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
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
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-
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
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
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
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

HE EDITORS of the Acorn, being in a reminiscent
ef and questioning mood, are also disposed, like Silas

QAM-9 time French poet which has been bothering them
might be translated, "lNhere are the roseate enthusiasms of
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-
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-
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
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,"
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
Xot so many years ago the books at the disposal of the
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
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 "

.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
"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

the quavering voice, "I've had some of the best pieces in the

and I do get real excited. Are you beginning to understand ?"
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.

After it was all finished, I wrapped it up real careful and sent it
to the Exposition people. 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
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.

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
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
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
.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. ARTHUR F, AGARD.

EQ 'I' e Great Aerial Invasion
-'NWN l.'l'lltJL'tiH but tive years have passed since the great
eg 3 japanese .Xeriel invasion and its terrible ending, .al-
QJ lg ready early in 192-O evidences of error are beginning
to creep into the almost innumerable published ac-
counts of this, the most terrific incident in the world's history.
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-
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
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
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
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!
'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-
"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

breaking of a bubble. But with him passed al ' 1

From low-pulsed earth he rose to noble height,

Who looped his sunward course in azure glare,
Swift wheeled his woven wings in lonesome flight,
Glicled and floated through the star-lit night
When upward soaring with exultant dareg
Cloud-wreathed beneath him fields and watery lair,
Faint glowing domes which smiled in evening light.
Lo! with lost control and loosened strings,
Headlong he rushed through the affrighted air

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-
two are now left to be pronounced "the best class that ever
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
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
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
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

class editor, Clyde Shepardson, class representatives, Grace
Bradford and Kenneth Lynch.

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.

"Poser, poser," twitted his brothers and sisters: but the little

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

They looked at each other and nodded their heads as one of their

Qvq F IT had not been for the tact that it vvas necessary for
the Student Body to pay part of Mr. Rittler's salary, the
SK present administration would have been able to leave
25135 a balance in the treasury. 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.
If some adequate means of Hnanee can be devised by the
coming' administration, they should End no trouble in leaving
funds in the treasury at the end of the term.

G D 5- in the l'-ligh School. ln October, IQI2, Alameda was
Q 5 defeated by llerkeley in an interscholastic debate, and
.Cffofl until last term all challenges were refused.
'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

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

"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.

The Y. M. C. A. Bean Fests.
'N NEW7 activity was introduced into the school this
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:

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 .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

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

At the high school branch full records are kept of each ehild'S
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.

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.

The class that entered as Freshmen in Atigtist, 1911, has at
last Iiuishcd the terrible ordeal. For "four long' years they
have stood upon the bloody sands of the arena"-and lost over
hall' their original number.
'l'hc members of this class feel more than grateful to the
members of the faculty, who have so ably advised them in all
matters. 'llhcy feel that they have been fortunate in attending
the .Xlanicda lligh School, and although glad to get out, hope
that succeeding' graduating' classes will feel as kindly towards
the faculty as does the present one.

This term the Low Senior Class presented the three-act
comedy, "Mrs Dot." Wlith the aid of the faculty committee
and the coach, they were able to put on as lively a farce as
any seen in the past few years. The parts were all ably taken
and the whole performance was carried off with the usual
smoothness which characterizes nearly all Senior Class pro-
ductions. Next term this class hopes to equal the record
already set by the present Graduating Class in the number of
school activities in which they have participated.
'l'lic freshmen this term have shown more school spirit than
has any other tirst-year class for a long time. The Whole
t'i'csluuan organization showed fine spirit by getting' up and
presenting' a clever little playlet entitled "The Kleptomaniacu

The rooting this semester has been far superior to all pre-
vious terms. To account for this the fellows have shown more
Apep." It has been the iirst term that the fellows have come
up and taken the front seats in the student meetings. It is
also the first term in the history of the school that we have had
new motions, all of which adds much to the Vim and enthu-
siasm of the rooting.

QVC 'N the issue of the ".Xcorn" for june, 1914, a new method
'S was adopted for dealing with exchanges. 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
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.
Wfe Wish to take this opportunity of thanking the following
papers for copies received:

Qpwj class of December, 1915, broke into the hall of
M153 fame with the production of the three-act comedy,
gilqm "Mrs, Dot," at Adelphian Hall, March 12th. The
efeicj play was a great success, as the cast was well chosen.
Velma llelamater as Mrs. Dorothy Wforthley displayed
marked talent and with her winning smile completely cap-
tured her audience. Fred Xllarford in his pursuit of Mrs.
Worthley again showed his ability. The surprise of the even-
ing came when hashful Harry litter made love to Winning
Klzirgaret Calcutt in true Carlyle style. The audience rose
to its feet and cheered the cast at the end of the play, so that
forever more the fame of the class December, FIS, is assured.
Tom llirlueclt in the part of an old English bachelor acted
his role with distinction. I-le was in the difficult position of
playing' the opposite of his own character. The contrast be-
tween Tom on the stage and Tom in real life was so marked
that he was a decided favorite with the audience.

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
"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'

part of the local fans, for our team ranks vvell up with the

have two more games to play and a good chance to bring home

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
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
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
"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

Alameda 3, Oakland Techneial 9.
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-
'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
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.

On Monday Admiral Dexter's Invincible Armada composed
of nine ships of the line, convoyed by several frigates, and fol-

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.

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
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 way Alameda started off almost took the heart out of
the Berkeleyites. Although it was in this inning that Hor-
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:

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.

C D b , J C r
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.

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:
Mehan, Adams, forwards, Redmond, centerg Dexter, Etter,
guardsg Merrill Qcaptainj, Lamborne, substitutes.
Top Row: Merritt, Dexter,
Mr. Agard, Mehan, Redmond.

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 teachers who accompanied them to games on outside
courts. MARGARET ROSE, Captain.

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-

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
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.
