Central History Room 373.236T174W Spring 1952 The target TARGET SPRING 1952 Published by Students of the WILLARD JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL Berkeley, California BERKELEY PUBLIC LIBRARY PRINCIPAL ' S MESSAGE This has been one of Willard ' s most successful years. A large number of pupils have earned scholarship and citizenship awards, and the general tone of the school has been much above average. In the American Legion Essay Contest, a Willard girl won first place, and three of our pupils won Scholastic Art Awards. The Band and Orchestra each won " Excellent ' awards in the Northern California Music Festival. The Girls ' and Boys ' Glee Clubs gave their usual fine concerts, and took part in the City Music Festival on May 22. Our sport teams have acquitted themselves creditably on court and field, and have shown fine sportsmanship. To all of you, well done, and to our High Nines, good luck as they go on to Berkeley High. H. N. McClellan. PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE Due to the efforts of the students and faculty members in the various school organizations, this term has been most successful. The Low Seven initiation and the sale of student body cards were carried out with great success. The Rally Committee and Girls ' League have both done an outstanding job. A very fine sports program was planned and carried out by the Athletic Commis- sioners. This year we have seen a new building program come almost to com- pletion. I would like to thank all the faculty advisors and student officers with whom I have worked this term for their help and cooperation. I have thoroughly en- joyed being your president and appreciate the honor. On behalf of the graduates I would like to thank Mr. McClellan, Miss Dart and the other members of the faculty for working so patiently and understand- ing with us during our three years at Willard.

Kangaroo Court took care of a few un- cooperative Low Sevens and those who scrubbed when they weren’t in the High Nine. A week later the Girls ' League had the first noon dance of the term honoring the Low Sevens. The following Friday the Mississippians came to entertain us. They sang Negro spirituals and folk songs. On February 8, the Girls ' League again honored the Low Seven girls. This time it was a big sister party. The next event of the term was the Founders ' Day dinner, February 13. The following noon the Y-teens presented a marvelous cookie and candy sale. A fashion show was the event of the next day. The girls modeled darling clothes from Simplicity patterns. To celebrate the birthdays of great men and women born in January and February, " A February Birthday Party " was given by a group of High Nine students in assembly on February 21. A free movie was put on, February 29, for all student body card holders. The whole audience enjoyed the show. The Girls ' League presented the first night dance for the semester, the Leap Year Hop, Friday eve- ning, February 29. Girls ask boys! The Saturday Knights played at intervals for it. An interesting conservation film was given at assembly, March 7. The next Friday the Rally committee sponsored an afterschool dance. This active group gave another dance at noon March 26. Scholarship awards were made March 28, at a double assembly. April 4, was the date for the second night dance. The Eighth An- nual Ra ' ly Dance was a bright one. The Girls ' League again stepped in to sponsor a noon dance, April 16. The glee clubs, orchestra and band combined to produce a beautiful Spring Concert on April 24. The first Student Council meeting, April 25, discussed and decided that the theme for Spring Day would be a circus. Every class turned out interesting and different displays for Open House on May I. There were many, many parents and friends interested in the work. The next day an afterschool dance was given by the Rally Committee. The State Music Festival was May 2. The band and orchestra each entered and received ratings of " ex- cellent. " Spring Day was the climax of the semester. The ceremony of crowning Nancy Page and Bruce Rogers as queen and king was the highlight of the day. There were costumes galore and such ingeni- ous creations. Track and variety shows were ap- plauded by all. The High-Nine dinner dance was on June 6. Graduation on June I 3 was a perfect ending to a successful spring term. 9 LOW NINES Marvin Ackers Peter Ambler Creston Bastin Barbara Boyce Alice Braxton Donald Brown Billie Jean Carter Ralph Cross Camille Cunningham Celeste Dean Barry Eaton Kiyoshi Endow Mary Fittinghoff Paul Fitzgibbon Sandra Fleischer Don Furuzawa James Greenwood Robert Harris Clinton Hilliard Sonja Hoff Patricia Holland Joanne Holmes Carol Ivey Adam Joseph Tanya Johnson Sandy Kaya Richard Mclntire Fred Nakamura Donna Jean Parker Robin Rich Sandy Robertson Dorothy Schafer Ruth Simmons Jerry Slagle Myron Smith Frances Standberry Lawrence Stewart James Stewart James Takefuji Allen Thomas Grove Thomas Karen Trice Mitsuki Tsuchida Myrtle Turner Louise Willis Rosealeigh Wilson Gary Wood Linda Wood Howard Yamamoto Gary Yates Fukuyo Yoshimo CAMERA SHY Luvell Benford Elma Lervold 10 LOW NINE HOROSCOPE Name Noted For Pet Peeve Ambition Fate Marvin Ackers ... his hair messy hair .... barber ..toupee Peter Ambler ... disposition... ..none landlord ..henpecked husband Crestin Bastin ... reptiles all teachers bossy principal. ..pupil (forever) Luvell Benford ...girls... no girls more oirls ..bachelor Barbara Boyce.. ...algebra algebra teachers All A ' s ..A minuses Alice Braxton ... independence dependence _. dependents.. ..independence Donald Brown ....stri-i-ke ball players club owner.. . popcorn vender Billie Jean Carter... ...speed slow runners...

The club has done service work for the Red Cross. Some of the things are as follows: 375 greeting cards, posters, 60 posters for Christmas, 50 posters for Easter, an International project, the decorations for the March faculty meeting, the graduation decora- tions, and assistance in making the Target. The Art Club has done a wonderful job this year. It will do even better in the coming years. FRIENDS OVERSEAS The Friends Overseas Club was formed in the early part of this year. The officers are Bobbie Lee Preddy, Penelope Wolf and Helen Tahefuji. The purpose of the club is to encourage correspondence with boys and girls of other countries. Membership to date is 35. Membership is restricted to H-7, L-8, and H-8 students. The Science-Hobby Club was organized at Willard this year to encourage students to develop worth- while hobbies. The meetings have been devoted to sharing hob- bies with one another. In the future, it is planned to have an annual hobby show. JUNIOR RED CROSS The Willard Junior Red Cross has had a very suc- cessful year. It started out last summer by sending Roger Miller as a delegate to the Junior Red Cross Summer Training Camp. He has served very effec- tively as president during the past year. Roger was also elected to the presidency of the Berkeley-Albany Junior Red Cross Council. In the fall Willard carried out the following proj- ects: 225 Christmas toys were collected for Berkeley ' s needy children; 203 Christmas gift boxes were col- lected for shipment overseas; 375 Christmas cards and 60 Christmas posters were made by the art classes for the Veterans ' Hospital at Oak Knoll; 40 articles were made in the sewing classes for the Red Cross. Bob Hoffman and Barbara Clement collabor- ated on an article to be sent in to the JRC Journal (the article describes our Christmas poster project). Mrs. Kellogg ' s and Miss Bonney ' s Glee Clubs partici- pated in the International Music project. In the spring semester the H-7 Science classes carrired out a rat-feeding experiment for the purpose of studying nutrition. The Science classes also took part in the Junior Red Cross Blood program. The Art classes made 50 posters for Oak Knoll ' s Easter Ob- servance. They also participated in the International Art Project, decorated tin cans for flower vases, and made posters for Flower Day. Willard collected $52.42 to be donated to the Junior Red Cross. We had a Flower Day in which we collected flowers for the Veterans ' Hospital. We collected pocket books. The sewing classes made dresses, layettes and stuffed toys. The following people served as our Junior Red Cross Council at Willard: Roger Miller, Bill Dillon, Sharon Chan, May Hessing, and Susan Singer. These people have spent many hours in planning and help- ing to successfully carry out the many projects at Willard. Our thanks to all students and teachers who helped with the Junior Red Cross program. 13 STUDENT CONTROL The Student Control is an organization to help serve the student body. It is made up of boys selected for their reliability, dependability and citizenship. In the school proper, the Student Control keeps order in the halls, issuing tickets to those who refuse to obey and follow the rules. They also guard the bikes in the bike lot and serve three weeks a semester as Junior Traffic Police out on the streets, directing traffic and guarding you while you cross the streets. We have had a good term this year and I want to thank all the officers who worked with me. My rank- ing officers have been: Capt. Richard Jarrett, Lieut. Fred Nakamura, Lieut. James Hunter, Sgt. Mike Mahoney, Sgt. Bill Erwin, Sgt. Harry Chandler, Sgt. Gary Wood, Sgt. Gerald Millward, Sgt. Taka Kawa- kami, Sgt. Anatol Eberhard. Don Wonder, Chief of Police. STUDENT COURT The purpose ot the court is to try pupils who are issued tickets by the Student Control officers for in- fractions of the Student Control rules. In sentencing these pupils we do not try to punish them or give them harsh sentences. Offenders are judged fairly and the individual sentences differ according to the seriousness of the offense. During the past year we have handled ap- proximately 200 tickets for infractions of the Stu- dent Control rules. The judges also serve on the Berkeley Bicycle Court at the Hal! of Justice on Saturday mornings. The court is made up of Mr. Burke, our sponsor, my associate judges, Peter Ambler, Joyce Heina- men and Donna Baird, Bailiff Don Wonder, Desk Clerk Mary Fittinghoff, Detention Clerks Jean Sar- kela, Karen Trice, and Sally Lidstone, and Sergeant Dorothy Schafer. Bob Fudgei ch ; ef Jus+ice Willard Student Court. 14 STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council at Willard discusses and handles all business concerning the student body. This council is a vital part of Willard ' s student gov- ernment. It is composed of the president, vice-presi- dent, secretary, advisory representatives and student commissioners. Mr. McClellan is the faculty advisor. The student body president presides over all Stu- dent Council meetings. The president and the faculty advisor make final decisions on all mafters of the student body. All meetings are conducted in parlia- mentary fashion. Nancy Page, President. SCHOLARSHIP SOCIETY A very important organization at Willard is the Scholarship Society. Anyone with a " B " average or above is eligible for membership. Awards are given each year. In order to receive a certificate for good scholarship, students must obtain grade points of from 2.00 to 2.45. Students obtaining grade points of from 2.50 to 3.00 receive a certificate for superior scholarship. Students on Superior Scholarship through Low 9, receive a gold " W, " the highest award given. If these pupils maintain their superior grades in the High 9, they may keep the gold " W. " Another award, special privilege cards, are issued to High 9 students who have always been on Superior Scholarship. These cards permit the owner to go to his locker from a class, leave the room on the first bell, go to the library without a pass, and leave his advisory to see another teacher. There are 204 members of fhe Scholarship Scciefy this year. Thirteen students received the gold " W. " Barbara Doyle. 15 GIRLS ' GLEE CLUB The Girls’ Glee Club has had a very successful year under the excellent leadership of Miss Bonney. We sang Christmas songs for the P.-T.A. and for the school. We also made a record for the Red Cross, singing one of our Christmas numbers, " Yuletide Is Here, " a Swedish dance carol. We were pleased when the Red Cross director complimented us on our beautiful tone quality. Our officers were Janelle Carr, Gweneilen Jones and Joy Cox. This spring we have participated in the Spring Concert, Open House and the Music Festival at the Berkeley Community Theater. The three Junior High School glee clubs combined for the festival. We have enjoyed learning a variety of songs under the ex- pert guidance of Miss Bonney. Dorothy Stanley and Jackie Hineline have assisted me as officers this term. Alice Taylor. BOYS ' GLEE CLUB The Boys’ Glee Club, one of the most popular or- ganizations of Willard, has come through another very successful year. Under the excellent direction of Mrs. Edna Kellogg, and with the full cooperation of the boys, we have had the pleasure of singing on many occasions. We sang Christmas Carols for the December P.-T.A. meeting, and for the student body. We felt very honored at being invited to sing for the Rotary Club luncheon at the Hotel Shattuck on January 23. Also among our programs was the Spring Concert on April 24, and the Berkeley Schools Pageant on May 22, which was held at the Berkeley High School auditorium. The Glee Club consists of 90 members who all have very good voices. With their help, and that of my fellow officers, Dave White, vice-president, and Mike Mahoney, secretary, it has been easy to work along with the boys and I enjoyed every bit of it. Bruce Rogers. 16 BAND This year, under the expert direction of Mr. Thomas R. Caldwell, the Willard Band has made excellent progress. The band played for the Le Conte School Halloween Parade and for the graduation of the Auxiliary Police at the Berkeley High School Little Theater. We paraded, gave a drill demonstration, and played for the Berkeley Traffic Review. We are entering the Northern California Music Festival competition. We hope to equal our " superior " rating of last year. If you want to play an instrument — join the band. Willard will gladly loan you the instrument. ORCHESTRA t Under the capable direction of Mr. Thomas R. Caldwell, our Willard School Orches- tra has had another successful year. The orchestra played for the P.-T.A., Open House, assemblies, the Spring Concert, and for the graduations. May 2 we entered the California State Music Festival and received a rating of excellent. 17 GIRLS ' SPORTS This year the volleyball and basket- ball teams did pretty well in the inter- scholastic games. In the volleyball games the L-8 and H-8’s came in sec- ond. The L-9 ’ s won all their games but the poor H-9’s lost all of theirs. In basketball season we were highly successful. Again the L-8 ' s and H-8 ' s came in second. The L-9’s came out with the championship. The H-9 ' s were in a three-way tie for the champion- ship. In baseball the L-8 ' s and the L-9 ' s came out not so well with the loss of all their games. The H-8 ' s won one of their games and lost the other. The H-9 ' s did better this time. They won two of their games and lost one. We all have enjoyed working with Mrs. Abbott and Miss Mason. We hope we will do. just as well or better next season. Nancy Hickox. BOYS ' SPORTS The year 1951-52 was more than generous to Willard with its share of victories in inter- school sports. In volleyball the L-8 ' s and H-8 ' s were inter-school champions with four wins and no defeats. The L-9 ' s tied with Garfield for first place, each school having three wins and one loss. The poor H-9 ' s failed to show this year, taking it on the chin four in a row. In basketball the best team this year turned out to be the I 05 ' s . They were unde- feated all year. The 95 ' s came in next with three wins and one loss, tying Garfield for the championship. The Unlimited ' s and I I 5 ' s ended up about fifty-fifty. The Unlimited ' s lost two to Burbank but were able to take Garfield ' s measure twice. The I I5 ' s, off fo a good start with one win, were plagued by sickness and ended up with a one-win three- loss record. In softball the H-9 ' s defeated the L-9 ' s to represent the school and ended the inter- school season with two wins and two losses. The H-8 ' s represented the lower division and won their only game from Burbank. They lost the second game to Burbank and both games to Garfield. Sandy Kaya. BLOCK " W " (BOYS) To become a member of the Block " W " Club you must participate on one of the inter-school teams: softball, basketball, vol- leyball or track. During the first of the semester we met to select officers for the year, and to plan for the annual bean feed. This year has been a successful one with many new members added. We hope that many who are not yet members of the Block " W " will soon join. Richard Jarrett. BLOCK " W " (GIRLS) The Block " W " Club for the girls is made up of those who have earned letters and stars by participating in any of the inter- school sports: volleyball, basketball, softball, or track. The officers elected by the mem- bers are: President, Caroline Haven and Secretary, Nancy Hickox. Together with the boys ' organization we sponsored the annual Bean Feed for parents, teachers, and students, which went off very successfully this year. The club has grown by leaps and bounds as many more have earned awards this year. Judy Kinsell. 19 RALLY COMMITTEE The purpose of the Rally Committee is to build up school spirit. I think we have done that quite well this year. The committee has been improved by enlarging to seventeen members and by making a definite set of rules for members to follow. We have also started using a new type of Rally hat which is like a cap in- stead of the old beanie. The Rally Committee has been one of the most active of the school clubs, sponsoring dances at noon and after school. Our two big night dances were very well attended and everyone seemed to enjoy them. The P.-T.A. has expressed its thanks for the Com- mittee’s assistance in the P.-T.A. activities. I ' m sure that the Rally Committee will continue to be a leader among the school clubs. Howard Young. GIRLS ' LEAGUE The Girls’ League has had a very successful term. There was a Big Sister party which consisted of a small variety show and refreshments. Many of the girls took part. Our Leap YearH op .which wasthebig night dance, went over in a big way. A large number attended. We also have had quite a few noon and afterschool dances. The full cooperation and help from Mrs. Conrad, the Senior Committee, and the Girls ' League have helped to promote friendship between the girls and to make this term a very pleasant and successful one. Caroline Haven, President. Barbara Littlejohn, Vice-President. Jackie Hineline, Secretary. 20 THE FACULTY SAYS . . .
