THE PLACER PHOENIX
The decision to dedicate this 1950 edition of the Placer College PHOENIX to Coach Harry
Aronson and his victorious basketball squad was made on Monday following the successive vic-
tories over Stockton, Long Beach, Grant, Visalia and Menlo in the state junior college champion-
ships at Modesto on the final four days of the preceding week.
For Placer College, this championship victory was the event of the half century. Placer
College was the toast of the athletic world. No faculty member or student will ever forget the
joyful enthusiasm of that great Monday morning rally when the team was acclaimed for its success.
It unified the community behind the college with an enthusiasm that should be of lasting benefit
Even the Governor of California, Earl Warren, took cognizance of our victory by attending
the Lions' Club banquet in honor of the team at the conclusionfof the season.
The PHOENIX staff wishes you to live forever in the history of this school. We humbly
dedicate this book to you. .

Another year has almost passed by in the history of Placer College. For those of us who
were fortimate enough to be on hand, it ,will be a year of pleasant memories. There should be no
doubt in the mind of anyone that "school days" are the happiest in an individual's life.
The value of a thorough education is ever-increasing. We came to Placer seeking further
knowledge to prepare ourselves for future days when we will take our place as citizens of various
communities. Without some sort of an education, the average person feels lost during many phases
of life. Going to college is a voluntary process. We came to this institution because we had a
desire within ourselves to grasp new ideas. '
Upon graduation from here, many of us will transfer to higher institutions of learning,
while others will seek immediate employment. No matter what decision we happen to make, we
should always keep in mind the fact that the knowledge attained at this school gave us a start
on our long journey of life.
We have set a foundation for the coming years of success at Placer College. Our athletic
teams have become stronger, the activities more numerous, and the enrollment greater. In a
very few years a larger number of students will be attending this institution. When this time
comes, we can look back on our days here and compare the two by turning to this edition of the
PHOENIX. May the past pictures of Placer and the friendships with our fellow students and
instructors remain with us throughout our lifetime. '
