These are the guardians of our opportunities. Working harmoniously
with our principal, they help io mafze our school the hne place it is.
A Message Prem Uur Principal
f'llS "El Portalu is a permanent 1940-41 diary of all those things which
malce up our complete Tracy Union High School program. Throughout its
pages, we recognize pictures and activities of our many friends. ln the
years to come, we will examine it carefully in order that we may recall pleas-
ant memories of all those who participated.
This diary portrays a school unified in administration, sincere in purpose.
democratic in procedure, and filled with those ideals so essential to a great
democracy. Cur heritage-free speech, freedom of expression, the right to
worship, and the right to vote-did not come to our nation without a struggleg
however, they form the illar of our school edifice of real independence. Our
school maintains througff social organization that harmony and affectation so
essential to liherty, and even life itself. Vxfe learn here to huild our lives
together, creating correct adolescent attitudes and hahits of citizenship which
carry naturally and easily into functional adult citizenship. VVe provide
ractical, usahle information in terms of student understanding and actual
life necessities. We stimulate the student to more effective group action.
courageous thought and initiative, correct hahits of studying and thinlcing.
We endeavor to maintain a discipline of teamworlc, a discipline which
prizes and develops the resourcefulness, initiative, and responsihility of each
individual, a discipline which directs the egorts of individuals toward social
goals which all have a choice in choosing. We demonstrate in school the
power of honest discussion, fair play, and loyal support for leaders who are
elected to posts of responsihility. Xfve try to suhmerge selfish desires to malce
others happy. Uur school truly hecomes a dynamic force ever on the guard
to promote and protect our liherty.
It is fitting and proper that we pause each year at the time of organiza-
tion of "El Portal" and re-examine our aims and purposes in order that we
may rededicate our efforts. The integrity and initiative that are fostered here
in this unfolding life may come to fruition in service to the human race.
Miss Drenth and the Journalism staff have given a large hloclc of their
time and energy to the production of this diary, and we who read its pages
do so with a thorough understanding and appreciation of their efforts.

Those Who Taught Us All Wo Hoow
Uur faculty was led hy Principal VV. VV. Crow. The year of '41
completed his sixth year at Tracy High. We students will rememher Mr.
Crows leadership with a feeling ol great admiration. ln the ollfice with Mr.
Crow, one will rememher Miss Ann Blunrlell, the secretary. Rememher
those tardy slips, and her voice over the loud spealcer. Mrs. Leila Riggs was
vice-principal, hesides having typing and shorthand classes. She turned out
many hrilliant students. Her typing worlc was shared with Miss Annabel
Drenth. who helped the El Portal stall so very much this year. No one can
forget her place as adviser of the school paper, the S 51- A. ln the commercial
Field. Mr. Elclen Facer put forth great ellorts on the hoolclceeping and Jr. Busi-
Do you rememher, Seniors, how Mrs. Grace Fine drilled you in gram-
mar? Wasnyt she perfect? You Freshmen couldnlt possihly forget a trying
hut worth while year of English with efficient lhliss Dorothy Nissen. Miss
Charlotte Rhines, new this year, made our assemhlies something to he proud
ol, taught Sophomore English and the well lcnown 'Si Sin. Mrs. Emma
Baumgarclner will he rememherecl again this year as director of a very suc-
cessful Senior Play, and for her English and safety worlc. hive can't forget
the huslcy voice of Mr. Edward Lyon, especially his world history students.
He made our operetta a success. Rememher those awful noises out hy the
music huilding. That was Mr. Robert Schulenlaurgls Udo ra mem class Ustrilc-
ing up" the hand.
Qther memories: the man who always had a jolce, rememher, Mr. Kenneth
Westlake. The lah room gave roof of his scientific achievements. Mr.
Norman Lien taught mechanical diawing, hiology, and haslcethall, and came
around each morning with the yellow slips-how could we forget him? ln
the gym, one will rememher Miss Alice Anderson with her Mlqom Tom", and
Mr. George Dickerson with his cheery tall: and smile. Miss Meme Ziller
taught the girls the Fine art of homemalcing and hoys, coolcing. Mrs. Rena
Cross directed the cafeteria and taught quite a few of us to sew. No one
can lorget Miss Mary Hawleys teasing, and of course, she wouldnyt let one
forget his mathematics. Mrs. Ann Eclmiston taught her art with a leasant
word for everyone. Mr. Lea Mooreys history class provided fun and? lcnowl-
edge, too. The man who taught the hoys how to use the hammer was Mr.
Harvey Miller, now Hsolderecln into our minds. Rememher the lihrary and
Miss Marjorie Danton, 'Kmais ouiu and Hsempern. Two more newcomers
were Mr. R. Stanley Hill and Mr. Wallace Engluml in Ag. and farm me-
chanics. Memories: no matter what the years may hring, there will always he
those precious memories ol our dear teachers in Tracy High.

SE IUHS MAKE HISTUHY
ONIGHT l am going to write down some of the gay memories l have ol'
our last Senior Farewell Party. l stood on the threshold of Ufuturen for a
few seconds, rang the bell of Hdestinyn, and wallced uncertainty into the re-
ception hall. My First impression through the maze of green and gold confetti
and balloons was a riotous group of people, each intent on having the best
time ever before malcing his farewell to dear old Tracy Hi.
I was lirst greeted by gentle Marion Rucllein, spelling wisard, Mary Pombo,
and petite and charming Ntarjorie Gelzllzen. Edging my way through the
masses into the ballroom, l was confronted by the ideal maid, Elphia HEffieH
Sweeney, who directed me to the checlcing room. Our delightful twins,
Helen and Hazel Iorge welcomed me with their winning smiles and tlirtatious
eyes. Leaving my wraps with the twins, with almost regret, l turned and
shouldered my way toward the main staircase. Robert Given. dressed in tails.
approached me as l reached the top. Not until I heard my name being an-
nounced into the ballroom did it dawn on me that bashful Bob was the herald
of the party. '
The first couple to greet my eyes was the wwe want to be alone" twosome
of Hilda Rose and lim Nledlin. Brother foe Rose was not far away flirting
with gently objecting lWarie Goodrich, however still lceeping an eye out for
his sister. Hilda. unaware of this, danced blissfully on, pausing only to greet
llarlanrl Patten, who was heading for the nearest door to the checlcing room.
ln his mad scramble he almost lcnoclced down little Mani1.el Dutra, who was
doing his best to get to the corner where lean Rhodes and Fred Picclii were
standing. They were discussing Vvilmina Palmiter, who was conspicous in
a strapless red satin formal adorned with a gold belt and blaclc velvet poppies.
Xvillie was jitter-bugging with Mike Borras, who loolced as stolid as an lndian,
and moved his feet in a rhythmic war dance. Their fruitless ellort to stay
on their feet caused Gladys Poet and Laura Sousa to double up in hysterical
laughter. Nearby, Victoria lwarshall was the center of a group of admirers.
ln the closest corner sat Philip "Lulu" McKinnis, very much bored with the
events of the evening because of a certain brunette sophomores absence
My attention was then attracted to Everett "Tiger" Rathjen. who was
hurrying to the refreshment booth where Fern lxtitchell and Evelyn Kenner
sat pouring out Hawaiian punch to August Mazzanti and latin Goulart. John's
eyes were on the near little Figure of Dorothy Reece, whonwas sitting on the
sidelines eating up the efforts of lim Greenwood, second semester student body
president, to amuse her. Dotys chum, Georgia Peterson, was thinliing of
Gordon and loolcing with longing eyes at the haclcs of Tom Leclgett and Carol
Synak where they sat hehind a large fem. Even as she tallied, Carol was
noticeahly conscious of the side glances Gil Gillett gave her as he sat morosely
watching the couples dance hy. Trying to see what he was loolcing at on
the crowded floor, l pushed aside a balloon to see lim Abbott and Sliirlee
Randall. l was rather surprised to see them together. Last time l heard,
they had hrolcen up again.
Rather warm from the over-crowded room, l wandered out on the ter-
race to meet the jubilant Eunice Dewhirst and Les Tusup. Could they at
last he getting heyond the good-friends stage? l wonder if thereys an engage-
ment on the olting. Spealcing of engagements, there were Dolores Bartlett,
Katherine Borthwiclz, and Gladys Gordon in a huddle, prohahly discussing
their ahsent Fiances. Feeling out of place, l entered the hallroom again where
my eyes settled on the small form of Mabel Silva, rapidly talcing down in short-
hand the lyrics of the music played. An interested spectator of lVlahel's was
Mel Soares, who never could get ahove MCH in that trying suhject. He quiclcly
got over his interest when the gong rang out announcing dinner was served.
However, Dot Shaw and not Mabel was the luclcy girl who sat hy and held
the hand of ml-'yronen Soares.
With whetted appetites the whole crowd made a dash to the fragrant
tahles formed to malce the numeral H41U. l hastily clamhered to a seat he-
fore one of the rowdy seniors would lcnoclc me aside. Alasl too late, hig
Steve Arnaudo upset me in his attempt to heat lames Sutton to the nearest
seat hy "Red" Del Prete. Norma, in the meantime, was flashing her person-
ality smile at Fred Borras. He was doing his hest to attract Wanda Kinder,
who was wearing that "Ch where are you, Franlc?H loolc on her face. My
glance toward the end of the tahle sought the faces of Skinny McArthur and
laclz Tillotson, who were hecoming decidedly tipsy on the innocent-enough
punch that was heing served. Pauline Patriclz. head chef, was directing Ruth
Ensley, Betty Brazil, Helen Gomez, and Hazel Bettencourt to help Bill Egan.
who was too, too hashful to reach across the tahle for hutter and consequently
ate his hread dry. Coy glances from Lucille Colli and Nlary Alley went un-
noticed hy Bill, who was however, hlushing profusely. lean and lim Yam-
asalzi sat at one end of the table tallcing disgustedly about the Jim had re-
ceived on his report card, poor laid. An interested evesdropper was Tony
Cordoza, who wished hy Jupiter he had received even one "B" on his card.
Laughing to myself, l tumed my head away just in time to notice Ed
Harry standing sheepishly hy Ellen Knapp. She is comparatively new to
Tracy High, so was standing hy, rather hewildered. Naturally gallant, Sir
Gatlahad Ed Harry jumped to the rescue of the maiden in distress. Allen
Royer and Emil Torrison escorted smiiing Grace Schalchti and shy Norma lean
Lindsay to their seats. Each of the hoys was fighting for the girls, attentions.
and hoth were astounded when they deserted them for the more desirable
Peyton Smith, who was telling one of his famous jokes to an audience of Allen
Wong, Adrienne Stewart, and Wallace Grow. 'Stinky-Poou Harvey came
into the picture hy demonstrating to a group of girts just how he carried the
han over the line in his one and only touchdown. Lavina Lucas had rend-
ered her purse to he used as the foothaii for the occasion. The haclctieid was
composed of Dave Glover, Arthur Kaku, George Masitmiya, Raymond Lopez,
and Iohn Lucas. Dainty Palma Cotugno was so dismayed at the riotous tum
of events that she quicldy tied into the hallroom, where Helen Serpa was
singing "isle of Capriu. Russell Reece, extremely annoyed hecause of a
certain Senior girls inattention, grahhed his wraps from the coat room, stam-
med the door, and left. Charlotte Spangler was so startled she peeked around
one of the pillars and said half aloud, "What struck him?
Ready to leave the hanquet room, the guests sauntered out, hut as I
happened to glance over my shoulder, I was amused to see Peter Kooyman,
and Iohn Lucas still relaxing in their chairs. Bruno Marc'hini, also noticing
this, hurried hack to aslc the two hoys to join him.
it was now twelve-thirty, and the guests were starting to leave. As my
eyes scanned the rather empty haliroom, Betty Boltzen was seen putting on
her coat with Clarence Randolph assisting her. This was a rather disturhing
sight, hut I had teamed tonight that every unexpected thing could happen.
The haliroom was empty now, all hut one person--Cliarlie Pereira. He
was donning his coat and hat, hut as he was doing so he glanced hack once
more. The spacious hail was a clutter of hrolcen hailoons and colorful con-
fetti. The whole scene looked rather dejected as though it too, realized the
significance of the occasion. With a telltale careless wave of his hand,
Hchuctcu turned around, straightened his shoulders, and stepped out into
Thinking everyone had left, I too made my way out of the hall and
started home. Lawrence Det Sotdato spolce to me at the foot of the steps
and hailed me a taxicah. The First student-hody president of our class was
very courteous in helping me into the cah and closing the door. He hid me
farewell, stating that the past four years and tonight were memories never to
he forgotten in his mind. As my taxicah rolled away from the han, and I was
on my way home, I tried with much difficulty to avoid the very memorable
days of the past, and to tool: into the future, which I hoped would he Fitted
with happiness for each memher of the ctass of 341.

met the Martinez Panthers hefore a large opening night crowd on the local held, and finally
turned haclc their heavier opponents 12 to o. Coming haclc after a scoreless tirst half, the
Bulldogs unleashed a sustained drive of 64 yards that culminated in Captain Fred Picchts
plunge to Tracy's lirst score. After failing to convert, the Bulldogs played through a
scoreless period of ahout twenty-Five minutes. It was not until the game was all hut
four minutes spent that the Bulldogs were ahle to start their second touchdown drive.
The locals had advanced from their own 46 to the visitors 24, when the gun threatened to
halt their march. XV ith only seconds to go, Richard Rose, in for Frank Texeira, hrolce
loose and traveled the twenty-four yards to the score. The game ended as Tracy missed the

ANTIOCH 7-25 SEPTEMBER 27
Traveling to Antioch, the Bulldogs met some of the stitlest opposition of the season.
Antioch stopped practically all the Tracy oltensive tactics in the hrst halt, and also put over
a touchdown for themselves which made it 7 to o at the half. A hectic second half saw
the Antioch team score three times while Tracy drove seventy-two yards to do their only scor-
ing of the night. Fred Picchi carried the pigslcin into pay dirt for the Tracy score.
OAKDALE 7-o OCTOBER 4
Vxfith a win and a loss hehind them, the Bulldogs went into their league game, and
on the strength of an inflexible defense, came out with a 7 to o win over the Qalcdale
Mustangs on the local Field. Tracy opened the game hy talcing Ualcdalels kiclcott and going
twenty and eighteen yards on the First two plays of the game. Just as it looked as though
Tracy was oft to a hig night, the visitors hrought their much heavier line into ettect and
held t.he locals scoreless throughout the first period.
It was not until the middle of the second quarter that Tracy was again ahle to pen-
etrate deeply into their opponents, territory. After a short Qalcdale punt had given Tracy the
hall on the visitorys thirty-eight yard line, Texeira passed to lmus for eighteen yards, and four
plays later, Fred Picchi gave Tracy their league victory with a touchdown plunge over center.
Franlc Texeira circled right end for the conversion that ended the nights scoring.
SONORA 0-7 OCTOBER 11
Traveling to Sonora for the fourth game of the season, the Bulldogs were given a
light going over hy their opponents. The Bulldogs were outplayed hy the Sonora team on
hoth offense and defense. After a few thrusts the Bulldogs managed to reach the Sonora
seven yard line, hut they couldn't push it over. The loss of Picchi severly crippled the
locals on defense, hut Gene Hedriclc carried on well in the offensive joh. Franlc Texeira
proved to he the main factor in the Tracy offensive.
SCHNEIDER 52-o OCTOBER 18
The time-honored sleeper play, in its only operation ol? the season. proved to he the
sparlc that ignited a 52 to o victory for the locals over Schneider High of Stoclcton. Schnei-
der, on our scedule since 1936, has previously gone home with nothing hetter than a 26 to
o defeat. It was reputed to have had one of the strongest teams in its history. Tracy
was never threatened and won with the second string seeing the most action. Tracy had
14 points when the lirst half ended, 20 points at the end of the third period, and a total of
32 at the end.

steller hall in the lirst half and held the hig Bullalo herd to one touchdown and a conversion.
Being outweighed hy 15 to 20 pounds er man, the Bulldogs came out fatigued hut still with
lenty of tight. By crashing through the center of our line, the giant zoo pound Manteca
lllullhaclc proved too much for the Bulldogs in the second hall, and they had to yield three
touchdowns and one conversion to the traditional rivals.
' CERES 15-12 NOVEMBER 11
The annual Armistice day game proved to he the most exciting game of the season.
After the Manteca fracas. the Bulldogs were out for revenge and got it at the cost of the
Ceres team. The Green and Gold held the lead throughout the game. ln the fourth
quarter, the heavy Ceres team crashed over for a touchdown, which was their second score:

Captain, high point man,, and Martinet Trophy winner was Tom Ledgett, who amas-
sed a seasonal total of 104 points. Playing left forward, Ledgett, an expert at the set-up
shot, was a constant threat to Tracy's opponents, and more than once swung the tide of
victory to Tracy with his timely scoring. Compiling 45 points from his position at right
guard, was Jaclc Tillotson, for two years a memher of the Varsity. The third Senior on the
first string was Philip lVlcKinnis, who, except for a foot injury during the end of the season,
regularly Filled the center position on the quintet and tallied a total of 29 points. Last two
members of the UFive Baslceteersn were Gene Hedriclc and Jim Martin who were hrought
up to Fill in the right forward and left guard positions, respectively. Hedriclc compiled a total
of 55 points, while Martin counted 16.
Tracy opened its season on the home court against Patterson. Vxforlcing with mechan-
ical precision, Tracy's larger opponents completely outclassed the locals and defeated them
55 to 17. The Bulldogs next met Ripon, and hrought haclc a 19 to 9 victory. The season's
third encounter was against Newman, who, playing in their home gym, easily routed the
Bulldogs in a dull game that ended 40 to 15. The Bulldogs came haclc to start a four game
winning strealc hy upsetting the highly rated St. lvlaryls Rams 21-19. Tracy met an invading
Gustine Five and turned them haclc with a decisive 50 to 12 win.
The half-way marlc of the season was reached in a non-league' game against Escalon.
with a 55-52 win. The Bulldogs then avenged themselves hy handing the Panthers a 55
to 17 trouncing on the latter's home court. The four game win streak was hrolcen when
St. lVlary's reversed an earlier score, and handed the Bulldogs a 21-19 setlnaclc. Tracy
next came home to prepare for a last ditch stand against Newman. Although Tracy held
the lead for nearly the whole of three quarters, the visitors rallied gamely and Finally won
Having lost all hope of gaining First place, the Bulldogs invited Brentwood here for a
practice game before accosting Gustine in a hattle to decide second place. Brentwood,
hringing down a team that measured 6' 2" in height, defeated Tracy, 45-58. Scoring 4
points in the final forty seconds of play, the Bulldogs overcame a tiring Gustine quintet to
elce out a 55-55 win, and thus attained second place in the West Side League standing: the
highest place Tracyys Varsity has held in four years. A 28-20 loss at the hands of Tuol-
umne High in a post season game terminated the season on February 1 1, 1941.
TARTTNG out the season with a firing squad composed of Eagan, Yamasalci, R.
Rose, Pereira, and Monroe, mostly Tettermen Teft from Tast year, the Bees poured it to the
Patterson High Bees hy a 29 to 1 1 score. After this win, the Bees dropped their only game
of the season with Ripon Indians hy only one point. The championship Bees next dropped
the Newman Warriors into the Ioserys column. Practically no competition came from the
St. Marys Rams in their two games. Climhing on up the ladder, the Green and Gold de-
feated Gustine in a Teague game. Two more wins over Escalon and Brentwood which
were non-Teague, and repeats over Patterson, Newman, and Gustine gave the home team a
Bee Championship for the first time in quite a few years.
The Bees next met the Ripon Limiteds in the C. L F. playoff for schools of our size.
Ripon having won their Teague championship, reigned as favorites. Playing on the new
gigantic court, the locals were hafHed for the first quarter, hut suddenly they Began click-
ing and dumped the Ripon hoys hy a 37 to 30 count. Next came the Tuolumne Bees, a
tau squad that had won their respective championship. Starting all Seniors, the Bees got
six points to the opponents none, in the first minutes of play. After Tracy suhstitutions were
made, the team kept going right along, and at the half time they held a I5 to 9 lead. After
a rough and tumble second half, the Green and Gold emerged with victory hy a scant three
points. Having heaten two titleholders, the locals were declared Central Califomia Cham-
pions. This was the first time any Tracy team had held this honor. The champs were:
Bill Eagan, Rich Rose, Jim Yamasalci, Chuck Pereira, Vernon Paris, Ed Harry, Rohert
Stocking, George Masumiya, Laurie Monroe, Harper Randolph, Junior Friend, Jerry Will-
iams, and Fred Terrill.
After a fast start, heating everyone they played, the Cee team met the Newman Cee's
and were defeated for the Championship for the first time in quite a long while. This
team was very experienced and was a fairly hig team. Most of the players had already
played Dee or they were hack for another year of Cee, hut hecause of the greatness of the
Newman squad, they were set hack and lost out on the championship. The winners of
letters were Manuel Dutra, Vernon Paris, Jack Nevin, Rohert Stocking, Laurie Monroe,
and Roland Noaclc.
This yearss Dee team, coached hy Mr. Miller repeated past performances and copped
the championship again. This team was one of the hest teams to play Dee han for a Tong
time. The team not only consisted of a team of sharp-shooters hut also they were excel-
lent on defense. Most of the games were runaways for the local outfit, hut stiff competi-
tion was met in a few contests. Junior Friend, Harper Randolph, Wes Thornton, Carl
Tthurralde, William Edwards, Rodney Seimiller, and Gorden Van Ness were the letter

The tune-up games all turned out favorahly for the localsg and, improving with each

a victory was more than anyone logically hoped for, it was, nevertheless, an unexpected sur-

with the first sport of the season, voffey half. New and old students turned out with their
respective teams to enter the tournament. With the teams carefuffy selected, the noon games
were started. Each day a team would either fail to defeat or would he another step on
the ladder towards the championship. With cries of "Kill it", and Hpfay the net", the
Junior class of '42 defeated the high and mighty Seniors hy a very small margin. This is
the first time the Juniors have had the honor of winning the championship. All of the games
showed exceptionally good team work and were all played fairly and squarely.

a four point fead, and in the fast two minutes of pfay the Seniors came through with three
hasfcets, winning the championship hy two points.
Two of the newest, and two of the most exciting toumaments to be held this year
