Showcases play an important part in keeping
Balboa High School attractive. They get us into the
spirit of Christmas or Carnival, they contain dis-
plays from various clubs, or they display class '
rings or graduation announcements.
But showcases require a lot more than work. A
certain creativity is necessary to make them a "
success. It is phenomenal to think that the show- .
case workers are able to come out with so many :;
fresh and original developments of the traditional
themes. Some of them deal with topics of current
and often controversial interest, while others may
employ popular cartoon characters.
Even so, showcases do require as much work as
perhaps less artistically inclined activities. First
they must be planned and designed. Then comes
the chore of gathering the components of the
showcase. Tedious and often discouraging hours
of actual construction follow.
The following morning comes the true test. As
crowds surround the showcase, committee members .
seep into the crowd, anxiously listening for com-
"Hey, that's pretty good!"
"That's really original!"

Sports is another field in which the men behind
the scenes play an important part. Their role, while
not so glamorous as that of the athlete, is none the
less indispensable. Their quiet support lends a unify-
ing spirit to the sport, and is a valuable morale
The jobs of these students are many and varied,
but they all have one thing in common: they keep
the activity going. The jobs they fill may at first
seem insignificant: water boy, timer, messenger or
starter. Still, without people to do these things, our
sports could not be carried off with the accuracy
and harmony which the spectators take for granted.

Each class has its own bulletin board which keeps
students posted on class activities and meetings,
the latest happenings, and a few current jokes.
Several clubs also have bulletin boards. The Sci-
ence Club bulletin board, for example, keeps us
posted on the latest scientific developments, while
the Future Teachers of America Club Bulletin board
acquaints us with National Education Week, or
v.;t, new methods and aids in teaching.

A great deal of confusion, hair-tearing and ten-
sion is involved in putting on a play. Through the
efforts of many determined committeemen, how-
ever, some sort of order finally begins to emerge,
and the Drama Club begins working as a whole to- -
ward one common goal: a perfect opening night.

; ( i..^

Costumes must be made. It seems a near im-
possibility to have them ready by rehearsal time,
but it is necessary so that actors can get used to
them. However, they are constantly subject to al-
terations, fittings or even complete replacement up
to opening night.
Make-up is another vital factor. The members
of this committee must experiment to find the
make-up combinations right for each actor.


Meanwhile, the stage crew is busy constructing
sets and scavenging the necessary props. Lighting
and sound effects must also be geared to fit the
mood of the play.

Some committees, rather than being

club, work on promoting that interest. Pub-
licity committees are in charge of making
posters, sending out announcements and
advertising through local means. The over-
3 whelming turnout at the hootenannies this
4" year was largely due to the work of indus-
trious poster makers, and the publicity
stunt of the Isthmian Inklings greatly boost-
ed the sales of the school's literary maga-

Finally, committees must also be organ-
ized to sell and distribute what is publi-
cized. Orders for class rings and gradua-
tion announcements, as well as reservations
for dances, must be taken.

On February 3 and 4, Balboa High School hosted the
Seventeenth Annual Balboa Relays. Each year, at the end
of the track season, athletes throughout the Isthmus flock
to the Balboa Stadium to participate in this colorful event.
This year there were three divisions in which the athletes
could take pa-+. All contestants who hailed from the mili-
tary bases on the Isthmus, or the University of Panama,
were put in the Open Division. The Senior Interscholastic
Division was made up of teams from Canal Zone College
and all the high schools that wished to take part in the
contest. All athletes who attended junior high school were
placed in the Junior Interscholastic Division.
A large crowd was on hand both nights to watch Cristo-
bal take first place. Everyone that attended this year's
Relays agreed that it was one of the finest track meets
in the past several years.

En route to victory!

This year the Balboa Bulldogs, under the coaching of Mr.
Stew Brown swept through an undefeated season. The Bulldogs
participated in 3 quadrangular meets.
All the boys that were on varsity track this year had to
participate in intramural track before the regular season began.
These intramural meets gave the varsity squad a preview of the
regular season. For the members of last year's track team the
intramural meets were perfect for conditioning. Rookies on
the team profited by the experience they gained in these pre-
season contests.
Many boys lettered in track this year. Larry Quinn, the
captain of the track team, scored the most points for the
Bulldogs this year. i 0
With a large number of the boys that were on this year's ..
track team returning next year, the students of B.H.S. can look
forward to a banner year in track for 1968. i-

The Bulldogs had a disappointing season this year, but
it was not a result of lack of hard work. Every game was
hard-fought to the finish.
For every pass that was completed in a game, twenty
were completed in practice. For every field-goal that
was kicked in a game, ten were kicked in practice. For
every yard that was gained in games, five hundred were
run in practice. The key word for the Bulldogs this year
was WORK.

The Bulldogs take a well earned break during half-time.

Bulldogs Provide

Rugged Opposition

Preseason exercise for the varsity football team
began in July. Monday through Friday for two
hours each day, prospective Bulldogs reported to
the gym for calisthenics. These exercises consisted
of sit-ups, push-ups, reaction drills, wind-sprints,
and laps around the football field. They continued
till the beginning of the school year, at.which time
football equipment was handed out and regular
practice began.
The team learned plays, different types of forma-
tions, and how to play the position they were go-
ing out for. When the first game rolled around we
had a well organized team.
The first game of the season was the annual Red
and White game. This was an intersquad game
which gave the Bulldog fans an opportunity to pre-
view their team. The Red team was victorious by
a score of 18 to 7.
Two weeks after the Red and White game, the
colorful Jamboree was held on the Atlantic side
of the Isthmus. The Bulldogs and many of the stu-
dents from BHS went to the other side with high
hopes, but returned rather downcast after Balboa
placed third in the all-team contest.
Determined to win their next game, the varsity
squad trained very hard. This game, which was
played against the Athletic Club, ended in a 32
to 0 rout in favor of the Bulldogs.
The following week, the Bulldogs travelled to
Coco Solo to battle the Cristobal Tigers. The
Bulldogs were favored to win by two touchdowns,
but at the end of the game the score stood at 32
to 12 in Cristobal's favor.
Canal Zone College handed Balboa its second
defeat. This game which ended with a score of 32
to 0 marked the end of the first half of the football
The second half of the season was a repetition of
the first half. Balboa defeated the Athletic Club
for a second time with a score of 27 to 7. In the
following two weeks the Bulldogs were beaten twice.
Balboa suffered its second defeat to Cristobal by
a 27 to 7 margin. In the Anchor Game, Canal Zone
College took a hard-fought game from Balboa, the
final score being 18 to 6.

Coach Anderson plans next move. Coach Anderson goes over pass play with Jerry Wooster.

Mr. Ross Anderson and Mr. Herb Raybourn were the
coaches of the Bulldogs. Mr. Anderson was in charge of
the line and Mr. Raybourn piloted the back-field. After a
full day of teaching, both coaches spent two hours each
night guiding our varsity squad.
Few people realize the amount of work that coaches must
do during a season. There are many problems that coaches
must solve before the first game is played.
In the first week of school the coaches must draw up

team rosters, post practice schedules, issue equipment,
and do a number of other jobs. A coach must be present
at every practice session. He must work his team very hard,
but never hard enough to make them lose their morale.
During the course of a football season, a good coach
will become many different things to the men on his team.
He will become a teacher, an advisor, and above all, a
good friend.

Coach Raybourn sends in a substitution.

Bulldogs Swim

To Victory

All persons that were interested in being on the varsity swimming
team were told to report to the gym on November II. In this meet-
ing, Coach Raybourne told the prospective Bulldogs what the sea-
son would consist of. He told the group to exercise by themselves for
three weeks and then he would lead them through practice for five
more weeks. Finally, after eight weeks of practice the Bulldogs had
their firjt meet.
The first meet was held at Coco Solo. Our team got off to a slow
start, but made a quick recovery, and managed to win the contest.
The next meet was held at Balboa. The Bulldogs were favored to
win by a wide margin. Our team piled up an early lead and added
to it throughout the meet.
The third meet was again hosted by Cristobal, the latter being
.defeated by the powerful Balboa team. Many people thought that
B.H.S., after having won the first three meets, might become over-
confident and lose their fourth and final meet. The Bulldogs, how-
ever, disproved these rumors and reigned supreme in their final
During the course of the season many records were broken by
members of the B.H.S. swimming team. In a banquet held on January
4, awards and trophies were presented to the Bulldogs for their out-
standing performance during the course of the season-a fine end to
a fine season.

A good turn can win a race.

Alfred Creque flashes fine form on the backdive.

A good team just doesn't happen; it takes practice,
determination, and ability. The Bulldogs combined these
three qualities this year to swim to a perfect season.
The Bulldogs practiced for eight weeks in order to
swim in four meets. Day after day the Balboa swim ."
team practiced for upcoirrm;n. meets. To build stamina
and endurance the members of the swimming team
swam laps, sprints, and did regular dry land exercises.
Under the supervision of Coach Raybourne the Bull-
dogs developed from an enthusiastic group of untrained
swimmers into a well organized winning team. With
many of this year's Bulldogs returning next year, Balboa ,
can look forward to another brilliant season in 1968. "

Baseball practice began in the middle of January.
Every afternoon the candidates for the varsity squad
could be found practicing in the stadium. Before reg-
ular practice began each day, the team had to go
through a half hour of conditioning exercises. These
exercises included pushups, setups, different types of
stretching exercises, and the running of many laps.
Under the coaching of Mr. Herb Raybourne the
members on the team practiced batting, fielding, and
many other basic fundamentals of baseball. In the first
week of practice the members on the team decided on
which positions they would like to play. During the
course of the next three weeks many men quit or were
cut from the team. The final cut was made three days
before the first game.
The first game was on February 8, against Canal
Zone College. The Bulldogs, edged out by one point,
suffered a d;co:uragqir defeat.

Every girl in intramural bowling spent long hours practic-
ing at this sport. During the bowling season a great number
of girls from B.H.S. could be found at the bowling alley,
trying to improve their game. Many of the girls that were
bowling in the eighties, at the beginning of the program,
were breaking one hundred by the end of the season.

Linda Rozzelle was one of the many girls that participated
in intramural bowling.

Barbara Lorenzen was the highest scorer in

National Honor Society

The National Society is a society to which relatively few
selected students belong. There are four criteria which a
student must meet before he can be considered for member-
ship: character, scholarship, leadership and service. Candi-
dates must have a good moral character; they must be truth-
ful, honest with themselves and others, and trustorthy. They
must maintain a 'B" (3.0) average or better. They must lead
others, not necessarily holding some kind of office, but
leading others by their own good example. They must also be
willing to support their school by joining clubs, participating
in athletics, drama, or other parts of school life. The students
who arg outstanding in these areas are chosen to be mem-
bers f'this society.

It is no easy task to capture the essence of a school year between

do this. Many hours of work after school, intensive study of the
esoteric art of journalism, and just plain sweat produce a yearbook.
Each year the staff, helped by many willing hands, faces its dead-
lines, grits its teeth, and plunges in. Each year the staff does the
seemingly impossible and encompasses another year in the history
of Balboa High.

Reserve Officers' Training Corps

The purpose of the Balboa High School Junior Reserve
Officer's Training Corps is to make its cadets into intelligent
citizens and to provide military training and knowledge for
a possible military future. The program is directed by the
professor of Military Science, who is assisted by four ser-
geants. The program lasts for three years; most cadets begin
in their sophomore year. During the course the cadets learn
leadership and discipline. They study such areas as cus-

toms of the service, map reading, marksmanship, military
courtesy, military history, and tactics. Competition is strong
in the R.O.T.C.: among individuals, among companies, and
the other R.O.T.C. schools. The R.O.T.C. is represented by
the Rifle Team in many matches, and it has now added a
girls' team. The Drill Team performs at all reviews and at
