NATURAL SCIENCE SOCIETY A speech by Victor Dunaway on poisonous snakes of Panama started the Natural Science Society off for the year 1946-47. At the second meeting, officers were n amed for the year. M a rlin Cu lpepper was elected President ; Nancy Sullivan Secretary-Treasurer ; and Charles Arnold, Gus Rosania and VictOr Dunawa y the Planning Committee. In November, Ralph Sherrit spoke about F10urEscence and Phos phorEscence and illustrared his t a lk w ith to c k samples a nd experiments The major event in January w a s the annual waffle supper at the home of our sponsor, Mr. Lee. Mrs. Lee s waffles were, as usual, "out of this world."' When everyone mustered enough energy to move a committee was chosen to wash dishes, while the others listened to a sErenade by Ernest Franceschi with his guitar, and vocal so l os by Migu el Kourany. In February Mr. Clar e nce True lectured at the Miraflores Obse r vatOry and g a ve us glimpses of the m o on several planEts and stars through the telescope. AnOther trip which provEd interesting was a tour of the m o del of rhe Sea-Level Canal a t Mirafl o res. The tOur w as conduCted by one of the engineers working en the project and h e answered all of Our m any quesri o ns afrer explaining the operation of the model. The aCtivities of the club thi s year proved both profitable and enjoyable thus living up to the NSS aim of fun in education. C O N Q UISTADO R PAGE SiXTY SEVEr....

FOOTBALL Football started with a bang. Most of the boys in college participal ed in the co llege intr amura l football l eague making it one of the be st in co ll ege history. Over three-quarters of the participants were veterans. The service had not impaired their athletic ability for the intramura l le ag ue brou g ht our many stars, most of whom were All-Stars and re presented CZJC in its interscho lasti c gridiron contests. As the intra mur a l seaso n drew to a close the All-Stars were c h osen to represent the gree n and white of the Canal Zone Junior College aga inst the CristOba l a nd Balb oa High Schools. They we r e under th e di r ection of a n ew coach, Mr. B l eifuss who played freshman b a ll at the U ni versiry o f Ill inois, and who w a s a l so a n athl etic o ffi cer in the Air Corps for four years. All bur one of th e twenty-two A ll -Stars were vete r ans. Preseason predictions rated us very highly, be cause of th e return of the stars of former years. It was a tOugh task for coach Bleifuss to ge t a ll the "stars to playas a team rather than i ndividua l p l aye r s bur a fter tWO weeks of h a rd practice the Junior College grid team tOok the field aga in s t the CHS l ads confident of its first victOry. The C H S te a m was n o push-over, however holding CZJC to a score less tie and threatening to score severa! times themselves. T he field was mudd y and th e ball was slipp ery. The College team was using t h e f amed T form atio n where h a ndlin g is very important, a nd th e elusive ball caused seve r a l fumbles. In the fir st game with th e B a lb oa High School All-Stars CZJC outplay ed the younger and l ighter BHS team to win b y a 19 to 7 score. The college men really clicked in this game running u p 15 first downs agai n st 1 f o r the oppos iti on. The College line held lik e a stOne wal l while the backs held the forward passes comp l eted for BHS to zero. The game was spa rk ed by the brilli ant passing of Kenea l y a nd Turtle who comp l eted 12 of 21 aerials 3 of which were good for tOuchdowns.

In our second game with CHS, we were defeated 9 to 0 by our own r oug h playing in the ruggedest game played this year. Co lle ge received 1 70 yards in pena lti es Both reams threw in a ll they had until the l ast quarter when College a llowed CristObal to complete a tOuchdown pass and an extra point. CZJC fought back desperately, bur jusr could not put th e ball across. The final score of the game came whe n College took a CristOba l punt on their own one yard l ine. Two long passes were tried but both were incomplete. On the third" down Ostrea dropped back into punt form at ion on l y to h ave his punt blocked by a fas t CristObal tackle. This gave CHS tWO points and a 9 to 0 victOry ove r CZJc. Colle ge came back to defeat BHS for the second time by a 12 to o count. They got off to a good start, runn in g up three first downs in a row, and th e n De La Mater went over the str ip e on a center plunge. The tr y for the extra point fai l ed College was held in check until th e third quarter when Harold Turtle passing ace, heaved a 40-yard aeria l to Jimmy Kenealy in the end zone for the second tOuchdown making the SCOre 12 to O. Again the try for the extra point failed. In the l ast few minutes Al Husted mad"e th e most sensat i o n a l spr int of the game with his brilliant broken-field running for 48 yards, but th e touchdown never went on the score book. Larry Jones p l ayed a part icularly good game w i th his clever running off tackle while Red Conover Mannie Quintero and Bob Kunkel starred at end. Bob "Her c ules H arvey, Bob Engelke, Roy Atwood a nd Bob Mitc hell played a fin e game on th e line, breaking up play after play o n defense and open in g l arge holes for the backs to make important gains on offe nse.

BASEBALL The Juni or College won the inters cho@l championship this year for the first time in the history o f the school. The team went undefeated under the brilliant pitching of William Pretto a nd Lloyd Kent. Pretto won three to Kent s one. In th e first game w ith BHS the score w a s 5--2. This was a tight game until the l ast inning w h en College took advantage of a Balbo a miscue, a wil d throw to first on a slow roller from Jack Muller s bal and three runners scored. Pretto was the winning pitcher giving up two hits a nd s trikin g o ur 15 baners College gOt a break in their first game with CHS, edging the Atlantic Siders by a 3--2 verdict. Blackburn the Cristobal hurler, turned in a no hit game but his wildness coupled with his teammates errors cost him the game. Again in th e l ast innin g, Hus ted worked his way to third and stole home whe n pitcher Blackburn bobbled Tuttle s hir ro the mound. Preno chalked up his second win, allowing one hit a n d s rrikin g out nine Crisroba l baners. Lloyd Kent made his fir st appearance in the box f or CZJC in the second contest with BHS. H e gave up twO hits and stru c k Out seven coll ecting a 4--1 win. The only time Kent was rhreatened was in th e first inning, when BHS scored their l one rally bur after this he retired them in order for the remainder of rhe game College matched that run in the fourth when Jone s sing led to right stole second and third and came home on a long fly to l eft. In the sixth inning Husted walked, advanced on Eder s sin gle, and s cored a h ead of Eder o n Tuttle' s lin e drive to center. Jones completed the circuit again in the last inning, making th e fin a l count 4 --1. The final game with CHS was especially g ood ending 7-4 in favor of Jc. Pretro was credited with the win although he was repl a ced by Kent in the third bec a use of an injury. Ja c k Haywood the Cristob,,1 twirler was a little wild in the first inning walking three and then l etting a wil d pitch go allowing J ones and Kuller to SCOre. Three m ore College rums came across the pl a te in the fifth. Kent was in some trouble in the sixth when Cristob a l touched him for four hits a nd two walks en o ugh for four runs. CZJC got their l a st twO in the seventh when Mull e r doub led wit h twO mates aboard Cristoba l threatened in the l owe r seventh with men on second and third.
