Nutwood Ave Suite Fullerton, CA 714-278-3373 THE TITAN The establishment of Orange County State Col- lege was authorized by the State Legislature in 1957. The master plan called I for a campusto provide for up to 20,000 students by 1980. While this projected enrollment would make this college one of the largest in the world, there are facts to support the long-range planning necessary to pre- pare for a large number of students. Two comprehensive reports on the mounting pop- ulation of Orange County show that this county, the fastest growing in the state, has nearly tripled in pop- ulation since 1950. Nearly 77 per cent of the habit- able land remains availableforfuture urban develop- ment. Public school enrollment isforecastto increase from 143,000 to 520,000 in 1980. The purpose of this yearbook, The Titan, is to re- cord some of the achievements during the first two years of operation of this college. It is hoped that this book will serve as a historical record of the early days and, also, will show some of the achievements and contributions of students and faculty who are helping to build an institution of quality as well as size. Students and faculty can look back on two success- ful years. Certainly the problems associated with growing are present, but there have been some im- pressive steps made and permanent foundations laid for what promises to be a challenging and interesting future. It is the hope of the Titan that this yearbook in some small way will make a contribution, too, to this building for the future.

DeBolt Sue Reilly Dave Sprague a- It takes a lot of thought for a yearbook staff to select a theme idea and to decide on the content of the cover. This year the Titan staff thought the word BUILDING best described what has been going on here for the past two years and what will occur in the immediate future years. This term not only refers to cement, lumber, and nails, butalso to a building of curriculum, student body organizations and activities , and cultural developments. The BUILDING theme is carried out on the cover with a reproduction of plans for what promises to be the biggest building of all, a six-story science structure which will serve asthe college ' sfirstpermanent build- ing upon completion in 1963. ORANGE COUNTY STAT 1 President William B. Langsdorf Dean of Instruction Gerhard E. Ehmann " Above all, we want a faculty with broad vision, a concern for students, and the ability to challenge, stimulate, and inspire young, and older, men and women.... " As a faculty we are dedicated to quality. " President William B. Langsdorf depicted Orange County State College as centering around faculty and students in his commence- ment address in June, 1960. It is appropriate that the Titan honor Pres- ident Langsdorf, an outstanding educational leader, who has contributed significantly to- ward the early success of this college. Dr. Langsdorf was called by Dr. Roy Simp- son, state superintendent of public education, on January 16, 1959 to become president of the " new state college to be built in Orange County. " When Dr. Langsdorf, former president of Pasadena City College, arrived in the area on March 2, 1959, to begin his new duties, he found that he was a president without a col- lege, professors, administrators, classrooms or even an office. President Langsdorf made two important appointments which were to start the forma- tion of an outstanding faculty. Dr. Stuart F. McComb was appointed ex- ecutive Dean charged with the responsibility of developing the college ' s building program. Dr. Gerhard E. Ehmann was appointed Dean of Instruction with the responsibility of developing the curriculum and hiring the in- structional staff. The Titan would like also to honor these two men who have provided significant lead- ership in the formative days of this college. Executive Dean Stuart F. McComb 2 After President William B. La.ngsdorf appoint- ed Executive Dean Stuart F. McComb and Dean of Instruction Gerhard E. Ehmann, the college began preparations to receive its first students. The three established offices in a building on the Fullerton Union High School campus and began the important job of search- ing for experienced educators to provide the leadership for developing an outstanding faculty. Six faculty members taught the college ' s first classes in buildings on the Sunny Hills High School campus. When these classes opened in September 1959, the first student to register was Anthony Lombard. There were soon 107 full-time students and 352 students who carried a program of seven units or less. Soon students organized as the Associated Students and formed a provisional council steering committee which led to the college ' s first student body officers. They were Joe Stephens, president; Joe Clayes, treasurer; and Betty Buck, secretary. More than 100 students participated in the first social event, a dance held in the La Habra High School gymnasium. The college newspaper, Titan Times, started publication on January 4, 1960, and this helped to inform the students of progress and future activities. Commencement exercises on June 10,1960 highlighted the first year. Candidates for graduation were Faye Z. Corwin, Ryland C. Gibbs, Margaret Opsahl, Shirley Saydman, and Joseph G. Stephens. The group was pre- sented to President Langsdorf by Dr. Seth Fessenden. The college moved to the permanent campus at 800 North Cypress Avenue in Fullerton where construction will start soon on the first permanent building. Temporary buildings were filled in August and the early days of September with equipment --- later in Septem- ber with students. Students were impressed with the ease of registration, and advisementduring the regis- tration period was, in most cases, immediate and complete. The final count of studentswas 1069 for the Fall term. The growth in enroll- ment over the first year was 350%, largest percentage-wise of any state college in Calif- ornia. The science department received research grants of $52,000 for three professors. The department also initiated a series of science seminars which were among the first events held for students on campus. In October students went to the polls a month ahead of the national elections. They elected Bill Raub to lead the Senior Class and Doug Dyer to head the Junior Class. These two officers joined the previously elected student leaders: Joe Moody, student body president; Tony Lombard, vice president; Nancy Speak- man, secretary; and Joe Clayes, treasurer. Plans were started for an Associated Women Students organization and other clubs and activities were planned. Carolyn Bridge was named the first editor of the Titan Times and Don Andersen was chosen managing editor. Coach Alex Omalev welcomed members of his first basketball team to initial practice drills, and members of the college ' s other intercoll- egiate team, forensics, began competition. The first social dance of year was held October 29, and a newly formed service club, the Oracles chose Pierre de Grignon as pres- ident. The college held a successful Open House in November. During the Spring semester, plans were outlined for the three new sports, and the writing of the Constitution took a good share of time. Accomplishments were plentiful the first two years! 3 MILES D. McCARTHY SETH A. FESSENDEN Science Faculty Chairman MARY S. REED BARBARA A. HARTSIG Education Education LESTER BEALS LAWRENCE B. deGRAAF Education Social Science The administration and faculty were originally housed in an old science build- ing on the campus of Fullerton Union High School. Classes began in the fall of 1959, on the new Sunny Hills High School campus. The first faculty was composed of Dr. Lester Beak of the education department, Lawrence B. deGraaf of the social science department, Dr. Seth A. Fessenden, the faculty chairman, Dr. Barbara A. Hartsig, of the education department, Dr. Miles D. McCarthy, science, and Mrs. Mary S. Reed, education. Many amusing incidents occurred dur- ing that first year. Dr. Fessenden had the first casualty of the semester when a student fainted in class. Mr. deGraaf ' s first contact with Orange County State College was when approaching the col- lege he was confronted by sawhorses and lumber. He had a daily visitor who wasn ' t a student, but a squeaking mouse! Dr. Beals remembers the happy coffee times and in contrastthe difficulty of getting into the building during the rainy season be- cause of the resulting mud. Muddy shoes were quite common! Mr. Ryan, who came in January, ran the bookstore which was in a former ' darkroom ' . The bookstore started out with a capital of $10.00. In the spring of 1960, during March, the staff moved to the Mahr House, a large Spanish style home at 800 North Cypress. All six faculty had desks and files in one room and the staff consisted of ap- proximately 27 people. The President ' s office was upstairs. Mr. Lyons, the Bus- iness Manager,was in the breakfast room. The heating problem was solved by the burning of trash in the fireplace, and the secretaries along with their many other duties took turns making the coffee and fighting off mosquitoes. They also had a maternity ward for pigeons on the upper story. Vegetables were found in the back yard along with the coke machine, and in the front was a most appreciated rose garden. After a very warm and dry summer, the staff, amidst clouds of dust, moved during the last weeks of August 1960, into new administrative buildings. These would serve as a " temporary " home. 4 FIRST STUDENT COUNCIL--Members of the first Student Council were: (from left) Joe Clayes, Treasurer; Joe Stephens, President; Betty Buck, Secretary; Joe Moody, Vice-President, (standing) Ron Bristow, Advisor. FIRST GRADUATES Five members of the first graduating class of the new college received their di- plomas in commencement exercises June 10, 1960 at the Fullerton Junior College Student Union. They are (from left) Ryland G. Gibbs, Margaret Opsahl, Faye Cor- win, Shirley Lee Saydman and Joseph Stephens. This history-making group received diplomas from President William Langsdorf. Supervisor William Phillips delivered the commencement address, " Challenge of the Future; Research and Planning. " Dr. Winston Trever of the Fullerton First Methodist Church offered the invocation and benediction. Joseph G. Stephens, the college ' s first student president, gave the Class Farewell. That the heart of a good college is a quality faculty is a fact stressed many times by President William B. Langsdorf, who,along with other members of the college administration, has searched throughout the country for qualified professors and instructors for this college. The col- lege opened its first year with a faculty of six and in September, 1960, there were 48. Next fall this is expected to reach approximately 77. The faculty represents extensive teaching experience in collegesand univer- sities throughout the country. In addition to hours devoted to teaching and advising students, fac- ulty members have contributed countless hours to Faculty Council busi- ness includi ng work on a Constitution and to work on long-range plans necessary for a college building for the future. Responsible for much of the coordinating of the instructional program are the six division chair men. MILES D. McCARTHY SETH A. FESSENDEN GILES T.

Most students here agree that one of the out- standing features of Orange County State College has been the excellent working partnership be- tween faculty and students. Unlike many colleges, where long registration lines and little time for ad- visement is available, Orange County State Coll- ege has offered students many opportunities to confer at length with professors at many times dur- ing the year including the busy registration periods in September and February. In addition, faculty members have joined stu- dents at numerous times during the year in activ- ities. An orange-picking festival to raise scholar- ship funds, golf tournaments, and intramural activ- ities are a few of these joint activities. A number of faculty members also served as advisors to stu- dent clubs and organizations that were started dur- ing the past two years. In fact, all employees of the college have worked together, and it is hoped, that the friendly spirit among students and staff members which has pre- vailed during the past year will continue in future years.

A committee was chosen to study the choice of a class gift to the college, a ring design for the Senior Class Ring, and social activities for the year. One of the first social successes enjoyed on campus was a cider sale in early Nov- ember. Work then started on the Senior Class constitution. Plans for a Spring Banquet in May were formulated and the event was held at the Disneyland Hotel. The dinnerwas preceded by a social hour.Jack Conklin was the social chairman for the dinner dance. This was the top social event of the year and culminated years of work and achievement for the graduates. Senior class officers played an im- portant part in student government, and many steps were taken to build a number of activities for the seniors during the im- portant final year of college.

Soon after classes opened the first year the students voted to organize as Associated Students. They elected student government officers: Joe Stephans, pres- ident; Joe Moody, vice-president; Joe Clayes, treasurer, and Betty Buck, secretary. Together these officers formed the first student council of Orange County State College. This first student council set up an emergency loan fund for the benefit of O.C.S. students --- formed a Constitution and By-laws Committee and accomplished other building steps. In April of 1960, new student officers were elected. They were Joe Moody, president; Tony Lombard, vice-president; Nancy Speakman, secretary; and Joe Clayes, Treasurer. This new council immediately set out to begin other progres- sive achievements. Early in the school year the special activ- ities commissioner and the athleticcommissioner were inaugur- ated. Later three new commissioners were added to the stu- dent government. They were publications commissioner, as- semblies and lectures commissioner, and organizations com- missioner. A student insurance program was made available on a vol- untary basis to all students. This program offers coverage 24 hours a day to help students meet the expenses of accidents or illnesses incurred either on or off the campus. The new council also helped to develop the constitution of Orange County State. This constitution states the purposes and philosophies of the student body and defines the duties and ob- ligations of each member of the student council. Other activities of this student council have been participa- tion in the development of forensics and athletics and the estab- lishment of the college news bureau. Soon after the school opened the students began to form various social and service organizations. Two service clubs are now operating and they are the Assoc- iated Women Students and the Oracles. Miss Carolyn Bridge was elected the first A.W.S. president. She was assisted by Martha Thompson, vice-president; Paula Jones, secretary-treasurer; Jackie Lampher, corresponding sec- retary; Sunny Smith, historian; and Marilyn Clark, Publicity chairman. The A.W.S. has undertaken many activities such as a candy sale, a bake sale. and a search for a site for the pro- posed cooperative nursery school. Scotty McTaggart is the president of the Oracles. He has been assisted by Clyde Morris, vice president; Tom Milne, secretary - treasurer; and Everett Moore, master-at-arms. The Oracles sponsored a car wash, served as guides at re- gistration and sponsored an after game dance during basket- ball season. Other clubs to be organized this year were the Snow and Water Ski Club, the International Relations Club, and a men ' s social fraternity. Some of the student activities have included dances, both formal and informal, a picnic at Irvine park, a taco sale, and an orange picking day. Early in the spring Miss Caryll Egerer was elected Basket- ball Queen and was presented with her royal court at an after the game dance. Now that the college is coming out of its infancy, rela- tively organized, students can look back and see that the last two years have been so successful mainly because of the efforts of the administration, faculty, and student govern- ment. 18 Student Council members at work George Renfro Bob Walters Carolyn Bridge Stewart Rogers Everett Moore 19 FRONT ROW: I.

CAROLYN BRIDGE, President The first organization formed on campus for women students was the Associated Women Students ' Organ- ization. After a constitution was built and passed by the Student Council, the members elected officers for the year. The first officers consisted of Car- olyn Bridg e, president; Martha Thompson, vice-president; Paula Jones, secretary-treasurer; Jackie Lampher, corresponding secretary; Sunny Smith, historian, and Marilyn Clark, Publicity. Vice President Mar- tha Thompson resigned at the end of the sem ester and Barbara Sutherland was elected to that position. The AWS members began the year by serving as hostesses for Open House held in October. AWS co- sponsored, with the Oracles, a cloth- ing drive. The clothing was collected and sent to Indians in New Mexico. In February the group sponsored the first Basketball Queen contest held on campus. The Queen was presented at half-time and reigned over the dance held after the game.

SIC CLUB KEN SMITH, President Interested students on campus began think- ing about organizing a Snow-Ski Club in the fall of 1960. Actual plans for the club and the acquisition of an adviser were problems that were overcome easily with the help of George Turner, who is a certified snow-ski instructor at Green Valley Ski Hill in the San Bernardino Mountains. Since he is an associate professor of Biology, he offered his services as the club adviser. This spring the Snow and Water Ski Club had meetings on theory and snow ski tech - niqueadong with the informative talks given by George Turner, the group viewed many movies of snow skiing resorts in California and in the United States. One movie a week is be- coming a standard in the club. Officers include Ken Smith, president; Rod Howorth, vice-pres- ident; Gail Mckay, secretary-treasurer. 21 TOP ROW: J. Hale, D. Double, W.

ORAC,L, PIERRE DeGRIGNON The college ' s first men ' s organ- ization, the Oracles, was formed in the fall of 1960 to, " promote the general welfare of Orange County State College by service, " as ex- pressed in the clubconstitution, with leadership, scholarship and charac- ter development as the aim. Club members served as guides at the first open house at the college in November, 1960. Members have also acted as ushers at school con- certs and plays, and supplied per- sonnel to man the gates at basket- ball games. The club ' s motto, " Ophelia, " is a Greek word meaning, " to be of ser- vice, " and toward this end the Orac- cles have directed their efforts. Oracle officers the first year were: Scotty McTaggart, President; Clyde Morris, Vice President; Tom Milne, Secretary-treasurer; Everett Moore, Master-at-Arms. SCOTTY McTAGGART 12 SAM COOPER A fraternity is a blend of many ideas, back- grounds and beliefs, moulded into a working, moving force. An organization of this type was needed at the beginning of the year, and an interested assemblage of men formed the nucleus to establish the first social fraternity on campus, with Sam Cooper, president; and Charles Grant, adviser. With help from the Administration, the group organized the basic constitution incorporating the many ideas of national fraternities. Membership now ex- ceeds twenty men with plans for systematic pledging to begin during the fall semester of 1961. Future plans are now being formed, and within five years it is hoped to have a national fraternity charter which will spread the name of Orange County State College across the country. In this manner our organization feels proud to representour college, and looks forward to accomplishing the goals which have been formulated. TOP ROW: D. Sprague, T. Kirkconnell, A. McTaggart, C.

Miss Egerer was sponsored by the Oracles. Her royal court in- cluded Miss Pat Kreske, sponsored by theJunior Class; Miss Nancy Speakman, sponsored by the Senior Class; Miss Sherri Hughes, sponsored by the Sigmas; and Miss Carolyn Bridge, sponsored by the A. W. S. Kicking off the social season of the year, the Queen and her court were presented at the firstcouplesonly dance of the school ' s history. The dance washeldatthewomen ' s gym at Anaheim High School after the game. Joe Moody, president of the Associated Students, and Miss Egerer ' s escort of the evening, crowned thewinner and presented her with one dozen red roses. Caryll, a senior, was a member of the A.W.S. and also a song leader. Dr. James D. Young, Associate pro- fessor of Speech and Drama , believes that the theater centers around people, their needs, hopes and aspirations. Dr. Young has said that " theater is more than an art and a commercial com- modity as it is the means by which the emotional and social aspects of life are revealed. " Orange County State ' s drama depart- ment presented a series of six one act plays this year. A total of 24 students participated in the productions which in- cluded Rupert Browe ' s " Lithuania " , Lewis Beach ' s " The Clod " , Noel Coward ' s " Fumed Oak " , J. M. Synge ' s " Ridersto the Sea " , and Mona Lewis " The Card Game. " Sharing the lead under Carol Cole- man ' s direction of " Lithuania " were Ernie Chavey, Mary Nelom, Sally Cone, John Mitchell, Jack Lorts, Bill Sims, and Jim Gardner. Jack Lorts and Sally Morton were fea- tured in " The Clod " directed by Mona Lewis. Mrs. Enderli, who directed " Fumed Oak " , had Jack Conklin, Bernadine Roy, Doretta Bacon, and Billie Bradbury head- ing the cast. " Riders in the Sea " featu red the acting talents ofJune Winstead, Stewart Rogers, Netilee Wheaton and Sheri Hughes with Martha Zabel directing. " The Boor " , directed by Mary Ullom, featured Carol Coleman, Stewart Rog- ers, and Sunny Smith. The " Card Game " was directed by its own author, Miss Mona Lewis, and fea- tured Sheri Hughes, Doretta Bacon, Joan Peterson and June Winstead. Later this year the drama department presented " Our Town " . The cast of 20 characters was headed by Stewart Rogers, who played the part of the philosophical druggist who acts as host, master of ceremonies, commenta- tor, philosopher, and friend to the spec- tators. Dr. ' Young predicts a well rounded theater program for 0. C. S. including Broadway productions, opera, musical comedy, classical drama, and experi- mental plays. 25 The college forensics activities provided, along with the basketball team, the only intercollegiate activities this year. The forensics group got off to a good start under the direction of Lee Granell, adviser. The first scheduled competition was with San Diego State College. Events were scheduled as far away as Oregon State College, Corvallis, Ore- gon. John McLaughlin at this time copped the first forensic trophy. Members of the team also were awarded five " superior " ratings and seven " excellent " certificates in competition throughout the Southland. The 1960-61 season established Orange County State College as one of the up and coming forensic teams on the West Coast. In debate competition, Titan teams competed in 60 debates, winning 31 and losting 29. The group has begun plans for next year, and with the experience gained this first year Coach Granell looks forward to bring- ing many more awards to the college. Following is a list of the major awa rd winners during the campaign: Pierre DeGrignon - 1st place, Oral tion, Southern California Championships. Ron Boring and David Sprague - 2nd place, Men ' s Novice Debate, Claremont Invita- tional Tournament. John McLaughlin - 3rd place, Upper Men ' s Oral Interpretation, Western States Sally Cone - 3rd place, Women ' s Oral Interp- retation, Southern California Champion- ships.

Lan- don. Two major performance groups presented two major programs for the College. On December 4, 1960 the OCSC Symphonic Choir of 60 voices presented the " Requiem Mass " by W. A. Mozart at the Fullerton First Methodist Church. On April 16, 1 961 the group presented J. S. Bach ' s 4 and 11 " at the Fullerton Junior College Student Center. David 0. Thorsen, associate professor of music and director of choral organizations wasthe r. On February 5, 1961, the OSCS College-Commun- ity Symphony (60 instrumentalists) conducted by Jay Dietzer, assistant professor of music, presented a of selections by Frescobaldi-Kindler, Bach, Abert, Schubert, Moussorgsky, Faure, and Strauss.

The school spirit displayed at the basketball games would not have been so enthusiastic without the cooperation and hard work contributed by the yell leaders and song lead- e rs. Art Johnson was the head yell leader assisted by Dean George and Sharon Jaster. The songleaders were PatKreske, Carol Coleman, Sheri Hughes, Belinda Becker, and Caryll Egerer. Another group heard at the games was the pep band. Members of the band were Ken Smith, Jim Engle, Doug Dyer, Joe Moody and Ken English. Caryll Egerer, not pictured with the other song leaders, was the Basketball Queen. She is shown with Coach Alex Omalev and Gary Dougan, a member of the basketball team 29 Athletics, like every other major phase of College activity, has been discussed at great length before the introduction of intercollegiate competition at Orange County State. As far back as the Fall of 1959, OCS administrators were investigating possibilities of adding athletics to the college picture. Basketball, the least expensive of the major sports, was the most natural choice for a starter. The search for a top flight coach began and ended at Fuller- ton Junior College where Alex Ornalev had a long record of successful seasons. Omalev, who had guided the JC Hornets to eight league championships in 11 seasons, was the logical choice to guide the fortunes of the Titans. Omalev was hired and intercollegiate athletics was introduced. Under Way While concluding his career at the JC with an Eastern Confer- ence championship and a perfect 14-0 conference record, Omalev pieced together a schedule for the 1960-61 Orange County State Titans. On October 15, using the facilities of the junior college, bask- etball practice was officially opened. Omalev greeted a small but anxious squad of eight and the task of molding a State College basketball unit was underway. By December 1 the molding job may not have been completed but the season was here and intercollegiate athletics was a reality. A successful season that netted 16 wins followed. The entire athletic program is still in the planning stages, but basketball, the first of what may someday be a complete well- rounded athletic program, was in full swing. 30 MEMBERS OF the first basketball squad, shown with Coach Alex Omalev, left, are Neale Stoner, Jon Brettman, Dick Roche, OCS 69 ..... ....... ........... ............ ..Westmont 66 Redlands 67 Pasadena 79 Sacramento State 73 Long Beach State 68 San Fernando Valley 67 Los Angeles State 80 Pasadena 56 Sacramento State 51 San Francisco State 67 Chico State 54 Cal Western 110 University of California, Riverside. 75 Chapman College 95 Cal Tech Garry Dougan, Jim Hatchett, Don Dannenbring, Don Christen- sen, and Terry Hermann.

Season.. Orange County State College ' s first ever basketball season was termed " hig h- I y successful " from all standpoints. The Titans compiled a winning record of 16 wins against 14 losses, a mark al- most unheard of for a first year team. The season was highlighted by the Titans ' outstanding performances against some of the Southland ' s most feared teams and third place titles won in two invitational tournaments. Coach Alex Omalev ' s team scored impressive wins over highly rated Long Beach State, Cal Poly (Pomona), Cal Poly (SLO), and Pasadena College. On the other side of the ledger, the Titans were beaten by teams of high Chapman College, Redlands Los Angeles State and Cal turned back the Titans. During the 1960-61 campaign the Titans entered the Redlands Invitational Tournament and the California Assn. of Health, Physical Education, and Recrea- tion Tournament at Cal Poly Pomona. The Titans opened the season at the Redlands event and scored their first ever win against Westmont College of Santa Barbara (69-67). On the following night the Titans bowed to the hosts be- fore coming back on the third night to cop third place in the tournament, edging Pasadena (67-63). The season-ending CAHPER Tourna- ment saw Orange State make shambles of numerous tournament records as they scored a 101-64 win over Laverne in the first round and a 109-88 win over Nev- ada Southern for third place. A 68-64 setback at the hands of Cal Western was sandwiched between the victories. Other highlights of the season in- cluded a winning trip to Arizona where the Titans topped Luke Air Force base (107-73) and Grand Canyon College (79-76). The club ' s Most Valuable Player award winner Jon Brettman scored 45 points against Luke in a record-shattering effort. During the first season the Titans av- eraged 78 points per game while oppon- ents netted 74. Several outstanding individual per- formances must be recorded...Brettman averaging 20 points per game through- out the season...Jim Hatchett scoring 32 points against Laverne...Terry Hermann winning the Cal Poly (SLO) game with a desperation shot with just two seconds to play...and Neale Stoner completing the season with a free throw percentage of more than 84 per cent 32 " Who ' s got the ball?

This committee, which also acted as an executive committee, ex- hibited much enthusiasm and hard work on behalf of the Junior Class. The constitution for the Junior Class was passed on February 24, 1961, and during the spring semester of 1961 the final steps were taken for chartering the Junior Class, which was one of the first organizations to be chartered on campus. A successful dance was staged during the fall semester by the Associated Stu- dent Body, with the assistance of theJun- ior class. The Junior Class planned and spon- sored a very successful day honoring Orange County State College. On May 12, 1961, the " Day of the Titan " was held on the college campus. The activities of the day were open to all students and their families. The many events included games and relays and these were held on the lawn area to the rear of the school. A pot-luck dinner was served in the patio, and to top the day off a dance was held in room 701. It is hoped that the " Day of the Titan " will become an annual event and will great prestige to Orange County State College and to the Junior Class. 34 Thelma R. Allen Lou E. Ayrs Doretta A.
