PRINCIPAL ' S MESSAGE The most important event of this year, to all of us, has been the completion of our two new building units, the Shop-Music unit and the Boys ' Gymna- sium. With these new facilities, our program in instrumental music, crafts, woodshop and metal- shop can be greatly improved. The boys have a beautiful new building for physical education, and all pupils will use and enjoy the main gym room, with folding bleachers for spectators. The girls will now have exclusive use of the " old " gymnasium, with improved locker and shower rooms, and new lockers. As usual, our pupils have done well this year in scholarship and citizenship, and in interschool sports and contests. City championships won by Willard this year are: volleyball, L-8 girls and H-8 and L-9 boys basketball, H-8 girls ' and boys ' Class A, B, and D teams. In the American Legion essay contest, Willard pupils won first place in both the boys ' and the girls ' divisions. The annual Spring Concert was unusually fine, and our boys and girls will make a good showing in the Northern Cali- fornia Music Festival, the Junior Traffic Review, and the annual track meet. In all these activities our High Nines have had an important part, and we wish them continued success in high school. H. N. McClellan. PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Mr. Mc- Clellan, Mr. Sitkin, and the Student Council this term. At the time of this writing the council has not been overly active but several new ideas have been suggested. For instance, we are presently considering a new method for nominating student body officers. The sale of Student Body cards had the highest per cent since the fall of 1951, probably due to the fact that more privileges were offered. Many changes have occurred during the present term at Willard. A new initiation has been set up, in which all the proceedings take place in the audi- torium under the direction of a group of students appointed by Mr. McClellan, Mr. Dell ' Ergo, and Mr. Berry. The new Shop-Music building and the new Boys ' Gymnasium were put into use in March. On behalf of the graduating High Nines, I would like to thank Mr. McClellan, Mr. Dell ' Ergo, and the rest of the faculty for working so patiently with us these three enjoyable years at Willard. I would also like to express my good wishes to my fellow High Nines going on to Berkeley High, and to the rest of the Student Body who will stay here at Willard. Pete Herb.
