Words and Music by John M. McGinnis




Seniors, stand up and sing;
Let all our voices ring.
Papers are in and the books are read;
We turn our eyes to the dreams ahead.
We hesitate as we go,
Thinking of friends we know.
Fondly we sing this tune.
We want to remember the days from September to early in June.


Here's to the times we knew,
A smile and a soft goodbye.
Here is a cheer for you,
Old Balboa High.
We worked and we played,
And we fought and we made,
And we're proud of the job we've done.


We come to the end at last.
High school years are passed,
Years that were filled with our tears and joys,
The laughs and loves of the girls and boys.
So thanks be to Mom and Dad
For all the fun we had,
All of it gone too soon.
We want to remember the days from September to early in June.

The Student Association of Balboa High School holds the
master key to all the other organizations and activities of
the school. The officers and council of the Student Associ-
ation serve as the student government and coordinate all
extra curricular affairs of the school.
The officers of the Student Association are the president
and the vice-president elected at the end of the school year
from the Junior Class to serve the following year. This
past year Ian J. Johnson was president and John M. McGinnis,
vice-president. Louise Harrell was appointed secretary. Mr.
E. W. Hatchett worked with the officers and council as ad-
visors.
The council of the S.A. consists of the president, vice-
president, secretary, and four representatives from each of
the four classes. During the past year this council met every
Wednesday morning.
During the summer preceding this year, the S.A. began
a new project, the S.A. Club. A large dance was held in the
school library announcing the club, which opened two weeks

EDITORIAL STAFF

The tables are turned in Room 116 when we snoop on the super-
snoopers, the staff of the Parrakeet. Checking on names, we find the
following newshounds hard at work.
Editors-in-chief-three of 'em! Jean Carson, who served as a reporter
last year, started as ed for the first three editions. Helen Dolan edited three
more and then retired in favor of Jimmy Murray.
News Eds Helen Madrigal and Frances "Fay" May were responsible
for putting your name in the paper, and what they didn't know about,
Assistant News-Scout Phil Bauman did.
SHead Editorial Writer was Jimmy Murray, praising and prodding to
action everything and everybody in school. More editors! Nanette Lynch
headed the girls' sports section, assisted by Phyllis Zemer. In the boys'
sports department, Bob VanWagner and Charles "Chuck" LeBrun brought
in the bitter and bright of the year in athletics. John McGinnis was in
charge of the new literary page, FHl M\I THE INKWELL. He was assisted
by a junior, Victor Dunaway. Another junior was Joke Editor Mildred
"Millie" Woodruff, who did PEEK AND BOO, our corn column, complete
with cobs. Octavia "Tavy" Garlington was art editor. Deena Koch mailed
our exchanges and Ruth Smith was make-up editor.
Ed Schnake was advertising artist deluxe for the paper and Sue Hand,
assisted by Helen "Chickie" Hobbs and Gloria Caries, took care of circula-
tion. Bob McIlvaine qualified as picture director.
Columns came to the fore this year and included favorites such as QUE
PASA? by Yolanda Paredes, SCATTERED CHATTER and CONSUELA
SLEPKISH by "Tavy" Garlington, FLICKER FLASHES by Eleanor
Llopis, THE STUDE S SPEAK by John McGinnis, and COVER GIRL
by Ruth Smith.

And that's not all! Helen Madrigal' LUNDER
COVER, Helen Dolan's JUKE BOX JIVE, Kenneth
Borsch's INQUIRING REPORTER, and Mickey
Shutt's INTERVIEW ARTICLES were regulars too.
Four fledglings, Diana Humber, Pat Mayo, Pam-
ela Btesh, and John Axe, with the juniors already
mentioned, give promise of an excellent Parrakeet
in the future.



BUSINESS STAFF
Business Manager Ed Schnake was a super-
salesman. He and his ad sellers could be seen rush-
ing off to Panama after school and on Saturdays.
Ed was assisted by Yolanda Paredes and Phyllis
Zemer, who typed his letters and bills.
Ad sellers included Barbara Schnake, Jerry
Prager, Billy Oliver, Nanette Lynch, Mary Lou
Haines, Albert Attaway, Kenneth Borsch, Phyllis
Zemer, Pat Mayo and Diana Humber.


HONORS
The Parrakeet is proud of its First Class Honor
Rating from the National Scholastic Press Associa-
tion. Almost all the members of the staff are eligi-
ble for membership in Quill and Scroll or for Quill
and Scroll Creative Writing Awards.

The door of Room 116 slammed violently as Octavia (Fran-

in with sheafs of layouts, papers and ideas to be greeted by
Prager and Reif (What'll-We-Use-For-Ideas), Assistant Editors.
Together they rushed to Miss Thomas, A for Adviser, where
1 i e-l-1.mre) May, our Business Manager; Zemer and Lynch,
our Undaunted-in-the-face-of-all-odds Girls' Sports Editors and
Camille Christopher (When does the Art Club meet?), Club

L. .f s. Mai


The maestro rapped for attention and raised his baton. The twenty-fourth annual
program of Christmas music under the stars in the grade school patio was about to
begin. Before it was over the audience was convinced that this year the B.H.S. \I,.'r
Department was tops. A chorus of 170 and an orchestra of 40 played and sang such
numbers as Handels "Hallelujah Chorus," Gounod's "Sanctus" and \1.1- .l'1n.'s "In-
termezzo" from "Cavalleria Rusticana." Soloists were John \hl (;iirni-. baritone vocal-
ist; Dorothy Bigelow, trumpet; and Dick Colston, trumpet. This program and all of
the others presented during the year were successful through the untiring efforts of
our director, Mr. Neil V. Branstetter.
The school band was active throughout the year, "pepping it up" at the big games,
marching in parades, pla\ili for the Navy Day and Pan-American Day Programs.
and Jppearing in the Music Festival. The orchestra presented music for the Little Thea-
tre plays, gave several pr-,grjini- for service men and topped off the Music Festival.
The chorus highlighted both the Christmas program and the Festival.
Regular practices for all three music organizations, band. orchestra, and chorus,
were held on every school day. All members performed in public with their groups.
No individual instruction was given but wide experience was offered in group work.
Studreni participating learned the value of co-operation in music and in life.


The chorus blends its voices in Handel's "Messiah"

George Fedde, Victory Corps Student Leader


Over the top in the War Fund Drive


During the past year, the Balboa High School Victory
Corps, under the direction of George Fedde, has continued
its record of war service. Since the outbreak of the war the
Victory Corps has contributed half a million magazines to
men in the armed service the world over.

Competition is keen among homerooms, a silver cup be-
ing presented to the leading room.
Edwin Baumbach was in charge of stamping, sorting, and
distributing the magazines. He sends the magazines wherever
they are needed-perhaps to the Red Cross, perhaps to the
Seaman's Service Organization, or perhaps to the docks. The
last shipment of 18,000, which was taken to the docks, was
gone in five hours.
Letters of thanks pour into the Balboa High School mail-
box from all over the world. England. North and South
America, and the South Pacific are just a few of the places
from which we have received letters of appreciation.

$100.00 was contributed to the War Fund, and canned
food, clothing, games, cards, etc., have been sent to the Red
Cross, which in turn has distributed them to orphanages or
others in need.


Hall a million magazines!

COACH LEISY COACH HiUMPHRIES COACH WooDS








The 1944 Balboa All-Star football team, captained by triple-threat Harold Tuttle, and under the guidance of Coach C. A.
Humphries, though undefeated, gained second place in the Big Three Conference.
Losing practically the entire 1943 squad, Balboa has come through with some fine backs in Dedeaux. Wallace, Kelly and
"Speed Boy" Ostrea. Big "Red" Tuttle was the most experienced back on the squad, having a year of All-Star behind him.
He returned at the quarterback post. Al Attaway and Robinson Ramirez, also on the squad last year, returned this season.
A shoulder injury early in practice sidelined Ramirez the remainder of the season. Attaway, a deadly runner, alternated with
Tuttle at quarterback. Bob Simms, a first year man on the squad, is a fine passer and occasionally gets off some large
gains. Chet Trim, still another first-year gridman, who hails from Louisiana, held down the second-string fullback position.
Shifting to the line, we see an array of line talent, the most outstanding being 185-pound Foster Esleck, a dynamo of
grinding bone and gristle, who paired with Jim Claxton, also tipping the scales at 185 pounds, made the line extremely
powerful. Assisting were two hard-driving speedy boys in Bob Engelke and Bill Bartholomew, who held down the first
string guard slots. Over the ball was able 170-pond Dick Biava, who did some fine ball snapping.
Mannie Quintero and "Sonny" Smith, teamed together, gave B.H.S. a pair of really talented ends. 'ri.lr-r.-iijl\inr
this top-rate line are second-string ends Bill Bauman and Bob Van '3-n.-rr. tackles John McGinnis and 205.u,..nl "Bu'-"
Little, guards Marcel Martin and Jos6 Naranjo and at center huge 225-pound Bill Weatherby.
Coach Humphries declared that the one thing the squad lacked as a whole was experience. He stated that there would
be a fine squad next year if these same boys stayed around. Possessing mostly a defensive team, with a flashy offensive
displayed at times, B.H.S. looks forward to the coming season to avenge the two ties.

Displaying great defensive ability
throughout the entire game, the Cristo-
bal eleven gained a tie with Balboa at
Strode Field.
Balboa won the toss, and Captain
Harold Tuttle elected to kick. Max
Weich took the kick deep in Cristobal --
territory, but he was t.ig.ed before he
could get started. Several runs were .
tried but were not successful in gaining .
and the ball was kicked back to Balboa. ..,
Dedeaux received the kick and ran .-. ..,, *..-.
it back 20 yards. On the first play, .
Dedeaux carried the ball around right '.,;
end and chalked up a first down. Fail-' '
ing to make enough yardage for another
first down, Tuttle kicked deep into College digs in for a goal line stand
Cristobal's territory. At this point the
Cristobal team took to the air with a
series of incomplete passes and consequently was forced to return a kick to Balboa. Following this the
quarter ended.
Balboa, now in possession of the ball, started to threaten. Dedeaux picked up a first down on a right
end run. On the very next play, Sonny Smith took a pass from Tuttle for another first down, but due to
an offsides penalty the play was called back. Tuttle returned a kick to Cristobal due to their failure to make
any more yardage. Upon receiving the kick, Cristobal once again took to the air with Gibson heaving the
pigskin to their right end for a first down. Cristobal followed this with several runs, which failed to net
them a first down. The half ended at this point.
With both teams fighting desperately to score, Tuttle opened the second half with a long kick-off into
enemy territory. Cristobal returned the kick to their own 25-yard line. Gibson once again began an aerial
assault, but all passes went incomplete and Gibson kicked back to Balboa. Dedeaux caught the kick and ran
it back. He completed a pass just over center to Tuttle for a first down. Once again Balboa tried to open
a running offensive but did not succeed and returned a kick to Cristobal. On the first play il.-i.ii passed.
but it was incomplete.
Jack Haywood carried the ball
around right end on the next play, Our boys planning their strategy for the second half
but before he had made any yardage,
Balboa's left tackle, Little, broke through
and stopped him for a loss. Haywood
continued to run with the ball, thinking
he had not been tagged and raced to a

Before Cristobal could stage a real threat
the Balboa defense stiffened and they
kicked back to Balboa, which ended the V
third period.
Starting the fourth quarter in posses-
sion of the ball, Balboa threatened to
score on a series of plays, but two 15-
yard penalties put an end to any ideas
that Balboa had of scoring. Tuttle kicked
back to Cristobal, and in four downs
succeed in making nothing and once
more returned the ball to Balboa by way
of a kick. With time running short,
Tuttle began throwing passes to his ends.
Of the four he threw, none were com-
pleted and the final whistle blew with
neither team scoring.

years the Balboa High

KELLY Basketball holds second place in the sports' field
at Balboa High School. Football alone takes preced-
ence over it in turn-out of players and attendance at
the games. The last two seasons attendance at the games
has been all that could be desired, the gymnasium being
packed with enthusiastic students. This is in line with
the trend in the athletic world, where basketball has
increased tremendously in popularity.

Last year after sinking College twice, our B.H.S.
quintet lost a 29 to 21 game to the Cristobal five. This
year it is our aim to avenge this game. It will be a
tough scramble, but your sports editor predicts that
a safe bet could be placed on our "Red and White"
squad.

As the Zonian goes to press, the basketball season
has not begun. Before practice begins, it is difficult
to pick the team that will represent the school, but it
is easy to select a few of the most promising players.
The following line-up is probable:





















reft to right, kneeling: Phil Bauman, John Mallia, Jim Smith.
".,,./,, Barry Kenealy, Dave Kelleher, Bill Bauman

SMITH

At center, Harold Tuttle, six-foot-three-inch pivot KENEALY
man for the past two years, will give plenty of com-
petition to other candidates because of his deadly pre-
cision with either hand. Tom Kelly, able to block any
shot and with a dead eye for side court shots, will
probably fill a guard position, but he will be a good
man anywhere. A. C. .(Ace) Wallace, fast, quick-
moving, with a right arm "gancho" that splits the cords,
is a probable candidate for forward. Charles LeBrun
has a dead eye for the basket from any place on the
court and will probably be in the other forward posi-
tion. Candidates for the second guard position are
Jim Smith, Bob Engelke, and John Mallia. Other
promising players are David Kelleher, Philip Bauman,
Jim Mullli Barry Kenealy and Bill Bauman.

However, before the season gets underway, a dark
horse may appear to push any of these fellows off the
list.

This year the Balboa High School "A" League All-Stars went down before the onslaught of the Canal
Zone Junior College and the Cristobal High School tens. The double loss suffered by the "Red and White"
was the first in the past three years.
Left-hander John Hower was assigned the pitching chores for both of these games, and even though
he did a sterling job, overpowering opposition won out. Balboa's line-up was studded with other stars
as Bill) Cardoze, who held down the catching spot, Carl Rice who did an excellent job around the initial
sack, Dick Conover at second base, and Marcel Martin at short. Fred Bauman covered the hot corner like
a veteran. Ian Johnson, Jim O'Donnell, Gabriel Kourany and William Muller make up a fast-playing out-
field. Coach Howard Woods ironed out all possible flaws and his team was in tip-top condition through-
out both games.
