Download complete file with overview and stats: 1923


From the Trident dated September 13, 1922:
At last Santa Cruz High is to have a gym – the building for which she has hoped and worked so long and so enthusiastically. Carpenters are now working on the building, which is on the site of the old track barn. The work will probably be completed in a month or two.

One of the most appealing features of the gym is a large indoor basketball court with a seating capacity of over seven hundred. Goodbye to the old Casino court!

Many new showers are to be put in for the boys, and there will be twice as much locker and dressing room. The girls will have several showers and individual dressing rooms.
The class of 1923 decided to have a pictorial review in place of a traditional yearbook. The money they saved went towards a Memorial Gate at the entrance of Memorial Park.

Much was done toward discouraging the old ideas of class antagonism, which is a big step in the right direction. No more hazing. [racial hazing?]
