«OUR MEMORABLE MU» story by B. Talbot and J. Mac. Robb ins

There are many memorable ex1ences that enter our lIves as are f l ushed through the system publ i c school s . The most pow­


reaiIty we are destined to

1 with from the moment we ve Mommy's hand and enter the Klnd­

arten classroom, until the mot we shake Dr . Gr annucl's hand

~ receive the hlv.h school dlplo­

I> Is the tas k of getting to know r l ntimate friends and our teacher s . Prequent ly the best teacher s ~

into both categories.


ny s tudents who have entered the gnet l c s piri tual sphere of warm­ I radiated by our beloved Mrs. hg- ("Mu" to the fortunate) the

stlnc tlon of her bei ng their

~st teacher" Is only part of


answer t o the ine vi table

est ion:

"What 18 a Mu?"

Obvious to all who know

s. Long i3 the fact that she Is

re than Jus t a devoted, talented , spected , well-liked and well­ red teacher. She ' s also a we ll­ ~ed , well-liked, r espected, ~ented , and devoted d~rector and lend- companion in the pursuit ot nSistenly impossible yet cons1s­ ntly successtul c reative goals . r creati ve contributions range om making sets out ot old' wood making acto r s and stage technic ­ ns out of young people .

The El Cerrito Actors Company the reputation ot being the nest by far In the district, and uld no doubt rank above most high hools and compare favorably with lIege groups. This fact is even re impressive cons idering that un­ ~e many less worthy high SChool ~ programs , ours is without any ~ncial backing but ticket sales. 6

The overwhelming majority of the c r edIt for success unde r the se trying condi tions goes to Mrs . Long.

But that ' s not why this honor ot de­ dication Is beIng bestowed upon our ~emorable Mu. This dedication I s inte nded to give recogni tion to a friend who teaches, and has thereby enri ched our education, Which is In the basic sense of the word our life . A sag-itarian by birth, Mrs . Long- was born into a faaily of art lovers and c l assical musicians . Af ter a rigorously academIc hig-h s chool education, includ ing per­ formances as a flutist, she attended the UDiversity of Califo rnia and achieVed honors with the B.A. and M. A. deg-rees in Theater Arts , Direct­ ion, Drama Literaturo a nd Eng-lian.

For Pe;,:

During the initial stages of her ear ly teaching career , she married and bad three girls, all of whom have achie ved colleg-e ed­ ucation.


Three of j·lrs . Long ' s cl05est; colleagues; Hrs. Anderson, Mr. Emmons, and Hr . Robbins , were aSked to contribute a comment . Mrs. Long i s one o f the most valuable educat or s I l ve ever encountered. Her hIgh artistiC standarrl s , at ­ ent10n to minute det<\ll, and her abil ity to cOil1J!)un1cate roe necessIty o f suc~ concepts to t~e stUdent body have r oduced outstand Ing hIgh schoo l tbea trical pr oductIons n the cIty of El Cerrito. For the past two years , I have worked ~ it~ Mrs. In the Fine Arts Depar tment . Four special quali­ l es have continually impressed lIIe: warmth, co~ r te6y, ~ntleness and patience. ~ng

It's really been marvelous working with some one has so much to gI ve . - Mrs. 'to:!:llr,ie Ander so:": I count it a great honor to have bee~ able t o work lth Pe g Long the past seven years. Her knowledge of ~ama, her empathy with stude nts and her enthusiasm for ire have been a deep inspiration tor me. rn the work aat we have done togethe r on the musicals r have lear­ ~d as much about drama as it I had been In one or her lasses. I am looking f orward to many more fIne years r being on the s~e t eam with Peg Long . - Mr. Richard E~ons ~

Seven years ago, she assu~ed the role of ExecutIve Director of the El Cerrito Actor s COlDpany . Since that ti~e she has produced , directed and desIgned over fifty full - scale major productions fo r the community. Tr.rough deep and intense study she has beconc one of the most res pected scholars of Dramatur gy In the Bay Area . Mrs. Long is a professional actress and folksinger. She has worked In live l egitimate theatre, cInematography , film and advertise­ ments. At one point In her career she was a nightc lub ent ert ainer and folksinger. Each year she plays a maJ or part In the huge produc tion and dir ect i on of the Renaissance Pleas­ ure Faire a nd the Charles Dickens Christma s ?aire . In her private life she is a superb spi nner , weaver and tapes try artist. Yearly she travels throughout the world to faraway places f or increased knowledge and stimulus to her fields of study.

Of all her achievenents, her greate st accomplishment has been In phi l osophicall y and spirItua lly touching the hearts and minds of hundreds of young people through the medium of theatre. For her , the theatre has provided an intellectual and practical environment through whi ch she could share her talents and expl ore the world of the creatIve and performing arts with t he whole P8.J:Illy of I~ an.

The Unicorn' s Lost Maiden Wandering down from the Highlands a curi ous Unicorn with crimson mane and golden heart SearChed for a spi ndler's whee l and a chalice of love . In restless canter, he touched every mountaIn and swam e very loeh .

The Class of

' 7~

haa had Its

ups and it s downs, but thi s year Is an "up" year.

To Btart with we are the tlrst

graduating class this year In the Richmond School District . We also s~em to be the largest graduating

class In the district. Fifty sen i ors

wll 1 be honor graduates - more than In rece nt years. El Cerrito High School 1s cont inuing to send more students to college-abou t 80% of

the class will enter college next fall. More stUdents have been ac­

cepted t o out of state co lleges this year than In any other year . This year's SenIor Class haa accomp l ished many things In their ~ hree years at El Cerrito High . In our sophomore year we sold cla8s pins , cook bOOks, and had many smaller 8sles to increase our finances. I n our Junior year we had a Successful Fashion Show a nd ::larty smaller sales. Now, in our sen~or year we have h ad the po~d er ?uft football game, the first fUn night, a pancake breakfast, do ugh­ ~u t sa les, car washes , and dues ~ard sales. Dues cards sold we ll this year , un like the Class of '73 . ~e have raised over $3 , 000 to sup­ ~ort our act ivities.

In 1971 as sophomores, our

~irst El Cerrito High activity

was buildin~ our Homecoming float.

~Pooh on Pinole" was the slogan

and it received second place being

edged out by the Class of 72's

~loat, "Recycle the Sp-artans" with

~ he cans. In the fall of 1972 the

;unior Class united once again to

~uild our winning f l oat. "The

=-agles are Tak ing a Gamble" re­

ceived a first p lace and gave our

class a f eellng of accomplishment

and pride. Our f l oat this year,

-The Ollers Are Having a Shortage"

~ eceived seconO p l ace behind the

class of 75's f l oat. The winni ng ~ loat "Tras h t he Oilers" was an e xcellent float and was hard to ~ o beat. Brandon Swain, our class gc~illa, led the spiri t fo r the Senior Class during the Homecoming gace.


in our Junior year the cheat ing r ing in chemist ry was broken up by Mr. Beck, Mr. Etcheverry and Mr. Tobin, and the most mysterious of a ll was the appearance overnight of the giant red '74 on t he south end of the main building above the t op floor windows. The Sen iors have already celebrated Ditch Day at Adobe Creek and co~lng up is the Senior Ball at t he Si r Prancia Drake Hotel on June 1 with ~usic pro­ v i ded by Badwater Bridge. The Senior Walkout wi l l

be on June 5 with graduation exer ­ cises follow i n~ on - June 6 at 8:00 p . llI . at t he Richmond Au~Hto riu.: The graduation speakers will be Rlchard Parmet er and Ben Dixon . R1chard's speech " ill be on "In ­ dIvId ualism through Education" and Ben's speech is on "Success . " The Disneyland trip-June 7 & S" wIll bring our Senior year and our SenIor activities to a close, but we wil l all have many melllOrie~ to look back on of our three years a : El Cerr ito HIgh School.

Mr. Dunn's Last Request L1sten uP. you fools. As you cross the border to eighteen, re­ member you are entitled to be draf­ ted as well as vote. If you don't vote to mess up the government, the government may come and draft you, or tax you, or jail you , or declare you a postage stamp.

Seniors during their final se­ mester of scho ol have a tendency to re flect with some sentimentality on the ir high school experiences . I take this opportu ni ty to share with you some of my thou~hts and experi ­ ences as Student Body Pre sident. I shall endeavour to dispense with need less emot i ons whether they be of joy or sadness . I launched into my "political" career rather abruptly. My lack of experienc e in student government. has in SOMe ways, been a hi ndTance in achieving some of the goals and obj ectives that I had hoped to ac­ comp lish. "So much to lea rn and so litt le time ." I became involved 1n Student government with the belief that through i t much could have been accomp lished. I still hold this be­ lief . This 15 not to say that pr o­ bl ems do not exi st within tpe body; many improvements can be made. Yet as an institution, if well organ­ ized if well lead, and containing repr~sentatives who actually re pr e ­ sent their fellow students, student government is almost limit l ess as to the changes i t can ind uce. ;~ Olfe':! mind runs wild with thoughts of fant asti c achievements when first elected; the great pyra­ mids seem nothing in comparison. The rude awakening is quick, how­ ever. Change does not come over­ night, nor Is i t effected tremendously by one individual. For various reasons, many of my efforts have gone in vain. A lesson one mu st learn early in hJs term is patience.

That's ~ trip: Do unto the syste m before it does unto you. Grab the bosses Dy their sapes and the rest will follow.

As my years here at E.C. come to an end, I can't help thinking about the things we ' ve faile d to accomplish. I guess I ' m sad in one respect but much more frustrated in another. I feel sad about l eaving El Cerrito, but I feel frustrated that in all my time here we've never really learned how to communicate. More than ever people s eparate themselves into c l i­ Ques; mor e than ever peop le don't care about other people's problems, and more than ever we ta lk but ge t nothing done.

I don't ab ~o lve myse lf from guilt bec au se I knOW I've been a part of i t all. ~u t I ur~e stu ­ dents in the future to do What we couldn't; find some meaning in stu­ dent government and school , and to ~o past mere talk and find out what real communic ation is. And above all, sa tisfy youself with your goa ls .

I can say that because I spent 3 yea rs atartln~ a lot of thin~a and fin ishing none of the~. So I g Ive yo~ my wise advice and hope none of you:".end up me. And I wish you good luck. Most of you will go over the torder and turn eighteen. I hope you regIster and vote. Because vo­ ting outside of s chool is not like voting in school. If It's a "game" the reason the present politicians are in is because the rest of us didn't play their "game." Their game is taxes , cops , laws. welfare, s ocl~l security, and war, Which are not the same things as stUdent body stickers. All power :0 next year's Freshmen !
