120. By 1922, the enrollment hod increased 10 190, and the girl's gyl'!'nasium and the shop

Since its beginning, the high school's principals have been Mr. Fronk F. Palmer, Mr. W. Hardin Hughes, Charles Herbert Covell, Dr. Earl Thompson, Mr. William C. Gaige, and our present capa­

ble principal, Mr. Lyle C. Mortin.

Claremont High School stands for character, scholarship, and service, and despite its relatively small size it hos maintained this high standard throughout the years.


"TIME FUES OVER US, BUT LEAVES ITS

SHADOW BEHIND"


As the year finally comes to o climo)(, and the troublesome ospects of school ore grod­ uolly forgotten, with the more pleasant ones returning to memory, we must recall the undying inspirotion ond guidonce which we hove received, without exception, from every member of the faculty.

In particular, we find two who through their generous help in stoge productions and equolly in the classroom and study halls hove olwoys encouraged us to do our best lo mointoin the higk scholastic char­ acter of Claremont High School. It is with lasting oppreciotion for a job well done tho! dedicate El Espiritu de 1953 to Mrs Mrs

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 par­ ticipation in athletics, dramatics, and everyday school work, they hove gained e,cperience and will be prepared for their more significant job next year.

At the end of the season they played the B football team in o game of touchtockle, ond. surprisingly, held the B's to a 6 to 6 tie.

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. Joseph¡s 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.

A hut of palm leaves for the refreshment booth, and a palm tree painted on each table helped to carry this out in a very effective man足 ner. The entertainment consisted of a hula by Marjory McBvrney, a mambo by Donota Hernan足 dez and his partner, and o duet sung by Bonnie Pomeroy and Dione Ferrill. The refreshments served were locos, root beer, and pie. The dance was enjoyed by all. Marilyn Young reigned os Football Queen.

The Tri-County Dance, held at the Pomona Col­ lege Student Union Building, was provided with music for the evening by the Monte Bello bond. The decorations induded the colors of each of the s.ix schools-Bonito, Chino, Citrus, Claremont, Corona, and Puente. Our football queen, Marilyn Young, reigned as Tri.County queen of 1952. The evening proved to be o great success, and was enjoyed by all of the schools present.


.. CIRL'5 LE!CUE FCRM!L The lost night in January found the Sycamore Auditorium o fantasy of blue lights ond spark­ ling stars. The Stardust Boll, otherwise known os the Girl's league Formal, hod the Father's bond present to provide music. During refreshment time, when coke and punch were served, the couples were entertained by Carolyn Sheets. As the lost strains of music faded, everyone agreed that it hod been o 'lery enjoyable dance.

T!LENT SHD-VJ The time: February 13, 1953. The place: A swanky winter resort high in the mountains. Yes, it was "Winter Varieties,'¡ the annual talent show. 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. The show was o great suc­ cess for 011 who sow it or participated in it.


Under the eJCcellent coaching of David Stern, Cloremont High School retained its high standards by again capturing the Tri-County League Basketball Chom­ pionship. The WoHpock went through the league season with nine straight wins, assuring them of t h e league championship. However, luck was against them as they lost the finol league game by two points. Going into the smoll schools CIF playoffs, the powerful cagers defeated a lanky St. Bernordine team, but in the semi.finals, were edged out by a strong Laguno Beach team. Mike Gray, George1llitroley, and Stanley Madsen were honored by making the all Tri-County league team
