SENIORS The class of ·53 bids farewell to C.H.S. How different we feel now than on that day in September, 1947, when we first enrolled. We hove memories Which we will treasure oil our lives-basketball, football, operettos, ploys, Talent Shows, dances, offices we've held, our favorite teoche-rs, end the opportunities we·ve hd'd. Then there ore the less pleasant memories�hours spent in detention, tests, the games we·ve lost, embarrassing moments, pet peeves---<1U of which ore o port of high school. However the more enjoyable things will undoubtedly stand out rhe most. All that is behind us now. Some of us will go on to college, some will begin working. The future is uncertain, as it usually is, but youth hos always been optimistic, and we hove faith in our ability to do our best.

JUNIORS The ultimate goal of every Junior class is the Junior-Senior, which to the Closs of "54" meant hours of hard work in food soles, paper drives, and dreaming up such money raising projects as the donkey basketball game. Under the energetic social chairmen, the class succeeded in putting on a most successful prom. Besides this they took on active port in almost all the school activities. This year they hove been apprentices looking to next years leadership. With parÂ ticipation in athletics, dramatics, and everyday school work, they hove gained e,cperience and will be prepared for their more significant job next year.

Coach Martinez, B. Jones, G. Brooke, C. Gill
The frock team was coached by Mr. Martinez and led by Captain Bill Jones. The team entered several relays and invitational meets, resulting in several medals and a few hard earned points. The league season was not very successful with four losses and one win, although the Chino meet wos wos necided until the lost two events. Claremont defeated St. JosephÂˇs in o non-league meet. Several boys entered in the Tri-County League Finals. All the boys usually placed in the meets, but the lack of depth frequently resulted in more points for the opposing team.

Under the elCperienced coaching of Mr. Cohn, this year's baseball team was very strong. It hod o great deal of speed and wos a very good defensive club. led by the pitching of Steve Gon· zolez, and the hilling of Eddie Wolfe, it looked as lhough the team would come through with many victories, but since the annual went to p,eu before the league started, the outcome can not be printed here. However, from the two practice game victories over Webb and Covino, in which Gonzolez pitched o two hit shutout, and o four hitter respectively, hopes were high of be ing near the top in the the league.

While the plot was o little on the corny side, filled with spies, F.8.1. agents and Brood. way stars, the setting was super and the acts brought out the talent of one third of the people in the high school.
