Re-awakening of Class Spirit
N PREVIOUS terms the lower classmen have done nothing
in the way of real, organized efforts. They have always
elected their officers and gone on their individual ways
witllout another thought of class interest.
But this semester such a stir of class spirit has gone
through the school as we have not seen since the advisory sys-
tem of registration was established. Every class has held meet-
ings for purposes other than election of officers, and every class
seems full of energy of the right sort.
The boys have started the precedent of having class capsg
hence the caps of many colors which are worn with much pride
and class enthusiasm. The girls have done remarkably wellg
already the High Freshman have bought rings, and the others
have planned and carried through numerous sales for the benefit
of the A. S. A. H. S.
Then, consider that old instiution-the Junior dance-for
four years it has been omitted from class activities, simply
because no High Junior class could muster the requisite enthusi-
asm and cash. The Low Juniors have taken it to themselves
this term in order to boost the campaign for a moving picture
machine. We think this is better than the old custom and sets a
more worthy precedent. In mentioning this class we must not
forget the famous Gflunior pin."
So the seemingly defunct class spirit has been re-incarnated
and is thriving. May it live long and happily!
The Loan Fund
Many people do not know that the Star and Key Society
maintains a Loan Fund as a financial aid to students in the
High School, or to graduates who wish to attend the University
of California. This Loan Fund was inaugurated two years ago
when a concert was given under the direction of the Music-
Dramatic Assembly of Alamedag many talented and professional
people of the bay region contributing. The money obtained
from the concert, amounting to about two hundred dollars, was
placed in charge of Dr. Thompson and four prominent men of
the city to act as trustees. Any worthy student may borrow
from this fund, paying no interest and only Dr. Thompson
knowing the name of the person to whom the money is loaned.
This term an entertainment was given at Washington School,
and approximately seventy five dollars was added to the orig-
inal sum, nearly all of which is in use at the present time.
The High School feels sure that many of the people in this
city, when they realize the importance of this fund, may care
to contribute money, and will gladly support any future enter-
tainments given for this purpose. No scholarships are offered in
the Freshman year at college, which is, perhaps, the most difti-
cult year for the studentg so that, in many cases, the Loan Fund
is the only financial aid obtainable by Alameda graduates.
Furthermore, it is purely a business proposition, depending
entirely upon the honor of the borrower.
The Loan Fund is one of the really worth-while and perma-
nent things that the High School and the Star and Key have
Fremont High School maintains the sum of two thousand
dollars for the same purpose, and since our own school is
increasing in numbers, and more students are depending upon
this to defray college expenses, why can not we raise a similar
amount? Surely such a matter is of great importance and
worthy of everyone's attention.
During this semester more than usual has been accomplished
along the line of vocational guidance. This is due in large
part to the untiring efforts of Miss Garretson who for several
years has been deeply interested in this subject. Owing to
the present arrangement of the program it has been difficult
to introduce vocational guidance into the curriculum. However,
a start has been made, and regular classes are being held.
In the class period a wide range of possible vocations are
discussed, the students being required to deliver short speeches
on the occupation they desire to follow at the end of their
school life. In the boys' class such fields as: Agriculture, min-
ing, civil engineering, railroading, etc., are thoroughly gone
over, so that at the end of the course the student should be able
to decide wisely in what direction his particular powers tend.
The girls also are finding their class of great benefit and assist-
ance, as the vocations open to women are much more numerous
than in the past and only in this way can they study, and get
accurate knowledge of their special abilities in this larger field.
Girls who are intending to become teachers, especially those
planning to attend Normal School, meet on certain days with
Mr. Agard, Head of the English Department. The object is:
to see whether teaching is their proper sphere and, if so, to
plan their High School course to that end: and also to discuss
teaching in all its intricacies.
Many lecturers have spoken to us on Vocational Guidance,
among these we seem to have been impressed most by Harris
Weinstock, who spoke in the High School in 1913. His subject
was "Choosing a Profession or The Ethics of Business." He
pointed out that much depends on determining the capabilities
of a young man and allowing him to follow a single road to
a given end. Any young man, he stated, who maps out his
career and follows the course with zeal, must necessarily succeed.
Will C. Wood, Commissioner of Secondary Education is
strongly in favor of more attention to this subject. He says:
"The matter of Vocational Guidance is certain to require more
attention from school authorities than has hitherto been given
it. The High School curriculum has been broadened until
it reaches a variety of vocational subjects as well as the tradi-
tional academic branches. The life-calling of a boy or girl
must not be attempted on the basis of a fifteen minute inter-
view on enrollment day. Someone should make a scientific
study of the vocational needs and capabilities of each student,
and the student's course should be shaped in the light of this."
This scientific attitude is what we urge, fellow students.
We think you should aid and encourage all efforts in this direc-
tion both for your own good and that of those who may follow
you. Those who have entered into the Vocational Guidance
course, as we now have it, with the proper attitude and spirit,
have been greatly benefitted, and are quite enthusiastic about
its continuance. Perhaps, if we show sufficient interest and
appreciation, a place will be made for this course in the regular
I Motion Picture Machine
The students of the High School have shown a real school
spirit in supporting the various activities undertaken for the
purpose of acquiring a motion picture machine. The Monsen
lectures, the Glee Club Concert, the Junior Prom, and the
money given by the Senior girls and the diH'erent classes have
made it possible for the committee in charge to purchase the
machine at an early date.
Many different kinds of pictures will be shown, some scien-
tific and others historical and literary, as for example, dramati-
zations of books or reproductions of famous plays. Attempts
will be made to secure pictures that will interest or have a di-
rect bearing on every department in the school. For the most
part, except in the case of the more expensive films, these pic-
tures will be free to the students.
The motion picture, because of its great educational value,
is becoming more and more important. It is a well-established
fact that ninety per cent of the people are visual-mindedg that
is, they obtain most of their knowledge through the sense of
sight. For this reason, the modern school employs charts, pic-
tures, field and industrial excursions in instructing the pupils.
Moreover, it is realized that possibilities in visual instruction
will not be fully realized until the motion picture becomes a
part of the equipment of every school. We are proud to think
that the Alameda High School, through the successful efforts
of one term's work is now able to purchase one.
The Editorial staff of the December, '16 ACORN rejoices
that its work is at an end, and that the book is now in press. We
have attempted to present in this edition, as in other issues,
some of the lighter interests in school, and at the same time to
give an insight into the truer and deeper life in the Alameda
High School. If this book gives evidence of good feeling and
comradeship existing in our school, our work and hopes are
accomplished and fulfilled.

IFTEEN hands he stood,-bright sorrel from the tip of
his smooth nose to the white hind feet that had earned
him his name.
lf you l1ad seen him grazing, with the crisp wind
rufliing his mane, and the su11 glinting on the gold
points in his coat, you would probably have gone 011 a search
for his owner, and ,lim Bcntly would have looked at you coldly,
"Not for sale!"
For Silver Spurs and ,lim Bently were seldom seen apart.
They had come to the Lazy S together, and no man knew their
past, nor did any one ask. Their present was enough, that was
Silver Spurs nickered softly as his master opened the corral
gate, and came across the open to meet him. These two under-
stood each other, without the rope and the language other men
used. ,lim tucked a stray lock under the brow band of his
bridle, and led the sorrel to the barn where his saddle hung.
The equipment of his pet was his only pride, and his saddle
was heavy carved Mexican leather, the pommel and cantle orna-
mented with beaten silver. No joshing could make him change
his gear, so the saddle was accepted as part of the day's work.
"Hey, ,lim,', yelled Charlie Lane, as the puncher reached for
the saddle, "don't make the cows jealous of your beauty!"
Hl,m hoping they'll eat out of 111y hand," replied Jim, mildly.
"Seems to me they must be getting envious of you: you never
start after them any more. How comes it you're all spruced
up? Boss sending you in for the lllZlll?,,
Lane retired, in solne confusion, but Matt Treliiord took up
'6Has your lamb had his nails manicured yet?" he drawled.
'fseems to me l saw the file over there in the shop. Better get
busy, Jim, wouldnit do for him to fall into bad habits. Hey,
boys, l hear ,lim's trainin' the lamb to drink with him: he gets
lonely at the bar without him."
half you,d teach ,liggles to drink with you, maybe you'd stop
having tll0SC lonely fits after you come out from town,', retorted
Jim, swinging to the saddle.
The laugh was on Matt, and the sorrel vanished in a swirl of
dust, and a rapid fire of pointed remarks.
uHe's a quick-witted fellow," laughed Charlie, as he and
Matt rode out of the gate on their way to town a few minutes
later, "if I caught ,lim Bently napping, l'd sure bragg about it
for a good while."
uHe don't say much," agreed Matt, 'abut what he does say
gets there. Let's frame a party for ,lim when he gets in to-night."
'6Wait till he won't be lookin' for it," advised Charlie. Mmake
it a story on Silver Spurs. That'll get him quicker than any-
thing else. Wllat have you?"
"Say, did you ever hear the yarn old man Kingsly used to
spin about his animal? He had it tllat he was ridin' through
timber one day, and he come to a place where a tree was down
across the trail. Couldn't see any way to get round, and was
just figurin' the best way to cut it, when he felt a jar, and he
was on the other side."
M.lumped?', queried Charlie.
"No,-said the horse got down on its knees and crawled
Meanwhile Jim was riding herd silently. The hill can be
very still on a hot, summer afternoon, when the wind is dead,
and the white clouds hang in the sky like becalmed, white-sailed
boats. The brown grass was crisp under foot, and the weary
cattle sniffed disgustedly at it. Silver Spurs kept his matcllless
gait unbroken, answering the slightest signal, now and again
tossing his head to attract the attention of his strangely quiet
"Silver," said the man suddenly, ado you want to 0 back?,'
Silver, being well trained, and divining the tone in Tiis rider's
voice, shook his head restlessly from side to side.
"You don't? Then we'll stay here, until they come after us,
boy! Damned if I'll take you back there to save my honor. No,
we're all right here, and here we stick."
One by one the slow weeks slid by. Now the monotonous
heat would be broken by a dry, cold, north wind, that came
from nowhere, and returned there, while tempers of men and
horses were strained to the breaking point.
Now heavy clouds would slide up from the southwest, and
rain would hover overhead, heavy rain, that never came. But
always there was work to be done, and always Jim Bently and
Silver Spurs were ready to do it. Fall turned to winter, and
the first rains came at last, bringing promise of snow and
storm to come. The Lazy S stored its barn with grain for the
horses, and men rode to town less often, because of the mud.
And still the work was to be done, and the man and horse
were there to do it.
'4jin1,'i said Babe Drayton, coming into the bunkhouse where
Jim was playing solitaire, with a longer pause between plays
than the science of the game demanded. "J im, boss says you're
to take your lamb, and go over to the north pasture, and tell
Simmonds not to do anything more in that horse deal with
Bradly until he hears direct. Bet you can't get over there and
back with your darling in two hours."
"Take you up on that," replied Jim sweeping the cards
together. "What'll you make it?"
Oh, five, and the drinks. Pm broke."
"Better have your old stand-by ready to count the minutes.
If I went by your relic of time, lid take all the afternoon, and
it'd only be ten minutes."
Babe flushed at the thrust, and muttered something about
L'Say, Babe, tell me the trouble. Honest now, was it Noah
got water in the works of your clock, or Mrs. Noah?"
Without waiting for his answer, ,lim stepped out into the
cold wind, struggling into his coat as he went. Low clouds were
banked on the eastern horizon line, and more were piling up
from the west. Silver Spurs snorted as he was headed into
the open, sensing snow in the chill wind.
"Two hours,', muttered Jim. uwhy we should do it in half
that time without trying. Pm ashamed to take Babels money:
that kid bets so easy. Come on, youg you've got a rep to keep."
Simmonds, the foreman, was found without trouble at the
north pasture. and made no comment on the order.
4'Tell the boss his gray mare strayed off in that last rain, and
slid into a hole. He'd better see Hanly about gettin' her sister
if he wants a gray trotter bad. Looks like snow. So long."
,lim urged Silver Spurs up the short rise from the corral,
and disappeared over the top of a nearby hill.
Not at all winded by his outward trip, Silver Spurs covered
the returning miles with time to spare, and brought his master
to the ranch-house almost half an hour earlier than anyone
expected him. ,lim swung off, laughing to think of Drayton's
disgust, and strode in to report to the boss, but the sound of
voices raised in heated argument stopped him before he reached
the inner room.
ul know he's a good manf' said a voice he knew only too
well, Hand I sure hate to do it, Peters, but l've got my orders to
accept no excuse, but to bring him back with the horse. They
want him had over where l come from. The horse was to
have gone to a fellow, to clinch some deal, and the deal's off
until they bring the pair of them back. You know the man.

'LYes, I know. You say Bently took the horse to keep him
from being sold to that brute?,'
4'So they told me. lt seems Bently had broken the horse,
and ridden him ever since. He was saving up money to buy
Silver Spurs, when this deal was arranged, and when he heard
the horse was to be given to Creelton, he took French leave one
night. The boys are all for him, and about said they'd pleased
to see me coming back alone, but l've got my orders from higher
up, 'alive or deadl'-and llm up against it, Peters.'7
"l see. Well, Bently's gone oil' for me. He'll be back soon
with the horse. lt's up to you."
'4That's it.', The sheriH"s voice sounded a bit mournful. HA
good man gone for a crooked deal."
l Bently turned noiselessly, but with his first step his spur
caught in the fringe of a rug, and he all but fell headlong.
Peters sprang up, and jerked aside the curtain that hid the door.
Bently, cornered, faced them squarely.
'6Yes," he said, slowly. 'fl heard! So they want me to send
Silver Spurs back to Creelton? Well, l'll see them where they
"Sorry, Jim, but I've got my orders," the sheriff cut in.
"Forget them!" advised Bently. "You can have Silver when
you get him."

In a flash his gun was out, covering the sheriff. In three
steps he reached the open, and was racing for Silver Spurs.
With an oath, the sheriff drew his gun and fired. Bently
lurched in the saddle, but recovered himself, and was gone
before the sheriff could pull the trigger again.
Silver Spurs galloped slower and slower, until he fell grad-
ually into a walk. He pricked his ears, waiting some sign from
his master, but received no word. Suddenly his rider slipped
from the saddle and fell heavily. The horse turned back, and
touched the still figure with his nose, gently. Bently, roused
from his stupor by the familiar touch, raised himself on one
elbow with an effort, and dragged himself upright by the aid
of the stirrup. Slowly and with a painful effort he undid the
latigo strap, and pulled the cinch loose. The bridle followed
the saddle to the ground, and Silver Spurs stood free of the
marks of his servitude.
"Go on, Silver," whispered the man, "Goodby! Perhaps-"
He dropped face downward in the trail, and lay very still.
Silver Spurs whinnied softly and nozzled his master caress-
ingly. The storm clouds had swept lower, menacing, ominous.
A gust of wind brought the first flakes of snow. The horse
stamped uneasily, knowing that he must drift with the wind to
live out the storm. He took a few steps, but his master made
no move to follow. The white Hakes were falling faster nowg
the quiet body was half covered. Silver Spurs turned back, and
again sniffed his master. Then, as though heeding a command,
he moved to windward of the prostrate man, and stood with his
head bowed and his long mane sweeping the ground. The
swiftly falling snow dropped about the two like the final curtain
of eternity, and the dark slipped down, hiding the hills.

U UU say their gold has been stolen from them?" with Mariquita in the mission garden whenever she wanted to
HYes, my daughter. not only their pesos. but many
head of cattle, too. I heard it from El Senor Con-
zales, who met a stranger in from the mountains."
"But tell me more, my father."
"Ah, but that is all I know, ninita. It is perhaps all rumor,
this talk of Senor Gonzales. He merely met a stranger who
had heard a rulnor. And yet there is some talk of Don Pico.
Quien sabe?" '
It was the good padre speaking. It was his custom to walk
come, which was often, for she and the new padre were the
best of friends.
'4And now, my little one," said the old man, smiling, "you
must go presently, for the sun is fast fading, and La Favorita
must rest before the ball tonight."
As she walked from the garden, Mariquita, La Favorita of
Monterey, wondered what crime had been committed in the
mountains. Yes, it was Don Pico who had stolen the herds and
the money. Don Pico alone? Perhaps not. But then there
were other outlaws in the mountains who never did respect the
flag of the Americano in California. Well she remembered the
time not twelve months ago when pearls worth a king's ransom,
stolen from the Mission altar, were found in possession of Don
Pico. She wondered just how bad this outlaw was. She knew
he had lived for years in the mountains away from every one.
They said he was handsome. She even wished sl1e might meet
him. How exciting! Oh, well, she would not worry. It was
not her gold nor her people's cattle. She would dance and flirt
as much as she pleased and all the men would flock around her.
The people of Monterey danced every night, and at the fash-
ionable hour of ten all were gathered for the dance. All the
men wore black velvet coats and white trousers. Most of the
women wore bright colors, the waists long and pointed and the
skirts full. Mariquita wore white satin, and looked very beau-
tiful indeed with her long black hair braided close to her neck.
As usual she was surrounded by twenty caballeros, all pleading
for dances, each striving for a little more attention than his
neighbor. The sala was brilliantly lighted, and presented a
very gay scene indeed. The coffe-colored duenas were seated
around the wall and never relaxed their vigilant watching of
their pretty charges. Indeed, their eagle eyes took in every
lIl0VClTlCIlt to see that the couples did not step beyond the out-
side corridor to wander alnong the trees. A man appeared in
the doorway. A second later and every eye was upon him. Ah,
who is the good looking stranger? But none seemed to know
He was indeed handsome, his face lacked that languid, am-
bitionless expression so characteristic of the Californian. Mari-
quita lost no time. uBring him to me," she ordered her nearest
admirer. A lnoment later and he was bowing low before her.
"Ah, senorita, at your feetf, It need not be said that the good-
looking Senor Cabanares was fascinated with La Favorita of
Monterey, and that he lost no time in literally throwing him-
self at her feet. But if Mariquita was at all interested in him
she soon forgot all about him, and was wholly absorbed with a
young American officer, Crandall by name. His blue eyes and
fair hair had completely captivated her. Indeed she believed
herself to be in love with him, and any one could see, as the
senoritas put it, that he was simply mad about her. They
danced the contradanza together, and indeed almost every other
dance, with all eyes upon them, until the caballeros were nearly
wild with jealousy, including Senor Cabanares who refused to
dance at all. MAb, that Americano has worked witchcraft," they
said, "until she will have none of us."
As the days passed Mariquita was the center of attraction
whether it was a picnic to the ocean, or a day at the races, and
the American and Senor Cabanares were the favored ones, it
was plain to be seen. They were rivals of not the friendliest
sort, and it was a triumph for the one and a bitter disappoint-
ment for the other when she chose to accept the attentions of
either. But Marquita herself was having her own troubles.
Her mind was waging war. Which to marry? Both of them
loved her. Both were handsome. To be sure she knew more
about Senor Crandall. He was an American officer, and a
friend of her father's. But that only made Senor Cabanares
more acceptable. There was some mystery hanging about him.
No one knew anything about him. And when he gazed at her
his eyes took fire. The night he had strummed a guitar be-
neath her window she had almost decided to accept him. He
was not like her other lovers, selfish and indolent, knowing how
to do nothing but play the guitar, gamble, and make love. Sud-
denly she remembered the words of her mother. uln a few
years, ninita, the Americanos will have everything. If they
have no money they will work for it. If we are rich now, we
will be poor then. Ay, my daughter, marry the Americano that
Vou may be always happy." Why not? Surely she could love
him. And what did Senor Cabanares have to offer? Nothing.
And so each time she thought the problem solved, she only
found herself the further from it.
Mariquita's father was entertaining some of his friends.
They were talking excitedly. A Spanish soldier, more animated
than the rest, tried to gain the floor to tell what he knew. "Yes,
senor, the thieves have been found. It is very simple now that
we know. The poor Don Pico that we have been hunting for,
he is not to blame at all. But we have found the bandits, yes.,
and with the gold, too, a thousand pesos. They were coming
through the mountain pass where our soldiers were hiding, and
were tracked right to their hiding place, and were forced to
surrender. There were many of them, all desperate wcharacters,
mostly Mexicans. It is true they fought hard, but they are less
by a good number than before. But now the country is rid of
the blood-thirsty wild-cats and we may sleep in peace. Dios de
mi alma, I forgot to say, Don Pico, he did not take the pearlsl'
'6What pearls?" asked a dozen voices.
"But surely you have not forgotten! Don Pico, they said
he stole them not twelve months ago. Si, and ever since there
has been a ban upon him, and he dare not show his face. Ah,
it is l who am glad, for I know him and he is good, good,-
senores. The leader of the outlaws has repented and told all.
No one would believe Don Pico when he said he had not torn
down the crucifix, and stolen those pearls from the Church, but
found them under some leaves by the roadside. Of course you
see, senores, those outlaws had hidden the pearls there and Don
Pico had just by chance found them when, as fate would have
it, our men came up and captured him, thinking him to be the
robber. Luckily he escaped somehow, but not without a bullet
in his shoulder. You see, senores, that is why he has been
living in the mountains ever sinceg before that no one knows.
But I would know him, I have seen him once."
' The stars were shining their brightest. Ont from the shadow
of a tree stepped Senor Cabanares. His face was haggard and
from his spurs and latigo it could be seen that he was ready
for flight. He was watching for some one. Presently that some
one emerged from a lighted doorway, and could the watcher
have known that Mariquita was coming out with her final de-
cision he would have started forward instead of hesitating. To
be sure he had been waiting for that decision for a long time,
but Marlquita knew her own mind now, and was coming to tell
Suddenly voices were heard bidding adios to their host. A
figure rounded the outer corridor, and unexpectedly came face
to face with Senor Cabanares who had come forward. For a
moment they faced each other. "Don Pico!" a harsh voice
cried. Before anything more could be said Mariquita, standing
in a shadow as if stunned, burst forth: 'gSenor! Senor! Is it
true that you are Don Pico? Dios mio! But it can make no
difference. It is the same. I will love you always. If you
say, l will fly with you to the hillsg but make haste. They
will . . ." But this passionate outburst was checked by the
hearty laugh of the Spanish soldier as Don Pico returned the
firm handelasp of lVlariquita's father.

ANILAI Shore! We had been out from San Fran-
cisco for twenty-eight days and, with the exception
of seven hours at Honolulu, had not been on land in
that time. Now we were to have twelve days ashore,
and were anxious to make the most of our oppor-
We had already noticed Corregidor, the Gibraltar of the
Pacific, standing proudly and defiantly at the entrance to the
harbor. Cavite, also had come into view, the historic spot where
Dewey caused the downfall of Spanish sea power.
At last we were in Manila, the Capitol of the Philippine
Islands, and the busiest seaport ill the Far East. As the ship
was to be our home, we did not have to hunt a hotel, although
there are some excellent ones in Manila.
Upon going ashore, we rode for our first time in a carameta
or native "jitney" bus. This is a little, two wheeled cart drawn
by small Australian ponies. Three or four electric lines run
to the suburbs, but we could make better time walking than
riding in these.
Carabaos do the heavy hauling. These cumbersome beasts
are very slow but exceedingly strong, and one of their peculiar-
ities is that they go lllilfl if not subjected to at least three batlls a
day. Every day we saw lines of these beasts having a hose
turned on them.
Cascos are the chief means of water transportation. These
boats are long, narrow and of small draft. A family lives
in each end, and on the roof is always seen the pet rooster.
The space between the houses is for freight, and owners make
their living by renting their cascos to be towed around.
The lntramuros is a place of unusual interest. ln it we
obtained a splendid idea of the life of the old Spaniards. We
saw the narrow, dirty streets, the balconies extending over them,
the iron grating over the windows, the stone houses, and the
encircling wall. This wall averages twenty-five feet in thick-
ness, and has withstood three separate bonlhardments. Many
of the cannons still surmount the wall. One section of the wall
is now used as an aquarium, here we got a splendid view of the
wall's construction. The stones are about two feet square and
one foot thick.
The Luneta is a resort for the people of the entire city.
This large grassy space surrounds a bandstand in which the
Philippine Constabulary Band gives concerts twice each week.
Here we saw many bright colored clothes worn by many races,
among them being: Americans, Filipinos, Spaniards, Chinese,
Japanese and Hindus. They say that there are as many Chinese
in Manila as there as Filipinos. I don't doubt it a bit because
all the big stores are owned by Chinamen, all the gamblers at
the cockpits are Chinese, and about half the criminals are
of the same race.
The main business street of modern Manila is called Escolta.
This is about five hundred yards long, each end terminating
in a plaza. These plazas each connect with the lntramuros by
a bridge across the Pasig River.
The arrangement of the Post Ofhce was, to us, novelg all the
mail boxes, stamp windows, letter slips and writing desks are on
the outside. Only Post Office officials are inside the building.
Across the street are the Botanical Gardens. This beautiful
park contains many samples of Philippine plants, besides a
small zoo, an aviary, and an apiary.
The Y. M. C. A. is the mecca for the young men. Both
Filipino and American Y's are well attended. This is the
only cool place in town, the water in the tank being down to
about seventy-eight degrees.
The outskirts of Manila consist of long rows of thatched
huts raised about four feet from the ground on poles. The
sides of these houses are so arranged that they can be raised and
lowered like big awnings. The outskirts consist of the suburbs
of Ermita, Pasay, San Miguel, Santa Ana and a few others.
The Cock-Pit was the most novel place we visited. A large
market extends in front of the pit itself, and all sorts of pro-
duce are scattered on the ground. The buyers walk around in
this heap, haggling loudly for bargains, and create a general
din. We thought when we got to the pit we could be relieved
of the din and enjoy ourselves. Here, to our dismay, it was
even worse. We, in the vortex of an immense crowd, fou 'ht
for the entrances, and, once inside, could scarcely breathe. Fin-
ally we got seats. Two cocks were brought in, to whose right
legs cruel razor-like gaffs were fastened. When they were set
loose an awful uproar of shouts arose, caused by the animated
betting. Soon the cocks began to fight, jumping into the air and
striking with their gaffs. At the second charge, one was killed
in midair, while the other was so badly wounded that he died a
moment later. We beat a hasty retreat.
We next went to, or rather visited, Bilibid Prison. This is
one of the best conducted prisons in the Far East. Over five
thousand men and women are confined here, and taught useful
trades. Many of them become so attached to the prison that
they commit more offenses, on being released, in order to get
back again. A great deal of wonderful furniture and many
curios are made and sold at Bilibid.
A thunder storm at night in Manila is a wonderful spectacle.

about two feet wide, crashes. A moment later a roar that would
shame a battle comes upon one, and one jumps as if he were
hurt. Then a downpour of rain floods streets, gutters and gar-
dens, then all three-lightning, thunder and rain-come at the
same time. In about ten minutes the storm passes over, the
stars come outg a half an hour later everything is dry and tran-
uuil. A few distant echoes only, are heard, to remind one that
there has been a storm. About two of these storms occur each
Manila, as you see, is a most wonderful place to spend even a
short vacation, because of the many strange things to be seen

U OMORRUW7 never comes" is an oft repeated proverb,
but tolnorrow was coming, and the Sophomores
wished that it could not. On the morrow the Fresh-
man-Sophomore rugby ga111e was to be played. The
Freshmen were confident in their power, and the
fearful glares of their weaker superiors did not in the least
hinder their boasting.
The Sophomore captain and his Supreme Council of plotters
were holding a post mnrtem over the already despaired of game.
All but one were condemning heartily the ruling which pro-
hibited varsity men from playing inter-class ball. "lfs" and
"buts" in profusion were also supplied by the mourners. That
one who was not verbally disposing of all hopes, was pursing
his brow, holding his head, and going through all the prescribed
motions of one trying to work out a serious problem.
"Lot of help you're giving us, Fat," said one of the councilors.
'gHuh," grunted the solver of weighty problems, uyou aren't
helpin'. You're only killin' the only hopes you had left. l'm

"Oh look fellows," was the retort in preturbed awe, uFat,s

coroner's jury, he beckoned to the captain. That worthy left
the group, and approached the beaming, weighty solver of
weighty matters with a querulous look upon his face. The coun-
cilor whispered very energetically into his Captain's ear, and
after a very few moments the querulous look was replaced by
a smile. As the confab continued this finally broke into a
snicker, then a hearty laugh. Witli a knowing wink Captain
patted Fat on the back and solemnly declared the meeting

Precedent had established the Freshman-Sophomore games

Tomorrow had come. Although the sun rose as usual, school
took up in the same manner, and lessons went on per schedule,
still the sophomores knew that tomorrow had arrived. Each
Sophomore dolefully watched the minutes Hit mournfully by-
condemned men with no hope of pardon to come before the
time set for execution. Each Freshman gleefully chuckled as
the minutes slowly were passed by the solemn hands of the
I -l- T11 'R I- it R 41- R' it 'R' ll'
Before the game the Sophs solemnly filed in funereal order
from the dressing-rooms, keeping their eyes averted, that they
might not have to gaze upon the prophesied victors until
necessary. The game was called. The referee, a Senior, gave
the usual preliminary instructions.
"Remember fellows, this is a gentleman's game."
"Oh my, yes!"
"Nothing rough now!"
"Oh dear, no!
The whistle blew and the Freshmen kicked-off, the ball go-
ing high, the forwards rushed down the field just in time to
spill the fullback as he received the ball. When they had
retrieved the ball, being on the defensive, the Sophs knocked
to touch. Wllell the ball had been thrown in, the Freshmen
gained all they had lost, by a nassing rush. The captain of the
Sophs foresaw the massacre which was about to take place, so
he called Fat to one side, and whispered to him for a moment.
Smiling, Fat returned to his place, the ball was put into play.
The next time the ball was outside, Fat received the ball, and
immediately fell on it. As the players gathered around him a
terrific explosion was heard.
'4Fat's blown un!" said some one.
"No, no. lt's the ball!"
"Well, where is the ball?"
As Fat slowly arose, the ball was no place to be seeng sud-
denly a mingled shout of joy and wrath went up from the
grand-stand. A war whoop was heard from the Freshman goal-
posts. lmmediately every one turned in the direction of the
call, only to see the Captain leisurely extracting the flattened
ball from his sweater to touch it down and score a try.
"No score li'
"Great head workli' ..
The crowd surged around the referee, pulling and pushing
now one way and now another, making various demands.
"Let the play go on!"
5'Yes," said the referee, ulet the play go on."
The referee at last freeing one arm, threw it into the air,
crying, "Wait a minute. What have each of the Captains got
The Captain of the Sophs stated his case thus: HI have three
reasons for believing the thing was legitimate: first, there's noth-
ing against itg second, it was proper, and third, they would have
done the same thing."
4'Your arguments are very good," solemnly stated the referee.
The Captain of the Freshmen was satisfied with claiming
that a dead ball was a dead ball, and demanded justice.
The referee retired gracefully to read the rule book.
The crowd soon became impatient, and swayed over towards
the dressing-rooms. Not until called many times did the referee
finally show his face at one of the windows.
Immediately many cries arose.

"No try, etc."
The referee held up his hand for silence.

Once more the cries arose.
Finally silence being secured, he continued, "I have decided
to-resign," whereupon he ducked his head from the window
and refused to answer any further calls.
PAUL ST. SURE, '19,
l'in a dryad who lives i11 a tree,
In a tree standing lone by the shore.
And l've lived in this tree from the earliest time:
So lnlll sehooled in its runieal lore.
When the winter winds blow, l slip out of my tree
To rave with the gale-driven spray,
And l laugh with delight when a white crest rears high
Where the storm and the waves are at play.
When the young days of springtide are
With a robe of new green for my tree,
l tiptoe out to the edge of the town
To danee with the flowers in glee.
lilll a dryad fast bound in a tree,
ln a tree standing lone by the shore,
For Pan, lest you learn that a dryad still lives.
Has just bolted and hidden the door.

OUR years ago, in January, 1913, the present Higl1
Senior Class began its career in the High School. Of
course, we were looked upon with scorn and declared
the greenest of Freshmen classes, in spite of the fact
that we considered ourselves quite important and were
much interested in organizing our class. We lost no time in
showing our spirit by having our first class meeting, and elect-
ing the following ofiicers: President, Fred Terry, Vice-Presi-
dent, Helen Sanford, Secretary, Virginia Younger, Class Editor,
Bruce Dillman, Class Representatives, Ruth Heidt and Philip
As Low Sophs our green days were over, and our reputations
secure, we could therefore devote our entire time to the im-
provement of our minds. Our officers for this term were:
Foster Miles, President, Ruth Howe, Vice-President, Leland
Hauch, Secretary, Russell Medcraft, Class Editor, and William
Vaughan and Helen Sanford, Class Representatives.
Our High Sophomore Class met and organized in the fol-
lowing manner: President, William Vaughan, Vice-President,
Edith Corde, Secretary, Russell Medcraft, Class Editor, Eleanor
In our Low Junior term it was our duty to select pins. We
decided to change the style from that of the acorn design
usually accepted, and chose one which we believed to be the
finest so far produced. Again we elected officers. These were:
President, Russell Medcraft, Vice-President, Virginia Younger,
Secretary, Russell Moulthrop, Class Editor, Albert Gilliland,
Class Representatives, Helen Sanford and William Vaughan.
The term slipped by and we found ourselves High Juniors.
We decided not to give a dance, but to save our energy for our
Senior term when our activities would really commence. Our
class officers were: Albert Gilliland, President, Alma Halcrow,
Vice-President, Rudolph Buben, Secretary, Virginia Younger
and Russell Medcraft, Class Representatives.
At last, in January, 1916, the class reached the dignified
and exalted position of Seniors, and we entered upon our hap-
piest and busiest year. Immediately we elected officers. These
were: President, Rudolph Buben, Vice-President, Edith Corde:
Secretary, Norman Eckley, Treasurer, Marion Farrington, Class
Representatives, William Cathcart and Phoebe Winslow. As
usual, the girls of the class welcomed the Freshmen girls at the
Adelphian Hall. The program included an entertaining skit
entitled, "An Afternoon with the Dippidome Theatrical
Agency," which was greatly enjoyed by everyone. On February
11, we produced John Barrie's play, "Quality Street," the pro-
duction being coached by Mr. Fred Carlyle and managed by
William Vaughan so successfully that the class was able to
clear 3200. Our class is indeed a record breaker, this being the
greatest sum made up to that time at the Adelphian Hall for a
Senior production. Of the proceeds of the Senior play we,
early this term, gave the school 3100 to help purchase a moving
picture machine. Following the graduation exercises the class
gave an informal dance and supper to the graduates at the
home of Miss Elsie Bishop.
On .luly 31 we became High Seniors with land sighted and
our ship sailing straight for the harbor. Our officers were:
William Cathcart, President, Mignon Henrici, Vice-President,
Frank Young, Secretary, Rudolph Altona, Treasurer, Marion
Farrington, Class Editor. The class is now planning the details
of graduation and the Senior dance which we are looking for-
ward to with great anticipation, although we regret leaving
behind days which will become pleasant memories of work
made lighter by happy associations.

Lieutenant Now Walks on Easy
A vast fortune has been recent-
ly left to Lieutenant Gordon Hus-
sey, U.S.A., by a heretofore un-
known relative. He is now in-
dulging his fancy in diamond sun-
bursts and jewel studded swords,
exclusively. He has also presented
his charming young wife with an
exquisite tiara-cotta lavaliere.
CHILDHOOD ROMANCE CUL-
MINATES IN MARRIAGE.
News has come to us from
across the seas of the elopement of
Miss Marjorie Boyce, a Hungfajry
social service worker and a for-
eign missionary in Greece. This
has come as a great surprise to her
friends at home, who have just
learned of her latest escapade.

Early yesterday morning the
winner of numerous Turkish Tro-
phies, Alice Moran, Alameda's fa-
mous deep-sea diver, who has late-
ly won international recognition
in aquatic circles, and who has,
up to this time, been mistress of
the sea, was almost conquered by
the water. Her life was in peril
while she was practicing some new
Hungarian strokes in the bathtub.

Palm Beach, June 9.-The
smart set has adopted the latest
fashion set by Mr. Vaughan. He
was seen this morning on the
board-walk, wearing a classy chin-
chilla fur bow-tie. By noon a ma-
jority of the ultra-elite had taken
up the fad, which really started
when this social pet introduced,
for evening wear, fur cuffs to
match his ermine tie. Mr.
Vaughan has brought absolutely
the last word from London, and
has not, made such a sensation
since the races this season, on
which occasion he appeared in

cued several of the beach nuts.
A SCREAM ON THE SCREEN.
Miss Mildred Grifiitts has for-
saken the legitimate stage, and has
signed a five-year contract with
the Bitograft Moving Picture Co.
She portrays the part of the good

with her exceptional ability along

HE Administration takes this opportunity to extend its
appreciation for the loyal support rendered by the
faculty and the students this semester.
From the standpoint of activities it may well be said
that this semester has been a most successful one. The
students have rallied to the cause of the Motion Picture Machine
Fund by supporting the University of California Glee Club
Concert and the Monsen Lectures. Several classes also have
made contributions to the same fund, thus showing that the
proper spirit is not lacking. The Senior Play was a great suc-
cess, all records for attendance being broken. The Junior Class
revived the old custom of giving a dance, but this semester
admission was charged, and the proceeds devoted to the Motion
The Oak Leaf has become an established school activity,
and has not only financed itself this semester, but has paid a
deficit left from last term's issue, thus proving the popularity
of the publication.
The concert given under auspices of the Star and Key was a
delightful entertainment, and the money has been turned over
to a noble causeg namely, the Star and Key Loan Fund.
The expenses of Athletics have been heavy, as the football
team had to be supported. All students not having A. S. A. H. S.
cards were required to pay admission to the league games.
This system has helped the school financially, and it is
hoped that the same may continue next semester. At the pres-
ent time it is difficult to state just how much the present admin-
istration will leave in the treasury, but we sincerely hope that
this term may end as successfully as the preceding one.

was finally selected as the most suitable for presenta-

of the term.

working out successfully. A great deal of enthusiasm has been

Two High Freshman girls, Winifred Aydelotte and Marion

and the girls decided on rings to show their class spirit.
The class, as a whole. has a great deal of school spirit, and
a bright future is looked forward to by all its members.

This year's Freshman Class started in at once witl1 the
avowed purpose of developing to the highest degree the real
Alameda High School spirit, and it determined to make the
class of '20 one to be remembered. In September, the Senior
girls gave the class a splendid reception with vaudeville and
dancing. The warm welcome did a great deal to make the new
class feel that it was in reality part of the High School life.

The Freshmen are full of enthusiasm, and aim to do their
share in whatever they can, for the school in general and for
their class in particular. They are planning a candy sale to
take place in the near future, the proceeds to be used to help
purchase a moving picture machine for the school. The en-
thusiasm thus far shown makes it apparent that our future
undertakings will prove more than successful.
IME and results show! Since its organization, April
22, 1914-, the City Schools' Savings System has grown by
leaps and bounds. The deposits now total over seven
thousand dollars, while the number of open accounts
has increased to over two thousand. Once again Alameda has
Schools from all parts of California have inquired into the
A. H. S. system, and have adopted its methods with good re-
sults. From year to year we have improved our system until
now it is practically flawless. During the summer vacation. Mr.
Evans, the manager of the savings department, conferred with
the state bank inspectors, and the changes which were recom-
mended by them have been adopted. Each depositor now has
three duplicates of his or her account: one at the school in
which the deposit is made, another at the high school branch,
and another at the bank proper. The banking laws which make
us a branch of the Alameda and Citizens Savings Banks also hold
these banks liable for every cent deposited through the Savings
System. Both the manager and cashier of the City Schools
Savings System are required to go under bond. The system in
which our books are checked against each other renders it al-
most impossible to make an error. Each student of banking
has certain duties to perform, and at the end of the day the
postings are checked and audited.
The grammar schools have taken an increased interest in
bringing up the total deposit of their respective schools. It has
been gratifying to the officers of the bank to see so many new
accounts opened and enlarged, as it shows that the bank is ac-
complishing its purpose, and is making it worth while for the
students. An account opened in grammar school, and increased
through the school career., becomes an appreciated deposit
It has been due to the untiring efforts of Mr. Evans, when
various problems arose, that the bank is still in operation., and
he certainly deserves the enthusiastic and generous support of
the entire student body for the department which he organized.
The boys have also advanced many new ideas which are now bc-
ing used with excellent results. Donit be a knockerg boost the

The banking force which assisted Mr. Evans, and gave their
conscientious support to the bank this term consists of Rudolph
Altona, cashierg Roy Stulz, assistant cashier: Foster Miles,
Willianl Wahmutll, Alice Moran, Louise Croll. and Harold

The Bean Feeds
T was in the year 1910 that the Bean Feeds at the Y. M. C.
A originated. At this time the 'ifeedsn were for Oakland
Schools onlyg but in 1913, owing to the fact that we did
not have any Y. M. C. A. in our city, it was decided to let
Alameda High take part in the ufeastsf, Last year three
hundred different fellows attended over one-third of the ses-
sions. During this year three tons of beans were devoured by
the High Schools, along with an ample amount of slaw., buns,
doughnuts, cake and chocolate.
The purpose of these "feeds" is to have the students meet
together in their discussion rooms. Here, after a hearty sup-
per, problems which every High School fellow meets with are
discussed. The Alameda group is under the supervision of Mr.
Caldwell. The students are favored now and then with
addresses by different teachers.
Among some of the best were those by Doctor Thompson,
Mr. Smith, Mr. Coan, and the talk on will-power by Mr. Carpen-
After the discussion groups, the boys enjoy the privileges
of the swimming tank, the pool room, the bowling alleys and
the boys' game room.
The oiiicers for the Senior and Junior group are as follows:
President, Rudolph Bubeng Secretary, Will Gill, Yell Leader,
William Vaughan, Advertising Committee, Leslie Mclver and
Robert Lamborn. The oflicials for the uSophs" and 6'Freshies"
are as follows: President, Richard Schliewienskyg Vice-presi-
dent, Frances Gravesg Yell Leader, ,I ack Moran.

The Cirlsi Glee Club
HE Girls' Glce Club resumed practice rather late in the
term, because of the delayed return of their leader,
Miss McDermott. Despite this fact, they are very en-
thusiastic: and have been attending regular practice.
New members have been added, selected from Miss
lVlcDermott's choral class. They are: Bonita Hunt, Maybelle
WOTlllEll, Gladys Petry, and Claudine Brandt.
The future plans of the club have not been made public yet,
but as usual the girls will participate in several programs. Miss
McDermott has obtained sevcral carefully choscn songs. which
the members hope to present on these various occasions. 'l'hc
club has been organized long enough now to havc cstablishccl a
reputation, which its members are earnestly cnclcavoring to
maintain. Competition with the newly organized Boys' Glcc
Club is another incentive for the girls.
Under their leader's judicious guidance the girls hope to
advance considerably in ability and accomplishment.
Ollieers of the A. H. S. Cadets
D. Osborn M. McKimmins
HE plan of having cadets at Alameda High School was
first introduced in 1914, and under the direction and
command of John Ganser, two companies were formed
in that year. Witll the assistance of Leland Sweeney
the rudiments of disciplinary drill were taught, but
since no arms could he obtained, tl1e cadets soon lost interest.
As a result, the organization of cadets at Alameda High School
C. Youngberg M. Loring
F. Miles G. Nordlund F. Terry
In January, 1915, the cadets were re-organized, and Harold
Kahn was elected captain. lnstead of the one company, two
companies turned out. so that it was necessary to have a major.
Foster Miles successfully passed the examination for major,
and has since held that position very ably.
This term we hope, with the aid of the Citizens' Club, to
have new rifles, uniforms which will be the property of the
Q. M. Department, first-aid and heliograpll equipment. Further-

more. plans are being lllilfle so that two full days each term may
be devoted entirely to military, and this will certainly be a great
help toward creating interest in the cadets.
In the early part of this term, due to the poor arrangement
of the drill periods. many found it very difficult and almost
impossible to turn out. Now. since this has been changed, there
is no reason why every boy in the school should not take part
in military. or. at least. give the cadets the support they need.
Now. here is something which, without a doubt, very few
fellows have ever considered. Did you, personally, ever stop
to think of the great benefits to be derived from a military
training? Did you ever think how training of this sort would
make you respond quickly and accurately to a command. how
it would give you mental as well as physical training, how it
would promote self-reliance. bring about a more perfect co-
ordination betwcen mind and body, and give you a good start
in the knowledge of military tactics? Very likely you have
never considered any of the above points: however. if you have
considered them, and aren't convinced, turn out with the cadets
and you will be convinced.
The Star and Key Society
HE Star and Key Society, with an even larger enroll-
ment than last term, has planned and accomplished
many things under its capable and enthusiastic presi-
dent, Reginald Vaughan. The meetings have been well
attended, and all members have done their best to
make this term one of the best ever known by the society.
During this term, new pins for the society were procured,
though they retain their original design, they are of a much
better and clearer cut and are considerably improved in appear-
ance. They are of solid gold in place of the plated gold used
previously, and instead of the green stone there is now a pearl.
Those who have purchased the new pins are very much pleased
The loan fund of the society, for the purpose of lending
money to the graduates of Alameda High School who desire to
enter college, has taken on a new interest, and the pupils of the
entire school are doing all they can toward increasing it. A
splendid entertainment, arranged by Russell Medcraft, was
given at Washington School during the early weeks of the term.
The proceeds, about sixty dollars, will be added to the loan
During this term, the membership of the society has attained
a very high standard. Let's all work to keep it up and make it
even higher next term!

The Astronom Club
HE purpose of the club is to promote interest in astron-
olny among its members. and to aid them in studying
that interesting subject. The meetings are held in the
lecture rooln of the annex, at seven o'cloek, Thursday
evenings. The activities are ably directed by Miss
Hewett, who has succeeded in obtaining for the members per-
mission to visit many of the places of astronomical interest near
This term, the club has gone to the University of California,
where it has seen the telescopes and other instruments belong-
ing to the University: and has visited one of the fifteen largest
telescopes in the world, situated at Leona Heights. At the regu-
lar Thursday evening meetings at the sehool, when the sky was
clear. observations of the moon and planets have been taken.
At the meetings, the regular business is first attended to: the
remainder of the evening being devoted to observation and dis-
cussion of this lnost ancient of sciences. .-K new constitution
has been adopted. The officers elected in the spring for this
term are as follows: President. Lily Anderson: Yice-l'residcnt,
Emily lialoge: Secretary and Treasurer, Homer Kt'lllilil'1 Direc-
tor, Miss Hewett.
Miss Hewett has been doing fine work in connection with tht-
club's study of astronomy. Her generous devotion of tilne out-
side of school hours to the clubis welfare has well nicritcd the
praise given her by the members.
The organization has seen the need for good instruments
and other equipment, and is working hard to hring in the neces-
sary funds. It is hoped that the tower to be erected on Porter
School will be available for observation work. But even with
their limited equipment the members are enthusiastic about the
work, and are learning much that will he a great help to thcnl
should they study astronomy later.
GREAT deal of enthusiasm has been shown this year
in the Alameda High rooting section. uEVerybody
out," was the slogan, and it certainly produced results.
The girls turned out in exceedingly creditable num-
bers, thus showing splendid spirit.
At every preliminary game there was a good, but not large
rooting section. For every league game special cars trans-
ported the rooters to the field of battle, and there they vied
with the other schools in noise making. Previous to every
frame, there was a yell rally. Many supported these, but there
were a great many who did not attempt to let their voices
loose. A large bonfire rally was held the night before the
cham ionship game with Berkeley High: on this occasion good
speeches and novel stunts were given and the new yells
ln closing, I wish to thank the Student Body of Alameda
High School for the excellent support rendered me and the
fine sportsmanlike attitude shown at the games.

WINNER OF GOLD MEDAL WINNER OF SILVER MEDAL
EBATING ln the Alameda High School entered upon
a new era of activity when, on Medal Night of
last term, six members of the debating society met
in contest for the Jesse Robinson Debating Med-
als. These six members constituted the Medal
Team which had been chosen through a series of preliminary
contests in which more than twenty pupils had taken part. In
debating the question of Compulsory Military Service in the
United States, the members of the Medal Team were arranged

Fitting indeed it seems, at a time when women are awaken-
ing to a greater interest in civic allairs, and with the enthusi-
astic support of the girls of the school in general, that the girls
of the team should have carried away the honors of the even-
ing. However, the contest was close, and Miss Aydelotte and
Miss Schneider in winning the gold and silver medals respect-
ively, received trophies won only through persistent and untir-
Through the generosity of Mr. Robinson, who has established
these medal contests, and with the encouragement of the mem-
bers of the faculty debating committee, who have debating at
heart, this activity has risen to take its place with the foremost
activities of the school. In addition to the regular work of the
Debating Club, this semester has seen further progress in the
way of the organization of separate boys' and girls' Debating
Societies, in which training is given not only in debating. but
also in parliamentary law.

The Oak Leaf
HREE terms ago the Class in Journalism undertook
the editing and publishing of The Oak Leaf, a self-
supporting school paper which tends to bring about a
closer relation between fellow-students. The Oak
Leaf is a benefit to the student body, and provides
practical and up-to-date knowledge of newspaper work for the
.lournalism Class. Such a publication shows the parents what
the High School is accomplishing.
Four editions of The Oak Leaf, with a possible special fifth
number, are published this term for the nominal price of
twenty-five cents. Formerly the Administrative Board was
given the privilege of electing a Manager who held that position
throughout the semester for the sake of simplifying business
arrangements. Now, however, The Oak Leaf is under the super-
vision of the journalism Class, which appoints, by election at
the beginning of each term, an Editor and Business Nlanager,
who hold their respective offices duringthe school tf'l'Ill. The
Editor-in-Chief names his assistants for each new issue. This
system affords experience in journalistic work for thc editorial
staff. Each member registered in the course has the oppor-
tunity of writing an article or editing a section at some time
during the term.

AN INTERIOR CIRCULATION.
There was a fat heathen
Two men he had eaten
On the banks of the overflowed Nile.
Said the heathen in glee,
HI have had a fine tea,"
And he patted his belt with a smile.
He grinned as he said,
'4These men, tho, they're dead,
Have left me some relics outside,
For this fine pair of teeth
Will do in a wreath
To encircle my eighty-ninth bride."
But a tiger had heard
And contentedly purred
As he opened his jaws very wide.
So the poor black's last yell
And the false teeth as well
Now encircle the tiger inside.

School Auditorium, Friday evening, November 3.
The college songs, the humorous stunts and vaudeville acts
amused everyone, and the lively dance music after the show
made nimble the toes of many a youth.
The Ways and Means Committee handled the affair with
Fred Terry as student manager, the proceeds going to thc
Motion Picture Fund.
Frederick Monsen Lectures
"Vanishing Indian Trails" and "Norway" were the subjects
of illustrated lectures given by Frederick Monsen on the even-
ings of September 26, and October 3 respectively, for the pur-
pose of enlarging the Motion Picture Machine Fund.
The lectures were intensely interesting and instructive, and
as usual, Mr. Monsen's pictures were wonderful. The two enter-
tainments were under the direction of the Music and Lecture
Committee with Miss Garretson as chairman, assisted by A.
Gilliland and R. Buben as student managers.
The Bonfire Bally
The greatest student rally ever held in Alameda was the
bonfire rally held Hallowe'en night, the evening before the
championship game with Berkeley.
The bonfire, the material for which was piled over twenty
feet high, was set off at half-past seven amid the applause of
hundreds of students and parents. Yells and songs were given,
speeches were made and an effigy of Berkeley's team was burned
on the pile. The searchlights arranged by Fred Terry and
Foster Miles added whatever was needed in the way of the
spectacular. Major Tilden, Alameda's greatest football fan,
Dr. Thompson, Coach Rittler, President Holden and Captain
Latham were among the speakers. Albert Brooks, Walter Den-
nison and Walter Cramer sang, accompanied by the banjo.
The girls assisted financially by selling candy. After the pro-
gram the boys serpentined around the town.
The entire affair was one big burst of whole-hearted en-
thusiasm and indeed it was so thoroughly enjoyed by all that
we believe that the Bonfire Rally will be a customary celebra-
tion for Hallowe'en night.
The F reshman's plight,
Is a pitiful sight,
He works and he works all the day.
Each teacher he fears,
And he quakes 'neath the leers
Of the other kids, care-free and gay.
With the Sophomore stage,
He begins to rage
'Gainst the virtue of Studying Hard.
And he feels the elation
Which results in a Red-Spotted Card.
The Junior's quite bold,
For he feels he's now old,
And he cares not a damn if he,s rough!
He's proud that he shaves,
And of Zingg's joint he raves,
Getting by, if he can, with a Bluff. W
But the Senior quiets down,
And recalls with a frown,
The hours that he's fooled away,
And the moral is this,
If you'd have Senior bliss,
You will work all four years of the way!

N August 2, Captain Latham issued the call to colors,
and was overwhelmed by the showing. Manager
"Bish" was there in his famous undershirt, and,
among the likely looking material from last year's
second team, "Flicks" Mehan, uReckless" Macliiae,
nShag" Moore, "Dwi" Jorgenson, uGopher" Smith, Tommy
Bacon. and Willie Jacobs looked to be the class.
There were lllkllly Vacancies on tl1e team due to graduation
and matters looked none too bright, considering that not a
back field man was left. Merle Horton, who last year played
with Cogswell, registered at A. H. S., and has helped wonder-
fully. There are many other candidates who are doing well, and
will very likely be called upon to do service. They are 'afjlliel'
Searing. "Aidey" Chase, uHeinie" lVlcNutt, 'l'hornton, Hussey
and Bill Cathcart.
The way things stand now, the team is not very flashy or
brilliant. but for steadiness and reliability it can not be beaten.
Vlfhen Otto Rittler gets started, and the boys round to form, look
out you pig-skin followers of other schools!
ALAMEDA 23 COGSWELL 5
Keep up the good work, Alameda, and run through the rest
of the schools in the same way. Right at the kick-off the
Alameda forwards ruslled the ball into Cogswellls territory, and
a try followed in tllree minutes. Cogswell,s team showed no
knowledge of football and was playing the man continually
instead of the ballg consequently there was much fighting. Six
more tries were made during the rest of the game, and only one
of them was converted. This means the loss of many pointsg
so practice up in your placement kicking. Alameda. Much
FUOTJ E3 'lLL"J
credit is due to the team for its grand showing. Considering
the fact that Bacon and McNutt are graduates from the third
team to the first, and "Ollie" Searing and Buben have never
played before, the team played with great smoothness. Especial
credit is due to the backfield, which was so light and inexperi-
enced that everyone was pitying it. What weight and experi-
ence is needed will be made up by the fighting spirit which has
always made Alameda famous.
ALAMEDA 3 LOWELL 5
It was a hard game to lose., as Lowell only outplayed us in
the first five minutes of the game. Alameda's only points were
gained from the educated toe of Harry Moore, who drop-kicked
the ball between the bars on a free kick. Alameda's forwards
kept right on the ball all the time, and sure had Lowell worried
during the second half, as she was kept on the defensive most
of the time. The stars of the game were: Horton, f'Gopher"
Smith and Bacon, in the back-field, Macliae and Latham, ill
ALAMEDA 50 COMMERCE 0
In a game devoid of anything peppy aside from crabbing,
Alameda snowed-under the S. F. High School of Commerce.
Commerce showed much inexperience not only in a lack of
knowledge of the rules, but in not playing its positions. Alameda
went had in the first half, due to much fumbling and off-side
"Capt" Latham went in tl1e game at front-rank in the second
half, and immediately Alameda took a brace. The backfield
was going so well that if the game had lasted ten minutes more
the score would have been fabulous. "Gopher" Smith, McNutt.,
Bishop and '6Skib" Edinger, the referee, were the stars.
ALAMEDA 0 COGSWELL 0
Alameda went into the field so overconfident that it was lucky
to come off with an even break. The scrum men were loafing
all the time, and the backfield was playing too much of an
individual game. Time and time again a single Cogswell man
would break through without any effort. Cogswell showed
much improvement over its last appearance, but was not playing
as clean a game as possible. Latham, Bishop, Jorgenson,
MacRae and Smith were always on the job for Alameda.
ALAMEDA 14 PALO ALTO 8
In one of the fastest games played this season, our hopefuls
downed Palo Alto High at Lincoln Park. Alameda kicked off,
and from a line-out Moore scored. Palo alto dropped-out, and
after several minutes Mehan went over. Both these tries Ala-
meda failed to convert, but the forwards were packing around
the ball and they experienced little difficulty in scoring. The
prettiest play of the game started in mid-field when Moore broke
loose and passed to Latham. Latham ran several yards, passed
back to Moore and he in turn passed again to Latham, who
scored. "Ollie" Searing converted from a difiicult angle. Ala-
meda's last score came when Horton went over the line near
the end of the half. This made the score 14 -0 at the end of
the first half.
Palo Alto started right off in the second half when its for-
wards heeled the ball out to its speedy three-quarter line, a try
resulting. Greene converted, making the score 14 - 5. The ball
traveled back and forth until Palo Alto procured the ball in the
center of the field, and ran through the Alameda back-field,
scoring a try but failing to convert. This ended the scoring, but
the Palo Alto three-quarter line was always in action, and put
many scares into the hearts of the Alamedans by its speed.
Alameda presented a slightly changed line-up. Cathcart was
seen at half-back, McKean at first-five, and Searing in front-rank.
All did well.
Especial credit is due to the Alameda scrum, which out-
hooked and out-played Palo Alto at every angle of the game.
Captain Latham was the individual star of the game. He was
seen everywhere all the time, and his blocking of Palo Alto's
kicks saved many yards for Alameda.
The back-field for Alameda worked well in the first half, but
in the second it simply fell to pieces before the attack of Palo
Alto. Many easy tackles were missed and the good work of the
forwards in following up the play at all times, saved Alameda.
This game showed where Alameda was weak, and Coach
Rittler declares that when the back-field gets a little practice
it will make a good scoring machine.
ALAMEDA 4 STOCKTON 6
Un September 23. the Alameda team boarded the train at
Fruitvale, and journeyed to Stockton. The game was scheduled
for 2 p. ln.. but did not start until nearlv three. All this time
our boys were waiting in a blistering sun and, after the long
train ride, our team was all in.
Stockton swept it off its feet at the start and, in five minutes,
scored. Another try was added to Stockton,s score in the first
half. Neither of the tries were converted, making the score 6 - 0.
This ended the scoring for Stockton, and Alameda started to
find itself. From a long line-out inside of Stockton's 25-yard line
Mehan procured the ball, and passed to Horton who placed a
beautiful drop-kick between the bars, netting Alameda 4 points.
This made the score 6 - 4 in favor of Stockton and Alameda was
gaining steadily. It rushed the ball down to Stockton's 5-yard
line, and "Gopher'7 Smith went over the line, but was called
back because the referee did not see the play.
Alameda was always close to scoring, but never could quite
cross the line, because of the excellent defensive work of the
Stockton forwards who were always on the ball with their heads
Much dirty play was in evidence, and many injuries were
sustained. Bill Cathcart had the skin above his eye badly torn.
and "Heinie" McNutt's side was so badly hurt that he could not
continue the game.
This was the first appearance of GSkib" Edinger in the Ala-
meda line-up and, although he did not break loose at any time,
his speed showed to advantage. Merle Horton seemed to find
himself, and made several spectacular plays. He also broke
loose once, and was not downed until he reached Stockton's
5-yard line. uMick,, McCurrie did good work among the for-
wards, and Tom Bacon played a heady game at wing.
ALAMEDA 3 FREMONT 0
In one of the most thrilling and hardest fought games of the
season, Alameda succeeded in gaining a victory over Fremont
High 3-0. It was our first league game, and it was a hard
earned victory. The score until the last ten minutes of play
stood 0 - 0 and everyone was on his toes. The ball was outside
at Fremont's 5-yard line. "Skib,' Edinger threw the ball ing
Tom Bacon ran in front of the line-out, and took the ball for a
few yards, then passed back to Edinger, who crossed the line
for the only score of the game.
Both teams played exceedingly well, and Fremont's lack of
condition was the main cause of her defeat. Brooks, her star
full-back, was injured in the last half after he had played a
plucky game. He had to be carried off the field.
Fremont attempted to play a very open game, but Alameda's
forwards were working so well that Fremont hardly ever had
the hall. When the Fremont forwards heeled the ball out
Alamedais breaks were on the ball, and the Fremont half-back
was always smothered.
Bishop, "Aidey"' Chase, Edinger and "Flicks" Mehan were
the stars of the locals, making many spectacular plays. '6Mac"
Chase was seen in an Alameda suit, and showed that he sure
had the speed. Bill Cathcart played a fine game at half-hack,
despite the injuries sustained at Stockton from which he had
This was the first game this season that Alameda's back-field
has got started, and now watch outg for Otto Rittler has de-
veloped a strong scoring machine.
ALAMEDA 18 OAKLAND 3
On Saturday, September 30, our huskies assembled on the
State League Baseball Field at F ifty-eighth and Grove Streets,
and gave Oakland High its first defeat of the season. It was
more than a defeat, it was a drubbing. At the end of the game
the Oakland men were so tired that they could hardly stand.
Oakland kicked-off, and the ball was dribbled back and forth
until from a scrum-down, Smith passed to Thornton, Thornton
to Horton, and Horton to "Mac" Chase who tucked the ball
under his arm and ran 35 yards before he was stopped on Oak-
land's 5-yard line. Both teams' forwards packed around the
ball but, finally, "Aidey" Chase broke loose and scored under
the goal posts. "Shag,' Moore converted, making the score 5 - 0.
Here Oakland took a brace, and carried the ball down into
Alameda's territory. Both teams were fighting hard, but Oak-
land seemed to have the advantage. After ten minutes more of
play Oakland carried the ball over the line, but failed to con-
vert, making the score 5 - 3, Alameda leading. Alameda
dropped-out and, after five minutes more, the half ended. Oak-
land was going well, and Alameda seemed to lack confidence.
Otto Rittleris talk between the halves must have started
something, for Alameda went in with new pep, and kept rushing
the ball into Oakland's territory. On Oakland's 25-yard line
HSkib,' Edinger scooped the ball, and worked his way through a
scattered field, scoring Alameda's second try. Moore converted,
making the score 10 - 3.
Losing took all the fight out of Oakland, and, after this,
Alameda had no difficulty in crossing Oakland's line.
"Aidey" Chase scored two tries, showing that the forwards
can make scores as well as the back-field. Mehan and Edinger
Alameda's back-field was a happy surprise. Every time it
would get the ball, it would advance toward Oakland's line.
Not only did it play a good offensive game, but starred on the
"Rus,' Thornton, a Portland boy, was seen at first five, and
he certainly knew how to break up Oakland's plays. The Chase
brothers, Horton, and Edinger were the stars for the locals,
while the Atwater twins did well for Oakland. A serpentine
followed the game.
ALAMEDA 0 OAKLAND TECH 0
On October 5, at Fifty-eighth and Grove Streets, the football
teams from Alameda and Oakland Technical Schools battled to
a scoreless tie. At the end of the game the hall was about in
the center of the field, and the captains decided to play ten
A closer game was never played. Alameda kicked-off, and
the ball was rushed down to Tech's 25-yard line. Tech's for-
wards heeled the ball out, and Black passed to Starrett who ran
nearly to Alameda's line. He was downed, and the ball gradu-
ally found its way back to the center of the field. Alameda's
PAGE EI GHTY- SE VEN
forwards were packing around the ball in fine shape, and were
pushing Teclfs heavy scrum backward. Glues" Smith started the
back field with perfect passes to Thornton, but Tech's defense
was so strong that no scores resulted.
The first half ended with Tech a little the stronger. When
the second half was well under way it was evident that Alameda
had the condition. Never for any length of time was the ball
in one side,s territory. Both goals were always in danger, but
the timely work of the full-backs' educated toes always saved
the day. Many times Tech was close to scoring, due to the free
kicks awarded it. Starrett tried long drop kicks which were
unsuccessful. Only once did Alameda's back-field really get
started. Smith passed-out, and Jacobs finally got his hands on
the ball with a clear field ahead of him, but he'was not quite
fast enough to score.
The biggest scare that Alameda experienced was when Ala-
meda ftunbled, and the Tech forwards dribbled the ball up to
our 5-yard line. It looked like a sure score, but "Aidy" Chase
shot in from somewhere, scooped the ball clean, and found touch
on our 35-yard line. lt was a clever piece of work, and came
just in the nick of time.
Captain Latham played a wonderful game even though his
ankle was injured early in the game. Harry Moore was the star
in the line-outs, breaking through and spoiling many of Tech's
tag-back plays. "Skib" Edinger and Horton also starred.
The feature of Tech's play was the speed shown in her back-
field. Many times it started, and was stopped, due to our clever
defense. Black, of "Tech," was the kicking star of the game. His
long spirals will be remembered as the best ground gainers that
any high school lad has kicked in many a day.
It was a grand fight and, had it lasted another five minutes,
it sure would have been an Alameda victory.
ALAMEDA 0 SAN JOSE 8
It sure did take San Jose High to show the team a fine time.
Three machines met the boys at the depot, and took them to a
fine feed at the San ,lose High School. After lunch, a short
ride and a disastrous defeat at the hands of the Garden City
ruggers tells the tale.
The team made a miserable showing, not playing the game
it is capable of. Everything went wrong, due most likely to a
lack of pep. After the hard game with 'gTech" two days before
the fellows were lame, and could not get started.
Alameda kicked off, and rushed the ball down to San ,lose's
20-yard line where it was kept inside of San ,lose's 25-yard line
until near the end of the first half. At this point San ,Iose's
speedy backs scooped the ball, and ran the length of the field for
a try, which was not converted. This ill-fortune put fight into
Alameda, and the ball was again rushed into San ,lose's territory.
Both sides had much difficulty in finding touch, but Beaver's
long spirals were sure ground gainers.
The second half started with Cathcart replacing Smith at
half-back, and Smith was seen at first-five. This shift worked
wonders for a while, but Alameda wasn't there when a rush was
started from the middle of the field which netted San ,lose
another try. This they succeeded in converting, making the
score 8 - 0.
The fight could not be taken out of Alameda, so it rushed
the ball back into San Joseis territory, and we were always close
to scoring. When the final gun went off, the ball was on San
,Iose's 3-yard line from which their full-back found touch, ending
The absence of Captain Latham from the line-up was greatly
felt. He is a world of strength as a scrum man, but with his bad
ankle it was best not to use him. '6Lcs" Smith acted as field
captain, and performed well the duty of crabbing at the referee.
The star of the game was Les Bishop who, with a bad laceration
above the eye, would not be taken out of the game, although he
could hardly see because of blood. Horton and Jacobs also
San ,lose gives us the credit of instilling in its mind the idea
of showing the visiting team a good time, so let us continue to
treat our athletic guests as we would like to be treated.
ALAMEDA 3 BERKELEY 28
"We were beaten by a better team, and that is all there is
to it," were the words of Captain Latham at the end of the
game. "Everyone tried his hardest and fought until the final
The first half was all Alameda. The ball was inside of
Berke1ey's 25 yard line most of the time. From a loose ruck
on Berkeley's 39 yard line Bishop scooped the ball, and ran 25
yards through Berke1ey's scattered forwards. He was tackled,
but got his pass off to Captain Latham who crossed the line for
A1ameda,s only score. Moore failed to convert. Many chances
to score were lost in the first half. At the close of the first
half our team seemed to break up, and Berkeley ran the ball
down to our 5 yard line, where we held them for some time.
Finally, however, a Berkeley backfield man scooped the ball,
and crossed the line. Peterson converted just as the half ended,
making the score 5-3 in favor of Berkeley.
Still Alameda was going strong, and held Berkeley for the
first ten minutes of the second half. Then the weight began to
tell, and Berkeley scored another try, which Peterson con-
verted, making the score 10-3.
Alalncda was not bcatcn yet, and Mm-Currie dropped-oul.
The forwards followed up and Berkeley cross-kicked. Bill
Jacobs, who had just been sent into the game received the
punt, and ran 40 yards down the field. He was tackled: so hc
passed to ,lorgenson who was downed in his tracks. This
brought the ball down to Berkeley's 20 yard line, but slowly
it worked its way back to our end of the field, due to Berkclcy's
skill in dribbling and then scooping the ball.
From this time on Berkeley scored at will, and Petersons
conversions were little short of marvelous.
This was the final game of the season, and the whole team
put into the struggle every ounce of fight it had. The season
started with two veterans and no one ever thought that Ala-
meda would again reach the finals. It is needless to say that
she disposed of all comers, but Berkeley was too much for her.
Our backfield averaged not over 130 pounds, while Berkeley's
weighed in at about 150 pounds. This is some advantage, and
it is no wonder that Berkeley tired us out at the e11d.
Our scrums outplayed Berkeley all the time, and Bishop,
Latham, and Jorgensen were the stars. Bacon, Edinger, and
Smith played well in the backfield.
This team was a young bunch, and many are already plan-
ning to return to school next semester. So look out for 1917

The financial side of the football season was well cared for
by Lester Bishop, who was successful in having the most inex-
pensive football season in the High Scl100l's history. He cer-
tainly arranged a good schedule, and with the co-operation of
Coach Rittler has provided the students with many games on
the home grounds.
"Bisl1" is captain-elect next year, and is working hard already
to see that the Alameda High team of 1917 will be the cham-
pions of the A. C. A. L. and of the State. Good Luck! 6'Bish,"
to you and your team-mates of 1917.
HE Hblock Aw is given only to efficient athletes. there-
fore it is a great honor to wear one.
To win a "block A" in football, baseball. or haskct-
ball. one must be a member of an Alameda High team
which wins a championship. It is a great feat to heat
such teams as Berkeley and Oakland Tech., whose student body
is three times as large as ours. indeed it has not been accom-
plished for many years. consequently no "A's".
To win a hblock A" in track and swimming. an Alameda
High athlete must place first in an A. C. A. L. or a C. I. F. meet
or any league meet where not less than Eve high or preparatory
schools are competing.
The spring term of 1916 was notable in Alameda High ath-
letic circles for the awarding of 'Gblock A's" to Andrew Town-
send and Felix Mehan. Mehan first won l1is 'EAN in a C. I. F.
swimming lneet at Piedmont Baths, where he placed first in the
breast stroke. Later in the term Mehan repeated his feat in
the A. C. A. L. meet. Andy Townsend won the plunge for dis-
tance, and placed second in the 440 yard swim.
These were the first 'gblock A's" awarded in Alameda High
School for three years and. what is more, they are the first las
far as ascertainableb ever awarded for aquatic athletics.

The Merritt Marathon
UE mainly to the energy and perseverance of our ath-
letic director, Otto Rittler, Alameda High School won
the first prize in the Oakland Tribune's Merritt Mara-
thon for the number of runners entered and finished.
The race, which was held on the shores of Lake
Merritt, took place on September 9, Admission Day. Of the
fifty-two Alameda students who entered, every one crossed the
line before the time limit expired, and was accordingly awarded
a silver bar commemorative of the day's feat.
To Robert Burns, a Sophomore, fell the honor of being the
first Alameda student to breast the tape, and he thereby won
the silver medal offered by the Administrative Board of this
school. The course of the race was twice around Lake Merritt,
a distance of six and one-quarter miles. Quite a jog, you will
agree, but the local lads never f altered once in their triumphant
march over such a gruelling path.
Mr. Rittler was the clerk-of-course of the race, and the beau-
tiful cup won by Alameda was a fitting tribute to the industry
and co-operation he manifested in attending to and filing regis-
tration blanks, entrance blanks, fees, etc. The splendid spirit
of loyalty displayed by our runners is certainly worth of lauda-
tion, for they went into the enterprise in the right manner and
On the Friday following the race, the student body convened
in the Assembly Hall to witness the presentation of the trophies.
Joseph R. Knowland, the editor of the Oakland Tribune, pre-
sented the high school entry trophy, a large silver cup to Presi-
dent Holden. ln his presentation speech Knowland declared it
was a distinct pleasure for him to present a trophy to his home
town's high school.
Otto Rittler then gave out the silver bars to the runners, and
Robert Burns received his medal from Dr. Thompson. After a
talk by Walter Christie of the University of California on track
sports the meeting adjourned.
The following were awarded silver bars:
Robert D. Burns

ROSPECTS never looked brighter for a successful base-
ball season than for the season of 1917. Such athletes
as 5'Skib" Edinger, 'GAidy,' Chase, George Prickett,
Wllacki' Bruzzone. 'llllacn Chase and usllilgw Moore are
sure to return to school. '4Bcrt', Goodwin, our star left
fielder and pitcher of the 1916 team was elected to captain the
1917 squad, and will be there with his trusty willow, which
makes our opposing pitchers quail. "Fuzzy" Chase is a transfer
from St. Ignatius High School where he was the heaviest hitter
on the team. He swings from the left side, so that right field
fence at Lincoln Park will always be in danger of being knocked
down. Francis Neilson is another port side swinger and looks
to be a cinch in the outfield. At present, the catching depart-
ment seems woefully weak because of the loss of ,loe Kancy. but
'GFat,, Latham has the qualifications and only needs experience.
Last spring the second team met all comcrs. and was success-
ful i11 defeating Berkeley, Oakland and Fremont. 'lille mcn
were awarded German A's for heading the league. These ath-
letes can be counted on to fill in the places left by graduates:
so look out some of you veterans, for they will work hard to
uproot you from your positions.
Wiith so formidable a combination at hand and so com-
petent a captain, everything looks bright for a winning season.
For the last tllree years we have been nosed out of champion-
ships. and now our blood is up, so to speak, and we are out to
defeat our league rivals. '

Girls' Tennis Club
OES a prosperous and successful spring ter111 of girls'
athletics mean that the girls shoulfl retire from the
scene until the next spring? lt iilIl0lllliS to almost this.
what has hecome of girls' athletics this term? Last
term the girls were very active, hut now there seems
to he either a lack of interest or comlitions are not favorable.
It is true that the spring semester affords more pleasant weather
for outdoor sports. but if the spirit is there. some incloor sports
coulcl be substituted during the fall term. Schools that are not
much larger, if any. than ours, linrl plenty of material aml spirit
among the girls to form basketball. hasehall, tennis aml swim-
ming teams to meet other schools.
ln spite of the fact that Alamefla is an islaml. and like all
islamls, surroumleil by water, there are not more than one or
two who could rcpresent the school if it were challenged for a
swimming race. Wliaxt material we have is good, but that ma-
terial is apparently very scarce. Alice Moran, the most note-
worthy swimming star of Alameda High, leaves this term with
the graduating class. It would benefit the school if a good team
of girls could be organized. During the first part of this term
when the weather was suitable for swimming, proper accommo-
dations could not be procured. A plan to co-operate with the
Encinal Yacht Club did not meet with the approval of the Board
of Directors of that club. However, the management of Pied-
mont Baths has offered special advantages and reduced rates to
those who have A. S. A. H. S. cards, so why need the fall weather
stop this activity?
Another sport. which proved to be quite popular last term
and which was affected by the failure of the plan to co-operate
with the Encinal Yacht Club, is rowing. Rowing was very suc-
cessful last term, Lake Merritt being the scene of practice. As
it is almost a half hour's ride to the lake, and the bay is so close
at hand, it was thought that it would be more advantageous to
row in Alameda, and so no crew was to be organized until
arrangements could be made for a starting place. Each of the
Uakland schools, both High and Grammar, have two, three, and
four crews. Alameda can not afford to lose her good reputa-
tion: so let us hope to see some activity along these lines in the
Tennis seems to be the only sport which has kept alive.
Only ten girls signed up, but the decrease in number is probably
due, at least in part, to the fact that no credit is given. How-
ever. those who did sign up have the proper spirit, and there
surely are some good players among them. The members of the
tennis club are:
Winifred Aydelottc Ruth Jackson
Claudine Brandt Anita Martine
Eileen Eyre Marian Martine.
Margaret Hyde Gladys Nobmann
Martha Hyde Margaret Spruance
The tennis tournaments have aroused a great deal of enthusi-
asm and interest. Because of the difficulty in keeping the rec-
ords of the tennis players, it was decided not to give credit for
tennis until an accurate system could be evolved. At a meeting
of the active members of the tennis club. Gladys Nobmann was
elected captain for this term. Miss Nobmann intends to chal-
lenge the schools around the bay, hoping to be able to defeat
them. Last term was a most active one in tennis circles. our
school playing a series of tournaments with the Girls' High in
San Francisco. An inter-class tournament was held August 22.
23, and 24. The winners andytheir scores were as follows:

the score 6-4, 4-6, 8-6. The playing of the finals decided that the
school would be represented in doubles by Willifrefl Aydelotte
and Marion Martine or Martha Hyde and Gladys Nobmann, and

versity girls' baseball team, it was decided to organize in order
that we might accept the challenge. Mr. Rittler put the matter
in charge of Irene Williamson, and the following sixteen girls
Martha Hyde Elsie Morgan
Gladys Nobmann Doris Haslam
Elizabeth Garrett Heartsease Barkley
Alice Teague Winifred Aydelotte
Frances Seward Lillian Barry
Louise Croll Leona Fleckenstein
Olga Baehr Margaret Hyde
Ruth Crane Estelle Schmidt
Out of these, a team will be picked to meet the Stanford
girls. As yet, the date for the game has not been set. It is
possible that Alameda High will challenge some of the San
Francisco High School teams, in which case, our girls will rely
on the loyal support of the entire school.
Although, heretofore, basketball has been considered a spring
term sport, it is coming to the front this term as well. Mr.
Rittler announced that the first and second period girls' athletic
classes would play each other at basketball, and the sixth and
seventh period classes would do likewise. Then the winners
were to play for first place and the losers, for second place.
A plan is on foot for inter-class basketball, also, and it is said
that six or seven classes have already selected their teams.
Games between the various rooms will probably take place near
the end of the term.
Our school is steadily growing, and let us all hope, with each
successive term, to see our school better represented in all
branches of girls' athletics.

ANSWERS T0 CORRESPONDENTS.
Dr. Thompson-No, I would not advise you to re-
move your mustache. It will be hard to stand com-
ment for a while, but it is to your own interest that
you wear a calm and dignified expression at all times.
Phil Holden-By no means, you must break it to
her gently. I would advise you to purchase Dr. Heart's
new book, "Relief for the Lovelornf' It treats of the
same symptoms as occur in your case.
Geo. Prickett-Your question is hard to answer. If
she really would take you, why don't you propose and
have it over?
Frank Young-It is hard to say. Mr. Minium is not
very lenient with his marks. I would advise you to be
prepared for the worst.
Martha Linderman-If you are suddenly called
upon to recite during a delicious tete-a-tete, feign deaf-
ness. It never fails.
Sunday School Teacher-Felix, what kind of boys
go to heaven?
Felix Mehan fwho has been sound asleepb-Ah-h-h!
Martha dropped her eyes to the floor as Edric burst
into the room. Her face lengthened rapidly, and she
finally pierced him with a glance. As his laugh rose
and fell, she dropped her jaw and her voice broke.
Alice Culver-Have you ever seen a common house-
Martha L.-No, I always thought that 110 part of a
house, except the chimney flue.
R. Medcraft-Three-sevenths of a chicken, two-thirds
of a cat, and a half of a goat. What is it?
A. Agard-Why, let me see. Now really, I don't
know. Oh, yes! Chicago.
R. Medcraft-What is the difference between here
A. Agard-Now really, I-"
R. Medcraft-The letter "T."

Dutch Cramer-Flag of truce, sir.
C. O.-Well, what do they want, Windjamlner?
Dutch-They would like to exchange a couple of
our generals for a can of condensed milk, sir.

Last term at the Cadet Camp at Manzanita. our
bovs went on guard one night. Captain "Red" Souther
was officer of the day and Lieutenant Wilson was
commander of the guard. Before going out, liieut.
Wvilson cautioned the guards about salutes and recog-
nition to be given officers. Private Lum was very
much interested, as he wanted to get a good "ree"
Along about a quarter to twelve that night Private
Lum was placed on Post No. 5, the farthest post from
the guard-house, and down in a hollow where not even
the rays of the moon came to light up any part of
the landscape, Lum didn't like it, but orders arc
orders, so he walked his post. About ten minutes
later Lum heard somebody coming. It was too late
for anybody to be out. Lum's knees began to shake.
then came dreams of a medal for bravery in line of
duty, so he held his ground. The man came nearer,
LllIllgS voice rang out:
Lum-Halt, who goes there?
Ans.-Officer of the Day.

What Will the Harvest Be?
"What you solv, that also mill you reap."
You can't sow corn and expect it to come up cabbages. You can't pIant a
pear tree and expect it to bear peaches. AND-IVIARK TI-IIS-You can't plant
extravagance and expect it to produce a crop of thrift. If you plant Dollars in
a bank account at the CITIZENS SAVINGS BANK, they WiII produce-if you
cIon't plant them, they won't.
GET THE HABIT! SAVE!
CITIZENS SAVINGS BANK
PREPAREDNESS-is the Hrst step of the journey to success. FORE-
