson and Deril Schmitt are watching how it's done.

Those who placed in the DIL meet had a chance to go on to the quarter- finals and the semi-finals. If they placed in these two, they were eligible to go to the state finals.

Ever since the baseball league was formed in the spring, 1950, with Trona, Lone Pine, and Burroughs as charter mem- bers, Trona has copped the bunting. The last two years an additional school has joined the league. This year Barstow joined, making it a five school league, while Desert made their first showing last year.

From here on out the future becomes your special province and if you want it shaped to your specifications you will have to start thinking tomorrow's thoughts today. This will be a new experience for most of you because until now the job of looking ahead has been largely handled by your parents and teachers. Now it's your turn. One of the most important aspects of your future which requires thought today is the manner in which you intend to earn your living. Chances are that you won't encounter much difficulty obtaining a job - just make certain it's the kind of job that fits your future. Wages are uniformly high in most fields, they are not your greatest concern. Nor should security be over-emphasized. Not, at least, to the point where it becomes synonymous with burying yourself in a rut. Most important from your point of view is a job in which the work yields you a high degree of Wsatisfaction, which affords you an opportunity for the development and expression of your natural abilities and training, and which contributes some- thing to the well being of your fellow man. One field of endeavor, rich in such op- portunities, which we suggest you investi- gate, is the chemical industry, one of the largest, fastest growing in- dustries in the world. With few exceptions, you will find a place in the chemical industry for what- X ever vocation you decide to follow. There is a constant, evergrowing need for pro- fessional men and women and for virtually all kinds of skilled craftsmen and , th administrators.
