THE EXPOSITION Q HE educational and rc arcatixe possibi ities o' tie ,Q Panama-Pacific International Exposition are admitted 'ilr 4 Q .L e R ' l f l 65,2 . , 215295. by all. Two reasons, and two reasons onlv, should ' , . . ' Y Qfrncd keep students from availing themselves of the extraor- dinary opportunity-lack of funds and lack of time. Realizing the educational benefits of the Exposition, the directors have made a most generous offer to the schools of the State. Groups of twenty or more, when accompanied by a teacher during school hours, are admitted for the nominal fee of five cents each on school days. The editors of the "Acorn" earnestly urge the school authorities to arrange that the pupils may reap the advantage of the offer. No triding detail of ar- rangement, refusal of a teacher to permit absence from a class. or petty inconvenience, should prevent the pupils from ex- periencing the inspiration of this exposition of the best in the world. XYays of doing things are always so easy if one has the will to do. And so the "Acorn" in this, its Exposition number, petitions the school authorities to arrange a series of trips for classes devoted to the study of special subjects, to arrange a school day for all of us, to arrange that those of us who suhfer from lack of funds and lack of time shall not be cheated out of the benefit of California's proudest achieve- ment-the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. COMPULSORY STUDENT DUES. 'E'f'f-TOUGH the question of compulsory student dues 96 Q is entirely new to the students of this school, it is fb D very important for the future of school activities and MQLJQ, should not be put aside without careful consideration. The payment of student dues has gradually been growing less and less, until a new system of financing school activi- ties is absolutely necessary, not only to improve the financial condition but to establish uniformity throughout the school. The student body is organized on sound democratic prin- ciples, but if only one-half of the school pays its dues, how can it remain a democratic organization or prosper? Each student has the privilege of taking part in athletics and other school activities. Wfhy does not each student pay his or her share in the upkeep of these various interests? There is not a student in the whole school who is not proud of a winning baseball or football team. But to whom does it belong? Certainly not to those who do not help in its upkeep. Many boys and girls have gone through school without ever attending a student meeting, ball game or taken part in any of the various school activities. lt may be their na- ture, or possibly that their spare time is occupied by more serious and necessary things. However, if these students were all members of the Associated Student Body, and thus supporting school activities financially, we think it is safe to say that the personal support of the majority of these stu- dents would soon follow. Compulsory dues were mentioned some years ago when the school was in a similar condition, but the suggestion was turned down chiefly because it seemed to conflict with the idea of a free institution. However, other high schools around the-bay, notably the Oakland schools, have made stu- dent dues compulsory and with great success, both financially and in accordance with the spirit of students. The Oakland Board of Education authorized the students to make com- pulsory assessments of fifty cents a term. The collecting of the dues was placed in the hands of the class teachers. A date is set near the beginning of the term when all dues should be paid. After this date, all dclinquents are inter- viewed by the principal as to whether the failure to pay dues Page I3 is on account of necessity or mere lack of school spirit. Stu- dents who find it impossible to procure money for their dues are of course excused from paying them, but those who can pay but will not are compelled to do so. When this question of compulsory dues arose at the Uni- versity of California, the committee investigating the mat- ter decided that the least discriminating method was to have all dues paid by a certain date, After this date, students sub- mitting their cases to an appointed committee would have their money refunded if it was decided that the case war- ranted it. After minor details have been altered to fit the conditions of this school, we believe that this system of compulsory dues ivill solve the question of financing school activities and will be entirely acceptable to fair-minded students, be democratic, and have a healthful result in stimulating school life, activi- ties and spirit. WHAT DISTRACTIONS ARE DETRIMENTAL T'O GOOD WORK AT SCHOOL AND WHAT ARE NOT? Q"'15"9 li lll2l,l EVE this should be a question of vital im- 9 E 5,3 portance to every student in the Alameda High Q if 'C School. GJf.ta,.ck9 lf the distraction is the product of long hours of preparation, and the material gain derived from it does not exceed the losses incurred, it is decidedly detrimental to good xvorlc and character. lfxhibits are one of the worst evils that the student has to endure. These exhibits are never truthful examples of what is actually accomplished in the school. The teachers and students begin preparing for them one or possibly two months ahead of the date set. Mechanical drawing suddenly becomes a requirement for all courses from English to Botany, and a pretty talent in the use of water colors becomes an asset in llistory and tleometry. Charts become vogue. The rise and l':1:5e I4 fall of the fortunes of Antonio in 'lThe Merchant of Venice" is plotted alongside of "The Rise and Fall of japanese lmmi- gration into California," done by an Algebra class. The pupils are tired by the sudden accumulation of work, some of which is left undone Qgenerally the regular workj. The teachers are overrushed. Fond parents come to see what their offspring and their offspring's immediate friends have doneg the parents are interested in the personal side of the work, but otherwise indifferent. Surely some better method of bringing the school and parents together could be found. lfVe sincerely hope that the coming exhibit may be the last, for exhibits are certainly detrimental distractions. The next evil distraction brought to our notice is vaude- ville shows of poor quality for the purpose of earning neces- sary money. The end is a good one, but better means could lple found. VVe respectfully suggest compulsory student ues. Athletics, when carried to extremes, are bad and usually result in physical depletion, followed by lack of study and failure in school work. We hope some will find this out. Athletics to the right amount are decidedly benehcial. Vtfe hope more will find this out. Dances and evening affairs in general are not harmful, pro- vided they do not come too often or involve an infinite amount of preparatory and subsequent talking. Beneficial distractions are equally numerous, Lectures on pertinent questions are of great value to students. CO1-1- certs, if the programs are well chosen, are interestino' amus- ing, harmless and educational. Theatrical performaiges and operas are good if lack of study and morning sleepiness are not caused thereby. Gardening, photography, collecting any- thing from stamps to Italian pottery, walkinv tl-ips, Church societies, carpentry are all thoroughly re-creitinff and leave a result in character and attainment. 6 NVe believe, however, that exerci to the 'fmovies" and queening for everyday use se of any sort is superior "OU SONT LES NIEGES D,ANTAN"? HE EDITORS of the Acorn, being in a reminiscent ef and questioning mood, are also disposed, like Silas g-,Bbw Vlfegg, Hto drop into poetry." The line from an-old QAM-9 time French poet which has been bothering them might be translated, "lNhere are the roseate enthusiasms of yester-year?" Wfhat has become of all the clubs started so briskly, living so fitfully, dying so dead? The Astronomy Club, once num- bering thirty and now in the senility of threeg the series of evening lectures to be given by our Facultyg the History Club for training in historical researchg the several Debat- ing Societiesg the Wfalking Club for the exploration of sur- rounding countryg the Camera Club for the study of artistic photography, the Boys' Singing Society which sang with huge enjoyment for six weeks? One is tempeted to add the Tennis Club, the School Orchestra and the Military. The unthinking might question, "VVhy were such clubs started if they were not to be permanent ?" The editor's an- swer that change is a condition of growth, that new inter- ests supplant the old, that while each of the activities men- tioned had its justification, the appeal could not be perma- nent as recreation. So the editors quote, "After life's iitful fever they sleep well." FOR PARENTS ONLY QMNN S LONG as American cities adhere to a system of ffg 2 government by amateurs, and at least twenty-five S25 'lg cents out of every dollar is thereby wasted, the ques- HNOQX tion of moment in each community will always be how to keep the ever-0'rowinO' tax rate down and still provide the improvements their progifess will from time to time dic- tate. Alameda is rimaril a home cit . One of the chief P Y Y requisitions of such a community is an efficient school sys- tem. This can not be obtained without well-built, modern schools any more than it can without a faculty of strong per- sonality. If the omniscient taxpayer would only see farther than his immediate good, he would realize that a school system of high caliber would attract new residents in such numbers that values would riseg instead of the-seemingly costly ex- pense they would be an ultimate source of profit. X-Ve dislike to put such a sacred matter on so sordid a basis, but for those who think in terms of money only this argument should be unanswerable. Wfe hope that before this issue is in the hands of our read- ers the voters of Alameda will have voted the bonds so much needed by all schools. SCHOOL LUNCHES AND THE NEED OF A LUNCH ROOM HE question of school lunches and the need of a lunch of room for the use of the students of the Alameda ga WEN High School who bring their lunches are two prob- QAHQQ lems which should be in the mind of each student. Perhaps we fortunate ones, who live near enough to the school to go home during the noon hour, have not yet acquainted ourselves with the conditions our fellow-students who remain here at noon must contend with. At present, the lunch bringers have practically no con- veniences whatever. On pleasant days, the girls carry chairs out on the cement walk near the back steps and this serves as their lunch room. ,In the summer, when "Old Sol's" rays be- come unbearable, the lunch room is moved to a more shady spot under the spreading acacia tree. ln fall, when the rainy weather comes and it grows too cold to remain in the open, the girls remove to what we all know as the "lunch room," Page I5 which is in the basement. This, in reality, is no more a lunch room than it is a class room or a dressing room, for classes are held here, and it is also used as a "gym" dressing room. ln this room are a gas plate and a few necessary articles, such as cups, saucers, knives, forks, spoons and a tea kettle. 'these articles are very essential, for, to quote Miss Rosenthal: "tiirIs should always have something nourishing for lunch. Students should carry lunch boxes, for these enable them to carry a cup of pudding or some nourishing drink, such as milk or chocolate." lint a lunch room should be a lunch room only, and not a class room and a dressing room combined in one. ln this scientilic age, people are beginning to realize the im- portancc of cleanliness and anyone can readily see that our "lunch room" would not come up to the high standards of the people who have made careful studies of such questions. We also are realizing the value of nourishing lunches and what effect they have on the minds of pupils. XYorsc and more of it, is the boys' side of the matter. Of course, in warm weather they also sit out of doors, but in rainy weather they must remain in the basement. Un a cold, rainy day, the basement of our school is anything but warm and cheerful. ln this part of the building bicycles are kept, and on days when it is raining phy sical training classes are held here, so there must necessarily be floating about in the atmosphere they best thrive in many families of mic1'obes. The only way that the boys can have anything hot to eat, if they bring their lunches, is to carry a thermos bottle, which a lew do. XYe need a good many improvements -for our school, but the one that would be most benelicial for the students, and in the end for the school itself, would be the addition of a new lunch room where both girls and boys could eat with some comfort. BOOKS. Xot so many years ago the books at the disposal of the l'age IU middle-class person were the llible, "Pilgrims l'rogress," a set of Shakespeare perhaps, McGuffey's school readers, and one or two moral novels. Volumes of didactic poetry were quite commonly read and presented as gift books, and "Pride and Prejudice" adorned many parlor tables, being usually placed next to the plush album and the large shell brought from China. Today the fortunate youth of Alameda has at his disposal an extensive collection of books in the l'ublic l.ibi-ary, and here in our school library, many of the best books, the books worth reading. But how is the appreciation of the average student shown? He loses, defaces and carelessly handles books which have been purchased so that students may have access to volumes which are useful and enlightening. ls this the way to show appreciation-to show that we realize the great boon which scholars of this and former decades have given us? , To us a book is something more than mere paper and words -it is the living soul of the author. lnto his work each writer has put his own personality-and the best that is in him. A book, like a piece of sculpture, or a melody. shaped from the living thought of the author, may exist long after the mind that created it has ceased to labor. lt is an embalmed mind. Let us show veneration for the noble dead, the worthy living, by treating books as memorials. An American author, good old XfVashington Irving, has worthily said of the friendship of books: "The scholar only knows how dear these silent yet eloquent companions of pure thoughts and innocent hours beggme in the season of adversity. NVhen all that is wordly turns to dross these only retain their steady value. Wlligu friends grow cold and the converse of intimates languishes into vapid civility and commonplace, these only continue the ulmltemd countenance of happy days, and cheer us with that true friend- ship which never deceived hope nor deserted sorrow " Sv , W ., Vw K .x X 1 ,A..N It ' N , f' as ?': W XF? . , 9 .Z Sf!

A Mme . .XVING selected a window-seat of the big city-bound train, D , cw the little school girl proceeded to examine the occupant of Q r-- 2 the opposite seat with interest. She did not doubt that her Q-Jn companion was f'queer." The worn grey dress belonged to a style of years ago, so did the old-fashioned handbag and the quaint hlack velvet bonnet. But it was the sad, tired face beneath the white curls that made the little school girl lean forward and say impulsiyely: "lt's zt nice day, isn't it? Are you going to the Fair?" The Queer Little Lady nodded brightly and some of the lone- some look seemed to leave her face. "It's my first time," she re- plied, "hut l guess you've been there before, havenit you P" "t lh, yes. ever so many times. Once you get started, you go and go. Why, you'll he going every week, yourself, after this." The Queer Little Lady shook her head. "This is the only timef' she said, Then she looked at her companion half shyly and added: "Would you like to know why?" There was an eager longing in the old voice. a desire to tell someone, anyone. "Yes, please," answered the child. "l dont know what l'd do if I had to stay here much longer," began the Queer Little Lady. "I like your California, but it's big :md l'ye been so lonesome.

So, you see, I got to thinking, and I says, 'I"haps I might make something for your great Fair up there in the city. It's so big, surely there'd be one little prize for me and it might help to start me towards home' I'The more I thought about it the better I liked the idea, and so I started to hunt up silks and colored threads and things.

The little SCllOOl'g11'l only nodded. Fascinated, she watched the Queer Little Lady s face, and with the strange intuition of child- hood she understood. 1 "I decided it was going to be tap'stry.

Then I wrote and told them they could sell it for me if they wanted to. I guess it was bold of me, but I was well nigh desperate. I waited for ever so long, but I didn't hear anything from them, so this morning I decided I'd COIUC up to the city and find out all about it.'J There was a strange tugging at the little school girlts heart when the Queer Little Lady had iinished. "I do hope you get the prize," she said. "I-I," but there was nothing more to say. She wanted to gather the pathetic little figure up in her arms and comfort her- to place her on a train and send her whirling back to her home in far-away Maine. Instead, she smiled reassuringly as she rose from her seat. 'fThis is my station, I'll have to say good-bye. I wish you just the very best of luck." The Queer Little Lady watched her fellow passenger until she had disappeared from view. Then, leaning back, she closed her eyes and endeavored to keep the lonesome feeling from returning. The drowsy motion of the train had almost sent her to sleep wfhen the long line of cars finally puffed into the city depot. The finding of a street car, the long ride to the Exposition and her entrance through the wired gate were all the cause of much panic and wonder to the Queer Little Lady. Through that restless, shifting throng of pleasure-seekers she wandered. Laughing girls swept past her, then a dapper college youth with his fiaming tie, now a white turbaned Moslem and pres- ently a sleek Chinese. She heard the cries of fretful children mingled with the tones of weary tourists. She saw great buildings that seemed like story book palaces, fountains that gleamed and sparkled in the sunlight, and statues-but the Queer Little Lady hurried onward. 1 She never knew how she found her way among that maze of courts and avenues. Vaguely she recalled a man in uniform who had given her quick directions. Somehow she remembered them and trudged patiently on and on. Sometimes she caught her breath with a queer sinking feeling and told herself that it was all very foolish and useless. The crowd bore her along with them into the building and it re- quired but a moment's inquiry to find the section she was search- ing for. Oh, there they were-laces, embroideries, and, best of all, beautiful tapestries. Carefully she walked about and eagerly she inspected each one. Wfhy, where was hers? fvVasn't there any room among all these lovely pieces for her work? Surely there must be a mistake. Anxiously she approached an attendant. "Are these the only tap'stries P" she asked in a choking voice. The woman smiled good-naturedly, HAH exceptithat one over there in the corner. That won the first prize. VVe sold it for five hundred dollars. Notihed the exhibitor this morning, myself," she called as she saw her questioner turning away. The Queer Little Lady did not hear. Too proud lest anyone should see her grief and disappointment, with eyes blurred with tears she walked slowly away. Wfhy was it always like that? VVhy -the Queer Little Lady's hand touched something soft and silky. t'And what are you doing here Fl' she quavered. Then for a moment, while her heart thumped wildly and her hands grew cold and moist, she stood very still. Before her was her tapestry that she had worked herself, that she had believed in, that had been awarded the first prize. Beneath the printed letters on the white placard someone had written: "Sold, five hundred dollars." The Queer Little Lady's eyes grew dim. Beyond the wooden frame she saw the white walls of a New England cottage, faint glimpses of apple blossoms and the sweet scent of clover. With a little cry she tottered forward and almost timidly placed her frail hand on the gay threads of the tapestry. Caressingly she lingered over each figure and whispered to herself, f'Home, home again, but you know I canft give you up." A curious spectator halted and stared at the little figure in the corner. I-Iastily she turned and with her head held high walked towards the door. For an instant she paused, and with such a look of sweet wistfulness and longing that the stranger never forgot it, the Queer Little Lady was gone. ELINOR MALIC.

C"'B"9 l'llEN Captain Juan Bautista left Monterey- in 1773 in 9 Q3 search for the newly-discovered bay of Saint Francis, Q it 'C he took with him old Palon to chronicle his adventures. GJ,.to..fL9 l,et us read a paragraph from Palonis dairy: "ln the Valley of San Jose, the party coming up by land saw animals which they took for cattle: and supposing they were wild and would scatter the tames ones they were driving, the soldiers made after them and succeeded in killing three, which were so large that a mule could with difficulty carry one, being of the size of an ox and with horns like those of a deer, but so long that their tips were eight feet apart. This was their nrst View of elk. The soldiers made observation that they could not run against the wind by reason of their monstrous antlersf, lt: is certain from the remainder of Palon's quaint recital that he meant the stretches receding south and west from Mission Peak to the marsh lands of his farsought bay. Thus, what became the most historic section of Alameda County received its tirst mention in history. The Mission of Saint Joseph was established under Diego de llorica, ,lime lgtll, 1707, when there was no other spot of civiliza- tion in the Contra Costa. The site was well chosen. It con- nected the adobe hamlet and presidio of San Francisco with the older Mission of Saint Clara. A gaunt pyramidal peak at its back dominated the rolling hills and fixed its location for wan- derers through the forest wilderness. XX'ith that somewhat lmmorons sense of well-being that caused the old monks of Eng- lzmd and France to choose the banks of the best trout streams for Page .30 their monasteries, the shrewd Padres fixed upon the most adapt- able spot for their mission. Running streams, near-by sulphur springs, untouched forests of a thousand years' growth, abundant game, fertile soil, unlimited pasturage, the control of the easiest entrance through the foothills to the great valleys of the interior, all helped to bring about an easeful thrift in the little colony and to make it for a time the most important spot in Northern California. At first, Mission San Jose, like all Spanish missions, was intended as a means for civilizing Indians and to develop the country. Here, under two Franciscan Fathers, they were given moral and religious instruction and training in the simpler indus- tries. The use of clothes, cooking of food, care of stock, building of adobe houses, construction of ditches and flumes, tanning of leather, making of soap, spinning of wool, and weaving of thread were all slowly taught to hundreds of elemental lazy Indians who were either cajoled or threatened into the more ordered life of the mission. VVith Mexican control the fortunes of Mission San Jose reached their height and swift ruin. The friars were with- draw-n and seculars and administrators were given control of religious and financial matters. Tn 1834, 2,3-OO nativgs who Ovvned 24,000 horned cattle were all governed by the little bodv of priests and 'by a score of soldiers 'from the Presidio. The 1-Qgtfaints of civilization and interminglmg with the white race, slight 35 it was, extermmated the Indans. Less than one-third of the original number survived two generations of control by the missionsb As one old author quaintly remarks, 'iff the main object of their conversion was to send their souls to heaven, it is presumed the result was satisfactory." After the Fathers were recalled to Mexico, the Indians scat- tered in the more remote canyons near Niles and Pleasanton, where their squalid descendants still live. There is no real pathos or beauty in the traditions of the mis- sions of California, and no profit in idealizing the native Califor- nian. The work of this mission, at least, seems fruitless, Only a fragment of courtyard enclosure has survived the shocks of earth- quakes, and the glory of its church is now no more. The unnum- bered graves midway between Irvington and Mission San jose are lapsing back to nature. Until recently a few degraded Indians came through the foothills once a year on Good Friday to their old mission church-not to lament like the jews over jerusalem, nor like the Greeks who mourned in deserted temples of Paestum ff-2, .T .ff I over the glories that once were theirs, but to indulge in an odd feast and to "hang Judas." H The region around Mission Peak is even now full of that subtle quality that painters love to call 'llocal color." But its suggestion is not of that early period which sentimentalists idealize. Its character is given by long-voweled Spanish names, by the liquid eyes of silent dark-hued children, by nodding old men who tell of the caravans that passed by and of the great cattle ranges of the days long gone, by walls of crumbling adobe whose gaping but- tresses are almost wreathed by flowers, by convent bells at sun- rise, by strange ceremonials brought by an alien race from the Azores, by the gargoyles stretching from the church tower in far- off kinship with the monster hosts that haunt the roof of Notre Dame, by the drone of clover-laden bees in olive lanes, and by the starpointing peak which changless keeps its watch over different peoples and faiths.

It is therefore a simple duty to those who come after us, that we who were eye-witnesses of what took place, should make an exact record thereof for the benefit of future ages. Par- ticularly Iitting is it also that this history should be written in our own quiet little city since, for all its famed calm and peace, it was fated to be the theatre of a great tragedy. llow vivid in our memories is that nevcr-to-be-forgotten morn- ning of llecemher tg. 14115. Surely no one whose home was in .Xlameda on that day will forget the thrill of excitement and awe that swept over us when the news of what was impending liashed throughout the length of our island city. .-Xn enormous Heet of aerial warships. the great sun flag of Nippon everywhere dis- played, was advancing up the hay toward San Francisco! NYC would have doubted if we could-but which among us, whose view to the south was unbroken, failed even in that first moment ol' amazement to conhrm with his own vision the almost stupefy- ing warning! We who dwelt on the southern shore had but to turn our eyes down the hay. liven then it was almost too much for human credulity, so strange seemed the form of attack, com- ing so utterly without warning. lt is true that our relations with blztpan were known to be somewhat strained, and war had even been mentioned as a possibility in some of the more sen- L I age 3.3 sational newspapers, but that was all. Now came the terrible news and the more terrible fact like lightning from the sky! There had been no word of warning, no declaration of war. The japanese had followed the same plan which they had carried out so successfully in their struggle with Russia. As they had fallen upon Port Arthur without warning, so would they fall upon San Francisco and her sister cities of the bay. First in their path lay the lawns and gardens, the Flower-decked homes of Alameda. People gathered in groups on their porches, on the sidewalks, in the roadways, silent or talking in whispers. XVomen stood white faced with dread, but looking with brave eyes to the south. Some wept, but only when their little children, all unconscious of the doom impending, asked wondering questions, or played in thoughtless innocence about their feet. Everywhere a strained unusual silence reigned. 'lhen shouts, herce and threatening, blending in what speedily became a roar of rage and execration, sounded fr , of the south shore. Amid the clamor there came also to the straining ears of those who listened where as vet thev could not see for themselves, another sound-the whirrinig of countless en om the beaches gines, the hum of innumerable driving fans, the blending of war songs and battle cries of Nippon chanted and shouted by thou- sands of triumphant voices. Men looked at one another-at thggg they loved-shuddered. The enemy was at hglmil Then a strange thing happened. One might have looked for Em attempt at flight, hopeless as such an effort must be. But it was a far different impulse which seemed suddenly to seize all who lis- tened. As with a common thought every group began a move- ment toward the south shore. Thousands gathered within a few moments. They hurried along every street leading to the low-ly- ing bluffs and the smooth beaches beneath. The foes were com- ing-they were indeed already here-and those who might well expect to be their victims were hurrying, white-faced, to meet them at their city's threshold. W' ith that cleverness which has already been apparent in their methods of warfare, the Japanese carefully avoided the natural courses of invasion-the route leading through the Golden Gate, or crossing the San Francisco peninsula from the ocean. They knew that the fortifications of the great harbor and the district round about its ocean gateway might well repel invasion whether aerial or naval. Even under the cover of the darkness, with sentinels and searchlights ever on guard, they could not hope to slip in unnoticed. In the blackness of the night the enormous fleet had flown unnoticed, engines muffled and lights hooded, from the ocean at a point somewhere between Monterey and Half-Moon Bay, and had followed a course northward just Within the Coast Range. In the early morning the vast throng of aerial war craft, phantom-like, monstrous and threatening, loomed over San lose. Apparently those in command did not care to delay progress to- ward the greater prey to the northward. Here and there a bomb was dropped spreading terror as they sped over the half awakened towns. Meanwhile, here in Alameda, every rod of shore from the site of the old oil works to Bay Farm Island had grown black with people, and every eye was turned to the south. Men lifted clenched hands, raging at the sight. Here and there a woman screamed. Over the entire width of the broad south bay the great fleet hid the sky. In solid legions like marching squadrons on parade, rank upon rank of mighty Zeppelins came sweeping on, dark grey, grim and terrible in aspect. The number was enormous- there seemed no end to the mighty column, no limit to its power to instill horror and dread in the beholders. The Sun Flag of Japan lluttered on everp prow, and from the largest of the flying war craft, llared another banner, gaudy with strange insignia, pro- claiming the presence of Satsuma, descendant of the ancient princely line, "Lord High Admiral of the Sky." So perfect were the order and alignment of this division that though the airships seemed to crowd so closely together as every moment to invite disaster, never once was there a sign of confu- sion. In solid mass-grim, threatening, terrible-the mighty craft came on. On either side, above and below the vast array, floated aero- planes, "light riders of the air," darting hither and thither, some- times making long sweeping dashes far from the main squadron, as if to spy out the land and sky, only to return in a few minutes with lightning-like speed to the main body of the fleet. They were like a cloud of playful swallows darting gracefully about the larger and heavier ships. But the swallows of this fateful morn- ing were themselves fierce birds of prey. But if there was amazement and dread at the coming of the in- vaders, there was something more. Ashore in the great city of the Golden Gate, and elsewhere about the bay, there was no lack of action. Mayor Bartlett of Alameda had telephoned the news of what was coming to General Murray in the hrst moment fol- lowing his own warning. Signal guns boomed beyond the bay, at Fort Mason, at the Presidio, on Alcatraz and Angel Island. Smoke poured from the lofty stacks of the cruisers hlaryland and Connecticut, and back and forth about them darted swift-'flying torpedo craft ready for any deadly work. Word came by wireless from the Navy Yard, at Mare Island, from north and south and the farthest east that troops were being crowded upon trains with orderly haste and rushed to our aid. Three days-perhaps half that time-would see our state guarded by half a million men. regulars and volunteers. llut meanwhile our enemies were here! Page 23 'lhe day grew noticeably darker as the great lieet drew nearer, obscuring the sky. The vanguard now overhung the shore, and perhaps in mere wanton malice, perhaps as a hint of what was in the invaders' power to do-a bomb was dropped from a craft Iloating above the Eucinal boat house. lt fell unerringly, struck, exploded, and instantly the building and the pier ceased to be! t Ju the water floated a mass of tangled wreckage. That was all. .Xt the sight came sudden panic. XfVomen screamed, caught their children to them and darted away from the shore. Hus- bands. fathers, brothers, followed behind. A cry arose-'lTo the hills! To the hills! There may be safety there." The crowding thousands swayed back from the bluffs and beaches. Men still shouted in fierce hatred, but even in their rage urged those whom they loved away from the black shadow. And then, in this darkest hour. deliverance came. The man who had for years lived his modest life among our people lives ever before our eyes in the great granite monument in 'Iaekson l'ark, erected to preserve the memory of the greatness of his genius and self-sacrihce. Secluded inventor that he was, per- haps not one in a thousand of those whose enemies he foiled that day knew of his existence until, without word or warning, his light balloon was seen rising above the trees. VVe know now, from the brief note he left, that he had counted-correctly as it proved-on the very insignitieanee of his apparatus to gain access to those against whose might he planned to match his wonderful invention. Also he could not insure the effect of the deadly agency which he proposed to use over a radius of more than a thousand yards. Therefore it was necessary that he should attain as nearly as possible a position in the center of the enemy. - In every way lfate and Fortune favored him. A faint sound of jet-ring laughter came down from the darkened sky as the marin- ers ot' the air noted his approach. Beyond question, they assumed that he could only be messenger with a humble prayer for peace. l 'age 24 They were willing to give him a hearing-the great flagship of Satsuma even moved slightly from her path to intercept the smoothly rising balloon. It seemed but a moment until it reached the level of the fleet. And then a great cry broke from all the nearer war craft. There were keen eyes aboard, and doubtless something was seen which conveyed a' warning. They could not understand, but they in an instant realized that doom swift and terrible was upon them. And they met the knowledge like the warrior sons of the knightly Sa- muri. "Banzai! Banzai! Live Nippon!'! thundered forth in one great defiant cry, echoing over bay and shore. "Banzai! Ban- zai! Nippon forever!" And then the end came. We saw the silent figure in the car of the balloon lift and spread his arms with what seemed a gesture of farewell. There was a Hash of blinding white light that seemed in an instant to envelop balloon and car and all about them. How far the force of that vast, mysterious concussion extended, who can say? If there was azed could not tell a sound of an explosion, we who listened and g I Wfe saw the white light Hash, spread abroad in the sky fade gy f as suddenly and leave vacancy behind! Down through the loiifiei' reaches of the air were hurtling vast masses of wreckage mingled in inconceivable confusion. The destroyer-preserver of his city and his people-had gone from the knowledge of men like the breaking of a bubble. But with him passed al ' 1 , so, in tie same instant of strange, immeasurable destruction all that llllotl t invading fleet. The masses of wreckage thatichoked the sihlafi low.waters of the bay and cumbered the shore tl 1'f bodies of the brave men who had manned the bndf? iniiiliifi Heetfthese only were left to prove to the thousands ofthe Island City that the earlier horror of the mor ' ff 1 been but a dream.

BOODT DOROTHY CUNNINGHAM E, GLENN HART CLASS HISTORY HE CLASS which entered as Freshmen in August, E' 1911, has at last reached the much-sought-for position iN of the High Senior. The Class of june, '15, originally 'Ubi numbered one hundred and six students. But forty- 'ED two are now left to be pronounced "the best class that ever 'raduated U g In September, 1911, the class held its first meeting and the following officers were elected: President, Wfeston Volbergg vice-president, Dorothy Davis, secretary and treasurer, Emil De Vecchio. ln the Low Sophomore year the class selected the following officers: President, Robert Baker: vice-president, Loes Sharp: secretary and treasurer, Neil Laidlaw: class editor, Margaret Temple. The High Sophomore Class met and organized as follows: President, Kenneth Lynch: vice-president, Loes Sharp, sec- retary and treasurer, Clyde Shepardsong class editor, Eliza- beth Frater, class representatives, Grace Bradford and Dean Perkins. The interest shown by the class during its sophomore year in its own affairs and in the larger matters of the school prom- ised well for the future. ln the junior year the class organized, electing: President, W-'eston Volbergg vice-president, Jessie Wfilkesg class repre- sentatives, Margaret Temple and Clyde Shepardson. A class pin, which is a variation from the customary acorn design, was selected and the class believes it the most original and artistic so far produced. The High junior term was a brilliant success. The officers were: President, Irving Cockroft, vice-president, Grace Br-adfordg secretary and treasurer, Clyde Shepardson, class Sdltor, Wfeston Volberg. The class distinguished itself by giving the junior Dance. The dance, which was managed by Carlton Hulin ,was held in the Haight School Auditorium This was artistically decorated in the class colors, red and gold. The dance was enjoyable and everyone declared it a distinct success. In june, '14, the class entered upon its last year, which proved to be the busiest. Realizing it had a great deal to ac- complish, it organized early in the term and chose the follow- ing corps of officers: President, Carlton Huling vice-presi- dent, Margaret Temple: secretary-treasurer, Emil Di Vecchiog class editor, Clyde Shepardson, class representatives, Grace Bradford and Kenneth Lynch. On August 18 the Low Senior girls gave a reception to the girls of the Freshman Class. On the evening of November 3 the class presented "Barbara Prietchief' Much credit is due the coach and the Faculty Committee and to the members of the cast for their excellent work. Clyde Shepardson looked after the finances of the play and the performance ranked among the foremost of the successes of all the Senior plays. On December 21, 1914, the Low Seniors gave the Class of December, iI4, a farewell banquet and dance. The class started upon its last term with the following offi- cers: President, Clyde Shepardson: vice-president, Loreme Remmel, secretary, Olof Snyder: treasurer, Lloyd Wfeich- hart, class editors, Laura Craig and 'William Nash. The class is now planning the details of graduation, to give a vaudeville, and also for the Senior Dance, which it hopes to make a bril- liant success.

After many days, in the midst of the laughter and taunts of his brothers and sisters, the little lark rose, and soaring high into the sky, he gloried in the sunshine and sang aloud for joy. The other larks heard him as they gazed unseeingly from the shadowed nest, They looked at each other and nodded their heads as one of their number said, "How glad we are to be rid of him! He was Such a noisy little fellow and always posing!" But the lark who was attaining his heart's desire sang the more bravely as he rose through the crystalline sunlight, higher and higher, and sons of men he rejoiced at the coming of day.

However, they were more than glad to do this, since his services have been invaluable to the school. Next term all of Mr. Rittlers salary will be paid by the Board of Education.

'l'hrough the interest created by the A. H. S. Debating Club in their regular debates, and the helpful influence of the English llepartment, enough spirit was aroused to warrant Alameda's membership in the lnterscholastic Debating League of California. The Iirst league debate was won from Richmond Union High by default. tlwing to the small number of schools belonging to the league in this county, Alameda was matched against Berkeley for the second debate. Although lilerkeley was the county cham- pion and Alameda had only two men who would debate, the school determined to put forth its best efforts. Iiarly in the term, Alameda contested with Berkeley on the subject: "Resolved, That for the City of San Francisco the Xlunicipal Ownership of those Public Service Corporations which linrnish Transportation is Preferable to that of Private Owner- ship." Coltman Sheppard and Albert Gilliland upheld the affirm- ative for Alameda, while Mr. Frost and Mr. Cherigend repre- Many pronounced the de- sented lierkeley upon the negative. bate one of the best ever held betwen local schools. The verdict of the judges was unanimous, in favor of Alameda. This victory was important, not only because Alameda defeated an old rival, but that she rose to lirst place in the County. This victory over llerlceley put Alameda among the first in Northern California, and therefore the third debate was a simul- taneous contest with Lodi Union High. Earle Payne, Russell Rl.-dcraft. lfoster .Xdams and Ulof Snyder came to the assistance of Sheppard and Gilliland. and competed in a try-out for places lztge oo on the teams. Russell Medcraft received first place, but was unable to debate on account of illness, Olof Snyder taking his place. The debate was held March 5th on the subject: Resolved, "That the Permanent Support of the Monroe Doctrine by the United States is the most Effective Means of Maintaining Inter- national Peace in North and South America." Foster Adams and Coltman Sheppard supported the negative at Lodi, while Snyder and Gilliland defended the afhrmative at home against Miss Gladys Garner and Mr. Charles Devine of Lodi. Alameda was defeated in both places, but it was only a gentle rebuke from old and seasoned veterans who outclassed the Alamedans in the art. Considering the fact that Lodi has over one-fourth of stu- dent enrollment in active debating work, Alameda showed re- markably well, as both debates were won by a narrow margin. The English Department has now included debating as one of the monthly exercises in oral class-work. The recent debates on Thackeray and Dickens, on Poetry and Prose in Junior and Senoir classes have proved that upperclass debaters need onlv the stimulus of rigid exaction and opportunity to become excel- lent in this form of public speaking. Astronomy Club. HE membership of the Astronomy Club 11513 dem-eased Q .since last term, but the few steady members have en- gd Bbq joyed and profited by the meetings. Qztneg Lectures have been attended during the Sgjngstef and a visit was made to the University of California, where the planet Venus was viewed through the eight-inch telescope. This was one of the most interesting trips ever made by the club. A trip to Mt. Tamalpais will be made either this term or next. This term's ofhcers were: N. Wfeeden, presidentg A. K, Aster, secretaryg Ben Benas, treasurerg Miss Hewitt, Carlos Mundt, directors. The meetings are held every Wfednesday night in the Annex. All interested in astronomy are cordially invited to attend the sessions. The Y. M. C. A. Bean Fests. 'N NEW7 activity was introduced into the school this L gg gy term in the form of the Y. M. C. Bean Fest Fen- gj D nant Contest. The Bean Fests are held every KXGBKJ, Wfednesday and Thursday evening from September to May. Fellows under sixteen years of age attend lllednes- day evenings and are divided into clubs without regard to their school. The Thursday evening group is divided into four clubs-Alameda, Fremont, Oakland and Technical. The chief object of the Bean Fests is to draw the fellows to the discussions which are held by the different clubs after supper. The meal, consisting chieliy of beans, is enlivened by school yells. After the discussion, which is generally on some problem of high school life, the boys enjoy the privilege of the swimming tank. At the beginning of this term Alameda was called "the baby club" because it had the smallest representation. Un Febru- ary II twenty fellows purchased a pennant to be given to the advisory class having the largest average per cent of their enrollment present at the meetings until the end of the season. This competition did not help the Wlednesday night group, but raised the Alameda club of the Thursday night group from baby to big brother. This has done much to put Ala- meda on the map. Alamedans are no longer baclcwoodsmen at the Y. M. C. A. Room I2 won the pennant for attendance. The average per- centages of the contest were: Room I2 ..................,.......... ............ 2 2.23 per cent Room 8 ........... ........ I 8.29 per cent Room I3 ........... ........ I 7.62 per cent Room I8 ........... ........ I 5.55 per cent Room 3 ........,.. ......,. I 3.63 per cent Room 7 ........... ........ 6 .26 per cent Annex ............................................................... 4.59 per cent At the beginning of the contest one of the teachers showed his great interest in the Y. M. C. A. meetings by mal 1110 the generous offer of paying for the first meal of every fellow who attended from Alameda High School. ln this way he was host to ninety-six fellows during the contest. Alameda had as many as sixty-two on one evening, but forty-five was about the average. Next term probably no pennant will be awarded for at- tendance. The new life and "pep'i which a fellow gets will be reward enough. Friends really interested in the athletics and the A. H. S. hope that the Alameda club will be the largest when the meetings at the Y. M. C. A. commence in Sep- tember. OLOF E. SNYIDIZR, june, '15, Page Fil The Band . The .Xlameda High School Band is a new addition to the schools activities this term and is an organization which de- serves the full support of students. At the beginning of the term it started out with dying colors, but, owing to lack of support of the Student llody, it was forced to stop practice for about a month. Through the ellorts of Mr. Rittler and President Volberg the musicians have resumed practice and the outlook is good for the band to remain as a permanent organization in the school. In such a school as Alameda a band certainly deserves to succeed, both for the benefit of the boys in the band and the Stdluul itself. -FOSTER MILES, Leader. A. H. S. Branch Bank. "' N ll If X H S Savings System has noxv been in existence ca ' . little oxci a x lt has easily piox ed its e 1 ltr a ' - jear. ' ' ' ' ' fn- gvdbs cieucy in the handling of money matters, clue to the QA cxpcit ioicc of pupils uno take a part in the bar king system. .Xll the grammar schools of the city of Alameda are non' enrolled as depositors. Pupils are sent once every week to each grammar school, where the banking is carried on in the same manner as in the larger banks of any city. The branch bank in the Alameda High School has been re- modeled and noir gives all the appearance of a regular bank- ing establishment. Under the present system the account as begun in the grades is to continue throughout the school career of the child. This account draws interest from the lirst amount deposited, however small. XYhen the child enters his freslimzm year at high school he will Hnd his account on record there, and will be able to continue it at the high school. I':lgc U3 At the high school branch full records are kept of each ehild'S account. The Alameda City School Savings System is held by the California law to be a branch of the local bank. Therefore, the law holds the local bank absolutely liable for all money deposited through the school system. Each of our local banks has received written notices from Bank Superintendent Wil- liams to this effect. The manager of the savings system, head ofthe High School Commercial Department, is under bonds, as is also his principal student assistant. The system calls for three separate accounts with each pupil depositing: Q15 His own folder or bank book, C2j the account kept at the principals ofhce in the grammar schoolsg C31 the account kept at the high school branches, and in addition the balances and filed statements at the local savings banks, which must correspond and reconcile with records kept at the grammar and high school. The authorities of each of the local savings bank are in touch with all records at the grammar school and high school. During vacation all accounts and records are left at the re- spective banks, where continued deposits or withdrawals may be made. All the important machines used in the larger banks are installed, such as the Burroughs adding machine, ROYHI type- writer, Edison dictaphone and the Marchant calculating ma- chine. The pupils of the banking system are gmc-ht the use of these devices. Wlhen the graduates go into the business world and have an occasion to use one, they will be familiar with the machines commonl found i l -0 Y 11 aige concerns. The banking system teaches a pupil to be efficient trust- 7 Worthy, careful, Well adapted to handling sums of money and K I to have confidence in himself. On May Io, IQI5, the A. H. S. Savings System had Credited to its account over 34,700 A total of 35,000 is expected to be reached before the end of the term, and as school will be in session three weeks longer it seems very probable that this mark will be reached. The officers of the bank sincerely hope that all future classes will uphold the same regularity of de- positing as classes heretofore. The banking force consists of the following members: Edmund Horwinski, cashier: Elbridge Russell, manager of grammar school accountsg Earle jones, Rudolph Altona and Neil Greene, bookkeepersg john Larkin, stenographer. Many other pupils are also entitled to mention, especially those handling grammar school accounts. Mr. Evans, director of the commercial department, deserves honorable mention as the founder and manager of the banking system. ln the near future, if the present enthusiastic support con- tinues, the A. H. S. Savings System will be the most talked of high school banking system in California, if not in the United States. The bank wants you to help make it so.

That partic- SG 3 ular issue is said by many to be the "best 'Acorn' ever." Pau? XX'e feel that we can do no better than to copy its Ex- change Department, although the last issue went back to the old way of dealing with exchanges. Iformerly a small paragraph has lJGC11 devoted to each paper received. Comments of a diplomatic and conservative nature were made concerning the technical side of the book. This had no interest for the average student. We feel that the most just way ol- commenting on school papers is by sending personal notes to each editor thanking him for the copy received and giving whatever comments we feel are deserved. The lixchange llepartments of school papers are generally exceedingly uninteresting to anyone but an editor. The pur- pose of :tu lixehzmge Department is supposedly to aid other editors in their work. The remarks of the exchange editors are nearly always stereotyped, since they cannot express them- selves freely in at publication such as this. There is certainly great room for improvement in nearly all high school papers. We believe that much can be gained from the exchanges by honest criticism, and we welcome personal letters of comment. lligh school papers, put out by editors who serve for one term only, of necessity suffer from lack of experience on the eclitor's part. ln a paper such as this, where the faculty has tleeirlecl that it is unwise to mention the names of the members ol' that august body in any of the reading matter, there cannot llage 68 be any true expression of student opinion. This may be con- sidered by some to be a fault in the paper itself. Such things as this cannot be mentioned with true frankness in the ,col- umns of a school paper, and can only be truthfully commented upon in a personal letter.

We, QU week of March. Heavy rains occurred during the early part of the season, and in addition to this drawback our home grounds at Lincoln Park were torn up for repairs. Twenty-four games were scheduled by Manager Etter, but only eleven of these games were played. However, in spite ol' everytliing our team came through by winning a majority of games. "Hack" Dexter was elected captain at the close of last sem- ester and was the only veteran of last year's team to be on deck at the first turnout. As a whole, the team was made up of the fellows who played on the second team and in the interroom league of last season. Of these, Tom Birbeek, llart, llorwinski, Shepardson and johnny Larkin showed up well. The freshman class was represented by jack Birbeck and "Shrimp" Caya, otherwise known as the long and short of the team. llenediekson, a substitute of the IQI4 team, held down the shortstop position for most of the season. l'Chiefl' lle l.a Mater came out in uniform about the middle of April, Page 74 1 making the second veteran on the team. Edinger, a recruit from Santa Clara, proved to be the star of the infield and starred with the bat during' the first half of the season. A The A. C. A. L. brought forth a great deal of spirit on the part of the local fans, for our team ranks vvell up with the leaders, having an average of 5-Oo, with two wins and an equal number of loses. The league is not over as yet and We still have two more games to play and a good chance to bring home the bacon. "Red', Gay, member of the Igog-Io-11 teams, coached the boys in the fine points of the game during the lirst part of the season, while Otto Rittler was busy with basketball and other sports. Mr. Rittler took charge of the team in April and rounded the team into The scores of the g form. ames played to date are: Alameda High 11, St. Ignatius 3. Alameda High I2, Mt. Tamalpais 2.

M7 ff! . , vw HAROLD DEXTER Captain ,SL 3 Alameda 7, San jose 3. .Xpril io Captain Dexter's aggregation of baseball tossers journeyed down to San jose and succeeded in taking the Gar- den City nine into camp 7 to 3 in one of the best exhibitions of the national pastime seen in high school baseball circles for some time. The feature of the game came in the ninth inning, when the score was 4 to 3 in our favor. Wfith one down, 'Horvvinski singled, advanced to second on T. Birbeck's long Hy to left, and reached third on Dexter's single. Edinger was next at bat and after letting "Hack" go down to second picked out a fat one and drove the ball clean over the center f1elder's head for a home run. This made the final score 7 to 3, as San lose failed to score in their half of the inning. Tom Birbeck also got a four-bag swat in the eighth frame by smashing the ball over the center field fence, a feat seldom accomplished by high school players. l'anll pitched a beautiful game for the losers, despite the fact that his team came out on the short end of the score. He sent sixteen of our hopes to the bench by the "big three" route. Tom .llirbeck started the game for Alameda, but was given the hook in the Hfth, after San Jose had scored three runs and had two men on the bags. Captain Dexter succeeded him, and pulled off the old hero stunt by striking the next three men ont. lfdinger and Tom lglirbeck were the batting stars of the game. "Scib" got a home run, two doubles and a single out of tive times at the bat, while Tom got three safeties out of live, one of which was a homer. Alameda 2, Berkeley 13. Un Tlinrsday, April 29, Alameda was defeated in a one-sided game by lierkeley on U. C. Held by a score of I3 to 2. The de- feat came as a big surprise, since earlier in the season Berke- ley had gone down before Alameda to the tune of I4 to 3. This in itself showed that the boys must have been out of lorm. l'agc 76 The feature of the game was the pitching of McCord, who held Alameda's hopes down to three hits. On the other hand, our pitchers were batted to every corner of the field by the Berkeley sluggers. "Scrub" jack Birbeck started the game for Alameda and lasted but one inning, in which he was touched for three hits and three runs. He was relieved by "Cap" Dexter, who was also given a lively reception. 'tHack" had had but two days' rest since he pitched against Oakland and was out of form. However, if he had been supported by the team, the story would have been a different one. The most slaughter came in the third, when the Berkeleyites gathered seven hits, which, together with a couple of errors contributed by Benedickson and "Shrimp" Caya, netted the college town boys seven runs. Although there were IQ hits chalked up by Berkeley, none of them were long drives, the majority of them being lucky Texas leaguers. The score: ALAMEDA- BERKELEY ab I h P0 fl 5 ab r . a.. e.

Defeat at the hands of Oakland Technical School was the result of ,'Xl2Llll6Cl2liS second league game, which was played at llay Yiew l'ark, April 22. - L'p to the last of the fourth inning the game looked as though it was going to be a pitchers' battle. "Chief" De La Mater was in the box for Alameda, while McClure twirled for Tech. lidinger had scored a home run in the second and 'liorgesan tied the score for the Oakland boys in the third by poling out a three-bagger to right and coming home when one of "Chief's" low ones hit the plate and bounded over Shepard- son's head. 'lihree bingles in succession and ragged fielding gave the 'l'eeh bat swingers two more runs in the fourth. The fifth was another disastrous period for our hopes. An error and a base on balls put two Tech men on the bags, and they both scored when Coddington, the batting star of the game, doubled to left. Following this sorrowful incident, De La Mater was yanked and Captain Dexter was sent to the slab. But before "Hack" could get going Sharp, an old favorite of the ldfhite and Yellow rooters, doubled to the left garden and another run came in. ln the meantime McClure was fanning our 'fball and glove" artists regular. I-le surely had something on the ball. Ilowevcr, lelorwinski managed to draw a pass in the eighth frame and completed the circuit on singles by Dexter and De l.a Blatcr. llut what was the use? Tech scored three more tallies in their half of the eighth. This was largely due to extra cushion bits by Coddington and KlcClure and poor infield support. filen llart opened the ninth with a four-bag swat to the center pasture, but there ended the scoring of the day. Thus the sad tale of a o to 3 defeat came to an end, and the loyal baud of cold and half-starved Alameda rooters left the game for the nearby lunch counters. Page 78 ALAMEDA.

On Monday Admiral Dexter's Invincible Armada composed of nine ships of the line, convoyed by several frigates, and fol- lowed by a small mosquito fleet, cruised down to Belmont, and, after a bombardment of two hours, emerged victorious from the smoke, having succeeded in smashing through Bel- mon'ts defenses for a 6 to o victory. Tom Birbeck was chief dreadnaught for the Alameda forces and was so accurate in his aim that the opposing gunners were successful in breaking through the fire only two times. Slayer was on the firing line for Belmont and put up a good g t. The batting ships were repaired in fresh water, after which they plentifully stoked up with provisions from the spoils of the enemy.

Alameda 14, Berkeley 3. Alameda won the first game of the Alameda County Ath- letic League Monday afternoon, April 19, by defeating the Berkeley tossers I4 to 3 in a slow game played at Bay View Park, Oakland. Although the fielding of the ,game was a little ragged, the boys showed their ability to land on the ball by driving out I6 safe hits, most of which scored runs. Benedickson made the longest hit of the game by driving the ball into deep cen- ter for four bags. Horwinski also made a homer, but in his efforts to imitate Barney Qldfield taking the right angle curves in the Exposition races he failed to touch third and was called out. Tom Birbeck was in the box for Alameda and he twirled a beautiful game, being especially effective in the pinches. Ot- toman started the game for Berkeley, but was given the hook in the hrst inning. Heinze succeeded him and remained in the box until the eighth, when McCord was sent in to finish the game. The way Alameda started off almost took the heart out of the Berkeleyites. Although it was in this inning that Hor- l'age 79 winski's homer did not count, they succeeded in chalking up two runs. The college town boys came back inthe second by scoring one run and for awhile it looked as though the game was going to be a close one. llowever, alter the fifth, it looked very different. Captain llcxtcr singled to left field and was scored a moment later on l'fcling'cr's two-base drive to center. f'Chief" De La Mater llicd out to left lield and llenediclcson was next at bat. 'He lost no time in smashing out his home run, which made the third run of the inning. 'l'hc sixth was another fruitful period for Alameda. Succes- sive hits by Shepardson, llirbeck, Edinger and De La Mater accounted lor four rims, which practically put the game on ice. llcrkeley scored two runs, but Alameda made up for this lrillc by scoring' live more tallies. This made the final score ol' Ll to 3. The box score: ALAMEDA. BERKELEY. ab- Y- bhfpo. a. e. ab. r. bh. po. a. e.

The 'nr -4 f ' :J Q' My men who trained faithfully under the poor t1ZLClx con- ' :J Qxoatf ditions which prevailed at the beginning of this term deserve great credit. The one thing Alameda needed was a cinder path and we finally have it, although too late for this season. For almost three months only two fellows turned out regularly in the yard, but as soon as the new track at Lincoln Park was finished about thirty-five fellows put in an appear- ance. No 1neets were entered because of the lack of training due to the poor conditions and small turnouts. Among the fellows this term on the new track were "Jumbo" Redmond, Cathcart, Corry, Holden, Larder, Edinger, Perkins. Volberg, Kerr, Neal, McNutt, Vaughan, McKimmons, Kahn and last but not least "Mt, Tamalpaisl' Latham. A Next term a great deal may be expected from the Alameda High School, for we now have a good track and a "real coach" to direct us. Look out for your laurels, oh ye athletes of Oak- land and Berkeley. SAM HARDIN QCaptainj. V Il Il ll Il ll Il Il ll ll Il Il ll H TENNIS BASKETBALL R ll JI! IE ZH IE "EH fl Q C Q LTHOUCH two members of last year's tennis team 0 0 1 in the lnterscholastic, Exposition and Alameda ou , ,, County lournaments the A. H. S. expects to keep the high standard set by last year's team. IIKLVIX L fig Q have left school, sufficient material remains, so that 0 . n IFN 4 11 Owing to incessant rains, the members who signed for ten- nis were unable to accomplish anything prior to the Easter vacation. Fortunately for them, the other schools about the bay suffered equally. Since the more important tournaments do not start until the close of school, that lack of an early start ought not to prove detrimental to prospects. An inter- class tournament is to be held, which should serve as an effec- tive means for selecting a victorious team. Tennis has had a rather strenuous struggle for recognition, despite the facts that last term the Men's 'Handicap Doubles Lhampionship of the State of California was won by a boy attending the A. H. S., and that the present juniors' Singles L'hampion of this city is in attendance here. That Alameda High does not occupy the place it should on the tennis map is because of the lack of funds in the school treasury. For this reason tennis has not as yet received the support and co-operation it should. COLTMAN SHEPARD, Captain. Page S2 CWH9 ASKET-BALL has at last come back to Alameda 'f 0 High we hope, to stay. No interest has been taken Q in this sport since 1910. Then it was not supported C D b , J C r D D Ccfotd either financially or otherwise. At the nrst of the term several of the fellows gave promise of becoming stars, and it was hoped that Alameda would have a team which would contend for the league championship. One of these fellows proved to be ineligible for league games. Two others refused to take any interest in the school team, and contented themselves with playing inter-class and fed- eral basket-ball. This kind of spirit is to be regretted. It is going back to the old way of doing things. XN'e can only hope that the disease will not prove contagious. The only players who were left for Coach Rittler to pick a team from had not had the former experience in the game necessary to make a championship team. They were also .handicapped by lack of training quarters or a proper gymnasium. It is to be hoped an adequate one will be provided by next year. D The team showed the' characteristic Alameda hghting spirit in all their games. This and the spirit which makes fellows take up a new sport and play their best, although sure of defeat, are the sure roads to victory. The team that represented Alameda was as follows: De Lagplatel' lC3ll3ta111D and Rea, forwards, Baldwin, center, Beggs and Cox, guards, Buben and Gill, substitutes. I nter-C lass B asket-B all. . N-TER-CLASS BASKET-BALL was started this NC 9 term to aid in selecting and developing a first team. Great interest was shown in the inter-room teams kv throughout the season. In fact, it was thought by some that they detracted from the first team. W7hether this was so or not, Coach Ritler has decided that next year the inter-room games will be held immediately after football season. This will develop material and aid in selecting a winning team. There is no doubt that it will prove a success. This year the inter-room league was won by Mr. Agard's room. The league was run on an elimination basis. The first team to drop out of the running was Mr. Evans? room. Mr. Smiths soon followed. Mr. Carpenters and Mr. Daniels' room followed, after a long struggle, leaving Mr. Miniumls and Mr. Agard's rooms to finish the dispute. Up to this time Minium's room team had not met defeat, although Mr. Agard's room had been beaten once by Mr. Daniels' room. Mr. Agards room showed their championship material now by defeating their opponents in two fast games. So much spirit was shown over the inter-room basket-ball that it is to be regretted that bad weather prevented the hold- ing of an inter-room baseball league. Mr. Agard's room championship team was as follows: S4736 Q 013103. ,D Mehan, Adams, forwards, Redmond, centerg Dexter, Etter, guardsg Merrill Qcaptainj, Lamborne, substitutes.

It is true that we lost a good many veterans, but we had a good second team last year that may be drawn from. The scrum, at present, looks rather weak, with only three old players. Wfhoever the five new men may be, whatever they may lack in experience, will be made up in the fighting spirit of Alameda High. The back- Held seems to be our greatest asset. Everybody knows what a great scoring machine we had last year and with only two of the backs missing we should have an even faster backhelcl than last season.

Qu ang RE the girls of the Alameda High School to have a ' basket-ball team? After several challenges from dif- ferent high schools, the girls became so enthusiastic that twenty-six began to practice in order to organize a team to represent the Alameda High School. After practice twice a week, the team began to show improvement over the work of the preceding term. A great deal of the success was due to Coach Rittler, who was untiring in his efforts, Al- though not entirely successful in the games, the players had much fun. The daily practice was splendid exercise for each of the girls. Games were played with Miss Ransom's and Miss Headls schools on their courts, and a ine game with San Rafael on the Alameda court. After this game the visitors were enter- tained with a small program and chocolate and cake. The San Rafael girls enjoyed themselves and Alameda hopes to be able next term to pay a visit to San Rafael. Those actively engaged in the basket-ball work are: Alfreda Georgeson, Margaret Fulton, Helen Anderson, Ruth Hendrick- son, Edith Nickerson, Ethel Musgrave, Ruth Crane, Ruth Benas, Margaret Rose, Adabelle Sutton, Bernice Boardman Ruby Rodell, Alvera johnson, Hattie Miller, Edna Littlejohn, Edith Bearce and Edith Harrington. The basket-ball girls wish to take this opportunity to thank the teachers who accompanied them to games on outside courts.

However, the large number participating in this sport is encouraging and we hope that in the coming term a team will be selected which will be victorious in all tourna- ments. Martha Hyde was chosen as the captain. Miss Hyde is also special captain for Lincoln Park. The other captains and their districts are: Marion Stack, McKinley Parkg Eleanor Sharpstein, Wasliington Parkg Edith Meyers, private courtg Yirginia Ciohn, private court. These captains keep traek of the number of hours played by eaeh girl in their district. Two tin-nonts a week are required to gain the one-fourth unit which llr.

Tennis is a line exercise, and we hope that in the coming term the girls will organize and select the best players among their nninlier to represent the school. Page So 'Nu n -7. GIRLS' TENNIS TEAM Minus Coach Rittler Second Team-Baseball. fellows not showing enough class to play on the of first team organized a second team. These fellows turned out regularly and organized a team which QAUU would force the first team to the limit if they ever meet. They' defeated the second team from Oakland Technical, which has a larger bunch to pick from than Alameda. The score was 6 to 4, being very close. Alameda also defeated the Dummies CDeaf and Dumb Institute of U. GD by the score of 6 to 2. This is a good showing for the second team, and if they keep up this brand of ball they will be the champs of Alameda county. The line-up was as follows: George Donald, short- stopg Leslie Olsen, second baseg John Larkin, first baseg Ru- dolph Buben, right lieldg Clark Gill Ccaptainj, left fieldg lN'ill Cathcart, third baseg Ray Brown, catcherg George Kellner, center fieldg Leo Mulvaney, pitcher. Water S ports. An attempt has been made this term to introduce swim- ming as one of the sports open to girls. For several terms the boys have had a swimming team and have succeeded in win- ning a number of trophies. The girls, however, have .never organized, although there are many expert swimmers in the school. Mr. Rittler, our athletic instructor is anxious to hold a girls, swimming meet. This will probably be held next term, as the water has been too cold so far to permit much prac- tice. Captains have been appointed in each advisory class to ascertain the number of girls wishing to turn out for swim- ming. Situated as we are, on the bay, we should be able tg produce many champion swimmers among the girls as we as the boys. Rowing has not been started this term on account of the un- favorable weather conditions. It will probably be included in the category of girls' athletics next term. Rowing is said to be the best exercise that one can engage in, as it strengthens all parts of the body. The popularity of rowing the last Fall term leads us to think that many of the girls will participate in this sport next term. 'Stu MR.

The Ukulele Club took their Nukes' and entertained the rest ot the party While out in the Woods. They came home after dark so as to see the Fair Grounds lighted. The day was declared a great success by everyone who went. Martha Cattermole was elected cap- tain of the swimming team of room I2 and although there are only seven girls turning out they expect to bring back great honors to the room. E -Y Q SL MMER vAoAT1o S the summer vacation draws near, the busy students 9 J important question, "XVhat shall I do during the L? coming vacation PU E era of the Alameda High School are absorbed in the all- 351 D Some of the more energetic pupils have been formulating their plans ever since school started last fall and they are go- ing to make the most of the tvxo short months. One or tzvo of the lucky ones who are not troubled with pecuniary problems are going to accompany their relations to the Eastern States and "see America first,'l but the majority will let the great world come to them at the Exposition in San Francisco. Those students whose parents have automobiles are undoubtedly looking forward to a tour to Yosemite, Tahoe, Los Angeles, Santa Cruz or Portland. These trips will be especially delight- ful and the lucky ones will begin to appreciate the true beauty of our great State. The local papers say that trout fishing and hunting will be excellent this year and fishing tackle and guns are already being put in order for this bright prospect. Many students who are not contemplating travel as a recreation are making sure of profitable positions for the sum- mer. The 'fEncinal Cityl' has a decided attraction for the stay- at-homes, its many parks and bathing beaches are gaining rec- ognition rapidly, and the boat clubs and tennis courts will be helpful in giving their members many happy hours. Many Alamedans plan to spend a portion of the vacation at Brookdale. Among these are: 'Helen Lamb, Elizabeth Eunke, Russell Medcraft, Alice Moran, Charles and Felix Mehan. E The Russian River has always attracted many from this city. A few of those who will make it their destination are: Helen Murray, who will also visit Santa Cruz and Stock- tong Virginia Eoster, Marion lValden, Ethel Musgrave, Sybilla Lamont, Wlalter Dennison, Sherman Asche, George Latham and Tom Ryan. After a week at San Diego, Mr. Agard will spend his ninth summer at Yosemite. Virginia Gohn is to visit Virginia City in Montana. Alice Edinger is going to Cantata, Siskiyou County. Dr. Thompson is talking of Tuolumne Meadows. Miss Du Bois is yearning for Australia and is studying the wallaby. Janet Brown is to join the colony in Yosemite and is after- wards to go to Napa. Vivienne Hallowell is to visit her sister Dorothy QMrs. Porterj at Los Angeles. Qthers who will visit Los Angeles are Dorothy Gibson, Adeline Getz and Henrietta Hodges. Howell Mountain will attract many, among them being Esther and Helen Bruton, Adele Lowenthal. Honor Bailey is going to Gridley, in the Sacramento Valley. Doris Harbert will visit Fathead Lake, in Montana. Ruth Eubanks intends to make the interesting trip to Nt. Shasta. Clarisse Sheldon will go to the Columbia River region.
