Foreword In this the 1946 Co nqzt istador we honor those men who, either directly or indirectly, have been responsible for the existence of the Canal Zone Junior College. Throughout the following pages you will find a few of these people portrayed in drawings and in writings. As you will readily see, these gallant cab alleros are depicted in a somewhat ridicu l ous fashion; however the staff has no intention of divesting our founders of their dignities with these verses and ill usrrations. It is hoped that you will enjoy the foll owing pages and will cherish the memories of your years in C.Z.].c. LUKE STANDEFER FOR TH E STAFF OF THE CONQUISTADOR P A G E T W O CONQ U I STADOR

CLASS PROPHECY, 1946 BY OBDUllA WRIGHT "Women! Women! I hate women! Tearing his hair out by the hand ful Professor R obert Finch was led ::.way into a deep, d a rk, d amp cell in Dr. Holm g ren's Happy Home for Helpless H a lfwits a nd Highly Hilarious Hypochondriacs, the cell from which we had just been discharged as com J letely cured. Our chains cla nking we srop ro say goodbye to m any friends. 1 here in a barren dungeon lies a sad case. Poor Ralph Zimmermann has at l ast succumbed ro the Pluscuamperfecto Progresico Subjunc tivo. Jack Sta nde f e r still thinks he is president, and so every five minutes h e picks up his gavel, hits Norma Johmton on the head and calls the meeting ro order. Eddie Eisenhauer sits on his high chair and draws plans (,n how ro see the other side of a wall Suddenly the great inspiration come s-a light bulb appears over his head and in Morse Code blinks J ut "J've got it at last! Walk around it!" The creative genius of Bitry F 1emley has at l ast come ro light in the way of a new hair style; the hair is shaved comp letely off the head except fat two cu rls which are left dangling over the ears As we turn ro leave this gha srly dungeon In which we h a d been imprisoned for ten years, a s trange cry greets out ears. Seated in an iron cage is a man who lo oks s tran gely familiar. Could it be-no--yes-no-it is Georges Bouche. A turb a n is wrapped around his head and in his arms he is cuddling a crystal ball. As we approach >tis cage he screams, "Hell o, hello there! Then he sticks his head t hrou g1 : he bars and whispers, You are my friends you will help me! I will JO anything for you if you will only help me escape from this terrible age." "Will you t ell G ur fortun es?" we ask, eying his Lrystal ball. Yes a nd th ose of your friends roo, if you wish." Oh yes," we cry. Can you t e ll us what they will be doing a yeat from now? Peering into his cryst a l b all, Georges begins speaking in a l ow eerie voice, with a girlish giggle n ow and then bre a king the monorony. First we will go ro Hollywood, year 19 58 and visit the D aily Tropical Collegiate Bree z e which has bec o me the foremost newspaper of America under th e guidance of ediror Patricia Kennedy. Looking at roday's head iines we notice th a t Mr. I Lyons our pal in the good old days, is still harping away a t brief forms study. The only trouble is that his students take him lit erally and study their forms (shorthand, of course) very briefly On the sportS page the headline is 'CZ.JC WINS PENNANT!! The old tradition is being carried on, we see. As we leave the building we see Ed Welch f a lling down a flight of stairs. An inquisitive Norma asks, 'Did you miss the stairs?' and poor Ed replies coyly, 'Oh, no I only missed the first one! I hit a ll the re5! coming down! "Next we go to Washington, D.

THE STUDENT ASSOCIA nON On September 12, the first Student Association meeting of the new s chool year was held in Room 313. Mr. Lyons, adv iser of the Student Asso,iation for the preceding year, presided ove r the meeting until the pte side nt was elected. The officers chosen for the year were John Sundefer, p resident ; Norma JohnstOn vice-ptesident; Alice Fairbrother, secretary; J ames Lakas treasurer. The governing body of the associa tion known "s the Student Executive Council, is m ade up of the association officers, and the presidents and vice-presidents of the twO classes Mr. McNa ir waS elected adviser. The year's activities gOt under way with ninety-five per cent of s tudents entolled parrici pating in the S A One of the first duties of the club was the election of the editOrs a nd business managers of the yearbook and the monthly magazine, which are sponsored by the association. The first social activity of the school calendar was a swimming pare y which was held a t the Balboa-Amador Road U.S.O. on September 28. After the swimming parry, refreshments and informal dancing followed at the S A. Club. In OctOber a sportS parry was held in the gymnasium. The faculty played the girls all-star volleyball team and a quiz contest between the bculty and the students followed. The students put up a good fight but th e faculty managed to win by a narrow margin. The game for the boys' ping-pong championship was also played at this parry. "FitO" Midencc and "Nano" Carrera showed their skill in this fast game. Nano Carre ra, however, managed to defeat "FitO" Midence. One of the biggest events of the year was the Christmas dance which was held on December 21 at the Hotel Tivoli. A Christmas tree, di!11 lights sweet music, rustling formals-all blended to create the de sired atmosphere. Even St. Nicholas (John Moynihan ) was present with gifts-paper hats and noisemakers for everyone. The spring activities of the Student Association included the regul a r Awards Day assembly a picnic at Gorgona Beach a hay-ride and the soci a l climax of the year, the graduation banquet held at the Hotel Tivoli on May 29.

THE NATURAL SCIENCE SOCIETY If you hear somebody running around in the halls and mumbling something about Indian sign l anguage, bears, and dead Mexican hawks you can be fairly certain that he is a member of the Natural Science Society. The Narural Science Society had a vety fine group this year. They met twice a month on Tuesday evenings at seven o clock the a verage attendance being a round eighteen. At the first meeting on September 16, the following officers were elected: president Ralph Zimmermann ; vice-president Helen Eerman; secretary -tr easurer Cecily Sherk. The group heard lectures on a wide range of tOpics. The usual pl a n was to have an outside speaker once a month and a member of the society itself once a month Among the outside speakers were such distinguished men as Lieutenant R. Ruhle, of the national park service, and Mr. Fred Whaler, an authority on deeps ea fishing. Up to March 6, the following speakers ilad addressed the group on the topics indicated: September IS-Ra lph Zimmermann: The Electronic Microscope OctOber 2 Mr. Fred Whaler: Deep-Sea Fishing OctOber 16 VictOr Dunaway: Snakes. OctOber 3 0 Lieuten a nt R. Ruhle : The Blackfeet Indians and Other Indian Tribes ( with colored sli des) November 13 Lieutenant R. Ruhle: Bears. December 11-Mr. Buckley: Logic. February March 5 Ral ph Sherr it : Minerals. 5 Mr. Walter Fischer: Chemical Magic. This was the first year that the society has collected dues. These dl'es amounted to one dollar per yea r and were used to pay for refreshments after the meetings and for a picnic. The annual waffle supper was held at the end of the first semester and an even better than usual farewell-tO-the-year party was held at the home of the sponsor, Mr. Lee. C.ONQUISTADOR PAGE FORTY-ONE

THE STUDENT ASSISTANTS A student ass istant is probably hig hly h o nored by the position he h o lds. The salary earned is quire small, but what does the assistant care about a few dollars, when the experience a nd kn ow ledge he gains will be o f much greater value in his future college career? This year there were four assistants: one in English one in biology, and twO in chemistry and physics_ Patricia Kennedy's duties included checking papers for form and ne arness, typing m a t e ri a l doing errands, clipping, putting exhibits on the bulletin b oa rd, and many other things. Helen Herman, sub-bug-chaser, enjoyed the friendly association of Mr. Lee while helping students understand the intricacies of natural sci e n ce R a lph Sherrit a nd Luke St a ndefer freshman and sop homore assistants respectively, ass i s ted Mr. Bu c kley a nd Mr. Vinton in the chemistry and physics l aboratO ries. Ralph set up apparatus in the physics lab tOok care of the battery room, a nd did all rhe odd jobs to be f o und in a laboratOry. Luke, being the sophomore assistant, prepared the rea ge nts and unknowns which are used in general chemistry, a nd a l so made up the solutions used by the sophomores in analytical chemistry. M a ny a freshman tried t o extOrt the identity o f hi s unknown from the sophomore assistant, always returning unsuccessful to his laboratOry bench. PAGE FORTY-TWO CONQUISTADOR

GAMMA CHI During the early part of the first semester of the present year the sophomore girls, with the aid of Mr. Lyons, founded a Junior College sorority to which they gave the name of Gamma Chi A description of the purposes and plans of the sorority was pre s ented to the faculty by Alice Fairbrother and met with their approval. One of the chief aims of the group is to help with worth-while college activities. Mrs. Teegarden was chosen as sponsor and all the sophomore girls were invited to become charter members of the sorority. Francene Pometoy was elected president; Alice Fairbrother, vice-president; Ann e Higgins, secretary; and Bertha Frensiey, treasurer. Other charter mem bers were Imogene Crenshaw, Dorothy Fritz, Helen Herman, Glori,\ Houghton, Norma JohnstOn, Patricia Kennedy, Yolanda Revesz Marie Stewart, a special student and Marian \'(/' eller. Later the follow ing freshmen were pledged: Phyllis Zemer, Obdulia Wright, L. Ruth Smith, and Lou Ellen Zenr. Other girls will be pledged late in the spr i ng. The social functions of the Gammas included a spaghetti dinner given by Bertha Frensley and a tea given at the home of Anne Higgins by the girls. One n ight during the Christmas season the Gammas, dressed in evening dress and carrying candles serenaded some of the instructors. In January a farewell dinner w a s given for the president, Francene Pomeroy when she left the Isthmus to make her home in Arizona. On AprilS the Gammas Chi had a "kid party at the S. A Clu b for the whole college and on May 10 Mrs. Tee garden, the sponsor entertained the sorority at a tea at the Hotel Tivo li. Among the services performed by Gamma Chi was the writing of l etters to colJeges in the United States requesting new catalogues to rep l ace the tattered ones in the Lounge. The girls also ushered at plays. In February the Gamma Chis sponsored a brief bur amusing assemb l y in honor of Georges Bouche, sophomore president, who was leaving colJege for the army.

MEN 'S SPORTS FOO TBALL: C.Z.J.c. this year apparently had the m a t eria l for a very good team. Practices and scrimmages under the ab l e direction of Coach Humphries gave the players high hopes of d e f eat in g bo t h h igh schoo ls, but f ate took a h a nd. Athletes are the most s uperst it iou s peop l e on earth. The l oss of both a llstar ga mes might be attributed to the faCt that in the minutes preceding b o th games, when a team', choice o f receiving o r o f kicking off is decided b y a fli p of a coin College l ost b oth toSS-ups.

glwding which handicapped hi gh-schoo l forwards. As forwards, Anne Hi ggins and Alice Fairbrother played a steady game, saving the b a ll for Cecily"s never-miss shoes. On February S, the ].C All-Scars met stiff competition in th e B.H .S. l assies. The game was close all the way with College leading, while Barbara Barr prevented the high school's scar forward from shooeing. In tbe second h a lf however the high-school gi rl s not only caught up, but CZ.J.C, l eaving the final score at 20 -17 in f avo r of the high school. Norma J ohnscon was high scorer, with 9 points chalked up f or College while Cecily sank 4 baskets (8 points). The game versus Criscoba l was a defeat for CZ.J.C The state nv:nt that our girls put up a good fight is ev iden ced by the f act that Rurhie Smith fell flat on her face in an attempt ro l ose h er guard and rake the ball down co our goa l for a shot. Cecil y starred again, making lOa f the 12 points. Despite a ll the tricky set-ups and passes, however (he game was lost co Criscoba l by 20-12. SOFT BALL: The girls' softball te am was in good batting form this sea son though the fielding was noe up CO par. The high-school field ers moved out when "King-Ko ng Crenshaw wa lk ed up ro the pbte and SWl1ng the b at with the ease of a New York Yankee. Nor diel our "pponents bre at he easi l y until they recovered the drive which flubs Barr !ubirually sent far out into left field. These two girls earned wide reputa tions as star players on the CZ.].C team. The lin e-up was as f o llows: batteries Johnscon and Barr ; first base, Fairbrother; second base, Crenshaw; third bet.,.,. Higgins. Ocher players were Smi th, H atc bett Borgis Zent, Kirkpatrick, Sherk H enriquez, Fritz, D olan. and Frensley. SWIMMING: Swimming classes proved ro be more like fun than class wc.rk for many of the gi rl s who really went in for this all-year sport. Thuse girls who cou ld nOt swi m were in ;tct!Ged by Mrs. O'Connell and M,s. Cutter. while Mr. Dwelle gave the girls some pointers o n racing form a nd divin g.

THE LOUNGE By PATRICIA KENNEDY AND DOROTHY FRITZ Do you believe in spirits? Well, we do, because we were in the Lounge one day when a faintly translucent figure dressed in the costume of a sixteenth century buccaneer appeared and introduced himself a s the ghost of Henty Morgan. He stood at the door of the Lounge as if m a zed and it is no wonder. What must he have thought o f the things he s aw? Some things he said brought to mind the good ole days when men were rough and ready. For instance, when Midence and Carrera played s o fiercely at ping pong he was reminded of duels he had f o ught for women or gold. S o me of the noisy bickering in English and Spanish made him remember the s a cking of Old Panama. This impression was aided by the fact th a t the room was full of cigarette smoke and flying missiles Suddenly determined footsteps were heard approaching down the h all. The r o om fell silent ( except for Jimmy Lakas ) and Hank h a stily c o nce a led himself behind the nearest door, thinking that it must be the viceroy of New Gran a d a at least, to inspire so much respect.

C.Z.J.c. TREASURE CHEST By C ECILY SHERK AND JOYCE KIRKPATRICK The sun was hot. It seemed to penetrate into every corner of the universe, and the hottest place of all was Panama. Here and there a burst of scattered fire could be seen, but for the most part the land was steeped in foreboding drowsiness. On the Pacific side of the Isthmus a number of men toiled up a sandy slope of the beach struggling under the l oad of a heavy chest. The leader of the parry shouted orders and a great hole was dug; a large chest was dropped inside and then quickly covered. The last thing the leader did was to take the massive key to the chest and fling it tOward a brambly hill not far away. Mr. Williams was cleaning his yard recently. He was raking among the leaves, noticing the lovely flowers, and thinking that there would be a full moon that night. He stOpped to rest at frequent intervals and by chance his eye happened to fall on a rusty metal object. Greatly disgusted at this untidiness, Mr. Williams walked over and attempted to kick the object into the yard of his neighbor. Alas, all he got for his trouble was a sore tOe. Not to be conquered by a mere iron bar however, Mr. Williams tOok his spade CONQUISTADOR PAGE SEVENTYSEVEN

and started digging. He found much to his surprise that the object was a mas,ive key. The key was indeed a magnificent one; it had elfin figures dancing along its sides and other obscure markings. On the right hand side were the four signs of arithmetic: +, -, -7-, X On the left hand side was the familiar Latin conjugation, arno amas, arnat At the center of the key sat a chemical equation for the prepar a tion of carbon dioxide. Suddenl y it occurred to Me. Williams th a t this was the key to scholarship At the base of the key he found a very small inscription that read This key unlo cks the Canal Zone Junior College. The next morning Mr. Williams breathlessly unlocked the door of our school. On the top of the chest was a very old newsp a per covered with a plentiful supply of statistics. Just inside the newspaper lay a series of old scrolls. One of them was called The Art of Typing," a n o ther Frequent Mistakes in Diction," and still another, The Biog r a phy of The Sloth One of the scrolls was so filled with m a thematic a l l ogic that Me. Williams s knees buckled when he look ed a t it. So much for the old scrolls. Beneath the scrolls are three comp a rtments or, as they are more commonly called in schools, three departments. The first compartment contains nothing but coins. Me. Willi a ms noticed that one particular coin was very b a dly battered The coin looked as though it h a d been playing a rough a nd tumble game on the softball diamond The sparkling quality possessed by the coin was remarkable, however and Me. Willi a ms did not doubt that it would soon be restored to Norm. Another little B i ts y coin a ttracted attention because of its size. The finest coin in the heap, however was pure red-gold. A lady with a soul as bright would never Sue Her M an. F air as the thoughts of a wished-for brotber was the luster of still another coin. There are a number o f other coins in this compartment, but these have a slightly gr eeni s h cast Yet, as Mr. Williams looked at them he saw that the g reen was wearing very thin, and would soon be entirely gone. We do n O t hesit a te to U'/rigbt, nor our instincts do we BaH' for at some futur e dat e we ll Hunt and find still ri c her G aines in this com p a rtment. Th e next compartment was filled with e m e r a lds n u gge ts, garnets i vory nac re, exqui s it e e b ony, ubies, sapphires a nd m any o ther precious j ewe ls. Me. Willi a m s th oug ht that this co mpartment was th e greates t o f them all. The t hird compa rtm e nt has a differ e nt mood and person a lity a b out it Its mosr a ttractive c har acte ristic is its inconsi s tency. Me.

THE ENGINEERS By JOHN AXE These are the lads with mechanical minds The experts on curves and parallel lines ; Of ions of vol rs, and ohms they know all, And can survey a mountain no matter how t all. With brains so loaded right up to the brim, The problem remains of keeping them trim. They have to be oiled and wound every day. Or e lse the poor fellows will go far astray. TO A TROPIC NIGHT By MARIAN WELLER God made this night this gentle night And hung the moon on high Then p l aced the cricket in the grass And nighr sounds in the sky.

Every class has its wit, a nd we are glad to name Eddie for the sophomores, and Helen for the freshmen. Both Helen and Eddie hail from New Jersey, but they have been converted into Zonians. Helen's wit is found in her const a nt chatter Many a peaceful session has been disrupted by a very unexpected but welcome, reo mark affording an excuse for laughter. Helen a dds her bit of hum or to eve r y crowd. Eddie is we ll known for his ingenious c r eation of "Fatty.fatty."
