Time sped by until 1917, when the faculty had increased to fifteen and the need for more room became a problem to be faced with action. ln 1921, three bond elections were held, averaging Sl20,000. At each election the bonds were emphatically voted down. At these trying periods, the students worked long and faithfully helping the campaigners. In 1922 a larger bond election was held. This, too, ended in defeat. The towns- people could not see see lit to appropriate a few thousand dollars for a new school. The High School Board after seeing that it was useless to try to get an appropriation of any large amount from the people by a bond election, de- cided to build the high school directly by taxation. They formulated plans and finally decided to move the whole school over to the new site. planning ln save money on thc upkeep of the school. The school was moved in the summer of l922. Even in face of the fact that the buildings were nothing more than shacks, the comfort and equipment was so much better 1 :N 1 IJ: fore, that all concerned gave a sigh of relief as if a great victory had been XVUll. There are now about thirty teachers in the faculty and nearly six hun- dred students enrolled. But that is not all. VVe have two new buildings, the prospect of a new and wonderful auditorium, and some beautiful gardens. Our laboratories are not to be excelled anywhere in the state. And we have teams in athletics that have upheld the prestige of our school in evervlhing. Sadly we are going to have one leave us who has ever been faithful, expedient and loyal in carrying oul his duties to our beloved scho nl, and who has been the foremost ligure in this community for the past few years in the light for the new high school. Those that really know him, know that thc people of Turlock are losing a mighty line man in the person of vl. Perry Ratxell. lle has accomplished whai many have called the impossible lit the face of fire and criticisms from warring factions in this city he has come through with a clean record of never favoring either faction, except that he has followed the straight and narrow path and has brought our high school through the smoke and mist to the dawning of better days. This was all dont- through self-sacrifice and loyalty. Mr. Ratzell may be compared to the old law-giver, Moses, who guided his children through the forty years in the wilderness but was not allowed to enter the promised land. It is not without a tear that we witness the passing of our leader. However, we are com- forted in knowing that we have a good man to fill his place. LeRoy Nichols, and we believe that he will lead our school to still greater heights than it is now. XYl'lEI1 we look back upon 'hese two men we may have the conception of one leading his children through the dark days and the other taking control and leading through days of peace. prosperity and expansion. Turlock high school has inestimable possibilities and iudging by the progressiveness of the past, the fn'ure will be wonderful. i --l..amar ll ack son, '2-el. I Page 61
