DESIGN FOR OUR FUTURE ... A pattern, a �uundation for the life that will be ours, and for the world that will be ours-that is what the youth of today is seeking; a g11ic.ling force; a star to steer by. It is only through education that we can. attain what we are seeking and gain an under­ st.1nding of what makes up the design for our future. It is not a �irnple thing, easily defined, but a c:omplex struc:ture com­ posed of many parts. Important in the design is the lrnowledge of the past, the basis of our faith. It serves to point the way that we are going, a never-ending path of development. Another part is the knowl­ edge of the present. Our modern <lay inventions and modes of life stimulate us to the desire for further betterment. But a larger and more integral part of the design is that knowledge and experience and desire which we ourselves acquire. We cannot rely upon others to point the way to happiness. We must exercise our own abilities and initiatives, molding care­ fully the design for our future, for on that design rest the chances for survival of those ideals we hold in such esteem ... peace, security, and freedom. Let u.s plan thoughtfully.. 2







Every Senior who gra<luates from Claremont High School leaves behind him an unforgettable friend-a frien<l whose ready smile an<l cheerful "Hello" have made each of us feel a CJUick glow of warmth. Many times every day his work is interrupte<l by our pleas for help, and always, un­ selfishly, he comes to our aid, no matter what the time or situation. His unending patience has earned our deep ad­ miration, and sincerest thanks. ft is our privilege to dedi­ cate EL ESPfRITU DE 1951 to Frank Gettman.



Just as it is impossible to accomplish a task without skill and equipment, it is impossible to form the Design for Our Futw-e without directors and leaders. These people help us to use our skills and to develop our abilities. Our elected officers work for the good of the school and the interests of the student body. They are responsible for main­ taining a friendly, cooperative spirit. Together, these Designers are building a successful future.

We are the builders, the students who must construct for ourselves the happy future we desire. In school we lay the foundation stones for the years to come. This foundation must be sound if we are to fulfill the design for our future. 18

The Master·Touch They're leav[ng. Yes, the class of "51" i.s gradu­ ating. How different they seem from what they were on that first day in September 1945 when they enrolled at C.H.S. for the first time.

As we look back on the years, we see a class that has grov,m and matured by leaps �nd bounds, learning from all their classes and ex• periences. They took the hard knocks along with the rosy days and profited by them. This dass will be hard to replace. Their scholastic ability and sportsmanship will leave a great challenge to us.

�fasterfully led by their class presidents, Cil Oliver and George Madsen, they planned suc­ cessful activities. A good number of them helped run our school government-besides lead­ ing the way in extra-curricular activities. But, most important of all, they gave to our school a wonderful spirit and a high guality of sports­ manshi!? unequalled in the past. At the present time, the world situation doesn't look too promising. We wish you luck, but we neecl not worry. You have prepared well your design for the future.

They have al.ready proved as a d>\ss their enthusiasm a11<l drive ill the rn;inner in which they have entered into school activities nnd backed class projects. The energy aud spirit of the Class of '52 rrnd the co-operation which it h:1., given its officers throughout the year played a major part in milking the school year of 1950-51 an inspiring SllCCess. In student council, stlldt-nt body events, �llch as plays ancl dance,, and on nthlet1c li'a1ns, the Class of '52 h:ts helped to set a standard for the Junior Cl,1sses of the future. Thev have also done well as students, and their friend!� �l)irit of <-o-o"peration with the faculty will be r<·membered for years to coine. Perhaps a bit too ent husi;istic at limes. but always r('ady .ind willing to hnndle any problem that the future may hring. th<' Class of ·52 m;irelws 011-a g;roup of kad<'rs. ;llhil'tt•.,. and .�tudt'nls of which C.f-1.S. m.1y well be proud. 30

The Sophomore class has been an 'industrious class this year, trying to get a head start on fund-raising for the important Jr.-Sr. Prom next year. It started with the sell-out fish pond at the Halloween Carnival and cli­ maxed with the school dance put on by the Sophomores in April. Several Sophomores received letters for varsity foot­ ball and one member of the class of '53 received a letter for being a member of the cross country track team. B track and baseball were greatly aided by the Sopho­ mores. Five of their number were seen in the school produc­ tion "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay," and the oper­ etta and Talent Show were enthusiastically supported by the class of '53. Four Sophomores were club presidents this year and ten were members of C.S.F. These activities are but a small pattern in the design that the future holds for the Sophomore class.

Several of the Freshmen were in the Talent Show and several of them were in "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay."

Organizntions within the school are many and varied, each with its own pattern. Togetber they form a strong design for high school living that provides light and color for the more routine tasks of the year. These Designs offer a wide choice to students, ranging from service associations to groups with special interests, and pro­ vide a base for future activity ,md development.

WOLfUl\t'lt[T STh\f The Wolipacket Room is the workshop of the school's iournal:istic talent. Under the able leDclership of co-editors Carol Ann Jobe and Bob Vont!erReith. the newspaper bas had a successful. if somewhat hectic yec1r. Bi-mo_nthly \Vednesday c1eac1lines seemed to recur too frequently. The constant cry \Vas "\Ve don't have enough sruff1 Somebody write an article, quick." The s'taff mem­ bers, busy with their sh1c.lies, struggled bravely to meet tJ1eir as­ signments. Perhaps no Drew Pearson or \\/alter \Vinchell was developed, but the paper came out on time, and evtcryunc had a lot of fun. Mr. tvfcGill, \Volfpacket advisor, became ,1 reel pencil expert and cultivated a decided squint ce.:iding WoHp.:ickct mate­ rial. t\fr. Stanley Llfson of the Claremont Courier had the pre­ carious job of printing the p,iper, with the assist.1nce of the long suffering printer, and other members of the Couric>r's staff. In June the Editors bade a sacl farewell to the \Volfpacket, with much sage :id vice to the new st1ff. All in all. it was " \\'Ondcrfu I year.

The traditionally gale event of the Christ­ mas season was again sponsored by the \Volf­ packet. A large crowd of both Junior and Senior High Students filled the Sycamore Auditorium, where Mr. Santa Claus beamed broadly from his perch on the balcony. Bob­ bie Whiting, last year's Queen crowned love­ ly Barbara Schrink .:is Christmas Queen. Her court consisted of Neva Hill, Nancy Taft, Carolyn Ferrill, Anita Molina, Mary Wil­ liams, Marjorie McBurney and Jackie Frost. Music was furnished by the Fathers' B,1nd with Dr. Milton Jones as soloist Members of the art club, The IJaubers, provided the unusual decorations which utilized the San­ ta's Workshop theme.

The Business Club, with the aid of Mr. Fraser, accomplished several projects this year. The purpose of this new club is to acquaint the members with different phases of business. With this in mind they were given the opportunity of actually see­ ing local business in action, including a field trip to the Fontana Steel Mill. Patsy Rugh was president and Eddie Tseng, vice-president for the first semester, while during the second semester Betty Sumpter, president, and Marcia Max­ cey, vice-president, were the leaders. The future hope of the club is to render efficient business services to the community.

LIBPJPYa/JB Working ·under the direction of Mrs. Ma­ honey, the library club has worked hard to give help to students using the library and its facilities. The club has met every Tuesday during activity period, and all of the members have given at least one period each week to work in the library. The members see that the books are on the shelves in their proper orJer. They also aid in checking out books and maga­ zines to those students having occasion to use them. In the spring the club presented an assembly program, "The Clock Struck Twelve." Ila Rae Hauge was the president for the first semester and Barbara Graf for the second.

All the girls in tlic· sc11inr l1igh sch,101 ,trc united i11 an organizatio11 which gives each girl ti}(' oppnrt1111it1 h,r lricnclship with .ilL and lor service to our school.

The next event was the fashion show sponsored hv Petite Paris in which Girls

League members did the modeling. On ?--·fay 26, the girls were given the oppor­ tunity of showing the hoys thl'ir domestic: talents by serving at the: All Sports l\a1ir1uct. Their 1nccti11gs were hel<l monthly ,rnd the progr;rn1s were given by Girls Ll'ag11<· 1'vlc1nlwrs or by professional women.

Sharing the rcsp11nsibilitit·s for the very active year were Margaret Wasden, vic:l'­ presi<lc11t, N 11rn1c1 Cl aylon, treasurer, and Pvminc A nltrn;1n, secretary.
