Jumping the gun, the PIONEER recalls a few of the milestones of higher edu¬ cation as they were " way back when. " ★ ★ ★ FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH — The annual spring rites — " to blow off steam " —dates back to Circus Day in the Thirties. May 9-13 western garb and gingham dresses with sunbonnets were the official attire. The Colt revolv¬ ers in the holsters are usually sealed. ★ ★ ★ STUDENTS IN UNIFORM — The most tightly regimented and dedicated young intellectuals on campus are the men and women of the nursing corps. Nuns and men are also included in this exclusive LRJC program on the College campus. ★ ★ ★ MISCELLANEOUS—Explorations into the minds of college students can be shocking as well as revealing. Biologist Ann Russell probes the malaise of the season, and Worrier John McCarthy tabulates his frustrations. In addition, The Inquiring Reporter collected some views among veterans on the subject of the draft. ★ ★ ★ APOLOGIES AND THANKS — With only ten busy students to record the events of the semester and various other limitations, the staff reminds readers to understand why the PIONEER does not resemble LIFE Magazine too closely. With new journalism students arriving in the fall and with renewed enthusi¬ asm from the old, we look for improve¬ ment next issue. Meanwhile, thanks to those who helped us in this effort.

A current controversy concerning the Tower and the Administration Building (of which it is a part) is whether the entire structure is going to crumble in an earthquake or whether it should be razed or merely reinforced to meet the specifications of the Field Act. LRJCboard members, other legal authorities, and the State Legislature are involved in the state-wide dilemma of what to do about school buildings constructed before 1933.

City College Serves Capital Community TIME WAS—In the times past, students produced original, full- length musicals, without the aid of trained faculty. ... in olden days SURPRISE—Before Sputnik and the new Lilliard Hall, the study of science was primitive at SCC. Founded 1916 Golden Jubilee Anniversary For Capital College A HAPPY MARRIAGE of fifty years duration between Sacramento’s community college and the Capital City. Founded in 1916 in a wing of Sacramento Senior High School at 18th and K Streets, the local two-year institution of higher learning, one of the oldest in the State and in the nation, moved to 34th and W Streets, location for six years of class instruction. In 1925, the cornerstone for the pres¬ ent campus on Freeport Blvd. was laid. And in 1961 the word " Junior” was dropped from its official name. As of July, 1965, Sacramento City College was incor¬ porated into the new legal entity of the Los Rios Junior College District, which embraces all or parts of three counties. No longer the " orphan” of a lar ge city school system, SCC now has the financial resources—as well as the human resources of excellent instructors—to meet the cur¬ rent and future challenges of great numbers of students, including returning military veterans and other adults bound for more higher education and vocational training. To help meet these needs, many physical changes are presently on the drawing boards calling for the razing of buildings and the construction of new structures on the 52 acre campus. Next fall the student body will number over 8000 in day and evening classes under the tutelage of about 250 instructors. Before inaugurating the next era of another fifty years of progress, SCC will pause to observe its Golden Jubilee with a civic program next fall. In the years ahead, City College will continue to serve the community and its thou¬ sands of students in many ways—culturally and vocational¬ ly—in the professions, in business, and in industry.

An expected enrollment of 6300 in the fall will add several hundred more students to the competition for chairs. Cafeteria-ology IA -Most Popular Course EVERY student’s favorite course is Cafeteria- ology IA! Happily, it’s more than an instructor¬ less area of learning; it’s an endless fashion show, a dating bureau, a food-line, a meeting place, a snack bar, a smoking lounge—even at times a study hall, despite unsubdued squeals and unin¬ hibited young laughter. The newly enlarged eating center opened some sixteen months ago, and immediately was over¬ crowded—taking on functions other than gastro¬ nomic. Today, the penal refectory atmosphere of long rows of tables is continuously jammed with students, encumbered with assorted paraphernalia like luggage-sized purses, over-sized parkas, and all-sized books, most of the junk piled high on the eating tables and soon besmirched with sugar leavings, ketchup red, and Coke stains. On the walls gaudy posters announcing everything lend an air of modern art to the surroundings. Where Friends Meet to Eat Surprisingly perhaps, segregation is a way of life here. Groups of varying racial descent congre¬ gate at tables together like birds huddled against the cold. And sorority and fraternity members gather at other tables for informal confabs with their sisters and brothers. Friends are especially easy to make during the campus political rallies which are not really serious events. Recently a student petition circulated on the campus pleading for a new Student Union Build¬ ing which would include a lounge and browsing rooms for recreational reading. More recently, the new district superintendent, Walter T. Coultas, recognized that urgent need, adding that meeting rooms for student-faculty ’’bull sessions” should be included. But such a building seems years away. Hangout for Learners In the meantime, the Cafeteria continues to be the popular hangout for the gangs of students, more than 5140, who have much relaxing and socializing and informal learning to do between classes. This uproarious class—before 8 a.m. in the morning to closing early in the afternoon—is a focal point of student gaiety and a temporary emotional release from personal and world prob¬ lems. Most important! Since instructors avoid en¬ trapment there, the collegians freely pass out judg¬ ments concerning anybody. All the students get A’s. 7 WATCHING — This group takes time out from intellec¬ tual discussion to watch the cameraman. SYMPATHY — A compas¬ sionate ear can always be found in the cafeteria—for student woes. SUNSHINE—Talk moves to the outside—the portico and benches—in fine weather. What? Me Worry? By John Me Carthy (Editor’s Note: The ruminations of a typical (?) college man were recorded secretly by tapping his mind with a new " bugging” device. The evidence is that he has a variety of worries, many of which might be common to the young males cur¬ rently on campus.) CONSOLATIONS—Two beautiful girls are not having the desired effect on the author of the following essay. Janet Upstill and Ann Raikoglo are trying to be sympathetic. Uncle Sam Wants You! " YOU’RE in the army now, you’re not behind the plow . . Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? This is the theme song of a new grade issued to students here at City College for below average marks—a grade in the military. Have you wondered what it is like in Viet Nam? Let your grades drop and you’ll find out soon enough. It’s not that Uncle Sam wants just the stupid ones. Heavens, no! He just figures that if you don’t dig books, maybe you can dig foxholes. At the present time, fifteen and one-half units of courses is the minimum required by the Selective Service Board in order to stay in school. Some people just can’t hack fifteen units. They overload themselves and soon find that they are on academic probation—which automatic¬ ally drops them to twelve and one-half units—which in turn leads to digging foxholes. The Predatory Animal But the draft isn’t the only problem bugging the men here at City College. Men of Sacramento City College , be¬ ware! It is a fact that lurking around the campus are several members of a species of female called SNEAKUS BROADIS. These shameless girls believe in the old say¬ ing, " A man chases a woman until she catches him.” These unscrupulous females come to college for the sole purpose of securing husbands—for themselves, that is. This vicious carnivore is a highly dangerous animal. During the day it seems to behave like any other normal female, but at night . . censored . . . Never be caught alone with one of this species. The Enigma of Women Then again, maybe this isn’t your problem. Maybe your problem is with the girl friend you have already. Is she playing it coy? Is she really putting you down? Do you get that anxious feeling that is often the first symptom of becoming henpecked? Cheer up, Spunky! I’ve got the an¬ swer for you, too. Drop her. Then you ask, " What if I don’t got a girl friend?” Have you ever thought of going to Vic Tanny’s? Maybe you should read some good books, check up on the weath¬ er reports. This way, you’ll never be at a loss for words. The Answer To Poverty So what, you don’t like girls. You got money problems? That’s the second largest problem facing college students today. They just don’t have enough bread to afford a date now and then. Students in college need more money nowadays. Not everyone is as lucky as some people. When students need money, they hit the old man for it. Some of you poor unfortunate people have to work. Ech! Now I will tell you the simple way to get a job. You go to an employment office. After you have waited two months and have not gotten a job, try going around to different places that are seeking employees. If this does not work, sign up for relief from President Johnson’s War-On-Poverty program, because by this time you’ll probably need it. This Matter of Support After you discover that you can’t get relief and you tell your parents they’re going to have to support you for the next four years, what happens? Your mother might faint. Your little brother, who has already moved all of your stuff out of the bedroom you have shared with him for 18 years, might cry a lot. But now your father, that is a different matter alto¬ gether. He starts out in a subtle tone of voice to explain to you how big a bum you are. He calls you all sorts of names like " lazy-good-for-nothing” and " failure.” You know the whole bit; you’ve been through it before. As his face reddens, his volume goes up and reaches a climactic point in his oratory. After that, it is all down hill. He finally realizes that you haven’t been listening to a thing he’s said. He then starts to whimper such cute phrases as " The peace corps is a wonderful organization for a college student to af¬ filiate with” or " Why not join the NAVY and see the world?” Through a port hole? Not on your life. When he gets to this point, you can rest assured that he will let you stay for at least another nine months. Vacation-Time Blues Ah! But what happens when summer comes around. What will you do then? The old man might get sick of seeing you loaf around the house. Your paw might make like a papa bird in spring and kick you out of the nest. This might put you out on a limb. Why not try flying south for the Summer, like Argen¬ tina or Antarctica. You might impress your parents by moving out and not leeching off of them all summer. Then again they might pray for a snow storm in August. Inquiring Reporter. 9 Should the college student who maintains a passing grade in his courses be exempted from the military obligation to serve in the armed forces of his country? (Editor’s note: In answer to the question, the young man in military uni¬ f orm who is not inclined academically or does not have sufficient funds to attend college probably says " No.” The young man interested in getting a higher education—learning a trade or entering a profession, probably answers " Yes.” Other considerations are pertinent: for instance, waging war is sophisticated today. Don’t the military services want trained minds? Doesn’t the long-range welfare of society demand more educated minds? The emphasis is on liberal education. So, how " selective” should the Selec¬ tive Service Boards be?) The Inquiring Reporter for the " Pioneer” asked the question of a few ex-service¬ men, since they might be inclined to have an objective point of view. In one case he got the feminine view. " Millions of local, state, and federal government dollars are annually sup¬ plied to colleges and college students. Without this aid, the cost of a college education—to all but a select few— w ould be prohibitive. An obligation to serve the nation in one of the military services is implied. And college stu¬ dents should not have this duty de¬ ferred until graduation. ’ —Bob Cound (U.S.M.C.) " Being drafted out of school ... in¬ terrupts a young man’s education and takes him away from family and friends. But the opportunity ... to at¬ tend school in a free country did not come about by accident. It was won with blood, sweat, and tears by Ameri¬ can servicemen who left their families and schools to insure that these good things of life would remain for us.” —Robin Alexander (U.S. Navy) " College students should be exempt from their military obligation until they complete their education. If col¬ lege is postponed until after the stu¬ dents’ tour of duty, they often go to work and not to college. Our country needs educated people in service and out; therefore, both students and coun¬ try profit by a completed education.” —Carolyn N. Flaherty (U.S.M.C.) " The U.S. is reported to be a land of equal opportunity. It would seem to be a form of discrimination to prefer a young tradesman, craftsman, or even a laborer for the draft rather than a col¬ lege student. Equal opportunity implies equal obligation—so no one ethically should be exempt from the draft on the grounds of personal convenience.” —Ovid L. (Bud) Holmes, Jr. (U.S.M.C.) " No! By the time they graduate, most of them have jobs lined up and do not want to go into the service. They should be obligated to serve, even if it is in the reserves. It might give them an understanding of what is going on and what we are fighting for.” —Bob Gutierrez (U.S. Army) " I agree with this statement. I have of¬ ten heard the argument that the campus is a refuge for draft-dodgers. The only answer to this is that no one can main¬ tain a satisfactory academic average and not learn a great deal. In this way, they can help their country more in school than in the service.” —Norman Miller (U.S. Navy) 10 Coordinating Group Inter-Club Council Promotes Activities EXTRACURRICULAR activities are a valuable means toward the end of a liberal education, as important as academic study. Membership in cam¬ pus clubs provides valuable practical experience in countless aspects of learning such as training in leadership and cooperation, skills which could never be developed only through classroom study. A club for almost every interest is available on the City College campus. Special-interest groups constitute the majority of the organizations; how¬ ever, political, religious, and social clubs are also well-represented. Clubs participate in many all-campus activities each semester, including competitions for points held for Homecoming in the fall and Pioneer Day in the spring. They also host speakers, sponsor the majority of the after-game dances, and undertake various service projects, such as raising money for charities and campaigning to preserve campus grass. At the semi-annual Student Government Ban¬ quet in June, trophy awards were presented to the winners of the competition for Best Large Club and Best Small Club on campus.

I m Verna Hits Campus A Seasonal Malady ANNUALLY — about the third month of the year — an epidemic of an extremely common disease, Cypridelirium verna, strikes the City College campus. Rarely fatal, this malady causes such ad¬ verse effects upon the hapless sufferer that he may well wish he were dead. The first sign is a tingling sensation, generally accompanied by breathlessness or a suffocating feeling. The face may become faintly flushed, and the eyes may bulge slightly, always in the presence of a certain member of the opposite sex. In the secondary stages, the severity of the attacks increases. Marked trembling is in evidence, along with aphasia and ataxia. If the victim is at all capable of speech, he invariably incurs a complication known as Stomatopoda. He may also completely lose his appetite. During the final stages of Cypridelirium verna, the sufferer becomes manic-depressive in nature. He begins to cut classes in order to see the cause of his malady. A kind word from the patho¬ gen sends him into fits of ecstasy; if he receives a brush-off, the accompanying period of acute mental depression may last for days. Now, if he has in turn infected the pathogen, the afflicted person enjoys the desirable after-effects of the disease until they completely wear off . . . which could take any amount of time. The outward sign of such an outcome is heterosexual pairing . . . and occasional disappearance of the pair. If for some reason no reciprocal reaction takes place, the victim is doomed to suffer until he is infected by a new “germ.” An overwhelming majority of the stricken recover, and the cure is the most pleasant part. Spring brings an epidemic of this disease to City College, turning the campus into a health resort, as one may easily see by simply gazing around the library, the cafeteria, or the quad. No one is completely immune, and no ef¬ fective vaccine has been developed. If you catch Cypridelirium verna, good luck and have fun! — Ann Russell. mmmmmmmmmmi ABOUT THE AUTHOR Ann Russell, a second semester coed, is an “A” student in biol¬ ogy and a “B” student in Eng¬ lish—which qualifies her to write on the subject of this article. In addition, she is a keen observer of young human nature on the campus. She is sympathetic to the Republican Party. mmmmmmmimm 0 Clubs and Organizations Vocational 4-Wheel Drive Auto Club Amtecs Campus Lovelies Southpaw crams . . . Carol accepts?

Would you believe? Cosmetology " Frailty, thy name is woman, " said the Bard. The wisdom of the mentor is prov¬ ing to be profitable for the students, most¬ ly coeds, who are majoring in the voca¬ tional program in Cosmetology. Good positions are being filled by graduates of the SCC two-year program. And they are helping to make the world more attractive by enhancing feminine pul¬ chritude. (Photo above by Q. Fox) THE CREATIVE WORLD—The A Cappella Choir has enthralled audiences in the community again this year with classical and contemporary music. Sculpture in vari¬ ous media continues an ancient art, nor is the Renaissance art of fine draftsmanship overlooked. In the world of drama, the play " Becket” was a campus production. Pioneer Day Spring Rites Noisy Fun NOT TO BE SOON FORGOTTEN! That’s the verdict of Pioneer Day 1966. The annual spring festival was highly successful in its avowed pur¬ pose — to clear the emotionally charged air before the Final Examinations, which followed months of hard study. Something for every taste was included in the variety of activities of the day of uninhibited fun. A few of the highlights included the Frog-Jump¬ ing Contest, the Quick Draw, The Sack Race. And campus clubs offered games of chance and skill in booths set up in front of the Auditorium. Those up early on the big day enjoyed the Pancake Feed put on by members of the faculty. An all-campus dance lasting till 1 a.m. ended it all. The romance of the Wild West was reflected in the students’ colorful Western garb of gingham dresses, sunbonnets, chaps and ten gallon hats, Colt revolvers and even some Union cavalry uni¬ forms. All in all, there was plenty of action and not all of it was scheduled. Studies Neglected Amid HUg Education After Hours APPROXIMATELY one-quarter of the students at City College literally never see the light of day—on campus, that is. The extended-day students attend classes usually between 6:30 and 9:15 p.m., although some vocational labs be¬ gin as early as 4:30 and end as late as 10:00 p.m. One hundred thirty-three credit classes and sixteen non-credit classes are offered, representing thirty-three de¬ partments. The 98 instructors come not only from the City College day faculty, but also from Sacramento area high schools and local business and profes¬ sional schools. Enrollment for the spring semester is 2576, a 10% increase over last semes¬ ter. This includes students enrolled in extended-day only and those concur¬ rently enrolled in day classes. The drop-out rate is a reduced 26%. The extended-day program is a great convenience for those who wish to pur¬ sue a formal education but must at the same time hold a full-time job.

An Urgent Need Call For Nurses— Vietnam, Medicare COLOR does make a difference. The girls in the uniforms are members of two special training nursing programs of which City College is especially proud. In the blue uni¬ forms are the Registered Nursing students; in the pink and white are the students of Vocational Nursing. The students in the Registered Nursing program pur¬ sue a combination of general education courses with re¬ lated clinical experiences in Mercy, Sutter General, and Sacramento County Hospitals. Upon successful completion of the required academic program of two years and two six-week summer sessions, the collegians are granted an Associate in Arts degree and are eligible to take the Cali¬ fornia State Licensing exam. The students in the Licensed Vocational Nurse program are offered a three-semester course of classroom and clinical experiences in the cooperating hospitals. On completion of this program, they may take the State Board examination for Licensed Vocational Nurses. Each year both men and women nurses are graduated into the working areas of many hospitals, industries, and the armed forces for duty both at home and overseas. The need for a continuing flow of nurses in the community is a critical one in part also because Medicare becomes a reality July 1. In brief, the value of nurses in society is ge nerally recognized as vitally important today. DRUGS—Students are instructed in the administration of many types of medicines. CHILDREN—Pediatrics proves to be a favorite section w ith many students. ft. , % Surgical Nursing SCALPEL — Operating room nursing requires specific skills. EMPHASIS — The main objec¬ tive in both nursing programs is patient-centered care. OFF THE BOARDS! Craig Ortega gets possession. He won the Most Valuable Player Award.

The Beavers won 84-74; SCC took the other, 67-60. With their " show” finish this season, the City College basketball team im¬ proved on last year ' s 4th place windup.

In the final games of the season, Del Bandy’s boys took a twinbill from their archrivals, the ARJC Beavers, on the local diamond by scores of 9-2 and 5-3. Net since 1961 have the locals took the conference laurels. SCC had 15 wins and 5 defeats for a percentage of .750, good enough to win in the major leagues. They led the pack by one game. As a result of their surprising clutch performance - and the fact that Fresno Citytook a pair from COS on the same day - the Panthers partici¬ pated in the State Junior College elimination tourney.

BOXING SHOW—The posters said, ’Ten teeth-jarring” bouts for the April card. Grapplers Show After 2nd Campaign SOME SAY wrestling is the most demanding sport of all. A good wrestler needs the strength of a football player, the agility and alertness of a basketball player, and the stamina and speed of a trackster. In only its second year in intercollegiate wrestling, the SCC team had a fair record with 9 wins, 13 losses and 1 tie. Two outstanding grapplers were Steve Niles (130 lb.) and George Bigelow (137 lb.) earning berths in the California JC Wrestling Meet. Niles had a fine record of 44 matches without being pinned, winning the outstanding frosh award. Among his greater achievements were tying the Japanese Na¬ tional Champion, winning a Valley Conference Cham¬ pionship, and taking first place at the Cal Poly tourna¬ ment. Bigelow also won a Valley Conference champion¬ ship for the Panther squad. The other members of the team are as follows: Lightweight, Floyd Vann, Oscar Peichert; 123, Dick Niles, Mike Parks; 130, Steve Niles; 137, Jay Yaudegis, George Bigelow; 145, Jerry Sasaki, Rudy Rodriguez; 152, Larry Sasaki ; 160, Rich Morrison , John Morelli, Lee Fackrell; 167, Frank Rodgers ; 177, Bob Davidson; 191, Fred Danbecker, Byron Bear ; and heavyweight, John McCarthy, Larry Brown. denotes wrestlers who wrestled fall semester only.

SCOTCH the guilt complex! If you aren’t studying as much as you feel you should, maybe you’re learning more. A paradox? Educa¬ tors who view the ' ' whole picture” maintain that extracurricular activities are an essential ingredient in the development of the lib¬ erally educated man. Of course, you could be too active on campus. Leadership and cooperation are developed in part by means of active participation in student organizations and campus affairs. Activity both in service projects and in purely social affairs can be profitable. Although, sad to relate, it is not recorded on the official College transcripts. Of course, with Final Exams in the offing, your extracurricular life should be postponed till the summer—only a week away. Then you can really get to the business of learning in the full gamut of extracurricular activities—at Lake Tahoe or elsewhere in the world. DOING—Reading is only part of learning. 63 9 Only The Beginning AS THE STRAINS of " Pomp and Circumstance” fill the Auditorium each June, several hundred City College stu¬ dents receive their Associate in Arts degrees and assume the title " alumni.” For some this ceremony marks the close of their education; for others, graduation is merely a way station in their pursuit of knowledge as they go on to other institutions of higher learning. For all graduates, the commencement exercises mean the beginning of a new life, in a new field of endeavor. Thus, commencement is not an end, rather it is a beginning. 5 I w a
