T LAST the 1930 ACORN is in your hands and with it rest the efforts of the staff
to give you a reminder of the days which, we are told, are the happiest of
our lives. May this book help to bring back to you your favorite haunts about
school, and may you, seeing a friend's face, recall his companionship. We have
endeavored to give you a hint of the characters or habits of your associates in the
Senior Horoscopes and the Humor Section. We mean it to be a bit sentimental
for the Seniors-to give them a representative of their school when they go forth
to parts unknown. For those who may still look forward to remaining years of
high school life, we have also endeavored to make it an accurate index of infor-
mation concerning people and things about school.
' The pride in our building has been given to us, the classes of the last four years,
as a heritage-we have endeavored to help you to preserve it by incorporating
views of the school in our art work. The Events Section, including what was for-
merly known as the Drama and Social Sections, has been enlarged, since we
realize that these activities rank among the first in importance in the school.
With thanks to our advisers for their generous aid, and with the hope that we
have succeeded in our aim to please you, we consign to your keeping these pages
of memories and laughter, the 1930 ACORN.

Fashion in Education
HE world is celebrating, this year, the two thousandth anniversary of the birth
of the great Roman poet, Virgil. There will be many gatherings, many ora-
tions, many essays in honor of the dead poet whose work in the golden age of
Rome marked the high standard of literary endeavor of that age and whose splen-
did genius has reached into our own times. From the Renaissance to the last
few years the educated man, in a broad sense, was the man who knew Latin,
Greek, and mathematics. These were the fashion in education. These symbolized
the highest achievement in poetry, drama, and science. Upon this sacred food fed
the mighty scholars for almost a thousand years. It was a firm belief that neither
art, nor literature, nor medicine, nor law, nor science could thrive lustily without
the foundation of these great branches of learning. Now they have become, at
least Greek and Latin, obsolete, and the places that knew them "know them no
more, foreverf' Hardly a university in the land demands either of these for
entrance, and the doctrine of formal discipline, of which these were the founda-
tion, has vanished from the credo of education. Homer and Virgil, Pindar and
Horace, Plautus and Aeschylus, have alike vanished from the required educa-
tional makeup of these modern times. Science, invention, the death of the old
gods, and the materialistic ideal in general have relegated these great masters to
what seems a permanent place of useless dignity in the halls of thevanished great.
And yet, if we examine the literature and the art of the past five hundred years,
we will find the spirit of these great ones pervading them in a very real and vital
way. As in other things, fashions change in education. They are here today and
forgotten tomorrow, but the master chords which have been struck by Homer or
Virgil vibrate through the centuries and reach to our own time.
May I express the hope that in this twentieth century after Virgil there may be
a hearty and general revival of interest in the great masters of literature and art,
and that we of the Alameda High School may help to keep alive the priceless
torch lighted upon the Roman altar these many centuries ago, and that we will
pass it on undimmed to our successors.

OUR years ago next August, the new Alameda High School building was
opened, and another Freshman class entered its portals. This was the present
graduating class. Unlike many other Freshman classes which were bewildered
their first week of school and for this reason were very noticeable, our class was
entering a new school with all of the other students. Consequently we had the
same advantages that our higher schoolmates had. This gave us a very good start,
and since then we have taken advantage of the mistakes of the classes preceding
us, with the result that we actually believe we have been a great help to the
At a meeting in Room 227, which was conducted by Student Body President
Norman Cords, we elected Sivert Haavik class president, and Beryl Hollingberry
vice-president. By these competent officers we were well guided through our iirst
year. Roy Hurley led the class through the Sophomore year, with Dorothy Rem-
ick as vice-president in.the Fall term and Edythe Barton in the Spring.
During our Low Junior term, Walker Shephard and Edythe Barton served as
head administrators. This term our junior pins were purchased under the capable
management of Harry Minton. The traditional junior Prom was given during our
High junior term. The Prom was considered a great "social success" by all of
those present. It was managed by Ned Allen, with Mr. Coughlan aiding as ad-
viser. Francis Topham served as president through most of the term, but when he
left school he was succeeded by Vice-President Alice Mills.
Entering our Low Senior year with Ned Allen and Alice Mills as the class
leaders, we put over a Senior play that was the greatest financial success in the
history of the school. This gala affair was managed by Walker Shephard, to
whom the class is greatly indebted because of his successful efforts.
We are now in our last term at the Alameda High School. We have two excel-
lent leaders at the head of the class in the persons of Harold Zanzot and Edythe
Barton. At the time of going to print our main activity is the planning of the semi-
annual Seniorpheum, under the management of Walter Tischer. Aside from this
activity, Elmore Gerlach has been busy making plans for the Senior Ball, which
we hope to make a colorful event.
Throughout our four years in high school, members of our class have branched
out into every activity, especially athletics. Now, as graduation draws near, we
feel that a great part of our success is due to the opportunities that the new school
has given to us, and that, in turn, we have done our bit to contribute to the prog-
ress and welfare of the Alameda High School.
NED ALLEN, Effifor.

HE Class of December, '30, promised, on its entrance into the high school,
that the world could expect big things of it in the following four years. We
elected Charles Bannworth to be our leader for the first term, with Mozelle Mar-
tin as vice-president. Henry Pond and Frances Craig were chosen as the leaders in
the Fall term, and under their guidance a successful candy sale was held. Whenwe
advanced another notch in our scholastic career and became Sophomores, we were
led by York Westgate and Hazel Fitts. During their administration we gave our
united support to our concession on Circus Day. Members of our class also par-
ticipated in athletics. Henry Pond again took over the reins of office in the fall of
1928, and Mozelle Martin assisted him as vice-president. Several candy sales were
held, and we gave our support to all school activities.
When we passed the half-way mark and became Juniors, we selected William
Smith as our president, and Helen McPherson as vice-president to manage the
affairs of the term.
The feminine faction of our class prevailed in the fall elections, and three girls,
Mozelle Martin, Helen McPherson, and Dorothy Ward, held the class offices of
president, vice-president and secretary. Henry Pond managed the High Junior
Prom, which was a social and financial success. We won the trophy given to the
class with the highest percentage of student cards in the school, and hope to
retain it through the following terms of our school life. Dwight Steele managed
two profitable dansants, which helped promote the Prom.
William Sweetland was unanimously elected Low Senior president, and Beryl
Hollingberry was chosen vicefpresident. Frank Walkup was appointed manager
of the Low Senior play, a production which furnished enjoyment to all and aug-
mented the class pocketbook. Several dansants were well attended.
This, in brief, is the history of the Class of December, '30, of the Alameda High
School. In departing, we wish to extend our hearty thanks to the faculty and the
students for their generous support throughout our career. We expressly wish to
extend our thanks to Mr. Daniels, Miss Conley, Miss Bennett, and Mr. jones, our
class advisers, who have been so largely responsible for such successes as we have

IB. CONLEY and C. Daniels sent a Messinger to Hunt for Steele and Silver near
a Pond at the foot of a Monrin. The Messinger took along Helen McPherson
Anderson jack. They rode in a Franklin Coupe as far as they could and then Goto
horse. The horse would do nothing but Ney and they had to keep saying Ghiorso
to keep it on the road. They came to the top of a hill which they had to Walkup
justin time to stop Triebels which were Rollinfsj clown hill.
"This is a Sweetlandf' said Helen, "there are a Smith and a Smeltzer making
steel Bowles." 'll Betts ya," said Marie to Melba Thompson who was Holden
Bryan's hand, "if rhey'd Turner it would make the Colburn faster and heat the
steel, Au's'tin, and rhey're making Nicholas out of it."
"Let us have a game on this Loux-uriant grass," said jack, so they began to
bowl. "Fujii!' said Bertha, the Siberian cheese hound, "what a Simpson! I could
have made a Du Four Orra six on that shot if I had been you." But the ball rolled
down hill and fell into a Craig Botdened with Bush Hollingberry, Bartlett pear,
and Wagimer apple trees. There it fHorj weged between two fCaj tons of Klays.
In the Craig near a Kern they found a brewery and everybody drank El vin et Col
vin and wanted Morris.
Erickson fell 'Edwards FerGus who was able to Ward off the attack and every-
thing was all Wriglmt.

HE High junior Class will soon become Low Seniors after Completing a very
successful year, which saw the inauguration of year numerals for the guard of
the Low junior pin, thereby giving it more significance.
Several dansants enriched our treasury, and our great Junior Prom, which was
so ably managed by George McConnell, class officers and others, left colorful
We have, furthermore, made our mark in sports, which was to be expected
with James Triolo as president of the class.
We feel that if as High juniors we have been good, as Low Seniors we will be
"bigger and better than ever."

ITH the termination of the present semester, a very successful 3A career will be
brought to a close. Having been one of the first classes to officially open the new
term, we intend to be among the last to close it.
Had he been compiling his famous work now, Mr. Webster could only have obtained a
true definition of the word "progress" from us. Our elections have been up-to-date and
fair. Activities have been abundant. Dansants have been given throughout the term and
were among the best given in Alameda High.
The 3A class is envied throughout the athletic circles of the school. We are well repre-
sented on the basketball, baseball, and swimming teams, and have had no small part in the
winning of games for our Alma Mater. Our Class funds have increased considerably since
our Freshman year, more this year than ever. RICHARD SI-IEPI-IARD, Edimr.

Wo years ago a number of timid, abashed students became Freshmen in Ala-
meda High School. As time went on the class became better organized and
more interested in school affairs. Now these same students form the High Sopho-
more class, a group of well-worn, high and mighty veterans, well fit to take over
the upper class duties of the Low junior class.
The class members are born athletes. The football, basketball, track, swim-
ming, and baseball teams have all been benefited by our mighty he-men.
Last term's administration, headed by President Walter Grazzini, had two
class meetings and one dansant. This term's administration, headed by President
Dale Peak had three class meetings and one dansant. Both administrations have
been very successful.
This famous class has been placed in eleven advisories, headed by Misses Law-
son, Hays, Geiger, Clow, and Oehlmanng Mesdames Darison and Weisenborii,
and Messrs. Morehead and jackson, some of the best teachers in the school.

HE Class of December, 32, has enjoyed a year of unusual interestrand suc-
cess. Under the leadership of Presidents Dick Brace and Edmund Ursin we
have forged ahead from our lowly estate as Freshmen to a place in the sun. The
outstanding class achievement was the 1B party held in October, an important
event financially, socially, and artistically. This colorful occasion seems the more
successful when it is remembered that never before has a class given an evening
affair so early in its history. The class officers and committee members were
greatly aided in their efforts by the enthusiastic support of Miss Hitchcock and
Mr. Cummings. The 2A dansant, given on May 7th, was another feather in our
cap, the sum of money raised being the greatest ever realized at an affair of the
Both in athletics and scholarship the class has already made its mark. The Class
C basketball team won the interclass championship and with it their numerals.
The class is generously and ably represented in track, baseball, football, tennis,
and swimming. With such a start, great things may be expected.

FTER having successfully completed nearly two terms as the Freshman Class
of Alameda High School we have proved our worth and ability as students.
During the first term the Freshman Reception was given by the upperclassmen,
and everyone agreed that it was a great success. Under the direction of Helen Nie-
man, the vice-president of the first administration, we composed and sang a song
in the student meeting which was received by the entire Student Body with great
The new administration under Terry Hackett has held several snappy meet-
ings. Among these was a business meeting in which a High Freshman Dansant
was proposed and was decided upon. This dansant was given under the able
management of Homer Helmstein and the music for the occasion was provided
by George Wagner's Serenaders.
During the coming year we hope to be able to accomplish those things that will
be left for us by the classes ahead. We think a brilliant future awaits the Class of

E ARE two hundred timid but adventurous pilgrims from the sunny forests
of Grammar School Land, who have thus far been under the guidance of
the chieftains of the four tribes: Wasluington, Haight, Porter, and Lincoln. For
eight happy, carefree years tales have come to us of the Land of Higher Education
and the city of Alamedahigh, glamorous tales of adventures on the Rocky Road
to Education and the honors that await all who complete the journey.
In January, after many tribal gatherings and ceremonial fires and with the
hearty best wishes of our chieftains, we were launched on the Great Adventure.
Arriving at Alamedahigh, we were bewildered and somewhat frightened by
the bustle and noise of this strange city in comparison with our quiet, little forest.
The inhabitants, we found, were very much like our forest friends, and in our first
tribal, the Freshman Reception, our fears were quieted.
Wfhile in this city we hope to surmount impending difficulties and send back
reports to cause the chieftains to be proud of our deeds of scholarship and also to
encourage on-coming pilgrims.

leadership of Fred Van Sicklen, who was assisted during his administration
by Lorna Tuttle, vice-president, john McEwen, recording-secretary, Sivert Haa-

The administration was able to secure many and varied programs for the stu-
dent meetings, outstanding among which were talks on athletics by Brick Morse,
Biff Hoffman and Dick Bartellg a recital by Gunnar johannson, distinguished
pianist, and a most inspiring program for the celebration of Armistice Day.
Splendid spirit was shown by the Student Body throughout the entire term in
patronizing the student activities such as dances, plays, Orpheums and athletic

HIS term was especially interesting with the Operetta, Senior Play, junior
Prom, Seniorpheum, Senior Ball, numerous dansants, and the various spring
sports all claiming attention.
The meetings were called to order by President Sivert Haavik. Vice-President
Alice Mills presided in the absence of the president. Yell Leader Dick Bordeaux
led the Student Body in the singing of "America" and the pledges to the Flag.
Recording Secretary jim Triolo read the minutes of the previous meetings. Finan-
cial Secretary McConnell spoke on the sale of student cards.
Many worth-while speakers were obtained for the student meetings, among
them Dr. Roy Akagi, Richard Halliburton, Rev. Gail Cleland, Dr. H. C. Bryant,
Dr. Aitken, and Clipper Smith.
The meetings were not lacking in entertainment of a lighter nature. Several
orchestras and some good individual local talent performed now and then. "There
being no further business, the hymn was sung and the meetings were adjourned."

HE Girls' Association of the Fall term of '29 enjoyed one of the greatest dis-
tinctions that could be conferred on the administration. The Alameda associ-
ation acted as hostesses to the Annual Girls, League Convention that was held
here last term. Sixty-five Bay County schools were represented. Ruth Groves, our
president, made a delightful representative of the association. Besides this activity
several other meetings were held.
The Girls' Association of the Alameda High School was piloted through the
Spring term of '50 by President Elizabeth Fields. The term was a most pro-
ductive and gratifying one. Many meetings were held at which school talent was
employed. Two of the meetings were turned over to the assembly for popular
singing. Two outstanding features of the term's activities were the Senior meet-
ing with prominent radio stars represented, and Madame Strykov Ryder's Student
Body presentation. Madame Strykov Ryder is a prominent modern composer,
lecturer, and pianist.
Out of appreciation for the work of the administration the associated members
presented the olficers with league pins.

HE Star and Key Society has brought to a close two very successful terms. In
the Fall, under the leadership of President Haavik, an interesting and enter-
taining luncheon was given. The club sponsored a gala affair in the form of an
Interclub Jamboree, the most ambitious project of its kind yet undertaken. The
evening featured original stunts and dancing in the gymnasium and refreshments
in the Cafeteria, which was very cleverly disguised as a Parisian cafe.
The Spring term opened with a luncheon and the installation of officers, at
which Harold Wilson took over the office of president. In February the society
grew adventuresome and went on a skating party to the Oakland Ice Skating
Rink. A dansant was given one noon in the gymnasium, which brought in more
money for our growing treasury. In May the annual Star and Key Dance was held,
and then, to close the term, the society participated in a very successful Circus
There have been thirty-one pins sold to the new permanent members. Many
High Freshmen and Low Sophomores have become temporary members, and they
are now waiting and working patiently till they may wear the pin that signifies a
high scholastic standing. DOROTHY REMICK, Editor.

HE Block A Society, led by Varsity Track Captain Bill Brooks as president,
had one of its most successful terms during the fall of 1929. Due largely to
the kindness of Alameda business men, contributions from boys, and the hard
work of the physical education coaches, the letter society was able to put over
their annual Thanksgiving Fund for feeding many needy Alameda families.
President Robert Downer has also had a very successful administration during
the Spring term. Downer introduced the Block A belts which several of the fel-
lows are now wearing. As this is written we have not had our annual initiation of
new members, but we anticipate an unusually good one this year. Too much credit
cannot be given our founder and adviser, Coach Otto Rittlet, whose interest and
application in regard to the Thanksgiving Fund was certainly the chief reason for
its success. The society may receive the credit for this charity, but it could not
function without this "man behind the throne."

BOVE you behold the venerable "Circulus Latinus," the largest active club in
the school. We do not like to boast about ourselves, but we will say that
there is none better. Our colorful meetings are held on the second Monday of
every month. The Latin Club prides itself on having peppy meetings and very
This term we were the first club to put over a clansant, which, of course, was a
very successful one. The idea of publishing a club paper was originated by the
Latin Club, the publication being called Tempom, and making its appearance at
each meeting. In the recent Jamboree we added to the entertainment with a real-
istic gladiatorial combat. Each year the club sponsors an invigorating hike which
proves to be our outstanding social event of the year.

FTER an absence of a year the Debating Society, dedicated to the promotion of
forensics and argumentation, was again brought into being when a re-
organization was effected last fall. Little actual debating progress was made dur-
ing 1929, but a group of interested students paved the way for a sudden growth
in membership following the initiation party and program on December 6th.
The first term of the new year following the reorganization, the club was pre-
sided over by George Mantell. Witli the success of the membership drive culmin-
ating in the initiation program, came hopes of an active Spring term. Robert
Downie, co-organizer of the society, was elected president, and he mapped out an
extensive program for semester activity. The constitution was revised.
Heading all debates, the interclass series of contests was promptly inaugurated.
Try-outs resulted in the following standing class teams: Seniors-Robert Dow-
nie, George Mantell, and Henry Yamamoto, Juniors-Donald Fasset, Donovan
Smith, and Elden Rice, Sophomores-Charles McNeill, Lucille Waldear, and
Lura Morse, Freshmen-Evan Skelly, Sam Hall, and jane Thomas. On the ques-
tion, "Resolved, That More Discipline Be Used in Our Prisonsf' the Freshmen
debated with the Sophomores, emerging victorious. The Seniors over-pointed the
Juniors in a debate on the question, "Resolved, That the Metric System of
Weiglats and Measures Be Universally Adopted." For the interclass champion-
ship, the Seniors debated with the Sophomores later in the term.

HE Spanish Club has experienced two most successful terms under its presi-
dents, jim Triolo and Williain Smith. The meetings have been diversified
and numerous and this year have featured Spanish games and Spanish music.
During the Fall term the club took part in the Jamboree at which it staged a
mock bullfight. Leading roles were taken by William Smith, Laverne Randall,
Bill Crawford, and Jim Triolo, while the other club members, dressed in Spanish
costumes, acted as spectators.
In the Spring term the club took over the management of a Spanish concession
on Circus Day.
We have enjoyed two interesting terms and anticipate others equally entertain-
ing and instructive in the future.

HE Eurydice Club was first organized in 1927. Its purpose is to bring together
the students interested in music. From time to time this club has sponsored
musical programs to which all interested students were invited.
One of the outstanding social events of the Spring term is the tea given to the
faculty members by the Eurydice Club.
The Girls' Glee Club of the Fall term of 1929 was successful in its endeavor to
establish some relationship between music and other studies, the English classes
that were studying "Idylls of the King" were invited to room 505 to hear the girls
sing the Cantata, "The Lady of Shalottf' This Cantata is a musical arrangement of
"Launcelot and Elaine."
Not to be outdone by the boys of the gym classes, the Glee Club furnished a
Thanksgiving dinner for a family which was temporarily destitute.
The Girls' Glee of the Spring term of 1950 formed a large Part of the chorus in
the operetta, "The Marriage of N anette," and for this reason the individual
activities of the club were somewhat limited.

' both in membership and the scope of its usefulness. Last term's most suc-
cessful social event was the Christmas Party in the Cafeteria. This term we have
given a play that was very successful, both financially and artistically. We have
also published a club paper whose new issues are eagerly awaited. The German

to several out-of-town girls, we also put on the memorable Columbus skit at our

in furnishing amusement for the onlookers. During this last term we worked for
the success of the Girl Reserve Carnival of the Nations at the "Y," as artists con-
ducting a portrait studio.

League of International Education Associations, was organized during the
Fall term, 1928. Its aim is to try for a better understanding of the peoples of other
countries and to develop toward them a spirit of tolerance and good-will.
Last December the club was host at the annual Christmas program and lunch-
eon at which thirty-nine clubs of California were represented. Several interesting
speakers have addressed the club during the last term, among them Chaplain
Clemens, U. S. A., who spoke on Borneo, and Margot Kuper, a French-German
girl attending Oakland High, who talked about her native land. Club parties have
been held at the homes of Roberta Kneedler and Dale Peak, Where members have
enjoyed themselves to the utmost. Hikes and picnics have been held, the most
recent being to Muir Woocls and Dimond Park.
The club has a membership of over sixty.

meetings consist largely of the consideration of obstacles encountered during the
drill period and other military problems. The remainder of the meeting is given
over to other business and entertainment.

HE Student Players' Guild has been an extremely active drama organization
for the past three semesters. It was formed in February, 1929, by former
members of the Dramagora and the Footlights Club.
During the Fall semester a pin was adopted which is now in use. The design is
a laughing mask inscribed on a background of black enamel, with the letters
A. S. P. G. embossed thereon. -
On Match 27, the Student Body was treated to a one-act play, "The Pearls," by
Dan Totheroh, the parts being taken by Edythe Barton, Mildred Dettmer, Sivert
Haavik, and Elmer Borden. At the time of writing, there are in preparation, for
the latter part of the semester, a one-act play for the Seniorpheum and two short
plays for the Student Body.

"The Marriage of Nanette"
HE operetta, "The Marriage of Nanette," composed by Agnes E. Peterson
and Louis W. Curtis, was presented on the nights of April 10 and 11, 1930,
by the Music Department. Mrs. Hazel B. Hunter was the vocal director, Mr. Fred
Carlyle, the dramatic coach.
The part of the Comtesse de Martigny, a veiled beauty, was played by none
other than Ellen Flymm! The Comtesse seemed quite unladylike for one so nobly
born, in fact she Hitted around quite like a little fairy. It is quite remarkable
how the heart of the "dear little Duc d'Autin" was captured by the Comtesse
Heloiseg nevertheless, that is what happened! joe Castro, as the Duc, kept the
audience in gales of laughter by his clever interpretation of his part, Virginia
Elliott portrayed cleverly the role of the sister of the Comtesse, who disguised
herself as La Gitana, a charming gypsy.
The parts of Nanette, the pretty village maiden, and Rene, her lover, were
played by Betty Young and Donald Caughy. Other members of the cast were:
Florence Fisher, Betty Hathaway, Edward Morgan, Alfred Hunter, Duane Win-
nie, Meredith Stowe, Sid Truesdale, Paul Gurley, Scott Walke1', Tom King,
Alden Stanton, Marjorie Miller, John Harman, Eugene Wixon, Billie Lee Fried-
man, Betty Spann, Wilbtir' Gurley, Warlter Grazzini, Robert George, Elsa Peter-
Choruses of gypsies, villagers, and jezmer jillefrer were made up of ninety-five
well-trained members. The scene, laid in eighteenth century France, was designed
by the Art Department, supervised by Miss Emily Sherman. The French atmos-
phere was further carried out by the usherettes, French Club members, who
dressed in French costumes.
The managerial staff, headed by Dick Moulthrop, may be complimented, along
with the rest of the hard workers, upon the success of the operetta.

The Charm School
HE Class of june, '50 presented "The Charm School" on October 4, 1929.
The three-act comedy was written by Alice Duer Miller and Robert Milton.
Its success was even more far-reaching than is suggested by the frequent com-
ment, "a good play splendidly actedf, The auditorium was full, and a sum of over
four hundred dollars was cleared. Mr. Fred Carlyle, director, the managerial
staff, headed by Walker Shephard, the cast, and the faculty advisers of the class
all deserve a large chunk of cake, if not a whole cake, for their hard work.
The cast was exceptionally good, the reference for this statement, moreover, is
Mr. Carlyle himself. Mildred Dettmer and Harry Minton were the leads. Harry,
as Austin Bevans, was sole heir to a girls' boarding school. fYou are right if you
guessed that he jumped at this opportunityj Sivert Haavik played the part of
David MacKenzie, a history teacher! Tom Richardson as George Boyd had to
take his medicine and be a rejected lover for once. Although you might never
have thought of Frank Matter and George Burnley as twins before, they took that
role in "The Charm School" as Messrs. Jim and Tim Simpkins. Complications
arose when they both fell in love with Sally Boyd, played by Doris Westlake. One
couldn't blame the poor fellows for "falling" for her, and she also pleased the
audience very much with a childish "lithph." Frances Osborn drew laughing ap-
proval from everyone as an old maid, Miss Curtis, who tried to rejuvenate herself
when she fell in love with "dear Mr. Bevansf' Harold Zanzot wore a becom-
ing set of whiskers and played the part of a lawyer. The part of his ex-wife,
Miss Hays, the mistress of the "Charm School" under Mr. Bevans, was played
realistically by Josephine Hamilton.
The following members of the cast were students at "The Charm School":
Elizabeth Fields as Muriel Doughty, Edythe Barton as Ethel Spelvin, Barbara
Hurst as Alix Mercier, a French girl, Enid Thompson as Lillian Stafford, Tulita
Gutierrez as Charlotte Gray, Connie .Iohnstad as Madge Kent, and Betty Ful-
ghum as Dotsie.
A Full House
HE three-act comedy, "A Full House," written by Fred jackson, was presented
by the Class of December, '50, on the night of February 28, 1930. Mr. Fred
Carlyle directed and coached the carefully chosen cast in a play which was a great
success on both sides of the footlights.
Jeanne Smeltzer, who played excellently the part of Susie, the maid, was forced
to say, for perhaps the first time in her life, "I don't know nothin'." Jack Rollins
played the part of a bold, bad, and comical thief so well that we wonder if Mr.
Carlyle was the only one who trained him. Garnes Sollman was a pathetic little
bride, true to her husband, who she believed had become a crook! The part of
the husband, Mr. Howell, was played by Elmer Borden, not a sweeter groom
could have been found, and of course he really was true to his "wine," Edwin
Hunt as Ned Pembroke wrote love letters to a chorus girl and made refreshing
The ACORN I Page 99 1
proposals of marriage! The part of Daphne Charters, Ned's fiancee, was intelli-
gently played by Genevieve Caron. Williain Sweetland acted admirably the part
of an "Heng1ish" butler. Kathrine Montin took the role of a shocked "auntie,"
Miss Winnecker, from Yonkers. Other members of the cast were William Pen-
nington, Alfred Nicholas, john Fujii, and Richard Holden, bold and fearless Hat-
foots, Dorothy Rawitzer as the landlady, Theresa Austin as a show girl, and
Helen Cain, Ned's long-suffering mother, owner ofthe jewels that caused all the
The managerial staff was well directed by Frank Walkup. Faculty advisors,
cast, staff, and director all cooperated to make "A Full House" the success that
y Hi Seniorpheum
HE Class of june, '50, presented their Seniorpheum on the evening of May 2,
T 1950, before a well filled auditorium. The program consisted of sixteen acts,
eight of which featured various and sundry dances of different degrees of excel-
lence. One of these, we are told, inspired a shower of pennies from the generous
boys of the front row! The girls, tumbling and the exhibition put on by the Uni-
versity of California gym team received bounteous applause. Two skits, one by
the Sword and Shield Honor Society and the other by the Student Players Guild,
were cleverly acted. A little impersonation of Cecil and Sally, in this case called
Cedric and Molly, sounded quite familiar to our "radio ears." The Orpheum's
greatest novelty was the presentation of two acts of "japanese Specialties," a
skillful demonstration of wrestling and fencing. The sixteenth act, a fashion
show, very evidently pleased the audience and ended the evenings performance.
The senior faculty advisers and the manager, Walter Tischer, are now relieved
of their worry and responsibility concerning the Hi Seniorpheum and they may
rest assured that it was a success.
OVEMBER 23, 1929, was the great occasion of another Hi Seniorpheum. This
one was presented by the Class of December, '29, and, like all other
Seniorpheums, it was absolutely "the best." All the credit for its big success goes
to the class faculty advisers, whose "untiring efforts" combined with like "untit-
ing efforts" of Carrington Bowles, manager, and more Huntiring efforts" of all
the vast number of participants, who helped to put the Orpheum across in a big
An item of interest is the fact that, aside from the regular syncopation of
"Rhythm Rustlers" and contortions by acrobats, the program consisted chiefly of
dance numbers. An opera burlesque, "Cleopatra,', presented by the Boys' Glee
Club, was really a "big swigf' A skit, "Fifteen Minutes on the Gridiron," also
stood out among the songs and "taps."

Y DIEARZ The Prom was simply adorable and everyone actually seemed to
have the time of their lives. You know it was in the auditorium of that
school- across the street-on Friday, of course, the 8th of November, the day of
that big football game with Berkeley-and they did the cutest things with, the
decorations. There was an enormous flower basket on the stage and the floral idea
was the motif Qdon't you think that's a good word, my dear?j for the rest of the
room. Helen McPherson must be terribly ingenious or something to fix things so
spiffy, don't you think so? The orchestra was actually imported, I mean to say, it
came from Oakland or Emeryville or some other big city. Bud Pond managed the
affair awfully well and I think the High juniors were quite smart to pick someone
who could put over such a divine occasion, my dear. There was simply oceans of
punch and actually you would have thought there was something in it, you know,
something not quite nice, I mean, because everyone seemed so witty and gay, but
of course there really wasn'r.
ARLING: You should have been here for the Ball. I mean the Senior one, of
course. It was last Friday, December 13th, you know, and I actually think it
was the best dance I've been to since that Junior Prom I told your about. The
Chinese atmosphere was awfully fascinating, my dear, and those cute musicians
in Les Haeffner's orchestra were positively quaint in their costumes. You know,
dear, I'm very shy and retiring, but some of these more stubborn persons got at
the Punch Bowl and actually they did seem to enjoy the guzzling process. It was
simply divine when Carl Ravazza sang "Miss,You', in a very, very impromptu
manner. They had some screamingly funny idea of calling out numbers which
corresponded with the numbers on the programs, my dear, and when one's num-
ber was called, one just sat out the rest of the dance. I really couldn't understand
the object, though I puzzled quite hard for several minutes. It was amusing, I'm
sure, because everyone was in a panic over it, isn't that too cute? Someone said
that jack Dempsey was the manager and I really think he must be awfully clever
to manage such a complicated thing, and think up all those quaint ideas at the
same time. The programs were quite ritzy, if you know what I mean, and every-
thing was quite impressive, anyway, it was simply gorgeous and I had the time of
ARLING: The Jamboree was riotous, positively riotous, my dear. You should
have been there. You always do want dates-it was the 11th of October. I
canlt tell you everything because so many things happened at one time, actually
I mean that one was kept quite pop-eyed in the attempt not to miss a thing. Of
course, you know that all the classes and clubs contributed to it, but one quaint
little honor society, the Star and Key, was really the head of the affair. That's just
TL-e ACORN I Page 101 I
as it should be, of course, I mean because all the really intelligent people belong
to that organization.
They started out with a mock Student Body meeting, and Dick Bordeaux was
simply too sweet in his curls. He'd be such a pretty girl, it's a pity he's just a boy,
isn't it? They had a lot of simply divine entertainment, and it went over perfectly.
There was a terribly wicked looking Parisian cafe in the cafeteria, and although
you might think they couldn't make much of a den of vice out of that place, it had
a positively sinister air about it, my dear. After one had gone the rounds one
danced in the Gym 'till the small hours, and one didn't become fatigued in the
least, because one was enjoying oneself to the superb limit, actually, my dear.
ARLING: That Junior Prom, that everyone has been hearing so much about,
and came off on March 14th with such a bang that really, my dear, I was
quite actually startled! Of course, you understand there was no unseemly noise,
oh, no indeed-just the heavenly orchestra and the rhythm of dancing feet and
those people in the corner who drank punch with such a hopeful air, you know
the type, my dear. The decorations were all green and orange, and someone very
charmingly explained what it was all about, you know, my dear, the quaint idea of
green for St. Patrick's loyal adherents, and the orange for something or other else,
anyways, it was all done in a quite adorable manner because Eleanor Pickersgill
has such good taste, don't you think? The orchestra was divine, and you know
what all the girls think of Carl Ravazza! I think so, too. I'm sure George McCom-
mell should gallop back to New York in a few years and start a nice little night
Club all his own, just so he can keep on managing things so beautifully, donit you
agree with me, my dear?

The R. O. T. C.
HE Reserve Officers Training Corps was organized with a definite purpose.
This purpose is commonly referred to as the mission of the R. O. T. C. This
mission every R. O. T. C. unit strives to complete. This mission is of great value
to the boys of high school and college age. This mission provides the boys of the
nation with certain advantages. These advantages may be classified under two
headings, namely, mental and physical. Under the heading, "mental,,' would
come courtesy, obedience, and leadership ability. A few more could be mentioned,
such as initiative, thoughtfulness, self-confidence, and composure. Under the
heading, "physical," would be placed physical fitness and health.
The list of subjects which are placed under the heading, "mental," are those
which military training tries to develop. Military training tries to teach the cadet
to use his head. To bring this about, the cadet is promoted to a responsible posi-
tion where he meets emergencies which require him to think fast. At other times
the cadet is confronted with other emergencies which require his initiative. Wlien
the cadet is advanced he is given charge of a group of other cadets. He must in-
struct these cadets soundly. The teaching of the cadets under him requires him to
have a certain composure and self-confidence, which give weight to what he tells
the men under him. The first thing that a recruit is taught is courtesy, and then
comes obedience. These are especially emphasized.
' Another purpose of the R. O. T. C. is to make boys of high school and college
age physically fit. The first step in reaching this goal is to teach the cadets the
necessity of physical fitness, and the second is to give drills which help toward
developing physical fitness.
The purpose of the Reserve Officers Training Corps may be summed up in
brief: it tries to provide physically fit leaders of tomorrow, not essentially mili-
tary leaders, but leaders, also, in the worlds of finance and business.
This term, the R. O. T. C.'s activity included the Federal Inspection, several
rifle matches, and the annual competition. The rifie team worked hard and had
the satisfaction of capturing sixth place in the Ninth Corps Area match, and
second place, Ninth Corps Area division of the National Intercollegiate match.
The results from the Williani Randolph Hearst Trophy match have not been re-
ceived as yet. A new feature of this year's competition was the hrst aid drill.

COLOR BEARERS HEARST TROPHY TEAM
FTER several weeks of practice the Professor of Military Science and Tactics
recommended to Dr. Thompson fifteen cadets to represent the school in
rifle matches. The following men were selected: Lawrence Strong, Francis Gor-
don, Elden Rice, jack Barnard, Gus Scheuermann, Henry Fokens, Richard Shep-
hard, Earl Netherwood, Lon Fox, Paul Gurley, Henry Eberstein, George Meyer,
Howard Grotts, Gerald Brown, and Everett Farwell. Lawrence Strong was
The first match the team entered was the Ninth Corps Area. The Alameda
marksmen took sixth place, which, if we take into consideration the number of
teams competing from schools in several states, is a very good showing.
The next match was the National Intercollegiate. The ten highest teams in each
Corps Area compete in this match. The scores have been sent in and the results
showed Alameda in second place in the Ninth Corps Area.
The Hearst Trophy match next claimed the attention of the rifle team. The
team for this match, however, is composed of five men, the five best shots on the
preceding teams. The members who won their places were: Lawrence Strong,
Francis Gordon, Elden Rice, Gus Scheuermann, and Jack Barnard. These places
were highly covered and hotly contested. Every member of the team established
his right to the honor through his merits as a marksman. The results of this match
have not been received as yet.
Besides the regular rifle reams, rille teams composed of two men are selected
from each company and the band by their respective commanders to shoot for the
American Legion Marksmanship Cup. The cup is awarded every year at the
The fifteen members of the rifle team will receive silver medals from the school
for capturing sixth place in the Ninth Corps Area match. Five high shots this
term"will receive bronze medals from the school, and the Hearst Trophy team
will be awarded gold medals, provided they come within twenty-lifth place.

OOTBALL, we may say, enjoyed a fairly successful season this year. Under the
able coaching of Chris Freeman, practice began in August, the week after
school opened. We hope for a successful team next year because a number of first-
string players are returning, and an even greater number of second-string men,
including Smith, Bordeaux, Calkins, Stanton, Oliver, Hayden, Beach, Hafsal,
Torpey, Airchison, Broderson, Rarto, Dobbins, Weed, Helmstein, Bannworth
Alpzmezia 13-Oaklmzd H igh 0
In their first game of the season the Alameda team journeyed to Oakland, to
come home with a 13 to 0 victory. The first touchdown was made when McNeese
caught a punt on Oakland's forty-yard line and ran for a touchdown. The extra
point was scored by a pass to McNeese from Smith. The second score was made
early in the second half when Heberer tossed a pass to McCoy from Oakland's
ten-yard line. Captain Wes McCoy turned in an exceptionally good game, as did
McNeese, Heberer and Feldhammer.
Alameda 9-St. ZVImiy'5 6
The second game of the season was one of the most spectacular games played
this year. The "'Horners', were at the rail end of a 6 to 2 score until about five
minutes before the end of the game, when a pass was made that brought Alameda
up to the "Galloping Gaels' " one-yard line. Alameda scored and converted, bring-
ing the score to 9 to 6. Smith, McNeese, Nova, McCoy and Feldhammer were
Alameda's stars. Lee Bajuk starred for St. Maryls.

This game was played on a Saturday, the day after the St. Mary's game. The
Varsity and coach had to travel to the Peninsula City and return home gloomy
over a scoreless tie. Alameda was penalized many times and this probably kept us
from scoring. Burlingame tried to scare the Gold and White by putting in her
first string men in the middle of the game, most of whom were six-foot ones, but
the "Wilclcats,' did the same, and at the end neither team had scored.

The fray on Friday, September 20th, like the preceding game, ended in a score-
less tie. McCoy, Smith and Feldhammer played well but the Alameda team
showed weaknesses in offense as well as strength in defense. Passes and reverses
were used to good advantage by the "Yellowjackets."
Alameda 6-Roorevelt 7
Alameda suffered its first defeat in this game. The husky Roosevelt team came
over to the Neptune Stadium and, with Bertolli as their quarterback, succeeded in
making a touchdown and converting after it. Alameda started an attack, featuring
first Bordeaux, then Nova, which led to a touchdown. An attempted pass for the
extra point failed. Hurley and Captain McCoy played exceptionally well in this
Almfzedrz 0-Polytech 7
The Polytech game was none too good from the Alameda point of view. In the
third quarter an Alameda pass was intercepted and run to a touchdown. The
second team was put in by Chris Freeman after the first half to save the first string
for the next game with Hayward. Fumbling was prevalent with both teams and
neither team showed up very well.
Haywmzf 0-Alamefia 13
Alameda won the first league game of the year by playing a fast aggressive
game against the Hayward "Farmers" at Neptune Stadium on October 1 lth. The
first score was at the beginning of the second quarter when the "Hornets" used a
series of bucks, reverses and finally a pass, Nova to Smith, which sent the ball
over the goal. Nova plunged through the line for an extra point. The second
touchdown was made in practically the same manner, when Nova ran it over the
line in the last quarter. Alameda failed to convert.

After two no-game weeks the Alameda Varsity expected to punish Centerville
severely. However, Centerville resented this idea and the "Hornets" were held to
a scoreless tie. The boys from the Centerville school, though small, had lots of
fight in them and kept Alameda's team on the lookout. Will Smith was quite
severely injured in this game, thus eliminating himself from the Piedmont and

the most exciting games of the year, even though the Varsity returned from the
"Highlands" defeated. The Alameda touchdown was made in thrilling fashion
by the team's splendid cooperation with Nova, the fullback, who fought and
plunged his way from the forty-yard line to a touchdown, encouraged by the yells
of hundreds of Alameda rooters. Edelen and Leonhart scored for Piedmont with
the able assistance of Emil Corning. Russell fBillj Calkins, playing his first year,
showed up well for Alameda at halfback position, while Nova and McCoy also
starred for the "Hornets,"
Berkeley 27-Alamecia O
Trying and expecting to break the jinx that Berkeley has had over Alameda
throughout their years of football rivalry, the "Hornets" were sorrowfully dis-
appointed when the husky College City team with "Chili" Bertoli, John Ransome
and Phil Klein as the nucleus of their attack, defeated the Gold and Wliite team
by a 27 to O score. Alameda was outclassed in the first place, and secondly, did
not play as well as she had in previous games. McCoy, Hurley, Allen, Kulik, Wil-
son, Heberer, Gurley, Agnew, McNeese, Stowe, Schleicher, Hagquist and Gibbs
put in their last game for Alameda. Miller and Little would have done the same
had it I1Ot been for injuries previously sustained.
UR 1929-1950 basketball season opened on October 29th, with the defeat of
the Varsity by the Alumni. The veterans to return this year, Gregory, Niz-
zoli, Vierra, Loring, Lombardi, and Berg, were all experienced men and around
them Coach Otto Rittler built a formidable team.
All the A. C. A. L. games were good battles, but our team always seemed to
lose by a margin of one or two points. The two Piedmont games were very hard
tussles, with Piedmont winning 21 to 19 and 20 to 18. Alameda won third place
in the County League this season.
Richmond and Hayward were suspended for part of the season for the viola-
tion of one of the A. C. A. L. rules, consequently these two teams had to forfeit
all their games. They were, however, reinstated at a later date.
The 130-pound team this year is probably one of the finest we have ever had.
Out of seven league games they won five. Their teamwork was very good and
only the size of the opposing team, Berkeley, kept them from winning.

men. Gregory was Alameda's hi gh-point man, with two baskets and a foul to his

For this game the Alameda boys journeyed to Richmond with both teams com-
ing home victorious. The Class B team won over the Richmond squad, 22 to 11.
The Varsity, with Dave Gregory again high-point man, played a fast game to end
up with a 25 to 18 victory. Gregory scored five ringers, and Captain "Pete" Niz-
zoli four ringers and a foul. This game showed quite a bit of rivalry between the
teams, and the next game, which was to be with Piedmont, was anticipated with

Playing a fast game, the Alameda High quintet traveled to Piedmont and was
defeated by a close 2 1 to 19 score. Piedmont had on their team Emil Cowing, said
to be the best forward in the Alameda League, but the "Hornets" were close on
the heels of the "Highlanders" throughout the game, finishing only two points
behind them. Captain Nizzoli scored twelve points, all of them field goals.

Partly on account of the size of the College City men, the Alameda Varsity lost
to Berkeley, 51 to 24. The Berkeley team led throughout the game, but near the
end Alameda rallied and was at one time only five points behind. Rogers was
high-point man with eight points to his name. In the 150-pound game, Berkeley
sent the Alameda team to the first defeat of their league play. Vargas claimed the
scoring honors with seven points. T
Pieffmmzt 20-Alfmzeffa 18
Climaxing the 1950 season, the Alameda hoopsters played a great game
against Piedmont on the Alameda court. As in the previous game with the "High-
landers," we lost by a close margin. john Lombardi held his own against Emil
Cowing, and Nizzoli, Larson and Rogers showed up well in their respective posi-
tions, but the Gold and Wluite rooters had to be content with their close loss, even
though the boys all played their very best.
NCE again old King Rain just about wrecked Alameda High's baseball
schedule. Of about fifteen games scheduled for the practice season, we
played only eight. Alameda won four and lost four. Witlu practice over things did
not look so promising. At that, all through the season a rejuvenated team worked

In a game that had no bearing on the league title, Alameda again lost to Rich-

first team. Babish, pitcher for Richmond, held the Alameda batters to three hits.
HIS year's track -season developed some outstanding new men to take their
places beside those already prominent from last year. Captain Bill Brooks,
Thornton Nelson, Don Osborne, Will Smith, and Dave Gregory improved on
their work, while Ray Hitchings, Phelps Euler, Eddie Jamieson, jack Beach, and
Dick Ryan came into the limelight to win many needed points for Alameda.
This year the Gold and Wfhite Cinder team succeeded in wresting from Berke-
ley, Piedmont, Hayward, Centerville, and Richmond the honors of the A. C. A. L.
meet. This has been Coach jolley's ambition for some time, and we hope to retain
the honor for a few years in order to keep the titles that the other schools envy.

In this meet Eddie Jamieson starred in the pole vault by vaulting 11 feet, which
rated him equal to Bailey and Gregory in their 1929 A. C. A. L. marks. Out of the
fourteen events in this meet Alameda took ten first places. Nelson and Osborne
tied for first in the high jump.

The California Freshmen seemed to be a little too strong for the husky Ala-
meda men. Nevertheless Brooks took a first in the shot, heaving it 48 feet M inch.
In the high jump Osborne captured first and Nelson tied for second with a Berke-
ley man. Smith placed second in the high hurdles, and Benn jumped 20 feet 11

ALAMEDA COUNTY ATHLETIC LEAGUE MEET
On April 10th the A. C. A. L. meet was held on the California track field.
Leading Berkeley and Piedmont until the end, Alameda came out victorious,
much to the glee of several hundred Alameda spectators. The events in which we
took points follow: 880-Walton, fourth, high jump-Osborne, Nelson, Ball,
tie first, pole vault-Jamieson, Gregory, tie first, 100-yard-Euler, first, 120-yard
high hurdles-Smith, second, broad jump-Benn, fourth, discus-Brooks,
second, shot-Bertoli, first, Brooks, second, 220-Euler, first, 220 hurdles-
Wood, Smith, Beach, javelin-Nova, fourth, relay-Penny, Euler, Ryan, and
The final score was: Alameda, 5295, Berkeley, 4816, Piedmont, 35, Center-
ville, 8, Hayward, 5, Richmond, 5.
NORTH COAST SECTION MEET
Due to the fact that it was a cold, windy day, the boys did not do as well in the
North Coast Meet at Stanford as they should have done. Alameda placed fourth,
after Berkeley, San jose, and Wtttsonville. The points were distributed as fol-
lows: Berkeley, 29, San jose, 1955 Watsonville, 172, Alameda, UM. "Kew-
pie" Ryan took first in the 220. Captain Brooks placed third in the shot and fourth
in the discus. Euler took a third in the 100-yard. After this meet the following
men were chosen to represent Alameda in the State meet: Osborne, Nelson, Ryan,
Euler, Captain Brooks, Hitchings, Boye, and Penny.
OLLOWING up our magnificent victories in track, baseball, and swimming, the
Alameda High tennis team came through to annex the first doubles in the
A. C. A. L. The whole tournament was nearly ours, but lack of practice told in the
end. Harold fSoupj Wils-oti and Tom Greason were the winning pair, and in all
probability these two will win the North Coast Section.
In the second doubles, Charles QChuckj Wilson and Bob Blanchard defeated
Piedmont to enter the semi-finals, but they fell victims to the fiashy first doubles
of Richmond, one of whom is now A. C. A. L. champ in singles.
The five singles were all lost by Alameda, Richmond cleaning up in this class.
No practice matches were held, and this omission probably spelled defeat for
us in the big tournament.

N THE first meet of the season, Alameda High beat the California Frosh squad
by a score of 39 to 56. The outcome of the meet hinged upon the medley relay
which Alameda won, mostly through the work of Gordon Corson and jim Triolo.
The second meet, which happened to be with Palo Alto, was lost because of
faulty judgment in the six-man relay. Corson and Triolo were high-point men
with 13 and 10 points respectively.
In the best meet of the year, Alameda defeated the P. A. L. champions, Sequoia
High, by a score of 50 to 41. Corson won the 50-yard free and 50-yard back stroke,
and Ralph Gilman, the Frosh "wonder," claimed the honors of the 440. '
Alameda won its first and only home meet from Stockton High School before
about five hundred shouting spectators. Stockton has one of the best swimming
teams in the San Joaquin Valley, but we defeated them by a 48 to 45 score.
On May Sth, the swimming team added one more league victory to Alameda's
season score. The team journeyed to the Berkeley High pool, here to face Berke-
ley and Piedmont. Captain Jim Triolo established new A. C. A. L. records in the
100 and the 220, while Corson broke the existing back stroke and 440 records.
Corson was also high-point man of the meet with 15 points, while Triolo and
Manager Fitting gathered in 10 points each.
We thus concluded the most successful swimming season that Alameda has
ever known. V . F
The individual point totals for the season follow: G. Corson, 63 pointsg J. Tri-
olo, 50 pointsg H. Fitting, 20 pointsg R. Gilman, 18 points. '

ITH great shouts and cheers the G. A. A. started its lively career last term
with the Freshman Play Day. The Freshmen were divided into teams rep-
resenting their advisories. This event succeeded in serving as the open door, not
only to Freshmen but also to many others, into athletic interests.
' Then came the Interclub Jamboree. Here the bowling alley of the G. A. A. met
with striking success.
The jinx, a costume party of last term, featured delightful entertainment and
provided a rollicking good time for the many present. Clare Farmer was the
manager of the affair.
The climax of the rerm's progress came at the Spread. Here the awards and
numerals were given out amidst such "ohs,' and "ahs', as the G. A. A. so well
know how to use in expressing their feelings.
A meeting in each gym class for those interested in girls' sports was called at
the beginning of this term, and the short talks which were given on each sport
aroused great enthusiasm.
At the invitation of the University of California, ten representatives of the
G. A. A. were present at a gathering in which all East Bay schools took part.
After witnessing such sports as canoeing, basketball, riflery, swimming, hockey,
and fencing, they were guests at lunch and a splendid entertainment.
Our representatives again took part in a sport meet arranged by the McCly-
monds High School at which such sports as volleyball, basketball, hockey, and
handball were demonstrated.
On the hike to Tennessee Cove, where swimming was the main event, great
was the fun experienced by all participants.

ORE stars in the limelight! Dr .Thompson offered his congratulations, as we
offer ours, to the courageous young amazons who have braved the perils of
our athletic fields in search' of the glory they have now received. The 1T1OSt bril-
liant luminary of all was Ellen Flymm, who received a Block A pin, and a star for
each 500 points above the 1200 points for the Block. Ellen has made 2175 in all.
The next in fame and merit were the three receivers of the Block A: Clare
Farmer, Margaret Coupe, and Elsie Martenusen.
Wiiiged A's were awarded for the lucky possessors of 900 points: Alice Bart-
lett, Grace Ghiorso, Mary-Virginia Elett, and Betty Crawford.
And yet more! Circle Ais went to the 600 point sparklers: Lolita Pritchard,
Jeannette Fitzsimmons, Dorothy Eckert, Olwyn Arnold, Meredith Stowe, Betty
Lewis, Lorraine Spencer, Frances Glover, janet Ferren, Alice Gibson, and Bertis
The G. A. A. will hold their annual Spread some time in the latter part of May.
The honored guests of this occasion will be those who have made points during
the Spring term.
WIMMING had a very enthusiastic turn-out this year at Neptune Beach. The
Red Cross life-saving tests were passed by J. Brown, G. Cotgias, E. Flymm,
L. Pritchard, C. Wallace, and Fitzsimmons.
Witli Miss Elliott coaching, assisted by Manager Marion Gilman, Phyllis Jones,
and Lolita Pritchard, a great deal was accomplished in developing speed and
strokes. The season wound up with a snappy meet in which many of our mer-
maids showed exceptional skill. The winners of the events were: P. jones, 25-
and 50-yard free style, 25-yard back stroke, and diving, G. Cotgias, 25-yard free
style, 25-yard back stroke, H. Nieman, 25-yard free style, 25-yard back stroke,
plunge, life-saving, tandem, E. Flymm, 50-yard free style, plunge, diving,
B. Crawford, life-saving, plunge, breast stroke, tandem, F. Glover, breast stroke,
B. Brock, tandem, G. Bertelson, tandem, J. Ferren, diving.

PEEDBALL this season, managed by Alice Bartlett and coached by Miss Eggert,
saw some fast and exciting games. The Round-Robin system was employed as
in other sports.
Speedball is comparatively new to the school and it is growing steadily in
popularity, especially among the upper classmen. The juniors took highest points
this term, winning six games and losing none. The Freshman and Sophomore
teams each won and lost three games, and the Seniors, unlucky souls, were the
victims of the other team in every contest. .
The winners were: L. Echenberger, D. Eckert, V. Flett, D. Hay, I. Hunter,
R. Kneedler, K. Lorber, D. Lovegren, H. Mallard, E. Martenusen, F. Postel,
C. Ratto, T. Rice, M. Stowe, and B. Talbot.
TUNTS is a new sport for the girls, and it is gaining more devotees each term.
Last semester it was held at noon in the gym, but now it is a full-fledged after-
school sport, coached by Miss Elliott.
Enthusiasm runs high, and the girls have great fun building human pyramids
and the like.
Twenty-ive girls turned out this season, and we all saw the contributions they
made to the Seniorpheums.
The drills symbolizing California and Stanford letters were very clever, and
"The Old Lady in the Shoe" was also very good.
Margaret Coupe was last term's manager of the Girls' Gym Team. Janet Fer-
ren managed this term's team.
VERY popular sport among the girls is hockey. Forty-six would-be halfbacks,
quarterbacks, wings, et cetera, turned themselves over to Miss Stockwell for
instruction and a jolly good time in the way of after-school battles on the hockey
field with their schoolmates. Ellen Flymm, manager, organized them into four
ECZIITIS. Our Scrubs made up one team, the lB's and 2A's combined to form an-
other, and the mighty spirit of the 2B's as usual gave them the distinction of a
solitary unit. The upperclassmen, however, got together to show these 'iupstartsu
that no Soph could get away with a championship while they were in the run-
ning! These two teams were well matched and the battle was very close, but our
juniors and Seniors succeeded in gaining the victory. A. Bartlett, R. Kneedler,
E. Pickersgill, C. Farmer, B. Lewis, O. Arnold, L. Pritchard, E. Flymm, M. Coupe,
G. Ghiorso, and M. Thompson made up the winning team. It is very advanta-
geous for us to have a hockey team in the fall, because when the rain comes later
on and fills up the depressions in the field made by this game, a good freeze re-
sults in a perfect ice-skating pond.

WENTY-SEVEN girls turned out for tennis this fall! This certainly goes to
show that tennis is growing more and more popular and, of course, the keener
the competition, the greater the stakes! ,
Alice Gibson, SB, won the cup and the championship, winning by two games
from Jeannette Fitzsimmons, 1B.
The class winners were: Van Neil, IA, Fitzsimmons, 1B, johns, QA, McDon-
ald, ZB, Spann, 3A, Tweelinckx, 4Ag Groves, 413.
Phyllis jones was manager.
IFTY-FIVE strong, stalwart lassies of Alameda High endured the knocks and
sprained wrists of volleyball in the attempt to gain their numerals and one
hundred points. Under the splendid coaching of Miss Eggert and the dexterous
management of Wynne Lewis, an A-1 volleyball team was produced. The 2B's
made a very good showing with eleven games to their credit, the next in line were
the 4AB's, credited with nine games. But, behold our 3B champions! Not a game
lost out of fifteen tournaments! That is a record that any volleyball player can
appreciate. Those participating were: Olwyn Arnold, Genevieve Caron, Margaret
Coupe, Grace Ghiorso, Muriel Silver, and Melba Thompson.
NEW sport, ice skating, was introduced into Alameda's Athletic Association
this spring, the Oakland Ice Arena furnishing the setting. Quite a large
number of girls turned out, and they surely had great fun slipping, sliding, stag-
gering, and tumbling across the ice. There were very few mishaps, and no casual-
ties. This new sport is a minor one, and the girls will receive twenty-five points

ASEBALL is the good old American standby in sports. About fifty girls turned
out this year in order that Miss Stockwell might develop them into Babe
Ruths and Rodger Hornsbys. The Low juniors won the championship, and the
Low Sophomores made a close second. Peggie Corless was manager.
OW SENIORS! Rah! The four-year champions of the races! Again the Class of
December, '30, won the nautical honors in the final competition which was
held at Lake Merritt. The girls seem to enjoy crew more and more each year judg-
ing by the increasing turnout. Last year we were given nice new oars, and this
year we are in quest of more.
The first big thrill came on April 29th, when the preliminary races were held,
4A vs. 4B, 3A vs. SB, ZA vs. ZB, and Scrub vs. Elevated Scrub. The second big
thrill was felt on May 6th, when the winners raced to decide the championship.
Following the victory of the Low Seniors came a supper which was held at the
Canoe House on the lawn. The girls brought their picnic suppers and Miss
Danielson, coach, treated everybody to ice cream. The defeated crews entertained
the winners with a few ukelele numbers, and then the election for next year's
manager took place, Mildred Kelber being chosen to succeed Mozelle Martin in
The winners were: C. Farmer, E. Ney, M. Wriglit, M. Martin, M. Twining,
B. Lewis, G. Caron, M. Silver, J. Franklin, O. Arnold, H. Wriglut, and E. Toalson.
UR jumping jacks of the basketball teams were great in number and excep-
tional in skill. Under Miss Danielson as coach and Elsie Martenusen as
manager, many exciting games were played. Never before in the annals of our
history has there been such keen competition as that engaged in by the IB, ZB,
and 5A teams. The Round Robin system of tournament was used, and excitement
ran high as the games were played and replayed to determine thevictor. After a
long, fierce, but jolly struggle the 1B's emerged from the conflict elated in their
glory. The honors belong to F. Glover, P. Fleming, D. I-ling, G. Kneedler, J. Fer-
ren, G. Nelson, M. Shurtleff, V. Vargas, and T. Imbrulia.

HREE terms ago riding was once again taken up as a school sport after an in-
terval of a year. Great interest has been shown since then, and many good
riders have been developed.
This sport is held each week at the Lake Aliso Riding School at Mills College,
under the instruction of Miss Cornelia Cress.
On May 1, 1929, the first annual Horse Show at Lake Aliso was staged. Ala-
meda took a place in every event and came back with the cup. On February 5,
1950, four girls from Alameda competed in the Oakland National Horse Show.
Plans are now being made for a Horse Show or an exhibition of some kind on
The second annual Horse Show at Lake Aliso will be held on May 51st in the
Mills College riding ring, and Alameda has high hopes of winning more honors.
The Riding Club is composed of the following girls: Barbara' Zobel, Barbara
Bruntsch, Alice Blinn, Frances Mannion, Hanalla Thomas, Virginia Schultz,
Virginia Shadburne, jane Kahl, Edna Furrer, Charlotte Lawrence, Eleanor Pick-
ersgill, Helen McPherson, Helen Horwege, Rosemary Collier, and Vallora

BACKWARDS FRONT POEM
It was a nice October morning
In September last july,
The sun was shining brightly
And the snow was in the sky.
The flowers were singing sweetly
And the birds were all in bloom,
As I went down to the basement
To sweep my upstairs room.
The time was Wednesday morning,
Last Thursday just at nightg
I saw ten thousand miles away
A house just out of sight.
The door projected rearward
And the front was at its back.
It stood alone between two others,
And all were whitewashed black.
The scene was full of splendor,
The day was dark as night.
