Dr. George C. Thompson and the Members of the faculty in appreciation of their never failing interest in all the school activities, we, the students of the Hlameda Digh School gratefully dedicate this issue of the 4“ Heorn ”? t High School, the editors extend a hearty greeting. Fg Be (EH) S) With the publication of this volume a great respon- bare Ss sibility is ended for the editorial staff. We hope eee that the Acorn of 1913 will be received kindly, since it is the best that we have to offer. In this semester, the Alameda High School has broadened in many ways. School spirit, or that indefinable something called “pep,” has again enlivened the school. We have tried, not so much to make radical changes in the Acorn, as to improve by making it expressive of and worthy of the school. In our at- tempts we were hampered,—hampered by doubts of policy, by financial limits, and by the usual ignorance concerning the pub- 2 O the faculty, friends and members of the Alameda lishing of a school paper. To all those who have aided us we wish to express our gratitude. It is needless to say that in the work of building‘up and hammering into shape this publication, the staff would have been greatly handicapped were it not for the aid received from the faculty, the contributors, the printers, and from the editors of last semester’s Acorn. We also ac- knowledge our debt to those who have financially made this volume a possibility; our advertisers, the High Senior Class, and the purchasers. To all these, therefore, the editors and staff of the Acorn of June, Nineteen Hundred and Thirteen, de- sire to express their most sincere appreciation. —THE EDITORS.

It grows late and soon the warriors will depart to lay their offering at the prophet’s door. There is much to be done yet and I must help.” So saying she left the tent and Wichita alone with her thoughts. One persistent thought kept mind. Was it unfair that Galpaxi must part with his most beloved toy while she could with a clear conscience retain hers? Indeed shouldn’t the squaws make some offering for the success of their warriors? Watoma had said women of other nations were brave, why shouldn't the women of hers be brave also? So she thought on and on, and always she turned her fingers in and out the string of beads with a lov- ‘ng, caressing movement. running through Wichita’s Finally Watoma, Galpaxi and the chief returned and all be- came silent in the wigwam. Wichita knew the men had made their offerings; she also knew that Galpaxi had laid his treas- ured bow on the altars of his fathers. Presently all slept in the little wigwam but Wichita. She tossed restlessly and her tired eyes refused to close. Finally she arose and stealing softly from the wigwam, she stoox outside in the white moonlight. Then she walked onward with soft stealthy steps toward the dark forest beyond. She dic not notice which way she turned, but walked rapidly on anc on. Suddenly with a gasp she stopped. hut of the prophet before it. ments and—yes, there on top lay the swift bow of Galpaxi, her brother. She caught her breath, a vague apprehension of Right before stood the Eagerly she gazed at the objects pile Ot many varieties were they :—bows, skins, orna- the supernatural stealing over her. Why had she been led thither? She had not come voluntarily, for engrossed in her thoughts, she had not noticed which path she had followed. It all seemed to point to one thing—she must sacrifice her 20 beads. And so she stood clasping the beloved necklace in her brown hands, gazing at the offerings of her tribe. Meanwhile Watoma had awakened at the departure of her daughter and had followed her at a short distance into the forest. What could be in the child’s brain to cause her to leave the shelter of the warm hut? What, too, had prompted the strange question? Was the blood of her white ancestors stir- ring in her veins, calling her away to the civilization of the white man which the woman half-loved, half-hated? Watoma followed until Wichita stopped. Then she hid herself behind a tree near by and watched the struggle going on in the heart of the child with the blood of two continents running in her veins. Would the Indian blood and her surroundings triumph or would the vague call of a conscience and self-sacrifice of the other nation prevail? For some time Wichita stood still and gazed upon the offer- ing. Then, drawing herself up to her full height, she unwound the beads from about her neck. Never had she looked so much For a brief moment she hesitated, then stepping forward she wound them about the bow of Galpaxi. Then turning swiftly, with a low half-smothered sob, she sped from the spot and from the forest. In the morning the warriors departed early. As they stalked stealthily through the forest, Galpaxi left his father for a mo- ment to run to the prophet’s hut for a last fond look at the bow. As he gazed, he became astonished. What was that wound about his precious bow? Approaching nearer, he looked down upon a little string of shells. Then softly retreating, he sped away, for he had seen and understood, Early in the morning, Watoma had called Wichita and to- gether they had set out for the hills. Watoma silent and un- communicative, Wichita wondering. When they reached a wooded space on a hillside, Watoma stopped beneath a gnarled old oak and sat down on the soft a princess.

The wind was raging with all his violence and the thick- ening snow was deep on the path. As soon as the stranger had left them, the wife said to her husband in a low but advising tone, with tears, “My master, how cruel you are! It is not that we should suffer this ruined life because we did not plant the right seeds in our foregone days. To serve to every one with all we have, even to this poor traveler, is to serve Shippen Hogii at Kamakura. “T am unable to see and let that old, feeble traveling monk go without paying any due tribute to him! Is it not possible that we can entertain him a night? To warm his trembling body with fire and to satisfy his hunger with a meal of millet?” “Oh, my worthy wife!” replied the husband, much moved by her strange advice. “Why didn’t you tell it to me little earlier? Oh, my fault! J see it, I see it! If we have some millet it is best we can afford. Prepare the meal with it and the fire at once, my darling, while I will hurry after the stranger and bring him back.” So saying, he left the house in hurry. Two minutes later he was back with the helpless stranger and all three were around the small, square fire place, which is cut in the middle of the room. The stranger monk enjoyed the meal of millet, though it was the first time he had ever tasted it. Soon the night approached with still more violent snow storm and the cold increased hour after hour. But as their poverty had provided no quilt with which to keep the stranger comfortable, they decided to talk the night over around the fire. So they made a good fire and forgot the bitter cold out- side. As the night rolled on, the storm seemed to have calmed its violence slightly, but the cold became severer and severer. Toward the morning when the cold was severest, all the kindling woods were used up and there was no way of provid- ing them. The master and his wife tried in vain every possibl e way to procure some. Suddenly the master rose and brought out, from the shelf, below the window, three potted plants. The one was a plum, budding already under the snow, the other was pine clad in deep evergreen. And the third was a cherry in the splendid aspect, with well trimmed boughs. They were so beautiful that the stranger could hot help crying out, “Such a beautiful potted plants. They speak undoubtedly your great assiduity for a long time in rearing them up.” “They are not worth your praise,” replied the master. ‘For- merly I had several hundreds of them. But jus t before I had fallen to this impoverished present condition, I distributed them all among my friends. Yet I valued these three so much. I could not part with them. “No wonder! They are most charming ones that my eyes ever looked upon.” “That is enough of praise, my friend,” continued the master, interrupting the monk. “The pleasure of bringing up those potted plants belong entirely to those people of well-to-do class, and to us who are unable even to get daily living with ease, they are unnecessary now. Especially at this moment, warmth is all we need. Oh, how cold it is!” “But take care, sir master,” remarked the monk. “Preserve them, as they are so beautiful, that you may enjoy them when you get back to your power again.” “Ah, that is only a sweet imagination, my power will never come back.” Then cutting those three well brought up plants of the pots without the least grudge against it, he made the fire. Once more they stretched out their hands from three sides of the fire place, and forgot even the severest cold.. Meanwhile these unordinary deeds and the sympathetic heart of the husband and the tender and graceful manner of his wife gave great impression upon the stranger. So, think- ing that they must have been the member of some respected family once, he suddenly asked in reverend tone, “Sir, there is something yet, I do not know what, that tells me that you must have been of high birth. Permit me to learn your name and birth.” “I am unworthy to be named to you.” “Say that not so, sir. I think you are not an ordi- nary man.” “If you insist on it so urgently, I have nothing to hide from you. I am Tsuniyo Genzaemon Sano,” and, pointing to his wife, this is my wife Shirae,” he replied with dignified tone. “Was that you, Lord Sano, and your madam, Shirae? Pray, how did it happen that my Lord Sano is ruined to this pitiful condition?” “Ah, that is a sad story! As you may know, my mother had died while I was still young. And my father, one of the knights of Shippen at Kamakura, had a second wife. A son was soon born to her, a step-brother to me. Every- thing went fine while my father was living, but upon his death everything came to a change. My step- brother then conspired to murder my life and at the same time to get posses- sion of the family title and estate of Sano. So I left secretly with my wife and sought refuge on this solitary country seat,” was the sad reply. “But, had the wickedness of your step-mother not been proved at the court of Kamakura in your favor?” “My friend,” continued he in sadder tone, “the hand of fortune is beyond human control. The trouble started after the departure of most righteous judge, Shippen Tokiyori.” “As I understand, then, the government at Kamakura at the present time is in the hand of evil souls, and these evil souls would not help your right to the title of Sano family. That is a sad story!’ said the stranger, thoughtfully. As he spoke these words a certain powerful light was shining in his eyes, which promised him to be also an unordinary man. “But my love for Kamakura has not deserted me at all for all these, master Stranger,’ continued Genzaemon Sano. “Though I am in such a disgrace at present, I always feel my obligation to Kamakura. Behold!” pointing to a dark corner, “there is my torn armor and rusty spear, and in yonder stall is my steed, though thin. Through many hardships | have kept them, and I will keep them hereafter in order to be ready to join the call of Kamakura at any time.” Hearing these courageous words, the heads of two listeners dropped downward and tears were in their eyes. “By that, I do not mean to wish that some disaster should happen to Kamakura,” he added, in the voice stronger than ever before. “But, if I continue to live this life of poverty, I have no means of regaining my father’s family title; my arms ring for vengeance, but I will only die of hunger! That is all my regret!” There was silence for a short interval and noth- ing was heard except the voices of raging wind and the con- stant fall of the snow from overladen leaves of bamboo bush. Soon the fire, which was built by the sacrifice of the valuable plants of the pots, gave out and the long winter night saw daylight again. The dreary snow storm seemed to have ceased and only the wind was raging. The stranger monk, who was deeply moved by the pitiable story of Sir Genzaemon Sano, was then preparing to set out. Genzaemon and Shirae ad- vised him to sojourn one more day, to wait the end of the storm, but the traveler started to the gate, saying: “Your kindness is deeply inlaid in my heart, and I will never forget it. We will surely meet again some day in more fortunate condition.” “If you insist upon doing so, I will not delay you any long- But pray, my friend, when you happen to pass this way ain, do not forget to stop at our house, though ugly and uncomfortable. “And you, my master Sano, if you happened to visit Kama- a, forget not to call at my monastery. I may perhaps be Ip to you. Sayonaro!” So saying, the stranger monk left the Sano family cottage and passed away into the snow. Two months had passed since this incident, when suddenly a gathering was called upon all knights in the country by the Shippen of Kamakura. ‘A serious matter has arisen, arise and close in to Kama- kura!” The peace of the country was broken and what a stir was there! From every quarter of the country, the knights, eager to accomplish the deeds of reputation and honor, arose in arms and poured into Kamakura. Thus the great chance had arrived to our Genzaemon Sano, to prove his bravery. He clad himself in that torn armor, and taking his rusty spear under his arm, left his home on the back of his thin but faith- ful steed. He hurried over hills, through valleys, and across plains, and at last arrived at Kamakura. There were already gathered thousands of knights, all in beautiful suits of armor and on fiery steeds. Indeed the whole gathering presented a majestic scene. It had an appearance of a forest of long spears, intermixed with glittering helmets. But poor Sano! With torn armor, rusty spear, and thin horse, had an aspect of a copper cent among numerous shining gold pieces. As he joined the multitude, the knights who were near him laughed, ridiculed and made fun of his poor attire. However, he stood calmly and waited further order of the Shippen. Soon the officials were out on inspection of the gathered 29 Deis. knights. Upon noticing Sano, one of them approached near and demanded: “You are requested to the presence of Shippen Tokiyori.” “Sir, I am a poor knight of unworthy name. Is it mistake for some other knight?” with surprise. replied Sano, being “Hig request is to take to him that knight who comes here today clad in torn armor, holding a rusty spear, and riding on a thin “Not so, my knight,” said the deep voice of an official. —H AKAG|- S88 EXETES|,LT GMSA..AAL AHA SSS, SS S oooh: AA »’™WWNN SS SSS RP etatatete at LE ROY KRUSI EVA STEELE KENNETH LOGAN President Vice-President Secretary EDWINA MOYES EDWIN BARNES ROSE O'CONNELL Treasurer Class Representative Sara te VAS Ped at LOTTIE RUSSELL AUSTIN EIMER LAURA WANGEMAN ee sae nae!

The comedy of “728,” presented by the Class of June, ‘13, proved a great success, and more than fulfilled all expectations. The cast, chosen by Mr. Carlyle, was an admirable one. Each member worked hard to do his part to the best of his ability. Every seat was sold, as well as standing room. Through the able management of Edwin Barnes, the class netted over $159.00. The class, as well as the cast, entered into the spirit of the play, and from start to finish gave to the cast their support and approval. The scenes were first laid at the Bargiss’ country home and later at their apartments in New York. Austin Eimer and deline Toye, as Mr. and Mrs. Bargiss, showed a great deal of talent. Irene Wuerz, playing the title role, seemed more at home on the stage than in the class-room. The acting ability of Wendell Hauch as leading man aroused the admiration of all his fellow-students. The parts of Mr. and Mrs. Hollyhock were well taken by Hayward Thomas and Audrey Spence, re- spectively. LeRoy Krusi made a splendid Italian. From his accent you would have thought he had just “come over.” Laura Wangeman made a neat and charming maid. Truman Miller was an ideal professor. Elmer Stone as Hollyhock’s manager made a true farmer. The postman was.well repre- sented by Kenneth Logan. Every one connected with the production deserves praise, especially the manager and his assistants. Much credit is also due to Miss Haworth, who, by her patience and kindness, gave help and encouragement to all participating in the production of the play. —EVA STEELE, ‘13.

Alice Brune’s forwardness to the bashful(?) little freshmen, hoping it may prove their salvation. VIII.

Notes of Interest for the Term of June, 1913 LECTURE ON FOREIGN POSTERS. §ANUARY a2ist, Mr. Meyers, head of the California School of Arts and Crafts, delivered a most inter- esting lecture on foreign posters. The High School auditorium was made attractive by a splendid display of colored posters arranged artistically along the walls. Mr. Meyers illustrated his remarks with these posters which he had brought from Germany, France, and Spain. He told of the foreign method of advertising, as compared with the glaring “bill boards” of America. Instead of attracting attention by means of mere quantity of material, in these coun- tries small posters of great beauty, printed from designs of well known artists, are used and found to be the most effective. Not only from a business standpoint are these posters most successful, but by them the people are given real art. Mr. Meyers’ lecture was enthusiastically received, and we are sure that all attending learned something about the art of advertising. LINCOLN DAY READING. February 12, 1913. On Lincoln Day, the students gathered in the auditorium to hear an appropriate program. Dr. Thompson spoke a few words concerning the greatness of Lincoln and then introduced Miss Berg, who read Mary Raymond Andrews’ “Perfect Trib- ute.” The students knew there was a treat in store, as Miss Berg had favored them before. From the attention in the room during the reading and from the silence afterward, we know that the students greatly appreciated the program. ARBOR DAY. March 7. The program for the afternoon was put into the hands of Mr. Agard and his Oral English Class, who made it a very pleasant one. Moreover, as the speeches were prepared in a day and not memorized, they seemed more the direct words of the students. Miss Laura Wangeman spoke on the life and work of Luther Burbank; Mr. Edward Bates and Mr. Ed. Joseph discussed the conservation of national forests. These three members of the Oral English Class certainly deserve commendation. It is very gratifying to find students who are able to speak before the school on holidays, so that it is not necessary to seek an outsider for every occasion. LECTURE ON THE PANAMA CANAL. On March 12th, Mr. Lick of the Panama-Pacific Exposition Company spoke at the Lincoln School on the Panama Canal. The lecture was given especially for the Physical Geography Class and the High Seniors of the High School, but could not be given in our auditorium, as it was illustrated by motion pictures, and we have no machine. A large crowd gathered to see the delightful stereopticon pictures of the proposed buildings for the Fair. MOTION PICTURE LECTURE ON GOOD SALESMANSHIP. On April 3, 1913, under the auspices of the “Star and Key Society,” a moving picture lecture was given by Mr. N. Mitch- “ ell of San Francisco, on “Good Salesmanship.” The films and machine we brought from San Francisco for the occasion. 1 iearty laughter from all. The ‘k over Christmas vacations have, we hope, , setting forth of these common mistakes of teur salesmen Mitchell’s lecture was appreciated exceedingly by the LECTURE ON ENGINEERING COURSES. April 22. Mr. Arthur Alvarez, formerly of the A. H. S., now a member of the faculty of the University of California, addressed the Trigonometry students April 22nd, on the training of an engi- neer, the qualities required of an engineer, and the opportuni- ties usually open to engineers. “As far as engineering is concerned, there are three subjects of fundamental importance,—Mathematics, Physics and Eng- lish. [t is not the isolated facts that are valuable, but it is the training which prepares you for more intensive study along similar lines in college. While devoting your attention to the technical side of engineering, you cannot afford to miss sub- stantial electives like History, English and Economics. There is not the slightest doubt that the man with broad training in the so-called culture subjects in addition to his specialized knowledge is the man who has the best chance to rise. “The necessary qualities of an engineer are-natural rather than acquired ; absolute honesty, keen judgment in dealing with human nature, tact.and firmness, executive ability, close ob- servation and clear perceptions. There is always room at the top, but do not be afraid of beginning at the bottom, for your training will tell.” MR. AGARD’S TUESDAY NIGHT LECTURES. The Board of Education has authorized a course of free lectures, known as the High School Extension Course. These talks are informal and are intended to interest graduates and parents of pupils. On nine Tuesday evenings Mr. Agard has lectured on the Growth of Types of the Novel, and on the three other evenings has talked on Christmas and Its Observ- ance, on the Exhibition of a Greek Play, and on Folk Plays and early Dramatic Representations. It is hoped that other teachers also may be made to take part in this profitable extension of our High School. Mr. Agard’s lectures up to date have been on:— 1. Beowulf and early Folk Poetry. Chaucer and the Short Story. The Political Romance. Romance of Chivalry. The Literature of Roguery. Allegory and Pilgrims’ Progress. The Realistic Novel. The Sentimental and Ultra-Romantic Novel. The Humanitarian and Problem Novel. Christmas and Its Observance in History. The Exhibition of a Greek Drama. Folk Plays and Their Representations. EXHIBITION OF SCHOOL WORK. May 28 and 209. On May the twenty-eighth and twenty-ninth the school is to be opened to visitors. On the afternoon of each day there is to be a general exhibit of art and technical work, such as cabinet-making, freehand and mechanical drawing, designs, water-colors, maps, charts, gr aphs, copper work, and domestic science and art. There will also be briefs, outlines of plays, stereopticon slides and other things of interest. On Wednes- day and Thursday afternoons there will be special programs in several classrooms, to which visitors are invited. On Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock an educational vaude- ville and reception will be given. The vaudeville will include an old English musical play, a short French play, a German, a Spanish, and a Latin play, a debate, and a demonstration of scientific curiosi ties and wonders of modern invention. Music will be furnished by the School Orchestra. WHAT SOME OF US ARE LEARNING. I believe there are a very few of the students in High School, besides those taking the course, who know about what the Alameda High School girls are doing in Domestic Science over at the Porter School. We make different dishes every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, while on Mondays we have lecture work relating to all branches of household economy, and recitation. The time is used on Thursday to write up notes and experiments. Every term we give three or four full course meals, either a breakfast, luncheon or dinner. For these, the menus are selected from those dishes we have already prepared. At a luncheon we entertained Mr. Wood and Dr. Thompson and at other times several of the teachers. -I will let one of them tell you herself what she thought of it. Each one of us is so busy in his own special department opportunity to follow closely the work that there is little done elsewhere. But occasionally there comes One day a student came to ask me if I would at a breakfast to be given at 11:3 following morning. I accepted gladly. On arriving at the School I was met by the girl who had invited me, and into a small dining room on the ground floor. a table laid for six. In the center was a beau vellow roses and at each place was an artis white place card. The dainty white china with banding carried out the color-scheme, i inviting marmalade. I learned that the China belongs to the A. H. S. Cooking Class, and my attention was called to the A. H. monogram on the silver. One of the girls acted as host, one as the hostess, and the other three as guests. Two girl students served as maids, observing strictly all the duties and proprie ties, as did also the host and hostess. And I was very sur prised at the efficiency evident in every aspect of the service. The food was perfectly prepared and daintily served. Never have I tasted more delicious waffles or coffee. In fact, every thing was as good as could be and there was no lack any- where. The menu was the one selected by the girls from the num ber submitted by the members of the class. The class prob- lem was to provide a breakfast for a given number at a set price. The complete breakfast for six cost 59 cents! I wish each girl in the school might have the practical training in Domestic Science, for there is not only opportunity to acquire the knowledge of the manual side of cooking and serving, but also there are invaluable lessons in economy of time and mate- rial, household arithmetic, orderliness, and good taste. —A GUEST. es ee ee RGANIZATION Che Associated Student Body President Vice-President DOROTHY BAUM Secretary Treasurer MR.

The students have supported every activity of the school in a splendid manner and the success that attended the vaude- ville show, the Senior Play, the yell contest, and this issue of the Acorn clearly shows the spirit that prevails throughout the school. The prosperity which marks this term is proven by the fact that after printing our Constitution we still have a large amount of money in the treasury. I sincerely hope that in the future the students will be united in their efforts to secure for the school a prosperity greater than that enjoyed by any other high school in the state. . ‘ WENDELL M.

At this meeting it was decided that the Alameda High School join the Examiner contest, and Charles Tilden was elected as candidate. All were urged to support the candidate. March 28, 1913.

Mr. Barnes gave a few selections on the piano which were greatly enjoyed by all. May 8, 1913. The purpose of the meeting being first to get “dope” on the Acorn, and second to raise enthusiasm for the Examiner con- test, Mr. Krusi, Mr. Eimer, Mr. Tilden and Mr. Barnes spoke. The new yells were tried out for the first time before an audi- ence. Administrative Board Meetings January 20, 1913. A great deal of business was carried on at this meeting, as it was the first one of this term. Possibly the most important was the unanimous election of Mr. Krusi as Editor of the Acorn and Mr. Eimer as manager. Also there was the election of Mr. Bradford and Mr. Hardin as baseball delegates . January 27, 1913. Tt was decided at this meeting, after a great deal of discus- sion, that the Alameda High School join the Bay County League. The Acorn staff was voted upon. February 10, 1913.

Che Astronomy Club At the close of school on Thursday, January twenty-third, a group of students met in Miss Hewitt’s class-room and formed a club, the purpose of which was to study astronomy. The officers who were later elected (unanimously) were: President, Carlos Mundt; Vice-President, Mary Dun- bar; Secretary, Harold Rog- ers. The purpose of the club being one of pleasure, no dues were declared payable. The general rule adopted concerning the club activities was as follows: When weather conditions per- mitted, observation of the heavenly bodies was to be in order, but when the weather was unfavorable for observa- tion reports were to be given on previously assigned topics. A notable evening was that of March fifth. The atmosphere was exceedingly inert and, there being no moon, conditions were thoroughly favorable to successful observation. Venus was seen to be like a moon within several days of the half moon phase. Saturn and his rings could be plainly seen. The group of the Pleiades was also observed; much wonder being expressed at the large number of stars visible. Finally, the great Nebula in Orion was noticed to be a great mass of mat- ter, seemingly very hot. Two telescopes were used, one being school property, the other belonging to o ne of the members of the club. Both did excellent work, considering the diameter of the lenses, two inches. A trip to Chabot Observatory has been planned and all mem bers of the club anticipate an enjoyable evening. It is to -be hoped that other school clubs will be formed with an equal amount of success. —CARLOS MUNDT. Che Star and Key Society PERMANENT MEMBERS. LAWRENCE DEAN . VERAL HOGAN High Seniors.

The meetings have been exceptionally well attended, and have been full of interest and “pep.” The first meeting of the term was called by last term’s Presi- dent, LeRoy Krusi, on January 13, and was attended by a large number of students. Its purpose was to elect officers and establish an organization of permanent members.

R Z pe KIA ; FS ON AK ee THE BASEBALL SHOW. eS | N the evening of March 8, 1913, the spacious assem- FS bly hall of Haight School was filled with students of Alameda High, their parents, and people residing in Oakland, Fruitvale, Berkeley, and San Francisco. Their eager voices and brilliant faces brought forth the idea that they were awaiting some big affair. And indeed they were, for this was the evening of the Stupendous Baseball Show, At 8:15 P. M. the curtain was supposed to rise, but it didn’t! Anyway, the school orchestra, which is considered the greatest congregation of amateur musicians this side of the estuary, filled the hall with heavenly music, causing most of the audi- ence to do the weeping stunt. Throughout the performance the orchestra played its wonderful repertoire, much to the delight of the on-lookers. Xl el ; Kh MAN, y 7] “aA = on be | Yl NA Y bs $e al Gh, PS . EMIS ati. AtNmawn 2: Immediately after the first selection by the orchestra came John Nicholson, the Caruso of Alameda High, whose exquisite voice filled the hall with such music as had never before been heard there. Following John came Addie Combs, the wonderful poetess. She rendered several selections of her own superb composing, and the audience was intensely interested throughout her act. Number four on the program was a skit by Nathaniel Neal and George Latham. These fellows, although yet very young, were indeed good, and the school wishes them great success when they go on “The Broadway” during the 1915 Fair. Following them appeared the wizardess of the ivories, Eliz- abeth Frater. Her selection was, as usual, marvelous. A skit termed “The Pipe of Peace” was next, featuring Ade- line Toye, Randolph Sharpstein, and Velma Delameter. Ade- line Toye, a second Maude Adams, is also a suffragette, and the only one Alameda High has. Randolph Sharpstein, tak- . sy ing the part of Joe Terrill, Ad’s husband, taught the boys how to make love, how to roll pills, and how to succeed in married life. Velma Delameter, as Molly the maid, was so very good that she undoubtedly will be the leading lady in her class play, which will be given in April, 1915. Keep the date reserve your ticket. After this followed a short intermission, during which the orchestra played some classic selections. Next on the menu came the famous trio, consisting of Zdenka Buben, Merrill Brown, and Rudolph Buben, with their touching and beautiful music. Following them was Florence Miller, the operatic soprano, who is engaged for six weeks at the New Tivoli opera house. Number ten on the program was Edwin Barnes, the “six- foot-five, kill-kare-kartoonist,’ who drew some very funny car- toons. open and Following Ed., and number eleven on the program, was the minstrel show. In this were featured a number of fellows as, “Washington Bugoo” Bates, “Bud Pernoll” Brewer, “Duke of Norway” Joseph, “A Bird Rastus” Krusi, and “Deacon Sambo” Vaughan, with a chorus of “Jackson” Spear, “Alexander” Lynch, “Jefferson” Pearson, “Spearmint” Bates, “Adams Pep- sin” Palmer, and “Percival” Clark. The fellows, despite their names, did exceedingly well and their clever jokes and snappy songs were an addition to the program. But the real hitting of the piece was contributed by some visitors from Oakland, who later proved their generosity by paying for the retinting of the walls, made necessary by their poor marksmanship. The show was considered a great success, but the greatest success was in the financial line, for the show netted the good sum of $85 to the A. H. S. treasury. KENDRICK VAUGHAN, The Baseball Show The team once gave a baseball show, There was some talent there; Although I fear that some might say, What’s that? The Dickens! Where? Flossie Miller with her voice, And Addie with her line, A combination such as that Certainly was fine. The orchestra played the whole time, And some time people shouted, “Oh, Hoffman, pray take it away, That classic(?) should be routed.” Ran Sharpstein and Ad. Toye were there, In a clever little skit, And to produce a thing like that Must sure have took some grit. The vegetables commenced to come, When Nat Neal took the stage, And Latham saw before his eyes Eggs famous for their age. DRAMATICS | Red Barnes was there with his red hair, And with his charcoal too, But pray tell me, as to a friend, Just what was that he drew? But last came Bates’ Minstrels, black, The crown(?) of the whole show, Bill Brewer, Duke, A Bird, and Deac Were wild, but awful slow(?) They cracked some naughty little jokes, What’s that, you say they ragged? I do not know, if that is so, But fine ripe eggs they bagged. Che Senior Play “A Bachelor’s Wooing.” What was Cast on at ta WING to a decided lack of interest, there has been KSvae7sie «no school debating team this term. There was some ss KG ra ¢ . talk of an inter-school debating league, but as yet ae ies ; cd : EO nothing definite has been done about it. ’ Neverthe- sae of tee less, we have gotten training along this line among ourselves. The Oral English debates on various topics have been de- veloped exceptionally well. Freshmen History Classes have decided the questions of the ancient Greeks and Romans. The rising generation of political economists have discussed the burning questions of the day. But the most exciting and most interesting of all have been the two High Senior History de- bates. Great spirit was shown by the two classes, and for a £0. BARNES 13 day or so before the debates, there was a good deal of friendly rivalry as to the relative merits of the teams. Each class lost and won a debate and proved itself to be a good loser as well as a good winner. It seems too bad that there is not more interest shown in debating, for, although there is work involved, yet it certainly is good fun, and training in public speaking in these days surely never comes amiss. Debating develops sharp wits and clear thinking, which no one will deny are necessary and desirable qualities. 3ut perhaps next term! Who knows? Here’s hoping! ADELINE TOYE.

Of the events that closed the school life of the Class of December, 1912, graduation itself was, of course, the most im- portant. Haight School auditorium, used by a High Senior Class for the first time, proved inadequate to accommodate the large crowd interested in the graduation. After a most interesting program the exercises closed with the presentation of the diplomas by Mr. Wood and a reception by the graduates. Among class activities of lesser importance, the best remem- bered event is the raising of the class flag. At four-thirty one morning a bunch of fellows (supposedly the pride of the school) could be seen stealing stealthily toward the High School with a beautiful green pennant. Gay climbed up the pole and attached the pennant as far up as possible. The girls of the class showed their “pep” by coming down shortly after and remaining till morning. Fighting commenced at recess, but was stopped by Dr. eta 0, Unfortunately the Seniors were forced to take down their flag before the lower classmen were able to get it. The next event was the dinner given to the High Senior Class by the Low Seniors. We were royally entertained, both dinner and speeches being excellent. As we had given a din- ner last year, we all appreciated the work involved The dinner was followed by a dance given by the High Seniors at Haight School auditorium. The hall was effectively decorated by the Low: Senior Class. The dance was most successful, although the presence of our flag caused quite a riot for a few minutes. The last days of the Class of December, 1912, were indeed happy ones. We take this opportunity to thank all the friends of the class who helped to make these last days so memorable. —KATHERINE GELDERMANN, December, 1912, California University has counted from time to time quite a few former Alameda High School students. Today there are on the Campus more students who call Alameda High their Alma Mater than ever before. They are always interested in events in which Alameda High participates and are always ready to help the school to better itself. One of the best things they can do along these lines is to attend the Alumni meetings, which have afforded many pleasant reunions.

LANNE A ead Exchanges I wonder from whom it [ soon opened it and found a neat little card which invited the Acorn to a grand reception of High School Papers to be held at the Hotel Oak- land. Of course, I was “tickled to death,” for I knew that I would see many of my school friends there from other cities. Well, that eventful day, set for the reception, finally arrived and I went on my way, seated in a Santa Clara car. The car was close and stuffy, as usual, and I thought I would never get there when, lo and behold!-the gates of the Webster street bridge closed right in front of our car. I looked around for a boat and saw a large lumber-barge about two blocks off and just barely moving. I realized that I would have to wait about twenty minutes, so I tried to make myself as com- fortable as possible and have patience, While sitting there my thoughts turned to my friends whom [ would see at the reception. I knew that I would be ex- pected to criticise them, so I thought out my criticisms of the Exchange Department, in the hope that all the criticisms should be just to all parties. We do not want to lower the standard of the Exchange Department by giving unfair criticisms. I tried to keep the Golden Rule in my mind: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” One should look to see in what they excel as well as in what they fail. In judg- ing a paper it is necessary to know how many times the paper is printed. Without this information one is absolutely un- able to determine the value of a paper. If printed semi- LETTER for the Acorn! could be. annually, the criticisms should be more rigorous than if pub- lished monthly. Every paper should have a title page, so that the Exchange editor would not have to look through the ad- vertisements in order to learn what town the paper is from. A paper should be criticised if the table of contents is lacking, for this is very important. It is well to dedicate papers, espe- cially if printed semi-annually. If published monthly it is not so necessary, although it improves the paper. Above all, I would examine the Literary Department. To make that de- partment a success, the stories should be interesting. Poetry also adds to the paper. An unpleasant feature found in so many papers, which should be avoided if possible, is the placing of advertisements in the front of the book. There is plenty of room in the back. It is also a good idea to have a few joshes placed among the advertisements, for they keep the reader's interest until the end and direct attention to advertis- ers who might otherwise be overlooked. Three whistles and my thoughts came back to the bridge now closing. I found myself still on the Santa Clara car and on my way to Hotel Oakland. I soon arrived at. Thirteenth and Washington, transferred to a Dimond car and arrived at the Hotel in good time. I hastened to the dressing room and who should I see but my old friend from Manila High, “The Cocoanut.” The sto- ries that he told me were exceedingly interesting, especially “The Mangyanes in Sibuyan,” and “The Chinese New Year’s Day.” And the poetry he recited to me was simply wonderful, but, I swear, he was still wearing the same clothes that I had seen on him for the last two months. “Cocoanut,” why don’t you change your cover design from month to month, also your cuts: As “Cocoanut” and I were ascending to the reception room, | met “The Distaff,” from Girls ’ High School in Boston. All her stories were attractive, but short. The jokes she told me were good, but scattered here and there. I asked her why she didn’t form a Josh Department. Upon entering the reception room I heard a hearty shout of greeting, and upon turning around, I saw my old friend, “The Chaparral,” from Stanford University, Cal. The cuts that he showed me were certainly nifty, and say! his jokes were extremely clever and witty. But, as usual, the advertise- ments were strung all about him. Across the room, I spied my old companion, “The Wilmerd- ing Life,” from San Francisco. I enjoyed my talk with him very much, especially his original cuts and jokes. He was look- Then, I met “The Trident,” from Santa Cruz. ing well and jolly, but to save my life I couldn’t find how often he visited the students. The stories that he told me were not up to the standard. He spoke of an original idea of the Seniors. On the last days of school some of the Seniors vis- ited the various Grammar Schools and addressed the graduat- ing classes, each one choosing a topic of interest and profit to the incoming Freshmen. The idea was to rid the Freshmen of their “verdant hue.” This is certainly a good idea and might be followed by other schools. During the afternoon, I was introduced to the “Reporter.” It took me the longest time to find where he was from. Finally, in an advertisement on the inside of his coat, I saw Monte- bello. The Commercial Department certainly deserves praise for publishing such a good monthly paper. “The Cadet,” from the San Diego Army and Navy Academy at Pacific Beach, Cal., was a splendid fellow. On the whole, 88 he was very enjoyable, even if not well organized. Over in a corner, I caught sight of my friend, “The Re- vi ew,” from Murry F. Tuley High School. But where, oh, where, is the Tuley High? Oh! it must be in Chicago, for | saw an advertisement on the front of his coat with Chicago Business College. The stories that he told me were certainly very interesting, but I suggest that he arrange them in better order. Cuts were also lacking. “The Adjutant,” from Mt. Tamalpais Military Academy, showed me some excellent cuts. I had a good laugh over his jokes, but he might have enlarged on his school notes. ' T was very glad to see “Orange and Black,” from Los An- geles Intermediate School. He was a handsome looking fel- low, dressed in very good taste. I was much pleased with his conversation, his stories, and especially his poetry. He was up-to-date in all his topics and seemed to be very much interested in his new school. I hope that his expectations will be fulfilled. I left Hotel Oakland with “The Dawn,” from Esparto High. I wondered if he had a good time, his appearance was so sober. Nevertheless, he told me some very interesting stories. I arrived home safely and how I had enjoyed the afternoon. I was pleased to meet so many friends and I hope to see them again. Oh! I nearly forgot to tell you what I heard about myself. From the “Orange and Black” came this remark: “The Acorn, Alameda, has a unique idea in the ‘Times-Comet.’ The stories and poems show that Alameda does not need any more authors or poets. The joshes are very original.” From “The Trident,” Santa Cruz: “We are sorry to note that the Alameda High School fails to have enough spirit to support a regular school paper. We have found that such a paper does much towards inspiring school spirit and fostering school activities.” P= = @ G a: Ss O7 216--'@50084 eos broek 5; Ss at SOS Y LX eK RNA =tee28.— 2) Kd om: ae.

An enjoyable dance was given on February 21st by the Messrs. Hans Lemcke, Ed. Joseph and Samuel Terry for the pleasure of many of the local society folk. The music was rendered by Melville Herspring, one of Alameda’s most popu- lar musicians. Every one entered heart and soul into the evening’s pleasure and had a thoroughly good time. Among those present were the Misses Mary Dunbar, Loes Sharp, Ed- wina Moyes, Frances Garret, Kathleen Corson, Katherine Gel- dermann, Aileen Corde, Helen Neal, Amy Whitney, Dorothy Warren, Dorothy Soule, Ruth Howe, Charlotte Culver, Laura Wangeman, Margaret Temple, Bernice D’Evelyn, Alma Rob- inson, and the Messrs.

Younger Set Enjoy Evening as Guests of Miss Turner. A number of the younger set enjoyed the hospitality of the Thomas Turner home on Clinton avenue, Saturday evening, February the 22nd, as the guests of Miss Pauline Turner. The evening was given to dancing and other informal entertain- ment, and concluded with a dainty supper. Washington’s birthday was the inspiration for the decora- tions of flags and red, white, and blue streamers. A dance with favors of little cherry trees, hatchets, caps, and other sug- gestions of the day was one of the special features of the even- ing. Miss Manifold Is Hostess. Miss Edith Manifold entertained a group of her friends at her home Saturday night, February 22nd. The home was beautifully decorated with cherry leaves and hatchets for Washington’s birthday. The evening was spent in dancing and games, and was closed with a sumptuous supper. Among those who shared Miss Manifold’s hospitality were the Misses Carrie and Maud Grimes; Bernice, Gladys, and Mildred Atto, Guro Bryan, Dorothy Foster, Maud Singer, Pauline Krauss, Ethel Krauss, Mrs. H. H. Manifold, and Messrs. Alfred Krauss, Walter Bryan, Chester Singer, Wal- dron and Cecil Gardiner, Alex and Joseph Coney, Sanderson Ilderton, Sydney and Charles Manifold. Group of Society Belles Spend Week Vacation at Larkspur. The mid-term vacation looked forward to so much by the Alameda High School students was spent most enjoyably by the Misses Dorothy Soule, Amy Whitney, Dorothy Warren, Ruth Howe, and Bernice D’Evelyn at the beautiful and noted bungalow “Stayawhile,” situated on the terraced hills in the vicinity of Larkspur. The time was passed in the enjoyment of outdoor sports such as horse-back riding, rowing, tennis, golf, swimming, bicycling, and walking. During their stay the girls motored into San Anselmo, where they visited two of their fellow students, the Misses Marion Murdock and Edwina Moyes, who were spending their vaca- tion in the Murdock bungalow “Bembrae.” Kappa Alpha Pi Alumnii Are Hosts at Dance. The Kappa Alpha Pi Alumnii boys entertained a large num- ber of the local society girls and boys at a grand dance given on April 4th, in Adelphian Hall. The dance was looked for- ward to by all the guests, as it was the first of the big social events to take place after the Lenten season. The music was furnished by the St. Elmo Powell orchestra, one of the most famous in the bay cities. The hall was beautifully decorated in greens and spring flowers. The comfort of the dancers was looked to by the hosts and the capable manager, Domingo Bruzzone. The patronesses were the Mesdames L. Bruzzone, M. Chris- tensen, W. R. Newman, H. Hauch, W. W. Perkins, C. H. Johnson, C. A. Bradford, H. H. Etter, and C. B. Hollywood. Junior Dance on April 18th Great Success. The Junior Dance given by the Class of June, ’14, of the ee = ry . lameda High School at Adelphian Hall was a great success. The hall was decorated with greenery and pennants. An ex- cellent orchestra furnished the music, and every one of the 250 guests seemed to think the affair exceptionally enjoyable. Samuel Terry, assisted by William Brewer, and Mr. Daniels of the faculty arranged for the comfort of the dancers and man- aged the affair. The patronesses were Mesdames J. H. Nob- mann, J. H. Daniels, C. M. Culver, F. G. Braue, and Andrew Hay. Alpha Sigma Alumni Convention Dance at St. Francis Hotel. The Alpha Sigma Convention Dance was held at the St. Francis Hotel, in the gold ballroom, on April 26th. Many of the Alameda folk attended, among them being the Misses Helen Funke, Dorothy Warren, Katherine Geldermann, Les- lie Brown, Amy Whitney, Dorothy Soule, Marion Murdock, Edwina Moyes, Madeline Sanford, Helen Willkomm, Dorothy Baum, Bernice D’Evelyn, and the Messrs. Alexander Baum, Jack Pearson, Wright D’Evelyn, Horace Baum, Austin Eimer, Irving Culver, LeRoy Krusi, Edward Bates, Hall Funke, and William Howe. B.S. Shap star «91 Athletics HIS season has been highly successful in all forms of athletics. In the past the spring semester has been a “dead” one in most branches of activities. However, as the old school seems to have taken a new lease on life, this term began, what we hope to be, a new era in athletics. Alameda has not had a baseball team ‘worthy of especial mention during the last four years. This year we fought our way to the championship, and al- though defeated, “to err is but human”; thus our team is forgiven. The school is possessed of several species of genus “knocker,” but let it be said here, though the members of the team are small, comparatively, they have the necessary “pep.” [It is more than possible that the team’s brilliant work may be partly accredited to the new suits presented to them by the school. There is no reason why any member of Alameda High School might not attain physical distinction. Many fellows have good stuff in them, who do not turn out. There may be an unknown champion in the school! Look at Karl Shattuck, a product of this school, the world’s inter-collegiate champion hammer thrower! Look at Ed. Macauley, whose coast record still stands! There is no harm in trying, and the half unit given in any branch of athletics will make it well worth while. More men have supported track this spring than in any term for years. Ten new uppers were purchased and duly dis tributed. A term ago, one would have a hard time placing three. This semester many fellows have turned out and pros- pects are mighty bright for the future. Nothing has been done in swimming up to the. present time, although, as the season is just commencing, there are possi- bilities along this line. Tennis also has been neglected as a school activity. With our many school players starring in inter-park tournaments, we should certainly have a team. Last, but not least, football, with Charles Tilden leading our fighting bunch, we will clean up all opponents. Taking our athletics as a whole, we have mighty brilliant prospects on the field in the future. “Dine, JOSEPH, CaBASE BALL “Len” Hollywood issued a call for baseball candidates early in February, and the result was gratifying, to say the least. Captain “Len,” Younger, Stone, Branscheid, and Brewer were the only veterans from last year’s team. The team worked out under the guidance of Hollywood until a coach was able to be procured by the receipts of that “Stupendous Vaudeville Show.” “Toots” Bliss guided the team and turned out a win- ner. Various sand-lot and grammar-school stars presented themselves as recruits, and they leave Alameda much to expect in the future. Among the men out for team beside those men- tioned were Logan, Coffin, Dexter, Larkin, Dickinson, Durney, Sharpstein, Miller, Birbeck, Singer, Meehan, Wilson, Hamilton, Coney, Rhein, Vaughan, Degen, Pond, Sweeney, and Hunter. Alameda vs. California School Mechanical Arts. 12—3. The Lick Tigers tangled with Alameda in a practice game before a coach had been secured or the team had played to- gether. The Tiger, needless to say, was sent home with his tail betwi xt his legs. Our players showed us that with proper coaching the school had much to expect. Branscheid worked out in good form, allowing only four safeties. “Cap” Holly- wood, Brewer, Younger and Branscheid gathered a brace of hits. et - J EW oe 1913 TEAM, 2 BS tg D Ps = ’ oe P 9 “Nu4 tuoe A Alameda vs, St. Ignatius. 4—5- The Catholic school lads defeated “Cap.” Hollywood’s aggre- gation in a practice game. It was a close and interesting game, although marred somewhat by “crabbing.” The umpire gave us some pretty raw decisions. However, we lost. Our usual ninth inning rally started when Brewe1 singled, but “Windy” hit into a double play, thus dampening our chances. Brewer, Dexter and Stone hit well. St. Ignatius AB. R. H. SH. E.

On Washington’s birthday, our hopes crossed bats with Wilmerding and took the transbay boys into camp with a sensational ninth-inning rally. “Windy” Branscheid allowed the opposing bat-and-glove artists seven scattered bingles, while we gathered ten healthy swats. In the ninth Branscheid sin- gled, Dexter advanced him with a fence-breaker, Younger was hit by pitcher Baron, thus filling the cushions. “Baby” Brewer connected with the pellet for two sacks, cleaning the bases, also ending the game.

The need of a coach was keenly felt. Eight drives were allotted to the Sutter Street institution, while we gathered eleven from lanky Mr. Tissot’s offerings. The boys hit at inopportune moments. Cunning- ham of Lowell tore off a couple of sensational catches in the center pasture. Dexter, Younger and Brewer each annexed two bingles.

It was a game of slugging. Radke lifted the ball over left field fence for a homer. Adams leaned on the pill for a clean double, the ball going over Younger’s head and rolling under the fence. Billy Brewer was on the mound for Alameda, and after a bad first-inning pitched air-tight ball. Adams and Gimbal of Oakland each gathered three hits, the former hav- ing three two-baggers to his credit. Dexter connected for three swats, two being for an extra cushion. Coffin drove out two. “Windy” Branscheid slammed out a clean double. In the seventh inning our boys were beginning to find the opposing slabman’s offerings and the Oakland tribe began to stall for time. It was almost dark and Umpire Risley ordered the Oak- land team off the field, as a hot discussion was taking place. The blue and white bunch refused to play. Risley forfeited the game to us. It was so dark by this time it was impossible to continue. As Risley was not a regular league “ump,” we lost the game. Oakland Dill, lf Cunha, rst Bannan, 2nd . PRON.

Alameda and Fremont played one of the best exhibitions of the national game seen in high school baseball circles for years. The weather was ideal. Large crowds of rooters were present to cheer their respective teams. Our warriors under the guid- ance of “Toots” Bliss and “Cap” Hollywood showed them- selves to be of championship calibre..

They were also full of determination, so naturally Berkeley came out on the short end of a 7-4 score. Berkeley hasbeen a sort of a consistent winner in scholastic circles; and this victory was soothing syrup for the robbery in last season’s football. “Bud” Larkin appeared in the game; making a good impression and belting the globule on the nose for two sacks on his initial appearance. Branscheid had good control of the spheroid and had the Berkeley gents eating from his hand. 97 Not too much credit can be given to “Toots.” The boys played baseball, not sand-lot ping-pong. “Zacher” Dickinson was tried out on first and should appear on the initial sack to advantage in the near futu re. His over-anxiety caused him to drop the ball in the ninth. A quite forgivable error. Len Hollywood Captain AB. R. H. SH. E. Alameda oO Younger, If.-.-.....--....

April 5, Alameda had finally fought its way to the cham- pionship; and met Oakland Poly at the New Coast League grounds for the title of the B. C. L. The game was fast and the weather perfect. We had everything our own way had the team supported Windy; but we kicked away the champion- ship. Campi was never a myStery to our batters ; while Brans- cheid, pitching the game of his life, was touched for a lonely bingle. Let all the credit be given to “Windy.” Our warriors, unused to playing for championships on big league grounds, lost their nerve. “Len” Hollywood slammed out two drives, one for an extra cushion.

His stick was much feared by op- posing slabsters. “Len” erred, but his speed enabled him to kick a few around that other shortstops could not approach. He will be with us next year. Brewer, pitcher, right-field. This portly gentleman resem- bling “Bud” Pernoll, was an important factor in the season’s success. He heaves the pellet from the port side and heaves them over. His hitting ability was great; and he took a home- run for a single. He also was a sure man in the field. “Bill” will be present next season as our captain. Branscheid, pitcher, right-field. “Windy’s” elongated form was seen in action often. He was a good hitter; fast and accu- rate. His pitching excelled any other heaver in the league. He won consistently. It was not Windy’s fault we didn’t cop the rag. Mr. Branscheid’s face will be seen at school next term. Dexter, catcher. Although his first season, “Hack” played like a veteran. He led the team in extra base-clouts. Possess- ing a sure peg, he was a terror to the base-runners. Harold will be among us for another try. Logan, first base. “Ken” was a sure fielder, supporting the infield by his steady work. He was a fairly good sticker. Ken will grab off a sheep. Larkin, second base. Although coming out late, “Bud” demonstrated his ability to hold down the second cushion. It was his first season. He hit well, and was an excellent addi- tion. Bud will be with us for many moons. Stone, third base. “EI” took care of the difficult corner to perfection, handling many hard chances perfectly. His favor- ite occupation was tacking the ball on base-runners. He did this so gently that three were knocked out this season. “El” will be released by the faculty after many years and his diploma will be framed by the family. Coffin, center-field. “Bart” was a sure fielder during the past season. No one ever had any fear of the ball being muffed in his territory. His timely bingle always came in handy. “Bart” will be on deck when the gong clangs. Younger, left-field. “Ly” was an awful hound for his batting average, but, however, he had a pretty substantial one at the close of the season. He was a good fielder, possessing a strong arm. “Erny’ was the champion base-runner in the league. The baseman on the other teams did not know whether he was coming or going. “Erny” will be here if the undertaker don’t nail him. Lemcke, manager. Dutch was a great manager. He never had any trouble with his schedule. “Red’s” finances were al- ways straight and way ahead instead of behind, as has been the custom in baseball. Not too much praise can be heaped on his auburn head for his fine work. “Dutch” will graduate. Durney, utility infield. “Daffy” was a good little fi elder, al- though small. He was a fast man on the path. “Daff” leaves us for a trip East, but may return. Dickinson, utility infield. “Zacher” should appear well next season. He was good at either first or second. His healthy swing made many a pitcher tremble. “Zach” will be stopping the grounders again next spring. Baseball T seems to me that the team deserves a great deal of credit for the splendid showing it made this term under the leadership of Captain Hollywood. The team had several difficulties to overcome; first, in that it was composed practi cally of new men, there being only four veterans; second, the lack of a coach. But these were soon overcome, as may be seen by the results of the games played. The team was supported well financially. New suits were given them, and such a thing as a lack of balls was not known, which cannot be said of previous terms. The veterans, Captain Hollywood, Branscheid, Brewer and Stone, played splendid ball throughout the season. Some of the new men who made a good showing were Dex- ter, Logan, Larkin, Younger, Coffin, and Durney. Prospects for a winning team in the coming baseball season with Bill Brewer as captain, look decidedly good, for it will be a team composed practically of veterans with good material to fill the vacant places. A few words should be said about the good support given by the students at the league games. This was the right spirit to show, the only spirit which will bring home a winning team. HANS LEMCKE. Rooting N my estimation the rooting section of the Alameda High School far excells any to be found in the other bay cities. This has been accomplished by the efforts of the previous yell, leaders and the hearty support the students have given them. The root- ing this term has not been world-beating, but has been re- markably consistent, and there has always been a great deal of pep. ; The fellows deserve a great deal of credit for the way they turned out and supported the Baseball team in its few games played here. Not only did they support the team, but man- aged to drown their opponents’ rooting section. About the middle of the term a yell contest was organized under the auspices’ of the “Star and Key Society,” to arouse some much needed enthusiasm. From the number of yells submitted, the committee was able to obtain three of the best yells the school has ever had. The benefit of the contest was immediately felt. The rooters took an interest in the new yells and more spirit was shown than had been expected. With the interest always attendant on the football season and a number of inspiring new yells, there should be developed next term one of the best rooting sections any high school has ever known.

To him should be given the credit of turning out such a victorious team. The season was a long, hard one and luck was against the boys in a few instances. They did not win the number of games that their playing should have given them. The team showed fine spirit throughout, working hard the entire season. The fighting spirit under adverse conditions was well shown in the final game with Belmont, which developed into the crowning victory of the term. Outlook for 1913. The football outlook for the fall term of 1913 is beginning to brighten. The graduation of a number of veterans last term left the team badly crippled. With the addition of the entering material to the squad of last year, matters have be- come more promising. The few veterans that are left are Charlie Clapp, “Grub” Higgins, and Bud Larkin. The members of the old squad that look good for next fall are: Dean Perkins, “Billy” Brew- er, George Meyers, Tom Birbeck, Charlie Mehan, and Zacher Dickinson. The new men whom we hope to see on the field include “Don” Pearson, “Len” Hollywood, Sam Hardin, “Fat” Miles, Lynne Pearson, Hack Dexter, White-hope McCarthy, and George Palmer. Backed by the splendid spirit shown last year, and under the able coaching of some man like “Louie” Watts, there is no reason why Alameda should not take rank among the fore- most Rugby teams of the state. CHARLES TILDEN, Captain, 1913. OUR TRACK TEAM. Andy Hardin, our old stand-by, acquitted himself well, as usual, in the Bay Counties track meet. He copped first in the high jump with a leap of 5 feet 7 inches; second in the broad, with a jump of 20 feet 10 inches. “Andy” is some consistent worker and may be looked upon as a model by other aspiring candidates. Always in condition, full of fighting spirit and pep, “Andy” is an important factor in all track meets. He has his four star A now, but sad to say we lose him by graduation. Among others out were Perkins, Von Schmidt, Ganzer, Creagh, Etter, Barnes, Clapp, Volberg, O’Connell, Corry and last, but not least, “Miler” Goldbaum. A few words apropos of this stellar performer might be in order. He certainly showed rare form and the intercollegiate cinder-path artists are waiting with dread the time he enters college. Look out for your laurels, oh ye athletes! He also supplied the dire need of a steam roller. O receive the four-star A is the highest honor that an ath- lete of Alameda High can attain. In order to get this he must have played four seasons on some team, or have par- ticipated in winning events for four years. The man winning this honor is worthy of all the credit and praise given him, for it shows that he has worked for four years to give his school a prominence in school athletics. Byron Paul, the A. H. S. quarterback on the ’03, ’04, ’05, ’06 teams, and captain in his last year, was the first on whom this honor was bestowed. Edward Macauly, the track man, at one time holding the coast records for both the 220 and 440 yard dashes, was the next in line. He won his event, the 440, four years in suc- cession. Emil Bruzzone, another football man, was also awarded a four-star A. He played on the championship team of 1908, and captained the team in 1909. Charles Kiser was the next who received this honor. Charles, however, won it both for baseball and football, and is the only BS shupsiazs sie athlete that has ever accomplished this. football team, and played on the 1909 baseball team that de- feated Cogswell for t he A. A. L. championship. He captained the 1908 Following Charles came Edwin Anthony. He received his four-star A after playing on the football team four years, dur- ing which time three championships were gained. Charles Murphy received his four-star A by playing on ihe 1908, 1909, 1910, IQII baseball teams. He captained the team in IgI0. Edwin Seagrave, another baseball player, received this em- blem after playing four years on the baseball team. Domingo Bruzzone was the next to capture the four-star A. He played on the 1909, 1910, 1911, 1912 teams. Andrew Hardin, the latest member of the four-star A society, won his stars through track. Besides Macauly, “Andy” is the only track athlete that has acquired a four-star A. “Andy” is also a good football player, and during the Rugby season he devotes his time to that game. - ) , © : PATROL!

LOUIS SCHEELINE. 406 Fourteenth Street OAKLAND The College Tailor RS Se aN Largest and Most Complete Line of Novelties for Young Men Ever Displayed Here The Question Box CORRESPONDENCE EDITOR has been appoint- ed to take charge of this ever-popular department. Owing to the rush of work it has been impossible to answer all of the numerous questions submitted. Those published were questions which were consid- ered of the greatest possible educational value. Dear Editor:—Who is the king of Alameda High School at present? This question is very hard to determine. Hauch, until very recently, certainly ruled with despotic sway, but upon looking carefully into the matter we have found that Hoffman has usurped the throne. At a recent date Hauch formally acknowledged Hoffman’s supremacy and bestowed his crown on him. Mr. Editor:—Why are High Junior dances always rags? After great study and coéperation with such authorities as Dr. Thompson and Mr. Daniels, we have decided that the main reason is the extreme youth of the High Juniors. Ata certain age it is impossible for youths to draw a line between perfectly proper dances and the freer ones to which they are accustomed. Time will surely cure this, however, and when they become High Seniors they will give a ball which will sur- prise every one. Correspondence Department of the Acorn :—Is it true that the High Senior girls are going back to “the simple life”? Not back to the “simple life,” exactly. There have been many different rumors concerning the coming graduation. The real idea of the girls was to graduate disguised as sailors, in middy blouses, and with the stage decorated as the deck of a ship. The effect would be startling. The boys would prob- ably be disguised as deck hands. Mr. Editor :—Why did Ed. Joseph leave school? “Leave” is not quite the right word to use here. Some- thing stronger would be preferable. The question is not, “Why did he leave school,” but how did he get back again? To the Editor:—Why are our alumni so interested in their Alma Mater? There are various occasions which bring forth their enthusiasm. It is doubtful if, without such drawing cards as callings from the president, fights (flag and otherwise), crap- games, etc., they would still show their interest. To.the Correspondence Editor :—TIs it true that the Board of Education, having become aware of the physical strain on the students walking to and from High School, have decided to furnish. motor transportation? There have been various rumors in regard to the use to which the motor car, about to be won in the “Examiner Con- test,” will be put, when, purchased by the Board of Education. s a matter of fact, it has been almost definitely decided to turn it over to Dr. Thompson and the Faculty to take the place of their present auto, furnished by Mr. Phelps, which they are rapidly outgrowing. Dear Editor:—Are new suits furnished to all Acorn Man- agers? It has always been one of the customs of the school in the past. It will be interesting to see what the present man- ager will do. We sincerely hope that he will set a new prece- dent. To the Correspondence Editor :—What is the purpose of the massive table at the end of the study hall? It has been placed there purposely by a new organiza- tion, very prominent in school life, commonly known as the “Knights of the Oblong Table”. Much to the joy of the present administration, they always congregate on the days set for student meetings. Mr. Editor:—Did I see Miss Garretson wearing a Bulgarian blouse? Impossible! Impossible!

Although there is questionable language used in these piays, if the characters are portrayed by men of highest moral standing, there can be no objection. But when, as in certain recent plays, the parts are acted by such questionable charac- ters as H-gg-ns, J-s-ph, Kr-s-i, G-ldb-m, B-t-s, and especially Br-n-, a question might arise as to their merit. Numerous other queries will be answered in a subse- quent issue. Ken Lynch—You sassed a Senior, you say? What did he do? Sherman Asche—He ran. Ken Lynch—What! The Senior ran?

I hope she’ll make good, sir. She’ll be in, right away.” Mr. Busyman turned from his desk to receive the new applicant and meanwhile considered the many applicants that had appeared. Miss A. could not read her notes. Miss B. was slow in taking dictation. Miss C. typewrote with an over-abundance of errors. And so it went from one to the other. Would this new applicant repeat the dismal story? What was the trouble with the young women? Was it their training? Would not better education, better teaching solve the problem? THE ANSWER:— Better education means better fitness for a position. To give you the very best training I accept only a limited number of students—no more than I can properly edu- cate with the excellent assistance I have. And this small number of students is grouped into small instruction groups—a handful in each. That means better learning, better teaching, plenty of opportunity to ask questions, to receive immediate help.

It contains but three leaves, and is made up of a poem, a story, a few interesting articles, editorials, local and high school notes, and the ever present “ads.” The paper bears the inscription, “Alameda, January 6.1890. Vol. I, No. 1.’ The heading is “The Acorn,” in large ee black letters, and beneath these let etters appears the mott ‘Tall oaks from little acorns grow.” So this was the modest beginning of our paper! How true has that well known proverb used by the first “Acorn” as a motto proved in this case. Our oak of course has not yet reached its full growth, but we must remember that oaks are not like mushrooms. A comparison of this number with pre- vious issues of the “Acorn” will indicate that the growth of our paper, though not rapid, is substantial, like that of the 1 sturdy oak, and is in accordance with the steady growth of our (o) The “Star and Key” Story Contest.

There were also many other splendid stories handed in, but lack of space prevented us from using them. This brings out the fact that writing for the AcorN has become a custom. It is certainly a good custom, and we take this oppor tunity to thank the “Star and Key” for doing much toward starting it The School Library. rary has come to be one of the most important in the school.

A corps of seventeen students is receiving instruction in library methods and is engaged in cataloguing and numbering the books, ac cording to the Cutter and Dewey system.

From the beginning it has grown stead ily, until now, with an enrollment of nearly a hun- dred taking a strictly commercial course, the matter of provid- ing room for further expansion becomes a vital question. The , ] number of students engag ed in work of a purely commercéa! g nature by no means represents ll who take advantage of the 1 { courses offered in this field, for students from every department of the school are com‘ng in rapidly increasing numbers to secure instruction in some branch of commercial work. The subjects treated cover a wide range of interest, and in clude not only Stenography, Typewriting, Commerc?al Arith- metic, Bookkeeping and Penmansh’p, but also Commercial Law and Civics, Office Practice, Business Correspondence and Com- mercial Geography. For the commercial student these are supplemented by courses in the cultural departments of in- struction, work in English and in foreign languages being em- phasized particularly, for it is the aim of the high school to provide those of its pupils who are preparing for business life with a broader and more complete working basis than. does the average business college. That numbers of students have gone out from this depart- ment to fill positions of responsibility in the world of business, goes to prove its efficiency. To secure this efficiency, no ex- pense has been spared, inasmuch as the equipment has been increased from a single mimeograph at the beginning, to a multigraph, a Burrough’s Adding Machine, a rotary mimeo- graph, and twenty-two typewriters representing two of the best makes, to which a dictophone is to be added within a short time. Students are called upon to assist in the work of the Prin- cipal’s office, thus being given actual business practice. Fre- quently, also, a call is made by the Superintendent of Schools for expert stenographers and typists. The large amount of work that is done in this way for these two administrative offices testifies to the effectiveness of the Commercial Depart- ment as a field of practical experience for the student, and moreover to its real worth to the community.
