The Alert Staff has tried to depict to
you the events and activities that have hap'
pened at Turlock Hi during the '46747 school
year. We hope that in years to come this
hook will remind you of the many good
times we had together and of the trying times
the faculty had in preparing us for the future.
Volume 39, the 1947 ALERT, is puhf
lished hy the Senior Class of Turlock Union
High School, Turlock, California. Photogf
raphy was done hy Lindhlom Photo Studiog
engraving hy Fresno Photo Engraving Coin'
any: and printing hy Harder's Print Shop.
CHAR LES F, PERROTT,
Turlock Hi Principal from
1932 to 1947,
the Senior Class
dedicate this hook
Message to The Seniors .....
live in deeds, not yearsg in thoughts, not
hreathsg in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We
should count time hy heartfthrohs. He most lives,
who thinks most, feels the nohlest, acts the hestf'
--From 'AFestus" hy Philip Bailey..
Time is supreme, time is eternity. Too often
we censure Mother Nature for a span of time too
short. Yet short as time is we find it tedious, too,
and we use every invention and expedient to lash
the passing moments into greater speed. How
thoughtless, thankless and inconsistent we are.
Queen Elizaheth's last words were, 'gall my posf
sessions for a moment of time." Perhaps we would
he much happier if we lived each moment, each
hour, each day as if it were the last.
Few of us realize the value of the present moment. The thing at hand is the one thing hest worth doing, the people
around us are the folks hest worth helping, and the hit of sod under our feet is the sweetest in the world. Do not
minimize your talents and powers. Make determined and cheerful use of them. Too many folks wait until they
possess more knowledge, more skill, more moneyg or wait until they live among a different set of people or in a differ'
ent town or until they have a different health or temperament, hefore they attempt to accomplish something.
No amhition for greatness is worth cherishing if it intcreferes with a full employment of tofdayis opportunities.
The path of success in the future is the path of present faithfulness!
john H. Pitman.

Serving as Director of
Athletics at Turlock High,
joe Debely coached the var'
sity football and track teams
to a very successful season. Ice Debely Armand Seghetti Dove Weise Bill Tully
Besides gaining invaluable experience from Debely's coaching, the varsity eleven showed well against the high calibre
of opposition met in the Sac Joaquin League by taking a fourth place in the League behind Stockton, Lodi, and
McClatchy, Coach Debeley also coached the "A" track team with the assistance of Dave Weise to a Southern Half
Sac Joaquin Conference Championship.
Dave Weise in his second year at Turlock High coached two "B" teams to a very successful season. Turlock
Highs lightweight eleven won five and tied one out of a total of eight, while the HB" basketball quintet rounded out
their season with fifteen wins and three losses. Confronted with the problem of experiencing new material, Dave
Weisc also coached the varsity "C" basketball teams to a fair season. In the spring Coach Weise assisted in the
coaching of Turlock Highs track teams.
Aiding joe Debely in piloting the Bulldog varsity, Armand Seghetti also served as varsity and "B" baseball coach
after returning to Turlock High from two years of service in the United States Navy. Coach Seghetti served as varsity
line coach and produced a fast charging and hard hitting line, which proved to be a great asset in the past successful
season. The varsity and "B" baseball teams gained a great deal of experience under the coaching of Armand Seghetti.
Another newcomer to the local coaching staff was Bill Tully. Coach Tully succeeded in experiencing the midget
football boys through their season. Besides coaching the "C" football team, he also served as civics and social science

Varsity Football .
Starting the season tagged as "green" and "underdogs", the
Bulldog varsity eleven, under the coaching of joe Dehely and
Armand Seghetti, soon revised this misconcept of their op'
ponents hy coming through with victories and near victories in
hard fought contests. Six opponents went down to defeat against
the Bulldogs while the locals howed twice. One tie and a no conf
test rounded out the remainder of the season with the fourth
place in the eight team league.
Using a modified NT" formation, the Bulldogs opened their
season with a 13f6 victory over the Oakdale Nlustangs on the
After this nonfleague victory the Bulldogs pafd a vsft to
the Sacramento Dragons and came home with a 1841 league
Changing to a single wing formation, the locals played host
to a tough Lodi team which dealt out a 1941 druhhing. Previous
to this game, Dale Winans fractured his shoulder in a weekday
practice and was not expected to compete for the rest of the
Ivlodesto, expecting to have a field day, came to Turlock
and was held O43 in a nonfspectacular game in which saw the
Bulldogs put up a good defense.
Wayne Bergman, quarterback, and Harold Cornell,
The League leading lVlcClatchy Lions came to Turlock expecting to walk away with an easy victory, hut spcctacuf
lar running hy ,lim Bessera and Bill Wilstiii and passing hy Wztyiic Bergman made the Lions fight for a l9f18 victory.
Again traveling north, the locals, resorting to the "T" formation again, dumped Vxfoodland 2041.
Taking a hreak from league play, the Bulldogs dumped the Merced Bears into the once defeated ranks hy a 32f19
score in a freefscoring contest on Armistice Day.
On Novemher 13 the Bulldogs traveled to meet the highlyfrated leaguefleading Tarzans of Stockton. The two
teams fought nip and tuck to a 14f13 score in the third quarter when the game was called "no contest" on account
of dense fog.
Grant proved to he just another league victim of the Bulldogs. The score was 21f7.
Finally came the game everyone was waiting for. In true championship style the Bulldogs druhhcd the Modesto
Panthers 2Of12 in the annual Thanksgiving game to wind up the 1946 season.

Although winning a majority of their nonfleagnc games, the local varsity nine did not fare as well in league play
ending the season in the hottoin half of the league. A lack of necessary hitting power and steady pitching plus first
class competition, such as Lodi, Stockton, and Modesto, proved too much for Coach Seghettfs hatfwcilders to coinpett
Like the varsity, the 'B' team ended the season in the bottom half of the league. On the whole the 'B' tea
was a good ball cluh but failed to come through in the pinchcs, losing several close decisions. Aided by Coach Scghet 1
Clarence Rodrick, Turlock High Senior, coached the lightwcights through their season.
Starting the season off without a coach, the Turf
lock High tennis team failed to get off to a good start,
thus only experiencing a fair year. Harry Olson,
local truck driver, generously offered his time to
coach the team as the season progressed. George Bill
and jim Collett, hoth Seniors, proved to he the haekf
hone of the local squad, as hoth of them won a ma'
jority of their matches. Jim is a four year memher
of the squad. Tennis would gain it's position in
Turlock High sports if coaching facilities he made to
include it as a major sport. Boh Weritz acted as
faculty advisor for the group.
