Earl Warren signing a bill at Sacramento to provide dormitories for 4,000 University of California students were (left to right) Willie Wigger, Delmer Beisell, Sharon Smith, Dean Paul A. Jones, and Bernard Rumack. A new chapter in Santa Barbara College history was begun on March 18, 1946, when Governor Earl Warren signed Bill AB 47, appropriating »| ' 4,400,ooo for dormitories on the University of California campuses at Berkeley, Los Angeles, Davis, and Santa Barbara. During the month of January, Dean Helen Sweet, Sharon Smith, and Jack Newmon had lobbied for passage of the " dormitory bill " before the state legislature. Witnessing the signing in the Governor ' s office was a delegation of five from Santa Barbara College which included Bernard Rumack, Del Beisell, Sharon Smith, Willie Wigger, and Dean Paul A. Jones. The student delegates, all members of the California Club, attended a luncheon at Davis, following the ceremony. Santa Barbara ' s dormitories will be on or near the Mesa Campus. LOOKING TO THE FUTURE This air view of the Mesa campus shows (i) the Industrial Education Building, (2) La Playa Stadium, (3) breakwater and (4) recently purchased land, the proposed site for new buildings and dormitories. The view of expansion for Santa Barbara College is yet a part of the immediate future. During the year meetings have been held with rep- resentatives of the University for the purpose of suggesting and developing future plans. Construction of buildings on the Mesa Campus will be started as soon as possible, but the shortage of materials and labor will probably de- lay the building program for several months. Dormitories will be the first buildings under construction. VETERANS ' REGISTRATION Spring enrollment at Santa Barbara College showed a gain of 60 percent over the Fall term, increasing from 871 to 1387. The return of veterans from World War II was largely re- sponsible for the gain, and for the first time in history men outnumbered women 698 to 689. This photo was taken on the special registration day for veterans, during which near- ly 600 ex-servicemen enrolled. For the first time in the history of Santa Barbara College men outnum- ber women students on campus. With the return of the veteran there was an enrollment gain of sixty percent over the preceding semester. February registration saw the return of many former students who are resuming their college careers after an absence of several years. Forty veterans are attend- ing college under Public Law 16, while the remainder are under Public Law 346, the " G. I. Bill of Rights. " Santa Barbara College will be looking for- ward to accelerated social activities, an outstanding athletic program, and academic superiority with the return of the veteran to the classroom. EL DIA DEL GAUCHO Two of the outstanding entries in the El Dia Del Gaucho parade were the Delta S:gma Epsilon float (left), which won first prize in the organizations divisions, and the Phi Kap- pa Gamma car. Following the judging of the entries, a parade to LaPlaya Stadium was held, and the University of California Charter Day was observed on the Mesa campus. The second annual Charter Day celebration was held on the Santa Barbara College campus March 22, 23. " El Dia Del Gaucho " began with the car caravan from the Riviera to the Mesa campus, followed by a picnic dinner on La Playa field. The torchlight parade saw many Gauchos hiking up the Mesa to light the traditional bonfire. The first post-war Homecom- ing was another great day for the Gauchos. Hundreds of alumni returned to the scenes of their college days. Well deserved credit is given to the California Club for their work in organization of the affair. . ' ' lnV.

AWARDS i Bob Elliott During the past year, Bob Elliott has displayed unusual ability and leadership. For his work he has been awarded the Associated Men Students plaque. Ray Puissegur and Lowell Williams received honorable mention. Lowell Williams Ray Puissegur PROVOST ' S MESSAGE The Santa Barbara College, in the second year of its activities as a part of the University of California, is reacting to its new situation with increasing interest. This is mainly due to a recognition of the great possibilities which come from the new relationship with a great educational organization and to the return of our men to the campus. These two conditions are making life over. Activities of all kinds are demand- ing new attention from students. There was much to restore; there will be much to build anew. This is a most challenging period. Our affairs are still in transition with not many items marked off as completed. But the students here now will probably always recall the years they spent here as among the most interesting and fruitful in their whole lives. It is a great adventure to be alive and to be here at this particular time. All best wishes for the future. I C. L. Phelps.

In May, the Senior Class planned and executed their ditch day at the Samark- and Hotel. Montecito Country Club was the scene of the Senior Banquet, climaxing the year of events. JUNIOR CLASS Norman Elliott •The Iiinior Class is proud of its members and leaders who have set an example that will be hard to surpass in the coming years. With only one year left before graduation arrives, they have packed vim, vigor and initiative into this year ' s activities. Routine activities have been put over in new and interesting fashions, and their noon rally brought many a Gaucho to the Quad. In honor of the Senior Class the juniors packed every ounce of ingenuity into spon- soring the junior-Senior Prom, and with the Montecito Country Club as a setting, it was a filing tribute to a grand group of students.

The position of a class sponsor was graciously accepted by Mr. Conrad, who has more than fulfilled the duties required of him. Everman Hellewegen Zankich Lawrence Wathey With their first initiation into college life, the Freshman Class started off with a bang. Not only did they have their regular class meetings and social affairs, but they aided materially to the school spirit as a whole. First on the program was a party held in the Music Hall and called a Turkey Trot. Box lunches and swing music were the order of the day. Then the class sponsored one of the biggest events on the social calendar — the Washington Ball held at the Montecito Country Club. Other activities included the sponsoring of the Freshman Womans Organization, and sponsoring the changing of the school em- blem. On the whole, they showed themselves well equipped to meet with the next three years of their college careers.

Following the first week of school, early in February, officers were elected to fill out the remainder of the 1945-46 school year and plans made for several social events. First was a steak and bean feed held at the College Cabin on February 12th for which there was a large turnout. Future plans of the department group call for: a married major ' s party in which the wives will be introduced to the members of the department; the possible formation of an auxiliary unit among the various wives; dances following athletic contests; group excur- sions to various out of town athletic contests; and the promotion of several money raising projects to obtain funds for the furnishing of a department major ' s room in the new pro- posed gymnasium. The group likewise has taken a definite stand in favor of wide and varied program of sports at Santa Barbara and is busily engaged in working toward that goal. In con- nection with this action the group advocates the construction of a new physical education plant capable of serving the needs of this college based on an estimate enrollment of 3500.

February arrived to find the Tau Gams in Can-Can costumes for the Gay Nineties Rush party. The month was climaxed by the Preference Din- ner at El Encanto Hotel where fourteen pledges were honored guests. The traditional Mother ' s Day Breakfast and formal presentation of pledges at the Samarkand Hotel proved to be the outstanding features of the spring activities.

However, in 1937 the organization became the CJamma Sigma Pi fraternity, re- ceiving its charter that year. In past years the Gamma Sigs have had a number of student body presidents and campus leaders, also being noted for holding the " mythical " Fraternity Softball Championship. A semester of sports, school activities ■ind social events was climaxed by the annual Spring Formal, held this year at the Samarkand Hotel.

The first event of the semes- 10. " was the open house, held at the City Club on March 7. During Homecoming, the fraternity assisted at the Mesa Campus as guides when the Industrial Education Department held open house. Joint meeting and parties were held with the fraternity ' s sister sorority, I elta Sigma Epsilon. The policies of the fraternity pertaining to pledging changed considerably. ' ery little ot the activities that were one time prevelant during pledge season were encountered. Four men were taken in dur- ing the pledging season. Alpha Gama Chapter is the twenty seventh chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma which is the oldest teacher ' s college fra- icrnitv in the United States. Hob ( ioulet ATHLETICS I THEO HARDER TERRY DEARBORN WILLIE WILTON NICK CARTER STAN WILLIAMSON The return to sports for the University at California, Santa Barbara College had its first shot in the arm with the return ' of the Physical Education coaches, StanWilliamson, former Lt. Commander in the Navy and Physical Training Instructor at St. Mary ' s Pre- flight School; Willie Wilton, also a Physical Fitness officer at Del Monte Pre-flight School; Nick Carter, former Captain in the Army Air Forces, and Spud Harder who, as a Lt. Commander, served as flag secretary to Admiral Graf while attached to the third fleet amphibious forces. All returned from the service and to their respective positions in the athletic department at Santa Barbara College. During the war years Coach Terry Dear- born carried on with a skeleton crew and a definite lack of man power, now the tables have turned and the Gaucho is headed for its well deserved share of successful athletes and winning teams. A new track and football field, plans for a new gymnasium and the expected return of coach Joe Lantagne, former boxing and health education instructor, along with the return of several hundred returned veterans, many who have athletic pos- sibilities, should make the athletic department stronger than ever before. BASKETBALL The Caucho cage team played only three games as a representative ol Santa Barhara in Collegiate basketball, winning two out of three. Jim Minah throughout the season played a very steady detensivc game at guard, while Murrell Binklcy led the team in individual scoring. Bob Casicr also showed himself a spark plug from the scoring angle. Coach Willie Wilton, who will coach basketball next year, expects a schedule unsurpassed before at Santa Barbara, as games with University of California at Berkeley, U.C.L.A., U.S.C., Santa Clara, and the regular conference sched- ule, plus a few more games, with Pepperdine, Loyola, San Francisco State College, Occi- dental, and Whittier. Bob Sherman, Ceorge Nclmark, Omar Orr, John Costas, Laurence Brewster, Ray Acevedo, Arthur Keighley, and Elton Ballare are a few of a number of reasons why next year should be a peak year for basketball at Santa Barbara College. Below are two action photos of Gaucho basketball games. On the left is the Marine Corp contest and on the right is the Westmont College encounter. ALl ' H KEEGAN DALE SCOTT BASEBALL Baseball this season for the Santa Barbara Gaucho by the score-book shows little for this year ' s team, but competition was keen, as they played such stellar teams, as the University of California at Berkeley, Univeriity of Southern California, San Diego State College, San Jose State College, College of Pacific, and Fresno State College. For an almost entire freshman outfit, no doubt valuable experience was gained. Suffering mostly ■ from the one bad inning fever, the pitchers Keegan, Scott, Helfrich and Metcalf carried the team as best they could. Vic Paulson handled the catching duties solo in lour different double headers. Erratic fielding at times spoiled many chances of a Gaucho victory, mental lapses at times, also, accounting for many of the oppo- nent ' s runs. Spud Harder coached the team assisted by Shan- ty Stansbury, and although as a unit they did not score the most runs in all cases, they developed several fine baseball players. 946 BASEBALL SQUAD lOHN VALENTINO GENE MANGINI EDDIE SAENZ The squad consisted of Vic Paulson, catcher; |ohn Valentino, first base; Bob Elliott, second base; Eddie Saenz, third base; Mark Stienberg, short- stop; Pop Morgan, center field; Cuppy Wallace, right field; (Jene Mangini. left field; Carl Fisher and Bob Shipman. utility men.

Wallace Cole set a new school record in the high jump at 6 feet, 3 inches and in the half mile gave a good representation of his ability in each meet in which he participated. Ed Grabast also set a new school rec- ord in the shot-put with a toss of 48 feet, 3% inches, and also, in throwing the discus, placing a number of times. Other outstanding members of the team who have made their letters are: William Morgan, co-hold- er of the school record in the 100 yard dash with a time of 9.8. He also has run the sprints, two dashes, and the broad jump. Robert Sherman, javelin, high jump and two hurdle races; Mel Patton who has run the dashes, thrown the discus, and the broadjump; ' .lay Lloyd, hurdles; Sam Cathcart, quarter mile and the hurdles; Harry Mathews, pols vault and high- jump; John York, pole vault; Murrell Binkley, mile and two mile; Cail Squires, shot and discus; and Frances Graham, shot-put and discus. 1946 TRACK SQUAD BOB SHERMAN ' I ■li luirdles race in Whittier - Pomona - Santa Barbara College incct At the time we o to press the All-t " -onlerence meet at San Jose as well as the Fresno Relays, in which the thin-clads are to compete, are yet to be told. In the Aztec relays at San Diego the (Jaucho trackmen, with one of the smallest squads, scored an impressive third while competing with the smaller colleges of Southern California. Santa Monica won first place with 32 points, Pepperdine took second with 31 points and Santa Barbara tied Compton with 21 ' i points. In the two triangular meets Santa Barbara has outclassed her rivals by a good margin, the first meet being Santa Barbara qi, Whittier 27 ' , and Pomona oYi.

Coach Terry Dearborn, whose pre-war team s were Conference Champions or runner-up, found no returning players, and all Freshmen but one. Nevertheless, the 1946 team has dem- onstrated fair strength and promises well for the future. The team was victorious in its first match of the season, downing the Santa Barbara Tennis Club 8 to 4. Its second contest brought an easy win over Loyola University, 5 to i at Los Ange- les. The following week the netmen traveled ' South to drop a double headed, 3 to 6 to a strong Pepperdine College squad, and i to 8 to a powerful University of Redlands sextet. With six of the intercollegiate matches yet to come, the Dearborn men will meet Fresno State and San Diego State at Santa Barbara, where they also play return matches with Loy- ola, Pepperdine and University of Redlands. A four man team will travel to San Jose for the Conference Championship matches. The first ten men on the 1946 tennis squad, in their order of rank, are: first, Juan Solis, then Alan Cobbe, Larry Wathey, Stanford Bingham, John Sanders, Joel Andrews, Keith Simpson, Merritt Sloniker, Stewart White, and Bob Walsh. The first six men comprised the travel- ing team. FOOTBALL Football has its coming out party tor Santa Barbara and from the looks of things a healthy year is in store as Coach Stan Williamson has returned from his Navy duties to take charge of the gridiron once again. Spring practice shosved that the possibilities of a top-flight team arc in the making. If the growth of sports, as well as the school ' s growth continues, it is very probable that a place can lie developed in the Pacific Coast Conference. Prospects for the fall look good with Eddie Saenz, a former ' -i2 student at U.S.C. He led the coast i n ground gained in 1943 with an 8.8 average and also the Helni " s Ath- letic Award for that year. In 1944 he played for Great Lakes and was one of the nation ' s leading ground gainers, scoring sixty points. Left guard Joe Rossi, two hundred pounder from Santa Barbara High School, a twen- ty-one year old freshman looks big, rugged and powerful. He is a brother of Cal Rossi, All-Coast back from U. C. L. A. Just a few of the possibilities are listed here, others looking good were: Jack Miller, Fred Lloyd and Ed Grabast at Fullback; Sam Cathcart, Right Half; Tom Burt, Right Guard; Bob Stockton, Jack Vogt, Guard; Jack Jeffcoat, tackle; George CJraves, Center; Johnny Moffat, Right Half; N ' ince Jacobsmeyer, Left Half; and John Seedborg at Quar- terback. About 50 first class football players enrolled at the college during Spring registration. Be- low are some of the men in action; they are Eddie Saenz (left), Saenz and Ed Grabast (center) and Jack Miller (right). WOMEN ' S SPORTS For the first time in four dears, the Women ' s Physical Education Department sponsored a play day. Over 150 students from 15 high schools participated In the sports program; above are photos of ping pong, bad- iiiiiitoii, volleyball and baseball. The group below is the chanii i()nship Chi Delta Chi basketball team. The Women ' s Athletic Association is one of the most active groups on the campus. Besides stressing a stronger and continuous interest in athletics, it hrecds a wholesome and cooperative attitude between women students. Fall semester began with a large turn-out for hockey and basketball. Spring seinester offered soft ball as the main after-school sport. With the enthusiasm of the girls and aided by the kindness of the weatherman, it proved to have a successful season. Many types of sports, both team and individual, were played throughout the school year. W.A.A. sponsored the intra-mural volley ball tournaments in which C ' hi Delta Chi placed high- est in inter-sorority games, and Lynnhaven highest in non-sorority organizations. In the final play-off between these two teams, Chi Delts were judged the superior. Resumed again this year was the annual playday for senior women in neighboring schools. Girls from fifteen schools were invited to participate in the activities. The day scheduled registration for the representatives from the different schools, a get-acquaint- ed assembly, two game periods, lunch, an A.W.S. program, and a tour of the Riviera and Mesa Campus. A fiesta theme was carried throughout the day. Two major events on the women ' s sport.s program during the S|iriii;c semester was the telegraphic arehery contest and the dance concert. Mary Ducey, Barbara Ghincy. Deane Hanson and I ' at Wood (left to right) were members of the archery team. Cecil Simms took n leading role in the dance program.
