A snapshot view of Lassen High School in 1941

Lassen Honors Drafted Men
March 15th, 1941

A banquet was held at Hotel Mt. Lassen Friday evening at 6:30 o’clock honoring the fourth call of draftees.

Attorney George D Pancera was general chairman. Judge Ben V. Curler was principal speaker for the evening. Attorney J. A. Pardee, member of the district appeal board of the selective training organization and Milo Massoty, commander of the American Legion, also spoke.

Dr. G. S. Martin was master of ceremonies.

The draftees left Sunday for Sacramento where they will report.

Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, Susanville 20-30 Club and Lassen County Defense club all joined as hosts.

Father and son night was celebrated at the high school gymnasium Friday night, with sports events to entertain the dads.

Wrestling, boxing, tumbling and other entertainment, under the direction of Coach Ralph Hillsman, made up the annual sports show of Lassen high school.

Why We Need Reader Support


Our independent, local coverage takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. It is also not particularly lucrative. Our primary revenue source, banner advertising on SusanvilleStuff, is simply not enough by itself, and we increasingly need to rely on reader support to pay the bills.


Every dollar our readers contribute goes towards making SusanvilleStuff a stronger voice in the community with better, more comprehensive content. We are committed to never putting up a paywall for our readers, and content on SusanvilleStuff will always be free. These contributions are completely voluntary, and very appreciated.
