THE CON Q U I STADO R 1943 V olume VIII -.. > I I I .1 1 I ,.1 PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENT ASSOCIA nON of t h e CANAL ZONE JUNIOR COLLEGE

PAGE 8

FOREWORD From the staff o f the C onqu istador 1943 edition to their fellow students, gree tings! Since Pearl H arbo r a year a nd a h a lf have passed. Our country grows more a nd more absorbed by war as the days go by. Like many other institutions, the Canal Zone Junior College has reeled under the impact of the conflict. Some of our students and prospecti ve s tudents have entered the armed services; others t aking advantage of the a bund a nt employment opportunities of wartime, have accepted positions with the Panama Canal. The rela tively few s tud ents who have remained in college, or who entered it for the first time last September, have in some ways found the year an abno:ma l one. Enrollment has fluctu a ted and classes have been small. Students have found it difficult to concentrate on studies. The departure of some ('of the members of our f acu lty bec a u s e of wartime conditions, has changed the Junior College scene. Jus t as the C onquis t ador goes to press, comes official confirmation of the res i g n a tion of Mr. Floyd Buckley, In s tructor in Physical Sciences in the college since 1936. On April I, he goes to Washin gton, D. C, to be a physicist in the Navy Department While we greatly regret lo s ing him, his place will be a bly filled by Mr. K. W. Vinton, who is being transferred from the Cristobal High School to the college By such replacements, and by the increased individual attention the in s tructors now find it possible to give their students, the academic losses s uffered by the college are l a r gely compensated f or. Extra-curricular activities h ave abo lagged, however and here there have bee n f ewe r compensations Consequently the C onquistador, whic h is l arge l y a record of club and social affairs, h a s less to record thi s year th a n usu al. Nevertheless we the staff have tried to give you a record th a t you will cherisl1. EVfn in sombe r shadow of war surely there can be no wrong in com m emora ting the sunny interludes of one's college lif e To you th e n fri e nds, a nd e s pecially to the Class of 1943, good reading good luck, and goodby!

THE CLASS OF 1944 At the fir s t meeting of the class o f 1 944, William Fitzgerald was elected president John Wohlfarth, vice-president, Kathleen Boni secierary, a nd Georgia Butler treasureL Mr. Hackett, Chairman of the bculty, appointed Mr. Buckley class adviseL Fitzgerald l ater was lured trom th e presidency by gold (job to you), and Georgia Butler relin quished th e keeping of o ur accounts in favor of a trip to the altar. \VIe were conso led in this latter loss by Harry Chan's acceptance of the office of treasurer for the rest of the year. As for the presidency John Wohlfa rth s t epped up and the vice-pre side ncy was left vacant Business meetings of the class were few, but perhaps the lack of s uch meetings may be acccunted for by the activity of the freshmen in Other fields The freshmen n o t o nly con stituted a majority on the f,)Otbali field but also did yeoman service in other ways as well. In the play give n by the class in dramatics in the Extension Division of the college, freshmen st udent s h eld the leadi n g roles. Many freshmen write-ups appea r ed in the Tropic(/l Collegian. Finally-most st ri king f a ct of all-the editorship of the Conquist(/dor, which is supposedly primarily a sophomore publication, went to a freshman L et us hope this class may be even more active next year.

I should have stayed at home with books, And th a t might have improved my l ooks. The point is, I don t know what s what And Prof. will have me on the mat, Reminding me I'm juSt a dope Who should have learned how to 50ft-soap. Well, God that bell has swee tly pealed, So don t forget that I've appea led To y o u for aid. Don't let me down C a u s e I don t like that teacher's ftown!

THE STUDENT ASSOCIAT10N The Studenr Association is the most importanr organization In the Junior College. It s purpose is to spo nsor and unify the socia l a lhletic j c urn alist ic, a nd dramatic a ctivities o f the college, so th at all smdenrs may particip3te in a nd enjoy them Two years ago it was decided by th e faculty that unless eighty per cenr o f th e college s tudenr s joined the Studenr Association it s h ould 1I0t be org a nized a nd this rul e still h o lds The officers f o r 1942-4 3 were Adrian B ouc he, pre s idenr J a mes Ph i llips, vice-pre s i dem, H a rry Cha n tre asurer, a nd Eleanor Sulliv a n s ecretary. Mr. M cNai r was the adv is er. The pres;denr's first duty, of cc ur s e wos to enli s t members. After a period of s u s pense during which the s tudenr s were urged by mean s of bOth formal a nd inform a l argumenr to join the org a niz ation, the college came throu g h with flyin g co l ors. Almo s t everyone was persuaded to join. This achievemenr was the more praiseworthy In that be cause of the s mall enrollmenr of the college, th e dues had t o b e raised from five dollars to s ix a nd one-half. As in pas t years, the Lr s t socia l a ffair of the association was a dance h eld after the facuity reception for the studenrs. After the reception which took place on the evening o f O c tober 2 in rhe library of the new B a l boa Hig h School building the s tudenr s wen: upstairs to the Music Room f or the dance. On the evenin g of Dece mber 1 8, the association held another d a nce, thi s time a t the Ancon Masonic Temple. This dance was the occas:on of the last public eng ag emenr 0f the Fifth Infa nrry Orchestra. The Studenr Associat ion sponsored the production of The M oon il D own, by John Steinbeck which was presenred on M a rch 10 a nd J 2. by members o f the class in dramatics in the Juni o r C 01lege Exten s ion Division. This prc duction is described elsewh ere in thi s bo ok. As the yearbook goes to press, the assoc iati o n is planning a dance ior May 7, to be h eld at the Tiv oli HOtel On M a y 14, th e a nnu a l banquet will be held a t the Union Club as u s u a l this will be f ollowed b y a dance A worth while project of the Studenr Asso c i atio n this year has been the sale of War Stamps.
