Fellowship form the foundations of our school. Upon the leadership of the teacher's study and student officers' planning room; the schol­ arship of the class room; the sportsmanship of the athletic field; the fellowship of the dance floor, auditor_ium, and activity center; rests the entire structure of our Claremont High School life. Yet their use for the divisions of our book bears an even greater significance, for these fundamental traits, deeply ingrained in the characters of the Chinese people, are the roots from which the visioned New China is even now beginning to grow. Straining through the darkest clouds of war, they see ahead the dawning of a glorious day when their leaders, turning from bitter controversy, shall build together a democratic government; when their now illiterate millions shall be taught; when their sons shall return from the battlefields to build new cities; when they shall enjoy the freedom of real peace. This is what the art work of our symbolic panels is saying. This is what the Chinese are fighting for.

Dr. Earl Thompson, Principal ' To Students: Of 1943-44, in retrospect, one is conscious of numerous im­ pressions: The splendid war service records made by our former high school students, the inspiration and confidence engendered as we have greeted those who have returned to visit us in uniform, my faith in you, strengthened as I think of the commendable manner with. which you have carried heavy schedules of school work suc­ cessfully, while participating, helpfully and effectively, in the many wholesome activities of school and community. The student body executive committee, the student council, the student courts, the hall and grounds committees, and all the other school organizatipns have been most valuable in carrying on the extracurricula1 programs; Red Cross, Bond and Stamp sales, paper drives, athletics, dramatics, They have made this an eventful year. music and several more. Most interesting to me has been the process of growth-physical, mental and moral-in your ability to manage your adulthood respon­ sibilities. We have been gratified by the expressed observations of official visitors, that they too were impressed with the purposeful, energetic attitudes you displayed. Congratulations to the class of 1944! May the war clouds soon lift and leave you a peaceful future with unbounded opportunitizs. My very best wishes to you always! Yours sincerely, Earl Thom�son.

It has _been a short year in many respects. Time has flown in a way that occasionally made it seem as if many of the things that should be accomplished would never be com­ pleted.

W�, as a school, have done much

successfully this past year in the national war effort and in improving our own spirit as well. Your willingness to cooperate, to pitch in and work, was responsible for the success of War Stamp sales, the paper drive, the Red Cross drive, and the Lettermen's campaign to keep the grounds clean.

As each of us found

ourselves participating more fully, our morale was lifted. This rising school spirit made the year more enjoyab"le for all of us. So to each and every one of you, my thanks for


much help and for your cooperative

The Red Cross Council has been more active this year than ever before because of the increased demands the national organization has made on the Junior Red Cross. To start the ball rolling, a membership drive was launched. The Student Body and faculty responded 100 per cent, supplying $73.25. From this fund, contributions were made to Casa Colina, the Ortho­ pedic Hospital, and the Children's Home-Finding Society. The drive to collect our quota for the Veteran's Hospital saw students stagger to school loaded with wash cloths, funny books, flower bulbs, and cross-word puzzles. The sewing class and art department have been very active in producing needed items. With determined courage, the Red Cross Council has labored to extract more and still more cash. Without the generous support of the whole school, the Red Cross could not have reached its out­ standing success.

The Student Council was off to a fine start with capable Prexy Jones in the lead. The control of the halls was supervised by the Council, while control of the grounds was transferred to the Letter­ men's Club. Meanwhile Birkel, using all the tricks of salesmanship, put across the Triple Threat Drive to purchase an amphibian jeep, and the "Buy A Bomber" campaign. Calling on the faithful art depart­ ment for advertising, the Council's next inspiration was to sponsor two paper drives and an old clothes drive. The paper drives came through with flying colors, adding some very welcome money to the Student Body fund. An enthusiastic old-clothes gathering contest staged among the classes resulted in a tie between the Senior Class and the Eighth Grade. The remainder of the year was under the able leadership of Marilyn Daves, Earle having been called into the service. The Student Council looks back on a successful year!

This year the Lettermen's Club has taken on a new duty in Claremont High School gov­ ernment-seeing that the grounds are kept in order. Because the man-power shortage has added to the work of janitor and ground men, the club has tried to secure the cooperation of the students in keeping their campus clean. On the whole this plan has been very suc­ cessful. The few students who would not cooperate were brought before the court. This court, composed of a judge and six jurors, is in session every other Thursday. After a fair trial, the jury decided their punishment, usually a few hours of ground work after school. The offenders were supervised in the after-school work by eagle-eyed Lettermen.

This plan, which emphasizes Democratic student government, was very effective this year. We hope it will be continued in the future.

For six years we have worked here-six long years at C.H.S. From our entrance as timid Seventh-graders, through the boisterous Freshman period, and during the social Junior year we looked ever forward to the time when we should bear the revered title of Seniors. It was disillusioning in some respects to find that a Senior studies just as hard as anyone else, but the added prestige, responsibility, and achievement far outweighed any drawbacks. Under a capable first-semester president, Abbie Walden, and an ambitious second-semester leader, Mary Stafford, the class accepted fully its responsibilities as the leaders of school activities. All of the Seniors showed amazing talent in one or more activities. There were outstanding writers, musicians, artists, and scholars who colored the many events of the year. Senior boys, despite their lack of numbers­ especially after Jones, Tooker, and Wiggins were called into the Navy-back-boned the football and basketball teams, while girl athletes took honors in speedball. The Seniors leave Claremont to serve in the armed forces, to work, or to continue their schooling not only with an educational background, but carrying as well the indestructible spirit of the Class of '44.

The Junior Class plunged into its year enthusiastically with the sweater-spring on a hot day in October. To prove his bravery, everyone sauntered about in red wool, openly defying hot weather and sneering Seniors. Class officers acted efficiently behind the scenes. C. Colbath and B. Binckley performed presidential duties, while Whitney demanded large dues to support a good Senior Reception. Sabichi, Wheeler, Colbath, and Birkcl took honors in track, while, among the girls, S. Barnes, A. Tuttle, and B. Higby, hockey stick in hand, covered a lot of ground in a short time. As the year closes, the Class of '45 looks back with satisfaction-still a bit breathless, but anticipating the year ahead. The best thing about being a Junior is that one is prac­ tically a Senior!

The cocky spirit of the Sophomore class was evident from the first day, as they tripped proud Seniors and chased away the blues in study hall. R. Dyer, Stafford, Stankevich, Johnson, D. Eakin, D. Spencer, and Burke starred in boys' athletic events. After three stiff inter­ class games, the Sophomore girls won their way to basketball and hockey championships, but they ran a too-close second to the Seniors in speedball. The class made a good showing in the sale of stamps and bonds, and gave generously to the Red Cross, despite back-breaking dues. The money from dues was quickly put aside to finance the Senior Reception next year.

First to attain the 100 % goal in the Red Cross membership drive, the class also helped by collecting large piles of waste paper and old clothes. Future Lettermen showed their mettle in the field of sports. Outstanding were Depew, Smith, and Headland. Girls who have taken part in G.A.A. were good sports about being made fools of in the traditional initiation. Dramatic talent was found among the girls, who produced a successful play.

As the oldz1 mzmbe1 of the Junior High, the Eighth Crade set a number of reco,ds. President M. Fuller was in charge of first semes­ The Sanders. ter activities, and second semester· president was class ente1ed into everything with an enthusiasm much envied by thei1 elders. Particularly appreciated were their contributions to the Talent Show. During the year, a class party brightened the spirits of the toil-weary students. The evening's fun, planned by H. Jaeger anrl J. Sanders, included a treasure hunt (during which some of the prominent members were almost lost) followed by refreshment and dancing.


Looking forward to next year, wJ<:en they will be a part of the Senior His,h, (·Jday's Eighth-graders are certain they can be of value to the school.

Despite the difficulties always encountered in a scho:il where they are the youngest, this year's Seventh-graders had a great time. The boys practiced football tactics on the upper-classmen, while the girls watched the Seniors, and decided to become ladies. Led in the first semester by William Wade, and in the second semester by Charlotte Mesick, they managed to keep up with the other classes in the numerous drives. A Hitler "piggy-bank" swal­ lowed nearly $2,000 in war stamps during the year. The class also contributed generously to the Red Cross and was particularly helpful in selling tickets for the plays. There is never much opportunity for the lowest classmen to be important, but this class will someday carve a special niche in C.H.S.

It is the general op1n1on that the weaker sex, as girls· were formerly called, not only lack the wisdom to understand physics, but have no interest in it. This theory was dis­ proved by the seven girls in the class this year. With a little extra digging, and some help on the side, the fellows managed to keep up with them. Uncle Sam would really appreciate those three boys he called into the the Navy if he knew how hard they struggled to finish their physics courses three months ahead of schedule, thanks to Mr. Arrington's fine co­ operation.

From Beowulf through Shakespeare and the Romantic period, the Senior English class has worked hard in order to finish the year with the study of contemporary writers. Scraps of Seniors' biographies, bits of their philosophy, poems dealing with everything from golden poppies to the tragedy of war flowed from pens more accustomed to writing tests and ex足 ercises. Note books, time charts, term papers, and outside reading filled crowded schedules. It. was worth it, for with their added know足 ledge, they will be well-equipped for college.

"Is the saw sharp enough?" "Just call me 'Lefty', now, Mr. Wood." To boys who_ enjoy making things, the workshop offers great interest. Here, under Mr. Wood's direction, they are able to see their plans take on finished form. In Junior High classes, boys gain a thorough knowledge of the use and care of simple tools, so that as upperclassmen they can enjoy the use of the excellent power equipment. An added ad足 vantage-the boys emerge from the woodshop either temporarily deafened or else able to concentrate under any conditions.

The feminine members of the Junior High found momentary diversion in Mrs. Williams' cooking classes, The course was successfully launched amid a burst of creamed tuna, al足 though it was evident that the lesson "How to broil thick, juicy steaks" was omitted this year. In a few weeks, the girls had mastered scores of recipes. As proof of their success, it was noted that freshly baked cookies often disappeared mysteriously from the room. In summary, it should be stated that much has been gained and little has been lost in this year's cooking class.

Claremont had a football team this year of which it may well be ud-a team that forged its way into a second-place tie in Tri­ Jnty League rating. The weeks spent in grueling practice with 1ches Martin and Spencer molded a well-coordinated fighting unit ich succeeded in knocking out four of its six opponents. The February football banquet was popular, as always. Feature the evening was the election of Harold Dyer, the most valuable t'er, Robert Heath, honorary captain, i,nd Ceorge Colbath, captain next year. Dyer's name will be placed on the traditional football nket; Heath's election was unusual, as the captain is usually :ted the year before; Colbath as next year's captain, is prepared to d another fine team.

Claremont kicked off to Cal. Jr. and held them close for four downs. Preliminaries thus finished, the Wolfpack, captained by R. Eisen­ brey, took control and in three plays had the ball over for a �ouchdown. This lightning beginning was followed up with three more touchdowns in quick succession, giving Clare­ mont a 26 to O lead at the half. During the second half, Cal. Jr. succeeded in preventing further scoring, although the ball was near their goal most of the time.

In a hard-fought first half, Claremont, lead by T. Wiggins, kept the ball well within Citrus territory. Although often within twenty yards of pay-dirt, the Hillers were unable to push the ball over. The second half saw a Citrus team, fresh with reserves, which we so sorely lacked, break past the tired Wolfpack to score four times. In the last five minutes of the game, C. Colbath regained Claremont's prestige with a thrilling sixty-yard dash to score.

A series of well-timed passes and sweeping end runs kept the ball moving fast and fur­ iously up and down the field all during the game. With R.

The most exciting moment of the thrill-packed game was the result of a pass interception by a Puente man who broke away and bee-lined for the Claremont goal, only to be stopped before he reached it!

In a gruelling game, the Wolfpack, under H. Dyer's direction, proved again that numerical superiority doesn't always mean victory. Webb, armed with a swift backfield and a heavy line, made several brilliant advances down the field, The short one ending with a touc�down. yard-by-yard plunges and frequent end runs of the Claremont team eventually put the Hillers on the long end of a 13 to 7 score, with the privilege of displaying for another year the traditional Caul's Head.

The Wolfpack captained by C. Colbath en­ tered into its game against the League Cham­ pions with confidence, but Bonita's powerful line, stocked with a large reservoir of bench­ warmers, gave them an advantage over our fighting Hillers. In the first half Bonita pushed over four times to score, but the tiring Wolf­ pack rallied in the second half and allowed Bonita to make only one more touchdown. With traditional tenacity, Claremont fought straight through the final gun.




........ Chino

After an evenly matched first half, in which each team made one spectaculaf' touchdown, the Wolfpack, lead by Saltonstall, suffered a set-back. Before our Hillers recovered, Chino had gained a 26 to 7 lead. Well into the fourth quarter, the Wolfpack, suddenly sparked into action, made one long gain after another. Before the Cowboys knew what had happened, Claremont had chalked up two more touch­ downs. With seconds left to play, Wheeler shot a left-handed pass down to Birkel, who. carried the pigskin over for the winning goal.

Under O.P.A. regulations, the "X's" were not organi:z:ed into a separate team, but played three games as "reserves" to the varsity For their first battle, the Cubs traveled to Webb. Taking squad. the initiative, our team threatened the Webb goal several times, but lacked the final push to go over. The struggle ended in a scoreless tie. Out-powered and out-weighed by the entire opposing squad, the Cubs next tackled the Pomona Sophomore Wildcats. The Wildcats downed C.H.S. 35 to 0. The last game of the season was with Chaffey Sophomores. Al­ though the Cubs put up both a good offense and defense, they were unable to overcome the Sophomores' early six-point lead. Cood luck to the Wolves of '45!

How many times has it been said that a good beginning and a good ending cover up a poor story? This adage held true in the story of this year's Wolf Pack basketball team. Although seriously handi­ capped by a reserve-shortage, good sportsmanship and superb team­ work prevailed the entire season. The Citrus game, which came first on• the schedule, kept loyal fans on the edges of their seats as, in the last minutes, Claremont started rolling up the score, to win by one point. As a wonderful climax to the season the Wolfpack, many of whose members were playing their last game for C.H.S., trounced Chino in a 32-30 thriller. Even the old score board must have been nervous, as the passing minutes saw the scores mount together. A three-minute overtime period, allowed in an effort to break the 30-30 deadlock, was suf­ ficient for the Pack to score the two free shots which won them victory. Wiggins, with 49 goals to his credit, and Tooker, with 35, were high point men for the year.

As in times before, this years "B" basketball team had to re­ polish that familiar eight-ball and content itself with a most insignifi­ cant place behind it. From the opening whistle to the closing gun, the fighting "B's" gave their all, but were repeatedly smothered by superior height and numbers. Outstanding games were with Puente -in which the Blue and Whites were upset 21 to 17, and the last game with Chino-a hard-fought duel, which, by merest chance, ended with Chino one point ahead. Special recognition goes to the high-point man, Parham, who racked up a total of 44 points.

The "X" edition of '44's neophyte cinder aces pooled their re­ sources of speed and brawn to carry off as many trackfests as possible. With plenty of wins in practice tilts, the Cubs made their debut by dropping the first meet to the Citrus midgets and the second to a combined Fremont-Webb force. Then the budding cindermen took to their colors and snagged a fourth place in the shuttle relays at the Brea-Olinda meet. The team is backed by such notables as Dyer (hurdles), Towne Depew (sprints), Smith and Burke (highjump), Licon (330), Spencer ( 1320), Martinex (shotput), and Headland (broadjump).

Coaches Martin and Spencer got out their little black book and came up with a star-studded list of eligibles for '44's track �ampaign, only to find that Uncle Sam had other plans for Wiggins, 440 yd. dash, and Tooker, pole vault. Backing the established notables were such contenders for the winged foot as H. Dyer in the pole vault, Saltonstall in the shot-put, Fuller and Heflin in the 880-yd. dash, D. Eakin and Eisenbrey in the high jump and hurdles, R. Heath in the high jump, and J. Spencer in the mile. After a warm-up interclass meet, captured by the Juniors in nothing flat, Claremont played too-perfect host by dropping the first meet to Citrus. Next, an A-1 C.H.S. team trampled a combination of Fremont and Webb in a do-or-die meet, with Colbath, Sabichi, Wheeler, and Dyer taking honors. At the Huntington Beach meet, our team again racked up points by placing in the dashes and the 880. In a grand finale to its successful season, the team immortali:z:ed itself in C.H.S. track history by taking first place in the six-school Tri-county meet at Puente. With thirty-one points to its credit-five points ahead of their nearest rival-the boys came home loaded down with medals and bearing the coveted victor's trophy. Those who scored were Sabichi, taking first places in the 100-yd. and 220-yd. dashes; Wheeler, winning the 440-yd. dash and placing fourth in the broad jump; Colbath, with second-place honors in both 120-yd. high and the 220-yd. low hurdle races; Birkel, with a fourth place in the 440-yd. dash; and Spencer, who finished third in the mile. Sabichi, Wheeler, Colbath, and Birkel cooperated to bring our relay team in first.

The Lettermen's Court, established in an effort to secure better coopera­ tion between groundsmen and students, has been highly successful. Due to wartime restrictions, the beach party was cancelled in favor of a steak bake, at which time several members were initiated into the club.

They've done it! The Girls' League ended the year with money to spare-enough for two fifty-dollar War Bonds, one for Casa Coli11.1 and the other for the Student Body Treasury. Bewildered Seventh-Graders were welcomed by upper-classmen and too much ice cream at the Big and Little Sister Party. They also sponsored Citrus High School's Claremont presentation of "Our Town." Great ingenuity was shown in the decorations for the Girls' League Dance. The Navy theme was cnried out with grass skirted South Sea Island beauties and Joe Doaks, able-bodied seaman, who had slung his hammock in the center of the dance floor and fallen asleep in it. The most profitable venture the Girls' League launched was the selling of ice cream every noon period. Thanks are due to the Seniors, who have given their time and patience, and the Girls' League advisors, for helping to make this a successful year!

"What time shall I pick you up tonight?" was the all-important question just before the Sophomores had their first try at a school dance. Prancing expectantly into the library, one realized that the Sophs had meant it when they advertised a Star-Spangled Evening. The social season was thus officially opened. The Seniors soon decided to give a dance in hopes of adding to their depicted treasury. Surrounded by red-flannels and skiis, couples lost themselves to the ski-lodge theme and to Courtney Manker'• music. The Lettermen gave a dance for the admirers of the might they had displayed in their last football game. The team, feeling quite bumptious, decided to celebrate further by throwing a banquet at the Women's Club. After feasting on their parents' cookery, those able to do so displayed their dancing skill. This year, the Junior-Senior Reception was presented earlier than usual, because several of the Senior boys were leaving for the Navy. Mary Naftel, with a number of fellow-classmen, succeeded in arranging a very attractive valentine setting at the Community House in Chino. Music was furnished by Bill Thompson's orchestra, and a program which included songs by Miss Krouch and the Cirls' Sextette was arranged by Martha Dunn. From all quarters came a vote of thanks for a perfect evening. In March. the Cirls' League Dance and the Junior Dance were given, followed in May by the Lettermen's Carnival and the Annuai Dance.

No one realized, as they watched Rex Henzie pass the

Tired and haggard, the group fought on. Finally, after weeks of physical torture, they found what every eye sought-stacks of com­ pleted annuals !

Artists Forbes, Medley, Wagner, and Licon, were said to have gone delirious after their ordeal, while Photographer Coffey was unable to open his eyes to the sunlight, the result of hours spent under his black camera-cloth. Through the struggle, Advertising Agents Wheeler and Tuttle and Salesmen Barnes and Fuller kept the others going, financially. J. Spencer, as Business Manager, labored long hours counting their profits. D. Sleeper, M. Wagner, J. Higbee, and' H. Beers edited for days and nights without ceasing, while A. Walden headed an ambitious typing crew.

And what kept this group going? What force forbade them to drop by the wayside? It was a spirit-El Espiritu de 1944!

Have you ever asked a Wolfpacket editor how he liked his job? His eyes go bloodshot, his lip curls back, and he gives a wild animal­ like yell. The news was never in on time. The cartoons were too large. The stencils were cut too shallow. The mimeograph machine leaked. Enjoy the work? He wouldn't have missed it for anything!

Wolfpacket editor for the first semester was Jack Saltonstall, under whose leadership a number of full and interesting issues were produced. Jack passed his duties on to Harriet Beers and Joyce Hig­ bee, capable and witty co-editors, for the second semester.

Fewer copies were put out this year, but don't blame a la:.z:y staff. C'est la guerre! Yet, in spite of paper and ink shortages, it has been possible to put out an issue for every important event on the social calendar.

The Scholarship Society is still in existence! There is a picture in this book to prove it! Although few meetings are held, it is a chapter of the California Scholarship Federation, and has elected officers, just as any other club. In former years, the Scholarship Society has made trips to places of outstanding interest. If arrangements can be made and transporta­ tion provided, the club may visit the Kaiser Steel Mill this year. Certificates of life membership in the federation were awarded this year to Earle Jones, Nancy Taylor, and Jim Pott.

Babbling in a language incomprehensible to an uninitiated out­ sider, the Spanish Club has managed to pull through the year unscathed. A dinner, featuring hot but savory Mexican food, started Meetings were held regularly at students' the round of events. homes, with quick-witted La Senorita Escudero sponsoring. As a special event the club saw a Spanish movie at the Village Theatre. The fact that three classes were missed had nothing to do with the large attendance. To complete a full year, both classes were invited to a performance by the Padua Hills Players.

The Scribblers have a serious purpose behind their organization, but meetings were always enlivened by fun and witticisms. The mem­ bers this year were mostly girls, the boys having physics and math to Although new arrivals invariably try to hide their worry about. papers, the informality of the meetings and the presence of Mrs. Hull, advisor and chaperone, serve to break down all traces of shyness. After each reading of an unknown's literary effort, a critical dis­ cussion takes place. Any type of writing may be contribute_d , but poetry predominated this year. After two hours of work, refreshment3 are always served, more conversation ensues, and sleepy authors depart. The potential leaders of literature then start composing for the next meeting.





One may hardly be conscious of the existence of a stage crew when he sees a few boys rushing about the stage busily marking invisible objects with chalk, but wh·en over those chalk marks the set for 'Incognito" has been erected, he cannot fail to realise its existence. The performance goes off with no ill-timed curtains or off-stage sound effects on the wrong cue. For the Talent Show, the stage was divided by opening the cur­ tains separately. With Mr. Booth managing the microphones; Sleep­ er, the switchboard; Fuller and Scott, the curtains; Coffey, the spot­ light; and Sabichi, Spencer, and Hayes, the piano; the show was a technical victory

STAGE CREW - H. Coffey, J. Scott, W. Fuller, F. Sabichi, D. Sleeper.

Although they look dubious about any special problem they are asked to attack, the stage crew always arrives at some solution. Ac­ cording to them, they spend all their time hunting for the tools someone else is sitting on.

Murders, spies, Nazis, screams, and all the other requirements for a thriller-chiller were combined in the Student Body play "Incog­ nito." Set in the combination officers' bunge and auxiliary radio room aboard the U.S.S. "Imperial," things started off with a shot­ and Francisco Sabichi was dead. Suspects were a group of women, who were forced to stay together in the lounge for several days. Wesley Heflin, stacatto Nui submarine officer, gave an excellent Earle Jones, as ship's captain, was alternately a German portrayal. and an American, but equally dignified in both parts. Interest of the play centered around the identity of a mysterious English spy. Earle, abandoning both his American and German affiliations, turned out to be the wanted Englishman. Although cartoons of the cast were drawn by Chuck and strung along the hallway in an effort to identify the actors, they proved of little value in that respect, for most of the cast of "Incognito" came out of the makeup room-incognito.

The Annual Talent Show was the inspiration of the minute. In exactly ten days the script was written, talent selected, tickets sold, and show rehearsed. Take-offs on well-known radio programs were given, with comments by corn-fed hillbillies between acts. Four male can-can girls stole the show by coyly flirting with the audience. Fifty-two talented stu­ dents made up the cast, with about three­ score more working on costumes, makeup, and props. With the help of Mr. Martin and Miss Allen, Harriet Beers, Joyce Higbee, and Eve Breitner, writers and directors, put on a suc­ cessfully hilarious show. Juanita Pilgrim, welcomed new addition to C.H.S., sang "Summertime," accompanied by Betty Sanders, who also played a duet piano boo�ie-woogie with Arlene Bradley. The boys' band dre�sed as buxom beauties, gave out A soap opera, Major with "Tea for Two." Plates, a visiting actress, a mortuary quartette, news commentators, and many other radio specialties were in evidence. In addition, a famous personage was with us that night. Yes, none other than our own-Frankie Pinuptra !

Returning graduates and faculty members have thrilled us this year with their accounts of life in various branches of the armed forces. They all seemed glad to be back at C.H.S. (at least for one day) and are we proud to have them! We received inside informa­ tion on all the beauty of the s·outh Seas from Mr. Charleson, now a lieutenant in the Navy, who has really seen the world, even from the deck of a torpedoed ship. Speaking of seeing things, Chet Jaeger, C.H.S. '42, has seen plenty of work at Po­ mona College, where he was Army bugler, Leandro when he didn't forget his music. Carcia told us about the new anti-tank train­ ing that he went through. Kenny Duddridge came back to give us a pep-talk on the Navy. He had learned one important lesson: that his room had to be ship-shape, even to a scrubbed floor! Mr. Pott and Mr. Wilson, both just back from a period of internment by the Japanese in China, talked to us. Mr. Pott made concen­ tration life seem very real, while Mr. Wilson The traditional told of Chinese education. chorus and orchestra program laid emphasis upon the war, and a new type of assembly brought forth faculty talents.

It's finished! Here lies the completed book we have built. It has been a great experi­ ence for us all. Not only have we gained immeasurable technical knowledge, but we have realized again that progress can result only from cooperative effort. On behalf of the staff, I would like to express our sincerest thanks to Mr. Martin, ad­ visor; to Mrs. Mclellan, art advisor; and to Mr. Booth, photography advisor. We appreciate the time they have given toward producing th is book, and we hope it will live up to their expectations. To Mr. Cannicott, of the Commercial Art and Engraving Co., for his patient watchful­ ness in guiding this book to completion, we owe a large debt of gratitude. I would like also to thank Mr. J. Edmund Watson of the Watson Studios in Los Angeles for the time he has given toward giving us our fine Senior, Junior, and Faculty portraits. Our appreci­ ation is also due to Mr. Wood Clover of the Phillips Printing Co. Finally, I wish to thank all the members of the Student Body and Faculty who have generously contributed their time, energy, and skill toward making this annual a financial and literary success. We had counted on your support, and you did not let us down. The Editor.
