A freshman may casually decide to join

Aspiring to make the first string of the
football team, a determined freshman may
apply himself to a year of practice and
study, and yet he may not play in one game.
If he pursues his .goal in his sophomore year
he may see action for only five or ten min-
utes all season. By the time he is a junior,
he may have acquired the skill and season-
ing to become a valued member of the team.
Perhaps he may not secure a key position
in the starting lineup until he is a senior.

CRISTOBAL JUNIOR-SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL: One of two U.S. high schools operated by the Civil Affairs Bureau of
the Canal Zone Government.
MR. MAEDL PAYS TRIBUTE TO TIGER SPIRIT
Cristobal High School has long enjoyed a reputa-
tion for having an exceptionally fine school spirit.
This has been in evidence not only at athletic con-
tests but in many -other areas of school life as well.
As one example, this past year the seniors ex-
pressed the desire to obtain for themselves additional
privileges in school and during the lunch hour. To I-
show that they understand that responsibility must
accompany privilege, they appointed a committee
which carefully worked out a code of conduct which
they would adhere to and which they felt would be
acceptable to the school and the community. The ad-
ministration not only accepted the guidelines the stu-
dents had set up, but applauded them for their
achievement and for the fine spirit in which they had .
carried it out.
This is the Tiger Spirit at its very best. It is hoped
that in the future years there will continue to be even CAR'
greater demonstrations of this spirit. jA L
CARL F. MAEDL
MR. CARL F. MAEDL will long be remembered
for his dedication to the students and to education

lege in Moorhead, Minnesota, and played football

port, North Dakota, and Sauk Rapids, Minnesota,
before coming to Cristobal in the fall of 1938.
Mr. Maedl met his wife Alfhild at Sauk Rapids

were married in August, 1938, in Minneapolis.
At CHS Mr. Maedl taught 7th and 9th grade

Counseling was the primary guidance service pro-
vided at CHS. In the student-counselor relationship
the student freely expressed his ideas and feelings
and the counselor showed how interest, aptitudes,
and abilities work together.
Through various activities the counselors provided
information about careers and the various opportun-
ities for post-high school education. They provided
facts about the many available technical schools, ap-
prentice programs, and vocational programs. They as-
sisted students in selecting colleges, applying for
admission, and applying for financial aid.
The guidance center also administered standardized
tests and College Entrance Board exams such as the
PSAT, SAT, and the ACT.

pf human relationships and civic responsibility.

certain scholastic courses.
Excellent reading skills are required for aca-
demic success. The remedial reading program at
CHS provided special instruction to improve read-
ing skills and help assure a student of success in
keeping with his ability. Seemingly average stu-
dents have improved the quality of their reading
skills and thereby became quite outstanding stu-

personality and character. To some degree everyone
needs to be creative.

All of us, regardless of age or occupation, come
in daily contact with business. Students need to
understand business as it functions in our economic
system. We are all obligated to society to produce
the needed goods and services, and to ourselves to
earn a satisfactory income.
The above were some of the ideas students under-
stood after taking General Business. The CHS com-
merce program offered the student many vocational
and personal opportunities. College bound students
benefited especially by learning typing skills.

In the high school Introductory Physical Science
provided the student with a solid foundation for more
advanced courses. The student studied the means by
which scientific knowledge is acquired.
Biology stressed the relationship of all living
things in respect to their chemical and physical en-
vironment. Chemistry taught the atomic theory and
the nature of matter. Physics provided a study of mat-
ter and energy and their interactions. It also provided
practical applications of these concepts and princi-
ples in problem solving.

Involved in the social activities of
his school, a high school student ad-
vances a step as a human being when
he learns to accept all manner of
things that are totally different from
what his past experience makes easy
to understand and like. A high school
society abounds with difference; it
not only offers the possibility of be-
coming tolerant, it makes it almost
impossible to ignore its lesson.
THUNDEROUS RAIN ACCOMPANIES
FRESHMAN SOPHOMORE BRAWL
With enthusiasm, the girls express their competitive spirit.
It was a rainy day and the field was muddy as the Fresh-
men and Sophomores competed on September 2, 1969.
Challenging cries were heard after school as each class
prepared for "battle." The girls screamed, the boys shouted,
and the "battle" was begun. The mud rose high to cover legs
When the commotion subsided, the scores were tallied and
the Sophomore Class was declared the winner. The defeated
Freshmen, however, were already making future plans to
win at next year's brawl.
It isn't every day that we get to chase a giant ball of "yarn."

ANNUALL FOOTBALL JAMBOREE
September 19, 1969 marked the twentieth time Canal
Zone College and Balboa High School crossed the fifty
miles of the isthmus to participate in the Football Jam-
Preluding the game, the Jamboree Queens were pre-
sented to the crowd from their reserved area in the grand-
stand. Cristobal's lovely queen was Ann Hirons.
The game was played in a constant downpour. In the
first quarter Balboa and College fought to a scoreless
tie. Amidst thunderous cheers, Cristobal defeated Balboa
in the second quarter 18 to 0, but in the final quarter
College downed Cristobal 6 to 0.
This year, for the first time, the winner was deter-
mined by the number of quarters won instead of the total
points scored. College won the Jamboree by winning one
quarter and tying one. Cristobal came in second by win-
ning one quarter and Balboa came in last losing one
quarter and tying one.
Coach ,Agee and Coach Dedeaux express anxious moments
along with the rest of the team.

GARY ROBERTSON WINS S.A. PRESIDENCY
In April the S.A. held its annual Election Day. For several
weeks previous to the event, campaign posters hung from every
available space in the building. Hectic weeks they were for any stu-
dent running for office. Campaign speeches, passing out booster
tickets, promises of change, and making their stand known to the
student body were some of the preoccupations of the candidates. A
competitive atmosphere prevailed adding to the excitement as elec-
tion day grew near.
Amidst the confusion however, we successfully elected our S.A.
officers without any incidents. The results were satisfying to the stu-
dent body which for the 1969-70 school year elected Gary Robertson
President, Robert Philips Vice-President, Denise Ward Secretary,
and Nelson Escribano, Treasurer.
Candidate Wendy Flores is assisted by Susan
,'and Cinda Helmericks.
