We are but Pieces of the game He plays<br />

Upon this checkerboard of Nights and Days<br />

-Old Omar the Tentmaker<br />

like other games, it is a great game or a<br />

small game, according to the intellectual and<br />

moral caliber of the players ... Within the Great<br />

Game which Fate plays with Destiny are the little<br />

games which the puppet-pieces play with each<br />

other-the games of politics, war, ambition,<br />

avarice, and the joy or sorrow of living.<br />

-E. H. (Yorick) Clough<br />

This war-time record of a college year is dedicated<br />

to those who carry a memory of our campus<br />

in their hearts, wherever the Great Game calls<br />


seniors, was called into the service, Mary Ellen filled<br />

his position, and Gertrude Spencer was appointed<br />

vice-president.<br />

Senior President Bill Simonsen calls down Freshman Yvonne Weary<br />

for being in the "sacred" Senior Quad. Vice President Mary Ellen<br />

Bowlby looks up from her studying to flash the photog. her glammer<br />

smile. Secretary Lois Klumph takes time out for a little recreational<br />

reading at Scripps Cottage. Treasurer Marjorie Strong decides on the<br />

best angle for her morter board.<br />

Because every school minute had to be crammed<br />

with study, seniors "trucked" to the mountains on<br />

Ditch Day, Sunday, March 7. The senior play,<br />

"Arsenic and Old Lace," was held May 14. Baccalaureate<br />

Sunday was planned for June 6; graduation<br />

for June I 1 in the afternoon, followed by the dinnerdance<br />

in the evening.<br />

Class sponsors were Mrs. Alvena Storm and Dr. A.<br />

P. Nasatir. Cabinet members included Belle Dill,<br />

school gift; Peggy Bodien, caps and gowns; Bob<br />

Austin, graduation week, and the class officers.<br />

5 EN 10 RS earned a reputation of "tradition<br />

breakers" by inaugurating a policy of "pay<br />

as you go," in place of using dues books, because<br />

of unsettled war conditions. Strengthening this<br />

reputation, they won the Sadie Hawkins Day chariot<br />

race. Jockey Marjorie Strong guided Four<br />

"Horsemen" Tom Lyles, Bill Downing, Jim Ahler,<br />

and Joe Davis to the win.<br />

Senior Activities were ably guided by Bill Simonsen,<br />

president; Mary Ellen Bowlby, vice-president; Lois<br />

Klumph, secretary, and Marjorie Strong, treasurer.<br />

Seniors "ditched" in a big way going by truckloads for a day's fun<br />

in the mountains. Cabinet members Gertrude Spencer, Lois Klumph,<br />

Mary Ellen Bowlby and Belle Dill talk over revised plans for remaining<br />

members of the depleted senior class.<br />

Charmian Ehmcke was officially crowned Senior<br />

Queen by President Hepner at the Junior-Senior<br />

prom held November 20 at Hotel del Coronado.<br />

It was a full and active year in spite of war-induced<br />

handicaps. When Prexy Bill Simonsen, with other<br />

Most of the ERC men leaving State were taken from the ranks of the<br />

junior class. Secretary "Dusty" joined the WAVES, leaving State to<br />

study at communications school.<br />

With the help of Dr. Post, circus-minded juniors sponsored an open air<br />

exhibition in the quad, featuring rope-twirling expert Mark Ross from<br />

Texas. He also performed for the children in the training school.<br />

The rest of their time was spent in the whirl of activities and studies preparatory<br />

to their last year under Montezuma's spell.<br />

Sophomores donated the funds originally planned for their dance in<br />

favor of financing the traditional Blue Book Ball which this year honored<br />

the senior class.<br />

Comedy, music, pretty girls and songs<br />

made a smash hit of the Sophomore-Frosh<br />

Dick Brewer, elected president at the beginning of the year was called by the army and was unab e<br />

to fill out his term of office.<br />

MEN were scarce in the sophomore class, especially after the ERe<br />

groups were called. But traditionally inactive sophomores made the best<br />

of a bad situation and really showed their stuff. Popular prexy Dick Brewer<br />

got the class off to a good start before he left for the army in March by<br />

promoting a successful dues card campaign. The proceeds went into the<br />

sponsorship of one of Dr. Post's newsletters and the backing of the Frosh-<br />

Soph show April 14, "No Priorities Please", a take-off on a college-students'<br />

stage show depicting the life of a draftee.<br />

Bill Cordtz, hard-working production manager-director of the show<br />

was assisted by sophomore AI Couvrette as business manager, Murray<br />

Stirton as assistant director, Austin Mason, musical director, and Phil Bulot<br />

as assistant production director. Director of the stage sets and costumes<br />

was Eloise Hanson.<br />


of Athletics, Lane Cole. Appointed as Publicity director and Historian<br />

respectively were Dick Ryberg and Florence Goodill.<br />

Aztecs are still talking about the good spaghetti and fun they had at the<br />

Frosh picnic November 27. Always one of the main class events, the<br />

picnic this year was held at Eucalyptus Park, where games and eats galore<br />

were the order of the day. A vote of thanks went to Betty Clapper and<br />

her committee for making the affair a success.<br />

The class also proved their willinqness to work for the school when they<br />

helped sponsor one of the early news letters ... They also contributed to<br />

the Cetza drive.<br />

To polish off the fall semester, the class of '46 gave a successful Blue Book<br />

Ball, featuring a local broadcast. A combination frosh reception and Blue<br />

Book Ball was held again on February 23 at Pacific Square, with the nine<br />

social fraternities presenting their choices for "Blue Book Belle."<br />

class, frosh also put on the<br />

All-Aztec Review, "No Priorities,<br />

Please" which proved<br />

highly successful.<br />

Lettermen's Club took over the task<br />

of informally inducting the frosh into the<br />

Associated Student Body of San Diego<br />

State this year. Offenders who broke<br />

strict conduct rules laid down for freshmen<br />

were clapped into "jail" and made<br />

to pay their homage to Monty by singing,<br />

dancing and kow-towing.<br />


CAP AN D GOWN members helped brother Blue Keyers with the<br />

Youth Congress, presented the Music Department programs to the public and sponsored<br />

the Cap and Gown bridge tea and fashion commentary featuring Miss Louise Sooy, in<br />

one of the most active years yet. Purpose of Cap and Gown has always been to promote<br />

the college in the community, and they aim to publicize more and more in the<br />

future the various activities of the college departments.<br />

Thrill of the year comes on the day when senior women with outstanding scholarship or<br />

who have been of greatest service to the school are "tapped" Cap and Gown. Traditional<br />

ritual is to gather the girls on the steps of the library to sing the Alma Mater.<br />

Sponsored by Dean Mary Mendenhall and Mrs. Albert Jones, Cap and Gowners meet<br />

at Scripps Cottage or in Dean Mendenhall's office. Final act of the year is the presentation<br />

of a scholarship to deserving students who might otherwise be unable to continue<br />

their education.<br />

5 ERV ICE MEN on the campus are the members of Oceotl, whose task<br />

is to preserve the traditions of the Aztec Tribe. Their energetic annual drive which<br />

comes to our campus at Christmas time is recognized immediately by Its accompanying<br />

sounds-the merry tune the pennies playas they fall into the collecting bottles,<br />

and the Oceotl plea for more music like that. Another service rendered by the Oceotl<br />

men is the difficult one of conducting the Frosh initiation.<br />

Only thosz Sophomores and Juniors who have made themselves outstanding through<br />

campus activity are selected for membership. Their sponsor is the very busy Dean<br />

C. E. Peterson. Bi-monthly meetings are held on campus. Best meeting of the year<br />

was that held jointly with their sister service organization, Cetza.<br />

SERVICE WOMEN are those in Cetza. Membership is based upon<br />

good scholarship, service toward the school, and leadership ability. Perhaps the most<br />

outstanding fact about the organization is the way in which these Cetza queens work<br />

together in bringing a variety of service to the school. Many a bewildered freshman<br />

has been grateful to them for their help in the orientation program, and many a serviceman<br />

was made happy upon receiving a Cetza Christmas box. Participation in the<br />

many functions of Cetza prepares its members for possible service in Cap and Gown.<br />

the life span of a National Service Organization-Alpha Phi Omega. The chapter here<br />

at State is well known for its numerous activities, the most memorable of which were<br />

adapted to our wartime environment. This group began the sale of war bends and<br />

stamps on the campus, and is responsible for the impressive flag ceremony which Staters<br />

witness every morning. And how do you suppose that boy found your telephone<br />

number?-in the Student Directory published by Alpha Phi Omega, of course.<br />

SPEAK NOW or forever hold your peace. So they spoke; held their<br />

pieces of cake in their hands, and the Student Forum was underway! Student participation<br />

was excellent in these meetings, which came at noon in room S I0 I. The<br />

munching of lunches naturally presented untold inspiration to the speakers. Two meetings<br />

of the year will be especially remembered. The most popular was the discussion<br />

about war marriages, a topic of great importance to college students of today. The<br />

other sign of the times was, "Should extra-curricular activities be curtailed"?<br />

The organization is sponsored by Dean A. G. Peterson, and the entire student body<br />

constitutes the membership.<br />

Especially to be commended for their well-planned and excellently conducted meetings<br />

are those in charge of the Student Open Forum: Chairman, George Reed, and the<br />

board members: Hadarah Dominitz, Bill Simonsen, and Marna Fleming.<br />

in order to guide other<br />

would-be chemists in their vocational<br />

choice.<br />

Outstanding meeting of the year<br />

was a potluck luncheon which<br />

turned out to be a reunion for<br />

graduate members. A chemistry<br />

major or chemistry minor with satisfactory<br />

AZTECA<br />

is made up of students interested<br />

in our neighbors to the south.<br />

Members try to gain a better<br />

knowledge of the people by studying<br />

their customs and language.<br />

Sandwiched in with lectures and<br />

discussions are numerous social<br />

events. One of the most interesting<br />

of these was a theatre party<br />

which saw several of the members<br />

attending a Mexican film. Spanish<br />

speakers also put on a Mexican<br />

dinner for their election banquet.<br />

Because the purpose of the club<br />

is to stimulate interest in the<br />

Spanish language, a requirement<br />

to membership is some speaking<br />

knowledge of Spanish, as well as .<br />

an active interest in the South American countries and their people.<br />

LETTERMEN'S CLUB this year was well-known on the campus, especially among the freshmen. It was<br />

they who took over the task of giving the newcomers their first taste of college "education." Hazing, climaxed by<br />

Kangaroo court and Jail in the quad, was a highlight of the fall semester.<br />

Aims of the lettermen's aggregation are to give service to the school and to get the athletes from different sports together<br />

for social purposes. To belong, a man must have earned a letter in a major sport. The group is sponsored by<br />

of San Diego State, Dr. WaIter<br />

R. Hepner keeps as busy<br />

all of the time as any student<br />

cramming for fin a I s. His<br />

ready willingness to spend<br />

time helping other people,<br />

and his genial carefree smile<br />

belie the fact that he is an<br />

active and important member<br />

of at least ten college,<br />

city, state and national committees<br />

and organizations.<br />

DR. HEPNER<br />

In addition he has a victory<br />

garden which feeds the family<br />

several meals a week and "at<br />

least. one strawb:rry a day." A "profitable hobby" is his 25 acre orange grove at<br />

Covina, from which he this year plans to ship out at least 12,000 boxes of fruit.<br />

Another activity of which he is proud is his membership in the San Diego Rotary Club.<br />

He was recently chosen as their next president.<br />

Profession~lIy President Hepner is a member of the California Committee for the study<br />

of Education, member of the sub-committee for Accreditation of Teacher Training Institutions,<br />

and head of the sub-committee for Matriculation.<br />

!~/,ddition he is on. the board of directors of the 'VI( ar Chest, of the Army and Navy<br />

. ,of The San Dleg? Mu.seu.m,. and of the San Diego Council of Boy Scouts of Amerrce.<br />

An honorary position IS his life membership in the Boy Scouts.<br />

A SOFT SOUTHERN ACCENT a gracious manner<br />

and a sincere interest in people typify Dean Mary Mendenhall whose task is to guide<br />

the welfare of all of the women students a t State college. As a member of numerous<br />

student committees and organizations she is able to keep in touch with the trends and to<br />

act accordingly in advising women students needing help or advice. Thoughtfulness of<br />

others is her main consideration in dealing with people, and many can testify to her tact<br />

and understanding.<br />

Her coming to State four years ago climaxed several years of preparation for the position.<br />

She had previously held similar posts at Whittier and Riverside Polytechnic High<br />

School; and had received her schooling at the University of Colorado, University of<br />

Southern California where she earned her M.A. degree, and Yale University where she<br />

was awarded her Ph.D.<br />

Part of her spare time this year is taken up w,ith serving twice a week on the Grand Jury<br />

to which she was recently appointed. She still has time to attend the many teas, lectures<br />

and luncheons as the school's representative, and her ever-ready smile and sympathetic<br />

nature make her a Dean we can well be proud of.<br />

"HI COACH'; OR "HI DEAN" answeredbya<br />

friendly "well hello there" invariably denotes the presence of Dean C. E. Peterson. One<br />

of the Dean's hobbies is to try to learn the na mes of and to know every member of the<br />

student body.<br />

Combining his position of Dean of Men with that of Head of the Men's Physical Education<br />

department, Coach Peterson's difficulties have piled up more than ever this year.<br />

A depleted coaching staff, loss of star athletes, rapid turnover of material, and lack of<br />

inter-collegiate competition combined to deal an almost fatal blow to athletics at State.<br />

A good half of Coach Peterson's time is spent at the Field House working out the<br />

knotty problems involved in hiring student coaches, making up schedules and a hundred<br />

other details.<br />

He has been at State since 1921 as Dean of Men, and before that as a student. After<br />

earning his A.B. degree on the home campus he traveled to the Claremont Colleges<br />

for his M.A.<br />


The bespeetacle~, friendly President has also converted his hobby of boating into a<br />

me.ans for furthering ~he war efforts. With boating curtailed, he has turned his seagOing<br />

talents. from his .v~~~t the Nor'wester, to a Coast Guard craft. Every Tuesday<br />

~e assumes his responsibilities as an auxilliary Coast Guardsman and aids in the atroll-<br />

Ing of the San Diego Bay. p<br />

Dean of Liberal Arts, A. G. Peterson. is a wellknown<br />

figure in the Senior world. It IS he who<br />

grades theses and who has the final word as to<br />

graduation requirements.<br />

Dean A.G., easily recognized with his "butch"<br />

haircut. also advises numerous campus groups and<br />

OK's activities. Always busy, he may frequently<br />

be seen finishing up a bit of work at odd moments<br />

during the day.<br />

As head of the summer school session he sponsored<br />

clam bakes, wiener roast and picnics in addition<br />

to his regular duties.<br />

Dean Peterson came to our campus in 192\ and<br />

in doing so left vacant the position of vice<br />

principal of San Diego High School.<br />


As Dean of Education, Dean Ault directs all student<br />

teacher activities and works in close conjunction<br />

with Dr. Richard Madden, principal of<br />

the training school. Tall and easy-going, the Dean<br />

provides the steadying influence for many a<br />

flustered, disalusioned student teacher.<br />

It is he with his quiet chuckle and twinkling eyes<br />

who can best prove to an undecided ·student the<br />

true worth of teaching, and the absolute necessity<br />

of training more teachers to serve in the troubled<br />

world of today.<br />



Registration duties have been in somewhat of a<br />

turmoil during the 1943 school year due to the<br />

rapid turnover in college registrars. Dr. George<br />

E. Dotson, who headed the department last year,<br />

gave up the position during the summer to join<br />

the armed forces.<br />

Dr. Herbert C. Peiffer, psychology professor who<br />

was last year voted the most popular instructor<br />

on campus, took over the job. Then, having settled<br />

himself well in the position and established<br />

a smooth routine of business, Dr. Peiffer too went<br />

the "w~y of all men these days"; in April he was<br />

called Into the Navy as a Lieutenant j.g.<br />

Filling out the year as registrar was Dr. Donald<br />

Watson, who had to sandwich the new work in<br />

with his duties as an instructor in physical science.<br />

Excellence in their field can certainly<br />

be credited to the Art department.<br />

Each one of its faculty<br />

is distinguished in some field of<br />

art. Lena Patterson distributes<br />

her talent among supervising the<br />

art instruction in the training<br />

school and teaching her popular<br />

courses in Costume Designing and<br />

Home Decoration. lise Hamann<br />

is in charge of craftwork, industrial<br />

design, and home planning. Her<br />

students produce articles in wood,<br />

clay and metal.<br />

Ivan Messenger joined the department<br />

last semester and has become<br />

very well liked. Everett Gee<br />

Jackson rules the department with<br />

a Texan accent and a ready smile.<br />

He is a favorite of all of his students<br />

,and is a noted painter as<br />

well.<br />

We might expect that our Foreign<br />

language department will soon<br />

add Russian and Chinese to its<br />

curriculum. Already most of the<br />

members of the department speak<br />

fluently German, French and Spanish,<br />

and several have mastered<br />

still other languages. Dr. L. P.<br />

Brown heads the department and<br />

teaches French. Assisting him are<br />

his wife, Dr. E. M. Brown specializing<br />

in French, Mr. Walter Phillips<br />

teaching French and Spanish, Mrs.<br />

Hilde K. Walker handling instruction<br />

in German, and Mr. Clifford<br />

Baker also teaching Spanish.<br />

Journalism, drama and English<br />

each add their bit to make up the<br />

English department, and heading<br />

it all is Dr. Joseph Keeney. First<br />

section mentioned is directed by<br />

Chester Kennedy. Dr. Harriet<br />

Haskell, Dr. John Adams, Dr. Frank<br />

Johnson, Mabel Coy Trail and Dr.<br />

Harold Allen complete the list of<br />

those teaching literature and the<br />

fundamentals of reading and English.<br />

The drama division is taken care of<br />

by Sybil Eliza Jones who was<br />

prominent at the Pasadena Playhouse<br />

before she came here.<br />

Through her efforts the school is<br />

continually entertained with play<br />

productions including original skits,<br />

Dr. Myrtle Johnson is a prominent<br />

figure on campus. Is there a student<br />

here who hasn't taken Biology?<br />

It is she who heads the life<br />

science section of the faculty.<br />

Study of animals is taken care of<br />

by the two men in the life science<br />

group. Dr. Robert Harwood attends<br />

to the bugs and zoo species<br />

while Dr. James Crouch gives his<br />

lectures on the human one. Mary<br />

Jannoch also teaches biology<br />

while Dorothy Harvey conducts<br />

the botany classes. Pupils have<br />

called her botany field trips "Pre-<br />

Commando training," nevertheless<br />

many seniors graduate still knowing<br />

that the golden poppy is<br />

Eschscholtzia cal iforn ica.<br />

The important Chemistry department<br />

has as its chief Dr. Ambrose<br />

Nichols. Dr. Nichols h~s other<br />

claims on his interest, however, as<br />

his afternoons are spent at the<br />

Naval Sound laboratory and some<br />

of his mornings are taken up with<br />

the building of model molecules<br />

that in the end look suspiciously<br />

like tinker-toy projects.<br />

Cartland Bailey couldn't be more<br />

efficient if he were twins, though<br />

he acts in the capacity of a chemist<br />

as well as a physicist.<br />

Elmer Messner is a difficult man<br />

to find as he has only one office<br />

hour a week according to his door<br />

card. But if you are "in the know"<br />

you will be fairly sure that he is<br />

working several periods each day<br />

in his private lab. next door. .<br />

Marvin (Mickey) Ross is the chief<br />

and only assistant to the department.<br />

Dr. Charles J. Krieger heads the<br />

Astronomy department. His classes<br />

are crowded with would-be<br />

aviators who want to master aerial<br />

navigation while in college. His<br />

office is usually occupied by a<br />

group of sextants, gloves, photos<br />

he has taken himself and students.<br />

Oscar W. Baird has his hands full<br />

this year managing the Physics department<br />

where he is aided by Dr.<br />

Krieger, Cartland Bailey, Dr. EdWin<br />

Worley and Dr. Donald Watson.<br />

The war has justly emphasized the<br />

importance of physics, and the<br />

staff divides its time between<br />

teaching packed classes and conducting<br />

vital research. Dr. Watson<br />

had the job of registrar suddenly<br />

handed to him last seme~ter<br />

in addition to his work in phySical<br />

science.<br />

Another class filled with prospective<br />

fighters is that in Meteorology<br />

taught by Dean Blake, meteorologist<br />

in the U. S. Weather Bureau<br />

in San Diego. When these same<br />

future fighting men leave the campus<br />

to go into training their most<br />

welcomed contact with the school<br />

is through Dr. Lauren Post. He is<br />

the originator and editor of the<br />

"Newsletter," a monthly newspaper<br />

that goes to all servicemen<br />

who have attended State College,<br />

and gives them the news about all<br />

of their comrades in the service.<br />

In cooperation with the Army, the<br />

head of the Geography department,<br />

Mrs. Alvena Storm, recently<br />

donated many maps of military<br />

value. Most of them were of<br />

coastal towns in Europe, knowledge<br />

of which is vital in the formation<br />

of commando raids and<br />

invasion plans.<br />

A big cigar, mare's milk and all<br />

eight volumes of McMaster's<br />

"History of the United States"<br />

together indicate the History department.<br />

They are representative<br />

of Dr. Abraham Nasatir, Dr. Livingstone<br />

Porter, and the head, Dr.<br />

Charles Leonard.<br />

Dr. Porter, a newcomer to the<br />

campus this year, proved a welcome<br />

and popular addition. Voted<br />

strongest faculty supporter of<br />

sports at State, Dr. Porter strongly<br />

advocated mare's milk for athletes.<br />

Dr. Nasatir leads a double life as<br />

consul from Uruguay and a memingstone<br />

Porter, and the head, Dr.<br />

ber of the history faculty. Dr.<br />

Leonard always spends the first<br />

semester scaring his students, but<br />

by the second semester they find<br />

our that much of his "scare" is<br />

just joking. His finals are notorious<br />

for questions like, "What is<br />

the color of the binding on Mc-<br />

Masters?"<br />

According to college stress this<br />

war is bringing on an era of mathematics<br />

and science. All of the<br />

services require a background of<br />

mathematics for officers. As a<br />

direct result the Math department<br />

suddenly found its classes crowded<br />

with eager aspirants for ranks in<br />

the service. All teachers from<br />

other departments who were capable<br />

of teaching mathematics<br />

found themselves facing jammed<br />

classrooms to teach trig., geometry,<br />

algebra, and calculus. Head<br />

of the group, and very proud of<br />

its size is George R. Livingston.<br />

Dr. Herbert Peiffer, head of the<br />

Psychology and Philosophy department,<br />

left his post vacant to become<br />

a lieutenant j.g. in the Navy<br />

in the middle of the spring semester.<br />

Members of the staff are<br />

Dr. Harry Steinmetz, Gertrude L.<br />

Dustin, and Dr. Hunter Mead.<br />

It is a good department to get<br />

into if one wants to find out why<br />

he acts the way he does, or to<br />

understand people's actions and<br />

thoughts, or to quibble over<br />

whether something is pleasure or<br />

happiness.<br />

This department also contributed<br />

to the service when Lieutenant<br />

Esther Pease joined the W AACS<br />

during the fall term. Mrs. Marion<br />

Schwob, head of the department,<br />

Florence Shafer and Muriel Bennett<br />

were left to carryon with a<br />

full program of athletics designed<br />

to keep women fit and alert.<br />

Unusually crowded were the First<br />

Aid classes. A requirement for<br />

Nurses Aides and future teachers,<br />

First Aid was also desired by many<br />

students who wished to be prepared<br />

in case of an air raid, an<br />

automobile accident or, for what<br />

is more common, an accident in<br />

the home.<br />

War has affected this department<br />

as much as any other in the school.<br />

Complete turnover in personnel<br />

took place with the exception of<br />

Dean C. E. Peterson who stayed<br />

on in his capacity of Director of<br />

Athletics. In the fall John Eubank<br />

took over Lt. Commander Leo<br />

Calland's place as grid coach. Les<br />

Cook managed to last most of<br />

that season, but left early in the<br />

baseball season when he was to<br />

coach. Student instructors, Don<br />

DeLauer and Dick Mitchell took<br />

over basketball and guided the<br />

two teams through a very successful<br />

season. Then M itch picked up<br />

a new co-coach in Bob Menke and<br />

went on to coach baseball. Six<br />

weeks before graduation the V-7<br />

group was called leaving baseball<br />

again coachless until Hal Summers<br />

stepped in to fill the bill. A chief<br />

"added attraction" was the commando<br />

training. Very few boys<br />

will ever forget the cross-country<br />

course up Dobe Canyon to Murray<br />

Dam and back once they have<br />

covered it.<br />

The Social Science department<br />

boasts as its head Dean A. G.<br />

Peterson. The Dean has taken<br />

time out from his other pressing<br />

duties this year to teach an inspiring<br />

and popular course called<br />

"Implications of the War."<br />

William Wright tackles the details<br />

for the commercial teachers. Typewriters<br />

batting out a rhythm i:l<br />

unison denotes one of Mamie<br />

Depew's classes.<br />

All accounting classes are taught<br />

by Frank Watenpaugh while Dr.<br />

Roy Cameron instructs his classes<br />

in the buying and selling of stocks<br />

and bonds.<br />

A good course in civic responsibility,<br />

graft and corruption is Dr.<br />

Kenneth Barnhart's class in Sociology.<br />

It includes a visit to the<br />

County Poor Farm and to the<br />

Insane Asylum.<br />

Another important member of this<br />

group is Mrs. Frances Torbert, who<br />

teaches merchandising and advertising,<br />

and handles the employment<br />

office.<br />


Tall and kindly is the head of the<br />

Education department, Dean Jesse<br />

Ault. His cohort and principal of<br />

the training school is Dr. Richard<br />

Madden whose first words are always,<br />

"Won't you sit down?" The<br />

two of them have been largely<br />

responsible for the undisputable<br />

reputation that San Diego State<br />

College has of turning out fine<br />

teachers.<br />

Theory is taught by Dr. E. C.<br />

Deputy, Dr. Marvin Alcorn, and<br />

Neil William Lamb. School law,<br />

progressive methods, tests and<br />

measurements are just a few of<br />

the things they try to instill into<br />

the brains of their students. In<br />

addition they supervise the cadet<br />

teachers in the schools off campus.<br />

In the campus Elementary school<br />

the supervisors are most helpful<br />

and popular. They give that allimportant<br />

guidance to the teacher<br />

training students who are getting<br />

their first real taste of teaching.<br />

Guardians of the smallest children<br />

in the kindergarten are Isabella<br />

Hammack and Edith Hammack.<br />

The "close to professional" orchestra<br />

is taught by Margaret Hunt<br />

while the other grades are supervised<br />

by Edith Redit, Mrs. Guinivere<br />

Bacon, Katherine Corbett<br />

and Mrs. Marguerite Brydegard.<br />

MUSIC<br />

At every gathering of importance, on every occasion<br />

where the school is out to make an impression,<br />

the Music department is an integral part of the program.<br />

The orchestra, A Cappella, Treble Clef are just a few<br />

of the organizations in the department that regularly<br />

contribute to the school's programs.<br />

The leader of this group is Deborah Smith who is fondly<br />

known as "Teacher" to all of her pupils. Julius Leib<br />

is the popular conductor of the orchestra band, and<br />

chamber music group. Christine Springston and Deane<br />

Smith share the honors in teaching the rest of the offered<br />

music courses. Mascot to the department is<br />

Allegro, pet Scotty belonging to Miss Smith.<br />



AND<br />

A tall distinguished man wearing tweeds and a mustache<br />

like Sir Anthony Eden is Baylor Brooks, head of<br />

the Geology Department. A Rhodes scholarship put<br />

him in Oxford long enough for him to acquire a<br />

slightly English accent. This year he is both head and<br />

staff of his department.<br />

The Anthropology department is another with a oneman<br />

staff. The one man is Dr. Spencer Rogers. Adding<br />

a second job to the first Dr. Rogers is also director<br />

of the extension courses offered by the college<br />

faculty.<br />


Transits and stakes indicate the Engineering department.<br />

Curtis Walling and John Gleason keep their<br />

students busy surveying College Avenue and the<br />

immediate surrounding territory. By now they have so<br />

many figures on it that they probably can tell you<br />

within a fraction of an inch all of the details about<br />

that section of the campus.<br />

Engineering has proven invaluable in this war-the AIcan<br />

highway, pontoon bridges, roads and dams all<br />

require engineers. The students who go on always<br />

find pre-engineering training they received at State<br />

to be more than adequate in preparing them for the<br />

harder studies.<br />

60<br />

SECRETARIAL STAFF at State college is especially well equipped<br />

with fine secretaries, who in addition are grand people to know. Working behind<br />

the scenes to keep things in order for overly busy administrators, the secretaries seldom<br />

receive credit due them. When unable to make an appointment for you with their<br />

"boss", they can often give the desired help or information themselves.<br />


AND<br />

BUSINESS staffs had a<br />

tougher than usual time this year because<br />

of the constant stream of students and<br />

personnel leaving to join the armed forces.<br />

Figures show that at least two hundred<br />

and fifty left school after February. Original<br />

enrollment for the '42-'43 year was<br />

somewhat over eleven thousand, five<br />

hundred. Adjustments had to be made in<br />

the department itself when Miss Pyle<br />

joined the W AACS. She is now with the<br />

troops in Africa. Coming from the stock<br />

room to take her place in the business office<br />

was Dan Parker. Pat Herney handled<br />

the student bank.<br />



in addition to the purchase of over 8,000<br />

books, during each of the last two years,<br />

secured loans for the duration of three<br />

large collections totalling about 30,000<br />

volumes. Loans were from the Natural<br />

History Society, the San Diego Museu~<br />

of Man collection, and the personal lIbrary<br />

of former President U. S. Grant.<br />

This makes a total of approximately 120,-<br />

000 volumes available for the college student.<br />

Since the war a decided emphasis<br />

has been noted on technical and physical<br />

science books; and interest in magazines<br />

with maps and current geographical information<br />

on foreign countries has skyrocketed.<br />

LEADI NG the student<br />

body in a successful<br />

year with the war making inroads<br />

on all plans and traditions<br />

called for the finest of<br />

leadership. San Diego State<br />

College received just that<br />

under Bi'i jim Fairchild. In<br />

addition to the problems and<br />

new difficulties brought on by<br />

JIM FAIRCHILD the war, the curtailment of<br />

traveling cut jim's opportunity<br />

for trips down to a mimimum.<br />

He and Vice President<br />

Betty Jue] made only one trek to a confere nce in Los Angeles.<br />

Not able to "Get Away From It All' jim had to stay on the home campus and "Face the<br />

Music", which he did in admirable fashion. In lieu of big ASB dances and entertainments<br />

of for~er years, jim and his staff promoted such activities as the Victory drive for<br />

mag~zlnes, book,S and games to go to service camps; and instead of the big Homec~mlng<br />

~el~bratlo~ and dance, a Victory Dance and Carnival followed the Big Game<br />

With. Whlttle.r. With ~alents to match his "better-than-best" personality, jim took a<br />

leading role In the vanety show and sang hi s way to even greater popularity. Especially<br />

memorable was his able handling of an assembly called to announce the death f<br />

"M ilky" Phelps, one of the best-loved sports heroes State has ever known. 0<br />

Writing a farewell message to the student body jim said: "It is hard to say farewell to<br />

~ student body a,nd faculty that his given to me the finest cooperation and spirit. 'It<br />

is an unusual year we have said, yet State has never let that pharse become an excuse<br />

b~t ra~her a means to adjust and participate in activities aiding the victory we kno~<br />

will ultimately come.<br />

We have given many of our Aztec men and women to the various services. Many are<br />

~ar her?es; for that w.e ~re proud. The~e ~re many on our campus that are doing the<br />

. littleI things, d that multiplied become an intricate part of victory . For that we are excee d -<br />

Ing Y prou .<br />

To you all, good luck and best wishes, and may God speed our victory and peace."<br />

64<br />


WAYES" was the heading of the Aztec story on the resignation of Durlin<br />

Flagg, graduate manager and publications advertising manager. Leaving to work in the<br />

personnel office of a local aircraft company, he was given a surprise farewell party in the<br />

Caf by the Aztec and <strong>Del</strong> Sud staffs. His position is being temporarily filled by Ed Herzig,<br />

who already has a full-time job as manager of the bookstore.<br />

Flagg's office was the "Grand Central Station" of the campus. Conveniently located<br />

in the Bookstore building, his 2x4 hole-in-the-wall was the hangout for athletes, editors,<br />

council members, coaches, professors, and in general anyone who has a grudge or wanted<br />

some money. You could always count on Flagg if you need the loan of a five-spot<br />

-he'd listen to your story, anyway.<br />

The bigger the thrash in his office the better he seemed to like it. He is a fiend for<br />

work and wasn't happy unless he was putting over two or three business deals at once<br />

and talking at the same time with four or five people.<br />

Mr. Flagg, just "Flagg" will do, began his financial reign over the Aztec tribe in 1942.<br />

His regime began, however, when he enrolled with an English major in State Normal<br />

School in 1920, and began handling advertising for the school paper. Through the<br />

years the downtown businessmen have come to know him as "State College."<br />

"The best deal has been traveling<br />

with the teams," confided<br />

Flagg with a typical<br />

tooth - flashing grin. "I remember<br />

one basketball trip<br />

when we stayed at Santa<br />

Ana Air Base, I got back to<br />

the barracks a little later than<br />

the other fellows, but they<br />

were waiting for me - and<br />

then there were those trips<br />

back to the Kansas City tourney!"<br />

Popular with all the<br />

athletes because of his sense<br />

of humor and ability to take<br />

any joke-almost-Flagg also<br />

handled the purse strings on<br />

football, baseball and track<br />

junkets.<br />

SOCIAL<br />

Long the sore spot of college activities,<br />

the routine for scheduling<br />

social events was cleared up this<br />

semester. Dean Mary Mendenhall<br />

was made a member of the social<br />

committee so that activities could<br />

be synchronized through the Dean<br />

of Women's office and the student<br />

calendar. Also all events<br />

whether traditional or new must<br />

pass through the committee, which<br />

acts as a clearing house.<br />

A few of the activities approved<br />

and applauded by the committee<br />

were the frosh receptions, the<br />

Jolly-ups and Stamp Stomps, ASB council dinners, rallies and on-campus programs. Automatically chairman<br />

of the group was Betty Juel, vice-president of the ASB.<br />

RALLY<br />

Stimulating school wide enthusiasm<br />

in connection with the various<br />

student body events, is the duty<br />

of the A. S. Rally Committee.<br />

Especially active during football<br />

and basketball season, the Rally<br />

Board, in addition to the actual<br />

staging of rallies, directs the annual<br />

pushball contest between the<br />

frosh and the sophs. has charge of<br />

the decoration of the stadium, organizes<br />

the rooting section, card<br />

tricks, and rally dances, and organizes<br />

inter-school celebrations,<br />

caravans, bonfires, and send-offs.<br />

The committee inaugurated several new policies this year, the most significant of which was the close cooperation<br />

with the administration in the re-establishment of Fresh hazing, the instigation of a Kangaroo<br />

Court in conjunction with [rosh hazing.<br />

Considered the best rally of the year, the basketball day rally was held in conjunction with the first casaba<br />

game followed by a dance. Katherine Lee reigned as Queen and stole the show in a clinch with Jim Ahler,<br />

captain of the team.<br />

EXTRA<br />


Unifying the extra curricular program of the school fell to the committee under the popular chairman, Dr.<br />

Herbert Peiffer. Five students and<br />

five professors debated problems<br />

concerning school entertainments,<br />

a nd no serious "deadlocks" occurred.<br />

This year the committee<br />

was especially interested in preventing<br />

duplication of effort and<br />

omission of vital activities with<br />

regard to our war program. In<br />

addition, they found time to offer<br />

constructive advice on other matters<br />

relating to activities outside<br />


The job of choosing and scheduling the best in entertainment for the student body fell upon the lectures<br />

and assemblies committee. They<br />

must approve of any major program<br />

to be presented on the<br />

campus before it can be scheduled.<br />

As a result, they find themselves<br />

judging entertainment ranging<br />

from the ridiculous to the<br />

sublime. Due to the war, entertainment<br />

was chosen for quality<br />

rather than quantity. Consequently,<br />

this group had a none too<br />

active year.<br />

Trying to establish and maintain<br />

the "odds" against them has kept<br />

the athletic committee unusually<br />

busy. With men leaving for the<br />

service and with the curteilrnent of<br />

transportation facilities, their's has<br />

been a thankless and most difficult<br />

task, Highest praise is due these<br />

men for their tenacity and persistence<br />

in retaining outstandingly<br />

fine basketball and football schedules,<br />

and in carrying on baseball<br />

and track activities even a fter a II oppor t uru't' res for mee t s an d games with other college teams had vanished.<br />

FLAG<br />

So that we might give due honors to former<br />

Aztecs now in the service, a Service Flag Committee<br />

was appointed, with Dr. Lauren Post as<br />

originator and presiding officer. The result of<br />

this group's efforts is a large pictorial flag on<br />

the wall outside Dean C. E. Peterson's office.<br />

Aim of the group is to complete the flag and<br />

keep it up to date with every former Aztec now<br />

in one of the three branches of the service represented.<br />

In originality and appropriateness the<br />

Service Flag is one of the outstanding achievements<br />

of the year. A gold star is placed after<br />

the names of those killed, while a red star indicates<br />

"wounded in action" and a blue one<br />

"decorated." To Dr. Post and his committee,<br />

we owe gratitude and commendation.<br />


Behind the scenes of a smooth running bookstore or cafe-you'll always find a "master mind." It has this year<br />

been the task of a committee, headed by Dr. Walter Hepner, to smooth out the managerial "kinks" of our<br />

cafe and bookstore, and they have<br />

come through them brilliantly. To<br />

them orchids, or maybe "mouldy<br />

figs?" are in order for their having<br />

text books and "blue books" ready<br />

for use. When not advising the<br />

bookstore, this group concentrated<br />

on giving Clarence and Andy help<br />

in the cafe, where the draft, food<br />

rationing and ravenous appetites<br />

conflicted to cause "nothin' but<br />

troubles."<br />

The novel displays on the Health Department's<br />

bulletin board and the appropos articles<br />

on health in the Aztec can be attributed<br />

to the efforts of the Health and Safety committee,<br />

under the leadership of Dr. Bernice<br />

Stone. Their safety campaign lacked the usual<br />

stress on the dangers of prevention of automobile<br />

accidents and emphasized safety in<br />

the home-the source of the greater share of<br />

minor accidents in the United States.<br />

editor for the<br />

'42, 43 year was Darwin "Bud" Flakoll,<br />

prominent in journalism and governing circles<br />

of 1942, Bud took the Handbook job "just<br />

for fun" and he and Howard Quam had just<br />

that in putting the little book out. Nothing<br />

new and spectacular, the Freshman's Bible<br />

contained the usual list of organizations and<br />

offices, of school songs and sayings, of<br />

sports reviews and calendars. Not published<br />

to make money, but rather to "wise<br />

up" new students, the handbook is given out<br />

at registration<br />

time.<br />

DARWIN<br />



commonly<br />

called "Cupid's Handbook", was edited this<br />

year by Colin Reilly who was aided in the<br />

job by Vincent Sund as Business Manager,<br />

and Durlin Flagg, Advertising Manager.<br />

Sponsored yearly by the local Alpha <strong>Del</strong>ta<br />

Chapter of Alpha Phi Omega, National Service<br />

Fraternity, the little red books sell for<br />

ten cents apiece. Only criticism this year is<br />

that not enouch copies were printed. When<br />

put on the stands they sold like hotcakes and<br />

more were needed. Common phrase about<br />

campus is "Say, have you got a directory I<br />

could<br />

borrow?"<br />

COLIN<br />

REILLY<br />

SPO RT S we republished t his year through the charts of Bob Lantz and<br />

Bill Phelps, both of whom held part-time positions on the local downtown paper. Combining<br />

talents, the two put out the End Zone, souvenir programs, and covered downtown<br />

publicity during the grid season. For basketball, Durlin Flag'i stuck in an aiding<br />

oar by writing copy for the game<br />

programs passed out free at the<br />

door. After all three had left<br />

school, Roy Richards,<br />

Pat Calland,<br />

and Steve Porter took over the<br />

publicity for the remainder of the<br />

track and baseball<br />

seasons.<br />


To be certain the college gets only the best in the way of publicity provides ample<br />

work for those in the Public Relations Committee. The committee wants to be<br />

satisfied that students don't waste time, or in some other way give themselves a black<br />

mark in the eyes of the community. Good publicity makes it certain that there will be no<br />

opportunity for adverse citicism.<br />

In addition, the committee learns<br />

through the public relations channels,<br />

of educational opportunities<br />

offered by the school for their<br />

benefit. This committee has a<br />

"man-sized-job" and has handled<br />

it ably.<br />

ALTHOUGH MEDIEVAL In name, the Art Guild emphasizes<br />

especially, contemporary art, music, and literature.<br />

The organization has the double purpose of stimulating thinking, and promoting art appreciation<br />

in both the college and the community.<br />

Miss Isle Hamann, art instructor is the sponsor of the group. Meetings are conducted<br />

twice monthly; alternately in the craft room at school, and in a member's home. Those<br />

meetings which highlighted the Spring semester were visits to the studios of the following<br />

San Diego artists: Donal Hord, sculptor, Mrs. Paul E. Wedgwood, ceramic artist;<br />

Miss Marion Kendall, weaver; and Mr. Lloyd Ruocco, architect.<br />

The Year's officers were: Fall-President, Winelda Park; Vice-President. Allen Hughes;<br />

Secretary, Roberta Irwin; Treasurer, Lois Klumph. Spring - President, Ruth Kimball;<br />

Vice-President, Virginia Carpenter; Secretary, Frances Burrows; Treasurer, Lois Klumph.<br />

Members: Rina Caporaleti, Pat Sexton, Ruth Kimball, Virginia Carpenter, Frances Barrows,<br />

Nancybelle Ferguson, James Cook, Lucille Hanson, Margaret Hollingsworth, Betty<br />

Price, Enid Edwards, Allen Hughes, Winelda Park, Louise Anderson, Clem Abby, Lois<br />

Students and instructors entered originals and hand-made articles in the Occupational<br />

Therapy contest sponsored by the Modern Museum in New York. Miss Isle Hammon,<br />

member of the department staff, won $100 first prize for a textile design, while Barbara<br />

Holverson Vance added more glory to Monty's crown of fame, by winning $25 for a<br />

hand-carved letter opener. One of the jujges of the contest was so taken with the<br />

letter opener that he wrote Barbara offering to pay her well if she would made him one<br />

like it. Barbara let him keep the original.<br />

Weekly displays in the hall cases in the department keep Aztecs informed on what's<br />

going on down below the library.<br />

The department was also responsible for making the service flag, and for keeping<br />

exhibits in the soundproof fluorescent lighted gallery throughout the year. One of the<br />

most spectacular of these was a display on city planning arranged by Miss Hammon.<br />

Instructors are Everett G. Jackson, lise Hammon, Patti Patterson, and Ivan Messanger.<br />


Haile Chace won the cup for comedy direction with Bob Kelly nabbing the acting<br />

honors. Bill Stocking won tragedy direction honors, and Janet Barnise took the acting<br />

prIZe.<br />

The Variety show, "No Priorities Please", was directed by Haile Chace and produced<br />

under the direction of Bill Cordtz who wrote the script.<br />

Leading parts were taken by Jim Fairchild, Betty Marie Wood, Duane Cantor, Lem<br />

Nelson, Murrey Stirton, and Howard Quam.<br />

TH E BACKBON E of dramatic activity at State is the theater guild<br />

composed of all Aztecs enrolled in Speech Arts classes under the direction of Miss<br />

Sybil Eliza Jones, capable dramatic department head.<br />

Each year the guild sponsors the traditional fall one act play tournament in which any<br />

member of the guild who wishes to may enter a play, cast it, direct it, and produce it;<br />

the play winning the final round wins the, cup for its director.<br />

Cups are also given for both comedy and tragedy acting and art direction.<br />

The guild also produces a fall variety show, and before the war, a Christmas Revels<br />

pageant was a regular on the dramatic program.<br />

In the spring an original one-act play tournament is usually held in addition to a Shakespeare<br />

production and an annual Senior play.<br />

Musical direction was handled by Austin Mason who composed the original musrc.<br />

"Julius Caesar" in modern dress was the annual Shakespeare contribution. Featuring<br />

raised levels and unusual lighting effects, the epic was produced in the little theater<br />

and given free for the benefit<br />

of the student body.<br />

Leading roles were taken by Bob Austin, Bill Stocking, Larry Knechtel, Marna Fleming,<br />

Pat Wallace, George Reed, Haile Chace, and Bob F. Smith.<br />

The climax of all the Theater Guild activities is the annual senior play, usually an old fashioned<br />

melodrama; but this year the famous Broadway hit, "Arsenic and Old Lace"<br />

was the bill of fare.<br />

Hoover High School's new and spacious auditorium was the setting for the poisonous<br />

laff<br />

riot.<br />

Winning parts in this year's senior play were: Fred Shields, Jim Lowell, Murrey Stirto~,<br />

Martha Novac, Jim Fairchild, Betty Juel, Bob Rivera, George Reed, Phil Bulot, Bill<br />

Dialogues", a series of weekly radio sketches written, enacted, and produced by the<br />

students of San Diego State College, and supervised by Miss Sybil Jones, head of the<br />

drama department. If you listened to KFSD on Wednesdays, from 4: 15 to 4:30, you<br />

may have heard that quiet boy from your biology lab~ threatening a mob of saboteurs<br />

with 'fire and brimstone if they dared to carry out their hideous plan. In cooperation<br />

with the Blue Network, Staters produced scripts dealing with crucial war-time problems.<br />

The program was dedicated to the winning of the war.<br />

The class in radio production has studied all phases of the technique of radio-sound<br />

effects, sound equipment, directing, acting. But perhaps the most unique phase of the<br />

study is that the students write their own scripts. This involves much more work but<br />

the class thereby has the distinction of being the only one of its kind in a California<br />

college.<br />


and the minor in music are,<br />

for harmonious purposes,<br />

noted together as the Music<br />

Guild. On one Thursday a<br />

month they are keyed up to<br />

give a concert, in which they<br />

have an opportunity for performance<br />

experience. Spring<br />

was heralded by the first college<br />

musical event of the<br />

semester - the Music Guild<br />

presentation of a recital by<br />

an ex-Aztec baritone, Louis<br />

De Mangus.<br />

The group responds to the baton of sponsorship waved by Miss Deborah Smith, and to the baton of<br />

leadership waved by their president and five board members, each of whom is president of a musical<br />

organ ization.<br />

Under this able direction, the campus and the community are introduced to the accomplishments of<br />

the music department. Kcepinc the members on key this year were Clarice Cheney, president, assisted<br />

by those "five lines on her staff": Jack Jackson, Warren Tait, Dick Page, Charlotte Morrison, and Genevieve<br />

Millican.<br />

HARD EST HIT grouD in the music department was Men's Glee, which dwindled since<br />

the war to a mere 15 members. Those 15 included reserves and fellows who are working part time, so<br />

the group has not been able to take any night dates this semester.<br />

They made a trip to the high schools, presented a formal concert, and sang at churches in San Diego.<br />

Because of the small group out for singing, there was no men's quartet this year.<br />

Richard Page led the group<br />

as president this year and<br />

Colin Reilly was vice-president.<br />

Ordell Wolfe was<br />

Treasurer and David deAryan<br />

served as librarian. Warren<br />

Tait was accompaniest for<br />

the group.<br />

Although the group was<br />

I<br />

small, the tone quality and<br />

ballance were were very good<br />

and they made, as Miss<br />

Christine Springston, director,<br />

states, "the nicest sounding<br />

group in many years."<br />

ON LY MUSICALLY are lines and spaces a concern of<br />

Treble Clef. For the line forms to the left, and all the spaces are filled when<br />

this group gives a performance. Their programs this year have been a successful<br />

blending of tradition and war-mindedness. Tradition appeared in the concert<br />

which is sponsored annually by the Phi Sigma Nu sorority, and which was held<br />

this year at the San Diego Woman's Clubhouse. A formal affair, it is the big<br />

event on Treble Clef's calendar.<br />

And "Teacher" Smith and her "Chillins" did their part by singing for u.s.a.<br />

activities, at the Army and Navy "Y", and by entertaining for servicemen at<br />

the local Churches. Their most successful and memorable college program of<br />

the year was given in November. At that time, they presented to the campus<br />

their newly chosen soloist, Richard Page, of whom they were deservedly proud.<br />

The "note-abies" who held office this year were, Charlotte Morrison, president;<br />

Peggy Bodien, vice-president; Jayne Seely, secretary; Betty Ratcliffe,<br />

treasurer; Nancy Watenpaugh, business manager; and calendar-watchers Mary<br />

Alice Leipper and Diana Quint, who were the birthday chairmen.<br />

"Little sister" to the Chamber Music group is the String Quartet composed of four members of<br />

the orchestra who are also among the Chamber Musicians.<br />

This year's group consisted of Genevieve Millican, violin and concert-mistress; Danny Lewis, violin;<br />

It is composed of four selected singers from Treble Clef. The positions are gained by try-outs, and<br />

the four whose voices blend together the best are chosen. This year the group was composed of<br />

all sophomores: Anita Knox, first soprano; Marjorie Cuesta, second soprano; Louise Abbott, first<br />

A CA PPELLA activities this year were increased instead of lessened<br />

by the war conditions. A major part of their program consisted in singing for the<br />

service boys at the Army and Navy "Y".<br />

An organization of five years standing, A Cappella is made up of students who like to<br />

sing and have some talent for it. The group specializes in sacred and secular songs, and<br />

sings in churches and at baccalaureate services as well as performing at the "Y".<br />

The war spoiled one plan of giving concerts in the park, a plan conceived and all but<br />

carried out by Warren Teit, president of the group. Other A Cappella officers were:<br />

James Reading, vice-president; Wanda Clark, secretary-treasurer, and Frances Littl~field,<br />

Robe Mistress. The latter's job is to see that the sixty traditionally golden robes<br />

are kept in order.<br />

Though a limit of sixty IS made for the organization, this war-year showing of forty<br />

singers was considered excellent. According to Deane Smith, their director, members<br />

have "a swell time, in addition to earning a half a unit for their work." The group, meeting<br />

as a regular class, practices three times a week.<br />

THE BAND this<br />

year was "rationed" as to<br />

members: players were cut<br />

from the approximate fortyfive<br />

of former years to a<br />

group of sixteen.<br />

Badly missed was two-thirds<br />

of the "Unholy Three" as Advisor<br />

Julius Leib called the<br />

team of Johnny Fox, Jack<br />

Hubbard and Jack Jackson.<br />

Jackson, the only one who<br />

survived the call of the service,<br />

stayed on to direct the 1943 band.<br />

The group played for rallys, assemblies and for all home games; trips were out this year. In addition to<br />

the school songs and marches, the group tried few popular pieces that were really popular.<br />

and on intermission programs at a few of the dances, as well as providinq the music for various organization<br />

entertainments.<br />

Individually, too, members of the group did their part for the furthering of music. Erling Rohde has<br />

worked UP a twelve piece orchestra<br />

which plays at numerous<br />

dances. Bill Kraft is noted<br />

for his aqility on the skins,<br />

and has made many an intermission<br />

THE 0 RC HE 5T RA this year brings to mind that oft-used phrase,<br />

"quality, but not quantity." The loss of man-power in this group was so sharply felt<br />

that it left them "flat". Play upon words aside, the orchestra of thirty pieces worked<br />

well and made fine showings at the Pan-American celebration during the spring semester,<br />

and at the graduation<br />

ceremonies.<br />

Julius Leib might well be proud of his group, which has as its concert mistress Genevieve<br />

was the time. Scripps cottage, the<br />

place. The occasion was the Associated<br />

Women Students Boa r d<br />

Meeting. Eighteen girls, officers,<br />

chairmen and representatives of all<br />

the campus co-ed organizations,<br />

gathered to plan the activities and<br />

the future of the women students<br />

on campus-and had a wonderful<br />

time doing it!<br />

Early in the semester President Chris<br />

on behalf of the college women presented<br />

Ish Galligan with a tiny silver<br />

gavel pin in appreciation of her work<br />

as A WS prexy the preceeding year.<br />

Laughs. recall Virginia Wells as the Board's best "motion-maker" and the dramatic letters<br />

from Life Magazine, A WS's most faithful correspondent!<br />

One meeting each semester was held at Quetzal Hall with refreshments and complete<br />

tours of just what was new in each room.<br />

TH ERE WAS NO "business as usual" for the Associated Women<br />

Students in this war-minded year. Business was adjusted and modified to the standards<br />

of the war effort. A sincere attempt was made to have the college ~irls realize that each<br />

has her part in the war effort and her responsibility is to do it well.<br />

Outstanding assembly of the year was the presentation of W AACS, WAVES, Marines,<br />

and examples industry and teaching opportunities planned to guide the college<br />

girl in her puzzling vocational choice. The A WS Board established a policy of not recognizing<br />

social activities on campus during study hours. The speeded curriculum stimulated<br />

the recognition of the need for more intense study with fewer distractions.<br />

The A WS Annual Banquet on March 18 being informal was recognition of the<br />

portation problem. Out-of-T owners were welcomed by a party at the zoo.<br />

Hawkins Day was scheduled to be over before the dim-out.<br />

trans-<br />

Sadie<br />

Aztec girls were encouraged to attend the Army and Navy YMCA USO dances. Numerous<br />

dances were held in connection with the National Association of University<br />

Women when the college co-eds turned out en-masse.<br />

The A WS Board's traditional party the first semester was waved aside as the members<br />

spent the afternoon gift wrapping. service men's Christmas packages at the Army and<br />

the meeting to order every<br />

Glenellen Doran put in the<br />

banker's hours.<br />

Representatives fro m the<br />

elevn campus sororities sat<br />

around the table (and on the<br />

heater) and expressed eleven<br />

different opinions and decided<br />

eleven different futures.<br />

Early in the semester the<br />

council thanked Grace for the get-acquainted dinner at her home before school started.<br />

Old business recalled the days when fur flew about merging sororities and bidding first<br />

semester frosh. In the end, no sororities merged, and incoming frosh were bid in a rush<br />

of weekend, daytime parties.<br />

News that Vice President Peggy Peters had survived two seiges of bid letters and accompanying<br />

headaches was announced with pride.<br />

Two pledge banquets and a Christmas time Inter-sorority Inter-fraternity formal dance<br />

were checked off the calendar.<br />

The council congratulated Margie Strong for winnning the fifty dollar sorority scholarship<br />

with a grade point average to be proud of.<br />

Epsilon Pi Theta won the Inter-sorority sports cup, Sports Chairman Nancy Julian announced.<br />

Each sorority can now boast a turn at wrapping Aztecs and pasting on the addresses<br />

which sent them to ex-Staters in the armed services all over the world.<br />

Though it was admitted a struggle to meet those quotas, Chairman Jane Hesser reported<br />

that the combined efforts of the sororities in buying war stamps has sent 6,500<br />

rounds of anti-air craft sh~lls to the war fronts. Sorority pledges peddled war stamps<br />

at the basketball games In further co-operation with th,e campus War Stamp Drive.<br />

With a "thank you" to Sponsor Mrs. Frances<br />

Torbet, and a successful year to look back<br />

on the council passed the motion that the<br />

semester be adjourned.<br />

THE WOMEN'S GYM is one of the most<br />

active places on campus, especially with the arrival of warm weather.<br />

Many girls spend at least an hour a day toasting on the sun deck above<br />

the gym offices, or lounging on the grass in the patio.<br />

At noon many co-eds gather to sunbathe and to play badminton or<br />

ping-pong after eating their lunches. The building is open all day long<br />

and one of the gym teachers is always keeping track to see that no one<br />

gets badly burned or overheated.<br />

Outdoor sports are favored during these balmy days, and there are<br />

plenty of them offered. Team games such as field hockey and softball<br />

are popular, as are the more individual sports like tennis and archery.<br />

On stormy days the team-games classes have their choice of basketball<br />

or volleyball, and a favorite individual indoor sport is badminton. Other<br />

indoor classes offered are folk-dancing and fundamental skills.<br />

Every semester the WRA offers all sports-minded co-eds a chance to<br />

display their skill in friendly athletic competitions.<br />

Two ,other popular classes are Tennis: Ruth Kimball, Josephine Tisdale, Madge Watrous, and Winona<br />

~lorJous; and Badminton: Sarah Jane Grey, Pat Herney, Fern Raley, Betty Cooper and Muriel Bennett,<br />

Instructor.<br />

WIN N ING WIT H EAS E Epsilon Pi Theta copped the cup in<br />

the inter-sorority sports competition this year. Running UP a score of 400, the winners<br />

topped all competitors in badminton, basketball<br />

and swimming, and came second in bowling<br />

and archery. Of the six sports offered,<br />

volley ball was the only one in which they failed<br />

to place.<br />

Organized by Nancy Julian, sports chairman,<br />

inter-sorority meet introduced a new feature<br />

this year when finals of the last sport, volley<br />

ball, were run off on the afternoon of Feminine.<br />

Frolics. Defeating the Phi Kappa Gammas,<br />

the Phi Sigma Nu's nevertheless were able to<br />

chalk up only 150 points to earn third place in<br />

the meet, while their opponents, last year's<br />

champs, made it 275 to win second place.<br />

Tied for fourth place with 125 counters apiece<br />

were Kappa Theta and Shen Yo. Mrs. Frances<br />

Torbert presented the cup to the Epsilon Pi<br />

Thetas at Feminine Frolics. It was their first<br />

time in the winner's circle.<br />

Team games were held in the men's gym at<br />

noon, and eccordinc to Nancy and Muriel<br />

Bennett, sponsor of inter-sorority sports, the<br />

turnouts were among the best of any of the<br />

yea r1y contests.<br />

Outstanding individual was probably Marion<br />

Ausness who won all three of her swimming<br />

events, and teamed with Robley Baskerville to<br />

win badminton.<br />

All of those shooting over 100 in the beginners<br />

round in archery were automatically entered<br />

in a national inter-collegiate telegraphic meet.<br />

Demonstrating their bowling form with volley balls are ,Betty<br />

Ratcliffe and Pat Scidmore, Phi Kappa Gamma team. W,nners<br />

of the sports cup, Robley Baskerville, Jo Estelle Powe~, Margaret<br />

Hughes, and Kathryn McColl, Epsilon Pi Theta, take time out for<br />

a drink. Harriet Webb, Gloria Weems, Winifred Newell, Betty<br />

Sage, Harriet Humphrey and Wynelle Watson, Kappa The~,as and<br />

runners up in the basketball tourney talk over how they shoul~<br />

have played it." Eloise Hanson and Mary Bamford, Theta ChI,<br />

practice some badminton shots.

WOMEN on campus took part<br />

in the first Women's war assembly ever<br />

held at State on March 10 when the A WS<br />

presented "Opportunities for Women in<br />

Wartime" in the little theater.<br />

Major Ruth Streeter, National leader of<br />

the women Marines, addressed co-eds<br />

with many interesting pointers on her<br />

branch of the service. She told the girls<br />

that the Marines, Waves and Spars are all<br />

under the same rules, and the only difference<br />

as far as choosing was to decide<br />

whether one looked best in Olive qrcen<br />

or Navy Blue. This was the first college<br />

group to be addressed by Maj Streeter<br />

who, with two others of the only four commissioned<br />

women of the Marine reserve,<br />

was touring the country. Accompanying<br />

Major Streeter were Captain Evelyn Bailey<br />

and Lieutenant Louise Stewart.<br />

Lt. (jg) M. K. Hiqqins, of the Waves gave<br />

an amusing and informative address on<br />

what to expect of the Waves, and questions<br />

which are asked by many applicants.<br />

Her best point was when she related that<br />

so many of the girls wondered if when<br />

they joined the Waves it was for life. She<br />

always liked to put them at ease by telling<br />

them that by ioining they would not<br />

necessarily become permanent waves!<br />

Waac representative Lt. Florence E. Morris<br />

told co-eds of chances for advancement<br />

in the Waacs. It is not necessary to<br />

be a college graduate to be an officer in<br />

the Women's army; she informed interested<br />

co-eds that it was the first time she<br />

had been inside a college.<br />

Edwina Taylor questions Captain Evelyn Bailey and M.ajor<br />

Ruth Streeter, Marine Women's Reserve. FrancesJane<br />

O'Neill, Lieutenant M. K. Higgins of the Waves, Lieutenant<br />

Florence Morris of the Waacs, and Yvette Magagnos e<br />

cross the street to inspect Scripps Cottage. Dr. Walter<br />

Hepner grins under the escort of Lieutenant Higgins anld<br />

Lieutenant Morris. Big joke. Presented at the assem~ y<br />

were Dean Mendenhall, Yvette, the Lieutenants, Major<br />

Streeter and Christine Dickman.<br />

FIRST AID AND NURSES' AID have been popular<br />

courses among the feminine members of the student body since the bombing of<br />

Pearl Harbor.<br />

This semester's class has twenty-four students all working for their Standard First Aid<br />

rating, according to Muriel Bennett, instructor of the course. Miss Bennett earned her<br />

teaching credential by taking the standard instructors course Riven by the Red Cross.<br />

Most serious need at present is a "victim"; anyone wishing to be practiced on by beginning<br />

First Aiders should apply at Miss Bennett's office.<br />

Nurses' Aid class is under the supervision of Mrs. Marilynn Fenwick, college nurse. Given<br />

in the training school building, the course is worth three units to those working 195<br />

hours, 150 of which must be taken at a hospital.<br />

Doing the menial tasks at the hospital, Nurses' Aids thus release regular nurses for more<br />

important work. While at a hospital the girls are under the Red Cross supervisor, and do<br />

such jobs as carrying food trays, making beds, putting away supplies, arranging flowers<br />

for the patients, and looking after children.. Each member of the Nurses' Aid is responsible<br />

for her own uniform which includes long white stockings and low white shoes.<br />

While working they must wear their hair up off the collar.<br />

First Aiders demonstrating some of the splints and bandages they have 'learned are: Betty Jane Tyner, Eloise Muzikar,<br />

Jane Collard, Palma Londo, Margaret Fisher, Margaret Prince, Jo Estelle Power (front row). Meryl Cook (seated). Maryedna<br />

Goldsmith, Shirley Langlois, Mary Lambron, Grace Tupper (back row). In the Nurses' Aid group this semester are, front<br />

row: Margaret Dietrich, Joyce Brubaker, Meryl Cook, Jane Leeper, Nancy Julian, Anne Nicol; and in the back row: Roberta<br />

Billings with Mrs. Marilyn Fenwick, instructor.

MEDICAL HEAD of San Diego State College is Dr. Berenice Stone<br />

who h s held the position for seven years. Her job is to take care of the daily stream<br />

of sore throats, headches and sick stomachs. With the great influx of people from other<br />

states, there have been introduced several new kinds of colds and intestinal flue. It is up<br />

to Dr. Stone to diagnose any of these and decide on treatment.<br />

She is aided in the Health Office by Mrs. Marilyn Fenwick, registered nurse, who has<br />

been with the school for twelve years. Dr. Richard Peck comes on campus two days a<br />

week to examine and treat the men needing medical attention. One of his greatest jobs<br />

this year has been to build up the morale of boys turned down for physical reasons by<br />

the reserves. Dr. Peck replaced Dr. O. S. Harbaugh who left last year to head the surgical<br />

department in Walla Walla, Washington.<br />

Another important member of the health staff is Dr. George Huff, prominent local specialist<br />

on women's diseases, who teaches a class on the Physiology of Reproduction. Dr.<br />

Huff is teaching on his own initiative considering it oart of his contributon to the times.<br />

Dream of the department is the Health cottage to be built someday next to Scripps<br />

cottage. The building, planned in 1939 by Dr. Stone, Mrs. Fenwick and President Hepner<br />

with the college architects, will have individual examining rooms and two infirmaries.<br />

Dr. Berenice Stone and Mrs. Marilyn Fenwick admire blue-prints of the Health Cottage to be. Dr. Richard Peck examines<br />

a patient.<br />

curtailment was the<br />

keynote of the Interfraternity<br />

program of<br />

the year. Rationing of<br />

gas, tires and food made<br />

it necessary to cut the<br />

spring rush season to the<br />

shortest in fraternity history<br />

at State. The usual<br />

five week period of informal<br />

rushing was sliced<br />

to ten days.<br />

Call of the services<br />

made serious inroads on<br />

the membership of several<br />

frats.<br />

Don Eidemiller, as interfraternity<br />

president of<br />

the year, had man y<br />

knotty problems to face.<br />

There was criticism that<br />

fraternities were a hindrance<br />

rather than a<br />

help to war efforts, and<br />

a few people felt that they ought to disband for the duration. To meet this challenging<br />

situation, Inter-frat council sponsored contests and drives to collect scrap, sell stamps, and<br />

promote physical fitness by an intensified Inter-fraternity sports schedule. Much credit<br />

should g0 to Tom Lyles for organizing and executing the fraternity stamp drive in which<br />

each fr~t sold approximately three stamps per member each week.<br />

Credit ~l'Jd. high praise go also to Athletic Commissioner Joe Suozzo for his skillful handling<br />

of a difficult job. The trick was to schedule competition when it wouldn't conflict with<br />

gym classes, working hours or class hours ... a trick,~bl:Jt Joe did it to everyone's satisf~c~Jon.<br />

FIRST WARTIME GRID SEASON in history of<br />

the San Diego State of present location was noteworthy for a poor season, a record<br />

turnout of material, and the first lightweight team in the annals of State football.<br />

.<br />

For the first time, an Aztec eleven failed to win a single 'lame, the high spot of the<br />

season being a tie with Pomona in the opener.<br />

In spite of the won-lost records, football at State did a job this past season and did it<br />

well. Hiqh tide for all time was the total of 106 football uniforms checked out to the<br />

three squads, and most of them were filled all season. Never before have so many men<br />

at one time ~otten the physical conditioning benefits of football at State.<br />

The Lightweights proved an instant success. Enthusiastic response met the first call,<br />

and all through the season rousinq football,-traditionally a game for big men-was<br />

played by the lighties. If demand is any criterion, lightweight teams are here to stay.<br />

Three individuals stood out on the 1942 Aztec Varsity grid machine, which failed to<br />

distinguish itself as a unit. One of them, Capt. Joe Seminario, earned his third letter, the<br />

only three year letterman ernonq 20 award winners. Sherwood Parker earned his second<br />

letter and was voted the most valuable man of the team by his mates. Stewart Worden,<br />

sophomore fullback, won his spurs as a varsity man for a season of consistent play<br />

in an undermanned backfield.<br />

128<br />

SADDLED with the tough head-coaching job at the last minute was affable<br />

John Eubank, from Washington State. Taking over on less than two weeks' notice, when<br />

mentors Leo Calland and Charlie Smith were called into the service, Eubank did an<br />

admirable job, aided by Assistant Doil Millsap and Trainer Les Cook. A stranger here<br />

until appointed varsity ~rid coach, t.an, bespectacled Eubank is by no means a stranger<br />

to fooball in either playing or coaching branches. After a couple of seasons of high<br />

school coaching and armed with a master's<br />

degree, the friendly coach moved to his Alm.a<br />

Mater to assit Orin "Babe" Hollingberry on the<br />

Washington State staff.<br />

Playing for Washington State in the Pacific<br />

Coast conference from 1931-34, Eubank booted<br />

his way to fame, winning more than one fray with<br />

a lest-second field goal.<br />

Twirling the batons were Iris Zaun, Alice George<br />

and Jo Tisdale. Highli'lht of the year from the<br />

entertainment standpoint was their performance<br />

with the fine March Field military band.<br />

Sonq Leaders Meryl Cook, Jane Carrol, and<br />

Jeanne Breazeale qeve pep ,and charm to the<br />

proceedings, aided by Jack Jackson's rally band.<br />

Tonsil bendinq cheers from the Aztec rooting<br />

section were led by Dan Votaw, Ted Skelley, and<br />

Morrie Naiman. Top trick of the year was the<br />

huge red thumb with a big white Go mutely urging<br />

on the attack.<br />

Coach John Eubank explains a play to Kurt Klemmer. "Huddle"<br />

over instructions from the "Boss". Dressing room scene shows<br />

Manager Bud East and Coach Eubank taping Garold "Spit" Spitler's<br />

injured wrist.

MARCH FIELD 39--ST ATE 6<br />

San Diego played their best ball game of the year aqainst the power-stocked Fliers, but<br />

were outclassed from the first kickoff. Players like All-American Jimmy Nelson trotted<br />

in from the Flier bench all afternoon, and lived up to their reputations the hard wayagainst<br />

a scrapping ball club which made them fight for every inch.<br />


All the Aztecs found at the end of the rai nbow on their first trip was a surprising upset<br />

by an underdog Cal Poly eleven. The Staters were unable to master the Mustangs'<br />

tricky 'T' formation, and back Jim Yates personally romped to three touchdowns to rub<br />

it in. State's scores came on a pass interception and a single-handed drive by Fullback<br />

Stew Worden.<br />

I ,<br />

Drum majorettes Iris Zaun, Josephine Tisdale, Alice Marie George, and songleaders Jane Carroll, Meryl Cook, and Jeanne<br />

Breazeale.<br />

POMONA 6--ST A TE 6<br />

The curtain raiser started off well, with the Aztecs holding a one-touchdown margin<br />

at the half on a pass play, Blaisdell to Val Robbins. But Pomona came back fighting and<br />

tied it up to stay on the passes of Bob Ewing, their fine southpaw back. As in some<br />

later tilts, the Aztecs won the statistics but couldn't put their edge on the scoreboard.<br />

FRESNO 66--ST A TE 0<br />

After being held for a quarter, a magnificent Bulldog scoring machine broke loose and<br />

was never checked. Jackie Fellows and his great backfield mates made yards and touchdowns<br />

with monotonous regularity, snowing under an out-manned Aztec eleven which fell<br />

to pieces under the onslaught. State never threatened.<br />

REDLANDS 14--STATE 12<br />

San Diego held an edge throughout, but tied up inside the 20-yard stripe all afternoon.<br />

State trailed 14-0 ~oing into the third perio d, but finally woke up to punch over two<br />

scores in less than three minutes. The Aztecs qarnered 10 first downs to five for the<br />

pass-minded visitors, but couldn't make their yardage payoff.<br />

SAN JOSE STATE 26--ST A TE 0<br />

An underdog Aztec eleven held the potent Soartans scoreless with an inspired firsthalf<br />

defense, but collapsed in the second chapter and offered only desultory hindrance<br />

to the home team. The defeat was expected, but the first-half stand, and the secondhalf<br />

turnover were not.<br />

WHITTIER 26--STATE 0<br />

Scorinc in every period, the Poets concluded the poorest season in Aztec grid history<br />

by taking the victory after a hard-played tussle. The visitors dominated play, but were<br />

forced to press for evcrvthinc they got by an alert and rude San Diego defense. The<br />

Aztecs fired uo late in the second period for one score, to match the Poet scoring in the<br />

early stage of the second half. Trailing by one touchdown, the San Diegans shot the<br />

works, but failed to score. Whittier took over and put the game on ice early in the<br />

fourth quarter, and confined their attentions from there on to countering desperate efforts<br />

by the Aztecs.<br />

Songleader; pose with Whittier girls at home game. Quam gives with a little typical halftime entertainment.<br />


JOE SEMINARIO-concluded three years of high<br />

class play at running guard. Hustling all the time,<br />

kept the team which he captained always in there<br />

fighting. "Semi" impressed Fresno enough in the<br />

66-0 debacle to be picked on their all-opponent<br />

eleven.<br />

. SHERWOOD PARKER-played almost the entire<br />

season at the pivot, a new position for him, and did<br />

well enough to earn votes of teammates as most<br />

valuable. He filled in almost without relief, and<br />

did an impressive Job.<br />

STEWART WORDEN-was the only offensive<br />

punch in a sub-par backfield. Nailed down scoring<br />

honors for the season by plunging over with the<br />

close ones, and did some' fine punting when it was<br />

most needed.<br />

MORRIE SHEPHERD-stepped into a first string<br />

backfield berth and played more ball than any<br />

other Aztec. Morrie proved himself a fine defensive man on passes, and constant threat on the receiving<br />

end. He earned his second letter.<br />

HOWARD WHITE-transferred late but was starting end toward the last of the year. Played some<br />

fine defensive ball and added punch to passing attack.<br />

VAL ROBBINS-earned his first letter at end. Fast, aggressive and one of the best blockers among<br />

the wingmen. Helped fire up infrequent offensive bursts which punctuated play.<br />

AL NESVOLD-tackle on the alternate line which sparked many scoring plays. Played consistent ball<br />

on the forward wall all season. VAL earned his first letter.<br />

WARREN BUTCHER-tackle from the '39 frosh who played his first varsity season as a senior.<br />

"Butch" developed fast after a two-year lay-off and was a valuable addition to the line forces. Won<br />

his first varsity award.<br />

FRED SMITH-classy running guard who spelled Se.minario all seas?n and looke? as good while<br />

doing it. Fred won his first varsity letter after winning a numeral With last season s frosh.<br />

HARRY GALPIN-another vet from the frosh, played at quarter ,and added speed to offense. Got<br />

away for several nice gains after catching passes. Earned his first varsity letter.<br />

ART BLAISDELL-former Coronado flash, started at tailback all season, shifty and a fine passer,<br />

sparked most of the scoring efforts with his tosses, won his first award.<br />

BILL KENYON-only Frosh letterman on varsity squad. Bill played standing guard and showed lots<br />

of stuff for a yearling.<br />

BOB DONCHESKI-another ex-frosh, Bob is fast and<br />

husky and looked good in his appearances at fullback<br />

and half. A hard runner and vicious blocker.<br />

BOB GANGER-a frosh playing his first season of college<br />

ball, Bob filled in at the pivot and developed fast.<br />

Saw quite a bit of action at the end of the season.<br />

BOB RAPHAEL-burly backfield man from the '41 frosh,<br />

showed proficiency at smacking opposing lines.<br />

JOHNNY RITCHEY-was uncovered as a passin? star<br />

with the J. V.'s midway in the season and stepped Into a<br />

varsity berth for the Cal Poly game.<br />

SENIOR MANAGER JOHN ROCKEY-tended team for<br />

second season and did swell job. Won his second managerial<br />

award.<br />

LOUIE POLUZZI-earned his second letter at standing guard. Lou was held in check with a bad<br />

knee most of the season, but played steady ball in spite of all handicaps.<br />

GAROLD SPITLER-started most of the games at quarterback and won his second award. Played<br />

fine defensive ball most of the season, and stood out for fine tackling when it was needed. Played<br />

best ball of career in tough spots.<br />

DICK DAVIS-bulwarked a. disappointing line from a tackle spot and earned his second letter. Up<br />

and downer, but rose to heights when team took fire. Used bulk to advantage on blocking.<br />

CURT .CLEMMER-after a slow send:off settled down to start some late season games at tackle and<br />

earn his second letter. Fast, aggressive and canny, Curt turned in some good performances.<br />

GIB BRISTOW-~as laid out. with a ba~ knee for th: season, after being counted on heavily at the<br />

PiVOt. Stepped Into a coaching berth With fhe J. V. s and helped out there. Earned his second<br />

award.<br />

Lieutenant-commander Leo B. Calland, former coach of Aztec elevens,<br />

hands out trophies to Maggie Hollingsworth, Ph, Kappa Gamma,<br />

and her pair of Hardy Hall "Horses" for the winning of the Wheelbarrow<br />

race. Pushball contest was won by the Frosh. Don, Ted and<br />

Morrie lead some yells at a rally in the open-a" theater.<br />

VAL ROBBINS-started most of the games at end and played his usual rampaging defense. Constant<br />

threat on receiving end of passes. Lettered for the second year.<br />

BILL MACKERSIE-another slow starter, Bill caught fire the last of the season, and looked like a<br />

world-beater. Lettered for the second season.<br />

BOB WEBB-sta.rted at end and was shifted to backfield for Cal Poly game. Injury to his back in<br />

that fray kept him out for the rest of the season. Won his first award.<br />

The combined squads represented the largest football turnout ever seen at State. A hundred and fifteen fellows came<br />

out for practice.<br />

IN RES PO N 5 E to the call for grid candidates<br />

for State's<br />

first lightweight eleven in history, nearly fifty men turned out to go through<br />

an eight game season under Coaches Tom Jones and Ed Hunt. The<br />

Lighties were not too successful from the won-lost standpoint, but interest<br />

was high and if possible next season, the Aztecs will be represented<br />

another lightweight team. The Papooses played most of their games as<br />

preliminaries to the Varsity contests in the Bowl, and pleased spectators<br />

with their speed and fight.<br />

Awarded letters at the season's end were: Harlow Bell, Jack Bruner, John<br />

Burnett, Bruce Clapp, Lane Cole, Dick Collier, Donn DeMaree, Tim English,<br />

THE<br />

J. V.' 5, reserves from the huge varsity turnout, had the<br />

best won-lost percentage<br />

at guards; the Aztecs preceded to win six straight games before bowing to Pepperdine<br />

on the 16th of January.<br />

In the second game of the season against Air Base Group 2, Ahler broke all previous<br />

scoring records when he tallied 28 points. The following week the Aztecs split with<br />

Santa Ana Army Air Base with Ahler agai n hi~h man of the series, and then the squad<br />

left for the first of two memorable road trips.<br />

Back from the trip with a record of 2 wi ns and one loss a~ainst Whittier and Oxy<br />

Colleges, the Aztecs knocked off the highly touted 57th Battalion team from Camp<br />

Callan for the second time and then split with Whittier in a return series.<br />

THE ODDS WERE AGAI NST the 1942-43 Varsity<br />

Basketball squad. There was no C.c.A.A. competition. There was a lack of experienced<br />

ball players. There was a decided drop of public interest in the casaba sport. They had<br />

to play most of their games in the San Diego High School gym despite the fact that<br />

they worked out on the College court. They had to battle gas rationing, dimouts, and<br />

a reduced budget.<br />

Yes, the odds were against them, but with student coaches Don DeLauer and Dick<br />

Mitchell holding the reins, the Aztec five put on repeated fast finishes which won the<br />

plaudits of students and down-town fans alike.<br />

Ana Army Air Base. Pepperdine had just knocked off U. S. C., was preparing to leave<br />

for Kansas City to enter the tourney won by the Aztecs two years ,ago.<br />

The final series of the season resulted in a lop-sided win for San Diego over the Coast<br />

Guard five from Wilmington, and a loss to hichly-publicized 20th Century Fox.<br />

Davis ~raduated in mid-season, and Hal Summers took over his guard spot. Forward<br />

Bill Downing and guard Denzil Walden also saw considerable action and contributed<br />

several hiqh-scoring efforts.<br />

THE BEE SQ UAD, also coached by Mitchell and DeLauer, ran into<br />

trouble in the form of lack of practice and loss of ball players; but with the fighting Aztec<br />

spirit of their big brother varsity players, came out by winning as many games as they<br />

lost.<br />

The Bees played local high school teams, service teams, the frosh squad from Pepperdine,<br />

and several aircraft company fives.<br />

In the first games of the season, Coaches Mitchell and DeLauer generally started a lineup<br />

composed of Red Williams and Bob Melton at forwards; Dick Page at center; and Hardy<br />

Kuykendall and Johnny Babick at guards. Along about mid-season, however, Page dropped<br />

off the squad .end Babick moved up to the varsity. Lem Nelson took over Page's<br />

spot, Melton moved to guard to replace Babick, and Karl Marshall started in the other<br />

forward<br />

position.<br />

These men were ably supported by Bob Crumly, forward; Dave deAryan, center; Jay<br />

Stuart, guard; Charles Hicky, guard; Chuck Ayars, center; Don Smedley, guard; and<br />

Buddy Caldwell, forward.<br />

Several players were forced to drop off the squad before much of the season had gone<br />

by. To the armed services went Dale Jackson, Dick Gooding, Bob McCarthy, and Pete<br />

Manos. Many of these boys would be considered good varsity material for next year<br />

if any came back and if there is a team next year.<br />

April 20, Uncle Sam created the final touch when he called the Navy V-7's to active.<br />

duty. Co-coaches Mitchell and Menke, catcher Thomas, shortstop Downing, and center-fielder<br />

Ouade were the future sailors who departed. This left one letterman, Summers,<br />

to revamp the San Diego State College Varsity Baseball team into a winning nine.<br />

In this task, Summers was far more successful than anyone had expected. At press time<br />

the Aztecs had victories over the Coast Guard and Hoover to their credit. The rejuvenated<br />

lineup included Louie Poluzzi, catcher; Skiles, Summers, or Harold Clark, pitching;<br />

Marshall on first; Hayes on second or short; Skiles also on short, Gordy Hunziker at third,<br />

Bob Melton in left field, Jack Emery in center, and Johnny Babick in right.<br />

Left to right, back row: Karl Marshall, Johnny Babick, Ralph Skiles, Bob Menke, Denzil Estes, Bill Downing, Manager<br />

George Capatanos. Front row: Bud Quade, Dick Mitchell, Hal Summers, Gordon Hunzicker, Jack Emery, Bob Thomas,<br />

Coach Les Cook.<br />

Considering the records of three teams all playing as the State Varsity, the ledger read<br />

17 wins against 8 losses. Ross Doll, Roy Richards, and Earl Woodhouse are others who<br />

finished out the season.<br />

MARCH 3 I 1943 approximately 25 varsity baseball candidates<br />

greeted Coach Les Cook, former pro ball player and Padre trainer, in his first year at<br />

State in a coaching capacity.<br />

At the time prospects looked good, five returning lettermen and a number of promising<br />

freshmen. The early starting lineup saw Bob Thomas behind the plate; Dick Mitchell or<br />

Ralph Skiles on the mound, Karl Marshall on first, Bob Menke or Griffie Hayes at second,<br />

Bill Downing on short, Denzil Estes at third, Hal Summers in left field, Bud Ouade in<br />

center, and usually Skiles in right.<br />

With this experienced aggregation, the Aztecs started out by winning all but three of<br />

their first line games. Victories over Hoover and San Diego High Schools, the Section<br />

Base, and the Naval Training Station featured the black side of the ledger. Two losses<br />

to Marine A.B.G.-2 and one to the Padres were the only deficits. Especially memorable<br />

were the two wins over Hoover and San Diego High when the Staters pounded a total<br />

of 22 hits while winning 14 to 3 and 13 to 5.<br />

Ex-coaches Bob and Dick hand over equipment to<br />

Manager George and newly-appointed Coach Hal.<br />

Marshall takes the throw at first to beat Hunzicker by<br />

two steps for the out; Woodhouse coaching at first.<br />

Harlow Bell is out sliding to second, Menke to Hayes.<br />

Babick looks on from right field.<br />

Luck couldn't last, and soon after the first of April, misfortune began hitting the Aztecs.<br />

First of all Coach Cook had to leave and take up his duties with the Padres. This<br />

blow wC.s deadened somewhat when Mitchell and Menke became student co-coaches.<br />

Along about this time, too; Estes signed wit:, the Padres and left quite a hole at the hot<br />

corner. The Staters continued their winnin ; ways at the expense of the Section Base<br />

and the Coast Guard. Another loss to the Staters completed the coaching careers of<br />

Menke and Mitchell.<br />

The eight best all-around performers in<br />

the major sports as selected by coaches<br />

and teams were:<br />

Track: Don Berg, Roy Richards. Football:<br />

Joe Seminario, Sherwood P.arker.<br />

Basketball: Jim Ahler, Jerry Patrick.<br />

Baseball: Bob Thomas, Hal Summers.<br />


Left to right, back row: Chuck English, Ray Malcolm, Ed Aveldson, Jim Craig, Phil Krutzsch, Bob Hom~sley,. Howard<br />

Berg, George Marinos, Bruce Clapp, Bob Webb, Harry GalpIn.<br />

H IN DE RED G R EAT LY by weather and the lack of suitable<br />

competition, State's track and field squad finished a rather dismal war-time season with<br />

a record of having competed in only two meets.<br />

Coach C. E. Peterson's men trained long and hard for meets which failed to materialize.<br />

However, in between showers the boys managed to hold the annual inter-class meet,<br />

which was won by the sophomores. The seniors put up a stiff battle, but the sophs<br />

came through with a 60-54112 point victory. The frosh picked up 29 points, while the<br />

juniors trailed with 18 1 17. Track captain Don Berg proved to be the outstanding performer<br />

of the meet as he shalked up 19112 points for the seniors.<br />

Several weeks more passed before the tea m had opportunity to show its wares again.<br />

This time State sponsored the first Annual Aztec Invitational Relays, and also proceeded<br />

to win their own meet. Thanks to the hard-working efforts of Coach C. E. Peterson,<br />

who managed the meet, the affair was a huge success, and drew well over 200 contestants.<br />

The Aztec men piled up 79 points to win in a breeze, as the nearest other<br />

team total was 33 points. Capt. Don Berg again led the thinclads to victory as he scored<br />

17'17 points. Berg amassed this total with victories in the 120 yd. hiqh hurdles and broad<br />

jump, a second in the 220 yd. low hurdles, a nd a tie for second in the pole vault. Bob<br />

Homesley's toss of 115 feet 6 inches in the discuss, and Skeeter Malcolm's 2:02.5 effort<br />

in the 880 accounted for other Aztec wins.<br />

Capt. Don Bug headed a four-man qroup<br />

of Keith Dixon, Skeeter Malcolm, .and Roy<br />

Rich,ards, who journeyed to Los Angeles<br />

to compete in an all-star meet. Here the<br />

boys ran into top notch competition from<br />

U.s.C., U.C.L.A., and various outstanding<br />

performers from some of the smaller<br />

southern California colleges. Berg took<br />

fourth in the 120 yd. high hurdles, which<br />

was won by Kryder of U.S.c. in a fourman<br />

blanket finish. Dixon tied for third in<br />

the hiqh jump, which wes won by Homeyer<br />

of U.s.C., while Malcolm took fifth<br />

in a 1.55 half, which was won by Packard<br />

of Pepperdine. Richards took fifth in the<br />

mile won by Perry of U.c.L.A. The meet<br />

aqain bore out the fad that competition<br />

evetv week was needed to put the Aztec<br />

performers in top shape.<br />

While the four-man group was in L.A.,<br />

many of the remaining members of the<br />

team competed unattached in the Consolidated<br />

Aircraft-Industrial Recreation<br />

Council Invitational meet held in the city<br />

stadium. Dick Collier and Jim Luce both<br />

showed well in the three mile run, and<br />

took second and third. Bruce Clapp took<br />

third in a classy 440 field, and Don Horner<br />

took second in the pole vault with a leap<br />

of 12 feet. Don Barnhart won the 880 in<br />

HAN DICAP P ED by a short schedule and lack of collegiate competition,<br />

the Aztec cross-country team nevertheless bad a highly successful season; and came<br />

up with a final record of three victories and no defeats. Starting with a nucleus of<br />

several track letterman and a few bright prospects up from the surrounding high schools,<br />

the squad soon developed into a potent outfit. Interest ran high in the gym classes and<br />

several members of the squad were "finds" from the commando classes.<br />

With frosh Frank Kinsella leading the way over the college's 1.8 mile course in 10 minutes<br />

43 seconds, the Stater's won their first meet from Hoover High school on December<br />

II. Senior Jim Luce battled Hoover's Bill Duns the last half-mile, and finally "outkicked"<br />

him in the final sprint to take second honors to Frank. By virtue of placing men<br />

first, second, fourth, eighth, and ninth; the harriers won the meet 26-29.<br />

On January 13 with the team at full strength, Kinsella led his mates to a second win<br />

over Hoover. He ran the new shortened course in 8:21.9 for a new record. Placing five<br />

out of the first six men really won the meet for State as the other five men on the team<br />

placed far back. Final meet score was I00- I 16.<br />

The "rabbit chasers" concluded their brief season on January 18 by scoring a landslide<br />

victory over San Diego and Hoover Hi'lh schools in a triangular meet. With his only<br />

comoetition corninq from team mate, Bill Boone; Kinsella burned up the course to set<br />

a record of 8:04.6. Final results gave State 22 points, Sa.n Diego High 41 points, and<br />

Hoover High 62 points.<br />

Coach C. E. Peterson recommended the following men for letters awards: Don Barnhart,<br />

Bill Boone, Dick Collier, Frank Kinsella, Ted Livingston, Jim Luce, Roy Richards, and Bill<br />

Schell.<br />

good time, and continued to show improvement in his first year of track competition.<br />

While training for the next meet of the season, Skeeter Malcolm cracked a college record<br />

in the 660 run during a time trial. He ran the distance in I :22 to break the old record<br />

of I :25.1 set by Jim Tripp in 1941. This performance stamped Malcolm as a definite<br />

threat to break the college 880 record. This record-breaking effort was a climax of continuous<br />

season-long improvement by Skeeter.<br />

Final meet of the year found the Aztecs once ag,ain going up against too-flight competition<br />

in the north. California, U.s.C., U.C.L.A., and many other colleges provided the<br />

stiff opposition. Malcolm took third in a special 660 race won by John Fulton of Stanford,<br />

who set a new American record of I: 18.9. The trio of Shepherd, Craig, and Merrill<br />

tied the U.C.L.A. men in the high jump .et 5 feet 10 inches, which was won with a height<br />

of 6 feet 4 inches. Jay Aveldson got off a toss of 171 feet in the javelin throw for his<br />

best effort of the year.<br />

Several men also competed in an open invitational meet held in the city stadium the<br />

next day. Don Horner tied for first in the pole vault with a leap of 12 feet 6 inches,<br />

which was a new season record for him.<br />

The team felt the lack of competition, and also the loss of Capt. Don Berg called in the<br />

V-7 class. Early season losses of Bill Boone, Ken Moyer, AI Jett, and Hardy Kuykendall<br />

to the armed forces also hurt the team.<br />

/<br />

Out for a jog are Don Barnhart, Bill Boone and Roy Richards.<br />

Don Horner shows some winning form in the pole vault. Lieutenant McGuire wins the cross country by lengths. Keith<br />

Dixon slithers over the bar with no room to spare.

form of wrestling, still persists on the Aztec Campus. Bob Dorland, former<br />

C.C.AA title holder, formed and coached this year's squad of grapplers.<br />

Only local competition rounded out this years schedule, all out of town<br />

meets being canceled because of transportation difficulties. Planned<br />

meets were with Army & Navy Y.M.C.A; San Diego High School; City<br />

Y.M.C.A; and local Military camps. The season's climax will be the<br />

county AAU. wrestling meet sometime in May.<br />

Below are some shots of a bone crushing session. At left are two grapplers:<br />

INTER-FRA T sport came successfully through the fall semester, but became<br />

a war casualty in the spring, when the navy called up the senior V-7 class. Interfrat<br />

council decided to cancel remaining schedule of sprinq sports, and therefore not to<br />

award the sports cup or placques.<br />

To win the volleyball crown Hods defeated Omega Xi two straight games in the tourney<br />

finals. Members of the winning team were Hal Summers, Don DeLauer, Dave McLees,<br />

Don Berg, Bob Sheppard, Joe Davis, Gordon Hunzicker, and Vernon Rivers. They continued<br />

their winning ways, as they annexed the bowling title. Team members were Hal<br />

Summers, Dave McLees, Jack Neitman, AI Estep, and Don Berg. Hods amassed team<br />

total of 2387 which was 107 points better their than nearest opponents Phi Lambda Xi<br />

and Omega Xi, who tied for second with 2280. Summers was high with a series of 525,<br />

while McLees was a close second with 522.<br />

Omega Xi's took over as inter-frat leaders by winning basketball with final record of 8<br />

wins and 0 losses. They defeated their nearest rival, Kappa Phi Sigma, in the deciding<br />

game to the tune of 23-12. Bob Menke of the winners was individual scoring leader with<br />

83 points, while Ronald Crawford of Tau <strong>Del</strong>ta Chi was a close second with 80.<br />

Kappa Phi Sigma made its appearance among the front runners, annexing the golf competition<br />

with a team average of slightly over 90. Dick Davis, Roy Grimse, Sherwood<br />

Parker, and Bob Pond made up the winning team. Dick Davis' round of 79 was low score<br />

for the tournament.<br />

During the badminton tourney the inter-frat council made its decision to cancel the remaining<br />

schedule, and so a final winner was not declared.<br />

At the time of cancellation Tau <strong>Del</strong>ta Chi, Hods, Kappa<br />

Phi Sigma, and Omega Xi remained in the running, with the<br />

Tau <strong>Del</strong>ts and Hods favored to clash in the finals.<br />

Surprise of track competition was the story-book finish<br />

between Kappa Phi Sigma and Epsilon Eta for the title.<br />

Kappa Phi Sigs finally won from the Eps by a 65-64 point<br />

margin. No records were broken, but stiff competition<br />

arose in many events.<br />

... WHERE<br />



With war coming to the United States of<br />

America, our colleges and universities lost<br />

no time in taking up the task of preparing<br />

youth of the nation for the job ,ahead! The<br />

program at San Diego State was soon nicknamed<br />

"pre-commando treining." but most<br />

men soon began referring to it simply as<br />

"Commando."<br />

The college exceeded military demands in<br />

requiring that every physically fit, lower division<br />

male student, or those enlisted in a<br />

military reserve, take at least four and a half<br />

hours of physical training each week.<br />

A problem of leadership for the program<br />

arose when four physical education staff<br />

members left for military service. But a group<br />

of students majoring in physical education<br />

provided the answer to this problem and<br />

soon Commando was under way.<br />

Classes met three periods each week, each<br />

period being an hour and a half long. Two<br />

days each week, classes generally called for<br />

a short warm-up run, calisthenics, ,and then<br />

running the obstacle course. The third day<br />

period was devoted to calisthenics and a<br />

three and a half mile cross-country run.<br />

The calisthenics were a series of twelve fundamntal<br />

drill and setting-up exercises most<br />

of which were devised by Commander Gene<br />

Tunney of the Navy. The obstacle course<br />

was 330 yards lon~ and included cross-bars<br />

for hand over hand, walls, hurdles and a<br />

water hazard.<br />

The hills and canyons around the campus<br />

were ideal for cross-country running. Dean<br />

C. E. Peterson laid out a course down and<br />

across Alvarado canyon, up the hill on the<br />

other side, and finally back across the dam<br />

at Little Murray lake and up the side of the<br />

canyon to the campus. The time for the run<br />

was usually between thirty and forty minutes.<br />

During the fall semester a special course in<br />

the art of self defense was worked out and<br />

suprvised by Harry Hall of the U.S.O. Industrial<br />

Unit in San Dieqo. He planned the<br />

course to give the fundamentals of the art<br />

of weaponless self defense, wrestling and<br />

boxing. Also taught was the use of body<br />

weight and leverage in the rougher forms of<br />

attack as well as in defense against them.<br />

Military dril,l was inaugurated during the<br />

Spring semester as a minor feature of Commando-minor<br />

because the Army and Navy<br />

prefer to have it carried on under strictly<br />

military discipline. Therefore, only enough<br />

drill was given, under former A.O.T.C. students,<br />

to develop an erect bearing and to<br />

prepare a man for the stiff drilling he gets<br />

when he Cloes into the service.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth<br />

Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth<br />

Of sun-split clouds-and done a hundred things<br />

You have not dreamed of-wheeled and soared and swung<br />

High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there<br />

I've chased the shouting wind along, .and flung<br />

My eager craft through footless halls of air.<br />

Up in the long, delirious, burning blue<br />

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace<br />

Where never lark, not even eagle flew-<br />

And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod<br />

The high untrespassed sanctity of space<br />

Put out my hand and touched the face of God.<br />

has been the concentration of energies for the furthing<br />

of war efforts, both civilian and military.<br />

Curtailing dances and other social activities in<br />

favor of war assemblies, drives and campaigns, Aztecs<br />

made patriotism a daily practice.<br />

Militia of the United States was increased considerably<br />

by State's contributions via the Army's Enlisted<br />

Reserve Corps and the Navy program, V-7.<br />

First ERC group called was March 17th when forty<br />

Aztecs boarded a rtain for camp and an army<br />

career. March 29 thirty-three more army reserves<br />

were given the call. Third step in the depletion of<br />

the male population at State was April 25 when<br />

thirty-two senior V-7's were called to active duty<br />

and placed for training at Northwestern.<br />

V-I and Marine reservists took the V-7 qualifying<br />

tests April 20. As a civilian unit San Diego State's<br />

first moves were to replace glass panes in all doors<br />

with cardboard and to install an air raid siren .<br />

First big student activity was the Scrap Drive in<br />

November. Won by Tau <strong>Del</strong>ta Chi, the drive was<br />

responsible for the huge piles of pots, pans, stoves<br />

and even old cars which littered the campus pathways<br />

for a week.<br />

GAME<br />

OF WAR<br />

In December Cetza substituted for their Th,anksgivinq Drive a Christmas Drive which was<br />

co-sponsored by Oceotl. Goal was the filling of 1500 gift boxes for servicemen in the<br />

hospitals. Culmination of the drive was the Christmas program in the men's gym.<br />

Christmas Dedication to Service was led by Jim Fairchild; "This Christmastide we dedicate<br />

ourselves anew to the service of democracy. May wever work in the ranks of freedom,<br />

~nd live in the spirit of brotherhood. May the words of America's great Emancipator<br />

echo In our hearts and take form in our deeds."<br />

Sororities and Fraternities put their shoulders to the wheel by pledging to buy a weekly<br />

quota of war stamps to be determined in relation to the membership of the group.<br />

At the Victory Ball substituted for the annual Homecoming Dance, Theta Chi held a<br />

drawing for a $25 bond. It was won by Lester Monson.<br />

Assemblies throughout the year featured representatives of the various services. These<br />

ranged from the clowninq of Sgt. Shelden Campbell to the presentation of Flying tiger<br />

Ed Overlin and of Major Ruth Streeter, head of the national Mari.ne women's reserve.<br />

Most spctacular event of the year was the Victory Drive April 22 engineered by Marjorie<br />

Midtlying. Competition was organized among the fraternities and sororities to see who<br />

could bring the most books, magazines, games and sports equipment to furnish service<br />

men's recreation rooms. A point system was devised and giant thermometers on the<br />

lawn showed the progress. Winners ofthe contest and the bonds offered as a prize were<br />

Phi Kappa Gamma, for the sororities, and Sigma Lambda, for the fraternities. Marines<br />

payed for their gifts of athletic equipment by putting on an hour and a half vaudeville<br />

show in the Little Theater May 13.<br />

WHO'S WHO, a national org,anization<br />

involvinq all colleges and universities<br />

in the United States, was formed with a dual purpose<br />

in mind. Partly as an honor to students<br />

deserving merit, the award is also given with .en<br />

eye toward setting up standards for underdassmen.<br />

The Who's Who committee, organized in 1934, is centralized on the campus of<br />

the University of AI,abama, which however has no say in its management.<br />

On our campus candidates are chosen by student body officers, the deans, and other<br />

student leaders. Each person makes fifteen recommendations and the twelve receiving<br />

the most votes earn +he awards. The quotas are determined in proportion to the student<br />

body.<br />

jim Ahler, or "Big jim" as the students<br />

call him, has spent a great deal<br />

of his four years at college in the<br />

men's physical education department<br />

where he has been taking an education<br />

course. After the war jim will<br />

try for a position as a high school<br />

coach. jim was a member of the<br />

varsity basketball team in 1940 when<br />

it traveled to Kansas city and won<br />

the national tournament. He was also<br />

chosen captain and most valuable<br />

player on the 1943 squad.<br />

His major activity this year, until he<br />

left in April with the rest of the<br />

senior men for Northwestern was as<br />

president of the associated men students.<br />

He is also a member of Blue<br />

Key and of Omega Xi fraternity.<br />

After-school hours this year found<br />

him serving as a student playground<br />

director under Civil Service.<br />

In addition to the honor, winners are privileged to send for a key, locket or shingle and<br />

the Who's Who Book published yearly. The committee also attempts to find jobs In<br />

their specialized fields for Who's Who members.<br />

"Smilin' Throuqh" might be jim Fairchild's<br />

theme song, for his term of<br />

ASB president in a war year has been<br />

a trying one. That smile stuck<br />

through a year of adjustment to a<br />

situation which provided fewer and<br />

fewer students and faculty members<br />

for ASB adivities as Uncle Sam<br />

stepped in. jim has been a member<br />

of the V-7 division of the U. S. Navy<br />

and will be leaving himself soon.<br />

Every student-faculty committee on<br />

campus has counted him as a member<br />

at one time or another, and in his<br />

junior year he was picked for membership<br />

in the honorary service organization<br />

for upper division men, Blue<br />

Christine Dickman let current events<br />

outline her policy for the year and<br />

as president of the associated women<br />

students she organized coeds to<br />

help with various civic organizations<br />

such as the usa and YWCA. Under<br />

her direction Aztec coeds visited<br />

local camps and the Army-Navy<br />

YMCA many times to dance with<br />

soldiers, sailors and marines.<br />

As a freshman Christine pledged to<br />

Epsilon Pi Theta sorority and became<br />

a member of Cetza. As a junior she<br />

was honored by Cetza members in<br />

beinq elected president of that service<br />

group. Senior year found her<br />

"teppd" for Cap and Gown and an<br />

active member of the extra-curricular<br />

committee, a student-faculty group.<br />


Elizabeth Galligan is known to all<br />

Staters es "Ish"; in fad many don't<br />

know she has another name. She<br />

might easily be voted the best known<br />

and most efficiently active woman<br />

at the college. Ish brought fame to<br />

St.ate college last year when as president<br />

of the Associated Women Students<br />

she traveled to a Salt Lake city<br />

convention of A WS prexies and was<br />

elected by them president of the entire<br />

western division of A WS's.<br />

This year as e senior Ish received the<br />

high honor of being elected chancellor<br />

of Cap and Gown. She is a member<br />

of Theta Chi sorority in which<br />

she has held numerous offices. Freshmen<br />

each veer meet her as one of<br />

their student counselors. A former<br />

member of Cetza, she will graduate<br />

with two credentials, one in business<br />

and one in education. She is most<br />

easily recognized by her individual<br />

hair-do, a singularly short and casual<br />

bob.<br />


Jack Jackson found senior year a<br />

busy one when he was elected president<br />

of Blue Key. Such activities as<br />

sponsoring the weekly "Hat's Off"<br />

lending a helping hand to ,any<br />

campus activity in need of assistance,<br />

and traditional Blue Key aHairs<br />

needed his executive ability for organization.<br />

The position for which Jack is perhaps<br />

best known was as leader of the<br />

college band. Jack injected swine<br />

and pep into the band as never seen<br />

before on the local campus. Fresno<br />

football fans went wild over the<br />

music at one of our out-of-town<br />

games and had the State college<br />

band play to the exclusion of theirs.<br />

Jack has been a prominent member<br />

of the rally committee, the Social<br />

committee and of <strong>Del</strong>ta Pi Beta<br />

fraternity.<br />

BOB<br />

AUSTIN<br />

Bob Austin's name will go down in<br />

Aztec history as the composer of the<br />

college Alma Mater. Last year the<br />

student body came to the horrible<br />

realization that their existing Alma<br />

Ma·ter did not have an original tune.<br />

A contest was held and Bob won it<br />

with his song, "Hail, Montezuma."<br />

Music is definitely Bob's field, though<br />

it might be more proper to say "was"<br />

since for the duration he's in active<br />

service in the navy. Bob is another<br />

that will soon complete a preparatory<br />

course at Northwestern leading to a<br />

commission as an ensign. As a sophomore<br />

Bob composed, directed and<br />

produced .e musical, "Chaparral."<br />

Last year he served as soloist with<br />

Treble Clef, and throuqhout he has<br />

been active as a, member of Epsilon<br />

Eta fraternity and Blue Key. As a<br />

freshman he sang second lead in the<br />

campus production of "The Desert<br />

SonR·"<br />

Mary Ellen Bowlby directed most of<br />

her extra-curricular effort into fields<br />

of journalism, becoming well identified<br />

with that phase of school activities.<br />

As a senior she found herself<br />

with extra duties when the senior<br />

class president Bill Simonsen left for<br />

the army and as vice president of the<br />

class it was her move to step into the<br />

presidency. When 50 senior men<br />

dropped out in March and April for<br />

adive service Mary Ellen and her<br />

cabinet found it necessary to revise<br />

rather completely the graduation program<br />

of events.<br />

Last year Mary Ellen served as coeditor<br />

of <strong>Del</strong> Sudoeste and was a<br />

member of Cetza and Pi Phi Epsilon,<br />

economics sorority. This year her<br />

activities have been as a member of<br />

Cap and Gown, for which she served<br />

as chairman of the spring fashion tea,<br />

as a member of the public relations<br />

board of the college and as president<br />

of her sorority Theta Chi. As a junior<br />

she was director of publicity for the<br />

college.<br />

Marion Goodwin swings a mean<br />

tennis racket as fans will remember<br />

who saw her win the Ink tournament<br />

some years a~o. Marian's activities<br />

at State centered around women's<br />

sports and won her the presidency of<br />

the Women's Recreatio.nal Association<br />

in her senior veer,<br />

Marion is also a member of Cap and<br />

Gown and of Epsilon Pi Theta sorority.<br />

High school girls will soon be<br />

having her as a gym teacher.<br />

While tops in tennis, red haired<br />

Mario.n also shines in badminton,<br />

archery, dancing, swimming .and all<br />

of the team games. Her easy wins in<br />

each of the three inter-sorority swimming<br />

events she entered are an indication<br />

of her consistent athletic<br />

prowess, as is the mantle-full of cups<br />

and trophies in her name.<br />

Fred Jennings won himself a wide<br />

circle of friends among the high<br />

school students of the city and<br />

county when he acted as chairman<br />

of the Student Congress, held on the<br />

college campus in March under the<br />

co-sponsorship of Blue Key and Cap<br />

and Gown. His executive ability is<br />

unquestioned with 12 seminars, a<br />

luncheon, dance and campus tour to<br />

his credit.<br />

By now Fred is nearing the completion<br />

of his three month training<br />

course at Northwestern, preparatory<br />

to wearing the gold stripe that will<br />

mark him a'S an ensign in the U. S.<br />

Navy. He was awarded his diploma<br />

in May when he left. Fred's campus<br />

activities included membership in<br />

Blue Key, Tau <strong>Del</strong>ta· Chi and Oceotl.<br />

He was president of his junior class,<br />

member of the student council for<br />

two years and counselor for the freshman<br />

class last year.<br />

FRED<br />


BillSimonsen made his senior year the<br />

true high point of his college career<br />

by becoming engaged to Freshman<br />

Yvonne Weary. He too found his<br />

final semester cut short when his<br />

orders came to report in the E.R.C.<br />

It was Bill's voice that became<br />

familiar to college students as the<br />

new announcer over the campus<br />

public address s y s t e m between<br />

classes, and also as an announcer on<br />

a local radio station.<br />

These activities indicate his main<br />

extra-curricular interest, public speaking<br />

and debate. With these abilities<br />

he made an efficient president of the<br />

senior class 'for the semester and .e<br />

half he was able to have. As a member<br />

of the varsity debate squad he<br />

wes also a member of the Gavel<br />

society, and in his lower division<br />

years he gained experience in speaking<br />

through membership in Tcastmasters.<br />

As a junior he was engaged<br />

by the senior class to direct their<br />

pl.Jy, "Bertha, The Beautiful Typewriter<br />

Girl."<br />

168<br />


Betty Juel, besides being as efficient<br />

an ASB vice president as ever walked<br />

through an election, adds a bit of<br />

glamour to the student council. Some<br />

of her pet projects this year have<br />

been-organization of social activities<br />

to require not more than one trip<br />

from home in a day, and promotion<br />

of war effort on the campus.<br />

Betty got an early start on her extracurricular<br />

activities when she was<br />

elected Homecoming queen in her<br />

freshman year by the social fraternities<br />

of the campus. She is now a<br />

member of Cap and Gown, honorary<br />

service organization for senior<br />

women and a former member of<br />

Cetza, service org for sophomores<br />

and junior women. Somewhere in the<br />

four years she found time to be a<br />

student counselor and vice president<br />

of her sophomore class. As a freshman<br />

she pledged to Phi Kappa<br />

Gamma sorority.<br />




Jim Hurley, an economics a,nd business<br />

major, carried his academic interest<br />

into extra-curricular activities<br />

so that students now associate<br />

money matters with him like jive with<br />

a juke box. Jim's business ability was<br />

evident in 1939 when as a freshman<br />

he organized the first used book exchange<br />

at State college.<br />

The climax was last year when he was<br />

elected commissioner of finance, or<br />

treasurer of the ASB. It was the kind<br />

of work that doesn't get much publicity<br />

but those on the "inside" know<br />

that ,a lot of efficient handling is<br />

necessary to direct the student body<br />

funds into the correct channels. Jim<br />

preceded that by membership on the<br />

school finance board for two years.<br />

He was also one of the board of directors<br />

of the student bank. Blue Key<br />

and Kappa Phi Sigma fraternity<br />

counted him as members. He served<br />

as president of the latter in his junior<br />

year.<br />

Phyllis Sanders attended San Diego<br />

State college only e year and a half'<br />

but in that short time became one of<br />

the ororninent students on campus.<br />

In the second half of her junior year<br />

she matriculated here from the University<br />

of Oregon. On the northern<br />

campus she was prominent in many<br />

activities, affiliating with Phi Theta,<br />

a group similar to State's Cetza, and<br />

pledging Keppe Alpha Theta sorority.<br />

At State college she became a member<br />

of the senior cabinet, was elected<br />

to membership in the ASB council<br />

and was appointed member of the<br />

WRA board. As en outstanding student<br />

teacher in the training school<br />

she was asked to join Kappa <strong>Del</strong>ta<br />

Pi, honorary Freternitv for education<br />

students. She also pled qed to Theta<br />

Chi sorority and became its vice<br />

president.<br />
