UHS. The new buildings had all been com-
pleted, but some of the 'fixtures' still are to be
added, and an auditorium is needed. At our
first football game of the season we held an
open house to show off our completed build-
ings. The new gymnasium was named the
D. R. Lightner Gym, in honor of our principal
who had done so much to help realize our new
school plant. So here we are, in new build-
ings, and rarin' to go. To see where we Went,

This Pleiades was designed to serve a dual purpose.
First of all it was planned to contain as complete
a picture of school life as possible, for pleasant
reminiscing. Secondly, it was planned to present
as many facts as possible about the phases of school
so that you can look back in years to come and tell
your own children what it was like to go to school
back in the "dark ages." The staff hopes you get a
lot of pleasure from these pages, and wishes you

This year we are honoring Mr. Iohn W. Staton.
who for years has capably fulfilled his many tasks
at SUI-IS. As adviser to the Student Council he
has guided the organization in expanding and bet-
tering its activities. He has developed the chorus
into an A-1 singing group which is in top demand
throughout the Strathmore-Lindsay area. Con-
gratulations, Mr. Staton. May SUHS continue to
have your capable, efficient service.
PRESENTI NG OUR PRINCIPAL
Big business may be run more efficiently and produce better products than small industries, but
that does not follow with schools, where the development of boys and girls is the main objective.
Often we hear the remark, "I went to a small school and I think I had more fun and learned more
than if I had gone to a large school."
The chances of being able to participate in activities in a small school are far greater than in a
large school. A school with 150 boys and 60 out for football gives 40 per cent of the boys a
chance to play, whereas a school with 1,000 boys, and if 100 are out for the sport. permits only
10 per cent of the boys to participate. The same is true in all other sports for girls as well as
boys. It is also true in the offices held in the student body, the classes and organizations, as
well as in plays, programs, and other activities. Thus many more opportunities are given for
student participation and for training of leaders in the small school than in the large school.
In a small school all students know all the teachers and most students know most of the other
students. Because of this intimacy and the greater opportunity to participate in the affairs of the
school, there is more school spirit
Mr- D. R. Ligthtner
Since the classes are small and there are fewer teachers, the teachers can have a more personal
touch and intimate acquaintance with the students thereby giving more individual attention to
the various needs of the students, as well as counseling and guiding them.
A small school usually means a small community. It follows then that a greater percentage of
the people of the community take more interest in the school and consequently give more loyal
support to the school.
Finally, since a small school offers opportunities for more knowledge and appreciation of the
real personal values of both teachers and pupils, there are greater opportunities for more true
friendships that will last for life.
From the above you might deduct that we think a boy or girl is fortunate to attend Strathmore
lust as any well run organization needs sponsorship, so does an efficient high school need
an interested and hard working board of trustees. Our school has been fortunate in having
just such a board of public-spirited, experienced men. It is largely because of their time
and effort that we now have such a practical, efficient new school plant. They, together
with Mr. Lightner, fostered the plan and saw it through. We all owe a vote of thanks
to the men of our Board of Trustees.

school ahead of them. Next year they'll be Juniorsg so look for them! They'l1 be a swell Junior class!

Carol Fillmore's dream has come true. She has a full time job in the

farther on they see Ann Smith as the "fat lady" and 8' 4" David

glide over Tiajuana noticing Eddie Zinn peddling sombreros and Gwen
Wilkinson and Margaret Jones running a tamale stand. When flash!
Down' the street comes Ronnie Humphrey running the 22 mile jet
relay. He's in the lead.
Now, across the Gulf to Miami, Florida-there we see Glenda
March lazing in the warm sun being watched by her faithful husband.
My, what a small world. It seems Eddie and Phyllis Reid have
settled right next door to Glenda and Joe. They are in the business of
putting out jet-propelled automobiles with Bob Bradley and Sons, Inc.
Taking a glance up farther, they notice that Mickey Miller and
Elwin Morey have just entered into business in a pawn shop on the
corner of Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania. And in the shop they see Jay
Collier hocking his watch in order to get enough to buy Betty Thomp-
son an engagement ring.

them in the 3-piece band are Antonia Reyes on the drums, Maxine

Ka-1-piiiv, uplxyith the modern trend, the Pleiades staff
worked to produce Ll more compact. purposeful yearbook.
They put nioro school life and information in the saint- old
space, l'l'K'llll!'Cl to life some good ideas which had died
before their time isuc-li as Senior epitomesi, and incorpor-
ated sonic new ideas lsuch as picture division paggesi B-1
provided the staff the full sized room needed for work and
the :xceoiiipaiiyiiiig clutter. Mickey, Carol B.. and Ellen
worked, under Mrs, Gays excellent supervision, every fifth
period and sonietimes after school, too. Editor Mickey had
many of the pages planned when school started. leaving
the stall' more time to devote to other duties. Carol B. and
Ellen. having learned all the fine points of annual work,
are "rariii"' to go 115 Co-Editors next year. Carol F. and
Dell Juan were constantly on the go the last part of the
veai- solim-itinu the ads which make this large yearbook
possible, Although the going was rough, tough, and not
always pleasant, they got gi lot of ads.
Glenda Worked wonders in discovering dates and bits ol
information the staff thought gone forever. Jerry worked
hard to see that the sports write-ups included every im-
portant detail. The way Shirley made those keys go whei.
the copy was being typed was spectacular, Th 1 profession-
al photography for the book was done by Rennick Studio.
and the printing' was done by the Lindsay Publishing Com-
pany, Mr, Smith and Mr. Staton acted as on-the-spot
photoflraphers. getting pictures as the occasion arose. Many
others helped in producing this book. Sharon Speck help-
ed with art work, and those writing articles have been giv-
en by-line credit. The staff sponsored 11 sales drive from
mid-December to mid-February, with seniors. juniors, and
sophomores getting l00','I- sales, and the freshmen clear-
ing over 750. This was climaxed by an "Annual Day" pro-
gram, including the crowning of "Annual Queen" Linda
Parman. Yes. making this yearbook involved much more
time, work, and expense than you niigrht Quees.

Things got around pretty fast by word of mouth but S.U.
HS. students found out about all they wanted to know
from the Spartan News. This little paper reached its many
student subscribers every other Friday. As each one read
his issue, his face registered humor, surprise, and recogni-
tion. Behind all the causes of various expressions were the
able staff of the Spartan News. Two Mondays before the
paper came out, the Editor, Patty Huxtable, assigned the
articles. A few days later the articles began coming in.
Jerry Nanamura handed in his exciting Sports column:
Gossip written by Ann Smith came in: Fashions jotted
down by Sherryl Anderson were placed in the Editor's
handsg and lastly a couple of feature stories by Mickey
Miller helped complete the paper. Mr. Smith, the patient
and excellent advisor for the paper, then corrected each
article and turned them all over to Patty: the Assistant
Editor, Imogene Norris. and the typist, Mary Jean Haber-
inan, who typed all the articles in columns of twenty-two
Stencils of the pages had to be typed, which usually meant
staying after school the day before the paper came out.
Friday finally came, and fifth period found the paper be-
ing mimeographed and the pages being stapled together.
The staff has been very lucky to have their own work-
room this Year. Always before they have had to carry on
their work in Mr. Smith's commercial room. All the equip-
ment used in editing 3, paper are kept in this room, in-
cluding mimeoscope, mimeograph, typewriter, and 9, filing
cabinet. Near the end of the year, in accordance with the
custom, a very good Junior Edition came out under the
direction of next year's Editor, Barbara Nelson. It was
edited entirely by Juniors. To wind up the year, the last
issue was a Senior edition, put out entirely by Seniors. It
contained the class will and Prophecy and other articles
of interest to Seniors. -by Patty Huxtable

Maintaing its position as hub and cen-
ter of school activities, the Student
Council had another active, diversified
year. The Council met every other Tues-
day during fourth period. with each mem-
ber giving a sho1't account of his official
activities during' the previous week. Then
any member could advance a topic for
action or discussion efficiently led by
President James. They sold popcorn at
the football games. The inadequate cap-
acity of the little machine led the Coun-
cil to make the big business move of
purchasing a big, automatic machine in time for the bas-
ketball games. The new machine was operated atnoon every
day, profiting about enough to cover the periodical pay-
ments and leaving the profit from sales at the basketball
games for the Student Council fund. When the machine is
paid off next year. it will become fl profit-making service.
A big "Thank You" goes to the students who sold popcorn
for the Council during noontime. The Student Council
sporsored a "sock hop" in the new gym after the Orosi
football game. Added attractions were entertainment, ping
pong, and refreshments. They also sponsored two other
dances during the year, one in the cym. and a Valentine
dance in the cafeteria. In the fourth quarter they drew up
some regulations and rules for future dances, among them
that all dances would be held in the Women's Clubhouse
and would not exceed three and one-half hours.

T110 biggest event for the Student Coun-
cil was the Basketball Banquet Lp. 503
held in the Eelementary School audi-
plate affair, and the basketball players
were guests of the council. About 90 stu-
dents, parents, and townspeople came to
honor our Spartan basketball players, to
see Patty Huxtable crowned "Basketball
tain. and to hear Flint Hanner talk. In
T X addition to selling tickets and making
general arrangements, some of the Stu-
dent Conncil members also served. The Council lost mon-
ey on the banquet but, thanks to some of their money-
making projects, had enough to keep from going into debt.
During the last quarter, the Student Council organized and
presented an exchange assembly to exhibit some Spartan
talent to nearby schools. These schools. in turn, presented
an assembly to us. Student Body Elections were held earlier
1April 18h for the first time. in accordance with last year's
constiutional amendments. The student body dues of S2
entitled one to vote. to free admission to home games and
1'5c admission to other games. To aid the Chamber of Com-

The Merit Board is the organization
which deals with student conduct.
Six members compose the board, a rep-
resentative from each class, the student
body president, vice president, and the
adviser. The board officers and members
are as follows: James Seay, Presidentg
Johnny Sola, Vice-presidentg Patty Hux-
table, senior representativeg Delphia
Pierce, junior representative and secre-
tary second semester, Mary Blackwood,
sophomore representative and secretary
first semesterg Vernon Welter. freshman
representativeg Mr. Staton, adviser. The merit system is
3 method of both rewarding students of extra service and
punishing them for misconduct. The merit board has sole
jurisdiction in all but the most serious misconduct cases.
Each student is given 100 merits at the start of each semes-
ter. Merits are given him for extra service, and deinerits
are taken for misconduct. To assure a just decision in all
similar cases, a constitution is kept, listing the number
of merits and demerits automatically given or taken by the
board in more frequent cases. In less frequent cases, when
the number of merits given is not established. the board
votes these, referring to the recommendation slips turned
in by teachers: and in misconduct cases. the offender is
required to appear before the board. After presenting his
case, he is dismissed, and the board makes a decision. con-
sulting ihe constitution. The offender may receive up to
Merit Board, Student Council
Pleiades S C.
Merits are awarded for many things, in-
cluding no tardiness, during the semes-
absence during the semester, for
or above in citizenship, for an
'B" in a subject, for having more
than 115 merits, for participating in
plays, programs, and assemblies, and for
working on special extra-cirricular proj-
ects. In most cases, demerits are taken
for unexcused absences, failure to bring
an absence excuse, tardiness, and bring-
ing report card back late. Cases of a more serious nature
are in the minority. If a person's merits drop to 85, he is
warned by the Merit Board secretary. If his merits get as
low as '75, he receives fi merit slip, and the principal is
notified. The person is then given an appointment with the
principal to discuss his merit rating. The following students
ranked as top 10 in merits for the first semester. Delphia
Pierce, 159 merits: Georgia Rogers, 1583 Mary Haberman,
1563 Mickey Miller, 1503 Mary Blackwood, 1473 Carol Be-
quette, 1453 Patty Huxtable, 1443 Shirley Williams, Ellen
Woody, and Bonnie Blackwood, 143 merits. The lowest
merit rating was 50, and the highest. 159. The average of
all merits was 106. The secretary has a big job keeping
the merits recorded in her book. The book has a separate
page for each student. All demerits and merits for a stu-
dent are recorded on his page. At the end of the semester,
the page is totaled, and the number of merits entered on
his report card. The board works hard to do its best for
everyone. -by Delphia Pierce

The California Scholarship Federation took on some rather
ambitious activities during the year. The group chose as
its officers: President, Mickey Millerg Vice-president, Patty
Conley: Secretary, Delphia Pierceg and Treasurer, Ellen
Woody. In October, Strathmore and Lindsay were co-hosts
to the semi-annual district 10 Conference, held in Lindsay.
Various members planned the event and took part in the
program. All members except one attended this conference
and the Taft spring conference. During the winter the
group revised its constitution to make it more practical
for present conditions. C.S.F. members are entitled to one
"ditch day" per semester, a fact of which they always take
full advantage. They also receive Hprivilege cards" which
entitle them to leave study hall whenever they wish. In
order to become a C.S.F. member, one must have ten grade
points or eight g r a d e and two extra-curricular
points. Points are given on the basis of three points for
an "A" and one point for a "B" in academic subjects, and
one-half point for an "A" and one-half point for gt "B"
in non-academic subjects. Points are also given for var-
ious extra-curricular activities. Besides the officers mem-
bers Were, first semester: Clyde Gartung, Tronye Alex-
ander, and Shirley Williams: second semester: Carol Fill-
more, Georgia Rogers, Barbara Farless, Tronye Alexander,
Barbara Branch, Donna Gill, and Patsy Keith. Life mem-
bership and the C.S.F. gold seal are awarded to those
who earn C.S.F. 6 of their 8 semesters or 4 of their last 6
semesters in high school. Chapter 113C had one seal bearer
this year. Mickey Miller received his life membership pin
at graduation. He was a member of C.S.F. each of his
semesters in high school. Patty Conley, Delphia Fierce and
Ellen Woody have served sufficient membership so far and
are looking forward to earning life memberships next year.

The Spartan Knights is an athletic organization for boys
who, earning nine points in sports participation, are eli-
gible for membership. Points may be obtained by earning
letters in various sports. A heavyweight letter counts three
points, a lightweight, two, and 3 C class letter, one. Mr.
Conley originated the "Knights" in 1928. The first presi-
dent was Mr. Pat Bequette and since then 204 members
have been initiated. Once a boy has met the entrance
requirements of the organization, a rigid initiation is
held. The purpose of this initiation is to prove that one
can be a gentleman at all times. Included in the initia-
tion duties are the following:
ill Shine shoes of all Knights, present and past.
123 Shine the shoes of honorary members.
133 Kneel before Knights and address them by say-
ing, "Good morning, Sir ..................... "
C43 Do not speak to girls on Friday.
453 Wear white shirt and black bow tie on Friday
C63 Polish shoes of those with shoe shine cards.
171 Learn Spartan Creed.
The duration of initiation is from seven to nine weeks.
The length depends upon the conduct of the pledges.
"Good Pledges" ti.e. those who carry out the wishes of
old membersl may be admitted to the club following
seven weeks of initiation whereas less-cooperative pledges
find their period of initiation lengthened. Each fall the
boys sponsor concession stands at football games in con-
junction with the Service Club girls. At the end of the
school term the outstanding Spartan Knight receives
an award. -by Waymon Roberson

At the beginning of the year, the club learned of the program for exchang-
ing scrapbooks with Argentine students through the Red Cross. The club
went for the project with so much enthusiasm that it overshadowed the
other activities throughout the year.
The plan is that the students in the American school prepare a scrapbook
in English, depicting our way of life. and send it to a School in Argentine.
The Argentine students then reciprocate with a scrapbook, in Spanish.
depicting their Way of life. It is a wonderful way for the students in both countries
to receive training in the practical usage of each other's language. with everyday
sayings and colloquial expressions. In addition. the students get a valuable insight
into life in another "American" country. The program fits right in with the
Spanish Club's purpose of furthering better understanding of the customs and life
in Latin America.
A committee of Barbara Nelson, Delphia Pierce, and Ruth Gauge, under the
chairmanship of Georgia Rogers, had charge of preparing the book. Instead of
one book, however, the club members were so ambitious that they decided to pre-
pare two books, one covering
school life and activities. and the
other covering civic life and ac-

Membership to Service Club is limited to Junior and Senior girls who
have earned four points on the basis of citizenship, scholarship, merits
and athletic ability. The name "Service Club" is an appropriate one for
the aim of the members is to render service to the school and the com-
munity. This Year 22 girls in all, 14 the first semester and 8 the second,
received n sufficient number of points to become members. N

urer. Mrs. Gay is adviser.
The Service Club girls this year were very active in all school activities. During
football season they took over part of the concessions. By this means, they earned
enough money to finance a formal Christmas Party for the school. This party was
the highlight of the year for all who attended. Special features of this party were
the marvelous decorations, the delicious refreshments prepared by the girls, the
grand march and the class entertainment. The teachers and their children were
honored guests, and the faculty
participated in a very amusing
pie-smearing contest. Favors were
given at the door to each student.
During the program, the Service
Club girls performed an inspiring
ceremony. Then Santa Claus ap-
peared with a gift for everyone,
and after refreshments were serv-
ed they all left, feeling the party
was a great success.
At the beginning of the second
semester the old members held a
get-together in the Homemaking
room to welcome properly the
new members into the fold. Cokes
and cookies were served.
A special project of the girls this
year was to order the regular
Service Club pins.
In the spring, at the close of
school the Service Club again en-
tertained in honor of the whole
potluck picnic and swimming
party at the Lindsay park and

The Future Farmers of America is the national organiza-
tion of boys studying vocational agriculture. It was found-
ed in November, 1928. The motto is: Learning to Dog
Doing to Learng Earning to Liveg Living to Serve. There
are, perhaps, no more appropriate colors for such an "Up
and Coming" organization than those that have been
chosen - "National Blue and Corn Gold."
The year started off with a bang when the Green-Hands
were initiated. For the first half of the initiation, which
was all day at school, the initiates wore cut-off levis, no
shirts, gm, pair of womens hose, two different types of shoes.
They were smeared with lipstick, rouee, and burnt cork.
At the Tulare County Fair in September, the boys took
fourth place in the F. F. A. booth contest. They also
helped in the Chamber of Commerce booth. Sola showed
two Hereford steers, one, first place: one, second place,
and Seven fat hogs, four in first place, three in second
place. Nein showed one Hereford steer, which placed
second. Cadell and Sola were the delegates to the F. F. A.
State Convention on the campus of the California State
Polytechnic College, San Luis Obispo.

were purchased in March of this year. The plans are now
completed for the placing of gt sheep unit, a swine unit,
and a project 1'0w beside the beef unit that is now under
construction on the School Farm. The boys raked and
bailed the oats on the 80 acre School Farm. During the
second semester they were joined by Mr, Maynard Mc-
Mahon, who is studying to be an agriculture teacher. Mr.
Mclvlahon trained members of the organization in public
speaking. The boy who won the honor of representing
the Stratlimore Chapter was a freshman. Burns. At the
Sectional contest held in Woodlake. Norman took fourth
place among many other schools. On the night of April
third, before they left for the Grand National Junior Live-
stock Exposition at the Cow Palace, San Francisco, the
F. F. A. boys held their third annual livestock show on
the football field. There were thirty steers and forty
hogs shown. For the pleasure of the pa1'ents. as well as
friends, Arthur Sloan and Max Hurt brought their rabbits.
The chapter project lambs were also there to add variety.

and Fisher trophies for having the best steer and best hog

The Strathmore High School Y-Teen club didn't get started
until December this year. However, they accomplished a.
good deal in the short time they were active. The group
held night meetings at the homes of various members.
They planned their entire program themselves, under the
direction of Miss Aubery, new club adviser. Officers who
served the group were: President. Glenda Marchg vice-
president, Ona Lee Powerg secretary, Judy Tocchini: treas-
urer, Lola Mae Longley: program chairman, Carol Bequetteg
and devotional chairman, Dell Juan Hughes. The club
raised money and helped send two delegates, Judy Tocchini
and Barbara Branch, to the Y-Teen midwinter conference
at Asilomar. Eight other members attended the confer-
ence. Mrs. Claude Branch and Miss Aubery accompanied
the group. The Y-Teens held a slumber party at Glenda
March's home after a basketball game. A rollicking good
time was had by all, especially by Miss Aubery.

the annual Mother-Daughter Tea. This group presented
the program for the affair. Several girls attended mem-

opportunities for meeting girls from the different clubs in

The thirty selected voices of the advanced
chorus were blended, under Mr. Staton's
direction, to give enjoyment to the com-
munity and to the student body. At the
first of the year, they took part in the All-
County Chorus, which presented a program
for teachers at institute. Then, in Decem-
ber, they gave a Christmas cantata for the
community. In March, the group took part
in the Tulare County Music festival, which
was followed shortly by the comedy operetta,
"The Belle of Bagdadf' The setting was in
Bagdad, and the authentic, colorful costumes
were very effective. Featured soloists in the
operetta were Jeri Willows, soprano, as the
"Belle," and Bobby Bradley, tenor, as Dick
Taylor. Besides these programs, the chorus
has given special performances for various
church functions, for the Women's Club, and
for student body assemblies. At the numer-
ous performances throughout the year, so-
loists were Mary Blackwood, Lois Fitz-

Babes opened the 1951 football season with a. triumph over McFarland by a tune of 26-13. Then the Babes were defeated by
a big' and powerful Shnfter club 45-0. The Babes got off to a. slow start when meeting a fast Porterville club and were
defeated 31-6. As the Babes started their league season they were defeated by a surprising Orosi eleven, with a wide
margin of 27-0. Then the Babes met their rivals, Lindsay. Getting off to a good start, the Babes were outlasted by a.
pov.'e1'l'i1l Lindsay club 38-7. The Babes were defeated by the Dinuba club 27-0. After losing three in a row, the Babes
came to life by overliauling the Avenal team 20-13, only to lose fi close one to Woodlake. 32-20. The Babes climaxed the
season with the placing of guard Clyde Gartung on the all-league team. Those out most of the season because of injuries

For the Lindsay game something it little different was

body turned out for the lighting of the fire and the burning

during the evening topped off by a serpentine and a speech
from the Coach. The next evening, with police escort, an-

on to the ball park. This spirit wasn't just a temporary
thing but it lasted throughout the season.

In the spring of 1950, the Strathmore Spartans baseball
club was organized. Since that was the first year of base-
ball for Strathmore in many years, the players have not had
too good a baseball club for the last two seasons, but as the
years pass the team will grow stronger and mightier. One
of the most exciting games this year was with Avenal. The
score was 0-0, until the 13th inning. The next pitch was hit
hard into left field for a three-base hit. The next batter
bunted down the first base line and the game ended with the
score 1-0 in favor of Avenal. That's the kind of game any-
one hates to lose. Another exciting game was with Lindsay.
One of the best hitters on the Lindsay tcam was Bill Wed-
dell, who hit one deep into left field over Ronald Going's
head, making a three-base hit and knocking in one run. In
the 4th inning Strathmore rallied up 2 runs to tie the score
2-2. Then Lindsay tanked up one more run to end the game
3-2. Speaking of exciting games, how about the game be-
tween Woodlake and Strathmore? At the 5th inning the
score was 6-0 in favor of Woodlake. But in the 6th inning
Strathmore rallied up 6 runs to tie the score. But as usual,
Strathmore got over-anxious and lost 7-6. The game with
Orosi wasn't too exciting. It was the opening game and
with only one week's practice. no one expected much.
final score was I3-2 in favor of Orosi.
The next game was about the worst game they have ever
played. In the 7th inning Roy Britt got a home run. The
final score was 6-l in favor of Dinuba.
The players were Lloyd Thetford, Gene Burgdorf, Roy
Britt, Wimpy Roberson, Welch Hudson, Ioe Wallace, Ierry
Nanamura, Tommy Hirabayashi, Ronald Goings, Oscar
Gower, Don Carlson, Roy Murdock, Bill Murdock, Harold
Stein, Ray Foster, Dickie Reed.
Strathmore had a new coach this year, Cecil Harris, a
graduate of Fresno State College. We, the students of
Strathmore High School, wish him the best of luck in the
future years at S. U. H. S. -by Roy Britt

Cu the ereiiingxs of December 13 and 14, the Cafeteria was
tr:insl'orniccl into gi little theater as the Junior Class presented
its annual play, "Moonlight and Applesaucef' The audience
observed. iii the setting of the Barnes living room. some of the
trials and tribulations of the family and friends. The plot
4-eiitered around the love affairs of Kay and Nita Barnes,
played by Dfll Juan Hughes and Ellen Woody. Their harassed
hey friends, Frank Eastup, Johnny Sola. and Oswald Drew,
Billy Jiirkson provided many laughs for the audience. Eli
Barnes. played by Welch Hudson, and his Wife, Ellen, Carol
Bequclic, were continually in a state Of turmoil concerning
Eli's inventions and Ellen's investments. The two criminals,
Archie the Supper, Dorman Collier, and Lillie, the Lynx, Don-
na Lowe. kept Hamilton Barnes, played by Harold Spuhler
and his girl friend, Gertie, Georgia Rogers, puzzled and
worried for most of the play. Adding to the general enjoyment
of the plot were John Wilcox, as the officer, Ruth Gange as
Grandmother Barnes, and Phyllis Knutson as the girl reporter.
No play is complete without a production staff and the
Juniors were fortunate in having one of the best. As as-
sistant director, Patty Conley did a capable job. Barbara
Nelson managed the business affairs of the production quite
efficiently. Other members of the staff were Delphia Pierce,
Ona Lee Power, Judy Tocchini, Bette Anne Oswald, Joe Fox,
Donald Goings, Marcella Dye and Jessie Reyes. Special credit
should be given to the hardworking director. Mr. Cecil Harris.

As the third quarter got un-

season. In fact, basketball
games occupied most of the
Friday ani Saturday nights
during the season. This year
special interest was shown in
the games since they were
being played in our new
Lightncr Gym. Even with-
out blcaehers, the gym was
packed for nearly every con-
January and February were
the months of the heavy
rains. It wasn't unusual to
see teachers and students
alike trying their best to by-
pass large pools of water
that hindered the passage
from building to building.
Especially the trip to and
from P. E. was responsible
for much of the mud collect-
egl in the classrooms. The
latter kept the janitors busier
than normal for that time of

The annual staff sponsored
an "Annual Queen" contest.
F o u r representatives, one

You will recall from the Calendar of the
Year that the fourth quarter had more ac-
tivities than all the others combined. As
usual, it was the old rush-rush with some-
one going to some extra-curricular affair
practically every day. Schoolwork - and
homework-went on as usual, and you sand-
wiched them in somehow. One of the first
affairs was the exciting, different Senior
Play on March 15, Csee page 483. It was
followed by the basketball banquet staged
at the Elementary School by the student
Council on March 21. P. Huxtable ruled
over the affair as queen, with I. Norris and
M. Kissick as attendants. The coaches, Mr.
Berryhill and Mr. Lindgren, presented the
awards and trophies to the teams. It was
a swell affair with 3 good attendance
Of course, you remember the girls who dressed outlandishly for
a week-yes, the second semester Service Club initiates. The
Third Annual livestock show was held on the football field on
April 3, fpictures on pages 50 and 545, and the boys left the
next morning for the Cow Palace in San Francisco. As with
our other school affairs this year, there was a good attendance
from our public-minded citizens. Another highlight of Spring
was the operetta on April 4, also held at the Elementary school.
It was one of the most difficult operettas the chorus has pre-
sented, but they did an excellent, entertaining job. The action
took place in "Bagdad," where some movie scouts had gone
to find the "Belle of Bagdadf' a beauty who had been acci-
dentally pictured in a newsreel, and had literally "sent" Holly-
wood. The scouts finally found the belle, but not before they
had some trouble with the Arabian potentate. 1Pictures on
page 50.1 The operetta was the last event before Spring Vaca-
tion, which was the next week. You all enjoyed a change of
tempo, and at last, some relaxation. VVhen you came back the
Student Council began to arrange for an exchange assembly to
present to neighboring schools.

Student Body elections, to be held early
under the new school constitution, were
postponed two weeks because of conflicts.
They were held the last week in April. You
will see the results listed under the picture
Planning for the annual Community Day
and Homecoming got under way and was
pressed on with good results. The day was
May 9, and the affairs began with an as-
sembly at 1:30, at which J. Willows, E.
Morey, C. Fillmore and L. Alcins performed,
and some alumni gave talks. At 2:30 a. base-
ball game was held with Woodlal-re on our
diamond. They beat us, 13 to 3. The game
was followed at 6:00 by a delicious barbecue
on the athletic field. During the course of
the meal, there was entertainment by Miss
Carol Lambert and Mrs. Ann Lumsden, of Porterville, and the
ensemble of A. Cole, S. Anderson, D. Hughes, J. Tocchini, and
J. Willows. Following the barbecue, there were two dances, a
modern dance at the Memorial Building, and a square dance
on the tennis court. The F.F.A. Parent-Son Banquet was held

at the Memorial Building on May 15. The boys cooked the meal
themselves . . . Senior finals were held on May 26, and the
Seniors had Tuesday, and Wednesday, off as "Ditch" days. On
Thursday. final exams were held and that evening, the Service
Club sponsored the second annual "end-of-school" party, held
at the Lindsay Park. There were swimming and refreshments.
Saturday night the Junior-Senior Banquet was held at the
Memorial Building. The eats were delicious, and everyone had
Sunday, June 1, was Baccalaureate, held at the Elementary
School auditorium. Reverend Lester H. Allison presented the
message. Monday you all came back to school for the last get-
together and a farewell to the Seniors. Everyone signed
PLEIADES, got report cards, talked, and had a good time,
That night was graduation, held on the athletic field. The
graduates marched to "Pomp and Circumstancef' and received
their diplomas to climax their four years of high school. So

Hat Day and Rube Day are two long estzilililied "institutions" at SUHS. When Rube
Day was originated, the idea was for the juniors to all dress like "rubes" ihoboest. The
idea has grown and enlarged until just about any unusual clothes are worn. This year,
the "rubes" ran f1'0m long "undies" to Mother Hubbards.

A school quite so n1ce as thee
One wxth an atmosphere so falr
We learned much more whxle we were there
One wlth so good a faculty

Four years have passed we have to leave
But stlll the pleasant mem r1es cleave
The school partles that we ve had
The ln s and out s of every fad
And wlth all th1s weve just one peeve
