appearrd at midlerm graduation. The list.of class ranking was

Student Association

The Student Association of Balboa High
School heads all other organizations inithin the
school. The purpose of the S. A. is to provide
social entertainment for the students, to spon-
sor the various organizations in school and to
improve the school in every way possible.
The Student ATsociation consists of a presi-
dent and vice-president, the presidents and
vice-presidents of the four classes and four
representatives elected from each class. The
president is chosen by student vote. He in
turn appoints the S. A. secretary. This year
Bob Whitam was president the first semester
and Mike Newlin the second semester. with
June Walter as secretary. Mr. Hatchett was
ROBERT % Hi T ~i. President again faculty adviser.
This year the organization sponsored a
drive for S. A. tickets, and for the first time in the history of our school B. H. S. could claim 100l'
Dances and picnics were sponsored, with various classes as hosts. The Inauguration Dance held Octo-
ber 1 was a success because of the suspense before the disclosure of the winners in class officer elections.
There were two senior dances-a football dance and a Valentine dance. The Junior Class entertained at a
Christmas dance and a St. Patrick dance. The sophomores went to town with a Sadie Hawkins dance while
the freshmen gave their dance in March. The climax of these social functions was the Junior-Senior Banquet.
A gala dance concluded the event.
The Employment Bureau, organized four years ago by the S. A., was active this year. Barbara Neville
headed the bureau with Nancy Chapin as her able assistant. The high school publications and the Camera
Club were supported by the S. A. The Student Association is especially proud of one accomplishment-for
the first time the Parrakeet was self-supporting. The Zonian was financed with S. A. funds.
All awards-sports, journalism, and speech-were paid for by S. A. and presented on Awards Day. At
this time the S. A. president for next year was presented.
r- ~ Student Ass-ocialion representalive-e %ere ushers at all

additional income for the S. A. came from ihe Little

i students at the commissary.

Victory Corps

Magazines, books, playing cards, records and games are some of the items collected by the Victory
Corps during the past year. The last week in each month brought around the magazine collection, usually
won by Mr. McKeever's class of freshmen.
Letters thanking us for books and magazines were received from Allied service men all over the world.
At Christmas each person who had written the Victory Corps a letter was sent a Christmas card and a note.
The Victor% Corps took charge of the annual American Junior Red Cross Drive and at Christmas col-
lected food, clothing, toys and money for the poor in Panama.
During the War Bond Carnival in February a War Bond and Stamp drive was held.
Special courses training students for the armed services were a part of the curriculum. Victory Corps
credit was obtained in auto-mechanics, aeronautics, physics and radio.
Leader of the Victory Corps was Harry Dannals, who was assisted by Bob Bryson, vice-president, and
Dolores Suisman, secretary. Each class had two representatives-the class secretary and vice-president. Each
home room had a Victory Corps representative.

Publications don't just bloom. There are headaches and heart-
aches attached to every issue. In room 116 pandemonium reigns.
And in the center, as always, is Mike Newland, editor of the Parrakeet.
harried and overworked, besieged on all sides by questioning jour-
nalists. No matter how rushed, somehow Mike always beats the dead-
line ... And in a quiet corner is Nancy Chapin, serene, doing her job
as assistant editor calmly and efficiently. Nancy comes through every
issue with."The Inquiring Reporter" . Dashing madly through the
halls, listening attentively to all bulletins, peeking through keyholes.
is Mary Newland, capable news editor, who manages to glean ever y
particle of news in B. H. S.... Barbara Ne% ille. exchange editor, sits
in the back of the room surrounded by mountains of exchange papers.
From them she garners ideas for "ye old publication." And in her
spare time Bobbie has turned out some of the best feature stories in
the Parrakee ... -Iola Dilhe, k is Bobbie's able assistant and is also a
crackerjack reporter . "Jackie" Dorgan is feature editor and the
originator of "Jhke Box Jive", one of the liveliest columns in the
paper ... Thanks to June Walter, business manager. and Mr. Hatchett,
business adviser, the Parrakeet has become self-supporting. They ha e
both done a super job . At the typewriter is red-headed Marion
Price, one of the Parrakeet's most versatile columnists. She writes
"Scattered ChAtter" and is the originatir of "Coed Corner" . Bob

Suisman. boys' sports editor. and Bob Nordstrolm. his assistant have
made the sports page really alive. Carmen "Chris" Hernandez and
"Honey'" Bergman take care of the girls' end of the page. "Chris"
also writes the student diaries with the too-too awful Homer as their
hero . Just about the hardest working girl on the staff is Elizabeth
"Libby" Lundv. She is the make-up editor, a job which requires time
and patience. Shirley Cullen is Libby's able assistant. Libbv also des-
erves credit for her column "Heartbreak Hospital" . i\\ i to know
what to wear and when? Practically the first thing every B. H. S. coed
turns to when the Parrakeet comes out is ithe column "Rage of the Age."
And the lady who takes a bow for this is Dolores Suisnan. In addition
Dolores does a bang-up job as circulation manager . The man with
the camera couldn't be anyone hut Hlerbie Stevens. His favorite sub-
ject is the girls' teams in shorts. By the way. Bob Nordstrom. our

Fredette's end run in the college game

Balboa was on the defensive the whole game except in the last
few minutes of play when Walter Ilinds intetrc-epted a pass on
college's 40-yard line and run to tlie 20-yard line before being
Because of the light Balboa's boys put uip. their never-say-die
spirit, their ability to keep on fighting and hitting that line hard
for two hours under a broiling tropical sun. the saying "a fighting
team is never licked" held true in this contest.
Since almost everyone expected C. Z. J. C. to overrun Balboa
by at least three touchdowns, Balboa won a moral victor y by holing
the college squad to a tie.
When B. 11. S. met Cristobal three weeks later after a full
month of practice under the guiding eye of Coach "Red" Ilum-
phries. Balboa won anl easy victory over Cristobal.
Because of the fact that the field was wet and slippery in the
first quarter, neither team could make headway and both were
forced to kick out several times. In the second period it was a
different story. Cristobal was driven back to their own five-yard
line. When the ball was snapped on the next play, Bob Bryson, one
of Balboa's ace tackles, broke through the line and tagged Cris-
tohal's fullback, Kutch, in their own end zone, which made the
score 2-0 in Balboa's favor. In the third period Balboa's offensive
started to click, and they worked the ball up to Crislobal's two-
yard line. On the next play ldue to a modified "quarterback sneak".
Balboa crashed over the goal line for a touchdo wn. The score.
which was 8-0 with Balboa on the long end, remained the same
until the final gun was fired.
The secret of Balboa's surcess this year in football was tilat
Coach Humphries had mohled Balboa's eleven men into a machine
with a fighting spirit that could not be licked.

That B. H. S. would cop the honors in the annual Triangular Track Meet .eemed assured as the Zonian
went to press.
First honors in the high jump and 120-yard high hurdles and broad jump seemed in the bag for B. H. S.
since Bob Kunkle holds the C. Z. high school record for hurdling the bar at 5' 101 and last \ear won the
high hurdles and placed second in the broad jump. Another record holder is Armand Cruz, Aho holds the
C. Z. high school record for pacing 880 yards in 2 minutes 10.9 sec ends.
Walter Hinds should place second in the 100-yard and 220.ard dashes. and TuonN Ostrea should plate
second in the 2110 yard low hurdles.

In the annual swim meet between B. H. S., C. lH. S. and C. Z. J. C.,
held on December 23. the Balboa boys won by a landslide. Stelres dives again
The Balboa squad included such human fish as Bob Whitam.
"Big Jim" \I.iii,,.I Dick Turbyfill. Bob Fredette and Bob Kunkel. Bob Whitam, who holds several out-
standing records. including a backstroke record in the Republic of Panama and the 16-year-old 100-yard free
style record, won the 100-yard breast and 11ii.i.1]1 backstroke events with ease. James Maguire won the
100-yard free style event and was an asset to the Balboa squad in the medley and free style relays. From
this year's line-up it looks as if B. H. S. may produce another Alan Ford.

Balboa faced the baseball season this year with confidence allh,ulgh Cris-tbal had defeated the Balboans in
the past two annual contests.
This year the Pacific side squad had many experien ed hall players who seemedd destined for the all-
star lineup in the '43-'44 game. These included Albeit Husted. who did a splendid job working behind the
plate in last year's game, Walter Hinds, who covers the lut-(orner like a %%et.blanket. Allan Poole. who
seemed headed to be the leading hitter in this year's (.arp3ign. and Hugo Perin.i who did a fine job of
hurling in past games.

Balboa's contingent this year was minus such top flight basketeers as Chapman. \ll II.I and Jones. but
the red and white squad retained many of the boys from last year's all-star squad. These boys were Husted.
Kunkel, Stempel, Turner and Fredette. As the Zonian goes to press. your sports editor predicts that the
Pacific siders will be on the ,lii, end of the final score in this year's game with the Atlantic dribblers.

For the first time in the history of t
Balboa High School's athletic program,
bowling was added to the boys' sport
Some 50 boys participated in the

This year the "B" Club, which is an organization of the most outstanding boy athletes of B. H. S., en-
j. ,\ 1 one of the most successful years since its funiilini1; by Mr. Lockridge in 1936.

The "B" Club is one of the two most exclusive clubs in high school. In order to become a member
of the club a boy must have shown exceptional good sportsmanship and made an all-star team in a major
"A" League sport. He must participate in the annual x.iine with Cristobal in his respective sport; he has
to be voted into the club by a two-thirds nmiijril. of the members. After a boy has passed these require-
ments, the next step is for the applicant to put himself at the complete disposal of all the members of the
club, who can do .iiillihnI' they want with him for the entire initiation day. Well, almost anything.
.\hAli,,1iil the initiation are comparatively strenuous, most of the inlomlingl boys live through them
and anxiously await the day when they will be initiators.
This year the official motto of the "B" Club is General Dliigla- MaI. \lrtlhur's famous quotation, "On the
fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds which, in other years, on other fields, will bear the fruits of
F., I..,

Bob Harvey has led the club this year, ably advised by Coach Humphries. The club has held three
successful dances, a picnic and, as usual, a very successful annual banquet with all the trimmings.

"Thanks for the \1mi mr" is a sentiment in the hearts o(f girls wearing tihe ble and white. Versatile
sportsmanship and a great spirit have bound the seventeen members together in close fellowship.

We remember . Prexy Norma raising her steady hand. grasping the gavel and Ianging for order .

against true sportsmanship and top-rate playing. On the
mound Balboa High had Carmen Hernandez w finding up to
send the ball to the well-placed glove of Honey Bergman be-
hind the home plate. On first base, ready for everything, was
Mary Jean Carey. Tiny Alice Fairbrother, well placed as
first short-stop, was prepared to throw a fast ball to first
baseman Carey. When spectacular runs were scored either
Louise Murwin or Norma Johnston swung the bat. Other sup-
