The feature of our first term was the Freshman-Sophomore tie-up, which we won. During this term our officers were Elridge Hanger, president, Viola Leonard, vice-president, and Fred Leonard, secretary. In our High Freshman term we elected the following oflicers: Milton Gabbs, president, Dorothy Pollard, vice-president, Hamlin Ashley, secre- tary, Clarke Chamberlain and Alvera T hien, Ad. Board, and Dorothy Brown, editor. The administration was most successful. We made our Low Sophomore term hard on all the scrubs with our enforced "Scrub Rules." Hamlin Ashley, president, Estelle Jochumsen, vice-president, Rich- ard Heinz, secretary, Dorothy Pollard and Lester Brown, class representa- tives, and Clarke Chamberlain, editor, made up the officers for our High Sophomore term. The oiiicers during the next term were Harry Akesson, president, Dorothy Whalley, vice-president, Hamlin Ashley, secretary, Ruth Buckley and Clark Chamberlain, class representatives, and Allen Walker, editor. As Low juniors we chose our class pins to celebrate our becoming upper classmen. Fred Leonard became president, Helen Young, vice-president, Harry Akesson, secretary, Clark Chamberlain and Ruth Buckley, class representa- tives, and Dorothy Anderson, editor. The feature of our High Junior term was, of course, the Prom, one of the best attended and best decorated of all Proms. Clark Chamberlain was made president, Ruth Buckley, vice-president, Hamlin Ashley, secretary, Richard Heinz and Alvera Thien, class repre- sentatives, and Dorothy Anderson, editor. During our Low Senior term we staged the most successful Senior play ever produced. Jack Lum was president, Ruth Buckley, vice-president, Richard Heinz, secretary, and class representatives, Richard Heinz and Vera Von Tagen. During the High Senior term the class staged the best attended Senior- pheum in history, its members largely made up the ACORN staff, and it is looking forward to a distinctive and delightful Senior ball and graduation. Officers: Allen VValker, president, Elizabeth Vaughan, vice-president, Hamlin Ashley, secretary, Clark Chamberlain and Vera Von Tagen, class representatives, and Richard Heinz and Dorothy Anderson, editors. w e N Y' E 'iv Class of December'22 T was with some fear, we must admit, that we, the class of December, ,22, first entered Alameda High School in February, 1919. VVe soon became organized and elected the following officers: President, Will Brooks, vice-president, Grace Faulkner, secretary, Eugenia Clinchard, class representative, Annabelle Gardner, and Dexter Weeden, editor. During our first term the Freshman-Sophomore tie-up was won with the help of the High Freshmen by the score of 3 to 2. As High Freshmen we elected Stewart Hieronymus, president, Anna-- belle Gardner, vice-president, Kenneth Speer, secretary, Dorothy Blake and Worden Cornelius, class representatives, and Eugene Jackson, editor. Our class put a football team on the field in the fall of 1919 which won from the Sophomores, but was unable to repeat the performance. In the spring of 1920 the then Low Sophomore class elected the follow- ing oliicers: Stewart Hieronymus, president, Betty Allen, vice-president, Norman Ackley, secretary, Dorothy Blake and Francis Chamberlain, class representatives, and Courtney de Colmesnil, editor. In the fall Dexter Weeden was made president, Grace Faulkner, vice-president, Eugene Jackson, secretary, with Dorothy Blake and Francis Chamberlain on the Ad. Board. The main event of our High Soph term was the movie H232 Hours' Leave." This was one of the best attended movies ever given at the A. H. S., netting over SIOO. As Low Juniors, Kenneth Speer was president, Vera Von Tagen, vice- president, Francis Chamberlain, secretary, while Grace Faulkner and Dexter VVeeden were class representatives. ln the fall of 192 1 Stewart Hieronymus was again made president, with Betty Allen, vice-president, and Norman Ackley, secretary. Class repre- sentatives were Alvin Sargent and Grace Faulkner. In this term our Junior Prom was given and it was certainly a success in every way. It was managed by Stewart Hieronymus. When we became Seniors we were given our own advisory, with Mrs. Partch and Mr. Daniels as advisors. We elected the following ollicers: President, Harry Akesson, vice-president, Eugenia Clinchard, secretary, Eugene Jackson, treasurer, Norman Ackley, class representatives, Al Steele and Dorothy Donaldson, and editor, Andrew Dixon. The crowning success of our Low Senior term was the play, "Clarence" An excellent cast was chosen and coached by Mr. Carlyle. We will soon enter upon the last term of' school. We intend to make our last term a grand success by giving an unsurpassable Seniorpheum. Here's hoping that Alameda High School will always think as fondly of the class of December, 322, as we shall think of Alameda. III I NIMH 'III 'II III III!

The cast had Worked earnestly for Weeks to make the production a success and as a result of its untiring efforts the play was put on in a most creditable manner. A large banner upon which was printed "All-of-a-Sudden Peggy" was prepared as a unique publicity feature. ' This was exhibited in the yard while the students were returning from a student meeting at Porter School. The financial success was due primarily to the scheme of advertising that was most carefully planned. The cast was carefully chosen by Mr. Carlyle, the coach, to meet the exacting requirements of the various character roles. DRAMATIS PERSONAE.

"Clarence" S the years roll along and Senior plays come and go, instead of losing favor as might be expected from their frequent production, they become more and more popular, as evidenced in the recent produc- tion of "Clarence" The play was presented on April 29 at Porter Auditorium before an enthusiastic and appreciative audience. A delightful comedy, well done. "Clarence" himself, the one and only, was played by Adrien Hynes. He literally threw himself into the part, and if Booth Tarkington had been in the audience, and we're not sure that he wasn't, we would have found him fearful lest his hero die before the second act, so well did he take his part. Eugenia Clinchard took the part of "Cora," the leading lady. Her superb interpretation of her part placed the play far above others of its kind. To say that she did well does not express it. The part of Bobby Wheeler was taken by Harry Akesson, who appeared to good advantage in this important part. A great deal depends upon the way in which the role of Violet Pinney is played. Dorothy Blake more than did the part justice. Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler, who are known to us as Eugene Jackson and Mabel Evans, convinced us that being heads of a modern family is not in our line. Gilbert Christian played up to his part as Hubert Stem in a most realistic fashion. Lucille Di Vecchio made an admirable private secretary, and Carleton Wichman and Olive Poole gave us an idea of "domestic life." This production marks an innovation in Alameda High School, and its success presages others of the same type of American plays. There were four acts to the production, three of which took place in the drawing room of Mr. Wheeler's house, while the remaining one took place in VVheeler's ofiice. Every one connected with the play did invaluable work. Of course no one mentions Mr. Carlyle, the coach, any more. He is almost as one of us around the school now. Seems to be here half the time and he knows the majority of pupils. However, one can't help but say what excellent coaching he did. Mrs. Partch and Mr. Daniels were indispensable. Their good judg- ment and advice and unfailing work more than helped to make the play the success it was. ' Albert Steele was invaluable as manager, as was his assistant, Francis Chamberlain. Eugene Jackson, besides being in the cast, managed the tickets. Although this is quite a job, Jackson got along without a hitch. Last, but not least, we have our stage manager and head usher, John Upphoif and Norman Ackley, respectively, whose work was most efficient. n rlxlau 't ofu .4:P' F,,,,,,...,..-m.,...,M. ig F 3 is if E 2 fi fzrliff. the for 50, it ffmff preffy bm! lf fha frzzfb. zz!

Eight big acts comprised the program, which was interspersed with much harmony-vocal, instrumental and otherwise. The orchestra played several numbers which were followed immediately by the Hrst act, in which the Medart-Fraser pair furnished the audience with an excellent display of dancing. This was followed by the "Florist Shop," a play produced under the direction of Miss Calloway of the Drama Department. Rittler's human statues dazzled the audience with their reality. Following the statues came Borchert's Follies. Two professional dancers, Dolores Spence and Georgia Joseph, presented some classic dancing that was worth going a long way to see. Julia Neltinge, the wonder girl, followed next. Ed Rich and Jerry Goodwin then presented a snappy act. The concluding number was a musical comedy presented by the High Seniors with a jazzy chorus of co-eds, with Francis Chamberlain and Estelle Jochumsen taking the leading parts. Hamlin Ashley and Alvera Thein represented a lively college boy and co-ed, respectively. Fred Greenlee and Mildred Smith played important faculty roles. Marsden Seabrook and Clark Chamberlain took the part of crooks to perfection. Vodivil of Fall ,2I HE vaudeville presented by the class of December, ,2I, made a decided hit, due to the excellent management of Kenneth Biggart and the extraordinary amount of talent in the class. Glissman's Musical Five opened the program with several snappy jazz selections. The Star and Key won the audience over with their comic shadow pantomime entitled "Shadows" or "The Tale of a Fickle Lover." The leading parts were taken by Ralph Vollmar and Dorothy Blake. "Gene" Clinchard in her song and dance number entitled the G19 50 Girl" provided the audience with twenty delightful minutes. Four short dancing acts were directed by Juliet Weinstock, in which a bevy of pretty girls presented an Oriental dance, a Spanish dance, an old-fashioned dance and a modern American dance. The costumes were exquisite. Several entertaining numbers by Kenneth Biggart and Alice Burton, Bert Van Cleve and Frank Castro in "Oysters for Two", and the good old "Floradora" by the High Senior boys and girls met with approval. A novel "Spring Dance" executed by "Louie" Mathewson, "Red" Neville and Waldo Melbin brought down the house by its gracefulness and proved a fitting close to this delightful evening. Freshman Reception, Fall 721 AINTY bonnets witlya welcoming verse announced to the girls of June, '25, that those of June, ,22, would hold a reception in their honor on Wednesday, September 14, 1921, at Porter Auditorium. Estelle Jochumsen entertained the girls by singing "Ma" and "Tying Apples on a Lilac Tree." She was repeatedly encored. A novel college skit followed in which Elizabeth Vaughan, Audrey Martine, Viola Leonard, Grace Faulkner, Virginia Silverstone and Annabelle Gardner sang popular songs. "Absolute Tommyrotn was well received when Elizabeth Toy entertained with a few comic recitations. Dorothy F. H. A. with her Scotch dog, "jock," ran through an act of Scotch dancing and singing under the name of "Jock and Co. from Scotland." Phyllis Borchert then led a chorus of ten Senior girls in a jazzy dancing number. This "Senior Follies Act" was the feature of the program. The girls were Alvera Thein, Grace Faulkner, Lillian Pfeilfer, Viola Leonard, Billie Vaughan, Vera Von Tagen and Bernice Hamlin. The scene of this last act was in a cafe. Dorothy Donaldson and Edna Walker were maids, and Louise Gutte played the part of the waiter. After the program the girls danced. De Lancey's orchestra furnished the music. The affair was managed by Ruth Buckley. Freshman Reception, Spring ,22 HE class of December, ,22 welcomed those of the class of Decem- ber, '2 5, to Alameda High at a Freshman Reception given at Porter Auditorium on the afternoon of February 24, 1922. The "Hickville Follies" was a comedy skit with dancing, singing and accordion selections which delighted the audience. Olive Poole gave several delightful readings in dialect, the last of which was a most appropriate piece concerning a Freshman and a peach pie. The third number on the program was an Italian monologue given by Eugenia Clinchard, who was costumed most effectively. As the reception was given very near George Washington's birthday, a cute colonial skit was next. Senior girls dressed in very becoming colonial costumes posed inside a large picture frame for "The Family Album." A minuet, led by Ruth Bartels and Dagmar Sorensen as George VVashington and Martha Washington, followed. Last on the program were the "Follies of I9'2.2,,, a snappy musical number led by Eugenia Clinchard. The girls were Ellen Medcraft, Betty Allen, jean McCaw, Helen Fortmann, Grace Faulkner, and Hertha Bayne. De Lancey's jazz band played for the dance, punch was served, and all the Seniors did their best to give the Freshmen a good time. .V :xn- l 'w.+f.4', 4 r- 4 IPM, xx N N5 Q NB NS 'Q 2' '3 Q.

Hunter, musical director. Mr. W. I. Stratton rendered valuable assistanceaas orchestra director. The management of the production was under the direction of Allen Walker. Hamilton Anderson conducted what was declared to be the most extensive advertising campaign ever used by the students of the High School. Ticket Manager Clifford johnson, Stage Manager Richard Heinz and Chief Electrician Clark Chamberlain all gave service that was indis- pensable. The scenery was made in the high school shops, under the guidance of Mr. R. F. Phelps, and was beautiful and elaborate in every detail. The production itself was well worth seeing. The cast was exception- ally well chosen, several outstanding stars being featured. The chorus was carefully selected and consisted of thirteen boys and forty-two girls. The orchestra accompanied the opera throughout and the quality of the music showed long and faithful practice. The "Mikado" is a comic opera in two acts, written by William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan, two Englishmen. It was produced in London in 188 5, and in the United States the latter part of the same year. The play has been extremely popular ever since. As the name indicates, the opera supposedly takes place in Japan at the present time. Philip Pyke and Lyman Lamb alternated in the roles of the Mikado, and did equally well. Nanki-Poo, disguised son of the Mikado and lover of Yum-Yum, one of the Mikado's wards, was cleverly played by Albert Brooks, whose ren- dition of "The Wandering Minstrel" was superb. Lord High Executioner Ko-Ko was characterized by Albert Onions who, though inexperienced, gave a good account of himself. Pooh-Bah, Lord High Everything Else, was played exceptionally well by Julian Dickie, displaying both character and finesse. The Mikado's three wards, Yum-Yum, Pitti-Sing and Peep-Bo, were played by Margaret Randall, Estelle Jochumsen and Marian Mitchell, respectively. All of these girls have had experience, and gave a won- derful characterization of their parts. The part of Katisha was taken by Lella VVebb, who probably had the hardest role in the opera, but she proved herself equal to the situation. Pish-Tush was played alternately by Will Low and Fred Braue, and both gave the audience much enj oyment.

We cannot hope to make it stand forth from the others hy virtue of its position, hut we have hent our best efforts to the end that you may have what you want: an ACORN flied with interest to every student in the school, fair and unbiased in its opinions and representative of the best that we have at our command. We hope that we have succeeded in our aims so far as to see our work stand, in your judgment, as a worthy mark for future ACORNS. The Acorn ACH year, after the ACORN comes out, there is a good deal of smoke about a "better ACORN,,, because usually the student considers that he or she is sold if a leather bound volume the size of an encyclopedia is not forthcoming at the magic ring of a dollar. The fact remains that the school cannot support a larger ACORN, nor a more expensive one, unless some way is devised of giving every student an ACORN after he has paid increased student dues. A larger ACORN is impractical, so We must stick to the present size and get better quality. However, this is expensive. There is always a certain amount of material that must go into an ACORN, and so, with limited finance, the job usually consists of putting forth the old line in a new way. This year we have tried to do not only that, but to add new departments, refine- ments and features not usually seen in an ACORN. We do this, first, because we Obtained more money, secondly, because we have collected a staff of specialists who kiaow and understand the needs of the ACORN. I , Blevin Neville edited the copy and supplied much of the best in the book. Lewis Mathewson managed the ACORN oiiice and had charge of all typing. Richard Heinz, Ruth Buckley and Jack Moulthrop wrote up organizations. Drama was in charge of Eugenia Clinchard and Fred Greenlee, and was ably handled. School notes were taken care of by Robert Rutherford, Margaret Dick- inson and Grace Faulkner. Seabrook, Weeden and Belvel wielded a wicked pen when it came to sports. The snappy Senior records were prepared by Francis Chamberlain and Edna VValker. Ernest Kroger and Dorothy Anderson made all of the title pages. The humor and ability of Simpson and Dettmer shows throughout the book. Fred Benson set a record by cartooning all the Seniors in a strictly professional way. Dixon and Stephens took the snaps and Wichman and Allinger mounted them. The good work of Marguerite Hennings is evidenced by the cover. 1v:I,lllg 'f el six -Jury: . Q55 Lf i l ' i l By DR. GEORGE C. STSHOMPSON. HE Alameda High School has reached a point where we are con- fidently looking forward, in the near future, to a new plant which will adequately house our large student body and afford increasing educational facilities for the greater Alameda. The Board of Education and Superintendent of Schools have been giving careful consideration to the needs, not only of the present clay, but to those demands which the rapidly changing conditions will force upon us in the very near future. The new high school will be something which will awaken the pride of every true lover of Alameda, and we will all unite to a man in standing squarely behind whatever plan may be adopted. It is very necessary for us, however, as students and teachers, to keep in mind always that a high school is not merely a collection of the best buildings. The real high school is something intangible. It is the spirit, the vision, the ideal that is truly to be considered. Our business as teachers and students is to build for character, and to contribute our full measure to the community life. There rests upon us all the great responsibility of accepting cheerfully the duties which our group life forces upon us. Science has today absolutely annihilated space and the nations of the world have been brought in such intimate relationship, that we are, whether we like it or not, a united family. The nations across the sea are only a few seconds away from us. Our next door neighbor has become a real part of our life, and we are truly our brother's keeper. The high school that carries out its responsibility to the community in the way of training for education and vocational fitness in the larger sense, must keep as its central aim, just this ideal. We are the builders of the community life, we are the builders of the new civilization which is at our door. Upon us rests the civic responsibility for the group as a whole. The Alameda High School has tried always to keep this vision in mind. Our faculty and student body have worked as a whole toward the building of a better group life and for the holding up and fixing of this ideal. And once again we pledge in full measure our efforts to the future of our glorious City and beloved High School. A Tip From the Cave-Man AN is a peculiar animal, and we, who are High School students, are simply growing into men. Each year our High School grows more complex and confusing, as does the outside world, and each year we grow farther away from the basic facts and ideals with which we are created. We grow into men of the world more rapidly now than we used to. This is simply keeping pace with civilization, and, if not alto- gether desirable in some ways, is very necessary in others. By this we are losing much of that simplicity and directness which vanished years ago from the business world, but which stayed with the schools, and, we hope, will continue to stay. . Our trend is taking us away from the most basic of our institutions- democracy. When our forefathers hunted with rocks and life was to kill or be killed, man enjoyed the most perfect democracy to which he, as a man, can ever belong. That is, the man who best combined brain and brawn was the leader. Even this democracy was not perfect, because we are not created absolutely equal, but it was as near to it as could be. Only one factor entered into leadership, and that was Ability. In those days the leader could not be sure that a member of his family was to succeed him as chief. He did not feel that any wealth he had amassed would help him hold his place, nor did he have political beliefs to influence those around him. He knew only that the most able man would get his place, irrespective of family, wealth or creed, and would hold it only if he remained the most able. This was crude, but ideal. Later men ruled because their fathers had ruled before them, or because they had a pile of yellow gold, or because they had a political machine to work their way. Only lately have the schools shown that these false principles were entering student government. Let us return to the older principles which have governed the schools for so long, and under which such huge steps for betterment have been taken. Let us make Ability our watchword and rule out VVealth, and Family and Creed as factors in Leadership.

She's an art student and has already distinguished herself in architecture. She is a good sport, and what's most remarkable, she's going through college with very limited iinancial backing. Think what it would mean to her to marry a man who could give her what shels been most probably dreaming and longing for all along. Besides, she is worth the name of Rellan. Mr. R.-But how do we know whether she loves the boy or is just after his money? I'd better watch closely or some pretty flap- per will be murdering me and marrying my son for the fortune. Mrs. R.--But I'n1 positive shels not that kind of a girl. She met Norman when he looked more like a foundling than the son of a rich man.

Why do you suppose he came home? I sup- pose I didn,t give him a chance last night to explain matters-but my nerves are thread- bare. Mrs. R.-He'll explain matters at lunch, I'm sure.

LOUGHLINF N the days when Zeus was supreme in Olympus, and all nations bowed to his will, Pallas Athene, his favorite daughter, held the keys to the wisdom of the world and of heaven. Many times the mortals entreated her to impart her knowledge to them, but she heeded not their supplication. At last, as her wisdom increased, Pallas said one day: "Alas! of what avail is all my knowledge when I alone can use it? What great wonders I could bring about had I but Man with his great strength to help me. But I must search the world over until I find a mortal who will use my knowledge rightlyf' So Pallas Athene descended to earth and began her quest. She visited the palaces and gardens of the rich, the huts and tents of the lowly, the nomads of the deserts, and the sailors of the sea. But always she was disappointed. This one would use his knowledge selhshly, this one would work only for his class, that one would hoard his wisdom, giving good to no one else. At last, weary of her search, she lay down upon the hillside to rest. Looking up at the stars, whom she knew so well in heaven, she reflected how pure and true they were, how faithful to their work of lighting the world at night. If man would only work as truly and with as pure a heart to gain the knowledge she had for him, how well he would use it! Thereupon she formed a plan. Calling all the mortals together she addressed them thus: "Oh! Man, I give you this star of pure and honest work with which you will gain the key to the knowledge you so much covet. May you use it so well that you will gain wisdom, the fruit of all well used knowledge." Thousands of years have passed. The gods of Olympus have been forgotten except when they are studied as queer beliefs of an ancient people. In the land where knowledge is free to all who seek it, and wisdom is needed for government by the people, a group of students in a Western high school 'heard the legend of Athene's ancient charm of the star and key. How well it fitted with the ideals of high scholarship, for which these students were forming an organization! So it was that in IQI2 the Star and Key Society came to be in the Alameda High School. at fda" A and the Oak Leaf appeared l A. S.A. H.S. ' ' HE fall term of 1921 started off with a number of snappy student-body meetings. At the meetings, which were held quite frequently, the students conducted them- selves in an efficient and orderly manner, and showed good spirit in co-operating . with their officers. Many -" interesting speakers were procured. Among these were Mr. Knowland, Judge Weinmann, Tommy Bacon, captain of the 1918 football team, Mr. Mathieson, who spoke on "Safety First," and "Al" Latham, captain of the U. C. varsity. The Alameda High School Jazz Band was always ready to play its part in the way of entertainment. The yelling was better than ever before, due to the excellent leadership of Clark Chamberlain. A dansant committee was appointed by President Bunker and through its efforts several dansants were held at Porter School. These proved very popular, especially with the girls, and, combined with the various class events, kept the social calendar full. The football team made a very creditable showing and the manner in which the students supported their team showed that the old Alameda spirit had not died out. The Ad Board was quite active during this term. They purchased new uniforms of the best quality for the football team. A Boys' Judiciary Board and a Girls' Judiciary Board were elected. Allen Walker was elected editor of the ACORN and Hamlin Ashley manager. Ada Bur- rell was made manager of the Oak Leaf, with Dexter VVeeden, editor. Gilbert Christian, however, later became editor, with Dexter Weeden as his manager. ACORN work started at once, GARLAND BUNK1-:iz without loss of time. CARROLL MELBIN KEiNNETH BIGGART Fall and Spring One of the important events of the term was the game with Taft at Lincoln Park. This game marked the opening of athletic re- lations with Taft High School, which we hope may continue for some time. The standard junior Pin, which had been selected last A . term, was adopted by the GRACE FAULKNER Board and a four-year con- tract with a manufacturer in San Francisco was signed for the school. A one hundred dollar Stadium Bond was purchased by the student body.. This assures for the student body two tickets to each "Big Game" for ten years. These tickets are to be raffled each year, the proceeds to go to the A. S. A. H. S. Only members of the student body may win in the raflle. john Upphoff and Franklin Pennock were awarded "four star 'As' " for completing four years on the football team. N umerals were given to the Senior football team. The Boys' Judiciary Board elected by the Ad Board consisted of Pres- ident Bunker, Franklin Pennock, Allen Walker, Hamlin Ashley, Richard Heinz, Clarke Chamberlain, John Uppholf, Colvin Elliott, Kenneth Biggart, Franz Collischon and Dexter Weeden, The Board met immedi- ately and elected Franklin Pennock president, Colvin Elliott, secretary, and Dexter Weeden, sergeant-at-arms. The oiiicers proved efficient and all work was taken care of promptly. Colvin Elliott was elected president and Kenneth Biggart secretary upon the graduation of ' ' Franklin Pennock. The Girls' Judiciary was composed of Vice-President Vaughan, Helen Faull, Tova Peterson, Beatrice Almond, Helen Cathrall, Viola Leonard, Jessie crow, Alvera Thien, era Von Tagen, Eugenia L X JOHN UPP1-ion 'Q 1 :V I,lX-, ' :EV 'N 54:1 "."n .31 . 4 P' ' JXIUJ Clinchard and Grace Faulk- ner.

The term so far as money and finances were concerned was an unquali- fied success. Our entirely new system of collecting student dues was inaugurated, the tickets being on sale in the advisories when the students arrived to register. In this way much labor, waste and worry was avoided. All the student meetings were held in the Porter Auditorium. This was made necessary by the increase in the number of students, both boys and girls. Every one co-operated with the oflicers and perfect decorum was observed. Yell Leader Harry Akesson proved his ability in keeping up the high standard of rooting made by his predecessors. Track, baseball and swimming called forth a great deal of enthusiasm this term and Alameda made a good showing in these sports. Special atten- tion was given to athletics this term by the administration. Dansants were held at frequent intervals at Porter School, thanks to the efforts of the Administrative Board and the various classes. i l Boys' kll'IDICl.-XRY l5oARo-Svlzlwcz 'lll'fRM. lfunds were voted out for a large and improved Unk Leaf. Two silver medals were given to the Winners of the Decatlilon, the money lieing appropriated by the Administrative Board. Three liundred dollars was voted out for liaselvall and seventy-live dollars for track. A strenuous effort was made to secure larger rooting sections at the liaselnall games. Coach Rittler, the captain of the liaselwall team, and yell leaders appeared before the students at student body meetings and appealed for an increased attendance at all athletic events. liovs' All'lJlL'lARY lloixium-FA1,i, 'IllCRfVl.

Numerals and Block "As" Were distributed at nearly all the student meetings as a reward for athletic prowess. A number of interesting and educational speakers were secured by the administration to address the student body meetings. VVithout a doubt the "Big Administration" Was a step in the right direction on the road of student self government. Guns, -IUDICIARY BoARu-FALL TERM. Girls' Association REAT enthusiasm was shown in the Girls' Association throughout the fall term, with the following girls as officers: Ada Burrell, president, Alta Fulton, vice- president, Helen Faull, correspond- ing secretary and Helen Cathrall, re- cording secretary. A Hallowe'en party at Porter Auditorium, a most successful Freshman reception which netted a goodly sum, and charitable work at Christmas time, were the chief accomplishments of the term. With the election of Elizabeth Vaughan, president, Jean McCaw, vice-president, Alvera Thein, corre- sponding secretary and Audrey Mar- tine, recording secretary, the enthusi- asm and general good feeling mani- fested last term continued in the spring semester, making this year one of the biggest in the history of the Girls' Association. The following were appointed chairmen of various committees: Senior Advisory, Eliza- beth Vaughan, Sports and Pastimes, Kathryn Gregg, Welfare, Ruth Buckley, Social, Marie VVilliams. In sports, especially, the girls showed good spirit by turning out for swimming, tennis and baseball. Many girls received medals and ribbons for the Decathlon events and numerals for baseball. The Freshman recep- tion, the swimming meet and frolic at Cottage baths, held June I, and our participation in the Bay Counties Girls' League conference at Berke- ley all give evidence of the con- structive work accomplished by the Girls' Association. 1 alot 1 . 3' , 1" V ' '-515,-fJ'f7l' 4 F' I fi Q5 tt n -I lm'- ete 3 A " MN '1 1 '4 If rf'- Class ofjune '23 ITH "Al" Williford as president, Ruth Windham, vice-president, and Stanley Kennedy, secretary, the fall adminis- tration of the class of June, '23, was a very successful one. VVith the help of a committee from the Ad Board our class pin was selected. By sign- ing a contract for four years a great economy was effected. The design selected Was a very attractive one and the committee is to be congratulated upon its choice. Many other activities took place dur- ing the term, all of which were ex- ceedingly Well managed. The Spring term went strong under the leadership of President Walter Reeve, with Maxine Claussenius, vice-president, and John Shafer as secretary. An enjoyable dansant was given at Porter School. The social committee had others under consider- ation, but due to a promise of action on the part of the Student Body Dan- sant Committee the matter was dropped. On Circus Day the class managed two successful concessions. These were Well patronized and were quite profitable. The Junior Prom was, of course, the main event of the term and it Was socially and finan- cially one of the most successful ever given. The attendance was good and the novel decorations called forth much pleasing comment. Too much credit cannot be given to Walter Reeve and to Will Lowe for the splendid work accomplished. Class of December '23 AST fall, when we were High Sophomores, we accomplished a good deal under the officers we elected at the beginning of the term. George Belvel was president, with Barbara Eubanks, vice-president. Marion Biggs held the oliice of sec- retary, while Margaret Bodinson and Martin Pennock were class represent- atives. During the term we planned and carried through a highly successful class dance and numerous other events, including a class hike, which built up our spirit for the spring term. As Low juniors we started the term with a class election, Marion Biggs becoming president and Lulu Kalis vice-president. Martin Pen- nock was made secretary, and Fred Braue, editor, Frank Russell and Hallie Putnam became class repre- sentatives. Much was done to make our class known and respected this term. VVe are the holders of the Advisory Baseball League championship, which cares for our athletic laurels. We promoted and managed a dansant at Porter, which paid for our page in the ACORN and left a surplus for next term. A class hike to Pinehurst was one of many notable events. VVe managed a candy sale, and our con- cession on Circus Day was a big at- traction. VVe have learned how, and, in coming terms, we expect to make a name for ourselves in an athletic way as well as socially and politically. We can do it, watch us! F. B., '23. i.'!' 'uw' f 'A 1 V .J Class of June 924 HE class of june, '24, has con- tinued a promising career under the direction of Miss Condon and Miss Tully, this year's Soph advisors. Its ofiicers for the fall term were: Eugene Nissen, presi- dent, Marian Vaughan, vice-presi- dent, Charles Mitchell, secretary, Charlie Von Tagen, yell leader, and Stella Boot, editor, and for the spring term, Horace Crawley, Vir- ginia Faull and Charlie Von Tagen, for president, vice-president and sec- retary, with Leon Konigshofer for yell leader. ,Much of its attention has been given to athletics. Five of its boys made the varsity teams, and "CHE" McDowell was selected as coxswain for crew. In football the class sup- plied eleven boys for the teams. Lyman Lamb and Chas. Phelan, with team records, upheld the standards of the class, as did its mermen, Konigs- hofer and Eckburg, with their "As," Baseball was an important factor this season, three of our boys making the team. George Belvel and Sitaro Towata held down the right field and short patch, and "Gene" Nissen pro- tected the plate. Two dansants were given last term, one to the High Frosh and one to the Sophomores. The class possessed a popular con- cession on Circus Day. A profitable candy sale was held by the girls. Altogether, the class has had a phenomenally successful year through Miss Tully's supervision and Craw- ley's and Nissen's work. S. M. B., '24, Class of December ,24 HE class of December, '24, started out its second term with enthusiasm. The class took to athletics rather than to social activi- activities during its High Freshman year. We were represented in football by having three men on the first team, namely, Cooper, Anderson and Heidt. Our advisory had six teams in basketball and baseball. Two enjoyable dances were given to the class by the Low Freshmen and the Low Sophomores. Both were looked forward to, and judging by the size of the crowds were decided successes. The oflicers of the Fall term were: President, Ed Cooper, vice-presi- dent, E. Lechner, secretary, George Rittler, class representatives, M. San- ford and Ruth Bonnie. As Low Sophomores we continued to show the same pep and enthusiasm of the two previous terms. On Tues- day, April eighteenth, we successfully staged a dansant at Porter School for the High Sophomore class. In the interclass swimming meet we did very well, winning the meet from the Seniors by a safe lead. A pie sale was given on May tenth and proved very popular with the student body at large. The oflicers of the Spring term are: President, Hugh Bernecker, vice- president, Ruth Bonnie, secretary, George Rittler, class representatives, Will Hellman and .lean Allen, and Fred Cuthbertson and Austin George, editors.

Four weight teams from our class won school championships and at the same time, their numerals, thus prov- ing that we can hold our 'own when it comes to athletics. Mr. Cornick, our advisor, was so elated that he arranged a dansant for the occasion. , . -Another dansant was also very suc- cessful and greatly enjoyed. The oflicers of this term were Alex, lVlcRitchie, president, Jean Faull, vice-president, McKay Shadburne, secretary, Clarisse Newman and Bill Hunter, class representatives, and Armand Faraday, editor. During the spring term our chief claim to fame was the way in which we managed our concessions on Circus Day. Our class furnished five con- cessions: "Read 'Em and Eat," "Throw the Dart," "Foxy Kum-Bac," a candy booth, and a booth selling Eskimo Pies. This term was under the leader- ship of McKay Shadburne, Doris Lauenstein, Harold Ackley, as presi- dent, vice-president and secretary, re- spectively. Clarisse Newman and Bill Hunter were class representatives and Alex McRitchie was yell leader. Our class has always shown the proper spirit and we anticipate much for the future. E. G., '25. Class of December ,25 HE class of December, 192 5, although it has been in the school only six months, has shown unbounded enthusiasm and spirit. Circus Day was a banner day for the Low Freshman class. Our con- cession, the "African Dodger," was enjoyed by all. . Our fellows already have come to the front in athletics, with remark- able spirit for the latest arrivals in the school. Several future track and swimming stars have been uncovered in this season's turnouts. We are eager to show our spirit in the Fall football work. Our class officers have performed their duties well and have met with approval on all sides. The officers are as follows: Billy Cundall, pres- ident, Marian Clinton, vice-presi- dent, Dudley Waller, secretary, and Herbert LeFaVoure, editor. We were represented on the Administra- tive Board by Marjorie Mason and Frank Cowen. H. LeF., '2 5. WV Se f A :ul-rw 1 GIRLS, GI.EE CLUB AND OFFICERS HE Glee Club has come to have an important part in High School aiTairs, under the excellent leadership of Mrs. Hunter. It is in evidence at commencements and meetings of school organizations, and its talent largely makes up the casts of the various operas and other theatricals of a musical nature. This year the club has taken part in Citizens' Club meetings, Teachers' Institute, Founder's Day exercises, Seniorpheurns, and Commencement exercisesg and the success of the "Mikado" was due in good part to its ability as a Whole, and the quality of its individual stars. V 'WH X BOYS' GLEE CLUB The Orchestra HE past two years have witnessed a great increase in the size of the Alameda High School orchestra under the able leadership of Prof. W. I. Stratton. Wlhen Prof. Stratton first undertook the training of the young musicians they numbered only twenty, now so many have become interested in orchestral work that the class has to be divided into two sections, one of twenty-four and the other of twenty-seven members. Besides this orchestra a band of twenty pieces has been organized, thus creating still another source of interest to those who are learning to play the brass instruments. The orchestra at present lacks only three instruments for a proper rendering of orchestral pieces, the viola, the bass viol and the bassoon. In order to raise money to obtain more instruments, entertainments have been given by the orchestra itself and by the Citizens' Club during the past term, from which quite a substantial sum has been realized. In all the school activities the orchestra plays a very necessary part. It is the first and last thing on the program at graduation, Senior plays, Seniorpheums and operettas. Not only is it at the service of the school upon all occasions, but very often it is called upon to assist in pro- grams for the school clubs and civic organizations. For several years past whenever it has entered the yearly contest of High School orchestras at the Greek Theater it has been awarded a high place for general excellence. However, much to the regret of Prof. Stratton word has been received that no contest will be held this year. ' de il .w mln.- ' Cglglyvifl 4 P". "Star and Key" HE Star and Key Honor So- ciety seeks to uphold the ideals of scholarship and friendship among the students of our school, encouraging and rewarding those who make the Honor Roll with a member- ship in the society, and later with the privilege of wearing the Star and Key pin. The membership of the society numbers over one hundred and fifty. During the Fall term the Star and Key staged a most successful Hal- loWe'en party and dance, a skating party at Idora Park, a big Senior- pheum act, and closed the term's fun with an exciting auction and raffle. This term's activities opened with a dance at Haight School. A hike to the Big Lagoon, later in the term, was Well attended. The society offered prizes for the two best original short stories or plays Written by any student of the High School. The winners were Lucille di Vecchio and Ida Loughlin. Their work is published in the ACORN. Invitations to join state and nation- al honor societies have been received by the Star and Key this term. The officers of the Fall term were: Ralph Vollmar, president, Courtney de Colmesnil, vice-president, Dor- othy Blake, secretary, James Kerr, treasurer, and Edna Walker, editor. Ralph Vollmar was retained as president for the Spring term, with Courtney de Colmesnil, vice-presi- dent 5 Ida Loughlin, secretary 5 James Anderson, treasurer, and Francis San- ford editor. FRANCIS SANFORD.. FW' F 'W Circus Day OT DOG! Let's go! VVatch our smoke! This was heard around the campus on Circus Day, May 24. Old clothes were in order. Everything from a bathing beauty or chorus girl to a forty-niner or hobo. Scotch kilts were in evidence, as were also small girls with hair hanging down their backs, all-day suckers in their mouths, and baby pumps on their feet. A ten-foot bicycle ridden by a staid professor with a top hat was a novel sight. School adjourned promptly at one 0'clock I the "ju" Board didn't go to schooll and the physics "lab" was immediately besieged with a hoard of hungry masqueraders. Hot dogs, cake, pie, regular and Eskimo, all were in order. Five minutes after the "lab" opened its windows the shelves were bare of eatables. Then came the grand parade and crowning of the Queen. The parade consisted of everybody with old clothes, and was led by Professor Upphoff. Then came the celebrated Alameda High School orchestra, consisting of three pieces, followed by three Scotch kilties, carrying the beautiful gold crown with which the Queen was to be crowned. The Queen! She tripped lightly up the carpeted back steps, and stood in front of her throne, when it was seen that the "queen" was no other than our old friend, Will Brooks, dressed in the costume of his best girl. The coronation speech was made by Julian Dickie, and the solid gold crown fgilded cardboardj was set upon the "queen's" brow. The concessions then opened. "Roll your own," "Read 'em and Eat," "Photographs while you wait," "Hit 'em and win a baby doll," were a few of the more popular ones. Probably the most exclusive and popular of the concessions was the nickel dance. The majority of the customers got ten dances for a nickel, for Manager Upphoff forgot to collect the "cush." After the concessions were sold out, the athletic events opened. The Freshman-Sophomore Rush was the sole athletic event. Many more were advertised, but got lost somehow. The Freshmen won the first rush, but the Sophomores came back with a bang and won the next two. Several notables, among them Wesley Heidt, got smeared. We next come to the notables of the day. Manager Francis Chamber- lain, dressed as a school girl with purple hair, did fine work in managing the affair. The "Ju," consisting of the Chamberlain brothers, Ashley, Dixon, Heinz, Weeden, Steele, Walker, Akesson, Rutherford and Uppholf, tried to do some excellent work, and nearly succeeded. When night approached, bringing an end to the most successful Circus Day ever held ffinancially and otherwisej, more than 5190.00 had been added to the Associated Students' fund, which money considerably lightened the pockets of all who attended. , ' .f MM' WE DUDMQT SEE M 'M C 'SSH 24 DAY Q' Q5gf3,ggMN ?.'f!'LTlER 22 W-I SQEETEICAL 1 hx., 3 T I AUWFDA n XX X335 CJXAJ o: Q , ,xx - to 1 . .kaalfksi , ' 'WY Q20 - f X ghr' QW?

To be sure, Mr. James is dead and, as rumor has it, he has been dead for a number of years, but Mr. Conan Doyle has proved that to be no drawback and Mr. james says himself that if a ghost cannot write then he is no ghost. By the way, how many of our readers know that a ghost is really two parts, the part that one thinks with and the part one scares superstitious people with? At least Mr. james has it this way and he states that a ghost is a good deal of trouble what with having it laundered and starched once 21 week, and then, too, he says, the penalty of leaving one's ghost neglected is a week's work on the Pearly Gates, sandpapering and polishing, He would rather be a live man that you could put a bullet through than an immortal ghost you can put your hand through. He said that he had spent much time around our high school as he had a sort of fellow feeling for some of the administration and offered to write up his historical notes for us, if we could use them. We could and here they are.l DEAR MR. ED: Well here is them notes I promised you I would send you, so here they are. Things appeared sort of natural like and homey when I come the first time, there being a chain gang and two fights in action, only I had a hard time seeing all of them without missing some of them. The head husky in the chain gang packed a sign that told the world to 'fVote for Bunker." All the little side-kick huskies packed signs, should of been hammers because they of bantered and ridiculed with bricks etables. Only I saw right off that it tion of learning because the participants looked too hard to of been professional criminals. too, only they was being sort and other veg- was an institu- 0 tw' rl , .- f HI ,shi 45 ill ,N Well, anyhows I was right on hand next Septem- ber to see what new line was going to be sprung. I was on the platform, too, with the rest of the nickel plated elite, and occupied a chair, too, only Dr. Thompson didn't see me and sat on me and rumpled me up something fearful, only ghosts can't yell without blowing themselves away and he didn't hear me talk. The meeting got eloquent, and while Bunker was exhorting the scrubs I plumb expected some of them to start yelling "Halleluya" or "Amcn,'l but they stood the temptation nobly and confined themselves to fighting among themselves and yelling "drag him out." That afternoon the officers successfully enjoyed an Ad Board meeting, only they must of confined them- selves to joking, because they elected Walker and Ashley to put out the ACORN. YVell, a good deal of time was spent in deciding what to do and how not to do it, and Bunker ap- pointed a Committee on a pin to decorate the juniors and another to put on dansants, not a pin to put on dansants, but a committee. The headliner for the next meeting was Judge Weinrnann, who gave us advice on how not to get pulled, only I could of added to it considerable, be- ing more versed on crime than he is. While he spoke on law and order the Judiciary Board illus- trated his remarks by dragging out all offenders. President Bunker reminded the Pin Committee they had been appointed for some time and action was what he craved. A week later he rounded them up and they voted to buy up a Stadium Bond, also they was informed that some thoughtless hombre was mistaking the poor little seniors for scrubs and that something must be done about it to keep ,em from getting their feelings hurt and leaving school. Most of those present was seniors, and they was in favor of marking the scrubs with a tin tag or a collar or something, but the scrubs said no and anyways why didn't the seniors look like seniors and avoid embarrassing er- ut ,':n. 4J7,t L i 3 Q Q A-.L Aus! .ul L- .S .mn .LA Q I .

Finally it come to tagging the -Iuniors with a class pin and letting outsiders guess who was scrubs at their own risk. Next day they was a meeting of all the students as well as lluuker and Melbin, at the Porter Opery llouse, and while the gallery groaned with scrubs they listened to a talk on Safety First. Upphoff was upstairs keeping order and every time he took a deep breath two or three scrubs got pushed over the edge, making it sort of disconcerting to them underneath. 'l'hree wandering minstrels showed us how it was done south of Saint Louie, and informed us that a dime would do if you wanted to hear the rest. The Doctor, with a sense of the fitness of things, or- dered a fire drill and after the resultant free for all, every one guessed he got his moneysworth and went In class praying for another. Before long they was another get to-gether and the students was told for the first time since the term before that the Senior Play was the best ever produced. Humor is out of place at a serious affair like a student meeting. Once their was a producer that said his wasn't the best, but three of the audi- ence fainted, and that practice was condemned as dangerous. 'l'he speakers all looked like they had been caught stealing horses, or with too many aces in their hands, but they bucked up afore night and the play come off fine if you didn't know how it went, after which the school heaved a sigh of relief and went back to their history lessons. Tommy Ilacon told the students that if they didn,t hang together they ought to. Next day the whole school was on hand to listen to Mr. Knowland talk, On the tenth of january nominations wel'e foisted on the school. After a week that made Tammany look like an old time camp meeting and a presidential election like a Sun- day school picnic elections were held. The day was featured by several free for alls, a number of hats were exchanged and a good time was enjoyed by all concerned, and the night was rendered hideous by the celebrations of the respective victors. It was most as exciting and glorious as the time we held up the Golden State Limited back in '63 and my old pal joe got hung, only it was hard on joe. A little later the Ad Board got together to join up the deficiencies and the assets. Pretty near the end ofticers was installed, which was the cause of much innocent amusement among the student body at large, but was mostly squirrel poison for the active participants. Upphoff said later that the stage looked at least IIO feet above the seething multitude, which kept too still when he was pulling jokes, and laughed at the part he was trying to wring their hearts with. Bunker said he was scared himself and when he didn't have nothing to say he always said it, So he sat down and looked happier. Nlelbin couldn't re- member what to say, so he made the best speech of the lot, rivaling old Doctor Sharpe, who use to sell Korn Kure down Memphis way, in all the glory of his matchless rhetoric. Walker talked for five minutes ceiling and when he looked down wasn't nobody there tu listen to maybe best for Walker, because it membering his speech and holding later on. When Biggart begun to talk they filtered back, though, and enjoyed theirselves all through his talk, which was the talk that made Upphoff famous, by making him "the Big Administration." Ashley told Walker, and I heard him, that he was glad he was bowlegged so his knees didnlt chatter, and he touched the student body deeply around their hip pockets, when he said Student Dues was payable any old time the mazuma was forthcoming. straight at the he found they him, which is saves people re- it against him tiey vt is btst ind didnt occlsion no ribild comment 1 I tn othtr officers would like to sry 1 fcvs vsords more, to go li e me forward in .1 book only this is behind and md of explain things as I see them in your palatial edi- tice The vice presidents I have saved till last becos l 'J ' : ' ' if i 1 ' lik' l - ' ' - .

Well, when I come to getaline on how you was taking the resumption of school duties about Feb. I, if ghosts had a heart I would of had heart failure becos it looked for the moment like it wasn't a high school no longer, but a kindergarten. A per- son had to have a horn to get anywheres in the hall, and then he had to proceed slow and cautious with a flagman in front, to avoid spraining his ankle or having his ghost stepped on, as the case may be. It really wasn't their fault, I guess, but simply the way their mothers dressed them, but they was most an- noying, and a few less of them would of been much too many. Saturday the teachers and scrubs sighed with relief as one man and went on their ways rejoicing. Next Monday after school they was a hot time in the study hall. Scrubs vs. Upphoif, while he was showing them how to pick out a president. Every teacher that comes looks the mob over and says to Uppholf, "Little boy, how long will this last?" and Upphoff just turned green, which didn't help things none. Well, they was fifty eight candidates for president, not counting Upphoff, who resigned every time he was nominated, and one feller got four votes and won. Such is life west of the Rockies. Next day they was nothing amiss but Miss Con- nelly, who was missing, and Lum and MacKenzie give a good exhibition of second story work and fence scaling, with the ju. Board in hot pursuit. The chase continued until noon, and the ju. Board went thru most all the edibles at the Luncheonette afore they found the miscreants, who was turned loose with the injunction not to do it again till they could afford it. After the holiday that Lincoln got born on they was a girls' meeting, but I didn't attend, becos I don't trust no girl or collection of girls, at a girls' meeting, why think, suppose they found a man ghost at their meeting, he would likely got tore up for snitching, and get one month's work on the Pearly Gates for losing hisself and having to be made over. It looks bad for Akesson, he was detected with a powder puff. Did he steal it or does he use it? Washington's birthday didn't get no rise out of the State Legislature, so the schools kept house along with the jails and penitentiaries. It rained again next day. Two scrubs disappeared. Doctor thinks they dissolved in the rain, but Mr. Ellefson says the cat must of got them. I think they was adopted as dolls by some of the senior girls. Mystery explained. Everybody has the flu. The scrubs must of caught cold an "flu" away. fjolly clever, whatij But joking aside this is no place for an innocent ghost. Two male members of the school Cnot boys-they belong to the ju Boardj jimmied their way into the Frosh Reception, and are said to have escaped safe. Both were intact when last seen. They have been asked to appear on the Orpheum circuit at five hun- dred per night as the only ones who ever walked in and escaped whole. Dex lost his heart, however. Francis Chamberlain has had croup the last couple of days. We thought you was a senior, Frannie. Walker looks like a last year's rose, and makes remarks most promiscuous-like to whom it may con- cern about the postponement of the 'tMikado," and the weather in general. From what I've managed to pick up of the rehearsals it should be postponed forever, and shot at sight when it reappears, but then I ain't no highbrow. Next day the team cleaned up Oakland Poly, 9 to 7. I got tangled up in the bleachers when I started for my residence after the game. It ain't no joke being a ghost. Don't let no one argue you into becoming one. It looked like spring arrived on a bob-sleigh this year. Snow on the hills and down most everyone's neck, now. No one was in school, all had gone out to welcome the snow and get frostbitten and imag- ine they was in Canada. As I remember snow it is sort of cold and somewhat wet and its main use, as I see it, is to be where you ain't. They was a big .x X 5 r ll, A I ,I Y :'4:'.l:5,Q li i' 'un il .T Q I-Q.

'l'he middle of March was a student meeting. If noise was any indication it looked like the "Mikado" would go over big, only it ain't, because all the noise was made by the cast and the managers. Uni- lligh donlt hold no terrors for us, leastway the way we went through them plumb resembled how my pal joe use to go thru a car of Wall Street and English dude tourists. Only joe got hung in the end and your team only ought to. the Mikado came out shooting off both versity bankers Well, hips and going strong. It was a good show both nights, only why donlt they let him hang himself before he sings? Another scalp on your belt, 'Frisco Poly your fa- vor 4. to 0. Things are breaking good, even for the scrubs. Well, the day after, I come into the hall by Daniels' Latin Emporium and there was a gang of gilded youths that looked like they had been caught smoking or copping a baby's candy or some other crime that was too minor to be heroic. They said they were waiting for a Senior play tryout and they looked callow and green like I use to feel before a train robbery on the U. P., because I never use to be quite sure the thing was going to stop or going right thru me, and if you're going to be a train robber you can't run from nothing whatever, except the tax collector or a lady evangelist. 'I'hey was a pasteurized rodeo on the grounds at high school on the zqth day of March. They wan't no horses or hard boys, but all the old steal-games was there all the same, and mostly being operated by girls you couldn't say no to nohow. A man would get sandbagged with a smile and wake up to fine a liver gone. It ain't no way cowardly to run from a pretty girl becoz it's the only means of self- defense you got, so I run. Unk Leaf comes out. Editor has gone to Canada, and left word he won't be back. Now for nine days without no history to plague them who ain't no good at it. We beat 'I'aft 18-Q on Saturday.

The only pin prick of light in this desert of goodness was the disappearance of two upper classmen under mysterious circumstances, but our hopes for a story was shattered by finding them at Zingg's. Big Senior play meeting April 26. Dorothy Blake made a hit when she forgot and told the audience how good it was instead of how good the play was. Otto tainted. Acorn: tickets are getting rare as Swede organ grinders. "Clarence" made a big hit, you were aimed right and told to get going by Mr. Mercer, and you put on a pie sale without any one but Bill Brooks stag- ing a riot. 'I'his school is getting simply honey- combed with goodness. Around May the to they was a lot of long-faced Seniors that had flunked an English A Ex. That ex was intended to die young, anyhows, but don't know it. At the High Junior Prom, Doctor demonstrated that you couldnlt keep a good man down nohow. Saw Lum around school with a mustache and a shave to distinguish the rest of his face from the mustache. Nominations was held peacefully, no bricks or other comment was passed. Lots of politics this time and lots of campaign literature. The only magazine I ever used in elections was the magazine of a 30-30, and it's much simpler but a little risky. Regular old-time vaudeville at the Seniorpheum. The dear little seniors ain't got much time to stay. Ain't it sad? To think of their being scrubs at college, just to think! Anyways I want to tell you that all this gas being shot around about "no more school spiritf' and "ah, them was the good old daysl' sort of poppycock ain't worth the pyrotechnics to place it on the road to henceforward by way of heretofore, and the boy that peddles it ought to be shot, too, only usually he's the guy that told it to the fellow who knows a friend of yours.

The rooting sections at the games were splendid. The students turned out and yelled for all they were worth throughout the whole football and baseball seasons. Credit is due to the girls for their line turnouts, almost outnumbcring the boys. The football seas ft' al - - " - ' ' ' 1011 u ls un normlc for the team, but the rooting sections showed that the old spirit of the Alameda High School is never downed, as was proved during the baseball season. The rooting at the student body meetings was the best. The students were treated with selections from the jazz band and they surely appreciated it. Now here is a word for the future. Although this year was a success, there is still room for improvement, because nothing is perfect. Organized rooting is an art in itself. lt is a little deeper than most people think. The idea is not merely to go to the games and make a lot of noise. Iiach yell is different. livery one should learn thc yells and learn how they are to be done. There is an art just in that. A well executed yell will sound better, be carried further, and will create more spirit than a ragged one yelled by twice the number of rooters. The yell leader can only lead the yellg the rooters must do the rest. Therefore, let the rooters of tomorrow realize what is expected of them. For co-operation helps both their school and yell leader at the same time. Coming yell leaders will base their efforts on the records left by Yell Leaders Chamber- lain and Akesson, who, during the Fall and Spring term, respectively, set high standards in the leading of organized rooting. a 'l,In N' " Wa S?

Due to the superior knowledge of football shown by the older boys, Alameda went down to defeat by the score of 9-O. Oakland High's football team met Alameda on October 5th at Bay View Park. The VVhite and Gold won through its superior knowledge of the game. However, Oakland's fighting spirit was in evidence and Alameda's task was not an easy one. Alameda scored in the first quarter on a series of end runs, Pennock finally taking the ball over. Alameda converted. Oak- land made a final effort to score and was only halted on our five-yard line. lfrom this point on Oakland played a defensive game. ln the final period Melbin recovered on Oakland's fumble, and raced down the field to a touchdown. A trick play added seven more points to Alameda's total. Alameda journeyed to Sacramento and in the gentle warmth of the valley played hard against a superior team, or rather two teams, for in the second half Sacramento used eleven fresh men. Alameda scored in the second quarter when Elliott intercepted a forward pass and ran almost the entire length of the field for a touchdown, and Heinz broke through and downed a Sacramento man behind his line. Score, Alameda 8, Sacra- mento 4 5. Alameda lost to one of the best prep school teams in the state when she met Santa Clara. Santa Clara received all the breaks and as her team outweighed the Alameda boys the result was inevitable. However, Alameda's fight made the game interesting throughout. Commerce High of San Francisco was defeated by Alameda at Lincoln Park. The game was long and uninteresting and ended with Alameda on the long end of a 46-o score. After losing to Sacramento, Alameda won from the Deaf and Dumb School, 68-7. Taft High School sent a football team to Alameda, expecting to annex plenty of honors. Alameda, how- ever, thought differently, and so on the morning of October 22 the two teams fought out the question. The Taft team was dangerous at all times, but Alameda displayed a superior brand of football and showed up Taft's weakness. Before the game Taft was best bet, but Alameda worked hard and won. QM., DUNN ales? rl-ylfflx' X51 5.0. Avy, 4 F" Alameda scored early in the first quarter on a series of bucks and end runs. Alameda kicked off and Taft ran the ball back to their own twenty- five-yard line. Taft completed a forward pass for 30 yards, made their yards, then lost the ball on downs. The ball was on Alameda's 40-yard line. Lum made 3 yards through center, and Melbin IO yards on an end run. An off tackle buck for 4 yards more. Then 2-3-7 yards on center bucks. Taft stiffened under her goal posts. Lum finally went over and Elliott converted. In the second quarter things were quiet, but the third quarter brought forth many thrills. Taft threatened to score twice and was prevented only by hard work on the part of the Alameda line. The quarter started with a long forward by Taft to Alameda's ten-yard line. Things looked bad, but the line held and Taft lost the ball on downs. Alameda kicked and Taft brought the ball back to Alameda's 20-yard line by another long forward. Taft then tried three more passes, but none Were successful. The fourth quarter made Alameda's victory complete. Two touch- downs were made by Elliott, one forward pass and an intercepted forward, another buck, and still another by way of a trick play. just before the game ended Taft intercepted an Alameda forward pass carried to Alameda's I0-yard line. Another play and Alameda had won, score, 24-0. Alameda then went to Stockton and was defeated on a slow, wet field. The last game of the season was played at Lincoln Park with Berkeley. Too little cannot be said about this game. The score was 67-O. TRACK TEAM 0, .,,- CK. LOT of promising material was uncovered in track this term, and although Alameda did Well in several meets, the results were a little disappointing, considering the good track men brought to light. Track is a maj or sport and should be treated as such, but in Alameda insuHicient interest is evidenced, possibly because of the fact that hard training is absolutely necessary. The following fellows made up this year's track team: Captain Lack, discus, javelin, shot, Manager Seabrook, half- mile and mile, Fred Pyke, pole vault, 130-pound 50-yard dash, P. Pyke, half-mile, Ned Crowl, mile, Andrew Holmes, 440, Allinger, high jump, Hintz, pole vault, Cooper, discus, shot, Hanger, javelin, Clarke, broad jump, Kenney, sprints, Ashley, one-half mile and mile. The team trained hard and managed to hold Berkeley to a 78-66 score. Very Well done, all conditions considered. Alameda came home from Hollister with the long end--77-72. Owing to our spring vacation we were unable to send a full team to Palo Alto to compete in the North Coast section, California Interscholastic Federation, and consequently the best Alameda could 'do was to place two men-Lack in the discus, and "Peanuts,' Clarke in the broad jump. The placing of these two men made them eligible for the State C. I. F. meet held at Stockton. Both boys failed to figure, the meet being won by Huntington Beach High of Los Angeles. Several new records were estab- lished in this meet, notably that of Hauser, of Oxnard High, who made new interscholastic records in the discus and shot put. Valuable experience was gained by our two representatives. Our last track meet, that with University High, resulted in a 79-69 defeat for Alameda. Several events were left out of the meet, and it is probable that if it had not been called on account of darkness We might have Won. Clarke figured strong, as did Ashley, the former setting a new record in the broad jump, and the latter taking second in both the mile and half-mile. Unsettled weather conditions played havoc with Alameda's schedule, meets with Vallejo, Richmond and Hayward being postponed on account of rain or unsettled weather. It is too bad that these meets had to be postponed, because the experience gained by the team would have stood them in good stead in both C. I. lf. meets. fe' ' HE mming WIMMING received great impetus in Alameda this year. With only four members of last yearys team, new interest was awakened and new spirit was developed. The leaders in this and the men who brought swimming into its own in Alameda were Swimming Captain Eckburg and Swimming Manager Dixon. Fckburg was with the team last year, and Dixon came from Cogswell, where he made himself well known in the S. F. A. L. The result of their work is a swimming team which has just completed a very successful season.

Every race, except the 220 and 44.0, was closely contested. Alameda fought hard, but Berkeley won by 21 points. ln the C. 1. F. meet held at Sutro Baths on May 20, Alameda made a very creditable showing. The meet was won by Berkeley, while Lick Wilmercling just nosed out Alameda for second place. Billy Cundall took a Qcond in the stroke and Maxwell Barry made a second in the 130-pound 150-yard swim. , Captain Eckburg placed third in the loo-yard event, and Clarke Chamberlain took two points in the back stroke and one in the 50-yard. Vernon Rue took fourth place in the diving. The event of the day was the relay. Alameda has a line collection of short distance swimmers in Dixon, F. Chamberlain, Barry, Eckburg, Heidt and C. Chamberlain. Berkeley finished First, but was disqualified and the event was awarded to Alameda. Captain "Gus" Eckburg swims the 100 and the second lap of the relay. 1'Manager Dixon paddles the 50 and ioo and usually hits the water as the gun starts the relay. "Wes" Heidt swims the 220 and 440, and Clark Chamberlain navigates the 50 and ends the relay. Leon Konigshofer is the back stroke swimmer. Rue and Josephs always place well. Cundall can swim faster with the breast stroke than most fellows can in any form. Davies is a long distance man who is always making Heidt step. Ashley is a 130-pounder who knows how to swim the fifty. jordan helps Cundall in the breast stroke, while Barry usually leads the 130-pounders in the 150. Tennis V LTHOUGH Alameda High's tennis team was defeated in the A. C. A. L. by Berkeley, there is every indication that a winning team will be forthcoming during the next year. Greater interest is being shown in tennis, especially by the lower classmen, which is a good sign of awakening spirit. Our tennis team consisted of Swain, Renaldo and Nagayama. It was picked by inter- class competition. In the A. C. A. L. Swain played singles, while Renaldo and Nagayama took care of the doubles. ' Swain won the interclass tennis tournament for Ellefson's advisory. 1,51 PWA GO E, . v, .

Al Steele was elected captain and Marion Biggs, manager. Biggs, as manager, succeeded in securing the finest schedule this school has ever had. Positions on the team were keenly competed for, there being over seventy-five fellows out for the nine positions. These were cut to Hrst and second teams. Coach Rittler deserves much credit for putting a team into the winning column with but four seasoned veterans. Inter-advisory baseball started things going, and after many hard fought battles, Mr. Young's team nosed in first. The schools of San Francisco gave Alameda little opposition: Commercial, 1, Alameda, 5, Polytechnic, O, Alameda, 4. Alameda High found more trouble with the Oakland schools: Deaf and Dumb, 2, Alameda, lg Qakland Technical, 8, Alameda 1, St. Mary's, 6, Alameda, 5, University, 3, Alameda, 153 Vocational, O, Alameda, 8, Concordia, IO, Alameda, 2, Oakland Poly, 7 Alameda, 9. Fremont succeeded in defeating Alameda twice, the scores being 3 to 2 an 7 to 1. ti Alameda gave the Taft "Oilgushersl' an I8 to 5 defeat. The U. C. Freshmen beat Alameda 7 to 4. The A. C. A. L. opened on April 28th with Alameda playing Berkeley at Berkeley. lt was a hard-fought game, but Alameda did not have their batting eye with them, so they lost. The final score was 7 to I. Alameda came second in the A. C. A. L. when they defeated Hayward, score 5 to I. Livermore forfeited to Alameda. The team follows: '4Lucky Strikew Steele is a pitcher who makes the ball do just what he wants it to do. He is the possessor of a "Four-Star 'Alf' "Palmolive" Nissen is a catcher who can throw and hit. He is always there. l'Chubby' Upphoff, as first baseman, tries hard, and he surely can hit. 'fllagol' Robbins is a second baseman who hits well and exerts himself. "Cycle" Towata plays short and is always trying. "Butter-crusty Shultz is a third baseman with an arm. He has a knack of getting a hit in every game. This is his second season. 'fPaul Ashu Belvel is a right fielder who swings a nasty willow. He is a second year man. "Bloomers'l Higgs is a good all-around player. He plays center field and takes his turn at pitching. He played last season. "Chesterfield" Tawse takes care of the center garden. He is a good fielder and hitter. Hintz, Kennedy and Williford act as substitutes. They will make the next team. In order to build up material for future years, Coach Rittler has organized an "American League" for the little fellows. There are four teams, each one taking the name of "Big Leaguew teams. Alameda lost the first game of the A. C. A. L. to Berkeley at San Pablo Park on Friday, April 28, 1922. Seven errors, the stick and field work of Thatcher, and the inability of the Alamedans to solve Morck, a southpaw, explains how Berkeley won the title. Thatcher was the star of the game. The Berkeleyan knocked a homer and a triple in three trips to the bat, and accepted six chances in the outfield, robbing Gene Nissen of a certain two- bagger in the fourth. Al Steele was in a jam in the first, second and third innings. Poor base running on the part of Berkeley prevented a run in the first inning. Errors and a triple accounts for three runs in the second, and Thatcher added one in the third. The final score was 7 to I in favor of Berkeley. Alameda won second place in the A. C. A. L. on Friday, May 5, by winning from Hayward, 5 to 1. As a result of the victory the "If" Society went into a special session. If Alameda had displayed a similar brand of ball against Berkeley a week previous the title of the league might be elsewhere than in the college city. During the game Hintz displayed real class, cavorting around the keystone sack. Hintz handled ten chances with but one error and that a doubtful one. In addition he clicked a nice double in a pinch and delivered a single at a time when it was most needed. Altogether the youngster who has been playing with the second team had a nice day. Only one solid blow was gathered off Steele's offerings. He was given real support for the first time. The other two hits were fiukes, taking bad bounds and getting away from the fielders. Coach Smith started Gusta and after that worthy individual had absorbed an unrelished beating, Smith crooked his finger and in came Grindell to take up the work. Brain work on the part of Otto Rittler, with his men following instructions for the first time, netted three runs for the Alamedans in the second inning. Biggs opened by beating out an infield hit and the infield played in close for a bunt, but was foxed when Upphoff placed a pretty roller between first and second. Rohr was passed, Kennedy sacrificed, scoring Biggs. Hintz singled and Upphoff scored. Rohr scored on an error, making up our five runs. A Word for the Future LAMEDA has always ranked high in sports, and there is every reason to believe that she will continue to do so in the future. She has a peerless coach with years of experience, who knows how to bring out the best in every team. The men who make Alameda's teams are good athletes, who play the game for the game's sake. Most of them have followed athletics since they were big enough to carry a bat or kick a football. - . ln short, our chances for a state championship are always good. , But they are good only if every one gets behind and shoves. ' The future of sports in Alameda lies, not with the upper classmen, but with the Fresh- men and Sophomores, because, although as a rule the teams are composed of upper classmen, they need support to work well, and when they graduate new men must be ready to step into their places. Only those who have trained for years will be qualified for the signal distinc- tion of belonging to Alameda's Big Team. So, Frosh, get out and train. You may not make the team at first-most of our best players didn't-but you may be sure that when your time comes the experience you will have will stand you in good stead and you will find that your years of work are amply repaid by the privilege of holding the name of Alameda High School high among other schools. ' J, 1 u -V 4 P' ibn 17 lvlllngzq '35-453 4 v-"" .v. , M44 L-J Tribune Marathon OR the fifth time in succession Alameda High School has participated in the Tribune Marathon with honors. This event, sponsored by 'the Oakland Tribune, is held on Admission Day of each year, and has always proved popular with amateur runners of the Bay section. Whenever the Alameda High School has taken part it has won some signal distinction. On last Admission Day our team won the prize for having the most runners finish in the allotted time. The team of twelve men received silver medals for finishing within the hour. The trophy brought home by the team was a shield bearing two runners on a silver background. Besides this new trophy Alameda runners have proved their worth in former Marathons. As proof of their athletic prowess four Tribune Mara- thon cups occupy places in Alameda's row of trophies. Our team consisted of: Keville, Guy, Crowl, Onions, Holm, Cooper, Moore, Grodem, Pyke, Secundo, Snow, Low and Bernecker. Unstinted praise is due to Otto Rittler for the pep and dash that he infused into the Marathon team. A If each year the Alameda High School should put such a team as these men into the Lake Merritt Marathon, there is no doubt but that the school would be known throughout the state as speedy competitors in track and other athletics.
