California May 1946

This year, the whole world is thinki'ng in terms of the future. No year in history has been so im­ portant in building that future. It is therefore fitting that our year book also should look for­ ward. We are striving to express by the atti­ tude of our small group of young people what we believe are the sentiments of all youth in this crucial hour ... We, the young people of the world, hold the future in our hands, hands which must reach out and bind all the nations in friendship. We, the young people, must make good. In the coming years of crisis, it will be in our power to build a lasting· peace. We can do it. The world has placed her confidence in us. Certainly, we have the enthusiasm, the intelligence and the strength, but, how, we ask, are we going to direct this energy - exactly how are we going to accomplish this goal? This is our great problem, now . .. The solution is not easy. But a begin­ ning has been made. That be­ ginning was the United Na­ tions' Conference held in San Fr a n c i s c o last y e a r f r o m which came the United Na­ tions' Charter. The ideals in that Charter are high but we can reach them, we must ... The struggle

for peace will require the ef­ forts of men naturally gifted with leadership. Then, too it will take the slow, steady, hard work of all the little people you and me. It will not come all at once. It must be built on and improved year after year. Never will youth be freed from the duty of striving and pushing forward. As long as there is something that can be made better there will be men born with the will to work for the future ... From the United Nations Charter we have discovered three essential tools for youth's task - 'MUTUAL UNDERSTAND­ ING', 'SOCIAL COOPERATION', and 'UNITED STRENGTH'. We have in our own ·small school minority groups - Japanese, Chinese, and Spanish. Working and playing together has brought us to a.closer understand­ ing of each other's culture and problems. It is this same 'MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING' and 'SOCIAL COOPERATION' which we must strive for on a larger scale - a world-wide one. Small groups like our own are an important part but it is only with youth around the world in 'UNITED STRENGTH' that we are going to be able to achieve our ideals of peace and security. In the years ahead, these must become the guides of our actions, and if they do, they will be the keys to a great tomorrow.


::Dedica lion


Bringing Claremont High into wide prominence is one who well deserves all the credit and acclaim she has received. All of the students have appreciated her enthusiasm in school activities. It has been a rare privilege for those in the chorus and ensemble to work under such an in­ spiring and capable director.

Coming to us during the war was a man we have come to like greatly and admire during his brief stay at Claremont High. He is returning to his former job at Pomona College next year and it will be a great loss. Whether having him as a teacher, a coach or iust a friend he was always a favorite.

So in sincere appreciation, we dedicate El Espiritu de 1946 to MISS RUTH KROUCH and MR. COLVIN HEATH

'TO ENSURE PROMPT EFFECTIVE ACTION' Meeting regularly every two weeks, the Student Council constitutes the student govern­ ment of C.H.S. Composed of the student body officers, the president and an elected representative from each class, the group was more active and outspoken than usual this . ear. Headed by Don Eakin, student body president, many activities were sponsored, Two clothing drives and a paper drive proved worthwhile and under the leadership of +he Student Council, each class sent boxes of food and clothing to Holland ....Also it was reported that the student body funds kept increasing every year, but were never spent. Naturally it wasn't very hard to do something about this and so money was voted Ior much needed cheerleader sweaters and experimental stage lights. . . . Perhaps the greatest good the Student Council did was in giving the members a chance to express ·he views of the students about school problems and to see if a solution couldn't be Iound with the willing help of advisors, Mr. Booth and Mrs. Williams.

The gates are open and the bars keep us within these walls no more. We're out! We're free! Our high school days are over! We're leaving - we're not coming back and we're taking only our memories - memories of six years. They were long years, but they were full of fun, hard work, companionship, and the ioy of being together. Some of us will be going to college, some to the armed services, and some to work. But will any of us ever forget that first day of school six years ago; our presentation of ''Julius Caesar" that had the student body rock­ ing; the declaration of war, December 7, 1941, which meant so little to us then and so much in these last few years; our class parties; the girls' initiation to G.A.A. when they asked for more raw eggs iust to show how game they were; the "Sadie Hawkins" dance when every girl invited the boy of her dreams, (Re­ member your choice?); the day we sprang our sweaters; the Junior-Senior prom when we wanted so much to be in the shoes of the departing seniors; the end of the war and the changes it brought; our first day of school as Seniors when we felt so important; ·the secrecy of our class meetings; our final plans; the Juniors' farewell to us - the Junior-Senior prom; Senior assembly; the Senior dinner and finally graduation. Will we ever forget? How could we!

47 Jauntily striding through every undertaking, the Juniors brought the year to a triumphant finish. The traditional sweater spring was so delayed, because of the war, that the class almost lost hope. But finally, resplendent in grey, clinging to the sides of a fire engine, the class of '47 exhibited their sweaters to the school. The end of the day found them not quite so cocky after the Sen足 iors had taken a hand.... During the year Jack Smith, two足 semester president, and advisors, Mrs.Williams and Mr.Arring足 ton, had their heads together many times making class plans. Following in the footsteps of the Seniors, who revived the tradition of class rings, the Juniors ordered theirs also .... Many were the activities that could not have been undertaken without the active and loyal support of the Juniors. In dramatics the boys were welcomed with open arms. Music and athletics found them doing more than their share also. Preparing for their hard Senior year they helped shoulder many of the responsibilities of the student body. The gala Junior-Senior reception under co足 chairmen Coates and Corson, held in May at the Chino clubhouse, was really a stupendous climax for the year and a grand tribute to the departing Seniors.

Typical of our Sophs, was the day they established a new tradition by flowering out one noon in red and grey '48 beanies. These were worn the rest of the year although many were quite unrecognizable after -he violent fighting that ensued between the Sophs and Juniors. Despite the strong masculine influence ·n the class the girls' capability was recognized by �ne election 'of Inge Breitner and Shirley Throne as £•rs+ and second semester presidents. A Lil' Abner, Daisy Mae class party was given and was the scene of much eating, folk dancing, and riotous chases typi­ ca of Sadie Hawkins' day. With an increasing amount o! school spirit and interest in Senior High activities ~ne Sophomores finished the year with great hopes for their Junior year.

Part of the Senior High at last! With that goal at­ tained the Freshmen swaggered through the eventful year, smiling condescendingly at the admiring Eighth graders. The girls played enthusiastically in G.A.A., and bore the initiation like good sports. The boys showed their ability in track and basketball, giving the older boys real competition. Everyone helped out in the Red Cross drive and boxes for the Dutch chil­ dren and few grumbled at the harder work and more responsibility which always comes to Senior High stu­ dents. To presidents Mike Toomay and Tommy Brad­ ley goes the credit for leading �n active class through a strenuous year, punctuated by a treasure hunt, par­ ties and noisy class meetings!

Tops in Junior High and full of ideas and pep - yes - that's the Eighth grade. Determined not to be outdone by the older students, a Junior High Basketball and Track team were formed with the Eighth graders taking the lead. They took over for the busy older students by giving a very beautiful Christmas pageant. Then in the spring they organized a dramatic club. Bob Dunham and Gaylord Cummins had the responsible task of leading the class through the year. As next year's Freshmen, the class of '50 has much in store for tbem and certainly their pep and new ideas will be welcomed by the Senior High. Good Luck!

Five more years to go! Certainly if they're all as eventful as this first one, the class of '51 has a lot in store for it. Bill Howell and Jim Piatt serving successively as presidents, were strongly supported by the class in their various activities. The first of March, a very successful class party was given with- the "March Wind" as the theme. The Seventh grade made their contribution to the newspaper world, in the form of a Junior High newspaper, the "Wolflet," co-edited by Frances Cook and Shirley Bosson. It is certainly hoped that the Seventh grade will lose none of their pep and en­ thusiasm during the next five years and will continue to be a vital part of C.H.S.

Mr. Wood, Mrs. Hull, Dr. Thom pson

'THE BIG THREE' Superintendent of Claremont schools and Principal of the high school, is well known in the community. Having the trying job of heading the schools during wartime, he now leads the schools in the very important post-war period....Vice-Principal Mr. Wood is our efficient business manager, making sure Claremont finances are al­ ways in the clear. He also supervises the typing, woodshop, and me­ chanical drawing classes ....Mrs. Hull, Dean of Girls, as well as Senior High English teacher, is well known for her ability to make English of living interest to the students and for her skill in directing the dramatic · proc!uctions at C.H.S. Dr. Thompson,


Some know her in the classroom teaching Spanish, while others see her riding a bicycle or playing tennis.Ever active, Miss Escudero has done much to promote the good neigh­ bor policy at C.H.S....Teaching French, Latin, and Ninth grade English and being faculty secretary keeps Miss Knapp working later than anyone else every day. Her first year at C.H.S. finds her becoming an im­ portant member of the faculty.

When you hear that chuckle, you know Mrs. Williams is near, advising the Red Cross Council, the Student Council, the Junior Class, running the ice cream booth, showing the girls how to be better home makers or explaining a new biology chapter.... Effi­ ciently running the Red Cross booth, serv­ ing as timer during the track and football seasons, as well as teach_ing physics, chemis­ try, and general science, Mr. Arrington is greatly appreciated by the students for his understanding, jokes, and assistance.

Those beautiful window displays and the ar­ ray of wooden sandals are products of the art classes under Miss Bolz, whose originali­ ty and ingenuity have made her class a cen­ ter of activity. . . . Always doing some­ thing for others, particularly through the Red Cross, is Mrs. Howe, who keeps straight the social calendar, plans the assemblies, and directs the orchestra....Always burst­ ing with energy, Miss Krouch cheerfully manages to get the best from her chorus and.ensemble. A hard worker, she inspires her girls to do their utmost and achieves ex­ cellent results. 29

Whether up in the rafters directing the stage crew1 at the blackboard explaining the intricacies of math, or· helping the Stu­ dent Council work more efficiently, Mr. Booth is always a favorite and a hard work­ er. . . . Serving as counselor in charge of vocation and aptitude tests is Mrs. Fitts, who teaches every kind of math from addi­ tion to trig. She also heads the Scholarship Society.

Returning to his old job after serving in the Navy is Mr. Spencer, who teaches history and helps with gym classes. Students find the years of harsh and stern reality haven't made him lose his well remembered sense of humor.... Known for never letting any­ one else win an argument is good-natured "Coach" Martin, who is trainer of our foot­ ball and track teams and who also finds time to impress historical facts upon C.H.S. brains.

Miss Colbath, as advisor to Girls' League,

G.A.A., and the Pep Tearn has helped to make them much more peppy and active organizations, besides teaching the girls' gym classes .... Mr. Heath, loaned to us by Pomona College during the war and affectionately known. as "Beefy," inspired our basketball and baseball teams through unusual seasons. For some students he had the job of portraying the thrills of history. .. . The students welcomed back popular Mr. Charleson from the Navy this year. Serving primarily as gym teacher, he also helped in math and biology . _


Cheerful Mrs. Mahoney has a full schedule teaching seventh grade English, library practice, and serving as librarian, Wolf Packet advisor and Annual advisor.... Helping in the office and in the library after school. Mrs. Leach efficiently keeps work from piling up.

Associated with those little blue slips is Miss Henricus, our school nurse, who helps occa­ sionally with the girls' athletics. .. . Dr. Stoneman, our well-liked school doctor, has the pleasant job of going to football games to patch up any wounded players. Physical examinations are also part of his job.

Indispensable to the running of Claremont High are our office secretaries, Mrs. Beck and Miss Hoppe. How they stand our con­ stant running in and out of the office is in­ comprehensible, but whether it is filling out report cards or granting the use of the phone, you find them ready to help.

Deserving untold praise for countless hours spent to keep the grounds immaculate and the busses running are Mr. Fuller, Mr. Derr, and Mr. Raley . ... Always cheerful, always willing to help is Mr. Gettman who keeps the building spotless and is responsible for the many attractive holiday displays.


••• • October 9, tuberculin tests were of­ fered t� all C.H.S. students as part of a wide spread health program. Thus if any hidden cases of T.B. were discovered, the students as well as the community could be protected. If a student showed a positive reac­ tion, a chest X-ray was taken . . . . Miss Henricus, school nurse, working in cooperation �ith the visiting doc­ tor, records students' names as they await their skin tests.

Consisting of parents and teachers, the Public School Council seeks to bring about a better understanding between the home and the school. After the annual membership drive in October, a party is given to which all parents and teachers are invited. After listening to speakers, the group gathers around the refresh­ ment table to discuss school prob­ lems.... The Council is also active in welfare work, appoints the room mothers, and sponsor·s the assem­ blies.

C.H.S.Juniors chosen from Mr.Mar­ tin's American Democracy classes broadcast over KNX on the Co­ lumbia School of the Air, each year.· The rest of student body listens in the auditorium. . . . The discussion topic this year was the current un­ employment problem. Panel Chair­ man, Roy Miller, headed the alert group consisting of Owen Faust, Caroline Mesick, Patsy Pitzer, Eloise Rainer, and Dick Taylor.... Having made their radio debut, the group went to Earl Carroll's to see the "Meet the Missus" program.

Putting out the most expensive annual in the history of C.H.S. is no easy job as Editor Ellis and staff discovered_. It involved lots of hard work but lots of fun....Things were started right off by a very suc­ cessful carnival, followed by two Hallowe'en parties for those who had bought annuals, food sales, An­ nual week, a skit given in assembly and a wonderful Talent Show.. .. Indispensables on the staff were Nancy Bronson-Assistant Editor; Carol Baber-Art Editor; Bob Cunnison- Photography Editor; and Vir­ ginia Baber- Sales Manager.Marcia Kinney and Bob Headland set an unprecedented record for the amount of advertising sold. The completed annual was in no small .part due to the hours spent by Molly Cummins-write-ups, Fronsa Thay er-social chair­ man, Vernon Iredell-business manager, Carol Sleep­ er-food sales and calendar, Lewis Burke-sports writer, Arlene Bradley and Eloise Rainer-copy. 33

Ever try to mimeograph on a machine that co足 operated only every tenth sheet or type write-ups when the typewriters were all being repaired or at least needed repairing? If you haven't, then you can't appreciate the life of a Wolf Packet editor and staff. The one consolation they had this year was that it was left entirely up to them as to when the school paper would appear. Students were al足 ways forewarned of this great occasion, however, when seeing Carol Sleeper, first semester editor, going to her classes black with ink. Despite the difficulties and the hard work, the first semester Editors: Marian Garris, Wolf Packets were the best seen in several years. Virginia Smith, Carol Sleeper ... Marian Garris and Virginia Smith were elected co-editors, second semester. Although their second semester was a busy one, they man足 aged to get their heads together several times and come up with some well-liked issues. One very important second semester discovery was Kengi Tanaka, who could do wonders with a paint brush. Mrs. Mahoney, advisor, had the thankless task of reading and co'rrect足 ing all the copy. 34


The Scholarship Society, headed at the present time by Mrs. Fitts, was organized at C.H.S. a few years after its national founding in 1921. Since then, Claremont has had a good rep足 resentation in the Society each year. This year nineteen mem足 bers from the Senior High have been registered, although re足 quirements for entering are fairly high. To enter, a student must have ten grade points; an A in a solid counting three points; a B, one, while an A in a non-solid counts one point. A gold seal, signifying life membership, is placed on the di足 ploma of those who are members of the society four out of six semesters. This honor is recognized all over the United States.

With much hard work and practice our orchestra crescendoed its way into the musical world this year. Seven of our best musicians were chosen to play in the Southern California orchestra at Santa Barbara. Director Mrs. Howe tapped and toiled to arrange the first Tri-County Music Festival held since the begin­ ning of the war. The main obstacle was that Claremont was one of the few schools to have continued an orchestra during wartime. However, with the co­ operation of the other schools in the League, the program came through with flying colors. Also, we shared our talent with Bonita in an exchange assembly. Performing at the plays was one of the most enjoyable tasks the orchestra had during the year. So, students, never again complain of the eerie sounds which issue from t�e orchestra room. That is the price of glory.

Opening the chorus door this year, you would have found one-half of the Senior High girls. They don't all have exceptional voices. That isn't necessary. They just like to sing. One of the largest choruses in the history of Claremont High, they have explored many new fields of music this year....Following the annual custom, they provided the music for the Christmas pageant. As a tribute to their very capable leader, Miss Krouch, and to their hard work, they were asked to make a record to be played over station KMPC.So March 21 the fifty girls "stacked" themselves into a bus and went to Los Angeles.Despite the fact that they had to push the bus part of the way home, the trip was a pronounced success, particularly when they heard the record they had made, broadcast two days later. The group also participated in the Tri-County Music Festival held at Claremont in May....Two gi rl s selected from the group had the honor of receiving the Babcock scholarship b y which they had the privilege of receiving voice lessons from Mr.Babcock for a semester.They were Norma Anderson and Dorothy Lockwood. . .. Though the year was one of hard work, the girls were amply repaid by the enjoyment they received from singing together under Miss Krouch's direction. 40

Claremont High has come into the musical spotlight this year as a result of our very fine ensemble, composed of eighteen girls. Combining emotionaf action with concert music, the group has achieved some very amazing results under Miss Krouch's energetic and patient direction .... Dressed in black jumpers with decorative flowers and or­ gandy blouses the girls make a very pretty picture and have become widely acclaimed. Performances at Rotary, Bonita Girls' League, Covina Woman's Club, Beverly Hills and Vista, to name a few, proved that the new type of program was very enjoyable and popular.

February was highlighted by a formal dance, girls' choice. With a Valentipe theme and the sixty handsome couples dancing to the music of the Bonita band it was a pronounced success . . . .Following the eight year old custom, a check was presented to Casa Colina, home for crippled children . ... During the year, meetings were held Installation of Officers monthly . Betty Hicks, professional golfer, Mrs. Cook, Bullock's fashion expert, and Miss Gibson, Dean of Women at Pomona College, all spoke at different meetings ....In May the annual tea and fashion show were held for the mothers....Mainly responsible for the very active year, were Marcia Kinney-Presi足 dent, Miss Colbath-Advisor, and Mrs .

Too busy to help? Too selfish to give? Not C.H.S. stu­ dents. Red Cross representatives from each class made sure that everyone did his part. They collected and count­ ed money conscientiously, took charge of filling huge boxes with clothing and helped Mr. Arrington with the Red Cross food booth. Though most of the money collected went directly for relief, some was used to buy yarn and mate­ rial which the sewing classes made into afghans and warm clothing for use here and abroad. Certainly, the need and the appreciation for the money and clothing more than repaid everyone who had helped in any way.

Meeting once a month at a member's hotise, the Spanish Clubs enjoy an evening of games and singing in Spanish. They find that learning Spanish by actual practice is much more fun than just learning it out of a text book, particularly when such good refreshments await them at the end of their meetings. For every word of English spoken during a certain time, one penny has to be for­ feited. This is put in the treasury to be used for some event at the end of the year. Usually the groups gather at San Dimas park for a picnic.... Near the first of each year a Spanish dinner is held.The students cook the food, learning how to make tortillas and other Span­ ish delicacies. 44


At the end of each school week, the students gathered together for an assembly. Planned by Mrs.Howe, assemblies were on the whole varied and interesting. Movies are always popular and why not? Just think of being able to see the best football games of the year or being taken on a trip through the Amazon valley. C.H.S. stu­ dents had both of these experiences in movies presented by the Standard Oil Co ... Two particularly thought-provoking holiday assemblies were talks by John Vieg on Bill of Rights and the Rev. Harland Hogue on Thanksgiving....The chorus and Eighth graders presented a very beautiful Christmas pageant .... Mr. Nelson, who spoke on Post-war California, Colonel Mesick who was on General Eisenhower's staff, Ma­ dame Valeska from Holland and Chester Jaeger, former C.H.S. student, all were speakers.... Musical, assemblies included a program by the girls' ensemble and an exchange assembly with Bonita by their choir and .instrumentalists. Skits and pep as­ semblies helped arouse school spirit.


Ruth Wheeler

George Colbath

Every year, we look forward to the Senior Assembly more than any other. As the last assembly of the year, it brings the Seniors' high school careers to a climax by the presentation of much anticipated awards. The Kiwanis cup, the highest honor a boy of C.H.S. can re­ ceive, was inscribed last year with the name of George Colbath, who certainly lived up to the established standards of citizenship and sports­ manship. Ruth Wheeler received not only the Rotary cup, but also the D.A.R. Citizenship award. Certainly these two awards could well go together, but never before had they been given to the same person, and to one who without a doubt deserved them. In fionor of Miss Ger­ trude Willows, who was retiring after many years of unfailing service, a new award was created by the faculty. Betty Higby and Jim Spen­ cer were the first to have their names inscribed on the plaque. They were chosen for having best lived up to the standards set by Miss Wil­ lows during her years at C.H.S. Finally with tears in their eyes and smiles on their lips, the Class of '45 filed out to a waiting world.

Curlainf Always behind scenes, but ever active is the small but very efficient make-up crew, headed by talented Marian Garris. Whether making up a small play cast or a Talent Show cast of fifty, a profes­ sional job is always turned out, despite the mad rush just before the eight o'clock .cur­ tain time and the lack of ex­ perience of most-of the crew. This group really deserves a lot of credit!

Ready on stage? House lights out! Curtain! Another play is making its initial bow before a packed house! Backstage among the actors who are nervously awaiting their cues, you will find the little known, unseen stage crew. Hours of hard labor are behind every finished stage set. But with Mr. Booth heading the rather inexperienced crew, really unique, sets were constructed.· Always on. hand to help at assemblies and spe­ cial programs, managing the lights or pushing the pianos, the stage crew deserves much thanks for always turning in a good. job.

After being postponed three times while various members of the cast enjoyed the flu, Booth Tarkington's "Clarence" was finally presented in November.Bob Cunnison, as Clarence, an ex-serviceman, charmed the audience as well as the ladies of the cast with a pair of horn-rimmed glasses and a saxophone .... He became involved in all the troubles of the Whee!er family when he was employed as general handy-man by Mr.Wheeler (Dick Cunnison). Immediately the son and daughter (Wil­ burn Cook and Deloise Scott) sought him out as their confidant.The ner­ vous step - mother (Vir­ ginia Baber) made things quite unpleasant for the governess, · Miss Pin.ney (Dorothy Lockwood) who she feared was managing her home and her husband. Mr. Stem, a neighbor (Jim Binckley) forced Clarence to re­ veal that he was really a well known man in the bug field.Then very un­ expectedly Mi�s Pinney and Clarence announced their intention to be married.With ·+heir de­ parture the W h e e I e r family discovered that they· could be pleasant to one another after all. ...Carol Baber as the Irish maid, Charles Po­ penoe as the butler and Margaret Howell as Mr. Wheeler's secretary also did their part to make the e v e n i n g a top­ notcher.


Everything from ballet to hillbilly ballads, passed through the Teller Booking Ag­ ency, February 16, to the delight of the audience. The Annual Talent Show, of course! As the entertainers performed, no one could understand why gruff C. A. Teller (Dick Cunnison) couldn't please the agent (Bob Headland), who needed a good act for his boss before he could marry Teller's secretary (Carol Sleeper). Of course, he finally found the act and they were married and we do hope¡ that they lived happily ever after! 50




"A Calamity Jane, please!" ... "Quaffing some nectar, Hector?" ... "Where are my eyelashes?" Is this C.H.S.? No, it's Pop's Malt Shoppe, scene of the lively Junior-Senior play, "Uncertain Wings." The wearer of the wings is a Central High School girl, Margaret (Deloise Scott), who gives up her high school life and handsome basketball captain iBob Headland) for a dramatic scholarship, offered her in Hollywood for a play she has written. This pleases her rival (Mary Kraus} immensely. Her friends, fellow Malt Shoppe patrons (Marcia Kinney, Joanne Yerkes, Winifred Coates, Hubert Starcher, and Paul White}, delighted with her recognition, bask in the reflected glory while the irrepressible Tubby (Peg Morgan} convulses the audience with her com­ ments. All told, "Uncertain Wings" directed by Mrs. Hull was a sure-fire suc­ cess.


Tommy Dorsey ... Gene Krupa ... Harry James ...soft lights ...refreshments ... all in one evening? Why certainly, at a C.H.S. dance! Perhaps the name bands are just on records but that doesn't keep the couples away. . . . The Pep Team dance showed that. As it was the first event on the crowded social calendar, the football season was the very appropriate theme carried out by pennants and pompoms. ... The first rain of the fall naturally started in the afternoon just after the Annual Car­ nival had been set up. So amid torrents of rain everything was moved inside. A large crowd did brave the weather, however, and a substantial sum was raised for the school year book ....



Not willing to let Hallowe'en pass without some kind of party, the An­ nual staff invited everyone to a real old time masquerade with jack­ o-lanterns, games, dancing, cider and doughnuts .... Among the other outstanding dances sponsored by the classes and organizations were

the Harvest Moon dance given by the Juniors in November and the Christmas dance presented with best holiday wishes by the G.A.A.,

with beautiful decorations and a floorshow.... Even though every­ one couldn't get to the mountains they could go to the Ski· Lodge dance presented by the Senior class in January....


One of the most talked about dances of the year was the Girls League formal which did full justice to St. Valen足 tine, with music by-a popular band from Bonita....Giving the boys a chance they al足 ways wanted, a Hillbilly dance was given by the Annual staff in March... . Following this was the Junior Class' April Fool dance. .. . As a fitting climax the Junior-Senior re足 ception and the Lettermen's Carnival brought the gala so足 cial year to an end.

With all-around athlete, Tad Johnson, as president how could the Lettermen's Club have a dull year? Well, they didn't! Getting things started right away, a " Bonita" dance was given. This however proved of no avail as the Wolfpack lost the Tri-Coun­ ty League football championship to the Bearcats. The Lettermen's big annual event of the year, their carnival, was well worth those hours the fellas spent digging up the ground for posts and then shoveling it all back again. The high point of the evening was the raffling off of a port­ able radio. The annual beach party, held primarily to initiate new Lettermen, proved to �_,;---��-• be, as you can well imagine, a riotous occasion. The club aside from iust having a good time, did do a little serious business! The main accom­ plishment was the adoption of the California Interscholas­ tic Federation's athletic rules which were put together with the purpose of making the rules uniform all o'ver CaliAdvisor�Mr. Heath, President-Tad Johnson fornia. 56

Claremont 7-Chaffey 6

The Wolfpack went into the first game of the season a little cocky, due to suc­ cessful scrimmages against the Pomona Sophs and the Pomona High School Varsity. Consequently Claremont was trailing at the half, the score being 6-0. In the second half, wanting to redeem themselves, the Wolfpack didn't once permit Chaffey to penetrate their territory. At the first of the fourth quar­ ter excellent blocking freed Bill Depew for 90 yards and the tying tou·chdown. A pass from Capt. Johnson to Dyer gave Claremont a one-point victory, 7 to 6, over the Chaffey Tigers. But was it close!

The Wolfpack's first score came when Liles blocked a Puente punt on the 38 which was recovered by Stankevich in the end zone. In the t_hird quarter Depew broke loose for 70 yards and a touch­ down. But he couldn't have done it without some fine blocking. Claremont drove 68 yards in 14 plays for its final touchdown with excel­ lent engineering by quarter­ back Burke. A completed pass made the conversion good. Puente made a touch­ down in the final quarter against the Claremont re­ serves, to make the score 19-6. One touchdown wasn't enough, though, and the game was Claremont's.

Downing a strong Corona eleven, the Wolf pack established itself as a Tri足 County threat. The passing combination of Smith to Depew made the game Claremont's. This combination set up Claremont's first score with Capt. John足 son bucking. it over. A Corona fumble recovered by the Wolfpack and a 31 yard pass gave Claremont its second score. Then Claremont was stopped on the one-foot line as the half ended. In the third quarter a pass good for a touchdown was nullified. An intercepted pass by Liles-a pass,_ Smith to Depew putting the ball on Corona's five-yard line and Capt. Johnson bucking it over and the final touchdown was made. Mag足 nificent line play permitted Corona to enter Claremont territory only three times and then no farther than the Clare足 mont 30-yard line.

Claremont's chance of winning the Tri­ County championship was exploded by a strong Bonita eleven before 3,000 fans. The one touchdown of the game came as a result of a 50 yard drive by the Bear­ cats late in the second quarter. Clare­ mont tried to re�ch pay ground as they drove to the Bonita 26-yard line late in the quarter, but they were stopped hard. . . . It was generally conceded that harder playing by the Wolfpack in the first half would have made the game theirs but unfortunately the Bearcats chalked up an­ other win over their Claremont rivals.

After :eading the Cowboys 18-0 at the half, Claremont was given a scare as Chino made two quick touchdowns at the beginning of the second half, but pulled the game out of the fire by a 24-14 win. Claremont's first score came when Chino gambled on a fourth down with inches to go and lost. A pass from Burke to Liles who lateralled to Depew was good for 38 yards and a score. The next score was the result of a 40 yard runback on a punt by Depew to the Chino eight. Here Depew went off tackle for the score. The score was made 18-0 by recovery of a Chino fumble and Depew skirting the end for 20 yards behind Johnson's magnificent blocking. At the beginning of the second half an intercepted pass and a Claremont fumble plus two good conversions made the score 18-14. Chino then drove to the Claremont I 0-yard line, only to be brought to an abrupt stop. The Wolf­ pack put the game on ice as Capt. Johnson freed Depew for 65 yards on a terrific blod which cleared three men out of the way. The game ended 24-14 in favor of the Wolfpack

Winning six games and losing four in League play, the Wolfpack, coached by "Beefy" Heath, placed third in the Tri-County. The season was marked by the equality of all the teams in the League. Claremont played a total of eighteen games, winning ten and losing eight.... At the end of the first round the Wolf­ pack was leading the League with four wins and one loss. The one loss was at the hands of the Bonita Bearcats whose free throw proved to be their margin of victory. In the second round Claremont slipped considerably, being first up­ set by a strong Corona five. This upset completely dashed the hopes of the Claremonters for the Championship. This was followed by losses to Bonita and Chino who finished first and second in the League. Claremont played many practice games, the most exciting being the one against the Webb Gauls. Claremont gained victory in this game only after a hard fought double overtime had been play�d.... The season was highlighted by the steady play of Captain Eakin, who was high scorer for the season, scoring seventy-one points in the League play. He was followed by Jack Smith and Bob Headland with fifty­ eight and fifty-seven points respectively.

Although going down to defeat in most of their games, the "B" team proved themselves to be a scrappy bunch, improving greatly as the season pro­ gressed. And with the opening of the second round of League play, they showed themselves a much improved club. Although leading their opponents at some time in these games, they would falter toward the end and be de­ feated. In the Chino game, however, they upset the vaunted Chino Bees 2016. Also they won a thrilling practice game from Cal. Jr. 30-29 . . . . High scorers were Burke, scoring 62 points in League play and Liles with 48 points.

With the score tied at I 5 at the end of the game, Bonita snatched victory away from -the Wolfpack and went on to win the Tri-County by a good free shot in the over­ time period. Here the teams are battling for the victory in the overtime period.

The Citrus Cougars came out on top with 59 points, followed by Bonita with 49 points, Corona with 35 points, Claremont with 20If2 points, Puente with I 61f2 points, and Chino with 6 points.... High scorer for the team during the season was Gale Reid.He also led his team in scoring in the League meet, placing second in the high jump, fourth in the broad jump, and fifth in the 220-yard dash.

The Tri-County inaugurated round-robin play this year, whereby two games were played with each team.... The Wolfpack came up with a pretty fair team with Smith pitching, Rathbun or Roberts catching, Reid at first, Johnson at second, Liles at shortstop, Headland at third, Burke in left field, Eakin in center field, and Snyder in right field.... Claremont in their first round of play out hit their opponents in all but one game, but always managed to defeat themselves with their numerous errors. In the game against the Puente Warriors the Wolfpack lost 14-11 as they blew a four run lead in the last couple of innings. This was followed by a loss to Corona in which Claremont again blew a one run lead in the last inning. Then came losses to Bonita 9-1, Chino I 3-6, and Citrus 6-5. Thus ended the first round with the Wolf pack hav­ ing hopes for victories in the second.

Dusty but determined, the players await their turn at bat.

M. Meredith,

Determined not to be outdone by the male athletes of C.H.S., many of the girls came out two afternoons a week for sports. These girls, members of the Girls' Athletic Association, headed by Joyce Reeves, played energetically as their sore muscles and wounds proved. Playdays held with Bonita, Citrus and Chino participating have always been fun and even though their scores didn't always show it, the girls tried their best. Then, of course, on the way home, they made themselves hoarse by singing. The annual initiation was held and the Freshmen were really put through their paces by the Sophomores who, as is the custom, were making up for everything that had been done to them the pre­ ceding year. No bodies were found however, so they all must have survived. The high point of the year was the banquet held at the end of school. Wonder­ ful food, entertainment, and the presentation of hard earned awards, pins, let­ ters and the G.A.A. cup, plus the announcing of the All-Star teams, made the occasion a memorable one and a fitting dos� to the school year.

Warm weather and lots of excess energy brought an unusual number of girls out for the basketball season. Playday was held at Citrus, November 14, despite the fact that a flu epidemic had just struck. Many of the girls played and then went home to spend the next few days in bed. The Seniors, handicapped by three sick members, played a hard up-and-down game with Citrus, losing 13-12. Bonita really made the baskets, defeating the Claremont Juniors 33-4. The luck was changed, however, when the Sophs played Corona, winning 6 to 2, and the Frosh defeated Puente 16-2. A party given by the Seniors at the falls above Snowcrest brought the season to a close. A heavy fog set in, but the hot meatballs saved the day.

The speedball season with the Seniors as interclass champions was climaxed by a playday here at Claremont with all the schools of the Tri-County League represent­ ed. This playday was unusual in that non­ participants from all the schools, came to cheer for their home teams. The games were played in halves, making it easier for the girls to make new acquaintances and renew old ones. Although the Juniors and Sopho­ mores lost, the Seniors and Freshmen were able to conquer their opponents. Mary Mer­ edith, as manager, deserves particular credit for the smooth organization and the running of the food stand. It really was appreciated by all.

Ufle'f ball Following a very short hockey season, volleyball and individ­ ual sports were introduced for the first time. After a fair­ ly fast game was developed, it was found that volleyball could be lots of fun. To end the season a playday was held at Bonita, April 6. Although it was cloudy, the rain held

off and some f a s t games were played. Tlie Seniors and Freshmen defeated Corona teams but the Juniors were defeated by Bonita, as were the Sophs by Puente. A fairly good showing was also made in individual sports. But they certainly f o u n d our weak• spots!

Manager-Maxine Dean

This year the tennis team has really been going places and doing things. Tuesday afternoons were reserved for hard practice which began to show some results in the form of faster serves, smoother drives, and better backhands. Tennis manager for the girls was Maxine Dean and Miss Colbath coached both the boys and girls. In the spring, the team played matches with the other schools in the Tri-County League, something which has not been done for several years. Also the girls played practice matches with the col­ lege girls from Pomona and Scripps. In view of the much better players, the active tennis hours were very worthwhile.

Dear Diary-Back to the old grind-Vacation went so very quickly this year. The teachers really got off to a good start. I've never seen so many big books all waiting to be read by me. Most discouraging! But it's fun to see all the kids again. Everyone's back and we have some new ones-even boys! P. S. My tan is fading already, and I worked so hard to get it!



Fun today, diary-the Big-Little Sister party. We all piled into the bus and took off for San Dimas Park. It was a gorgeous day, and we let loose all our pent-up energy, hiking, playing baseball, and best of all, eating. Starving as usual, we went to the Burger Bar afterward and did ourselves proud by hamburgers and malts.-Wonder if there's any cake in the house?



Quite a day! Spent- the morning se tting the Annual Carnival up outside the gym and the afternoon moving it inside. California, I love you! But it was swell, anyway, and lots of kids were there. The first football game­ and the score was 19-6. trying this season.

DECEMBER "Clarence" finally came through after being postponed twice. It was swell, too. Went to the Burger Bar with all the kids afterwards. 15

Christmas vacation at last! Wore my new dress to the dance tonight. There were beautiful decorations and a floor show too. Felt so good that we just drove and drove afterwards.



Oh dear, why must the best things always end? Vacation has been glorious and carefree. Even worked to earn a little extra money, though none of it is left now. So back to the books and a higher education. Semester exams. QUIET.

The last basketball game already. The fellas ended the season with a bang, defeating Puente in a close game. Took in the Youth Center afterward, and then robbed mom's icebox of most all its contents. Vacation tomorrow!! Good old Washington.

The Junior-Senior play, "Uncertain Wings," came throu gh with flying colors. I sure enjoyed the food that was left over from the party scene! Spring Vacation! We're going to the beach I don't get at least a little pink. Ahhh­ relaxation !

We gals got together for the G. A. A. All the ·awards were given and I actually I'm sitting on top of the world. The most wonderful event of the whole year, Junior-Senior reception. My dress was just my corsage beautiful! Everyone looked so been partly because school's almost over.

My most sincere thanks go to all who helped in any way to make this book possible. Mr. Jack Cannicott of Los Angeles Engraving Co. did all he could to help in every way possible. There was no problem for which he did not have a valuable suggestion. Through his eyes, I came to see what a beautiful piece of work an annual could be. I'll never forget his patience, knowledge, or his friendship. It was a real privilege to work with him. To Mr. Booth, for his encouragement, understanding, and good suggestions, to Mrs. Mahoney for always being willing to help, to Mrs. Hull for directing the Talent Show, and to Mr. Roy Day of the Progress-Bulletin who good-naturedly helped us get the book into shape for printing, I ?we a great deal of thanks. Not out of place, I think, is my expression of gratitude to my parents for their encour­ agement when it was most needed and their willingness to help in any way. Many were the trips they made doing errands for the Annual. I'll never for­ get the hard work of the staff and their willingness to help with my plans no matter how absurd they may have seemed. It was a great privilege for me to edit EL ESPIRITU DE 1946 and I sincerely hope that we have succeeded The Editor. in putting out an annual you will be proud to own.


No record of a school year at Claremont High is complete without a glimpse of the part the communities of Claremont and Pomona have played in the everyday lives of the students. The stores in these communities have filled their im­ portant role well. Many of the merchants have helped to make this book possible. And so to them we would like to express our gratitude and try to show in the next pages just what an im­ portant part they do play.


Located very conveniently on the boulevard is W o If e's complete and modern gro­ cery store. But it's more than a store, it's a place where you can always find friends. Carol and Virginia Baber are just two of the many C.H.S. students who f Io c k to this friendly store, shopping for Mom or to buy candy and other snacks during noons and after school. Besides being a favorite of the high school, Wolfe's also caters in friendly manner to all Claremont.

There's no need to be ashamed of your date's wrinkled pants, girls. Just tell him about Stock's Cleaners and when he sees the nice job done, he, like John Seibert, will soon be taking all his dry­ cleaning there.

No, maybe we don't have typewriters right this minute but that doesn't mean we'll never have some more. You know there's been a war! The typewriter situation is looking brighter, however, and just as soon as we possibly can, we'll again take our place as the Valley's leading typewriter store.

They have the very latest styles from which to choose and have every足 thing from evening capes to blouses. Shirley Throne seems to be quite pleased with the sweaters, too. Diena Warrens has the added distinction of being owned and managed by Mr. Murphy, formerly a buyer at Robinson's in Los Angeles and he really knows quality and style.

Tommy Bradley, Willy Iredell and Mike Toomay seem to be quite pleased about something. Maybe they were lucky enough to buy one of those new post-war spotlights at the Claremont Electric Service where the best in electrical equipment is featured.

If you notice an especially beautiful corsage at a dance or some attractive novelty, you can pretty well guess that it came from Casa Flores.

Baseballs, track shoes, bows and arrows? You've prob­ ably never even wondered where C.H.S. gets all the athletic equipment you use every day. It doesn't just appear. It comes from Beamon's in Pomona which serves as the Valley center for all kinds of sporting goods.



Need an extra credit? Or Seniors, do you want to take a secretarial course? Throne's Business College in Pomona can fulfill all such needs-offering as it does-typing, shorthand, and all kinds of office procedure.

Looks like Wagy Hendricks waiting for his turn in the chair. It might be that there is some spe­ cial event coming up. Yes, the Varsity Barber Shop is well patronized by C.H.S. boys who have that well-groomed look.

She knows that Crystal's has the modern equipment and +be skilled fingers that it takes to have Claremont girls always look足 ing their best.

Whatever it is that Barbara Carradine is buying足 vitamin tablets or cosmetics-she's at the right place, Runsvold's Pharmacy. Whether you happen to be in Pomona or Claremont there are well足 stocked stores both places. So make going to Runs足 vold's a regular habit.

At five minutes to eight one morning have you ever dashed to get your bike and found a very flat tire 7 Joan Thomason seems to have had that experience but she knows what to do. She's leav­ ing hers at Coy's Bicycle Shop.

Is that Carol Sleeper plead­ ing with the College Cleaners to try and get the mimeo­ graphing ink off h e r n e w sweater? Ah yes, must be! Joyce Reeves, too. Whether it's working on the Wolf Pack­ et or some other dirty job, we know that we can depend on College Cleaners to remove all possible dirt and do a neat job. As Editor of the Packet, Carol had lots of work for the cleaners and so if she chooses College Cleaners we ought to follow the advice of some­ one who knows.


Are you one of those who has trouble buying a shoe that you'll still like when you get home? Then, you should try selecting a pair from The Triangle. There, they are interestep ·in finding the shoe just right for you. Next time you need a new pair of shoes, fry the Triangle.

One of the most important stores in any com­ munity, large or small, is the hardware store. How much difference a nut the right size or some turpentine may make if you need it and don't have it. Claremonters like Bob White appreciate this and make Claremont Hard­ ware the store for all such needs. Also garden tools, household supplies, and paint are part of the complete stock offered to Claremon­ ters.

The place to go for the names you know

A department store, why, yes, we have one in Claremont. It certainly saves us lots of trips to Pomona, too! Whether we're hunting gym shoes, dresses or just crepe paper for a school dance, we usually can find it at Brickman's. The many materials are in particular demand by the girls in the sewing classes at C.H.S. Like Jean Mathison and Barbara Burke they are pleased to find what they want in Claremont.


POWELL'S With a tradition of many years of friendly service, Powell's con­ tinues to serve Clare mont in their new location on Yale. They carry the very best in women's apparel, notions, and dry goods. Apparently the three Juniors-Win Coates, Jan Britton, and Pat Hall, are interested in the stuffed animals, which many C.H.S. girls buy for their rooms. So for service in attractive surroundings, follow the lead of the Claremonters who always go first to Pow­ ell's.


Oh, no, not that! Anything but that! How ·could life be so cruel? A flat tire when you're on your way to pick up that special . date. But cheer up, help is near at hand. All you have to do is just drive into Rockie's.

It's funny how those allowances will disappear. The only wise solution to the problem is to open a sav足 ings account at the Citizens National Bank. You'll find they'll be willing to help you with your money problems in any way possible. The upper classmen like Eloise Rainer have found that it's wise to have a little extra on hand and have it in some safe place where they can't spend it. So it's the Citizens Na足 tional Bank for them and all wise townspeople.


Many are t�e times you have dreamed of big juicy steaks or delicious hot dogs covered with mustard. Don't dream, have your f a m i I y shop at Bentley's Food Market. Then you' II have some of these super dinners. For the best can always be had at Bent­ ley's. Students from the high school shopping for the fam­ ily or just buying snacks great­ ly appreciate the considerate ,service and the well stocked shelves and they, like Marcia Kinney, e njo y shopping in such a modern and conveni­ ently planned store.



In a hurry to have your sweaters and skirts cleaned well, or do you need that dress cleaned for a dance right away? Then take it to Ellison's Dry Cleaners. Marian Garris and Barbara Brown seem to have done just that.

Harold Rodewald seems to be buying feed for his chick­ ens. If you need anything for your plants or animals you'll be likely to find the very best brand at the Claremont Feed and Fuel.

Ever come home hungry to find no food in the house? That really is discouraging! The thing for you to do is to go right down to the Ware足 house Market and stock up on all your favorite foods. Why don't you persuade Mom to shop there too? Because they really do have the best in fresh and canned foods.


Need a friend? Having trouble with your car or bike? Then go to Tenny's Texaco Service Station. Featur­ ing all the Texaco products plus the best of service, Tenny's is one of Claremont's most modern service sta­ tions. Margaret Fuller seems to be just getting a tire· filled, but she knows that no matter how small the job, Tenny is ready to be of assistance.


With men's clothes so very hard to buy it's even more important that each purchase be just right. So the well-dressed C.H.S. boys have found that John P. Evans is the style <renter for the newest and best styles and for the clothes just right for them. Richard Dyer certainly has found a good足 looking coat with the help of one of Evans' ex足 perienced salesmen.

Claremont students feel very fortunate that by just going to Pomona they can find such a complete music store as Ford's. It's just the place to find a reed to replace that broken one or to buy a new mouthpiece. Records, sheet music, and a wonder足 ful selection of instruments also make the store very popular. Many enjoyable hours are spent there by such as Bob Headland who can't seem to tear him足 self away from that set of drums.

A dress that is "just right" for that extra special occasion, that's what all C.H.S. girls want. Where to find it is usually the problem, but not any more! Just stop in at Alfred Gray's in Pomona where Mar­ garet Howell and Mary Kraus seem to be buying a dress. Here your problem is solved. Not only is a grand selection of women's apparel carried but jewelry and hats are also featured. So for style and satisfaction, Alfred Gray's is the smart choice.
