Hurrah for 1940!
For the panda at the Fair;
For Mister Charles McCarthy,
Wisecracking on the air.

For Pinocchio the puppet,
And all his drollery;
For Master Kung Confucius,
And his philosophy.

Hurrah for all that's funny!
Though half the world be wrong,
For the Class of 1940,
May life remain a song!

Bunk is one of our air-minded boys who one
of these years will probably be disturbing classes
in CZJC by flying as low as possible over the
building. At present Bunk is taking an engineer-
ing course. One of his hobbies is collecting coins.
These certainly ought to come in handy some
day. In Bunk's estimation The Blue Danube is
tops.

Dear


Miss


Moody:


It was a pleasant surprise to
have a letter from you and the
editor of this year's Conquis-
tador. I was glad to know that
the yearbook was still very much
alive and kicking. However, any
contribution I might make will
be, I am afraid, too late for your
purposes, since your letter arriv-
ed on the doorstep with the
movers who were to move us
from one town to another. As
it is, I'm writing this perched on
a packing box.


You ask for something about what I've been doing since I left
CZJC and the Zone. As you know. I finished my college work at
the University of Iowa and was graduated from there in June,
1938, with a B. A. degree and a certificate in journalism. That
summer was spent resting, per doctor's orders, and for several
months after that I went job-hunting in newspaper work and
radio (in which I'd had training and some experience while at
Iowa).
Just as radio (in Boston, where I was living with my family)
was about to sign one of its most brilliant prospects for a voice
in dramatic crowd scenes, my interests in a job career-girl
species began to cool. For the usual reason.


In July, 1939, I was married
Unitarian minister, who had just

to Edward A. Cahill, a young

Eddie had as his first parish
Mass. He has just taken the
- which explains the movers.


So my history in the past nine months has consisted of the
usual harebrained attempts to learn to run a house. Of course,
being a minister's wife (properly, I mean) is a career in itself,
but someday I hope to get into journalism again in a small way.












Eddie is a minister in a liberal church denomination very
liberal and so we have a great deal of latitude in our choice
of interests. We have opportunities to hear many fine speakers
that we probably otherwise would lazily miss going to hear (for
a minister in a socially conscious church has to keep on his toes).
Then, too, we are only 25 miles from Boston and we get a chance
to attend some very good forums, take in a play every now and
then, and once in a while go out dancing.
Chelmsford is thus close enough to Boston to travel to. Should
any of my old Canal Zone friends and acquaintances ever land
in or about Boston (or Massachusetts, or New Hampshire, or
Maine) I'd be very much pleased to have visitors from the Zone
and catch up on what's been going on as well as renew old ac-
quaintanceships. (This invitation definitely does not exclude the
people I knew on the faculty).


At this moment I'd like to be right there in
with you people in the Zone. I'd like to be able t(

A dip into the past reveals
that it was two years ago that
we graduating sophomores of the
Canal Zone Junior College ex-
perienced those exciting inci-
dents that have stood out and
appeared so colorful in the mem-
ories of our J. C. life. Note-
worthy among those events was
that traditional Engineer vs.
Liberal Arts agitation that cul-
minated on the floor of our
Student Association meetings in
the famous "Banquet" discussion

April 12. 1940 To the Cla ss of 1940: I have b ee n asked to write a readabl e. chatty lette r. telling what the writer has been doing since he left the Canal Zon e Junior Colle ge, what his future plans are, and anything else h e mi ght wish to include." Now I don't think anybody i s too muc h interested in m y autobiography. so I will bp as bri e f as po ssi b le on that subj ect. In short. I enter ed Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Ma ss .. in S e ptembe r 1935 r eceive d m y B. S in June, 1938 searched uns uc cessfully for work until Nov ember, 1938 when I became employed b y the Lawre nc e Leath e r Co. of Peabod y Ma ss (near Sale m ). and a few months later was put in charge of t h e C h rom e Liquor D e p artment. which manufac ture3 the liquor u se d in the actu al tanning of the hides.

So much for that. and now for "anything else the write r might wish to include." If I were to take that literally. this letter would be interminabl e. but there are a few bits of advice that I would like to give and that I feel safe in g iving because I know that nobody w ill pay heed to them anyway. Fellers and gal s, you are completing what yo u will later l oo k back on as two of the happiest and dearest years of your lif e You have h a d fun that you will neve r find a n yplace e l se; you have made friends that you will never forget. But t here i s a noth e r a more important phase of life ahead of you. If yo u continue on in college. try to choose the course that will prepare you for whatever yo u want to follo w as your li fe's work That may sound fooli s h but too many times have I seen a student realize too late that h e is en rolled in the wrong course. J oin a fraternity or a sorority as the case may be, for it is there that you learn to liv e among others, and a l so learn that s h aring means a littl e g iving as well as taking. You w ill co m e to understand the other fello w's point of view, and that w ill h elp yo u to understand yourself better. S t ud y hard, but don't forget to get out and have fun, for with fun comes relaxation, and with relaxation comes the a bility to stud y harder. ( Vicious circle isn' t it?) And here' s a tip yo u can tak e for what it i s worth An hour's attention in class w ill save yo u two hours' home study. When you finally finish your sc h oo l days and get a job. don't be satisfied wit h t hat job. as good as it may be. Work your hardest at it. but k eep you r eyes open for a better opportunity. Start a b ank account; you will need it so metime And so on. In other words. try to plan a head! S o who am I to b e g ivin g advice? I'd better s ign off bu t before I do. as president and on behalf of the class of 1935, t h e first class ever to graduate from the C. Z J C .. I want to extend to the class of 1940 my sincerest congratulations and best wishes for health, happiness, and success. And w hen t h e going gets a little tough. stoP. and remember the old gang and the good times you had in Junio r College. and I ll bet yo u a secondhand anvil that lif e w ill l oo k a little r osier. With t hat I'll say au revoir, and h ope that I run into each one of you sometime, so meplace. V ery trul y yours, Fred B. Banan, Jr. P AGE SIXTYSIX CONQUISTADOR

Dalton Rd and Subway Ave Chelms ford Mass April 14, 1940 Dear Miss M oody: It was a pleasant surprise to h ave a letter from you and t h e editor of this year 's Conquistador.

Howeve r any contribution I mi ght make will b e I am afraid, too late for your purposes s inc e your letter arrive d on the doorstep with t h e mov e r s who were to mov e u s from one town to another.

A degree and a certif icate in journalis m That summer was s p ent resting, per doctor' s orders, and for several months after that I went job-hunting in newspaper wor k and radio (in which I'd had training and some experience while at Iowa ) Jus t as radio (in Boston. where I was livin g with my famil y ) was about to sig n one of its most brHiiant pro s pects for a voice in dramatic crowd scenes. m y interests in a job -car eer-girl s p ec ie s began to cool. For the usual reason. In July. 1939. I was marrie d to Edward A. Cahill, a you n g Unitarian minister, who h a d just been graduated fro m t h e Tufts Colle ge sc hool of religion in 1938 Eddi e had as his first parish the Unitaria n church in Clinton. Mass H e has just taken t h e church here in Chelmsford, Ma ss. which explains the movers. So my histor y in the past nine mont h s has consisted of t h e u sual harebrained attempts to learn to run a house. Of course b e in g a minister's wife ( properly, I mean ) is a career in itself, but someday I hope to get into journalis m again in a s m all way CONQU1STADOP. PAGE SlXTY SEVEN

Eddie is a minister in a liberal churCh denomination very liberal -and so we have a great deal of latitude ,in our choice of interests, We have opportunities to hear many fine speakers that we probably otherwise would lazily miss g 'oing to hear (fo r a minister in a socially conscious church has to keep on his toes). Then, too. we are only 25 miles from Boston and we get a chance to attend some very goo d forums. take in a play every now and then, and once in a while go out dancing. Chelmsford is thus close enough to Boston to travel to. Should any of myoid Canal Zone friends and acquaintances ever land in or about Boston (or Massachusetts, or New Hampshire, or Maine) I'd be very much pleased to have visUal'S from the Zone and catch up on what' s been going on as well as renew old acquaintanceships. (This invitation definitely does not exclude the people I knew on the faculty) At this moment I'd like to be right there in the warm sun with you people in the Zone I'd like to be able to laugh at the c razy people who have to live in a New England climate where it s nows rains. and hails when spring i s due.

ing back on the beginning of their coJlege career of an earlier day. Yes it is another June and the approach of another CoJlege graduation for me -this time from Stanford University, weJl known on the Pac.ific Coast as "the Farm" On June 16th I shall receive my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the Stanford School of Social Sciences. where I have majored in the three fields of his tory psychology, and sociology. Last year I was fortunate enough to live here on the campus at Lagunita Court. which is held to be one of the most beautiful women' s dormitories in the world. It is a University ruling that every woman student must, during her first year on the campus, live in a dormitory. This last year at Stanford I have had the opportunity of experiencing sorority life at the Tri Delta House. During my four years of college work I have been preparing myself to study librarianship eventually. At present I hope to be able to work at Yosemite National Park this coming summer and then enter the University of California Library School next fali. Already we have at Stanford a nice little group of former C Z. J. C. students. Those of the class of '37 will remember Ted Dombrowsky who did excellent work here last year but who reluctantl y transferred to Tulane University. I believe that George Shelton and I are the only representatives 01 the Junior College Class of '38. Georg e McFadden, an engineer of '39. came to Stanford this year. accompanied by Jean Irwin and Fernando Eleta, both of whom, I believe are classmates of the present graduating Sophomore c l ass When we all ge t together here on the campus it is with great pride and joy that we recall our beginnings at the "dear old C Z. J. C.' and we are hoping that from the present graduating class and from future classes there will come more classmates to increase the ranks of us students attempting to uphold the name of the Canal Zone Junior College at Stanford University.

Balboa, Canal Zone April 20, 1940 Dear Conquistador Staff: I r ece ived your letter asking m e to write a short answer telling about my future plans and what I a m doin g at prese n t. You mentioned an air mail stamp wh i c h you said you enclosed in m y letter. I didn't find it! I puzzled abou t that mi ss ing' air m ail stamp, which so m eo n e neglected to send me, for about a wee k until I decided that air mail stamps didn't g row on every bush i n P anama and that s inc e I wor k in the hig h school library, I must b e ex pected to send m y letter b y regular mail or take it to you myself. I didn't h a v e a chance to tak e it to you or even wr ite i t. fo r t hat matter until just about the time your editor started to threaten me if I didn't produce a letter soon. Still I procrastinated, but nothing saved me f ro m my consc i ence, which reminded me that I had be e n an editor of the Conquistador once, and I r emembe r e d how I u sed to have to hunt contributors and heckle them until I got their arti cles.. so I decided to write t h e letter. It seems rather s illy to admit that I h ave no d efinite future plans outside of the fact that I would iike to fini s h m y learnership in the high school library. That tak es care of m y next yea r then ...... ? Experience has taught me that when my plans f ail I have to rationalize to myself and make excuses to other p eople; so. after my p syc hology course in the C. Z. J. C., I d ec ided that rationalizing had its faults (es pecially i f one knew w hat rationalization" was ) and I stopped planning. B es id es, the present keeps me so b usy that the future u s u ally takes care of itse lf M y work in the high school library i s ve r y interesting and I enjoy working with book s, but a s it was in m y two yea r s of Junior College, I still can't find ti m e to read all the book s I want to. Seeing the Junior College students co m e into the libr a r y each day, I sometimes fee l as i f I am back in good old C. Z. J. C except that, of course I have no C. C. homework and T y p es of Literature to read.. all of which means that I get e ight hours of s le e p a night (a thing which I mi sse d in Junior College! ) I am sorry that my f u ture plans aren't more definite than they are, but PAGE SEVENTY.
