Meetings: February 25, 1911. [he first regular meeting of the Low Senior class was held on February 25, 1911, for the purpose of electing officers and adopting a constitution which had previously been drawn up by Elwyn Remmel. Each article of the constitution was read and accepted and the whole document was unanimously approved. A play committee of four was appointed to select and procure a play. It was decided not to hold any meeting until the arrival of the play, as there was no other important business to be attended to. Miss Garretson was unanimously proclaimed an honorary member of the Low Senior class. March I, I9I1. March I, committee and of choosing a manager for the play. The second meeting of the class was held on 1911, for the purpose of hearing the report of the play Mr. Anthony, chairman af the play committee, reported that the play, ““A Strenuous Life,’ was the one which the committee had chosen as most suitable for production. This play was unanimously accepted by the class. Mr. Anthony was elected manager and was empowered to choose the coach. It was decided that the play should be presented on the evening of Saturday, April 29, 1911. A committee, consisting of Miss Shearer, Miss Westbrook, and Mr. Anthony, was appointed by Mr. Murphy, the president, to estimate the budget and to decide the amount which each member of the class was to be assessed. March 8, 1911.—A meeting was held on March 8, 1911, for the purpose of hearing the report of the finance committee. It was proposed by Mr. Anthony, president of the committee, and unani- mously accepted by the class, that a theater party should be given to the High Senior class some time in the latter part of the term. The dues were fixed at $2.00. Mr. Anthony, manager of the play, stated that he had secured » the services of Miss Coffin as coach. Mr. Turk and Mr. Remmel were appointed as assistant managers of the play by Mr. Anthony. They were to have charge of the program and advertising part of the business. March 16, 1911.—-On Thursday, March 16, 1911, a short meeting was held to discuss the outcome of the tryouts for the Senior play which took place on Wednesday, March 15, 1911. After a short discussion it was decided to elect a new manager, as the former manager, Mr. Anthony, had resigned his position. Mr. Von Schmidt was unanimously chosen for this office. The Low Senior class have devoted their entire efforts this term to the presentation of the play. “A Strenuous Life,’’ which they have endeavored in every way to make a success both financially and other- wise. If they gain any mention from the school it will be entirely on the merits of their play, and rightfully so, for such an undertaking is sufficient to wholly engage the talents and time of any one class. The baseball team of the Low Senior class has not very many [his is owing chiefly to the fact that games to its credit this term. the bulk of the members of the class who are capable of playing, are on the school team and are therefore excluded from playing in the inter- class games. This has worked a hardship on the class team, as there has been practi ally no good material to pick from. The Low Senior class desire to express their thanks and apprecia- tion to Miss Coffin, who has so ably coached their play “A Strenuous Life,” and to whom a great deal of credit is due. The Senior Play ‘ A Strenuous Life,” presented by the Class of December, ‘11, while not a classical play, was a dec ided success. The cast, chosen by Miss Coffin, the coach, was an admirable one. They each and every one entered into the spirit of the thing, and the audience forgot that they were watching Harold Von Schmidt, Edgar Kelly, Ruth Huff. Charles Tilden, Valerie Ansel or the other High School boys and girls of the cast, but were vitally interested in the escapades of that jolly “‘professional liar,’’ Tom Harrington; the troubles of the old miner, Dan, in his search for “‘tobaccy’’; the alternating joy and grief Scene from “A Strenuous Life” Presented by the Class of December, 1911 t PA: 4 ae ay witty wh a wi%y uty wy wily wilh wy wie wihy why with Ady witty wry - % in aha mss ..

This greenness, peculiar to Low Freshmen, is exceedingly uncomfortable for those who bear it; so uncomfortable, in fact, that many leave school, so that they may bury their ignorance among others who are in a like state. These reasons moved some of our class members to leave, but we are proud to say that most of them bravely endured their hardships, so that the gaudy hue gradually wore off. The High Sophomore class has always been prompt in responding to any call. When the president asked each class to organize, our organization was already in order. A class baseball team was also formed, and it seems t hat most of the members of the girls’ basketball team of the school register in the High Sophomore class. Low Sophomore Class High Freshman Class Early this term the High Freshman class met and organized. The following officers were elected: President, Ed Joseph; Vice President, Dorothy Soule; Secretary, Hall Funcke; Class Editor, Kendrick Vaughan; Baseball Captain, Frank Pollard. A meeting of the High | reshman class was called to order by President Joseph on February 2nd. Frank Pollard made a motion that there would be no class dues, but when any money was needed the president could make an assess- ment. [he motion was seconded and carried. [The High Freshman baseball team has not made much of a success. A few games were played, but owing to a lack of players the team disbanded. An unsuccessful attempt was also made to organize a girls’ basket- ball team. If the High Freshman class is not there in athletics, they are certainly there in buying ACORN tickets. Up to date this class has bought more of these tickets than any class in the school. eh! Pretty good, Low Freshman Class When a Freshman reaches High School he comes with his Gram- mar School diploma in his hand. He feels now that he has finished Grammar School most ol his worries are over. He immediately goes to the principal. The principal says, ““My boy, what do you want?’ Upon further examination he finds out what the trouble is and sends him to a Low Freshman class teacher. The teacher has a table on the board which shows what subjects he could take and what period he could take them. [he teacher then tells the Freshman to make out his program. The Freshman looks around in a rather dazed fashion at all the other scholars. Gen- erally there are a few “‘left-overs,”’ so he soon finds help. During all of this he gets an impression of his teachers, classmates and upper- classmen which stay with him tll the end. Recess then has its turn. The Freshman generally carries his books out into the yard and also goes to the hat-room to get his hat, but to his dismay he finds the room locked, and he has to go out bare- headed. He comes back at noon, the bell rings and he is at sea as much as he was at the start. He follows someone he knows, and if he isn't going to the correct room he follows another till at last he gets there. When he arrives at his end of the journey he looks bewildered and worried, as if he is in the wrong room. He “trots” up to his teacher’s desk and he is informed that there is a list of books for him to get by tomorrow, and that if he don’t have them within two days he must report to Dr. Thompson (principal). The first week runs along rapidly and Friday afternoon comes. There is a rumor that there is t o be a student meeting, and the Fresh- man can’t make out what it means, but at 2:30 he follows the crowd and lands in the Assembly Hall. Qearqe Masho © ( dune tt— | ee | He sits patiently throughout the session and goes out more worried than ever as to what returns he is going to get for the sixty cents dues, but he stops worrying when he is informed that fifty cents more is added for the ACORN, and also there is a small nominal sum of about twenty-five cents for class dues. However, it doesn’t take long for him to ‘‘get wise,’’ as the Senior says, and it then goes along smoothly till the first quarter begins, when he is told about his ““Exs.’’ From that on he looks worried and nervous till they are over, and then it depends on the marks how his actions are. Athletics. They were tie for the interclass cup till the “‘last’’ game. Ihe Freshmen are always very promising in athletics. Most of the girls belong to a dumb-bell class operated by one of our faculty. Before this issue is in the readers’ hands I hope the Freshmen will have overcome their failure in the attempt to have a program in the A. H. S. Students’ Association. There is much talent in our class for such a thing to happen.

Mechanical Drawings from How To Make Pen Drawings For Reproduction In cleaning out the pencil lines underneath the ink use nothing but the softest kind of an eraser, the sponge eraser being the best. Ink lines that are rubbed too strongly with a hard eraser will appear gray instead of black, and will, of course, not reproduce satisfactorily. Most students draw on too small a scale. Drawings should always be considerably larger than they are to appear in the finished “‘cut.”” Amateurs do not realize this. In newspaper illustrations one makes drawings not less than one-third larger than the “‘cut,’” but never smaller. Drawings made on too large a sc ale suffer when reduced too muc h Drawings reproduc ed unless the lines are unusually bold and strong. Tat Be WAC MAST Jon exactly the same size as the copy appear coarse and crude [he reason why a drawing should be larger than the finished cut because an artist finds it more convenient to work on a large scale, and the lines will improve in fineness in the reduction Any students who do not yet comprehend how to make a draw ing to sc ale according to the method described above may obtain a more detailed description, with a diagram, by calling on the instructor of the Drawing Department.

GEORGE C. THOMPSON THIS EDITION OF THE ACORN IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED NY i, Pee Y RODUCTION Before passing judgment on this book, the editors request that you consider each point which will lead you to form your opinion. A high school semi-annual is a valuable thing in many respects, not for the class of work contained in its make-up, but for what it represents, namely, the friends made in younger days; the teachers who will be respected more and more as we mature, and last but not least, the good times which form a part of our prep school life. In publishing the Acorn we have, to the best of our ability, emphasized the pleasant events of the last few months, and we hope that this book will call to mind the things you will want recalled. Each year the editors try rather to improve on the pre ceding Acorns than to make them radically different. This term we have tried to keep up the standard of former years and yet make the edition up-to-date and original as possible. We have done our best to justify the trust which the executive body has placed in us. We hope, that in presenting this bo Kk to you, that it will meet with your approval, as it represents a ereat deal of labor on the part of the entire staff. THE Epirors.

The play was presented at Adelphian Hall, under the competent coaching of Mr. Carlyle, who is not unknown to Alameda High, and who has coached several other successful plays. The production was made a great success by the co operation which was given to the class. The efforts of the class as a unit seemed to be recognized by those who could help, and they accordingly seemed very willing. volume of praise might be written about the way) Eugenia Vaughan, Helen Funke, Carol Tripp, Anita Ross, Mildred Levy, Clement Smith, lfred Powell and Leroy Krusi played their parts. Each and everyone played his or her part to perfection, from the dramatic to the sentimental. Eugenia Vaughan, playing the title role, held the audi ence by the versatile interpretation of her part. Miss Vaughan showed exceptional talent in the difficult part which she took. Helen Funke seemed more natural on the stage than we see her at school. She surely did portray the aver- ‘an girl just as she 1s the ease with which she carried her actions.

The purpose of the meeting was for the election of new President, officers. The following officers were chosen: Dean Perkins; Vice-President, Marion Murphy; Secretary, Marie Dunbar; Class Editor, Donald Pearson. In the interclass swimming meet, held at Surf Beach early in the term, the High Freshman team held second place by taking sixteen points. The reason that so many pupils fail in their second term al High School is because they do. not realize the changed conditions of that term. The Freshman often wonders why the second term is so much harder than the first. When he enters High School he is questioning whether he is to have a snap, or if he has to work from the beginning. At the end of the first term he finds that in most cases the teachers have given him the bene- fit of a doubt, and that school is not so bad after all. So he decides to keep on. His second term he finds very different. Everything is less strange, for he has become fairly well acquainted with the place. He finds that he has not nearly so much of a snap as he had the term before. He finds that teachers are more strict in their markings, and that there is less leniency shown him. He also commences to realize from this time, if he has not before, what work really is. Freshman’s first impressions of the Alameda High School are rather vague, owing to the new surroundings. When a Freshman has arrived he is usually given a warm re- ception. When the bell rings he hears something “study hall,” so, following the crowd he arrives in sits down and listens to a talk by Dr. Thompson. is over he leaves the study hall and hunts for his future room, This takes some time, but it is eventually he is instructed in the subtle art of making a program. this is done, a bell rings and he starts out to visit his different rooms. This usually takes the rest of the morning, on account of being sent to the Chemistry laboratory for English, and Senior English for Latin. He also visits the other parts of the building in an attempt to find his History room. many trials and tribulations, he returns to his classroon a list of books about a mile long (apparently), and a list of dire punishments if the books are “not obtained before Wednesday.” He is then told to return in the afternoon, and he goes homeward in great glee. afternoon the pro gram is gone over again and he is dismissed for the day, not knowing whether he liked it or not. The Freshmen, being ignorant, make laughable mistakes. The commonest delusion seems to be that Dr. Thompson is a sort of information bureau. Most of the others are quit natural and can readily be excused when the extreme you of the class is taken into consideration. On September first, the Infant ss held its first official meeting in order to elect officers. Weston olberg was elected President; Dorothy Davis, Vice-President, and Emil Di Vee chio, Secretary and Treasurer. ‘The meeting was then ad journed.

L. baseball and football cups, as well as the second place Stanford interscholastic cup. ‘Track men are scarce in lameda, and the school appreciates what such men as Macauley, Chorpe, Cummins and Christianson have done for it. Baseball, the national game. Well, Alameda has turned out some ball teams worthy of any high school In 1909, Alameda’s star year, they succeeded in annexing the A. A . L. cup from Cogswell School under Coach Russell and Frank Gay. “Oscar’’ Mackie pitched a steady game all through the season and Ala meda lost few games. In 1907 Alameda’s first burst of speed came, when the base- ball team started the ball a-rolling by taking the A. A. L. cup from Wilmerding after a brilliant record for the season. To them is due all consideration, for they are the boys who started Alameda’s winning streak, and they did it by the coaching of a fellow who is well known to all Alameda fans, “Red” Baker, with Lloyd Burton as captain. The 1911 baseball team ended Alameda’s run of athletics so far as championships are concerned. Though the boys were defeated by Berkeley High, the stumbling block was entirely overcome by the team, for this was the only game they lost, and since Berkeley refused a return game, when Beach was in his prime, the team think they are entitled to no little attention. The school recognized this by awarding them their block letters. This team was ably coached by “Terry” McKune, a Coast Leaguer, and captained by Ed Seagrave. Four Star A.—these words are by no means unknown to Alameda High School. There are seven fellows who have served this school for four successful years in athletics, and de- served mention is given here of these fellows who have attained every honor in preparatory athletics. The first man to get this honor was Byron Paul, and after him came Macauley, Kiser, FE. Bruzzone, Anthony, Murphy and Ed Seagrave. In conclusion, it might be well to say that we hope this reputation which has been gained by the school will be kept for a long time and that future generations will not be forced to say, “Those were the days when Alameda High was in its prime.” Front Rankers Forwards ARPS TEI Berkeley 18, Alameda 0. aspirants 11 Ruel Half Back ON SCHMID First Five-Eighths BRUZZONE Second Five-Eighths HOW] Center Three-Quarters Ca¥ mii I Wing Three-Quarters BEACH, HARD] Full LARKI) SUBSTITUTES Backs them in games to come. ‘The scrum showed a big improve ment over the Berkeley game.

Alameda 8, Oakland Poly. 0. lameda proved too fast for the Oakland Polytechnic team. The game was played on the slow Recreation Grounds. The feature of the game was the playing of the forwards. They showed a vast improvement over the past games. Larkin kicked off, and after some fierce fighting Beach crossed the line for the first try. Bruzzone converted. A few minutes later Captain Howe crossed the line for another try. The second half was a battle between the forwards. Again and again, Poly was only a few feet from our goal line. Again and again g g our forwards fought themselves out of danger. Alameda 8, Palo Alto 3. That Alameda was to be heard from, was certainly proved on October 7th when they went to Palo Alto to play Palo lto High on Stanford field. Last year’s academic champions and this year’s victors over the Stanford Freshmen, were our victims. ‘The victory was a surprise to the followers of Rugby and proved Alameda was far from being out of the race, The game was marked by fierce fighting and long runs. Larkin kicked off for Alameda and followed the ball up with a rush. Palo Alto heeled the ball out on their five-yard line, but a minute later Alameda sent Beach over for a try. Captain Howe failed to convert. Then Palo Alto brought the bleacherites to their feet. Davison broke loose and ran O’Laine did not convert. ‘The Warned by Coach Fletcher to expect a strong come-back in the second half, Alameda went seventy-five yards for a try. irst half found the score 3 to 3. in again with lots of ginger. “Ming’’ Bruzzone was the shining ight in this half.

Our entire team played great yall and much credit is due Coach Fletcher. Alameda 3, Berkeley 14. fter a strenuous battle against the Berkeley High fifteen, the Alameda High Rugby team suffered its first important de feat. The game was a hard-fought one from beginning to end. With the score eleven to nothing against them, Alameda entered the second half with plenty of fight.

He is a born Rugby player, and those of you who saw the Olympics play the Varsity, know that he is a clever player. lis first knowledge of athletics was obtained while attendance at Reno High. He attended the University Nevada for three years and has played a star game at full, being selected for Captain of the Nevada Varsity in his last ear. “Fletch,” as he is called by the boys, during his stay in lameda has gained the utmost respect of faculty and stu- dents.

YELL LEADER ADAMS. Harry Adams, who has led the Alameda rooting sections for two terms, has been one of the best men for the position Alameda has ever had. Adams has worked hard for the school and deserves credit for the way he has led the yells, for Alameda spirit has not always been manifested in its yelling.

The team journeyed over to Berkeley to play the California “var- sity’ four different times, and although not successful in defeat- ing them, the trips afforded some good practice. Football kept most of the players out of the game this fall, but on several occasions the veterans were seen to advantage in their respective positions. Murphy at shortstop played in his usual form and the loss of ‘“Sweater’s’”’ smiling countenance next year will be greatly felt. Hollywood, a freshman, has been play- ing a steady game and should be a shining light in the infield for several years. With “Cannon” Beach again on the mound, “Shy” Seagrave, “Young” Gay, Maguire, ‘“Seventy-Six” Johns, Pollard and “Wil- lyum” Brewer, of last year’s team, 1912 should have a fine oppor- tunity of winning the pennant. Alameda, however, does not have to worry about material, as the grammar school teams each yield some good players. Such players as Croll, Hollywood entering school, the loss of Sherrard, Murphy and Ed. Seagrave will not materially be felt. Now that credit is being allowed for those participating in athletics, it is hoped that more of the fellows will turn out for baseball next spring. The under-class men should realize that in any game in life the best man wins out in the end and that success comes only to those who seek and desire it. Ep. T. SEAGRAVE, 1911.

My, but that was some speed, and then to have five whole minutes to spare, for classes don’t begin till seven minutes after. the hour! | sauntered up the incline by North, pulled out my A. S$. U. C. Card, and after a few strenuous moments managed to get near enough to the window to show my card to get a C But there stood Ernest Brown ’14 (enrolled in the College of Commerce, proudly displaying a Sigma Chi button) calmly giving out Daily Californians as fast as his hands could fly. Once in full possession of my Cal., I stepped aside to let Ruey Dexter °10, entering upon her second year of graduate work, get her Cal. It was just loads of fun getting out of that tan- gled mob, bowing here, there with a “hello” for each—even though one suffered the dislocation of a few ribs, to say nothing of hats and books. Here I espied Charles Dodge ‘14 (Phi Delta Theta) registered in the college of Mechanics, as are also Francis Maslin ’12, Metcalf Simonson °12, Browning Dexter ’12 and Spencer Mastick ‘13 (Phi Delta Theta). Just then I saw Bob Christy “bob” up, of the class of 1915 (Phi Delta Theta) also in the College of Mechanics. I hurried my steps a bit for I now had only two minutes to get to the third floor of North Hall. On the way I perused my Cal. The name of Leslie Bates 13 (College of Commerce) caught my eye, amongst a list of those who had been elected to member- ship in the Commerce Club. And there was an article where Will Gay, Delta Tau Delta, (College of Mechanics), was one of the thirteen Junior Neophytes of the Skull and Keys honor society, having been able to undergo the strain of carrying girls’ books, while gayly clad in white trousers pulled up to the knees, displaying rather striking stockings, besides his plug and swallow-tail coat. Onother article caught my eye- that on the Treble Clef opera, “When Johnny Comes March- ing Home,” in which Margaret Kenny °13 (Natural Science) is given the role of Amelia Thropp, while Phyllis Maguire 13 (Alpha Omicron Pi—Social Science), a former A. H. 5. student was given the role of Kate Pemberton. My! but I was almost excluded from my class—for I slipped in just as the door closed. The clock struck nine—it was a relief. En masse we stormed the door, soon mingling with the crowds upon the stairs. In passing I glanced at the rack to see if there were any notes for me—but alas! there were none, but I happened to see one for Ethel Murray, vice-president of the Sophomore Class. dent,” the monthly literary magazine gotten out by the stu [ went down North Hall steps, purchased an “Occi- dents, and just caught sight of Warren Thompson ‘14 (reg- istered in the College of Commerce), Harold Knowles °12 (S. S.), Alpha Tau Omega, and Georgia Meredith ‘13 (S. 5.), Alpha Omicron Pi. Breathless I arrived at the fatal “seven minutes after,” but there was no professor, so I calmly perused my “Occident.” Amongst the staff officers I found Mary de Watt 13 (S.-s:); I glanced up I noticed that the class was preparing to leave lpha Omicron Pi, as assistant editor. As and had to chuckle as the “prof” arrived on the last second of fifteen minutes past the hour. He was generous to us that day and besides, let us out early. So back I came to dear old North Hall steps—where the girls congregate; never on the “boys’” steps, no thank you! ppointmen ALAMEDA ALUMNI WHO ARE ATTENDING STAN- FORD UNIVERSITY. 2 eo 2 = Bobby’s Triumph is that awfu exclaimed Bobby's sister, wheel o abou “That,” placidly remarked Bobby’ up from her magazine, “1s | l “Well, of all unheard th What’s the sad occasion of this, Mother?

Now, buildings like the “Call” were used for news stands, in New York. IT now summoned a taxiplane and motioned to the driver to take me to the “Waldorf-Astoria.” No sooner said, than done. It was almost like a fairy tale. Arriving at the hotel, I left my suit case and went to procure breakfast. It was a fine meal and after tipping the waiter fifty dollars, I decided to see the world, and though it should take a day’s time, I thought it would be worth while. Standing on the corner waiting for my subway signal, | heard a boy overhead crying “Extra.” I called to him and he swooped by me taking the money and depositing the paper in my hand, by means of a small machine at his side. How modern everything was! The International Aerial Navigation Company had its offices at the foot of Fifth Avenue and thence I was shot, in a subway tube, so fast that it was necessary to distribute oxygen generators to the passengers, so that they could breathe. At length, I was seated in an enormous steel air craft, whose engines were already humming below, and the next minute we were on our way. ‘The course lay through the great Western city of San Francisco, which was now the third largest city in America. We had left New York at nine o'clock, but owing to trouble with the machinery, it was noon before we arrived in the heart of the West. How that air-ship did travel! When we were crossing the Rockies, we were making up time and from Reno (where I saw a special train leaving with a great many rooters, whom | afterward learned were from Reno and were going to play their annual game of Rugby with their old rivals, lameda High), we made the fast time of two minutes to San Francisco. The ship did not stop at San Francisco, but crossed the bay to a town which I did not recognize, till I saw a sign “Alameda High School,” on an enormous stone building. [In this city, I learned we were to stop for lunch, for the place had come to be known as the “Coney Island of Amer- ica” and had many wonderful facilities in regard to hotels and pleasure resorts. How good it felt to be back in my own town again, but how changed everything was! My first desire was to eat lunch and I was directed to Surf Beach Park, an enormous resort, with every imaginable amusement. There I sat down to eat, in a large dining room, with a splen- did view of the great ships and aeroplanes of San Francisco Bay. Many people filled the spacious beach, and the bathing suits—how different they were from those I saw when | used to go swimming. Having finished my lunch and with an hour to spare, before my ship sailed, I decided to visit the places where | spent my childhood day s. Leaving the Park, I got into an underground train and was shot through a tube, into the middle of Park - Street. Could this be Park Street? that I could not recognize it to be that quiet street of nickle- There were so many people, odeons and small stores. I saw a sign which read “Park Theatre.” but there were no longer moving pictures and I saw by a notice that the “Park” had s« ld out to the Orpheum Circuit. My heart longed to see again, that big gold sign | had seen when I arrived and I did not wait long, to turn into Central avenue, toward the school. What a change!

He was gazing at her with as rapt an expression as ever was seen on the face of a monk on his knees before his Madonna. He seemed car ried out of the dingy street, and I think he imagined himself back in stnny Italy, walking in the fields with the girl who meant Italy and his home to him. Suddenly two over-dressed merican girls broke into the picture. They came down the street with that awful hobble-restricted stride which so many people of no originality affect now. They were chewing gum, and talking in those coarse, strident tones which pierce one through and through. They ‘grasped the little scene in a glance, but missed the beauty of it. Immediately they fell to giggling, and passing rude remarks and meaning glances in tended to reach the ears and eyes of the two Italians. I did not hear the conversation, but caught something about ‘those awful duds,’ with a glance at the finery of the girl. But I was glad to see that they failed of their purpose. How these simple foreign folk joy in the love of bright color! It was Ruskin, I think, who said that the love of pure color shows a pure heart. Just then my car came and TI left the pleasant comedy. But all the way home, I wondered why some people always close their eyes to the pleasant human side of things and ridicule the clothes and actions of others, when their own are as bad or worse.” Mitprep ApAms, ’12.
