dynamics to receive a cable

sota, to perfect his knowledge of flying.
Immediately, he dropped this work, flew
back to the Isthmus and took over the arduous task of running a war-time school at
the crossroads of the world.
Under his guiding hand, the affairs of C.H.S. run
unselfishly given his all to serve the students and the community.
He and the entire
faculty work hard to realize the aim of the school of training students to take their
place in our changing society, able to become adapted to it socially, personally and

Before our very versatile counselor acquired his present job, in 1943, he was
a teacher of history.
Now his job is to act as adviser as well as teach mathematics.
His extra-curricular activities are to act as sponsor of the Dramatics Club and of the
C.H.S. Chapter of the National Thespian Society.
Many new improvements have been instituted in his department.
A list is kept

standing is kept for all four classes instead of only the senior class.
The idea of
sending forms to the parents showing progress or lack of progress and the possibility
of graduation was adopted.
New students entering C.H.S. can become more easily
acquainted with the school with the aid of a mimeographed handbook about the school.
The progress of each student is charted so that this information can be easily found.
Mr. Beck has unselfishly worked to straighten out
difficulties of students as to
their courses and has helped those who are planning to enter college by supplying in-
formation about various schools.
The seniors are very grateful for his guidance and help during their years in
Cristobal High School.

One of these unique features of the Canal Zone
Nowhere will one probably find a school whose early history was one of such or-

struction days and before the permanent organization for the Canal Zone was set up.
Not until the opening
of the school year in October, 1917, when the present elementary school building on Colon Beach was first
occupied after its completion, did a degree of permanence so necessary to progress begin.
September 1933 that building was Cristobal High School. Of course there were attached several frame build-
to be used for shop and domestic science courses.
These have since been torn down.
In September 1933
this present fine building was occupied.
Hence the class of 1933 was the first to graduate from it.
For those with a little of the pioneering spirit in them, it may be well to point out a few facts before

In 1910 the school was transferred to Gatun and in 1912 it was transferred to Ancon.
When the permanent organization of the Canal was
set up in 1914 the school remained at Ancon with a
branch in Cristobal where two years
work was offered.
Plans were immediately made however that resulted
in the first permanent high school on the Atlantic side

a student doesn't wish to continue his schooling, he may take an Apprentice-Learner course to prepare him-

These courses are so well planned and so well arranged that students finishing here may enter the Canal

ELEMENTARY WOOD WORK
An outstanding highlight for many of the high school stu-
dents is their participation in Health Education.
It has been said, "In learning to play together we can better
learn to work together."
The health education program for this year includes a little
of every sport played after school to give the students super-
vised practice in each sport. Exercises are given to strengthen
the muscles, straighten the shoulders, and help the boys to attain
"the built-up look" and aid the girls to lose those extra pounds
they dislike so much.
The aims of sports and health education in school could be
placed under the five following points: (1) Self development
of individuals; (2) Increase the sensitivity controls of the body;
(3) Build the powers and skills of the body; (4) Heighten
interest, attitudes and sportsmanship through sports; (5)
Appreciation and proper care of the body.
And why all this? Basically to provide the leadership and
facilities that will afford an opportunity for the individual or
group to act in situations which are physically wholesome,
mentally stimulating, and socially sound.

The aim of the National Honor Society is to make good citizenship in high schools
a matter of distinction. Its members must have the outstanding qualities of character,
service, leadership, and scholarship. These qualities developed in school should make
a better citizen of the graduate and he, in turn, will contribute more to his country.
The Caribbean Chapter is only four years old, but already its influence is being
felt. It is hoped that with the passing years this chapter's contribution to the Americas
will be very great.
The International organization of Quill and Scroll, which was launched in 1926 by a group of high school
advisers, is an honor society for the members of the
"Fourth Estate" in high schools all over the world.
The purpose of this group is to raise the standards of high school journalism and to stimulate interest
in journalistic endeavors.
The Cristobal High School Chapter of the National Quill and Scroll was organized in the school last
year with twelve charter members.
New members were added at lovely formal candlelight initiations twice during this school year. The
members of this chapter at present are Rosita Czernik, Dorit Berger, Helene Marsh, Jeannie Kuller, Lois
Householder, Ardith Boyle, Carolyn Magner, Patsy Benny. Harriet Keenan, Barbara Millard, Janet Fowler,

AThe Torrid Zone Wizards has been a part of Cristobal High School since
I *1942, when this club was founded. The great importance of this organization
lies in the fact that it is affiliated with the Science Clubs of America.
iTo be eligible for membership in this important group one must possess
two very essential qualifications:
1. High scholastic standing
2. An active interest in science
The club benefits the student, in one way, by serving as an opportunity to develop life-long friends
through its activities. Membership in the Wizards provides an incentive for scientific thought and the solving
of perplexities arising from all phases of this vast, explorable field.
Through the untiring efforts and good sound advice of Mr. Maedl, the sponsor of the Torrid Zone
Wizards, this organization has grown until it has achieved a fine degree of success.
The officers upon whose shoulders rests the responsibility of safeguarding and upholding the club's
ideals are: President, Patsy Benny; Vice-President, Lois Householder; Secretary, Edward Corbett, and
Treasurer, Ruth Muckle.
The amount of activity which a club portrays is the characteristic that either makes it or breaks it!
The science club members went on several delightful and interesting excursions during the year. The
first was to Gatun Locks where the members received the rare opportunity of having the intricate machinery
of the locks explained to them. The most interesting part of the excursion was the examination of the control
tower. It contains a miniature of the locks showing the progress of a ship from its entrance into the locks to its
safely conducted exit.
The slaughter house was extremely interesting, because no matter how often we see meat on our tables
we rarely stop to think about what took place before it finally reached us in its present state. The answer to
this practical question was reached, not by plowing through dozens of text books, but by actually seeing
the processes involved.
There are three additional places located here in the Canal Zone that the Wizards in all probability will
have a chance to view.
The first is a trip to San Rita Mountains where the science club has never been as long as it has been
in existence. This is the main reason why Mr. Maedl, after exploring through the mountains proposed it
as an ideal outing for the club.

Every science student learns about the principle of buoyancy. This will be
recalled when they go down into a submarine for their excursion in order to
apply the principle of buoyancy.
A trip will be made to Summit Gardens, the most cultivated experimental
gardens on the Isthmus. The Wizards will have an opportunity to see hundreds
of different kinds of plants that are grown in this tropical climate. A lecture
will be given by an official from the United States Department of Agriculture
on this topic.
More than enough has been said about the knowledge that these activities
will give to the club members, but it would be a grave error not to say that the
purpose of these excurisons is to give real pleasure.
The Hurricane is the monthly publication of the Torrid Zone Wizards. Its
editor is Marilyn Metzger who is ably assisted by the club members. The Hur-
ricane was begun this year and has a fine outlook for the future. The majority
of articles deal with the different topics taken up in the General Science, Biology,
Chemistry an'd Physics classes.
There are five aims of this fine organization which each member endeavors
to live up to with the best of his ability.
Barbara Millard and Alice Benthall
To increase our knowledge of science.
To learn to perfect our skills in science.
To give service in our community and nation.
To understand the importance of science in our lives.
To help carry out the program of science clubs of America.

To think of physical education at Cristoba
High School is to speak of the aims and objec-
tives to be taught so as to attain maximum performance during the school years, and in addition,
to provide the
values so necessary for the better life in the future.
Our major aim in this field, then, is to educate the individual
motor activities which, of the greatest import, tends to focus the place of that person in his inter-
relationship in the society, and only of incident brings forth a proficiency in a variety of skills.
Football is the leading sport of this school, the season lasting from the opening of school
This is followed by softball,
archery and tennis are minor sports at the present.
The Cristobal High School Tigers completed one of the most successful seasons in recent
years by virtue of three straight triumphs over the Alumni, the Junior College and Balboa High.
After trampling the Alumni 28-0 in the opening prep game,
squeeze by the Junior College 2-0.
The only score in the game came late in the fourth quarter.
A thirty-yard dash by halfback Hilton McPheters, and two passes carried the ball to the College
five-yard line. Then Captain Gibson faded to pass again, but Standefer, College captain and quar-
terback, intercepted the ball on his
own one-yard line, and he was hit for a safety as he stepped
back into his own end zone.
then the game suddenly exploded in all its fury in the final period.

The Pacific siders attempted to punt the
of the ball, blocking the kick. In the ensuing mad scramble for the pigskin, little Ed Pipkin finally
fell on the ball in the Raider end zone for a Cristobal touchdown.

With the ball on the

The Balboa game was a dul

Jack Baldwin, speedy wing back, who had slipped through the secondary, took the ball on the dead
run and raced the remaining yards unmolested for a touchdown.
Dedeaux split the uprights for

On the first play from scrimmage following the Balboa kickoff Gibson faded to pass. Stand-
ing on his own ten, he sighted Hilton McPheters racing down the sidelines, and cocked his arm to
It was a long, high fifty-yard pass, and McPheters leaped high in the air in an attempt to
outjump two Raider backs in the fight for the ball.

The extra point was blocked, but it didn't matter, and Cristobal High came out
on the long end of the score, 13-7.
The "B" Leaguers again did what is getting to
score was only 7-0, but the plucky eleven outplayed the heavier Balboa aggregation most of the
game on a rain-soaked Strode Field.
After blowing Balboa High School right out of their own ball park, 20-0,
the Cristobal High School Tigers just managed to squeeze by the Junior College,
3-2; but, never-the-less, they captured the Isthmian Interscholastic softball
championship under the able direction of Coach Luke Palumbo.
Led by such stars as Noel Gibson, G. G. Thomas, and Jack Haywood, and with Big Jim Fernandez on
the mound, the C.H.S. ten was unbeatable.
The Balboa game is indescribable, as the Cristobal runners dented the plate time and again, until
they fairly drove it into the earth, but the College game was a thriller. With the score tied at two all, and
one out in the last half of the seventh, Noel Gibson lashed a solid single to center for Cristobal. The next
batter, Gay Thomas, knocked one off the second baseman's glove, which rolled to the outfield. The short-
fielder, Robinson, bobbled the ball and Gibson made the turn at third. Robinson then threw the ball home
for no apparent reason, and when the sphere took a bad bounce over the catcher's head, Gibson crossed
the plate with the winning marker.
The "B" League boys did not play the Balboa "B" Leaguers. Apparently the Pacific siders were still
smarting from last year's 19-0 football score debacle and refused to even pick up a bat. Here's hoping that
the Balboa "A" Leaguers who also lost by "three touchdowns" this year, don't follow their example next year.
Cristobal High School's hard-hitting baseball team continued to reign as one of the classiest nines
on the Isthmus.
Boasting several Atlantic Twilight League Stars in the line-up, the roster was packed with power from
stem to stern. The steady Buckeye Swearingen was behind the plate, G. G. Thomas on first, Gibby Gibson,
Lou Hooper on third, and the speedy McPheters at short. The outer garden was well taken care of by Al
Maale in left, Jackie Haywood in center, and little Smiley Cadava in right. Billy Pretto, on the mound,
more than handled the pitching chores.
The "B" League nine also was one of the strongest squads ever put forth by the smaller lads. Stars of
the nine were: Jerry Stringer, Jack Pescod, Lanky Flores, Buddy Thomas, Bob Gibson, Larry Horine, Sonny
Templin, Tom Dorgan, Pinky Pincus, George Egolf, and Freddy Templin.
Cristobal's 1946 basketball edition which battled the Balboa Red Raiders

Haywood was still in the back court, along with Al Maale and McPheters.

The Caribbean staff of the Journalism department has presented you with its best efforts in this copy of
the year book.
It has been produced with the sweat and tears, if not the blood, of all its members.
Because the school schedule was arranged so as to allow only two periods per day for writing both the
paper and the year book, the members of the Journalism classes have worked two hundred hours over-time
to produce the Trade Wind and Caribbean.
To add to their troubles as writers, the same group had to raise the funds to pay for publishing their
efforts because there was no faculty member available to act as business adviser.
The two small classes took stock of all assets, however, and decided that over-time work and the wear-
ing out of shoe-leather might do the trick, and they put their collective shoulders to the wheel and went to
They carried unfinished articles home, they visited many potential advertisers, they collected
and they used reams of paper and much ink.
Things were going along well when January rolled around.
Copious tears were shed at the semester's end when the staff lost five "old-timers
' by graduation and
by schedule changes.
Only three students with previous training in Journalism remained.
Nothing daunted, the classes worked on helped by an infusion of new junior blood and the Caribbean
finally went to press with all dummies, montages and writing done with meticulous care.
If your copy has not reached you as soon as you would have liked, remember the time was always too
short for the job and all work had to make a round-trip to the U.S.A.
We are indebted to the Southern Engraving Company and the St. Petersburg Printing Company, Inc.,
both of St. Petersburg, Florida, for the excellence of the engraving and printing.
The excellent pictures
used were taken by Allison
's Studio, of Colon.
Anyway, we hope your pleasure in the Caribbean is as great as ours has been in the making of it.
