H. SEPTEMBER .1, JERK, we ' re back to work. Under order of the Board of Education and after that free-for-all-brawl officially called registration day, those kids who were physically able trouped gayly (?) back to good old VJC for another nine months of readin ' , writin ' and ' rithmetic, not to mention the jumpin ' and jivin ' end of the deal. . . . the freshmen had their day — not that they appreciated it; the underclassmen really got it — and right in the neck. The screams of the pursued, the groans of the wounded, and the moans of the dying became so commonplace that even the most tenderhearted felt no compassion after so long. Frosh day terminated with a " come-as-you ' re-picked-up-off-the-field dance, where broken and bleeding elevens stumbled dazedly among the fiend- ish, funmaking upper division studes. Whatta life — and everyone was sooo nice and friendly during the " Hello Day " and dance! ... a Teachers ' Institute session provided us with a legitimate excuse for not attending this noble institu- tion. Good ' nuff, ' cause in those days legit excuses were practically not. . . . the Pirate Press began to roll off the press, featuring a column by first-semester editor Bill Bertles, who has long since departed from Jaysee premises. . . . gals becomingly (?) bedecked in hair bows and bloomers had great fun acting their age at the annua!

Jimmy Hendrickson and Bob Hall were among those featured on the weekly broadcast from the local USO this month. . . . Jaysee classes were dismissed at 10:45, September 9, to attend Ventura ' s Victory House parade; Main Street was lined with admiring throngs viewing the naval and construc- tion battalion groups from Camp Rousseau and army companies from stations near Ventura. (Oh boy, we gotta admit there ' s something about a soldier — sigh, sigh). . . . OCTOBER During the month of hobgoblins, scheduled assemblies got underway with the first musical program featuring the " reef " Camp Rousseau band. Man, those musical gobs really send you — right out of this world. . . , urging girls to come out for after-school sports, WAA officers were introduced in an assem- bly. After several musical numbers. Miss Randy Evans of the USO narrated some of her world-tour experiences. ... in an attempt to improve the condition

" Buy a stamp; hear your favorite recording, " was the offer of the " War Stamp Stomps " held in the Jaysee jerks ' hang-out (the student union, no less) on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Of course, none of the students would think of cutting classes unless they were badly needed, but our JC " men " did a swell job of helping (with the moral support of the coeds). . . . P-I-R-A-T-E-S Rah! Cheer leaders, Jimmy Hendrickson ' s reet little band, and guys and gals yelling until their throats were sore, all helped to make the first bang-up pep rally of the year. . . . studes of JC rushed home and with trembling fingers opened and peeked into envelopes containing first- quarter grades. . . .

Phillip Yung Lee, brilliant native of Canton, China. . . .
