"Probably stick longer'n I will," he added, with a slow smile. ' This I heard as I walked up to where four brown, wiry and very bow- legged cowboys had just finished saddling a horse. Two of them still held the horse's head, while "Montana" was preparing to mount. The fourth, an older man, walked over to where I stood. "Stick with 'im, boy," he said, as "Montana" swung into the saddle, "Good luck to yuh!" And he was going to need luck, this tall, bronzed Knight of the Prairie. He was trying for the second time to ride Apache, the unconquerable, who for the eight years of his life had never been ridden. How well I remember the first time I saw Apache. It-was up on the summer range in the Goat Mountain country. Old Bill Lane, chief packer, who is at my side now, was with me. What a picture that colt made! He was less than a week old, tall and ungainly, with a large white diamond on his forehead, and white stockings on both hind feet. He stamped and snorted as he glared at us through wildly defiant eyes. Old Bill's eyes just shone. - "Ain't he the wild-eyed little 'Pache tho? Just lookit him! By golly, 'Pache's goin' to be his name! Ain't he a hum-dinger tho?, It was early June of the next year when we again saw Apache. Bill and I rode down to the Rancheree, and rounded up the stock. When Apache caught sight of us he turned and galloped, head high in the air, and swinging from side to side, mane and tail up and flying, a glorious picture of life, vitality and defiance. Old Bill just beamed when he saw him. He fairly raved over him. 'Pache was not the long-legged, awkward colt we had left there a year ago. He was now bigger than his mother. He had grown up to his legs, and had filled out all over. He had a fine head with flashing wild eyes that seemed to defy everything. The bedraggled coat we had left him in was now a wonderful bright bay that shone in the sun. He had a long, thick, black tail and mane that flew in the wind when PageFour gfgtn he ran. He was almost perfect. We drove the horses up to the Park, and then on into the Kings River Canyon. 'Pache and his mother we turned loose to graze up and down the Canyon. One evening around the camp-fire, when we were talking about 'Pache-he was invariably a topic-some tourist-one of those "know-it-all" kind, started to talk on 'Pache's possibilities after he was broken. 0ld Bill just grunted and looked sour. He didn't like to be told. "That horse'll never be broke," he said, and walked away. Bill's tones had carried conviction, but I don't think anyone believed him. The talkative tourist laughed, and some of the others smiled a sort of a hopeless smile as they watched Bill walk slowly away. I didn't believe him myself, but I have since learned to believe him. When it comes to horses, Bill knows. When we brought the horses up next summer, 'Pache was a three year old, and full grown. He was now old enough to break, so one of the packers, named Hugh Traweek, volunteered. Bill and I went down to the meadow with him. We drove 'Pache into the corral and tried to catch him. We talked, coaxed, did everything for over an hour, but couldn't get near him. I'll swear I never saw such a snorting, rag- ing, lighting devil in my life. "He was sure playful," as Bill put it, "just wanted to shake hands with somebody." Finally Bill roped and threw him for us. We blind-folded him, and put a saddle and hackamore on him. Then we let him up, still blind-folded. Hugh gave another pull at the latigo, and with that, 'Pache went up in the air. Roy Work, another puncher, was holding his head. When he came down he pawed Roy, but only hit him a glancing blow on the thigh. It gave us a good scare tho'. Well, he cooled otl' and Hugh got on. He didn't look over anxious, but he was game. Roy pulled the blind, and 'Pache just stood and quivered, scared stiff. Then Hugh raked him, and man alivel The air was full of horses and men for a minute or so. The way he bucked, pitched and lunged-say, you couldn't follow him, he was so fast. lt couldn't last, and after a minute or so he "dumped" Hugh. Hugh hit a rock when he came down and was pretty, badly hurt. The last thing we saw when we packed him to camp was that horse, still jumping, trying to ditch the saddle. e When we came out again, 'Pache was standing in the far end ofthe field, pawing and snorting. He'd gone over backwards and broken the cinch. Meanwhile 'Pache's fame spread far and wide. Men came from everywhere to try to ride him, and always went away disappointed. All this time 'Pache was getting fiercer. He was never really mean, yet several men had been badly injured while handling him. One day when he was a seven year old, we tried to pack him. We went through the usual battle saddling him. Then we hung packs on him and he threw them. We hung packs on him seven other times and he piled 'em as fast as we hung 'em on. Boy! You should have heard Bill swear. Then one day a man came into the canyon on a big black horse. He was tall and sinewy, with a sunburned complexion. His hair was brown and slightly wavy. He had steady, but very kind grey eyes, a thin nose with delicate nostrils, and a strong straight mouth. He couldn't have been called good looking, yet there was .something attractive-sort of "real man" look-about him. We didn't know who he was or what he was, and we didn't care. He was sure O. K., and that's about all that counts anyway. Later he told us he was from Montana, so we nicknamed him "Mon- tana." After Montana had been around about three days, Pete Houcks came through from Independence. Pete had heard about 'Pache and had come over to ride him. Bill, Montana and I went down to the meadow to help him, and after the usual fuss, cbs gfnfn PageFiw we got 'Pache saddled. Pete climbed on, and that's about all. 'Pache hardly got started before Pete was off, and Pete's considered a pretty good rider, too. He looked sort of foolish and surprised when he walked over to us. Then "Montana" spoke for the first time since we saddled 'Pache. "You boys mind if I try to ride that horse?" he asked. Nope, nobody cared, so we caught him and blinded him again. "Let'er buck," he yelled, and scratched 'Pache as Pete pulled the blind. 'Pache went off like a steel trap. If any of us had expected to see "Montana" piled in those first few bucks, he was disappointed. "Montana" stuck! Talk about ride-that man could ride circles around anything I ever saw. And buck? That horse did everything any horse ever did before, and then some. And the way we yelled. Old Bill was just a whoopin,' and the rest of us were not far behind. It lasted about five minutes. Then the yelling suddenly stopped. 'Pache had reared and gone over backwards, crushing "Montana" under him. It is now a year since we carried "Montana" into camp, a horribly broken man. But he was only broken, not beaten. For here he was, the same tall, brown, quiet old "Montana," with the slow, rare smile, preparing to again ride the hoofed demon that had so narrowly missed his life a year ago. He was in the saddle now. 'Pache just stood still and quivered when the blind was pulled, only this time it was rage, not fright, that made him quiver. "Boys, Pm going to break him, or else he'll break me" said "Montana," and then he raked 'Pache. The horse started harder than ever before, but "Montana" stuck. We were all yelling at the top of our voices. Ten minutes passed. It seemed like hours had gone by. Our yelling had slowly died out. There was something too ominous-too deadly-about this heart-breaking battle between that hoofed Satan and the big, quiet man, to permit yelling. They were going faster. 'Pache's first efforts to throw this man, who seemed to have grown to his back, were doubled. Twice in the next few minutes he reared up as if to go over backwards, only to turn like a cat and land on his feet, pitching and spinnifng harder than ever. He was bucking as he never did before. Three-quarters of an hour passed. -God-would he never stop? Then, as quickly as it had started, it ended. 'Pache seemed to throw everything into a last, mighty jump. He went high into the air with a heart-rending scream, and came down with his legs apart. He stood quivering, and as he stood, "Montana" slowly reeled and fell from the saddle, never to move again. Even as he fell, 'Pache's knees doubled under him, and he fell over on his side. He gave a last defiant, convulsive struggle, and was still. An hour later Bill and I walked over to where 'Pache lay. There he was, a great dead mass, that only an hour before had been an erupting volcano of live and un- conquerable spirit. I looked at Old Bill. I think his eyes were wet, but I'm not sure, because I looked through a considerable mist myself. Anyhow, his voice sounded husky. "God-But wasn't he a real horse tho?" was all his said. We looked again. He lay with head thrown back and one front foot raised, un- conquerable and defiant even in death. HENRY GUTTE, June '20.

Very early in the term, the class organized and elected the following officers: President, Russell Knowland: Vice-President, Maybelle Worthen: Secretary, Jean Hunt: Editor, Louise Hanley: Class Representatives, Melita Hutt and John McKean. At this time there began among the members of the class their continual strong interest in school activities, as was shown by the candy sale that was held to swell the Motion Picture Machine Fund. In the High Freshman term the officers were: President, Kruger Dunbar, Vice- President, Jean Hunt: Secretary, Elinor Gutsch: Editor, Grace-Marion Elster: Repre- sentatives, Melita Hutt and John McKean. Another candy sale was held, this time to pay for a page in the 'fAcorn." The Low Sophomore officers were as follows: President, John McKean: Vice- President, Margaret Spruanceg Secretary, George Clark: Editor, Kruger Dunbar: Representatives, Russell Knowland and Angie Perry. The officers for the High Sophomore term were: President, William Spruanceg Vice-President, Melita Hutt: Secretary, Colby Tarleton: Editor, Margaret Spruancc. A very successful party with entertainment and dancing was held at the home of Dorothy Tabor. It was in this term that Miss Blanche DuBois became our class advisor. Owing to the influenza epidemic, the Low Junior term was very much broken up. Nevertheless, the class organized under the following officers: President, Colby Tarleton: Vice-President, Dorothy Tabor: Secretary, Christian Snead: Representa- tives, Thelma Burg and Kruger Dunbar: and the class pin, a small acorn surrounded with pearls, was chosen. In the High Junior term the following officers were elected: President, Chris- tian Snead, Vice-President, Grace-Marion Elster: Secretary, George Clark: Editor, Dorothy Tabor. A successful prom .was given under the management of Christian Snead, and Russell Knowland managed a "movie" show given to start a fund with which to purchase scenery for productions given by the school. The Class was unusually active under the administration of the following offi- cers in the Low Senior term: President, Cyril Smith, Vice-President, Edwina Osborne: Secretary, Kenneth Ward: Representatives, Dorothy Tabor and Christian Snead. The class colors, green and gold, were chosen at the first meeting. Early in the term, the girls of the class gave an enjoyable and successful reception to the Low Freshman girls. The Senior Play, "Green Stockings," was coached by Fred Carlyle, and managed by Christian Snead, and was in every way a great success. In December the class entertained the members of the graduating class of January, 1920, with a cabaret supper at Haight School. The last event of the term was a candy sale. The officers chosen for the High Senior term were: President, Russell Know- land, Vice-President, Elinor Gutschg Secretary, Stewart Menzies: Editor, Saima Koski. Early in the term the boys purchased their class hats which were of gray felt trimmed with a gold band. The Senior Vaudeville, which was given in May, proved to be one of the successful events of the term. The main activity of the semester was the publication of the "Acorn," which we hope everyone will enjoy. Now the class is looking forward to the Senior Dance and to the final event of its High School career, graduation. S. K., June '20.

C. 3 T IS the 17th day of June, 1920, and the graduting class of the Alameda High School is seated in the parlors of Madame Fortuna, the famous clairvoyant. The room is dark save in the center where the fortune teller is bending over a shining crystal. Suddenly the clear glass becomes clouded as a hushed silence ensues, and the letters "1920" are seen plainly written in the ball. The scene changes, and in the crystal appears a flower bedecked stage on which stands about 65 girls and boys, each proudly holding something which looks very much like a diploma tied with gold and white ribbon. Again the ball becomes clouded, and this time in its midst is written "1935." Then is seen: A village in Timbuctoo entirely peopled by brown-skinned natives. A second glance shows a group of young cannibals being taught to sing psalms and read the Bible by a fair haired missionary, whom we recognize as none other than Everett Thompson. Next is seen the glittering lights of a Broadway theatre, the sign boards ot' which read, "The Divine Edwina, America's Sarah Bernhardt. Miss Osborne's 63rd week. Standing room only." Elwood Patterson, a noted traveling salesman, proudly displays his famous cold cream whose label says, "Get rid of your freckles. Don't look like a turkey's egg. Use Patterson's cold cream." Helen Lippardt, having just inherited a million dol- lars, is his best customer, and buys two tons annually. Hazel Haefner is seen busily teaching little Sandwiches in the Sandwich Islands to shimmy. She is assisted by Leland Wade, who teaches the latest thing in hand ball. Stewart Menzies owns a most popular shop in Emeryville. Its sign is known to everyone, and consists of three gilded balls. Now a huge dance hall is beheld whose sign reads, "The New Arcadia-under management of Kenneth Ward. Step in and hear our S100-a-night-all-girl-jazz-band." "Stepping in" who is seen but Ida Ross at the piano, Marion Martens blowing vigor- ously on a "sax," Ermyll Hunter fussing over a broken string on her banjo, Helen Fromme beating the drums to death, while Thelma Burg plays coquettishly on a time-worn "gazook." Some jazz band! Class Prophecy G b g Q f U I U Page Seventeen Esther Lang is busily engaged in raising forget-me-nots on the banks of the Amazon. Esther says it pays, too, because Norman Coryell, who is always appropri- ately sending bouquets to certain young ladies, buys all she grows. George Clark is a sailor. He has gone as far north as Alaska, and feels sure he could have discovered the North Pole if Peary hadn't beaten him to it. ' Ruth Butterfield is the most popular school teacher -in the United States. She doesn't believe in homework, never gives below a 2, -and demands no admit slips. Colby Tarleton is recognized as head of Honolulu's most famous dress-making establishment. Ratfia skirts are his specialty. Dorothy Fifer is the founder of "Fifer,s Select School for Sub-Debs." Special courses in "How to Obtain Young Men's Fraternity Pins," "How to Vamp Properly," and "How to Bluff in History." i Tom Halcrow is the originator of an automobile which has proved even better liked than the one-time popular Ford. It is now correct to drive a "Tin Tommy" rather than an Elizabeth. Lucile Ehrenberg is private secretary to one of Philadelphia's most famous bankers. She is known as having the most beautiful sweaters that side of the Rocky Mountains. ' Robert Kirkwood, Alexander Lowe, Charles Hopps and Wendall Gammell formed a corporation with which they intend to become the Standard Oil's only rivals. , Marie Onions is in Manchuria leading a "votes for women" campaign., As yet we haven't heard of women's suffrage from that region, but where there's life there's hope, and Marie is surely lively. Gordon Heid is happily married. At this time he is the proud possessor of the tennis championship of Bay Farm Island. Edith Birbeck's dazzling smile is seen on the back of every magazine. The words under the picture assure you that Colgatets is the only toothpaste. Don Baron is known as the California poet, and in his velvet smock, Van'Dyke beard and Windsor tie he looks the part. Elinor Gutsch is living in France, where her string of admirers win for her the title of "Europe's Golden Vampf' When she tires of juggling with hearts, she comes to Hollywood where she has a standing contract with the "Sheza Bara Film Co." All the world is crazy over John Philpott's violin playing. He is a second Fritz Kreisler, but in spite of his fame comes back to the old A. H. S. every year to give the students a treat. Frances Orr, Ruth Miller and Virginia Burkhardt are all happily married. The crystal refuses to show the faces of their respective husbandsy ' Kenneth Malone is chief electrician at the Columbia, Oakland, where he receives many shocks watching the chorus girls perform. Melita Hutt, before her marriage to an English Duke, traveled in Egypt, where she was greatly interested in discovering the identity of the Sphinx. Al Brooks is on the Orpheum Circuit, successfully demonstrating Feist songs. Grace-Marion Elster has the regulation author's garret in New York. Occasion- ally magazines such as "Snappy Stories," "Police Gazette," etc., buy a story by way of encouragement, but between times she lives on toothpicks and watery Christian Snead is America's best loved movie star. His slick hair is said by numerous old-timers to resemble that of the one time popular matinee idol, Wally Reid. Myrtle Ganahl is a very successful kindergarten teacher. Perhaps her experi- ence in the 1920 Freshman Reception is responsible for her success. Gerald Daborvich is assistant professor of U. S. history in the University of Kokklvitjkschio, situated in Northern Siberia. Page Eighteen ' ' afgtn Edwina Graham and Elaine Wallin are joint owners of a sandwich shop which has completely taken the after-the-dance-or-show trade from Hamburger Joe's. Cyril Smith sells more buttons than anybody else in the notion department at Jake Goldstein's second hand store. One look into his blue eyes and the girls simply have to buy anything he shows them. Across the aisle Henry Joachim has a busy time selling pink shirts. Melba Curwin is happily married and living in Nebraska with her farmer husband. "Leap Year Methods de Luxe" is the title of this season's best seller. It is netting quite a fortune for its authoress, Rae Cochrane. Henry Gutte has surplanted Rube Goldberg in the favor of all Americans. His characterization of his high school days rival Goldberg's famous "Boob McNutt" pictures. George Knudsen is a barber in Russia, where he has started a fad for smooth faces. Needless to say he is doing a "Russian" business. Pavlowa having become too aged to perform, Aileen Hrubanik has fallen heir to her list of admirers. Bob Laughlin is America's most idolized ball player. The Giants and the White Sox fight an annual battle for his services on their respective teams. Dorothy Tabor has a huge studio in New York where she paints the wonderful pictures of cats and flowers which have made her name famous as far west as Milpitas. The crystal now shows a crowded court room. The jury has just brought forth the verdict of "not guilty," while the crowd goes crazy with joy, and surges forward to congratulate upon winning his 23rd case, America's most famous criminal lawyer, John McKean. Saima Koski is still maintaining her reputation for brilliancy. She has just written an essay on the Ulmpeccability and Mollification of Ligniperdons in Uruguay," which is very popular with the debutant set. Mary and Louise Bajuk own a huge millinery shop in Pittsburg. They specialize in copying Paris hats, and the copies are so good they can't be told from the originals. Howard Gray is thought to be a serious rival of De Palma, although Charles Couchot in his Ford twin-eight is a close second. Enid Boyce is happily married. Her biscuits are the delight of her friends, who make it a point to drop in about supper time. Kathryn Rock is New Orleans' favorite society leader. She has a reputation of being able to drink more pink lemonade than anyone south of Mason-Dixon's line. From New Orleans the scene now shifts to Milpitas, Cal., where a building bearing the sign "The Milpitas Blabber" is seen. Looking through the window we see Russ Knowland writing editorials in support of Senator Dunbar, who, it is rumored, is about to receive the nomination for Governor, on the Anti-Everything ticket. And then comes a sight which brings tears to the eyes of almost every female member of the Class of June '20. It is the image of Harold Vesper, the "pride of Alameda." He is in the hands of cannibals, and about to be put in the pot for supper. However, rather than receive such a death at their hands, he suddenly plucks a collar button from out of his shirt, and commits suicide by swallowing this. The picture fades. The class stares at the ball with amazed faces as each heaves a sigh of relief. Then once again the crystal shines brightly, and, traced in shining red, the class reads the words, "The best of luck to each one of you!" G. M. E., June '20.

Q 9' T WAS with some trepidation, we must admit, that we, the dauntless class of' December 1920, first entered through the shining portals of A. H. S. in January, 1917. At our first and joyous class meeting we elected the following officers: President ....................,......,.................,............ Clifford Traphagen Vice-President ..........i.,........ ......,.,. E ugene Sommers Secretary .............,..............o ,..... ........... D o rothy Carter Administrative Board ........,. ............ L enore Paul Administrative Board ............................i.,.......,..... Ernest Dunbar During our very first month we held a rip-snorting hot-dog, pie and cake sale for the noble purpose of buying our page in the "Acorn," Some of our members assisted in the Senior Vaudeville, indeed a unique honor. A member of our class took 454 points at the A. C. A. L. Track Meet, a thing few Freshmen have ever done. In our Sophomore year we were victorious over the Freshman Class in the many events of' the annual Tie-Up. The eminent picnic we gave at Redwood Peak one beautiful summer evening is well remembered by many of our class. We became Juniors and purchased our class pins, the prettiest and most dis- tinctive then on the market. As High Juniors we gave the Prom, the success of which created a widespread sensation throughout the city. It was the best attended Prom ever held. On Circus Day we glorified ourselves again by surpassing all expec- tations of good results on a hot dog sale. At last we have reached the longed for state of Seniorhood. The officers for this term are: President .................. .............. L loyd Combs Vice-President ........ ......... M abel Linderman Secretary ............................ .......... G arland Bunker Editor .....................,............... ........,.... V erna Greely Administrative Board .....,,. ...........,,........ D oris King Administrative Board ..,.................,............. Frederick de Bez-na The girls gave the customary reception to the Freshmen, carrying out, however, a George and Martha Washington idea in the program and decorations, which the late start in the term enabled them to do. Now turn to the crowning glory of our career, the Senior Play. Was not the "Admirable Crichton" grand? It was the most difficult play ever acted by students of the A. H. S. We are nearing the end of our bright and sparkling career, having but one more term left. Many important things may happen in that time in which we will take active part, but they cannot be herein recorded. Here's hoping that we do so well that the school cannot help but cherish our memory fondly, as we shall cherish its. M. S., Dec. '20.

H enry Gutte HE SEMESTER August-December, 1919, was an active one for all con- cerned. A great deal was accomplished financially, socially, and in the line of athletics. At the first of the term the Administration outfitted the Rugby team with new uniforms. Whenfihe season, wasghalf over, the Oakland schools formed a league of their own, leaving Alameda in a position where she must either wait for about a month before playing any games, or else take u,p the American game. She chose the latter course, necessitating the outfitting of a new team with another new set of uniforms. The compulsory student dues system, which has been in effect since the spring term of 1918, was enforced strictly, and only those who could not afford to pay were exempted. To stimulate the early payment of student dues, a dansant was held at Porter School. The admittance price was ten,cents and a ,student card, and judging from the crowd that was there, one would say that the system of having to hold at student card in order to partake in student activities had worked. Among the many other activities of the term were "Tag Day,"r on' which tags were sold for the purpose of helping to outfit the American team, and "Sirkus Day." About S200 was cleared on 'Tag Day," while "Sirkus Day" netted-8106s There were also several ffmoviesf' when the High School' movingrpicture' machine was used, and several other dansants. ' Student Body meetings were held every third Wednesday between the second and third periods. The attendance was good and the meetings peppy. Order was kept during meetings through the aid of the Boys' and Girls' Judiciary Boards. The term was also a success financially. Starting the semester with barely enough money to cover the bills on hand, the Administration prospered, and at the end of its term of office left a surplus of over S200 and no outstanding bills.

Students will long remember the song entitled, "Old MacDonald Had a Farm," which was taught by J. A. McCarthy, War Camp Community Service leader. The meetings were held regularly and were well attended. The Ala- meda High School Jazz Band furnished the .music and entertainment. Due to the enthusiasm and earnestness of Tommy Halcrow, yell leadergand to the co-operation of the Student Body, a greatimprovement was made in the rooting. The fellows were advised to stop stamping and whistling, and to expend their energies in yell- ing and applauding. A new yell, called "Whispering A-l-a" was introduced. A paper drive was held in order to pay for a great deal of athletic goods bought by the administration for this term and next. This drive was ably managed by Dave Sharpsteen. , .. l A This term the big event was "Old Clothes Day," managed by the Boys' Judiciary Board. It was the biggest and best "Old Clothes Day" ever held, due to the way the students backed up the Board, and tothe spirit they showed in helping to make the day a success. I, g The Administration' this term was 'wellpbacked up by the Student Body, and it is only through thisiunity and co-operation that the term has been such a success. ' ' ' U ,Q I A. 0'B., Dec.

Toward the beginning of the term a very successful dansant was managed by the Board. "Circus Day," the crowning event of the term, was given under the auspices of the Boys' Board. "Circus Day" was a new and a large undertaking, and the way in which it was handled certainly bespeaks praise for the Board. 'Special credit is due to Cyril Smith, Chairman of the Board, who managed the day. The members of the Boys' Board for the term ending December, 1919,, were: C. Smith, Chairman, M. C. Hopps, H. Gutte, R. Knowland, A. Durst, R. Bailey, J. McKean, S. Baum, C. Snead, C. Traphagen and L. Smith. SPRING ' During the present term the Board has also been very successful. The first matter brought before the Board was the question of smoking on the school grounds during school hours. Through the influence of the board this was stopped without any trouble. The main event that the present board handled was "Old Clothes Day." It was a very strenuous "Old Clothes Day," the "biggest and best ever," and much credit must be given the Boys' Board' for the way it was managed. The members of this term's board are as follows: R. Knowland, Chairman, C. Traphagen, L. Combs, K. Dunban, K. Ward, J. McKean, C. Snead, H. Gutte, C. Smith, A. Malm and C. Tarleton. I H. GL, June '20.

Hli Girls' .ludicial Board is composed of High Senior, Low Senior and High I Junior girls, elected by the Administrative Board for a period of one sem- ester. Last term the members were: Melba Curwin, Melita Hutt, Elinor Gutsch, Dorothy Tabor, Artha Bartels, Dorothy Anderson, Lueile Ehren- berg, lidwina Osborne, and .luna Judson, with Marion Linderman as Chair- man and Grace Marion Elster as Secretary. The duties of the Board were carried out with great success, and in addition they gave to the Boys' Judiciary Board. to the Senior boys, and to the men members of the faculty, a luncheon that was thoroughly enjoyed by all, and that helped to pro- mote school spirit. The Girls' Judiciary Board also played an important part in the A. Il. S. Sirkus in which the girls had a fortune-telling booth. SPRING This term the members ot' the Board are: Grace-Marion lilster, Thelma Burg, Melita llutt, Lucile lihrenberg, Dorothy Anderson, Doris King, Dorothy Tabor, and Irma Martiuoni, with Melba Curwin as Chairman, Elinor Gutsch as Secretary, and Miss Haworth as faculty advisor. Many plans are being made for the future, among them being one for a dansaut. The Board has done everything possible to promote a feeling ot' co-operation among the girls ot' the Alameda lligh School, and has become an important feature in the school. We hope it will always be as successful in the future as it has been in the past, and that it will always receive the heartiest support from the Student Body. E.

At the first meeting of the new term the following committees were appointed by the president: THE SENIOR ADVISORY COMMITTEE, which is to aid and give advice to all incoming freshmen. THE WELFARE COMMITTEE, whose duty it is to look after the welfare of the girls and the association as a whole. THE SOCIAL COMMITTEE, which furnishes the entertainment for each meeting. THE SPORTS AND PASTIME COMMITTEE, which encourages athletics among the girls by starting teams of swimming, tennis, baseball, and basketball. The first event was the Freshman Reception, held at Porter School, which proved a success. After the program, under the management of Thelma Burg, the rest of the afternoon was devoted to dancing. A set of resolutions on simplicity of dress was adopted by the girls in one of the meetings. Then, through the Welfare Committee, "Dime for a Dolly" tags were sold in order to raise money to send to Belgium to purchase dolls for the children's Christmas. In the letter of thanks received afterwards in acknowledgement, it stated that as the money was sufficient to feed and clothe an orphan, it had gone for the purpose of adopting a war orphan, so now the Girls' Association is busy getting clothes together for its newly adopted ward. One of the most important functions of the term was a Sunset Supper given on the beach at Bay Farm Island. Almost all of the girls attended and took part in the games, especially the baseball game between the women faculty and the girls. At one of our meetings Miss Irene Williamson, a graduate of the Alameda High School, gave us an interesting talk on the activities of Mills College. At a later meeting Miss Marion Mitchell, who served several years as a war worker in France, gave an interesting account of her experiences there. Miss Mitchell is also a graduate of the Alameda High School. D. T., June '20.

The first social event was the Freshman Reception, managed by Marjorie Spencer, with its usual good program, followed by dancing. An exhibition of 'clothing for Jeanne, our adopted war orphan, was held in the girls' rest room for several days. The girls have certainly shown the "right spirit" and given most generously. The Welfare Committee was responsible for the packing and shipping of the clothing for little Jeanne. They have also had a couple of pictures framed for the girls' rest room, and are planning various other things. The Social Committee has organized a Girls' Jazz Band and is planning to give a party in the future for the Girls' Asso- ciation.

Page Forty-nine lee Club FALL One of the most active organizations in the Alameda High School is the Girls' Glee Club. The size of the club has been increasing each term until now there are about forty members. Besides leading in the community singing at the student body meetings, the Glee Club sang several selections before the Teachersi Convention at the Oakland Auditorium. After this appearance the girls began rehearsals for the operetta, "The Feast of the Little Lanterns," which was given on December 20th at the Porter Auditorium. SPRING This term the Girls' Glee Club began with thirty-eight members. This is a good beginning, and it is hoped that more interest will be taken in the Glee Club than ever before. ' A candy sale was given-on the 8th of April and S32 was cleared. Part of thuis went to pay the orchestra director at the last graduation, because not being a mem- ber of the school department at that time he could not be paid out of the school money. The surplus from this candy sale, together with that cleared on the Chinese Operetta of last term, has been put in the bank for the Girls' Glee Club. The Operetta was such a success last term that one of the members of the Adel- phian Club asked the Glee Club to sing parts of it before the Club Convention, on the evening of April twentieth. V B.

Stratton the A. H. S. Orchestra is making excellent progress. In fact, the members have reached such a fine degree of playing that Professor Stratton is planning to enter the Alameda Or- chestra in competition with other High School orchestras of the Bay District at the Greek Theatre. The occasion will be the festival of orchestral music to be held on Shakespeare Day. The student-musicians have been and are working faithfully, and good music is sure to be furnished by the twenty piece orchestra at the graduation exercises, the Senior Play, and other school affairs in which it will have a part. E. T., 'June '20, E b 2 Q f U t 11 Page Fifty-one ooting FALL T THE beginning of the Fall term, school spirit was practically dead. The Rugby team, although a good one, did not receive the whole-hearted sup- port of the Student Body, and although the rooting during Student meet- ings was good, at the games it was poor and disorganized. However, when Alameda took up American football, the spirit changed. At the St. Mary's game, there was a good crowd, and they kept offthe field. The rooting section at the Alameda-Oakland game showed that Alameda could support its team when it felt like it. Practically the whole Student Body was there, and under the direction of Yell Leader Noyes, assisted by Tom Halcrow, it "rooted', as no other A. H. S. rooting section had ever done before, and filled the team w-ith the spirit that helped win the day for Alameda. SPRING Baseball never has received the whole-hearted support of Alameda's student body, and although we had an exceptionally fine ball team, this term was no excep- tion. There was always the faithful few out to root, but their rooting was unorgan- ized. However there is really an excuse for the poor showing made by this term's rooting section. As was stated above, baseball never has received much support, and the fact that we only played two league games during the whole season tended very much to kill what little support there was. The rooting at the meetings was good and well led, and praise is due to Tom Halcrow for the work he did in attempting to build a creditable rooting section. J. R. K., June '20, Page Fifty-tfwo G b 2 5 f U t n XI? X HM Om 0 QWQS reen Stock ings RODUCED by the Class of June '20, this play proved as great a success as any former one, and many consider it even went a step beyond. "Green Stockings" was a comedy, and proved a great success financially as well as dramatically. The credit for this is due to the spirit with which the Senior Class worked, and especially to the ceaseless efforts which Miss DuBois as class advisor, Mr. Carlisle as coach, and Christian Snead as manager, put forth to make the play the success that it was. The play itself was admirably suited for High School production, for the lines and acting were not beyond the ability of the cast, and yet required hard wortk and studying. It was an English comedy, and depicted the life of the upper class with much reality. The plot held the interest of the audience from start to finish, and frequent bits of comedy made everyone go home feeling that this Senior play had been even more than usually worth while. ' ' SYNOPSIS OF PLAY In the first act Phyllis, the younger of the Faraday sisters, is about to marry Robert Tarver, but does not wish to hurt Celia's feelings. The other sisters, Madge and Evelyn, who are younger than Celia, have been married and Celia has had to wear green stockings at their weddings, as is the English custom. Phyllis, Madge and Evelyn cook up a scheme in which Admiral Grice is to propose to Celia. Celia, the oldest of the sisters, is a rather severe English girl, and returns from a trip in time to realize their scheme. She makes up her mind not to be the victim, so P1192 Fiffy-fvuf at D Z 5 C 0 I I1 announces her engagement to the imaginary "Wobbles," who is at that time fighting in Africa, a very safe place to have him. Celia then discloses her secret to Aunt Ida, and the two decide that it will be best to kill off "Wobbles," or Colonel Smith. Second Act. Celia announces in the "Times" the death of Colonel Smith, and the whole family grieves with her over his loss. When things are going along just about as Celia wants them, lo and behold, who should turn up but Colonel Vavasour, a close friend of Colonel Smith, who was at Smith's side when he died. Celia is entirely bewildered when she sees all her plans crushed. Third Act. Celia is persuaded to remain at home, and learn all about the death of Colonel Smith from Colonel Vavasour. She becomes suspicious when the Colonel produces the letter which she had written at the request of her family to "Wobbles" the same evening that she had announced her engagement to him. Her suspicions are confirmed when Colonel Vavasour fumbles in his pocket for his watch, which he had given a few minutes previously to Celia as a memento from Colonel Smith. lt is then that Celia realizes Colonel Vavasour is "Wohbles." Celia and Aunt Ida prepare to escape to America at midnight. Celia is waylaid by "Wobbles" who persuades her to remain, and she then realizes that this has not all been ini vain, and as the story goes, they are married and "live happily ever after."

Sir James Barrie, the author, is one of the greatest playwrights of the day, and he puts into all his works an amount of unusual and new interest. "The Admirable Crichton" is a play of a good deal of merit and not to be forgotten over night. Although one of Barrie's greatest plays, it is not often played on account of the diffi- culty of securing the right persons to play the parts. But this class contains much talent and Mr. Carlisle, who coached it, had no difficulty in placing the cast. Over a year ago the present High Senior Class gave a motion picture perform- ance, the proceeds of which were to be used for buying permanent scenery for the use of the school. The Low Senior Class has used this money, together with other donations, and during the week of vacation they built some scenery for the play themselves, and purchased some which will remain as school property. The school as a whole seemed to take an unusual interest, and made the play a financial success. The class voted out S200 of the profits to the "Acorn," which is being financed by the High and Low Senior classes. We may sum up by saying that "The Admirable Crichton" was a performance deserving great praise, and we hope that in the future the High School will keep up 'its standard in choosing plays. Page Ffffy-Six SYNOPSIS On the afternoon of the day on which the reception to the servants is to take place in The Loam House, Agatha and Catherine, Lady Mary's sisters, and Ernest, are quite surprised at the news of Lady Mary's engagement to Lord Brockelhurst. Treherne, who is an admirer of Catherine, and Lord Loam, their father, come in just before the time of the reception and congratulate Lady Mary upon her choice of a husband. A During the reception, the Loam family discussed the final arrangements for their yachting trip into the South Seas. The three sisters were to have but one maid, and there was some difficulty in choosing one until Crichton, the butler, suggested Tweeny, the scullery maid, with whom he was really in love. It was then decided that Tweeny should be the maid on the voyage. They had not been sailing long when the boat struck a rock and was soon dashed to pieces. Everyone was accounted' for except Lord Loam, who turned up a week later after wandering about the desert island. On the island, Crichton, the butler, proved that those who are masters at home are not always masters on an island. He, being an inventive and useful man, soon built a hut and constructed crude implements by which they killed wild animals and fowl. They lived thus for two years, almost forgetting there was an Engalnd. Being away from formali- ties and established conventions, Lady Mary realized Crichton's real worth, and the two fell in love, and their engagement was announced to the family. One day a ship was sighted, and a signal fire lighted on the island. Rescuers came and were overjoyed to find the very ones for whom they had searched nearly two years. Upon their arrival in England and their resumption of their former stations in life, Lady Mary and Crichton realized their happiness on the island had been but a dream and that they must fall back into their old positions and customs and forget the past.

The chief entertainment on the program was "Whiskers," a one act skit, coached by Mrs. Castro. This dealt with a certain young man who got into a "tight squeeze" the hour before his marriage, and only through the efforts of his friend and the mysterious "Whiskers" was he able to take the "fatal plunge." The young man in the case was Ralph Bailey, and the charming young bride, Miss Marion Linderman. Then there was Leslie Smith as "Whiskers," Audrey Durst as "best man," Arthur Bartels, Anita Clausinius and Thelma Nordlund as bridesmaids, Harriett Warnecke as "Aunt Sara," and Margaret Mehan as the maid. "Reg,' Vaughn and Paul St. Sure cracked a few good jokes, and brought us some of the latest songs from the U. C. Campus. "Bill" Pattiani, the Al Jolson of Ala- meda, gave a hobo stunt and sang a few choice songs. Then came the Jenkins sisters, Ruth and Rita, who bid fair to rival the Dolly sisters in dances and song. Mervin Rich followed in "Something New in Singing." Juliet Weinstock then gave a solo Russian dance. Throughout the performance and between acts, the High School Orchestra gave popular selections, and helped to finish off the splendid program of the evening E. O., June '20. JUNE '20 Was it a success? Well, I guess! Everything the Class of June '20 does is put over with a rare pep, and this event even surpassed former activities. The program was one which was welllchosen and offered a variety of entertainment, a large part of the talent being chosen from the class itself. The program included the following numbers: A solo by Alta Wilkinson, ac- companied by Jean Hunt. A dance by Barbara Eubanks, "Marinello," a musical comedy written by Henry Gutte and Gordon McMahon, quite a novelty with its music and fun, a "Ballet," all members being directly imported from the "Follies", A recitation by Helen Maltesta-"That Movie Gink", A girls' dancing number, where many of the newest songs were sung, and pretty dresses shown by the girls, two boxing matches, Everett Sprague vs. Elwood Massey, and Charles Corica vs. Roy Snow, then some Japanese music by Raymond Nagayama. Last but not least came the High Senior Skit, "The Obstinate Family," coached by Richard Onions. Grace Marion Elster took the part of Lucy, Stuart Menzies was James, Harford's servant, Melba Curwin was Jessy Harford, Christian Snead was Henry Harford, Leland Wade was Harford's father, Edwina Osborne was Mrs. Harford. The characters became involved in humerous situations, and the plot terminated in a most unex- pected manner. Good music was furnished and the whole show proved a decided success under the able management of Melita Hutt, and Miss DuBois, Class Advisor. E. O., June 20. Page Fifty-fight E ij g Q g g g U Freshman Receptions FALL HE Freshie Reception, held Friday, September 19th, at Porter School Audi- torium, was one of the "best ever." The Class of June '23 was welcomed by Harriet Warnecke, President of the Girls' Association, and a reply was made by the Vice-President of the Freshman Class, Virginia Silverstone. Doctor Thompson also did his part in welcoming the "best and largest Freshman Class" that ever entered the High School. The Jazz Band started every- thing right, stirring up enthusiasm for the rest of the program. Eugenia Clinchard scored a hit with her "harem" Cas announced by the coon, alias Thelma Burgh, as did Marjorie Rogers with her dance. Next came a recitation by Marilla Brintnall, followed by a scene from an old-fashioned school room, in which "poor teacher" was very much to be pitied. The program was concluded by an original number. A traveler visiting in different countries heard "Home Sweet Home" played in the version of each particular nation. The remainder of the afternoon was spent in dancing. SPRING December '20 welcomed the girls of December '23 at the Freshman reception, Fri- day afternoon, February 20th. As each girl entered the auditorium she was pre- sented with a George Washington hat, and a dance program by Martha CD. Kingl and George Washington CM. Munnj. Miss Beach, and the President of the Girls' Association, D. Tabor, welcomed the girls to the Alameda High School, and F. Wheeler, Vice-President of the Freshman Class, responded in behalf of the guests. The first number on the program was "Mistress Washingt0n's Tea." Several of her guests entertained with special numbers. The entertainers were: Theo. Larsen, song, Juliet Weinstock, Russian skating dance, Bernice Borchert, songs. This play- let was concluded by the entire company dancing the minuet. Next came a piano solo by Miss Sorenson, and this was enjoyed by all. Al Brooks, who is refusing several offers from the Metropolitan Opera Company, yodcled afew of the popular songs. The hit of the afternoon was the presentation of the skit, "Tin Can Alley." The characters performed to perfection. The cast was as follows: A. Weurz, M. Lin- derman, M. Graves, L. Safford and E. Pennock. The last act was the pantomime, selected and produced by the French Club. The costumes were of the early Mediaeval French period. The characters were cleverly portrayed by A. Pouey, M. Onions, and R. Roy. After the conclusion of the program, punch was served by the High Seniors. The remainder of the afternoon was spent in dancing to the music of the A. H. S. Jazz Orchestra. Probably one of the largest crowds that has ever attended a Frosh Re- ception was present. It was a true welcome to the new students. QE b g H g g g fl Page Fifty-nine 1 OR the first time in many years military has not been included within the list of subjects offered at the Alameda High School. The cadets were under the supervision of the State, and the State was unable to furnish them with modern equipment. Antique rifles and bayonets were furnished, with cart- ridge belts for a different rifle. The cadets were forced to buy their own uniforms. Of course the uniforms were not the same. Military Because of these and other reasons, interest in the cadet corps waned. This term Dr. Thompson thought it best to temporarily drop military until proper equipment and instructors could be procured. G. H., June '20. Junior Prom The Class of June 21 gave a very successful Prom at Porter School on May 7th. Many students attended the dance that night, and the auditorium was filled. Music was furnished by M. Brown's College orchestra, formerly of the Hotel Oakland. Two small girls, dressed in costumes corresponding to the decorations, served the punch. The success of the Prom, financially and socially, is due to the efforts of David Arneson, Manager, Paul Rosen, Assistant Manager, and the well chosen committees who put their time into the work. Everyone had a wonderful time, and it is hoped that later dances by the class will be as successful as this one was. R. F., June '21, Bean Feeds In 1910 the Bean Feeds at the Y. M. C. A. were originated. These were for the Oakland schools only, but in 1913, owing to the fact that we did not have a "Y" in Alameda, it was decided to let the fellows from our school participate in the "feasts." Quite a few fellows have been coming regularly to the "feeds," and we expect to keep up the old Alameda "pep" by bringing new members each time. Everyone who has been there will eagerly uphold the statement that the delicious beans, slaw, buns, cakes, and chocolate are alone enough to make any fellow come. After the "eats" the students from each school adjourn to their respective rooms, where they meet and discuss problems which every high school fellow faces. The Alameda group is under the supervision of Mr. Brown, who gives very interesting and practical talks. ' A. I-L S. Bank More outside recognition for the A. H. S. This time the bank comes in for its share. Since February, 1918, the Alameda High School Bank has been handling all Thrift Stamp purchases, bith in the High School and in the Grammar Schools, and has been doing it so well that government attention has been drawn as a result. K. E. W., June '20. The big thing, however, to those connected with the banking system is the fact that the methods used here are, o-n the recommendation of a Federal official, to be introduced into other high schools of the State. The total cash sales of Thrift Stamps and War Savings Stamps to the Alameda Schools since January, 1919, to April, 1920, have amounted to 895,252.71 E. T., Dec. '20.

History of the Acorn EAARS AGO, when the "Acorn" started, in 1899, it was but a twelve-page paper, composed entirely of stories. There were no illustrations in it, and the advertisements appeared side by side with the reading matter, and even on the cover. This book was more like the "Oak Leaf" of today, containing similar material, but being twice as large. The first editor and manager were respectively, Gus VVhite and Gerald Anthony. In 1900 the "Acorn" was put out two or three times a term, and took the place of the present "Oak Leaf." This custom lasted until 1911 when it became a semi- annual, edited by the Senior Class instead of by the school. Henry Allen and Frank Pollard were editor and manager, respectively. From that time on, the "Acorn" has remained practically the same except for a few minor changes. The December 1915 issue, known as the Vocational Number, was edited by the Journalism Class, and was the first number to appear without advertisements. It was a very creditable thing for a class to be able to publish and finance such an edition. The June 1916 "Acorn" also appeared without advertisements. In 1917 the f'Acorn" became an annual, on account of increasedicost of produc- tion, due to the war. It has since remained so. M. S., Dec. '20.

Oak Leaf HIE "Oak Leaf" of this semester has shown a tremendous gain over the former terms, in that the size of the paper and the establishment of a lixed date for its publication are decided advantages over preceding issues. The plac- ing of a headline at the top of the first page has set a precedent l'or the journal, as it is the lirst one of its kind in the history of the paper. Each item ot' school interest is recorded in the journal and given space according to its relative importance to the students. The gathering of such articles is one which requires most minute detail and, after careful editing, yields a few lines ot' intrinsic value to the entire school. This task could be made much easier it' the students regarded the paper as one in which the voice of the school is recorded and make it their own personal duty to impart information to the representatives of the publication. It is sincerely hoped by the present management, that in years to come, the school will demand that the paper be kept at its present size. As the oflicial representative of the Alameda lligh School, the paper has established a large number of exchanges with schools publishing papers similar to the "Oak Leaf." A standard form should be maintained from year to year, thus typifying the stability and permaneney ot' the school. With sullicient financial support from the student body, the "Oak I.eai"' would not have to rely so much on the support ot' the advertisers, and could be pub- lished weekly. lt is certainly no hardship to gather news in this school for as small a paper as is published, and many articles that could be published in a weekly are left out of the bi-monthly publication because of the necessity to use the latest news.

A. work in Washington, called the first Rugby turnout. Between 30 and 40 players showed up, and from then on every afternoon except Tuesday was spent in practicing. Most of the 1918 State Championship team was still in school, and the out- look for another championship team was very bright. With "Heinie" Fischer, "Doc" Eberly, Johnny Uphoff, "Senator" Dunbar, Frank Pennock, Cliff Traphagen, "Squirt,' Baum, "Cows" Smith, and "Goo" McKean as veterans, and "Les" Smith and "Heinie" McNutt, stars of' the 1917 team, back at school, Otto Rittler was out to again "bring home the bacon" to Alameda. . ' ALAMEDA 8-LICK 5 After about three weeks of hard practice Alameda met Lick-Wilmerding at Lincoln Park. In 1918 Lick won the San Francisco championship, and as many of its veterans were still on the team, they were able to give Alameda a good battle. In the first half "Les" Smith carried the ball over for Alamedais first try. Lick soon came back and scored on her own account, converting the touchdown. In the second half, after a pretty passing rush by C. Smith, McKean and Gabbs, Gabbs managed to swerve through the Lick players for the second try, which "Les" Smith converted, making the final score 8 to 5. The game was a fine battle from start to finish, and it looked as though Alameda was off for a repetition of the previous season. Paye Sefventy-.fix Q D Q Q f U I 11 ALAMEDA VS. LOWELL The next game of the season was with Lowell High on the 25th of September. Like the Lick game it was a battle from beginning to end. Alameda' played like "champs" throughout the game. Alameda scored the first try which was easily con- verted. In the beginning of the second half, Lowell came back and scored, but failed to convert, leaving the score 5 to 3 in favor of Alameda. In the last minutes of play, while Alameda was battling on the defense 10 yards from its goal, the referee blew the whistle. Alameda stopped playing the ball, and waited for the referee, but Lowell did not pay any attention to the whistle and carried the ball over without any interference. The referee claimed he did not blow the whistle and said that Lowell's touchdown was good. After much argument pro and con, Alameda finally accepted the referee's decision. Although this last try of Lowell's was not converted, it brought the score up to 6 to 5 in favor of Lowell, thereby giving them the game. ' ALAMEDA 14-MODESTO 0 On October 4th the team traveled to Modesto, and though the lineup was some- what changed by the addition of two or three substitutes, Alameda managed to come out on the long end of a 14 to 0 score. "Red" Gabbs went over for the first try in the early part of the game. In the second half the Smith combination did all the scoring, "Gopher" going over twice and "Cows" once. J.

For the last two or three years there has been a growing sentiment among the students in favor of the American game. As all the colleges on the Pacific Coast had made American the major sport in football, one by one the High Schools had also turned from Rugby to American. This year, Manager Traphagen found that it was almost impossible to get Rugby games scheduled, be- cause, although the Oakland schools were still playing Rugby, they had formed a league of their own, making it necessary for Alameda to 'go elsewhere for its games. After the Modesto game on October 4th, because there were no more games in sight for the team, Coach Rittler decided to turn to American. The C. I. F. had already "noised it around" that in the 1920 football season all of the High Schsools under their jurisdiction were to play American, so Rittler decided to get a good start for 1920 by teaching the game to the fellows at this time. Although some of the football players still wanted to play Rugby, they saw the wisdom of Otto's move, and nearly all turned out to learn the new game. Every afternoon about twenty-six men were out at Lincoln Park learning the plays and signals. At this time Alameda faced somewhat of a problem in the outfitting of the team with American "un-ies," as one new set of Rugby uniforms had been purchased at the beginning of the season, and the school was financially unable to outfit another team right at this time. How- ever, this condition was overcome by the proceeds from the sale of tags on "Tag Day," and the money made on "Sirkus Day," and new "unies" were ordered. The team lined up as follows: R. E., J. Eaglesg R. T., D. Newmeyerg R. G., H. Fischer, C., K. Dunbar, L. G., Eber- lyg L. T., C. Tarletong L. E., J. McKean, Q. B., L. Smith, R. H., R. Knowlandg L. H., M. Gabbsg F. B., F. Pennock, Subs, Spence and Arneson. ALAMEDA 20-ST. MARY'S 7 On November 21st Alameda played its first game of American since 1911. The team had only gone through about three weeks of practice, and although most of the players were new at the American game the team looked as if it had been going all season. Much credit' is due Otto Rittler for teaching the players the rudiments of the game in such a short time. The team was kept in perfect running order by Quarterback L. Smith. Under his leadership the team met and defeated the St. Mary's High School team on November 21st at Lincoln Park by a score of 20 to 0. In the first quarter Frank Pennock, after a pretty run, scored Alameda's first touchdown. Les Smith converted. Alameda took the offensive again, and after a series of line plunges, and occasional forward passes, Les Smith went over for the second touchdown. Smith again converted. V St. Mary's then tried by line plunges to break through Alameda's line, but the stonewall defense of Fischer, Eberly, Newmeyer and Dunbar stopped them almost every time. The next touchdown was the result of a pretty play by Alameda. Smifth called for an end-over-end play, which was executed so perfectly that St. Mary's did not realize what had happened until they saw "Dave" Arneson crossing their line with the ball. Page Seventy-eight G b 2 5 f 0 t 11 In the second half, St. Mary's tried to pull the game out of the ice by putting var- sity material in their lineup, but the best they could do was to score one touchdown. Joe Eagles, "Goo" McKean and "Russ" Knowland broke up many plays and would- he forward passes that St. Mary's attempted. Pennock and Gabbs in the backfield gained the most ground for Alameda by their end runs and line bucks. ALAMEDA 13-OAKLAND 0 On Thanksgiving morning Alameda and Oakland High met at Lincoln Park in the real "big game" of the season. Oakland had done the same as Alameda, first playing Rugby and then changing to American. A large crowd was on hand to see Alameda make its "official" comeback in American, and they were not disappointed with what they saw. With "Red' Smith acting as referee, the kick-off took place about 11:00 a. m. Throughout the whole game Alameda's territory was only entered two or three times, and although Alameda only scored two touchdowns she was ever threatening 0akland's goal. Up until the 4th quarter there was no scoring done. Then Alameda began to get busy, and the backfleld, using line bucks, mixed once in a while by end runs, carried the ball to 0akland's 3 yard line. On the fourth down, with 3 yards to go, Gabbs buckcd his way over the line for the first touchdown. Smith converted, making the score 7 to 0. The next touchdown came as a result of the prettiest play of the day. Joe Eagles, right end, intercepted an attempted forward pass by Oakland and raced sixty yards to a touchdown. Fischer, Newmeyer and Dunbar played a great game by keeping Oakland's line from breaking through. Eberly at left guard and Tarleton and Spence alternating at left tackle, did some tine playing. The line bucking of Pennock and Knowland, combined with the end runs of Gabbs, were a big factor in Alameda's win. Eagles at right end played his usual clever game, and broke up many forward passes. At left end, McKean and Arneson split the work, each playing very good football. Les Smith showed he has the "football head" whether playing Rugby or American, and used it to good advantage while issuing his orders from quarterback. Throughout the game the team worked in perfect unison, and with five or six of its men left for next year's team, Alameda should turn out a winning combination. J. McK, June '20. . , 1.1. lsim ri.

"Chile" Noyes was elected Captain, and Bobby Laughlin, Manager. Immediately upon his appointment as Manager, Laugh- lin wrote for games, and succeeded in securing for Alameda the finest schedule this school has ever had. Inter-advisory games were played, and after many good battles Daniel's team managed to come out the winner. When the first official turnout was called, over seventy fellows signed up to try for a place on the team. From these, the squad was cut down into a first and second team. The first practice game was with St. Mary's 130-lb. team. The game was played at Lincoln Park and resulted in a 14 to 2 win for A. H. S. ,g The team next traveled to Berkeley, where they managed to defeat the Deaf and Dumb school by the score of 6 to 1. Alameda then encountered its first real hard game when it met the Lincoln All- Stars at Lincoln Park. After an 11-inning battle Alameda lost by the score of 1 to 0. Ray Smith occupied the mound for Alameda and pitched a fine brand of ball. Lick-Wilmerding was our next competitor, and after a close, hard fought game, the team managed to nose them out by a 2 to 1 score. Al Steele pitched wonderful ball for Alameda, allowing only one scratch hit. The Polytechnic Business College was the next victim. At Bay View Park in Oakland we handed them a 9 to 7 defeat. On March 22nd, Alameda met Lowell at Lincoln Park, and once more came through with a win. Al Steele again showed his pitching ability by allowing only one hit. On the 24th of March the team took Fremont into camp by a score of 7 to 2. In this game the team showed its only fault, namely, poor base running. When it comes to hitting or fielding the team is right there, but either through overconfidence or lack of head work, is usually poor on the bases. In San Francisco the team crossed bats with the fast Mission High team. After 11 innings of close playing ahome run by Meuter put the game on ice for Alameda, the final score being 2 to 1. On the 31st of March, our old rival, Tech, took the team into camp by the score of 7 to 5. Alameda threw away a couple of good chances to score by its bad base- running. Smith started the game, but was unable to hold the hard hitting Tech bunch, and was replaced by Steele. The following Saturday San Jose was our guest. Owing to the vacation some of the players took the San Joseans home for lunch, instead of the get together meal that usually takes place when Alameda and San Jose meet. In a somewhat loosely played game, Alameda won by a score of 6 to 1. Smith and Meuter formed the bat- tery for Alameda. University High came to Alameda on April 7th, and was handed an 8 to 3 beating. Smith twirled for Alameda and pitched his usual steady game. "Mudhen" Meuter hit the ball to deep left for what should have been a home run, but the "Mudhen" only managed to "web-foot" it to second. Alameda next hooked up with St. Mary's Varsity in what proved to be one of the hardest fought games of the season. Ludolph, pitching for St. Mary's, held the Alameda bunch without a score, while an error and two walks allowed his team mates to put over one tally in the fifth, which was enough to win the game. Steele and Meuter formed the batteries for Alameda, with Ludolph and Quig for St. Mary's. Page Eighty-tfwo K b g 5 g g t U In a one-sided game Alameda defeated Oakland High at Lincoln Park on April 19th. Alameda hit three Oakland pitchers for a total of seven runs, while Steele held the young Oaks to one lone tally. The batteries for Alameda were Steele and ' Meuter. ALAMEDA 6-BERKELEY 5 Alameda took the opening game of the A. C. A. L. by defeating Berkeley 6 to 5 at California Field on April 30th. Berkeley took the offensive by scoring two runs in the second. Alameda came back in the third and scored one, and tied the score in the fourth when Arneson stole home. A single by Menzies, an infield out, and a single by Meuter gave Alameda one in the fifth, while Paul scored on Menies' single for the fourth run in the sixth. A double, and a home run into the- right field bleachers enabled Berkeley to tie the score in the seventh. In the beginning of the tenth two singles and a sacrifice bunt gave Berkeley one run, and the game looked lost for Alameda. However in Alameda's half of the tenth, with Steele and Arneson resting on second and third, Saloman broke up the game with a hit over second. "Hookem" Smith, pitching for Alameda, was in rare form, striking out thirteen and walking only two. Alameda gave him good support, playing errorless ball through- out the whole game. G. Dickson for Berkeley was the hitting star, knocking out a single, a double and a triple in four times at bat.

ALAMEDA 5-HAYWARD 3 By defeating Hayward High 5 to 3 at San Leandro, on May 3rd, Alameda an- nexed the A. C. A. L. baseball championship for 1920. K. Salomon furnished the feature of the game when he knocked the ball over the left field fence with the bases loaded. Alameda took the offensive in the second, when a hit, a sacrifice, and an error gave her two runs. In the third Hayward got busy and tied the score, and in the fifth chalked up one mpre run, making the score 3 to 2 in its favor. In the sixth inning with two down, Arneson reached first on a single, and Meuter and Steele walked, filling the bags. It was then that Salomon came through with his drive over the fence, scoring Arneson, Meuter, and Steele. From then on Alameda played air- tight ball, only one Hayward man reaching first during the remainder of the game.

As has always been the case in Alameda High, the team had no gymnasium to practice in. Despite this handicap they managed to give a good account of themselves every time they played. The only veteran left was McKean, and the team had to be picked from raw material. After a few weeks of practice the team played St. Mary's 2nd varsity, and defeated them, which was very good, considering it was Alameda's first game. A few week's later the team traveled to Richmond, where it was defeated. Owing to the good sportsmanship shown by both teams and the good brand of playing that took place, Richmond asked for another game. Once more the team traveled to Richmond, only to be handed another close defeat. Richmond held a dance after the game in honor of its visitors, and this was well enjoyed by all who attended. Alameda played one more game before closing the season. She met Vocational High in Oakland and after a hard fought and exciting game managed to nose them out by one point. The players were: Capt. Joe Eagles, E. MacKenzie and J. McKean, forwards, D. Arneson, center, G. Carter, A. Lowe and H. Fischer, guards. Alameda High School 17-St. Mary's 2nd Varsity 12 Alameda High School 24-Vocational High 23 Alameda High School 20-Richmond High 35 Alameda High School 16-Richmond High 25 Tennis ENNIS has not received much attention at Alameda High for the last few seasons, but this year a "revival" was attempted. Inter-advisory tourna- ments were first held, Coughlan's advisory winning. A team was then made up with Gordon Heid and George Smith on the lst squad, and Jerry Dabo- vich and "Heinie" Fischer on the 2nd squad. The team met Fremont in a tournament, but only managed to win one match out of four. However, the team is rounding into shape, and expects to put up a good fight in the A. C. A. L. Swimming WIMMING prospects for this year look very good. There is probably better material in school now for a winning team than we have had for a long time. Of the veterans C. Tarleton, T. Halton, and D. Elfers remain. Of the new prospects Heid and Chamberlain look good in the sprints, and Winslow in the diving. On April 27th the team competes against Berkeley at Neptune Beach in the A. C. A. I.. During the remainder of the season there will be numerous dual meets, in- cluding one with the Y. M. C. A., and one with the Oakland Athletic Club. Alameda is to be represented on May lst at Sutro Baths in different swimming events, which will take place before the National Water Polo Finals. G b g Q f U I n Page Eighty-fifue Q Track HIS year, track, as a major sport, has come into its own. For the last six or seven years Alameda has had two or three boys who were interested in track, and who tried to uphold Alameda in the track meets, but on account of their number, were unable to bring Alameda to the front in this sport. This season Alameda has eight or ten men who are capable of winning points in almost any high school meet. So far, the team has been in three meets, making a very good showing in each. On March 27th the team lost to Berkeley in a dual meet, 98 to 57. Considering that Berkeley has always been active in track and that they have the use of the track at U. C., Alameda made a very good showing. Philpott, Hamm, and Tarleton were the greatest point winners for Alameda, Philpott winning three first places and Hamm two. Alameda traveled to Fremont on April 7th, and managed to hand them a beating hy the score of 7415 to 36M. The team traveled to Stanford on April 10th for the North Coast Section, C. I. F. Philpott, Hamm and Tarleton were point 'winners. Between them, they made.14 points. 'h g The team also made the trip to Hollister, meeting Hollister High in a dualmeet there. The team this year is composed of the. following men: Philpott, Captain, Hamm, Spence, Tarleton, Quigley, Nagai, McKean, Barron, Lack, Hanger, Federspiel, Grey, Carter, Steele, Acto, Egan and Kirkwood. Tribune Marathon For the fourth consecutive time, the athletes of Alameda High captured the cup given by the Oakland Tribune for the club or school having the most men finish within the hour in the Tribune Merritt Marathon. This race is held on Admission Day of each year, and the course is twice around Lake Merritt. Although Alameda had but fifteen men to start, all of them finished in the required time. To John Elliot, a sophomore, fell the honor of being Alameda's first runner to cross the line. He also captured a silver medal given to the second High School athlete to finish. A I Girls' Athletics The girls of Alameda High School are showing more and more interest in their Physical Education work. The conditions under which the work is given are poor, but after getting accustomed to the hardships of no gymnasium, Miss Grinnell has made the work very interesting and pleasant. Under her excellent direction we spend two days of the week on regular gymnasium work-calistenics and march- ing. Two days are spent on out-of-doors games, when the weather permits. Last semester the main sport was basketball, while this term we are playing baseball. Under the supervisionof the Sports and Pastimes Committee of the Girls' Asso- ciation, CElaine Wallin, Chairmanj after-school baseball and tennis teams have been organized. The teams will play practice games, and probably interclass games. It is hoped that there will be some very interesting contests between the different teams. The one big need of the girls is a gymnasium. Until we have this, however, we must be satisfied with Porter School as a meeting place. In the meantime, let us all put forth our very best efforts to prove that if we did have a gymnasium, wee would do work that would be worthy of it. R. M., June '20.
