Tropical


Co ll egia n


Under gayer covers and with a new but well-seasoned editor,
Gail Haldeman, the Tropical Collegian embedded itself further in
the traditions of the J.C. this year.


The most successful number of the year was the April Fool's
edition, while honors for outstanding work during the year went
to Shirley Grossman. The new Joke Department, edited by
Helen Dryden, was very successful. A standard method for judg-
ing the success and efficiency of the monthly issues was devised by
Mr. Hackett.

The staff members of the year 1938-39 were as follows:

and


activities this past year. Most notable was the talk given by Mr.

engineering work in Central and South America. Mr. Buckley's
famous Christmas lecture on the esthetic appreciation of beauty,
in which he derived the equation that the intensity of the esthetic
appreciation of beauty is proportional to the symmetry ot the
object divided by the complexity ot the object, has been of great
benefit to the Engineers in aiding them to discover and appreciate
things of beauty outside of the Junior College as well as in the
halls.
Last year the Engineers voted to buy pictures of famous
scientists to be hung in various places in the Junior College. This

another asserted, "I'm a Municipal Engineer in charge of con-

If the Engineers were only dependent upon self-preservation,
they would endure forever. Even though there are many other
factors upon which the Engineers are dependent, their qualities
of physical, social, and intellectual proficiency will help them all
to realize a successful engineering career.

This year, the College was again divided into two teams,
namely: Freshmen and Sophomores.
The Frosh, having more man power, had a better record
against the High School than did the Sophomores. Both teams
broke even in their games with each other and with the Working
Boys.
The annual game with Cristobal High was called off. (Board

While swimming was going on, the College Varsity Club,
consisting of nine college girls, led by Ruth Bauman, played a
series of games of volley ball. They played several games against
the girls' team of the Balboa High School, and emerged victorious.
Three times the C.V.C.'s defeated the Cristobal High School
team. Then, to show their superiority, the girls challenged the
Engineers to two games, and won one of them.
