Page 14- Wednesday, February 13, 1980 Letter from former Con.holly student &apos; O-<'e- e Continued from page 8 might not sound so special today, but in 1948 or 1949, few of us in Cloverdale High School saw ourselves ex- ploring the campus of the University of California at Berkeley, let alone par- ticipating in the half-time activities at one of Cal's football games. We didn't even have a football team in Cloverdale at that time. However, this guy was determined to give us all of the world we could handle and that he did. He not only took us to participate in Cal's Band Day in Berkeley every year, but he took us to music Prices effective Wed., Feb. 13 tlru Tues., Feb. 19, 1980 Shop 'N Save Markets All Stores Open Mon., Feb. 18 lOa.m.--7p.m. 'l 'l I festivals at San Jose State College, his alma mater (we I .00betrY must have been pretty good by then ) and to Cal, Davis for  picnic day.
