VVING to the fact that there was no Acorn last term,
this edition will embody some of the interesting
and pleasant incidents of last term. All of us realize
the necessity of saving money during this great war
and accordingly the Administrative Board decided to
have the Acorn but once a year and that the total outlay to
produce the book should not exceed 52600. Everyone must
bear in mind that previous Acorns have cost from S750 to
8950, and accordingly the editor and manager have found it
hard to meet difficulties, such as advances in paper and ma-
This book is not a High Senior or a Low Senior publica-
tion. It is the school's book financed by the Low and High
Senior Classes, the merchants of Alameda, and the school.
The school, however, grants the Senior Class the privilege
ot' publishing the Acorn with the understanding that it is not
the book of the Senior Class but that it belongsi to every
Class of the school. - V
This issue is a patriotic one-' and the editor and manager,
co-operating with the students, have striven on all occasions
to keep in mind the ever timely motive of economy, hence
this book represents not only that spirit, but also in part, the
patriotic fervor of the Alameda High School.

ldililor in Chief Business Manager
HIS term The Acorn has undergone many changes. The first change was
the decision by the Administrative lloard that the book had limits in price,
the second was that the hook was to have a limited number of pages, and
lastly, that the two Senior Classes should publish it. All of these changes
consumed a long period of time, and the work was delayed. This meant
hustling on the part oi' the Stail', which was done. The economy system adopted by
the manager has aided materially the quality of this publication.
In conclusion we wish to thank Miss Connelly and Mr. Coan for their help in
furthering completion oi' this book. We wish also to thank the Harrington-Mclnnis
Printing Co. and the Phoenix Photo Engraving Co. for their splendid advice and
helpg the Star and Key Society for their storiesg the typing classes for their aid:
the Administrative Board for its support, and the school in general for its interest
and good will toward The Acorn.

History of The Acorn
N 1899, WHILE laboring under great ditliculties, in printing presses and poor
engraving, The Acorn was nevertheless founded as a school annual. The editor
and manager of this publication were Gus White and Gerald Anthony respect-
ively. This edition, only twelve pages, was composed almost entirely of stories,
making the sections of athletics and other school activities very small. This
book more closely resembled "The Oak Leaf" of today for it was only twice as large
and contained news which could now be found in "The Oak Leaf."
In 1900 the idea of "The Oak Leaf" was started ,in that The Acorn was put
out two or three times a term. Up to this year the cover designs of the editions
were the same, when Florence A. Parker, as editor, abolished this custom. These
editions had good cuts, such as those of the faculty, the graduating class, and those
of our famous athletic teams.
Then, by 1904, The Acorn was more like the present publications, being larger,
and all school activities being well represented.
In June, 1911, The Acorn was made a semi-annual book edited by the Senior
Class, as before this date one issue was published by the graduating class and
devoted entirely to the graduating class. Henry Allen edited the first semi-annual,
and Frank Pollard managed it. From then on all Acorns have been edited by the
school with the privilege to the Senior Class to publish them.
The Acorn was first published without advertisements in December, 1915, and
this class is complimented for being able to publish and finance such a publication.
Last term there was no Acorn due to the war, and it is to the credit of the
December 1917 class that they were patriotic enough to sacrifice their Acorn in
order that they might give financial support to the government.

OUR SCHOOL ORGANIZATION
VERY ONE will admit that the school organization is probably stronger than
it has ever been in the past. This term great interest has been taken in
war relief work, and every student has gotten behind this type of work
and has done their bit to help, through the organic spirit prevalent. The
students have backed up the athletic teams this year, and taking the most
important form of athletics, i. e. baseball in question, one can readily review'the
games and see the splendid and large rooting sections of Alameda High. The student
meetings have been successful, the desire of the fellows to cut is practically a thing
of the psat, and student activities have been in their prime, if such a word may be
used to describe them.
The short introduction above shows what a school of but eight hundred stu-
dents can do if the proper administration is in power. As editor of a publication,
I take liberty to criticise the disorganization of Oakland Technical High School ami
compare it with our splendid organization. One could briefly describe Tech's
organization as a thing upon which no brain po-wer or real thinking has been used.
Over there the military organization and athletic organization buck against each
other and consequently litle is done. The student meetings over at Tech are poor.
The yell leader is president and secretary literally, and he conducts the meetings
from beginning to end. The president at Tech would not dare to attempt conduct-
ing a meeting, for the I. W. VV. spirit prevalent there would surely either be dis-
orderly or would take methods similar to those used by rowdies and "kick him out."
N0 disorder or rowdyism is prevalent in Alameda High and every one is rooting and
backing up the ofticers ot' the Student Body. The military companies cannot buck
against the athletic organization merely because all the big athletes in A. H. S. take
Military. We all hope the present good work of the administration will continue
in the t'uture.
"ARlEN'T HE CUTE, SALLY?"
The above editorial illustrates in brief the strong organization of the past term.
However, everyone did not back up the administration this semester. For instance,
much discussion has been caused by articles in the issue of the "Oak Leaf" dated
April 11, 1918. The editors of The Acorn feel that the policy of the "Oak Leaf,"
as apparent in the issue, is sadly at variance with the spirit prevalent in school this
term. The spirit of the school, as has been pointed out before, may be shortly em-
bodied in the word boost, and surely this is not the spirit shown by the "Oak Leaf."
In the first place, the Low Senior Class and the Student Body at large received
a decided shock in the uncalled for and inane criticism of the Senior Play. Pre-
sumably this eriticism is a feeble attempt at cleverness or wit, but the objective is
lost and only the blank, meaningless, and foolish comments remain. The writer ot'
this article even went so far as to suggest that another play would have been more
,THE ACORN Page Thirteen
suitable, dared to suggest such a thing after the play had been produced. ,' The
play was a decided success and the least that the "Oak Leaf" could have done was
to congratulate the Senior Class.
In the second place, the paper published an editorial headed "Ain't He Grand,
Mabel?" Before proceeding to attack this article, the staff of The Acorn will admit
that it is foolish for a fellow, who has not the permission of his parents or is under
18, to smoke, but in any case we feel that the "Oak Leaf" should have in it articles
which should not tend toward making it a paper representing a high school, where
there are only religious services conducted.
In this cutting satorical article the author in blazing words condemns the fools
that smoke, he denounces the game of pool as sinful, he tears down with one literary
swoop the reputation of every man who uses tobacco, he destroys with one scratch
of the pen the entire school organization by claiming that all smokers are fools,
cripples, chronics, or hopeless idiotsg he says that no officer! or school man of
prominence smokes, that those who do indulge are merely show-offs and perform
for 'Mabe1" merely to be called 'fGrand," and with more such childish prattle seeks
to reform the wayward youth, who are destroying civilization by the use of the
ln another set of editorials in the edition of May 10, the editor of the "Oak
Leaf" practically defies the school organization. He states literally that no matter
how his editorials are taken, he will nevertheless continue writing them Call prac-
tically trashj. Fellow students, we elect the editor to put out a paper which will
have in it news, that we will be interested in. Should we tolerate this any longer?
Think it over, and act.
The articles are prattle, foolish, with no objectives and merely stamplthe "Oak
Leafi' as a paper with policy which, not only slipping its bonds to moralize, is
missing the entire point of the present administration, and is wasting space in teare
ing down where boosting is needed. It is easy to tear down, but difficult to build up.
The administration under President Bishop, as has been before stated, is a solid
foundation. Lets build up "Oak Leaf" and similar organizations of your type.

The Tapestry Forest
HE LITTLE BOY was very tired. The long gloaming hour in which he had
been accustomed to slip away to his tower-room, high up with the birds,
and play softly on his violin, was a strange new time now, that slipped in
through the half-open windows, filling the corners with grey ghosts, and
sending him to croueh before the fire in the bleak library. The warm
flames, leaping gaily in their cage, made the wierd shadows draw back a little.
The shadows were only cowards, he knew, that the music of his violin sent
flying away, but now he was unprotected, for his father had taken away his fiddle
and told him to be off and study. Had he really burnt it? Or had he only threat-
ened? But the Little Boy's heart was very heavy as he thought of how carefully he
had searched without finding his violin. He had searched the whloe house, except-
He scrambled to his feet and ran down the long hall where the shadows were
so black. Who knew what the whiteness moving in the corner by the stairs might
be? It might hide the goblin man that his nurse had warned him of. With his
hands on the knob of the door he paused, casting a fearful glance back down the
shadowy passage. No, the goblin was not coming this time. He might venture in,
The little door creaked as his furtive hand pushed it open. The room was very
grey and lonely in the winter twilight. His mother's study! How very seldom had
the room been entered since the day his sweet, young mother lay white and still
on the sofa, while the flames in the fireplace flickered lower and lower, and at last
died away under the rush of the lonely shadows. The room was the same, but
strangely different, he saw, as he looked about him. The tapestry on the wall still
showed the same green forest, with the brown butterflies among the trees, the
couch with its soft cushions was still drawn up before the fireplace, but the grate
was cold and there was no nook big enough to hide his violin. He sighed and
turned to retrace the long dark passage before his father eame to catch him there.
But as he touched the door-knob, the faintest breath of rose-leaves reached him,
bringing a sudden memory. He had been a very little boy when he had come into
the study one evening just at candle lighting time, to find his mother lying on the
sofa, all alone. The faint scent of roses hung about her as she put out her hand to
him and smiled. He could feel the softness of the silk of her robe as he nestled
down beside hen. '
"Little son of mine," she had whispered, "you'll be all alone, soon. VVill you
find the tapestry forest, sweetheart, I wonder?"
And he had run away to play, and when he came back the petals of the pink
roses that had drooped over the couch lay in a fragrant shower on the floor and his
mother would not answer him.
The Vague perfume was gone again, but it left a great lump in his throat. He
went across the room and climbed upon the sofa, snuggling down among the cush-
ions. Some way it seemed to bring his mother nearer, and he missed his violin
less. The big tears slipped down his cheeks without softening they ache in his
throat. Gradually the mystery of the room wove a soft spell about him.
He had watched the trees waving in the light breeze for quite a time before
the brown butterfly came hovering past him. It sailed so slowly that he could not
resist the temptation to chase it down the long forest aisle that opened so invitingly
Page Sixteen ' THE ACORN
before him. Despite its slowness, the butterfly flew high, and finally vanished
among the tree tops. Forgetful of everything but the woods and the butterfly, the
Little Boy ran on down the soft wood path, until, all at once, he found himself in
a rose garden, pink with flowers, golden with sunshine, all a-flutter with gay butter-
flies, and best of all, a little girl with yellow hair and a dress as pink as the roses,
was filling her sunbonnet with the fallen rose petals. She looked up at him with-
out surprise and smiledr. b
"HelIo!" she said. ' '
Smitten with sudden shyness, the Little Boy could only stand and stare at her
dumbly. She returned his crutiny with grave, brown eyes, until she was recalled
to her work by a soft petal falling on her upturned face. Encouraged by her
silence, the Little Boy came forward a few steps.
"Can I do that, too?" he asked.
"If you've got something to put them in," she nodded. .
The Little Boy found his handkerchief and worked in silence for a few min-
utes. Then curiosity overcame his bashfulness. A
"What do you do with them when you have' them all picked up?"
"Take them to the Pretty Lady," replied the little girl. "She puts them into
big jars, and when she has enough, she kisses them, and they fly away."
"Out to the world, she says," answered the Little Girl, "and she told us once
that they all made some great singer's voice."
"Oh, won't she send some to me?" cried the Little Boy. "Then I won't miss
my violin so much I" '
"Put your leaves in here and we'll go and ask her," said the the Little Girl.
Eagerly the Little Boy took the pink bonnet string she held out to him, but his
toe caught in the moss, and he fell, flinging the petals in a scattered shower on the
"Wake up, do wake upl What will your father say?"
The Little Boy sat up unwillingly and looked at the housekeeper, with dazed
"I spilled all the rose leaves," he said.
But the housekeeper was half leading, half' dragging him down' the hall and
did not hear.
"You naughty boy," she scolded, "how could you go to sleep there, and scare us
all so! It's lucky for you that your father didn't catch you there. Hurry and dress
for dinner I"
But despite her warning, the next evening found the Little Boy slipping down
the long hall to the study. Scarcely had his eyes closed when he found himself
running down the wood path. The Little Girl was waiting for him there, and they
played hide and seek among the big pink roses, which were the golden notes of
great singers, and chased the .,butterflies, that were the fluttering hearts of pretty
ladies, and waded in the little brook, that was the laughter of children. Once he
had learned the way, he went often, forgetting lost violin, and angry father in the
joy of' playing there.
But always hevwoke too soon! Always came back from the tapestry forest
before he was ready. For the desire of his heart was to find the Pretty Lady and
ask her to send hin1 the rose leaves. But he never could get beyond the last bend
in the trail that led to her! He always awoke to find the dark creeping into the
study and the big machine that brought his father purring under the window.
And then, one day, his father sent fo1' him to come to the great library during
'PHE ACORN Page swenteen
lesson time. It was an unheard of event and the Little Boy went fearfully, won-
dering what he had done. There was another man with his father in the great
room, a man with cold eyes that frightened the Little Boy. The man, it seemed,
was the head of a school, a thing to be feared, as his nurse had told him, and he had
come to see if the Little Boy could go to his school. So much his father told him,
then the Little Boy gathered courage enough to speak out.
"Would I never come home?" he asked.
"Certainly," replied his father, "you will come home during the two weeks at
Christmas time. In the summer you will go to a camp in the mountains run by
the school, where I hope you will learn to be a man and stop this violin foolishness."
The Little Boy did not answer. If he only came home at Christmas time he
might forget the way to the tapestry forest. And how could be ever live for a
whole year without going to the rose garden? With a little frightened cry he
turned to his father again. Q
"Oh, no," he begged, "don't send me away, please! I'll be as good as gold.
Truly I will, only don't send me away !"
"Nonsense," said his father, "it is an excellent school. You'll learn some com-
mon sense there. Go back to the nursery and tell your nurse to come here."
The Little Boy found his nurse just outside the door and told her to go in.
Then, he turned and fled down the hall until he reached the closed study, and flung
himself, sobbing, on the couch.
"Oh, mother," he wept, "don't let them take me away!"
The roses had never shone so pink before, he thought, the Little Girl never half
so nice. She had even come part way down the path to look for him. All at once,
as they wandered along, the Little Boy thought of something.
"Oh, tell me," he cried, "how did you come to live here?"
She looked at him with puzzled eyes.
"Why," she said, "I fell asleep one night, and I think I forgot to wake up.
That was, oh, a long time ago!
"Do you think you could show me how?" he begged. "I want to come and live
here, too. I'm so lonely and now they're going to send me away and I can't ever
come any more!
All at once he heard a voice singing, singing, about a boat on the sea of dreams,
and he knew that it must be the Pretty Lady.
"Hurry,' cried the Little Girl, "ask the Pretty Ladyli'
He ran desperately, his breath coming in gasps. The path to the turn had never
seemed so long before, but at last he reached it.
A swarm of blue butterflies hovered over a garden, tall hollyhocks nodded over
the paths, verbena sprawled over the borders. The Pretty Lady turned and smiled
"Little son," she said and held out her arms to him.
Then he knew she was his mother, and all his lonely heart throbbed with joy.
"Oh, motherf' he cried, "how beautiful you are i"
And he ran into the safety of her arms.

The long, grey hall echoed the angry tread of his father, driving the goblin
shadows back to the farthest corners. All the mystery of the room shrank back
before the quick opening of the door, but the Little Boy lay fast asleep-too soundly
asleep to waken as the grey goblins came creeping in through the open door to
mock the man who knelt beside the couch and sobbed.

UNE '18 arrived in the Alameda High School about the time the Great War
arrived in Europe. While the war made its appearance with a rush and a
roar, June '18 came in as unobtrusive as the proverbial lamb. Yea, came in as
the lowly despised scrub of the olden days. Now, as worldly wise Seniors
they are about to leave their home of four years' standing.
In the Low Freshman year the following officers were elected: President,
Foster Adamsg Vice-President, Dorothy Deardorfg Secretary, Mark Mcliimmonsg
Editor, Edna Littlejohng Representatives, Louise B. VValden and Douglas Osborn.
Officers for the High Freshman were: President, Elizabeth Myallg Secretary,
Thomas Bacon, Editor, Marion Hubbell, Representatives, Louise B. VValden and
When June '18 arrived at the Low Junior milestonei their pep came to the
surface with a bang. During this year they selected the most original design for
their class pin, a small Oak Leaf of green-gold with numerals raised in the center
of the leaf. The boys were the first to get the class caps. On November 10th the
class gave their "Low Junior Prom," and the proceeds were given to the Motion
Picture Fund. The ofiicers elected in this term were: President, Robert Lamborng
Vice-President, Dorothy Deardorfg Secretary, Rodney Reynolds, Editor, Ruth Jack-
song Representatives, Louise B. VValden and Willis Garrettson.
Under the administration of the following oflicers in the High Junior Term:
President, Frank Reeve, Vice-President, Ruth Jacksong Secretary, Henry Shirekg
Treasurer, Bernice Arnerichg Editor, Florence Sheldon, Representatives, Louise B.
Walden and Willis Garrettson, the class showed unusual activity. One of their
main activities was a lunch auction. This was a big success, and the proceeds were
given to The Acorn.
At last we became Low Seniors. Of course, the big thing of the term was the
Low Senior Play. On October 8, 1917, "The Hallowell Haunt," by Janet Brown, a
member of the class, was presented. The financial returns were most satisfactory
and have assisted in making this Acorn a success. At the beginning of the term the
Low Senior girls entertained the Freshmen girls in the form of an entertainment at
the Freshman Reception. Before the close of the term the class invited the High
Seniors on a picnic. Both classes had a most delightful time. The officers for this
term were: President, Bertram Castrog Vice-President, Louise B. Waldeng Secre-
tary, Willard Fleming, Editor, Janet Browng Repesentatives, Ruth Jackston and
Now, the te1'm of terms, High Seniors, Of course the most important activity
of the term is the issuing of The Acorn, the success of which we leave to your
judgment. On April 12, 1918, the class presented the most successful vaudeville
ever given by the Alameda High School. The proceeds were given to the War
Relief. The administration for the last term was under: President, Willard Flem-
ing, Vice-President, Louise B. Walden, Secretary, Robert Lamborng Editor, Annie
Ward, Representatives, Ruth Jackson and Leslie Mclver.
The class of June '18 is about to leave the A. H. S. forever. Though many will
undoubtedly come back to visit, the class as a whole will soon be a memory. It
is with sincere regret that they will leave that building which has been a friend,
a home and a help to them for these last four years.

OVV THAT the class of December '18 has climbed, perhaps with some diffi-
culty, almost to the top, it does not intend to go down again on the other
side of the hill. This class can look back with pride on the work it has
accomplished for the benefit of the whole school.
As Freshmen our class was unrivalled.
The follownig officers were elected for our first tern1:
Jack Birbeck .....,............,.............,..,.................,,............. President
Felice Elliot ....,. .,..... V ice-President
George Kellner .... ...,.. ...........,. S e cretary
Audrey Durst ......,.. .,..,.....,...,..................... E ditor
Erla Cooley ....................,,., .......... ....... A Q lministrative Board
Reginald Vaughan ........,...........,............. Administrative Board
The Seniors entertained the girls at the customary Freshman Reception with
a very enjoyable program on January 28. They were welcomed to the school by
Dr. Thompson, and Gladys Cole and Felice Elliott responded on behalf of the
Later on a clever playlet entitled, "The Kleptomaniacf' was successfully given
with a cast consisting entirely of girls. The class spirit was so high and directed
toward such good purposes that even the Seniors took notice and gave space in
their Acorn to remark upon it.
The Sophomore and Junior years were passed successfully in every way, but,
as is usual, quietly.
When at last the Senior year was reached the following officers were elected
to guide the class:
Arthur Hieronymus ,..... ..,.............. P resident
Eileen Nelson .........,.. .,,.,......... V ice-President
lrma Gutsch ..... ...... ...,,...........,...,..........,. E d itor
Isabel Saydcr .....,..i.....,,......,........,..,......... Administrative Board
Leslie Smith ....,...,.......,,.,.......,.,,.,......,...... Administrative Board
Great plans were started and wonderful things anticipated. The Girls' Fresh-
man Reception was given in February, and at the Porter School for the first time.
Everyone who was there can testify to it ssuccess.
Almost immediately following the Freshman Reception the Senior Play, "The
Late Mr. Costello," was chosen. Tryouts were held and suitable characters for
every role were chosen by Director VVilliam Varcoe and our advisor, Mr. Coan. After
many tedious rehearsals, the play was presented March 16th, and added still more
laurels to our wreath.
This undertaking is especially worthy of praise on account of the difficulties
which had to be surmounted. The first one was encountered because of the excep-
tional smallness of the class. A play with very few characters had to be chosen.
This was a very hard task as plays of this sort are scarce, the roles usually very
difficult and long. The second problem was the financial question, as only a small
class was supporting the cast. With all these drawbacks the play came out well
and can be counted as another success of the class of December '18.
We take this opportunity to thank the teachers for their untiring interest and
assure them that the care with which they have so thoughtfully guided us has not
been in vain.

HIS SEMESTER, through the unc-easing efforts of the administration the
Student Body was revived, the organization was as strong and probably
stronger than others have been in the past. In the beginning of the term,
President Bishop obtained permission from Dr. Thompson to have every
other Thursday, student meeting period. By so doing all the students were
forced to attend the meetings and the student hall has not been filled by the usual
empty seat system. The fellows realized the seriousness of rooting and supported
the yell leaders. Good order in meetings was obtained by the stationing of members
ot' the Senior Judiciary Board around the study hall.
Last term the compulsory student dues system was tried by the Board of Edu-
cation in the High School. Being a great success the Board adopted this system
to be permanent in the High School. Through this system, Mr. Evans and Secretary
Garrettson have been paying off bills promptly, thus making good the standing of
the school. During this semester the thrift stamp campaign was started by the
government, and Mr. Evans' Advisory appropriated a 9550 Liberty Bond to the
school, from which 33.75 was to he taken each week, and awarded as a prize to
the student holding the lucky two-bit thrift stamp. So much interest was shown
in the drawing that Dr. Thompson dismissed school at 2:50 each Friday in order
that the students might be present at the drawing.
The Student Body meetings have been good. Entertainment has been rendered
by the June '18 Quartet, Misses Georgette Szoke, Hutt, and Hunt, and C. Tarleton.
Good speakers were procured on occasions, who were greatly appreciated by the
The Student Body was organized in 1899. The body was strong, but owing to
the small enrollment of the school the body was not large enough to be great.
The difficulty in the first few' years of the organization was the matter of
finances. This was soon settled by giving shows and such famed productions as,
"Ship Ahoy," "Chimes of Normandy," and the various vaudevilles are an out-
growth of the financial system of those days.
The Acorn was founded by VVhite in 1899. In 1914 the "Oak Leaf" was
Page Forty THE Acokx
founded by B. K. Vaughan. Since 1914 the "Oak Leaf" has grown rapidly due to
the undying interest shown by Mr. Agard and the Journalism Classes. In 1914 the
bank was organized by Mr. Evans, and since that time it has grown radiply. It is
a branch of the Citizens and Alameda National Banks. It is the head bank over
all the Grammar School Banks. This semester the matter of War Savings and
Thrift Stamps has been ably taken care of by this organization.
A few years ago Mr. Jesse Robinson, an old alumnus, offered two debating
medals to the school in order to revive debating and public speaking in the schools.
The school accepted his generosity and the debating society has since become a
most important organization. This year we were represented in the State League
of High School Debaters.
The motion picture machine, which was purchased by the school a few years
ago, has been giving many shows this last year, the revenue from which has gone
to the Red Cross. Much is due to the efforts of Miss Haworth, who heads the

S THE ACORN presents a review of the school life of the term, so the
Oak Leaf evidences school life as it manifests itself during the term. The
policy of the Oak Leaf has always been to deal with the plans a11d prob-
lems of the present and future rather than to review what has passed by.
The Oak Leaf has taken the little interesting bits of school happen-
ings and has published them for all to read. It has acted as a means of advertising
deserving organizations, and has written up the school athletes, the officers, plays
and benefits. In the Safety Valve columns the students' criticisms and suggestions
have been published, and the problems of every day affairs have been considered
in its editorial section.
The financial side of the Oak Leaf is the real problem for the school. The paper
receives a small amount of money from the school for its publication, but the main
support must come from advertising. The soliciting of ads for a high school paper
is a difficult and thankless work known only to the few who do it. The Oak Leaf
is given free of charge to each member of the Student Body.
The Oak Leaf though slightly larger than last term should be still more preten-
tious and should have a greater number of issues. A school of the size of Alameda
High School should be able to produce a larger paper, and it is to be hoped that
the size and number of future editions will increase.
The Editor and Manager, according to present arrangements, are elected by the
Administrative Board. The staff is selected by the Editor from the Journalism Class
and the school at large. The following were responsible for the publication of the
Oak Leaf from January to June, 1918:

HE SCHOOL YEAR 1017-1918 marked Alameda's active entry into inter-
scholastic debating circles. With the exception of an occasional debate
with another school, debating was confined entirely to competition within
the school. While this was better than allowing the famous indoor sport
to perish entirely, it was not conducive to any great development of interest
except on the part of a few students. Meeting other schools, coming into conflict
with outside opposition, is the very heart of all competition. All athletic and debat-
ing coaches know this. Debating, confined within the school, is a good deal like a
game of solitaire, and no one has ever been known to go wild with excitement about
Last term Alameda decided to join the Interscholastic Public Speaking League,
and we were matched for six debates, two with San Rafael, two with Napa and two
with Berkeley. There was an abundance of good raw material, in such men as
Jack Moran, Marshall Lovey, Paul St. Sure, Chesley Anderson, Jesse Levy, and others.
All these men gave a good account of themselves in active competition, and bronze
debating A's were awarded to Moran, Levy, St. Sure, Anderson and Melvin Mc-
In November, Alameda defeated San Rafael for the first time, and lost to Berke-
ley in a close debate. In January, one Alameda team went to Napa, and the other
remained in Alameda to meet the visiting Napa team. Alameda won the debate
here against Napa, but the team which went to Napa lost by the score of 2-1'.
Our last debate was held in March, when we overwhelmed San Rafael for the
second time, but lost again to Berkeley. Out of a total of 18 decisions tthree deci-
sions to a debatel Alameda received 10, thus giving us a percentage of better than
.500 in the debating league.
Considering this 'excellent showing for our first year of active competition,
general school interest in the debates was surprisingly small. Another year, how-
ever, when Alameda sweeps its district championship, there will be a different
story to tell.
There remain two debates this term. A prize debate on the question of the
lnunicipal ownership of the city water supply, and the Jesse Robinson medal debate.
What is the future of debating in Alameda High School? If we may judge by
our success this year, with untried men, it should be a bright future that awaits usg
yet when we stop to think about the lack of interest in debating, we are tempted to
feel that unless a real awakening hits the school and revives its ancient spirit, we
shall be left without representatives when the present teams are gone. It' younger
members of the school come forward, to take these places, to work as faithfully as
the loyal boys worked who make up the teams this year, Alameda will be the capital
city on the debating map for years to comeg if not, we shall fall to that dull level
of mediocrity, where the has-been and the failure lie sleeping side by side.

HE A. H. S. 0l'lCHliS'l'HA is making great strides. Perhaps the new Porter
Auditorium with its fine stage and grand piano has been an incentive to
the very early morning practice. The orchestra has reached a fine degree
of ensemble playing. Practically all of the first violinists are good solo
players and have shown their individual ability in assemblies, movies, con-
cert wo1'k and church. The second violins, eight in all now, have improved greatly,
too. With a much keener idea of intonation and rhythm they have made their
-often very diflicult-parts beautiful and melodious. The clarinet and flute players
are doing such enviable work that they are frequently sought by outside orchestras
and schools, Now with the cornet doing splendidly and someone practicing hard
on the trombone, another on bells, the happy find of the xylophone player, two
excellent pianists, and a good drummer, our future is bright.
The results this semester have been excellent, but there is a great need for the
High School student to take up the more unusual instruments. This year the orches-
tra has been playing compositions of Beethoven, Schubert, Hayden, in this way
learning to appreciate the Symphonies and big overtures when they are heard.
The department is gradually getting a fine library of interesting pieces and enough
popular music now and then to make the Senior vaudeville stunts and the morning
practice truly thrilling.
In all its success, however, there is just that one degree of dissatisfaction, and
it is this: In a high school with so large a registration there should be fifty members
studying some instrument-cello, double bass, clarinet, flute, trombone, cornet.
COIHG show your spirit, whether you think you are nmsical or not.

U TO FEBRUARY 18, 1918, the Alameda High School Bank progressed rap-
idly. The amount deposited was fifteen thousand dollars, there being
over twenty-five hundred accounts averaging from two cents'up to over
a hundred dollars. Then, on February 18, 1918, the Alameda City Schools
Savings System placed its entire organization behind the Thrift Stamp
and War Savings Certificate Campaign, the first duty of every loyal American being
to raise money for the use of the United States in its fight for democracy. Mr.
Du Four, Superintendent of Schools, said: "I feel that all further savings of the
school children should be directed solely to the buying of Thrift Stamps
Therefore, no further deposits were taken by the bank, and if it was desired to
make deposits on open accounts, instead of purchasing Thrift Stamps and War
Savings Certificates, it was necessary to make the deposits either at the Citizen's
Bank or the Savings Bank of Alameda. Such deposits could not be less than 81.00.
To encourage the buying of Thrift Stamps and War Savings Certificates a draw-
ing takes placelin the Study Hall every Friday afternoon, at which a War Savings
Certificate is given away.
The Alameda City Schools Savings System will be resumed upon the completion
of the Thrift Stamp and War Savings Certificate Campaign of 1918. Therefore,
the students of the High School have been urged to buy Thrift Stamps and they
have responded nobly, showing they are ready to do their hit for democracy.

The fellows haveheard talks and talksg model speeches, educational lectures
and monologues and jokes, and they still come back for more. That in itself is proof
enough that the system is a success, but the success does not stop there. The fellows
try to make their advisory the first in everything and they try to put their room first
by offering an interesting progam. n
And it can be seenthat this is but the beginning. There are great possibilities
in our plan which brings together all the fellows in the school and the idea of
listening to speakers offered by advisories is merely the cornerstone for a great
sctructure, which if properly built, must be permanent and pleasant.

OR HARMONY, jazz, and nerve there is one organization in the A. H. S. thait
deserves credit. This is the June '18 Quartette. Four boys ot' the Class ol'
.lune '18 decided that the school needed something to put a little "pep" into
the meetings and other affairs of the school. This something they thought ot'
was a quartette. Most of the high schools have themg why shouldn't Alameda
have one also. With the very valuable assistance ot' Miss Mcliermott the .lune
'18 Quartette was started. The following officials were appointed: V N. Hart, bari-
tone, B. Castro, tenorg R. Vaughan, first bass, and P. St. Sure, second bass.
After a few attempts the boys were able to strike a harmonious note now and
then, but Miss McDermott was able to stand it, so they practiced with the idea that
"practice makes perfect." While they didn't entirely reach the latter stage, they
became proficient enough to sing at a student body meeting, where they were a
"howling" success. -
With such encouragement they proceeded to improve and sang at various meet-
ings and entertainments. Their crowning glory, however, was "At Harmony June-
tion," a sketch which they produced for the High Seniorpheum. This was really a
hit, and the boys worked hard enough to make it so.
As all the boys in the quartette graduate this term, the school will be minus a
necessary part next term unless the Seniors have started the ball rolling and the
other classes intend to keep it up.
Conservation Cook Book
HEN our High School sets out to do a thing, the result is sure to be good.
This term our School has issued a Conservation Cook Book which groups
the efforts of many departments. The greater part of the recipes were
gathered by the classes in Cooking and Dietetics, under Mrs. Wardg the pub-
lication was supervised by the Class in Journalism, under Mr. Agardg the cover de-
sign was made by the Art Department, under Miss Abernethyg the typing done by
the Class in Typing, under Miss Chaceg and the publication was financed by the
Associated Students. The books are being sold by the Class in Salesmanship, un-
der Mr. Evans, for the benefit of our Alameda High School Junior Red Cross. Here
is something larger than a school interest, it reaches out to the needs of our com-
munity and our nation.
All the organizations in school should get behind this movement and push it
through. lf this is done the results will be a good advertisement to the school ac-

Under the careful guidance of our president, Gladys Nobmann, plans have
been made and carried out arousing new interest and enthusiasm. At the
beginning of this term, tactful and hard-working girls were chosen, form-

duty it is to advise and direct new Freshman girls and welcome them to Alameda

Other speakers are to be asked, and interesting talks are being looked forward to.
The girls have planned a big day to be held near the end of the term. It is to
be a beach party. A big bonfire is to be built and wienies and potatoes are to be

A Girls' Judiciary Board, composed of nine Seniors and two Juniors, has made
its appearance this semester along with the Boys' Judiciary Board. Originally such
a Board of control, called the Senior Advisory Committee, was composed of seven
Senior girls who met with Doctor Thompson and Miss Haworth. Gradually as
matters arose which concerned only the boys this board became exclusively con-
trolled by the boys. Lately the girls have felt the need of such a committee, but it
is only this term that definite action has been taken toward its formation.
The purpose ot' this committee is to revise and control matters concerning the
girls, and to act in co-operation with the lloys' Board in the management ot' school

During the Fall term the class had several meetings but were not organized
thoroughly so did not do much.
During the Spring term of 1918, the class has shown a lot of school and class
spirit. They gave an entertainment and dance at Dorothy Tabor's house on
the 22nd of February, and on that occasion they surely showed their class spirit.
The affair was carefully planned to insure its success. Melita Hutt was made chair-
man of a committee to arrange the program for the party, and she appointed the
following to assist her: Carolyn Brady, Clark Spence, Kruger Dunbar, Christian

LAMEDA HIGH has something to be proud of. It is her gallant battalion
of soldiers. This term military was started off in great form and has con-
tinued in such a manner. Otto Rittler was made commandant of cadets
by Dr. Thompson and through his efforts much has been done. One of
the first things Commandant Bittler did was the selection of a new major,
and Ed. Marriott fell into this position. Ed has had a great deal of good and prac-
tical military training, having attended a military school and he also was a regulal'
in the L'. S. Army until he obtained a furlough in order that he might finish high
This semester there are three companies. They are the Senior company, headed
by Captain McKimmins, the Junior company headed by Captain Bishop, and the
Freshman company headed by Captain Loring. Probably through patriotism the
cadets have realized the seriousness of drilling and have learned a great deal.
In the spring vacation the State gave an encampment at Mt. Diablo and invited
the Alameda High Cadets. Many responded and had a good time besides having
experienced some real military training.
The A. H. S. Cadets were organized in 1914 by Leland Sweeney. There was no
period in school in which the cadets could drill and as a result drilling after school
was the consequence. A few loyals were out but little could be done owing to the
fact that there was no military equipment in the school.
ln 1915 Harold Kahn was made major until a selection could be made. Captain
C. P. Magagnos, N. G. C. Cdeceasedi, was called on and he selected Foster Miles.
Miles was the man of the hour in this instance and a rapid stride was taken. The
cadets succeeded so well that the State sent some manuals, sabers, chevrons, guns, etc.
The next year the State sent to us Lieutenant Lamb fnow in Francel, who
started the youthful soldiers on advance work. Such ceremonies as flag raising
and lowering were performed, and the A. H. S. just missed being a military insti-
tution. Our good fortune in having Lieut. Lamb was not for long, as in January,
1917, he was called on active duty.
In the fall of 1917 the cadets, headed by Pettes St. Sure, went out to the State
rifle range at Leona Heights and did some real shooting.
ln conclusion, the fact that the cadets are members of the Junior Reserve
Ofiicers' Training Camp should not be omitted. Should the Government call on
those eligible, every one knows they are ready.

ODAY all our high schools are bigger and broader than before the war.
In the Alameda High School, books and papers, classrooms and
tories maintain their places as before, but in addition there is now a prac-
tical and sincere effort to help in the war-knitting for the soldiers and'
. sailors, collecting clothes for the Belgians, buying Liberty Bonds and
Thrift Stamps, saving tinfoil, preserving fruit in the summer, planting gardens in
the spring, boosting for the Y.. M. C. A. in the fall, making surgical dressings and
scrapbooks for the hospitals, with refugee and baby clothes galore, to say nothing
of theatrical benefits and movie performances. For the good cause we have
enjoyed plays and vaudevilles and the latest movie stars, Mary Pickford, Marguerite
Clark, Douglas Fairbanks, William S. Hart, Charles Ray, Sessue Hayakawa, together
with numerous patriotic films. Energy and work are needed for these activities
which are not listed in the schedule nor counted for graduation. But who can deny
that the aim of education is to develop responsibility with that capacity for hard
work and efficient management that plans ahead and accomplishes results
The service flag with its 220 stars that hangs in our entrance hall emphasizes
the fact that service is the keynote of the student body and the faculty. To begin
with, every student is a member of the Junior Red Cross. Headquarters for the
local chapter have been at the High School since August to save extra clerical
expense. There are now extension classes in food conservation, dietetics, first aid,
hygiene, and surgical dressings.
Since August we have raised over 535000 for war work. We have bought twelve
Liberty Bonds and S3000 Thrift Stamps, given S5500 to Y. M. C. Ai., knitted S9400 worth
of wool, sent S5100 for Belgian relief and S100 for French relief, with a drayload of
warm clothes, socks, shoes, handkerchiefs, baby clothes and quilts, together with
670 letters to Belgian children. We have made comfort bags for the soldiers and
170 interesting and quite artistic scrap books containing pictures, stories and jokes
to relieve the monotony of wounded soldiers in the hospitals. Just now we are
busy on refugee garments for abroad and knitted sweaters for the Alameda com-
pany to be in the field soon.
No task is small or inconspicuous if it can be of service, and we try to
1'equests from gun wipes to four-minute speeches. The salesmanship class
advertised and managed a newspaper drive. The High School Bank has
313,288.19 CApril 181 for War Savings Stamps. Spring plans indicate war
will yield a valuable summer crop. We not only make money but we save it, and
the thrifty Seniors have devised all sorts of means for curtailing expenses and
simplifying class activities. We have a saying, "lf you want anything, ask for it,"
and we find that the students respond and "Go over the ton."

The Hallowell Haunt
HE CLASS OF JUNE '18 presented "The Hallowell Haunt" as its Low Senior
Play on Friday evening, October 5, 1917, at the Adelphian Hall. This play,
which was written by Janet Brown, a member of the class of June 18,
surpassed all previous productions, because it afforded unusual opportuni-
ties for fine characterizations, and was also a success from an artistic as
well as from a dramatic viewpoint.
The play "got over the footlights' from thc very start, and certainly this honor
belongs to the author, Janet Brown, who certainly saw to it that there was lots of
pep and jazz in the plot.
The class may well be proud of this production, for its pretty scenery, stage
settings, costumes, together with plenty of action, made the play, which was quite
within the possibilities of amateur actors, who were exceedingly natural in their
action, a success. These things showed careful coaching, for there were no breaks
or awkward places in the whole performance.
In the beginning of' the play we find Geoffrey Adams, during the progress of his
house party, quarreling with Veronica Anne Hallowell, over her supposed flirtation
with Bruce Mainwaring. During the evening they converse on the love story of
Captain Geoffrey Adams and the Hallowell Haunt of Revolutionary times. Veronica
Anne, it is said, walks once a year to fill her rose jar with petals. Falling asleep
on the sofa, Geoffrey sees the Haunt and follows her back into the Revolutionary
days when she, Veronica Anne, was a Toryg and he was Captain Geoffrey Adams
of the Continental Army, and a spy in the British lines. Because he is being hunted
by the British, in his dream he comes to Veronica and she hides him until the
Page Sixty-six THE AcoRN
British officers shall have left the house. lnto their plotting comes Peter and Betty,
the gardener and the maid, who contrive to turn up at odd moments. 'When the
British officers finally go, Major Bruce Mainwaring is left behind to await dis-
patches, and to his surprise he finds Veronica and Geoffrey plotting their troth
and saying good-bye over the rose jar. In the fight that follows Veronica drops thc
jar, which breaks as Geoffrey kills Major Mainwaring.
In the final scene Peter, the old butler, coming in to build the fire, wakes Geof-
frey up. With the aid of his dreams of the Revolutionary Veronica Anne and
Captain Geoffrey Adams, he mends his engagement with Veronica. As he begins
to tell her of his wonderful dream, Veronica picks up the jar and finds that it has
once been broken.

The Late Mr. Castello
HIC SENIOR PLAY, "The Late Mr. Castello," a farce in three acts, was
presented by the class ot' December '18, on Saturday evening, March Ili.
This play, the first to be held in the new Porter School, was a decided
success from a dramatic standpoint, due to the excellent east, and through
the unceasing efforts of' the manager, Paul Lum, a financial success. The
selection of' this play, by Sydney Grundy, demonstrates the fact that the High School
can produce the better class ot' plays and still have an appreciative and entertained
audience. Great credit is due to Mr. William Varcoe as director.
The plot deals with the love atlairs of' the charming and coquettish widow.
Sadie Castello, and her numerous flirtationsg her sister, Avice l1ickerdyke's vain
attempts to get a husbandg and lastly, Mrs. liickerdyke, who yearns for Sil' Pinto.
The scene ot' this English comedy is laid throughout in the drawing-room ol'
Mrs. l5ickerdyke's residence, near London. The time is mid-summer.
Mrs. Bickerdyke, who buys stock with what little money she has, has not
enough to keep both daughters and herself, so she decides Sadie must marry one ol'
her ardent suitors. Although she desires Sir Pinto, Mrs. Bickerdyke is willing to
sacrifice him to get Sadie out of' the way, and give the over-anxious Aviee a chance
In the first act the scene is laid in the morning.
The play opens with Mrs. Bickerdyke figuring her profit from stocks. Avice
enters and argues with her mother upon her selection ot' stocks. ,Xvice has even
1"11gi'Sixfy-vigil! ,FHE ACORN
been studying finances in order to interest Jack Uniacke, but despairs of any suc-
cess with Sadie in the house. Her mother says she can do nothing with Sadie,
because of her constancy to the late Mr. Castello. She met him on the way to South
America and married him, but was most unhappy. Sadie returned to England in
broken health and Alvarez went to the interior to shoot big. game and was never
heard of again. '
Mr. Uniacke is the first one to be definitely refused. Soon after Sir Pinto pl'O-
poses in a note, accompanying Sadie's birthday present.
Captain Trefusis, who has been jilted by an unknown Beryl, calls and decides
Sadie is going to marry him. He appears most successful, as before he leaves she
already calls him by his first name, Douglas, and he has kissed her and been
detected. Mrs. Bickerdyke says she is an expense and obstacle, so Sadie angrily
accepts Sir Pinto. Mrs. Bickerdyke is overcome, for she receives a telegram saying
she has made 50,000 pounds and now she has unnecessarily lost Sir Pinto.
Act II is the same scene in the afternoon. '
Avice has some success with Jack. Sadie informs her mother she has no inten-
tions of marrying Sir Pinto.
The Captain succeeds in making Sadie admit that she cared nothing for Alvarez,
and she makes him admit that he is free to marry her regardless of Beryl, and then
tells him.she is engaged to Sir Pinto.
The undaunted Captain plans to become the long-lost Alvarez and frighten Sir
Pinto into marrying Mrs. Bickerdyke. The plan is most successful, for Sir Pinto,
fearing the wrath of Sadie's supposed husband, admits the proposal was for Mrs.
Bickerdyke. Sadie is pleased, but does not comprehend the situation.
Act III is the same scene, after dinner. E
Sir Pinto confesses to Mrs. Bickerdyke that his age is sixty-three instead ot'
fifty-nine, and she tells him she has lost all her money and also admits that Alvarez
is only the Captainf. Sir Pinto says he will propose to Sadie again, but the Captain
says he is a witness that he proposed to Mrs. Bickerdyke.
Sadie makes the Captain admit there is no Beryl and then refuses him again.
Avice, who has taken the Captain's advice and dangled, informs her sister that she
is engaged to Jack.
The Captain now produces Alvarez, and Sadie becomes very excited and says
she will kill herself before she will live with him. Sadie then tells the Captain
that she really loves him and he promises to wait for her. Soon Sadie hears
Alvarez arguing in Portuguese outside and as Alvarez is announced, the Captain
walks in and she falls in his arms. When she regains consciousness she learns that
the Captain is the supposed Alvarez, and says, "Thank Heaven!"

HE Hl SENIOHPHEUM, presented by the class ol' June '18 on April 12 at
Porter School, was a success, a big success. The production was said by
many to be the best ever put on by the Alameda High School. The net
proceeds ot' over a hundred and sixty dollars speak worlds for the linancial
success of the entertainment. The entire proceeds were given by the class
to purchase knitting wool. This wool is to be used by the girls of the High
School to knit sweaters l'or the company ol' Alameda "Sammies" which will leave
in the next draft. The program consisted ot' ten numbers. The entire length ol' the
performance was three hours.
The entertainment started with a good old-fashioned minuet, presented by
eight girls ol' the June '18 class. The accompanying recitation by Carlotta Heid
was well received by thc audience. The settings and quaint costumes made the
scene a most charming one. Those who took part were C. Heid, M. Hubbell, B. Jack-
son, H. Goldthwaite, M. Hodges, M. liollmyer, J. Brown, li. NVilliams, D. Gardner.
Harmony Junction, a quartet sketch, proved a riot ol' laughter. Bertram
Castro's characterization of a rube stationmaster brought forth roars of amuse-
ment. Newel Hart, as a dandilied actor, caused quite a flutter in the audience.
"Reg" Vaughan, "da blackest coon portaw what ebcr libbed," and Paul St. Sure,
the "raggediest" tramp, provided enough amusement for several shows.
The American lieauty Chorus, led by Georgette Szoke, captured everyone by
their charm and grace. Indeed, this number was one of the big attractions on the
program. Their "Powder Putt" song made a big hit. The chorus was presented
by C. Szoke, M. Cattermole, l. VVallace, D. Gardner, E. NVilliams, S. Chucovich,
M. liollmyer, K. Lorentzen, H. Sanford, M. Hodges, O. Scheurman.
The Jazz Band, as presented by .l. Jacobs, I.. Mclver, I.. Berlin and C. Tarleton,
Page Smwnfy 'PHE ACORN
made one t'eel just like getting up and dancing. Indeed, behind the scenes those
waiting their turn were dancing. The band played a great many of the popular
songs, which are always well received.
A comic dialogue, "Wise and Otherwise," was given by Georgette Szoke and
Paul St. Sure. They exchanged quite a bit of lively chatter and rendered two or
three songs. PaulfSt. Sure's recitation about an onion produced a good deal of
Following two selections given by the A,. H. S. Orchestra, Robert Lamborn
gave a spirited four-minute talk. His subject was the old slogan, "Buy a Bond."
The last number on the program was a two-act skit. The title was "Let's All
Get Married." Married life may be exciting, but not half as exciting as trying to
get married to the girl one loves and also to annex two hundred thousand dollars
by that marriage. Especially when there is a bogus burglar, a bogus minister and
a bogus husband all working themselves into the general mixup. One can imagine
the situations that would arise from such a plot. The skit p1'oved to be a real head-

Fighting Americans Now
fBy Strickland W.,Gillilan.J
Yes, Fritz, you are fighting Americans now,
'And the 'outcome is easy to guess.
.A lively new foe has a hand in the row-
Your chances for winning are less.
For Sammie- has made his belligerent bow-
He'll show you you're fighting Americans now!
You're fighting a nation that's never been licked
By foeman abroad or at home.
By lie-propaganda she cannot be tricked-
Her fighters are crossing the foam,
Or fighting on farms with the harrow and plow-
Yes, Fritz, you are fighting Americans now!
You're fighting a nation that's waking at last
To all the word "Prussianize" meansg
As hero our part in the play has been cast
In all the Great Dramatist's scenes.
In all of your plans you will have to allow
For the fact that you're fighting Americans now!
You're fighting a nation that never has fought
For aims that were selfish or baseg
A nation that cannot be frightened or bought
Or crushed by your brutalized race.
The laurels must stay upon Liberty's brow-
And will! You are fighting Americans now!
You've striven with hordes of invincible France.
You've striven with Tommies-you KNOW!
- Italians have led you a dangerous dance,
There's trouble wherever you go.
Poor Fritzie-you'd better go home to your frau!
Ach, himmel! You're fighting Americans now!

"There's a reason." '1'here's a reason why the Student Bodyshould be proud
of the Senior Committee, there's a reason why it should be proud of the classes of
'21 and '22, and that reason is in the form of the Freshman Sophomore day. This
day of organized roughhouse, as some of the faculty termed it, proved that if such
days of organized roughhouse were to be held by the school, the Senior Committee
were the fellows to organize it. '
The scores of the various events of the day were:
Baseball-Frosh 4, Sophs 2.
Tug-of-war won by '21.
Tie-up won by '21.
Jousting contest won by 21.
Mrs. Hallett and class of '19, accept the congratulations of The Acorn for your
splendid Junior Prom. The prom has been a school custom for many terms, and
the present Junior Class has done a great deal to keep that custom alive, by offering
for the approval of the school a dance that will necessitate hard work to equal. The
decorations in class colors, the good music, the crowd, and the peppy spirit of the
class are surely all the necessary ingredients for a good dance, and the class of '19
had all of them.
Miss Dyer Leaves
Miss Dyer has told us that if we sing together we shall work together, and we
believe her. VVe shall not omit, however, in the program of our singing the praises
of one of our faculty who has answered not only the call of our government and of
France, but the call of humanity in distress. To the great work which you, Miss
Dyer, and the myriads of other self-sacrificing men and women had given every-
thing that they possess, even the dearest of possessions, life, we pledge our efforts
in the future, and we will pledge ourselves not only to sing but to work together.
We can only echo the words of Doctor Thompson in wishing you God speed on
your task for the benefit of mankind.
Mr. Robert Robertson Speaks
"I think I can-I think l can-I think I can." Fellows, will you ever forget
things which will hold for all time. Mr. Robertson's policy is smile, and then let
the crack break open. Just open your faces, and have a good hearty laugh, and you'll
feel younger, peppier and freshier. But, don't save all the fun for yourself. Help
other people to laugh and at the same time enjoy yourself. That is Mr. Robert Rob-
ertson's plan, and he is putting his theory to practice. We'll leave to the fellows
as to how well it worked. Mr. Robertson, your time was not wasted, nor your
efforts, and the fellows, to a man, enjoyed their lesson in laughing and are now
disciples of the School of Clean Fun and Laughter.

l 91 8 Baseball Season
Alameda l-ligh School
LAMEDA HIGH started her baseball season at an early date, our first game
being played with Haywards High School, February 11th. VVe started
the season with four of last year's players, Neilson, Lauenstein, Garrettson
and McNutt, who was elected this year's captain. The rest of the team
was made up of last year's second team, composed of Hall, Hart, Nankervis,
"Fat" Lamborn and "Eagle" Montgomery. "Toni" Bason, "Jerry" Beaver and
'Heine" Schneider, were the new fellows out, and who showed lots of class. Captain
McNutt had to leave the ball team for a month, and during his absence "Jen" Hall
was elected captain.
The team went through its practice games without a defeatg eight games being
won while one was a tie. Our first game was with Haywards, and the C0llIll1l'y boys
proved to be an easy mark for our fellows, the score being 18-3. VVe played them
a return game the next week at Alameda, our second team was used until they had
given Haywards five runs to their none. The first team was then sent in to save the
game, which they managed to do, the final score being 7-5. The Deaf and Dumb
School was our next victim, and we ran up a score ot' 8-0 in five innings, and then
our opponents' dinner bell rang and we were left standing on the field wondering
what had happened. Our next game was with Lowell. This resulted in a 5-1 vic-
tory for us. St. Mary's second team was next taken down the line by a 4-3 score.
On a return game a week later the best we could get was a 4-4 tie. On the 9th of'
March the team journeyed over to Hitchcock Military Academy and inflicted a 12-4
upon them. The last practice game of the season was with San Jose High. I-lagged
ball was played on both sides, but we managed to finish in the lead with a score
of 4-2. Owing to poor weather conditions our games with Lick-VVilmerding and the
California Freshmen game had to be called off.

"Fat" Lamborn struck out the first three Lowell men to face him. Bacon started
things for us in the first by singling to center, he was advanced to third by McKean,
and scored on a sacrifice fly by Nielson. Things went along slowly for Lowell
throughout the whole game, they were not able to touch Lamborn's offerings. Ala-
meda scored once against in the fifth inning, and to make things a trifle sat'er they
scored three more in the seventh. Lowell seemed to come to life in the ninth, when
three singles and a walk gave them their only run. 'Toni' Bacon's hitting featured
the game, while "Fat" Lamborn with sixteen strikeouts against the city boys was
also quite an attraction. Score:

ALAMEDA 12-I-IITCHCOCK 4.
The team journeyed to .San Rafael on the 9th of March, and they sure took their
batting and fielding eyes with them. Montgomery started the game for us and the
Hitchcock players didn't know whether they were playing ball or doing military
drill, when they faced our "Eagle" Montgomery. Our fellows started oft' the first
inning with a total of four runs. Hitchcock never had a chance to score until the
fourth when, due to the breaks of the game, they managed to get the bases "loaded."
Lamborn went in to pitch at this stage of the game, and managed to get out with
only two runs scored on him. Alameda's fighting spirit was then aroused, the whole
team practically secured hits, and used inside baseball to the extent of getting six
more runs. Hitchcock managed to get two more runs in the seventh, due to an
error in the outfield. Hart featured the willow with four hits. "Ike" Garrettson
robbed their catcher of a possible home run in center field. Lauenstein fielded the
ball pretty in the infield with seven assists and two put outs to his credit. At the rate
the boys went in that game things look fine for the league games. Score:

Alameda defeated San Jose at Bay View Park on Saturday morning, April 13,
in a very loose game. Alameda started the fireworks in the first inning when "Ike"
Garrettson was hit by the ball, stole second and third, and was safe at home when,
on the throw in, he was hit for the second time. San Jose scored in the third on
a double and a sacrifice. We came right hack at them, when "Heine" McNutt was
walked, stole second, and scored on Lauenstein's single to center. Alameda got
their other two runs through ragged ball, and San Jose did likewise, obtaining their
extra run. Alameda showed more inside baseball than her opponents and were
able to show the public this, thereby winning the game without hits. Score:

ALAMEDA 1-FREMONT 0.
Alameda made their first appearance in a league game when she defeated Fre-
mont by a score of 1-0. Both teams played rather loose ball in some innings, but thc
game as a whole was very satisfactory. "Tonii' Bacon singled to right in the first,
Hart sacrificed and Bason went to third. Beaver made an infield out, Hall walked,
Neilson grounded to the shortstop who fumbled, letting Bacon score. Schneider
struck out. f
Things looked bad for Alameda in the fourth when Wilson, the Fremont catcher,
hit one to left for three bags with no one out. "Eagle" Montgomery showed his
pitching ability when he struck out the next two men, and made the third man
pop-up for the third out.
Things looked bad for Alameda again in the sixth, when with a man on first
and second, Falt, the Fremont pitcher, hit one togleft field that looked like a sure
hit, but "Heine" Schneider was there a million when he turned a complete sumer-
sault and came up with the ball in his possession, and doubled the man on second.
Montgomery, our sturdy little southpaw, must be given a great deal of credit for
the way he baffled the Fremont players, not only at the bat, but on the bases. Score:

"Bob" Lamborn pitched our third league game on April 12 at Lincoln Park,
Alameda, and let University down with two hits. Although we only secured six
hits ourselves, the team showed its baseball knowledge throughout the entire game.
Alameda started the fireworks going in the first inning when we scored twice.
Bacon was an infield victim. "Heine" McNutt singled to left, Beaver followed with
a ticket to the same destination, which placed "Heine" on third. Nielson secured
a walk, which filled the bases, Schneider grounded out to the infield, McNutt and
Beaver scoring. Garrettson flew out to deep center. We scored two more in the
third, with a walk, singles and an error. University scored its only run of the
game in the third. Blackburn walked and stole second, and scored on two infield
outs. University was completely outclassed during the game. They did not appear

players. Giving all credit to "Tech," our boys should have won that game, which
Page Eighty-four THE ACORN
would have practically cinched the championship. Our fellows had "Tech" scared
to death by the fourth inning when we had them 3-0. "Tech." scored one in the
fourth when Vivaras hit one to left, stole second and scored on a hit by great
Gilesin. They scored again i11 the' fifth' on a walk, a' hit and' an' error., In their part
of the seventh, with two outs, Rubin was hit by Lamborn, now pitching for Ala-
meda: Montgomery had the "Tech." batters baffled while he was in the box, but
lost his control, and our other pitcher, "Fat" Lamborn, went in. With Rubin on
first, Vivaras got "peeved" and thought he had- better bust one, so much to our
regret, he hit one to deep left for a single. Rubin scored on the play, whichf tied the
score and on a throw to-second to catch Vivaras, Freitas' scored from third, thereby
bringing in the winning run. "Tech," scored two' more runs by an error" and two
hits. Alameda came back in her half of the inning determined to fight till' therlast

safe on a fie1der's choice, they bbth scored when "Jen" Hall hit one to left for a
home run. "Eagle" Montgomery pitching for us held Oakland helpless until' the

1917 Football Team
Illi l"OO'l'BALl. season of 1917, taken a whole, was very successful. The
season opened with only tive veterans, and not u1ucl1 new material to pick
from. But by steady and hard work Otto developed a team, which although
light, was speedy and consistent.
' The season was opened by a victory over Cogswell 25 to 0, and from
then on the team held their own with the other high schools of the bay cities, for
just three high schools defeated us. They were, in the practice games, Lowell, and
in the League games, Fremont and Oakland. Besides these three defeats by high
schools, we lost only three other games, to outside teams. By defeating Cogswell
Lick-XVilmerding, Oakland Technical and Berkeley, we certainly showed that
Alameda had a team as good as the best of them. After losing the tirst two league
games, the fellows did not quit, but worked harder and won their last three games.
The team of ,17 has several things to be praised for. First, Berkeley was
defeated much worse than the score indicated. Ever since Rugby has been played
at Alameda High School, there has never been a team that could defeat Berkeley.
They won the A. C. A. l.. championship from us in '14, '15 and '16. But the team
of '17, by hard work and good playing, defeated Berkeley for the first time.
The game was full of pep, and up to the last minute, when Tommy ltacon
Priya' Eigllfy-eigllf THE ACORN
scored the lone try of the game, it looked like a win for either side. After getting
this advantage Alameda worked hard to keep it and the game ended, with Alameda
3, Berkeley 0. And the impossible had been accomplished.
The second thing Alameda has to be proud of, is that five of the team were
chosen for the Alameda County All Stars. They were all good players and deserved
to be on the team. These players, Bacon, Bishop, Marriott, L. Smith and Beaver,
all played a fast game when the Alameda County All Stars defeated the San Fran-
cisco All Stars by a score of 11-3.
The team was composed of:
L. Bishop 1captainJ H. Corsen L. Smith
T. Hutt F. Stafford H. McNutt

The prospects for next term's football team are the best we have had for sev-
eral years., Only four of last year's team will not be with us, as three are graduat-
ing and one has dropped out of school. The remaining members form a strong
neucleus for a championship team. The fellows we lose are Moore, Bishop, Marriott
and Stafford. To fill the places of these four men there are several second team
boys who, profiting from last year's experience, are going to show up well.
All in all the 1918 football team should prove a winner.
THE ACORN Page Eighty-nine
Even though Alameda's team was not among the winners it prolnises a fine
chance for next year's championship. The majority of the team are now Juniors
and Sophomores. The Freshmen also look good.
There were five points made by our men and they were made by good, hard
work. John 0'Barrio swam a wonderful race, and he made Nauman work as
he never worked before. Jack Moran took a fourth place in the back stroke and
Donald Newmeyer a fourth place in the four forty. .
We had a full team and every one did his best. The team was as follows:
50 yards: C. Tarleton-D. Eberly.
100 yards: C. Tarleton-K. White.
220 yards: N. Hart-N. Winslow.
440 yards: D. Newmeyer-H. Corson.

150 yards: F. Linderman-E. Kollmeyer.
Last term the Tribune Marathon Cup, for the most men finishing, was again
won by Alameda. Led by Rutherford, Bailess, and Knowland, thirty fellows ran
under the name of the Acorn Club and brought the cup home to Alameda. T his
makes two years we have won the cup. Let's get it again next year.
Dissatisfied with the outcome of the Tribune Marathon, some Fremont High
boys challenged Alameda to a another Marathon around Lake Merritt. The fellows
showed fine pep and got up a team that ran away from Fremont High.
Those in the Tribune Marathon were as follows:
For the first time since Andy Hardin left Alameda High School, have we had a
track team. This year three fellows got in and worked hard for the honors which
In the A. C. A. L. meet Alameda entered a track team but only three fellows
showed up. They were Garrettson, Marriot, and Rutherford, These three fellows
did their best and made 1316 points for Alameda High. This was a very good av-
erage for three fellows.
Garrettson won the shot put, Marriot finished second in the broad jump, seventh
in the high jump. Rutherford ran to second place in the mile.
In the California lnterscholastic meet these three fellows again entered and in
this meet male 11 points. Rutherford won the mile race: marriot came second in
the 100-yard race: and Garrettson won second in the shot put.
Garrettson won his Block A in the A. C. A.'L. All three of the boys received
Block A for making points in the C. I. F. These fellows certainly deserve credit
for the way they worked and for the fine spirit they showed. Let's get behind the
track team and make Alameda honored on the track and field events. These fel-
lows did: why shouldn't more of us get our blocks next year? VVe can get nearer
to the "most desirable" by at least turning out.

flfrom a Faculty memberl
April 16, 1918.
The Committee in Charge Ala-
meda High School, Alameda,
I have read the various com-
munications addressed to me. at
divers times, with feelings ol
mingled surprise, curiosity,
alarm and admiration. Disclos-
ing as they did so intimate a
knowledge of my private af-
fairs aud couched in a language
at once so lucid and ornate, I
could not but wonder at the
one, and laud the other.
I must confess that the ques-
tion of the identity of the au-
thor has given me much per-
plexity, resulting in the loss of
many hours to balmy and well-
earned repose, and their conse-
quent dedication to the dread
Goddess, Insomnia. Grieved
have I been at this: yet all
have I borne in a spirit of hu-
mility. Ilaffled have been my
many attempts at learning the
author's dark secret. Now,
however, you hold out to me
the spray of olive, the branch
of palm, the sign, emblem, and
insignia of peace. Allah il Al-
lah tmeaniug a little more of
the same, pleaseb. To continue:
The gracious news vouchsafed
me as to a fortune left me by a
certain time-worn member of
the faculty, has upon close in-
vestigation, proved falseg no-
where have I been able to lo-
cate the Ilarristers mentioned.
Sadly, I needs must conclude
that the firm mentioned is but
an invention, a fiction.
Alas, alas, the statements as
to my account are also falseg
I have but .98 left, not 53.50,
as erroneously stated by you.
Ehue, mea culpa, confiteor mihi,
caveat emptor, I confess the
debt you call ,to my attention
in your last letter. But I sup-
plicate you, I beseech you, by
our mutual regard for the vir-
tures of charity and Christian
forbearance, grant me a modi-
cum of credit. a little time, and

The men who fail in life and who move in the common grooves would have you
believe that "circumstances make the man" and that "position" and success are the
result of luck or good fortune. In some cases this is true, but the overwhelming ma-
jority of the world's successful men are workers, not men with exceptional natural
ability and peculiar and extraordinary talent, but simply workers and savers. They are
men who make their time count, who have not sought ease and comfort as the best to
be obtained in life. Let any of us look up at abler and more successful men, consider
the time we waste in lazy ease and in uselessly expending energy and money. There
we see the cause of our own inferiority. The workers, the persistent and intelligent
plodders are climbing the ladder and passing while we are stopping to view the beau-
tiful scenery from a round half-way up. Fortunately, the great majority of hopeful
ones need only a start. We open wide the gate to the right road-the Saving Account
and the Thrift Book. Ask about them.
