TextSC Junior College Is Given Cabrillo NameA new Junior college took an early morning step toward academic realization today with the first official meeting of its board of trustees in the county schools office.They gathered at 8 o'clock to select board officers, terms of office and select a name. These were the developments:1. Cabrillo college was unanimously chosen as the name. It is taken from an early Portuguese ship pilot, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who roamed the west coast in 1542 with a Spanish expedition.2. Board officers elected were: Keith Shaffer, chairman; Joseph Chamberlain, vice chairman; and Mrs. Marguerite Blaisdell, clerk. They will serve for one year and four months.3. They drew colored soda straws for their terms of office. They are: One year, Harold A. Hyde; two years, Carl Conelly and Albert W. Rice; three years, Arthur L. Hubbard and Shaffer and four years, Chamberlain and Blaisdell. This was done to stagger the elections so that an all new board won't be elected at once. Norman Lien, superintendent of county schools, said that when these terms run out the replacements will all have four- year terms.4. A guide for the selection of a president-superintendent for the college was established. He must be between 30 and 60 years old, have at least a masters degree, California experience and building experience. Salary was placed between $l3, 50O and $15, 000 or more. Applicants will be screened by a university committee headed by Dr. James D. MacConnell, profession of education, director of school planning, University of California. Those recommended will be forwarded to the junior college board for selection. The board felt a selection should be made during April. 5. No decision was made as to whether or not classes would start this September. Lien said, however, that if they did, it would not affect county students now attending junior colleges in other areas.Dr. Hugh G. Price, chief, bureau of junior college education, was present as an advisor this morning. He said 100 acres was the minimum amount of land required for a junior college.He mentioned that classes could start using temporary facilities, and used as an example one college which used a high school for three years, holding classes from 4 to 10 p.m. The board can institute a 35 cents operation tax. Dr. Price mentioned that legislation was being proposed for the state to furnish money to help a junior college make its initial start. The board voted to encourage this proposed legislation.
