And worries histrionic mamas.

I had worked my way through high school a nd then t hrou g h co llege. With s r a ndard wages at thirty cents per hour my a ccounts were deeply in the red. In desperation I h a d packed all the required te ac hin g courses into my senior schedule. ComNred to m y sc ien ce work, the h azy, haphazard te aching courses seemed hopeles s l y ga rbled.

THE CLASS OF 1944 By W INIFRED KILEY At the first meeting of the year the class of 1944 e lected the following officers: Robert Bel an d president; James Phil lips vice-president; H ele n Ramey, secretary; and Margaret Con sidine rreasur er. Mr. Vinton was chosen the class sponsor. Class meetings we r e called frequently and discussions were held motions were passed, a nd action was taken regarding caps a nd gowns, class rings and individual graduation pictures. In Dec e mber the sophomores (and their yo-yos) gathered together for a party a t which they ate yo-yoed, and made m e rry to the satisfaction of all. The sophomores (naturally the more learned and intel ligent portion of the student body ) defeated the freshmen in the quiz program sponsored by the Student Association in Nov ember. On April th e 15 the sophomores with the financial assist ance of the Student Association, gave a college dance at the Horel Tivoli. Dick Little's orchestra provided the music. Dramatics were enriched this year by sophomore staging and act in g In this field honorable mention is hereby given to Virginia Keenan Robert Beland Burton Wright, Philippa Rosales and Fred Brugge Barbara Williams, Philippa Rosales Fred Brugge, a nd Rob e rt Beland were initiated into Delta Psi Omega honorary dramatics society, during the course of the year while Helen Ramey has been a member of this organiza tion since her first year in college. Contrary to freshmen canards this year's sophomore m e n wer e nor perturbed by rumors of impending induction bur in stead were noticeably impatient for g raduation a nd their en tr ance into the a rmed services PAG E S IXTFEN CONQUISTADOR

Early in October, the Executive C o uncil mapped out the different activities of the year adopting the slogan "An SA a ctiviry every m o nth. In conformiry wirh this pr og r a m the fir s r event was the quiz contest between the intellectu als of both classes. As might have been expected, the sophomores won the contest-though only by the slight margin of five points! On November 5 the annual SA dance was held at the Hote l Tivoli, with music furnished by the Fort Kobbe "Crossroaders." The lecture room was the scene of a lively Christmas p a rty with plenty of games and refreshments. The J a nuary activity was very successful. A water pageant entitled 'The Wrath of W a runa," was given at the Balboa swimming pool on Friday, J a nuary 7, before a capacity crowd. The pageant was directed by Mr. John Komp. Afterward a dance w a s held at the B a lboa Gymnasium. Much credit is due to the hard-work ing students who either took p arr in the p ageant itself or served as members of the numerous committees. On February 26, practically every member and several faculty members and their wives enjoyed a n all-day outing at the hacienda of rhe family of Manuel J acome. Swimming in Chiquita Pool a softball game between the boys and girls, a nd various indoor games marked the activities of the day, plus a never-ending supply of food a nd cokes. The annual dr a m a tic production was the March activiry The play presented was Vivacious Lady," and four perfo rmances were given -twO at Balbo a and tWO at CristObal. The fre s hm a n-sophomore banquet sponsored by the SA, was held at the Hotel Tivoli on April 26. A d a nce followed the banquet. This affair was successfully h a ndled by the freshm a n class under the capab l e direction of Tom Gregory. At the awards assembly on May 19, the SA gave suitab l e sportS a wards to tr.e outstanding girl a nd boy athletes. All in all, the Student Association had a highly successful year.

PSYCHOLOGY By D E RRY A NELLIS . And we of Mr. H a ckett s psychology class are indebted to Col o nel Hesner a nd his medi ca l st a ff for Our conscientious l y conducted tour of the C o r o z a l Ins a ne Asylum Upo n inspecting the meticulous hospital we found the oper a tion efficient a nd the b o nd between staff members a nd inmates all gratify ingly humanita ri a n Little was s aid a mong the students before the trip concerning o ur I. Q.'s or o ur menta l stability. After our l essons in animated psychol og y h o wever subtle g lances fla shed knowingly between certain par ties of the Junior College. Wha t those secretive and telepathic flashes a ctu a lly me ant is toO profound a question to be considered here. (There i s no l a w a g a inst using one s imagin a tion though is there?) But each a nd every o ne of us vigorously denounced the ide a that any similariry berween schizophrenics a nd us was not purely coincidental!! TYPING By ANA PETERSON If o ne should pass the typing room about the middle of each month, he might hear a chorus of moans from the students To those un a c quainted with this cl ass, such a scene would require some explana tion. Since our class does all of the stenci l s for the Tropic a l Collegian e a ch m onth finds us with a pile of blue stencils a nd feeling very blue o urselves Stenciling-stenciling-it is the same old story over and e ver a g a in nine consecutive times throughout the year. But one time, we nearly g a ve Mr. Lyons a f a tal shock. Miss Swenson was giving in s tructi o n s for a speed test and n a turally, tests a re the bane of all s tudents Mr. Lyo ns saved the d a y by appe aring at the cru c ial moment with hi s s ten c iling m a teri als. Our cooper a tive gtoup he a ved a deep sig h a nd turned h a ppy countenances toward his person Mr. Lyons some wh a t timidly ask e d Miss Swenson if it were possible for her class to co mplet e so me ru s h s tenciling a proposal to which she a greed. The se n se o f relief a nd gra titude in our eyes startled him immensely. If Miss S wen so n h a d n ot expl a ined o ur unusual e a gerness to cut stenci l s Mr. Lyon s p ro b a bly w o uld never h ave rec overed fully Why is it th a t human b e ings are afraid of s pe cia l tasks a nd yet are on l y toO happy to take t' n th ese duti es in pr e f e r e n c e to e ven more unpleas ant ones?

CHEMISTRY By PAUL FEDDE The chemistry laboratory liter a lly opened with a bang in Sep. tember 19 43. During the se c ond lab sessio n a fly was shot o ff the ceiling by a rubber stopper when a hydrogen generator exp l oded. On being questioned by Mr. Vinton the student involved was e ntirely to account for this rea ctio n to his experiment. Mr. Vinton p o int. ed Out that he kn ows m any less expensive ways o f s c a rin g flie s o ff the ceiling. Throughout the year the he avy p all th a t a t times seemed to hang over the l a b was punctuated by the staccaro report of a broken beaker or flask. Immediately the chorus would recite "It didn t bounce did it? recalling our high school chemistry lab in which Mr. Fischer a l ways asked this questi on whenever a careless student dropped s o me glassware. Several times during the year Mr. Vint o n h ad to intercede in the running battles that were carried o n among the l ab t ab les. For these battles wash bottles were the equipment of the mobile f o rce, while the a rtillery consisted of pipettes co nnected by means of rubber tubing to the water m a in. Since juSt getting one s opponent wet was not enough h o wever blow g uns became standard equi pment f or one fac tion. These glass tubes shooting BB shot were capable of mu ch greater accuracy and range than the wash bottles With these improved weapons non combatants soon were being fired up o n The fear of veto actio n by the teachers caused these weapons to be abando ned however.
