lVler1 Whe Werlfi Per Uur Welfare 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. l6l
