He has served long as a member of the staff of Claremont High School. Every student has, at one time or an­ other, had some pleasant contact with him. His ready greeting, his forever willing cooperation, his thoughtful helpfulness, and his enduring loyalty to the students have been a lasting in­ spiration.

The smoke of battle has concealed many seemingly inconse­ quential and unimportant little displays of human courage and strength. Placed beside the momentous events taking place daily, such little acts of valor assume the lesser role in man's records of his march through history. Few in future times will read of what takes place in our hearts today, but they in their turn shall feel within themselves the true meaning of the· fortitude and fearlessness displayed in the small acts of human service ren­ dered so often over the whole of our earth. Many fill the ranks of the unsung. Kindly men of God follow our forces to keep in touch with Him the souls of those whose job it is to kill and whose finer channels of influence have been severed.... Those unhappy per­ sons, unable to serve for varied reasons, give everything they have through service organizations and various groups dedi­ cated to the comfort of those that went ahead. Standing foremost among those giving their all are the numer­ ous "soldiers-in-grease-paint" whose talent bridges momentarily the bottomless pit between our service men and home. None of us here can realize the emptiness of a day threatened with etern­ ity. Even less can we realize the good done to a man's soul when he sees a little bit of home, a tiny refuge from the reality of life when death is staring him in the face. The time and labor these men of the stage put into their efforts bring few rewards except for the heartfelt thanks of those to whom their services are of­ fered. Our small gesture in offering this book as a tribute to th0m gives us the satisfaction of knowing that it will bring to a few others the knowledge of what is being done by our tireless enter­ tainers.

To the fighting man away from his loved ones, there is no greater thrill than to read a letter, or see someone from home. He soon forgets the likes and dislikes which he had for various types of entertainment because the people who bring it to him carry with them a small part of America. They represent a familiar world to him called home. A man who has faced death is ready at any time to laugh at what the folks at home perhaps mis­ takenly call humor, or to rest quietly while the inspiring strains of the great masters stab his heart. Our "soldiers-in-grease-paint" from all over this country, blessed with a talent, have focused their efforts on seeing that the men who fight for them can ·enjoy their idle moments, away from the great battles. A man's life, before the ordeal he is now going through, may have been dulled by routine, but he is soon whisked away in his thoughts from the hard, realistic job at hand-war. That is what makes the differ­ ent talents which these entertainers exhibit such a blessing. As in our own daily lives, all kinds of people are necessary. Our fighting men thrill at the sound of show call regardless of what it offers them. The entertainers live through the experiences of the men with them and share their danger and fear, and therefore have a right to a feeling of pride. Never the less, as they return, the same humility that marks even the most heroic of our fighting men, characterizes the entertainers. With this book we honor them be­ cause they have served. in far off places as we would wish to have served.

Stand-ins This Year;

The Juniors got off to a flying start when during a fake fire drill they proudly sprung their smart blue sweaters. The class was well represented in student body offices with Kinney as Secretary, Burke as Business Manager, Reeves as Ad­ vertising Manager, and Wilson as Wolf Pack Editor. The Juniors were led capably and efficiently throughout the year by Johnson the first semester, and Ellis the second. The eagerly anticipated Junior-Senior Reception was very successfully given at Christmas time. Juniors entered with their usual enthusiasm into school activities; in the Pep Club, Popular Band, Girls' Ensemble, plays, and Sextette, to name only a few. On the field of sport many honors were won by the Junior boys. The girls were also outstanding in sports starring continu­ ously as Interclass Champions, and having five members on the G.A.A. Court. Several boys represented the Junior class on the Lettermen's Court also. The year has been a wonderfully successful one, and all the Juniors are eagerly looking forward to their all-important Senior year.

Pre -view The spirit and ability of the enthusiastic and fast moving Sophomore class was very prevalent this year. Besides excelling in scholastic activities, the tenth grade was studded with many outstanding athletes, De Pew, Smith, and Headland, to mention a few. The Sophomore girls distinguished themselves in the Annual Talent Show and in the operetta "Martha." The Sophomore class gave one very successful dance this year under the able direction of Social Chairman Margaret Howell and President Hendricks. Looking ahead to next year, another dance was given to raise funds for the Junior-Senior. Also the class turned out one hundred per cent for the Red Cross drive and lent its generous support to the weekly Stamp and Bond sales. Certainly, the tenth grade willingly took its share in school activities.

In Rehearsal This year the Freshmen were led by Billy Schrink during the first semester and Bobby Liles in the second. The class advisors have been Miss Willows and Mr. Booth. The year's social life started in December when the first party was held during vacation which was something different. In March a party, planned by the parents, was given at the Wo­ man's Club. After a pot-luck supper parents and offspring participated in a varied pragram, the elders giving a very amus­ ing scene in a country school room. Because the class as a whole was sports minded, they strengthened both boys' and girls' teams during the year. The Frosh started the Red Cross drive with their usual enthusiasm and had a 100 per cent by the second day of the drive. All in all the Freshmen feel that this has been a good year.

Casting This year's eighth grade has done its part to up­ hold the dignity of the Junior High School. Spurred on by loyalty to the school and by hopes of future victories over football opponents, a large percentage of the class showed up for the games. The most outstanding achievement of the class was the play, "Why the Chimes Rang," given by the o:i.g:�!"lh grade for the High School Christmas pro­ gram. Led by Bill Wade for the first semester and John Cullers for the second the class has shown loyalty and cooperation in the various activities and drives spor..Gored by the school. Having tasted of High School life, the class of '49 waits impatiently for its real initiation into C.H.S. [ 18 J

Tryouts At the beginning of the school year, the Seventh graders were a very bewildered lot. But after being enrolled and finally established with the help of upper classmen, they felt more c;it home. An initi­ ation by the Eighth grade followed, but all came out without battle scars. Gaylord Cummins led the class successfully through the first semester with Francis Eaton taking over for the second semester. With the help of class advisors, Mrs. McClellan and Mr. Heath, a very entertaining party was held the first semester and at Christmas-time a tea was given for the mothers. Thus the year proved to be a full and successful one and the class eagerly looks forward to becom­ ing members of the eighth grade next year.

Teachers Offers Ti1ne to Outside What would we do without MISS KROUCH? Her wonderful ability to inspire her pupils to work, and the beautiful and expressive hands, both have created many a program which has warmly rewarded her perseverance with cheern! Capable, hard working MRS. HOWE, always produces a fine or­ chestra from the talent available, also successfully plans assembly programs and directs the newly formed popular orchestra. MISS WILLOWS, who has propelled many a hesitant sophomore through the escapades of Julius Caesar and many an uncertain freshman through ninth grade English, will always be rerembered and loved in the annals of Claremont High School."COACH" MARTIN, amiable director of football and track teams and discoverer of sev­ eral Claremont stars, also had the job of making history live for the students. His work as Annual advisor was invaluable. MISS SPRAGUE, new to the fac­ ulty this year, had the job of teaching English to the seventh and eighth grade students. During play rehearsals and play nights, she earned everyone's thanks by skillfully making up actors and actresses. MR. WOOD, efficient Vice Principal and business manager, also managed to fill his day teaching typing, mechanical drawing, and Many are the things that could not have been done without his assista�ce.

r\ctivities· Besides Their Guidance MRS. HULL, distinguished Senior High English teacher, brought to her students a better understanding and knowledge of many fields. She directed all the plays which were received so very successfully, and earned the stu­ dents' gratitude, lending many a helping hand. Teaching both Social Sci­ ence and gym classes kept MR. HEATH busy. He helped immensely in build­ ing a good spirit in the teams, so well in keeping with his sense of fairness and hard play. MRS. HODGES, who joined the faculty the second semester, quickly took over the teaching of English to seventh and eighth grade stud­ ents. MRS. McLELLAN'S patience, leadership, and ability have made her classes a clearing house for ideas and activities. Some of the projects accom­ plished this year were the sets, costuming and designs for the different school productions. MISS COLBATH, popular gym teacher and G.A�A. director, brought to the girls a better understanding of their games, and worked hard for a real showing of ::;portsmanship and fair play. Under her guidance also, girls were given a taste of modern dancing. MRS. MAHONEY went beyond her job as librarian to cheerfully help s tudents locate much sought for ma­ terial and answer endless questions. Also her efforts as Wolf Pack advisor were greatly appreciated by the staff. C 21 l

In The Classroom


Mrs. Fitts Mr. Arrington Miss Escudero

l 22 J

Mrs. Williams Mr. Booth Miss Henricus

MRS. FITTS not only tried to help students to a better under足 standing of the intricacies of mathematics, but also served as head of the Scholarship Society. MRS. WILLIAMS not only teach足 es biology and home economics, but also efficiently manages ice cream sales and heads the Junior Red Cross. As advisor to the Junior Class she did much to make this year a success. MR. ARRINGTON saw not only to the students' scientific education, but also energetically managed the Red Cross Lunch Counter and ticket sales. In many. other capacities he was cheerfully of much help. While MR. BOO1'H taught students the complexities of mathematics, he also gave them many interesting side足 lights. He good-naturedly found time to direct the stage crews' amazing results and showed his patience while taking the an足 nual pictures. MISS ESCUDERO, serving as Spanish teacher, has done much to bring her students to a better understanding of their southern neighbors by methods such as the Spanish Club, parties and dinners. MISS HENRICUS capably performed her job as school nurse. Not only was she always on hand at time of need but she found time also to serve as school attendance keeper.

MISS BULLARD, an office sec­ retary during the first semester, devoted her cheery personality to raising student spirits. Always on her face was a bright smile for her many friends and on her lips a request for back locker­ key rentals. Many years of ex­ perience have helped to make MRS. BECK one of those indis­ pensable people in our school. Her official job as secretary placed her in a position to be of invaluable assistance no matter how small a student's needs. MRS. DUFFY, after having spent most of the day at the element­ ary school, willingly does double duty by working after school. Taking up a difficult job in the middle of the year, MISS HOPPE calmly carried on in the office. WILFORD MICHAEL, commonly known as "Pete," OTTO RALEY, and HIRAM RILEY proved them­ selves indispensable to C.H.S. Though probably they will al­ ways be remembered best as driving buses that was only part of their job. Their invaluable work on the grounds has made many a passer�by remark on the yard's beauty. Truly we have much for which to thank these three men. Guarding of the school supplies and busy cor­ ridors was the job of amiable MR. GETTMAN. Everyone knew him; everyone liked him. He's the inan who did those countless jobs that are always so ess9ntio.:l.

Principal Encourages Preparation for the Future


Lincoln said: "I will study and get ready, and some day my chance will come." Regardless of obstacles and hardships galore, Lincoln was ready. In our expanding and complicated world, adequate prepara­ tion is an essential for happy successful living. Records in indus­ try, a well as in the war services, conclusively prove the value of physical, mental and moral fitness. Personality factors, sportsmanship and citizenship qualities are also fundamentals. Employers in one plant found forty per cent of those discharged were unable to get along well with co-workers or supervising officials. Winners do not offer excuses or blame others for their failures-they realize that hope for im­ provement rests within themselves. I cannot urge too strongly that you set your ideals high and strive day by day to reach the goals that challenge your best efforts. Sincerely, EARL THOMPSON Principal

Leaders of Today and To1norro-w B. Birkel

This past year has been a full one as far as scnool activities go. So many things have been added to the school calendar of events by the war that it was a task keeping up with them. Without the new events, however, I think many of the students would have been lost for something to do. The old clothes and waste paper collections, food sales, and Stamp and Bond drives gave us a chance to help in the war effort and enabled us to work with the faculty, especially at the Red Cross Booth. These war time activities, along with the regular interests, were brought -to­ gether in keeping active the Claremont High School student body, a student body in which I was proud to hold office.

Led by capable President Bill Birkel, the Student Council triumphed over the many puzzling problems which it faced during the year. Chief among these was the all-important lack of order in the halls and on the grounds. Offenders were disciplined by the two courts while the Student Council planned campaigns for quieter, better-behaved halls. When the rainy season came, noon dances were held in the upstairs hall for diversion. The Council put on three successful paper drives during the year. They also gave whole-hearted support to the thriving Red Cross booth. Early in the year, work was begun to bring the Constitution up to date. of the proposed amendments werepassed by the Student Body. With the All adoption of the amendments, two more officers joined the Council's ranks­ the president of the Lettermen's Club and the president of the Girls' Athletic Association. The president and one representative from both the seventh and the eighth grades also became non-voting members. In the second semester the Council sponsored a Bond contest among the classes. After considering the condition of the American flags that are displayed in the classrooms, the flags were ordered cleaned or replaced. When the Student Council adjourned it left behind a highly successful year.

Our Junior Red Cross has this year iunctio::1ed more efficiently than in any of the past years. The students realir:ed, with the help of the ever-ener­ getic faculty representatives, the neces3ity of supporting the Red Cross during the troubled year of war. Early in the year the class representatives had on their lips the eternal question, "Did you bring your Red Cross money?" Their efforts were gener­ ously rewarded when the student body and faculty responded with 100 per cent membership. From this subscrip�ion came the cash gifts to Casa Colina, the Children's Home Finding Societ y, and a special gift for the National Children's Fund. Mr. Arrington organized a much-needed food booth which he ran with the help of the students. Starting with apples in the fall, they added different odds and ends until a few mothers donated their "masterpieces" to the booth. All of the profits of course went to the Red Cross. Many of the girls in the school were carrying bright-colored balls of yarn which soon turned into knitted squares and then into afghans for the Red Cross. With Mrs. Williams' guidance members of the sewing class contrib­ uted many useful articles. In April a Red Cross Fair was presented by the high school. It proved a grand s__uccess, enlarging the Red Cross fund by quite a sum. [ 26]

N9ew Tactics Prove Profitable [ 27 ]

War Front: "Soldiers-In -Grease-Paint" Tour Pacific Ho xn e F ro n t: Football Dances, Plays, Inter­ fere �ith Hoxne�ork. When a man goes off to war he is put through certain proces­ sing and training which to him seems at the time unimportant. Later he thanks God for the opportunity he has had to learn, and wishes he had listened more attentively. The art of modern fight­ ing is complicated beyond words. Each separate item has its vital use and the fighting man must know each of them. Aside from learning his job, his whole psychology must change so that he can stand the sights and sounds of war. His body must be inoculated against the deadly, invisible foes all about him. His health and his mind are protected to the greatest possible extent. The "soldiers-in-grease-paint" of this country have not set out to fight or even to learn how. They tip their hats to the serious­ ness of life near the front and make their way, unarmed and un­ prepared near the very valley of death. The equipment of the entertainer for a tour of the battle fronts is abbreviated and simple-his talent and good will. His only protection lies in a few inoculations and a helmet. Many times the planned enter­ tainment is of lesser importance when even more informal group­ ings are concerned. Often the entertainers stand around and taik with the soldier or exchange jokes with the sailor at mess. This more personal contact with home and country brings a lift to the man under the strain of war. Unlike the fighting man, an entertainer is not told what to do or when to do it. Army and Navy transportation is used to deliver them all over the world. These show-men clo not know what they will face from day ·io day. The test is hard. Many have passed it with flying colors and many others follow in their footsteps.

ralks By C.H. S. Graduates Announcements

Motion Pictures,


The assemblies this year were as usual both entertaining and copstructive. The students sighed enviously as they watched Don Budge, both actor and narrator of the film, make tennis seem very easy. In "South of the Border," Walt Disney and his troup were shown gathering material for Disney's South American pictures. Two other pictures shown concerned the United States Army Air Corps-one being a film on officers' training, the other on plane spotting. It is always interesting to hear from C.H.S. graduates who are in the arme.d forces. A few were here for assembly programs, such as Earle Jones, who went into the navy, Major Kathryn Johnson, and Hubert Sprinkle, who had recently returned home from overseas. Lieut. M. Jones, who formerly had a practice in Claremnot, related his experience from naval duty overseas. Dr. Britt spoke for Thanksgiving on a patriotic theme. For the Christ­ mas assembly the Eighth grade in cooperation with the music department gave a very beautiful presentation of "Why the Chimes Rang." For some of the other programs, skits were given to arouse interest in the plays, the operetta, the Annual, and the Wolf Packet. But the outstanding assembly of the year was an extremely thought-provoking talk by Dr. Nelson. An unusually beautiful assembly was given in honor of President Roosevelt the day after his death. And as usual the Senior Assembly brought the school year to a close.

Opera Stars In The Making When the Girls' Sextette went into action, it really started with a bang. The girls spent their first weeks getting used to singing together, practicing and mem­ orizing. They made their first appearance for "Spring Green." The Sextette then became very popular. There was little time to work, but good results were ob­ tained under Miss Krouch's ex­ cellent direction.

It is hard to separate the Sex- · tette and the Ensemble. The Sextette was rather small for large auditoriums, so six more girls were added to the group, making the Ensemble. Each group practiced two days a week, racing to keep ahead of appointments. The two groups shared honors before Rotary the Prom, Talent Show, Kiwanis, Lions, P.E.O., Kapiolani, Wo­ man's Club, and others. But these girls, besides working hard, found their fun in the mu­ sic and companionship. [ 36]

This year we again bow to Miss Krouch for what she has done with the girls' chorus. Wherever they went the girls were well received. They sang at clubs in Pomona such as the Lions and Rotary. They gave an assembly program that everyone en­ joyed and that is quite a record. The Ensemble gave a program of religious songs in Santa Ana which they repeated in our assembly in memory of Presi­ dent Roosevelt. The Sextette has sung at plays and has given special num­ bers at the various clubs the chorus has sung for. Perhaps the most exciting event for the chorus this year was the giving of "Martha." Noon periods were sacrificed by teachers and students alike. The sewing classes devoted their time and energy to the making of costumes for the chorus girls. The last week was the worst one with the dress rehearsal and two performances. Almost everyone went crazy from trying to remember what to bring to rehearsal, but all survived. Marylou Miller, Gretchen Bruner, Betty McCullough, Joyce Reeves and Ruth Wheeler were all wonderful, and it certainly was fun to do. After our last performance the chorus went to Joyce Reeves, where we had refreshments. There we had a wonderful time, sitting on the floor, eating and singing. At Christmas the chorus, with the eighth grade and orchestra, gave the play, "Why the Chimes Rang." The orchestra played the processional, and then the play began. The whole program was beautiful and the chorus sang well. •

Orchestra Develops Talented Students The orchestra, under the able direction of Mrs. Howe, has played a large part in the musical events of the past year. As usual, it gave its fine support to the plays and the Christmas Program. In May the full orchestra presented a most interesting and suc­ cessful orchestra program with the help of the En­ semble. However, the biggest event of the year for the orchestra was the operetta, "Martha," for which it played the overture and contributed a string quar­ tet to accompany the entire performance. The members of the orchestra were proud that two of their group were able to go to Santa Barbara to play in the Southern California High School Or­ chestra. To complete a busy, successful year it played the opening numbers for the graduation ex­ ercises.

·The, Oh So Few I Though little is known about the Scholarship So­ ciety it is still in existence. This year Mrs. Fitts was advisor to the group which is a Chapter of the Cali­ fornia Scholarship Federation. Because of trans­ portation difficulties the organization has had little opportunity to visit points of interest during recent years. However, the members sincerely hope that next year the Scholarship Society will be able to be­ come a more active organization.

Led by Gretchen Bruner, President; Virginia White, Vice-Presi­ dent and Social Chairman; Audrey Tuttle, Treasurer; Virginia Baber, Secretary; and Miss Willows, Advisor; the Girls' League had a very successful year. Monthly meetings were held to hear an interesting speaker, or to share some other program which proved to be very educa­ tional. The outstanding meeting of the year was the Fall Fashion Show and Tea which Mary Ellen's Shop sponsored. Models were members of the League, and all mothers and younger girls were welcomed. This meeting illustrated the League's feeling of friend­ liness and cooperation, in that the efforts of many hands went to make it a big success. Other meetings were the Big and Little Sister party at the beginning of the year, a view of dramatics from Mrs. Allen of Pomona College, talks by Genevieve Mertzke and Ruth Cooke-C.H.S. alumni--on college life, a talk on India by Mrs. Bruner, some Mexican dances by Pat McCaan, of Scripps, and a program of modern dance by the Juniors and Seniors for the enjoyment of their mothers. Aside from these programs the Girls' League sold ice cream for a small profit, gave Casa Colina $50, and brightened up the stndy hall with flowers when they were obtainable.

Pra.ctice Makes Perfect Each year there seems to be an increasing interest in the study of Spanish. Because of our closer cooperation with neigh­ boring countries, a good working knowledge of Spanish might someday prove to be very helpful to many of us. To supplement regular classes for those who were interested, C.H.S. had two first year Spanish Clubs and one second year Club. The first year Sec. I was led by President Michael Aleshire, Sec. II by President Phyllis Paige. The president of Hie second year Spanish Club was Janet Campbell. All Spanish activities of the school year were under the direct supervision of Miss Es­ cudero. The three clubs met separately many times during the year at the homes of various members. They also planned many activ­ ities together such as the Christmas party and Pinata, a spring dance, a Spanish supper, and a picnic. Many times when they got excited the hesitant Spanish was forgotten and the English language held supreme until a reminder was given and then there was a forfeit to pay! Separately and together they did much to further an interest in Spanish.

Ink Splashers V. White. M. Wilson

This year the Wolf Packet had two editors, Marian Wilson the first semester, and Virginia White the second. The members of the staff have done a lot of hard work and also have had a very good time putting out the paper. It's not the smooth-going task that some people consider it to be. It includes the necessity of having mechanical ingenuity, patience, tact, and that certain something that enables you to make something out of nothing. All of these traits must be had by all members. So you see, it is a quite an achievement. Then to top it all is the necessity for snappy writers. But obstacle number one is the mimeograph . machine. With bolts missing, fasteners bent, kept together with tape and elbow grease, the old machine still manages to turn out its quota of Wolf Packets. Thirty

Never An Idle Moment C. Hildabrand. S. Barnes, J. Spencer

Much was done during the year to keep the name of -the Annual, "El Espiritu," before the students. To start the drive to sell Annuals an assembly was planned in which a short skit showed the future value of an Annual as a means of recalling past experiences and fun. Thus the regular l\.nnual sales week was begun, the week in which the majority of the students bought their Annuals at a slightly reduced price. A short while later the Annual presented the Talent Show, a yearly affair in which as much talent as possible is presented. This year an original show was offered in which there were over seventy students in the cast and staff. Later in the year there was the usual "to do" about complet­ ing payments on the Annual and everything possible was done to find out those who had not yea purchased their Annual. An a sidelight, the Annual sponsored four dances throughout the year. They were held not only for fun, but also to raise money for advertising purposes. It is sincerely hoped by the staff of "El Espiritu de 1945" that you rca.clbg it as much as they did producing it.

The stage crew, though never in the spotlight, made possible the success of the plays given this year. Working in cooperation with the Art Department, they produced some really fine sets. These sets called for much hard work and a lot of ingenuity. The stage crew under the direction of Mr. Booth proved that they were able to handle these tough assignments successfully. Though little known, they were always on the job!

Wearers of the "C" R. Wheeler

Under the capable leadership of Roger (Rod) Wheeler as president, and Basil Binckley, as vice-president and secretary, the club had a prosperous year as interest in athletics rose. At the start of the year the club had a small membership, but by the end of Basketball season there were over twenty members. A dance, given in March with the theme of "Maroon and Coca Cola," was a great success. The soft lights and palm leaf decorations added a tropical touch. New members were initiated to the delight of the old and hardened members who had taken their beatings in previous years. The beach trip was a great success to all, as many hours were spent on the sand during the day and at the Rendezvous t night. The sunburned Lettermen returned home quite reluctant about returning to classes. In May the Carnival was held with many tiring hours of toil being spne in preparing for the big evening. As usual the raffle was held which kept many anxious people in suspense. The evening was concluded with a dance held in the Girls' Gym.

The Wolfpack started the 1944 football season off with a bang, smashing a powerless California Junior Republic team 31-0. Republic was just unable to cope with the speed and drive of Claremont's new T­ formation. Sabichi, Captain Colbath, and Wheeler, the three Claremont ball-packers, ripped off one long gain after another before the startled op­ ponents could get set. Five touchdowns were the result of the attack.

Meeting their first Tri-County opposition of the season, the Hillers barely nosed out a determined Citrus eleven in a bitterly fought seesaw battle. The first half was uneventful. Both sides were a little bit green to try tricky plays. Shortly after the second half began, Citrus went ahead 6-0 to give Clare­ mont its first real score. Early in the fourth quarter though, Colbath sparked the Wolfpack on its only tonly touchdown drive, charging over for the counter from the twelve yard line and then passing to Dyer for the conversion. The game ended with Claremont holding its.7-6 lead.

The T-formation clicked again for the Wolves as they ran wild over Puente 27-0, in their third consecutive victory of the season. Wasting no time after the kickoff, left half, Roger Wheeler, went the last 20 yards of a 70-yard drive for a touchdown on a quick-opening play off tackle. Wheeler scored again later in the game as did Colbath. Speedy back, Francisco Sabichi, provided the thrill of the day though, when, in the fourth quarter, he inter­ cepted a Warrior pass, and ran fifty yards past the last Puente defender for a touchdown. The Wolves extended their string of victories to four by de­ feating a strong Corona eleven 7-0. The Panthers and Wolfpack lines battled to a standstill in the first half and neither side was able to score. Finally, in the second half, Claremont unleashed all the power that it had apparently held in check for two quarters and started moving. One Wolfpack drive was stopped on the Corona twelve yard line, but minutes later in the fourth quarter, Wheeler and Colbath carried the ball from the 35 to the yard line from where Birkel punched it over on a quarter back sneak. A conversion pass from Colbath to Depew was good and Clare­ mont had emerged victorious for the fourth straight time. [ 48)

Claremont suffered her first defeat of the season when a strong Bonita eleven battered their way to a three touchdown victory on the Wolfpack home turf. The strength of the Bearcat line was the main factor in our defeat-Claremont's secondary defense was strong and stopped many a drive toward our goal. The first half of the game saw Bonita march over twice to lead 14-0 at the half. Claremont made her only touchdown of the game in ·the third quarter, when Colbath recovered a Bonita fumble, made a first down and then passed to Birkel who crossed the goal line on a play good for eighteen yards. A hard fought second half kept down the margin of defeat.

The Chino boys proved to be the best all-weather players when they came out on top 6-0 over the Wolves on the Chino gridiron. It was a muddy, rain-swept field and proved a handi­ cap to our speedy backs. Claremont's only scoring threat was in the early period when they were within two yards of a touch­ down. Colbath broke loose for a forty-five yard run in a third quarter drive. Chino's only tally was in the second period when a pass play was good for forty yards and a touchdown.

On our final game of the season the Webb Gauls, our tra­ ditional rivals, held Claremont to a scoreless tie. Claremont's drives to the Webb goal line were repeatedly stopped. The Wolves were within the Webb twenty yard line five times but to no avail. Captain Colbath's long runs aided greatly in Clare­ mont's drives.

The Claremont 'X' team played only two teams during their football season, two against Fremont and two against Webb, losing all four of the games. The 'X' team was easily defeated in their first game by Fremont Junior High 33-0. But in the second game it was much closer with Claremont even leading for a while 7-0 with a pass from Smith to Headland, but Fremont went ahead to win 28-12. Reid of Clare­ mont made Claremont's second touchdown on a sixteen yard end run. Both games the 'X' played against Webb were very close and exciting with Webb winning the first game by a 7-6 ·score. A pass by Smith to Reid pro­ duced the Claremont touchdown. In the second game Webb eked out a 6-0 score over the Clare­ mont 'X' team. The Claremont 'X' team threatened, but could not materialize a score.

Teain Attracts Enthusiastic Cro-wd For the first time in three years the Wolfpack is fielding a baseball team which gives promise of be­ ing a pretty fair team. This year's team is being built around Charles Starcher, a transfer pitcher from Santa Monica High School. The infield has rounded into good shape with Starcher's battery mate Rathburn, Mason at first, Johnson at second, Headland at third, Eakin at shortstop, Burke in left field, Liles in center field, and Smith in right field. In its first baseball game in three years, which was a practice tilt with the Pomona High School Juniar Varsity team, the game ended in a 1-1 tie. Inexperi­ enced Claremont looked pretty fair. The Wolfpack will have five league games plus a couple of prac­ tice games this season. In the first league game of the season with Citrus, Claremont came up on the long end of a 7-6 score to win its first Tri-County League game. The game was highlighted by Starcher's ten-hit pitching, he also sent seventeen men down swinging, and Johnson's triple and double.

Wolves Strive·

The Wolfpack varsity basketball team had a fairly successful season although winning only two games. Not more than ten or fifteen points separated the Wolfpack team and its opponents in all except one game. The lack of substitutes was often the de­ ciding factor in Claremont's losses. The Wolves would some­ times lead in the third quarter but because of lack of extra play­ ers would be at the short end of the score at the end of the game. Despite this, the Wolfpack almost jumbled the whole order of Tri­ County league standings when they surprised the undefeated Corona team, coming within two points of defeating them. The Wolfpack lost several heartbreakers losing to Chino 16-15 when the Cow boys made a winning goal in the last 10 seconds of play. Victory was again snatched away from the Wolfpack team when Puente came from behind in the last three minutes of play to win 24-22. Webb had to go into three over-times before they defeated Claremont 47-45. The Wolfpack did manage to win two thrillers from the Citrus Cougars 17-14 and 29-26. The high scorer of the team proved to be Don Eakin with 78 points for the season.

The Bee basketball team, though winning only one game, a practice game against the Chino C team, fought doggedly through its whole season. During the first half of the Bee team's season the boys were easily defeated by all their opponents. But with the start of the last game the team came to life and even though losing the rest of its games, except for the one practice game with the Chino Cee's, it managed to hold its opponents to much closer scores. Puente was barely able to snatch victory away from the Claremont Bee's 24-22 in the last minutes of a heartbreaker. Freshman boys received valuable experience for next year.

The Claremont track season highlighted by coming in second in the Tri-County League Meet. The Wolfpack started the season off minus Francisco Sabichi, the Tri-County sprint champ, and star hurdler George Colbath, who have gone to college and the air corps respectively. The Wolfpack easily won their first meet swamping the Chino Cowboys. From here on the Wolfpack con­ tinued to a highly successful track season. Outstanding perform­ ance of the season were a 53.6 sec. 440 and 20'10½" broadjump by Roger Wheeler, a 23 sec. 220 by Bill Depew. Bill Birkel's 2:06.2 set a new school record for the 880, Jim Spencer's 4:53 mile, and a 5 8" high jump leap by Gale Reid. High point man of the season was Roger Wheeler, who scored 49 points in four meets. The year was climaxed with Claremont scoring 33¾ points in Tri-County League meet, placing second to Bonita who had 41 ½ points. Eleven boys entered the League meet with ten boys winning 17 medals. Claremont boys placed in all events except the 100 yard dash.

In the next dual meet the 'X' team was soundly defeated by Bonita. In the Bonita In­ vitational the Wolfpack lightweights placed thircl, behind Po­ mona and Bonita, and the the Tri-County placed last with 4½ points. In the Tri-County meet, Starcher placed fifth in the 1320, Carrall fourth in the 660, Burke tied for second in the high jump, and the lightweight relay team of Licon, Miller, Burke and Liles, placed fourth.

,, I Sentence You To-'' The Student Courts functioned again this year after their in­ augural last year. What are they? They are two organizations, one for the girls and the other for the boys, which have the same purpose, to penalize offenders of the school regulations. The Girls' Court, led by the G.A.A. president is made up of the G.A.A. members who have a minimum of one thousand points. This year there were eleven members. Penalties consisted of washing windows, checking showers and doing other odd jobs about the girls' gym. The Boys' Court is made up of six Lettermen plus their presi­ dent. Penalties consist of one hour of work on the track after school, the length of time increasing with the number of offenses. These courts are a practical way for the members to demon­ strate their ability in democratic student government.

Leaders In Sportsmanship R. Wheeler

The G.A.A. with its officers already elected got off to a "jack rabbit" start. There was a grand turn-out for basketball and for the playday at Citrus which culminated the season. On one very hot Wednesday afternoon, Claremont went to Chino for a speedball playday. Hockey playday, however, was fated to be called off because of rainy weather. Claremont, anxious to prove her power, invited Chino to compete with her and came out victorious. With warm weather, baseball playday was held at Bonita. As usual the Sophs gave the Freshmen a gala, never to be forgotten initiation. But the big event of the year was the G.A.A. Banquet held in the latter part of May. During the course of the evening, various awards were made which consisted of letters, pins, and the G.A.A. cup. The happy recipients beamed proudly, and everyone agreed that they had a very happy and worthwhile year.

Season Successful Despite Sprained Fingers The first of the year saw the girls faithfully playing basketball two afternoons a week. After several months of practice, during which the girls developed both skill in guarding and accuracy in shooting for baskets, the interclass games took place. The Juniors came out the champions. As guests of Citrus at the Tri-County League playday, our Juniors and Freshmen came home winners and the Sophomores played a tie game. Although the Seniors lost, they showed fine sportsmanship and everyone considered it a victorious season.

Girl's Prove Themselves Noteworthy Athletes After basketball, the girls turned enthusiastically to speedball. The rules were relearned and team cooperation was stressed. Although several of us had sprained toes and corked fingers, everyone played vigorously and had fun. Again the Juniors ran off with the interclass championship. Playday was held at Chino on one of the first warm days in February. All of the teams ex­ cept the Juniors were defeated but nevertheless showed team work and skill. The younger teams give bright hope for future years.

Exciting Playday Brings Seaso·ll To Close With bruised shins and aching toes, Hockey came to an end. The League Play Day at Corona was called off twice because the weather man didn't favor us with dry fields. However, Claremont G.A.A. played host to Chino. We scored high with three tie games and one game won by the Sophomores. 'Ray for them! The Juniors triumphed again in interclass games with the Seniors· close behind. The Sopho­ mores became known for their hard hitters, while the Freshmen showed that they had the makings of a fine future team. Keep it up!

Every Monday after school a determined bunch of girls has been practicing backhands and volleys, lobs and serves. At first the uncooperative balls in­ variably went either over the fences or under the nets. But under Miss Colbath's able coaching great improvement has been shown. Toward the latter part of the year the team played batches with Bon­ ita, Corona, Chino.

Dances · have turned into specialties-better and better dances and more and more of them. New ideas were introduced on September 30 at the Annual Dance. In November the Seniors did the evening honors in the Library. Soon the Juniors gave one of the few Friday night dances of the year. It followed the last game of the season and really showed how everyone appreci­ ate! the team's victories. December, being a gay month, as usual stole the show with the social high spot of the year for upper-classmen. At the be­ ginning of the month, the fellows showed their great liking for both football and women at the Football Banquet. The Lettermen waited until later in the year for their dance but, being kind and thoughtful, the Sophs gave a dance affording the athletes and their girls a full evening. Soon to follow was the Junior-Senior Reception-early again for the fellows who were leaving. On the sixteenth the Juniors and Seniors, Parents and Faculty went to Upland for a delightful evening among attractive holiday surroundings. While the girls smiled coyly, our men made the rounds hunting for "Number Four." Yes, the only formal of the year was a program dance. A novel band, interrupted only for refreshments and a welcoming speech, furnished well liked music. The Spanish Club gave their yearly party as well as did many other classes. Especially unique was the dinner held for the Juniors by their parents at the Women's Club. After the pro­ gram, those who were able tried their skill at square dancing. With spring there came another Annual Dance and, to raise funds for a very worthy cause, an unusual Indoor Fair was held by the Red Cross Council. Yes, novel ideas really hit their peak when ping pong took over the sewing room.

"Spring Green" Jumbo and Salome-fish? people? dogs?-o, just earth­ worms. These two worms and a bottle of perfume were, in a sense, the stars of the Student Body play, "Spring Green," given early in December. The plot centered around the problems and trials of a typical high school's lads and lasses. Pretty, gay, Tony Cassel (Kathy Potter) and her friend Pinky Ames (Dee Scott) were interested in dates, especially with the neighborhood Romeo, Dunk Doyle (Bill Birkel). Mrs. Cassel (Ruth Wheeler) was interested in Major Todd (Jim Spencer) a childhood sweetheart who was rooming at the Cassel's home. His eccentric son Newton (Dick Spencer) was interested only in earthworms. Pesky little sister Scootie (Mary­ lou Miller) was interested in collecting scrap and Grandfather (Wesley Heflin) was interested in preventing her from taking needed equipment. Mrs. Rumble (Gretchen Bruner) was inter­ ested in keeping her sanity while Dr. Blodget (Jim Whitney) was interested in Newton's experiments. Bing Hotchkiss (Roger Wheeler) was interested in Pinky and food, while his twin sister, the beauteous Eula (Virginia White) proved interesting to every­ one-especially the boys. It should he evident by now it was a most interesting play. Mrs. Hull's direction, Mr. Booth's stage work, and the co-opera­ tion of all made it a real success! [ 65 ]

Talent Show San Diego, San Francisco, San �ntonio, El Paso, Flatbush, these violent words were spoken by the beautiful Carmen Ver­ anda (Wesley Heflin) alias an F.B.I. agent. A German spy (Carl Hildabrand), two flutterbrained girls (Marian Wilson and Fronsa Thayer), two girls on one ticket (Peg and Pat Morgan) the ship's crew (Jim Spencer, Lewis Burke and Jim Palmer), Professor lchthyus (Jim Whitney), and many enter­ tainers invited the audience to join them on a South American cruise on the good ship "El Espiritu." The show which was sponsored by the Annual, helped finance that worthy publication. Two bands, the Girls' Ensemble and Sextette, singers, musicians and dances, which ranged from Sambas to a Floradora, provided the much-appreciated enter­ tainment. [ 66]

In March the girls' chorus, with enthusiasm to spare, under­ took and successfully produced an operetta-the first in several years. Lack of male voices was a drawback, but a special ar­ rangement of "Martha" by von F1oytow proved to be the answer. The story concerned a lovely lady, Marylou Miller, and her friend, Betty McCullough, who, tired of a life of luxury and es­ pecially of an ardent but elderly suitor, Ruth Wheeler, went in search of adventure. Complications arose when two wealthy farmers, Gretchen Bruner and Joyce Reeves, hired them as sew­ ing maids and the sheriff, Carolyn Upham, declared the bargain legally binding. A happy conclusion came after such well-known numbers as "The Last Rose of Summer" and "Ah, When She Rose." Credit is due first to Miss Krouch who worked long and hard. The orchestra, a string quartet, art classes, sewing classes, stage crew and faculty all gave much assistance in making the produc­ tion a success.

Somewhere far off a singer who daily thrills millions with his songs, closes his eyes as the show starts. Thoughts of gilded the­ aters and perfumed ladies run through his mind. His first per­ formance before the public lingers for a moment in his memory. Then the fanfare and applause cease and he must start another show. He opens his eyes to the strange sight that has now be­ come so familiar. Hundreds of men, dressed in mud-caked clothes, unshaven, and stretched out on logs or rocks, listen with the jungle. A searchlight illumines the box used for a stage, and over the not too distant hills the deadly machine gun chatter punctuates the lives of many men. The same guitar that was used for the fanfare starts a foot here and there tapping. Most of the faces are expressionless from the thoughts of what they have seen. Those that do show a little interest seem skeptical of the ability of this stranger to block­ out their surroundings and take them home. The songs and patter start to batter their way through the wall separating them from the objective of their thoughts and continuing with renewed force strike home. Each addition to the program reaches a little farther into the men's hearts and the singer, who at first is some­ what embarrassed at the lack of enthusiasm, gains confidence at each upturned, smiling face. Soon the men are walking down the street of a home town with their family and friends. The show somes to an end and the singer must move on. He can leave, knowing that his assignment has been successfully completed. A handful of men and women have bridged the gap of the front line and the home front.

To New Horizons SENIOR CLASS-1945 Forward we go-Yesterday-Young, bewildered sevcnth­ graders; Today-High School graduates; Tomorrow-Citize::m o� the World. How the years have flown by. What stores of knowledge have unfolded for us. How many priceless experiences we have had. What good friends we have made. Several of our members have been called into the service. Many of us will go to the war directly after graduation. Others will take further training to pre­ pare for another hard fight-that of winning the peace. Our High School career has been a good one, and this year is a fitting close. Seniors have carried on many varied activities. Talent has been brought out in Dramatics, Music, Art and Sports. The Scholarship Society has a good representation from our class, and, although education is our main objective here, we have had wonderful social times too! The Jr.-Sr. Prom, ditchday, dances, and final graduation parties are events we shall never forget. Claremont you have been good to us-we shall try to make you proud of us. Good-bye-Class of 1945

Coveted Awards One event each year to which all the students look forward is the Senior Assembly. At this time the awards are announced. The Lettermen are given the letters they have earned during the year and athletic blankets are presented to the boys who have contributed the most to the school and their team. ¡Four other awards are made at this time to the outstanding boys and girls in the senior class, on the basis of sportsmanship and scholarship and signify that the students who receive them have excelled in all phases of theer school life. These are the highest awards a student at Claremont can receive. The students themselves select the winners of the D.A.R., the Rotary, and the Kiwanis awards. A fourth award was originated and presented last year by Mrs. Gleason. This is a cup which goes to the G.A.A. member of the senior class having the highest number of points. Elizabeth Colbath was the first to receive :it. The D.A.R. award was presented to Mary Stafford. Elizabeth Colbath received the Rotary trophy. The Kiwanis Cup went -to Tommy Wiggins. No one was really surprised for they received their just rewards.

Pliers of the Golden Pen It Happened On Bataan The sultry ev'ning sun dips its way toward the sea, Struggles vainly to remain, and sinks away from sight. The playful twilight breeze ruffles ev'ry tree, Stops to greet the hov'ring dark, and continues on its flight. The birds fly down as if in some great rush, To seek a place of rest at the end of day. A deer comes crashing through the dark'ning brush, Pauses to sniffle at the air, and wanders on its way. Scant notice comes from grasses in the glades As the day withdraws its last surviving rays of light. The night creeps in on feet of dark'ning shades, As soon there is none but the solemn quiet. Hark! For through the forest trails there seems to pound The rumble of the cannon dueling from afar. And over this comes the silvery sound Of taps that slowly fades away with the ev'ning star. The limbs of ev'ry tree begin to shake As the clamor of the distant fray rocks their roots. Soon the ground beneath them starts to quake, And through the night comes the trudge of boots. The spectre of a once proud force drags by, The beaten men go struggling on, laden down with shame. There comes from 'neath the burden of defeat a sigh, As they stumble off in search of help that never came. All at once the night begins anew with fear to shake At the sight which from across the distant hills comes to view. There gathers a group of mad-men such as none has tried to make, For through the gates of Hell march the sons of Honshu. 0ne by one the beaten men are left behind To enjoy the peace of death that has been theirs to take. Those that now remain are sure that they will find Freedom from the fiends surrounding them when their dawns break.

[ 82 J

The torturous devils now released Fall upon their prey with gleaming eyes. · The gory sight is as if some ferocious beast Had been let loose to fight as ev'ry human man defies. The awful night has length'ned out, And timid rays of light will soon begin to flow. The torn and beaten men are lying all about, And with the parting night the yellow devils go. The grayish mist rolls out and o'er the playful sea. The golden sun leaps up, the bounding dawn is far ahead. The forest comes to life awond'ring how this thing can be, For high above the trees a spirit stands among the dead. One by one he raises up his battered hands. He raises up his hand to offer thanks to God For merciful release from ever tight'ning bands, And from the bodies lying limp upon the sod. He turns to rest upon the bloody river banks. He sees with grief the waste of once free lands. He looks around at what were once our proudest ranks, And through his shriv'led lips commandsTake heed and glance about you, fellow countrymen. Pause to take account of all humanity aflame. Act and try to right yourselves, my countrymen, For at the judgment you shall be the one to blame. Forget the glory of which you told us yet, Of the heroes who have brought the enemy to shame. Begin the task of paying the great debt You owe for all the promised help which never came. Take up the arms which from my hands have fallen, Forget the folly of the heroes who have fought to keep men free. Take up the task of driving back the enemy 'til he has fallen. I died for you, now you can fight for me. CARL HILDABRAND

Intangible To Youth it is glory Strengthening friendships to bonds­ To Parents, devotion to youngTo Age, security, companionship and peace­ This intq;ngible feeling of love. .KATHY POTTER

This Is What I Believe We Are Fighting For The view across the valley from a cliff of Paduq Hills shows visitors a thriving valley full of industry. It lets my tired eyes rest upon millions of rows of green trees, like a great green patch­ work quilt with roads for ribbons. Here and there are bright spots of color where homes are standing, some prosperous, others small and unpretentions. This Is What I Believe We Are Fighting For. The great quilt has names written here and there over the green patchwork, names of friends with whom I have had fun. There is Barbara Brown, she was my pal through high school, she lived over there. There are Joyce, Arlene, Carol, Fronsa, Marion aand Nita, the Girls' Athletic Association Basketball Champions of 1944. Here on the Football field is the score to the Bonita football game; they won the game but we had a good time. Here are the team names over here: George, Tad, Richard, Harold, Roland, Bill, Don, Boris, Kenny, Cliff, Dick, Jack, Roger, Francisco, and Basil. They played a good game and lost but we'll beat them next year. This Is What I Believe We Are Fight­ ing For. Look down below the high school. There is where I live, that's where Dee lives and there is Dick's house. We go to school to­ gether. Next to Dick's house is the Neighborhood Playground where we play basketball and volleyball on the courts and al­ most every other game that con be put within these boundaries. Back behind my house is the alley where we play "Cops and Robbers" and "Kick the Can." And later on when kite season comes along we fly our kites back there because there aren't many telephone wires or trees to catch the kites or tangle the string. This Is What I Believe We Are Fighting For. See over there on Third Street-there is the Village Theater. Barbara works there, and on the other side is the Sugar Bowl where many times the gang have rounded up after a play, a game, a movie or just gone in to have a sundae with Dick and Bill, or to get a coke and see who was there. Then down on First Street is the Mission, which is older than the Sugar Bowl but just as popular with college and high school students. This Is What I Believe We Are Fighting For. Now look back over the patch-work quilt, there are homes, gardens, people, good times, close friends, things done and things to do. They represent the freedom and happiness which is What I Believe the Whole World Is Fighting For. MARJORIE CHESTER

"We Carry On" Oh Comrades brave who fought and died So nobly that a soul might live, Who freely gave to God and country All ye have to give"W e carry on." Each crudely fashioned cross That marks your lowly resting place, Ev'n though it saddens, still inspires And with grim, determined face"W e carry on." A thousand tears for you were shed A country's spirit mourns its loss, In every heart and mind inspired By you the infinite and dead"W e carry on." MARYLOU MILLER

Piano She covers the keys with a smooth even hand, Like lava pouring over a mountain. The tones are perfection, which lend to the ear A sense of relaxing contentment. KA THY POTTER

Still Life With bland indifference Youth uncovers Age, And, unimpressed, unknowing, views a page Of cherished memories. She takes the key From out the hand of mother's love, and she Opens a magic box of souvenirs. It holds a wealth of girlish smiles and tears­ A dainty square of scented lace, its use Coyly disguised, but meant to introduce A wary gentleman to its fair lady's side; A stiff old photograph of mother set astride Grandfather's knees; a locket gold Containing a baby curl of worth untold, A note written and sent with furtive glance, Preserved and hid by feminine romance­ All 'these and other bits of sentiment Reveal a view of mother never lent. BETTY GENE HIGBY

Echoes of a Vacant Mind Gone are the hours of freedom, The first day of school is here, And we must sit in dark class rooms Hoping our brains will soon clear.

Tho Seniors pretending no interest, Hold their tongues in disgust While the Juniors spring their blue sweaters VJ'ith shouts both loud and robust.

Who are those pretty young maidens Attired in red and white? They are the colorful pep team \IVho glvc us the spirit to fight.

Worms and love together And then just love alone. Ot�r plays are full of humor, And our casts become well-known.

The mood of the Prom is romantic. The music is sweet and low. The dawn breaks over the hilltops As homeward we warily go.¡ [ 86]

Senors and Senoritas In one great talent show, Gay costumes and sparkling patter Gee, how they pull in the dough!

The nightmarish finals are over And a11xiously students fret. Then the hallways resound with The question, "Hey, what didja get?"

This one day during the school year Boys' pants are rolled to the knees, The girls blossom out in bright night wear, And leave their poor fathers to freeze.

The rest of the school is in session, The Seniors their studies forsake, For they are all out throwing snowballs At Snowcrest their holiday take.

Dances and songs and gay costumes, Voices blended in sweet harmony, This is the operetta, "Martha," In which every he is a she.

At last comes the day for diplomas, Excitement is felt in the air. Fond Mammas and Poppas gaze proudly At young men and women up there.

Mr. Martin. Mrs. McLollan. Mr. Booth

Thank You Many people have put in time, effort, knowledge, and hard work in producing an Annual this year. Some of the hardest workers were the students of Claremont High, who, when asked, spent considerable time writing, or thinking on one phase or an­ other. The members of the staff have given their time to work out their different projects, willingly and well. Never before have I seen people so anxious to do something. The citizens of our community and of neighboring ones have obligingly helped us from the financial side. We have been for­ tunate in that the three men in Los Angeles, Mr. Cannicott, Mr. Glover, and Mr. Watson have been patient, cooperative, and wise. Mrs. Hull has been kind and very helpful by directing the Talent Show and advising for the Literary section. We have had three advisors who have worked as well as advised. Their constant push and pull has made possible this Annual. Mrs. Mclellan has spent much time and thought with the Art Editor planning the division pages and cover. Mr. Booth has been our Photographer and Photographic Advisor and with his patience has been invaluable. Mr. Martin as Annual Advisor has been the force behind this book and has kept us on the job. The successful efforts of these numerous people have been great­ ly appreciated! THE EDITOR
