RALPH D. WADSWORTH

The war years of 1942 to i945 saw many drastic changes
come to University high school. Carefree activities which
have marked campus life in former years took on a serious
import. With purpose and zest, boys and girls plunged into
the war effort. One by one, classmates and teachers began
to leave for the armed services. Yet through the guidance
of administration and faculty, University has managed to
retain much of the warmth and friendship of past years.
With practiced adeptness, the administration handled the
problems of acceleration, part-time programs for war work-
ers, victory classes, air-raid drills, civilian defense, curtailed
teaching and maintenance staff, and the rest. As always,
the hand of friendship and the word of good advice guided
students in the old friendly way. Mr. Wadsworth's fine
character and personal interest have more than once be-
friended a new student or helped a boy to select a useful
branch of the armed forces. Both vice-principals, the coun-
selor and the registrar have wor-ked with individual stu-
dents to make their high school years happy and success-
ful through adjustment to rules and a wise selection of
classes. The constant stream of returning University serv-
icemen and women, former students, bears witness to the
fact that University high school retains the place it wins
in the hearts of all who enter here. After Vice-Principal Raymond Casey 'joined the
Seabees, and his successor, Mr. Mann, became principal at jordan, Mr. Ramey was
advanced to the post of vice-principal. Mrs. Brooks, former home economics teacher,
became counselor when Dr. Lombardi left to take a vice-principalship at San Pedro.
Before the Allied armies reduced the threat of enemy attack on the west coast, Uni-
versity high school was organized for full protection against any enemy action. Black-
out preparations were madeg many students became junior air raid wardens and took
civilian defense posts wherever they were able. Throughout the war-crisis years of
i942 to l944, the student body, under faculty supervision, did everything possible
to aid the war effort. Red Cross drives, the buying of War Bonds and Stamps, paper
drives, all were taken in stride and put over with great success by the student body.
